June Year 1

Romeo's life changed once again as he travelled home from Milano. He had been back at home only a few days when he woke up in a strange bed, dressed in a white skin tight suit and a strange orange liquid filled collar around his neck. There were three strange adults in the room, all had just woke up there as well and there was a note. You're world has been destroyed, I saved you. Let's all be happy here.

It soon came apparant that no one knew what was going on. Had they been kidnapped? Had the world really ended? The tower was five floors high, a cafeteria, an infirmary, a library and a viewing station as well as a dormitory floor. Romeo kept his spirits up as much as he could and began exploring, it was in the first few days that he met Molly. A girl who would become an important friend. On the day they met they mostly agued about dinosaurs and read books and Romeo learned all about superheroes.

He also got very quickly used to the idea of different worlds, the fact that everyone spoke about things that he had no clue about, that magic and other storybook things exist and that some people were actually countries. He got a crash course in using computers as well, though he never particularly had enough patience to sit and use one for long.

A week or two into their stay in the tower they met the administrators; Riki, Dax, Jason and Zo the last of whom seemed a child not much older than Romeo. Romeo was given a job as a janitor, all the jobs in the tower were dangerous and the chemicals made him ill.

But all in all he learned a lot and made many friends. Then as the end of the month drew near some people disappeared... Their trunks emptied, no sign of them...

July Year One

On the 1st July the residents awoke to more floors! A high tech room, an indoor forest, a swimming pool and a maze. As well as a new dorm floor. What was strange and interesting was that the new floors appeared in between the viewing platform and the first dorm level. Odd things happened if they lingered on the new floors too long. But it didn't stop Romeo from exploring.

All the while dressed as a superhero called the Bird Prince because of Molly's influence! It is during this exploration that he met Ienzo, an eight year old who became another Important Person in Romeo's life. He was also convinced by the Doctor that the world hadn't ended and that the administrators were bad people who had lied to them. The maze traumatised him.

More people disappeared though, and they got more interesting food. It was Molly who came up with the horrifying theory that maybe they were eating people. She was reassured by adults but her and Romeo decided they needed to make a superhero team to beat the baddies and save everyone. Romeo believed her theory though and wouldn't eat for a few days, fearing he had eaten Fletcher who was one of his new friends who had disappeared. He was comforted and fed pancakes by Canada.
Near the end of the month Spain spent some time in her dead world (ooc: one of the hiatus options), she was upset when she returned and told Romeo about it. He realised that the worlds maybe really were gone and everyone he knew was dead and finally everything got to much for him and he cried... "But it was all too big, everyone he had ever met before he came here was gone forever and he would never see them again, he was stuck in this tower where people disappeared and probably end up served as meals."

After his small breakdown he decided that if the worlds were gone then the tower was a new world and they had to make sure everyone in it was safe and happy. He made it an oath to Spain, the first oath he ever made to an adult.

August Year One

At the beginning of August Molly and Romeo and some other likely superhero types decided to put to rest the question of if they are eating people once and for all and led an excursion into the walk in freezer. This got a bit sidetracked due to Romeo's general amazement at a thing so cold that ice grew in it. They found no people but still decided that the best course of action was to not eat meat.

Because everyone was sad because of people disappearing Zo decided to try and bring them all back. But it all backfired, the power went out and weird phantoms appeared. The dark was scary and Romeo did his best to avoid phantoms. It was an attempt that eventually failed though as he came across a phantom cat and suffered his first death.

However perhaps luckily for Romeo it happened quickly and when he woke up the next morning in his bed the last conclusion he would have came to was that he had died, he just put it down to strange things happening.

The phantoms were fixed, more floors got added including an outside floor, a cathedral, an aquarium and a planetarium where you could sit and watch endless worlds die.

Romeo spent the rest of the month exploring more and building a tree house in the forest. He found Nepeta who had previously gone missing, but she couldn't remember who he was. This led to him making his first ever network post announcing this new piece of information.

He ended the month with trying to make a cake for his friends, it ended hot cake mix exploding everywhere but he did make a lasting friendship with France out of it and she taught him how to bake properly. He used the new suggestion box to ask for rum so they could make lost bread. He handed out cake to his friends

He met Castial who was an angel and who told him that the world was not destroyed, so he changed his mind on that point. He also assured him that heaven was not destroyed and Romeo and Spain spoke in the cathedral about if God could still hear them, Spain reassured Romeo that he could.

September Year One

The month started well with the addition of ice cream to the menu and Molly introduced Romeo to it immediately. A few days later the first of many many experiments began. Many residents awoke with a strange leash connecting their collar to another persons. Romeo was connected to Vriska and Germany. It was the start of a beautiful hate friendship with Vriska. He also learned that people liked eating colours and so made sure his network posts were red (because that tasted the best).

When the leashes disappeared Romeo received a note saying: Thank you for participating in part one of our experiment. And the tower grew again. Another library, a study room, a media room, a bottomless pit and a room that was empty apart from bloody handprints and screaming.

He spent most of the rest of September helping new people. And spent his last few days as a mostly untraumatised child...

October Year One

Overnight Romeo, France (male), Milagro, Ψiioniic, Germany, Kanaya, Romana and Dean were taken by retrieval units, knocked out if they tried to fight and placed in a cell complex. He tried to keep his spirits up, talking about the blue skies of Italy with Romana, he even wondered with Kanaya if they were going to be sent back home, though deep down he didn't really believe that.

The next day he was taken away from his cell, the first to be taken.. He was taken by retrieval units and modified, his body becoming a hybrid of human and deer. They left him to 'recover' from his surgery.

"I'm sorry Alfredo," he whispered quietly, "I tried so hard, but I think the bad people won.

I couldn't follow your dreams for you." Tears ran steadily down his face, "The worlds are gone, Bianca probably died, I hope she is with you in heaven... There aren't even any blue skies here..."

A moment passed as his sobbing continued, "What do you do when you can't keep your spirits up..." He couldn't lift his arm, or leg, he didn't even want to think about it. He couldn't keep his spirits up if he didn't even have hands to punch the air with. "What do you do..." He fell silent as sleep finally took him away from the horror.

He was taken back to the cells the next day, he shouted that they were bad people as they took France away, he couldn't walk on his new legs, his antlers were heavy and was in shock. He thought it was a punishment for something he had done- the truth that they had done it just because they could was something so big that it took Romeo some years to come to terms with it.

Milagro told him that she was a superhero from the stars and she would stop the bad people. She fought when they took her but they still hurt her and experimented on her. On all of them.

Romeo became close with Psiioniic because they shared the same dream, of creating a free world. Though Psiioniic had long lost the battle in his world. They made a vow to find a world that wasn't destroyed and make a place with no bad people or slavery.

They were in the cells a week until they had all been modified and then they were let out into the tower itself. The rest of the tower were also being experimented on, their feelings were being modified, in groups of obedience, sensory, sloth and paranoia.

Obviously everyone was horrified, Ienzo was upset and Romeo tried to calm him down, Ienzo tried to help Romeo to walk again, Romeo got quite upset when he thought that Ienzo was scared of him and didn't want to be his friend anymore.

He found Molly, or rather Molly found him. She had been looking after Piccolo who had escaped when Romeo was taken. She encouraged him to talk about what had happened. She said she would go beat up the bad people and Romeo got scared that she would be hurt. They made a vow of eternal friendship.

Ventus leant him his hoverboard until he learned to walk properly so he could get around. France (the female one) also spoke to him about what had happened and Romeo realised that the deer had probably died and felt bad about that.

He tried to get back to normal, or as normal as life was. It was hard when he was a deer, he spent a lot of time crashing Ven's hoverboard and accidentally terrifying people. But he made sure to keep his spirits up and help his friends do the same, even though their feelings were being played with more and more.

Having decided that the animals, even the scary ones, were as trapped as the people Romeo did venture forth to try and tell them that everything was going to be alright, and got chased away. He also tried to help some of the people who were halucinating and met some new people. He also helped Kanaya and Dean, when their spirits were low.

Eventually the experiment came to a crux with all those whose feelings were effected having an urge to kill those that had been modified. He woke up to America, his roommate, trying to kill him. Romano who had not been effected fought America to protect Romeo and Romeo escaped. He soon learned that many people in the tower wanted to kill him. And soon found refuge with Psiioniic, who was also hiding from his friends.

They promised to protect each other. He also found Eiji who was not effected and acted as a bodyguard.

Then Molly found them. She was effected and she attacked them. Romeo didn't want to fight her because she was his best friend., Romeo shouted at her and tried to get her to stop. She knocked Eiji out. Romeo made a last ditch attempt to remind her of their vow. She wouldn't stop. So he died for the second time and this time he definitely realised it.

November Year One

Romeo woke up human, with a reward in his room. A puppet theatre. And a new roommate, Lloyd had disappeared and the Protoman was there in his place. He found Psiioniic and agreed to join Signless' rebellion. He became allies with Milagro and they vowed that no one would get hurt again. He tackle hugged Ienzo just because he could.

Coming back from death did make him doubt that God could really reach them in the tower though, because death should lead to heaven. He recieved the rum he had asked for and he and France made lost bread. He mostly worked on being braver in order to stop the bad people. He tried to adopt Ienzo's unversed, Ienzo's reward for the experiment, but it kept returning to Ienzo. He decided to make puppets for his theatre and finally faced Molly.

He promised her that he would remain her friend no matter how many times the bad people made her hurt him.

"We're gonna stick together and show the baddies that they don't scare us and they can't ever make us not be friends. And then we are going to beat them, and teach them what happens when they try and turn us against each other!"

Later that month he had his first proper encounter with a double of someone else from the tower. It went as ridiculously as could be expected and he spent a while thinking Ven no longer wanted to be his friend or had lost all his memories. As he learned about more worlds he learned there were worlds out there where children were not sold but could go to school and be free under the blue sky just like Alfredo's dream. It gave him hope.

Nearing the end of the month there was a glitch on the network and corrupted creepy files began being shown and heard. One of the audio pieces kept replaying help me, help me at Romeo and Molly and they tried to figure out how to help the voice, and how to stop it being trapped.

Things calmed a little over the next few days and Molly threw a party. Charles told him he should dance with Molly and so dancing happened.

The very next day Romeo met the Grand Highblood and annoyed him so much with his cheerfulness that the troll killed him. One day after that a message appeared on the network saying thank you for your patience, I have taken control of the tower, it was difficult but that's okay, I'll start sending people home in an hour, you should say goodbyes before then. Romeo and Molly said their goodbyes and prepared to leave.

Of course it was a trick. Romeo arrived in a world where his brothers barely acknowledged him, his mum was dead and his dad was dunk and sold him back to Luini because he was never his kid anyways. He and Molly managed to break out of the illusionary worlds and escape. It was revealed that the message had come from someone called Ruana and that the worlds had been created from their own minds.

December Year One

Once he was back he continued helping his friends and making new ones. Molly educated him on modern Christmas. He found an injured Grand Highblood and tried to help him get to the infirmary, not caring that the troll had killed him less than a month before.

At the end of the month the network showed Zo being punished for his attempts at saving the entire multiverse and bringing in phantoms. He was attached to some kind of machine, a hand stretched towards him and the room exploded.

All over the tower monsters began to flood in.

January Year One

All the tower shrank to just one floor whilst repairs happened, the residents and the monsters were all stuck in the one room and had to fight to survive. Romeo fought with Ienzo and Molly... or more accurately Molly fought and Romeo provided moral support.

Eventually they blacked out and awoke in their beds in a once again larger tower. With monsters. Monsters everywhere. The tower had gotten a lot more dangerous. It got cold, very cold. Romeo and Molly explored the new floors, new people came and Romeo befriended them.

Then near the end of the month Romeo couldn't find Molly. He looked for her and posted on the network asking where she was. He searched every floor with Ienzo but it turned out she had disappeared from the tower and he was heartbroken. He had a feelings Jam with Psiioniic, important as it was the first time Romeo first properly took his feelings, looked at them and spoke about them rather than pushing them away to keep his spirits up. Psiioniic also told him something that he kept with him all the rest of his time in the tower and beyond. He may be small and have no powers but he has a great ability to make friends, and those friends are big and some have powers. His power is the ability to make those friends and help them and to move people to help others.

Just over a week later he met a giant man called Fawkes who was making weapons and asked if he could teach him how to make a knife. He made a shiv, which was his weapon of choice for the next two and half years. A teddy bear also appeared on his trunk with a note saying he had been infected and had to play two games the next month to cure himself. Romeo called the bear Alfredo and looked after it.

February Year One

The first game was the Midnight Game, where residents were in groups in empty dorm corridors and they had to complete a ritual to escape. Romeo's group did so. Romeo mostly worked with Vriska (a different Vriska than the one he already knew) and it was yet another wonderful hate friendship.

Mostly unscathed Romeo returned to the tower proper and learned that he had a new roommate. Ghirahim- they got off to a rocky start when he told Romeo that he was a demon, and Romeo lectured him about being good. It ended with Ghirahim deporting Romeo down to the floor of blood and screaming and Romeo deciding that Ghirahim was a good person deep down.

Romeo continued on his quest to learn to fight the bad people and sought out teachers from around the tower. Franken Stein taught him how to use his opponents' weaknesses against them and fight hand to hand. Ven tried to teach him magic but it didn't really stick and he finally met Signless, Psiioniic's hero. He vowed to help Signless beat the bad people. Signless taught him how to fight with a weapon.

A little while later Ghirahim killed one of the Links and announced it so on the network. Romeo decided to move out of his room for a bit, but only for a couple of days because residents got sick if they didn't sleep in their own bed.

Then about half way through the month a temporary antidote to the infection appeared in the way of chocolates. However eating the chocolates affected their minds, leading them to fall jealously and bitterly in love with the next person they saw or fall in love with the monsters, or other potentially deadly effects.

Romeo ate a chocolate and started stalking L, who unfortunately had fallen in love with the monsters of the tower. This led to Romeo getting trapped by monsters and killed.

Then a few days later Molly returned! The reunion was heartfelt, Romeo summed up the last month.

No, well me and Ienzo got lost in the woods looking for you, and I got killed by monsters and we had to go round a tower that was like this but empty and there was a scary monster called Midnight Man chasing after us and trying to blow our candles out and you can't eat chocolate because it makes you want to do bad things like hurt people or make friends with monsters. Oh and there's a really mean demon living in my room, he killed someone and put blood everywhere so can I sleep in your room?

He got yet another roommate, Gamzee. He Gamzee and Ghirahim 'bonded', by which I mean the conversation shifted from lectures of good and evil to why Ghirahim wore makeup like a noble lady. To finally Ghirahim deciding that both Romeo and Gamzee needed an introduction to baths. So Romeo learned about showers, and miracles. Miracle showers and he got new clothes off Ghirahim. Who it turned out was clearly a good person after all.

Then on the last day of the month those with bears were taken to a strange apartment complex and instructed to play Hitori Kakurenbo, another ritual game this time hide and seak with murderous teddy bears.

They each had a communication device where they had to make a video or audio recording every few hours. They got two chances, if they were caught they could run, if they were caught again they either had to betray someone else or were killed. Most of the deaths were recorded by the communication devices.

So Romeo spent a lot of time hiding under a bed with Molly and John, helpless as his friends died in various gruesome ways. He also spent a lot of time whispering to France and trying to help Vriska keep her spirits up.

Ten hours in Molly was killed. In hour thirteen Vriska betrayed Romeo and John and they got eaten by spiders.

March Year One

Hitori Kakurenbo was notable as the first huge mass tower awful thing, and also because there were a lot of new people in the tower who hadn't been there in October. So there were a lot of very sad very scared people. Romeo was one of them but he also knew that they couldn't give up. He didn't have the shock of this being the first time he had been hurt horribly by the administrators, it was far from his first death. They had been hurt before and would be hurt again and just sitting around crying would not help stop the bad people. So he went on a mission to try and help everyone who was upset.

Of course it will be alright because we will make it alright okay! If we are sad and scared then that's what the bad people want and they will have won. We gotta keep going no matter how many times we die, and no matter what they do to us because they are big bullies and want us to be sad. They like it when we cry so we can't cry we just got to get up and keep living!

He saw this very much like when Alfredo died, an awful thing had happened but they had to keep going. So just like the black brothers had punched him to the floor so he could stand up again he tried to help everyone rise to their feet.

A few weeks into the month though some peoples collars changed, the colour was different and they began to feel strange and their powers went out of control. Romeo helped people as best he could, he wasn't affected himself. However at one point whilst trying to help Nanime he got memory reverted to being in Milano, right back when he was first sold to Rossi and had been accused of theft. It was only for a very short amount of time.

His helping people went a bit awry when he tried to help Minami and got killed by her out of control Persona. Molly disappeared again.

He also continued meeting new people. One of those people was Ken, a boy who was the same age as him and would become one of his best friends.

At the end of the month Willow hoasted a Friendship Affirmation party which Romeo attended.

April Year One

The month started with pranks. Pranks from the administrators that was, and so many were deadly. Luckily Romeo got away with being stained multicoloured by the swimming pool.

As part of his plan to help everyone he decided to make a group for all the children of the tower to work together and help each other. Vriska said it was a stupid idea and Ken wasn't sure if he could trust them and called Romeo too innocent to set up such a group. But there were people that wanted to join.

It was John's birthday and Romeo made him cookies, John told him about how cake was evil (but only cake from boxes).

A post appeared on the network asking what they were afraid of, they were compelled to answer it.

i guess that i am scared that the bad people are actually right. that the world really did end and everyone is dead. if it did end then this must be hell because heaven is really nice and alfredo is there. i guess that means i was bad... i'm scared that my friends will be hurt and that we will never ever escape, hell is meant to last forever isn't it? that all my friends here will be hurt again and again and i wont be able to stop it happening, because the bad people can do whatever they want to us.

i guess i'm scared that my friends from my world would come here, if it is hell. because they are all really nice and so should go to heaven and be with alfredo.

Ienzo disappeared around this time but Spain came back (without memories) and Shotaru returned with memories. At the end of the month Dax went on the network to tell them that they had a rota for being in charge of the tower, that it was Jason's turn next and to be careful

May Year One

People were rounded up and put in a labyrinth to fight to the death. Those that were not taken could watch on the network and could also help their friends by sponsoring them food, drinks, powers or warnings of other people coming. Romeo sponsored a lot of people to try and help everyone. The price for this was nightmares. Romeo had nightmares for the entirety of May, from vivid nightmares of his friends from home being tortured in the tower to seeing the world end, to learning it was his own fault. He knew that it was the bad people trying to hurt him for him helping his friends though and so he tried to keep his spirits up.

Zelda organised a group in the first few days to try and rescue them all, Romeo wanted to help but she wouldn't let him, saying he was a child and would jepordise the mission. Romeo was upset because his friends were getting hurt but she talked him into helping from the outside, watching so that he could communicate where people were.

Of course there was no way to do so, but it did mean that Romeo ended up seeing it all, all his friends dying and all their punishments- those that died were given punishments for the remainder of the event. The nightmares made everyone a little crazy, Gamzee tried to kill Ghirahim, Romeo fought him off, Ghirahim beat him up and Gamzee went on a murder spree, that made Romeo scared.

Jason posted to the network and opened the floor to questions. Romeo had some and he learned that people disappearing was by accident not design, those that came back without memories were actually identical seeming copies from other worlds. When people disappeared they went back to their dead world. As far as anyone knew they still wouldn't die. Gandalf warned him that Jason might be lying about a lot of things.Romeo wasn't sure whether to believe him or not but they were more answers than he had had before.

He spoke to Gandalf and explained about what he knew about Zo- which was not much. Except that he was concerned because Zo seemed young and though his bosses were the bad people that might not mean Zo was bad too... after all he had tried to bring everyone from home to save them and been punished for it. He promised to help Gandalf look after everyone.

He and Gamzee made friends again- or more Romeo apologised for fighting him and letting Ghirahim hurt him and played with Play-doh. There were rumours of a giant spider. Then whilst exploring he got attacked and killed by said giant spider and posted to the network when he came back that the rumours were true. And announced the first meeting of the bitty brigade. Many people told him to not be so blaze about being murdered. But it was far from his most traumatic death and it was his seventh death, it had lost it's sting.

The first meeting of the Bitty brigade went well, mostly them all meeting each other and failing to decide on a name for themselves or a leader, or any rules.

He had to deal with a France who was breaking down, he tried his best but found it hard when she wouldn't listen to him. He found more people new and returned. Roland trained him more in knife fighting.

A leaked network post showed the administrators fighting amongst themselves. Zo was getting upset at their arguing. So May turned into June Romeo's first year ended and he turned twelve.

June Year Two

The arguing between administrators turned into proper fighting. They each took a group and took part in challenges posed by Ruana, there were points for each challenge and the losing group of each challenge had to vote on someone in their group to die. The winning group's leader would be the leader of the tower.

Romeo was in Jason's group. People began being experimented on. Romeo tried to help people, because it had happened to him before, but it was hard when everyone was so sad and scared, when he was sad and scared. He was turned into a six legged moose type creature with antlers and three eyes.

Ken had been experimented on too and Romeo tried to stay strong for him, during their time in the cells Ken warmed to Romeo and they became friends.

At the end of the week Ruana announced winners and losers, each group had lost one and so votes were made for people to die. Most people refused to vote and plans were made to make sure that no matter what Jason did not win.

The deaths were announced, Ven was killed painlessly and efficiently by Dax. Suzaku was killed by exploding by Riki. England was killed by vivisection by Jason. Romeo was horrified and Ken came over to him and covered his eyes for him as Romeo had no hands. Romeo told him that he was wrong, that Ken should stab Jason in the face.

The second week there were additional challenges, like balancing beams. Romeo's second surgery included adding insctoid legs onto him so he could balance better. During this surgery (where he was awake but felt no pain) he told Jason that he was an evil person and would go to hell, that he would know how bad it was and how much he was hurting them and that hell lasted forever.

This was the month where Romeo learned to hate, not just be angry at the bad people who had stole them from their homes and tortured them, but to hate Jason and want him gone.

Somehow despite all their trying Jason didn't lost, he was only a point away from Dax at the end of the week. Romeo was angry because Jason was cheating. A large group of Riki's pod were killed for losing. Ken tried to attack Jason. Also one of the magical girls crushed her soul gem, Ruana was furious.

The challenge in week three was endurance, their cells got worse, monsters tried to claw their way in and they got no food. Romeo spent a lot of time talking in thin air, in the general belief that Jason could hear everything that went on. Telling him that he was a coward and a cheater and everyone else was braver than him.

Jason wasn't seen until the end of the week, he had stitches and blood on him. He was in a very bad mood, he attached them all to each other with tentacle type things until they were a massive tentacle blob thing.

Then it was time for the results. Jason had been disqualified, Dax was considered to not have given his group enough to endure and so Riki won. He would be in charge. For a month. Yes the entire thing had been to rule the tower for one month. Ruana announced that because they had been neglecting the tower itself the residents had been misbehaving. So Jason, Dax and Riki were going back to sort that out and she would be in charge of all the pods for the next week.

To make it all worse it was Ken's birthday, Romeo tried to comfort him as much as he could. He promised him cake when they got back to the tower proper, because Jason should not be allowed to ruin anyone's birthday.

During the fourth week Ruana made Jin do the surgeries. Romeo's consciousness was put into that of a rocking horse. During a conversation with Yu Romeo was told that anyone had the potential to be a hero, they just had to be brave. It didn't matter if they had powers or not. At the end of the week they had a wrap party, Romeo was still a rocking horse. So didn't do much.

Then they were returned to the tower, they got in an elevator and blacked out. However instead of waking up in the tower Romeo woke up on his destroyed world.

July Year Two

Romeo spent twenty days on his dead world, the only person alive, everything dead. Even the stars. The bad people had been right all along. It was near the end of the month that he finally retured to the tower. He found Piccolo who had been staying with Ken, checked on all his friends. He had been given Moby Dick as a gift off Zo for the event and he discovered that his puppet theatre had been destroyed. Ryoji helped him fix it.

The whole tower had a meeting to share information and try and work out how to escape. Romeo went and listened and gave information when he had it. At the very end of the month some people fell asleep and couldn't be woken up. Ken was one of them.

August Year Two

The sleeping people woke up. The second meeting of Bitties happened, Romeo finally made Ken his birthday cake. More people came this time and they nominated Leaders. Ken nominated Sayaka, Romeo nominated Ken and Sayaka nominated Romeo. Ken also suggested they all trained each other in weapons.

Then a space whale hit the tower. Something large and full of monsters hit the upper levels, everyone had to evacuate downwards as floors were destroyed and monsters destroyed floors. Romeo helped make sure all the kids evacuated, and helped other people too. He got very stubborn when people tried to stop him or treated him like a baby.

He finally snapped at Elian when he tried to make Romeo go and hide.

"I'm sorry Elian, just people keep telling me I'm not big enough and not magic or powerful so I shouldn't fight but these," he waved his arms, "Are all my friends and I've been here even longer than I was in Milano and though it's scary it's my home and I can't just hide and do nothing! I can't!"

Elian understood and also told him that Romeo's name meant pilgrimage, to not be contained in one place for long. He finally got down to the ground floor but then couldn't find Ken so went back to look for him. The administrators got rid of the monsters. New floors were added. Romeo helped fix things since everything was wrecked. He helped Gimli tidy up the workshop. He helped rescue a pigeon for Roland and they went to look for William, who had disappeared.

September Year Two

Ken announced a training session for all the under fourteen year olds of the tower. Romeo attended. Ken told him that his persona had changed and Romeo met his new persona. They trained in spears.

Later in September Romeo woke up in a body that was not his. He had been switched with Itachi. This was very strange, especially as as the month went on his memories began blurring with Itachi's until he could not be sure which things had happened to him and which things were part of Itachi. However after being a deer and a moose and a moose bug hybrid and a rocking horse being another human was not all that weird and Romeo mostly took it in his stride.

He met actual Itachi in Romeo's own body and they agreed that they needed to find a way to fix things. Lots of other people were swapped as well. Romeo spoke to Jason over the network who told him that it was an experiment to see how long it took for their bodies to break down due to the stress. Romeo told him he was bad and that he hated him.

He spoke to Enoch and discussed how they had to make Jason lose, so he would no longer find torturing them fun. Some smart people (who weren't Romeo) managed to find a way to get everyone back to normal. By this point all the memories of all the bad things Itachi had done were getting too much, but Romeo was able to be swapped back to normal.

Though the memories faded- he no longer got them mixed up with his own, they are still there like a story he once read. Itachi came to find him and they spoke, Romeo asked if Itachi was a good person and learned that it was all way more complicated than Romeo could really understand. Itachi told him though that he didn't want to be a bad person, and Romeo thought that was enough to make him not one.

They had a party to celebrate. It was Sayaka's birthday and Romeo got her an apple.

History: Romeo's Blue Skies

Since it is pretty ropey here is a history I wrote:

Romeo is a young boy who lives with his family in Sonogno, a small village in the alps. His family are poor but happy until a slave trader called Luini, or the God of Death comes into town. He has his sights on Romeo but his parents refuse to sell him. It is high summer and there are worries about the fact that it has not rained in so long, the harvest is going to be bad. It is the day of the annual pole climbing competition and Romeo is finally old enough to compete, he wins the competition even though he is smaller than the other boys but when he gets to the top he sees his family’s field burning.

He and his father manage to rescue some animals but the field is ruined, the family face starvation and yet still refuse to sell Romeo. Luini is the one who set the field on fire and he waits patiently for the family to crack. Romeo wants to help and instead of doing his chores he goes off to fish to see if he can catch some food for dinner, leaving his little twin brothers to do his chores. His father is angry and calls him a selfish baby, Romeo runs off. While hiding with his friend in a barn he hears some adults talking about how they are surprised that Roberto (Romeo’s father) didn’t just sell him since he wasn’t his real son, and he had to provide for his two real children.

Romeo is devastated and doesn’t believe them, his mum finds him and tells him that it is true. Romeo was two years old when she met and married Roberto but he has always thought of Romeo as his son, in fact when Romeo was very little he had a fever and everyone thought he would die. Roberto tried everything to save him and eventually entered a church for the first time and prayed. Romeo’s fever broke that night and Roberto decided it was an act of God and bought the church a stained glass window with money he saved up over two years.

Romeo and his mother go back home and the family decide that they are strong together and they will just need to be strong to make it through winter, but then Roberto collapses, his head wound from fighting the fire has made him ill. They cannot afford a doctor. Luini tries once again to persuade Romeo’s mother to sell Romeo. She refuses.

Romeo finds his little brothers in the church praying and they tell him they have gathered some money to pay for a doctor, it turns out to be one coin and a mish mash of buttons, but his brothers say they will work hard to try and raise money.

Romeo realises there is very little hope of anyone earning 30 franks to pay for the doctor and his father is going to die. So he approaches Luini. Luini tells him he will be sold in Milano as a chimney sweep and will work there for six months before being allowed to go home. Romeo signs the contract. Later his friend over hears a woman explaining to her son that no children who go off to the city ever return. Romeo is scared but just tells her not to tell his parents.

A doctor cures his father and his parents are upset with what he has done, but understand why and are thankful. Romeo leaves with the God of Death. They make there way to a town, but Luini drops Romeo off in the road telling him to be at a certain inn in the city by sunset the next day. While taking shelter in a cave Romeo realises he has a stowaway, his weasel Piccolo.

He arrives in a village and a trader accuses him of stealing apples, a blonde boy who uses logic to explain why Romeo could not be the thief rescues him, the man apologises and gives Romeo two apples. Romeo runs after the boy to thank him and peruses him until the boy accepts one of the apples. He follows him to the town and learns that the boy is Alfredo and is also going to Milano as a chimney sweep. They spend the day in town before going to the inn.

There they find a cellar full of frightened children who want to escape, Romeo and Alfredo try and persuade them not to- since they all agreed to this after all but they try anyways, they get caught and are put on a boat to travel across the river in a storm. The boat tips and Romeo and Alfredo manage to cling onto some driftwood. Romeo spots the God of Death and rescues him. They spend the night in a cave, Alfredo tells Romeo that he and his sister have ran away from bad people and Alfredo sold himself as a chimney sweep to keep Bianca safe. The next morning Alfredo tells the God of death that Romeo rescued him. Luini gets a carriage and takes the two boys to Milano, assuming the others have drowned.

They arrive at an inn in the city where they are left in a corner but talk to Nikita, a boisterous young girl who thinks they are idiots but explains to them what is happening. Chimney sweep bosses turn up and argue since there are only two boys to chose from. A man named Rossi buys Romeo for 85 lire and a creepy man called Citron buys Alfredo.

The men drink and the two boys talk, they decide to make an oath of eternal friendship to be friends always even when fate keeps them apart. However Citron drags Alfredo away before they are finished the oath. Romeo runs after them, with Rossi chasing him believing that he is running away. They finish their oath and Romeo goes with Rossi to his new home.

Rossi’s mouth is furious with how much Romeo cost and he is left in the darkness while the family eats, when he asks for food she gets angry and Rossi takes him to his room, which is more like a cage. There is a mysterious room in the house, one that he is not allowed into but which he hears beautiful music coming from. The next morning Romeo starts to learn his job, he falls out of his second chimney and is knocked unconscious but still tries again. At the top he finds himself on the roof looking over the beautiful blue skies of Milano. Rossi is happy and goes to the bar drinking away all their earnings. His wife Edda is furious especially after Anzelmo their son explains how he heard that Romeo passed out earlier in the day and Romeo is again given no food.

Locked once again in his cage room Romeo tries to keep his spirits up but finds it difficult. Piccolo finds a box and inside it Romeo is shocked to find bread and cheese he hears the music again and decides there must be an angel in the room, who has given him this food.

The next morning Piccolo is chased by a cat but rescued by the angel, who turns out to be a little pale girl with dark hair. Romeo and Rossi clean the chimney of a doctor named Doctor Casella and when they are done the doctor gives Romeo a book as a thank you gift. Romeo explains that he can’t read and the doctor teaches him how to write “What is your name? My name is Romeo”, the book is a picture book and doctor Casella tells him he can visit again to learn more.

Back in his room he finds another present from the angel; more food and a note. He cannot read the note but by comparing the note with the words the doctor wrote in his book he realises that the last line is “what is your name?”

He manages to write his reply on a scrap of paper and breaks out of his cage and slips the note under her door. He gets another note that he can’t read in return but the next day manages to find the doctor and get him to read it to him. It tells him that when everyone is asleep she will signal him with her music box and he should go quietly to meet her in her room.

He does so that night and learns that the girl is Angeletta, she is very sick and so cannot leave her room but watches the world through her window and sketches it. She has drawn many pictures of Romeo and as he tells her about the Blue Skies over Milano she wishes very much to see them. Romeo attempts to bring her the blue skies. He cannot draw but he keeps trying and finally brings her a symbol that lets her imagine the vast blue sky.

Anzelmo is attempting to learn Romeo’s secret, he is a member of the Wolf Pack a group of bullies who go around beating up chimney sweeps and other kids. Nikkita is also a member of the Wolf Pack. They knock Angeletta’s drawings off a roof and steal Romeo’s letters. But this backfires when Angeletta accidentally hands Romeo a page of her diary instead of a note and in it she is writing about how Anzelmo is lying to the wolf pack. Anzelmo gets beaten up and Romeo goes to avenge them (believing that he and Anzelmo have made a pact because it makes Angeletta upset that they don’t get on)

However Anzelmo hates Romeo and while he is fighting the Wolf Pack Anzelmo frames him for theft, hiding coins in his room. Angeletta sees but works herself into a fever and so cannot tell her parents. When Romeo gets home he is locked up and told the police are coming. He is scared and so escapes onto the roof. He gets into another fight with the Wolf Pack but gets rescued by a strange masked kid who turns out to be Dante, one of the children believed drowned in the river. With Dante’s help he gets onto a cart he believes is going to Venice but Nikita tells Dante that its actually going to the prison. Too late though and Romeo ends up in the prison. The cart he got onto belonged to criminals who fill the prison with gunpowder and free one of the prisoners. They lock Romeo up but he manages to escape. However Rossi has gone inside the police station and Romeo knows it is going to blow up so he runs into warn everyone.

The prison blows up and Romeo is injured, Dante and Nikkita tell the police about the criminals and they are caught. The truth comes out and they learn that Anzelmo framed Romeo. Rossi talks to Romeo and tells him that even though he still works for him he is free, he will take the bars off his room and he may be friends with Angeletta.

With his newfound freedom Romeo meets some other chimney sweep kids, learning that all the children off the boat survived and were brought later to Milano by the God of Death. He also finds the whereabouts of Alfredo and goes to find him. He finds him in Saint Babilo church and the two are happy to see each other again. They talk about the wolf pack and how they need to band together in order to be safe from them. They decide to make an alliance of chimney sweeps. They decide to meet on Friday night and tell all the chimney sweeps they know to sneak out and meet them.

They meet outside the church and go into a secret base used by resistance fighters against Napoleon. They decide that Alfredo is their leader and they make an oath. They call themselves the Black Brothers because they get black from soot and it is proof of their hard work. They light candles as they swear the oaths by the flames of courage to help each other out and pool their strength, to obey their leader and to not reveal their hideout to anyone.

The next day they plan their attack on the Wolf Pack, they decide to lure them into an ambush and teach them once and for all not to mess with them. Romeo is childish because he wants to lead the battle but listens to Alfredo. After the meeting he realises he has forgotten his bag and Piccolo at the hideout so goes back. He apologises to Alfredo for being stubborn and admires the fact that Alfredo can read a whole book. The book is falling apart and it is the only one Alfredo has. Romeo takes him to visit Doctor Casella who lends him a book, the doctors maid remarks to Romeo how grown up and mature Alfredo seems and Romeo decides to try and be just like him. He decides to read a book.

He starts to read the picture book he was given, a book about a donkey. He finds it very hard, at the same time Alfredo is reading Voltaire. The other boys tease Romeo about reading. He reads all day and all night and the next day and the next night but finally finishes. Alfredo’s boss gets angry and throws the book Alfredo rescues onto the fire, Alfredo rescues it but a couple of pages are burnt. He rewrites them from memory and doctor Casella is impressed by his ability.

The day of the fight comes and the Black Brothers beat the Wolf Pack. They learn Nikita is a girl and she and Alfredo argue. She then tells the Wolf Pack that the only way to get the Black Brothers back is if they are without their leader as he is the mastermind, they make plans to kidnap Alfredo. They capture they youngest Black Brother Michaelo and leave a note saying that Alfredo is to give himself in. He and Romeo go to do the exchange, Alfredo forbids Romeo from fighting them and he is taken by the Wolf Pack. Romeo and Michaelo try and persuade the others to help rescue him. At first they are too scared and Romeo says he will fight them alone. But when dawn comes they join him to rescue their leader. Angeletta gives Romeo a cross necklace to protect him.

The fight is brutal and Alfredo shouts for it to stop, he and Giovanni, the leader of the Wolf Pack agree to a one on one fight between Tachioni, the biggest of the Wolf Pack and Romeo. The fight is fierce and then Tachioni pulls a knife. However the sun comes out and the light reflects from the cross and blinds the bigger boy. Romeo wins and Alfredo is free. Romeo is a hero and they all sing their song ‘Pure Heart’.

On Angeletta’s birthday Romeo sneaks a few of his friends into the house and they give her an apple and sing their song for her. Rossi catches them but is not angry. Angeletta becomes an honorary Black Brother. However the boys learn that Angeletta is not Rossi’s daughter, but the child of a lord who died. Her grandma Isabel pays Rossi and Edda to look after her. Angeletta’s dream is to meet her grandma.

Romeo follows Rossi to Lady Isabella’s house; she believes that Angeletta just wants her money, to be allowed to inherit and so refuses to see her. Romeo is angry and reveals himself arguing that Angeletta is pure and would never do anything like that. Isabel asks what he is prepared to swear this on; when Romeo answers his life she pulls out a gun. Even in face of this Romeo does not back down and tells her she can shoot him as long as she believes him and sees Isabel. She doesn’t shoot him but refuses to see Angeletta.

Angeletta’s condition is worsening and it becomes her last wish to see her grandma, the Black Brothers decide to take her. They find a cart and sneak into Isabella’s mansion with Angeletta, even when faced with her granddaughter Isabella is cold and tells her to go away. Angeletta gives her music box to her. Her and Romeo go to the church to pray and Angeletta gets very ill. Edda is angry and Romeo goes to find doctor Casella.

There is nothing he can do, Angeletta needs treatment and needs to go to Paris for it. They don’t have enough money though Rossi goes to ask Isabella again to see Angeletta she refuses. By now the Black Brothers have taken matters into their own hands and blocked up all the chimneys in the house. They sit outside, on strike and tell her what a bad grandmother she is. Romeo turns up and tells them to stop because Angeletta loves Isabella and wouldn’t want them to do this. He also tells them that Isabella is lonely but Angeletta loves her. Isabella finally changes her mind. She visits Angeletta and decides to take her to Paris to find a cure.

A few days later nobles begin to come into the city because the grand duke is getting married. Romeo goes to meet Alfredo to give him a book from doctor Casella and they make another oath, this one to grow up and realise their dreams together; to create a world where all children can be free and learn. Later while cleaning a chimney in a hotel Romeo finds a girl escaping, it is Bianca Alfredo’s sister. She escapes into the city and is perused. Romeo finds Alfredo and Alfredo tells him their story.

They are children of nobles but their evil aunt and uncle burnt down their house, killed their parents and now is after Alfredo as he has the family seal. Alfredo had left Bianca with a farmer’s family but their aunt and uncle must have found her. The Black Brothers make a plan to rescue her. It fails at first and the uncle finds out where Alfredo is hiding. He goes to get the seal but Alfredo manages to escape. The Black brothers manage to save Bianca and the two are reunited. But Alfredo collapses and is taken to doctor Casella’s. He wakes up, the doctor tells him he will be all right but Alfredo makes him tell the truth and asks him to look after his friends when he is gone. Doctor Casella tells him that Bianca can live with him from now on.

Alfredo decides to go back to his Padrone as his contract hasn’t finished yet and leaves a note for doctor Casella asking him not to tell his friends about his illness. Alfredo and Bianca go to the secret hideout where their friends are waiting anxiously. Alfredo tells them about the seal and his aunt and uncles plans and they make a plan to sneak into the palace and tell the king the truth. Bianca becomes another honorary member of the Black Brothers.

They stake out the palace and make clothes for Bianca and Alfredo to wear. Bianca gets jealous of Alfredo and Romeo’s friendship and Alfredo explains to her why Romeo means so much to him and how he hopes they will be friends.

Giovanni tries to fight Alfredo, but learns that he is ill and they agree to fight when Alfredo is better, Alfredo and Nikita meet and Alfredo tells Nikita she will look pretty with a flower in her hair, she gets angry at him again but Alfredo coughs blood and she realises how sick he is. The Wolf Pack not realising why Giovanni is so angry decide to capture Alfredo for him telling him that Bianca is in trouble.

Romeo goes to rescue him and Nikita and Giovanni learn what their friends have done and are angry. The Wolf Pack catch up to Romeo and Alfredo and Romeo helps Alfredo escape, staying to fight the Wolf Pack alone. They beat him up and Giovanni demands to know why Romeo defends Alfredo so much. He tells them that it is because Alfredo makes everyone around him feel bigger and braver; whereas Giovanni makes his friends obey him through force. Nikita stands up for him and tells them that Alfredo has the same illness that killed Giovanni’s father. Romeo is angry and upset but he makes a deal with Giovanni that they finish the fight the next night, because he has to be at the palace to protect Alfredo no matter what. Giovanni suggests a truce and they decide to team up, Wolf Pack and Black Brothers together to help Alfredo.

Meanwhile Alfredo meets up with Bianca and the Black Brothers and they begin their plan. They begin to sneak in and are stopped by one of Alfredo’s uncle’s bodyguards. Giovanni saves them. The Wolf Pack and Romeo turn up and tell the Black Brothers about their truce. They fight more bodyguards with rocks and soot bombs. Nikita, Romeo, Alfredo and Bianca make their way into the palace while the others keep guards away.

They are almost at the feast when their uncle catches them, he tells them he doesn’t need the medal any more because he has a replica but that he is going to kill Alfredo. Romeo jumps in front of Alfredo and Nikkita knocks the uncle off balance, but Alfredo and Romeo fall off the balcony. Satisfied that at least one of them died the uncle goes to meet the king.

Bianca and Nikkita find Romeo and Alfredo and they rush off to meet the king. They get caught by some of Alfredo’s uncle’s guards but Lady Isabella rescues them. She explains to everyone who Bianca and Alfredo are, Michealo had found her and explained everything and pledges to help them.

They go into the receiving room as the aunt and uncle are talking to the king and explain that the medal is a fake. They are proven right because the kings father had made scratches in the back of the medal as a benediction in thanks that Alfredo’s father saved his life, the aunt and uncle didn’t know about this and so Alfredo was proven to be right.

The Black Brother, Giovanni and Nikkita wait vigil in the snow wondering if their friends will come back once they are accepted once again as nobles. They go back to the hideout Romeo tells the Black Brothers that if Alfredo goes home with Bianca that’s fine because he deserves happiness. Alfredo returns to them, because this is his home and they are his friends. They all go back to their houses and Bianca after a little bit of complaining goes to doctor Casella.

Alfredo and Romeo go to the church to thank God for the nights successes, Alfredo is weak and he realises he is close to dying, he and Romeo talk and he tells Romeo he is going to be reunited with his parents. He dies in Romeo’s arms telling him to keep going, to fulfil the dreams that Alfredo could not and to look after Bianca.

Romeo is devastated, his mind fogged with grief he cannot even bring himself to get out of bed the next morning, he walks around in a daze and slowly the Black Brothers, as well as the Wolf Pack learn about Alfredo’s death. Bianca is taken to see her brother’s body and as she cries she remembers his words about trusting Romeo. Dante finds Romeo and asks him to be the leader of the Black Brothers but Romeo refuses, he is too sad and too tired. He doesn’t want to accept Alfredo is dead, he doesn’t want to give him a funeral and he doesn’t want to take his place. Dante gets angry and hits Romeo; he doesn’t fight back and just repeats that he can’t do it before running away.

The next day Dante is angry and he meets Nikkita. They talk about how Alfredo never gave up, how he fought for his life. Nikita jumps into the icy cold river shouting to fight, Dante realises what she is doing and jumps in as well. They go to the hideout and tell the Black Brothers that they have to get up stop crying and fight because Alfredo would never accept them like this. Nikita helps them write a letter to Romeo telling him that they challenged him to a fight. If he won he would be their new leader, if he lost they would cast him out of the Black Brothers.

When he arrives Dante hits him and tells him if he doesn’t stand up to them they don’t accept him as a friend of Alfredo’s. They tell him they need him and tell him to stand up. Bianca turns up and adds her voices to the Brothers; Alfredo always spoke about how brave he was; now he had to prove it. Romeo remembers Alfredo’s words before he died, and the words of their vow of eternal friendship. He gets up realising that Alfredo will always be with him. Dante tells him to hit him, so that he can get back up too. He becomes the leader of the Black Brothers and they set about raising money to pay for Alfredo’s funeral.

On a day where the sky was as blue and clear as crystal they hold the funeral, with each child and friend of Alfredo giving him something precious, Romeo gives him his hat and starts to sing Pure Heart, the others join in.

Romeo is leader of the Black Brothers for the remaining few months that he is a chimney sweep, in this time he learns more about leading, and being a great friend. Just before Christmas he falls of a roof and breaks his leg, doctor Casella takes him in while he can’t work and while Romeo is there he begins to learn a great deal of things. He reads Mobey Dick and his love of learning becomes stronger. Romeo and Bianca decide to express their gratitude through a puppet show and Bianca announces that she wants to stay with doctor Casella instead of returning to her relatives and to be a doctor when she grows up and doctor Casella agrees to help her, Romeo announces that he wishes to be a teacher, and help children so they can grow up and learn and be free.

Finally the end of the six months has come and the Black Brothers are free to go home. Before them no child has survived their stint of being a chimney sweep, out of all of them only Alfredo will not leave the city alive. It is a bitter sweet time when Romeo and his friends say good bye and Romeo realises how much he has grown and how he will miss the city, the rooftops, and even Rossi who has become like a father to him. He even offers a peace present to Anzelmo.

As they are leaving they see Luini, herding a new group of boys into the inn and they feel sadness that others have to go what they went through, and hope that they boys are as lucky in their friendship as they where. They go to visit Alfredo’s grave for a last time and find Nikkita, with a flower in her hair. Giovanni and the Wolf Pack come to say goodbye and Romeo asks for one last favour. He asks that the Wolf Pack and Black Brothers join forces for good and to live in peace with the new chimney sweeps that are brought to the city. They swear a peace pact on Alfredo’s name in front of his grave another step to creating Alfredo’s world where children learn and live in freedom.

Doctor Casella drives them part of the way home they take a final look over Milano and the boys finally return to their villages. Romeo is reunited with his family. Romeo works while going to school and realises his dream of being a teacher becoming a light to help the poor and weak. He marries Bianca and they have a son, naming him Alfredo. Romeo keeps working and keeps striving towards the day where all children will run free under the Blue Skies.

Personality: "A truly strong person will neither strike nor begrudge another. A truly strong person is someone who always has the strength to be kind to others." These are the words of Romeo’s father and it is a ideology that Romeo believes in. Romeo always does the right thing, even when it would make his life easier to do the wrong thing or to simply do nothing at all.

This is an eleven year old boy who sold himself into slavery to save his sick father, who almost drowned saving a slaver, who ran into a building that he knew was about to explode to warn the police men and his master, a man who had let him be starved, hurt, locked in a cage and arrested for a crime he knows he did not commit.

Romeo always tries to protect his friends; he is prepared to give his life for any of them and most of all for Alfredo. He often forgets that he can be hurt, or simply doesn’t care. This leads to him doing reckless things in order to help his friends, jumping in front of heights, in front of bullets, into rivers. He is prepared to die to prove that Angeletta is a pure hearted person.

However Romeo is not physically strong, he gets stronger in his time as a chimney sweep, and becomes good a climbing. However his method of protection is to stand between his friends and those that try to hurt them and hope his friends manage to escape before the threat is finished beating Romeo to the ground. He even fights those who are much bigger and stronger than him, but he also knows that peace is better and finally manages to secure a everlasting peace pact between the Wolf Pack and the Black Brothers.

Romeo has a love of learning, before going to Milano he could not read but when he left he was harbouring dreams of becoming a teacher. His dreams are very important to him because they are also Alfredo’s dreams, which were past on to him when Alfredo died. His biggest dream is to help create a world where all children run free under the Blue Skies.

It is difficult for Romeo to trust adults as he has come to expect cruelty from them, but he is well behaved and obedient and when you have won his trust you have it forever. He is a loyal friend and despite all the hardships he endures he always keeps his spirits up and helps others around him do the same.

Romeo works very well with others, he respects good leaders, who rule with respect and not fear when put with a group of others of his age he would come out as a natural leader but he keeps his opinions to himself when around adults. He also makes a very good second in command, especially at this canon point where he has only been second to Alfredo and hasn't became the leader yet.

He is full of enthusiasm for life and whatever he does he knows that Alfredo is always with him and that gives him the strength to carry on. He stands up for the truth and hates to be accused of things he did not do. He often has trouble understanding why others are hateful or want to hurt others.

For the most part Romeo’s worldview is very clear-cut. Good people are kind and help those around them; bad people hurt and are nasty to others. People who are outside of this binary of good and bad, or who are mixtures of both confuse him, as it is not something he has come across before. He is Christian, because he is a peasant child from early 1800’s Italy, his religion is just another aspect of his life because all those around him are also Christian. He has a strong belief in heaven and finds tranquillity in churches.

Debt: To bring Alfredo back from the dead in good health. I imagine that's got quite a hefty cost, Romeo is happy to pay it.

Previous Game Info: N/A

Inventory: (1) A brown shoulder bag. (2) A picture book in Italian about a donkey, on the inside cover it says "What is your name, my name is Romeo" (happy for that to be removed/scribbled out if he was to regain that item). (3) A white shirt, very grubby. (4) Grey patched trousers. (5) A green coat. (6) A neckerchief (7) Brown shoes. (8) A white weasel called Piccolo

Abilities: Infinite hope: No matter what happens no matter how bad things get Romeo has the ability to get through it and keep his spirits up. This is traditionally done by punching the air repeatedly until he feels he can continue.
Climbing: Romeo is a good climber, he only falls down a couple of chimneys in his time in Milano and he wins the pole climbing competition in Sonogno.
Hard worker: He has spent a year as a chimney sweep, he is used to long days and hard work and so despite his age will not find working to repay a debt strange or too hard.
He is also a very strong swimmer. He is able to rescue a grown man from a lake in a storm in the middle of the night.

Strengths and Weaknesses:

Strengths

(1) He is very resilient. He doesn't let anything keep him down for long, physically or mentally. Giving up is not part of his vocabulary and he is not all that keen on letting others around him give in either.

(2) Being contracted to work for the repayment of a debt is pretty much his canon. So he will settle very easily, especially if he believes he has saved Alfredo. He is a very hard worker.

(3) His is very friendly. Though he will be wary of adults at first if people are kind to him he will repay that kindness tenfold. This is a strength because when things get dangerous the more friends a tiny eleven year old can have the better!

(4) He works really well with others, he understands how teamwork can make things easier. He believes people are better together than apart, and is able to bring peace between the Black Brothers and their rival gang.

(5) He is tougher than he looks. He never actually dies in canon despite the insane things he does, he is able to survive hardships and can sometimes hold his own in a fight (for a short while anyways...)

Weaknesses

(1) Romeo is an underfed eleven year old with the strength to go with it. He can climb and is energetic but he's not going to win a strength competition, or a fight.

(2) Lack of education. Romeo at canon point has learned to read but the full extent of his education is being taught to read by a dying ten year old... He has potential but it has not been realised yet. He knows nothing of the world outside of Sonogno and Milano and though he is not stupid he is definitely not as smart as you would expect and eleven year old to be, especially since...

(3) He comes from 1843. He has seen a steam train once and even that was a big deal. Any thing that is outside of his understanding will confuse him at first, from any semblance of technology, to modern values.

(4) A lack of self preservation. Romeo forgets that he is small and weak, especially when it comes to protecting those he cares about. Or he simply believes that him being hurt is worth it if others are saved. This gets him hurt and in trouble a lot.

(5) He can be very childish, if he doesn't understand a situation fully he can jump to childish conclusions and get upset about it. This can lead to misunderstandings or him doing dangerous things to prove a point.

Romeo returns to his world, Piccolo/Pinnochio in tow. Back to his families farm in Sonogno, back to his mountains, to his brothers and his parents. Alive and well.

His parents think he has been touched by some kind of spirit the way he babbles. So he stops, he realises that to his world it was merely a hiccup, it is restored and it is safe and they don't need to know the sacrifices made to make it that way.

He tells his brothers though, they sense he is different, that he is older than he looks. He keeps out most of the horrible things but he tells them of the people he knew, of the heroes and the friends he made. Of Ken and Molly, Ienzo and especially of Zo.

He goes to school, he tells doctor Casello of his dreams to make the world a better place and the doctor helps him, tutors him. When he's not at school he helps make his village safer. He teaches the children what he knows and he sets up a system of emergency food and fuel in case of harsh times. His aim is that no child from his village at least is sold.

He meets up with Dante, Dante believes him as well as does Bianca. They work together to help other villages and Bianca, with doctor Casella's help starts a clinic in Milano, where those with no money can come and get treated. She is still only a student doctor but with help she manages to help some of the poorest in the city.

He grows more and goes to university, winning a scholorship with doctor Casella's help. He begins to look into the legality of the God of Death and other slavers.

Bianca's clinic grows, it gets added to with children who have no where else to go, Romeo and Dante work there full time and it becomes an orphanage, a drop in centre. A place of safety where children can be children and run free under the blue skies. Where the kind of horrors that Romeo have seen and endured are never allowed to happen.

He and Bianca get married and have children of their own, a boy who they name Afredo and a little girl who they call Zo. It's an odd name but Romeo is insistent, and Bianca who believed his story from the beginning knows why.

Bianca is the only one he tells the whole story to, and only when they are older does he fully disclose the full horror of what happened.

It's a couple of months after he returns that he finds the door to the tower, and he learns how to worldhop quickly. He never stays away from his world for long, but visits his friends as often as he can.

He also rewrites the Hero book and when it is finished he takes it to the mini tower, leaving it there with Zo's treasures.

"Some of the greatest heroes in this Tower are the ones who haven't done anything dazzling and famous. Instead, they've done small, necessary things to make this place into somewhere that people can really live together — like the person who knitted the things I've left you and asked me to make sure they get to children, or the people who devote themselves to quietly protecting others who can't protect themselves. Maybe their efforts are more modest, but that doesn't make them any less important or deserving of praise!

I won't mention any names, because most of those people are the kind that don't want thanks or attention for what they've done, but please make note of how important they are somewhere, okay?"
Claudia Kotomine

My name is Romeo. I live in a tower which is in a world a long way away from my world. My world was destroyed by something bad, as were lots of others and this world is all dead but there is this tower and people live here.

its not a nice place though, reel bad things happen. We dont have a long time left before all the power gose out. When that happens we will all die, for real die not lik when we die now and wake up again.
Maybe thow we will be able to stop it. we are just souls but we might get our bodies back and fix our worlds

a reely brave man called Rick has died alredy. he was a tru hero. There are lots of tru heroes here and this book is all about them. If we live I will take this book and show everyone how brave all my frends were. If we die it will stay here but maybe someone else will find it and then they will know.

the pictures that are drawed in this book are by my frend Zett. He's a demon but a really nice one. He's gone now though so not all the pages have drawings.

I asked lots of people who they thought their best heroes was here. I got lots of answers. Alot of the people i asked said that they thought everyone was a hero. Rick the very brave man who died thort the same.


He said "It would be impossible to pick just a handful of people out of everyone with us - and everyone who was here before us. Despite loss, dissension, pain and fear...no matter what we hope to do when we get back...we're all fighting for the same thing, and we're all fighting together. And the fact that we can overcome everything that's happened here...I think that's more wonderful than words."

I fink think its wonderful too and Rick was a big hero, lots of people thought so. Veronica said that he was one of the best people in the tower because he is nice and will always help you and Yotsuba really liked him too because he could turn into a kitty and be soft and squishy.


I don't reely know how to write all this down, i have lots of letters and i have so many fings I want to rite about but i dont know lots of words and zett was helping me and hes not here anymore.

I fink I will make a page for everyone and write down all the things people wrote, or maybe I will stick the letters in and the pictures Zett drew.

Everyone (6)

"I don't have any "hero" in the tower. I have friends but I don't think I could pick one out as a hero. I think everyone in this tower who doesn't give up are heroes in their own special ways! Anyone who fight to see their world restored and the people they love in fact." Doctor Emmett L. Brown

"Some of the greatest heroes in this Tower are the ones who haven't done anything dazzling and famous.

And the fact that we can overcome everything that's happened here...I think that's more wonderful than words." Patrick Dawn

"I think almost everyone here is a hero in their own way! :)" V/V

"Romeo, I could keep going. I alone could probably fill your book for you because of one simple fact. When it comes down it it, everyone in this Tower is a hero. Not all of them seem like it. Not all of them want the title, but all of them, as some point or another, have found themselves helping someone else in this fight against the Administrators. Helping them, when they did not need to. Helping them, when someone else might have walked away.

All light has shadow and all shadow has light. The Administrators cast a dark shadow, and we--all of us--are the light."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne


"Anyone who fights against all odds, who stands up for what is right even if staying silent is easier. They are the true heroes and everyone here fulfills those criteria" Shion

Members of Pandora

"They're brave. It takes a brave person to go up against a force like the administrators, and it takes brave people to follow them.

I don't know who founded Pandora, but it doesn't really matter. They're trying to save all of us. Not that there's anything wrong with the people who don't know how to, but Pandora... I think they'll be able to accomplish what they've set out to do."
Neal Cassidy

Diarmuid Ua Duibhne (9)

"Within this tower are a number of heroes both mythological and otherwise. While I'm not qualified to speak on all of them, there's one I know as well as I know myself. I learned years ago that a hero need not be flawless; quite the opposite. A flawless hero would know nothing of loss, failure, or pain, and therefore would have no concept of the stakes for which they fight.

Diarmuid Ua Duibhne has known all three of those, and known them well. I think that to be a contributing factor in his constant (quite literally to a fault) insistence upon placing others before himself. To spare others from pain, Diarmuid would readily fight and die without hesitation. Some might call that level of dedication bordering on self-destruction, and I would be inclined to agree. But even so, that genuine concern and kindness is something to truly admire.

To be human is to possess flaws and imperfections: fear, hesitation, self-interest, even hatred. Yet coupled with humanity comes empathy, and it is that which I think makes one capable of being a hero--one who can act in the protection and best interest of others. Ask me for a hero of the highest integrity and kindness humanly possible, and without doubt or hesitation I would name Diarmuid above all others.

Allow me to being this long-winded and slightly biased response to a close. A true hero should be in some measure flawed; otherwise they may never be able to understand those they mean to protect. Without loss and pain, victory has no meaning. All of us here would do well to remember that from time to time."
Waver (anon)

"Diarmuid Ua Duibhne is a hero because he's a good knight who protects people and he fights monsters really well." Aleph Sinclair

Diarmuid always helps others. I never see him when he is not helping, or training, or distributing weapons. His kindness and dedication make him a hero." Shion

"But for the best hero, I would say people like Diarmuid and the White Saber and Lancelot.

Diarmuid because he's a gentle and caring big brother. He's always ready to take responsibility for protecting others. And he's strong too. You should see him dual wield."
Lancer (Cu)

"I would say that Diarmuid is one of the greatest hero, for he always puts others before himself. Be it their happiness or safety, he does not hesitate to give his life for others and has proven this in his past.

He also teaches others and helps them understand what a hero is to be."
Suzaku Kururugi

"It's hard. A lot of people here in the tower are pretty great like heroes.

I think if I had to name just a few people, I think the best heroes I know are the two puppy brothers. I guess one is supposed to be a hound and the other a puppy. Maybe? One of them is named Lancer and the other one is his brother. They're really kind and strong at the same time. And they bring people together and make them feel welcome. I think that last part's really important for a hero."
Urotsuki (anon)

"Dia's a good person too! He saved me from a monster and helped me when the bad boy with green hair burned me and told me how I could be a better support! We ate lots of cake at his and his sons birthday, and he told me what brave was and what knights were! He plays with me a lot too, and we're gonna sing Rabbit's songs with me too! He made me little Rab too, and he and Raphael gave me Juralumin!" Yotsuba

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

But many still remain, to struggling against the bullies in charge of this place. I know a few personally and I knew a few who are still gone. Minato Arisato, Diarmuid, Enoch, Doctor Brown, Aleph, Naoya Toudou, Labrys, Risette. . .

I don't think of any of them as the "best hero" but I do believe they are heroes all the same, due to a common quality they all share. Because they decided to fight back against a force with superior power and control. Injustice in the system is stronger than yourself, and yet they continued onward anyhow. They did not give up.

Bad things happened and they rose above them. They are not perfect or without sadness, but they resist their oppressors with all their might.

They want change in a positive direction, to improve our situation for the better even when it seems an impossible task. They want to try.

That is what makes them heroes, Romeo."
Hidetoshi (anon)

"Diarmuid - Because a hero isn't perfect." Reno (anon)


Enoch (7)

"Enoch is a hero because he's a great leader and he cares about everyone, and he's strong and capable." Aleph Sinclair

"Enoch is always kind and nice to everyone, he works really hard to try and stop the administrators, I think he is a hero Taiki

"And then there's Enoch! He's always working to help others, whether by protecting them or making them cloaks. And he's got a cool weapon." Lancer (Cu)

"My uncles Enoch and Lucifel work the hardest out of anybody to protect people and fix the tower. Not everybody appreciates it, and they put themselves in danger, but they do it because it's right. I admire them." Zett Takajo

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

Hidetoshi (anon)

"Yeah, I do. Everyone in Pandora. Can't name them all, but there's Zelda and Enoch. And Tetra, too. She's a good kid." Neal Cassidy

"Enoch's my hero too! And so's Luci and Rick and you and Zett and Rabbit and Dia and..Lancelot and Kariya and a lot of other people!

Enoch and Luci are my honorary uncles! Enoch was so nice that God let him go to Heaven while he was alive! He's super smart and strong and he can go boing, boing! He's a really good person, and I'm gonna help him learn how to swim! He's smart, but he still doesn't know how! Oh! And Enoch made me Little Yoba too!"
Yotsuba

Zelda (5)

"Yeah, I do. Everyone in Pandora. Can't name them all, but there's Zelda and Enoch. And Tetra, too. She's a good kid."

Of course, there is also Princess Zelda. It is not my place to make explicit her struggles, but it is obvious that the burden that has been placed upon her shoulders is a great one. She has handled everything with the utmost grace and dignity, even when what needed to be done wasn't the most pleasant of tasks. She has come well into her royal bloodline and deserves to be remembered as a hero." England (anon)

"Zelda too! She's a princess but she's been looking out for me and a bunch of other people" Tetra

"Princess Zelda has endured this tower longer than I have, and she is stronger than I am despite this. She keeps calm under pressure and can call an argument to end. She is an admirable person and what royalty is meant to be." Enoch

"Zelda- For only bending, never breaking." Reno (anon)

Ruler (3)

"Ruler's kind of pretty awesome and kicks ass! She's definitely a hero type." Ryuunosuke (anon)

"While speaking of women of their countries, I would also like to give mention to Ruler. She is not mine to speak of; completely the opposite, if I'm to be honest. But her devotion to her nation is not something I can overlook. She deserves to be remembered as a hero for what she has done." England (anon)

"The greatest of all the heroes in the Tower is the beautiful, elegant, kind, good, wise, and blessed Jeanne d'Arc. She is also known as Joan of Arc, I have heard, and she is a saint! God himself spoke to her, and the angels, for her goodness so inspired them. Oh gracious, dear, and matchless Jeanne!

Though she was only a simple peasant girl, she joined the court of the king of France and fought to save her people from the cruel, oppressive English who had taken our lands. Not even the king knew what to do, but she showed him the way. She dressed like a boy and she took up arms, and she was the most beautiful sight anyone had ever seen. No one who saw her ever forgot the sight of her, proud and glowing, like an angel herself! She shone with the light of Heaven. She rode out into battle, yet she did no one harm! She was wounded, but she carried on! She is a noble, brave, fearless, soul, but gentle. She led the knights on to victory, and she freed the city of Orléans from its chains. The people there adore her for it. She is their savior! She gave all men courage in a dark time. Never before was there a woman like Jeanne d'Arc, and there never will be again. She gives me hope, even now.

Sadly, Jeanne was captured by the English and burned to death! They hated and feared her, so they called her a witch! There was no act on earth more heartless and cruel. But here in the Tower, she lives again, thanks in part to her faithful knight Gilles de Rais. She is full of love and is merciful to all men, even the most vile, unforgivable of criminals."
Caster

Saber of White (3)

"But for the best hero, I would say people like Diarmuid and the White Saber and Lancelot.

Saber of White because she's an inspiration to Diarmuid. I knew Saber of Black better, so I think Saber of White might be stuffier. But anyone who can impress Diarmuid with their honor can't be too bad."
Lancer (Cu)

"Saber of white. Not so much for what she did here, but rather, what she sacrificed for her kingdom back home. The isle of Albion owes her a great deal." Garviel Loken (anon)

"There is one here Called Saber of White, but whom I knew in Life by another name. She has been both King and Slave. For all that has passed, she is a Hero still, unbowed before Time itself." Lancelot du Lac

Cu Chulainn (3)

"If you say strongest hero, I might have to say myself." Lancer (Cu)

"It's hard. A lot of people here in the tower are pretty great like heroes.

I think if I had to name just a few people, I think the best heroes I know are the two puppy brothers. I guess one is supposed to be a hound and the other a puppy. Maybe? One of them is named Lancer and the other one is his brother. They're really kind and strong at the same time. And they bring people together and make them feel welcome. I think that last part's really important for a hero."
Urotsuki (anon)

"My brother, Cu Chulainn, has also suffered great loss. His loyalty means more than anything to him and yet, those who he has sworn himself to have been torn away from him time and time again by this place. Still, he moves forward. Still, he believes. Still, he hopes anew. He does not let loss cripple him. Instead, he reaches out so that others are not alone when that loss finds them. He reaches out to support those who are unsure. He reaches out to guide those who have lost their way.

He reaches out so none must face this fight alone."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne

Lucifel (3)

"Enoch's my hero too! And so's Luci and Rick and you and Zett and Rabbit and Dia and..Lancelot and Kariya and a lot of other people.

Enoch and Luci are my honorary uncles! And Luci's an Angel that was helping Enoch out back in their world! He's super fashanable, and he's good at giving hugs, and I get to ride on him, and he tells me a lot of great stories, and we're gonna cook together someday! And he's a support and told me that I could be a good one too, since I gave the best hugs! He's smarter than Enoch too and tried to help me when Daddy and Jumbo killed me!"
Yotsuba

"My uncles Enoch and Lucifel work the hardest out of anybody to protect people and fix the tower. Not everybody appreciates it, and they put themselves in danger, but they do it because it's right. I admire them." Zett Takajo

"Of course, the first hero that comes to mind is Lucifel. He has been a hero to me for as long as I can remember. In my darkest moments, he was there for guidance, and when I might have died he has saved my life. He's there to comfort me when he cannot help and continues to lend me strength. I am happy to have him by my side." Enoch

Reno (3)

"My friend, Reno, fights every day for the bonds he was told he should never form here. For the faces that mean more to him than anything else, but not only for them, for everyone in the Tower. He takes the strength he has found in those bonds, and he makes it so that others might know that strength as well.

His actions bring us all together."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne

"When told to run, Reno did not, instead attempting to protect another from a danger far stronger than himself. Even now, he focuses on helping others here." Enoch

"I owe Reno everything. He taught me and others how to fight, how to survive. If it was not for him many peoples lives would be even more miserable here. He is the bravest person I know and he more than qualifies to be one of the greatest heroes here." Shion

April Sinclair (2)

"April Sinclair is a hero because she's brave and keeps her spirits up even when tough things are going on around her, and she makes other people happy too." Aleph Sinclair

"I'm not sure what kind of a man I'd be without writing of April Sinclair. She comes from a world where her nation is in ruin. However, before she came here, she was working hard to restore it. It is no small task, rebuilding a civilisation from ash and dust without losing yourself in the process. She is a true woman of her country." England (anon)

Lancelot du Lac (2)

"But for the best hero, I would say people like Diarmuid and the White Saber and Lancelot.

Lancelot is a great knight too. He was one of the best knights in his own time. Also, he's a good friend."
Lancer (Cu)

Ryoji Mochizuki (2)

"I think almost everyone here is a hero in their own way! :) Like Ryoji, and Kachessa, and lots of people too." V/V

"My son, Ryoji, fights a darkness he did not wish for, mourns what he cannot control, craves what all should have, and fights so that he never loses what was given to him. He came to this place scared of what he would be and afraid of what others would think. Now he has pride in himself and is not so afraid to face that future when it comes.

He fights for all the things he was never meant to have and now never wishes to lose."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne

Patrick Dawn (2)

"I'd have to say that some good heroes in the tower are Rick Dawn and this woman named Merciless.

Rick can turn into all these different kinds of animals to do stuff. He's really nice and will always help you out if you need it. He's one of the best people in the tower in my opinion."
Veronica Madaraki

"Rick slept with Yotsuba and helped her make a shirt, and he's really nice and cool, 'cause he can transform into monsters and kitties! He's really soft and squishy too! I like him! " Yotsuba


Romeo (2)

"Truthfully, Romeo, I'd like you to also include yourself in this book. There is something to be said for wishing to pay respect to every soul lost from this tower, and having the inspiration to compile the memoir. Thank you for your efforts." England (anon)

"Enoch's my hero too! And so's Luci and Rick and you and Zett and Rabbit and Dia and..Lancelot and Kariya and a lot of other people!"

Kariya Matou (2)

"And Kariya's really nice, even though he's busy, and he helped Yotsuba out when the glamor was off, and he said that he liked robots too!"

"Triumph is not the only Path to Heroism-- better still is to never cease Battle, even when the Battle seems its most Hopeless. Perseverance in the face of great Odds is the mark of a Hero. Kariya Matou is such a one." Lancelot du Lac

Elena (2)

"Elena- Who has an inner strength that's still unbroken." Reno (anon)

"Elena is not afraid of her feelings, even when they can be twisted away from her. She is very strong." Shion

England (2)

"And England too! Zelda really looks up to him and princesses don't look up to people often." Tetra

"England tries to help people all the time, and is always kind to children and those who can't fight." Taiki

The Links (2)

"I think all the Link's were the greatest heroes. They were all chosen by the Goddesses, which is a huge honor and could wield the Master Sword. They were all kind of like family and they protected us and everyone else.

Especially my Link. He was just a kid, a little kid from a little island and he went out into the world to save me and his little sister and then he helped people here."
Tetra

"There was a Link that came and went from this place a few times. He was rather quiet, but talented with a bow. More than once, he came to my aid in dire times, though I had never done anything to merit the kindness. He was a true hero, even though he did not see himself as such." England (anon)

Sayaka (2)

"There was a young girl named Sayaka Miki. She was in our group for that large competition over a year ago now. Perhaps she is not the most conventional of heroes, but her unfaltering defiance in the face of what the administrators have done to us makes her a hero in my eyes." England (anon)

"Sayaka was very kind, even when really bad things happened she always tried to help." Taiki

Dax (2)

"Dax- With the courage to face Ruana." Reno (anon)

"And, of course, let us never forget Dax, who gave his life for us so that we might have truth and freedom."

Sealand

"Sealand is a hero because he's very brave and full of energy, and even though he's still in training, I know he's going to be the best at defending people when he has a little more practice." Aleph Sinclair

Kachessa Crim

"I think almost everyone here is a hero in their own way! :) Like Ryoji, and Kachessa, and lots of people too." V/V

Archer

"But Archer says that he's the King of Heroes, so does that make him the best? I don't know, but he's very smart and cool." V/V

Veronica Madaraki

"I guess I could be called a hero too. I'm a bodyguard that protects people from bad things, and I saved a few lives in my time here." Veronica Madaraki

Shion

"Shion- Even though he doesn't know it yet, he's already someone that can protect us." Reno (anon)

Xion

"Xion- Even though she's growing up here, she still has a pure heart." Reno (anon)

"My sister Xion, because she never gives up and has so much strength. Even when she is terrified she keeps fighting, and keeps me fighting too." Shion

Riku

"Riku- For the truth." Reno (anon)

America (Amelia)

"On that note, I think it's only proper that I mention the other Americas I've met; they were women, and they went by the name Amelia. I didn't know either of them nearly as well, but I'm confident that they were much the same in their strength and determination." England (anon)

Zett Takajo

"And Zett's Yotsuba's other honorary big brother! He's a Demon, but he's nice! He doesn't eat souls, so don't hurt him, okay?! I'll be super mad if you do! He can fly around, and he's super old like Enoch, even though they don't look it, and he played with me and taught me about computers! He's a good big brother!" Yotsuba

Waver Velvet

"My partner, Waver Velvet, has lost all that meant anything to him more than once and still fights on. He has hidden and sacrificed his true self so that he might fight at full power to achieve a goal none with will thank him for even as it saves their lives. He has accepted a failed knight heart and soul and given him his hope back. He has stood against those more powerful than him and not blinked. He has taken hold of his potential and made himself strong when others made a mockery of him.

He passes all that he has learned onto the future, so that those who listen might also fulfill their potential no matter what others think of them."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne

Suzaku Kururugi

"My other brother, Suzaku, fights many demons within himself. He hardly knows how to continue on sometimes, and yet he still is driven to protect, driven to help, driven to fight for a better future. It would be easy to fall into himself and his pain, but he does not. He still continues forward and will always do so until the day he finally finds that future he so yearns for.

His steps pave the way so that those who follow will not have to suffer as he did."
Diarmuid Ua Duibhne

Quark

"Quark is such a small child, yet he always reaches out to comfort others, even though I imagine he is very scared in this place himself. He may not be a great warrior, and for a man he is very small indeed but I would call him a hero."

Minato Arisato

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

But many still remain, to struggling against the bullies in charge of this place. I know a few personally and I knew a few who are still gone. Minato Arisato, Diarmuid, Enoch, Doctor Brown, Aleph, Naoya Toudou, Labrys, Risette. . .

I don't think of any of them as the "best hero" but I do believe they are heroes all the same, due to a common quality they all share. Because they decided to fight back against a force with superior power and control. Injustice in the system is stronger than yourself, and yet they continued onward anyhow. They did not give up.

Bad things happened and they rose above them. They are not perfect or without sadness, but they resist their oppressors with all their might.

They want change in a positive direction, to improve our situation for the better even when it seems an impossible task. They want to try.

That is what makes them heroes, Romeo."
Hidetoshi (anon)

Revolver Ocelot

"Another hero of darkness, Ocelot never fails to fight against the administrators. She trains others and encourages them to use their own strength. She never turns away from a challenge and never looks down on those not so powerful as her." Nesir Aeser (anon)

Doctor Emmett L Brown

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

Hidetoshi (anon)

Ganondorf Dragmire

"There is a hero in this tower, though he is not a hero of light like the rest of the named you will have inevitably received. Instead he is a hero of darkness, but still a hero and still worthy of remembering.

He works tirelessly to free us from this prison and never backs down in face of danger and never goes against his ideals. That is what makes a true hero, of light or darkness."
Nesir Aeser (anon)

Aleph Sinclair

Zoe Gallais

Naoya Toudou

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

But many still remain, to struggling against the bullies in charge of this place. I know a few personally and I knew a few who are still gone. Minato Arisato, Diarmuid, Enoch, Doctor Brown, Aleph, Naoya Toudou, Labrys, Risette. . .

I don't think of any of them as the "best hero" but I do believe they are heroes all the same, due to a common quality they all share. Because they decided to fight back against a force with superior power and control. Injustice in the system is stronger than yourself, and yet they continued onward anyhow. They did not give up.

Bad things happened and they rose above them. They are not perfect or without sadness, but they resist their oppressors with all their might.

They want change in a positive direction, to improve our situation for the better even when it seems an impossible task. They want to try.

That is what makes them heroes, Romeo."
Hidetoshi (anon)

Sora

"Sora saved the worlds. Doesn't remember it, but what's a few memory issues compared to that? He also managed to change someone who didn't have a heart to change. Overall, pretty impressive kid." Axel

Sephiroth

Heroes stick to their ideals and beliefs whatever is done to them, whatever indignities they may face. Someone who I believe embodies this is Sephiroth. In this manner, I would call him a hero. Nesir Aeser (anon)

Colette Brunel

"I found a letter in my mailbox asking for heroes that I know here in the Tower, and they are Colette Brunel and Zelos Wilder. Both risked their lives to save two worlds but that's not why I consider them heroes.

Colette is a gentle soul who, although she may not look like it, has a strength greater than the most muscle-bound man. Once she makes up her mind about something, it's very hard to have her change it, and she never looks for the bad in others--only the good, which may help people see that their are more similarities than differences between people."
Sheena Fujibayashi.

"There is a girl named Colette, she saved someone's life because she was quick and smart. That's the kind of thing that makes heroes" Capell

Zelos Wilder

"I found a letter in my mailbox asking for heroes that I know here in the Tower, and they are Colette Brunel and Zelos Wilder. Both risked their lives to save two worlds but that's not why I consider them heroes.

Zelos is a protector of children--whether he admits it willingly or not. And he's very protective of his sister. While many people who know him might think he's a little over-protective of her, to me, it's a sign that he's willing to protect others over himself.

PS: Please don't tell Zelos I said any of that. Thanks!"
Sheena Fujibayashi.

Tetra

"Yeah, I do. Everyone in Pandora. Can't name them all, but there's Zelda and Enoch. And Tetra, too. She's a good kid." Neal Cassidy

Labrys

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

Allelujah Haptism

"I believe Allelujah was a hero because he had to fight to be one, to fight against his self, and though he didn't always win I believe he never stopped trying" Suzaku Kururugi

Merciless

"I'd have to say that some good heroes in the tower are Rick Dawn and this woman named Merciless.

And Merciless was a fighter from a very bad world. She kept going and never gave up, and even though she's gone, she's still a hero in my book."
Veronica Madaraki

Risette

"We have endured a long time in this place. It is unavoidable that a lot of people have come and gone before they can be called heroes like they are.

Nunnally vi Britannia

"Nunnally was kind before she was anything else. She is perhaps a strange sort of hero but she always tried to do the right thing, and sometimes that can be very hard to do.

Rabbit

"Enoch's my hero too! And so's Luci and Rick and you and Zett and Rabbit and Dia and..Lancelot and Kariya and a lot of other people!

Rabbit was my first honorary big brother! He was a super awesome robot, and he promised to protect me and sang a lot of cool songs and said that I could be in his band with his brothers when I grew up! He's back home now..but he really liked his Daddy and his brothers too!"

Frodo Baggins

Frodo Baggins saved the world, even if it ended afterwards. He's a true hero though, the kind that stories are made out of. Samwise Gamgee

America (Adult)

"I recall that you have been here quite a long time, Romeo. Perhaps you knew another I wish to speak of. His name is America, just the same as the little America that's with us now. I'm not certain how long the big America was here; he arrived before I did, it seemed. He's been gone for a while now, but I know that if he were here, he would be doing everything within his stupid excess of power to save everyone. And I also know he would appreciate being recorded as a hero in any regard." England (anon)

Felix

"There was a man named Felix in the Tower who came here about the same time I did, but he's gone now. I think he's a hero, though. He was always there for people when they needed him most, and back home, he gave up everything he had in order to save the world... even though there were people who didn't understand what he was doing and tried to stop him, even though people treated him badly, he always did his best." Sheba

Jenna

"His sister, Jenna, was a hero too. She didn't understand what he was doing at first, but as soon as she did, she started to help him. She's one of the strongest people I've ever met, and she was also here for a few months, but... she's gone now, too." Sheba

Oz

"There was also a boy about my age named Oz who was only here for a short time. I don't know what he did in his world, but when he was here, he was always making people smile. It takes a special type of strength to keep smiling even in a place like this, so I'd say he's a hero, too."

Very handsome, to boot"
Rei

Gimli

"Gimli is someone else without whom our world would be lost entirely." Samwise Gamgee

Yotsuba's Daddy

Yotsuba

Jumbo

"Jumbo's soul is here too, so I'm gonna say that he's my hero too! He played with Yotsuba a whoole lot and helped out Daddy, and he's reallly big! That's why he's Jumbo!" Yotsuba

Jules Verne

You ask for the best hero I know and I can think of none other than Jules Verne!

He is probably not a hero in the conventional sense of the term, but he certainly is one in that he has given a dream to countless people and led them to believe they could accomplish fantastic things! He is the favorite author of both myself and my wife. There is a lot that I could say about his stories, but I unfortunately do not have enough time to write everything!

If they have his books in the library, I can only advise you to read them!"
Doctor Emmett L. Brown

A Rose (unnamed hero)

"There is a man on my world, who has worked all his life to please another.

He has never given up, never hesitated. Nobody sings his praises. Nobody likes being around him.

But he keeps trying.

It doesn't matter what happens to him. It doesn't matter what fate awaits him. He doesn't understand the idea of giving up. Not about this precious goal of his.

He prefers to be known as a rose, so that is all the name I will give him.

He will not be remembered, except perhaps by me.

He is one of the greatest heros my world has ever seen, and none will ever know it."
Lorelei

So whoever you were, some hero, some villain, just some cool guy who got on with his life or an angst filled remorseful magic dude. You are now Romeo, you are tiny, squishy and have no powers at all.

None. You can climb. You are good at climbing and are stronger then you look but that's not really saying anything.

What Romeo lacks in size and ability he makes up for with HOPE AND ENTHUSIASM. He never gives up, he never stops helping people and he has absolutely no concept of self preservation.

Romeo grew up with his mum and step father in Ticino (An Italian speaking Swiss canton) in the 1830's/40's. A normal peasent family they struggled through life. When he was eleven Bad Stuff happened, his family fell into abject poverty, his dad got sick and they couldn't afford a doctor. So Romeo sold himself into contractual slavery to pay for a doctor.

Really that one act explains most of what you need to know about Romeo. He is not exactly selfless (he is an eleven year old kid after all) he just cannot fathom not putting others before himself.

So tiny squishy and incapable of self preservation. He goes to Milano as a chimney sweep. Adults suck, he becomes best friends with an older kid (Alfredo) who is on the run, they make a secret brotherhood of chimney sweeps. The family who bought him are generally horrid, apart from their little girl who is very ill and can't leave her room. She makes friends with Romeo.

There are another group of kids called the Wolf Pack, they are from Milano and don't like the chimney sweep kids, they bully them and the Black Brothers fight back. Later Romeo talks them into a peace treaty because he's good at that.

She ends up going to Paris to see a doctor, Alfredo's sister (Biance) turns up, they break into the kings palace to take down their evil uncle (Romeo helps) and Alfredo is cleared of the crimes he was accused of (setting his home on fire and killing his parents).

Then Alfredo dies because he has tuberculosis and World Masterpiece Theatre lives to crush your heart. He gives Romeo three tasks; to look after Bianca, to continue his dreams- to make a world where all children are free, and to keep going, keep living.

Romeo is crushed and wants to give up but eventually (after lots of drama and being punched in the face and strange metephorical knighting ceremonies) becomes the leader of the Black Brothers, managing to raise enough money to burry Alfredo. He secures the peace treaty with the Wolf Pack and gets them to protect any new chimney sweeps from now on.

Then he goes home. Except he doesn't because he woke up in the tower instead.

But that's cannon, Romeo is a optimistic, hope filled kid who will help his friends no matter once. He is no stranger to hardship, has a healthy fear of adults and prefers peace over war.

Over his year and a bit in the tower Romeo has changed, he's older now (12- which is totally grown up). He is learning to fight, he trusts adults and see's many of them as friends though he will always be very polite to them. He recently learned how to hate - though only Jason has ever been the target of that hate. He still wants to help people, desperately.

I don't think that has been made clear enough HE WANTS TO HELP PEOPLE, he will get very angry if people try and stop him. This happens a lot due to the aforementioned being tiny, squishy and having no powers. During his time in the tower he has been in most of the events, and witnessed the others, he has been turned into a deer, a moose and a rocking horse. He has seen his friends die and been killed by his friends.

Somehow he is still chearful and happy, though sometimes that is a front. He gets scared, he gets sad, he gets angry but the way he deals with it is by keeping his spirits up (punching the air, apparently is the correct way to do that).

As well as Romeo you will get, a bunch of clothes that mostly don't fit (yay for growing...), a puppet theatre, assorted homemade puppets, a picture book, Moby Dick and a white Weasel (his name is Piccolo, look after him.)

Character Name: Romeo
Canon: Romeo's Blue Skies
Age: 11
Appearance: Romeo
Canon Point: Final episode after making the peace pact with the Wolf Gang, on his way out of Milano.
History: There isn't really much information at all on the wiki, here, so I have written a history myself.

Romeo is a young boy who lives with his family in Sonogno, a small village in the alps. His family are poor but happy until a slave trader called Luini, or the God of Death comes into town. He has his sights on Romeo but his parents refuse to sell him. It is high summer and there are worries about the fact that it has not rained in so long, the harvest is going to be bad. It is the day of the annual pole climbing competition and Romeo is finally old enough to compete, he wins the competition even though he is smaller than the other boys but when he gets to the top he sees his family’s field burning.

He and his father manage to rescue some animals but the field is ruined, the family face starvation and yet still refuse to sell Romeo. Luini is the one who set the field on fire and he waits patiently for the family to crack. Romeo wants to help and instead of doing his chores he goes off to fish to see if he can catch some food for dinner, leaving his little twin brothers to do his chores. His father is angry and calls him a selfish baby, Romeo runs off. While hiding with his friend in a barn he hears some adults talking about how they are surprised that Roberto (Romeo’s father) didn’t just sell him since he wasn’t his real son, and he had to provide for his two real children.

Romeo is devastated and doesn’t believe them, his mum finds him and tells him that it is true. Romeo was two years old when she met and married Roberto but he has always thought of Romeo as his son, in fact when Romeo was very little he had a fever and everyone thought he would die. Roberto tried everything to save him and eventually entered a church for the first time and prayed. Romeo’s fever broke that night and Roberto decided it was an act of God and bought the church a stained glass window with money he saved up over two years.

Romeo and his mother go back home and the family decide that they are strong together and they will just need to be strong to make it through winter, but then Roberto collapses, his head wound from fighting the fire has made him ill. They cannot afford a doctor. Luini tries once again to persuade Romeo’s mother to sell Romeo. She refuses.

Romeo finds his little brothers in the church praying and they tell him they have gathered some money to pay for a doctor, it turns out to be one coin and a mish mash of buttons, but his brothers say they will work hard to try and raise money.

Romeo realises there is very little hope of anyone earning 30 franks to pay for the doctor and his father is going to die. So he approaches Luini. Luini tells him he will be sold in Milano as a chimney sweep and will work there for six months before being allowed to go home. Romeo signs the contract. Later his friend over hears a woman explaining to her son that no children who go off to the city ever return. Romeo is scared but just tells her not to tell his parents.

A doctor cures his father and his parents are upset with what he has done, but understand why and are thankful. Romeo leaves with the God of Death. They make there way to a town, but Luini drops Romeo off in the road telling him to be at a certain inn in the city by sunset the next day. While taking shelter in a cave Romeo realises he has a stowaway, his Weasel Piccolo.

He arrives in a village and a trader accuses him of stealing apples, a blonde boy who uses logic to explain why Romeo could not be the thief rescues him, the man apologises and gives Romeo two apples. Romeo runs after the boy to thank him and peruses him until the boy accepts one of the apples. He follows him to the town and learns that the boy is Alfredo and is also going to Milano as a chimney sweep. They spend the day in town before going to the inn.

There they find a cellar full of frightened children who want to escape, Romeo and Alfredo try and persuade them not to- since they all agreed to this after all but they try anyways, they get caught and are put on a boat to travel across the river in a storm. The boat tips and Romeo and Alfredo manage to cling onto some driftwood. Romeo spots the God of Death and rescues him. They spend the night in a cave, Alfredo tells Romeo that he and his sister have ran away from bad people and Alfredo sold himself as a chimney sweep to keep Bianca safe. The next morning Alfredo tells the God of death that Romeo rescued him. Luini gets a carriage and takes the two boys to Milano, assuming the others have drowned.

They arrive at an inn in the city where they are left in a corner but talk to Nikita, a boisterous young girl who thinks they are idiots but explains to them what is happening. Chimney sweep bosses turn up and argue since there are only two boys to chose from. A man named Rossi buys Romeo for 85 lire and a creepy man called Citron buys Alfredo.

The men drink and the two boys talk, they decide to make an oath of eternal friendship to be friends always even when fate keeps them apart. However Citron drags Alfredo away before they are finished the oath. Romeo runs after them, with Rossi chasing him believing that he is running away. They finish their oath and Romeo goes with Rossi to his new home.

Rossi’s mouth is furious with how much Romeo cost and he is left in the darkness while the family eats, when he asks for food she gets angry and Rossi takes him to his room, which is more like a cage. There is a mysterious room in the house, one that he is not allowed into but which he hears beautiful music coming from. The next morning Romeo starts to learn his job, he falls out of his second chimney and is knocked unconscious but still tries again. At the top he finds himself on the roof looking over the beautiful blue skies of Milano. Rossi is happy and goes to the bar drinking away all their earnings. His wife Edda is furious especially after Anzelmo their son explains how he heard that Romeo passed out earlier in the day and Romeo is again given no food.

Locked once again in his cage room Romeo tries to keep his spirits up but finds it difficult. Piccolo finds a box and inside it Romeo is shocked to find bread and cheese he hears the music again and decides there must be an angel in the room, who has given him this food.

The next morning Piccolo is chased by a cat but rescued by the angel, who turns out to be a little pale girl with dark hair. Romeo and Rossi clean the chimney of a doctor named Doctor Casella and when they are done the doctor gives Romeo a book as a thank you gift. Romeo explains that he can’t read and the doctor teaches him how to write “What is your name? My name is Romeo”, the book is a picture book and doctor Casella tells him he can visit again to learn more.

Back in his room he finds another present from the angel; more food and a note. He cannot read the note but by comparing the note with the words the doctor wrote in his book he realises that the last line is “what is your name?”

He manages to write his reply on a scrap of paper and breaks out of his cage and slips the note under her door. He gets another note that he can’t read in return but the next day manages to find the doctor and get him to read it to him. It tells him that when everyone is asleep she will signal him with her music box and he should go quietly to meet her in her room.

He does so that night and learns that the girl is Angeletta, she is very sick and so cannot leave her room but watches the world through her window and sketches it. She has drawn many pictures of Romeo and as he tells her about the Blue Skies over Milano she wishes very much to see them. Romeo attempts to bring her the blue skies. He cannot draw but he keeps trying and finally brings her a symbol that lets her imagine the vast blue sky.

Anzelmo is attempting to learn Romeo’s secret, he is a member of the Wolf Pack a group of bullies who go around beating up chimney sweeps and other kids. Nikkita is also a member of the Wolf Pack. They knock Angeletta’s drawings off a roof and steal Romeo’s letters. But this backfires when Angeletta accidentally hands Romeo a page of her diary instead of a note and in it she is writing about how Anzelmo is lying to the wolf pack. Anzelmo gets beaten up and Romeo goes to avenge them (believing that he and Anzelmo have made a pact because it makes Angeletta upset that they don’t get on)

However Anzelmo hates Romeo and while he is fighting the Wolf Pack Anzelmo frames him for theft, hiding coins in his room. Angeletta sees but works herself into a fever and so cannot tell her parents. When Romeo gets home he is locked up and told the police are coming. He is scared and so escapes onto the roof. He gets into another fight with the Wolf Pack but gets rescued by a strange masked kid who turns out to be Dante, one of the children believed drowned in the river. With Dante’s help he gets onto a cart he believes is going to Venice but Nikita tells Dante that its actually going to the prison. Too late though and Romeo ends up in the prison. The cart he got onto belonged to criminals who fill the prison with gunpowder and free one of the prisoners. They lock Romeo up but he manages to escape. However Rossi has gone inside the police station and Romeo knows it is going to blow up so he runs into warn everyone.

The prison blows up and Romeo is injured, Dante and Nikkita tell the police about the criminals and they are caught. The truth comes out and they learn that Anzelmo framed Romeo. Rossi talks to Romeo and tells him that even though he still works for him he is free, he will take the bars off his room and he may be friends with Angeletta.

With his newfound freedom Romeo meets some other chimney sweep kids, learning that all the children off the boat survived and were brought later to Milano by the God of Death. He also finds the whereabouts of Alfredo and goes to find him. He finds him in Saint Babilo church and the two are happy to see each other again. They talk about the wolf pack and how they need to band together in order to be safe from them. They decide to make an alliance of chimney sweeps. They decide to meet on Friday night and tell all the chimney sweeps they know to sneak out and meet them.

They meet outside the church and go into a secret base used by resistance fighters against Napoleon. They decide that Alfredo is their leader and they make an oath. They call themselves the Black Brothers because they get black from soot and it is proof of their hard work. They light candles as they swear the oaths by the flames of courage to help each other out and pool their strength, to obey their leader and to not reveal their hideout to anyone.

The next day they plan their attack on the Wolf Pack, they decide to lure them into an ambush and teach them once and for all not to mess with them. Romeo is childish because he wants to lead the battle but listens to Alfredo. After the meeting he realises he has forgotten his bag and Piccolo at the hideout so goes back. He apologises to Alfredo for being stubborn and admires the fact that Alfredo can read a whole book. The book is falling apart and it is the only one Alfredo has. Romeo takes him to visit Doctor Casella who lends him a book, the doctors maid remarks to Romeo how grown up and mature Alfredo seems and Romeo decides to try and be just like him. He decides to read a book.

He starts to read the picture book he was given, a book about a donkey. He finds it very hard, at the same time Alfredo is reading Voltaire. The other boys tease Romeo about reading. He reads all day and all night and the next day and the next night but finally finishes. Alfredo’s boss gets angry and throws the book Alfredo is reading onto the fire, Alfredo rescues it but a couple of pages are burnt. He rewrites them from memory and doctor Casella is impressed by his ability.

The day of the fight comes and the Black Brothers beat the Wolf Pack. They learn Nikita is a girl and she and Alfredo argue. She then tells the Wolf Pack that the only way to get the Black Brothers back is if they are without their leader as he is the mastermind, they make plans to kidnap Alfredo. They capture they youngest Black Brother Michaelo and leave a note saying that Alfredo is to give himself in. He and Romeo go to do the exchange, Alfredo forbids Romeo from fighting them and he is taken by the Wolf Pack. Romeo and Michaelo try and persuade the others to help rescue him. At first they are too scared and Romeo says he will fight them alone. But when dawn comes they join him to rescue their leader. Angeletta gives Romeo a cross necklace to protect him.

The fight is brutal and Alfredo shouts for it to stop, he and Giovanni, the leader of the Wolf Pack agree to a one on one fight between Tachioni, the biggest of the Wolf Pack and Romeo. The fight is fierce and then Tachioni pulls a knife. However the sun comes out and the light reflects from the cross and blinds the bigger boy. Romeo wins and Alfredo is free. Romeo is a hero and they all sing their song ‘Pure Heart’.

On Angeletta’s birthday Romeo sneaks a few of his friends into the house and they give her an apple and sing their song for her. Rossi catches them but is not angry. Angeletta becomes an honorary Black Brother. However the boys learn that Angeletta is not Rossi’s daughter, but the child of a lord who died. Her grandma Isabel pays Rossi and Edda to look after her. Angeletta’s dream is to meet her grandma.

Romeo follows Rossi to Lady Isabella’s house; she believes that Angeletta just wants her money, to be allowed to inherit and so refuses to see her. Romeo is angry and reveals himself arguing that Angeletta is pure and would never do anything like that. Isabel asks what he is prepared to swear this on; when Romeo answers his life she pulls out a gun. Even in face of this Romeo does not back down and tells her she can shoot him as long as she believes him and sees Isabel. She doesn’t shoot him but refuses to see Angeletta.

Angeletta’s condition is worsening and it becomes her last wish to see her grandma, the Black Brothers decide to take her. They find a cart and sneak into Isabella’s mansion with Angeletta, even when faced with her granddaughter Isabella is cold and tells her to go away. Angeletta gives her music box to her. Her and Romeo go to the church to pray and Angeletta gets very ill. Edda is angry and Romeo goes to find doctor Casella.

There is nothing he can do, Angeletta needs treatment and needs to go to Paris for it. They don’t have enough money though Rossi goes to ask Isabella again to see Angeletta she refuses. By now the Black Brothers have taken matters into their own hands and blocked up all the chimneys in the house. They sit outside, on strike and tell her what a bad grandmother she is. Romeo turns up and tells them to stop because Angeletta loves Isabella and wouldn’t want them to do this. He also tells them that Isabella is lonely but Angeletta loves her. Isabella finally changes her mind. She visits Angeletta and decides to take her to Paris to find a cure.

A few days later nobles begin to come into the city because the grand duke is getting married. Romeo goes to meet Alfredo to give him a book from doctor Casella and they make another oath, this one to grow up and realise their dreams together; to create a world where all children can be free and learn. Later while cleaning a chimney in a hotel Romeo finds a girl escaping, it is Bianca Alfredo’s sister. She escapes into the city and is perused. Romeo finds Alfredo and Alfredo tells him their story.

They are children of nobles but their evil aunt and uncle burnt down their house, killed their parents and now is after Alfredo as he has the family seal. Alfredo had left Bianca with a farmer’s family but their aunt and uncle must have found her. The Black Brothers make a plan to rescue her. It fails at first and the uncle finds out where Alfredo is hiding. He goes to get the seal but Alfredo manages to escape. The Black brothers manage to save Bianca and the two are reunited. But Alfredo collapses and is taken to doctor Casella’s. He wakes up, the doctor tells him he will be all right but Alfredo makes him tell the truth and asks him to look after his friends when he is gone. Doctor Casella tells him that Bianca can live with him from now on.

Alfredo decides to go back to his Padrone as his contract hasn’t finished yet and leaves a note for doctor Casella asking him not to tell his friends about his illness. Alfredo and Bianca go to the secret hideout where their friends are waiting anxiously. Alfredo tells them about the seal and his aunt and uncles plans and they make a plan to sneak into the palace and tell the king the truth. Bianca becomes another honorary member of the Black Brothers.

They stake out the palace and make clothes for Bianca and Alfredo to wear. Bianca gets jealous of Alfredo and Romeo’s friendship and Alfredo explains to her why Romeo means so much to him and how he hopes they will be friends.

Giovanni tries to fight Alfredo, but learns that he is ill and they agree to fight when Alfredo is better, Alfredo and Nikita meet and Alfredo tells Nikita she will look pretty with a flower in her hair, she gets angry at him again but Alfredo coughs blood and she realises how sick he is. The Wolf Pack not realising why Giovanni is so angry decide to capture Alfredo for him telling him that Bianca is in trouble.

Romeo goes to rescue him and Nikita and Giovanni learn what their friends have done and are angry. The Wolf Pack catch up to Romeo and Alfredo and Romeo helps Alfredo escape, staying to fight the Wolf Pack alone. They beat him up and Giovanni demands to know why Romeo defends Alfredo so much. He tells them that it is because Alfredo makes everyone around him feel bigger and braver; whereas Giovanni makes his friends obey him through force. Nikita stands up for him and tells them that Alfredo has the same illness that killed Giovanni’s father. Romeo is angry and upset but he makes a deal with Giovanni that they finish the fight the next night, because he has to be at the palace to protect Alfredo no matter what. Giovanni suggests a truce and they decide to team up, Wolf Pack and Black Brothers together to help Alfredo.

Meanwhile Alfredo meets up with Bianca and the Black Brothers and they begin their plan. They begin to sneak in and are stopped by one of Alfredo’s uncle’s bodyguards. Giovanni saves them. The Wolf Pack and Romeo turn up and tell the Black Brothers about their truce. They fight more bodyguards with rocks and soot bombs. Nikita, Romeo, Alfredo and Bianca make their way into the palace while the others keep guards away.

They are almost at the feast when their uncle catches them, he tells them he doesn’t need the medal any more because he has a replica but that he is going to kill Alfredo. Romeo jumps in front of Alfredo and Nikkita knocks the uncle off balance, but Alfredo and Romeo fall off the balcony. Satisfied that at least one of them died the uncle goes to meet the king.

Bianca and Nikkita find Romeo and Alfredo and they rush off to meet the king. They get caught by some of Alfredo’s uncle’s guards but Lady Isabella rescues them. She explains to everyone who Bianca and Alfredo are, Michealo had found her and explained everything and pledges to help them.

They go into the receiving room as the aunt and uncle are talking to the king and explain that the medal is a fake. They are proven right because the kings father had made scratches in the back of the medal as a benediction in thanks that Alfredo’s father saved his life, the aunt and uncle didn’t know about this and so Alfredo was proven to be right.

The Black Brothers, Giovanni and Nikkita wait vigil in the snow wondering if their friends will come back once they are accepted once again as nobles. They go back to the hideout Romeo tells the Black Brothers that if Alfredo goes home with Bianca that’s fine because he deserves happiness. Alfredo returns to them, because this is his home and they are his friends. They all go back to their houses and Bianca after a little bit of complaining goes to doctor Casella.

Alfredo and Romeo go to the church to thank God for the nights successes, Alfredo is weak and he realises he is close to dying, he and Romeo talk and he tells Romeo he is going to be reunited with his parents. He dies in Romeo’s arms telling him to keep going, to fulfil the dreams that Alfredo could not and to look after Bianca.

Romeo is devastated, his mind fogged with grief he cannot even bring himself to get out of bed the next morning, he walks around in a daze and slowly the Black Brothers, as well as the Wolf Pack learn about Alfredo’s death. Bianca is taken to see her brother’s body and as she cries she remembers his words about trusting Romeo. Dante finds Romeo and asks him to be the leader of the Black Brothers but Romeo refuses, he is too sad and too tired. He doesn’t want to accept Alfredo is dead, he doesn’t want to give him a funeral and he doesn’t want to take his place. Dante gets angry and hits Romeo; he doesn’t fight back and just repeats that he can’t do it before running away.

The next day Dante is angry and he meets Nikkita. They talk about how Alfredo never gave up, how he fought for his life. Nikita jumps into the icy cold river shouting to fight, Dante realises what she is doing and jumps in as well. They go to the hideout and tell the Black Brothers that they have to get up stop crying and fight because Alfredo would never accept them like this. Nikita helps them write a letter to Romeo telling him that they challenged him to a fight. If he won he would be their new leader, if he lost they would cast him out of the Black Brothers.

When he arrives Dante hits him and tells him if he doesn’t stand up to them they don’t accept him as a friend of Alfredo’s. They tell him they need him and tell him to stand up. Bianca turns up and adds her voices to the Brothers; Alfredo always spoke about how brave he was; now he had to prove it. Romeo remembers Alfredo’s words before he died, and the words of their vow of eternal friendship. He gets up realising that Alfredo will always be with him. Dante tells him to hit him, so that he can get back up too. He becomes the leader of the Black Brothers and they set about raising money to pay for Alfredo’s funeral.

On a day where the sky was as blue and clear as crystal they hold the funeral, with each child and friend of Alfredo giving him something precious, Romeo gives him his hat and starts to sing Pure Heart, the others join in.

Romeo is leader of the Black Brothers for the remaining few months that he is a chimney sweep, in this time he learns more about leading, and being a great friend. Just before Christmas he falls of a roof and breaks his leg, doctor Casella takes him in while he can’t work and while Romeo is there he begins to learn a great deal of things. He reads Mobey Dick and his love of learning becomes stronger. Romeo and Bianca decide to express their gratitude through a puppet show and Bianca announces that she wants to stay with doctor Casella instead of returning to her relatives and to be a doctor when she grows up and doctor Casella agrees to help her, Romeo announces that he wishes to be a teacher, and help children so they can grow up and learn and be free.

Finally the end of the six months has come and the Black Brothers are free to go home. Before them no child has survived their stint of being a chimney sweep, out of all of them only Alfredo will not leave the city alive. It is a bitter sweet time when Romeo and his friends say good bye and Romeo realises how much he has grown and how he will miss the city, the rooftops, and even Rossi who has become like a father to him. He even offers a peace present to Anzelmo.

As they are leaving they see Luini, herding a new group of boys into the inn and they feel sadness that others have to go what they went through, and hope that they boys are as lucky in their friendship as they where. They go to visit Alfredo’s grave for a last time and find Nikkita, with a flower in her hair. Giovanni and the Wolf Pack come to say goodbye and Romeo asks for one last favour. He asks that the Wolf Pack and Black Brothers join forces for good and to live in peace with the new chimney sweeps that are brought to the city. They swear a peace pact on Alfredo’s name in front of his grave another step to creating Alfredo’s world where children learn and live in freedom.

Doctor Casella drives them part of the way home they take a final look over Milano and the boys finally return to their villages. Romeo is reunited with his family. Romeo works while going to school and realises his dream of being a teacher becoming a light to help the poor and weak. He marries Bianca and they have a son, naming him Alfredo. Romeo keeps working and keeps striving towards the day where all children will run free under the Blue Skies.
AU History: N/A

Personality: "A truly strong person will neither strike nor begrudge another. A truly strong person is someone who always has the strength to be kind to others." These are the words of Romeo’s father and it is a ideology that Romeo believes in. Romeo always does the right thing, even when it would make his life easier to do the wrong thing or to simply do nothing at all.

This is an eleven year old boy who sold himself into slavery to save his sick father, who almost drowned saving a slaver, who ran into a building that he knew was about to explode to warn the police men and his master, a man who had let him be starved, hurt, locked in a cage and arrested for a crime he knows he did not commit.

Romeo always tries to protect his friends; he is prepared to give his life to any of them and most of all to Alfredo. He often forgets that he can be hurt, or simply doesn’t care. This leads to him doing reckless things in order to help his friends, jumping in front of heights, in front of bullets, into rivers. He is prepared to die to prove that Angeletta is a pure hearted person. Most of the time he doesn't even realise that what he does is reckless and stupid. Indeed when asked about it he is confused, as if he cannot even think of putting his life before others.

His friends are the most important people to him, he will do anything to help them and this is intensified after he becomes the leader of the Black brothers. Since then he is used to others looking to him for help and advice and when put with a group of others of his age he would come out as a natural leader but he keeps his opinions to himself when around adults.

He can be very dramatic, the Black Brothers is a secret society of children with passwords, flames of courage and vows. Vows are incredibly important to Romeo, he vows eternal friendship with Alfredo, later vows to help fulfill their dreams together, vows with the black brothers. A vow of friendship with Romeo is important, sacred. If he promises to look after you or protect you he will happily die for you.

Most likely will die for you; Romeo is not physically strong, he gets stronger in his time as a chimney sweep, and becomes good a climbing. However his method of protection is to stand between his friends and those that try to hurt them and hope his friends manage to escape before the threat is finished beating Romeo to the ground. He even fights those who are much bigger and stronger than him, but that said he is not a violent method. He will fight to protect his friends, and he will fight to teach bullies a lesson but knows that peace is always better and finally manages to secure a everlasting peace pact between the Wolf Pack and the Black Brothers.

Romeo is a farmers child, he knows animals, planting and how to fish. He is used to hard work even before he goes to work in Milano. However there Romeo discovers a love of learning, arriving in Milano he could not even read but when he left he was harbouring dreams of becoming a teacher. His dreams are very important to him because they are also Alfredo’s dreams, which were passed onto him when Alfredo died. His biggest dream is to help create a world where all children run free under the Blue Skies.

Romeo is full of enthusiasm for life. He continues smiling through anything and indeed when he stops smiling; after Alfredo dies, people are shocked. They can't believe that even something so awful would effect him like this. The reason though is because Romeo does feel things strongly. He gets scared, sad, he has moments of complete despair when the whole world is against him. Yet he never dwells on it, he pushes it aside and keeps his spirits up. This is done through punching the air (because that is, according to Alfredo, how you keep your spirits up) and keeps going.

He believes others around him should keep their spirits up also. He tries to make sure they are happy, though he does try and help solve their problems. Even so this most likely comes across as annoying most of the time. Whatever he does and wherever he is he knows that Alfredo is always with him and that gives him the strength to carry on, “You are hope itself to me,” he announces to Alfredo’s grave.

Romeo's maturity seems to fluctuate. At times he seems so much older than his eleven years, with all he sacrifices he is able to put others first in ways that most people years older cannot manage. At other times he seems very young. After Alfredo dies for example his grief makes him act the way we would expect a child his age to act. He even refuses, at first, to organise the funeral because "If we bury him he can't come back." For the most part Romeo is a young child thrown into a world where he has to act much older than he is.

It is a traditional coming of age tale, with him growing from a child reliant on his family (his father at one point calls him a selfish baby- a little harsh seeing as two days later Romeo sells himself to save his fathers life) to an adult (if a very small one) protecting others and standing up for what is right. He stands up for the truth and hates to be accused of things he did not do. He often has trouble understanding why others are hateful or want to hurt others even while being hurt himself.

For the most part Romeo’s worldview is very clear-cut. Good people are kind and help those around them; bad people hurt and are nasty to others. People who are outside of this binary of good and bad, or who are mixtures of both confuse him, as it is not something he has come across before. He is wary of adults; though this is learned behavior from his time in Milano where for the most part adults either did not care or hurt him. He tends to believe people are on the good side of his good/bad split until they prove themselves otherwise. It is also worth mentioning that as a child from 1800s Italy he is Christian, because all those around him are also christian. For the most part it is just another aspect of his life, until it comes to the idea of death and afterlife. He has a strong belief in heaven and will be upset to have it challenged because he believes that is where Alfredo is and he wants to believe that Alfredo is happy and with his parents.

New Name: Mero

Samples

First Person: Here

Third Person: "It will be okay, you just got to keep your spirits up!" Mero punched the air. Keeping his spirits up was becoming really important as the days went on. He gritted his teeth and picked up the two buckets of water. They were heavy but really it was no harder than climbing a chimney, and he was given food and not locked up. He couldn't leave the bathhouse though because of all the water! Still he had met some nice people.

Not that nasty Yubaba, she had been mean and made Mero give her his name. He had been on his way home, after six months working in Milano and now he was here. Not at home at all but a scary place with spirits where they were forced to sleep in the day time and work all night. There was no beautiful blue sky here, or if there was Mero never saw it.

But he couldn't give up, because there had to be a way back home eventually. He was sure of it, if he worked hard enough and did as he was told Yubaba would let him go back home. For real this time! "She's even more mean than Luini was Alfredo! You wouldn't like her at all!" He glanced at the sky, even here in this strange world that wasn't his own Alfredo was with him.

Talking to Alfredo always made him feel happier, because Alfredo would never ever leave him. He couldn't really remember why, lots of things seemed to be missing from his head, but he knew one thing for certain. Alfredo would always be there.

He poured the buckets of water into the trough, at least the animals were nice! He climbed up onto the rail and reached out to pet a cow on the nose and smiled. He didn't mind his job too much really, because he was it was outside and not in the bathhouse with the spirits. Inside was crowded and there were so many adults it was a little bit scary. Even if Mero knew that Yubaba had stolen all their names as well and was making them work too.

"I bet you don't like her either," he told the cow who didn't even bother with a moo in response. Mero smiled and jumped down from the railing to go and get the food for the animals.

CR

Italics denote a character who Romeo has sworn a vow to; friendship, help, protection.
Red denotes characters who are members of the bitty brigade.

Amalia Sheran Sharm: Elian's friend, Romeo is going to make her a cake.

America (the baby one): Romeo met him in the hallways, he was new and called America though he was nicer than the America who used to be his roommate. He told him to be careful of the monsters and America said he could fight them. He screamed and screamed and screamed when England died.

Chidori Yoshino: They met in the coridoors while Romeo was a horror deer. He sponsored her for a proper meal in the labyrinth on days one and six. She was in Jason's pod.

Chihiro Fujisaki: She was running away from bullfairies, Romeo helped her at first thinking there was a big monster coming and later explained that they were not scary and were hurt. They decided to help them and went to make bullfairy wheelchairs.

Cloud Strife: He spoke to Romeo after Romeo got eaten by the giant spider. He asked Romeo to make sure no one who couldn't fight went near that floor.

Dave Strider: He was in Jason's pod. He had been turned into a clockwork thing and was punching the wall to see if he could feel pain. Romeo thought that his nerves had been stolen and promised to beat Jason and get them back for him.

He came to the second bitty meeting and Romeo was glad. He gave him ice cream and they thought about ways to beat the bad people.

Dax: One of the bad control people, but the nicest one. He is still a bad person though because he lets bad things happen and doesn't stop Jason.

Eikichi Mishina: He got crushed to death in the pod event by Riki.

Elian Zigmarl: A boy who came to the second bitty meeting. Romeo gave him an apple and Elian gave him shoes and clothes because Romeo's were too small for him. Romeo was really surprised and happy. Elian is a really good person, he promised to do anything for him if he needed help, or make him cakes. Elian said he would like a cake for his friend but had to check what flavour was her favourite.

Romeo found him during the whale attack, and they both escaped. Elian tried to make Romeo stay in the cafeteria but Romeo hadn't found everyone yet. He told him he would go fight instead. Romeo shouted at him and told him that they were his friends and so was Elian and he didn't want any of them to die. He apologised for shouting; he was just upset because no one would let him help. It was his home and he wanted to protect him. Elian went with him and they fought together. Romeo swore to keep Elian safe. Later Elian went and grabbed some medicine and he and Romeo gave it out to injured people in the cafeteria to help their pain.

England: He was in Jason's pod. Then he got killed by Jason who cut him up and killed him and it was awful and one day Jason is going to pay!

Enoch: Romeo spoke to him when he was in Itachi's body and was trying to help work out how to make things better. He suggested asking Zo to help but Enoch said that they wouldn't be able to reach him without the other bad people knowing. They then talked about good and evil and how it was hard to make Jason stop hurting them. Enoch said it was like when bullies try and hurt you and if you ignore them they try harder but then eventually give up. So they had to not let the bad things get them down and keep their spirits up.

Eridan Ampora (RDV AU): There was lots of him and it was really confusing. Romeo tried to talk to him on the computer. He was sad that some of them would die and thought it wasn't fair. Romeo decided he was a wizard and told him he would get good at his magic. But then Eridan said everything would work out, like God had decided what was going to happen. But they did agree that they had to stop the bad people.

Equius Zahhak (AU): Romeo sponsored him a warning of an incoming character on day eight.

Feferi Peixes: She was in Jason's pod she joined him in keeping their spirits up. Then they turned her into a monster and did something to her voice so she would hurt people if she spoke loudly. Romeo sat close to her cell so they could still talk. Then they put a monster in her brain and put a weird material over her. Romeo told her to stay strong and Feferi said it was hard. In week three he checked on her and she was keeping her spirits up.

She came to the second bitty meeting.

France (female): She helped him when Romeo exploded the cake, she was really nice to him and taught him how to make cake. They made ice cream cake with chocolate frosting. He told her all about Alfredo and she made him steak. She also told him that he doesn't come from Italy after all but from Switzerland and taught him a little bit more about how the nations work. He requested some rum for her so she could make lost bread. After he was experimented on she was really angry at the bad people and Romeo was scared that she would be hurt. He also realised that the animals in the forest were prisoners too but she told him to learn to walk first before trying to do anything else.

Once Romeo got better he found her in the study. She was upset but she was happy to see him back to normal. She met Piccolo and he gave her the rum. She cried and Romeo worried that he had upset her but she said it wasn't his fault and they went to bake lost bread. He spoke to her during hide and seek. In hour three she told him to be careful and he told her to be too. In hour five she didn't speak and Romeo was really worried. In hour eight she told him to be really quiet and not even breathe loudly, then something was coming. In hour eleven she told him to run, but there were bears everywhere.

He didn't see her for a long time but when he did she was playing music. He hugged her and she told him she had been sick. She told him she should leave the fighting to adults and he told her he was almost twelve. She disappeared for a while but then came back and was really sad. She asked if he was a ghost and tried to go into the lake even though it was getting dark and the monsters were coming. She told Romeo to go to bed and Romeo said that Piccolo could stay with her and chase her nightmares away. She told him to go away but he wouldn't leave her.

Gamzee Makara (OU): His roommate, Romeo met him when death made him go back to his room. He looks like the Grand Highblood and that made Romeo scared at first. But he was really nice even if he spoke really funny, he told Romeo he thought Ghirahim was probably nice but he was scared of him too. Then Ghirahim told them they were filthy and locked them in the shower until they got clean. Gamzee talked a load of nonesense filled Romeo's head with talk of miracles and managed to coax him into the shower. Glittery miracle showers and a new friend. They baked cookies for John though Gamzee tried to put slime in them...

Romeo sponsored him for a proper meal on days four and six and healing on day five. Then watched him go crazy and kill everyone and got scared. When he came back Gamzee was angry and threw things around, then he shouted at Ghirahim who beat him up. Romeo felt bad about him being hurt but was also scared. He also felt guilty because he had hit into Gamzee to try and stop him from hurting anyone.

Romeo apologised to him, and on behalf of Ghirahim as well. Gamzee said lots of things that didn't make sense as usual and then they played with play doh. Their friendship was pretty much over though and Romeo really misses the silly clown troll, but he tries to be a good friend to new Gamzee as much as he can, even if he doesn't like Romeo anymore. He was in Jason's pod and was really angry and sad. Romeo tried to help him even though Gamzee just shouted at him.

They spoke on the network after Romeo came back from his world and Gamzee was really sad and angry, but when Romeo tried to help him Gamzee shouted at him, he was really mean and made Romeo sad, but Romeo still won't give up on being Gamzee's friend.

Gandalf: Romeo met him in the library. He told Romeo that they could learn about the tower from what wasn't in the library, Romeo wanted to know how they could work out what wasn't there when there was so much that was. He told Romeo they would beat the bad people in time. Romeo helped him when he wanted information about the tower and Zo. Romeo told him everything that he could remember. Gandalf told him that he didn't think the bad people could come back from the dead. He told Romeo not to listen to Jason.

He then told Romeo to be careful and stick to safe places, Romeo told him he was twelve and Gandalf told him that wasn't old enough and he had to run away from danger. Romeo promised reluctantly (and then went to the graveyard and got eaten by a giant spider three days later). Romeo didn't see him again until he spotted him letting off fireworks in the meadow, they were really pretty. At the fellowship meeting Romeo agreed that they should try and make an alliance with the bad people to beat the badder people. Gandalf disagreed and said they would betray them once they had power. Romeo said they should make them swear an oath. (And then went through with it, because since when does he listen to Gandalf). But he did support Gandalf's theory about the monsters.

When Romeo was in Itachi's body Gandalf was in his friends body. He told Romeo to find his own body, Romeo was worried that Piccolo might be switched but Gandalf thought he probably wasn't.

Ganondorf: Romeo sponsored him for a proper meal and healing on day eight of the labyrinth. Though he is a bad person, but he asked Romeo and Kidou to go and talk to the bad people group to see if they could work with the good people to beat the badder people.

Genda Koujirou: Spoke to Romeo after Romeo got eaten by the spider. Romeo told him to be careful.

Gimli: A really small man who was hunting through the ruins of the workshop. Romeo helped him and collected tools that he found under the rubble.

Hei: He was in Jason's pod. In the second week when they had to balance on the beams Romeo kept falling off and Hei told him to keep calm. They spoke again in the third week and Hei told him that they were being tested for endurance and keeping to the rules. Romeo didn't know the rules so they only way to break them was to rebel. But when they spoke about rebelling Hei was in pain.

Romeo saw him again when Hei fell asleep in the kitchens, Romeo tried to help him but he was too heavy and he was scared that Hei would get eaten by a monster. He spoke to him when he woke up over the network and learned that Yosuke had dragged him somewhere else and put alcohol on him and hadn't put him somewhere safe. Romeo was angry.

Itachi Uchiha: A man who Romeo ended up in the body of, they met whilst in each others bodies, Romeo told him to look after Piccolo. He then got all of Itachi's memories, he is a bad person or a good person who does bad things and killed lots and lots of people. Romeo was really confused and a lot scared of him. When they were switched back Romeo asked him if he was a bad person, Itachi said that he didn't know, he doesn't want to be.

Jade Strider: She told him to get down to the cafeteria if he didn't have any cool skills during the whale attack. He told her she had to go get safe as well but it would be easier to search for people if they split up and both looked. She argued but he ignored her and ran off. At the yay we beat Jason party she stole his drink, he didn't like it but drank it just because she laughed at him for not liking it. She told him she didn't die in the whale attack.

Jason: Words do not explain how much Romeo hates Jason. He is a cruel, bad, cheating coward and a birthday ruiner. He is the most bad of the bad control people and Romeo hates him a lot. He hates him so much.

He holds more hate for Jason than should exist in any one Romeo.

Jin Shirato: He was in Jason's pod. They spoke in week three and Jin told him he had done lots of bad things like killing people and setting fire to their houses. Then he told him that he didn't care about other people and people shouldn't care about others. Romeo told him he was wrong but he was an adult and adults sometimes didn't care about kids. Jin told him seventeen was young and he was wrong then as well. Romeo doesn't like Jin much at all. He put him on the bad adult list.

In week four Ruana made Jin do all the operations, Romeo didn't blame him for that because Ruana was a bad person, and he felt sad that Jin was forced to hurt people. Romeo saw him in the library when he was with Sayaka and Jin ignored him but Romeo wasn't sure what to say to him either. He answered his quiz on the network though he didn't know it was him.

Ken said that Jin was a good person and was like his big brother so couldn't go on the bad list. Romeo wasn't sure but put him on the okay but bossy adults list instead.

Jack Sparrow: A really bad man who shoots defenseless monkeys. He kept telling Romeo that he was wrong and lying. Romeo didn't like him at all.

Jun Kurosu: He got crushed to death by Riki in the pod event.

Kanaya Maryan (RDV AU): She came to the second bitty meeting, she had been in the tower for a long time as well and she was very nice. She fights with a chainsaw that is different than a normal saw and agreed to help train people.

Kanji Tatsumi Romeo sponsored him in the labyrinth, healing on day four and eight, and food on day eight. He was in Jason's pod.

Karkat Vantas (AU): He had a broken arm and Romeo stopped to help him. He learnt some bad people had beaten him up, and promised to protect him from then on. Karkat wasn't impressed though. He later found out that Karkat was always sad and tried to find ways to help him. Romeo sponsored him for a proper meal on day two and seven of the labyrinth. He got crushed to death by Riki in the pods.

Ken Amada (AU): Romeo met him in the halls, he had just woke up and Romeo told him they had to beat the bad people. He wanted to know why Romeo would want to make a group of kids and Romeo told him he should join. Ken told him he was too innocent to lead and Romeo told him he had done it before. Romeo sponsored him when he was in the labyrinth, proper meals on day one and six.

Ken came to the bitty meeting. He told Romeo that he spelled rules wrong and didn't like the rule about obeying the leader because sometimes leaders are wrong. He can fight with spears and persona.

He was in Jason's pod and was crying because he was scared. Romeo told him that he had to be brave, Ken told him he was going to hit Jason and Romeo said that was not a nice thing to say. He soon changed his mind after Ken was hurt and spoke to him, trying to make him feel better and told him to think of nice things like his friends so it didn't hurt as much.

When England died Ken was with Romeo and Romeo told him he had been wrong, Ken should stab Jason in the face. Ken dried his tears and took him away so they didn't have to see. In the second week they did something to his brain and made him hurt a lot. Romeo told him he was braver than Jason would ever be because Jason is a stupid coward. Once they were let out for the end of the week Romeo gave Ken a hug with his bug legs. They agreed that Jason was a stupid cheater.

Then Ken let Yu throw him at Jason to try and hit him, which was a very brave thing to do. When Romeo was lecturing thin air Jason Ken told him about Sentai and Fetherman R and giant robots which are like trains but with no tracks and can fly and are superheroes. They agreed to find some films about them in the media room when they got out of the pods.

At the end of the week when they were all stuck together with tentacles it was Ken's birthday, he turned twelve. Romeo held his hand and promised to make him cake because Jason was a stupid birthday ruiner.

Ken was given a pop out heart and then was strapped to a bed. Romeo went to see him when he was a rocking horse and they were both glad they weren't in the tentacle mess anymore.

When Romeo returned from his world he saw Ken again, Ken has a hamster called Tan. He told Romeo off for scaring him because Romeo tackle hugged him. Tan and Piccolo made friends. Romeo found Ken asleep in the meadow, he wouldn't wake up and so Romeo dragged him back to his room.

Ken came to the second bitty brigade meeting, Romeo had made him a cake as possible and a card with his imaginings of a giant robot superhero on it. Romeo voted Ken for leader and Ken voted Sayaka but Sayaka was almost too old. He also suggested training sessions for weapons, Romeo thought that was a good idea. During the whale attack Ken told him over the network to make sure all the bitties got to the cafeteria. When the tower was fixed again he announced a bitty training session and Romeo went to it. Ken's persona had changed and Romeo met his new one.

Kidou Yuuto: He and Romeo went to talk to the group of bad people to convince them to team up with the good people to beat the really bad people. Kidou was nice and they promised to keep each other safe.

Legolas: Romeo doesn't know him but Gandalf was in his body.

Lina Inverse: A girl who was on the network and couldn't type properly. Romeo helped her. She's a nice adult and Romeo likes her. After hide and seek she was really angry and Romeo told her about the bad people and how they had to stop them. She then tried to break the elevator but failed, Romeo told her that it couldn't be broken and reminded her that the bad were bad. She was too old to join the bitty brigade but Romeo told her she should make a team of adults. She said adults didn't listen to her and she lost her temper. Romeo told her that losing her temper wasn't good and she should try and stay calm. He sponsored her for a proper meal on day four and powers on day four and seven.

She spoke to him about being eaten by the giant spider and agreed to help make sure everyone was warned. Romeo agreed for her to look out for the bitty brigade and came up with the idea of having a list of good adults to help them.

He hugged her when he came back from his world and told her about it being dead. She told him it was probably a trick. Romeo agreed, mostly to keep his spirits up. She ended up on the okay but bossy adult list as a compromise with Sayaka.

Link (AU1): He is an Elf that isn't called an elf. He plays pretty music and comes from a magical forest! With trees that play music, pretty music and children that never grow up! He said that music was a form of magic. Romeo wishes he could see his world because it sounds very beautiful and amazing. He was killed in hide and seek when his friend was turned into crystal and used to beat him to death. Romeo saw over the phone and was really sad.

After hide and seek Romeo found her by the lake on floor eleven. He hugged him but he was still really sad and crying. So Romeo sang pure heart to him. Then told him about Alfredo and how brave he was. Romeo thinks Alfredo would like Link.

Lucifer: He was in Jason's pod.

Luke fon Fabre: He was in Jason's pod. They cut his ears off and put a machine there, he couldn't hear anyone and was really scared and screaming. Romeo tried to calm him down but it didn't work because he couldn't hear him.

Luke Triton: He came back! Months and months later Romeo ran into him during the whale panic. And told him to get downstairs and be safe.

Minato Arisato (AU): He was in Jason's pod, Jason did something to his brain and he looked really scared. He told Romeo that they would live and he should worry about the others. He voted for England at the end of week one and made him die.

Momotaros: An angry red monster man, Romeo told him that he had been stolen by bad people who said the worlds had ended. Momotaros told him he had stopped the world ending so it couldn't be true. During the whale attack Momotaros saw Romeo going off to fight monsters and said he would help, he took over Romeo's body and made him really good at fighting! He is the best big red monster man ever!

Namine: He found her looking scared after the scary videos and spoke to her. They spoke about how the frightened sounding person needed help and it could be a trick but they had to help anyways. Namine seemed scared so Romeo prmoised to look after her, she was a bit confused at that. Then they spoke about Psiioniic since he had told Namine she would like Romeo. She wasn;t sure if she could call Psiioniic a friend and Romeo told her she probably could, she seemed sad and he tried to find out why. He told her to keep her spirits up always. Namine was sad when Romeo couldn't find Molly and he promised to look for her. They ended up in the same group for the midnight man game. Then Romeo saw her die during hide and seek.

During the collar switch he ended up in the maze and met her, but he was really confused and thought he was in Milano. He doesn't remember much of it but it was scary and he isn't sure what to think about it. He knows it wasn't Namine's fault though.

Reno (OU): They spoke on the network (Romeo assumed it was the other Reno) after Romeo was eaten by the giant spider. He told him he was too chearful and Romeo told him that he had to keep his spirits up because if they got sad then the bad people would win. Reno told him not to call him sad and that trying didn't even succeed. Romeo told him it did because they couldn't give up. Reno told him he was smart. He saw him later when setting up the bitty meeting. He told Romeo not to spin any bottles which Romeo didn't understand at all but he was nice and Romeo put him on the nice adults list. He told him about the phantom monsters eating the collar colours in the fellowship meeting.

Riki: One of the bad control people. He isn't very nice at all and kills people in horrible ways. Everyone in his pod looked sick all the time but Romeo was on his dead world in the month that he was in charge.

Riku (OU): They were in the same group for the midnight man game.

Riku (AU): They met in the meadow, Riku had a key sword like Ven but it didn't turn into a hover board. Instead he used a Gummi ship to travel through the stars! But he didn't have that with him, Romeo told him about the bad people and Riku agreed to help beat them!

Rose Egbert: She came to the second bitty meeting. He saw her during the whale attack and she had a mutant kitten. She was looking for friends too and Romeo told her that it was a whale that was trying to eat them. He helped her search.

Ruana: One of the baddest of the bad control people. She pretends to be nice but it really horrible and makes people do horrible things and smiles and chears when people die. Romeo hates her.

Sakuma Jirou: He spoke to Romeo on the announcement of the second bitty brigade meeting, he said he was fourteen and Romeo told him he could still come. He couldn't fight and Romeo said that they would look after him or teach him how to fight. Romeo told him about being sent to his world, and tried to help him keep his spirits up. He said he would come to the meeting next time.

Sayaka Miki: She said she would join the bitty brigade because she was fourteen. She said she would think of a good password. She came to the bitty meeting, she has magic. She also disagreed that Lina should be on the good adult list. She was in Jason's pod and he told her this was not the first time this had happened. After her surgery he told her she was very brave, she said she didn't feel brave but she really was.

She killed her friend to try and save her from Jason, then Ruana turned her inside out and killed her. Romeo next saw her in the library with Jin, he offered to help find out information but she said they were fine and he had to go set up the bitty meeting. He promised they would wait for her before they started since she was busy. He also burned her eyes with wall of red text but he didn't know it was her.

She came to the bitty meeting and he saved her ice cream and everything! Ken voted her for leader but she is almost too old to be in the group and will have to leave soon. She voted Romeo.

During the whale attack Romeo saw her, he tried to make her go downstairs like Ken said, but then she said she could save more people because she had magic. Mister Jason ruined her birthday as well, Romeo gave her an apple because there was no food and also gave her a hug.

Shinjiro Aragaki: Romeo sponsored him for a proper meal on day three of the labyrinth because he seemed hungry.

Sonata Shinonome: She came to the second bitty brigade meeting she is really nice and enthusiastic but talks about herself in the third person because she thinks it is cute. He gave her ice cream, she came from somewhere with it, a secret hidden place where bad people couldn't find them. Romeo thinks that sounds great. She agreed with Molly about dentists.

During the whale attack he helped her get safely downstairs, she was scared but he made sure she got there safely. She came to Ken's training session and fights with glowy swords! She is a member of an idol group and sings on planets where music is banned. She wants to sing with people in the tower, Romeo sang the black brothers song for her.

Suzaku Kururugi: He was killed by Riki in the pod event, he exploded.

Tatsuya Suou: He got crushed to death by Riki in the pod event.

Terra (AU): He made pancakes! Romeo met him in the kitchens.

Veigar: His new roommate, he arrived on the day when Ghirahim was angry and sad and Gamzee came back crazy and mad and everyone fought. Ghirahim beat Gamzee up and everything was awful.

Ventus (OU): He is awesome and has magical fire! He and Romeo made friends around a campfire in the blackout. After Romeo had been experimented on Ven leant him his hover board until he learnt to walk properly. He is a great friend. Romeo tried to help him fix his practice keyblade but ended up hitting his fingers with a hammer. He was sad that he had hurt him but Ven could heal himself and is going to teach Romeo magic so he can help people too.

When Molly disappeared Ven helped Romeo and tried to convince him she was really gone, but Romeo wouldn't stop searching. When Romeo began learning to fight he asked Ven to teach him magic, he gave Ven back his keyblade (finally) and started to learn magic (with the help of a whale puppet). He learned how to heal.

When Romeo was in Jason's pod Ven looked after Piccolo. Romeo went back to his world after wards but when he returned looked for Piccolo and found Ven. Ven told him that Yu and Zelda had told him about the pods, he liked Yu too and told Romeo that if he ever needed help he could go to Ven. Then they went and found food! Real food!

Romeo met him when he was in Itachi's body, Ven was in his friends body but looked the same, he didn't know why he looked like his friend. He told Romeo he wasn't a twin. He also said Romeo should wait to grow up and Romeo told him he was gald he was still a human and didn't have antlers this time.

Vergil: Romeo's roommate.

Yu Narukami: He was in Jason's pod. He voted for England at the end of week one and made him die; Romeo thought that made him a bad person but then he changed his mind. Yu threw Ken at Jason so Ken could hit him, then talked Ruana out of punishing them. He told Romeo to save his strength when he was lecturing Jason. Romeo told him he was brave for what he had done and Yu said he had been scared. Romeo said Russia had told him you had to be scared before you could be brave and that it was good he had been polite.

At the end of the week when they were stuck together with tentacles Yu told him that they had to be brave, they talked about how Jason and Ruana were not good leaders and Yu told him about dictators. They talked about how they were stronger together.

Yu was all injured and kept falling over once he was released from the tentacle mess, he still helped Romeo who kept accidentally toppling over from over rocking. He told him about his uncle who was a hero and how being injured made you still want to do things. Romeo told him about breaking his leg and having to stay still. Romeo thinks Yu is a hero and Yu told him anyone could be a hero; even Romeo. Romeo didn't see him again for a long time, until after the body swap but then saw him in the meadow.

Yusuke Urameshi: An idiot of the highest calibre. Romeo has never met him but that is what Hei said about him because Yusuke had left Hei somewhere dangerous with alcohol all over him when he fell asleep. Romeo thinks Yusuke should apologise.

Zelda: They were in the same group for the midnight man game. She is Link's friend and was turned into crystal during hide and seek and died. She was going to go and help everyone in the labyrinth. Romeo wanted to help but she wouldn't let him, she said he was too little. He was angry because his friends were in danger and he didn't care about being hurt. But she told him to keep watch instead.

So he did. He saw and watched the whole messy affair on the network, saw Gamzee go crazy and all his friends die but he made sure to watch carefully in case he could help at all. He spoke to her whilst he was a horror moose and she told them that they would win, she would ensure Dax's victory because Jason's evil couldn't continue.

Zo: A kid who Romeo thinks is a prisoner of the bad control people, Romeo wishes he could help him and when he finally finds a way to save everyone he will save Zo as well.

History:

Romeo is a young boy who lives with his family in Sonogno, a small village in the alps. His family are poor but happy until a slave trader called Luini, or the God of Death comes into town. He has his sights on Romeo but his parents refuse to sell him. It is high summer and there are worries about the fact that it has not rained in so long, the harvest is going to be bad. It is the day of the annual pole climbing competition and Romeo is finally old enough to compete, he wins the competition even though he is smaller than the other boys but when he gets to the top he sees his family’s field burning.

He and his father manage to rescue some animals but the field is ruined, the family face starvation and yet still refuse to sell Romeo. Luini is the one who set the field on fire and he waits patiently for the family to crack. Romeo wants to help and instead of doing his chores he goes off to fish to see if he can catch some food for dinner, leaving his little twin brothers to do his chores. His father is angry and calls him a selfish baby, Romeo runs off. While hiding with his friend in a barn he hears some adults talking about how they are surprised that Roberto (Romeo’s father) didn’t just sell him since he wasn’t his real son, and he had to provide for his two real children.

Romeo is devastated and doesn’t believe them, his mum finds him and tells him that it is true. Romeo was two years old when she met and married Roberto but he has always thought of Romeo as his son, in fact when Romeo was very little he had a fever and everyone thought he would die. Roberto tried everything to save him and eventually entered a church for the first time and prayed. Romeo’s fever broke that night and Roberto decided it was an act of God and bought the church a stained glass window with money he saved up over two years.

Romeo and his mother go back home and the family decide that they are strong together and they will just need to be strong to make it through winter, but then Roberto collapses, his head wound from fighting the fire has made him ill. They cannot afford a doctor. Luini tries once again to persuade Romeo’s mother to sell Romeo. She refuses.

Romeo finds his little brothers in the church praying and they tell him they have gathered some money to pay for a doctor, it turns out to be one coin and a mish mash of buttons, but his brothers say they will work hard to try and raise money.

Romeo realises there is very little hope of anyone earning 30 franks to pay for the doctor and his father is going to die. So he approaches Luini. Luini tells him he will be sold in Milano as a chimney sweep and will work there for six months before being allowed to go home. Romeo signs the contract. Later his friend over hears a woman explaining to her son that no children who go off to the city ever return. Romeo is scared but just tells her not to tell his parents.

A doctor cures his father and his parents are upset with what he has done, but understand why and are thankful. Romeo leaves with the God of Death. They make there way to a town, but Luini drops Romeo off in the road telling him to be at a certain inn in the city by sunset the next day. While taking shelter in a cave Romeo realises he has a stowaway, his Weasel Piccolo.

He arrives in a village and a trader accuses him of stealing apples, a blonde boy who uses logic to explain why Romeo could not be the thief rescues him, the man apologises and gives Romeo two apples. Romeo runs after the boy to thank him and peruses him until the boy accepts one of the apples. He follows him to the town and learns that the boy is Alfredo and is also going to Milano as a chimney sweep. They spend the day in town before going to the inn.

There they find a cellar full of frightened children who want to escape, Romeo and Alfredo try and persuade them not to- since they all agreed to this after all but they try anyways, they get caught and are put on a boat to travel across the river in a storm. The boat tips and Romeo and Alfredo manage to cling onto some driftwood. Romeo spots the God of Death and rescues him. They spend the night in a cave, Alfredo tells Romeo that he and his sister have ran away from bad people and Alfredo sold himself as a chimney sweep to keep Bianca safe. The next morning Alfredo tells the God of death that Romeo rescued him. Luini gets a carriage and takes the two boys to Milano, assuming the others have drowned.

They arrive at an inn in the city where they are left in a corner but talk to Nikita, a boisterous young girl who thinks they are idiots but explains to them what is happening. Chimney sweep bosses turn up and argue since there are only two boys to chose from. A man named Rossi buys Romeo for 85 lire and a creepy man called Citron buys Alfredo.

The men drink and the two boys talk, they decide to make an oath of eternal friendship to be friends always even when fate keeps them apart. However Citron drags Alfredo away before they are finished the oath. Romeo runs after them, with Rossi chasing him believing that he is running away. They finish their oath and Romeo goes with Rossi to his new home.

Rossi’s mouth is furious with how much Romeo cost and he is left in the darkness while the family eats, when he asks for food she gets angry and Rossi takes him to his room, which is more like a cage. There is a mysterious room in the house, one that he is not allowed into but which he hears beautiful music coming from. The next morning Romeo starts to learn his job, he falls out of his second chimney and is knocked unconscious but still tries again. At the top he finds himself on the roof looking over the beautiful blue skies of Milano. Rossi is happy and goes to the bar drinking away all their earnings. His wife Edda is furious especially after Anzelmo their son explains how he heard that Romeo passed out earlier in the day and Romeo is again given no food.

Locked once again in his cage room Romeo tries to keep his spirits up but finds it difficult. Piccolo finds a box and inside it Romeo is shocked to find bread and cheese he hears the music again and decides there must be an angel in the room, who has given him this food.

The next morning Piccolo is chased by a cat but rescued by the angel, who turns out to be a little pale girl with dark hair. Romeo and Rossi clean the chimney of a doctor named Doctor Casella and when they are done the doctor gives Romeo a book as a thank you gift. Romeo explains that he can’t read and the doctor teaches him how to write “What is your name? My name is Romeo”, the book is a picture book and doctor Casella tells him he can visit again to learn more.

Back in his room he finds another present from the angel; more food and a note. He cannot read the note but by comparing the note with the words the doctor wrote in his book he realises that the last line is “what is your name?”

He manages to write his reply on a scrap of paper and breaks out of his cage and slips the note under her door. He gets another note that he can’t read in return but the next day manages to find the doctor and get him to read it to him. It tells him that when everyone is asleep she will signal him with her music box and he should go quietly to meet her in her room.

He does so that night and learns that the girl is Angeletta, she is very sick and so cannot leave her room but watches the world through her window and sketches it. She has drawn many pictures of Romeo and as he tells her about the Blue Skies over Milano she wishes very much to see them. Romeo attempts to bring her the blue skies. He cannot draw but he keeps trying and finally brings her a symbol that lets her imagine the vast blue sky.

Anzelmo is attempting to learn Romeo’s secret, he is a member of the Wolf Pack a group of bullies who go around beating up chimney sweeps and other kids. Nikkita is also a member of the Wolf Pack. They knock Angeletta’s drawings off a roof and steal Romeo’s letters. But this backfires when Angeletta accidentally hands Romeo a page of her diary instead of a note and in it she is writing about how Anzelmo is lying to the wolf pack. Anzelmo gets beaten up and Romeo goes to avenge them (believing that he and Anzelmo have made a pact because it makes Angeletta upset that they don’t get on)

However Anzelmo hates Romeo and while he is fighting the Wolf Pack Anzelmo frames him for theft, hiding coins in his room. Angeletta sees but works herself into a fever and so cannot tell her parents. When Romeo gets home he is locked up and told the police are coming. He is scared and so escapes onto the roof. He gets into another fight with the Wolf Pack but gets rescued by a strange masked kid who turns out to be Dante, one of the children believed drowned in the river. With Dante’s help he gets onto a cart he believes is going to Venice but Nikita tells Dante that its actually going to the prison. Too late though and Romeo ends up in the prison. The cart he got onto belonged to criminals who fill the prison with gunpowder and free one of the prisoners. They lock Romeo up but he manages to escape. However Rossi has gone inside the police station and Romeo knows it is going to blow up so he runs into warn everyone.

The prison blows up and Romeo is injured, Dante and Nikkita tell the police about the criminals and they are caught. The truth comes out and they learn that Anzelmo framed Romeo. Rossi talks to Romeo and tells him that even though he still works for him he is free, he will take the bars off his room and he may be friends with Angeletta.

With his newfound freedom Romeo meets some other chimney sweep kids, learning that all the children off the boat survived and were brought later to Milano by the God of Death. He also finds the whereabouts of Alfredo and goes to find him. He finds him in Saint Babilo church and the two are happy to see each other again. They talk about the wolf pack and how they need to band together in order to be safe from them. They decide to make an alliance of chimney sweeps. They decide to meet on Friday night and tell all the chimney sweeps they know to sneak out and meet them.

They meet outside the church and go into a secret base used by resistance fighters against Napoleon. They decide that Alfredo is their leader and they make an oath. They call themselves the Black Brothers because they get black from soot and it is proof of their hard work. They light candles as they swear the oaths by the flames of courage to help each other out and pool their strength, to obey their leader and to not reveal their hideout to anyone.

The next day they plan their attack on the Wolf Pack, they decide to lure them into an ambush and teach them once and for all not to mess with them. Romeo is childish because he wants to lead the battle but listens to Alfredo. After the meeting he realises he has forgotten his bag and Piccolo at the hideout so goes back. He apologises to Alfredo for being stubborn and admires the fact that Alfredo can read a whole book. The book is falling apart and it is the only one Alfredo has. Romeo takes him to visit Doctor Casella who lends him a book, the doctors maid remarks to Romeo how grown up and mature Alfredo seems and Romeo decides to try and be just like him. He decides to read a book.

He starts to read the picture book he was given, a book about a donkey. He finds it very hard, at the same time Alfredo is reading Voltaire. The other boys tease Romeo about reading. He reads all day and all night and the next day and the next night but finally finishes. Alfredo’s boss gets angry and throws the book Alfredo rescues onto the fire, Alfredo rescues it but a couple of pages are burnt. He rewrites them from memory and doctor Casella is impressed by his ability.

The day of the fight comes and the Black Brothers beat the Wolf Pack. They learn Nikita is a girl and she and Alfredo argue. She then tells the Wolf Pack that the only way to get the Black Brothers back is if they are without their leader as he is the mastermind, they make plans to kidnap Alfredo. They capture they youngest Black Brother Michaelo and leave a note saying that Alfredo is to give himself in. He and Romeo go to do the exchange, Alfredo forbids Romeo from fighting them and he is taken by the Wolf Pack. Romeo and Michaelo try and persuade the others to help rescue him. At first they are too scared and Romeo says he will fight them alone. But when dawn comes they join him to rescue their leader. Angeletta gives Romeo a cross necklace to protect him.

The fight is brutal and Alfredo shouts for it to stop, he and Giovanni, the leader of the Wolf Pack agree to a one on one fight between Tachioni, the biggest of the Wolf Pack and Romeo. The fight is fierce and then Tachioni pulls a knife. However the sun comes out and the light reflects from the cross and blinds the bigger boy. Romeo wins and Alfredo is free. Romeo is a hero and they all sing their song ‘Pure Heart’.

On Angeletta’s birthday Romeo sneaks a few of his friends into the house and they give her an apple and sing their song for her. Rossi catches them but is not angry. Angeletta becomes an honorary Black Brother. However the boys learn that Angeletta is not Rossi’s daughter, but the child of a lord who died. Her grandma Isabel pays Rossi and Edda to look after her. Angeletta’s dream is to meet her grandma.

Romeo follows Rossi to Lady Isabella’s house; she believes that Angeletta just wants her money, to be allowed to inherit and so refuses to see her. Romeo is angry and reveals himself arguing that Angeletta is pure and would never do anything like that. Isabel asks what he is prepared to swear this on; when Romeo answers his life she pulls out a gun. Even in face of this Romeo does not back down and tells her she can shoot him as long as she believes him and sees Isabel. She doesn’t shoot him but refuses to see Angeletta.

Angeletta’s condition is worsening and it becomes her last wish to see her grandma, the Black Brothers decide to take her. They find a cart and sneak into Isabella’s mansion with Angeletta, even when faced with her granddaughter Isabella is cold and tells her to go away. Angeletta gives her music box to her. Her and Romeo go to the church to pray and Angeletta gets very ill. Edda is angry and Romeo goes to find doctor Casella.

There is nothing he can do, Angeletta needs treatment and needs to go to Paris for it. They don’t have enough money though Rossi goes to ask Isabella again to see Angeletta she refuses. By now the Black Brothers have taken matters into their own hands and blocked up all the chimneys in the house. They sit outside, on strike and tell her what a bad grandmother she is. Romeo turns up and tells them to stop because Angeletta loves Isabella and wouldn’t want them to do this. He also tells them that Isabella is lonely but Angeletta loves her. Isabella finally changes her mind. She visits Angeletta and decides to take her to Paris to find a cure.

A few days later nobles begin to come into the city because the grand duke is getting married. Romeo goes to meet Alfredo to give him a book from doctor Casella and they make another oath, this one to grow up and realise their dreams together; to create a world where all children can be free and learn. Later while cleaning a chimney in a hotel Romeo finds a girl escaping, it is Bianca Alfredo’s sister. She escapes into the city and is perused. Romeo finds Alfredo and Alfredo tells him their story.

They are children of nobles but their evil aunt and uncle burnt down their house, killed their parents and now is after Alfredo as he has the family seal. Alfredo had left Bianca with a farmer’s family but their aunt and uncle must have found her. The Black Brothers make a plan to rescue her. It fails at first and the uncle finds out where Alfredo is hiding. He goes to get the seal but Alfredo manages to escape. The Black brothers manage to save Bianca and the two are reunited. But Alfredo collapses and is taken to doctor Casella’s. He wakes up, the doctor tells him he will be all right but Alfredo makes him tell the truth and asks him to look after his friends when he is gone. Doctor Casella tells him that Bianca can live with him from now on.

Alfredo decides to go back to his Padrone as his contract hasn’t finished yet and leaves a note for doctor Casella asking him not to tell his friends about his illness. Alfredo and Bianca go to the secret hideout where their friends are waiting anxiously. Alfredo tells them about the seal and his aunt and uncles plans and they make a plan to sneak into the palace and tell the king the truth. Bianca becomes another honorary member of the Black Brothers.

They stake out the palace and make clothes for Bianca and Alfredo to wear. Bianca gets jealous of Alfredo and Romeo’s friendship and Alfredo explains to her why Romeo means so much to him and how he hopes they will be friends.

Giovanni tries to fight Alfredo, but learns that he is ill and they agree to fight when Alfredo is better, Alfredo and Nikita meet and Alfredo tells Nikita she will look pretty with a flower in her hair, she gets angry at him again but Alfredo coughs blood and she realises how sick he is. The Wolf Pack not realising why Giovanni is so angry decide to capture Alfredo for him telling him that Bianca is in trouble.

Romeo goes to rescue him and Nikita and Giovanni learn what their friends have done and are angry. The Wolf Pack catch up to Romeo and Alfredo and Romeo helps Alfredo escape, staying to fight the Wolf Pack alone. They beat him up and Giovanni demands to know why Romeo defends Alfredo so much. He tells them that it is because Alfredo makes everyone around him feel bigger and braver; whereas Giovanni makes his friends obey him through force. Nikita stands up for him and tells them that Alfredo has the same illness that killed Giovanni’s father. Romeo is angry and upset but he makes a deal with Giovanni that they finish the fight the next night, because he has to be at the palace to protect Alfredo no matter what. Giovanni suggests a truce and they decide to team up, Wolf Pack and Black Brothers together to help Alfredo.

Meanwhile Alfredo meets up with Bianca and the Black Brothers and they begin their plan. They begin to sneak in and are stopped by one of Alfredo’s uncle’s bodyguards. Giovanni saves them. The Wolf Pack and Romeo turn up and tell the Black Brothers about their truce. They fight more bodyguards with rocks and soot bombs. Nikita, Romeo, Alfredo and Bianca make their way into the palace while the others keep guards away.

They are almost at the feast when their uncle catches them, he tells them he doesn’t need the medal any more because he has a replica but that he is going to kill Alfredo. Romeo jumps in front of Alfredo and Nikkita knocks the uncle off balance, but Alfredo and Romeo fall off the balcony. Satisfied that at least one of them died the uncle goes to meet the king.

Bianca and Nikkita find Romeo and Alfredo and they rush off to meet the king. They get caught by some of Alfredo’s uncle’s guards but Lady Isabella rescues them. She explains to everyone who Bianca and Alfredo are, Michealo had found her and explained everything and pledges to help them.

They go into the receiving room as the aunt and uncle are talking to the king and explain that the medal is a fake. They are proven right because the kings father had made scratches in the back of the medal as a benediction in thanks that Alfredo’s father saved his life, the aunt and uncle didn’t know about this and so Alfredo was proven to be right.

The Black Brother, Giovanni and Nikkita wait vigil in the snow wondering if their friends will come back once they are accepted once again as nobles. They go back to the hideout Romeo tells the Black Brothers that if Alfredo goes home with Bianca that’s fine because he deserves happiness. Alfredo returns to them, because this is his home and they are his friends. They all go back to their houses and Bianca after a little bit of complaining goes to doctor Casella.

Alfredo and Romeo go to the church to thank God for the nights successes, Alfredo is weak and he realises he is close to dying, he and Romeo talk and he tells Romeo he is going to be reunited with his parents. He dies in Romeo’s arms telling him to keep going, to fulfil the dreams that Alfredo could not and to look after Bianca.

Romeo is devastated, his mind fogged with grief he cannot even bring himself to get out of bed the next morning, he walks around in a daze and slowly the Black Brothers, as well as the Wolf Pack learn about Alfredo’s death. Bianca is taken to see her brother’s body and as she cries she remembers his words about trusting Romeo. Dante finds Romeo and asks him to be the leader of the Black Brothers but Romeo refuses, he is too sad and too tired. He doesn’t want to accept Alfredo is dead, he doesn’t want to give him a funeral and he doesn’t want to take his place. Dante gets angry and hits Romeo; he doesn’t fight back and just repeats that he can’t do it before running away.

The next day Dante is angry and he meets Nikkita. They talk about how Alfredo never gave up, how he fought for his life. Nikita jumps into the icy cold river shouting to fight, Dante realises what she is doing and jumps in as well. They go to the hideout and tell the Black Brothers that they have to get up stop crying and fight because Alfredo would never accept them like this. Nikita helps them write a letter to Romeo telling him that they challenged him to a fight. If he won he would be their new leader, if he lost they would cast him out of the Black Brothers.

When he arrives Dante hits him and tells him if he doesn’t stand up to them they don’t accept him as a friend of Alfredo’s. They tell him they need him and tell him to stand up. Bianca turns up and adds her voices to the Brothers; Alfredo always spoke about how brave he was; now he had to prove it. Romeo remembers Alfredo’s words before he died, and the words of their vow of eternal friendship. He gets up realising that Alfredo will always be with him. Dante tells him to hit him, so that he can get back up too. He becomes the leader of the Black Brothers and they set about raising money to pay for Alfredo’s funeral.

On a day where the sky was as blue and clear as crystal they hold the funeral, with each child and friend of Alfredo giving him something precious, Romeo gives him his hat and starts to sing Pure Heart, the others join in.

Romeo is leader of the Black Brothers for the remaining few months that he is a chimney sweep, in this time he learns more about leading, and being a great friend. Just before Christmas he falls of a roof and breaks his leg, doctor Casella takes him in while he can’t work and while Romeo is there he begins to learn a great deal of things. He reads Mobey Dick and his love of learning becomes stronger. Romeo and Bianca decide to express their gratitude through a puppet show and Bianca announces that she wants to stay with doctor Casella instead of returning to her relatives and to be a doctor when she grows up and doctor Casella agrees to help her, Romeo announces that he wishes to be a teacher, and help children so they can grow up and learn and be free.

Finally the end of the six months has come and the Black Brothers are free to go home. Before them no child has survived their stint of being a chimney sweep, out of all of them only Alfredo will not leave the city alive. It is a bitter sweet time when Romeo and his friends say good bye and Romeo realises how much he has grown and how he will miss the city, the rooftops, and even Rossi who has become like a father to him. He even offers a peace present to Anzelmo.

As they are leaving they see Luini, herding a new group of boys into the inn and they feel sadness that others have to go what they went through, and hope that they boys are as lucky in their friendship as they where. They go to visit Alfredo’s grave for a last time and find Nikkita, with a flower in her hair. Giovanni and the Wolf Pack come to say goodbye and Romeo asks for one last favour. He asks that the Wolf Pack and Black Brothers join forces for good and to live in peace with the new chimney sweeps that are brought to the city. They swear a peace pact on Alfredo’s name in front of his grave another step to creating Alfredo’s world where children learn and live in freedom.

Doctor Casella drives them part of the way home they take a final look over Milano and the boys finally return to their villages. Romeo is reunited with his family. Romeo works while going to school and realises his dream of being a teacher becoming a light to help the poor and weak. He marries Bianca and they have a son, naming him Alfredo. Romeo keeps working and keeps striving towards the day where all children will run free under the Blue Skies.

Personality:

"A truly strong person will neither strike nor begrudge another. A truly strong person is someone who always has the strength to be kind to others." These are the words of Romeo’s father and it is a ideology that Romeo believes in. Romeo always does the right thing, even when it would make his life easier to do the wrong thing or to simply do nothing at all.

This is an eleven year old boy who sold himself into slavery to save his sick father, who almost drowned saving a slaver, who ran into a building that he knew was about to explode to warn the police men and his master, a man who had let him be starved, hurt, locked in a cage and arrested for a crime he knows he did not commit.

Romeo always tries to protect his friends; he is prepared to give his life to any of them and most of all to Alfredo. He often forgets that he can be hurt, or simply doesn’t care. This leads to him doing reckless things in order to help his friends, jumping in front of heights, in front of bullets, into rivers. He is prepared to die to prove that Angeletta is a pure hearted person.

However Romeo is not physically strong, he gets stronger in his time as a chimney sweep, and becomes good a climbing. However his method of protection is to stand between his friends and those that try to hurt them and hope his friends manage to escape before the threat is finished beating Romeo to the ground. He even fights those who are much bigger and stronger than him, but he also knows that peace is better and finally manages to secure a everlasting peace pact between the Wolf Pack and the Black Brothers.

Romeo has a love of learning, before going to Milano he could not read but when he left he was harbouring dreams of becoming a teacher. His dreams are very important to him because they are also Alfredo’s dreams, which were past on to him when Alfredo died. His biggest dream is to help create a world where all children run free under the Blue Skies.

It is difficult for Romeo to trust adults as he has come to expect cruelty from them, but he is well behaved and obedient and when you have won his trust you have it forever. He is a loyal friend and despite all the hardships he endures he always keeps his spirits up and helps others around him do the same.

Since becoming the leader of the Black Brothers Romeo is used to others looking to him for help and advice and when put with a group of others of his age he would come out as a natural leader but he keeps his opinions to himself when around adults.

He is full of enthusiasm for life and whatever he does he knows that Alfredo is always with him and that gives him the strength to carry on, “You are hope itself to me,” he announces to Alfredo’s grave. He stands up for the truth and hates to be accused of things he did not do. He often has trouble understanding why others are hateful or want to hurt others.

For the most part Romeo’s worldview is very clear-cut. Good people are kind and help those around them; bad people hurt and are nasty to others. People who are outside of this binary of good and bad, or who are mixtures of both confuse him, as it is not something he has come across before. He is Christian, because he is a pea sent child from early 1800’s Italy, his religion is just another aspect of his life because all those around him are also Christian. He has a strong belief in heaven though because he believes that is where Alfredo is.
myblueskies: (i have the best idea ever!)
TRIGGERS. Nothing really. Whenever Romeo feels sad or scared he puts all his efforts into keeping his spirits up and helping others do the same!
MEDICAL INFO. Nothing here.
MENTAL INFO. Nothing here either.
FOURTH-WALLING. Yep if you like. He would probably think it was magic...
PHYSICAL CONTACT. Romeo will probably squirm away from adults until they get his trust, but once he trusts him physical contact is fine. With kids his own age Romeo prefers epic hand clasping to hugs but hugs are still great! Especially flying floor tackling hugs!
ROMANCE/SEXUAL RELATIONS. Nope, he is eleven.
INJURE/KILL. Yep, he will fight as best he can, if protecting others he will stand in front of them and take all the hits until that person has ran away. His fighting ability is limited to street scrapping with kids around his own age. Injuring and killing Romeo is fine though it will probably put you on the Bad Person List. (Not always, just usually)
DEVICE HACKING. Heh go for it
THREADJACKING. Yepyep!
ANYTHING ELSE. Let me know if you want to avoid spoilers!
