Properties of Love
(2) Love moves the heart in beautiful and unpredictable ways.
(1) Love cannot be coerced, contained, or compelled.
(1) Love can redeem even the worst of us.
(1) Love, when not eternal, ends in heartbreak.
(1) Love justifies itself.
(1) Love resides in the heart.
Bonds and Afflictions
(A5) The Aegis of Shemhazai. The Aegis is not simply a miracle; it embodies how Valentine has embraced his own suffering – this Bond reflects his masochism, his self-loathing, his smug comfort in knowing that Hell always has his back (in a fucked-up Hellish sort of way), and his own love for his Imperator.
(B3) Valentine’s lovers and his children, the Nephilim.
(B2) I’m a sucker for the underdog, revolutionaries, and lost causes.
(B1) Cars, motorcycles, horses – whatever, Val likes shit he can drive that goes fast.
(B1) I’ve spent the last century or building mortal wealth, power, and influence over several worlds, and thus have lots of friends/family/lovers/houses in unlikely places.
(B1) The pitiful remains of the code of heaven. My heart is moved by the dramatic, the beautiful and the abstract; I love the performing arts and I can like talk to people through my flowers and that sort of bullshit.
(B1) No one can resist my suave charm! Too bad I can’t make someone else love me without me returning the favor.
(B1) I excel in manly pursuits.
(B1) The color red, it is mine.
