Name: Vin Ghostal a.k.a. V.3.
Location: Camden, New Jersey
Entrance Music: "The Saga Continues," P.Diddy
Style Most Resembles: Combination of Bret Hart and Scott Hall
Face/Heel: Heel
Finishing Move: The Cutting Edge (Razor's Edge)
Faction: Tag team partner with Xille

1. How would you describe your character? Start with the obvious; physically, color hair and eyes even. Remember the style of wrestling your character incorporates.

Physically, he resembles the real Ghostal...blonde-streaked hair, brown eyes, average height and weight (6 feet 175), but in excellent physical condition. Not terribly strong, but well-built and blessed with a great deal of endurance. He dresses entirely in gold...shiny gold flared pants, gold boots, gold vest, gold sunglasses, gold jewelry, gold cutoff gloves, gold elbowpads.

2. What is your character's main motivation? What drives him/her to do what they do, to act how they act?

Even during his days as leader of the Foundation, Vin Ghostal has always been his own biggest fan; there's a reason the Foundation was originally named after him. He's driven almost entirely by a deep-seated greed for championship gold...this greed is spawned by the fact that, as a close personal friend of the AWF's creator, Commissioner Vaccaro, Ghostal believes that he was the man chosen to carry all of the AWF's gold. Since Vaccaro's disappearance, this greed has manifested itself in Ghostal's belief that only he is worthy of carrying on the AWF's legacy in Vaccaro's absence. It was not long after Vaccaro's disappearance that Ghostal abandoned the Foundation and ventured out on his own...he is now driven not only by greed, but by a desperate need for revenge against those who were members of the GPA when they screwed Ghostal in his match against Morpheus at ArchiveMania III.

3. Who does your character trust most? Could be a faction member or family member even.

After the GPA turned against him at ArchiveMania III, Ghostal trusts no one. If he had to choose one person on the roster, it would be his tag team championship teammate Xille, but their relationship is more a marriage of convenience than a friendship.

4. What is your character's greatest strength? Greatest weakness?

Ghostal's greatest weakness, by far, is his ego. He can't fathom the idea that anyone on the AWF roster could possibly beat him; his few defeats (to Sean O'Con, The Game, and Sixswitch) torture him to the point of insanity. By contrast, his greatest strength, apart from his finishers (the Whirlwind [Razor's Edge] and the Cutting Edge [delayed vertical suplex into a sit-down powerbomb]), has to be his desperate nature. Because of his inexhaustable belief that he and only he is worthy of Federation gold, he will do beyond anything to win AWF championships, and to hold onto them once they're in his grasp.

5. What are your character's prejudices? Does he/she have any at all, be it about other wrestlers or even people in general?

Ghostal doesn't really have any prejudices of consequence.

6. To whom does your character owe loyalty to? Maybe a faction leader, a tag partner, or even the commissioner and owner.

Ghostal is loyal to no one, not even Xille.

7. What are your character's favorite and least favorite things? Expand on this, tell why.

Ghostal's obsessed with gold, both championships and otherwise. He's changed his hair color to closer match his outfit and his belts. Before abandoning the Foundation, he wore black and blue. Since then, however, his obsession with glory has convinced him that gold is the only color for him.

8. Does your character have any recurring mannerisms? Maybe they mumble when it's quiet, or does he/she always look at one person in a particular way? This can be anything from catchphrases to putting an opponent through a table after every match.

His most obvious recurring mannerism is the line with which he insists on concluding all his interviews, "That's just crazy!" And his favorite personal toy is his shiny, gold-coated bat which follows him most everywhere he goes.

9. What is your character's psychology? Delve into his mind, give his reasons. What is his mindset?

See #2 and #4...he's confident, self-centered, and flashy, but extremely unstable...very few things can truly set him off, but the one man that annoys him more than anyone, despite his vendetta against the GPA and Viewfind, is Sean O'Con.

10. How would your character's parents describe him? This is most useful because it makes you look at him/her from the outside perspective of the parents, who can be the most supportive and critical people in his life.

His parents hate him. They know that he's extremely talented, but his ever-growing ego made raising him a living hell...there's no teaching a kid who genuinely thinks he can do no wrong.

11. What are your character's highest ambitions? It doesn't have to be limited to in-ring achievement.

Ghostal has always been obsessed with being rich...his parents were lower-middle class, and ever since he left the house he has been driven by the search for wealth.

12. What is your character's ultimate goal? What's the one thing, above all else that he does what he does?

Ever since he first stepped into the AWF, Ghostal's ultimate goal has been to retire Sean O'Con. He and the O'Con are polar opposites, and the two men flat-out despise one another.

13. Does your character have a secret? And if so, what would happen if it were found out?

Ghostal has a secret...and it involves his relations with the lovely ladies. If it were to get out, the person responsible for making his secret known would certainly suffer a career-ending injury, or worse.

14. What does your character do to relax?

At this point, Ghostal has very little relaxation time on his hands. His ongoing feud with the GPA keeps him constantly on edge, and his attempted suicide shortly after ArchiveMania III means that the few people who care about him will always hesitate to leave him alone.

15. If your character was given $100, what would he do with it?

Almost undoubtedly, he would buy more gold jewelry.

16. Which superstar does your character most want to face in the ring? Why?

More than anything, Ghostal wants a one-on-one confrontation with Viewfind, a man he has never faced in the squared circle. Other than Viewfind, he would also be interested in another series of matches with T.C., with whom he had several legendary confrontations in early 2003.

17. What are the designs of your character's tights/leotard? Do you have a logo?

See #1.

18. Who is your character's closest friend?

If anyone, Xille.

19. Who does your character love? Hate? Fear?

Ghostal tolerates Xille, but loves no one but himself. He hates Viewfind, those who were members of the GPA at the time of the screwjob, The Game, and Sean O'Con. He would never admit it, but Ghostal fears everything he hates, especially the HeartBrend Kid.

20. If you could give your character one piece of advice, what would it be?

The key to life is believing in someone else at least as much as you believe in yourself.
