» Name: Neoveta
» Age: Three Years Old
» Gender: Female
» Titles: The Asthavon Secret Weapon
Overseer Of London
Devil 4 Of The Chaya Nation
Banshee Four Of Shadow Fall
» Residence: As of now? Her primary residence should be The Queen's Palace in London. She has her own separate realm beneath the palace where she resides. Locked behind a pair of giant red doors, it is said that behind them grants you access into a fraction of hell. Or, to be more precise, the 666th Layer of Hell. The room has black and white tiled floors in it, while a red miasma heavily darkens the area. In the center of it is a circular shaped bed that overlooks the black colored ceiling that has many chains hanging off them. The bed itself is mostly used as a regenerative space by Neoveta in case she wants to recover her energy, repair her mind or otherwise let her body heal after combat.
Although, in general, most demon's will find themselves rather at home within this room. Due to Neoveta's energy particles heavily coating this room, her abilities can be transferred through the air with relative ease. Therefore, her attributes have allowed for this room to become a massive enhancement and healing tank for those who decide to venture in within its confines. Thus, there really isn't much need for anything else in this space. Neovetatends to bathe, meditate and slumber within this rancid portion of Hell that was summoned to the surface world. With her close contact to the demonic deities of the Demon Race, it is no wonder that such a thing existence. It is also worth mentioning that she can easily mold the room to her liking.
» Frequent Locations: Neoveta is often contained within London as a means of defense when The Demon Queen is not present. However, when she and her entourage are, then Neoveta is noted to travel among the many Asthavon bases scattered throughout Earth and Demon World. She doesn't seem to have much interest in any of the other realms unless she is called to take action in them. The only other location that interest her is Hell and that is simply due to the fact that portions of her body are connected to Khala Asthavon whose master resides in the deepest pit of Hell.
» Occupation/Affiliation: For the time being, she is associated with the Asthvaon Family and Shadow Fall. First and foremost she does serve the Asthavon Family in protecting their domain within the city of London and, to a greater extent, Europe now. What comes second to that is her affiliation with Shadow Fall. As an extra asset to the organization, she was assigned by Mana to be the 4th Banshee of Shadow Fall to add to their collective strength. Although it was forced upon her, Neoveta doesn't seem to pay it much of mind and goes with the flow.
More noteable, Neoveta has been rumored to be the "Overseer of London" by some of its citizens. This is due to the fact that she is often seen disposing of threats, targets and obstacles that may hamper the sanctity of The Queen's rule over that terrority. So she can more or less be seen as a first line of defense if there was any for that metropolis. Henceforth, by proxy, she is also considered to be apart of The United Kingdom's own military defenses due to how far her network and abilities can reach.
Additionally, although she herself isn't apart of the Chaya Nation, she did lend Inami a favor. Being that Neoveta holds six replicas of her body, she allotted Inami the use of one of them for her kingdom. Otherwise known as Neoveta R1, this duplicate was made apart of her Devil 9 Force as the 4th Devil tasked with defending her kingdom. So through proxy, Neoveta can be allied with this faction as well due to her power being at work there. So that can also infer, that through Neoveta R5, she is associated with Hell to an extent as she is seen as an assistant to all Layers within Hell.
» True Appearance Written: Neoveta's figure is a rather petite and small one. She stands at roughly four foot seven and weighs around eighty pounds. Adding to her delicate features, her body has a rich milky glow to it in regards to her skin complexion. It often tends to mend well alongside her black and red attire. Therefore, she doesn't have much of an intimidating factor with her childish body. However, it does tend to stand out to an extent in more dull crowds.
Her hair seems to extend down to her feet and to the ground; each branded into twin tails with black hairbands keeping them in place. There also appears to be a single and large lock of hair sticking out from the top of Neoveta's head. What's more, her eyes seem to have a crimson glow to them. At times they can have red irises, while in more focused or darkened moods her pupils and irises alike can dull into a damped shade of scarlet. Additionally, there seems to be a similarly colored gem in the shape of a kite on her forehead. In conjunction with that, there are also two black and red headbangs on the front left and right side of her hair. Each of which seem to be connected to what one might mistake for headphones attached to both of her ears.
Although, during some periods, she can also be noted as having three pairs of wings that have a crimson-blood-esque aura to them. These extend from her shoulders, middle back and each of her sides. Since these are produced from her energy, she can willingly retract them at her will. When those wings are out, however, they do give her a more demonic-like appearance when combined with the fact that Neoveta seems to float almost everywhere.
Which leads into the gothic attire that is common in the Asthavon Family. When it comes to Neoveta's wardrobe? It can be described as the type of fashion style known as "gothic lolita". She wears a tight body suit that is black in color and has glowing lined markings on them that are crimson in their hue. On top of it is a frilly dress that shares the same color scheme as her bodysuit. Though, the frills on it are white in their color and very soft to the touch. A rather stark contrast to how thick and hard the rest of her attire is when placing one's hand on it. The same type of gentleness can also be felt on the red bow attached to her collar. And lastly, the final thing to take note is that she often wears a pair of high-heeled black boots to neatly finish the gothic-like image she has.

Well, Neoveta is a rather quiet individual. Due to the fact that she was raised to be a weapon and a tool, there was not much time to craft her personality to an extensive level. Therefore, she prefers to observe and watch people before having much input of her own. If she is approached by someone wanting to see her response, she'll often respond with some form of telepathy to prevent from having to speak much herself. This is because that is the most preferable way to communicate with her because it is more straight-forward and to the point compared to verbal communication. A trait that is even present within Deveta himself and one that she may have subconsciously even latched on to an extent.
Moreover, even when she is forced to interact with others, Neoveta attempts to keep her opinions, words and reactions mild-mattered. Her body language is often very neutral and most members in the Asthavon Clan often refer to her as one of the most reserved of their kind. Being that most kin of the Asthavon Family are often very outspoken, chaotic in nature and very -- sociable -- Neoveta is the odd one out with these traits. So with that clash of interest, Neoveta has learned to keep herself at a distant from others and prefers to be withdrawn more than not. That is, if she isn't attempting to carry out a mission, defend the Asthavon Manor's and so forth.
Regardless of if she is on the clock or not, however, Neoveta seems to complain about a lack of energy. There are many mentions of her documented in Shadow Fall's records that Neoveta often expressed feelings of fatigue, being worn down, tired and overall exhausted. She claims this is because the hunger of Demon World that she feels from her connection to the Demon Gods are never satisfied. Therefore, as a result of this imbalance, her body is never fulfilled as well. One such illustration of this is that Neoveta has quite the hard time digesting food, and is thus usually hungry. You can often hear her stomach grumbling for food and she is often pleased whenever something does manage to fill her appetite.
Another example of these unfulfilled desires affecting her personality is that The Demoness often has trouble putting herself into slumber. With the way her body was constructed Neoveta has complications attempting to stay asleep for stable periods of time. She either sleeps at quick spurts at a time, or overly long durations of time that can extend into days even. This has led to her often feeling drowsy, frequently yawning and giving off a sleepy aura whenever her attention isn't focused. Many of her opponents have even felt enraged or downright insulted by her dull demeanor, but her external expression isn't an accurate sense of her mindstate in the slightest. While she may come off as uninterested or outright bored, Neoveta will take most of her task with the utmost of concern and attention internally.
So you can often consider her a hard-worker of sorts. Although she isn't the most enthusiastic person to ever come across, most things that Neoveta sets her mind to gets done. Even if it takes a sluggish pace, an unconventional way or through any means necessary; her goals, jobs and missions will always get done to the best of her ability. That leaves a definite sense of work ethic and a loose sense of loyalty to whatever cause she aligns herself with despite her first impressions. In her point of view there simply isn't much else to do in the world if chose not to put your mind towards a worthwhile task. If the body and mind stay idle for too long -- then they will simply decay and turn to sunder. Thus, it keeps her mind from falling prey to the more unsteady thoughts that come from within her psyche.
This is because perception within Neoveta's point of view also seems to be rather skewed. She has expressed that time moves at a delayed rate of time for her due to the way she was born. Her entire life was accelerated in terms of the growth of her body. Countless millennium's of knowledge was forced into her mind to expand her intelligence, personality and emotion. While her mother accelerated the growth of her body so she could skip the progressive transformation of her body artificially.
Therefore, through these events, she seems to experience time at an de-accelerated pace. Hours can feel like months passing by in the viewpoint of Neoveta, for instance. An entire year for Neoveta can feel as if two thousand years had passed. She theorizes this is to better accommodate her to this profound maturing of her body. In combat, she does feel grateful to have it. From her innermost thoughts, however, Neoveta hopes this side effect goes away as she becomes older as it feels off-putting more than anything else.
So it seems that taking in the body parts of a Godling does not come without a price. Although Neoveta is not the type to express herself in a violent manner, there is a voice within her head that wants her to indulge in the maddening elements that the Asthavon Family, and Mana herself, is more known for. She has recalled this unnerving entity making contact with her through dreams, idle moments and when her body or mind is gravely weakened. It wants to consume the being she has turned into and morph her into a "proper" demon. However, she rebukes that rhetoric that it mutters to her. Neoveta feels that she is fine the way she is and that she doesn't want to full prey to that more sinister side of her personality.
Therefore, out of spite, this suppressed persona attempts to poke holes in the vessel that Neoveta calls her body. This "other side" attempts to inflict random pains throughout her. Everything from the sensation of being burned, to the sudden shock of being drowned in a lake of acid, the feeling of bones shattering and even the obliteration of her body. Hallucinations tend to take over when it gets unruly; things such as the destruction of the Asthavon Family, the destruction of Europe and even the death of Neoveta herself can play out and unnerve her. In spite of this, she still tries to fight against it and keep it at a distance and break even through allowing some traits to come out in passive matters.
One trait that she does hold similar to the more chaotic lineage of the Asthavon's is that she does have a thirst for blood. However, unlike more unhinged members, Neoveta does not try and seek out random or innocent civilians. Instead? She often prefers to consume and save the bodies of those whom she kills on her missions. Anyone who is considered an enemy of the Asthavon, a target of Shadow Fall, a threat to Britain or simply someone whom she is tasked with killing -- is her dinner. Therefore, within the cellar of the Asthavon Palace in London is a vast assortment of bones, flesh, organs, energy samples and other contents from her battles that she has collected so that she may feast upon later. In this way, the Demoness seems to have a better grip on her appetite compared to her peers and perhaps a vague sense of morality.
In her point of view it is all but fine to do what you may to the defeated opponent who dares endangers your land, people or well being. Whereas targeting the weak, defenseless, innocent or those who have nothing to do with your life -- is wrong. However, she tends to keep these sentiments to herself and prefers to let those in her race and family do as they may. As Neoveta is also the type to not stick her nose in affairs or business that isn't her concern. The Demoness is only capable of controlling what actions she takes, the life values she instills within herself and how she wishes to enforce her spirit on to the world. Everything else is but an idealistic dream to otherwise try and materialize.
Digressing from that, Neoveta also seems to take a bit of enjoyment in causing destruction as well -- provided it falls in alignment with her enemies. The sights of fire, buildings crumbling to nothing, the scent of blood in the air and the sparks of violence igniting the air do break much ease to that inner voice within her head. So she is begrudgingly fond of the battlefield. It is one of the few places where that monster within herself is able to become sedated and a sense of flowing relief oozes over her body to envelop her within a warmth that is indescribable to most other beings. So while she may do what is required of her to finish a task in these hellish zones of war, she does see the beauty in it and tends to take a step back to appreciate those wondrous sights.
Because, overall, life is a gift to the woman. There isn't a passing second where she does not feel grateful for being alive despite her circumstances. It does not matter if she is in anguish, suffering the strains of boredom or having the time of her life; experiencing all of these new feelings, emotions and sights are what keep her alive. It is why she hopes to prolong her life for as long as possible before having to meet the reaper as living is far too exciting for her; whereas death is cold, static and dull. So while Death's Energy may flow through her, she does not claim it for her own. Which makes it quite the perplexing turn of traits for one associated with the most unstable of demon's to Demon World. But -- that is simply Neoveta.
Neoveta was created shortly after Mana had established her takeover over London and Europe in February of 2411. The blueprints for her design were all but being made within the confines of Mana's mind at that time. The reason for her creation was that New London was going to require a watchful eye over it when The Queen herself was not there. Henceforth, Project Neoveta began in order to fill that void and increase the security of not only London, but other Shadow Fall and Asthavon related compounds. The initial plan was for Mana to produce a shell that would contain a portion of Khala Asthavon's essence within it. By combining The Demon Queen's extract and The Heart of The Demon God's influence into this being, Neoveta would be forged into a tool whom could accomplish great things for her kingdom. So after the conception took place, Mana took care of her exceptional growth herself. For it was under her guidance that she accelerated the growth of Neoveta to avoid her having to go through infancy, childhood and skip straight into a mature frame of mind through her manipulation and knowledge of the demonic body with a bit of magic at her side.
The first step towards creating Neoveta had been, of course, Mana utilizing her unnatural level of body manipulation to give birth to Neoveta. The next step was inserting fractions of Khala's influence into her by infusing The Godlings energy and actual organic parts into her body to provide a steady foundation. In this way, she'd be able to make use of attributes from both The Demon Queen and Demon Goddess. After that point, it was all but a matter of going back to the base of her body. Mana started inputting large amounts of information into Neoveta's mind to craft her senses, personality and intelligence. So skills such as speech, logic, motor functions as well as the persona and emotions of Neoveta were crafted after that point.
However, the information did not stop there. Latching on to memories of The Demon Queen and Heart of Deveta allowed for Neoveta to further cultivate her mind. The insertion of their experiences would allow for The Queen's Tool to have an understanding of her powers, the family that she was born into, the people she served and a wide and comprehensive knowledge of the world as a whole from their observations of the universe. Thus, although she was only a few minutes old, she had already instilled within her the prowess, experience and knowledge of a centuries old hardened demon.
Once the birthing process was complete, The Demi Engine awakened within her under Khala Asthavon's activation. This unique ability of the demon's is what would propel her accelerated growth over the next three years. The blessings of their deity were upon her thanks to permission from The Demon God. As a result, Deveta treated Khala like a puppet due to her inactive state at this point. So it would prove to be a surprise for The Heart of The Demon God later. As under that process, it can be assumed that Deveta is her father. Which would, in turn, make Khala and Mana each of her mothers.
Despite that, through this perplexing birth into the world, Neoveta was complete. Pleased with the results, Mana Asthavon was delighted at her new daughters creation. The Demi Engine that had been installed would be the key to advancing the security and defenses of both the Asthavon Family and Shadow Fall alike. After all, by the time this project could become completed, she'd be groomed to serve them. Before that point, though, Mana felt that she'd pay homage to her semi-deictic body. Under this logic, the reason why Neoveta was given that name is because it did indeed reference Deveta to an extent. As with her having a portion of his influence inside of Neoveta, it seemed only fitting she'd had the "veta" at the end of her name.
So with a name given, a purpose driven into her and a goal in mind; Neoveta awakened to her body and stepped forth into her life by the guidance of her mother's loving arms. Fine Tuning Development
Since Shadow Fall and Demon dominance in general strengthened over London during this time, Mana was able to oversee her training to fine-tune her powers. One of the first things that she noticed after bringing her back to the Royal Palace was that she was -- unstable. Very unstable. It seemed not all had gone as according to plan as Mana once thought. This is because cramming centuries, nay, hundreds of thousands of years knowledge into the girls head broke her.
It had been a lot for a fresh born creature to ingest. From Deveta and Khala alone, there was millions of years of information to assimilate. There were too many experiences, feelings, emotions and thoughts to sort through. It drove her mad! So after not having time to process what life was, Neoveta seemed to go on rampaging attacks against anything that moved -- including Mana herself.
For The Demon Queen, however, she had means of controlling her through her. With Mana's influence coursing through Neoveta's veins, her mother would be able to displine her as she saw fit. So The Wicked Empress was able to manipulate her body to stun it. These "stunning" moments were filled with unimaginable pain. Pain that was bad enough to make her fall to her knees; writhing on the ground in agony. It was in those moments that Mana would then educate her about why that wasn't such a brilliant idea through "tough love".
She'd cut off limbs, slash open her torso and pierce through Neoveta's body with many sharp appendages from her own body until she calmed down. Then, once these rage fits subdued, she gave her the tender love a mother would give her daughter. Mana conveyed mentally the lessons she was trying to instill in her. These sentiments were of the kind that life was painful, but if you learned to let the madness become one with you, you'd be in control. After all, it was all nothing but a game, and she had to fight to win!
So in that way, not all of these disputes would seem as if Mana was merely abusing her for the sport of it. Because The Queen herself was very much inclined to do with her opponents. After all, Neoveta DID share some of her memories. She could peer instances of the life Mana led up until now -- and it wasn't a good one. Nevertheless, through these early life lessons Neoveta learned that change can sometimes be -- painful. Beating after beating, this message sunk in and her insanity was held back by force.
From these chaotic bouts, Neoveta and Mana would both learned her pain. For one thing, the two of them discovered that some of Khala's own instabilities had damaged Neoveta's psyche to an extent. Being that The Heart of The Demon God was in her slumber state still, portions of her unstable mind were infused into Neoveta and caused havoc on her body. It gave her hallucinations, the sensation of numerous voices screaming in her head and a very violent temper that was only satisfied by killing, battle and war.
However, The Queen seemed to be able to suppress even that with her power and grip over Neoveta. This was performed by sealing that side of Neoveta's persona into the deepest recesses of her mind until the submissive, docile and silent girl that she is today had gained a majority of control over her body. So through Mana's mental prowess, the girls had managed to form a stop-gap measure against these urges. In spite of that, the other thing that Neoveta learned through this was a fine tuning of her powers.
During most of her psychotic brawls that took place over the first few months of her life, The Demoness was constantly engaged in non-stop battle almost everyday. This allowed her to become more familiarized with her powers and thus gain a greater mastery over them. At birth, she only had a theoretical and pre-installed base to work with. It is on the field and against fierce opponents like Nami Asthavon, Mana Asthavon and their enemies did she gain a practical and hands on knowledge of her abilities. As Neoveta came to comprehend that understanding and retaining information is one thing -- putting it to use in an objective setting is another matter altogether.
Throughout the course of 2411 she was involved within at least four hundred battles as Shadow Fall further dealt with the rebels within Demon World and Europe alike. In these clashes many of her abilities started to awaken after each battle. For instance, she learned that it was rather hard to actually damage her body against those who weren't her creators like Mana or Khala. Most of the opponents she faced off against had a difficulty breaking through her Demi Force. This was because Neoveta's durability through this divine blessing was quite the tough thing to crack against run of the mill targets.
Although, she found that those higher on the power scale had a more probable means of shattering her defenses. There was an instance where came across a freak Arrancar who had escaped from Shadow Fall's Research program. The Knights apart of this sector were attempting to create a squadron of synthetic Arrancar's who had the strength of faction leaders when it came to their physical and racial traits. Unfortunately, they soon found out that this was not probable.
One of the experiments escaped and it was up to Neoveta to deal with it. After a lengthy battle where she was mostly thrown around like a rag doll, she found that their insane strength was able to shatter some of her layers, but she was able to awaken an aspect of her Demi Force to go on the offensive. By distorting the space around them, she erased the particles of air around them to choke the creature until they were terminated. It was a worthwhile lesson to walk away and it was an incident that caused her to become a fascinating subject in the eyes of Rose Mischevang.
Henceforth, as her power grew, the interest in her abilities became further heightened by those under Rose's command. Therefore, she was then utilized by Shadow Fall's Research department to begin development of their own "network". Under the watchful eye of Mana Asthavon, they conducted experiments to synchronization her "Divine Particles" with the world around her. They came to this discovery after analyzing her brief memories and coming across a function of her powers that allowed her to attach her energy particles to the space around her.
From there, with The Primera Espada's guidance, she was then able to construct and piece together the Demi Network for Shadow Fall. This allowed for Neoveta's powers to flourish, expand and heighten the force behind this organization. It was under this rapid growth that Rose Mischevang also discovered the Nerve Burst drive after performing a few stress trials on the battlefield with Neoveta. She found that when she was pitted against Captain-Class targets, Neoveta's Demi Engine reacted by reaching an augmented state to further bolster her capacity. After making a few adjustments to her body, The Primera was able to allow her to shift into this state at will. This further made Neoveta a valuable tool and asset to the Asthavon Family and Shadow fall as a whole.
It is under these circumstances that she was then promoted to the rank of being the Fourth Banshee by Mana once she was of a befitting level of power to fill that role. She was of stable mind at this point, made toughened by her rigid battles and had a firm mastery over her powers through these experiments. Neoveta was adjusting to the world and this was the next chapter of her life. Banshee Arc
Once Neoveta was accepted into the ranks of The Banshee, it was there that she met up with fellow family members. The one to give her the introduction into the group was Katana Asthavon; otherwise known as her Aunt. The first and remaining impression that Neoveta was left with was that she was a boss of sorts. This is because she lead her group with a strong fist, sadistic fighting style and a stood at a very high stature; both metaphorically speaking and literally. Therefore, Neoveta tried to remain out of her aunt's way if it could be helped, but watched her from afar with amazement. Following that initial gathering, she also met up with her fellow sister: Liu Asthavon. It seemed that she had taken the helm as the Second Banshee and Liu took a liking to Neoveta. Both of them seemed to have a common connection towards being peculiar members of the Asthavon family and forged an elder, sister bond shortly after.
Under Liu and Katana's care, both Neoveta's mind and body were further cultivated and hardened. These came as they took on the task of dealing with The Queen's fearsome enemies together. Liu Asthavon continued to teach compassion, restraint, the arts and the concept of "freedom" to Neoveta. These elements are what gave Neoveta thoughts. Thoughts that if Mana were to impose her will upon her in a forceful manner -- she'd more than likely rebel until a satisfying action was given. The meetings and get togethers between the two are what blossomed more independent and critical thoughts in Neoveta. As she started to form her personality traits at an accelerated degree and shifted away from her drone-like state.
While at the same time, Katana seemed to make Neoveta emulate a more disciplined tone of mind by observing her patterns. She seemed focused, dedicated and overall strong. So while Neoveta may have seemed like the dreary-eyed type, she was sharpening her own mentality to become more precise, analytical and fixated in order to increase the potency of not only her powers, but her character. Although, these changes in her values did allow for Rose Mischevang to make further fine-tunings to her body. This came in the form of assisting with the modifications and adjustments that allowed for Mana's body manipulation traits to come to the forefront and the production of her Replica Shells made possible.
It was also around this time that she uncovered more of her healing functions. Which, from this experience, allowed for her to learn a greater extent of her natural demonic power. One day, Shadow Fall assigned a top ranking mission to Neoveta and Liu Asthavon. A mission where they suppose to terminate an Angel attempting to assassinate the Queen. Understanding that their mother was in trouble, Neoveta and Liu went to work trying to fend the creature off. Heavy blows were exchanged between the two, as Liu and Neoveta both pushed themselves against this powerful foe. At one point, Liu found herself overwhelmed and got stunned by his holy power.
This caused her to fall back to the earth with a powerful thud. In that moment, Neoveta's urge to protect her accelerated the growth of her power and a clarity moment was had. As The Second Banshee was laying on the ground, seemly almost dead, visions of Deveta emerged within Neoveta's head. This vision showed her the attachment that was had between the two. By praying to him for Liu's well being, she was able to revert and heal some of her injuries. At least enough to where she was given leeway to dispose of the rogue angel. Following that mission, Neoveta made it a point to get a better mastery of this power and unlocked more of its secrets under her solo-training.
Once she had a better grasp on these spells, it made her feel rather -- pleased. Yes, she was pleased to assist her fellow co worker, Edward Elric, The Third Banshee of Shadow Fall, in his missions. If he ever needed patching up, healing or recovery of his energy; she was always there in the background to back him up. Albeit, from her observations, he felt strong on his own to Neoveta. And being that she was not often accommodated with the company of males, she found him to be a rather ideal figure of what a man should be. Strong, independent and hard-willed. Thus, whenever she was paired with him, Neoveta often felt safe and secured because of this.
After a bit more time had passed, Neoveta felt she had adjusted to life within Shadow Fall quite well. She was taking in new sights from her missions, although they seemed worrying to an extent. When there was destruction, death and strife within the wars Shadow Fall waged -- Neoveta felt relaxed. In the ambers of destruction, the tension within her mind and body seemed ease. As if the scent of blood, the ruins of civilization and the growth of her powers through battle -- made things -- right.
She couldn't dwell on that thought, however. Neoveta was gaining new experiances by the sextaple numbers through her clones. The battles they engaged, people they met and lands they saw were all being conveyed within Neoveta. The Demoness lived through her replicas and it felt all but right to her. Living six lives at once is what allowed her not to reflect so much on her more morbid thoughts. The horrid introspection that the sadistic voice inside Neoveta always whispered.
As her waking mind, the one in her original body, felt like she had a worthwhile team behind her back. There was a sense of unity and belonging working alongside The Banshee force. The main person that came to mind was Edward Elric, though. This was because it was good to get along with someone outside of her own family. Although, that doesn't belittle the gifts that Katana and Liu gave her. It just made transitioning into her shell -- rather nice.
Neoveta was ultimately gentler from it and was becoming more within control of herself as the months went on. This was but the flow of her fast moving life. Days were like years, weeks like decades and months were centuries. Yet, even through all this, there was a lingering sense of anxiety. Fear about the voices that still plagued her mind. But, she'd do her best to suppress them. They weren't -- going to break her.Post Madness City Arc
Once the aftermath of Madness City had settled, Neoveta finally got a chance to meet her mother without having to interact with her subconscious. While Khala did indeed have a part in creating Neoveta, this was done out of Deveta's manipulation of her body upon Mana's request. In other words, it was a brief respite during her slumber within her ideal dream world where she was put to sleep. So to have direct contact with Khala was a rather profound moment for Neoveta to experience. Thus, when The Heart of The Demon God arrived back in the material plane, Neoveta was one of the first few Asthavon to greet her. Outside of Mana herself, Neoveta was earnest to meet her mother on the battlegrounds of Madness City. However -- she appeared to be rather distraught and distant from the Asthavon family. Having just suffered the death of Truth, her brother in "Godhood" and potential soul rate, Khala's mind was unsteady.
It reached a point where even Neoveta herself seemed to be becoming poisoned by this unbalance in her mentality. The influence and pull that Khala's aura had on her was an intense one and smothered her. If it weren't for her healing capacity, she may have very well reverted back to her own unhinged mind. It was as if her reason for living was under attack and falling apart at the seams. This would have undid the two years of progress she herself endured to reach her present point of maturity. So while her ideals, goals and objectives of drowning the world in death, creating a nirvana and absolving all into one complete being were scary -- she did not believe that her parent could do such a thing.
Thus, like a frightened child, Neoveta was concerned for her mothers wellbeing. Therefore, she'd do what she could to keep her happy, content and suppressed to prevent a boiling point from occurring. It was through Neoveta's Omi Healing that she at least managed to keep Khala contained within The Garden of Gods. At least, before her persona broke at her return from it a year later at some point during the Australia Arc. With all the resources that was pooled into that effort, Neoveta worked day in and out to protect her mothers wellbeing.
Even as she risked her lives on the frontlines of war, Khala was always on the back of her mind. It was at this point that she started to possibly even understood Mana's own feelings towards her. Thinking back to the first few months of her life, the traumatic growth she underwent seemed similar to this situation. This led to her feeling the sensation empathy for the first time and made her realize that she needed to use her powers to continue to protect her demonic family.
As a result, she spent further time throwing herself in to the helms of combat in roles of offensive, defensive and supportive matters to keep enhancing her abilities and skills through rapid growth. She went over the knowledge stored within her encyclopaedic mind tens of thousands of times until she had memorized downright. In fact, Neoveta even made her own enhancements to the Demi Network at this point to better improve the defenses of Shadow Fall as a whole. Through this strife with Khala, she felt an incredible urge to provide a pellar of strength for other Asthavon's to lean on as they were an unsteady bunch; but they were the only bond she truly had in this world and she didn't want it to turn to ash.
The only place where things could go from this point were up with her new determination. Even if her own psyche wanted to fall apart in the awakening of Khala -- Neoveta wouldn't allow it. There was too much riding on her to do so. All of the trust that was built into her, the faith vested into this child's vessel and the lives of those attached to her were too precious to give up on. So as dead as she felt, she had to keep moving on with her life. No matter what the cost.Post Australia Arc
Starting around the time the conflict of Australia had ceased, Neoveta's mind was beginning to turn towards despair. The reason for this is because Khala's active presence in the world was beginning to bog down her once jovial world. There were many lingering doubts being whispered to her from that dreaded alter ego of hers. One such thing that was whispered over and over was the fact that she wasn't loved. This voice kept repeating it numerous time to drive home the message that she was nothing but a weapon, a tool and something to be discarded when she was of no value to her family, friends and allies. Her entire purpose for being on this planet was nothing more than a means to fill someone else's end. Neither of her mothers cared for her, most of her kin could view her as the weakest link with her timid behavior and her comrades only saw worth in her purely because of her supportive powers.
It was a vicious and horrible cycle of negative sensations that brought Neoveta down. It broke her heart and mind, but she still wanted to carry on the flaming spirit of Katana within her and proceed forward with her daily task. The daily performance in her mission on the battlefield, performance on the Demi Network and mental health started to dip from her progress reports during this time period. More and more, her desire to live was being attacked by the negative influence within Khala and her own desire to assimilate all into death.
So her sense of self, place in this world and those around her were put into serious question at this point. Neoveta became withdrawn towards the Asthavon household as she let her R6 Replica deal with most of the task for the Banshee Force in her stead. The thought of killing herself or becoming a total monster buzzed through her head at this point. Would it not be befitting to become a total and ruthless killer like her other demonic counterparts? It would ease the pain, become the weapon her mother wanted her to be and put this pathetic farce to an end -- wouldn't it?
After all, her growth was so bizarre and accelerated that she barely even had time to go through her infancy, childhood, teenage years and the numerous decades afterward that would mold her into an upstanding adult like most other races had a chance to. Thus, the whip-lash from this unnatural growth had finally hit the girl once she reached this level of emotional awareness. It felt wrong, and it felt right; so it all was so confusing for a two year old to process. Similar pains as to the early months of her life were all but creeping up on the unfortunate girls mind.
Yet, even still, the Omi Healing still active within her was the one thing keeping Neoveta's will in tact. Therefore, with all of this strain falling down The Banshee, she did what any child would do and latched on to something for a distraction. And that distraction was Inami Asthavon. Following the events of Australia, it seemed that Khala Asthavon was able to subdue Inami's own breakdown by forcing her into a deactivated state of consciousness. Therefore, since she was sick, Neoveta sought to using her gifts to accelerate Inami's recovery.
Everyday she fed her the prowess of her healing so that she could come back stronger, leaner and more within control of herself. She fed Inami food, tended to her injuries and nursed The Demoness back to health so that she could just escape her own problems for a bit. There was relief found by focusing on a problems outside of her minds troubled view. An act of charity and good will is what the girl needed. She found pleasure and happiness in doing so because she could wash away these feelings with ease. It was to the point where her internal conflict was all but a blur by the time Inami had recovered her consciousness.
When The Demoness came to, Neoveta pounced at the opportunity to bring Inami up to speed. She wanted to convey the past weeks that lead up to that moment into her mind via telepathy. It stunned her, but Inami seemed to ease over as she understood Neoveta's intentions and thanked her very much for saving her life. It is from this initial period that a sense of friendship was born between the two. After all, they were family and Neoveta had done Inami a great service; so they had plenty of ground to work with.
So as Inami started to gain her strength back, they spent sometime going on adventures throughout Demon World. They explored lost kingdoms throughout the vast planes of this dimension. Observing life from outside of the Asthavon Family was a fascinating experience to behold. Through these travels, they also began sharing each others life stories. Inami explained how she grew to become the person she was, while Neoveta gave Inami the gist of her short life through mental transferred. And after fighting alongside each other in these ventures, they grew to become a fearsome duo to tango with. Any sort of criminal looking for an easy prey, brute looking for a fight or aggressor meant to assassinate Asthavons were disposed of without much effort on their end.
So from these experiences, they were comfortable enough with one another to announce their friendship. It made pleased Neoveta to have a new companion like this and filled her heart with happiness. This was a great light to have in this period of Neoveta's life. Despite the strain from Khala's own steady mind grew progressively worse with each day, Neoveta found the strength to not let it get to her. That was all that she could do and there was no going back against that. She had invested far too much into this life to do so.
Thus, she moved on with the next chapter of her life with a heavy and burdened heart.Present Day
At the start of 2414, Neoveta seemed to have immerse herself back in her work after she was convinced enough to hold her instabilities at bay. Leaning on the Asthavon and coworkers for support, Neoveta bared the monstrous burden of holding a fraction of The Demon God's Heart within her. Around this time is when her body felt hungry around the clock; as if she had an unsatisfied appetite that could never be filled. It is why she took to devouring as many of her enemies as possible that she came across on the battlefield, devouring any sparse energy that wasn't attached to a living being and trying to meditate as much as possible to keep herself within check. The fatigue and exhaustion had also settled into her at this point and she seems very hard-pressed to find any relief for it.
Nevertheless, with the advancement of Mana Asthavon's powers in this period of time, she has picked up on the madness lingering within her own daughter. By utilizing her ability to consume madness to fuel her own existence, The Demon QUeen has taken to eating chunks of Neoveta's own psyche to give her temporary relief from time to time. This was done to help her focus, lead a decent life and get her job done as Omi Healing worked alongside it to keep her stable as Khala descended further into her lunacy. It was a rough time for her when it came to the mental forefront, but she would pull through.
Over the course of the year she has taken to improving the security measures over cities like New York, New London, Shadow Fall Village, Chaos Point and other similar stations for those within her social circle. She has even taken to helping Inami Asthavon maintain her new rise to Queenhood in this era as well. After realizing that her dear friend was going to need a hand in preserving her monarch, Neoveta assigned her R1 Shell to become apart of her faction called "The Devil 9". By doing this, Neoveta was somewhat tied to it through her replication and it became tasked with conforming to the rank of "Devil 4". This position would deal with the defensive integrity of the vast nation. With the modifications Inami did to it with her countries tailored defenses, Neoveta assumes that this favor should hold her for awhile.
Following the conclusion of Demonic Incursion, there was another profound change within Neoveta. Due to the fact that Khala's Heart has morphed to a great extent following the chaotic results of that battle, Neoveta is stated to have felt -- reassured. There are still imbalances within her, but now she attributes it to Deveta's reawakening coming about in that battle. Henceforth, she now feels more at ease around her mother as she has taken time to read her conscious during her slumber following the battle. The vicious creature that she encountered when Khala first awakened after Madness City seems to have been subdued and perhaps a chance at an actual relationship with her creator may be had given enough time. Neoveta is just weary of the influence Deveta has and senses something eerie about his return. It isn't a good thing, but she will respect her "father" because she does still not lose him. The complication is that he is a hard one to read and mistrust comes from not understanding that which is unknown.
Despite that, she still allowed for the transference of her R5 Shell to be transported into Hell in order for it to become customized towards that terrain. After Khala and Mana Asthavon claimed that realm for the demon's, their race is suggested to have taken a great interest in ensuring their dominance over that terrority. So if it will help the cause, Neoveta believes it cannot be helped. After all, with her having the function to experience the events her replicas endure as well, it should prove to be fascinating for her to observe how the Hell Realm operates in real time. It will also allow her an opportunity to serve alongside her "father" and get to know him better; as most Raksha, Danava and traditional demon's have spoken about their "God" thriving in this plane of existence. And with her "other" creator, Khala Asthavon, having her last whereabouts confirmed to be in Hell -- things are looking up for her to forming a bond with these two.
What is more, though, is that around this time is when she started to harmonize herself more profusely with Mana's desire to protect Ashlei Clixx. With the resurgence in The Hollow Queen's appearance in Shadow Fall, Neoveta has felt compelled beyond all logic to admire, lust and shield her. This stemmed from the deep attachments to this woman that her mother engraved within her mind at birth. Neoveta was noted as even watching the two mate because she felt so drawn to her scent, but had enough restraint not to join in and watch from afar. So she appears to have a good deal of control over these urges not to outwardly express them to her mother or Ashlei, but they are there.
The same sensations for Iriko Crow had grown within her as well from the adoration that Khala Asthavon had for him following their battle. However, since she had distanced herself from Shinigami and the Soul Society in general, this desire was less of a complicating matter to deal with than the close proximity she was to the Hollow Queen. But alas, This love for Ashlei Clixx and Iriko It makes her feel confused, uncomfortable and troubled; but it is just another bizarre complication to deal with in an already odd life that a mere three year old has lead. As she has lived more in her brief time in the universe as some do within one, two or three lifetimes.
So for now, she is in a stable place of sorts as she finds her place in this world and manages the duties she was born into as best as she can. All Neoveta can do is ensure that her family is taken care of, her kins kingdom's are preserved and that she stays true to herself as much as possible. As failure to stay faithful and strong to her mind will cause the monster within herself to consume her and that -- is unacceptable for the demoness.
____________________________________________________» Mana Asthavon:
Being that her shell is partly compromised from Mana Asthavon, Neoveta views her as one of her motherly figures. Therefore, she seems more docile and willing to listen to her orders as she is one of the forces that brought her into existence. Likewise, Mana seems to treat her like a daughter by spoiling her from time to time whenever she is in her palace. So with this bond attached to her, Neoveta sees herself as one of the tools needed in order to protect her mother's kingdom and will do what it takes to defend it at all cost.
As, for the most part, she understands that Mana would do the same for her after understanding the love she had for the Asthavon Family in general. Although there are harsh feelings about her conception, she is able to endure that thought as she believes that her intentions are mostly for the greater good of their kind. Granted, if Mana pushes too hard, Neoveta does feel she'd rebel too an extent and she is grateful for being given her space to achieve her methods as best as she sees fit. » Khala Asthavon:
This relationship is another mother and daughter dynamic because of the fact that Neoveta has pieces of Khala living on inside of her. However, unlike Mana, their bond isn't as close. This is because Khala Asthavon, upon her conception, was more unstable in nature and hard to be around for Neoveta. She understood that Khala would never really harm her in her sane states, but her unstable moods put this relationship at a distance. Therefore, despite viewing Khala in this fashion, there is still a hesitation to get too close to her. After her changes following the Demonic Incursion arc, Neoveta does now seem less timid around her. This is because she was able to sense the shift in her persona following that battle and now they will need to mend the damage done to this relationship from her past. » Inami Asthavon:
Inami was introduced to Neoveta one month after the Australia Arc ended. Due to the fact that Neoveta is often watching over most of the Asthavon compounds, she often tended to Inami's recover until she awakened. Through helping her recover during that moment of weakness, there seemed to be a bond forged between the two. Being that Neoveta had limited life experience, she did feel a pull towards her because it was the first time she ever really directly helped someone. Therefore, they have a firm understanding of one another's presence through this connection they share. Being that Neoveta communicates through telepathy often, Neoveta conveyed those feelings to Inami and a comprehension was granted to Inami to accept her as well. Thus, this makes Inami one of the few Asthavon's outside of her "mothers" that she has had any real contact with. One can even call this a friendship of sorts and one she doesn't mind associating herself with. » Ashlei Clixx:
This is a weird relationship for Neoveta. The feelings of admiration, lust and protectiveness over Ashlei Clixx from Mana seems to have stemmed over into Neoveta's own psyche. Henceforth, there is an urge within Neoveta to shield her as well through Mana's own will. She also has feelings of attraction, but she hasn't expressed that to either Mana or Ashlei in order to keep things from getting too awkward between this trio. So for now, she silently watches over The Hollow Queen whenever she happens to be within close proximity of her. Of course, if Mana is in greater danger, she will turn her priority to her mother, but still find a way to manage and protect Ashlei if it is within her power. » Deveta:
This is a rather distant relationship, as Deveta barely recognizes her if it weren't for Khala's will inside of Neoveta. However, from Khala's own psyche, there is a sense of fear stemming from this individual. She feels that if it weren't for Khala's influence that perhaps the relationship between these two would turn malicious and not in her favor. Therefore, she tends to respect him and be on guard whenever she is near this creature. Although, despite that fact, she still considers him to be one of the closet father figures that she has due to his more masculine presence from her point of view. So this relationship between these two is a rather tricky one for Neoveta as well. » Katana Asthavon:
She views Katana as a leader of sorts when they are working together on The Banshee force. The stern, sharp and sadistic traits of her persona really shape that mold. Therefore, she often just does what she is told by her as she as a very dominant aura to her. Outside of that, she still hasn't got a firm grasp on just who she is as a person. Although, if Mana looks fondly upon her, from the memories that she did share from her, there is a bit of trust from her -- if only from that. For the most part, however, there are no other real complications and Neoveta views her as worthwhile comrade to work alongside. » Edward Elric:
This one is even more of an enigma to her, but he seems to hold himself to a rather strong standard. By that, the masculine nature of his aura seems to infer strength to Neoveta and she feels rather safe when working with him. So as a result of that, she is on pretty neutral terms with him and views him as someone dependable; if only because of his power so far. There is still a long ways to go when it comes to finding out more about this man's persona, however. » Liu Asthavon:
She became aware of Liu's existence, on a more direct level, when they interacted with each other due to the fact that they are both members of The Banshee Force within Shadow Fall. Therefore, she automatically has a comfortable feeling when around this demon. And due to the fact that she has such an easy-going nature, she seemed quite different than the more chaotic, mentally unhinged and otherwise unstable members of the Asthvaon Family. Therefore, they were able to bond rather easily with one another as a result and seem to mesh well both on and off the battlefield. There is almost a sisterly dynamic between the two since they were both creations spawned by Mana in some form or another. Neoveta sees herself as the little sister, while Liu is the bigger sister in this relationship. So the connection between these two are rather close as a result of all of this occurring between them.» Rose Mischevang:
Being that Rose helped developed some of Neoveta's powers, she often tends to see The Primera Espada as a teacher of sorts. Although some of the other scientists and researchers that were apart of Shadow Fall tended to creep her out, Rose seemed rather different than the rest of them. There was a sense of calmness about this female that Neoveta gravitated towards and she seemed to have an idea of actually what she was doing. The Primera Espada opened many doors for Neoveta's mind, body and power; so she has much debt for her in that regard as well. And since Rose herself appeared to look out for her wellbeing, there is a silent master and pupil relationship between these two.» Nami Asthavon:
This is another relationship that seems to be a somewhat distant one. Throughout most of Neoveta's early life, she usually Nami Asthavon as an enforcer. That feeling is caused by the fact that Nami was often the one who would discipline Inami doing the first few months of her life when she was mentally unstable. So in Neoveta's eyes, she is an authority figure to be respected and followed. Which is why she believes it is even more fitting that Nami went on to become The Queen of the Vicara Nation. Nevertheless, Neoveta does love her in a platonic way and will do what is needed to protect her as well.» Asthavon Family:
Neoveta seems to hold a general sense of fondness towards the Asthavon family. From what has determined for herself, this most likely comes from Mana's own desires being infused into her psyche. It is one of the few reasons why Neoveta follows her order because she is able to understand that The Demon Queen is coming from a genuine place; despite her blood soaked past when it comes to dealing with others outside of her family. Therefore, the same sense of protection that Mana has for the Asthavon family is shared within Neoveta as well. Although she isn't directly close to all of them, she will do what she is able to ensure that they are secured with her power and under her Queen's rule. » Iriko Puzyri-Teimei Crow:
Being that Neoveta is in tune with Khala Asthavon's feelings, to an extent, she was able to feel the sudden ripple effect that let Deveta's heart aflare from the conflict it had with him. After Demonic Incursion had ended, Neoveta found it even easier to tame her mental instabilities by being connected to Khala's psyche to such an extend. Therefore, she has a favorable opinion of Iriko and the way he manages things after recalling some of his memories from the tethered link that Khala made with him. In fact, there are the same confusing sensations of admiration and love that she shares for Ashlei that stemmed from Mana's affection with her. Albeit, this is a one-sided relationship as Iriko, at this point, has never met Neoveta. » Shadow Fall:
Unlike the Asthavon, Neoveta holds a more neutral view on this faction. This is because she only protects this organization purely out of obligation from Mana. If it weren't for that tie piecing her together with this group, she most likely would just stick to being apart of the Devil 9 and Asthavon Family. However, there are a few people she is quite interested in within the organization itself. Beings such as Edward Elric and Liu Asthavon were some of the more interesting people she met from it. So it isn't all bad for her. » Demon Kind:
For the most part, Neoveta does hold a general sense of duty to do what she can for her race being that she has her creators blood flowing through her. Therefore, until they are proven guilty, Neoveta prefers to view them as innocents and use her power to protect them as she sees fit. So she seems to have an easy-time mingling with her own kind until they prove to otherwise wear down on her patience or warrant themselves towards becoming her enemy. As she has no problem slaughtering fellow demon's if they cross into her target range and become her foe. She has even gone as far as to become a cannibal of sorts and devour those who went against The Demon Queen's rule to fuel her appetite. So the relationship between her own people can turn from heaven to hell depending on how they approach her.
