PostSubject: Ophelia   Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:08 pm

((Ophelia is somewhat of an import/evolving character concept that transcends roleplays. As such, various events in her history, as well as her RP sample, are excerpts from previous sites, and may be found in searches. All prior accounts possessing a form of this character share the same email address as this one, so if any testimonial is needed, it can be provided.))

Name: Ophelia
Nickname: Grief Storm (Her old Hollow codename as designated by the Soul Society)
Age: 75
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation: Gray, bi
Weapon(s): A gigantic, combat-knife like sword, mostly used to defend against close combat. Though no Zanpakutou, it is capable of parrying one of similar strength, as well as acting as a medium for Cero.

Personality: Ophelia is able to become fast friends with any kind-hearted individual, and provided they aren’t some off-kilter, genocidal maniac, just about anyone. She is willing to give all beings a chance though, even if she would prefer to shy away from Shinigami and Quincy; their knee-jerk eradication of all Hollows is a practice she highly disapproves of. As a rule, she tends to behave subdued when dealing with people she does not know; it is a defense mechanism that has been retained from her meek persona as a human. This attitude stems from her mysterious past, and has grown much more resolved. A spirited dreamer, Ophelia has a positive outlook on Hollow life. She considers the existence of Hollows as innately natural, and attempts to thwart their proliferation are met with her opposition. Indeed, she actively encourages others to become Hollows, and is willing to make full use of any resources at her disposal to achieve this end. In spite of her attempts to protect Hollows, she is not adverse to the cannibalism that they naturally possess; Ophelia believes this to be a natural trait that should not be placed in check.

There is, however, a much darker side to her than most would expect. Buried loosely beneath the surface of her behavior is a woman that will strike down those who would threaten her happiness in an instant. This facet of her personality is the result of her complete fusion with the spirit of her long-since absorbed love, Vivvi. As such, she has taken on some of his malevolent mannerisms when she is angered, and can be sadistic at times. Since the evolution of her soul into a homogeneous entity, she presents a calmer side on the surface, but should she be angered, Ophelia can be a wrathful beast. It is not uncommon to see her ravenously devouring whatever pitiable soul made the error of angering her.

Physical Appearance:
Spoiler:
 
As the pinnacle of pure Hollow evolution, Ophelia's appearance has changed drastically, having absorbed countless Hollows and thwarted them all with her overpowering spirit. Her mask has changed radically, becoming somewhat like a stylized knight's helmet, with the visor removed to allow clear view of her human-like, cerulean eyes and the fair skin around them. From behind the top of the mask is a large plume of white feathers. A grated jaw-plate guards her nose and mouth, hiding them from view, but it can be pulled downward to allow her to eat. Behind it, her face is human with a human mouth, though her bite is no less deadly, possessing a jaw strength capable of crushing bones with ease.

Her hair has become short, reaching to her shoulders and ocean blue. Her height has settled at five and a half feet, and her figure has filled out noticeably. She dons pieces of dark blue plate armor, including a breastplate, gauntlets, a belt, and greaves. The rest of her outfit consists of a tattered dark blue tunic, white thigh-high socks, fingerless arm gloves, as well as a patterned collar and cape combo. On the front her outfit is a large pink ribbon tied in a bow. Her Hollow hole now rests between her breasts, hidden by her armor. Her gargantuan blade is secured to her back by a large leather holster.

Bio: In the beginning, she was not a single being. In fact, Ophelia's story starts much later. In order to understand that, however, the past lives of two individuals must be told. It all began with a single infant.

The being that came to be known as the Hollow Dorze was born in Madrid, Spain to a poor family of ten. Having no means or desire to feed him in addition to her other already malnourished offspring, his mother swiftly tossed him to the wilds. Dorze became a quick and easy meal for the predators of the forest beyond the large city. His spirit left to wander the unforgiving metropolis, Dorze could do little but crawl into a pile of refuse out of an instinctual search for shelter. At the fault of his makeshift shelter, the baby plus was never to be found by the occasional Shinigami squad searching for spirits to konso, or even the occasional hungry Hollow looking for a snack.

Time passed, and Dorze's chain of fate had all but eroded completely. His transformation into a Hollow inevitably took place. Dorze found his way to Heuco Mundo as soon as he could, and took comfort in the sands, nourishing himself off the thick reishi. He eventually became strong enough in his own right to make the journey to the world of the living once again. Enraged and confused at his own existence, Dorze found himself in a small village in the underdeveloped reaches of Europe.

Dorze was small enough in both stature and power to escape detection by the Shinigami. He would habitually target small children, perhaps out of spite, and consume them the moment they were left unattended. Dorze would receive additional satisfaction from the reactions of the mothers who grieved for their lost offspring. The Shinigami soon began to take notice of the disappearances and investigated. Dorze wised up to this and fled the village, in search of steadier sustainance.

Time passed, and the young Hollow matured a great deal. He had become one of the mighty Menos of Hueco Mundo, constantly consuming others of his kind for survival and growth. It was during this time of his life that he encountered a very odd Hollow. It was gargantuan in size and possessed a great gaping maw. Every now and then, a strange person would crawl out from beneath the Hollow. These people wore Hollow masks and possessed all sorts of unique powers, but little else. One such being that caught his eye stood away from all the others. She had long, black hair flowing to her mid back. Her mask sat atop her head like a little white cat face, and she possessed a fair allure that drew him to her.

On a whim, Dorze decided to take the girl in. He learned much. She used to be a Shinigami, a fairly high seated one at that. Her name was Azuki Takadata. The last thing she remembered was slipping on wet grass into a ravine. After that, there was nothing but sand. It was then when he found her, lost and confused. The girl sparked an interest within Dorze. She was like a Hollow in that she had both a hole in her chest and a mask, but she exhibited few of their traits; she lacked the feral instinct most of all. She possessed little desire to consume nearly as many souls to sustain her. Dorze decided to make this a goal of his own. In order to end his eternal hunger, he would become just like Azuki.

It wasn't until the Menos became one of the few Vasto Lorde that he was able to reach this goal. His form had settled into that of a small child; it matched his true age well, and yet, at the same time, radiated all of the malicious energy he had consumed over the years. Oddly, the Hollow lord who came to be known as Vivvi Dorze Macello, took to the habit of behaving like a girl. Azuki would stay by his side almost all the time. They became inseparable; like a mother and a child.

Everything changed when Vivvi and Azuki began to associate with a group of enterprising Hollows that lived in the remote regions of Hueco Mundo. They had big dreams and ideals. They wanted to change the world by overthrowing the Soul Society, and creating a place where Hollows could live naturally without being slaughtered like animals. Eventually, they put their plan into motion. Assembling a small band of elite warriors, they entered the realm of their nemeses via garganta, and laid siege to their walls. But this pathetic invasion was almost instantly crushed by a single, strong Captain of the Gotei Thirteen. Vivvi and Azuki were the last ones standing, but the strong child had exhausted himself making a futile effort to bring down the walls. He was cut down in short order by the Captain, while Azuki could only watch in horror. She remembered the Captain, after all. She was the seventh seat in his squad for the short number of years before her apparent demise. Recognizing her as well, Azuki began to feel hope that maybe they would be shown mercy. But almost as soon as he recalled her name, the Captain moved to run her through like all the others. After all, she was merely a Hollow now.

Her last wish was to be with the only one in the world who even cared for her anymore. Azuki subconsciously called out her mask's power for the first time. Because of the nature of the power she would have possessed as a Hollow, Azuki's very soul fused with that of the dying Vasto Lorde child. Shortly after this transpired, the Zanpakutou's cleansing ran its course; both Azuki and Vivvi became a single soul; a mere plus that ended up somewhere in the Rukon. While a soul with the kind of power the merged duo possessed, one would normally think they might end up as Shinigami. But instead, the being held in her heart that this was not the life for her, and instead of developing any of her latent spiritual energy, lived out her life until reincarnation took her back to the world of the living.

She was born again as Azuki Macello, to a humble Italian man and his Japanese wife in Hokkaido. The girl lived a relatively normal life, at least by social standards. From birth, she could clearly see the spirits of the departed. Her first encounter with a Hollow was by no means ordinary. The creature was fairly weak, but it was still hungry. It was one of the smaller variety that lived off the nourishment naturally provided by Hueco Mundo. It had somehow ended up in the human world, and rather than be afraid of it, Azuki found herself nursing the thing back to health with her own spiritual power.

After it eventually ran off in search of a way home, Azuki found herself naturally drawn to Hollows. Some of them were naturally hostile to her; they couldn't really help themselves, being beasts of instinct. The more intelligent ones, the ones not so quick to kill and eat anything in sight tended to get along with her, in an odd way. Some might say it was her calming presence, but Azuki just believed that not all Hollows were innately evil. Still, there were times when she had no choice but to defend herself from an aggressive Hollow. In times like this, another side of her would come out. This persona called itself Vivvi, and would violently dispatch any Hollow that dared attack her with a blast of spiritual power. Though Azuki would not frequently remember these episodes, they would occasionally creep up in her memory, and she would shed tears for those unfortunate enough to be slain by her other self. The young woman would continue both her education, as well as train herself to better be able to handle spiritual problems like Hollow aggressiveness without resorting to violence.

Unfortunately, her dreams were far too naive. Azuki found that any and all attempts to prevent Hollows from being slaughtered by non-violent means were an ideal that was nearly impossible to achieve. Her despair quickly began to consume her, and as a result, she became recklessly involved in a massive battle between Shinigami and Hollows in the world of the living. The untimely demise of a single Hollow who would hear her out resulted in her snapping. Vivvi quickly took the opportunity to take over and destroy the Shinigami responsible, but the girl's body was far too weak to stand up to even the first attacks. Regaining her senses, Azuki also regained all of her memories from both personalities, past and present. Finally, her soul had completely fused with Vivvi's. She was now a single entity. Before she could truly grasp the meaning, she came to the conclusion that she had failed her love completely. Thus, when an invading Gillian almost caught her in its feeding frenzy, the wound she received was enough to kill her. Consumed by despair, only the comforting words of a passing Shinigami who viewed the world as differently as she had prevented her from traversing a path of destruction. And thus, the Hollow was reborn as Ophleia.

Ages passed, and the newly formed soul came into power in her own right. Her exact memories had been reduced to fleeting emotions, and though they defined her as an individual, they would never again appear clearly before her. Ophelia was her own soul now, and as such, she would pursue her ideals with resolve.

Ability: Despair Torrent
Ophelia's Hollow powers are mainly fueled by water generation and manipulation, though the extent to which she can control it is limited. Instead, she focuses on using overwhelming amounts. Thoug water manipulation is the medium, it is attuned to her Hollow nature in such a way as to transmit her despair to others. As a cosmetic effect, various musical instruments and their melodies can be heard during the use of her powers.

Mirror of Tears - Any water Ophelia produces reflects within it images of the beholder's worst memories, whether a source of great anger or misery. This effect is always active, but anyone looking within its depths will see only their own memories (they cannot be seen by others).

Sudden Despair - Ophelia channels her Hollow power, unleashing a current of black energy that looks similar to electricity. This energy causes little physical damage, but instead induces a great deal of pain and agony. The exact experience varies from person to person, but as it directly targets the nervous system, it is difficult to mitigate. Though ferociously painful, its direction cannot be changed once fire, and its activation is preceded by a loud cymbal note.

Tragedy in Three Acts - Ophelia limits the use of her power initially, but increases its intensity the more desperate she becomes. As a result, she expends spiritual energy faster.

Act One, Faltering Hope - In this phase, Ophelia is calm and restrained. Mirror of Tears only takes the form of an orb at this stage, but it doubles in size for every post it is ignored. In other words, if at least one person is not looking at the orb, it grows. At any time, Ophelia can make the orb explode violently, sending waves of water and her own energy in every direction. The magnitude and radius of the explosion are proportional to its size. As a purely cosmetic effect, it is always raining heavily during this phase, and string instruments can be heard playing.

Act Two, Shattered Dreams - In this phase, Ophelia is feeling pressured by her opponent and releases more of her power, expending more spiritual energy in the process. Mirror of Tears is capable of being launched in the form of a large wave of water in addition to the explosive orb. The water lingers, rising with every use of the wave, and if an orb explodes, all of the water rushes outward from the epicenter with great force. The rains continue and string instruments are joined by electric guitars.

Act Three, Overwhelming Despair - In this phase, Ophelia has become desperate and launches a last ditch effort to either destroy or escape her opponent. Immense quantities of water surge around Ophelia acting like a reverse whirlpool. Potentially catastrophic flooding can occur depending on the environment and her remaining spiritual energy. In addition to this, Sudden Despair is fire unpredictably in all directions, increasing drastically in frequency and intensity the closer one is to Ophelia. This phase lasts until Ophelia runs out of spiritual energy. Finally, the sound of drums join in this Act.

Bala Lluvia – Ophelia’s custom cero. Like her Cero and Bala, it is grey-blue in color. She begins by taking a position above her intended target and charging up her power. All around her spheres of spiritual energy form. They are subsequently released to fall below her continuously like rain for three seconds in a circular region of ten meters in diameter. Each individual blast possesses the magnitude and speed of a standard Bala. This ability requires noticeable setup and cannot be used in rapid succession without tiring out.

High-Speed Regeneration - Common to high level Menos, Ophelia can restore any lost limbs or injuries (but not major organs) outside of battle.

Form: Vasto Lorde

Looks fine overall, though since it's a Hollow, I can only approve it for as high as ADP-0 with 60 points. Once the stats are applied and checked, this will be moved to accepted

Doctor is the member of the month. Ever since he joined, he's been extremely active, and really knows how to get things moving plot-wise. He was recently promoted to staff as well, and so far has shown great enthusiasm. He's also a friendly presence in the c-box, which is never a bad thing.

Gray is character of the month. Apparently one of the more popular characters on the site, well-known for his habit of stripping, which isn't good enough for Ulqui, but seems to do the job for his numerous IC fangirls. Has also earned (EARNED, not bought) numerous stat points in the past few months. Side note: Anyone who speaks of a gilf pairing will be shot on sight. :U
