Immoral Dealer, Mr Lets make a deal, Provocateur of 'Want' » Age:
673 Formed to sentience Only looks to be 24» Gender:
Anyone who is willing to give him what he wants (Technically Rogue)» Shifter Appearance Written:
Reigen appears for the most part as a slender yet handsome male in his mid twenties. Having green hair that he keeps to a particular length so as to not disturb him while he works it only is long at the fringe where the hair can sometimes cover his eyes to an extent. For the most part his hair is looks shaggy and unkempt only to become quite neat and well-formed when he takes off his hat. Standing at 6'1 Reigen is never seen outside his usually suit while in this form. The suit, while made to look respectable is seemingly quite relaxed wear for Reigen as he does not seem at all prim and proper in it on the suit there are many uncommon items belt buckles on the blazer for example, as well as a pocket watch stitched into the trousers for quick release and ready use of the item.
For the most part Reigen never takes off his hat. He will only do so to fulfil the wish of someone who asks it of him or to introduce himself in a more appropriate manner however in any other case he will never be seen without the hat while taking on this form and will be perturbed by not having it on his person.» Shifter Appearance Picture:
» True Appearance Written:
While in his true form Reigen takes on an new look that is similar to his previous form but with a few distinct and striking changes. For one while the facade of the suit he wears remains over it comes a yellow cloak that cover the face and most of the body of the demon, the cloak can be draped around him or become shorter depending on the user's wishes. More than this however comes from Reigen's limbs and other parts of his body now exhibiting strange green lights coming from them, this is his true appearance breaking through the facade of humanity that he still holds.
While in this form Reigen's cloak can be used as a defence to incoming attacks being partially sentient from his body and moving him accordingly out of danger if he may not have the strength, this however is only if Reigen still has the strength to manipulate the extension of his self during combat situations.» True Appearance Picture:
____________________________________________________» Personality:The Gentleman:
Reigen tends to act like this in most circumstances. As a man of class the creature will act in a way befitting the most noble and chivalrous men of the earth, his etiquette and his manners towards those whom he will be in the employ of or those he believes would serve his purposes quite well will be near perfect. He will never complain openly to them nor will he doubt the reasoning for their actions in fact he will implore their actions in order to get a grasp of those thing important to them.
Though he would seem perfect the part is only as good as the actor who plays it. His facade of kindness and goodwill hides a thin layer of sarcasm and wit that plays off the insecurities of those around him, he will make a comment or act that seems to be genuinely in the favor of the one he is in the pocket of only to show it as an sarcastic gesture to belittle the person. However in some cases this act or comment will be so little that those around him may not notice his insincerity and see him for what he wants to be seen as, a chivalrous and welcoming man who is willing to make whatever you wish happen, for a price...The Dealer:
This could be seen as his most common personality while not in the employ of another, he could be viewed as a grifter or a travelling salesman but what he wishes to do is not give but to take. His wish is to put his prey into a position that they become desperate enough to make a deal with him for something he will do for them, or give back to them... It is here that most will see the sardonic nature of the dark creature in all its glory.
He will, depending on who wants to make the deal act with tact or belittling pity for them and act as a sort of crutch to make them trust him and not feel as if they are being cheated or mocked by the creature. However he will act for the most part in a superior manner while making a deal with another Reigen's priority is not to be his mark's friend but to lull them into thinking his is only to take what he wants from them and leave them to their own fate, he can be kinder than this and almost always holds up his end of a deal but that is usually due to the fact that the person he aided still has something he can take.The True Self:
Nothing short than a walking mass of complexes, Reigen has little to no care for those around him and only wishes for one thing, to have everything under his domain. This is means that nothing short of him wanting to be the only existence in the entirety of creation is enough for the demon, he has little to no trust in others whether it be above or below him Reigen feels that the only thing he can rely on is his own perceived greatness and others are simply his tools or objects and signs of respect or kindness to subordinates are simply shows that he does not like it when people play with his things.
This get to be so much so that if something cannot be his in its entirety he would see it destroyed or at least spent of all its usefulness, a husk of its former self. It is due to this that Reigen is practically incapable of any form of love or even any type of lust other than the want to take things from others he finds the act of 'copulating' a relationship to be little more than friction and will usually only relent if it is to someone's wishes he do so. Overall Reigen has a goal of near enough impossible heights, as such his own form of insanity may seem strange to others but to him wanting everything is the most common trend of humans, spirits and demons alike, and it is not like a demon to buck a trend...» Likes:
Money, Power, Smiles on people's faces as he stomps them into the ground, The feeling of superiority over others, those little umbrellas that you find in fruity cocktails.» Dislikes:
Charity, Generosity, Love for the fellow man, Swiss chocolate, Being without his hat, Being without his hat on rainy days.
Born a Shadow-
In the dark shadows of hell where the light of the fires that constantly burn dare not reach, a small sliver of the darkness began to stir and twist into something more, this being had little less than a figure, less than a shape of a man it was born in the shape of what had surrounded it, shadow. The creature had gained little sentience for what it was but what it had helped it distinguish what was the ethereal and what was it now was, as its hands and legs began to form into what it had found to be a appropriate figure of what little the shadows had seen in the hellish landscape that it was onlooking of the creature gained a mouth, it was then that with its forming features it tried to make its first words. All it did was scream to the lands beyond.
The inner working of the world made the creature take on different needs and wants of the creatures that lived within another world, their arrogance and the need for more power, money, women it fueled the creature. But it did more than just that, it gave it a hunger, this was unlike any hunger for nourishment it was a drive more than anything, the creature did not know how to smile but from watching the humans and their greed from the shadows of the world a grin unlike any other would be seen on the unnatural creature as it relished in humanities need for more power, technology, everything.
It was soon that the creature had gained enough of itself to become more than just the shadows in the corner of the eye, it made itself a body from the shadowy depths it was born in, then it feasted on its original home making a suit from the remnants of its birthing pit. As a shape of a hat was made on the creature's head it began to imitate all it had learned in the time it spent growing and amassing knowledge, it took the appearance of one in the world of the living so that if and when it journeyed there it would not look suspicious, unless it wanted to... The first sounds from the creature's mouth had been a scream of madness and uncertainty, now as a newly form demon born from the necessity of all humans the need to get better and want more it took on a name that it jumbled together from the language of humans. And 'his' first words were now. "Who would like to make a deal...."
Business as it is...-
The name Reigen Akogi was known in hushed tones and under the table deals, only those who wanted to see him, truly wanted to make him an offer would find themselves in the presence of an unearthly creature, appearing from nowhere he would ask them what they needed...And what they were willing to give up. For most the deal they made with him seemed to go well, most humans did not want to know the sordid affairs that got them to the top only that it got them there. However they were in debt to creature they had met and knowing when he would collect was the hardest and scariest part to decipher.
It was one human that showed the true personality of Reigen for certain, he needed a transplant for his ailing wife and the demon was perfectly fine with giving it to him he told the human of the risks and the price he would take but he never openly said what he wished from the man. Only a few weeks later the man's wife was already in the prep for surgery at the local hospital, it was here that on the night that the deal was done things seemed at there best. That was until the power to the hospital went out. The man rushed to the window of the operating theatre, the organ that was failing had been removed and the new one was inside his wife, but it was not connected without illumination it would surely mean death for the man's wife he rushed to the directions given for the backup generator, it should have started but it seemed to be malfunctioning.
The man rushed to the generator room, only to find that on the path to the room a long snake like chain rushed its way through the corridor cutting into the doors of patients and doctors in fear of their lives. The chain snaked back to the creature it came from, it crawled back up into the chest pocket of the well dressed man as he checked the time on his pocket watch. With a ungodly smile the man only known as Reigen to the man spoke. "I said I had a price, I've always wanted a backup generator for my own purposes but if you want it. How about we make a deal..." The monster made another claim on a human he always found a way to make his prey weep in sorrow and fear, it was a hobby.
For the man who wants everything-
Reigen's time in the human world was always well spent, he made plenty of deals with humans whether they were forced or made with consent the demon always got what he wanted, it was there that the creature found himself at an impasse however. It was too slow... He could obtain the souls of many humans but those that truly had power, the power he wanted would be harder to manipulate. His strength had grown since his birth in the dark, he was no longer the pitiable creature that had once existed but what still remained was the hunger, the drive for power and need for all things to be better for him and worse for others that made him unsatisfied with what he had.
Reigen was usually a lone wolf, he very rarely kept with a host or a demon master, if he did it was likely to obtain something from them. Being the freelancing demon he was the Reigen was able to take and give services to many who could get him what he wanted but in the light of hell and the human world even with those damned spirits that gathered in places such as Karakura city Reigen was still not what he wanted to be. "More....Need more..."
It wasn't a proclamation of needing more power, strength, courage or luck he simply wanted more. More until it hurt more until the world itself shook at the very footsteps of his need, so much more that the world at his feet would become miniscule at his feet, and then he would take more. Truly he would debase himself when he needed to, he would be what was needed at the time, a warrior, a freedom fighter, a lover, a monster but in all of this he would be more as his hunger grew ever greater and it looked to never stop unless the madman had it all.
____________________________________________________» Natural Abilities:
Curse Effect: Curses are a natural to a demon and work somewhat like a decaying system. For instance, when a demon uses their Curse ability they can inflict sickness on any type of living or spiritual being which in turn can bring about illnesses within them, gradually drain them of their power and ultimately make it very hard for fighting due to the fact that this Curse Effect can eventually begin to heavily weaken the persons Reigoku, Reiatsu and Physical body to the point where it would be well advised to seek medical attention before too long. However, that is not the only use of Curses. It can also be inflicted on a mental level depending on the person's Will Power Skill Sheet and can eventually begin to inflict insanity, madness, distracting thoughts and some succubus class skills.
Affinity For Hell: If a Demon ever gets the chance to foot into hell or has the skill level and power to summon it's presence on the battlefield, they can potentially increase their power by five times just by having it around them. In some instances, in fact, Demon's can even rise one tier level if enough consumes them for the duration of the thread they are in. This is due to the fact that there is a large amount of hellish energy within that place for Demon's to thrive on and it's filled with many hidden elements that were designed to overcharge a Demon in times of crisis. But, in addition to that, the presence of hell augments not only their power abilities but the inherent and magical abilities of said demon; giving improved versions of their abilities or completely new ones altogether.
Skilled Shadow Movement: Reigen has used a large portion of his time to learn how to master the use of Shadow Movement. His skill with it is notable as he can move through seemingly at a speed where the demon appears out of almost thin air, his reliance on such speed however has left him with not much time to empower his defence so to avoid getting hit with any type of weapon is usually Reigen's priority.
Magic skill: Due to his greedy nature Reigen has spent years collecting knowledge on the demon magic though he has a wide base of magic he has learned he relies mostly on the power of certain abilities to defy gravity or to manipulate another into aiding or trusting him, his skill with such powers is quite potent however for the most part other than this he does not have much in the way of magic prowess as he simply does not wish to learn but simply to obtain.
Skills with throwing weapons: Reigen's primary skills come from his use of throwing knives or other objects in his vicinity, more than this his unnatural power of greed has created a power appearing as some sort of chain. Through his will Reigen can manipulate this chain and is highly proficient with the use of the weapons using it in the mid and long ranges however his preference for such range has left him without much skill in the short range and with little protection for his body.
Environment Scanning: Reigen has obtained much skill in the art of scanning for certain powers and people in a city the size of Karakura, he uses this to pinpoint targets and weakened foes/prey for making a deal or simply trying to aid someone that an employer is looking for his skill can pinpoint the target to a degree of about 1% margin of error mostly due to those who he is searching for having a propensity to run if he gets close.» Unique Abilities:
Deceptive Spiritual Power: In order to remain unnoticed and otherwise non-threatening for some employers Reigen has managed to make his spiritual presence quite unnaturally low, when he wishes he can release his full power making a jarring change or simply be at his full potential and still feel quite the same as before, however when he releases his full spiritual prowess the energy becomes quite visible and aggressive towards the enemy forming into dark specter-like images to inhibit fear into Reigen's foes.
Incredible Healing Factor: As a demon Reigen has quite a skill at being tougher than the average human, however he does not have the same power for toughened skin as other demons as such in order to compensate Reigen has an impressive healing factor being able to heal wounds within hours of taking them, the power does leave a lasting effect however as the damage done does not have time to heal with much lasting effect making another wound like it much more damaging.
Chain of Greed: Reigen's primary ability which he can uses is to 'take' a certain item from a person, this ability and its limitation are all in accordance with the ability for Reigen to be in contact with a person. The Chain of Greed is the outlet for which Reigen can obtain objects or things from a person, the snake-like chain when in contact with the person allows Reigen to take something away from them, this power while quite potent does have its limits. For one contact must be made to activate the effect and even then the power of the demon is limited once more.
It is not possible for Reigen to take anything that the user themselves hold dear or important, the connection the user has to an item or a thing is what makes it powerful therefore Reigen could not use such a power to take an enemy's weapon away or to get rid of a cero blast or an attack towards him as they are all extensions of the connection that the user has for an item. More than this Reigen can only take one thing from a person, the limit of this power goes up to three meaning he can take one thing from a maximum of three people, once a item has been taken it can be given back but it cannot be stolen again though he can only take a single item he can use the chain to take another though this is done preferably with inanimate objects not humans or other supernatural creatures. In the case of a item that has a dead owner or if the item's original form has been destroyed or damaged the item taken with appear near the origin of the theft, however it will only reappear if it was a physical item.
Another factor comes from the fact that the time limit to what Reigen stole is dependant on the strength of the user he obtained it from, for those in tier 0 he can only take the item for a time of two posts such the amount of time that the item is taken grows longer the weaker the subject is. In addition to this the power can be extended to those things that the person holds dear to them if they willingly allow Reigen to make a deal for them, this makes it so the item they lost is traded back for the item they had made a deal with though permission grants Reigen reign over the item for only three posts of a thread before being 'gifted' back to them by the demon.
Greed Unleashed: The cloak that Reigen wears has its own sentience, it can move without the use of its wearer and can also absorb objects surrounding it, if no resistance is given the cloak near enough eats the item and grows larger however it has a limit to what it can consume and when it is hit or fired upon it can protect its user Reigen at the cost of its size and overall protective qualities depending on the blows given and how strong they are.
It however can only be used while Reigen has power to do so if he is weakened or incapacitated then the cloak is simply that a cloak and nothing more. The piece of clothing however has loyalty to its wearer and will come to his aid when he is separated from it even retreating from him when he does not have the speed to do so as such it acts as the shield of Reigen's arsenal not having much defensive properties himself. Devil 1 AbilitiesQueen's Blessing:
Power granted to Reigen while under the position of the Devil 1 in the Devil 9. This power granted by Inami Asthavon granted Reigen naturally greater energy as well as putting him in the position as the Devil of Logic within the group. This power while acting as a boost also grant the Demon the power to choose and grant the positions of the Devils within the group from 5-8 in terms of position. Upon finding someone of appropriate worth that agrees to the terms of joining they will be granted the number that would be assigned to them on their body and would be given the same powers and responsibilities as well as advantages that the rest of the Devil's 9 would be granted with their assigning into the group. This power also grant Reigen the power of the Devil of Logic, giving his chain of greed as well as himself a new ability 'Logic Break' This power however must be activated by him while he had released his shifter form and has released the power given to him by the position.Logic Break:
Only available while in his released state, this power is granted through the power of Inami Asthavon giving the position of the Devil of Logic to Reigen under the Devil 9. While activating this ability Reigen himself must be in deep concentration, to protect himself he gathers the Chain of Greed into a sphere of whipping death. Along with himself the chain also gains power from the new energies found within its master, it takes a greater appearance and seems to appear from a much greater sphere seal that releases itself from within or around Reigen... The reasoning for the change seems only know to the Demon himself. When this power is activated within Reigen's sphere of influence [500 Meters] the logic and natural laws of the world are under the control of the Demon in their entirety. This can go as far as manipulating the gravity in the area to make it weightless to cause all the sphere to become a vacuum bereft of oxygen as this power grants him the control over what goes on within the space he can only access it for a total of 5 posts ongoing before he is locked out of it.
This power extends to the Chain of Greed's already unnatural control of such things, with this boost the Chain is capable of taking at least 5 things at once before reaching a limit of items of possible targets. Moreover the logic that Reigen can enforce seems to act upon itself in the form of games for Reigen's own entertainment, what act the person must do in order to follow the logic of their current situation and therefore survive would be up to Reigen to decide as he combats them. This power comes at a cost however, the energy can weaken Reigen to even cause unconsciousness in the Demon, moreover the continued use of the power can damage his very body as the strain of forming the new rules of the universe within a small area can cause catastrophic damage on his soul and body which would require rest and healing to allow Reigen to work actively. Without it and even if the healing was given to him immediately after the combat where he used it Reigen would be considerably weakened to only half or less of his usual energy.
» Sustaining Hunger: This is considered to be a passive ability of Reigen's core of greed. Sustaining Hunger allows Reigen to otherwise forgo the need to feast on physical meals, water or other means of subsistence. Instead, The Essence of Avarice provides his lifeline and has granted him a form of Semi-immortality. As long as its energy is pumping within the veins of Reigen, it can allow him to live for an eternity on his own source of greed. This doesn't mean that he cannot be killed in combat, but it is possible for him to have an infinite lifespan if he is not murdered.
» Greed's Call: Another passive ability, this one allows Reigen to otherwise pick up on the frequency of greed, gluttony and hunger within a range of one to two miles when pushed. It works similar to an Arrancar's Pesquisa, but works more so on perceiving instances of greed within a persons actions or aura. Hence, this Core of Greed is able to send out a pulse into the area and then a returning pulse is given back to Reigen to otherwise alert him of such occurrences in the environment around him.
» Essence Of Avarice: The Kora A'ina Of Yina, by this point, has uncovered a plethora of understanding when it comes to the spiritual frequency of Reigen's body. Through this comprehension, The Kora A'ina was able to otherwise lock on to his affinity for greed and take it a step further. By merging itself with The Immoral Dealer, the sphere has unlocked an ability that allows him to otherwise feast off his greed and others.
The way this ability works is similar to how a human would absorb vitamin D in the sun. Whenever there are large volumes of greed assembling within a space of one thousand meters, The Essence Of Avarice will pick up on it and attempt to absorb the quantities of greed into its core. This can be determined by honing in on the emotions of desire or the actions of gluttony. One such example would be if there was an instance where one was taking more power than they needed. This case would prove true when dealing with augmentation abilities, as The Essence Of Avarice would pickup on that desire for more power and mimic it to feed Reigen.
This then follows the active stage of the consumption process. After soaking up the aura of greed over a duration of one post, for a period of five post, Reigen can see improvements of his physical and spiritual abilities improve two fold. This can spread down to his racial attributes, unique powers and things such as speed, durability or physical strength.
Furthermore, bits of excess energy is also stored passively into his body to activate other attributes and abilities associated with The Kora A'ina.
» Armor Of Greed: This is a defensive ability that is fueled by The Essence of Avarice and feeds off its greed energy. Essentially, The Armor Of Greed is an energized construct that is forged from Reigen's Inner Core of Greed. It can be summoned in any length, width or area expanding upwards of three hundred meters on average and five hundred when pushing it. It will often have some sort of green glow to it as it is called for by Reigen. Then when it is summoned, its unique ability will allow Reigen to shield himself from attacks that are fueled by excess desire.
For instance, if Reigen were to encounter a massive energy attack that was empowered by a user with profound ambition, there would be a high chance that he could otherwise negate a good deal of damage from the opponent. This is because The Essence of Avarice can pick up on the wavelength of greed within a persons energy frequency and create its own metaphysical wall to block that greed from harming Reigen.
Now, this isn't an absolute-type of ability. The reason for this is that there may be cases where Reigen will be able to block a great deal of an attack, but bits and pieces of its effect will seep pass the barrier anyway. Such as taking a powerful Grand Ray blast and nulling around sixty to seventy percent of its damage. Which, in turn, would result in minor to noticeable injuries to Reigen.
Furthermore, physical attacks have a much better chance of penetrating this shield than energy, magic or other types of supernatural attacks. The reason for this is because it is more natural in origin and much harder for The Essence of Avarice to really fixate on. So, hand-to-hand negations will be minimally effected by this; if not outright improbable for more advanced physical-based combatants.
Other limitations include the fact that it can only be used two times per post. This is because it will always take a fair amount of energy from Reigen and it isn't an ability meant to be spammed. Rather, its to get out of critical situations or at least attempt to alleviate them.
» Vest Of Greed: This is an offshoot technique of the abilities associated with Armor of Greed. By directing the ember aura of his greed energy, Reigen can engulf himself with a burning emerald fire and use it as a full-body shield to protect himself from various energized, magical and other supernatural attacks. This can be activated for a period of three to five post, but it will create a three post cooldown. This is often used if he wants to maintain an active usage of Armor of Greed.
» Snatching Desire: Snatching Desire is classified as an offensive means of attack from The Essence of Avarice. This attribute awakened when The Kora A'ina detected the wavelengths attached to Reigen's Chain of Greed power. When becoming aware of this possessive element, it created a version of that ability which took The Chain of Greed's effect into a more incorporeal form. Therefore, this Snatching Desire It is associated with the concept of theft and its connection to greed. For one who steals may be one whose greed desires more for themselves and less for others.
So, this ability allows Reigen to mark upwards of a three hundred to six hundred meter radius with his energy. Once the area has been marked, it is then subjected to Reigen's Greed Aura and his excess desire can take various concepts and elements from the area. When this occurs, there is a two post duration where Snatching Desire is able to mimic these construct for The Demon to use as he sees fit.
For instance, Reigen can use Snatching Desire to mark the earth beneath him and use it against his opponent. He'd be able to adjust the terrain around them, generate earthquakes, form massive rocky shields from the ground and other varying elements associated with earth-based techniques. Or, in another example, he can influence his desire to the heavens themselves and produce hurricane force winds, lightning strikes from the sky and adjustments to the temperatures in the area.
So, due to this being quite the heavy ability, Reigen would only be able to use two applications of this when Snatching Desire is in effect. So, for that two post duration, he could use these mimicking elements of Earth and Wind, but that is it. Additionally, there is often a one post cool down period before he can use it again. Ergo, this is a power to use when he wants to strike with iron and confuse the opponent by utilizing unforeseen techniques from the land around him.
____________________________________________________» Adjustable State Appearance:
» Adjustable State Benefits:
Shadow Shifting: While in this form Reigen can phase into any shadow and make himself nearly untouchable, however this does have limits for one he can only stay in the shadow for a limit of three posts. Moreover he cannot attack or defend his position while in the state of hiding, this makes the move more of a last resort than anything in order to hide from those that Reigen would rather not fight or that he has no chance of winning against. This move can only be used once in a thread and cannot be used in an area where shadows are not prominent.
Great Greed: While in this form Reigen can begin to manipulate the world around him by being in contact with it, as with the power of Chain of Greed he cannot manipulate those he is fighting against however he can manipulate the area that surrounds him, he can 'take' the stability of a building he is or take the screws out of the supporting beams of a home or building he can even take the solidity of the ground that he is standing on.
This power only works in a range of what he is touching and at a range of 4 meters in width and 10 in height, as before he can only take three items as well as only taking one from a certain object, when he gives back the item the area around him lost the damage that might have been dealt to the area is repaired and made good as new. This power has a limit of three post per item once an item has been taken as before it cannot be taken again in the same thread.
Two for one: Upon activating this form Reigen is granted an extra ethereal Chain of Greed, this one acts in the same manner as the original and both can be used at once however the amount of time for the use of the second change is limited, this means that Reigen can only use it for three post before a cool-down of another three post is needed before he can be granted the power again.
