Lyntael is the Navi residing in Rogan's PET. Her name is in the Latin mode, and thus pronounced 'Lin-Tile'. Originally programmed by Rogan's brother, she resembles a young girl with a physical appearance of maybe sixteen at most, though she is slightly built even for that, making her apparent visual age drift a bit lower. Barely five feet tall, her hair is short and rough-cut, a light flaxen blonde above skin that is pale enough to blend with the tone well. Her eyes are a bright emerald green, just like Rogan's, and are wont to dance and sparkle merrily when she is happy.
Stuck on the border of burgeoning puberty, without tipping over into full adult-hood, Lyntael retains a slightly boyish figure that is athletic and toned. She wears a light vest that is a pastel yellow with comfortably broad shoulder straps and which ends high, just below where her breasts, if she had any notable endowment to speak of, would be. Sadly, as far as Lyntael is concerned, her chest is underwhelming, a light early-pubescent swell that is enough to notice, but not enough to require any more restraint that the vest itself provides. The open front of the vest is secured by a series of three leather button ties, evenly spaced across where her breasts would otherwise risk expose. One visible irony is that the ties and catches are graded, as though to allow for more support and room as she grows and fills out, though in reality it is unlikely that she ever will, and they will always remain at their tightest.
The high cut of her vest reveals her entire midriff, exposing a small stud piercing on her belly button, in a bright-smiling sunburst icon. Beneath that she wears a short skirt, pleated like a school-girl and in a deeper yellow colour than her top. It comes only down as far as her mid thighs, but in most cases seems to maintain something of an almost gravity-defying determination to protect her modesty. On the occasions when it fails in this task, she could originally have been seen to be wearing a virtually transparent pair of predominantly lace underwear that seems to do less of a job covering her than the valiant efforts of her skirt. The questionable undergarment has since been replaced in her default outfit by a more sensible, simple, pale yellow cotton pair that are plain and completely covering.
Lastly, when Lyntael was given to Rogan, she was wearing a pair of simple but sensible trainers, however, upon discovering that her PET had been given into the care of another, she promptly, and rather gleefully, cast them off, socks and all, and they haven't been seen since.
Lyntael's emblem is a small visible disc that sits only very slightly raised from her skin, about where one would expect a necklace or pendant to rest if it were worn. Its symbol is a yellow sunburst, overlayed with a white lightning bolt, vertically.
Lyntael was not really conceived of, and doesn't think of herself as, a combat-oriented Navi. She's friendly and always eager to meet, greet and make friends with new people, and while she is competitive and likes to push herself to be the best she can, she's also not fond of conflict and direct fighting. She has a very pronounced sensation of what she feels is right and wrong, and a strong will to stay true to that. As a result she has often, recently, been left nervous and uncomfortable by some of the work Rogan himself has done, and now utilises her, and her PET for. Regardless of this, she bears an overpoweringly loyal devotion to Rogan, and whether she came with that, or has simply grown enamoured with him in the time they've been together is hard to say. The result is that she is usually willing to put herself out and be pulled well out of her comfort zone for his sake, and to do as he tells her, even when doing so upsets her or makes her feel uncomfortable.
Like most young girls, when she is upset or sad, Lyntael's personal body language becomes more hesitant and closed, and she tends to stop making proper eye-contact with anyone. Her hair, usually springy, also becomes more languid, the rough edges lying down and hanging over her forehead.
There is very little that makes her genuinely angry; her disposition is of the kind to remain sunny in most cases and to look every to the brightest possible interpretation of any situation, however, repeated difficulty with a task she feels she ought to be able to complete or succeed at can lead her to grow increasingly frustrated with it. This is most notably visible when she becomes caught between her own ethics and Rogan's requirements of her: begin given a task that she is uncomfortable with, and doesn't wish to do, but still feels compelled to do her best at, for Rogan, will quickly drive her to frustrated anger if she struggles with it.
Perhaps as a result of not being programmed with combat foremost in mind, Lyntael has no visible buster. When she thinks about it, though, she feels a slight charged tingling around her wrists and hands, as well as about her ankles and feet. If she charges this sensation more, static and lightning will begin to crackle about the striking points of her hands and feet. The truth is that this is, in fact, her buster and how it works; its discharge can be made in totality through any of the four contact points, but it has no range whatsoever and can only be effectively used in melee strikes. Another difficulty with this is the manner in which her matrix charges her buster; if any of her four limbs are rendered non-functional or otherwise locked out of her control, this hampers her ability to charge up her buster almost completely, as all four points are required by her matrix to charge safely.
(OOC, her buster functions exactly like a regular buster, with the differences just rp-cosmetic, except that it is restricted to melee-only range, and, in rp cases, if for any reason any of her arms and or legs are out of action, her buster is restricted to simple shots, with no charging safely possible, excepting cases of sheer desperation, which can override this safety lockout, and which may well lead to disastrous results for her)
The more she has been forced into battle, the more Lyntael has learned about how her body responds to it. In particular, the way in which her electrical energy cycles leads to a peculiar issue that continues to hamper her effectiveness in battle. The more heavily she expends her natural charge, the more fiercely it rebuilds within her, soon outstripping her normal comfort zones, and this in turn can be relieved temporarily by further expending of her charge; this is a dangerously concentric circle, of course. If it grows too much for her, Lyntael will progressively lose cohesive ability to function normally in battle. As she grows stronger, and more accustomed to the effect, her limits will increase.
((This is a cosmetic effect, for Role-Play purposes. While it will determine what sorts of things Lyntael can and cannot do, and the manner in which she attempts them, it has no actual effect on her ability or statistics, in hard mechanical terms. That said, I intend to play it honestly and true, so, if it reaches a point of hampering her ability or capacity to function, expect that I will accept and impose that penalty on myself when taking action... and penalty it is: there is no 'positive' side to this effect, for Lyntael. Her limit is treated as her level number, and various signatures will cause differing amounts of charge build, or cool down, as well as her buster usage also causing build up.))
Overcharge Effect Listing
Rp Overcharge Effect:
Basic: Expend, +0,
Half-Charged: Expend, +2,
Full Charge: Expend, +3
The expending of her charge in raw form, by way of her limited Buster has a variable impact upon her Overcharge, and is further impacted by the individual situation and emotional strains Lyntael herself is under at the time. Lyntael's capacity for managing her charge is growing, and she isn't as drained, relatively speaking, by the natural expenditures of her strikes, even though they continue to grow in strength. Too much will still cause her problems, however, and even smaller strikes contain enough power to stimulate her charge.
Quote ('My Pain is Real')
Multi-Stage: (On Set: Self-Slow2), Counter(When Hit): 40Elec, Knockback, Nova3
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +1 On Set, +2 On Trigger
Description: The counter-wave of electricity that bursts out from Lyntael as a natural body response to being struck or injured. The potency of the recoil continues to grow, but even though she is getting more adept at dealing with this, and even holding it back at times, the overall drain that the explosion causes has equally grown more draining on her when it does occur. The sensation of excess charge burning beneath her skin is an uncomfortable distraction that hampers her reactions, and both the priming of the reaction and the expulsion of it cause her charge to react.
Quote ('And Lingers After')
Multi-Stage: (On Set: Self-Slow1), Counter(When Hit): 30Elec, Knockback, Nova2
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +1 On Set, +1 On Trigger
Description: The recoil from Lyntael's counter-wave of electricity leaves smaller aftershocks in its wake now, less pronounced than the primary instinctive reaction, but equally automatic and difficult for her to suppress. Further hits after the initial recoil will generally bring about these lesser bursts if she continues to suffer blows.
Quote ('My Heart Falters')
80Elec Barrier, Buster Charge, Off-Target1
Rp Overcharge Effect: Cool Off, -2 on Activation
Description: The static barrier that forms when Lyntael is frightened or desperate for safety. It remains one of the most common ways that her body and natural instincts seek to defend themselves. Lyntael is comfortable enough now with how this defence mechanism works and feels that she can, in most cases, summon it at will if she tries to. Repeated practice has taught her to make progressively stronger and stronger fields, while not over-extending the diffusion effect that the shell works with her strikers to stabilise her internal charge.
Quote ('And Beats Anew')
50Elec Barrier, Buster Charge, Off-Target1
Rp Overcharge Effect: Cool Off, -1 on Activation
Description: Though there is some delay in Lyntael's capability to reform this barrier, it remains her most trusted go-to, and she can often recall it, or a weaker version of the field at least, in panic moments before the normal amount of energy has fully rebuilt itself.
Quote ('My Fear Rejected')
30Elec, Knockback, Spread2, Break, Shot-Type, Charge Burner1
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +3 On Activation
Description: The close quarters expenditure that marks the odd dichotomy of Lyntael attempting to use abilities she fears, to prevent or dispel other fears that she has. Lyntael still fears the electricity that makes up a part of her essence, and fears being overcome by it, as well as the pain and discomfort it causes her when her charge builds up too much. She also fears being touched, or being in close contact from other beings, while simultaneously craving affectionate contact. She fears hurting people she cares for, but is terrified of being hurt or worse by the close contact of others. When this conflict comes to the fore, the expenditure of electricity that she releases forms as a forceful, shattering pulse of light and energy that ripples out from the main target she wishes to get away from herself. It tends to contain more physically damaging force that most of her expenditures, but relatively low actual electrical charge.
Quote ('My Thoughts Collected')
30Elec, Knockback, Spread2, Impact, Shot-Type, Charge Burner1
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +3 On Activation
Description: As with her other weaker static pulses, borne of Lyntael's conflicts over fighting and the desire to get hostile forces away from her, this variant in concussive in nature, more apt for tearing apart or displacing fields and other energy constructions.
Quote ('My Anger Directed')
Take Aim, 180Elec, Knockback, Break, Impact, Slashing Shot-type, Charge-Burner 2
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +6 On Activation
Description: The most dangerous manifestation of her charge continues to grow in strength has Lyntael's own limits increase. The effect is still primarily driven by extremes of anger or indignation, resulting in a powerful and destructive bolt of raw electrical current. Its effects on Lyntael are still equally disastrous, though she has more experience with this type of expenditure now than she once had. It remains beyond her capabilities to summon at will, and attempts to do so when she isn't already extremely worked up continue to result in failure and frustration. When instinct, desperation and a deal of excess charge align, however, this bolt dazzles the surrounding area with its ferocity and seems quite unexpected to be coming from such a quiet and timid person.
Quote ('As I Look To The Sky')
40Elec Knockback, Nova4, Homing, Shot-type, Charge-Burner 2
Rp Overcharge Effect: Expend, +6 On Activation
Description: Often, when conflict has gotten Lyntael over her head, she struggles to manage the amount of excess charge that builds up in her body, and continues to build faster and faster the longer a fight goes on. At times, she is stymied for any real way to release that energy, and this final bursting explosion of sparks is the result of a build up that she can hold onto no longer. Without any control, Lyntael's body is left to the mercy of her charge for several second as a mass of arcing bolts of lightning escape her form in every direction, striking out at anything and everything around her viciously. The bolts generally leave the girl drained and collapsing, but any that fail to find a target in the initial explosion continue to zap erratically about the field seeking conductive bodies to ground themselves on.
Quote ('A Manifest Spirit')
Passive: 15Elec, Nova2
Rp Overcharge Effect: Cool Off, -1 Each turn that it is in effect.
Description: The stabilising pulse of electrical fall-off that is her body's first recourse for balancing out an excess of electrical charge. Lyntael's fear of hurting anyone who touches her remains, despite a few important positive interactions here and there. She continues to fight hard to suppress this natural effect most of the time, and keep her skin as safe as possible. In combat, and situations where she can allow it to pulse, however, this has held back its growth, and her ability to self-stabilise through this consistent pulsing has not improved as much as her other abilities and reactions.
