Â«CastielÂ» The Angel of Solitude and Tears.
Â» Username: Castiel
Â» Real name: Ethan Drake
Â» Age: 19
Â» Gender: Male
Â» Height: 5'8"
Â» Faceclaim: (Ethan Drake, Kouichi Sakakibara, Another)
Â» About: Ethan was a spoiled child, growing up in a privileged household and never really having to worry about fending completely for himself. There was always somebody there for him to lean on and help him along the way, whether it be his parents or friends. He never truly appreciated the things he had in life until he began playing Sword Art Online and was trapped within the game, locked away from his sheltered outside world and thrown into one where he was completely on his own.
Although spoiled, Ethan was raised to be a kind and considerate person. His parents made sure he was sent to good schools and could pursue his ambitions, several of which included singing, acting and dancing. He was studying at his college to become a mechanical engineer as well, so he was quite the diverse individual. His diversity also was evident in his immediate family: his father is black, mother white, his older sister has a disability and he himself is gay. So he grew to be an accepting person who made sure to always avoid bigotry.
The first things most people notice about Ethan is his spontaneity, humor and optimism. He tends to think of the cup being half-full rather than half-empty, although this proves to be difficult sometimes in SAO especially when he's not doing so well. Nevertheless, he will most likely try to grab onto some sort of positivity or hope in order to maintain his sanity. Also, he is not above goofing off, and thus he may come off as immature occasionally although this isn't necessarily the case.
Ethan is fiercely loyal to his friends and family and will do everything in his power to ensure their safety, including sacrificing his own life for a loved one.
Having been sent to good schools by his parents as well as being gifted with natural intellect, Ethan is a cunning individual who can think through tough situations quickly, making him a talented strategist in the SAO world.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder:
Ethan was diagnosed with ADHD early in his life, OCD developing as a result of some of his ADHD symptoms. He finds it difficult to stay still without anything to do, and staying focused can prove itself hard as well. Clutter and unsanitary conditions only further cloud his mind, so he makes sure to keep himself and his environment both clean and organized (sometimes to obsessive extremes.) He takes daily medications for his mental disorders, but once trapped in SAO the drugs' effects on his mind completely left his system after only a week or so. Thus he is learning to cope with his disorders while unmedicated, which is generally a new frontier for him.
While loyal to those he holds dear to his heart, if you manage to break Ethan's trust then you will sorely regret it. He is not above holding grudges and even acting out of vengeance in extreme cases.
As a theatre kid, Ethan is naturally loud and dramatic with his reactions. He usually only shows his theatrical tendencies when around those he's comfortable with, though.

Story Thus Far (optional)
Â» Upon learning of his imprisonment within SAO, Ethan broke down emotionally and mentally. He secluded himself from the rest of the virtual world, hiding away in motel rooms and street performing to earn money for basic needs. It wasn't until a few weeks later did he learn of a quest that earned you an animal companion...something that was enticing and hopeful enough to bring "Castiel" out of his funk.
