Corvus

Post by Corvus on 10/10/2012, 2:12 am

Character Name: Corvus

Age Fourteen years of age [Due to the nature of her people, age in the sense of year is superfluous and one is only judged by their capacity to produce children and support both herself and her people. As such, despite her young age by earth standards, Corvus is considered a fully grown woman by both her own and other culture’s standards]

Gender: Female

Race: Xeno

Appearance:


Spoiler:

A young lady who has, much like her twin, inherited quite a bit of her mother's physical features, though one can definitely detect a bit more of her father in both her demeanor and her appearance, aesthetically, Corvus is quite the unique individual.

General- Having taken after her father when it comes to her height, Corvus has already surpassed her mother's minuscule stature, even if only by an inch, and currently stands at five feet and one inch. Due, in equal parts, to both her love for physical exertion and the inherent need for physical fitness that her heritage demands, Corvus is quite fit; though she does not possess much muscular definition, her being still being so young and all that, her musculature is quite above average and her physique can best be compared to a long distance track and field athlete or some sort of swimmer. Due to her frequent running about, Corvus has long since begun to develop calluses on the soles of her feet, and given up on maintaining much aestheticism.

Facial Features/Hair/Skin- Like any other individual in her position, Corvus’ surprisingly lustrous locks are a rather unique shade of dull red. Much like her mother, Corvus' relatively pale, can be considered remarkably pale considering just how much time she spends out of doors, skin seemingly never burns or freckles, thus explaining her less than conservative dress code. The traits that Corvus has inherited from her father include her small, but upturned nose, her thin, easily managed eyebrows, her naturally pouty lips and a her near complete lack of body hair

Starting Location: Arlia

Biography (150 words:) To understand Corvus’ past, one must first come to know her people, the Ahn-San and the Athenin.

Like the generations long past before her era, Corvus’ people, the Ahn-San, have walked the dessert world of Sahna for an untold period of time; some say as long as three-four millennium, others say only as long as a century or two. Of these nomadic sand-dwellers, few are as formidable a force as the female-exclusive tribe of Athenins. Through both extensive training as warriors, hunters and foragers, and the usage of peculiar herbs and other such plant life, the Athenins have flourished in the harsh landscape of Sahna. Where their ancestors dared not tread, the Athenins do not hesitate to linger, learn and adapt. When the planet was ravaged by sand-storms, rather than hunker down and either perish or grow old and fat, as their fellow Ahn-San did, the Athenins moved about, somehow surviving where few others did. It is both this fearless drive to continually improve and travel that has allowed the Athenins to survive as long as they have. That, and their seemingly unsurpassed beauty, which is partly responsible for one of their most important traditions. The aforementioned tradition of the Athenins is to visit each of the nomadic tribes that they know the travel patterns of and have one of their tribe members conceive a pair of children with their most physically and mentally fit male, so as to ensure that their tribe remain one of the most powerful. Though they are eerily similar in their appearance and physiology to human females, they are fundamentally different in that their reproductive organs produce and are designed to best nurture two fertile eggs. The female that is selected to have a child will spend one year, the time it takes for a woman to give birth in the Ahn-San culture, among her mate’s tribe, learning their ways and ensuring that her soon to be birthed children are safe. Once the Athenin’s once more make their rounds among the tribes, the women is given the chance to rejoin the Athenins along with one of her children, as long as it is female, or to leave her native tribe and join the one her mate is a part of. It is rare for a woman to choose to stay among another tribe; the Athenin’s sense of superiority is hard to shake, even if one were to stay a year with another tribe. However, every now and then, a woman will intend hand over one of her children and stay amongst the other tribe with her other.

Corvus’ mother was one of the few women in the year that she was born that made this choice.

As per the tradition of her people, Corvus spent much of her childhood playing games that would teach her how to survive in the harsh lands of Ahn-San. She learned games that taught her all the necessary precautions to take when hiding from predators. She learned how to properly utilize her body as both a weapon and a tool for her own survival. She learned how to read generic weather patterns and body language so as to prepare herself for both ecological and emotional storms. However, perhaps the most important thing that she learned within the Athenin tribe was her own name and her purpose in life.

As per the Athenin culture, once Corvus and those born within the same year as her turned ten she was brought to Ahn-San’s highest mountain and told to climb until they encountered an animal and captured it. Upon capture, the children were to climb back down. For most, it was simple to capture animals, as they had been taught all the basics of hunting and tracking. However, for whatever reason, though she came close to doing so, Corvus refused to capture any animal she encountered and thus continued climbing the mountain until long after her fellow tribesmen had completed the task.

Though it was a daunting task for anyone, Corvus refused to stop climbing until finally, she found herself standing on the mountain’s peak, overlooking the land. Though the mountain was the highest in the world, it had long since been worn down by wind and other such factors and as such, was nowhere near as high as the mountains that graced earth, so while climbing it was an impressive feat, it was not a mind-boggling one. Simultaneously proud and ashamed of both her accomplishment and her failure to capture an animal, Corvus did the only thing that made sense to her and simply sat at the top of the mountain. Using a small crevice just below the peak, Corvus stayed at the top of the mountain, eating the plant that grew at the top and drinking the rain that fell. For three days and three nights, Corvus did not descend until, finally she was visited by the Athenin’s leader. After a discussion of philosophy and such, Corvus and the leader ended up staring out over the seemingly endless sands of their planet until, finally, a single crow descended, landing on Corvus’ shoulder as she had been standing perfectly still.

As per Athenin tradition, Corvus obtained her name from the animal she had managed to capture; Corvus.

From that moment on, things changed for the young lady who began to be called Corvus. She sorted into the caste of a warrior within the Athenin tribe and was trained as such. However, time and again, it seemed that Corvus was getting more and more restless, until, finally she approached the Athenin Leader about the topic they had discussed whilst on the mountain; her purpose. Agreeing that it could not be amongst her people as she was much too restless, the leader gave Corvus permission to disengage from the tribe and go out on her own.

For years, Corvus traversed the sands of Ahn-San, learning new and wonderful things, both from suffering and from success. Eventually, however, Corvus found herself facing an object she had never encountered before but had heard of; a space-ship. Using the global language of Ahn-San she learned that it was here to pick up some new slaves and gladiators from one of the none-traveling tribes of Ahn-San, something she had heard of, but had never believed.

It was at that moment that Corvus understood her purpose in life, and begged to be taken to the homeworld of the alien visitors as a gladiator.

Starting abilities

Spoiler:

Ki Control

Utility

This is the ability to suppress and mask your own ki so that others cannot sense true power. This will help to hide you from those who know ki sense and use scouters. Also, you can adjust your strength, agility, and ki, making them whatever percent of your total that you wish. Endurance cannot be manipulated, but will automatically be an average of the other three. For example, if lower your strength to 1,000, agility to 2,000 and ki to 2,500, your endurance would turn out at 1,833. If you Power Up, it will immediately release your suppression. Also, actions and abilities that would normally boost your attributes will not do so while you're suppressed. For example, if you use a ki wave that would normally boost your ki score by +12%, it won't go up. However, if you want that wave to be more potent, you may adjust your ki score to whatever percent you like prior to firing it. If you wish to gain the full effect, you must release your suppression first.

Roleplay Sample (250 words):
Spoiler:
Harry Duller-Appleman was many things. He was a professional athlete, he was a natural red-head and he was multilingual after having spent almost an entire year in Japan. But, in Harry's opinion, what was most important was that he was, at the moment, feeling incredibly exhilarated. For quite a bit of time, Harry had been questioning how exactly he was going to be getting around in Japan once he performed his career move, and today, he had his answer; he was going to 'superhero' it. At first, it had seemed like a terrible idea to traverse tokyo via leaping from rooftop to rooftop, but once he had gotten started, he had to admit, this was easily his best idea ever. Had Harry actually needed to be somewhere by a particular time, the idea might have been even better, but as it was, he found it pretty good all the same.

Breaking out in a grin that would have put the Cheshire cat to shame, Harry readied himself for the particularly large gap that existed between the rooftop he was currently on and the one he was aiming to be on. Taking in a quick breath, Harry leaped from the rooftop, throwing his arms back behind him as he bent them at the elbows and did something very similar with his legs. In short, Harry had adopted a long jumper's posture so as to make sure that he cleared the distance properly; Harry was certain that he could have cleared the distance anyway, but he was not really willing to take chances with something as risky as rooftop leaping, regardless of how fun. His smile only growing wider, Harry basked in the afterglow of his successful jump but soon found it interrupted as he caught sight of someone leaping from one rooftop to the next in the distance.

Truth be told, he couldn't really be sure that it was a person, but as far as he knew, no birds in Tokyo were that large, nor did they prefer to leap from place to place rather than fly. "Someone else with super-powers?" Harry asked himself rhetorically. He already had his answer, and it was, undoubtedly a 'yes'. "Well, then, guess I better say hi". With that, Harry was off, his unzipped sweat suit jacket fluttering out behind him as he focused less on safety and instead zeroed in on speed. His simple gray sweat suit was designed for relatively similar activities to the ones Harry was taking part in at the moment, though the wife-beater underneath did the job even better.


"Hey!" Harry yelled, his voice, apparently, not carrying far enough for the man, for surely that could only be a man, to hear him. Sucking his teeth and creating a "tch" noise to announce his annoyance, Harry picked up on his pace, closing in on the man just as the rooftop door to the building he had just landed on closed quietly behind him. Harry approached the door swiftly, completely unaware of the nature of the building he was on.

He turned the knob to the door slowly, almost as if he were warning anyone who might be within earshot of the door that someone was coming.
