††† Pendant : A simple metal loop undistinguished white stone pendant about 1.7 cm in diameter.
Other Jewelry : A variety of earrings adorn her ears, many with thin wires looping to another part of the earring.
Weaponary : Oni typically carries a few pieces of weaponary upon her body.
While not always physically on her, her most prominent weapon is her scythe: With a crooked wooden handle and a blade that can slice through anything. The blade appears to be somewhat transparent. There is a tattered and worn cloth wrapped around the crooked section where the scythe is usually held by. Summoned at will, this scythe is like an extension of her very self.
Other weapons likely include a semi-automatic pistol, daggers, and machettes.
Other Items : Around Oniís wrist area is a pocket dimension where she keeps an assortment of items including weaponry. She prefers to access the pocket by reaching into her sleeve so they appear to come from her sleeves rather than completely out of nowhere. However, most items kept in there aren't used in day to day life. Like the clutter up in one's attic, it's often forgotten but can interesting or helpful.
Abilities/Skills & Power Level:
Close Combat - Oni is primarily a close combat fighter, a very good one at that. She is an expert with a scythe and many pole weapons. She is also trained with a variety of bladed weapons, while she does favor a machette. Her fighting style relies on being quick, momentum and slashing an opponent rather than hitting them straight on as she is really not that strong and can't take too many hits herself.
The Dead : As a Servant of Death and powerful death mage in her own right, Oni has her hand heavily in the domain of the death.
- Raising: Under regular circumstances, Oni can raise a fair number of undead with no great effort on her part.
- Binding: Undead raised by Oni are bound to her and must obey her will unless she deems otherwise. She can also take control of other nonsentient undead provided that there are no other more powerful forces are at work.
- Interacting with Souls/Spirits: To Oni souls and spirits can be as physical and acessible as the living. She can see, hear and interact with them quite easily. But she can also ignore interaction, such that a spirit could drift through her.
That Which I Control :
- Shadow Summon: Besides death magic, Oni has an affinity for shadow magic. This generally consist of summoning and controling shadows for a variety of tasks or even attacks. These shadow creatures are regarded as elements, neither good or evil.
- Wraith Summon: A more volatile and risky skill of hers, Oni can summon and, to an extent, control wraiths. These are creatures of hate and other negative energy. Feeding upon negative energy or physical blood and flesh. They are indiscriminate on who they feed on, and this includes their summoner if he/she cannot control them. These wraiths are weak to holy and white magic. They appear to be floating, wispy rags with glowing red eyes under the hoods, like the upper torso of a person. They also have two shadowy yet bony, rotting arms trailing out from under the rags. Although this appearance is not constant.
Headless Horseman : If you somehow managed to cut off her head...that isnít going to help you much. However, in this headless state, her body will attempt to protect the head or at least keep an enemy away from it until the enemy is disposed of. This does not normally last long, but Oni can go for about 10 minutes or so from sheer will. Temporarily attaching the head back on properly allows the cut to be healed rather quickly before it is completely attached again. When applied to other limbs: when limbs are cut off, she can reattach them but securing them back in place and eventually they will heal back on and become fully functional again. However, too much damage, and she'll slip into a zombie like state where her only motivations are to feed and revenge. She will not follow any orders and will not distinguish friend from food.
Living Sight : Seeing the physical world is not the only way Oni sees things. She can shift her focus to see the life force of that around her. Thus if something has no life force, she cannot see it if fully in this "mode" of sight.
Accelerated Healing : Oni can heal much faster than the average person. What might take a day for someone, she can take 1/5-1/3 a day depending on how severe the injury is. This healing rate is varied during the healing period. What may be fatal wounds for the average person, Oni can initially heal very quickly to the point it is no longer fatal. After this, the healing rate slows down.
Not There : Oni is not actually solidly grounded in the physical world. As a result, the physical world does not always exist for her and she can pass through what ought to be solid objects, living or none. But she does prefer to stay within the physical realm, only she "slips" sometimes.
Teleportation : Oni can teleport long distances, and for even longer distances she can ride her Nightmare which can travel long distances in a very short time by bending space-time.
Supernatural Aura : Certain people more attuned to death will feel a cold and well, deathly aura about her. This also allows her to feel when someone dies in the vicinity of herself. However, too many deaths at once or close together can incapacitate her for a few minutes. The experience is much like having a very intense brain-freeze. Those not so attuned to death can still get a taste of this unnaturalness about her as her eyes seem strangely cold, dead, possibly empty.
Invisibility : Oni is linked to the Death of her homeworld, a small death herself. So she can choose not to be seen, existing more in the realm of the spirits than the physical. Anyone or machines with the ability to see into or detect that of the spirit realm can likely see her though.
Does One Exist? : Oni is odd to those that can detect life and souls. She appears to have soul but not at the same time. The same with being alive and not at the same time, while not being undead either. Much like those pictures where you either can see a vase or two faces, it depends on how you 'squint.' You might see that she is alive, but at the same time some part of your mind/eyes tell you she's not and vice versa.
Fear of Crucifixion : Oni is irrationally afraid of being crucified despite never having seen or experienced crucifixion herself. This fear is taught to all Mazoku, though the reasoning behind the fear is not.
Healing : Oni's immune system is very resistant to changes by outside elements such as disease. However she is also resistant to healing magicks and medicine. Where a healer may be able to heal a 3rd-dgree burn on an average person, the same energy on Oni may heal a 1st degree burn. For medicines and diseases, her immune system is somewhat like a dam that holds it back. But there is specific amount that will help her or allow her to only get moderately sick. Anything more and the 'dam' breaks down, leading to overdoses and being severely sick.
Feeding : While not an insatiable zombie, Oni does need to somewhat regularly feed upon souls, particularly when she has used alot of energy be this summoning undead or her body healing itself a great deal. If she cannot feed, she becomes weaker and more erratic with her vision shifting more and more towards life forces.
As You Say : As her mind is naturally included to, as well as having been trained to take orders for centuries, Oni is very susceptible to suggestion and most forms of mindcontrol. She has very little resistence to any form that is not something you have to physically give to her such as a truth serum.
Killing : Due to the nature of her skills, not being very physically strong, and also being taught to be efficient in combat Oni has a harder time not killing a person than killing them. This is very inconvinent when the victim needs to be taken alive. She is also very quick to draw a weapon, too quick in delicate moments where drawing a weapon makes things a whole lot worse.
Description of Personality:
When Oni first entered the Dream, she could be summed up in one word, "servant." Since then, she has actually loosened up, much of which is due to the influences of a certain UNP major. She is very loyal and dedicated to those that she serves, but it no longer comsumes every aspect of her life. Orders given to her are taken very seriously, but occassionally she will not follow them to the letter if another more viable solution is found. However, such deviation does not come naturally to her and she will not consider it if the exact end goal cannot be met.
The Mazoku is very quiet and very formal. But can and usually comes off as cold and close-off, possibly closeminded, to those around her due to her lack of expression and strictness in most aspects of her life. She can appear to be condescending at times, but this may be due to how rank orientated her culture is. With rank being achieved by merit and accomplishment alone. Which may not always be the case in reality.
To a select few, she's begun to open up more than anyone, including herself would suspect out of her. On rare occassion, she does smile now.
To be filled in soon
