garrett from quest for camelot
Name: Garrett Lucius Beaumain
Meaning: Garrett - variant of English name Gerard from Germanic elements 'ger' meaning 'spear' and hard meaning 'brave'
Lucius - Roman name derived from Latin word 'lux' meaning 'light'
Beaumain - unknown, possibly related to French surname Beauman, an occupational surname for archers
Date of birth: 4 January 1989
Hair color: Brown
Hair style: Curly, though as it gets longer it gets straighter under its own weight. Length depends, as he's gone through phases of not cutting it at all and letting it do what it wants and of keeping it shorn fairly short. Usually long enough to just curl around his ears.
Eye color: Brown
Build: Solid. Slightly more muscle definition in shoulders and arms than legs, but he regularly exercises both.
Gender: Cis male
Style: Whatever's comfortable. He can't see what he's wearing and doesn't really give a damn about what other people make of his outfits. Most of his things are neutral: white, black, greys, and browns.
Markings: Several moles, most notably the one above his lip and one on his right shoulder. Scarring on head, covered by hair.
Body language: Closed-off and somewhat aggressive
Birthplace: Elias Island, Maine
Current residence: Cottage on the northeast edges of Tulgey Wood
Current job: Self-employed transcriber
Dream job: It used to be a police officer, but he's too pessimistic to believe he can do much more than what he's doing now.
Mode of transportation: Walking. Will avoid public transit unless absolutely necessary.
Languages: English, some German
Sexuality: Grey-biromantic bisexual
Relationship status: Single
Notable past relationships: A couple long-distance relationships with people he met online, but they never got past that
Relationship style: He hasn't given that much thought to his ideal relationship, but ultimately it would have to be someone who'd both respect his boundaries and independence and someone who wouldn't be afraid to push him when necessary. He doesn't need or want someone to depend on, but having someone who'd lend emotional support and basically remind him that he's worthy of giving and receiving love (and that other people deserve understanding and respect in return) would go a long way. Anyone too mothering or passive wouldn't be a good fit in the end.
Love language: Acts of Service (giving), Words of Affirmation (receiving)
Family: Both parents are deceased.
Other notable relationships: Kristoff Bjorgman (friend), Lysander Boggens (friend)
Likes: Coffee, cinnamon, pepper, lemon
Coffee: Will have it basically any way, but defaults to black with a little cream and two sugars
Alcohol: Not much of a drinker at all, but does like a glass of red wine
Type of drunk: More willing and eager to talk with people and a little looser, if not quite happier
Habits: Almost always cooks for himself. He gets large deliveries of groceries to his house but will occasionally foray to the market for a few, simple ingredients.

The ISTJ personality type is thought to be the most abundant, making up around 13% of the population. Their defining characteristics of integrity, practical logic and tireless dedication to duty make ISTJs a vital core to many families, as well as organizations that uphold traditions, rules and standards, such as law offices, regulatory bodies and military. People with the ISTJ personality type enjoy taking responsibility for their actions, and take pride in the work they do – when working towards a goal, ISTJs hold back none of their time and energy completing each relevant task with accuracy and patience.
ISTJs don’t make many assumptions, preferring instead to analyze their surroundings, check their facts and arrive at practical courses of action. ISTJ personalities are no-nonsense, and when they’ve made a decision, they will relay the facts necessary to achieve their goal, expecting others to grasp the situation immediately and take action. ISTJs have little tolerance for indecisiveness, but lose patience even more quickly if their chosen course is challenged with impractical theories, especially if they ignore key details – if challenges becomes time-consuming debates, ISTJs can become noticeably angry as deadlines tick nearer.
When ISTJs say they are going to get something done, they do it, meeting their obligations no matter the personal cost, and they are baffled by people who don’t hold their own word in the same respect. Combining laziness and dishonesty is the quickest way to get on ISTJs’ bad side. Consequently, people with the ISTJ personality type often prefer to work alone, or at least have their authority clearly established by hierarchy, where they can set and achieve their goals without debate or worry over others' reliability.
ISTJs have sharp, fact-based minds, and prefer autonomy and self-sufficiency to reliance on someone or something. Dependency on others is often seen by ISTJs as a weakness, and their passion for duty, dependability and impeccable personal integrity forbid falling into such a trap. This sense of personal integrity is core to ISTJs, and goes beyond their own minds – ISTJ personalities adhere to established rules and guidelines regardless of cost, reporting their own mistakes and telling the truth even when the consequences for doing so could be disastrous. To ISTJs, honesty is far more important than emotional considerations, and their blunt approach leaves others with the false impression that ISTJs are cold, or even robotic. People with this type may struggle to express emotion or affection outwardly, but the suggestion that they don’t feel, or worse have no personality at all, is deeply hurtful.
ISTJs’ dedication is an excellent quality, allowing them to accomplish much, but it is also a core weakness that less scrupulous individuals take advantage of. ISTJs seek stability and security, considering it their duty to maintain a smooth operation, and they may find that their coworkers and significant others shift their responsibilities onto them, knowing that they will always take up the slack. ISTJs tend to keep their opinions to themselves and let the facts do the talking, but it can be a long time before observable evidence tells the whole story.
ISTJs need to remember to take care of themselves – their stubborn dedication to stability and efficiency can compromise those goals in the long term as others lean ever-harder on them, creating an emotional strain that can go unexpressed for years, only finally coming out after it’s too late to fix. If they can find coworkers and spouses who genuinely appreciate and complement their qualities, who enjoy the brightness, clarity and dependability that they offer, ISTJs will find that their stabilizing role is a tremendously satisfying one, knowing that they are part of a system that works.

zodiac sun sign
In love, they feel happy and high on emotion. They tend to be jealous, but they remain faithful. Capricorn Sun Signs like to be married. Once they find that special someone, they tend not to let go and so, many will only marry once. They feel that they won't get too many chances at love. They adore taking care of their partner and family, although they must feel needed and appreciated. This Sign understands the ups and downs in a relationship better than most, and they are not easily disheartened when things are not going smoothly.
Profound thinkers, they explore all their options before taking action. They have excellent memories and love to learn. Rational, clearheaded and logical, they can concentrate very well. Despite a natural skepticism, they are often intrigued with the occult. Capricorns will carefully scope out the land at a social event before deciding how to interact with the group. They feel everyone is always making judgments about them (like they do about others), so they feel the need to check everything out before they relax. Making friends isn't easy for them, but those they do get their intense loyalty.
Capricorn Sun Signs are creative, but they prefer practical applications like architecture, decorating, commercial art and fine art.
On the negative side, Capricorn Sun Sign may be too reserved and conservative. They may lack a sense of humor and be excessively pessimistic. If they fail, they may become unhappy or melancholy. This can lead to depression. Self-centeredness may be a problem, and they may not interact well with others, even in close relationships. They may feel left out, that people don't like them, or they may feel taken advantage of. They can also make a bitter enemy. On the positive side, they're shrewd, responsible, and put others before themselves. They can be witty and capricious at times and are

zodiac moon sign
The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces in you an extremely strong inner drive and a keen sense of your own importance as an individual. A certain rigid inner pride keeps your self-respect always at a high level. Early on, temperament may be a problem, but as you mature cooperation is learned and a judicial and rather stern nature rules the personality. A very reserved individual, you often express yourself in quiet ways, always remaining perfectly capable of communicating disapproval without saying even a word. Most people think of you as a very reasonable person and in may ways you are. It is very difficult, however, to ever persuade you that you are wrong because of a highly inflexible core within. Often you may use the tactic of appearing not to understand the other person's point of view, even when it is quite clear to you. You are very honorable, loyal, and devoted, with a keen sense of the sobriety of life, and of your duty as a part of it. Right or wrong, you hold to your first impressions of people, especially if those first impressions were not good. You are a very understanding of people and their problems, and while you usually can remain very much detached, you are a good listener and provide sound advice. Emotions never seem to interfere with your reasoning power.

Gryffindors are marked by their steadfast intuitive morality. While Gryffindors are just as capable of looking at things logically and weighing the consequences of different courses of action, they will feel the most at peace with themselves when acting in accordance with their gut morality. Like all individual belief systems, Gryffindors’ vary widely in content and intensity, giving us a wide variety of systems (strong political stances, devotion to a particular religion, extreme commitment to a particular branch of rights) so different Gryffindors can look very different.
One of the Gryffindor Primary’s greatest strengths is their ability to make a decision, and then go out and do their damndest to make a difference. They are willing to sacrifice their safety, social harmony, and a certain amount of logic to do what they feel is right. They can create great change in the world because they are willing to make difficult decisions and then commit fully to that decision, even at the expense of things most other people would not be willing to sacrifice. Gryffindor Primaries are the type to leave everything and travel halfway across the world if that’s what they feel is necessary. They are the type to work long days and into the night, even while conscious of the hit their relationships with family members and friends might take, because their work is important. It matters in a way that smaller things, even when those things seem important in the moment, don’t. They are one of the Houses most comfortable, as a whole, with being lone wolves, with finding meaning in martyrdom, and with defying even the people they love most, if something is important enough.
However, though a Gryffindor can and will work alone, there is a special strength brought out when they’re part of a team. They can be charismatic and passionate, dedicated and on task, excellent at reminding people what it is they are working towards and how important it is. Their drive can help breathe life into a group on the verge of burnout.
Another facet of Gryffindor is that while they often have a gut response to what is right, what to do about it is a little harder. This of course ties into the Secondary. A Hufflepuff Secondary might do their good through patience, service, or support. In all of these, however, there is going to be doubt. Doing right and doing well is imperative to the Gryffindor Primary–but that certainty and that need to act doesn’t necessarily come with a how-to guide attached.
Many Gryffindors compulsively self-analyze and re-check what they are doing and believing, to make sure it still rings true– when this self-questioning turns to despairing self-doubt instead, this is called “stripping”. But even an unstripped Gryffindor has to check new circumstances, questions, and paths against what they feel. They can be as logical and meditative about it as some Ravenclaw Primary tackling a new facet of their morality; but at the end of the day a Gryffindor will trust their gut, once they manage to understand what it is saying. When jostled from their steady footing, a Gryffindor can lose faith not in right and wrong, but in their ability to know what is right and wrong. Their internal compass, the basis for their understanding, sense of purpose, and even sense of worth, will feel broken and untrustworthy. But that uncertainty doesn’t make knowing and acting on what’s right and what’s wrong any less important. From the outside, Stripped Gryffindors often look more grounded, stable, and calm than your classic Gryffindor Primary. They’re more likely to let things they cannot fix just pass them by. If they charge, it is not often, and only for something so important that they're able to overcome this doubt.
But for the Gryffindor, Stripping is not a steadying act, no matter how it seems to outward observers. Gryffindor is a house of certainty. Gryffindor is a house of right and wrong, and of those truths requiring action. When a Gryffindor is Stripped, their sense of right and wrong is yanked out of their gut. They lose the certainty of their moral compass. Being Stripped is something you can survive, live with, and even thrive within. Stripping can feel practical or necessary or it can feel forced; but at the core of being Stripped is a sense of loss. Even if the Gryffindor is sure that the world is an inherently unjust place, unsaveable and destined to never be understood, they are still a Gryffindor. Some part of them is going to always prefer and miss a world where they knew what they were supposed to be doing.
A Stripped Gryffindor might try to construct themselves a functioning system from the actions and instincts that drove them before their traumas. They might also latch onto a community, or family, and then work under a loyalist-style morality of people-first. They might also curl up and close in on themselves. They might go out and keep fighting the good fight, keep going through the braveries and charges they used to intuit heart and soul, but now with a weary doubt that any of it will actually be right or worthwhile. In the act of choosing a new system, Stripped Gryffindors often look like Ravenclaw Primaries– but where it would take new evidence and careful debate to move a Ravenclaw Primary from a system they’ve chosen, a Gryffindor is more likely to move due to a sudden insight or gut intuition– an uncontrived emotional response; a return to trusting their own heart.
Gryffindors do not know the definitions of good and evil any more accurately than any other House– more importantly, most Gryffindors know they don’t know any more than anyone else. But inherent fallibility doesn’t mean you should sit on your heels and not try the best you can. Gryffindor is not about knowing– it’s about knowing that the best way to know is to trust yourself and your gut. It’s the bravery to try and it’s knowing that trying matters. It’s about trusting yourself even if the whole world is against you. At the end of the day, the most important thing is staying true to this thing inside you and standing tall.
Where dwell the brave at heart.
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.”

Hufflepuff Secondaries invest themselves into their world with service and support. When things turn out well for a Hufflepuff it often comes as a result of those old investments culminating and giving back. Old debts might raise their head in a time of need. Communities the Hufflepuff has supported or built might marshal to their aid without even being asked. Their reputation might precede them, allowing them trust or the allowances that they need.
Often overlooked, Hufflepuff Secondaries are handed secrets, access, or tasks of monumental importance because they have developed a reputation that they can be trusted with them. This reputation has been earned through a slow and steady process of hard work and actually being that reliable that the Hufflepuff will have built up over years. This is what makes a Hufflepuff: they show up. They do the work, often for no obvious gain except for the satisfaction of a job well done. This is the source of their power, and it is slowly gathered, not obvious to look at, and rarely spent. Where Gryffindors charge and Slytherins transform, the Hufflepuff seems inconsequential and harmless until the moment when they rise up and call on all their debts, secrets, and trust.
Hufflepuff Secondaries are twofold in a way that is more striking than any of the other houses. Kindness and hard work are both stereotypes of the House– but you can have grumpy, bitter Hufflepuff secondaries just as easily as you can have cheerful social butterflies who never pay a bill on time. Both of these traits–niceness and toil–tie back to a sense of dedication. Hufflepuffs mean it. Whatever they are doing– loving or lying or laboring– they invest in it. Doing things partway is unsettling and ineffective. Where Slytherin draws strength from their quick wits, Gryffindor their shining integrity of intent, and Ravenclaw their pools of skills and knowledge, Hufflepuffs have an integrity of effort. Hard work is what pays off in the end.
But because what people choose to dedicate themselves to can vary so widely, the performance and seeming of the Hufflepuff Secondary can vary widely as well. They don’t have to be dedicated to every thing in their lives, just the things that are important. For some people that’s friendships, lovers, community– this is where you get the community builder. For other Hufflepuffs, they love their job, their hobby, or their cause. It is a non-personable sphere where they apply their focus, dedication, and investment. The Hufflepuff Secondary gets their power from steadiness and consistency and hard-work no matter what it is they’re building. They might use that to build a community, but also might use it to tirelessly (or at least ceaselessly) devote themselves to school or their work and gain a valuable reputation as an honest, hard worker. This might attract people to them and encourage a community to form around and rely on them, but that’s not the active community building that Hufflepuff is more stereotyped as. That reputation for active community building comes from a place of being hard-working specifically in friendships, as mentioned above. If their friendships are where they invest their efforts, then they caretake, they give their time, they make you cookies, they bring you soup and take care of you when you’re sick, and they support you reliably. This is what makes a Hufflepuff Secondary so well known for being a good friend.
But not all Hufflepuffs do it that way. You can also have a Hufflepuff who only has one or two friends because they devote all of their time to studying to become, say, the best nurse there’s ever been. That Hufflepuff can be constantly irritated by how the rest of the people around them don’t work as hard as they do because if they did, then everyone would get more done and the world would be generally better off. They can be bitter and short with people, but still be working, without hypocrisy, to the benefit of the world. Nice is not required– reliable is.
Rather than an integrity of performance, there is an integrity of method with Hufflepuffs. Things must be earned. Interactions and achievements must be fair. Kindness and service describe one possible extreme of the Hufflepuff secondary, but stubbornness, hard work, and dedication make up the true backbone of this House. While they are
Where Gryffindors’ strengths require a genuineness of the charge, Hufflepuffs require a genuineness too. They must believe in the work they put their mind to. This holds true when that work is misdirection, or empathy, or their profession. A half-hearted Hufflepuff is not just unmoored and existential, but ineffective. Hufflepuffs have a tendency to become the thing the situation needs. Where a Gryffindor Secondary will step on toes in social situations, unwilling to compromise for the sake of social harmony, a Hufflepuff who invests most in groups will comfortably shape themselves to best keep the peace and smooth things over. (A Hufflepuff who is invested in their work, rather than people, is as likely as a Gryffindor to step on toes– they shape themselves with other priorities in mind).
This ability to shift, while often completely emotionally genuine in the moment, can look suspiciously similar to the Slytherin traits of adaptability and reactivity. But where Slytherins can look like most things, Hufflepuffs can be most things. This can be used to help and support others by becoming what they need in that moment, to make drudge work enjoyable by deciding it’s fun, or even for deceit. Hufflepuff secondaries lie best by believing the lie, even if only for that moment.
Hufflepuff Secondaries tend to keep an impressive reserve of power in people– often through community building and generosity, or hard work and a reputation for reliability. Whether or not they are friendly, Hufflepuff Secondaries can often be the bastion or cornerstone of their community. While they can be the beating hearts of social groups, with dozens of powerful favors and secrets under their hat, they can also be the quiet, dedicated, nose-to-the-grindstone misanthrope in the corner. Hufflepuff’s power is not being liked–it is being trusted, which is something different altogether.
Where they are just and loyal.
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil”

Fours enjoy delving deeply into their life and love sharing profound experiences with others. Many actively invite ritual as a way of creating meaning in their lives. Their search for inspiration, symbolism and meaning may create a strong relationship with artistic expression or appreciation of the arts. When Fours are engaged with mundane or uninspiring tasks, they are likely to feel disenchanted and frustrated.
The Four type is characterized by a sense of lack and envy, focused on and longing for what is missing either within themselves or in their lives. Fours are very adept at internalizing and believing negative information about themselves. They are very likely to discard positive data. This internalization of critical information can make Fours highly reactive to anything that seems to imply something negative about them. Fours’ personal experiences and feelings may bias their view of the facts, leading to subjective rather than objective decision-making. They tend to trust their own feelings and experiences more than anything else. Fours are very introspective and tend to be dissatisfied with the ordinary, everyday reality. They may become broody in the thinking process and get lost in negative thought-patterns that erode their self-esteem, making them long to be understood.
The intimate variant is an emotionally sensitive Four who is deeply connected to their suffering.
