Ryoko but currently goes by AresGender:
War (Deserted it)Alignment:
Chaotic Evil Zodiac Month:
Ares is an extremely selfish demon, following only her whims and those of the god she serves. She lacks discipline and tends to rampage, relishing the taste of blood and adrenaline pumping through her veins. She has killed allies mercilessly because they were “too weak to follow the purpose of the Goddess” and has thus been labelled a defector.
Ares is very social but a free spirit, she enjoys meeting many creatures, potentially killing some of them and wandering off again. She is very friendly, playful and always scheming. Fun-loving and always looking to start some trouble, the demon will often be found at large nighttime events where blood is involved, a largely populated city or roaming a war battlefield. Likes:
Ares loves chaos. She loves causing it, being in the middle of it and seeing the end result of it. If she sees a chance to make blood spill she will take it.
• Innocence/ Goodness:
As a demon, Ares hasn’t seen much “Good” on Kurai so it sparks an interest and curiosity in her. It also feels like a challenge to corrupt it.
Whether it is to train or a fight to the death, a good battle always gets a war demon’s blood flowing.
When darkness falls, as a user of Dark Magic, Ares thrives. It gives her a warm feeling in the pit of her stomach when she knows that some fear the time when the sun sets while others are just waking up.Dislikes:
It’s too…orderly. Rules are pain to follow. It reminds Ares of her parents and their strictness in bringing her up. She hates it with passion and will probably try to ruin it.
• The Sun:
Fire Magic and Light Magic counter Darkness. The sun is a great ball of fire in the sky which brings light and life. Therefore, it isn’t exactly pleasant.
• Other War Demons who are still in service of Neiren:
The chances are that she will be forced home and there will be more attempts to execute her. She has no issues killing them, but she does not want to attract Neiren’s attention.
Ares is tall 5’9 without heels and has long, straight red hair with eyes to match. Her skin is pale, and always contrasts the black clothing that she wears. Special Features:
• Ram horns that grow from behind her ears. The color starts off a pale grey and grows darker, reaching black at the tips of the horns. (usually hidden)
• A black tattoo representing the goddess Neiren rests on her lower back.
• Large black scaly bat wings which she hides away because they can be “inconvenient.”
• Black irises turn to slits on separate occasions. Background:
Ryoko grew up in the smaller War affiliated town Arashikami on Kurai. Her parents, being extreme followers of Neiren, decided that once their daughter was to reach the age of “freezing” they would brand her with tattoos of the worshipped goddess. She was taught from a young age the rituals of her kingdom, war strategies, battle stances and katan usage. She spent hours reading about and worshipping the goddess Neiren, just as her parents taught her.
At some point amongst the many years of existence Ryoko’s mother, who was a very powerful warrior, died from disease; this drove her father mad with rage. He slaughtered a few outcast demons and ultimately caused a scene in the normally peaceful Arashikami. He ultimately attempted to take out his anger on his only daughter before being slain by her. In a vast attempt to protect herself, Ryoko had accidentally called forwards shadows which materialized from the ground and sliced her father in half.
With the only two figures with power over her gone, the young demon looked to Neiren for help and participated in several wars, all of which she enjoyed. Over the years however, her dark magic potency twisted her into being unable to fully control herself on the battlefield. Shadows would twist out of control and hurt allies, and she wouldn’t mind it. In fact, she probably did it on purpose. To her, the weak didn’t deserve Neiren’s blessings. She became frowned upon by many army generals who believed that she was out of control and after warnings some high-end demons attempted to publically execute her. Ryoko escaped the execution narrowly and has since then left Kurai finding that her methods of “war” were not comprehensible to most there. She wanted more freedom with her worship, she wanted more blood and ultimately, she wanted fun. In order to not attract Neiren’s attention and wrath more than she already had, Ryoko took up the name Ares as she roamed around the realms.Abilities:
Ares is capable of utilizing Dark Magic which is largely influenced by the amount of light present wherever she is and the time of day. She is weakest during lunch time, when the sun is highest and can even faint if exposed to too extreme heat without protection. Fire, Light and Lightning magic tend to be extremely effective against her during day time.
On the other hand during night time, Ares thrives and her body is capable of completely becoming one with the shadows. This allows her to sink into the ground and move around walls. She is capable of utilizing the shadows around her consistently, although to a fairly weaker extent during day time. Shadows morph into solid spikes or weapons, or extensions of her limbs (but can occasionally cause damage to the owner if overused?)
Ares is also capable of utilizing Pure Dark energy, although that tends to be a more underdeveloped magic form for her. She is capable of focusing it into destructive spheres which she can throw around. The Demon is also capable of breathing darkness which allows her to she expel a powerful force of darkness in a conical shape in front of her. Pure dark abilities although very destructive, are only active during night.
As a war demon, which makes her very proficient in utilizing her strength, Ares is good at a couple of battle stances and can utilize a katana if needed to. Her weapon of choice would generally be her magic or strength. She carries around a Katana with an icy affinity that belonged to her mother due to its ability to expel out occasional cold winds and ice but never uses it and it occasionally ends up getting in the way.
