|Bio:||This is a Roleplay journal for Remy LeBeau, a.k.a. Gambit, of X-Men. Canonically speaking, this Gambit is a simplified X-Men: TAS canon, with some elements of the 616 Canon added. Gambit DID infiltrate Weapon X ("Weapon X: First Class") and he WAS involved with the Morlock Massacre, albiet was not technically morally responsible. Otherwise, the canon is essentially X-Men TAS. This Gambit comes from after the final episode.|
Build: Athletically muscular
Eyes: Red irises, black sclerae
Gambit was raised as a theif on the streets of New Orleans. Abandoned at birth due to his red-on-black eyes, Gambit eventually became a member of the thieves' guild. He was exiled from New Orleans later, travelling the world whilst honing his skills. He rarely speaks about what happened after that, suffice it to say he has an extraordinarily dark past he wants to keep locked away.
Remy LeBeau is skilled in combat with a staff, as well as having a very high level of agility and strength. Additionally, he has the ability to 'charge' inanimate objects with kinetic energy, which renders that object explosive. He is also a perfect pickpocket and master thief, with a very charming personality.
Gambit is a playful, seductive flirt. He has been described as "narcissistic," "adrenaline-addicted" and "anti-authority." He loves to charm, play games (with cards or people's feelings), and socialize. He is so used to people faking relationships (of any kind) that he truly cherishes the opposite: the way to make Gambit like you a lot is to be honest and direct with him. However, as 'romantic' Gambit is, he tries to avoid giving in to his romantic streak. Every time he has said those "three little words," it changed their relationship and made the one he loved obsessed and possessive.
He absolutely hates being tied down (romantically) and possessive people. He had enough of that with Belladonna. Remy resents the social-politics vipers nest of guild wars and in-groups and all related phenomena. He's Remy LeBeau first and foremost, and all group affiliations are loose, and secondary.
Gambit has no physically sadistic tendencies. Yes, he will control and manipulate people, but only if he has to, and he prefers to use 'soft power' methods (seduction, charm, persuasion etc) to do so. His time playing guild politics in New Orleans has made him exceptionally skilled at manipulation, however. Stealth, cunning, deception and trickery are his primary weapons, physical confrontation is only used when necessary. He feels revulsion towards cruelty. To Gambit, the height of cruelty is what happened to Logan: Gambit was only young at the time, and broke into Weapon X's facility in search of someone's diary. He instead came across a series of subjects floating in tanks. None of them were subjected to the same experiments as Logan but it was obvious that what happened in that facility was extraordinarily cruel.
However people generally do not trust him. His past, his thievery, and his playful nature tends to make people think he is 'up to something.' Whilst Gambit can be manipulative, he is not malicious towards people generally and only wishes harm upon those that wish him harm. Of course, when he is in a situation where violence is necessary, he is inhumanly ruthless and does not fight fair. Years of faking feelings has made him quite cynical and detached when he needs to be. But that doesn't mean he likes being that way.
Probably Gambit's most obvious characteristic, apart from his compulsive flirting, is his fondness for sex (and lots of it). Whilst he refuses to do anyone he considers evil, he has few other requirements in a bedmate.
