Profile

Medusa Gorgon is a secretive witch who desires to see the world put in motion, and she's not afraid to give it the push to keep things interesting. While she might seem like a friendly person when she is among most people, the pleasant demeanor is but a ruse. Behind a practiced smile lurks a sadistic personality that will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. In her own world she dedicated her life to research, creating various dangerous substances and hurt many people in the name of science. While she might rely a bit too much on her magic as well as manipulating people to her cause, Medusa is a dangerous person once she sets her sights on a goal.

Magic Incantation

In order to use her magic, Medusa needs to use voice incantation in order to conjure up power. Against more skilled opponents she will basically be calling her attacks out, thereby giving them time to react. Not to mention, if Medusa is silenced, she can't cast her magic. Most of her magic she needs to use her arms to cast properly as well. A skilled opponent might notice and read the movements Medusa needs to cast her magic, anticipating where an attack will come from and be able to use this to their advantage.

Ranged Battle

Most of Medusa's attacks work best in melee range, and she doesn't really have any attacks that can work well at long range. For that reason, Medusa prefers combat up and close should she engage in it.

Incognito

Medusa wants to go unnoticed as much as possible by most people. That in return means she will be concealing her true nature and intentions by using Soul Protect. Unless she wishes to reveal her nature to whose who can see souls, feel energy and so on, she can't go around using her magic for trivial matters nor minor fights. Like a true snake, Medusa will lie curled up, biding her time until it's time to strike.

Magical nature

Medusa's soul is very distinct and powerful, which means that if she's not using Soul Protect, stealth is pretty much impossible for her. People with a supernatural sense in some way are able to feel her presence and her magic, as well as knowing exactly what she is and that her magic is pure chaos and destruction. There is no way Medusa can fight and go unnoticed at the same time.

Info Files

Vector Magic

Most witches have powers based on what you might refer to as a spirit animal -- in Medusa's case, the snake. Medusa's magic is based on something called vectors, black arrows of magic that strike her enemies and often behave like snakes. In order to cast her magic a witch must cite an incantation, and in Medusa's case it's the phrase, "Nake, Snake, Cobra, Cobubura." The more powerful magic she aims to cast, the more times she must recite this mantra. As well as needing to use incantations, most of Medusa's magic relies on gestures with arms and hands.

Vector Arrow

An offensive spell that sends vectors from behind and around Medusa towards her target while Medusa guides them with the help of her hands. These vectors can cut and tear into most organic flesh just like a knife would, and can be deflected or cut through in the same way. Often there are many of these vectors when Medusa uses them, attacking in a zig zag pattern where she directs them. A specific vector arrow can be called up to serve Medusa as a tail. She can anchor that tail into the ground, often using it as a seat and to maintain her balance during battle.

Vector Plate

Vector Plate is a black arrow that will push anything that lands on it in the direction that it points, with the equal speed and force as if they were free falling. For it to be effective, one has to be touching the arrow or be a few centimeters over it. In addition it also has to be placed on a flat surface like a floor, wall or ceiling.

Steam Vector

Steam Vector is a defensive spell that Medusa can channel by summoning several vector arrows from the ground around her in very close proximity that will block most physical attacks. After the initial casting of this spell, it can also become offensive with the voice command 'compress', a gesture toward one target, and then closing one of her fists. This turns the vectors on the target, which then surround the target and then compress them with crushing force. The vectors can be avoided if the target is fast enough.

Vector Snakes

Medusa breeds countless little black, snake-like creatures inside her body which can be used for spying on others. Her snakes can be placed inside a target through an open wound or a natural orifice. Once a snake is inside a target, a magical connection is formed allowing Medusa to track the snake to most locations within 20 miles, to listen in on what the snake hears (more below), and to communicate to the snake's carrier. One snake by itself isn't very dangerous, but should Medusa be able to get several snakes inside somebody, she can trigger a magical explosion and deal significant if not lethal damage. She must in line of sight in order to use this last power.
Receiving signals from the snakes is not a passive ability, as Medusa does need to focus on a specific snake to actively listen in. This is easier done within short range, and Medusa and the person infected with the snake can't be farther than 20 miles apart. Because of these factors Medusa is very careful in using her snakes without what she considers a good reason, as frivolous use would draw attention to her activities.
Snakes can be physically removed or destroyed via other appropriate means. After a certain amount of time, usually a week or two, snakes not kept inside Medusa's body will naturally die off.
NOTE: No snakes will be placed inside a character without OOC consent!

Support Magic

Analysis Disassemble

A spell meant to break through magical defenses. After casting vector arrow on an opponent with magical defense, such as a barrier, ward, shield, or other defense, Medusa can attack the protective magic by calling the voice command Analysis Disassemble. The vector arrows will tear into the magic to create an opening for further attacks. This attack might not work on magic stronger than her own, or magic of a very different nature, like holy magic. She can target permanent wards or shields set over an object, but again, her technique may not be very effective.

Arithmetic Magic: Magic Calculation

A magic spell used by witches in order to improve the magic of others, especially magic that is spatial or related to portals. This magic needs to be channeled, and Medusa has to stand in a specific position with her arms bent and crossed, unable to move while doing this lest she break her concentration. This spell is useless on its own, but it can make it easier and slightly quicker for another magic user to cast their own dimensional spell, like teleportation or other spells that require a lot of concentration and calculation to use it.

Vector Boost

This move is something that Medusa can use on others in order to boost their attacks, not herself. By placing an arrow on a weapon or on somebody's body part, such as an arm or a leg, the attack power of that body part doubles for one initial attack. It's important to note that the boost works only when the attack is applied in the direction that the arrow points to.

Vector Conduct

Casting this spell will allow Medusa to place arrows initially only visible to Medusa and to whomever she casts the magic on; however, those gifted with unusual sight beyond the mundane might be able to see these arrows, as they are sure to leave some magical residue behind. This is a handy way for Medusa to point out things to certain people without letting others know, or to show an ally the way to go in specific places.

Crona

Ragnarok

Ragnarok is a rude and violent demon weapon that isn't very nice to Crona, using every opportunity to bully his meister. Enhanced by Medusa, he is fused with the Black Blood and aids Crona for their combined survival. Ragnarok is unable to separate from Crona, except when he's in his demon weapon form.

Black Blood

A black substance that has the same properties as blood as well as combat abilities in addition to healing. Its most prominent feature is that it induces madness in people, and that is very easily spotted in Crona. The Black Blood can harden and shape itself, even outside Crona's body. This allows Crona to stop bleeding, dampen physical attacks and even attack others, in attacks like Bloody Needle, Bloody Slicer, Bloody Lance, Bloody Coat, Rose Thorn Storm and Thorn Defense. After being enhanced by Medusa, Crona can also shape two new arms and two swords in the same shape as Ragnarok, although they lack the power and sentience that Ragnarok himself has. In same cases Black Blood can infect others. Due to its dark nature, Black Blood is weak against holy attacks. NOTE: Black Blood infection will only be done with player consent!

Swordsman

Crona is skilled in the use of a sword and can hold their own against most opponents that they face.

Screech techniques

Crona has soul attacks with Ragnarok, where the blade emits a high pitched screech that adds sound waves to enhance regular sword attacks. Screech Alpha is a projectile slash, Screech Beta is a more powerful slash. Screech Gamma is a combo attack with multiple slashes. Screech Delta is an attack that requires the use of at least three arms in order to slash out and generate sound waves in close proximity around Crona.

Black Dragon

Crona and Ragnarok can use soul resonance in order to absorb nearby souls from the Soul Eater world in order to add a temporary power boost to Crona's attacks.


Relationships

Name Standing Thoughts
Kirikou Friendly...? A meister he might be, but he has his uses. Not that he is to be trusted with details, but he has been easy to manipulate so far whenever I need a pawn to get my opponents to move their pieces.
Serori Friendly A common patient in ward 17. Perhaps sharper than most would give her credit for...
Nine Friendly Not just a mere pawn. A former person who's desperate for any recognition that he will easily do what is expected of him. Quite handy.
Faruja Hostile A blabbering hypocrite.
Zero Kiriyu Hostile A potential eyesore if he decides to interfere in my business.
D Love It's too sad that he denies himself in so many ways. No matter what he might believe, he remains mine. And perhaps he will see reason on his own eventually.
Dracula Vlad Tepes Friendly The Field Marshal is a capable man... and useful to be on good terms with.
Kagenashi Hostile This fox thinks she's more clever than she is. And sooner or later she will find a snake at her throat if she continues playing this silly game of hers.
Juno Eclipse Potential specimen It's such a shame, really. From patient to traitor. Though I do guess this opens up a few new possibilities.
