Fictional Character Biography
Pre-Release Character History
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
The desire of power in excess caused the angels to fall.
Nazi Germany and WWII
When the Nazi flood came, you had a choice. You either sank into submission, or swam to Hitler's boat. I had been powerless once before, and wished naught but death on myself, so I swam.I swam and watched the weak drown beneath me.
(On Nazi Germany)
Post War Period
Mikail is slightly taller than average height with a fit appearance but rather thin. He has an unearthly green light glowing from his eyes from an unknown source. With every movement you would hear popping or cracking noises from his joints. He has a musky scent about him that's kind of like an old house but nowhere as strong,and his clothes appear very worn and very old, particularly his jacket. His outfit also has very old markings with possible magical significance. He always wears his Skull Mask which he will reference as his face. He absolutely leaks negative energy.
Mikail has an introverted personality. He is a loner, introspective, and self-contained. While he is a regular of the Pocket D he has a disliking for large crowds and will rarely start a conversation. He spends his time watching people and always seems to want to know more about the other patrons. Mikail tends to use logic and intuition to solve his problems and get his way. This means that when being constantly annoyed or threatened Mikail won't just murder or attack the aggravator. This also means that getting close enough to Mikail for him to care about you is difficult. Mikail is egotistic and self centered. Meaning that Mikail is in it for himself. This must never be forgotten. If it benefits him to murder or abandon you he will.
Mikail's solitary lifestyle makes determining his sexuality difficult. He never showed much interest in anyone of the same or opposite gender, and his overall contempt for love and affection makes forming any kind of relationship difficult. This is not to say that Mikail has not grown close to other people who share his goals, but he has never displayed any romantic or sexual intimacy towards them. For these reasons Mikail is considered asexual.
((Looking For Contacts!))
Mikail is somewhat of a loner type. Even when he was a member of a Villain Group he always preferred to be alone, making only a few friends/allies and answering only to the leader of the group. Mikail joins these groups to use their resources, learn what they know, and ultimately obtain more power through their and his schemes. Mikail believes that he is a fine addition to any Villain Group and this makes him very picky as to which group he affiliates himself with. He will not, after all, work for a fool or involve himself in a doomed project.
Mikail's talents are born from his obsession of magic. His constant research and practice have given him control over negative energy flow and complete understanding of many arcane languages. Mikail is Threat Level 50 but even though this is the highest achievable power level he is not content with what he knows. Mikail continues to observe other wells of magical power.
Negative Energy Blasts
Dark Blast, Moonbeam, Gloom, Nightfall, Torrent
Constant study and experimentation with the darker powers helped Mikail discover a terrible means of attack. By gathering up pure negative energy, Mikail can unleash a blast of dark energy which, upon hitting it's target, causes severe necrosis or breakdown at the cellular or molecular level. These attacks can easily eliminate Mikail's enemies and breakdown obstacles such as a bank vault or prison door.
By manipulating surrounding energy forces Mikail can lift himself up and fly through the air. He can remain in the air as long as nothing distracts him or he has enough energy to maintain control over the surrounding forces. If he becomes distracted or drained then Mikail will plummet back to the earth.
Portal magic and tampering with the emergency medical teleportation grids in Paragon City and The Rouge Islands have enabled Mikail to quickly teleport an endangered ally to safety to be resurrected or rescued from a powerful foe. This ability has made "playing medic" easy for Mikail.
Soul Drain, Dark Embrace, Soul Storm, Summon Mistress
Hoping to further understand and master the powers of the Netherworld, Mikail joined Arachnos and swore allegiance to Ghost Widow as his patron. She has taught him a number of her powers and helped him to further understand the mystery of death. She has also given Mikail command of one of her Fortunata Mistresses who will fight for the servant of her master.
Trivia, and ((RP)) Notes
- He likes cats and big dogs. He mourns the fact that he can never get to close to either without them going into a fit. Despite his liking for cats Mikail doesn't like cat-girls. He says, "They're too dependent on their sex appeal."
- His favorite music is instrumental music and show tunes.
- Mikail enjoys italian food above anything else. Few people know this because few people see him eat.
- Mikail rarely drinks. He sees alcohol for what it is, an impediment to rational thinking. When he does he likes white wine. Other times he drinks sweetened English Tea.
- Vaiknoras prefers to spend his time researching old powers. He believes the modern magician is lazy and sloppy.
- His favorite country is Ireland.
I've decided to place everything in this section thats important for communication.
- I have this horrible habit of missing things in local. If you try talking to me and I don't respond for a while please send me a tell. I want to RP, I promise.
- I take level into account. I absolutely refuse to be beaten up by a level 7 character. Threat and Security Level determines how much training your character has done and how far they've come in this world. Also god-moders will probably just be ignored. No one in this game is an Archvillain or giant monster so they shouldn't act like it.
- I rather dislike PVP and text fighting. I will do it if its crucial to a story line but i just think it's ridiculous most of the time. Don't start stupid fights in Pocket D. Bar Fights are just stupid.
- Telepaths should send a tell so they don't embarrass themselves. Any tell I receive that isn't in parenthesis i immediately assume to be telepathic communication.
- Can Sense Magic, Magical Items, and can also feel the presence of magical creatures. (He can tell based on your origin and character descriptions. Send me a tell if you'd like to start a conversation centered around your powers.)
- Aura readers will have a see a dark, murky energy radiate from Downs. This energy will also make your character feel emotional fatigue and possibly depression making it a very bad idea for Empath Aura readers to try reading his. The dark colors and the psychological effects of his aura is a reflection of Downs himself and the forces that give him power.
