Word of the day: Notagoth
Join Date: Oct 2005
Location: Jim Rowe's house
Race: Human, with a Spider inhabiting (not infesting) in him.
Eyes: Blue flecked with black
Weight: 136 Pounds
Height: 5'9 feet
Weapon: A small iron mace in the shape of a scraming human face.
Armor: Spin silk, which is weak against normal weapons, but negates 70% of the effects of magic. It is in the form of a cloak with a picture of a spider sewn onto the back in white.
Strenghts- Daryn is the anti magician magician, kinda like the chick terminator from Terminater 3. He is very strong willed, able to control weaker creatures to help in his culling of the unfit. His armor negates other magic users spells, making him almost impervious to magic. His mind can not be taken over by psychics and cannot be tricked into hallucinations by magic or drug. He can summon 2 giant spiders at a time which can attack his enemies while Daryn prepares a spell.
Giant spiders- Physically strong, but mentally weak. If Daryn's concentration is broke, they dissapear. Their base color is black, but are flecked with purple spots on the top and around their pincers. Their feet are magically sharp, able to tear through steel, but are cumbersome and slow. Their sense of smell can let them fish out hidden warriors before they attack. Like their master, they are sensitive to smell and light.
Weakness- Daryn is very weak. If he tried to, he could only bench 45 pounds. His armor sucks against melee attacks. If his concentration is broke in the middle of a spell, his own spells will drain energy out of him. He is very light and smell sensitive, so if you put him in a very bright room, he'd weaken, and if you stuck 30 day old raw meat under his nose he'd be knocked unconcious. His spear easily breaks against steel.
Summon Guardians- Summons Two Giant spiders.
Summon Steed- Lets Daryn summon a very weak giant tarantula.
Control- Lets Daryn control small animals, acting as scouts.
Fear- Makes the recipient halucinate.
Personality- Daryn isn't necessarily evil, but he isn't neutral either. He just likes to hurt things that get in his way. So I guess I would describe him as the Medeival CIA agent. Yeah CIA agent.
Daryn is 5'9 and very skinny, only about 135 pounds. His hair is pure white and lightly trimmed. It ends in long wispy bangs that give each other a two inch berth, while the backburns splay out in all directions. He is garbed in a black cloak with a large spiderman esque spider painted on the back. Small spider metal knick-knacks dangle from various places on the cloak, tinkling when he runs. The cloak hangs down to the knees, a large warped version of our own leather jackets. His knees are covered by leather bracers, and his feet are protected by simple brown boots.
Daryn was raised in the village Edlesmire, deep inside the heart of the Silver forest, named for its collection of beech trees. He was born to a widow named Elly- his father had drowned to death when he was held underwater by water reeds. Elly was a strict mother who did not like Daryn at all -because he was an accident - and made him rip out bramble vines from there yard with his bear hands every summer, and sell matches in the cold of winter. In spring he was made to steal honey from bee hives and in autunm* to rake leaves from every house in the village.
A village that had a horrible secret. It was custom in the village to give the smallest 7 year old child to the giant spiders that nested near the village. It was believed that children had no soul until they turned 8, when they were taught every thing the village knew of history. Daryn was a small child.
On his 7th birthday the villagers took him deeper into the forest and tied him to two large trees. They sang and danced for the spiders appearance. For 2 days they waited, and on the third their prayers were answered with the cresendos of chitinous feet and the clatter of pincers. The villagers watched with glee as the whimpering child was carried off in the pincers of the she-spider.
Daryn was taken to the nest, a huge web that covered about a mile of forest. He was wrapped up in webbing and stored for three days. When the queens children tried to feed on Daryn, the queen would kill and eat the attempted thieves. When the Queen came on the fourth day, she buried her stinger inside his stomach, shooting an egg inside of him. Then she unwrapped him and let him go.
He wandered for days until he felt... a presence. Hello, it said. The egg had hatched inside of him, but it had not tried to eat its way out! This had never been heard of. Thanking the gods for his gift, he went back to the village, and- with the guidance og The Voice- burned it to the ground.
After that he found his way out of the forest and took odd jobs to support himself. He did not hear from the voice anymore. Thinking it dead, he led a normal life. Until he was 15.
Age 13 the voice was heard again. Again it guided Daryn to kill and cause destruction. The spider wanted the weak culled. "Only the strong of arm and strong of mind should be allowed to live", It assured Daryn. Daryn killed and killed and killed and drove more to kill for him. The Voice taught him how to use the magic fused inside their blood to summon spiders, control animals and make others hallucinate. It even gave him a steed made of a tarantula.
At age 14 Daryn had amassed a small kingdom of spiders and humans alike. But this was not what The Voice was born for. The original Queen spider gathered her children and blanketed the land in a horrible black shadow. Man killed spider, spider killed spider, spider killed man in a bloody war. The dark army of the queen finnally surrounded Daryn's last fortress. The queen sent huge mental attacks at the voice and Daryn, which made them submit to her power.
The Queen then sent mental images of Daryn spreading her religion to the humans. She was furious that her village of fanatics had been killed, but she knew that she could gain thousands of followers in only a few years time. She thengarbed Daryn in Spin silk, a very magical cloth which dispersed aggresive magic's effect on the wearer.
On Daryn's 15th birthday he started to travel to other lands, spreading The Creed Of The Spider.....
