Dende is a wielder of Nature Anima, a form of Anima that focuses on the powers of Earth and the body. There are many branches and sub-branches to Nature Anime, and Dende specializes in plant animation and body control.
Dende is most experienced in plant animation, and she studies in the branch of plant animation, or Anima dealing with plants, and in the sub-branch of growing and controlling plants. Dende can summon combat plants, such as Man Eaters and Poison Roses, and use them against her enemy. She knows a plethora of summoning plant spells, and they are quite useful for both attack and defense. The only requirement for plant growth is a soil for it to grow in and a large outpour of Anima as a life source.
Dende also studies the branch of body control, and in the sub-branches of internal flow control (also known as cell control III) and repair system control. Internal flow control deals with the flow of fluids in the body, like blood, urine, and even foreign invaders like viruses and sperm. It also deals with production and reproduction of certain cells (cell reproduction is a branch of its own, but it is also separated throughout the other cell sub branches). Dende can control where cells go, how fast they move and their reproduction rate. This branch is very useful for fighting diseases and for medical treatment. Dende can also use this power in sexual interactions, where she can cause herself to release multiple mature egg cells at a time, can make a man have an artificial erection by controlling the flow of blood into it, and even control a man’s sperm production rate. She can also use this power to speed up the pace of reproduction, where she can fasten the pace of the sperm traveling through her, and also quicken the rate at which the fertilized egg becomes an embryo, allowing her to become pregnant in a matter of minutes.
The second sub-branch that Dende has learned is the repair system control. The repair system control allows Dende to heal herself or others through the control of the immune and repair system of the body. If someone has been poisoned or has fallen ill to a disease, Dende can use her power to cure them. Dende can also heal cuts, broken bones, and even limbs (this requires a lot of time to execute, and is very hard to pull off. A lot of life force is used in this process, and Dende can only use it once a day. At Dende’s current level, she can only heal lost hands or feet, not entire limbs).
Dende can only use her powers in body control if she has contact with the patient, and she can only focus on one area of the body at a time.
Dende’s origins originate thousands of years ago, when Anima first started to come in existence. Elves, at the time, only lived in forests with wild life and plants, and already knew much about the Earth and its surroundings. With the introduction of Anima, they used their knowledge of the Earth and its living creatures to develop magical powers that helped them understand the world around them even further, and to finally take control of their surroundings. Of course, the elves thought that without nature, they would not survive, so they only used their powers to help others.
Eventually, as the knowledge of Anima grew, so did the tree of spells discovered. A group of elf philosophers, all female, discovered the first combat magic of the elf race. These powers were outlawed when proposed to the government at the time, since it would only lead to destruction. The philosophers did not take this very well, and thus started a “race” of their own. The Guargans.
The Guargans were a lot like the Amazons, a group of female only elves that use combat magic to survive. But of course, they used their powers for good, since they WERE made up of a peaceful race. The group only consisted of ten to fifteen elves at a time, since only the most talented were chosen to join. None of the members were allowed to have children, and only infants that had a large potential power were able to join. And they were usually taken away from their families once found.
One of the mages in the Guargans was Dende’s mother, a beautiful young elf that originated from a royal bloodline. She had great power and control over Anima, but she was passionate and emotional, something that concerned her Guargan brethren greatly. She was also young and naive, and her emotional personality sometimes got in the way of her duties.
She was also a little of a rebel, not agreeing with the Guargan’s rules. She had fallen in love with a handsome elf male, who was also powerful in the ways of the Anima. She fell pregnant, but it was only during her second trimester that the Guargans found out of her treachery. She was banished from the group, and since her lover was a thing of the past, had nowhere to go.
Eventually, Dende was born, and her mother decided to raise her just as the Guargans raised their young, only in a more motherly way. Dende had very good genes, and was a natural talent since birth. She had great powers resting in her, and her mother wanted to exploit them to their fullest, so Dende could be the best there was.
Dende spend most of her time reading ancient conscripts and researching plant and humanoid systems, and developed the potential to learn plant and body animation. Dende was nature loving, and she has learned to grow living plants to fight by her side and control the bodies’ physics, and became both a healer and a fighter.
Eventually, Dende had to break off from her mother to explore the world, and gather wisdom to further increase her knowledge of the world and eventually, master her powers. She has become very fascinated in largely populated places, like kingdoms, instead of her origins back in the forests. Dende has traveled from kingdom to kingdom, making a living for herself by healing the sick and helping those in need, and has become quite wealthy. But she has become quite lonely, and has decided that she wants an apprentice. It has come to her mind that she would have a child of her own, and raises him to be even more successful than her. So she now drives to find a man, to impregnate her and if she is lucky, spend the rest of her life with.
