The Shadow of Intent

"Suavis mortem." Death is sweet.

268 views · last seen in The Inner Infernal Sanctum
a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Shpleem

Description

Human Form:
Race: Demon of the 7th Hell
Full Name: The Shadow of Intent
Social Status: Wealthy upper-class
Occupation: Power broker
Age: Appears to be 32
Height: 6'4"
Build: Medium, average tone.
Hair: Short, black.
Eyes: Red, sometimes glowing.
Distinguishing Marks: A lack of distinguishing marks is distinct in and of itself.
General Information: In his human form Intent appears as a suave man in a black suit with a red tie, his eyes generally hidden behind blood red sunglasses. It is in this form that Intent chooses to conduct much of his dealings with mortal beings, appearing as one of them and offering deals. Trading money and power around between them all as if playing a game with tokens and cards. In the end it doesn't matter to him who is on top, so long as it gets him what he truly wants out of the bargain, what that is he won't say but judging by his view of mortals as pawns in an even larger game it is clear that his desires are best left unknown.
Combat Type: Non combatant in human form, he has minions for that.
Unique Talents, Abilities and Personal Equipment: Despite choosing to take on a vulnerable human form Intent is not without power, still easily capable of killing an unpowered human or other mortal being. However to keep up appearances he will not engage enemies himself while in his human guise, instead relying on his underlings, generally appearing as a pair of human body guards and two accompanying guard dogs. In actuality they are a pair of demons and hell hounds.
Though he does not fight in his human form Intent is not above displays of power, using his menacing aura to intimidate the mortals around him, seeming larger and more powerful in comparison even when his current body is not. He can also influence and manipulate those of weak mind and spirit that do not have the will to resist him, it is this ability that he uses to sway the favor of lesser people to those in power, tipping the political balance in the favor of whomever he chooses.

Demon Form:
In order to restore his demonic form Intent must be able to draw on a supply of unholy energies, as such he cannot do so on consecrated ground. The amount of he possesses as a demon is immense and came be made stronger depending on the amount of energy he absorbs during transformation. The more energy absorbed the more powerful he becomes, at the price of having less control over his power and his mental faculties, becoming bestial and rage filled when saturated with power.
In his base demonic state Intent exhibits super human strength and durability as well as a near invulnerabilty to mortal weapon that insn't bless or enchanted in some way. His powers include advanced telekinises, mental subjugation of lesser minds, a pervailing aura of malice and violence and the ability to manipulate hellish energies in the forms of both fire and shadow into weapons or to attack with them outright. As his power grows during transformation as does his body and he is capable of reaching the size of a giant at the cost of his rational thinking, resulting in a mindless beast until he burns off the excess power.
Family: Unknown
Personality:

So begins...

stood from the booth its host had been sitting in, by appearance it was the same as Lucas, aside from the fact that it was larger and the man's metal mask had become its face. Its yellow eyes scanned the bar, it hunted evil but at the moment was willing to give into vice, it strode over to the counter and sat down. It summoned a shadow to bring it a bottle of wine and actually placed the appropriate amount of cash on the counter.

The Shadow of Intent 's skin was the same metallic silver as the mask its host had worn, and the whine bottle it was holding reflected of its face as it inspected the lable. It decided that the year and brand were acceptable and pulled the top off and drank straight from the bottle, the tendrils of energy on its back writhed and changed shape at random, at times it would appear as if a face appeared within the black energy.

The Shadow of Intent looked around the bar, it's silver face relecting the ambient light at odd angle. It too felt ignored and unwanted, the second feeling was normal and it was used to it, but silver skinned beings of darkness normally drew attention.

The Shadow of Intent smiled, and turned to face Mr. Red, his metallic face revealing his reflection. "He is resting, it is my turn now," his hand was one Lucas's switch blade, but in his hands it was far more.

The Shadow of Intent smiled, seeing Prince Marth out of the corner of his eye. "You want to try your hand Noble?" it asked with a grin. The weapon it tossed was no ordinary switch blade, not that any one but it knew that.

The Shadow of Intent snatched its switch blade from the counter in mid spin and returned it to the pocket of its trench coat. "Greetings Madam, is there something you seek?" it asked, its voice sounded like several people whispering at once. Its metallic skin glinted in the ambient light of the room as the tendrils of dark energy on its back shifted and morphed.

The Shadow of Intent closed its yellow eyes, "I think I can let him run the show for a while." it answered. A moment latter it slumped forward, the tedrils on its back disappeared and its body became slightly smaller and slimmer. Its skin returned to a normal caucasian shade, and its face returned to a mask when it sat up again it was Lucas Granheim, not Intent.

The Shadow of Intent sat with his head down at the counter and his hood over his head. He was muttering seemingly to himself, "No, I won't let you out," he said quietly. 'Let me out,' whispered Intent within his head.

The Shadow of Intent took control of the body Lucas Granheim. Its host undergoing a visible transformation as it did so, becoming taller and more muscular, his eyes changing from brown to yellow. The mask Lucas was wearing fused to its face, its body taking on the same metallic sheen, as black tendrils of energy appeared along its back and arms. "Not anymore," it answered, its voice sounding like many people whispering at once.
