Ryuuga stood on the deck of the ship, leaning excitedly against a railing as he saw his hometown appear in the distance. He had woken tied up and gagged in the ship storage along with a note saying "Don't come home till you win the tournament" after falling asleep the day before on his 16th birthday, very likely due to some weird test concocted by his dear old mom. The young trainer wasn't deterred at all and felt excited at being on such a nice ship and that his mother finally gave him the independence to travel the islands.
He took in a deep breath of air, tasting the fresh salty winds before shouting at the top of his lungs at the island "I'M GOING TO WIN!". Calling out a challenge to the entirety of the islands, a challenge he would commit his soul to win.
Ryuuga left the logistics on how he was supposed to travel the islands, how he was going to make money or even where this ferry was going to later. For now, he just felt on top of the world.

Name: Zhan Muyung (Chinese/Koren name scheme so first name is Muyung family name is Zhan) Age: 16 Appearance:
To Become The Absolute. Somebody so powerful they become a certainty in the universe.
Background: Muyung's uncle Zhan Zi was originally the heir to the broken sword martial arts sect, deep in the mountains of Tibet however Muyung's father, Zhan Yuan, displayed great talent towards the martial arts. Even though Yuan tried his best to support his brother, Zi always felt that he was living in his younger brother's shadow as they grew up. When the rumors spread that Yuan had fallen in love with a woman from a rival sect, Zi took advantage of the situation to have his brother banished. Yuan gladly gave up his position in their clan then immediately decided to elope with his lover to the US.
Muyung always grew up listening to his parent's love story but the more he listened to it, the more he became focused on the aspect of martial arts. His father trained him in the Ten Thousand Tibetan Sword style, honing his body to become a weapon per his request. The two bonded greatly using martial arts however the skills he learned from his father never felt enough. Yuan would enter tournament after tournament in an effort to prove his strength, gaining a long streak of wins in junior tournaments. He pushed himself to become even stronger while becoming drunk on stories of martial arts master who became immortal beings after years of cultivation, being able to bring down the heavens themselves if they so choose.
Yuan wanted to become like one of them but stories of immortals were only stories and even though he still hadn't reached his physical limit he knew that humans could only stay human. No amount of cultivation through meditation nor martial arts could turn him into an immortal, but regardless of that he trained and trained until the day he was chosen to become a magical warrior and fulfill his dream. Monster Fighting Abilities:
5*Physical Ability: Muyung's greatest power, an ability to enhance all his physical abilities by five times. Already having an obscene amount of strength, speed, and endurance even before he became a magical warrior, his magical powers have made him into a true monster. When powered up, Zhan's fists can turn concrete into dust and shatter steel beams while his body is able to withstand tank rounds with barely any damage what so ever. This power has the downside of not actually providing anything that could specifically harm a monster but by god can he keep up with even the most physically overpowering demons. He might not be able to kill a monster permanently with his strength but damned if he won't try.
The Ten Thousand Tibetan Sword Technique: A martial art passed down from the Zhan family for generations and used personally by Muyung's father, The Ten Thousand Tibetan Sword Technique is a series of sword moves that were designed for everything from killing, cutting and even dancing. Few very in history were able to master all ten thousand moves, even those interested in learning must start at a young age to be able to master even a fraction of the moves. Contrary to its name, The Ten Thousand Tibetan Sword Technique has many techniques that rely purely on the user's body. Even techniques that normally require a sword can be used in a weaker state once mastered, as the practitioner's body becomes a weapon in itself. At the moment, Zhan has to use the weakened techniques as no mundane weapon could properly handle his strength with magical enchantments.
Username: Dumb1And1Lazy Name: Ryuuga Hearthstone Age: 16 Native or visitor: Native Appearance: Pokémon (max 3):
Personality: Completely generic main character personality. Hot blooded when it comes to battling but incredibly friendly and nice outside of it. Sometimes completely forgives villains when they ask for it but other times completely merciless. Painfully normal except when the plot calls for a different personality for that plot arc. Background: Ryuuga's mother was a professional pokemon trainer from Alola who traveled around the world in a journey of self-discovery and friendship like all trainers do. She met Ryuuga's father, a pokemon breeder, when she challenged the Rorie contest and he was on standby taking care of the pokemon with nurse joys. After taking third place, she settled down with him. She gave birth to Ryuuga and trained him in the art of pokemon battling so that one day he could explore the world like she did before she settled down. On his 16th birthday Ryuuga set off to challenge the world like his mother before him, armed with his hypercompetitive mother's training and an Alolan breed sandshrew that his mother's original sandslash gave birth too. Other: I pretty much just gave my MC's mom's backstory but I kind of don't want him to be anything special. Just another one of the hundreds of trainers that come and go every day. I feel like I want to figure out his personality IC instead of putting down a set personality and writing something completely different IC.
@IceHeart Sorry was busy with the family during Easter, I'll finish the backstory today probably. Got powers and a picture already, just trying to figure out how to shoehorn in a martial artist/wuxia character.
Alright, made a backstory. Need confirmation on the powers and backstory.
@Kuro Alright I didn't actually plan for him to be a bad guy. I wanted to do an anti-dark magic dark magician but I really didn't want him to be too edgy like a vampire hunting vampire so I might have gone too hard into morally ambiguous comic relief to downplay how edgy it was. I personally don't see straight up bad guys doing well in any RP thread even when one follows the evil PC rule of always work with/for the party and do whatever makes them happy, at least I don't see myself being able to pull it off at all. Edited my sheet and will wait for the second review but bullet points of what I at least TRIED.
INCREDIBLY minor changes
Was drunk/dumb at the time, meant letter of introduction but that's basically the same. Changed it but I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter.
Changed the 'hidden tower of magic' to just 'the tower of magic'. At the time I kind of wanted something like the hidden school of magic from craft sequence/choice of deathless in name at least. In practice I wanted it to be an incredibly neutral secret society where mages can conduct research away from politics or major powers in seclusion but send in agents every now and again when things look bad. Removed it since this might have made the backstory more complicated and it added in a random hidden political power. It's just a normal college now.
Made Jack weak to Boba tea, Minty Tea and Lemon pastries.
Fixed formatting and header, I think?
Changed the quote to Jack Admiring wight blades
Changed doctor's bag to bonesaw. He just needs the bonesaw, not the doctor's bag.
Actual Character Changes
Tried to make Jack less morally apathetic, and more magically obsessed.
Attempted to give reason to Jack's obsession with dark magic. Partially his obsession with magic as a whole but largely in an effort to counter said dark magic in the future by studying it. The analogy I gave were doctors studying viruses and diseases.
Gave him a weakness of not wanting to use high leveled necromantic spells out in the field. I want to say because he's afraid how people would react and it might be basically the reason but at the same time that feels kinda edgy to me so I just focused on 'it's dangerous'.
Changed 'learner' to rituals expert. Skill focuses on the identification, execution and defusion of magical rituals in general. Focused on this aspect to get him into the order as a useful member.
Expanded on the necromancy skill, specifically wrote it with a focus on identifying and countering both high-level undead and high-level necromancy spells. Unlikely to blatantly use flashy and obviously necromantic actions
Barely changed the backstory, would just like to highlight that the whole reason he's on the frontline is specifically to write his thesis on anti dark magic and how to fight the dark army if he still feels like a bad guy. If he does still seem like a bad guy I really would like suggestions, if possible, on how to fix him. Maybe it's just Jack of Knives being the picture?
I figured when it comes to countering dark magic the choices are Demonology, Hex Magic and Necromancy since they'd be the most common in a dark army filled with Demons, Orcs and Undead. I picked necromancy since I thought it was the coolest, I'm even more wary of demons than Undead and I feel like Hex Magic would come up least.
