THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
The Rakshasa of Sloth
I. Basic Information» Name: Ae
Her name originally started as Aergia, taken from the Greek goddess of sloth and laziness. After all it seemed to fit her perfectly, so why not keep the name as her own? However as it turns out this name was somewhat of a bother to repeat, and so she changed it instead to Aiea which, she figured, was close enough. Even this name was considered a wasteful effort to pronounce, and so she ultimately cut it down to Ae.» Titles: Aergia, Aiea, Angel’s Bane, Belphegor, Boatsman of the Fifth Circle, Lazy, Sloth, The Ice Queen, The Rakshasa of Apathy, The Rakshasa of Sloth, The Silent Queen, The Slumbering Beast, The True Queen
Aergia was her original name, also belonging to the Greek goddess of sloth and laziness, and so she decided to keep it as her own title. Aiea was, for a brief time, her name until that too was changed. Belphegor is the name given to her by many Christians, and so it too landed upon her personal list of titles. Angel’s Bane is a title bestowed upon her by some lesser Demons due to her ability to essentially remain the same within their presence, thus making her an appropriate warrior to place against their kind. Some call her the Boatsman of the Fifth Circle, both due to her position upon the 500th floor and due to the role Sloth plays within Dante’s Inferno. Who better to look after the sullen underwater corpses of the damned than a boatsman? People call her lazy, and so that too has become one of her grand titles. Sloth is a very obvious title. The Ice Queen is befitting of her apparently cold personality, and to a lesser degree her frosty breath. The Rakshasa of Apathy and The Rakshasa of Sloth are both official titles she holds. Her title as The Slumbering Beast is also fairly obvious, given the amount of time she spends sleeping. Finally, her title as The True Queen is one which is self-appointed merely for the sake of being lazy. After all, if she is the true Queen of Hell, then nobody can tell her what to do, which means she gets to sleep in late whenever she wants to!» Age: Generally appears between 16 and 20ish. Real age is 369.
What age she appears depends upon two factors, the first being whatever released form she is currently in. Her first two forms appear to be fairly young, while the final form she takes in a battle is older. The second factor is whether or not she is using the Demon’s natural ability to manipulate one’s body, which could open up her apparent age to just about anything. As for her real age she is 369 years old, although a majority of that has been spent sleeping. » Gender: Female
Ae has chosen to be a female. Of course with her body manipulation ability this doesn’t really matter much, and she could change it if she so desired, but sticking to one form is much easier.» Occupation: Guardian of Hell – Rakshasa of Sloth
Ae is the embodiment of Sloth. There is none lazier than her, and one would be hard pressed to find someone as apathetic as she is. She is also a Guardian of Hell, protecting the 500th level where she was born into. Of course she generally leaves the path open, and so she isn’t really that great at her job most of the time. Occasionally she might close the doors if someone really needs her to, or if someone else does it for her. She might even take to actually protecting the realm on occasion, although she typically tries to avoid fighting, if only because it is a tiring process.» Residence: Hell – Level 500
Ae’s home exists upon the 500th level of Hell. This place was not assigned to her or anything, nor is it a sign of her power or any sort of status within the hierarchical system of Hell, she was simply born here and, too lazy to move anywhere else, exerts her control here. Of course this also means that there are many more layers between herself and the entrance to Hell, which means she is less likely to be required for its defense, which of course means she gets to sleep more. She is generally late to any engagements anyways, so placing her so far from the front lines also makes strategic sense: by the time she is awake and ready to go her enemies might have only just reached her level of Hell! Her position also places her away from the so called ‘leaders’ of Hells, which means she is less likely to be called upon for really anything that they might require doing. All in all everything has worked out accidentally for her and her sleepy lifestyle.
The 500th level of Hell is a paradise for relaxation. Whenever Ae desires she can change the environment, whether it be to a sandy tropical beach, endless rolling hills covered in wildflowers, or even one giant steamy hot springs. Due to her laziness however it will generally remain within one particular state: her bedroom. Standing off to one corner is the entrance to the 499th level of Hell, a crimson stone gate which stands a kilometer in height and half that in width. Located one hundred kilometers away and on the opposite corner of her massive bedroom stands the entrance to the 500th level of hell, although this one is thrice as large and formed of solid gold.
Every inch of flooring is covered in one massive pillow. It never loses its shape and made of the softest, smoothest silk that a person might imagine. However if one were to cut away a piece of this pillow they would discover that it is, in fact, a very malleable metal. This is because of Ae’s weight, which is considerable despite her frame. Normal pillows would never recover their original form, wood would snap beneath her feet, and stone would crack with every step taken. That is a lot of repair work for someone as lazy as she is, and not something she is interested in working on. Besides, one massive pillow means she can comfortably lie down and fall asleep anywhere within her realm.
There is no ceiling within her layer of Hell, only an endless void of black which, depending upon what form her layer of Hell takes, might change into a starry night sky or an endless ocean of blue with a sun and plenty of poofy white clouds. Hills and mountains are created by separate ‘smaller’ pillows, and hidden within the valleys and crevices are various little homes, each complete with a bath and tables of somehow always fresh food. Occasionally one might find a library or a playground or whatever other means of entertainment that her servant has prepared for her, all scattered about throughout the landscape, just in case Ae decides to stop at one point within her home. In this way she is never far from food, a relaxing bath, and some form of entertainment. Finally, the temperature of her domain rests at a comfortable 70 degrees F unless she decides to engage in some change of scenery. While she slumbers the temperature will plummet to a frigid -400 degrees F.» Theme Song: (Clicky!)» True Appearance Written:
Ae’s true form tops out at a height of five feet. Her figure is petite and slim although lacking in any sort of athletic toning, suggesting that she never really works out. As is to be expected her bust size is nearly non-existent and her posterior is only as rounded as one might imagine. No visible blemishes, scars, or imperfections appear upon any portion of her body, mostly because it is easier to form her body without them. Her skin is also very pale, almost like porcelain, perhaps due to the time she spends sleeping indoors. While one might expect her to be as light weight as she appears Ae is actually incredibly heavy, weighing in at around ten tons.
At first glance one might believe that there is typically very little work put into managing her hair, which is white and stretches down to the floor. Thankfully she has her servant Ai to care for such a thing, and she spends time brushing and cleaning the threads out until they are smooth, thus keeping her hairstyle from turning into anything wild or crazy. Occasionally Ai will leave in the occasional braid, and there is a small errant clump that never seems to go away, constantly sticking out atop her head. Her eyes are a comforting shade of lavender, although her pupils are not black, instead consisting of a slightly lighter than lavender color.
Sloth’s Demon heritage is quite easy to detect. Starting off, her ears are pointier and slightly elongated compared to a normal person’s, sticking further out to each side of her head, although generally they are slightly masked by two errant bangs of hair which hang down past each of them. Stretching out from her backside is a thin smooth leathery black tail, its length ever shifting although it is always topped off by a slightly pointed heart shape. From the space between her shoulders emerges a pair of wings, crimson along the back and black facing forward. These wings have the look, consistency, and feel of fine silk fabric, although they appear to resemble something tattered and bat-like. If she so desires she can sprout a second pair lower still, or pull her wings into her back, leaving no evidence of their existence upon her skin. Resting atop her head is a pair of horns, the base of which is covered in black overlapping scales, although halfway up the length of each curved protrusion the scales end, becoming smooth and lavender like her eyes. Finishing off her demonic traits are tiny claws upon her fingers and toes and sharpened teeth within her mouth, along with a long tongue which is prehensile and typically used for snatching food without wasting energy with her hands. Of course any feature of her body can be changed at will, however this is the form she desires most, as it was the form she was born into.» Clothes:
Ae has many outfits, or rather she can change into any number at will, although generally this will only happen if she decides to change the appearance of her body as well. Otherwise there is one outfit she sticks with. Starting from the bottom, Ae dresses in a pair of light brown slip on shoes with slightly elevated heels. On her right leg she wears a solid black stocking which barely reaches past her knee, while on her left she wears a black sock covered with white ribbons and crimson bows. A black dress covers her torso, containing crimson buttons on the front and filled with soft white ruffles beneath the skirt, along with a few protruding from the cups over her chest. White ruffle armbands are worn near her shoulders and another is worn around her neck, covering up the fabric of a crimson tie that reaches down to her belly. A cape is worn which ends halfway down her back, black on the inside and crimson on the outside, topped with a triangular collar. It is designed to hide her wings while she has them out, as the fabric is very similar to the appearance and feel of her wings. Finally a pair of silken black gloves is worn on her hands to keep her from tearing things apart with her claws. Anyone who might glimpse up her skirt would discover a pair of simple black silken panties containing a tiny bright red bow on the front near the waistband.» Other Appearance:
Ae’s body is baby-soft and smooth to the touch, although her skin is a slight bit chilled compared to any normal person’s body. Typically she smells of lavender unless she decides to bathe with some other scent for whatever reason. Ae doesn’t really know how to speak. She never learned it and it always seemed to her as if it’d just take too much effort. Whenever she tries to speak it simply comes out as a terrifying roar. However if she were to learn to speak then her voice would rarely raise above a whisper, exiting in a soft timid tone due to her lack of experience with it. If she were to ever get upset then her voice would instead return to a deep guttural roar capable of shattering glass and shaking the ground beneath her feet. However she generally keeps a calm confident demeanor, typically tinged with a look of constant disappointment. She moves with this same level of confidence, typically only acting if she has already set her mind upon some objective or thing she desires so as not to waste her energy. Sloth is completely ambidextrous, although generally she favors her right because it is easiest. If one were to view her spiritual energy they would discover that it is a fuchsia color, and when she is cut she bleeds purple.» True Appearance Image:Full Size Here
II. Personality Traits» Personality:Aggressive:
Ae typically does not care about anything thanks to her apathetic nature. This makes sense with her being who she is. However those few things she does learn to care about she will pursue aggressively. After all, if it is important enough for her to give a crap about then it is surely important enough for her to have or to accomplish for herself! In these rare cases she will become stubborn and will seek to attain whatever it is she is currently caring about without hesitation. Not even her laziness will stop her in these cases as she will drop everything and focus completely upon her new objective, even if it means an exhausting route or a task which takes years to complete. While she is in this mood it would do anyone well to stay out of her way, else they be smashed into the ground, for she is not above being violent to get what she wants.
There will be no escape for whatever it is she is going after once it is caught by her powerful grip. Getting her to give up those few things she actually cares for is also next to impossible. Also in these cases there is simply no bargaining with her: she will take what she wants by dominating force if need be. Only a better deal, or a better thing, which she would also need to care about, might get her to give up a thing which she cares about. Maybe. Or maybe she will just take that as well. She isn’t greedy, she simply knows that anything which she might care about is probably important for her, and her caring about anything is a feeling which often slips from her grasp if she doesn’t keep it locked away.Apathetic:
The defining trait of the Rakshasa of Sloth would be her apathy. For all intents and purposes she simply does not care about anything. Since her conception this has remained a core part of her being and everything she does has at least a passing interaction with it, although a good portion of who she is could be considered to be directly driven by it. It is rare for this not to be the case, and in those instances she will cling tightly to whatever it is she currently cares for, simply because it is important enough for her not to be apathetic towards it.
When indulging in her Apathy Ae will otherwise remain relaxed and relatively carefree, seeking to do nothing but sleep. For this reason she can also be attributed with the word ‘lazy’, as generally she spends entire days or weeks in peaceful slumber. She does have a good reason for this though: everything she does takes more energy than the average person due to her incredibly dense composition. Even talking, were she to learn how, would become tiring for her, which is why she simply doesn’t try to do it. Typically she moves slower in everything that she does, the exception being of course if she has discovered something which snaps her out of her apathy. This also means she is almost always tardy to any appointment or date or so forth, unless it has been accounted for and she has been summoned in advance. Her slowness might also have other people considering her to be stupid. Now, she is most certainly forgetful, as she tends not to care about things enough to remember them, but she is smart enough to get things done when she really needs to be. All she needs to do is care enough to concentrate upon said things.
This apathy has a few side effects. First, she is incredibly flexible in her thinking, at least for anything she doesn’t care for. Changing her mind is no problem, nor would it be a problem for her to change her loyalties, so long as the new alternative means less work for her. If there is a lazier way to do something then she will easily abandon whatever plans she had before in order to accomplish whatever it is she was doing with the easier route. This apathy has also made her completely fearless. She cares not for death, or pain, or anything nasty or scary. Why fear something which doesn’t matter? Hurting her emotionally or mentally is difficult as she can just as easily shrug it off through sheer power of apathy alone, although this isn’t to say that she is completely immune to those types of lingering scars upon her psyche. Finally, she is also completely shameless. She will do what she wants, when she wants, how she wants, with whoever she wants regardless of whatever anyone else might think. Caring about what others might think just isn’t on her list of things to do. The fear of breaking laws doesn’t apply either: not only does she not care about them, but she isn’t afraid of them or their consequences, because the resulting consequences aren’t really something she cares about either.Lonely:
Being apathetic to the world around herself has left Ae very, very lonely. Of course she would never show this to others, and she rarely even acknowledges it herself. In fact, most of the time she can simply ignore this thanks to her apathy, however this has a side effect of keeping her from fixing the problem itself, thus creating a vicious and rarely ending cycle. Her apathy towards everything also tends to give others the impression that she is a cold heartless creature, and while she would disagree with this it also isn’t something she typically cares to correct, partially because it might be true and partially because it would be tiring. Typically during those rare occasions when she wishes not to be apathetic towards something it is during an attempt by her not to remain lonely any longer.Quiet:
Ae is a very quiet Demon. This isn’t because she is shy or anything. Talking is simply more exhausting than taking action. If she were to talk then it would lead to more talking, and listening, and her not getting her way or her becoming bored enough to simply fall asleep. Then she would need to wake up, listen again, talk again, and the process would simply repeat! All talking would ever do for her is wear her out. So, instead, she simply does things, which ties well into her naturally aggressive and domineering nature. That or she will simply ignore the things she doesn’t care about, or get rid of them if they might become a problem later. She never really learned how to talk either, partially because of the difficulties and partially because she never had a reason for it. Who needs to speak when they are alone? If she were to actually try to speak all that would be emitted would be a fearsome terrifying roar.Tactical:
Moving can be tiring for Ae, especially if she needs to do so with any substantial amount of speed. Dodging is typically difficult for her, and any strikes she unleashes against an opponent which misses is simply wasted energy. For this reason Ae has developed a way of thinking dependent heavily upon planning out everything in advance. By simply not speaking Sloth gives her mind more time to process every little thing detected within her senses, mentally sifting through her vast library of knowledge and notes made during whatever current engagement she is involved in. Weaknesses are identified and plans laid out for dealing with whatever needs to be dealt with. Simulations are devised and run over and over within her head, each taking into account separate minor variables, until at last she settles upon a movement. Sometimes this might take a while, leaving her to essentially run on auto-pilot until she figures out exactly what she plans to do, however the payoff is generally worth it.
Combat situations are not the only useful application for Ae’s tactical mind. Social engagements can be especially tiring, and even during these periods she will take time to carefully consider her actions before responding. With this she cuts down on wasted energy, and it will be clear to anyone she interacts with that she has put at least some thought into her actions. This might come off to others as her being either careful or slow, and both would technically be correct, however she generally doesn’t care about such opinions either. Of course when she actually does decide upon an action she will make it quickly and decisively, but until that point it might seem as though she is slacking off or growing bored or even tired. On occasion she might even drift off into a quick nap, partly due to her apathy and partly because she is trying to think her way through the social engagement, although anyone she is interacting with might interpret it another way entirely.
Training is an exhausting ordeal for anyone, especially when one is attempting to create some new technique or ability. This is an especially problematic area for Ae, who gets exhausted enough as it is with any less vigorous physical activity. In order to get around this issue Sloth taps into her great well of knowledge and experience gained through the millions of souls which lead to her creation, typically while she is asleep. New techniques, ideas, strategies, and styles are concocted while she rests, for within her mind lurks an immense library of knowledge created. Combined with careful planning it might appear to others that she is able to simply whip out a brand new attack from thin air, thus giving her a surprise factor, when in reality she has simply not used these mentally mastered abilities within the physical realm.
Fueling her tactical nature is a desire to learn more and to discover new things. While this is partially due to her drive to find things which might break her out of her apathy Ae’s scholarly trait is mostly something she has developed due to her way of thinking about things. Within her mind lies a massive library containing all her conscious and unconscious thoughts, memories, ideas, and even the ingrained and undiscovered techniques which lie deep within her being. Whenever she sleeps she can typically be found here reading and studying. In fact it has become one of the very few things she finds comfort within despite her apathy.Unsatisfied:
Ae is almost always bored. Rarely does she find excitement in anything, as most things she simply does not care about. To find excitement in something first requires her to care for something or about something, and generally this will only be accomplished whilst in the pursuit to an end to her loneliness or during a particularly difficult fight. She is also very difficult to fully please, as even temporary breaks from her apathy are just that: temporary. When such things only briefly satisfy her, and this is almost always the case, she becomes more upset and more unsatisfied, and on rare occasions it may even make her angry. This drives her to constantly search for new things which might bring her pleasure, or excitement, or fear, or really any feeling at all besides apathy. Usually this only results in her feeling more upset and angry and displeased, but at least she does try. Of course when pursuing such things she is also in a constant battle with her never ending exhaustion and subsequent laziness, however with enough time and effort she believes that she may someday find something which her apathy will not apply to.» Other Personality:
Ae does not like a lot of things, nor does she dislike a lot of things. Sleeping is something she does enough to warrant at least some appreciation, and so this could theoretically be considered a like. She also spends a good chunk of her sleeping time reading within the great library of her mind, and so reading too is something which she often enjoys. Being woken up early can cause her to become upset, and so this too could theoretically be considered a dislike. Many likes and dislikes are temporary for her, fading away with the passage of time as she forgets about one thing or another.
Nor does Ae have much in the way of a moral code or a set of goals to accomplish. Having a moral code requires her to first care enough about other people to make one, and both of these are tiring concepts to her. Her only real code is, simply put, do what she needs to do and do what she cares about doing before sleeping. As for her goals, she actually wishes that she had any. Well, occasionally she wishes for this, and then she sinks right back into her apathy for such things, however the dream of having dreams always seems to pop up at one point or another. Perhaps the closest thing to a goal that she does have is to no longer be lonely, and to find something to care about, although both are tall orders for her to fulfill.
Sexually Ae is simply not active. First she’d need to find it within herself to care about such things. Considering her role as Sloth this is unlikely, although not impossible as she does on the rare occasion manage to break free from this shell. Plus it isn’t an avenue that she has yet explored, and so it might possibly be something to help her with her apathy and loneliness problems. Next she’d need to actually solve the issue of her loneliness, which is a daunting and exhausting task in itself. This would mean finding someone who cares enough to do such things with her, and someone she cares enough to do such things to. Then she’d need to acquire a partner who could actually survive the act. Not only would one of the two need to be willing, but her immense weight rules out many potential partners and really only limits her to those who are supernaturally gifted. Finally, when all is said and done, she’d need to go through with it, which would normally be too exhausting for her. However if somehow every specific parameter had been met then she could be considered omnisexual, mostly because she simply doesn’t care about things like gender, or race, or age, or most anything really.

THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
The Tale of Sloth
III. Character History» ConceptionActive Years: 2047 – 2106 (59 Years)
Long ago within a realm located deep within Hell laid a great city of spiraling crimson stone towers, stretching out for kilometers over an ocean of bubbling molten metal. Hundreds of thousands of Demons, the Kushanda, inhabited these lands alongside millions of tortured souls, most of who were broiled within the ocean of heat below. These poor creatures worked mindlessly day after day, processing those who would be kept within the 500th layer of Hell and those rare few who would be sent deeper still. They had lived this way for countless lifetimes, however they had started to become obsolete, falling behind on their work as more and more souls were dropped off, and soon the creatures they were tasked to watch over started to grow restless and disobedient.
Then, in an instant, everything was silent. The souls were gone. The Kushanda were gone. The ocean of molten metal had even cooled, plunging the once vibrant city into darkness. Like flipping a switch the entire operation ground to a halt. No witnesses remained to tell their story, no survivors to carry out their legacy. Only hills of bones and ashes remained, covering every bit of the landscape. However within these remains lay a single moment of memory, each one different but all consistent in their main theme: fear.
From the bleached white skull of one Kushanda rose a physical embodiment of the creature’s last memory, a shivering mass of pitch black roughly a centimeter in height and width. This poor creature feared loneliness. So, with great hesitation it crept out from its little hovel, drawn towards another mass of bleached skeletal remains nearby. Another similar being was discovered amongst the pile of bones, quivering in fear of death, however both creatures felt compelled to join together. So, driven by their mutual fear, this is what they did.
Two memories became one, two creatures now sharing form and mind alike. Days passed while they sorted themselves out. Ultimately they had discovered that their one memory was longer. They did not know what they were, or why they were there, but this desire to know more along with their still freshly minted fears drove them to seek out more companions. Gradually the tiny mass of black goo grew larger. First it developed a single blue eye, and then a second red one days later. A mouth soon followed, although it did not know how or what to speak, opening and closing repeatedly with no sound.
The black blob gradually grew larger and larger, every so often creating another eye or another mouth. During brief instances fingers might appear, or even a hand, but such things were tiring to hold as multiple minds struggled to assert their dominance, including the original. While it was a meter across the creature only needed to deal with one or two stray passengers, but now as it grew to ten times that size there were far more to deal with. Every day a new black speck joined the shared community of creatures, adding another memory and another mind. Words started to flash within its mind, occasionally phrases, all of them screaming. It became harder to do anything at all as its weight grew and its body spread outwards to accommodate the new arrivals. A voice spoke to the creature. It told the creature to forget about the voices and to sleep. Of course this was unusual given the fact that it didn’t know how to speak, but that didn’t really matter too much to it. The original speck, having grown tired of containing itself and now struggling with the others, drifted off into a deep peaceful slumber just as the voice had suggested it do.
When the creature’s eyes next opened twenty years had passed. The growing blob now formed a black mountain of squirming and wiggling individuals, piled nearly a kilometer high and thrice that in radius. It tried to move but found itself stuck. It tried to think but every thought was drowned out by a thousand murmuring memories. Its mouth opened and another smaller blob fell into it. When it closed again there was a scream and the familiar feeling of fear. The blob tried to climb out when the mouth was opened again, but found itself slipping right back down when it shut, screaming again and again while the same thing repeated. Finally there was silence, at least from that one tiny speck which had been mashed into oblivion. Calm set in for that brief moment. Initially there was worry for the now obliterated blob, sadness for its passing, even fear of what might come next, but an old familiar voice spoke to it. That voice told the creature not to worry, not to care, to cast out those feelings and to continue on its course. The voice had not been wrong before, and so the next thing the creature created was sharpened teeth.
Within the next few days more of the fearful blobs had fallen in, each one devoured quickly by the original creature in an attempt to silence the screams and fear that followed. Room was created in this way, allowing it some freedom of movement. Every little feast brought more fear and another brief memory, but it also brought a shred of peaceful silence. If it could create that silence then it could return to slumbering. So it continued to devour those around itself, each time growing larger and stronger though forced to endure the screams and the fear over and over again.
Another mouth was created, and then another and another until sharp toothy maws covered a majority of the creature’s body. Eyes were created to see. Arms were created to reach. Fingers were created to grasp and claw and shovel the squirming masses into its body. With time it grew numb to the screams and the feelings of fear. The only feeling which remained was a desire to rest as exhaustion grew with every meal. Occasionally new feelings emerged from some larger masses which had also devoured their brethren. Some were proud of their new form. Some were hungry. Some wanted to mingle close to others. Some were angry. Some just wanted more. Some were envious of the original. All were briefly felt, but these feelings too were washed away by the creature’s desire for slumber. Nothing else mattered.
It took another ten years but, at last, it had accomplished its goal. Now that one tiny creature, the original being, had become the mountain. Mouths were eliminated, eyes closed, arms reabsorbed into its mass as exhaustion set in. All other feelings had been extinguished, all sounds silenced. Memories filled the creature, but going through such things would be exhausting. Simply remaining awake was a chore given the creature’s immense size and weight. One memory became more important than the rest: the memory of slumbering. It had given the creature strength before and the energy to accomplish the monumental task of becoming the mountain. Besides, this is what the creature had been working towards. With silence filling the 500th layer of Hell the creature slept.
This time things were different. Twenty years passed, but now the creature dreamed. While it slept it worked unconsciously to compile the memories into thoughts and ideas and knowledge. These were formed into notes, and the notes into pages, and the pages into tomes. An immense mountain of discarded books was slowly arranged into a great organized library within the creature’s mind. By the time it woke up the task had been completed. Now the rested creature could think, it could form words and ideas not involving slumbering or devouring. However its enormous size was a problem: such a mass was exhausting even when it wasn’t doing anything. It remembered that it once held a form, a solid body. Smaller would be better, it would mean less energy exhausted. There was nothing to be done about the weight, but perhaps that wouldn’t matter too much.
Nine exhausting years passed while the creature slowly concentrated itself inwards, forcing its mountainous mass of pitch black goo into a small humanoid shape. Many eyes came together to form two lavender orbs. Arms were made for grasping and legs for moving. A single mouth was formed for feeding, a single nose for smelling, and two slightly elongated pointy ears for hearing. Ultimately the creature decided to take on a female form, choosing it simply because the creature it originally hailed from resembled something feminine. Curves and delicate shapes were formed to match this new persona, hair added and skin shifting in tone to complete the image. Its original being also had a tail and claws and a set of horns, and so these too were replicated. From its back sprouted fabric-like wings, and as these curled around its new petite figure the creature finally drifted off into sleep once more, comfortably wrapped up in the warm silken flesh.» Rise of RakshasaActive Years: 2106 – 2201 (95 Years)
During the first five years of its new feminine form the creature slumbered. The first four of these years were spent sifting through the collected knowledge within its mind, learning essentially the basics of what was needed for surviving and living a normal life, to act the part of its new body. It was during the fifth year that a name was decided upon: Aergia. Originally this name belonged to a Human culture’s goddess, however it seemed to fit her perfectly well. Unfortunately within a few days it was decided that the name was too long and would take too much energy to say, and so it was changed to Aiea. Even this turned out to be just a tad too long, and by the time she woke up she had decided to change it again to the much simpler Ae.
A terrible noise emerged from the creature when it awoke and started yawning, a deep guttural roar which shook the ground and collapsed a nearby ancient spire of stone. Eyes fluttered open, only to be met by darkness. Within the 500th level of Hell only she resided. The feeling of loneliness briefly returned to mind, although it was very quickly overshadowed by another: disappointment. What was she to do with this new life of hers? Sleep? That couldn’t be it. Even if that were the case it could certainly be improved. Five years of sleeping upon jagged metal floors was bound to become uncomfortable even for her.
The first task was to tear down the ancient remains of those creatures which had inhabited the realm before her. Ultimately they would do nothing but get in the way of whatever creations might come to mind. Plus the spiked metal floor and the cold hard stone spires were both uncomfortable. Neither would be good enough for her. She was, for all intents and purposes, the ruler of this cold dark abyss. The least she could do was to shape it in her own image.
When she tried to sit up she discovered that her body would not initially budge. Ten tons were concentrated into a five foot tall child’s body. Anything she did would be exhausting. Still, it was much less work to move such a slim arm than it would have been to move a mountain of black goo. With this in mind she tried again to sit up, exerting as much force as she could possibly manage. As it turned out she was much stronger than she’d given herself credit for, and after a few seconds of struggling she managed to sit herself up. It took her another minute to finally stand up onto her feet, but now she would be able to start her work, so it was worth it.
Ae’s kilometer long journey to the closest standing stone pillar took an entire day. Every few feet of trudging along the jagged metal floor brought her to exhaustion, forcing her to take constant breaks to rest her muscles. Eventually she did arrive and, after an hour long nap to recover she decided to test her full strength. A fist was cocked and drawn back, concentrated force condensing further like a spring. When she unleashed her punch a sizeable chunk of the great stone pillar was shattered and torn away, aided quite a bit due to the momentum driven behind her heavy fist, however its immense size would require a much greater effort before it ever toppled to her power.
Another brief nap was taken. Within her mind she searched for an answer to her problem, and after a day’s rest she finally came up with an idea. Ae held a massive library within her head. Surely there would be secrets hidden within, something which might give her the power to deal with this issue. Of course she had no idea what that could possibly be, but it would probably be more efficient than simply punching her problems into oblivion.
Instead of simply waking up Ae decided to search deeper still. Through every little shred of her being she ventured, seeking out greater power and missed untapped wells of energy. This time fifty years passed as an endless amount of simulations passed through her head. New techniques were dug up, new abilities unlocked, and new strategies formed. She was blessed with the power of a Demon, but something else was felt deeper within, something more powerful and far more ancient than she was. It felt right to her, somehow very familiar despite its mysterious state. Only by tapping into this source could she imagine completing the daunting task before her, and so taking extra time to explore it within her mind was certainly worth doing.
For the first time in her new life Ae was truly excited. It felt strange to her, but it certainly wasn’t anything she disagreed with. As she woke from her long slumber the petite figure leapt to its feet, filled with energy and a desire to work. Days passed as time was taken to tap into the same feelings she’d discovered during her sleep. The ancient power belonged to her and her to it. Years of slumbering had made her powerful. This realm was hers to control, hers to shape and to command. It was her home, and it would bend to her will.
A heavy hand lifted towards the ceiling far beyond her reach, vision filling with darkness. There would be no ceiling. Not in her home. She was not to be caged like some animal. Stone cracked, mountainous chunks peeling away, threatening to crush everything below. For a brief moment they fell, but an instant later they were sucked upwards into the black void above. Her realm was filled with an otherworldly light. It had no point of origin, casting shadows at random.
Crimson stone spires were revealed, as was the ocean of jagged metal. Hands pushed outwards now, expanding the walls of her world. It would not be endless. There would be no point. But it would be sufficiently large enough for her. The landscape surrounding her was flattened completely, floors pushed downwards and stone spires torn apart. From their remains she created a massive gate, which she decided would lead to the 499th level of Hell, which resided above her own.
Next Ae’s focus fell upon the frozen sea of metal beneath her feet. Wings spread out behind her, moments later joined by a second set. In a blur of movement they lifted her obscenely heavy body, slowly pulling her into the air. Her eyes closed, and for a minute she napped while she remained hovering in place, deeply slumbering despite everything. Energy was gathered for the task ahead. When her eyes snapped open once more she lifted both hands upwards. The massive gate she’d already created lifted into the air. Light radiated upwards from below as the entire floor was rapidly heated up, forming a great sea of bubbling liquid metal. Globs of glowing white lifted out from the sea, slowly forming a second gate at least twice the size of the crimson stone structure created before. Created of pure gold, this new doorway would provide access to the 501st layer of Hell.
Finally Sloth’s gaze drifted towards the floor. Leaving it an ocean of superheated metal would not be very comfortable. A hand turned towards the ground, fingers wiggling as the composition was changed. She would create a new metal, one which was soft and silky smooth, malleable to an extent yet nearly immune to tearing. The entire floor would become one massive cushion, a bed made completely of metal, as would the walls of her domain. For any normal person it might be uncomfortable and hard, but for the ten ton Ae it would be a perfect balance between firmness and squishiness. Massive globs lifted upwards, forming pillows made from the same material, only these varied in firmness for a variety of comfort. Some were the size of small mountains, and the smallest were the size of a small car. All were scattered randomly about, creating a new landscape, and then once she was comfortable with the results Ae allowed the two massive gates to settle down, one on each end of her realm.
As soon as Ae’s feet hit the floor she was out, immediately drifting off to sleep while her body crumpled into the cushiony metal floor. Changing her home had been the most exhausting thing she’d done to date. This time she slept for forty years, although the purpose wasn’t simply to recover from the work she’d just accomplished. If she always required a year’s rest after a single hour’s worth of work then she’d never really get anything done. It was finally time to get used to her new body, if only to keep her from being exhausted all the time.» Breaking in the BodyActive Years: 2201 - 2211 (10 Years)
Ae’s training regime started the instant she woke up, first with an hour of stretches which were, due to her body weight, somewhat difficult. An entire day’s worth of light jogging followed this in order to warm up her body, and then another hour of stretches to further prepare it. Then a thought came to mind: why do this alone? In fact, why do anything on her own? She had the power to fix it, so why didn’t she? Forty years would provide her with plenty of energy for this and for getting accustomed to her body.
Sloth’s servant would need to be quick, for they would be tending to every chore within her realm. It was decided that a piece of her would be used in its creation. Her right hand plunged into her chest, shattering ribs and tearing through muscle and skin. Hot purple liquid oozed out from the wound as tiny claws gripped upon her still beating heart. There was plenty of pain but it was ignored, for pain was not something she cared for: it only exhausted her further and was mostly unnecessary. With a single tug she dragged the organ from her body. Fat droplets of blood splattered across the floor. Her vision faded in and out for a few moments, however it cleared as she pushed all natural warnings created by her body into the back of her mind, caring not for the reminder of her injury.
Energy poured forth from her body, flooding into the sacrifice she held within her right hand. A simple form was imagined within her head and then, with a flash of emerald light, the ritual was complete. Before her stood another feminine figure, height nearly equal to her own, with a weight equal to her own at ten tons. The girl’s skin was black, hair a shimmering green while her eyes were lit with an emerald light. This creature’s eyes held heart-shaped pupils which glowed faintly. Simple clothes were created: a skirt and a shirt for decency, along with a pair of underwear for the same reason.
Darkness took over her vision. Even she could not ignore her grievous injuries forever, and so she allowed herself to drift off into slumber for the rest of the day, both to recover some of her lost energy and so that her wound could properly heal up. At least this gave her time to think up a proper name for her new creation. It had to be something that fit, but also something that was easy to say. Easy was, after all, the best way to go about things.
By the time she’d woken up she discovered that all traces of blood had been cleaned from her body and from the floor in front of her. Her creation had pressed itself close to her body, arms wrapped around her waist. Nearby rested a dirty bucket filled with purple tinged water and a rag which had been used for cleaning. She didn’t remember creating either, but such thoughts drifted from her mind. After all, why care about such a little detail? Regardless, her new friend deserved a name, and Ae had decided upon one which fit: Ai.
The first section of Ae’s training regime involved chasing her new creation. As it turned out Ai had been gifted with all of Sloth’s speed, so catching the girl was incredibly difficult. Making matters worse was Ae’s constant nap breaks. Ai would flee, Ae would give chase, Ae would get tired, and then she would stop for a brief half hour nap. Over the next year Sloth focused more on stamina than anything else.
Year two consisted of more or less the same thing, only Ae started to build up her speed during the second half. On a few occasions there were some near misses, but still Ai eluded her. However her resting periods had been cut down drastically. Now she could exert herself for longer periods of time with only minute long naps. By now her body felt natural, the weight still tiring though no longer obtrusive.
During the third and fourth years Ae focused much of her training on her wings. While hovering was not too difficult such a thing would only be of limited use during a fight or any emergency situation. She needed to be faster, and she needed to get used to carrying loads. So once again she chased Ai, only this time using just her wings to move, whether it be hovering at speeds just above the ground or soaring higher within the sky in order to dive bomb towards her target. As it turned out her wings were laden with power, which made it much easier to move with them. Within the first year she again resorted to longer naps, however she quickly managed to improve herself to the point of requiring almost none. She even managed to catch Ai on a couple of lucky occasions, and eventually she took to carrying Ai while she took flight, which doubled the weight but made the training twice as effective. In time even this became comfortable enough for her, which meant it was time to move on to the next phase of her training.
On the fifth year of her training Ae started to focus upon the many techniques and abilities that had been discovered lying dormant within her mind, and this training would last for the next six years. As a Demon and the Rakshasa of Sloth Ae had certain abilities ingrained within her, some of which she shared with other Demons and some of which were her own. Many were mastered within the first two years of this period, and with nothing else to do even Ai joined in. Together they unlocked dormant powers, occasionally spending a day or two testing them out on each other simply out of curiosity for what it might feel like to experience such things.
It was during the final years of this exhausting training period that Ae placed all focus upon achieving another form. As a Rakshasa she had a body naturally inclined towards living within Hell, and she could tap into the latent power of this realm in order to make herself drastically stronger. At first she tried to unlock this new form with brute force. For a year she trained as hard as she possibly could, forcing herself to stay awake while she fought off constant attacks by Ai. When that didn’t work Ae finally realized that the problem was not one of physical power, or even the amount of energy she could generate. Something within her mind simply was not clicking right.
Planting herself into a comfortable seated position, Sloth entered her mental library whilst in a half asleep state. Ai also snuggled up with her, entering into her mind to assist with the search for an answer to this new predicament. Day and night they scoured through countless books and tomes, each containing information and memories and ideas, both things she’d discovered and things ingrained within her blood. Whatever mindset she needed to have had to be different than any she’d had previously, otherwise she would have already unlocked that new form. As far as she knew she received her greatest power from slumbering, and so this was used as a starting point.
Sloth was a creature of slumber and laziness, and she had both of these aplenty, but that wasn’t all. Apathy played a big role within that title. That too she already had plenty of, but then perhaps that was the problem. Apathy meant not caring for things. This felt natural for her and she strived towards it, but in a way that meant caring about not caring for things. It was a contradiction, and while it felt completely natural she would need to break free from it if she was to ascend to a new state of being.
Not caring came easy to her, so not caring about not caring was simple enough, right? First she had to focus on deadening the feelings she held towards everything else, and only then when she felt her most natural could she stop caring about even that feeling. Feeling normal, striving to feel normal, none of it could matter. However at that point it became a bit of a struggle. Now she fought against her natural instincts. What was she to do? It started to upset her. None of it made sense, especially not the anger which boiled within her. It angered her that she was getting angry. Like other feelings before it her building rage was tossed away. There was no reason to care for it. Then, it happened.
In a sudden flash of clarity it came to her: all of this training, this striving for more power, was holding her back from attaining it. It fueled feelings which she had no need for. In fact, all this time the answer had been sitting right in front of her face! Well, not literally, but close enough. The form she was trying to attain was already attained, already within her grasp to draw out, ingrained within her body from birth. Within her wings sat great power, concentrated most heavily, but she’d never really cared to place much notice into it before. It was just there. All she had to do was cast them away, to free her mind from the burdens of feeling and to unleash the hidden power stored within.
Ai hopped away as Sloth quickly stood to her feet, slipping out of her meditative pose. Without hesitation she reached back, gripping upon her wings, and then with one solid tug they were torn away from her body. The pain was substantial though quickly cast aside, not a care in the world for it as she focused on tapping into that well of energy. No longer held back by its prison, Ae’s Dagi Tvaca was released.
There were some physical changes: shifts in color, larger horns, a bladed segmented tail, an expansion to her claws, and even the creation of new glowing wings, but none of this held a flame to the excitement which coursed through her mind. No longer did she care about not caring. In fact she didn’t care about anything or anyone, not even herself. She was numb to all feelings. This enlightened state of apathy was euphoric for her. All she wished to do now was indulge in it. However it would not last long, and soon she found herself breaking out from the newly discovered form, crumpling to the floor and right into slumber.» The Great SleepActive Years: 2211 – 2411 (200 Years)
With Ai snuggled up by her side the Rakshasa of Sloth slept, resting from the exhaustive experience of the past ten years. The new form that she’d attained used a lot more energy than she imagined. Or perhaps she simply did not how to use it correctly. It was decided that she would spend her time locked within a state of slumber until something exciting happened.
Of course she wouldn’t be spending this time only sleeping. First she delved more into the new form that she’d very briefly discovered, seeking out its secrets and those techniques she hadn’t had the time to use. They would all be exhausting and some taxing on her body, but with enough time she was certain that she would grow powerful enough to use it all without too much worry. After all, in the past sleeping had made her more powerful. It stood to reason that all she needed to do was sleep even more!
During her studies into the new form she attained it was discovered that yet another form existed, one which required her to join together with her creation. Initially it didn’t make much sense. She had created Ai. How would fusing back together make her stronger? Perhaps there was a portion of herself which was missing, one which she didn’t even realize that had gone into her Hell Beast’s conception. This was supposed to be the pinnacle of Sloth, the greatest height of power that she could imagine, which meant it was at least worth looking into.
Five years of focus went into this new topic. She had already unlocked one form, and so unlocking another couldn’t really be too difficult. Still, was she even strong enough? Would it bring her anything past more power? Perhaps it would bring her closer to Ai. Maybe she would get to feel something which she’d never felt before. If that were the case then she might be able to finally find something to care about, something which wasn’t simply temporary.
She decided to test this new form out, although she would remain asleep while she did so. Ai was instructed to remain physically close. However it was no simple feat. To join physically meant to join mentally, and to join mentally meant to join at the deepest of levels. Two would once again become one. Both of them had to be in the right mindset.
For the next one hundred years Ae and Ai worked together on unlocking and perfecting the method for fusing together. Half of that time was spent simply trying to figure out the procedure, which was accomplished thanks to their sleeping state where Ae was able to sustain it despite the exhausting drain on her energy reserves. More techniques and abilities were discovered, and they too were focused upon, although to a lesser extent for the time being. With the form unlocked the two of them spent weeks resting in between each new attempt at joining, seeking to do so with less energy used and less consumed while in Ae’s new form.
With the epitome of her being reached Ae had little left to work towards. All was quiet within her layer of Hell. She had no friends save for Ai, if it could even be called that, and while it was something she occasionally desired she was, at the moment, quite content with what she had. Entering her new form so many times had wiped out her desire to really do anything but sleep. It was decided that Ai would keep a watch. If something interesting enough occurred, or if someone actually visited her home then Ae would be woken from her slumber.
Having given her Hell Beast her orders Ae sunk into the deepest slumber she had to date, fully embracing Sloth in every meaning of the word, only this time not to recharge or to gain power but instead simply because she felt like it. Ai did not mind this terribly. For the next ninety five years she remained by Ae’s side, cuddling and slumbering with her beloved mistress. Peace reigned within the 500th level of Hell.» Sloth AwakensActive Years: 2411 – Current (~5 Years)
Ai was suddenly woken from her slumber when her mistress accidentally rolled onto her. Both legs and many lower organs were crushed. Unfortunately Sloth remained slumbering, and so Ai was forced to tear the upper half of her body away from the sleeping Rakshasa in order to escape the dangerous position she was in. After putting herself back together and cleaning up the resulting mess the Hell Beast stretched out and took a glance around. Only then did she notice something troubling.
Ever since their creation neither gate to the 500th level of Hell had been unlocked or opened. All this time they had not had visitors simply because reaching the realm was nearly impossible. Ae’s power made certain that nobody would intrude, at least not without considerable force. Still, perhaps it was not too bad. Only three hundred years, give or take a few, had passed. What exciting things could have possibly occurred within that time?
With haste Ai hurried over, unlocking and opening each massive gate. A year was spent cleaning up the entire realm so that it was spotless and free from even the tiniest flake of dust. Another year was spent creating homes and food and recreation areas. She planned on awakening her mistress, if even for just a little while, for she had missed the companionship they typically enjoyed together. If need be she could make up an excuse, something like ‘Oh the Moon exploded, but it got put back together’. Really anything exciting would do, anything to get her mistress focused on something other than sleep.
The next three years were spent sitting next to Sloth. Having entered her mind, Ai tried her best to wake the slumbering Rakshasa, however it was no easy task given just how deeply the Demon was within her dream realm. First she had to locate Ae, and then she actually had to drag her back into the world of the conscious. Initially Ae didn’t wish to leave, for the slumbering was comfortable and came naturally to her. Ultimately the excuse that the Moon had been blown up did work, for it was something interesting and new.
Only recently did Ae awaken. Her roaring yawn could be heard and felt within the 501st and the 499th layers of hell. And, as it turns out, the Moon was exploded! Or, at least, it was partially exploded. Still, it was something for the Hell Beast to be happy about. Now that Sloth has finally awoken she plans on finding new exciting things, anything to break the monotony of her constant feelings of apathy.

THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
The Natural Abilities of Sloth
IV. Natural Skills» Flight:
For as long as Ae has been a Rakshasa she has had wings. Initially they were created to act as a blanket for her during slumber, but they have since found use as a tool for moving around. With two wings beating rapidly Ae is able to sustain a hovered flight, even moving backwards if need be. While her wings hold a great deal of power Sloth is not very light. In this form her flight speed only barely surpasses her ground speed, and moving with other objects becomes difficult.
When the time calls for something greater Ae can sprout a second set of wings lower than the first. The new additions double her flight speed, far surpassing her ground speed. Lift is also doubled, allowing her the ability to carry heavy loads, although not at her maximum speed. Maneuverability also increases, especially while she is hovering, as both sets of wings work together to shift her position around within the air.
Even with two sets of wings Ae will have troubles flying over distances. This is, again, due to the concentrated weight of her body, which makes flight twice as exhausting as her ground movements. For the most part she will use her wings for a quick boost in speed and momentum during an attack, or if she needs to quickly depart from her current position.» Hot and Cold:
Ae is naturally inclined to a variety of environments. Apathy plays some role in this: as the Rakshasa of Sloth she can shrug off a great deal of things, temperature fluctuations being one of those things. She also has her Demonic heritage to thank, for her body is quite accustomed to intense heat due to the Demon’s natural propensity towards living in hot places. In this sort of environment she does use a little more energy than others of her kind as her body seeks to cool itself internally, although not on any substantial level.
Sloth’s comfort level also extends to the extreme opposites. Again Apathy plays a partial role, but this is primarily due to her sleeping habits. Energy itself is an opposing force for Apathy, which seeks to suppress it, and so the energy held within the air itself is drawn into her body, thus forcing the temperature within her domain to plummet. Hundreds of years have been spent sleeping within incredibly frigid temperatures nearing absolute zero. It should come as no surprise then that she is used to such conditions.» Supreme Density:
Sloth’s original form was that of a literally mountainous creature. Such a state would waste a lot of energy to move, and so the colossal being was condensed into the tiny humanoid figure she has today. This feat took her nine years to complete. None of the weight was lost because none of her mass was removed, only the volume was shifted. As a result of her compressed form Ae has an incredibly dense form. Every part of her body shares this trait, from her skin and muscles down to her bones and even her organs.
Strikes made against her body will often fail to do much damage to her. Bones withstand forces meant to break them. Precision attacks, normally aimed towards the soft and squishy organs hidden within her body, fall short of doing anything beyond temporarily bruising them. Even without her Akuma Kyodo Ae’s skin is typically able to withstand bullet impacts and the cutting edge of a bladed weapon. The incredible weight of her small body means that attacks will rarely move her, and with the addition of her tail it becomes nearly impossible to throw her off balance.
Ae also uses this to her advantage when she goes on the offensive. The density of her muscles is far beyond what should be possible for any normal person. This translates into strikes which are much more powerful. Her weight is also applied offensively: not only are attacks from above more powerful but any attack made by her carries an immense amount of momentum. When these factors are coupled with her durability it results in attacks which are powerful, heavy, and which won’t break due to the force of impact. In essence her entire body is transformed into a weapon.
Dense muscles also provide Sloth with an incredible amount of explosive power. Despite her weight Ae can send herself soaring into the air. She can close short distances at speeds rivaling a flash step simply due to the power packed within her legs. Her strikes are also unleashed with unparalleled agility thanks to the stored energy within her muscles. When it comes to close combat she is built like a tank: strikes are shrugged off, close foes are reached quickly, and attacks capable of destroying her opponent’s bodies are delivered at a velocity and with enough momentum to be considered nearly unstoppable.
Not all is perfect with this form however. Her speed only helps in very close ranges: if she cannot catch up to her opponent within the first few seconds then she will be left behind in their dust. Every strike consumes more energy, and moving quickly over great distances becomes impossible due to this and due to her weight. The momentum behind both her movements and her strikes can also be problematic: when she goes all out she finds it nearly impossible to stop herself until all of the explosive energy behind whatever it is she is doing has been consumed. To fight effectively she must pick her attacks at just the right moment, and so generally during combat much of her time is spent taking hits as she waits for that one perfect opportunity to end the fight.
V. Demon Heritage» Demon Natural Abilities:Affinity for Hell:
Demons like Ae are particularly potent when they are in Hell. Simply having the presence of Hell on the battlefield, even if they are not actually within Hell itself, is typically enough to substantially bolster their power, generally by a factor of five. With prolonged exposure even an increase in tier for the duration of the battle is possible, all thanks to the hellish energy latent within the areas, upon which Demons thrive. Inherent and magical abilities are also improved in this way. However Ae is no ordinary Demon. As a Rakshasa she has been assigned rule over a specific level within Hell, and it is here where she truly reigns supreme. The effects of her affinity towards Hell are doubled while she is within her own realm, making her a true master of her home.Body Manipulation:
Discovered during the earliest days of her life was Ae’s ability to manipulate her body. As with any Demon she able to drastically change any part of herself: changing the color of her skin, stretching her limbs, shapeshifting into different people, even detaching or generating or fusing body parts together are all within the realm of her power. Offensively it can be used to fling body parts at her foes which contain acidic blood or which heat up to intense temperatures. Defensively it can be used to create armor in order to increase her chances of survival against physical attacks, such as a stab or a cleave. Of course she will generally just use this to look differently, such as in the case of disguising herself for infiltration amongst Humans or to seduce someone, should she manage to care enough about anyone for such a thing.Curse Effect:
Like any good Demon Ae can bestow curses upon both people and areas. This can be used to instill illness, or fear, or insanity, or madness, or even feelings of lust into targets. On an area she can set traps, such as a curse which makes those entering the space violently spew out blood, or one which causes malfunctions within the powers they might use, or even a region filled with a toxic airborne poison. Of course Sloth typically will use this in order to instill Apathy into a foe, or to create a zone which absorbs energy from others. Sometimes she might fill an area with a sleeping gas.Sacrificing Incantation:
While she rarely uses this Ae can use sacrifices to her benefits. Small scale sacrifices include things like the spilling of blood, while larger ones might involve the slaughter of many innocent victims. Such things provide power to the Demon which uses them, but they can also be used in order to gain intelligence, a more powerful mind, to unlock hidden talents, or even bestow untold riches upon the user. Being the Rakshasa of Apathy means that Ae rarely has any use for this sort of thing, especially when she can just as easily gain her power with some good old fashioned sleeping.» Akuma Kyodo:
As a Demon Ae was born with the full body seal referred to as Akuma Kyodo. This is essentially an extra layer of defense, much like an Arrancar’s Hierro, and when activated it will effectively double her general defenses. Unlike an Arrancar’s Hierro, however, this technique does not stop with simply protecting her from brute force attacks. Magic, spiritual attacks, extreme environments, poisons, toxins, and even her mental state all become fortified by this ability. Just about anything offensive thrown her way can be resisted while this is activated. Due to her mastery level of Za Koa she is able to sustain this defense for ten posts
once it is activated, with a three post
cooldown following its end.» Shadow Movement:
Ae’s Demon heritage grants her access to Shadow Movement, which is in essence an answer to a Shinigami’s Hoho. With it she is able to travel very far distances within an instant, especially useful for someone with her lack of marathon speed. On top of this Ae is able to move with ease between various shadows within a realm, jumping from one to another with little issue. While within an area of darkness or shadows her skills within the Shadow Movement abilities are doubled in strength. With enough focus she could even use shadows linked between different realms and worlds to hop from one to another, although this would be considerably more draining.Shadow Burst:
A branch ability to Shadow Movement, Shadow Burst is essentially a sudden and temporary boost in speed, effectively doubling it until the power has run its course. Beyond this Shadow Burst can also be used to speed up the velocity of attacks and even reaction times. It can be combined with The Art of Demon Magic in order to speed up those specific abilities used or mixed with Za Kao to consume an area more quickly. Essentially it is used as a burst of speed which is applied both to Ae and to abilities she uses whilst under its influence. Due to her mastery level of Shadow Movement Ae can sustain this burst for three posts
once it is activated, with a three post
cooldown following its end.
Force Speed: A branch ability to Shadow Burst, Force Speed is an ability which seeks to effect the area around Ae when it is activated. It can be used to increase the velocity of objects, increase her allies’ movement speed, and even increase the force of wind surrounding her during movements for a boost in damage potential.
((UNLOCKED AT SHADOW MOVEMENT ADVANCED))
Phase Speed: The final branch ability to Shadow Burst, Phase Speed is an ability in which Ae generates an insane amount of Force Speed around her body, enough to allow her to essentially phase through solid and, at times, spiritual objects. Even attacks can be phased through, provided they are weaker than she is. With enough focus this can be used to slip through dimensional warps or even create temporary wormholes during combat.
((UNLOCKED AT SHADOW MOVEMENT GRAND MASTER))» The Art of Demon Magic:
Being a Demon means Ae has access to The Art of Demon Magic, which is essentially a Demon’s version of Kido, although it does of course have its differences. First off, unlike Kido this form actually works like one might expect magic to work. That is to say that the applications are much wider in scope. Secondly, using it is different than Kido. This type of magic can be used by applying Za Koa, however thanks to the various seals grafted upon a Demon’s body from birth the application of Za Koa isn’t even required to use this type of magic. Instead the effect is simply amplified by twice its normal strength with the combination of collected energy and gathered Za Koa. There is also a downside not shared with Kido: improper use of this magic, that is trying to use it without the proper resources, power, sacrifices, and so forth, will result in a powerful physical backlash, which can wound or even kill the user. Ae has yet to really explore this ability, at least within the physical realm.» Za Koa - The Core of Demon Magic:
Within a negative realm created thousands of years ago resides a massive void of boiling hot red energy, a fusion of Death, the being called Touketsu, the souls of all slain Demons from the realm’s creation, and that energy donated through a series of satanic spells and rituals. Called Za Koa, this place fuels many of a Demon’s powers, which draw from the realm as their source. Thanks to her Demon heritage Ae has access to this same well of power, which she uses to power certain abilities ingrained within her.Black Inferno Blast:
By mixing energy from Za Koa, her blood, and a touch of darkness Ae is able to unleash the Black Inferno Blast. Much like an Arrancar’s Cero it will detonate in a black explosion, and again like their Cero it can be broken down into a Bala type attack. However this is where the similarities end. Those caught within the blast of this attack will find an intense heat rippling through their flesh, as if they were set alight. In actuality their body is being invaded by a rush of parasites and the magic that goes into the attack, which seeks to drain incredible amounts of energy from their body. Over the next five posts

for an indirect hit, they will become steadily drained of their energy and their body weakened and slowed. It could even prove fatal if they don’t have enough life energy to sustain the drain. This is one Demon ability which Ae is readily prepared to use, as it helps her to drain her foe’s energy.Kage Chokyo-shi:
This is an ability Demons use in order to cross dimensions, although it can be tailored for use during a battle. By channeling Za Koa’s energy throughout the various seals within her body and by mixing that with Shadow Movement Ae could potentially create dimensional holes scattered throughout the battlefield. With these she could move from place to place with ease. Offensively this could be used to deliver sudden surprise attacks, while defensively it could be used to absorb blasts or to rend one in two by creating a dimensional portal in the center of her enemy’s assault. While potentially draining this is one ability which helps to close certain gaps within Ae’s fighting style.Za Koa’s Influence:
When Ae really needs to create an advantage in a fight she can always call upon Za Koa to get the job done. By drawing forth upon the great well of energy Sloth can spread its influence into the realm she currently inhabits, covering an area of the battlefield with evil power. Within this tainted region all of her power, that is to say, all of her stats, are doubled if the encroaching influence is not sealed away or contained with magic. Of course this boost is triple for a Master of Za Koa and quadrupled for a Grand Master. This area can also be manipulated, much like what Ae does within her layer of Hell. Light can be dimmed to create darkness, toxins can be created within the air to wear down her opponents, acid rained down to burn them, and so forth. This is a power which Ae is quite comfortable with using, as it provides her with advantages and, thusly, a faster end to whatever fight she partakes of.Knowledge of Environment:
When Za Koa’s Influence is spread throughout the battlefield Ae gains nearly complete knowledge of that area. Hidden barriers, seals, and spiritual beings are all revealed to her, and on a Master level even the most hidden of things, such as what a Shinigami’s Zanpakutō does, or even what its spirit is, can be discerned. At this level an opponent’s energy reserves and any unusual traits within their body, such as abnormal defenses or weaknesses, can be identified. This is a very important ability within Sloth’s arsenal, as it allows her to better control the flow of combat, certainly a useful thing when one relies heavily upon counter attacks. Reiatsu Drain:
Within an area dominated by Za Koa’s Influence Ae can actively constrain the flow of Reishi and reiatsu, thus weakening those foes which rely upon such things. If enough of a draining effect is enforced this can result in weakening those foes, canceling out and overpowering their attacks, and even controlling the reiatsu itself for those who are advanced enough. On top of this Ae is able to use the collected energy for her own means: unlike her own draining attacks this does not simply affect her reserves, but seeks to make her even more powerful. If enough reiatsu is drained away she can temporarily increase her power, potentially up to an entire tier if she is at a Master level, although only if enough power is consumed to warrant it. This boost lasts for three threads
as she is a Master of Za Koa. Beyond simply advancing her in a tier this extra power can be focused in a multitude of ways, from increasing her attack speed or power to increasing the potency of her magic or the durability of her body. Really there are a lot of uses, and this goes hand in hand with many of her other attacks, so it is something she will readily use within any engagements which might last for some time.
VI. Rakshasa Heritage» Absolute Demon Psychology:
As a Demon and a Rakshasa Ae seems to suffer around Angels, although they are perhaps worse off than she is in these situations. Like any creature of shared blood Sloth is highly prone to purification based spells and attacks, although the reverse also stands to reason. Normally Demons will also grow sick or be filled with a vast array of emotions when near an Angel, and the Angel will generally suffer the same. However it is in these regards which Ae differs. Emotions and feelings, even sickness and similar such things are very easily cast aside by the Rakshasa of Apathy. It is for this reason that she has earned the title of Angel’s Bane: while their minds are flayed by her presence Ae is able to stay calm, focused, and relatively intact when around them, making her the perfect candidate within Hell to dispose of such creatures.» Rakshasa Abilities: Astiva Ki Barhata – Edge of Existence:
This ability is both the Demon equivalent to Shadow Movement and the Shinigami’s equivalent to Shunpo, only allows Ae the ability to travel twice the distance and is an instant teleportation. With this she is able to switch between Hell, Demon World, Soul Society, and Earth in milliseconds. It works by first illuminating the Rakshasa’s body in a dark crimson tone. Immediately following this their bodies collapse inwards, both from the top and the bottom, meeting in the center, at which time they have been transported into an external dimension which holds strings to whichever other realm they wish to venture to. Of course a Rakshasa’s skill level in this will determine how precisely they can teleport and what sort of strain is placed upon the body. Unfortunately thanks to her Sleep Walker ability Ae will, at times, randomly engage this ability while slumbering. If the gates to her realm are not closed then she will end up teleporting somewhere completely random, which might result in a rather rude awakening.Demon Magic:
Just as a Demon is able to use Demon Magic so too can a Rakshasa. For the most part it is similar, although there is one major difference: while within their personal layer of Hell a Rakshasa’s Demon magic is far superior, at least doubly powerful. For those Rakshasa who can use Death Energy this principle also applies, although Ae has yet to meet this person.Reality Morphing:
As the ruler of the 500th layer of Hell Ae has complete command over her dominion. At will she can change it, both on a minor and a major scale, and everything in between. This doesn’t simply apply to its appearance either: size, composition, temperature, everything can be changed. She is, in essence, a Goddess within her home. For this reason alone it would be unwise to take the fight to Ae within her home, as the battlefield can be molded and shaped to her advantage, and it can even be used against her opponents with direct assaults. Whilst in her home Ae also has complete knowledge of her surroundings, as she notices all that transpires within the 500th level.
VII. Sin of Sloth
Ae is the Rakshasa of Sloth, the very embodiment of this sin. She was born of it, molded by it, shaped by it, and made stronger through it. Every day she embraces it, and within every facet of her life it flows, altering everything from her personality to her actions and even to her powers. But then, what is Sloth really? Only by understanding this can one gain a grasp upon what sort of creature Ae is.
The sin of Sloth is most commonly associated with laziness and sleeping. In this way it could also be expanded into the idea of exhaustion and rest. And while this is all true, and all of this can be found within Ae and her set of powers, this is only part of what makes up Sloth. Perhaps the most dangerous aspect of Sloth is Apathy. Apathy, or rather a lack of concern and interest, leads to indifference, lethargy, and languor.
Indifference is a powerful tool, able to be utilized both offensively and defensively. Offensively Ae uses this to tear asunder her opponent’s feelings and concerns. With no will to fight her opponents fall away, leaving her victorious. Allies stop caring for each other and her foes stop caring for themselves. Defensively this indifference, which she focuses upon herself, allows Ae to cast away those intruding thoughts and feelings which might distract or harm her. Even pain and, to some extents, exhaustion are ignored.
Lethargy can be fatal in the middle of a fight. Every warrior requires energy. Ae is no exception to this rule, and in fact it applies to her even more than it does to others. Energy is taken from her foes, drained away into the void or into Ae’s body to fuel her own needs. Enthusiasm and hope are both lost within a sea of apathy. Fatigue and exhaustion become all her opponents know.Passive: » Apathy Embraced:
Ae has fully embraced the idea of Apathy, both in mind and body. On a mental level she is able to shut out feelings, emotions, and even things which might affect her mind. Damage, even if it does register with her, is easily cast aside. The madness that typically infects a Demon’s mind whilst in the presence of an Angel doesn’t apply to her, because those feelings too can be simply shrugged off. Her mind is also heavily fortified against mental intrusions, simply because she is able to cast aside any errant feelings or thoughts. To a certain extent this full embrace of Apathy also affects her body. Attacks made by those of a low enough tier when compared to her power, that is currently those of tier three or below
, can be simply shrugged off as even her body starts not to care for such things. Poison and diseases are also ignored by her body, which simply incorporates them freely into everything else. Finally, those who engage in Slothful behavior around Ae only seek to empower her further. Every shred of apathy, even taking a break during a fight all fuel her power.» Beauty Sleep:
Sleep makes Ae stronger. She is, after all, the embodiment of Sloth. But there are other good reasons for her to slumber. For instance, while everyone does require rest to recover from their wounds and exhaustion, Ae accomplishes both at a vastly improved rate. Slumbering also helps to keep her body young and fit. For Ae sleeping even helps to reverse the effects of aging.» Dreamscape:
Ae spends much of her time sleeping. When most people sleep they dream, however it is different for Sloth. Sleeping sends her into a realm within her mind. Within this realm lies a vast library, which contains all of her memories, ideas, thoughts, and even her abilities and forms. Every detail of Ae can be studied here, down to the very deepest level, and she can often be found doing just that as a way to improve and entertain herself. Others can also be invited here, free to relax and even speak to her, for within this realm she only needs to think about forming words.» Paralyzing Fluids:
Sloth’s bodily fluids are not like any regular person’s. They are, in fact, an incredibly potent paralyzing poison tailored to make people shut up and simply rest. Simply making skin contact is enough to numb it, and should it be ingested or injected then the effects will be immediately felt. Limbs will tense and freeze up. Organs might even begin to fail. She can, at will, reduce the potency if she so desires, although typically she doesn’t care enough to do such a thing. This poison can also be produced from within her fangs, her claws, and even through the tip of her tail. Of course with an Advanced level durability
or a Master level willpower
those inflicted by the poison can overcome it with some focus.» Peaceful Slumber:
In many ways Ae is not a peaceful creature, nor is she one which a person might normally be inclined to sleep near. However Sloth is unique in that she produces a constant aura of calming blissful tiredness. This is only minimally effective towards those awake, and especially towards those who would seek to do her harm. The primary application of this unique ability is to essentially provide a more comfortable slumber for those who are already asleep. It becomes much more difficult to wake up, even by force, as those nearby who slumber remain within a constant state of bliss.» Sleep Walker:
Sloth has a tendency to work on things while she sleeps. Normally this translates to training as she ventures into her Dreamscape in order to study and run simulations for improving herself. However she will, at times, also partake of normal physical activities outside of her mind, even whilst within the deepest of slumbering states. To a certain extent she can protect herself while this occurs, as her body is able to react on instinct towards those who attack her. Sometimes during a fight she will even use this to her advantage. Foes are lured in by her sleeping form and, when they attack, Ae responds immediately with a powerful counter attack. Sometimes she may even wake up for just a brief instant in order to see the effectiveness of her counter strike, and then having surveyed the situation she might go right back to sleep. Of course this does have one big flaw when used in combat: if her counter attacks are countered swiftly enough then Ae will have little to no time to respond to her opponent.» Sleepy Breath:
Ae’s breath is very unusual. No matter how warm she is her breath always leaves her mouth as a puff of chilled air. This is perhaps due to her regular sleeping conditions, a result of her body constantly trying to replicate those conditions in order to put her to sleep, which would explain why she can simply fall asleep with ease, even in dangerous situations. Those who take in this breath will quickly find that it is a very potent sleeping gas. Still, it would require getting really close for this to actually do anything, and even then it might take some prolonged exposure.Defensive: » Natural Blanket:
A good deal of power rests within Sloth’s wings, and even more can be redirected into them if need be. When this happens she will extend them outwards, shielding the rest of her body with one, two, or even both sets of wings if need be. If she is really lazy, and she often is, Ae will simply wrap them around her form like a cocoon, both to protect herself and to make herself more comfortable, for her wings are soft and smooth like velvety silk, and often used as a blanket when she doesn’t have one around. And if these wings are somehow damaged she can always repair them with a quick nap, although this is incredibly rare considering their immense durability. Still, she has to be careful, for if her wings are damaged enough then she will not be able to take flight until they are repaired again.Offensive: » Draining Yawn:
Like any other person Sloth will yawn when she is tired, or when she wakes up. However she can also do so at will. Not only is it annoying, as it will often times cause her opponents to also yawn, but it can also be dangerous. Ae’s yawns are deep and powerful, sucking in a great deal of air around her. This can even draw in people who are close enough. Of course people and air aren’t the only things she draws in: energy too is captured, even sucked out of things or people which produce it. This will both fuel her and sap away at her opponent’s energy reserves, tiring them out while she is able to continue fighting for longer. The area targeted is a wide cone shaped region in front of her, with a maximum range of five meters
. Like any good yawn it does take a little bit of time before another can be used, and so whenever she does use this ability there is a three post
cooling down period. Using it too much might actually begin to waken her up as well, and so she can only use this a maximum of eight times
within any thread before she beings eating into her own energy reserves to use it, thus making it pointless.» Sleepy Cloud ((LAYER ONLY)):
This is the offensive equivalent of Sleepy Breath. Excess energy is infused with the air held within her lungs, and then with a powerful exhale it is expelled. What emerges is a concentrated blast of frigid sleeping gas, with temperatures running around -200 degrees F. Skin can freeze instantly, although completely freezing an opponent’s body through and through would require some prolonged exposure. If the gas expelled from her body is inhaled then those inhaling it might find themselves quickly becoming groggy and slowed, even plunged into sleep with prolonged exposure. When she unleashes this attack it is in the form of a thin cone shaped region in front of her, with a maximum range of ten meters
. There is a three post
cooling down period before she is able to use this again, and she can utilize it up to ten times
within a thread before she starts to eat into her cooling energy reserves, which strives to keep her body at a comfortable temperature.Enhancement: » Wake Up!:
Sloth’s domain also contains apathy, and so it should come as no surprise to anyone that she would be able to reverse it. With a simple powerful slap of her hand Sloth can reverse the effects of apathy and lethargy upon a person’s mind and body. Feelings of excitement and enthusiasm will flood those who have been hit with this. Their body, excited just the same, will work in an overdrive mode in order to produce more energy, thus providing the target with a sudden burst of it.
This is great for bolstering a worn down ally to the point of fighting, but it does have its drawbacks, which Ae will also use to her advantage in an offensive aspect against her foes. By forcing her opponent to produce more energy Ae can subsequently drain more from their body, thus further fueling her own needs at their expense. And what might that expense be? Through the process of overdriving itself to produce more energy the body also wears itself down and, when used in succession, will begin to tear itself apart. Enough hits of this will begin to lower the target’s durability, and when that brief burst of energy is used up they will feel even more exhausted than before. Ae especially enjoys using this whilst in her state of Peppy Rely, as it further fuels her body whilst allowing her to continue playing with her foe.Other: » Drag to Hell:
Hell is Sloth’s proper home. It is where she lives and sleeps, and it is here that she is at her most powerful. Unfortunately not every fight will take place within her home, as few people desire visiting Hell. Most fights will take place outside of her realm and it is nearly impossible for Ae to convince others to stop and move the fight’s location to where she is most suited. She could grab a hold of her opponent, and drag them back home with one of her fabulous methods of transportation, but this is an exhausting and slow endeavor, as her foes will undoubtedly struggle and she will need to keep them held whilst going through multiple hurdles. Thankfully she has a solution for this.
By charging her energy into the area around herself Ae can create a direct connection to her home within the 500th layer of Hell. More energy still is pumped into the palm of her hand. Muscles are strengthened. Once the connection has been fully established all Ae needs to do is slam her hand into the ground, or rather into the spread energy if she isn’t on the ground, delivering enough force and an energy catalyst which ignites the power charged into the area surrounding her. Instantly this region becomes torn from its place in whatever world it resides, dropped a couple of seconds later right into the center of her realm. While taxing this ability ultimately saves on energy use, as she isn’t required to keep up a Demonic influence within the area, nor is she required to constantly hold onto an opponent while making her way back home. Besides, once she is home that lost energy will not matter, as her realm in Hell will very quickly give her the edge in combat. While typically used to capture a foe this can also be used as a quick and easy way to return home for sleeping, or as a method of retreat. This move affects an area of twenty meters
in every direction from the center of her body.» Nap Time ((CANNOT BE USED WITH DAVI TVACA)):
Sloth has always found the greatest level of comfort and power whilst sleeping. Not only does it allow her mind to be occupied by the great library held within, but it also helps her body immensely. When she sleeps her energy is regained rapidly and drawn from the air around her in order to bolster these gains. More importantly, her wounds are healed almost instantaneously while she slumbers. During combat this can be of great use: not only is she able to heal her wounds but in the process she will also recover some of her lost energy. All it requires her to do is sleep, and she is very good at doing that. In fact she is able to fall asleep instantly and at will, even whilst suffering horrible wounds or in the middle of an opponent’s attack. Of course this does leave her quite exposed, especially to ranged attacks as she is unable to counter them, but the rate at which she recovers from her wounds while in this state will typically allow her to survive said attacks. Still, it does give her opponents a moment of respite, and this time might also be used to rest up or to prepare an even more powerful attack, which is certainly not good for Sloth. With this ability active Sloth is able to heal any bruises or small cuts and wounds almost instantly, and at most within a few seconds. Limbs cut off, if placed onto their respective stumps, can be repaired within the same amount of time, although lost limbs which require regrowing can take anywhere between one to ten minutes for the larger ones. The same goes for organs. Even a couple of fatal wounds can be resisted through this method of healing, however anything beyond this will end up slaying her, and so she will typically try to avoid a second one before the third has a chance to deal her a death blow. Decapitation will also end her instantly, unless of course the head remains upon the neck, or is placed there within a couple of seconds, at which point it might have enough time to secure itself.» Service On Demand:
Ae does not like moving around, especially when she doesn’t need to. Nor does she enjoy things like chores, or brushing her hair, or any number of exhausting activities. Thankfully she has an adoring little servant to do all of this work for her! Unfortunately Ai is typically left back at home, and normally this means that she would need to go through the exhausting process of returning home for her, or contacting her, both of which results in her waiting. Instead of going through these troubles Ae will create a connection to her Hell Beast. Then, with the snap of her fingers Ae’s little servant will be summoned right at her side, ready to do whatever it is she desires! It is a neat little trick created in order to allow her to indulge in the utmost laziness.

THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
The Tainted Skin of Sloth
VIII. The Dāgī Tvacā – Tainted Skin» Dāgī Tvacā Name: Peppy Rely
The name of Sloth’s Dagi Tvaca is, oddly enough, Peppy Rely. As is the nature of Sloth, this is the lazy abbreviation which she decided upon for the true name of this form: Perpetual Hyper Release. While others might find fancy names to place upon their forms Sloth generally sticks to things that are short, sweet, and to the point. Generally when one thinks about Apathy they aren’t really thinking of the word ‘hyper’, but in this state Ae’s apathy extends to the very nature of apathy itself. Everything from her body to her mind becomes charged with energy, thus making her much more hyper and excited than she normally would be.» Dāgī Tvacā Theme Song: (Clicky!)» Dāgī Tvacā Appearance:
Ae’s Dagi Tvaca is sealed within her wings. Not only are they denser than the rest of her body, but they also hold far more power. This makes sense considering how much strength is required to actually lift Sloth into the air, especially if the need to move quickly arises. It is also due to this concentrated power that Sloth uses them as a defensive mechanism, shielding herself when need be from attacks, and on some occasions she may even lash out with them offensively. By reaching back and tearing her wings from her body Ae unleashes her Peppy Rely, breaking the natural seal held upon her typically conserved power. » Dāgī Tvacā Release Appearance Written:
Immediately following the removal of her wings is a brilliant flash of pink light. Magenta energy swirls out from the open spots on her back, covering her entire body for a second before it shatters into oblivion, leaving Ae changed into her Peppy Rely. The changes in her appearance, like the changes in her power, are extensive.
Her bodily changes are generally the first things to be noticed. The short horns which sprout from her head are now longer and are pointed upwards to be used as a goring weapon. Their color also shifts into a dark violet red shade, now uniform in its color and composed of sleek shiny scales. Both her arms up to the shoulders and her legs right up to above her knees become covered with hardened scales, the tips of her fingers and toes now properly resembling large claws. Although these scales resemble black armor with silver trimmings this armoring is flexible in most places so as not to hinder her movements. Ae’s tail also becomes considerably longer, stretching out to five meters in length. It too becomes armored, resembling a segmented bladed weapon with the same coloring as her armored limbs. Physical wings are replaced by larger magenta forms comprised entirely of her energy. Their composition resembles glass with veins and edges a brighter shade of pink, however they are still very flexible and incredibly durable. Her secondary set of wings, typically hidden when they aren’t needed, are also exposed from her lower back, only these are solid and the scales covering them are on a microscopic level, allowing them to be sleek and of a uniform dark purple color. Ae’s hair also shifts to a darker magenta color, while her eyes lighten into a shade of icy blue with star shaped pupils which are pure white like snow.
Ae’s clothes also change. Instead of a dress her body is clad in a skin-tight covering which is considerably more revealing. Much of it resembles her arms and legs with black stretchy material and silver trimmings, although in places are magenta colorings, such as the bottom edge trim. Four magenta bows hold wide ribbons of fabric to her sides and rear, resembling an open faced skirt. Finally a black collar rests around her neck, holding in the front an oddly shaped winged bow. This outfit is representative of her new form. Like her new persona it is open, exciting, and designed for quick and easy movements.
When this form is used alongside her Tukara Saitana the changes in appearance are considerably less noticeable, although the process remains the same. Just like in her normal form it requires the removal of her wings, and just like in her normal form there follows a flash of light and a brief swirling orb of energy which scatters to the wind. Her wings are replaced by pure energy, the coloring of which is similar, although their overall design remains unchanged. Ae’s hair also changes to a magenta color. Beyond this however there are no further changes, save for the change in her power and the abilities she is able to use.» Dāgī Tvacā Appearance Image:Full Size Here» Dāgī Tvacā Persona:Euphoric:
By unleashing this form Ae reaches her own personal nirvana. Apathy is embraced at such a level that she becomes apathetic towards the very feelings of apathy itself. The holds normally placed upon her body by apathy are ignored. With an extreme burst of energy Ae’s mind becomes excited and her body invigorated. Despite this she continues to fully embrace Sloth thanks to her apathy, only now she gets to enjoy it on a level which keeps her actively engaged. Instead of slumbering she awakens, and instead of feeling nothing she feels all the blissful peaceful orgasmic emotions that come from not caring. Her mind and body become liberated from everything, and in a sense she reaches her own personal heaven.Excited:
No longer is Ae held back by exhaustion, or laziness, or even apathy for feelings. When Peppy Rely is activated nothing matters to Sloth or her form, and all the energy which would normally be conserved to keep her awake is unleashed. Her body becomes invigorated and super charged. Even her state of mind is altered: as energy freely flows throughout her body Ae’s personality changes, acclimating itself to the exciting force which normally would be suppressed. She becomes excited at just about everything, like a hyper child in a realm crafted entirely of candy and talking everything. It would be wrong however to mistake this for her caring for anything, as just the opposite remains true. Instead she becomes guided and steered around by her hyperactive mind, seeking to explore and to ruthlessly interact with the world for no other reason than to do so.Loud:
Ae still cannot speak, although that doesn’t mean that she needs to remain quiet. Just the opposite occurs as a way to unleash more of her pent up energy. She will consistently roar, not so much as a response to anything although at times this does become the case. Of course considering what happens when she roars within this form it can become quite dangerous for those around her, but then at this point she will find it all but impossible to care about such things.Playful:
While normally reserved and calm and lazy Ae will, within this form, become quite playful. As energy courses through her veins and euphoria grips her mind Sloth seeks to enjoy herself, and this will often come at the expense of those around her. Like an energetic cat Ae will seek not to end the fight quickly, instead toying with her foes as she intends upon making the fight last for as long as possible. It is even possible to engage her in games while she is in this form, however one must work hard to keep her attention as she tends not to stop doing things.Reckless:
This is a very reckless form for Ae to take. It eats heavily into the energy she normally reserves for simple tasks, and if she cannot defeat her opponent by the time this wears out then she will generally become helpless as she is forced into a nap time. Due to her levels of energy and excitement it also becomes impossible for her to sleep while taking this form, which vastly limits her ability to regenerate from wounds sustained. Her playful and excited nature also makes things very dangerous for her. Instead of simply ending the fight she will prolong it, playing with her foes until their bodies can no longer handle it. While her ruthlessness might help somewhat to alleviate this problem it also results in her striking at those who would normally be allied to her. Finally, with an abundance of apathy Ae stops caring about her own body, not caring how badly it gets injured or if an attack might maul her. Everything is assaulted head on and with no tactical thought.Ruthless:
Much like her normal self Ae remains aggressive, although it is perhaps a bit different while in this form. Her aggression no longer exerts itself to acquire or achieve something. That is, it is no longer focused in one direction. Instead it is as simple as her not holding back. With apathy towards everything Ae loses all desire to pull back her punches, and so she becomes quite ruthless. Nobody and nothing is spared in her wake as she seeks to simply enjoy the benefits of her new form, losing herself within it. No longer can she discern between friend and foe as everything becomes a target of her aggression.THE POWER OF DAGI TVACA
While fully embracing the concept of Sloth Ae is subsequently released from its holds. In this form she opens up to the use of energy and its effects upon her body. A good deal of her powers revolve around this concept, while others focus upon taking in even more energy in an attempt to perpetually fuel the euphoric feelings which drive her forward. On top of this is an ability which seeks not to increase her own energy but instead the energy of her foes, thus allowing them to continue to play with her even longer! However this form isn’t perfect, as it forgoes defenses and durability in exchange for euphoric enjoyment and excitement.Passive: » Euphoric Apathy:
By fully embracing a state of euphoric apathy Ae becomes completely numb towards everything. Pain, feelings, ideas, even thoughts go out the window as she rides the wave of pure blissful excitement which follows. Instead of thinking she simply does things and goes with the flow. Controlling her through emotions, feelings, senses, or mental prowess becomes all but impossible. And while many of her attacks will come head on she does become otherwise unpredictable, seeking only to enjoy her current state of mind. In essence pain will not slow her down and most mental afflictions simply cannot break through her euphoria.» Heavy With Sin:
As with her other form Ae becomes more deeply entrenched within the sin of Sloth. With the release of her inner power comes a release of the barriers which restrict her slumbering titan self. Her weight increases by a factor of ten while her body grows denser still. When activated normally this will increase her weight to one hundred tons, however when activated in combination with her Tukara Saitana this will increase her weight to two thousand tons. To handle the extra weight comes an increase in strength. While embracing her Peppy Rely Ae grows stronger and harder to break, her movements carry great momentum and impact, although all the disadvantages of her increased weight also subsequently grow. In essence she gains a 150% boost to both her durability and her strength.» Tiring Presence:
In this form Ae’s body requires a constant source of energy, otherwise it would simply sputter and die out within seconds. To fuel this need Sloth draws energy inwards from her surroundings. Creatures which hold their own energy, or produce their own energy, find themselves growing physically and mentally tired around her. Plant life starts to die off, smaller animals perish, and the air itself grows colder as the latent energy within it is drawn in towards the Rakshasa. Water will freeze and wind dissipates, even light is captured as the area around her grows dim. Objects in motion which near her body will slow down as even the energy which forces them forwards is sapped. Torpor sets in, both within those creatures affected and the physical environment surrounding her, thus creating more apathy, and this too is fed upon naturally by Sloth, which only results in more fuel for her new form. The only thing this doesn't affect are spiritually inclined creatures.
In effect, everything which nears Ae in this form becomes slowed and drained of its energy, including spiritual powers and the environment itself. Even the mind is affected, as all feelings are drained, leaving creatures filled only with apathy. The only one unaffected by this is Sloth itself. While the initial effects can be felt within fifty meters
of Ae’s body its potency grows the closer something gets to her.Offensive: » Hyper Roar:
While normally quiet Ae in this form is able to let loose. Emerging from her mouth are incredibly loud and terrifying roars which easily tear the courage from any normal creature. Still, this does not only contain a fear effect. Each blast of air from her lungs is powerful enough to obliterate concrete buildings, emitted with enough sonic force to rip apart a person’s organs if they are caught within it at close range. From a distance it might sound like thunder, and generally it can be heard from many, many miles away. The devastating effect it has is focused within a wide cone shaped area in front of her, and while it is potentially destructive up to one hundred meters
away the sonic force which is able to destroy organs is only really felt within five meters
from her mouth.» Touch of Euphoria:
Ae is not the only one able to feel the euphoria which floods her mind. She is more than happy to spread the feelings to others. When exerted into the physical realm this euphoric feeling takes the shape of an icy blue flame, somewhat resembling the change of color within her eyes. Typically it will be generated by her claws, either on her feet or hands, but it can also be generated by her teeth, horns, tail, or even her wings. Foes that are struck by this empowered blow will immediately begin to suffer its effects. An incredible amount of apathy, euphoric for Ae, will be introduced into her victim’s body and mind. With minds filled to the brim with apathy her foe’s thoughts will become sluggish, and they will begin to become uncaring and unfeeling to everything. The effects also become readily noticeable within their bodies, which will slow down by up to an entire tier.Enhancement:» Hyper Engine:
The signature move of Peppy Rely is the Hyper Engine. When she is feeling especially enthusiastic Ae can activate this, utterly and completely embracing her current mindset. By fully embracing the energy which courses through her body Sloth is able to release all barriers which hold it in, thus allowing her to more freely access it. Body and mind alike become super charged. Reaction time increases, strength increases, the potency of her abilities increase, but most of all her speed increases. A constant cloud of super-heated steam bursts from her mouth, ears, nose, and every pore within her body. The temperature near her body increases up to 600 degrees F. This ability eats away her energy quickly. More than that, it eats away at her body which tears itself apart on a microscopic level as it overworks itself and consumes itself for more energy still. Whilst in affect her durability also lowers as a result. At her current tier Ae is able to sustain this form for four posts
, after which her wings regrow, her body reverts out of Peppy Rely and back to its former form, and she immediately enters into sleep as her body seeks to repair the damage done to it. It will require at least five posts
of sleeping before its durability returns to normal levels. In essence this ability bolsters the potency of her abilities, her speed, and her strength by 150%, however it will halve her durability, which will regain 10% of that lost amount for every post she rests until it is back up to its full normal amount.

THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
The Hell Beast of Sloth
IX. Naraka Jānavara – The Hell Beast» Naraka Jānavara Name: Ai
Ai is a practical name which suits Ae’s Hell Beast perfectly. First off it has a proper meaning. It stands for love, affection, or indigo. While Ai is not indigo in color Sloth is quite appeased by the color purple, for it calms and soothes her, and so the name also is pleasing. More than this however is the meaning of love and affection, as both are things which Ai exhibits towards her mistress. Often times she can be found cuddling up to the slightly shorter Rakshasa. Beyond this the name Ai is very familiar to her, because it is almost exactly like her own. This combined with its shortness makes it easy to say, and so for the sake of laziness Ae chose this name for her little pet.» Naraka Jānavara Age: Generally appears around 17. Real age is 215.
For a good majority of the time Ai is kept in her original form, and so her apparent age rarely changes. Her real age is 215 years, all of which have been spent at her mistress’ side.» Naraka Jānavara Gender: Female
This was a simple choice to make. When she was created Ae chose the form of a female, and so the same was done for her servant. Not only was the choice made more easily but the creation as well, as she’d already done it once. Still, if need be or so desired Ae can have this changed.» Naraka Jānavara Occupation: Servant Hell Beast to the Rakshasa of Sloth
Ai is a servant to Ae, her creator and the one who she worships. Not only has she been gifted with a piece of her mistress but she has also been tasked with taking care of the 500th level of Hell. While Ae technically is the one in command generally it will be Ai who takes care of anything that needs to be done, simply so that Sloth can continue resting. For this reason she has also been granted with certain abilities which only Ae would normally have, although generally to a lesser degree. She also takes care of everything Sloth needs or desires, whether it be food, affection, cleaning, or otherwise.» Naraka Jānavara Residence: Hell – Level 500
Like Sloth the Hell Beast also resides within the 500th level of Hell. She will generally be kept here for safe keeping, both because she is not built completely for combat and because she acts as a fall back resurrection point should Ae fall in combat. Besides, it is generally Ai who tends to the realm anyways, so why not keep her there? Even if she needed to Ae could simply summon her with the snap of her fingers, or send her back the same way.» Naraka Jānavara Appearance Written:
When in her original form Ai stands at roughly five and a half feet tall, fairly normal for a Human and half a foot taller than her creator. Her chest, though remaining small at between an A and a B cup, is still larger than Sloth’s, and her rump is a bit shapelier like the rest of her body. Noticeable scars run across her body, curving over her face, belly, back, and her right leg. Each of these is sealed shut with silver staples. Ae honestly doesn’t know how they got there, but she doesn’t really care enough to look into it. Ai’s skin is a shade of dull black and, like Sloth, her body is incredibly heavy, topping out at around ten tons. Her hair is a slightly metallic emerald color, hanging loose with slight waves as it hangs down to the back of her knees. Her eyes, also an emerald color, are normal save for the pupils, which can change shape and which glow when she is excited.
Ai’s clothes are very simple. On her feet are worn a pair of polished black clogs, and beneath these is worn a pair of knee high black socks. A simple navy skirt is worn around her waist, something akin to a school girl’s outfit, although it stops only just below her upper thighs, showing off a good majority of her legs. Her shirt compliments the school girl look as it is a simple button up white t-shirt made of cotton, although it stops before reaching her belly button and is generally left unbuttoned enough to show off some of her cleavage. Finally, hidden beneath her skirt is a set of simple white cotton panties, which include a tiny pink bow upon the front of the waistband.
As she created her Hell Beast Ae had comfort partially in mind. To reflect this Ai’s skin is incredibly soft and smooth, like a velvet covered pillow, and it always remains chilled. The scent she gives off can be changed at will by her creator, although generally it is kept at the familiar and relaxing scent of lavender. While typically quiet Ai actually does know how to speak. Generally she will act as a translator for Ae if need be, although typically Sloth doesn’t even bother with this. Still, when she does speak her voice comes out as something which is slightly soft and smooth though also slightly raspy and high pitched, like how one might expect a cat to sound if it were to speak. Like her mistress Ai moves with confidence, not caring about most of the world around herself. She is also ambidextrous, although unlike her creator she slightly favors her left hand. Her spiritual energy, if it was viewed, would be fuchsia, and her blood spills out red like a normal person’s, although perhaps a bit more vibrant in tone.» Naraka Jānavara Appearance Image: Full Size Here» Merged with Rakshasa?: Yes
Ai does not have her own Tukara Saitana. Instead she merges with her creator and the two of them share a Tukara Saitana form. In order to accomplish this both Ae and Ai clasp hands together, fingers interlaced, and then share a kiss. Their energy is transferred to each other and merged in order to draw out the Tukara Saitana, and much like her other form this results in a blinding flash of light, only this one is fuchsia in color, and what it leaves behind is much different.» Naraka Jānavara Personality: Affectionate:
While apathetic towards most things Ai is madly in love with her mistress. Perhaps this is due to how she was created, having been birthed from Sloth’s heart, or maybe it is a result of hundreds of years of solitude spent with the little Rakshasa. Regardless of the reasons there is nothing Ai loves more than Sloth, and she isn’t afraid to show this thanks to her apathy towards others. Even in public she will cling and cuddle and nuzzle up to Ae, at times even sneaking the occasional kiss or perhaps something more. Not that Ae cares either of course, which can lead to some situations which, if either of them were normal, might be considered very embarrassing.Apathetic:
For the most part Ai is just as apathetic as her mistress. She cares for very little and will generally not even give other people the time of day. There are however two exceptions to this. The first concerns her master, Ae, who she absolutely adores, loves even, and who she would do anything for. Her second exception is when it comes to working for Ae. Laziness is ignored in favor of doing as she is commanded, or to accomplish things which might bring Ae’s happiness or affection.Driven:
While most of the time Ai is content with remaining just as lazy as her master this is not the case when there is something Ae needs done. To appease her master Ai will work incredibly hard, focusing on taking down a task which as much speed and vigor as possible. Also unlike Ae she has a few things which she actually enjoys doing. She loves to cook, she loves to clean, she loves to sew, and she loves to take care of whatever need that Ae might have. Sloth purposefully created her this way, although there are no regrets from either of them for it.Quiet:
Like Ae she is very quiet, tending to listen and act more than talk. Unlike Ae however she actually does have the ability to speak. However she rarely does this unless required to be a go between for Ae and any visitors, mostly to emulate her beloved and partially because she is simply lazy. Besides, she can speak with Ae via telepathy. Why spend the breath speaking out loud unless need be, especially when she could care less what happens to anyone else?THE POWER OF NARAKA JANAVARA
For the most part Ai’s powers are simple: she is designed by Sloth to protect the realm through brute strength and not much else. Some parts of her are very similar in make to Sloth’s, which makes sense considering how lazy she is. Still, this does not mean she is completely helpless: in hand to hand combat she is quite formidable and she even has a couple of techniques which belong completely to her. Of course when she does join with Ae these are shared, but then that makes sense considering that they do, at that point, share just about everything.Natural Skills: » Brawler Build:
Like her creator Ai’s body is unusually dense, although not quite to the degree that Ae’s is. Instead a majority of the dense muscle within her body is concentrated into her legs, although it is otherwise evenly distributed throughout the rest of her body. She is not quite as strong as her master, nor is she as durable, but both of these are made up for with great speed and incredibly powerful kicks. In fact much of Sloth’s speed is stored within her Hell Beast and is really only accessed fully when they are merged together. Ae does have good reason for doing this: since she is so quick Ai is able to finish her chores much faster, and to carry out Sloth’s commands with haste. By making Ai quick Sloth creates an even better servant, one who can do her bidding more quickly and much more efficiently.» Keeper of the Realm:
When she is not directly controlling her realm, which is to say most of the time, Ae relies upon her Hell Beast to take over and to keep things under control. To properly carry out this task requires that Ai have some control over the 500th level of Hell, and so for this reason she has been granted this power. As Keeper of the Realm Ai can manipulate it to her will, just as Sloth can. This also helps in the case of some intruder growing rowdy, as Ai can use the environment to her full advantage when coming to its defense.» Living Doll:
As with Ae apathy runs deeply throughout the Hell Beast’s body and mind. With her apathy Ai is able to shrug off pain, emotions, feelings, and most mental intrusions given enough time. While not to the same extent that Sloth can endure Ai can even resist the madness which befalls Demons who venture near to Angels, although this will gradually wear away given enough exposure. Attacks made against her body by weaker foes are also somewhat resisted and, with enough of a gap, even shrugged off entirely. Poisons and diseases also can be simply ignored, for they too are incorporated into her body. Like her master Ai is also quite comfortable within extreme cold and heat environments, primarily so that she can remain close to her mistress when need be. However there are some advantages that Ai holds over her master.
In order to avoid maintenance issues Ai’s body will regenerate on its own, without the need for sleep. This regeneration factor is quite powerful, and like a doll she can easily place lost limbs right back into place, fully returning to normal again within seconds. Alternatively Ai can will her limbs to continue moving, even when they have been separated from her body. At will these can be detonated, unleashing a powerful explosion and a cloud of sleeping gas, after which point they can be regenerated once more. Finally, at Ae’s will the Hell Beast’s body can be manipulated and shifted into whatever else she desires. In many ways Ai is like a living, breathing doll, only filled with gore in an attempt to make her fit in with others.
Despite all of her useful traits Ai is not completely immortal, although anyone fighting her might expect that to be the cast. Within her chest rests an armored orb of incredibly dense scales and spiritual seals, which are designed to protect the one thing which can slay her: the heart which Ae used for her creation. Not only does this organ give her power but it also is, within her mind, the gift of life and love granted to her by Sloth. Destroying this heart would, in essence, destroy Ai. For these reasons she treasures it immensely by sealing it away within the densest part of her body.» Shared Mind:
Ai shares a telepathic link with her mistress. This allows her easy entry into Sloth’s mind while she slumbers, and this contact can even be made if she isn’t within her mistress’ mind. Of course the primary reason for this ability is so that she can act as a translator if need be, for Ae doesn’t know how to speak. Even if she did she would still rely upon Ai to do the talking. This way she is able to remain as lazy as possible. Another reason for this link is, again, for Sloth’s convenience. If she needs something done then she can simply contact her faithful servant regardless of their distance away from each other.Defensive: » Inertia Field:
One of Ai’s two special abilities, Inertia Field is designed to protect an area. Typically it is used on her mistress while she slumbers, so as not to disturb her sleep whilst dispatching of rowdy intruders. However, in a tight pinch Ai can use it on herself in order to defend against spiritual attacks. This ability is cast upon a specified target or target area, forming a spherical field of energy around it. Everything within the protective field is essentially frozen in time. This freezes every bit of spiritual energy and matter into place. Attacks slung against targets within the field prove to be harmless, as nothing is disturbed or changed. At will Ai can dissipate this field, even while within it, although every second it is held is quite draining. At its maximum this field can take up a spherical area with a radius of one hundred meters
, and at her current tier Ai is able to sustain this field for two posts
, after which there is a cooling down period of four posts
before she is able to use it again. She can use it a maximum of six times
within a thread before it begins to eat heavily into her reserves. Also this cannot be used on living creatures.Enhancement: » Wake Up!:
Like Sloth Ai is able to, with a simple powerful slap of her hand, reverse the effects of apathy and lethargy upon a person’s mind and body. Feelings of excitement and enthusiasm will flood those who have been hit with this and their body, excited just the same, will work in an overdrive mode in order to produce more energy, thus providing the target with a sudden burst of it. The negatives also apply when she uses it, in that her target’s body will begin to break down and wear itself out with enough applications. Typically Ai will use this to wake her mistress up from a deep slumber, and when it is really needed she can use this to bolster Sloth’s energy.

THE RAKSHASA OF SIN TEMPLATE
A Piece of the Devil
X. Tukaṛā Saitāna – Piece of the Devil ((Event/Permission Only - Layer Only))» Tukaṛā Saitāna Name: Turiya - The Slumbering Titan
When one thinks on the various states of consciousness there are three which often come to mind. The first is the waking conscious, essentially the act of being awake and what people experience when they are not asleep, where external and active thoughts are born. The second is dreaming, or unconsciousness, the state which is experienced when one sleeps and dreams and the place where subtle images and impressions reside. The third is deep or dreamless sleep, located within the realm of the subconscious, where latent thoughts exist. Like most other creatures Ae experiences all three, often venturing into the third state, or deep sleep, in order to access those thoughts, ideas, and hidden secrets of her being.
Turiya is the name given to the fourth state of consciousness. It is the absolute level of consciousness, residing within the realm of consciousness itself, and it transcends all other levels. Because this is the state which is activated during her Tukara Saitana Ae has given it this name, although she does have a secondary title for it. For all intents and purposes Sloth is a slumbering titan condensed into a much smaller form, and so this name also fits. Instead of using precious energy making a choice she simply uses both, because both fit quite nicely.» Tukaṛā Saitāna Theme Song:(Clicky!)» Tukaṛā Saitāna Release Appearance Written:
By combining herself with her Hell Beast Ae takes on a drastic change in both power and appearance. Her horns become much larger, now composed of a single solid armoring which is black in color, the tips hooking inwards in a design which is best used for bashing and ramming. Hands and feet both take on a more monstrous form, covered in hard black grasping claws meant to rend flesh and crush bone. Wings expand outwards from her back, each consisting of many black metallic veins and pointed towards the tips like blades. At their maximum they fill out a wingspan of ten meters each, and each can be manipulated like a separate stabbing claw. Ae’s tail also changes significantly: its length increases to one hundred meters, and while it is sleek to the touch it is actually coated in millions of centimeter long scales, each of which can activate a sharpened ridge splitting outwards two directions. At the end of her tail rests a mouth filled with thousands of sharpened teeth.
In this new form Ae’s eyes change color: her right turns red while her left turns blue. Her ears grow slightly more elongated, and her skin turns a dark ashen color as it is now covered in billions of microscopic dense scales, each one dense with her power. Sloth’s height matches that of her Hell Beast’s, growing now to five and a half feet tall and her figure becomes much more curvaceous and womanly. While her hair remains white it now floats upwards, drifting and flickering within the air as if she were submerged underwater. A great scar also forms across the front of her body, splitting up the center from the pelvic region just below her belly button and stopping at the base of her throat. From this apparent wound flows a constant source of golden light, which can also be seen within her mouth whenever her lips part.
Ae’s clothes are also replaced in this form by scales, although these take on the thickness and appearance of armor. On her hips are pieces which hold three jagged spikes, each appearing as grasping claws, and when she moves close to an opponent these can take on a life of their own, reaching out to dig into an opponent’s body. A smaller scale piece is worn over her crotch, curving down between her legs in order to provide some minor level of decency, although nothing is worn on her rear as her tail, nearly as thick as her hips in some places, generally covers this region up. Covering her chest is more armoring, although it is primarily in place to, once again, provide some decency. Her shoulders are now covered by pauldrons, each containing a spike which can be altered to point outwards for a more dangerous shoulder ram. Floating over each arm is a massive gauntlet, each held up through sheer power alone and designed to act partially as a shield and partially as a weapon when need be. However the ultimate reason for the gauntlets, the armor on her hips, and her pauldrons is to act as a seal, which is designed to hold in her titan form.» Tukaṛā Saitāna Appearance Image:Full Size Here» Tukaṛā Saitāna Persona:
For all intents and purposes Sloth’s personality remains relatively the same when she ascends to her Tukara Saitana. Apathy is still very prevalent, and if anything it grows stronger despite Ai’s inclusion into her being. Aggression also remains, and in this new form it might even grow stronger as she seeks to ravage whatever has forced her hand to these lengths. Her mind remains one which focuses upon tactical situations despite the vast increase in power, primarily because she understands that becoming too reckless might cost her something important like energy. In this state she is no longer lonely, as she is now joined together with Ai. Of course even if that weren’t the case her apathy, at this stage, would simply wipe such concerns away. With this new form however Ae is no longer simply quiet, nor is she unsatisfied. Instead the following changes take place.Excited:
For something to push her to use this form means that Sloth has either found something interesting which she desires or, more likely, her hand has been forced. In either case there is great excitement to be had. Even she is not completely immune to such thing, especially not when she has been rejoined with Ai. In fact it is Ai’s excitement with merging together which partially fuels this feeling, although mostly it is simply a matter of something interesting occurring. Regardless, to push her this far warrants such a feeling, and it is one which she will surprisingly embrace, at least a little bit.Speechless:
As with any other Rakshasa Sloth becomes speechless, or rather, she is no longer able to speak any other language save for the ancient and incredibly complex Demon language. Of course this is provided she ever bothers to learn to speak in the first place. Just as with any other form she will instead resort to roaring, as it is what she is used to, although even now she will generally remain silent unless she sees a tactical advantage in doing otherwise.THE POWER OF TUKARA SAITANA
This is the pinnacle of Sloth’s powers, manifested within her body and the powers she wields. Normally a portion of her strength is contained within Ai. The rejoining of both creatures thusly unlocks the full arsenal of the Rakshasa which, given her age and method of training, is quite considerable. Apathy takes on great importance within this form and pervades most of her powers. A few powers used during her weaker form also receive a considerable increase in power and utility. By tapping into her Turiya Sloth unlocks a brand new power, and if she decides to go all out she may remove the armoring from her body, which act as shackles to contain the mighty titan condensed within her form.Passive: » Apathy Incarnate:
Apathy is and always will be Sloth’s greatest weapon, and in this new form she becomes Apathy Incarnate. It runs so deeply within her mind, body, and soul that she begins to ignore certain laws of nature. Even death itself can, to a certain extent, be ignored by the sheer level of indifference within her being. The environment and creatures around her also start to become affected by this. In essence she becomes the epitome of all that Sloth represents.Indifference to Death:
Ae’s apathy extends to death itself. While nobody can run from the ultimate end forever Ae has reached a level of indifference which allows her to, at least momentarily, ignore it. Effects and wounds which would normally slay a person are instead delayed by her body, uncaring that it has in fact been dealt a mortal wound, and by her spirit, which cares not to leave the body. Within this state, which activates upon what should be her death, Ae can continue to function normally, thus giving her some time to fix the issue of her life ending. Of course this ends when she leaves her Tukara Saitana, which generally comes around once she runs out of the energy to sustain it.Indifference to Form:
Ae’s apathy runs so deeply within her body that it can affect her on the atomic scale. By focusing on her indifference towards the atomic structure of her body she can essentially allow herself to briefly fall apart, essentially phasing out of the physical realm as she stops physically existing as one whole body. Essentially, at will she can phase through objects, people, even spiritual attacks if they are not large enough to simply obliterate her, although this can be quite draining if repeated too often.Indifference to Harm:
Ae’s apathy runs heavily throughout her veins. Poisons and venoms are ignored by her body. Attacks made by those substantially weaker than her simply bounce or slide off as even her flesh ignores the wounds they would cause to her. Environmental extremes are simply cast aside as her body adapts to them.Indifference to Others:
Ae’s apathy extends to the world around her and those who inhabit it. Energy and spiritual attacks weaken and scatter apart, no longer desiring to continue on their path. Apathy pervades the mind, killing all other thoughts and ideas, an especially troubling issue for those who rely upon feelings or emotions or even other sins. Physical objects, creatures, and spiritual beings start to lose their shape and gravity weakens as even the natural laws of the universe start to grow indifferent to the region surrounding her. While the effects aren’t immediate they will, over time, begin to assert themselves upon everything in the area, which can lead to unstable spiritual attacks, a decrease in durability, even a loss of memories which may result in her foes simply forgetting their own techniques and abilities, at least so long as they remain near her. Those effects which take a toll on individuals will only affect those of significantly lower power than her, which at this point includes those of tier four or lower
.Indifference to Thought:
Ae’s apathy fills her mind. Pain, even if it is suffered, is flat out ignored, even if it may favor her. Mental intruders enter to find nothing but an endless ocean of apathy, which floods outwards through that link to fill their minds too with the same feeling. In essence her apathy forms a shield which lashes out against those who attempt to assault it.» Slumbering Titan Revealed:
As she has reached the pinnacle of Sloth Ae now releases even more of the barriers which restrict her slumbering titan self. Her weight increases by a factor of twenty while her body grows denser still. This essentially increases her weight to two hundred tons. To handle the extra weight she gains an equally immense increase in strength. Due to the dense armoring and increased weight Ae grows stronger and harder to break, her movements carry great momentum and impact, although all the disadvantages of her increased weight also increase. In essence both her durability and her strength are increased by 200%.Defensive: » Infinity Blanket:
An upgraded form of her Natural Blanket, Ae is still able to use her wings as a formidable defense, as they still contain a great deal of her power. When her wings are needed for this role a bright golden energy will fill the many gaps between the edges and veins, seeking to create a massive shield to obscure her from view and harm alike. The many sharpened ends of her wings can also be used offensively, striking out at those who would seek to harm her with sharpened blade-like tips. These wings can absorb attacks from someone who is at Master level strength for up to two posts
before requiring repairs, although only half that for those who are stronger still.» Temporal Lag:
By focusing her apathy upon an area Ae can temporarily slow objects and even energy attacks down to a crawl. In this case the energy created by their movement is subdued with lethargy. While draining and short lived this can be used to give her crucial seconds in the middle of a heated battle, which might mean the difference between her victory and defeat. Attacks of sufficient power can reduce the effectiveness of this, while those much less powerful than herself can even be stopped entirely for the brief time that it is held. Of course just because other things are slowed doesn’t mean Sloth is, and it is through the use of this ability that she will generally make up for her generally slower movement speed.Offensive: » Deadly Apathy:
By focusing her apathy into her energy and the air within her lungs Ae can unleash a devastating attack designed to deliver her powerful sin right into the very being of her foes. Drawn up from her lungs, Ae spews forth a great sparkling golden cloud of flames and gas. This condensed apathy feeds upon everything it touches. Body parts impacted or organs if it is ingested become poisoned with apathy and stop working, even on a molecular level, and may start to experience atrophy. The minds of those victims hit with this deadly cloud start to grow numb and unfeeling, desiring nothing at all. Even unconscious thought processes such as breathing will cease to function. Of course the effects are greater for those impacted directly, and especially for those who are caught within the attack at close range. The area targeted is a wide cone shaped region in front of her, with a maximum range of fifty meters
. Using this requires a two turn
cooling down period before she can do so again, with a maximum of five times
used within a thread before she begins to eat heavily into her reserves.» Draining Vortex:
Even Ae’s yawns become more dangerous in her new form, taking in deeper breaths and with considerably more power. Those nearby might even be pulled right off their feet. To fuel herself and sap away at her opponent’s energy reserves Ae sucks in the latent energy within the region surrounding herself, even dropping the air temperature as the latent energy within the air is pulled inwards. Creatures which stand too close might find themselves in danger of simply having their life energy sucked right from their bodies, provided they are considerably weaker than Ae. The area targeted is an area surrounding her, stretching out to a radius of twenty meters
on all sides. Using this requires a two turn
cooling down period before she can do so again, with a maximum of five times
used within a thread before she begins to eat heavily into her reserves.» Inferno Firestorm:
As before Ae is able to mix energy from Za Koa, her blood, and a touch of darkness to unleash the Black Inferno Blast. And, like before, this can come in the form of something resembling an Arrancar’s Cero or Bala type attack. However now it can also be unleashed as an explosion outwards from her body, or as a cloud of bright red flames from her mouth. Those caught within the blast of this attack still find an intense heat rippling through their flesh and are still invaded by a rush of parasites and the magic that goes into the attack. And, as usual, these parasites seek to drain those caught within the attack of their energy. However this attack is much more potent and will even linger for some time within the area, burning everything that it touches. The effects linger twice as long, and will even remain within the environment for that time, creating hazard spots for her opponents. Using this requires a two turn
cooling down period before she can do so again, with a maximum of five times
used within a thread before she begins to eat heavily into her reserves.» Sleepy Blizzard:
An upgraded version of her Sleepy Cloud attack, this attack is simply more powerful and more widespread. The concentrated blast of frigid sleeping gas is twice as potent, with temperatures now running around -400 degrees F, nearing absolute zero. For opponents weaker than herself inhaling it might result in their immediately falling to sleep, all while the frozen air damages the lungs of those it enters. When she unleashes this attack it is in the form of a wide cone shaped region in front of her, with a maximum range of eighty meters
. Using this requires a two turn
cooling down period before she can do so again, with a maximum of five times
used within a thread before she begins to eat heavily into her reserves.Enhancement: » Awaken the Slumbering Titan:
Since her birth Ae’s true form has been that of a mountainous creature. Now that she has been fully joined once more and fully awakened Sloth seeks to unleash the creature which slumbers deep within. After the removal of her hip armor, gauntlets, and pauldrons Sloth will begin to rapidly increase in size, finally stopping at her true height of one kilometer. Her weight, now unrestricted, will increase by a factor of five hundred. At this point she will now weigh one hundred thousand tons. To accommodate this weight Sloth gains an immense boost to her strength, and while her skin does become slightly weakened with the lesser density its sheer mass alone makes up for this. Of course she becomes much slower in this lumbering form, however those energy based abilities which she uses are vastly increased in scope, as is her tail, which now stretches out for roughly ten kilometers behind her. This form can be incredibly taxing, and only held for a brief period of time, however it does allow her the ability to reap untold levels of devastation, and might just give her the heads up she needs against more powerful foes. Whilst in this form she receives a further boost of 250% to both her durability and her strength.Other: » Feeding Tail:
Ae’s tail isn’t just there for its good looks. This massive creature, which is both prehensile and able to think and act on its own, is both a weapon and an ally within any of Sloth’s battle. Its skin is covered by multiple layers of microscopic scales, each one created of super condensed energy. This makes her tail immensely heavy and, to deal with the weight, immensely powerful. The composition of this creature’s scales also means that a clubbing attack made by its body will result in flesh torn from the skin, allowing Sloth the ability to flay her victims into a bloody pulp. Her tail’s mouth contains thousands of sharpened teeth and fangs, each of which hold the paralyzing fluids found within her body, and when need be she can also unleash the breath attacks she’d normally use from her regular mouth through the gaping maw of this creature.» Fetch:
When all else fails Ae can always detach her tail, allowing it freedom of movement from her body. If this occurs then her foes will find themselves fighting two opponents, as her tail is able to independently strike, although while detached it loses the breath weapons that Ae can use, and it will no longer feed her the energy that it drains from its victims. Still, it is quite useful, and if she needs to Ae can command the massive snake-like creature to detonate in an Inferno Firestorm explosion. Given its enormous length this will result in widespread devastation. When it has been destroyed Ae can simply regrow it given enough time, although it can be very draining to do this. Also, once the tail has been detonated it can be regrown, however it cannot be separated again within the same thread.» Turiya’s Fourth Eye – The Conscious Sleep:
Just as before Ae requires sleep in order to activate her accelerated regeneration, however this new form of hers gives her a much needed advantage with the advent of Turiya’s Fourth Eye. Have transcended the three primary states of consciousness, Sloth is now able to remain conscious and aware even as she slumbers, thus allowing her the freedom to fight as normal even while she is resting. Not only does this allow her to use her regenerative abilities while fighting normally, but it also allows her to actively regain energy through rest even while she is fighting. While this is in effect she cannot focus on her other abilities, and thus cannot use those which require activation, and the energy regained is often times not enough to allow her to remain perpetually within her Tukara Saitana form, especially if she uses other abilities. Still, it does afford her a much needed advantage, especially in an area where she might normally struggle. During battle she can retain this form despite any damage taken for up to five posts
before she must revert back to using her normal Nap Time, and this will require an eight post
cooling down period before it can be activated once again.

Comments/Notes: After hashing things out in PC, and after carefully considering Yuki's activity and attitude on the site thus far, I'm approving this app and watching it closely to make sure these powers aren't being used outside of the appropriate arenas for such. This is a fantastic app imo and it was a lovely read.
Tier: 0-5+ for Ae, 0-5+ for Ai.
