PostSubject: Miranda Grey [Azure]   Fri Oct 12, 2012 8:48 pm



"Who is that girl I see staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection someone I don't know?"

- Mulan

Name: Miranda Grey
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Faction: Azure
Starting Rank: Knight

Personality: Miranda is a very complicated young woman. She says one thing and does the other, which makes her out to be a hypocrite though it's not intentional. It's just the way she is. Her persona is being pulled in two ways - the love of fighting and the pride of being a woman. Every action and words said would leave her torn and indecisive, causing her to hate herself. As a fighter, she lives for the glory and pride of winning a battle, not at all worried about how the people view her. A tough, cold, and serious tomboy that just has to keep moving. They called her, "Miranda Ice" - the knight whose cold gaze is as hot as her frozen heart. That goes against her "womanly" side, however. Behind her Knight persona (as she calls it), Miranda loves the poise and perfect manners of a high class woman. Back straight, chin high, and noise in the air with a beautiful and gorgeous dress to match. Her inner desires some would say, but Miranda knows that she has to keep it on the down low or people will not take her seriously.

Family: Her parents are simple farm workers for Azure. She has no siblings to speak of though she had been asking for one when she was a child. Her other relatives are far and few in between. Miranda isn't much of a family person, but is fierce in protecting them.

Background: Miranda was an ambitious little girl growing up in one of those monotonous farms. For the entirety of her childhood she did all chores obediently and swiftly so that she had the rest of the day to herself. Her parents usually found her reading one of the very few books they had, which was quite odd because they were non-fictional books that talked about the history and politics of Azure. Of course, there were a couple of books on the other countries and Miranda had read them as well. Yes, she was a very odd and composed child. Even though she played with other children, Miranda always seemed more "mature" and "alert."

By the time she was ten, the little farmer had been left alone by other children her age. They didn't feel too comfortable with her strong personality or her "too smart" criticisms. Then one day, when she and her family were really tight with money, Miranda had gone to join the 'Knight of Azure' in order to make some money for her family. Throughout her time there, she had been ridiculed for being a female in a man's world. Obviously there were other women there as well, but they had already earned their place as one of them.

It took years for Miranda to received their respect and acceptance, but she had done it. Day to day and month to month, she continued to work for Azure, working her way up the rankings as well.

How did they join the faction: It was a typical hot day in the simmering summer heat that some of the soldiers of Azure were going from farm to farm to collect their monthly supplies. Their work was a quick come and go until they began to mention the problems in the inner city to which Miranda had commented on with a pointed fact. Of course, the adults laughed at her and caused Miranda to challenge them to a 'duel'. A fight, she declared, the first to knock the person out of the self-made circle wins and gets something in return. The entire thing was a joke and Miranda, being small and observant, used her opponent's incoming force as her weapon. Her prize? Let her join the Knights.

Thoughts about their Faction: Being a knight is a huge source of pride for Miranda. The pay is good and helps her family live comfortably, and she is also able to buy herself amazing clothes and other accessories. Some of the things they do, however, she doesn't agree with. Like letting someone go if they didn't have any evidence of them not committing a crime. If it was obvious they were guilty, despite having an alibi and what not, then they should be put in jail.

Important Equipment or Items:
Her Weapon as a Knight - Tsume:
 
Cross of Mercy:
 

Special abilities or Spells:
-Eidetic Memory: The ability to recall images, sounds, objects, and sometimes even touch and feel of a memory with astounding precision. It is also known as "photographic memory" but at a higher level that, at times, the person may lose their grip on reality and end up hallucinating.

-Blue Spirit: Think Zuko being the Blue Spirit in Avatar: The Last Airbender. A sound body that's amazingly flexible and stealthy as a shadow at night. The flexibility and lightness of her body allows her to be quite acrobatic as well, not like a circus performer but enough to help her in battle. Despite being adept with using weapons, Miranda is also efficient at hand-to-hand combat.

First Form: Tsume no Fuyu
"The biting cold burns. Shred them, Tsume no Fuyu!"
Tsume no Fuyu grants Miranda a stat boost in agility. The innate ability/skill of Tsume no Fuyu focuses on the theme of "winter" so that when it touches an opponent their limb(s) or any part that had been touched will be frozen and they cannot distinguish if it is 'burning' or 'freezing.' The level of the ability is dependent on how severe Miranda's attack was.

If it was a simple touch by the blunt or flat side of her sword, the only effects would a be sudden chill spreading outwardly in a circle, slowing that creature or person's reaction time. A small cut will expose it to freezing temperatures, and numbing the section around it. The larger the cut is, the worse the effect will be like limiting the movement of the arm as if it's being weighed down by a cast. And the last effect would be that their limb(s) would completely be useless and immovable.


When it's weapon against weapon however, it's a bit harder to tell the effects. The ice and cold will still be used, but it will take several tries before a section of the sword is completely frozen. Examples would be: one hit would leave the blade cold to the touch, two would leave a thin layer of ice on the surface, three would add on to the layer, and so on and so forth until the seventh hit would form an inch or two block of ice around the weapon. Continuous hit would add more solid ice and thus adding more weight.

This sword is weak against fire and heat, but is quite resistant to any ice or water elements.

Ok so the main body of information looks good , but a little work to do in the transformation area (Since your not familiar with it) The sword itself needs a release word , for instance if if the sword name is "Tsume no Fuyu" you could say "Freeze . Tsume no Fuyu" or split or some other word , but im sure you'll be more creative than i am =3

Firstly , The ability blue spirit , Is this an effect she uses on her own or is it given by the sword? THe reason i ask is that when you upgrade to your second form you get a "Boost" to one stat. You could say that this is that boost. However if you want to use it as its own seperate ability then i ask that you not use speed or Reaction as your stat boosted through your sword.

Secondly your sword upon reaching first form (Which you already have) means that it will boost a stat , so you need to include that in the description of fist form , And instead of putting :First for , Azure" just but the name of that form of the sword.

Lastly you also have the option of creating a special skill which can be used with the sword in its transformed state (The two blade form im assuming) This ability will be required if you ever wish to reach the third form. However this is something that you can say she hasnt learned yet. But if she's the quick learner type than she would have probably already figured this out.

Release Word & First Form
- Is a phrase alright? Because if I just say a 'word' it feels kinda weird. lol. Anyways, the phrase is "The biting cold burns. Shred them, Tsume no Fuyu."
- Added a description, though I'm not sure if it's the correct way to do so or if it's even a valid skill.
- As for her having learned or is learning it, I'll just have her figured it out 3/4 of the way.

The Blue Spirit
- It's her own ability, and I don't believe it's a stat boost. You could say that it's her "fighting style."
- If I were to have used a stat boost, I would have listed a "natural physical skill" like "fast runner" because of she has legs longer than most people giving her an advantage in speed.

Hope I didn't miss anything.

First form
Looks pretty good and yes the phrase is fine. The power of the sword('s) however is a bit vague , i cant tell if you use an ability to do this or if its something innate and that always happens. If its something that always happen make it a build up , so for instance say the first time you hit them it would slow the movement of that area , if it hits a second time they start getting major malfunction (Kinda like having a cast on it just wont work properly) and getting hit a 3rd or fourth time makes it impossible to use. Or however you want to do it thats just an example. Also does this only happen when the blade cuts , or even if she hits them with the flat side of the blade or the blunt? What happens if they block it with their own weapon is the weapon effected by the cold as well? Also being an ice type ability this wouldnt be as effective against people with resistance to ice.

The Blue Spirit
Im still confused as to what this does as i have never watched "Avatar" , so for those of use who dont know im wondering if its just a fighting style why its under the abilities section? Does she turn blue xD *Really wants to know that one*. If its not an ability that she activates and is just her innate talent set then its prefectly fine to have it there i was just confused from the wording/placement. And in that case you can use an agility or speed boost as your first forms stat boost.



I hope i dont seem like im being to harsh =(

First Form
It's innate and always happens whenever the blade touches a person or object or any surface. And I've expanded the description to what it does. Hopefully it's acceptable.

The Blue Spirit
It's a simple fighting style and I thought that 'abilities' is a section that does can affect or does anything in battle. lol. That's why I put it there. Anyways, it's a simple talent that she had to perfect. Smile

And you weren't being harsh at all Ai. You're fine.
