"Wanna bet?"Pride«««IDENTITY»»»Full Name:
Mary, Cleo, Elizabeth, DianaAge:
around 6000 years oldRace:
Self/Evil«««PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION»»»Hair Color:
a large tattoo on her stomach«««SKILL SET»»»Powers:
Prideful mind: These abilities focus on her mind and how it interacts with her body. While magical in origin they are now permanent factors of her existence.Skills:
Instant learning: Pride can learn any skill, reproduce the action and the result. This is most useful for mirroring things, as she still has to figure out when she can use it. But she can do this all after watching it once!
Absolute control: This is basically just a fancy way of saying that Pride has incredibly good hand eye coordination. She doesn't slip while running, if a ball is thrown right she always gets a home run and has good situational awareness.
Prideful soul and body: Her body is metahuman like thanks to magical infusions and encounters in the past.
Super strength: She can lift a ton, allowing her to jump over small buildings, break stone and walls, stuff like that.
Healing: any blemish, any blight and any pain will eventually be erased with time and she will be. Key word here is 'eventually' She renews her body every hour on the hour over the course of 20 seconds.
Prideful attitude: Prides mystical origin has left her with certain abilities that match with her namesake sin.
Persuasion: Keeping such a sure attitude makes her awfully persuasive when asking and demanding. It's not at the level of mind control, but when people aren't thinking about disobeying her she can usually cause them to fall in line with her requests. Once one listens to one demand, they chain together easier. She can also suggest memories. Small lies like 'we've met before' and 'we were friends before' or even 'remember, I unloaded the gun earlier' become fact as long as no one thinks too hard about it. It's usually a passive ability, unless she decides to turn it off.
Luck: She is lucky. When combined with her absolute control this means mistakes generally don't happen for her. Her luck doesn't affect others, so if someone plans enough this power doesn't matter at all. She needs odds to shift towards herself, if you eliminate other possibilities she has nothing to affect. This power also isn't conscious.
Any and everything imaginable falls into pride's abilities. She has a permanent case of beginner's luck and is highly skilled in many weapons and fighting styles.Physical Weaknesses:
Nth metal touching her can remove her powers for as long as they are in contact with her
Holy items and depictions of holy figures: these can keep her at bay and negate her powers if placed on her. She also cannot manipulate them with her hands.
Core: a sparkling diamond that embodies her, much harder than any true diamond. It embodies herself and when people have it in her possession they can control her actions to a large degree. It's usually worn around her neck. If her body is ever completely destroyed she reforms around this, with it where her heart is.Mental Weaknesses:
Shame: if someone is clever enough and skilled enough, forcing her to be ashamed disables all her powers and can even kill her.
Memories: anyone who REALLY questions her lies can get out of her persuasion, though this USUALLY requires an accomplice, but anything that makes someone think of a specific memory can also disprove her.Equipment:
10 magical throwing knives: These are imbued with magic and return to her once the tenth knife lands. They come flying back as the crow flies and can make their way through most substances while doing so. When initially thrown they can't embed themselves in steel, but not much more.
10 magical darts: These also are imbued with magic. They all can return to her after being thrown, but they also can make snare lines between them. Any thrown can instantly connect to another, given that there is nothing in between them. It is also magical, of course, and can't be broken through normal means«««CEREBRAL PROFILE»»»Personality:
Prideful...what were you expecting? Okay, fine. She thinks of herself as perfect and does her best to act that way, which is pretty odd for someone who represents the embodiment of a sin. She is brave and can be giving with surprising consistency. She does this because of her pride, rather than in spite of it. She has standards. She doesn't cheat. She doesn't need to. On the other hand, her pride knows no bounds. She demands respect and doesn't bother to ask the opinions of others. She is pretty possessive when it comes to her friends and she desperately strains herself to be someone that they look to as a figure of power and authority...and hopefully their best friend.
Inferiority complexes are common place for her, though they usually don't stick around for long since they are almost always disproven. She can't stand being second guessed unless she's pretty sure the sole purpose of the doubt is to bother her. That exception was inevitable after her first few decades of dealing with sarcasm.
She also tends to love competition, of course. Contests draw her like a moth to a flame. But that isn't the only thing that does so. She also absolutely loves quality food, not to mention being given gifts. Giving her gifts or praise is an easy way to get on her good side or set yourself up for a betrayal she'll never see coming. She doesn't question those that look up to her. Of course they like her, she's the best! This can bring on a lot of confusion....followed by a lot of wrath. Be sure that betraying her isn't something to do lightly.Strengths:
All around completely perfect!Interests/Habits:
Being absolutely perfect
contests of all kinds«««PERSONAL BACKGROUND»»»Family Members:

The Tower of BabelHistory:
As the tower of Babel rose, as did pride. She wasn't in her human form yet though. She was in the foundation. She was in the bricks. She was in the mud cementing the bricks together. When it was given up on, all that pride, sum of human kind's greatest accomplishment was freed and took form as Pride, an incredibly angry pride. She had just experienced her first death and disrespect in one fell swoop. She cursed the heavens and cursed hell for not doing enough about it. Soon she was made content though, as the city still existed and she had many distractions. she learned the languages of many nations...until they all began to leave. Then her true pain came to be, as the city slowly died and collapsed and she was left alone. It was a fate one only sees in nightmares. She, Pride, was left without anyone to impress.
After the city died, she stayed there for a millenia, simmering in shame, slowly dying. She refused to accept this at first but was, eventually, forced to leave in search of better things. She made her living in egypt for quite a while, revered as a god or a priest in most cities. This caused a lot of problems for her, the Pharaohs of Egypt weren't keen on sharing their sovereignty. Soon she moved on to Greece, the gods of Greece were much more involved though, making her stay much more troubled, at the same time the people of Greece were much more gullible thanks to how superstitious they were. She was able to pos as aphrodite, artemis, and several other female gods during her time there, and was able to do the same in Rome...then christianity came. That complicated things. There were no gods to pose as, no women were permitted to be priests. The only thing she could have done was pose as a nun....that wasn't an option for several
She moved east. She couldn't quite be a god there, but could build a place for herself as a noble and so she did. For the next few hundred years she stayed in the east and built her empire in China, honing her skills, even staying in a monastery for a short while. Then the discovery of the new world happened and she, wanting to be one of the first there, found herself sailing across the sea....a very uncomfortable ride. Sample rp:
