Physical Appearance:
Once one looks past the eccentric behavior, Vincent could be considered quite the handsome fellow in that charming nerdy kind of way. Genetics are on his side though with his modest 5ft11 and naturally toned physical build, but one could hardly consider Vincent the athletic type. Tall but lean all can tell the strongest muscle in his body would be that gray mass inside that head of his hidden beneath that wild dark chocolate hair. Matching dark brown eyes complete the curious picture that is iconic to Vincent Montblanc. Over the past years he’s been experimenting with various types for his facial hair, having gone from clean shaved to goatees ad mustaches, never staying true to one style for much longer than a couple of weeks. Fashion wise he’s all over the place, most of the days simply putting on what’s closest within reach making for several comical outfits in the past. Vincent is as white-collar as it gets though being one of those stereotypical professors who’re praised in their youth, spiral down during midlife crisis and become nostalgic as their career approaches its premature ending. In class however the nerdy appearance is replaced with an impressive charisma that stems from pure intellect and understanding. He’ll smile casually when the need for some enthusiasm is required, frown when his class gets interrupted and on those rare occasions when Vincent gets angry, all the color will drain from his facial expression as those eyes lock in an icy stare…

Powers:
Psychometry
Vincent can obtain historical memories or sensations concerning beings and objects observed with his ‘educated’ senses. With objects he gain the knowledge including the makers, users, and even those who have on passing used the object, and what has been done with it. With living beings or parts of the body he learns their general life-history such as medical details and their current emotional state without gaining access to the higher cognitive functions such as memory or motor skills. Basically Vincent ‘learns’ all he needs to know by establishing a physical link with an object or person simply due to an augmented understanding of how things work and interact. Knowledge is the key to this ability…

Gravity Nullification
Through his superior understanding of physics and the magical potency that comes with being a Faun, Vincent is blessed with the exceptional talent of Gravity Nullification. At the snap of a finger, everything within a ten meter radius suddenly experiences zero gravity making objects levitate up to three meters from the ground. Objects, people even bullets all of a sudden will be subject to the curious void in the earth’s gravitational field. The lack of gravity isn’t dangerous, just a defense mechanism used by an ancient race that used to trick and toy with lost travelers crossing through their territories…

Kinetikinesis
Another talent developed through superior intellect and understanding is Kinetikinesis, a curious adaptation from the nature energy manipulation found amongst the fauns. Kinetikinesis allows Vincent to transfer the kinetic energy from one object to the next; he could drain the velocity out of a speeding bullet bringing it to a dead stop in midair by letting a penny spin rapidly on a tabletop. He could stop a car with the touch of his hand by absorbing the vehicle’s energy and transferring it to his own body. Curiously enough he can only establish a single link making the exchange of energy limited to one object at a time. In other words he could stop one bullet at a time, or slow several down in sequence but never fully bring an entire clip fired at him to a halt…

Presence Negation
Vincent is a master at hiding, using an extraordinary combination of hypnosis, environmental influence and physics’ manipulation to erase his presence from the face of the earth. He can hide his ‘fingerprint’ on the world, completely cleansing himself of the evidence his existence leaves in this life. Aura, electromagnetism and even biological markers that could give away his location are ‘blocked’ from outsiders making Vincent impossible to be found by magical or technological means known today. Unfortunately that also means nobody can take a picture from him without finding a black spot on the photograph even if it’s for innocent purposes. The only way to find Vincent is by establishing a visible line of sight with him for his physical presence cannot be erased from cognitive perception without manipulating one’s mind, something Vincent vowed he’d never do…

Cerebral Control (Key to the Human Mind)
After years of extensive studies into the human psyche, Vincent discovered the key to the human mind, a universal trigger that allows unrestricted access into all the functions of brain. The ‘Key’ allows him to manipulate, modify and control the thoughts, mindsets, and upper brain functions, allowing render others unconscious, suppress their memories, and negate the use of abilities, increase/decrease mental capacity, modify minds to be agreeable, sway sensations to induce altered perception, bestow mental disorders or break down mental barriers. The discovery frightened Vincent, terrified him to a point that he fled from the face of the world and hid in the last place anyone would come look for him: Hollows. Only once has he used the ‘Key’ and it haunts him still for with great power comes great responsibility. If others would ever discover this knowledge, the safety of humanity would be at stake and Vincent could not allow that. (works on humans only, never to be used!)

Faun Physiology
It’s been nearly sixty years since Vincent last embraced its true nature but beneath the bewildered appearance of the Hollows University professor goes an ancient creature from the old forests. Fauns or Satyrs they’re often called but the two are completely different things; Vincent however is a faun, a woodland creature that guards a small slice of nature’s paradise with tricks and deception. Half man, half goat the Fauns are curious solitary beings that part from their family to defend their own plot of land elsewhere in the world. In his true form Vincent becomes part of the forest, being naturally camouflaged in wooded areas and capable of living for centuries on just the energy of the sun…

Alternative Form:
In his true form it’s obvious why his human disguise features such a tall and slender posture as the Faun is a stick-like figure composed of caprid and humanoid traits marked by an earthly color palette. Curious markings are found all across its body where the skin resembles tree bark while curling horns give it a frightening appearance. Moss and ivy wriggle around its limbs adding a strange shade of green to the creature’s dark brown mane. Most noteworthy are those goat-like legs that adds a powerful spring to its step making it able to leap across tall fences or clear large distances in a short period of time. Some say there’s no creature capable of navigating the woods as quickly and agilely as a faun and that is not even exaggerated…

Birth Marks:
None worth mentioning

Scars/Marks:
The curl pattern on his forehead appears whenever he frowns
Similar curling patterns can be felt just beneath the skin

Tattoo's/Piercings:
Small tattoo on his stomach of a sun crest

Scent:
Agua Fresca by Adolfo Dominguez

Voice:


Fashion & Makeup:
Like most men Vincent prefers the natural look, making him share his gender’s hatred for makeup. Fashion wise they could describe his style as ‘Professional Smart’, that’s if he’d ever bother dressing properly in the morning. Most days he’ll rise half an hour late, making him throw on some cloths in a hurry, which in turn results in an eclectic look. When given enough time though, he’ll suit up rather nicely in the latest modern trends. Combining classy blazers with simple t-shirts and sneakers, suit vests and shirts with casual dark jeans are favorites of the young psychology professor at Hollows University.

Sociability & Emotionality:
Sociability
Vincent is a superb teacher, enthusiastic and energetic in front of the classroom where he introduces a new generation of eager students to the curious world of the human psyche. He inspires and excites people, intrigues them with the many aspects of his field, being by many of his peers viewed as a one of the most exceptional minds of the current age. Outside the classroom, especially off campus one sees a different face of Vincent Montblanc, a slightly paranoid and confused version of the compelling psychology professor. There are some things in his past that have him spooked, events that now have him glance across his shoulder from time to time, check a room before sitting down and even look under his bike before even getting on the saddle. He’ll be suspicious of people, answering questions with questions or devising a verbal counter than even the cleverest of minds will struggle with to understand. He’s creature with a routine however, doing everything according to a fixed schedule, frequenting always the same shops and places at the same time for the same things…

Emotionality
Emotionally one could say Vincent Montblanc is too smart for his own good and through his extensive understanding of the human psyche he discovered something that terrifies him more than anything in the world. Paranoia and suspicion get the better of him most of the time, making him see things that aren’t there and expect things to happen that only take place in movies and books. Some say the most brilliant heads in the world are a prisoner of their own minds and they weren’t kidding for Vincent is haunted by his greatest discovery. To counter his paranoia, Vincent integrated structure in his life, making him compelled to things in a particular order and a particular way. His life is dominated by the self-imposed schedule of his mind, dictating what he does and when he does it, who he meets and how he interacts with them. Only the safety of the lecture halls allows him to be free from the chains of his own mind. Only when teaching does Vincent’s compulsive behavior fade to the background, making room for the inspirational and enthusiastic way he talks about the many wondrous aspects of the mind and the possibilities of human intellect…

Strengths & Weaknesses:
Strengths
Like most fauns, the pursuit of intellect is the most important purpose in Vincent’s life and with such high intellectual ambitions comes an impressive intellect that few can rival. Play a game of chess with Vincent and find your every move anticipated and countered before you even determined what you were doing in the first place. Simply observing people, he can tell what’s on their minds at that time, where they came from and where they’re going determining the remaining opportunities ahead of them in the future. He can tell which students in his lectures will pass his course, which won’t but most impressively is his talent to predict the exact outcome of their entire education and the career that follows afterwards for few understand the human mind as Vincent does…

As a professor however, Vincent is a revelation in the class room, an inspiration for a new generation taking their seat every year in that lecture hall. Patient but excited, fascinating but professional, many students sign up for his classes for the sheet energy he presents in those auditoria. His strength lies in education and inspiration, bringing knowledge to young minds and showing them the potential of their studies through careful instructions and clever studies customized to their individual needs. He’s more than a professor for those genuinely interested in psychology, he’s a mentor who goes at great lengths to get their papers approved and published, their research grants approved allowing his true students to make it in this business of the human mind…

Weaknesses
Knowledge however is Vincent’s greatest weakness for the things he got locked up in that mind of his, pose a grave threat not only to himself but to the entire human population. Having discovered the Key to the Human Mind, the greatest accomplishment of his life and career as a psychiatrist, was the worst thing that happened for he’s been looking over his shoulder ever since. That discovery is the source of his paranoia, the reason why he sleeps with one eye open, checks a room before getting comfortable and why he fled to the last place anyone would be looking for him. Vincent is suspicious of everyone he meets and with his background, a mere observation of those peoples alarms him to every potential pitfall and element in a person’s psyche. He’ll see enemies in everyone, because he knows and could with the right strings being pulled make even the most loyal of friends potential traitors...

Arrogance and ignorance are two minor weaknesses of Vincent that may prove to be a nuisance for the man in the upcoming days. Arrogance is paired with his superior intellect, making him confident that few minds are as capable as his own in affairs of knowledge. There’s a thin line between confidence and arrogance and Vincent is ever balanced upon that line, every so often stumbling on the wrong side of that thin edge. Ignorance stems from the social isolation his mind forced him into, for in the past couple of years he spend detached from civilization. This makes that he’s no longer up to date in fields such as social protocols and current trends. Most will perceive this as Vincent simply being ‘quirky’ and ‘eccentric’, just another professor having cracked under the pressure of competitive academics…

Attitude:
Vincent’s attitude towards life is one of reservations and suspicions, a skeptical outlook directed towards society and all who’re part of the current corrupt system. Once he believed in the innocence of people but after his discovery, that notion faltered and gave way to a rooted believe that with the right strings being pulled, all could fall to the temptation of darkness. His mind and most importantly the capabilities of that mind are his worst enemy for with understanding comes a fear that dominates every aspect of life. The only hope he has for life lies in the future and with it, the new generation about to take control. In the classroom he finds the opportunity to direct folks away from the current path the world and all its civilizations are heading towards and instruct people to opt for their own, more righteous paths. As a professor he inspires students to dedicate their life to choosing rationally at every crossroads they meet along their journey, to follow the academic course that will lead them towards a more structured society where knowledge is the key to their freedom…

Song and or Playlist:


Weapons:
Owns a double edged ceremonial knife similar to the Italian Renaissance Cinquedea

Background:
April 9th 1946

To my darling sister Chantal,

I beg your forgiveness and pray you’ll respect this important decision I had make yet the unfortunate series of events in the past years left me without a choice. What was supposed to be my greatest accomplishment, my pièce de résistance as the French so eloquently say became my worst nightmare, the thorn in my side that binds my hands in this decision. I’ve spend the better part of my life pursuing knowledge, dedicating my years to understanding the dominant race on this planet of ours. You were there when I stood in the shadows of the ancient oak back home in Serra del Montsec when travelers followed the old forest path. Often I’d spy on them, listening and watching as they went about their business. I’ve seen them at their best, young couples find ‘love’ by the shallows of the lake and at their worst when they brought the flames of war to our home. And with each year I grew more intrigued, obsessed even with the many quirks and traits that made mankind unique. When sadness and sorrow lefts its mark in their hearts, the reaction always differed for some wept and others fought, some screamed and others mourned yet none of that curious race ever acted the same way. And so my interest grew, my fascination as you’d say became the sole purpose of my existence and the very reason why I left the safety of our borders…

Our parents never understood yet you always knew my place was beyond the emerald limits of our woodland paradise. You supported me in the decision to leave our home, helped me on my way by reaching out into the core of the earth and finding likeminded souls who shared my fascination with the mortals who grew bolder with each passing generation. When the world endured yet another war, mankind’s egos clashing with blood and violence, you devised the plan that got me out, made the introductions to the girl who’d set me free from the ancestral bindings that kept our kin within those forests. Sacrifices were made and while her death never left my conscious, I’ll be eternally grateful for your role in that tragedy, dear sister. My road took me north to our distant cousins who called Forêt des Landes their home. I never fitted in though, Spriggans are the most curious of creatures I’ve came across and yet they took me as one of their own. Our ways towards men differed though as I continued my study whilst they teased and taunted those unfortunate to stray from the path. The villages were closer though and the water was strong enough to keep the illusion intact for days so I dared to go where none of our kin ever went before. Amongst mankind. I spend countless days visiting the farmers leaving near the forest’s edge, helped them care for the land while getting introduced to their ways. I learnt their tongue – strangest thing you’ve ever heard – and found out each region has their own variety of their speech. Languages they’re called and even in a language there are many different accents that make the ‘tongue’ differ even more…

Once I learnt their language my studies progressed rapidly, making me quickly understand every sentiment they experienced. Emotions they’re called and while all humans have them, all of them express them differently. The act we saw in the forest, the boy and girl in the water is called love, the most powerful and sincere of emotions. When a ‘loved’ one dies, they weep, mourn and pray, and while there is no practical use for those expressions of emotions, their existence is what makes their kind so unique. I even believe it’s part of the reason why they’ve grown so strong over the past years. Anger is a curious thing, like a sickness it grabs hold of them and lingers. Sometimes it just sticks with them until death sets them free but other times anger infects others and erupts into the cause of the fires that set our home ablaze. War. They fight eachother, expanding their domain with blood and devices they call guns and bombs. Some of them can fly in birds of metal, others can dive into water and stay under for days in whales of steel. It’s quite fascinating to see what actions are guided by that single emotion but most curious of all are all the other emotions it brings forth. Jealousy, greed, fear and lust suddenly grows stronger in them and for the past five years I watched them tear eachother apart. Now there is something called peace, not quite sure what that is but it seems to temper the ‘bad’ emotions and make way for more positive thoughts. It’s in this peace that I discovered the secret that makes them unique. Understanding the secret allowed me to reach deeper into their psych and within their minds I found it: the Key…

I felt the sentiment of Pride for the first time in my existence for the discovery allowed me to guide mankind towards safer paths. The Key showed them the way when they themselves were too blind to see the road so obviously before him. Carefully not to get discovered I educated them, starting with the younglings first and hoping they’d bring their knowledge to the older generations. I failed though, every attempt I made to use the Key having proven a failure as only the innocence of youth is open to the influence on the outside. The Key itself is a violation of that freedom, an abomination that should never have existed in the first place for using it irreparably damages the psyche it enters. The Key takes away their free will, making sheep out of wolves who only move when instructed to. So I buried the secret within my own mind, destroyed all evidence it ever existed and yet it haunts me still. Everyone I come across along my journeys looks at me with eyes hungry for the knowledge I hold. Their intellectuals are growing smarter, starting to understand those things we thought they’d never grasp and I fear that they’ll one day see through my disguise and discover the truth of what I’ve been keeping hidden from them for the past years. It’s only a matter of time before they became aware of the Key’s existence, before they’ll use the Key as a weapon for their own merit and with what I’ve seen in their eyes I hold no faith in the goodness of their heart. So that’s why I write this letter to you dear sister, my final letter…

I have made my decision and found the destination where the waters are so rich with magic, the illusion will remain eternal. Where I’m going, I cannot tell for the secret of the Key must remain. Knowing its existence is all I can entrust you now, dear sister for until the road to mankind’s salvation is set and followed. For now I’ll keep the Key locked in the sole place I can rely on, the one place where none will look for it and where not will find it until they’re found worthy of such responsibility. To you, my sweet Chantal I entrust only this knowledge: Man's reach does not exceed his grasp, but man's grasp exceeds his nerve. Beware of the promises of humans for unless they find merit in such an oath, there is little meaning to their words. Keep them out of the forests and keep the paths of our kin shrouded until I’ve send one your way. You’ll know her for the name will forever be engraved in our hearts for whomever I found worthy will come pray where Ofelia fulfilled her oath. Until then this will be my final letter and where I’m heading next no dove will be able to carry word…

Sincerely,

Your dear brother, Vincent
