Paid Request: The Suicide Squad: Robert DuBois / Bloodsport [ISTP 8w9]

Function Order: Ti-Se-Ni-Fe

Bloodsport wound up in prison because he accepts money for killing people, a lucrative business that caused him to set out after Superman with a Kryptonite bullet. He thinks his way through problems in search of solutions that won’t get himself killed, but is also amoral in his logical makeup. When his daughter tells him she got arrested for stealing, Bloodsport is more annoyed that she was so stupid as to get caught (he tells her next time to take a buddy along who can play lookout and warn her, so she can get away) and because she got caught stealing something “stupid” (getting caught is dumb, getting caught stealing something that lame is even dumber) than he considers it a “bad” or “wrong” thing to do. He is often straightforward and doesn’t mince his words, calling out others for idiotic statements, but also willing to admit when they are right (even if it annoys him). Bloodsport adapts quickly to his environment and makes decisions in the spur of the moment; he doesn’t hesitate to blast and fight his way through intense situations, and often makes impulsive decisions without thinking them through (such as when he kills people in the village, only to find out they were the Resistance and useful to them / friends with someone who saved one of the squad’s life). He is quick to scale buildings and confidently leads the squad, although he tells the woman who blackmails him into it at first that he is NOT a leader. It proves true, since he keeps to himself and does his own thing within the group more than he tries to control anyone around him. Bloodsport is quick to catch on to things (he realizes his superior is going to use his daughter against him, and is angry about that), but doesn’t appear to ponder beyond what lies on the surface. He has no morals or scruples, but will lose his temper and scream at people when provoked, escalating into a shouting match with his own daughter rather than knowing she needs comfort and reassurances. Emotions are not his thing.

Bloodsport is all about power dynamics and heeding them; he is blunt, forceful in his opinions, and unafraid to use force to accomplish whatever task he has set for himself, whether that includes mounting a rescue mission or killing someone on his own squad for going off-book. He has a bad temper, is always telling people off, bucks authority even to his superiors (and the woman who could blow his head off with the touch of a button), and his answers are often decisive. He has a black and white mentality, you are either for him or against him, but he softens around those in need of protection and rises to the occasion. He and his daughter engage in a screaming match when she comes to him in prison to confess she’s in trouble and needs his help. But he also numbs out and ignores any kind of emotions at times, pushing aside his anger to maintain peace when necessary, and calmly going about his business, even if that means scraping gum off the floor in the prison.

Paid Request: The Suicide Squad: Rick Flag [ISTJ 1w2]

Functional Order: Si-Te-Fi-Ne

Rick brings in a lot of experience from the military in dealing with his assigned ‘suicide squad’ – at first, he hates all of them for being sociopathic criminals (“scumbags” in his mind), but the more time he spends with Harley in particular, the more he comes to see the merits in them being reckless, opportunistic, and good in a fight. He finds it frustrating when they don’t listen to him and break formation, or go into battle without being given an exact order, because he tends to toe the line with his boss and obey her—up until a moral line is crossed, and then he refuses to go along with it (he won’t cover up the American involvement in the torture of innocent men, women, and children, causing him to get into a fight to the death with Peacemaker). He has a patriotic viewpoint and likes to ingratiate himself with the locals, in an attempt to work with them toward a goal. (If they help each other, she can avenge her murdered family and he can complete his mission.) Rick wants to get in and out with a minimum of fuss, but also at times lets his emotions to get in the way of his logical judgments. It would be more reasonable to leave Harley behind, yet he has them all go on a rescue mission for her because he’s falling in love with her. Though sent in the first film to rid June of the demonic entity possessing her, Rick fell in love with her (a violation of his orders). He also became friendly with those in his squad and went out of his way to reward them for good behavior (allowing Deadshot to have a longer unsupervised visit with his daughter). His scruples won’t allow him to participate in any action he sees as immoral. Rick doesn’t question things at all, and tends to believe what his superior officers tell him, but is also capable of completely changing the purpose of his mission and its intent, veering off his end goal to find a girl he cares about, and instead of wanting to protect and destroy the information he found, caring about making it public, because…

… it’s the right thing to do. Rick hates most of the people he has to work with on a daily basis because they are all “scumbags” in his mind – criminals from all kinds of different classes, who have no ethics and no concern for the common good he so esteems. It’s only after they prove themselves not without conscience that he starts to care about them. He refuses to do anything he deems immoral, including take part in a cover-up of the sins of the government he holds so dear. He can’t remain silent about the horribly unethical experiments performed by the US government and their allies on prisoners and bystanders. He also thinks a great deal with his heart and his emotions rather than his head – falling in love with women he shouldn’t, allowing them to influence his decisions, and being unable to separate his personal feelings from their fates. He cares about loving and being loved, and subconsciously pursues this when around women.

Paid Request: The Suicide Squad: Christopher Smith / Peacemaker [ESTJ 1w9]

Function Order: Te-Si-Ne-Fi

Peacemaker is a straightforward communicator, who makes an awful lot of assumptions based on what he knows, and of his own personal experience – like assuming Cleo is going to be lazy because she’s a millennial (that’s why she’s sleeping in her cell), or asking Polka-Dot man if he’s called that because his power is to throw polka-dots at people (actually… it’s true, which Peacemaker immediately figures out when the man doesn’t answer him). He has a theme of ‘liberty’ ongoing and argues fiercely in favor of it, driven when he questions Bloodsport’s leadership skills (with the assumption that his own are superior – along with his superior assassination techniques, and his contempt for a man who accepts money to kill people). He mows through people, showing off his techniques and skill, without remorse or thinking about whether they should die. One of his favorite tricks is bullets rigged to explode, showing his perverse sense of humor. He often says off the wall things, using disturbing metaphors about body parts and linking it to liberty, questioning whether the mission has to do with butt-holes, etc. He also has poor inferior Fi, in the sense that he becomes morally outraged at the idea of killing people for money, but has decided to kill them for peace himself. Since he has no real conscience, he has no problem killing others on his squad to ‘protect the mission’ and do what he has been told by his superior officer.

A deeply misguided sociopath, Peacemaker devoted his life to being a “pacifist diplomat” who grew so committed to peace, he decided to enforce it by killing all those who stand in its way. He feels self-righteous about this decision, because it’s less base than killing people for money (he dislikes Bloodsport because of this, and the two men engage in a skills-related pissing contest to prove each other superior). He is confident, even cocky, and self-assured, making immediate decisions and choosing to enforce peace through violence. In a misguided way, he thinks he’s doing the “right thing,” even if that involves a massive cover-up and killing the people he has grown closer to over the last few days. He over-emphases his 9 wing, which also numbs him to anything he dislikes or finds unpleasant; he reframes it into a positive self-image, to embolden his ego.
