    How did you find DEFIANCE? Through the Efed Podcast Discord. I actually heard about DEFIANCE years ago through Josh in SHOOT Project.

    Are you willing to write matches?
    Yes.

    Writing Sample
    Here's the thing. What we want here in DEFIANCE is for you to sell us on you as a handler. How you do that is up to you. Link us to an old segment. Write a new one. Link to a match you wrote. Just convince us that you want to be here and that you don't stray away from the actual work.
    This is the most important part of your application.


    Sample RP # 1: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...d8EnzzkD8/edit
    This is my latest piece from Arthur Pleasant from a few weeks ago after he won the SHOOT Project Iron Fist Championship.


    Sample RP #2:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...S1yfGSnHs/edit
    This is for another character I handle in SHOOT Project, Courtney Hatchett. I wanted to show this one off because it shows how vastly different some of the characters are that I handle and the type of mental preparation that goes into my work.

    Sample RP #3:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...cgW4GGICA/edit
    This is for the character I?ve run with for the past 20+ years. Again, this is just to show how different the characters are that I run. This one?s a bit long since there was a lot of storytelling to be had, as well as smack talk.

    Segment Sample #1:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...VvA-WgPZ0/edit - From Ruination a few days ago. It led up to what will be my 2nd sample?

    Segment Sample #2:
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...Jr24vBiFM/edit - This is from Revolution 152, which aired a few days ago. It is actually the 3rd part of 3 different segments that all involved the torture of Azraith DeMitri.

    Wrestler(s) Information
    Please take note of a couple things. It is highly likely that a few roster members will critique your moveset. Please don't be offended. We take that seriously here - we don't want a moveset full of finishers and a finisher so ludicrously over-elaborate that it couldn't be done in real life. This goes double if you're applying as a female wrestler. We also check to make sure your finisher(s) and theme song aren't currently being used. It's first come first serve when it comes to those. If you want to get ahead of the game on the finisher and theme song front, take a look at our roster page: http://defiancewrestling.com/roster
    And if you're one of those handlers who hates doing movesets, just say so and we'll help you.

    Ring Name: ?The Provocateur? Arthur Pleasant
    Height: 6?3?
    Weight: 207lbs
    Hailing From: (This is where your character is introduced as being from)
    Under the Midnight Sun in (Utqiaġvik, AK)
    Alignment: (Heel or Face? You may not play a Tweener without special staff permission)
    Heel
    Gimmick: (Describe your gimmick. If your wrestler isn't heavily gimmicked then describe his/her persona.)
    Arthur is an ever-evolving character that I started a little over a year ago. That said, here are some of the more specific characters traits, nuances, and idiosyncrasies that I've developed in Arthur Pleasant thus far:

    He was born in Utqiavik, Alaska. This is where the Midnight Sun phenomenon happens. Based on this, he has an innate hatred for daylight. In some ways, this hatred has metastasized into a fear of the sun itself. In which case, night advocates an inner peace... even if it is seldom found.

    At it's (im)purest form, Arthur is just a really dark, disturbing character. An irredeemable soul who loathes the wrestling industry due to his childhood being adversely affected from it. Thus, he takes out his hatred on all those around him in the most violent, sadistic ways imaginable. When he speaks he does so in a contemptuous, cynical tone. He can tell you to go fuck yourself without actually saying it.

    He has a boundless amount of charisma, which helps his immense cult-leader type of personality. He has many psychological issues and often sees a court mandated psychiatrist for it. Arthur will deliver promos at times during one of his sessions where the Doctor remains digitally pixelated so as to protect his practice from Arthur essentially breaking the ethical code of patient/client privileges.

    Wrestling Style: (Tell us a little bit about what your wrestler does in the ring and the general psychology behind it.)

    Arthur Pleasant is well-versed in Hardcore Wrestling. When he's not trying to bash your skull in with a chair or put you to sleep with a chloroform ragm he'll be biting, poking, and low-blowing his way through the match. His focus is generally the head and neck area since he likes to utilize piledrivers, DDTs, and their various forms in softening up for his big finish, Calamity Pain.


    Three Weaknesses:
    - Not proficient in technical or submission based wrestling.
    - No regard for his well-being this applies in and out of the ring. This can lead to recklessness with more focused opponents.

    - Spends way too much time toying with opponents during matches.



    Three Strengths:
    - Above average to genius level intellect.
    - Dangerous striker; has a Muay-Thai background.
    - Extreme tolerance for pain.


    MOVESET
    Ten regular moveset moves:
    1) Muay Thai mid-kicks
    2) Muay-Thai Punches
    3) Rope assisted roughness (Stun Guns, etc.)
    4) Headbutt
    5) DDT
    6) Eyepoke
    7) Eye Gouge
    8) Biting
    9) Roaring elbows
    10) Piledriver

    2-5 trademark moves:
    1) Provocation (Standing Shining Wizard AKA Eddie Edwards' Boston Tea Party)
    2) Friends Till The End (Back to Back Shining Wizards; Front and then Back)
    3) Land of Make Believe (Triple Rolling Fisherman Busters)
    4) Insomnia (Pump-Handle Piledriver)
    5) Narcolepsy (Precision Buzzsaw Kick; Opponent is standing OR kneeling)


    Finishing Move:
    Calamity Pain - (GTS set-up, into a codebreaker)

    "MDK" (murderdeathkill) Finishing Move (Rare Special Occasion Finisher) (Optional)
    Coma Induced Sleep (Cradle Tombstone Piledriver from the second rope onto an unfolded chair.)

    Based off the application alone you seem like a solid fit in DEFIANCE. You have great peeps vouching for you already which is another plus. Yes from me. However, on your second weakness there is a run off sentence for how that weakness impacts him. Other than that solid app, hope you enjoy your time here.

    Well THAT's embarrassing. hahaha. That was supposed to be something along the lines of "Can lead to obvious recklessness against more focused opponents."

    God, I wanna NO myself for that one.

    I think the character concept is cool. I see your application fell victim to the dreaded forum ? scandal LOL. I can easily look beyond that and vote yes from me.

    Yeah the boards are a mess. I'm pitching a new way to do apps in the near future.

    It's a 100% yes from me. I think that's 4 votes so you're in.
