I'm done for now. Enjoy!
Name: Vance Ndiaye
Race(s)~ African American / Nigerian (Demon Host)
Appearance- He stands at 5’11” and weights around 205 lbs. He has brown eyes and salt and pepper dreads. He’s got the build of an athletic young adult that is actively training. He’s got something of a muscular figure, and he’s quite strong for his weight. His skin is a very light beige complexion. His eyes are green, and his ears are slightly larger and pointier than the norm. He mainly wears jeans, blue or black, a novelty tee shirt with a button down over it, and tennis shoes. Typically black or white. His clothes tend to cover them most of the time though. His favorite colors are blue and black which is his primary color scheme as far as clothes are concerned.
Tattoo*~ He has a tattoo on his left shoulder of two, one bladed axes crossed, and a dragon on the right. The chip is hidden beneath one of the tattoos and the other is there to compliment the look. Since it’s been healed he’s forgotten which shoulder has the chip embedded in it. It’s actually in his right shoulder under the eye of the dragon causing it to raise the skin slightly and not too noticeable warp the eye of the tattoo.
Weapons of Choice:
Axe bladed bracers: *
The blades on the bracers extend an inch past the knuckles and span about half the length of his forearm. They are for use in hand to hand combat. * Identical in design to the ones depicted. These bracers house runes that allow the possessed to wield the axe as one would a stick or a bat.
Daora’s Judgment: *
His main weapon is Daora’s Judgment, a double bladed ceremonial axe. It carries a razor sharp edge, and weights 10 tons quite literally. 4 ft diameter and a pair of 22 inch bits. He can and usually does wield it single handedly, but two hands are better able to keep it under control. This axe houses the demon lord Lao Shan Daora. It serves as the connection between Vance and Lao Shan Daora allowing him to channel his power directly into the young man’s body. As his power grows, more power is channeled into the axe and it gets various enhancements.
Lv1 (Daora’s Will) Projects a temporary 8 ft tall 5 ft radius cylinder field of zero gravity allowing him to move normally and even float through the air. The force from a swing from the axe would send any opponent flying in this field. It lasts a mere 7 seconds before it dissipates.
Lv3 (Daora’s Fury) The blade is engulfed in black gravitational energy, each swing that connects releases a powerful but narrow repulse wave shaped from the blade it’s released from, pushing back anything it comes in contact with along with taking the weighted impact of the heavy slash.
Lv5 (Final Judgment) The axe blades become engulfed in a powerful field of attractive gravitational energy that bends to the giant axe head’s form. His hands become engulfed in repulsive black gravitational energy that takes the shape of a dragon’s claws. He then hammer throws the axe at the opponent who then becomes the axes center of gravitational pull. The repulsive energy amplifies the hammer throw’s velocity and force, and the attraction forces are quite powerful making it move dangerously fast through the air with an insane amount of force. The blade will pursue the opponent until they die or the field on the axe wears off. The field lasts for 15 min max, and this requires a vast portion of Lao Shan Daora’s power, but if an opponent can out last the axes relentless assault coupled with the carefully precise assault of the powerful embodiment of Lao Shan Daora for an entire 15 minutes than they deserve to live. His fists become lethal weapons with the repulsion field engulfing them but he must get in close which puts him in the axes path. He can knock it away with his fists, and a thunder clap will release a powerful 360 degree repulse wave that expands 4 ft from his hands. Being that it’s projected by his hands and not his axe or body, he gets hit by the wave as well though taking a much lesser hit.
. For longer distance opponents, he carries throwing axes. They are designed to be thrown, and can travel several yards before falling with the right throw. They aren’t very heavy, but razor sharp. Thrown with enough velocity and they can split plenty of things. They aren’t very large, so he will need multiple blades to hit in order to bring something down; unless he lands a square head shot. He’s not that great a shot, so they are primarily for maiming a target so that he can close in for the kill.
Additional Items~ 1 belt holding 20 small throwing axes, 2 bundles of medicinal herbs, 1 metal canteen, 1 small utility knife, 1 compass, 1 flashlight, 1 GPS enabled cell phone, 1 pack of cards, 1 rum filled flask, 1 5-pack of black & mild’s, 1 Zippo lighter, and 1 small lighter fluid container (3 refills).
Power Focus~ Celestial. Daniel is possessed by the spirit of a forgot demon lord lost to pages of ancient lore. This demon came to be known as a sky god and was named Loa-Shan Daora by his people. His gravitational powers stem from it and the enhancements to his body are because of it.
Powers*~| Demon Awakening Mode
| Vance has protective wards inked into his skin. The wards project a nearly solid barrier to defend again most magical attacks, but no shield is unbreakable. The wards are in place to protect the holder of Lao Shan Daora's power as much as to contain and suppress the demon. When the wards are either willfully or forced opened, they glow. His demon form manifests itself by turning his eyes a glowing red, his hair white, his skin a smoky black, he produces a powerful sphere shaped gravitational aura (similar to that in the clip) and forming a set of concentrated ethereal wings of a grayish blue and black color on his back. His true power lies in the realm of gravitational and repulsive forces. His body’s strength does increase while in this state, but it’s not too drastic, making him as strong as a professional body builder. At the base level his body is also encompassed in an intensely powerful sphere shaped gravitational field. It’s almost like he’s in suspended animation inside a stasis field. It protects him by attempting to stop all that’s inside the field. He can feel the power that surges through him, making him much denser though still able to move no matter how dense he gets. He constantly feels the forces pulling on his body. * (4:47 - 5:18 of the clip, yes you can slide it to the time you want. It'll play from there)
Level 1 – Gravity Barrier: When his power is unleashed, the wards inked into Vance’s skin glow with a bright blue light. The power they were designed to protect is released, wrapping Vance in a powerful spherical barrier of clashing gravitational energies; with the repulsion and attraction forces mixing perfectly together in controlled stasis. The barrier works against any momentum or movement inside the sphere as it strives to maintain stasis. Unlike the nearly solid barrier projected by the unopened wards, the stasis barrier is merely warped space and an object entering at high speed will only be slowed as it passes through the barrier giving him more time to react than usual to help compensate for the vastly reduced movement speed.
Skill - Pull: He can also pull an object affected by his Grav. Barrier to him, the pull and intensity of the barrier getting stronger the closer it gets to the source. The field can only generate 2.5 G’s at this level and extends a mere 3.25 ft from his body. Only can pull 1 object at a time.
Demon Mode – Resistant to pain, enhanced strength, reduced mobility, level 1 magic, causes mild pain to the body as it’s unused to harnessing such intense power. He can freely enter his demon form once every twenty four hours. His demon form will only manifest on its own in times of extreme emotional or physical distress. The state only lasts long enough for him to finish a single battle.
Level 2 – Gravity Manipulation: He can now manipulate the weight of any object he’s touching, but once he’s set on a weight it won’t change so long as he’s holding it until his power is no longer active. The max he can weight down an item is 500lbs at this level.
G. Barrier Upgrade -The barrier can now exert up to 4 G’s. 4.0 ft radius. Pull can now affect objects 3 ft outside of his barrier, yet this requires heavy concentration, both hands and the pull velocity is slower the further beyond the barrier the object being pulled is. Max pull 2 objects (field range). 1 object (outer range).
Demon Mode Upgrade – Level 2 magic, 2 transformations per day, 30 min. max. duration. He can now freely deactivate his demon mode. When taking a beating / on the ropes, he can will his power forward in a last ditch effort to overwhelm the opponent. Lasts until the battle is over
Level 3 – Gravity Repulse: Unleashes a pulsing shockwave in a forward moving 90 degree arc that pushes against any object or magic. The repulse wave travels from him and carries a force of 4-5 N. Like a shotgun, the shockwave is strongest nearer the core of the barrier; capable of knocking opponents away and deflecting hazardous objects at and within 3 feet. Farther away it will push back opponents, knocking the wind from them and possibly knocking some off their feet. Objects will be slowed drastically or completely stopped depending on the force of the object. Excessive use of this power causes severe fatigue, pain, and blurred vision. 2 ft (focused) range. 5 ft (wide) range.
G. Barrier Upgrade – The barrier can now exert up to 8.0 G’s. 5.5 ft. radius. Pull velocity and range have increased. Less concentration required to pull heavy objects. +1 object pull increase at both ranges.
G. Manipulation Upgrade – He can now manipulate the weight of an object caught in his gravitational barrier; Including himself. 650lb max. Now he can change the weight of an object a few times before he can no longer affect its weight.
Demon Mode Upgrade - Level 3 magic, 3 transformations per day, 45 min. max. duration. Minor health regen and reduced pain sensitivity. The state still causes him pain, but he’s much more used to it and it bothers him less.
Level 4 – Gravity Fields: Vance can now form small cylinder shaped gravitational fields outside of his barrier allowing him to make areas of zero to 3X earth’s gravity. Field max size 10 ft high. 6 ft diameter. He can also create an ultra micro singularity capable of drawing in most anything within a 5 ft radius from the field sight. The max range of this power is 15 feet from him. With intense concentration he can detonate the singularity by reversing the forces and rapidly repelling everything from the field with 2 Psi. This can be fatal, but mostly causes property destruction and injury.
G. Barrier Upgrade – The barrier can now exert up to 16 G’s. 8.0 ft radius. Pull equally effective along the full 10 ft range of the pull field.
G. Manipulation Upgrade – Can now manipulate gravity inside the barrier. Can exert anywhere from 0 - 4 g's. *Flight is now possible through zero gravity inside the barrier and focused manipulation of repulsion forces to propel him.
Able to better time the weight manipulation of objects for more effective combat prowess. He can further manipulate objects before they are fixed on a specific weight for 2 minutes after his power deactivates. 800 lbs max.
G. Repulsion Upgrade – Arc increases to a max of 180 degrees and the force rises to 6-7 N. The wave travels farther giving it a focused range of 5.75 ft and wide range 11.5 ft wide.
Demon Mode Upgrade – Level 4 magic, 5 transformations per day , moderate health regen, His skin hardens and his body becomes more dense. He can hold the state for a full hour and can transform again anytime after a 15 minute cool down. It takes a concentrated effort to draw upon the demon’s power, but he can do it after a brief moment of meditation to tap into it. Highly pain resistant and barely feels the stress this state puts on his body.
Level 5 – The Wrath of Lao-Shan Daora: Vance becomes the conduit of Lao-Shan Daora’s power transforming him into a walking embodiment of the gravitational force of nature itself. He has some level of control but his more angsty, angry and violent tendencies tend to show. That coupled with control of weight and gravitational attraction and repulsion make him a force to be reckoned with.
Gravity Singularity: Lao -Shan Daora’s power explodes from Vance’s body forming his barrier into an infinitely dense gravitational singularity. The sphere is then encompassed by a black hole that draws in everything within a 50 ft radius. He then reverses the black hole resulting in a repulsion detonation, blast the entire thing away resulting in a 7 Psi blast. It takes a while for the forces to amass, and though he’s protected by it, the sheer amount of power in the forces at work strain his body beyond what should be possible. His can muscles rip, pieces of skin can be pulled off, and bones can break. It can really fuck him up in the process.
G. Barrier Upgrade – The barrier can now exert up to 32 G’s. 12 ft radius. Pull equally effective along the full 20 ft range of the pull field. Pull force increased, Massive items now effected
G. Manipulation Upgrade – Can exert anywhere between 0 - 6 g's. Excellent timing in the weight manipulation of objects for even further effective combat prowess. He can freely manipulate an objects weight. New weight last for 5 minutes after his power deactivates. 1000 lbs max.
G. Repulsion Upgrade – Arc increases to a full 360 degree blast and the force rises to 9-10 N. The wave travels farther giving it a focused range of 8 ft and wide range 15 ft wide.
G. Fields Upgrade - Fields can exert 5X earth's gravity max. 15 ft tall. 10 ft diameter. Field range 20 ft max. Singularity range 7.5 ft. Repulsion force 3 Psi.
Demon Mode Upgrade – Level 5 magic, freely able to transform , moderate health regen, His skin hardens and his body becomes super dense. He can hold the state for an hour and a half at a time and can transform again anytime after a 10 minute cool down. It takes little concentrated effort to draw upon the demon’s power, and he can do it on command. Feels no pain, nor the stress this state puts on his body.
Abilities~ He’s well versed in Hand to Hand combat and utilizes his own style consisting of Boxing, Wrestling, Kick-boxing, and a hint of submissionist. Formal military training and discipline. Field training: Tactical Combat Simulations and Guerilla Warfare Hostile Neutralization Exercises. He’s got a good throwing arm and prefers weapons to firearms. He has pretty good aim and can typically hit something he throws an object at. While not a weapon specialist in the least, he has had a fair amount of experience with his axe and other weapons.
Strengths~ The element of gravity, pain resistance, magic bracers and battle axe. The bracers allow the possessed to wield the cursed bound axe as one would a stick or a bat despite its immense weight. He can projects a powerful solid magic barrier in human form
Weaknesses~ His denser, toughened body weights him down, making him more powerful and durable yet slower because of it. The wards keeping the bound axe attached to him drains his energy and stresses his muscles, making him of below average strength, decent endurance, and below average dexterity as a human.
Personality~ . He’s a generally accepting person. He may-be considered nice by most people, but that’s just his form of common courtesy. The whole golden rule, treat others the way you want to be treated. He carries an unbiased attitude into most situations, and has a streak of non-chalance which helps. While on his never ending search to find the point in most things, he does have competitive and aggressive tendencies. While not uncommon in him, they do take a bit of provocation to bubble to the surface. Basically he needs an incentive to be motivated. Once he obtains his goal, it’s a coin toss if he’ll remain interested or not. He likes to think of himself as one with a balanced sense of realism, pessimism and optimism. He understands how things are most likely to turn out, and equally has hope for a better turn out while being even skeptical of a normal turnout. He doesn’t like surprises which is why he wants to be prepared to accept near any situation. Was trained for the military. He has a balanced perspective on life. He’s open to new ideas and is not afraid to die. He tries to maintain a peaceful environment, and hears both sides of an argument in order to find some level ground to come to an agreement. He’s a laid back type of guy, but means business. He likes to travel to new places every now and then. A vacation is always nice.
After successfully severing the ties between himself and the military; He sighed because unfortunately for him he had to push away from his father and leave that life behind. He grew up in the military as a trouble making army brat that was sent to a military training camp his father was stationed at. Not only did he receive a formal military training and discipline, his father taught him the ins and outs of armed and unarmed combat as well as field training in the form of tactical combat simulations and guerrilla warfare hostile neutralization exercises. He always knew he couldn't stay in the military, but the circumstances surrounding his discharge from their ranks was something no one could have imagined.
The day it happened, his family’s secret was revealed, unleashed on a combat strike zone. It was a routine real combat field extraction simulation with live rounds. They were taking heavy fire and the extraction team was still pretty far out. He called in a missile strike, but by the time the fighter pilot got there, the battlefield looked as if it had been hit by a warhead already. At the center of the destruction, inside a sizeable crater stood the embodiment of the demon lord Lao Shan Daora in the flesh.
Earlier that day, Vance had discovered his family’s oldest heirloom, and their darkest secret. In his father’s study against his wishes, he took his grandfather’s word and learned more about his African roots and even learned the language. He read about their ancestor’s ties to an ancient demon and the ceremonial axe and bracers on the wall that to this day has sealed within it that very demon Lao Shan Daora himself: The ferocious black dragon, master of weight, gravity, attraction, and repulsion and the power to wield it.
When he finished reading an inscription on the axe while he was dusting it, He felt a weight come down on him as the wards manifested themselves on his skin, sapping him of his strength, but when the insanely heavy axe fell over from his dusting, he could catch it. He grabbed it and picked it up. He swung it around, but when it got by his back the axe bound itself to him with a powerful gravitational pull. He went out to his exercise with the axe in tow and immediately jumped into the fray as it had already begun. After taking some heavy fire his power awakened and the simple combat training mission became a disastrous blast site.
Word spread quickly and the pilot’s eye witness account got around the base like wild fire. He was quickly deemed a cursed freak of nature and regarded with fear. Unable to cope with the incident and his new found power while watching his back for fear of retaliation from scared enlisted men, he left the military and after a short stint as a mercenary, he eventually became a bounty hunter.
On his adventures, he refined his craft and acquired the throwing axes. He came into his own with his axe oriented fighting style but has yet to discover the true potential hidden inside him, only experiencing to this point, mere bursts and spikes of his power. When consciously called upon he can only draw so much from the axe as of now..
Lately he’s been getting bored with the bounty hunters life style and while it has its perks and bountiful treasures he wants to fight people that can challenge him. He found an invitation, and flyer to the tournament and a map of the ancient city of Crail and the surrounding area among a mark’s belongings. He decided the invitation shouldn't go to waste and this tournament could be a true test of his abilities.
Under normal circumstances, Vance is protected by powerful wards that are invisible to the naked eye, but reside on his skin. These wards project a powerful protective barrier that shields him from nearly all magic. The same wards drain him of strength and energy, making him of below average strength, decent endurance, and below average dexterity. His only magical feats in his normal human state are his ability to wield Daora’s Judgment and the ability to transform into his demon form. Quantified it would most likely appear as such - Normal: Strength~ (4) Endurance~ (6) Dexterity~ (4) Magic~(2) Magic Defense~ (9)
