Outfit: Special Lens | Annaki Drive Tee | White Norimaki 750s
Home: Flounder Heights (resides with Ash and Terra)
Family: Octa (aunt), Ash (non-blood uncle), Octa’s elder sister (mother), Terra (non-blood cousin)
History: As a male Octoling in the Octoling society, Vesade holds no ranking nor social standing compared to females. As a result, he was unable to interact with his fellow Octolings as his mother rarely took him out. While being kept away from the public eye, he was forced to train by his mother. At one point he wanted to main the Octoshot like his mother, but was denied and instead given a Splatterscope, with his mother’s excuse being he has no place in the battlefield. This isolation would lead to him having a rather cynical approach towards his culture as a whole.
When Vesade grew to his late teens, his mother sent him away to Inkopolis Square. The reason remains unknown, but Vesade believes she did it for her sake, not his. He searched for his aunt, Octa Crimon, but upon arriving to her address given by his mother, he discovered Octa had left long ago after a divorce, leaving Ash and Terra to be the only residents. He was given a place to stay until he finds his own calling, much to Terra’s chagrin. However, Vesade quickly realizes a dark secret harboring within his aunt’s former family and ultimately decides to investigate to find out why his aunt left…
Personality: Don’t be fooled by his pretty looks first off. He gets easily mistaken for being a girl multiple occasions. Behind him lies a rather scathing, coarse personality. Due to his upbringing as a male Octoling, Vesade views the world in such a cynical behavior and treats strangers rudely with insults and harsh remarks. His favorite target is Terra, who absolutely abhors him and the feeling’s mutual. He also enjoys manipulating Gale a lot, though mainly does it as he’s uncomfortable with the younger boy’s kindness and wants to drive him off.
Despite this, deep down Vesade is rather selfless as he shows no praise nor reflection to himself. He has a difficult time overcoming his own culture that he cannot even pick up a different weapon whilst being in Inkopolis Square. He can be respectful to those who prove themselves, such as Ash who is suffering from gossip and even Blue Raines as a respectable fighter despite the Inkling being against Octolings.
Hope isn’t lost however as when Gale grew older, he still pursues his affections for Vesade. Though the Octoling dismisses them, he slowly begins to see the good inside him as he breaks away from his Octoling ties. Vesade has yet to answer Gale’s question and the same goes for the young boy, who has yet to give his question.
- Vesade’s favorite food is hamburgers! Apparently they never existed in Octo Canyon.
- Vesade has a secret stash of… *ahem* sins. Thank goodness Ash isn’t that strict of a guardian!
- Often being mistaken as a girl gets on Vesade’s nerves A LOT. Get ready for more scathing insults.
- “Vesade” is a combination of Finnish words that relate to water.
- Vesade is moreso designed to be the opposite of Octa. Totally not shy and definitely a prick!
- His eyes were originally pink, but changed to green to match Octa’s and Terra’s eye color.
