MMKAY SO I was thinking a bunch about Saix's dumb jerkitude and reflecting on the like, childhood headcanons I'd developed that made sense for his brand of jerkitude, and considering how mUCH CHILDHOOD HEADCANON I HAVE that like informs how I play him I thought I'd share it.

SO my feeling is that Canon!Isa was definitely an only child, and that he had those kind of emotionally distant but perfectionistic 80's-movie-Yuppie kind of parents, the kind who have a child to complete their trophy family rather than out of any actual desire for a child, the kind that consider gifts and physical rewards to be an acceptable substitute for actual affection. The kind who expect their child to be top of the class, star of the baseball team, and play the violin, all while presenting a well-behaved face to the world that will reflect well on his family.

Isa himself was something of a loner by nature, and didn't really crave affection from his parents. He easily took it as a given that his relationship with his parents and with authority in general was one of negotiation rather than affection; if he fulfilled his parents' expectations, they would leave him alone to do as he wished. And, on the other side of the coin, if he received what he asked for from his parents, then he would continue to do what they asked of him. Luckily for both parties, Isa was already inclined to do well for his own sense of pride; unluckily, this arrangement turned pride into perfectionism and a stubborn refusal to admit to or accept personal failure.

Isa met Lea in the third grade, and while initially he was disinterested in friendship with the overenthusiastic redhead, Lea made himself so much a presence that Isa eventually got used to him. Lea was the first person to really dole affection on Isa, which took him a while to adapt to as he wasn't used to it, but this cemented Lea's place as the most important person to Isa emotionally. Isa's parents disliked him as being beneath their child, but Lea was the one point on which Isa absolutely would not move; as long as he was allowed to keep hanging around with Lea, Isa would continue to do as was expected of him, but if they tried to cut him off Isa would go on immediate academic strike. It wasn't worth the effort, so his parents accepted this bargain.

Also of note, as a tenth birthday present, Isa's parents gave him a Cocker spaniel puppy, to "teach him responsibility." Luckily for them (and the puppy) he was already extremely responsible for a ten-year-old, and being the one responsible for taking care of the puppy made it impossible for Isa to not bond with him. The dog's name (Buddy) became extremely apt, giving Isa affection of the unconditional sort that he wasn't getting elsewhere. The dog was important enough to Isa that even ten years after losing his heart, Saix is still willing to make concessions based on his remembered fondness for dogs.

His childhood and distant parents bred a tendency for emotional repression into Isa at a young age. He is very good at doing what's expected of him and performing well at his tasks no matter what he thinks of the person giving the orders. Isa was required to not embarrass his family, so he developed a dry, sarcastic wit and a deadpan poker face in response. Lea encouraged him to do more indulging his natural curiosity and was a "bad influence" in getting Isa to cut a little loose and relax, and to do things he maybe wasn't supposed to as long as his parents didn't find out about it. These are traits that he still retains as Saix; doing well for Xemnas despite loathing him, and sneaking around behind Xemnas's back doing things he isn't supposed to with Axel. Unfortunately, he also retains the emotional repression, which absolutely shoots him in the foot and sets him up as a prime candidate for Norting.

SORRY I'VE BEEN SO AWOL, GUYS. It's a little embarrassing to say so but I've just been having a lot of generalized anxiety in the last couple of weeks due to IRL things and it's really been impacting my ability to socialize much. Hopefully now that I'm back at my regular job it'll ease up a bit, but if it doesn't on its own then I'll probably try to just force past it and see what happens.

But yeah, I just wanted to let everybody know what was up and that I'm not dead and haven't abandoned this place, and I'm hoping to get back on the horse soon!

CHARACTERS


Aya

Profile - Neutral Good

In her own universe, Aya was created as the navigational computer for the cutting-edge interstellar vessel the Interceptor. Coupled with that and her role as a self-identified Green Lantern, Aya is used to interacting with all sorts of different species. She's still in denial of the idea that her own universe could simply be gone, but still takes her job seriously and intends to continue her mission, to protect innocent life, in this new world.

In that role, Aya has made a number of new friends, and has also taken on the task of reuniting refugees from the same world, since her flight abilities make it easier. She came into ideological conflict with some other refugees at the very beginning of her stay, but has not seen them again. She has found an ally in Amaterasu and found herself aided out of a dangerous fight by Wadanohara. She became friends with Zidane and helped him reunite with his love, and briefly met Tidus when Zidane asked her to return his phone to him.

She has also become friends with Psyche, who was the first person she met on arrival. Psyche respects the validity of her emotions, and Aya, who is used to being part of a team, helps her whenever she can. Recently she has acted as a go-between with Psyche and Axel, who she felt a bond with and is fond of. She has also met a few AIs like her, most recently Fi, and is very interested in finding some who feel as individual as she, with whom she can find kinship. And finally, she retains hope of loved ones from home appearing again.


Garnet til Alexandros XVII

Profile - Neutral Good

Garnet was a Queen in the world she left behind, raised most of her life to the throne of Alexandria. So spending her first few weeks in this world in the gutter was an eye-opener, only glancingly meeting other refugees. Though she's reunited (and then some) with Zidane and her circumstances have changed, the realities of life in the slums has stayed with her. She has spent the last two months helping Zidane renovate their new home, the Opera House, but now she's looking to expand her social circle and find a way to eliminate the existence of the slums.


Yuna

Profile - Lawful Good

Yuna initially arrived alone, but she's always been good at meeting other people. She first met and bonded with Wadanohara, who reminded her much of a younger version of herself. She briefly helped Hermione look for her cat, and was nearly blown up meeting Deidara. At the same time, she met Zidane, and became friendly with him. Zidane asked Aya to help Yuna find Tidus.

Reuniting with Tidus made things much more settled for Yuna. With someone close to her nearby, she has been much less lonely and has been able to focus on getting herself settled. She spent the late fall building adjacent yurts on the seashore for she and Tidus, weaving nets and catching and drying fish and seaweed and generally making their little two-person settlement livable. But with that settled and winter coming on, Yuna is looking to meet more people, and maybe find a little more income (and warmer clothes) for the cold months.


Saix

Profile - True Neutral

Like Yuna, this is not Saix's first apocalyptic rodeo. Unlike her though, Saix is accustomed to world-hopping, and this is the second time Saix has experienced his entire world being destroyed, so he's landed with both feet firmly underneath him. His first order of business will be scoping out his new environment and reorienting his plans to the sudden change in circumstance. He's found the only person from his world he cared about, but he and Axel are in conflict over Axel's attachment to a few 'locals.' At the same time, Saix is immensely curious about one of them, Psyche, and (disbelieving her honest explanation) is keeping tabs on her to work out what her power really is.
