permissions & deals

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!

Rumple makes deals. He usually asks you to bargain away part of your soul, in a way, so what he wants to take away in the trade is typically valuable TO YOU or will be valuable/necessary for his plans shortly.
& I Help Them? Yes, Indeed.
So here I'm asking if he may bargain with your character.

NOTE: He very rarely forces someone into a trade. Your character can up and walk away if they haven't made the deal yet. Once you're part of the deal, however, there are very few loopholes you can use to back out of it, so do not enter into a deal lightly. Just remember: Magic ALWAYS comes with a price.

And if there's a plot you can foresee Rumple as part of--either an item or ability yours has that he might have a use for, or something your character so desperately wants--let me know!
What I want from you is... Your Plots.
Additionally, please feel free to let me know of ongoing unrelated plots, because he has his nose in everyone's business (whether they know it or not). I am not nearly as all-seeing as he is, sadly.
Friends on the Other Side.
He also is a seer and can thus predict a little something. In threads, we'll discuss this so that it's probably a case-by-case situation. If you do not want him predicting your character's actions ever let me know in a comment below.




Want to make a deal?



Sometimes Rumple will approach you. Other times, you may want something that only he can provide. If the latter is the case, feel free to comment at his personal contact post and he will see about making arrangements.



In addition to plots, the following are things that might be useful to know for my purposes in approaching your character/s. I'll take anything you're willing to write down for me, as well as information for (a) how Rumple might obtain this information (if he doesn't already know it), (b) if he's allowed to know it, and (c) what he might do with it.

Where is your character formally/officially allied to?
Argilla was born in Iwa and kidnapped young. At this point, she's thought to be dead by her home village, so her only allegiance is to the Embryon at this point and likely to remain so moving forward.

If forced to choose between country and family, what do they choose? Why?
The Embryon are her family, she will ALWAYS choose them. Summoning Island is just a place that they happen to be able to be themselves without fear of repercussions or attack. But it's only a place and if Serph decided the Embryon needed to move for the tribe to continue she would follow. Ultimately she's home wherever her tribe is everything else is superfluous.

If war breaks out, do they fight? How do they fight?
She just fought a war. She fights with powerful earth release and in her demon avatar form. She has terrible physical skills but her arms are fantastic whips in that form and her hands shift when in whip form to be deadly bone blades protruding from where her hands should be. She's deadly in shurikenjutsu. And she's a fantastic healer.

What kinds of special or unique jutsu do they possess?
She is deadly with shurikenjutsu. Perfect accuracy when she isn't tuning. When she is tuning (in demon form) she a powerful ninjutsu user, spamming earth release like it's no one business and with fine enough chakra control that she is her tribes most talented healer. Well enough to leave few signs that they were ever injured to begin with.

Do they have any special rank or title or security clearance?
Argilla is one of the five core members in the Embryon's power structure. Primarily she's their doctor and tribe mommy. She is aware of the majority of the tribes plans and manuevers and is heavily featured in a number of the plans.

Can they straight-up be bought?
For money? No. Money won't keep her warm at night like the tribe does.

What are they most willing to give up to win the war?
Her disgust with her need to eat people in order to survive.

What will they not do? What is their breaking point?
Argilla is a deeply loyal person. She cannot stomach betraying anyone for the betterment of tribe no matter how much sense it makes logically. Being betrayed by someone that was supposed to be loyal to her tribe.

What will get them invested in a fight? What will break their resolve?
She will be invested in any fight against someone that betrayed her or her tribe. She'll be even more invested if their particularly slimey and disgusting. If she has a reason to want them dead she'll be invested easily. To break her, threaten someone she loves. Take them hostage and put them in a life-threatening situation. Put her in a position where she has to kill them in order to keep moving forward. Best and strongest bet is to make her have to kill one of the other core members of her tribe (Serph, Gale, Heat, Cielo, or Sera). Though word of warning if you make her do that, she'll have no reason to not go after him next.

Who are they close to?
Easily she is closest to Gale. They balance each other out.

Who do they care most about?
Serph, Sera, Gale, Heat, and Cielo are her most important people.

Who do they hate most? Why?
Bat. He betrayed his tribe leader and thus the Embryon who were allied with his tribe. And after she killed his tribe leader after Jinana lost herself to her demon avatar, he ate her. He's slimey and selfish, and he's super gross. (He gives off that creepy woman-hating feel, and I sort of headcanon that he really wanted to rape Argilla.) Only problem with that is he's dead, she kind of blew him up along with a good number of soldiers from another tribe in a trap after they rescued Sera. (This is part of why Gale is her other half honestly.)

What do they have that can be used against them?
She's in conflict over her new diet. If you can convince her you have a cure she will do just about anything asked of her.

What is the most valuable item to her?
Her tag ring? It stores all the information about her on it. You can thank the scientists for that little ditty.

Who is the most valuable person to your character?
Canon made a really strong argument for her greatly valuing Jinana. But she's dead so second to Jinana would be the rest of the tribes core power group. As mentioned Gale balances her with his logic to her emotive tendencies, but she doesn't value any one of the core over the other. They all have their strengths that benefit the tribe.

What is the most valuable ideal/concept to your character?
Camaraderie.

What do they want most?
To be normal again and never have to eat people.
