— strange attractorName: Beryl Roarke
▰ The human race is the dominant species on planet Earth. The general populace is weak in combat, but they do have the potential to become fierce combatants through the utilization of ki. Humans generally have the largest flexibility of beliefs and moralities in the galaxy. Due to often being physically weaker than the opposition, humans have managed to adapt to this by being able to create techniques at a faster rate, every 4000 battle-power gained as opposed to 6000. In addition, Humans have a very natural liking to the value of material objects. Human characters start off with 500 additional zeni and gain 10% additional zeni in Zeni Threads.Gender: Male
Age: Twenty-three 
Date of Birth: June 8th
Marital Status: Single
Profession: Ki Researcher [Prospective Master]
▰ The use of ki has given earthlings the ability to compete on par with the numerous, more naturally powerful races that inhabit the universe. While most view and learn about ki from a spiritual point of view, Beryl is interested in looking at it through a scientific standpoint as well. In fact, he hopes to open his own dojo one day.Affiliation: Galactic Patrol [Leader]
▰ Currently, Beryl's the leader of the newly revived Galactic Patrol. The job's tough, and he never expected to be granted the position. Nonetheless, he's making the best of it.Fighting Style: Purely physical. Unable to mold ki outside of his body. Very rarely kicks; instead focuses on punches, elbows and grabs.
▰ Height – 5’6”
▰ Weight – 130 lbs
▰ Hair – Short, black, kept low (no longer than a few inches in length). Often hidden by headgear. Slightly wavy, wiry.
▰ Eyes- Dark-brown. Warm, humble but hardened, toughened.
▰ Skin – Dark-brown. Network of scars covering his arms. Two distinct, diagonal scars on his face, one on each of his cheeks. Falls victim to the occasional outbreak of acne. Few birthmarks and blemishes.
▰ Facial Features – General features are rounded with a blunt chin, full lips and thick eyebrows. Often looks tired or bored even when he’s not; that’s just his “default” facial expression. Scars on cheeks look painful though for now, there’s no pain involved, physical pain at least. Shaves often due to preference of having no facial hair.
▰ Body – Average physique. Does enough physical activity to be considered healthy (even if his physical capabilities are superhuman by human standards). Seems to be built more for agility than for strength or straight-up speed.
▰ Attire – Standard outfit consists of a bright yellow hat (cap or beanie), black t-shirt with the Galactic Patrol logo printed in dark-green along with a plain, long-sleeved white t-shirt worn underneath, plain gray pants with matching black and silver sneakers. Wears all kinds of colors but tends to stick with yellows, oranges, greens, grays, black and white. When the temperature's appropriate, he'll also wear hoodies, sweatshirts and jackets.
"You want to know my life story?— techniques
If you were expecting some kind of amazing, tear-jerking story, then you're going to be disappointed. I grew up just like any ordinary Earthling; there's nothing special to note--. Actually, I take that back. There is something: my discovery of Ki. You do know what ki is, right? It's the only reason why human beings can compete with the other races out there in the universe. Technological advancement is one thing but Ki can accomplish things that technology cannot. I've seen the use of Ki ever since I was little but I wasn't until a few years ago that I've actually been able to use it first hand. I enrolled in one of this martial arts dojos, you know, the ones that have been popping all over the place since Ki manipulation has become widespread.
Ever since I started studying Ki, I've been learning more and more as to why it is integral in the survival of the human species. Without ki, we are basically defenseless against any outside threat. There is only so much that technology can do when it comes to the protection of our planet. Not only that, but there are civilizations out there that are light years ahead of us when it comes to technological advancement. Plus, I hate to say this, but not all of them are peaceful. In fact, the ones who are most advanced are also the most bloodthirsty; they truly "believe" that they have a right to the universe and everything in it, and they'll stop at nothing to get what they want. I didn't take up martial arts and Ki just out of pure enjoyment. I did it because I had to. Because when things get ugly, I want to be able to defend myself, to stand on my own two feet. I don't want to just run around in a panic, something that we Earthlings are really good at. No, things will be different. This time, we're going to be the ones making a stand and sending a statement to everyone out there that they can't just come to our home and do what they want.
... Well, that certainly got emotional but you see my point. I want to be a Ki researcher. You know, find out everything there is to know about Ki. We understand a lot already but there is so much more that we do not understand. I can only imagine how much good can be done if we manage to unlock all of the secrets to this mysterious power that is in every living being.
I just want to be the best I possibly can. I didn't make the best of decisions when I was younger. I was decent in school and I tried to listen to my parents. However, I felt like I knew more than I actually did and it got me into a lot of trouble. Hanging with the wrong crowd, getting into shady things... I've finally decided to break this stupid smoking habit I have. That crave for a cigarette ... I want to replace that with a craving for knowledge. The road that I was going down before was good. I didn't have goals, aspirations, anything. I just went with the flow ... in a bad way. I'm just ... sick of people thinking that I'm just a bum, especially my parents. You know, they took the time and effort to try and raise me right despite all of the nonsense that goes on in this world. The least that I can do is try to make something of myself.
... Looks like my life story turned into a moment on the soap box. Sorry. I'm not proud of the stuff I've done in the past; now's my chance to make things right. First things first, I need to get out of North Capitol and go see the rest of the world; it's the only way that I'll learn new things and more about Ki in particular."
Capsule Breaker [N1,UP2,MP3]
Capsule Breaker, in the simplest terms, is a technique that dramatically increases the concussive power of Beryl's punches. He proposes that if his power is great enough, he can literally launch people into orbit with a single punch. Is that true? It’s probably best if no one finds out for sure. Deals 33%/66%/100% of PL in damage.Point Blank [V2, UV3]Grass Cutter [N1,UP2,MP3]
A variation of the Capsule Breaker that launches a near-immediate second strike if his initial one misses. Deals 33%/66% of PL in damage. Homing Variant of Capsule Breaker.
Thunderstruck [V2, UV3]
A variation of the Capsule Breaker that stuns an opponent for 100% of Beryl’s PL. If the stun is within 80% of the opponent’s PL, then whatever techniques they’re charging becomes interrupted. Deals 33%/66% of PL in damage. Stunning Variant of Capsule Breaker.
Grass Cutter allows Beryl's physical strikes to deal piercing and cutting damage. It doesn’t matter if the strike is a punch, elbow, headbutt, kick, knee or anything in between; they all cut the same. This technique can allow Beryl to deliver frightening cuts and lacerations; if the blow is powerful enough, he can even lop off limbs or slice people in half with a single punch. This is a messy technique for sure, but it’s quite lethal as well. Deals 33%/66%/100% of PL in damage.Sudden Return [V2, UV3]Quick Access [N1,UP2,MP3]
A variation of the Grass Cutter that launches a near-immediate second strike if his initial one misses. Deals 33%/66% of PL in damage. Homing Variant of Grass Cutter.
Bamboo Cutter [V2, UV3]
A variation of the Grass Cutter that deals 11%/22% of PL in damage over the course of three turns. Damage Over Time Variant of Grass Cutter.
Beryl quickly engages his target before attempting to pummel them with a series of rapid punches. The twentieth and last punch sends the target flying backwards, that is if it hits. While each individual punch isn't particularly powerful, the sheer number of hits quickly piles on the damage; it's not out of question for victims to literally be beaten into a pulp if they eat all of the hits. Deals 33%/66%/100% of PL in damage.
Anything in Beryl’s hands can be used as a weapon. Chairs, pens, pipes, playing cards, rocks, kitchen utensils, a toothpick – it doesn’t matter. If there’s any object in Beryl’s reach, he’ll be able to find some way to weaponize it, no matter how odd or strange it may be. Deals 33%/66%/100% of PL in damage.
High-speed movement is incredibly useful, and Beryl managed to create his own variation of the Rapid Movement technique. With a quick explosion of speed, he’s able to move from one place to another near instantaneously. Able to dodge attacks up to 100%/200%/300% of PL.
Adaptability [SU, SU2, SU3]
A technique that allows Beryl to charge his energy freely instead of for a specific purpose. He can charge his energy for one technique, only to change it mid-charge for something else. However, once he releases the energy, he’ll have to put it all in one technique.
Flight, in the simplest of terms, is the manipulation of ki energy so that one can levitate or fly.
Ki Sense [UT]
Ki sensing is the ability to sense the location, life force, and power level of anyone; the stronger and closer the enemy, the more powerful the sensation.
A variant of Ki Sensing that allows Beryl to sense individuals based on their electrical signatures. While this doesn’t allow him to gauge power-levels, it does allow him to sense the presence of even Androids. He can also memorize electrical signatures and is able to identify people based on them alone.
Ki Suppression [UT]
Ki suppression is a technique that actually decreases someone's ki from their regular base-line. Other than increasing the power, users suppress their power. This allows for the user to hide the full extent of their power, or simply to keep a relaxed amount of energy.
Ki Setting [UT2]
You are capable of setting your power to a lower level to not only hide yourself, but also effectively fight while at this level, meaning you can make use of powerful techniques (anything that would consume KP in a KP Battle). This is great for people who want to train weaker fighters.
Being a straight physical fighter isn’t easy and comes with plenty of disadvantages. However, after learning how to perfect his unique fighting style, Beryl's physical strikes have become ... different. There's something about them that produces far more pain than the usual physical strike and while they may not cause more external or internal damage than other fighters, they often cause anyone who's unfortunate enough to get hit by them to writhe in pain. In terms of what this technique does, it causes all of Beryl's punches to cause far more pain than the typical physical strike which can no doubt mess with a fighter's morale as well as their ability to think and react.
Auto Rhythm [UT]
Beryl’s physical prowess is really something else. No matter how awkward his strikes are or how little wind-up they have, he’ll be able to hit with full power. For example, Beryl could stumble forward and be completely off-balance yet still hit someone with a punch without losing any power behind it or fall backwards and still hit someone with a full-power uppercut. This ability demonstrates Beryl’s masterful grasp of pure, hand-to-hand combat.
Utilizing your incredible power you provide yourself with enough oxygen to survive two days in the depths of space or any other oxygen deprived location, external stress such as combat can decrease this time significantly. This technique is passive and uses 0 KP in a KP Battle.
