    Being the only son of a ruthless business tycoon and a servile mother, Ion was raised strictly, with numerous private tutors attending to him and lecturing him day and night in his early youth. Every day after school and even on weekends, it was one lesson after another. Mathematics, economics, foreign languages, sports, music … on and on the tutors crammed the knowledge into him. Ion never had time to make any friends at school because he was always trying so hard to learn everything. The only “friend” he ever had was Shinra, a distant and elder relative who attended the same school. The senior was one of the only people who provided Ion with any sympathy, comfort and fun.
    At home, an old maid named Maria always attended him instead of his own parents. Later on, the tutors slowly began to stop coming and his life loosened up, which was a huge relief for Ion as he always wished for more time to spend together with his parents. Even more to his surprise, his father and mother began to stay more at home. Ion, thinking his parents were finally taking time off to spend more time with him happily and blindly welcomed this false dream.

    As time passed by, he noticed strange behaviors from his father. He began to smoke and come home drunk. His mother began to have dark circles and bags under her eyes as well as cuts, bruises and small burn marks on her limbs. Every time he caught sight of her, he noticed how red and puffy his mothers eyes were, as if she had been crying for hours … He tried numerous times to approach his mother but she only pushed him away and scolded that it was none of his business. As the situation became worse, Ion discovered that his father’s business had been on a sharp decline, lingering on months of bankruptcy and debt. To cope with the failing business, his father indulged himself into alcohol and began to display violent behaviors. His mother, being the obedient and submissive maiden, did nothing to resist his abuses. She loved him no matter what injury he inflicted upon her out of rage. Ion was also powerless to stop his father. He was afraid of the man and avoided him whenever he could so he would not face the same abusive treatment as his unfortunate mother.

    One night, a loud crash of glass woke Ion from his sleep. Walking nervously into the living room, he saw a horrid sight. His own father was beating his own mother. The woman’s face was bloody and bruised badly, just barely alive … Horrified and shocked; Ion grabbed a knife from the wall decor and planted the blade into his father’s throat with blind fury. As his father fell back, choking on his own blood, his mother slowly regained consciousness, only to screech in horror at the sight of her dying husband. That moment, her fragile mind was broken and she began to scream and screech. Ion tried to calm her down but when she noticed the blood and the sword in his hand, her husband’s blood, she raised a murderous tone and accused Ion of being a murderer. She then lunged at him and tried to strangle him. Struggling for his life and without thinking, he pierced his mother’s chest with the knife. Immediately the strength in her arms vanished and she spat out more blood. Moments before her death, she glared at him and cursed him under her breath. “Murderer …. Traitor … Devil ...” Unable to believe what had happened, Ion dropped the knife and ran away. Aimlessly, he ran through the raining city, into the darkest places, where nobody would find him. As the night passed and a grey morning arrived, Ion awoke with a strange device next to him. Confused as to what and where this device came from, he sought for some answers. As he wandered around the city, he stumbled upon Shinra, who also possessed the same device. At first, Ion was frightened because of what he had done last night, but Shinra only hushed him, as if he understood everything. Without a word, he led Ion back to his home and explained everything…

    The murder of Ion’s parents became headline news the next day and Maria was the primary suspect of the case, with Ion deemed as missing… Shinra took in Ion and together, they escaped to Zone 2 and began to re-live their normal lives …

Hi there, I'm making a game and I was wondering if I could feature this great design in it? (full credit given of course)

No, sorry.
I prefer to keep my OCs for my own personal use.

But if you're looking for character designs, it might be a good idea to browse through some custom adoptables many people are starting to offer.
