Mikhailovich "August" F. Shapiro
, but he wouldn't mind being called as simply Mikhail (if you can figure out his real name)
: PlantHair color:
August had bleached his hair until it was completely white, he originally had red-brown hair. Though he was been bleaching his hair for as long as he can remember, so there isn't anyone who's seen him with his natural hair color (save for people from his past-)Eye color
: Lime GreenHeight
: 6'0 ftWeight
: 73 kgNationality
: Major ArcanaCard
: XV The DevilAbility
: Hell's Fire: Ability to control black fire
: August can create and manipulate black flames to attack his opponents, but he often does so by fusing the flames into his weapon of choice. Though he does use the flames as they are, he enjoys doing close combat when he fights.
: The flames here are relatively harmless (well, physically-wise, at least) but it engulfs the person targetted in fire, causing the victim to see illusions. August has the choice to manipulate the illusions or let the victim's heart wander and unconsciously control it.Ability Limitation
: Controlling Hell's Fire takes a tremendous amount of physical and mental strength, should August lose control it could cause the area around him to be destroyed/ damaged (including the people in saide area) If he uses his ability for too long (especially for Offense) it physically strains him and he can even start bleeding in random places (bleeding of eye sockets, nosebleeds, coughing of blood) until he ultimately collapses or deteriorates his body. This is unless he concentrates his ability in a medium; It will put less strain on him, hence the fusion in weapons
For Illusions, he can only control them for a set amount of minutes, it depends on his victim's will-power and mental capability. Though, the problem with using illusions is he cannot fight physically, so in a way he is at his most vulnerable.Weapon of Choice
: Though he likes using sharp things, he prefers using the Short Blade

The Devil is not as frightening a card to interpret as the depiction on most cards indicates. It is a card about bondage but often this bondage is metaphoric and internal. With this card you are called to look beyond superficial appearances and to go deeper into the truth and meaning of a situation.
On the outside, August seems like a carefree person, never serious and always seen smiling. He enjoys messing with people, teasing some certain individuals he deems interesting relentlessly. He is cheeky and humorous and often does what ever he wants most of the time. However if push comes to pull, August has the capability to be dangerous and menacing. His teasing goes different ways, as either a sign of affection/ comradeship or utter mockery to the people he dislikes. He is not the type of person to just throw his trust to anyone he meets, often he would test the waters; observing their character and telling lies to discern the truth. But once he trusts someone, he will become loyal to that individual (in fact he'd most likely tease them even more-) August is also ridiculously proud, he will not ask for help from anyone, even if his life is threatened. He has this 'he-knows-everything-yet-won't-reveal-anything' sort of demeanor sometimes and this can make him come off as arrogant sometimes (it's like he treats some/most people stupid). August always meddles in people's affairs but god forbid anyone should dare do the same to him. Despite his shortcomings though, can be fiercely protective of the people he cares about.
Long story short: He's a little shit.History
: To August, his past is just one big blurry blob that even he can't properly explain. He very little about himself and his origins…
He was 23 years old when he regained consciousness in a hospital; wounds bandaged and covered up, and head throbbing. When the doctor came in to check up on him, he explained that an old couple had found him in the forest, collapsed and bleeding. When asked who he was and how he even got there, August shook his head and said “I don’t remember.” It wasn’t hard to conclude that he had amnesia, and with no possible relatives to call, the doctors were stumped at what to do. But there were three things he remembered though. One was that his name was Mikhailovich Augustine F. Shapiro, Two was his fighting abilities and the last, was that he needed to look for a girl.
A girl named Tanya Belmount.
The name alone brought back flashes of memories, shards of events—but none ever seemed to make any sense to him. After a few days of staying in the hospital, August came to the conclusion that maybe this Tanya knew who he was. And with that thought in mind, he decided to search for her. As time passed he remembered small bits of his past as well; an organization (which he wasn’t really sure if he was part of or not), multitudes of people in coats, a lady dying in front of him. Not to mention the odd ability of using black flames. If there was anything clear in his past that he remembered, it was his skill as a fighter—it was as if his body never forgot how to use it.
Eventually his journey brought him to Italy (age 24) where he took on the job as an informant so that he can easily collect income as well as find any traces of his past. Eventually the Don of a secret mafia caught wind of a man looking for someone (or something) and noticed his abilities as well, so an invitation was issued to him. August, seeing this as a golden opportunity, decided to accept the offer. After all,
"If he's going to make use of me, I may as well make use of him too."
**Please note that this is not his full history, more will be revealed through rps (Also the full story I typed put was like 1000+ words-- I CANT POST THAT HERE--)Quote: "I'll show you how to use everything and everyone available, so lets be friends, yeah?"
