Re: Character List
Name: Na’thal the shadow fighter
Hair: Jet black
Eyes: Emerald green
Weight: 80 kg
Weapon: Katana (4 foot blade)
Strengths: a good sword fighter, and can use the Kranal to a certain degree.
Weakness: Can easily be beaten in a sword fight, and can only perform simple tasks with the Kranal, like floating rocks, or hurling a person backwards a few meters. Trickier tasks, like making big creatures freeze, require allot of energy, and will render him unable to fight for a couple of hours. Always uses hands to perform tasks with the Kranal.
Skills/Magic: Is a good sword fighter and is able to use the Kranal. (See below)
The Kranal: The Kranal is the main source of the powers of the shadow fighters. It enables them to move things and cause creatures to freeze with the power of their own mind. But the person must first realise the ability to use this power is there, before they can use it at all. The main disadvantage with this power is they must make some kind of movement in order to perform the task they want. This usually means the use of their hands, although they can use their head or eyes if they so wish. The Kranal also gives the people who can use it the ability to live longer than they normally would.
Personality: Na’thal is a kind and caring person, willing to help those who need it. He rarely uses his power, except in the defence of either himself or someone else, in case he might hurt someone. But if provoked in any way he will lash out with it, sometimes causing great harm to the one doing the provoking. He is also very quick to anger. His sword is the one possession he has kept over his years of travelling and, if lost, he will try anything to get it back. He would even consider murder.
Appearance: Na’thal wears black leather boots, a pair of green trousers, and a stained white t-shirt. His katana’s hilt can be seen over his shoulder, and the blade goes all the way down his back. His jet black hair goes no lower than his shoulders, and his power always makes him look like he is a sixteen years old person, even though he may be over one hundred.
History: Na’thal was born in the land of Kish’onal. But at the age 30 he left the land in search of a place of excitement. After two years he discovered he had the power to move things, and stop people with an ancient power called ‘The Kranal’. About eight years later he found a land stricken by war between light and dark, and, wanting to help, went in search of someone who could train him in the ways of the shadow fighter. He soon found someone, who was only known by the name of sensei.
She trained him for many years in the way of a shadow fighter. Even the oath they must take. The day he made that oath was the best day of his training. The oath goes “My sensei is more than my teacher. My sensei is like my mother/father, and I will willingly give my own life to save his/hers. Such is the pledge of a shadow fighter.” To which the sensei would reply “I, your sensei, do accept your pledge [Name of person]. Now arise and put away the old and become as new. Arise [name of person] as my son/daughter.”
He was trained for 110 years, never learning his sensei’s name. Then he received a letter telling him that his village had been destroyed, and everyone in it was killed. No training was done that day. But after that his resolve to fight was just made stronger.
He was trained for another 30 years. During which he became a good sword fighter, and quite adept at using his power. But one-day servants of the light attacked and killed his sensei. With her last words she wished Na’thal luck with his quest and gave him the one thing he will never lose. Her katana. He left her home and went in search of an army to join. Eventually his journey took him out of the land he was in, and across the ocean. Now, nine years later, he is just in search of someone to be his friend in this weird and hostile world.
