The Pale Skinned Demon. Rakshasa of Gluttony. The Voracious Prince. » Age:
At an age of one hundred and eighty-six Bid'Daum is possibly one of, if not the youngest Raksasha to date. » Gender:
Male» Affiliation & Rank:
Guardian of the 35th Layer of Hell. » Layer & Residence:
Residing of the 35th layer dubbed as the 'Hell Express', or the 'Hell Train', Bid'Daum's main residence is within the uppermost 'floor' within his domain. The Hell Express itself is the main residence of those within Bid'Daum's layer, and also serves as the only way for any aside from Bid'Daum or specific guests to travel from floor to floor. In total the 35th layer is comprised of over one hundred floors, one hundred and forty-three to be exact.
Serving as one of the main floors within the layer is the first floor, or the primary station. This is where any soul passing through the layer arrive at first, and is the location in which the receive their ticket to board the train. Upon receiving the ticket one is now capable of passing from floor to floor aboard the Hell Train, until finally reaching Bid'Daum's floor, and his final judgement. Those who pass his judgement then move onto the next Layer within Hell. For those whom have the misfortune of losing their ticket, or having it stolen, they remain on whichever floor they lost the ticket on. Unless coming into possession of another ticket such soul remain within the 35th layer for the rest of eternity.
Unlike most layers within Hell Bid'Daum's is more or less free of his governing. Rather than judge each and every soul within his layer himself, Bid'Daum allows the souls, and his train, to do so for him. Those found worthy of moving onto the next layer are those whom make it to the top of the 'tower' so to speak, or those whom somehow find themselves under Bid'Daum's direct judgement. As previously stated those whom remain within the 35th layer are those too weak to hold onto their tickets, or foolish enough to lose such a valued possession. Such residence are those that occasionally find themselves prey to Bid'Daum's more vicious tendencies.
Within the 35th layer each of the one hundred+ floors carry their own unique appearance based upon their position within the layer, or tower. It isn't unusual to find both luxury, and lawlessness within Bid'Daum's layer due to how he goes about his rule. Aside from checkpoint floors, the Station, the Hell Train, and the floors higher within the layer, many have fallen into lawless states in which many souls struggle for survival if they lack the strength, or will, to fight. Those on the more controlled layers, or more luxurious layers, find themselves in a more controlled and maintained environment. One in which many either reform to the laws upon such floors, or suffer one of many different fates.
Finally the Hell Train itself is a behemoth of a locomotive, easily towering over most residence whom board the vessel. The gargantuan train travels throughout the 35th layer via unknown means that allow it to travel any path chosen for it, be it land, air, or sea. In order to board the Train one must insert their ticket into a slot located at one of the numerous doors along the length of the train. Upon entering the train one is exposed to a marvelous feat, a controlled atmosphere with its own day and night rotation, and even differing weather from cart to cart. Travel within the Hell Express is a dangerous task, especially during the night. This is due to two factors, first being the creatures that call the train, and the rest of the layer home. The second factor being the inhabitants themselves, many eventually become ticket hunters, usually hunting stragglers under cover of night. Upon every 5th floor reached residents of the train must undergo a test, if successful in their venture then they may continue throughout the layer, otherwise they will remain at the current floor until the train returns and they possess a ticket.» Favored Locations:
Despite the topmost floor within his layer being Bid'Daum's main residence, the hell demon can be found visiting several other locations on occasion. One such location is the Hell Train itself. Bid'Daum tends to visit the train for one of four reasons. The first, to sate his hunger. The second, to test the strength of the souls within his layer. The third, to find companions, as even he gets lonely from time to time. And the final reason, to seek out his eternal companion, Kali, the Naraka Jānavara connected to his being.
Another frequented location would be Earth itself, where the hell demon enjoys masquerading as the young human he already looks like. Throughout his travels Bid'Daum has met many he had been willing to call friend, companion, and even foe. Though most have passed due to the human lifespan. Nowadays Bid'Daum simply visits Earth to remind himself of those time. Though, truth be told, he does visit to cause havoc every once in a while.
Finally comes the other layers within Hell. Although he has yet to truly interact with any of his brethren Bid'Daum has popped in and out of the odd layer to see how the other Rakshasa rule and maintain their realms. » Written Appearance:• Hair:
Long silvery-white hair, resembling the light given off by the moon, cascades from atop Bid'Daum's head. Coming at a halt just above the tailbone his head of hair is luxuriant, silky smooth, and almost as thick as a lions mane would be. Generally Bid'Daum is seen with his hair let down, flowing freely in the breeze as he moves about his days. On the odd occasion one may even see his hair styled into a single pony-tail, or in a warrior's braid of sorts. • Eyes:
Similar to his hair Bid'Daum's eyes are a silvery-white, although their shade would be more akin to a dulling silver mirror than moonlight. Softer than normal for a males eyes, the mirror like orbs add to Bid'Daum's effeminate appearance. The crimson lines underlying his eyes also don't help the feminine appearance, as they can be mistaken for makeup from time to time.• Physique:
The Hell demon known as Bid'Daum appears as an effeminate male, whom possesses both a short stature, and an extremely pale complexion. As a result of this, and his chosen hair style, Bid'Daum is often mistaken as a young female upon first glance. Even when not mistaken as a young female Bid'Daum is nearly always perceived as the young adolescent male his body has taken the form of. Despite his child-like, feminine appearance, Bid'Daum possesses astonishing strength(for his size, and appearance), and captivating agility and natural speed. The body of the young Hell demon appears to favor thin, flexibility, and density in his muscle mass vs bulk, size, and power.• Clothing:
Nearly one hundred percent of the time Bid'Daum can be seen wearing one single outfit. The Hell demon is always spotted wearing a pale white gown-like piece of clothing that covers the entirety of his body. Atop his head, as if to show the world how he regards himself, sits a small silver crown. Finishing his appearance is small piece of unknown material that has a steel-like coloration. The piece is triangular in shape, and bears an unknown crest. The purpose of the piece is unknown to all but Bid'Daum.• Demonic Energy:
When expressed outside of his body Bid'Daum's demonic energy appears in various shades of whites, greys, and silvers. At one moment it could be a brilliant, blinding white, before becoming a foggy dull grey, or a majestic shining silver.
Often presenting himself with an aura of importance it comes to no surprise that Bid'Daum holds himself in high regards. Such is the males arrogance that he views himself superior to many, sometimes even to those equal to him or higher in the food chain. When it comes to his view of the various races the Rakshasa's arrogance obtains a whole new level. While viewing ones race as powerful could be considered a show of pride Bid'Daum takes it beyond this, feeling and believing that Demon kind, Rakshasa especially, are above other races in the realms. Beyond this he views races such as the Angel Iramasha, Shinigami, and other 'holy' or 'pure' beings as trash, a waste of space, and a waste of life.
Another aspect of Bid'Daum's personality is that he is extremely driven when it comes to obtaining whatever goals he sets for himself, as well as when it comes to gaining more power. That said Bid'Daum does have his moments where he becomes extremely lazy, although one usually can prevent these moments with a promise of bloodshed and something delicious to devour.
Furthermore the pale Rakshasa can be quick to anger, sometimes going on destructive rampages over loss of sleep, or misplacing one of his favorite foods. When in these angry rants Bid'Daum can become extremely hard to placate, usually taking hours or even days to calm down, which is then followed by fulfilling his gluttonous appetite.
Finally the unfortunate being has been tortured by a never ending, unyielding, agonizing hunger. This hunger is part of what drives his being, driving him to devour anything and everything before him. Most of the time the Rakshasa has a firm hold over this unquenchable hunger but there are times when Bid'Daum's control over himself slips and he delves into a state in which his sin of Gluttony takes hold completely, driving him to act completely on instinct.
Hunger... Such painful, agonizing, endless hunger. Before anything else it was the very first thing the demonic soul that would become Bid'Daum knew. While still unborn the soul of the demon called out in starvation, wanting, needing any form of sustenance to try and quell the hunger. For what seemed like an eternity the now soon to be born demon knew nothing but an existence of pained hunger, one that could not be ended in such a form. But the soul would try.
As the first act of life, in the moments before the demon would be born, a malevolent aura would be unleashed by the demonic soul. This aura would consume all that it swept over in the souls attempt to fend of the never ending starvation it has, and continues to experience. As a result other demonic entities in the vicinity would have their souls torn from their bodies only for them to be consumed to by demonic aura sent forth from a yet to be born soul. Once reaching a distance of one hundred meters from its host the aura rebounded, Bid'Daums soul hungrily devouring the souls and energies carried within. But it would not be enough. The demon would continue to hunger, craving more to fill the void. Being the only thing left in the area the demon would begin consuming the nearest flesh like a starved animal.
In the end the birth of this demon would be gruesome, the newborn having devoured its mother from the inside out. Over the next several days the newborn demon would continue to hunger, its soul suffering from an agonizing starvation that never seemed to cease no matter how much sustenance was taken in. It would be nearly a week later when several mindless demonic entities began closing in, the stench of blood, and a weaker demonic essence calling out to them. By now the newborn demon was only being kept alive by its own essence, and the energy received from what it had eaten so far in its existence. But on this day the newborn would get to feed again, the possessive hunger of its soul being the only thing to keep it alive as the hunger twisted and altered the demonic essence of Bid'Daum. By the time the alterations had ceased the newborn demon had been touched by Gluttony, cursed with an unyielding hunger, and an essence that would consume all that contacted. Because of this the newborn would live on as his demonic essence continued to draw others in for it to devour.
For weeks, maybe months, this scenario would continue, many demons losing their lives as Bid'Daums form slowly began to change. While not notable at first, overtime it would become evident that the newborn demon had begun going through physical changes. Likely a by product of the souls, energies, and bodies consumed by his demonic aura. It was as if his entire being was utilizing what it had taken to reconfigure Bid'Daums form, creating something stronger while using the knowledge that had been consumed with the souls. By the end of the process the newborn demon would appear more like a child, the surface of its form constantly altering, as if the most efficient form had yet to be created. The only constant of the new form would be a crown shaped protrusion from the tops of its head, almost resembling a cluster of spikes.
While now possessing a stable form that could move on its own Bid'Daum was running more on instinct than his own power. The hunger in his soul driving him forward, wanting, and needing to consume more. Thus the new form the demon had taken would set out on unsteady feet, its mind consumed by confusion and hunger. Following the creation of this new form Bid'Daum would wander the Outlands, killing and eating any lifeform he crossed paths with, all the while his form slowly coming to completion whilst his mind made sense of the knowledge his soul had assimilated. It would take roughly a year before a sense of self would begin setting in, during this time the unstable demon would wreak havoc, his uncontrolled powers devouring all that neared.
Over the span of roughly half a century Bid'Daum would spend his days in his new form wandering through the Outlands. During this period the demon would not only grow accustomed to his new body, but would also begin gaining an understanding of the abilities he had now gained. Unfortunately this would be the time period in which Bid'Daum would discover something he had been cursed with. Eternal, unyielding, hunger. It was like a nightmare, living everyday of his existence with a hunger that never waned, never quit. Always ate at the very edges of his soul. Day after day. Month after month. Year after year the hunger would plague Bid'Daum, until eventually it began corrupting both mind and soul.
As the hunger continued to effect Bid'Daum the demon's mind would buckle, his soul giving into the temptations of his hunger. This would be one of the first times Gluttony would rule the demons instincts causing him to attack and devour anything that happened upon his path. It was like his early days of existence all over again. The years would tick by once again as Gluttony ran free with instinctual control over a demonic body. During these years the already dark soul of the demon would grow darker, more corrupt, until eventually a fundamental change would begin. Finally the warping soul, and the effects it would have upon Bid'Daum's energies, in addition the the lifestyle his body had been living.. Would all equate to change the demon, altering his being, and creating something new. Something power. On this day the Rakshasa of Gluttony would be born.
» The Rakshasa of Gluttony Awakens «
It would be sometime after his transformation when Bid'Daum's conscious would finally regain control over his body. With his body no longer running on gluttonous instinct Bid'Daum would come to a slow realization that something has change. Soon enough the newborn Rakshasa would find his reflection in a puddle nearby, discovering his human appearance. Startled by this revelation Bid'Daum's demonic energy spikes out of control, tearing the area around him asunder whilst he comes to grips with the changes he has gone through. After several moments the demonic spike of energy would settle down while Bid'Daum himself takes a moment to calm his mind and search within. Upon doing so the newborn Rakshasa discovers memories of a time long past, memories of being taught of new guardians of Hell known as the Rakshasa. Given this memory, and the few memories he could cycle through from when his body had run on instinct, the demon could only come to the conclusion that he had become a Rakshasa himself, although he didn't quite understand how for himself.
Soon enough the newly born Rakshasa would discover that he was in a new location. One entirely different from any he had seen before. At first glance Bid'Daum could only spot a wasteland for as far as he could see, the landscape dotted with the occasional structure or wandering soul. This withered plain of existence was but a shadow of what it once was, and what it could become. It would be in this place that Bid'Daum would learn his role as a Rakshasa, as well as come into his new powers. The first of which would already begin showing itself as Bid'Daum's wandering brought him to a tired state. Wishing for somewhere to rest, with a picture in his mind, the Rakshasa would be stupified as a structure suddenly began emerging from the ground before normalizing again. This would be his first experience with one of his new abilities, Reality Warping. And over the years to come Bid'Daum would come to a level of mastery over the ability that would be expected of all Rakshasa, after-all how else would they maintain and shape their layers?
Of course Reality Warping wouldn't be the only ability Bid'Daum would discover. Over the coming decades Bid'Daum would begin learning much about his abilities, though in some cases he had already, in some form, displayed an ability or two before becoming a Rakshasa. Such as his Matter Ingestion ability, or others linked to the Sin he was meant to represent. Not only would the young hell Demon begin learning about his abilities, but during these years he would meet a companion that would never leave his side. Over the course of the next hundred years or so Bid'Daum would constantly train himself, learning more about his abilities everyday. Not only this but he would gain insight on the companion he had met, and just what she was to him. Thus over those years the 35th layer would begin to change and flourish as Bid'Daum learnt more and more about his purpose.
By the time Bid'Daum was halfway through his second century of life he had learnt much about himself. From his abilities such as Naraka Rēlagāṛī, which allowed him to bring forth a portion of his layer into another realm, to others like Pēṭū Abhiśāpa which allowed him to influence other beings through their gluttony. One of the only things remaining undiscovered by the Rakshasa was his released form, and the full potential behind his being. Such a discovery would not occur for sometime, and until then all would be well within the 35th layer of Hell.
Years would continue to flow by like water down a riverbed while Bid'Daum maintained the 35th layer. But by now the young Rakshasa was growing bored of his duties, and felt a need for something new. Thus leaving Gwen in charge of the layer for the time being Bid'Daum would set out into the other realms, visiting those he could manage accessing, while remembering those he couldn't. One realm the Rakshasa would begin spending plenty of time within would be that of Humans. While easily below one such as himself Bid'Daum found them amusing, their creations interesting, and their food addictive. It would also be in the human realm that Bid'Daum would have his first true encounters with other races. One by one the pale demon would meet the races at random, sometimes the encounter being friendly, though more often than not it ended in conflict that left nearby cities wondering who was causing the nearby destruction. During these encounters Bid'Daum would not only hone his skills, but would pick up a few before modifying them to his own use, or in one case simply taking the name of a technique similar to what he already did.
And so time would continue to flow onward once again, until one particular encounter. One in which Bid'Daum would discover a portion of his true power. And one in which the Rakshasa would be shown, ruthlessly, that there are others far above himself. Unfortunately for the young Rakshasa he had to go picking fights with Royalty. And so his challenge was answered, by who? Why the woman in charge of course. In the end the confrontation hadn't lasted too long, only long enough for the Demon Queen to beat Bid'Daum down not once, twice, nor three times, but four times before he wouldn't get back up. It was upon the third beat down that Bid'Daum would truly awaken, during this particular one instinct took hold over the pale demon once again, this time calling forth the truth of his being. On that day Sabhee ka Bhakshak was released before being beaten into submission by the Queen of Demons. After that day Bid'Daum returned to the 35th Layer with newfound determination. Ever since none have seen him outside of his domain.. Perhaps it's time the Pale Skinned Demon walks the world once again.
• Astitva Kī Baṛhata:
♛General and Natural Skills♛
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.• Shadow Movement:
This is what some MIGHT call the Demon's Answer to flash step: Shadow Movement. It allows them to move at quick burst of speeds on most occasions to allow them to travel very far distances in short amount of times, that is for certain. Though, this is where some similarities come to an end. Unlike most other races, Demon's get many nifty benefits then just Super Speed. Take this for example: from the seals on a demon's legs and feet that generate insane amounts of energy from all of the sources of power they collect; it will be able to give yourself temporary boost of intense speed called "Shadow Burst". Shadow Burst is a period of time where your demon will double their speed on average if they are at least adept. It will transition into how fast their attacks are created or launched, the demon's reaction time to increase the odds of evading, countering or noticing a person, object or anything else within a vicinity that has a prense in order to do something about it, it increases their mental awareness to more alert levels and it even goes into their natural powers.
For instance, one could use Shadow Burst together with The Art Of Demon Magic in order to create burst of accelerated healing in order correct injuries to your body at insane rates of speed during this period. Another example would be using Shadow Burst mixed with Za Koa in order to consume an area within it's presence much more quickly along with all of it's sub-abilities being accelerated. Finally, one last example would be for their special powers. For instance, if a demon could control fire they could generate, fire and reload it at double the speed they could before if they were adept. And, with that, that goes into their rates of speed in which they can perform these things.
If you were a beginner, you could only maintain this for one post only and would have a five post cooldown. Go to the next level and a demon will be able to double their strength, increase the amount they maintain this form to three posts and they typically only have a three post cooling period. Progress pass that to advance and a demon will be able to main this form for four post, triple their effects and will have about a two post cooldown. Along with that, at this level, they gain a new ability to Shadow Movement called "Force Speed" where they are able to effect the area around them on some levels. This includes being able to speed up objects, increase allying forces speed somewhat or even increasing the force of wind around them to do more critical damage.
From that point, if one should become a master in this, they will obtain a five post limit for how long they can maintain it, quadrupedal the effects and only have a one post cool down period. Additionally, the Force Speed technique they learned before will become much more widespread. Now, instead of the immediate area around their body, it will be able to effect more large scale areas. Take this for thought. A Demon who is a Master in Shadow Step will be able to generate vicious storms of gust that can cut through steel, and on a more extreme level, spiritual based attacks. This is something which could be used for offensive means by cutting up energy attacks, slashing down Kidō or even creating thousands of small burst of energy to cut right through some energy based moves. Lastly, the last thing they gain from having a master in Shadow Movement is that they have the power to suck the speed right out of some things. For instance, within a small field, a demon could zap the speed clear out of an attack to make themselves faster, their attacks faster or even break it down into energy to apply to other areas until it burns out in one post or two such as physical, spiritual or whatever else have you.
Lastly, and the more rare case, is Grand Master. If a demon should have possess a Grand Master in Shadow Movement, they will quintuple the effects of this move, they will have NO cool down period; they will simply rely on how much their body can tolerate and all effects before will be increased. Now, Force Speed has increased to the point where it is able to be performed on a devastating scale. It is no longer confined to a small fighting area or somewhat large area; it can expand upwards of two miles in some cases in order to form domes of Force Speed. Within this area, with their Force Speed, they can utterly decimate and destroy objects on a microscopic scale with it; rather it be physical, spiritual, natural or unnatural. Though, this gets harder to perform the larger you make it and makes a demon burn through more resources.
Additionally, at this point, they even gain a power known as "Phase Speed" where they generate an insane amount of Speed Force around their body that they are able to simply phase through solid and sometimes spiritual objects. For instance, a Demon Could use Phase Speed to simply fade through rocks, water, fire or even through the Earth itself until they reach the core of it. Along with that, if it's spiritual or energy wise, they can even phase through certain attacks if they are more powerful. So, to put this in prospective, if an energy attack didn't have enough force to rival a demon's power, they would use Phase Speed to simply blow pass it unharmed in some cases. Phase Speed can even be used to propel Demon's through Astral Planes, cause them to go through dimensional warps or even create their own small wormholes that can be used in combat to surprise an opponent.
Now, with those powers aside, the demon's gain one final benefit from Shadow Movement that is related in the origin of their name. Whenever a demon is placed within an area of darkness or shadow's, these skills will typically double in strength. They'll even have the ability to travel through a shadow world and come out of different shadow's throughout many different realms, worlds and universe's even on Master Levels. This makes it extremely hard to detect demon's in some instances if they figure out a way to bring out this shadow realm's presence to the field once they reach advanced level. Therefore, it is highly wise to never fight a demon at night as they can quickly gain the upper hand with this set of abilities.• Demon Magic:
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 Rakshsa 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. • Reality Warping:
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.• 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. • 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. • Black Inferno Blast:
Black Inferno is a massive burst of destructive energy a demon can unleash if they have Adept or higher on Za Koa. It starts by gathering energy from Za Koa along with the Demon's Blood and any type of darkness. From there, it will form into a ball of darkness that can be used to unleash serious damage upon anything it hits; resulting in a black explosion that is similar to a cero in destruction and can be broken down like a bala as well. Though, unlike a cero or bala, The Black Inferno Blast does alot more then just simply explode. When it explodes, if trapped within the blast, the opponent will begin to feel extreme amounts of heat generating from their skin; so hot, in fact, some believe they are actually on fire from the strain on a person's will. However, this does more then that. That's simply the sign of a dangerous demon parasite entering a person's body. If a direct contact is made or even partial contact, there will be a strong rush of parasites, demon magic and Za Koa's force entering a person's body. From that point, over the course of five post if there was a direct hit or three for a indirect, this will begin to heavily tax an opponent. It will force them to drain extreme amounts of energy until they are somewhat weakened, slowed or damaged if they are unable to extract it from there bodies.
Along with that, if they get hit enough with Black Inferno Blast they even run the risk of dying if it begins to suck the life energy out of them if there is nothing else to extract. The effects also vary from level to level. Adept Za Koa users will be able to do all of the above, while the higher you go, the more quickly, effective and longer the effects will last along with doubling in strength for each skill increase. Therefore, it is highly wise to stay on your toes when a demon opponent is firing this Black Inferno Blast. It could be your last time doing so if you fail to separate this from a regular energy type attack. •Akuma Kyodo:
Thanks to the full body seal most demon's have on their bodies from birth, Akuma Kyodo gives most Demon's a layer of defensive skin that is similar to an Arrancar's Hierro. This will be general defense, though if have a high Za Koa Skill, you can temporarily double your defense. Masters can do it for ten post, Advanced for seven, adept for four and beginners for two. All come with a three post cooldown. But that's where the similarities end, and the differences begin. What makes a demon's Akuma Kyodo: so different? Well, for instance, this layer of skin is not just applied physically like Arrancar's are or any other races natural defense. What makes a demon's defense stands out is that it applies to magic, spiritual attacks, their environments, how resistant they are to poisons or toxins and even how much their mental state improves.
You see, thanks to having so much magic being pumped into their bodies, their defense is MUCH more wide spread then any Shinigami, Arrancar or even Iramasha. Basically, the higher your defense is, the most attacks, barriers or ANYTHING in general; the more resilient you are to anything offensive being thrown at you. So a demon's Akuma Kyodo: is not something to scoff at, ignore or consider the same.• Natural Speed:
Against weaker foes such as the fodder of the demon kind Bid'Daum has shown the capability of keeping up with their Shadow Movement
with his natural speed. While impressive at that level against those of his own strength or even slightly weaker its a different matter. Bid'Daum is generally able to keep up with those around the same capabilities of himself when in the base state of his natural being, as well as Dāgī Tvacā; Sīmaka Javānōṁ.
Where Bid'Daum does shine when it comes to natural speed and talent is his blade. In combination with his physical strength, and the properties of his blade, Bid'Daum wields said blade as effortlessly as swinging a feather through the air. This allows him to obtain surprising feats with such a large weapon, such as replicating skills he has witnessed Shinigami utilize in the past, such as; Senmaioroshi (Thousand-Page Wholesale)
.• Natural Strength:
In his base state Bid'Daum has displayed feats of physical strength that most would not expect from one his size and build. Not only has he shown the ability to cut down a skyscraper with his blade, he has also shown that he can lift large boulders with a single hand, bring down the wall of a building in a single punch, and even form a large crater or even a fissure when his blows impact the ground. One of the most gruesome feats of strength Bid'Daum has shown in battle was piercing a foot soldier with his finger tips before tearing them clean in half, also known as Kagamibiraki.└ Kagamibiraki (鏡開, Mirror Opening):
Several times in combat Bid'Daum has shown the capability of tear a foot-soldier clean in two with just his bare hands. Upon of learning of a technique in Shinigami Hakuda
where they essentially did the same thing through sheer physical strength Bid'Daum decided to actively utilize the name for what he was doing.• Weapon Skill:
Bid'Daum has shown skillful usage of his giant sword, being able to wield it with incredible ease. He has a very aggressive style, putting an emphasis on offence and completely crushing his opponent. In the past he managed to slice through a foes arm, without cutting it off completely, before the latter even realized what had happened, showing great precision and skill. Bid'Daum can also launch powerful Za Koa & demonic energy
based slash attacks capable of causing incredible damage
.• Energy Reserves:
In his base form it feels as if Bid'Daum hardly possesses more energy than a lesser demon, or if compared to Shinigami, a low seated member of the Gotei. This is in part because he does indeed have surprisingly small reserves in this state, but is also because he suppresses his demonic essence as much as he can. When letting his reserves go unhindered Bid'Daum's energy levels feel more like a newer Shinigami Captain, or other beings of such a level. The main reason behind such reserves is that this particular Rakshasa has the majority of his power sealed away in his tainted skin.• Naraka Rēlagāṛī (नरक रेलगाड़ी, Hell Train):
Naraka Rēlagāṛī is a technique created through the combination of three demonic abilities. These abilities being; Demon Magic, Reality Warping, and Za Koa. Through the combined use of these abilities Bid'Daum is capable of summoning a portion of his layer into any dimension he is present in, as long as said dimension isn't sealed off from access. Although this technique greatly taxes Bid'Daum both mentally and physically it does also provide him with the benefits of being present within is layer of Hell. In addition to receiving the benefits of being on his natural turf this technique also allows Bid'Daum to expose living beings to any portion of his layer that he wishes, whether it be the most dangerous of areas or the most luxurious. This technique can only be used once per thread, and can only be held for five posts.• Soul of the Glutton:
As a demonic soul born of great Gluttony Bid'Daum was nearly born into the role of Raksasha of Gluttony. As fate would have it he would not grow into said role for several years after his birth, developing several abilities and traits based around the Sin of Gluttony. While already having been a demon whose very soul was born of gluttony, and living a life of gluttony, Bid'Daum developed an ever greater hunger, one that can never be sated, only delayed, in addition to his abilities.
In his base form Bid'Daum, as the Rakshasa of Gluttony, is capable of sensing the hunger, appetite, and gluttony of all living beings within an area equal to four to five city blocks. At the same time he is capable of manipulating the very same aspects in said beings as long as their Willpower
is weaker than his own, though Focus
plays its own part in combating this as well.
Due to his role Bid'Daum is capable of accessing most of his Sin based abilities even when his reserves of demonic energy is at a low point. Though this is generally only a capability when he is in a large presence of Gluttony, such as a city already affected by his presence, or a village/town/city/country suffering from starvation.
When tying in his demonic essence to his Sin based abilities Bid'Daum is capable of amplifying their capabilities to a degree. Such as his presence effecting a larger area, being able to bite through sturdier materials, or even devouring a larger area of what stands before him. • Pēṭū Abhiśāpa (पेटू अभिशाप. Voracious Curse):
Pēṭū Abhiśāpa is an ability in which Bid'Daum is essentially able to create zombies
so to speak. With but a touch upon the forehead of those whom are weaker of soul and mentality Bid'Daum is capable of infecting the soul with immense feelings of starvation and hunger. The infected, if they cannot fight the effects, begin to attempt to consume anything and everything they can, even each other.
Those under the influence of Pēṭū Abhiśāpa show displays of enhanced aggression, physical strength, and biting power. While at the same time showing a loss of recognition of others, proper motor function(stumbling, etc), and self preservation.
Stronger lifeforms while generally unaffected, can still be influenced to a degree, especially if they possess weaker willpower and focus. Lifeforms of nearly equal strength can be affected to a slight degree, mostly to a point of feeling the hunger and starvation, but being able to combat it taking hold over all other thought and emotion.
Finally a strong enough burst of any kind of spiritual or demonic, or other, energy can disrupt Pēṭū Abhiśāpa; generally this would be from those who have enough spiritual/demonic/other energy to posses a release form(3-1 and higher). Though if reinforced by his own demonic essence it could take a foe of equal strength or stronger to disrupt this ability.• Matter Ingestion:
Even before becoming the Rakshasa of Gluttony Bid'Daum displayed the ability to consume substances and materials that most would not be able to, or at least would have a hard time eating. For the most part he suffers no ill effects from things consumed, although strong enough poisons, energies, or opposing energies(angelic for example), could have differing results. Some things Bid'Daum could suffer as a result of devouring harmful things are; Weakness, sometimes to the point of as tier drop if the substance is harmful enough. Sickness, such as throwing up, dizziness, headaches, etc. Damage, such as damage to organs, the throat, etc. Or simply nothing but some gas. └ Enhanced Bite:
While capable of eating almost anything in existence... it usually helps to have jaws and a set of teeth capable of doing so. And a set of teeth Bid'Daum certainly has. Capable of tearing through flesh and bone, concrete, and even steel, he is able to consume most things found in the world. When further reinforced he could even chew through other things like energies, elemental constructs, kido, etc; given they aren't something that would have already threatened him physically. • Infinite Digestive System:
Being able to consume anything is useless if you have nowhere to store it. As the Rakshasa of Gluttony Bid'daum developed a digestive system that can consume and house a near limitless amount of material and energy. One could almost say he possesses a pocket dimension for a stomach, one that he has perfect control of. As long as he can eat it Bid'Daum can store anything in his stomach, regardless of size. └ Expel:
As a result of having perfect control over ones digestive system, as well as ones body, Bid'Daum is capable of expelling anything consumed from his body. This can be done pretty much however he wants, choosing whether or not to use whatever is being expelled as a weapon. Being able to expel things as quickly as one wants makes this an oddly useful ability in battle.
For example; Bid'Daum could consume his own blade before expelling it at velocities rivaling most energy based techniques. Or he could consume a large amount of material before launching it into the sky, or even atmosphere if enough energy were put into the expulsion. Or he could even simply use his own gut for storage if he wanted.
Such is the capabilities of his digestive system and expulsion that Bid'Daum could great a meteor shower from large debris launched into the atmosphere, although such a thing may take some time as the debris would then have to fall from the atmosphere. • Roar of the Pale King:
In ingesting the multitude of blasts sent his way by Chiyoki Bid'Daum discovered just how much energy those 30 blasts contained. Knowing that even with his infinite digestive system even he had limits to how much energy he could devour at once and contain. Therefor the only option was putting the energy from those blasts, each capable of the same destructive power of a #60
Hadō, to immediate use.
With his chest puffed out, and his cheeks expanding Bid'Daum would let out an glass shattering roar powered by the very energy Chiyoki had just tried to blast him with. The roar(in this particular case) would devastate not only anyone standing in a large are in-front of Bid'Daum, but also the environment as well. Because of this the landscape before Bid'Daum would be torn asunder, huge chunks of debris sent sailing with the sound-waves in addition to the hailstorm of smaller debris. By the time the horrendously powerful roar was finished the landscape before Bid'Daum would resemble a trench left by quite a large meteor if it were to hit the ground and continue traveling forward for some distance, except it would appear as if the meteor grew smaller before coming to a halt at Bid's location.
Normally the Roar of the Pale King emits a powerful roar in a moderately sized cone from Bid's position, the sound-waves damaging anything they can reach before being diminished. Generally the size of this cone is 20-25 feet at its widest, and roughly 1-2 feet at Bid's position, although in the first instance of use the size of the cone was easily 20 or so times larger given that the roar was essentially powered by 30 level 60 Hadō.
In the first instance of usage, due to the sheer power behind the roar, Bid' easily suffered damage to his throat and mouth, which was evident by the black ash-like almost liquid substance he expelled afterwards. As such it can be assumed that repeated uses of the technique can continually damage the tissue of the throat and mouth, although on a normal scale it may take a few successive uses to begin doing the amount of damage the first use caused in one go. Further more it can be assumed that successive usage at a more powerful level could potentially shred not just the tissue of the throat and mouth, but also destroy Bid'Daum's neck completely via shattering the spine as well as obliterating the neck muscles.
In his base state, at a normal level of usage, Bid'Daum can safely use the Roar of the Pale King roughly four times in quick succession(same post). Generally the reserves of his base state and his own physically durability allow a normal use of the technique up to six times before moderate to severe damage occurs. As such if he were to use it six times it'd be safer to wait and allow the damage to heal than continue utilizing the Roar.» Demon Sword: Zar'roc:
Zar'roc, a blade named in the ancient language Bid'Daums own name is derived from, is a large zweihänder matching its wielders own color scheme. Created through a combination of Bid'Daums own demonic energies, and demonic magic, the blade that would one day be known as Zar'roc was dubbed a demonic weapon. As it was created through his demonic energies this allows Bid'Daum to effortlessly wield the blade, beyond it just being an extension of his body.
Receiving its name through the very destruction it & its wielder created, Zar'roc was named for the misery it had caused with its presence upon the battlefield. As previously mention Zar'roc is a word from the ancient tongue that Bid'Daums own name was derived from, though unlike the name Bid'Daum Zar'roc possesses a meaning. In the english tongue the zweihänder is known as Misery.
With a blade length longer than the usual zweihänder Zar'rocs double-edged blade gives Bid'Daum an additional reach advantage. The blade of Zar'roc comes in at a length of six feet, and while only three inches longer than the average zweihänder Zar'rocs blade allows Bid'Daum to pressure his opponents further. The silver blade possesses a dull grey, spiked, cross-guard that gives its wielder ample protection from a blade traveling down the length. The handle of the blade is roughly six to eight inches in length, and wrapped in white cloth.
Through the means that crafted it Zar'roc was imbued with a couple abilities of its own. Said abilities are as follows;• Demonic Essence:
As a blade forged from Bid'Daums own being and demonic magic the blade known as Zar'roc came to possess its own demonic essence. When not by Bid'Daum side sensors were able to get a proper reading on the blade, discovering it possessed a large pool of demonic energy, easily enough to dwarf the reserves of a young demon. Over time it was discovered by Bid'Daum himself that this blade also possessed a portion of his gluttonous soul, granting it a single ability based upon the sin, one based around the demons ability to devour almost anything.• Ka Upabhog (का उपभोग, Consume):
Similar to how Bid'Daum can devour most substances and energies, the blade forged from his own energies and demonic magic inherited a similar ability. In the case of his blade Bid'Daum calls its ability Ka Upabhog, or Consume in the English language.
Zar'roc, when this ability is active, is surrounded by an aura of white demonic energy that is littered with what appears to be millions of gnashing, gnawing, biting, mouths. When an object or being is cut by the blade while this energy surrounds it the result is a wound that looks less like a cut, and more like the material in the space simply vanished. As a result a wound from Zar'roc in this state is substantially harder to heal as one would need to create new flesh, bone, muscle, etc in the wounded area.
However unlike Bid'Daum Zar'roc has no way to store, nor expel that which is devourerd by Ka Upabhog. As such Ka Upabhog takes time to break down that which it consumes, and covert it into demonic energy to resupply its stores. Resulting from this Ka Upabhog can only be used for a short period of time, generally 4-5 posts if each blow lands upon something, before it takes 3 turns to convert the materials into demonic energy. After said three post period Ka Upabhog can be activated again, usually initializing as soon as its ready when in combat situations.• Senmaioroshi (千枚卸, Thousand-Page Wholesale):
Such is Bid'Daum's skill with his large blade that he was able to replicate a Zanjutsu
technique known as Senmaioroshi. Despite the size of Zar'roc's blade Bid'Daum is capable of successfully pullying off the numerous slashes required for Senmaioroshi. Within the blink of an eye the young hell demon effectively pulls off nearly one hundred slashes with his blade. Near the end of his self teaching of this technique Bid'Daum displayed his ability with a blade, and strength, by dicing a large skyscraper into numerous pieces with this very technique.• Onibi (鬼火, Oni Fire):
A technique normally practiced with a blunt weapon, Bid'Daum has put it into use with his blade via the blunt end of its handle. With a powerful thrust, or even striking motion, with the handle of the blade, Bid'Daum is capable of creating a large hole in the target. This is done through a combination of air pressure and brute strength being focused into a point. Bid'Daum can further the effect of this technique by applying his demonic energies.
