:bulletyellow: Dembe's Winter Bash Audition :bulletyellow:

Decided to join this tournament when we have 22 hours left. So I crammed everything in 22 hours. :/
Deadline is hawt stuff. <3

Job - Bodyguard
He's been working in a Yojimbo Agency with Pandora and Kamui.

He's suppose to be Qian's long term bodyguard- After some time he joined SDL and Gokiburi-Gumi (gangster) with Qian, Dembe has been stop receiving payment from her. They are more like living partner than mistress and bodyguard. : D

Gentleman, kind and helpful, polite, cheerful, cute-- that's what people normally see from him.

Dembe is ACTUALLY a very manipulative person, maybe also an excellent actor. (Strategist, sneaky and smart person!) His kind and sweet appearance helps him to get along with almost everyone around him. (good reputation helps him to mix around and gather informations for his team! YEAAH so he's kinda kinda popular around SDL gang.)

He can be very mean to close friends though-- blackmails, awkward jokes, disgust them on purpose-- he's very naughty and playful sometimes. (this doesn't apply on Yan Qian though! Everyone knows he treat her like some kind of precious treasure. <:3 )

You can't say Dembe is a big faker, the sweet side of him is not a lie (entirely). Complex personalities?

A twisted character, you can say. : l

Fighting Style
Martial Art! Fist! His attack are not as sneaky as his person. In fact, his attacks is very impactful-- and straight forward.

Don't underestimate his freestyle martial art! Is a mixed style of many masters! >: D

Oh yeah, and he hits VERY hard. (CONFIDENT! CRUEL! No hold back!) He don't fight like a kid- sympathy, doubts? No way! He'll just kill you if he have too huhuhuhu.

Dembe's History
He lost his family when he's really young. (that's what he said, no one really know where's his from. Or his surname.) He's been following different masters to learn martial art and fighting skill. (Pandora's father, for example!)

You can say he and Qian used to live through hard time when they are small kids, and decided to use their fighting skill to earn some living. As simpleeee as that!

Joining Winter Bash : Purpose
MONEY. Plus his team need people to kick some tournament! SINCE he stop receiving payment from Qian, so he works for GG apparently. Gather informations, beating people up when the boss said so-- Joining tournament is also some sidekick job to bring up GG's name too, so yea. Some kind of "WOOSH representing the gang!"

That character sounds very interesting, and you drew him well^^. The way you described him, he slightly reminds me of Karl. This is for a tournament of some sort, you say? Good luck! :w00t:
