Zetsuei is 6’4 with tanned skin, teal eyes, and short black unkempt hair. He has a very slim looking build, looks to be in his early 20’s, and wears a blue hooded T-shirt with black frayed pants and bandaged fists. His tan skin is muddled and marred from past roughhousing and implications. There are no true distinguishing marks besides his skin and is rather plain looking. » True Appearance Written:
When he is his true appearance, his size shrinks to 4’5, his skin becomes completely smooth and unmarred, the color of his hair changes to dark indigo and well as becoming significantly longer. The most noticeable part of his transformation is that he loses all facial features. Despite this he can still talk, eat, listen, etc.
I. Personality» Personality:
Investigative- Zetsuei was the type to ask questions often and inquire about how things would work. People were among his favorite topic of inquiries. There was also something satisfying about hearing of rumors and proving them true or false. He was by no means a detective or anything of the like, it was just to satisfy his craving to know.
Introverted- The demon had often found himself working alone in most cases, and had grown to appreciate the solitude of it. Making friends wasn’t exactly easy for him, given how he hated the hustle and bustle of regular life. He never had friends’ only associates, and temporary partners. This led to conflicting feelings within him with one side wanting to know about someone while another was just to keep his distance.
Lonely- This loneliness was price paid for his reclusiveness but it was not always intentional. People seem to naturally draw away from Zetsuei at best and outright chase and attack Zetsuei at worst. He simply had that effect on people. The concept of intimacy that was not purchased or bargained for something else was beyond his understanding. Which of course only meant it was even more desired by him.
Cautious – While interested in learning about others, Zetsuei never got too close to them. Earlier in his life when he didn’t know better, his thirst to learn had gotten many people hurt or injured. A gab about a gentleman’s weak side here, a habit of a merchant there; he didn’t believe in hiding things he found out with other people, not truly understanding what the information was worth or what it would cost him. He was just fortunate that people didn’t kill him or at the very least lock him away. As such he keeps all information he finds out to himself as he is the only one who can be trusted with it. He had also learned to avoid people, who were natural instigators. Life was trouble enough without the big people charging around like elephants bringing attention to themselves and the people around them.
Masochistic - His curious nature and his desire to discover new things has also led him to willingly endure more of his fair share of pain. It has gotten to the point where he lowkey enjoys it. Zetsuei also has a habit of throwing himself to the wolfs in a sense as if looking forward to the rebuttal. He is often in conflict with himself while deciding the method of identifying more: To remain distant and careful or to be up close and endure what comes.
Situational Pacifist - Zetsuei despises losing potential knowledge that he can hoard to himself, so he is always hesitant to kill anyone. However, should there be a controlled environment where he can partake of one's history before they die, he will have no qualm about murdering them as he has all he desires at that point.» Likes:
Cranberries, Cats(He refers all feline animals as cats with larger species just being big cats.), Peace and quiet, Finding out something new, Conversing with himself over the information he attains, Learning about other people.» Dislikes:
False Information, Liars, The Noise-kin( what he refers to very noisy people.), Killing(To kill is to lose valuable knowledge of ones life.)
I. History» History:
The start of Zetsuei’s beginning wasn’t overly that eventful or different from other demons of his type. He was just a clump of thoughts being drawn and collected together. He had only a bare recollection of what was happening around him as he was being formed. There was great silence and warmth where he was and it covered him like a gentle wet blanket. This momentary bliss was short-lived as he came into the realm, a small being who was a midget among mountains. The quiet and warmth that had surrounded him was replaced with noise and sharp stabs poking at his skin. The stabbing was curious as it seemed more surprising than painful. Fear of the unknown had given way to curiosity as he slowly rose to his feet.
The world around him was very odd. Memories trickled out from the recesses to make some sense of what was going on. The name Zetsuei had arrived to him as if it were an afterthought. He raised his hand to the ever present stabbing around him.
This wasn’t anything new to Zetsuei for he had seen it many times somewhere. As he began to touch and feel around himself, one thing that Zetsuei noted was that his face was as smooth as glass yet he could see, smell, and hear just as well as if he had normal features. His senses also didn’t seem to want to remain in one place either or follow its regular function, leading him to hear different smells, taste colors, visually see sounds. It was confusing but interesting experience. As he touched the surroundings, it was as if several lights went on inside him. He was able to completely identify what he touched from what it did down to what it was made of. The information that he received never seemed to stay with him. It wasn’t like the demon forgot or was unable to process it all. It was as if his mind was only visiting his body. He staggered as he worked to push his body forward. His senses were dancing and with each footfall of his bare feet, information came to him in droves.
The information was constantly passing to his mind, making him shudder with conflicting sensations of nausea and delight. As time passed, he began to get a handle on his senses and could observe things a bit more clearly. He was in a run down section of some city, and he was standing amongst the debris and trash. The smell around him was of stale and metallic and it was even more pungent with the rain. As he was looking around, it was at this moment that he heard a soft sultry voice call out to him.
"Oi...naked guy. You seem like you're lost. Do you need any help?"
Zetsuei turned around to find a lady holding a purple umbrella, looking at him. The lady was actually wearing an expensive suit with flat tacky shoes. She had blue eyes, green long hair and a seductive figure. She actually towered over him standing at 5'9 and would look completely human if not for the 3 silver horns growing from her forehead. Zetsuei had just been born today, so the fact that this lady was completely out of place in such an area was completely over his head at this point. There was also something else that he saw the moment he saw her. The minute he looked on her it was as if he recalled something about this woman as if she had always known her yet the information that was given to him was undecipherable. It was like a puzzle that scrambled itself each time you got to the last piece.
"Who are you?" he asked slowly.
"Well lets just say I'm someone whose here to help newborns like you!" the lady replied with gentle smile.
"Yes newborn. Not many people come about naked around this place unless they were mugged and robbed, and I don't see any injuries on you at all. That'll probably change real quick. Speaking of nudity..."
The woman had grabbed into her pockets and pulled out an impossible large trench coat. She threw the coat at Zetsuei and made a motion to put it on. He did as he was instructed and while the coat kept him warm, it had a smell of perfume and cigar smoke that didn't agree with him.
"There you go kid. You stand out a little less now. My name is Dalis Welkqueet. What is yours? Or do you still not no it yet?"
"My name...is Zetsuei." the young demon replied,feeling himself getting stronger as he got warmer.
The lady approached Zetsuei and ruffled his hair gently.
"Zetsuei huh? It isn't the strangest name I've heard, but it is odd. Anyway you newborns are probably in the mood for something to eat right? Well wait just a moment. I have something for you right here."
It was then that the lady had pulled out a small knife from her pocket. Zetsuei understood what a knife was and was quite confused as to why she was taking it out. What happened next confused him even more. The lady had laid the edge to her hand and slit her hand open, letting the blood drop out. There was no hesitation nor flinch from Dalis as she did this. Zetsuei out of curiosity gave his own hand a cut in the middle. The sensation of pain shot through his mind as his own blood began to drip out. The lady shook her head, chuckling as she approached closer.
"Hey Zetsuei. My blood is kind of special. If you eat it, you'll feel a whole lot better. Come and take some!"
Zetsuei raised his hand to touch her hand when information had flooded his mind again. It was that same undecipherable gobbledygook from before. It came to him far more urgently now practically slapping him in the face. This made Zetsuei woozy and he knelt down. As he rubbed his head, he saw a bloody hand extend itself to him. He smiled as he gladly took her hand. The very moment their hands clasped together, Zetsuei felt something unlock within him as if he had cemented himself in world, though he couldn't understand why.
"Hey now it tastes better when it is fresh. Hurry up and taste some." the green-headed spoke.
Ignoring the confusing information, Zetsuei took the blood into his hand. He had no mouth to speak of but almost as if his body knew what he wanted the blood vanished and he could feel it enter his body. Words couldn't describe the feeling of strength and joy he felt as he partook of the blood. It was sweet but not in an unpleasant way. It had a gummy texture and was chewy, but with each chew more delicious juice poured into his belly.
It made him feel happy and warm as when he was still in Nidhana's embrace. Then with the playful demeanor of cotton candy it was gone. Dalis chuckled softly as she could tell Zetsuei was perplexed even without a face. The warmth that came with the blood had also vanished and the cold had returned only, he felt it more now than when he did prior.
The blood was still leaking a little from Dalis's hand so Zetsuei approached to sample it, but as he made a movement forward, she moved back.
"Now now, Zetsuei. It may be tasty but it's still my blood. I can't be giving it away all willy-nilly. Though I can give some of it to you for a bit for a few favors around. Do you mind?"
Zetsuei agreed as it was the least he could do to thank her for helping him out. Following Dalis, he left the deserted alleyway and walked out into the busy city district. As Zetsuei had barely gotten a handle on his senses, the experience had made him feel faint as all the information was being absorbed and analyzed. There was also a lot more demons traveling about the area. Like ants, the two of them scurried underneath the towers of stone and rock and wood. He hardly had any time to experience it for Dalis was taking him some where very quickly. If he had let go of her hand, he would most certainly have gotten lost amongst the crowd of people.
"Where are we going?" he asked practically skidding across the muddy ground.
"Well we're going to my home. I have a few more people for you to meet. They'll bring you up to speed on how things work around here."
Naively unfearful, Zetsuei continued to the follow Dalis to where the he was led to a shoddy looking house.
The first thing that Zetsuei noticed about the house was the smell. It was so sickly sweet that it had caused him to gag on reflex. His head throbbed painfully as he witnessed more information being force-fed to him. He took a moment to gather himself before being introduced to his new "family".
As Zetsuei worked for Dalis, he slowly became aware of her true intentions for him and going even further her true self. Dalis was a danava like himself and though his body was trying to tell him the truth of her nature, he was neither intelligent nor mature enough to use it. The demon woman that he encountered that day was a danava of addiction, who used her blood to make thralls out of other demons who partook of her blood.
Now Zetsuei had found this out early enough but it was 120 years before he acquired the physical and mental strength to resist her. It was par for the course that he kill her, but he found that he couldn't. It wasn't Dalis's power holding sway over him still, but his own body was keeping him from finishing her off as if she was still needed for something. In the end, he decided to gather what few things he had acquired and left her behind. A couple of years later, after being made a slave, he fell into the ownership of an Elder Demon who would later become his teacher: Dellius Meins. Though originally thinking of Zetsuei as nothing more than a Guinea pig for his experiments, he took an interest to Zetsuei's inquisitive nature and taught him everything about the world to that point. He was still the slave of Meins but he soaked everything in and began to study himself when he was alone. Rather than be locked up, he had begun to travel alongside Dellius to help out with labor and research. As Zetsuei learned more about the world around him, many opportunities to escape had presented itself to him, though he was in no rush. Dellius was the closest thing to an actual father to him, though he wasn't so ignorant of his position that he would act on it.
began to travel around, he noticed other people around him as well. One thing that was prevalent was that size and strength seemed to be what mattered most. As such he hid his true form under the façade of a much larger man. Even if he wasn’t truly strong, he had picked up on faking it convincingly. As he grew older he began taking a small interest in other people. He loved to learn more about other people; the intrigue was far too great. Unfortunately, people had shunned and even attacked Zetsuei when he attempted to communicate. Shouts and screams were irritating with how his senses shifted often. Every attempt at making long lasted friends ended up in rejection at some shape or form. It was then that demon began to notice just how people out right ignored him and whatever he did. Even cuts and blows that should have been avoided were ignored as “beneath” them. This suited Zetsuei well as spying on what other people did in the day. His ability to gather information was just one of the skills that helped him survive. As time grew he learned, things like food, clothes, and money, he could easily steal. Despite this, he could never be content with what he had. This sensation inside him couldn’t be placed. He just knew something was keeping from being ambitious. Besides he was a bit of a pariah now and what he had learned and experience about people had made him much wiser when it came to others.

I. Eternal Partner/Conceptual World» Conceptual World:
The world is a large city filled with white and blue lights and colors though the ground is completely untouched are covered with dirt, litter, and grass. The entire city is somewhat infested with fireflies that glow black and red. There are also inhabitants of the world who have violet skin and no faces who wander about. While they show no expression, there is only a sense of disdain when you are around them and they tend to be aggressive if a person lingers in the same area for long. Each firefly is actually one of his many minds. It should also be noted that the city and people are scaled up significantly, making Zetsuei roughly the size of a baby Chihuahua. » Rilīja Attributes:

» Aliṅgana State Powers: (What sort of powers does your Danava Demon possess while in this form? The primary objective of this release form is to ultimately come to terms with whatever your origin, past, concept or being is.

You could then begin to take your fire usage to the next level by having more fire related abilities, enhancing your current techniques and even having new power altogether; but on the condition that they are related to your base. So, for the fire user, it might be possible for him to control Lava or Solar Energy while in an Alingana State; but it wouldn't be possible for him to control all the elements or something like that. )

Pictures are also accepted.)
» Unnata Release Powers: (What sort of powers does your Danava Demon advance in while in Unnata? The primary focus in this transformed state is to ultimately, as the title says, advance.
