The Story

+LION OF BLACKFIELD+

As a new student to Blackfield and a young man brimming with arrogance and a self-assured confidence that he did not yet deserve, Dalton often found himself butting heads with the faculty and his fellow students. Both before and during his activation Dalton was a violent influence upon his fellow students, often finding small reasons to punish or correct them. He declared himself the ‘Lion of Blackfield’, and the Academy was to be his little domain to rule. It was a slow process, but eventually Dalton’s priorities shifted closer to protection.

+THE FIRST SWORD+

When the god-child Azrael slaughtered half the Venetian Council and marched into Haven with his supporters announcing his plans to eradicate those with devil’s blood and open a portal to Hell it was the Order and Samaritans that brokered the most initial resistance as the Hand leadership threw their lot in with Azrael. It was this decision that served to make Dalton a near-lifetime member of the Order, where he fought side-by-side with his bond-sister Briar, eventually being promoted to the role of First Sword.

+SON OF MARS+

As time went on Dalton died, and returned from the grave, and was soon abducted from Haven by the god Jupiter, and spirited off to Anupharis, and Elvana. It is during this time that the man spent over a decade serving beneath Mars as a champion of the god. He was joined by his angel, Selene, and their relationship blossomed until a son was born. In time they returned to Haven despite the life they had built in the Realms, only for Dalton to disappear again shortly - apparently killed in a plane crash.

Quirks

ø Mostly good, but not always nice

ø Always a devil, never a demon

While Dalton typically errs on the side of doing the right thing, he has shown in the past a certain flexibility when it comes to doing it in the nicest ways. The devil has proven himself more than willing to use the methods employed by the corrupt upon the innocent right back upon them.

While the most commonly accepted term for those with the shared blooded state as Dalton is demonborn he prefers the term devil himself, and goes about correcting people when referred to with other terms. Is this another archaic term that the man picked up during his upbringing, or is there a difference between the two?


ø Living on the edge of a blade


ø Sinned, scarred, shamed

To be a supernatural that attempts to control their own desires is to live your life on the edge of a blade, only ever one poor decision away from slipping into corruption and the risk that you’d be unable to claw your way out.

It is readily apparent that Dalton enjoys combat, and the suffering that comes with it - though he attempts to use this enjoyment of his for good more so than ill.

It is difficult to find a part of Dalton that hasn’t been damaged in some way or another, having made a habit of throwing himself in danger without thought for his own safety. Not every scar of his is physical and there are some beneath the surface that cut deeper than any blade.

His mistakes haunt him just as much as anything else, and despite his often self-assured words and actions they linger upon him as a weight. There is a reason, after all, that the man has not returned to the deepest parts of the Godrealm after his sudden reappearance from the grave.

Soundtrack

"Arsonist's Lullabye" - Hozier

All you have is your fire

And the place you need to reach

Don't you ever tame your demons

But always keep them on a leash


"Never Gonna Change" - The Broods

And I hate that I can't say your name

Without feeling like I'm part of the blame

And it's never gonna feel quite the same

But it's never gonna change


"Natural Villain" - The Man Who

Used to wear it on my sleeve

Now I keep it tucked away

Let it bubble on the surface

Save it for a rainy day
