Appearance

Johann was once a lanky, blue-eyed blonde high school student with a penchant for mathematics, music, and tabletop games. After he attained his Noble status, however, his Imperator decided it would be more fitting for him to be transformed into a nonexistent animal of his choice - and so, he took his current form, a Pikachu with a shining coat and blue eyes rimmed with halos of purple. He doesn't need clothes - Pokemon don't really have genitalia, after all - but does have a satchel in which he keeps bonded possessions. Rarely, if ever, does he go somewhere without it - if he does, it usually means that there's gonna be hell to pay for an Excrucian who tried to lash out as his Estate…

History

Johann's life was pretty normal - divorced but kind parents, the pursuit of education, a small group of close friends. He hadn't even finished high school (senior year, man!) when, during Calculus III one period, the Imperator Archangel Helio whisked him away from his desk and told him, in no uncertain terms, that she needed him to hold the Estate of Numbers, as the Excrucians where starting to poke around in it. Johann wasn't given a choice - she immediately jolted him with a shock of lightning, and he gained his Power. When she mischievously winked and asked wht animal he'd want to be if he was stuck one for the rest of his life - throwing him completely for a loop - he answered "giraffe or Pikachu" and was jolted again, becoming the latter.
At this point, Johann is in love with his Nobility, carving out a corner of Helio's Chauncel for himself and his fellow Pokemon. He's also got a mild crush on some of his Familia - primarily She Who Weaves, the drow Power of String - but has prioritized earning Helio's blessing before getting so entangled, and the easiest way for him to do that is to find a way to quantify Excrucians' absolute comparative power. It won't be easy, but he's made some progress…

++Approach to Life
His former mercy has been largely lost, replaced with a sense of duty and focus on preserving his Estate. A large part of this comes from his love of mathematics from before he had Power; part of it stems from a casually binding loyalty, a fluid but stable idea that Johann aids those who aid him, befriends those who are friendly towards him, and will defend those whom he finds deserving of it; part of it comes from his compulsory sense of duty, strengthened by the Light; lastly, some of it comes from the aloofness of godhood, an apathy rooted in what makes one great. He's pragmatic while hiding behind a mask of the moral high ground, writing new equations to override those that would be detrimental to him. In protecting his Estate, and other things, he sees that it is often its own worst enemy and often should be treated as such.
Johann values commitments, goals, and promises - willful agreements to do something, whether it be remain married until death does one part, a mission to climb the World's Tallest Escalator Hill, or an oath to slay the Excrucian who killed one's father. He sees these commitments as binding, and will make them more often than not to ensure that his weakness doesn't keep the necessary things from being done.
Love and lust call to him - he was Commenced as a teenage, after all, and this aspect has yet to depart. Still, his duty comes first, and no physical or emotional desires will stop him from defending his kingdom…unless there's an Excrucian or Actual behind it, then there might be problems.

++Modus Operandi
Johann's usual approach to a confrontation is one of two things: against Excrucians and Actuals, he tries to find and exploit their weaknesses, refusing to play fair; against his fellows who decide to antagonize him, he shows all the subtlety of a tornado, blasting them with lightning and reducing them to nothing with the proper applications of Numbers and Physics. If they at any point concede, they'll live - but they'd better not try that again. He figures that, while the invaders will never truly die so much as be subdued, the other Nobles and Imperators aren't so persistent, and it's a hell of a lot easier to just break their faces and reconstruct them if necessary then take the time to figure them out.
