Arianda Vael» Link To Character: http://www.platinumhearts.net/t15912-arianda-vael-approved-3-4?highlight=Arianda+Vael» Upgrading:
I will be upgrading Arianda to a 2-5 due to her thread with Mana in which mana had increased her power via, to put it bluntly, lewd methods. She will also be getting a few new abilities due to her now having Death Energy in her abilities. She will also get the new demon states that come from being a tier 2. Skill that could be added/redone:
Body Manipulation: Before Arianda had started to train with Mana, she had never used Body manipulation. But, ever since then, she has gained to like it quite a lot. She also gained proficiency rather quickly, learning how to change her shape into that of another she's seen, create "eyes" that were able to see all the time bound to Arianda's conscious constantly, and generally altering her body by forming tentacles, making her skin steel, etc.
Constant Awareness: The eyes that Arianda can sprout inside of herself and from herself allow her to see everything around her at all times. They are basically mini-consciousnesses strewn all around her body. They allow her to anticipate attacks as long as she can see her enemy/opponent. However, if she can't see them she won't be able to as easily anticipate the attack.
General Increase to Abilities: This new Tier has given Arianda increased everything. It has augmented her strength, dexterity, and the like. Allowing her to lift more, and dodge more. In the case of her strength, her newfound power has slightly boosted how her body can handle and tolerate weight and her overall muscle density has changed without visual effects. When it comes to dexterity, Arianda's newfound power has allowed her to become a little more nimble, letting her move energy through her body and to dodge how she wishes.
Adjustable demon States (3 & 4 ):
Name of Demon State 3: True Destruction
Appearance (picture to be included when, and if, I find one)(3): Whenever Arianda releases this altered form, she loses all clothes that were present, if any clothes were present. She only appears naked for a single moment, not long enough to get a good look though, before crimson red energy bursts upwards, covering Arianda entirely.
When the energy fades she can be seen, about as tall as she was before, about 6'1", with the same crimson energy covering her legs only partially. They wrap around the middle of both thighs, around her knees, and around the upper parts of her calves. The same red energy covers Arianda's backside as well, since it connects to a part that covers the back, which wings and a tail come from. These wings don't cover the same span as before, but they're the same height as Arianda. However, these wings, well, they can't be used to fly. They have many applications but flying. But, from these wings, at the bottom tips, the crimson energy, which does look like blood, seems to be constantly oozing from the wings. Above the wings Are basically looks like a giant collar. It spikes up from her back and the spreads out. A couple of what appear to be hooks spike from the edges, meeting the tops of the wings. Once more, this energy looks like blood. All of this crimson energy covers the skin in a way where you can't see it unless you get under Arianda.
Even then, she's still wearing clothes. Those said clothes, well, they're skimpy to say the least. The first article of clothing is, to put it bluntly, a thong. This covers her no-no zone in this form. It has leather straps keeping it in place, and those same straps also hook to a strap that leads to the bra/top. The said top that is worn in this form isn't as revealing as one would think; given the bottom piece of the outfit. Though it does show some under boob, it covers most of Arianda's breasts rather well. Of course, her breasts don't stay the same size as they were. They shrink a little, so Arianda doesn't have to deal with them in this form. The top of her clothing in this clothing has a strap coming from the right side and going across her chest to the left side of her neck. This strap then links to the straps that are holding the top. However, there are no shoes or anything on her feet, she is completely barefoot.
Seemingly covering Arianda, are chains. These chains seem to be mostly wrapped around her neck, though if someone tried to tighten them, it wouldn't work. The chains part from around her neck and each strand goes to a specific area, in a way. About three chains wrap around the area just below her shoulders, loose enough that they aren't chafing against her skin. While the chains can be grabbed, doing this wouldn't be good, since all the enemy would be doing is dragging Arianda closer in for a kill or to give them a severe injury. The chains that wrapped around her below her shoulders go to her back and snake down to wrap around her legs. The wrap in such a way that they act like a secondary skin and they do not limit Arianda's ability to move.
Of course, that's not all. When Arianda changes to this form, her hair grows shorter and changes to be silver. Coming from the hair are ears, bat-like ears. That's not all, she also gains what appear to be claws. Claws that are much bigger than her hands are but are completely linked to her being. This hands are born from her scissors, which basically meld with her when she changes into this form. The claws extend to about her elbow, upon which the material spreads out and looks as if the ends are, again, made from blood. When looking into the hands, where they are open, all that one can see is the hands are directly linked to Arianda's arm. Of course, this means that Arianda has EXACT control over the arms. The claws are as sharp as Arianda's scissors, and as durable, each finger about 8 inches long each. These claws also appear to be a shade of brown or black, about the same color as the chains.
- Warning, NFSW:
Abilities and Benefits: This form completely changes how Arianda fights, this is so that she can confuse enemies and catch them off guard.
Relenting, What's that?: When in this form, all of Arianda's attributes become three times of what they used to be. Strength? Even more powerful than before, of course, if she uses her full strength of this form, she will tire. For example, lifting up semi's or buildings. Her general reaction time, movement, and abilities have been increased to accommodate the fact that she truly does want to decimate her opponent.
Special Scissor Manipulation, Claws of the Devil: In this form, Arianda's scissors basically become one with her arms as she transforms. Since the enemy doesn't see this because of the crimson energy that erupts around her when turning into this form. However, what exactly happens is quite interesting. The scissors basically melt onto Arianda's arms, covering her hands and forearms completely. The scissors meld with Arianda's skin, creating neural links so Arianda can still feel what she does with them. In this form, the scissors are literally an extension of herself. However, this only occurs when she transforms into her third demon state. Also, any attributes the scissors had before will not be transferred, unless it is a powerful effect. At that point half of the effect will be transferred.
Blood that Boils: As states in the appearance of this form, there is much crimson energy that wraps around Arianda when she becomes like this. However, what isn't apparent is that this crimson energy, let's call it blood for now, is boiling hot. While it does not effect Arianda, those who touch it will get burned severely. Of course, the burns will be limited by how durable someone is and how resistant to pain they are.
In all basics, the blood is basically like acid, to put it simply. It burns those it touches and will burn through material or skin if left untouched. Arianda mainly will gather the blood from her wings, gathering them with her hands. She then will either leave them there to assist in damage or she will throw them in an enemies face, or at them in general. If this lands on someone they could experience immense pain. If they experience the pain they could have a hard time with avoiding attacks Arianda may put out.
Chains Carved by Death: Wrapping around Arianda are chains. These chains can extend and retract at Arianda's will if she decided to use them to attack. When she does, these chains can wrap tightly around enemies. However, they only will wrap around an enemy if they have a higher strength than Arianda does. If it is equal, they will have to struggle a lot before getting out. However, if the enemies strength is lower than Arianda's they will be bound by Arianda until they find a way to shake the chains off, whether with abilities or otherwise.
She can also use the chains to block attacks from a distance or close up. However, the chains can only block a single attack, they aren't good for blocking area attacks though. However, if an area attack does occur she can pull the chains around her to block the attack. Though her Akuma kyodo will be damaged slightly in the process, the attack won't deal as much damage as it would if she didn't block it.
Who Needs to Fly With Wings!: In this form Arianda's skill to control her Za Koa increases to the point where she no longer needs wings to actually fly. This allows her to fly as if her wings actually functioned; allowing her to move in the air freely and easily. Of course, flying like this uses much more energy than normal, so, she only will use this flight to chase enemies or travel short distances.
Rage of Satan: When Arianda is in this form, the crimson energy/liquid around her can be injected into the tip of her claws. From there, whenever she makes an attack with the claws the crimson energy can get into the wounds of enemies, or those she's struck. Given how the Crimson energy is basically acid, whenever the energy gets in a wound, as long as the wounds aren't on Arianda, the crimson energy will start to burn the flesh, causing large levels of pain and making wounds worse. However, this does not allow one to bleed out, not does it melt flesh to the bone. It is mainly meant to weaken whatever Arianda may be fighting so she can take them out easily. As stated with the description of the crimson energy from earlier, this can be resisted with high pain endurance and durability.
Death Energy is Mine to Control: In this form, Arianda utilizes her Death Energy much more than before. She can absorb it form more sources and at a much quicker pace. It also allows her to infuse her claws with Death Energy for a short time, about a thread or until she returns to normal; whichever happens first. This also allows her to use her Death Energy in more abstract ways. For example, while she has the normal shield and breakdown, all that, she can combine the two to create a shield that can cause a breakdown. Of course, combining different DE uses can take a good amount of energy, causing her not to use them often. However, if there are many to take DE from she will take said Death Energy and then use that to fuel the breakdown shield.
Catastrophe: Arianda's best attack in this
demonic state. When she decides to use this ability all of the crimson energy around her writhes in excitement, seemingly waiting for the deaths of many. When she actually uses the ability she sends all of her chains out, binding any enemies possible, catching them in the crimson energy. If they are hit with the crimson energy, the same effects as normal will be felt when the crimson energy touches them.
When the attack has been released Arianda brandishes her claws, gather Demon Magic in them to send out a wave of fire all around her. This will cause immense damage to anyone who is below her tier, high damage to those a tier above her, and those who are in 0 tier will likely take either no damage since they could avoid it. Or they will take a medium to a small amount of damage depending on their overall durability and defenses.
After this ability is used, Arianda will immediately revert to her shifter form, her scissors back to normal, her normal clothes return, and she is extremely weary. This ability is a last resort for her and she will only use it if she really wants to kill her enemy or if there is nothing else she can do. Of course, being a little evil, Arianda will sometimes use the beginning of the ability to fool people, when she actually is using it as a distraction for her to change to her fourth demon state.
Name of Demon State 4: The Truth is a Strange Color...
Appearance (4): In this state, Arianda actually remains visually the same as in her shifter form. May seem underwhelming to most, sudden shift from her third form, which is skimpy as heck, to her fourth form; the truth of her power. In this form, her appearance looks nearly like a mix of Mana's and her own, though it definitely looks much more like Arianda than Mana. In this form, her general appearance is slightly augmented to the point where she looks the same, but at the same time, doesn't.
In general, in this form Arianda reveals her true power as of current events. Her hooded cloak gains a green tinge to the edges all around the cloak. Sure, it looks like Christmas in a cloak, but, she green looks more like Mana's blood, a deathly green, black, unnerving. While the crimson of the hood gains a much darker color, almost looking like one of the darkest shades of red. This can cause the cloak to look black in certain lighting, but, in truth, it really is two separate colors. Not only that, but, from the black green, strips basically ooze down from the top of the hood, creating multiple staggered lines on the back of the hood and cloak.
Her clothing also gains a slight likening to what Mana might wear. But, it is definitely Arianda in origin. The shorts are still black, but they now extend to her knees, blades coming from the end of each leg. Though they won't cut Arianda, they definitely will cut anyone else who touches them due to the angles they are placed at. Meanwhile, the heels that she wears in her shifter form become vastly different. They become knee high, the red stripe on each shoe now stretches to the top of the knee high heel and changes from red to a more blue color. The tools that were on her right leg completely disappear, leaving nothing to replace it.
Arianda's shirt/jacket remains completely open and unzipped, her breasts, which are bigger in this form, being shown quite easily. In this form they are about C in size, though they don't exactly look it. She also stays about 6'1" causing most of her clothes to match her height. Her hair, eyes, and face are what change the most though.
When Arianda uses this form, it's basically when she reveals all the energy that was implanted in her by Mana. So, her eyes, face, and hair show it. Beginning with her eyes, the right eye changes from the crimson red it is to a dark green; while the other eye remains the same. Her hair also changes from the prominent pink-blonde hair in her shifter form, to a crimson red color, highlights of blue and green mixed throughout her hair. Arianda's face, well, it definitely looks different. It doesn't mix Arianda's and Mana's, no, that'd be weird. Instead, her face becomes much more stalwart, stiff, and, in general, much tougher than usual. In all basics it becomes a complete opposite of what her face normally is; cute and soft.
Abilities: In this form, Arianda shows the colors of her truth, what she really has become. While it may not be as interesting as her third form, it's a form she used as a literal last resort; for now.
Weapons are Deadly in These Hands of Mine: While in this form, Arianda can use any weapons she wishes, using them with even more expertise than before. It doesn't increase her knowledge of battle, it only allows her to use her scissors, or whatever weapons she is using, truthfully however she wishes. Of course, it will only augment how fast she attacks, how she attacks, the general style, and how violently she attacks opponents. It won't augment her knowledge of weapons.
The Hell Kind of Fighting Style is this?: In this form, Arianda's attack style changes vastly. She no longer throws her scissors, she barely attacks with them. As a matter of fact, she will use them for assist attack if she needs to, otherwise, she will use her fists, legs, feet, head, you name it. She will engage into brutal martial combat even if her opponent has a long ranged weapon. The best thing to do, is to keep your distance, or you may find a foot where you don't want a foot.
Adaption is the way to Survive: This ability is basically an extreme improvement upon her body manipulation capability. It allows her to adapt to whatever situation she wishes, especially if she is danger some way. For example, if someone throws lava at her, she can turn her skin into material that resists or repels Lava. However, this will only occur if she knows that it's about to happen, and with the help of body manipulation she has eyes around her body, though they can't be seen, at all times. But, she can be blindsided by those who are too fast for her eyes to keep up. If an enemy has a higher speed than her, then they can easily avoid her sight. Someone with the same speed won't be able to avoid her vision, and those with lower definitely won't be able to escape. If any of these eyes are blinded some way, she won't be able to adapt as readily as before.
Ever Heard of Death?: This ability is literal to it's name. Arianda harnesses the Death Energy around her and causes it to strike out at her opponent(s). This allows her to hit from a distance away without moving if the opponent is near something that is emitting Death Energy. Of course, this can be dodged or block if the person has the ability to see Death Energy as well or they have defenses placed to block against attacks. If the Death Energy does strike, it will cause the areas it pierced to age only slightly. While this cannot kill an enemy, it can lead to their death if they can't figure out a way to counter the Death Energy.
Playtime is Over: Arianda uses this whenever she is serious, seriously pissed that is. This ability allows Arianda to harness her body in whatever way she wishes, letting her perform attacks that she may not be able to do as quickly or as easily. However, it only augments her general attacks and overall methods of attack. This ability is also limited by Arianda's energy limits. She can use DE to substitute for energy, but only for a short time since this ability mainly depends on her innate energy.
Rage of the Gods: Cataclysm. Death. Destruction. Arianda will only use this ability with reckless abandon IF she is at the edge of being beaten. It is her true last resort attack of the last resort ability. When she uses this, her body glows with a mixture of green and red energy. The energies mix and create a sickly color. But, that Energy soon goes into Arianda's scissors, if she is holding them. If not, it will form a sword in her hands. When she strikes someone or something with this, an explosion borne from this mix of energy will erupt from the blade. While it will not damage Arianda or her scissors, but, it will cause her enemy, if she hits them with the explosion, to be thrown and severely injured. Of course, that is only dependent on their tier compared to Arainda's and the class of her abilities.
Whenever Arianda uses this ability she will immediately revert to her shifter form. While she isn't completely undefended, she won't be able to move for a good 4 posts. This leaves her vulnerable to attacks with only her Akuma Kyodo to defend her. When she is able to move again, she will not be able to fight, not even a little. This will basically force her to withdraw or be captured if it is an enemy. However, in severe cases, after the explosion Arianda can immediately be rendered unconscious, unable to do anything. If this happens Arianda will be at the will of an enemy, though she won't die, she will definitely be severely injured by any enemies who choose to attack her. Again, this is the last resort of the last resort form. She will only use it if she is pushed to the edge, otherwise, it will never be seen.
DE Force: After Mana had implanted her energy into Arianda, giving Arianda a seal with said power/energy. This allowed her to gain Death Energy control, giving her the ability to do what can be done with the energy, absorb it from corpses, breakdown, barriers, all those abilities. Of course, with her different forms she can manipulate Death Energy to a greater degree at the cost of more energy, which means she does not use such abilities often. Arianda hasn't had Death Energy for that long, so she won't be an expert at it right away, though she will have enough knowledge to use it.
New manipulation for her Scissors:
Manipulation 4; Chain Scissor Blade: In all basics, it looks like a giant chain blade. Except, the blade's are the scissor blades at each separate end of the chains. The chains themselves extend from the eye rings of the scissors which basically combine and form a sturdy place for the chains to be linked to. The chains aren't exactly abnormal, they look black and are able to resist hits from other blades since the chains are made from the same material the scissors are.
At the end of the chain, as mentioned earlier, are the blades of the scissors. The scissors seem to basically meld perfectly with the chains, so that there is no seam, no true weak point to separate the blades and chains. Arianda can use this weapon in many ways, but how she uses it normally changes depending on the situation, or if she is mad enough. Frankly, she just uses the things how she wishes.» Why:
After Arianda's "encounter" with Mana, Mana had gifted Arianda with a seal that linked a shard of Mana's energy to Arianda. This caused her to immediately power up to a 2-5. More information here: Warning, NFSW up the wall.» Extra:
Nothing extra to add, just, hope that nothing here isn't out of reach of Arianda currently.
