Saul - Dark Sorceror

Post  Eddie on Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:42 pm



Name: Saul
Race: Ethereal Human
Age: 100's of years (centuries)
Age Appearance: 21
Height: 6 feet

Status: Dark Sorceror/Dark Magician
Lover: Sadira



Appearance:
Saul stands at a reasonable height of 6 feet. Despite his age he has a fairly youthful appearance, quite young in looks and physique. He has a rather slender body, not too built but not too thin. He does not boast any extreme muscle, but it is apparent that he is in good physical condition and health, so it is not certain what may lie underneath the clothing. He has a long face with a slightly pale complexion. His nose is thin and around mid length, without flaring nostrils on either side. Despite his pale complexion his lips are a subtle pink, showing that they are fair in size. His eyes themselves are blood red, unusual for most human beings, slightly lengthened in appearance with a reasonable bit of feminiscity about them, rather than masculinity. They are topped by a pair of thin, jet black eyebrows.

His hair is rather long, reaching down to just under his chest's height. It is a magnificent sight to behold, even with the slight scrappy and chopped parts to his hair. It's body is a mixture of jet black and blood red in colour, random bits of colour sprouting within the darkness in large streaks. His hair has a slightly messed up look to it.

Saul is always seen in relatively similar styled clothing. This happens to be dark red and black in colour and made of a soft cloth. This goes for his shirt and trousers, although sometimes it appears as if they were a one piece costume. On this he wears metalic armour styled plating. The plating itself has various patterns and markings on it. The right hand actually has a metalic gauntlet on it, with seperate finger covers. These finger covers are lengthened and thinned out to take on the appearance of claws. He wears a large red cloak above everything, this cloak being blood red in colour with a gold pattern trim and edging to it. The cloak itself has a hood attached that is normally seen off his head, however in some cases he leaves it covered.


Personality:
Saul is a rather more dark being. He tends to think a lot less of others, mainly because of his history. He regards others as unworthy and unneeded except for in the circumstances where they seem to be a joke to him. In his own words, the world is a large place that is full of people, people that deserve to be punished for their crimes against him. This sums up his real attitude towards others, although there is one exception to this, a woman who he considers he loves.

Sadira, the woman whom he loves seems to be the only person to have ever achieved a soft spot in his heart. He cares for her in ways that others have never seen. He is compassionate and caring towards her, even through the ruggish and rather more dominant or aggressive demeanor that he puts on. As much as he likes her however, he does not seem to show this to many others. When threatened with her harm he see's no real point in trying to stop it, and rather more tries to push the challenge on and see how far it will go.

Saul has an extreme distaste for all other magicians and sorcerors or wizards and witches. Through past events he has been able to build up a hate for them that burns within his eyes when you simply just look into them. He see's them as betrayers and 'unjustified idiots'. It is quite often that he falls into a rage when a magician is near, this often ends in lots of blood and guts.


Abilities:
Saul has practised in dark magic for many years. The form of magic he does is known as the tainted arts, known by an extreme few including himself and Sadira. The tainted arts have allowed him to perform many rituals and spells that others would consider forbidden or out of bounds to anyone with a sane mind. He has continued to push himself through these arts, no matter how much self inflicted pain it causes, in the advantage of quickly gaining power.


Heart of Darkness: Saul is able to see those people with the darker hearts. He is able to detect evil and darkness within any being that may possess it. Only the purest of good do not possess the evil or darkness that he can see. When noticing the darkness within people, he is able to take control of that person. The darker the heart, the more power and control he has over that person. Those with the darkest hearts and minds tend to bend to his will without much effort.

Ethereal Body: Saul is able to manipulate his body to become ethereal. This means that he may assume a ghost like state. The ghost like state allows him to steadily slide through solid objects as if walking through air. This is a gift that is stopped by very few curses and magical preventions. His ethereal body can also sometimes allow him to pass by others unseen and unheard.

Animal Shifting: There are a large variety of creatures within Pangea. Saul is able to take on the body and shape of those animals and creatures, although those with special powers are not so easily taken on. He's not able to recreate their powers through shifting into them. The animals that he changes into are fairly obvious in the fact that they remain jet black or blood red in colour, and sometimes a mixture of the two.

Dark Magic/Rituals: After practising with dark magic and rituals Saul has become rather adept at the use of them. His tainted arts allow him to gain complete control over darkness itself, not just shadows left by the light. This gives him the perfect ability to counter those with angelic light. His energy and magic is shown as pitch black aswell, although it does have a slight dark purple tinge to it aswell. He uses this energy to perform feats that are a little difficult with the use of normal energy, such as translocating his body using portals of darkness and such. He can even skip straight past the shadow realms and move into hell through the darkness, or just to take his place in the dark realms. His dark magic extends over a large number of uses, and gradually gets darker as he continues to use it. The rituals he performs are some rather dark and creepy rituals, nothing that the faint hearted would want to endure. Because of his vast use of energy as a mage, he is able to manipulate and control the elements aswell, sometimes even dabbling in the use of ice magery.

Necromancy: Saul's dark arts have progressed so far as to even waking the dead. He may use his powers to gain control over those that have fallen, or to control the very bones of those that have fallen, despite what race they may be. He is able to resurrect the dead, although this is often very costly and they do not always return to life as they once were. Infact, those that he resurrects often come back darker than they were, with a new evil goal.

Spirits: A sorceror is able to talk to and manipulate spirits, for that is how they gain their power. Saul demonstrates acts of evil by forcing spirits to work for him, which is something that is frowned upon by all sorcerors and mages. Spirits are their to aid you only if they wish to after they have died and it is respected that they get their peace in the afterlife. Those beings that command these spirits through use of magic are seen as some of the darkest and most evil to have lived. However, Saul see's this as an open invitation to get back at those that wronged him. He can even take control of these spirits in places such as hell.

Mind Working: Mind manipulation is a skill that all of the greatest of magicians have learnt to use. Saul does not tend to make many mind connections, except for whenever he and Sadira are seperated. This leaves him out of practise, and often tends to make it difficult for him to enter others minds and perform those simple 'circus tricks' as he calls them. However, Saul has learnt to use any mind passageways for far more darker things. He tends to avoid routes of thoughts, which most magicians have to use to get into the mind and instead ventures forwards into sensory routes. He manipulates the sense's that get sent to someones mind to produce illusions, causing them to see, smell, hear, taste and touch things that aren't true. This sometimes even expands to him manipulating sixth senses such as aura perception and truth detection to avoid any watchful eyes. His illusions may not always be obvious or too difficult, although they tend to be strong and usually require the workings of other more advanced magicians to crack them before the spell is broken. With an extreme amount of willpower he is even able to control minds of others without the use of their dark heart, however this is incredibly rare that he will do this. For even he finds it difficult to do that without the thought routes of the mind.

Extrasensory Development: Saul's senses after practising with the dark arts have reach an extremely heightened state. All of them are much clearer and far more accurate than the normal human senses, even expanding over much larger distances. However, the main sense that has improved is his hearing. His hearing is a lot better than most would imagine, and can hear even the most quiet conversations in a room that he's in, despite who's whispering and who isn't. He is also able to hear things over much larger distances and has a larger low to high frequency/pitch hearing range. Using his hearing alone he can reproduce images that he can see. This allows him to map out areas and locations and track people effectively. He can see the sound waves bouncing off people to produce the most perfect vision, even where his eyes cannot see because it is too far. However, over the much larger distances he is required to concentrate alot more, sometimes to the point of ignoring his other senses entirely.

Dark Summoning: Through rituals and other spellcastings Saul is able to summon objects, people and creatures. These creatures are normally dark and twisted, things from the deepest reaches of hell and fire that people dare not to venture towards. Other times he is able to summon those things that are bound to him, or are in his possession without the use of a spell or ritual, an example of this is his sword. The summons are often stronger with other mages around him, although they normally disagree with him and he must perform them with Sadira, the only person whom he loves and trusts.


Weapons/Tools:
Saul's only weapon that he uses is a specialised sword. The sword itself is rather thin, the blade being slightly wider than the hilt of the sword. The hilt is dark red at the pommel before slowly fading upwards to become black. The black of the hilt moves slowly down to the sharpened, backwards pointing guard. The guard itself acts as a second blade, protecting his hand and cutting things that touch it at the same time. As you move up from the hilt towards the tip of the blade the black slowly fades into red, which fades into white and slowly into a steely blue. The very tip of the blade seems to remain constantly red hot, as if the metal is placed within hell for an eterny and never allowed to cool. On the blade is the picture of a chinese dragon, other markings seem to surround the hilt and guard.
The sword is capable of setting alight by itself and taking on an energy based form. The energy itself just seems to coat the blade in this state and often combusts to an extremely high heat, causing a lot more devastating and aggravating damage. This state allows him to cut through things easier, even other people's weapons. The sword is something that he keeps locked away, and replies only to his summons. He may summon it from any point, and translocate it to him.

Saul and Sadira, using their dark arts were once able to create a set of tools. They named these tools the Harvesters Utensils. They named them so because of the special properties that they had possessed. The tools themselves are able to harvest powers from people, either completely ridding the person of it, or just taking a sample and copying it so that the effects may be reproduced. They are also able to harvest energy from the being or object they are used upon. The use of them is based upon what the user of the utensils thinks about at the time. The tools are also able to bestow the powers and energy upon other beings. One power may be harvested at a time. These tools were created via the tainted arts and so were frowned upon severely by other magicians whom destroyed all except one set of them, the only set they could not find.
The tools themselves take on various shapes and sizes. The tools themselves came in varying shapes and sizes, and took on all manners of different forms. They are all made out of silver for the main body. The tools themselves have all sorts of markings on them of which are made of amethyst stone. This black stone makes up all the patterns and details on them, and is on both the edge of the blades and the very back of the handle to each tool. The amethyst seems to be what stores the powers. The largest amount of any certain style of tool in the collection are needles. These needles are incredibly long at around 8 inches in length. They are around the same thickness as middle range knitting needles. There are thirteen of these needles and they seem to be the main part of what stores any of the powers.
The tools appear upon the summoning of them by either Sadira or Saul. They seems to have a specific link to this pair and respond to their commands. When summoned they come in a leather wrap, the wrap itself being clasped shut by a silver buckle with an amethyst stone in the middle of it. The wrap itself seems to have writing written on it, which when opened glows red until closed again. The tools are laid within their respectful holders and places within the wrap itself.

Would the person be able to stop it at all? o.O' Like, if they were bad, but have an extremely strong will power against it? Just wondered since it seems a little forced. ^^

o.O' This made me think, bringing people back without the normal, go to hell thing. Is he drawing back the soul, like as it makes its travel to hell or heaven is he dragging it back to its body, and then inplanting darkness or whatever? =3


If you could answer them, that'd be great =D

If the person knew what was happening - then yes they would, but they'd need extensive willpower to combat the control. It takes me a couple of lines, so they'd catch on quite quickly to stop it.

And he would summon the spirit if he was in the material realm - this would be considered dark magic. Therefore, it'd take me far more lines than to visit hell and get it, and makes more appropriate scening. He then forces it to recognise its own body - willing or unwilling to go into it. However, he could goto hell to get it - which is just as long for him, considering he's not a daemon.

So a person with incredibly low will power is powerless? they have no way to combat against it? o.O'

Not completely powerless - but they'd struggle a lot, and would eventually have to break free with someone elses help, if they got caught in it

I'd discuss it with the person beforehand. Plus - Keri isn't pure evil, he'd find it a lot harder to control her than shikyo if you get me?

o.O' Good point jai, I wondered though, ... I mean someone like Legacy, she was born to do this, shes not truely evil, shes just doing what she was created to do, God created her to keep the balance, not to be evil, although many people see her as it. Her soul is pure, shes just bringing the balance. Legacy is not evil, its just what people potray her as. xD

Okay right, you needed a bit of assistance with the order. So here it is:

Angel - Untouchable (depends on if they have been possessed for example lizael)
Mermaid
Neko (somehow harder to control)
Talem
Humans / Philodox / Saiyans / Mages - Middle point (they can be swayed either way)
Vampire/Lycans (except philodox garou)
Demons
Baraku - Instant control (darkest beings, all they know is evil)


There ofcourse, are exceptions character wise. Some characters may be relatively good or evil despite their race, so this isn't a set rule, it's just a guideline, for example. Idril is a lot meaner than Angelus or Heidi, so she'd be moreso easily tempted. Angeline is currently using violet tethers with Lizael, so she's slightly more good. Some races aren't set here, so they can be placed by you in consideration to how evil the race is in your opinion. Sparadus - spiders, generally would be darker and so would kamareon, etc.


Characters that stand out:
Palina - god knows how good/evil he is. He's nicer than all other demons.
Destiny + Legacy - I really do not know
Jin - although good at heart, his powers point to him being more twisted
Tia - split into three parts, it's hard to determine so base it as. Tia = pure good
Middle person - Middle, 3 - Lol EBIL

you get my drift. If you notice that you're being taken over, just use energy to combat it, same as Ica's blood stuff. However, this is a lot harder for some than it is for others - Senzar would find it much more difficult than anyone else to break out of, so would Shikyo. Tia, Lizael and other angels would find themselves break it more easily.
