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.

Lux has a bellicosa, however h refuses to use the power given to him by the Cross. Because of this, it is always in the form of a small knife. He always keep it on his person despite it's useless nature. It helps to remind him of his virtues when he's lost his way.

Though it hasn't been seen in years, and will probably never be seen again, Lux's Bellicosa has a devastating ability. He can only use it once a day because of it's sheer power. This attack creates a large arc of holy power with a swipe of the blade. This arc slices everything in its path, completely nullifying any magic that is demonic or of other dark creatures, making it an assured kill for even strong opponents. The arc stretches to 500 yards wide and can travel double that length. It's dangerous for him to use if anyone else is around because of this. (note: I'm literally not gonna use this except maybe one thread based in the past)
abilities
- Platinum Manipulation - Lux has always had the power to create or manipulate platinum to his will with a variety of uses. It is harder than natural platinum due to its magical nature, and he can control its temperature, making it frozen or burning to the touch. He can glide over large sheets of frozen platinum or bake an enemy with heat. He can also make simple constructs at a normal temperate. (OOC permission for baking, though it was mostly an example)

- Dark Matter - His curse allows Lux to manipulate a black energy which he can infuse into his spells to make them stronger in a sense. He has a limited supply of this energy throughout his life, and it is the force that keeps him alive, so he tends not to use it unless he truly has to, or really wants to. This energy can slowly refill, but more often than not, this doesn't happen due to the fact that when he does use this, he uses it in massive amounts.

- Comet - The one time Lux does make common use of his dark energy is in the form of a particular spell, the only one he can use solely with dark energy. This transforms his body entirely into black matter and the energy allows him to move at nearly impossible speeds. He loses all sense of feeling when he uses this spell since his flesh, the only part of him that has any nerves left, is technically not there. He can only travel about fifty feet at a time with this.

- Dark Life- The curse placed upon him hollowed out his soul, but also his body. A cut can reveal it. Inside, Lux is completely empty. He had no blood or organs. Instead a black matter makes up his insides He can feel pain, but he won't be able to die by normal means. Even if an arm is severed, that black mass will reattach and his flesh will heal. He can't do this very quickly, so if his flesh is completely obliterated he won't be able to reform. He still feels the pain, but most injuries are not life threatening to him anymore.

- Angleic Body- Lux is made tougher than humans. He has hard skin which is hard to pierce and cut, though not impossible. Medium level attacks or enchanted weapons can usually override this. Lux's body also does not age, and he is immune to natural illness. Along with hi defensive measures, Lux's body is stronger and faster than a human's.

-Like any other angel, Lux has a pair of wings. However, they have become so tainted that he is too ashamed to show them. The once white feathers have turned grey, and his wings constantly ooze a black liquid from corruption.
personality/fun facts
Lux feels very little emotion anymore. With dark power running through him now, it eats away at his spirit, which in turn makes his mind rather weak. He can get by day to day, but every now and then he just has a shut down and doesn't really feel a need to do anything. This passes after a few days, or if for some reason he gets riled up by something around him.

He fully blames Crux Fidelis for this, despite the fact that he made his own choice to work with a demon. The organization and the ignorant people within it drove him to such lengths, after he had done so much for them for almost all of his life.

Normally, he puts almost all of his effort into keeping the darkness out of his head. However, at times he'll embrace it should he become agitated. When he does this he's like a different person entirely. He feels again, his starved emotions excited by the smallest of things. Lux forgets his virtues entirely, indulging in any sin he can, and letting them take over his mind until he can find some will power to return to himself, though that becomes more difficult each time he let's go.
backstory
Lux was born into a world where he had to watch humans suffer. And then the great Eleftherios came and bestowed amazing power upon them. Lux was young and impressionable at the time, and as a child he knew what his purpose in life was meant to be. He was meant to follow the example the wonderful God had shown him and every other living thing in Sium. With no regrets he went down to the world of humans to protect them for all of eternity.

He was one of the first members to join Crux Fidelis. He didn't have much experience, but he did have unwavering loyalty and heavenly aura about him. The humans of the Cross embraced him for the most part. a few shunned him out of fear of nonhuman "beasts". Lux wasn't harmed by this. He just took it on as a driving force to prove himself.

Over the next two hundred years he fought along side countless hallowed, watched a number of them die, witnessed a number of them rise to the glory he strove for. Great Commanders rose around him, and every time he saw a friend take on the responsibility of power he grew more and more determined.



He was finally sure that he had grown enough in strength to take a Commander spot for himself. His entire life had been given to the Cross and their beliefs. He had denied himself every vice, every pleasure they frowned upon. He trained every day. He had protected human life more times than he could count and proven his overwhelming strength. The position of Chastity had become vacant, and Lux knew it was just a matter of causal discussion to bestow the title on him.

However, a surprising turn of events led Lux to a downfall. Soren Kincaid was a dear friend of his. Soren had been taken in Crus Fidelis when he was but a child, and Lux had instantly felt some connection with him. It turned out they had very similar power, and Lux had been able to be one of the few to get along with the kid. He knew he coudl fight alongside Soren happily for the rest of the human's life. Perhaps the young man would also become a Commander one day, or even greater.

Soren Kincaid stole his dream away. The Commander position was given to Soren, who had been fully aware of everything Lux had done and wished for. He knew Lux was far stronger, cared more, knew more, had given everything for the Cross. Every member of Crux Fidelis was aware of this. And none of it had mattered. That was when it dawned on him that it would never matter. The Cross simply wanted to use him because they knew he would never defy them. They didn't have to do anything for him in return.

The disgusting part was they had been right. It had just taken Lux far too long to notice it.

Upset and crazed he went out alone, wandering into the desert. He wasn't sure if he was looking to prove himself or simply lose himself. It had been about a week when he happened upon a stranger, and alarms should have been raised. It was some woman in robes, long messy hair, and skin with no color at all. But she asked him what was wrong, and he wondered just how broken he looked. Lux ended up pouring his heart out to the woman, and she comforted him.

She decided to help him, and Lux accepted. She was so kind. No one had ever been kind to him. He was sure of that much. the woman wasn't kind either. Her help only aided in destroying him. The woman was a demon, and she cursed his holy body. She filled him with darkness, stripping away his connection to heaven. Such darkness changed him entirely. He was in agony for three days as he he turned into a fallen angel, and the depravities he had denied all of his life were overbearing. He nearly lost his mind.

What sanity remained in him was able to fight its way back to the surface. He didn't feel sadness or betrayal, He didn't feel happy to be alive. He didn't feel anything at all but a slight hope that he could overcome all of the obstacles before him.

He returned to Caersewiella, never giving any kind of report on where he had been. All Lux had said was that he needed some time to himself. He tried to convince himself he was over it. He didn't feel hatred towards anyone. He knew that wasn't true though. He was barely hanging on by a thread. He made a vow to hold out as long as he could though. He would find a way to undo his curse and find a way to make his dreams become reality.
