Kuro Akarui / Wisteria Banshee

Post by Kuro on Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:31 pm

Real World
Name: Kuro Akarui
Age: 14
Gender: Male
Appearance: Slightly scrawny build and below average height, Kuro has reddish brown hair and dim amber eyes.  He wears a pair of glasses rather than using his neuro linker to correct his eyesight out of a habit and preference.
Spoiler:

Personality: Kuro is a shy character with very little in the way of social skills. Extremely self-conscious, he often finds himself lacking the self confidence to bring himself to be a part of the world around him, preferring to hide behind an avatar or screen. He is friendly, polite, and a tad naive at times. When around those he knows better and when out of public, he can relax more and reveal a more outspoken side of himself and appear to have very little of his shy personality. Level headed and calm in most situations, though still unwilling to approach others he doesn't know.  

History:
Kuro grew up as an only child in a normal family of his father, mother, and himself. He was a gifted reader from a young age and spent his younger years with his nose buried in all types of reading material. His parents worried about this, thinking that his habits would hurt his social development, so they tried to encourage him to talk to others more. When he finally came out of his shell and tried to talk to his classmates during elementary school, he found that he had no topics in common with them to talk about and was quickly ostracized from the social ring of his classes. The majority of interaction he got from classmates after that was constant ridicule as people poked fun at his naivety and bookworm habits. He tried to ignore their jeers and hoped that they would grow tired of the practice, but his lack of outward reaction to their bullying only made him an easy target with no threat of retaliation. Thus the verbal abuse continued. Kuro did nothing but endured this for years until his patience snapped in the sixth grade. Being fed up with the bullies, he hurled one of his school books through the window of his classroom in frustration. After being lectured for this behavior by the teacher, he simply glared at his tormentors. He did nothing to them, said nothing to them, just continued to glare at all times of the school day for a week. His show of obvious fury and hatred eventually unnerved them as they were convinced that he was planning some sort of revenge, and a teacher was informed of the situation who immediately informed his parents. It was at home in the safety of his own normal surroundings that Kuro broke down and cried out all the frustration with their support.

Kuro changed after that day. Seeing that the simple ignoring of his stresses had only caused it to build up until he could stand it no longer, his personality went through a drastic change. He was still withdrawn and shy but, as if a switch had been turned off in his head, he began to care less about various things in life. He became laid back and relaxed, not worrying about anything and only applying himself to what he deemed worthy. This reflected in his grades, which changed from near perfect straight A's to average level as he lost his diligence towards his homework and studies. He also picked up gaming at this time, finding it to be another enjoyable pass time like his reading. With his focus off of work and more applied to fun, he became quite skilled at many types of games and made extensive use of his neurolinker. He found it easier to socialize on the web, chatting with unseen acquaintances or interacting behind the face of an avatar. The gaming community also provided him with a source of people to finally chat with on common interests. This was how he met his Brain Burst guardian. Akira Usui, an upperclassman at his school who was also a gamer managed to identify Kuro with information he'd talked about on the web, such as what school he went to and how he spent his days. Greeting Kuro in real life, he became Kuro's first live friend and the two spent much of their free time playing together online. One day, he asked Kuro if he'd like the idea of "furthering his potential". When Kuro consented that he would like such an idea, Akira sent him the Brain Burst program.

After installing the program, which Kuro already felt a sense of achievement from after Akira told him that there was a chance of failure during the installation, Kuro's following night was a hellish one.  He found himself floating in the middle of a seemingly directionless void with very little light, almost like he was in the vast area of outer space; but with no stars.  All he could see around him were black, faceless apparitions from which countless voices lashed out at him with ridicule and jeers that sounded like the bullying he'd faced back in his youth.  He bunched himself up and covered his ears, trying to block out the sounds as the shadows constantly circled him while drawing nearer and nearer, but their voices seemed to just flow into his very being with no mercy despite his blocked hearing.  In a quiet and timid voice, he begged the tormentors to stop as they pressed closer.  When this didn't work, he tried again a little louder while moving out of his folded prone position.  His request fell on deaf ears, pushing his mental patience to the limit.  His face grew contorted from anger and annoyance, and his hands balled tightly into quivering fists.  Taking a deep breath, he roared out at the top of his lungs for all of them to leave him alone.  As if his finally taking a stand and defying them had released some kind of energy, all of the shadows were pushed back; at the same time, the dark space filled with a glowing light. Kuro felt as if something had left him and filled him with a lighter, more at ease heart.  Waking up from this dream, he began his gaming in the accelerated world the next day.

Point of Distinction: Though not entirely unique, Kuro's use of glasses rather than a neuro program is a occurrence that is growing rarer in the world.  He also makes a lot of use of physical books rather than relying on digital reading.  His most prominent characteristic though is his use of logic in situations.  With his calm disposition, he can think things through in almost any event and think of a plan to come out ahead.  This makes him effective in strategy based games and other such settings.  

Brain Burst Avatar
Appearance: Wisteria Banshee is a small demonic looking avatar.  Thin in appearance, and only standing at four and a half feet high, it is only given a sort of threatening appearance by its gnarled figure and a pair of tattered demon-like wings growing from its back.
Spoiler:
Explanation: Wisteria Banshee has the whole of Kuro's bullied past built into its design.  Its small and thin build is a result of the constant verbal abuse Kuro endured, belittling his view of himself and destroying his confidence.  Its purple shade, wisteria, groups Kuro into the category that consists of those who act based on the situation.  For the longest time, he was submissive and tried to endure.  But when his patience ran out and his anger grew strong enough, he burst out against his tormentors and let his feelings be known.  This coping method of letting the pent up feelings burst forth both from his outraged cry in class and the emotional session with his parents at his home gave birth to his avatar's identity as a banshee, a frightening demon that uses its cry as a weapon.

Parent: Akira Usui - Sky Temper

    Avatar Statistics:
    Total Stats: 200


  • STR: 35 - C

    • DIR: 20 - D
    • AMR: 15 - D





  • TAC: 85 - B+

    • SPL: 70 - B+
    • INT: 15 - D





  • AGI: 50 - B
  • KG: 30 - C
  • B&W: 25

Combat Statistics

  • ATK: 90 - B+
  • DEF: 30 - C

Abilities and Armaments: You have (1 Killer move) and (1 Ability [Passive or Active] or 1 Starting Armament).

Active Ability
Name: Death Call

Cost: 1 Scream Point; Scream Meter is a separate gauge with a maximum capacity of 3; 1 point can be gained by giving up 25% of Killer Gauge.

Description: Banshee's face plate glows in a bright purple color as he releases a screech that travels toward one enemy, bathing them with a glowing cone-shaped ray of light.  The light stretches out at a maximum of 12 meters in front of Banshee and a width of 3 meters.

Effect: The target caught in the light of the Death Call will suffer a temporary decrease to one combat stat (ATK, DEF, AGI, or KG).  The affected stat is decreased by an amount equal to Banshee's SPL minus the target's INT for one minute.  

Weakness: Despite being named like an auditory attack that would affect any enemy that hears it, Death Call is strictly a single target and directed ability that can be dodged if the opponent avoids the light from Banshee's face plate.  Affected enemies gain their full capabilities back after one minute (3 rounds).  The targeted stat is decided at the start of the ability activation and cannot be changed after execution has begun.

Special Move:
Name: Reaper Slash

Cost: 50%

Description: Banshee's sharp fingers glow with a bright purple light as he executes a powered cutting melee attack with one or both hands.

Effect: Applies a damage modifier of 1.2 to a successful melee attack.

Weakness: No different than a normal melee attack except for the increased power.  Banshee still carries all the risks associated with getting near his opponents with his small and fragile body.

While this char app is very good, keep in mind that DA is made for you to cope with your trauma. As such, Quasar, which is the embodiment of Kuro's personality, can't be used

Alright, I guess I wasn't careful enough about incorporating his trauma and coping into it.  It makes a little sense, but I can probably do better.  I'll give it some thought today and try to come up with a new avatar.

Sorry for the double post, but just announcing I'm done with the modifications. I thought up a new, better fitting avatar for my character and his trauma and want to know what everyone thinks. I really have to thank the members who are more knowledgeable of the canon and took the time to explain how Brain Burst works in making avatars to the rest of us. (Bunt's long thread on avatars was a big help in fitting the avatar to my trauma and coping method as well as deciding the color)

Reducind by your direct SPL stat seems too strong yet for a level one avatar, ask for the opinion of others if you think my claim is wrong.

Now that I think about it, a direct reduction does seem a little much at this level. I can save that for future bonuses. Only reason I went with that was the SPL being defined as the strength of such moves. But how about I take it a step further.

*goes to edit*

There we go. The move still uses SPL to determine its debuffing power, but is weak enough at this level to be resisted by the target's INT. I decided to fully incorporate the TAC stat into the move to make it fairer.
