Name: Titus Merin
Personality:Titus follows the path of the darkness vigorously, and as such thinks very little of those that don't follow the path. He is arrogant to a point, believing in his abilities beyond that of others. Titus is willing to sacrifice others so that he may continue living, and sacrifices need to be made in order for progress to florish. In battle he is a thing to behold, believing in his abilities. He has a short and fiery temper, something which manifested itself inside him when he chose his path.
Description: Titus is around 6 foot 2, with a lean and athletic build. He has light blue eyes, and fairly long, but incredibly messy black hair. His skin is very pale, and he has a scar on his right arm, running from his hand up to his elbow. He has two tattoo's, one a a cloaked warrior on his left arm, the second the name of his blade across his back. When he is not in armour he is in simple black robes.
Armour Class: Medium black Armour
Background: Titus was born into a wealthy and highly influential family on a fairly advanced technological society, overseen by a Temple. It is possible that due to his upbringing he thought himself superior to others, due to the high level of influence his family had on the world, and he was spoilt from a young age.
However he always lived in envy of his older sibling Marcus, who seemed to get everything he ever wanted in life, as well as the love and respect from their father, something which Titus never received. He was driven by anger and a burning hate when his keyblade first appeared, and Titus couldn't help but rub it in his brothers face, he had a power which was more than his brother would ever receive. His father had collected blades that were throughout history, and Titus' favourite was the arming blade that the knights of old used as swords, thus he was elated when DurIa came to him in the form of an arming blade.
If he hadn't be marked by his keyblade, then he would be set for life, having wealth and power that were beyond that of most others. However that was not the life for him, and when he was discovered to have a keyblade he was taken to the temple for training. For his nature, and the fact that he enjoyed a challenge he set out on the Path of Darkness, an area where he could focus his anger and hate and use them effectively against any who opposed him.
He advanced quickly, something which fueled his contempt and arrogance of others more and more, before he descended on his first real mission, his first targets. Some of the heartless had managed to find their way onto his world, and he along with a few others were sent to stop them. It was outside his family estate where the final battle was fought, his father, weak willed had become a slave to the darkness. While the enemy were fairly weak Titus enjoyed the fight, allowing his callous nature to guide him as he sacrificed his own family to his father, but helping the workers who had proven their worth to society escape, protecting more people in the process. He took his fathers life that die before he and his fellows killed the last of the heartless, an act which shows how far he is willing to go to achieve his goals.
Titus was a quick learner, and utterly confident in his abilities though his character got darker and darker as he progressed. He began to see others as weak, and that those that were not good enough needed to be sacrificed so that the worthy could be protected better.
Keyblade: DurIa, the dark abyss. Titus keyblade copies that of an arming sword, a blade that can be wielded with one hand easily and useful for cutting or thrusting. It means he has to get close to his opponents, but that is no problem for Titus, who has spent time honing his abilities. The blade itself is red.
Combat Techniques and Abilities:
Dark Aura: The Keybearer focuses his hate and rage into a series of quick blasts of dark energy. These can be directed to a single target or dispersed across numerous foes. Each blast does small damage, but this technique is easy to use at a moments notice and easy to incorporate into sword combos. It is a favourite of beginners and veterans alike, but becomes of limited use against more resilient enemies.
Cloak of False Sight: The Dark equivalent of Sanctuary, the Keybearer envelops himself in darkness rendering himself invisible to standard sight. With focus and training, he can even hide himself from other practitioners of the Dark Arts, but renders himself unable to attack. Like all defences, this is not infallible and the Nobodies in particular seem somehow able to pierce the cloak easier than others.
Unlock: Arguably the keyblade’s most powerful ability is to release captive hearts and scatter them to the dark. However, with the right mindset and enough strength, a Keybearer can also release the heart and soul from a still living being, effectively rendering them fodder for the heartless and the dark realm. Such a brutal act requires utter conviction and callousness, for to falter even momentarily will result in feedback and subsequently catastrophic damage. The Keybearer impales the victim on the tip of their blade, not a physical wound but rather a spiritual one in which the elements of mind heart and body are separated over the course of a few moments or sometimes even a minute if the individual is strong.
Quake: With built up energy, the Keybearer strikes the ground with his keyblade, causing the earth to rupture and split beneath the feet of his enemies. Jagged rock will erupt from the ground and scatter opponents from their feet. This spell requires that the foe be somehow earthbound, as an agile foe will be able to leap clear in time. Therefore it becomes ideal for larger heavy opponents.
