Powers and Abilities
Although for the first few years of his life Kurt was unable to fully tap into his powers until he was gifted his energy stabilization ring (which is not needed anymore), he is still inherently gifted with an unusual mutant ability which allows him to consciously (and subconsciously) internally convert or "change" energy from one form to another. A simple example of this would be Kurt's ability to exponentially increase his physical strength through enhancing his punching strength by increasing the kinetic energy which his body carries during a punch. Other useful ways this is used without him needing would be his invulnerability to be choked out during a battle, able to survive without "external" oxygen instead substituting it with internal energy until such choke hold is released. Theoretically Kurt would be able to change anything about himself by converting/shifting the correct energies within his body to something else.
His mutant ability allows for him to externally manifest his powers outwards creating complex, or simple, constructs if he is able to understand how they work. For example, creating a knife would be simple. However, if Kurt was wanted to create a revolver, he'd have to study such item prior to being able to manifest it. His manifestations are from pure inner energy. Once they have fulfilled their required purpose, they would be reabsorbed back into his body sustaining his energy levels. His constructs are able to take the form of anything. Water. Fire. Metal and even wood, the only limit is his understanding and imagination.
His body is able to produce a low level forcefield which acts like a secondary skin. Coating him from head to toe in this field of energy which only stems off of his skin by a millimeter. The forcefield however is not perpetually enabled, only coming into activation once his body subconsciously senses his adrenal glands (responsible for the creation of adrenalin) secretion of the hormone adrenaline during periods of danger, or combat. The forcefield also revokes the need to have any oxygen supply going into his cells, instead of "real" oxygen his body can convert energy from elsewhere inside his body into a synthetic version of oxygen, rendering suffocation impossible, also meaning he can stay underwater for an extended amount of time without needing to actually have any breathing apparatus. His body sometimes (rarely) has the unusual ability to defend his person without cognitive thought, if the ocular areas of his brain are triggered (even before cognitive awareness) by for example a bullet coming in from a gunshot, his body may send out an electrical pulse from his eyes to shoot such bullet out of the air.
Due to his energy conversion abilities Kurt is always readily able to heal himself in times of need yet sometimes revokes this ability due to not wanting to give it away, or to conserve energy. By converting ambient inner energy into the required cells he can instantaneously regenerate (in theory) anything on his body, be this healing from a simple wound to growing back an entire hand. However he is unaware what the upper limit is.
Kurt was not always the iconic Gothic Archer he is now. Many months ago, deep in the heart of Gothic's urban jungle, after he had lost his energy stabilization ring, he was patrolling the streets, trying to be a hero without actually having powers. Recklessly confronting some criminals trying to subdue them only using his (a the time) worthless skills, he was defeated and nearly shot, luckily, a heroic man named Assault saved him from the thugs showcasing his almighty archers abilities. Kurt was left in awe, requesting to be trained by the man, he underwent a few weeks of tiresome training which shaped him into the archer he is now. Assault was not an easy mentor, always pushing him to go further and further, showing him to how instinctively fire a bow as though it was a part of you, all of this prior to Kurt even being able to manifest himself his own bow and arrow.
Habitually preferring to use a manifested bow and arrow instead of standards guns or other weaponry due his time training with assault, Kurt can create a physical version of a simple yet deadly recurve bow. This bow does not have a default drawing strength nor does it have a default FPS shooting speed, the bow and the arrows associated are all dependent on Kurt's current state of mind and his objective/intention upon firing the arrows. He can create arrows strong enough to act like a car hitting you at over 250MPH or an arrow soft enough to be hardly noticed (by changing the destiny/velocity of such arrows). The arrows are almost unbreakable due to the fact they are all manifestations of his own mental state, if broken however they would simply vanish. The arrows are not fixed to being normal, standard straight arrows, rather as soon as they are manifested Kurt has 100% control over the arrow before, and during flight, for example he may fire a single arrow into the air above an enemy, moments prior to a connection, the arrow may explode into a plethora of smaller arrows raining down upon an enemy. He could fire one arrow, and upon departure from the bow it turns into a triad of arrows.
Pressure Arrows: These Trion arrows rapidly envelop the target in a specialized, spacial isolating field, specifically separating the enveloped target from the Earth's atmospheric pressure. As a result, the liquid that consists of seventy percent of the contents in the human body fails to remain in its liquid state, causing exponential expansion until the formation of water vapor. This violently causing severe internal swelling throughout the body, painfully swelling said target to approximately twice their body size.The swelling however, is insufficient to burst the skin.
The absence of the Earth's pressure in this specific field possesses additional effects. The lack of pressure causes the oxygen in the bloodstream to reverse-dissolve and escape from the blood causing hypoxia, rendering the cardiovascular system useless, and no oxygen would be delivered to the muscles and vital organs.The lack of pressure affects the nitrogen in the body as well. It causes nitrogen bubbles to form throughout the circulatory system, leading to excruciating joint pain, blockages in the arteries and veins, strokes and seizures by bubble formation in the brain, and heart failure should a bubble form in the heart. Difficulty in maintaining blood pressure would be an existent dilemma as well.
The final effect due to the lowered pressure is the lowering of the boiling point for bodily fluids because the lower the pressure in an environment, the lower the boiling point will be for any liquid in said environment. The nonexistent pressure enables easier movement for molecules, requiring less thermal energy to transform the molecules of a liquid into a less dense gas. Due the complete absence of pressure within the momentarily materialized field, theoretically the boiling point for of a target's own blood would drop to the same as the standard human body temperature causing fluids to boil.
This onyx colored bracelet was gifted to Kurt by Andres Knightfall during a visit to Kamelot. It is able to atomically strengthen all items of clothing which somebody is wearing. The purpose of this item is to avert any clothing sustaining damage during combat, specifically given to Kurt to help prevent his items of clothing become burned when his fire abilities are enacted. This also acts as a small resistance to stabbing and gunshots, some knife attacks may merely bounce off of his hardened clothing and some bullets may graze, instead of penetrate him.
Kurt's Paragon Ring (His Power stabilization device) was an item crafted by the Supreme Chancellor enabling Kurt to fully utilize his abilities. In the past, Kurt was only able to use his powers when wearing the ring. It is said the ring stabilizes and boosts everything which the wearer possesses. A normal human would be temporarily boosted to their peak levels until the ring ran out of energy. Even the though ring was originally crafted to stabilize Kurt's powers, to this day, it is still able to exponentially increase his abilities for a short amount of time being tiring him out. He rarely wears it anymore due to being able to control his own powers. But still keeps it attached to his neck via a metal chain....Just in case.
