Isaac Stark "All I have to do is win, and everyone will be safe."
"Mom, Dad...Simon. Are you watching? I told you...you don't have to worry about me anymore.
Because I'm strong. I can protect everyone now."
Birth Name: Isaac Stark Aliases: ??? Gender: Male Age: 17 Birth Day: January 11th Arcana: The Strength Place of Residence: Evoker: Mental Shackles Academy Semester: Second Year Class: (We'll fill this in once you're approved. This will be your class in school)
Part/Full Time Job:
Appearance: Standing at around 5'11, Isaac is a young man of about average height and an above average build, as he trains and exercises frequently. He has a youthful face, light reddish eyes, and medium-short silver hair that is hard to keep straight and tidy.
Isaac's casual clothing tends to include a healthy mix of lighter and darker clothes, contrasting well with his lighter hair, eyes, and skin tone. Blacks, whites, reds, purples, and navy blues are common.
Alternate Appearance: His alternate appearance appears almost as a vision of Isaac if he were an adult. His face is more mature, albeit obscured by his helmet, and his physique far more impressive. His skin tone darkens as well, and his hair grows longer. Though he appears to be an older, stronger Isaac, there is also a mythical quality to him. As if he were some hero from an era which has long since passed...
Personality: Isaac tends to be a cheerful, optimistic fellow who loves interacting with people. His helpful, almost vigilante nature helps him meet plenty of new people all the time, which Isaac loves. That heroic-esq nature of his comes hand-in-hand with his difficulty to turn someone down. If somebody is in need or in trouble Isaac will rush to their aid whether he knows them or not. To others he can almost appear fearless, and he faces adversity in all it's forms with a quiet confidence. Isaac is especially protective of his loved ones to the point of almost complete selflessness.
Deep down, Isaac does have a few issues with how he's chosen to live his life. His black and white morals can and have caused a rift with his desire to protect others, and the value he places in loved ones. If someone he really cares about has genuinely done something wrong and finds themselves in trouble for it, Isaac struggles with choosing to either help them and become a hypocrite to his own beliefs, or let them take their punishment with a pained heart. It causes him to loathe himself and times and stress out. He often struggles to share these inner burdens with anyone else and keeps it all locked in.
Isaac also believes that, to an extent, his life on it's own has less merit than another's. Survivor's guilt from his childhood plagues him and, as a result, he bases a great deal of his self-worth on his ability to protect and aid another. This willingness to help someone he doesn't even know, even if it puts himself at grave danger, is a testament to this fact even if he doesn't fully recognize it himself. He struggles with finding things that make him truly happy and has a strong desire to do that, but his constant work at helping out others and standing up for what he believes in takes precedent over his own actual happiness.

Before the Eternal Divide, Isaac was...much the same, at least outwardly. He was an out-going, kind child, raised by a single foster father alongside his foster brother. Theirs was a happy but modest life, and both Isaac and his older brother Cyrus looked up highly to their foster father. He was a kind man who didn't mind giving to those who were in greater need than he, but he always made sure his sons were well taken care of.
When the Divide began to occur, panic arose all around the city Isaac resided in. As houses collapsed and strange entities began to rise up, Isaac and his foster family attempted to flee. Seeing all of this destruction, pain, and death around him troubled Isaac deeply, and when he saw a young child standing beneath a large, falling wall from a tall building, immediately he rushed to their side.
The child had fallen over and was struggling to get up, so Isaac, attemped to lift them up and carry them off. But the rubble from the building was just above them now...
Before it came down on Isaac and the young child, he felt something shove his back. As Isaac was pushed forward he tried to look back. Seconds before the heavy cement and metal from the collapsing building fell, he saw the face of his foster father. Seeing that Isaac was safe, he smiled, before the rubble came down on top of him.
Though Isaac frantically tried to free his father, along with Cyrus, the brothers eventually realized there was no way they could do it. As the destruction grew worse, the two were forced to leave the body of their father behind, with heavy hearts.
The guilt of this event weighs on Isaac to this day, as he lives alongside his brother in Endymion. The guilt is even stronger due to Cyrus pulling most of the weight, given that he's Isaac's elder by three years. He toils away working multiple jobs so that Isaac can attend school.

—Strength Name: Noble Heart —Description: A man who lives up to his ideals, seeing himself a hero or a knight of the people. His warm-hearted personality and chivalrous nature can appear charismatic.
Is this meant to be a boost to Expression in some way to seem more charismatic? Usually strengths like this in the plot can translate to social quality strengths if you so choose. If you choose to take it that way you will need a social quality weakness to back it up.
