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.

Weltschmerz, Enforcer - Riparias
2B from NieR: Automata
March of the Swallow - A long white katana that can cut through most objects. The only thing it can't cut is a Bellicosa.
Enforcer Physiology - Ereshkigal is physically stronger and faster than the average human and houses a skill particular to herself. Advanced regeneration allows her to heal from wounds quickly.
Ereshkigal's ability involves the use of accelerating and slowing the time on herself or an object or attack immediately near her. Ereshkigal cannot travel to the future or the past, nor can she view events of the past. Her ability simply boils down to a fast forward and slow down button on an object within her reach.
Accel: Ereshkigal can fast forward her own time to increase her speed dramatically . By doing this, she is able to dodge incoming attacks that she normally would have been hit by or close gaps to reach her opponent easily. While time-sped up, she's only a little slower than Ishtar, moving at a max of high hypersonic plus speed.
Stall: Ereshkigal can slow herself or her surroundings. When she slows herself, her movements reach a near standstill, helping in playing possum or the such. Ereshkigal's slow radius reaches about 10 feet in front of her, slowing objects within that range around her so that she may move around it. It only works on objects and attacks aimed at her and not on other people.
Anti-Sillage: As with the rest of the Enforcers, Ereshkigal has anti-sillage capabilities in her time manipulation kit. Any sillage based attack directed at her is stopped and frozen in place before rewinding towards the caster and made such that it "totally didn't happen"
Precognition: Ereshkigal can predict attacks one time per battle. Any more and she risks destroying her core and the rest of her body. She cannot precog distant attacks aimed at her, as she must be consciously aware of the decisions in the attacks first.
Pseudo-sister to Ishtar and opens up to only her. Quiet, cold, studious, and modest. Plans three extra steps in advance. Wears a blindfold most of the time to supposedly give the opponent a handicap in fighting her. Ishtar picked her clothes. Naturally.
In 1035, life was created, and Ereshkigal descended upon the Weltshmerz labs. And yet, when she breathed life, she found the events surrounding her all the more strange. Who am I? What am I doing here? These were the only questions she could answer. As she woke, her first words uttered were "My name is Ereshkigal. You have named me, and thus I serve you." Such strangeness existed in the world, and from the start, Ereshkigal realized the heavy burden she would have to bear.
Her abilities weren't too visible at first. In fact, no one was certain what her ability was. She didn't seem to accel in manipulating gravities or found any remnant of powers within her. However, when she was placed in practical training, they found that Ereshkigal could dodge even bullets. They were still unsure of how, so they continued to test the young creation until they determined that she could manipulate the time around her to her liking. With that knowledge in mind, they began specialized training for Ereshkigal when she reached the age of 5.
During her training, she met Ishtar, a fellow enforcer who seemed to be doing jobs here and there and, like Ereshkigal, tried to keep her identity a secret. Ereshkigal took Ishtar seriously when she told her to call Ishtar a "big sister" and really only ever seemed to open up to her. After all, she was the first enforcer that approached Ereshkigal. And she certainly wouldn't be the last.
And soon, Aligheri came. And once it did, Ereshkigal found herself separated from Ishtar. Disappointed, but not surprised, she continued her work in the watery town of Riparias, where she would dutifully do her job. And perhaps try to find a way to meet Ishtar from time to time. Mostly for what Ereshkigal describes as "damage control"
