Also wrong information.Wrong thread mate.
Ok, since Cheese is busy and won't see this for a bit I thought I'd chime in.Name: Corbin (last name is unknown)
Age: Unknown, presumed simply by appearance to be in his mid 20s
Magiks: Dark, Shadow
To the few who have seen him in broad daylight, he has bright, straight blonde hair and Crystal blue eyes. Almost exclusively wearing black in a multitude of assortments; long robes, or tight, unrestricting suit, or even a ninja-like outfit. His nose has been broken, but it isn't TOO noticeable. Not that it matters, as you will likely never see him anyway.
He is almost like Batman, if the comparison can be made. He likes to melt into to the shadows, both literally and figuratively. He does not dislike. He hates. He does not like. He loves. There is no such thing as middle ground to him. You are either with him, or against him. If you have the option between run and hide, run. If you can get on his good side (somehow) you have one of the most valuable allies ever. If you get on his bad side, you have one of the most dangerous enemies ever.
Corbin has never had a happy moment in his live. The closest to that he's had is satisfactory. His father was never home, his mother didn't love him, his siblings hated him as a monster, and the town treated him as a freak, as he was the first Dark Magik in the town for centuries. Strange things always happened around him, as if he was cursed. A kid would pick on him, his parents dead in the night, mauled by orcs. His only solace was that his father seemed to love him, even if he wasn't around. Then one day, he just disappeared. He was kidnapped, as there was a trail, and definitely left by humans as any other creature would have no reason to keep him alive. Corbin tried to follow, but he ran unto a pack of orcs. In his fury he cursed the captain, who went crazy, and attacked the town. He set fire to several buildings before several guards took him down. The town linked the fiasco to Corbin and he was tortured even more. He forced himself to learn Shadow Magik to slip away, and two years after the disappearance of his father, Corbin too disappeared. He continues to search for his missing parent, to no avail. But he will find him, by any means necessary.
Equipment: Blades, and lots of them. His favorite seems to be his trusty scythe, which has been at his side since his father disappeared.
Stats (25 total):
Magical skill: 6
Magical defence: 6
Melt away: Can become a shadow, and can quickly travel to a destination, almost as if he teleported. Can also be used as invisibility for various reasons. Lasts two turns. Cooldown for four.
Curse: Can send the target into an insane and uncontrollable frenzy, attacking the nearest person to [the target] Cooldown of two turns.
Exchange: Can exchange any one of his stats for another. e.g. Heath for Agility so Health becomes 4 and Agility becomes 2. Cooldown for three turns
My biggest concern here is that there have already been two other dark/shadow people, and having that be an issue would make me have to completely re-write my character. Also, I'm completely new to roleplay so there's that.
Yeah, but this isn't the world of Harry Potter, with all due respect. Being inspired by stuff you find is one thing, trying to make something from another fictional universe canon is not. For example, my current character, Acheron, is heavily inspired by Detlaff from Witcher 3 Blood and Wine, Krieg from Borderlands 2 and to a certain extent Cicero from Skyrim, but he's written in such a way that he's not doing stuff that those characters do that wouldn't be loreful here. (Admittedly I did write the lore for his species but eh )As for the cursed part, have you e Dr read the Harry Potter series? When Tom Riddle (Voldemort) is picked up by Dumbledoor he confessed that he can use his magic (unknown to him at the time) to do cruel things to people.
So far what I've taken away is that:
1) He needs to be Shadow
2) Edit Melt Away a bit
3) Probably change defensive stats
4) Add an offensive ability (already have an idea for that)
You should do that in the other roleplay, it would spice things up a bitI occasionally enjoy wandering into their roleplays and declaring things like "AND THEN A GIANT DINOSAUR STOMPED YOU INTO THE GROUND, SHOOTING LASERS AT YOUR MUTILATED CORPSE WITH ITS ROBO-DINO-EYES"
