    Her sheet's still too personal to me to post here publicly (or in anything like a graveyard), so I won't be putting Caster of Blue up, other than to comment she's probably who you thought she was. ^^;

    Caster of White was pretty... and for awhile I'd actually thought she was her husband, genderbent. Oops.

    Secretive Sunny... but Secrets are meant to be kept, right?
    As for thinking she was her husband, I wouldn't fault you since this is Type Moon. I was looking forward to sharing a cup of tea together... ( T w T)

    Sheet formatting is one thing, but as long as it's readable it's okay. Like I do prettification wizardry only to have fun -- that isn't something you need to know to write good.

    I have a master’s degree and these days my entire job is legal and clinical documentation

    and the other day KT said something like “you get used to toby’s random commas and capital letters”

    as I said to a buddy when I passed my licensure, “the system fails again!”

    So I forgot post my Reclaimation sheet(s) here

    Here's the one I sent to Bloble: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    Here's the actual one I sent to Mellon: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing


    Explanation why there are Two Versions
    So I wanted to play a double/triple agent character... whose loyalty depended on the social links from both sides. Most importantly was the romantic social link I wanted to form with an enemy player (Bloble). So Bloble and I write this nice Romeo and Juliet story. We worked on power sets kind of together. Once everything was said and done, I duplicated the sheet and added a few minor changes then sent it off to Mellon.


    tl;dr Kuro made a triple agent.

    Vier has done nothing wrong. Except breaking Aleen... But aside from that!

    A few people were curious about her identity back in the day so I might as well spill the beans.

    Spoiler:
    I can’t speak as a seeker of eternal life, but generally very few people live as long as they would want. I suspect that it is not so much the allure of shaking off the shackles of mortality that drives those seekers but that of a choice, of control over that mysterious and inexorable thing — fate.

    My brother once said that seeking immortality is a fool's quest. That true immortality is that of one’s great deeds inscribed forever in the hearts and minds of men, where they will live forever. I suspect that at his last moments he may have revised that statement.

    Me, I lived long after his death. I lived to see all that he had built throughout his life - his legacy - crumble. His generals tearing the empire apart and squabbling for the pieces like rabid dogs. His siblings used as pawns, his mother slaughtered, his throne usurped, his wife and son humiliated for years before being put to the sword. I watched his beautiful dream collapse — and I did nothing.

    Just like when I watched his retreating back when he left for his life’s grand adventure. Just like when I did not force him to drink the potion and become one of the immortals as he rightly should have been. “Only the lives of mortal men truly hold meaning”. Hah, such drivel! As if dead men would find that a comfort. Hades is filled with regret, not fulfillment. And yet I dared not force him. Perhaps because in my eyes, he was already a God.

    A hero’s regrets might be a love lost, a life cut short, a deed that can’t be undone. But I am no hero. I don’t regret my actions, but my lack of them. I stood by powerlessly while the usurpers destroyed my home and family, let myself be used by them, warmed their bed and bore their accursed seed. And until the very end, even as guilt ate me from within, I remained a coward and refused to acknowledge it, clinging to some delusion that it would all become better somehow, as if hope alone would mend anything.

    That kind of selfish hope is only born of powerlessness. When even that was shattered, when my own child tried to kill me, I had nothing. I was empty. I thought that this was the end simply because I had nothing more to lose and no more tears to shed. But that was another selfish hope, you see. The powerless don’t get to decide their own fate.

    I finally realised when I threw myself into the sea, when the waves battered me against the rocks and sank me into the depths, when despite that all I failed to die. To witness all that my brother created be destroyed and be unable to stop it, to not even be able to atone but only to bear that endless grief and guilt for eternity.... What else could that be but my deserved punishment?

    He hadn’t known, back then. He’d said that he loved my hair most of all because they reminded him of Okeanos, of a beautiful ideal that set his heart alight with passion and hope. By bathing them with the water of immortality, he said he would preserve this ideal forever, so that it would never be tarnished or forgotten. The Fates are very poetic in their cruelty, aren’t they?

    And yet, that was the one thought that kept me from madness in those long years. I was the final emblem of his legacy. Even when the last of the empires raised by the usurpers fell, his dream lived on. The thought that I existed for him, and that he survived through me comforted me. I wished with all my heart that this was true, and that one day my worthless, endless life could be exchanged for a miracle - for his sake. And eventually, my very first selfless hope was answered.

    ---Kind Master, do not fret for me. I have found my resolve in something I must do. If there is something that you are willing to lay your life for as well, I will pledge my all to you so that you will achieve it. After all, I’m not quite a goddess of victory, but perhaps the next best thing!
    Spoiler:


    Thessalonike of Macedon

    Class: Berserker
    Alignment: Neutral Good

    A princess of Macedon born to King Philip II and a Thessalian noblewoman, her name itself a commemoration of the king's conquest of the region. Out of all of Philip's children she has been recorded to have had the least eventful life, alternately enjoying the leisurely life of the court or being swept up in the tumult of the scramble for succession with little agency or initiative of her own, and she outlived all her siblings even though it is noted that she did not escape a violent death. Indeed, compared to her sisters, the capable queen-regent of Epirus and the fierce Illyrian battle-princess, she is barely a footnote in history. A girl who received the affection of great men but always lived in their shadows, her figure nonetheless acquiring greater dimensions through the lens of myth.

    In the medieval Alexander Romance, one of the fantastic feats attributed to Alexander the Great is the discovery of the Fountain of Youth. It is said that after acquiring a phial of the wondrous liquid, he bathed his half-sister's hair with it, rejecting immortality himself. When in time he died, that same sister despaired at his death that could have been preemptively avoided and flung herself into the raging sea to join him, but having become immortal she instead took the form of a mermaid and from that day roams the seas asking each ship she comes across: "Does King Alexander live?" Soothing her grief by saying that he is alive and still continuing his conquest of the Earth will appease her; telling her that he is dead will throw her into a rage and she will transform into a monstrous Gorgon, sinking both ship and crew to the bottom of the ocean. The story has survived in this form in the tales of sailors and travelers and the ethnic folklore until the present day.

    The degree to which history and myth overlap cannot be known, as myth that has gathered more belief than history becomes history itself. What is certain is that Thessalonike was not an existence that would qualify as one of mankind's premier souls, the Heroic Spirits, on her own. To begin with, the law of the World concerning the immortals dictates that they eventually give up their human nature to become things akin to phenomena. At most, she could materialise as a composite wraith formed from the phantoms of other similar tales of women entangled with love, despair, eternal life and the waters, such as Melusine, Yao Bikuni, and Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid. For her to be summoned into a Servant container as her own complete being, something must have compensated for the considerable gap in her eligibility as a Heroic Spirit.

    It was a wish. A prayer to the World for another's sake, a pledge of eternal servitude in exchange for a chance to overturn fate. A desolate girl traded away oblivion to grasp at a single shining hope from the abyss of her despair.

    You realise, don't you. The mermaid roams the seas to this day. Whether she will succeed or fail in a time distant to her she is already paying the price, forever.




    Statistics

    Height: 1,57m
    Weight: 49kg
    Theme Song: 豚乙女- 暗夜航路

    Parameters:
    STR: C
    END: C
    AGI: C
    MGI: B
    LCK: B



    Class Skills

    Mad Enhancement

    • E: Costs 25 prana per turn for the Master to maintain. At this rank, the Servant gains a rank up to STR for the duration of the skill. However, the mental state of Servant somewhat deteriorates, resulting in emotional instability. Defense against mental interference spells is reduced. Activation is required to make full use of the Constitution of the Gorgon skill. However deep her anguish, Thessalonike did not fall into madness; in truth, madness would have been a mercy for her. As such, this skill exists purely because of the folkloric image of the raging Gorgon and the Class container itself.



    Personal Skills

    Constitution of the Gorgon

    • B: The sublimation of a dominant myth that has overshadowed the historically recorded figure. A composite skill of Innocent Monster and Monstrous Strength that embodies the nature of a mermaid, it allows for the replenishment of magical energy through proximity with large bodies of water and the temporary rank-up to physical parameters. The longer Berserker is under the influence of this skill, the more she transforms into the monster of legend, a Monstrous Beast of the waters with sharp claws and an armour of tough scales. At that extreme point, a loss of reason befitting a true Berserker occurs.

      At this rank, Berserker is in posession of a physique that is not fully human. Once activated, STR is boosted by a single rank. When close to large bodies of water (rivers, seas, etc) she also gains one rank in END. When in water, she furthermore gains one rank in AGI. In addition, under these circumstances the Servant’s body takes on the characteristics of an Elemental, reducing the cost of Mad Enhancement to zero and allowing for the automatical replenishment of magical energy at a rate of 20 units per turn.

      However, the longer the period of time spent under effect of this skill, the more significant the degradation of the Heroic Spirit into that of a Monstrous Beast. Mental capacity is progressively lost in a similiar fashion to the Mad Enhancement skill, culminating in a final transformation into a mindless monster of legend, completely unheeding of all reason. A Command Seal, at the very least, is necessary in order to restore sanity to the Servant. The speed of onset for this effect is dependent on Berserker's proximity to water.

      Interestingly enough, the word "gorgon" acquired a meaning beyond specifically denoting the infamous trinity of Medusa, Stheno, and Euryale, enduring throughout the ages in the Greek language to finally come to mean "mermaid".


    Emblem of Victory

    • B: A skill possessed by those who embody or herald the concept of victory. At this rank, the Servant can be said to have served as the inspiration to a grand figure who shaped his or her age. Checks and saving throws acquire plus effects both for the Servant and her allies. In addition, when a clash of equivalent powers occurs, the Servant and her allies are considered to possess the upper hand.

      Thessalonike was named in celebration of Philip's decisive victory in Thessaly, and that name in turn was given to what would for the next two millennia be one of the most important cities of the Balkans. But most of all, she herself embodies a certain conqueror's ideal and dream that spanned continents, across the hearts of men and even time and space itself.


    Mana Burst (Water)

    • A: The capability to infuse weapons with magical energy. Said magic energy is infused with Berserker’s own element, causing additional damage. At this rank, the Servant’s attacks are accompanied by tidal waves and roaring bursts of water. By paying 20 units of prana, the user can increase his STR or AGI by one rank. In addition, basic water-based ranged attacks and skills can be used by paying 50 units. The scale of these effects is one rank lower than the user’s skill rank.



    Noble Phantasms

    Mermaid's Tears
    The Potion of Immortality


    Type: Support
    Rank: C
    Range:
    Targets: 1

    Description: A glass phial containing water from the Fountain of Youth, or so it is said. A few drops will heal even grisly wounds, and imbibing it can truly bring someone back from death's doorstep - if a Servant consumes it, it is as if they have gained an extra life. However, Berserker cannot use it on herself in any way.

    In truth this was one of the treasures looted from the vaults of Babylon when the city was taken by Alexander. Whether it is the same potion as the one found in a certain ancient king's treasury which found its way from one royal vault to another throughout the millennia or merely a pale imitation of the philter created from the Herb of Immortality is a mystery lost to the ages.


    The King Lives On
    Dream of Okeanos


    Type: Barrier
    Rank: A
    Range: 1~99
    Targets: 1

    Description: The shared dream of two hearts forever separated. If Aionioi Hetairoi is the actualisation of the experiences shared by each and every soldier of the King's army, then this Noble Phantasm is the manifestation of the ideal that drove the King to the ends of the Earth. It is a Reality Marble born from the image indelibly etched in the hearts of the Conqueror King and his Muse. Within it is recreated the farthest shore at the end of the world, the edge of boundless Okeanos, and it is there that Alexander the Great will live once more to rule and conquer the world.

    Under the same principle as the Army of the King he is as much a Servant as any, with access to his armaments and his abilities, but the burden of the bounded field's upkeep for each turn lies entirely on Berserker, and by extension her Master. As the world within the barrier is in essence a vast body of water, Skills dependent on proximity to water will activate inside the Reality Marble. Once the battle is concluded or he himself is vanquished Alexander will fade away, but that too is only temporary. As long as Thessalonike lives, Alexander will never truly die.

    Thessalonike's cherished miracle. At its core, a sister's love for her brother. Perhaps the King turned away from the Far East for the road back home because he realised where Okeanos truly lay all along.



    ---My wish? Only that my King be granted a second life for the one he left unfinished. My only happiness would be that he might stand upon this world again and fulfill his dreams to the utmost. If I could claim to know one thing of him, it is that he would want this too.

    For that I do not mind my eternal servitude. Because he will always be with me.





    Bluzerker from Reclamation. A character idea so old I'd scribbled it on a torn-off page of my high school notebook, which I was delighted to play even for a little while. I didn't get nearly enough mileage out of her NP use aversion and reunion angst, her interactions with Alexandra, the red herrings about being a Gorgon and a Beast (of Alaya), or the projected Good End where she'd throw off the shackles of the world and join the Hetairoi, but what can ya do.

    Damn now I'm sad I didn't get to see more of her.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Suppose I’ve put off posting Caster of Blue from Reclamation long enough.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...WNB2-jlos/edit

    With the disclaimer that Item Creation was an open-ended skill, with items approved on a case by case basis, so no items that did not appear in the work itself were fully vetted or approved.

    She was basically a train wreck but I wanted to capture more of her personality and complications since most incarnations of her I’ve seen scrub her pretty clean or reduce her to an assistant to Babbage.
