"The true victory is in survival of the spirit."
After years of fruitless efforts to bring culture to the increasingly blood crazed Mavericks, Crystal Snail was swept under Ouroboros and reprogrammed to serve them. Now, at last, he has a chance to actually shine under his new masters. In searching for inspiration, he decided to adopt a modified form of Mohism - emphasizing universal love for China's people and asceticism, but with a willingness to use aggression for the greater good. Crystal Snail uses his talent for creating wondrous works of synthesized crystal to express his beliefs and ideas, believing that by keeping the culture healthy the whole state will be stronger. Crystal is usually calm, collected and kind to nearly everyone with a flair for the dramatic, though he can get rather heated when criticizing other works or being dismissed due to his loyalties. However, when called to battle he doesn't hesitate to use his same crystal generating properties to fight his foes with cunning and trap-making, encasing his foes in rapidly hardening gel or even just using his own shell as a weapon. His ultimate goal is to be remembered as a great tribute to China's artistic works, even when he must use said art in a weaponized capacity.
