Necro Mortus, the Decayed
NAME: Necro Mortus
HEIGHT: 2.1 meters (6'2")
WEIGHT: 79.6 KG (175⅓ lbs)
RACE: Myst born
APPEARANCE: Tall and slender, Necro Mortus also boasts a very athletic physique and allows his long silver hair to hang back behind his head freely. Most of his flesh is rotten but patches of pale white and blue skin remain. His face is severely mauled, with his lips and the surrounding area being decayed to the bone, exposing his jaw, teeth, and cartilage from his nose. He sports one faintly glowing neon turquoise-blue eye and one completely bloodshot red eye. Beyond this, he has all limbs and extremities attached.
JOB OR RANK: Mercenary
PERSONALITY: Necro Mortus isn't a merciless bounty Hunter, or the mindless zombie most assume him to be. He also isn't a warm hearted hero either. In fact he feels no emotion at all. All he knows is logic, instinct, and survival. Beyond his emotional state, or lack thereof, he is highly intelligent and witty as well as a great scholar.
These are some entries in his personal journal/log;
Several months after my second awakening, I have decided to document my 'condition' for the sole purpose of further understanding my predicament. In this time, before the entry I write now, I have discovered several anomalous consistencies about my aforementioned condition, as listed below with a short summary of the discovery.
- several hours after resurrection, I encountered a wolf. During the interaction the animal let out a growl that made me take a defensive stance without my own will. However I have since then learned to 'ignore' my body's natural response. More studies will need to take place before I can state my hypothesis.
- Sometime during my travel in the night, I was ambushed by a bandit. Upon shining his torch light to view me, the bandit recoiled in fear and thrust his sword upon me, piercing my chest before fleeing. My initial reaction was to grab the wound in pain but before I could complete the action, I realized there was none. I hypothesize that I may not feel pain.
- Originally I had believed that the bandit fled due to the same response as I had with the wolf. However upon entering a small village, I have discovered that most people have this same initial response, but not as extreme in most cases. I have since then started to wear a wooden mask and cloak to disguise myself upon entering a place I have not been before to provoke a more positive reaction.
More discoveries have yet to be made, but rest assured, when discovered they will be documented thoroughly."
BIOGRAPHY: upon what Necro Mortus calls his "second awakening", he crawled out of his unmarked grave where, presumably, he originally died. Without any knowledge of his past life, name, memories, and most notably, his soul, he wanders the world looking to discover what he is. Necro himself has several theories of how he came to be with all, or none being the correct answer. What he has discovered however is do to the abnormality of his existence, his body now functions differently on the fundamental level.
He does not need food, other than for healing wounds, however does need water to survive. He does need more sleep than an average person, but for him sleep is accumulative. For example, on average he needs approximately sixty hours of sleep a week but does not need to sleep every day, and prefers to rest all sixty hours at once. Because of the lack of physical pain Necro feels, he's able to push his body well beyond its limits. He can muster up to four times the physical abilities of your average human without strain, but can go far beyond this at the risk of physical damage. In short, Necro Mortus has no idea where his soul is, what he is, or how he came to be. Despite this, he takes the chance he has been given to do what he can and enjoy what little he can.
