B I O G R A P H Y

Madena was born the only child to a noble couple in the higher class of Rhisoka. They desperately wanted a child but have struggled for years. Finally, whether by miracle or magic, the wife became pregnant. When the time came the husband was right by his wife's side, supporting her through the entire procedure...but no one could foresee what the child was.

As soon as the child's snake-like eyes opened, the doctor and assistants turned to stone. The parents were shocked, but it was their little baby. She wasn't a monster, not in their eyes. Knowing that the child would be executed for what it was, both parents fled the capital and found themselves drifting from town to town. When they ran out of towns they sought refuge in an old imperial fort deep in the wilderness, long abandoned by the empire. There they made it their new home. The child was given a name, 'Madena', and no matter what her parents loved her. As the child grew older, she learned to control both her bizarre hair as well as her powers. In this time she also learned new ones, being able to turn either certain parts or her entire body into a giant snake. Due to what she was, her father(a former legionnaire, now deserter) taught her how to fight, hunt and protect herself. Her mother taught her all the skills needed in a household. Due to the danger their daughter was to others as well as the fear she instilled in others, they kept to themselves. This secrecy slowly turned into an almost xenophobic nature, and she had very little contact with other people.

In her 16th year, her father went out to hunt food for them as he always did. But this time he never came back. Out of necessity, Madena used her skills to hunt for her and her mother, as well as search for her father. Several weeks after his disappearance they received visitors. A unit of imperial soldiers had gotten their location out of her father and executed him. Too afraid to fight, Madena hid in their home. She watched as her mother was executed and this snapped something inside her. In a wave of rage she burst from her hiding spot and turned every single soldier to stone, a power she hated using but in this case she didn't care.

From there she fended for herself. Too afraid to look for other humans she stayed in her home. Anyone getting curious, hoping for an easy score or looking for her was turned to stone. She became something of a legend, "The Serpent in the Fort". Not a big legend but pretty well known in the far western corner of the empire.

Since then she has stayed in her home, afraid of anyone stumbling across her fort, not sure whether they want to hurt her or not.

P E R S O N A L I T Y

A xenophobic and territorial exterior hides and protects an innocent and curious personality. Madena's upbringing has made her skeptical of strangers and as such she has no trust for anyone coming across her home. Though she hates hurting others, thus she made sure to put up signs to warn people venturing too close. If they still persist, they either become lunch or a new statue.

She is an adventurous and kind soul, however. She wants to see the world, meet new people, but with what happened to her parents she is too afraid to venture out and see the world. She would rather stay close to her home, where she knows its safe.

Just like her features, she takes after a reptile. Easily interested in anything shiny and completely lazy and useless in the warm sunlight. A rather annoying tendency she hates a lot is the need to shed her skin once every year.

A B I L I T I E S

Not a mage by any means, but she is touched by the Myst and has potential. Her strongest and most prominent ability is to turn any living creatures to stone. It's an ability she can use at her own will and is easily recognized, as her eyes glow brightly when she uses it. A drawback of the ability, though, is that she needs to maintain constant eye contact for at least a second. With surprised, shocked or frozen enemies it's easy, but anyone aware of her will have more than enough time to close their eyes and prevent the terrifying spell.

Her hair is also a cluster of venomous snakes she can use as an extra set of weapons. The snakes also convey her mood rather effectively as well. Her sight can also neutralize and dissipate magic. It's most easily seen when a stream of flames or ice coming for her suddenly turns to ash and blows away. A drawback to this as well is that it's an active ability. In order to stop a power, she needs to maintain her gaze constantly to neutralize a spell which can get tiring and stops her from using her gaze to turn someone to stone. Again, this can also be interrupted by disrupting her focus or causing her to close her eyes.

Another useful ability of hers is her shape-shifting. She can either turn parts of herself into a snake, or her entire body. She can also change her size, from a small snake less than a meter big all the way up to a giant serpent 12 meters long and strong enough to crush a human being with little effort.

Her parents also taught her how to fight and care for herself. She is a decent shot with a bow, adept with a sword and can survive in the wilderness. She knows which plants are safe to use and what to use them for, though poison or venom has little effect on her. Her scaly hide is also thick enough to resist glancing blows from weapons as well...and it gives her a natural 'cover', making her something of an unintentional exhibitionist at times if she morphs it correctly.

Another feature is her heightened senses, especially her smell. Her eyes allow her to see perfectly in night time or through bad conditions with infrared vision and her forked tongue allows her to not only track creatures for miles but taste various aspects as well. She can 'taste' emotions if they are being felt strong enough and even how strong a person is in the Myst.

I would like to see limits outlined on her characters power. I understand 100% the intent, but I'd like to make sure she isnt capable of one-shotting literally everything first

What do you mean? Like put a limit on her stoner gaze?

AmericanDream what if she needs to maintain a constant eye lock for a second or so? Will give plenty of time to shut their eyes to break her spell.

On anything player-controlled it is a risk that I don't think needs to be there. Perhaps actually allow magic to resist her ability, either slow it or if the mage is sufficiently powerful enough. Anything that leaves other characters an avenue to overpower it (however small, not every player has to be able to, it just can't be limitless)

In addition, I would like for you to change a small detail of the backstory pertaining to the character's parents. Blooded Nobles in general do not have to fear persecution as they are beholden only to the Magistrates or the Empress herself, neither of which would logically care if their child was a monster as this or not. I'd recommend if you want to continue the persecution angle they either be lowered to lesser nobility, or they're taken out of the Empire in its entirety.

EDIT: Eye contact works, as well.

Edits made. Took out the 'blooded' part and nerfed her ability. Anything else I need to edit?

Either that or just taken out completely. She's currently got no allegiance to any main faction
I'll switch her to misc. The misc prefix is for any character that doesn't fall under the other prefixes.

I was looking over this character again as prompted by conversation about it, I would like to see a secondary nerf on the character's gaze. I understand it's her only real skill, but for the sake of balance I feel the sheer power, even if the scope is narrow, is a bit high.

The one thing that stood out immediately was this line, "Her sight can also neutralize and dissipate magic. It's most easily seen when a stream of flames or ice coming for her suddenly turns to ash and blows away.", the rest of it I think can do fine (Though I would possibly want to see a reduction of her physical strength as well)

How you nerf this is up to you, I'm putting it back on pending until resolved.
