Angus Damon Rex,
debuting as Zeus.Can you believe it
There is a little of animal
Who wants to misbehave
And from now on
We're gonna try to keep
That guy on stage
FULL NAME: Angus Damon Rex
NICKNAME(S): Angie, Rexall
AGE/DOB: Eighteen, birthdate March 2nd
GENDER AND SEXUALITY: MALE and HETEROSEXUAL, and also celibate. HOLY SHIT.
FAIRYTALE CHARACTER: Zeus. King of Gods. Kthnx.
POWERS Angus has at least some pull over all the elements, usually connected to his mood. He can also cast spells and has super strength. His most practiced ability is throwing lightning.
FACE CLAIM: Jensen Ackles
ANY DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: None really, Angus is pretty ordinary. Granted, he's pretty big and muscly, but that just comes from participating in the highland games. Oh, he's super fucking tall. Well not SUPER. Six foot seven. Pretty damn tall.
<3 MEAT. All kinds. Angus could put away a whole slaughterhouse if he really tried. It comes from being in a big Scottish family. SO YES HE DOES LIKE HAGGIS.
<3 SCOTLAND. Holy shit is Angus ever a patriot. If you badmouth his native land he will not have any bones about making sure you NEVER do that again.
<3 WOMEN. Doesn't really act on it though. The whole celibacy thing tends to get in the way. Women like him too. He just never acts on it.
<3 CRIME TV SHOWS. All of those police process shows? Eats it up. Loves it. He loves action movies too, everything of that general area.
<3 ACTIVISM. He's not really like...you know, some sort of crazy-ass peta sign waver. And he doesn't get naked and sit in cages. Rather he's more worried about the fickle nature of people in the world. And tends to walk around with patches on his backpack that say stuff like SAVE DARFUR. That sort of thing. Also Women's rights. Very conccerned with that. It's a bit of a guilt trip from his spirit being who he is.
<3 PARTYING. Good attitudes or not, his desire to have a really effing good time stems from his spirit. And he tends to get a little out of control. Like...one time he woke up in Vancouver naked without any ID after a particularly wild party in his sixth year.
<3 SLEEP. He's missed days before. When he gets into a lazy rut he wants to stay there.
<3 BEER. Alcohol in general. He actually typically keeps a flask on hand. He doesn't have a problem...per say. Actually due to his size it takes a lot to get him loaded. So it's nothing if he as three or so over the course of an hour. He's fine.
<3 ACADEMIA. He likes to learn. Nuff said.
<3 GREECE. It's a neat place. He got a chance to go a couple of years before. He sort of wants to be an archaeologist now.
<3 MAGIC. It's rad. He likes that he can do it.
<3 MUSIC. He's pretty talented at it. Plays the bagpipes, among other things.
</3 HIPPIES. ARRRRGGHHH. HE HATES THEM. Granted, he's ALIGNED with them in some senses, but he hates them for being furiously impotent or furiously self-righteous.
</3 MISOGYNISTS. More god guilt. People aren't playthings. This includes women. Anyone who thinks otherwise sucks hardcore in his books.
</3 FEMINISTS. Well, not women who believe in women's righs. That's fine. That's excellent even. But he HATES feminazis. You know, the kind who hate men. In his mind YOU CAN'T BE AN ENLIGHTENED PERSON IF YOU HATE A SECT OF PEOPLE FOR A BIOLOGICAL TRAIT THEY WERE BORN WITH. Men are like any other group. They were born men. They didn't choose to be. It just happened. Don't hate on the pure fact that somebody has a penis.
</3 STEREOTYPES. If you're so insecure that you prescribe yourself to a certain thing and all the dogma that goes along with it, Angus doesn't want to be around you.
</3 PEOPLE WHO USE SEX TO GET WHAT THEY WANT. Failures, in his opinion.
</3 THE ENGLISH. RARRRR. Self-explanitory.
</3 GREEK MYTHOLOGY. Holy shit is it ever disturbing. He doesn't like to think about it.
</3 ZEUS. Even MORE disturbing. There's nothing cool about being a serial rapist who routinely fucks their sibling.
</3 STRAWBERRIES. He's allerigc.
</3 HANGOVERS. He has yet to find a spell that can rid him of that.
</3 NOT BEING ABLE TO WORK HARD. Being of a more divine persuasion, not a lot of things come difficult to Angus, and he finds that bothersome. He seeks out things he's bad at to work on.
! RESILIANT! Seriously. Nothing stops him if he has a goal.
! TOUGH AS NAILS. It takes a lot to take him out. Like A LOT. Granted, he typically abstains from fighting in a non-patriotic sense.
! POWERFUL. He can do magic like nobody's business.
! INTELLIGENCE! Not a genius, but pretty smart.
! RESPECTFUL/HUMBLE. He doesn't have an ego in any sense. Years of living in a lower middle class farm on the Aberdeen outskirts will remove the inflated head like crazy.
> INARTICULATE. He's not a very verbose person, especially when angry. Comes off kind of dumb.
> SELF-CONSCIOUS. He's afraid of turning into a person more like Zeus and tends to inhibit his emotions and behaviours as such.
> CAN APPEAR EMOTIONALLY DISTANT. He's not. He just appears to thrive on the good times a little superficially. That's not true, it's just that he's afraid to form deep connections for fear of Zeusing out and destroying them.
> KIDS. He can hate them like all hell, but he can't bring himself to take action against them.
> PAIN. He doesn't have much of an understanding of it, being basically invulnerable. He understands it emotionally, but not much in the physical sense, and it bothers him.
~ Become an archaeologist.
~ Live in Greece for a year.
~ Learn both ancient and modern greek.
>> Becoming like Zeus sexually.

>> Developing a god complex
ANY HABITS OR QUIRKS:
+ Bites his lip.
+ Cracks his knuckles.
= His fears, mostly
OVERALL: Angus is that guy that you meet at a party who you talk to for five minutes and then he runs off to go streaking or duct tape a lamp to a sleeping guy's face. The difference between that guy, typically, and Angus is that the next day, if he's around and he sees you, Angus will probably you know who you are. He's a very friendly creature, like flamingly, but sort of superficial in the sense that he looks and feels very much like a friend-whore. He thrives on having company, but is typically scared to open up. Granted, this isn't typically a big deal in high school or anything, and it actually kind of helps him romantically, but the end result is that he kinda comes off as a jerk, which isn't something Angus is all that crazy about. Because it's not so much that he's a jerk, it's that he doesn't know how to make really solid connections, and he's sort of shy. He's simply never learned how. He's as nice, empathetic, good as they come, but isn't so good at showing it for real.
Not to say that he's fake in any sense. He's just overly party-hearty and superficial. So Angus tends to come off as, well, a bad guy, though it's simply not true in any sense. Just sort of...inhibited, because of his spirit. It seriously impacts him in his every day life. He tries not to let it dictate how it makes him behave, but this isn't the spirit of like...a woodland creature, or even an evil monarch of some kind. This is the spirit of a god. The effing king of gods. And it leads him to be sort of...frightened of what that spirit can do to him. He doesn't really act like Zeus from myth all that much. As it stands, he's a whole lot like Zeus from the movie. But that in itself was so grossly innacurate that it's sort of hard to believe in any sense. It's because of Zeus that he's decided to become celibate. Zeus was notorious for his sexual exploits, and not in a good way. The amount of partners and the dangerous way in which he acts is enough to make anyone endowed with that spirit beyond frightening.
And Angus swore to himself upon finding out that he wouldn't let himself become that way. He'd be better than that, because really, if he didn't, there was no way of guessing how he would have ended up. It was a good thing he was raised to be humble by two parents who knew their way around traditional hands-on parenting. Angus feels lucky to have been raised the way he did. They saved him from hmself in just about every sense of the word. That said, besides that, Angus is relatively you're normal fairly popular friendly guy. He's the kind of guy that most people want to be friends with.
PARENTS: Moira and Osian Rex
SIBLING(S): Torren, Dion and Magda Rex
OTHER IMPORTANT FIGURES: Pet goat named Buck
HOMETOWN/HOME AWAY FROM GRIMM'S: Aberdeen, Scotland
OVERALL:Angus was born in Aberdeen in the early spirng as a middle child to two hardworking, middle class parents who behaved in a very traditional sense. That being there were three things to know whilst growing up in the Rex household. The first being that if you knew what was good for you you ran as soon as mom raised her hand, you better fucking pull your weight, and if dad was drunk, you got to join in by the time you reached his chest height. Extremely traditional. Almost stereotypical, until you realized that these weren't backwoods quaint charicatures of a Scottish family. No, Angus' mom was a highly payed psychologist teaching at the university of Aberdeen to some very very eager grad students, and dad was a chef.
Angus' mom and dad divided the task of raising several kids pretty evenly. Mom popped them out, so she got to take a break more or less for the first six months, save for breast feeding, and dad carried the weight, then dad got a break by the time another kid was old enough not to shit on himself while the younger child was shitting on herself. And so it sort of went down a familial hierarchy of raising.They all sort of looked after eachother, and Angus grew up rather enjoying that. Up until he finished primary school and things started happening that his parents were NOT alright with. It sort of happened around the same time that Angus was hit by a truck and the truck suffered, and he got mad and threw lightning at one of the neighbour kids after a football game.
Yeah, Angus happened to notice around then that he wasn't normal. And for a long time neither his parents nor his siblings were able to explain what was going on, and that rather frightened Angus. Because he could tell that they were afraid of him as well. And that was rather horrifying for the little boy. In a sea of tears over the next couple months more things started happening to the worry of his parents, until one day a letter came from Grimm's. And everything sort of made sense. But, unfortunately, being an educated family Angus' siblings and parents all sort of knew what came with...well...zeusishness. And they were scared.
And Angus was scared. He didn't want to leave. But upon his parents urging, he eventually made it to Grimm's, and came back on holidays to find to his parents relief that those same incidents weren't happening any more. And he was able to control himself. And that was pretty great. Particularly for Angus, because that meant that his parents weren't having a mini-bowel movement every time he shouted at one of his brothers, or decided to juggle lawn equipment in the back yard when he was bored. So yeah, Angus' domestic situation actually improved a hell of a lot from him being away from time to time to get a handle on his powers.
