I have been approved. So start submitting your character bios to join.
Race: 3/4 Human, 1/4 Hyporia-jin
Fighting Style(s): Ju-jistu, Tae-Kwon-Do, Judo, Kickboxing, Brawling
Appearance: Samual stands at a somewhat intimidating six feet, three inches; weighs two hundred thirty pounds, has hair the deepest shades of crimson; eyes the brightest shades of gray; and an athletic-muscular build.
Gi: Samual usually can be seen wearing a blank, black, long-sleeve tee-shirt, a pair of jean that are as black as midnight, a black leather belt, a long, narrow peice of black fabric he uses as a make-shift headband, a pair of black, fingerless fighting gloves, and a pair of black Rebook tennis shoes. But on some occasions, he can be seen wearing a deep bloody crimson martial artists uniform over a blank, black, long-sleeve tee-shirt, a black martial artists belt, a peice of long, narrow, black fabric he uses as a make-shift headband, a pair of black, fingerless fighting gloves, and a pair of hardened black boots with red trim.
Aliases: Mostly, he goes by the name of Sam, but he has been also called "The Angel of Death" by people with evil intention who survived his fury, and he has been called "Wandering Justice" by those he has helped and saved.
Weapon(s): Silent Rage- A mighty double-edged kitania with a 2 meter blade composed of a nearly indestructible titanium-platimun alloy that shines with a silverish black color in sunlight and glows with a whitish color in moonlight. The hilt is composed of the same alloy as the blade in the form of a dragon's head and neck. It's sheath is made of pure mahogany with a clear protective layer of the titanium-platinum alloy, making it as nearly indestructible as the sword. "Silent Rage" was Sam's first weapon, which he forged himself, and is one of his favorites because of it's light weight, shear versatility, and the fact that it has gotten him out of many difficult situations.
Melee- A mighty long sword with a 2 meter blade composed of the same nearly indestructible titanium-platinum alloy as "Silent Rage". Like "Silent Rage", it shines with a silverish black color in sunlight, but unlike "Silent Rage", it glows with a deep blueish color in moonlight. The hilt is composed of the same alloy as the blade in the form of a dragon's head and neck. It's sheath is made of pure mahogany, and has a clear protective layer of the titanium-platinum alloy. "Melee" is Sam's secondary weapon, which, again, he forged himself. "Melee" is every bit as light and versatile as "Silent Rage" and has gotten him out of more difficult situations as "Silent Rage".
Ascendtions: Sam can exist in one of three forms:
Normal: Sam's primary form in terms of speed, power, and dexterity, and it is also considered the weakest form of a Hyporia-jin. His appearance in this sage can be seen in the section entitled "Appearance".
"The Rage": Sam's ascendtion from the "Quazi-Rage" stage. His hair lengthens and stands on end as it becomes fully silver, his eyes become a deep crimson, his muscles slightly bulge, and his aura becomes a silverish-black. Because Sam isn't completely Hyporia-jin, he has no second personality. his power, speed, and dexterity increase to double of his normal power, and his rage increases as well.
"The Fury": Sam's final form, and his ascendtion from the "Rage" stage. His hair spikes up more intensly as his muscles reduce in size, and his aura becomes a black color. His power, speed, and dexterity increase to triple of his normal power, but his rage dramaticly decrease, as if he were in the normal stage.
Biography: Born to a middle-class family in the Ohio Valley, Samual was the second child out of three children. Never complaining much and always caring about friends and family were his strong points, but this was what people also reticuled him for until the end of his junior year in high school. And having gone to five schools in the thirteen years of his manditory schooling only added fuel to the fire that was reticule. But somehow, he had managed to make a few close friends.
Then, unfortunately, something happened on Samual's fifteenth birthday that would eternally shatter his soul and haunt him for years to come. His family had been caught in a terrorist attack in the Mall in Robinson while they were shopping for Sam's gift. His parents, his sister, and 200 other people wer killed in the explosion. But, to bring a liitle hope to the situation, his brother, Josh, was saved by a good sameritan, who was also killed. This tradegy sent Samual's life in a whole new direction. He disciplined his mind; mastered Ju-jistu, Tae-Kwon-Do, and Brawlling; and learned how to tap into his ki. He also had mastered a transformation that morphed his body. His hair gained a silverish tinge, his eyes became crimson, his aura became silver, and his power increased exponentially. He named this new form "The Evolution".
Unfit for military service because of his flatfootedness, he ventures across the U.S. to re-unite himself with his brother after six, long years, and to prevent others from experiencing the same type of loss. With his kitania, Silent Rage, and his long sword, Melee, he combats evil where ever he goes, making allies, such as Spike, and enemies on his journey. Unfortunately, it was too late to re-unite with his brother after Joshua was killed by a pack of wild, rabid dogs in the Ohio Valley ironically. Now his only mission is to fight evil to avenge his fallen loved ones.
Code of Honor: While engaged in the middle of battle, Sam follows this strict code of conduct he created for himself:
-Protect all innocents that happen to be in thbe area of a battle.
-Avoid killing until it is the only option that remains.
-Fight with honor.
-Fight to your fullest potential.
-Fight without fear.
Family History: Although Sam is almost completely human, he also has the genetic code of an alien race called the Hyporia-jins. And, oddly enough, he shares a couple of chromosomes with the Hyporia-jin known as Spike. Sam, in actuallity, is the 3rd cousin that Spike never knew he had. This would explain Sam's ability to ascend to another level. This does not explain, however, why Sam does not tap into "The Rage" which all Hyporia-jins have. Although, "The Rage could have evolved in a way that a second personallity is not produce when one first experiences it, hence the name "The Evolution".
Training Area: Sam trains, and lives, in the house his parents rented, and the landlord lets him live there without paying for rent and utilities, givin that he keeps the property in order.
The training area is on the ground floor, the living area is on the second floor, and the supply room/wash room is in the basement. The training area has two rooms: a 20 foot by 20 foot weight room, and a 30 foot by 30 foot practice fighting arena. The living area also consists of 2 rooms: a 25 foot by 25 foot main living area, and a 15 foot by 12 foot bathroom.
In the main living area, there is a 27 inch TV in one corner, with a Playstation 2 with accessories and games, and a collection of assorted DVD's; in another corner is the CD player with a collection of CD's; in the corner between the CD player and TV, there is a full size bed, with a coffee table and red recliner; and finally, by the wall opposite the bed and CD Player, there is a refridgerator, with freezer, porciline counter tops, a stove, and a kitchen sink.
In the weight room, there is a weight lifting bench with weights of all weights, and about half a dozen punching bags, who's weights are all different. And, finally, the practice fighting arena is the only room in the house with Hyporia-jin technology: an ultra sophisicated computer projects tangable holograms which act as Sam's opponents.
Sam's training schedule begins with a 15 minute full-body stretch to prevent straining and cramping. This is followed by a 30 minuet meditation period in the practice fighting arena to maximize Sam's focus and poise. Then come a 90 minute period in the weight room, mostly to test out hand-to-hand combos on the punching bags, but he also uses the weight bench to maintain and increase his strength. Next, for about a period of 90 minutes, he's in the practice fighting arena again to fight holographic opponents. Finally, he finishes with a 15 minute full-body stretch to loosen his tensed-up muscles.
Other info: When Sam's not fighting evil, he watches Kevin Smith movies, Monty Python's Flying Circus, playing Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter on his Playstation 2, and eating fried fish.
Attacks: Flaming Sword Vortex- his sword(s) become encased in a sheath of swirling blue flames.
Ki Burst: A ball of intensely bright ki energy that not only damages it's target, it also emits a infinitely bright flash of light that blinds everyone, with the exception of Samual, within a 2 mile radius.
Flaming Ki Beam- Samual outreaches both hands. A ball of red ki energy forms in his hand, and a ball of blue flames forms in the left hand. Then, he combines both above his head to form a ball of flaming purple ki energy in front of his right palm. Next, he places his right arm back infront of him, fully extended, while his left hand is placed under the bottom of the heel of his right hand so it looks like the end pose for the Kame-Ha-Me-Ha wave. Finally, the ball becomes a beam that follows the target's body heat until it hits the target, or collides with something else. Out of all of Samual's attacks, this is one of his most potent attacks, and one of his favorites.
Flame Cage: Samual rolls up into the fetal position while encased in a dome of ki energy enveloped in a sphere of blue flames.
