Site Spotlight


Congratulations to the newest winners of the site spotlight. These two members have shown through their dedication to the board that one person (in this case two) can forcefully pull a board from decline! Congratulations to Namida and Akaiken for your immeasurable contributions to Niwa. It's people like you who make this place as wonderful as it is.

They said this was a city for our kind, they said it was a safe haven from the rest of the world. This was suppose to be the city where we where safe from regular humans. But, in a city where Meta-Humans run rampant, is there such thing as safety? When taking what you want is as simple as waving your hand, or closing your eyes, how can there be law? In this city, the truth is there is only one source of law, and that are the different criminal organizations that have formed all around us. The only order is that of the darkest part of humanity, of criminal organizations where the strong thrive while the weak gasp for air. This is Niwa Nights.. This is our home.

Can you survive it?

[MIA]Kai Sloan; Skulk
Topic Started: May 18 2012, 11:09 PM (162 Views)
Pleasantly Plump Penguin
Name: Kai Sloan

Gang Affiliation: Skulk

Age: 16

Birth Date: August, 18th

Occupation: Petty theft, he steals low value items and sells them to pawn shops. If he gets his hands on a more valuable item, he might sell it to the black market, or his gang.

Residence: He moves from apartment to apartment, staying for as long as his luck hold up in stealing. If he can't steal enough to live somewhere he wanders the streets, sticking to the shadows, and waiting until he has enough money to afford another apartment.

Physique: The first thing that people notice about him is his pale skin. He would be mistaken for an albino if not for his pitch black hair, and light brown eyes. He wears his hair very short, he tries not to let it grow over his ears. His skin is pale from all the time that he spends in the shadows. He is fairly skinny from not always eating, but he is a fit person. He has developed his body from years of parkour, which he learned from not wanting to get caught by people he is stealing from. He didn't really practice, he just started leaping out of second story windows and running up fences. After quite a few broken bones he started to learn to roll to minimize impact, and other basic parkour skills.

Personality: He is not antisocial, exactly, he has just never found someone that he can talk to for very long without wanting to disappear. He is a smart person, always calculating his odds on everything, whether or not that person likes him, whether or not he can steal that necklace without the owner noticing, whether he is going to get ripped off or not. However even with this calculating nature, he still believes strongly in luck. This has just developed from years of being a thief, after a while you think that someone, or something wants you to get out clean, or get found and your ass beat. He has his own superstitions however, none of the breaking mirror, black cat superstitions that other people hold. He will always lightly tap the ground before he enters a house, he will rub his hands together three times before attempting a pickpocket.

Personal History: His mother died giving birth to him, because his drunk, drug addicted father forced her to give birth in a back alley of Niwa because he didn’t want to pay for the hospital. Growing up with his father was hard, because he would get drunk or high and beat his son senseless. So Kai was taken by his grandfather to protect him, and he showed Kai how to steal to make a living. His grandfather wasn’t that old, only 42 because he had had Kai’s dad when he was young, and Kai’s mother was only 20. So Kai spent most of his time with his grandfather stealing to get by. Over the years he learned that he had a knack for it. He lived with his grandfather until he was about 14, and then his Dad found them. His Dad flew into a rage when he found his son with his father, because he thought his son had died. He beat Kai until he couldn’t move and then attacked his own father. He used a bat to beat his father into submission and then told Kai that he was going to show him what would happen if he ever ran away again. He took out a large knife and cut his own father to pieces in front of his son. As Kai sobbed helpless to do anything he began to feel the shadows around him. He felt them snake around him and cover him like a blanket. Kai wasn’t sure what was happening to him, so he just laid still, not moving and not talking. When his father was finished he turned around only to not see his son anywhere. He flew out the door after his son, who he was sure fled while he was busy. Kai was puzzled as to what had happened, but he didn’t question it, he just embraced his new found ability.

Gifts/Skills/Abilities/Powers: He has the ability to slightly manipulate the shadows around him, in order to hide himself more effectively. And whenever he is in the shadows his eyesight is improved to see in the shadows. There are many limits to this ability, like he cannot drag a shadow across a well lit room to make himself invisible. He has to be in or near the shadows already, and he can just wrap them around him to become invisible. There have to be enough shadows around him to allow him to wrap himself up as well, he cannot use a foot of shadow to make himself invisible in an otherwise bright lit room. However if the room is dim he needs less shadows to cover himself.

Items/Equipment: The only thing that is constantly on his person is a small stiletto switchblade that was given to him by his grandfather. It is 9 inches long and it has a black handle, with a white dot on the button. It is mostly there as a good luck charm, or for intimidation, he wouldn't be able to actually kill anyone with it.

Additional Information:

Introduction RP: Kai gently tapped the open windowsill three times before carefully entering the house. As he crept through the dark house he could feel the constant weight of the shadows around him, covering his entire body like a giant comforter. It was a very satisfying feeling to Kai, because it meant that he was completely invisible at that moment. Anyone who looked in that room wouldn’t even see a shadowy figure, they would simply see an empty room. Now if they flicked on the lights it would seem as though he materialized out of thin air, because he would lose the shadows that covered him up, but in darkness he was invisible. He slowly walked through the house carefully looking for the lockbox that was said to house a large sapphire. As he approached where the lockbox was hidden he noticed a small golden ring with what looked to be a small diamond on it. If the diamond was real, it could be worth some real money. He quickly pocketed the ring and moved onto the lockbox. He found it right where his informant (a servant that was recently fired) said it would be. As he located the lock and began to pick it, he realized that it all seemed a little too easy. Sure he had to scale a three story building, and sneak through a giant maze of a house, but still it seemed slightly too easy. He shrugged off the feeling as the lockbox clicked open and he reached for the egg sized sapphire inside. As he pulled it out he heard a small click and looked down to see that the sapphire was attached to an alarm via a small cord, and he had just set off the alarm. Instantly every light in the house went on killing his shadow advantage. As he sprinted back through the giant house he ran past several guards with pretty hefty looking guns. As he found the window in which he entered, he saw a guard turn the corner with a nasty looking submachine gun, not wanting to die for a gem he decided to throw the gem straight at the guards face. Luckily he did exactly what Kai wanted him to do, which was drop his gun and grab at the gem. Even better, the guard misses the catch and it flew right out the window. Kai quickly soared out the window after the gem, watching it land in the grass before making the landing himself. He quickly grabbed the gem off the ground and sprinted off into the night covered by shadows. Once he got away he wanted to yell to the heavens about his good luck, but he refrained. Good thing too, because he got back to his apartment and took a closer look at the gem, and he realized that the slimy bastard had a fake gem planted, because this one was just a cheap false gemstone. He probably took it out to impress the sluts that he would bring into his stupid mansion. He could easily fool a dumb blonde into sleeping with him with this, but this would never fly in the blackmarket. Kai pushed the gem to the side for the moment and took out the ring he had grabbed. After close inspection he decided that it was probably a real diamond, probably fell off his finger while he was busy with the blonde sluts that he was tricking. Kai picked up the false stone and chucked it out his open window, before dropping into bed and passing out, underneath the weight of his shadows.

Oath I promise to uphold the oath of Niwa, or may all my luck run sour.

Awesome char so far, and damned depressing bit about the childhood. I think he'd do well to fit into the Skulk, so props there.

Now, I only have a few questions about the shadow ability before I pass you on for Ru's approval. For one, I just want to clarify; Kai is capable of using the shadows only to mask himself and cover himself with them, right? Thus giving off the illusion that he is hiding behind the darkness of shadows, correct? Is there anything else that the shadows can be used for?

Also, when the shadows hide him, is he just covered by the shadows, or is he brought within the shadows?

He simple cloaks himself in the shadows, not brought into them. I also decided to take out the part that makes him lighter, he is simply cloaked by them, making him invisible. So essentially all they do is cover him, and make him invisible to anyone looking in a dark room. I was thinking that over time as I developed him he would become better at controlling the shadows to the point where he could cloak someone else as well, is that okay? I wasn't sure if I should put that in his bio right now, because he can't do it as of yet.

That's just fine~ I'll let Ru know about this so she can give the final heads up on the character's involvement with the Skulk.

Once that's done, you're good to go~ I'll keep you posted.
