Riela Marcellis (Valkyria Chronicles)
- Her full name is Zena Astraea Delilah Sistina Anri Dianes Zelphios. What, think that's long? Go talk to Jageroux about long ass names.
Oh, she's got wings as a valkyrie. They're like... feathery and faded blue?
[Masamunera] - Zena's trusty Katana she received as a gift. Made from durable metal, this ordinary saber is further enhanced by Zena's ability to enchant objects. This in turn allows the blade to face off against sillage-based weaponry without a problem.She liked to keep it sheathed at her right hip.
[Good ol' Shitbag] - Zena's first handgun. As usual, it's ordinary. She just enchants the gun or the bullets to create better fuckery. Holstered on her left hip.
[Gojira] - She originally called it The Big Bitch, but she changed her mind. Hell, it might have an actual name, but Zena didn't bother to find out. A large and ancient sword protected by runes. She doesn't really know what it does, but it looks cool. Kept inside [Arsenal].
[Bolverk] - A rifle heavily altered with sillage. Strong piercing power, and especially lethal to sillage users. She stole this from somewhere, but she honestly doesn't remember. Keeps it in [Arsenal].
She's also got a whole bunch of other guns in [Arsenal] she keeps for the shits and giggles.
[Arsenal] - Grants Zena the ability to store weapons, armor, and equipment into a separate dimension. She's able to quickly recall the item(s) she needs back on her person and store away just as fast.
[Warp Flux] - Allows the user to 'shift' their position in space. Zena can warp around the immediate area, and can leave an 'afterimage' of herself for diversions.
[Greater Authority] - A type of enchantment magic. Through vocal command, Zena can "order" things such as objects around. If she were to tell a sword she's holding to slice harder, then it'll sharpen and vibrate. If she tells a bullet to "blow that shit up" then it becomes an explosive round upon contact. She is limited in commands. She can't tell an inanimate object to come to life. And sillage-enhanced weaponry are resistant to her commands. Living creatures cannot be commanded, nor living weapons.
Expert Swordsmanship Specialist - Trained by her father, a master swordsman, Zena's combat ability is not to be underestimated. Preferring the Aiado sword style, Zena can respond to sudden attacks with swiftness and precision accuracy.
Expert Marksman/Gunner/Sharpshooter/ Whatever the fuck - During the beginnings of her adventuring, Zena quickly grew an interest in gunslinging, much to her father's chagrin, and began learning how to shoot on the go. She found learning how was a lot harder for her than using a sword, so she had sought help whenever she could. While her skills in shooting is still not as good as her swordsmanship, she's improved greatly and enough to incorporate it into her fighting style.
Valkyrie Physiology - Even as a half-valkyrie, Zena still gets the benefits the race brings such as enhance durability, strength, and senses.
Listen here and listen good! We're gonna be the very best like no one ever was, and if you disagree then I'm shoving my gun up where the sun don't shine! What?! YES, I MEAN YOUR ANUS!
Right off the bat, the most noticeable thing about Zena is that she is a tsundere. Yesiree, you heard right. She's a nice girl at heart, but can come off as rude, snarky, or disrespectful. Sure, those are also true about her, but truly, you would be able to tell if she was being genuinely mean or just being tsun.
She loves her family and friends. She'd protect them with her life because she feels like she owes them so much. She won't say that out loud though. For obvious reasons. And for the life of her, she can't help but be a "daddy's girl." It's not her fault, of course. He pretty much spoiled her.
She enjoys the thrill of an adventure. She does not like to sit still for very long, preferring to move about seeking mischief. Because of this she can be quite the troublemaker.
Nowadays, she's still pretty much herself, though she's begun to guard herself, to keep her from getting too close. She's dealing with a bad breakup, and while it has been some time since that day, Zena still finds herself hurt from it. At times, she appears to be lost, or looks like she'll break down at some point. She keeps it in, but for how long she can do so is a mystery even to her.
We're basically here to fuck shit up.
One day, two tsunderes met under a cherry blossom. They hated each other, but secretly loved each other. But then they also hates each other... But they banged, because in the end, the belligerent sexual tension was too much.
Which was how their first child was born! A son!
But wait, there's more!
At some point they banged a second time!
And that was how Zena was brought into the world.
Zena grew up spoiled. She got most things she wanted as a child with little to no effort. It was a gift to have such an adorable face... and a very weak-willed father when it came to his daughter. Then one day, observing her father as he practiced his swordsmanship, Zena came to a conclusion...
"DADDY DADDY DADDY! TEACH ME NOW TO SWING A SWORD AROUND LIKE YOU! RIGHT NOW!"
And so, for the first time ever, her father had said "no" to her.
And then she begged. And he said no. And she still begged. He still said no. There was more begging and there was even more refusing. So much begging. So much refusing. Wow.
Inevitably, her father finally conceded. Mind you, this was all in the span of two hours.
She picked up the way of the sword very quickly. And with this revelation, her father had taken to training her more seriously. Because she was skilled. Not because the first time, his son chose to be a practitioner of the lance liker his mother.
He certainly wasn't salty. Absurd.
Learning how to wield a blade did good for Zena's character. It allowed her to become more outgoing and even more independent. She relied less on her family, and gained humility she sorely lacked. This was she was able to make more friends. And that was truly a godsend when she only had one.
Did her brother even count?
With independence came her more curious and adventurous side. And with the influence of her newest companion, Quinn, Zena threw herself in whatever excited her. From exploring the beautiful landscapes from her parents' stories to commandeering a pirate ship (seriously, they did that) to becoming vigilantes for fun, Zena was making a name for herself.
And then she fell for Quinn. She didn't exactly know how or when it happened, but before she knew it they were in each other's arms, staring lovingly into each other's eyes. The two of them against the world, and Zena couldn't be happier. The days she spent with her lover were the times where she found herself embracing the world. In these days, Zena found herself maturing as a person. She didn't mind. She had someone to see through with this slow change. She was fine... right?
One day Zena awoke only to see that she was alone in their room with all of Quinn's belongings gone. She fell to her knees and cried silent tears. Not even a whimper escaped her lips. Quinn had gone, taking all that she owned. Including a part of the valkyrie's heart.
So heartbroken she was that it vastly interfered with her work. Thanks to the efforts of her loved ones, Zena was able to cut ties with her former superior after they had plotted to use her for more unsavory means. While those close to her had also provided her with new opportunities, Zena stubbornly chose to search for new work elsewhere.
Finding herself in Ravanar, she went off only to search for trouble rather than a job. For a time she was fed up with everything, and needing to cool off, she initiated confrontation with anyone she saw. In her little warpath, she met Ikarus Norwyn, the captain of the Sky Pirates. And while there was tension at first... well... things worked out rather simply.
"Uuuhhh... Ya hiring?"
And so a new chapter to her story had begun.
