Strifes Blackthorn
"Start a business, mind your own."

The Biography

Birth Name: Strifes Blackthorn
Aliases: Crimson-Eyed Serpent, The Frozen King
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Birth Date: June 9 (As told by Strifes)
Class: Otherworldly

As if carved from marble by the Gods of Greek lore, Strifes's physical build is like a picture of perfection. He stands 6'3 and weighs 215lbs of solid well-toned muscle. His skin tone is white though slightly tanned, showing he is no stranger to being outdoors. He has broad shoulders which only adds to his regal bearing and attitude; his posture only simply exudes this. His eye brows are a little bushy and always look make him look as angry, which most times isn't the case. His voices is deep and commanding, making it an easy one to remember if heard or recognize if heard.

The most noticeable characteristic of Strifes is his eye color. His eyes are best described as looking like garnets and always have a mischievous yet relaxed look about them. In the light it almost appears as if they are luminescent. His teeth are perfectly white and his canine teeth are noticeably more pointed than the average person, giving him an feral almost wolfish look when he grins. His hair color is black and is shoulder length, slighter longer than it was in his youth.  Strifes has no particular preference for a style, so for the most part it simply varies day to day.

He has a few minor scars on his body from incidents in his youth. What stands out the most is his large tattoo that spans from his chest, over both shoulders and halfway down his back. On both sides is a Japanese dragon, one black with white eyes the other white with black eyes. The two heads meet face to face on Strifes's chest. The black dragon's face is seen snarling as if ready to attack, while the white dragon's face appears calm and composed. Their long bodies go over the shoulders and travel down his back, both bodies never crossing as they create an "S" shaped pattern with the tails of both stopping at the center of the back; completely parallel to each other and mirroring each others pattern. The tattoos is meant to serve as a balance, similar to the yin and yang concept. On his right arm, spanning from shoulder to elbow is the name "Strifes" the S being on the shoulder drawn in old English letters, while the other letters are in standard print. On his left hand is the symbol of the Blackthorn.

Strifes is a man who prefers to make appropriate first impression. Thus, his attire alone speaks just as much about himself as his actions does. His favorite color is black, which is pretty much the standard for all his clothing in terms of color. He prefers the more formal type of clothing as he will almost always wear a all black short-sleeved button up, fitting perfectly to his build; not to snug but not to baggy. The buttons on said shirt are a dark red, matching Strifes's garnet colored eyes.  Under this, should he decide to leave the button up unbuttoned, he wears an all black t-shirt that fits more snug than than button-up and smaller in size. Should the need ever arise, he will also wear a black short-sleeved leather jacket. On the leather jackets left arm, is his headband which is stitched on. The fit is much more loose than the rest of his attire and the jacket's length actually reaches down to the knee area. The jacket has no outside pockets, instead only have two large inside pockets. The jacket itself, despite being leather, is fairly light and is loose enough to easily slip out of if the need arises.

Due to his lack of interest of being flashy, jewelry and such, the only noticeable accessory he has are his black leather gloves. The length of said gloves stop a few inches past the wrist and are durable enough to be worn even in fights. Though the leather is only slightly padded, it serves a more psychological purpose. With the slight padding, Strifes never feels the need to not commit to his punches. The little padding gives him the notion that his knuckles are protected from any major recoil from his punches. For example, if punching someone in the mouth. Strifes's concern of cutting his own hand on teeth decreases since his gloves will off some form of protection (Again its more psychological than actual protection like actual fighting gloves would grant. The gloves can still rip as easily as normal leather does.)

Maintaining his formal appearance, Strifes wears black dress pants. The pants are a perfect fit being not to baggy, but fitting to his size allowing room to deliver wide kicks and maneuverability without ripping the pants. However, it is hard to notice this fact by simply looking at said pants. To the untrained eye the pants look as if they restrict movements, which sometimes grants the element of surprise. Though his pants fit well enough to do without, Strifes still wears a typical black leather belt mostly for looks than actual need. His socks are black and reach just above the ankles. What perhaps stands out most in the outfit is Strifes's footwear. Rather than traditional patent leather shoes, his shoes are more like a boots and dress shoe hybrid. Smaller than your typical boots, but larger than traditional dress shoes, the shoes grant good maneuverability while maintaining the formal appearance.

Strifes prefers to not wear headgear, simply out of personal preference. As stated previously, he doesn't like to wear jewelry and has no piercings.

Calm and calculating is the best thing that describes Strifes. He rarely loses his cool at all as he feels panicking only leads to more mistakes and problems. He lives by the philosophy that one should let his actions speak for him so he never speaks just to hear himself talk. He says what he feels on a particular subject only if the person he is speaking to is showing interest. Often times he may just keep his thoughts to himself unless it is asked for. He is very comfortable in his own mind so being alone doesn't affect him in the least and sometimes he may even seek solitude away from people. He will never get into a fight if he can avoid it as he finds such things tiring and a waste of energy and time. He is a deep thinker and very articulate, though he hates talking for no reason he does enjoy actually having a sensible conversation especially if he is trying to learn more about a particular subject. In fact he enjoys learning new things as a whole and has a excellent memory for these things as he rarely writes down what he learns. He is always intrigued about ancient civilizations or old figure heads that had once plague the seas. He is most at home surrounded by books and people with the thirst for knowledge that matches his own.

Strifes isn't exactly the definition of loyalty as he has his own wants that he plans to see come into fruition. He isn't so cold blooded to turn a blind eye to someone mugging a lady or some other heinous crime. But for the most part is apathetic about others personal problems unless solving said issue will benefit Strifes in some way. He does have one annoying tenancy of playing mind games with people, for example he may tell you the truth about something but will be incredibly vague about the answer just to piss you off. However times when he does is so far and in between each other it isn't that noticeable when he does do this. Strifes is a tad bit a neat freak as he hates a lot of disorder and chaos thus making him instantly dislike anyone who starts to much ruckus, especially when he is working. This being another thing that may get a rise out of him as he will not hesitate to snap at someone who is being to loud and/or disturbing him from what he is doing.

Strifes is very charismatic when it comes to dealing with people if he needs to. Even though he prefers solitude over a large crowd he knows how to put on a good front to make himself appear more friendly if it means getting what he needs. When in a good mood he can be good friend in terms of conversation and those who get close enough to him can find that he isn't as cold as he lets on, though few ever try. Though he is more loyal to himself than anything else, he will show some compassion for the few he does actually like.

The Background


Far to the north where few living dare to go, was said to be a domain ruled by an evil ice witch. It is believed that she had sold her soul to a demon in order to live forever. The power she wielded was like none that ever lived, able to command glaciers of ice as if it were pebbles in a pond. Many a kingdom rose up against her, marching on her icy lands and ravaging all in their path. When they finally arrived to her crystal castle, she unleashed her full power on the armies. Thus the legend of the Ice Witch was born.

It is only natural that power attracts power, which is perhaps the reason why John Blackthorn had walked the path that hundreds of thousands had once walked only to never return. When he arrived to the frozen crystal castle, he was met with the full wraith of the ice witch. The battle raged for hours, but the which found herself dealing with a creature she did not expect. The results of this meeting, this battle, would be another child of Blackthorn. However, the moment was short lived when hunters had found their way north as well. Blackthorn vanished not long after learning this news, but this mattered little to the ice witch. Once again more had come to challenge her within her domain, breaking the one law of her realm. Never step within it.

The ensuing battle would hardly have been a difficult task, however, the birth of her child Strifes Blackthorn had left her weakened. Though she won the battle, she was mortally wounded. She willed herself back to her child and stood over him. The look in her eyes was more demonic than human, she chanted a few words and collapsed to the floor. The child was left alone. Until a second unit of hunters arrived and stumbled upon the child. The child was taken and immediately brought to the hunters base of operations nearest to the north. Almost immediately they knew him as a child of Blackthorn and were ready to execute him on the spot. Others figured it poetic justice if the boy was taught to hunt his own kind, since he was a baby he would only know this life.

Finally the latter was decided on and Strifes Blackthorn, whom they called Ragna, was said to be raised a weapon for the hunters. Once he was of age, Strifes training began as a hunter. However, he could never get the hang of the more traditional styles the hunters preferred. Strifes would always mix up his practices and styles due to his desire to be unpredictable. Even in battle, his tactics would prove to be so unnatural that many would not know how to deal with his move, let alone the next. By the time he was 16 he was a full fledged hunter, however, shortly after an event would transpire that would bring rise to the man known as Crimson-Eyed Serpent.

With his first mission coming soon, Strifes was eager to prove himself. When he woke that next morning he proceeded in the slaughter of every hunter in the outpost. For the first time he wielded ice and like a demon out of hell. As the ground stained red in the outpost, Strifes looked on without an ounce of pity. The hunters did not know that this was to be the final act of the ice witch. In her last moments she imparted all he would need to know about himself, who his father was, and who had dared to take her life. All had come to him in a dream and when he awoke, his mother had given him all of her power in order to avenge her.

Only one escaped the carnage that day, though when more hunters came to respond to this attack they found nothing. Only the decaying flesh of their fallen comrades and snow stained with blood.

Strifes returned to his mother's realm and found her body still present on the floor. He cursed the hunters even more for not having the decency to even bury her. He took it upon himself and did the honors, encasing her in a coffin of ice and burying it deep in a glacier.

For a hundreds of years, Strifes waged a single man war on the hunters. He became a blight to all that called themselves his enemies, enemies of the Blackthorn. His wraith growing so much that hunters and others simply abandoned the icy north. Strifes from then all was self-titled "The Frozen King". It wasn't until his mother came to him a final time, this time telling him to seek out the other Blackthorn. Only then would he find the power needed to bury the entire world under his cold reign. Thus his hunt for his family began.

Okay, very nice app!

Your B ranked Ice abilities are too weak, haha.

The gauntlets only apply absolute zero? I mean, you're making touch weapons around only your hands and feet, so they should enhance the absolute zero, maybe making them coat whatever they strike in a layer of ice near instantly.

The ice shards should be around as fast as bullets if you can only make 3 at a time, or you can make more and keep your arrow speed.

Your senses need an actual range(because out to a certain point, you lose clarity of your senses at C rank.

Your item, while only making an aura of cold, should only be at water's freezing point at C rank, and you should note that it takes a few moments to fully freeze water around them.
