If he's out and about, he'll almost always have his laptop with him, possibly a book as well. And if he plans on going anywhere beyond the main central area of camp, he'll have his shotgun with him.
As for his physical appearance, he has quite a bit of canon information: slender, tall (which translates to being of average height in camp -- I'm saying 5'10"), fair-skinned, blond hair, blue eyes and, overally, pretty damn good-looking. He's not so bishie as to be mistaken for a girl, but nobody would call him a manly man. And he is on the young-looking side -- at this point, he's twenty years old and probably appears to be around 16 (albeit a slightly eerily old-looking 16).
Habits/Mannerisms/Body Language: Enjolras has an almost militaristic bearing that would seem stiff if it weren't for the ease with which he handles himself; he's comfortable with his body and possesses a relatively good amount of natural grace. Overall, the body language says, "I can handle myself; as such, you will not handle me, so keep your distance and everyone will be happy." He doesn't actively shun physical contact, but he isn't a fan of it being actively pursued, either, unless it's for a valid reason. And no, anything that's not platonic is not valid. He's definitely more physically comfortable around guys than around gals; he'll keep more distance between you and him if you're female.
Often, he gets a thoughtful/far-away expression on his face. That has absolutely no correlation to whether or not he's paying attention to what's happening around him. And he is a rather still person, not fidgety at all. Actions are completely fully, smoothly and efficiently, with no extra flailing or quirks.
Current Residence: Hospital Room #208. The room is plain and, after more than a year, hardly personalized at all. There are some small piles of books here and there, as well as a slightly creepy looking nightlight in the shape of a bear (thanks, Megan).
Typical Daily Routine: On a typical day, Enjolras will be awake at around 6 AM. Breakfast at the messhall, then reading the news online (mostly op-eds -- he isn't so interested in the specifics of current events, but he's curious about the ways that people think about and approach them). Probably a trip to the library before lunch. Lunch, then the afternoon is pretty open. Things likely to fill the afternoon include reading, target practice, more reading, and preparing plans/speeches/whatever for when he gets back home. After dinner, he is likely to be a little more social; he'll be around, checking things out, seeing what's going up. Generally, he's back in his room by 10 PM and goes to bed at 11 PM.
Favorite Haunts: Enjolras is actually an out-and-about sort of a guy; he just doesn't usually strike up conversations, is all. Places you might spot him are the library, the mess hall, the hospital, the shooting range and the outside area around the cabins. He likes being among crowds.
Making the Bed? Yes.
AU. IC, if possible.
If IC, potentially a dose of truth serum added, because two of my characters are lying liars who lie.

Ahaha, something that will make me feel productive while I work on essaying at people at the Everything Meme up in Tatsumi's journal. ^_^;;
Note on Name: Enjolras has no canon given name. I've provided him with one because I'm assuming that he, you know, does have one, it just wasn't told to us. I do try to avoid using it, though, not only because he prefers not to use it, but because it's a rather big non-canon item to be using. Not that I'm. You know. In any danger of having to retcon it.
Age: 19 (was 18 when arrived in camp).
Birthday: 26 March, 1810.
Age and birthday have been retconned because I apparently couldn't do math on the day I calculated them.
Height: 178 cm (5'10"). (In canon, he is only specified as being "tall." In early 19th century Western Europe, 5'10" would be notably tall.)
Eyes: Extremely light blue.
Medical Info: An extremely normal human. No, really.
Physical traits: A soulful-eyed bishie. No, really. Here, have some canon.
He was angelically beautiful. He was Antinoüs, wild. You would have said, seeing the thoughtful reflection of his eye, that he had already, in some preceding existence, been through the revolutionary apocalypse. [. . .] He had a deep eye, slightly red lids, thick underlip, readily disdainful, and a high forehead. Much forehead in the face is like much sky in a horizon. Like certain young men early in this century and late in the last, who became illustrious in early life, he had an exceedingly youthful look, as fresh as a young girl's, though he had moments of pallor. [. . .] Had any grisette of the Place Cambrai or the Rue Saint-Jean-de-Beauvais, seeing this college boy's face, the body of a page, long fair lashes, blue eyes, that hair flying in the wind, rosy cheeks, pure lips, exquisite teeth, felt a desire to taste all this dawn, and tried her beauty on Enjolras, a surprising and terribly look would have suddenly shown her the great gulf, and taught her not to confuse Beaumarchais's dashing cherubino with this fearsome cherubim of Ezekial.HEY VICTOR HUGO DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY ABOUT HIM JESUS CHRIST. I really am tempted to give him his own, you know, hidden wind to blow his hair around in an aesthetically pleasing manner, but that might just be because I'm on crack whadduya think.
What's Okay To Mention Around Him/Her: Anything. No, really. He says that he doesn't want to be told history from his time through around, hm, maybe the late twentieth century, but if he finds out, he'll just have to deal. And really, he's generally pretty good at that.
Abilities: Intelligent, intuitive, observant, a good speaker, good with firearms, pretty intelligent with weapons in general... and really pretty. It's an ability, I swear. It's like with the elves in The Lord of the Rings, where everyone else is, like, "AAARGH MY GUTS ARE FALLING OUT AND I JUST SWALLOWED MUD" and he's just, like, "...is that a smudge upon my delicately well-defined cheekbone?" And in canon, apparently he can do this... "intimidating" thing, though it's visual and I haven't succeeded yet in figuring out a way to translate it into words. It's just like, hey, you pissed him off, TIME TO TURN ON THE SCARY. Or something. Way to go with the godmodding, V.H..
Notes for the Psychics: He's fairly straightforward, really. You'll find a lot in there about France.
Can I shapeshift/bodyswap/spit at/step on/etc?: For bodyswapping, drop me an e-mail, IM or PM me in IRC. For more minor things, though, just go ahead.
Maim/Murder/Death: Sure. The possibility of maiming or otherwise injuring is fine without permission -- if I think he'd ICly do it, I'll walk right into it. |D If you want to put him out for the count, a quick IM/PM/whatever would be great. I'll most likely say 'yes,' unless I planned to do something with him very soon.
Cooking: ...he won't starve? Don't depend on him for a good meal, though.
Kissing/Hugging: If you would ICly do it despite a person's body language, etc. very strongly discouraging such actions, go for it. He will hate you, though.
|A fount of compassion and common sense, you're Enjolras' right-hand man and occasional conscience. You may or may not wear glasses.|

MySpace Surveys, MySpace Codes and MySpace Layouts by Pulseware Survey Software
You are neither a subdued loner nor a jovial chatterbox. You enjoy time with others but also time alone. You are generally calm and composed, reacting moderately well to situations that most people would describe as stressful. A desire for tradition does not prevent you from trying new things. Your thinking is neither simple nor complex. To others you appear to be a well-educated person but not an intellectual. People see you as tough, critical, and uncompromising and you have less concern with others' needs than with your own. You set clear goals and pursue them with determination. People regard you as reliable and hard-working.
...the overview makes him seem so well-adjusted. But the full report fills out some things. Like "You enjoy some excitment and risk taking in your life" ... "Often you exhibit a readiness to challenge authority, convention, and traditional values" ... "Requests for help feel like an imposition on your time. You are not adverse to confrontation and will sometimes even intimidate others to get your own way. You feel superior to those around you and sometimes tend to be seen as arrogant by other people" ... "You often have a strong sense of direction in life, but may sometimes be too single-minded and obsessed with your work. You have strong will-power and are able to overcome your reluctance to begin tasks. You are able to stay on track despite distractions. You are not an overly cautious person. You will think about alternatives and consequences but make up your mind fairly quickly."
Enjolras's canon is this awesome work of literature that amazes me each time I read it. Sure, Victor Hugo could have used an editor like burning, but some of the digressions actually are interesting to me and the others -- well, it's one of those situations where you love something so much that you even love what drives you crazy about them. The characters have become archetypes (Valjean and Javert, in particular) and the story has been re-told in movies and on stage and in recordings. And I get to use it as my playground. Public domain, ftw. 8D
And Enjolras himself... oh, Enjolras. He's just a delicious puzzle to me. He is incredibly badass and he tops almost everyone in his canon (the big exception being History), but looking at him as a Real Live Boy turns that Very Model of a Modern Insurrectionist -- and he really is a leader, not just some ironically employed literary puppet -- into someone so complex and deeply human. Not to mention tragic. But canon itself allows us to laugh at him. And you just have to. Because dude. In the context of everyday life? The guy is so weird.
Which all adds up into him being a joy to play here. It's fun having a different voice -- something very non-contemporary and strictly defined by not just the character but by the canon. And a lot of that fun comes from him being so out of place. Just the juxtaposition of a Totally Serious character from a Totally Serious piece of Classical Literature being gender-switched and Inui-juiced and turning into The Mole from South Park at a zombie summer camp with a bunch of folks, many whose canons' media weren't even invented when he was written. But the reason that I can continue to play him beyond the "ahaha stuffy nineteenth-century dude in zombie camp" is because he was an unusual individual amongst normal people in his canon -- really, not that much different than here (except for the fact that he's more like an usual individual among more unusual individuals, ahah).
So overall? Enjolras is awesome -- he's smart, good with guns, has a commanding presence, keeps his cool and totally tops -- and he's awesome to play at CFUD.
I'M GLAD TO BE ENJOLRAS WITH Y'ALL. ♥

Yes. You are the angsty uke. Seldom smiling and probably persimistic, you are not likely to put in too much effort to give your seme pleasure. You probably have an unhappy past which you tend to brood on whether intentionally or not. Sometimes your angst tends to add unwanted weight to a relationship, but it also adds a certain level of excitement.
