What was once a defensive construct left behind by the fallen empire of Netheril rose to intelligence and now dedicates itself to the defense of Mankind in Nethril's name.

Description

Given Title: Jinhai

Race: Ascended hairworm, satellite being.

Age: Not applicable

Gender: Asexual, appears male

Eye color: Not applicable

Overbeing/Faction: Myrkul's Vein

Image

Birthplace: Outer storm within Darkavien's construct.

Religion: Apatheist

Identifying characteristics: Unable to imitate a human face, otherwise identical to others of its size when a worm.

Physical Condition: Excellent but suffering from overexposure to sun and minor nutritional deficit.

Languages: Common, English, Draconic

Current residence: Iterant

Occupation: Discoverer

Personality: Jinhai can be curt but it isn't out of malice. Generally a slow thoughtful sort Jinhai is prone to bouts of self-consideration and is impossible to offend. Though Jinhai appears male it has no sexual needs but for a deep appreciation of beauty. As long as there is something to learn from a being Jinhai has a rather flexible morality and will follow anyone that will let it. While following someone it cares to learn from it generally prefers to remain in its humanoid form except when eating. Jinhai has little inherent appreciation for social constructs between individuals even its friends but isn't malicious. The notion of a giant segmented worm chewing rocks at a table causing fear isn't something it generally concerns itself with. Its lack of social learning mostly evinces in an inability to understand itself as a stranger to others or the concept of personal space and territory. Jinhai's flexible morality often means it has no scruples against prioritizing the life of a title of interest over unknown life whether sapient or otherwise. It will use its loci to kill lesser creatures so one of interest stays alive without much hesitation.

Background:Myrkul's vein created Jinhai as a being in its own accord to come and go as it pleases. This frequently leaves Jinhai moving through the planar network called the Underworks sourced from the construct plane in which its race was born. It is interested in learning all there is to learn to further the intellect of its overbeing

If attacked, even if a gross violation of social niceties make it Jinhai's fault, its predatory talents can emerge in defense. If defending itself to a lethal degree Jinhai rapidly loses its placid peacefulness in favor of a sociopathic bent unless outside forces it respects as well written ask it to stop and ponder. In either case Jinhai is unlikely to express remorse but if not threatened will at least express a distaste for what occurred.

Equipment: Though Jinhai frequently looks like it carries a backpack that is only to accommodate extra mass it is not investing into the humanoid form. Jinhai carries little with him but has various crystals and tools floating in its mass. This is used for his channeling of magical energies as an ascendant hairworm. Jinhai has taken to carrying metal projectile weapons inside its chest mass for deterring or killing unsuspecting targets and they are often seen bobbing to the surface.

Limitations: The nature of what composes Jinhai makes sight problematic. Jinhai cannot see very far though it can read quite well. Some larger details such as color, texture, or writing are sometimes lost on Jinhai if not close enough. Its name is kept as a distinct part of its being as the only real natural "organ" on the inside of its mass. If this worm is disrupted it will take time to reform and Jinhai will have difficulty recalling or forming memories. As the worm is frequently on the move it is difficult to target specifically without some way of tracking the creature.

Its 'Eyes' have a similar behavior but while in humanoid form they are not necessarily all under the hood it generally shapes to contain its non-face. Wherever Jinhai puts a eye-bump is where it looks from whether on the palm of a hand or the back of the neck. It cannot usefully see from an arbitrary surface on its body though the eyes can be easily reconstituted if dispersed.

Powers:
  1. Loci Crystals - Some of his loci crystals are for the carving into hard asteroids, many for manufacturing homes for groups of satellite hairworms, and others for defeating threats local to its homeworld. Using these tools Jinhai is capable of transmuting comparatively vast quantities of living creatures or small amounts of mass into positive energy. Other darker arrangements destroy matter to channel negative energy though it causes signifigant strain to Jinhai in channelling disintegration rays. This is both to defend Myrkul's Vein from interlopers as much as to keep its targets of interest alive.
  2. Discrete Levitator - The microscopic creatures composing Jinhai are only bound to gravity when in humanoid form and can disconnect from the main mass for a short while. As a worm it careens easily through mid-air without apparent lift. It can carry a passenger though past unless very small will not be able to maintain much altitude. It can dispatch smaller copies of itself to deal with necessary tasks which have similar if more limited properties. The lack of true tissues inside of a hairworm make sharp objects without signifigant force behind them impractical to cause any real damage.
  3. All-consuming - Though a true omnivore its humanoid form isn't distinct or solid enough to engage in lithovore behavior. If the 15' long 2' wide hairworm is presented with a weapon held still too long the metal object is more likely get bit in half and chewed into dust than batted away. The worm can otherwise dessicate small creatures into carbon dust in but a few seconds.
  4. Manifester - While it can use positive energy to manifest objects and weapons out of nothing such objects degrade spontaneously into piles of ectoplasm after a short time. What composes Jinhai can use these abilities in aggregate to shape actual material but Jinhai has to actually know how to make the object in question and have the right material rather than just know how it should work.

So begins...

Drawn by words that beget shining Ids a squat humanoid appears from an alley. In this new world's so many unknowns those that reflected the words of others were familiar. Overshadowed by a backpack more than its own size its wearer waddles closer. A humanoid clad in ruffling all-black clothes it looks crushed rather than short. Strange proportions and too wide for its height. The face below its hood resembles a human shape but the rough matte black surface that wavers like sandy dunes. Though a few feet away it squints to see light with which to identify the titles in whole. Other than compressed clothes that flap in nonexistent wind it says nothing at first. A direct if simple creature it readies in order the questions written since it arrived.

"Why has the underworks stopped? I cannot return to Myrkul's Vein.", it said to both unaware of its interruption.

Its hollow voice while placid lays under thick sandy noise. Intent listening for an answer it bent its head at the center not the neck. Such things unlikely for those with bones inside. The listening creature slowly gained height as it stood there, backpack shrinking, which leave the boneless mass soon apparent.

Carnaelgaar nearly reacted badly when Koishi poked her forehead only to watch it shudder as if something was there. He calmed himself down immediately."Calm yourself Carnaelgaar, she is just native to this planet. No need to do something that will be foolish." He calmly thought to himself.

The unsettling event was short lived for Carnaelgaar however as a mysterious figure appeared on the scene. The figure oon began to ask a strange question he had no answer for. "Apologies, but I have no idea of what you speak of. You must have the wrong people." He answered, quite aware that this figure was unusual.

Jinhai looked around not getting the response it had expected. Its head swiveled backward to glance from where it came hood and all. Had it gotten to the place it expected to go? The head continued the same way around to point frontward again.

There where new questions written on the top of its list now that everything changed. Its flat tone as one reading them off without care. The speed spoken belies some excitement, "Am I not atop the foundation of the last emperor? I have found a way out? Away from the last emperor all titles are unknowing so aren't all titles equal in chance to write an answer?"

Its proportions stop increasing at a little over five foot. Jinhai angles its now less oval head to think out loud, "Perhaps you will know the answer later. I can ask you then. Chapters of war adorn your tools. They will write order into the chaos of the unknown so I am safe to read it your wake."

It lists at the hip toward Koishi as if just noticing her, "Another title? I wonder if you too have new things we could know?"

Looked up a bit confused. There was another person? He was talking to Carnaelgaar in a sort of familiar way, maybe they knew each other? Her third eye by her chest floated from the cords, moving slightly.

"Who is this?" She asked as she tilted her head to Carnaelgaar, reaching to tug any cloth he may have in order to get his attention. "He's kinda spooky...!"

"Unfortunately I have no answers to your questions, I only know one Emperor of the Imperium Of Man. I am new to this part of the universe, so I cannot answer most of your questions." Carnaelgaar replied. The figures words however had an interesting meaning, Chapters of war adorn his tools. They will write order into the chaos of the unknown. It was as if he knew what he has faced before, or at the very least understood why he fights.

His thought were interrupted when he felt something tugging on him, Carnaelgaar looked down to see Koishi asking him if he knew who he was. "I do not know who he is, however i do sense he is more than he appears." He replied.

Jinhai makes a sound like wind whistling through dunes its cowl shaking.

Its head nods sharp at Carnaelgaar, "New order is not always convenient. I think you are a title that has many answers to questions I haven't asked yet."

A reflective bump appeared on Jinhai's outstretched hand that swirled in place. The literal spiral eye darting to and fro to details there. Jinhai pointed it at some of the markings on the massive armor.

Jinhai's voice goes soft if still grated, "Myrkul's vein ate dying chaos whispering order. In deep chaos a title for itself in an emperor of man but found his title ended before the world began. Myrkul's vein mourns the foundation stone of a faceless emperor of man. Are you also written in an emperor's image?"

Koishi moved now to hide behind Carnaelgaar, more trusting of him than this...spooky man! Her eyes narrowed, trying to discern whether he was a threat or not. He didn't look that bad...though looks were deceiving! All of this talk was very confusing to her however...it was like it was another culture entirely! Oh wait, it was. Still, she hid behind the larger man...staring intently.

"You are correct, I do indeed possess many answers to questions unasked. You are correct to assume I have a title where I come from." Carnaelgaar spoke a he watched a strange eye looking at the markings on his armor.

"I am indeed written from an emperors image, but not just me. Many like me have been created in our emperors image. He also created some people long before I existed. He created children, children in his own image to rule a world he created. But before his world was perfect, chaos struck and those children attacked each other. It was a horrid time we wish to never happen again. Of course, there are others like me who are on this planet. A fellow brother fighting for something while I am here to find something. So who are you by chance? Are you one who has followed an emperor? Or are you one who seeks something?" Carnaelgaar spoke as he took notice of Koishi hiding behind him and he instinctively put his hand by her side to give her some comfort.

Several aircraft, appearing like hawks of gold and red and originating from the business district, flew over the whole of the city. They were fast and agile, and scanned the ground for any targets that would be deemed a threat. Their passing made a sound like blades cutting through wind.
Several larger vessels came then, each one appearing rather like a flying whale, and all of which now erupted with a voice over loud speakers. "Evacuate the area now if you are able, otherwise remain your homes and await instruction. This area is soon to become a battlefield, and you need not lose your life to our war." The voice repeated over and over as it flew over the whole of wing city, warning all those found therein.

In addition, column upon column of troops wearing golden armor marched through the city, breaking into buildings and demanding the inhabitants evacuate the area, escorting them by force where necessary. The head of each of these columns were lead by troops wearing heavy plated armor carrying massive axes and hammer. More lightly armored warriors carrying what appeared as enchanted bows, scaled to the rooftops of buildings and began setting up sniper nests.

Meanwhile, in higher orbit, the energy for the weapons of the nine ships had grown enough that it could be seen on the surface of the planet. What appeared to be nine bright stars had collected above the atmosphere, and energy continued to grow as the ships prepared to fire their weapons.

Jinhai's hand bearing a swirl-eye goes about looking at things while jinhai speaks, "Myrkul's Vein forbids fights among the written. I am written with the title of Jinhai. Was allowing wars among your emperor's titles an oversight? Among the black titles are too tenuous and many are unwritten so the cloud survives. What title has your emperor given you?"

It paused as double-ended hard-skinned worms pour from the surface of shrinking 'leather' backpack. A foot long with fourfold symmetry they stop and float with gravity little consideration. The worms busy themselves with scrubbing dirt from the ground eating into weaker rocks. They pour back into its feet then back out again. Jinhai's feet and torso gain a sheen with the surface tasked to build bits of armor from the harvest silica. As worms forage further afield they turn bits of grass and greenery to dust.

Jinhai continues unabated, "We found our last emperor in a foundation stone. Too long unwritten to have a title, face, or to follow. Myrkul's Vein sends me seeking knowledge and a living worthy emperor to take from them a title. Without one it can only remember its past and goal in us. Titles like yours or ones created like Jinhai are too small to will through its altar. So we mourn and wander."

Jinhai's torso lowered down quick paled legs to the knees as if an elevator dropping one floor. There it asks the small title hid behind a leg,"Can you move through space, unknown title? You hide instead."

Seemingly drawn to the infinite cruel chaos a figure clad in yellow robes with frayed at the edges, he wore a mask of pure screaming silver, each face remiscent of the pain and pure suffering he caused with utter malice. He was known by many names, but his true name would echo malevonent shivers over the very foundations of Terra. Unlike the insects above, he cared little for these games. The pieces up above were pawns, useless until they became more. Right now it was merely pleasure. The mask had a crown of strange origins, and when he spoke it caused shivered in the soul, "Fools, predictable, easily led. Now they truly believe they are somehow comporable. In an instance they could be made unexist. And little they could do. In an instance, but I am not playing those games." he chuckled and conjured a throne which rose up to a nearby building so he could watch, "Pawns pretending to be Queens, ambition that has no actual merit. It is merely a circus, carnivale of folly."

"Queens...Kings...Pawns. What does it truly matter Hastor? In the end, All bow to the Black Queen"

Said a very familiar voice as a small child materialized next to Hastor with a small sigh on her face. This form that Alisah had chosen was a small girl, no older then six years with a beautiful sunday dress of midnight black which flowed in the wind of this planet. Her hands were covered with long elbow length gloves and a bonnet of midnight blue that sat upon the top of her head. This form that the monster wore just looked down at the ground at the encroaching army of hapless wits with a look of either pity, contempt or just plain annoyance. Those eyes which looked like a Black Hole itself took in the sight below. It was the kind of look that a mother would give at her misbehaving children when they broke a lamp while playing ball in the house

"I pity them. I had envisioned Humanity to have so much more potential. Yet here they are, about to destroy eachother in some some mad grab for power and glory. Truly this cycle has gone on for far too long. Its all gone to shit and now once this cycle has ended, there is going to have to be a major clean up to reset everything right. What a mess Leolik has made and soon I will have to confront him about this personally"

Alisah let out a heavy sigh and laid down on her stomach and kicked her small legs back and forth in the air, kicking the sunday dress up to her knees and rested her head on her arms.

"And now we watch the collapse of this army once more, time and time again people fail to understand the works that weave this city's fate. What will happen now I wonder. Will the army be smashed, blown to bits, or just paraded through the streets on pikes and spears with entrails falling to the pavement? Where is Evangela when you need her eh?"

She asked, now finally addressing Hastur with her gaze

"I thank you by the way. Letting me out of that prison was a good gesture. You will get to live for a few more cycles"

Her attention turned down towards the army and, from her hands, materialized two bags of popcorn and held one out towards Hastor "Here, for the show. I will give this cycle credit for one thing: It does produce some rather marvelous entertainment"

The harrowed darkness nodded his expression hidden behind the mask, well in reality the being had no true face. Not in the sense mankind could understand or even comprehend, "It matters for the games, good pieces in the game provide enjoyment. Bad pieces like those above pretend to be interesting but once you remove that veneer you see otherwise. I was hoping these pieces could be at least intriguing. Alas they are not."

Pausing he regarded the invasion fleet, sat on his throne while Alisah had her own seat. His throne was ornate and of course ostentatious, with pure gold carved with intricate pictrographs. It was utterly opulent and of course it suited him, "Remember dear, while I understand cycle must end. I rather enjoy this cycle and wish for it to continue, if only the pieces are becoming so interesting. I give not a fig things must be resolved." as he spoke it was evident from his tone he was smirking.

Nonetheless his eyes turned to the sky again, "Of course, wars while entertaining are not as interesting blood orgies or turning parties into bloodbaths. At least in those I can watch my worshippers be consumed by their decadence ending up parodies of utter reality. It's theatrical and appeals to me."

Hearing the remark he replied, "I need interesting pieces, I merely did what was necessary. But remember dear Leng is not part of your cycle nor is the Dreamland. Your pretensions of ever threatening are hilarious, but I can take good comedy. I am not bitter." he chuckled a dark cruel sound that wafted in the air, "You know one of the strangest ends to civilization I saw was a case where a species of aliens that was essentially furballs buried a civilization. It was hilarious, because they are what mortals call cute, but they overrun the whole planet and never stop eating or multiplying." his pallid hands raised as in his hands appeared a furball, "Now what were they called?" as he tried to remember the tribble could not multiply while held in his orb, but it made beautiful cooing sounds, calming even, "Ah yes Tribbles."

Alisah listened to his words and nodded a few bits with each of the words he spoke. She then went back to watching the fighting down below. But at the sound of the cooing, her head moved up as if on a swivel and looked at the small ball of fur in the orb and she just began to grin very very slowly "Oh...my......lord....." She said and stood up and took the Tribble out of the orb and held it tightly to her chest

"I FORGOT I MADE THIS!!!" She exclaimed and snuggled into the Tribble and pet it happily "This...this will be the ultimate joke" Alisah then looked at Hastur and fed the Tribble some popcorn and levitated it into the air and caused the Tribble to mulitply one hundred fold. A blanket of fur now covered the sky as she altered them in the Darkness of the shell. This would be a very good show now as she dropped the Tribbles down onto the streets of Wing City near this army and began to laugh "And now the game begins!"

These Tribbles would rain down on the streets of Wing City near the army. It would be the strangest sight to see as the ground became a very small carpet of tribbles. Upon their landing, they would start to move towards the Legion and make cute cooing noises at them.

Off in the bar nearby a dutiful new worker goes table to table taking dirty glasses. Each cleaned with a spare hand stuck inside the leftover beer there never soils somehow. The rest of the worker's outfit is thick leather robe all matte black but for a pink frilly apron in front. A gas mask pokes out underneath a cowl looming above the apron to obscure the face. Under that mask hangs an apron neck loop so loose it's not clear how the apron stays in place but it rather stands out.

Neither is clear exactly how serious the apron text with Jinhai passing unhindered. The shop's insignia above plain black letters,"Fixes things for free. Cleans. Eats thugs. Beware. ~The Management"

The silent figure sits at a table with no shift of heavy clothes across from some mean looking bruisers. They pay no mind but to push a pile of shattered glass and rusty knives across its way. Jinhai sets to returning order to the chaotic pile by pressing glass pieces together. There's faint glow of energy at the crack and now a new seamless whole awaits another puzzle piece.

Koishi once more reappeared in a completely different location, completely different from Wing City! She twirled about after appearing again, giggling.

"Hmmmmgh~ Once more, Koishi has found a place to be! And no spooky things are happening here, so even better!" She grumbled to herself however, looking down. "Hopefully the big guy in the big armor can find Koishi again...! She did like talking to him..."

Carnaelgaar was in his ship in one second, he was trying to help his fellow battle brothers siege the space station. However his ship would pass through some sort of gate which caused him to vanish. The next second he found himself in an unknown place which was strange. As he looked around he noticed Koishi and was surprised, how did they appear in the same place? Whatever was going on he had no means to return to the fight. "Greetings again Koishi, its surprising for us to meet again after such circumstances." He greeted as he walked over to her.

Around the corner a familiar faceless hood stuck its head and a small silver tray follows at waist level. Jinhai picks up the pace with soft and even steps holding a silver tray full of colored cubes. The one thing rather different is the frilly pink apron that seemed glued to its front. Its non-use of the flopping neck loop quite clear.

During Carnaelgaar's greeting Jinhai sauntered up nearby aiming to stop behind Koishi. At closer view many of the cubes on its tray were missing here and there. Currency was flotsam bobbing in false solidity among exposed parts of its leather robe.

Close to Jinhai the smell of various fudge flavors is as clear as the odd pirate insignia and label on its apron. The warning in neat typeset reads: 'Fixes things for free. Cleans. Eats thugs. Beware. ~The Management'

"I kept looking after the small title for when you both reach calm. It is well now?", comes Jinhai's dusty voice.

Koishi nodded with a big grin on her face. She had just said she wanted to see him again...and here he was! It must be fate, or maybe something else...

"Oh! Hiya hiya! Koishi thought you disappeared forever..." Her eyes were drawn to the dusty and...really horrible voice as she turned once more to look in Jinhai's direction. "!! Spooky man, why do you follow Koishi?!"

Jinhai releases the tray but the side buried in its coat appears to hold it up. It takes a small fragrant mint fudge cube from its tray then offers it with blunt opinion, "You are interesting, small title. I only left for safer places. I wish to learn and I brought candy for you and the larger title of an emperor of man. Title of Bartender wrote for me the knowledge to make food squares. I carefully counted all the sugar rocks for it."

"It is indeed strange how we managed to get here, even I do not know how I left my ship. However I feel like a part of me is missing but regardless it is nice to you you both again." Carnaelgaar spoke as he turned to face Jinhai. "So you seek to learn? If that is what you want then I can tell you many ancient stories, how some of our things work, and some knowledge back home." He offered to tell Jinhai.

Koishi nodded and smiled to him, then looking to spooky man. He wanted knowledge...? That was what Carn said at least. She thought for a moment and nodded.

"Koishi knows things! Things about magic...and satori! That's not where her knowledge ends, but it's the start of it at least~" She nodded, and twirled in place before stopping once she started feeling dizzy.

The fudge cube returns to the tray for a moment so Jinhai can hold it up. Then it pulls its hands away from the tray or more accurate to say his forearms only. The hands liquefy to the wrist then shape into two small double-ended worms of shined hard plate. Curved mouth-vanes careful not to scratch the chrome hold the tray of fudge cubes still in midair. Jinhai instead sprouts new hands from his sleeves as the stumps approach to clap.

The sound one Jinhai clapping proves much like whapping cotton mittens.

The clapping stops so Jinhai can speak in subdued dusty excitement, "Yes. I think I would like stories from the titles under a living emperor of man."

It looks to Koishi, "You know stories of magic as well? I am pleased. What is the title of Saitori do? Myrkul's vein writes the title of Jinhai to imbue order or take it away."

Jinhai grabs a green mint cube off the tray as grey etched crystals flotsam to the surface of its arm. They flow down to the hand then take position as Jinhai whispers a new pattern. The small fudge cube wriggles into a sphere to take on new shine and solidity. Veins raise out of the surface as Jinhai offers Koishi a mint-flavored chocolate eyeball.

"The bartender said living titles like candy. Are you sure you do not want the dessert food?", Jinhai asked Koishi with torqued cowl.

"So how shall I begin my story? Shall I start from the very beginning? Or should I talk about the tales the Emperor himself did? Perhaps I should talk about some recent stroies?" Carnaelgaar pondered to himself as he wondered what story to tell. There was the very beginning when the Emperor was first born from a special means, or to the time of the tyrannic wars when a enemy they face arrived and had nearly destroyed some of his brothers in arms.
