Milliarde (Spirit: Magnus)
A very scrawny girl, Milliarde is only 5'0 and weights a measly 102 lbs. Her black hair is kept short and held back by a headband. Her dull brown eyes always seem to have a glint of fear in them. Her pale white skin gives her a frail look. However, despite her looks, Milliarde is surprisingly durable and strong.
Milliarde is an extreme coward, constantly running from anything that moves. Because she spent most of her life avoiding human contact, she secretly craves it, hoping that someone strong enough to stand up to Magnus will come along and be her friend. She hates fighting, only because it is more likely to bring Magnus out, not because she doesn't like hurting people or being hurt herself. If forced to interact with people, Milliarde is docile and quick to do whatever is asked of her in hopes that the interaction will end quicker from her obedience. Milliarde sometimes can't differentiate between her thoughts and Magnus' thoughts, causing her to act differently at times and say or do things she normally wouldn't. Milliarde has contemplated suicide many times in the past to release herself from Magnus, but he always found out and stopped her.
It is in Magnus' nature to protect his host, and he takes that to the extreme. He is quick to think that people are going to harm Milliarde. He is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she is safe, whether or not Milliarde wishes him to. Magnus speaks down to others, believing himself to be a superior being. Though some might think his actions are out of love for Milliarde, they are actually out of necessity to keep himself and his host alive. He is manipulative, preferring to convince Milliarde to do things instead of forcing her to. Nothing would please him more than to find a way to separate him and Milliarde.
None (unless you count Magnus as being "magic")
Family Background [Unknown to Milliarde]:
Milliarde was born to a military family from Calitra, her full name would be Milliarde van Belderthor if she could have kept it. The women traditionally are the ones who rule the family. Only females are born from Belderthor women. These women have amazing physical strength and endurance, which is why Belderthor daughters will usually enter the military. Their abilities come from their "family heirloom." This heirloom is a type of symbiotic spirit that lives in the body of the woman. The family claims that the spirit is a piece of a god, but the records to prove it are locked away in the Library of the Gods. When a Belderthor woman is impregnated, a piece of the being will transfer to the baby in the womb. The two are named together and the piece of the being will grow into a full being itself. It is common for Belderthor women to search out their family after leaving the collective, where they learn from their parents about their birthright.
Milliarde grew up in the collective. For as long as she could remember, Milliarde could hear a voice in her head. He said his name was Magnus, and he was her guardian. His voice was sweet as honey, every word he spoke flowed through her, warming her body and filling her with love. Magnus could make her do anything. She loved him, and for that, she hated him. Even on the rare occasions when his words somehow couldn't control her, he could take over her body at anytime and make her do his bidding. He whispered promises to her, telling her he'd keep her safe from all who would dare touch his Milliarde. At the age of 5, Magnus almost had Milliarde kill a girl for pushing her. Milliarde would have succeeded if one of the adults hadn't intervened. At age 6 she broke the arm of a boy who held her hand to help her through a crowded hallway. A few months later, she strangled a girl for calling her names. It was becoming obvious to the adults in the collective that Milliarde was having issues. Some adults believed her when she said it was the voice in her head, others scoffed and claimed she was just making up excuses. Regardless, all the adults agreed that she was dangerous to the other children and kept a close eye on her.
As Milliarde grew older, she began to realize how big a problem Magnus was and became fearful that he would continue to hurt anyone who got close to her. The adults couldn't watch her at all times, and as she grew, so too did her physical strength. She became a coward, running from people and jumping at every sound. She would interact with people as little as possible. Milliarde took up archery, one of the few types of weapons that didn't require her to be near people and people wouldn't ask her to spar with them. It became her hobby, one of the few that Magnus actually agreed upon.
At age 12, Milliarde was released from the collective, only having made it through because of her questionable durability. Magnus insisted that Milliarde not join the military, which she had to obey. She instead was sent to Wesethir where she began work in a factory. This job was soon ditched as Milliarde had too many opportunities to try and hurt herself. Magnus pushed her to work in the agriculture business, where she used her strength to help plow fields, clear rocks, and chop wood. Five years passed with constant labor, and constant tries at suicide. Magnus grew weary of his shared life with Milliarde, and decided it was finally time to act. He convinced Milliarde to leave everything behind and return to Calitra, where they may be able to find a way to separate.
Milliarde - Bow and Arrow
Magnus - Short Sword and Shield
-Leather boots and gloves
-Metal armguard for her left arm (the buckler can easily snap onto the armor)
-A quiver attached to her belt from the back
-A short sword with sheath on her back
-A buckler on her back, covering the short sword and used for defense against back attacks
-Feather headband which Milliarde uses to test wind speed and direction.
-Coward Shot = Milliarde naturally shakes when she's shooting her bow, so she has learned to compensate quickly. She can shoot accurately even when she is moving or something else is.
-Two Minds Are Greater Than One = Because Milliarde's mind is already occupied by Magnus, it is very difficult for anyone to use mind control on her. Also, if someone tries to read her thoughts, Magnus will talk over them.
-Guardian Spirit = When Milliarde is close to death, Magnus will take over her body. Her body will quickly repair itself once during battle, and for the rest of the fight, Magnus will fight in her stead. He fights using a small buckler on his right arm and a short sword in his left hand.
-Magnus' Will = If Magnus wills it, Milliarde will probably do it. It is difficult for her to resist him.
-Don't Touch Me! = Due to her fear of contact, when anyone, friend or foe, gets too close to her, her guard is dropped and for that moment, she is easier to hit.
-Death's Sweet Release = Milliarde wouldn't mind dying, so she will put herself in harm's way on purpose at times, or will let herself get hurt.
