Hey, here it is, the reference sheet for my character Clementine for the Nightmare OC tournament. There's the story:
Age: Originally 16 Height: 1.65m Weight: 45kg Measures: ... Do you really expectme to give that info?
About: Last living member of the Fontnoire Family from France, an old family suspected of practicing sorcery. Anyway, Despite of the influence of her family, at the time the german troops entered french territory, a secret team of 80 soldiers were sent to the Fontnoire mansion to investigate about the paranormal phenomena and the supernatural powers of the family. Unfortnately, an unexpected rising of the citizens of the town were the Fontnoire family lived, forced the soldiers to use the mansion as a frontline base. The Clementine's father tried to stop them, nothing would've happened if not for an accidental shot from one of the soldiers, resulting in the death of Clementines father. When the rest of her family refused to reveal the secrets of the mansion, the soldiers executated the remaining members of the family.
This unleashed the Clementine's fury, and se got even more furious when her Friend; Roberto tried to protect her from being shot by the back. Roberto died, and Clementine started to decimate the soldiers, one by one, till no one remained alive, after that, she retired to a strange subterranean construction called "The garden of the midnight wonder" or "The Stone garden" built under the mansion, and the place of ryths of her family for generations. 4 months after that, Nightmare came to visit her.
Fighting: Being so young is not an advantage sometimes, Clementine has very little fighting experience. She's a smart girl, so, very often she is very passive at fighting, observing an acting as she thinks is the best way. Her style is pretty more intuitive when shes has no time for observing the enemy: she attacks the way she feels it can result more effective dependng on the situation. Her lack of experience is mostly compensed by the abundance of experience coming from the entity living inside her: The dark maiden. Bye inheritance, she has natural high resistance to physical pain.
The dark maiden: The last one of an ancient interdimensional being race, that lived among the humans at the time the Inhabitants of atlantis were wiped out from the face of the earth by the wrath of a raising god. The rest of her race were exterminated along with the atlants. After that she passed thousands of years sleeping, until the ancesters of the Fontnoire discovered her place of resting and built a house over that place. Since then she began to being worshipped by the family, and in each generation a member of the fontnoire was chosen to be host of her. That way she can walk and see the outside world, because without a host and outside of her homeworld, she will die in matter of hours. In exchange, the host gains increased strenght, speed, senses and an almost unlimited healing capability (an amputated limb can regrow in about 10 or 20 minutes, while wounds smaller than that heals almost instantly). The dark maiden gives the host the power of surviving for years without eating or sleeping, as she feeds on psychic energy coming from emotions o thoughts from living beings.
A commonly used hability is to make grow extra limbs or tissue, which density, hardness or texture can vary depending of what the host needs at the moment. This gives the host a very high defensive capability, being able to withstand, grenade impacts and other types of explossives. If needed, She can jump or run truly fast to avoid danger, at abou 90-120kmh for a few seconds.
The host becomes inmune to poison, diseases, and the effects of age. It presents a moderated tolerance to radiation, because any damage caused by that is inmediately regenerated.
Weaknesses: Any directed-energy weapon blow can kill both the dark maiden and the host, in this cases, the shield of th dark maiden becomes ineffective and her best choice is to avoid the blows. Also, the battle performance depends of the level of concentration of the host; if it is too upset to concentrate, it becomes very difficult for the dark maiden to coordinate an attack. The dark maiden can in any moment take control of the host's body, but she will do it only to escape or hide in some place, an rarely to ignore the host's will and quickly supress a threat.
Miscelaneous: The artifact in her legs is actually to help her walking while she's not using the dark maiden's powers. When she was 10 years old, she fell from a horse over a rock on the ground, as result she she broke her back and started to have an abundant bleeding, she would've if not for the decission their fathers took: Make her the dark maiden's host 10 years before they planned. That way Clementine was able to survive, but since the wound on her back wa inflicted before she became the host, it will take a couple of years to heal it using the regenerative hability of the dark maiden. Anyway, to help her, her father built that structure to give her a little more movility.
The dress she's wearing in the ref sheet an the last panels of th audition is a little strange to be from the 1940's, and it is because it's made to be used as a ritual clothing during the rites of the family. Originally, the skirt was the same lenght of the dress she uses in the first pages of the audition, but sometimes the skirt got stuck in the artifacts she uses for walking, and so, she decided to shorten the dress, so she can move freely, that's why she picked that one to attend the nightmare's offering of entering his tournament.
Even when she has lost every single person she loved along with her desire to live on, she's still being a kind person, definitively not as joyful as she once was, but is easy to talk to her, or ask her for help if needed.
Clementine is the host the dark maiden loved more of all she had through the years. And actually she stopped feeling the need of protecting Clementine for her own profit, right now she protects her because she loves clementine as if she were her daughter.
I wrote this really really quick, so, it may have some errors, heheh, sorry.
Alright! Here is my character whom I shall be using in the Nightmare Tournament! Well, actually, characters. Yeah, I'm talking about that guy behind Dark. I shall make a seperate sheet for him ^^ ANYWAYS. Onward to the details.
Height: 5 Feet
Weight: 101 lbs
Abilities: Dark is a songstress, therefore she can use her voice for many things besides speaking. Such as deafening her opponents, increasing/decreasing someone's mood, boosting/weakening one's strength, and repelling some creatures. Along with summoning her scythe and pyramid with chain.
Weapons: Scythe [Summoning Incantation: Ku-Ren] and pyramid with chain [Summoning Incantation: So-Ru-Te] Edit 12.12.10: I CHANGED THE INCANTATIONS! HAHAHA. *SHOT* NOTE: The incantations do necessarily mean anything. They are just the chimes that her weapons respond to and these specific weapons only respond to the sound of her voice, so if anyone else tried it, nothing would happen.
Personality: Dark is a kind and somewhat motherly person. She tends to call people 'dear' or 'hun,' that is, if she knows them well enough OR they are a child. However, she can be scary when she wants to, but that is rare, so no one has to really worry about that. She is also one of those people who put others' well-being before hers, it is just the way she is.
History: Dark lives with her father and brother back home in America. Her mother died of a horrible cancer when Dark was only 11, so it has affected her greatly. However, she has come to get used to the fact that her mother was not there anymore, so she is not as depressed. She thinks about her sometimes, though, who would forget someone so close? Not Dark, that was for sure. As time passed, Dark became the motherly figure in her homestead. She has become tom-boyish, too, though, since she only lives with two males. She did not mind though. She loved them and was glad that they were at least still here. Then, one day, after she returned home from a trip she had with her friends, she discovered that her family was missing. No note, no calls, the car in the driveway was still there. She became extremely worried and started to search for them. In her search, she came apon a wounded creature [Guess who] and brought him back to her home, since it was starting to get dark out anyways. She helped him heal and as time passed, she has learned many things about this creature. Even his name. However, she did not know what species he was, neither did he. It did not matter after a while, all she knew is that she had made a new friend, as strange as he may be.
Strengths: +Small, so she can hide easier +Light, so she can evade/run away swiftly +Skilled in handling weapons +Is a songstress, so she can use her ear-shattering screams to her advantage +Good problem solver
Weaknesses: -Short, so it is hard for her to reach things -If she uses her powers too much, it will start to hurt her -Is not that strong -If someone is in danger, she will automatically try to save/help them instead of herself. [I guess that is a weakness..]
My character for *NightmareTournament, hosted by the lovely *FanArtPoodleAfro with the help of a ton of judges I know. I debated for a while over whom to enter before I realized just how perfect she would be. *facepalm* XD (Of course, I knew as soon as the regal *QueenGwenevere said she had characters "perfect for the tournament" that there would be other dream-influencing characters in the tourney, and that this would greatly reduce my chances of getting in. [I mean, come on. It's Queen G!] Hopefully her skills are different enough to merit a look.)
She's bound to get flattened because her only real power is tying knots in thread. And reacting to whatever comes out of that, hopefully with enough speed and skill to matter. But I like to think that in this, she is akin to myself, and we share the wonderful being-flattened bond, as I shall inevitably be crushed in this tourney just like she will. Poor thing!
She sounds sort of like young Anastasia from the animated movie, but without an accent.
I am actually proud of how this ref sheet turned out, in contrast to my entry comic. -_-
For a little more information on Myth, please see the Artist's Comments under this deviation: [link]
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
Disclaimer: IF I happen to make it into the tournament, I would prefer any opponents of mine not kill, dismember, or otherwise reduce her to a quivering mess. Of course, I realize that in tourneys, all of this is fair game, especially with the Nightmare Tournament. It's only a polite request. If you can get around it, please try. If you can't, please tell me in advance so I can prepare for the crushing blow of seeing her in a splattered mess
This was a comission done for me by Thanks! You did a great job! --------------------------------- Name: Nairb. No real reason behind the name; was just given to him before the tourney started so others could call on him if needed, since he had no real name, save for the title of Id.
Age: 16 years of existence, though no true age has been established.
History: Spawned from a young boys mind as Id, has been growing and feeding off of his emotions ever since his existence began, 16 years ago. Has no real body; is a semi-solid demonic-spirit creature (not even HE knows what he truly is) who can flex his grip on his existence, and lives off of others to survive, except for when resting in dreams or peoples subconscious; this enables him to live/exist Nitemares world without any expenditure of his life, although controlling a person would certainly make him feel healthier and stronger. Wants power and control; and is looking for another stronger, better host to control when his current one dies so he can live on in a new body. Enjoys torturing people, both physically (including making numerous cuts, as well as such tactics as controlled drowning) and mentally (including constant scaring of his victims to verbal/mental harassment); prefers mental torture because his victims last longer than through physical torture.
Personality: Cocky, arrogant, rude, overall ass to practically everybody he meets. Taunts his opponents CONSTANTLY to get into their heads. Often quotes movies, music, and famous people, both old and new. Uses opponents personal history and what they care about most against them. Will make friends, but only to use them for his overall benefit. Plots a lot before hand, but if gets agitated, doesnt think straight. Curses a bit, but not TOO excessively, except maybe if in a lot of pain ...
Weapon: His hands, which fingers extend out two inches and sharpen into blades; his feet, which he can grow small talon-like blades on the heels as well as the toes. When not in use, has human-looking hands and feet. Uses environment as a weapon as well.
Fighting Style: A strange combination of stealth, animalistic instincts, and kickboxing. Hides in shadows and waits for the prefect moment to strike, and depending upon the situation, either unleashes a quick barrage of attacks, or one-hit-kills like stabbing through the victims chest: although prefers to keep them alive as long as possible to lay with them. Defiantly does NOT fight head-to-head or brawls.
Pros: His sneakiness enables him to move quickly throughout the area quickly and quietly. Ability to shift his form prevents him from being crushed under and large objects; can make himself more or less solid as the situation demands. Is an expert at psychological warfare/torture, and is pretty good at physical torture.
Cons: Cant deal out or take a lot of physical damage. Doesnt kill his victims quickly, giving them time to counter-attack and recover. Takes some insults personally, distracting himself from the fight. Is a prime target for good people, and is marked as a backstabber for bad people, so friends he can trust are hard to come by. Cant keep constantly shifting how solid he is, for it tires him out when he does it too much. Sunlight weakens him slightly, makes it harder for him to shift his physical form.
Note: Although he doesnt wear clothes, he may dress up with stuff he finds from others, searching closets, etc., but will quickly abandon them if he needs to shift through objects.
Is a semi-solid demon-spirit thing, so direct attacks wont hurt him, but the impact will- if, say, shot with an arrow, it would get stuck in him, and he would have to materialize his hand a bit stronger in order to pull it out, thusly making the hand susceptible to damage. In order to cause actual pain, he needs to be in a solid form- the easy way would be to get him tired from constantly shifting his form from, say, continuously throwing large objects on him.
Can take over peoples minds, but only from entering the victims body via an open wound (natural orifices such as the mouth dont count). The bigger and more recent the wound, the easier it will be. Killing the person under his control doesnt kill him, but it does weaken him greatly. He could (technically) control the dead body and make it move like a zombie, but he would still be stuck inside; controlling dead bodies doesnt give him any life force as well, so it would drain it instead. He is always keen to try and avoid such situations.
His voice is slightly raspy and deep; more like someone sick than someone evil sounding...
EDIT: NO, this is NOT a fan-made creation of Nightmare! Because Nairb CAN'T manipulate himself to the extent that Nightmare does, nor does he have a legion of creatures under his control, and Narib can be a BIT more elloquent. And Nairb doesn't smoke...or always wear clothing...
oh wow! i don't know how i got hacked into this...
NAME: KANON AGE: 20 M
joins the Nightmare Tournament for the fun of it. He loves being challenge He has a major issues against Marcky >> ~Oh-FeelShy 's character. Though very Athletic and Smart. He's still HUMAN. The armband serves as a shape-shifting weapon (look at character sketch... and no! that's only for LULZ). Power of Champions LOL!
he'll be closer to death for everytime he uses the arm band given by Nightmare (Kanon is purely human so he wouldn't survive, so in exchange for power... he will slowly die for everytime he uses his power). He's Mr. Popular who doesn't show a bad side... until Marcky comes along @w@ (he really hates Marcky
A NOTE FOR MY OPPONENTS IN THE NIGHTMARE TOURNAMENT: The Gorger you will be fighting lacks a bond with Gregor, as Gregor has not been born yet.
The Gorger you will meet will evolve as time passes.
Round One: Indistinct, slightly blurry, lacking forehead gems, aura of menace, knife Round Two: More distinct, has knife and aura. No forehead gems. Round Three: Fully Formed, with knife, aura and forehead gems.
At no time will he have his minions or monster form, unless you decide that he should gain enough energy during your entry to have such things for the first time.
WHEN GORGER DIES: He is uncreated. This involves a very specific visual aid. Starting with his head, his body empties, leaving only the outline and a blank emptiness within. He makes a speech bubble that is also completely empty. Then, when his body is a completely empty outline, the whiteness disappears, leaving only the outline, then that too is gone. DON'T FORGET IT.
My favorite character Gorger's back story, physical description, and powers.
Compiled and fleshed out while listening to When You're Evil by Voltaire, Such Horrible Things by Creature Feature, Stepfather Factory by El-Producto, Clickety Clack by Sage Francis, Inside The Fire by Disturbed, and Harvester Of Sorrow by Metallica. You should, too.
People seem to enjoy drawing this guy. If you need more of a visual reference, just look here: [link]
A NOTE FOR ANY ANIMATORS I MIGHT HAVE TO FACE:
Anybody ever wonder what Gorger sounds like? The closest comparison in real life is Mike Patton. If you don't know what THAT sounds like, play The Darkness videogame. Mike Patton is the voice of The Darkness. LISTEN HERE: [link]
A note to my opponents in any OC Contests, the preview picture seen at the top of this here page is my favorite and by far the most accurate to my mind. So, yeah. If you wanted my opinion, there it is.
Current preview picture courtesy of . Praise him! [link]

Gorger's theme song is "I Will Wait For You" by Connie Francis.
