EDIT 4.3.2013.: Updated profile pic, new look and hair style, with Mugen High clothing. Changed some details in description. Detailed look on her hair style will be better seen in future artwork with her.
Added one important detail: tiny orb around her neck, used to summon Jasmin (Fairy, the gate keeper of Aya's home world) when placed into water. This might not seem important but for Aya it's a "key" to her home world she HAS to visit every once in a while (resulting her missing some classes). The reason is because she has a "job" back home, keeping things in order between two world, Earth and Dimension 3, that are always in contact with one another.
EDIT: Made a better picture with different clothes, changed the name and info about her ability and added some details about her weapon, Sunas character and additional info.
Full drawing is here: [link]
Brace yourselves, a wall of text is coming...
This is for
probably the only group I will be a part of from now on.
Name: Aya Akuisamu
-Height: 168cm (5.6 feet)
Good with a pencil, not bad with simple cooking, knows a bit of kick-boxing.
-Home world and time:
Earth (one of many different universes of it), present time (21st century)
-Weapon (if any), magical items, or pets:
Ayas use of weaponry purely depends on her ability (which will be explained bellow). Generally she is currently not so skilled but will learn to use different kinds and types of weaponry in order to advance in her ability as well. Similar info related to the item.
Here current and only weapon she can always rely to are two blades formed out of her Dream creature (and a protector), Suna. The blades resemble Sunas head have sharp edges on bot sides of the blades. The two blades "float" next to Ayas arms and can "detach" when used to attack from distance.
Though Suna can’t physically exist on Earth she is behind Ayas every step. She takes form of a ghostly/spirit creature in worlds where there is very little lose magic (such as Earth). Her body can exist only in dimensions where there is enough magical influence or world with creatures similar to her (Ayas dreams or Dimension 4).
Aya was born with ability so see spirits/souls (from still living creatures/people) or ghost (dead creatures/people). Though her vision is not very good she is able to see magical and spiritual energy, something normal people can’t see, even look into ones soul trough eye contact.
The reason she is able to do this is because of her power of spiritual shape manipulation and recreation known as Spirit Forging. Such people are called either Spirit Forgers or Soul Blacksmiths. As you may guess from the name, she is allowed to use a spirit of a mythical/legendary/magical creature (only if the spirit giver is willing to do so) and shape them into materialized weapons, armor or item. The weapons (or armors and irems) shape, type, size and ability depends from the creatures type, size, power level (the higher it is the harder is to control the weapon) and even its personality.
Her ability appears as a blue transparent breath (also named Breath of Anima, it's powered by her own soul and ability) which she either blows directly at the creatures spirit/soul or charges onto her own hands. The spirit of the creature and Breath fuse, then Aya is able "forge" the weapon out of it trough body motion (with hands or arms), shaping it into the weapon.
Note that Aya doesn’t instantly gain the skill to use the weapon but she is influenced by its magic and gains a minor power boost (like a bit of strength in order to hold and handle larger heavier weapons or protection against stronger blows), the way of use of the weapon rests on her current knowledge and skill.
When using Suna, who is her only reliable weapon because of her adaptation toward Ayas abilities and skill, she can form two detachable blades shaped as Suna’s head and jaws. She can use those for both attack (cutting, swiping, pinching etc.) and defense (blocking with blades, using Sunas scarf that are around her arms as a shield).
Suna is technically part of Ayas soul and because of that Aya is allowed to fuse their spirits and help Suna materialize as her own creature in a place where there is little magical influence but at the cost of her own body shape. Ayas body changes into Sunas original form (dream creature), their spirits share the same body and mind (becoming one). However, the two avoid doing this unless it’s really necessary, the reason is the low profile that should be kept on Earth as well as avoiding horrible headaches that occur after returning back to normal selves.
At first glance Aya appears as she constantly stares into nothing, with cold expression that seems like she doesn’t pay much attention to anything or anyone while it’s actually the opposite. She’s a listener and an observer, calmly paying attention to things around her, as well as things other people can’t see themselves. While growing up she wasn’t bullied or hurt by others too much but she was often left behind because of her strange look and behavior while at some point she chose to be that way by refusing to be around others. Because of this Aya was lightly socially awkward but as she grew her self-confidence did as well and was able to normally communicate with people around her (especially when her grandfather passed away). Despite that she has little friend Aya is not bothered by this, actually prefers it this way because she enjoys her moment of solitude, listening to music and, again, observing the world around her.
When around friends or people she can be silly but quiet, getting a good laugh out of her can prove to be a real task. Even so, she enjoys company of those close to her and is very loyal to them.
Shouting is something Aya does only when letting her emotions get the best of her, though that rarely happens, once it does it’s somewhat out of her control, not easy for her to stop and think things trough before making a mistake. This usually happens once someone close to her is involved. Otherwise she is always quiet, when in argument or not, she will stay calm and think things trough.
She is shy when meeting someone for the first time, also avoids getting into things where she assumes she shouldn't be part of. Rarely makes an eye contact with people.
During her stay at Mugen-High, her personality will change toward more confident one.
Aya grew up with both of her parents and an older brother. As a kid her parents would often think she was acting a bit strange, often saying she saw a monster on a street or at home etc. Her brother was very close to her until both grew up into teenagers; afterwards they both went their separate ways.
With her parents always being busy with their job they didn’t had much time to be around Aya which is why she looked for company at her grandfathers place she often visited after school. To her it seemed that her grandfather understood her most, being a carefree man who liked to enjoy life and freedom, Aya found to share the similar interest and perspective of life. He always tended to encourage Aya in things when ever she felt a bit of doubt. Aya never told him about her ability to see spirits but it sometimes seemed as her grandfather knew about it somehow.
Once her grandfather passed away she wasn’t discouraged, a bit lonely but for a person she still looked up to, Aya didn’t let his death get the best of her. After a bit she decided to live in the same house, work at her uncles printing company and earn just enough for living.
When she turned 17 she met Suna for the first time. Though Aya would notice her in earlier days, she never really made contact with any of the strange creatures’ sprits she saw. Suna was the first one, explaining Aya a bit more about herself and the things she kept seeing around. Suna told her about Spirit Fusers, people such as her that are rare, represent a type of guardians or ambassadors of humans of Earth in so called Dimension 4; the world where higher magical beings live which humans can only describe trough myths, stories and legends. The job of the Spirit Fuser is to keep creatures from Dimension 4 at bay, not allowing them to disturb the normal life of humans who can’t see them.
Later Aya learns to use her ability with a help from Suna and another Soul Fuser; an older man named Nokolaj with a spirit of Zlatorog (Goldenhorn).
-Arrival at Mugen high:
It was an average day; Aya was resting on the bench while glaring at the reflective image of the part in the lake. After a while she heard a sound that seemed like a mixture of ripping and buzzing. Suna let her know that something strange is going on in near by park alley, something ‘abnormal’. They started to investigate when they suddenly came across a portal hidden by trees and bushes. Sensing that it has magical energy Suna suspected that it might have been one of the portals which randomly open and lead to Dimension 4 but as they got closer the portal started to spin rapidly, sucking in Aya and Suna and transferring them to another world.
After a rough landing on the grassy field, Aya looked around the place, spooked but not very much surprised. What really surprised her is noticing that Suna was sitting next to her, with her own soul and body, materialized as they would say. Because of this they realized that they are in a world where magic is a normal thing (who wouldn’t at the place that…?).
To be continued! (I will probably edit this info once I think what will happen next, sorry for offering just half of the story; I will probably make a comic about this one)
-Likes: Choco bars (or chocolate in general), silence, night, a good comic or artwork, music, helping up when ever necessary, sleep, dreaming, cute animals/creatures, simple things, taste of coffee.
-Dislikes: Noise, thunderstorms, ghost of dead people killed in horrible accident, nightmares, dishonesty or disloyalty, some types of insects, losing her glasses, failing to help someone, candy that tastes bad but looks good.
-Aya has poor eyesight. She can’t see well the things that are in the distance. She is almost blind on the left eye which is why it’s graish-blue color (unlike her right eye which is some type of blue).
-No one knows how her glasses stay put on her nose like that (lol). When she wants to take a closer look at something she just pushes them a bit more up her nose.
-Because she can’t see well her hearing is better then other senses.
-Avoids eye contact at all costs because of something her mother said and because of her ability. She is shy but also scared to look in other ones eyes. If she has to look at someone directly she would look at either the lips or the forehead.
-She’s a lucid dreamer (thanks to Suna).
-Because she is use to seeing usual things and strange situations, Aya will sometimes appear a bit paranoid about things around her.
-Suna: :thumb271035746: [link]
Suna is a Dream creature; a creature that resembles a dragon and/or a wolf with some kind of additional accessory (which depends on the owner). They act as guardians of dreams. Each person has one but is unable to see it in reality but only in dreams. Dream creatures also feast of ones dreams when they feel hungry (and that’s not often) which is why people sometimes can’t remember the whole or a part of the dream when awake. When people don’t get enough sleep the creatures tend to fall ill and become unable to protect the owners in the dream, resulting people to have nightmares. That, or dream creatures get lazy and neglect their jobs…
Dream creatures can roam free in Dimension 4 or dreams of their owners, never in someone else’s.
As for Sunas personality, she first appears calm but when ever something doesn't suit her she becomes a bit snappy. Quite direct, a bit short tampered and honest but careful about other ones feelings. Sometimes works as Ayas sixth sense or eyes (since Aya can't see quite well).
This is a dimension that is considered on a higher level then the ones Earth is. It’s a place where creatures of magic and magical entities can exist, somewhat parallel to Earth.
Dimension 4 divides into 2 kingdoms; Kingdom of the East and Kingdom of the West.
In each Kingdome there are 4 dynasties of creatures which rule the kingdom. On the West there are Griffins, Unicorns, Western dragons and Hydras. On the East there are Phoenixes, Qilins, Eastern Dragons and Black Tortoises. Despite these ruling dynasties, there are plenty of other creatures who live normal lives, similar to ones humans have.
There is also Underworld, a zone within Dimension 4 which is guarded by dynasty of Cerberus’.
Long ago there was only one kingdom with different regional rulers. Those rulers which are from same dynasty as of those who rule today had a task of keeping their world at peace. The symbol of that peace was a white pearl orb which had the power to control ones magic abilities and spirit, not allowing the power of magic consume the ones mind. One day the orb was found shattered; there was no suspects at the scene to blame for such disaster… no one except themselves. The grudge the dynasties kept inside of them broke lose and the war between East and West began. Creatures chose their sides and battled against one another, none of the battles leading closer to anyone’s victory but just more disasters with all of lose and uncontrolled magic and energy. Then, the wise and powerful dragon dynasties of East and West stepped up to put a stop to the war. Using the pieces of the shattered orb they imbedded in each species of creatures a “seal” in their bodies, which will keep their magic stable and not letting them enter the madness of their power again. The war subdue as quickly as it began but the hatred between dynasties and their followers lived on, and so they have divided into Kingdom of the West and Kingdom of the East.
Many years have passed and even today the two sides hold their grudges, more between dynasties then other creatures themselves. The war was so long ago everyone forgot why they were fighting in the first place. The dynasty of Cerberuses’ who were always on no ones side is now looked as traitors for not helping during the war.
Cerberus’ have important task to keep the demons and hellhounds of the Underworld locked up. But something strange is going on as more and more demons and hellhounds are found lose, either in Dimension 4 or human world…
-Legendary creatures in human world:
-Due to the lack of magic influence on Earth, creatures from Dimension 4 can appear as spirits or ghosts only. They can effect humans and their world, not quite directly but more indirectly (as fairies/sprites or mermaids may do) trough series of different situation that might lead humans to think of realistic explanation for such occurrence. Demons, ghosts and hellhounds can posses animals and people as well.
-Spirit Fusers and those somehow influenced with strong magic are the only ones who can see and interact with the creatures in human world (unless it’s a world with enough lose magic where creatures can exist as soul and body as well).
-There are random (and invisible to humans) portals that open on different places, they usually connect Dimension 4 with Earth, allowing creatures to cross the worlds frequently.
Here is a list of creatures that can be found in Dimension 4: [link]
(pretty much any legendary creature lol...)
Might edit for more info if necessary. owo
Sorry for my horrible horrible grammar too...
Also tell me if I should fix/add/change something please. X3
