About the Character
Rekka is a surprisingly calm individual despite the element that she uses and what troubles she has endured through the years. Her most terrible hardship being that she has lost an eye. She's terribly insecure of it and is likely to get grumpy if anyone brings it up. She is slow to anger and when she does get angry, she has had enough. The only times she does burst with anger is during a time of injustice. She hates seeing others get mistreated and will be the one to confront someone if she feels it necessary.
As for Rekka, she's a typical individual. She hasn't any real big time dreams and is pretty much one that's going with the flow in life. When it comes to major responsibilities, Rekka becomes overwhelmed. She likes just being able to do her usual thing. When thrown into situations that are extreme, she doesn't know where to turn. Sometimes, this causes her to become aggressive towards others since aggression is what got her far during hard times.
Normally, Rekka is a caring individual. She does her best to help someone out when she sees they're in need. Her determination is a key part of her character. If she finds herself determined enough, she can accomplish most things. When this happens, she often finds herself surprised at herself. It doesn't happen all that often for her.
Rekka is not the leading sort. When she finds herself in a position where she must lead someone in something, she gets uncomfortable. Her self consciousness during these times tend to give her a high tendency of messing things up. When she is with others though, she is able to focus a bit better and cooperate. As long as everything doesn't just depend on only her, she is fine. However, she doesn't like people that think they're better than everyone. Can be envious of those that have been more fortunate than her. Makes her resent those that has had it better than herself a little.
Just as the picture shows, Rekka has dark red, long straight hair. Her eyes are a light brown in color. The photograph you see above is what she used to look like before the loss of her left eye. Now, she wears a white eye patch over where it used to be with two strings wrapping just above on her forehead out of her eyes and just below the eye and wrapping back so that it doesn't cross over the bridge of her nose or other eye. Underneath is a grotesque sight and thus why she has it covered. Granted, her eyelid covers it for the most part but she does have a scar gauging that area and it's unsightly. So, the use of her eyepatch makes it less stomach turning to others.
As for height, Rekka only stands at five feet and three inches,she's not very tall. Her complexion is fair but not pale. As for body structure, one could pretty much label her as simply normal. She is thin but not too thin. A typical girl body structure that anyone would expect from someone that didn't have an overly active lifestyle but not an overly pampered one either.
For clothes, Rekka tends to wear something that doesn't make her stand out in a crowd. She likes to wear casual looking clothing like the attire she wears in the picture. Usually, they consist of some kind of red, brown and black and almost always accompanied by a belt of some kind. The belt's never used for anything to keep her skirts up except to just loop lazily about her waist. If one were to look at her, the only trait that would stand out would be her eyepatch.
Rekka doesn't know it yet but she can also summon an armor to her. It's currently inaccessible until she encounters one of her fellow destined. When she meets just one other destined, Rekka is able to summon what would look like a half armor. Half armor meaning that she wouldn't be entirely covered like a full blown armor would do. Around her legs, feet and knees, she'd have a red plating. About the front of her stomach going down to her front and up to her chest, she has red plating. About her chest and bottom, she has red armor covering that. However, as you can see, a lot of areas are still out in the open and not fully protected. Her forearms and hands are also covered in red armor plating but that's it for protection in her half form. If one were to look at her, they might think she was prepared for some kind of sport.
As for her full blown armor, it's red in color. In order for the armor to appear, a kanji symbol appears on her forehead glowing red in color. When it does, kanji letters run up and down her sides. Then, out sprouts the armor and it encases her in it. However, there are weak spots in the jointed areas. Her upper legs are also exposed having no armor to protect that area. She then attains a helmet which has numerous metal V shaped horns sticking out of the top of it making it seem ox-like or dragon-like. Can only summon this once she is with at least three others of the destined.
Character Hobbies/Activities: Reading and painting.
Character Position: Hero
Fire Ball: As the ability name suggests, Rekka is able to conjure a single fire ball the size of a basketball at her enemy. The attack does minimal damage if it hits. One post cool down. (Accessible in half armored form & full armor)
Flamethrower: Rekka sends in a straight direction in front of herself at a distance of seven feet a burst of flame. Attack can cause minimal damage if it hits. Has a two post cool down. (Accessible in half armored form & full armor)
Fire wall: Rekka can produce a wall of fire. The wall of flames reaches a height of seven feet and a width of twelve feet. She can only create one wall at a time. The fire wall only lasts for three posts with a cool down of three posts. If an enemy should try and touch it, they risk getting the burn effect on top of the moderate damage this ability can cause. Burn effect lasts for as long as opponent roleplayer decides.
(Accessible in half armored form & full armor)
Flare: Rekka conjures four small balls of flame. The encircle the opponent and then all dart in at the enemy in the center of them, producing a small explosion for each of them. Causes moderate damage. Cool down of three posts. (Accessible in half armored form & full armor)
Armor: She can summon armor to aid her in battle but only when she is around at least one other individual that is a part of the destined four. When she encounters one person, she is able to call the armor to her on a whim. The armor, if it's just one other individual, is in a half form. This means that she is only able to use the abilities mentioned for it when in half armored form. Her half armor gives her a 15% protection from physical attacks and magical attacks. When in full form, meaning when around three or all four of the destined she is able to do this, all the abilities mentioned for full armor are accessible. Full armor gives her half protection against physical and magical attacks.
Eruption: If an opponent doesn't watch their feet, Rekka can start forming cracks in the ground with red hot embers in them. These embers don't harm the person's feet. It's the actual eruption of a fire pillar a post afterward that does the actual harm. Can cause moderate damage to the enemy. Three post cool down. (Accessible in full armor only.)
Sword skills: Since she had to learn how to use it, though nothing compared to a seasoned warrior, Rekka is decent with her sword that her father had given her. (Passive and this is with or without the armor.)
Flame Immunity: Being a fire wielder, Rekka is naturally immune to flames.
Fire Sword: Rekka can cause flames to engulf the sword and add two feet to her four foot long sword. The flames makes it easier for her to cut through some defenses she couldn't normally and even cut into metal. Lasts for three posts, has a cool down of three posts. (Accessible in half armor and full armor only)
Back Draft: Rekka appears as if she has suddenly gotten hazy. Holding her sword in a battle ready stance, she pulls it back preparing for an attack. The haze seems to suddenly focus onto the sword as if the weapon absorbed it. Then, swinging her weapon as if she were to slash at someone from where she is, Rekka's slash, though it isn't actually meant to hit the person, suddenly forms a small gust of fire that loops towards the enemy. Has a three post cool down. (Accessible in half armored form and full armor.)
Character Weapons: Samurai sword: A sword that had been given to her when she turned fourteen. The sword looks like your typical weapon. The only distinct feature it has is kanji letters running up the blade engraved into it. The letters say "fire". Of course, this weapon is more than it appears to be but it's power is locked up inside. Any abilities that this sword has is provided above.
Character Items: Portal Beans: Described below in transportation. Carries a maximum of 125 before she must purchase more.
Mode of Transportation: Portal Beans: Rekka carries a bag of miniature gummi-like beans that are devices that once they make impact with the ground after she tosses them, it enables Rekka to create a portal. This enables her to travel between worlds and areas. Doesn't use these in battle.
Character Strengths: Rekka's strengths are in her fire abilities. She's also able to work well when she's with others.
Character Weaknesses: Is insecure of her eye loss, doesn't bode well against water attacks, gets uneasy in situations where she finds everything depending on her.
Character Home World: Radiant Garden
Ethan Garnette: Father (deceased)
Sakura Garnette: Mother (alive but unwell)
Rekka was born in Radiant Garden to Ethan and Sakura Garnette. It was a slightly cool, early spring morning. One would think this was a happy thing and where it was, it wasn't exactly during a happy time in the worlds. The emperor, Lakari, had sent out an undead army to destroy the worlds. Everyone feared that one day, their world would be next as worlds gradually fell to the power of Lakari.
A war broke out, keybladers and regular fighters alike trying to stop the elf's reign of terror. It had been going on for so long that Rekka had been around ten years old when the war had finally ended. It was a victory but a very sad one. Every single keyblader in existence had fought in that war. Every single one of them had been wiped out. The keybladers were extinct, there were no more. A sad thing since keybladers were the strongest warriors in the universe. They could save worlds from being taken over by darkness and the Heartless. Now that they were gone, the last remaining five worlds were in a lot of trouble.
World over population occurred soon after the war. There were only five worlds left that refugees could flee to. Radiant Garden had been one of them and that's when hard times came to Rekka. Her family hadn't struggled before until after the war. Since there were too many people in the worlds to take care of, a lot of people ended up becoming violent, attacking others in order to survive. The crime rates went up a severe notch. At every turn, one had to be careful that they weren't robbed or worse. Almost every day, a murder would take place.
Growing up in such a life, Rekka had been around fourteen during the most tragic moment in her life. Having just finished class, Rekka had just made it home when someone decided to try and break into their house. During the struggle, Rekka had lost her left eye and her father had been mortally wounded. Their attacker, seeing what he had done, fled from the scene. Before dying, Ethan gave to Rekka his samurai sword and told her to use it to protect herself and her mother. With that, he gave his last breath and passed on, leaving his wife and daughter behind.
During the years leading up to her current age, Rekka and her mother have been struggling to survive all this time. It has made them harsher and more resilient. After all, one had to adapt or get taken advantage of or die. Rekka's most major struggle in all of her life had been getting over the fact that she had lost an eye. It wasn't easy at first adjusting to having one eye. Not only that but kids her age had made fun of her over it, making her terribly insecure of the injury. If that hadn't been bad enough, it got worse. Rekka's life has gotten even harder as her mother falls ill with a mysterious illness. With their living falling upon her shoulders now, Rekka struggles to work hard while taking care of her bedridden mother. Rekka has yet to discover what else life has in store for her and considering her track record, she's not going to be all that pleased with what is coming around the bend. After all, an ancient legend speaks of four heroes of light and one dark god. The rise of the dark god is on the rise and those four heroes are destined to appear. Who are they and where are they?
