Boom shakalaka! Boom shakalaka! Boom shakalaka! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM bios will be posted here upon completion. An arena setting too would be nice.
Without really knowing what my character will be like, how about an ancient ruin? Like a Greek temple/amphitheater situation.
Also I have a paper to write tomorrow so I'll probably get my bio done Saturday
Crazy League | Confidently Wrong (ALJ)
Greek temple it is!
Let's both aim to have our bios up before Monday.
APPEARANCE: Tall, lanky humanoid with sagging shoulders and a hunched back. Pitch black skin stretched taut against wiry muscles, partially hidden by white rags draped over its shoulders and reaching down to hide its nether regions. Bare, clawed feet and hands, no hair to speak of. Two large, round eyes; black dots within a white orbs. A protruding nose and a mouth that reaches from ear to ear sporting rows upon rows of fangs. An unnatural gait, teetering on the verge of losing balance with every step, arms held limp by its sides. Not sure whether the mouth is stuck in a grin or if its sheer width is deceptive.
PERSONALITY: Singled-minded, obsessive, entirely devoid of empathy or compassion. Selfish, self-centered and self-serving. Oblivious to figurative speech and brutally honest. Allergic to rules and regulations; heavily favours Chaos over Order.
HISTORY: Gaki comes from the Underworld where he is known as "The Hunger Demon". In a past life he was a gluttonous, cannibalistic warlord whose strength, willpower and evil deeds were feared by mortals and acknowledged by immortals. Though he led his army to many victories, his ruthlessness towards his own soldiers cost him their loyalty; they betrayed and slew him in his sleep after a particularly brutal campaign during which most of his army's losses were incurred by his own fits of hunger-induced rage. Upon his death, The Darkness summoned his spirit and granted him a new body so that he may lead an army against The Light, but his reincarnation warped his mind and made him nigh-uncontrollable. Now a shadow of his former self, he is driven by his desire to consume everything and anything at any cost.
POWERS AND ABILITIES: Supernatural strength and stamina, ability to "devour" both physical and ethereal objects and energies for the purpose of regenerating and increasing his strength and stamina, can manifest and project his aura in order to confuse, scare or corrupt adversaires.
Name: Harold Pendragon
Appearance: Fair of complexion, this young man's looks can be traced back centuries to those of Arthur Pendragon, Lord of Camelot. He is deceptively thin, masking his not inconsiderable strength. He typically dresses in drapery, as such clothing allows him to hide foci and reagents where they will always be close at hand. Through the hood of his robes, however, protrudes a nose that is slightly longer than seems normal and a shock of auburn hair.
Personality: Driven and focused, Harold in unforgiving in his goals and will not hesitate to use the breadth of his force if provoked. He only reserves one power, and that is the power of histoflection (see below). He knows he has great power, and he borders on reckless.
History: At a fairly young age, Harold learned of his genealogical link to legend and devoted himself to the study of it. He was guided in his efforts by none other than Merlin the Great. Merlin was an extratemporal being, who in fact was immortal and lived life with a contrary flow of time. As such, he knew nothing of the Arthur of legend, and his power was no where near what it was in times of yore (as Merlin was several centuries younger than he'd be in Arthur's time). Harold proved to be receptive to magical instruction and very bright, so he quickly picked up on the uses of magic, and particularly the destructive arts. Further, through silently studying Merlin, Harold gained a better understanding of the flow of time. He created a new school of magic based upon this understanding, which not even Merlin had unlocked (at this stage of his life anyway).
Powers and abilities: Harold is an accomplished wizard, and additionally has extensive fencing training from his traditional British Lord upbringing. Additionally, he is this world's only expert in histoflection, which is to summon near perfect replicas of items (or souls of people; he postulates that he could bring corporeal form to those in the past, but he does not yet have a complete understanding of souls, so he doesn't know how) in the past to the present. His favorite histoflection is, if course, Excalibur, and it is the weapon he feels most comfortable wielding. He's trained deliberately with that weapon for years just to strengthen his link to his ancestor, and has worked destructive magic in with his swordplay to great effect.
You want the first action?
@Jas yes please! Will aim have a post up by end of Tuesday.
Sounds great. I look forward to it.

Alrighty. It'll be worth the wait. I haven't sparred someone in years.
