Kunal Vergara - DONE sort of

Post by Tumbleweed on Tue Apr 16, 2013 11:19 am

Name: Kunal Diven Vergara. Kunal got his first name from his mother's grandfather or his great grandfather. The name "Kunal" has various meanings, essentially an Indian name, it has roots in Arabic, spanish and sanskrit. Variations of his name are Kunala or Kunāl. The name Kunal in Hindi, Arabic, and Spanish means "Eagle" or "Protector of the Skies", thus it meaning 'Kunal' symbolises the Eagle. Its meaning in modern hindi is simple "that which is pure or holy". His middle name "Diven" means "wine" in haitian creole and is a reference to his parentage, although Kunal doesnt realise this until much later. His last name "Vergara" is of Spanish origin suggesting that his ancestors may have come from Spain however this too far back to be reflected on his family tree.

Nicknames: Kunal's name is simple and hard to shorten. Also he doesnt much like nicknames preferring to be called by his first name or his middle name.
Age: Kunal is 17 years old and was born on 12th december.

Gender: Kunal is biologically male, he also identifies with the male gender. However Kunal is not the stereotypical alpha male and has various attributes that may be considered "feminine" such as he gives a lot of importance to grooming and has a deep fondness for the arts, he particularly enjoys opera.

God/dess Parent: Kunal's Godly parent is none other then all around well loved and popular (haha) camp director, Mr. D also known as Dionysus and sometimes referred to as the "wine dude". Dionysus is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology. the last god to be accepted into Mt. Olympus. He was the youngest and the only one to have a mortal mother. A son of Zeus, he is also the Lord of all satyrs and God of Epiphany though these are some of his lesser known traits. Leopards are sacred to him and he enjoys turning people into dolphins. He is usually found in the big house playing card games with Chiron. His preffered clothing is hawaii-esque floral print shirts and his favoured drink is diet coke, (since he isnt allowed wine anymore). Dionysus chased after an out-of-bounds nymph and as punished was banished to camp half blood to serve as camp director for a hundred year, he uses his powers on the plants such as strawberries which helps with Camp Half Blood's expenses as their cover name is Delphi Strawberry Service.. He spends most of his time cursing his punishment, mispronouncing/ deliberately refusing to remember demigod's names, trying to beat Chiron at card games and terrorizing satyrs.

Powers: No powers purchased yet.

Hometown: Kunal was born in Brentwood, in the state of California in Los Angeles, United States of America. He is thus an American by birth and holds an American passport. However Kunal is orginally from South India and belongs to the Dravidian Race. However, he doesnt feel very connected to his origins as he spent barely a couple of years in India before his mother began taking him along with her on his travels all year long. He eventually stopped identifying with a particular country and considers himself a global citizen. Kunal has a neutral accent although his speech shows the influence of many languages. Owing to his travels, he speaks many languages fluently and can converse adequately in many others as well. His conversations are peppered with foreign words although he speaks English perfectly.


Mortal Parent(s): Kunal's mortal parent is Rita Vergara. Rita was from an aristocratic Indian family, having been cared for by nannies and attendants all her life and having received her education at first from a private tutor and then from exclusive boarding schools Rita never felt particularly connected with her family. To some extent it is this alienation that she has passed on to Kunal who never felt a sense of belonging to any place or person before he reached camp half blood. At the age of 16 she was sent to a finishing school in Mussoorie, which is a hill station in northern India. After finishing her course there, over a couple of years she returned to Delhi which is where her family lived. As heiress of the Vergara family's massive fortune, she did not have to bother herself with work or anything of that sort and instead busied herself as a socialite and opened a number of art galleries around the country. She soon became a fashion icon and a popular figure on the social front. Young, beautiful and charming, Rita had no troubles in steadily adding to the Vergara fortune. However privileged, her closeted existence began to bore her and at the age of 19 she left Delhi, in what many saw as bold move. Despite her fame and money, Rita experience had been very limited and she had little or no knowledge of the world outside India and of the international arena, quickly picking it all up Rita quickly rose to be one of the most prominent figures on the international social scene. When she's not in L.A, she's in Milan, or London or Paris.. you get the point. So basically unless you've been living on a cave at the edge of civilization, you've probably heard of her. She's now an international fashion icon, socialite and all round party animal. For mom standards she's also extremely young, since she had Kunal when she was only 22. For this reason Kunal seems to regard her more as an older sister in her wild phase rather than as a mom, he is a bit put off by the idea that she's his mother although at most social gatherings he was identified as her son.

On her twenty-second birthday, Rita threw a huge party the likes of which surpassed the limits of most people's imaginations. Littered with A list movie stars, socialites, Big-wigs of the fashion industry and billionaire friends from all over the world, the party would eventually turn into the stuff of legend. Midway through the night, a young, handsome and slightly inebriated young man offered Rita a glass of her favourite wine, Carbernet Sauvignon. More than slightly inebriated herself, Rita was almost instantly swept away by his charm and spent the rest of the party laughing and chatting with him. Little did she know at the time, that he was Dionysus, the God of wine himself. Two weeks of courtship ensued, at the end of which after a particularly tipsy night, Dionysus explained to Rita all about the God's, who he was and that their future son or daughter would eventually have to leave to go to a place called "Camp half blood". That was the last Rita ever saw of him, though often in years later she would continue to think of him fondly. Naturally she put their conversation down to druken memories and hallucinations, however she never could shake of the uneasy feeling she had about it. Sure enough, their son was born 9 months later and Rita remained terrified of the possibility that her drunken 'dream' was more than just a dream after all.

Although like Rita, her soon too had the benefit of a privileged upbringing, in some ways he's had a childhood that almost at poles with his mothers. While her own childhood was closeted and limited in scope, Rita's son has seen it all and done it all. He's had experiences in his short life so far that most adults can only dream of experiencing. Having travelled around the world with his mother, he and Rita bonded in some measure but Rita although affectionate to her only soon is simple not "mother material" as she likes to say herself. Nevertheless, she ensured the best care for Kunal when he was too young to accompany her on her travels and later a whole host of attendants including a private tutor like she herself had. They maintained a generally good relationship, as Kunal in the meantime was brought up by a whole host of Rita's staff and entourage. As Kunal approached his teens, his relationship with his mother became turbulent as he began rebelling against her and began to question their life and her decisions, often culminating in ugly fights. While she brushed this away as merely a phase, Rita began to feel slightly uneasy knowing that the time was close when she would have to reveal Kunal's true identity to him. When Kunal was 13 after one of his mother's extravagant society parties, incidently where he had his first sip of wine, he was claimed in his sleep. Rita had wandered into his suite for some reason or another and saw the holographic symbol of a wine goblet with a creeper entwined around it floating over the sleeping Kunal's head. She screamed and woke Kunal, who upon hearing of his mother's 'vision', told her she was drunk and to go back to her own suite. For Rita however, the memory was seared in her mind and she never forgot it. She knew now what she had feared for 18 years, that everything Dionysus had told her had been true. She knew the time was not far when Kunal would leave, but in her typical knack of avoiding uncomfortable things Rita ignored the incident in the morning pretending it never happened, causing Kunal to follow suite. When he finally left for camp, Rita told everyone in her social cicrle that he was away at boarding school in England. Kunal has visited his mother once since he came to camp and is yet unsure about how much she knows about his identity, since she never brought up either his disappearance nor his prolonged absence. And where his mother is concerned Kunal has learnt to leave touchy topics alone.
Physical Description:
Skin Tone: Kunal has brown skin as do most people in South India. His mocha coloured skin often makes people assume he has a permanent tan.

Eye Color: Kunal has striking black eyes. They are one of his most expressive features and can almost always tell you what he's thinking. They usually seem to have caught the light and are twinkling in amusement at some private joke. His eyes are almond shaped and quite small, the tend to become narrow slits when he laughs.

Hair Color: Kunal has dark chocolate brown curls. He inherited them from his mother and he often jokes that they're the only thing that proves that they are related.

Hair Length: Kunal's hair is generally long and unruly. It's longer toward the front than the back. His mother has often referred to it as a "mop". His hair covers his ears slightly and most of his forehead, it falls in his eyes frequently and this annoys him so he goes and cuts it off but it grows back within a few weeks. The fact that his hair is curly, shortens its length to a great extent. If it were straight it would probably come down to his shoulders.

Height: Kunal is 6.1 feet tall. He used to be just 5feet until he was 15, when he hit a growth spurt and shot right up. He also took up swimming around that time and this contributed significantly to his growth.

Weight: Kunal weighs 74kgs, which is approximately 163 pounds. He used to be painfully thin, about 69kgs before he started working out and eating healthy. Naturally he metabolism is really high so he doesnt put on weight easily.

Body Type: Kunal has a well toned and muscular body. However he is not a beef cake. He's slim and toned but would not be described as beefy by anyone. He has a broad chest and the powerful shoulders of a swimmer and his torso tapers down toward his waist.
Weapon: Kunal's weapon is a long celestial bronze sword with vines engraved below the hilt. It is about 36 inches, 3 feet in length. The vines are long twisted grape vines, the hilt is silver.
Armor: Kunal doesnt like to wear any armor. He fights offence rather than defense and likes to remain quick and agile. Heavy armor would wiegh him down. However when he needs to be in proper battle gear sometimes, he wears silver armour that consists of a helmet with deep purple plumes, a breastplate and a shield that is engraved with grape vines.

Personality: This Indian-origin demigod is at once both similar and strikingly different from his godly parent. Cheerful and friendly and a social delight, Kunal is the perfect remedy if you're having a bad day. Chivalry comes naturally to him and if you need advice about etiquette or fine dining, he's your man. Careful not to stick around too long however or you may find yourself getting roped into one of his risky schemes that more often than not end in trouble. For someone who seems like he stepped out of the pages of a Victorian classic, Kunal has a prominent affinitity for flouting the law and a dangerous lack of regard for any form of authority.

Pets: None

Talents: Kunal is very sociable and popular, can instantly liven up any party, is very fun and has a knack for making people feel comfortable with him, he is very knowledgeable about wines and fine dining, he is trained in formal etiquette. Kunal can play the piano very well and has recieved formal training in the same. He has also given a couple of piano concerts.

Weaknesses: Kunal is extremely vengeful and holds grudges. Once he develops a vendetta against someone, he is consumed by the need for revenge and this often overcomes his logic as well. Due to this nature, his is often rigid about his beliefs, once he makes up his mind, he is not willing to acknowledge anything to the contrary and very rarely changes his mind. He will go to any extent to get what he wants. He is cynical of people and does not trust easily, thus his world is limited to very few people and he does not like letting more people past his defences. He does not forgive easily. Kunal also has an addictive personality, he may get obsessive about things and then becomes dependent on them this holds true even for people. His personal loyalty is also sometimes a weakness as he puts the people he cares about abopve everything else and this puts him in a very vulnerable position as he feels responsible for the saftely and happiness of the people he loves and would do anything to keep it intact even at his own expense. Also it would be easy for his enemies to control him if they observe him and find out what or whom he cares about.

Fears: Kunal's greatest fear would be losing his loved ones. As he has only very few people he truly cares about and loves, his world revolves around them, losing them or having any harm come to them would completely shatter him especially since he would also feel responsible for the same. Kunal is afraid of fire and doesnt like to be close to it, he feels like he has a vague memory for some bad experience with fire in his childhood but cannot recall it exactly, however the fear has stayed with him.

Time at Camp: Kunal has been at Chb only for a couple of months now, but it's begun to feel like home for him.

Brief History of Before Camp: He jet-setted around the world with his socialite mother. During his travels he deveoped a taste for the finer things in life and believes life is all about pleasure and revelries. Although he traveled with his mother, their lives were largely separate and there wasnt much of a mother-son relationship between them. He frequently took off on his own and returned weeks later. He loved parties and was a complete social pleasure, his mother loved showing him off at her parties as he was intelligent and charming. In many ways he lived the dream life of a child of dionysus, however he was very lonely on the inside as he had no real friends and he knew that his mother wouldnt take care of him if he really needed help. Once when at a party at the plaza in New York, he simply walked out and never looked back. He wandered the streets of New york for a while and quickly ran out of money, he befriended a homeless man who turned out to be a satyr and brought him to camp.

Role-play Example: Kunal smiled at the people around him as he accepted another glass of wine. Empty masks, he thought as his smile turned slightly stale. Taking a sip of his wine, he turned to the elderly gentleman who was standing by his side and made some meaningless comment about how lovely the party was. His eyes glazed over as the man responded something equally meaningless he was sure. Kunal smiled and nodded vacantly, wondering where his mother had gotten to. Probably off somewhere chatting up a wealthy business man no doubt, he thought bitterly. Kunal was surprised at himself, he had loved this life, relished it, was it possible that it now beginning to tire him? Did he need something new to occupy his fancies? These thoughts in mind, Kunal muttered "Excuse me" suddenly to his companion, aware of the shocked expression that crossed the old man's features. He set his glass down and whirled in the opposite direction, heading downstairs and right out the door.
