Sorry about the late post here, my dudes. Last week was quite the week. Between work and other concerns I’ve had little to no time to write. I do apologize for that. This week looks like it will be equally packed, sorry. Anyhow, you may or may not have noticed that I’ve opened up the comments on my stuff. Feel free to say whatever you like down there; compliment me, critique me, mock me mercilessly, destroy my faith in humanity, whatever.
Apathos is the incarnation of the Progenitor’s stoic grandeur. Though he always played a role in the machinations of the Progenitor, Apathos never truly influenced the world until the Progenitor left it. Humanity, abandoned and jaded, gave him a pedestal on which he could stand. Neither good nor bad, Apathos simply is. He rules the broken man in his darkest but aids the strong man when the troubles of the world would drag him down. Like an academic studying a tome, Apathos studies humans, impartial and calculating. He is the anchor that grounds the rest of the sentimentals, whether he likes it or not.

Relationships: Sorowa won’t take a hint. He’s not interested. Disciplina, on the other hand, has an exemplary posterior that requires further observation.
The Advent of Desire: No, not the guardian from the previous showcase. Instead, Desiren has no effect on Apathos, but Disciplina does. When she joined the Sentimentals, Apathos felt something he had never felt before: lust (and maybe a little bit of love.) Very meh by human standards, but a big deal for someone who isn’t supposed to feel.
Envoy Elect: In the early days of the existence of the magical weapon Envoy, it was passed along freely to anyone who would wield it. Its immense power proved to be too much for some, however, and the guardians held a council in which it was determined that only followers of Disciplina, who could control themselves, and followers of Apathos, who desired nothing, should be allowed wield a power that would corrupt all others.
