Name/Title: Dust Hokori
Age Range: 25
Appearance: Dust sits at 5'7" with an above average build, with scars surrounding his body. He has pale skin with a small mole on his right cheek. Most of his scars are covered by his clothes, save for the ones on his arms as he usually goes sleeveless, & around his stomach. His long hair is a bit messy, tying it into a ponytail. His red eyes can be a bit scary, especially with no light reflecting off his eyes.
Equipment: Dust isn't one for big or fancy armor, opting for more loose clothing, to move as he see's fit. He sports a sleeveless white coat with a black undershirt that shows his stomach. He wears dark brown pants with brown shoes, a small yellow decal around the shoes. He also wears a black leather mask around his mouth, which bears gnashing teeth with fangs, to strike fear into his enemies. Dust doesn't carry around weapons, he opts for a more hands on approach.
Skills, Spells, Special Abilities
Acrobatic: Dust is nimble on the battlefield, & with no heavy armor slowing him down, he's able to move however he wants. He's better moving than standing in one place. The lack of armor does leave him more open to attacks, though.
Darkness Manipulation: Dust has an unusual ability to control the darkness in him. It's more apparent when the white around his eyes turn black, showing off a more demonic appearance. He can cover his forearms in the dark element, from his hands to his elbows, turning them into deadly claws. This also makes his arms more durable & strong as steel, allowing him to block & deflect attacks as needed. This comes naturally to him due to years of training, consuming little to no stamina & energy to activate & maintain. His strength increases while he uses his ability of darkness, putting him above average of any fit person. While he's more of a close combat kind of guy, should he need to fight from a distance, he can slice dark blades from his claws at his opponents. They're as big as a throwing axe, just as sharp as blades & just as dangerous, if not more so. They can reach as far as 30ft & can travel at arrow speed. This does drain his stamina for each use, & needs a few seconds before firing more each shot.
Should he have taken too much damage & on his last legs, he can let the darkness take over him, covering nearly his entire body. This makes his body as strong & durable as his claws, acting like a human shield. His strength, speed, & stamina double in an attempt to make himself stronger or get out of a sticky situation, though at the cost of his lifespan & control. His sense of awareness diminishes rapidly as soon as he uses this form, & it deactivates after 30 seconds, consuming all his stamina. This is, in a sense, a last resort.
"In this world, you either survive...
Dust is definitely not a social person, not because he's shy or anything. He just doesn't like people. Can't stand them. He can come off as rude, regardless who he's talking to. What he does look forward to is fighting. It's exciting & gets his blood pumping. If you can't solve anything with words, you can always count on your fists.
While he doesn't get close to anyone, he tends to open up a little to those that show a good heart. That isn't very often in his life, unfortunately, but those that he considers a friend, they're a friend for life, & is willing to protect them as needed. He doesn't know much about social interaction, or what activities they do to pass the time, but that doesn't mean he's willing to give it a try. He tends to adventure solo often, but isn't above teaming up with others, if he can stand them that is.
