Dantalion

Maker:
CP
Head Sculpt:
Shine
Skintone:
Beauty white
Body:
Fairyland Feeple60
Sex:
Male
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Hearts Murmur (me)
    Reason for choice:
    His giant anime eyes, for sure!
    Best Points:
    This sculpt is too cute. And the Feeple60 body is one of my favorites!
    Worst Points:
    The head had a nasty color change over the years. Beauty green, you know how it is. XD Luckily I was able to minimize it with some white pastel before painting the faceup.
    This was actually the third BJD I ever bought, though he has spent most of his time with sephyelysian!
    I had big plans for this doll, and had made some progress with it until I decided to scrap my entire collection and start over with new characters. This guy ended up with Sephy, who even kept his character.
    Years later, I decided to give those original characters another try, and several of them got reshelled into other sculpts. I thought about making Dantalion into something else, but the whole idea of him being a shapeshifter makes me want him to have many heads, an idea the Delf Type 2+ and Fairyland Feeple60 lends itself to with the neck mechanism and all. I just put him out of my mind, but then I was thinking about getting a Shine just because I missed having one... and Sephy offered me Dantalion back! So in the end, both the doll and the character returned. ♥ Thank you, Sephy! XD
    Whether or not he will get additional heads again remains to be seen.
  • Eyes:
    Silver 18mm
    Wig:
    Several
    Favourite colours:
    Muted tones, nothing obnoxious
    Fashion style(s):
    European men's fashion from the 16-18th century suits him well, but he'll wear modern clothes, too.
    Dantalion is kind of like a whiny old man always talking about the good old days, and his fashion choices reflect that. He loves period clothing from Europe, because it's what he grew up with. I'll put him in modern clothes now and then just for fun, but nothing too casual. Dantalion has to look fancy.
  • Name story:
    It comes from the Ars Goetia, a 17th century grimoire!
    Character age:
    400ish
    Character gender:
    Male
    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Dantalion was the youngest child in a wealthy human family. He was very close with them, but he inherited his name and transformed into a demon at his mother's funeral, terrifying everybody. Assuming they thought him a monster, he never communicated with them again. The power he inherited was that of impersonation: Dantalion can take on the form of any person he has ever seen. Due to this unique ability, other demons were unable to locate him and he lived for over a hundred years with no understanding of what he was. He spent this time feeling utterly miserable and alone in the world, constantly moving around and changing his face to fit in.

    By the time he was found by other demons, he had used his power so often that his health began to deteriorate and his shapeshifting was not as reliable. If he was surprised or became too emotional, his appearance would change against his will. So he chose to live in the demon world and not respond to human summons. This suited him fine because he liked the sense of belonging. It was almost like having a family again.

    Despite the lull in his magical activities, Dantalion's condition did not improve. Nowadays he usually feels unwell, and spends most of his time sleeping. With some effort, he maintains the appearance of what he calls his "real face", but has lost control of his hair completely so it's constantly changing.
