- Ryusei is a Konatsian, a person that came from the planet Konats known for its incredible grasp of magic and technology as well as mastery of the sword. As a result, Ryusei is a magical swordsman who utilizes ki and sword skill to battle.
He has spiky green short hair, covering the utmost part of his forehead, in which his pointed ears can be seen easily. Coal black eyes also stem with his mostly childish "baby-face", having a scar on his right cheek (similar to Bardocks scar in shape, though smaller) gained from training years earlier before his current age. He also has darker skin than your average Konatsian, and is coated in a sort of brownish beige complexion.
His body type is lean, and fit, and can be considered athletic as well. Along with his body weight which is somewhere around 120 to 140 pounds or nine to ten stone in weight. He is also five foot, seven inches in height.
Usually he wears clothing like a sleeveless gi without an undershirt, with a v-shaped collar showing his lean body. He also wears a pair of baggy pants held up by a red haramaki (a special sash said to hold in organs during combat and as a "belly warmer"). He also wears sandal-like shoes with a covering over his toes to the front. He wears his sword & sheathe as a leather-like strap over his shoulder and chest used to hold it and be used for easy access.
- Ryusei is a person that has a willful and powerful spirit and great amounts of vigor and enthusiasm. He is someone happy to help you if it's for the right cause and not afraid to voice his opinions against the odds of others. He is someone that is honest but can be extremely blunt not knowing how to hold his tongue very well and voices his like or dislike of something in an instant. He is not always very serious, and is someone who likes to joke around outside of combat or serious situations, and even sometimes while within serious situations to lighten the mood.
Ryusei loves to practice his swordsmanship, and is someone who aspires to become a master swordsman and the best in the universe. This aspiration has led to him having an ironclad drive and spirit far beyond the average person. He takes great pride in his training, and never jokes when he says he wants to get stronger. He also takes combat seriously and doesn't hold back well. He also takes great care of his sword. Unlike most Konatsians trained in the ways of magic, he is not that good in it and instead focuses on excelling in his swordsmanship and ki skills.
Ryusei doesn't express his inner feelings well, and isn't someone that knows how to talk to women or loved ones with his emotions properly, preferring to let his actions show instead of his words. He also doesn't understand subtle disturbances in others emotions either making him less than proper in relationships deeper than friendship and family, like love and hate (though he can still feel them and not know why he is). This happens even if he has a deep respect towards the people he is talking to.
He isn't one to be affected by idle threats easily, and pushes the limits of what he does if he feels he needs to. He is actively competitive and won't hesitate to make up a challenge towards enemies and comrades alike.
Ryusei dislikes cold weather, preferring warm and summer weather instead. He also doesn't like extremely sour foods (like lemons) and hates nagging people. He is also an intelligent individual despite his innate rude and blunt natures, and is able to think up effective strategies and methods of battle that suit him, he also understands machinery and systems well enough that he isn't a complete idiot in their use. He also prefers using sword combat instead of hand to hand combat and isn't very good at fighting without a sword.
- Chaotic Good - The ability to not listen to others when it is something important as saving a comrades life or rushing into battle when he sees an innocent or an ally without hesitation is why Ryu is Chaotic. He follows his own path of the warrior and thus never allows himself to be swayed to save his own life if his friends are risking theirs.
Weapons and Equipment:
- Spaceship (Broken) - A spaceship bought from a nearby planet a short ways from Konats. It is Ryuusei's main transportation through the cosmo, however, was broken during his crash landing on earth. Thus, it needs to be fixed by a mechanically-inclined individual. Basic space travel and self defense weapons, but nothing complicated.
- Swordsmanship - A genius at swordsmanship, Ryuusei has been doing swordsmanship since he was a small child and thus has gained a greater than normal knack for it. Capable of using anything remotely sword-like as one of his swords, Though he is known to have no real ability in hand to hand combat and thus does not utilize it and only knows the basic maneuvers of such a style.
In combat he uses a close quarters style, and is rarely without his sword. Even without a sword, he has learned to flow ki around a blade to make it act as a sword. He has learned to infuse strikes within his sword. Due to this skill, and the use of rotating energy throughout the blade and absorbing the left-over ki, the technique takes little to no ki to use. He understands different stances to use in combat as well in order to fit different situations, capable of switching on the fly.
He has a great sense of instinct though isn't a very good teacher when it comes to swordsmanship.
Place Of Birth:
- A young lad that felt his calling of swordsmanship and battle at a young age of childhood. Ryusei was also an orphan, due to a rampage of creatures on the wild attacking his parents and murdering them while he was still very young. As an orphan Ryusei didn't have many friends and was mostly alone or by himself. He didn't have much in terms of someone to depend on or care for him and though weird, he grew up as still a good and passionate lad.
He has always been enticed with sword combat and had wanted to become a swordsman ever since he first laid eyes on the battle. However, as a young man, he wasn't very good at its use, and often made silly mistakes with his sword, was clumsy and tried to fight those who were much stronger than he was losing with effortless strikes. Ryusei was seen as a fool for trying to practice swordsmanship as a child and the swordsmen thought he should stop trying each time.
As he slowly came to grasp his own weakness he began to train his swordsmanship skills by himself. On times when he didn't practice he would do extra chores in order to gain extra physical strength and endurance. And without his keepers knowing, he would sneak out his home to do extra training lessons. During one of these training lessons, a skilled user of swordsmanship (he was often hooded and he was a master at the training hall) had happened to come by.
Seeing how hard he was training and after a few questions, he'd decided to teach Ryusei the proper stance and told him what training method would be needed in order to greatest potential from his sword. "1000 Slashes, 1000 Thrusts, using a sword made of stone." This rang throughout his mind, daily he'd train his skill with one thousand slashes and thrusts, then two thousand slashes and thrusts, then three thousand and he went on until it became 10,000 slashes and thrusts.
He tempered his body for months, his arms and body got stronger as he gained more skill with his sword. Unbeknown to him that the man would watch him and see him training. After five months of this training he would once again go and challenge the soldiers once more. Deciding to prove his worth and his honor as a swordsman. Confronting the school, he would go against all three of the swordsmen that beat him before. Taking them on without fear.
The battle had been a fierce one. Ryusei with his new found skill and power had gained substantial strength and speed. His body was even lighter to him as well, reacting to the swordsmanship of the three without missing a beat and even dodging their attacks with ease. He beat them all, with a few movements of his weapon, disarming them with his own skill. There pride would be broken, due to this, and instead of a spar, they'd want to all come at him and fight to the death. This was stopped by the same man who had been training him before (unbeknown to him once again, as he never allowed himself to be known in the first place) and prompted to fight against Ryusei himself.
Ryusei would agree with this and decided to fight him. The combat was fierce, with Ryusei showing surprising skill and the full extent of his training, making the man curious at his combative talent, but the man was more experienced and gifted with his sword. Ryusei had lost the duel but gained the man's respect due to the "fire" in his eyes. Due to this, the man had decided to take him within the swordsmanship school. He had also enrolled him in real school, so he would become mentally strong as much as physically.
Just because he was enrolled as an apprentice of the sword it didn't mean his extra training was over. Not only did he train hard during the actual classes in learning strikes and stances he trained outside of the classroom still practicing his ten thousand strikes. So much so that he would often fall asleep in class much to the dismay of his teachers and master. His master would need him to study hard as well, for it he did not he would not be a swordsman, thus he had to train as hard as he could in his regular training as he did in outside training as well as hit he books at night. It was a hard change, but he was able to do so.
As he grew older, he became stronger and as his master saw his growth he would promote him as a swordsman at the age of fifteen due to his hard work and effort. He would also be one of the youngest in the class. Thanks to this he would now have the ability to learn magic and create his own sword. He had no aptitude for magic, but due to his exceptional swordsmanship he was granted a pardon from learning it. He did however, create his own sword and sheathe with guidance from his master. "This sword is your soul, manipulate it as you see fit." He listened to this, the sword taking three entire sleepless days to create. On the final day, Ryusei made his sword and fell unconscious after it was done.
He was finally a full fledged Swordsman, who could now decide his own path. He now had the ability to pursue tasks and create a name for himself as long as he was an honorable user of his blade. He also got it enchanted and would name the blade, Excel due to him wanting to surpass his own limits and become the universes greatest swordsman. Within his gaiden days, he went through many tasks that were used for testing his meddle as a combatant.
Going on assignments like protecting a village (real combat being different from his practice came to teach him a lesson). He had gained a lot of knowledge including learning how to use ki, and refining it for his own needs. He took up the mantle as a defender of justice and had to combat many obstacles within his year of being considered a swordsman from fierce battles, from protecting the weak and innocent, he had matured from being self-reliant to wanting to protect others.
As a result, he became a better swordsman, but was far from being a master. He took notice of this and kept up his training.
After hearing of the problems happening around the universe through way of travelers, Ryuusei decided to set a course towards Earth after finding out that a certain "event" was on the rise. He would in turn begin a two month long journey in a space ship headed for earth. In order to go on his first interstellar adventure.
- Ki Manipulation - The Ability to form ki/chi/chakra into energy blasts or beams. Depending on the user, these can also come from the eyes and mouth.
Flight - Using your energy to lift and propel yourself through the air.
Environmental Adaptation - The ability to survive in any environment, even if it lacks the necessary resources to sustain life, like the vacuum of space.
Sense Ki - Detecting the natural energy of a person in order to determine their relative level of power. Certain users can even sense the intent of people, determining whether they're good or evil just by how their aura feels.
Hide Ki - Disguising your natural energy to make others with the Sense Ki ability to think you're as strong as the average person to appear as a non-threat.
Magical Sword [Excel] - Konatsians can enchant their own custom sword, making it strong and protected against ki and virtually unbreakable. They can also infuse their own ki into their sword and utilize it for techniques. The nature of these swords are for the warrior class of swordsmen, and are given to those that become exceptional warriors for their ages and have proven their worth and loyalty towards their master and community.
The sword is enchanted with a high level magic from another source as Ryuusei cannot utilize magic as the energy that it is made from is not "ki". This means if the sword is somehow broken, that he must return to his home-world or find someone that also understands high level magics to fix and infuse its energies once more. The sword itself is only as sharp and powerful as the wielder is, and thus grows with the wielder in strength and overall ability. this also means anyone else that tries to use the sword cannot cut with it. Ryuusei calls his particular sword "Excel". The sword also has the ability to "slay" evil and can effectively cut entities made of malevolent energies.
Blade Wave - A ki sword projectile attack that generates a powerful destructive energy that can damage anything hit by its force. Due to this the power of the wave can be increased by giving more ki into the output of the blade strike. The attacks can be sharp or explosive. The sharp attacks are just that, sharp waves of energy that release from the blade with thin layers of ki that have the ability to cut through a variety of things due to their size. Explosive attacks are basically Ryuusei's answer to chakra blasts and are made to burn the opponent with powerful blasts of ki, they are shot with a wider length and arc.
Flash Blade - An iaijutsu skill (really a skill that Ryuusei just made up). Ryuusei launches at the opponent at such speeds that he seemingly disappears cutting them while they are in his path and re-sheathes the blade. Depending on how durable the opponent is they can be cut completely in half or take the blow with no scratches upon their body. Since Ryuusei doesn't kill people, the attack is made to incapacitate opponents.
The attack is linear and thus easy to dodge because Ryuusei usually focuses by placing his hand on the sword while it's sheathed and then lunges forward. The technique doesn't have to use ki, but it can do so in order to empower the attack. It also can't cut through sturdy ki defenses or dense materials that have a harder than normal (for a DB fighter anyway) defense.
Sword Guardian [Not Yet Achieved] - This power up is when the Konatsian has become a warrior of their race and has learned the ways of swordsmanship and mastered them. At this stage they unleash the power hidden from within. This usually causes their muscles to bulge just slightly as they pop some veins as well and their aura extends around their swords.
This technique is usually unlocked only when a Konatsian has been pushed to their absolute limits as a combatant and have gained a considerable understanding of combat. This skills power is equivalent to twenty times kaioken. When done it gives a permanent boost to his natural abilities.
- "This sword of mine is blazing blue, it's cutting edge tells me to carve my own path! Now take this, my sword, my strength and all my vigor! Awaken! EXCELLION BLADE!"
Excellion Blade [Not Yet Achieved] - An attack that Ryusei uses, the places a vast amount of ki throughout his blade as a medium for his abilities. The aura and power of this technique is great and stretches with the release of more ki throughout the blade. The blade is the same color as Ryuusei's aura and is extremely powerful capable of causing mass destruction to whatever it hits by way of a mean cutting force.
Focused use makes the blade incredibly sharp and capable of cutting through many things with little to no resistance due to its focus. Of course, against much stronger opponents, the attack can be blocked though with grievous effects if the user is powerful enough. The extension of the blade is extremely fast and can be extended to pierce through opponents as well.
The weaknesses of the technique is after using it for a decent period of time the user gets winded due to the massive amount of ki releasing throughout the blade. The technique cannot be done without a medium and also without a sword that is Excel or has similar properties to Excel due to its magical properties as a normal weapon would not be able to focus the energy of the weapon. One last weakness of the technique is that it is rarely used due to Ryuusei so highly keeping himself from killing his opposition thus he won;t use it unless it is an absolute necessity.
