|Subject Post 1Subject: Johnathan Walker [APPROVED, 0-4] Fri Jul 02, 2010 8:39 pm|| |
Character Theme: Name:
Hero of true Light
18The Host Race:
A Quincy is nearly always known for being a very proud warrior and defender, but Johnathan takes it to a whole other level. His pride demands him to always keep on fighting, and to go through all hardships, to see everything through. He doesn't accept any loss, just like his Quincy Pride demands. The same goes for the Pride of those he loves or sees as friends - step on it, and he will fight you with all that he has.
~Confidence & Arrogance~
Beware of the confidence if you ever try talking to Johnathan. He has so much of it it might suffocate you. No matter against who, he always believes he is stronger and can win - even against god, John would fight without looking back. He can be quite arrogant at first sight, and only sees a few people as equal. Though he is a good leader, he never stops exclaiming how he is more awesome than them, but that they can always try to reach his level. Strangely enough, this attitude has given him the status of the most liked leader in his organization, as he is willing to train everyone in 'being awesome'.
Being called 'awesome' by John is the highest proof of friendship you will ever get. Only a few people are called this by him. The only higher stage would be love - and that belongs to Natsuki.
~Friendship and Courage~
Of course, Johnathan most of the time only plays the arrogant badass. He actually cares for nearly everyone, and if he sees someone has a friend, would never let them down. His determination doesn't come from confidence alone, either - it's courage deep inside of him, a courage not many have. Even in the face of death, he doesn't fear death itself - but rather to die and disappoint his friends and his love. This is why he can always push forward, and why he is able to assume the ultimate form of his Ziamichi Spirt.
The Quincy believes in his own justice - which doesn't mean a bad thing, in fact. Rather, his jusitce is easy to understand: Power is there to protect, not to destroy. Whoever tries to kill the innocent and abuses his powers, will face his burning wrath, and each and every fight of him is to bring down 'evil' whereever he finds it. While Johnathan is called 'Hero of true Light', he has no problems fighting against those using Light element, either - he says that 'true Light' is only in the true heart of someone, their essence of being, and the one thing that's truely eternal in this universe.
Simply put, Johnathan Walker is a good guy. It is not just an act, but his true self - sure, he'll mess up from time to time. He knows that he has anger issues at times, and that he can be quite a hypocrite too, but will also openly admit that if pressured. In fact, John never, even once, lies - always speaking the truth. Even while being somewhat clumsy with his own emotions, he doesn't shy away from showing them openly on his face.
~To be a Hero~
Deep down, John desires nothing more than to be a true, complete hero. He knows that he can never be one, though - every single time he closes his eyes, the faces of the souls he destroyed pass by his view, and he honors even fallen enemies as he would comrades in silence. He desires an end to violence, a perfect peace, and has no qualms about allying himself with anyone and anything to achieve that, as seen by his friendship with Zefonse Kaizme, his former mortal enemy.
~Duality of Self~
With time, you grow attached to things - and Johnathan took that one step further. By now, he and Shironeko consider themselves to be extensions of one another - you cannot simply isolate a trait of Johnathan and say, 'this is definitely not his spirit', as they are both the same person - just showing different sides of themselves, making them a true duality spirit. Their bickering is always friendly and is pretty much what a normal person might be thinking over in their own head, just taken to a new extreme that only he has.Appearance:
Jonathan has pitch black, rather long hair with he keeps as a ponytail most of the time - he only lets them fall free when there is no chance of a fight. His eyes shine in a grey, unless he gets angry - then they change into yellow. Once he uses Crafting of the Dream, they turn red instead. Most of the time, he is seen either grinning or dead serious, depending on the situation.
Another remarkable thing about the Quincy is his height. Towering at about 1,95 meters, he clearly outmatches most japanese men and women, but he has a rather slim figure, leading to a not really scary body build. His clothing ranges from casualwear with typical Quincy signs to a dignified complete Quincy uniform or even buisness attire, depending on the situation.Background/History:
John was born as the child of two other Quincy, making him a complete pureblood and heir to the title of 'German Quincy Leader', a line passed down from his fathers side. While his father was a full on german, his mother was half british, half japanese, and hailed from London - until she fell in love with his father while he was on a buisness trip, and moved over to germany.
This was in a time far before our current events, obviously - Johnathan was an only child, and at a young age already showed a magnitude of affinity for the Quincy Craft. At the age of 3, he created his first spirit bow by pure instinct upon picking up his fathers Quincy Cross out of curiosity - and he had learned how to actually shoot a normal bow since he was only 2 years old.
Other than that, his life wasn't too eventful - since Quincy were only slowly resurfacing across the globe, he and his family were, for that time at least, the 'last german Quincy', so they kept a low profile. While John learned about spirits and the evil ones, Hollows, he was also told to always stay away from them until he was old enough to fight for himself and defend his own life accordingly.
But obviously, the Hollows had other plans. On a camping trip that his parents took him on, while he was only 5 years old, the young Quincy got seperated from his parents and lost - not that big of a deal, with their spiritual senses, they could find their son again easily enough. The real problem was that others found him first.Ziamichi Spirit:
Whenever she appears before outside his spirit, she is a huge, winged and white cat, thus leading to him naming the spirit Shironeko. The eyes of the being are burning red. In his spirit, she is either in her cat-form or takes on a humanoid shape - a Hybrid between animal and human, she has white angel wings on her back, a slightly animalistic face, and very short, silky fur all over her body. However, she never wears any clothing. In this form, her eyes are red as usual.
Shironeko doesn't seem like it at first glance, but she is actually a 'heavenly spirit' - how exactly that can be, nobody knows. After death, this strangely aware cat became an angel who is only able to survive when inhabiting another body or full soul, and without it, she would disappear after a short time, forever. Her personality is hard to describe, but would borderline between Tsundere, caring partner for John and playful with her enemies, often teasing them and trying to get them mad at her.Ziamichi History:
Shironeko is not a spawn from Johnathans own soul, dark side or maybe even light side. She was a purely black cat once... a nearly normal animal, but with spiritual awareness. This lead to her gaining real intelligence, but she wasn't able to utilize the powers she had - the powers to realize dreams of those around her - due to lack of Reiatsu. Her death came through the not so nice way of being run over by a truck - which had been led astray by a swarm of weak Hollows. Shironekos soul was set free from her body, and it was revealed to look like an Albino cat, strangely enough - still, she couldn't survive without a body. Her soul was unstable, and she fled from the Hollows that attacked her mortal self.
Searching for a body to take over or assist, each was fine with her, she was nearly out of power when she heard fighting noises. Flying off to a lighting in a forest, she saw a young Quincy, maybe around 12 years old, trying to fend of a magnitude of Hollows, under them two Adjuchas - until he took a mortal blow to the chest and was thrown to the side. His chest was ripped open, his lungh damaged greatly - he only had seconds to live. This was when Shironeko invaded his body, and placed her seal directly over his wound - sealing it off under a thick layer of scarred new body tissue.
Inside of his mind, she was expecting to meet a shattered, scared little kid. But what she found was a scared shitless, but none the less proud Quincy in the dark void of the inner world a person without any Zanpakutō or the similliar had - someone with burning fighting will in his eyes, who could sense her powers - and demanded of her to be allowed to use them at least this once, so that he could fight back against these way too strong Hollows for him as a beginner Quincy.
This was the first day a human ever used Crafting of the Dream, the power with limitless potential. This was the day a 12 year old boy destroyed 2 Adjuchas-class Menos and a giant group of Hollows by himself. This was the day... a legend was born. A legend that is told till today, and still gets longer with each passing day. On that day... Johnathan Walker died and was reborn - as the Hero of true Light.Ziamichi powers:
Shironeko has cat-like agility, thus making her fast as hell, nearly impossible to miss a step and her spiritual claws are pretty sharp. Her ability is 'crafting of the dream', witch turns one imagination into reality in a spiritual battle. If you face Shironeko directly in Johnathans soul, nobody stands a real chance - her powers get funeled by dreams and light of the world. In practice, this means she creates weapons and phenomena in a world that changes shape according to her will as well, making her powers quite akin to a god. Since this is all inside of Johnathans mind, this is of course all not real to the outside world, and even being killed in here by Shironeko would only eject someone out.Unique Traits:
Johnathan gains the power to use Crafting of the Dream himself, even though he is limited by the amount of Reishi he can take in at once. Without assuming a 'Form', he can only utilize a small amount of the whole power - being able to use it in 'everyday uses'.
Once he assumes a Form, he changes the shape of his Quincy Weapons into forms fitting his imagination...Ziamichi Skill Level: Control:

First Form: Johnathan gets 2 black, old-school revolvers without many special powers.
Second Form: Instead of old revolvers, he now gets two rather modern-looking, big hand guns. Also, some reishi seemingly form some sort of cape on his back.
Third Form: Put away the peashooters, the big guns are now on. Each Handgun is now about 30 cm long, can fire blasts at rapid speeds and they are connected with chains to his arms and hands, making it possible to do real gunfire-dances and Melee fighting. The cape is now a tad bit longer. Also, red roses are now engraved into the metal of the lack guns, and some black rose petals are visible on the cape.
Final Form: Did I say big guns in the third form? Then, these are MASSIVE guns. Doubling their length into something that humans or Quincy should never be able to use, they are now completely white instead of black, with black roses on each side, engraved into the spiritual metal. Also, he now wears a mantle woven out of reishi (kinda like Shingami Clothing is made out of it, so no sparkling and stuff), also in white with black and red roses and thorns ornamented into it. The long hair is gone and now a short, white hairstyle is where they once where, with some black stripes remaining. Instead of spirit metal chains, now there are actual spiritual bands holding the guns for extra stability. The final and also rather big addition is that the cape is gone, but now, two blinding white wings are on the back of the Quincy, enabling him to absorb way more spirit energy than ever before, and move at higher speeds!
Hero Form: Not that much changes compared to Final Form, though Johnathan now looks younger, more like 16~17 instead of 18. His eyes turn from red to yellow, the hair stays the same, while the rose patterns on his white mantle also stay.
In this form, the weapons suddenly shrink down to the size of normal handguns - completely in white, with one single black rose pattern seemingly growing around the whole gun. The whole weapon looks very finely crafted, almost filigrane, as if it would break upon touching. In truth, his two giant guns simply get compact, making them easier to wield, faster chargeable and generally more badass. Charged Shots with these change from looking like shining bullets to short bursts of energy without real bullet form, looking more like Quincy Arrows, still completely red, while in rapid fire, the bullets really look like Rose Petals in red and black - but still, they fly just as fast as his old spirit bullets.
Ability: While normally, Crafting of the Dream only allows one kind of weapon, Hero Form unlocks it's true potential. The two compact handguns can change into other weapons now!
Doppel Schneider: Both Guns change form, as if the metal would melt into itself and shift into new positions, making two Seele Schneider, one red and one black, with slightly curved hilts. This is the melee fighting form of them. Used by the command: "Schneide durch die Realität." [Cut through reality]
Krallen der Dämmerung: [Claws of the Dawn] While Doppel Schneider can cut nearly anything thanks to it's vibrating blade nature, there are some things even it can't cut. And this is where this weapon kicks in: The weapons seemingly fuse with his hands, forming long metal gloves with rose patterns on them. Each and every finger part of the gloves has a sharp claw on it's end, and instead of being a vibrating blade, these claws are simply very thin and sharp, to destroy objects repelling spiritual energy. The command phrase is: "Führe uns ins Morgenrot." [Lead us to dawn]
Traumwächter: [Dream Guardian] For this, both weapons are fused together in the hands of the user, creating a huge, spiraling round shield infront of the body of Johnathan. This red shield consists out of millions of small spiritual, vibrating blades, so that they can repell almost any kind of energy blast in random directions and chop anyone to bits stupid enough to attack it barehanded. It can't block Zanpakutō, however. If shrunk down a bit, Johnathan can throw the shield as a boomerang-weapon, cutting through almost anything in it's path. To use it, John has to say the words: "Erwache aus deinem Schlaf." [awaken from your sleep]
Lanze der Quincy: [Quincy Lance] Not really to be mistaken for a weapon from the actual middle ages, this changes the weapons form yet again - it can only be used if they are in handgun form. Fusing both handguns, they form a shoulder-mounted canon that Johnathan has to support with both hands. The giant barrel can fire out highly powered blasts of energy, but no rapid fire is possible with this monster. It takes time to fully charge, but once it does, the energy blast released is strong enough to propell the Ziamichi himself backwards. Being hit by this huge energy blast is quite devastating, as it is reported to even crack spiritually resistant objects. Even one shot takes a lot out of Walker, though, so this is clearly more for surprise attacks or finishing moves. Called by the phrase: "Zeige unseren Stolz." [Show our Pride]
Techniques: These techniques are used with all of his forms, or even without forms partially. They are his main means of attack.
Anti-Poison: Having a spirit of light sealed inside of him, Johnathan has a natural resistance to poisons. He can smoke without ever having the danger of becoming bodily addicted or getting health problems, and can get drunk without damaging his body, for example. 'Chosen' addictions, like the addiction to cigarettes, can still occur.
His anti-poison ability is able to filter out a strangers Reiatsu from Johnathan with enough time, and can even counter small to medium amounts of pure Death Energy, repulsing it and breaking it into a substance similliar to stained glass that is blown away from Johnathans skin.
Rose Petal Storm: Simply pulling the trigger and holding it down, Johnathans constant barrage of bullets is called Rose Petal Storm. In Hero Form, they actually look like rose petals. Each of the bullets is about as strong as a regular Quincy Arrow, and the rate of fire increases in higher Forms.
Rose Thorn Blast: Letting go of the triggers, Johnathan charges energy into his pistols, and can accelerate this in Hero and Final form simply by having his wings. He can also slide of the magazines of his weapons, which are hold in place with a mechanism so that they don't fall out completely, to absorb even faster. A fired Rose Thorn Blast has the strength of a Cero, and Johnathan can release two of those at once, at a maximum of two times a post. If used two times, one post cooldown. If he only uses one, he can follow up immedeatly by letting go of the triggers and pulling them again with a Rose Petal Storm.
Flying Style, Sword of God: Used only with one or two Seele Schneider weapons. Creating platforms with Hirenkyaku, Johnathan raises up multiple ones and arranges them, aiming to create a dome around his opponent, before jumping between them at high speeds and slashing from a nearly impossible angle. The platforms can be created over a long course of time, but it needs to be stated if John creates one, even if it is inivisible to the naked eye, in the post. This is mainly useful for stationary targets and slow targets.
Flying Style, All-Sides Barrage: Literally flying all around the place with his wings and Hirenkyaku, Johnathan bombards the enemy with the small bullets of Rose Petal Storm to pin them into place.
Flying Style, Tsubame Gaeshi: A technique that allows even to cut down a swallow in flight. Lacking the time the legendary wind goddess Misaiko had to develop the true technique, his own is making use of the spiritual threads a Quincy normally learns to use to control their own body. Instead, he projects them outside of his body, and while wielding one Seele Schneider himself, crafts two others within the sweeping motion of the first blow - thus creating three slashes at the same time, creating three concurent slashes, leaving no room to block it - even if one of the vibrating blades would be blocked, the other two would hit. Dodging this is incredibly hard if you are too close too John and don't exceed him in speed by far. The best defense is to not let him use this to begin with.
After the slashes all appear, all but one of the Seele Schneiders disappear immedeatly, making it look like one blade slashed three times at the same moment.
Dancing Style, Spin Twist: Literally turning himself into a spinning top, Johnathan rotates around himself with the wings, if he has them, folded onto his back, releasing bullets into all directions around him with Rose Petal Storm. Used to hit opponents moving too fast for normal attacks.
Dancing Style, Claw Snatch: Either using his hands like claws, or the actual claws of Hero Form, Johnathan trusts his instincts and reaction alone while nearly having his eyes completely closed, to capture the arm of an attacking opponent into his hand, evading possibly used blades and even enduring a stab or slash in the process to capture a faster enemy, before resorting to the gun in the free hand to use a single Rose Thorn Blast for massive damage should it work. The movement while in this is so fluid that it seems like Johnathan is fleeting water rather than a person.
Dancing Style, Cat Steps: Focusing more on his footwork than normal, Johnathan gets into a position where he does crazy sidesteps and jumps no normal human or soul could keep balance during to evade, completely concentrating on that and charging up energy. Should he see an opening, he will twist around himself and release a fully powered Rose Thorn Blast. More of a battle stance than an actual attack.
Breaker Style, Gun Battle: Using his guns in close combat as if they were swords or daggers attached to his arms with chains, rather than backing away and trying to get range again, Johnathan can be quite dangerous simply from the chance of knocking you KO with a strong beat to the head. Also, whenever he gets the change of a barrel pointing at the body of the opponent, he will immedeatly pull the trigger.
Breaker Style, Dream Chain: Crafting a white chain out of dreams and Reishi, Johnathan aims to capture the opponent in it by thwirling it around them. It has the strength of a medium to high level Bakudo, depending on the amount of used Reishi and 'Imagination'.
Breaker Style, Daybreak: Aiming at the opponent from afar and carefully judging the distance, Johnathan aims a sniping shot directly at the head with a Rose Thorn Blast to end the fight before it even starts.
Breaker Style, Nightfall: Storming at the opponent with no regards for his own safetly, shutting off his feeling of pain for a moment, he aims to get into absolute close range and press his guns against the opponents body to ensure a hit with a Rose Thorn Blast, and will most of the time suffer recoil damage to his arms from the erupting explosion.
Rebirth: Johnathans maybe greatest ability of them all. Using dreams and Reishi, he can actually produce living flesh and tissue, even bones, to reconstruct body parts he has lost. The reconstructed part will have less strength than the original for a time, and using this is extremely tiring and taxing on the mind. Replacing an arm of leg won't have consequences in the long run, but: Should Johnathans entire body or at least 50% of it be destroyed, but his soul remain, then he can reconstruct himself completely, rebirthing his body by using his final dream. However, doing this will cripple his ability to synchronize with Shironeko, effectively making it impossible to use his Ziamichi-Powers - a state not unlike actual death for him.
Apart from those, he has one final technique and ability combined...
All Dreams UniteTurning his body into the center of all dreams of his friends and family, a white thread will connect him to all those on his side that are near him before turning invisible and not being able to be affected by any means, connecting his soul to theirs. Taking in their dreams, hopes and emotions into himself, Johnathan changes from a 'person' into what can only be called an 'existance'. In this trance-like state, he has an unlimited amount of 'imagination', meaning he is not limited in the amount of weapon changes and weapon reforms he can do.
Also, the strongest move he can perfom becomes aviable. 'All Emotions Release' is channeled either into a weapon or into his fist, and releases an enormous, white light from collected energy, before attacking. This move is many times more powerful than even the Quincy Lance.
Using All Dreams Unite alone is intensely taxing on Johnathan, and he won't be able to use his powers for quite some time after it. All Emotions Release, though, puts so much strain on his body, mind and soul that the chances of it NOT being fatal are slim to non-existant. This is an ability not supposed to be able to be used, turning Emotions and Dreams into an attack - thus he has to pay the ultimate price for using it, should he decide to do that.
Control: 6 normally, since cats don't like being controlled. 10 during Hero Form.
Ziamichi Class: A
Drawbacks: Since Shironeko pushes Johnathans body past any limits a Quincy has, the longer he stays in the Form, the stronger muscle pain he gets afterwards, rendering him vulnerable. Also, his wings in Final and Hero Form are easy to wound, being his weakpoints. Hero Form can ONLY be used when a fight is dead serious - it cannot be used in sparing matches or for showing off.
Roleplay Sample: (Show us your stuff!)
Quincy Powers: John is very talented in Hirenkyaku. While he is not the fastest user, he clearly is the most nimble of them all - he NEVER misses a step, and can't loose his balance, because of his cat senses.
Bow Description: See Forms.
