I am the bone of my sword...Demon TemplateName:
Alter Archer Age: UnknownGender:MaleAffiliation:
Loyal servant to Touketsu.Appearance
: Somewhere in the deep, dark void within the cave, nothing could be seen. Nothing but black, pure black. All was silent, only the sound of wind rushing in and out of the dark depths of the cave being echoed throughout the structure of the naturally carved tunnel. It appeared like the cave was empty at first, not a single soul or creature even near the entrance. It was as if the area was haunted, possessed by a dark aura that scared off anyone who dare neared its mouth. People naturally tended to avoid this cave, due to rumors about dark, evil beings lurking within, ready to gut out anyone foolish enough to enter. It appears that everyone has heeded those ghastly tales well, or so it seems.
The sounds of footsteps could be heard from deep inside the dense, inky blackness of the cave. At first, it was quite faint, being so quiet that only a bunny could pick up the sound. But slowly, as time passed by, the steps steadily increased in volume. It sounds like someone was actually making his way out of the cave, and that was true. A figure would slowly fade into view as he continued to walk out of the cold, damp tunnel, the light from the waxing crescent moon shining on his figure. He stood a good 187 Cm, his skin a ghastly pale of white, as if something of unspeakable terror drained out the color from his body, and a set of short, groomed back hair of the same bright tone of white, the spikes from the top and back of his head pointing back at the black void behind him. His appearance was slightly reminiscent on a certain Quincy, Archer. He was adorned in a pair of black, steel toed boots, as well as a set of jet black pants that had leather belts running up the form of his legs in a spiraling pattern, seemingly placed there erratically, without organization. The black male Sarong, with a dark red loincloth he wore was slightly tattered at the frontal corners, the torn fabric gently wavering in the cold wind of the night. His sarong was held up by a fat, leather belt with a large, golden buckle, the center of the belt hanging slightly lower than the sides. He also had on a dark red armor vest, that had two leather belts on the inner ridge of his shoulder, one connected to the corner of his shoulder blade, the lower one loose, dangling freely in the night air. A pair of thin, small leather belts were placed over the collar of his vest to keep it closed. It appears that this man has quite a liking to adding belts to his wardrobe in unnecessary places. On his right shoulder was a small tattoo etched on the center, the symbol being given by Touketu himself. He had on a pair of pitch black gloves, one that ran up to the tip of his elbow, and the other being connected to his armor vest. The right glove was fingerless, while the left glove had only the thumb, ring, and pinky portions of the glove cut out. Just like with Archer, the back of his gloves have large, circular, silver plates to provide style, and a little protection. Lastly, his most notable adornment of all was a black, curved mast that covered his eyes, the right side of the mask extending downwards to partially obscure his cheek and chin from vision. The pale skinned man would slowly extend his left arm out as he spoke. His voice was just like that of Archer's, the only difference was that it sounded more metallic, and loud enough for one to believe that he was speaking through a loudspeaker, with a voice changer to make him sound like some demonic android.
Upon saying that command, reddish veins would begin to glow all over his body. These red contours and veins would glow in a bright shade of scarlet, as the environment around him would begin to feel a sense of immense pressure radiating from his form. The glowing scarlet veins appeared to beat, as if they were real, its tone brightening up for one moment, before slowly dimming back to its original shade the next, repeating the process over every two seconds. These scarlet veins could be seen coursing through his torso, neck, face, arms, and legs. The biggest concentration of the veins however was in his left hand, which appeared to have has every single inch smothered by them.True Form/any Different form: Alter Archer has no other form, lest you consider his weapon transformation, or his "Trace On" to be a different form.Personality: Unlike the original, Alter Archer is a heartless, ruthless killer. He appears to have no emotions whatsoever, his facial expression never appearing to change. He doesn't speak unless he has to, in the case of activating a power or ability. He is ruthless when it comes to combat, and will stop at nothing until his adversary is completely destroyed. He never does more, or less than what he's told to do, so Touketsu must be specific with the tasks that he gives Alter Archer, otherwise he will disregard a certain point that the commander didn't mention. In other words, you can't cut corners with him (though that does not mean he is stupid enough to harm his allies). He shows no signs of fear whatsoever, fitting well with his cold, vile appearance to give him the guise of a ferocious tool of death. He would care less who was up against him, it would not damper his efforts one bit. Even when injured, he shows no sign of pain or slowing down whatsoever, and continues his ruthless assault. His attitude and actions are quite reminiscent of a ninja's, showing no sign of emotion or consent, just a single desire to kill that which he is told to kill. Whether it be a puny insect, or everyone in the universe, he will make it so that the dark deed is done.History Before Alter Archer, the fearsome dark lord known as Touketsu wished to rule over all with an iron fist. He desired control and dominance over all that could possibly be controlled and dominated. He knew well that he had a powerful opposition. With many powerful Shinigami, Vizards, Suiguira, and other beings that were god like, Touketsu needed an ace up his sleeve to deal with such pesky beings. To find that one being that could even the odds, he would spend many years searching for a monstrosity capable of taking them all on.
After so much searching, Touketsu finally found what he was looking for. There was a Quincy that went by the name "Archer". Being the young brother of the god like Shinigami, Loki and Hiro Arjan. It appears that the man had some secret abilities within him. Powers that he has yet to find in himself. Touketsu wanted to utilize that power, so he would end up partaking on the arduous task of creating an alter image of Archer.
Even for the Dark Lord, this task was quite challenging, using his wicked powers of evil, as well as the great magics from Hell, he would slowly and carefully forge an alter image of the Quincy, a being that can use all of those hidden powers. At last, Alter Archer was completed, being capable of virtuously using all the abilities the original has yet to even learn. Touketsu knew that this creation of his would be very useful later on in bringing down those who would oppose him, so he did not hesitate to train him to use his skills to the finest.
Alter Archer worked to the bone, sharpening his archery and swordsmanship to a level that would rival even the best of Shinigami, he also learned to fully utilize the unique powers he had, so that he would become an intimidating adversary to anyone who fought against him. Since then, he was sent, along with the rest of Touketsu's agents, to bring about havoc and assassinate any targets that the dark lord desires.
Weapons: The swords:
Although Alter Archer wields a great abundance of swords, these are his primary blades. These two, mid size Arabian broadswords were the first pair of swords he ever wielded. One broadsword is a shining silver, while the other is pitch black, with a dark rouge hexagonal pattern that runs through the sides of the blade. The sides of bottom of each blade has a tall, slender triangle in the color of the opposite sword. At the base of each triangle is a Yin-Yang circle, without the dots on each half. The hand guard of the blade is a deep bronze, and the hilt is of black leather.
These weapons have an incredible slicing power, able to slice through even steel. These blades are on the level of a Zanpaukto, in terms of both slicing power and durability.Sword Powers:
Though Alter Archer could do this with any sword he wields, he can overcharge the blades with his reiatsu, then throw the blades at his enemy, the blades spinning so quickly they looks like shining steel discs. Upon impact, the blades explode, each creating an explosion the equivalent of a tomahawk missile.Nine Lives strike:
Archer can perform a technique with these, or any dual wielding swords known as nine lives strike. In this technique, Archer moves his arms so quickly, they appear to be a barely distinctive blur, unleashing 9 precise, clean slashes upon his adversary in a mere of a second.Greater Form:
When the event calls for a stronger set of blades, Alter Archer can transform his primary weapons into a greater form. His two broadswords grow drastically in size, taking the appearance of a pair of demonic wings, though the proportions of the blade make it as big as a large Arabian Broadsword, the length tripling, and the width of the top of the blade doubling. These wing shaped blades retain the same colors of bright silver and black. A thin, glowing red aura surrounds his blades. The slicing power of the blades increase, being capable of even slicing Zanpaukto for any wilder below 1-2. Not only that, but the blades appear to increase Alter Archer's speed drastically, making it appear like he is soaring and gliding through the ground at break neck speed. He is capable of slashing at the opponent with an even greater speed than before.Sword Abilities:
In Greater Form, the blades leave a glowing, blood red trail wherever they were swung or thrown at, the trail slowly fading away after one second. although it does look all pretty, it can make it for one to trace Alter Archer's swift movements more easily. Though this may seem disadvantageous at first, it is actually a small hint to the ability these blades wield. Archer can create a shadow effect with each and every swing of his blades. One swing can bring about five more slashes in succession after the primary strike, totaling six strikes in one hit. To make it simple, imagine Archer swinging down a sword once, leaving a brightly glowing band of scarlet light in the shape of his blade. The glowing blade would slightly dim as another glowing band of light separates from it, slashing in the same direction as the original blade. This repeats itself until the band of light dissipates completely, completing six strikes in one blow over the course of one second. These glowing shadow strikes hit with just as much speed and force as the original blade, increasing the damage and destruction the original slash brought with each and every added impact. In the case that he fires out his sword as an arrow, the arrow would seemingly repeat itself five more times, firing in the same direction as the original. In short, Alter Archer wields a pair of Valmanways. If ever the case that Archer would be pushed back or knocked into the path of his sword during an attack, he will end up getting sliced up by the shadow effect of his blade.The Bow:
Alter Archer possesses the exact same bow as the original, being composed of a black material. The shape of the bow is thin, except for the center, which is larger than the rest of the bow, and has a handle for him to grip on when firing arrows. Alter Archer is just as skillful at archery as the original, having a superb accuracy and an incredible arrow speed to boot. Alter Archer tends to fire swords of all types and sizes with this bow, even capable of firing a buster blade as if it were a mere arrow, with the same precision and speed. He is capable of firing arrows at an inhuman speed, making him an even deadlier marksman.Powers:Mystic Detection: From constant use of his unique abilities, Archer grasp over the basics of his power. With this simple ability dubbed Mystic Detection, he is capable of sensing the presence of anyone who nears him, being able to discern power, and location, with this sense alone. Only those who specifically cloak themselves from his power can escape from this unique form of detection. He mainly uses this to fight when he has the mask on.
The mask: The mask isn't just there to make Alter Archer appear cool. It does two things. First, it masks his Reiatsu so it appears that he is a lot weaker than he his, allowing for surprise attacks for those who underestimate him. The second function is to filter out all the energies he can see in one's form and weapons. Not simply limited to Reiatsu and Reiyoku, but all kinds of energies related to one's auras. When the mask is removed, Archer is capable of seeing all these energies that flow to and from a person. Though the mask does nothing to hinder Archer's normal vision.
Sharpened Hearing: If there's ever the case that Archer's Mystic Detection fails him, he can always rely on his heightened sense of hearing to keep track of his opponent's movements. Touketsu made it so that Archer had an incredible sense of hearing, being able to hear even the most subtle of sounds, as simple as a pin drop. He also makes it so that Archer doesn't feel pain from hearing any super loud noises.
Mystic Resistance: Alter Archer, having been an avid user of his unique abilities, thanks to Touketsu has built up a strong resistance to certain attacks, mainly those in magic and the like. But doesn't stop from there. Thanks to Mystic Resistance, all forms of pressure, influence, and magic are less effective on him, allowing him to endure harsher environments, stronger magics, and immense pressure. To bring this into example, a poison type attack that would kill a person in 5 minutes would take twice as long to kill Archer.
Synced Union: Archer is linked to Touketsu's special network, being able to share information, visuals, and even power to and from him, as well as his fellow agents that are linked to Touketsu. This proves very useful to get a closer glimpse at the enemies so that he can know exactly what to bust out on them.
Tracing: Archer's most commonly used ability is that which he calls "Tracing". Activated by the simple command "Trace: On.", Archer can replicate swords, not only being able to recreate its shape and substance, but also its supernatural powers, its abilities, and even its entire history. With this unique method, granted by the seemingly godly power he wields, Archer can create and use mystic weapons like Zanpaukto without the need of a Zanpaukto spirit, nor does he have to chant out the required words for Bankai. Even if Archer only sees the sealed blade, he can replicate the blade in any of it forms, thanks to Tracing. Though his method varies depending on what type of blade he wishes to replicate, this is his main method for Tracing.
1. Judging the concept of creation
2. Hypothesizing the basic structure
3. Duplicating the composition material
4. Imitating the skill of its making
5. Sympathizing with the experience of its growth
6. Reproducing the accumulated years
7. Excelling every manufacturing process
As of now, Tracing does have its limits.
First and foremost, Archer must see the blade in order to Trace it. He is incapable of tracing swords he has not seen yet, which would put him at a disadvantage to anyone who has their blade hidden within them (or if none of Touketsu's agents are there to use Synced Union, since Archer can't directly see objects. Although it wouldn't apply if Archer has already seen the blades from an earlier battle.) (Take for example: Radioactive's Zanpaukto). Second, when it comes to tracing mystical objects like Zanpaukto, he can only be limited to the use of that blades Shikai (Lest the Zanpaukto is below 0 tier). There are also certain Zanpaukto that he cannot utilize anything beyond the sealed state (Anything beyond 0-2). For Sacreds, Archer can only utilize the 1st and second form of the Sacreds for users above 1-1. For any sacred user at or below 1-1, Archer can use all three forms of the Sacred.
The blades that Archer produces are not permanent, and will break in a day, or possibly a week, depending on the amount of of focus on the weapon.
These are the exact quantity of blades per battle Archer can make before he becomes exhausted
50 regular swords
15 non Zanpaukto/Sacred mystical weapons
During Unlimited Blade Works, Archer can produce twice as much blades as before (Except for the normal swords, which is set to infinite). At the end of a battle, in the case that there is another one occurring in the thread, Archer must wait ten posts before his limit is reset again.
Reinforcement: Another basic of Archer's unique abilities, this is very much like how Alchemy can harden the substance of a certain object, except it DOES apply to the living as well. Reinforcement is used for the purpose of pushing a certain basis to its utmost. By applying Reiatsu to the desired object, Archer can enhance the existence of the target. This like adding on to thing that is already complete. If it fails, the target will receive it as a poison. To enhance the target's existence could be something along the lines of, strengthening that object's durability, making it sharper, adding nutrition to food, or, in the case of living things, increasing one's strength and durability. Reinforcement can be used as a means of overiding any source of negative effect or gradual damage that is esoteric, or exoteric. For example, using reinforcement on one's self can end up overidding the poision or source of negative influence affecting you, whether it be physical, ethereal, or magical. Reinforcement on another person is the most difficult, while Reinforcement on anything vague is impossible. Although he used to be well adept in the art of reinforcement, Archer has plenty to work on till he fully masters this unique ability. He has yet to use reinforcement on any other person, using it mainly on his own weapons or other objects. As of now, Archer cannot reinforce any weapons he traced.
Alteration: Branching off of Reinforcement, Alteration is similar to the art of Alchemy in that it can alter the shape and substance of something. Although Alteration is capable of doing it much more efficiently, since less reiatsu is required. Yet again, the DOES apply to the living, albeit quite difficult. Using this unique ability, Archer can morph his blades into other weapons, like bows, energy arrows, or, in conjunction with Tracing, other swords. With this, Archer is capable of altering the structure of the blade, while retaining its mystical properties (example: changing a hellfire sword so it is shaped like a hellfire arrow.)
Self destruction: any user of a Zanpaukto can end up destroying their own blade if they misuse it, or overpower it with their reiatsu. This is something they try their hardest to avoid. However, Archer uses this to his advantage when it comes to firing swords at his enemies. By overcharging the blade with reiatsu, he can cause the weapon to self to destruct on impact, increasing the intensity of damage. Firing swords of immense slicing capability at incredible speeds, along with the ability to self destruct, can be a devastating combination that can take down a high tier opponent with ease. If used in conjunction with Alteration to turn the sword into an arrow, its piercing power drastically increases, along with the weapon's self destruction. Take for example, Archer takes a mystic sword that uses Black Flames and alters it into an arrow, while overcharging it with reiatsu to make it self destruct on impact. Upon firing the arrow,it will explode into a powerful burst of black flames upon contact. This doesn't just apply to mystic weapons. He can do this with any sword he pleases, although Zanpaukto and Sacreds give off larger explosions than ordinary swords.
Unlimited Blade Works: His most powerful move, upon completing a chant, Archer can manifest a world of infinite blades where the battlefield is. Anyone that is anywhere nearby Archer when he uses this will also be brought into this world (You have to be out of the battlefield for it to not effect you.) Those who are caught in (including Archer) will be placed anywhere in the world. Archer can sense the presence of all others at all times within Unlimited Blade Works. Once this world is created, no one can get in, or out of Unlimited Blade Works, no matter how hard they try. Portals, rifts, and teleportation will all prove futile in getting out or in Unlimited Blade Works. The only way out is by either killing Archer, or by Archer willing it so that the world dissipates and they return to the regular battlefield. As of now, Archer's limits on Tracing, Alteration, and Replication decrease, allowing him to use twice the amount of weapons he could make during battle, as well as an unlimited amount of normal swords. He can spawn and direct swords anywhere he pleases. Lastly, his control over the blades in this world are ABSOLUTE. One may try and use the swords for themselves, but when it comes to controlling the blades, Archer always has the upper hand. So be warned.
The following are the weapons he has seen, and can thus trace.
Current mystical weapons: A whole assortment of demonic blades that Touketsu himself personally showed him.
Current Zanpaukto: (Max limit: 9 at a time)

?Weakness:If one were to disrupt Archer's mind while he was in the process of Tracing the sword (more-so mind alteration and surprises than threatening environments), the blade will end up brittle, and break easily. So any specialist in illusions and mind alteration would easily be able to break down Alter Archer's assault with ease. There is also the case that another can use his own sword against him, in the event that his sword doesn't self destruct or is taken from Unlimited Blade Works before he could stop that person from using the blade. Alter Archer is also limited to the number of blades of certain types he can create.Role Play Sample:
The appearance is enough.
