Associated Items:
Miniature Solutions [Locked]: These are soluble plastic-coated pellets that chemically 'tinge' water. Each type has a different solution with varying strengths, from weak (hey, don't have any windex? pop this in some water and bam you can clean windows like a pro) to strong (hey, don't wanna schlep around a bunch of lye everywhere? pop this in some water and bam you can dissolve a body with a highly reduced prep time!). His most used pellets include Lye (NaOH), Methylene Chloride, Sodium Hypochlorate (Bleach), trisodium phosphate. 

Childhood blanket: This is a childish thing for him to need but it comforts him when he's alone. Don't judge


Quiet | Observant | Unassuming | Bright | Dedicated | Credulous | Withdrawn | Conciliatory | Focused | Empathetic

Seraph's personality has always been a double-edged sword, allowing him to show a kindness not always deserved, but also allowing others to manipulate him with ease, even when he already knows he's being manipulated. He overly apologizes, not just for his own pitfalls, but for the pitfalls of others. He's quiet, making him an easy target. He's observant, but overly forgiving towards the 'mistakes' of his comrades. His overdeveloped empathy (though dulled towards humans) overwhelms him, especially in the brigade. There's so much pain.
His history greatly informs his personality, he takes abuse laying down, and afterward can continue on with his day. Sometimes this behavior is a great asset. He can take any number of hits, and still walk out of the fight, tight lipped and resilient. He knows better than to fight back, his body isn't suited for physical altercations, he only knows when to walk (or sometimes, run) away. 
Beneath his obvious shyness hides an occasionally sharp wit, which only rears its head around those Seraph knows the best. He has a sense of humor which he exhibits under his breath, humor that's easily overshadowed in a large crowd, but still coaxes a small, self-indulgent laugh from this quiet rabbit. 


Seraph's life, until the events leading up to his joining BJBB, was relatively normal. Just a rabbit living the average rabbit life in Pearson City, which, though average, was drastically different than the young human's experience. His father, a human immigrant from Korea, and his mother, a third-generation Korean rabbit with a strong cultural identity, were both impoverished, infrequently employed youths, but very kind people. After all, with an immigrant and a rabbit, there's very little room for class mobility. In the end however, Seraph's father (a college educated scientist) began working in a factory, and his mother found employment in rich family homes as a housekeeper and cook.
Seraph, as a child, was very somber and quiet, not easily involved in general activities. He was bullied extensively as a bookish rabbit in a highly mixed public school, as a foreigner from a foreign family, even for his feminine appearance and long hair. The torment was ceaseless through all his school years, causing a great deal of depression.
High school was also difficult. His bullies continued to cause him grief, but at least he started to find his niche interests (those being chemistry and drama). After having, since childhood, a large appetite for consuming films and broadway recordings, Seraph auditioned for the school's production of The Crucible, second semester of his freshman year. He found he loved acting and working crew, this occupation of his time helped stave away his looming depressive moods. He was often however the only person on the clean-up crew.
Meanwhile during school hours, Seraph found his favorite subject to be Chemistry. His grasp of the subject was beyond the rest of his peers and sometimes even beyond what the underpaid public teacher would want to cover. He'd read and read and his teacher would even (begrudgingly) allow him access before school to the lab and would oversee his experiments.
When sophomore year rolled around, Seraph had started to make a few friends, mostly through the drama department. Drama was dominated by humans, but they claimed to be "open-minded" about rabbits, and Seraph's talent was not undervalued there like it might have been elsewhere. Through honing his craft, he quickly became a strong contender for very important roles, despite hardly being considered for the lead. For the first time in his life, Seraph became driven to succeed, if only just in this one area. Chemistry was not a competitive love of his, but acting, it became competitive. 
Life was bearable. Good, even. Seraph had friends, if only a few. He strove to improve his acting skills and was involved in every play the department put on. In his junior year, he "uh... sort of fell" into a relationship with a popular human boy, a laid back basketball player, well liked by most of the school populace. Their relationship was a complete secret, at Seraph's request. Their meetings together were sparse in the beginning and over the summer they hardly saw each other at all. After all, his family was well-to-do and human, while Seraph's was dirt poor and bunny-eared. Senior year was the best year of Seraph's life. The rocky introduction to his first real relationship had passed, and while he and his beau still saw each other only in secret, they were in each other's arms at every opportunity. When not fraternizing with his boyfriend, he was completely focused on theater, having landed the lead in Death of a Salesman for the first semester play. During the second semester, reeling from the success of Death of a Salesman, Seraph was selected to lead in Shakespeare's Hamlet. Shortly afterwards, things started rolling in the downhill direction.
With the uproar about BJBB's activity becoming a more public matter, some insidious human bullies warmed to the idea of an excellent prank, one that would not just end in Seraph's tears, but land him in a much more sinister predicament. Completely confident in their entitlement as human citizens, they called P.O.S.R.A. to warn them of a potential terrorist threat at their school, an unassuming rabbit named Seraph Kasem. That very day, two officers came to arrest this "terrible threat" as part of their investigation uncovering BJBB activities. While his human friends and his boyfriend stood to the side silently, shamefully, he was taken into custody. 
It was there that he met some already interned BJBB members, affiliates of the very group Seraph had been accused of being a part of. When the might of the Brigade fell upon the pen to free these members, Seraph was also collected as a refugee, and taken back to headquarters, blindfolded. It became clear that going back home was not an option, as P.O.S.R.A. would become a threat to his family should he return. Out of fear for his family, he joined the brigade as an official member, hoping to be useful in any way.
When he suggested that he could clean.... he meant clean house, but instead he fell into the profession of destroying evidence. Hopefully his chemistry skills will aid in his endeavors.


Music (Piano music and hip hop)

Hurting others
Getting stuck in a role

:bulletblack: Seraph's skill in acting introduces him to the sub-profession of Spy. He easily wears personas (quite contrary to his own personality) in the field and it comes in handy when dealing with the straggling human. He sometimes has trouble snapping out of a role, the longer he plays it. He always takes time to recover from such occasions, usually locking himself away for a little while. 

:bulletblack: He often makes paper flowers in his dorm, sometimes compulsively. They remind him of his mom and they don't need the sun. Someday he may want real flowers in his dorm, but it requires energy to go get a solar lamp for them.


:bulletblack:Parents: Closer to his mom than his dad, Seraph learned how to cook and clean from her. While his cooking skills remain only at the adequate stage, he's quite good at keeping tidy. After school he would usually come home to an empty house, as his parents' work hours increased, and he would clean for his mom, to take the stress off. He did cook sometimes but she was much more masterful. They shared a love of film and would watch tv together while his dad would do crosswords or read. His dad worked even more than his mother did, so naturally they weren't as close, but his father once studied science at uni in his home country, and maintained an interest in it. They shared that bond together, reading the same books and journals.

:bulletblack:Thomas Wells: Seraph's human boyfriend, a closeted basketball star at their high school. I think it can be assumed that they broke up, in light of Seraph's arrest and on-the-lamb status. They were together for nearly a year, always meeting in secret. He and Seraph may have both troubled over the l-word but they expressed their fondness of each other readily. Thomas' silence in the wake of Seraph's arrest was perhaps one of the most painful things Seraph had undergone, as he was completely unprepared for the whole situation.

Xyruz [SS]

Xyruz belongs to Zungie! Finished this ages ago but I wasn't sure the proper time to submit. I had a lot of fun drawing him even though this is pretty darn basic looking!! I'd love to learn more about him. While I was still doodling deliberating I found THIS SWEATER and I needed to draw it. I'm so sorry Xyruz. You fell victim to my ugly sweater antics. Happy holidays!

OvO let's roleplay sometime so that I can learn to draw him better


Before-Knights's Profile Picture

My names are Gabriel and Skarrow and I'm okay with you calling me Knights. I like to storify but I'm super bad at RP and it makes me nervous. My most prized characters are as follows: Aisling, Hermes, Iren, Maurus and Raoul. My pronouns are they/them/their, it/it/its , or he/him/his. My gender is pancakes. If you'd like to storify with me and build character stuff then you can message me via skype (Quandariously). Carry on.
