Eriban Shraik» Titles:
Known Aliases: Erin Drindler, Sarah Schaffer, Timothy Westbrook, Arachnid» Age:
Around 300. He is 3-4 years younger than his elder brother Nix Shraik.» Gender:
Sabers» Appearance Description:
A purple haired male, although it is generally difficult to tell the gender of Eriban simply by looking. His face is a strange medium, resting between masculinity and femininity, making it particularly hard to discern which he truly is. His slender form, of course, does not help the eye in deciding. In fact, Eriban is so ambiguous, often the eye decides which gender he is simply based off of which gender he gives the onlooker. His violet eyes have a slight glow to them, which some find alluring, others find relaxing.» Appearance Picture:
(If you have one, link a picture of your character.)
Liar: Naturally, Eriban was trained to lie from a young age, and so has become so skilled in the art that a lie to his mind is the same as the truth. It is this trait that makes it simple for him to assume the role of another.
Manipulator: Eriban does not see a conversation as chatter. He sees an opportunity for control. Assets to be gained. And he makes use of them. Eriban does not simply waste his words. Every word is carefully thought out so that the target will be none the wiser to his true motives, and he does so all while making sure he remains in character.
Ruthless Killer: Eriban, deep under whatever ruse he may be playing at, has the heart of a ruthless killer. In fact, he enjoys killing others. It gives him a feeling of power like nothing else. No one is safe from his blade, not even those others might consider him to be "friends" with. Eriban could kill his entire family and not bat an eyelash. He'd even sleep like a baby. Not to say he has
killed his family... yet.
Sick fascination with death: Eriban has made it a habit to test out whatever different methods of torture he can come up with, if only to see how long it takes for a person to die from them. He enjoys testing the limits of humans in particular, not that Sabers would (officially) approve of that.
Sadist: That said, he's also a massive sadist. Eriban simply loves knowing that his target is in pain, be it physically, or mentally. He loves inflicting pain on others, be they ready and willing, or "otherwise"... and he especially enjoys "otherwise".
Hematophiliac: Eriban absolutely loves everything about blood. Human blood, Demon blood, Angel blood, it doesn't matter! Such things actually sexually arouse Eriban, and if he gets into such a state,that's when the true sadism shows.
Sociopath: In case it wasn't obvious, Eriban is a sociopath. Thus he exhibits narcissism, a strong will to have others see his "work", whatever that may be, and a need to be in control of every situation.
God Complex: Thus far, nothing has been out of Eriban's reach, leading him to believe that he himself is a god, or something like it, because he does what he wants without consequences. If one ever hears Eriban refer to himself as Your God, God, etc. There's a good chance that they weren't still alive by that point.
Low Tolerance for Boredom: Eriban has an extremely low tolerance for boredom. So much so, that if things aren't interesting enough for him, he'll take matters into his own hands. But only when he gets to be himself... which is rare.» Likes:
Blood. When his prey screams or begs for mercy. Shows of power.» Dislikes:
Criticism, rules, being restrained, being pitied, or those worthy of pity.
Eriban is Sabers true success. This much is common knowledge. Born shortly after his brother, Nix, to the same father (as all Shraik are) and mother, Eriban was everything Nix wasn't. Having seen what successes the Shraik Project brought, they sought to perfect the process, so that they could stabilize the DNA of their "Perfect Soldier" while also keeping the volatile nature of the energy within. By no means did they succeed when creating Eriban, but when they saw how different the results were for the tweaks they had made, they decided it would be worth keeping him around. Besides that, Sabers now had a new goal for him in mind...
After 7 months, like his brother, he emerged from his tube fully matured. But this time, instead of baffling the scientists, they looked upon their creation with an all-too-eager malice.
Eriban was raised quite differently from Nix. Eriban was tortured almost daily, being experimented on and starved. Sabers wanted to test the limits of their newest creation. Twenty years he spent in those chambers, shackled to that wall while scientists came and sliced him.. shocked him... The only scientist that wasn't rotated out was the head researcher. So when they finally freed him from his shackles and handed him the head researcher on a platter, he took his time in killing him. After that, they detained him once more, and tortured him again. This time worse than the last. They had a new scientist. This one was ruthless. Shortly after, they let him free again, and like last time, Eriban took his time killing him. He looked him in the eye as he was dying and said "You see... the best part about your studies, doctor, is that you begin to learn yourself... inside and out. He amplified an emp burst into a physical blast, which decapitated the doctor. The cycle went on like that. Torture, starvation, despair, then revenge. Then, it all stopped. Sabers released him. They said, "Your relentless cruelty has earned you your freedom." By this time, Eriban lacked any form of moral compass whatsoever.
From then on, he was rewarded for performing acts of cruelty to others. Aside from that Combat training, high speed hacking, the works. Though he did also possess the power to shape-shift as his brother did, he found no amusement in it, and merely used it to accomplish whatever missions he had to. This time, Sabers was happy with their progress, simply because this Shraik would not complain about feeling nauseous or otherwise guilty about their job. Shortly after this time, Eriban was admitted into the Watchers. A choice the Founder of the branch thought wise, after convening a council with his peers. Eriban was placed in a rather mundane role.
_____________________________» Natural Attributes:
Shape Shifting: All Shraiks are born with the natural ability to change form into a desired physical appearance. Eriban can change his face, body type, gender, and even voice using this method. Other alterations that are not cosmetic (or don't serve a reproductive or tactical purpose) will take 1 post to complete. Such transformations include making working wings, or increasing the strength of one's metabolism, etc.
Increased Performance: Much like Nix, Eriban has the ability to use Soul Matter, a unique fusion of Soul Energy, and reishi. Unlike Nix, however, rather than having a Hierro like barrier over his skin, it is merely stored within him, and released into a rapidly expanding spherical barrier around him in order to block attacks even up to Gran Rey Cero. If someone were to attempt a direct hit, the barrier releasing would not only dissipate all of the energy as it forces itself out, but also cause a knockback effect on the attacker. This defense is passive like hierro, and can take hits for up to 7 posts. Upon expiry, it will take approximately 4 posts to recharge.
Electromagnetic Cells: Every cell in Eriban's body has the power to release varying degrees of electromagnetic disruptions.
Biomechanical Mind: Eriban's mind, and consequently his nervous system, similar to his brother's has control over machinery, but in a very strange way. Upon touching them, he can either absorb the information within into his mind, or flood the machine with packets until it fries itself from the overload.After absorbing the information, he may control that machine remotely as though uplinked.» Racial Powers:
Unbreaking Strength of Mind: Eriban's Anima stone is fused with his brain, and though it may not grant him super strength, it does give him extremely powerful energy manipulation. He can charge a fist with enough energy to destroy a skyscraper, and then compress the energy to a single point, and release it upon impact, effectively making the attack as powerful as if he did. He can manipulate the energy in the air to raise temperature to the point of flames, lightning, and plasma, then direct that energy at a target (eg. his sword, the ground, a person) to deal elemental damage.
Hollow Powers: When Eriban was created, rather than his shinigami DNA winning the fight for dominance, his hollow DNA won, giving him the ability to effectively copy any type of Cero or Bala that hollows can muster. The tier restrictions on Cero types do not apply due to the Shraik's natural perk to use less energy than required for the same effect. He also has a hollow like Zanpakutō, which rather than reverting him to his "true form" as he is formless, merely increases his power to that of a hollow in resureccion. More on that later.
Black Reaper of Souls: Eriban's anima gem being inside of his brain also connects it to the network therein. This makes it so that he can swiftly analyze attacks and learn to negate them (Time to analyze-2 posts), and if they use Soul Force or Reishi, he can copy them simply by viewing them 3 times, or getting hit by them once. (time to analyze and copy (3-posts)» Evolution Powers:
Black Reaper's Blade: Similar to a Hollow's Zanpakutō this blade may be summoned and released, in order to release the inner power of the hollow within Eriban. Rather than change his form when released, the blade merely augments his DNA to utilize more hollow genes than human, which in turn allows him to utilize power on par with an Espada's Resureccion in combat.
Energy production: Eriban's anima stone grants him a vast array of energy abilities. He can imbue objects or people or weapons with his energy. This can be used in a number of ways. The most common method is surrounding said object in energy, compressing the energy, then releasing it all at once to give the illusion of strength. The second is releasing the energy around an object/person to create a slightly less powerful barrier than the one Eriban naturally generates.
