A Born Killer...

Post by Sephtis on Sat Apr 29, 2017 7:11 am

Personality and the Basics


Name: Sephtis
Gender: Male
Type: Western Dragon
Species: He's a hybrid of Draco Desertum(Desert Dragon) and Draco Silvam(Forest Dragon).
Age: 837
Date of Birth: February 13
Personality: On the outside Sephtis is cold and emotionless. He tends to feel emotions, but he's very good at hiding them. Only a telepath would know what he really felt. He generally seems apathetic or uncaring, but if someone he cares about is threatened he will find the dragon that did the threatening and kill them quietly as if he didn't even care... He is not very likable unless one gets to know him first. Even in combat he can seem apathetic or cold. He doesn't tend to do well in social situations as talking about his "job" could lead to... Complications... He hoped to become a Skygger and has used his free time to train towards that goal. He also practices magic of all types looking to improve his magical abilities in all areas. He distrusts everyone no matter how well he knows them. He doesn't like other dragons touching him. The fact that he killed three dragons as a hatchling generally makes him more intimidating. He constantly gives of this strange feeling of tension and anger.
Hobbies: He hunts a lot and he trains as hard as he can so he can serve as a Skygger.
Likes: He likes successfully sneaking around undetected. He likes upsetting his enemies and making them unable to think clearly. He likes to see his superiors happy with his work. Anything to do with magic...
Dislikes: He HATES it when someone gets in his way when he's trying to complete a job or mission. He, strangely enough, doesn't like getting his claws or fur bloody or dirty... He dislikes not being able to get an assignment. He dislikes being mistaken for a younger dragon because of his size. Physical contact with other dragons.
Fears: He fears getting caught on a mission or during a job. He fears telepaths because they can know his real emotions and feelings. He fears large crowds.


Origin, Culture, and Family


Place of Origin: Xoyan capital.
Tribe: Xoya
Position: Xoyan Skygger
Language: Universal, Xoyan, he is in the process of learning the other languages so that he can communicate no matter where he is.
Home: He still lives in the Xoyan capital, but he travels regularly when he can. Sometimes he even travels between the continents for various reasons.
Parents: Don't ask about that...
Siblings: None as far as he knows.
Relatives: Nada.
Mate: Nope
Offspring: Zilch.
History: When he was a hatchling his parents had gotten into trouble with a group of malicious dragons. One day a trio of brutes from the group barged down their door and demanded... Something... Sephtis couldn't remember what. It had something to do with money or something of value. Probably something that his parents owed the group. He was in the back of the room hidden behind a stack of scrolls and other clutter. He turned to peer through a hole in the pile. The large dragons spoke loudly and angrily. They kept asking for something... Something he couldn't remember. Eventually the argument became heated although his parents had tried their hardest to keep it calm. The three brutes didn't know he was there... One raked his claws along Sephtis' father's face causing gashes across his face. Seph wanted to scream, but for some reason he couldn't... As he watched, frozen in fear, the larger dragon attacked his father again demanding he tell him where "it" was hidden...
Why couldn't he move!? As they attacked his father, his mother leapt at the brute, but the other two held her back.
They had to be extremely strong to hold her back... Eventually the first brute slashed her claws along Seph's father's throat. Seph was absolutely terrified, and he hadn't seen what had happened... He heard a gurgling noise then the large female brute came over to the other two holding his mother back. His mother tried to scream, but the other two held her maw shut. Seph watched as she broke free from the other two fighting tooth, claw, and tail to beat back the three brutes. Eventually the first brute found a splintered pole of wood that had broken in the ensuing battle and shoved it through his mothers throat... She fell right near Seph's hiding place. Seph felt pure rage and hatred like he'd never felt before... He was going to kill the brutes... He made a yelping sound as if he was afraid. He was afraid, but his anger... it was much, much stronger than his fear. The brutes turned to his hiding spot and the largest of the three pushed the pile of stuff hiding Seph aside... The brute spoke, "There's a hatchling in here... What do we do about it?"
The female spoke, "Bring it with us. Maybe we can sell it to someone or you could just get rid of it..." As the largest brute reached towards him he flicked his venomous tail directly into the large dragon's heart. The brute fell to the ground dead. The other male brute turned and saw the larger dragon thud to the floor. He stood there startled as Seph launched himself at the brute. He raked his fully extended claws along the brute's underbelly causing a large gash. The brute's female partner, who seemed to lead the group, hissed and grasped at Seph. Seph landed on her head and clawed at her eyes. She threw him off, but then she screamed in pain... She was missing an eye... Seph landed on the male brute's wing and his claws tore through the wings membrane ripping a massive hole in it. As the two brutes ran from Seph's home he tried to chase them. He was going to hunt them down...

A few days later a group patrol found Sephtis lying on his mother's chest crying. They'd found two dragons dead in the same part of the city earlier in the week. When they saw him there amidst the three other bodies they picked him up. Seph tried to fight back, but his rage had left him... He grew up in the Xoyan military and soon he rose to the rank of Spion. He excelled in close combat and stealth skills. The only family he'd known after the murder of his parents were his handlers and his fellow soldiers. He would grow up a cold and angry individual that was loyal to the only family he knew... The Xoyan Military.

The events above took place when he was only seven.

Sephtis was once attacked by a group of his fellow students after he'd outclassed them all completely. They saw an opportunity for revenge, so they cornered and attacked Seph in a dark corner in the city. He was able to fend them off easily. Two were killed directly and two more died of their wounds a few days later. The other three fled in terror. This was only two and a half centuries after his parent's murder.

A little over three and a half centuries after his parent's murder he ended up hunting down and killing ten members of the group that had had his parents killed. This was over the span of two centuries. He's still hunting the rest of the group down mercilessly...

Physical Appearance and Accessories


Height: 36ft
Length: 57ft
Wingspan: 113ft
Scale/Fur/Feathers: He has dark black scales, but fur covers his body growing from in between the scales. His fur is shades or dark greens, browns, and grays.
Eyes: He has piercing golden eyes that look as if they could freeze anything just by looking at it... They constantly give off the feeling that whatever was behind them was long dead...
Accessories: Maybe at some point.
Armor: He has a set of bracers that he can clamp onto his forearms. Each bracer has a few different mechanisms in it. They both have a hook-like blade that can help him climb even sheer cliffs if he needs to. More will be added throughout his training.
Horns/Spikes: He has sharp spines along the middle of his back that can retract. If a dragon were to attack him from the back they'd get a nasty surprise.
Overall Appearance: He's a small dragon, but his size is an advantage for him. He is covered in fur that helps him camouflage in dark areas and muffles his movement greatly. He is usually sleek. He constantly has an air of tension around him despite him always seeming cold and emotionless.


Abilities and Strengths


Abilities: He has a venomous stinger on the end of his tail which can administer venom by either injection or flicking the substance off of the end. The venom causes both internal and external bleeding as it slowly causes necrosis in organic tissue. It causes vomiting, a feverish state, and eventually death if received in a large dose. In the first hour after the stab wound, there is only external bleeding. After the first hour slow internal bleeding begins along with tissue necrosis internal bleeding and necrosis become worse as the next six hours pass. The pain starts out unnoticeable until two hours after being stung. Six hours after the sting the venom begins causing extreme necrosis and slight tearing of muscle tissue. Vomiting may start here. If it is not cured before the seventh hour after being stung it becomes increasingly harder to cure. The venom also makes the wound more susceptible to infection by other ailments and diseases. As the seventh hour hits the victim will enter an extreme feverish state and necrosis along with bleeding increases. Twelve hours after the wound, unless they have been cured, the victim will die painfully as blood in the lungs suffocates them and the venom attacks the nervous system and the heart. The victim has ten hours to be treated before the condition becomes incurable. If not treated within 8 hours the victim will have permanent tissue loss and damage. If treated within the first eight hours, the victim may, depending on the deepness of the wound and the areas affected by necrosis, have permanent scaring and possible recurring pain in the wound. The venom always has the same effects, but the smaller and younger a dragon is, the quicker it acts. This is because in a smaller dragon, it takes less time to reach the vital organs from the surface wound. A hatchling would only have around 4 hours before the venom became incurable.

For now, an antidote can be concocted using multiple different types of antivenom. The antidote is best administered by injection or insertion into the main wound. (I'd make this more specific but...)

Strengths: Rage: His anger makes him almost unstoppable if it gets far enough. When he gets fully enraged he'll become numb to any other feelings or emotions. This means that he won't feel weakness, pain, fear or anything that might get in the way of his rage.
Access: Seph, being a Spion, has access to information on dragons that would normally be completely unknown.
Extreme Training: He's trained regularly in the military, and he trains on his own as well. He's incredibly good at melee and close range combat. He excels in all forms of combat, but tends to try and push opponents into close range combat.
Experience: He's killed before... And he won't hesitate to do it again.


Weaknesses: Rage: His anger is an extreme weakness as well as a strength. When he's enraged enough he will kill anyone that he believes is a threat to him without even caring who it is.
Position: He's a known target of several criminal groups that he's been slowly exterminating behind his handler's backs. It's quite possible that he's targeted even by other Spions who would like to surpass him but can't.
Loyalty to the Xoyan Military: He's loyal to the Xoyan military which means that he might even kill someone he knew if he thought their reasoning was good enough... He'd follow almost all orders without question, as his handlers and trainers are the only family he's ever really known.
Distrust: He doesn't trust others at all. Even the dragons he knows are sometimes kept in the dark. This also means that no one can trust him for sure, as he may keep secrets that could help or hinder others.
Killer: The fact that he's killed several dragons makes it hard for him to make connections with people who know about his past.
Fire: His fur is flammable, so fire and flame magic is strong against him. If too much of it caught fire it'd burn in between his scales...
Physical: His brute strength is not very good, so he tends to rely on his magic and incapacitating or weakening slashes.

Fighting Style: He tends to opt for melee combat. He slashes extremely quickly at joints and tendons to incapacitate dragons. Later in his training he will be able to do this within a few seconds. Depending on his instructions if he has a target, he will either kill or only incapacitate the target. A stab from his tail would most likely mean death and a scratch would mean serious injury and possibly paralysis.
Magic:
Shielding: He is capable of forming small shapes or plates of magical shielding. He can keep small(around 10ft in diameter or smaller) shapes or plates up for 4 posts, or he can conjure a full body shield that protects him from all directions for 1 post. The full body shield takes 4 posts to recharge. Small shields of 5ft in diameter or larger take 3 posts to recharge. Small shields of 5ft or less take only 2 posts to recharge. He can conjure up to three small shields at once. Both types of shield can hold up against 1.5 posts of a dragons strongest breath attack, and they can hold up against 3 full strength physical hits from a dragon.
Assassin's Blades: He can conjure magical blade-like projectiles that can either abide by the laws of physics, or travel in perfect lines. The projectiles can either be made to pierce through objects, or they can stick into objects. Piercing blades can travel for up to 100ft and can pierce through up to 6ft of material depending on the strength of said material(Scales can only be pierced a few inches, steel could be pierced up to a foot, and wood can be pierced up to 4 ft). They will disappear immediately after they stop moving. Depending on the angle, these blades may be deflected off of scales. Non-piercing blades can travel up to 200ft and will stab into targets(much like throwing knives) disappearing 2 posts after impact. These blades travel at speeds of 20ft per second. They serve to cause bleeding that would weaken opponents slowly and cause pain. Both thrown blade types can be conjured in groups of up to 5 and can only be re-conjured once they dissipate. He can also create pawheld blades of up to 24ft in length that can easily slice through anything but magical shielding. Said blades can be in any shape he imagines. If he's in close quarters, then he could make a dagger-like shape, but if he's in open spaces, then he can use longer blades. They'd cut through inorganic material more easily than scales and flesh, but when they contacted scales they'd act like more normal blades(They can get stuck in flesh or slice through it as an extremely sharp blade would.). If the pawheld blades are separated from his touch for too long(2 minutes) they fizzle away. They can only be broken by similar magic or by hitting a magical shield too hard. He can dissipate the blades at any point if needed. He can keep up two full size blades up at a time until they dissipate, are broken, or are separated from his touch. He can reform the blades one post after they break as they take up very little of his magical capacity.
Power of the Hidden: He can make himself completely silent, odorless, and invisible for up to 3 posts at a time. He cannot interact with anyone while using this power, and if he does touch another dragon in any way the power will wear off instantly.
Telepathic Shield: He's spent years developing a weak shield against telepaths, so to a telepath his mind always seems to give off a weird, unsettling, calm feeling. This shield however is still in development, and it is weak... He is able to shield his deepest secrets, but a telepath may still end up finding out more than he'd like...

How is his loyalty a weakness? It's more of a personality trait isn't it? Need to explain how exactly it is a weakness; does this mean he will be blindly loyal and trusting to his superiors, and believe them even if they said his parents were alive? (<- just an example)

same goes for distrust...isn't this a strength, as in, he won't be taken in so easily?

For abilities, Skype.

One laaast thing, I promise!!

'Untrustworthy: Being a Spion he will give almost any information that his superiors ask of him on anyone he knows about. Others may find themselves exposed or have confidential information given to the higher-ups of the Xoyan military.'

Are you sure this is a weakness??? I don't quite find it one? Please explain:P

A few things. Is the venom's effects the same against all sizes and ages of dragons? Also, you can't attack while in your power of the hidden state, can you?

I'd say to make the power of the hidden so you can't interact with others while invisible, and when you attack someone else, the invisibility will go away.
