Info

Delinius Rupert Langton is a Soul Flame, commonly known among the Gridmask population of Ludus for his actions during and after the witch hunts. He was born on Ludus in -202 ADC/AEQ as a Gridmask. His pestertag is disillusionedLongevity.

Personality

Delinius has a feeling for tact and often takes notice of subtle signs and details that allow him to understand others better. Normally, he is distant to those he doesn't know, but lets go if this when he becomes more familiar with them. He's quite kind towards friends and colleagues, though not necessarily very open about his thoughts or any plans. Especially his past is a slightly sensitive subject for him, and he keeps it to himself as much as possible.

Aside from this, he has several characteristics that he tends to be proud of. As a Dwinian, he is proficient in several common and uncommon languages of Ludus, as well as a few not native to the planet. Due to this, his speech is full of quirks and odd words, leading to many jokes and humourous misunderstandings, often caused by him on purpose. As well, he is known for his distinct accent and the related dialect of Ludusian Common he speaks, which differs in its many alternate spellings as well as words not used in the Gredilean form. Another major difference involves his cooking, which features spices and herbs not found on Gredile. How exactly Delinius acquires these despite their absence is not known. It is plausible that he cultivates these himself, but this has never been proven.

A magical accident caused Delinius to develop into a Soul Flame, also drawing in fragments of the souls of several deceased individuals near him. This results in occasional erratic behaviour that is mostly surpressed save for moments of extreme strain/danger.

Appearance

Delinius' hair is originally dark brown, though it later turned to a more reddish brown colour due to a magic-related accident. It remains fairly tidy despite the fact he does very little about it and tends to hang just above or across his shoulders and springs up towards the back a bit as well.

His usual clothing consists of an orange vest of a colour identical (or similar) to his auric colour, with red pads on the shoulders. He also wears a short mantle in a similar colour for particular occasions. Under this, he wears yellowish-brown pants, red socks and a pair of brown shoes. In some cases, however, he wears a dark blue coat, along with a brown hat, an old disguise associated with Leonard Essington, a pseudonym.

Story

Α Alpha Timeline

Delinius' role remains a background one on this timeline due to established agreements. He is considered a valuable employee of LDZX who deals with various '(il)legalities'.

Saga-Unsplit Timeline

Early life

Delinius grew up in an extended family, consisting of aunts and uncles with their families, as well as several grandparents, living in the mountainous area in the West of Faeric. Like the rest of his family, Delinius belongs to a line of Gridmasks descending from a lesser god, Dwin, whose followers (and any descendants) possess skill in pyromancy and in general high magical ability.

As a deitic descendant, Delinius was taught about various arts of magic from an early age, keeping a steady pace with his regular education. His talent for magic proved quite versatile, going far beyond merely pyromancy.

Nazcan Invasion

The events later recorded as the Nazcan War or Nazcan Invasion occurred around the time that Delinius was barely 12 years. Rather than trying to stay safe the best he could, he insisted on aiding in the effort against the Nazcan threat. His young age meant that he was unable to work with the crossbows used otherwise in situations where physical weaponry was required, and he instead learned to work with a specially-made bow and a short hatchet.

Throughout the various conflicts with Nazcan forces, Delinius picked up a lot of new ways to utilise his magic for various purposes. Alongside pyromancy, he also became quite skilled in photomancy, cryptomancy and phlogistomancy, a somewhat obscure form of magic associated with ancient wizards and alchemy, specifically related to combustive reactions. Though Delinius did not have particular talent for various other forms of elemental magic, he did develop some ability for various other forms, though he didn't particularly require them. With the defeat of the Nazcans, Ludus breathed freely again, and Delinius resumed his studies.

At some time after the end of the Nazcan War, Delinius was invited to a party where he and a number of peers celebrated the victory over the invading hivemind. An experimental spell proposed by one of them was poorly executed, killing him along with three more partygoers. However, Delinius reanimated, likely a saving act performed by Dwin. Presumably, a Nova was inserted into his body, an entity consisting of a deity's 'blood' substance. Aside from reanimating him in the form of a Soul Flame, this had the unusual effect of drawing in fragments of souls belonging to three others who had died in the accident, altering Delinius' personality to some extent.

Misunderstood because of his transformation, Delinius abandoned his homeplace and traveled to mainland Ludus. By misfortune, this was several months before the witch hunts would start, in -182 AEQ. Although initially not targeted by paranoid Ludusians, Delinius defended the witches and their actions in front of his neighbours, causing him to be deemed equally suspicious and subsequently hunted. In the following 44 years, Delinius travelled great distances to escape from paranoia, reaching as far as Mavus as well as the southeast coasts of the Faeric.

It is known that Delinius did in fact follow the events surrounding Jericho Cane's campaign to end the oppression of magicians and aliens and wished to help. However, he could not rest in one place for any period of time, having acquired an amount of infamy that he was continuously pursued by some amount of committed Gridmasks. Frustrated by this, Delinius took the risk of crossing the ocean to the north of the main landmass, having heard about the continent Auzos. Despite poor weather conditions, he was able to cross to the continent.

Upon reaching Auzos, Delinius found himself safe from paranoia, although some residents were nevertheless somewhat hesitant to aid the Soul Flame. Somewhat disappointed, Delinius took up the job of mail carrier and earned his living this way for several years. Throughout this time, he took note of the various other aliens and magicians that had taken refuge here, and discovered that many did not get the chance to establish a living there. Feeling sympathy for their undeserved fate, Delinius began an organisation that took in refugees of all kinds, not only to sustain them in their basic needs, but also to aid them in finding work.

Among the refugees are a few Soul Flames, notably one by the name of Lyka Westwood. Shortly after the two meet, they discover their similarities and develop a romantic bond. As well, Lyka was responsible for the name that soon was given to Delinius' initiative: Langton incorporated. For many years, it flourished, welcoming in new people and saying goodbye to some who find a life of their own on Auzos.

Due to a misunderstanding, Delinius unintentionally killed a man resembling Sanford, and was forced to abandon Auzos to return to the main continent, also leaving Lyka on her own. Due to his absence from the continent where he'd be hunted down for decades, much of Gredile's populace had little idea of who the man truly was at the time, though a multitude of myths circulated concerning him.

With the reappearance of Delinius, however, the majority of news agencies attempted to interview him, basing their conversations on the myths and asking the Soul Flame highly suggestive questions. Unwilling to be pinned to the incorrect tales of his past, Delinius actively denied them an interview and set out to have a small home built in the arid desert of Gredile. Though this resolved the issue about the irritating reporters trying to reach him, it did leave a number of imitators unaddressed. Hearing of many cases of arson in Steckenberg, Delinius spread rumours that he will come to end the lives of all of them and managed to gather all his false duplicates on a large square, where he defeated all of them in combat.

Saga-Doomed Timeline

On the Doomed timeline, Delinius was warned about the Reckoning taking place in the future thanks to a Dwinian prophecy, and prepares accordingly by reinforcing his mansion. On top of this, he also installs several automated turrets and other defensive mechanisms. During this, he becomes distant and nearly impossible to contact, responding vaguely to questions.

It is known that Delinius attempted to fend off invading forces during the Reckoning itself, but with relatively little effect. This iteration of Delinius later discards his body to become an Ethereal.

Β Beta Timeline

The Beta timeline is under the development of Ludicrine and kept off-site to be worked on separately.

Details about Delinius' significance to the timeline have yet to be divulged.

Γ Gamma Timeline

Delinius of the Gamma timeline is little different from his Saga iteration up to -150 AEQ, when he fled to Auzos - years before doing so normally. On this timeline, Langton Incorporated becomes a much larger organisation, mostly due to the extra years it exists. However, he is forced to move it eventually as the population of Auzos becomes increasingly hostile towards it.

While moving the organisation to Gredile, Delinius distracts Steckenberg's people to allow the residents of Langton Inc. to settle without too many problems. During this, Delinius repeatedly comes into contact with both the Ludusian government, and several other protagonists, who believe that he is a criminal. Once the migration finishes, Delinius takes to hiding in disguise for several years, after being injured in a confrontation. Now that he has effectively disappeared, a student's research into his past reveals that his reputation of pyromaniac and arsonist is wrong. Soon enough, this news spreads to all of Gredile, allowing Delinius to resurface. While in hiding, however, Langton Incorporated has slowly fallen apart as its residents began settling elsewhere, now leaving a fairly empty shell. After the organisation has officially been disbanded, Delinius is given the remaining capital in its possession, which is enough for him to build a luxurious home with. After this, he sets out to start an industrial company.

Δ Delta Timeline

It is known that Delinius of the Delta timeline remained in his home area and was crowned Archlight, a title giving him the status as head of Dwinian religion. From this coronation on, he moved to Mavus to reign from there.

Ϝ Wau/Digamma Timeline

Θ Theta Timeline

Teteoh's manifestation leads to Delinius choosing ritual self-death. This iteration's book of notes was supposedly stolen by one of his other timeline counterparts.

Μ Mu Timeline

Ν Nu Timeline

This instance of Delinius is involved in resisting the conquering Nazcan forces. During a large-scale act of repression, he eventually comes to die, choosing to perform ritual self-combustion rather than being assimilated into the Nazcan hivemind.

Ο Omicron Timeline

Main article: Delinius Maxwell Langton

Delinius was born under a slightly different set of birth names on this timeline as Delinius Maxwell Langton, but doesn't go through significantly different development aside from going more by the name Maxwell than Delinius.

Ρ Rho Timeline

Delinius is known to have married a Splationian on this timeline, with one or more children as a result.

ΥUpsilon Timeline

A timeline where many significant characters venture out in space, the Upsilon timeline features Delinius as the owner of a space station in orbit around the star Lux. Unbeknownst to all but the few people living at said station, however, it is in fact a carefully concealed and fully equipped battleship that can be ready for deployment within 40 hours.

ΦPhi Timeline

A timeline of nonsense. Delinius is commonly seen fighting ice cream vendors and many other things.

ΩOmega Timeline

The Ireful resides here.

Relationships

Delinius has several notable relationships aside from his work associates.

  • Ina: They both care a lot about each other, making jokes along the way.
  • Maltus: Delinius' relationship with Maltus can be described as somewhat difficult on occasion, although the two have come to terms with their mutual past.
  • Lyka: On most timelines, Delinius and Lyka have a strong romantic bond, formed mostly during their time together on Auzos.
  • Isles & Quint/LDZX: Generally speaking, Delinius gets along well with his work associates, though there are slight differences in his interaction with some of them:
    • Zoshi - Delinius usually gets along well with him, often making jokes or remarks that are on the edge of acceptable, yet only does so for hunourous purpose.
    • Baxter - Curiously enough, the two only occasionally talk. If asked about this, Delinius tends to smile and remain silent.
    • Ludicrine - Apparently is somewhat scared of Delinius, but considers him a fairly reliable (albeit too passionate sometimes) worker and friend to some extent.
    • Hankvi - Delinius admires Hank for the enormous amount of work he does, as do many others. Compared to others, however, he only shows this appreciation in a subtle way.
    • Revelian - Although Revelian considers Delinius a work associate and an acquaintance, Delinius has different thoughts about this. What exactly these thoughts are remains unclear, though they are supposedly based on Delinius' historical knowledge.
    • Mercuron - Due to Mercuron's masked aura, Delinius considers them something of a mystery. However, this does not get in the way of occassional humourous talks, and Delinius is quite sympathetic to them.
    • Samuel - Due to Sam's generally cheerful mood, Delinius often finds Sam improves his own spirits, though this may later result in him writing contemplative texts and poetry, possibly due to the large difference to his own mindset.
    • Mori - Although their contact is mostly limited to work-related conversation, Delinius is aware of their relation to Zaion, as well as their abilities involving dark magic. Despite this, he seems to treat Amygea with as much respect and sympathy as anyone else.

Battle Information

Stat Trend

Delinius' stats lean towards magical ability, but he has a decent health pool and is somewhat agile. While his strength and defense are low, his dexterity is above average and he has a lot of magic potential. This allows Delinius to deal a lot of damage through magic, but renders him unable to last very long in prolonged battles. Some of his traits and moves do allow him to further increase his damage potential as his health lowers.

Trivia

  • Delinius is sometimes called by his second name, something that aggravates him very much.
  • His Pestertag is disillusionedLongevity, which seems to refer to his experiences during the witch hunts as well as his ageless state.
  • His aura has a distinct scent of hot sauce, and is so far the only orange aura among the protagonists.
  • Having been born before the first war with the Nazcans, Delinius supposedly has great historical knowledge, though he rarely shows to possess it. In addition, it is unclear how much he knows about the past of other protagonists, if at all.
  • He has an unusual hatred towards Sanford, presumably for Sanford's role in the witch hunts.
  • Apparently, Delinius forgets to speak Common when highly tired or drunk. During this, he will speak as many as four or five different languages, all of which cannot seem to be understood and are called 'Latin', despite that fact that no such language exists on Ludus.
  • Delinius' favourite foods are burritos and sandwiches, both usually with spicy sauce.
  • The last name Langton is an existing name in real life and quite common, though the character's author did not realise this until much later.
