PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION
A typical Brit, Sloan is prone to understatement in daily life, although he is curt and to-the-point whenever addressing wrestling crowds or opponents. New to America and 4CW, Sloan keeps to himself most of the time, although that’s not to say that he is unfriendly. In fact, he is more than happy to give fans or fellow professional wrestlers a minute of his time whenever asked to. This generosity and good-naturedness, however, fades quickly whenever he is confronted with unwarranted aggression and rudeness - be it from a neckbeard smark or a cocky opponent. In short, prepare for a sharp telling-off (if one is lucky) or a quick and vicious beatdown if you are unnecessarily abrasive to Sloan for no good reason at all.


APPEARANCE DESCRIPTION
Standing tall and strong at 6’6 and 245lbs, Sloan possesses a muscular build honed by years of boxing and strength training in the gym. Slightly olive-skinned due to some mixed ancestry in his family tree, he is considered to be fairly good-looking by many, even modelling on a freelance basis back in the United Kingdom. That being said, his looks are slightly marred due to his profession - several scars can be seen on his body, though thankfully none of his face thus far. Sloan alternates between being clean-shaven and maintaining a trimmed beard. He does not have any tattoos or piercings at the moment.

Outside of the ring, Sloan often dresses for his own comfort, rather than style. A typical outfit would include a leather jacket, either a t-shirt or a shirt, jeans, and either sneakers or boots. He is not a fan of outrageous fashion trends, and his wardrobe tends to reflect this aspect of his personality.

IN-RING GEAR:
Sloan often goes shirtless in the ring, donning wrestling tights, boots and wristbands for a clean and svelte look. On PPVs and special events, Sloan might don an open-styled leather long coat over his usual in-ring gear, with the date of the occasion emblazoned at the back of it.

Sloan tends to dress in a dark colour scheme, with most of his gear reflecting the same “back-to-basics” fashion that his normal wardrobe encompasses.


STYLE & MOVESET
WRESTLING STYLE: An individual who more often than not possesses a height and reach advantage over his contemporaries, Sloan predominantly wrestles with a powerhouse/brawler move-set. He is not a particularly technical wrestler and is thus inclined to proceed with his stand-up game when it comes to bouts in the squared circle. Sloan also almost never goes to the air or busts out a submission hold unless he absolutely has to; even so, these moves are often only done as a desperate counter or to inflict additional damage that could not be made anywhere else.

STANDING
  • Double leg flapjack, can be used as a counter to an incoming opponent
  • German suplex
  • Gutwrench suplex
  • Knee lifts to the opponent's midsection
  • Kneeling facebuster, often used as a back body drop counter
  • Multiple forearm clubs to the chest of a cornered opponent
  • Multiple powerbombs (executable only to lighter opponents as well as opponents who are at most 100lbs heavier)
  • Scoop slam
  • Short-arm clothesline
  • Turnbuckle powerbomb

GROUND
  • Football kick to a seated opponent’s back
  • German suplex to a fallen opponent
  • Gutwrench suplex to a fallen opponent
  • Mounted punches and elbows
  • Repeated knee strikes to an opponent's ribs

RUNNING
  • Running clothesline
  • Running double axe handle
  • Running knee strike, sometimes to a rope hung opponent or to a cornered opponent

AERIAL
  • Diving clothesline
  • Top-rope elevated gutwrench suplex
  • Top-rope elevated german suplex

TAUNTS
  • Cracks knuckles on both hands while jogging in place
  • Raises his right arm while opponent is in his grip before lifting them up for the "Sent Down"

SIGNATURE
Sleeper hold with bodyscissors: This is perhaps the only submission move used by Sloan, and should only be utilised in a “Submission” or “I Quit” match.
Red Carnation: High-impact STO. Most often utilised as a counter to an oncoming opponent to switch momentum over to Sloan.
Viva Voce:  Running bicycle kick. Used as a set-up move for the "Sent Down”, although on rare occasions can be sufficient to pin weakened opponents on its own.

FINISHER
Sent Down: Small package driver. This can be hit off elevated platforms such as the top rope or the announcer’s table, although such variations are rarely done outside of a last-gasp effort (which is to say, only when permission is granted by myself).


CHARACTER BACKGROUND
Born in Oxfordshire, England on 9 August 1995, Augustus Sloan grew up in a low-income household. Though his family faced numerous financial hardships throughout his youth, Sloan had the significant benefit of growing up in a happy and functioning home - something that could not be said for many of his peers. This encouraging environment served to be a difference maker; Sloan managed to do well in school, stay (relatively) out of trouble and with the aid of a partially-funded scholarship for underprivileged youths, became the first member of his family to pursue higher education - and at the renowned University of Oxford at that.

However, his family could not afford the remaining sum of money for his education, and Sloan was not willing to further bother them with this burden. He was this close to giving up his reserved spot in college and working alongside his father at the motor manufacturing plant when he chanced upon an advertisement sourcing for professional wrestling competitors in a tournament. The winner of the tournament would be awarded 20,000 - more than enough to cover his tuition fee for the next three years. Taking a leap of faith, Sloan applied for it, and despited his lack of proper technical training, his superior strength and sheer willpower let him dominate the competition and win the prize money that would allow him to secure his education.His overwhelming victory captured the attention of the local press, who eventually nicknamed the youngster “The Ox” for his musculature, aggressive fighting style and status as both a Oxford native and future Oxonian.

Though Sloan did enrol and eventually complete his BA in Human Sciences at St John's College, his eyes were now open to the potential that professional wrestling had. Firmly set on proving himself to be amongst the best wrestlers on earth, Sloan continued to fight throughout university to support his living expenses, and competed in professional wrestling promotions all over Great Britain and Ireland. Now, he has brought his talents over to America, where he hopes to test his skills against some of the best in the world.

REGULAR ENTRANCE DESCRIPTION
The opening riff of “Wild Eyes" by Parkway Drive blasts through the speakers of the arena as the lights in the arena start pulsating slightly. The lighting then turns to a light tinge of Oxford blue as smoke starts pouring out on stage. All eyes turn towards the entrance curtain as they await the arrival of the British competitor.

POWERS: "Now, introducing [first/his opponent/her opponent/their opponent]... from Oxford, England..."

A geared-up Augustus Sloan comes out from the entrance and stands for a moment amidst the smoke, his body already shining slightly under the lights from his warm-up backstage. Wasting little time, he makes his way to the ring just as the song kicks in and the crowd sings along with it.

"Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhhhhh”
"Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhhhhh”
"Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohhhhhh”

POWERS: "Weighing in at two-hundred and forty-five pounds, he is "The Ox"... AUGUUUUSTUS SLOOOOOOOOAN!"

"The Ox" steps into the ring, and the lights go back to their original state. Sloan then strides to the centre of the ring, glancing from time to time at those currently in the ring with him, wary of being caught off-guard by a sneak attack. He then raises both his arms to the raucous crowd, his mind focused on the match that is to come ahead.
