Subject Post 1Subject: Hiriko Stravinsky Rügen [APPROVED, 0-3 /0-3] [Blank] Mon Jun 02, 2014 4:32 am
» Name: Hiriko Stravinsky Rügen (Порадуйтесь Уильяма Хогарта, 'Half'), a name that Hiriko herself came up with. Rather than the tradition of Hindu names between most Rakshasa, Hiriko thought up a customized name for herself, a Russian name that she thought it may sound better and more rare-ish. It holds the meaning of 'Half', which slightly proclaims that she is slightly different than most Rakshasa but never strays from her race nor the position she was put up with and under the reason that she is a half-japanese and a half-russian if she remembers correctly. As far as she knows, russian names are rather fancy for one.
» Titles: Eye Of The Manipulator, a self-given title by Hiriko because of her tendency to manipulate the people around him using fake emotions, body signs and has quite the skill to cover out her true motives of her own lies, even against the people that have sharp senses. At a point when it is dire, she could trick herself by her own lies in order for the rest of the people around her to trust her false deeds, the lies stacked upon one onto another, and manipulate them throughoutly to succeed her goals. Her skill in deception truly allows her to attain such title.
» Age: Hiriko is just about 314 years old. Just about 50 years or so later after Rakshasa existed and was known to the world, replaced the previous guardians of Hell, that is when Hiriko became a Rakshasa from the moments of her birth, although, it was through a natural selection itself. Not the oldest nor the youngest Rakshasa in terms of age, she is considered young in appearance despite of her actual age.
» Gender: Being officially deemed to be a female in terms of appearance, Hiriko is an asexual being. Under the influence of her ability, she could change her appearance at her own will, though it may be a rare occurance that she changes her gender at times, it is still possible that she would do so. Allowing her to possess sexual organs of both genders upon changing using her abilities, this allows her to become an asexual being. Although Hiriko has no specific gender herself, it is deemed that she is 'officially' a female, a girl, nothing else than that.
» Race: Rakshasa
» Layer: Hiriko resides in 201st layer of hell. The appearance of her respective layer, in its default state, has red-colored bricks on its floor with the faces of screaming souls, walls that are plain red and ceilings are floating lava that lights up her layer with light. Not a room, and it seems to widen its space when one flies higher or gets closer to the walls, making her layer almost indefinitely wide.
» Affiliation/Rank: In every layers of Hell between all of the existing Rakshasa, there is no 'ranks' nor is there a leader that leads them. However, she does have her own respective layer and has a single position as a Rakshasa. Just like most or if not, all Rakshasa does, was to prevent intruders from further intruding deeper into the layers of Hell and to maintain order within her own respective layer, and keeping watch for any possible prisoners of Hell that is attempting to escape. Despite being the Guardian of Hell, there are times she moves away from her layer and into the living world for the purpose to explore and understand. Not clear with the reason behind her actions in visiting the living realm from Hell, it may be either a pure purpose to search for heavy sinners and to turn them into the prisoners of Hell or to explore out of curiousity. No one exactly knows why.
» Written Appearance: Hiriko, a girl that is considered within her elementary years under the spectacle of her tiny stature, people deemed her too young for her own age to be a Rakshasa, especially being part of Hell's layer in where she was assigned to, many seem to judge her appearance too much rather to know how old she was in an actual age. Despite her own child-like stature, she is quite a powerful being in combat especially in Hell, so it wouldn't be a good idea to not watch out and underestimate Hiriko's capability in combat.
Hiriko stands at about 4 feet 5 inches tall, not as surprised for girls at her age, she weighs probably between 70 to 75 pounds, not too thin and not too fat, her body mass is rather average and her figure seems smooth and delicate for someone as small as she is. Considering with what she knew about each layers of Hell, she may be one of the shortest Rakshasa out of every possible of them that are within every layers of Hell. Though, that is just a speculation and it is not entirely accurate, only to follow what she has with her current information about it.
Her hair style is rather messy in nature, though Hiriko once said that it suits her nature of being a Rakshasa, and keeping her hair that way would keep her as 'original' as possible of being a girl. Her hair color is considered a natural blue hair, born under the genes of her own parents, there are rarely any childrens or even families to have at least a natural blue hair, born from a family's heritage and she was the only daughter born from two Rakshasas that had recessive genes of a natural blue hair, thus her hair color. From a closer look, despite looking as messy as it is, it seemed to be properly brushed by Hiriko on her daily basis, keeping its shape as the way it is wihout messing around with it, and because of that, her body grew used to her own fixed hair style that it would naturally adjust itself back to its original hair style, ensuring her not to worry much about it if it was ever messed up within a combat.
For her dressing, Hiriko dons a small dress with many intricate designs in the middle areas, connected to a bottom skirt that covers her entire lower body. The dress's blouse displays a set of lighter color edges on either side of the loose shoulder garments. Around her neck, with lighter outlines visible as well, the blouse is gifted with a hole revealing a small portion of her chest. Further; her stomach is covered by a slightly thicker adornment that spots a display of complex artwork. On the back, Kohina dons a piece of clothing that allows her to sheath her double blades. Finally, the bottom of the dress that covers her lower regions seems to have two layers of clothing, resembling petals, and being of a light color. A set of clothes that she seemingly always wears whether she would stay within the very gates of hell and her own respective layer, and absent from it to enjoy herself in the living realm, her clothings never really change from time to time.
☣Manipulative: The main box of her deepest personality, and even for the sharpest eye of a man or a woman, such personality of hers is nigh-impossible to detect because it became part of her life and survival, something that she used for a long time since her own existence appeared, a natural instict and personality that nobody knows other than her closest family or friends, the only 'people' that she is willing to open her heart to do and show her true natures of a Rakshasa.
Hiriko is mainly a manipulative person, using any means possible to stack up her deception and lies with her words and mind itself, and for her to have mastered the world of deception itself, everything she says, expresses and even body and mental language she shows made her lies so real that even for a master lie detector, her deception is almost hard to pinpoint whether she is making a deception out of it or not, making her one of many Rakshasas that has an utmost skill in lying and deception, and she could trick just about anyone into believing her no matter how much distrust they have against her. Interestingly, she pinpoints every possible way to 'erase' any means of hints or signs that shows the fact that she is lying, crushing these so-called 'emotions' of hers and going as far as lying to both her senses, body and mind to make herself to believe her own words as well, and allows her to express and show emotions that is undoubtfully real to everyone and anyone around her, and these lies and deception she made was not to cover any sort of truth or any other intentions, as Hiriko creates these lies through a great process of her mental ability in order to manipulate anyone she finds useful or those she wants to involve in her plot, giving her much lesser work to do and let the other handle it as long as they can make them believe her very words that she speaks.
Possessing endless combination to build fake reasons and fabrications to cover up her deceptions, it makes it tough to know the truth behind it as well, all in order to make her work easier, simpler and would not require much of work to do all by herself, allowing her to use others as if they were her tools and make them do the things that she would not or could not do all by herself, and the main reason why she lacks friends as well. Whenever her plan fails or if the deception was seen past through by someone, she would have two option to begin with, by either build another wall of new combinations of deception and lies to cover her true intentions which would be an almost simple task for her and act as if she was the victim behind all of the lies she made to continue manipulating the person that Hiriko wants to manipulate, or to simply tell them the truth as if nothing ever happened nor would she ever care if it failed. Considering her skill in deception and lies, she is known to be one of very few top 'Con Artists' that could make her own lies seemed so real that it would be stupid to not believe her words, even for anyone else that are skilled in conning and deception, they would still bite the bait of lies she set up.
☣Easygoing: The convenience of her abilities was quite the root of her easygoing personality, where she takes things not as seriously as she should be even as her duties of being a Rakshasa, venturing outside from the layer she was assigned in and out from Hell, doing what she calls 'freedom' although as a guardian, she doesn't seem to abandon her task and continues what she was meant for no matter how easy she takes it. But that's what makes things fun around her, that because of such facts, Hiriko takes life around very easily wihout any weight bearing on her shoulders nor was there any worries that she may think of throughout her entire span of life when she first began as her time of being the guardian of Hell.
However, despite potraying such simple personality, when it comes to combat, she would more or less take it on a lighter way, with the capabilities of her abilities, she prefers to keep her fights simple and easy for her to enjoy herself into. Some people views her easygoing traits to be taken as an advantage as a weakness but it may be a wrong move to take themselves into, since she does it merely to kill her own time from boredom, it was meant to be easy for her opponents to deal with, instead of killing the entirety of the mood for her fights and finishing the way she does not expect, but she would not ever mind if others take her as a child who should not be taken seriously, since for once, it was undoubtfully rare for Hiriko to get serious unless the situation calls for it of being dire or given for it of being an important time, viewing her for being a serious individual would be hard for those who witnessed it to believe it.
☣Playful: A very playful person indeed. With her tendencies of deceiving people around her and took the situations quite in an easygoing way, the playful side of Hiriko's personality fits in well with how she always does each and every single day, wherever and whenever she is. Taking her enemies easily, she loves to play with her victims, no matter how strong or weak they are, with how her abilities run, it always gives her the feeling as if the world is running her own rules and she is the one who sets up the entire game, joyfully playing around with her enemies like toy soldiers that are staying on her board.
Men or women, adult or childrens, she would play with them altogether, as long as they can satisfy her as an entertainment to kill her time and keep her entertained, she would just keep screwing around with them from tip to toe, both physically and mentally until they either break apart or that she loses interest in them. Not being a type that kills people, the moment she finds her 'entertainments' to be boring or at its peak where they mentally break apart, she would release them from their so-called 'misery' from the games. To Hiriko, the second a person steps against her, they are already in a board of games, and that would be the very moment when she begins to turn them into her toys. However, she won't be nice enough if someone messes up her 'rules' and 'games', that is when the dark side of her fun would appear right on the board.
☣Sadist: How dark Hiriko can be, she is one of the sadists that seemingly takes pleasure when she witness the pain of the others, that how such personality was developed is unknown. From the boredom she always had during her times in Hell, seeing the pain of others from injuries to even death can simply amuse her so much that there would not be a single remorse in her even if her closest ones were to ever die in her hands. It was done so to give herself entertainment and to 'test' out the potential of her abilities against others, to make her laugh, to take pleasure from it, in a level where her sadism can be classified in various ways of how she takes them. To Hiriko, taking pleasure from the pain of the others around her and see their cries of pain from being deceived by her when she finds them useless to continue her objectives anymore or has completed it, it was meant only as a sort of entertainment to clear out every atom of her boredom from tip to toe until she no longer finds it entertaining to observe it again.
Unlike other sadists, Hiriko seems to have quite a control over her sadism, that she doesn't simply take pleasure seeing the pain of anyone that she witnesses, that as long as she finds them unentertaining or boring, to see their limbs being amputated would never amuse her unless they can flip the switch in her head to show how much they are worth to give her the 'fun' she needs, and that's when her sadistic personality comes into the play, this is why it was described as that she has a control over how her personality works and how she perceive the entertainment itself.
☣Mysterious: Despite how open she was with people around her and how manipulative she is even against the closest of people to her, Hiriko is a girl who you can't seem to read properly like a book, with randomly scribbled words that it would be difficult to understand what she writes on her face, or even her body languages that gives her a mysterious vibe. Although it is not confirmed, there are chances that Hiriko had something of her own to hide behind the masked mysteriousness behind her smile and playful personality of hers, it seems to build up so well by itself that it would be hard to write it out whether if she is speaking the truth or a bunch of cover-ups in excuses to keep her deception going. Truly, it is hard to understand what she is thinking in every aspect of her personality or actions to a point where logic and reasoning can describe her in every possible way one can think of.
☠ The Birth Of A Rakshasa A child, in Hell, truly a remarkable situation, is it? With one of the rarest phenomena that was able to happen in Hell, there was a child born from two Rakshasas, unknown of their identity, they may have been killed, exiled or any means that they may or may not have vanquished from the very lands of Hell itself to become a rogue, these questions are not yet answered but once in many years, the newborn girl, considered to be nameless and seperate from her parents upon birth, she was naturally selected as a Rakshasa due to her genetics connected to her parents, her very body drawing from the very hell itself and being one of the 'Demon Of Hell' born from a Rakshasa, rather than a normal demon, to step foot being one of the guardians of hell and eventually assigned to her own respective layer, which was the 201st layer and brought up by a fellow Rakshasa whom she was unable to remember under the condition of her hazy memories about her own past, considering that she was an infant, the Rakshasa wihout a name was raised, of course, with gifted talents and extraordinary abilities that differs from most Rakshasas and demons that can attain it, the step of becoming a Rakshasa began in the era of where Rakshasas took over Hell about fifty years later after their existence was known publicly across the depths of hell and the world itself.
Raised under a rough condition by her foster parent as a Rakshasa, in order to harness her abilities and become a considerable and formidable guardian of hell especially under the layer she was living in, the hits were harsh from every corner and edges of every cut was indeed painful to her flesh. There was no pitiness about kinship or their relationship at all, with each that marks her skin with the rough edges she went through, it was not until the discovery of her abilities when she was a child, much younger looking than she currently was before her personality became a huge switch from her past and current, that fear instilled within her so much that her ability was subconciously unleashed throughout the lands of her very own layer, with a single word of 'stop', it freezes anything that gets near her for a temporary amount of time, negating any kinetic energy, force and its direction where it moves that freezes the object in place before it fell to its ground. Since it was not fully known nor was there enough data to how her ability works when it was discovered for the first time, the first conclusion of her ability was either kinetic manipulation or vector manipulation, however, it soon went much indepth than usual as she grew in age, and somehow, when it comes to appearance, it doesn't seem like she is growing any older.
☠ The Rakshasa's Discovery The truth of her own ability was realized around the age of a hundred, as it seems that when she was unable to take a complete control of her abilities with a limited potential behind it, the reality itself seems to grant any words she spoke, whether such things exists or not, it would altogether defy logic itself from ever understanding how her ability works, however, a price comes with her ability, that her flesh began to rip open when the words she spoke became much.. large-scaled, when it began from the word of 'stop' to more something exaggerating, such as causing an explosion to building a skyscraper with just a single word from her mouth, which in exchange, it equally gave her a rip to a flesh that is equivalent to the things she made, built, allowed it to exist and form itself into the reality world with her very words, giving her a heavy torment to her physical body each and every hit against it.
Of course, distorting and warping the reality is not an easy task, considering its heavy potential and powerful aspects that allows her to do her bidding, even her ability as a Rakshasa that connected to the aspect of death, is not enough to use the power at its peak, giving her a limited use and control over it and unallowing her from warping everything or even anything, limiting her options to be able to distort things that are considered to be something 'that can be done' alone. Of course, there are many that may wonder the existence of her Hell Beast, Kagetane, and it was clearly who she is with in the past as well, her 'Foster Parent', due to reasons that her physical body cannot contain the intense power and the pressure of using such an ability forced her to split her 'counterpart' which manifests Kagetane's existence, and that was the result of her 'suppressed' abilities, however, as it used to be more potent than what it used to be, her abilities are still considered as 'powerful' and should be only be used under certain circumstances, but soon overruled with the fact that she requires her ability to maintain her lifestyle, hence with no restrictions in using her abilities other than knowing the scale of using it and how much it is used per day/thread, it becomes apart of her own body and soul when the ability itself crossed paths with her energy.
Discovered shortly when she tried to understand the fundamentals of her powers, merely through knowledge itself and tried to study quantum physics on her own using her abilities, even attempting to gain information on such powers throughout Hell with any possible associates that may allow her to be more indepth with her ability's nature, and each information that was given would be tested, even theories given would be tested which further enhances her physical tolerance with pain as well, and more understanding of how her ability works and influences of each word she says, stretching and improving her control over time under the assistance of information and the supervision of her Hell Beast, it was soon officially announced as an ability called 'Reality Distortion' due to nature of how it works, but limited to her words per say, so just taping her mouth would be easy to keep her abilities at bay, a method mostly used by those ones that are pretty close to her and had seen the feats of her power.
☠ The Rakshasa's Invitation
One of the strangest days and most exciting yet in that very day in Hell, when Devil 9 was established recently before the freedom of Hell that was brought upon the world, an amusing person had appeared to invite her into their.. 'organization', a 'team' or a group of 'people' who seems to serve under the infamous Shadowfall, where the Demon God rules and guides its followers, it was very much the first meeting between Inami Asthavon, one of the daughters in the sisterhood, with the name 'Asthavon' itself was enough powerful among Rakshasas. It was nothing more than a short but sweet invitation given to Hiriko to make a great use of her powers and becoming an adopted daughter of 'Inami Asthavon', of course, in order to create a direct bond between both of them, she was given by one of the Royal Blood to have its power flow within her veins, before being intervened by Kagetane and went for a bloody rush, soon stopped by Hiriko before a disaster befalls between both of them, and suffered a heavy injury due to her attempts to reverse time. Her memories was hazy at that point, but she was sure that it was the time when Inami and Hiriko became mother and daughter, while indirectly, after that very moment, they share the same blood running in their bodies, energy that resembles each other and is now a 'direct' descendant of one of the Asthavons, though herself is an impure Asthavon due a blood being shared to her and intermixed with her body which created a conflict between their energies, it was a real event, and it can be as realistic as it could be.
☠ Current Time
A great outroar amongst Rakshasas and Hell Beasts when the gates of Hell was opened for their own freedom, while they still retain the position and their purpose despite the gate being opened, but this gave a new freedom to every Guardian that resides within Hell, an opportunity to become either good or evil, and even neutral, some established groups that welcomes these Guardians to their league and become apart of their army, but to Hiriko, none of that was an interest to her, just like always, staring off at the screen of her own show and wondering the future of her own. Tick tock, goes the clock, from the second it ticks, a new game begins, and of course, a new path opens up for Rakshasas like her to move. As interesting as it may be, the world becomes a new discovery for her when the gates opened for beings like her.

Subject Post 2Subject: Re: Hiriko Stravinsky Rügen [APPROVED, 0-3 /0-3] [Blank] Thu Jun 12, 2014 6:39 am
☣Spiritual Power: Considering for her own abilities, Hiriko's spiritual power can be considered as something terrifyingly powerful, and enough for her to use her abilities over and over again since it is absolutely taxing for any abilities that allows someone to distort reality as if they are using it as a game. However, despite that her spiritual power is earth-shattering, but it does not induce a feeling where one would feel as if they are pressured by the gravity upon unleashing her spiritual power miles away, instead, they would feel uneasy, uncomfortable, odd as if their body is acting funny, eyes would twitch and muscles would twitch as well from the influence of her spiritual power. Her reiatsu can produce both black and dark blue color, but what makes it truly odd is that these reiatsu would swirl, twist and bend the fabrics of space-time around her, as if the light is distorted throughoutly, though such effects would not affect anything at all, but its appearance and the feeling that her spiritual power gives off is truly mysterious, and unpredictable at the same time.
☣Reserves: Of course, Hiriko has her own energy reserves to contain, since she cannot walk around with her power exploding all the time wherever she moves, this reserve was created in order to contain any extra powers in order to prevent any leaking as well. These reserves not only contain her own energy, but part of Inami's energy as well. Well known for their connections as mother and daughter, though non-biological of sorts, when their blood was shared, with part of Inami's nature and energy containing in that blood, it was obvious that Hiriko had received a small portion of that energy and contained it as a reserve seperately from her own. That small portion of energy from Inami was soon easily utilized by Hiriko since she had accepted that power, the connection and the 'promise' between both of them, and that connection gave her the capability to produce and utilize small portion of that energy of Inami's. However, the only thing is that because of their differences in energy wavelengths, indeed that using Inami's energy alone can make her abilities more powerful to distort, but the results are clear that it is less compatible, which could fairly weaken her physical body and could cause internal bleeding under circumstances, which means that it is advised that Hiriko should only use Inami's spiritual energy when required, since the merit is that it could make her distortion ability far more powerful and large-scale to effect, but in exchange for that power and because of the incompatibility and conflicts between her energy and physical and Inami's, this can cause an internal damage from internal bleeding to damaging the organs, hence why the reserves were seperated between her own extra spiritual energy and Inami's. While fusion effect is possible, but life-threatening at some point with low chances of death but possible.
☣Physical Abilities: Despite with all that spiritually prowess, given that Hiriko cannot spiritually nor physically enhance herself in many aspects, though she is considerably, if not, terrifyingly powerful in terms of comparing herself through spiritual power, the capacity of which she can use and the range of influence she can do using her spiritual power, in truth, Hiriko can terrible and fragile when it comes to physical combat. Despite being able to withstand many forms of pain no matter how torturing they are, what makes her weak is her physical abilities. Her strength is like a child's that can never hurt an insect, durability that even a pocket knife can cut her skin when lightly pressed, speed of a normal human child and 'physical stamina' [ Not to be mistaken with her spiritual energy ] are pretty much in a normal rate where running a few meters would make her tired. This is how the scale of her physical abilities goes, that in general, she was never meant for physical combat and more in the zone of being spiritually powerful and physically fragile.
☣Huge Array Of Intellect: Being one of her main aspects, her intelligence are the most important asset or at least one can call, an 'ability' or a 'natural talent' that she requires to have in order to keep her abilities in the flow wihout losing any control and enough to last for almost an eternity to use, providing her an endless amount of combinations for her to use her abilities to throw back against her opponents, that even if they were to figure out how her abilities works, it would be more or less of a dummy information for them to obtain and feel confident about.
Her intelligence level is not known, but with her given knowledge, her mind can peer even into the most complex builds within any object as long as they don't fall into the category of the 'unknown' and 'exists yet it does not exist', solving complex puzzles, build a strategy that works for herself and provide her an understanding and knowledge against the impossible itself, that no matter how complex one may be, whether would it be a form of energy or an object, she seem to be able to peer through these impossible facts, and even bypass any dummy information that may be used in order to give the observer the wrong detail about their abilities or energy, however, even so, she cannot see through these things wihout actually encounter it at least twice, or if an attack lasts long enough in a post, she could take her time to understand its structure, atoms, wavelengths, anything that she could to understand every atom of it from tip to toe, and working her way through if the atom has 'faults' against it, something that gives her the false calculation when she peered into the atoms of the very object or energy, and if so, it would take longer for her to break down its entire mathematical equations to provide its actual structure through the alteration of the false one.
Hiriko's brain may not be the smartest but it makes up her incapability to fight against her opponents directly, and using her distortion ability to do the work for her, which requires a huge knowledge of any possible thing in existence, while having such knowledge, she cannot understand the 'unknown', something with properties that is inherently unknown or does not have any 'logic' behind the very structure, something like that. Giving her a wide variety of combinations and imaginations, keeping her cornered in a battle would certainly become a task that is not impossible but tough to achieve in a way of how her brain works. Hiriko is certainly someone with the wits but not with the muscles, and with brains, she is a terrifying one to deal with.
☣Unnatural Tolerance Of Pain: The drawbacks of her ability that applied against her because of its 'Equivalent Exchange' system gave her a push to her tolerance against pain, because of continuously damage to her physical body gave her an extreme tolerance against even the worst pain one can ever feel to their structure, that she have went through all types of pain that one can list out, from wounds that gaps open to her flesh, bones that snaps apart from each and every structure that stands, sprains to her muscles, severed limbs, even combustion to specific areas of her body, and so forth. Resulting her high tolerance against it, she may not be able to simply shrug off the pain completely, coming back to sting her every second when she forces her body to move despite the damage she takes. Hiriko needed more tolerance against it, according to her, because of the equivalent exchange system applied against her and in the ability whenever she uses it, the more she could tolerate, the longer she can last in a fight and the more attacks she can unleash against her opponents.
☣High Coordination Level: While such capability of hers are related to knowledge, it was soon counted as a singular 'ability' rather than intelligence itself, a requirement that allows her to precisely coordinate the usage of her abilities. Since it was meant to distort reality, it became something that she requires it in coordinations when it came to summoning an attack, an object, just about anything that requires a construction of anything that she creates with her abilities, and to do so indirectly, she would need to coordinate the exact point where she would create, by pinpointing the coordinate x and y, including z which is a reference for time interval, also known as a 'time lag' between the moment of her words that spoke and the time before something is created upon the construction of a certain object. This becomes a convenience wihout needing to directly coordinating her attacks through her words, and these coordinations such as summoning an attack, an explosion or dropping something onto someone would become an indirect coordination that is done sub-conciously. Which means even wihout needing to say to drop something or blast onto someone with an attack, the reality would manifest on a place according to her will.
However, such capability is not considered 'perfect', that even with precise eye coordination abilities, measuring and calculating every possibilities between herself and the creation of an object, that there would always be a flaw behind these coordination skills that Hiriko possesses, and is that things may be miscalculated at times, which would end up in a failure, considering such ability is not something as perfect as it may sound like, it holds a high probability of succeeding its entire process less than a second, in exchange for an exceedingly fast process time, mistakes would caught inbetween and things would get a little wrong if miscalculated, because for her, there is no time for 'second calculation' as a confirmation, unless it is dire to do so in order to make sure her attacks land on the exact spot she desires to.
Natural Demon Racials/Abilities
☣Astitva Kī Baṛhata: Otherwise known as Edge of Existence, is the transportation method that Rakshasa use to travel between realms and/or layers of Hell. The Rakshasa’s body beings to illuminate in a dark red tone, before scrambling like a disrupted television, soon followed by their bodies disappear in a similar fashion. Like turning off a TV, their bodies collapse upwards from their feet and downwards from their head, meeting halfway in the middle and disappearing into an ‘external dimension’ which instantly allows them to pull the string on which dimension they wish to land in. This “Edge of Existence” is an instant teleportation, something that also works like a shinigami shunpo -- however considered to have twice the distance possible of being travelled. They can use this to cover great distances in milliseconds, or switch between Hell, Demon World, Soul Society or Earth Instantly. Their skill level in this determines how well they can succeed in this endeavour of travelling and how straining it is on their bodies.
☣Reality Morphing: On most of the layers of Hell, 1 through 665, the worlds are capable of being morphed to the Rakshasa's will. Once a Rakshasa has been assigned their own layer of Hell to stand as a guardian, they also inherit the power known as "reality morphing". This means that at any point in time, they are capable of shifting their respective layers of Hell to take on whatever appearance they desire. Whether this be a fiery furnace where everyone on their level of Hell burns and continuously crumbles, or a field of never ending hills and planes, filled with darkness. In the end, this is purely up to the individual demon. They are given free-reign over their layer of Hell, so if someone decided they wanted to fight a Rakshasa in their layer of Hell, they could find themselves in a constantly shifting landscape and even attacked by this shifting land. This also means they are connected to their layer of Hell, constantly being capable of keeping tabs on the happenings in it. To be noted that her ability should not be intermixed with the reality morphing of her layer.
☣The Art Of Demon Magic: What exactly IS the Arts of Demon Magic? In a sense, you COULD call it the Demon's Kidō, but you'd be wrong as well. Why? Well, Demon Magic actually works like real MAGIC is suppose to. Of course, Kidō like spells, summons and barriers can be created with Demon Magic. That's a given. However, it can be taken MUCH further then that application. For instance, an advanced user in Demon Magic could use this in order to gain Telekinesis on a more light level. Even combat standards, if he were to look at an attack and see it coming, the Telekinesis would kick in and attempt to change it course if enough was generated from The Demon to negate it. Other example would be gaining Gyrokinesis in some cases in order to actual make it seem like they are toying with gravity itself; which in fact they are. Within a contained area, this demon could remove the gravity of some things, make it heavier in other places or even apply it to more focused objects like their attacks to cause more impact force.
Not only that, but an even higher example of that is that some demon's with a Master in this would be able to even create things out of thin-air with no explanation what so ever. For example, a Master in The Art Of Demon magic could defy the laws of physic's by actually making energy cease in something and remove it. This may not seem like much, but it's actually an amazing feat as the laws of physic's clearly states energy can never be erased. However, in terms of combat, in order to do this they would need to overpower it. Another situation in which you could get a taste of Demon Magic would be them turning your energy attack into a batch of living snakes, them creating fields of anti-spiritual barriers around them or just making themselves plain invisible.
Now, performing magic is vastly possible thanks in part to connection most Demon's have to Za Koa. However, thanks to the varying seals scattered throughout a demon's body at birth by Touketsu's DNA, it is possible for them to even use the Magic without Za Koa's connection. You see, these seals are constantly gathering energy from their surroundings. From every attack, from every environment, from every power increase; these seals gather and store power for a demon to use. There is even an ascended state to unleash all of this collective energy, but that is not in this section. Instead, this is about how demon magic works in general. As stated previously, Demon's can perform magic with or without Za Koa. But, for some demon's, they are able to merge both of these together in order to double the strength of all of their spells or anything having to do with demon magic.
Despite all of this wonderful stuff, however, its biggest drawback in demon power is the power itself. What does this mean? Well, if you don't have resources, power, sacrifices or anything else to carry out your spell, it will in turn cause great damage to you for however much energy you tried to perform. An example of this would be a weakened demon who drained his resources trying to perform a large scale demon spell, only succeeding in heavily wounding himself along with producing a very weak version of whatever spell or magic technique he was trying to perform. Another drawback is that is can sometimes be countered with other types of magic such as Kidō, Chaos Energy or Sugiura Spells.
For Hiriko, just as the natural race of Demons can use the in depth and powerful magics of Demonic energy, the Rakshasa also have access to the said sources of magic. In this regard they also have a very similar skill-sheet for Demon Magic and Za Koa. Rakshasa have said to be peaking with Za Koa and are mostly naturals in the aspect of Demon Magics. One of the differences in their magic use is the potency whilst in Hell. Just as the aspects of Demon’s grow stronger once in Demon World, Rakshasa’s magic is FAR more powerful when fighting on their home turf of Hell. As they have access to Demon Magic and are quite adept in it, these Rakshasa also are quite advanced in the area of Death Energy and can combat people even in the Asthavon family in terms of Death Energy battles.
☣Za Koa's Influence: For example, an advanced Za Koa Skill user at two tier is capable of spreading this technique across an average battlefield in order to taint the surrounding vicinity around them in order to gain the upper hand in combat. These advantages include that all of their stats are typically doubled if the influence is not sealed away or fought with magic. So, going back to our two tier demon, he would be able to obtain a doubled increased in his abilities, powers, speed, endurance, reaction time, mental thinking, knowledge and so on and so forth. Users whom are Master in this skill can usually get triple benefits, and Grand Masters quadruple.
Along with those enhancement boosters, another advantage of Za Koa's Influence is that it can also alter the area around a demon in order to give them the upper hand. For example, our two tier demon will be able to dim the area around him into darkness in order to make himself even more formidable as demon's are naturally inclined to become more useful in the shadow's, being able to generate various toxins in the air in order to gradually wear someone down, create harsh acid rains, for the terrain they are on, turn an ocean-type battlefield into pure fire and things of this nature.
In Hiriko's case, the Za Koa's influence was used by Hiriko for a purpose to influence the 'reality' around her, which these Za Koa energy that she spreads and distributes across the area would manifest its form into 'nothing of everything', if she called it like that since in order to let her abilities manifest and affect her reality altogether, her Za Koa energy has to become a medium and intermix with the reality by becoming 'one', hence when a specific word is spoken, those energy would then re-manifest its existence into anything she desires, whether would it be a weapon, an energy or such, even a flesh and blood that heals one's wound. However, the side effects of this influence would either be the first type, where after the manifestation of something from nothing is done, the Za Koa energy within her body would become unstable for a temporary moment due to the 'changes of reality' which had created an unstable wavelength between herself, the reality and the inner Za Koa energy, depending on the scale and level of the distortion, the temporal unstability may inflict different severity of wounds against her, hence a wound.
☣Knowledge Of Environment: Another trait gained from spreading Za Koa's influence throughout any given area is that typically most demon's are given knowledge of their surrounding vicinity. For example, if our two tier demon had performed this within Karakura Central, it would be able to detect various hidden sources in the immediate fighting area such as hidden barriers, seals , spirit beings within the area and things of this nature. On a master level, this would allow some demon's to even detect various elements within in a being. This can be from a persons Zanpukto Spirit, to scanning JUST how much energy they have in total left in them, searching for any unusual traits about their body such as abnormal defense or offense and things of this nature that CAN be detected. This knowledge ability, however, only gives you the knowledge to beat something. Actually beating it, however, is another story.
☣Body Manipulation: This is a natural ability that all demon's possess if they wish to activate it or perform it. Most Demon's have full control over every aspect of his physical make-up, able to stretch themselves to obtain insane heights such as being thirty foot tall, being able to change their skin color, having the ability to shape-shift into different people that they are able to remember and, on much more powerful levels, being able to even detach, generate or fuse body parts together in order to increase odds of surviving. Though, this does not occur until at least one tier, and even then it's weak compared to the 0 tier version.
Additionally, it can even be used for offensive or defensive purposes. For example, a demon can use Body Manipulation in order to generate a layer of steel-like skin around their body in order to increase their defense and block out outside sources from entering their body by clogging every pore on it. Or, for another instance, they could use it on the offensive side by hurling body parts at their opponent that are extremely hot and turn into acid blood, using their increased height to smash down on most opponents and the same may even apply for some more powerful demon's attacks; or finally, in an avoidance way, more powerful demon's could even control their body in order to be broken down into a liquid, wind or fire type form in order to gain more ways to escape or evade attacks.
There are more ways to use this ability, but it's all up to the user of it to figure out.
☣Affinity For Hell: If a Demon ever gets the chance to foot into hell or has the skill level and power to summon it's presence on the battlefield, they can potentially increase their power by five times just by having it around them. In some instances, in fact, Demon's can even rise one tier level if enough consumes them for the duration of the thread they are in. This is due to the fact that there is a large amount of hellish energy within that place for Demon's to thrive on and it's filled with many hidden elements that were designed to overcharge a Demon in times of crisis. But, in addition to that, the presence of hell augments not only their power abilities but the inherent and magical abilities of said demon; giving improved versions of their abilities or completely new ones altogether. However, being the Guardian of Hell herself in Hiriko's own respective layer, she would have a natural affinity for Hell and considerably more powerful when she resides in Hell, making her abilities to distort reality less taxing and most likely, more powerful to a point where reversing time in her own layer's reality wihout affecting any parts of the Hell than her own layer would be most likely evidence during the time when Inami had came to visit her and invite Hiriko as a part of their 'people' and 'family'.
» Unique Abilities: ☣Reality Distortion: As the name of her ability suggests, it is also known as Reality Warping as well, and considering of a huge array of abilities, this ability is considered one of the most complex ability to use in terms of the realm of abilities that is available in the world. It was never an easy task when it comes to manipulating the reality itself to do her bidding, especially in an extent where it would be costly to do so to anyone that possesses this ability wihout attaining the levels of so-called 'Demi-God', as if it is used in a large-scale, it requires an enormous power to even manipulate an entire globe, and scaling further to manipulate the entire reality of the time and space itself. Even if she cannot reach some fundamental levels, she can still stretch her reality distortion level to an average scale, possibly enough to affect at least the continent of the entire Europe itself. However, even with such ability, she has her own limits of using it especially when it comes to changing the flow, the rules, the nature and the laws of reality with just a blink of an eye requires a huge amount of effort, work and calculation to make sure that the distortion of the reality would be not undergo any mishap.
In general, it allows her to manipulate reality as she wishes it to be, whether it would be raining actual cats and dogs, summoning a tornado or even making an army of her own, she could take large-scale attacks to a whole new level with mere words, and of course, the ability only activates when she speaks, using words itself, and she does have an almost perfect control over it as long as she maintains a stable emotion. However, this comes in a heavy price when it comes to using an ability in such a scale, bringing an effect to her atmosphere just from the echoes of her words, affecting reality and forces things that aren't there to exist, and much like as it is said, to Hiriko, even with a matter of drawbacks placed against her shoulders, it is almost as if the world is on the palm of her hand, even if her abilities are not the level of a so-called 'Demi-God', it was enough to make up to her own weakness and makes her a tough opponent to face in one of the layers in Hell itself, that even teaming up against her won't be an easy feat with how great her ability expands from each and every corner.
To how its merits goes, let's actually talk about the benefits it gives, the scale it can expand and be used upon. Allowing Hiriko to possess the ability to freely manipulate reality with her words, before we get to the point, it is to be noted that she cannot do a few things that are presently or evidently impossible unless she reaches the state of an 0-1, such as merely ending the world with a single word, creating wave after wave of supernovas, completely erasing an entire continent [ Theoretically possible wihout achieving 0-1 ], and any other feats that can be considered fairly ridiculous and heavily-scaled abilities that is considered powerful enough to wipe out mankind, however, things like temporarily creating a black hole is possible but not proven as of yet. While allowing Hiriko to do basic things with her ability such as constructing a weapon, food, basic energy blasts and even ceros by building its energy wavelengths similiar to it, while unable to complete mimic it, it allows her to make it look like a cero and holds a power akin to one, giving it as if it was a perfect copy of an actual cero. If looked closely enough, the arrangements that she made to construct it is slightly different from one, only to make it similiar to one, etc.
Not only just that, she could also strengthen or even weakening her victims with an echo of her words, and this was by 'transferring' a specific amount of her energy to the target's body to make both in a compatible shape and wavelength to strengthen them, or when it comes to weakening, she would transmit an impulse of energy that echoes from the vibrations of her words into their flesh and breaking down the energy until it becomes too small or too weak to be 'existent', thus weakening their state to however she likes. Although, Hiriko cannot completely annihilate the energy inside of their body or outright kill them by sucking them dry especially beings with bodies made purely out of energy, but when it comes to removing just about majority or half of it, it is possible. Though, it is not an easy feat for her to do so as she requires to get absolutely close to her targets, as close as before their bodies would have a direct contact against each other as the 'energy wavelength' she releases from her very words has a very short range. May it be a type of a divine energy, of her own kind or even an energy presumed to be 'unknown', as long as it can be broken down, it takes at least 2 posts before it takes a complete effect. The 'breakdown' of energy can be stopped if they have a fairly complex ability that allows them to build a tough structure to the surface of their skin or within their internal structure to prevent the ability from affecting them. However, in the moments of breaking down, if they find a way to harden their energy, or in an easiest way to do so, by 'fighting' against the 'energy' she inputted into their body with a greater power, since it requires a type of 'energy' to affect her victims, this method is possible as well.
Her 'method' of distorting reality is fairly complex in its own way, but in some sense, complex enough to become something that cannot be copied so easily by a blink of an eye, since it require a high sort of power to be able to temporarily bend the laws of nature around her, whether would it be physics or chemical, even biology, if given an enough time for calculations, it would much be like as if the world is on the palm of her hands. Even if her ability is nowhere compareable to the likes of Deveta or Mana, it was considered an ability powerful enough for her to keep guard on her assigned layer and keep intruders on their toes busy. Even so, there is a type of 'process' the undergoes under an intense speed, that she requires an utmost intelligence and powerful calculative abilities to allow her to influence the world around her as she wishes through the sounds of her voice that would echo and eventually, torturing her opponents where they wished that they have never met her as an enemy, but an ally.
The first process or known as the 'Main Process', as simple as it sounds, it is fairly complex in its own way. In general, it is a process where she would begin to calculate her surroundings, every atom of it, even molecules, from temperatures and humidity to intensity of light, wind's speed, earth's current rotational speed and such, anything that can be taken into account within 5 miles radius, even objects as well like vehicles and as small as dusts and fossils of dead plants. This contains all important information that allows her to execute her commands and her ability to take effect against the reality around her, whether it would be temporary or permanent effect, it would all depend on her. Considered one of the most important mechanics to allow her ability to function, though theoretically have no weaknesses to prevent the main process to go through, as even if she is locked in a closed space with literally nothing inside, as long as its 'existence' is counted, it would be something that she could still manipulate per her distortion ability. However, this theory is still proven unknown as of yet. Otherwise, if one can find a way, it is still something can be stopped if tried such as interrupting her calculations-wise but Hiriko can still do so while moving but takes longer than staying stationary, as it would move the 'radius' from a position to another which makes it longer, and the more she moves away from the position she began calculating, the longer she has to keep calculating her surroundings until she is driven out of the initial 5 mile radius to 'restart' her calculations again. While staying stationary takes no longer than a few seconds, a very short time interval to interrupt her in taking her calculations around her, if Hiriko moves around occassionally, it would take a post or above the more she moves from her initial position.
The second process, also known as the 'Center Phase', and is an optional process to go through, only with effects that it'll increase the risks of failure and depending on what attack she's executing, the side effects may vary in inflicting damage against her physical structure or the consumption in her Za Koa energy. This center phase does not do much, other than filtering. This process takes up extra time, which would lead a short time interval for her enemies and prevents her from executing consecutive attacks, which means she can only use her Reality Distortion capability for only once or twice if this process is gone through, which greatly limits her maneuvering abilities as well in combat, considering how limit of an attack she can create, however, despite such weakness, she could unleash a large-scale attack with a very high chance of succession as well although the 'damage' to Hiriko is pretty high when such attacks are used. In general, the filtering process would re-calculate every information it receives, filtering out any possible mistakes in calculations, remove any unrelated/useless equations and etc. That's the general use of it, though even if it did went through the center process, it would only increase the chances of successful execution of her attacks, not a 100% type of filtering.
The final phase would be the execution of her abilities. Generally, in order to induce effects to the reality around her, she would require a type of power that could allow her to produce a distortion effect, very much like changing the properties of atoms, the rearrangement of space-time, and etc. Such tasks are fairly complex when it comes to the final phase as it requires a complete changes to her surroundings. Her words would affect what's around her, and to affect it, the moment she speaks, her voice creates a unique frequency that vibrates the strings of reality, its atoms, the light, the perception of the world, the fabrics of space-time would throughoutly affected by a single word that she says, creating a distortion effect which according to the frequency of her words, these frequencies can bend and manifest itself into the world of reality, hence the 'distortion'. That is only a way she can describe how it works, but in general, the actual process is still unknown for her. However, the way it consumes her Za Koa energy is odd and mysterious, requiring more research on her own, her Za Koa energy is evenly distributed to all direction when she uses her Reality Distortion ability, and these distributions are rather unique of how it reacts and responds to the atmosphere and shaping into 'nothing', before bending itself to become 'something'. Until now, she cannot figure it out how it truly works but has received a hint of how the actual process works.
There are a huge variety of what her ability can do, from manipulating all types of energy, organic or inorganic energy, while it is virtually impossible to reverse time unless it is within her domain, which is her Hell's Layer, this can be achieved with dire consequences in the reversal of time. It cannot go back a single day or over 6 hours ago, as she can only reverse as far as 10 to 30 minutes ago. Be noted that the time reversal only affects her layer in Hell, as this is unusable anywhere but her own layer. Otherwise, creating weapons, energy, anything that can be distorted by reality and given an existence, giving her a large variety of weapons to use. However, the only weakness to this ability is that she cannot heal herself, replenish her own energy, empower her tier, her skill sheets such as strength, durability and speed, and she cannot use it in a large-scale nor can she simply make a city dissapear. The bigger the scale and area of effect she desires to do, the longer it would take for it to take a full effect and it would increase the amount of consequences she would be facing, enabling her to have a default area of effect within ten kilometers from her position wherever she goes.
Because of the potential of how the ability works in general, the Equal Exchange system soon became one of the two defaults of how this ability is used fairly in combat and even social life. There is two types of equal exchange system, first would be the infliction of wound or the consumage of her Za Koa energy depending how powerful, how large, how complex and etc the ability is used on, such as creating an utterly complex weapon that can do more than a hundred tasks, or a building with thousands of mechanisms, an energy blast capable of decimating a city or etc, the complexity and the firepower of these abilities judges the consequences she may receive, as little as making a cero-tier blasts could leave a scratch on her cheek, and making a mountain dissapear would make her back gush out with blood, that is the first equal exchange system it uses. In general, Hiriko would receive various types of wound, from a minor wound to a life-threatening infliction, it would all depend how she utilizes her abilities, as said, the scale, firepower, range, size, mass, volume, all of that would be calculated and create a conclusion to an infliction of wound, but if it is used socially or for minor combats, the first default system would not be required, instead, the second one comes by as a 'backup' or a 'reserve'. Before going to the second type, to be noted that the first type of the system is a Wound Infliction type where she would receive a wound, depending how powerful it is used, the level or severity of that wound may vary.
The second type is the Energy Consumption type. Much safer and does not require any infliction of wound, and mostly used socially and in minor combat since it would be worth risking her body just to fight her enemies that are as simple as she may find in them. While it isn't used much, it is considered much safer than the first type as it consumes her Za Koa energy, however, after she uses her ability, the consumption would be 2 to 3 times the actual amount, since she would need to distribute her Za Koa energy to her surroundings in order to manifest nothing into anything in the world of reality, and altogether using her Za Koa energy as a type of fuel to allow her abilities to take effect, hence why it would be much more consuming than usual since her Za Koa energy is both used as a fuel and a distribution of energy in order to allow anything to manifest into reality, whether it would be the manifestation of energy, weapon, even diseases would work as well, or particles, and would become a distortion to the reality. The more powerful of an ability she uses, the more consuming it becomes, but simple things such as creating a minor spark or anything small like a spoon, a glass of wine and such would consume pretty much little-to-nothing. This is why this type of system is used socially, since if the first type is used socially, even distorting the reality just to create a spoon or giving her the temporary capability to fly would leave a scratch on her or even splitting a wound on her arm may be possible. And such, why the second system was created by herself in order to make it more convenient.
THE DAGI TVACA (Dāgī Tvacā)
» Dāgī Tvacā Name: The Echo
» Dāgī Tvacā Appearance: Rather different from its name, the appearance where her Dagi Tvaca resides is not on her skin, but on her eyes. It takes an appearance of a simple pair of glowing red eyes, and a fire-like effect in a thin form and stretches a few centimeters away from her eyes when she moves or even when she is idling on her position. Particularly visible in the dark, while in the day, it is barely even visible since its glows weakly, but even a weak glow like that, cannot be easily underestimated.
» Dāgī Tvacā Release Appearance: As stated, her eyes would take an appearance of a pair of glowing red eyes that creates a fire-like effect in a thin form when she moves, capable of stretching as far as a few centimeters long before it dissipates whether if she is idling or moving around. These glowing red eyes has not much of a function itself, but when viewed internally, these eyes are an 'adrenaline', capable of radiating a wave-type energy instead of energy particles that spreads throughout her internals and create an effect which has an energy that could excite her body, from heartbeat, hormones, muscles, thought process, reaction time, strength, and simply boosts her both physically and mentally as long as the Dagi Tvaca is active, and these boosts aren't small boosts. These wave-type adrenalines has a special property which radiates a hellish-like properties, and due to her connection with Inami Asthavon which further distributes a part of her energy and results a terrifying boost in her physical and mental capabilities.
» Dāgī Tvacā Powers:
☣Fused Energy: At this point, when Dagi Tvaca is activated in her layer of Hell, things would get a little more escalated. Once activated, her body would create a fused energy between her own and Inami's, though such mixture can be considered dangerous due to the incompatibility between the two, it also becomes the reason why unlike most, if not, all Rakshasas, her Dagi Tvaca is the only one that has a set time limit when activated due to the amount of power it is capable of boosting Hiriko with, physically, mentally and spiritually, and of course, not a small boost as well. While lasting for 3 posts, its time was made up with its terrifying power and feats that can be achieved with such energy used by Hiriko. As this fused energy plays a large role in many aspects of her Dagi Tvaca and the capability of her Reality Distortion abilities because of how much influence it can expand and create to the world around her, while being limited to Hell itself, that alone can make sure her layer becomes the biggest mess she has ever seen. This case, of course, is her spiritual boost since it has her energy and Inami's intermixed, i would be enough to be felt from miles and layers away when the ability is activated.
☣Improved Speed: The only physical boost she has received, wihout too much to describe, it temporarily increases her speed by one rank as long as her Tainted Skin lasts, while Master is not applicable to be raised into Grand Master, nor was Grand Master can be increased further, however, its effects can allow her to move twice the speed of those actual rank. It has a limit of its own as well, that when she moves at speed beyond of her default level, it could easily put a huge strain to her muscles since her body is not used to high levels of fatigue that involves physical combat or high level of movements which would be her Hell Beast's speciality, even using it once to run as fast as a master user or advanced speed user, it would be enough to make her muscles feel numb due to her inability to handle stress to her physical state.
☣Improved Calculation Abilities: While her intellectual ability is unrequired for an improvement, her calculation prowess became part of her mental boost, which means at this point, the center phase of her Reality Distortion where it requires filtration of information would not be required anymore, since her calculations would become more precise, faster and even allowing her to create formulas of her own which would make the distortion further complex to counterattack by another force. While she can endure extreme levels of mental stress because of the constant calculation done by her brain for hundreds of years, going beyond her default abilities in calculation prowess would increase the amount of strain done and using complex and powerful abilities in distorting her reality can leave quite a dire effect to her emotional and mental state. Otherwise, this could also improve her reality distortion abilities at a much stronger level, to a point where time reversal in her own layer becomes one of her strongest possible ability in the arsenal when the Dagi Tvaca is activated. Consequences though, are rather life-threatening.
☣Extreme Influence: Now with Inami's spiritual energy intermixed with her own's Za Koa energy, her ability to influence the reality around her would become bigger as well as a stronger at the same time. The expansion of her influence in her layer of hell is more than just a show, since together with the energy expansion with the fused energy between Inami and her own's, this mixed energy had greatly expanded her arsenal, area of influence and her capability to distort reality so much that literally every inch of her layer, wihout the usage of reality warping would already become her domain, or just about anywhere in Hell would literally become one of the toughest battlefield one has to face considering the amount of influence she can create wherever she is. The system, however, still remains unchanged even with her Dagi Tvaca activated using the reality distortion ability, not to mention that the side effects of these systems is much worse than usual not just because of her ability only, but the usage of her energy which had Inami's that caused instability made the wound infliction even worse. However, the merit is that her abilities are much more potent, higher-scaled and could allow her to achieve the impossible, so powerful that her words were enough to defy physics and logic alone, breaking the boundaries of what her abilities could do. The fact that the consequences are much worse in Hiriko's case, but the amount of boost she gains in both influence and power are worth the risk.
» Titles: The Masked Man, more of a title given by many than for himself, all due to his mysterious personality and appearance. His tendency of wearing a mask, and even had spares if it is smashed apart in order to conceal away his actual appearance is something that makes everyone truly curious what he truly looks like in person. It is not because he has a great power or strength, but it is under a reason that nobody really knows who he really is, how he thinks, acts or even exists, a man shrouded with mysterious and unknowns, hence the Masked Man title was given to him.
»Age: Unknown but presumably 300 years old if dated back when Hiriko met Kagetane. Real age still stays unknown but probably much older than her considering of his 30s or 40s appearance of age.
» Gender: Obviously a male considering of his build.
» Race: Naraka Janavara (Hell Beast)
» Affliation/Rank: Unlike Hiriko, guarding the 201st layer is not of a top priority, but can be considered as something of the secondary priority in the protection of the layer. Acting very much like a father-figure for Hiriko, his top priority that overrules everything else is the safety and the protection of Hiriko, that before she was allowed to be harmed further, he would most likely intervene because of such facts. Otherwise, he is not affliated with anyone else than Hiriko herself, while when it comes to Inami, they are both neutral and enemies at the same time. Willing to help Inami out, but under his own conditions.
» Written Appearance: Kagetane is a fairly tall, much of a young man, judging from his hair, he would most likely under his 30s or 40s though in an average build when his figure was shown. He was rather pale but a lean man, with slicked-back, grey hair behind the mask of his, which something of his own trademark he has been wearing for quite some time, and rather mysterious in the mask.
The white mask that covers his entire image. The mask itself is simply design with a mischievous smirk running from its cheekbones down to, slightly above, the jawline and arching back up to his opposite cheekbone. Granting him visibility are two crescent-shaped spots flowing downwards, forming a wicked portrayal along with the mouth piece, of course, the only available part of his face was only a portion of his jawline exposed from the mask, not entirely, in some sense. While on his upper body where he dons his clothes, is completely covered by a connected jacket with three buttons on either side. The jacket's collars are flipped, giving view to a plant-like design on the inside and several diagonal lines on the higher areas. The jacket's end spots a split cape elongating to his feet. Underneath the jacket, Kagetane dons a white shirt with many buttons and a small collar, as well as a small bow-tie around his neck. His lower regions are covered by a pair of pants spotting multiple lines jutting downwards. Circling around his thighs are two straps, they seem to have a pair of weapons, while still unknown what's under it, it has a visible spare of his mask if it was ever broken to pieces. Unsure why he covers his hands with white gloves as well, but if felt directly, there would be something cold, and rough as if there was a metal structure behind the gloves, presumably having metallic hands, what really makes him look more intimidating is the magician's hat that he wears above his head, despite wearing it most of the time, there are times where he takes it as well. It being a magician's hat, it does not do much and has nothing inside of the hat at all, it was a matter of figure and style, to the man.
☣Mysterious: The best way to describe Kagetane is only one term, 'mysterious'. Unlike Hiriko, he is a man shrouded with infinite mysteries, questions that pops everywhere and only the man himself can answer them. Even in Hiriko's case, she cannot understand what he is thinking, neither do anybody do even if they are masters in lie detection and etc, whether he is telling the truth or not, the only thing that they can do is to 'suspect' him, unabling them from pushing the blame to him, point their fingers or even sabotage him, since in the first place, because of his mysteriousness that covers his entire figure, it becomes the 'reason' why nobody knows his entire persona, background, to a point where even if they check on a computer, unless they are an omnipotent or omniscience people, attaining information about him from tip to toe are both physically and digitally impossible.
Because of his mysteriousness, it makes him a rather formidable liar that is just virtually impossible to almost.. 'detect', if one wants to understand it in general. Again, he always faces things positively and never seem to tremble in fear to anyone that is obviously far stronger than him both physically and spiritually, and defines them as 'nothing more than a tank filled with energy'. Deception has almost became apart of his speciality, very much like Hiriko with their relationship as father and daughter, they share similiar traits and personality, but different backgrounds and the way they treat their victims, not to mention, the mask he wears makes an addition to his unknown life, because even for Hiriko, nobody has ever seen his face and remarks his appearance as something that may leave a scar to anyone's soul, no matter who they are.
☣Fatherly: While this is very much unlikely of him, however, what makes things rather 'weird', from the enemy's perspective, that he plays a role of a rather protective father for Hiriko, and raised her as his own, taught her to use her abilities and grow in Hell before the Gates of Hell opened up for freedom. As evidenced during his meeting with Inami Asthavon, any negotiations, contracts, deals or even alliances would require his 'permission' as her father and a guardian to allow it to take a full effect of what they want, and that was to test their strength and full capacity in their worth to make sure that helping them gives them the expected merits. He may be a neutral being himself but if it involves either of them, then he would need to know whether it is beneficial for them or not, since he wouldn't want him or his daughter to help for nothing more than a pea.
☣Sociable: Well, Kagetane is not too bad of a guy, and considered to be a part of a sociable people despite his origins as a Hell Beast. He doesn't seem to get uncomfortable with anyone at all, even to his enemies whether they are powerful or not, even if they have great influence over the world, it doesn't seem to really stop him from being apart of the social circle with anyone. While some people may depict him as a fearless man, but soon, they would realise that he isn't fearless, but rather, he discarded that emotion and replace it with the emotion of being socially active. Unless it doesn't require him to fight, then he would talk his way through, coming up with many combinations of negotiations, benefits, that even someone as dense as they can be would understand every word he says. In general, rather than making enemies, he prefers to gain allies to benefit both himself and those he had ties with socially.
☣Neutral: Simply put, Kagetane is not of any side and completely neutral to anyone and everyone around him. Of course, he is willing to help out anyone, protags or antags, even rogues, in an exception that such cases would either result in a fight to test their worth and strength to make sure that they have the ability to grant what's promised, go through negotiations to meet each other's requirements equally or they would need to exchange something equally to Kagetane, depending on the request, the exchange may vary, which means the bigger the task, then the exchange would be more than just dumping a pile of diamonds on him, especially life-threatening types that would require their assistance. So, before asking for either his help or Hiriko's, consider what your capabilites or what you have, because things might get a little rough at this point the moment you approach him.
☣Domination: World Domination? Not quite. If you would describe it, aside from his sociable personality, Kagetane is a type who slowly and quietly dominates over others, as long as the situation is analyzed and gained information about them, then things would get easier for him. He may not seem like the person for the task, but he takes advantage of one's perspective, letting them suspect him as much as they want and miss out all the important points that leaves them unguarded to his eyes. The mysterious aura that covers his persona is what makes him formidable in these areas, no matter how powerful they are, even if their power soars over his own, there is no one that has absolute resistance to everything and have no weakness at all. To make his domination easier against his victims, his mind slowly became twisted and thirsty for more power, while he doesn't show it, his mind does, the 'mind' behind the mask that always keep him in the shadows.
» Unique Spiritual Power: Its hard to call it 'Unique' and 'Normal' at the same time. Given that his spiritual power is just about half to a quarter of Hiriko's spiritual energy. Inherited merely one of the abilities concerning the distortion of reality, that his is a Time Distortion or Manipulation itself, his spiritual energy, or for short, Za Koa energy is slightly 'unique' to himself and him only, something that is required in order for him to 'influence' the time around him, just like Hiriko's ability. It is not powerful nor weak, but its overall capacity is unnaturally large enough for him to use his abilities continuously wihout much of a problem for quite awhile. However, Kagetane seems to be fairly skilled in controlling his own spiritual power from leaking, as proven during his conversation in Hell with Inami, that he could suppress his own spiritual power to a point where he could slip away the likes of Inami's detection despite her mastery over Za Koa manipulation. But, it doesn't 'completely' conceal his presence away, that with enough focus at their maximum level, it is possible to spot his spiritual energy from where he is hiding himself. This 'trick' of his is not perfect to hide his entire presence away from one's detection, but enough to make it hard to even try and find him if they rely on detecting spiritual energies.
In terms of using his abilities through the use of Za Koa energy, it is similar to Hiriko's method in influencing the surroundings around him and create a distortion or manipulation effect, though he has two methods of his own to create an 'influence' to the world around him and for him to manipulate time for every ounce of his own Za Koa energy. Snapping his fingers can create an 'influence' to his time, and unlike his second method, this is a more powerful and more accurate influence instead of distributing his energy to all direction, as this method can allow him to automatically coordinate his offensive or defensive attacks when using his Counter Stop ability, allowing him to have a more stable control over his powers which he could perform his tasks much faster than usual, and of course, unlike his default usage, this does not require his sight at all.
The second method is obvious in using his eyes, where everything in his line of sight will be constantly influenced by his Za Koa energy, if to clearly describe it, his Za Koa energy would continuously 'pour' out from his eyes to create a constant effect of influence, and anything that gets into his sight, as long as it is possible to react against depending on his capability in reaction time, all he requires was coordination and calculations for him to affect anything within his sight, in exception for living beings other than himself. This is the second method of his Za Koa influence. Unlike the first method, this requires the constant use of spiritual energy the moment it activates. However, this is much more effective than the first method since he can perform multiple tasks at once as long as it is within his line of sight or simply put, the area where his eyes can see and decipher its existence, but less stable in a way.
» Odd Pain Endurance: While Kagetane is not physically powerful, he was seemingly 'trained' to be durable himself to take hits. He could endure countless feats of damages, however, in a fairly odd way where it seems like he is just about a being that cannot be killed. He could feel pain when enough damage is dealt against him, but the way he endures them gives a chill to your spine. His endurance against pain is to a point where, as proven during his fight against Inami, could as far as take a shockwave directly to the head and have his neck twisted backwards in 180 degrees, and so far, to even twist his head back wihout any complains than bleeding directly. However, it doesn't mean that he can absolutely shrug off such a pain as well. It is theorized that he has lost his sense of pain, but less likely since he did once state that he could feel pain but rather, take it as a type of stimulation of sorts in order to 'contain' and shrug off the pain like a painkiller, but there are times where the pain can be so rough that he cannot contain it and in very rarely, ever to actually whine or even, scream over his own pain when it becomes too much. He is not an absolute emotionless person who has no ability to feel pain, but rather, he does not express it and seems to have the ability to control himself and endure against even the mightiest hit, but that's just something to say about, as no one really knows the limits of his endurance, but of course, there is always a 'limit' to it.
» High Intellect & Calculation Prowess: While not as great as Hiriko, but enough to make up for his ability to be used at its maximum potential and control, whilst not an absolute as well, it is both a 'requirement' and an 'ability' for him to use in some cases, since manipulating time requires an extreme level of calculative prowess, he excelled in the area of calculations and mathematics in order to use his Counter Stop ability effectively, and have a considerably level of intelligence where himself was enough to understand and could even throughoutly describe the concept of 'time' to a point where he could even indirectly 'interact' with it as if it is an individual to him. However, he is not considered as 'intellectual' as Hiriko herself, since he only understands what requires for his own ability, and if compared to an average spiritual being, he has a basic to adept level of 'normal' intellect, however, when it comes to Za Koa energy, it becomes an important role for him to excel at since his spiritual power is an 'influence' for his ability to work, hence only intelligent in areas where is needed for him to effectively use his ability, while retaining basic intelligence on everything else such as his understanding of technology, since that his time manipulation abilities does not involve technologies, showing a cellphone to him would be like a whole new thing to him. Otherwise, he isn't as intelligent as he seems to be.
» Counter Stop/Time Manipulation: Generally, Kagetane's power, Time Manipulation, or namely Counter Stop as its nickname, in relevant to hiriko's ability, Kagetane's ability works in a fundamentally different way. While hiriko's is the manipulation of reality, Kagatane's the other side of the coin. He manipulates the direct flow of time to a degree. Meaning while he doesn't have the ability to completely control time, in direct result of massive amounts of energy drain he becomes enabled to select and change the time of certain attacks a few times or so every post. I.E he is enabled to if a punch was coming to ONLY after contact in return for feeling the damage and pain of the attack, speed or throw the attack off in its time, causing an inbalance which will not 'negate' the attack, but instead distort the time of the attack so it will slightly miss, or cancel out [ In rare cases ] all together. In essencing, meaning that in general practice of Kagetane's power in combat works on the time of attacks, execution of the attacks, spiritual abilities. All of these things are manipulated in the confines of a direct space that he super-saturates with his influence. Given that Kagetane also was affected by Inami Asthavon's energy, transferring a connection to the maiden's Zao Koa skill, something that the demoness has a Grand Master in.
Because of this it ultimately led to the being of kagetane's original time alteration to become interchangable with the influence of zao-ka's Manipulation of space. Using this to create a domain in which it super-focuses the latent potentional and capability of the time alteration, allowing the range of the ability which was hard to speculate at first to be for-shortened in exchange for superior control, superior clarity, and superior power. In example, Kagetane's Time Manipulation has the capability now of interchanging sequences within time, thanks to him inheriting the capabilities of a Grand Master Za Koa manipulation skill, however, not entirely as he only have no more than a small portion of being influenced by Inami's 'energy'. Using this in conjunction with his time manipulation? It became possible to pinpoint feats such as manipulating the time in direct confliction with his internal tempo, which is explained below.
The first one would be Internal Time, which is to manipulate the time outside his body, Kagetane has used his time manipulation powers to self-contain his own bodies time, severing it from the free flow of time around him. Actually? In this way it makes sense how he is able to control the time around him, as by severing himself from the normal track of time, but using his manipulation powers to control the free current of time around him, he makes it possible for him to directly control the flow of time in a direct radius around him. That is because his own internal time and the external time around him is different in a way of describing as 'different dimensions', he is able to control the external time, speeding, or distorting it by a slight margin around his own internal time. This effect makes it so that when he is controlling time, because of the intense calculation and small error margin acceptable for his power? So that he doesn't feel the super-lative strain of and ontop of that, having to focus on protecting himself from his own time manipulation.
As such this also means that time distortion also doesn't work on the being known as kagetane, being his internal time is isolated from the flow of time around him, making him not precisely 'out' of the loop of time, but more making him a 'constant' in some way in the constant flux and flow of time itself. As while time around him continues to flow, Kagetane himself as a Hell Beast can use time manipulation to distortion in a certain method due to the computative force needing a ocular base to format and generate the foundation on.
Another one would be the Ocular Time, the interaction that Kagetane retains with time, is on a visual basis outside of direct influence with his body or Bodily contact. Kind of like ley-lines as well as coded script being broken down to become comprehensible in the hellbeasts mind, Time is reduced to numerical data allowing him to kind of like with a computer program, chance the variables in the constant data. I.E he could change a fact in the data, which would cause a transferrence in the pace of the objects time, or possibly do something like DDOS the object causing time to crash. Which would be why he can for short periods of time outright stop the time of something Indirectly influenced by another character. But not the character itself. I.E using this method kagetane can affect the time of attacks in his line of sight, but not the person themselves. Because of the general fact that altering someone elses time is alot harder then just off-setting the time of attacks which are being thrown at him.
Of course, though the use of time and manipulation is heavily intergraded into kagetane's body and power set, it causes his visual prowess to be essentially his only real power. As the demands of ocular sequencing and even mental calculation for time, are absolutely nothing short of immense. There would be nothing left in the rest of the brain in terms of processing and comprehension room. This is why kagetane is unable to use real legitimate forms of magic, power, abilities or energies which are not relevant to his time manipulation capabilities. In this way, Kagetane is the definition of a broad 1-trick pony. Having only one manipulative ability and one only, only in this case, the Ocular manipulative ability is the control and distortion of time based on what he can visually see in the line of sight he retains, or through direct bodily contact or within the slight radius which extends around 1 inch from his skin which is the axis in which he invokes his time manipulation.
Adding on to the ocular manipulation of time though, the interruption or breaking of his line of sight will negate the manipulation of time of an object which is say behind that visual obstruction. Given this is equivalent to taking the process of gathering the visual code of time so to speak, and disjointing it causing the script to only be half completed for the object in question. In contrast, making it so that he would be unable to further manipulate the time of the object, or if he had already partially manipulated the time he couldn't alter it any further, due to the interruption of his line of sight making it so he is unable to change it because he doesn't have a ocular veiw of the variables that he would be changing in the first place. Which finally is one of the biggest weaknesses to Kagetane's manipulative prowess, he is unable to primarily control things he can't see unless they come within that radius of his. So if you managed to blind the hell beast he would be completely cut off from the majority of his time manipulation's prowess, as only a small portion of his Counter Stop abilities would only affect the time around him through the use of direct contact, the rest of it is his pure untamed and potent ocular time sequencing technique.
Meaning of course that he has some fairly blatant weaknesses ,such as blinding the hellbeast would until his eyes healed completely shut down his powers because he would lack the ability to see what he was doing, just how a hacker can't hack a system if he can't see it. The hell beast can't manipulate or change something unless he can visually discern the variables of which he is changing to cause the direct distortion of the directed objects time in the first place. All in all this is primarily why his ocular time is something which is both very strong, and also his greatest weakness.
Ocular Time Types had different 'sequence', or to simply put, a 'mode' in usage of his abilities, where Kagetane's time is broken up into three sub-types, each of which are concerning a different functionality of his overall 'Visual Type' manipulation. Being as with any power of this magnitude, it requires a substructuring so that the power doesn't overwhelm the practitioner. In this case, Kagetane has kept it simple and much easier to switch inbetween use after use in his liking, subsedizing his main ability into the three types which are 'Offense, Spatial and Variable', which will be explained in depth.
First off is the Offense Time Visualization, and it is, of course, as the name of the sub-category says it, 'Offensive', meaning that the visualization and manipulation of time which is directly involved with attacking, or causing damage. Such as a cero being fired within Kagetane's line of sight, would fall into this sub-category of visual time manipulation. Now, if that Cero was heading towards kagetane, he would be able to using this 'sub-category' to manipulate the time of the object to a marginal point. Such as to say that he could actually by moving his eyes, change the direction of the flow of time. In doing so it would allow the trajectory to be indirectly shifted, offsetting the attack. Or it would also be possible , to do something like remove a portion of the attacks time. An example of this could be like removing the portion of time in which the attack contacts kagetane, and instead copying a previous time sequence, so it would continue through him, as if almost like he was a ghost. This, however, is how Offense Time Visualization works, by working in this sub category of Kagetane's ability to control time becomes hyper-focused. Instead of working on many things, it becomes only able to work on 'offense'. However, in result of that focusing, he becomes able to further control time in that 'specified' category.
In such manner, Kagetane has the ability to focus his time sequencing. Either leaving it broad, or choosing to directly infer his power in a more specialized area. This ability means that he would become even more so of a glass cannon, but in bonus to this, it means in the particular field of focusing? It will result in a dramatic increase in accuracy and comprehensive control. As Kagetane, will be in this way focusing on the field of choice much more closely. When compared to his general manipulation of course.
When it comes to the Spatial Time Visualization, the sub-category that is mostly influenced by the Inami's Za Koa information on spatial distortion. In Kagetane's case, if he focuses on this sub-category enables him to greatly affect the visual flow of time as he see's it; when in relation to the environment around him. Consider it like how a Za Koa user, is able to control the field of battle. The concept, of course is roughly the same in end result, however? Instead, of course, manipulating the field of battle, it manipulates the flow of the environment's time, the 'time' that surrounds him in the vicnicity of his ability. Allowing for the ability to move from one point to another, at relatively high speed. Given to Kagetane in using this method, instead of focusing on attacking, defending and etc? He would merely focus on another point of an area instead on the environment or what he is standing on. This means, granted that he wouldn't be able to use his time manipulation to protect himself, however, he would be able to move quickly by inserting his "time". By inserting of course, meaning introducing his time within another spot on the field of battle. In doing so, It allows him to quickly move from one place to another, very much like a teleportation but in a less potent state. However, fairly limited to a point where it restricts him from using other abilities as per say that he is only able to focus on one or more things depending how much he could handle, using the sub-category in this area limits him from executing other feats of abilities than physical combat itself.
Considering of the above, there is a sub-cateogry that is considered as his 'normal way' of using his abilities, namely Variable Time Visualization, pretty much simply put that of being his 'usual' way of using his ability. Pretty much something that he regulates in his daily life, wihout too focused into one thing per to say that in a combat, his body became pretty much a 'default' usage of his Counter Stop ability, using direct contacts to deal with his opponents ever so casually, and keeping things in check as long as it is within his line of sight. Of course, what became a habit in using his ability was the snapping of his fingers that creates a weak distribution of 'influence' of Za Koa around him and create a distortion effect. Although a habit that always occurs, but it is a so-called 'ability' of his to create effects to the time around him, and this applies to the entirety of his Counter Stop ability, even the categories itself uses the method of snapping his fingers in order to properly 'regulate' the flow of his abilities and becoming the balance of his own powers if his power were to go out of control. Most likely to say that snapping his fingers are much like his 'personal coordinator', which coordinates his usage of abilities and affecting the world around him via time.

✧MOVING THIS INTO ADOPTION NOW✦
Upon request, I'm going to go ahead and move this character in adoption. The reason for this is that it would be a shame for it to go to waste and I'll give someone the chance to pick it up. However, they must make an RP sample and I will review it when that time comes.
