"If mankind is the donkey then universal understanding is that little dangly stick with a carrot on the end."

Kiara 'Benighted' Tzul



«««IDENTITY»»»

Full Name: Kiara Tzul
Nickname(s): Kia
Codename: Benighted One
Alias(es): Tzul the Ignorant
Age: 18
Race: Augmented Human (Magically Altered)
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral


«««PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION»»»

Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Green
Gender: Female
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 130lbs
Other Traits: Kiara is ethnically Mayan and has darkened skin owing to a Mesoamerican climate. She has a very long ponytail often beaded or in a hair clasp. She is fond of jewelry, particularly short neck rings, chokers, arm cuffs, ankle cuffs, and ear-rings. She has a web-like series of tattoos travelling from the back of her waist and down both legs. Often for her costume she will wear feathers taken from various birds or else ferns, carry a staff, and don an elaborate mask.


«««SKILL SET»»»

Powers
All of Kiara's powers are magic based and are linked to the duende trapped inside of her by her tattoos.

Astral Assault – The ability to harness the body's inner astral energy and use it offensively. Kiara predominately uses this to strike at a person's own reserves of astral energy, or rather their aura. The attack will bypass physical toughness and sap an opponent of vitality, making them greatly fatigued over prolonged contact. Eventually an opponent will 'zonk out' and become unconscious until they can regain their energy through rest. In the meanwhile a person struck by this attack may be knocked down or otherwise shunted.

Astral energy may also be used to strike at spirits and the intangible. In this instance Kiara is able to rip apart the incorporeal being, effectively killing it. A spirit's ability to resist destruction is directly proportional to its spiritual energy and a sufficiently powerful spirit would be able to stave off its demise.

* This ability also gives the leverage necessary to lift beings, especially herself. Kiara can thus levitate from the ground, and propel herself at speeds of 35mph.

* Furthering its effects on the intangible, Kiara may use astral energy to intercept and block other types of energy. Wave-forms she would otherwise be unable to physically impede she could do so using this ability. Such as anything from the electromagnetic spectrum, electricity, and blasts of directional magic. Psionic energy can be weakened but not entirely blocked, only its power waned.

An astral assault cannot damage anything else on the mortal plane, which means objects of any kind.

Astral Infusion – This ability allows the user to make and break spiritual bonds between two or more items/beings. Kiara could choose to bond herself to an object; which would mean she would always know where that object was, nobody but her would be able to touch the object without a burning sensation, and the object would move towards her when willed. She is also able to channel her astral attacks through an object she has bonded with, but this amounts to little more than parlour trick and provides no additional advantage.

* If Kiara chose to bond herself to a person; both she and that person would know where each other were and know when the other was under some form of physical or psychological turmoil, or even if they had died. In addition Kiara could channel her astral assault along the spiritual bond, thus attacking the connected person directly. More benevolently she can grant people short glimpses of her astral sight.

* Finally she may break bonds created by means outside of her own. Though tampering with them would prove more difficult and may even be impossible for one of her capabilities.

Astral Sight – The ability to perceive the imperceptible including various forms of life energy or essence. Kiara could use this to analyse a person's aura or astral energy, which may give her a clue as to their magical capabilities. It would see through invisible veils and hidden places. Otherwise it would allow her to see through various illusions, especially those invoked by magic.

Skills
* Possesses great intuitive insight when it comes to the incomprehensible and the mysterious unknown.
* Highly educated herbalist when it comes to plants of her native country of Belize.
- Knowledgeable of obeah lore, ritual, and fake spells.
- Good at sewing; makes her own clothes.
- Speaks English, a form of Mayan language, and some Spanish.

Physical Weaknesses
If Kiara's tattoos were ever removed, she would be unable to use her abilities and start to go insane.

Astral Assault – The beam of astral energy can be dodged since this attack is directional. Hiding behind a solid object is also sufficient to stop this attack and wearing a suit of armour would make the astral energy worthless. Virtual beings like robots and androids would also be immune to the effects of astral energy. People who have a lot of energy will take more hits before going unconscious but people with limitless energy would shrug off attacks. Beings of powerful spiritual energy, such as most cosmic beings and other astral users, would find the success of this attack negligible.

This ability's major weakness is its inability to damage or otherwise move objects, it is restricted to living creatures, spiritual beings (particularly the undead), and energy. As such, she is vulnerable to weapons, especially guns.

Astral Infusion – Kiara can only infuse her soul to a maximum of five things at a time. For objects she must make physical contact to establish a link. For people she must have their permission, although people can be tricked for consent in a similar way most demons operate.

Maintaining a constant link to things that are distant is inadvisable, as the astral connection may be intercepted by other astral manipulators and used to hurt Kiara. In the same way Kiara can launch her astral assault down a link, the person on the other end (or a third party in-between) can fire magic back at her.

Objects she has bonded with can be no bigger than a car and can only move towards her under willpower if they weigh less than she can lift. Killing a person or breaking an object will severe a link and prevent Kiara from possibly tracking it. Furthermore, it would cause a feedback loop that would agonise Kiara, and if more than one is done in rapid succession, might invoke a heart attack.

Astral Sight – Certain magic users might be able to hide their aura from her. She can not make use of her sight in darkness. This ability does not extend to scientific invisibility (e.g. bending light) or scientific illusions (e.g. holograms).

Mental Weaknesses
- Kiara was home schooled, and not very well, she is poorly educated.
- A lot of Kiara's theories on the supernatural often completely lack evidence and can sound far-fetched, which can be detrimental when she's right.
- She encourages ignorance and tries to stifle unnecessary exploration, which can be a difficult position to defend in an enlightened society.
- She's fairly forgetful.

Equipment
Mask – Kiara has created a variety of wooden, feathered masks in the Tiki style. They hide her identity and are suppose to frighten spirits, though there isn't a lot of that these days.

Staff – A simple wooden staff that Kiara occasionally tops with an imitation skull. It has no practical function, but Kiara carries it around in hopes that it may fool people into thinking it is the source of her power.

«««CEREBRAL PROFILE»»»

Personality
Kiara is a girl of strong beliefs which she doggishly pursues with equal parts wisdom and mania. While she is not well read, she is often able to emulate complex philosophies and apply them to everyday life. Philosophies she takes from include obeah doctrine, fallibilism, and “ignorance is bliss”. She sees the pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge itself as not just pointless but damaging to the universe as a whole. There is a balance, she believes, between the known and the unknown that will exist regardless of how much is learned. All discovery can do is create new and possibly intractable problems in response as the scales even.

She approves of keeping secrets and is against the free dissemination of information to the masses. What little she has been taught was through word of mouth and not textbooks. That's not to say she wouldn't pursue new information were it of immediate benefit. Despite this she has a professional reputation for wisdom and good judgment.

Kiara feels a sense of unity with the unknown. She is given to moments of spontaneous creation where she will deduce something without herself knowing how. It is a moment of innate inspiration owing to the duende that has possessed her in youth. Usually accounts of duende possession would afford a person intuitive knowledge of instruments or dance, but for Kiara it manifests as sagacious conjecture over spiritual matters. It cannot be taught and Kiara often tries to rationise her own insight by making faulty deductions and noticing vague associations. As such, many people would view her process as illogical.

Due to her unique relationship with the incomprehensible, Kiara feels it is her duty to combat hostile manifestations of these forces. If it is dark, mysterious, and malicious she will stand in its way. She is incurious by nature and loves a cliffhanger, but that doesn't mean she doesn't still get frightened. Her fear is not quelled by knowledge but faith. Faith that she was meant to survive despite jumping into every situation blind.

On matters known, Kiara comes across less a sage individual and more of a dunce. She tries to laugh off instances of idiocy but can be scatterbrained, slow on the uptake, or just plain ignorant. She treats people well, hospitality being important to her community, and has a calm demeanour.

«««PERSONAL BACKGROUND»»»

Family Members:
- (1) father, obeah shaman
- (2) mothers?! one biological, one adopted
- (3) brothers

Place of Origin:
- Belize

History
Kiara was born into a ramshackle town on the edges of the Belizean jungle. Her community was poor, mostly farmers and livestock owners. Not a lot of the national GDP was sent their way, which resulted in Kiara being home schooled instead of attending an actual educational establishment. Her father taught her letters and numbers but was pretty bad at other academics. To compensate he taught her his trade. Mr Tzul acted as a shaman in the community, since he was practicing obeah. People would come to him with requests for blessings or curses and her father would provide. He made no qualms about using his magic for good or evil.

The daughter learned all the showmanship and ceremony. She was taught how to wield plants in the forest and create dolls. Her education only really stalled because of her insistence that her dad stop ruining his magic act by revealing its secrets. She was much happier to wallow in its mysticism. Explaining things would kill the joy. Her father feared she was not getting the point.

At the age of seven she was sent into the forest alone to gather some herbs. She strayed from a beaten path and got lost as darkness rolled in. In the scrub she found a small man about four feet in height. It was a dwarf-like creature called a duende. She did not know she was offending it when she offered her hand. Duende had four fingers, and to not hide your thumb was an insult to them. The creature attacked Kiara and possessed her. From the soles of her feet it moved upwards. Her father found her screaming and diagnosed the problem.

Try as he might he could not dislodge the entity from her. Duende possession often afforded a person great talent in music or dancing. However it could also drive a man insane, and Kiara was only a little girl. Over the growing months Kiara became more and more peculiar. She was going unhinged and could often be found dancing naked in the forest at night. Her father exhausted his knowledge of the supernatural and still could not cure her. It was Kiara herself who found a solution.

In a rare moment of lucidity she asked her father, “If it is now in me, is it not driving itself insane?” To which her father answered that it would leave her once it had reduced her. “Then trap it.” Knowing that the duende entered by the soles of her feet, her father applied sealing magic to her legs. They came in the form of tattoos. Before now they had been used to ward off possession, but they ended up working just as well in reverse. And like the little girl suspected – her dementia stopped. The dwarf did not want to become stuck in the body of a lunatic.

There were side effects. Kiara had adopted abnormal behaviour. She was given to daydreaming and not good with her memory. Furthermore her unconventional ideas kept coming. Where spirits took to haunting she told occupants to mount their doors upside-down and place their welcome mats the wrong side of an entrance. Confused – the spirits left. When the evil eye of a sisimito promised to rob a man of his life, she theorised that it was possible to remove the curse by holding his funeral ahead of time and hiding him in a coffin until the death spirits that circled moved on.

Her reputation was made in youth. People from other villagers would ask to see the girl shaman. This displeased her father, for despite her successes, she still refused to be taught his tricks. She had no magic of her own. Kiara resolved this by inventing additions to her tattoos. They began to tap into the internal reservoir of the duende, drawing out its astral energy, which was merged with her own. From then on she took a more active role in combating the supernatural.

Although familiar with the supernatural, Kiara met her first Unknown at the age of eight. An entity of despair she called 'Sir Tutor' possessed her father and was unaffected by all the techniques they usually used to combat evil spirits. It imparted to her that 'anything can be' and that the universe had unexplored depths which could never be touched by knowledge and understanding.

After saving her dad, she began to create her own philosophy. She became a champion of ignorance and a shield against the strange; instances of terror outside the norm. The supernatural didn't count. In this age of heroes and villains they had long since integrated themselves into the awareness of society. Her focus were on threats more clandestine; the uncomprehended and unrecognised.

The journey took her far from her roots, further than she had ever travelled before. She wandered Central America, the Caribbean, and the Pacific tackling problems no one else could fathom. She met the races that bred among us and walked islands no one knew were there. She saw a dozen hells from within easy reach of a cup-holder, and found great empires reduced to but a spec. She was slain on the battlefield once and for all, only to be revived in that same exact moment. She discovered what it meant to live without identity and she became intimate with the basest part of the human condition. She has seen rain fall skywards and tweaked the nose of entities without a face.

And she isn't done yet. Now she heads into California, following grave whispers of darkness arising in the north. She is quite ignorant of the Titan summons at current.


«««Sample RP»»»

Benighted pinched her nose against the sulphur fumes, and then on impulse, checked to see that her eyebrows hadn't been singed off. Demons had a bad habit of spitting embers everywhere willy-nilly, "You're free. The demon's contract was met. It won't get your soul."

The foolish teen who had hired her shook his head to clear the terror. The reality of what had almost happened to him beginning to sink in, "H-How did you buy it off? I'm a law student. I looked through that contract. The disbursement fees if I tried to cheat him on assets were..." He trailed off.

The shaman looked blankly back, "Oh. Yeah I didn't read that. I just assumed if I gave him some other souls in place of yours then things would be fine."

"You gave him someone else's soul? Who?" The lad didn't know whether to be horrified or thankful.

"More than just one person's. I gave him a whole pack. Do you think that was too much?"

"But where did you get those? Were they yours to give?"

Kiara poked the cardboard box she had brought with her using her staff. The packaging inside rustled, "I'm not sure whose they were. Someone sealed them in these. So I used them."

"In the bubble-wrap?!"

"Well yes. All bubble-wrap has souls trapped inside them. That's why they feel so good to pop." Kiara did not comprehend his surprise for a moment, before realising, "That's not common knowledge?"

"No! What? All of it? Who put souls in there? Why would they-"

"I don't know. I don't suppose it's important. What is important is the demon claimed all these packaged souls and now you're free."

The youngster took a moment more to compose himself and then began to look guilted, "So what will happen to them?"

"Well if you didn't know about the bubble-wrap, I don't see any reason to think the demon does." She picked up a handful and passed it over to the lad, "Pop it. Release them. He can't stop us." She smiled triumphantly at what could only be a theory, "Sooo, are you doing anything tonight?"
