    Many talented magi
    Magical Attributes
    Origin: ???
    Elemental Alignment: Wind

    Magic Circuits
    Circuit Quantity: A++
    Circuit Quality: D-
    Circuit Composition: Poor. Tree-shaped

    Character:
    A smiling, funny man. Makes a joke of everything, always have a good pun.
    Biography:
    Spoiler:
    The Eutanis family was one of the greatest families of magi in the world. In the first Holy Grail War, they sent their most powerful mage (the head of the family) as an ''intruder", but he never came back. In the second War was the same thing. After the lost of two talented patriarchs, their bloodline faded away. Generation after generation, the magic circuits became worse, until the day that they abandoned pride and brought someone from outside, to ''reinforce'' their bloodline. That worked very well, but only for a few generations. The Eutanis' bloodline was fated to disapear.
    Assis is the second of six sons. First, his parents rejoiced when realized the gigantic number of magic circuits in Assis, considering him the "salvation of the family", so they made an exception, teaching magecraft to both the first and second son and transfering the magic crest to the second. But, after some time, Assis was considered a failure. He have a great number of magic circuits indeed, but they all are horrible, many of then being almost unusable. To put it simple, they are numerous and of very low quality. Use so many magic circuits at the same time is very dificult and all of then have little capacity, so Assis have no talent at all.
    Even with no talent, he persisted in the way of magi and entered the Magic Association. There too, he was despised and abused as the ''weakest and useless Worst one". Everyone value for quality over quantity, and Assis was the very oposite. But even with the scorn, he always accepted everything with a smile and joke.
    "Stop trying, you are nothing more than a nobody" they said"Well, this is good. 'Nobody' is perfect"
    "They are only kiding! All of then..." he always said
    Contrary to what everyone thinks, Assis is a very powerfull mage. The Eutanis is originaly a family of great researchers, their magic crest is the cristalization of numerous research tecniques developed after many generations. He used his magic crest to research and create original magecrafts, more fiting to his talents. Learning how to use the great number of circuits, he developed magecrafts impossible for ''normal magi'.


    Magecraft Related Abilities:
    Spoiler:

    Magical cluster of numerous processes, 'The World Tree Is Infinite'

    Diagram of the infinite uses, Yggdrasil Bole
    Actvation chant: "Drawing diagram, growing Bole"
    The basis of all his magecraft. He use every single one of his low-capacity circuits to generate diferent processes, creating a complex ''web'' of effects and finalities, composed of many parts of other spells. Have unbeliaveble power and uses.
    It is like a ''Magecraft computer'', processing commands and creating clusters of many small spells that can unite and compose something bigger.

    Impossible causality check-in, 'The World Tree Is Complex'
    Comprehension of the computational process, Yggdrasil Root
    "Including language, processing, processing. Grow root"
    While researching, Assis came across a certain question: "What is the most efficient form of language?". In the search for answer, he discovered the ''Tree Diagram", a method of counting that defines the time, what permits the generation of the infinite worlds. It is too a method of language that increases the efficiency of calculations absurdly, and enable consideration of causality. To put it simply, using this one can calculate the incalculable, like the exact number of the infinite possibilities in an event. Adding this to the ''Yggdrasil Bole", Assis enabled the ''comprehension of computational process'', a method that allows to put processes over processes. In other words, it can increase the number of spells in a circuit almost infinitely, but not the brute capacity. It is like a ''super-overload''.

    Assembly process of processes, 'The World Tree Is Usefull'
    Use of the counting-machine, Yggdrasil Branch
    "Numerate exits, growing branch"
    The 'Yggdrasil Bole' is only a 'system', this is the use of it. With this, he can create many little spells to actuate over a thing or event, or unite then in a magecraft comparable to grand rituals. One of the possible effects is similar to inversion of cause-consequence, but by doing many minimal adjusts in the cause to ensure the consequence.

    Absolute counting of the magnus world, 'The World Tree Is No More'
    Overload process-machine tree, Yggdrasil Flower
    "Counting, counting, considerate language and nonexistant numbers. Overload process, picking flowers"
    Pinnacle of all his research, the strongest thing he have. It is almost comparable to the Fifth and Third Sorcery. Basicaly, is manipulation of time and parallel worlds.
    Assis use the Yggdrasil Root in all of his circuits and ''Tree Diagram language" to spouting a massive torrent of infinite different small spells, manipulating every one of the infinite possibilities to recreate or ensure a future or past, allowing even 'redo' of events. With this, he can go against ANY odds in any situation.

    These abilities are certainly strong, but use a great amount of magic energy only to keep all the system running, so its use is very limitated.


    Mystic Codes/Familiars:
    Assis isnt good at biding magecraft, so he cant have familiars, only one mystic code:
    Annotations: A notepad with a few simbols. For anyone who look is only an ordinary notepad, but it is impregnated with magical energy. It is a ''memo'' like a ''key'', Assis use it to initiate the process and turn on the circuits. All of his magecrafts are complex, so he noted a few things to ensure success

    Abilities:
    Basicaly, Assis' magecraft have a simple concept: Instead of doing one big spell, he use the Yggdrasil Bole and Branch to do many small spells. The Bole is only the system he created, the Branch is the use of it, and the Root only increase the power. He use this to three main abilities:

    Induction
    Using a myriad of small spells, he can create numerous small effects in something, 'inducing' a result. For example, he can change the course of a bullet, educe the actions of someone and stuff like that.

    Compose
    Uniting certain spells, he create one bigger, more powerfull. There are numerous possibilities, some of them being more powerfull than great rituals. With support from the Yggdrasil Root, the power become absurd.

    Sniper

    "The human being is weak, very, very weak. That is why guns where so successfull, they eliminate the need for stregth"
    The only thing no one can deny: Assis is good with a gun.
    He cant use his magecrafts frequentely (because the magic energy spending) and also cant do many of the most basics magecrafts, so the only option left was weapons.
    With complete understanting of the physics and processes involving the fire of a gun, he only need a small support from Yggdrasil Branch to never miss the target. With support from Yggdrasil Flower, Assis can do impossible things with a small gun (for example, he can make a pistol shoot down an airplane in mid air, or make the shoot ricochet in an impossible manner)
    He probably is the best sniper in Magic Association, but no one cares about him.

    Creator Remarks: This is only a simple idea I had. Didnt had time to develop it, so (as you can see) isnt so... cool like the others. Just ignore it.

    Assis: Another cool sheet from you. I see you took my advice doing a more cheerful character this time around, since your previous ones were all rather gloomy. His Magecraft sounds pretty interesting (nice job on the Chuuni names, by the way), but most of its effects seem rather abstract and not easy to visualize. I'd suggest fleshing out each one of his abilities a bit more and adding more of what he can do with them in practical terms. As of now it's too much Chuuni jargon without any clear sense of how his spells would look or act in an actual story. You included some of that under his Sniper section but I think it needs a bit more, and for all his abilities rather then just Branch and Flower.

    Thaaanks!
    Well, I Will add a few things tomorrow, but here is a short explication:
    Basically, Assis have many Magic circuits, but all of Very low quality. So, instead of make one great spell, he make numerous small spells.
    The bole is only the system that he created to do this, the root is an "overload" to increase the power, the branch is the "activation key", or how he use the system (bole) and the flower is the greatest magecraft he can make with this system.
    I will specify the uses tomorrow

    Hello. I don't know if this thread is dead with all the contests going on, but I wanted to try my hand at this.

    Name: Skráarmaður Hrói Magnusson
    Alias/Nickname/Title: Serial Doodler
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30
    Height/Weight: ???
    Birthplace: Grundartangi, Iceland


    Personality
    Forte/Likes: Linguistics, silly hypothetical questions
    Weaknesses/Dislikes: Closed minds, proofreading
    Natural Talents: Lateral thinking
    Natural Enemy: ???

    Magical Attributes
    Origin: Addition
    Elemental Alignment: Earth, Water

    Magic Circuits
    Circuit Quantity: A
    Circuit Quality: C
    Circuit Composition: Snowflake

    Character:
    Deathly afraid of being compared to an old man, Hrói spends a large portion of his time and paycheck on youthful fashion and the like, not that anyone would really appreciate it at his place of business. An “older brother that can’t help but act like a younger brother”, the soul-crushing boredom of life at the bank has forced Hrói to seek safety in mental regression. Consequently, all the time he spends doodling has resulted in more than a few runic “short-circuits” that quite literally blow up in his face, but at the same time his trial and error process has made him an accomplished experimenter.

    Biography:
    Born into the ancient Icelandic Magnusson clan, it’s said that every magus in Iceland is descended from this one family or one of its many branches. Ousted by the mainland Scandinavian families centuries ago for its heretical and contradictory doctrines, the Magnussons initially settled in Höfn in the southeast, before spreading out to cover the entire island. A family that’s been left by the wayside of history, the Mage’s Association hardly remembers it exists despite several individuals of the bloodline attending the institution over the years. Devoid of finances and resources in the harsh North, the Magnussons set about establishing a future for their children by filling a hole in the magical world; that being a dedicated banking system for mages. Set up in Reykjavik, the International Magus Bank has been compared to the stereotype of the “secret Swiss bank account” for its puzzling lack of clarity in terms of business and investment practices, but one can’t fault the efficiency and safety of such a system. The Icelanders’ specific school of magic is suited to keeping track of large sums of numbers and the formulae of deposits and withdrawals, and the bank is popular with younger generations of foreign families trying to keep their personal wealth away from enemies within their own clans.

    The truth of the matter is that the bank serves the Magnussons’s purposes at a ratio of 2:1 to those that actually make use of their business. Money and artifacts are safely kept in storage, yes, but the Magnussons have created the world’s largest database of written linguistic factors from across the globe. Called the Frábærstafur, the database brings in hordes of information and is displayed in a fractal system on a giant runestone brought to Iceland from the Magnussons’s roots in Denmark. Any bank employee is allowed to experiment with the Frábærstafur on their own time, the unique properties of the Icelandic Galdristafir ensures that no one’s individual thought process can be interrupted by someone else. Hrói compares it to a “giant whiteboard from a math class, displaying a simple formula that everyone in class is allowed to add to until it becomes a giant mess”.

    What’s described to the public as a simple security measure, the bank requires all customers to submit a printed copy of their unique Crest. While weird, most customers feel nothing to worry about, as a piece of paper with their family crest on it can’t possibly be any practical use to anyone. This, however, is incorrect. Because the Frábærstafur’s system saves the trouble of the family having to marry into certain lines of magi in order to access the secrets of their crests, the Magnussons are relatively lax when it comes to personal affairs on the individual level. It does enforce a three-year required service at the bank before one is able to leave and go about their lives.
    Of course, the secrets of the Frábærstafur are life and death to the Icelanders, as the truth of the bank’s affairs would no doubt bring about a Sealing Designation upon the entire country. Hrói currently works as a teller at bank’s main branch.

    Magecraft Related Abilities:
    Magic Crest: Galdrastafir--
    The native Icelandic thaumaturgical method derived from the Norse runes of the Scandinavian mainland. It takes the shape of a densely packed wheel-like pattern on the back, and allows the possessor to encode complex runic mathematical formulas as easily as casting a single Ansuz. A fundamental departure from its ancestral crest, the “lines of code” of modern rune magecraft has been supplanted by “designing the entire microchip” according to those who possess this crest. Rather, unorthodoxically, the Norse crest is rejected as “archaic” and “a language of savages” by the Icelandic sect. Galdrastafir was designed to assist the ancient subsistence farmers and warriors of Iceland through incredibly specific means, thus the idea of single-rune answers to problems is akin to “using a rock instead of a hammer on a nail because they both accomplish basically the same thing”. But what really sets the Galdrastafir apart is its ability to seamlessly incorporate symbolic languages from other cultures and crests into its “programming language”, earning it the disparaging title of the “American English for Runes”. When pagan Iceland was subjected to the influx of Christianity, and thus Christian images and symbols, the runic inscriptions of the times mutated to incorporate the new additions, adding to its base alphabet of possibilities. The Magnusson clan thus believes that if it accumulates a base of linguistic symbols from all over the world and from every type of magecraft, simply programming a Rúdukross (“superstave” combining lines of code and modifiers, named after the Rood-Cross, the most common type of superstave from ancient times) big enough and complex enough to reach the Root is possible.

    Ægishjálmur
    False Fascination Eyes

    One of the very first of the original Galdristafir, kept intact by the main family line since its inception, and available to Hrói through the records of his crest. Ægishjálmur refers to the “helmet of terror” present in the Niflung treasure of the dragon Fafnir, later taken by Sigurd as his own. But the Icelandic sect argues that this is not the case, and that the “helmet” was but a metaphor for the insignia carved into Fafnir’s forehead. It was a popular design on Viking helmets, meant to convey a shell of the power of Fafnir’s deathly gaze. Mages of the Magnusson clan opt to have the stave tattooed onto their eyes, partly for ease of use and partly to deceive the magical world at large that they do in fact possess powerful Mystic Eyes. A target is paralyzed in place as long as eye contact is maintained, some reports even including partial cardiac arrest.

    Modify
    Prolong Phenomena

    The true worth of Galdristafir lies in its fluid modification system. A set of eight basic staves used to amplify, lessen, capture, or redirect the flow of magical energy produced by the completed stave makes up the heart of the Galdristafir ideal. Finding the “proper flow” along with the proper collection of multicultural symbolic language are the two basic principles the Magnusson clan research. Hrói displays far more talent in this particular regard, being able to apply stave modifiers externally to other magical systems, rather than incorporating the system into Galdristafir itself.

    Mystic Codes/Familiars:

    Galdrabók: The “Bible for Icelandic Mages”, it is a common mass-produced Grimoire-type Mystic Code that compiles all the basics necessary for an Icelandic magus’s success. It contains a total of 47 completed “spell” staves that are quite banal in their application, but easy enough to cast in this form. Because individual magi are so preoccupied with intense specialization, they sometimes lose the brain capacity to remember incredibly basic life-skills. It’s a bit embarrassing, but it’s fine as long as everyone is doing it, right?

    Creator Remarks:

    First time creating a magus, be gentle.

    Magnusson: Just skimmed this one, so I'll probably read it more thoroughly in the next couple days. The idea of using magic as a programming language isn't something I've seen before, and the character himself seems quite fun (a stereotypical "old man trying to appear hip and with it", basically). Nice work.

    Name: István “Stephen” Jani Gutkeled V
    Alias/Nickname/Title:“V”, Bathory’s Brat, Dragon’s Hatchling
    Gender: Male
    Age: 12(?)
    Height/Weight: 58 inches/90 pounds
    Birthplace: Ecséd, Hungary


    Personality
    Forte/Likes: Blood, action movies
    Weaknesses/Dislikes: Slasher films, taking baths
    Natural Talents: Absorption, film theory
    Natural Enemy: None?

    Magical Attributes
    Origin: Happenstance (Dragon)
    Elemental Alignment: Water

    Magic Circuits
    Circuit Quantity: E
    Circuit Quality: A+
    Circuit Composition: Simple

    Character:
    An average boy of 12 on the surface, Stephen’s biggest concern is how much fun he can have in a single day. A fan of playing outside around the family castle, his distorted mentality has allowed him to create a richly populated imaginary world that he seems only to indulge in when he’s alone in the woods. Because the clothes he’s forced to wear are mostly revealing or made of very thin fabric in order to better facilitate his blood abilities, he’s prone to coming back from a day’s romp covered in mud and practically naked. Like all young children before him, he greatly detests the daily ceremony known as “baths”, thinking them a waste of time when he could be having fun. The only difference being, however, is that Stephen bathes in a tub filled with the spilled blood of young boys. Because the baths sometimes last several hours in order for Stephen to fully consume what his body needs of the blood, his mother took to bribing him by installing a large TV in the bathroom and letting him watch movies. Like his ancestor Elizabeth before him, the movies fomented Stephen’s adoration for the performing arts. Instead of desiring to create his own, however, he took to being an amateur critic. His favorite film is Lawrence of Arabia.

    Biography:
    Born into the Gutkeled (nee Bathory) house of Hungary, which was forced to change its name to that of an ancient ancestor after the family was targeted by the many victims of Elizabeth. There is no doubt, however, that Stephen is a true “main branch” Bathory.
    He lives with his mother and his grandfather on the family estate in Ecséd, where his ancestor Stephen V Bathory, the friend of Vlad III, was born. When he was 10 years old, Stephen discovered the truth of his parents’s incestuous relationship; his mother was also his sister, raped by his grandfather to produce an heir after his mother’s mother died. This kind of relationship wasn’t anything new to the Bathory family, but Stephen grew a manic hatred for his grandfather (also named Stephen), as all young boys tend to cherish their mothers above anything and anyone else. On Stephen’s 11th birthday, his mother murdered her father, and together they consumed the elder Stephen’s body. His mother promised to spoil him, and Stephen himself promised to grow up to be a better husband for his mother (both blissfully unaware of the irony).
    The Bathory house up until this time had indulged in the practice of bathing in and consuming the virginal blood of others, but the family’s dwindling influence and resources in the modern day has forced them to purchase the bodies of homunculus makers and the like, which is quickly sinking them into debt. They are investigating alternative options, including the Holy Grail.

    Magecraft Related Abilities:
    While an ancient family in every respect other than magical, the Christianization of the Balkans and Hungary as far back as the 2nd Century suppressed and eradicated most forms of pagan magic in the area. While Stephen has the rudimentary beginnings of a Magic Crest, he carries immense magical power along these stunted circuits thanks exclusively to the outside power of his blood. Because his “fuse” is so short, overloading his circuits and exhausting himself to the point of passing out is common.

    Mixed Blood--Ordo Draconum
    The Order of the Dragon, the chivalric order created by the Holy Dragon Sigismund in the face of Islamic aggression, in which Sigismund gathered like-minded generals and rulers of Southern Europe directly threatened by Ottoman incursions. Sigismund intended to create a race of superhumans that would act in the sole defense of Christianity by exhuming the corpse of the dragon Silene; that which Saint George had killed years before, and infusing the dragon’s blood into his circle of knights. The raw power the blood of the strongest Phantasmal Beast induced in the Order was obvious, most notably the strength and tenacity of Vlad III, who took the name Dracul in honor of the Order and his father. Though diluted over the centuries, Stephen still possesses enormous physical and magical strength for a child his size. Unlike his ancestor Elizabeth, Stephen’s outward draconic tendencies are muted: his nails are feminine, yet thick and sharp, and he carries a single reverse-scale below his bellybutton.

    Sorcery Trait--Sárkányvér
    Long ago, Stephen’s family, under the direct orders of Matthias Corvinus, decided to assist Vlad III in reclaiming his Wallachian throne from the Basarab. After failing initially to regroup with a support army, Stephen’s ancestor eventually proved brave and capable enough to assist the voivode in reclaiming his homeland for the second time. As a sign of respect and gratitude, Vlad III became formal blood-brothers with Stephen’s ancestor. Unbeknownst to either of them, this exchange of blood imparted certain aspects of the man known as the Impaler onto the unassuming Hungarian family. Binding to the Bathory’s genetic code, subsequent generations would find themselves...changed. Madness and other forms of instability, both mental and physical, began cropping up in the Bathory family at an alarming rate. Culminating famously with Elizabeth Bathory’s ritualistic murder of 600 women, who believed that bathing in blood would reduce aging, the strain of Vlad’s blood that had survived inside the Bathory line was finally sated for once. That’s not to say, however, that Elizabeth was entirely incorrect.
    The root cause of the Bathory’s woes was eventually discovered, and ultimately encouraged. The true value of the Sárkányvér lies in the pseudo-vampiric qualities imparted onto the possessors. While it’s common fact that magi often consume the blood of their peers in order to restore or boost their magical energy, Sárkányvér allows for the same benefits to be reached simply by making skin contact any blood at all, much like a frog. As the Bathory house has had zero magical aptitude up until this point, the idea of reaching the Root through the consumption of blood in the name of eternal youth was preposterous, not to mention unknown. Thus, the Blood of the Dragon has no long-term beneficial effects, as the Bathorys are only simulating Dead Apostles from a distance. However, without a steady consumption of blood one way or another, Vlad’s blood will resume its attempt to reject the body, resulting in draconic disfigurement of the host.

    A variation of Vlad III’s own Noble Phantasm is available to Stephen, albeit at a price. As Vlad’s blood cells created tiny stakes inside Stephen’s body to bind themselves to the blood he absorbed through his skin, they became something of an administrator to the blood network that makes up Stephen’s body. By forcing Od through these cells, stakes made exclusively of the blood of others bursts through Stephen’s body, with Vlad’s blood acting as the framework, or “the pole that carries the spearhead”. Stephen calls it
    Demon’s Bloodsoaked Right Hand
    Kazikli Agha
    (lit.: Impaler’s Lieutenant) in reference to the fact that exhibiting the Noble Phantasm through his right arm is slightly less painful than anywhere else on his body, and the fact that Vlad and Stephen’s ancestor had a “student and master” kind of relationship.

    Mystic Codes/Familiars:
    The “Symbols of the Order”, the dragon and cross pendants Stephen wears around tightly around his neck, are said to be Mystic Codes of the Order of the Dragon. He doesn’t know what they do, unfortunately.

    Non-Magecraft Abilities:
    Stephen has a keen eye for film, which he calls his “Eye of the Critic” that he likes to make a big deal about (shouldn’t he be more concerned with his other abilities?). As long as an event can be “likened to that of a movie”, Stephen can exhibit incredibly deep insight on the matter, bordering on the realm of precognition.

    Stephen sounds like a male Elizabeth Bathory with a bit of Astolfo mixed in. I like him. His personality skirts the perfect line between adorable and terrifying and his abilities are very well fleshed out as well. I love the lore you gave on Sigismund's holy dragon order. That's so good it ought to be canon.

    Now that this thread's getting a bit busier I might post up an entry or two myself...

    I always believed that Vlad really hated Astolfo because he reminded him so much of Stephen V but with a third of the usefulness.

    Name: Gastro Adipose

    Title: "Magus Devourer"

    Gender: Male

    Age: ??? (appears somewhere in mid twenties)

    Birthplace: ???


    Appearance:
    A silver-haired man with a slender and youthful appearance, green eyes shining with a predatory glint. Dresses in black leather, with a hood usually pulled over his head and lined with decorative protrusions to resemble a gaping fanged mouth. His midriff is left bare, showing the countless gruesome scars that cris-cross his body, with one particularly gaping one over his stomach where his Mystic Code Belly of Belzebuth has been inserted. Also has unnaturally sharp teeth which can easily tear through human flesh.


    History:
    Everything of Gastro's true past and origins is shrouded in history. The only things known about him are that he is a serial killer who targets other Magi (preferably from affluent lineages), gruesomely tears apart their bodies and devours their Magic Crests. He is a bogeyman, his name spoken in fearful whispers amongst the Mages of Clock Tower.

    As Magic Crests are the pinnacle of an entire family's thaumaturgy, stealing or destroying them is a crime that strikes against the very foundation of Magi society. For his horrific crimes Gastro has been branded with a Sealing Designation, with all enforcers of the Mage's Association ordered to kill him on sight.


    Personality:
    A mysterious person; Gastro is cheerful and friendly most of the time, but shows an incredibly cruel and sadistic personality while "hunting". He has an obsession with food and describes virtually everything in terms of culinary metaphors, including emotions (good emotions taste "sweet", bad ones "sour").

    He is also obsessed with obtaining the Crests of as many Magi as possible, believing that with their accumulated knowledge he will become a being akin to 'God'. The reason he wishes to become 'God', like almost everything of Gastro's past, is shrouded in mystery. It is possible that it is even tied to the affections of a certain person he knew before awakening his Origin...

    Likes: tasty meals, knowledge
    Dislikes: bad-tasting meals, failing to catch prey
    Fortes: tracking prey, gaining knowledge
    Natural Enemy: Run Ru


    Magical Attributes:
    Origin: Assimilation (has also inherited countless false Origins through Carnivorization Eucharist)
    Elemental Alignment: Fire (can access countless other Elements through Carnivorization Eucharist)


    Magic Circuits
    :
    Circuit Quantity: A+
    Circuit Quality: Variable
    Circuit Composition: Variable


    Magecraft-Related Abilities:

    Carnivorization Eucharist
    Blood Rite Of The Devouring God

    Gastro's sole form of Magecraft, which allows him to obtain the spells and knowledge of other Magi by devouring their Magic Crests. Consumed Crests are integrated into Gastro's own Magic Circuits through his Origin of "Assimilation", allowing him to use them as if they were his own. One to actually see Gastro's Circuits would find them a gruesome patchwork of countless strands inelegantly sewn together, a hack job that more resembles the work of a butcher then a talented weaver.

    While this process does not necessarily kill the Magi in question, Gastro invariably ends up consuming more of their body then is actually necessary and killing them anyways. Given how most Magi would regard the loss of their Crest as worse then death, this might even be seen as a twisted form of mercy.

    With how long he has been hunting his "prey", Gastro has managed to obtain a substantial collection of Crests (the exact quantity is unknown, but at least numbers somewhere in the dozens), granting him a range and versatility of thaumaturgy that far eclipses most Magi. Combined with his terrifying intelligence and single-mindedness, this makes him an incredibly dangerous foe.


    Familiars/Mystic Codes:

    Belly Of Belzebuth
    Ravenous Stomach Purgatory

    A Mystic Code that Gastro has assimilated into his body. When activated, a secondary fanged mouth opens up in his belly and entrails reach out like tentacles to grab his victim and drag them inside to be devoured. These entrails are as durable as high-tension cables, and will rapidly corrode any blade used to cut through them. The nightmarish form of this ability is also likely to impose significant mental damage on the victim and everyone nearby.

    Elixer Of Jahannam
    Corrosive Salivation

    Another Mystic Code that is part of Gastro's body. It transforms all his bodily fluids into highly potent "stomach acid" that serves to corrode flesh and make his targets easier to consume. He mainly spreads it through his own saliva while biting the victim, but it also works through his blood and sweat. Needless to say, Gastro himself is fully immune.


    Non-Magecraft Abilities:

    Single-Mindedness
    Gastro is incredibly single-minded and resourceful when it comes to tracking his prey. Once Gastro has his eyes set on a particular "prey" then he will pursue them across any distance or terrain, surmounting every trap and obstacle and invariably concluding his hunt with the death of either himself or the target. (Needless to say, it has always resulted in the latter)

    Through his incredible tenacity, Gastro can shut out most forms of mental interference and obtain a superhuman degree of focus.

    Synesthesia
    Gastro possesses a unique form of Synesthesia, allowing him to perceive all kinds of information through his tongue. By licking a surface his prey has travelled on recently, Gastro could quite literally "taste" the type of their shoes, their height and weight, any other materials stuck to their shoes and a variety of other information. This greatly aids in tracking his targets, and once Gastro has acquired the "taste" of his prey he will relentlessly pursue them in order to finish his "meal".

    Self-Modification
    The aptitude to remold one's own body or merge one's own flesh with body parts of others. Gastro's Origin of "Assimilation" has given him an incredible talent for this ability, allowing him to not only absorb the crests of other Magi but various Mystic Codes into his own body- all to increase his prowess in the hunt.

    At this point, he can no longer be called a human being but something far closer to a monster.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I actually wrote up most of this sheet right at the end of the latest Mage contest, but I figured it'd be best to wait until things cooled down a bit before posting it up here. Now that Express has come and stirred up the thread again, I figured now is the right time to finish this up and post it. As always, be sure to drop by with comments and criticisms!

    After looking through both this thread and the contest thread, a point You made kind of stands out about "discount Kireis" being a problem. I remember at least two or three whose main function is "I can do anything the people I killed could do", with Gastro being the latest in that line.
    I guess my main issue is why even have him consume all these crests if he's...not going to do anything with them. Exploring having every bodily fluid be turned into acid would be more interesting, imo.

    Fair enough, and I do remember the comment about those kinds of characters being overused. I just thought I had a somewhat unique take on it.

    He definitely can cast spells from the Crests he consumes, I just didn't bother to list them since he has like an insane amount. That'd be something to show in a fanfic rather then a simple character profile, though I do imagine he'd have a spell (stolen from a Scandinavian Magi) that creates ravenous wolf familiars to chase after his targets. As well as many, many others.

    Thanks for the feedback, BTW.

    Name: Julian Reincore Drochshúil
    Alias: “Basilisk”

    Gender: Male
    Age: 26
    Height/Weight: 5’11/158 lbs.
    Birthplace: United States

    Personality:
    Likes: Quiet, practicing magecraft
    Dislikes: Foods of poor quality, loud idiots
    Natural Talent: Photography
    Natural Enemy: Barthomeloi Lorelei


    Magical Attributes:
    Origin: Mortis
    Elemental Alignment: Earth, Aether

    Magic Circuits:
    Quantity: 34
    Quality: B
    Circuit Composition: Ingrained

    Bio
    The third child of mid tier magus family the Reincores, he was quickly sent to the Drochshúil as a child. Upon arrival, his origin, magic circuits, and elemental alignment were checked before he had been there for an hour. With his dual alignment and origin, he held capability for the founder’s own magic eye, a Mystic Eye of Death Perception the founder inherited from the basilisk. He was trained in the art of using a magic eye and how to control it, until it was finally implanted in his late teens.

    He’s since then specialized in Dead Apostle hunting, as his powerful eye and powerful Reinforcement can make short work of most bloodsuckers, but as it causes him large amounts of pain to use his eye he only goes out every couple of months. During a hunt in Scotland, his kill was stolen by a mysterious woman, who he insulted for stealing his money. This led to a minor fight, but neither went full out and it ended in a draw. Unknown to him, he had just traded blows with none other than the Vice Director, Barthomeloi Lorelei.

    The entire clan was in panic, their entire association was at risk because one of their own had just punched the goddamn Queen of the Clock Tower! But, to their surprise, there was no political backlash to the organization or to Julian, but instead, they received a threat by Barthomeloi that the next time she saw Julian, she would kill him for damaging her honor.

    Currently, he’s at his home in London for several months as emergency back up, as his colossal fuck up has earned him house arrest and a lot of his privileges stripped for the time being.

    Character
    A quiet, reserved man, he only has two things he finds truly fun. Learning more about magecraft, and taking photos of whatever interests him.
    He says to hold no grudges, as he sees it as a waste of one's time and mental power. However, he holds only one true grudge, and that's against Barthomeloi.

    He has a large pride in his work as both an Enforcer and as a photographer, so when his kill was stolen he went into a rage, fighting her with all of his strength save his eye, but failed in sufficiently doing anything other than ripping up her skirt and sleeves while he lost his jacket in the battle. With his ban as result of her, he has sworn to get payback, showing her the true power of the Basilisk.


    Magecraft-Related Abilities
    Mystic Eye of Death Perception: A type of Mystic Eye/Pure Eye hybrid so rare it is thought to not even exist by even True Ancestors. Julian's are uniquely powerful as they received their power from a basilisk, a Monstrous Beast with powers reaching that of Divine Beasts, able to kill anything it looks at with a single glance. As the ability has been severely weakened over centuries of non-use and having been adapted into a human, it cannot kill with a glance and is limited to only human targets, so killing non-living/non-animate objects such as a wall or object and is limited to only the points of death. However, the points of death he sees are rather thick as result of his eye's power, but it comes at a steep price.

    As eyes with such a pure form of killing should never have been given to a human being, and due to it's great power it is constantly killing it's host. The cells around his eye socket are suffering necrosis as the eye continuously kills the cells existence around it. It is so rapid that if he doesn't get it actively checked as often as he can, or he overuses his eye, it will spread to his brain and cause it rot, killing him from the inside out.

    Reinfocement: Julian is master at reinforcing his body, able to make his body act with fifteen times the power of an average human being. However, this high level reinforcement can only last several minutes before he starts feeling lethargic and drained.


    Family History
    In 1220, a caravan was attacked by a basilisk in Ireland, the beast’s Mystic Eyes killing all the guards and slaughtering nearly the entire caravan. Among them was a nameless bastard of a magi clan, running from his past to try and start a new life.

    When the beast's gaze landed on his, his own Mystic Eyes of Absorption activated for the first and last time, absorbing the effects of the monster's eyes and reversing them onto the basilisk, killing it instantly. The magus’ developed a great fear of his eyes, and swore to contain them to make sure no one died from his horrid gaze, and founded the Drochshúil organization, devoted to the investigation and containment of Mystic Eyes.

    Originally an organization one is born into, it eventually expanded to spreading it’s gazes onto the unwanted children of magus families, adopting them into their clan in the 1600s. For thousands of years, it has done the process of enacting Sealing Designations and monitor risky Mystic Eye users from a distance, intervening when necessary and either hypnotizing or killing the wielder of the eyes and harvesting them for further study and prevent them from being used by necromancers.

    But in 1859, the then head of the clan, Irish magus Ferguson “Balor” Ockshards noticed that several members possessed Pure Eyes, the eye's effects making them far stronger in the field at locating possible traps from the target's magecraft. With multiple cases of evidence in favor, he authorized members to implant the collected Mystic Eyes into themselves, as long as the eyes were compatible with the magus and their effects could be easily contained using a conventional enchanted eyepatch. Since then, they’ve become a respected organization in the field of Mystic Eye capabilities, several of it’s members becoming reliable Enforcers. They are held in a similar manner to the Yggdmillenia family, but are more dependent on the Clock Tower for finding magi with Mystic Eyes, and are treated very much like just a special branch of Enforcers.

    <I>

    So I came up with the concept of someone using a basilisk's eye after rewatching Harry Potter, but it was only after this sheet was halfway finished did I remember that "transferring" Mystic and Pure Eyes is as far as I know, an impossibility in the Nasuverse unless someone uses True Magic to mess with the soul. But, I wasted a couple hours on it and I like the concept so I decided to upload it anyway.
    When will you come to my Chaldea Jalter?
