I apologize in advance for any Ragnarok fans. Character designs are fantastic to me. Ignore the lady in the background... but I may use her to piece together his background story, since this pic as a whole is the inspiration for my character.
Elzam - Elzabriam is his true name of demonic nature, given by his demon father (a metal demon), a name of which he hides. Elzam is the name given by his late mother, a witch. Being half breed, I want him to be naturally magically attuned, able to channel his spiritual energies easier and faster than a normal human male, to be able to charge his body to be as hard as steel, and have high proficiency in the art of illusion. He will not be able to learn magic or have the same abilities of a witch, since only human women in this world can have them.
He will be a travelling wanderer of the world, on a search of a reason personal to him, under the guise of a street entertainer with considerable martial unarmed skill. His incredibly fit body and demonic bloodline are his weapons. As the story progresses, he will discover more about his demonic bloodline and eventually learn new abilities that he can channel his spiritual energies into e.g. increased strength.
Dare I go so far as a theme song?: Sengoku BASARA 3 OSTS - 4 - Ieyasu Tokugawa Theme.
(Tokugawa Ieyasu's Theme, Sengoku Basara 3 OST. Original song is in japanese characters, so I dont know the english name. Song also inspired the creation of this character.)
An updated version of my character concept, after taking a gander at what DK has posted recently. Im too much on a roll here...
