a character in “Masks of the Soul”, originally authored by LunaTwilight, as played by RolePlayGateway

Description

The Star
Image

Image


What Kind of Mask is it?:
False

If False, how many Grace Stone fragments does it contain?:
A single stone fragment hidden within the mask’s center jewel. At first it may look like a flaw in the gem, but at closer inspection the fragment can be seen.

How do you create/transform with the mask?
To summon her mask: “Close your eyes...”
To transform into her other self: “...and make a wish.”


Personality:
The Star holds a tranquil personality that is only rivalled by her optimism and faith in staying strong. This mask takes the owner’s, in this case Blithe’s, inner most spark and brings it back to life. Though she has a strength of her own, The Star is to be used more to strengthen others than to be strength all on its own. Her nurturing tendencies cause her to be more aware of other people and willing to do all she can to help keep them going, whether in a battle or just surviving a rough time; she will literally lend her own strength to protect them.

On the flip side, she is also very protective and a force to be reckoned with to keep someone safe; even if it is herself, she reasons she can’t help anyone if she’s unconscious or worse. Her reaction to others is often light hearted with a pure honesty behind her words, sometimes leaving Blithe cringing in the aftermath for the mask not keeping her mouth shut on things. She does, however, still hold the same interest as Blithe in learning new things and watching others; a valuable asset to later make a profile for people.

The Star’s actions can be a bit... flighty... at times. Calmness of mind doesn’t necessarily mean calmness of body; she takes full advantage of her light weight movements and often will switch her tactics of defence to offense at random intervals, hoping a moving target truly is better than a sitting duck.


Brief Description of Transformed State:
When transformed, Blithe’s hair is lengthened to knee length with the front hair being kept in a familiar short fashion similar to her normal self. The hair color lightens to a sandy blond, gradually turning to shades of white towards the ends. Her previous blue eyes darken to a navy blue shade, their gaze softer but still calm. The Star is more partial towards contrasting dark colors with white; the styling most often a short polished dress with separate unattached sleeves which fit to cover the top of her hands while leaving the fingers free. A mix of modern with a renaissance flare with short ankle cut boots to match. Wings also become visible, floating in place unattached to her body. The tips are a matching navy metal that hold the translucent white ‘feathers’ spread out.

Skills/Abilities when wearing mask:
~*~High jump: Though natural physical abilities may be a bit better, the capability of jumping to and from extreme heights is the most prominent ability increased with a lightweight landing upon objects that a body may normally cause to hard of an impact upon.

~*~ Nurturing: The wearer’s best serene qualities are brought to the surface, such as with Blithe, becoming more nurturing and helpful to others. This quality allows the mask to be useful for giving tranquility towards other more than to itself.

~*~Energy burst: Like being combined with an energizer bunny, the wearer’s energy and livelihood is regenerated to a higher level than it may have previously been beforehand; just without the downfall of any caffeine crashes.

~*~Aim: Obtaining the comfortable familiarity with the Star Mask’s weapons, the wearer’s aim is increased to match that used with the throwing stars.


Image ImageSkills/Abilities of Transformed State:
Star light, Star bright (Minor) – A harmless attack used for a distraction or cheap shot against opponents. A sudden burst of pure white light is released to temporarily stun others who see it; leaving an opening while eyes must adjust after direct exposure to bright light.

First star I see tonight (Minor) – Combined with her staff, energy is stored within the weapon’s wings as both they and the jewel glow. It allows for a more dangerous swing that may release the stored energy as a slash of light or be held within the weapon for more force upon impact. The longer or more often this is used, the more quickly energy is sapped away from the wielder.

Wish I may, Wish I might (Minor) – Somewhat a healing ability, she is capable of sharing her energy with another. This ability must be used with care however as it weakens her own energy to help another. If enough is given, flesh wounds may be slowed as the body is stronger to heal itself.

Have the wish, I wish tonight (Major) – The wings floating behind her are not merely for decoration. They may be used to create an infolding shield around the mask wearer with room for one other person. Capable of withstanding most attacks, it causes great damage to the wings and can only be used once per transformation depending on the amount of damage obtained. This power has a flip side, if choosing to shield a second person the wings can act as an entrapment; keeping things from breaking in or out of their folds. Both have downfalls however. This ability leaves her back exposed, and if used as an entrapment, puts her in extremely close range to the second person.


Weapons they have when they have transformed
A 5’ staff coated in white gold and is created for defence and offense. The tip is topped with a red gem with a starburst cut, beneath this jewel are a set of white wings carved of the same materials as the rest of the weapon, the edges of the feathers are sharpened to a razor point that can be used for a dangerous swing at an opponent. The thin staff handle allows for easy hand movement and grip; as well as proving effective in blocking bladed attacks... just make sure your hands are not in the way. A set of four throwing stars are a minor weapon, used for the intention of small injuries. They are best served to pin objects or long range distractions; but with only four capable of existing at one time, if a fifth is summoned then one used must disappear to take its place. Each star is coated in a multicoloured metal and shaped differently from one another.

So begins...

Throme - Friday, September 27 (4:30 PM)


How fast the clock does turn when there’s nothing important to do.

That is if one was normal. Just a few Fridays in the past, Masked and Itex met each other in a dramatic showdown, not unlike a fight between rival gangs. The thing at stake this time was not territory, but a small nondescript package. What exactly was inside that thin box? No one really knew for sure. Only that it was important.

It would take eight minutes for those on Earth to notice if the sun went out. It would still be warm; it would still be bright. It took longer than eight minutes for the conclusion of this fight to be seen.

Was the package worth it? The Masked were the ones who walked away with the package, and Itex was left there empty-handed, but no one side came out of the proceedings unscathed. A game with a wounded victor. This was the breaking point for the poor stability of a certain Miss Coraline Starlings. A few days after, the harried looking maiden turned in her resignation from the Student Council. This was almost like bowling; the first pin to fall. Liesel Moringmer was murderous.

The Vandergear family was next in line. Chasing some illusory job in nearby Lore, the family burned its own roots in Throme and moved for the sake of greed. It was fortunate for Liesel that her heart possessed a remarkable capacity for wrath. The delicate tea cups were not so lucky. Neither were the flowers.

But this strand of bad luck did not allow Itex to leave without its punishment for failure. A certain female who went by the name of 'En' claimed Oskana Sonnen's blood, time, and responsibility. While she did not disappear per se, Cenriel Academy was without a student when she was transferred to rival Thromain Institute of Fine Arts. But her partner was not spared either. Treia Rawler, with her lucky stars shining from the heavens, remained relatively untouched, with only a warning to show for her troubles. Itex, like Liesel, was not a believer of keeping their murderous intent bottled inside.

The beautiful observatory was without its owner for a week, before she reappeared, looking none the worse for her time. Perhaps there was something hidden under that smile of hers, but nothing was visible to the average eye. The clear nights kept the popularity of that rooftop attraction high.

Friday, August 16th. A day that would mark the transfer of humans from the thrifty Maybelle Avenue to more reputable Sagaro Mall. Many wallets became far lighter due to the ever-growing paranoia. Hector Mason, a man with two daughters who worked nights as a security guard, was seen in a puddle of his own blood. Was there a serial killer hidden in the depths of that brilliant district? The police found no leads or evidence. Despite attempts from shop owners to catch more customers, those that dare enter that shining crime scene were few and far in between.

Judgement did not have anything interesting for the Itex for the longest of time.
Liesel had no leads.

Perhaps they were waiting for today. The day that the package pointed to as important. So what exactly was in that package of Itex? It was with hoping expressions that the Masked had opened the case, to fall downtrodden.

A letter.

To whom it may concern:
After months of research, we may have stumbled upon something of great importance. The previous sample that we have received is an enigma, to say in the slightest. Despite weighing like an average granite shock of the same size, its chemical bonds are completely nonsensical. Instead of forming bonds in order to gain eight valence electrons, many of the carbon atoms possess nine or even one with six. Perhaps you were right in saying that this was a strange rock.

When attempting to find the volume of the sample, we were astonished to find the rock glowing upon contact of water. We were unable to find the source of this energy, but it is believed it is some sort of chemical reaction. Other than the output of light, we have discovered no other abnormalities. Our sample glowed red, bright red, but we shall be asking for further samples to support this hypothesis. It would not surprise me if it was a fluke. If it wouldn't be an issue for your organization, if you'd send us another shard, we would be much obliged. The things we do for science. Until then, we'll be sending back the sample on 9.27. Please do send a messenger to pick it up. This cannot fall into unaligned hands.

Sincerely,


The letter was signed, but illegible and smudged, seemingly on purpose. It appeared as though the writer was unwilling to give up his or her name. The letter continued with an address.

Nivcien Science Institute, Throme
Research Division


It is now September 27. Yet another Friday afternoon. The weather had mellowed in the months, with the leaves already in the process of dying. They were dull brown, many of them withering in the streets and on the trees. A steady wind made its way through Throme. Life is unfair, but yet it brings hope and excitement. Perhaps their adventure will beat reality television's entertainment value on this blustering November afternoon.

Those whose souls belonged to Itex ought to be making their steady way to the back rooms at Brio, where that violent angel of doom, Judgement, was doubtless waiting for them. The Masked had likewise, been summoned by Liesel to deal with their recently collected information. How will both sides dance this afternoon? That is a story to hear.
