    Coma White [Shinsou Vaan Osiris Level 13]

    Updates in blue. Removed Shira Kurohitsugi from abilities.
    Name: Shinsou Vaan Osiris
    Gender: Male
    Age: 32 years old
    Race: Telgradian
    Eye Color: Gold
    Hair color: Brown
    Height: 6’0”
    Weight: 155lbs
    Alignment: Neutral

    Personality

    The years and trials they brought have moulded Shinsou into something much more formative than his younger self. A philosophical and intelligent man, he is strikingly calm and calculating, being able to think and talk through most problems. The sheer power he commands (both physically and as co-leader of the Brotherhood) has given the Telgradian an unprecedented confidence, but he still displays a certain level of fear of the power wielded by a handful of individuals on Althanas. Amongst those that he truly respects, and sometimes fears, are Joshua Cronen, Storm Veritas and Madison Freebird. His relationship with Storm Veritas has been colourful and chequered in the past, but the pair have settled their differences to focus on the common goal of putting the Brotherhood in power. They are, once again, firm friends.

    Whilst very military minded, Shinsou can also be a socialite when the time allows him. He is not beyond drinking in public, despite his rather public profile, and will often visit his friends to blow off steam when Brotherhood commitments allow him.

    Recently, Shinsou has directed more and more of his ire about certain aspects of the country of Corone towards the hapless Coronian Assembly. Seeing them as weak and inept, the Telgradian, along with Storm Veritas, has made it his goal to stage a coup in Radasanth for the benefit of both the nation as a whole and the Brotherhood, believing his faction to be a viable alternative to the current government. This has driven a wedge between him and Philomel van der Aart, one of his closest friends, as well as having attracted the wrong kind of attention from his old flame Amari. It may also be the case that long time friend Joshua Cronen will have to re-evaluate their close relationship, although that remains to be seen. Nonetheless, Shinsou is so convinced the change is needed that he is undeterred from the outcries, wishing to press on regardless.

    Equipment

    Sanctum

    A buckler shield with a unique design. Underneath tough Titanium plating lies a core of finest Raiaeran Diamond. The shield is forearm mounted and circular; light enough to carry single handed but sturdy enough to deflect even strong projectiles and melee strikes. (bought from the Bazaar here)

    Drakescale Coat

    Joining Shinsou’s trademark white coat in the wardrobe is this Salvarian Drakescale greatcoat. Complete with wolf-fur collar, silver buckles and silver trim, this heavy duty, rifleman green greatcoat is more than enough to keep the harsh Salvarian cold, or the sneaky blade of a dagger, from cutting into a human’s skin. Even though Shinsou’s cold soul ability negates the effects of the cold, he still really likes this coat and wears it when his white one won’t do, or when he is worried about getting stabbed or cut. (bought in the thread linked above)

    Weapons

    Stygian

    (Won from the Auction House here for 1550 GP)

    Stygian is a Mithril longsword crafted in time immemorial by a Raiaeran swordsmith who's name has been lost to obscurity. In addition to it's natural fortitude and innate mystical proclivities, the blade holds a deeper enchantment that was sung into its craft by one of the ancient High Bards.

    In darkness, it glows with a faint light that provides the bearer visibility within ten feet, and faint light outside of that for another five. This cannot be stifled.

    Its song resonates from deep within, and those with magical training or understanding can hear it if they concentrate. It can be invoked thrice a day/thread by utterance of the word "nightfall." Doing this will cause anyone who has been struck by the weapon within the past ten minutes to become intoxicated by "the darkest night," a nightmarish evil from Elvish lore. This state causes them to lose their wits and become thrall to the bearer of the blade for twelve hours. They will obey any command short of something that directly endangers their life.

    Shira

    An icecraft sword created by Breaker using his water affinity to replace Enpera after the events of Old habits die hard. It is cold to touch, though not so frigid as natural ice, and similar in dimensions to his former sword with the blade being ninety centimeters long. The sword is as strong as steel and will never melt, though it may shatter if met with a force which could break or bend steel.

    Traditionally, the Telgradian race have been able to form a connection with their weapon and make it sentient. Shinsou's loss of Enpera has allowed Shira to manifest a spirit and attach itself to Shinsou. This allows him to commune with the sword and tap into ice-elemental magic (detailed in the abilities section) at the cost of his Telgradian magic.

    Shira's spirit is steadfast but hot-headed. Appearing as a young woman dressed in an elegant dress of ice when communed with, Shira will often scold Shinsou if she believes he is not putting his all into a task or looking after himself. On the other hand she is also very protective; as Shinsou becomes injured, the color of Shira's blade brightens. This is believed to be a personification of her growing anger.

    The Goat

    The fire blade had been rumoured to have been seen in the back alleys across Alerar, but its true location had been unknown for centuries. Shinsou and Enpera tracked it down using notes from the Brotherhood's archives and eventually located the sword deep within the catacombs under Radasanth itself. The sword is a regular steel sword with a crimson blade and a black hilt, but it is said to harbour a power that is yet to reveal itself (please refer to Hysteria's crystal sword thread here for further details).

    The Goat was obtained here.

    Exia Muken

    This sword is effectively a hilt through which Shinsou channels his Dark Matter. The matter then compresses and becomes extremely intense, forming a blade of powerful dark magic that can compete with the highest tiers of metal on Althanas (bought here)

    Materials: Prevailda hilt, diamond core
    Cutting power: Prevailda
    Power up time: 5 seconds
    Usage: 1 minute / 2 posts
    Cooldown: 1.5 minutes / 3 posts
    Noise: Soft hum
    Blade length and type: 90cms, single straight edge of concentrated dark matter

    Skills

    Swordsmanship

    Shinsou has grown to be a master swordsman, allowing him to duel with even the most schooled of warriors on an equal footing.

    Abilities

    Spirit Sense

    Ability: 1
    Duration: Passive
    Tier: N/A

    Shinsou is able to detect the presence and power level of living or un-dead people that he has already met. The stronger the person, the further away he can detect a presence. He is able to distinguish which power signature belongs to whom.

    Cold Soul

    Ability: 2
    Duration: Passive
    Tier: N/A

    Shinsou’s body has 100% resistance to the element of ice. This allows him to survive in harsh artic climates with little clothing and will only suffer light trauma wounds from the force of physically damaging ice spells. He remains unaffected by any other ice elemental magic. This ability is always active.

    Enpera

    Ability: 3
    Duration: Can be summoned once per thread but passive thereafter
    Tier: Titanium

    Shinsou’s sword, Enpera, lost its physical form a year ago but remained in spirit form and remained dormant within Shinsou’s soul. Using this ability the Telgradian can manifest or de-materialise Enpera’s true form back into the physical plane as desired by simply thinking or speaking Enpera’s name.

    Enpera’s form is that of a 90cm long titanium katana, complete with a silver hilt wrapped with navy green and silver cord.

    Dark Matter

    Ability: 4
    Duration: Four times per thread
    Tier: Titanium

    Shinsou can call upon powerful non-elemental dark energy that can be used as handheld weapons, moulded into another shape or used as a projectile up to a range of two hundred yards. The dark energy comprises solid dark matter that can pierce or cut flesh and medium tier armour, and is the equivalent strength of titanium.

    Ability: 5
    Duration: Four times per thread
    Tier: Titanium

    Shinsou can call forth vines of dark matter to do his bidding in an area up to thirty feet away and can call upon this skill four times before exhausting it for the duration of the battle. Weapons and objects created by Dark Matter last four posts.

    Shira's Icecraft

    Ability: 6
    Duration: Unlimited use with 2x debuff to stamina after four posts and unconsciousness after six posts
    Tier: Dehlar

    Shinsou is able to create and manipulate large amounts of ice. The strength of the ice can be reinforced to Dehlar strength and will not melt unless heat of equal strength comes into prolonged contact with it. There is no limit to the amount of times Shinsou can create ice, but due to the intense power required to use the magic he is subject to a stamina drain through prolonged use. This equates to a 2x debuff to his endurance after four consecutive posts, followed by a complete physical shutdown after six consecutive posts. Shinsou must take a one post break from creating ice on the fourth post to avoid the threat of the debuff and recover his stamina.

    Shinsou may also not use icecraft through any item other than his enchanted Titanium gloves - in order to conjure, he must ensure his hands have skin to air contact, although it matters not whether the Telgradian is holding a sword or not.

    Enpera Kurohitsugi

    Ability: 7
    Duration: Twice per thread
    Tier: Dehlar

    This spell, a similar ability to Shinsou's previous trademark attack, allows him to unleash a volley of up to fifteen dark matter projectiles of Shinsou's choosing (as long as they conform to the rules of the dark matter ability), each with the strength of Dehlar, from a dark vortex of his creation. The void can be created with the wave of a hand and appears on command, usually from behind him.

    Enpera Kurohitsugi - Phalanx Form

    Ability: 8
    Duration: Twice per battle with four post duration
    Tier: Dehlar

    By slightly changing the consistency and molecular structure of the dark matter at his command, Shinsou can turn the projectiles that Enpera Kurohitsugi usually summons into fifty centimetres long by twenty five centimetres wide curved scales of Dehlar strength dark matter.

    Once in this form, the scales that levitate around Shinsou are controlled entirely by the Telgradian’s will. Each scale, individually, has the strength of Dehlar. However, they can be called upon to converge in one place, forming a solid surface that can withstand blows equating to the force of a Prevailda greathammer when all fifteen scales are interlocked. It will also halve any damage from the elements of fire and lightning magic whilst nullifying any ice magic cast upon it.

    Hakai: Enpera Shinkotei

    Ability: 9
    Duration: Four posts
    Tier: N/A

    By uttering or thinking the incantation “Hakai, Enpera Shinkotei”, Shinsou breaks the final seal on Enpera’s power and unleashes its true potential. This changes Enpera into Enpera Shinkotei, extending its length to 180cms and effectively making it a deadly no-dachi anti cavalry sword. This also grants Shinsou the following buffs:

    Ability: 10
    Duration: Four posts
    Tier: N/A

    Shinsou receives an 8x buff to his speed.

    Ability: 11
    Duration: Four posts
    Tier: N/A

    Shinsou receives an 8x buff to his strength.

    Widowmaker

    Ability: 12
    Duration: Three times a day, four post duration
    Tier: N/A

    Shinsou concentrates a quantity of dark matter energy into his sword and ‘taints’ it. The resulting effect ensures that any residual or gradual healing abilities learned or inherent in an opponent are negated entirely for four posts if any part of them (flesh, blade or armour) touches the blade. This ability will not work on or through barriers and can be used three times a day.

    The White Emperor

    Ability: 13 (armor), 14 (remove debuffs)
    Duration: Five posts (1 cast per day)

    Shinsou transforms into the first of his true Telgradian forms. Ice as hard as Diamond forms in a vertical cross shaped pattern over the centre of his chest and over his face, creating a shimmering mask. It also forms around his forearms, the backs of his palms, his shoulderblades and lower legs. Finally, a crown of the same ice forms like a circlet around Shinsou's forehead.

    In this form, he no longer suffers from the debuff effects of his icecraft magic. He no longer needs to be in this form to access Starflare Pulsar, his most powerful spell, which deals crushing non-elemental damage to a single target by surrounding it with seven Dark Matter orbs that implode silmultaneously (see below).

    Starflare Pulsar

    Ability: 15
    Duration: One use

    Shinsou's Starflare Pulsar is his most powerful and feared spell. Dealing non-elemental damage to a single target, Shinsou commands seven superpowered Dark Matter orbs to surround the target and implode. The resulting gravitational force within the circle can shatter even Diamond tier materials. Starflare Pulsar can only be used once per day competitively and twice per story orientated thread.

    Silence

    Ability: 16
    Duration: Passive, at will.

    At will, Shinsou can hide his spiritual energy. This prevents him from being detected by beings who could normally sense life energy, spiritual energy or otherwise sense his presence. This does not, however, make him invisible.


    Background:

    Early years and the Telgradian Civil War

    Shinsou Vaan Osiris, a Telgradian / Jal Shey hybrid, was believed to have been born in the Outer Territories of the Planet Telgradia in year 515 and studied under a number of different Telgradian masters as a student of the elite Council of Five, a powerful warrior force that protected the Telgradian Royal Family, with the sole intention of being Telgradia’s finest warrior. His biological father, Telos Soltair, was one such master. During his upbringing he became fast friends with a fellow student named Jaeger Keats, who with Shinsou (known at that time as Atlas Revaan) graduated from the Telgradian military academy with the highest honours. The young Shinsou became a respected commander of a Telgradian division and was a vocal critic of the Council of Five's inactivity in the ongoing war between the nations of Telgradia and the Kratas Outlands, home to the Jal Shey sect. This criticism stretched to fury when Telgradia’s princess Rhovani, Shinsou’s love interest, was kidnapped and taken by the Jal Shey to the Kratas Outlands without meeting the slightest bit of resistance.

    Choosing to go against the Council’s wishes and wanting to wait no longer to take action, the now powerful Shinsou gathered a small, ragtag guerrilla force together in defiance of the overwhelming Jal Shey numbers and waged a relentless campaign against the Kratas Outlands. However, when Shinsou eventually defeated the Jal Shey lords at the Battle of Gaus VII in Telgradian year 535, he and his friend Keats followed the trail of a mysterious dark influence to the far reaches of Kratas. Here, the two discovered a reconstituted Jal Shey Empire and learned of four great powers that had been controlling events from the very beginning; Temperance, Hierophant, Chariot and Justice. Temperance, being the most powerful of the four great lords, had devoured Rhovani’s soul after needing a source of energy to continue to live. As Shinsou arrived at his temple, the Telgradian could only watch as the remnants of his love were scattered like ash into an abyss by the terrible beast. A chaotic battle ensued that destroyed Temperance’s temple, but even with Shinsou’s full power he could not match the beast’s supernatural abilities. Temperance saw the power that Shinsou possessed and chose to take possession of his and Jaeger’s bodies to further the Jal Shey goals. Both men were forced against their will to betray Telgradia, declaring themselves Emperor and Servant to the new Jal Shey Empire and declared war against the Royal State of Telgradia and the Council of Five.

    Sent back to Telgradia as Temperance’s agents of death, the newly anointed Emperor Shinsou Vaan Osiris (having discarded his old moniker of Revaan) and Keats broke the ranks of the Telgradian forces with relative ease. However, a matter of miles from Telgradia’s capital city, Garah, Shinsou and Keats were separated. All five members of the Council of Five appeared to stop the possessed Shinsou from obliterating the capital, Telos Soltair included, and after a gruelling battle Shinsou was subsequently captured and sentenced to imprisonment in the high security facility Kokushi for his crimes. The Telgradian, considered too powerful and dangerous for a normal incareration, was also sentenced to a process known as razing – used only on the most violent and profound of criminals – which strips the soul of an offender from their body completely and imprisons it inside a crystal artefact known as a Pillar. His body was then cleansed over a period of three years and Shinsou’s mind, along with Temperance’s influence, was eradicated.

    The Council of Five believed that was the end of Shinsou.

    The Gnarled Roots of Osiris (click to read)

    With his memory wiped, three years later Osiris was visited by the Council of Five commander, Dxun Ra, at Kokushi’s most secure level. As the captain-commander released the seals on Shinsou’s body, the Telgradian remarked that he recognised the magic that Dxun had used to release him. Intrigued by how Shinsou was able to remember anything at all, Dxun Ra promised that they would meet again soon and left him in the hands of Kokushi’s guards and the lower Telgradian Council. Now restored to the name of Atlas Revaan and unaware as to his previous identity, Shinsou was summoned by councillor Flexton Ra for an important mission that the Council of Five wished him to undertake. After leading Atlas to believe he had been a heroic general who had fought Shinsou Vaan Osiris’s empire before being gravely injured and had been “healing” in Kokushi, Flexton told the man that, overnight, the Pillar artefact containing Shinsou’s original soul had been stolen and he wanted Atlas to retrieve it. Reluctantly, Atlas agreed to the mission, which lead him to once again, unknowingly, cross paths with his old friend Jaeger Keats (now a member of the Telgradian Royal Guard and still under Temperance’s influence).

    After cryptic meetings with Keats, and with Atlas becoming more suspicious of his own identity, the mission proceeded as planned. Atlas Revaan and a prison guard that included Gnarloc within its ranks landed on Althanas, where the Pillar of Osiris had been tracked. It was then that Jaeger Keats appeared and revealed his true colours to Atlas, bringing with him both the head of Atlas’s murdered commanding officer General Osho and the Pillar of Osiris. In a flash, Keats used the pillar to restore Shinsou back to his “original self”.

    With his memory somewhat restored, Shinsou initially appeared to be his old self. Recognising the fortress they were in as the one containing the legendary Cartographer (a building containing the seal of Temperance, who had lay dormant since Shinsou’s incarceration), the Telgradian revealed himself to be free of Temperance’s influence and now instead turned on Keats, who was attempting to convince Shinsou to help him revive Temperance and lay waste to Telgradia once again. Shinsou’s refusal led to the former allies duelling and, after intervention by Gnarloc, the Telgradian succeeded in killing his former right hand man. This chain of events helped to shape Shinsou to be something encompassing both of his identities and, with his business concluded and no further desire to return to his home planet, the Telgradian began to settle on Althanas, making the restoration of his mostly sealed power his top priority.

    Hello there

    You are sitting within your TPL as far as this upgrade goes.

    Only thing is that your 'Enpera Kurohitsugi - Phalanx Form' was already at maximum 10 PL from the last work up. I am currently working on querying how to handle this, so please bare with me.

    Thanks.

    Ok, I've changed my "capped" abilities (Icecraft, Enpera Kurohitsugi and Enpera Kurohitsugi - Phalanx) back to their original limits (Dehlar).

    I'm good for re-assessment.
