...Hell, why not!
Servant – Chloe, the True Noir
Master – Tomoe HanauchiSelect Your Servant:
Chloe is from the anime called Noir. She serves the criminal syndicate called Les Soldats as one of their most elite assassins. She was raised by a high ranking Soldats member named Altena, for the explicit purpose of eventually assuming the role of Noir, a mytho-historical duo of cultist assassins. For most of her life, she's been completely loyal to Altena, even at the expense of the rest of the syndicate. For her, the role of Noir is more than just a birthright or a destiny: it is her life's definition, and her heart's most ardent wish.Select Your Servant's Powers:
Mystic Eyes of Death Perception (直死の魔眼 Chokushi no Magan) as Shiki Tohno from Tsukihime. Chloe is able to see points and fault lines that allow her to kill or break anything she can conceptualize the destruction of. She is constantly surrounded by these fault-lines, and even being a bit psychotic herself, she sometimes needs to wear specially crafted lenses to keep herself sane.Appearance/Style Description:
Chloe has narrow eyes and magenta hair, typically wearing a green cape and a dark, skin tight outfit underneath it. She is of modest proportions, thin and muscular, prizing grace and precision over all other physical virtues. She is mellow, and even when she is serious about something tends to remain composed and soft-spoken.Personality:
Chloe is a beautiful blend of contradictions, mellow enough to exist in the same body all at once. She is quiet, soft-spoken, and polite, even while being arrogant and self-assured. She is honorable, insightful, and something of a romantic, despite being a ruthless, expert murderer. Chloe at times comes off as child like, almost innocent, hiding her brilliance and keen attention to her surroundings. Something bubbly seems to exist just behind her narrow eyes: a kind of happiness and peace. She finds beauty in her work, in her keepsakes, and in the few relationships she maintains. All of this is only a scowl away from the proud, jealous and deceptive assassin she can really be. To her, all of these things are simply part of upholding the mantle of the True Noir.Master - History:
Tomoe chose Chloe for a servant because she wanted someone who was bubbly, optimistic, and powerful, without making it so she'd eventually grow sick of them. When the game started, Tomoe has been working hard in the game equivalent of a Thief Class, increasing her dagger skills with help from her servant. However, while Chloe respects her ability and likes the fact that she is making progress, her servant is also a realist. Tomoe is much more efficient in medium armor, with a buckler and morning-star. Tomoe was hoping that eventually her servant would come to see her as the other half of the Noir Legend, but Chloe doesn't really think she has the stuff for it.
However, this doesn't mean they don't work well together. Tomoe loves working with vegetables and flowers, something that Chloe has an unexpected fascination with, and that Tomoe actually knows more about. At their home, the two teach one another their respective skills while gathering up herbs, foods and flowers from their orchard to sell on market, or to cook between themselves. Their relaxing days at their home are spent reading, cooking, building additions, and generally enjoying one another's company. Both are laid-back, serious, or bubbly in equal measure, and despite the odd disagreement, both of them are fond of one another.
The choice to become a mercenary was only partly Chloe's. Tomoe was in a guild for a little while, before she got sick of them. Chloe is proud, and wants to be part of something that serves that esteem. This guild, with infighting and incompetent (see: fatal) boss raid planning, was anything but. She still has a few contacts from those days, that feed her information in exchange for backup. Chloe's unique abilities allow her to access secret portions of levels and disable entire limbs from boss monsters, making her a desirable, if expensive, travelling companion. When Tomow realized she could do better without a guild for the time being, she quit it, and since then life has been good.
Tomoe enjoys this place, and has settled into a mood where she no longer worries about beating the game. Becoming a renowned mercenary allows her to make the money she needs to expand her orchard and keep herself current with the levels. She likes to invite people to her cottage, and tends to be an excellent hostess. Tomoe is known to be the goofier of the two, a trait that Chloe finds endearing, and that her guests and contractors seem to take comfort from. Current Situation:
Chloe and her master act as mercenaries. They don't often push the front lines, preferring instead to take assignments within the world and live out their days making a name for themselves. They have a cottage on Floor 18, set in an idyllic orchard, where they grow flowers and fruits in their free time, as well as training themselves. This is also the place where they can be hired, although sometimes people question whether or not these are really the killers that call themselves The True Noir. Chloe tends to enjoy farm work for some reason, noting that it feels nostalgic and simple, even meditative. Servant - Weapons:
While an expert with fire-arms, Chloe prefers to use throwing knives, and keeps a massive amount of them under her cape. She also carries some specialty lenses that block the Mystic Eyes Ability. Beyond this, and her kevlar under armor, she carries no other weapons.
.Servant - Special Powers:
Chloe has been trained her entire life as an elite assassin. A genius killer, her agility, aim, and awareness are all frighteningly close to becoming super-human. Added to this is her ability to somehow cut and break anything she sets her mind to destroying. Despite all of this, however, Chloe remains an otherwise normal human.Servant - Strengths:
Eye of the Hurricane: Chloe is unnaturally hard to phase. Except where it comes to Noir itself, Chloe is strangely able to keep a disarming composure.
Fill your hands: She's been trained since birth to kill, and Altena went to great lengths in her training. Especially with weapons. If it's a weapon invented before 2015 CE, Chloe knows how to use it.
Dance Upon The Moonlight: Chloe's agility will always be her largest strength. Parkour is simply second nature, and she is able to use terrain and obstacles to get around in ways that would force Ezio into retirement.
Friendly: What most people don't expect about Chloe is that she's generally likable, unexpectedly principled, and even a fluid conversationalist. Where she isn't making bodies, she tends to make friendships. Not all of them last, but such is life.
Loyal: The friendships that do last, however, are things that Chloe will treasure. Once you've earned her loyalty, you either have a friend for life, or a knife wielding time-bomb that will murder your face if you betray her.Servant - Weaknesses:
Obsessive: Chloe's greatest source of strength is also her greatest source of flaws. She is obsessed with Noir, with maintaining the image, actions, and philosophy of her birthright. She tends to obsess about other things as well. Those that know how to play this against her may find that she is more fragile, and more easy to manipulate, than they thought.
Madness Scrawled in the Lines: Chloe's power to cut anything comes at a price. She will go mad if she doesn't have a break from looking at the lines every now and again. The lenses she has that hide the lines are among her most important possessions. Without it, she will eventually have to blindfold herself or risk her sanity.
Ordinary Human: Chloe is exceptionally skilled, hard to hit, and even harder to catch coming. But she's a normal human. No regeneration, lasers, or cybernetics at all.
Limited Ammo: Chloe carries 30 knives on her. She often has to retrieve them after combat, or get new ones made. Once she's out of ammo, she has to improvise.
(..So many ideas. I'll throw this one at the wall and see if it sticks.)
