Okay, round two. I get the feeling he's still a bit too powerful, but I am open to suggestions. CHARACTER APPLICATIONName:
Clive "Pain" BeckettAge:
Black Dragon martial arts Weapon Description:
To hell with weapons! A real man fights with his fist and feet! Black Dragon martial arts is very similar to Shaolin style martial arts. They differ in that the Black Dragon style focuses on lethality, rather than incapacitation. The death of a practitioner during Kumite, a form of training, is uncommon but not unheard of. Specialization:
Melee fighting. He is capable of dealing out tremendous amounts of physical damage, while also being able to handle vast quantities of physical abuse with little or no problems. Personality:
A two faced man, he is often times reserved, wise and mature beyond his years, and a hardline stoic. This attitude shifts tremendously, however, when he is fighting, as he can become a wild (but not reckless) warrior, that freely shouts threats of death and dismemberment, and who seeks to cow his opponents with his threats.
It should be noted that while he does appear to be in a frenzied state, he maintains a strict control over himself under most circumstances. This control only falters after prolonged fighting, or as he starts to suffer serious damage. Backstory:
Born to a graduate of Trabia Garden, one of the survivors of the attack thirty years ago, he was admitted to the Garden by the wishes of his father (His mother having died during child birth). However, his time at the Garden was filled with abject misery.
Homesickness and uncertainty, coupled with a low self esteem, ensured that for most of his young life, he was the subject of bullying. He did little but endure it, and never spoke of it, for fear of retaliation from the bullies; consequently, the Garden faculty were only rarely able to step in and help him out.
As he grew older and matured, he began to shed his original shy and passive nature. Through meditation practices, he was able to find and draw on an inner reservoir of strength, and he learned to trust in himself and his abilities.
He was one of the best students in the martial arts program he took. As he had become something of an overachiever in his 'later' years, it is no surprise that he went to try and become a member of SeeD. He was thankful for the transition to Balamb Garden, where he felt like he could truly reinvent himself, and finally cast away the old chains that still bound him; however, that is not always so easy.
Broken One has been with him for a very long time, and unfortunately, he does not remember how he came to first meet the Guardian Force. He just knows that she's always been there for him.
This is his usual style when lounging around in what he considers "street clothes". For obvious reasons, he has both a Balamb and a Trabia Garden uniform. Additionally, he is some times known to wear a mask that appears to be made from the skull of a humanoid creature; it is intended to frighten enemies.
She actually appears with a gaping hole in her chest, with the heart she holds presumably being her own. Her head often hangs at an extremely lopsided angle, as if it the neck has been snapped.
High strength and vitality growth, Lifefont,
damaged by healing magic, weakened resistance to all magic (excepting an immunity to Dark).Special Attack:
Vengeful Malice: Deals moderate physical damage to all enemies, with a chance of inflicting stun/paralysis, and an obscenely low chance of instant knock out.
