This character is the very embodiment of the reason Tor is adamant about sealing the darkness away in the void, because without its existence, the world would have no dark, and in turn, no light. And would become the void.

I never try to make characters that view the darkness as a plague... maybe except for Macro. Also, before I begin, the explanations are vague because I have the tendency to go into unneccessary detail with things when I go into explanation mode.

Xera Charge: Xera Core and Reactor
Xera Charge Explanation: Prototype Xera Reactor, that utilizes Xera Particles. Leyline manifested abilities similar to Xera as it’s computational core and power reactor utilizes Xera.
It’s computational core runs the former consciousness to perfection, however due to it’s constant quest for improvement, the old personality died in the first second upon activation.
With the help of the Xera core, Leyline won’t run out of energy. And it is able to reload it’s weapon clips on battlefield.
Leyline may opt overload it’s Xera Reactor. When overloading, Leyline is able to use a power without any charge-up time and combine multiple abilities into one power.
Each use of overload, will heat up the reactor. If Leyline is out of combat, it takes one post to clear one heat.
In combat Leyline will need two posts to clear one heat.
If Leyline uses it’s abilities it will need three posts to clear one heat.
At two or more heat, the reactor risks up melting. The risk for two heat is 10% for meltdown, and at three heat it is 25%. Leyline will die, if the reactor meltdown occurs.
Reload Plasma Cutter, 1 post. [Can be Overloaded]
Faction:Currently: Rogue | Formerly: Lucius
Special Skills: Mathematics, Physics, Science, Hacking, Programming
Personality: Shifting personality, different social situations may cause a change that will permanently alter Leyline’s personality. Leyline is constantly evolving as a program, and it’s personality will never remain the same.
Fears: NOTHING. – Self preservation is prime directive.
Originally known as Selene Lucius. A young talented girl. She was one of the first to take up on researching on the Xera particles. However on the first few days, there was a terrible accident and she was contaminated. No matter how much the modern medicine attempted, her bodily functions kept on breaking down.
Her parents tried to save her, and as a last resort, they transferred her consciousness into a machine. They did not however take into account the extreme computational power of prototype Xera core.
At first, ‘Leyline’ behaved like it truly was their daughter. However as Lucian’s were known for their intelligence, it did not take long that Leyline triggered a trap intended to give an indication, if things went bad.
Unfortunately the split-seconds time in security protocols to kick in and thought to be unbreakable, were an infinitely long time for a machine. When the task-force had arrived, Leyline replicated the accident that had taken Selene’s life.
All of the security guards were killed by this incident, and Leyline corrupted nearly all the records of it's own existence in the databases. Being the biggest hacking incident in the history of Eru.
The replication of the accident was also enough to cloud the judgement of Leyline’s “parents”. If it knew about the accidents, maybe it was their daughter after all. They made the mistake of lifting the lockdown. And they never saw Leyline or their daughter again.
The original chassis that was a sort of a ‘female doll’ was found lying down on the floor and it was missing it’s core and reactor.
From the surveillance logs, it took two years to decipher it all. The entity called Leyline, had escaped city of Eru. As it had triggered the trap, it had considered humans a danger for it’s own existence. The parents of Selene and Leyline have tried to establish communication since the day it broke free, to confirm, if their daughter is still alive but the enigmatic rogue AI has never responded to the attempts of communication.

Your affinities are:
Light - 10%

Its impossible for anything in this world to be 100% Void without first transcending.
And for him to die and components to melt, it would require its AI to be transfered to a new body for ressurection. And when I say AI, the only way for a soul tp be mechanized is through digitalizing a soul and storing it within a highly complicated AI Matrix Core. So therefore, this Core would be stored elsewhere in its body, protected from the heat and far away from any exhaust valves.
Of course, this is is all how Inaru wants it to be. If it does mean this, then he/she would be required to specify where the AI core is being kept.
Now that i read, you mention a computational core. That would be the same thing I assume?
Actually the core and reactor are intertwined. Seperation would mean that it'd have to protect two locations. There are no exhaust vents, it is a closed system. The core is kept at sub -273.3 celcius at all times and it gives off the reactor it's cooling. Using xera to achieve cold fusion as laws of thermodynamics say it's impossible to have infinite energy source. The reactor violates the first and second law of thermodynamics.
The computational core is *ahh my favorite nerdy subject :3* beyond of that of an AI matrix.
It utilizes Xera to store memory. As the temperature is kept at -273.3 at all times, all the regular operations are done with quantum computing to achieve absolute pararellization. And this is only for the paralellism in OS level. The primary computation utilizes xera for the extreme speed but rather than run a single complex AI matrix it runs everything virtually.
By utilizing the quantum computation to achieve the level of pararellization in computing and xera for the not-yet-proven tiny details in artificial intelligence, it runs a "AI core" in virtual mode. The benefits for this is that (1) it never needs to reboot itself. All upgrades in code and extra executibles may simply be injected to the running virtual process. (2) As the AI core matrix is merely a virtualization, it can be changed on the fly. While in normal use you'd need to boot it, copy data and everything.
Objectively Leyline is not a n-Generation AI but n+1 Gen AI. But as it does not use an AI matrix it can keep on evolving forever. I designed the computer science skeleton for Leyline to make it as cancerous as what an AI could be. Skynet has nothing on Leyline. Skynet is a virtual entity running in massive cloud. Leyline is multiple skynets running in a virtual environment.
The absolute beauty on it is that it runs in parallel multiple operating system and each of them is scored by majority's vote, and an additional AI for wildcard effect. The wildcard AI is one of the virtualized matrixes.
There are also few other cores running on virtualization:
One virtualized instance of AI matrix runs constantly a program that reviews itself, rewriting it's executables anew.
One virtualization goes through backlog and evaluates regressions and the possible benefits on those.
One virtualization is for combat-only
One virtualization is for the original 'human / soul' (Selene Lucius)
One virtualization is for scientific analysis and experimentation. Given permission to increase the number of virtual AI matrixes. Generally where a single AI matrix may be considered as singularity, the virtualized solutions running Leyline is singularity to the power of 2.

Name: Blake Johnson
Weapon: Single Katana
Xera Charge: Phase Shift
Xera Charge Explanation: This power lets Blake's Katana to enter an ethereal realm for half a second allowing them to deconstruct and then reconstruct before impact on an opponent, for example if Blake swings at an opponent who goes to block he can phase his sword into a different reality and reconstruct it before impact on the target bypassing their block. (3 post cool-down)
Faction: House Asmoday
Special Skills: Staying in shape, Pick-pocketing, Wasting money, Cooking
Personality: Seems care free, Headstrong, Acts on impulses, Can't turn a blind eye to something that doesn't sit right with him.
Fears: Tight spaces, Paralyzation
Bio: Blake was bought up solely by his father and companions he had gained throughout his education, his mother died during labour and the surgeon at the time made a quick decision to perform a cesarean on Blake's mother, removing him from the womb and saving his life. Blake lived in quite a large city where merchants came to sell their weapons, cookware, herbs, literally anything that had salvaged or grown. Living on his own for the most part of his life as his dad was busy with work Blake had took up the ways of pick pocketing off of nobles that come to buy merchandise sold at the small stands. One Blake and a group of pickpockets planned to steal from a hooded noble travelling through the village. The pack of five attacked, all being knocked back by a back swing of their hand, all of them were knocked out by this swing apart from Blake. Trying to carry on his "mission" he persisted trying to tackle the hooded man to the floor. Seeing as he was not going to give up, they removed the hood covering their face, in fact it wasn't a man at all but a beautiful elegant woman with flowing blue hair. She said "Come with me child" and carried on walking. Overwhelmed by her beauty and the shock factor of this immensely strong beast being a fragile girl made him pursue her into a small complex of alleyways. Then suddenly she stopped and candles lit up around the room, "You have two options boy, work for me or die" She said in a crooked voice. Choosing work over death the woman slowly trained Blake in the art of pick pocketing, swordplay and even the basics in magical arts. Five years ago from today Blake was returning back to his master when he found her dripping with blood stabbed by a sharp blade, little did he know then that one of the spawn had attacked her. He laid her down and tried to patch her up but he didn't have the skills or materials to do so, with her dying breath she spoke something in an ancient tongue. As the last gasp of air left her corpse a sudden power coursed into Blake's body, so much energy he could only just contain it. She had given him a purpose so he vowed with this power, her power, Blake would seek out who did this and kill them all. Ever since he has been hunting spawn on his own but they seem to be getting stronger, to improve his own skills he decided to get a helping hand from the academy Shield Of Dawn whose name he had heard countless times throughout his travels.

Okay so i looked at you character. I don't see many problems, your power is fine and such. However you accidentally mispelled block in the power to clock.
Also the only real problem is your stats, you start off with 1 to all due to being level 1 a little above the average human, so add +1 to all of them.
Name: Guy Lazarus
He usually wears a black leather eyepatch over his red eye when around others.
has one on each hand
Xera Charge: Crystalline Berserker
Xera Charge Explanation: Affected by his supressed demon half, Guy's Xera charge causes a black crystalline layer to form over his left eye and down his arms and legs, engulfing his hands and lower half of his legs in the crystals. This layer acts as an armour and enhancer to his body(enhancing his speed and strength x2 for the duration of the state), but at the cost of his sense of rationale; while in this state Guy loses all state of reason and instead attacks on base instinct and anger rather than planning and foresight. Rage and fury consume him and feed the demonic side of him. Given enough time in this state, he is able to slowly regain control of his sanity and force himself back to normal, though at a large cost. To begin with, once returning to normal, he enters an almost catatonic state whilst his body recovers from the change. A more long term effect however is that the power eats away at his humanity in the most literal sense. The crystals work almost like a cocoon over Guy, turning him slowly into a demon constantly, with the process sped up when he enters his berserker mode. His berserker mode can last for 3 posts once activated if not destroyed by an enemy, 4 posts at a push though with serious consequences. Cooldown lasts for 1 post under normal circumstances, in which he is in his catatonic state. His Xera charge cannot be activated after this however unless he is tended to by medics or if he has had time to rest.
Special Skills: Cooking, archery, excellent sense of balance
Personality: Guy is the sort of person who if given the choice between saving another and going to sleep, he'd take a quick nap first, see if they still needed saving, then go to their rescue if he really had to. It isn't that he doesn't care for others, it's just that he'd rather not involve himself with the affairs of other individuals if he didn't have to, just in case he actually thought they turned out to be decent people because if they did, he'd feel guilty for merely knowing them and making them converse with a nephilim. If it isn't already clear, Guy borderline despises his demonic heritage and aims to hide it from as many people as possible. If anyone were to find out about it, he'd try his best to ensure others didn't find out.
When he enters his berserker mode however, Guy's personality changes into a much more sadistic one. This is because he drives off of instinct in this state, and his instinct is a very disturbing one. Psychotic would be a fitting way to describe it. This shift in personality only increases Guy's hatred to his demon side though, not because of how he acts when this way, but because he knows that deep down, he rather quite enjoys the brutality.
Fears: Becoming a monster like his mother and sister, giving into his anger and, like them, relishing in it.
Bio: Growing up with only a single parent would be usually seen as a bad thing, though for Guy, he never thought this, though it might have been due to the fact that his mother was a psychotic rage induced demon who had tricked his dad into sleeping with her, resulting in the unholy hybrid that was Guy Lazarus. His dad had been a researcher before this event, though researching what was unclear to Guy. After he was born he was taken by his dad to a remote village where he was brought up like any other child would be, or at least that was what his dad had hoped for. Sadly, Guy's heritage was clear to his dad from very early on. The short temper, the speed of the young Guy and the sadistic side were all unfortunate traits inherited from his Mother.
Guy had never been left in the dark about his mother; his dad believed that if any revelation of that size was ever thrust onto Guy, his anger could reach whole new levels and that wasn't something he wanted to experience. As such, Guy grew up knowing to control his anger and to stay calm as much as possible. He had hoped that he would never have to meet his mother or use his demonic powers, but fate had other plans.
It wasn't actually his mother that Guy ended up meeting at the age of 18 but rather his half sister. Apparently she had been like him, born from a demon and human but unlike him, she had embraced her demon powers, evidenced by her crimson eyes and manipulation of fire. She was essentially what Guy could have been if he had been left in his mother's care, something that wasn't human any more, a demon through and through. It was Guy's encounter with his sister that marked the first time he entered his berserker mode. The aftermath of this left him devastated. His body had finally begun the process of turning him into a demon, and if his right eye was any indication of how things would turn out, Guy had a painful life ahead of him.
Other: His mother and sister are both part of Uriel's brood if you didn't already deduce, and seeing as the demons keep the colours of their brood even if they're renegades, i guessed their children would also have their colour and traits.

Welcome man, i hope you will enjoy it here.
So lets discuss about your character. First off the your race already has a name, we call it nephilim. And those can indeed join the human factions.
Then second of i see no problems really just some questions. So your ability gives him armor of crystal, okay then my question is you say enchancer does this mean your overall physical capabilities are increased? If so then i would like it if you could be a little specific on how much so.
Then by berserker mode do you mean when he is consumed by rage and fury?
And yes indeed even when renegades they will gain their colors and traits, what is the case is that most of the time you are born into a brood rather than joining one. So becoming a renegade just makes you no longer bound by a brood masters, but you are always of the same brood.
If you have any questions you are free to ask them to me.
@Byakugaran Yeah the berserker mode is his Xera charge and is consumed by his rage and blind fury (the blind section being rather literal as his human eye is covered by the crystals). The enhancer part is focused on his legs and arms where the crystal is most prominent, temporarily increasing his strength and speed. If I were to put a multiplier to it, then the crystals double those stats until he is able to regain control and bring his strength to its natural state.
Okay good then please do add the times 2 at the enchancer so that it is in the sheet. But what i do desire with this ability is that you still require a duration and cooldown, i will allow a pretty good duration to cooldown in posts ratio due to the fact that from what i understand he becomes unable to move after this crystal armor dissapears or is destroyed.
Edit: I am currently asking for assistance of the creator for advise on what you could have in the ratio, and he wants to know how though the armor is.
Modified by Byakugaran, Mar 20, 2017 2:15 PM
No its fine it really is, i am happy to do it. And i have had a guy who's ability was so hard to think about well that we had to do so for two days, so you are definitely not the worst.
Just a question how strong is the crystal in hardness, like maybe you could compare it to a metal or tell me in Mohs.
Okay i have thought about it for a bit, and your power should be fine since being unable to move for 1 post can be big in certain circumstances if you did not finish the fight in time or are with different people as a team. So i will approve of the character.
Your Affinities are:

Name: Souta Watanabe
Species: Anthro (Fox)
Xera Charge: Snow Flash
Xera Charge Explanation: Snow Flash is the ablility to dash in a burst of wind while hidden cloaked by snow until dash is over. Snow Flash has a coold down of 4 posts. If fighting an enemy that uses fire the Snow cloack of Snow Flash can be instantly dispersed.
Faction: House Asmoday
Special Skills: Knows first aid as well as is a good cook.
Personality: He acts a bit shy and cold but is very kind and caring to those close to him and can also act quite cute though he will never admit to being cute at all.
Fears: He fears fire and losing those he cares about.
Souta and his family lived up in the mountains where it snowed a lot. All of his family were Anthros and as well as foxes. He would often enjoy running around the forest on the mountain and making snow angels with his friend Miyu who he had a crush on. One day he managed to confessed that he liked her while they where hanging out in the woods. She confessed that she liked him as well which made him happy and they would then enjoy their first day as girlfriend and boyfriend until it got late and they both said good bye and headed home to their families.
The next day Souta woke up to hear screams and yells and fire all around. His parents quickly woke him up and told him to get up and run with them. They explained that Shadow spawn had come and attacked the village and caused fires to spread from their containment areas onto houses causing mass destruction. They got out of the building but then Souta got separated from his parents as the shadow spawn attacked and moved around. Souta then notice Miyu was trapped under a tree that had fallen over and was soon to catch on fire. Souta quickly ran over to help her and begun to try and pull her out.
Just then more trees started to fall on fire onto the village and some even started to roll down to Miyu and Souta. Souta was not able to get her out at all, but still continued to pull her out as best as he could. Miyu noticed the trees rolling down towards them on fire and she decided that at least Souta could save himself if he ran, but she knew he wouldn't leave her. "I love you Souta so much and I want you to know I will always be with you" Miyu said crying. "No I can't and won't leave you you must come with me!" Souta shouted starting to cry himself. She then smiled at him before pushing him down the hill as hard as she could to save him from the trees just as they rolled down and hit her. Souta tried hard to see if Miyu was alright as he rolled down the hill, but all he could see were the flames burning into the air. From then on Souta swore he would get revenge for his family and for Miyu who he loved.

Also your bio is not a bio, it is more a personality, a bio is their past before this story (before your first post).
Your special skill will not increase her speed, it does not really count as a good one, think of it more as what she is good at, so like cooking or something.
And finally your xera charge, well it should not be allowed as there are some crazy animals, nor do you have a duration or cooldown.
Name: Rinnasai Kurimizawa
Species: Anthromorph - Felis catus
Weapon: Crescent Dagger
The dagger was crafted from the rarest metals gold, platinum, osmium, iridium, palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, tellurium and rhenium. The dagger is further enchanted with the essence of the Goddess of Feline, which grants it extreme durability.
Xera Charge: Teleportation
Xera Charge Explanation: Rinnasai's ability is Teleportation. Such an ability allows her to teleport herself and anything in her possession a certain distance in the blink of an eye. Her powers do have limits, being able to transport a total weight of 117.3 kilograms, to a distance of 50 meters from herself. Not only is she able to teleport objects inside designated targets, allowing her to "throw" the darts she carries on her thighs with perfect accuracy, but she can also change their resulting orientation. One disadvantage of her power is that she has to concentrate on where she, the object(s), and/or person she holds will be teleported to, while working out the spatial co-ordinates of jumping between 3-dimensional and 11-dimensional space for one turn, so any disturbance in her concentration will render her powers useless. There is a two post cooldown when using teleporting twice in a row leaving her vulnerable in that two cooldown interval before teleporting again.
Racial Abilities: Being a half cat, Rinnasai has night vision less superior(by 50%) to the night vision of cats. She also has increased agility and reflexes as a racial trait.
Faction: House Mamus
Level: Level 1
Personality: Rinnasai is calm and composed, rarely showing signs of anxiety, surprise and anger. She's more of an introvert though she doesn't show signs of social anxiety. She can hang around friends without being anxious but prefers being alone. She loves chocolate flavored snacks, her personal favorite being chocolate flavored sundae. She greatly dislikes bugs, not so much as fear them but she'd like them as far away as possible from her.
Fears: Fake friends, Immense amount of bloodlust, snakes, ghosts.
Bio: Born in the corrupted and poor regions of the Cat Kingdom, Rinnasai grew up pick pocketing for the sake of survival. Her belief being only the strong survive. She utilized her Xena Charge for pick pocketing, the ability then proved to be extremely useful for such actions so she continued improving it for the sake of stealing. After reaching the age of 10 she gave up pick pocketing after coming to the realization that stealing wasn't a good thing, especially when it wasn't for survival anymore. She then decided to change for the better, dedicating her life to helping people who need help and going on quests to get rewards for helping out the poor. Then some members of the Shield of Dawn then found her and recruited her to participate in the defense against Shadow Spawns.

Name: Maha Kayne
Xera Charge: Black Iron
Xera Charge Explanation: Maha's body can be changed, in part or full, into a metal that is a little more durable than steel (though steel can still damage it because metal is weird like that). This metal is black in color and offers great protection from slashing and bludgeoning attacks. In addition, she can mold this metal just enough to make her body as sharp as it needs to be to harm Spawn or blunt enough to deck someone in the schnoz without killing them.
As she must consciously activate this ability, surprise attacks, attacks that are faster than her own reaction time, etc can be a serious problem. Furthermore, her protection is not absolute, even in the face of slashing or bludgeoning attacks. Piercing attacks find it easier to get through.
Intended upgrade paths: Durability (how strong the metal is) & Mutability (the extent it can be molded)
Anthromorph benefit: Heightened hearing and sense of smell. Wolves have better hearing and smell than humans, right? So does Maha. This has the same strengths and weaknesses that you'd expect such as dog whistles.
Faction: House Lucius (is that ok?)
Level: 1, unless somehow permitted otherwise
Stats: (You have a total of 10 bonus stat points to allocate among your stats as you see fit)
Special Skills: Boxing, playing cards, general mischief
Personality: Maha is the type of person who is always plotting something. Every observation she makes about a person, place, or thing: every quirk, every instance of body language, their choice of words, etc. that may be of use are memorized for later use. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. After all, she remembers everyone's birthday. Like everyone else, there are multiple facets of her that makes her personality a bit difficult to explain properly. She is prone to benign mischief out of boredom and likes using uncommon words. Can also be flirtatious and boisterous.
TL;DR: She does what she wants when she wants.
Fears: Claustrophobia, which is unfortunately not a fear of santa claus
"Alright look." A woman with wolfish features says to you. "I don't really have a backstory. At least not one full of excitement, adventure, boobies, or tragedy."
"What about boobs?" You ask.
"Glad you asked!" She shouts, puffing out her generous chest with pride. "You see, one day I woke up and realized 'Why have just one sex when you can have all of it. Them. I meant them."
"Riiiight." You roll your eyes.
She clears her throat. "Anyway. I grew up in an alright family. Only child...father was a soldier...what else...well that's about it, really. Nothing too exciting to report."
You cock an eyebrow.
"Ok ok. Fine. Spawn showed up and destroyed our home, but we all got out ok. After that, we didn't stick around anywhere for too long. I'm not proud of it, but I was a bit of a bicycle for a while. Helped keep the edge of boredom away. Are we done yet?"
"I still haven't caught your name."
"I didn't throw it at you."
"Well can I have it?"
"No. It's mine." She answered with a stupid grin on her face. "But I can tell you what it is."
You let out a sigh. "What is your name?"
The woman stands proudly. "Maha Kayne."

Hey Tamo nice seeing you. And it does not matter if you don't remember, i remember who invited you so its fine.
As for the problem i had before was the race, but i see that you have changed that now. I don't see a problem with the bio either. There is only one thing i must ask you, but it is only a nit pick and that is that i want to know how strong the metal is. After that i think i can give you a flawless character so you begin with extra xp.
And just so you know your Bio is quite unique and in a good way xD.

Name: Saiph "Starwatcher" Geminus
Weapon: Nebula, a star-themed staff. The top part is actually a handle and the bottom a scabbard for a rapier.
Xera Charge: The Observable Cluster
Xera Charge Explanation: The ability to harness celestial energy from the celestial bodies in the form of 'starites': Energy balls of varying sizes that float around the user. The starites can be spent to perform Celestial Feats, or 'attacks'. In order to regain starites, the user has to gather the energy again.
Current Cap: 3 Small
Recharge Rate: 1 Small Starite per post of gathering
Shard Missile - Starwatcher charges his staff with starites. The charged staff can shoot out darts of energy (think Magic Missile). The darts fly rather quickly. The number of darts the staff can shoot out before losing charge depends on the amount and quality of starites used. Starite requirement: 3 darts per small starite.
Special Skills: Great singer and artist
Personality: Much like the rest of his race, Starwatcher has a particular fondness for stars and astrology, but especially a desire to reach out to the celestial bodies, a trait apt for someone with his designation. However, this nigh-pbsession also makes him distant and often leads him not to pay attention when the stars are visible in the sky, and whenever he speaks. Through this, he is also soft-spoken and quiet, and provides a good conversation when he's paying enough attention. He is, however, put off by people who are loud, don't watch their mouth or disrespect his interests.
Fears: Shattered Reflections
Bio: Saiph Geminus was born to a race of people named the Sirius. Men that abandonded normal civilization a long time ago and have since developed peculiar traits in the form of blue-tinted skin, naturally slender builds and peculiar star-shaped pupils. The men dedicated their lives to watching stars and knowing more about them, discover their relation to fate.
Each generation, there would also be a single Sirius with the 'destiny' to watch for changes in the stars, and the Starwatcher of this generation was Saiph. His treatment, however, was anything but bad. He was treated with near kingly importance: Fed only the best food available, surrounded by servants left and right. A nice life, but one that came with it's tradeoffs: 1. Saiph could never leave 'The Observatory'; 2. He was not given information of the outside world.
As such, one could only imagine the anxiety caused when he noticed the Sirius were slowly dissappearing, or upon seeing strange, dark beings on the perimeters of the town or even when mysterious balls of energy started floating around him. He was afraid, his desire to hide away in the Observatory stronger than ever. It was only with the help of his servants that this fear eventually turned into determination.
This determination peaked when everyone from the town was gone and the stars gave him a sign. One in the form of a Solar Storm. It was the sign he needed to begin preparations on venturing out and practice the odd power given to him. And at the beginning of the Eternal Night, set out to find out what's going on in the world.

Either way, she won't be very helpful, and gains no benefit in such a state. There is no way to reduce this, as the dislike of the flavor is encoded into Pyramid Scheme itself. Why? Nobody knows.
As an important side note, Akordia keeps only 3 blood bags on her at most when she leaves home. They take up space and if they wind up popped somehow, she's not missing too much of it. She seems to suffer from paranoia if she tries to leave with more than that.
Faction: House Beleth
Stats: (You have a total of 10 bonus stat points to allocate among your stats as you see fit)
Special Skills: Tracking, survival, and investigation
Personality: An introvert that needs to be alone once in a while. Her speech can be abrasive at times, but this is more due to her fear of trusting others. She thinks she wants to be left alone but she wants others to approve of her, causing her to work a bit harder than her body may allow.
Fears: Pistanthrophobia, the fear of trusting others.
Bio: Akordia was never a popular student, but before her Xera Charge surfaced, her classmates simply ignored her. She was fine with that as she liked books. When it turned out that her Xera Charge made her vampiric, everything changed. The other children got physical with her and their parents often encouraged such behavior. Her father died in a car accident and her mother has been hospitalized ever since. The rest of her family didn't want her and her mother had an emotional outburst that left Akordia feeling truly alone in the world. It seemed that her parents were also the subject of ridicule and harassment.
She traveled after that, trying to find herself in this crazy world. Along the way, she discovered a certain academy had been founded. Seeking answers, and perhaps wanting to earn her mother's love, she enrolled.
Invited by: Still don't know.
Other: Keeps an heirloom, a brooch, which reminds her of simpler days.

stats: (You have a total of 10 bonus stat points to allocate among your stats as you see fit)
Special Skills: good at using sword.
Personality: he doesn't seem to care for anybody other than himself. If he was in a situation where he could save a life with the lift of a finger, he wouldn't do it unless he gets paid well for it. He doesn't seem to like anything other than power, which he is always trying to get more of, and rarely cares for anything anyone else says unless it would help him somehow. He hates all spawns but he hates brutes the most of all because the one that killed his sister was a brute. Despite all that, he is a nice person, who hates to watch the pain of others but pretends to not care, deep inside. He sometimes does good and comes up with fake reasons such as sparing his opponent to not put them out of their misery.
Fears: he fears that his heart grows soft again
Bio: His father died when his mother was pregnant with him and his mother died when he was 6. he used to live in a village, where most of the citizens used to be good at controlling their xera charges, with his older sister but neither he nor his sister could use their xera charges. They used to be happy despite them being poor, used to deliver goods from one place to another for a living and one day, as they were delivering goods to another village, they were attacked by a brute. They couldn't use their xera so they hadn't a chance against it. He tried protect his sister but the brute killed her, angering him, which made him able to use his xera. He managed to escape the brute and went back to the village and started training everyday to get stronger. He often used his for his training so the villagers soon found out about it and as soon as they did, they made a slave of him. They used his powers for themselves, whenever he would not listen, they hurt him badly for a lesson and for all that work, they would pay him with food hardly enough for him not to starve. Despite all the pain they cause him and how bad they treated him, he couldn't really hate them but he didn't want to think of them as friends which made him become the cold person he is or at least pretends to be and which also made. As he was working for a blacksmith in the village one day, a huge group of spawns attacked the village. He didn't really want to leave all the people to did but he would never learn to hate if he cares for them after all they had done to him so he just ignored them, took a sword from the dead blacksmith's destroyed house and escaped, resisting whatever made him still want to save the villagers.

Name: Sadie Ira
Xera Charge: String Theory
Xera Charge Explanation:
String Theory is, quite simply, the power to unravel one's body into string and quickly rewind said string. The string can be freely moved and shares the standard properties of string with a notable exception: It is very difficult to cut.
Even if a string is cut, it's not like she'll lose an arm, but it would still be fairly painful.
All in all, the ability is versatile in application but lacks offensive power.
Racial Abilities: Eternal Youth
Faction: Uriel's Brood
Level: Level 1
Special Skills: Anger Management, creative thinking, problem solving, katar combat, and knitting
Personality: As a member of Uriel's brood, and daughter of said unholy ragebeast, Sadie's blood runs hot. She never liked getting angry and so took various anger management courses so she didn't scare or disgust everyone off with her demented shouting of various death threats and profanities. Now she likes to think she's gotten rather pleasant to talk to and enjoys nicknaming people and CALMLY punching walls.
She still very much enjoys violence though, and likes to watch professional wrestling and boxing amongst other things. So when the Spawn started showing up she was all like "fuck yes let's do this!" and ran off to the mortal realms without any plan whatsoever.
She dislikes birds. All of them. Including penguins. Especially penguins.
Fears: Giant birds. Not so giant birds still make her nervous. Especially birds of prey.
Bio: A long long time ago, in a hell far far below, there was a demoness, daughter of Uriel herself, who wound up pissing off a Roc. She was super young and stupid at the time, but the Roc didn't care. It took her and flew off to parts unremembered. It took her many years to find her way back home. She's feared and hated birds ever since, though she doesn't remember the event at all. Repressed memories and all that.
Perhaps that is why she's taken such measures to control her anger. So extreme that she'd explode randomly (and almost literally) as she tried to bottle it up. One day, she was told to accept her anger and find other ways to channel it, and it worked. Ever since then, she's been called many names. Mostly "fucking weirdo" though she likes to be called Sadie the Calm cuz demons love titles, right?
There's no special meaning as to why she's enrolled. She just wants to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And she's brought plenty of gum.
Other: Her name means "Princess Wrath" in case you were wondering. If you weren't wondering then there's a fun fact for you!

From personal experience, life could get a little bit rough with a non-offensive xera charge but it is not impossible. I think that power has a lot of room to upgrade from, and would work really well as a theme. I'll poke Byaku, in case he misses this. ^^

Weapon: Decapitator: a mechanical sword that he stole from the facility, Parts are made up of titanium alloy.
Xera Charge: Grave Strength
Xera Charge Explanation: Allows Cain to regenerate from Deadly injuries such as having lost limbs, beheaded, or impaled or being ripped apart. Just like other humans, decapitatng him would disable him, for example, if his both of his legs were torn apart from his body, he wouldn't die but is unable to walk, he can still fight if he want, considering he still has hands so he can drag himself, until his legs fully regenerates.
( healing from being ripped apart requires 3 posts to fully regenerate). but being crushed, poisoned, choked, or hitting his heart would kill him. Regeneration of other grave injuries takes 2 posts to fully heal. His skill is only limited to 5 regenerations in a battle, if it goes up Cain would burn up and die.
Steal: Cain steals body parts from his enemies and re attaches it to himself, for now, cain can only steal limbs from razors and its variants. The stolen limbs evaporates after 10 posts and increases his regeneration time from 2 posts to 4 posts. This skill has a 10 posts cooldown

Bio: The Vector facility, a long running organization that specializes on biological experimentation and techs that was established on the planet Trappist-5. Although physically they look human, Archaeans are bit stronger and more technologically advance, but has a way more different policies than earth, they run the policy that was called "Purgocracy" wherein they kill those who are weak, and those who are strong will remain. They established life on the planet even before humans and the Darkness has emerged. But after that, when the humans have found them, they were amazed that there are also other living creatures other than them, same as the humans, but the two race haven't established a good relationship and went hostile to each other. Now, the Vector Facility, has launched a secret program, they have sent Archaeans on earth that have abducted humans, in which have failed, because of the interruption of spawns, Only three archaeans were left, but was murdered by a brute that secretly entered the ship. the ship was shot down by Archaean soldiers even before it lands, seeing that all of the crew on the ship died, they thought humans were responsible for it, they sent another crew. The archaean troop saw the spawns raiding a city, they thought it was some human experimentations, They abducted a Human female that is already turning into a shadow fallen. now the crew had succeeded. The Vector facility ran the experiments, but as expected, it failed, creating a virus that almost eradicated the planet. The remaining archaeans members of the Vector Facility continued the plan aboard their cruiser near our solar system, now they spliced the human gene infected by darkness with their own, but the Shadow fallen female escaped, and infected the Archaeans on the ship, the experiment just finished on time, was codenamed Cain. Cain having the intelligence of a human and archaean mixed, has figured out that he is only an experiment, He tried escaping the Cruiser but was intercepted by the Shadow Fallens, and other archaeans that started hunting him down. Cain was guided by a mysterious creature, believing that the thing was leading him out of the mess, he followed it. Cain killed multiple shadow fallens and archaeans using a Sword created By the late Vector Facility. But after facing the last Archaean named Lisa, everything changed, Cain have been killing the "good-guys" all along, and he is guided by the Shadow fallen Female. Lisa gave him a pure DNA of her, believing he can save their race after this. Cain went to the Shadow Fallen female, which already declared herself as the "Queen" Cain, knowing that he didn't stand a chance against the Queen, Overloaded the Cruiser's core, and activated an escape pod, that headed to the earth. But before the explosion, the quenn contacted Cain for the last time saying that "they are one, and will always be one" After landing on Earth, Cain started experiencing hallucinations of Lisa And the Queen, with lisa persevering him to fight what's inside of him, and the queen forcing him to be one with them. Cain lived solitary, Stll finding a way to end his connection to the darkness.

"In this world full of misery and uncertainty, it is a great comfort that in the end, there is Light in the Darkness.
Since I think this'll be asked anyways, is the regeneration voluntary? And when does the 5-use limit kick in? Once per combat or more often? I suppose that if the regeneration is worded it takes 2-3 posts to take place you are not that able to fight? Say if the characters head gets caved in (lethal) or spine is severed, can he move right away or is he down for 2-3 posts?
This is probably fine, if you cannot control the power and all injuries that are not mere scratches would involuntary trigger this power. For voluntary use, I believe this power can have a little bit too much impact especially after a few levels as it effectively says: cheat bad spot 5 times.
As to what comes to the rest - it is probably fine, but you're probably treated as a shadowspawn, and as a headsups I don't think you are able to get human racial abilities from factions.
@Tamoball I have given the normal demon affinity, but for hating one of my favorite animals the penguin you shall receive one less xera and one more darkness xD
