Dressed in hoodies or t-shirts - most of them emblazoned with slogans that call out for a revolution - Julien is almost always seen in red. He's the quintessential scruffy teenager, with ripped jeans and Converse or combat boots. He's highly recognisable for the red scarf that he usually has wrapped around his neck, especially while on missions; it's often used to cover his lower face. He carries a switchblade and simple handgun, but rarely uses them if he can avoid it, and a lighter, which he'll happily use as often as possible. Julien's always down for a spot of arson. Usually, he also has at least one pack of cigarettes on him.
Skills/Abilities, or Job:
Leader of the Dragons; politics student. Works in a bookstore for a part-time job. Julien can be charming when he wants to be, and has a way with words; he can deliver passionate speeches at the drop of a hat. He also seems to literally brighten rooms when he enters them, strengthening light sources - he carries around a lighter for this reason, as in dark rooms, he can lighten them drastically by strengthening the light it emits. Light seems to follow Julien around, and there are even times when he seems to glow just a little. It's easily write-offable as an optical illusion, though.
He's a decent shot with a gun, but not particularly above average, after training in shooting a handgun mostly just to be able to defend himself. He's tall but slight, and if he could ever be bothered to get into knife fights, he'd be deadly.
Julien is a rebel at heart. He's always resisted authority in the search of freedom, and believes fiercely in pursuing equality for all, more than prepared to make sacrifices for the greater good. He's strongheaded and can come across as incredibly unapproachable, and uncaring about those who surround him. However, that isn't really true at all, and he adores those he considers close to him, and will find ways to make them feel important and loved, even if he's not very good at demonstrating affection in the traditional ways.
With a firmly working class background, a troublesome child from the start, Julien was raised with a strong awareness of the injustices of the world. Laurent, Julien's older brother by seven years, was pulled into the Greys' world when Julien was seven, and killed in a deal gone wrong a couple of years later. It was not Julien's first taste of wanting revenge, but it was the first time he'd be willing to go to such lengths to achieve it. He joined the Dragons young, at about twelve, working more or less only as an errand boy; his parents were absent much of the time, occupied by work, and Julien's activities were kept quiet from them. Through a mixture of being charming, pretty, and angry, Julien worked his way up the ranks, becoming leader at the age of 18 when the previous leader was killed. He cares greatly about taking the Greys out of power and restoring justice, fairness, and equality to the city and its government.
Alongside his criminal career, Julien believes firmly in the accessibility of education for all, and the pursuit of a non-violent world: he has continued his educational career, living a double life as a politics student at the local university. In the long term, it's very possible that, once the Dragons have taken over, he intends to install himself in charge of the city's government, leading its people to a brighter future.
