Absinthium (formerly known as Rui Forte) was a well-known citizen of Portugal, who resided for a while in Greece. For him Greece is like his original country, it's where he found the will to keep playing. He always fought for Portugal and Greece the best he knew and he could.
He was always against every PTO movement.
He first joined the PCP - Partido Comunista Portugues that later became PCeP - Partido Comunista ePortugues, a far-left party that shares the values of communism and socialism. At that time the party only had 40 members and it wasn't active despite the efforts made by 2 or 3 members to make it more active.
This was in the beginning of 2012 and his country was in risk of PTO by a group of Serbians supported by 3 or 4 Portuguese that approved theirs citizenship requests, and Bitorino, the President of Partido Portugal needed blockers for the congress elections to difficult Serbian's task and it was in that time that PCP and PP started its relation and in March, PCP almost elected his first congressman through Partido Portugal which gave one slot and by this PCP tried to elect one congressman and PP had one more blocker.
After that, Rui Forte changed to Movimento Minerva, a party founded by three old players of Portuguese community (Alister, Júlio de Matos and CatBea) where he didn't spend much time because the party was TOed by the players from the Military Unit SPA - Sucker Punch Army and it lost its values. He changed to Partido Portugal which was one Party where he got friends and converged in some of the ideas with him. He got elected two times for Congress and on 15th January of 2013, he was elected Party president in the last try to revive the Party which he failed to despite his efforts. He returned to PCeP after that month.
On March, he was chosen to be the portuguese MoFA by the elected CP and after a lot of negotiations he, and his MoFA team, reached an agreement with the Spanish government to end the war. On June he was MoFA again. On July he decided to candidate for Country President and he was elected with the support from PCeP, PRD and MR. In that month Portugal ended with the Iberian Treaty (the one that signed with Spain in March). Those months, from March until July, were very hard to external relations from Portugal since it was quite limited by the Iberian Treaty. By ending that treaty, Portugal was finally able to sign MPP's with many countries. As CP, one of his most important decisions apart from ending the Iberian Treaty was the use of the AS against Japan where Portugal landed with no difficulties and which helped the Portuguese community to unite under one flag for some time.
After this, he started being less active politically even though he was vCP in 2013 one more time, MoD on May and CP on August of 2014.
Despite being against Asteria*Leto, when LETO created LETO Mobile Army it needed a Governor to run its finances and he becomes the first LETO Governor, position that he kept for two months, in order to avoid money from being stolen and to organize its sheets.
The first Military Unit that Rui Forte joined was Sucker Punch Army - SPA where he met lots of players from the Portuguese community. When he left that MU, he joined Black Ops Internacional Unit - BO which had a very different way to do things if compared to SPA and it was there where he truly started to learn the game and it was in that time when he became interested in all the stuff around the daily life of Portuguese society. Soon he turned into the guy who tried to sell the damage of MU every day with his partner DurzaPT. By that time he was scammed for the first time and was his friend from BO, VilaVerde who helped him to balance the payments and other debts.
At day 1,739 and with the help of his friend mminii.22, he created the mercenary group SW3G - Div3 Mercenary Group which was a project that consisted in getting players from D3 together, no matter their MU, and sell damage. It was successful and it sold over 35 million damage (a lot for that time) in the first two weeks with profits higher than 85k current currency.
After some months in BO he wanted to try something new and joined G.A.P - Gang Armado Português where he made new friends such as Valongus and Mrs. Hazelnut. He was there for nearly two months until his friend Keil Moniz give up from the game and have given him his MU, -GODLIKE-, that Rui Forte changed to UNKNOWNS.
After UNKNOWNS, Rui Forte joined BO again for one month to help one of its teams winning an internal contest. After that, he changed his citizenship to Spanish and remained with it for 1 month. When he was in Spain, he joined FFAA and then BdC which he helped in the first military unit tournament to get to the first position in Spain. When he came back to Portugal he joined Legiao Urbana Portuguesa, LUP.
After abandoning LUP he joined F.A.Portuguesas where he was 2nd Commander for some time. Since the beginning, he helped the MU doing whatever it was needed. He remained in FA Portuguesas for several months, abandoning it and joining to fight against Asteria*Leto.
