my h*llsing oc Do Nut Steel (he's in it for like 5 mins and all we get is that he's a smug asshole fanatic who likes to play the long game)
h*llsing canon characters he's most likely to interact with: enrico maxwell, alexander anderson. gdoc with image references here. brief descriptions of my interpretations of them (click to reveal)
maxwell is deeply fucked up by his parents abandoning him to an orphanage run by the secret catholic murder organization when he was 12. he knows he’s an illegitimate child and was abused verbally for it (probably physically too) and fully intends to find a way to become more powerful than anyone and use this power to get revenge/catharsis. he insists he doesn’t need family or friends but finds himself drawn to anderson because anderson shows him genuine kindness for the first time in his life (though that kindness is also predicated on essentially brainwashing him into becoming a fanatic who doesn’t value the lives of anyone he sees as a heretic). understands it as wanting to possess anderson’s power for himself, like a status symbol, and strives to force loyalty so anderson won’t abandon him. haughty and high-strung, easy to provoke.
he’s also trans ftm which would normally get him booted out of the church but his savage streak is strong enough at the age of 14 that the higher-ups are willing to look the other way since he’ll make a good leader. anderson will call him enrico until he's around 16yo.
anderson is the organization’s best murderer. deeply devout in the particular way that converts can be more devout than those raised in the faith. has a past of drug-dealing and extensive sexual activity, which maxwell uses to manipulate him into entering a relationship. (maxwell also uses the organization’s attitude of “we’re all consigned to limbo anyway for our deeds in the name of the church” against anderson.) cares for maxwell because he likes the challenge of getting this very stubborn kid to cooperate, sees his potential, and likes how quickly the kid takes to his teachings. serious, reserved/soft-spoken when not in the middle of slaughtering heretics and monsters, gentle despite being strong enough to break a man’s bones effortlessly.
(he ends up murdering adult maxwell when he feels like maxwell’s exploiting the power he’s been given for his own advantage rather than in service of the church’s mission, so…there’s also that. there's a 30-year timeskip after anderson kills maxwell then effectively commits suicide, and we see that makube has become leader of the organization.)
he's a bad, bad man
if you embarrass him or make him uncomfortable enough in an intimate situation he'll start throwing around "fag" or "faggot" - makube is the type to call a man a fag while said man is sucking his dick. NO HOMO!!!1
extremely into degradation and torture, both psychological and physical. if you're his subordinate then even better - he gets off on abusing his power, but he's usually discreet about such abuse.
won't hesitate to kill people personally, though he usually has someone else do it because it's not worth his time and it's more fun to be the one pulling the strings.
when he does get his hands dirty, he really goes for it - good thing he wears black. shame about those gloves though...at least they hide his fingerprints.
weapon of choice is a pump-action shotgun or fillet knives. he might also use ofuda or pistols.
his idea of helping someone manage an opioid addiction is to suggest they try cocaine. finger guns
he'll attempt to have sex with women but honestly he's something of a misogynist in addition to being a homo so it probably wouldn't be good for her, unless she's equally awful and manages to femdom him. might be okay with a flat-chested trans guy but hasn't tried it.
speaking of which - trigger warning for adult/minor sex (click to reveal)
when i write maxwell as trans he's more unhinged (a lot of which has to do with the leaders not excommunicating him so he ends up with an attitude of "i can do whatever i want as long as i say it's for god") and aggressively pursues anderson much earlier on. in one version of things it's possible that makube learns about 14yo maxwell’s sexual relationship with anderson and is blackmailing him into letting makube use him as well.
maxwell's relationship with anderson is ~theoretically~ consensual because maxwell initiated it but it’s still fucked up (age gap of 14 vs 40-something at least, teacher/student, catholics) and has to remain a secret or at least one of them will have their lives ruined. makube discovers the relationship because they slip up once, or are not as discreet as they think they are. he knows that maxwell will do almost anything to gain/keep power and uses this against the boy - he resents maxwell because the boy’s been chosen to become the next leader of their organization, passing him over, but is too calculating to make a public fuss about it. instead he coerces maxwell into sex in an attempt to humiliate him, though maxwell is messed up enough to find a way to think of it as something he chose to do with makube so it doesn’t consciously upset him as much later.
face and clothes
if you want to put him in civilian clothes, he's most likely to just wear black and white (button-down shirt, etc) but you can have fun if you want.
his eyes are an amber color but you can play with that some as long as you stay in the same ballpark. (e.g. brown is fine, but not blue or green)
you don't have to include the cross on the gloves.
the cross is silver by default, though it can be any color and size. the style of the rope/chain doesn't matter.
feel free to make him look as run-down as you want. he probably gets ten hours of sleep a week, if that, not to mention all the drugs.
he's not especially hairy - there's some hair on his chest and a happy trail but otherwise he's pretty average.
if depicting him in sexual/gory situations: he's circumcised, which raises the question of when/why he joined the church and became a murder priest. whether he's giver or receiver both noncon and extreme gore are fine. bonus points if vomit is included. no scat or inflation or diapers please.
