Calista, Terra Battle
While she has successfully healed most of her more noticeable scars, Ava is nonetheless missing her right eye, and has started to use an enchanted glass eye as a substitute.
Regardless of her outfit, she is prone to carry around a large leather satchel with her wherever she goes, one of her few mementos from her time as a mortal. I mean sure having the bag monogrammed with her name might impede any stealth missions but hey, at least it’s less likely to get stolen that way.
Oculus Avaritia: Her right eye has been replaced with an artifact created to help assist in combat-related tasks. With OoC permission, upon witnessing the use of an ability, she is able to use said ability as her own. It is subject to all of its standard limitations and weaknesses, and only a single ability can be retained at a time. Any physical abilities are significantly weakened due to her lack of strength. Innate, passive traits such as immortality or increased durability cannot be copied.
Unnatural Prodigy: Having extraordinary abilities as a mage even while mortal, her abilities with Sillage have grown exponentially upon her rebirth as a Deadly Sin. She is generally capable of most standard usages of magic, such as conjuring flame or manipulating objects around her. She particularly excels in matters of spells relating to the human form, particularly excelling in areas such as changing the form of herself and others, as well as acts of healing.
That Form which I Covet: Having dedicated the majority of her youth trying to change her form, Ava has become a master of transformation. No matter how grotesque or seemingly unsustainable, she is able to twist her body into a variety of shapes and forms. Nonetheless, her transformations are simply transformations, and she is unable to change a body to another material, limited to working with hair, flesh, and bone.
Into the Vault: The embodiment of Greed, a large part of Ava’s time is spent hoarding texts and samples gathered from across the continent, for her personal usage. As such, she possesses the unique ability to store these items in a virtually infinite space. This space can be accessed through the opening of any room or container.
The Temptation of Mortals: Like all sins, Ava feeds off the negative sentiments and desires of mortals. She gains particular strength and nourishment from the greed of individuals, and will often foster this desire, even if it means imparting part of her precious collection to another.
Immortal Sin: Like all of the Deadly Sins, Ava can only be killed by Pride, and otherwise gets to lounge around in Alptraum for a week. While certainly capable of healing at a level beyond that of most mortals, major wounds tend to persist until extended recovery in Alptraum.
* Mildly Sadistic
* Filthy Rich
* Actually just kinda dumb. Well learned, but dumb.
Having spent most of her life neglecting all else in the pursuit of one small subsection of a small subfield of an already highly specialized research topic, upon achieving her goals, the floodgates opened. Friendship, romance, knowledge, play, fashion, family. Everything that she had neglected so long is now something she desires to hoard until it loses her interest. She’s found a particular interest in accumulating demonic contracts; even the most simple and harmless of them still represent a tangible bond that she has achieved, and given the often immaterial nature of that which she covets, such a contract is invaluable.
Lack of physical strength.
Kind of a idiot.
For most of her life, Ava Rhys lived as the eldest son of the noble Rhys family. Though her family’s power had waned following the civil war, their willingness to publicly renounce the monarchy and support Crux Fidelis in their claim to power resulted in the Rhys family retaining much of their wealth. Nonetheless, their true loyalist sentiments were hidden from all but the most trusted of servants, and their libraries were filled with books about demons, contracts, and Alptraum, subjects which fascinated Ava from a young age.
Extraordinarily gifted in matters of Silage, Ava soon found herself attending one of Ripsiarias’ top academies. There, she became obsessed with the use of Sillage to change the human form, and became almost fanatical in her pursuit of knowledge. Curses could be broken, spells could be undone, even Anathema could be removed upon death. What she sought was something truly irreversible by mortal means, that which could reshape a god’s creation. When her experiments moved from work with cadavers to live subjects, she turned to that closest at hand, burning and mangling her flesh in a variety of botched experiments.
Nonetheless, while she failed to attain her goals, her research was, in the eyes of academy and in the Cross, incredibly fruitful, and she soon secured a position as a researcher for Crux Fidelis. Granted the resources and connections she could only dream of, and combined with the wealth she had inherited from her family, the fervor with which she approached her work only doubled. And yet, the more she discovered, the more her hunger grew. Returning to her home, she began to pore over the tomes within her family library. Facing discharge or even Anathema if she was discovered, she soon began to extend her research into the realm of heresy. As her experiments continued and her health deteriorated, she was approached with an offer by the sworn enemy of all humanity. In exchange for the body she sought, she would enter into the eternal service of Pride, mightiest of the Deadly Sins. Whether a replacement for Hael or simply her vessel, Ava assumed the role of Greed.
The wish for which she had sacrified everything fulfilled, her body now permanently feminine in form in function, she began to shift her focus to the world around her. That knowledge which had escaped her until then, the hidden tomes of the Cross and Weltzmersch, and everything she had given up. Friends, lovers, these were things she sought to amass, and for what her growing fortunes failed to acquire, she was more than willing to use force.
tldr; trans heir to nobility, became obsessed with transformation magic, sold soul to pride in exchange for female body, wants to make everybody her friend
