Description

Vergil




❝...❞



Image



❝The Basics❞



Image
| Full name |Vergil Verona

| Gender |Dude

| Age |16

| Mage Type |Sound

| Rank |M






Image
| Eye Color |Blue


| Hair Color |Gold


| Height | 5'11


| Weight | 165lbs


| Physical Description |
Vergil is slightly taller than average and has a pretty typical build. He tends to wear a stylish black suit with a white undershirt, but he has been known to wear jeans and a t shirt on occasion. No matter what he's wearing he has an impeccable sense of style that makes the women swoon. Underneath the clothes he is fitter than he appears, his muscles are toned and well defined. He doesn't smile often but when he does it is powerful, it is a smile that women would kill to see.

| Other important info | Vergil is a mute, he communicates with sign language and text to speech software on his phone




| Powers |
-Main Power Area: Guitar Magic
† By infusing the music played on his guitar with his sound magic the songs have different effects.

† Power Chord: By manipulating various factors about how he plays, he can alter a songs effect. This requires more concentration and magical energy and as such after activating a power chord effect Vergil must return to playing the passive versions of his songs or risk collapsing. (twenty minute cool down)

† Song of Valor: The song of Valor increases the offensive strength of Allied magic, making his allies attacks more potent and dangerous, the longer he plays the song the stronger the effect.
Power Chord: By adjusting the octave and volume the Song of Valor can also be played in such a way that it fires two concentrated burst of sound waves at an enemy, this loses the ability to buff allies, but instead deals a fair amount of damage.

† Song of Lind: Creates a strong shield of compressed sound waves in a ten foot radius around himself that absorb and reflect enemy attacks.
Power Chord: Plays the same song faster and more upbeat, this allows Virgil to put up smaller shields quickly around himself and allies, these shields are weaker and break after two or three attacks, but Virgil can put them up at a faster pace. (Unlike the other Power Chords, Vergil can play this one like his passive songs)

† Song of Sundhed: Vergil plays a soothing song that heals the minor injuries of nearby allies.
Power Chord: Vergil overcharges his guitar with magic while playing the song of Sundhed, greatly increasing the vitality of nearby allies.


- Special Move:

† Song of the Siren: Vergil plays a beautiful and enticing song that attracts others to his location. Further it distracts them from everything at hand causing them to focus only on the song. All but the most mentally resilient women are totally enchanted by the music, however the song elicits strange behavior out of men. Some men are intrigued by the song and although they are attracted to it it doesn't enchant them like women and they find it easier to shake off. Most men however are filled with jealous rage, the rage is all consuming and they can't think of anything but making the music stop. Unfortunately for them, instead of luring them towards Vergil (like it does with women) the song distracts them and they cannot find the source, becoming more and more enraged attacking any other men they find during their search.

-Secondary Area:

† Earth Magic

†Vergil uses earth magic to make a stage to play on. The stage comes equipped with speakers and amps allowing for a full fledged performance. This is literally the only thing Vergil can do with Earth magic, he has not studied any other facets of the magical art, and sees no need to.

| Personality |
Vergil is first and foremost a musician, he is almost always working on a song of some kind and carries his guitar everywhere. He spends the majority of his time at school flirting with the girls around campus or cutting class to work on his songs. He is a frequent flier in detention due to his constant prank pulling.


❝Who I Am❞



[left]

| History |
Vergil's parents were both hard working middle class people without any magical talent. When he was five his parents bought him his first guitar and lessons. He found he had a knack for it and poured himself into the music. By the time he was thirteen he was known around the local coffee shops as something of a prodigy, although they were probably exaggerating his talents, he was remarkably gifted for someone his age. One night while his parents were working late he was working on a new song and suffering from some serious writers block he sees some movement out of the corner of his eye. Confused he gets up and walks to his closet, the last place he saw the movement. At first glance he couldn't see anything so he ignored it and went back to his song. Before he could pick up his guitar he heard the most beautiful singing, coming from his closet. When he got to the closet he saw the most adorable little creature. She introduced herself as Melody and explained that she was his for lack of a better word, demon. She then explained that he had the gift to practice magic and she as to be his companion. She showed him the basics and he practiced finding it easier when he learned he pair his music with his music. Vergil is now in his second year at Henry Jefferson and is rather well known among the general student populace, especially the ladies, due to his pranks, good looks, aloof attitude and musical prowess.

Ceil Liadon


Ceil was quite in shock the standard introduction to the class as interrupted not by questions the teacher had asked for those but by a tall boy who walked up taking the teachers shirt by the collar. Then challenged him to a duel not only a duel but to the death. Ceil was expecting the teacher to refuse as the boy was storming out, but he accepted telling all the students to follow. Ceil followed behind the rest of the students Briar sitting atop his head as they walked out at a brisk pace. Upon reaching the clearing Bryce told the students to stay at the edge and watch so Ceil jumped up into a tree to get a better view.

The fight if you could call it that didn't last long. Cathal charged with ice blades hitting Bryce's scythe. Suddenly a lightning bolt crashed down knocking Cathal back Bryce charged but Cathal slid away with a quick burst of magic the Bryce ripped open a whirlwind disappearing for what would be the killing blow. Before he could land it something crashed down throwing Bryce into a tree across the clearing yelling at him before telling the students go go back to their classroom. Not wanting to anger the woman who just face kicked their teacher into a tree he jumped down with Briar quickly walking his way back to the classroom waiting for the teacher or anyone else who would tell them it's ok to leave.

Bryce Zypher


Closing in to end this duel Bryce was readying his scythe for the final blow when something appeared in front of him for all he could tell kicking him out of the whirlwind through a tree. Bryce we stunned there was no way Cathal could have gotten a kick like that off from the position he was in. As he unburried himself from the tree a voice spoke to him. "We're home sir. Nice to see you again." Pushing the trunk of the tree off of his chest he managed to cough a reply. "Oh OZ nice to hear you too I take it Lilly was the one who sent me through the tree then." Taking a deep breath Bryce flooded his lungs so he could breath regularly again. "Nice to have you home any chance you know anything about where she was this time?" Looking around Bryce saw the students were already gone headed back to the classroom if he'd heard Lilly right through the sound of a tree falling on him.

Bryce started to walk doubling over in pain at the first step. "Ribs, I think my right arm, and definitely my nose. Well Lilly's certainly not lost out on any of her abilities. He groaned deciding to head to the nurse to let her patch him up. Her healing magic was finally stronger than his. "Ikari will you go to the classroom and tell the kids we're done for the day if they have any questions tell them to find me tomorrow I'll be in our office." "I'd rather stay with you Bryce it's been a long time since you've been beat up like this." Bryce nodded. "I know but I've lived through worse. Please go take care of the students." She nodded gruffly running off to the classroom.

Bryce began limping to the school casting an illusion spell so he appeared to be walking normally without the growing amount of blood. 'I'm going to have to talk to Lilly about this no doubt she plans on killing me next time she sees me.' It took 30 minutes or so for him to gimp his way up to the nurse. She saw through his illusion instantly. "What the hell happened to you!? I haven't seen you like this since your 3rd mission. I told Robert you weren't ready for Chimara." Her voice dropped as she realized what she's said. "I-I'm sorry I know what you went through that night Bryce." "No, no it's fine not talking about him isn't going to change what happened. The least we can do is remember who he was and what he did for all of us." The nurse nodded guiding him to an empty bed that happened to be right across from Cathal's where Lilly was also sitting. Choosing to let it lay Bryce ignored them for the moment. "So do you think you can patch me up? I could have tried but you're a lot better at this healing stuff than I am.

The Classroom

Ikari walked into the classroom seeing that all the students had made it back up. "I'm glad you're all here." She stepped in front of the head desk. "Class is finished for the day if any of you have questions." Seeing a few hands shoot up. "I will NOT be answering them today. Bryce and I will be here tomorrow for anyone who has questions. So that will be it for today you are all dismissed." With Ikari walked out of the room heading as quickly as she could to the infirmary.

Once she got there she saw Lilly sitting with Cathal and Bryce being frantically looked over by the nurse. "Broken ribs, your right arm is almost shattered, your nose, and your left leg has a fracture. What exactly happened to you Bryce?!" Ikari looked over at Lilly before walking to Bryce's side. "Well he was challenged to a duel by that young man over there. As Bryce was about to... end it Lilly jumped in and sent Bryce through a tree." Ikari shrunk down quickly jumping onto the bed curling up in the crook of Bryce's neck licking his cheek softly. "He's going to be alright though isn't he?"

Vergil was the second to last person to enter the classroom, he entered as silently as he could to avoid disrupting whatever was going on, no sense in branding himself a troublemaker this early, it would ruin too much opportunity for fun. He walked in headphones on as the teacher was answering a few questions from his class mates. Melody poked her head out of Vergil's guitar case and yawned as a rather stern and serious looking girls demon was asking questions, Vergil didn't pay much attention and began surverying his classmates, so far the class room was filled with some rather attractive ladies, is eyes drawn back to the stern looking girl, she was rather quiet. [This might be a challenge but there is something about her I think I can get behind] he thought to himself as he playfully flicked Melody's head to see if she really was awake. Melody stuck her tongue out at Vergil and made a shush motion to him and pointed at speaking girl, she was asking their teacher who he was, Vergil found the question silly, their teacher was Bryce, and that is all they needed to know.

Before Bryce could answer the door flew open and some idiot kid challenged him to a duel saying he killed his father, Bryce instructed that they all follow to which Vergil shrugged and signed [Well at least this might be interesting.] to Melody before they left and followed him to the field Vergil payed half attention as they were instructed to hang back, he just shrugged. He watched the fight, if it could be called that, closely, in all reality Bryce was just beating on the kid but before he could kill him some chick came flying in and kicked him off into the distance. The woman's demon yelled at them to get back to the class room Vergil laughed quietly as he made his way back with the other students. After being told that their teacher was to finish the introduction and questioning the next day Vergil decided he would try to chat with some of his new classmates.

Most of his new classmates seemed outgoing and chipper, Vergil then concluded he had to talk with one of the quiet ones. The stern looking girl from before spoke quietly with her demon before exiting quickly. Vergil took Melody from the guitar case and plopped her on his shoulder before following swiftly behind, exiting the room in time to hear something interesting "I-I need to--hide this." the girl said presumably to her demon. The girl carefully wrapped up an object Vergil couldn't see and quickly hid it on top of a bookshelf before asking her demon if they were ready to go. Vergil chose this moment to jump out and "say something". [Hi! I'm Vergil, hell of a class today huh? Seriously challenging the teach to a death match. Choice move on that kids part, the fight didn't even last long enough to learn anything from.] Vergil signed, "Hi! I'm Vergil, hell of a class today huh? Seriously challenging the teach to a death match. Choice move on that kids part, the fight didn't even last long enough to learn anything from." Melody said speaking for Vergil so that the young lady standing before them could understand. "Oh! And I'm Melody, Vergil is my bestest buddy, even if he is a bit of a dummy head sometimes. Anywho even though he didn't ask I'm sure he's dying to know, so I'll ask for him, what are ya hiding up there?" In reaction to her question Vergil picked Melody up by the scruff of her neck, pulling her up to his face and gave her a stern look. As he put her back on his shoulder he started signing again, [Melody you know better than to ask that, we hardly know her and although I am curious she is allowed her secrets and we mustn't pressure her, you know I just wanted to get more acquainted with this pretty girl, you didn't need to bug her like that, wait why are you translating this, this lecture is just for you ya know.] He then turned back to the girl, [Sorry about that she can be handful, say didn't I see you around school last year? You seem familiar, I wasn't in club though, didn't wanna, but I don't know might be fun so I decided to give it a shot this year. Oh goodness where are my manors, and what might your name be?] Just like before Melody spoke for Vergil allowing all around, well everyone who was aware of her existence, to hear Vergil's words. "Melody you know better than to ask that, we hardly know her and although I am curious she is allowed her secrets and we mustn't pressure her, you know I just wanted to get more aquainted with this pretty girl, you didn't need to bug her like that, wait why are you translating this, this lecture is just for you ya know. Sorry about that she can be handful, say didn't I see you around school last year? You seem familiar, I wasn't in club though, didn't wanna, but I don't know might be fun so I decided to give it a shot this year. Oh goodness where are my manors, and what might your name be?" Vergil punctuated his final sentence with his famous smile, bringing his lengthy introduction to a close.

Kyouko sighed while watching Asami check herself in a polished board of all places. It's not really the obvious vanity that her demon displays rather, it's because Kyouko knows that she's just doing it so she can observe how Kyouko manages in different social environments.

"Hi! I'm Vergil, hell of a class today huh? Seriously challenging the teach to a death match. Choice move on that kids part, the fight didn't even last long enough to learn anything from."

Kyouko was suddenly surprised when someone approached her. He seemed to be from the same class but, she couldn't recall seeing him come in earlier. She thought he must have come in when they were all led outside by their instructor. He wasn't the one actually speaking though. Rather, a small fox-lady no more than seven inches was doing the speaking on his behalf.

"Ara? Kitsune? Haven't seen a lot of those lately. Though Vergil seems to be an odd name for one." Asami wasn't actually referring to her gender but to the western origin of her name. Turning around, she noticed Kyouko glaring and hissing at her, implying that she may have done something her retainer found stupid.

Kyouko only nodded at Vergil's original statement. Still, recalling how their instructor looked prepared to kill was a little unsettling. Does it mean that he's hiding another side to the professional exterior he showed earlier? She was probably overthinking, she thought.

"Oh! And I'm Melody, Vergil is my bestest buddy, even if he is a bit of a dummy head sometimes. Anywho even though he didn't ask I'm sure he's dying to know, so I'll ask for him, what are ya hiding up there?"

The little demon finally introduced herself as well, revealing her name to be Melody. She was inquiring about her naginata but before she could answer, again comes Asami with her side comment.

"What kind of fox spirit has a name like Melody? Just curious." Again, Kyouko shot her a glare which practically translates to "Why are you asking so many stupid questions?" "Okay. No more side comments." Asami finally resigns.

"Weapon..." Kyouko managed to blurt out. She didn't really mind since they were from the same class. She didn't really feel nervous about making eye-contact but it seems this Vergil fellow had his attention to his demon, appearing as if he was scolding her. He spoke up again, using some sort of technology but the words sounded mechanical so she waited for the his demon to pipe in.

"Melody you know better than to ask that, we hardly know her and although I am curious she is allowed her secrets and we mustn't pressure her, you know I just wanted to get more aquainted with this pretty girl, you didn't need to bug her like that, wait why are you translating this, this lecture is just for you ya know. Sorry about that she can be handful, say didn't I see you around school last year? You seem familiar, I wasn't in club though, didn't wanna, but I don't know might be fun so I decided to give it a shot this year. Oh goodness where are my manors, and what might your name be?"

Asami was observing the little exchange and having sorted out her thoughts now, drifted to Kyouko's side. "It seems your situations aren't so different after all." Kyouko was just relieved that she didn't blurt anything random again. Like her, the Vergil fellow had a hard time speaking--or maybe he doesn't talk at all? He uses the little object he carries around to compose his thoughts and if the sound coming from it was too inaudible, Melody translates this for him. Though their difference is that Melody literally reads things out word for word whereas Asami does the talking for them, even if it wasn't exactly what Kyouko would say.

"Last year--I skipped a lot..." Kyouko took a deep breath. Until now, she still finds it hard to speak. Asami, noticing this decided to fulfill her role again.

"We weren't really full-time members last year as we had to return to Aokigahara for our personal extensive training. I am Asami, and this is my retainer, Hanabusa Kyouko."

After Asami finished, Kyouko bowed her head slightly, like she always does after Asami introduces them.

ImageMizu, despite being one of the first to leave was one of the last back into the classroom. To their disappointment, the demon Ikari announced that Class was over. Mizu quickly raised their hand, again waving it in the air. They were quite disappointed that class was over and was about to complain about the outcome of todays events when Ikari said that there would be no questions.
"It wasn’t even a question,” they muttered in disappointment, watching Ikari leave the class room.
“Well… That was certainly interesting…” Pavati sighed heavily flicking his tail in distaste.
“I thought it was very good too!” Mizu smiled, “but it wasn’t very fair and I didn’t want class to end so early.”
“Yes, very disappointing. Now! Let’s go!” the snake like demon began to force Mizu out the door but despite his efforts they managed to slip past him, moving back into the classroom.
“We should go talk to our new friends first!” Mizu looked around, a few people conversing.
“Look everyone’s talking to someone else, we shouldn’t interrupt them, that’s rude,” Pavati tried to convoke them.
“Oh! Well I’m sure they won’t mind. Besides I like just listening to conversations.
Another few people had arrived that Mizu hadn’t noticed before, of course Mizu was more than willing to introduce themselves to their new classmates but Pavati on the other hand… Well he was doing his best to try and get Mizu to leave, knowing that if he left them alone, in a class room, with other students around their age something bad would inevitably happen. As usual Mizu would probably anger someone and end up in a fight. Pavati was trying to make a good first impression.
“You really have a problem, don’t you?” Pavati muttered, although he knew already that it was their childishness and naivety that got in the way a lot.
“Yes, that would be you,” they muttered, walking away, Pavati following them.
“That was cruel, even by my standards.”
Although he knew Mizu didn’t mean it. They probably didn’t even know it was a sort of insult.
“HIYA! I didn’t see you before,” Mizu chimed skipping up to the rather angry looking girl, Hanabusa Kyouko, they remembered, though they always had a hard time remembering names. They knew she wanted to ask the girl something but had completely forgotten what that was.
They quickly turned their attention back boy she first addressed.
“Mizu, no interrupting, say sorry,” Pavati hissed in their ear, hovering beside them.
“Oh right! I’m sorry,” they apologised upon their demons request.

Vergil paid close attention to Kyouko's responses to is questions. Although she was incredibly quiet and didn't say much her demon friends seemed to have a good grasp of what she was trying to say so between the two he as able to get the gist of what she was saying. "It seems your situations aren't so different after all." Vergil's curiosity was peaked by these words, what situation could she be in, as he listened on he heard her mention skipping class a lot lost year, and Asami elaborated mentioning special training, Vergil wondered if that was the situation she referred to earlier, although he had a hunch it had more to do with her quiet attitude. After Asami formally introduced the two of the Kyouko gave a cute little bow, and Vergil smiled chuckling silently. [Wow, I had no idea you were so formal] Vergil signed with Melody translating. [I don't mean it in a bad way or anything, it's just so different from how the people here act.] Vergil then gave his best attempt at returning the gestures, although it probably looked significantly more forced and clumsy. [It is nice to formally meat you Kyouko, and you too Asami. You mentioned your weapon, would you like to see mine? And special training? Would it be rude of me to inquire about that as well? I am a very curious person, so if I happen to over step my bounds please don't hesitate to say so. I just can't resist trying to get to know someone with as much natural grace and charm as you.] Vergil took a moment to compose his thoughts before continuing.

[I know it is probably much too personal a question but --] Vergil started to sign another question when the bubbly girl from before came bounding up “HIYA! I didn’t see you before,” she said, seemingly talking to Kyouko “Oh right! I’m sorry,” she turned to Vergil apparently apologizing for interrupting them. Vergil turned to the girl [Hello, Mizu was it? I am Vergil, and this is Kyouko, and of course this little one here is Melody and lastly we have Asami. And although it is wonderful to meet you, I am currently engaged in a conversation with this beautiful young lady. I would love to get better acquainted with you at another time, I realize it is rude of me to ask but would you possibly mind leaving us be for a short while? I am sure there are other members of the class who would love to meet you as well, perhaps that loner looking kid, I think his name was Ciel, or there's Kiera, she seemed rather friendly.]

Vergil then turned to Melody and signed something quickly, Melody did not translate this however but she wander over to Asami and whispered to hear as quietly as possible, hoping Mizu didn't hear, "Vergil asked me to tell Kyouko, but I didn't want to surprise her, he says, it seemed like she is rather shy so he thought Kyouko might not like being overwhelmed by Mizu and her bubbly personality while trying to talk to us. If he's wrong, he is very sorry he just doesn't wanna scare her away because he is having a good time talking to her."

"Wow, I had no idea you were so formal--I don't mean it in a bad way or anything, it's just so different from how the people here act."

Kyouko felt strange at the compliment. She practically felt that due to trying to not stand out, she somehow stood out more and it was a little bit embarrassing. She didn't really think that her gestures came off as formal but, maybe it's just the difference in their upbringing.

It is nice to formally meet you Kyouko, and you too Asami. You mentioned your weapon, would you like to see mine? And special training? Would it be rude of me to inquire about that as well? I am a very curious person, so if I happen to over step my bounds please don't hesitate to say so. I just can't resist trying to get to know someone with as much natural grace and charm as you.

"Ah--!" Kyouko was kind of struggling to respond to so many statements as of the moment. They seemed to have recalled her mention of her training regimen and it was brought up in-between compliments and offers but, Kyouko can't really find the proper words to explain so she turns to Asami for help.

"Basically--" Asami began, used to offering long, drawn-out statements. "Our training regiment isn't really something that anyone can just enter into. I'm not saying it's much more difficult than what is being offered to you, mind you. It has more to do with the differences between the way we strengthen our magic and yours. I don't know how you choose to strengthen yours but in our case, we strengthen ours through exchange between demon and retainer. With the reasons being that creatures like us are more revered by the likes of Kyouko and her clan, they generally come to us to earn wordly favors. This is where offerings comes in, and that is what she is currently training at. Her offerings to me are what dictates how much I can help her improve her powers." Asami paused to see if they were still listening before carrying on.

"I am a minor deity. So for starters, ceremonial dances and the other ritualistic things will suffice as I can't exactly demand for anything other than that lest the myriad gods punish me for extortion. For every time Kyouko exorcises in my name, she receives a fragment of my power which is currently used for her maintenance. Kyouko is just still a beginner so of course she has to train." Asami finally finishes her lengthy explanation.

"English please!" Kyouko spoke up. She wasn't sure if the two can understand what she said given that even she has a hard time keeping up with Asami's explanations.

"You're all mages so there's no problem now is there?" Asami just laughs, always amused whenever Kyouko exhibits any sort of emotional outburst. Vergil was about to ask again but this time, Mizu went up to them.

“HIYA! I didn’t see you before,”

Kyouko was about to respond but Mizu's demon Pavati scolded her. Vergil also threw in his own piece of mind as well, redirecting Mizu to the others in the room. Somehow, it made her sad as Mizu was only trying to get to know them.

"Vergil asked me to tell Kyouko, but I didn't want to surprise her, he says, it seemed like she is rather shy so he thought Kyouko might not like being overwhelmed by Mizu and her bubbly personality while trying to talk to us. If he's wrong, he is very sorry he just doesn't wanna scare her away because he is having a good time talking to her."

Melody explains to Asami the justifications for his actions but Asami just laughed. "Haha!!! Kyouko exorcises vengeful spirits and has stared death in the face at least once. I don't think she'll get scared from others bearing the same fate. At least that's what I think."

"Wait--" Before Mizu could leave, Kyouko reached out and grabbed Mizu's arm as well as Vergil's, pushing them towards each other. "I don't mind--more people."

On the other hand, Asami turned to Pavati, Mizu's demon. "I'm curious about you though. It's not every day I see a deity like you." Asami didn't really know a lot about dragons but she recalls other spirits trembling upon mention of the dragon god's name. Maybe--just maybe...
