original dark fantasy
Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

weapons
As a Part-Time hero, he can normally be seen carrying heroic weapons. He has a few sets of clacker balls, a metal baseball bat, ropes, and a pocket knife. All of these come in handy when catching evil-doers.

As a Part-Time Collector, he may have a few books, or maybe a net with him. If he is flustered it is pretty likely he will hit someone with these things.

His Full-Time alcoholic status means he is carrying a bottle of liquor with him at all times, so he may break the bottle and use it as a weapon if he really needs to.
abilities
Demon

His nature as a partial demon granted him a few passive abilities that most demons typically have. All these abilities are within the physical nature. He is able to run significantly faster than most humans, he is a great deal stronger than them, is more durable, and can jump up to a story high. Another passive ability he has is his slowed aging process.

Phoenix Rebirth

He inherited the ability to be reborn from his father's phoenix demon side. Upon death, his body will erupt into a flame and scorch him until he is nothing but ash. A woundless body emerges from the ashes and he is able to continue as if he was never hurt at all. He is unable to be reborn if his head is cut off.

Manipulation of physics

The mixture of his mother's Sillage along with his father's demonic abilities granted him the amplified and inherited powers of his mother, but instead of them being Sillage, they have manifested as demonic abilities. These demonic powers grant him the ability to alter a few specific physics based powers. He has the ability to control the velocity and alter the friction of objects.

Velocity: With this, he is able to change the velocity of any moving object. He is able to speed up a moving object, living or not, up to 1/1000th of the speed of light simply by touching it while it is in motion. He can also change the direction of any object by touching it. An example of this would be a baseball launched at his face would have the direction altered the second any particle makes contact with his face, launching it in a different direction entirely. He would obtain a minimal amount of damage from this, but has to be focused on the object in order to change the direction of it. If something catches him off guard then he is screwed.

For a brief second, Reinier would be able to make sure his entire body would be able to launch anything off of it in the opposite direction it was travelling.

He is unable to change the velocity of attacks made with holy weapons.

Friction: He is able to remove the friction from any surface up to 1 mile from himself in all directions. The amount of time this stays active shortens when the distance gets longer. The full mile would make the friction removed for five seconds at most.

Contract

Reinier formed a pact with the demonic, skeletal remains of a blood dragon in hopes of gaining it's size. He gained the strength and flight of the dragon, but must activate his blood dragon abilities in order to do so. In order to activate the abilities, he must cut a pentagram into his skin. The pentagram will start to glow a darkened red then heal. After the glowing stops then the top of a dragon-like skull will appear over his head that is connected down his spine to a bone tail. His arms are not connected to the spine, but do gain dragon-like bones running down them from his shoulder to his hands, with his hands now receiving claws.

The dragon-like form gives him the same type of strength he'd have if he were the size of the original dragon, allowing him to carry up to 7 tons.

Any wound he obtains in this form has the ability to draw out his own blood and force it to multiply and crystallize in order to form weapons.

He can only stay in this form for 5 minutes and will suffer extreme exhaustion after using it.
personality/fun facts
- Insecure
- Obsessive
- Compulsive
- Unintelligent
- Childish

Renier chooses to ignore his demon side, even going as far as claiming he has mastered Sillage instead of admitting he is half demon. He isn't ashamed, but feels he doesn't know enough about demonic entities to classify himself as any part of one. He sides with humanity, and refuses to ignore his human side.

It is sometimes seen that he can be obsessive over trivial things. Ideas, items, people, and anything he can get his hands on will constantly hold a special place in his heart. It's pretty easy for him to get on the good sides of others with how social he is, and he tends to keep his obsessions quiet until they are brought up in general. He gets attached to anything and everything. Sadly, being attached to everything comes with a downside. He can't have everything. In order to cope with not being able to have it all he aggressively writes about it in his diary, that he absolutely has to keep with him at all times. His writings can be anywhere from aggressive to pornographic to straight up psychotic. He feels it is a healthy way to express himself.

Reinier will stop at nothing to be the good guy, but isn't anywhere smart enough to come up with plans to show it. He will often get confused over his own plans and will result to punching his way out of trouble. His inability to properly function doesn't make him any less of a person, though. He completely hates being looked down on.

The main thing he is insecure about would be his appearance. He knows he looks young. He knows he's small. He knows. Reinier initially began drinking and smoking to prove how much of an adult he was, but those two habits both delved deep into addiction territories.

He would love to find the perfect side-kick and tries to recruit almost everyone he speaks to. He won't push if the person really doesn't want to join, but he insists they do.
backstory
Reinier was exceptionally good at getting attached to material things. He collected rock, stamps, empty pens, and anything else he could get multiples of while he grew up. At one point in time he even had a collection of the various leaves he found while walking around. He was just way too attached to everything.

His collections made him feel special when nothing else would, and eventually they grew to affections towards various things. He began getting attached to the people he spoke to daily and vowed to protect them with all of his heart. Soon, the people he grew fond of grew into the town he was in, naming himself the town's protector. He was the hero the town deserved and needed, and his powers were going to help him save the day.

After a few months his attachment to the things around him expanded far greater than his town, it was his region. Within weeks of that, he felt as if he were the hero of the world. Reinier kept a hero diary for all his successful conquests, and even made sure to put a positive spin on his not so successful ones in order to make them seem like a success. Being hero of the world was a tough job, but he was interested in doing it most of the time. There were some days where he just couldn't be a hero, and those were the days where he had to collect. He was a man of great hobbies, and he didn't want his part time hero gig to get rid of them. It was messed up, but he had enough emotional unavailability to skip out on saving people in danger if he felt the need to catch butterflies or collect rare stamps.

On one of Reinier's heroic adventures he had met with and teamed up with a person from a group with similar interests as him. He promptly joined them, but found his own powers weren't working out for him at that point. He needed more, so he made a contract with a demon. It was pretty odd, considering he was half demon already, but he wanted to do more. Plus, the demon he was in contract was a dragon. He had high hopes that the dragon demon contract would make him get taller.

It did not.

But, he still was able to safely form a contract with the demon. His only consequence was that he had to agree to become the demon's slave once he died. That was a price Reinier was willing to pay in order to keep the world safe.
