original dark fantasy
Practice of SeditionIn 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 yet another war lurks on the horizon.

Ophiuchus, Cursed Infinite Chains - Infinitely long chains that only Blake can summon from an otherworldly gate. Using his own sillage, he can command the chains to pierce/stab an opponent or coil around them. By doing so, provided they don't have a method of stopping the poison from the point of the chain, nor are strong enough to break free from the chains' grasp, they are unable to move. Ophiuchus can also form a tight ball-like shield stopping any incoming attack directed at him. The chains can only fully stop one opponent at a time, and if multiple opponents are caught by the chains, it's easier to break out of than a single opponent caught by the chains. In addition, if opponents are bound by the chains, Blake cannot use the chains to form a shield around himself. Instead, the chains must first unbind the opponent and then form a shield.
Pocket Knife - A small knife Blake uses to assassinate prey caught in his chains.
Eternal Arms Mastery - Blake is able to master a weapon perfectly as soon as he touches it. Even if he's never held a dagger in his life, he'd be able to understand several complicated tricks to the weapon that took even the brightest student several years to perfect. However, once his hands leave the weapon, he loses all previously associated knowledge to the weapon until he regains a grasp of it. He cannot use this ability on Bellicosa or enchanted weapons designated for a certain character's use.
Demonic Enhancement - Heightened strength and heightened speed. Due to his curse, however, the enhancement is straining to his child body. Only when his limiter is removed and he temporarily reverts back to his adult self does the enhancement come into full effect. His wounds heal quickly though, which is a huge plus.
Limiter Zero - Blake takes in a large amount of surrounding sillage to temporarily break free from his curse. This is what allows him to regain his adult form depending on the amount and type of sillage absorbed. If the sillage comes from another demon or half demon, or even from an area radiating demonic energy, he is able to keep his adult form longer. As an adult, his physical strength increases greatly in exchange for losing any memory associated with him in his child form up until before the curse was placed upon him. Once Limiter Zero wears off, he loses any memory of any event that occurred in his adult state.
Dance of the Quetzal - Since Blake is a Quetzal demon, he can also sprout a pair of wings for a short period of time to fly. The time he can remain in air is shortened in his child form due to body limitations, but he can kind of just float there. It's pretty good for getting a kick out of people, more or less. If Blake chooses to do so, he can also show his long, bright green tail feathers that are really only ever used for sweeping people off their feet. He can't really control it well in his child form though so he just ends up looking like a fool. Beside that, he can also change into a quetzal bird.
>People who boast their confidence (wow what a hypocrite)
One word, confidence. Overflowing confidence. Enough confidence in himself that if someone tells him "i love you" he'd go "yeah i love myself too." He's generally a pretty friendly guy despite that, but at the same time is pretty blunt and likes to point out faults in other people. He thinks it's a way for people to improve. People probably hate when he does that. He's also a huge womanizer, but most of his womanizing is lost because of his curse.
There was once a woman named Seneca. Seneca loved beautiful things. It didn't come as a surprise, therefore, that she had a one-night stand with one of the most beautiful men in Sium. When the man had left Seneca, she fell into utter despair, knowing she lost the greatest treasure she ever set her eyes on. In her despair, she attempted to drown both herself and her unborn child. Yet each time she tried, she couldn't bring herself to do it.
Such was the story Seneca recounted each year to her grandchild, Blake. Her daughter never being around to take care of the young quetzal demon, often invited her mother over who would take care of the young Blake in her stead. What blissful memories of a time when things weren't so complicated.
Word of a great sacred treasure reached the ears of an adult Blake, his curiosity peaking at the word "treasure". He set out to find it, wanting to make sure that he'd be the one to obtain the sacred relic. As he made his way through the Pluviall rainforests, he became increasingly worried about the validity of the claim. He journeyed for many days with his best friend, Marcus, until they reached a cavern with various gems and gold. But that wasn't what Blake set his eyes on the most. His gaze was focused on the long, wound up chains sitting on a pedestal. The chains seemed to whisper to him, beckoning him closer. Marcus noticed Blake in a trance, and in shock and horror, realized what those chains were. As Blake looked upon the chains, he reached out to grab it, the warning from his closest friend come too late.
For as soon as Blake touched the chains, a searing pain took a hold of his body. The chains enveloped him as he struggled to fight the immense pain and burn from the chains themselves. It was like a snake, eagerly wolfing down its prey, and when the pain finally subsided, Blake looked around the cavern, finding out for the first time that he was truly alone. There seemed to be nothing left of Marcus, the gems, or the gold in the cavern. The only thing that seemed to exist was Blake himself, and the chains, now seemingly following his every command. But at the price of controlling such a fluid regalia, he had lost his age. No sooner did he take a singular step did he trip over his now oversized clothes. Blake stared in horror, first at his clothes, and then at his smaller, child-sized hands. A soft voice resounded in his head,
Rejoice, demon, for your wish has been granted.
Wish? He didn't wish to be young. Or was it so twisted, that when he wanted to things to return to a time when they were less complicated that he'd been changed into a young boy again instead? He scowled at his luck. No, it wasn't even luck. As he wandered through Sium, lost and confused, he continued to consider his predicament a curse. No one, he thought, would believe his story if he told them. After all, how common was it for a man to revert to a child? Pretty hecking rare if I do say so myself. Despite this setback, Blake found a natural skill for both dancing and biking. As of now, it's a mystery where Blake will set foot next, but his charming dances have found ways into people's hearts. Literally and figuratively.
