Application






Name: Virgilio Innocent Vargas (1p) & Alessandro Ascanio Vargas (2p)

Representative of: Vatican

Gender: Males

Age (human and historical): Born in the IVth century, they look 23.

Brief personality of Virgilio: Virgilio was born first, without Alessandro's personality in him. For centuries and up to the beginning of the Renaissance, he looked 13, something that pleased most theologists, for his age was composed of a 3 and a 1, representing that God was unique through the Trinity. But it also pleased some men who would see in him the face and grace of an angel, such a beautiful, innocent and tender one, that a lot of them fell for him. Virgilio never was aware of it, and, always protected by guards, bishops, cardinals and popes, he never had to endure anyone's touch. Virgilio's participation in the Papal life is more the one of a theologist (he studied law at the University of Pisa, as well, but even though he's an erudite and remembers it all, he doesn't use this knowledge much) and a librarist. He also sings in Saint Peter Basilic's chorus, and, for extraordinary events, sings on his own to the worshipping.
Virgilio is very sensitive, to Beauty and to greater visions, to metaphysical matters... A part of him would like to live in ermitage, but he likes too much the physical Beauty of churches and gardens, or an ornemented book or a religious painting.


Brief personality of Alessandro: Alessandro is in several ways the opposite of Virgilio. When the Renaissance brought with it its wealth and its sins, Virgilio found himself dealing with hypocrisy and manipulation inside the walls of the Holy See, and soon, torn between his pious thoughts and the necessity to give temporal strenght to the Church, he saw his personality slowly degrading. But he couldn't bear the thought of changing, the thought of being sinful, and he put aside all of his sins, pretended they didn't belong to him... until they really didn't. Soon, Alessandro became a second personality in him.
Alessandro made better use of Virgilio's knowledge in law. Plot, blackmail and even murder was his everyday life, especially when his power was at its utmost. Close friend of Machiavelli, he believes that the end justifies the means and always thinks several times ahead, ready to fight Fortuna by his actions and preparations.
He has always had a deep love for family, but he chooses the members he wants to protect. If he must, he has no problem killing some. He sees Virgilio as a family member, not really a part of himself, and deeply loves and admires him. He would avenge him if anyone treated Virgilio in any bad way.
In love, he is the complete opposide of Virgilio, has sex very often, used to organise orgies (most of the time with women). But he has a great admiration for innocence, purity, which is why he often watches the altar boys singing. Sometimes his love for them takes another direction, however...


Brief physical description: Virgilio has blonde locks refletting his purity. When sometimes Alessandro had the control of their body for too long - like several months, which mainly happened at the end of the XVth century - his hair would become darker, brown, and Alessandro would let them grow longer. Virglio's eyes, of a nice blue, transpire innocence and wonder, while Alessandro can look at you with such a gaze that you would see the fires of Hell through them...or what awaits you.
They have a special place in the Vatican, as Representations, so none of them has to wear the clerical robes. They both like to wear clothes of the Renaissance. Virgilio often dresses with light colours - yellow, clear brown and white - while Alessandro prefers black, something he had in common with Cesare Borgia, from whom he learnt a great deal.

Brief history: The Vatican’s history as the seat of the Catholic Church began with the construction of a basilica over St. Peter’s grave in Rome in the 4th century A.D. The area developed into a popular pilgrimage site and commercial district, although it was abandoned following the move of the papal court to France in 1309. After the Church returned in 1377, famous landmarks such the Apostolic Palace, the Sistine Chapel and the new St. Peter’s Basilica were erected within the city limits. Vatican City was established in its current form as a sovereign nation with the singing of the Lateran Pacts in 1929.
The area off the west bank of the Tiber River that comprises the Vatican was once a marshy region known as Ager Vaticanus. During the early years of the Roman Empire, it became an administrative region populated by expensive villas, as well as a circus built in the gardens of Emperor Caligula’s mother. After much of Rome was leveled in a fire in A.D. 64, Emperor Nero executed St. Peter and other Christian scapegoats at the base of Vatican Hill, where they were buried in a necropolis.
Having embraced Christianity with the Edict of Milan in 313, Emperor Constantine I began constructing a basilica over St. Peter’s tomb in 324. St. Peter’s Basilica became a spiritual center for Christian pilgrims, leading to the development of housing for clergymen and the formation of a marketplace that became the thriving commercial district of Borgo.
Following an attack by Saracen pirates that damaged St. Peter’s in 846, Pope Leo IV ordered the construction of a wall to protect the holy basilica and its associated precincts. Completed in 852, the 39-foot-tall wall enclosed what was inaugurated Leonine City, an area covering the current Vatican territory and the Borgo district. The walls were continually expanded and modified until the reign of Pope Urban VIII in the 1640s.
Although the pontiff traditionally lived at the nearby Lateran Palace, Pope Symmachus built a residence adjacent to St. Peter’s in the early 6th century. It was expanded hundreds of years later by both Eugene III and Innocent III, and in 1277 a half-mile-long covered passageway was assembled to link the structure to Castel Sant’Angelo. However, the buildings were all abandoned with the shift of the papal court to Avignon, France, in 1309, and over the next half-century the city fell into disrepair.
Following the return of the Catholic Church in 1377, the clergy sought to restore the walled city’s luster.
Nicholas V circa 1450 commenced construction of the Apostolic Palace, eventually the permanent home of his successors, and his collection of books became the foundation of the Vatican Library. In the 1470s, Sixtus IV began work on the famed Sistine Chapel, featuring frescoes created by such leading Renaissance artists as Botticelli and Perugino.
Significant changes to the city took place after Julius II became pope in 1503. Julius commissioned Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Chapel ceiling in 1508, and tapped architect Donato Bramante design the Belvedere Courtyard. The pontiff also elected to tear down the 1,200-year-old St. Peter’s Basilica and have Bramante build a new one in its place.
The death of Julius in 1513 and Bramante the following year led to a decades-long dispute over how to continue the project, until Michelangelo ended the deadlock in 1547 with his choice to follow Bramante’s original design. Giacomo della Porta completed St. Peter’s celebrated dome in 1590, and work on the grand structure finally finished in 1626. Measuring 452 feet tall and encompassing 5.7 acres, the new St. Peter’s stood as the world’s biggest church until the completion of the Ivory Coast’s Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro in 1989.
The Vatican Museums originated from the sculpture collection of Julius II, its earliest gallery opened to the public by Pope Clement XIV in 1773 and expanded by Pope Pius VI. Subsequent popes continued to bolster the renowned collections over the years, with the Gregorian Egyptian Museum, the Ethnological Museum and the Collection of Modern and Contemporary Religious Art among the additions.
Popes traditionally held power over regional territories known as the Papal States until 1870, when the unified Italian government claimed virtually all of the land outside of the city walls. A standoff between the church and secular government ensued for the next 60 years, until an agreement reached with the Lateran Pacts in February 1929. Signed by Benito Mussolini on behalf of King Victor Emmanuel III, the pacts established Vatican City as a sovereign entity distinct from the Holy See, and granted the church $92 million as compensation for the loss of the Papal States.
The Vatican remains the home of the pope and the Roman Curia, and the spiritual center for some 1.2 billion followers of the Catholic Church. The world’s smallest independent nation-state, it covers 109 acres within a 2-mile border, and possesses another 160 acres of holdings in remote locations. Along with the centuries-old buildings and gardens, the Vatican maintains its own banking and telephone systems, post office, pharmacy, newspaper, and radio and television stations. Its 600 citizens include the members of the Swiss Guard, a security detail charged with protecting the pope since 1506.


Religious affiliation: They are the heart of Catholicism.

Any special powers or abilities: None.
