((Expect another updated pic of Nuncia within the near future sometime))Name:
Nuncia Algos ((Exile is the title she is called by by others of the Sylvaan, or any Elven race that recognises the brand of one exiled))Class:
Kris: The most dangerous and rare of dagger-type weapons. They're longer than most dagger-types but still shorter than a short sword. They have been created with specially formed, wavy blades and are the favorites of Assassins, Rogues, and Necromancers alike. They retain all dagger-type properties, while its length allows for easier parrying and more damaging attacks.
Leather Armour Top+Gloves: Top fitted as a vest to protect her back, the front cut to the base of her ribs leaving her abdomen open; the gloves were modified to leave her hands open, covering her wrists up to half way to her elbow. This armour was once owned by a powerful man who was rumoured to have fought with the best of DI and this armour helped him in those battles. How she came across it is still a mystery. Maybe her gods haven't forsaken her altogether yet.
(Bought from MikeEB/Joshen in Marketplace)
Skeletal Foot: It really has no use, save to maybe intimidate others to thinking that she killed a person to attain this foot, more or less it is a reminder for her of the little skeletal girl that opened her mind to the idea of new ways to go about things. It may be used as a walking stick if anything for her smaller primate forms? (Attained via poll for Top of the Roof)Gold: 0gSpecials/Spells List:
=>Howler Monkey (Alouatta palliata)
: This monkey is best known for its loud calls that can be heard from up to a 3 mile radius. Only about a foot in body length with a prehensile tail as long as their bodies, this monkey can get out of dodge, or hang around. (Im building this one for specials mostly, its not really an attacker form)
(Sewer Rat, common) Rattus norvegicus
: This rodent is only about 60cm long including its tail, with sharp tiny claws and teeth. Not very strong, it can squeeze into tight spaces easily.
(Mouflon Ram) Ovis gmelini
, thick skull, horns, and hide raise defense against attacks, as well as agility and dexterity for jumping quickly and avoiding obstacles. Horns are curled to be used as blunt damage, no piercing effects
=>Snow Leopard Uncia uncia
, cold resistance, low long distance speed, claws, teeth, excellent balance with the use of its tail (medium)
=>Panda Ailuropoda melanoleuca
, higher than average damage resistance because of its oblivious nature, slow moving, swipes with thick paws and small claws, and bites with teeth
=>Silver-back Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei)
: This huge Gorilla weighs about 550lbs and when standing up on its hind legs is a little over 6 ft tall with a full arm span of a little over 7ft. Huge. With its weight its a very slow moving creature, yet what it lacks in speed it makes up with strength (equal to a real gorilla, which is pretty strong) as well as its long canines that are able to pierce leather armor.
(strong)(3 posts)Specials for Transformations:
Ram-- 'Dashing Ram' (weak)Skills List:
Pain Oblivious, Animal Attuning, Animal Instinct, Nothing Gets Left Behind, Rabid Transformation
,Speed of the WildsExplanations for Specials:
'Dashing Ram': A temporary mild speed boost is added to the ram to help it get into long ranged enemies and to deliver more painful blows with its horns. (able to be used 2x/battle)
(weak)Explanations of Skills
She was often gored by boars or bitten by animals she hunted, so its only natural that she would dull the feeling of pain a bit better than the next person. She can dull pain to a point, just long enough to get what needs to get done done.
Being so close to the souls of animals has given Nuncia the ability to communicate with medium sized animals, able to understand and 'speak' with the animal. (This cannot be used to order attacks, or notify of intruders, unless permitted within RP.)
Because of her prolonged training with shifting into her weaker animal forms and her training in these forms, she can return to one weaker form after shifting out of it, but only once per battle. (extra weak transformation, 1 use per battle, 4 post limit)
--Nothing Gets Left Behind:
Since the time Nuncia started shifting, everything was always dropped where her for changed, and she would have to go back for it. She has worked hard to get the idea down to not only shift herself, but also her clothing and weapons with her, so then she leaves nothing behind.
(Poison Jewel): Nuncia's capacity as a shapeshifter changed drastically one day when she happened upon a strange, emerald-like gem. As if charmed by it, she reached to touch the object... only to have it forcibly absorbed into her skin. Ever since, some of her transformations have been more feral than usual, and her claws and teeth seem to hold a different quality than normal. At her will, Nuncia can decide to morph into an animal with odd form of rabies for 8 posts. This disease acts exactly like a poison jewel, draining both the physical strength and stamina of anyone effected. At the end of this duration, however, Nuncia is forced back into her Sylvan form. Additionally, this is an alternative form of shifting that allows her to shift directly from one animal to another without reverting to her natural form between. This shifting form uses her transformations just as if she had normally shifted to them, but negating the cool down between. 1x per battle
--Speed of the Wilds:
Nuncia has spent more than her fair share of time in slower forms, though she always favoured speed. So with massive amounts of training, she had increased her movement speed drastically. While in larger slower forms, she can now move at a moderate pace, a vast improvement in her mind. Mid to high speed forms (including her own natural form) now move at an increased rate, not quite as fast to become a blur, but close. [strong]
Aisu Algos, elder twin brother to NunciaRace:
All Skills and Specials are divided into Joined and Singular categories, representing which of the Souls are more dominate at the time, or if both souls can use the body for their own purposes. A Singular skillset or special can only be used by that Soul when they are dominate. A Soul only becomes dominate if either the other soul recedes, or if they have a stronger standpoint on the situation.Skills
For example, Aisu and the Wolf are put up against a Villager wielding a flaming stick.
So where a Sylvaan would be able to rationalize the idea of a stick on fire being yes, a dangerous weapon, but also not a threat if you splash it with water, the wolf would just have an overwhelming fear, because its fire. Also, the Sylvaan would be able to point out that Villagers rarely have much experience when it comes to combat, and would therefore give the one who has seen war the advantage; the Wolf however is still freaking out about the fire. That villager is now the most dangerous creature in the world to that wolf. Where one would run and the other would attack, it could mean the difference depending on who was 'in the drivers seat'. Because there would be no amount of rationalizing with a scared wolf, the Wolf would win this battle within the vessel; there would be no way for Aisu to get close enough to attack the villager without the Wolf's soul struggling for control, and with the Wolf's mindset in the forefront, there would be no strategized plan of attack. It would be that Wolf is gone from that damned flaming stick and that terrifying human holding it like some pyro-god.
Specific specials and skills would be set up for each individual soul, but because the body is the same with the same capabilities, it would come down to more specific skill sets the individual souls possess.
((Intellect on Aisu's part wont come in until appropriate skills/specials have been had.))
: From Another Lifetime
, It Feels Like Trouble
-From Another Lifetime
: With his soul and memories all combined with that of the wolf's, it can sometimes be hard to differentiate himself from the wolf. This can be seen as a drawback to some, but others may find the merit in combining two such different creatures, just to see what these two very different minds and abilities could come up with in any given situation. However, at times the souls war with each other over what to do, and this battle of resolve ends with one soul becoming dominate over the other, changing the mindset and skills/specials of that soul to fit their approach to things. Because the soul has to be stronger than the other, these Singular skill/special sets stand apart from what both souls can do, lending each soul its own individuality within the singular vessel. (This catalyst will give a small boost to 'Singular' skills/specials)
; catalyst, medium]
-It Feels Like Trouble
: Being a Sylvaan in a wolf's body has its pro's and con's, mostly when it comes to communicating. While he would love to just be able to speak with his sister in his normal Sylvaan ways, the wolf form does have a few lacking areas making that near impossible. However, his Wolf soul also has things to communicate with his new pack-mate, and while Aisu cannot speak, the wolf has found a way around that, by creating an empathic link with the feral Sylvaan, solving not only Aisu's primary issue, but also helping them both out in the long run. (Ability for both souls to communicate empathically to Nuncia, and her in return).
Nuncia Algos lived in the shaded forests of Tilth, and for many years lived fairly well, though she knew she was different from the rest of them. While most of the other tribesmen and women hunted and scavenged and protected the forest with themselves and the animals of the forest, Nuncia became
animals. At first she had no control over her skills, shifting into an animal whenever danger was near or whenever she felt threatened, or angered. She had been careful to stay out of the camp when this happened, but one day she and another tribesman had gotten into a heated argument; he had claimed her as his mate, and she refused to obey, which led to a fight between the two of them, and as she felt herself begin to shift, she tried to stop it, but could not stop it fully and the man saw her in a half transformed state. He attacked her, and she defended herself, but the animal in her went savage and killed him instead. She ran and hid in the forest, awaiting the day when they would find her and punish her for her crime, but it wasn't until the next year, that they found her and with a brand of a traitor exiled her from the forest. She left the forest hesitantly, always staying on the outskirts of the forest until she had mastered her shifting ways, and could now control the forms with a bit easier flourish, turning her curse into a gift. She then deigned to leave the land of her birth and leaving the forest behind, voyaged out to travel and find a new home for herself...Biography (Aisu):
tbaAdditional Information (Nuncia):
This Sylvan has a habit of claiming woods and forests as her own, and going through them to 'clear out' and unwanted visitors, since she believes they are encroaching on her
territory. She doesn't stray too far from woods, unless she is traveling between them, often moving from one to the next. Almost never will one see her in a town, unless she has no other way around to a wood, or someone has taken the liberty to escort her in. Not dealing with people well, she tends to be aggressive and threatening to intimidate her opponent, and will resort to violence to show her dominance over them if they are not scared off right away. She has a deep thought process that revolves around her own pride and dignity, and will take action against any mock her. Staring is a no. She also doesn't understand the need for more clothing than what she has since no others of her tribe ever wore anything else, and that she believes it will hinder her more than she is willing to be hindered; often is she approached by people of this realm who remark (or stare) at her dress (or lack thereof) and it only adds fuel to the pyre for her anger against them. However like any animal, she can be deterred by a greater force than her own, but her pride is big enough to overlook a mild advantage of a foe.Physical Description (Nuncia):
--Weight: 140 lbs
--Eyes: bright yellow orange, like a hawks
--Hair: long black, to her waist, tied in a long length of leather, resembling a whip down her back
--Skin: medium brown gray, black markings resembling swirls of spots along her skin
--Special Markings (list of visible scars):
-a brand of a flame on her right collarbone/shoulder, and various scars mixed in her markings from her hunting (flame brand)
-a bolt hole scar in the center of the flame, a white circle in a black flame (Ellia in Mistaken Identity)
-an inverted 'cross' scar cutting across the front of her torso, the vertical straight down the center of her body and the horizontal cutting across just above her navel (Sutera in Ruined)
-a wispy burn scar marring the right side of her face, from along the base of her nose across her cheek; thin tendril lines, rather than a massive deep burn, but still pretty nasty of a marking to have (Tyzrk in How Can a God Die)
--Dress: She wears just a simple loincloth, with her Kris in the belt. Since this is her first venture out of the forest, she knows not of what others wear, only what her tribe and other like tribes wears. She also has experienced that wearing too many clothes is restricting when she shifts, so the less the better she believes.
Since this world was home to some very powerful people, Nuncia has come to acquire a set of leather armour from a man she found by chance in the woods; the leather top was fitted as a vest that reaches to the base of her ribs, with gloves fitted as bracers to leave her hands free (in essence, finger-less gloves tied onto the wrists, thinner than regular bracers but still with the general look).Physical Description (Aisu):
: 2'3ft at the shoulder (about mid-thigh height)
: 82.3 lbs
: swirling Amber, filled with an intelligence and understanding
: Grey brown medium length with black swirling stripes along his flanks, creating patterns unlike any other wolf known in this world; black markings also swirl to decorate his face in cleaner sharper stripe/swirls
: Is a wolf. With the mind and soul of a Sylvaan.Aisu Image
-flame brand on his right shoulder blade, hidden within a small bald patch of fur (see Nuncia's brand)
--Special Traits: Out of Habitat: Sylvaan elves do not usually go out of their element, the forest. As such, they seem to stand out. They never tread lightly because they were never taught to do so, etc.Images:My attempt at Nuncia #1Nuncia #2
Forest Blending: Sylvaan elves almost always have an advantage while in the forest. Their nature allows them to hide with very little effort.
Hawk eye: Because they live in the forest, it's to no surprise that they have excellent vision. This allows them to aim better and spot things with greater ease.
