"Cry a river. Build a bridge. Get over it."
Name: Ignacio "Ignis" Capricho
Meaning: "Fiery" in Enci
Nicknames & Aliases: Ignacito, Ignis, Igni, Iggy
✵Midian Dragon Tattoo: Ignacio got this tattoo when he was a teenager with one of his early friend groups he gained. Although it wasn't nearly as detailed as it is now, after cutting off his friends, he added to it throughout the years.
Ignacio is a son of the wealthy Capricho family, known for their wine. He and his are family from Enca, but after the numerous Alpha attacks and the family home being burnt down, the family emigrated to Ca-Elum about fifteen years ago. Finding success in Ca-Elum, the family began expanding their business across Ishgar.
When they first emigrated to Ca-Elum, a young Ignis had to leave his Encan friends at the border. Friendless and lonely, he was desperate for someone to hang out with, and that desperation led him to a questionable crowd. A group of teenagers young and old took notice of Ignis one day and befriended him easily, and before he knew it, they all were indulging in the street's candy—narcotics. Some made it, some sold it, but all of them indulged in it, including Ignis. It had gotten to the point where he spent his generous allowance to supply him and his friends with drugs, acquiring street-smarts and nasty habits as a result. He had even gotten a tattoo with them during one of his highs.
However, for one reason or another, a day came by where Ignis could not provide his friends with the narcotics they so routinely indulged in. They'd become unfriendly and critical, and some would even leave the scene altogether knowing that their fix wasn't coming. When Ignis's inability to provide his group with their fixes became more and more inconsistent, his friends thinned more and more, until there was no one left. The reason they had stuck around became heartbreakingly clear.
After those events, Ignis cut them off completely and got involved in drug cartels. He began trafficking drugs and continued to do them, even to this day. He developed trust issues and continues to keep people at a distance.

Hidden Talents: Ignis is surprisingly adept at wood carving, identifying plants, and remembering details. Additionally, he is able to play acoustic guitars and pianos.
Fun Fact: Ignis is an ambivert, ambidextrous, and his favorite color is pickle green.
At first glance, Ignis seems like the type that's hard to get along with and even harder to sincerely befriend. He's known for his typically disinterested attitude, sharp-tongue, brutal honesty, sarcasm, and the fact that he doesn't take shit from anybody, granting him an air of toughness as well. Different from selfishness, Ignis is driven by self-interest. He is always in pursuit of people, places, and things that he feels he could benefit from and he does what he needs to do in order to get them. His moral compass is flexible in that regard, leaving him open to deceit and even violence when necessary. As a byproduct of his occupation, Ignis isn't an open man. He keeps his private life private, dislikes talking about his feelings, and is relatively quiet as well. As a result, Ignis can even come across as enigmatic, cold, and secretive.
With that being said, Ignis isn't all bad. Just as he's known for his provocative behavior, he is also founded on his good traits as well. Incredibly reliable, protective, and loyal to a fault, Ignis makes it clear why he has found success in the relationships he keeps. Despite his icy quips and unfriendly demeanor, Ignis can be seen for his kindness and generosity as well. He's realistic in his perception of goals and people, hard-working, and determined in everything he wants to do. He reserves a lot of patience with himself and others and values the well-being of friends and family.
At his worst, Ignis can sometimes abandon his patience when tempted with infuriating people or situations, and those are moments where he is truly scathing and insensitive. His moral compass may be too flexible in that things that should be off the table are within his consideration in order to achieve the results he wants most. At his best, he can be kind and affectionate to the people he cares about, or even willing to be a ride-or-die with close friends and family despite any issues they have. In everyday situations, Ignis has a strong sense of charity and community. He indulges in the family wealth with luxuries most people couldn't afford on a routine basis, but will also contribute some of his wealth to the less fortunate where he comes across them.
✵Wine: As opposed to pursuing other occupations, Ignacio decided to take up part of the family business because of his pursuit of expanding it and his love for their product. He is a man who loves wine in general, and it is his first choice of alcohol when drinking socially.
✵Expensive Cigars: Ignacio is a heavy smoker and is picky about what he smokes. A lot of his cigars are imported or from renowned brands. Aside from cigars, Ignis also enjoys smoking cigarettes.
✵Films: One of his favorite pastimes. He's partial to thrillers, history and nature documentaries, and... romance. Sometimes. It has to be good.
✵Reading: Ignacio enjoys reading by himself. It's peaceful and takes him away from reality if only for a few hours.
✵Going Out: True to his ambiverted tendencies, Ignacio enjoys going out to social gatherings like parties, events, and festivals at times.
✵Self-Sufficiency & Independence: Despite having the ability to live life comfortably and securely, Ignis only enjoys the luxuries it can afford, not the services. He likes doing things himself and prides himself on hard work.
✵Children: Ignacio was never fond of children. He thinks they're annoying, gross, and needy. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be mutual as far as the children go. Kids, for one reason or another, tend to cling to Ignis and find him quite enjoyable. It's not enjoyable.
✵Needy People: Similar to children, he doesn't like dependent people, whether it be physically, financially, or emotionally.
✵Things Not Going As Planned: That is to say, he also doesn't like surprises. Ignis approaches his day with an agenda, and he expects things to go according to that. Anything else and he's irritated.
✵Liars: Liars, flakey people, and people who don't keep their word are all one in the same as far as Ignacio is concerned. He knows that he's reliable and keeps his promises, and so expects the same out of others. His trust is not to be trifled with.
✵Fire: After the family home being burnt down when he was younger, Ignacio has developed a distaste for fire in most settings. It makes him uncomfortable.
✵Uncleanliness: Ignacio hates dirty people, dirty environments, and unhygienic people.
✵Pursuing Greater Wealth: For both himself and the family business, the reason he took up the expansion into Fiore was to expand their wealth. His lifestyle is expensive, you know? The money isn't coming from thin air.
✵The Drug Cartel: Although his initial involvement was reluctant, remaining as an active participant in drug trafficking gives him immense personal income and connections with useful people.
✵His Family: Despite his flaws and questionable morality, Ignacio values his family and their well being. He wants them to succeed more than anyone else, despite his attitude towards them.
✵Rodents: He freezes up when he sees anything small and remotely mouse-like.
✵Withdrawal: Still addicted to the narcotics he trafficks, he routinely does drugs in order to avoid the brutal withdrawal he fears.
✵Being Taken Advantage Of: Ignacio hates the idea of being taken advantage of or being manipulated into doing something against his best interest.
