AU Background: It all started with Ammy's dad's hobby shop. Amadeus grew up in the second floor of the store, but spent most of his youth avoiding it. His father's dream had been to create a haven for nerds and the like, but the constant ruckus from the first floor made Ammy less inclined to go ever get involved. It wasn't until he was sixteen, and realized how horribly atrocious his dad was at book keeping that Ammy ever had any interest in the business at all. His father had begun dating near-constantly, and with their relationship strained, Ammy took care of watching over the front desk. That's how he met Victor (AU!Vriska). The two became friends fast due in part to Victor's forward attitude. However, Victor also made fun of Ammy near-constantly because the boy knew next to nothing about the D&D supplies and such that the store sold.

One day, Victor came in, with an offer- the DM who was running the campaign he was playing in needed more people for a side campaign. Ammy didn't know what to think of it really, but took the offer. That's when he met Raiden (AU!Dave), Briar (AU!Rose), and Echidna (AU!Jade). It wasn't clear at first, but as the campaign went on for weeks, Ammy eventually got the feeling that Dick...didn't like him much. After John's first IC death, the group was at their breaking point. It took the combined powers of all four players to effectively break the campaign, taking revenge for all Dick's asshole moves and hazing, with all four characters achieving God Tier. They had set it up so their campaign would be merged with the "Troll" campaign Victor and the others were in, since Dick was likewise trying to ruin their game as well...but at the last minute, Dick forced the group of four to roll up new characters. With the special note that Amadeus had to play a Crocker, poking sarcasm in to Am's diabetes. To put it bluntly, Am nearly had a moment.

John and Amadeus differ in a lot of ways- John may be a bit self-mockery on Am's part. For one, no meteors destroyed Earth! Ammy isn't as oblivious as his character, and he actually has a very acidic relationship with his father, deep down. The man is always off doing this or that, being a "hippie", which caused resentment to seep in. Ammy has no interest in movies or programming either, and mostly gave those to John because of the Con Air jokes about his stuffed rabbit.

Personality: Amadeus is a childish teenager in many ways, but otherwise average. He's responsible, quiet, and carries a stuffed rabbit in his badass Captain America backpack at all times. Shy and withdrawn, he only really opens up online, and at that he's usually very passive and quick to to be non-confrontational. The few friends he has stem from his bi-weekly D&D campaign, where he plays a thirteen year old kid named John in some weird campaign run by a guy named Dick. It started out as harmless fun, but...quickly became an event, in and of itself.

Ammy has a lot of other hobbies- sewing was his earliest, but he also enjoys magic tricks, science, ghost stories, the paranormal, roller coasters, swimming, and utaite (a guilty pleasure, honest!!). He also works the counter at his dad's hobby shop, and balances their funds for the business. Amadeus is phenomenal at math, and can do computations with ease in his head. He's good at playing the piano as well, and can cook well enough to feed himself and his dad.

Ammy is very naive, and always trying to think of ways to keep everyone working together, so they don't end up like the Troll Campaign. Lucky for him, the Kid Campaign players seem to be on much better footing with one another. Echidna (Chi) is like a sister to him, and Rai is his best friend forever. He's very clingy with his friends, not liking being separated for them when the opportunity presents itself to hang out. He tries to laugh away his insecurities, but he has his fair share of issues. Ammy is so far in the closet that he might as well tunnel to China, and his dad's irresponsibility and constant dating have taken a toll on him. As well, Dick seems to have it out for him- openly mocking and threatening his stuffed rabbit, throwing John in to the campaign first when Ammy had no experience with the system, and rubbing in Amadeus's diabetes by making him roll up Jane with a Betty Crocker background. It's nowhere near the hazing Karl (Karkat's player) gets, but deep down, Amadeus is growing a bit wary about how seriously Dick takes the campaign.

Abilities: Ammy is good at math, business and money things, as well as hard sciences. However, he can also play piano, and is trying (in vain) to learn to play Matryoshka. Amadeus is good at magic tricks, and at the very least passable at all of his other hobbies. He's also got a rudimentary understanding of D&D, but...you're better off asking anyone else. He forgets details, rolls, and dicerolls almost immediately after being told about them. If left to stand around for too long with music around, Ammy eventually gives in to free stepping. He's trying to learn to pop'n'lock, but it's slow going.
Sample Entry: Dear mun, and a silly thing.
herpderphero: (the most HEROIC HOOD ever!)
-Type 1 diabetic. Has been as long as he can remember. It's not a big deal to him anymore.

-Taught himself to sew, and made Liv (Liviana) when he was young. He's patched her up since forever. Is basically hellishly attached to her, even at his age.

-Made other rabbit dolls after Liv. They line the walls of his bedroom. If his house ever caught fire, he'd probably despair forever. But he'd go back in to get Liv.

-A math god. Can do stupid complex computations in his head. Basically handles the hobbyshop's budgeting and taxes, even at his age. His second love is SCIENCE!!!!!!! (Cooking, by the way, is a science.)

-He's not uncreative, but...he's pretty horrible at english and writing. It's just not his business.

-Not very good at enjoying himself conventionally. His dad worries about him working the counter at the hobbyshop so much, but he enjoys it. Even if he doesn't know jack about any of the Warhammer or D&D stuff.

-Pretty much convinced his parents named him 'Amadeus' because of the Falco song. Decided to play piano because of Mozart. Yes, he's aware of the irony.

-Loves ghost stories, and psychic stuff- but also a fan of magic tricks and pranks. Combine this with his adoration of math and science, and Am is pretty eclectic with his hobbies.


-Wanted to join swimteam, but he'd be embarrassed if he had a bloodsugar incident during it...so he wussed out.

-Rambles a lot and apparently Dick finds him irritating as hell, hence 'heir of breath'.

-Victor took Am under his wing and pretty much apprenticed him IC and OOC. Luckily I doubt Victor is bisexual so there's no awkward romantic subplot triangle going on here.

-Is shy/intimidated by the trollplayers because they're all older and they drink and they're loud and racous and he's not.

-Makes horrible, godawful puns (i.e. pulling Liv out of his hood, LOL COS HE LIKES MAGIC TRICKS, AND RABBITS OUT OF HATS!!!!!!!!)

-When not IC, tends to spam punctuation marks.


-Cheapy mccheaperson. lol probably jewish


-He may well have been the one to inspire the whole godtier-hood idea.

-Despite "victor is probably not bisexual" thing, he is both endeared by and creeped out by vriska's crush thing. On one hand, it was cute. On the other, the troll campaign is notorious for not seperating IC from OOC too well, and...uh...

-Used to play Magic: The Gathering a lot as a kid, because his dad had all the cards readily available. Still pretty good at it, but has nobody to play with. Tried to play YGO! with Tammy, but she kicked his ever-living ass (what is holding back) and he just gave up.

-The hobbyshop isn't only D&D and tabletop games; it has a small arcade section, a basement for LARP, a LAN game room, and sections for weird candy, geek toys, magic tricks, the like. Guess which section Am latched on to as a kid?

-The family lives on the second floor of the hobbyshop.

-Had asthma as a kid, but it got better.

-No mom. His dad is a single father, prone to dating, and a "liver of life" in his own words. A bit of a romanticist. Am may be adopted after all lolololo

-...yeah, he's deep in the closet and ain't coming out in terms of sexuality. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN HIS TWO IC LOVE INTERESTS ARE PLAYED BY OLDER MEN. He plays John ICly as straight, if not oblivious.

-Refuses to go to college cos he already knows business geez dad!!!!! In reality, he just doesn't want to spend money. And who would work the counter at the shop? How would his dad keep up his romance life? What the heck could he major in if NOT business?

-Finds it easier to communicate with the trollplayers IC on the messenger thing, because it's not face to face. Very intimidated by the idea of them merging their game.

-Dick forced him to make Nanna/Jane for the new campaign, despite Am basically pleading with him not to.

-Does not swear. His dad taught him better.

-Thinks Eric(+his scarf thing) is cool. Also Sam and Anna. Intimidated by Kan cos she's a lesbian and he's a closetcase. Worries about Karl but stays faaar away.
