Persona stuff:

A man far from home. Thrown from space. Out of time. Arlen “Akumatron” Paintenstein remembers strange dark times of heated war, disease, and pestilence. Demons and horrific monsters are common place and zealots run amok looking for the tainted as they go.

His own account: “We were traveling with in our warship when a great tear in the fabric of space and time opened up. We were powerless as our navigators minds were over powered by the forces with in. Their minds were flayed as their bodies were twisted in to horrible monsters that brought forth blood and carnage upon our decks. We had no choice but to fight off our own brothers as they were corrupted. Many died at my own hands. Before we knew it we were entering the tear in space, like a great eye. The very soul of everything was before us. Many more of my brothers went insane at was seen within. Some burst into flames while others became grotesque beasts. Ripping and tearing their claws and teeth in to one another. Brother fought brother, until... I was all that was left breathing.”

Wandering from foreign shores he came to Three Rivers. The land reformed to Dark Shores under his help. For a time the Black Legion, Arclight, and Omerta enjoyed a great Renaissance of technology and science. After some time he secluded himself with a few other close friends and family to enjoy a simple life of mundania. Far from the prying ears, and eyes of those... monsters.

It is these eyes that has brought him to far away lands. To the heat and vast country side of the Celestial Kingdom. But also, the heat.

Akuma started playing in Dark Shores in the summer of 2008, but practiced and made his first stick with the then inactive Gabrielwhen they were still in high school. Being as he only knew how to make swords, at that time, Akuma fought primarily with short and long swords Florentine entirely that summer. Upon his return the following year, in the summer of 2009, Akuma has become a well rounded fighter; winning Dark Shores 5th reign Weapon Master Tourney, and has delved heavily into the arts and sciences.

Akuma moved down to San Antonio Texas in the early months of 2020 where he secluded himself during quarantine and enjoyed the online sessions with Traitors Gate on the facebook group until things were lifted. In September of 2021 Akuma emerged and joined in the first meeting of the members of his new lands gaining their trust and respect through sharing and learning each others cultures in the Arts and Sciences and reveling in talks of history long and forgotten. He renamed himself Arlen Paintenstein, after his own business ventures and his oath to his friends and family to work on bettering himself and those around him in areas that he can. To maintain this oath he swore servitude to Saint Uriel, the patron saint of the Arts and Sciences. He was made squire to Sir Griftorr Von Doom and in so doing took on the name of Von Doom. Together the two made plans to help those around them and to better the experience of those playing. Arlen has started playing as Paladin and again started playing healer to help maintain his position to be a driving force even in battle games as often as possible role playing the two classes as righteous leaders as often as he can. With his passions reignited in the Arts Arlen has now seen his skills grow greatly. Helping with garbing the park members when ever possible and even helped in producing items for this years Spring War. He is now working on items for the next Grand Dukes reign hoping to help with the ambiance of the term and has set out to reach master garber, as of now he sits on his 8th garber.

He primarily enjoys making garb and cordials and goes back and forth with painting and sculpting as well. Akuma is Dark Shores 4th, 5th, 6th and now 7th reign Dragon Master. Winning with his excellently made garbs, new types of weapon tech, and drawings.

The spring of 2010 found Akuma in the busy world of leadership and politics as he entered his first 2 terms as Sheriff. After serving his terms, Akuma is now once again in his familiar role as Champion.

2020 Akuma has found himself moving down to the San Antonio area and joining Traitors Gate
