Before gaining a form and body of her own, Ikra existed in a place with no warmth, no light, and no hope. All she knew was an aching sense of solitude. One day, she discovered a window into a world of light. Pressing herself against the window, she could feel the warmth. She could see the light. She was always following a young boy on his adventures around a grand castle. Ikra watched him grow up as the years passed. She cheered when he cheered. She cried when he cried. She became this young man’s biggest and most fervent supporter. This man who gave her a feeling of wholeness by peering into his life through his shadow. His name was Riis, and he was the Prince of Konats.
As Riis encountered more and more hardship, Ikra found herself feeling frustrated with herself. She wanted to help him so badly. She wanted him to know that he wasn’t alone. But… she was stuck as an observer. Watching his struggles from the sidelines. Several times she tried to reach out through his shadow, but each time, the light burned her outstretched hand, sending her into fits of agony. It wasn’t working! Even the light present at night was too bright for her to get much better results. Were shadows like her just not allowed to meddle in the affairs of light? It wasn’t fair! She wouldn’t stand for it.
One day, metallic monstrosities attacked the palace. Ikra feared for Prince Riis’s life, but he managed to narrowly escape. In the total darkness of space, Ikra found that she could reach through the barrier without much pain. The pain was still there, but this much she could manage. Seizing her chance, Ikra managed to materialize a black paper with instructions on how to give her shapeless existence form. She phrased it as though he would be summoning a powerful ally, and, to be fair, he was. He just didn’t yet know how deep the depths of her loyalty went. She had tucked the paper away in his belongings and embraced him gently while she could in the darkness, hoping to fend off any bad dreams.
Soon, the light returned, and she was forced to leave Riis and watch from the other side once more. Time passed, and Riis even managed to revive Konats and rule over his people once more. But… he still hadn’t found her note. Ikra was beginning to lose hope that he would. She tried to content herself that at least even if he never found it, she could always support him in silence. As much as it hurt that it was all she could do. She wanted to fight for him. Die for him if that was what it took to keep him happy and safe. When someone dared to defy him and challenged him, Ikra could feel her very being quaking with anger. How dare they! How dare! Damn, why couldn’t she be with him?!
Feeling her hopes slip away, all she could do was wait and pray that he found her note. That he would decide to perform the ritual and give her form. If he did that… then Ikra swore to herself that she would serve him for all eternity. Even if the gods themselves should choose to unleash their wrath on Riis, she would be his shield. She would serve him into death and beyond. Forever.

ACTION[A1] Shadow Shards:
Materializing several sharp bladed shadows from her essence, Ikra launches a volley of them at an opponent, dealing 33% of her current PL in damage.[B1] Guardian Gust:
By using her Bansho Fan, Ikra has gained the ability to summon up a powerful ki infused gust of wind to block and deflect attacks. This technique protects her with power equal to 33% of her current PL. If an opposing technique beats her gust, and Ikra's current PL is within 60% of the attack's PL, the damage is halved. (IE: If a Ki Barrier had 2,000 PL, and was broken by a 3,000 PL attack, the bleed-through damage would be 500 PL instead of 1,000). If Ikra's current PL is lower than 60% of the incoming attack, the damage reduction is only 25%.
Due to her amorphous nature as a shadow demon, Ikra can change her form into practically anything and anyone. She can even accentuate her natural appearance. Her attire is formed by this magic as well. The only thing that could give her away is that her eyes maintain the same golden hue regardless of what form she takes. [UT] Mesmerize:
Using her clan’s special ability, Ikra uses her hypnotic gaze to charm an opponent into being friendly toward her and her allies. The user cannot control direct actions, but if the target fails to resist this technique, then any action that would affect the caster must be favorable to them and their allies, even if no action can be taken. This effect can be resisted if the opponent’s will is strong enough or are bent on destroying demons. This technique requires 0 KP in KP battles and OOC consent of the player whose character is being targeted.
SIGNATURE[ASSIST SIG] Eclipse:
Using her demonic magic, Ikra can cast a shadow over the sun, making the surrounding areas dark and dim as though it were night. This technique functions like a Devil Lamp that is not consumed upon use and does not require Ikra to have one in her inventory. Unlike a normal Devil Lamp, this technique can affect up to three willing characters activating all Devil Lamp based transformations for them. Additionally, for 1 KP Ikra can grant all characters affected by this technique the ability to boost their Defensive PL by +x1 for one post, this action costs her Support Technique for that post. This technique can only be used once per thread and its effect cannot be destroyed without permission.
POWER OF THE DARKSIDE: A Demon purchasing an Offensive or Defensive Signature Style can have one Style be purchased at slot reduction of -1. this allows a Demon to purchase a Starting Branch at no cost but to do so they still require a MP3 or UV3. Demons also gain thematic access to Magic styled techniques and the use of magic without extra explanation.
WRATH: Once per thread a Demon can dig deep and tap into their full power, the next technique they use treats their transformation modifier as if it were +x1.
HOLY FRAIL: Unless they attain the level of dreaded Makaioshin, Demons are especially vulnerable to the powers of creation which the Kaioshin possess and their multiplier in the presence of a Shinjin is subject to a -x2 penalty. If a Demon's multiplier drops below 1, it is treated as having no multiplier.
SHADOW VEIL [x2P]: Wreathing herself in shadow, Ikra prepares for combat.
ONE WITH THE DARK [x4P]: With the aid of a devil lamp or a special technique, Ikra can manifest more of her dark power, revealing her true nature as a demon.
- Bansho Fan: A mystical fan capable of blowing incredibly powerful gusts of wind, as if it were magic. Allows the wielder to use one free B1 or SU1 Solar Flare technique on either themselves or an ally, once per thread. Bleedthrough for the B1 goes to the wielder.
