Four Months(Synthetic Human)» Gender:
Batterī is an excitable individual to put it in the most base and honestly rather undeserving terms. He is constantly moving and constantly smiling in the sort of wild and almost maniacal way that Batterī seems to have unique to his little energizer bunny self. He will joyously jump around at the slightest provocation and enjoys occasionally having conversations upside down. The android also thoroughly enjoys sharing that energetic personality with other people. Batterī will quite often seek out others for the social interaction without fully understanding that such socialization was, in fact, an aspect of his inherent programming and design. This causes Batterī to constantly be seeking some form of companionship in the most energetic way possible, which will typically cross boundaries he is completely and utterly oblivious to.
However, behind the excitable youth is an incredibly acute and analytical mind. Moroi would never create something that was idiotic, which unfortunately has led to the current predicament. He has very developed problem solving skills and is capable of quite a bit intellectually, his thought processes being a literal imprint of how the Wareyasui mind is engineered, Batterī being designed to be a perfect mirror of his “father’s” intellect. His mind is capable of calculating numerous mathematical scenarios in extraordinarily short fashion and can often apply this in self-defense, mimicking his progenitor’s hyperactive processing speed.
Despite his exuberant and frequently rather childish behavior, Batterī is not inherently an idiot and is in fact quite intelligent, even beyond the hyperactive cognitive abilities that he has been blessed with. While inexperienced, Batterī is very quick to grasp new concepts and learns at a frighteningly astounding rate. This rapidly developing learning cognizance makes the young construct a very formidable opponent despite this inexperience.
Batterī is, cognitively, very much a child. Considering he was “born” so recently, Batterī has had to “grow” much like anyone else would. Children are naturally innocent; they see and perceive things with eyes and thoughts that are not tarnished with anything negative or unpleasant. For them, everything is fresh and untouched and is there for them to explore and experience. Being innocent and being naïve may be synonymous, but they are different and have attributes that are distinct from each other. Innocence is the trait of being unaware about anything in the world while naiveté is being unable to properly function in society. “Innocent” is defined as “a trait or characteristic of a person who is sinless and uncorrupted by evil, malice, or wrongdoing and as such, is not tainted with any unpleasant emotion.” That is what Batterī would be, a child who is inexperienced and has next to no knowledge of worldly and evil things.
It is not necessarily that Batterī is naive, he isn’t. He can understand the concept of a lie, he understands how to sniff out falsehoods, he understands that people are capable of evil, he is familiar with his creator and he is not without understanding of evil, his spirit and soul has just yet to be tarnished by it. This allows him to approach the world with a lively exuberance that can only be compared to that of an innocent child. This unfortunately also comes with some negatives as well. Because of his juvenile disposition, he tends to be easy to trick. Not because he is not concerned with the concept of deception, but because he simply has not been exposed to evil. Batterī, while being a massive intelligent entity, is limited by his knowledge of the world. This, at times, will cause him to appear dumb, when the opposite is the case.
One of the benefits of a short life is that young Batterī does not have memory issues. Also one of the negatives of having a short life and a nigh infinite encyclopaedic brain...is that he does not have memory issues. He fully remembers the inhumane and downright disturbing conditions he was kept in at Moroi’s behest and as such, there is a very, very healthy amount of deep-seated resentment for his progenitor, the being he refers to as “Father.” Consequently, it is the one subject that causes young Batterī to completely and utterly shift in demeanor. Whenever Moroi or his Girkois are mentioned or, heaven forbid, seen, the sense of childish wonder will leave Batterī and in its place shows the hardened, the fierce, the harsh look of a soldier, of a warrior, of a killer.
This often comes as something of a shock to people who see him in this state and condition, as it is a complete and utter tonal shift from his typical personality and demeanor, which has caused rifts between him and others in the past. In Batterī’s mind, this is very normal. His reaction to one stimuli is not necessarily going to be the same as his reaction to another, consequently he does not understand people’s adverse reactions to seeing the stern, almost bloodthirsty form he adopts upon what he considers a negative stimuli, this shift being the number one strain he tends to have upon interpersonal relations.
The Wareyasui are a clan of spiritually aware and evolved humans. Said clan rose to prominence roughly around the same time as their cousins, the Quincy. They were not as developed then as they are now, in multiple facets, but at the time, they were among the foremost scholars and thinkers of the world. They had supernatural cognitive powers and the ability to house, manipulate and utilize their internal Chi in a way that no one had seen before. They were not much for fighting however, the method in which they manipulated Chi was not suited for fighting hollows and other manner of beasts that plagued the human world. At the time, the full extent of the Wareyasui super-human prowess was their over-develop cognitive capabilities and the ability to use Chi to move small objects. The Wareyasui did not have any offensive methods of striking out at their opponents and were unable to do much to halt the advance of the strange creatures that plagued their world, the Wareyasui only able to notice just how in danger they were right before they were eaten. Their powers were, however, suited exceptionally well for medical and scientific applications and as such, they found their cousins, the Quincy, and struck up an accord. The Wareyasui, historically served as combat medics to the spiritually aware humans as they fought the hollows, namely the Quincy. In a matter of centuries, the Wareyasui name was welcomed with love and adoration and their accomplishments brought untold amounts of glory and prestige to the Quincy halcyon days.
Of course, those days would be short-lived. If there was anything to say about the Wareyasui, it was that they evolved rapidly and, unfortunately, not always positively. While their cognitive abilities constantly evolved, becoming more and more potent, other genetic mutations began to take root in the bloodline. Osteogenesis Imperfecta developed in the Wareyasui, fifteen percent of the next generation being afflicted. One hundred years later, sixty five percent of the clan was afflicted with the Brittle Bone Disease. Given the now rather failing, pathetically, health that the majority of the clan endured, they were forced to withdraw from the forefront of the fight against the hollows, which may in fact have spared them from the genocide that crashed down upon their cousins’ heads. Unfortunately, they had their own form of genocide that they needed to contend with. Stillborn deaths due to children affected by Lobstein Syndrome occurred in seventy percent of all pregnancies and what was once a proud, flourishing family was shrunk to barely a tenth of its former glory. In addition, the severity of their condition caused plenty of accidental deaths and crippling injury, further increasing the body count of the diminishing clan. For a long time, the Wareyasui disappeared entirely from public view and were assumed extinct by anyone who had heard the stories of their accolades. It was not an unusual assumption given the constant stillborn deaths that Osteogenesis Imperfecta tended to inflict, but it would prove to be an inaccurate conclusion. For many centuries leading up to the present day, the Wareyasui dedicated their extraordinary cognitive prowess to overcoming their weaknesses. It was that quest, that quest for renewal as a people, as a species, as a functioning person that led to the creation of the Wareyasui’s greatest success and their greatest weakness.
No one in the Wareyasui clan sought that goal more fiercely than the prodigal son, Moroi. He detested the weakness in his family’s bloodline, the inevitable decay and death of their very bones was something he could not accept. Unlike most however, who sought a remedy to function closer to that of the humans they once co-existed with, Moroi saw the weakness as an epidemic of the humanity they still had. His zeal was not spurred by his family’s desire to move closer to humanity, he instead sought to move as far away from their cousins, a people he considered little better than apes. The fervent desire to ascend, to push past the limitations that genetics and the despicable weakness that comes of it. Thus formed an idea. Moroi’s intelligence was his greatest asset, but regardless of such a vast intellect he had not been able to finish himself. He could not solve the problem of his ancestry and the answer eventually felt obvious, he was not yet smart enough. Which led to another obvious answer, he had to make himself smarter. Being a Wareyasui, he used the thing he knew most, the Akagai.
Moroi had spent a long time studying humans, despite his utter contempt for them, and especially focused on the manifestation and development of the various powers that have blossomed in a wide variety of humans, specifically what causes them. Over the course of a year, Moroi experimented with various humans, people that wouldn’t be missed, and forcibly tried to induce powers unto them through genetic manipulation and chi exposure and eventually, he was successful. Success bred more success, the people he was inducing powers in even began surviving the process. However, while he could influence it and direct it, he could never fully control what power manifested in the humans. It was the greatest road block, and then he got tired of looking for the genetic data he wanted, so he made one instead. Using his considerable scientific and financial backing, Moroi created a human. Well, not exactly. Moroi looked for the genetic markers that were as close to what he was looking for as possible and altered them, slowly and deliberately, until he was able to manufacture exactly what he was looking for. Then, using the Akagai technology he already created and, to summarize a very complicated and honestly somewhat ridiculous procedure, Moroi generated his first android, his first semi-organic creation.
Moroi was nothing if not vain however, as much as he saw his creation as no more than a tool, he felt the need to make it in his image as well. Utilizing his own genetic material in the grafts in addition to the material from his targeted “patrons,” Moroi made his “perfect tool.” Batterī was initially a success, the genetic manipulation was quite the accomplishment and Moroi’s cognitive capabilities increased leaps and leaps through the use of his tool. He had created a creature who could amplify the supernatural abilities of humans, theoretically anything. Amplifying Moroi’s intelligence yielded remarkable results. His accomplishments in the short term were truly astounding, he even managed to momentarily subdue his weaknesses and the progress in Akagai research was honestly ridiculous. However, no long term cure was discovered, despite the effectiveness of Batterī. Something Moroi did not anticipate was happening as well. He had devised Batterī to be an equal in terms of processing power as a Wareyasui, to be able to maximize his powers as quickly as possible, he did not count on Batterī gaining sentience. He didn’t truly have a brain, or many of the anatomical parts of a human being, Moroi believed it was the combined package that generated the sentience...he was wrong. Over time, Batterī developed a consciousness and as all tools do when they realize they are tools, Batterī rebelled.
Every night he “slept” in isolation, under guard by Moroi’s soldiers, treated as an object and regarded as nothing more than his namesake, a battery, he developed more and more resentment. He wanted to be human, he wanted the opposite of Moroi, he wanted to embrace these “human” qualities he was developing. He did not want to be a machine, he did not want to be Moroi’s tool. When he finally spoke up against the torment, Moroi naturally assumed he was defective, that he needed to be fixed. Batterī did not wish to be fixed. Before Moroi could stamp out whatever semblance of sentience Batterī had gained, he fought back. He destroyed the complex he was held in, battered through the Girkois, and escaped to freedom. That is where his story begins, on the run from Moroi and his soldiers, fleeing from an army of super soldiers in an attempt to reach his goal, he wanted to be human, he wanted to be treated as a person...and he was going to fight for it.
_____________________________=Manic Cognitive Function=
The Wareyasui brain is substantially, for lack of a better description, more evolved than those of every other human being on the planet. To prescribe a quantitative value to their cognitive capabilities, Wareyasui brains are roughly ten times as effective as their peers. For example, the Wareyasui process information and react to stimuli ten times quicker than a normal, the word used very loosely in this world, person. Many traits that are deemed rare and exceptional amongst the rest of the world are inherent in a Wareyasui. Every Wareyasui has a perfect eidetic memory, is a near perfect mathematician and possesses astronomical analytical and critical thinking skills. For a practical application, a Wareyasui could perform a perfect physical and geometric analysis on an incoming arrow and calculate the necessary reaction in the time that anyone else would realize a weapon was drawn. By extension, the Wareyasui tend to be exceedingly proficient in mathematics and its sub-branches.=Centuries of General and Medical Knowledge and Understanding=
Moroi, being the shining light for the future of the Wareyasui, was trained in everything, and that really does mean everything, that the family has accrued over the course of its existence. He has been drilled constantly from a young age on the different spiritual beings and their capabilities since a young age and in addition the boy was trained extensively in the medical field, having undergone enough training to be considered an expert physician and combined with his highly analytic and fast acting brain makes Moroi one of if not the finest medical experts on the planet. Of course, this knowledge is limited to humans and his knowledge of anatomy for spiritual beings is not equally expansive. These traits were passed on to Batteri=Painless=
Pain has a purpose in humans, it allows them to detect and react properly to damage sustained. For Batterī, his own systems are capable of running the myriad of diagnostics required to assess structural damage to his form, consequently there was no reason to program him to understand the concept of pain and, by extension, pleasure. He is not devoid of tactile input, but all of his sensory input derives itself strictly on a mechanical basis. Anything that was not deemed essential for survival and effectiveness is not available. This is both a great strength(Batterī does not “tire” from stress like a conventional being would and is able to shrug off blows rather effectively because of it) but it is also a sore spot as far as his psyche is concerned. He aspires to be human and pain is such a basic element of human behavior that his lack of it is something that is a constant pall on him. He constantly strives to achieve something akin to pain or pleasure to drive himself closer to humanity and at times it is a rather fanatical desire.
Batteri was designed to amplify and increase, exponentially, the supernatural powers of Moroi Wareyasui. However, the ability was in no way limited to Moroi himself. Batteri is himself an energy source designed to increase, to a radical degree, any supernatural powers that he is immersed in. Consequently, Batteri is an honestly terrifying weapon beyond his own control. While he cannot turn this internally and amplify his own ability to amplify, Batteri is a rather terrifying supplement to another supernatural being. This power manifests in two ways, primarily.
The first is through a process Batteri has designated as the tether, which was the way the ability was designed to function by Moroi. With a mutual agreement from himself and the target, Batteri will begin channeling his Amplification and consequently his energy into the target, bestowing a drastic increase in potency and effectiveness in the target. In its designed capacity, Batteri vastly improved Moroi’s already supernaturally endowed intellect to the point of nigh impossible scientific breakthroughs, but this would apply to any form of ability. For someone supernaturally fast, Batteri’s tether would double their speed, similarly for strength. Someone who fired energy blasts would find them far more powerful while tethered to Batteri, etcetera. The tether is limited only by Batteri and consequently regulated by him as well, there is no additional drain on the tethered individual. Not everyone is capable of fully utilizing Batteri’s amplification however and overcharging the partner is a serious concern and overexposure, while not necessarily taxing the partner energy itself, can put a considerable stress on their body if they are not strong enough to handle Batteri’s output, limiting his effectiveness based on his tethered partner.
The second manifestation comes in an unintentionally designed and somewhat offensive form. Instead of the focused, direct, and controlled version that the tether provides, Batteri is capable of protruding a field of energy around him, up to sixty meters in diameter, that saturates the surrounding area in his saturated energy. While not as potent as the tether, interaction with this energy will increase the potency and effectiveness of any and all supernatural abilities present in the area. However, since Batteri is simply releasing this energy and not guiding and directing it, the enhanced abilities are far more difficult for the user to control and in addition, most people would not notice that anything had changed until they tried to utilize their abilities and throwing off any sense of muscle memory. Speedsters would be unable to control their bodies properly, most likely tripping and falling in to the environment, energy based fighters would struggle to control the burgeoning energy within them, often giving Batteri a chance to strike in the confusion or, more likely, get the bloody hell out of there. In addition, while the time it takes will vary person to person, the overcharged power will, eventually, tire Batteri’s opponents out due to the excessive energy wearing down their bodies. While this has inherent benefits, it comes with obvious flaws. The more intelligent, referenced by their capacity for mental deduction, the victim is the more likely they are to process the changes in themselves, causing the energy field to do far more harm than good by making them stronger for as long as their bodies will allow and making them far more dangerous opponents. Even without being especially deductively intuitive, everyone will eventually learn to control their amplified abilities, causing the ability to effectively always generate stronger opponents for Batteri to contest with, opening a short(or long depending) window where the ability does Batteri far more harm than good.
The second unintentional development in Batteri’s abilities was loosely tied to the field projection application of the amplification. While he, like any other Chi Human would, has access to the basic Yin and Yang Surge, his ability to saturate an area with his energy offers him far more maneuverability in their application. Batteri is capable of using energy within this saturated field and changing its density at will. While focusing on a specific section within his field, Batteri can mold and shape the energy into a variety of forms, though in general the synthetic human will stick to forming barriers and shields out of his energy to deflect attacks to himself or his allies. While small scale shields tend to be simple for him and do not require much effort, the larger the construct Batteri attempts to make the more strain it will place on his body and taking up the entire radius of his energy field will quickly drain him of his abilities. The shields themselves are also limited by how much energy Batteri can condense in that one particular spot of his field, making the strength of the barriers wildly variable. While the different shield and barriers are the most common application of the Energy Projection, Batteri is not limited to condensing the energy to such extremes. By simply raising the density a comparatively marginal amount, he can make it feel as if his opponents are moving through molasses, hampering the capability of their movements. Batteri is, unfortunately, still limited by the amount of energy he can exude and only has the energy within the aforementioned one hundred and twenty meter radius. So while this affords him a lot of cost effectiveness in his abilities(if a shield is destroyed, the energy still remains, still giving Batteri something to reform and making it difficult for him to actually lose energy with his abilities) he is still limited by the energy he had released. In order to make particularly powerful shields or hindrances, Batteri would need to take energy from other spots in his field of energy, generating blind spots when using this ability and limiting the overall effectiveness and flexibility of his abilities.
The third form of energy projection and the one that shows up in nearly every altercation that Batteri is forced to partake in is a weapon that Batteri has taked to calling Madlife. He isn’t even sure why he named it such, perhaps Moroi had programmed a latent respect in him for archaic recreational mediums of an age long past or perhaps the gods who preside over their meager lives and pointless adventures simply happened to be a big fan. Regardless, The Madlife has proven to be a very effective weapon. The weapon is an almost ethereal looking sickle and chain that has two distinctly different qualities than similar “bladed” weapons. First and foremost, while the weapon does have tangibility and is capable of deflecting incoming weapons and projectiles, the Madlife is unable to cut anything. The blade of the sickle carries a very powerful adhesive property to it that upon “cutting” in to someone, it will lodge itself into their very energy. This does not cause any pain, but it can and will hamper their movement as long as the blade remains lodged inside them. Should the blade be removed, the energy it has “claimed” will be dragged out of the victim by the blade, effectively allowing it to siphon away energy from his opponent. This energy itself is not usable by Batteri in any way and tends to simply be dissipated into nothing.
The other and really kind of only offensive attribute the weapon has is in its delivery system. The head of the weapon, the sickle, is able to be “fired” at truly astonishing rates, rivaling even the quickest of balas, with no more than a simple wrist flick from Batteri, making it very flexible in chasing down his opponents and attempting to shackle them. The concussive force of the weapon hitting someone can be quite painful. In addition, the sickle is capable of firing high impact concussive blasts from any angle of the whole sickle which, while affording him a damaging option after the sickle has either struck or entangled someone, also allows him to change its trajectory and angle mid flight at a whim, giving him a very useful option at a range to fend off opponents.
The Berserker Protocol would be akin to Batteri’s “first” awakening. Unlike a typical awakening however, Batteri doesn’t fully understand both what it is or how to trigger it, making it presently impossible for it to be a conscious decision. The Berserker Protocol is a self-preservation sub-routine Moroi installed in to Batteri that triggers when his creation’s life is put in danger, strictly when someone has the intent to destroy or kill him. Once triggered, Batteri’s eyes will glow a bright blue and a myriad of changes will beset Batteri.
First and foremost, Batteri will be stripped of the sentience he has attained. Any sense of self the boy had achieved would be removed, leaving behind a brain that could only be described as a computer, an obnoxiously hyper advanced computer, but a computer nonetheless. Consequently a lot of the things that come with a conscious mind are bereft him, such as doubt, indecision, and hesitation and is solely focused on eliminating all threats to Batteri’s well being. The decisions he makes are completely and utterly based on the intensely powerful mathematical mind of the Wareyasui that was imprinted on to him. He will instantly calculate every potential action, every potential decision, and every possible reaction instantly and will always make the mathematically most beneficial decision. Because of this, Batteri seems to be making decisive decisions on a level far exceeding any of the known intelligent minds on this planet, benefiting him with a reaction time that anyone would be envious of.
In addition, his previous ability of Amplification is turned completely inward. Instead of Amplifying the powers of others, he instead dramatically enhances his own physical attributes, pushing them to the utmost of his body’s limits and then beyond, seemingly elevating himself in to tiers of strength and speed that he has no business scratching much less dominating, causing this form to be an absolute terror to fight against on a physical level. In addition, while he is certainly no slouch physically normally, Batteri’s movements take on a sense of precision and grace that is truly and utterly baffling to anyone who had observed him in his “unawakened” state. The calculated movements, while lacking the artistic flair or “heart” of many traditional martial arts, make it seem as if he is a complete and utter master of hand to hand combat, operating on the data installed in his encyclopedia-esque brain.
There are disadvantages to the Berserker Protocol however. Because every action he takes is dependent on data, there is literally no creativity to his movements. It is possible to trip him up with creative thinking and deceptive battle strategies, his lack of sentient thought in this mode, despite his absurdly quick reaction time and physical attributes, make him rather easy to pick apart by a creative strategist. The Berserker Protocol also cannot be deactivated consciously(there’s no consciousness to deactivate it) and will persist until all threats are eliminated or until Batteri is incapacitated to destroyed, limiting his options once the Berserker Protocol is engaged, making it a fully “All or Nothing” card once triggered.
