❀ Personality ❀
✿ Music: Gilligan grew up around his mother, who was an exceptionally talented musician and singer. He was never forced into the art, but rather he was drawn to it like a magnet. He adores music with a passion and still pursues it as a hobby.
✿ Stars: Gilligan has been curious about the sky for a long time. Questioning why the stars were up there, how some twinkled and glowed, and how they changed throughout the years. He took initiative on his curiosity and began to invest his time and energy into figuring out the why’s of the skies. And his love for them has been growing ever since.
✿ Art: Gilligan’s entire lineage is filled with artists and craftsmen, stubborn and passionate in their own ways. There were masons, tattoo artists, painters, and even carver in his genealogy. He grew up in creative spaces with family that were always creating, and as such was naturally inclined to adore and appreciate the arts. Gilligan prefers charcoal over painting.
✿ Books: The Caparii was always known to have his nose deep within a book, whisked away to new lands or learning some new subject. Anything made of paper with words on it, he’d need to get his hands on. He adores fantasy novels and stories, but won’t shy away from educational texts, either. He just adores books, and one day hopes to have an entire library of them.
✿ Plants: After being sparked, Gilligan has found a strange but very welcome connection with flora. He feels connected to it, in a way.
✿ Loud Noises: Due to incidents as a child, Gilligan has a case of Phonophobia. He not only has issues with loud noises, but anybody who is loud in general. So much to the point where a sudden loud sound may send him into an anxiety attack. It’s just a pain to put up with in his life, and prefers the solitude and quiet over a bustling bar anyday.
✿ Fish: It’s bad enough that he’s allergic to them, but fish in general are just.. Strange. Gilligans distaste for the species sprouted from his allergy to them, and lots of incidents since then have made him extremely dislike the animal. He’s half convinced they’re out to get him.
✿ The Ocean: Tying in with his dislike of anything with fins, Gilligan doesn't like the place where they live in general. The smell, the seaweed, everything about it just never appealed to him. Even the smell and the rocking of being on boats makes him feel queasy. Gill isn't a good swimmer, and has been very bitter toward the sea for a long time. He'd rather be by land than by sea.
✿ Spiders: Too many legs. Too many eyes. Just... No.
✿ Empathy: Gilligan is an emotional person, and as such is able to pick up on the vibe of the room pretty quickly when it comes to social situations. He may come off as a distant and awkward person, but he is sincere and is rather good at assessing someone's mental state.
✿ Quick Learner: Gill may be a bit of a dork, but he’s quick to latch onto an idea or a concept and run with it. He’s good at following plans and sticking to them, and adapting to situations and change. As a scholar he’s open to new ideas and concepts, but he may be afraid to try them, physically.
✿ Green Thumb: Although he still has his head in the clouds, this Caparii is quite knowledgable in herbalism and apothecary. Able to identify and forage plants that can be used for medicinal and other purposes. He's a good gardener as well, most thanks to his affinity in Formistry.
✿ Vocal Music: Inherited from his mother, Gilligan has a set of pipes that are rather impressive. He doesn't like to demonstrate his skill much, but he can be heard practicing at times in private if you listen in. He may even be implored to perform with the right crowd- But this Caparii is sort of sheepish around crowds.
✿ Physically Weak: Gilligan may be a brainy boy, but when it comes to braun he has absolutely none. In fact, when it comes to fight or flight, his brain goes to freezing up and trying to flee. He has no training in physical combat, and in a combat-oriented situation he’s absolutely lost.
✿ Cowardly: Gilligan is horrible when it comes to confrontation. And although he wants to be adventurous like his heroes in the books he’s read, his conscience tells him to flee when up-front with a problem. Either that, or poorly try to talk his way out. He could try to summon up the courage to deal with issues, but it will only result in a rather awkward and painful situation.
✿ Gullible: Being the youngest sibling of four, Gill was subject to a lot of unfortunate pranks and teasing. He was often tricked and ridiculed for being rather too trustworthy of people, and since he's rather an open book, its all the more easy for people to manipulate him. He's able to believe people rather easily, and it's not even an issue he's aware of, yet.
✿ Migraines: Those glasses on his face aren’t just for show. He actually wears them to prevent rather awful migraines that make his ears ring, and his sight go blurry. The issue is genetic, but one that can’t be cured. He tries to cope any way he can, but they can be a real issue on long carriage rides and prolonged exposure to bright lights.
✿ Phonophobic: This is the biggest hurdle Gill has the most issue conquering. Loud noises can easily startle him, to the point of having drastic mood swings and even anxiety attacks. He tries to calm himself any way he can, but the poor boy can’t handle it when people yell (Both at him, or in other places) and can’t go to any large events with big crowds. This is something he is trying to overcome, but it’s still something he struggles with.

✿ Turning into his father
☞ Education: Gilligan is for the most part, self taught. He practically lived at his local library and was hungry for knowledge. Anything that wasn’t academic, was taught by his father and mother.

✿ His ears tend to move along with his emotions. When he’s startled they perk up, when he's annoyed they flatten and tilt, when sad they droop, etc.
✿ Gilligan is going through a lot of inner turmoil. He’s constantly in a state of trying to take risks, but being too scared to take them. He’s got a lot to figure out about himself and is trying to take things one day at a time.
