Monster Academy Application: Wilky Lokesson Picture

Name: Wilky Lokesson

Glamor Name: William Goodfellow IX

Age: 300

Glamor Age: 22

Height: 6'0"

Monster type/species: Trickster (Æsir and Jötunn hybrid like his father)



Glamor item: The Goodfellow signet ring.

Natural weapons: The slapstick (a blunt stick/club that is a natural part of his monster form) it may cause a simple thump or a nasty crunch. (Keh keh keh)

Trained weapons: Fencing (for rapier and saber), brawling (has gotten in a few scraps), firearms (mostly flintlocks, but he can learn).

Grade: Freshmen

Current Classes: None

Passed Classes: None



Current Points: 0

Favorite class: Mischief and Mayhem (Keh keh keh)

Worst class: Human Studies (I already spent THREE-HUNDRED bloody years around them, what more is there to know?)

Weakness:

1. While his physicality is great by human standards, he cannot physically surpass a human in terms of strength or speed, thus leaving him at a disadvantage to many of his peers.

2. Like any good trickster, his diet consists of the five major food groups: Sweets, sweets, sweets, sweets, and sweets (Keh keh keh). Since he only eats sweets, he doesn't sleep on a regular basis like most beings. He must also constantly take lots of snack breaks since sugar burns faster than carbohydrates (he can't settle for only three big meals). This is not unlike how a cat takes several small naps as opposed to one long period of sleep. If he goes for a period of longer than an hour without eating something sugary, his powers will begin to weaken. If he goes longer than twenty four hours without sweets, he will fall into a deep sleep of equal length. Upon waking he will be weak and disoriented and suffer symptoms not unlike the common cold, which can only be cured by copious amounts of (you guessed it) sweets, consumed over a period of several days. While artificial sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, Splenda etc.) may be used as substitutes energy-wise, they make him highly irritable and prone to misjudgment.

3. Whilst Tricksters are known for their quick wit and cleverness, they aren't completely immune to someone turning the intellectual tables on them. If someone is clever enough to catch onto a trick beforehand (or just knows enough about tricksters to know to use caution around them) it is possible to turn the tables on them under the right circumstances (See "Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby" for example).


Major Skills:

Shape shifting (Mimic): Can take on the humanoid form and voice of any person for a period of up to ten minutes. Does not, however, gain any knowledge they may possess or access to their abilities. Thus the affects are purely cosmetic in nature. Can only be used once every twelve hours.

Illusion (Substitution): Can create a copy of himself in whatever garb and with whatever item he may have possessed at that instant, thus allowing himself to slip away undetected. The copy can verbally interact with people (through his control) but cannot physically interact with anything. It will disappear if something interferes with it (a spell) or if he gets too far from it (a hundred yards). It will automatically disperse after fifteen minutes.

Pyrokinesis: inherited from his father. He has the ability to bend the element of fire to his will and summon small fireballs. His abilities may increase in strength with time and training, but for now remains relatively simple.



Minor Skills:

1. Agility equivalent to an Olympic acrobat (flips, somersaults, cartwheels etc.)

2. Clever (IQ of 150)

3. Slightly increased stamina due to sugar diet.

Impractical Talents, Hobbies, Interests etc.:

-Wilky likes to play the harpsichord, it being his favorite instrument. He was tutored in its use at a young age, and has grown quite adept over the centuries. He doesn't have much experience with any other musical instruments, but he can get around things with keyboards fairly easily.

-Wilky likes all the big musical stars (of his time), be they Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, or Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He will always prefer the classical tunes of the masters over the "thump, thump" and "wub, wub" music of modernity.

-Wilky loves English things, like tea (if it's sweet), biscuits (cookies), and being better than other people because you were born into a certain family (nobility).

-Wilky likes poking fun at Irish people, and does not trust them. Life as an arbitrary English noble and landowner in Northern Ireland who oversees already irate subjects is never easy. And he's had more than a few run-ins with peasant mobs.

-Wilky has a signature laugh (as all tricksters do), unique to him. While it is impossible to truly represent it in textual form, the closest that can be written is "Keh keh keh..."

Personality: Wilky can best be described as a good humored fellow who loves a good joke…and has no real sense of empathy. His pranks can range from innocent fun to malicious intent, all to for the sake of his own arbitrary amusement. He often comes off in first impressions as charming and gregarious, but this is often just to lull people into a false sense of trust and security. It’s his nature to be deceitful and withhold important details. If he does end up helping someone, you can be assured it wasn’t out of the kindness of his heart, but because he is plotting something. He is also naturally distrustful of Irishmen do to his history of being chased by mobs of them.

However, never be too quick to write him off as a villain, for, like most of his kind, every now and again he may play the hero (err...well "anti-hero" is more accurate). It is also possible to hire his services (for a price). Just lay out some sweets and chant "Clever Wilky come to me to do you mischief" five times (backwards). And wear something funny when you do it, while standing on your head and drinking a glass of red wine. Oh, and don't forget to bring a sixpence stolen from a dead Irishman.

Like: Practical Jokes, Sweets, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", Funny things, Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, the harpsichord, and Money (also inherited from his father).

Dislikes: Not funny things, boring things, bitter things, spicy things, sour things, bland things, serious people, people clever enough to see through his ruse, Dieticians (since they tell people not to eat sugar), and the Irish.

Hates: His father, Loki.

Character's Background: In the summer of 1712, Loki, The Fool King, attended a drunken night of debauchery with his good friends Oberon, Puck, and Titania. At one point he swapped his gender and was knocked up (as had often happened in the past; read Norse mythology for examples). Fearing this Midsummer Night’s Nightmare, Loki decided to dump the newborn on the doorstep of a half-mad, elderly English nobleman in Northern Ireland in winter of 1713, shortly after the child’s birth. He then left to make merry, never again to return to his latest bastard.

The nobleman, one Lord Tobias Goodfellow, took the child in, believing it had been the stork, long overdue, which at delivered his new pasty heir to him. Tobias named the boy William, and raised him with care (as much as a madman could deliver). Because of this, William’s upbringing was only moderately traumatic. As he matured, William began to realize he had “special” abilities, and he used these to get back at the nasty, Irish village children who made fun of his pale, white haired appearance, and proper English accent. In 1733, when William was twenty, Lord Tobias died in a tragic “accident” leaving the estate to him.

William quickly used the money to invest in sugar plantations in Barbados, to supply himself with an ample stream of nourishment and coin. He also used his position to better torment and trick the local populace. Soon, however, he realized he didn’t age past his early twenties, and decided to fake his own death every few decades to avoid suspicion. Taking on the guise of his own son each time, and adding a roman numeral to the end of his name. Then, in 1828, the British government, being the killjoys they were, outlawed slavery, thus ending William’s sugar plantation schemes.

In response, he used his money to establish one of the world’s first factories dedicated to sweets, under the business name Goodfellow Confectionaries. Their sweets became known for the image of Wonky Wilky, a harlequin (in actuality a lithograph of William’s full monster form) that appeared on every box. Needless to say, this set up made William both very wealthy and left him with a steady stream of sweets.
Following his success, he finally received answers to his past from a letter he received from his father, explaining his origins (his father noticed him from the lithograph). William quickly poured over every text he could find on the subjects his father mentioned and began to realize the truth. On that day he took on Wilky Lokesson as his true name, to be spoken to his kind (monsters) and swore to defeat his father for abandoning him and take on the mantle of The Fool King (greatest amongst the tricksters). In order to hone his skills, he has come to Monster Academy, in hopes of one day accomplishing his ambition.
