A black sneak suit covered with pouches and hidden linings. A hood and mask to conceal his identity, and a small cape.Appearance: Personality:
Kelsier is always cool, calm, collected, and level headed no matter the situation. His upbringing and lifestyle have made his way of looking at things a necessity if he wants to live another day. One nervous mistake, one wrong move, and he's dead. So he makes sure that no matter what the situation is, he maintains as much control over it as possible. He tends to see people for their value to him over friendship in the beginning. Force of habit really, but if you stick by him and earn his trust, he'd put his life on the line for you. Don't be surprised if he expects you to do the same for him though. He's also a bit of a joker, which tends to make people drop their guard around him. Skills:
Magic Skill - Darkness Magic
Kelsier has an intrinsic connection to shadows and darkness, allowing him to manipulate them for his own uses. So far he has access to two distinct forms of Darkness spells.
Shadow Blending - When shadows are present, Kelsier is capable of blending in with them. His bodies connection with the darkness makes it so that he becomes a living shadow himself. Whilst moving in the shadows he will be practically invisible, even if someone was looking directly at where he was.
Shadow Step - The Shadow Step is a magical technique that allows Kelsier to convert his entire body into dark energy and instantaneously teleport from one point in space to another. It's mainly used to disorient opponents in a fight as well as augmenting Kelsier's fighting style, or for quick getaways and escapes. (Shadows/Darkness are not necessary to use this ability, but it does make it easier and more efficient as Kel can draw on the shadows instead of his own energy)
Combat Skill - Dual Wield
Extra Skills -
Sixth Sense(A tingling he gets when things are about to go wrong or out of the ordinary)
Enhanced Perception(With enough concentration, his perception of time shifts so things seem to happen in slow motion)Attributes:
Born Dominic Dufresne, Kelsier was the only heir to the prestigious Defresne Shipping Company. His family had been one of the wealthiest and most powerful in the city for generations, built on the backbreaking work of his great great great grandfather with numerous legal and illicit business dealings. The power center of the DSC was in Gravenport, which meant despite their power, they were always at risk just like everyone else. Eight years though, eight years he made it before tragedy befell the entirety of his family.
A few other families decided that together they could get a good sum of money from Dufresne Shipping. In the night, all of the guards and his parents were killed. Luckily Dominic was staying with a friend for that weekend while his rooms were being refurbished. News spread quickly, and the rival families split the property and holdings between themselves even faster. Dominic would have been killed the moment he was found if not for his fathers best friend, a man like a brother to him named Morlun. Morlun had numerous contacts in the underworld, which was how it was so easy for Dorian(Dominic's father) to continue with the undersided nature of the business.
Morlun found him and whisked young Dominic away into the night. He told him in no short terms that Dominic Dufresne was dead. He'd died that night with his mother and father. He'd even left the body of a young boy in his place so people would believe the rumors he started circulating. He took him under his wing and began training him to survive in this harsh world, and so he could eventually do what both of them wanted...take revenge for those taken from them. For the next several years, "Kelsier Fredericks" trained under Morlun and his men to become the best the underworld had to offer.
He excelled at his training, and even at a young age he became infamous. Word was he could steal anything or assassinate anyone...for the right price of course. One job that seemed easy enough should have raised his eyebrow, but it didn't. He was hired to kill one of the men who'd orchestrated the downfall of his family. He jumped at the chance, but when he got there he found out that it was a trap. Somehow he'd found out who Kelsier really was, and wanted to kill him. Kel did succeed his mission though; he killed the man before he got caught and made sure that his secret followed that man to his grave. His sentence? The Arena. He awaits the moment where he can escape and get back to business as usual.Additional:
No guy on guy.
