After a tad bit of discussion on Discord, I edited both Regil's and Regina's backstories to fit the lore of the RP in accordance with what was discussed. If there's anything else that needs addressing, please let me know.
Power: A Speed: B Range: A Persistence: B Precision: B Potential: C
Noble Arm Type, Element, and Range: Melee/Ranged, Light Element
Noble Arm Abilities: Fury of the Sun: Rex Lucis spins in front of Samuel, increasing in speed rapidly as the older man grimaces from the effort. Light begins to shine from the weapon, increasing in amount quickly as it becomes blinding. At this point, Victor lets out a satisfied grunt and a beam of light as tall and wide as a semi truck bursts forth from the spinning weapon. Sweat beads down his forehead as he keeps the beam going at his old age, the attack burning, melting, and evaporating almost everything it touches.
Angel Rays: Like light that shines through a dark cloud, dozens of bolts of pure sunlight the size of a baseball bat burst forth towards Victor's foes as he raises Rex Lucis above his head and points with it. Dozens more come forth after the originals strike their targets down, leaving scorched and charred bodies behind. Like his other abilities, Angel Rays does best against non metal and stone objects, repeated strikes against most metals like steel will see the metal and stone sundered. Naked flesh, clothing, and anything living cannot be expected to put up ant resistance when struck.
Echos of Lucis: Victor takes Rex Lucis in both hands and light envelopes the blade, elongating it to double its size. Solid flesh is immediately cauterized, metals give some resistance but all give way with enough effort, leaving a melted line through whatever was cut.
Superhuman Strength and Durability: Light floods through his whole body, enhancing his strength and toughening his flesh and bones.
Shield of Light: Light erupts into being, seeming to emanate directly from Rexs body. While this ability is being used, Rex is impervious to almost all attacks (Though the most powerful of attacks can break through) and cannot use any other ability,
Lightspeed: Like the light he wields, Rex can be fast. Perhaps not as fast as light itself, Rex mind works at near triple that of a normal person when he uses this ability, all so he can properly utilize the speed of his ability. Like Shield of Light, Lightspeed cannot be used with any other ability, instead having to return to normal speeds of movement and thought to attack.
Bright Embrace (Passive): While Rex Lucis is visible, a constant light emanates from the spear. All those that the light touches and are friendly to the wielder of Rex Lucis find their morale boosted. They can’t help but look on the bright side of things, why would they do otherwise when Rex has come to their aid after all.
Guiding Light: A beam of gentle light erupts from the end of Rex Lucis and towards the targets of its wielder. Instead of hurting them in any way however, instead those it touches now see the world as if it was daytime as long as Rex Lucis is active. This ability is of course only useful during the night time however and those who have the ability granted to them have their eyes encased in light as if they were glowing.
Everything the Light Touches (passive): Rex is King of the Light, master of Rex Lucis and so everything the light touches, he knows of. While light from the sun, even that reflected off the moon, is touching a person who means to do harm in some fashion to the wielder of Rex Lucis, the wielder is aware and can sense them. Through years of testing the ability, Rex knows that the effective distance of this sense is about a 500 mile radius. This ability also has a secondary part to it. As light is made to drive out shadow, so was Rex Lucis. The darker a person's soul, the heavier their burdens, the more the light seeks them out, and the more Rex Lucis wishes to drive away that shadow that darkens them. The more a person has killed, the more they want to kill, the greater their hatred towards Rex Lucis, the more Rex Lucis wants to destroy that foe. On the other hand, the more guilt one feels at doing evil, at killing a person, harming another, or even losing one’s innocence, the more a person succumbs to that shadow within them, the greater help Rex Lucis can do. All of Rex Lucis abilities are increased when directed at these beings.
Misc Abilities: Fluent in english and spanish, good sailor, black belt in Judo.
Personality: A humble, kind, and wise older man with much that he wishes to teach those younger than him and much that haunts his past.
*Likes: The good and kind, those who are willing to fight for what is right, cheese
*Dislikes: Braggarts, those who mistreat others, pickles.
Fears: Losing his family, the loss of his home.
Bio: Victor was the first and remains the only member of his family to manifest a Noble Arm. When Victor manifested at the age of ten, the Korean war had just ended and the Vietnam war was beginning to take hold of the American public's attention. Victor was kept a secret from the American people, taken away from his family and made into a living weapon to win American conflicts.
It wasn’t until near the end of the Vietnam war that the public became aware of Victor, now codenamed as “Rex” by the military. This 17 year old weapon of mass destruction had burned much of Vietnam in strikes against communism, but with the war ending and with public support against the war, he was seen as a monster.
“The War Criminal Kid” is what he was called when American forces returned home. If the troops were treated like criminals, he was ten times worse. No one seemed to care that this was not his choice, that he had a choice at all.
Things got better for him over the years however as he used his powers more openly. He becomes one of America's ultimate weapons, if not its ultimate weapons. By 2000, with the millenia turning, the mere mention of his name by American diplomats brought a chill to the enemies of the USA. It was at the same time however, that he announced his retirement from the military. The cold war was over, he was not needed.
So Rex retired to a small house in Southern Georgia where he could live with his widowed sister, her children, and his dogs. Finally at peace, for now.
*Current Goal: See the Chinese thrown back, keep the younger members alive and try to shield them from the depravities of war.
@SirStriker, Lore and backstory approved. Our Vietnamese OCs might know your guy's reputation.
Fair warning, though; as long as your guy is retired, he'll be given a prototype 'Limiter Bracer' (which uses Occult Programming Language similarly to the Paragons' own efforts) which lowers the rank of his Noble Arm to B or even C when worn and activated.
Carroman is about 5’8” in height and 70 kilograms in weight.
Name: Carroman Fisch Montenegro
Nationality: Filipino-American (dual)
Noble Arm Name & Appearance:
Noble Arm Rank:
Power: B Speed: D-F (S) Range: C-B Persistence: C Precision: B Potential: D
Noble Arm Type, Element, and Range: Ranged/Support; Healing Light/Smiting Light; Short-Mid-Long Range
Noble Arm Abilities: Blessing of the Holy Light: After 5 seconds of charging, a beam of golden light emanates from the Dragon Staff up to ten feet away, healing whatever injuries it is shone upon. The light can quickly mend small bruises and cuts; open wounds can easily take from a few minutes to an hour depending on severity. It cannot restore missing limbs.
Divine Shield: After a charge time of 5 seconds, Carroman can create a magical shield about as wide and tall as a sedan, which is capable of tanking a single anti-tank projectile. It lasts about 15 seconds before dissipating by itself.
Light's Judgment: After gathering energy for about 3 seconds, the Dragon Staff fires a focused beam of searing golden and orange heat that easily melts through concrete, steel, and organic material. It is long ranged, precise, and can be reflected by mirrors, allowing it to bounce and strike unsuspecting targets behind cover. In C rank ranges, its power is sufficient to penetrate tank armor without any issue. Its range can be extended, but its offensive power quickly dwindles the farther it is drawn out; at B rank range, it can no longer penetrate solid objects, instead scalding them upon impact.
Verdict of Heaven: For five seconds, Carroman channels energy in the Dragon Staff. He is then able to summon a beam of holy light from the sky to burn targets on the ground within 100 meters and is in line of sight. It has far less raw power and precision, but has a wide area of effect of around ten feet, setting combustible materials alight.
Kneel Before The Light!: Considered to be a last ditch ability, Carroman has demonstrated the capability of sending down a powerful conflagration of divine light from above, shielding all allies and immolating everything else within a 750 meter radius around himself. It drains so much energy that he becomes powerless for a while. Requires a channel time of 20 seconds and must be defended from enemy attack.
Marksman: Being from the military, Carroman is a bit of a good shot, though he doesn't really like using it.
Fluency: He knows English and Tagalog in equal terms.
Personality: Carroman may initially come off as someone with a no nonsense attitude, perhaps because he carries this serious, implacable expression most of the time in camp. However, those who are at least acquainted with him know that while he may be a little grumpy during serious situations, especially to the younger folk, he is driven by a desire to see all of them live through the war. He is rather protective, and could be driven to a vengeful streak should he witness his allies being brutalized.
As for most things, though, Carroman takes them in stride. When in a relaxed situation, he doesn't seem to take anything too seriously; jokes and pranks may become a common occurrence.
His opinions on the Big Three are, unsurprisingly, often in the negative. Gunnar despises the Downward Spiral because of their chaotic nature; they are a great threat to the concept of order itself. The Paragons he sees as somewhat unrestrained and in need of regulation. The Virtues, in turn, are viewed by him with some skepticism, though they are potentially going to be the ones that lead humanity to greatness. *Likes: Cats, pizza, dad jokes, convoluted schemes, showing the enemy how wrong they are, and donating to charity.
*Dislikes: Overly spicy food, things going not as planned, dark places, and heights.
Fears: Failing his allies, somehow.
Bio: Carroman Montenegro, named after the combination of the names of his father and grandfather, was born in the city of Manila, to an American mother and Filipino father. His was a rather unnotable, if not well off life, as his family constantly flew to and fro the two countries. That is, until he manifested his Noble Arm after he suffered a car accident during university. There, drawing both on his now less than stellar mobility and his fascination with the tunnel of light that he saw when he was knocked out, he manifested a cane that granted what looked like to be holy energies for his use. That, and he liked dragons since he was a wee lad, so it had a dragonhead. Bizarrely enough, the healing powers he had gained couldn’t heal his leg, so he walks with a limp to this day.
Ever the creative one, he named his Noble Arm the Dragon Staff, though he currently maintains that he is open to new options.
Either way, he would be in the United States Army as a chaplain after that, going on two tours in the Middle East. It isn’t clear what he saw or did there other than the fact that he ministered to the spiritual needs of the soldiers that he was assigned to. The notable incident, however, was when he fought an extremist Noble Arms user, taking them down with a powerful conflagration of explosive light. There, he wielded his last and greatest spell, and went to bedrest for two days straight after that.
Now, he has come to the Philippines, the land of his father, to aid in the conflict against China. He was told that the Noble Arms division sorely lacked chaplains, and so he joined. He didn’t care that they were concerned about his… movement speed, saying that he was very much capable of taking care of himself.
*Current Goal: See China defeated, return to a peaceful existence, and maybe finally get a wife
Firstly I'm gonna draw a line at three whole un-hider-ed sheets, please stop making me scrollllll Doesn't matter what you call it, as long as it's easy for me to guess who the hider's for.
[sheet go here]
Power: C (3) +Speed: E (1) +Range: C-B (3-4) +Persistence: C (3) +Precision: B (4) +Potential: C (3) = 16-17 /6 = 2.66-2.833 Overall rank = D
Where the hider says "insert NA rank here," you put your overall rank decided by this calculation. If you feel like he warrants a higher or lower rank than the math says, you can make him a C or an E accordingly.
With that said, third:
Are these grades reflective of what you're trying to do? Power C is iffy for easily piercing tank armor. That might be a B. Given that, a divine shield that's stronger than tank armor is definitely a B.
Speed doesn't reflect the Master's movement speed, it reflects the responsiveness of the NA.
E-Rank: Comparative to walking underwater. Notable ramp-up/charge time. Abilities take a disadvantageously long time to fully "stick". Recommended against using them in the open or in sight of any hostile, at least initially.
I don't see any notes about charge-up or ramp-up in any of Carroman's abilities. If you are using Speed in the sense dictated above, specify the charge-up times/mechanisms/etc. If you misunderstood what Speed meant, reassess.
@The Man Emperor The third of four approvals granted. You have the required majority to join the character tab. Though, if you wouldn't mind waiting a bit on Sky to pitch in, that would be appreciated.
I have finished a profile I have been secretly working on, Ayahime R. Walter's Profile for this roleplay. May the seal be with you!
"You can count on me to find the truth, b-but please don't be too close to me."
Appearance: Ayahime has beautiful purple eyes and long black hair. She rarely ever smiles, and when Ayahime does smile, it feels like she's trying to hide something wrong. On her lower to upper back are multiple scars from when Ayahime awakened her Noble Arm at a very young age. The scars' message shows that her noble arm is anything but good.
Ayahime has body language that is significantly disturbed and cautious around others, so her affliction doesn't cause harm to them. There is a tiny tidbit of hope in her body language, which hopes the future will be brighter than what had happened. When her Noble Arm is about to manifest, Ayahime's hairs stand on end, and she looks like she's shivering down her spine.
Ayahime wears silverish-white Christian cross earrings, a gift from her mother. She wears other earrings, but they are based on her favorite insect, a butterfly.
Height: 5’4" Weight: 120 lbs Build: Hourglass /w Athleticism (Journalists are always on the move)
The Character Portion Section
Name: Ayahime Rain Walters Age: 21 Birthdate: May 21st, 2001 AD Nationality: Japanese-American
Photographer - Ayahime uses an expensive camera to take high-quality shots. She gets paid a reasonable amount for the high-quality photos she takes.
Drinking - Ayahime usually, on her off-time, drinks liquor of specific certain quantities to make her feel better. She feels numb and has trouble sleeping without alcohol.
Bilingual - Ayahime fluently speaks two languages, and they are both from her parents, which are English and Japanese. She has an accent when speaking English, which sounds like she was born in the Southern United States, but it is copied from her biological father.
Self-Taught Defense School - Ayahime self-taught herself to defend herself in multiple situations, but it is only for defensive purposes rather than offensive. Defensive Hand-to-Hand combat school, but she does know how to properly wield a handgun without having it go off accidentally. Ayahime wants to use these techniques, overexerting her terrible noble arm.
Cautious around Others - Ayahime is cautious around others who want to try to get to know her better or wish to date her. She uses tired old lines in relationships to end them. One of the reasons, Ayahime is still single. She doesn't want any more people scared or worse because Ayahime doesn't believe in harming others trying to be nice to her, but that monstrous noble arm isn't playing nice.
Cooking - Ayahime knows how to cook, which is an understatement since she had to learn this skill at a young age before she left for her favorite career choice. Her meals are perfectly balanced and taste great compared to other people who are not good at it. Ayahime's choice to stay single has kept her from cooking meals that will help her.
Personality: Ayahime always tries not to be the center of attention, which has yet to work so far in her life. She is kind to everyone and never raises her voice but gets irritated and tries to tell people to stop invading her personal space. Sometimes depending on her mood, Ayahime would depart early from a bar to go home to drink her sorrows away instead. Ayahime considers others as she was taught to be considerate of others. Her grief is how far she has to live away from her parents personally and that everyone she could get together with has a possibility of dying.
Her noble arm causes Ayahime intense panic attacks when those who invade her personal space trigger the Noble Arm to manifest itself. Ayahime is deathly afraid of her Noble Arm because it is sentient and actively taunts those who invade her personal space and herself. She actively calls her noble arm, a demon sent by the devil to torment her for not being whole of her faith. Ayahime has become more religious in this trying torment by Xorzin's Wrath.
Ayahime is hurt by how nervous she gets talking to Tomiko and Thomas over the phone. She is too scared to ask how they are doing, only saying hello, etc. Her father usually yells at her over the phone, but her mother is calm and friendly. She knows Tomiko had forgiven her already for the perceived notion of her noble arm almost killing her parents before she stopped it. In the tone of her father's voice every time they talk over the phone, Thomas still hasn't forgiven her and is still afraid of Xorzin's Wrath. He doesn't like that Ayahime went against his family's tradition to pursue a career of finding the truth or taking beautiful photos.
*Likes: Music, Flowers, Taking Photos, Blue, Fiction, Cherries, Onions, getting at the truth, Butterflies, and Handguns (Heckler & Koch VP9 9MM Pistol and SIG Sauer P320 Pistol).
*Dislikes: Creeps, Dishonesty, Lying, Killing, Invading her personal space, and changing the truth into lies.
Fears: Ayahime has intense fears of commitment and losing loved ones. She gets out of every relationship for fear of wielding the noble arm, which causes her parents to fear it but causes her to grow up quicker. Ayahime also fears the Big Three Noble Arm Organizations and anyone that even looks her way as a tool to be used against others. Because of this, she distrusts the Big Three and their intentions.
Ayahime fears her Noble Arm, the Xorzin's Wrath, because of how dangerous it is compared to others who awaken there. She fears it because it tried to kill her biological parents. Ayahime doesn't understand the change but fears it the same. Another one of her fears is stalkers too, which have a sadistic streak of causing her to move frequently. They are overly creepy and unbelievably deadset on fixing her like she is something that needs fixing. Overcoming these fears won't be helped by people who want to be a control freak and don't want her to travel the world as a Freelance Reporter.
Bio: Ayahime was born on May 21, 2001, at the Norman Regional Hospital in Norman, Oklahoma, to Tomiko J. Walters and Thomas S. Walters. The two were extremely happy to have Ayahime R. Walters born into the world. Thomas had a set future planned for his daughter called the Thomas Plan, which is based on his family's tradition of always having their children join the military. Tomiko was annoyed that Thomas planned that out and even named it after himself, somewhat selfish of a man that her husband was. Her parents had conflicting goals for Ayahime, but that never stopped them from being there for her.
Ayahime had two different upbringings one that was harsh and heavy-handed in her choice of a future career, and the other that was kind and gentle. Tomiko would be the one that would give Ayahime a gentle upbringing. At an early age, Ayahime could tell her parents had some tension between them but didn't know why. Thomas didn't let much room for Ayahime to be a child and was overly strict when he would bring up military branches with his daughter. Ayahime would frequently get scared at why her father was trying to force her to join the military so severely. She started to distrust her father's intentions in why he was asking her so much to give up what she wanted only to follow the family tradition. It strained their relationship so severely that Ayahime stopped attending church on Sundays. Her father pressured her so much that it got harder to tell Thomas why she hadn't answered his frequent questions.
The Walters family had their lives changed forever on Ayahime's twelfth birthday. Ayahime finally decided to tell her father about her future goals, angered him to an extreme degree. She wanted to become a Freelancer Reporter and a Photographer, which meant a Journalism Degree and a Photography Degree. Thomas was angry, but Tomiko entered the room before Thomas could do anything to Ayahime. A scenario happened when Thomas was stunned at what was happening, a Noble Arms Manifestation. Ayahime awakened her noble arm. However, it caused Ayahime to panic, and the room was filled with dread, death, or waiting to kill someone. She manifested Xorzin's Wrath in her hands, but it was plain evil. Something was wrong, so dreadfully wrong. The weapon started to speak in a demonic voice that laughed at Thomas and Tomiko for invading Ayahime's personal space.
Ayahime was forced against her will to charge her parents to cut them down, but she managed to stop the act of murdering her parents by this evil, cruel demonic noble arm. Thomas freaked out that he had his head cut clean off by Ayahime's Noble Arm. When the noble arm started to unmanifest, it taunted Ayahime with a snide remark and a hint of sympathy in its tone. Ayahime was crying and shaking because of it.
After the awakening of Xorzin's Wrath, it introduced itself to Tomiko, Thomas, and Ayahime. Thomas became afraid of Ayahime because he believed his daughter would kill him. Tomiko was worried, too, but for different reasons, and that weapon awakened at the correct time to stop Thomas from hurting Ayahime. Though they both feared the weapon, Tomiko tried to support her daughter in any way possible besides the threat of the Noble Arm.
Three Weeks later, Ayahime was told to have a family meeting with her mother and father. The family meeting room was in the kitchen, but Tomiko was the only one sitting at the kitchen table. Thomas was standing further into the kitchen by the kitchen counter. Ayahime asked if the family meeting could start, which it did as Tomiko voiced her concerns that Thomas was making a grave mistake. Tomiko was scared of Ayahime's Noble Arm but more scared of actively losing Ayahime.
Thomas ignored what his wife had to say and told her not to register Ayahime's Noble Arm to the US Government. He wanted his daughter to stay unregistered for as long as possible. More like Thomas doesn't want her to be registered at all. He told Ayahime to stop seeing her childhood friends, Ashley and Marcus. And become distant from anyone that would trigger her weapon at all. Thomas even ordered that she would never manifest it herself. Tomiko was listening to her husband rant and rave at their daughter about all the cautious behavior Ayahime has to do to keep everyone alive, which hurts.
Ayahime agreed with that since Thomas knew that Ayahime was attracted to both of her childhood friends. She felt it was for the best since Ashley and Marcus were moving on with their lives together. Ayahime can tell about their feelings for one another. She feels like she's the third wheel in their relationship, but the feelings of her attraction to both genders probably won't stop. Ayahime could tell that Thomas had more to say as he waited for her to stop speaking about her feelings towards Ashley and Marcus, as they made her happy.
Thomas then went to the issue and why he called for this meeting. He told Ayahime that she must pack everything from her room and move out of the house. This instance, at the age of 12, was a bit shocking. Thomas asked if she would agree, but this was when Tomiko butted into the conversation and yelled at her husband. Tomiko and Thomas got into a heated argument because of this outrage, an ultimatum to Ayahime at her age.
Ayahime couldn't believe her father had asked her to move out of the house and move to an apartment at twelve. She was stunned at her parents' first-ever argument, a yelling slug match. It caused her to start crying and lie on the kitchen table since Ayahime felt responsible for her parents' fight. Ayahime couldn't stop crying until her father and mother calmed down and finally reached a compromise.
Thomas asked his daughter to raise her head and stop crying. He watched Ayahime carefully and then finally spoke about when she would leave. Thomas said Ayahime is 16 years old and will go to the nearest apartment complex. Her mother would drive her to the apartment complex, which is still in her school's district, so she could still attend the same school. Ayahime looked at her mother, who had a worried look on her face, but before Ayahime agreed to the terms. She asked her father if he would always kick her out of the house if Ayahime went against the Thomas Plan. Ayahime learned the truth at that moment, her father spoke a few words, Yes, but you would be leaving at 18 instead of 16. She gasped but agreed to his compromise since it wasn't much of one since it was preplanned.
Ayahime's driving force to become a Photographer and a Freelancer Reporter was because her father was deceitful and not telling the truth. She got Thomas' truth, and it was disgusting how much he planned for her to join the US Army. After the compromise, Thomas accepted the terms too and left for the bar in his truck. However, the responsibility to raise their daughter rests entirely on Tomiko's shoulders. Thomas won't as much look at Ayahime or Tomiko as long as his daughter is still at home.
When Ayahime turned 14, Tomiko gifted her a beautiful present, two matching whitish-silver Christian cross earrings. Ayahime wore them wholeheartedly since it was a lovely gift, and on this day, her mother forgave her for what had happened two years ago. Tomiko could move on, while Thomas could not.
After everything, when Ayahime turned 16, her mother drove her to her apartment complex, where she started living for what Thomas had done. Ayahime couldn't hug her mother since the Unregistered Noble Arms manifested four years ago. So far, no incidents involving Xorzin's Wrath have happened. She was careful and turned into a background character to disappear from the limelight. It was like everything her father said helped out in the end. Everyone at her school was afraid of Ayahime, which is why they left her alone, but her grades were top-notch. Ayahime picked classes that fit her drive to become a Journalist and Photographer.
Ayahime graduated High School with honors to pursue a Photographer and become a Freelance Reporter. She could attend any college with those two professions as applicable degrees. One major problem, Ayahime's social life was nonexistent. Ayahime didn't mind not having a social life since it was better than having people get injured or killed by that Noble Arm of hers.
Ayahime is now 21 years old and preparing to go to the Philippines as a Freelance Reporter, War Correspondent. She had been able to live somewhat peacefully besides all the creeps and stalkers bugging her. All because she wants to show everyone the truth. Ayahime has to keep an eye out for anyone that wants to bug her heavily and tell them not to invade her personal space.
Ayahime holds no more resentment towards her father, Thomas S. Walters. She learned to let go and move on with her life, since now she lives in Eugene, Oregon. She hit adulthood in an apartment since she had to travel across the country as a Journalist for three years. Ayahime told her mother about her traveling to the Philippines as a Freelance Reporter, War Correspondent. Her mother was deathly afraid of her doing that but respected her decision to follow her dreams.
Ayahime is an Unregistered Noble Arms Master, but she wants not to be a combatant during the conflict. She doesn't know how bad going to the Philippines is as an unregistered noble arms master or a Civilian allied to the Philippines by being part of the United States. Ayahime time spent moving everywhere in the United States was 255 times.
Current Goal: Ayahime is a War Correspondent for the Chinese-ASEAN War for the ASEAN Allies Side, specifically from the United States. She wants to stay not the center of attention while being a Freelance Reporter, War Correspondent in the warzone in the Philippines.
The Overall Goal: Deep down in Ayahime's soul, she wants help to understand a specific trouble spot in her life that has caused her to live with so much sorrow, and that's Xorzin's Wrath.
The Future Goal: Repair her relationship with her biological father, Thomas Sal Walters.
Military or Civilian Rank: Freelance Reporter, War Correspondent | Unregistered Noble Arms Master
The Walter Family is an extended historic family that has always served in one of the many military branches of the United States. Their service shows they have even fought in World War 1, World War 2, and other modern wars. Usually, each family member chooses between the United States Air Force, United States Army, United States Navy, or the United States Marines. Ayahime wasn't exempt from joining the military because of how hard her father pushed her to join it. She chose not to enter it but to most of her father's dismay while her mother wanted her to do something against their family tradition.
Ayahime decidedly wanted to be a Photographer and later a Freelancer Reporter to document things hidden in the shadows to bring them to light. She hunts for the truth to give it to the people who deserve it. Therefore, when the Chinese started to aim for the Philippines by declaring war on it. Ayahime decided to become a Freelancer Reporter, War Correspondent to report on the war. In addition, Ayahime wants to ensure the safety of others from her Noble Arm. Ayahime's mother, Tomiko, accepted her as the Freelance Reporter, even if she was scared of losing her daughter if anything terrible happened to her by going to the Philippines.
Thomas S. Walters hasn't forgiven his daughter for choosing her path, as much as he says when he talks to her over the phone. He is still afraid of her noble arm because of what it tried with him and Tomiko.
Heckler & Koch VP9 9MM Pistol and SIG Sauer P320 Pistol are her two handguns, which she carries on her. Ayahime uses these for self-defense, not to kill anyone but to disable an assailant. She holds at least four magazines for each pistol, and a fifth is in the two handguns.
Sony A7 IV, Camera for Photography
Ayahime bought this one since her previous camera broke on her when a creep destroyed it. It costs 2,698 dollars, and she'll take better care of it than her last one. She got the Body /w 28-70mm option. In addition, she has enough film to keep using it for a while. Sony- HDRCX405 HD Video Camcorder
Ayahime bought the top-of-the-line video camcorder so she could be entirely a solo, Freelance Reporter. Two hundred twenty-eight dollars compared to her Photography Camera, which this one is for interviewing people and getting their reactions on the live feed, while her camera is for still shots.
The Noble Arm Section
Noble Arm Name & Appearance: Xorzin’s Wrath
There is a voice coming from Ayahime's Noble Arm, the Xorzin's Wrath. It is distorted and is more feminine and female in tone. Xorzin's Wrath frequently taunts Ayahime to be more like her. Noble Arm Rank:
Ayahime/Xorzin (Base State) "()" = Dark Doppelganger Active Power: B Speed: C Range: C Persistence: D (C) Precision: C (B) Potential: C
Xorzia Power: B Speed: B Range: C Persistence: D Precision: B Potential: C
Noble Arm Type, Element, and Range: Melee | Dual-Element (Dark and Fire) | Close to Mid-Ranged
Noble Arm Abilities: Xorzin's Manifestation
Xorzin's Wrath is a Noble Arm that is both sentient and actively malicious. Identifying itself as "female," Xorzin holds enmity for all but its wielder, seeking to harm or kill anything and anyone that so much as slightly inconveniences Ayahime. Xorzin seeks to corrupt its wielder, to taunt and torment her until it can drag her down to its level, shaping her into its sister in self-serving, gleeful malice.
Xorzin is capable of using its powers entirely without its wielder's input and must be actively suppressed from doing so. Moreover, when Ayahime is emotionally compromised, Xorzin is able to manifest of its own will and take physical control of Ayahime's body to use as a puppet. Under normal circumstances, Xorzin's length is mostly white, but when acting of its own accord, the white bleeds into pitch black. During a self-summon, a dense, reddish-black fog rises around Ayahime's personal space (around a 1-2 meter radius). Causing Ayahime's hair to stand on end, the fog inflicts harsh, lingering rashes akin to Dermatitis on physical contact while it exists -on both Ayahime and others- and dissipates fully once the self-summon is complete. For as long as Xorzin remains manifested, it constantly emanates a seemingly indiscriminate aura of murderous wrath and gleeful malice.
Xorzin's Flaming Hell Slash
A burst of scorching-hot flames can be emitted from the blade, clocking in at temperatures of 707°F (375°C). The attack generally manifests as a rough wave of flame and heat, and Ayahime has some limited capacity to warp the orientation of that wave to avoid completely indiscriminate destruction, even in the case that it is Xorzin, itself, forcing the usage of this ability. The direct manifestation of flames cuts out at a maximum range of 75 yards from Ayahime's position. This ability tends to be highly straining on a mental and physical level, which usually leaves Ayahime stuck completely stationary for the duration of unleashing it.
Xorzin's Dark Doppelganger
Xorzin's trump card, when needs must, the Noble Arm can possess and separate Ayahime's shadow, forming it into an inverted "alter" version of its wielder named "Xorzia", a perfect physical clone aside from black eyes, purple hair, red clothes and blackish-red pentagrams for earrings. Xorzin's alter body possesses all of the powers the Noble Arm normally has, completely independent of Ayahime, even a copy of the weapon's blackened form. However, the copies of their powers are "flavored" accordingly. For example, the fog created by Foreboding Shroud. Ayahime is stuck with the relatively harmless version, while Xorzia is constantly being worn down by her harm-inducing version, leaving the latter more ferocity but less staying power in the long run.
In the meantime, for the duration of this ability, Ayahime is left free of Xorzin's direct influence while also lacking a shadow. While they still share a telepathic communication, Xorzia cannot influence Ayahime's control of her own copy of Xorzin's powers or vice-versa. As a result, both Ayahime and Xorzia gain a rank-up to Precision B for the purposes of unleashing and controlling their flames, due to not having to struggle against each-others' desires. Ayahime's Persistence ranks up to C due to no longer having to divert effort to restraining Xorxin, while Xorzia's Speed ranks up to B due to no longer being hampered by Ayahime's hesitance and good will.
Able to move up to 200 meters/658 feet away from her "benefactor" at any given time, the doppelganger remains manifested for as long as Xorzia can manage to hold out in the face of her own constant self-inflicted and accumulated outside damage and exhaustion. With the same physical "stats", she can be killed as easily as Ayahime. The ability also ends if Xorzia loses grip on her blackened copy of the Noble Arm or Ayahime is killed/utterly exhausted.
Xorzin's Foreboding Shroud (Passive)
Shortly after Xorzin finishes manifesting, whether by Ayahime's or its own will, it will begin emitting a reddish-black fog of darkness in a 6-10-foot radius of her position that will persist so long as the Noble Arm remains summoned. The fog's varying range is a result of Ayahime's movement, growing shorter in front of her the faster she runs in a given direction and spreading out to its fuller range if she takes a moment to move relatively little. As such, the outward assumption that she is always at the center is false, especially in a heated combat.
The fog greatly hinders sight. Aside from Ayahime, those inside are unable to visually perceive further than 3 feet in front of them. While within the fog, Ayahime's footsteps -but not other sounds- are completely silenced.
Normally, other than sensory inhibition, the fog is harmless. However, if Xorzin is presently in control, the fog gains the same rash-inducing quality as the self-summon fog, harming and rapidly draining Ayahime. Ayahime is dangerously ignorant of her mounting fog-induced damage/exhaustion until Xorzin dissipates.
