» Name Of Character:
Yaksha Dokuja» Link To Character: https://www.platinumhearts.net/t16789-yaksha-approved-1-3#108780» Upgrading:
Adding the following power:Pleroma
: As a hollow, Yaksha's existence is one of countless pieces; made up of a million million different souls, driven by a single unified will, Yaksha is able to exert influence over the essence making himself up, to a level that puts even other hollows to shame. Each soul inside of him remains alive and sentient, and at a moment's notice Yaksha is able to swap himself with any other soul inside of his body, affording him various benefits. Most notable is that, for the duration of this ability, the entity known as "Yaksha" is no longer present, or even alive. Any persistent effects on him are suppressed, including ones that target based on the target's soul, or their conceptual root. When tapping into the Pleroma, Yaksha himself is gone, exactly the same as if a second hollow had taken his place in the fight. The effects still return when he resumes his base form, meaning he can rarely make use of it more than once per fight, unless given significant time to recouperate.
The second benefit is that, by allowing himself to become an aggregate soul in the collective rather than the one in charge, new talents and memories are brought to life; while tapping into the Pleroma, Yaksha is able to recall and on some level tap into the powers of the souls he's consumed. Were he to allow a shinigami control over the collective for a short period, his spirit energy would give off that of a shinigami's, making it very easy to believe that he is another person entirely. In addition, his skills are re-allocated slightly, at the time of declaring the soul in control of the Pleroma.
Upon activating the Pleroma, Yaksha's Focus immediately drops by one tier, and he can pick any general skill to increase by one skill. Every three posts thereafter, his Focus is reduced by one more tier, as the aggregate sea of souls erodes at his ability to remember himself. If his Focus were ever to reach the point where it were to go below Untrained, he would simply cease to exist, his mind and memories lost forever, and his existence reverting to that of a Gillian. There is no known method to restore a hollow who has devolved that thoroughly, meaning it is surely the end for him.
The cooldown before Yaksha can invoke the Pleroma again is the same duration of time that he invoked it, and increases by two posts each time he uses it in the same combat thread.» Why:
Claiming my second OTY reward, as outlined in this post: https://www.platinumhearts.net/t19029-2017-oty-prize-claims» Extra:
I realize this is a pretty heavy ability, and I'm happy to alter it as the staff feel is necessary, but given the nature of fights on PH, and the fact that few people will allow him the build-up time this ability requires, I feel there's no reason it couldn't be balanced
