Reality is a jungle. I am the hunter. Everyone else is prey.
The above image is her basic aesthetic and look, though I imagine her animal features are a little more exaggerated. Additionally stripes on arms and legs, More claw-like hands, and very pronounced fangs. She stands roughly 6 foot even with the ears. In addition to the scars on her face, one of which nearly blinding her in her right eye, hence the discolorations, she has various combat scars on her arms and legs as well.Age:
28Universe of Origin:
Whoever Kriss was before losing her family, it would be hard to say. That person seemed to have died with her family. Who she is now is, in a word, intense. She has a straightforward nature, not one to mince words or hold back opinions. She has a quick temper, but she doesn't seem to hold grudges. Perhaps her single-minded desire for vengeance upon the Hakaishin who destroyed her world has taken up all the room she has for petty grievances. She’s been alone for the better part of 3 years now, scaring off or killing anyone she's seen while sticking mostly to wild and inhospitable planets, so how she'll interact with teammates and training partners will remain to be seen. Has she abandoned attachments to avoid pain, or will she find a new family in this unlikely band of warriors?Bio:
Universe 9 is a violent and harsh universe to live in. To survive takes strength and determination, to thrive takes something more. Kriss had more strength than some, and with no one attachments, she did what she must to survive. Time and struggle forged her from a feral youth into a strong and fierce woman, able to carve out a living in the wild struggle for life. She never wanted more than to keep moving forward and providing for herself. Despite that, in time, she found she had things she never set out to find: Love, family, a husband, children, a place to call home. There was a blissful, handful of years where the Maeroko woman believed she found a lasting happiness. Queen of her jungle of a universe, strong enough to protect and provide for her family. But nothing is certain in the jungle. Even a mighty tiger can lose everything to a god.
While off-world on a job, her planet was visited by their universe’s Hakaishin. It doesn’t take much imagination to figure out what happened next. The discovery that her world wasn’t even left as rubble, that there wasn’t remains to bury of her lost loved ones, that there wasn’t a single thing left to remember them by, broke her in ways that words could not describe. Rage and grief consumed her and left her a shell of what she was. She spent a few years afterward as a wandering half-mad animal. She went from world to world, fighting, killing, and wishing to find a foe powerful enough to end her pain.
She couldn’t tell you how many fell before her in those few years. She knew her hands were stained with the blood of countless warriors. She longed for an honorable death to find her. But, despite the odds, she always managed to survive. One day, after a particularly savage fight, Kriss was resting in a cave. As she was licking her wounds, an angel appeared before her. Only exhaustion kept her from attacking the stranger. Though her greeting to the angel was nothing more snarling fangs and barred claws, the Angel offered her something that pulled her back to sanity, a chance to gain enough strength to challenge gods. Her world crystalized the drowning chaos of despair into a new kind of clarity. A goal to focus her pain and suffering towards, vengeance.Aura Color:
Fiery RedPreferred Fighting Style:
Melee, minor blast/energy techniques
Kriss has always been an up close and personal fighter. Fangs and claws and passion. Overwhelming foes with a relentless ferocity that could almost seem like wild madness. But she isn’t a mad dog, she is a mighty hunter. She fights with savage speed and agility, her attacks meant to wound, disable, to weaken her foes so that she may move in for the kill. She can throw the odd Ki blast now and again, but it’s not exactly her preferred or most practiced skill. Most of her energy skills are meant to augment her hand to hand combat.Signature Combat Techniques:
Bloody Claws: Running into a foe that is tougher or stronger than you isn’t uncommon in Universe 9. This technique is meant to help overcome that difference in power by allowing her to focus her offense has helped her bring down daunting foes in the past. By focusing her energy on her hands and the tips of claws, she makes them more likely to rend and damage. (Think Destructo disc on the fingers, though perhaps less intensely devastating)
Inferno Rush: For a brief time Kriss can channel her ki in a manner that boosts her speed, though it cuts her raw power. The intensity of this focused ki manifests in her body, generating great amounts of heat and her ki, even generating fire about her hands and feet, adding an extra layer of damage to the attack. This move is somewhat strenuous on her as one might imagine.
Blazing Roar: As of yet, her only named long-range attack, as well as the closest thing she has to an ace in the hole. As the name suggests, she unleashes a savage blast of fiery ki from her mouth. This takes a lot out of her to use and is meant to be an attack of overwhelming force and fire when her claws and fists fail her.Approximate Combat Strength:
