Full Name: Rithys Zhalfyr [Rii-this Zul-fur]
Alias: Rii by his parents, otherwise none.
Kingdom: Rithys has both Arcadian and Luxarian blood, though he was born in the former.
Birthday: Desembre 13
Elemental Affinity: None
Psionic School: Resonance
Small change, or none at all.
Items on Hand:
A first-aid kit containing medicinal cream to prevent scarring, various herbs and antidotes for common poisons and other miscellaneous healing equipment that can provide what his psionic school of Resonance cannot.
Rithys wields a Naginata, which is basically a curved blade mounted on a spear shaft. The blade itself is made of simple steel and measures at three-feet. When combined with the bamboo shaft, the entire weapon stretches up to a lengthy distance of eight-feet. Due to it's excellent balance and reach, Rithys adopted a fighting style that involves swinging the weapon in large arcs, covering as much distance as possible on one attack.
His psionic school of Resonance allows him to control human body-structures at will; something which is a part of his fighting style. The range of his powers extends up to the weapon's tip; and wherever his weapon strikes, he is able to forcibly rip the scar open further, making each of his swings extremely deadly.
Aspirations: To not falter in his decisions and to wield enough power to make sure he never has to.
Current Occupation: Rithys is a member of the Shirokami pirate crew who doesn't have an actual position, but doubles as a healer and an offensive crew member should the need arise.
Home: The Houkoukaze, which is piloted by Mako Sarizuko.
Rithys' Luxarian heritage is evident from the characteristic silver-white hair that he has which is parted from the center in the front and sprays out in a mess as it travels along his head. Though his hair is apparently unkempt, the rest of his face is pretty well taken-care of. Rithys is clean-shaven and no abnormalities mark his facial features whatsoever. His irises are narrow and grayish-black, with eyebrows are slanted inwards, giving him a determined and focused look.
Rithys has a build that is pretty much standard for a person who wields a medium-to-light weapon. Toned but not overly muscular, he stands at a height of 6'2; a great asset to his fighting style which emphasizes reach. Though not particularly quick, his movements are fluid and balanced, a trait which he had picked up while learning how to use the Naginata.
Clothing: Favoring clothing that is both light and loose, Rithys' attire consists of a white, loose-sleeved shirt with a pair of gray bell-bottomed slacks that match his eyes and allow him to move around with no restrictions. He finds armor of any sort too cumbersome to wear, and leaves his entire defense to his belief in his ability to keep the distance between himself and his enemies during battle. Rithys' hands are exposed with no covering whatsoever, and wears light leather shoes on his feet that are flexible yet sturdy.
Rithys is the type of person who can, under no circumstances, be convinced of anything that isn't what he wants to do or what he believes in. This causes people to dub him as uncooperative or just plain stubborn, something which he does not mind in particular. After all, the opinions of others hardly matter to him, as his own judgement is the only thing that he trusts.
That's not to say that Rithys is cold and reclusive, though. He is perfectly fine with sharing his views with others as well as listening to what others have to say, although whether he takes it into account is a different story altogether. Rithys is entirely capable of light-hearted speech, as long as whatever conversation he's engaged in has nothing to do with people forcing their beliefs onto him or anything along those lines. His manner of conversing with people does stretch to being cynical and mocking, though he doesn't irrationally wish ill upon others. Also, he isn't afraid of voicing his discontent with people or the situations that he finds himself in.
Creating bonds with other people is something that he does not mind doing, although he is able to cut those bonds should he be required to do so. In that respect, he would be what you'd consider as selfish, and it's not something that Rithys would deny either. Of course, he doesn't openly express this behavioral pattern of his, but he believes that in the end, the only one that he'd have complete confidence in is himself; and is prepared to throw everything that he has amassed so far and to start afresh to further his strength and his goals. Perhaps the only people who he'd never cut himself away from would be his family, seeing as they raised him from birth.
Likes: What Rithys likes most in his life would be learning new things, as knowledge is something that he requires to continue living the way he does. In addition, being allowed to do whatever he likes is something that he finds absolutely imperative. Fortunately for him, life aboard the Houkoukaze grants both of those things, allowing him to travel the world to experience different things as well as giving him all the freedom which he requires.
Dislikes: Rithys despises people who try to press their beliefs onto others, as he thinks them to be irritating and not worth his time. He also dislikes being bogged down by responsibility, as it hinders his ability to do as he'd like and creates unnecessary trouble if he decides to abandon them for his own sake.
Talents: Rithys has a great capacity for learning. He is able to grasp concepts quickly; something which allowed him to pick up psionics despite being just half-Luxarian. He has mastered his psionic school to the point where closing or opening wounds would be nothing but second nature to him. Also, as mentioned before, Rithys' greatest asset would probably be his unwavering spirit and confidence in his own abilities, as well as never stopping to second-guess himself.
Inabilities: Trusting other people with his life is something that Rithys was never be able to do, something that he resolved never to do for the rest of it. Also, being headstrong as well as stubborn, he has trouble seeing a situation from another point of view once he's decided his own; something which has resulted in unnecessary conflicts several times before. Lastly, Rithys has an uncanny ability for getting lost. His sense of direction is absolutely horrid, which is also the reason why he belongs to a crew instead of being a captain of his own.
Fears: As most of Rithys' life revolves around strengthening himself to stay alive, naturally what frightens him the most would be the aspect of death. His life is, above all, the most precious thing to him and losing it is a thought that he cannot even fathom. Captivity is also something that Rithys is fearful of, as losing his freedom and losing his life are more or less the same thing to him.
Alaethen [Father - Age 55, Luxarian]
Elaine [Mother - Age 53, Arcadian]
Rithys went through what you would call a perfectly normal childhood. His family provided for him the best they could, sending him to a school and after he graduated at the age of sixteen, to an academy that focused on developing would-be Psions; the place where he spent the next three years of his life. During his three-year stay in the academy, Rithys managed to attain his own psionic abilities. More specifically, the field of Resonance. This marked the start of the shift in his personality from a regular, down-to-earth person to what he is at the present time. Being able to heal his own injuries made Rithys independent and self-reliant, developing a personality that made him dislike going to other people for help. This resulted in him deciding to learn how to use a weapon for self-defense in his spare time.
He initially trained by himself using a home-made weapon: a simple wooden pole with a knife securely tied to the end of it. After a year of practice, he developed his own style of fighting which complemented his build as well as his abilities and was confident enough to wield an actual weapon. Using his savings which he had acquired from his parents as well as miscellaneous jobs that he was doing, he purchased for himself a Naginata. At the same time, he was honing his psionic abilities at the academy, and after some theory and experimentation, managed to incorporate Resonance into his fighting style.
At the age of nineteen, the event which had the most impact on his life took place. On the thirteenth day of Decembre, the academy found itself under attack from unknown sources. The building was set on fire, and the students in the school were slaughtered by masked assailants indiscriminately. Fortunately, Rithys managed to escape from the scene with only minor wounds due to his weapon-training, while the rest of his classmates perished in the event.
It was after this incident that Rithys resolved that he would never in his life rely on somebody else for his own safety. After all, it was only due to his own abilities that he survived the massacre, while the rest of them in the academy who knew nothing but the psionics which the school had taught them were dead. He decided to find a way to improve himself by experiencing the rest of the world, and opportunity knocked when he found out that a small pirate crew was looking for more members to join.
He got the approval from his parents after spending a long time convincing them that it was the best for him, and promised to keep in contact with them as well as to send them money at regular intervals as they were getting too old to do strenuous work. Rithys was accepted into the crew, and he after a few years of traveling with them and training, is currently one of the most capable fighters on board.
