AGE 240 • DEMON • MALE PRINCE OF KNAVES • CAD OF CARDS • ROBBER BARON
“I am Envy, begotten of a chimney-sweeper and an oyster-wife. I cannot read, and therefore wish all books were burnt; I am lean with seeing others eat - O that there would come a famine through all the world, that all might die, and I live alone; then thou should'st see how fat I would be! But must thou sit and I stand? Come down, with a vengeance!”
Mammon, is tall and muscular with squared shoulders and a pointed face with sunken almost hollow cheeks, his skin is the colour of bone white ebony, about six feet tall with graying blonde hair as if all but the most marginal of colour was sapped out through him, he has a pointed goatee that ends in bristling facial hair.
He wears a loose fitting shirt his chest laid bare for all to see long divides and cut running through his chest twinning themselves in small rings, broad shoulders and the eyes of a lazy predator. His head ends in two horns that end in multiple points, the eye’s tucked into his face burn bright with the wispy pale fire sparkling with dark intent, a curved smile always touching the thin outline of his lips pursed up in a knowing smile that said without needing the word’s ‘wouldn’t you like to know?’.
Demon King: Mammon transformation take on the traditional appearance of a demon, his face distorts and becomes more animalistic growing into a snout his body gains a coat of shaggy matted fur, a second of set of hour glass eye's open up forcing the skin around them to stretch and weep, his arms and leg's elongate and his feet become cloven. He grows a large pot belly covered in hair/fur that sags down grotesquely.
Not only does his transformation affect him physically but mentally, he becomes far more abrasive and to the point and his voice has braying gravely quality somewhere between goat and the sound of a landslide.
Destruction King: A towering figure with two horns a reddish hue to its skin, like that of old blood and a pair of flame seared wing’s with eyes that smoulder like embers, this creature is wreathed in fire.
While this transformation is terrible to behold, but mentally it is something else. While in this form Mammon is almost compelled to dominate those around, treating allies little better than enemies.
Personality: Mammon, is a creature of deals and would rather talk his way out of situations, he is a glutton when it comes to indulging himself and is content to pamper and treat himself to cost of others, he is greedy and will steal, rob, and burgle if it suits his needs. He'll abuse those weaker than himself but will present a mask of manners to those on equal standing or above. But when pressed to combat will do everything in his power to reach his goal, employing deceitful tactics, and has no qualms about ganging up on someone. In truth he is a coward, and will flee or surrender if pressed harried to the point where he might loose he will retreat even if he has a chance of victory.
➣S T A RT ▪ People speak of a realm of opposites neither existing in the material nor the spiritual, a mirror realm that is on the very tip of our own. A realm of opposites, dreams and nightmares.
Mammon, was born a courtier on one of the many demonic backwaters enjoying the station of being the twelfth cousin to the Makaio, and likewise twelfth to the throne of that bit of land. What this meant was he had enough funds to do as he pleased and no responsibilities to please. The son of a wealthy merchant, Mammon knew he was destined to rule. Or so he personally thought, from an early age he found himself living the easy life, and like so many before him he had neither the understanding nor the will to appreciate it and yearned for more.
Raised in the art of the court as it was the fashion, he was taught of the arts, the poets and the blade. To imagine the arts of the court one might imagine the world as it was in the 14th century the renaissance, while this builds the groundwork it simply doesn’t do it justice. If someone hadn’t died of poison, two assassins hanged a revolution put down it was considered a slow day. It was court intrigue on steroids, and state stood on a knife's edge so when I say that you have to imagine one big tough son of a gun holding it all together, the Kurgan meets Satan.
He was a demonic dandy by his youth, flowery suits, puffy pants and a rapier at his side and some unimaginable smart poem that sounded dumb from him on his tongue, but he was still a demon so he’d sell you the moon and stab you in the back all at the same. He played court and caused trouble, oh those wily youth the elders would say as they pushed an old lady down a well, it was still demon trouble which was a bit more violent than the garden variety.
He was a contract demon, which was a mystical way of saying he was a kind of lawyer. Not that he defended people but he got people to sign bits of paper and handle a bit of accounting. When it came to another revolution he had back the wrong horse, he had leant money out that in turn financed some weapons so when the heads men was sent for and the revolutionaries put to the block he was so far down the list that the headsmen just didn’t really have the time, so he was banished his station removed and was cast out into the wider world. He traveled around doing paper work, from beggar to sketchy businessman he stole, burgled and scammed his way around the demon realm. “Try Mammon new cure-all elixir, it’ll fix what ails you. Put a kick in that step shine that cart and fix your marriage!”
Needless to say he pissed a lot of people off, well that wouldn’t be right he pissed a lot of demons off and well the noose was getting drawn around his neck. And he’d take the hangman's hand and do the hempen jig if he didn’t leave, so he did. Oh sure it took a long walk, waiting for countless hours and waiting for more but there are holes between. And slipping into the mortal world from the next wasn’t hard, people said it was something about intent or magic. Summoning circles and the like, so whether he was accidentally called up by some high schoolers trying out BLACK MAGIC, or stepped out of someone's closet didn’t mean much, he was there now.
"There are myths that demons cannot cross lines of salt, cannot abide the touch of silver or walk on holy land. It is not that simple, the world is full of these stories and whether it is belief itself that gives it power or strange and alien rules, these remain. After all these are creatures that come from the tip of the universe."
➣If he makes a bargain he must fulfill it ➣ Recoils at the sight or touch of a holy item
➣If asked a question three times he cannot lie
➣Cannot speak in the presence of a ringing bell ➣ Cannot step foot onto holy land(a ruined or abandoned church is fair game)
➣If beaten at a game of chance he must fulfill three requests(within his power)
➣Can be bound in a circle with his symbol next to it (a serpent wrapped around a chalice) ➣Can be forced to fulfill a request if you speak his full name (MAMMON CRUDELIS ANGELUS)
➣EVIL FLAME ▪ breathing out a mote of fire from his mouth that severely burns its target(s), and causes destructive effects to any area that is caught within the flames. [Custom Demon Ability]
INFESTATION ▪ Expelling a swarm of insects out through the mouth they charge biting and gnashing anything in their way, sometimes stripping the flesh from the bone.
Description: The user uses his body as a conduit for the demon realm, essentially creating small rifts inside their body letting the raw energy and smaller things gather in their body, until expelling them through the mouth and or nose creating a swarm of wailing nashing insects, not wholly of this world they are the stuff of nightmares and rush out towards the nearest target, upon swarming their target or destruction they quickly disperse or simply drop dead, as the change between realm is often fatal for these small creatures.
➣ [N1]POWER ENERGY BALL ▪ he expels his power out into a ball creating a sphere of energy and then fires it at his opponent.
Bat Outta Hell: Mechanically this functions as a V2 and UV3 with the homing variant(except the N1 of course). This technique calls upon otherworldly forces drawing forth spirits from the demonic realm and giving them form when they finally burst through the veil between realms they appear as large bat-like creatures doused in radiant flames, these creatures seek out their summoners foe and dive towards it exploding on contact.
Hell Fire: Mechanically this functions as a V2 and UV3 with the piercing variant(except the N1 of course). It is said when Prometheus stole fire and gifted it to man, and for it, he is eternally punished, chained to a rock in hell where his liver is eaten daily by an eagle. But what a lot of haven't said is that the first demons also took a part of that flame, and in their hellish abode they altered it, changed it, this fire burns on water, eats through solid stone and turns men to so much ash.
HAND OF THE DEMON ▪ The user opens up a hole into the demonic real funnelling whatever attack was intended for him, which can appear as a dark vortex in front of him or the size of his hand as if he did the 'talk to the hand' and it worked. However, attacks that are too big can shatter his technique and leave him vulnerable.
➣ [N1] HAND OF THE DEMON ▪ Mechanically: Through some proper Ki Manipulation, you've gained the ability to summon a barrier made of Ki! It charges at 33% per turn
➣ [UP2] HAND OF THE DEMON ▪ Mechanically: Through some proper Ki Manipulation, you've gained the ability to summon a barrier made of Ki! It charges at 66% per turn
➣ [MP3] HAND OF THE DEMON ▪ Mechanically: Through some proper Ki Manipulation, you've gained the ability to summon a barrier made of Ki! It charges at 100% per turn
➣[SU1] BINDERS CAGE ▪ The user wraps themselves around their victim essentially stunning for 1 round at 100% PL, can disrupt a charging attack if the stun power level is within 80% of the opponent's attack's power level.
Description: Functionally it works akin to the Full Nelson technique that is used throughout the series, or the Bear Hug it incapacitates an opponent through the method of locking ones arms around the victims arm pits, or simply closing them around their chest effectively restricting movement. It may also combine a number of other small details depending on the elasticity of the user, such as wrapping someones feet around his foe legs, or even sinking ones teeth into him for a better grip.
Flavour: The user attaches themselves to the opponent, with a trick of ki he simply flows like water his body writhes over its victim the bones loosing solidity and the flesh becoming malleable, and when the user finally snaps back to normal they have ensnared their opponent with the placement of their arms and leg's.
➣[SU]KI SENSE ▪ he may send his senses out to explore the surrounding area probing for Ki, and giving its power a name in the digits.
➣[UT1] BINDERS CALL ▪ Functionally it works almost identically to the Multi Form technique, while the multi form calls forth an exact duplicate of the user Binders Call, brings forth a Ki construct dividing your power evenly between yourself and the construct.
Flavour: The user calls out in low hushed tone binding the alien sentience of an outsider, be it a demon or malign presence left over from some great evil that is on the cusp of the realm where the veils wanes and thins, the user binds it to the Ki. The creature appears as a gaunt humanoid hunched over, its skin taut around a wiry frame of bones and is of a dark nature. Once destroyed the presence animating the borrowed Ki is sent back to where it was drawn from.
➣ [UT] FLIGHT ▪ he fills his body with power rendering him the ability to fly and hover at will.
DARK GATE ▪ The user tears a hole in the fabric of the universe simply stepping outside it to elsewhere(demonic realm) by making a complex gesture and speaking in a long dead language. The user, however, reappears a few feet away from where he entered and a few seconds later he reappears like nothing happened and the gate closes.
➣ [SU1] DARK GATE ▪ Mechanically: Dodge's techniques beneath 100% of your PL. This technique uses 1 KP in KP Battles and cannot be charged.
➣ [SU2] DARK GATE ▪ Mechanically: Dodge's techniques beneath 200% of your PL This technique uses 2 KP in KP Battles and cannot be charged.
➣ [SU3] DARK GATE ▪ Mechanically: Dodge's techniques beneath 300% of your PL. This technique uses 3 KP in KP Battles and cannot be charged.
Description: The user shrouds themselves in Ki, wearing it as a cloak as might a thief wear midnight, the user transforms under dark magic taking on the guise of their choosing, tho under a careful eye some are able to pierce the deception. The illusion withers and writhes and slides from the wearer, their features reverting back into their own.
Description/mechanical: You are capable of suppressing your power in order to better hide yourself from the gaze of those with Energy Sensing or those utilizing a Scouter, so long as you are not making use of powerful techniques(anything that would consume KP in a KP Battle) you can remain undetected by friends and foes alike! This technique uses 0 KP in a KP Battle.
Demonic Vision ▪ Like many demons before him he has learned to communicate through the power of the mind, directly delivering his commands or images through the frontal lobe. Like many of his kith and kin he cares little for the discomfort, this causes the recipient, instead only that his message is received and followed. The demon uses his will to expand out usually pushing thoughts and day dreams out of the target, and due to the nature of the power this can make the individual feel uncomfortable, or that they've been violated some how. This technique works exactly the same as telepathy.
[UT1] to communicate with those they are familiar with across the planet they are currently on via mental transmission
[UT2] the same plane of existence as yourself (Living World, Otherworld, Demon Realm(?))
[UT] Hell's Abode ▪ The demon channels the realm that spawned it filling his muscles with new strength, usually materializing as larger muscle mass and a thicker aura, tho this technique while powerful has a fatal flaw making him much slower and unable to defend himself as easily. This technique works exactly the same as Power Weighted.
