I. Personality Traits» Personality:
Bossy- Claire is used to getting what she wants when she wants it. She lets everyone know exactly what she expects of them and is amazed and furious if they don't respond as she would like them to. She's grown accustomed to getting her way, so any attempts to break her of this habit will be met with nothing but failure at this point. It's become something of an addiction.
Curious- Claire has always been a curious person, especially when she was a small child. Her curiosity and lack of respect for authority led her to get herself into trouble more than once growing up, but that never stopped her from doing the same thing next time. Truthfully, she couldn't help herself. The feelings of curiosity overwhelmed her, and she simply had to know. She has also done morally questionable things many times over the course of her life to sate her curiosity. This curiosity is what usually pushes Claire to do the things she does, and her life would have taken a much different path without it.
Defiant- While she may not often be serious one of the few things that will annoy Claire is another attempting to control her. She doesn't react well to this, and will usually become angry within moments of the attempt. She has a fiery temper, and won't hesitate to express her rage to anyone she thinks has wronged her, so it's probably best not to try.
Empath- Even before she became a Sueki, Claire was very tuned in to the emotions of those around her. Empathy is the ability to understand and have an idea of others emotions, but that doesn't fully describe Claire. She is more of an empath; someone who is extremely sensitive to emotional change, not just getting an idea of the feelings that another is having, but fully grasping them. Claire feels in full all of the emotions that others are experiencing around her. While she is very in tune with the emotions of others, ironically she is quite removed from her own emotional responses. This is quite a unique combination, and it allows her to get an approximation of others feelings without being weighed down by them.
Energetic- Claire is always filled with energy, even when she's just woken up. This nature carries over even when she doesn't actually have any energy, so it's somewhat difficult to tell if she's tired herself out or not. The first indication would probably be when she passes out.
Fickle- Claire can be extremely unpredictable in her personal interactions. One moment she may genuinely be enjoying someone's company, and the next she could have a viscerally negative response to any number of small cues which, while not noticed on any intellectual level, are still registered in an instinctual way due to the vast amount of experience she has dealing with picking up on any sort of emotional cue. Of course if someone is obviously (due to her power) misrepresenting their intentions, character, or emotions, then this wouldn't really play into that. In those cases she would know for certain. This trait deals with those things that are so subtle they can't even be picked up by Claire's abilities. (This is basically justification for interpersonal interactions, and won't have any effect on her actual level of power. Basically, when she acts in a way that doesn't immediately make sense it's because on some level she doesn't trust what's happening, even if she has no real reason not to.)
Homosexual- She's only attracted to women, although she has nothing against men. Just not her cup of tea.
Passionate- In whatever she does Claire fully invests herself. This can lead to problems she wouldn't otherwise experience, but it's not anything she can control. She simply finds herself fully immersed in things much quicker than the average person. This doesn't always turn out to be a bad thing though. Sometimes Claire is able to use this to her advantage.
Vain- Others often tell her she is beautiful, and Claire can't help but agree. She enjoys catching glimpses of herself in the mirror, but won't go out of her way to stare. In general, she has a good feeling about herself and her appearance.
Willful- This has a lot of overlap with many of her other traits, but also covers its own ground. When Claire starts something she isn't very likely to stop or be dissuaded. She'll go far, far out of her way to make sure that whatever she's started is finished if she can help it. » Likes:
food that is sweet, breasts, control.» Dislikes:
lemons, being given orders, unexpectedly being drenched in water.
I. Character History» History
Claire was born into a wealthy Sueki family in Romania during the month of January, 1886. Her family was one of the most well connected and influential in the country, and her father was one of the best tacticians the Sueki had access to. The Sueki had all originated in England, but they weren't welcome there anymore. The citizens had taken to hunting them, and chasing them off if not taking them out. Due to his status as a top tactician and the fact that his cover was a lucrative business that could easily be transferred to London, the Sueki sent him to plan their defenses. They set off a few months before Claire's first birthday, traveling by carriage most of the way. The journey lasted several weeks, and the fact that they had a baby with them meant it was all the more difficult, but they reached their destination nonetheless.
It took them some time to settle in and adjust, but Claire would have been happy almost anywhere at that age. Shortly after they had settled in though, winter joined them. It was the worst winter the country had ever had, and has ever had since, and the sea was frozen for miles from the shore. Her family was able to remain in relative comfort, although nothing compared to what they had been used to previously. The cold was always a threat, and they had to be careful about their supply of firewood, but they fared much better than the poor living in the city. The death toll was unimaginably high, and the bodies began to start piling up faster than they could deal with them. As horrifying as it sounds, the citizens began to have mass cremations -gathering in the buildings they'd cleared for the soul purpose- to heat themselves. During this time Claire's father made many notes regarding the Sueki's plans for survival. At this point the race was not doing too well on the whole. A few months later the sea and rivers returned to normal,things began to warm up a bit, and spring set in. Having survived her first year Claire was rewarded with a life of luxury for the most part. The coming winters proved to be much tamer.
Her early childhood consisted of a good deal of pampering, and though her parents meant well they succeeded only in making her a bit spoiled. As she aged Claire became used to getting exactly what she wanted, and asking for things soon became little more than a formality. Her father was a merchant, the most respected and well payed in the city, anything she desired was easily afforded, and truthfully her parents wanted her to have everything. She had no idea about any of the sueki
Around the age of seven it became clear that Claire was far more in tune with the emotions of others than the average person was. At first this was really nothing special, but from the age of seven to ten she spent a lot of her free time, or time that would have otherwise been put to waste, to practice her newly found ability. Before long she was picking up much more of the minutia, the underlying tones, of each particular emotion. This proved to be extremely useful, as it gave her the information she needed to hone her ability even further. Before long she was getting her way wherever she went, not just at home. There was no real malicious intent behind this, and Claire never attempted to manipulate people into doing things that she thought were wrong, but she did enjoy getting what she wanted.
Over the next four years Claire continued to live in comfort and luxury, but the Sueki position was weakening drastically. Her father had been doing everything in his power to mislead hunters, win battles, and generally increase the Sueki defenses, but it proved to be too little in the end. By 1900 the Sueki had been so reduced in numbers that Claire's father no longer saw any reason to continue the fight. They'd been decisively beaten, for the time being at least. They'd have to go into hiding, not just their family, but the race as a whole.
This was when Claire first learned that she was different from most of the people around her. Before they had to flee the thought had never entered her mind, and she exhibited no traits that would indicate otherwise. At first she didn't believe that it could be true, but she ran all the same. She couldn't very well leave her family, and people were growing more and more distrustful of all strangers, regardless of whether or not they displayed signs of being a wolf in sheep's clothing. When she turned eighteen however, she found that what her father had told her was true. The sudden onset of her sueki nature was shocking, to say the least. She found herself continuously seeking either of the two sources of energy for her new found power for what, to her, seemed like eons. In reality it was on the short side of two weeks.
Due to the fact that she'd always been curious, it didn't take Claire long to start experimenting with her powers. Her father taught her the basics of the Sueki arsenal, but she held no great interest. She was extremely competent, but she felt that this was not the path she should be heading down. Her true power lay elsewhere. This thought plagued her for years, and there was very little she could think do about it. Eventually she experienced the most cryptic dream she could have possibly imagined. The entirety of it consisted of extremely personal symbols that only she could have pieced together into the message she received from it. Her subconscious had solved the problem for her already, and couldn't be bothered to wait any longer for her to get around to the right answer.
This is how the idea of the container first entered her mind. For almost an entire year Claire focused the entirety of her energy on creating a container within herself. A space where she could store the energy that would become her true power. A hole within her soul that she could trap all of the emotional energy that permeated the world inside of. Some days the process was painful. Other days she felt nothing at all, and continued her efforts mindlessly. There were days when she was able to function normally though, and during these times she could feel the fruits of her labor. Even while it was being constructed and refined the container she'd created was filling with emotional energy. On the good days she could feel the power flowing through her. A different power than she'd ever felt before. A different power than she imagined anyone had ever felt before. It was exhilarating. Then the pain began to become unbearable.
In addition to the area in her soul that had been evacuated to accommodate the energy, a physical representation of the container was also beginning to be created. A coating of the deepest black that surrounds Claire's heart, which almost acts as an armor. If this coating were to be shattered however, Claire's heart would most likely also be crushed. If not though, her soul at least would sustain great damage, and she would lose her powers for whatever amount of time it took her to regenerate the coating.
The days that she felt nothing lessened. The days when she felt the power disappeared. Still, she pressed on. She could feel that the container would break under the pressure of her soul unless it was enlarged further. Unless it was refined, hardened by the currents of her power. As every second of her life became agony Claire desperately clung to the idea that she would be better when she'd gone through this. She would be stronger. Her will would be unconquerable. So she pressed on. She pressed on until the container she formed with her soul shattered it from within. The moment her soul splintered into tiny pieces was the most agonizing moment Claire had ever experienced. She had no way to describe it. Any pain she'd felt in the past was minuscule, nothing in comparison. Her body stopped responding to the signals she was sending it, she was immediately immobilized.
For a soul to be shattered is a dire thing. It will cause its owner unbearable pain, in the most literal sense of the term. That's if it's just a moderate case. Claire's soul was damaged to such an extent that, if you were to examine it, you would likely say it could never be repaired. In an attempt to maintain some semblance of personality after the ordeal came to an end, if it ever did, Claire's mind shut down. During this time she preyed on the women who lived in the small homesteads of rural Romania. She never stayed in one place for more than a day, her body kept moving even though she gave it no direction. It was acting on a purely primal level, doing nothing but what it had to do to survive.
It took nearly two hundred years for Claire's soul to mend itself back in to one piece. After that it took another 5 years to repair the cracks that still existed. For one final year Claire acted mindlessly, following her instinct. Her soul had been healed, but she had yet to return to her body, she was drawn in to her mind even further.
She found herself trapped within a dark place, chatting with a voice that seemed to be hers, only older. Before the voice would let her out she had to come to accept it. She initially was confused. It had been a long time since her father had told her of what it meant to be a Sueki, and she had trouble recalling much that had happened before her little ordeal. When she did finally realize what was going on she couldn't help but be surprised. She had been under the impression that it was always a conscious decision, to engage with the shadowy voice that one had to speak with to unlock their full strength. She however, found herself hostage to her own power. It wasn't a feeling she enjoyed, and it took her a long time to come to grips with the fact, but when she did it became much easier to converse with the shadow voice. Soon she found herself asking questions not just to get out, but because she was genuinely curious. She needed to know what this voice had to say.
Claire spent many hours speaking with the shadowy voice that inhabited her mind, and at the end of their discussion she felt very different. Different about herself, about her race, about everything. Her eyes had been opened in a way that she couldn't exactly describe, but she was certainly happy that she'd had the experience. In the end she accepted her shadow voice with open arms. Every part of herself was appreciated and welcome. That was most likely her narcissism acting up.
In the midst of one of her feeding sessions Claire abruptly snapped back into place. She screamed louder than her victim, finally able to express just how hurt she'd been. No one who heard that scream would ever forget it, not it they lived for a thousand years.
Claire wandered on her own for a few months after she awoke from her extended slumber, using her newfound ability to gain more than she would have ever though of previously. She talked to all of the sick, dying, and elderly she came across, as she found it exceedingly easy to convince them she should be left everything they had when they passed. She gained a few properties across the countryside, several fortunes, and even a castle, which was her the thing that had excited her the most.
In April of 2215, only a few months after Claire regained her sanity, she found the young girl who would become her first real experiment. While she was wandering the back streets of Bucharest Claire found a girl wearing nothing but rags scrabbling between the buildings. She watched the girl for only a short period of time before she'd made up her mind. She saw potential in the girl, and noticed the fact that she'd been turned into a Sueki almost immediately. What really made her want to take the girl with her though, was the ever growing curiosity she had regarding her own power. As she approached the girl Claire did everything she could to exude kindness. She used her power to the extent of her skill, as she wanted to make the best first impression she possibly could. She soon found out the girls age, where she'd come from, and what her name was. Claire had a much easier time using her power on the girl once she'd discovered her name; Rhett.
Before too long she'd convinced the girl that she meant no harm, and that she way someone to be trusted and obeyed. She asked Rhett about her past, and upon hearing the story, comforted her and did her best to show the girl affection. Having determined that the girl had nowhere to go.. and had no one to look for her, Claire offered Rhett a room in her castle, and when the girl accepted they both made their way out of the city and towards Claire's home.
Over the next several years Claire experimented heavily with her abilities. She did everything she could think of to instill feelings of loyalty, love, and adoration into the girl from very early on in their relationship. It was when she developed her ecstasy ability though, that she really started to see improvement. Claire gave the girl simple tasks to accomplish, then rewarded her with the intense waves of euphoria she'd worked so hard to develop. That seemed to make all the difference, and she learned that positive reinforcement would be one of her strongest tools.
She also experimented with giving the girl negative emotions, although she didn't begin doing this until much later on in their relationship. Over a long period of time she manipulated the girls responses to hearing the terms "good girl" and "bad girl" specifically from her. She found that eventually she didn't need to use her power at all, and that the girls responses were genuine. This pleased Claire greatly, as it meant that her powers worked as any natural feeling did. It would sustain itself over time, grow in strength, and eventually not require her input at all to maintain its effect.
Before long Claire's control over the girl became quite extensive, and she could suggest any number of things and be obeyed. After a few years of this training Claire began to toy with Rhett more carelessly. She would catapult the girl from happiness to sorrow over and over again by using the phrases she'd already taught her for little reason other than she was bored. When the girl finally snapped and lashed out, which to her credit took many, many years, Claire decided she would be better off confined for a while. An isolated room where she would spend some time to reflect on what she'd done was prepared, and Claire would be the only one allowed to see her.
Claire soon became interested in seeing how Rhett would respond to being confined for an extended period of time. During this time she planned on influencing the girls emotions in no way. Obedience to her was already strongly ingrained, and she wanted to see Rhett's natural reaction to being confined. It was 200 years ago that she confined Rhett to her room, and she only just recently concluded her experiment. She found the results interesting, but she's still determining exactly what they say about Rhett.
During the time of Rhett's confinement Claire still traveled far and wide. She occasionally found others to accompany her in her journeys, but more often than not she went at it alone. Her primary goal during this time was to create as many connections as she could. She needed people in the world who could get her what she needed. She needed someone from every side reporting to her. She had big aspirations, she had to have all of the advantages she could get, and superior information was a huge advantage.

I. Natural Abilities & Skills» Natural Abilities:
Conduit- While Claire's native energy is night energy virtually none of her unique powers are fueled by it. Instead she harnesses the emotional energies of those around her, and can hold on to them for a considerable amount of time. She does this by creating a container within her soul, using night energy. The size of the container is limited by the amount of night energy she has, although due to the differences between night energy and emotional energy her container holds much more than one would expect. When Claire first developed this ability she had to actively use her night energy to gather emotional energy, but over time she's improved the container so that it acts like a magnet, passively absorbing any emotional energy that happens to pass by her. Originally, when she was less mature and had not fully grasped her powers Claire believed that only sexual energy would suffice, but as she's grown and mastered her powers more fully she now realizes the truth. The emotions of the many races inhabiting the realms are a powerful force, and any
of them can be harnessed and controlled, directed towards her own goals. The container also possesses a physical manifestation, which is a black substance that covers Claire's heart. To crack, break, or otherwise disturb this substance would greatly interfere with her ability to harness her energy.
Ecstasy- Claire rewards those that serve her well, as she realizes that this is one of the best ways to make them enjoy doing what she wants. By manipulating the emotions and physical senses of her target she can give them a short sensation of great pleasure.
Emotional Manipulation- While causing others to be attracted to her is useful Claire has more than that up her sleeve. She has a natural affinity towards this kind of ability, being from the twisted lover bloodline, and after extensive practice she's learned to do many more subtle things along the same line of thought. This power is by no means pure control, it is an extremely subtle manipulation that most would not even realize they were being affected by, but it is powerful nonetheless. Claire is usually able to pick up the most minute changes in the emotions of those around her, with this information she uses the emotional energy she has access to in order to alter her targets emotions in a way that would benefit her. This may not work as well if the target is experiencing extreme feelings at the moment, but Claire can first try to calm them to improve her odds. Because of the volatile nature of emotions, higher mental stats do not always mean that someone can resist Claire's influence, but they certainly stand a better chance. When facing severe mental and emotional trauma though, everyone becomes somewhat vulnerable.
Elemental Manipulation- Claire won't settle for just telling other living beings what to do, she even commands the elements. Unfortunately her emotional energy is not as well suited to this type of ability and it drains her rather rapidly. In truth, she only uses this ability because of the symbolism the word "spark" entails. In her base form lightning is the only element she has access to however -for the time being-.
Mental Domination- This is one of Claire's greatest and most relied upon abilities, and it works in concert with her emotional manipulation to a large degree. Usually after having manipulated her target to an emotional state that is very receptive of suggestion Claire will lace her words with what can only be considered a compulsion. Using the emotional energy that she has collected, either from the one she is speaking to or from elsewhere, she creates a transferable desire within her speech. It can of course be resisted, but the effect is so subtle that most would never notice it was even happening. At this time, and in her base state it is not extremely powerful, but by also inducing a receptive state in the person she wishes to compel Claire finds a great deal of success.
Panic- Claire has spent a great deal of time studying the "Sexual Burst" ability, and upon reverse engineering it has found that she is able to do the same thing with panic, with only slightly more effort. By sending out a slightly modified version of the chemicals used for the normal ability she can induce a slight sense of panic, which she then uses her emotional manipulation to amplify. This results in a stronger and faster acting ability than what she could do with emotional manipulation alone.
Seductive Aura- Claire has a naturally pleasing presence. While it's nothing overwhelming, those she focuses intently on may find themselves becoming more and more attracted to her over time. This is different from her intoxication ability, as that ability takes effect instantly and is a temporary thing. This takes time to show its effects, but is a long term connection that is in essence the same as a true relationship. This can of course be resisted, but it will be much harder to do so if the target's mental strength is not as developed as Claire's.The connection can also be weakened or broken in the same way normal relationships can.
Shapeshift- Claire naturally has the ability to take on a human form, but from that she has developed her own ability. Using the emotional energy that is latent within all areas(as over time places can become charged with Emotional Energy, depending on what has occured there. The small amount that is inherent to every place is enough to power Claire's shifting ability though, as it takes an exceedingly small amount of energy. If for some strange reason this isn't possible however, she can use her own energy to accomplish the same effect. With this ability she is able to change her appearance fairly drastically. This lasts until she sleeps, or until she decides to disspell the effect.
I. Racial AbilitiesBlood Rites
The Sueki live and die by the blood within their dark veins. Blood is not just a source of survival either. By taking blood and drawing certain patterns on surfaces, a Sueki can conjure a Blood Rite. These spells widen the strategic options a Sueki has in and out of combat. Upon finishing the blood drawing, the Sueki must then make contact with the pattern with their own blood and call upon the ability. This is often done by cutting the Sueki's own hand, feet etc and slamming them onto the pattern. A glow of darkness will emit from the bloody pattern and the spell is cast. Note that these patterns may be drawn upon the Sueki's own body. Some Sueki have even scarred their own bodies to create permanent patterns on their skin for easy access to these spells. The effects of a Blood Rite are increased in speed, size and strength (where applicable) based on the Sueki's Blood Rite skill. The actual pattern needed to be drawn is not specific and can be changed slightly so long as it fits the theme. The pattern also can be of any size, so long as it is distinguishable.Kumopu:
The ability to cause the target to burst into an artificial veil of shadows and dash to another targeted location within a few meters at extreme speeds and reform back to it's usual form. A sueki will always be able to move themselves regardless of size.
This ability when used upon themselves is the Sueki version of Shunpo and Sonido, granting them similar speeds but with a shadowy visual effect. During the moment the target affected is a shadow, they become physically invincible, cannot be interacted with and they cannot physically attack until they have left the shadowy state. The state will only last between the jumping point and landing point and can only last for a maximum of 1 second per Blood Rite skill level and the distance is 3m per skill level. Sentient creatures and the user can determine the full length of the Kumopu and force it to end early, but objects cannot themselves.
Kumopu is generated by drawing the shape of a Moon. The image cannot be symmetrical.Kumitsu:
The ability to cover the target in a veil of shadow that blocks off energy from the outside and from within. This allows anyones energy that has been covered in shadows to become undetectable by people outside of the veil. This gives off a visible aura of darkness that hides their appearance so it's rather obvious that they are there. However, if used at night or in very dark places, the affected target becomes very difficult to see as they blend into the darkness around them.
Kumitsu is generated by drawing any image, but then drawing a circle around it. The image cannot be symmetrical.Kumotabi:
The Blood Rite latches onto the darkness of shadows and of the night all around them, churning darkness around itself. After a few seconds of this the churning becomes an enveloping portal of shifting shadows that can expand and contract to hold multiple people. The size of the vortex is 10m in diameter for each skill level. A sueki may create this vortex on any surface but they must always remain in contact with it otherwise the portal will dissipate instantly, not function or pull anything in.
Once everyone has been highlighted by this ability, the user casts the Blood Rite a second time upon the pattern in the center of the vortex, channeling the vortex as the darkness pulls everyone within. This ability can suck in anything that is within the vortex and connected to anything that is currently in it so long as the entirety of the thing being pulled in can fit through the circumference of the vortex. This means a building could not be sucked into a small vortex just because the corner happens to be on it. The whole building must be able to fit and slip through. This does mean that verticly, there is no limit to how much that can fall inside.
Anybody that stands on the swirling darkness that isn't granted permission to travel by the user or denies their own desire to pass will not move at all when the vortex pulls.
During travelling, everyone falls through what seems to be an endless chasm of darkness lit by candles on black chandeliers. The distance required to make it to the other world is about a mile of falling. At the bottom is another swirling vortex that spits everyone out at the other end the other way up, so they emerge from the vortex head first and stop at their feet, standing. It is possible for a Sueki to force another person to move through the portal so long as their willpower is higher, but this requires triple the effort and can be fought against.
Kumotabi is generated by drawing a perfectly symmetrical image.Blood Dependency:
: All Sueki characters Are highly dependent on a constant intake of blood to survive. If this is ignored then the Sueki will start to age rapidly and turn to ash during the night of the 7th day without drinking blood. The withdrawal symptoms slowly start to becomes noticeable on the 3rd day and get worse leading up to the seventh when the Sueki will look about 100 years old. After drinking blood, the Sueki will feel full and no longer hungry then their body will gradually become more young over the same number of days they had not taken in blood.
The actual age it stops at changes depending on the person and can be altered as Sueki may have preferences on how they look. There are some that even choose to look elderly. Whilst blood starved, a Sueki will always feel hungry for anything so long as they do not drink blood.Mental Strength:
Sueki have strong bodies to handle their blood but also a decent amount of mental strength. This allows a Sueki to last much longer than a human when faced with dizziness and effects that instill mild mental weakness.Child of the Night:
Being outside in the light of the moon or covered in natural darkness and shadow enhances the Sueki's body. This allows a Sueki to react faster, move quicker, think more rapidly and generally become much more aware and agile than if the sun was out. This includes the shadowy veil of Kumitsu. Training and fighting in the moonlight or dark places enhances their potential and growth.Dark Vision:
Sueki are able to see in the dark. Everything a Sueki see's becomes black and white in darkness, allowing them to notice more when others cannot but also never lose sight of the shadows around them. Sadly, if a Sueki looks directly at a bright light then it shall momentarily blind them. Beyond this, Sueki are able to use darkness to track movement by focusing their mind on their prey. Moving in darkness is like being caught in a spiderweb to a Sueki. The stronger the Sueki is, the larger scope their influence will be.Solar Frailty:
Sueki have a very big weakness: The sun. They cannot come into contact with solar energy or sunlight otherwise the ageing process within their bodies starts to rapidly react and they will die within ten minutes (or say 20 of the sueki's posts). This makes it difficult for Sueki to fight or do anything while the sun is out and have a disadvantage against solar based characters. (Hit a Sueki with sunlight 20 times and they die)
Fire, electricity and other non-sunlight abilities do not cause this effect. Thus, candles, light-bulbs etc do not age them. How your Sueki falls apart into dust is up to you, but ten minutes will ultimately kill them. This can occur faster in varying intensities of sunlight, and on which parts of the body are afflicted. Only the body parts being soaked in sunlight are affected and the rest of the body is fine. Looking directly at the sun will blind the Sueki for 24 hours.Human State:
This is not a form in the slightest. Sueki are capable of entering a sort of meditation that shrinks their fangs so they appear to look like normal teeth. They also deny Night Energy access to their powers in this state of meditation. They can move and react as normal as though they were 5-5 tier humans. However, holding this state for too long eventually tires the user. They are still weakened by sunlight as normal and by revoking darkness to keep this form up, their aging process occurs more rapidly. the Human state is not recommended, but is there if necessary.
I. BloodlineTwisted Lover Bloodline
Tier 3Visual alterations:
Twisted Sueki must include up to 2 of the following in all of their appearances: Horns. An Arrow/Heart tipped tail. Hooves. Scales. Glowing Eyes. Forked Tongue.Urges:
Your sexual urges outweigh your need for blood. You can survive without taking in any blood, but it must be substituted with sex instead. This is measured by the number of orgasms the Sueki has. The Sueki is also incapable of becoming pregnant.Enhanced Taste:
You can determine the exact ingredients of something you taste and may learn about someone through the food they like to eat. Rotten and sickly substances will overloads the Sueki's senses momentarily.Enhanced Touch:
Being able to feel every bump and wave, you can read through touching patterns and even detect vibrations and their source.Enhanced Vision:
You can see clearly, even in dense locations at an impressive distance. Colours are more vivid and night vision is enhanced even further. The Sueki is even capable of long distance sight, noticing small details from up to 2 miles away.
The Sueki secretes an invisible veil of adrenaline that causes others around them to feel aroused and physically attracted to the Sueki. This can be used for the Sueki's own personal gain and may lower an opponents guard in combat. When used on powerful characters, the Sueki may be able to convince them to perform simple commands.
Tier 1Sexual Burst:
Your lust can create a blast of sexual adrenaline, empowering your physical speed and strength whilst allowing you to derive pleasure from things you do and force yourself beyond your limits. These bursts only occur when you are around that one thing that turns you on. This is control.Demonic:
Your blood is acidic to non-sueki and non-demons. You can detect if a person is a demon or not by simply looking at their aura. Demonic abilities deal slightly less damage to you.
I. Umbra State» Umbra State Appearance Written:
In her Umbra State Claire appears older than usual, about ten years older to be exact. Her normally bright red hair becomes a much darker shade, and curls slightly. Her horns and tail grow much larger and she sprouts wings to match. Her breasts grow a good deal, and her legs appear much longer. She also displays tribal style black marking on the inside and outside of her upper thigh. The only form of clothing she has in this form, if you can call it clothing, is the scale armor that naturally forms around some of her more vulnerable - and attractive - features. She can cause this armor to essentially dissolve at will, but why would she want to do that?» Umbra State Appearance: » Umbra State Shifter Appearance: » Umbra State Personality:
Claire's personality changes drastically when she enters her Umbra state. She doesn't consider this a bad thing, and has come to terms with both sides of herself, accepting them both equally. She isn't a completely different person however. She still has all of her memories, but thinks of them in a new light. Some personality traits remain and are amplified, while others become their polar opposites. Any traits that aren't listed or opposed below remain the same.
Calm- In her Umbra State Claire is much more reserved than usual. She isn't exactly lazy, but she does make an effort to conserve her strength. Even when excited into an extreme state she won't display much emotion on the surface.
Commanding- Claire's bossiness is one of the traits amplified by her transformation. In this state she is much more controlling, but not overly abrasive. She understands that more flies are caught with honey than with vinegar, so there's usually a bit of subtle manipulation going on as well.
Cruel- When she enters her Umbra State Claire not only does things to harm others because she is curios, but also because she genuinely enjoys it. This isn't to say that she can't still act kind, just that it is in no way a genuine emotion, and is most often manipulation of the most basic form.
Narcissistic- After transforming Claire is much more interested in her own looks than in her unreleased form. Most of the time she will go out of her way to stare if she catches a glimpse of herself, and is much more focused on her own needs and desires when in her Umbra State.
Sensual- Claire is always passionate, but when she enters her Umbra State this is kicked up to a whole new level. If excited enough she can become quite needy, one of the few ways she can be forced into a vulnerable state.
Sophisticated- While in her Umbra State Claire is not nearly as child-like as she is in her normal state. She exudes elegance, and is much more refined and serious. Many of her tastes change as well, as in her normal form she has much more child like interests. This includes things such as what she enjoys to eat, what subjects or topics she is interested in, and even her taste in music. This is the most drastic change Claire undergoes when entering her Umbra State.» Umbra State Benefits:
Complete Mental Domination- Upon entering this state Claire's ability to compel is greatly enhanced. Perhaps this is due to her more alluring appearance, but it is also due to the fact that in her Umbra State she has a greater control over Emotional Energy, and she has a greater ability to influence the state of mind of those around her, making the job easier in the first place. Along with whatever suggestion she may happen to implant, the desire to worship is embedded in every word she speaks while using this power.
Elemental Resistance- Due to the change in her skin Claire is much more resistant to lightning and fire after entering her Umbra State. It doesn't take any concentration on her part, it's simply a passive effect that is always active. She could survive quite severe shocks, and even a short dip in lava in this form.
Elevated Panic- Due to the fact that Claire has greater control over her powers in this state she can target more than one person at a time with her panic ability. Depending on the difference in tier between herself and her targets she can use this ability on between 7 and 2 opponents. If the opponents are too high level for her to use the ability on two of them she would simply use her original panic ability, which is more catered towards individuals. Regardless of how far below Claire her opponents are in tier she can never cause more than 7 of them to experience this.
Enhanced Ecstasy- In this state Claire is able to use her ability with more refinement. She can curate, and cater it to a specific individual, rather than it just being a broad thing. This allows her to generate much more intense feelings of pleasure that work best for that one person.
Enhanced Elemental Manipulation- When in her Umbra State Claire's control over lightning is amplified multiple times over, and she gains the ability to control fire as well, though not as effectively. Using either of these drains her of her energy extremely rapidly though, as this is quite different than her normal powers. She practiced controlling fire because of the symbolism of the word "flame". This is only used as a last resort.
Flight- Due to the fact that she grows large wings, it should be obvious that in her Umbra State Claire has the ability to fly. She does eventually get tired, but she can keep it up for a decent amount of time before she gets worn out.
Illusion- This isn't your standard illusion, and Claire really has very little control over it, even though she's mastered the ability. That is just its nature. What this does is manifest the targets most desired object, or perhaps fantasy, for Claire and the target to view (no one else can see). The objective isn't usually to fool the target, merely to show them a representation of their greatest desire, even if they may not be aware of it consciously. In fact, Claire would be hard pressed to make this seem real, although if she were dead set on it she could attempt to do so by collecting a larger portion of emotional energy from the target, as the more she collects the more in sync she is with the person. Three posts for beginner, six for adept, nine for advanced, twelve for master, and fifteen for grand master. She can also overcharge the ability to make it have an even greater chance of success by collecting more emotional energy from the same target than is necessary, but even then nothing is certain. One caveat is that she may only use emotional energy from the target in question to perform this ability, so if someone doesn't want to contribute to this effect then they would be best off keeping their emotions in check.
