Well I know I have let the "update journals every week" thing slip, I just have had a lot of stuff to do and school is a bit of grind.

But now it is update time!:

I have a general outline for my round one prologue and a few I ideas for my round one submission. My opponent is the artist and writer :iconmatthewonart: and his OCs Anya and Vurr. As this is a no kill round I'm going to have be a bit more creative.

I'm starting to work on my piece of art for this round. I have also done quite a bot of doodling and an update for Shiruba's outfit these will be out soon (I'm gonna do the uncolored versions first).

Its been a while, and for those who know me, I procrastinate a lot. And, now I gonna change that. I'm now in an OCT called the "Devil's Shadow" OCT, and the judging for the auditions to get in, is happening right now. I really want to be able to get far in it, and to even win it would be amazing. I'm up against some great artists and though I don't do digital art, I'm hoping my writing will really shine as I will put a lot of effort in to each entry. I am also planing to do an piece of art work for each round and a journal entry every week to give updates to you guys and as well a reminder for myself. So, if you guys can give any advice on my writing or art (be gentle please), please your support would be be appreciated.

In case you haven't seen my ref or my audition.

This is my reference for my character Shirubā of the Devils Shadow OCT.
If you have any questions please send me a message and feel free to comment!


Name: Shirubā

Title: The Wild Fox, Dancing Silver Star, Demon Slayer

Age: 22 (Spent about 1000 years in the time lock)

Sex: Female

Species: Half-blood Brillix (Half human, half Brillix)
NOTE: Brillix are an anthropometric race the originates form the Outlands. 

Height: About 5'9” or 1.8 meters

Weight: 142 lb. or 64.9 kilograms

Eye appearance: while both her eyes have a silver ring around the pupil, her left eye has a gold color and her right eye is a deep blue.

Hair appearance: Her long raven black hair reaches her lower back and is with silver streaks. Her tail is black like her hair with the tip being sliver. Her ears are also black and are on the top of her head.

Appearance: She is young, fair, and beautiful though she does not like to show it off. She has trained her body well and is a capable warrior. She also does not appear very Japanese as she takes more from her father’s side. She prefers to wear bright clothes and cloth shoes.

POB: Japan (The beginning of the feudal period)

Personality: At first she is cautious and distrustful of everyone she meets, she has a more negative view of people because of how she was treated for part of her life. She has a kind spirit, and loves to be around others and loves growing things and nature. She also loves music and at most times can’t help but dance to it, even if she feels embarrassed afterwards. She very nervous around beautiful women she often compares herself to them. She really does not have a sexual side, and if often embarrassed by the mention of such things.  Once she gets to know someone she will have a better trust in them. She uses her “Spirit Sight” (She will know/see if someone has a dark/evil soul, but will at times find people who have good intentions and a good heart) on about everyone she meets. SHE ABSOLUTELY HATES MEN (age 14-90), their greed, their ambitions, their pride, and men as a whole.  She has never met a man with whom she “Feels” is good. She also has a fiery nature whenever she is angry or in combat she will often be very blunt, saying whatever is on her mind without thinking. She also cannot stand by and watch someone get attacked or die if they don’t deserve it, she will even help men on rare occasion. She believes that not all humans are evil or killers, she just has a hard time trusting them.

Fears: She is deathly afraid of being truly alone (i.e. with nothing and no one around her). She hates the idea of being helpless, is scared of the idea that if she fails she will have no purpose.

She fears that the lives she has taken will come back to haunt her. Her most personal fear is that she will never find someone she can love and feel safe around.


Strengths: Excellent swordsmen, skilled magic user, great stamina and mobility, is loyal to the friends and allies, has no lust for power, can heal herself (See “Edge of Twilight”), can see the condition of souls of people. She is not weak minded and quick to learn. She has spent a lot of her life in the wilderness and knows how to survive there, she has excellent hearing(Because of her big fox ears), has a large mana or energy pool  for magic.

Weakness: Despite that she has trained her small figure leaves her lacking brute strength, does not know any kind of defensive magic (i.e. magic barriers, healing magic), armor only protects mid-section and right shoulder, becomes bolder and more aggressive around demons, will  never trust a demon or dark creature, does not trust men and is wary around women. Can only, speak, read, and write in Japanese and Outlander, loud and high pitched sounds can cause pain and disorientation, if disarmed she loses pretty much all her defense and offense, as well the ability to use powerful spells, magic is limited without the "The Silver Lantern"(see Abilities/magic ) .

Extra: She is an herbalist, she knows origami, carries around a small flute and can play it pretty well, hates raw fish(Its weird, I know), has a good sense of smell, is spiritually sensitive(can feel the presence of powerful spirits).

 

Abilities/magic:

Spirit sight: This ability is triggered when Shirubā wants to see someone’s soul. First, her iris will turn silver and the world will gray out (only for her). Then the targets soul is revealed along with any other entity living inside them, their soul will show their true nature.

Magic (Fire, lighting, Illusory)

She can use moderate spells without the “Sliver Lantern”, and for more powerful spells she needs to be activity channeling through the “Sliver Lantern”.

Her illusory magic is used to confuse and disorient opponent, most illusions are based on her memories and will give feedback to their targets, like an illusion of a bird will create noise and provide some physical contact if collided with.

She uses hand signs to cast and channel magic, unless she is holding the
"The Silver Lantern" in which case these hand signs are not needed. For large or powerful spells she would use "The Silver Lantern" otherwise these spells are physically taxing to use and will use an excessive amount of mana/energy.

 

Weapons:

Seraph’s Feather: *pictured in the lower left* A katana that is about four and a half feet long and its handle is wrapped in this red leather with smooth gold accents as to not hinder the user’s hands. This magic blade can only hold its solid form for about 9 minutes, it can stay in the solid form for a longer period of time if it “drinks” blood of an enemy. If the power that holds the blade together fades, it will break into pieces that will float and assume a loose form of the blade. If Shirubā wishes to use the blade again, she must return it to the scabbard and wait around 30 minutes to use it again.

NOTE: When this blade is thrust through the “Sliver Lantern” it will be infused with holy power (The blade will shine brightly) and able to slay powerful demons or evil creatures, this effect only last a few moments.

The Silver Star: *pictured top left* This armor piercing blade can be used with one or two hands, is comprised of four curved blades that house the “Sliver Lantern” (The lantern can be removed) that form a solid weapon. At the end of the blades a super hardened piercing tip resides. This tip can be fired off quickly as a projectile to pierce heavy defenses or to kill an opponent, but this technique can only be used if the weapon is charged with magic from the “Sliver Lantern” if the lantern is removed the tip cannot be fired. After the weapon fires the tip will return to the end of blade and will go through just about anything to get there.

Edge of Twilight: *pictured bottom right* This enchanted dagger is not normally used to kill, but to heal many kinds of injuries, both life threatening and minor. This dagger can only heal an injury if it is inserted or placed  there, meaning the user has to willing stab themselves to heal more internal injuries and slide the blade across cuts to seal them. The blade is coated in an antibacterial gel that is held in the sheath of the blade.
NOTE: This blade has a limited amount of healing magic and must be recharged by doing a special ritual every dusk or twilight, It has enough magic to heal a few serous wounds and will only have tiny bit of magic after that.

The Silver Lantern: *Pictured inside the “The Silver Star” * This sacred object is four curved rings of a strange sliver colored metal (The metal is far more durable than sliver), with a white flame at the center. This flame grows when Shirubā removes it from the “The Silver Star” and it functions as a catalyst for her magic, allowing her to cast more powerful spells with ease and will supply mana or energy for the more powerful spell. The magic contained within the "The Silver Lantern" cannot be removed. This sacred object can be used in conjunction with “Seraph’s Feather” and “The Silver Star” to make these weapons more powerful as seen above.

History: She is the descendent of an unspoken of clan of men and women who were known as powerful warriors and used great and terrible magic that defied the gods, they were also known to make powerful as well as beautiful magic swords. The clan openly showed that they had close relationships with the Kitsune, as several of their people had attributes of these spirits. This clan name was erased form history but they were known to declare no allegiance to any power or leader, besides their god. Their village was high in the mountains could only be found if one had the blood of the clan. Their arrogance lead many powerful warlords to join to destroy them in the name of their gods in a war hidden from history. This secret war lead to the almost total annihilation of the clan only a few members survived by disguising themselves with magic to fit into the local populace or hiding on the mountains. This clan was secretly made up of Outlanders (humans from another world) that had been sent to earth to fulfill a mission.

Bio: She is the child of the father who was a Brillix and her mother who was a human. For a time she and her family lived happily in their village, her father (disguised) worked for the blacksmith and her mother would weave. Then one day a terrible demon attacked the village and begin to kill or devourer anyone he found, and her father could not stand by and watch people die. He ran to his house for his special blade and charm, then he shed his disguise which sealed his concealed and killed the demon with a bright blade. But, he had been seen by the villagers and for the safety of the village, he and his family were banished to the mountains. So He, his wife, Shirubā, and his father and mother left.  For years they lived undisturbed in the mountains by others not counting the blind blacksmith that somehow came with them. The blind man lived separate from them in a small house a ways back in the forest. The family always welcomed the old man, and again for a while they were happy.

     Until one day six years after they had left a warlord attacked the village demanding to know where the kitsune swordsman was, after he got the information he ordered everyone in the village be killed.  After the deed was done he lead his army (around 300 men) up the mountains, only to fall into many deadly magic traps laid to convince people to turn back. When the warlord reached the home of Shirubā’s family he had his warriors (now around 89 terrified men) surround it and try and burn it down, to find the house would not burn, it was protected by some sort of magic. So he sent his men in to the house and told them to kill everyone, after they entered, screams were heard their screams. Apparently one villager who was a friend of Shirubā’s family, managed to escape the slaughter at the village to warn them. In the end Shirubā’s father was slain after he had many terrible wounds and had killed the warlord his blade was shattered, only around 15 of the warlord’s men were left. They rallied to slay the rest of Shirubā’s family, six of them fell as they tried to kill the grandparents and five more to the mother, and their ferocity was said they fought like demons. Soon, only 16 year old Shirubā was left terrified and panicked, she was never trained to kill and ran to her father’s blade praying that “The Father” would give her strength. The remaining men charged her yelling “Die, demon!!” In that moment she realized how evil men could be, her family had done nothing wrong, but yet they killed them. Her as thoughts became clear, the broken sword she was holding reformed into its solid form, she remembered how her father had kill those men and copied his stance. She killed two of the men before they pinned her down and were about to rape her when one of them burst into blue flames and the other was fried to blackened crisp by lighting. The old blind man stood some distance away his arms shaking and tears running down his cheeks as he screamed “DAMN YOU, YOU KILLED MY FAMILY!” Then he noticed Shirubā lying on the ground injured and sobbing, he ran over to her and with surprising strength lifted her and carried her back to his house and tended to her wounds.

    No one ever did enter those mountains again. As the old man watched over and took care of Shirubā for a month, who was close to death from her injuries. The old man revealed that he was the last head of the unspoken clan and was supposed to watch over them so the clan could reform. For a while all the old man did was cry and mourn, then as if given a new purpose he began to train Shirubā in combat, magic, and a special power called “Spirit Sight”. For the next four years they trained to fight and kill men, demons and other monsters, and on the forth terrible anniversary of her family’s murder, she was given the last artifacts of her family and clan. Her father’s magic sword, a special blade that was a symbol of the old clan and within it there was her father’s charm, and finally the most powerful remaining artifact a strange and unassuming dagger. On that day the old man passed away in his sleep, and Shirubā set out to find her destiny. For a time she disguised herself as priest so she could hunt down and exorcise demons and at times even hunt bandits. Until one day she heard a witch was attacking a village and saying the name “Shirubā”, and went to investigate. This is where her story begins.

l really love drawing, though I have a lot to learn. Also , yes I am a furry, but I DO NOT dress up in those freaky costumes and I HATE it when people think all furrys do that. I try and practice love and understanding...but there's some things I don't tolerate.

I am a writer and proud of it, but also a bit of a hopeless romantic . I love all kinds of fiction and history i read with a passion and to many an over active imagination. Also I love Halo/Mass Effect. Several artists have inspire me, but for now I am enticed in Twokinds
