Post game.Personality:WARNING. THAR BE SPOILERS AHEAD.
No, seriously. They may not be any MAJOR spoilers but spoilers are spoilers especially when it comes to Fate/hollow ataraxia. You have been warned!
Also Avenger kind of deals with and discusses some triggery things in canon, but I'll ry to avoid those at all costs. If actually needed, I'll be sure to warnwarnwarn and put up a cut and all that good stuff.
There once lived a simple village boy, who was admired by his family and friends alike. He was a hard worker, and always willing to lend a hand where needed. And then one day his life got flipped turned upside down. Stolen away from his family, enduring an nearly unending cycle of being beaten, cursed, and branded as the object that represented all the evil in the world every single day... It's no wonder that the poor boy lost his mind. He cursed humanity, he cursed the world, he even cursed himself. But eventually he accepted his role and rotted away.
So it only makes sense that once he returned to the world of the living, he was the living antithesis of all the good traits humanity possessed. His manner of speech is rather rough and unrefined, leading people to find him rather rude and uncomfortable to speak with. There's also his manners, or rather his lack therefore. He'll often refer to people by nicknames he comes up with on spot, rather than using proper titles, or even someone's name. There's also a fact that he's rather perverted when around women. But what man of the world isn't, really?
He's also rather lazy and laid back, which may be the result of him being such a hard worker during his previous life. Would anyone want to take it easy after being subjected to the torture he was? If given a choice, he'll always pick the easiest way, or even try to worm his way out of situations. He doesn't really care if other people look at him in a poor light because of it. He could care less about what anyone thinks of him.
And while he really isn't all that strong, being considered the weakest servant ever produced by the grail, he's still pretty cruel and homicidal. He kills indiscriminately, when allowed. He is much like a wild beast when he attacks, going all out in hopes he gets his kill. And one can tell he really enjoys it by how he leaves the corpses completely torn up. Ironic, considering that by day Avenger changes into Shirou Emiya, the boy who is his complete opposite in every way. Or perhaps it's better to say that Shirou is much like Avenger was before his fling with tragedy. That may be the reason he assumes the boy's identity by day, living almost too carelessly and enjoying life with Shirou's friends.
So it's not so much that Avenger is actually a horrible person, he's just forgotten who he was. He lost his sense of self on that day so many years ago, and became what those who cursed him wished him to be. The living embodiment of evil. He acts only out of self interest, and portrays what truly lies in the deep darkness of the human heart. Or so we would like to believe. He's actually shown he's capable of caring for people under certain conditions, although that may really just be a flaw caused by a certain someone.Sample Entry:
Sooo, which one of you guys wants to go explore the great beyond? 'Cuz you know, I've had this strangest feeling every since I last went out there. When those... things attacked. I 'unno what the hell it was, but I actually enjoyed it. Tell me this is a normal thing. I mean, I don't want to be the odd man out or anything. And I sure as hell don't want to be considered more of a freak than I already am thanks to whoever the hell thought it was a good idea to put these damn tattoos all over me. Hell, I'll even let you keep all the memory junk we find. I just want to fight those beasts again. That cool with you?
