Longsword and Punching DaggerWeapon Description:
Jasmine is somewhat unique in that she has chosen to study the longsword rather than its more powerful and technological advanced gunblade cousin. Her long sword appears rather like a rapier on steroids, for while it does indeed have a bladed edge, the blade itself is decidedly long and narrow. There are a series of spikes build into the base of the blade to make the blade difficult to remove once impaled through someone, although a small switch in the hilt can allow these spikes to be retracted.Specialization:
"You'll get no Eulogy from me..."Limit Break:
SeverityLimit Break Description:
Jasmine whirls her sword in a circle twice, backing away from the enemy, and then dashes forward, leaping upon them and impaling them upon her longsword, driving it through the ground behind them as they fall backwards. Once pinned, the girl pulls her right hand free and, with her punching dagger, punches her helpless opponent several times before grabbing the sword again and, while twisting the hilt, cruelly jerks it free.Personality:
Jasmine has a split personality or, more correctly, she has a second personality which is kept shackled and controlled except in cases where it is needed. In her primary personality, Jasmine is a pacifist and something of a masochist. She tries her best to get along with everyone and has something of a low self-opinion, always considering any failing or conflict to be her fault. She is extremely agreeable and prone to accepting commands.
Her repressed personality is darker. It doesn't speak, doesn't feel mercy, and is very much a sadist. It is released when battle comes and joins into the fray with every ounce of vigor. Still, it is also extremely prone to obedience. Long years of harsh training have taught it the folly of rebellion and, despite many cadets and candidates being slightly uncomfortable with Jasmine's second personality (which is sometimes called 'Reaper,' 'The Beast,' or 'Bitch-mode' although it doesn't seem to respond to any name) there aren't many who actively fear it.Backstory:
Like many cadets, Jasmine is an orphan. Unlike many cadets, Jasmine was extremely poorly devolopped at the time she made it to the Garden. Combative, belligerent, and generally angry, Jasmine would frequently get into fights and would tend to take them beyond the schoolyard tussles that most fights became. The Staff of the Garden tried a lot of things, but little seemed able to cool the rage in Jasmine's heart. Everything that was attempted seemed either ineffective or only served to set Jasmine against the staff itself.
Eventually, one of the staff Psychologists came upon an uneasy solution... a desire to split the anger and malice of Jasmine's personality away from the rest. It took him years to do so, but eventually he succeeded, producing a cadet who, while wearing a set of magnetized manacles, seemed actually incapable of experiencing anger. The perfect student, she got along with everyone and obediently did what she was told. When the manacles came off, the woman became sullen and angry, an arrow screaming towards whatever target she was given. It still took much training to get her to obey commands, but by the time the girl turned thirteen she was an effective, if somewhat broken, cadet.
Unlike the majority of Cadets, Jasmine was given her GF. The staff realized that some of the dumber or more morally questionable cadets might well either take undue advantage of Jasmine's refusal to defend herself or Beast's refusal to stop attacking and needed Nixie to help equalize the forces. The ploy worked... for the most part. While Beast hasn't actually killed anyone and Jasmine hasn't suffered as much as she could have, it does seem that Nixie allows things to pass which the staff would prefer she didn't.GF APPLICATIONName:
Nixie appears as a naked woman with deeply pale blue skin an a small shawl wrapped around her neck, the ends draping down to cover her breasts. Bonus:
Jasmine has slightly enhanced speed and a passive regeneration, slow enough to be a non-factor in actual combat, but fast enough to keep her at her best between fights.Special Attack:
Elemental WardingSpecial Attack Description:
Nixie Appears and clutches her hands before her, closing her eyes. Her shawl slowly begins to unwind and spins in a slight circle, bestowing each of Jasmine's allies, as well as Jasmine herself, with a full-cure and the Regen Affect.
There is little known about Jasmine, but there are a lot of rumors:
- Nixie is sentient and will appear and help protect Jasmine in the event that her welfare is endangered, including releasing the woman's manacles.
- Nixie, being a fey, seems to have a fairly liberal idea of what constitutes Jasmine's welfare being endangered.
- Nixie can be bribed by tuna.
- Jasmine's serrated blade tends to cut through cloth as well as flesh when she strikes, much to the embarrassment of some of her less armored foes.
- There have been students who intentionally released Jasmine's Beast for the purposes of dueling. Most ended up in the infirmary in various stages of undress.
- Jasmine could have become a Candidate several years ago, but keeps refusing to take the SeeD Test.
- Jasmine has a birthmark on her right asscheek.
- Jasmine has a larger than regulation bed, and may share it with Nixie.
