Disappear into light!!
Hurmm, let me get this straight.

The Specters' soul, all 108 of them, are sealed up, and by the time of this story is already loose, and like Hades, they posses normal human bodies and use them as a vessel.

So they were all the same people,just different bodies. For example the Three Judges of Hell are the same "souls" but inhabit different hosts. Am I right? Also, will they appear in Omega?

Specters are reincarnated along Hades (the seal placed on their souls will only hold for about 200 years), but they don't posses normal human, people simply "awaken" to their Specter persona.

In Lost Canvas, when they awaken as Specters they take the name of the original ones, but in Next Dimension (canon prequel to the original manga) they keep their own names (in fact the Garuda Specter in there used to be the Crateris Silver Saint before awakening). We'll use that system in the RPG.

I really doubt that they will appear in Omega.

Name: Muramasa

Age: 30

Designation: Capricorn Saint

Element: Earth

Appearance:

Story: The son of a Cancer Gold Saint and an Ophiuchus Silver Saint. Despite having been born in a time of relative peace in the world, there was no question on anyone's mind that Muramasa would grow up to become a Saint. Due to a Saint's dangerous life, it is rare, specially for a Gold Saint, to have children, so for the Sanctuary the infant Muramasa accepted with open arms by the entire order. Even as a young child, Muramasa was allow to watch other Saints, including the Gold, spar and trained. Having such magnificent role models to look up to help him grow up until the perfect son, smart, obedient, and responsible, capable, and strong. At the age of eight years old, Muramasa was enrolled in the Palaestra where he quickly rise up in the ranks both in the academic front and the practical front. Muramasa was not exactly a kind or warm student in the school, but he his sturdy and reliable aura soon earned him a high level of popularity with both his classmates and teachers. After a mere two years in the Palaestra, one of the constellations acknowledged Muramas, but may were surprise when it turned out to be the Cepheus constellation, thus making the young boy a Silver Saint at the young age of 10 and without ever being a Bronze Saint first.

Despite being a Silver Saint and thus formally recognized as a warrior for the Sanctuary, meaning that he did not have to continue his studies in the Palaestra, Muramasa continued to return to the school to help others with their training. It was not long before gossip started to go around both the school and the Sanctuary about how the young boy should become the Pope, the leader of the Sanctuary, once he grew up. As the years passed, Muramasa watched the Sanctuary flourish like never before. Thanks to the brief period the number of Saints was able to increase, the Palaestra had more times to teach the young students, and all the seats among the Gold Saints were filled for the first time in decades. During that time, Murasama's Cosmo kept on growing stronger and he was viewed as one of the most powerful Silver Saints in the Sanctuary history. Murumasa thought nothing about the gossips about him, neither the one about his strength nor the one about becoming a Pope, and he did not become compliant with the easy times like the rest of the Saints. For Muramasa, the only thing that mattered was the Sanctuary and ensuring that the Order will continued into the future. For that, Muramasa kept on getting stronger and helping others follow suit, so that when peace finally broke out, the Sanctuary would be ready and it would endure.

It turned out that Muramasa's predication was right. When he was 17 the war against Mars broke out, and despite the young Silver Saint's best efforts during the last couple of years, the Sanctuary was not ready for it. The initial attack by Mars' forces left the Saints wounded, confused, and some even scared. Muramasa was called to the Sanctuary were the Pope informed him that his father had been the first casualty of the war. To make matters worse, Muramasa's mother took the news of her husband's death overwhelmingly bad, being shock to the point that she could no longer use her Cosmo, thus being no longer abet to be a Saint. Muramasa was infuriated, but not at Mars and his army, but at his father for dying so pathetically, at his mother for crumbling so easy, and the Sanctuary for being this weak. to retaliate, the Sanctuary sent the Capricorn and a group of Silver Saints, including Muramasa, to launch an attack against Mars' forces. The Pope had misjudged Mars' force and the Saints were overwhelmed by sheer numbers. The other Silver Saints saw the Capricorn Saint fall in battle, the panicked and started to run. Enraged and not believing the cowardice of his comrades, Muramasa decided to stay and fight the giant army, opting to died with his pride than live without honor, it was then that the Capricorn Cloth reacted to him and made the young man its new Gold Saint. By the time the Sanctuary forces returned with reinforcements, all they found was Capricorn Muramasa standing as the only living soul remaining in the battlefield.

After the war, Muramasa was left disillusioned with the Sanctuary and its Saints. During the next 13 years, the man's view continued to soured as he watched the place he was love continue to limp on as a shell of its former self. So, by the time Hades' tempting words reached his ears promising him to restore the Sanctuary to its former glory and strength and to ensure its future, Muramasa graciously accepted them. When Hades launched his attack on the Sanctuary and its loyal Gold Saints, Muramasa took it upon himself to personally kill the Pope as a show of loyalty to his new master.

Muramasa's Cosmo feels massive, heavy, and unmovable. Like a giant mountain that clouds out the sun.

Special Techniques:
Excalibur: An attack does not relay on any element and instead uses sheer strength of Muramasa's cosmos releasing a enormously strong and incredibly sharp wave of energy at whatever direction Murasama slash with either one of his arms.

Balmung: Muramasa touches the ground, causing an upheaval of the ground beneath his opponents' feet. It can be the as small, and sharp rocks that rips opponents to shreds, or large boulders that pulverize the target.

Kusanagi: A technique developed after Muramasa was granted Darkness Cosmo by Hades. It creates a dark ethereal blade for Muramasa to wield. The sword does not have a definite physical form so it can extend in size or width, and even wrap around targets. Being wounded by the sword causes instability in the victim's Cosmo.

Well I would approve him! Looking forward to the inevitable fight he and Sigurd will have. That is somthing for us to discuse Galaxian at some point.

Working on Clair's attack and I added a discription of her cosmo. I am going to try my hardest not to make too many references to Poe and a certain DC hero, but no promises.

Oh! Spectres! Neat.

Clair's skills are up. Huzzah!

[hide] Special Techniques:

Gust: Sends darts of compressed air from the tips of Clair’s fingers to pierce an opponent from a distance. While accurate and easy to use, the technique isn’t very powerful and is used more against unarmed or unprepared foes, as well as a means to distract or maneuver a foe into a certain position.


Gale: Uses wind cosmo to increase the power of Clair’s attack. The technique can be used to make her attacks pierce or slash a foe more ably while also allowing her to discharge her cosmo to blow an opponent away. Clair can use this technique rather passively and it consumes very little cosmo on her part.


Murder: Clair spreads a pair of black wings made form Cosmo that erupt into a murder of ethereal crows that peck and gash opponents until they are reduced to bones. Others might call it a recruitment drive for Hades’ forces if not for Clair’s insistence of using it against only those she feels deserve such a brutal end.


Morrigan: When Clair’s fury reaches its highest, her black wings spread, her right eye glows red, and her cloth turns solid black with small flares of black cosmo sparking from her body. At first it seems nothing much has changed, until the first of her foes falls with a dozen shadow lances riddling their body. In this state, Clair has shut off most of her emotions and devotes her entire being into killing the foes before her. Her Gale technique is even sharper and she can produce thin lances of black cosmo that can be used at close range or thrown for a long range attack. She is constantly surrounded by a wind wall that lacerates anyone or anything that gets to close to her. Her physical and cosmo based abilities are boosted to some extent as she burns her cosmo almost constantly. Her wings constantly grow smaller as she fight signifying the burning of her cosmo, and for this reason she cannot use her Murder technique. After the ability deactivates, she is left mentally and physically weary and often needs a good day or two in order to recover.


Nevermore: Perhaps Clair’s most powerful and deadly technique, it is one she uses lightly and often does not use to full effect. By placing her hand on a victim’s chest she can use precise control of wind cosmo to vacuum out the air in the lungs. She can use this to knock the air out of their lungs, or even suffocate them. Usually, however, she can’t stand the look in her victim’s eyes and simply ends at leaving them half dead or unconscious. When she is desperate enough, however, she can use this ability to drag out their cosmo as well, breathing it in herself to restore her own strength. She isn’t fond of this tactic as it is an unnatural feeling, and the amount of cosmo gained from it is only whatever was in the victim’s lungs at the time. Most likely, Clair could use this most effectively while kissing an enemy, but such a “kiss of death” doesn’t sit well with her, and she has yet to attempt such a tactic. With time she may even be able to use this ability at a distance or over a wide area against multiple opponents, but as she has only recently developed the technique it will most likely be some time before she develops such a version.

Now what else can I Leroy Jenkins today?

Yeah, I decided that he would be perfect for it even before finishing the bio.

It's fine :)

===

There is something I want to do... Characters in the series tend to say something right before they power-up for their finishing move it's composed of "[VERB]! My Cosmo!".

The most common one is "Burn! My Cosmo!", but there are some Saints that have a "custom" battle cry. For example, the Dragon Saint says "Boil, my Cosmo!" and the Wolf Saint uses "Howl! My Cosmo!"

So I thought that we would have battle cries for your characters. These are optional, you can just the basic "burn" one or none at all.

Azure: "Awaken! My Cosmo!"

Muramasa: "Burst through, my Cosmo!"

So kind of like the Zanpakuto releases? Neat, I love trying to figure out stuff like this...or rather it gives me somthing to do when i should be posting over at knights. -_- I will get to it...I will...

Roland: "Ignite! My Cosmo!" (With a smile on his face)

Cam: "Strike the Sky! My Cosmo!" (With a smile on her face)

Sigurd: "Slash! My Cosmo!" (With passion!)

Clair: "Vicerate. My Cosmo." (Whispered)

-------

While we are at it, why not go all out with theme songs and our choice of voice overs for our characters? I can't put up youtube stuff until i get home, but it could be fun and give us a better idea of what our characters sound like and feel like. Or is that to taky? I can never tell...

For instance Clair would sound alot like Oichi from Sengoku Basara. Mamiko Noto or Laura Baily's version. Take your pick.

Tempted to have Sigurd voiced by Liam O'Brien, in the wasy he voiced Kain in Final Fantasy Dissidia.

Probably go with Katsuyuki Konishi, the guy who does Toshiie Maeda's voice in Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi to voice Roland. That or The voice actor that did Hanbei.
Edit: HA! Turns out Katsuyuki did the voice for Lionet Soma in Omega! HAHA!

That leaves Cam...I guess Masami Suzuki who voiced Kaihime in Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi. Starting to see a pattern here guys?

I'll get the theme songs up later and they will hopfully be more deferce then my choice of voice actors. Not a single Steven Blum...I should be ashamed of myself...

I should have asked this earlier.

So, for the Specters, I assume they will use Dark elemental Cosmo? What about the three Judges? Can they have an extra element?

Either Hikaru Midorikawa or Miyano Mamoru for Julian's voice(which is weird since they're both in Omega, playing against type). Or Crispin Freeman.

Well, Kubo addmited that he took a lot of inspiration from Saint Seiya when coming up with Bleach :169:

Yes, it will be the same as the Gold Saints.

Finally. This has been a long time coming.

Name: Ilusad

Age: 30

Designation: Griffin Specter

Element: Dark and Light

Appearance:[hide]

[/hide]

Story:[hide]Ilusad spent the entirety of his early life in the service of the Holy Church and going on pilgrimages to the Holy Grounds, having been adopted and raised by an old priest, who found him at his doorstep. By the age of 17, he already graduated from a prestigious theological college as a valedictorian, and is well on his way to become a cardinal, but choose to be a lowly priest in a nondescript church, located in a war torn country. There, he helped save hundreds of lives, and preached to the refugees to hold on to hope and salvation. His deeds were so great the people had come to call him a "saint".

However, he had never gained any sense of fulfillment in his life, no passion or happiness, or even comfort and satisfaction over his achievements and the many lives he helped as a priest. Instead, he felt drawn to negative emotions, and has a fascination of other people's suffering and pain. He can only revel and feel truly alive by witnessing and committing sins and unspeakable evil to his fellow man, woman, and children. He fervently turn to religion and prayed, hoping God would bring him salvation and forgive his wickedness.

But he never received his salvation. At the brink of despair and guilt from the various heinous crimes he committed for pleasure, he attempted to take his own life by staking himself. Finally, at the verge of death, he heard a voice, calling to him and praising him for his deeds...his wicked deeds and the sins he is so ashamed of. His senses suddenly detect a powerfully majestic and divine, but unfathomably evil presence. He was repulsed, but in the same time blissful and elated as his consciousness acknowledge the presence as the "god" he was waiting for, who had finally answered him.

The voice directed Ilusad to find "him", or more precisely, his vessel in this world, a pure-hearted young man, and it awakened within him a mysterious power that saved and healed him before vanishing. Given this proof of the entity's potency and power, his convictions bloomed, and he eagerly set off on his "pilgrimage".

After seven days, and a hundred lives killed using the power "blessed" upon him, he finally found the vessel, and met his god; Hades. He cried in happiness and rejoiced as he prostrated before the deity, truly overjoyed over his "salvation". He was granted the Griffin Surplice, and at that point, all shreds of humanity, if there is still any, was gone.

As the Griffin Specter, Ilusad is one of the three Judges of Hell, the most powerful of the Celestial Star Specters, and the leaders of Hades' army. His power lies in the Celestial Noble Star, and, unbelievably, he controls both the Dark and Light elemental Cosmo. He now serves as Hades' emissary, searching and wakening the other Specters, raising his army of Skeletons from living or dead bodies, reaching out to potential traitorous Saints to join Hades and allowing them to commune with the deity, and keeping Hades' vessel hidden and taken care of. He is the only one who has ever been face to face with Hades and knew the identity of his vessel. [/hide]

Notes: Not a villainous or malicious person but definitely evil. Derives a sick and twisted enjoyment out of witnessing other people's suffering, pain, anguish and despair, but does not actively seek to inflict them. Can appear to be totally deranged, but is actually very logical. Highly resourceful and intelligent, and can very manipulative and convincing. Fiercely loyal and devoted to his lord.

Special Techniques: Coming soon.

Really like the character. I'm a fan of the "evil priest" archetype... Except in galgames because then the whole thing turns NTR and... That's off topic...

*Clears throat* Unfortunately, I cannot readily accept the bio because the other Specters won't be in until later... But I think we can find a role for Ilusad now...

What do you have in mind, exactly? I'm all ears.

Have him out of his Surplice (the Specter's armor) as Hades right-hand man. Only later to be revealed as the Griffin Specter.

===

This has nothing to do with the RPG, but it's something I made for the anime...

Ah yes, that's a good idea. So in the beginning, he's just a mysterious priest who served as Hades' emissary and right hand man, but is never involved in active combat, and is not seen as much of a threat. Only much later in the RPG that he's revealed to be a Specter and gets into the action.

Also, nice mv. Well done. I really like how the scenes were constructed following the 02 OP. Thinking about it, the concepts of SSO and Digimon 02 are quite similar.

Sorry for the super long delay... internet and phone went down for 2 days. Posting Dragon Bio now (as not to hold everyone up.) Leo is still being tweaked.

=========================

Name: Aeron
Age: 18
Designation: BronzeDragon Saint (Water)
Appearance: [HIDE]
Aliah-1.jpg
[/HIDE]
Story: The second son born to the legendary Leo Gold Saint Marduk, Aeron showed little cosmic affinity toward fire. Instead his cosmos burned brightest toward water. A disappointment to his father (who had hoped to pass the cloth to Aeron in the future), the boy was sent to train under the Pisces Gold Saint who had acquired the Dragon Cloth. In reality Aeron had been born under the sign of Pisces (another setback in Marduk's mind) but this was kept secret.

Training under the saint was harsh. The waterfalls of Rozan though clear and serene, would become veined with red throughout the years. Pisces showed no mercy toward the boy. Evoking his fathers name simply resulting in punishment and a harsh reminder that Aeron is a disappointment. Told the first day that failing to unlock his cosmos would result in his father disowning him (with a veiled threat that Marduk would kill him). Aeron quickly learned to distance himself from his 'false' family and turn inward to his 'true' family, the Dragon Star.

Several years would pass and even Pisces would be impressed with the boys progress. Aeron had a very analytical mind and could understand the basics of techniques simply by viewing them. His skills in battle had been refined to a level normally seen in silver saints. The final test would come from an outsider, 'Tiger' who sought power and would use any means to obtain it. Ambushed while training Aeron and 'Tiger' battled, eventually tumbling into the waterfalls. Swept downstream but still under 'Tigers' onslaught, Aeron would finally explode his cosmos outward and defeated 'Tiger' with a powerful uppercut.

Pisces arrived in time to stop Aeron from killing 'Tiger' (in reality Pisces' nephew sent as a check on the boys progress) and was granted the Dragon Cloth. Upon hearing of Sanctuary's attack and the loss of several gold saints, Aeron was distraught at the realization of being denied the right to prove his power to his father.

Special Techniques:

Dragon Fang: Aeron charges his cosmos into his hand and unleashes a flurry of 100 blows that damage the body in a form that the opponents seems to have been mauled by a beast. Can be 'upgraded' to Double Dragon Fang by channeling to both hands and jumping into the air to attack.

Aqua Bullet: Summons a storm of water and unleashes a flurry of punches and kicks while moving toward the foe.

Dragon's Eye: Aeron is resisted to mental attacks to do his eyes having a special cosmos layer.

Rising One Hundred Dragons: Aeron explodes his cosmos much as possible while throwing at the enemy with arms and palms outstretched, a horde of 100 Dragons appear behind him, across the sky and the enemy is destroyed by the dragons that cross it everywhere.

Special Notes:

Aeron is close to mastering a powerful skill (below) and despises his older brother.

Seventh Sense: A true understanding of Aeron's Cosmos from years of channeling it inward as a form of comfort.

LOL to be honest, the picture didn't fit with his profile. When I saw the picture, I thought he was going to be a hot-headed firebrand, which he is not. I'm just saying, though, so no need to change it on my account =) .

Lol. That smirk hides a wide range of things Guardian07 :169:

The hotheaded firebrand will be the older brother (Perseus cloth) who desperately covets his fathers Gold Leo. Seeing his young brother as weak (and unknowingly help to groom his power) and frequently tormented him (expanded on in bio).

Well Ilusad will be on pretty much all my characters' combined **** lists. Except maybe Cam...for reasons I can't say.

Aeron seems like a cool guy. Rough life yeah, but I'm sure Sigurd will relate well enough. His relationship with Roland ought to be alot of fun though. Lionet saint, supposed reincarnation of a Leo Saint from long ago, at the same time the supposed incarnation of Apollo, etc. etc. Hmmm actually it could be ALOT of fun...

Approved.

However, two things. First, all the active Gold Saints that did not sided with Hades were killed during the invasion, that would include the Pisces Saint that trained Aeron. Second, I have to ask you to make it that he hasn't mastered the 7th Sense yet (he can be close to), that's Gold Saint level of power and the Bronze Saints will need to work up their way there.


Rising One Hundred Dragons: Aeron explodes his cosmos much as possible while throwing at the enemy with arms and palms outstretched, a horde of 100 Dragons appear behind him, across the sky and the enemy is destroyed by the dragons that cross it everywhere.

Yay, Rozan's One Hundred Dragons! I loved that technique in the series.

===

Since all the Bronze Saints are up, I will be starting the RPG tomorrow. So get your last minute details for you characters done (of course you will be able to continue doe so throughout the RPG) :thumbs:

Finally found a theme song for Azure...
