Alright, here is my character. Let me know what you guys think, I'm perfectly willing to change some stuff around or invent a completely new one if needed. I will upload a few pictures to try and illustrate his forms later this evening. Take his personality information with a grain of salt, I'm better at flushing out a personality during roleplay.Name:
Male Typically (See Appearance for more information)Sexuality:
Straight, though variesAge:
Corin, depending on the situation, is known to have three forms.
1) The first and the rarest form to view the demon in would be considered his ‘true’ form. As the manifestation of the hatred of plants and nature towards all things human his primary form is that of an enormous, ever shifting monster. It could be an entangled ball of thorny vines that lash at anything near, a demonic dead tree the size of a skyscraper, or something as small as a black thorn.
Except with more vines and stuff. Hard to find a good picture for what's in my head.
2) His second, and the most likely form to find him in is something of a mix between a human and a plant. He has realized in his age that communicating with other demons, even teachers can be difficult in his true form. So instead Corin finds a human suffering in the 7th circle of hell and adopts their body. Thorns enwrap their body, and the demon rides their form completely, using their body until it is either destroyed or he grows bored before finding a new host. More often he prefers males over females, and if asked why he amusingly replies that “Women don’t have branches”. However he can choose to adopt a female, and does so from time to time. Ironically Corin exclusively adopts the bodies of people who in life were activists in trying to save the world, finding their failure the most appalling crime of all. This process is excruciatingly painful for the host. This second form appears as the person, save the mixture of plant influences in their physical body. They may have vines for hair, or the veins on their skin may appear to be vines running just underneath the flesh. Ultimately Corin can choose for then to appear as human or nonhuman as he wishes, knowing however that taking it too far will destroy his host body, forcing the monster to find a new one.
3) The last form is the one Corin adopts when going to the mortal world, which appears simply as his host save for some major differences. Knowing that the mortal world would not wish to see one of their dead walking around again, Corin edits the physical form to be unrecognizable by shifting body mass, hair color, height, etc.Race:
Demonic Nature ElementalBirth Circle:
7th, the Circle of ViolenceAbilities:Green Thumb:
Being a plant himself, Corin is able to understand on a much deeper level the wants and needs of plants. As a result he is unsurpassed in his ability to tend and care for gardens or plants.Martial Arts (For lack of a better term):
Corin has shown a surprising expertise in one on one combat. As his form does not need to obey any laws of how a human body should be able to stretch or bend, he has proven to be a terrifying combatant when mixing in the usage of his Powers with melee combat. For a time Corin even took to adopting Samurai who had killed themselves long ago, suffering in his circle to learn fighting techniques.Precision Range:
Given his affinity for thorns, Corin has adopted a sadistic enjoyment in shooting and pinning people with either large or small thorns from his body. Constant practice on the less fortunate in the 7th circle has made him incredibly accurate at long distances Powers: Vines, Thorns, and Branches:
While in Corin’s second form he is able to summon a seemingly endless supply of vines, thorns or thick branches to attack his opponent, controlling them independently at his wish. However too much without allowing his body to adjust will literally tear his host to shreds, forcing out his first form. In this state he is afforded the same ability, but on a much more massive scale depending on his chosen size.Poison or Aphrodisiac:
Corin is able to release a powerful pollin from his body to act as a natural poison which can be deadly to much lesser demons or mortals. However he is also capable of shifting these spores into a powerful aphrodisiac, which has in the past proven to be quite successful against demons of a similar caliber to himself.Plant Control:
This ability can only be utilized while in his circle, or on the mortal plain, allowing Corin to control the growth and movements of plants around him.Possible Club Interest:
Gardening Club, Martial Arts Club, Book ClubPersonality:
One thing that can be said for Corin is that his unbridled hatred for humanity cannot be questioned. There are few things that disgust him more than the smell of smoke, humans, or concrete. However when entering the mortal world Corin has been able to control this anger by reminding himself that without the respect of those and hell, and the trust of his teachers, he would be destroyed. Though he may notice every instance of someone litering, or stop to pause at a construction site, he would remain silent and simply move on. The demon certainly is not the quiet type, though also would not presume to try and lecture his fellow demons or teachers on the importance of nature. He finds himself in an odd place, existing in a realm of ice and fire while he himself is a being a being of twisted life, surrounded by death.
He talks very little of his own personal beliefs, save for those concerning humans, because he knows that most people in hell could give two shits about plants. He can be charismatic when he wants to be, not unwilling to laugh or have fun if the situation is appropriate. His primary intention in hell is to seek more power, though uncertain what he might do once he has it.Background Information:
Though Corin has only the vaguest memory of his life, he knows for certain that he was once a grand tree. One that had been growing since the birth of such plants on this earth, weathering season after season, storm after storm until he stood taller than any other. His roots ran so deep that an entire forest had sprouted up beneath his canopy, and what magic still existed in the world before man saw fit to grant him some semblance of life and consciousness. His memories on this time are vague due to the fact that unlike now, calling him 'aware' was far too generous. What seemed like millenia passed until one day man came to the shores of his land. With fire, stone and metal they tore his world down around him. Tree after tree was turned from the earth to use as shelter from rain and snow. His 'children' so to speak were burned to make heat and cook animals for mortal men.
Until finally one day none stood but the great oak himself. Humans at this time were far too stupid or well equipped to bring something as large and ancient as Corin down, which he felt would be his saving grace. But such was not the way of man. As Corin learned first hand, when humans could not find a way through a problem, they burned their way. For no other reason it seemed to him than to show dominance over the earth and the grand image that was nature, he was burned down. The wind whistled through his branches, the howl the only screams Corin was able to produce. Finally there was nothing left of him save a ruined patch of land miles long. Thus was the end of him, and the beginning in a way.
Corin awoke in the 7th circle of hell, aware at once of his new purpose. He would survive, and grow strong so that he may one day make humans suffer for their ignorance and waste. Hundreds of years have passed since that day, and the expansion of humans has only grown more vigorous and efficient.Perhaps the only thing Corin hates more than humans is weakness. The demon has accepted the fact that his intentions are not to save the planet, understand now that his death came from his weakness and inability to defend himself. A weakness that all plants present. He simply wishes to punish for his suffering.
Much of his early years were spent punishing the violent and suicidal, discovering his unusual fascination for inflicting suffering on those who had already brought it on themselves by descending into his layer in the first place. Over time the demon has also found a powerful respect for those with strength and will, acting quite respectful around those of a higher age than him in the bowels of hell. He admires their sheer ferocity and power, hoping to one day obtain the same degree.
