πŸ“· Back-Tagging
Yes! And if there's something you'd like me to backtag, just let me know. I tend to prioritize new threads once old threads have reached Benefactor rewards length.
πŸ“· Thread-Hopping
EVEN MORE YES. And if you'd like me not to, again, let me know here or on Plurk!
πŸ“· Comments in the Subject Line
I don't have a problem with it, though if we start holding a whole conversation I'll usually taper off and continue it on Plurk or Discord.
πŸ“· Fourth Wall Breakage
Mmmmm nah, not for Prompto.
πŸ“· Triggers/Squicks
No triggers, but incest squicks me out a lot, so if that's likely to come up, I'd just appreciate a heads up. If your character tends to be racist/sexist/homophobic/anything along those lines, I'd also like to know that ahead of time so I can gird my loins. None of this means you can't play with me! It's just nice to know what I'm getting into.
πŸ“· Anything Else?
If you want to avoid FFXV spoilers... it'll be tough, but I'll do my best either not to include them in tags with you or to label them in big group discussions.
πŸ“· Hugging
Give him all the hugs!
πŸ“· Kissing
If it's not on the lips, go for it. ON the lips, let me know first so I can titter like a blushing schoolgirl and give my blessing!
πŸ“· Flirting
πŸ“· Fighting
Yyyyes, but I don't like writing fight threads step-by-step so get in touch with me so we can work it out.
πŸ“· Injuring
Yes, but let's work out details in advance!
πŸ“· Killing
You know where to find me, waggles eyebrows.
πŸ“· Telepathy
Sure! He has no mental shields or anything and should be a fairly easy read. Let me know if you need more introspection in my tags.
πŸ“· Magic
Of course, though whether or not I'll want to talk it over first depends on the magic's effect.
πŸ“· Triggers
Depending on his canonpoint/memory regains, Prompto may be triggered by human experimentation and/or monster transformation. Those same things might come up in threads with him as well as child neglect, child soldiers, body negativity, and, potentially, self-harm.
πŸ“· Anything Else?
Prompto might smack your character's ass. It's just this thing he does sometimes. Don't worry about it.

History: Prompto's History on the Final Fantasy Wikia

'I mean, when you look at me, you wouldn't think that I'm anything but a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky joker. But that isn't the real me. Behind all the quips and laughs, I'm a mess of hang-ups.'

Prompto's obviously FFXV's cheerful comic relief character from the get-go. He's goofy, clumsy, whiny, doesn't know what to do with himself during the game's heavy moments, chipper to a fault, exaggeratedly reactive, sometimes annoying, and has hair like a chocobo's butt. He's the quintessential sidekick: the party's mood-maker, a nice guy ready with a laugh whenever it's needed, even at his own expense.

But all of this is the persona Prompto constructed so that he could have and keep friends. Beneath what he apparently thinks is a convincing front of jokes and good times, he hosts an inferiority complex the size of the sun, a deep-seated fear that his friends will leave him, and a need to give the people what they want. He's not naturally good with social interaction. He's uncertain of himself and has trouble relating to others. And a huge part of that was growing up lonely, as his adoptive parents were hardly home in his childhood, leaving an emotional chasm he was too awkward to know how to fill. Loneliness has left him terrified that the 'real him' wouldn't be worth anyone's time, that he's meant to live with that hole forever.

Once given the impetus to fill it, though--that is, a letter from the Oracle, so it wasn't even a resolution of his own making--he goes all-out. Sheer bloody dedication to the idea of being Prince Noctis's friend sees him through a multi-year transformation. He refashions himself from shy, stodgy loner to an affectionate loudmouth who can't sit still, who maintains a well-regulated diet and exercise regimen though he's long since reached his (admittedly shallow) goal. And that goes to show that Prompto's determination, for all his complaining, is never to be underestimated--particularly when it comes to his friends.

Running deeper than his insecurity and more true than his charming goofball persona is a streak of loyalty and compassion greater than Prompto himself understands. He's always the first to a downed friend's side and the quickest to notice something's wrong. He goes out of his way for children and injured animals--an affinity, perhaps, for those as weak as he perceives himself to be. A lifetime of observing others and adjusting his presentation to match the mood lets him see when his friends are hurting, and his own lack of pride--what, after all, does a loser like him have to be proud of?--lets him offer help so easily, so naturally, his prouder, more macho friends don't feel the sting. Everything Prompto does, he does to earn his place among the people he's lucky enough to call friends. Everything he does, he does to help.

Because of that, he lacks a certain kind of initiative on his own. His greatest struggle is to figure out what he wants, not what the people around him want of him. Before he figures that out, he's always looking to others for guidance and hiding behind them when he believes a situation beyond his ability--which happens real darn often. But once he realizes all he wants is to be with the others whether or not he 'deserves' that place--when he sets out to take that spot for himself with all the honesty and courage he has--he shows he has the resolve to stand on his own.

His whole life, Prompto's wrestled with the idea that he doesn't belong. For twenty years, he hid the barcode on his wrist despite not knowing what it meant beyond 'you're not one of them.' He knew he was from the enemy empire. He knew he was awkward, ungainly, without anything to offer that would make him worth befriending. But he knew he wanted friends more than anything. And when he found an opportunity to have them, he did everything he could not only to keep them, but to keep them well. He wants his friends to be happy. He'll do whatever it takes to make it so.

When the chips are down, when everything is falling apart around them, it's wimpy, awkward, bad-jokes Prompto who steps up to fill the cracks, to ease the burdens of those around him. It's Prompto who sticks up for Ignis's right to choose his destiny after an attack leaves him blind. It's Prompto who jokes with Noctis and forgives him as no one else ever does, rather than piling guilt and responsibility upon him.

He is that fun-loving, happy-go-lucky joker, here to lighten the mood. He's also that mess of insecurities, constantly groping for validation, begging the world for a reason to exist. But Prompto's capable of growth beyond expectation, most of all his own.

There's nothing he won't become to stand at his friends' side.

Abilities: Prompto doesn't have any magical powers of his own. Any special techniques he performs in FFXV can be attributed in part to borrowing Noctis's magic, as a member of his party.

- Photography: Prompto knows his way around a digital camera and its many options and settings. He's also fearless when it comes to getting that perfect shot and has taken selfies and action shots mid-battle.
- Firearms/combat: The game never explains where or when Prompto learned how to shoot, but he can use any firearm the game throws at him, including his default handguns, sniper rifles, machine guns, bazookas, and heavy Niflheim machinery. He's pulled off some ridiculous trick shots in-game. He's also capable of assassin-style stealth kills.
- Athleticism: Prompto's the fastest character in Noctis's party and has been running every day since childhood. What he lacks in strength and staying power, he makes up for with speed and agility.
- Machinery: He has a knack for picking up enemy tech and intuiting how to use it. It's not his greatest skill, but useful in a pinch.

Strengths: Loyal - Energetic - Supportive - Sensitive - Humble
Weaknesses: Whiny - Insecure - Dependent - Fearful - Bungling

God/Shinki: Shinki
Why?: From his very conception, Prompto was made to serve others. He was created as a tiny cog in a daemon-clone army; in his childhood, he re-shaped his entire body and personality in order to fulfill Lunafreya Nox Fleuret's request that he stand by Prince Noctis's side; and as an adult, he's always deferring to the other members of his party, looking to them for guidance and then responding as he thinks thinks they need. Putting him in a position of leadership and responsibility for shinki would stress him the hell out, but he's a great support.
Cause Of Death: After ten long years of darkness, thirty-year-old Prompto Argentum went down fighting daemons on the steps of Insomnia's ruined Citadel to buy time for Noctis Lucis Caelum CXIV to call on his ancestors' power to eradicate the Starscourge from Eos once and for all. While Prompto and his two brothers-in-arms were brave and skilled, the sheer number of monsters overwhelmed them, and they died just as dawn broke over the Kingdom of Lucis for the first time in a decade.
Vessel: Lion Heart handgun: A large pistol with a streak of blue along the top.
Name Location: Inside of his right wrist
Power: Starshine: Prompto can gather and then release light to blind foes, light dark places, and/or weaken ayakashi or other daemon-like, spiritually impure presences. A power based on Starshell, one of his in-game techniques, but which is drawn from his shinki abilities instead of Noctis's magic.

Character Name: Prompto Argentum
Character Account: [personal profile] photoshooter
Character Canon: Final Fantasy XV
Character History: Final Fantasy XV Spoilers Ahoy!

Prompto's earliest days are shrouded in mystery: What we know is that he was bred and branded to become a Magitek Trooper, one of the Niflheim Empire's ill-understood, daemon-powered soldiers. How he came to Niflheim's last standing opponent, the Kingdom of Lucis, is unknown, but he was taken in and raised by the Argentum family. Evidently, his parents were often out of town, and Prompto grew up a loner both at home and in school, where he had trouble connecting to others. He was also a heavyset child, which couldn't have helped. To protect the secret of his origins, he kept to himself and his camera, plodding through life without much to look forward to besides photographing cute animals around the city.

One cute animal turned his life around. Prompto found an injured puppy in front of his house one day, brought her in, and took care of her for a time, tending her wounds and making sure she was clean and fed. The dog turned out to belong to one Lunafreya Nox Fleuret, Oracle of Tenebrae and good friend of Lucis's prince, Noctis Lucis Caelum. When the dog returned to Lunafreya, she wrote a letter thanking Prompto for his assistance, assuming he was a friend of Noct's.

Prompto took the letter as a directive to become friends with Noct, who attended his elementary school. His first attempt to connect with the young prince ended in disaster, and an offhand remark of Noct's prompted Prompto to lose weight before he tried befriending Noct again. He spent the next few years working out and learning how better to talk to people until the beginning of high school, when, assuming Noctis wouldn't remember him, he pretended they'd never met and quickly squeezed himself into Noct's life.

Five years of best friendship later, Noct asks his advisor, his bodyguard, and Prompto to accompany him on a road trip out of the country to marry Lunafreya, as was stipulated in a peace treaty Noct's father was about to sign with Niflheim. Tragedy cuts their mostly fun almost-vacation horrifically short, when, before they even arrive in Altissia, the Niflheim Empire attacks and defeats the capital of Lucis, killing King Regis.

Prompto remains beside Noctis through their continuing trials as fugitives and rebels against the Empire, enduring not only his own hardships as the Empire continues to hunt them, but Noct's and the others' reactions to the losses that dog their party. He tries to shore his friends up and lighten the mood as much as he can, but it's a long, hard road of monster-hunting for money and fighting a losing battle against the Empire.

At the utter nadir of their spirits, the team is ambushed on a train by an Ardyn who can take others' forms. In the confusion Noctis attacks Prompto and knocks him off the train. For the next couple chapters, Ardyn holds Prompto captive so he can lure Noctis to the capital of Niflheim.

Once rescued, Prompto forgives Noct and then reveals his origins to the party. Their immediate acceptance despite knowing he was intended to be one of their enemies moved him deeply and cemented his place in their brotherhood. Shortly after, Noctis was absorbed into a magic crystal, leaving the rest of the party on their own for ten years.

More happens after that, but I think I may make Prompto's canon point pre-rescue, so that doesn't matter so much.

Character Personality: A few fans around Tumblr have been calling Prompto things like "sunshine child" and "my pure cinnamon roll son," and it's easy to see why. Even at a glance, Prompto maintains a playful, bouncy air in motion. He's constantly looking around, shifting his weight, constantly broadcasting his emotional shifts through expression, posture, and voice. He's one of the quickest of the FFXV party members to complain but also the quickest to joke, laugh, or sing. He brightens around pretty girls and goes nuts over puppies and chocobos and will snap a photo of anything--anytime.

He's also kind, desperately loyal, and deeply insecure due to his lonely childhood years and the psychological weight of hiding his origins--Magitek Troopers are branded with a bar code, so he had a physical mark to mask. Prompto calls the party members the only friends he's ever had, and shows his devotion to them by insisting they stay together even when, for one reason or another, they're bringing down the team; by always supporting them when they're down and out; and by simply saying it, always, through thought and action. Prompto is the result of a boy who literally reshaped himself because a girl he didn't know wrote him a nice letter implying he should be friends with the class celebrity. There's nothing he won't throw to the winds for his friends, particularly Noct.

Of course, he's also dorky and awkward. He talks a lot--constantly, really--and often says things most of the party knows better than to voice aloud. There's never any disguising what he's feeling, so he doesn't even try: If he's scared, he says so, and if someone in the party's going to cry, it's probably Prompto. He whines. He makes mistakes. He makes a lot of mistakes. He always means well, but, as he readily admits himself, he's not strong, smart, doesn't really know how to take care of himself, and often just gets in the way. In tense situations or when meeting new people, he usually defers to the other members of the party. He's clumsy with girls and doesn't seem to realize just how transparent he is.

But he goes out of his way for children and animal and always seems to know exactly what it is Noct needs emotionally, whether that's a break, a clap on the back, or just a chance to be a normal guy. He supports Ignis when, blinded, he insists on continuing to travel with the team. He's excited to meet Noct's fiancée for the first time. He pushes on bravely even when he knows he's the weakest, even when he's sure he's about to be left behind.

All he really wants is to earn his place. To be there for his friends. To walk tall beside them.
