Kurimuzongādian (Or Kuri for short) Aliases:
More In-depth KnowledgeAppearance: Height: Human:
Usually borderline eight feet in height, but can raise himself to ten to twelve feet to intimidate his foes. If he were to stretch out, from tip of tail to head he would most likely be a good thirty-two(or so) feet long. Weight:Human:
115 pounds Oni:
Several tons of muscle. Hair Color:
Whether through general scare tactics, twisted persuasion, or something other. Kuri usually has a way of getting people to do what he wants.
They say knowledge is power, the more of it the more well off someone may be. Kuri holds similar values to the Oni that took over Japan; although for Kuri, his knowledge expands further. He has made it a habit to know about other Oni, their general habits, their weaknesses; he may not be familiar with every one of them, but that won't stop him from expanding. Naturally his influence of information lingers to many Oni from Japanese mythology. This doesn't stop its expansion as he will still research other potential advertises he may come across.
Only in a sense that his aging is much slower than that of the typical lifespan of humans. Despite his youthful appearances, with the former mention of vast knowledge to creatures from his natural habitat and way he sometimes carries himself, he is far older than that of any typical teenager.Weaknesses:
He is far from a warrior, in his true form he often relies on the use of his powers, intellect, and surroundings. In his human form, well he is more helpless.
The opposite of elements he is highly regarded for, it is only natural for him to feel less at ease in colder terrain. It is to a point that he even tries to avoid being in his Oni form, usually hibernating in his human skin during the more winter seasons of the year.
He strongly despises anything relating to large birds, foxes, boars, racoons, coyotes, and mongooses; be they of the natural animals or Oni with resembling features. Because of this, he is often quite prejudice to them as a whole. Powers: Camouflage Sealing:
Unlike many Oni of his species, he has begun to apply the use of Holy to intentionally weaken himself. As a result, his human forms are meek, weak, and extremely fragile; however, at the cost of such his monstrous attributes are completely sealed and shrouded(even from those with detectable abilities.) Naturally he also loses nearly all his magical capabilities as well, and those that may even been once hypnotized by him will find the effects gradually vanishing. This is a technique he has practiced and perfected to blend in and stalk his prey; also this is something he has used to lure foolish individuals into a trap and to also avoid those that may hunt him. The downfall to this is that it takes time to properly seal his powers as he is sealing every capable magic power of his in doing so. The more powers, the longer it takes. With this power as a factor it takes him a total of six hours to fully seal his power, every passing hour will lessen the radius in which he can be found. He can instantaneous release all seals at any given time.Poison:
Like all serpents he can control how potent it is, either to paralysis effect or fatal. Though most don’t have to concern themselves in being ‘bitten’ by him. Mass Hypnosis:
More effective upon the weaker minded or willed humans and those consumed by his charming eyes often find themselves enslaved by him. Of course such effects aren’t permanent, the brainwashing can easily be severe at his own demise, his choice releasing the victims from his web, or if the intended targets are capable of escaping his area of influence for an extended period of time(days.) Side effects on the targets can also lead to amnesia, for better or for worse for their encounters with him and keeping his own existence as secretive as possible. This power still has an ability to dominate lesser Oni and most humans if their wills or minds waver within his company while gazing in his eyes.Fire Immunity/Manipulation/Elemental Control:
The use of fire is highly ineffective against him, and if the fire is imbued with something else, only that may have any effect on him. Raw fire itself only empowers him, he can manipulate it, shape it, and use it to his will. Beyond that he can generally summon his own flames and is often revere as a powerful .Strength:
Perhaps his deadliest of natural abilities(second to his control over fire) is the power and damage he can inflict with his body. His massive, serpent’s lower abdomen has captured and crushed many fellow monsters that had entered his territory unwelcome; even should they avoid such a grasp, they still have to deal with a flailing appendage of sheer bulky, flexible muscle, whipping mercilessly at them. He isn’t necessary weak in his upper abdomen either, still his lower body has enough power in it to break down trees, smash through brick walls, and even dent harder components of metal. It wouldn’t come off much of a surprise if he could easily whip a moving vehicle out of his path, without being phased.Healing:
Fire is life, fire is breath, fire is energy. To wield fire is to empower him and to empower him is to heal him. He cannot be healed by the self flames he generates though, only other sources of magic or natural fire will cure him of injuries. History:
Kuri has survived for centuries; although he did not grow up in the former human world, before many Oni made their living in the alternative, mirror like realm that most mortals had been blinded too. Instead, most of his living was within the Oni world; a place equally vast to the point where few may ever scratch the surface of knowledge with the different breeds of Oni who may hail from different mythological backgrounds. He spent most of his time surviving and feasting his awareness towards the different Oni of Japanese culture. He did not live a life of luxury back in those days and what living he made was often at an old shrine that a more peaceful village had made. Probably this was where his name was later birth as in the past, he never thought of an alias to go by. With the many decades that followed, most of his living was peaceful, a simple means of territorial service to the village. He paid them in protection, they accommodated his other needs.
Inevitably news and the rounding up of how quickly the mortal realm was expanding would reach even such a quiet village. Kuri could of cared less either way; although the promises of a much better life was just as tempting. Abandoning the village, he decided to see what the other world had to offer. The destructive force of humanity was indeed a potential danger and threat and he was one of those that was skeptical to the inevitable Oni leader to the country of Japan. Lives were taken, but for Kuri, that was only second nature; in the Oni world he had did similar to many that were dangers or threats to the village but that was simple common courtesy to the relation he had with the villagers at that time. In truth, he would see nothing to gain from continuous direct confrontations and thus begun putting his powers to better use in hypnotizing and controlling his enemies.
Regardless, the end was still a bloody chapter to his history and he had expected to live a better life afterward with the subjugation of the humans. This changed with the decree that Oni and Humans should try to co-exist later in Japan. Kuri was also one of the ones that was later forced to attend schooling given his 'youthful' age. It was insanity to him, something he had avoided for almost a decade being shoved off on him. His time at the Academy has been short, though two years can just as easily be shrugged off by one that has such a longevity of lifespan as him. His attitude has been a mix of good and bad following those former two years there and he has been responsible for several underhanded incidents. Unlike other students, his stay is more of a game on his end. He is merely entertaining the pursuit of knowledge to a better preferred life while making sport of the various students and teachers within the Academy.
