Just be a parrot zoan and you're the embodiment of pirates ;D And I dunno if you read up on it, but someone in the show actually ate a devil's fruit that turned them into an eastern-style dragon, so I'm sure that's definitely possible. Keep in mind that most Zoan-users can either be in their 'original' form, full-on animal form, or a mix of the two, which would be a humanoid character with dragon-like features, most likely. Although that's totally up to you, and up to the GMs if they allow you to use that idea

@heretostay- 250 pages? I hope that's a typo, otherwise your life is over.

@Perplexity- *hands Devil Fruit cookie over*. First person to catch that. xD

I'd have to talk it over with Raikiri to make sure, but I don't see too much of a problem with allowing a Mythic Zoan with dragon transformation, or as you say 'little dragon'. Kinda reminds me of Momonosuke's Little Dragon Transformation. (link) We can discuss it more in length to see what ideas you might have, but I don't see too big of a problem with it, especially since other RPers might have fairly strong Devil Fruits themselves.

EDIT: What Sir Bastian said.

And yes, you may have a parrot. xD

Mythic Zoan is fair game, but it has to be a really good sign up (which I know you can handle). Pets are fine. So yes, a parrot is acceptable. And yes we know all too well when we were creating female NPCs.

Here's your cookie by the way! *throws cookie*

Grah! 250 pages? Crap. Did I say that? I meant words. 250 words. I do that way too often :p

Another thing, I was wondering if artificial devil fruits are game?

Name: (Typically in One Piece, characters are often introduced as last name first, then first name)

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Epithet/Nickname: (List one, even if your character is a new pirate, as they will gain an epithet later when they get a bounty)

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Personality:

History:

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: (Whether a Devil Fruit user or not, list what abilities/equipment/weapons your character possesses. Try to describe it in some detail, especially if its non-canon.)

Goal/Dream: (Something every character should have. This can be anything that he/she strives for, or something he/she wants to achieve. For example, in One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy wants to become the Pirate King. Roronoa Zoro wants to become the world’s best swordsman. Be creative here!)

Other/Quirks: (In One Piece, almost every character has a strange quirk that is apart of their character, a ‘thing’, if you will. For example, Zoro has his terrible sense of direction. Nami has her love of money. Brook has his bones jokes. Franky has his catchphrase “Super!” and pose. Not required, but recommended.)

@heretostay123- Good question. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be, though since this is an original take to the story, Dr. Vegapunk and company don't exist, so their manufacturing and creation would be somewhat different, something we would be able to introduce ourselves later. Sure they're allowed, as well as any other Devil Fruit you might want to create/make up yourself!

@Perplexity- Alright, you're reserved!

Yeah, sorry I edited that in to my last post too late I guess. Like I said, it would be OK to create your own artificial Devil Fruit, or your own original Devil Fruit, for that matter. In fact, I encourage you to make up your own if you think of any good ideas. Many of the Devil Fruits your are going to see in this RP are ones we made up ourselves.

"Nightmares only exist in your dreams and right in front of you."
Name: Reaper K Leon
Age: 33
Gender:Male

Epithet/Nickname: The White Haired Demon

Appearance:
Spoiler:
No, he never wears a shirt and he stands at 6"6

Personality: Leon is stoic and brash. He speaks with a growl that even a wolf would tremble to. He does not tolerate losing and treats each fight as if it was to the death. He presents himself proudly and powerfully, just standing near him can feel like a challenge. He is devoted to his captain, and becomes protective of his crew. Though he never respects a coward, and will quickly drop his loyalties if he believes his leader to be one. He loved his daughter and wife back home, and will spend nights and free time thinking of the life he could have had.

In a battle Leon is a monster. Civilians are not safe from him, and if the order is not given to specifically save lives, he will not hesitate to kill them if it will further his or his captain's goals. This places him more as a villain, as he will often destroy towns to kill a target or get to a captured comrade. His fighting style is quick and deadly, although he doesn't utilize the effect of his fruit power that steals shadows, he does use his own shadow to switch places with during a fight and also to fight along side him. His sycthe is his main weapon, its main use is to cause fear in the enemy, it is only practical against those much less skilled than him. His katana is used when an enemy proves to be on equal footing. In his mind, if he uses his katana, he is giving his opponent a great honor.


History: Leon was originally a shipbuilder as a teenager and a young adult. He married a woman, and had a small child. He valued life and lived happily until he was 23. During his 23rd birthday, pirates raided his village. They took everything the village had, and attempted to take Leon forcibly as a shipbuilder. He only agreed in order to prevent them from taking his family instead. For four years he worked as a slave on their ship, unable to watch his child grow up. On the fourth year, the crew came upon a very valuable treasure. The Kage Kage no Mi had been pillaged from a naval ship, and the captain held a celebration in order to initiate himself. The party was cut short as they were attacked by two other naval ships. They were fired upon and boarded, and in the commotion, his captain was defeated and arrested. Leon was able to escape with the fruit, his life, and a small life boat.

His life after that was rough. He had become so hungry that he eventually consumed the fruit, and gained its abilities. He spent two years searching for a pirate crew who would take him in, with hopes that one day he would be able to return to his village. When he found one and made his way back, his wife had remarried and his child had forgotten him. Devastated, he decided to become a pirate permanently. The crew that had ferried him to his home island did not agree to his method of killing anyone that got in his way, and promptly released him from their crew.

Over the years leading up to this day, he has been with three other pirate ships, the first abandoned because his captain was considered cowardly, and the final one was completely killed by the very same captain who took him from his family years ago. The captain of this ship was only 19 years old, and had convinced him to join because he had come to the aid of a civilian during a bar scene. The kid was a brave boy who had a somewhat similar past to his own, a family taken by pirates. The rest of the crew were as loyal as Leon was to the boy, and they sailed the seas, careless and free. Leon never asked the kid what his goal was, and the kid never asked him what his was. Life had become comfortable again until they were slaughtered in an ambush. His old captain had been sprung from prison and had spent years tracking down Leon for stealing his fruit.

"The only reason I am leaving you alive." The man said, "Is because I know your life is more painful than any afterlife I could send you to." With these words, the captain had taken Leon's life again. He was left in a lifeboat to float for days with minimal food.


Leon knows the captain will search for The One Piece, and he will follow. His lifeboat has drifted to Louguetown and he is looking for a captain and food.

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: Kage Kage no Mi, also uses a scythe and a katana.

Goal/Dream: To be the most feared man on the seas and to kill the captain that took his life.

Other/Quirks: -Favortie food is bread
-His last name is not his actual last name.
-He dislikes the taste of lobster
-Can build and repair a ship
-Can be on par with a master swordsman (but would eventually lose due to a lack of specializing.)
-Cant cook, tries to cook
-Often speaks without using titles, and can be very blunt.

Current Bounty: 40,000,000 (He is the oldest member on the ship so far, his bounty would be naturally high)
-Murder -Destruction of Property
-Arson -Thievery
-Piracy -Excessive Loitering

@heretostay- Alright, sounds good.

@Khawill- Thanks for making the changes we asked. You're accepted! Welcome to the RP! I'll add your character into the character database.

Keep in mind that Raikiri and I will be updating the database regularly as new characters are introduced, or as new information is found out about already-introduced characters. This will happen more often during the IC.

Trying to come up with some kind of quirk for your character can actually be really hard. I don't know why, but everything I think of just seems kind of foamed in.

@Sir Bastian- Yeah, tell me about it! I had trouble myself finding a good quirk as well. It's obviously not required, but it completes the One Piece experience, imo.

Here's some ideas of some I just thought of: Zoro, Sanji and Luffy all have a quirk focusing on one particular thing (swordsmen, women, meat). Maybe something your character particularly dislikes or likes? Like food, a certain word? Maybe he/she picked up something that they consider normal along their lives that really isn't, like sleeping with your feet on the pillow, or eating bananas with the peel on? Maybe they make a face whenever someone says a certain word, or has mood swings that adjust depending on the weather? Just a few ideas I just thought of right now. Hope it gets you started!

Sorry about how long this is taking, I have been having a bit of trouble finding time to write the history out but I'm going to make a start now and try to have it finished tonight.

@Khawill - Excessive loitering? That's brilliant xD

Also, I'm thinking of adding in that Skellen has a tendency to talk to his plants/assorted poisonous animals.

Edit: My SU is finished now. Let me know if there's anything I need to do.

Looks good to me, gimmepie! If SV gives the okay, you are fine by me, but we will probably discuss it to be safe. We'll let you know what's up ASAP.

Keep it up guys! Just a few more and we can start.

@gimmepie- I agree with Raikiri. The SU is great, you're accepted! I'll add your character to the database. Good progress so far, guys! We'll probably be able to start when we get around 4 good sign ups, but we'll keep it open to more who want to be apart of the RP.

So, here we go. I'm a One Piece noob, self admitted even! I'm done as it stands now. Let me know if anything needs changing or tweaking. Thanks! <3
Name: Zane, Zoe

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Epithet/Nickname: Skydiver (Mostly just Sky for short.)

Appearance:
Spoiler:
Human form: Height is 5'3, very petite
Spoiler:

Dragon form: Height is 7'0.
Spoiler:


Personality: Feisty, spunky and naive, Zoe is the perfect human embodiment of a volatile substance. Ready to blow at any moment and bubbling with excitement, she was often nicknamed “Powder Keg” as a child. Being relatively young as such careers go, Zoe is rash, daring and often times, careless. She’s constantly biting off more than she can chew and that goes for both sets of her mouths.

Of course, nobody can be defined by such few words. While yes, she is all those things and more, Zoe is kind, and often times a bit soft for a pirate. She likes to have a strict code: “Only steal from those who can afford to lose it.” In her mind, if you’ve got too much, then some of it ought to be hers. It is this moral code that she thinks separates her from the rest.

When not in public, or around her prized parrot, Jabbers, a whole different side comes out. While she plays hard, she also crashes hard. Wound up from a busy day of keeping up appearances, she will curl up and go practically comatose for hours on end in her bunk. Many a people could regal others with stories of her rambunctious sleep talking that could be heard through walls. Some say this is when people really see her spunkiness shine.

Above maybe all things, she is ambitious. While she can follow the lead of a respectable Captain, she one day longs to call the shots for a crew of her own. Adventurous to a fault, there’s not a speck on the map that she doesn’t want to explore and chart one day on her own. Once she’s made up her mind, there’s a good chance she’s going to follow through and most likely, be successful.

While not the sharpest tool in the shed academically, she is far from stupid and gets by more on street smarts and ‘beat on it until it works mentality’.

All in all, she’s fun, carefree and more than willing to drink a man under the table if she is given the chance. Maybe her greatest weakness is also her greater desire, respect. She yearns for it and almost craves it. Respect is everything to her and if she doesn’t have it, you might as well clip her wings.

History: Born and raised in Loguetown, Zoe always thought of herself as having a close tie to the pirate world. Never having much Belly to her name, her physical belly was always quite empty. Her parents did the best they could of course, working long hours, trying to make every piece of food stretch, but they just couldn’t keep up.

Eventually, when she was about five, her mother left her father and ran off with a much wealthier man. Zoe saw how much this affected her father and how it stabbed at his heart. Many say you can’t remember things from so far back, but Zoe begs to differ. What started out as a bad situation got even worse. Food once scant but consistent, now practically vanished. Malnourished and increasingly unhealthy, she was rescued and cursed at the same time. Two kind women of some religious order convinced her father to let them take her away. They did this under the promise of feeding her, teaching her and giving her a job with the lord when she was old enough. To a starving child, this all sounds very good, but there’s still not a day where she doesn't remember the sad look on her father’s face as she was given away. Was it love or regret that caused him to let her go? She still likes to think it was love.

For the longest time, she only knew the world of these religious women. Studying, cleaning and most important of all, eating. Was it lavish? No, certainly not. But from the world she came from, it was heaven, literally and figuratively. Life was good for the first time ever, but lonely. She carried on this way for many years, fully content for what lay ahead of her.

Around fourteen, that all changed. One night, after coming in from her daily chores, she approached the alter to pray and get ready for bed. A soft weeping sound drew her attention to the back of the hall as she prepared to leave. Cautiously opening the door to the back, she found one of the lead men taking advantage of one of her fellow sisters. The girl couldn’t have been more than ten years old at the time. Charging into the room and shoving the man as hard as she could muster, he went flying and knocked his head against the desk, his head cracking instantly and killing him. Looking down at his crumpled body in horror, Zoe couldn’t believe what he had done, or what she herself had in retaliation for the other girl.

Without a moments thought, she ran, as far and as long as she could. She still never knew if they came looking for her since that incident. Of course, the assumption was that somebody had to have been looking, but there were so many children coming in and out, that a scrawny little girl gone missing wouldn’t have been unusual.

Alone and poor, there was little else that an unskilled fourteen year old could turn to. Living on the streets of Loguetown, her father nowhere in sight, she began to learn how to steal and lie her way into getting what she wanted. One particular little thing she loved, was to cheat people at cards and rob them while they were none the wiser. These were all things she picked up from the traveling pirates who visited. They happened to take a shine to her while in port, her spunk winning them over after prolonged exposure.

If wasn’t until one night, about a year ago, making her seventeen, she heard of something she just had to check out. Somebody was bringing in a rare shipment of some kind, she didn’t really know after catching mention of a Devil Fruit. That, she knew about. How couldn’t she? Pirates had been telling her tales and letting secrets slips for as long as she had been around them. These fruit had powers, the power to change lives and give their powers to others. Zoe liked the sound of that in every way imaginable.

Making her move in the twilight hours, she boarded the waiting ship, her small frame helping her hide in the lingering shadows. Quietly making her way down to the hold, and spending nerve-racking minutes picking the lock, she opened the chest and found her prize. Stuffing it in a bag and quickly vanishing once more into the dark, she took it back to a secluded spot and just stared at it for hours. She was afraid, unsure of actually what to do with it. With the name being a fruit and legends she heard, she thought it best to eat it. She did.

It took a while for her to notice what it actually was this particular fruit had gifted her, but it was evident soon enough. Transforming almost against her will, she sprouted an elongated body and a tail, her shape becoming completely unrecognizable. This new body seemed powerful and quick, built for flight and drawn to it. With a magnificent leap and burning passion, she took to the air and unceremoniously crashed instantly.

It took her many days and weeks to master her new body, small as it was for a legendary dragon. Now changing on command, she was determined this was her future; this would be her namesake. Stealing became easy when you could just fly away, her victims screaming after a creature they had no idea what it was. It was this way that she avoided bounties, but also how she lacked reputation. Deciding it was time for that to change, she knew what she had to do. Piracy was the answer, she even bought a parrot to look the part. Everything up until now was small time, if she wanted respect, it was time to earn it.

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: Tatsu Tatsu no Mi [Mythical Zoan Fruit] - This is what allows Zoe to transform in what is considered by many, to be a small Dragon. This dragon [Image in Appearance section] stands just over the height of the average human male, her full transformed height being 7 feet. When transformed, she is agile, capable of flight and manipulates gusts of air with her mouth.

In human form, she uses a light rapier attached to her left hip. She is a passable fencer, certainly not the best. If anything, she’d rather sneak up on a person and stab them in the back. She doesn’t like fair fights.

Goal/Dream: To be the captain of her own ship, sail the entire world and collect a mountain of shiny things to sleep on. Curious that the last one is more pressing when she’s a dragon though….

Other/Quirks: Is a stupidly loud sleep talker, during which she has a tendency to spill secrets. Loves to play cards especially when she’s winning. Is a good cook and enjoys doing so, having learned under the sisters.

Current Bounty: None

FINISHED! if anything is wrong with it please tell me.

Name: Sinbad

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Epithet/Nickname: The Seven Deadly Sins (geddit, Sinbad, SIN bad.)

Appearance + Bounty: SInbad has tan skin and an average build. He has golden eyes and long, purple hair tied back into a ponytail. He wears purple and white robes



Personality: Sinbad is a laid back and fun-loving person. He can be quite a flirt and is not above using his charm to get what he wants. Despite all this, he can be serious when the need arises. Though he does altruistic deeds for other people seemingly without thanks, he secretly does them for his own gain, ulterior motives in a nutshell. Sinbad also has a love for eating new foods no matter what they are made of. He has always been very cunning but since birth he has tried his hardest to earn an honest living.

History: Sinbad was born on a faraway island where his parents were notorious thieves. They taught him that he should aspire to be something great in the world and not follow in his parents ways. As a child he aspired to become a famous pirate and gain enough wealth to buy an island and set up a township there where everyone can live and be happy. At the age of 7 Sinbad's parents and their fellow thieves had been arrested for thievery and lollygagging, the judge sentenced them to death. Sinbad shattered by the news of his parents fate took all the wealth they had left him and bought himself a one way ticket out of the island. Along his journeys he met interesting people with stories to tell, some poor, some rich but they all had a dream some had already accomplished it some hadn't. Sinbad also "purchased" a sword for him to use if the time ever came where he might have to defend himself. At the age of 14 Sinbad had ran into a dead end, no more money left and none of the ships could leave port due to dangerous weather. With a hungry stomach Sinbad decided to shake someone down for money. The person he decided to mug happened to fight back and so Sinbad was left running on a wild chase through the city, before long his pursuer had stopped following him. With one option left Sinbad robbed a bakery for food where the bakery man also fought back and chased him but lucky for Sinbad it began to rain, heavily, the Bakery man fled back to his bakery before anymore children decided to chase him down. Sinbad was left yet again alone after the weather had cleared up he jumped onto the next ship heading anywhere, as a stowaway of course we don't want plot holes. After 3 years of looking for odd jobs to do such as polishing cutlery and whatnot, he found himself in Loguetown where our adventure begins.

Weapon: A generic Scimitar at the moment.

Goal/Dream:

Other/Quirks:
- Likes fire.
- Takes clothes of when he sleeps.
- Will eat anything.

Charges:
-Assault
-Theft of
---Bread
---Sword
---Matches
---Dog food.

@Perplexity- Very interesting character. Raikiri should be fine with her too, so: Accepted! I'll add her into the database. By the way, Devil Fruits typically are named something along the lines of what they're related to, and by repeating the words twice, typically in Japanese. Though no Dragon Zoans were announced in One Piece as of yet, I'm thinking of calling it 'Tatsu Tatsu no Mi', or the Dragon-Dragon Fruit. Let me know if that works for you!

This works out quite well now, as now we technically have a cook and a shipwright for the crew, even if they're not official titles. xD

Though no Dragon Zoans were announced in One Piece as of yet, I'm thinking of calling it 'Tatsu Tatsu no Mi', or the Dragon-Dragon Fruit. Let me know if that works for you!

This works out quite well now, as now we technically have a cook and a shipwright for the crew, even if they're not official titles. xD
Works for me! Thanks for accepting me, this looks like fun. <3

@gimmepie- Oh yeah, that's right! So that means really a good portion of the usual positions are filled up, except maybe navigator, but I like the group we're coming up with so far!

The rest of you get those SUs up as soon as you can!

Hayden Vance | Loguetown


Name: Hayden Vance

Age: 22

Gender: Male

Epithet/Nickname: The Viper

Appearance:

( Whenever he goes into a battle, he smoothes his sleeves down to his wrists and he also enjoys wearing darkish brown gloves to get a better grip on the ropes. )

Personality: Vance is an odd mix of willpower and a devastating ignorance of his, as he sees them ‘Neccesary but boring duties’. He’ll work hard at training and practicing his techniques, or performing a favour for someone, but if another person comes along and mentions something like “Dinner” or “Go fishing” or, heaven forbid, “Party”, it’s as if he completely forgets what he was supposed to do and decides that it can be done at a later time, and that there are more important things to be done with his time.

He does, however, have his limits, and if he knows that someone is entrusting him with something very important, he’ll do what he can to pull through and prove that the trust put in him was well-placed. He’s a cheerful, easily-affected young guy that enjoys relaxing, most likely due to the pressure put on him and the high hopes for him during his childhood, which is a hard thing to cast away and simply forget about. This doesn’t mean he isn’t intelligent, however, as he was actually among the top students of his class, mainly in regards to meteorology and navigation. He simply prefers to take it easy and enjoy himself.

History: Brought up in a kingdom on the Grand Line, Vance had a hard start to his life, as his father, a marine captain, was shifting between being home and working, but his mother was always someone for Vance to lean against, no matter how hard his father pressed him. Even when his father was home, Vance didn’t have it easy, as his father wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a marine himself, especially in the face of the king of pirates, Morris D. Rallo, controlling more and more of the ocean.

About five years ago, however, after Vance had gotten home from his daily training under his father, his mother had disappeared. Several people swore that they had seen pirates take her away, and his father vowed to get revenge on whoever did it, in the name of justice. A few months went by, and when his father arrived back home, he was sad to announce that his mother had disappeared for good. She was most likely dead. This struck Vance very hard, as he loved his mother to bits, and the loss of her hurt him greatly.

To try and make his son forget about the loss of his mother, his father took Vance away from the kingdom, to an island in the north blue to live, partially so he could focus alot more on his training of becoming the best marine captain he could be.

As such, Vance’s recent life has been full of studying, combat training and very little room for stopping to smell the flowers of the rocky, mountainous island he spent the last couple of years living on. Despite the tough training from early on, Vance couldn’t invest himself entirely into the thought of living life as a marine soldier. He’d heard stories about the world outside of his island from his father’s crewmates when they docked in the little harbour of the island, about entire islands partying for days on end, islands of dinosaurs, of eternal snow, of wide-spanning, grassy fields with peculiar, strange animals roaming across it. He respected and loved his father too much to tell him that he didn’t want to be a marine, that he’d much rather be an adventurer, a traveller, so Vance continued his training, getting progressively more strong and clever as he grew up.

Eight days ago, however, Vance received a letter via a seagull. It had a red seal on its front, in the shape of a diamond and as he opened it and saw the handwriting, his eyes widened. It was a letter from his mother. He hadn't even read it yet, but he wanted to give his father the good news, so he hurried inside of the house to tell him the news, but after the man had read through it, he tore it up and threw the pieces into the fireplace, much to Vance’s horror. He placed his hands on his son’s shoulders and stared into his eyes. “Your mother is dead. She’ll never return and this is just some ploy to kill me and you as well. Don’t fall for it, son.”

Vance wasn’t convinced though, and from the information he had gotten in the letter, he knew what he had to do. He gathered his belongings and ‘borrowed’ a few thousand belly and a small boat docked in the little harbour before setting off to Loguetown. He was going to go witness the death of the pirate king’s first mate on his own.

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: Having grown up as the son of a marine man, Vance was trained in the arts of Rokushiki and thus, has learned a few of the techniques. He has full control over Rankyaku, Soru and Shigan and he’s still working on learning to use the remaining ones. Vance usually adapts in his fights, using, usually at least, long lengths of rope to propel himself around the battlefield. Said ropes seemingly just coming from inside his sleeves, possibly wrapped around his arms or torso. He much prefers his hand-to-hand martial arts combat, utilizing a mixture of punches, kicks, chops and the like. His fighting style is seemingly to deliver many smaller blows to wear down his opponent, even if his attacks on their own are still fairly strong.

Goal/Dream: Sailing and seeing the wonders of the world, finding out what happened to his mother and where she is.

Other/Quirks:
Vance is a very decent fighter and could easily hold his own thanks to his early training. However, if there's an opponent he deems too strong for himself or those he's fighting with, or they are planning to fight, he'd prefer a hasty retreat, and, in general, just to avoid fighting if possible.

He adores coffee of all shapes and sizes, but much favors ice coffee and will do quite a lot to get a hold of a glass or a cup of his favourite beverage.

Gambling is also a bit of an addiction of his, as he enjoys the thrill of seeing if he'll have lady luck on his side or not, it doesn't even have to be a big bet, but something needs to be at stake.

Current Bounty: 0

Sir Bastian is accepted! And with that, we have enough to get started. Supervegeta and I will get started on the IC thread. That being said, sign ups will remain open for quite some time as pirate crews are always expanding. So keep them coming.

We will officially start hopefully within the next day or two.

EDIT: Sir Bastian's character has been added to the database as well.

Bass is quite the odd specimen for most people. Being only 16 he is shorter than most adults, coming up only to a grown male’s shoulders. His entire body is covered with a coat of black fur that helps him blend into darkness. His ears are larger and sensitive to noise, especially noises that are high pitched in frequency such as whistles. His nose is flat and allows him to smell where blood is. His eyes are colored a blood red that shine a bit in the light depending on if light hits them or not. His mouth posses rather sharp teeth in order to be able to bite into skin and drink blood.

His upper body is what will usually draw the eyes first. From his shoulders to his elbows his arms look like a normal human’s arms, but from his elbows to his wrists his arms become far smaller until finally the place where his hands should be there are only thumb hooks. Attached along his arms are wings and the wings likewise are attached from his armpits and all the way down to his waist. Due to needing to flap his arms to fly around his chest and biceps are very muscular. His stomach likewise has no traces of body fat on it, mainly due to his diet and his constant need to fly about.

His lower body consists of muscular legs along with feet with four claws on each foot. Three claws are situated in front of his feet while is last claw is position on his heel. The claws are long in order to help him grip onto surfaces whenever he sleeps. Due to his lack of hands he had been forced to use his feet to accomplish a majority of tasks by using his toes. His legs are strong enough to carry a full-grown man up into the air for at a few minutes.

Currently Bass wears a black shirt that has had its side ripped open to allow his wings to pass through. He also wears a pair of black shorts that end at his knees. To complete the look he wears a red cloak with a hood that covers his body.

Personality: Despite becoming the creature he is now, Bass has a kind and often naïve outlook on life. He knows better than most that no one should be judged by their appearance and so Bass often tries to make friends with others even if they are deemed ugly by society. Yet, at the same time he knows he cannot be close to them all the time. Due to the compulsion forced on him by his natural instincts he tries as hard as he can to drink blood from animals only, however with such a practice in mind he will go hungry every so often and thus try to stay away from friends so that he cannot harm them when he enters his blood lust state.

The irony also lies with his blood drinking. Even with good friends he can’t bring himself to tell them that he stoops to drinking blood from others and so he will often come up with a variety of excuses as to why at certain times he has to be alone or why he has to go off somewhere. Whenever the early stages of his blood lust kicks in, he will often fly off without warning until he sates his need.

Due to being young Bass has an eagerness to be helpful in any way. If it would give him a purpose to his life other than constantly running away from the authorities then he’s all for it.

History:Bass wasn’t always the creature he is now, originally he was a simple vampire bat that lived in the forest. Every so often he would feed off of other creatures and that was life. It was simple and he likewise was very simple minded. One day when he exited the cave though he came upon a strange sight. A tree had grown a strange fruit that hung from a branch. As he approached closer he saw that it was larger than other fruit and in fact there was a bird there about to dine on the fruit. He was too ambitious at the moment and flew at the bird while attempting to bit into it.

The bird managed to fly off and Bass’ teeth instead sunk into the fruit. As soon as he tasted it though, a bitterness hit his tongue and for several minutes he tried to work his teeth away from the berry, but only caused more juice to go down his throat. Almost immediately the bat began to change. His whole body grew larger, he gained legs with far sharper claws, and his brain likewise expanded. In an instant language and thoughts entered his mind and he truly thought for the first time in his life.

He awoke later the next day with a keen understanding of who he was, but not why he was like this now. For two days he experimented with his new body and flew around the forest without a care in the world. During that time however he felt rather sick. He had gotten a massive headache and he felt weak to his bones. Finally he blacked out only to awaken near two dead humans who had been drained of their blood.

It was then that it hit him that not only had he grown larger… but his need for blood had grown with him as well. If he tried to stop feeding, he would very well kill others around him to get his blood intake. With that known he adopted a strategy of taking in blood nightly to avoid the repercussions of having no blood. Eventually he heard of a human village nearby and went in to steal some clothes at night.

Unfortunately someone caught sight of him and thus the tale of Midnight began to circulate. Tales sprung up of a beast that flew in the night and swooped down on innocents to drain them of blood, and it didn’t help that his blood lust would start up every so often and force him to land in a human town to satisfy his hunger. He finally decided on simply abandoning this part of the forest and headed for a coast town with the belief that he could find someone there that would be able to find a solution to his dilemma.

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: Hito Hito no Mi: The Hito Hito no Mi turns those that eat it into a human like creatures. Despite the obvious booms of being able to speak and being able to think intelligently, the disadvantage quickly built up. For one, Bass gained the extreme need to drink blood. If he doesn’t drink blood for some time then he enters the stages of what he calls blood lust.

Stage 1: Bass becomes a bit weary. At the beginning this stage can be confused for falling ill from sort of disease. Bass will sleep longer than usual and feel a increased need to drink blood. Happens after 48 hours since his last feeding
Stage 2: Bass will get a light headache and tends to faze out, even while conversing with another. During his sleep he will sleep walk and may fly out to go find a meal. Happens 52 hours since his last feeding.
Stage 3: Bass’s eyes will start to glow a light red. He’ll shake a bit and twitch as well. Often times he can be caught staring at another, more specifically at their neck while licking his lips. He still has enough will power though to keep himself from biting another though. Happens 65 hours since his last feeding.
Stage 4: Bass will fall into a deep sleep, but once he awakens he will no longer be himself. His eyes glow a deep shade of red and he will no longer speak, instead screeching and snarling at potential prey. Feral instincts kick in and he will often hide in darkness, swooping down at any that approach his territory and will latch onto them. Unlike when he is of sane mind, he will not stop feasting until either a) He is full and his hunger is stated or b) his victim is drained of blood at which point he will seek out more victims until his hunger is sated. Happens after 67 hours since his last feeding

After he is filled he will fall asleep and awake a few hours later with a bit of memory loss of the past two hours.

Goal/Dream: To be viewed as a hero rather than a monster. He figures that if he could become a symbol of hope or become a sort of protector then he could live his life far easier.
Other/Quirks: Likes the color red and whenever he comes upon something that is red he will often try his best to get it. Many times if he has no blood to drink on he will chew on the red objects he has to try and relieve his blood lust if but a bit.
Current Bounty: 600,000. Wanted for Assault, Murder, Trespassing. Bounty is treated as for a creature and not as for a sentient being.
