|Subject Post 1Subject: Sibling Funtime Powers [Calypso abilities] Thu Jan 31, 2019 10:55 am|| |

Calypso Asthavon» Link To Character: https://www.platinumhearts.net/t19256-calypso-asthavon-danava-of-dreams-and-nightmares-approved-2-5#123965» Upgrading:
Blood Angel: Blood Angel is the name that Algos gave this particular ability that came with marking her sister Algos in their love. Being that her sibling has a high volume of Algos's blood coursing through her veins, the instinct of Algos to protect and love her kin is still invested in that same blood. Ergo, from this deep sentimental meaning of wanting to possess this love for herself, the blood acts as a protective mechanism to defend Cali's body. The primary ways in which this bond is utilized are marked below as a result of Cali and Algos's interactions with one another.
Mental Foundation: Above all else, the blood of Algos is meant to be utilized as a stabilizer given Cali's unsteady grasp on her inner self. Therefore, since Algos has a more resolute will and desire for this world, she makes use of that trait by giving her a resistance against mental assaults or emotional influences. That does not mean she is immune from them, but the blood of Algos makes it immensely hard to penetrate without a high volume of focused effort. And, even with that effort, it may not have the fully intended effects before this blood reacts to whoever is stimulating this mental assault. (whether that be outright attacking, Algos showing up or whatever have you is a whole another story.)
This was done in order to protect her sister from being so emotionally and mentally fragile in Algos's mind. She did not want to see her kin broken down in the future by another creature who may be able to use these exploits against her, so she wanted to at least put some kind of security in there given the fact that she has the prowess to be able to try and prevent that outcome from happening. Thus, this is her way of protecting and providing for her younger sister as Algos's responsibility and sentiment weigh heavily in this ability. As she refuses to let her sister down no matter the cost.
Telepathic Link: There is a telepathic link between both Cali and Algos because of the bond that they share. This private communication network allows them to exchange different feelings, thoughts, and memories with each other if the other is open to sharing all that they are to one another. It is able to transcend even other worlds; provided there is nothing that is actively trying to prevent them from communicating with one another. If this connection is cut off, however, the blood will still be able to act on its own based on the deep-rooted instinct of Algos that is planted in it and will do it's best to give her or Cali the last location of either sibling so that they may track the other down if such an event occurred.
Possessive Enhancement: While the blood of Algos has bonded with Cali, it will allow for her possessive magic to become more enhanced while she is under its influence. The reason for this is because it is in demonic lore that if a demon is to ingest the organs and extract of a more powerful demon than itself that their strength can become augmented. Thus, given the fact Algos willingly allowed for herself to be devoured by Cali during the time she marked her, it stands to reason that she may have an increase in her possessive magic.
This can potentially make her magical spells/prowess doubled in strength with all of Algos's memories, instinct and sub-conscious power flowing through her body to help guide her sister toward being a proficient magic user. It should also allow her to have a faster inclination towards having a knack and grasp for magic as she trains in the future to rapidly grow this skill given most in the Asthavon family have a stronger leaning toward magical insight.
Blood Core: It will take some training to truly grasp this, but there is a core of Algos's energy that is dwelling in the depths of Cali's being. This cluster of energy has enough output of demonic power to be equivalent to a 1-3 character or so. The reason for this is because of the fact that there was such a copious amount of blood and extract that was consumed and devoured by Cali from Algos that it mutated and began to forge this deep-rooted seed of power within her being to further protect her.
The primary way this core of energy is supposed to be utilized is so that one ability/attack per turn can be used in an effort to help further enhance her strength until she is strong enough to not need the core and outgrow it. So she must manually focus on this core of blood within herself to summon forth this power and infuse it into her attacks, defenses or whatever else have you. An illustration of how this ability can be used is that she can merge this core of energy into a burst of demonic energy to try and release enough energy which can destroy a chunk of a city to protect herself.
The focal drawback with this, however, is that it will exhaust her body if abused too much. This can be shown by her feeling tired, sweaty, dizzy and otherwise strained if her body is already damaged from combat. So the side effects won't be felt if she is in 100% health and stamina; making it so that this gives her the advantage toward the beginning of any battle. As the fight progresses, this might become more daunting and tireless to wield given the fact it's a power beyond her current level of skill and ability. So, if she isn't 100% there mentally and physically, it will naturally become more unstable and unreliable to call on. So it must be wielded with caution, care, and precision.
Matter cannot be created nor destroyed, only it’s state of being changed. Unearthing this ability under the push of her elder sibling, Calypso is able to spawn an entity to be used to assimilate the energy of other beings. Not necessarily eat, but remove the energy from another thing or person and convert it into her own. She can only accomplish such a thing by spawning separate entities from herself, which take the form of something tick or leech-like in order to fulfill the task. She molds this creature from her own flesh, and thus her own energy reserves, and it is sent to drain whoever or whatever the target is.
The creature latches onto the most immediately convenient spot, sinks it’s teeth in, drain energy, and latch off if danger is imminent, forcibly ripped off (though this causes physical damage to the tearer if forced off, since it would be biting down on their flesh), or it becomes ‘full’ (The creature cannot endlessly feed). And then, when it gets what it can, it rushes to return to it’s maker, normally leaping into Calypso’s chest and re-fusing with her body. However, even if it can feed off of inanimate objects, it has a far easier time assimilating energy (And as a result making the energy harmless to her) from being with a will. Energy that isn’t completely assimilated can have negative effects upon her, depending on it’s strength and intended effects.
However, the creature cannot totally suck something dry in, say, a combat situation. Cali would have near to no time to possibly make enough to accomplish that in a fight without severely taxing her mental and energy reserves. It’s best used as a method to snag as much as it can carry and take it back to her.
Now, Calypso doesn’t have to fully rely on these creatures to assimilate energy, she can perform the transference with her own body with no seeming end to the amount she can realistically take in (before overindulgence effects take hold), same rules attributed to the creatures applied to herself.
However, at the very bottom line, attempted assimilation of more energy-focused, willful beings (such as demons, or those heavily in tune with their own energy), can be potentially dangerous, as feeding off the wrong being who can have fluent control of their energy outside of their bodies, or generally very corruptive energy, can then run wild in the girl’s body unless expelled.
An ability pressured out into the open of her awareness through her sibling’s hand, Calypso can quite literally ask for and grant wishes. Though there are very heavy rules and limitations to this ability, due to it scratching at the bounds of reality in some contexts. How this ability works is, Calypso wants something to happen (And she has to ACTUALLY want it to happen for it to work, so in most cases there’s no accidental wishes), focuses her energy, and her energy independent of her works to make that thing possible. These wishes cannot do the impossible, only make the impossible situation be changed into a possible one. Meaning, she can’t wish that the vacuum of space was hospitable, but she can wish for that beer off the shelf.
Though this ability more works with cause and effect, karmic effects. For instance, this can be used for healing, but she has to actually be able to see and interact with the person she wishes to heal. If they were say, a demon, her wish to heal them would basically be her energy forcing the demon’s energy to focus and heal that wound. If it were a human she had to heal, it’s a trickier area and entirely dependent on the wound. She can force the body to accelerate the healing (While probably being twice as draining as if she did it on something that was capable of healing itself), but it would leave a rather nasty scar where the wound was due to forcing the existing cells to clamp together, along with being rather painful. In cases where the wound can’t be healed, it’s possible that if she states her wish correctly, she can turn the being into a demon or at least partially demon in order for them to survive the wound and heal on their own (though if this were to happen they’d develop abilities similar to her own, being more mental and horroristic, along with adapting some nightmareish traits).
Making more drawbacks clear, Calypso has to be specific on what she wants, stating it aloud for her intentions to be clear as crystal. If the wish isn’t possible, nothing happen. If the wish is possible, visible purple flame-like energy emerges from the girl’s most immediately used arm. Calypso cannot wish for something like someone’s heart to stop palpitating, or for a Jedi mind-trick type of thing; she cannot infringe upon another’s ability to live, or sanity with these powers, the extent of her control of people being only healing or calling to them, as they have their own energy that she has to actively push against. Objects are far easier for her to affect since they tend to have no will or energy of their own.
