: 2 (Around 14-15 in human years.)
: Vassyr Gargoyle, Copper/Silver hybrid
: Vassyr gargoyles resemble dragons, but usually have another animal feature, like a cat’s paws or a bird’s beak. Some families of Vassyr gargoyle can carry on an animal trait, like a certain bird’s beak or a fish fin or frill. They are either bipedal or quadrupeds, but can change into the opposite freely.
These gargoyles have a hierarchy established in their mountainous city of Cloudbluff. There are three ranks, or kinds, of Vassyr gargoyle; Silver, Iron, and Copper. Silver Vassyr gargoyles are the strongest, and the most revered of the three. Iron Vassyr gargoyles are the second strongest, and more normal in attitude. Copper Vassyr gargoyles are the weakest and are looked on by the other two as lowlifes, never to be respected.
: Muddy yellow around black cat-like slit pupils.
: Biped; 5’,3” (Read as 5 foot, 3 inches) / Quadruped: At shoulder; 3’,3” (3 foot, 3 inches). Including her head; 3’,7” (3 foot, 7 inches)
Prefers to be a quadruped.
: 200 pounds
: Length; 5’,3”
: Length; 3’, 2” (3 feet, 2 inches) Width; 8”, before slowly tapering to a tip. (Eight inches)
: Since she's a gargoyle, she actually has silver blood.
: Her claws, fangs, and tail. Her wing scales can count as well.
: Covered from head to toe in copper scales. Most are hidden under her beige fur
: While in nature, a gargoyle, Amberstone has the appearance of a sort of cross between a lioness and a dragon. Like in the armor section; copper scales everywhere, most hidden under beige fur. Has faint brown spots on her fur, due to she is a cub still. Certain areas show her scales without any fur; from her head down to her stomach area, all four paws, along her spine and tail. Wears a pale brown fabric slung around her hips, which wrap around her tail. Her wings are bat-like and connect near her shoulder blades, with a faint brownish gray, leathery skin in between the four copper scaled 'fingers'.
: Strong due to her weight, and agile to a degree. Can fly well, and can hunt for herself. Her copper/silver scales offer protection from some attacks. Can hold her breath for a while underwater. Knows when to give up in a fight. Due to Omentus, she now has a stronger Life Spark.
Normal: Even though she is has cat eyes, she has trouble seeing well in fog and in the dark. Her weight slows her down in areas, like in sand and mud. Cannot swim.
Elemental Weakness: Is able to be hurt by other sources of electricity. Water also makes her electricity jump around her, and can give her a mild shock. She is not used to her Life Spark either, and can mildly shock herself at random or during a fight.
Currently has the blood of Nesconx in it. Nesconx is a dead god of Chaos, the Void, and Destruction. Blood's color; red and black. Appears to be crumbling cities within the window of the reservoir.
The blood within the reservoir will never empty.
The spider’s body rests on the front of her heart, while the legs wrap around it like a cage, the legs are hooked together in the back. The legs are wrapped around her heart tightly enough to not fall off, but loose enough not to dig into the tissue. The spider looks like a black widow.
The reservoir is in the spider’s body and has an hourglass window on the front of it, where blood is held. There are a set of tubes on the opposite side of the spider, which lead into her heart, having been healed into place by Omentus Anima. The whole spider-like device is silver in color as well as nonmagnetic.
The blood is processed/purified by Amberstone’s Life Spark, and will be introduced into her bloodstream only when she goes through an adrenaline surge, and the conditions match it's failsafe. The effect of the blood, which helps her be less susceptible to diseases and poisons, will stay around for two to three days.
The failsafe is
: It will inject the Nesconx blood into her bloodstream when she is severely injured, low on her Life Spark, and becomes emotional; like becoming angry or very frightened.
Life Spark Amplifiers
An array is one crystal studded ring.
A single array powers up her Life Spark 2.5 times it’s normal power. So, both power up her Life Spark to almost/a little above six times it’s normal strength.
The two, crystal studded rings are attached onto the main vein and artery that lead into and out of her heart. They have to be together, otherwise they can’t do anything. The brass rings that attach to her are able to move with the vein’s and artery’s movements, for some reason.
Amberstone’s Life Spark jumps in between the crystal studs, before being launched to the next ring and bounces in between the crystals there before being released into her body again.
(Both devices were put into place during Unhealthy Interests, by Omentus Anima, one of Drammor’s characters.)
: Her wing scales can loosen to absorb impacts, like chain mail does. Her Life Spark is what keeps them connected.
: The scales on her wings can fall off whenever she wants them to. They are still able to move under her control, despite being off of her wings.
: Amberstone can manipulate the wing scales to fly after an opponent, potentially cutting into them
Life Spark Skills
Life Spark is what she calls electricity.
Falls under natural skills as well.
These are now stronger, about six times more, due to the amplifiers.
: Her scales can be charged with her electricity, and can discharge at any time she wants. They can also be used to aid her to see in dark areas by giving off light, or can be used against enemies to distract them.
: Amberstone can make electricity collect around her mouth and claws, in order to add the effect to close range attacks.
: After moving her scales around the enemy, Amberstone lets the stored electricity go, and her scales tends to launch towards the enemy in lances/lightning bolts from every direction at random times.
Easy to escape from by jumping or dodging her scales.
Is wide open, due to this takes a lot of focus for her.
: A variation of her cage skill, she can use her wings normally, and sends her electricity out in a bomb type fashion, which she is somewhat immune to. Uses her wings to wrap around an opponent that tries to get close to Amberstone. Can also bite and claw at the trapped enemy. Her immunity counts as she cannot be blinded due to this skill, but still causes mild pain to herself
The range is short, directly in front of her.
Can easily be attacked during this.
Easy to get out of, unless the electricity hits.
: Despite a fierce appearance, Amberstone is of a calmer, kinder demeanor than one might think, and approaches new things with both caution and curiosity. In a fight, she tends to be on the defensive, before she starts to eventually turn to offense. Stays alert during a fight too, Around her mother, she’s kind, but protective, just like her mother would be near her. Around others, she tends to be curious, but still remains wary, until she feels that she can trust someone.
Crevice in here means a window.
Sunwake means morning, sunfall means evening.
Outlook is city and/or town.
Only one newborn mewed underneath the cloth sheet, the other one was silent. My sister wrapped it in a new cloth, hanging her head at the loss, it was dead. My brother quickly asked, “When will this one’s scales show?”
Grandma, looking at the little one under the cloth, muttered the answer “Tomorrow at sunwake.” Most of my family left me and the newborn alone, as I looked out of the wide crevice, I saw the moon come up, as my silver scales sparkled in its light. Moving toward the bed, I pulled the sheet down, below her head and she squirmed about, before mewing at me. Grinning, I put my head around hers before my tail followed and I fell asleep, curled around my only cub.
Sunwake came, and I looked at my little one again, and noticed a couple of scales now. They shone as silver for a moment, before copper took over.
A hybrid…? That’s rare. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to tell them…
Worry passed over my face, as my mother came into the stone room.
“What’s wrong, my cub?” She looked at the newborn, who yawned for a while. Her eyes widened, “A Copper… with Silver accents? How is that possible?” Looking at me, she left the room, and before long an argument occurred. Many growls and roars echoed into the room, my newborn shuddered and tried to bury itself in my chest, it’s cries drowned in the argument nearby.
I know what’s going to happen…
I looked down at her,
They mean to kill you… I won’t let them, my cub. You don’t need to fear.
I gently wrapped her in a cloth bundle, taking it in my jaws carefully, before I moved over to the wide crevice in the wall. Stretching my giant wings, I leapt out of the room, and quickly took flight, escaping the roars from my home and left the outlook behind.
You are not going to be raised around the hierarchy, nor learn the hatred most of our species has for humans, due to the war and their hunting us for our scales.
It took my a while to find a safe spot to land, since I was now an outsider to my species, I flew high above mostly human outlooks. Sunfall was coming more quickly than I thought, the mountains nearby awash with orange, before I spotted a small plain, on the edge of a cliff. The black behind it was the beginning of a forest, which I noticed as I swooped down to land, I made sure my cub wasn’t hurt as I touched the ground. My silver scales changed to a gray fire as the sun continued to fall, and I moved closer to the treeline and set my cub down.
She mewed at me from within the bundle, and I gently unwrapped her. Her scales blended in with the orange of the sky, and I grinned at her, finally thinking of a name for her. “It’s alright, little Amberstone, you’re safe here.” My cub turned her head towards me, and opened her muddy yellow eyes at me, and grinned back.
Mother, Boltvein, watched me practice my Life Spark again. Thankfully, she has the same element as I do, so it really helps with learning. I still get hurt by my Life Spark, but it’s not that bad. She said that my copper scales actually help my element work with me, since copper conducts it. I also know how to hunt as well, my element even helps me out here too. No creature that I catch can deal with it either, especially the small ones.
“Good, my cub, keep trying,” mother said while watching my swipes, as she dodged left and right. The yellow-green grass around us swayed with our movements, the trees behind mother swayed gently in the breeze. Her element is more calmer than mine, but she says that’s because I’m a cub still. Electricity ran around my paws, and jumped to mother, but it didn’t bother her. Mom ducked after a left swipe, before I stepped back a bit. “Good, you’re alert.”
My tail swept left and right, I liked to practice with my mother, it was fun. Sometimes both of us really get into it, and its hard to stop, but we always stop short of hurting each other. My mother nodded, “That’s enough for today, sun fall’s approaching, little one.”
“Yes mother,” I eased up and turned back to the cliff, looking down at an outlook on the horizon. Most humans didn’t bother us up here, and I didn’t mind them. The wind shifted and blew against my wings, slightly opening them up.
I wonder what’s out there… I’ve flown with mother before, but we’ve never gone very far…
The cliff near me seems to be a light brown stone, but it’s very strong, despite sand that collects on it.
