Name: Mori Nagayoshi
Title: Demon Musashi
Era: 1558 - 1584
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Personality: Short tempered, ruthless, and rough around the edges, Lancer considers most things other than battle, women, food, and treasure to be "A waste of my freakin' time!"
He has some sense of honour and loyalty, but doesn't have an issue with underhanded attacks so much as he simply doesn't have the brains for them. If he actually managed to pull off something like a sneak attack or deception, his comment would be "Shoulda' been ready, knucklehead."
He hates having those kinds of arguments used on him, though. He's more or less the cocky brute he seems to be on the outside. The only people who get honest respect from him are those who offer him a straightforward challenge in combat.
Bio: A servant of the Oda clan known for his ferocity in battle, violent temper, and legendary horseback riding. His butchering of enemy troops was enough to a reputation as a devil, though of course he was merely a man. He perished during the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute, fighting to aid Toyotomi Hideyoshi until his last breath.Parameters
Luck: EClass Skill
Magic Resistance D: Cancels single-action spells against Lancer, and slightly reduces magical damage.Personal Skills
Knowledge of Melees B: A high level of skill is displayed in group combat, whether fighting among or against a large force.
Riding X: Normally a high-class talent for maneuvering on horseback. Due to the state of his Noble Phantasm, it can be viewed as a 'Running' ability instead, allowing high speeds to be achieved, and to go beyond one's limits when facing a faster enemy.
Devil of War A: Represents Lancer's reputation as a fierce and violent soldier. Comprises high spearmanship and comprehension of enemy fighting styles, as well as some allowance to make use of other arts of war (swords, bows, rifles, throwing weapons) at a moderate level if the situation demands it. Lancer lacks the ability to survive fatal wounds, but the rage and commitment he puts behind his actions in battle means that if he will not falter due to suffering damage mid-attack. Noble Phantasms
Name: Boneless Man
Title: Like a 1000 Degree Spear Through Butter
NP Type: Anti-Unit (Anti Army)
Range: 1~4 (1~25)
Maximum Number of Targets: 1 person (40 people)
Description: Nagayoshi's long-headed spear, said to be able to slice with such ease that the enemy may as well have no bones. Strikes with this weapon ignore hardness and protection passively at an exceptionally low mana cost, making it a deadly ability that can constantly be in effect with each swing. Additionally, thanks to the Lancer class container, a true name release is possible. This release draws on Nagayoshi's identity as a blood-drenched juggernaut of the front lines, dicing everything in a wide radius around him as his spear becomes a whipping silver tornado. Since this attack is impossible to withstand, survival is dependant on passing an AGI check to retreat out of range in time.
Name: One Hundred Steps
Title: Gold Rush!
NP Type: Anti-Unit
Maximum Number of Targets: 1
Description: Nagayoshi's horse, said to be the fastest in Japan. It displayed an impossible feat by reaching a far-off gold mine in a mere 100 steps. Nagayoshi and his steed are lauded as being capable of impossible journeys, and his riding skills are top-notch despite being limited to a mundane beast. Its power to reach any destination is accounted for by Lancer's own willpower and enthusiasm, whether a greed for gold or some other motivator of the moment. Distance and obstacles mean nothing to this incredible mount.
Unfortunately, due to not being in the Rider class, Nagayoshi does not possess such a steed and thus cannot use this Noble Phantasm."You thought that was gonna stop me!?"
...It seems the phrase 'obstacles mean nothing' is not just for show. In this case, the lack of a horse is no issue for Lancer, who replicates the achievement using his own two feet. Having taken on the status of his own horse, Lancer passively gains a boost to his speed, including a severe increase to his long-distance running, which reaches the level of phantasmal beasts. Using the true name of this Noble Phantasm, the anecdote of an impossible journey can be replicated. No matter who or what Nagayoshi selects as his destination, he is guaranteed to arrive there, with the supernatural effects used in that journey depending on what's needed.
This ability may be used offensively by choosing a destination such as an enemy's heart or brain for a can't-miss fatal attack. The target of this must make a LUK check to offset the destination somewhat, with a moderate success shunting the destination to a nonfatal part of their body and a high success preventing the attack from entering the body at all. This ability does take some time to take effect, with a delay between activation and the attack being equivalent to 100 steps (though restraining Lancer's feet will not prevent it). Though if Lancer comes within a few feet of a target, the attack will trigger immediately.
