Marian Irvine and Naga.EXE

Shelving Ellen and Rachna (again) for this pair.

Marian Irvine
Age: 23
Gender: Female

Appearance: Marian comes from the northern reaches of Netopia, and it shows. At 5'9" she is of decent height, with a shapely but slightly chubby body and a large bust. Her hair and skin are both very light, with the former leaning far enough to the pale end of bleach blonde to almost be considered white. She keeps it just short of shoulder-length and messy, not bothering to do anything special with it when she's "just going to wear a hat over it anyway". Her eyes are hazel, with the slightest traces of green. For clothing, Marian dresses to the weather, and for most of her life that has meant being prepared for cold. Her preferred outfit is a simple shirt and pants under a knee-length coat, topped off with a toboggan, padded gloves, and winter boots. In warmer weather she goes for lighter clothes and less layers, but still shies away from anything too revealing or form-fitting.

Personality: Some people would be quick to claim that Marian Irvine is out of her mind. In her defense, Marian would claim that her mind is just the point of origin on a greater mental journey, so she's no stranger to leaving her mind behind but always plans to come back eventually. And there is some truth to what she says. She is a very eccentric person prone to wild ideas and bizarre logic, but she always has enough of a grounding in reality to come back when needed. She's also quite manic. She has trouble staying still, trouble reading and writing despite often wanting to, more trouble sleeping, moves around a lot, and talks a lot. Oh does she talk. Whether it's coming up with elaborate and outlandish stories to explain or excuse odd things she does, coming up with equally outlandish ideas, or just engaging in idle banter, Marian is very vocal. Her attitude sits somewhere between engaging and aggressive, with an extra helping of distracted by thoughts that run at a different speed than her words, an extra helping of colorful language, and a side of her very own brand of eccentricity. When she runs out of things to say in conversation, Marian makes up stories, usually of ridiculous events she claims she was involved in or ideas for things her navi should try. Needless to say, she claims to lead a very interesting life. Sometimes, she actually does.

Marian's energy isn't completely limitless, however, and occasionally she will burn out. And when she burns out, she completely crashes, to the point where she has trouble even sitting up, much less getting out of bed and doing anything.

PET Modifications: Marian's PET was customized to look like a small but dense book, with a snakeskin cover and a title in Yumland script. Most of the features are built into what would be the edges of pages on a normal book. The rest are inside, accessed by opening it to reveal a dual-screen interface operated by a stylus designed to look like a quill.

Gender: Male
Element: Aqua
Subtype: Break

Appearance: Naga's normal appearance is actually heavily compressed from his true form, and instead takes the form of a human male of apparently Yumlandian descent. His skin is heavily tanned, smooth, and usually moist, his eyes are dark green and slanted, and his hair is an even darker green approaching black, chin-length and unkempt. On the whole, his human body designed to look like it has seen very little combat. On the other hand, even in his compressed state, Naga is quite large, standing at a little over seven feet, broad-shouldered, and muscular.

Naga's clothing consists primarily of a large robe, looking a few sizes too big even for how large he is. It falls over his feet with a few inches to spare and only avoids covering his hands by way of the edges of the sleeves being slanted, with the top end coming up to his wrists. The fabric is a soft blue color, with a wave pattern sewn into the entire thing and Oriental dragon imagery on the back, over the shoulders, and over the waist. The robe comes complete with an oversized hood, although Naga rarely wears it. Naga also wears a necklace of shark teeth and a sash to keep his robe secured. He tends to go barefoot, and how he traverses rougher terrain types like this without getting injured is anyone's guess.

In addition, Naga carries with him an aqua-colored crystalline orb, nearly half the size of his head and wreathed in coral. The coral also serves as an anchor for a cord allowing the orb to be warn as a pendant. When used to channel water magic, the image of Naga's navi emblem appears in the center of the orb, consisting of a serpentine figure coiled around a pole and surrounded by waves. The Dragon Orb, as Marian calls it and Naga goes along with, serves as Naga's custom weapon, houses his navi emblem, and also serves as a compression program. His true form is that of an Oriental water dragon much larger than what would ordinarily be capable of being contained in a navi. The Dragon Orb, in addition to containing this through compressing Naga into a human form, allows him to partially transform by loosening the compression. At his current level, however, a full transformation is not possible.

Personality: Naga is nearly perpetually calm and serene. He has never been known to anger or act out without extreme provocation, and even when he does manage to get upset by a frustrating situation, his reaction is usually subdued and fades quickly. His manner of speech Marian compares to a monk trying to spread wisdom, although he usually just says whatever comes to mind and simply often uses convoluted expressions. Even in battle he is not overtly aggressive and fights with little unnecessary movement, preferring to let the water he commands act for him.

He does have a breaking point, however, brought on by time and continual stress and provocation. When this breaking point is reached Naga doesn't just snap. He explodes, and visits the wrath of a dragon king on the subject of his ire.

Custom Weapon: Naga's Dragon Orb, which can be used to channel magic-based attacks.

Signature Attacks:
Water Veil [Active, 1TCD]: Naga encases himself in a veil of water, providing a weak and temporary defense against incoming attacks.
20 HP Barrier (20), 20 Total Points

Dragon's Cannon -Low Level- [Active, 1TCD]: Naga partially loosens the compression on his body, encasing him in a thin shell of water in the shape of a water dragon...or at least the head of one. The dragon head launches a single blast of water at a target, damaging and staggering them.
30 Aqua (30) + Knockback (10), 40 total Points

Chip choice: Bubbler
NCP choice: SetSea
Not Shuilong at all. Seriously.

Greco taking on extensive R&D projects is never a very good sign when you're expecting him to mod you. I'm switching back to Rachna for the time being.
The cowardly retreat is approved.
Eidolon muse is taking a nap, these two are coming back out.
Approved. Shelved characters go in the shelf forum, post your signature, etc, etc.
