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?
What or who actually holds their allegiance?
If forced to choose between country and family, what do they choose? Why?
If war breaks out, do they fight? How do they fight?
What kinds of special or unique jutsu do they possess?
Do they have any special rank or title or security clearance?
Can they straight-up be bought?
What are they most willing to give up to win the war?
What will they not do? What is their breaking point?
What will get them invested in a fight? What will break their resolve?

Who are they close with?
Who do they care most about?
Who do they hate most? Why?
What do they have that can be used against them?
What is most valuable (item) to your character?
Who is the most valuable person to your character?
What is the most valuable ideal/concept to your character?

What do they want most? physically, emotionally, ideologically, etc

Where is your character formally/officially allied to?
-Neji is a shinobi of Konoha and thus duty-bound to the village and Fire Country.

What or who actually holds his allegiance?
-Obito has his loyalty, and Neji's also pledged his allegiance to Hinata.

If forced to choose between country and family, what does he choose? Why?
-It depends. If it's his team and the two people in all of Hyuuga he counts as family, he'd choose his loyalty to them. If it was Hyuuga in general, he's likely to choose his country over clan.

If war breaks out, does he fight? How does he fight?
-Yes, of course Neji fights. He'll go to the front lines or work from the shadows as directed, utilizing a combination of ninjutsu and lethal taijutsu.

What kinds of special or unique jutsu does he possess?
-Neji's bloodline is the Byakugan, eyes that allow him to see chakra in a 360 degree field of vision, pierce solid objects, and cover long distances.

Does he have any special rank or title or security clearance?
-Yes, Neji is a Jounin ANBU of his village, allowing him clearance to a lot of sensitive information.

Can he straight-up be bought?
-Not with money, no. He has little use for wealth.

What is he most willing to give up to win the war?
-He'd give up his life if it meant winning the war or just protecting the people he loves.

What will he not do? What is his breaking point?
-Neji absolutely refuses to be controlled, would rail against anyone that tried with a violent will edging on insanity. Being so bound to anyone (again) would break him.

What will get them invested in a fight? What will break their resolve?
-Threats to his country, village, teammates, girlfriend, or immediate family would get him invested in any conflict. His own failings or ineptitude would be a harsh blow to his pride and resolve.

Who is he close with?
-Neji's very close to his teammates, father, Hinata and Temari.

Who does he care most about?
-If pressed to choose just one person, Neji would probably go with his father, Hizashi.

Who does he hate most? Why?
-Neji hates the elders of his clan, and thus the majority of the Head Family of Hyuuga for the seals upon the brows of the Branch family, but mostly because of the seal on his father, and how powerless and miserable it made him, made them both. It serves as a constant reminder that they're forever at the mercy of their own clan. More loosely, he hates anyone that abuses their power over others.

What does he have that can be used against him?
-Neji's seal can be used by select members of his clan to inflict great pain or even death. More broadly, he has a relationship with Temari in Sunagakure and thus the alliance between their respective countries is important to him. And of course, the other people he loves are guaranteed to be effective bartering chips.

What is most valuable (item) to your character?
-Neji's not really materialistic, so I can't say. His headband maybe, for it covers his seal?

Who is the most valuable person to your character?
-At the moment, his father.

What is the most valuable ideal/concept to your character?
-Personal freedom.

What does he want most?
-Neji's most desperate wish is for him and his father's seals to be removed.
