    Flashback Training

    Post by Kenji on Mon Nov 25, 2013 6:55 pm

    Sebastian crawled his way through the rocky pass.  He placed his right hand on one of the sharp rocks and hoisted himself up and onto the rock shelf.  His hand was sweaty and nearly slipped off as the hot sun beat down on his back.  The pack was weighing him down, he had at least a week's worth of provisions in his bag and his rifle slung over his shoulder.  Well, he had a week's worth of provisions when he had started his journey across Ares, but now it was closer to a few hours worth.  His water was abundant, which was life saving in this heat, and he had been more than thankful when he had come across the winding river before beginning his climb up the cliffs.  It had been nearly a week and a half since he left what had remained of his father's once great nomadic empire.  They had once been a great power across these arid lands, but time and sickness had compromised the very integrity of their leader and left Sebastian orphaned.  

    Only a week after his father's death, Sebastian had left the few stragglers of their nomadic band.  Dropping his pack on a flat rock, Sebastian sat down and took out his canteen, beginning to remember his last moments at the camp and his discussion with his father's right hand man Renly.  Renly had always been kind to Sebastian, he had been his teacher for rifle training and the basics of learning his Essence.  Sebastian's father had been too busy to train his son, so the duty had fallen to Renly who accepted the honor with open arms.  Renly was tasked with conditioning Sebastian to some day lead the growing empire his father was now commanding.  On the particular day Sebastian left, Renly had been teaching him a simple technique that would generate an image of the user as a distraction.  Renly had been a survival expert and had instructed Sebastian in many things, ranging from gathering food, where to look for water, how to hide from certain types of beasts, and everything else under the sun.  He had even taught the young Nova how to cook.  

    He had explained that this technique was imperative in not only running away, but could be used for scouting for ambush, as well as distraction to take the target by surprise.  It was a simple, yet versatile little trick he had described, and Sebastian had taken to it quickly and efficiently.  By that afternoon he had already mastered it and when the two sat down for an evening meal, it was then that Sebastian described his intent to leave and find his own way in this world.  Renly had of course been sad, but he had understood and solemnly handed him his own rifle.  An ancient old sniper, but one that could shoot truer than anything they had come across in their travels across the desert.  Sebastian had seen it in action himself, even fired it a few times at Renly's discretion.  Sebastian already had a bag packed and in the dead of night, left, only telling Renly of his intention to leave that night.  It had been a quick goodbye, but that was because there was little needed to be said between the two.  At the age of 10, Renly had more or less began raising Sebastian.  They were more father and son than his own father had ever been to Sebastian.  

    With a sigh, Sebastian capped his canteen and picked up his things once again.  His destination?  Demeter.

    Spoiler:

    Name: Dream Land: Shade
    Damage Focus: Essence
    Rank: E
    Classification: Support
    Range: Mid

    Description: This is one of Sebastian's most basic illusions and allows him to create a mirror image of himself.  At this rank the image simply copies his appearance and upon being hit by anything, regardless of rank, will dissipate into raw essence once again.  However it is very useful for buying him time to get in position with his rifle or scouting out ahead in case of an ambush.  

    Name: Emotion Spectrum: Fear
    Damage Focus: Essence
    Rank: E
    Classification: Support/Defensive
    Range: Mid

    Description: By sending out a pulse of raw essence all around him, Sebastian can induce fear and doubt into his enemies, often times causing them to run away.  At this rank it only works on the smallest of creatures and for other humans, nova, and zireh will only work if they were previously scared or paranoid of something else.  

    Name: Emotion Spectrum: Anger
    Damage Focus: Essence
    Rank: E
    Classification: Support/Offensive
    Range: Mid

    Description: Sebastian sends out a pulse of essence that induces anger and the desire to fight in the smallest of creatures.  This can help in large crowds as it doesn't make himself a target, but instead whoever is affected will simply desire to fight or kill anything in the vicinity.

    Name: Armsman: Bullet
    Damage Focus: Destroy
    Rank: E
    Classification: Offensive
    Range: Short-Mid

    Description: This is Sebastian's most simple bullet style as it is the base of all of his others.  By condensing his essence into a compact ball, he can fire this essence out of his rifle and deal damage equivalent to a normal bullet, dealing E-rank destroy essence damage.

    Name: Armsman: Bullet Block
    Damage Focus: Destroy
    Rank: E
    Classification: Offensive
    Range: Short-Mid

    Description: This is Sebastian's first variation to his essence bullets and upon being fired will create a shield about a foot in front of the barrel of Sebastian's rifle. This shield is able to block E-rank attacks but will shatter upon being struck by anything higher. The shield completely blocks Sebastian's front with its sides curling around to block him from above and the sides, but his back is left wide open.


    Name: Quick Scope: Shot
    Damage Focus: Style
    Rank: E
    Classification: Offensive
    Range: Short-Mid

    Description: By using his style of quick scoping in and out of a target, Sebastian has mastered the art of firing his rifle.  This allows him to give all of his shots at least an E-rank in piercing damage along with the damage associated with his bullet type he's using at the time.

    Name: Quick Scope: Double Tap
    Damage Focus: Style
    Rank: E
    Classification: Offensive
    Range: Short-Mid

    Description: Sebastian has become such a well rounded marksman that he has developed the ability to fire off shots at twice the speed of a normal gunman.  This means he can fire off two shots from his rifle so quickly that they border on near simultaneous shots, giving him the ability to hit two targets in one pull of the trigger.  

    Name: Quick Scope: Tracker
    Damage Focus: Style
    Rank: E
    Classification: Support
    Range: Short-Mid

    Description: By training in the art of quick scoping, Sebastian has attained such a level of mastery that he can now hit things moving at E-rank speed or below without missing once. The only way to survive is to move faster, or have a defense.

    Name: APM: Copy Cat
    Damage Focus: Transmute
    Rank: E
    Classification: Support
    Range: Varies

    Description: Upon seeing a transmute technique of E-rank or below, Sebastian can use that technique in the same topic.  However, afterwards he must train for the technique if he wants to retain it, if he doesn't want to retain it or doesn't train for it before the next topic he's in, the information will be lost forever.

    E-rank Speed
    E-rank Endurance
