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 a war lurks on the horizon.

Black Sun Cabal, Servant
Ruth/Yuris - Mahou Tsukai no Yome
Haine - A jet black semi-automatic revolver that Raymond keeps on him at all times. The bullets contained in its chamber seem infinite, but it's actually limited to how much sillage he's willing to invest into it. The more sillage he pumps into the revolver, the more bullets it has.
Espoir - A solution today colors tomorrow with hope. Raymond named his blade after the promise he made with his sister on that fateful day. This curved blade is cursed such that anyone it touches will momentarily view the way they die. Usually it means being pierced by the sword itself or something else down the line. Raymond constantly sees his death by wielding the blade though, so he's fairly apathetic about the hundreds of ways he'll die. Ask him about his weirdest death and he'll probably respond with a "One time Espoir told me that I'd die by choking on an orange."
Enhanced strength, speed, regeneration - So while Raymond is the best of both worlds, the enhanced strength, speed, and regeneration doesn't stack. He's very well built though, so it'll be tough to cut deep into him.
Life Stream - As part vampire, Raymond can forcefully absorb a person's life force through contact from the head. How much energy he absorbs depends on how much he's willing to take along with how long his grip is on the other party's head. He thinks drinking blood directly is somewhat unsightly and swears to not intake blood. He won't say this to Hala's face though. Thus, he basically uses this to sustain himself.
Night Vision - What it says on the box. Since he's part vampire, his sight at night is totally enhanced.
Fragmented Remnants of the Corrupt - Due to the odd and unforeseen circumstances of his conception, Raymond can manipulate shadows to his command. He can even travel through shadows, but the further away he travels through the shadows, the more "soiled" his hands become. At a certain threshold, the cumulative amount of "soil" on his hands becomes too heavy for him to contain and the corruption will affect his mind, forcing upon him a mini Aphelion circumstance. During the period his mind is corrupt, he'll lose his reasoning, but bring something he cares about over and he'll get over it. He can, of course, wash away his "soil" through prolonged unuse of shadow travel or sharpening his feather blades.
Chimeric Physiology - Raymond can transform himself into a large, bat/raven hybrid. It's uncomfortable, so instead of transforming fully into that, he can sprout large, leathery bat wings from his back to fly, or command a large arsenal of black feathers that Raymond can make sharp via channeling sillage and/or his "soil". As part vampire, he can also tolerate sunlight to a degree. While the sun doesn't weaken Raymond too much, he does find it particularly annoying and would rather stay indoors. If he has a reason to be out though, he won't complain.
>Pretty much everything else
Raymond doesn't talk very much, and when he does, it's never anything good. He's generally a very depressing person to be around, but he'll do absolutely anything Hala says. Even if it's pretty fucking stupid. You could even tell him that what she says is stupid but he'll just shrug it off without a word.
Raymond doesn't have too far of a history. Or at least, one that he's willing to tell anyways. According to the man himself, he was kind of born from weird corrupt priest shenanigans from some weird ritual and originally found himself awoken as a demon. And then from there some shit went down, he made a name for himself, made a promise to his sister, and the joined the Black Sun Cabal to figure out why the fuck he was created. Oh and he supposes he serves Hala now, so he's some weird demon-vampire mix thing. Don't ask me how that works.
