"Curiosity is a dangerous thing, you know?"
Birth Name: Tequila Fujimoto. What you think that to be a code name or something hiding my real one? Well it is not, so deal with it.
Aliases: Tiki. I am not too sure where this one came from to be honest, but if I had to make a guess it is more than likely because my first name was too odd for some to say without thinking of booze or people found it cute or whatever. Outside of that one, they also call me the Cheshire Cat or the Mad Artist, so that is a thing.
Gender: Male. What else is there to say?
Age: My actual age is 65, but looking at me I look like I am around 25.
Birth Day: Hmm. I can't remember the exact year, but I do know the creation date was Friday, 13th of January.
Arcana: Oh, this thing. Give me a second to look into my memory banks for it. *Processing...* Ah, here we go!
Faith, another Arcana without a number assigned to it, isn't part of the standard tarot deck, instead being associated with a precursor to the tarot, the visconti-sforza, which were primarily playing cards. Upright, it represents belief in others and in oneself, and in religion or science. On the other hand, reversed, it can represent blind faith misplaced in something that does not deserve trust. It can also mean false idols, or overconfidence.
Pros: Personas of the Faith Arcana endure through the power of their faith, an unquenchable flame they follow. Users have a latent 30% resistance to instant-kill effects.
Place of Residence: You really want to know this? Alright...fine. *sighs and gives a slight frown.* The planet I came from was called Persephone. It was a planet full of nature and peaceful folk that lived tough lives. It wasn't paradise, but it wasn't hell either. It became hell when the last of the Ruling Class dug into something that she shouldn't have and in turn ended up destroying the planet, transforming it into a wasteland. The planet still stands, but you'll only find the dead and malice there now a days....*He seems to be in thought and not willing to describe it further.*
Evoker: Built-In Persona Module
Occupation: Owner of The Mermaid's Tear Bar/Data Collector
I look sexy. I know, but let's calm down. While I am the definition of pretty boy, I am a pretty simple machine. I do wear jewelry ranging from earrings, necklaces, chokers, bracelets, rings and more. Most of these items change on occasion to match a look I want to pull off and I am not one to over do it by loading all types of said wear on me. I like simple designs that can be elegant in their own way. I do not need all that glitz and glam unless it is for a costume. I am not too picky about clothes choosing easy to move around in types that fit the style I like which typically has more personality than standard where. My hair is dark blue color and kept long and mostly in a ponytail to keep it out of my way. My skin is in the honey brown family and my eye that still exist is blue. The other eye is well gone and I typically cover it up by a patch. I could get it fixed, but leaving it there is a good reminder of things and keeps me from going to far into Lalaland and false hopes. As far as weight goes, I am heavy enough to not be knocked about easily, but not so heavy that someone with strength could not lift me or roll me over. Height wise I am 5'8". Also while I am a machine, I do carry tattoos on my back and other parts of my body. After all, the body is a canvas for art and stories too, no?
Personality: I am an artist who likes to do things like writing, painting, and such when I have time or feel like doing those things. I have a deep interest in exploring, data collecting, and also in various studies of both the religious, technological, and scientific to fuel my muse, my creations, and to deepen my connection and understanding of the spirits that are interwoven into the fabric of our world. I have a rather strong belief in spirits and truly believe they too add onto the entertainment value of the world. Though most would find me quite mad for thinking such things. After all, most of my "spirits" are seen by me alone and the only "proof" I have of them existing are the art pieces and data I've collected on them and their worlds over time. However, I will tell you now they are anything, but imaginary. Anyway...I can't get enough of the things I find both beautiful and horrific in the world. All of which are good materials for a good story, a haunting tune song, but above all else good entertainment.
I can be gentle, laid back, and generally welcoming to those that decide to come and hang with me. I am the sort that is easy to get along with if you stick around long enough, but also the sort that can easily ruffle feathers if you are the sensitive or aggressive type. I can be a loyal friend, but just as easily be your worse enemy. I don't run by the rules of the world, but rather by what I consider to be right or wrong. Not everyone agrees with me, but then again I really don't care as long as you aren't trying to harm myself or others because of it. I do like challenges of various kinds and fun in various degrees and forms. Sometimes I stir the pot and cause things to happen just to be entertained too. Despite my ways, I prefer if we aren't getting into brawls and bloodshed, okay? We can be civil and have fun, no?
When alone or perhaps just disturbed by one, you can find me doing various things, but mainly you'll find me with my guitar strumming a tune or two or maybe chilling with a drink as I observe the world around me. You'll almost always find a pure black wolf with green eyes with me named Lokita. She is the only thing I have that I can call a true friend and the only thing from home that survived the hell. In any case, I like peace and quiet, but don't mind a small disturbance of it if you did approach me.
I've been called many things in life, but outside of my more common nickname Tiki and Mad Artist, the other that commes up alot is the Cheshire Cat. The name fits considering to most I come off as engima. You could try to understand what makes me tick the way I do, but I wouldn't advise to do that. Surely it will just make your head explode and we don't want that now, do we? After all, I can't interact with you or be entertained if you are dead...and that would be a true tragedy.
Racial Bonus: Anti-Shadow Suppression weapons are lifelike humanoid (or alien shaped) robots, or androids, or toasters. Either way, these automated and self-aware robots have been built in order to harness the power of the Potential and help combat the threat of Anti-Space. However, being an ASSW in these times can be dangerous, as a hivemind of ASSWs intent on assimilating all life in the Post-World has been ravaging civilizations all over the place. This puts ASSWs in a spot of distrust but also even greater danger of being assimilated themselves.
[ASSW Characters gain the Orgia Mode, activated upon the activation of any of their Plugs' special skills]
Orgia Mode activates automatically (this isn't optional) when a special ability, such as the Order Persona Plugs' Fusion Attack or Weapon Persona Plugs' Last Life, is activated. Orgia Mode lasts 3 turns during which the user has full access to the currently equipped Plug's activated special ability (such as using the Fusion Attack up to 6 times instead of only once). Note that other Special Abilities cannot be activated during Orgia Mode or its overheating period, even if their requirements are met (such as Last Life’s HP threshold). Additionally, skill costs are halved (stacks with Shadow Massacre's cost halving ability), and user can take an extra action within the PvS combat phase. After Orgia Mode, the user suffers the full repercussions of their activated special ability on top of being unable to take any actions for 3 turns. Additionally, attacks against the user will have a 30% chance to knock them down while they're overheating from this enhanced Orgia Mode.
Upon reaching Level 35, Orgia mode can be upgraded into one of two new forms, branded as Hot and Cold Orgia Mode respectively.
—Strength Name: Spiritual
—Description: I told you before I have the ability to see things others cannot, did I not? Well, the things I can see are spirits or beings from other plains of existence. People have argued with me that they are not there, but I tell you what I see is real. They even talk and interact with me, whispering secrets to me that no one else knows. In fact, it is because of them I am so good at healing and also why I firmly believe there are greater beings at work in this universe and in the end come together to make everything tick. Note: "Spirit" does not equal the dead or spirits in the normal sense. While Tequila believes them to be higher beings at times, these spirits are more than likely some form of organism or alien species that he is encountering that have spirit like qualities.
Gives: +10% added to any healing spell and 15% add to any healing item he uses.
—Strength Name: Storyteller and Musician
—Description: While I love all forms of art the thing I specialize is storytelling and music. These are the two things that can spark the imagination quicker than the written word or something drawn physical. It is a universal language that any can understand. I tell my stories out loud to those that would listen. Some are truths and some are fairytales and fantasy. Even if you don’t understand the words being said, the music will take you for the ride. I’ve fine-tuned the art to a point where as long as I can play a tune or tell a story, I can soothe those that need a safe refuge from the hell that is life sometimes. Give them a place of rest and escape.
—Strength Name: Data Collector
—Description: To say that I am lover of information would be understatement. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve lost hours upon hours digging into every book or computer I could access or make my own way into. My favorite topics typically revolve around religions, technology and science. Due to the fact that I love data, I am really good at digging and figuring out things that others may simply give up on. I don’t believe in unsolvable. There is always an answer. You just sometimes have to look outside of the box and at the whole matter from different angles is all.
—Strength Name: Nature Connected
—Description: Plants, animals, insects, etc. All things that are part of nature bring a calm to me unlike any other. I like being out in it. In a forest listening to the birds or on the beach listening to the waves. I love it all to be honest and connect with it on a level where I can hear whispers from it and communicate with almost as well as I can communicate with the spirits. Despite being man made, nature is where I feel most at home and I suppose that is why I get along better with animals than I do with anything else around me. At least they get me and don’t write me off as mad because I am different or strange by society’s standards.
—Strength Name: Take a Stand
—Description: While I am by no means a hero or a fighter, but I am not afraid to take a stand and fight for something. Whether it is through a performance or actually participating in something, I do what I believe is right and will not falter even in the face of disagreement or potential death.
((A floating Strength is a strength you've gained inRP. For example, if you were on a Kendo team for some time, you'd naturally know Kendo which is where this strength would come in. However, be aware, it will not be as strong as any of your actual strengths and is a small plus.)
—Floating Strength Name: TBA
—Weakness Name: Mad Man
—Description: My deep belief in the spirits, my way of thinking and doing things combined with my strange behavior make people think I am quite mad and at times they will not take me very seriously. It is annoying, especially when matters are indeed serious. On top of this because I am oh so mad, clearly that means I cannot be trusted in any way either. Not that I make the trust part any easier for most.
—Weakness Name: Cheshire Cat
—Description: I have the tendency to not exactly be the most loyal when it comes to just simply knowing people or the most predictable when it comes to moods. Just as quickly as I become friendly with you, I could easily turn against you or make you some performer in a show to entertain myself. Or go from very sweet to very cruel in a blink of an eye. As a result, I guess you can say becoming true friends with me can be quite the challenge, even more so since I typically do not trust or connect easily with others myself.
—Weakness Name: Doesn't Hurt
—Description: I may be good at magic, but when it comes to the strength of my strike within battle, well it certainly is lacking I will say that much. I may be rather sturdy and metallic underneath, but I wasn’t designed to fight or deal damage in the first place.
Gives: -15% to Dex attacks.
—Weakness Name: Collapse
—Description: It is unfortunate when you are a like me: a being with high stamina and energy, but with no way to gauge when enough is enough. Being what I am, I do not feel exhaustion in the same way as a human or being with that sort of function would. Due to this, I never knows how seriously tired I truly am until my body collapses. It is not uncommon to find me collapsed or sleep somewhere due to over doing it in some fashion. Unfortunately for me this state puts in a terrible position since I cannot do much of anything until my body has rested.
—Weakness Name: Too Focused
—Description: If I find something super juicy, interesting, or it simply has just enough challenge that I will not give up on figuring it out, I can and often do get very absorbed in my work or study completely tuning out the world and people making me seem rude or inconsiderate at times, especially when someone is trying to get my attention. On top of that it makes it easy for something to sneak up on me and I not realize it until the last second. So much fun I tell ya, but the bright side is I can remain pretty focused and calm in crisis so there is that.
((A floating weakness is one gained in RP. It could be a fear you inherited during RP, or an injury that hinders your character. Some can be temporary while others can be permanent. Do note: if you do something stupid that would sensibly get your character screwed, you WILL earn yourself one of these bad boys!)
—Floating Weakness Name: TBA
Soul Bound Weapon: (This is the weapon you'll be able to summon to your hand while in combat. This weapon is special for your character specifically and allows you to fight Shadows and Demons without the need of summoning your Persona. This can be anything but a Gun (Or gun related weapon))
Weapon Name: Siren's Call
Weapon Description: My weapon appears as a harp made up of a pair of snakes one white and the other black that are intertwined with each other. Their heads rest at either end of the U shape the harp creates. These snakes are alive with eyes that glow with a turquoise power. That same turquoise energy flows to form the harp's strings that when strummed certain ways can command the plugs I use and when strummed another way it will send out blades of turquoise energy to slay enemies in the blades' path.
Weapon Image: Why must I provide a picture when I did this in words? You humans confuse me sometimes.
Weapon Attack Type: Slash
Weapon Element: (Leave this blank. Only special weapons obtain an element behind its blows.)
Side-Arm Name: Andromeda
Side-Arm Description: Andromeda is a custom designed hand gun that has the white skulls surround by red flower petals in an ocean etched into it. The gun ends with a chain on the handle that holds a small pendant of a mermaid holding a skull at the end. This gun is designed to hold 13 bullets, a number I find lucky. While I do not care for weapons, I can appreciate the craftsman's efforts and love placed into this item.
Side-Arm Attack Type: Gun
Side-Arm Style: Revolver - Single Shot - Accuracy is increased by 20%. Consumes only one type of ammo per use. Can shoot only one enemy at a time.
History: *Strums his guitar a bit before looking up at you.* Curiosity is a dangerous thing, you know? I don’t like to share my past or talk about my home planet because I don’t like remembering such things....or the sadness that comes with it. So I’ll tell you this.
I don't know exactly who created me because when I woke up they were already dead and way pass recognizable in the decay department. From the journals, pictures, and books I did find, I've come to the conclusion that my creator was a woman and researcher that had big dreams of trying to solve some form o crisis on the planet. I believe the drive for her was related to perhaps the loss of a child and husband to said issue? It is hard to say since there are pieces missing or incomplete making the full story hard to see. Anyway, her purpose for me was data collecting and research. It does explain why I feel most comfortable when I am doing exactly that or working towards some great discovery. She put that in me, but also gave me some ability to choose things I liked for myself. Which is nice, but she didn't give me any guidance or programming on how to deal with or process emotions both within me or coming from others.
I did not have a name, but rather took the last name of my creator which was Fujimoto. Maybe some part of me wanted that connection to something like a family...even though I did not have one to call my own. As for the name Tequila, I took that from a bottle I found within the home because I liked the sound of it. Regardless of that, I went from being inside to being outside. I remember spending most of the day outside in nature and enjoying it deeply before going inside around night fall and studying the notes and books there until early morning and restarting the whole routine again. I spent a good many months at that house in the woods, studying and discovering things about myself and the world around me.
It didn't long to discover that I could see and interact with the spirits of the area. Nor did it take me long to get along with them and see them as friends more so than foes. There were some that were bad, but not all. They expanded my knowledge, introducing me to magic and art and in turn music. All of which I found I strongly liked and enjoyed as much as nature. I found song and music the most fun of them all. These new found hobbies and beings became deeply interwoven in my life forming my strong foundation. It was about a year later that, I ran across a wolf pup with green eyes. She was unusual and alone like myself and maybe that is why I took her in and decided to make her part of my life too. We got along well enough despite the fact she was indeed still wild and she liked the spirits and my music, so we all became our own strange pack and family. We were happy though and when it was time to move elsewhere, we moved from the forest and into human territory.
Humans were a strange thing to me. They had many qualities I liked, but others I hated. It was from humans that I learned cruelty and that sometimes to be happy or make fairness in the world was to go against the norm, be selfish, be you and not move for anyone. I struggled to live amongst them for the first few months, but quickly caught onto what they did like and didn't allowing me to adapt myself so I could be safe and still entertained within reason of course. While humans were and still are the most confusing of creatures to me, they aren't always horrible so I learned to tolerate them and some I truly did like; however, I learned that giving my trust too easily would lead to pain and suffering.
The last of Ruling Class? I was pretty close to her, you know? She gave me a place to call home when I had none on the condition I simply be the storyteller and musician of her courts. I had access to anything I wanted and could go where I wanted. She even allowed Lokita, my wolf, and the spirits in out of her home. She didn't seem to judge me and seemed to truly love her people. However...Pretty faces and kind words can often hide demons and monsters much worse than the ones we imagine or create from ink or paint.
The Last of the Ruling Class...she dug deep into the darkness behind her people's back. Kept secret of her evil deeds and lust for absolute power. She cut a deal with the demons telling them she would give them whatever they wanted in return for absolute power. They took her offer and indeed gave her power. In return, she gave them all of the life on the planet.
*Falls silent for a moment tapping the end of his guitar a bit before shaking his head to clear it before continuing.*
...I tried to save them...I thought if I destroyed the source it would stop....but it didn't. I killed her and got rid of the demons, but their poison was so deep that it took out the remaining humans on the planet leaving only me, the spirits, and Lokita alive. The place was a wasteland and uninhabitable, but it had enough things left over from the humans for Lokita to survive off of. I wanted away from that place so it was only natural when a ship came by offering me said escape, I and my whole pack got on board to move to hopefully a better place than that which we left.
