The Emerald Archer
Internationally regarded as one of the globes most skilled archers, Kurt Pendragon is capable of using his bow and arrow in ways which seem impossible. Shots which baffle crowds and stun even the most intelligent scientists as his emerald arrows bypass the laws of physics time and time again without him seemingly breaking a sweat. Extensively trained and experienced in the antiqued ability of archery, the Gothic Knight is not only a peerless, superlative shot, his entire physiology through his abilities has slowly adapted to using the bow and arrow in the way a mind would create strong and stronger neurological pathways, this is through his internal energy shifting abilities slowly crafting each nerve, tendon, and muscle within his body to respond to wielding the bow was surgical care. This is a power which grants him monumental control and precise dealings with the arrows. In theory he could take a single look upon a target, close his eyes, and allow his body to instinctively fire shots and land with flawless accuracy. All in all, lending the Emerald Archer to be one of the most skilled and revered archers of the modern age.
Bow, arrows, and other equipment...
The Gothic Knight doesn't actually need to carry a bow and arrow, his inherent energy conjuration and construction abilities allows for a totally constructed bow via thought. Nonetheless, Kurt Pendragon is luckily in possession of an extensive array of arrows gifted to him by Andres Knightfall and Anthony Stark, and due to his lack of intellect in their ways, he is unable to easily construct any arrows which are more potent than simple trion manifestations. Any "trick" or "advanced" arrows are beyond his mental grasp of comprehensions.
His physical arrows include fragmentation, flechette, energy absorption arrows, atmospheric disruption pressure arrows, sonic disruption, electroshock, thermally charged arrows, explosive arrows and even corrosive arrows, among many more. His bow is capable of discharging arrows at speeds far surpassing sound and entering hyper-sonic. Due to being mentally constructed, it has zero draw back weight, and can be fired almost instantly as ethereal arrows are manifested onto the string.
Using the (liquid) Beta-Trion internally stored within his bow to construct himself a fully operational bionic arm to replace his organic one, the Gothic Knight was able to salvage his arm after it was irreversibly damaged during a short scuffle with Shogunate. The Beta-Trion was initially injected into the damaged arm prior to being connected to a copy of Anthony Stark’s personal AI Horizon. The Artificial Intelligence went about reconstructing the injured limb whilst perfectly calibrating it to his nervous system for full synchronization, enabling Kurt to utilize the arm as he would his organic counterpart.
: The arm in fully made out of the virtually unbreakable substance known as Trion, as durable as Adamantium and has the energy absorption properties of Vibranium rendering the metal almost unequaled in usefulness. The synthetic muscles are able to sustain and exert around 25 tons of brute force whilst providing the Gothic Knight with an almost impenetrable barrier of protection against all caliber of gunshot or knife due to the arms inherent durability. Horizon also used its default programming which Anthony Stark once used on his prototype suits; the arm has multiple inbuilt features which prove to be very advantageous to Kurt’s heroic lifestyle. An inbuilt palm repulsor ray is stored within his palm and can be called upon with a mere thought. It also has the ability to transmit electromagnetic rays to stop bullets within the air, or mimic a crude form of electromagnetic manipulation. The arm also boasts the ability to thermally super-heat itself or discharge electrical currents to incapacitate opponents, or even, electrify the arm whilst punching. The arm’s forearm also contains a compartment which houses a number of items, including (but not limited to) an assortment of medical supplies and a full diagnostic report of Kurt’s vital signs in case he needs a battle report about injuries mid-fight.
Martial Art's Master
The Gothic Knight first started martial arts upon his sixteenth birthday, his brother, Percival, took him to an amateur MMA fighting club and in some ways, saved Kurt's life. He wasn't the fastest nor best learner, but he was disciplined. Growing to be a formidable stand-up fighter against opponents of equal and slightly bigger size, the Gothic Knight had his first real taste of combat. However, all of this was just a lead-up to his latter life when Kurt Pendragon and Percival were stranded within the post apocalyptic country of Venezuela, or rather, Kurt was, Percival abandoned his brother. Alone, and fresh to combat, Kurt survived in the country for around five months and like a true autodidact, taught himself how to fight both armed and unarmed opponents.
Unfortunately he was captured by the anti-human response squads and imprisoned. This, however, only cultivated even more of his fighting spirit. Having to fight within the nasty and gritty prisons of Venezuela day in day out. Upon returning to America his continued experiences within Gothic City and the Ronin's Rest further cultivated the Gothic Knight's innate fighting ability, allowing him to fight fire with fire, and dirtier than even the most villainous foe. He is also lucky enough to have been trained and sparred with some of the worlds best fighters such as Andres Knightfall, Jacob Stark, Abigail Aensland and Cassius Knightfall.
To be written.
While he was falsely imprisoned in Venezuela by the Supreme Chancellor, Kurt had to teach himself many things to survive in such a hostile environment. Many people are unaware that Kurt is one of the worlds most experienced and skilled survivalists, having escaped a heavily guarded mutant prison and subsequently avoided rearrest and evading the Venezuelan army for many months while learning how to track down animals (and sometimes people) and setting up ambushes against enemy troops in preemptive attacks to sustain his survival and escape. He also rallied some other escapees and learnt how to effectively, and quickly, use guerrilla warfare against a highly potent mutant army. His street smarts have also been heightened, having spent much of his later life in Gothic City, and afterwards, the Ronin's Rest, both of these locations cultivating his near-peerless street smarts.
