Home: Who knows?

Family: His children; Naomi, Abel and Nevan.
Friends: None to speak of.
Enemies: There are many.
Marital Status: Married to his mistress, Kenna.

Image


Body: He stands tall and strong with a lean build. He walks proudly, powerfully and with no sign of hesitation.

Face: His eyes hold the hard gaze of a soldier, a veteran of war and horrific times. His eyes are bright, pale blue, but his left holds a tinge of crimson from when an ancient curse had taken hold of him. His ears are slightly pointed, but usually hidden by his hair. His bone structure seems to be perfectly synchronized; his chin slim but not pointed and his expression often stern or downright bored.

Hair: Straight and long. Once fair, but slowly turning dark.

Armour: Across his torso he wears a plate armour, made in layers of 'strips' a couple of inches thick that have been placed together to form a base of protection. These places interlock and overlap to provide a suitable arrangement between flexibility and protectiveness. The armour is dark grey, perhaps black. Underneath the vambrace and gauntlet his right arm is wrapped in a bloodstained cloth, which sometimes shows through the small gaps in his armour, a thread sticking out here and there.

His legs are covered by armoured greaves layered in a similar fashion to the rest of him, though his boots are thick and leather, only partially covered by metal.

Around his waste he wears a belt, and large tears of black material hang from underneath it and his armour to partially cover his backs and sides. On the left of his belt hangs a long, slightly curved blade of elvish make. Finally, he often wears a long, dark, travelling robe with a hood that shrouds his appearance.

Casual Clothing: Cenoic is often seen wearing the clothes of a nobleman, with little to no armour, though he will often keep a sword ceremonially. He is particularly fond of dark, blue and purple hues.

Personality

Traits: Strong, proud, intelligent and untrustworthy. Cenoic is a man who constantly attempts to play at his opponents weak points, and turn multiple foes against each other. He also strongly believes that a man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a true man, and so he dedicates much of his time to his children and wife.
However, his nobility is shrouded by a layer of darkness; he came under the seductive power of all kinds of evil magics, and since has never looked back.
In truth, although this man will rarely appear to be as such, he is a powerful overlord; with an array of dark creatures under his command and many powerful artifacts in his possession. He is a strategist, and whatever he sets his sight on, you can guarantee he will eventually get.

Current goals: None.

Equipment

Personal weapon: An endlessly long, thick, chain. It's black in colour; its surface crusted crimson in blood. Out of each loop extends a razor sharp curved blade, and each extension is on the opposite side from the last. He grips it without a hilt or handle, often causing injury to himself as he fights. This chain is enchanted to accelerate Cenoic's already impressive healing factor when it strikes an opponent, and through dark manipulation Cenoic has this weapon deadly to wield unless they possess his blood.

Secondary weapon: A slightly curved long sword of elvish make, enchanted to burn what it cuts with a white and black flame - a flame that both burns and freezes flesh at once.

Powerful Artifact: Cenoic came to be the keeper of a timeless book that holds the darkest and deepest secrets of magic, sealing and reality. Through the power gained by studying from this book, Cenoic earned the title of 'The Fallen', and is now trusted to be the book's custodian and guard its endless and forbidden knowledge. Cenoic never has the book on him, but it is always accessible to him. In addition, the effort Cenoic has gone into making sure the book is protected and cannot be taken from him is astounding and no-one has yet to come close to reaching it.

Skills and Abilities
(not complete)


Ancient Curse: A feature once most commonly attributed to Cenoic was the bountifulness of blood. At one time, as a result of an unnamed and ancient curse, Cenoic would bleed uncontrollably, and as a result he often appeared quite wounded. His blood became bonded with a malevolent and foreign source, and as a result his body underwent significant anatomical changes; giving him power at the expense of constant pain. His curse not only gave him some extremely specific abilities, but each individual cell can multiply itself rapidly and regenerate by potentially an infinite amount, limited only by his own inner "well" of energy.

Though Cenoic later learned ancient magic that allowed him to greatly slow, but not completely remove, the negative consequences, he remains capable of freely using all of the abilities that the curse granted him. In simple terms, these abilities greatly enhance Cenoic's power to cast 'blood magic', or literally, using his blood as a means of offence, defense and power. The three main components of this magic are regeneration, blood manipulation, and blood elementalism.

Regeneration means that Cenoic cannot die of any fatal wound. Even if cut into scraps, those scraps would slither back together, rejoin and regenerate until Cenoic once more stood as a fully formed person. The speed of this regeneration is as such that it is visible to the naked eye, often occurring quicker than damage can be dealt to him. As a passive ability, it also occurs whether or not Cenoic wishes to use it.

Blood manipulation, a rather violent process, allows Cenoic to manipulate the blood in his body and change its form into various physical extensions of itself. This can be blades, armour, extra limbs, or just about anything that he can think of. These objects can always be seen for their darkly crimson texture, even if physically they can be made harder than steel.

Blood elementalism is the study of using blood as an elemental base for sorcery, and Cenoic has put a great amount of effort into mastering it. Due to its liquid state, many of these elemental spells are similar to those one would find cast by a water mage, though Cenoic's ability to manipulate his blood allows for each drop to harden, soften or change shape at any moment. Cenoic could cast a tidal wave of blood that turns into an avalanche of rock, or a crimson mist that becomes a storm of sharp specks that flay fresh from bone.

Sealing Abilities: Upon gaining the title of The Fallen, Cenoic sought to expand his knowledge greatly by learning the arts of his predecessor, who was a master of Sealing Techniques. Cenoic, after years of study, has come to have a broad knowledge of the subject that is finally comparable to his former. In simple terms, sealing magics represent the school of being able to seal anything one can imagine (including objects, magics, or concepts) into a physical object or an extra-dimensional space, which can then be summoned and unsealed at will. It represents an infinite armoury potentially holding whatever Cenoic could possibly need, including curses, spells, minions to do his bidding, weapons, objects, or more.

Dimensional Manipulation: Through his years of experimenting with forgotten magics and sealing, Cenoic has learned to bend dimensions themselves to his will in a limited manner. These include phasing himself or others between realities, or creating strange anomaly such as bending two distant points in space into one, or changing the distance between two locations. He can even experience the fourth dimension, in a limited fashion. In day to day life and combat situations, Cenoic can use dimensional manipulation to simulate teleportation, or even phase into a reality where an attack can't reach him - leaving a decoy of magic behind that it merely harmlessly passes through.

Forgotten and Forbidden Magic: By studying and mastering some of what's contained within the enigmatic book he is guardian of, Cenoic has learned many forgotten and forbidden arts at the very depths of knowledge itself. As a result, Cenoic's power grew to be so encompassing and potentially catastrophic that he was invited to sit upon a pantheon of deities who overlook the multiverse.

Physical/Non Magical Abilities: Cenoic belonged to a particular culture of Elves who, aside from their powerful sorcery, were the well-known creators of a swordsmanship style known as Blade Dancing. Blade Dancing involves an offensively-defensive style, consisting of wide sweeps, spins and dance-like choreography; Cenoic is highly skilled at this. Among other things, Cenoic is also a capable athlete and acrobat.

History

The Nerami Ceren.

Cenoic is a man who has transcended power and mortality. A champion who underwent many quests and at some point lost his way in the world. He is now a ruler, controlling an estate that is an unending and chaotic abyss that lies neither in Hell, Heaven or the land of mortals. It is a place of paradox and purgatory, but far deeper and more lasting.

In his native tongue, this plane is known as the Nerami Ceren, and is a broken place that lies on the edge of existence; in the swirling and chaotic fires of wild magic. It is a broken world whose inhabitants are either there on Cenoic's personal invitation, or those who create paradox by not having completed what they were created to do. It is, in sense, a forgotten waste factory created to set right those things neither Gods, Demons or the servants of Death are able, or willing to do.

Long term effects of the Nerami Ceren are madness and the inability to ever find order or schedule. The atmosphere itself will easily corrupt those who are too weak in willpower to fight against it.

Regular inhabitants to the Nerami Ceren include beings from all walks of reality: Lesser Gods, Demons, Souls, Spirits, Reapers, Death Dealers and Extradimensional Entities.

So begins...

Cenoic shook his head slowly, his hand feeling behind him for some kind of knife. When he had one, he slid it towards him and began to walk slowly towards Assa. "No, I'm not going to be like anything, I'll save me the trouble and just eat you instead."

Cenoic stopped as he reached the table and idly began to spin the knife around his hand. "Since I don't like to waste good meat, I suppose it is both." He then flicked the knife so it flew into the table, the tip embedding it into the wood several inches.

Cenoic was about to answer, but he felt a familiar tinge that took his attention from her and caused him to lift up his right arm to look at the fore. "Well..." He said casually. "I think my arms broken." He looked back up to Assa at that point and slowly shook his head. "You are lucky, aren't you?" He decided now that he should never have smashed his arm into the counter, and he decided eating her with his arm in that state would possibly cause him more pain than it would her. So he decided not to bother.

Cenoic "And you seemed to have changed." He said, noticing it only now as he dropped his arm by his side. He flinched as this happened, and a drop of blood fell to the table from his left eye. "Now... I am torn..." He looked around casually, unsure of what to do. He wasn't one for going to hospitals as fatal injuries were, to him, unfatal.

Cenoic "Believe what you want," he said as he lifted his uninjured arm to the table to rip the knife out. He then wafted it at her face, not attempting to harm her or even intimidate, but more to see how she would react. "You do not interest me." He said calmly, "I am wondering now if I should keep you alive or not."

Cenoic looked mildly confused himself and then sat down, placing the kinfe on the table again. It was at moments like these that made one wonder if he was simply evil or completely insane. "Oh, you have working eyes then." He said with sarcasm, although it wasn't in his voice. "And your life is, at his moment, not yours to decide."

Cenoic "If you were to decide to take your own life, the chances are you would fail. But if I decided to, the chances are that I would succeed. So the fact of the matter is, your life is mine to decide." He placed the messily bandaged arm on to the table and diverted his attention to look around him. He was still trying to make up his mind.

Cenoic "That's the point." He said calmly, looking down towards the bandaged arm. "It has been like that for longer than I can remember, it never stops bleeding. I don't want it to stop." He wasn't going to unwind the bandage to show the extent of the damage, but it was a little worse than simply broken and bleeding.

Cenoic walked rather calmly into the bar, his eyes narrowed slightly and the bandage wrapped around his arm tighter than usual. "Hmm..." he mumbled, lifting his head and looking around with a burning glare in his eyes. The left one, which was crimson colour, happened to be trickling blood. "She isn't here..."

Cenoic suddenly flicked out his arm, his fingers slightly curled and his hand only several inches from Kennas' throat. "Can I help you?" He asked, not even looking to the woman. He instead kept his gaze on the area of the counter.

Cenoic "I have never met you before." He said quite simply. He slowly turned his head to Cinder, his eyes as dark as ever. "You are much too evil to be Cinder, your soul and aura is dark... It burns almost as much as mine." He said, yet more blood coming from his left eye. He didn't answer Diana, as he felt those who stated the obvious weren't worthy of his time.

Cenoic "Do not speak to me." He said quite calmly to Diana, "Do not invade my thoughts with such trivials. If you were powerful enough you could have had an army ready to assault the world by now, but alas, you don't. Therefor you do not interest me." At that, he turned back to Kenna, slowly blinking. "I have not seen a book, and I do not see why we would want the same thing. For I do not know exactly what you want."

Cenoic "Sit with me." He said calmly, making his way to a booth and calmly sitting down. Then, as he waited for the woman, he continued to speak. "And what would you have me do? Get this book? What then? Why should I take it and hand it to you when I could use it for my own ambitions?"

Cenoic "So you want me to have it?" He asked, turning his head at a slight angle. "You want something more, I do not believe you. You are hiding something or have planned this out much further than you hope me to realise." Intelligence happened to be one of Cenoics strong points, and he would ensure he had all possibilities explored before acting in such a potentially dangerous situation. "Tell me everything - what the book does, what you would do with it should you get it, why you want me to take it..."

Cenoic "Let's make a deal." He said; slowly sliding his bandaged arm across the table. "A partnership. When we get the book, I suggest we work together. Such a powerful artifact can not be held by one person alone. You need me, as I would need you. Just in case the riff-raff come to try and take it back." He smiled a little, nodding his head as he believed his offer to be very just and generous. "And in return I don't have to kill you to get what I want."

Cenoic took the womans hand and shook it with a very tight grip. "I am not a demon." He added on quite calmly, sliding his palm back after the shake to drop it down by his side. "Then at the end of things, I look forwards to sharing my power with such an... Intriguing woman."

Cenoic moved back into the shadow of the booth, watching Kenna with crossed arms. He would stay hidden for now, and not attempt to interrupt. If she was as powerful as he thought she was, she wouldn't require his help.

Cenoic shook his head, confusion in his thoughts just incase Cinder was invading them secretly. "No, that was Cinder. It looked exactly like her, she spoke like her, she even felt like her. I don't know who this Kenna person is, but I assure you that I spoke to Cinder, not this other woman. If you don't believe me, ask her." Cenoic was oh so clever, too clever, infact.

Cenoic "Well, unfortunately for you, I am not lying. So I suggest you go and ask her if you don't believe me." His aim was not to hide the fact he had a meeting, but to instead ensure his own innocence by making out he knew nothing about it. And he would not have lived this long if he wasn't powerful enough to hide such things from those he didn't want to know. Cinder being one of them. If she read his mind she would find nothing but confusion and innocence.

Cenoic "I am not your brother." He said quite simply, to both of the women. "You are not of my family, and frankly it insults me to be called as such." He sighed a little, deciding to think through what was happening before any more trouble occurred. He lifted his feet on to the table and leaned back.
