Asthavon Eyes: Despite being a shifter, inami asthavon’s eyes remain a pure emerald green, a token to her heritage. The ominous gleam that lurks within them often speaks of catastrophe and unspeakable bloodshed. Although the real contradiction that can be found lays not in the crave for destruction and torture, but the innocence. The innocent that stems from a sense of purity within inami’s haunting look. The beckoning gleam of her eyes that speaks of tenderness long since lost. It is this complexity that truly can strike a chord in a person, can mislead and even mask the monster that lurks beneath the beauty of these emerald orbs.
Yet within her eyes there is also a hint of amusement, a dripping satire that manifests in the way her eyes set on her face. As if she finds the world befitting of her amusement. This glee oozes from every glance, every caress of her eyes and can be felt even in her most fleeting glances, as if life for Inami Asthavon is nothing but a simple game.
Then there is the monster, the primordial chaos that lurks beneath the gleeful glimmers and toying glances. The gaze that holds the appearance similar to that of a dead fish. Under this gaze emotions simply aren’t prevalent, in this gaze you won’t see love, nor affection, nor sin and greed. There is simply a penchant for unrest and discord. A gaze that one might say glances into their very souls.
Pale Skinned Hellraiser & The Mark Defines Her: Inami Asthavons skin can be described by the word pale. Albino pale except her skin is creamy rather than see-through. It’s color is similar to those who live their entire lives in the dark, the purest white without blemish to mar it’s perfect surface. The only difference in the skin that adorns her body is quite simple actually. On her shoulders there is a mark that caresses the shoulder blades, a pair of wings that glow of a beautiful green. This tattoo has meaning because it is her mark of eris. The marking speaks of liberation the need to fly away and be free from the hurt and pain that chained her, and bound her to her own inhibitions.
The next aspect of the mark that caresses her is found on her tail and her horns. Runic markings adorn them, with their ethereal glow. These markings are in roman and if you put them together they say the following Sit libertas exitium vitae est mendacium
This means Freedom is destruction life is lies. It’s a term that eludes to her own path, what she’s gone through and the life she currently lives. To be born from the ashes of their own ruin to be caressed by the lies that exist in every fabric of existance. That is the lesson that exists within her seal of eris.
Hair of a snowy hue: Inami’s hair has long since been bleached from it’s normal bronzed hue to that of a peerless white. To her white is the color of neutrality, of indifference and even further it has the bonus of being synonymous with the concept of purity. There is no genetic reason for the queen of chaya nation to have hair of a pure white hue. Instead for her there is more a combination of reasons that has led to her having hair of a pure white hue. The first for her at the very least was the need for change. To be something different than who she originally was. The second however was she believes nothing is pure in this world, it is all inevitably tainted. Thus by changing her hair to fit the very color that purity is considered to be well, that is her finger to the sky if you will.
Short Stature: Inami asthavon’s shifter is a tiny thing. It’s probably only around 4 ½ feet in height. This goes along with purity or the mockery of it. What's more pure than a child? What’s more precious than a child? Nothing! At least for inami there is nothing more pure than that of a child. Hence why for the shifter form that she has chosen she chose a more childlike stature. The vast majority of the reason being that it is for psychological effect than anything else. However, there is a minor reason that is something other than psychological. This would be that in terms of maneuverability she favors the body of a child. » Shifter Appearance Picture:

I. Personality Traits» Personality:
Whim. Whimsy. Disregard. Poise. Insanity. Regality. There are many ways that one could describe the personality of inami asthavon. Once a gentle queen who ruled over the nation that was regarded as most savage in demon world. Some days she can show a calm collective spirit that pervades from every fiber of her being. A calm unshakable spirit that is nearly unflappable in any instance. Blood and gore? Such motley concepts would almost certainly fail to phase her. Grief and Fear? Concepts she seems to lack in all but a very few token situations. Such as her family, her friends, those she cares about. These are the people that the whimsical facade of calm might be broken for to feel such a concept as concern for. Given even depraved as she is, the concept of family is one that is all important to her. The concept of loyalty is not forgotten in these rotten bones, even despite the hinted tones of chaos that exude from her on almost every word, every tilt of her chin to the languid curl of her lips, she is loyal.
Such loyalty can be seen in many situations, to the point she is not above risking life and limb for those she cares about. For those few people, she will move mountains, she will venture the very depths of hell, and slay deities and gods alike. Why? Well that's simple, at her very essence such a turbulent ball of chaos seldom gives a fuck about what others think about her, which is why the means she employs to meet the ends can be exaggerated, heinous and in short atrocities that very few could stomach to recreate. Partially because she loves to torture, to pick at a person on a physical and emotional level to see how they tick. To see the machinations of a mind that already has begun its untimely march towards ruin. Yet it’s also because she is an extremely willful person. If it is something that she has set her sights on, with every iota of her being, yes this is the key here, because inami is known to be fickle and whimsical as touched upon before. So if she completely devotes her mind to it? You could burn her, scald her, torture and break her, desecrate everything she believes in and ruin everything she has worked for.
But the fact of the matter is? She will still trudge on to complete what she has set out to complete, with a sick and twisted single minded determination that boggles the mind and rejects such mundane concepts such as pain and anguish, greed and lust, joy and despair. To the point that it even can cause contradictions in her very core. To contradict who she is as a person and continue down that path even if it ruins her to the point of her existence becoming scorned by those she loves, or outright obliterated into nothingness. That is her will, that is how she operates , her modus operandi. If she wished to teach another a lesson, she’d do so even at the cost of her own body being harmed, if she wished to talk to someone she’d talk to them even if her body was being shorn to nothingness.
In part this is due to the original steely determination the queen has as the leader of chaya nation, however more than that it is also due to the sickening liberation that the seal of eris has enacted upon her being as the deified figure dysnomia, the goddess of lawlessness.
The disconnect to all this, which makes it the kicker is that while she has this otherworldly will, she isn’t devoid in respects to matters of the heart. She still feels the pangs of love for another as any other might. She still feels the sorrow accompanied with loss, she feels the pain of being hurt, the twinge of amusement that comes with joy, the frustration that comes with betrayal. The only difference is that each of these emotions have been hardwired in a different way than most people. They are portrayed differently, and have different outcomes than most people.
Take excitement and glee? To a normal person these emotions could bring about acts of elation or moments of bliss. For inami these moments could be their most deadly to others, bringing about chaos, destruction and pain upon her whim and whimsy. Because of the fact that her state of mind is closely linked to the dissonant chords of chaos that are the dark underbelly to civility that has been imposed upon society as “modern courtesy”. Which is why her actions are more chaotic, to the point that mild excitement could lead her to do any number of things on the drop of the hat, be it acts of charity, or actions of pure terror that instill fear in the hearts of many. To her these actions can be considered one in the same, which is why there is such interchangeability between them.
Delving deeper, it could also be said that Inami finds farce’s such as rules of society, etiquette and social norms to be complete hogwash. She finds them to be shallow and without meaning, unless of course she is working certain angles or trying to reflect certain outcomes. In which case? She might keep up the pretence of cordiality with someone for a brief period of time.
Yet if you delve past the layers of filth that mire her incomprehensible personality, you will find weariness. Exhaustion that eats away at ones essence. She is tired of the status quo, and in very rare situations this can be seen. The moments that she pauses and looks back on what shes done, or when she’s facing a truth she may not wish to deal with. It’s a very different side of Inami Asthavon that she often chooses to keep buried under the surface. This affects her personality because she often covers up the weariness with condescending tones and sullen sarcasm. » Likes:
Chaos: The queen loves the pandemonium that occurs when everything falls apart. The succulent symphony of decay that will span even the greatest of creations in it’s ending days. It brings to her a state of euphoric passion, a high to which the likes of, quite honestly is hard to compare to. To be specific when referring to chaos she means the very concept it embodies, the unpredictability, the inconsistency, the constant turbulence that occurs within the ever changing scape.
Free will: One of the things she adores is free will, but it is for a very twisted reason. She loves to see the way people work as they are falling into despair and decay on some level. But moreso she is fascinated by the machinations of the mind that give rise to higher reasoning. How a person ticks if you will. In this way she loves her “Experiments” especially so after being liberated and becoming one with the child of eris, Dysnomia, the goddess of lawlessness. The twisted glee she gets from seeing the consequences of the desire to carve ones own path through the anals of history is something that alleviates the gaping chasm of inconsistencies and doubt within her own soul. It makes her feel greater than the sum of her dysfunctional parts.
Giving pain: Inami feels emboldened by pain, it gives her the jolt needed to feel alive. To hear the succulent screams of another being, it is very similar to affirming her own meager existence as here and present in this plane of “reality” if you will. It grounds her and allows her to focus, to seek clarity in the screams of anothers pain. It is twisted yes, but for her it is a method of release. A means to end the madness lurking within her own soul, that infringes upon her mind and seeks to bring her and all around her to ruin.
Receiving pain: Much more so than inflicting pain upon others, the pain inflicted upon herself is a reminder of her being alive. It is an electric jolt that can cause excitement in the twisted queens psyche. The reason behind it is to her much like giving pain is an affirmation of her being alive, receiving pain is an affirmation that this is real
that the present is not an illusion that will vanish before her very eyes. This stems partially from the loss of neoveta, even now sometimes it doesn’t seem real to her. By feeling the pain, she is grounded in the fact that everything around her is not an illusion that will vanish like a puff of smoke.
Negative Emotion: Inami loves the concept of hatred, of envy gluttony and despair. She finds that these emotions are an integral part of what makes a person a person. These horrid emotions are the dark underbelly that is hidden beneath the faux exterior of every single interaction. She finds these emotions to be amusing, to be hated, to be feared. To be the object of envy. The folly of acting upon these more primal urges keeps her enthralled with those around her, if nothing more than an object of study.
Positive emotions: Love, Generosity, Selflessness. Inami finds the positive emotions that enable others to express love and affection to be. . .an enigma. She loves their concept but ponders the meaning behind them. Partially because she loathes to admit that the emotions she heard of might not be ones she is capable of feeling anymore, but maybe it stems from this near obsessive yearning to understand them that she likes them in a way.
Path to Ruin: Inami loves to set people upon a path that ends in self destruction. Not because she wishes to see them suffer along the way, but rather it intrigues her to see the difference choices can make between becoming a beggar and one of the affluent. The free will that she values so highly, how one's poor decisions can cause that free-will to become more of a nightmare than a blessing. To her these actions interest her because she doesn’t exactly understand them.
Family: Inami is devoted to her family, the reason it is a like is because she adores the siblings she has. Even if she found everyone else in the world to be lacking, her family would still be a bright point in her life that she wouldn’t readily throw away.
Contradictions: She loves Contradictory existences, those who would lie to themselves, to others or go against what they believe in. She finds the depravity to be refreshing, the concept that one could even begin to be dishonest with themselves to such an extent is an easy way to cause her ribs to shudder in a state of laughter.
Solitude: Inami doesn’t need to be with others, physically the company of others actually due to the clash with her ideals and so many others leaves her at a state of imbalance. The emotions that run rampant in a person, their convictions and ideals. The constructed reasons that they exist cause a plethora of things within her. They rouse the ugly cravings within her, and cause her to wish to do unspeakable things. Only when being by herself can she truly know if she’s acting because of her own wishes, rather than being strung along by the actions of others.
Doubt: She loves the tender what ifs, the moment when someone believes the time they’ve invested, the emotions they have felt are all for naught. When their lives fall astray because they do not know if they made the right choice. When their very foundations have been shaken. It is an emotional mindset that brings her a sensation of bliss, to feel someone's anguish from doubting everything they have stood for? That is an emotional high that can cause the queen to feel calm and satiated. It brings to her clarity. It allows her to feel connected to another person on an almost intimate level, because it is a taste for them, of what she has been through. » Dislikes:
Herself: It is very gimmicky, but the one thing that inami fears in the world above all else is her own depraved existence. She is afraid that one day, the taint that caresses her soul will affect those she cares about, that it will take away everything and leave her with nothing. While she accepts the fate she has been dealt, an example of this fear of self would come into mirrors. She despises them, and will not get in front of them because she can see herself within them.
Being Alone: This differs from solitude. It plays in with her fear of self very nicely. She is afraid of being alone, of the day that no one is concerned for her well being. The day when everyone forsakes and leaves her putrid soul to rot like it deserves. It is different because while the emotions of others get rise from her, she is as much checked by the kindness that has been bestowed upon her as she is hindered by the emotions they exude. She is afraid of what she might become the day that she has nothing left to lose, nothing left to give.
Closeness: It may be contradictory, but even as she craves to know that she isn’t alone she is terrified to be close. Now this isn’t “physical” closeness because Inami Asthavon has no real concept of personal space, it’s more a psychological closeness. A feeling of connectedness with another being that goes beyond mere acquaintances. She doesn’t wish to feel the emotions of worry for another being, she fears the concept because it goes against the grain of her own existence. They are chains and distractions, unwanted. So she often won’t get to close to others in terms of true psychological closeness.

I. Natural Abilities & Physical Parameters»Physical Capabilities:
Speed: Inami is extreme agile, being capable of moving at high mach speeds even during a long duration. Be it that generally inami’s constitution is lightweight and promotes aerodynamics it makes it so that she is quite capable of moving from point a to point b at speeds that could be called mind-boggling. And it is without a doubt the strongest aspect of her physical capabilities.
Now when you think of speed
Defense: Physically speaking inami’s worst feature would be the durability of her body. Given the way she fights, interacts and works with the world around her she doesn’t see the need to have a durable body or rather she has a very weak constitution when it comes to durability.
What this naturally translates to is, while not quite as weak as a human being it’d be only strong enough to potentially block attacks such as bats and metal bars. Stuff like getting hit by cars or even being attacked by gunfire is enough to harm inami’s body if you actually manage to hit it. This is because atleast for inami asthavon the weakest aspect of her would be durability. » Natural Abilities:
Immense connection and understanding of zao-ka: Inami asthavon has a near unparalleled understanding of zao-ka. How it works, how she can use it, and even the applications that it can be brought into. All of these things stem from her knowledge on zao-ka. To her the origin of demon energy, the very power that gives them the ability to fight is more than energy.
It’s a way to view the world. Each breath can be infused with power, each step reverberates power. She understands the intrinsic connections that zao ka can be interconnected to. Because of it she is more than capable of pulling off feats such as using the environment itself as a weapon. Manipulating it to such an extent that she for example could turn a drop of water into a cataclysmic explosion by isolating the environment around it and then utilizing the ability to manipulate a domain to destabilize the particle in question until it erupts.
In part it is due to the blood that runs within her veins, the blood of a royal demon of the asthavon family. However her power mainly stems from the understanding she has of demonic energy in general. Because of this she is able to display the prowess of zao-ka to the extreme. Amplifying her own natural characteristics, her speed, her power. All of this is possible with Zao-Ka, and inami is capable of doing so to an absolutely terrifying level. Capable of erecting domains of immense magnitude and manipulating them to do battle with as she sees fit.
She is also very in tune with her environment. Partially stemming from a demon's knowledge of environment. An aspect of zao-ka that allows the demon to read everything within their domain. However the unique thing for inami herself is the way that emotion tangibly manifests to her as a stench. Yes, because of her knowledge of the environment she can smell the emotions that roll off a person to a lesser extent if she is directly in front of them. Emotions such as hatred, gluttony, sloth, and joy, happiness and sorrow. Each of them has a distinct scent that the demon queen is capable of enjoying.
At her level of mastery over the art of zao-ka she is also able to employ reiatsu drain to a terrific level even though she generally chooses not to. More than capable of stealing and capping the energy levels of those she fights if they aren’t weary of her. Albeit this of course can be combatted, since it is merely a part of the art of zao-ka that inami seldom uses. That is to say there is an order to which she shows the most familiarity with the art of zao ka.
For example her level of understanding of the knowledge of the environment is to an extreme level, to the point that she can to a lesser extent in demon world even gaze upon the loose strands of demonic energy that float about.
In comparison her competence with reiatsu drain would pale considerably. Granted her proficiency of it is at a fairly high level, it’s nothing if compared to other skills that she uses more regularly in combat. For example her proficiency in what is known as Black Inferno blast is extremely high. She is capable of creating and destroying large swathes of land with this technique if she so wishes to do so.
In this way the connection she has to zao-ka like any other being is an accumulation of what she has excelled in and what she considers herself to be proficient at. It is because of this though that she has an abnormally large connection to the source of demon magic.
Demon Magic: Inami asthavon boasts a sound mastery over the art of demon magic, being capable of utilizing it without incantation and if need be at will. Although what she truly excells at isn’t using traditional spells as most demon would. Instead to her demon magic is simply a bolster to tie in to her art of zao-ka. Using it as a foundation or structure to further bolster the ability to manipulate the environment or even utilize affects such as a black inferno blast.
Because of this it’d be rare to see inami use a traditional spell because to her the application of demon magic is fluid and ever-changing. Being capable of utilizing it without rhyme or reason. It is the tool to which she makes the impossible possible and is a foundation to which she builds off of for many of her supernatural techniques.
Through demon magic Inami is capable of manipulations of aspects of the world around her such as gravity, create constructs and other mind-boggling feats that defy the natural order of things, however the main aspect that she builds upon with demon magic is as touched upon before mostly foundational and analytical.
She uses her comprehension of demon magic to pick apart the sequence of things, reconstruct them in a way that would be most beneficial for what she’s trying to do at that moment. Such as for example if she needs to, she could utilize demon magic to tweak a black inferno blast to have differing effects from the norm. Or on another token she could use it to reinforce her Akuma Kyodo, (Basically a naturally occurring barrier all demons have) To focus on certain aspects and strengthen it past the norm instead of only controlling one aspect of it.
So in a way demon magic for inami is the glue that holds all her basic racial abilities together, beyond her capacity in zao-ka it allows her more maneuverability, a flexibility when dealing with other instances that she’d not normally have otherwise. Probabily because of this inami’s mastery as stressed upon before doesn’t stem from her traditional application of demon magics through a medium of spells , but rather through the raw capability she has when it comes to general application of her demon magic.
Akuma Kyodo: Akuma Kyodo: Akuma kyodo for inami asthavon is much like most demons, it’s a simple demonic barrier. However the queen of chaya nation has managed to alter her own demon barrier extensively, Because of this unlike many demons in the sense that her demonic barrier is not simply one that is utilized to filter out stuff or as a meager means of defense. To her the demon barrier at it’s base essence is something much more, it has properties which can be utilized for offense, and she even manipulates the very characteristics of it so that she can use it fluidly in the midst of battle. Below are the traits of Inami’s Demonic Barrier.
Energy Decay: An intrinsic part of her own Akuma kyodo would lay in the properties of decay. The ability to rot away everything that comes into contact with it when one considers what is reasonably possible. The way it does so is very simple, the naturally occuring type of energy within her known as dark energy/ decaying energy has within it very similar properties to that of death energy, particularly when it comes to decay, soul stealing and other aspects of the like. Thus this energy is manifested as a byproduct through the queen of chaya nations akuma kyodo. This in itself causes a drastically different method of defense than most barriers utilized by the demon race.
Given while most demons utilize the barrier as a means to filter stuff out, passively resisting the affects of the environment around it to give the demon utilizer a reasonably safe “bubble” surrounding them. This is where the path between inami’s demon barrier which is custom suited to her skill set, diverges from what a normal demonic barrier might do. Given hers does not simply diffuse and reflect the harmful substances in the environment and merely ward off the attacks that surround it. Instead this barrier is naturally affecting the environment surrounding it causing the particles that come into contact with the barrier to simply decay into a state very similar to nothingness or the absence of space.
In doing so this means that the barrier is actively attacking the environment around it constantly to reduce it to a state of nothingness. It is far different from a demons barrier that simply filters out and reflects harmful agents from entering. Naturally this means that the space surrounding inami’s demonic barrier is often in a constant state of volatility due to the fact that it is constantly shifting from being comprised of substance, which is in this case matter, and then nothingness; which is the product that is generated after all existing matter within a space of a atom surrounding inami’s akuma kyodo has been completely eradicated.
Generally this means that for attacks that would bypass a demons barrier they have to deal with something entirely different ontop of the naturally hard exterior. This difference is the concept of decay, In coming into contact with Inami’s demon barrier unless there is a truly monstrous difference in tier, such as her being 0-3 and someone being 0-1 there is a natural damage dampening affect. This means any attack that strikes her becomes only 4/5ths of it’s original power. This reduction steams from that concept of volatile space and the decay affect that is enacted upon the space of an atom surrounding the contact point with her akuma kyodo.
However beyond this the concept of energy decay has a much more frightening active aspect to it. It’s not a guranteed outcome but it is capable of destabilizing the energy within an attack through decaying the structure of it upon contact. This causes for a rapid breakdown of the bonds that hold the attack in question together which results in the attack turning into a massive explosion upon reaching the surface of her demonic barrier. However for such a thing to transpire it requires for Inami to release energy equivalent to half of the attack in question, and even then it only will take place for attacks that aren’t being controlled. I.E if the attack was being actively manipulated its just a matter of pouring in more energy to resist the decay. However if an attack doesn’t have that concept to it, it’s very easy to destabilize and thus blow up.
Granted with this rather scary aspect there are it’s downsides. One such thing is that her Demon barrier unlike other demons does not have a theoretically infinite amount of time to be utilized. For Inami to use her akuma kyodo she can only utilize it for 20 turns in a row before it would cease to be used. Or she can apt to utilize the affects of energy decay for 5 turns and then have it turn off for the remainder of the thread if she is going to utilize it indefinitively. In this way the concept of her barrier is immensley different then that of others.
Finally Though, Inami’s demon barrier is capable of utilizing the concept of decay to expand outwards at expanse of actually ceasing to be a barrier. This concept is known as Decayed feild, and it dampens indescriminately the power of any attack that is within it for 5 posts (Inami’s posts) Of their power, so they would only have 4/5ths of the original power that they possessed.
Granted the cost of using the ability known as Decaying feild is that for the entirety of the thread following its use Inami Asthavon will be unable to utilize her barrier at all. Consider it a trump card that inami is able to utilize in times of great need. The only other thing of note when it comes to this however is that utilizing the decaying field drains her of 20% of her entire energy reserves.
Bodily manipulation: Other than zao ka the thing that inami is probably best at would be her capacity to manipulate and change her body. She is capable of doing many of the things your standard demon can do, such as manipulating their size, appearance, bone structure and so on so forth.
However beyond that she is also capable of having other aspects even in the midst of battle. For example with her understanding and abilities she is capable of say manipulating her own bone structure and density in the midst of battle to make herself lighter so she could move faster. However on the opposite side of it she could also perhaps do something along the lines of manipulating bone density so when she’s being struck by a stronger opponent her bones will not shatter right away.
Some things come easy when it comes to inami’s basic capabity for manipulating her own constitution. For example, changing her appearance is easy and effortless, the process of molding the bones and even changing height can be done in mere moments without a problem even when purely utilizing her own anatomy without the aid of demonic energies.
However if she was to do something like accelerate the growth of cells within her body to speed up the regeneration of a wound, that would require an energy expenditure of equal magnitude in relation to the severity of the wound in question. I.E it’d take vastly more energy to regenerate a wound of near-fatal proportions while relying purely on biological make-up than a flesh wound would require.
Now how this can be classified as a natural bodily function is simple, in the case of this kind of regeneration energy is simply utilized as a medium in which the body then catabolized to generate the required energy to perform the biological process. In this way the only metaphysical reaction taking place or “supernatural” aspect here would the process in which spiritual or in this case, demonic energies are converted into natural fuel to which the demon anatomy then burns down to form the required energy.
The upside to this is that unless it’s an agent that affects a body’s natural regeneration processes I.E for example a effect similar to apoptosis or cell death that exceeds the regeneration of cells. In such a case it’d be biologically possible to slow down or halt the effects of her regeneration. Now because this is biological this does mean that inami is capable of utilizing this to even “frankenstein”
