Territorial Tulpa - One's Own Body: Mirja's personal Territorial Tulpa, she shuns the control of the surroundings and instead hugs the dome tight to her own body, having herself as her Territory. Eschewing control of anything but herself, Mirja can use this technique to control her own body, most commonly using it to purge herself of any foreign pathogens, and to fix damage that has been inflicted. It is not a passive regeneration, as such she needs a moment to focus on it, and repair the damage done to her. She also requires the knowledge of what is damaged to repair it, and if she is in sufficient pain to be unable to pinpoint the source, then this technique is rendered moot. Pain without a source is also unable to be repaired. Furthermore she is limited to three bones per usage of this Tulpa. The mental strain prevents her from using it twice in a row, and limits her to a maximum of three uses per thread. Despite the limitations, Mirja prefers it to the standard Territorial Tulpa as it fits her character very well. She wishes to have no control over anyone but herself.
Wolfcak Silat - Body of Clay: A martial arts style that, despite the name, has very little to do with Pencak Silat. She just thought the name sounded good and so took it and added Wolf in front of it to make it hers. Mirja developed this supernatural style after watching a collection of fights in an underground club she frequents. A true master of their weapon can make it do things one would never consider possible, draw out more than it's maximum potential, and even make it appear as if the weapon was bending and flexing, even when it is a solid steel sword. With this, and the thought that a martial artist's weapon is their body, she began to create Body of Clay.
Using her Territorial Tulpa and powering it with sheer tenacity, Mirja believed she got into it that without the technique, executing this would have been an impossibility. As it is, she slowly developed mastery over her own bodily functions to a point of anatomical insanity. Optimizing and perfecting her muscular and skeletal structure with the control she gained from her Territorial Tulpa, she has gains superior strength and durability when based against her normal body, and adding in nitrogen pockets to her joints grants a disturbing amount of flexibility. These modifications are not natural, however, and require a small but constant focus to keep them in place. Should she be subjected to sufficient pain or other intense emotion to lose this focus, her body will revert to it's normal state until the technique is repeated. It takes several hours to optimize her body, and so is not a thing she can do on the fly.
Wolfcak Silat - God Bashing Blows: This technique is focused around an interesting train of thought. A gram of skill is worth a pound of strength, but what happens if a recipe calls for both? The end result, is God Bashing Blows. The technique marries Wolf-God Fist with Silent Scream, focusing the arm, or leg's internal Reiatsu into the foot, or fist, and then flares it dramatically. It is not quite as destructive as Wolf-God Fist, nor does it grant her entire body the boon of power like Silent Scream, but it does allow for a sudden, quick enhancement of striking power in a considerable fashion, for when she needs to strike quickly rather than charge her most destructive technique, or when she would rather keep the building she is letting it off in, in one piece.
[This technique can be used three times a thread, and is not comparable with Silent Scream]
Martial Arts Stuff:
Body Usage Art - Sasen: Requiring considerable skill and great control over one's body, Sasen mimics a hand quickly turning into a clenched fist, but on a grander scale. Half-Sasen sees the muscles of the entire appendage tense at once, going from slack to full force in an explosive instant and granting a considerable increase in the strength of a single shot. Full-Sasen sees the entire body go from slack to maximum and gives an incredible defensive assistance when dealing with blunt shots. Sasen is very effective when used with Physical Instant's Chai Kick, making every muscle pump out it's maximum for the point of impact. However, using muscles at the maximum strength can wear them out a lot quicker than just doing so normally, and if it is overused and over strained, the chance of ripping the muscles is considerable. Still, despite the risks it is a solid technique that can grant a much-needed boon in a pinch.
Heart's Kiai - One Minute Wolfhood: 'Better to live one minute as a Wolf, than one day as a sheep'. So to is it better to fight like a Wolf for one minute, than an entire day as a sheep. This technique is a strange one, the source being similar to Earth-Defying Array's Tulpa, but not enough to be called a brother technique. More like, a second cousin, thrice removed. It requires tenacity, strength, and guts to perform, as well as a heart that screams to fight as a Wolf! The technique takes the entirety of the energy that the body would use that day, and compresses it into a minute of superhuman activity. Most users of this technique collapse after it's usage, their entire supply of energy exhausted. However, for those who have more energy than the body can use in a day regardless of activity, they are left in varying degrees of exhaustion.
Heart's Kiai - One Minute Lionhood: An advancement on One Minute Wolfhood, this technique can only be used by those with abnormally deep wells of energy, such that they can remain at peak activity for an entire day and not feel fatigued by the end of it. It burns the energy of up to five days (For even a Lion takes the weekend off) - depending on how hard the user pushes - into one minute, granting a colossal boost to their power for the one minute that it is active. However, once it runs out, the strain on the user's body becomes cripplingly apparent. Even if they are the esoteric fighter who has more energy than they could burn in five days of extended activity - such as those who have mastered Plus Ultra's Aquatic Abyss - they are still worn by the burning of such a massive degree of energy in such a small degree of time. Any lesser man can quite easily be killed by the strain of this technique ones it ends, with heart attacks, or organs simply shutting down from shock. Furthermore, at the start of this technique, the heart stops beating for several seconds while it prepares, causing some to pass out right away from the sudden shock of their heart stopping. And so it is a dangerous move, only to be used in the most desperate of times, or by the most confident of fighters.
Territorial Tulpa: Learned from Ashigoi Kazuri, the founder and progenitor of the style that Mirja created the Earth-Defying Array from, this Tulpa was considered by Mirja to be an impossibility until she witnessed it herself. The requirements are vast, however. One must have a perfect Full Tulpa, and an unyielding mind [Master Willpower] to construct it. Further more, they must have a great supply of energy to feed this creation, as it is a monster with the power to kill those who mistreat it. [Requires 2-1 tier minumum. Lasts 2 turns, +2 turns for every full tier above 2]
This miracle of mental discipline allows the user to construct a small dome, ten foot in diameter [20 for Grandmaster Willpower]. Within this Dome, the user is granted total understanding of everything within it, and may alter the none-living things within it to their desires. This can make battle difficult as the ground suddenly dips, under foot, or raises to become a barrier for those intent on attacking. The Wind can become so strong that it uproots trees, or simply vacate a portion of the sphere altogether.
The most obvious counter to this technique is to simply leave the area that is under control, and keep the distance from the dome of control. The obvious counter to this counter is to not use the dome when the opponent is expecting it, bringing it about suddenly and catching the opponent off guard. As such, the mere possession of this skill adds another dimension to a fight, even if it is un-used for the entire fight, if the opponent knows about it, they will be on guard for it's use, and this could lead to a fatal second of distraction in a pivotal moment.
Zero-point Soul-burst Refraction technique: A Reiatsu based technique developed by Mirja as an enhanced variant of her Silent Scream. However, in training it became something entirely different, and so it does not, as she expected, replace the old technique. It involves flaring Reiatsu out to every part of her body, and then rapidly reabsorbing it to the core, before flaring it out again. This creates a fantastical phenomena that swells her unique physiology to a level that dwarfs the power increase gained by Silent Scream. Once it has begun, it is self-sustaining until Mirja makes an effort to stop it, allowing her to focus on other things.
However, this technique does not replace her Silent Scream due to the unforeseen side-effects. Her reiatsu network is put under a strange feeling that is not exactly strain, but does not feel good. While this would not be a problem if that was all it was, her physical body is plagued with phantom pain as well, bombarding her on a physical and spiritual level with feelings of intense discomfort. Furthermore, while her body can handle the technique being active for as long as Mirja is able to deal with the double-layered discomfort, repeated activation and deactivation can cause damage to her Reiatsu network and her physical body, possibly even permanently if she is not careful. This makes it more of a trump card than anything else.» Why:
Hoping for a Pre-approval to do a training thread for them.» Extra:
Topkek Silat, cool martial art stuff, and general awesome.
