The Scars of War

“Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.... And that we survived.”

A blog detailing the major scars upon the Emerald Archers body.

  • Thirteen different knife laceration scars located upon his chest, thigh, and back, from his time imprisoned within Venezuela.
  • A single "stab" type scar where a rib from his rib-cage popped out of his torso from being squeezed by the Brahma Bull.
  • During the Comic Vine Vs Anime Vice invasion - Kurt sustained a scar to his right thigh from Kuma when deflecting a knife blow to his chest.
  • A coin-sized puncture scar in his left shoulder when stabbed by Drake.
  • A bullet wound below his right shoulder, shot with a carbonadium laced bullet by Quietus.
  • Hidden from view, underneath his hair on the left side of his head, lies a scar from when Charles hit him with Kratesis' shield.
  • A large X scar in the center of his chest, where Ivana shot an arrow through him.
  • A slash mark cutting across his left forearm, a self-inflicted injury when torturing Jean with his blood.
  • Has two fang marks from where Xandra bit his neck.

And a million I forgot.

Mistress Sangria and The Emerald Archer - A night tale...

He shuddered. Sweat dripped from his brow, hair stood on end, and his green eyes widened in alarm. The soft voice of Sangria lingered in his head as he slept, images of both redheads fought for control as the Lady in Red brandished a knife, plunging the blade deep into Augie’s stomach as Kurt gasped and woke up with a pant. “Uhh…” He quivered, shaky hands slid his white duvet away as he slithered out of bed, too afraid to even dream.

He stood there, silent, a raging storm bellowed outside of the apartment as the winds battered the door. He wore nothing save for some black shorts, his chest baring various scars as they decorated his chest as though a criminal had once sliced away at him like he was an apple. They had.

The door creaked open. “Kurt?”

“Kurt, are you there, sweetie?” He didn't respond. Backing away, the Gothic Knight gasped and closed the door to their room, placing his bare body against the wood and holding it shut. It was too much. Too much, Sangria, was too much. She had infected him her words, her body, and her intoxicating presence. Driven away his friends and driven away Augie. He cowered as his body pressed back harder, knocking the door onto the frame and causing it to make noise.

Sangria heard – She approached.

“Hm?” She mumbled, placing a smooth palm onto the handle as she tried to open the door, only to find it not budging. “What’s the matter, sweetie, is everything alright?” Her words were alarmingly disarming. Caring, an irresistible, peerless softness emanated from her red lips. She grew worried.

What had Kurt done? Her face scowled, her eyes glared, but her voice remained loving, like she genuinely cared for Kurt beyond an obsessive addiction. “Come on, darling, open the door. I promised you a fun night, remember?” She grinned. He whimpered. He opened the door, backing away and looking at his feet, the Gothic Knight was helpless. Like a child being scolded by a mother. Like a man being abused by a partner. Like he was nothing more than a plaything. He wasn't.

“Kurt…” Manicured fingers were outstretched as a potent nail was placed under his soft chin. Teasing at the skin and causing him to shudder, digging her nail up as his head was raised, she forced him to look up, into those emerald, feminine eyes. “…What’s happened? What’s the matter? I was only gone for a few hours…” She frowned, taking a single step forward as she placed soft palms onto his shaky shoulders, forcing him onto the wall with a quick spin as it made a thud, she pressed him there – Speaking. Dominating, bullying. Controlling.

“You do remember what I said, hm?” Poisonous eyes drained the Gothic Knight’s soul as she stared, as though he had lost his abilities. As though he was not a hero, not the commissioner of Gothic City nor a fighter. He was simply a man, a man too scared to even speak. “If you get yourself into trouble, I'll beat your ass, remember? – I thought you understood.” Her sharp nails dug into his shoulders. Blood was drawn, but Kurt merely whimpered again, looking away in repulsion and clenching his eyes closed in utter fear. He didn't want this.

He wanted a friend. Abigail. Augie. Noah. Higgins. Somebody. His breathing grew and grew, and her hunger grew all the same.“Kurt!” She snapped, grasping his cheeks with her hand, forcing him to look her in the eyes again. Staring him down.“Stop acting so ridiculous.” She let go and sauntered back, throwing off her red jacket as Kurt slouched back onto the wall and buried his emotion behind of a mental brick wall.

Head hanging, arms drooping, the Gothic Knight had never looked so vulnerable and defeated. Not by Charlemagne, not by the Brahma Bull, nobody – But Sangria? She had taken everything from him. Most of all, his will. Neatly placing her red jacket into the wardrobe and tying her hair back, she sauntered back over, her hips swayed rhythmically before that same nail was dug onto his chest – Onto his heart. She looked at him, licking her wicked lips.

“So, did you want to have fun, or are you just going to stand there? And anyways,” She said, flicking his nose and turning away, lying on the bed as she stretched out, taking comfort in the mattress’ softness as though her “partner” was not cowering just a foot away. “I’m glad you ditched Augie. You’re not hers, you’re mine. MINE.” She giggled. “Now, come here...” She flashed him a wicked smile, riveted by the sight of his helplessness, by his cowering – By him.

  • Special thanks to Psy for allowing me to write Mistress Sangria on her behalf.
  • This story involved Blood's character Augie. If anyone was wondering, not all know of the current story.
  • Thanks for reading! ^_^ And now you know what Kurt goes through :P

Kurt's IC training

This blog is just a few details (basic for some) of what Kurt has been taught or has learnt through experience.

Archery training from Assault: Contrary to popular belief, archery was not always the combat style of the Gothic Knight. In fact, it was only after being trapped within the mutant utopia known as Venezuela that Kurt originally opted to using the bow as a means of survival. Swiftly travelling back to the United States, and a short while after, running into contact with Anthony Stark's brother, Assault, who training Kurt how to properly use a bow and arrow in the urban jungle known as Gothic. The training lasted for a substantiate amount of time rendering Kurt one of the worlds foremost archers, his natural aptitude for the bow had been revealed. His secret talent unlocked, a gift which is constantly refined and perfected through continuous experience as one of the worlds most prominent and iconic heroes.

Intermediate Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training from Andres Knightfall: Trained to an intermediate standard by the A-List Knightfall in the technical art of BJJ, the Gothic Knight is able to defend himself against most attackers, trained and untrained, without feeling out of place. Although he is not the strongest nor the best grapple fighter in the world, having an understanding of the techniques and moves performed allows him to escape, or utilize other forms of weaponry to counter other artists. He rarely uses these moves in battle as an offensive, merely having an understanding of the art as a way to defend against an attack, rather than press on with an assault.

Stand up fighting from Andres Knightfall: Trained nearer the start of his heroic life, Kurt was taught how properly fight by Andres Knightfall, utilizing somewhat of an improvised Karate Stance, although he rarely uses any of the actual authentic styles of Karate or even the moves, Kurt often turns his body sideways in combat to lessen the exposure to a hand-to-hand opponent, or making it harder for a grappler to perform a single or double leg takedown, meaning he could easily withdraw a knife or other weapons before a chance to perform a move his been executed. The Knightfall taught Kurt how to defend himself against even some of the worlds best fighters, having personally fought the likes of Charles a few times and survived to tell the tale, Kurt is an experienced combatant, often integrating his weaponry into combat too, rendering him far more deadly than a normal stand-up fighter, and often unpredictable.

Taught how to control fire by Feral Nova: During his time in Gothic Kurt met and approached a woman known as Zoe, quickly befriending the woman and learning that she was a fire user (something which he had been struggling with for some time) made him want to learn how to utilize his own powers in the form of fire. Zoe agreed to teach Kurt and showed him to how to fire to his advantage, without injuring himself or others. Kurt is now able (when he has powers) to use fire in an effective manner. Currently unable to use fire due to a lack of powers >.>

Close Combat Knife fighting taught by Cassius Knightfall: During the time of Kamelot and when it was prosperous, the Gothic Knight took advantage of the fact so many Knightfalls were located within such a confined area, seeking teachings from Cassius on how to effectively use a blade and defeat an opponent as quickly as possible without telegraphing his attacks and making his intentions obvious.

Expert survivalist/tracker/escape and evade artist: 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 properly use guerrilla warfare against a highly potent mutant army. Kurt rarely uses any of this knowledge in Gothic though, due to Gothic (in his experience) being nowhere near as bad as Venezuela during the peak of the unrest.

Archery capabilities and bow

Since having his X-Gene vehemently stripped from his genetic code by Charlemagne during an ambush in Britain after visiting his dear friend known as Abigail, Kurt returned to the United States with the desire to valiantly continue his heroic crusade regardless of the loss of his powers, priding himself on being able to adapt to any and all situations. Upon returning to the United States Kurt quickly located and initiated talks with Anthony Stark regarding the acquisition of some specialized weaponry wanting to make sure he was adequately prepared to tackle heroic life even without his once prized and vaunted powers. Trying to talk with Stark and negotiate his way into being bestowed these desirable weapons, he used his past affiliation with the almost clandestinely kept government initiative known as The Blacklist as a persuasion technique. Luckily, Anthony did not only agree to helping the Gothic Knight but in turn, he offered the Guardian of Gothic something which he had never anticipated.

Without Kurt's knowledge (due to his friendship with her) Stark had recently kidnapped Antonia and temporarily confiscated a book known as the Palabra Del Dios, this book contained an overwhelming magnitude of knowledge written by the now deceased A-Lister know as Andres Knightfall and most specifically, it contained the secretive information on how to synthesize the unique metallic compound known as Trion. Utilizing his extensive resources and his personal understanding of science Stark was successful in flawlessly recreating the almost inimitable compound, although he did not create a large quantity of the substance and wholly respecting it's exclusivity. Supplementing the compound with his own technology, Stark awarded Kurt a sum of Trion and Stark-Tech personally tailored to perfectly compliment the young archers natural aptitude and inclination to use the bow. The majority of the technology being allocated to him being a numerous number of exotic arrows with an extensive array of versatile "trick" arrows to combat the more unorthodox foe. His standard armor was also recreated and reinforced out of Trion due to the compounds uncanny durability and energy absorption properties making it the ideal material for his dangerous lifestyle.

The majority of arrows the which he now possess are stored within his specially crafted bow in a liquid Trion state for ease of access, upon drawing on the strings of the bow the liquid Trion would instantly be released and transform itself into a solidified state ready to be fired. This reaction happens without delay and allows Kurt to rapidly fire arrows without having to actually withdraw an arrow from the standard method of using a quiver, the only prerequisite being he pulls upon the string. Although, in case his bows internal stores of Trion have been depleted the Paragon does possess a numerous amount of collapsible arrows which can perform exactly the same functions as the other arrows, only these are telescopic and start of in a solid state.The following arrows are the items which have been gifted to Kurt:

Arrows not Trion based are indicated with a *

  • Standard arrows: The standard arrow which the Emerald Archer possesses within his versatile armory and is mostly used to combat any threats due to the eerily sharp potency of the Trion compound they are crafted from. Being nigh-indestructible due to their nature being nearly or as strong as adamantium while having the shock absorbing capabilities of vibranium it would take a considerable amount of impact to shatter or even bend these arrows. Theoretically these arrows should be able to penetrate into virtually anything which is incapable of resisting their sharpened points to an atomic degree. Due to the rarity of the arrows they have been produced with a function to atomically deconstruct themselves after a short period of five minutes, meaning the compound does not fall into unwanted hands (although his process can be halted via a command from Kurt's bow) all of Kurt's arrows have a variety of interchangeable arrowheads, these include:
  1. Single point arrowhead: A single sharpened point which are mostly used to penetrate and go cleanly through an opponent. Most uses for these arrows could seem inconsequential due to them not actually being as dangerous as a broadhead and do not give any added benefit. The only reason Kurt would use these arrows against an opponent is to lessen the damage (as a Broadhead would usually cause life threatening harm) or for a more subtle kill or attack due to the quick entry and exit wound leaving less of a trail.
  2. Broadhead arrowhead: These are triangular shaped arrowheads and are mostly commonly used throughout history in wars and habitually preferred by hunters throughout the world. The function of these deadly arrows are to traumatically deliver a wide cutting edge as to kill an opponent as quickly as possible by cleanly cutting or severing major blood vessels and causing further internal trauma and bleeding within the target until the arrowhead is removed. Although, due to the Trion properties of the arrow they can easily pass through a target and the secondary damage potentially inflicted (the arrow being stuck in a body) is averted.
  3. JUDO tipped arrowhead: These arrowheads have a four pronged tip which are designed to penetrate into an opponent and not leave, but embed themselves into an opponents body and stop them escaping through a metal line being attached to the back of the arrow and the bow. An electrical current can be run through the electrical line in an attempt to electrocute an attacker who is stronger than usual.
  • Fragmentation arrows: Considerably more dangerous and malicious in thought, these arrows are made from the same Trion compound found internally stored within Kurt's specialized bow and upon departure from his weapon are instructed to deceptively take the appearance of a standard straight arrow being nothing out of the ordinary...Yet, upon command (via a trigger mechanism found upon Kurt's bow) or once physical contact has been exerted onto the arrowhead they would explode and fragment into a plethora of deadly Trion-Shrapnel in all directions capable of totally annihilating even the strongest and most durable opponent with hundreds of miniature lacerations and punctures in under a second, rendering them torn apart from the inside out with only a single shot. These arrows are used against opponents of considerable durability and the Verdant Knight is reluctant (even in his depowered state) to brutalize an enemy with such animosity unless the situation warrants it.
  • Flechette arrows: As per usual, upon departure from Kurt's bow these arrows look like the standard straight arrow posing no abnormal harm to an opponent. However, during flight these arrows are capable of dividing into dozens of miniature flechettes capable of dousing a large area with a single shot. Each flechette upon division travels at supersonic speeds (due to the bows powerful shot) and even a single cut could render an opponent defeated due to the forces imparted. The Gothic Knight customarily opts to using these arrows against multiple opponents or enemies who are far more agile than himself, or when he has the element of surprise and does not want to miss an ambush opportunity. Due to the flechettes being made from the hardened metal known as Trion, each blade is capable of cutting through even the strongest earth metals with effortless resistance.
  • Energy absorption arrows: These arrows are capable of utilizing the energy absorption properties of Trion to render opponents significantly weaker upon contact or being near the presence of the metallic substance. These are strategically used against opponents who are not purely physical and rely on metaphysical, or ethereal means of existence and may be harder to combat. They are also capable of reducing the thermal energy of an object and rendering them frozen, or attempting to freeze the target if required during combat (by "stealing" the heat from an opponents body).
  • Pressure arrows (These pressure arrows written by Impero): 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.
  • *Sonic disruption arrows: These arrows are specifically crafted to disrupt an enemy by giving off a dual pronged sonic attack in the form of a very high pitched and intense noise which can cause harm to most of the superhuman population who are highly adept at hearing, this alone could render the standard human crippled due to the agonizing pain pulsing through their ears. The secondary noise is a very loud, and sudden sonic boom which alone could rupture somebody's delicate eardrum and cause disorientation and confusion towards an opponent. To confuse a vehicle which may be using sonar as a means to locate Kurt, Stark further gifted him arrows which can deceptively use a transponder located within the arrowhead to mimic a radar echo with a delay to indicate incorrect range thus making it harder for him to be tracked.
  • *Electroshock (taser) arrows: These electroshock arrows are an elegant approach to incapacitating violent opponents who wish to cause Kurt harm without ever needing to opt to lethal measures. These arrows carry an electronic pulse which perfectly mimics the electrical signals used within the human body to communicate between the brain and the muscles which are responsible for moving. The arrows interfere with these electrical impulses in order to tell (or force) the attackers muscles to perform a great deal of work within a very short space of time, and yet, the electroshock does not direct the work to any particular movement. In consequence, the shock depletes the attackers energy reserves and potentially leaves them too weak to continue fighting. In effect causing their entire body to cramp and become ideally incapacitated. Kurt could potentially perform these attacks and turn them lethal via upping the bodily instructions to expend more energy than the body actually has in it's reserves, causing the target to die of exhaustion. They are usually used against opponents who pose a non-lethal danger to Kurt, or a lethal opponent who needs to be weakened. These arrows are not made from Trion and are simple but reliable Carbon fiber arrows stored within telescopic arrowheads.
  • Thermally charged arrows: These Trion based arrows are able to fly through the air while their atomic structure frantically vibrates causing a rapid heating of the metal to degrees which is capable of burning through virtually any material on the earth. The thermal potency of these arrows is boosted by their energy absorption capabilities meaning they absorb the kinetic energy during flight and covert the energy into heat, rendering them thermally supercharged and extremely deadly. They are often used to burn holes through heavily armored opponents (and equipment/vehicles) with little to no effort.
  • *Explosive arrows: Probably one of the most simple but effective weapons within the Emerald Archers expansive arrowed armory allowing him to fire an arrow which is lined throughout of the entire shaft (and the arrowhead is loaded) with an explosive substance capable of blasting through the strongest bank vaults doors. The amount of explosive can be decided upon command from his bow.
  • *Adhesive/acid/corrosive arrows: These arrows upon contact with a surface are able to discharge an acidic or adhesive corrosive substance for numerous purposes. The corrosive properties of the acid are able to easily corrode through solid concrete while the adhesive substance is able to bind together things with a maximum limit of five tons before the adhesion fails. The adhesive is also able to be saturated with corrosive properties rendering it a sticky and highly volatile attack.
  • Electrified Titanium/Trion alloy netting: A simple arrow yet effective trick arrow. These are used to ensnare an opponent within a titanium/trion alloy netting and averting them from causing harm to Kurt through non-lethal means. They are also able to give off an electric charge and further incapacitate an opponent. If the situation calls for it, Kurt would be able to activate a thermal supercharge and heat up the alloyed netting, causing vicious scolds and burns to an enemy which could potentially be fatal. The netting is almost unbreakable due to the Titanium/Trion compound used...Sadly, due to it being an alloy and not a pure for of Trion, it is breakable if enough force is exerted.
  • Source particle arrows: These Trion based arrows were atomically infused with a large quantity of source particles during the process of creation allowing for them to fully tap into the potential of which lies within the realms of source particles and their versatile combat use. Anthony Stark personally gave Kurt these arrows with the selfish motive of watching them be field tested. The particles correspond to a signal attached inside of Kurt's bow and works via an instantaneous communication link to the bow and the arrows allowing them continuous a connection. The unique source particles are able to instantly alter the size of anything at a subatomic level with seemingly no restriction on what they can alter. By altering an items size they can exponentially increase or decrease an objects physical mass to scale without any adverse consequences to organic matter. They have also been known to interact with their surroundings and flawlessly mimic the effects of intangibility. The also have the capacity to disrupt most fields of energy and have even been known to infect an organic hope with an inorganic virus to cripple their biological systems. These particles are very elusive and it has always been hard for even Anthony Stark to analyse and understand how they work exactly. The only knowledge which has been deciphered thus far is they effect nearly anything at an atomic level (or the "source" level) to which everything is created, and with instruction, these particles have limitless potential. Kurt is often seen using these Source Particle infused arrows to attack an enemy who may be hiding through a wall or he does not have clear access due to obstruction. They are quite possibly the deadliest arrow which Kurt possesses within his extensive armory.
  • *Smoke screen/flash arrows: These arrows are simply a way for Kurt to escape and evade from an enemy without causing harm to himself or any onlookers. Upon detonation an emerald smoke screen is emitted which clouds the area in a thick haze of mist until it dissipates from the air after around fifteen or so minutes after being used. The arrows are also capable of sending out a vividly bright flash of light in all spectrum of light intended to temporarily blind/disorientate a normal human, this is also used to wreak havoc with unprotected visual devices (such as cameras) which are unable to adjust to the sudden brightness. The flash is often accompanied by a loud bang which in itself does not cause any harm to anybody, but can turn be used as a further distraction. These arrows are made from simple carbon fiber (stored within telescopic arrowheads) and are not intended to be lethal, hence being blunt and not actually capable of harming anybody (although, the sudden flash of light does emit a type of heat which could potentially burn or scold a target).
  • Power dampening arrows: Source Particles. Particles capable of almost any task given the correct programming, miniture nanites once used to disable Amaranth's intangibility. Often used by the Gothic Knight to dampen the abilities of foes, first developed to restrict Psyknight's abilities (which worked) the arrows are able to usually bypass an opponents immune system, and constantly adapt, disrupting their nervous system and hopefully dampening, or restricting access to a mutants X-Gene, regenerative factor, or a meta-humans powers.

Bow capacities

Kurt's technologically crafted bow was made by Anthony Stark to enable him to function in combat without the aid of his powers. The bow is made from an unknown metallic compound which Anthony Stark uses for his suits and has been made compatible to internally store a copious amount of Liquid Trion enabling Kurt to quickly access his arrows the instant he pulls back on the string. The specific functions of this bow;

  • An inbuilt 360* degree radar scanner which is able to detect foreign threats and comprehend if they would hold a probable harm to the bows wielder. Upon detection of a possible threat, the bow would alert Kurt to the foreign object allowing him a chance to evade. Due to the radar working with electromagnetic waves which are naturally going at near light-speed the detection of objects is nearly at instant speeds.
  • The bow is able to continually communicate with the arrows during their transit through the air and even after they have fallen onto the ground, this enables trick arrows such as explosives to be detonated from a safe distance.
  • All arrows (unless instructed otherwise) are fired from the bow at supersonic speeds.
  • The bow only works in Kurt's hands.

Eye mask

An eye-mask crafted by Anthony Stark for the Gothic Knight, made of an ultra-durable flexible substance which is virtually unbreakable due to it's tensile flexibility. The mask enables Kurt to see things in a full range of the EM Spectrum enabling him to see opponents who may be hidden from plain view by items of obstruction or dust. Kurt often uses the X-Ray vision to locate targets inner areas and fire at specific organs to impair etc... The mask works through thought, enabling Kurt to quickly switch between visual modes. It is also able to communicate with his bow and "mark" targets and select who may be the most dangerous, and can automatically mark strategic points of focus during battle. The mask inadvertently defends Kurt against airborne attacks which may try and inter his body through his eyes, or stop the effects of CS and Pepper spray gas.

The Gothic Warehouse...

Inside Gothic lies an unassuming almost forgotten warehouse. Deep within the desolate docks of the City of Sin, deep within the urban jungle of Gothic. Kurt harbors a warehouse full of extensive equipment enabling him to carry out his heroic duties to the best of his abilities for the safety of himself, and the safe guarding of the citizens. None would know that the Emerald Knight, or otherwise known as, the Gothic Knight, held his pantry of heroism inside a mere warehouse.

A warehouse still technically owned by the now defunct Peak Tower in their old era, an old program to rejuvenate Gothic City was terminated with Starks unfortunate and unexpected death, all warehouses pertaining to the mission simply left and allowed to rot and some, expectedly, looted once the illicit's caught whiff of what was inside.

Yet...Kurt found the one warehouse where Peak's influence had gone all but unscathed. The technology having been preserved within boxes, only now fitted and assembled after months and months of tediously tiring work. Nobody knew about the inner's of Kurt's location, save for Jack the living AI. Many knew of the "Iconic" Archers domain. But nothing regarding the technology nor accessories inside....

Down a secret passage towards the back of the warehouse. A trapped door only accessible with a highly sensitive finger scan would enable Kurt access. Once inside and the ladder had been descended, Kurt's armory would be the first somebody would view....Nothing special, right?...

...Turn on the light, and you'd see an assortment of beautifully laid out emerald suits. An exotic amount of arrows: The Knightfall A-Listers gifted "Pressure Arrows" peacefully resting inside holders and multiple spare physical bows on display never actually being used.

Nothing which a Gothic hero would be unable to attain - But, say, somebody managed to take a specific arrow out of the bunch, remove the tip and press a button, the entire room may change?

The voluminous wall would spin around unveiling the secondary part of this base, fitted with an extensive array of past Peak technology giving him an unrivaled insight into the Gothic Police Departments scanners, radios and personal files.

Tech which he seldom used, but if needed, he may take. Schematics (once used to get Animus's trust) are laid around, merely ready to be bartered with. The base however is fitted with holographic projections and 24/7 security ready to be used, and other technology too tedious to describe. Kurt had literally found a modern day goldmine.

...And nobody would ever know.

Pyrograms Re-Written Origins

So yeah. Loads of people misunderstand his origins and such (well...I had only written like 2 paragraphs initially) so re-wrote it entirely ready for a revamp of his powers in the near near future, and he now has a name - Say hello to...

Kurt!

Born in the United States of America Kurt was an average teenager, straight out of high-school his passion in life was to take up a fond career in journalism after majoring in journalistic studies and Human Rights affairs. At the young age of 20, the future Paragon decided to visit the recently ruined country of Venezuela shortly after the devastatingly destructive PEAK/HALO industries war to progress a paper he was writing on human rights abuses inside of this intoxicated country.

Unluckily the Future Paragon was trapped inside of this country during the civil and militarized unrest, Kurt was luckily sheltered by a nice family who fed and housed him, the radioactive poisoning within the country however triggered a dormant X-Gene to manifest itself physically, resulting in an explosion which nearly killed the family he was sheltering with. For over three weeks the heroic enigma wandered around like a lost soul scavenging, secluding himself from further help knowing it was too risky to stay with the previous family. During his time alone in the cataclysmic aftermath of a country he learnt basic survival skills and dynamic risk assessments to asses when somebody would be deemed volatile, something which would help him greatly in his future heroic career.

Inevitably he was captured by the Venezuelan Response Squad (at the time, the "police" of the country). He was beaten and nearly murdered. Fortunately during a military takeover initiated by the mutant supremacist xenon and the Mutant Messiah known as Fukuro Zoku who was also Impero of the Reisho Monastery, the country was "saved" by the unison of two unstoppable figures leading the VLA (Venezuelan Liberation Army) which easily liberated the country from VRS hands. The country had previously been split into four quarters, the South, East, West and North.

Now under the rule of two of the most powerful mutants in existence Kurt was given citizenship into the new United Republic Of Venezuela and things were looking up, or so he thought. Who would have known this country founded on liberation and liberty would arrest and jail him for not being a true mutant (due to his corrupt X-Gene). Imprisoned and tested upon by the supreme chancellor established that the cause of his faulty DNA was down to his parents, one being a genetically altered mutant so it meant his mothers X-Gene was not correct however the fathers was perfect.

So this combined fact - meant he had an unstable, faulty X-Gene. The only reason he was gifted with his energetic abilities was the radioactive poisoning releasing the dormant X-Gene within his DNA. The Chancellor crafted the future Paragon a ring, this ring crafted with some of the highest forms of technology enabled for a full stabilization of his abilities.

The Chancellor however failed to mention the sole reason behind of his help for the future Paragon, in actuality he was only assisting Kurt in a preemptive attempt to attain a super warrior capable of sustaining a prolonged war with the United States of America for their hand in the destruction of the country before it was saved.

It was only upon overhearing a meeting between two VLA guards and the Chancellor which alerted Kurt to such deception, he quickly fled the country through an underground passage still to this day being one of, if not the only secret entrance in and out of the mutant utopia discounting the Bridge of Appeal. Fleeing to the United States of America once more he dedicated his life to heroism after establishing control of his abilities through the rings use.

There you have it. Kurt (Pyro's) origins.

Pyro's full powers

Now. I'm simply putting this blog up as I don't wanna clog up my bio with loads of powers which are not totally relevant, recently Pyro lost his power stabilizing ring to donara thus turning into an archer. His powers are the same. Yet hard to use, and dangerous. So I will hardly EVER use them, but when I do I don't want people thinking I'm pulling sh!t outta my ass so posting in a blog.

Default

The Chancellor realized that the only way to fully harness his powers was through crafting an item which could stabilize his powers, and help him "channel" his inner strength into something usable. His powers now work through thought; thinking of green does nothing as this is his standard color and offensive/defensive power set. Thinking of blue means he can heal but not attack anybody. When thinking of red he is amplified in power slightly and gains faster reactionary speeds. Thinking of orange means he can find a target or objective though an inherent clairvoyance ability yet not actually be able to perform any physical or external attacks while in any state other than red or green. The power works through a subconscious link into his mind through the ring connecting to him, having no neurological delay the changes are instant in effect upon thought , however reverting back from one change to another can sometimes take time depending on how or why he changed.

His standard color, this allows him to harness his inner "energy" which is his natural powers. Normally, he is able to create a low level force-field around himself or shoot bolts of concussive "energy" towards people without the ring, so not really a power which is usable without harming others due to his destructive properties. However, the ring at its standard color is green - This allows his power to be harnessed and channeled through thought into any item he wishes without any limit, other than extreme tiredness if he exerts himself too much.

  • His Ring can store his physical body in a "memory" version of itself leaving an apparition or past version of himself somewhere else, once this is done the ring can transcend time/space and travel FTL. Once done, his body can exit the ring.
  • Can at standard travel just above super sonic speeds, yet his upper limit is unknown.
  • His physical strength level is nigh infinite, due to him always being able to amplify his strength through his rings "energy" , or in reality once he runs out of "power" he reverts to human strength.
  • His defensive aura/force field acts as a second set of muscles/bones even if his interior ones are broken/torn.

Force-Field

The ring whenever turned on emits itself and gives off a low level force-field which is capable of absorbing heat energy, kinetic energy and other forms of attack to help defend, it can also stop things like bullets and knives to an extent and can sometimes be extended to defend other people if needed, this aura or shielding also amplifies his natural abilities and senses. Whenever the force-field is in activation, he does not need to eat or sleep as his body feeds off his body's inner "energy" once harassed by the ring. It also negates the effect of outer space and allows him to travel at speeds beyond human comprehension without causing physical damage to his body. Gravitational changes which could cause injury are stabilized by the ring to avert Pyro from harm if planet jumping. The ring allow Pyro to render himself invisible by bending light waves around his physical body creating an illusion of invisibility however in this state he is blind.

Love , Ninjas and overprotective Fathers #2

(Part one)

Happily walking through the village trade stalls Alistair and Asuka held hands passing by the stalls taking in the sweet aromas being sold on display as traditional perfumes, Alistair taking a few sneaky peak towards the martial art sellers contemplating whether or not to purchase some extra shurikens knowing they would be a useful backup in case the raid on the imperial palace went sour, being tasked with kidnapping a rich aristocrats daughter from one of, if not the most protected palace in the Japanese region. Regardless his eyes snapped back towards of a fruit stall as Asuka's eyes glistened in the light as she looked towards of her capricious potential husband. "Alistair..." her dark eyes shifted focus as they gazed downwards anxiously "...I never said sorry..." Her words almost stuttered under the pressure, neither of the two had spoken since the event inside of the kitchen when she lay a hand upon him ".,.For -" Before her sentence could be fully accomplished a bark almost of an imperative nature snarled outwards grabbing the attention of the duo, the voice being unmistakable in venom and spite, the dreaded father.

"Tsk, Such an insult" Briskly walking over disrespectfully snatching the wife from the hopeful husbands arms a disdainful look of inherent hate was shot towards of Alistair without addressing him, feeling the man was not worth wasting breath on. Indeed, he spoke to his daughter "I have already told you - You shall not marry such an inferior suitor" Asuka strained her mouth shut wanting to shout yet knowing it would only lead to her being beaten by the father out of disrespecting his word.

But love overcomes, her mouth widened in anger as her brow creased words spitting out "I shall marry Alistair!" Boldly breaking away from the fathers grip she attempted to run over into her future husbands arms and embrace. Before the two were reunited the father stepped in between using a traditional insult of the utmost disrespect so nonchalantly thrown at Alistair as if he was nothing but a mere dog "May 死神 devour your soul! Move out of my way you cancer!" Alistair stooped down into an aggressive stance shouting reasonable abuse back before his wife spoke "Please...my love, stop" Alistair felt the rage boiling within his inner spirit and mind wanting to simply dismember and belittle the father figure this very instant making a brash assumption he had no formal training in the arts of war. His stance inferred no knowledge nor learning making for no possible assumptions of combat prowess "I cannot allow this to happen any longer" One nimble step forwards the ninja warrior strode outwards his weight resting nearly solely upon his front foot trying to simply send a powerful overhead punch aiming directly at the ridiculously overprotective fathers face teaching him a most deserved lesson and yet....

His entire posture, attack and figure was hilariously dismantled in front of the entire crowd of screaming plebs wanting to view a battle between a samurai and a simple old man, a quick pace forwards sending a surprisingly potent palm-strike colliding directly onto Alistair's left cheek bone sending him jolting downwards as his own energy being mysteriously redirected back onto himself causing for an overly powerful connection with the dirty, rough ground. His back connecting first followed by his face skidding onto the floor like a grater. The father backed away interlocking his hands behind of his back his chest held authoritatively high boasting a self thought superiority spitting towards of the downed foe "Pathetic" He looked at his daughter "You shall never marry such worthless inadequacy" Smirking the father forcefully grabbed the woman's resisting arm as they walked off, the downed warrior's trembling hand touching his wounded face in disbelief, years of training had appertained to nothing more than being unceremoniously defeated by a seemingly inferior opponent.

Mere stutters were all the samurai could summon as he watched the father and daughter were lost from his bloodshot vision due to the encircling crowd, some trying to help the man up others simply smirking or making disrespectful hand movements yet he dismissed and ignored all only having one thought on his mind. Murder. This pathetic feud had gone on for too long, it was nearing an end one way or another. Legal, or otherwise.

Love , Ninjas and overprotective Fathers #1

Japan - Aijou Village

The serene mountain ranges of the Aijou region in Japan are said to be some of if not the most placid ranges you'd find anywhere on planet earth, yet slow in life unyielding to the pendulum of change unavailing on all levels to mother natures social conforms of change mysteriously staying in its natural beauty being a sightly spectacle for generation after generations of Japanese families allowing for a vastly rich bio-diverse region.

The chastely precious mountain range being seemingly untainted save for the parasitical infestation which feeds off of the land, this parasite infection which steals and ravages the serenity is something far less sinister than the simple mind would imagine, for the mind is the parasite. Humanity is the one and only infection upon this land, the ironic twist of fate. In chaste peace lives an almost divine death. Humanity.

The Village of Aijou

The young Alistair stared downwards at his dinner taking in the rich aromas rippling around of the house, the quintessential nature of the village allowed for the perfect harmony of natural smells coupled with human made aromas to perfectly combine in desired unison, Alistair humbly smiled towards of his chosen wife one hand peacefully resting upon of his robed knee as he started to speak "Asuka, you know your father is still unrelenting with his stubborn attitudes towards me" The troubled man shook his head disapprovingly, he had been trying for the last three months to gain permission from the father to allow him to wed the wife....yet, to his detriment regardless of his gifts to the family, virtues and safety he could provide to the authentically beautiful wife the father had refused all proposals.

This angers Alistair yet he was a peaceful man...but a man he was, and a man could only take so much rubbish and spite before losing his composure, until he saw red. The wife spoke her eyes easily seeing the understandable frustration flowing through the hopeful husbands eyes "Al, I know you've been frustrated but my father has good reason...we both know this" Her eyes darted downwards disdainfully peering through open window to the side at the trees being blown so tranquilly by the invisible wind like strings pulling onto them from the heavenly clouds....he spoke pained as his lips curled into a sorrowful shape followed by a sigh "I...know...I..I know" His gaze followed on as the wife stood up walking to the kitchen picking up the plates on the way out ready to clean.

Five minutes later

Temptation is another trait which only humanity can reign superior over when compared towards the humble tree, the mountain ranges. And temptation is what Alistair had only recently yielded too. Walking towards of his hopeful wife as the noise of dishes being washed rang throughout of the house vibrating through the fragile wooden decorative panels so iconic to the Japanese way of life he crept up behind of Asuka with a playful smile subtly placing his hands upon her hips as he spoke "You know" His voice grew closer as he leaned in towards of the woman speaking nearer to her ear sending an anxious chill down the woman's spine "We don't have to get your fathers approval" suddenly, the woman's face scrunched up into a look of distaste as she tactfully removed his arms from her sides, looking into his smirking face "What are you saying AL?...disrespect my father?" Her eyes gazed back down towards of the cutlery "I cannot, will not do such thing" The man of the house then moved his lips closer towards of her neck quickly planting a soft kiss before retracting his head back speaking quickly "What is the worst the old man could do?" And.....another trait which only humanity shares uncommon to mother nature... Anger. Quick temper.

The hand of the woman you loved being bestowed so forcefully upon a warriors cheek pained more than a dagger digging deep into the burrows of your heart, for this tore it out and threw it into the lava pit. Not just the disrespect shown as a woman struck a man but the pain and heartfelt sorrow of a loved one....laying a hand on another, the pain of knowing you had angered your love further enough to make them physically manifest emotions against you.

Alistair was confused, and yet he could say nothing as he stared towards of his trembling wife dumbfounded why she had done such a thing in a moment of madness, terrified that he would beat her for it. Yet he said nothing. A painful tear escaped his characteristically tardy eyes simply turning around and leaving the room not wishing to face his wife out of sheer embarrassment coupled with self resentment.

15 minutes later

Sometime shortly after the disturbing events the resentful longing-to be husband sat on his knees contemplating the events which had just unfolded staring into his pond the water so clear, his mind a perfect contrast.

Collecting thoughts and deciding what to do listening to the peaceful noises surrounding the exotically placed location in the middle of the village. His tranquility was broken as light yet firm footsteps where heard trampling down upon the wildlife crushing leaves without care or attention for mother nature.

The magical way humans could sometimes tell who was entering a room by the way a man carried himself by foot, and this was the unmistakable footings of the father....the man who had caused him so much pain stopped adjacent to the knelt troubled man prior to a harsh converse "You will never share a bond of matrimony with her" Alistair closed his eyes concentrating on the peaceful sounds around blanking the distraction as the man approached him some more "You and your clan of Ninja's...warriors, you are no good for my daughter" disrespectfully spitting towards the ground just beside of Al's feet he walked into the house with a smirk knowing those few words would cause considerable pain.

Alistair looked towards the ground tears welling up inside of his body with the urge to just drown himself in the pond beneath himself...yet that would achieve nothing. He longed for love, he longed for the marriage. But he longed for the fathers approval beyond all things. The day by day verbal assaults which carried with each visit plucked a heart string from his soul...every..single..day. But how much can a man take before he sees red? Only time would tell.
