Here is my candidate for the Dean/Overlord. Hopefully Pendarious doesn't mind me using the name he picked. Work in progress but do tell me what you think so far.Name:
Himeijii Minoru (The Vassal of Oblivion) Nickname:
OverlordAbilities: Void Lightning:
The Vassal of Oblivion has a deep understanding of dark sorcery especially within the influence of destructive force and one of his signature forms of attack and defense is the embodiment of his wrath in the form of corrupted lightning empowered by his essence. With it his primary mode of attacking is in the form of magical arcs that strike down his enemies. Another variation are binding chains of a lightning that restrict and hamper his enemy to try and slow them down. And finally one of his favorite tactics is to use the Void Lightning in an explosive burst effect electrifying those unfortunate to be caught within its path. For defense a sphere of electricity to surround himself in that counter strikes against those that try to breach it is a preferred tactic. Again it is another form of torture he utilizes against his victims by using small shocks to stimulate the nerves of his opponents inflicting either pain or pleasure at his whim.Veil of Nightmare:
The Vassal of Oblivion has a dreaded power to bring a person's greatest fear to reality in whatever suitable fashion that can harass the victim the best. The vision has no true manifestation until a target is designated however the illusion is quite real taking the form of a hostile manifestation. The nightmare will then attempt to attack or harass the target and drain it of its sexual or physical energy if they incapacitate the target. A strong willed being can shake off the fearful effects and defeat the manifestation. However this is a favored tactic of torture for the Overlord.Mark of the Void:
The Vassal has the ability to lay a mark upon a willing subject binding them to his will. It is in this way he can control his subjects with a stern hand. For it is a constant reminder they are never far enough from their Master that he cannot touch them. He can channel his will through them in a form of focused telepathy and also see and hear through their eyes by committing a small portion of essence towards the act for it to work. Conjuration:
Those who bear the Mark are forever bound to heed the call of their Master. And when the Master has need of them they know of it. For the Mark can summon them to his side. However this is only if they are willing to be summoned. Those that do refuse the summon however better have a good reason to do that for he has little tolerance for those who refuse to heed his call. Often what he uses the summons for is to give out missions for it is rare that he has to find himself in direct conflict and rarer still where he needs backup. But when he does he can summon a number of monsters to his side. (GM's discretion)Flawless False Form:
The Overlord has uncanny powers at his disposal for disguise. There a reason he has not be discovered so easily by the magical girls or the organization that opposes MAWD. His abilities of disguise go beyond any other monster. Even Posers cannot hope to mimic this. They go merely to the physical form and that is all however he can fabricate a false soul or spiritual energy with the disguise masking his true nature. Ergo there is no magic button or such that will allow those to pierce his disguise. Only logic and cunning will allow for such a feat.Dimension Door:
The Vassal has an impressive means of transportation by splitting the fabric of reality asunder for a brief moment to allow him to travel many miles from one place to another. He can use it to also travel between his realm and the realm of humans. It is his primary means of transportation and it is a powerful one at that. The Dimension Door will not close until after he enters the threshold. So it is possible for others to travel through it so long as he is the last one to pass through the rift.Personality:
The Dean Himeijii Minoru is a rather kind man concerned for his students well being first and foremost with a slight tendency to enjoy a ladies body for what it is even if it is hands off. As such he is usually on the wrong end of a few good slaps or bumps on the head from those who reel in his wandering eyes. None the less he is a good listener and quite wise, willing to give good advice to those who wish to hear of it and compassionate towards others at the cost of his own personal wants.
The Vassal of Oblivion's personality is one of cruelty, a person who shows no mercy to those who dare to get in way and whilst willing to give second chances to his minions but should his patience wear thin enough he will make no hesitation to remove it. He values those with loyalty over ones success rate because loyal underlings are hard to come by and are scant resources in his organization. His cruel nature is matched by his perverse eye for he has a deep appetite for the fair sex's flesh and often uses sins of lust to break his prisoners and bring them to his side rather then torture. It is far more entertaining in this fashion and also has less of a chance of killing the victim of course. Tis far more mentally taxing as well in his viewpoint as well. His will for the planet under his control is to use it as a monsters paradise where humanity is subservient to the monsters and used for whatever enjoyment they see fit.Human FormMonster FormA Potential "Dragon"
