Asseton, Xineren, capital of the EmpireHeight:
98k (218 lbs)Age:
Queen Saran's personal guard, rank 2Personality:
Arrogant, domineering and nasty-tempered.
Nihilistic, sociopathic and cynical.
Merciless and unkind but not petty, although he is not above bullying beings he perceives weaker than him.
Always in for a good fight, likes brutal combat.
Believes males of any race ought to be hunters or warriors and those that aren't are pussies. Despises weak and spoiled people.
Despite his boorish attitude, always pays attention to what is being said. Has an outstandingly good memory and often remembers things that the others don't.
His demonic nature makes him intensely sexual. Has no compunctions about satisfying himself with random females of any race and even other males sometimes. Family:
Kheresh (father), Nejla (mother, deceased), aunt, uncle and cousins (unknown). Story:
Tahir, also known as "Al Shaïtan", is the bastard child conceived upon the rape of a human female by a male demon. As usual with demonic births, his mother didn't survive childbirth. His mother's family nurtured him as a young infant but soon left him to handle himself when his demonic features became evident such as his unusually long canine teeth and his clawed hands.
Tahir grew up on the streets of Xineren, living from petty thief and smuggling. The hardships he endured got him to develop his powers at an early age and to master them on his own. At the age of 9, he was known as "Al Shaïtan" and decided to leave his native city and never return, in hopes of starting a new life and prove himself. He wandered in Shatterland for some time, seeking to fight always stronger enemies which led him to battle regularly with Soces, Femisoces and Underdwellers as well as other residents of Shatterland, Sakels, Badejos etc... All of which gave him good knowledge of many people's habits and techniques. He eventually took leadership of a mercenary band after beheading their chief. He then embraced his demonic side by revelling in mindless slaughter and pillage of small communities with his underlings. But he still felt a void in his heart and, after some time, left his band in order to find his own purpose. He lived as a vagabond on the frontiers of Shatterland before meeting Izekondi fav.me/d2h7kj0
, the only man who would defeat him. But instead of finishing Tahir off, the monk offered to spare his life if he agreed to follow him to Aquanne. Izekondi was indeed impressed by the powers of the young half-breed.
Tahir agreed and was introduced to Queen Saran fav.me/d2j3urt
who immediately sensed the man's nature. She offered to give him a place and a position in her army in exchange of a generous payment. Having no better option, Tahir accepted.
Aside from Izekondi who he begrudgingly yet sincerely respects and esteems, Tahir is unconcerned about others of the group, except Sumire fav.me/d2hd5py
whom he's head over heels for. He is pretty forward and unromantic about it. Powers:
Tahir is a half-demon and possesses naturally enhanced senses, superhuman strength, stamina and a healing factor. He is immune to diseases.
Due to his demonic heritage, his eyes blaze when at full power and he excretes an acidic sweat that can eat through almost any matter. At full strength, he becomes surrounded by an acid mist that can melt all projectiles aimed at him. His bite is also poisonous and he can also breath out an acid cloud that has the same effect as his sweat.
Tahir also wields limited forbidden magic and has mid-level telekinesis. He is very resilient to psychic attacks but not immune to them thanks to his training with Izekondi.
He is a superior hand-to-hand brawler and is extremely resourceful in direct combat. Weapons:
A two-bladed war axe. Weaknesses and annoying traits:
Tahir isn't called "Al Shaïtan" for nothing. He loves battles and thrives on violence. Despite trying to better himself, he is mostly amoral and doesn't care about how he does a job as long as it's done.
He acts very chauvinistic around women and generally doesn't like being ordered by females. Often challenges Derva fav.me/d2h7ad6
or Lady Senami fav.me/d2pvsro
when they tell him to do something. Always contends he doesn't fight at full strength against them.
Like all demons and their half-breeds, Tahir doesn't recover naturally from a wound made by a holy weapon or holy magic and isn't very strong against water-based attacks.
Tahir actually doesn't know where he belongs and feels lonely and misunderstood when he's being true to himself. But he is too prideful to ever admit to a weakness.
Another half-demon. But this time on the side of Good, apparently. Yes, he loves Sumire, or at least is VERY attracted to her but well... Sumire being who she is, you already know it won't be that simple.
And, as you may already have noticed, he and Chandraki are pretty similar... I'll let you guess why.
