310 lbsPhysical Description:
Shin is a mixed heritage Chinese and English man of roughly average height and spectacularly muscular build. Though this muscular build is not normally fit, it is keen like a blade's edge and damn near as angular. His body from head to toe is coated in thick callouses or scar tissue. Noticeably skin colored and fortunately not too disfiguring, save for a massive hand shaped scar that splits his mouth open and crosses where his right eye once was. The hand print overlaps his hairline and leaves two large chunks of hair missing from the right half of his head. It's a burn scar, so the flesh is warped and deformed, as well as grossly discolored.
Where his left eye once was, now is an artificial eye. Seemingly nonfunctional, it looks like a representation of his original eye. Before the bloodshot look had crept into it, turning it from a regular eye into one of some menace. Now he keeps the eye closed, and wears a leather patch over the hole where his other eye had been exploded.
On his right arm and torso are two other more grossly disfiguring scars, both surgical. However one is very clearly done with a remarkable degree of talent and finesse, while the other seems to have been done by a rather hackneyed surgeon.
The clumsier scar is on his right arm, where a doppelganger of a powerful warrior cleaved his arm from his body. The wound tried to close but Shin repeatedly carved off pieces of himself to keep it from sealing. It is a jagged scar, flesh folded and contorted oddly. A corkscrew shape to where the flesh fused back together is slightly noticeable by the surgical scars and remnants of where stitching had be.
The newer and much cleaner scar was the repair job on his torso and hips, replaced entirely by a newly developed series of artificial organs and durable exoskin coating the patched repair job on his flesh. The skin color of this exoskin and muscle formations beneath it are distinctly nonhuman, but are mostly not visible. It's just a patch of what appears to be pale skin on a moderately tanned body with a musculature that vaguely resembles a face.
He's a lightly tanned man with broad shoulders, his face has lines of a very tired man. His brow furrowed and cheeks almost gaunt with their lack of softness. With his eye closed and gaze generally downcast, he seems to be visibly in a state of depression.
Dressing rather simply with a fastened blue collared shirt with a pair of black slacks. The slacks are worn and tattered around the ankle. On his feet are comfortable white sneakers that are dusted yellow and brown. The bottoms are quite worn down, and it appears as though they've been patched slightly.Psychological Description:
Three times had he been humiliated by users of magic, and three times he'd failed to be the greatest fighter there is. The first angered him, the second drove him insane, and the third broke him. Tore away his illusions of superiority and those thoughts were consumed by the Headsman. When his body was destroyed, the suit brought him to the last person he wanted help from.
This further drove him incursively into himself, and the suit further destroyed his psyche. It ripped itself from him under the possession of The Headsman. Grown strong from the consumed Dragon Soul and Shin's weakened physical and mental state, it stole his eye and left him totally blind. After this, he incursed completely.
After coming to grips with what had happened to him and eventually opening back up, Shin had become someone he'd never been. Though someone he'd felt that he was always supposed to be. He became very reticent and calm, seemingly withdrawn but more to hide what he once was. Rather than hiding who he is currently. Its as though he's suddenly become detached cognitively from the crimes of his past, and now seeks only to make amends and prove himself as the greatest warrior.Abilities:
Biological Immortality: Initially lost as he'd lost the drive to continue service under his godly master, it was his willpower alone that allowed him to continue living. It was thanks to the genetic engineering of LeeRoy that Shin was allowed to become biologically immortal once more. Each cell that dies in his body is immediately replaced, minor wounds seal almost instantly, and major wounds close rather quickly. Not quite enough to regenerate entirely, but quick enough to prevent him from bleeding out from even the most significant wounds. With the alterations made to his body, Shin too no longer needs to breathe save to talk. He is no longer menaced by hunger, thirst or excretion. Even the vacuum of space only provides threat by virtue of freezing his blood in his veins, as this heart re-oxygenates his blood without further input.
Durable Hide: Hardened through innumerable battles, countless scars, and endless regrowth. Shin's skin has become hardened to the same density and strength as leather. His fingertips are as hard as bone and as course as sandpaper. This allows him to survive significantly greater beatings than normal men. A blow that would break a man in half, such as being struck by a car moving at highway speeds, is only enough to push him back. A blade swung by an Olympian level swordsman can simply be allowed to strike him with minor cuts along the line of the swing. His body has become even more supernaturally strong through the implementation of organic sub-dermal implants throughout his entire body. Giving his skin a hardness akin to a rubbery and flexible steel, his bones have been reinforced by injected nanomachines that rearranged the formation of his bone and reprogrammed his cells to repeat this process. The hardness of his bones would naturally only be akin to concrete at their hardest, however with this arrangement it becomes nigh impossible to break his bones without a concentrated applied force to both sides. As the bones now flex significantly with applied force.
Beyond Peak Human Ability: It was when Shin reached this state of sanity that he realized that he had forged himself like a blade, but was a blade with no sheath. Only honed to kill, and functionally beyond that he was a useless living man. He sought to improve his strength to be more than a man, but a living machine. And through the use of mechanical training methods, invented and built solely for the use of Shin's particular body type. Each and every muscle was forged in fire and steel, hammered into shape through constant use under intense physical training.
+Strength- With adversity comes strength, with diversity comes challenge. Shin has faced both and came out stronger for it, pushing his body to the absolute limits of human strength. The old adage is true, what doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. And nothing thus far has managed to kill Shin. His body is unnaturally dense muscle, more akin to artistically crafted machinery than to a living being. His muscles akin to piston driven pile drivers, his grip like a mechanical vice. With a straight punch, no wind up or buildup, he can drive his hand cleanly through modern riot armor or armor plating on assault vehicles. Puncturing through fully to the wrist with little resistance. (Comparable materials he can punch through. Two inches of construction grade steel, two feet of concrete up to the elbow, and realistically he can just walk through a normal person given enough leverage.) The limits of his lifting strength are surprisingly low, given he's seemed to cap out at 4.5 tons of weight overhead. So too can he shoulder near 10 tons if it were dropped on him, and with nigh indefinite stamina he can carry it. Albeit rather slowly.
+Speed and Agility- Cardio and athleticism are important part of physical training. Shin takes his body as seriously as the Vatican takes the Pope. His body is a temple, and it must be maintained in every way shape and form. His legs are as toned as his upper body, giving him incredible mobility. He can run at highway speed, 75 miles per hour. Every footstep can tear up turf while in full sprint. As well, he has agility to dwarf the ability of any human gymnast. Able to perform several aerial flips from a standing position, he even has the ability to wall run for short periods and wall jump. With raw grip strength he can cling to walls while running along them, even through his shoes. His vertical jump is remarkable, capable of leaping straight up into the air to roughly 15 feet from standing. With a bit of buildup and deep crouch, he can reach up to 22 feet vertical. Horizontally he's capable of 35 feet standing and 110 feet with a running start.
+Stamina- Before, his stamina was linked directly to his immortality. Nigh unlimited, but when his immortality was revoked and gained through alternative means he earned a different alternative. Through the use of drugs to aid his physical exertion, as well as mechanical methods through which to build his stamina and endurance. He's managed to reach a comparable level of stamina to what he had before. Able to continuously fight and labor for 24 entire hours, this is at peak exertion. The only way to keep Shin down is by crippling him, and even then he will fight until he's totally dismembered or disemboweled.
+Tolerance- His pain tolerance before was due to a lack of self preservation, physical hardiness and religious fanaticism to murder. Now he's garnered a new resilience to pain, beyond even that of his lunacy. Shin handles pain as if it simply didn't register. A severed limb, a broken bone, bleeding wound; None cause any reaction beyond a gritting of teeth, a clenching of a fist, etch. Small noticeable reactions, but insignificant ones.
Accelerated Thought: In his training to compensate for his lack of an eye, he's enhanced his thought processes to what could be considered nigh instantaneous. At 12x human thought processing and an increased reaction time to match, able to whip around in place within the blink of an eye and deliver a volley of blows to a normal man before he can react. His thought processes have been increased to such a degree that he sometimes can shut himself off by thinking about too much at once, so his thoughts become an indistinguishable haze. It allows for simple and quick meditation. On the battlefield and in his work he is a supercomputer, designed to analyze the most logical next step for both himself and his project.
The Black Palm: Some sort of residual leftover from the abilities that he utilized while owner of the Black Staff. Shin can increase the temperature, weight, and hardness of his hands to particularly intense degrees. With seemingly no ill effects on him, as it does not seem he feels the weight or heat. As well, his hands can deflect, grip, and strike anything so long as he has the will to do so. Anything physical, metaphysical, conceptual, magical, or magic adjacent is not immune to the strike of his hands.
-The Max Temperature is hot enough to boil iron, so too does it increase the temperature of the air almost immediately in his vicinity. To no visible or obvious effect on Shin. It seems that his hands begin to glow and radiate with the heat.
-The Max Weight is near fifty tons, giving his hands the strike force of a fully loaded truck. Concentrated into two very small points. His hands get visibly more angular with sharper corners and a blockier edge along his knuckles.
-The Max Hardness is akin to refined tungsten, and it seems as though his hands are coated in a thin layer of a light metallic coat.
The Lost Eye: In what should have been blackness, Shin saw light and a reflection of himself. Who he was, who he is, and who he should have been. This self reflection gave him insight, and a new sense to replace the eyes that he's lost in life. The world has left him with no sight, but he is not blind. Instead he sees the world in reflection. Standing beneath the world he looks at it from below, and in greater clarity than he'd ever had with his eyes. His world is an endless glassy mirror wasteland, infinite in expanse and with no breaks. In the reflection he sees the world as it is. Unchanged for everyone except him, for the world is unchanged with or without him. This is the truth that he saw, that the world would not change whether or not he existed or did not. The more intrinsically powerful they are spiritually, physically, or other objective power; The more bright their reflection is in his world. To a degree that he can approximate how powerful a person is, and in response he can consume one of three pills.
+Dash- From any position he can move himself in a straight line as far as he chooses, as well as stopping at any point. At the same speed with which he can run full sprint. Allowing him to rapidly evade at full speed without missing a beat. This seems to drag him in that direction, however it is more akin to sliding. As in his perspective he is moving across a glass surface. This works in the air, allowing for midair course correction. It also allows him to reach instant full speed from a standing position.
+Air Walk- Swapping from the real perspective to his perspective allows him to stand on the air, when in truth he is standing on the ground in his world. Allowing him to walk on air or simply stand on it, going so far as being capable of standing totally horizontal at times.
+Double Jump- In the middle of a jump he can jump again, indefinitely. As he can switch his perspective of standing from the real world to his world, thus giving him the ability to leap at full standing height from any position.Equipment:
The Three Pills: They are color coded with different textures. Red, Green and Black respectively.
+The First Pill- A simple direct upgrade, doubling all of his stats. Save for those involved with the Metaphysical abilities and The Black Palm. Allowing him to surpass his natural limitations and push his body to its absolute peak. This pill consists of a pain inhibitor, powerful steroid and methamphetamine. Giving him clarity, power and speed. At the cost of gaining intense tunnel vision.
+The Second Pill- A less simple upgrade, this extends the effects of the Black Palm to his entire body. Giving him the ability to increase his durability to indisputable levels. Coating his entire body in a layer of flexible armor with hardness comparable to tungsten. Sacrificing some hardness for flexibility, his body becomes susceptible to the weight gain across the entirety. Which lessens the amount of weight he has in his hands, but making him nigh immovable. As well it allows him to deflect incredibly powerful attacks across the entirety of his body, rather than relying solely on his hands for defense.
+The Third Pill- Even less simple, this allows him to tap fully into his own world of reflections. Giving him comparable speed to the first pill. Allowing him to rapidly traverse the air and ground with no visible change in speed from standing, his net gain of speed is instant. He can ascend and descend at angles with no alteration in speed, making it near impossible to judge his movements.
All Three Pills: This combines all of the effects previously mentioned. Effectively quadrupling his speed, strength and durability. Granting him immense mobility control, defensive measures and offensive measures. It also has the effect of increasing his ability to generate heat in his hands. With the speed at which he moves, throwing a punch while his hands are alight ignites the air in a massive chain reaction. Firing off a directional explosion with the force of a train in motion and with the heat required to contact melt tungsten.
