In many ways, Damien Touya contradicts himself! While he enjoys traveling and adventure (as mentioned in the previous chapter), Touya can be very slow to move. Stability and security are as important to him as exploring new worlds. Damien Touya needs to find a place in his life to express both urges: the impulse to take risks and to go where he has never gone before, and the need for order, predictability, and staying with the tried-and-true.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once Touya's course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose.
Damien Touya has a very practical nature; he wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts, and he is not one to concoct wild dreams that are unlikely to come into fruition. Most of his "wild dreams" have to do with material achievements, well-being and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the full. Though Damien Touya will work long and persistently, he also has a strong sensual and comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, Touya can be enormously lazy at times and has a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Damien Touya also loves the beauty of the natural world and he probably prefers a serene country setting to an urban life style.
Basically, his needs are simple and he is easy to please. Damien Touya has a strong desire for security, stability and peace, and will rarely make changes unless he is forced to do so. He is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave a great deal of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness, emotional steadfastness and gentle strength, others often depend upon Touya for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, Damien Touya usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Damien Touya also has an innate sense of harmony with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time and the patience to nurture something into being - be it a garden, a child, or a creative project. He makes an excellent parent, especially if he follows his instincts more often than "the experts".
Damien has three major faults: one is his bullheaded obstinacy. The second is his unwillingness to deviate from his safe, predictable routine. And the third is Touya's tendency to always insist upon realism and undervalue the imaginative, speculative, and fanciful - in other words, Damien Touya lacks the ability to play with ideas and possibilities, and to open his mind to new horizons.
He is a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. Damien Touya prefers to work at home or in a very personal small business.
Touya invests a lot of his creative energy into his home, family relationships, and inner life.
Damien Touya tends to see things from his perspective only and to be rather subjective. He also enjoys talking and expressing his views but does not always listen as well. Damien Touya has a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and he needs constant mental stimulation and activity.
If he follows his true nature, his life is apt to be unconventional, unusual, controversial and full of insecurity and excitement. Damien Touya cannot and will not be forced into a pre-set mold, and Damien finds it difficult to conform. His offbeat interests and tastes lead Touya to ventures that others may consider too "far-out" or experimental. Damien Touya has a very creative, inventive streak.
Emotionally, it could be difficult for Damien Touya to discern illusion from reality. He is impressionable and sympathetic toward others. However, Touya tends to idealize others and could adopt a fantasy view of a wonderful marriage, causing disappointment later on.
