[Background]
Argentine first appeared at the theme park that Dark brought Risa on a date to. However, Riku grew suspicious and had Daisuke also meet her at the same place, day, and time to check if he has any relevance to Dark. Luckily, they pulled it off by switching back and forth with the help of Wiz. The lights went out and Dark and Risa were stuck on the top of a Ferris wheel. Dark went for help and had her wait for him. While she was waiting, Argentine made his grand appearance and asked if she was Dark’s "Holy Maiden".

He took her with him in order to lure Dark to him. Within that time, Risa and Argentine eventually bonded somewhat. It was a straigned relationship as far as bonding goes, though. When Risa first woke up, she woke to the sound of beautiful music coming from the piano. Argentine was playing, saying that his creator told him that waking up to music made humans happy. Risa threw a vase that contained flowers at him because he changed her while she was sleeping. What was his reason? He said the clothing she had on wasn’t very lady like and that wearing that dress was much more appropriate for a young woman. He ended up doing it again, not really thinking about invasion of privacy or anything to do with taking advantage of her. He didn't know why she was so mad. He thought that she didn’t like the flowers because she threw them at him the other day.

She was embarrassed by this because he didn’t get the real reason why she did it. After a while, she attempted to jump off, but he wouldn't let her. He said that she was "breakable". Humans were oh-so-breakable and he didn't want that to happen to her. After all, he needed her help. He decided to show her Qualia. Kosuke, Daisuke's father, informed them that Argentine was originally a piece of living art made by the Hikari family. What is Living Art? Living Art is an art technique mastered by the Hikari family. Long ago, the original Hikari got tired of creating regular art. Therefore, he began to make a different art technique. Living Art. He sold his soul for the technique, but a great thief -- heir of the Niwa family -- attempted to steal it for himself. Things went array and Dark was created for the Niwa family, as was Krad for the Hikari family. They became known as Kokuyoku. Argentine was considered a failed piece of art and supposedly destroyed. The reason why he was "destroyed" was because his powers become unstable and dangerous. So what part did Risa have in all of this? She was going to help Argentine become Kokuyoku with Qualia; or so that was his thoughts beyond the kidnapping and such. Dark and Krad are two sides of the same person. In order to become Kokuyoku, he needed Risa’s help because she is Dark’s Holy Maiden.

All Argentine wanted with Risa was to find out how to give Qualia a heart. He asked her, "Are you what they call a 'heart'?" That is when Risa discovered that Argentine really did have a heart. She told him that him wanting to give a heart to Qualia proved he had a heart of his own. He had times where he cried and he didn’t understand what it was for. He called it, "an unnatural phenomenon". After the fight between Dark and himself, he realized he had lost Qualia again. There was no saving her this time and that really upset him. Tired and defeated, Daisuke appeared and said that he did have a heart; just as Risa had tried to explain. He also said that he didn’t like him when he first took Risa, but he realized he had a reason behind it all.

In the end, he turned into stone, only to be reborn again by Emiko, Daisuke's mother. He became the Niwa family's butler. His main purpose was to repair things that were stolen to seal the magic in them. Of course he would still have to act the role as their butler. He wasn't getting off so easily. He seemed to be pretty easy going for the most part, but he tended to argue with Towa -- the Niwa Maid -- quite a lot. Towa was also one of the Hikari's Living Art creations, but she choose to stay on their side willingly.

[Personality] If there is one thing you must know about Argentine, it's his lack of street knowledge. He knows very little information of the outside world because he's been in isolation for so long. It happens when you're in hiding and trying to keep a low profile. The things that he does know is really only information that is from the extensive library he had in his castle before it collapsed or things that he has learned about from Risa, Dark, Daisuke, Towa, and Emiko.

He may have seemed like the bad guy at first, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, he's just a clueless artwork that really didn't have bad intentions behind his actions. Of course now he knows kidnapping is wrong. He doesn't seem to show too much emotion and at times he seems to be just a fly on the wall. There are times that he does show more emotion, but that's not very often. He's interested in learning more and more about the thing he doesn't already know.

[Abilities] Argentine was able to do different sorts of magic, thanks to Qualia’s power she was lending him. However, he lost a majority of his power when he was reborn. If there is anything left, it's very limited and nothing on a huge scale. Now he has a knack for repairing items, especially the ones that Dark steals to seal off the magic in them.

[Other important stuff] It is shown that he has an alternate form as a small gecko-like lizard. He may -- or may not -- have slight feelings for Risa, but he wouldn't know that.

[Sample post]
[First Person] - If you were to describe yourself in one sentence, what would that be?
I am curious about the world and what interesting things there are to learn about.
- You're asked to take someone out for a date. Do you agree? If so, describe what you would do. If not, tell why.
What is a date?
- You have two options: either save your friend who is hanging from a cliff, or chase after the bad guy who put them in a position. If you choose the former, the bad guy will get away and it will be hard to catch him. If you choose the latter, the cliff will crumble and the friend will fall to the spiky rocks below. What do you do and why?
I would go save my friend because they are probably one my only friends.
- You discover someone stalking you. Do you call the police or deal with it yourself?
Someone is stalking me?
- What is more important to you: having friends or living on your own? Why?
I would rather have friends than to live on my own. I have been on my own for far too long. I only had Qualia there to keep me company.
- The hottest boy/girl in class/workplace just confessed their love to you. How do you respond?
What do you mean you love me? What is love?

[Third Person]
Argentine buried himself in the work he was doing. There was much too much stuff to do to just sit and do nothing. After all, Mistress Niwa seemed to have a lot of Hikari art that was stolen that needed fixing lately. It was odd to think he was fixing the stuff for the Niwas when he, himself, could be called a Hikari member as well. Much to his dismay, Towa had also been assigned to clean the dungeons, considering she never really finished it before when she found out that he was there. He simply sighed, shaking it off. Despite her presence, he found his work was somewhat enjoyable. He was usually down in the dungeons doing something if there was nothing else.

The Niwa family, and himself, were still adjusting to his permanent presence. At one point, he had been alone with Qualia. He frowned at the thought of her. Even after all that time, never was he able to give her a heart in the end. That’s what really disappointed him the most. He truly did want to save her. It was just as she saved him by lending her power to him. Now that power was no longer there. Ultimately, she was destroyed. Technically speaking, he was too. That was the weird thing, though. He was supposedly was destroyed by the Hikaris for being a “failed artwork”. Though it was obvious that the facts were wrong. He was still living after it. If you wanted to get really technical, he was destroyed again as he turned to stone. Emiko had recreated him in the end due to her own agenda. Isn't it odd how things work? Well, whatever. He was alive and kicking. That was all that mattered.

It was odd to think that Emiko could become his new “creator”, but that’s the way he saw it. He wasn’t used to things much just yet, but in time he would be. He wasn't sure how things would go, but he'd find out soon enough; or so he thought. He was so concentrated to his thoughts that he had stopped working on repairing the artifact he now held gingerly in his hand. He snapped out of his daze, glancing at it with a blank stare. He eventually continued working on repairing the small artifact, but paused his repairing once again as he heard his name being called out.

He got up, setting down the artifact gently so it wouldn’t fall and break. He got to his feet and straightened up his posture as he walked to the doorway and looked out. He saw as Emiko -- in which he called Mistress Niwa -- darting towards his location. He simply stayed put, knowing it was useless to walk to her. She took pride in him and was always happy to see him. If she really wanted to talk to him, she could just walk to him. She skidded to a stop in front of him, hugging him shortly after.

“Argentine~ there you are! Busy at work I see!” she called out to him.

He simply looked at her as his body flailed around like a ragdoll in her embrace. He grew accustomed to it by now.

“Yes… Is there something you need, Mistress?” he asked her as he nodded slightly with his naturally emotionless eyes.

“Yes! We’re having guests come over and it would be great if you could be there with us!” she said happily.

He blinked, nodded silently as if saying, “Yes ma’am”. She let out a squeal, saying something along the lines of, “That’s great! I’ll see you as soon as possible then. Do try to make haste. It-“ and that’s where he lost the rest of it. She had been speaking too fast, so the words seemed mashed together. She ranted on as she scurried back. He glanced back at the artifact, walking to it and fixing what little was left to be repaired. He carefully set it aside as he nodded. He made his way to make his entrance to the group of people.

[Why do you want to play this character in Somarium?]
I've really missed rping Argentine and I believe he needs more love then he's getting already.
[Which rule was your favorite and why?] Probably the same one as it's always been. God-moding because it sucks when people can't be beat no matter what you do.
[Where did you hear about Somarium?] App_this_plz I think
[Any questions?]
Not really.
