Personality: Upon first talking with Callio one is easily able to tell that the young man has an attitude problem, he’s rude and doesn't find the time to give into thing like social cues. Situations that require someone to talk politely to someone else are situations you don't want Callio involved in; he'll hurt your feelings and won’t give a second thought to it. Though this actually only applies for when Callio actual opens his mouth to talk, he normally doesn't bother interacting with others preferring to keep to himself. He’s built up a wall around his emotions and only allows a select few to actual peak behind the barrier he’s built for himself. The ones who actually manage to get Callio to let down his wall for them will find that he’s a caring and protective person to those close to him, easily willing to give up his life to ensure they don't come to harm. When around these special people Callio is able to loosen up on his rather rude and serious attitude to become a person able to crack wise remarks and enjoy laughs, albeit the jokes that he makes aren't very good.
Despite the fact he comes off as brash and unintelligent Callio does actually have a good head on his shoulders, and he is rather smart for someone who's grown up living the life that he has. This is in part due to the fact he has an eidetic memory allowing him to recall events and images that he’s seen with great clarity, and while that alone doesn't result in him being smart it has certainly helped him catch up others. The young man also tends to be rather impatient in the sense that he has hard time sitting still and doing nothing with his time; if he could be doing something else then he would rather be doing something else. This can easily get on people’s nerves for the simple fact that if he’s supposed to be waiting for them, he'll wander off to find something better to do instead of just standing still. Creativity is something Callio has in abundance which actually works out rather well for him because of how he can effectively develop his own unique ki attacks.
Despite how hard he tries to hide from the world Callio is an emotionally frail person, and the death of the woman he’s love hasn't helped this at all. While the past two years of his life have certainly helped him learn to deal with the loss of Sarah, it hasn't taken away the pain he feels in his heart. Sometimes certain smells or sounds can trigger memories about her and his heart will begin to twitch and ache as he knows he'll never be able to see her again, and there can even be days where for no reason he finds himself remembering and won’t have the energy do anything at all. It’s easy to tell that moving on will be hard for him to do, if he can even do it at all but should a enough time pass or perhaps someone new enters into his life just maybe he'll move on. While Sarah's death has hurt him the most, the lives of the others he has lost had touched his heart as well.
Having grown up poor and on the streets Callio has picked up quite a few tricks from that time that he still puts to use today, one of them being how to read a person. It’s easy for Callio to tell the kind of person he’s dealing with just by looking at them as often times that’s all you really need, the way a person stands, dresses, or even moves their hands can tell you a lot about them and Callio has picked up on how to read those signs. Another thing that has hasn't left Callio since his time on the streets is his will to survive. The young man will do just about anything to make sure he keeps himself alive to live another day. It’s for that reason that killing isn't something Callio has very little problem with doing, if you're stopping him from seeing the next sunset and the only way to get you to move is to kill you then so be it he'll do it. That isn't to say that he enjoys the actions because he really doesn't enjoy it at all, he likes to think of it as a last resort.
Like any person with Saiyan blood flowing through their veins Callio has a natural urge to fight, and often times this can be his first response to a situation. While the human half of him makes these urges easier to fight, it can sometimes be a little too much for the young half Saiyan to deal with. His Saiyan blood also makes him slightly easier to anger than others, and while anger can be a powerful emotion it can also be deadly to the person under its effects.
History: Several hundred years from now the planets of Vegeta and Earth have found a way to peaceful co-exist in such a way that, the mating of the two races has become common place. It is within these years of peace between the humans and the Saiyans that Callio was born. His father was a low-class Saiyan warrior by the name of Kail, his mother your common Earth girl trying to do her best in the big bad world. Kami only knows what caused these two fall in love, but regardless they did and nine months later Callio was born. A red-headed baby with a power level fitting that of your everyday Earthling. His father was not impressed, his mother on the other hand was happy to have been blessed with such a lovely baby boy.
As far she was concern there was no need for warriors in this time of peace amongst the races of the galaxy. He learned from an early age however, that his father refused for his son to be some squabbling school boy working a nine-five job. Thus from the moment he was able to walk and understand the words that were spoken by others, he was forced to train. He and his father would spend their nights toiling away outside of their house, fists clashing against fist. To say that he liked this kind of life would have been a lie, but to also say that he disliked it wouldn't be the truth either. A conflicting storm of a emotions would brew inside of the young Callio for quite some time during his early years.
His life continued on rather repetitive pattern as the years went on. Go to school, do your homework, train, go to sleep, and wash and repeat. He was given little time for interaction with others, and by the time he was twelve he was nothing more than a social outcast to those around him. He would rudely reply to others, and would be blunt in how he dealt with any kind of social situation. It seemed like he'd be living this kind of life for the rest of his days, but then the war happened. If you could even call it that it was more like a total invasion. The Arcosian Empire stormed Earth, warriors dressed in battle attire made their way onto the planet’s surface. The planet had little time to react to the invading force, many lives were lost in the first attack. In only few short months the entire planet was turned into a battlefield.
Saiyan and Humans fought together against the Arcosian invasion. Callio's father was one of the first Saiyans to leave, and when he did he left the job of protecting his wife onto the hands of his son. When Callio's father left the house all those years ago the young half Saiyan knew he'd never see his father again. Right he was too, because his father never came walking back through those doors. They weren't able to stay in West City for long after that. Callio and his mother retreated towards the North City just as the Arcosian's were laying waste to it. Falling to the north did them little good however, as shortly after North City too was attacked.
Callio tried to escape with his mother in toe, but as they went to do so the two found themselves surrounded by a group of low-class warriors. Callio had no choice but to fight, and use everything his father had taught him to his advantage. Energy blasts tore through the sky as Callio did his best to defend the woman who had given birth to him. It did little good, these warrior were clearly stronger than the thirteen year old. He might have been able to take on one of them, but three? No. He fell down from the sky bloody and beaten. In a twisted act the Arcosian warriors made Callio watch as they sent energy blast, after energy blast into his mother. He cried out in both anger and pain as her body fell lifeless in front of him.
"Don't worry boy you'll join her soon."
Their threats rang through his ears, and just as they were about to finish him off they too fell. Callio had been saved by a Saiyan named Bark, and with him was his daughter Sarah. After saving Callio he told him to follow them, for Bark knew of a place they could hide until things calmed down. Bark led Callio to a bunker, one where both Sarah and he could hide. Bark refused to stay in hiding, he was warrior and as a warrior he would fight. Callio must have spent what felt like weeks inside of that bunker, the sounds of battle raging on above him and Sarah. He'd have lost his mind if Sarah hadn't been there. She was his comfort during this dark time, and he was hers.
A Year Later
The war had ended. The Arcosians had won and Earth was now theirs to do with as they pleased. Instead of blowing up the planet, they turned into a harsh place to live. Ruled over it with an iron grip and anyone who disobeyed them was met with death. Yes, Earth was now under an Arcosian Dictatorship. Callio and Sarah had to live the rest of their lives in this world, and they had to do so poor. It was a struggle, a lot of the time it was kill or be killed and Callio had to learn how to be harsh. Had to learn how to read people, to understand who could be trusted and who was trying to bullshit you out what you had. He could handle it though. As long as he had Sarah, as long as he had someone like her to keep him sane...keep him stable.
Three years. That's how long he dealt with everything, that's how long he spent living this life that had become normal for him. How long he lived his days with an anger building up inside of him, one that he wasn't sure he'd be able to control much longer. Everything finally came crashing down though. Life finally had put him back into the place it felt he deserved to be, and that was at the bottom of the trash.
He had been getting food for him Sarah; he had been gone for maybe two hours. When he returned from getting food he found the door to their ruined little place wide open, and inside of it was two thugs. Both Saiyans. Both working for the Arcosains, and they had thought it be a good idea to pick on someone that day. Sarah had just gotten unlucky. They were attacking her, and something inside of Callio's head snapped. He attacked them back. Blinded by his rage he had no idea what he was doing, but when he came to...he had three bodies beside him. The two thugs and Sarah's own body. He was covered in blood, and his mind rushed to the only logical conclusion. More anger filled him, and he ran through the streets energy blast after energy blast escaping from his hands.
Tears streamed down his face as he found himself getting lost within his grief. He began to fly, going higher, and higher. He went so high up that he found himself in space, and with a powerful roar he let out an explosion of all the Ki he could muster. The resulting Explosive Wave drained him of all his energy, and on his crash course towards the Earth something happened. A distortion within the fabric of space and time, and Callio was flung backwards through time. Reaching towards a point in Earth's history where none of the things that had taken place had happened.
He came to a few hours later and found himself on this strange new Earth. He was still numb, so very numb. He could do little but wander, and that's all he's been doing for the past three years.
Bloody Cannon[N1] A technique that functions similarly to the Galick Gun, in that Callio builds up his ki into the palm of his hands. As the red ki begins to build and form a sphere within the gap present between his two hands, he'll buckle his knees allowing himself more stability when firing. When he feels as though he has spent enough time charging the attack he will fire, pushing his hands forward and releasing the brilliant red beam of ki.
Bloody Bazooka[UP2] Bloody Bazooka is a product of Callio's desire to improve upon his Bloody Cannon. While the stance to perform the technique is the same as before the level of power placed into is greatly improved. The sphere of red ki that forms within his hands is not only larger in size but also darker in color than it was before. The aura that surrounds his body has also taken on a darker nature, while assuming a fire like nature. Just like before Callio will push his hands forward and release the crimson energy in the form of a larger and more powerful beam of ki.
Bloody Magnum[MP3] Bloody Magnum takes Callio's desire to improve upon his Bloody Cannon to the extreme. While the stance to perform the technique is the same as before the level of power placed into is greatly improved. The sphere of red ki that forms between his hands oddly enough shrinks in size compared to the previous version of the attack. The color of the ki sphere however still retains the dark shade of the Bloody Bazooka. The aura present around Callio's body has now fully assumed the nature of a roaring flame. Just like before Callio will push his hands forward and release the crimson energy however despite the size of the sphere within his hands the energy beam in which he releases is massive in size, and capable of unprecedented amounts of destruction.
Vengeful Incineration[N1] Just as deadly as the name implies. By sending large amounts of his ki into the tips of his fingers and then tracing them through the air, Callio is capable of creating floating shards of fire-like ki. These twenty thin fire-like shards of energy will then launch themselves towards an enemy for an unrelenting barrage of damage; each one housing but a small portion of Callio's power. - Locked [35,000 PL]
Crimson Grenade[N1] A technique that was used by Callio's father and one that he learned to mimic with enough practice. He'll form a sphere of brilliant red ki into the palm of either his right or left hand; and then toss it underhand towards his intended target. Upon making contact with an enemy or surface it will then explode in a brilliant shade of red.
Explosive Wave[N1] By forcing his ki outward from his body Callio is able to cause an explosion in a short distance around him, only reaching out about five feet. Because of the short reach the technique is best used when the enemy is close, or when trying to escape from a grapple.
Ashmaker[N1] You know how they say smoking cigarettes is hazardous to your health? They were right, what they didn't tell you is that it does more damage to those around you than yourself. Callio will take a lit(or unlit) cigarette and fill it with a decent portion of his Ki, he will then flick it towards a target. The moment it touches something the cigarette will explode causing a rush of ki-fire to engulf whatever it touched.
Flight[SU] By channeling his Ki into his feet and picturing himself as weightless Callio is able to defy gravity itself, and lift off the ground. Once up in the air he is able to soar through the skies as if gravity was putting no pressure down upon his body. Worth noting is that the more gravity a planet or location has, the harder it is for Callio to actually obtain flight.
Ki Sensing[SU] It took practice but Callio has learned how to enhance his senses in such a way that he is able to sense the Ki of those around him. Certainly the range his Ki Sensing is short but it's to prevent others from sneaking up on him.
Blaze Movement[SU1] Using a sudden burst of speed mixed with his ki Callio is able to moving so fast that he leaves behind a flame-like afterimage of himself to fool the enemy. This also allows him to avoid attacks are equal to 100% of his current Power Level, a useful move for dodging attacks that would otherwise be inescapable.
Burning Blood[SU] While tapping into his true potential Callio has learned to further increase his power at the cost of making himself slower and more prone to damage. He does by increasing the amount of blood flow produced within his body, and increasing the amount of muscle he has in order to keep up with the increased flow. The result is Callio appearing much larger and bulkier than he actually is. - Locked [40,000 PL]
Hidden Potential[x4] When pushed to his limits, or when the anger boiling over inside of him becomes far too much for him to handle Callio is able to tap into the dormant power within himself temporarily. While offering no physical changes to his appearance his vibrant red aura began to grow violent, moving in such a way that it's almost like a wildfire. While like this Callio is able to pull all of his energy into one powerful Bloody Cannon, or execute a brief burst in power.
Mastered Potential[x4] [35,000 PL Required] When pushed to his limits, or when the anger boiling over inside of him becomes far too much for him to handle Callio is able to tap into the dormant power within himself temporarily. While offering no physical changes to his appearance his vibrant red aura began to grow violent, moving in such a way that it's almost like a wildfire. Years of training and pushing himself to his limits has finally allowed Callio to bring forth this power whenever he desires. He is no longer limited to brief bursts of power with the ability either, and is thus capable of substituting the four times increase to his power indefinitely
