Distinguishing Features: Christian has a cybernetic right arm and cybernetic organs to help him along in the field. The arm is designed to carry heavier objects and to not tire him out as fast. The organs are for him not to get sick so sickness won't happen upon him.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Christian is a lively, dangerous individual. He is calm and safe at times, but when angered, he cannot be trusted by anyone with a weapon in hand. War and ground fighting amuses him, his craving for it not angering him upon the war, but thrilling him. When alone, he loves to write about what happens to his parents to inform them of how well he is doing, for he does not like to let them think of him as killed in action. Christian hardly gets angry, for most of his life he scrounged for things on the streets, getting used to being rejected and all other things. The main cause of his anger is when someone badgers him over and over on how his past went. Others may involve extreme mistreatment, torturing (verbally), and when someone makes fun of his family. His interest in war comes from the terrors he witnessed as a small child. As for his interest in love, Christian has always been interested in the two opposites, because from his vision, war is a horrific thing, and love is beautiful, and the meaning of life was to witness horror and beauty before you end up in the grave. Rivers strongly dislikes cramped conditions because when he was a child, he'd been in more open places, not always inside a certain area for too long.

Likes: Wars, love
Dislikes: cramped conditions
Goals: To make the best of himself

History

Family (or Creators)

Natural born, parents location; Nepleslia. Parents' names; Alex and Selena Rivers. No siblings.

Pre-RP

Born in the streets of Nepleslia, Christian's life is hidden. He does not like to tell many of some of the events that happened for bringing back the past for him was hard. He would occasionally tell the people that he could trust entirely. When he was born, Rivers was instantly in poverty. His father had worked for awhile until he was laid off, and Rivers' mother had stopped working upon the birth of Christian. He hardly could ever eat, explaining his scrawnier figure. Rivers usually had to steal food like the rest of his family to survive, causing him to have horrific flashbacks when explaining his past. The certain people that he would tell his past life to he believed could soothe him if he went into a rampage or broke down, crying. Rivers had also been beaten by older children through out his life, making him love the horrors of war, sort of like “Revenge of his Past”. When badgered repeatedly, Rivers would get defensive, and the more it went on, the more he went to growing to the point where he'd be homicidal to anyone around him. Finally, when he got older, his parents couldn't put up with his talk of war, so they threw him out to be put some where so he could taste the truth of war, causing Rivers to wander the streets far from where he was born and raised. He missed his parents for a certain amount of time, and tried to forget about loving war, but it was useless. In the process, he built layers of barriers around his past so others couldn't see his raw past, but when annoyed enough by one, he would either fight them or break down and let his barriers fall, revealing his past. Though they had thrown their son out into the streets, Christian's parents still wanted to have a strong family bond while he attempted to get into war, and he graciously accepted it, writing to them as much as he could. Within time from writing to his parents, Christian found a new emotion… Love. He seeks to find one right for him, but to of no avail. In his childhood, Christian was sickly and weaker than most. This caused him to find a way to get cybernetic parts to try to get stronger and healthier for the life he seeks. When he managed to find and obtain this goal, Rivers began strenuous training to help build himself to greater heights. His past hunger left him with the scrawnier figure that is now irreversible, causing him to look the way he does. To get into the army, Rivers kept training and training, trying to find links to get him into the military easily, but failed in doing so. He went to the nearest area to sign up, literally dropping onto his knees and begging the people to let him in, saying things like; “I've got nowhere to go! My parents threw me out because of my love for this line of work!”.
