Name: Kirai Tenma
Other Aliases: "Demon of God"
Age: Appears no older than 25, though in lifetime he's well over a thousand years old.
Species: Human appearance, though by all technicalities he is demon.
Face Claim: Shiki Senri, Vampire Knight
Weight: 174 lbs.
Aura Color: Dark crimson, almost black
Description: Though his age would say otherwise, his appearance is young, with smooth skin and a handsome face that closely resembles that of a young adult. His build is lean and muscular, with no visible form of scarring. Short, black hair lays in odd angles down from the top of his head to his shoulder, with only a few long strands of hair in front of his face. Sharp nose and thin lips round out an otherwise edged face.
His clothing is dark, and oddly mysterious. A black full-length coat with sleeves cut at the shoulder, with matching pants - both made out of a material that shines like leather, feels like cloth, but is as strong as the toughest steel - are laid over his form as if they were tailor-made. Underneath his jacket is a sleeveless white undershirt. A silver cross hangs around his neck. Black leather belts and silver buckles adorn the majority of his clothing, giving it an almost intimidating feel, which is a stark contrast to the various designs that coat the outside of his clothing. Black gloves of matching material to his clothes complete the outfit, along with matching boots that look brand new despite the amount of use they've been under.
In keeping with the theme of black, he carries a lone blade at his hip. Sitting at just under 40'' in length, its grip and sheath are as black as midnight, with silver trim to match the rest of the designs on his outfit. On the grip of the weapon, a silver cross is imprinted inside the black.
Personality: Calm and complacent on the outside, Kirai is prone to few outbursts. Underneath, however, he harbors a dark hatred for most living beings, detesting their existence. Quick-witted and a sharp observer, he doesn't tend to miss much, having the wisdom of a thousand years of existence over almost anything else around him, and as such nurtures an air of superiority. Ice-cold, he offers no sense of pity or remorse to his victims, and will let nothing get between him and what he wants. In his entire existence as a demon, he has never smiled.
Moral Alignment: Evil
Weapons and Equipment: Ancient katana blade, described earlier, aptly named "Mourning" for its role in claiming the lives and souls of over ten thousand people. Its abilities are described in the Abilities section below.
Special Skills: Possessing over a thousand years of knowledge, Kirai is versed in over two dozen forms of martial arts. His mind is exceptionally sharp, to the point where it is rumored to have the ability to predict the movements of others before they even make them. This is not proven, however.
Relationship Status: Single
Place Of Birth: Originally from native Juin while in life, he now hails from the Otherworld itself in death.
History: While alive, Kirai was conditioned in the art of war by the families of his tribe, who lived on the outskirts of Juin cities and therefore relied on their ability to hunt and fight to survive. When his home was invaded by a rival tribe, much of his culture was displaced into the surrounding lands or assimilated into the new tribe, while he himself fled to a native Juin city. There, he enlisted in the service of war by becoming a soldier. In several years, his talent for killing had proven to be remarkable, and his ruthlessness at eliminating threats was without equal. He earned his nickname, "Demon of God", during this time, when the military frequently asked him to purge religious tribes on the outskirts of various cities. These actions quickly earned him ranks and promotions within the military, but his life was quickly cut short several years into service due to an assassination by his envious peers.
Angered, he sold his soul to the Otherworld to exact revenge on those that killed him, and was granted the ability to briefly return to the living to wipe them from the planet. It was soon found out that even in death, he quickly climbed ranks, ousting demons and beasts from their positions in the demon worlds until ascending to a position that closely rivaled immortality. However, trapped in the Otherworld as he was, he had no way of getting back to the living realm, and therefore was a victim of his own cruelty, imprisoned with the demons that he viciously slaughtered. Years of having to fight to retain his position as a higher demon have honed his skills to points almost incomprehensible in many of the Otherworld realms, though he never desired to expand, instead focusing his efforts on trying to release himself from his deathly prison.
Shadowstep (short-range Teleport)
Astral Projection (the ability to create minor illusions at will)
Energy Manipulation (ability to manipulate basic energy forms)
"Mourning": Kirai's weapon, "Mourning", has a range of abilities and properties that make it far and above the average weapon. Forged from metal from the otherworld planes, it's resistant to damage while at the same time forever keeping its sharpness. In addition to its standard uses in combat, it's also endowed with the ability to absorb various forms of energy, both natural and artificial, as well as the ability to temporarily amplify Kirai's power with that which it has absorbed.
The blade originally received its name due to the fact that after absorbing energy, it bleeds some of it out, coating the blade in what appears to be tears - hence, the "mourning" that represents the blade tearing away a loved one from the living realm. These tears enhance the blade's power with each successful coating.
Desecration: In his hatred for life, Kirai has perfected the art of ripping the life energy from all living things around him. By focusing some of his energy into the area around him, he can create a field of black corruption that drains the life energy of everything inside of it into another plane of existence in the Otherworld. Because of the nature and style in which it is used, it can only be used in proximity of himself, within a range of about ten to twenty meters away from his body.
Void Space: By concentrating energy into a specific location, Kirai can create voids of space linked to different planes of existence. These voids serve many purposes, ranging from defensive countermeasures against ranged attacks to disruption against linear-minded opponents. These voids are not lethal, but are capable of inflicting various amounts of pain, as most living bodies cannot withstand being in multiple planes of existence at once.
Judgement: By focusing energy into a specific part of his body - or even his weapon - Kirai is able to create a large surge of dense energy that from there erupts into various forms. Though relatively easy to detect, as the surge of power is rather noticeable, the sheer force emitted compensates for that fact. Due to the density of Kirai's energy when expelled in this matter, it has the potential to overpower many energies of equivalent power level, making it strong against rival energy blasts as well as those who try to use forcefields to absorb the strength of the blast.
Hell's Vengeance: Crafted and perfected after centuries in the Otherworld, Kirai can create black flames of pure energy that spread like a contagion. When coming into contact with any living target, the flames spread, consuming anything they touch. Unlike normal fire, the black flames require no oxygen; rather, fueld by energy itself, it consumes it, lingering on larger sources of energy until its source of fuel diminishes. When in contact with a living being, they will continue to burn until severed from their source of energy or until they consume the body itself.
Tortured Existence: 'Those that suffer from their own existence...have no need of it.'
Utilizing powerful mental force, and the inward thoughts of his targets, Kirai pushes onto the minds of those around him and pulls out their deepest, darkest secrets, forcing them to relive every regret, every pain, and every sorrow they've ever experienced. During this, time seems to become immaterial as those suffering relive their experiences in their own way, and in different amounts. The more painful memories and experiences the target has to relive, the longer the agony goes on, until many people are driven to the point of insanity - or even death.
Those that have more painful experiences are affected to a higher degree, and the pain is higher; those that have less, experience a lower threshold of pain and suffering.
