~Raiden Version 23 Appears in: Quirenyun's Imprinted~ Heaven's Auxiliary -* Quirenyun's Divide~ Phantom Convergence Character Color: #074C57 Raiden Pthalo Theme: [Temp Theme] Raiden Version 23 Theme~ "Come Together" Name: Raiden Version 23, Also later known as Takashouha Raiden Age: 19 Gender: Male Race:Diclonius Appearance: Spoiler Personality: At first glance, Raiden seems to be a genuine blunt brute that does not hesitate in pointing out something that may conflict with his interest and ideals. Generally respectful, intelligent, and at times sarcastic, it may look as though he does not have any knowledge of fun. He doesn’t. However, his willingness to attempt new things and an overall iron-willed attitude towards situations seem to allow him to adapt to anything quite well. However, Raiden does have some problems regarding his social skills at times, causing him to sometimes miss social gestures and cues. Despite being new to Mantua, he seems to portray a sense of security in his surroundings which manifests in him being headstrong, confident, and assertive to what he wants or does. He is a natural calculating man and isn't the one who likes to improvise without making proper arrangements to plan out his actions beforehand. Behind that, he does have some moments of tenderness of sorts; that being understanding, a great listener, and empathetic. Though he restricts such traits a lot out of a backhand survival mentality. Abilities: --Heightened Senses: Raiden’s senses are finely sharp in terms of intensity. His mind and body can sense slick and soft movements from afar to sensing the mood itself with ease. This causes Raiden to usually be in a highly alert state. -- Adaptability:The result of Raiden's abnormal psychological/physiological mental form. He is a quick learner and very attentive, and because of such advantages he could even mimic abilities with practice. This ability, some of his friends predict, may give way to the first natural manifestation of a limited Crebrimpery. Powers: --Vectors: Psychokinetic limbs also known as Vectors are a weapon of choice. These limbs are created by a vast, compressed series of psychokinetic frequencies and can be manipulated by will to go from tangible to intangible states at any given moment. On command, Raiden can manifest up to 9 vectors, but only has control of 3 in present time. --Sacred Lightning: As the result of fusing with a gatekeeper Hyphura, Raiden has complete control of what can be called "Sacred Lightning." This heavily magical "property" of sorts is [most of the time] used as a defensive mechanism for Raiden, allowing him to create and scribe seals. In addition, the Diclonius can also command natural lightning from his surroundings and create it as well. Some of his Sacred Lightning techniques range from creating capture seals and isolation seals to much more complex magic such as body takeover techniques and auto-aim barrages. Though those are his well-known techniques, he is the kind of person known to expand his abilities very often and secretly. Weaponry: --Socom Handgun: As required in his unit, he must carry around a very hefty Socom tactical handgun for defensive purposes only. --Bowie Knife: A slick, sharp tactical knife capable of tearing flesh with one powerful swipe at a target. Although his vectors can be manipulated to be just as sharp as his bowie, Raiden keeps this strapped to his leg for any emergency use. --Vectors: At will, his psychokinetic limbs can change into deadly sharpened “javelins” , piercing arcs, and can be split into individual strands of vibrational frequencies that can impact a target from as far as 9 meters away. Combat Style: Raiden’s combat style is a mix between true physical and precise striking using his slight knowledge of Mantuanese combat style and speedy strikes from his Vectors. Although his tastes and effectiveness are in short-ranged combat, he seems to do just as fine with long-ranged attacks. Although with long-range fighting, he tends to attempt to close in the space between his targets using his vector. History: To be revealed in RP Trivia: --Raiden is a very heavy sleeper. --Takashouha, the last name he'll eventually adopt, is a Greno-Mantuanese word meaning "Honorable Spirit Man." --Although he was one of the weaker Diclonii in GARNET, he was considered one of the most intelligent of his kind. His mental capabilities enable him to solve problems quickly, learn dialects, and even reverse engineer items. Raiden is a highly-adaptive being, capable of very impressive feats and flexible in any situation or battle. The result of such mind power grants him the ability to "morph" his vectors and even split his psychokinetic frequencies into individual strands that can be very useful and lethal.
