About the Character
Character Personality: Despite having power of light and darkness, Jason is what many would consider a white knight, once you've gotten to know him. If one were to gain his trust, he is loyal to a fault. But trust is a very fragile thing, and breaking that trust will result in taking a long time to replace what was lost. Jason is also a bit sarcastic, and opinionated, never liking to follow the lead of someone who's views he doesn't agree with. Jason is an idealistic person, trying to find the good in a situation, but this doesn't always succeed, and he does accept when things are too bad to think positively, backing of if asked to do so. When it comes to protecting those he cares about, he is willing to put his own safety on the line to protect someone.
Character Appearance: link Jason stands at 6 foot, has a slim build, and weighs roughly 180lb. He wears mostly black clothes and a white undershirt, though his let arm is wrapped up with red bandage. On the back of his jacket is a linear cross split in half and spaced out vertically. To match his left hand being wrapped up, he wears a black glove, to make things even on both sides. He has mahogany eyes, black hair, and a slightly pale, caucasian complexion. On his feet are two, steel toed black boots, matching his somewhat monochrome ensemble.
Character Position: Neutral
Light Powers: Light Manipulation: Able to alter the density of the light around his body, to create bursts of light for strategic purposes, cloak himself in a light veil that renders himself temporarily invisible, or even transport himself distances as far as half a mile away in the blink of an eye. The aura around his body while light abilities are active is a transparent light blue.
Guard: A semi transparent shield made of pure, solidified light waves spanning 1 meter wide, and 3.5 meters long/high in an oval shape. It can take most melee and small arms attacks (guns, arrows, etc), as well as some weak superpowers. But since it is not a naturally made shield, it weakens and eventually breaks after so many attacks, and can't be manifested as strongly as before so soon after, taking less and less strikes the more he uses it after breaking (I'll be reasonable, don't worry). It would need time to recover before it can be used to its fullest again, at least 2 posts without use before it's at full strength again.1 post cool down, additional post added to cool down before shield is at full strength.
Flash: A diversionary ability meant for temporarily blinding with a bright flash of light, disorienting enemies long enough to either disarm and defeat, or buy time to run away. The effect of the spell works better the closer the opponent is, and isn't as useful if against someone that has eye protection. Especially useful against large numbers...so long as they aren't prepared. The only indication of this ability taking effect is a slight increase of density in his light aura.
Burst: A mid-ranged strike that takes the form of a pulse pushing straight forward from his palms or fists, often times sending his opponents flying a few meters back and onto their backsides (this only reaches a foot from where his punch/palm thrust ends). 1 post cool down.
Chain: A last-ditch effort in defense if disarmed, or if range is a necessity. It's blunt force can cause crippling damage if striking vital points, and it can also wrap around body parts to disable an opponent or throw them off balance. However, like his shield, it grows weaker if manifested in succession after breaking. It is not meant for deflecting, only to strike at openings in an enemy's defenses, and much agile movement is needed to dodge oncoming strikes. 2 post minimum cool down before back to full strength after breaking. cool down stacks each time the chain is broken, and requires 1 post longer to rest before it's in top performance again.
Dash: Forcing his entire body to move from one location at the speed of light, he can transport his body anywhere within a half mile radius of his starting point. This power exerts a lot of energy and mental strain on Jason, and is most times than not used either as a quick escape, or a quick way to get the jump on an unsuspecting enemy. Jason requires at least 5 posts before he can do this again.
Dark Powers: Jason can manipulate the unseen dark matter around his body, forming an assortment of different abilities meant for offensive maneuvers. He can create near indestructible blades out of thin air, induce full body matter displacement within a close proximity, and even form the matter into a protective layer to shield his body from harm. The aura around his body while dark abilities are active is a dark blue.
Claws: Like the name implies, Jason can form dense, sharp claws on his hands and feet, stretching 4 inches from each digit. However, the claws on his feet are only 2 inches in length, fit tightly together like an animal's claws and there are only 4 per foot. No cool down, actively triggered.
Shadow-Claw Armor: a full body armor suit made from heavily dense, but highly flexible shadow matter. His main weapon of choice (if active) are the shadow claws on his hands and feet. The shadows form to his skin like a veil, but when his claws are out, the veil over his head morphs into a bestial mask looking much like a long eared fox's head, and a smoky fox tail trails behind Jason just as the base of his spine that can be used as a close range whip from behind. This armor is mostly as a means to intimidate, or frighten his opponent into running or surrendering, but it has some combat potential. This armor is fairly durable, given his pre-educated mastery of dark matter manipulation, but some amount of fatigue takes effect after the armor is dispelled. The amount of fatigue depends on the duration of time the armor is active, and how much he exerts himself in battle. It is possible to cut or break part of the armor, but if you give him time to recover, he can reform the armor around himself (which also adds to the fatigue after use). However, the armor can be just as durable as when it was first cast. Cool down of up to 3 posts before reusable.
Rift Jump: Jason can phase his entire body in and out of space to transport short distances consecutively. He can do this a total of 5 times before he needs to rest, good for tactical fast-paced strikes. At least 4 post cool down after the 5th jump.
Doppleganger: This ability is most effective in the dark, and is an illusion to make his opponents believe he is standing, walking, or sitting in a different place than he is. This gives him time to circle around his target and take them by surprise (the ninja art of deception ). However, it's only useful against small groups of 3 or less. Too many and he would be outnumbered after they realized what was going on. It can also be a means for escape, to throw people off if he's on the verge of defeat and can't use his light power's 'Dash' ability (but only works if he can temporarily lose them so he can manifest the doppelgänger). One hit durability, and 1 post cool down.
Character Weapons: Whatever's handy, but mostly just his chain and shadow claws.
Character Strengths: Loyal to his friends and allies, and very driven when he sets his mind to something.
Character Weaknesses: His loyalty can sometimes be hazardous for his health, as he is willing to put himself in front of an attack to keep his friends safe. He also cannot blend the two skill sets together, no trace of light abilities can be present for dark abilities to be active, and vice versa.
Jason is a former resident of The land of departure, and a somewhat distant cousin of a keyblade apprentice being trained by a master in the keyblade master's castle. At the age of 8, he and his parents went on a field trip of sorts, recommended by Jason's cousin relative so as to learn more about the worlds and possibly grow to be a keyblade wielder, like his cousin.
After two years of traveling to different worlds, and learning new things about the realm of light by many who were well versed in the existence of worlds other than their own, Jason and his parents returned to find that his home had been consumed by darkness, only a strange castle in its place. With no reason to stay, they set off to find a new home, grieving for the ones they lost.
They started off in a place where the stars were always out, but the place seemed a bit too shady, and the family elected to travel to a different world. This new world was brighter, but the sun just never seemed to set, and sleep was harder to get in this world.
Deciding to move once more, they found themselves on a strange, old fashioned world, one that was very peaceful, and reminded them much of their old world. While it wasn't the Land of Departure, Earthsea had a mystical aura about it that felt like home, and the family of three agreed to stay here.
One day, while exploring the forests near his village, he came across an odd looking cave with a glowing object in the center. Walking further into the cave, the object turned out to be a sleeping, odd looking fox, with glowing patterns on his fur…Or was it a wolf? Jason couldn't tell. Still a young boy at the time, Jason's curiosity got the better of him, and he creeped close to try and touch the strange creature. The fox/wolf woke up, and, startled by Jason's appearance, bit him on his exposed left hand. Fleeing from the cave, Jason didn't return there for another couple days, after his hand healed.
During those few days, Jason had a strange reaction to the bite, certain traits in his genetics caused his body to adapt to the foreign properties left by the creature, and he gained a special control over the light, and darkness around him, and the wound caused a pattern similar to the creature's fur to tattoo itself on his left arm. When the darkness became too heavy around him, he and his family was attacked by heartless, the first time Jason's family have encountered them face to face before.
Thankfully, an elderly person in the village was powerful enough to dispatch the heartless with a slight bit of effort, and had identified that whatever it was that attracted them had been because of the changes Jason had gone through. Scared that this could cause him or his parents harm if uncontrolled, he returned to the cave after his wound had healed, hoping to find some sort of control over what's happened to him.
Jason was fortunate enough to encounter that fox creature again, and it didn't take long for either of them to discover that they now shared a sort of mental and spiritual link with one another. Able to communicate with the fox, Jason learned from the fox, who they agreed to name him as Shadow, how to control the power he had gained, to keep them from going out of control and cause himself or the people around him harm. Jason managed to befriend Shadow, and the two gradually formed a bond that was stronger than just their mental/spiritual link. After agreeing to return to Jason's home following a successful, but incomplete training session, his parents agreed to let Shadow stay close to their village, and even inside of their home when weather was overly harsh. Eventually, he was trusted enough by the parents and community to live inside of the village, making it much easier for Jason to master his powers.
Growing up, he befriended many of the children of this world, one such child was a kind girl by the name of Reiko, who had taken interest in Jason due to his outworld nature. As they grew older, they grew closer, and eventually, they became a boyfriend and girlfriend. Jason learned much about Reiko's life, including her childhood friends, family, and living as a villager in Earthsea. He even supported her decision to become a dragoon warrior, going so far as to help her find the armor, and went with her to meet her new Dragoon teammates when it was time for them all to come together.
Now 20 years old, Jason was prepared to make the next step in his relationship with Reiko. But for some reason, she had never returned from her last mission with the other Dragoons. He traveled to other villages, asking those who were close to the warriors, to see if they knew anything about what had happened, but no one knew where they were, or what might have happened to cause them to be gone from home for so long.
Determined to find out what had happened, Jason set out to other worlds, asking around to find Reiko, or any of the other Dragoon warriors, in hopes to learn the truth. But when he learned the truth of what had happened to them, could he even accept it?
