Age/Apparent Age: 33 (Saiya-Jin; born 14.02.1984) Hair & Eye colour: Long, wild like a waterfall, black hair that reaches just a bit over his shoulders. Caramel brown eyes, with a copper ring around the pupils. Physical Description: On first sight, many people would probably overlook Dain in a crowd. From a distance, he looks like any middle-aged man, with an average height and build. However, those that take their time to take a closer look, tend to find more than they expect. Underneath the spacious clothing hides a very fit body. Dain´s build is that of a sprinter, strong legs and arms yet smooth like water. Like a true athlete he sports a great muscle tone, firm outlining, but never any bulging that could slow him down. He does sport a bit of extra weight near the stomach area. Or as he calls it; his ‘middle-age spread’.
His face looks older than it is. Wrinkles have already been edged into his face and he adorns a full white beard, like a puff of air on a cold winter day. What mostly makes him look old though is the look in his eyes. When he is alone there tends to be no life in his eyes, as if he were looking at something in the far distance that. However those who study him longer tend to find a spark of life deep within his brown eyes and although hidden by his beard, he sports very strong facial features. He has a sturdy jawline, a strong chin with a little dimple and a skin as perfect as a pearl beach. Even his once beautiful black hair is spotting more and more strands of silver.
Despite looking a bit older, he moves surprisingly fluid. Although his movements may seem a bit sluggish, he moves with a certain grace that could be a hint of an upper-class upbringing. In addition, his speech, regardless whether he speaks in Japanese, English, or German, is rather formal. Contrary to his speech and movement though, Dain generally does not care about how he looks or what he wears. He barely owns any clothing and nothing newer than 6 years old. In his free time, he prefers to wear blue jeans, an unbuttoned white shirt and a black tie. Even his hair, once the source of his pride, is now just running down, like a wild river.
This all changes though when he is working. His combat armour clothing is spotless and his hair is combed and tied down behind his head, as regulations prescribe.
Spiritual Description:] Dain´s chi is rather light gray and it swells out of him like a thick fog on a cold morning. As he continues to unleash his reiatsu it will ripple violently like a series of tsunami´s, yet it feels empty as a shade. Those who have felt it, tend to describe it like a bottomless pit. Curiously though is that in intense moments the Chi does seep into his irises, yet they do not turn grey. Instead they turn into a violent yellow, almost as if they are on fire.
MOTIVATIONS: Personality: Dain would by many be defined as a broken soul, a definition he rejects completely. He prefers to call himself realistic. His will to live had been snuffed out of him a long time before his actual demise and even in death he has not recovered. Despite that, or perhaps because of that, he is very social and nice. He always follows every order and rule, written or not, to the letter. He might be a bit dull and without any initiative, but he tends to be friendly and always accepts if he is invited. The odd thing is that he seems to like everything, from racing, to reading books and all day training sessions. Despite having many `friends´ and hanging out with them quite regularly, nobody barely knows anything about him, as he refuses to talk about himself. At least the part where he was still alive.
That is only the outward appearance though, as on the inside Dain is empty. Having been forced to work from an `early´ age, he never had time chase his dreams and in the end gave up on them completely. Having the reality forced down his throat that those without class, money and power have nothing in this world, he realized there was no point in dreaming. No point in trying to achieve something, as it all will be in vain anyway. He believes deep down that trying something for yourself is pointless and has given up completely. He is like a blade of grass, following the wind where it takes him, without even trying to forge his own path.
Perhaps it is because of this empty feeling or this lack of goals, but Dain is almost the embodiment of kindness. He would literally not even hurt a fly, as there would be no point in it. Unless of course he is ordered too, as he knows that it is futile to refuse orders.
However there is one oddity in his otherwise passionless life; reading. He loves to read stories, especially those with a fantasy theme. The kind of stories where a group of nobodies somehow manage to overcome all odds and emerge victorious. He even tries writing those sometimes, but never quite succeeds to finish them as for some reason all the characters tend to die.
All in all Dain is a happy, friendly guy and fun to be around with. Just don´t expect him to do anything on his own accord.
Goals & Achievements: Despite not having any real goals or dreams, believing nothing can come from them, he is okay with living. Despite all his believes and conviction, there is one thing he does know for certain: death does not gain him anything. Unless you have a life insurance off course.
There is only one thing he would truly want; a redo. A chance to live his life again and to make things right.
BACKSTORY: Dain was born as the oldest son of a rich Family on Earth, only to be followed by eleven siblings. Due to a difference in appearance and behaviour from all his siblings he gets kicked out though. On the streets he falls in love with a beautiful girl name Franzisca. They marry and they buy a small house. As she announces she is pregnant, he drops out of high school and he joins the military to support their future family. It is a little girl named Naomi. During his stay in the military, he encounters another Saiya-Jin and finally learns why he is different from all the earthlings. They have a second child, a boy called Peter. Peter is being diagnosed with a rare illness and Dain volunteers for more dangerous missions in space, to be able to pay the bills.
CALL TO ACTION:[/ He has no need for another reason to fight, other than his family on Earth.
Dain shapes his energy for a moment into the form of a sword and as he swings unleashed a slicing energy beam in the form of a half moon.
