A MOST VIOLENT HERO
ENTER ERNA IRAMASHA: THE FALLEN ANGEL
I. General Stuff » Name Of Character:
Cirno Iramasha » Link To Character: http://www.platinumhearts.net/t6945-cirno-iramasha-the-frigid-heroine-0-3-updating-for-2016-semi-wipMeaning Behind Erna's Name:
The reason why her name changed to Erna is because that is her Fallen Angel Form. It's essentially a personified state of her mind's negativity infused into one being. It's suppose to take the more twisted aspects of her former heroism where she believed being savage, fighting dirty, losing herself to her own psychotic nature and pushing herself to be the strongest in order to become dominant was the way to force her heroism on the world.
It stems from a thread which occurred between her and Reigen post-Australia; and the name itself is the Feminine form of German Ernust, meaning "battle (to the death), serious business." It's why Erna first encounter against Nemain began with this line:"As for who I am? My name is Erna Iramasha: The Fallen Angel and Lost Hero. Let us have a nice and serious battle."
Since it refers to the meaning of her name and the fact that she is the embodiment of what Cirno has suppressed and worked to avoid becoming fully.Appearance:
The Appearance of Erna can take on two states; just as Cirno herself can. More often than not, many will often meet the visage of a young blonde child with hair no longer than her necks length. She'll often have eyes as red as freshly drawn blood, while her height will be no more than 4'10. Her skin may be as smooth and tender as a newborns with a pigment akin as warm as orche, or it may be as pale and dissolved as the whites of her eyes.
Alternatively, when Erna assumes a fuller sense of power and control, or deems an opponent or person worthy of seeing her evolved form; this Fallen may also shift and grow into a 5'7 form. She will have golden hair that spans down to her waist, while her bosom will become more plush and well developed. She turns into what can be assumed as a woman in her early to mid 20's by this point. And this is to signify her own spiritual progression as well as Cirno's for having found the balance to maintain this state of being fluently. General Purpose:
Erna is suppose to be the sum total of Cirno's sin and corruption. Therefore, I've designed her to be an alter ego that is capable of taking on the sins of others. So, I feel her purpose and theme is to allow other characters redemption. While, at the same time, Cirno could keep her sanity through Erna herself being sacrificed. Additionally, she'd also be a more savage protagonist then Cirno and one capable of making more aggressive, lethal and daring decisions to better deal with the sadistic minds which inhabit the Platinum Hearts Universe.
Erna is also designed with the intention of absolving, understanding, mastering and coping with sin. As these are major elements in her personality and power design which come about quite frequently. Since Erna herself is capable of cleansing spirits of all sorts of negativity, evils and sins; while at the same time she herself is a mass cluster of it and she understands the nature of foul and decency to form a more whole person. In turn, her powers reflect the core of her embodiment and seek to enforce it through Immoral Mind's power.
At the same time, she is also being crafted to further add more depth to Cirno's personality by showcasing how fractured and severed her mind is. As, over all, Erna was born so that Cirno's consciousness could be clear and so her focus and willpower could become as strong as it is now. And, for Cirno to have accepted this portion of herself was also meant to show how at peace and in control she was of both her positive and negative portions of her spirit. Ultimately paving way for a happy medium as the overall goal of her trainingBackground:
Essentially, to prove a point to Nemain, Cirno decided to release a seal placed on her mind. It contained a lot of trauma infused within her head following the Australia War. At the time, Cirno had greatly suppressed her mind to the point where she was almost deluded into thinking the world outside of the Iramasha Realm was suppose to be a carefree place. The Soul Society at the time was stable (enough) to the point where she believed that her own strength could change the world and she had entered the war for glory ultimately.
However, after taking part in her first war and seeing how her actions produced a lot of horrible results (Shisome being put into a coma despite her attempts to seal off Lilium, losing her soldiers on the field of war, seeing Moonie go apeshit, conflicting feelings towards Sagumi since she wanted to protect Shisome from him at the time and Australia ultimately ending up in a non-conclusive state after the war despite all the lost), she was put into a questionable state of mind.
One where her values were put into question, the person who she was had became uncertain and she was at a vulnerable place. Reigen then capitalized on this, broke Cirno a bit mentally and formed that persona you saw in the thread taking place. It was a manifestation of him showing how murderous Cirno could gbe when she was caught up in herself; since he had her accidently kill a few bystanders in the fight, forced her to fight him with a more serious intent and eventually had her transform into a fallen Angel.
After that clash, she eventually had to seek out treatment by the Iramasha and The Psycho Seal was made to otherwise suppress that. Since that form she took was the cluster of her mind and spirit's instability and Nemain's chaotic and maddening influence had triggered it to come out. So, by showing her that portion of her soul, she would show that while the entire essence of Cirno was not holy and right, she was trying to work from it and that you didn't have to be chained to it.
As, more than anything else, she felt they had a lot of in common and were two opposite sides of the chain. And, in that moment, she practiced what she had taught her own pupils in the act of gaining a greater control of her soul's own darker and negative portions in order to lessen the need for the psycho seal bit by bit.
And, in doing so, she was able to enhance her own mercy, forgiveness and generous nature that her child self originally tried to strive for and it turns out that her different forms all just wanted to be strong; but in their own different ways. The child Cirno wanted to be strong so she could gain fame and strength to fight against the strongest Iramasha, the matured mind of Cirno only wanted to gain power in order to change the world for the better, protect others who could not protect themselves and to become a proper Angel; and the Psycho Seal only desired to be strong so that she could assert her dominance over others, extend the reach of her child form's desire and reach a point of trying to emulate what Reigen taught her about the world and being ruthless in her own form "heroism"; since she labeled herself as "The Lost Hero" given her Fallen Angel status.
With that said, she ultimately concluded things by trying to remove the sins from Nemain's body, giving her a second chance and hugging her and wishing that she could understand before getting blown away by her final attack. An attack which had enough strength to destroy a good chunk of the moon; and managed to place burns across 100% of Cirno's body. However, in response to a calamitous event taking place, Cirno used one of her event abilities called "MIracle Break" in order to summon a miracle that would suppress the brunt of the explosion, prevent a mass lost of life event from occurring and to empower all protags by two times in the event after it's energy dissipated.
Following that, Cirno started to faint in a mile deep crater and was waiting for the medics to begin healing some of her injuries. Though, ultimately, Cirno only desired for Nemain to have her mind ever so suggestively changed. She doubted that she could ever pull her away from the alignment of antagism, but if she could manage to quell Nemain's maddening rage to the point where it was only dished out at her targets, and away form innocents, perhaps that form of mercy would be enough to prove her worth as an angel in producing a miracle of the heart and mind.
THE PERSONA OF THE FALLEN ANGEL
I. Personality Section» Direct:
For the most part, Erna is a very direct person. If she means something? She'll say it plainly and without any mysticism behind it. This is on contrast to Cirno's more refined and matured symbolic tone that she has grown into following her personal evolution. Erna prefers for everyone and everything to know exactly where she stands on the matter. If she believes you look like a sorry sack of crap? She'll damn sure let you know and tell you how to stop being such a sorry sack of crap.
This personality trait was spawned as a result of being a more direct and confrontational version of Cirno. And, since Cirno struggles with this form of bluntness, Erna is often used to dispel that and get straight to the point without much drivel and bullcrap to get in between. So many opponents, allies and family alike may find this rather off-putting in the sense that she doesn't hold back. However, if Erna is around those whom Cirno is found of, she'll often try and add a hint of niceness to it and give them the tools to correct themselves.
For example: there was an incident between her and Henrex where he was mourning the lost of his family. She outright told him there is nothing she can do about the past, but she did offer to be his sister and assist him in whatever power she had in finding those who whom he had lost. This illustrates that direct, but loving sense of nature. As, after all, she still considers herself a hero. Just a more aggressive and violent one. Therefore, if someone needs her help, she won't shy away from it and she'll more than let them know that she is helping them. » Earnest:
One can assume that Erna has a high drive of willpower and determination from the fact that she isn't afraid to aggressively throw herself into any situation. She is willing to give her all at a moments notice in order to finish any task thrown at her. This seems to stem from the fact that she feels she is a protector and a protector must be one who is strong willed, determined and resolved enough to handle anything which may come their way. As she is the anchor which keeps Cirno balanced and she will guard their body and psyche with every last bit of strength she can muster.
Although, from Cirno's giddiness, Erna is also more earnest to jump into non-combative or training situations. For example, if someone offered to teach her to cook, and Erna had a desire to do so, there is a high chance she would just leap at the opportunity and go at it with everything she had as that is the nature of Erna sometimes. Granted, she isn't like this all of the time, as there limits to ones own mental stamina and energy; but it wouldn't be out of character for her to take a high interest and drive in something if it suit her fancy enough. Strong Confidence:
It would take a supernova level explosion to dissolve the confidence of Erna. She can almost be considered the strongest state of self-assurance that Cirno possesses because of the fact she refuses to let anything corrode her belief within herself. This is because she needs to be strong for herself, Cirno and their family and all who follow behind their justice. Therefore, she feels a calling and that external force helps to amplify and intensify Erna's tenacity to near unbreakable levels so long as she knows the path to take to guide Cirno and herself to their ideal reality.
Granted, Erna is aware of it's faults as well. Anyone can have immovable confidence, but it's another to have the self-awareness to work alongside it to understand when it blinds you. Which, in a sense, makes her assurance that much stronger. As, even if Erna is outmatched, outwitted or in over her head; she has sense enough to know when to call it quits for the time being, but she will rack her mind and spirit over ways to continue and will rarely be discouraged by setbacks. As, there is no easy path to success in her mind and there will be obstacles. And, it is those obstacles which help build character and form the foundation which resolve and confidence rely upon.
As, even if everything goes to all hell, Erna has belief in herself that she will be able to endure the storm that comes. Whether the days be blissful and sunny, or filled with damnation, bloodshed and fire; she is ready for whatever will come and is ready to face it with the utmost of self-assurance in herself, in her ability and in her spirit to preserve. » Violent:
While Cirno has her moments when triggered, Erna does not spare any expense once an enemy target has been identified to her justice. She will skewer limbs, destroy organs, torture and outright kill whatever the threat is until it has surrendered, made unable to fight or is terminated. Being that she grew out of Cirno's mind, Erna knows every bit of what Cirno is capable of doing and enforces her potential to the greatest extent of her ability.
This violence comes from the fact that she sees the world as nothing more than savage beast ready to be slayed at a moments notice. She's seen how the world operates, how cruel it can be and how she must protect herself, Cirno and their justice in order for anything to be done about it and to change it. After all, there is little doubt that the world would show her mercy: so why should she? As, more importantly, Erna represents the aggressive and cut-throat nature which The Angel of The Ice consumed herself within following the Australia Arc. And it is that nature which she believes gets things done when Cirno herself cannot handle the task.
Since, more than anything else, Erna often is summoned or takes control when she needs to handle a dirty job. Whether it be a truly sadistic opponents, demons or just having to put the final kill into something; this violent hero will do what it takes to make sure that desire is done and she won't hold back punches while doing so. Anything less and she feels she would have fallen short of what she was born and designed to do. Sure, it may be extensive at times as she isn't afraid to create collateral damage, but this Fallen Angel believes that someone must do what others can't and she is more than willing to bare that burden for Cirno. For she loves her and this is her savage love. » Realist:
Unlike Cirno, Erna doesn't have much optimistic or hope for the world. There isn't much to be happy about, there is a lot that is chaotic and the future only looks blacker than the void itself. Indeed, she sees the whole world as a dull, destructive and hellish place to call ones existence. It's a miserable realm and she considers it rather sub-par when compared to the wonders of the Iramashsa Realm or Heaven itself. Most of the people are disgusting, many of the villains of this world are deprived and the sense of balance is more than skewed to say the least.
However, on the flip side, that does not negate her desire to want to be a hero and uphold her demented sense of justice in the world. For while she accepts there are many things that are foul in the world, Erna still believes that angels are there to help and she feels that her foul nature is needed when more proper methods of the angel race fail. Furthermore, she still is, in essence, a portion of Cirno's ego. Therefore, it would also make sense from that prospective that she would want to continue her will even if things look more than a little grim.
She still has Cirno's willpower, determination and impulse beating within her conscious; so she intends to carry that and uphold in a more "real" manner. At least, what she considers real, anyway. It can be assumed that Erna is a rather grim and pessimistic individual, but she thrives and feeds off that despondent point of view. You can't be disappointed, caught off guard or sad if you already accepted everything is horrible. So, it can only go up until she or Cirno dies. Thus, she feels this gives her a sense of invincibility as nothing is scared, attached or bound to her thanks to what she believes she sees in this world. Everything is finite and foul, so she is free to do as she pleases because of the fact she is prepared for the worst and embraces it. » Jovial:
Now, while Erna has all these wonderfully violent and aggressive traits, that doesn't mean she is some depressive harpy whose only goal in life is vengeance and bloodshed. No, no. Erna is actually quite the happy and lively indivdual to be around; both in the middle and outside of combat. When not in some kind of battle, Erna seems more relaxed and very nonchalant about a lot of matters. She doesn't care what kind of problem people have, she doesn't care how dire or grim circumstances are and she certainly doesn't care about proper etiquette; all she cares about is having a good time and extracting pleasure from life. So she likes to shake people up, drag them out of their shell and see how they respond to her rather upfront and very cordial behavior.
Though, in battle, this turns a bit more grim. For instance, she isn't above laughing, taunting or playing games with her opponents while in the middle of a fight. To this extent, there also seems to be a sadistic trait to the woman as she likes to see the pain and fear in their eyes when fighting against an opponent. If she can't get that, then seeing them get irritated or upset does the trick as well.
An instance of this occurring took place during her match against Nemain Calliope during Shadow Fall's invasion of the Vanguard's moon base. When this encounter took place, Erna was noted as making jabs, insults and laughs at the expense of Nemain. The reason for this is because she was pleased to finally see her beginning to lose her cool after doing much of the same to Cirno. So, she had more than enough amusement in throwing her weight around and extracting a karma based sense of justice on The Espada because of the fact she felt she deserved for all the sickening acts she committed.
So, this can both be a positive and negative trait in Erna's disposition. It is good because she can easily insert herself into any social circumstance and not feel the least bit out of place. While, on the more extreme side, one can assume she has psychotic and sadistic traits when more of her violent nature begins to come out during combat. Guarding:
This entity did not come into creation by chance or by random. No. Erna was made with a purpose to protect the depth of Cirno's happiness. The base of The Fallen Angel simply wishes to protect the innocence, naivety and essence of Cirno's pure spirit. Even in Erna, this beauty of a child-like glow is still ever so faint. To remember those days without worry, without stress and without pain; they seem like a distant past, but it was HER past as she IS Cirno, but in a different light. So, with this prospective, Erna understands that reality does not measure up to these sublime memories. However, Erna is ok with being the crux and foundation that The Angel's confidence, will and good spirit can stand on by carrying this realistic outlook for Cirno
It does not matter if she will be looked at as a killer, savage or someone not befitting of the title as Angel. No. Erna only cares about saving herself and allowing Cirno to live without that guilt and worry of those she has killed, those who she has wronged and the mistakes of her past that pile on like an endless tidal wave of heartache. For it is that pain which makes her powers so potent and why she fights so hard to prevent others from having to turn into the foul monster she considers herself to be.
For while she was initially thought of by Cirno as a scary monster that should be suppressed, locked away and beaten into submission; both Cirno and Erna have come to understand that they need each other. Erna yang to Cirno's yin; for neither cannot exist without the other. They are bind and intertwined at the core of The Angel's psyche. And, after coming to accept this, they have a better union and state of being because of it. As, more than anything else, Erna just wants Cirno to be saved.
Even if Erna herself is long pass the point of being saved, if she can just allow Cirno a new start with her desire to be a hero, then Erna will seek it out and destroy, kill and push away any and everything to keep that precious dream alive. Body by body, fire by fire and sin by sin; Erna will use these building blocks to nurse their ego back together and she'll use herself as sacrifice to make it happen. Nothing else in this whole world matters more than that. A Sense That All Will Be Right:
The mind of Cirno is one that is in a great amount of disarray. There are so many different fractions of herself that are lost, broken, changing or in a total state of confusion. These little things make it very hard for both Cirno and Erna to sometimes understand the fine line between themselves; despite being the same entity and sharing the same vessel that they call a body and mind. Yet, despite how decayed and distorted their essence and ego is, both of them understand one thing -- it will be okay.
It does not matter how strained, dismayed, busted or lost they are; they both understand that they have the strength and will of mind to overcome these obstacles. They have a higher goal, a higher meaner and a great sense of comprehension on where they are in life at this point. Even if the future turns out to be the grim view that Erna views it, they are both prepared and ready to embrace this path and Erna allowed for this feeling to blossom within them. Yet, she herself needed this feeling most of all and it helps to prevent them both from totally being devoured by the weight of their sins. This is their way to make their life work and to move on from the pain.
POWERS OF THE FALLEN ANGEL
I. UpgradesImmoral Mind
Immoral Mind can be considered a primary power of Erna Iramasha. Before getting too in depth into the power, the bases of this ability stems from the fact that Fallen Angel's are often referred to as angels who have sinned. With that much known, there is a core of "immoral" (note: Immoral Aether is what Cirno refers to it as) Aether which is activated within Cirno's body when the persona shift into Erna occurs. When it is awakened, Erna gains the power to pull into a well of power that is based off of sins.
Thus, this power set allows her to become empowered by a wide variety of sins which encompass different religions and beliefs. However, this only applies to those that have been documented throughout time. For instance, if there is no written scripture to refer to, then Erna is not able to otherwise manipulate it and bring it to life. That is one of the primary principles of her Aether in this state because it needs a source of reference in order for it to work. And, when Erna takes over, there is an in-depth library of magical grimoires stored in her mind to allow The Fallen Angel a point of reference to build upon when invoking her powers.
This is because Immoral Mind's principles rely that it take a form of pre-existing ideological premise to induce it's effects. Without that crux, there isn't a medium for Erna's mind to pull resource from and it cannot translate that into her aiblities. Thus, her Aether would not have a link to attach it and could not produce Immoral Mind's abilities or techniques.
Though, with that said, it's more important to understand each ability and technique has it's own set of different limitations. So, in order to better understand how Immoral Mind works, one must begin to view and observe it's many different abilities. Thus, in the sections below, Immoral Mind different feats will be listed out. Bodily Benefits Of Immoral MindAccess To Cirno's Abilities:
Since Erna can still be considered Cirno, it makes sense that she would have access to all of her abilities as well. In fact, Erna even considered herself to have a greater edge than Cirno when it comes to using their powers, abilities and techniques. This is because she does not hold back her punches and isn't afraid to create more lethal and disarming blows as she doesn't have the same patience or tenderness Cirno does when fighting. Hence, she is more prone to using the best of their abilities to swiftly take down opponents without hesitation. Immoral Core:
While Erna assumes control of Cirno, there seems to be an additional source of energy and Aether which brews within the depths of her body. This allows for Erna to have double the amount of stamina, speed, strength and potency that Cirno would normally have because this core serves to give them more resources and fuel to work with. Therefore, it is the reason why Erna can become so aggressive and swift with her attacks because she has more energy to burn through than Cirno would normally. When Erna deactivates herself, however, Cirno loses access to this extra energy core. Corruption Resistance:
What exactly is Corruption Resistance? Since Erna can be considered a corrupted version of Cirno, it stands to reason that the metaphysical nature of her ethereal body can resist abilities that otherwise decay, corrupt or taint her existence. She can be considered the sum total of Cirno's sin and her very essence reeks of that of a Fallen Angel. Hence. by this definition, it specifically works on a spectrum of powers, abilities or techniques which corrode Erna or Cirno.
To give a better illustration of this bodily ability take Death Energy. Most owners of this energy possess a trait that allows them to corrode and rot out materials or living beings with the energy they use. In Erna's case, she could have a resistance against this due to the nature of her own body. This would not totally negate it, but there is a strong chance it could reduce the potency and effectiveness of these techniques by roughly close to half.
Sometimes more depending on variables related to the potency of the opponents attack, the amount of energy put into the attack, the amount of skill behind it, if Erna is worn down, if the opponent is worn down and things such as that can determine if this goes up or down in it's effectiveness. Sin's Embrace:
When Erna is in the presence of sin, in context to her libraries of various religions stored within her minds grimoires, Erna gains a sense of mental, physical and energy enhancements. Mentally? She'll feel more aware, awake and process things faster because of the fact she is in the presence of her powers nature. Additionally, her body will be able to siphon this abstract energy, break it down and convert it to Aether so she can improve her stamina and release rapid attacks. And, lastly, her speed and strength will be slightly improved as any excess energy is converted down into physical augmentations.
However, these improvements cannot be stacked; nor can they be repeated in the thread. For example, it is possible for her to gain a boost after seeing the sin of murder committed in front of her, but if it keeps being repeated in a war thread she cannot infinitely loop it and stack it. She would have to find another sin taking place if she wanted to keep improving and restoring her strength. This will generally restart with each and every new thread. The boosts will also be somewhere between 3-15% enhancements based on random variables relating to the intensity of the sin. I.E. if there is only one person being murdered in front of her? Chances are she will see a two to three percent boost. Whereas, if there is a war, and thousands are being killed, there is a potential for it to go upwards of 10-15%
It's also worth noting that as she takes more damage and becomes drained, these boosts will gradually fade away from her during the course of a fight. Or, if she has taken damage, and managed to find a Sin to embrace, it can attempt to recover energy, stamina or fatigue lost or gained during the clash. Prayer Based Regeneration:
As long as Erna is still conscious, it is possible for her to activate high speed based regeneration. This is primarily obtained through her Aether and acts on the notion of her praying to the gods to forgive her sins and cleanse her. A series of mental prayers are generated within herself through vocal or mental command in order to help begin the process. Once that is achieved, her Aether will begin to rapidly restore broken bones, ruptured blood vessels, blood loss and even entire organs or limbs within the same post more often than not.
Additionally, this regeneration has a secondary ability of outright purging most external influences away from her body when it is detected by her body. This works by her aether dissolving and breaking away toxins, chemicals and other magic based influences away from her body. For example, if someone poisoned Erna with a paralysis inducing agent, she could summon her Aether and attempt to expunge the foreign substance away from her body in order to stand and begin moving again. These can apply to metaphysical or physical toxins so long as she can still think and summon energy.
However, like anything else, there comes a point where it stops. And, with that said, this prayer based regeneration is reliant on Aether more than anything else. Therefore, when that resource is drained, so to will this regeneration's extensive effects. Henceforth, Erna prefers to always keep supplies of aether near her just in case she needs to heal or recover herself. Along with that, rapid regeneration can grow tiresome and it is still in her best interest not to waste precious resources trying to restore herself. As there is more she could be doing with her energy then trying to recover her wounds during combat. Aggressive Aura:
The difference in atmosphere that the energy of Erna and Cirno possess are two totally different beasts of nature. As soon as Erna assumes control of their body a sense of heaviness will begin to spread throughout the region. It will increase the sensation of gravity against Erna's enemies by five to ten times depending on how resistant they are against the effects of Erna's aura. It has an effect of one hundred meters and does not seem to effect those whom are allies of Erna, or those whom Erna has declared as "innocents". In fact, many of Aggressive Aura's effects can be controlled easily enough by Erna since it is a production of her willpower bleeding into the world.
With that said, the psychological effects of this aura can be immense on those around Erna. Even if one has a Grand Master in willpower, they will still feel a great sense of weight and pressure gnawing at their body and mind from the impact of this presence. While, for those on the lower end of the will spectrum, they may see portions of their willpower begin to leave them and may be persuaded to give up the fight before it begins. It is possible to try and resolve ones self against this, but it gets harder the lower and lower you are on the willpower system. As it is possible for her to make whole hordes of NPC's potentially stand down with just the feel of her energy.
Additionally, this aura can have odd effects on the weather around Erna. It can make the temperature extremely cold, or it can make it immensely hot depending on how Erna sees fit to use it. And, the sheer potency of it seems rich enough to even dissolve some attacks before they hit. This is possible because of the fact that Erna's pure essence is always in a defensive or aggressive state of being. Thus, this translates into her aura and it is always working to burn away attacks before they have a chance to hit or harm Erna.
For instance: it would be possible for the Aggressive Aura to potentially try and weaken a bolt of lightning shot off by Erna by disrupting the flow of electricity within it's bonds and having it scatter away from Erna. Or, in another illustration, it could be used to burn through a mist of poison passively without Erna having to use some of her more active abilities. As it would have the purifying effects of her angelic aura amplified to a great degree and intensified by the heat of power from Erna's energy.
With all that said, a lot of these effects will more than likely lessen as she gets worn down in a fight and may cease once she is tired or heavily injured.Vessel Reflection:
Vessel Reflection is the bodily ability which helps to enhance Erna's power and abilities if she needs to reach deeper into the world around her. As, most Iramashsa gain their powers not from themselves, but from the existence around them. With that said, once she begins to grow her halo and wings, Erna will often use these as a form of antennas to pick up the metaphysical frequency of holy energy blessed by various gods of lore and religion.
This works by the fact that Erna is performing a form of imitation of an angel. They often revealed as messengers of god throughout more lore. And, even though she is a fallen angel, Erna still classifies as a messenger of god by her connection to Cirno. Hence, through this ethereal protocol being reached, Erna is able to call upon more of this holy power to increase her power and potency.
If the wings and halo are formed at the start of a combat post, then she will effectively be at 130% of her power. Essentially, that would simply mean she is in a state of overpowered existence and her attacks will pack more of a punch. If they are formed later in the thread after taking damage and fighting, then it's possible for her to regain 30% of her health and energy when these appendages are formed around her.
In either state, the area of effect and quality of her attacks may go up by a measurement of ten to twenty percent. This means her energy will be in a more enriched state and harder to dispel. Which translates to the fact the opponent will need more force, effort and focus to combat her when she forms these holy appendages. She may also be able to release rapid fire attacks of more powerful abilities, techniques and magic while in this state as well. Although, this does not negate the amount of energy it drains from her. It merely lessens the strain and drawbacks to an extent of her body being able to handle the stamina required for it. Abilities Of Immortal MindSin Awareness:
Sin Awareness is an ability of Immoral Mind that allows Erna to perceive most sins taking place within a city wide area of effect. These act as extra eyes and allows her a greater scope of awareness depending on where she decides to focus her attention. For instance: it would be possible for her to observe a couple indulging in the act of sex, or she could peer into a dark alleyway to see someone trying to commit the act of murder.
No matter what it is, the requirement for this ability is that they must be committing some kind of sin in the context of any recorded religion stored within Immoral Mind's database. Additionally, she may use her sense of energy detection to try and better refine what she is looking for. As, at any minute, a countless number of sins can be taking place at a time. So she looks for abnormalities in the air and tries to filter out useless noise when searching for a specific target. She tries to remember the look of their face, the feel of their energy and uses the power of her mind to try and speed through these analytical processes.
Lastly, this ability can be used as long as she has at least five percent of her overall energy since it is primarily used for sensory purposes. Hence, why it has such a large range of effect as it doesn't do much more than that. Sin Forgiven [Plot/Story Ability]:
Sin Forgiven is the ability that Erna possess to absolve others of their sin at the cost of taking them on herself. For example: if a man had murdered, but tried his best to repent and make up for the sins, Erna would have the ability to ease his mind of them. This would result in mental traumas being subdued, while the potential for blessings could occur. These blessings could include the bestowal of a new power, the erasing of a sickness from their body, curses being undone and things of that nature.
The primary requirement that is needed is that they simply must work to undo their negative karma in the universe. All Erna needs to know and observe from them is that they are trying to fill the world with more positive actions and she will activate this ability if the other party is accepting of her offer. Additionally, when this transferal takes place, the sin is stored within her mind and spirit and may manifest itself into a weapon, technique or potential new ability.
For example, Erna may be able to to unlock an ability which allows her to feel the murderous intent of others by absorbing the sins of a murderer for her own. This could allow her to try and discern whether or not someone is genuinely going to murder her from the knowledge of this sin being turned into a power. Although, this is primarily all done in the effort to prevent others from becoming as lost as Erna herself. As there is a desire within her to change the paths of others who walk a similar road as herself and to help them not to find this source of hell. Weaponized Sin:
One of the abilities that Erna possesses while she is in control is the fact that she can create weapons that are based around sin. In fact, she can even create these while in a thread or during combat. However, there are some protocols which must be achieved before they are created. One of the first is that these weapons can come in the form of her index of religions addressing any sort of passages, writings, commandments or sayings based around sins.
The second protocol needed is that when Erna is able to visualize the weapon, it MUST be in the form of a weapon. Whether that be a sword, knife, gauntlet or whatever else have you; one of the conditions to use this ability is that it cannot be free-range. Thirdly, most of her weapons that are made in thread will often stick to one or two abilities to prevent it from overloading the weapon. If it is made outside of a combat thread, then it is possible to add more effects to it as she would have more to refine and improve the craft of her weapons.
Weapons that are made in thread will generally only last a finite amount of time until they are damaged. It is when weapons are given a name, a definite purpose and time to be reinforced that they last forever in the sense that they don't disappear. As, after five to ten post, it is possible for the weapon to degrade and disappear if Erna does not have time to reinforce it. Hence, why she prefers to usually try and create them out of thread.
Additionally, most weapons need to be within her range of power. For instance, it isn't possible for Erna to create a weapon that destroys entire planets in the blink of an eye. However, Erna can create something on the spot like a sword which feeds off the power of wrath and becomes empowered when in the presence of someone who is under this sin. Or she can create a shield which casts away the influence of sin in order to either negate or lower the strength of different attacks with the intent of sin behind them.
Furthermore, Erna must be at at least thirty percent of her overall health and energy in order to use this ability. And, usually, there is some sort of mental calculation needed in order to assure the structure, stability and core of the weapon is functional enough to be used. As converting immaterial thoughts into tangible objects is something that can be an exhausting affair for most beings. Which is why it can also be taxing on her energy if it is abused. The Abstract Of Sin:
The Abstract Of Sin can be considered a reality bending power. The reason for this is because of the fact that it alters the existence around Erna based in context of her religious lore on sin. However, there are a few protocols needed in order to summon it. One of the first is that an identifiable threat must be observed by Immoral Mind. This is required because The Abstract Of Sin will not activate against non-sinners. So, Erna may have to observe the opponent for a few posts before it activates.
The second protocol needed to activate The Abstract Of Sin will more than likely need to be a prayer. This can be done mentally or vocally, but incantations work the best because it works in a similar manner as a kido in the fact that it becomes further empowered when the words are spoken into reality. And this is because the third protocol required for Abstract Of Sin to work is a projected and plotted course of action. By this, Erna has to mentally configure and determine the usage of her reality bending so that it stays in relation to the sinner and the sin they are committing or the sin she is summoning. For if it strays from that path, and goes off something which is not related to her power, then it will backfire and injure Erna.
Fifth, Erna should create and produce an object in relations to the religious sin she is referring to when activating The Abstract Of Sin. For example, if she was taking a sin from Christianity, then a cross would suffice in this example because it was creating a medium for The Abstract Of Sin to summon and reflect it's power. These protocols are put in place in order to better manage the vast extent of Erna's reality bending and to better allow her to invoke them without wearing herself down heavily from the first usage. As it becomes an immensely abstract ability -- if used with the proper knowledge and application.
For example: she could input the values of what constitutes a person as a sinner from the index of Christianity and transfer that knowledge into the particles of her aether energy. After creating a cross in front of herself, making a prayer to the christian gods and calculating the projected course of action to take with this reality bending; Erna would be ready to summon The Abstract Of Sin. From there, both Immoral Mind and The Abstract of Sin would trigger and attempt to spread across a twenty meter radius. And, in that radius, Erna could potentially prevent people with the sin of murder from encroaching upon that terrority without taking some form of mental damage, physical injury or lost of their energy.
In this illustration, for the sake of convince, one can assume she has had time to observe the person and she could account for the sins they've committed. In this way, she could inscribe that fact into her altered reality and have it punish the person for having partook in those sins. This could result in broken bones, 5-10% of their energy being drained or the opponent could outright feel mentally deterred from trying to approach the holy area altered by The Abstract Of Sin. However, it is possible to still try and enter ICly as this isn't absolute. An opponent could attempt to lessen the damage by protecting themselves with a HIGH powered barrier, or they may have the durability needed to force themselves through. And, if a person hasn't a omitted an identifiable sin, they can potentially bypass it as well. There are ways around the ability if one can think abstractly enough.
With that said, some of the limitations of Immoral Mind are in the fact that it is contained within a radius of ten to one hundred meters. Although, these perimeters may alter and change in accordance with her release forms of augmentation boost. Additionally, she is only able to perform one or two reality distortions per post and they take up some energy. So, while there is no cool down, in character Erna would try to avoid using it back to back if possible. Furthermore, it isn't perfect and be countered if the opponent knows what they are dealing with. And, those who are holy or without sin will have a resistance against this ability.
