Welcome to Bleach Platinum Hearts RP! This is a Bleach Role Playing Forum set in the year 2416, over 400 years away from the Original Bleach's timeline. It has elements of both canon and custom for a unique mixture of role playing never seen before on Bleach. To get started, please sign up and read our starter guide:
» Association: Shadow Fall, Second Circle; Children of Eris
» Appearance Written: Ceal is a very average build, weighing in at 127lbs for a height of 5'6. She wasn't very large, like her father, but fortunately she didn't appear to be all that lanky either. Her shoulders seem to be at just the right pitch to give her a cute portrait, complimented well by her modest curves that didn't appear over or under too far in any way. While her hands were the expected medium, her fingers could be just a tad shorter than you'd think, but not too much that you'd noticed without a hard glance.
Corn silk blonde hair that falls to frame her face in loose waves, just thick enough to add some fluff around her ears and temple. Her bangs fell just short of her eyes, glowing a luminescent green.
Ceal has taken on physical features of a rather stereotypical type of demon, known as the Succubus. Still a fledgling in growing the power of her demonic alteration, she has still grown a blackened purple spaded tail, a set of elongated canine fangs, and almost invisible knots (because of her hair) on her head where horns seem to be growing from.
Also recently, her hair might seem a bit wild, untamed. It is clear that her demonization has left it's mark on her visual features as well as her less tangible features.
It's been known that many succubus have bat-like wings and can easily fly with them. Ceal has yet to show signs of developing this rather interesting trait, but it's not outside of the realm of possibility.
» Appearance Image:
Hyperactive: Ceal is a very mild mannered individual. She is generally hyper, always seeming to be in motion. In her early years many people saw it as unusual, seeing her fidgets and quirkiness as nervousness, despite that not being the case. In recent years though, she consciously works to tame herself, wondering if she fidgets too much, or sways too often. Sometimes she felt like it was a workout to contain all of her energy.
Positive: Ceal does her best to keep a positive outlook on things, always looking for the good in people, in life. She strays away from outside influences. Always desiring to experience things for herself. She likes to joke and find a way to make others smile. Despite being silly, she is otherwise fairly carefree as well.
Keen: Ceal is observant, doing her best to take in as many things around her as she can within reason. Primarily, this is typically seen when she interacts with people close to her. She can pick up on subtle changes in their mood, even when those try to hide it. She is terribly empathetic, perhaps even to a fault, typically more worried about the mental well-being of others over her own. It's not to say that she doesn't value her own state of mind, however, just that part of her rationale is to keep others in a healthy mind state as well. This is particularly seen with her demon friend, Raizen.
Empathetic: Ceal is very critical with understanding how she responds to people. At the end of the day, she usually reflects upon her interactions of the day prior. While not necessarily a mask, Ceal refrains from any powerful emotions while out in public or with friends. That is because in reality, she is very emotional, if a bit on the optimistic side of things. It doesn't take much to make her smile, or even cry, but it certainly does take a lot to truly make her sad.
Hardened: Truly, it is hard, for she has been to the depths of despair, known the sound of madness. Indeed, she had been there, and for once. She had gotten mad. So mad that the very emotion itself evolved into something different, something more. It gave her additional integrity. The mind to withstand more than it could before. The term "what doesn't kill you..." rang all the more true about this certain facet of the complexity of Ceal's inner workings.
Quirks from her Demonization: While Ceal has remained mostly the same individual from the change enacted on her from the Mark of Eris, new changes have still served to manifest themselves within her.
She's been known to be more mischievous than in the past, playing around with people, and sometimes unbeknownst to her, going too far with a prank. The natural ruthlessness from the demon race easily surfacing into her core personality.
Succubus Traits: Due to the nature in how her demonization started, Ceal has experienced the innate desire to perform various erotic acts she'd otherwise had shied away from. Her inhibitions towards these act continue to decline as they become a closer part to her everyday mentality.
“Sometimes, I look at the sky in the evening and wonder... What would it be like to fly? I've always lived with a motto I got from playing an MMO game way back in the day. Twas a title you could get. “Have Wings, Will Fly” I have always wondered the meaning to that motto, simple with only 4 words, yet so complex it could mean something so different from one man to the next. “If you have the ability to do something, you should do it” I think.. that's what it always meant to me."
"...Something special happened to me a long time ago. Something terrible happened as well. But... even so, I believe that even though they're gone away, they would want me to look forward. For them.. I will, I can't let my “wings” remain broken. They will heal, and I will take to the sky once again. "
Born in the mid west of the United States, Ceal was from a family that could be unmistakably what you'd call average. A father, a mother, a brother. They were of a lower middle class, never quite struggling financially, but never quite well off either. But alas, that is not the focus of this passage.
Having an identical twin brother was pretty much the focus of much Ceal's childhood. Rarely was she seen or spoken of without her other half. They were as close as you would imagine any twin sibling relationship to be. It was typical for siblings to have almost a “bullying” scenario where she came from, so it was a refreshing sight to see something not only out of the ordinary with them being twins, but also with them being friendly toward one another.
For lack of better description , Tryce, her brother, was most everything she was not. Stoic, strong, stable. They admittedly had very many similarities that helped define them as a duo. They were both carefree, kind, even to people who treated them badly. Each strove to learn from the other, perhaps because of that, Ceal became a slight bit of a tomboy in her early years, only growing apart within the high school era. Even then, they weren't too far off from another.
However. Something to note about the twins was that, in their early years, they both developed something only describable as “extraordinary”. Starting at the age of 11, both of them began changing, undergoing a metamorphosis that no one could describe. Admittedly few people knew of this, but only their mother would know what it was. For it was her who accepted an outside source to perform “tests” on them during her pregnancy term.
Chapter 1: We as Angels
A project called “Seraph”, spear headed by her family doctor, Dr Steven Styles, was a project that offered to test on embryotic states in an effort to create a genetically enhanced human. On the face of this program, it was said to reduce the likelihood of birth defects, symptoms of frailty or the appearances of certain genetically passed down diseases and health conditions.
However, the reality, while similar was actually much different. There had been reports of humans undergoing a natural state of metamorphosis, called “soul evolution”. So far, it was not known how or why it was happening, only that it was allowing humans to come more to terms with beings of power, such as Soul Reapers, Hollows, and other powerful races. Some say it was because of this very reason that humans were evolving, adapting to increase their chances of survival against overwhelming odds.
Dr Styles realized this and were among the first to dive into the research of genetically fabricating this on human subjects. While his practices skirt the boundaries of humans rights, many believe his heart is in the right place. Wanting to take something previously thought to be random and make it a guarantee. It was likely that Ceal and Tryce were not the first tests to be ran, but Styles did note that they were the first successful patients.
It wasn't long after their 11th birthday that Styles noticed this. Upon their visit, Styles assured them and her mother that this change was to be expected, and was actually and was actually a powerful gift, should they decide to use it. Hey confirmed that their bodies were creating the catalyst soul evolved humans were known to use. While similar to “reiatsu” it was somewhat different, stemming only from their own body, from a physical development, a “gland” for a description. This “force” gradually and subtly augmented their bodies to become just that much better than average. At first it was almost unnoticeable, but after about two or three years, they were able to out perform many peers in their grade levels at athletics with minimal effort actually put in.
Athletics aside, they soon realized that this force could influence the world around them. Ceal's manifested into electrical force. Being able to hear the hum of surging electricity through power lines, affect the currents around her, generate much higher than average voltages within her own body. Tryce's manifested quite differently, despite being twins with identical genome. He was able to take moisture in the air and cause it to freeze, effectively sapping the friction (and therefor heat) from it or things he touched. Styles said himself that it wasn't that he could make things cold, he literally took the energy from the molecules, causing there motion to slow to the point of stagnating, creating a field of “absolute zero”.
Chapter 2: We as Demons
”When they came... At first it was like we were being bombed. People panicked, fending for themselves and their families. …I could understand their fear, but maybe I was just more optimistic than they were?”
In the year 2412. A terrifying race came from the very pits of hell and brutally occupied America, the birth place of Ceal and Tryce. They were merely 15 at the time, but their idealistic views on looking for the little bit of solace they could in such a changing time was all they could do not to give in to fear like many others have. Fortunately for them, their small state of Indiana was not one that very much violence had taken place. By the demon queen's own words, those who did not oppose her could live as they would, within reason.
Naturally, Ceal wanted to this this occupation was wrong, taking a country for themselves in the human world seemed wrong. But, she couldn't help but remind herself that if they really wanted to, they could have easily taken America, and killing anyone it it. Honestly, her life didn't really change that much with their occupation. Aside from the occasional demon, one could honestly forget sometimes. You could look up at the sky and it was still blue, the grass still green.
Indiana didn't have any special laws or rules of immediate government, meaning that demons, humans, and other such races could mingle together with minimal influence from shadowfall or anything thereof. In this time, it was when Ceal met the demon child Raizen. He was a transfer student at her school, directly following the stabilization of the country. He had a kind face and, surprisingly, a kind heart. Many of her peers would look down on him or make him feel unwelcome in his time there. Noticing Ceal smiling a the indifference of what race he may be, they quickly became friends. He was the prime example that, though the world saw the entirety of the demon race as evil, they were wrong. Soon even Ceal herself wondered if Shadowfall themselves were truly evil.
Chapter 3: Nightmare on Delaware Street
Soon, before she knew it, a year had passed with the demon's occupation. Slowly they saw even more influx of demons vying to live peacefully, though some merely were curious of humans and their lifestyle. Before long, the Indiana everyone knew was no more. It had evolved into something different, borders changed and the name was changed. It was a small country now, tucked deep inside the borders of the shadowfall occupation, yet isolated on a government standpoint. Now called “Metropolis”, the city began to change slowly, life mixing more of human and demon cultures into one. Even Ceal couldn't help but be affected to a degree. She began to study about the demon race's belief on life and death, coming to understand how they believe death to be merely a transcendence from their current vessel. She found all this very intriguing, often times discussing at lengths with Raizen this subject. Ceal loved to learn about things, wanting to seek the truth, no matter how deep. To be “in the know” as much as possible. She wasn't very ignorant nor did she want to be. She believed that if she was, she would be no better than the people who foolishly threw away their lives when shadowfall first began their take over. She felt for them, but she believed their ignorance to be their own undoing and hoped that they found peace in the afterlife.
By this time, Her and Tryce were getting to be quite adept at using their powers, slowly but surely developing truly amazing ideas using what they could influence with their powers. Styles kept a close eye on them for most of their lives, even so much as to greet them on a friendly level often enough to be considered a friend of the family. Even now, he was legally the childrens “godfather” swearing to care for them, should anything happened to their parents. While it was a very human thing to note, it was merely just for fun between them all, never expecting that would actually come to pass.
None of them ever expected anything.
”I remember... it was raining heavily. So hard, in fact, that I couldn't even see it. It... it was jarring. It made me hate. It made me so angry to shield the hurt.... the pain... the sudden throbbing of longing. It stabbed me in the heart to prevent the numbness that followed.”
While there had been reports. No one ever suspected it would happen here. Coming from the west, there were news articles about a terrible band of human hating demons causing abhorrent atrocities to human cities. Unsurprisingly, Shadowfall didn't bother to make any public comments on the accusations, nor did they even give reporters commenting on the matter the time of day. Frankly, their acts of vandalism and murder were merely seen as aspects of demonic culture. While the acts appeared to be rumors, confirmation of the acts were only downplayed by other demon sources, playing off the fact it was merely childish.
Walking home in a torrential rain, Ceal was coming back from Raizen's house merely around the block and down the street. However, that was the last time she would make such a venture. Raizen had been acting strange all day, as if he were on edge. While Ceal did pick up on it, he couldn't necessarily stop her from leaving his house. Oddly enough, he was frantically pleading that she stay, using their studies as a reason she mustn't go. Not yet. Raizen knew about the nightmare that was to unfold. While he was not a part of it, there was nothing he could do to stop it, short of saving just one person, the human girl that had shown him so much kindness. That same girl who was a the center of his heart, demonic or otherwise.
”I was a demon, she was a human. But....
...So what?! Before we are anything in this world, this life, this universe, we are a soul! A soul has no ties to any race or culture, gender or otherwise. Her, in all of her silly jokes, hyperactivity, and weird clothing choices, there was something far more beautiful. It was her soul, that shone like the sun that never rises in Hell. The light among the darkness. She showed me kindness where others of her race only turned up their noses. That same smile that pierced me, straight through the cold surface of my skin, breaking the ice that hold my heart still...”
Standing in the driveway, Ceal lost her balance her equilibrium suddenly giving out. Was it shock? The sudden pang of despair? She felt as though she couldn't breathe, like the world hold still, and the air being taken from her lungs. Her parents were laid out, blood smeared their clothing as they lay under the falling sky motionless, as if the rain did not affect them. Spread eagle like an execution, they were just in front of the walk way, for all to see. Though dark, Ceal could see them, multiple shadows of darkness moving, showing nothing but the lack of color save for their eyes. They glowed in the night in a stark contrast to their shadowy bodies. Perhaps Ceal's eyes were merely playing a trick on her, but one thing was certain, the person that was in the clutches of the one in the center, was Tryce. He was alive still. He was alive, yet the words that ran across his lips told her to run. He knew that, for him, it was too late. For her, whom the demons had not yet seen, it wasn't. She could run away now. At the expense of her family, of her brother, she could run away.
Except, she couldn't. Her legs wouldn't move. While the tears mixed with the rainfall, she fell to her knees. For a brief moment, she lost herself to sadness. To the overwhelming despair.
Then, the faint sound of crackling filled the air, slightly being heard over the padding of the raindrops. Eventually, that crackling became louder and louder until finally, Ceal's scream made it to her lips. Past the denial, past the shock and the fear, past every negative emotion that was rolling their her head, it was all being shielded by one emotion. That emotion manifested itself into the surging ferocity of electricity.
However, anything she would be able to do was to be cut short. With a sharp pain on the back of her neck, Ceal became stunned. Her vision of the night sky clouded by one man. Perhaps he was a demon. She didn't know, and her confusion was stopped short because at the time, the pain of her neck, of her emotions, all began to fade. With it, her sight which could see the world as vibrantly as it was all began to fade to white. Like bad reception on a television, it felt as if her existence was fading to white.
Chapter 4: Circuit Reparation
”For so long.... I could not hear... feel.... or think,”
....But then, it all came back to me,
Waking up to a bright and blurry room. It was cold and Ceal couldn't stop the ringing in her ears. No matter what she did, plugging her ears or otherwise. That ringing wouldn't go away. Once her sight cleared up, she could realize a pair of piercing blue eyes staring at her from a chair next to her bed. Those blue eyes only belonged to one person. It was Dr. Styles.
Apparently, he recovered her body from the site and was the primary reason she was able to recover. He had rushed her into the emergency room and saw to it that she was taken care of. Ceal was in a coma for 3 years. Her life had been almost given up on. The one footing the bill, Styles, would not give up on her. Part of it was his investment into the Seraph program, the other part was he did, genuinely, care for her. She eventually came to learn that while her brother was presumed dead, shot in the head, his body was not found or recovered. She had missed their funeral, 3 years ago. Though she felt like she wanted to cry upon hearing all this, the tears wouldn't come. Instead, her eyes just burned, looking around the room. Her enhanced vision, something she self named “stargazer”, was gone. Now when she looked on, it seemed like she was watching a movie through bad reception. Seeing white noise in shadows of the room, her vision flickering occasionally if she looked around too fast. Noticing the changes, she almost had a nervous break down, the pulse detector on her body going crazy.
Styles did all he could to calm her down, stating facts about what happened to her body and how much of a miracle it was that she even came back from her coma. She was declared legally brain dead a month after her injury. Apparently the demons caused supposedly irreversible damage to her nervous system. Styles point out that they would have been right, provided that she was an ordinary human. Styles studied her condition with the knowledge of the Seraph project and waited for this day. He suspected she would awake different. She would have certain conditions, but he had came prepared. Her body had adapted to the fact that parts of her nervous system were cut, severed from the others. Most notably, at her neck, the conduit for all of her bodies functions, was cut completely. In any other circumstance, they would have no salvation of any current medical science. However, miraculously, her bodies added ability to subconsciously generate voltages caused a phenomenon with arguably no name in the medical field. Her brain was sending messages to the body using this electrical current, theoretically “bypassing” the severance. The ending result was that, while she regained her bodily functions to a slightly flawed degree, her brain could no longer reserve the energy to keep her stargazer ability functioning. While she might have the voltage required, her brain capacity was limited.
Styles predicted that outside interference would end up causing problems for Ceal's “jury rigged” system and devised a tool to cancel out the noise and interference of other forms of waves the like. Ingeniously designed like a pair of over the ear headphones (fully functional too), Styles designed them to give Ceal some comfort should she suffer any splitting headaches or ear splitting noises from the waves in the air that could cause interference. They were designed to be powered off of Ceal's own natural voltage generation, came blue tooth ready, and honestly looked pretty stylish to Ceal.
So, it was then that Ceal put on the headphones, something that would symbolize her existence for a time to come.
Chapter 5: Second Chance
Now it is current day and after being in a coma for 3 years, life is starting to get back to normal for her. The past still hurts, but even though it was so traumatic, she is unable to allow it to get her down anymore, at least not until she lays her head down some nights. Styles was good on his word, with the passing of her parents and the disappearance of her brother, he never hesitated to file for adoption, legally becoming her guardian.
Even now, even though it were demons who murdered her family and crippled her for life. She could not find it within herself to hate them. No matter who they are in this world, everyone has a choice. Every individual has a choice whether they want to do good or bad. Ceal could not, would not allow that to affect her judgment on all the members of the demon race.
According to Styles, Raizen ended up losing contact with him some time last year, but never once did he let go of the fact he blamed himself. He had tried so hard, and now he's out there, somewhere probably looking for a way to fix it all. She needed to go, find him and tell him everything. That it wasn't his fault, that it never changed her views.
In this world where hope is fleeting, in the heart of darkness, she shone as brightly as ever. Her experience may have changed her a little bit, making her just a bit more reserved. A bit sensitive and tender. But the main thing it did to her, was make her strive for peace that much harder, make her “want” to be a beacon to people who have lost hope. For a moment, she felt as though the responsibility of what she was about to take on was bigger than her. Just then, though, she thought of herself and what it could have been had she been a hero, if she had a hero at that time. Would her life been changed? With that thought in mind, she steeled herself with the thought of what was to come and the thought of reuniting with her brother, and her best friend in this world.
Chapter 6: White Rabbit
"Many of us started our journeys with good intentions, only to lose ourselves along the way... Though, maybe it was that we found our true purpose, after all." ~Quote of a Shadowfall Knight.
America was her home, the placed she'd lived for, watched her family die in. If she had to think about it, she might be shackled here. Shackled to the past that so defined her. In this world, one of turmoil and random chaos, was there really a beacon of hope, could she really shine so brightly and not be corrupted by those who could see?
Perhaps Ceal was too naive in her youth, too hopeful and idealistic to pursue what it is that she wanted to accomplish and not lose her path. Perhaps yet there is still room for salvation, perhaps it's too late.
With Curiosity burning in her heart, wanting answers she could not answer herself. She wanted a purpose to be, to find a reason to exist in this world that had left her behind. She was stuck in a still frame from the past, her soul shackled in a picture from when her family was still alive.
It felt that time had since stopped. The clock stopped on that moment in time, that day, that hour, that minute when she watched everything she loved be ripped from her. The feeling of terrible helplessness, of being unable to stop something so terrifyingly earth shattering.
She might be over there death now, but it didn't fix Ceal's lack of purpose. She felt the need to find something.. or someone to believe in, for the future. She felt that her being given power, the chance to change, for a reason. She indeed sought out that thought.
For a time, Shadowfall was all she knew of the militant world. They had occupied America, and then pretty much left it to her own devices. With this in mind, she sought out the leader of the major power: Mana Asthavon.
There is a saying that curiosity killed the cat, and while that may not have happened to Ceal, what did happen would change her for the foreseeable future.
Upon her visit with the Queen of demons, Ceal had been affected and potentially eternally corrupted by her sinister aura. It's manic energy inspires chaos and mania throughout people weak enough to succumb to it's power.
Thought faint at first, it was enough to push Ceal into vying to pledge her allegiance to Mana, to pay her debt in her service by any means. When Mana took her up on this offer, signing the contract on Ceal's body, she had branded her with an ancient sigil said to have been borne of the ancient greek goddess of chaos and discord: Eris when she took her virginity. The mark is said to bring great power to those who wield it, but will also surely haunt their minds with the manic energy from the goddess herself.
During this encounter with Mana, with the infusion of her power unto Ceal, and the brand of Eris. The demon magicks served to also repair and counteract any negative or terminal ailments inflicting it's host. this also meant that her power as a soul evolution human had also been restored to a point it no longer was detrimental to her.
True it was that Ceal gained outstanding attributes from such a mark, and as it would develop and take hold of her, so too would she have to battle with the images in her head, the voices that whispered to her. She would now forever have to battle the darkness within her heart.
[size=18]Chapter 7: The Bolt of Ruination
(This part is current and future history)
With the ancient sigil known as the Mark of Eris on her body, is as since branded Ceal as a "Child of Eris". Marked to be the reincarnation of the ancient forces of discord, she will inevitably develop one or more of the cardinal natures of those spirits and demons. They are spirits who breed negativity in the world, to stir up the elements of chaos and discord throughout the mortal realm.
It seems that the incarnation of Ate, the demonic spirit child of Ruin and Delusion has since followed the girl, toying with her mind and haunting her, waiting. This spirit is particularly fond of leading would-be heroes or defenders of justice astray, filling their heads with subtle thoughts of grandeur and self worth, of fame and riches, or anything else their heart most desires. Alas, though, it is all a farce, a terrible sick game the spirit plays only to watch the ending when they fall and lose everything unto ruin.

I. Natural Powers
» Physiological Abilities:
Due to Ceal's Soul Evolution and Demon hybrid blood, she is significantly stronger than the average human, being able to perform feats previously not possible to her, even as an Evo. By tapping into the ever growing demonic portion of her ability, as well as the power provided from the Mark of Eris, Ceal can shatter concrete or split metal much more easily than before.
She might not be as physically strong as a pure Demon, but when comparing to any other human, she might be able to run toe to toe on this aspect with even the more dedicated on the terms of strength.
Due to the nature of Ceal's new hybrid body, as well as the nature of the Eris Mark, she is able to withstand a larger beating than ever before. She already had an aptitude for taking a beating, but this just further expresses how far she has come power wise to be able to take more fatal attacks and be able to recover from them.
Perhaps due to Ceal's unique Soul Evolution ability, Ceal is highly resistant to electrical based attacks. Her body generates a constant voltage high enough to outright kill an average human, and by this point even beyond that. With this in mind, taking high powered electrically affiliated attacks comes as second nature to one so specialized in it.
While it's true that Ceal can take more pain than some, and more herself than ever before, a large portion of this can tend to manifest itself a different sensation entirely and serve to boost her state of arousal. The higher this number gets, the harder Ceal can remain in a fight without collapsing under the overbearing feeling. Ceal can expect to begin feeling light-headed, lack of concentration, physically weaker as her body is over indulging on lust energy, and can even lead into complete lost of consciousness.
Ceal is somewhat weak to attacks of the holy or divine spectrum due to her demonization. It's not quite at the leve of a pure demon's weakness to such, but still something Ceal ought to stray away from.
Ceal is still a human... at least partially. Normal human foods are just fine and can keep Ceal functional, happy, and lively. In fact, she prefers her signature spicy red curry chicken at any time!
However, due to the nature of her peculiar demon origin, Ceal is able to feed off of a secondary source. This tends to be primary source for any pure demons. For Ceal and her succubus nature, she can feed of the lust of humans, demons, and other races. This can be done orally through various means but can also be taken from the ambience of the air around her too, if the sensation is strong enough.
I. Demonic Abilities
Following Mana's chaotic and maddening influence being placed on Ceal's body, both her body and mind had been altered and made to think more abstractly. As a result, the nature of Ceal's electricity morphed and changed. Ceal is capable of altering the core principles of lightning in order to have it become more abstract and metaphysical in nature. However, in order to activate this power, Ceal must begin to mentally unlock the depths of her seal and allow it to begin to guide her power. So this varies heavily from her traditional electric control. With that said, you will be able to see some of these abilities in the sections below.
If bolt is the ability of Ceal to cast out her electrical energy in a bolt of lightning, then this ability is much the same way. By infusing the energy originating from the Mark of Eris unto her own base power, it combines the chaotic properties of lightning with the sinister powers of the ancient sigil.
Ceal must be able to mentally envision what this is and how it changes by the influence of the Mark. In doing so, Ceal's lightning turns black, as if tainted by the very darkness and no longer becomes a thing about "voltage", for this ability shakes the very foundation of what is real and what is not.
Typically cast out from her hands, these bolts determine their target based on Ceal's thoughts, and attempt to seek out the mark relentlessly, as if fueled by something. They hunger for flesh, to taste and destroy what they touch. Indeed, for whatever they make contact to, if unprotected or Ceal is powerful enough, is rend asunder and unmade from this world.
To say disaster bolts "damage" things is a bit of a wrong terminology, for they don't actually damage anything, they disturb the very reality of what they touch in a sort of "tug of war". If resistance is overcome, that matter becomes "deleted" so to speak, it is something akin to void magic. It negates the existence of that small bit of matter it touches, ripping it and devouring it.
Actual Effects: Can create small bolts of black electricity that seek a target or until intercepted by any physical or spiritual matter. Attempts to unravel the matter based on tier.
Tier 4: Small, quarter sized areas that may or may not be lethal to the human body, akin to a gunshot wound. Tier 3: Larger effect range (shot gun wound) , easier time breaking barriers and various resistance based on Ceal's mark of eris mastery. Tier 2: Greater ability to rend matter of multiple types, Area of Effect extended to entire bodies. Can still be overcome by various barriers. Tier 1: Can now designate entire areas of 10 meter radius to create storms. Uses a lot of energy, but deadly. Can also rend large structures, like houses and small buildings.
Disaster Field possesses the ability to zap and drain energy from the opponent. In order to perform this ability, Ceal must mentally create the needed protocols and calculations to transform the construct of "energy drain" into her electricity. Then she must determine how much energy is needed for this, how far it will be, the radius of it's influence, and how well it can affect her target.
In so doing this. Ceal can create a location, either around herself, another person, or anywhere within a certain distance from her, where she can manifest a type of static field by making the area habitable to static charges. It takes a certain amount of heightened cognitive thought to sustain this, but in doing so, the area, combined with the disaster influence from her Mark, creates an area that will passively eat away at one's energy, stamina, reiatsu, chi, or any other source of catalyst, within a reasonable range. It has a maximum range of one city block and and a minimum range of being centered on herself.
Depending on how intricate the values of Disaster Field lightning strikes (from the field of influence), this can induce a physical tiredness, mental exhaustion or complications attempting to summon their powers. (Until the duration of the thread is over) However, this does not turn into an energy drain ability which allots Ceal power. It only takes away and zaps and eats away the strength over her opponent. It's potency and effectiveness may range based on the various types of defenses and powers the opponent may have at their disposal.
Disaster Stunner is the ability to induce a supernatural form of paralysis on the objects, material and particles which compromise the environment around Ceal. For example: after making the appropriate mental analysis, configuration and estimates on a target; Ceal can attempt to cease the movement of particles in something like a projectile heading towards her trajectory. Or, in other cases, she can attempt to reduce the amount of momentum behind an opponents attack to become slow enough for her to evade or figure out a way to counter. The potency of this will vary more so on how much concentrated mental effort she infuses into her lightning and what type of counter-play the opponent can devise against this.
Range Of Effect For Disaster Stunner: At 4 tier, it is capable of stopping objects comparable to bullets, small boulders and energy attacks like balas. Once she ascends to 3 tier, it will evolve and be able to induce this effect on larger objects such as trees or light poles. After reaching 2 tier it will then be able to influence small buildings. Then, at 1 tier, it can influence entire city blocks.
Disaster Burst: Disaster Burst is the ability to induce sudden chaotic change upon the material which the lightning of Disaster Bolt is able to touch. This one requires less intensive mental thought, but it requires a firm and steady sense of how her disaster bolts will affect her target. Once Ceal has readied her mind to influence a target, she must create a projected pathway (this is done for all disaster bolts, as well) for it to take and unleash her energy. After this process has been finished, the intended effect is to have the molecules which are attached to her intended target destabilize and start to unravel instead of it's base property of attempting to erase matter that it touches.
An illustration of this coming into play within a theoretical fight would be if she managed to use Disaster Burst to make an energy attack akin to a cero implode on itself before coming into contact with her. This would allow her time to either dodge, counter or potentially negate the attack. Now, on the opponents end, this is not absolute. The reason for this is because the potency will vary based on the state of Ceal's mind, how much effort she placed into it and the energy available at her combat.
Sometimes it will entirely negate an attack, other times it will destabilize apart of the attack and reduce the attack potency of the attack. These will vary heavily because the state of battle is always changing and no one opponent is the same.
Other things to note is that this ability has a range of one city block and it's more energy heavy on Ceal than the previous two because of the fact it is a more offensive ability.
I. Soul Evolution Abilities
Ceal obtained the ability to generate otherwise lethal amounts of electrical voltage without suffering from negative effects. This is done by her soul force that is generated internally turning into charge. Somehow, this rather metaphysical source of energy is capable of ionizing to generate ambient, static electricity. This results in an increase of accidentally shocking people on touch and is also her base power of her soul evolved human state technically present since birth. It was stated that her body can produce and discharge a maximum of 100,000 volts
Voltage alone isn't necessarily dangerous, but coupled with the amps at which it can travel (a current in which the voltage to travel), is what makes voltage extremely dangerous.
The sheer voltage alone matches dry human skin's resistance (ohms) at a ratio at 1:1. (meaning dry skin has 100,000 ohms of resistance) Without forcing any additional amperes of current, it alone would generate one ampere. this is 10 times the ampere needed to stop the heart, and can cause enough heat from the current alone to melt human tissue and cause internal organs to cook from the heat as it can easily rise up to 250+ degrees F. Ceal can push this though conductive matter at 5 amps, similar amps to a car battery (though, such batteries push only 12 volts at these amps). Taking this into consideration. Her ability to electrocute things should not be taken lightly.
Fortunately, her body is incapable of keeping a current of her maximum capacity going for more than a few seconds. This is still enough to fry a person, however, she is capable of replicating this effect several times with reasonable cool down between each usage, so long as her energy source has not been depleted.
Just generating voltage isn't the only thing her base soul power does. She can also discharge voltages through touch or contact, sending electrical currents through facets of her body. (typically originating from the brain, the main conduit).
She has made use of Discharge, determining that since she is able to control the current through things she can touch, she makes use of this mainly with copper wiring. With some practice, she is sure that she can master the use of snaking wires around with electrical currents.
Using wires like this allow her to bypass the natural resistance to conductivity of the atmosphere, as she can run current directly through these. She can also touch things, such as people, to run current through.
A thing to note is that while Ceal manages to develop soul force, she is unaware of how, or what it is, only that it only becomes under her control after it has been converted into electrical energies.
With this ability, Ceal is able to cast out voltages transformed into static electricity by discharging deadly arcs of pent up static. Atmospheric resistance tends to be a strong insulator to electrical discharge, so Ceal must mark a location or pathway through it in order to safely and accurately guide these bolts of electricity.
These bolts can only go up to a maximum of Ceal's own voltage limit, and severely tires her out the more of these she casts, as it requires the energy to discharge, and the energy to ionize a pathway. Since these cost more energy than Discharge she prefers to use it, instead. At least, not until she finds a more efficient way to accurately use this power.
I. Soul State Evolution
» First Soul State Evolution:
Soul Shift: Rage Burst
This is Ceal's soul state evolution power. It can be triggered at any time, but typically arises when Ceal becomes enraged or triggered in some emotional way.
It expends soul force at a constant rate, but uses her own electrical power to forcibly stimulate the cells in her body and causes them into a type of hyperactivity. By doing this it greatly augments her speed and reflexes, almost appearing to be an actual bolt of lightning during this time.
Ceal also suffers a major demeanor switch in this form, typically becoming extremely angry or even going berserk. She sacrifices all forms of defense as well, her entire energy source funneling to her speed and lethality.
It is also one of the only times Ceal's soul energy will manifest as something not electrical in nature, forming claw like apparitions of semi-solid matter that are moving at such an incredible rate, the vibration frequency has the capability to rip asunder most physical and spiritual matter.
Also to note in this form, these claws and her lightning abilities all change to a red hue, almost as if Ceal's own blood were pumping through her electrical field.
Actual Effects: Ceal's speed skill rises by one in most tiers, perhaps two stages in tier 2 and 1 possibly. Ceal's strength increases by one stage at all tiers. However, Ceal's focus and mental deduction both decrease by one stage.
Notes: Ceal can kill herself with this ability if it depletes soul energy completely, including the energy that's reserved for the preservation of one's own life. Doing this would give her an insane power boost by tapping into this energy, but completely dangerous if she burns it out.
