Name: Rhea van Abendroth
Age: 17(appearance),over 350(real age)
Ragnarok,the Black Blood Sword
A special sword,enchanted with a black spell.The more magic blood touches the blade,the tougher,sharper and powerful the sword becomes.It also gains weight(it seems that Rhea can,however,move it as if it weights nothing more than a feather).
Rhea lost the sheath long ago.So,instead,she keeps the sword on her back,tied with a long chain,which she also makes use of for long-range attacks.
Van Abendroth was a family with a large occultist history.Rhea,like any other member of her family,is capable of various dark arts,like necromancy and beast summoning.
Due to her past nature,Rhea can pull out large bat-like wings,and can replace 'Natura Preserva' with human blood if needed.
Rhea is able to manipulate fire.
Personality: Moody,Tsundere,Clumsy,Intelligent,fond of old things and tradition.
Van Abendroth was a respected,aristocratic Alucard family.They were mostly mercenaries,only caring in fact for information gaining.
What is known is that,one day,the Demon Lord decided to wipe them out.And he did.But he discovered he killed by accident someone he thought was useful;Rhea Van Abedronth,The Midnight Dame.
"No problem,I can fix that." he thought,and made his men resurrect her.
But it didn't go as he expected.Rhea killed everyone present,and bathed her sword,Ragnarok,in their blood.What a feisty day!So feisty,she even lost the poor guy's sheath...
All in all,ever since,Rhea swore to be the one to kill the bastard,so she joined the Scarlets.

3 Longswords, with he carries on his back. He also has a pistol, which he rarely uses.
Balthier is gifted with unnaturally strong eyesight. His vision allow him to see with incrediable clarity and detail, as well as see over incrediable distances. He can even 'Zoom' in his vision, as required, making him a ace shot with any gun. When he was a pirate, he would capture ships by shooting the captain from across the water no matter the distance or conditions. The more impossible the shot was, the faster the crew surrendered.
Balthier is a charming, dashing man with a sharp and cunning wit. He is also rather cynical. Balthier comes across as cocky and self-centered at times, but is a man that can be trusted in a tight situation.
Balthier was a former pirate captain, of the ship Stayln. Together with he crew, they were feared throughout the 9 seas. They raided and captured many ships, amassing a small fortune. Of course, that wasn't enough for them. They were pirates, afterall.
One day, however, on their way to their heist, Balthier was visiously mutinied upon. His first mate, Corneleaus, had grown ambition, and turned the crew against their captain. He was beaten half to death, and thrown in the sea. Left for dead.
Luckily for him, he washed up on the beach of Valmiro, a small fishing village on the Vineria coast. There, he was taken the local blacksmith and his family. The aided him, and he helped with the blacksmithing. Balthier never liked to own a debt.
About a year later, he heard news that his previous crew has disbanded under their knew captain. Something about a disastaurous attack against a military vessel. By this time, Balthier had left the blacksmith, and was given the three swords he carries as a parting gift. When he heard the knew, he decided it was time for his revenge.
He would hunt down his former crew members, and punish them for their betrayel.
Recently, Balthier journey of vengence had lead him to the small Kingdom of Orlesia.

Fraction: Vagabond for now
~Potential: Being a rookie, Minna has enormous potential to become just about anything.
~Intellect: Can figure out how most things work after seeing it once. More complicated things usually need two times, vague usually needs three, and abstract usually needs four.
~Mage: Talent in the magical arts passed down through the generations.
~Entrepreneurship: Are you an eskimo? Tired of your food not staying frozen even in the arctic tundra? Then you need this refrigerator! Keep your food frozen even longer! That's right! Freeze your whale blubber into oblivion!
Needless to say, she has the ability to buy, sell, and appraise wares by looking at them most times.
~Scatterbrained: She tends to forget things, especially names. She also gets distracted a bit easily. She doesn't lack focus, she just focuses a little too much
~Orphaned: With no family, she is truly on her own.
Personality: A bit quiet and timid, but a social butterfly when needed to be, a bit ditzy, loses things because she thinks too much, kind of eccentric and does like to show off.
Bio: Fleur doesn't remember much of her past except her parents died in a raid of her home village. Now she tries to simply get by doing whatever it takes. Her life on the streets has led many items of value to enter her hands until she was taken in as an apprentice to an entrepreneur, gaining knowledge of appraisal of...well anything.
But her real talent is magic, why she hasn't been scouted out is anyone's guess. Probably just not being in their radar or something. No one ever suspects the witty shopkeeper.

Stygian,The Underworld Rune
A long,black sword.It has both edges sharp,and is very,very thin.It seems to posses a strange ability;whoever is cut by it,will feel the fire of hell within him/her.It is said only a certain spell or black blood can cure the Fire of Styx.
May'el has the power to manipulate fire of a pitch-black color.They are abnormal flames,which seem to also cause brain damage to those that survives the burns.

She can change her appearance,and mask her scent.Under this form,she looks like a human being.
Personality: Mysterious,Sadistic,Melancholic,Lone-Wolf,Anti-social.She seems to prefer the company of so-called "nonanimated" objects,like trees,stars,and the moon,rather than her fellow companions.Her objectives and the reason why she serves under the Demon Lord is unknown,but something is quite fishy about her.
Bio: May'el Mi Babel's past is fold in darkness.All that is known is that she appeared one day in Messor's palace,killing every demon in her way.As she broke open the doors in his throne room,she rised her eyebrows and smirked at him.
"This is all your men can do?"
"I know,many idiots serve under me." the demon lord sighed.May'el swung her blade,but instead of attacking Messor,she stabbed the ground.Kneeling in one knee,she giggled."Then I shall be the only one who isn't pathetic in your army,my lord."

"Because I like to keep an eye on big and bad guys."

Name: Tyria Vi'an Belial, The Lady of Lies
Age: Looks about early 20's but real age is anyone's guess.
~Silver Tongued Master: Using sheer words, subterfuge, and persuasion, Tyria can convince others that truths are lies and lies are truths.
~ Mindbreaker: The power of absolute illusion, Tyria creates illusions that assault the mind directly, effectively warping ones perception of reality. Unfortunately she has to be careful with this as anything obvious will immediately backfire and thus she goes out of her way to make it as convincing as possible. Legend says that she enslaved mortals with this insidious power, but it's anyone's guess.
As these illusions are perceived by the mind itself, all six senses are effectively bypassed and fooled but with enough logical reasoning, one can surmise that it's all fake. Once that realization dawns on the victim, the illusions, no matter how large and elaborate, immediately shatter. However, due to bloodfort andromeda, she can't use any elaborate illusions like she used to and so relies on more subtle things like hallucinations. All she has to do is be able to see the target.
~Bloodfort Andromeda: This is a curse of the DNA given to Tyria by Messor in an effort to both force her to submit to his will and to figure out this DNA thing. As such, her body is very frail and she gains flu-like symptoms if she uses her power of illusions for too long, on too many people, or too elaborate.
Personality: A trickster, loves fun and games even when someone gets hurt, enjoys debauchery and 'dark' pleasures. More later.
Bio: Not much is known and what is known could be a lie. One does not know with the lady of lies. All that is known is that there is a small cult that worships her as a god and she suffers from some unknown 'illness'
It's likely that she would be willing to share to someone she trusts and deems worthy of the truth. Until then, don't ask.

Name: Damian son of Durlock
Race: Demonfolk (Father was a Demon, Mother was Human)
Weapon(s): A 'holy sword' called Lux
1.) Umbramancy: When in darkness, and ONLY in darkness... he can bend it to his will and almost give it LIFE. In truth the shadow 'monsters' he creates are only extensions of his mind in conciousness... kinda like a puppet master possessing his own dolls. If he can imagine the nightmare, he can CREATE it.
*NOTE* He has a 'Demon form' whic is him pulling off his mask and revealing a jack-o-lantern face... but he can have it in a semi-human form if desired
2.) Photomancy: With his 'sword relic' (Lux) which he stole from the church he was imprisoned in, he can use 'light magicks' and was design originally to purge demons, undead, and any non-mortal 'dark' entities... but its less than effective against them considering most dark enities aren't really weak against 'fire' and 'light'.
*NOTE* he can only even HOLD the sword because of his Human/Mortal blood... true demons can't even TOUCH IT without getting burned...
Personality: Social, but sometimes rather awkard... spending most of his life in chains under a church would do that to man. He's not sure of his stance in the War, his moral compass is a bit 'different' than most people's. Not bad, just.. different.
Mom was a Nun, contract with Demon, disappeared and reappeared pregnant, gave birth and died, Damian was born and sealed away under church, escaped and destroyed church, joined Scarlets
Damian's mother long before he was born was a nun serving in small church in a small almost and almost unknown faith called "Munda" meaning "to cleanse". The faith was founded by what was belived to be an Angelfolk and a virgin woman who set out to 'cleanse' the world of evil and in some long forgotten battle... she lost her life. Her magical holy sword "Lux" was recovered and the church was founded upon it as it served as her grave marker.
Damian's mother was devout guardian and worshipper of the holy sword and was more than happy to lay down her life in its protection... but one day: she mysteriously vanished. The head priestess and all the nuns seeked her out in the surrounding woods, but to no avail. She wasn't to be found.
It wasn't until almost a year later that she returned... and she was pregnant and dieing. The Head Priestess was angry, happy, and sad all at once. Damian's mother didn't have much time and she only said a few feverish words that were understandable: "My son is will be Damian... his father Durlock... the contract... the CONTRACT..." she kept on repeating tha for at least an hour, until Damian was born and his mother died holding him for the first and last time.
The church was confused about what to do with the boy... there has never been a boy in the church of Munda. But the Head Priestess had the final say so about it, and so raised him herself and called him Damian son of Durlock.
But by the age of 4-5... the church realized something was wrong with the boy. He started talking to himself... alot. He spent more time in dark rooms than out in the sun. When the Head Priestess tried to pull him out of one of his rooms, in a temper tantrum the darkness within the room attacked her and killing her.
After that they realized what he was... a Demonfolk. Many of the nuns wanted to preach forgiveness and wanted to protect him, after all that's what the Head Priestess would have wanted...
These nuns were outcasted and shunned by the majority of the community. So instead they captured him, sealed him in one of the dungeons always filled with lights and candles. There he was routinely tortured by splashing holy water, sleep deprivation, and reading passages from the Book of Munda constantly.
Days turned into weeks, then to months, and years. After awhile the nuns began to leave him alone and often forgot to even feed him. He went from being just a normal kid with a 'problem' into caged beast. During this time of solitude, he began having regular but mysterious visits from a man who claimed to be named ‘Durlock’. The man simply 'appeared' in the dungeon... and claimed to be his Father and to be a DEMON.
Over the years the ‘man’ made regular visits on an almost daily basis, telling him about the wonders and terrors of the outside world. Teaching him about all the things he’d been missing. And yes, many times he did ask his Father to set him free, but he claimed he couldn’t. The chains that bound Damian into place he could not touch and the candles he couldn’t extinguish… both were of Angel make.
(In retrospect, this is all the more conclusive truth that a demon that tells nothing but the truth can be 10 times more devious than one who constantly lies…)
It was well over 10 years that he spent in that dungeon with constant visists from his Father, and the irregular ones from the nuns. But one day, an accident occurred… one of the nuns delivering food knocked over a single candle which created single shadow.
Damian’s innate power reawakend in an instant and extinguished the rest of the candles himself (human blood lets him do that) and he escaped the dungeon. The nuns and the new Head Priestess were in rush and panic to try and stop him.
But he merely swatted them all like flies… he took the holy relic ‘Lux’ and burned the church down behind him as he left.
Its now been one year since that day, his father has neglected to contact him since then, and he has recently joined the Mercenary Guild known as the ‘Scarlets’ due to the late ongoing war with the Demons… he doesn’t know even now whose side he really is on: Mortal or Demon.

Age: Appearance of 22, true age is unknown.
Weapon(s): Two cursed daggers (Hope & Despair) and a two-handed sword (Nahkza'lor, The Soulrender).
Personality: Azah'lon is a highly intelligent, calm and apathetic man. He possesses the typical traits of an assassin, but does not have their morals. Defeat is not an option and he will not fail his goal, no matter the cost. You wouldn't be able to tell him apart from the commonage, because he is a master of disguise after all. He values power, loyalty and skill above all. If you unlucky enough to spot some whirling black smoke, it's probably going to be the last thing you ever see, as he leaves the shadows and kills you.
Precognition - Allows Azah'lon to be able to sense danger in advance and he can predict the opponent's attacks.
The reason why Azah'lon has this ability is because he is an assassin type fighter. He relies on surprise attacks and if for some reason he ends up in a head-to-head fight, he must have something to put him on even ground with his opponent. It's not too strong due to the fact that just because he knows an attack is coming, it doesn't necessarily mean he can avoid it and he has to rely on his elusiveness to dodge it.
Enveloping Shadows - Gives Azah'lon the ability to become invisible for a short period of time, while also being able to move around. In addition, Enveloping Shadows can also be used to cloak nearby allies; however, multi-cloaking requires absolute concentration and allows no movement. As he enters the shadows and becomes invisible, black smoke envelops him.
This is Azah'lon's signature skill. Invisibility would be an overpowered ability, that's why I added a time limit to it. Because of that, it is no longer something he can stay hidden in, but rather a tactical move. The area of effect-cloaking was just a cool added feature and the movement restriction made it more balanced out. If it's too much, I can remove the area-cloaking and just stick with the invisibility.
It's also not something to fully rely on. If the enemy knows that you are coming, they can detect you easier (they can also see the smoke when he enters invisibility). Nothing else changes apart from the invisibility, so they can still hear you, for example.
Ambivalence - If the enemy has been wounded by the daggers, Azah'lon is able to cast Ambivalence, which drives the victim insane for a short period of time.
Ambivalence pretty much means "mixed feelings or emotions" and is entirely based on the curse of his daggers. When the enemy is wounded, they are inflicted with a curse that allows him to cast Ambivalence. It's a mental ability, so Azah'lon can use it from range.
Hope and Despair are the complete opposite of each other, therefore they synchronize very well. The thing that drives the victim insane is the overflow of mixed feelings and their brain blacks out momentarily. This ability is used to escape, chase, interrupt or have time to re-position. It gets weaker and weaker throughout a fight because the enemy learns to deal with it, so he has to make sure to kill them quickly. It has a lesser effect on creatures with high intelligence, since they can cope with the mental pressure better.
The reason why this spell isn't overpowered is because if the victim hasn't been wounded by the daggers, Azah'lon can't use his ability at all. The spell is only an offensive skill, so it's not something he can abuse in everyday situations since it requires him to draw his blades.
NOTE: It may seem like many abilities, but they all rely on his weapons. If Azah'lon is out of position, out of range or hasn't wounded his enemy, he contributes very little to a fight.
Appearance: Being a half demon, Azah'lon has the physical appearance of a human, with the addition of horns and yellow eyes. However, Azah'lon is able to use metamorphosis to disguise himself as a normal human being in order to blend in with the surroundings.
NOTE: I don't consider metamorphosis an ability since he is a demon, therefore he can transform between human and his half demon form.
Bio: Azah'lon's true origin is unkown. The only thing that is certain is that he has been serving the Great Demon Monarch, Messor as an assassin for centuries. During the second battle for the Tree of Life, Messor was defeated and sealed by the Blessed Warrior Enoch. Staying loyal to his master, Azah'lon never lost hope that Messor would return and continued to fight for his master's cause. Together with a group of loyalists, he ravaged the lands, destroying everything in their wake and killing uncounted numbers. Now, the Great Demon Monarch is back and the battle for the Tree of Life may begin once more.

Nirxael doesn't know how old he is, having stopped counting centuries ago. It is obviously a vast number, however, since he has fought alongside Messor ever since the first attempt on the Tree of Life.
An axe-like longsword, almost the same size as Nirxael, modeled after a dragon in flight. Apparantly, it is crafted from the bones of the last Dragon, and is an extremely durable and destructive weapon.
Nirxael is able to conjure and manipulate Black Lightning, a Demonic form of energy. It crackles like lightning, hence the name. Nirxael typically forms it around his hands to create energy weapons, for hurl it as bolts.
Quite possibly one of the most cruel and sadistic individuals you will ever meet, Nirxael revels in Slaughter and Mayhem. He enjoys tormenting his foes, prolonging their death so he can squeeze every juicy ounch of misery from their battered bodies. His only loyalty is to Messor, and he harbors a great disgust of humans.
Nirxael Kan'Suad is one of Messor's most loyal and seasoned soldiers, having fought under him before the first battle for the Tree of Life. He share in Messor's vision for a Demonic World, one ruled by his kind.
After Messor was defeated by the Holy Blessed Warrior Enoch, Nirxael lead the surviving band of Loyalist, in attempting to resurrect their Monarch. After much killing and slaughter, he found what he needed. Messor's remains were sealed in a vast chamber beneath the Orlesia Castle. He learned that in order to reconstruct his Body, a blood sacrifice was needed. A blood sacrifice on a massive scale.
Nirxael now marches the Loyalist across the sea to Orlesia. They have torn thier way through the kingdom, killing many and enslaving more. The army stands at the gates to Merandor, their goal within arms reach.

Name: Known only as Berserker
Fraction: Reiksguard, technically.
Weapon(s): Extra arms.
Hypnotic eyes: Gazing into her eyes causes the victim to go into a lulled state. Victims feel a sense of security even as she [DATA REDACTED].
For Reiksguard eyes only:
This seems to only work on humanoids and the blind seem utterly immune to it.
Her claws secrete an unknown painkilling substance. It's so effective that pain is neutralized. The victim feels nothing as [DATA EXPUNGED] are removed. There are reports that even after [DATA REDACTED] victims were still very much alive.
Insanity: Oblivious to pain and immune to poisons and mind effects. As a downside, she has no sense of self-preservation. Unfortunately attacking her pisses her off and will likely get you killed first. (Not immune to dying though.)
Personality: Insane is a very light way of putting it. Extremely hostile towards everything living (or dead) she sees. If it has the shape of any form of animal, she will kill it. Friend or foe does not matter. Sadistic and likes to 'play' with her 'food'
Bio: [DATA EXPUNGED]
