Basic Character Information

First Name: Acacia
Middle Name: Aldous
Last Name: Grimm
Epithet: "Kurotane" ("Black Seed")
Birthdate: August 25, 1801
Gender: Male
Race: Human (Part-time Snorlax)
Faction: New Revolutionary Army
Former Navy Rear Admiral: Acacia was once a commissioned rear-admiral among the marines with his own ship and crew. As such, he’s an experienced—albeit unwilling—leader and is exceptionally effective at disciplining his subordinates. The tricky part is motivating him to do so. He’d much rather sleep and let someone else play the boss.
Swordsman: Being a member of a militaristic family, Acacia was introduced to many forms of weaponry and martial arts. Through his experience as a marine, he was able to build upon this and improve his swordsmanship.
Painter: As a child, his family required him to learn and master at least one craft or art. Having no particular interests of his own, he went with his older sister’s choice—painting. Despite the low expectations of his father, the boy turned out to be surprisingly good at it. Once he left the influence of his family, he never cared to paint for others' pleasure and has since kept his talent hidden.

Physical Appearance

Height: 8'5" / 257 cm
Weight: 351 lbs / 159 kg
Hair Style: Acacia's hair is of moderate length, and would reach halfway down his neck if it wasn't so naturally spiky (he’s far too lazy and uncaring to actually style his hair - must be nice to have God-given good looks). More strangely, his hair remains stubbornly spiky even when wet—except for the three or four pointed locks always hanging loosely over his forehead and temples.
Hair Color: Abyssal black
Eye Color: Devilish red
Scars: Acacia has a long slash wound stretching diagonally across his back. He also has several skin discolorations, burns, and stitch marks on his chest and limbs.
Clothing and Accessories:
Acacia is usually seen wearing monochromatic clothing, with blue and black tones and white accents. His favourite article of clothing is a black hoodie with a dramatically baggy hoody. Several graceful porcelain-white wings are printed on this hoodie, which lend Acacia an uncharacteristic fashionable appearance.

Under the hoodie, Acacia mostly wears cotton crew-neck shirts with less flashy prints, again, maintaining the monochromatic colour scheme. This applies to his bottoms also, which vary wildly from jeans to cargo shorts to track pants but are always coloured black or darker shades of blue.

His footwear varies between flip-flops, sandals, and combat boots depending on the weather and the combination of garments. Sandals are his favourite choice with cargo shorts, while combat boots often go with jeans or heavier trousers.

The former rear admiral carries with him two trinkets of note. One is a sterling silver necklace named “Broken Promise", and the other is a jewel-less gold ring named “Grimm’s Fate". A scythe against a crescent moon is embossed upon Grimm’s Fate’s crown. The shoulders of the ring are wide, while the band smoothly narrows towards the middle. Acacia wears this ring openly on the middle finger of his right hand, but he rarely makes known how he came to own it.

Broken Promise is actually a sterling silver medal welded on top of a gem-shaped gunmetal locket. This medal itself is shaped like a single wing with a jagged edge where the other missing wing might’ve been. The locket has a silver trim around it and hangs from a heavy chain. Acacia never lets Broken Promise or Grimm’s Fate be out of his reach for more than a few seconds, even when allowing a curious someone to ogle inspect them.

Detailed Description:
Acacia has a reasonably tall and muscular frame, and his diligent training and exercises help maintain a good muscle tone. His warm brown skin is blemished and scarred from countless careless encounters. His wide shoulders and waist lend him a certain air of authority.

Acacia has salient and peering red eyes which—paired with his unrelenting, disapproving expressions—seem to be staring daggers at or judging condescendingly whomever he happens to be looking at. His jaws are sharp and somewhat broad, and his neck is thick enough to not sit awkwardly atop his robust build. He also has a very eye-catching Adam's apple that moves about perceivably when he speaks.

Acacia is a bundle of happiness and joy, always running about cheering others up with his unending positivity. Okay yeah, that’s a complete, barefaced lie if you hadn’t gathered already.

Acacia is in fact the complete opposite of the false description above. He broods, he frowns, and he puts others down with his pessimism and bottomless negativity. However, within this hopeless demeanour lies a man very confident in his own abilities and the abilities of those he respects and follows. This side of him becomes apparent during crises where he has absolutely no excuses to apply his usual layabout and grumpy personality. Such situations often arise in the form of combat, where he’ll put his unwavering faith in himself and those he’s acknowledged as strong individuals.

Having said that, it takes a lot for him to believe in someone to that extent. He will openly mock those he considers to be weak, and chirp on their uselessness if they get in his way. But, regardless of this complaining and insulting, he will not fail to act in defence of said weaklings if he’s convinced of their abundance of value or virtue.

Outside of critical encounters, Acacia’s habits swing between two wildly contradicting phases. When training and studying, Acacia is incomparably studious. He often pushes himself beyond his limits during these times and refuses to stop even past utter exhaustion. On the other hand, outside of these arduous sessions, the man is a complete sloth. He is slow to respond to non-critical emergencies and usually sleeps through the day while relying on others to do even his share of the chores.

He’s usually left alone in either situation, for he responds explosively to being interrupted from both sleep and training. His otherwise distant and silently-judging personality also flips in such cases. But, despite his reserved nature, he can sometimes be charismatic and commanding when serious, and will reveal his outspoken side in an argument—even if it’s a simple roast throwdown.

Acacia can also be surprisingly humble, and will often forfeit credit for a decent or even a heroic act to avoid becoming the center of attention. Instead, he prefers to assist from the shadows, choosing to hide his true self from others for the most part. This also applies to certain habits and interests of his, such as reading and painting.

Lastly, Acacia is often the most cynical amongst his peers, and yet just as often the voice of reason. He will always look at situations with a critical and removed perspective. This sometimes leads to sharp and insightful deductions when he doesn’t take things too personally, but more often than not, it simply leads him into avoidable conflicts with his peers.
