- Name: Evony Adolpha Rittmeister
-Meaning: Noble Archer She-Wolf, Cavalry Commander
- Titles: The Omega, Königin (Queen), the Bestellen (Commander).
- Gender: Female
- Age: 474
- Birthday: 27 May 1941 or 05/27/1941
- Bloodline: Pure Quincy.
- Affiliation/Rank: The Eldrazi Nation, Nameless
- Appearance Age: 18-19
- Appearance Description:
- Appearance Picture:
As a person, Evony's key way of conducting battle is through calculation. She desires victory over the enemies of Eldrazi over all else, and as a result her temperament can be offensive or defensive. Whichever frame of mind that she is in, her mind is always running in the paths of how to best confirm victory and the preservation of the Eldrazi. Strategies which could be considered ludicrous by others are simply what she works with if she has no other choice. She rarely allows for emotions to enter into her decision-making as a leader, and as a result she could be seen as cold or heartless when looking only at her battle record. However, that is only in the actual decisions that she makes.
Her loyalty is unquestionable. She will never abandon Eldrazi or Nozomi, wanting to stand behind them no matter what should happen. If it comes to it, she would be willing to give her life in order for its ocntinuation, but she also knows that that would also be against Nozomi's wishes. Eldrazi's enemies are her enemies; their friends are her friends. Her loyalty could be considered blind, but that is simply the level to which she trusts their leader.
Her disposition is extraordinarily militant. As a result, when she isn't working she can be found to be rather different then when she is in the field, due to the amount of strain caused by constantly being in this mindset while fulfilling her job. She does not tolerate sloppiness or laziness, and her reprimands can be extremely harsh, although she would never punish someone to the point where it would cause eternal damage or death. This militant personality also means that she is unwilling to make sacrifices unless she approves of them.
As a Commander, Evony's grip is absolute. Her orders are absolute, and the chain of command, from her point of view, cannot be questioned. The idea of mutiny does not appear within her mind, and desertion is a word for 'losers'. If she declares to her troops that they will obtain victory, she will only say it if she believes it. This meticulous observation of the current surroundings of herself and her troops are what make her presence to strong. Indeed, her very 'presence' can be considered as being too overbearing at times, and there is nothing that she enjoys better than capturing and taunting powerful enemies.
However, she is also very stubborn. She will always follow her orders to the very letter, no matter how difficult they are to complete or what damage could be done in fulfilling them. This also means that she is very difficult to change the viewpoint of; first impressions are everything to her. As a result, once she has labeled someone a fool within her mind, they are always a fool, and once she has seen someone's valor or strength, she will remember that as their true value.
When facing opponents or punishing others, her ruthlessness borders on cruelty. Her ability to experience empathy is not high while she is 'on duty', and therefore her instincts towards conflicts is always complete and absolute destruction of the enemy. However, once an enemy is defeated or claimed surrender, she will halt her assault unless ordered otherwise. However, if she is ordered to perform even heinous acts such as genocide, she will not hesitate to fulfill her orders, though it may haunt her slightly afterwards.
Loyalty to Subordinates
Perhaps the only thing which she cares for more than her position as a leader are the lives of her men and women that compromise the Eldrazi forces. Loyal men and women who follow her in and out of battle she regards with almost maternal instincts, protecting them any time that she can and preventing unnecessary harm from coming to them. She is no stranger to the pains and tragedy of battle and war, but she believes that she owes it to their troops to do the absolute best that she can as their leader. She ensures that the wounded are always treated first, even before the absolute elimination of the enemy; she always fights the strongest opponent on the battlefield herself to prevent them from coming under assault. Those who fall in the line of duty are given military honors and burial, each and every one accompanied by her presence. If she cannot attend, then they are delayed; it is that simple. Furthermore, this loyalty is what makes her unwilling to yield defeat even more than her loyalty to the Eldrazi. The reasoning for this is that she knows very well that what she demands of them is to be the absolute greatest; nothing else will do. She will run them hard and is never surprised by troops that faint from exhaustion, as it is nearly expected that this will be the result of the arduous amount of work that she puts them through without stopping. She sincerely believes in the ideal of being able 'to rest when you are dead', and as a result is vehemently opposed to necromancy, necromancers, and the Doctor Kabuto Hebi.
In combat, however, her demeanor complete changes. She becomes a beast of annihilation, even laughing as she launches massive amounts of artillery at her enemies. She fights without resting, without paying any mind to pain at all. In fact, her resistance to pain is so great that she would keep fighting without resting even if her legs were torn off and wounds covered her body. Furthermore, she is quite fond of aerial attacks, as well as surprise attacks in general. Any time that she can fight an opponent gets her blood boiling, as she is still a soldier and warrior at heart. The ideal of fighting another being in single combat makes her heart blaze more than anything else, although this wish is rarely granted. The sound of explosions and gunfire are like a symphony to her ears, causing her focus to become even stronger than it normally is and her will to push forwards nearly impossible to defer.
Without a doubt, she enjoys the style of Germany the most. Specifically, the old 'Blood and Iron' style that formed one of the world's strongest countries of its history. While she decidedly does not care for the Nazi regime and all that it represents, she does support the fact that they are also German, and one of the strongest German time periods, so she admires the strength they held even if she does not care for their chosen methods of mass murder.
Taste in Clothes
The clothes that she tends to wear are those which would not look out of place on a military officer. However, at the same time, she has a somewhat conservative view towards them even though they have been modified slightly to accompany her in battle, and simply for comfort's sake. One of these modifications is that she does not like longer sleeves, not in the least. The only exception is sweaters, and she wears those frequently when off duty. Sweaters and jeans. However, while on dut she wears the full military uniform of a soldier of Eldrazi, and this suits her perfectly fine.
Taste in Weapons
As far as weapons go, she believes that the bigger they are, the better. She is not one much for espionage; while she certainly enjoys the benefits it can confer, she herself does not have much taste for it. She much prefers military engagement and dominating one's enemy after they have given the battle their all, proving that her force is stronger still.
Like of Ships
She also quite likes ships, even though they are not used as much in the modern era. There is simply something about being on one, of surviving by your wits out with only your group of men holding your fort together. To her, that kind of thing is a liberating experience. She very much enjoys the freedom, as well as the sense of power and responsibility that comes with captaining one.
- Background: (Please be sure to have at least 3 paragraph's of history for your Quincy Character)
- Human Skills:
Evony is a natural leader, understanding how important communication and trust are towards getting a job done. If she sees something as being lacking within her own unit, she will immediately correct it. She does not play politics well, but does understand how to manipulate a subordinate or others to reach her own ends. As a result, she is considered extremely effective in her job, and her subordinates have great respect for their commander.
She is accomplished in the wielding of a saber, or sabre. This weapon has a pommeled hilt that wraps around the hand gripping it, and is sharp on one side. Her dexterity in wielding such a blade should not be underestimated; while she typically uses it as a shield or parrying device in combat, she also knows well how to put strength behind thrusts, pierce guards, and cause terrific bleeding if given the opportunity.
Surprisingly, she also has a wonderful singing voice. While this voice is almost never used, it does exist, and remains as beautiful as when she first discovered her talent. Very few others know of this skill, and when out at sea, it is often believed that her singing is actually caused by mermaids. She does enjoy singing, even if she is unable to do it often.
Due to being a member of a military, Evony's body is well accustomed to pain. Her resistance is strong enough to be able to keep functioning and near-maximum even when a limb has been severed, to maintain a cool head and solve the problem directly before her. She knows exactly how to 'work through' her pain, and as a result it takes quite a lot to cause her to flinch.
Her marksmanship with all firearms is impressive. Without any kind of aid, she can fire a weapon from her hip to hit a target's bullseye more than half a mile away. While lining up that shot would take her a moment, this is more effective in combat, where it allows her to take aim at precise points in an instant, firing her weapon at them from any location. She maintains a series of 'licenses', and these are the weapons that to be 'licensed' she must have achieved full mastery of their use: Pistols, rifles, shotguns, missile launchers, miniguns, semi-automatic weapons, full-automatic weapons, light and heavy machine guns, crossbows, bow and arrow, boomerangs, slingshot, grenades, 'ninja' tools, throwing knives.
Special Forces Physique
Her physical body is trained to its physical limit, even under her uniform she maintains a strong physical form. Her reflexes, senses, and adaptability are all top-notch. Her ability to adapt to weaponry and opponents is difficult to match, and her physical experience with combat is several years in the making.
- Quincy Items:
The sabre that she carries is in reality a Seele Scheider, granting it all of the Quincy traits that go around with it, such as being able to gain special effects upon being infused with spirit energy, causing it to vibrate rapidly and dislodge nearby reishi. While she does not always invoke this ability, it is even rarer that she should fire it, as she only maintains the one. As a result, this Seele Scheider is extremely accustomed to being infused with spirit energy, and if she ever were to over-flow it with power and fire it, it would likely rupture, disturbing all spiritual influences in the area for up to two posts.
In addition, on either side of her uniform, she has a Luger pistol. These pistols, with their very thin barrels, are able to be fired both by pulling their triggers as well as pulling the trigger in her mind. This is due to their nature as a Quincy Weapon. By pulling the trigger, a bolt of pure Spirit Energy that has been shaped into a bullet is launched out, at speeds roughly four times faster than a normal bullet. In addition, there is no kickback, and the gun will fire as many bullets as the wielder has the spiritual energy to place into it.
- Quincy Cross: Her cross actually takes the form of the silver anchor that hangs around her neck.
- Sanrei Glove: Evony actually possesses two Sanrei Gloves, a brown glove on each hand.
- Other Skills:
To ensure that she can lead properly, Evony has devoted much of her time towards developing the power of her Hirenkyaku. Now, she is able to perform several dozen in rapid succession, appearing all over a battlefield in a matter of moments. In addition, she also is known to use it in very short bursts to help her fight enemies either by helping line up a shot or to cause a distraction.
Evony is known to use both forms of Blut, and even at the same time in the cases where she goes on the offensive. Otherwise, she consistently retains a form of Blue Vene, simply in order to ensure that her defenses are always placed up. It is a true sign of her relaxing if she disengages it. However, once she has activated Blut Arterie, her attack power increases dramatically, her blows with her saber able to dislodge even most Bankai-level attacks from their direct path.
Her degree of spiritual particle manipulation may leave something to be desired. This is because Evony does not like to depend on it. Therefore, more often than not she depends only on her own spiritual power, which has caused it to be much greater than that of a typical Quincy. As a result, she is able to 'infuse' her weapons with Spiritual Energy, such as the sabre that she carries at all times. By infusing these weapons with spirit energy, she is able to give them the same traits as a Quincy's arrow, making them weightless and making their edge much sharper than before. She is also able to use this with her own limbs, making them almost like large blades that she can wield in close combat.
Vast Spiritual Well
Due to the extensive training that she has put into improving her own spiritual energy, the amount which she carries at any single time is much greater than normal Quincies. As a Quincy, she even has spiritual pressure like that of a Captain, pressing down on others whenever she becomes serious.
Negation of Attacks: If a quincy can use these arrows precisely, they can to a point they can negate another attack on impact. To do this, the charges the arrows with a sufficient amount of power, and fires them to strike an incoming projectile. However because of morden Quincy style’s, this use has fallen out of use, however a few old style Quincy still use this a thump.
Spiritual Awareness: As a spiritual being, the Quincy can sense Hollows and other spiritual beings at a significant distance or tell in what direction they are in. Quincys are well known to sense the distance to any hollow, and capable of telling how much spiritual power a person has from a simple glance, making them living radars, only a small handful of beings are capable of not being able to appear to a Quincy.
Even though she is not a master at manipulating Reiryoku, she has become much stronger wielder of her Reishi as a result. This control is what helps refine her bullets and blade to become deadly, as well as assisting her in detecting minute changes in the spiritual energy in her environment. As a result, her 'sixth sense' works at a very high level, detecting even such small connections as a person's spiritual connection to their Ziamichi spirit if they are close enough.
- Type: Cannons
Upon the release of her bow, four 'ship' shaped sets of cannons appear along her body. Around her left and right sides she gains two sets a piece, resulting in eight guns. These guns are maintained by a bridging locus of an iron looking red substance that stretches out behind her back, where a large cube-shaped object appears that is consistently glowing a dull blue. Around her waist it also extends a 'control panel' of sorts, although all the controls are mental and this is only for use when she wishes to rest her arms.
- Reishi Color: Bright Red.
The right line of guns on her body, the Bismarck is equipped to fire heavy shells as well as smaller shells and projectiles. Its range is accurate up to 10 miles away, and its fired projectiles are able to reach speeds upwards of 22 miles per minute, approaching speeds of 1320 miles per hour. Armored with 800 millimeters of pure synthetic Rhodium, these bullets are known to destroy buildings when released in force. They are created with spirit energy from the 'battery' on her back, and she can fire up to thirty of them per post, which can lead to unrivaled destruction.
The left line of guns, meanwhile, are all equipped like machine guns. Each of these bullets are roughly 11 inches in length, like sniper shells. However, they are extremely long, and their unique ability is their ability to be fired out like a quincy's arrows. By releasing these shots from the left line, she can create what looks like four 'rivers' of arrows that shoot directly at the opponent, or opponents. By using the Quincy's path control, she can cause these projected arrows to fly out in every direction, with added weight from their trait as bullets. These are typically used to strafe an enemy or otherwise to handle lesser forces of an enemy.
The cannons also are very easy to manipulate. By simply willing it, they can rotate 360 degrees on any part of the cannons, as well as the arms that maintain them being completely pose-able. They will also naturally move out of the way of her arms and legs, causing her no stress while she moves around and attacks. They are as weightless as the air to her, and respond directly to her will.
The cannons also are durable enough to take most blows that one would see in regular combat. As such, they are able to be used as shields by Evony whenever she requires, as well as a spinning barrier that surrounds her entire body. If one is damaged, then it will be rendered 'out of commission' for a post while the Spirit Energy from the battery replenishes the 'ship' back to its full state.
The object on her back, the 'battery', passively absorbs ambient spirit energy. In addition, it collects all the additional spirit energy that is exuded from Evony's combating state. As such, this battery contains an absolutely tremendous amount of spirit energy, and if it were to be deployed as an explosive, it would be like a nuclear blast from the sheer amount of force that it would emit.
- Name: vor Schieff
Once she enters into her Vollstandig, Evony's hat flies off of the top of her head. The majority of the clothing that she wears is ripped away, and in its place appears a shining blue 'armor'. This armor wraps around her torso and upper legs, quite a bit like a latex jumpsuit. In addition, at the bottom of her feet, she gains her new 'weapon'. At her feet, a strange energy construct emerges. This energy construct begins around her feet, wrapping around them like shoes. In sapphire blue hue, these two hoops appear around both of her feet.
In addition, the cannons that were on either side of her body become completely detached from her, floating in the air as well. Each of them has a similar golden hoop wrapped around it, and gains golden insignias, like lines of power, down their entirety.
The basic aspect of Evony's Vollstandig is Laser Manipulation. Or, put more directly, the ability to generate and control 'an intense beam of coherent monochromatic light (or other electromagnetic radiation) by stimulated emissions of photons from excited atoms or molecules.' Essentially, she is able to control beams of light that are concentrated to such a state that they are able to burn and produce damage or other effects due to the intensity present within the beam.
This is the basics behind her abilities, and will be explained in further detail down below.
By manipulating the hoops around her feet, Evony is able to create constructs whose outsides are able to produce lasers. Now, her preferred method of using this technique is to create a board, like a surfboard, that she rides. She can also create two small platforms for her legs to stand on, if she needs to. Now, due to the fact that she is only able to create and produce beams from lasers, she is only able to use this ability to move forwards in a very specific manner. By pushing out lasers from either end, the lasers are forced to meet in a center point. Due to Newton's laws for forces, the horizontal force produced by each laser is dispersed, and just as a teepee pushes into the ground to stay upright, the board with Evony on it is pushed forwards.
Hoop Trait - Alignment
It is important to note that the hoops are locked onto Evony's feet. In other words, she does have to continually think about how to keep herself aligned with her board. The forces between the construct she generates and the hoops are automatic; she merely has to select the mode for them to assume.
The most basic in Evony's arsenal are the simple beams which she is able to produce. Now, while she is able to produce them in a variety of colors, the one which she uses the most is the color blue. By focusing on what spot she wishes to produce a laser from, she is able to convert reishi or her reiatsu into that form, and thus produce a laser from that point. While these can become as large and brutal as a cero, they are more often focused on piercing. The ends of each of her lasers are extremely destructive, and can rip through quite a lot of defense, especially if Evony is able to maintain the beam and the target does not move out of the way of the attack.
Also interesting to note is that Evony is able to produce these beams remotely. However, the which she produces become vastly weaker the farther away they are from herself, to the point where she is only able to make a weak beam like a light pointer after getting more than 100 meters away from her body.
As a side point, these lasers, while having immense piercing potential, are not absolute. Of course, they can be blocked or guarded against with reishi, though they will attempt to burn through such defenses over time or by having their power quickly fade against them. As a result, they tend to burn flesh quite a bit, but against extremely durable beings they may not be able to pierce very deeply.
Beam Production Variant - Conical Style
It is important to note that Evony is also able to produce beams with uneven ends. In other words, she could theoretically create a beam by swiping her hand from the side that was longer on one side than the other. This also means that she could create a laser with spiked ends, or even holes if she so chose to.
While Evony can produce beams, she is also able to take it one step farther - to 'manipulation'. The most basic use of this technique is in the example of the suit which she wears. The entirety of the fabric that Evony wears is in fact a collection of minute lasers, constrained down to the limit of being thread-like. This 'manipulation' is the most potent attribute of her Vollstandig. By enshrining her lasers with this manipulation, which is truly reishi or reiatsu modified into a kind of layering, she is able to control their shape.
For example, by constraining the energy into five points on a star as well as a ring, she is able to throw something resembling a throwing star outwards. While it is in mid flight, the coating releases, causing for several pointed lasers to flare outwards in each direction, piercing anything which they come into contact with. Important to note is that the more light, or 'beam', is condensed in a single object, the greater the final output will be.
Important to note is that whenever the manipulation is 'broken', the beams within are released, emerging entirely out of the construct at the point of devastation. Usually, Evony is not fast enough to react to this phenomenon unless she was preparing for it, such as in the case of the throwing star up above.
In addition, once the 'mesh' that is the core of the technique is wrapped around an 'object', or the beam, it remains that way without drawing any additional power from Evony. The individual meshes do not require that much energy, as they are designed to hold 'in' the lasers and nothing more. They could be thought of as extremely potent and flexible mirrors, preventing the entrapped 'light' from being able to escape by being repeatedly reflected.
Beam Manipulation Variant - Beam Bullets
A technique which Evony has honed, the beam bullets begin as ordinary bullets. While the cannons she wields can fire beams much more intense then what would come out of her own body or remotely, by manipulating those cannon blasts into bullets, she is able to create much more effective bullets. These bullets transform an ordinary cero-sized blast into about three or four bullets. By focusing them all into the center, the beams expand once they have hit the target, generating rays of piercing beams, pencil-thin at times, which rotate around the general vicinity of the bullets. These usually do not extend very far, up to two feet at most individually, and they are limited in their number by how much energy was in each bullet.
Beam Manipulation Variant - Rings
By focusing the center of her lasers on a single point and radially creating the beams around that point and binding their outer layer, Evony is able to make small discs. Or, she is able to create one extremely large disc. This disc can be controlled mentally, repressed or expanded based on how much energy that Evony initially put into it.
Usually, Evony employs this disc strategically, in such a fashion that the opponent will usually believe that they are fighting two people at once with the coordination they have. If this ring is broken by an opponent, than the entirety of the coating disperses, the lasers focusing inwards towards the point of breaking and blasting outwards in a V shape, attempting to essentially bisect whatever destroyed it.
Beam Manipulation Variant - Wall
Another one of Evony's favorite tricks produces very small meshes of lasers in parallel of one another. By releasing these lasers outwards, pencil-thin lines of laser emerge from one end of the mesh, before meeting another laser on the end of the mesh on the other side. Essentially, if Evony created a wall such as this and launched it at a piece of fruit, the fruit would be multi-sected, pieces of it falling off from all different directions as a result.
Now, this technique is actually very easy to stop. If the opponent can determine which laser is the one which is the one keeping the other in balance and destroys its mesh, then the laser being projected will simply disperse.
Perhaps the most advanced application of Evony's Beam Manipulation is when she attempts to halt or otherwise stop an opponents attack. In general, it is very difficult to harm Evony with a beam related attack, such as cero. Something like bala or others which explode are regularly effective, but other lasers will tend to be countered unless they are exceptionally powerful.
Now, with extraordinarily weak lasers or other beam attacks, Evony is able to create circular 'meshes' with her manipulation. By doing such and containing the incoming laser, she can cause for it to return back to the person who released it against her, or she can attempt to contain it in some other manner.
Beam Technique - Neon Writing
By creating very weak lasers and very weak meshing, Evony is able to create 'sky writing' in the air with her lasers. These constructs of laser take very little to create, and can be seen for quite some distance, depending on how much energy Evony places into them. Usually, however, they will emerge in shining blue characters, urging mass battle orders such as 'CHARGE' or 'WITHDRAW'.
