» Name Of Character:
Sylvia Brauer » Link To Character: Link » Upgrading: Himmelsseelenschneider:
An offensive variant of the Himmlische Marionette; by refining the strings of reishi, Sylvia turns them into a powerful mid-ranged weapon. These razor wires move with a speed and flexibility equal to Sylvia's skill in reishi manipulation, and otherwise exert a force and possess durability one step lesser. The wires can cut through material such as stone and steel with ease, but can be stopped by a significant spiritual barrier constructed with equal skill to Sylvia's reishi manipulation. Through the implementation of a seele schneider in these attacks, Sylvia's effective reishi manipulation is increased by one level for the purpose of bypassing barriers. Himmlischer Anzug:
A variant of the Himmlische Marionette; Sylvia uses the strings as a basis to cover herself in a thin veil of reishi, bolstered with her own reiryoku. This veil may appear however she sees fit within the confines of her own size, though it is as fragile as cloth. With this, Sylvia may change her appearance from anywhere between a new set of clothes to near-total invisibility against the backdrop of her environment. While active, this ability passively boosts Sylvia's defense, raising her durability to the upper range for its level. Furthermore, the latter effect can be noticed and seen through by those with powers of deduction equal to Sylvia's reishi manipulation; or a greater mental focus, instead.
With an understanding of reishi manipulation below Elite, moving from one place will throw off the camouflauge, giving away Sylvia's position. Likewise, use of hirenkyaku with an understanding of reishi manipulation below Master will do the same. Himmel Wand:
An arrow charged with excess force. Once fired into the heart of an oncoming attack, it explodes with a powerful gale that disperses nearby reishi and reiryoku. This arrow nullifies non-physical and energy-based attacks of a level equal to or lesser than Sylvia's reishi manipulation, or can forcibly move people and objects with wind of similar strength. This arrow does not otherwise cause additional damage upon impact. Skill Upgrade:
Reishi Manipulation from [Adept] to [Advanced] » Why:
As detailed here
, Sylvia's practice with reishi manipulation-based techniques has expanded her skill with reishi and reiryoku, both to make constructs more quickly and to use the latter in any capacity at all. Himmelsseelenscheider and Himmel Wand are new techniques entirely (the latter doesn't appear in the training thread). I'm also seeking approval for a rewrite of Himmlischer Anzug that better defines its limits and adds mechanics to see through the camouflage. » Extra:
If approved, Himmlischer Anzug's defensive boon would be replacing that of the equipment Frack entirely for story purposes.
