I. Personality Traits
Setsuna is understood as a type of individual who doesn't appear what she seems. There's an on going conflict in the center of her mind, whether she'll admit to it or not. The obviousness can be detected by her eyes, despite being percieved as serious and frightening. They are a set of eyes that seeks for peace and a companion who understands her. Setsuna looks at a reflection of her old self, disgusted by how weak and pitiful she was. And how sorry she felt by not being what her father had sought after. Setsuna tends to shut her eyes away from what it could've been a peaceful life. In an attempt to convince herself that the life she chosed is the life that's meant for her.
Not pleased by her naive younger version who, was positive about the way the world was. Setsuna seeks pleasure out of killing, and the only way she can find peace is through manslaughter. But, this doesn't mean she's completely at the deep end. Setsuna is capable of having a care free lifestyle, but being confined in one place doesn't suit her. Setsuna is always in and out of someone's life, as cutting of ties became a full time job. Setsuna doesn't make room for relationships, because of the potential results that she'll revert back to her weaker state. She's always on the move, so much that sleep became a forgotten concept.
But, she does take time to gather up enough energy to, resume the rest of the day. Setsuna is a night owl and does more relaxing during the day time. She's less likely to go out and look for fun during the day, as the day is more reserved for down time. Setsuna performs at her best when, the strong gathers under the moon. She's a sucker for rumors, and is prone to sniff them out. Setsuna is a guardian but only when it counts. At first she doesn't acknowledge the reasons for protecting someone. And finds the idea to be bothersome. Setsuna can pretend to be a soulless person who only cares about killing. But somewhere inside of her heartless attitude.
She does wish to be in a warm and welcoming environment. Free from being seen as a murderous fiend who hides her true self under the nightsky. At times she's slow to come around and while most would give up trying. She doesn't find friendship to be all that bad, despite being a stubborn, cool and classy girl. Setsuna can come off as informal, even around her superiors. She seemingly walks around with a relaxed expression, whenever she's around familiar faces. Setsuna can be quite timid when she's faced with the unknown. Oftentimes wearing a serious face, despite having to be worried about what comes next. She likes to keep an eye on change, and focus on potential threats like a watch dog.
She's easily bothered by the eyes of onlookers, which is why Setsuna prefers to avoid eye contact. She familiar with the criminal aspect of most parts of the world. Considering the fact she feels most at home where illegal activity is the norm. Setsuna keeps an eye out for individuals who peeks her interest. The people in question are of high prestige and privileged, like the asthavons. The reason for her interest in them is due to a special link, one of the members has on Setsuna. Who she must find and unravel the missing pieces of her life. Setsuna keeps tabs on those that are more familiar with the family than, She is. In order to keep track of their activity and find the opportunity to catch one. And possibly learn more information about them.
Setsuna finds herself to be rivaled against worse beings imaginable. Thanks to her interest in killing and using killing as a method to relieve her stress. Setsuna likes a rival who can push pass her boundaries as a demon. To see what is beyond her limit and discover new ways to gain strength. Setsuna wants someone who can release her hidden talent.
Setsuna is convinced that she isn't a blood thirsty killer, despite being told otherwise. Setsuna likes to maintain authority for whom she's willing to protect. By reducing the chances of them getting hurt. Setsuna uses threatening words and rough dialect, as if she was a boy. And avoid getting herself too occupied in the thought of furthering ones relationship. Which is why she speaks informally and keeps conversations short.
She avoids indulging in killing for a short while, to the point where her senses are overtaken by the desire to, release others from their pain. She's a worthwhile partner when two goals are aligned with each other. Setsuna doesn't fuss when it comes to being under one's command, but she isn't too comfortable with people who likes to be privy. Setsuna isn't in control and feels as if she's being piloted by an unknown entity. Exploiting one of her deepest desires and act out of her own will. Setsuna is a good listener, if someone is looking for another who wouldn't mind talking their ear off. She is somewhat able to perform the job. Setsuna is always hard on herself, believing that she could've had a better life if, she wasn't weak enough to rely on her murderous streak. Setsuna keeps her eyes out for people who need those who they can trust. However, while trust is an interest of hers. Setsuna can't always promise that the trust she builds will last. As she fears that one day, all of those bonds will be severed. In order to grow as an individual and continue to pursue a world without lies. Setsuna conceals her ability to feel worried by having a careless attitude. She convinces herself that there's nothing to worrh about, until more situations arise. Setsuna is prone to get into fights if her opinions aren't understood. She's capable of backing up her words, but won't acknowledge the potential danger laying ahead. The choices she makes, whether dumb or worth the trouble will come after the deed is done. Setsuna hides away her fears by utilizing a cocky attitude. To ensure that she doesn't appear as weak, and fully capable of dealing with tasks.
I. Character History
She was a contradiction who wasn't meant to be. A manifestation of all the worlds most convincing lies and the horrible truth. She was convinced that her purpose was to live and continue to grow. A purpose where she can experience how the world can continue to live through lies. She was tricked to believe that if there was a chance to understand the truth. A world without any lies would've been achievable. However, much to her distraught. The nature of man was blinded by the truth. An eternal punishment where lies are humanities comfort. Setsuna wanted to figure out a way to break free from those lies. To acknowledge and reach for the truth. She was given the means to dig through the barriers of fiction and reality.
Find the source of all the lies and bend them into the truth. Setsuna grew up with qualities that would clash with each other. Her consciousness created a difficult lifestyle where such contradictions weren't acceptable. She was force to choose sides where her traits as a gentle, courteous demon. Is at a constant war with her more ruthless and uncaring, fiendish nature. Luckily as she had gotten older, vile qualities were more recognizable. They were something that her demon kin could accept. She was lying to herself that in order to be allowed to exist as a demon. The time to rid her weaknesses was now, if she ever hopes to have people to follow. Setsuna learned throughout her existence that lying is a means to protect oneself.
She was convinced that if anyone learned the truth and revealing their secrets. Nobody will like them and feel as if they were a horrible accident. She easily followed the rules and how the world function. Her mentors teachings, was how she had been able to set a path. Not long before Setsuna would realize the terrible truth that the world is rotten to its core. It had been a long time since she experienced a life without lies. After being manipulated and tricked for so long, Setsuna was able to harness, and channel her belief in the concept of a world free from lies. It was easy to laugh at her unrealistic ideals, but she was gifted from neovata, and use that gift to meld together the lies told by peopls. And reveal the truth in order to set humanity free from its own curse.
The idea was worth striving for, as she continued to search for like minded individuals, and convince them to go reach for the truth that hides away a their lies. However, as her journey to create a lie free world. Setsuna was caught in the webs of her own mistakes. She developed a desire for killing, rather than being the one to protect and defend those that needed defending. Her future as a powerful demon was sought and controlled. Just as when she was forbidden by her master to never harm. They were a means to seal away her twisted ideals. But, she was easily persuaded by someone to indulge in her killer instinct. She was turned into someone's puppet who, aimlessly kills anything who sets her off. Setsuna was forced to abandon her home, in order to protect her family and friends.
She wandered about, clueless to her true desire to accept the urge to kill. It wasn't long before Setsuna had gotten to taste what blood was like. She was clouded by her senses, like a wolf attracted by a sweet scent. She was quick to obtain a feel of joy. As if she was freed from a prison, built by her mentors rules in order to protect himself. Setsuna was controlled, and easily took apart the bodies of those who crossed her path. She hid herself away after the fact and found her way in the arms of a shadow fall operative. Setsuna stumbled across them as she made her stay at one of the lower levels of hell. She was convinced to leave behind her old life and start anew as one of them.
It was then on, she could feel a link with one of the asthavons. As she had gotten familiar with her new friend. Setsuna had enable herself to understand them and established a way to find this hidden link. However, while she wanted to learn about the asthavons and who and why she's attracted to them. Setsuna had to deal with the unknown and the unknown is the mastermind who kept digging deeper into her consciousness. In an attempt to weaponize her urges, and kill as pleasurable activity. Setsuna managed to keep control whenever she's around a member of shadow fall. Setsuna figured out how to deal with her urges. She took her urges to one of the darker parts of demon world. Where she was able to make a living there. Now she would have to focus on finding that link and figure out who's behind her slaughterings.
» Kagiri No Tsurugi
The blade that was handed to her as a gift. Setsuna was given this sword after her days of training under her previous mentor. She uses it for non lethal purposes, by keeping the sword in its sheath. Should the need to resort to lethal methods arise, Setsuna will instead use the blade against tougher opponents. However, as time went on. The sword accumulated enough of a reputation to be viewed as a cursed blade. A sword which speaks to their wielder in a dreadful, hypnotic tone. She could hear the voices while its released. In truth, kagiri no tsurugi is one of the many cursed swords to be brought into demon world.
Her sword feeds on the source of her desires. Which is why she's hesitant to unleash the blades full potential. As Setsuna runs the risk of being under the blades influence. Kagiri was once forged by a bladesmith, residing in the lower layers of hell. The blade was one of many cursed swords spread across demon world. Kagiri was obtained by her master and had been sought by rivals. Wishing to use the sword only for it's strength. Her master saw something deep within the sword, rather than the strength behind the wicked blade. Her master was warned about the potential risk, but bought it to challenge his instincts as a true sword master. The material was said to be a mixture of a once living girl who was slain. She now resides inside of the sword by providing an external energy source. That fuels the effects bestowed upon the holder. Other material used were a reactive mineral founded in a mine, with the smell of the deceased. The mineral was described as reactive; due the potential outcome from the mineral to explode if handled carelessly.
A simple combat knife that she keeps tucked away, inside of the sleeves of her jacket to use as a surprise attack.
I. Natural Abilities & Skills
» Natural Abilities:
She had possessed an recognizable talent for swordsmanship. In her early life, she was much more refined and showed gentle movement behind her strikes. Setsuna showed noteworthy skills that reminded her former teacher, how the gentle waves pushed amongst the shore. After succumbing towards her murderous tendencies, she adopted a careless and tricky style of swordsmanship. Where her attacks are more unorthodox with speed, and aggression becoming troublesome to keep up. Unlike her former self, Setsuna lacks patience as she's increasingly grows to aim for lethal blows. Setsuna makes use of the twin sword technique, when the situation calls for her to be more prone to her senses. Setsuna can rely on using her opponents momentum to counter. She deals blows by understanding the body of her opponent. To strengthen her own defense, in order to be ready for an onslaught of attacks. While in her blinded state, however; she is much more reliant on abusing a weak spot on her opponent. Setsuna focuses on one thing and that is to cripple them. To ensure that they have no hope to attack her anymore. Setsuna would use her blade if met with a challenge, but if not. She will instead use her stabbered to fight.
Setsuna has a unique way in the use of curse magic. The way she uses them is by combining her practice with hand seals. A serious of drawing many hand signs in order to unleash their true potential. She's capable of creating curses that binds her opponent, by creating a mark on their body that grows the more they use their powers. The end result will be a burning pain. She uses her curse magic to subdue the target. And limit how much they can move. However, she isn't too creative or versatile with her curses. Due to the fact that, she didn't have a suitable teacher. So she lacks the knowledge and skills to perform larger feats with them.
She's capable of picking up trails left by other people. Setsuna can notice the differences of how certain terrian is changed, based off their interaction with the various footprints. She can tell apart ones footprints by examining them. Determining the size and telling them apart between a males footprint and a females. She's capable of noticing how animals react in order to figure out if something is amidst. She does this simply through understanding the way nature works. To be one with it, one would have to constantly interact with said nature. This method enables her to pick up on behavioural patterns by honing in on her instincts.
As a secondary weapon, she's much more prone to use her knife when going out for assassination jobs. While her sword is reserved for an appropriate use, her knife is reserved for the dirty aspect of her life. Setsuna wields exceptional skills to the point where enough practice, will grant her capabilities to use any type of knife. Such as using an ordinary kitchen knife to combat in tight areas. Her knife skills is used by synchronizing with her speed. Capable of dashing with hasty precision in her strikes.
She had spent much time out of demon world to built up her knowledge in other languages. Setsuna is capable to understand a unique set of languages, and provide the means to translate them into her own native tongue. It's useful when others doesn't understand a certain language. Setsuna may come across a few phrases, and butcher them due to how little time she spends around humans.
Her demonic energy, while vast and holds the potential to fill up to the brim. Is quite unstable and could go out of control. Setsuna's demonic energy is like someone violently pressing down on a keyboard. The amount of untamed energy she has, can cause her to experience short instances of bloodlust. Setsuna's energy is toxic and unhealthy. She's inexperienced at keeping together her composer at times. Anytime she would use her energy, Setsuna begins to feel as though she's not in control. She has fears of turning against her own comrades, should the time come. The energy within, is like a maze as the soul is trapped behind a large door, seperating herself from grasping an understanding of who she is.
I. Possesisve Powers
» Possessive Powers: Contradiction
Setsuna has the ability to manipulate the truths and lies by flipping the way they're interpreted. By doing so, she bends the nature of a truth and a lie to the point where the nature of an object or being becomes a fact. This ability provides her the means to change the central core of any being or object. To use this ability, she is required to possess some type of knowledge on a specific target. If an object were to be something flat, and the fact that the object is flat. She would need to understand why the object is flat and how it became flat. By understanding the nature, she can bend the truth of the object into something else. The truth is, the object is flat. The lie is, the object isn't flat. Once the truth is turned into a lie, then their natural structure begins to shift. The shift occurs as she is utilizing her willpower to make a convincing lie.
The lie becomes convincing enough for the lie to transform into the undeniable truth. While most people are naturally attuned with the lies, and easily accept them in a blink of an eye. The truth becomes more gruesome and painful to accept. She can change the nature of things, so long as she can understand how they function and what makes them unique. This allows her to use truth and lies as a weapon. To manipulate what the target percieve what's real or fake. What's reality and what's fiction. She activates the ability by applying a statement that was once true and uses a what if statement. The activation will occur once a symbol emerges from the palm of her hand. The symbol grants her a means to apply effects where her lies become the truth, granting her statements the ability to apply certain effects. An example would be "what if that rock was a grenade" as she picks up a throwable rock and toses the rock in her opponents direction. The opponent has the option to react in a way for the statement to be true, by displaying any type of movement.
The rock will detonate. In the case of inflicting beings: "what if i wasn't real at all, just a figure based on your own imagination" if attacked, her body dissolves and a link made into a beings subconscious is made. She invades their mind by planting seeds of false information. Messing with how they perceive the world and creating a land where the lie is the truth and the truth is the lie. She's able to convince beings who's willpower is of a beginner level and adept. The ability enables her to make a convincing lie, so long as the target in question doesn't know how said thing works. Though, she's capable of bypassing this weakness if a link between her and an object is made. Where only she knows how an object functions and shape the way an object works. However, she can only shape the object so long as the object still has their appearance. Such as a piller and coming into contact with that piller will enable her to use said piller as a way to attack. By bending the form in a way for the piller to stretch and use as a long range weapon. Another example includes someones weapon (spiritual weapons are ineffective). She can create a contradiction in a weapons capabilities: if a weapon was meant to inflict damage. Then the weapon would only inflict half of the damage instead in full. She would have to already taken damage for the effect to apply.
As it was meant to be used to damage, Setsuna in full instead of half. This effect can only be applied once before using it again for two posts. The rock being an already existing material and by pouring her essence into the rock. She's allowed to apply a single effect at a time. When it comes to using her ability on those with willpower of advanced and higher. The ability becomes difficult to persuade her targets. Creating room of doubt and rejecting the lie altogether. She's only allowed to manifest within a person's mind after understanding their nature and their connection with others. Only then she's able to apply the effect on herself and manipulate the way her targets understand the world. Her ability to change how a target understands something lasts for two posts. The ability isn't instant as she is, required to spend some time with a being or object, and once the information is well understood, and the process becomes less of a task.
Her main objective is to shield the victims eyes from seeing the truth, by convincing them that the truth is a ruthless killer. As the truth makes no exceptions, allowing the truth to be a hard pill to swallow. The ability drains her psyche after a number of usage without a proper train of thought. Any lack of creativity will expose her to experience a short burst of migraines. Not to mention the amount of detail and information she must store. As the ability works on knowledge and understanding. The creation of twisting the truth comes from knowing the truth. To understand how it feels to be lied to for many years.
I. Possessive Drive
Note: Demons can have anywhere from one to three Possessive Drive forms. So just repaste it if your demon has more than one.
» Possessive Drive Appearance:
» Possessive Drive Benefits:
In this form, her body undergo a structural change. The change is noticeable by examining her flow of movement. Setsuna is like a deflated balloon in a sense, as she's able to bend her body in ways that would be described as disturbing. The increase in flexibility allows her to be as evasive as possible. Setsuna has increase her chances of performing unorthodox like attacks. As she twists, bends and turns like a ballerina on the battlefield.
She's able to adapt to a person's fighting style, based on the amount of time spent while fighting her opponents. It's made possible to understand and digest her opponents attacks, by going completely defense. While going on the defensive end, she takes the necessary risk of putting her own body in trouble. In order to come up with a solution, and act on her own methods.
She's quite the sturdy combatant in this state. In this state, she's somewhat confident in taking dangerous attacks head on. While in her regular state, she is less likely to take on risks. But in this state, Setsuna has build up the courage to take the pain and keep pushing forward. She's capable of handling some attacks from point blank rage, but not to the point where she can brush the damage off. The effect would still be there, as the pain will be noticable when out of this state. Suffering the consequences of her carelessness.
Enhanced Visual Prowess:
Her visual capability is enhanced in such a way for which, an opponents quick speed and ability feels as though their movement had slowed down. Setsuna is able to follow along and keep up with her opponents. The enhancement makes it possible to predict, and be on guard at all times. Though, she would still need to rely more on other areas than, her eyes in order to catch her targets.

Curse Magic: This ability is too vague to approve as it is right now. It’s fine to be able to utilize magic to bind and opponent but you need to flesh out what these curse seals actually do and define how she puts them on an opponent. Is it direct contact? Can she manipulate them through her possessive influence? Is the range of her ability to put these on people scale with her possessive magic? How is a sealing curse different from one that causes burning to an opponent. Can she cause opponents to gradually become weaker? None of these questions are really fleshed out enough for something as potentially potent as curse magic. If you want an example of (vague) curse magic, I’d say go take a look at kitarunes app to get an idea of how to balance this.
Contradiction: First, I’d say this would be ineffective on individuals that have GM mental deduction and basically ineffective on master individuals. I’d also like you to add a clause stating the more complex and object the longer it takes for her to understand it (I.E she might be able to manipulate a rock almost instantly, but for something like a cruise ship, it’d take many turns for her to understand how to use this ability on it) Secondly, You need to define (or give examples) of some of the generic affects that she can utilize with this while she’s doing it. I’d also like a clause thrown in for her ability to halve the damage of a spirit weapon which states if there is a substantial difference in power this ability will become less effective. (by substantial I mean if she was 3 tier trying to use this on a 0 tier there’d be markedly less affect. ) I’d also say that you should add a scale for (willpower or mental deduction, your pick) that shows how many times this can be used on a person in a thread before they become resistant to it. It should also be noted that without express player permission you could not use this on say another players soul or something akin to their zanpakuto spirit directly.
