Re: Character List
Race: Modified human, Summoner
Hair: Long, dark blue, almost black. Has a purple streak down the left side.The purple hair is also laced with metal and wooden beads. They seem slightly old and worn out.
Eye color: Metallic Black irises, often appear gray or white due to the fact that they're highly reflective.
Weapon(s): He uses a simple staff, metal construction with a sharp metal base. The headpiece is a bit strange however. It's in the shape of a strange bird's head with a sharp metal demon wing shaped blade extending from the back of it. The bids beak is open and in it is a rather large black gem. Turned backward this weapon much resembles a scythe. He also has the ability to 'hide' this item, so to speak and summon it at any time. However, he prefers to keep it with him. Using it as a walking stick.
He can also summon a book, which contains various basic magic skills and summons. However he can only use the magic skills inside the book while carrying it, and it tends to be mildly useless. As such, it is more of a situational item than anything.
Strengths: He has the ability to summon various monsters, large and small. However, depending on the size the time to do so varies. He has a small carbuncle-like creature on his head almost all the time, and it can cast a limited reflect spell for a short time, one for physical and one for mental attacks. However, this can only be used occasionally. He is also very skilled with his weapon and using it to parry, etc. His preference is defense over attack, so when he makes an attack it will be well thought out, and most likely an attempt to kill if it connects right.
Weaknesses: He's not excessively strong, he can be beaten in most weapon locks. He also can't take much damage, and relies mainly on speed to avoid such things. His summons also take time and leave him rather vulnerable. And his magic is practically useless in battle situations, due to the fact that it's slow and weak. Overall he relies on his weaker summons when he's in battle alone. However, he is capable of handling himself fairly in melee combat. Though he will rarely make an attack, making the possibility of tiring very real. He is also very protective of the little creature on his head. Though this doesn't change a lot since it's on his head, after all. Also, when charged well his minor magic spells can tire him fairly easily.
Skills/Magic: Summoning, he is capable of summoning any sort of creature that has made a pact with his ancestors or himself. He is also capable of forming his own pacts, though this is extremely rare. Currently these pacts range from magic foxes/cats and smaller to giant dragons/golems. He is also capable of casting minor magic spells, that's about it. The summons have their own individual abilities, however. Also, each minor magic spell can be canceled/defended against with the opposing element, or a metal item? However if he has sufficient time to charge the spell it will take one of the opposite element. Gravity, however, will have to be canceled by stopping him from finishing the spell. (Which isn't difficult, as he can barely move while casting without breaking concentration. The same applies for summons.)
Minor magic spells: Lightning, Fire, Ice, Wind, Gravity, and healing. Each one is as it's name implies. Fire is a small fireball, Ice is a small spear made of ice that shoots forward. Wind is a small, fairly small and concentrated gust of wind. And lighting uses the static electricity in the air and groups it up into a stronger bolt. Gravity increases or reduces the gravity to various levels, each one taking more time then the last. (Starting at 20 seconds and going up to a minute.) Heal can heal small wounds in a short time and fairly large gashes over a longer period. However, all of these can only be used with his magic book and have to be read each time.
Appearance: He wears a black leather cloak at almost all times. Under it he wears slightly baggy black denim pants and a black, fore-fitting muscle shirt-like top. On his feet he wears black hiking style boots, with metal parts on the bottom and plates on the top so they can be used to block. They also make a bit of a clinking sound as he walks, however.
His facial features are that of a bit of a pretty boy, so to speak, though not weak. They are rather soft and usually his expression is rather plain. His hair is usually down over his right eye, as it tends to fall back whenever he flips it out of the way. He also has a small black horn sticking out of his upper forehead. It's a bit hard to see, but looking closely, even from a bit of a distance, it's possible to notice it.
Bastien also has a small Carbuncle, like creature that seems to remain on his head at almost all times. It's small, about the size of a slightly large house cat, and it's body form seems to fit that of a bunny, however, it's features are a bit more cat-like. For instance it has claws, and it's face is shaped more like a cat. It also has a bit of hair, shaped like spines that stick up on the back of it's head. It's coloring is different then that of the normal carbuncle. It's back, and it's tail, ears and paws all have purple tips, that fade back to black about half way down these appendages. It also has faintly-glowing red eyes.
Personality: His social skills are awful, to say the least. They are made even worse by his inability to speak, so he generally keeps to himself. As such he appears rather cold at first. However, when he gets close to people he is genuinely caring and loyal. He's not afraid to die for even someone he has only known for a short time depending on how he takes to said person. Death in general, however, isn't much of a concern to him. He is also a bit hesitant with relationships and such as he's been left for his inability to speak.
Bio: Bastien's story is a rather simple one. He lived a normal life with his parents in a village of summoners until he was thirteen. (Or, as normal as it gets when you can't speak.) This was the age where all young summoners were sent off to learn their abilities. They also grew their summoning horn at this age, however... Bastien's grew in a bit odd, not only was it black, it was... rather small.
Despite his oddity, Bastien went on to become and average student where he was taught. However, one thing was a bit odd. The first time he tried to perform a summon he was capable of summoning a much higher level monster then was expected. Unfortunately, it wouldn't go away. It was a small carbuncle-like creature, however, it was black, with purple tipped ears and a purple tipped tail. It also was lacking the gem on it's forehead. It's eye seemed to glow red, as well.
However, despite the creature's coloring, it still remained rather cute, during the day at least. It was rather popular with the girls as well, making a few of the other male students a bit jealous. However, this never really caused any problems. Aside from this incident he graduated like any other student, going through his fair share of relationships. Though nothing really noteworthy. However, there were a few that left him due to his inability to speak.
After graduating he spent about a year back with his family, as most from his clan did, and has now left home, though is unsure of what he should do next.
