Hey. If the role for Mercury Knight is still open, would like to post here my character suggestion for him for approval. I need to be heading off at the moment, so I'm going to add a few touches still to it, especially his background, but it's mostly finished.
Name: Akio Tokimune
Sailor/Knight Identity: Mercury Knight
Height: 175 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Weapon/Equipment: Sword of Mercury - The ancient sword, carried by the Knight of Mercury in protection of his princess. The blue hilted blade has the power to assume shape according to the users image of it. In Akios hands, it assumes the shape of a katana and possesses the power to extinguish any fire it touches. Also gives limited protection against supernatural fire.
Turn Ons: Intelligent women, assertive/powerful women, oral, romance, rough sex
Fav. Color: Light blue and white
Fav. Food: Noodles, takoyaki, beefSkills:
Martial Arts Master- Akios family runs a Daito-Ryu Aikijujutsu dojo and he himself has already been granted a teaching licence for his skills in the art, despite his young age. Accomplished and very skilled in the traditional martial art, Akio also is skilled in the Ono-Ha Ittou-Ryu sword technique taught alongside the weaponless arts.
Medical knowledge: While not studying the field itself, Akio has picked up some knowledge from his older brother, enough that he can perform basic CPR and first aid when needed.Physical Appearance:
Standing at 175 cm, Akio is not particularly tall or short, being a slim young man. While handsome, his face tends to look rather emotioneless, giving him an odd aura of someone either not quite being there in the present or seeing more than normal people do, depending on the viewer. He wears traditional clothes, yukatas and kimonos, quite a lot in his spare time, favouring them over more normal modern clothing.http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7280/7725465606_069df37d2e_b.jpgSenshi/Knight Attacks:
Mirage Cut - This high speed attack starts with Akio standing still with his sword in its scabbard. Especially used as a counter attack, Akio moves past his opponent in a high speed burst of motion, leaving behind a mirage of himself before appearing behind his opponent, sheating his sword. The attack itself is a single cut at a high speed, capable of cutting through even extremely hard materials.
Water Reflects The Moon - This attack isn't his strongest one, but suitable against several opponents. Akio swings his sword around him, emittting a high speed stream of water from his blade in a 360 degree around him. The stream is thin and fast enough that it slices like a sword, capable of cutting down several opponents when surrounded.
Emotional Control: Calm - Akio in his Knight form is able to release an aura of calm around him. For his friends, he's able to cool down emotions running wild and help them therefore think clearly. For his enemies, he's able to calm down hostility in those with weaker wills.Weaknesses:
Heartless - It's not quite correct to call Akio heartless in the sense that he has no emotions. His problem has more to do with expressing them and being calm and collected and analytical to a fault. This can make him seem emotionally void sometimes and unable to understand others, which can strain his relationships with his friends.
Lack of initiative - Akio also tends to overanalyze things that aren't related to his own expertise, tending to make him take his time to make decisions, sometimes needing the proverbial kick in the butt to get him moving.
Driving - Akio, can't for the life of him drive. Anything. Not even a bicycle. Despite his physical skills and balance, even using rollerskates is Background
: Akio was born into a family etched in tradition. His family line had run a dojo for generations as well as having doctors of more traditional as well as modern medicine in it. While smart, Akio never took up studying at school as much to heart as he did his family martial arts, taking it in like a fish to water. While his older brother headed off to college to study to be a doctor, Akio remained at the dojo after graduating high school, his future seeming to be in taking over the dojo as the main instructor one day.
Because of his sometimes difficult to understand nature, he so far hasn't had much luck keeping a steady girlfriend, much to his parents chagrin. This also applied to friends and throughout school, he had only had a few close friends who tended to be the outcast types, who took cover behind Akio, capable of protecting himself even against bigger and older students when he was young. The fights were usually brief and he was soon left alone, though he did gain a reputation at school and was close to being expelled after one particular bully found himself tossed and landing badly on his shoulder on concrete, resulting in broken bones and dislocation.
Now at 21, his free time is spent in keeping up the old dojo as well as reading books of all topics. Overall, he's not very educated outside of high school knowledge, but has very good general knowledge as well as on some more obscure topics. Recently, superhero anime and manga have become somewhat of a secret pleasure of his and he has been watching and reading them with interest, wondering what being a hero would be like.
