SCREAMS ALMOST DONE WITH FINALS I HAVE ONE LEFT I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO STILL DON'T LOOK AT ME I KNOW I SHOULDNT BE APPLYING TO GROUPS BYE
:iconcolorimetry:
Name: Faris Yan (Feyris Nyan?)
Age: 30
Gender: Male
Height/ Weight: 178cm/5'10" - 69kg/152lb
Nationality: English/Chinese
Faction: Blue-Purple | 0000FF-800080
Color codes: #D8BFD8 thistle | #8B7B8B thistle 4

Personality traits: charming | charismatic | vague | flirtatious | good-humored | collected | manipulative
Faris is a man with a seemingly impenetrable exterior. He's always cool, he's always charming. He knows when's the right time to make his move and when's the time to back off. He's the kind of person who appears to know all the "right things" to do and say, but playfully pushes the boundaries for fun anyway. When things don't go his way seems to brush it off and doesn't bat an eye, in fact, he smiles and accommodates. He loves listening to others talk about themselves but rarely offers much about himself in return other than the trivial or superficial. He's a huge flirt, but a gentleman--flirting with literally anything that moves regardless of age, gender, attractiveness etc. but despite his playful (and subtly aggressive) flirtations he would never pressure anyone and actually treats his peers and clients with respect. Then again, he's not opposed to a little hanky-panky fun but as a rule he very, very rarely engages in "activities" with clients.
All that said, Faris is merely good at projecting a cool image due to his calculating and thoughtful nature (and perhaps simply due to his age/life experience). He's by no means indestructible and while he's got experience in hiding it he actually can take things pretty hard. He's got a lot of flaws, one being that he's unreliable and hard to get close to. While he gets the job done and is loyal to his faction he is completely untrustworthy on a personal level, especially since his comrades have all seen how easily he can lie through his teeth. There are a few triggers that break his collected facade, as well--things which are extremely personal to him and will set him off if used to provoke him. One being his hair, which he takes a great pride in. The others . . . well, he's less keen to share. The more you get to know him the more you'll get to know his neuroses and see him unravel.

Background:
Faris generally doesn't talk about his past much or his family, not out of secrecy or anything. Father was a deadbeat, mother was a saint. Loved them both anyway. They were older, so they could be dead now for all he knows, they don't really talk anymore. He's got an older sister but she's about ten years older so they were never too close. Blah, blah.
He was born as a "normal" in England, though his family moved to America during his grade school years--so he's got a slight accent. He was moderately popular in high school, having already developed his charming, devious ways by then (although with a great deal less confidence and control than he's got now). It was around then that he contracted chromatism but it didn't faze him much. His hair turned purple which was shocking to some, but it's not as if chromatism was a foreign concept at that point. In his region colorists were a rarer find so he was alienated by some, but his sudden novelty also made him hot-ticket in the eyes of others. But Faris decided to quit high school and move to Chromatica, finding the Colorist life more interesting and suited to his wants. His mother tried to be supportive but his father pretty much disowned him for it--not that Faris ever blamed him or held it against him. After all, he was 'diseased'.
At first Faris just fucked around and did as he pleased, working odd jobs like busing tables and washing dishes. He was a bit cockier and more wily than the Faris you see now, sometimes picking fights with gang kids his age (not to be confused with mafiosos, just stray punks or the occasional pledge) and sleeping around (generally with older women, but his tastes broadened considerably over time). When he was 17 he started sneaking into pubs to gamble and sometimes drink, but mostly make social connections. That's when he met a dealer/supplier named Hanschen who belonged to the Blue-Purple faction and he took Faris under his wing.
Faris was his lackey for awhile, doing grunt work and assisting in the lab. He had a knack for "alchemy" as Hanschen liked to call it, and a natural inclination towards the chemistry behind drug production. Hanschen's drugs were popular, some were actually perfectly legal, others . . . not so much. They were well known as "love drugs", that is anything pertaining to sex: enhancement drugs, drugs that affected performance and libido, and even more dangerous drugs that induced fantastical, vivd sexual hallucinations, etc. Hanschen always taught Faris just enough to aid in the production of his drugs while ensuring Faris himself would not be able to replicate them on his own. However over time Faris gained more and more of Hanschen's trust and was even permitted to sell on the street, receiving a generous portion of the earnings to do with however he pleased. With his charm and good looks (laughs at myself) he was able to steadily bring in a hefty profit, and Hanschen decided it was time at last to teach Faris his secrets--but not without initiating Faris into the Blue-Purple family first. 
On Faris' 18th birthday Hanschen sent him to recover some stolen drugs and "dispose of" the responsible party. But it wasn't easy--while he'd won quite a few fights in his younger days (and lost his fair share, too) Faris had never fought to the death before. He was severely injured but nevertheless successful and with this he was finally welcomed into the family. Once he recovered, Hanschen taught him everything he knew. They worked together for a long time, and the two became extremely close, Hanschen like a mentor or even something of a father-figure to Faris. Five years later, however, Hanschen was brutally murdered by some thugs on behalf of a rival dealer. Faris pretended to handle it coolly on the surface, but he took it very personal, exacting his revenge through cruel murder on anyone even remotely involved in Hanschen's murder. He inherited the business and to this day his drugs are still quite popular as well as a valued source of income to his faction. He has a few trusted employees (most of whom were working under Hanschen) who sell for him on the street while Faris himself only generally sells by special appointment. Because he's so successful he doesn't have any other job or alias by day aside from being a good for nothing idiot ruffian.

Powers: "Air" Elemental
Main power: pressure manipulation  - works in a number of ways. In terms of combat it means he can increase or decrease air pressure more or less at will, which enables him to soften the blow of other people's attacks as well as enhance the force of his own. Also by pressurizing and pushing forth the air behind certain objects he can fire them at a rapid speed, making "bullets" out of pretty much anything. The drawbacks to this power are that it's hard to aim/control and using it too much makes him dizzy in proportion to how often it's utilised. He generally sticks to physical combat when he needs to and carries a gun in his briefcase and knife in his belt at all times as well.
Sub-power: oxygenation  - that is, he can absorb oxygen from any molecule or some such pseudo-scientific bullshit that essentially results in suffocation/asphyxiation being impossible for him. It's not an especially useful talent since there's not much else he can do with it but it's convenient that he can hold his breath indefinitely. Pro-tip: If you want to off him, strangulation or drowning is not the way to go.

Other information:
-He adopted his mother's surname, his legal surname at birth is technically Ayres-Yan
-He's been growing out his hair all his life and he's embarrassingly attached to it; if he lets you touch it either he trusts you a lot, or he simply wants you to believe that he does.
-People who know a thing or two about Faris (there are quite a few, given his reputation) have speculated the nature of his relationship with Hanschen, whether or not they were sexually/romantically involved, Faris always declines to state.
-He has a nasty lil' habit of drinking/smoking/gambling/sleeping around, but it none of it's gotten him into any serious trouble at least.
-While he has no qualms doing it for the sake of his family, Faris actually doesn't particularly enjoying fighting (despite being a belligerent punk in his late teen years) and prefers to avoid it.
-Never once has he gotten "high on his own supply". In fact, aside from smoking and drinking, Faris abstains from drugs enitrely.
-His "street name" is Thistle, but at this point it's just a formality. Most people know his real name and he doesn't care whichever one people choose to call him by.
