Welp. This next profile has been in the works for quite some time.
Name: Annabeth Cross
Specialization: Chanter, with some questionably Blaster/Banisher backup abilities.
Appearance: The first thing you need to know about Annabeth is simple; She is very, very good at going unnoticed. She isn't invisible, she isn't even stealthy; you just never notice her. She sticks to the outskirts, she sticks to the edges of society, and if she has something to say, chances are she won't. She stands at a roughly average height, perhaps slightly taller than the average student. She has a fairly average build, though it is clear that she is more athletic than the average member of her age group. She has long black hair, almost halfway down her back. Her eyes, normally aimed firmly at the ground, are hazel in color, and she wears the school uniform completely unaltered, though she wears it with the long sleeves present, without exception, no matter how hot it is.
Personality: Annabeth is not outgoing in the slightest. Where others would make an effort at socializing, getting to know someone, she stands at the edge of the crowd, leaving as soon as she gets the chance. "Meek" and "shy" don't seem to cover it, to the point where she seems positively terrified of getting to know someone else. Even in the midst of one of her fits of weakness, she never asks for help, and it seems unlikely that she would know what to do if anyone offered.
Biography: To the school's population, Annabeth's background is completely unknown. Both because she won't talk about it, and because she only just arrived. However, even just after her arrival, theories and questions abound; Why won't she talk to anyone? Why does she occasionally almost collapse? What's wrong with her?
Only the Headmaster knows for sure, and he won't talk. But the truth is far, far worse than the theories. Annabeth was born into a prominent family of Exorcists, one well known for spectacular abilities and competency. But when she was young, something went wrong. Her parents didn't know how, or when, or why, but as soon as she discovered her training, they found that she wasn't alone in her own head. A demonic entity of unknown origin resided within her, and nothing they tried could remove it. At first, it wasn't a major problem. Every now and again, she would be angrier than normal, or an attempt at using an ability would result in a power most certainly not on the side of the angels. But then it got worse. By the age of ten, the entity would take over her body at random, and no amount of resistance would stop it. By eleven, it took over on an almost weekly basis, and it began to manifest its own abilities. Something had to be done.
So they took the most effective course of action that they could. Annabeth's gauntlets, meant to be her weapons, were made her shackles. They aid in keeping the entity locked inside, but at a great cost; Annabeth is prone to fits of weakness, periods that manifest in a multitude of forms, each one of them detrimental. Every time it tries to escape, the gauntlets draws on her own vitality to keep it at bay. After an unknown event, the Crosses, normally known for training their children from home, sent her to the Academy.
Skills/Abilities: Annabeth is a decent Chanter, but it only takes a glance to know that it's not what she was meant to do. Her weaknesses prevent her from making use of her true abilities, but she is clever, and a decent hand to hand combatant, as long as she isn't overtaken by her own weakness. But she was meant to be a Banisher or a Blaster, and it shows. On the rare occasion that she is freed from her metaphorical shackles, she shows an astounding speed and strength, attributes only amplified by her gauntlets' original uses. However, there are two sides to every coin. When the entity takes control, her abilities are much the same, but the reason for them is much more sinister; the entity leeches the strength from those around it to increase its own physical attributes. In a secluded setting, this is deadly; it will draw more and more from each individual to maintain its augmentation. The more people, the less it draws from each. Its increase in strength, however, is not very high; up to one and a half times its own abilities, depending on how much power it draws.
Weapons: Annabeth's only weapons are the gauntlets mounted on her wrist. Slim, they are ornately crafted and of the highest quality. In their normal state, they are a sickly gray, as if all the life has been sucked away from their color. They are meant to keep the demon restrained by restraining Annabeth herself. In this state, they keep her weak and unable to use their true abilities. However, they cannot always succeed. If the restraint is temporarily broken, their gold color will surge back along with Annabeth's strength, and they can be used as they were meant to be. The touch of Annabeth's fist is inherently painful to any creature of demonic origin, but that is not their primary use; through use of two enchantment aided tubes, one forward facing one rear, they can add significant force to a punch or elbow attack, making use of an almost recoil-like effect. When the forward facing one is used, it can manifest almost like a blast of compressed energy, with enough force to make a foe stagger back. If the entity takes over, while these effects are maintained, they take on a malevolent black color.
Weaknesses: Annabeth's gauntlets are her curse. They keep her weak, and she is prone to fits of extreme weakness. Though the symptoms vary, they have been known to render her incapable of standing on her own two feet. Due to this, she is next to useless if the enemy gets close. If her gauntlets' restraints are broken, then she becomes extremely susceptible to a takeover by the entity.
Gender: Unknown, referred to as male
Appearance: When the entity takes over, Annabeth's posture instantly straightens, and her usually meek demeanor vanishes. Though there are few physical signs, it projects an almost palpable aura of something just plain... Wrong, and it draws strength from those around it, slowly making them weaker with each successive moment.
Personality: The entity is almost always silent, working to escape from the inside. But when he makes his presence known... The entity is malevolent, in malevolence's purest form. It causes pain and death with not a second thought, and its very presence feels inherently wrong. No one knows what he is... And a good many people never want to find out.
Biography: The entity appeared under unknown circumstances, slowly gaining more and more of a hold in Annabeth's body, and growing stronger with each passing year. He has been fairly dormant for a while, but it is not expected to last.
Weaknesses: The entity has two primary weaknesses. First of all, it is susceptible to attacks of a holy nature, just like any other demon. Second, it has to draw on the strength of others to fuel its own augmentation. So while a one on one confrontation is riskier for his opponent, it also weakens him; no matter how much energy he tries to leech, it can't compare to his strength when he is around a group.
I apologize for any spelling or grammatical errors, but I wrote this at two in the morning when the majority of the character hit me.(See, Onarax? I bolded the headings. You're welcome.)
