Physical Description: A giant of the man, originating from the northern wastes, Karaulish is a born and raised warrior. Hairs as white as the snow of his homelands, he has grown a bit old with time. He has a pair of ridiculously big pauldrons on his shoulders, contrasting the naked chest and stomach he proudly displays for all to see, which, although rippling with muscle, are just begging to be cut open. His arms and feet are well protected by thick, black steel plates. He has a pair of swords, each one 4’ in length, strapped to his sides, and a long spear on his back.
Personality: Outside of battle, he is calm and collected. Most often he tries to avoid confrontation as he has seen far too much death. During battle, he becomes filled with rage, his attacks become somewhat reckless and he enters a high, making him ignorant of pain and able to withstand a direct hit. Although furious, he does not become far too aggressive, at least not in the start of the battle.
Skills: Can perform a special movement, with the pair of swords, which allows him to indefinitely chain his attacks while moving and retaining an opportunity to evade some attacks. He also roars and shouts in attempts to intimidate his adversary.
Abilities: Can lift up to three times his weight, allowing him to essentially win almost every locking of blades. Is surprisingly agile, thanks to his extended training of the indefinite chain of attacks he can perform.
Equipment: Two 4’ long swords of dark steel, with runes carved into them. They can cut and stab at incredible efficiency. They have no wristguard. A spear, 6’ long, made out of thick wood, reinforced by steel plates, with the point being steel, and about 1’ in length.
Did not build a character for Knightly setting. So ill be fighting with only my sword in its negate mode. I built it for TZ, which uses supernatural abilities like idk fire manipulation, wasn't expecting this. I removed the majority of my equipment listing.
Notes: Inhumane Vessel: Negated for now, can die from being stabbed and shit, considering the situation, I don't want you making a whole new character cause I'm too lazy to make another one for this tier.
Millennia Mind: Hiken-Tsubame Gaeshi is busted against your character so I wont be using
Tojiko Tamashi: Kofuga
Race: Spirit Age: 14 millenniums
Appearance: General/Clothing : Tojiko himself is no more than a spirit with no physical form, although his vessel is near that of perfection. A temple worthy of his possession, standing 5ft’9in and weighing 150lbs. A sharp eared youth with fangs to match. Skin in need of color, having no depth yet deprived of wrinkles and ruggedness. Smooth yet hard like steel, a foundation of a solid body comparable to titans of old. Long abyssal like hair, wild and spiky in nature. To the touch it was reminiscent of the quills of a porcupine. Eyes that illuminated that darkness in a azure hue. His brow low and unsympathetic, unable to share emotion. A lacking of human like aura, more so a deity confined to a prison. Dressed in a historical black garb, deemed as a Shinobi Shozoku. His feet wrapped in cloth both than dressed in Shinobi Tabi. His clothing allowed for fluid movement, hindering his speed, although not that it even could. Unusual aesthetics, the azura horns with perturbed from his helm along with the joined parts of his body having black painted incantations wrapped around them.
Abilities: Inhumane Vessel: Tojiko Tamashi name translates to Trapped Spirit, understanding this one could easily understand the thing that they are fighting is no more than a doll created through unconventional mean to be strong enough to bear a margin of the power that Tojiko once held. Kofuga was the name bestowed upon this vessel, bathed in Aether, now resembling that of transcendence. Having feats beyond that of humanity, unbound by the physical restriction of humanity he may casually replicate lightning like speeds and lift 10s of tons. Having enhanced durability, the average sword would break on his surface and Observation spanning across dimensional planes of existence and spiritual alignment. A 360 aware, due to his ability to sense life and or spirit/souls. It’s only natural he could sense these things, he is a warrior spirit. Geared to hold 3 (not counting the Black Swords) Of the 27 True Runes and able to separate it’s joints, tethering them with spiritual energy. His vessel undying, immortal to natural death. Meaning killing, well destroying his vessel is possible. It may be sealed, destroy both horns allowing for Tojiko to be bound to this vessel, destroy it entirely or remove his spirit from idol. These ways are possible because the vessel lacks organs and other human functions. Meaning it can’t feel, nor experience pain, although having a sense of touch. It does not need air nor other human things for survival. It could literally live in the void of space but would eventually freeze and crack. It can still be burned or vaporized. The vessel is resistance to magic that plays in the mind, one would need abilities that court the spirit to trick him, or illusions that sit upon the layer of reality ( Illusions that take place in the real world, still allowing for him to move and react to both real and augmented reality).
Millennia Mind: Using his vessel, Tojiko has walked amongst the living world for eons. In truth he has nearly forgot how many years have passed him. Although with each civilization that rises and crumbles out of a need of communication he adventures out to learn humanity's ways. Taking part in there festivities and teachings, from training with monks to temper the mind, body and spirit. All the way to training with warriors, becoming well versed in the combats arts. He himself was already a warrior spirit, but learning to use the fighting styles of the world around him allowed for him to blend it into his own abilities, additional learning their mystic arts:
Hiken: A effective way of the sword taught to him by the famous Sasaki Kojiro. The style revolves around holding a single, parrying and countering the enemies efforts. The style may transition into gentle movements for evasive actions, orienting around placing once at the back of the foe with ease. Hiken is gifted with a ability famous across Sasaki land, for he was a man who sword was said to cut down a swallow mid flight and perhaps a god. Hiken-Tsubame Gaeshi, This demonic sword technique, the utmost and sole technique used by Sasaki. it has reached a level comparable to one out of pure godlike skill that surpasses mankind. It is a technique where three concurrent arching blades close on the enemy from all sides to create a prison, allowing small chance for defense or evasion. Downplays as simply successive slashes done "within a single breath, it is actually bending the laws of physics to multiply its existence. It starts with a flash from the sword, projecting a sensation of danger unto the target, followed by two absolutely simultaneous, over-lapping flashes that disregard the concept of time and space, producing a slash attack that arrives from three different directions by momentarily using the Multi-Dimensional Refraction.
Focus: A skill taught to him by Mori Motonari, a famous tactician and archer. Focus allows for one to clear the mind posing all attention on a single target, a connection seemingly supernatural. The will be aware of this being and the possessions they hold (weapon). The surrounds become black and the target and affiliated accessories are dawn onto the inside of his eyelids. Sacrificing terrain awareness in order to not lose his target.
Equipment: Runes: The 27 True Runes are powerful sources of magic and primal forces. Wholly sentient and possessing their own will, the True Runes hold immeasurable power, and are the equivalents of gods the world. Many wars have been fought over them in the past, some instigated by the will of the runes themselves. True Runes are often sought by the powerful and influential due to their shared property of granting immortality to those who will bear them. All bearers of True Runes stop aging and become immune to disease and all other natural causes of death, though they can still die from physical trauma such as accidents or murder.
The True Runes often attach themselves to living beings, but can be attached to the dead or spirits. Doing so gives the True Rune holder great power over the force the rune represents as well as immortality so long as they wield the rune. Wielding the runes can also have negative consequences, as in the case of one wielder being transformed into a vampire. A True Rune has also taken the shape of a sword. They can also manifest themselves unattached from a host, self-activating and then feeding of its own will.
The Black Swords Rune: One of the components of the Rune of the Beginning. Representing the offensive power necessary for "the beginning," this rune holds devastating powers. Much of the power is manifested in the form of swords, and all of its spells unleash painful attacks with magical swords. In its base forum it appears as a black blade katana, able to release devastating gales of kinetic energy. These swords can not coexist, meaning only one can be created at a time and if one is present the other will vanish these swords vary in ability and none can be broken:
- Negate Black Sword: A sword that cuts magic barriers or magical attacks. This sword has no range capabilities and appears as a common sword, yet is unbreakable and has incredible sharpness. Easily can cut steel, but it’s main purpose should be cutting magic.
That's a really weird way to describe what you're doing. First off, it seems as if you are preparing for the attack which was feinted, meaning a jab with the spear head, bu then you seamlessly parry the swing coming from the side BEFORE Karaulish even lets go of the spear with one of his hands. That's a little extreme, speed-wise, prediction-wise and also it seems you got it wrong. Karaulish let go of the spear with his left hand as he had issued the swing, meaning it was nowhere near connecting when he lowered his left arm. Also, I am still confused as to how he could see through the feint so easily. I'd like to imagine feints in roleplay lead to situations where a character either barely saves themselves from the actual attack, following the feint, or if the author of that character decides, get hit by the feint. I get that your character is really old and battle hardened to the point where he breathes fighting, but still.
You over thinking guy. I’ll admit your post gave me quite the issue do to lack of detail. It was really hard for me to understand what was really happening because you used vague descriptions; “a little higher than before” and other shit, but I just pressed on. Your Feint is not easily “predicted” I didn’t even predict it, I acknowledge it in the narrative, but the character would complete his step after your feint, all while performing the parry. How?
```With a surprisingly quick maneuver, the old warrior feinted an upwards attack with the spear``` undisclosed attack that goes up but it doesn't. That's an action. I can act here, but even so it’s never stated where the head of ya spear is. The origin of your feint is not stated
``` in the process raising the weapon a little higher than it had been before``` This has to happen after the feint. That means the feint is an whole other action in itself which allows the spear to be suspended before being elevated. I complete my step at this moment, placing me passed the head, the metal bar would hit me instead. Since I completed my step after your feint, I can literally just see where ya spear is and move my blade there all while simultaneously moving forward.
Btw, boxers and other martial artist peek through feints all the time, I just step forward with you at a slower rate, my blade is already in a defensive position from my last post so I didn’t have to do much. Ya hand thing, see it wasn’t stated clearly when ya hand would be removed from it.
“”By performing this attack, however, he let go of the spear with his left hand, which went to the side of his body.””
It’s odd enough you put this detail at the end of the post and not at the beginning of the attack. I imagine you post details in sequential order, I see it says by performing this attack. So I wanted to assume it was at the beginning of the attack, but shit it could have been at the end of the attack. I wasn’t gonna argue in ya next post if you said your hand had already been removed. Although I can’t say my post is hard to read considering it has every detail in it. Shit I may have actually missed something though lol. Yet to clarify;
1. Tojiko sees you step, when you step you feint (he does not know this is a feint, I never say he knows this) 2. Witnesseing your incoming attack he starts to step forward and begans to parry. I have no idea the origin of your attack. You say an upward attack but how low is the blade originally, so I have to take things into my own imagination. Even if it’s a feint, the spear is still there I can interact with it before your actual attack. Thus what I did, stepping passed the feint, moving my blade to put ya spear on my left side. This pretty much stops ya actually attack because of a we’ll designed feint. Just because it’s is a feint does not mean I can’t do anything, it put me in no danger, even in my last post I said one chance was all he needed get close and get passed the spear head. 3. Here is when you would do your attack but since I stopped that, do you still remove your hand? Cause it would never go into motion? That’s why I wish you would have said when. 4. After parrying the rest should be easy, bringing the spear up and over my head as I rush in. placing it on my right side, pinned because my body south be on the left side of the shaft and my sword the right. Than I get to you and aim for both your arms cause I wasn’t sure when you let go of the spear, but what I do know is ya other hand gonna have to let go, or you finna lose it.
