PostSubject: Sven Wiegaard   Sun Feb 05, 2012 12:40 am

Name: Sven Wiegaard
Age: 27
Bounty: 5oo,ooo, active or inactive as his current political position dictates.

Species: Human
Occupation: Swordsman, but is a fair hand at nearly everything else, but he's nowhere near qualified to specialize in anything other than swordsmanship.
Allegiance: His allegiance really depends on his moods, for he will cut down Marine and pirate alike depending on how cruel they are. In a single word: vigilante.
Home Village/Ocean: Grand Line, the island of Parapetia.

Appearance: Sven is a fair haired man with a consistently calm air about him. His hair is short and straight, but normally askew ever so slightly so that it doesn't go into his eyes. His eyes themselves are a clear green, and he has a few freckles on his cheeks. He is normally garbed in a short sleeved black shirt and long black pants, and he normally has more casual sneakers on his feet, though the sneakers have a coating of metal on the bottom to grind shards of obsidian to dust. He will have a brown leather belt affixed about his waist, onto which the sheath for his sword is normally adhered. He also, peculiarly, wears samurai-style wrist guards on his forearms, and additionally has a pair of aviator goggles that he keeps on his forehead on the off chance he will need to fight someone.

Occasionally, though, Sven does need a more appropriate attire for more formal occasions: a blue military style suit, sans any form of headgear. He forgoes his wrist guards and his aviator goggles, and combs his hair back. Furthermore, his sneakers are switched out for more dignified leather dress shoes. He does keep the Zeroth Blade on hand, still affixed to his waist, although with a more formal silvery and gold cloth belt.

History: Sven Wiegaard was born on the Parapetia in the Grand Line, the son of a wealthy aristocratic family. His family's method of obtaining their position was no secret: the line was descended from a very skilled and prolific pirate from approximately two hundred years ago. The pirate literally paid his way into the aristocracy, and due to his wife's incredible economic intellect, they firmly entrenched themselves in the aristicratic class. Over time, the manner and behavior of the members of the line improved, making them seem, on the outside, as if they had been aristocrats since the beginning of time.

It was into this family that Sven was born, and it was because of them that he learned his incredible manners and polite behavior. He was taught many arts, such as cooking and naval navigation, as such subjects were expected to be known by the aristocracy. He was fascinated by the family sword that hung above the mantle, and through a considerable amount of effort (and admittedly childish whining), he convinced his parents to help him learn how to wield a sword. He insisted to his tutor that, although he was a member of the aristocracy, he expected no special treatment; only the basic necessities of politeness and good manners. His trainer complied, and though his manner and diction were always spotless, his training for Sven was grueling and tough. Because of this, Sven was able to become a skilled swordsman by the age of 19, though not one that would shake the earth, as it were.

Sven's skill as a swordsman grew as his gentlemanly manners did the same. Unlike many of the gentlemen in the Parapetian aristocracy, Sven did not court many of the females in the other families. His manner was courteous with them, as it was with every other person, but he made no effort to curry their favor. His parents slowly grew distraught over this, and instead attempted to arrange a marriage for him. When Sven found out, he refused to get married, no matter what his parents said. The day of their intended marriage, Sven was nowhere to be found: the 24 year old man was off on another island, practicing his swordsmanship and challenging whoever he could to gentlemanly matches of the blade. He stayed there for six months to try to wait for his parents to calm down and accept his decision.

While Sven was gone, the Marine presence on the island shifted, due to a corrupt individual coming to power. The new leader of the Marines imposed much higher taxes, the surplus of which he put into his own pocket. A group of the aristocrats, primarily led by the Wiegaard family, opposed the new taxes, but due to the heavily political atmosphere in Parapetia, the Marines had more power, and arrested and imprisoned the majority of the Wiegaard family and their supporters.

Sven returned to find his home empty: his family's coffers emptied. The only thing of value left in the house was the family blade, located in a hidden safe in the family mansion. Sven was briefed on the situation by one of his old servants, who explained to him the events of the past months. In a momentary lapse in judgement, Sven's rage got the better of him. He went to the Marine base and murdered the leader of the corrupt officials, the speed with which he did the deed preventing any Marines from stopping him. He proceeded to free his family and their supporters, and they found evidence of the Marine's corrupt behavior. Giving the evidence to his family to handle, Sven couldn't stay for much longer: despite the corrupt nature of the Marine, it still stood that he had killed a Marine, and would likely be punished for it.

Sven left Parapetia and wandered the world, seeing many instances of corruption from Marines, and cruelty from pirates. Though he knew his family descended from a pirate, he couldn't support the actions of the pirates of today, and thus pledged himself to cleansing the world of cruelty and corruption however he could, and his political situation has been fluctuating appropriately as he kills both deadly pirates and corrupt Marines.

Personality: Sven is an extremely calm and collected individual, who, while not being a true stoic, does not let his passions control his behavior. He is extremely polite to those who deserve it, primarily those Marines that are honorable, and those pirates who have not really deserved their bounties. He likes to resolve problems peacefully before bringing it to blows. Sven will only be brought to blows if pushed, physically threatened, or if he finds himself in the presence of unsupported arrogance. Sven also has a very strong belief in just punishment, and he doesn't think that only one organization, like the Marines, deserves the sole right to dole out punishment. He views corruption and unprovoked murder as the two crimes of the greatest caliber. Those two crimes are the only crimes he views as deserving of a death sentence, which he feels obligated to carry out due to his rather aristocratic upbringing.

Ship: N/A

Ship Flag: N/A

Devil Fruit: N/A

Special Abilities:

Crystal Walk: The Crystal Walk is a single sword style used by Sven due to its elegance and its focus on parrying, sweeping motions, and its focus on a 'last kill', a last strike specifically meant to finish off a wounded opponent. The Crystal Walk and all related techniques are only taught on the island of Parapetia, and used only by the aristocracy, particularly by Sven's family. The Crystal Walk was originally developed by one of Sven's ancestors; the very ancestor, in fact, who obtained the Zeroth Blade.

Unbalancing Steps: The Unbalancing Steps martial artist style is a style that mixes the redirectional principles of aikido with a focus on the use of the legs. This style is primarily used by swordsmen and fighters who use mostly their arms for combat. The Unbalancing Steps style will use the legs to trip up opponents, and use the momentum of the opponent to upset the opponent's balance.

Masterful Swordsmanship: Sven is an extremely skilled swordsman, generally avoiding the use of abnormal powers to take the win. His skill in an up-close swordsplay battle is incredible, and he can be generally considered to be one of the most fluid swordsmen out there in terms of his movements and his reactions. His skills using a one handed sword are superb, but he is unable to weild a two handed sword or more than one one handed sword at a time. His skills with a sword enable him to perform feats with a sword that could be performed by stronger men with less skill, but they do not allow him to perform abnormal feats without a sword.

Cat-like Reflexes: While Sven is not necessarily quick on his feet, he is extremely good at reacting to danger and countering attacks. His reflexes are extremely good, enabling him to parry a bullet with a swing of his sword. However, his reflexes will dullen over time if he has to fight against someone for an extended period of time, just like any human.

Learned Techniques (Keep it 1-25):

Crystal Walk:
 
Unbalancing Steps:
 
Weapons/Items: Zeroth Blade

Goals: Cleanse the government of corruption.
