We both fell asleep on the floor, then I left you there
Styxe has always been a man of many words. He can run his mouth until the cows come home with his sarcastic tongue and it's usually what ends up getting him into shitty situations. Living on the streets in a gang, he's lived as a ruthless thug for most of his life, but he's a caring, understanding wallflower that connects deeply with the people that stay by his side.
The only time Styxe is ever open about his past is when it's necessary. Rarely will he leak events to anything occurring prior to his time in the facade. His life has been a blur of events he'd rather not remember anyway, centering around his brother and the girl who fucked with their hearts.
Styxe was born to a suicidal mother (who'd attempted to take her life while Styxe was still in the womb) and an abusive father who learned not to care whether his hand was hitting concrete or Styxe's face. So Styxe left and got involved with a few gangs that skulked around the streets of a dangerous town called Karkoff just in the shadow of Fastaluc.
The first gang ran him through a series of tests, put his body through hell and back and brought him close to death on several circumstances. When he was deemed unfit to run with their blood, he was dumped on the side of the street in a pool of his own blood. Nobody would give a shit anyway--eventually he'd be found, cleaned up, and forgotten.
Except he wasn't. A girl by the name of Meg Castaway found him and dragged him to her boyfriend, Adrian Rhodes. It was a slow and painful process, but Styxe clung to life as hard as he could and eventually he came to. They didn't call themselves a gang, Meg, Rhodes, and a boy who went by Everest, but they fought in the ongoing war in the streets and did their best to stay alive.
They extended the offer to Styxe and eventually, he became part of the family. Then there was Meg. Meg, who couldn't deny the attraction she'd felt toward him even when he'd been nothing but a mangled bag of flesh that looked less like a person and more like Death. Meg who loved Rhodes to death because he'd always been there for her, had been patient whenever she couldn't handle herself, who had stuck his neck out for Styxe time and time again even when he knew she was slowly falling in love with the both of them.
And Styxe fell. He fell hard. Rhodes was his brother and Meg was always someone he couldn't have. She wouldn't choose, so Styxe chose for her, and spared them all the pain.
They'd been at war with a gang that had pushed up against their borders and had attempted to drive them from every home they made. They were gfteds, still under the radar from the OSR, but only because they were tactful. Their ruthlessness gave way to the death of Everest. So with their family broken, Styxe left and sought out another group that would take care of the people who'd killed one of his brothers. The Facade saw something in him, refined his street fighting style into something deadlier, turned him into a lethal weapon. Then they sent him into the Academy.
