Name: Alfred Frye
Race: Human/Demonic Contractor
Description: Alfred has thick, slightly curly brown hair and bright blue eyes, as well as pale skin. He dresses in a casually formal manner, with pants in black, grey and brown, and using shirts and knitted sweaters that are at least one size too big. He's not too old, only 18 years old, has sharp eyebrows and eyes. He's 5'9" and has a medium build, though he's often mistaken for being smaller due to the way he wears his clothes. Alfred tends to have an almost bored look on his face, even when he smiles. Many would consider him "cute", especially due to his baby blue eyes, and he gives off a calm, earnest feeling. His accent is rather noticable Welsh, and he wears glasses when around normal people, despite the fact that his eyesight is far better than what it used to be. He favors dark colours and soft fabrics.
That said, his looks can be deceiving. He's very intelligent, both knowledgeable and sly, with a fair amount of cunning alongside. He's polite and very relaxed, and can be considerate and nice, as long as it suits him. To Alfred, everything is split into three categories; things/people that he wants or needs to use, things/people he has no interest in, and things/people standing in his way. If you're the latter, you're troublesome and dangerous, while if you're any of the other he'll do his best to get along, as he prefers to get along with people. Overall, he's friendly and polite, but also greedy and callous. When he's fond of something, however, he is very protective of it, and is often amused by other people, saying he likes seeing them acting like "fools", though he's actually rather lonely. He acts casual and carefree, and while this is part of his true nature, he can overdo it in order to disguise his other traits. He can be rather petty, but would rarely act out on it. Alfred is also surprisingly sensitive when it comes to being disliked or distrusted, at least for someone who can be as callous as him. Alfred represses a lot of his emotions, and is prone to bouts of guilt, though obviously that's not something he lets people know about.
He's not interested in rank or politics, though he keeps it in mind. However, his true ambition is power. He wants to be strong, and would do most anything to gain that power. The fact that living as he does, independent and with loose ties, makes him excited as well, and being too tied down might frustrate him. He's not a loyal person, which makes him unpredictable, but he's not one for throwing away his plans on a whim. He prefers everything to go as he thought it would, and gets frustrated and annoyed when it's not going as he wanted it to, but he's also secretly fond of the excitement and rush that comes with such a situation. He recognizes that working together with Gato is his best shot right now, and it's not exactly a place he wants to piss off. To further this, he's made a deal with the leaders of Gato, a contract of sorts, which gives him the possibility to act more freely, in exchange for his services and a non-violent pact against Gato or their people. To break this contract would result in him being hunted down and likely killed.
Alfred's powers are divided into three cathegories; the wind powers he got from the demon deal, the extraordinary eyesight he got as a "bonus", and his own magical power. The wind powers are protective, agility based and supportive in nature, focusing on shielding him and giving him the ability to fly. His own magical energy is sharp, painful and powerful, potent and dangerous not only to be attacked by, but especially to himself. With the wind abilities its intense nature is altered into a soft, guarding power. The more of his magical energy he uses, the more his eyes glows blue.
Enhanced Eyesight and Hearing: Alfred has enchanted eyesight, a gift from the demon as he was quite nearsighted. He can see about 10 times further than a normal human if he wants to. He also has the ability to hear things from far away, as he has the wind carry the sounds to him.
Wings of Air: Alfred is capable of flying. Rather than levitating, it's more like actual wings made of wind energy. He can't carry anyone else while flying.
Cutting Winds: Alfred can cut into items and people quite easily by using some of his magic in its natural form and mixing it into the slashes of wind. Though the cuts wouldn't be deep enough to, for instance, cut someone's head off, they'll still make someone bleed.
Gale of Support: Alfred can shield both himself and his allies, using a wind that pushes everything that comes at them outwards. The wind also somewhat naturally protects him, stopping those who try to attack him from behind or one of his sides, which means it's difficult to catch him off guard. He can make the wind enhance his or others' movements or add some extra weight to an attack. It can also keep a wound closed for a little while, though it won't heal anything.
Devastating Tornado: His least favourite spell, this is a last resort kind of ability. A large, destructive tornado that rips apart that which gathers around him. Alfred doesn't like it, as it is unpredictable and he can't control it. He'd have to be truly desperate to even consider it.
Photographic Memory: Alfred has photographic memory and can remember everything he's seen, read or heard. This makes him useful for scouting and spying, with the added bonus of that he'll instantly notice is something is different from how it was. It can make it difficult to focus on one detail, though, and especially horrible sights will be forever burned into his memory.
Natural Genius: Even without his photographic memory, he'd still be an extraordinary genius. Alfred is naturally skilled in most activites involving his brain and thinking, though he does have a habit of over-complicating things. He's also bad at seeing things from other people's perspectives, and fails to take strong emotions into consideration. He can fluently speak four languages, which are English, Welsh, French and Japanese.
Undercover Agent: Alfred has been undercover for quite a while now, and before going out in the field, he was trained for the task at hand. Having lived as one of Regalia's people while spying on them, he's become very skilled when it comes to pretending he's something he's not. He's good at gathering information, his eyesight and hearing aiding him when it comes to this, and since he generally has a presence that's not very noticable or impressive, he has a habit of overhearing things.
Gun Mastery Alfred has been trained in the use of pistols, and he owns several, though they are at the moment stored somewhere close to the school. The most peculiar one is one enchanted to fire quietly, with bullets that often tears through weak armor. He's very good at hitting his targets, but prefers to take his time when it comes to aiming, and can be somewhat slow in a combat situation, which is why he tends to be high up and allow his shield to deal with whatever comes his way as he tries to make the best kind of shots.
The exact reason for why Alfred is such a twisted individual is unknown. He was born and raised like a normal child, and though he proved to be a genius, there was nothing out of note in his behaviour, though is photographic memory did make some things difficult. He was bullied for several years for being somewhat of a teacher's pet, but he also had no issue hiding behind a teacher or using his intellect to cruelly take revenge on his bullies, one of them being pushed down a set of stairs on a cold winter's night and breaking several ribs on the freezing ice. The boy would have died if someone hadn't passed by at the time, and Alfred never could tell if that made him feel bad or not. Otherwise, he got along with his family, went to study at an elite university at age 14, and overall, acted like a model son, despite not wanting to study at all. He was also rather isolated as a child.
As he grew up, his sense of justice and ethics faded, and what remained was the lust for power. He wanted to become someone who could conquer the world if he wanted, who could play with the fate of those who stood in his way, even if he has no real ambition about conquering the world. He just wants the power to do so. An excellent student, taking several degrees at a time, several years younger than his peers, he suddenly dropped out and abandoned everything, mostly because of this empty feeling. After spending half a year as a waiter in France, he found out about something new, about the fact that there was a whole other world outside there, hidden behind layers of society. The supernatural. Amazed at the discovery, the 15 year old soon became intertwined in the fight between humans and monsters, demons and the hunters, while holding no loyalties to anyone but himself. A free soul, well, until he sold it anyhow. Because he found a way to gain power, summoning a demon to give him abilities a human could never dream about. It helps that he already had a strong magical potential, albeit one which was difficult to use. The deal was simple, 15 years of his life for the power. Not that he's planning on having lost those 15 years forever, surely there are means of getting eternal life, means he has access now that he's much stronger. His control over his own magical energy was very bad, though, and after an incident -or actually two- with the Vatican exorcist, he needed somewhere to hide. He was directed to Gato, and he doesn't regret it.
Alfred started attending Gato 2 years ago, but he's not very motivated and he tends to leave to do whatever suits him, so he's not passed first grade. His control has gotten better, though. Not that he couldn't do so with his eyes closed. Being a spy is more interesting than repeating things he has heard before, after all, and besides, Regalia has means he can use further his abilities. He just needs to help the supernatural creatures kill them first.
- Alfred pissed off the Vatican back in Europe.
- He's not that likely to betray Gato directly, but he might work towards his own gains nonetheless.
