[ way with words ] - arlie is a self-proclaimed master poet; able to weave words in unusual ways to entrance an audience... or simply express their current angst. they're actually pretty good and will wax poetic about just about anything, often spending much of their free time spinning up new verses. their body is often covered in ideas, scribbled in pen.

[ historia ] - a buff for history and seemingly useless facts, when arlie isn't writing poetry they're perusing available resources for new information. the most interesting subjects to them are history, both world and american, and more prevalently the supernatural and folklore. they are very superstitious, and tend to see history from an fantastical, idealistic view.


[ lackadasical ] - coming with their affinity for poetry and imagination is the fact that arlie is very easily distracted. their head seems to be in the clouds much of the time, and if one manages to get them to pay attention, their only typical contributions are some flowery verse spouted off that vaguely relates, too cryptic and irritating to untangle in high-tension scenarios.

[ dealt a bad hand ] - arlie's left arm is amputated below the elbow and has been since they were very young; it developed incorrectly and was removed to prevent issues as they grew. as they've lived without it for so long, they know how to operate with only one arm, however... it does pose problems throughout their life, obviously. operating machinery or certain weapons is difficult, for example.


arlie did not arrive with a weapon, but is now in possession of a [ long spear ] with a sturdy wooden handle and a metal tip. it is barbed at the tip and easy for them to operate with one arm. they favor it for the symbolism of spears in mythology.


[ poetic | philosophical | old-fashioned | occasionally cryptic | distant | pessimistic | not dedicated | judgmental ]

arlie describes themself as a poet, and indeed, they are one. they think of most everything in terms of symbolism, providing thoughtful (if not sometimes annoyingly crpyic ) insight on situations they're thrown into. a tree becomes a sign of growth, a broken plate represents the futility of life. their interpretations can get dark, as indeed they are quite pessimistic, to an irritating degree when the situation gets especially stressful. in dire straits, they're more likely to start lecturing about the folly of mankind and ask 'why expound effort when not needed?'

however, in more calm situations, they're perfectly content to go on about the future, hope, creativity, flowers... whatever strikes their fancy. they remain philosophical in these times as well, although obviously not as darkly! they'll open conversations with a question, like one from a conversation starter book- 'if you had to choose to turn a train on a group of unfamiliar people or one person you loved, which would you pick?' that sort of thing. arlie seems genuinely interested in the answers to these questions... but not much else. do they take anything realistically? it's hard to tell, but their disconnection from reality seems to... well, disconnect them from others on occasion. despite this, their odd attitude does seem to draw people in, as does their skill with words. they'll tell tales of grandeur from their life... even if those things never actually happened.

they speak in a strangely old-fashioned way, taking ages to get to the point. if something bores them, they'll drop it and move on to something else, leaving them with pages and pages of unfinished poetry and projects. however, this doesn't mean they're useless-- as stated in strengths, they're very knowledgeable about most everything from the american revolution to chinese folktales. finally, they look down on people with no creativity, viewing it as the driving force in the world. those without it are useless to society.


arlie's life is not as exciting as they'll make it out to be. in fact, their constant fabrication of their experiences is due to their incredibly boring childhood. the middle child of three, they were largely set aside in favor of their younger and older siblings, only focused on when it came to their disability and the help that everyone thought they needed. they became quite bitter due to this, not wanting to be babied but wanting to be paid attention to at the same time. ideally, people would listen to them and think they were deep and thought-provoking... and so arlie set out to fill their brain with facts that they could spout out to impress people.

they turned to poetry as an outlet to rid themselves of their Teen Angst, drawing inspiration from their own experiences and... well, basically anything. their odd demeanor distanced them from people at school, which was not their goal, but unsure how to get closer to others they simply made do with the few classmates that could stand their constant philosophizing. they appreciate the idea of unread poetry, the dark, brooding artist isolated from society, and so adopted this viewpoint and became... edgy.

however, they weren't that good at being edgy. their attempts ended up with them drawing from literature to create a persona, one they could be happy with. their jealousy and need for attention was dropped in favor of this persona-- the otherworldly litterateur, born to the wrong time period, the mysterious and thoughtful poet. with this in mind, they found themself quite happy with their current situation and contented themself with isolation from their peers. 

at age eighteen, they had been accepted into college to dual-major in literature and history. however, this is also the time that their life (got flipped) turned upside-down, with a trip into the woods. compared to others, it may seem a pretty dull reason-- seeking inspiration for their writing, they wandered deeper and deeper into unfamiliar territory... until they tripped, fell (how symbolic!) and tumbled into town, entirely unsure and yet quite interested in this new development their life had taken! after all, surely it must mean something important... if not ominous.

  • arlie is japanese on their mother's side and irish on their father's
  • they get cold easily, and tend to layer clothing heavily. however, this doesn't mean they're good at matching prints... i mean, look at them.
  • they have several tattoos: one is a quote (the one at the top of the app, from victor hugo) on their shoulder-blade, coupled with scattered feathers down their right arm, and finally a small bunch of flowers at their wrist, usually concealed by their sleeve.




CHATROOM AVAILABILITY: truth be told i've never rped on deviantart before, and i'm unsure how the chatrooms work. however, i'll be present most evenings. i'm available on skype almost constantly to rp or chat!

IM AVAILABILITY: skype and notes both work, although skype is better!

SKYPE NAME: doomstrudels - please tell me who you are and that you're from the group before adding me!

ROLEPLAY SAMPLE: (i can do script or lit, although i do lit more!)

A summons had arisen, a commotion outside. Something that should have summoned Arlie from their furious writing, and yet... they were quite occupied indeed. A verse had come to them, an idea inspired by a tree blowing in the breeze that they had seen. Sure, to most it would not seem the greatest of ideas, but they were determined that they could warp it into something magical-- ha, magical, how fitting!

The call rises again and they sigh, biting down on the pen cap in their mouth before ending their line with a flourish... and then returning to add more. "A breath... ?" they mutter, squinting at the paper. "No, no... more like... a gust, an exhalation, ah, perfect... !"

All of that probably means something to them? One would hope, at least.

Satisfied with their work, anyway, they shove the pen into their pocket, sling their greatcoat over their shoulders and whisk from their lodgings, a zephyr of cinnamon-scented air. Surely something important awaited outside... which they were now late for. Thanks, Arlie!






i've never really applied to a group on deviantart before, so please correct me if i'm doing something wrong! thank you for reading this long-winded thing... jeesh.

So not to add to your list of things to do but, are you open for commissions? ; u; I see that your stamp says you are but I see your journal stating you're busy so I don't want to add to your huge line of work ; w;

Also I do not know why I haven't watched you earlier what the heck is wrong with me. :I
Twillywho Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha yep i am! It just may take a while since im a huge procrastinator
would you like one?

ahh gosh thank you <3333
luigirules64 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Okay sorry for the late reply I just had to decide what I wanted fff-

If you'd like to accept, I would absolutely adore if I could get a couple chibi commission, unshaded. (Which if I'm adding right should be 45 points. Pardon, Math in the morning is bad for me OTL)

I would like these two characters; Aloette: [link] and Zuté: [link] (Aloette is also in the picture, for a better reference of her outfit) I've got a quick reference for Allie if you'd like that as well, which I can note you~ [link] (another reference for Zuté) He belongs to my friend :iconppeacht:, we pair the characters together ; u; It's kinda a gift for her as well so if you wouldn't mind keepin' it on the DL until you finish I would very much like that. ; u; As far as pose ideas or anything, something kinda cute and cuddly or just kinda sweet in a way, like a hug or a smooch or something. I can be more specific but you're more than welcome to come up with the pose. ; u;

Lemme know if you need anything else! C:
