Drake ValentineCharacter Name:
‘Sadao’ - Moto, Taiki Age:
None? - Learned Magecraft and trained by a woman whose a member of the Church's Burial Agency.Role:
Bystander / Observer Personality:
Sadao is a complex individual, and usually comes off being socially awaked when he attempts to blend in as a normal human being. These he attempts, he does study up on "how to' books, not to any avail. By default he is quiet and observant, emotionless and hollow. This comes from the territory of the morbid events in his past and the killer he has later resigned himself to be. He does not believe this makes him a bad guy, he just is not afraid of getting his hands bloody for the greater good.
He does not act in his self interest, instead he has his set of scales in passing judgment. Naturally it is often forbidden for him to intervene with the normal lives of ordinary humans unless magecraft or other supernatural roles are involved. The Holy Grail War is the same, his place is in the shadows and sidelines. Watching, waiting, and acting when masters breach their bounds.History:Trauma Past:
Sadao, not the name the youth was born with nor is the one he openly goes by in the public. The title was something given to him when he was rescued from the hellish life he had been imprisoned with; though for starters one should reflect upon his distant past that is only known mostly to him and what he endured. The horrors his eyes seen, the mute nature that it had left him in years even after being saved. It wasn’t till learning the meaning behind the name that was given him that his eyes would see such a glimmer of light.
The boy live an ordinary life, carefree of most worries. The faces of his family is vague now, just shadowy images left behind in his memory bank. He can usually more visually recall that of the other children that he was with, but holds little remembrance if they were friends or not or fell victims. He can definitely recall the images of those that had damned him and what he has been put through. The boy along with other children were abducted by a heretic cult of mages. Death would have been salvation and sometimes he dreamed of it with the time spent with that group.
Weeks, months, years? Time was lost on the boy, but not the cruel experiments that came. He saw many children become victims; they were nothing more than experiments to the cultists. The horrors of magic running wild in a small body, the screams of the dying. Those that did survive became abominations, tainted and twisted. There were rarer subjects, some whose bodies did not yield right away to the various tests, ‘Sadao’ was one of them. This alone was not a blessing or for him it wasn’t at the time. To have a resistance meant that he also had a potential of wielding magecraft; which later he will discover. His small body never yielded to disastrous experimentations.
Inevitably the Church’s agents found the hideout of these heretics, but it was too late for most of the children there. The heretics resulted to a cowardly act, before their inevitable demise. They activated the incantations on their remaining subjects, including ‘Sadao,’ robbing almost all of them of their humanity and turning them against the Executors. The boy was the only one to resist the influence of the magecraft, and though some of the Executors were still to prepare to kill him even afterwards, a woman stopped them and decided to take the boy in.An Alternative Path:
-WIPStriving Towards the Future
- WIP Skills:Acrobatics:
His body never excelled much on a physical strength side, instead he centered a good portion of his learning suitable to his smaller stature size. As a result, he is quite flexible and agile upon his feet and capable of scaling over objects that some may see as impossible.Perception:
He possesses keen eyesight, allowing him to generally outline the path of a moving object beforehand. This core perception can even save him from rounds of a bullet if he visually sees the weapon and reacts before it is fired towards him. Martial Arts:
Trained in a variety of techniques(mainly unarmed and disarming) since his time spent as an Executor. They may not fall a demon or noble servant, though up close he is more than capable of bringing down a heretic mage or master. Magecraft and Other Specializations: Counter Magic:
A Magecraft that disrupts the activity of Magic Circuits, thus preventing the conversion of prana and the casting of spells.Elemental Magic:
He has study elemental magic, although he does not directly use it. He has a base knowledge around it and that is going as far as a stepping stone to learn how to enchant or inscribe his Black Keys with magic attributes. Black Keys:
Are charms used by agents of the Church to repel demons. They take the form of long rapier-like swords (although they are generally thrown as a dagger or used to stab opponents). They are considered to be symbolic and have weak attack power, but its attack power is still enough to pierce through concrete walls. The amount of skill required to properly wield them causes the Black Keys not to be used often. They excel at interfering with and damaging spiritual phenomena rather than damaging them physically. The effect on beings like Servants is minimal but they are very effective against the creatures that are being hunted down by the Church, like the Dead Apostles. If they hit the shadow of a target, the target will be unable to move their body, leaving them to the mercy of the black key's wielder. It could also be used to track down and seal or injure a target until its wielder tells it to stop doing so, or unless it is destroyed or neutralized by an outside force. Expert Executors are capable of materializing the blades by passing prana through an object, such as pages of a bible, allowing them to carry and conceal hundreds of hilts at a time. This practice falls category of sacraments rather than thaumaturgy. - http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Church#ExecutorsBaptism Sacrament:
Purification Incantations. The sole mystery that is freely taught to all members of the Church. A simple ritual with an aria that falls on the Ten-Count category, it is capable of exorcising Demons and sending Wraiths back to the world of the dead. Possess weak capacities of physical interference, but its power is overwhelming against spiritual bodies. Ineffective against spirits on the level of Servants though.Cremation Sacrament:
A spell sigil engraved in the Black Keys that makes them burn once they pierce the target. Since it is originated from the "heretical" Thaumaturgy, not many Executors can use this. Dokhma Sacrament:
A spell sigil engraved in the Black Keys that makes them dehydrate the target once hit by the blades. Interment Sacrament:
A spell sigil engraved in the Black Keys that causes petrifaction of the target once hit by the blades. Jhator Sacrament:
A spell sigil engraved in the Black Keys that call forth crows to devour the target that was pierced by the blades. - http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Magic_Spells
