Headcanon:

Sollux was adopted by a dersite carapace and spent all of his life so far in the low district of derse. Born psiionic he was already bound to be an outcast even to his own race, needless to say that how much his carapace guardian regretted adopting him after he found out of this young troll's psychic power. Only had he known he would never have adopted this little freak of nature for all the money in Derse, Skaia and Prospit altogether. Sollux's guardian never cared for him too much, gave him just enough to keep him healthy so he could recieve the sweet monthly reward he could gain for fulfilling his duty as a Dersite and providing a young Lusus-less troll with care and love. Minus the love part, however the regulators didn't really need to know that.

Everything went fine in the young troll's early years, until that fatal day where his guardian found out about his telekinetic powers. Young Sollux had always been quite moody, even as a grub, throwing tantrums over little nothings, being picky about everything, basically making his carapace guardian's life somewhat difficult. However when he reached the age of two, weird things started happening whenever the little devil would get emotional about something. Objects would start moving, plates would shatter, nearby candlelights flickering... at first it all passed as coincidences, but his custodian slowly made the link between those incidents and the peculiar young troll he had in his care. However, he refused to see it until that fatal day, when Sollux was about 3 human years, where "feeding him to keep him healthy" would suddently change to "feeding him to keep him alive".

It had been a long day of work for Sollux's guardian and he knew he had to tend to the young one as soon as he was done with mechanics. It was time for the troll's bath. Everything was ready, warm water at his disposition, but the little prick was nowhere to be found. Sollux hated baths. In fact he hated to be touched in general, but baths were even worse for he feared water more than anything else. When his guardian finally found him hiding in a pile of dirty cloths is when it happened. The carapace tried to force and drag the youngster along in spite of his resistance which cause him to get enraged. It was only seconds before red and blue beams were coming from the psiionic's eyes. His guardian found cover behind furniture right in time. Half their habitaion has gone to ashes in less than 5 seconds. From that day on, the carapace cared for the young troll no more and kept him around strictly for the income he would recieve for doing so.

Things never really got better for Sollux as he grew older, not that he really cared much. Once he entered school, the other young carapaces and trolls would make fun of him, be it for his odd eye color or his bizarre attitude, but it never mattered to him. He did not care for other kids and would rather stray from the groups and mess around with little pieces of electronics, little chips he would have stolen from his guardian's workshop or reading books or... muttering to himself. At least that's what everyone though. He was in fact responding to the voices he heard in his head continuously, day and night. Though most of the time he'd rather ignore them, sometimes he would attempt to converse with them, even though most of what they said never made sense to him until he reached an older age.

It was around that era, when he was about 6 human years old, that he met his first "friend". She was a troll his age attending the same school and the only on to ever approach him while he was having one of his strange "self conversation" episodes. That is when she told him she heard them too, the voices of the dead, that they shared the capacity to use psychic powers on a certain level. From that day on they started spending time together, however neither of them talked much, they mostly sat together and did their own little thing. Sometimes, however, Aradia would share with him little bits of ancient knowledge she would have acquired through the voices that spoke to her and in return, Sollux would describe to her the visions of apocalypse he would have from time to time.

Through his life, Sollux's capacity to see the future evolved. It all started with nightmares he had as a child, blurry uncontroled visions he would have at night. As he grew older he learnt to control his power better, along with all his telekinetic powers. He learnt to project his mind into the future and to other segments of the present than his own and with a lot of practice and concentration he was able to have clearer visions of the future than he did at a younger age in his dreams. It was only around the age of thirteen that he could finally get a good hang of his powers and use them efficiently after years of practice on objects (to his guardian's misery) and meditation. Even with all the mental exercises he wen through, though, he could never make the voices in his head any quieter, in fact they grew more bothersome as he aged and he had more and more problem to ignore them. He also started wearing special blue and red glasses that he made himself to protect his neighborhoor from random outbursts of psychic lasers. He started making the link between the growth of his telekinetic powers and those voices, but that is still only hypotethical to this day.
Aradia was the only one to understand him, but even so he felt somewhat jealous of her because she seemed to be able to cope with the voices a whole lot better than he ever could. He knew they would someday drive him mad, but he never dared peeking into the future for confirmation.

There is only one other troll who ever caught his attention a little bit later in his life. She was a female troll from the high distric of Derse. They accidentally met one day when he bumped into her while running an errand for his guardian. His first impression of her was rather negative, but so was his first impression of everyone. Being moody as he was, he got quite mad at her for "being in his way" and "not paying attention" even though he was actually the one distracted by the sound of dead trolls whispering in his head. The young female simply smiled at him and asked him his name and from then on, he felt more comfortable around her than he did with most other kids his age. Feferi and him spent some time together and he grew sort of fond of her in a way that he does not quite understand, but her upbeat and cheerful personality can appease the most brutal of his mood swings. Whenever he's in a bind it seems like she always have the right thing say to calm him down.

Aside from perfectionning his psychic powers, Sollux also developped a taste for hacking. The primary purpose of this skill of his was to nag his custodian and make him pay for all the carelessness he was put through on a daily basis. He successfully sabotaged many of the pieces his carapace Guardian worked on for the army, which eventually resulted in the loss of his job as a repairman. After that, 14 human years old Sollux had to find another roof over his head. He embraced that freedom and found himself a tiny tiny, dirty, affordable appartment to live in. As soon as he got there it got easier for him to refine his art of hacking and become probably one of the most skilled hackers in all of Derse, if not Prospit and Skaia as well.

He continued to lead his life rather normally until the Condesce's coup d'état. He traded in his trademark blue and red glasses for a pair of regular tinted shades in the same shade so he could conceal his peculiar psiionic eyes. Since he heard a rebellion was organising, he decided to join up the rebel's rank along with his friend Aradia. His appartment no longer is since highbloods have started getting violent and ravaged what used ot be his home, which forces him to live in inns and taverns for now.

Physical head canon:

Sollux is fairly skinny since he hasn't been fed properly when he was a child. He's also fairly tall, but not too much, probably about 5'9'' or 5'10''. It would be harder to grow any taller with poor nutrition. He keeps himself very clean, though, in fact he's kind of a clean freak.

Roleplay sample:

He hated the stench of alcohol and crowds of people, but he had to work the evening if he wanted a place to rest for the night. He quietly did his job without complaining, even though the buzz of drunken chatter over the Ancient's voices were driving him insane. It was like an immense orchestra of chaos was resonating in his head and he felt like he could not bear it any longer. But he would. He had no choice. Life had become tough since the rise of the highbloods and he could not take the chance of being discovered. He constantly lied about his hemospectrum and tried to conceal his powers. He would only use them if he was in trouble.

The barmaid asked him why he kept his shades inside.

"I'm very sensitive to light", he coldy replied.

She gave him a weird look but dropped the issue. Everyone simply regarded his weird antics as madness rather than making a big deal out of it. It did somewhat piss him off, but now was not the time to throw a tantrum, no matter how pathetic people were being. Under no circumstances he could reveal his identity as a psiionic. It would most certainly be the end of him. The place reeked of highbloods that day and he decided that tonight would be the last he spent working at this tavern. It was safer to leave as soon as possible, this district was not safe anymore. Soon, neither of them would be. He had ot meet with the leader of the resistance as soon as possible...

OOC:

Hi! My name is Mia and I'm from Quebec/Canada. I'm 21 years old and like a few other people on this forum, my mother tongue is French even though I'm pretty much perfectly bilingual. I study languages in college, I was supposed to graduate this semester however due to some unfortunate events I'm not sure it will be possible anymore. I really, REALLY enjoy drawing, I used to study cartoon animation and I try to draw at least once everyday. I will gladly accept to draw anyone's avatar if you would like me to! (I will make a post about this in a more appropriate section later on)

Sollux is officially the cutest thing when he was a kid. How to avoid a bath? By getting dirtier!

I like how you captured Sollux silent retreat at becoming insane and still not allowing himself to fully live while he still has some control over himself. I kinda want to root for the guy

Baw, Sollux was so cute as a little un~! <3

I really enjoyed reading about his development and what a tough time the poor guy had! You can really feel the looming threat he always has to deal with, what with being a Psiionic

Awesome job! I hope we get to rp with one another~! 8DDDD
