Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 02/17/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. They have come to learn more about the state of Japan, the Shogunate, and it's Scions. We will be having a Lunar New Year's celebration, a school dance, and a combat tournament with them!

APPEARANCE

HAIR: Brown, short and loosely styled.
EYES: Blue.

STYLE: Wears a steampunk inspired outfit on his off days. White long-sleeve button up shirt, black vest with a black (varies) tie. Black pants with a matching black belt. Has a black overcoat with spiraling gold patterns on the outside that are vaguely shaped like gears. He has a pair of black boots with several buckles, and metal embedded in the sole. He occasionally carries a black cane with a silver handle and base made of iron. It is obviously more for looks than use. A pair of dark goggles surrounded by brass and leather act as a pair of sunglasses for him, as well as eye protection while in the forage. Finally to top it all off, he wears a top hat with a few brass gears on it.
OTHER: Has a set of interlocked gears on his arm that vary in color from gear to gear. Black, gold, silver, and brass. The tattoo shines due to actual metal being used in the ink.
TRAITS

Very outspoken about any problems he has with others, causes fights quite often due to his plain and open way of speaking. Otherwise he is a well spoken gentleman. He personally has quite a bit of money, allowing him to buy things that he requires or desires easily.


STRENGTHS: Extremely adept at using relic powers (swift manipulations, doesn't tire easily while using abilities), Can keep a solid footing in unstable terrain. Can identify metals very easily. Excessive iron in his blood (Hemochromatosis)

COMBAT



WEAPON: Six ornate Philadelphia Derringer pistols. They are one shot percussion cap guns. They are gold and silver plated and held in a harness under his overcoat and above his vest. 3 on one side, 3 on the other, designed to be cross drawn (Left guns drawn by right hand, vice versa). Due to the percussion cap, these guns are not re-loadable in thread, and are a last resort weapon.
RELIC: Odd scroll locked inside of an iron scroll container.
RELIC OWNER: Katō Danzō
OWNER HISTORY: A prominent ninja master who's history is surrounded by mystery. He was rumored to have been trained in sorcery and was supposedly able to fly. (Thus the nickname Flying Kato). He was tasked by Usegi, Kenshin with stealing a sword from a retainer of Kenshin's, and not only stole the sword, but also captured a servant girl as well. After a series of events, Kenshin and his rival Takeda, Shingen eventually thought he was acting as a double agent. He was captured and beheaded.
ACTIVATED ABILITY 1: River of Steel - Pulls 1 cubic foot of metal filings from any local source within his range. Metal filings must be magnetic material and must not come form a weapon or projectile that is still in opponent control, and may never come from an opponent's relic.
ACTIVATED ABILITY 2: Superheat - Can heat up metal that is under his magnetic control. The metal becomes red hot for 2 posts. Enemy relics, armor, and weapons are invalid targets for this ability. Already launched projectiles are valid.
LOCKED ACTIVATED ABILITY 3: No Medic Required - Able to use the iron in his blood to create a patch to stop even the most traumatic bleeding. Likewise can use the iron in another person's blood to stop their bleeding (must be able to touch them). This patch stays even after the ability is finished, and patches must be removed manually, else they stay in place.
PASSIVE 1: Magnetic Personality - Possess an extremely strong magnetic field around him. Can manipulate any naturally magnetic object around him, up to 10 feet away. The weight and density of the object effects the ability to manipulate it, meaning he can't float, bend, or move around a 400 pound object with as much ease or as swift as a soda can. Enemy Relics, armor, and weapons are an invalid targets for this ability. Already launched projectiles are valid.
LOCKED PASSIVE 2: Metal Manipulation - Can solidify metal (including liquid metals and metal filings (particles)) into various weapons and shapes. Likewise any material solidified in this way can be turned back into it's original source material.
LOCKED AWAKENED MODE COLOR: Silver
LOCKED
AWAKENED ATTACK: Iron Maiden - Magnetic field increases in power and range. All sources of iron within 100 feet (in the ground, buildings, dead bodies, etc) of Koi immediately begin shedding filings and rocket towards him. They form into a large ocean of metal sand underneath him and spread out in a circle around him that is as deep as 5 inches. The more sources available, the larger the radius. Anyone except himself and allies within the circle are then targeted by a 'living sand' that tries to spear them with spikes that solidify out of the sand around opponents. if a spike manages to make contact with an opponent, it wraps around enemies and attempts to completely cover them in a metal coffin. If passive 2 is available, the user may choose to encase themselves as well as a defense mechanism. Lasts 3 posts, any coffins made stay solid after the attack ends.
HISTORY


FAMILY: (If you have faceclaims in mind please note them.)
• Imaizumi, Amur (Father, Mine retainer for Matsuda Clan)
• Imaizumi, Iwame (Mother, Accountant for retainer company. Direct employ of the Matsuda clan)

BACKGROUND: Koi grew up in the mines of the Matsuda clan, though is not part of their clan. He was born to a family who owned several mines on behalf of the Matsuda clan, and were considered almost like family to the Matsuda. They mined everything from precious gems to coal across the province, and even though the Matsuda clan got the primary amount of money that was generated by the mines, his family was quite well off, enough to buy jewelry, nice clothing, and other wealthy family doo-dads and knick-knacks, weapons, and anything else he may desire.

While growing up, he was known for exploring the various caves and mines around his city. Those who saw him swiftly and easily making his way through piles of rubble and unstable grounds would describe it 'as if he were swimming through the mountain', along with his name, Koi, he became known quickly as the Iron Fish by miners in the area, and soon by his family. He soon fell ill, and had to slow down just a bit, exploring just as swiftly, though in smaller bursts.

As he grew older, his skin turned a silvery color, and a Matsuda doctor finally diagnosed him with Hemochromatitis, an overabundance of iron in his blood. Small metal flecks began to stick to him, seemingly by magnetic means as his relic powers awakened. He was shortly after floating soda cans, forks, and other pieces of metal around him with ease, also finding that with some focus he could bend them and change their shapes into interesting works art. He boiled down several sets of forks, which his mother scolded him for, and used his powers to move the softened metal around and mold it into a sculpture, crude as it was.

Soon his powers were well under control, effortlessly creating works of art, weapons, anything he wanted really. This gained the attention of the Bugei Academy, who extended a welcome to him and soon took him from his family and mines that he loved so much. He continued to make things with his metal editing abilities while waiting for his first year to begin, and one day in the blacksmithing club's area, he overheard a conversation that the Shogunate was planning on taking private mines away from people to use for their own financial gain, this set him on his political track, taking an active stance that mines will remain in the family's hands. So begins his first year.

Well, you said you wanted me to go over and point out all the issues I had with your profile so here goes mate.

1. Strengths and weaknesses need to be the same number.

2. Please explain in history how you got six foreign guns.

3. Activate 1s are quick, short spells. that is why they have only a one turn cooldown. So no.

4. Act 3. So you are stripping iron from their blood and focusing it all in one place? wouldn't that kill them?

5. Passive 1, 15 feet is pretty large range for that.

6. Your awakened lasts a really long time. That would shred your body to pieces. Awakening are 2-3 turns and then you pass out.

7. Please describe your family members more. You just have two names. That says nothing.

Groovy concept though.

1. He has 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses. The ()'s are describing the strength or weakness.

2. Placed information about his considerable wealth in his traits. Previously was only in paragraph one of his background.

3. Activated one now pulls from local sources instead of producing it.

4. It is to be understood that this would be used in the event of someone possibly bleeding to death, and would require hospitalization soon anyway. The side effect of temporary low iron in the blood would be the inabilty to create new red blood cells efficiently, but the trade off is immediate stopping of blood loss.

5. Passive 1 is now 10 feet.

6. New ultimate that acts quicker and will only last up to 3 posts.

7. Expanded on the familiy member roles in the Retainer company as well as labeled mother and father (which I somehow missed)

1. just move the metal in your blood from a strength to traits.

2. In your history it would have been less of a warm invite and more like monks showing up shortly after you awakened and going "you need to come to edo, under orders from the Shogunate".

3. Your history doesn't really make it clear about how much time passed since when you awakened to when you got your invite to Edo Bugei.

4. Please add cooldown times to your powers.

5. I still feel like the passive 1 is far too OP. We are talking about 400 pounds of melal easily around you. That means lugging 400 pounds of metal at someone like its not a big deal.

6. What do your parents look like?

7. Your awakened says where it draws metal from but not how large the circle it creates is. Also, the coffins can't stay in place after your awakened ends. They would have to melt away.

8. In your awakened your meant "rounds" not "posts."

The profile is getting better though, and I am liking the powers.
