Name: Adam Jensen (he was adopted at age 5--it's unknown what his birth name is)

Age: 34 (DOB March 9th, 1993, Pisces)

Sex/Gender: Male on both accounts.

Sexual Orientation: Straight for the most part; feels romantic attraction towards women exclusively. According to headcanon, he's had a few homosexual encounters. On the Kinsey Scale, he'd be a one. I'm personally comfortable with playing both het and slash, though Adam will not be entering a gay relationship within any proper game setting.

Alignment: Neutral to Chaotic Good

Personality: Good guy at heart, but incredibly jaded, disillusioned and morally gray. Dirty Harry. Closed off loner. Self-loathing. Bitter. Always trying to take care of people and occasionally failing. Dry, deadpan humor. Cynic. Stand-offish. Practical and resourceful. Emotional. Loyal and supportive to those that deserve it. Dependable. Driven. Explorer. Picks jackass dialogue choices half of the time Can be rude, abrasive and dismissive. Blunt, says what he thinks, and does not care what you think.

Eyes: Adam's original eye color was blue-gray, but his artificial eyes are a very bright green with a tinge of gold. He usually hides them behind his reflective lenses.

Hair: Dark, brown, short hair which is usually smoothed back. He grooms a beard, but his other skin (or what's left of it) is clean shaven.

Physical Traits: Adam is 6'3 ft tall, weighs 182 lbs and is very physically fit. Notable are, of course, his prostheses--his arms are completely made of black metal and polymer (synthetic plastic and rubber) and his legs stop being his own at about his knee. They're not usually visible but when they are, they'd look somewhat like this (in black).

Adam has a lot of metal lodged under his skin and sticking out of it, especially around his neck, shoulders, and thighs; keeping his body together. His skin has a number of scars sustained in combat and during surgery.

He has various cranial augmentations, one of them being his protective, retractable lenses which are directly attached to his skull. Then there's his hacking add-on, implanted in his forehead and marked with a hexagonal imprint. There's a rather notable scar on the left side of his face, running from his eyebrow over his cheekbone down to below his ear, again sustained during surgery.

Visual reference: ONE, TWO, THREE (nsfw)

As he's usually wearing turtlenecks and a long coat, the only augmentations visible at first glance would be his shades and the metallic looking hands (unless he's wearing gloves).

Voice: Batman Clint Eastwood Deep and masculine, gravelly--smoker's voice. Perpetual gruff drawl. Terse and uninflected most of the time, even under pressure, so his true emotions rarely show in his tone. However he tends to modify his own way of speaking during important conversations and negotiations to sound more personable and relatable on top of using psychology, likely a trait/skill he picked up while working as a cop. VA: Elias Toufexis.

Languages: Native English speaker. Apparently has a basic grasp on other languages such as Russian, Spanish, French, and Mandarin.

Occupation: After finishing his studies in Criminal Justice, Adam worked as a cop at the Detroit Police Department. Volunteered for SWAT; quickly rose in the ranks and became team commander. Quit his job out of dissatisfaction and was hired by Sarif Industries as Chief of Security.



Additionally, he's also fairly adept with firearms.

Other Notes: The permission post for his social enhancer is over here, and I encourage everyone who's going to interact with Adam to fill it out! I've also got a general permissions/kink info post here.

Threadhopping/threadjacking: I generally prefer to be notified first! Unless it's something lighthearted, then go right ahead.

Backtagging: Yes, forever and ever.

Fourthwalling: No.

Attack/Injure: Yes. However keep in mind he'll fight back, and believe me when I say his fist to your face will HURT.

Intoxicate: Ask first.

Mindfuck/Rape/Torture/Kill/etc.: Rape is a no-go in general. For all others, let's talk about it first.

Hug/Kiss: He won't like it unless you are a VERY close friend or his girlfriend, but go right ahead.

Romance/Sex: Generally--yes, I do enjoy shipping and everything that comes with it. However Adam has quite a few issues when it comes to relationships and physical affection, thanks to his last relationship and the current state of his body. He's not a huge flirt and not big on one night stands, either, but both can happen occasionally. He will only be dating women though, and in the rare case that a relationship forms, ADAM IS A LOYAL AND CLINGY BOYFRIEND. So no fucking around on the side then with anyone else unless he's really drunk or it's a threesome approved by all parties or something. Of course I'm willing to make exceptions for museboxes/memes/smut comms and so on, pretty much anything goes there.

Read your thoughts/emotions: Talk to me about it first.

Anything you don't want brought up to this character? Can't think of anything right off the bat.

Triggers: OOCly, I don't have any. ICly, Adam's not too fond of being insulted in regards to his augmentations, being called a killer/monster, or being called useless, especially when it comes to protecting people... though he will mostly just grit his teeth unless you're really pissing him off.

Anything else? I'm good. Ask me if you're unsure/if you need to know about something that isn't listed here.

I figured I should probably have one of these! So, for those characters that end up meeting Adam face to face—he has a Computer-Assisted Social Interaction Enhancer, aka CASIE. What this means? Let me copy a few sentences from the Deus Ex Wiki.

Provides its user with a direct monitor of behavior patterns and likely responses from conversational subjects. In real terms, this means the user can gain an insight into which conversational methods to employ in any situation. You can permanently ruin important conversations by saying the wrong thing, this aug gives you some inkling of what to pick. It can be upgraded with a pheromone emitting system that allows additional conversation options.

I'm going to simplify this for the sake of RP (in the videogame, some characters are also classfied as Alpha, Beta, or Omega personalities; then there's the persuasion meter...).

However, talking face to face with any character in a game environment (video too, though obviously he can't use pheromones there) would look like this to Adam if he were to activate his social enhancer:

CASIE SCREEN - It also means that the CASIE can pick up on involuntary physical reactions like pupil delation, heartrate, etc; making it easier for Adam to tell when your character is lying, for example. Other than that, the CASIE also analyzes voice volume, speech patterns, facial expressions, body language and environmental cues to gather data. If you're curious about what the CASIE looks like in action, you can check it out here (very mild spoilers).

Now, it's all up to you if you OOCly allow Adam to read your character better during conversations, so if you could fill out the following form, I'd really appreciate it!

Can Adam use his social enhancer on your character: (if you say no here, you don't have to fill out the other questions. Just lemme know! Feel free to point out if you think the CASIE might actually not work on your character because they're a robot, alien, or other supernatural being, too. 8)

If you picked yes, please provide THREE personality traits that accurately describe your character:
(this can be anything. In the above example, it's aggressive, excitable, insecure—but it can also be envious, defiant, emotional, pragmatic, confident, irrational, domineering, etc etc etc..... the list is endless. Just pick whatever describes your character best!)

If you picked yes, please describe your character's psychological profile in 2-4 sentences:
(Again, try to accurately and concisely describe how your character acts during a conversation. Two game examples so you know what I'm looking for:

"Slightly desperate at times. Feels misunderstood.
Has a tendency to think highly of himself and often needs to be brought down a notch. Tends to falsely inflate his own accomplishments. "

"Tends to dismiss other people and viewpoints, creating an emotional wall behind which he retreats. Views himself as an educator of lesser people. May be destabilized if his arguments are proven wrong. Can easily convert people to his cause. Is not used to resistance."

Can Adam use pheromones on your character to influence them:
(basically, if Adam does this, your character will be more inclined to agree with him. Simply yes or no! Or maybe?!)

And here's the form again for your copypasta pleasure:

Thank you!
