A Born Killer...

Post by Sephtis on Sat Mar 11, 2017 12:54 am

Type: Dragon
Name: Sephtis
Alias: Doesn't have one yet. Yet...
Age: 36, Dragon years.
Gender: Male
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Personality: Sephtis... Let's just say he's got an interesting personality. He is an avid experimenter in magic, and this is starting to show. He's started to develop dangerous tendencies such as unknowingly damaging or clawing equipment. On the outside Sephtis is cold and emotionless. He tends to feel emotions, but he's very good at hiding them. 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 hopes to become an assassin 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.
Interests: Hunting. He enjoys hunting even if it's just for sport. Anything to do with magic interests him. Anything that'll get him closer to becoming an assassin will most definitely interest him.
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: Sephtis fears death and will do anything to avoid it. He also fears being weak and tries his best to hide his weaknesses. He greatly dislikes large crowds.

Weaknesses:
Magic Addiction: He is more susceptible to magical corruption than usual. This will lead to his becoming a feared and deadly killer. His avid pursuit of more magical and physical power will lead to his unhinging.
Unarmored: He only has scales on his neck and underbelly. This leaves him susceptible to attack by blades, claws, and other attacks.
Loner: As a result of his training and his early life he has almost no social ability and has also not seen much outside of his training facility and the streets he grew up on.
SkyWing Heritage: He's not immune to poisons or venoms.
Fire: His fur is flammable and would seriously damage him if it was set alight.
Murderer: His past is detrimental to almost any friendly relationship.
Rage: He'll kill anything or anyone in his path if he gets enraged enough.

Strengths:
Rage: His anger gives him unparalleled ferocity and brutality in combat.
Padded: His fur enhances his stealth ability by making his movements incredibly quiet.
Experience: He's killed before, and he won't hesitate to do it again...
Training: He's being trained to kill, and he enjoys it.

Height: 32 feet approximately.
Scales: He has small, strong scales that armor his weak points such as his neck and underbelly, but not many scales aside from those.
Eyes: His eyes are a cold, hollow, golden color. His eyes tend to give off the feeling that whatever once lived behind them is long dead.
Appearance: Sephtis is a slim and sleek dragon with fur covering the majority of his body. This fur is colored a dark green with blotches of light browns and grays throughout. (Totally not camo.) He wears no armor or anything that might cause noise. He has retractable claws so that he can retract them while sneaking around. His size makes it easier for him to hide and get away from larger dragons.

Tribe: NightWings, formerly SkyWing.
Inheritance: Majority SkyWing (77%) with some EarthWing blood (23%).
Rank: Tracker, hopes to make his way to assassin...
Family:
Father: Waldron, EarthWing. [Deceased]
Mother: Krynn, SkyWing. [Deceased]
Younger Brother: Serenus, majority EarthWing (68%). [Unknown]

Special abilities:
Deadly Stinger: 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.

Antidotes can be concocted using multiple different types of antivenom. The antidotes are best administered by injection or insertion into the main wound. (I'd make this more specific but...)

Breath of the SkyWings: Ability to breath Lightning from his SkyWing heritage.
Shielding: He is capable of forming small shapes or plates of magical shielding. He can keep small(around 6ft 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 6ft or less take only 3 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. His shields take up more of his energy than his blades. He tries not to use them too often, unless it's necessary.
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. These blades, especially the larger ones, take up some of his energy to conjure. 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 2-3 posts after they break as they take up some of his magical capacity (1-12 feet 2 posts, 12-24 feet 3 posts).

Having both blades and shields up at the same time depletes his energy more quickly than having one or the other and will tire him out more quickly.

Combat 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 a slow painful death and a scratch would mean serious injury and possibly paralysis. He tries to avoid having to use his shields and will attempt to dodge any attack he thinks he can.

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...

RP Sample: Sephtis was stalking the other dragon from a distance and had been shadowing him for a while. This was his target, and he was ready to attack at the slightest opportunity. As his target stepped into an overshadowed area in the forest, he leapt out of the underbrush and quickly snapped at the dragons neck with his jaw while jabbing at the stomach and chest with his outstretched claws. The bite misses, but one claw strikes at the heart of the dragon as the other slices across the stomach. The target is now bleeding from multiple wounds, but is still alive and capable of fighting back. Sephtis whips his venomous tail around to slash at the dragons neck while jabbing at the wings in an effort to stop his target from being able to escape. His tail strike slashes across the targets face injecting his deadly venom into the wound, and the claw strike successfully injures the wing. The target falls to the ground in pain and Sephtis knows that with the combination of his venom and the wounds inflicted he has succeeded in his mission. The target is down...

Hey, so firstly... Majority SkyWing with some EarthWing blood. How much exactly? It would help to give a percentage of each species, for example, 20% IceWing and 80% NightWing.

Second, Only FireWings can breathe fire. SkyWings have lightning breath. Also, because he is not a full EarthWing, it should be mentioned in Weaknesses that he is not immune to posions or toxins.

And I see he has some magical abilities? Even if they are limited right now, you need to list what those magical abilites are, what they do, etc.

Edits should be finished. Let me know if anything needs changing. I have not changed, added, or deleted any of his abilities. I have only elaborated on what exactly they do and for how long the effects last.

Do the throwing blades use up much of his magical energy? Do the shields? The shields at least ought to use quite a bit.

Added in that his shields take up more energy than his blades. Changed Combat Style so he tries to dodge rather than use the shields.

Added that the blades take energy, changed the Magic Addiction to be only a weakness, edited to make it clear that there are multiple antidotes.

When talking about the antidote to his venom, you should remove the words "for now". It is confusing and suggests that at some point in the future, the effects of the venom won't be able to be reversed at all.

As for the pawheld blades, they should take up some more energy than they currently do, given you can use them for as long as you want unless you break them on a magical shield, don't have them in your paws for more than two minutes, or they are broken by magic.

Edited both of the above points.

"Having both blades and shields up at the same time depletes his energy more quickly."

Okay, but the shields alone already take up energy to maintain. The pawheld blades, just using those alone, need to take up more energy. You still have that they take up very little.

Does this work?

"He can reform the blades 2-3 posts after they break as they take up some of his magical capacity (1-12 feet 2 posts, 12-24 feet 3 posts)."

Sorry this took me so long to get to... I was really sick for about a week and I just recently got to the point where I can do normal human things again. Just for if you were wondering what happened.
