PostSubject: [WIP] Edin Cook   [WIP] Edin Cook EmptyWed Oct 21, 2015 8:46 pm

Personal Information

First & Last Name: Mael Strumm
Age: 22
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: Red
Weight & Height: 240 cm, 250 Kg

Appearance & Clothing: Edin is most simply put a mammoth of a man. He has a hulking physique that greatly limits his clothing options, even the largest sizes of attire are stretch on his frame. To deal with this he opts to wear mostly tank tops so that his arms range of motion is not impeded. Additionally he has deemed it worth the effort to avoid "The Hulk's Pants Dilemma," and has all his leg wear custom tailored to his giant self. Since he goes out of the way to get them specially made he makes especially large and baggy enough that even though he prefers long pants they rarely impede his movement. He wears a perpetual scowl so deep that even when he smiles his forehead remains creased.

Special features: He has a half Glasgow smile that he has made no attempt to sew up giving him a savage appearance.

Origin and family

Origin: Gordeau Desert (Small town a ways outside of Yorknew)

Family & close People:

-Father and Mother: Sam Cook and Sarah Cook were a rather poor married couple who lived in a town located in one of the slightly more habitable parts of Gordeau Desert. Edin was their only son, mostly because they couldn't afford to raise another(not that they could afford to raise the one). They ended up dieing when Edin was about 4 because of the actions of Gourmet Hunter Midoria.

-Master: Gourmet Hunter Midoria is a man whose name went down in infamy. Not for acts of villainy but because of a horribly careless mistake. His mistake cost Edin his family at a young age and forever cursed the young boy. Seeking penance Midoria would take in the young child and would raise him to live with his curse which eventually led to training in nen(see history for further details). However instead of saving his soul raising Edin only served to constantly remind Midoria of his grave mistake and would lead to his eventual suicide just after Edin hit adult hood and set out on his own.


Personality & Behaviour:
Above all else Edin is hungry. He has been his entire life thanks to a childhood tragedy(see history, actually reading his history is probably a better place to start then his personality). Even when he has guzzled down all the food his stomach can hold he still feels on the brink of starvation. However as he has felt this hunger his whole life he has come to just sort of deal with it(but that doesn't mean he likes it). While he can tolerate the hunger he feels when stuffed full of food, when his stomach actually begins to empty it quickly becomes unbearable and he can turn violent in his pursuit of something to eat. This hunger and need to always be eating has made social interaction highly difficult for Edin. This paired with his curious upbringing has limited his social development growing up causing him to lack maturity.

He is constantly grim and is rather irritable. The constant pain in his stomach always has him in an unpleasant mood. When you also factor in his lack of maturity one can assume that he is a bit of a jerk because of this. He always has his next meal on the mind and prioritizes other people below eating. However that fortunately does not equate to him eating people.

But on the other hand he has always been curious about the taste...

Backing up to the "bit of a jerk," part. This is most evident in his excessive selfishness. He is highly driven to get what he wants(normally food), with little regards to others. When sitting at a table with Mael one will likely be quickly agitated as he shamelessly swipes food off their plate. Of course being human he has other desires, and you can be sure he won't even think about others in trying to fulfill them.

His understanding of societal norms is sub par to say the least. He can struggle through existing near normal people just enough to get by on occasion, but something like holding a job or going to school would be beyond him. For the sake of obtaining food or meeting his other basic needs he is not beyond making an attempt to interact with people but prolonged interaction will hardly go well. A wolf can only be kept on a leash so long.

The bottom line is a bit sad. His hunger has forced unto him a rather primitive mind. Any sophisticated thought suffocated by the desire to eat. Should he ever ease his supernatural appetite he would likely become some kind of "man-child." A horribly under developed human with the malleable mind of child, a blank book waiting to be written in.

Strengths & Weaknesses:

-The Hunger: He's a starving wolf wearing the clothes of a man. His priorities are broken and warped to a terrible degree. This makes functioning in society incredibly difficult.

-Savagery: While a strength in battle his animal like behavior generally gets him in more trouble then it gets him out of. He is easily angered and becomes violent when angry or hungry(he is frequently both of these things). Needless to say he has run into trouble with the law on more then a few occasions.

-Big Picture: One would think his animistic behavior would allow him to be easily distracted. Which it does, but he is able to recognize the big picture. He won't stop fighting the man who is standing between him and the town food supply just because you throw a biscuit his way. In this way he has surprising amounts of focus.

Goals: Edin wants to end his hunger. He has been hungry all his life and he is fed up with it. He seeks food in both great quantity and quality. Because of the origin of his curse he believes that it can be ended if he eats enough delicious food.


Edin was a small town poor boy. Pretty standard fare backstory type stuff really. But when he was only four the gourmet hunter Midoria turned his world upside down.

Midoria was a respected gourmet hunter most of his career until he discovered a fantastic new tree which grew incredibly delicious fruit. Excited about his discovery and eager to help those in need he harvested the fruit and immediately shared them with a poor town(Edin's home town) near where the tree was discovered. But that was his mistake, that fruit would later become known as The Baptism Apple because its flavor came from the fact that the tree they were picked from was so abundant in life energy that it was essentially a very low level nen user. Eating its fruit served as nen baptism to anyone who were not already enabled with nen. As a very small percentage of people could survive a nen baptism those poor people Midoria shared them with almost all died within a few hours of eating them. All because Midoria somehow failed to notice the nen within the fruit, a blunder so great he was forever shamed by the hunter community.

Among those who perished were Edin's parents.

However despite eating the fruit Edin lived. He was among the lucky few capable of surviving a nen baptism. But the experience cursed him. He had tasted food so good it could only be wrought by nen. Between the shock of the baptism and the flavor of the fruit his body was changed in such a way that he would forever have a hunger that could only be satisfied by eating other food imbued with nen.

Seeking penance for his horrible mistake Midoria took in the orphan and did everything he could to ease his suffering. Only because of Midoria's skills as a gourmet hunter was Edin able to survive his childhood with his monstrous appetite. Midoria knew he wouldn't be around forever so he trained Edin from a young age to be strong enough to hunt for food on his own. An incredible diet only made possible by being the charge of a gourmet hunter and his training from a young age would eventually lead to his immense size. However just as Edin began to really develop as a nen user Midoria finally caved to the disgrace of his mistake and committed suicide leaving Edin to fend for himself.

The first few years were rough needless to say. Having to focus on getting enough food just to stay alive Edin ended up neglecting his training. This combined with the sudden cut off from Gourmet Hunter class cuisine set Edin's training back considerably. However just recently he has begun to handle his appetite and he is working to gain the strength required to seek truly delicious gourmet.
