Name: Zane Birthkeeper
Title: Echo of Positive Energy
Age: 840,000,000 years old
Race Description: For each emotion, there is an essence. For every essence, there is a starchild.
Children of the stars, created by the very fabric that designed the balls of gas- Each one, contains the embryo of a starchild. When that star dies, the Starchild is birthed, and in the resulting supernova, the Starchild is sent to a dimension away from there own- Where they are to develop there powers. The are ageless as the stars themselves- Living up to billions of years without wane of age- And are allowed to take any form they choose. They are exceptionally wise, though, this clouds their judgement, they assume they are the most intelligent, which is many of their downfalls.
Physically, they can assume any ability they wish- Though most choose to play weak, as to show off there pure mental abilities- mentally, there powers are beyond anything of mortal comprehension, as each starchild embodies an essence of an emotion- From love, to happiness, to sadness, to anger. Millions of different emotions, millions of different Starchildren. Of course, one is not bound by the emotion they choose- No, many starchildren can possess the essence of happiness, and there are plenty of 'common' and 'uncommon' essences. They are able to use these powers as they see fit, and have an infinite amount of time to practice and learn different skills- The only limit is their patience, and lack of arrogance.
Once they have developed their powers, they are free to roam the universe and do as they see fit- But most of all, they must balance what essence they are given... If one takes over the other, the universe itself could collapse into darkness.
Starchild Essence: Happiness, Peace, Freedom
Appearance: Young in appearance, this man looks no older then 30, yet, the look in his eyes, the distance of his place... It is clear he is as ageless as he is powerful. His white flesh looks as if it was bleached, and his graying eyes are much like voids in there own rights- The Scars of his past have left a heavy impact on his soul. He is short, no more then 5'1, and physically quite muscless- He looks somewhat malnourished, really, and the bony body he possesses reveals that for fact. His hair is blonde, shaggy and on the short side, much like his body. He wears robes of white, small slip on shoes and white gloves which have a pattern on them. He also wears, of course, white baggy pants, and has a tendency to wear his hood every now and then- Though, he rarely has an actual need of it.
Personality/Slight Bio: He is depressed, as he was cursed into, and feels trapped in his body. He cannot obtain what he seeks to protect, and that frustrates him to no end. He tries to be quiet in nature, but his curse causes him to only fear, and rage against those who come close to him, to speak with him in any form or way. In this way, he is antisocial, but his duties protect him from causing true harm or pain to those who do not deserve it- He is a Starchild before his emotions, and his emotions are before his own need.
History: Born of a dying star, like his brothers and sisters, Zane Birthkeeper knew only his name, and of his emotions- Happiness, Peace, Freedom. The world that was designed for his training was a large, beautiful field- Where green grass, colorful flowers and blooming trees grew all around. He was given a base form, a humanoid being with no features whatsoever, 2.5 meters in height. For 1000 years he explored his world, without hunger, or thirst. He simply watched the trees move, the grass blow with the wind- As his mind developed into something more.
No one knew why he rose different from the others- Why his emotions were unstable, and impure. All that was known was that he was overcome by his own soul, and in a fit of rage, set fire to his beautiful world. In the blaze, he was caught- Burned to a crisp. But his essence remained- His soul. He was placed into another body, but, not without retribution. The very elements he fought to protect suddenly fought against him- He was trapped in a world of ash and flame, fighting against those he had sought to protect. It was a losing fight from the beginning, but death would give him no peace. His punishment for his insubordination was immortality- He would live 4 billion years in torture, fighting with depression, and anger.
But he knew his duties. He knew he had to do what was required of him. That above his pain and hatred, and constant depression- He would still have to keep balance in the universe. So, by trial through fire, he fought his way through the depression and hatred that locked his mind away from peace, and from the ashes of his destroyed world, and destroyed soul, he arose stronger, and wiser then he ever thought possible. But he knew that there would still be evil, still be emotions that kept his own body locked away, out there- And he would not allow others to go through that pain. He would spread his ability- The joy, and happiness, freedom, to all who would accept it- It was his duty. All negative energy in the universe must be snuffed out.
And so he traveled, for thousands of years until he found a particular planet- The inhabitants called it 'earth'. He examined this planet for some time, watching the people there. They embodied so many emotions- Both negative, and positive. It confused him. Everywhere else he had been, there had been either one or the other- There was no true balance- Yet here, on this planet, there was. Some were happy, some were sad, and Zane had an odd feeling to protect such a balanced world- His quest would still go on, of course, but rather then destroy all negative energy, he learned, as all Starchildren do, that there must be balance for the universe to be at true harmony. This was his place- His world. He would keep this world balanced, and make sure no harm came to it. Despite his feelings, his pasts, his emotions.
He would keep, the balance.
Abilities: All Starchildren develop different abilities, but due to his constant fighting within his own mind, and his own prison, his emotions have been crafted as an offensive weapon in most cases.
Starchild Emotions- Although not directly, Starchildren can indirectly cause there primary emotions and essence onto whatever they wish- Though, those strong of heart and willpower can easily block such an ability.
Tense Essence- Each Starchilds essences are drained as they use there powers and abilities, aside from basic Starchild Emotions. To regain Essence, they must feel the specific emotion they possess around them- For instance, those who use happiness as there emotion, those around them must be happy for them to gain power. The more people that are happy, the stronger the Starchild becomes. There is no limit to this strength, though there is a limit to its range, depending on the abilities of the Starchild. Starchildren can "lock" essence in them for later use, but the amount stored heavily depends on how long that Starchild has trained it to be.
Flight- All Starchildren can fly, and they can speed up depending on how long they fly- The longer, the faster.
Burst of Speed- The longer the Starchild stays in motion, the faster they become.
Emotional Apparition- Use there Essence, Starchildren can create objects from nothing. This is a very low cost ability.
Essence of Levitation- Basic levitation, nothing more to it other then the effect it can carry depends on the amount of Essence in the user.
False Freedom- Zane wraps the opponent in chains that are summoned from yellow portals, which, at first glance, seem like they are easy to break- They crush from the simplest of tugs, and for a moment it seems as if they do absolutely nothing. But, a well tuned warrior will be able to feel there powers, and abilities, have been slightly weakened. He can use this ability as much as he sees fit, however, it does drain him of his Essence.
Star Buster- Zane focuses his Essence into a punch or kick, the power of which varies depending on how much essence he possesses.
Beam of Peace- Using all of Zanes Essence, he can form a beam of energy which consumes and disintegrates all negative energy- Once again, the power of this ability depends on the users Essence.
