» Name Of Character:
Alex» Link To Character: https://www.platinumhearts.net/t18322-alexander-vaugrenard-4-5» Upgrading:Tier Upgrade:
4-5 -> 2-5Skill Upgrades:
-Willpower -> Advanced
-Martial Skill -> AdeptRemoved Abilities:
-Heat ResistanceModified Abilities:
-Maiden Masher: Post limit and timing requirements moved to Sweetheart Slasher.New Abilities:
-Sweetheart Slasher: A refinement of Maiden Masher's heat buildup, this is something of a secondary usage that Alex has developed after repeatedly noticing that this heat did not stop at his own body. Indeed, the heat that comes from Maiden Masher's usage reaches temperatures which far exceed the flames it produces, and so rather than simply venting it willy-nilly and wasting that time, Alex has realized he can use it in a far more productive way; by pounding the shit out of whoever his victim is in the first place.
Due to Maiden Masher's volatile nature, overuse will eventually cause Alex's body to break down and, in addition to causing burns, may possibly even send him into the Riot of the Blood. When using Maiden Masher, Alex may only use it up 3 times within one post before it begins to cause him injury, and may never accumulate more than 10 total usages of it in one thread without venting the excess heat. If he exceeds either of these numbers, burns will start to spread across his body, starting from his hands, and if he reaches 2 usages beyond either of these limits without cooling down, he will be sent into the Riot of the Blood. However, for each of those usages which are not vented, Alex can focus all of the excess heat into his extremities. At even one un-vented usage, Alex's fingertips become able to tear through thinner or weaker metals like paper, and he can ignite a flammable substance, such as a cigarette or tinder, simply by touching it. At the maximum amount, of 10 uses, the heat built up within his body is so extreme that, in all likelihood, most things he touches are simply burned or melted away. His hands are capable of clawing through all but the most durable substances with ease, incinerating them upon contact, and his very footsteps could turn sand underfoot into glass in an instant.
Naturally, applying his own heat in this manner is not without its own dangers. Maiden Masher is already capable of destroying his body, and those body parts which are filled with heat begin to rapidly degrade, actually quite horrifyingly quickly when one considers the level of durability Alex normally possesses. Because of this extreme damage to his body, Alex can only strike with one extremity per thread through Sweetheart Slasher, and any further usage of it, even without Sweetheart Slasher filling it, would cause quite literally irreparable damage.» Why:
Alex has gone through not-insignificant development in his tenure on Platinum Hearts, but has never been formally upgraded in his nearly 2 years on site. During that time, however, he has fought a Knightslave and lived, been physically accosted by Desmond Hayden and wrestled him on even footing (though with some restraint on Hayden's part), and trained multiple times under Ulv Auber, moving her rock designed not to be moved, and being taught to properly focus in on his fury. Additionally, he has demonstrated an overwhelming tenacity in the face of adversity, refusing to give up even on the most relatively mundane of goals after setting his mind to it. A full list of threads in which Alex has displayed growth or physical strength is here:https://www.platinumhearts.net/t18361-oahu-a-hawaiian-vacationhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t18620-it-wasn-t-a-good-gamble-alex-yakshahttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t19706-round-one-start-privatehttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t20081-help-a-brother-outhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t20090-down-in-margaritaville-openhttps://www.platinumhearts.net/t20063-the-rough-rawk-open-ish» Extra:
As none of these threads strictly and directly relate to his energy having grown, but I believe his development has merited such, the source of said energy is Nelliel through her ability to share it through bodily fluid. I am happy to discuss the extent of how that impacts Alex or the energy in question.

[mod] After reviewing all the linked threads and deliberating, I feel that since Alex has not gotten a formal upgrade in a lengthy period of time and that this is a cumulative upgrade, as well as the threads in question along with the progress the character has made over this period of time, that this upgrade is reasonable.
