And next up in the profile queue is Hesue’s Other, whose stats pretty much line up with Hesue’s, only oppositely so I could have grouped them together I guess, but hey, I wanted to draw him since I rarely do it and so he gets a profile page all of his own.
PROFILE : OTHER
(Other’s preferred form)
Name : Other (or rather, he’s nameless in the back story and only ever referred to as such)
Age/Birthdate : n/a (Ageless – Timeless) – when in child form, he takes on the resemblance of a 12 year old boy, when in adult form, he looks to be about mid 20’s. Both are illusion only.
Height : In child form : 4’11” . In adult form : 6’2”
Weight : both child and adult – n/a
Eyes : Solid Robin’s Egg blue with an iridescent shine.
Hair : White shaggy, usually held up in two ponytails while in child form. In adult form it’s often very long and kept in double braided plaits that cascade down his back.
Race : Unknown
(Other’s adult form)
Personality : Other’s only real concern is winning the games he and Hesue play. He is selfish and unbelievably cruel. The only other thing in existence that he truly holds emotion for beyond himself is Hesue, whom he both loves and hates at the same time. He feels more of an attachment for his daughter and Hesue’s daughter than Hesue does, but it’s easily forgotten whenever the mood hits him.
He’s fickle, forgetful, (he can forget things for years, tens of years, even thousands at a time) and unless you can keep his interest, he has no issues with killing/maiming/mutilating/all of the above you until you “break”. He thinks of all life beyond his own, Hesue’s and their daughters as “toys” and treats them as such when he wants to “play”.
Unlike Hesue however, he rarely picks favorites amongst his toys and his rules for them are often far stricter than Hesue’s are for his own. Where Hesue tends to be the more chaotic of the pair, Other is the straight line perfectionist. He’s also the more serious of the pair and because of this, his cruelty can be a hundred times more astute. His impassiveness in his views tends to be programmed into his toys on a genetic level (case in point, the Angels) and while there have been flukes here and there in his creations throughout the years, for the most part his purposeful designations cannot be undone, even when evolution takes place (case in point again, the Angels).
Physiology and Bio : Other is one half of a whole being. He is a separate entity on both a physiological sense as well as a mental one from Hesue, but he needs his other half in order to survive. Despite this fact, he and Hesue are completely incompatible with one another on a molecular level. Their true origin is unknown and how many others of their same race are out there roaming somewhere is also an unknown. The only constant of their origins is that they come in pairs and are genderless with no true physical form. They are for the most part, solely a ‘consciousness’ until they choose to solidify. They refer to one another as their “Other”.
Exactly like Hesue, Other’s solid form consists mainly of a mercury-like substance and he can change the mass of this substance to suit whatever form he decides to take on (or to put it simply, he can shapeshift). The forms he can take have very little restraints in terms of mass and size and when solid, while he can lose body parts, limbs, and even his head, it will not harm him due to the fact that the solidity is all illusion to begin with.
There is very little that can actually damage him and he possesses an infinite manner of abilities -including, but not limited to: shapeshifting, mind hopping, mind control, uncharted magic use, telepathy and they can create (soulless) life when united with his Other. He is often labeled as a “God” by both his creations and those he chooses to present himself to, regardless of the form he shows. Though unlike Hesue, he rarely shows himself to his creations and rarely takes a personal hand in what his creations do once he’s finished making them. This is mainly because he’s a lot more thorough about the genetic makeup of his “toys” during the creation period and feels less of a need to immerse himself in the ongoings due to his overconfidence in his own abilities to “get it right on the first try”.
Other and Hesue spend most of their time playing games that mainly consist of wagers each strive to win by any means necessary. Neither of them are adverse to cheating in order to win and do it all the time, despite the adamancy of “fair play” that is often written into their agreed upon rules during game-play setup. Other and Hesue do not exist in linear lines and do not see, think or are subjugated to the flow of time. They basically spend their lives wandering from galaxy to galaxy, looking for habitable planets on which they can play their games.
