The first of the Abyssal Ships to rise from the wreckage of their former vessels and their currently-undisputed leader, Samar is one of many vengeful spirits of ships lost to war and forgotten at the bottom of the ocean. With her home now at the ship graveyard of Iron Bottom Sound, Samar leads the Abyssal Fleet in their goal to punish those of the surface for their forgetfulness and disrespect, blasting away civilization and casting it beneath the waves. Samar is fully equipped to carry out her goals, as well: able to survive underwater and walk on the ocean's surface, and equipped with powerful guns and a faithful, vast army whose numbers only grow with each ship they sink, her confidence and planning are well supported.
ABYSSAL SHIP: Samar is an Abyssal Ship, the malevolent spirit of a sunken vessel given a physical, biomechanical form. Her main body is humanoid and fleshy, but she can attach herself to a mechanical symbiote equipped with a ship's guns, energy weapons, crushing jaws and powerful limbs for combat. Even her 'human' body is incredibly durable, able to survive explosive damage that would blow a normal human away. Additionally, she has no need to breathe and can survive at the bottom of the ocean indefinitely, and she can also walk or float upon water or similar liquids while conscious. Finally, she can slowly regenerate injuries she sustains to her fleshy or mechanical forms by resting among large concentrations of shipwrecks, though this is not enough to mitigate damage during battle.
LEVIATHAN MODE: Samar and the other Abyssal Ships have a goal to send surface-dwelling life to the bottom of the ocean. To do so more effectively, she is capable of becoming giant, similar in scale to a battleship. This is much more effective in causing widespread destruction or fighting other warships than their human-sized forms would otherwise be. (Power shared by Flagships and Capital Ships of the Abyssal Navy (see NPCs))
IRON BOTTOM SOUND: A stretch of water in the Pacific ocean where several large naval battles took place and dozens of ships were sunk in the process. The broad stretch of shiprecks at the bottom of the ocean is the home base for the Abyssal Ships, where they recover between battles and plan for future ones. The presence of so many sunken vessels creates an aura that empowers the Abyssal Ships, spawning new ones when others fall and healing those wounded in battle but not yet sunk. Ships sunk by the Abyssals will often be brought to Iron Bottom Sound to reinforce its aura and inspire their spirits to rise again as one of the Abyssals.
ABYSSAL NAVY: Samar is the leader of the Abyssal Ships, a navy formed from the malicious spirits of warships sunk during battle and then given physical forms. The Abyssal Navy is composed of various classes of ships, organized into destroyers, cruisers, submarines, carriers, and battleships. Each class of ship comes with its own strengths and weaknesses, and in turn, they are ranked by power. Ships with a red aura, Elites, are more powerful than the more common standard ships, while ships with a yellow aura, Flagships, are even stronger and are capable of leading a fleet if one of the unique Capital Ships (see below) is not present. Elites and Flagships only have a chance of forming when a weaker ship has been sunk; if its will is strong enough, it will persist and reform as a stronger vessel of the same class. Naturally, Elites are uncommon, and Flagships are rarer still. (PL 20-29 depending on presence of Elites/Flagships. If accompanying one of the Capital Ships listed below, PL will match theirs.)
SAVO: The Airfield Princess, secondary leader of the Capital Ships alongside the Battleship Princess Samar. While highly durable, she does not have much in the way of direct weaponry aside from the jaws of the device on her right arm. However, she excels in anti-air assaults and can generate various Mk.II aircraft to harass opponents from afar, including fighters, dive bombers, and torpedo bombers. (PL 34)
DARWIN: The Seaport Princess, one of the weaker Princess-class Capital Ships and akin to the navy's medic. Most of her focus comes in hastening the repairs and upgrades of her fellow Abyssal Ships between battles, as she does not like to fight on her own. Despite that, like Savo she comes equipped with powerful anti-air weaponry and the ability to generate various Mk.II aircraft. (PL 33)
WAKE: The Isolated Island Demon, currently the most powerful of the Demon-class Capital Ships. Wake, like Savo and Darwin, is mostly equipped to fight at a range, with the most powerful anti-air cannons in the fleet and several Mk.II and III aircraft at her disposal. Even up close, however, she outclasses most Demon-class Capital Ships with the powerful jaws of her mechanical portion and a direct energy cannon in its mouth. (PL 33)
ANCHORAGE: One of the mid-powered Capital Ships, the Anchorage Demon is equipped with a certain amount of all-around ability, focused mostly on direct weaponry with a strong capacity with anti-air and torpedoes. She is also able to blast an energized attack that temporarily weakens the opponent, and she can create Mk.II fighters and dive bombers to assist her if needed. (PL 32)
ROSSEL: The Armored Carrier Demon is a Capital Ship on par with Anchorage. Equipped with a wide array of main guns, some anti-air, and a special focus on torpedoes, she is also able to create Mk.II fighters and dive bombers and tends to rely on them in conjunction with her main weapons. If someone gets close enough, however, muscular arms and crushing jaws will do the job well enough. (PL 32)
LEYTE: The Southern Demon, the weakest of the Capital Ships. Leyte, while weak, is nonetheless more agile than her sisters and bristles with weaponry that makes up for quality with quantity. Vicious claws can tear through armor as well, and she can summon Mk.II fighters to harass enemies if needed. (PL 30)
ESCORT FORTRESS: A trio of hovering orbs, split down the middle into mouths. The Escort Fortress often serves as an accompaniment to certain Capital Ships when they are out on their own. Equipped with cannons and Mk.II fighters and bombers, it's not something to send out on a mission on its own, but it can provide some harrassment to get the pressure off a Capital Ship. (PL matches that of the escorted Capital Ship.)
SUBMERGED: Samar can survive underwater but suffers a notable reduction to combat ability. She isn't quite as maneuverable underwater and cannot make use of her ship artillery while submerged. This is a trait shared by other Abyssal Ships, save for the submarine types.
SUNKEN SHIPYARD: Samar and the Abyssal Ships can't enjoy the healing effects of standard medicine or mechanical repairs. Aside from magical healing, the only way they can be repaired after battle is to return to Iron Bottom Sound, where the aura around the sunken vessels will fix any damage dealt to them over time. This makes field repairs very difficult. Additionally, this healing is not potent enough to make a significant difference in the heat of battle.
GOLIATH SYNDROME: Leviathan Mode, while it provides better large-scale combat ability, is not without its issues. It makes it easier for Flagships and Capital Ships to fight larger opponents, but it becomes much more difficult for them to fight smaller opponents in a one-on-one battle. Additionally, there's a significant cooldown time after shifting size, so they can't do so more than once in the course of a single battle.
SO JEALOUS: Samar and the Abyssal Ships have a very strong resentment toward any naval vessel that has not been sent to the bottom of the ocean. Samar, like the Flagships and Capital Ships, is able to restrain herself enough to not sink any ship she sees, but it's a very difficult urge to hold back and will often lead to no small amount of hostility on her part toward the crew and the ship itself. Elites and standard ships do not have this restraint and will only be able to keep control if ordered by a Flagship or a Capital Ship.
