Nickname(s): (none)

Current Residence: Within the Subtle Planes (usually in the Astral or Physical Planes)

Hair Color: crimson with 3 black streaks on the left side.
Hair Type: straight and glossy, usually looks layered a little below shoulder length.
Skin Colour: light french grey with violet undertones
Physical Description: Check out close up of clothing here

Grae takes on a somewhat human form, but his skin usually stays a disturbing grey colour with dark circles around his eyes. He has no tongue in his mouth and the words that emanate from him sound hollow and unnatural, like an ominous wind. The voice is probably made through some kind of magic or control of the howling energy inside of him. He doesn't usually need to enunciate words through his lips, so when he "speaks" it looks very unnatural (almost like mimicry or poor lipsyncing!). If one looks closely, they will also realize he has no ears (it's just a smooth, darkened patch of skin instead).

The clothes he has on himself is actually his body shifted to look like he has clothing. What he wears usually resembles his demonic form in some way.

When he changes into demon form, his horns burst out of his head, leaving trails of blood on them and his face. His irises will widen to cover his whole sclera, making his eye look black with a gold slit pupil in the centre. His shoulders, hands, and hips seem to be covered in scales or spines, and many of his joints have protruding spines on them as well. His tail is prehensile and he is able to control it to whip people or pick up items.

His body and skin feels dense and somewhat otherworldly, like malleable granite or soft sand in a fixed structure. It is actually made of materials/atoms gathered from the environment mixed with the power of his demonic spirit and magic. His body is therefore a lot like a shell surrounding a demonic force that isn't quite part of the physical plane.

Alignment: COE - Chaotic-Offensive-Evil: The Psychopath

General Personality: Grae comes off as chaotic and destructive, doing as he pleases for his own amusement. He has no respect for authority and pretty much disregards any rules or laws. He can be aloof and flamboyant, but generally comes off as playful and arrogant with a sinister twist. He is difficult to read and reason with due to his chaotic and selfish nature. Even people who try to befriend or ally with him usually end up backstabbed in some way.

For a demon such as himself, the greatest joy is having freedom; the ability to do whatever he wants for whatever reason with no one hindering him or telling him otherwise. Therefore, the greatest sorrow for him is to be imprisoned or be tied down with consequences. Though nothing fazes him much and he usually has a cocky demeanour, mention of his past imprisonment and current oppression under a curse greatly irritates him. He suffers from momentary bouts of insanity or confusion possibly as a side effect to the long confinement period he had. Although he can feel pain, it does not faze him. He recognizes it as pain and "damage", but it doesn't link with the emotional aspect (of fear or shock or panic) like it would in most humans.

He generally nourishes himself on strong emotions in the environment, whether euphoria, rage, terror, or despair. Due to this, he likes spending time in hectic and chaotic environments where the stress causes beings to react in intense ways. Mass hysteria and confusion is probably his favourite emotion to feed from. If he's running low on mana and energy, and there is not a strong supply of emotions to power him (due to not having anyone around to troll or something), he may instead start trying to gorge on foodstuffs, even though this is very inefficient and barely converts into energy for him.

Good Traits: self-assured, intelligent, not easily fazed, energetic, playful, curious/experimental
Bad Traits: sinister, destructive, cruel, cocky, selfish, disregards consequences, amoral/immoral, corrupted mind (bouts of insanity), trolls, untrustworthy

Quirks: easily distracted by opportunities for fun (even if he's already having fun), may gorge on food and drink if he's feeling drained due to low environmental emotions even though it not very effective in restoring him, can be overcome by bouts of insanity (may be curse-related)
Hopes: to have a lot of fun destroying things and getting them twisted, to break free from all consequences
Fears: being locked away for all eternity (or a long period of time) again, confronting the entity that punished him

Memorable Quote(s):
- Let's see..

Closest Friends: none! Though he mockingly refers to Sage and Mint as his friends since they inadvertently freed him.
Enemies: anyone that wants to hold him accountable for anything he does (mostly any hero)
Girlfriend(s)/Boyfriend(s): none. I don't think he really has a concept of these things in relation to himself.

Power(s): He will usually fight physically even though he's not completely adept at doing so because while his magic is very potent, it has major drawbacks on himself.

Grae has a powerful ability to locally lock or merge dimensions (space-time and subtle planes) together. This leads to chaotic and random effects, usually destructive to anything and anyone in the vicinity because existence collapses on itself. This entanglement is a corruption that is very difficult to undo, and will usually leave whatever he entangled crippled. His power to do this used to be on a much higher and destructive level, able to destroy the very gods themselves. However, he has since been locked with a curse that causes this skill to be a double-edged sword. Although he is able to endure and reverse minor negative effects on him, the potential for causing himself great suffering makes him limit his use of this ability.
Some effects of a person: general damage, death, skills being sealed, corruption of mind/soul/spirit, change destiny, crippled in some way, thrown to a different dimension, imprisoned in limbo
PROS: Powerful and destructive, leading to chaos for anything he uses it on. Has the potential to wreck havoc on entire worlds and dimensions, even disabling gods. Can also be used in small ways to prank and cause general chaos.
CONS: Uses more energy the more entangled/locked he wants to forge things together. Due to the curse locked on him, whatever he locks will lead to a random lock on his own body. The difficulty in coming out of a lock is the same level as the one he places. If he were ever ambitious enough to lock away an entire world or god again, he would likely lock himself away for centuries.

Form Shifting:
Grae can change his body structure so that it looks physically different. This means he can form clothing and other physical features to disguise himself or just show off. The physical extensions are still part of his body. If they are damaged, he is damaged. Being in a form similar to his demon form reduces the amount of concentration he has to hold and the amount of energy it takes.
PROS: looks however he wants~!
CONS: drains mana over time, takes concentration especially if form is very different from demon form, if extraneous parts get damaged his actual body gets damaged

Dimensional Phasing:
Grae's body is not exactly normal and he is able to easily phase into other dimensions, especially the different states in the Physical Plane and lower levels of the Astral Plane (see here for more info: ). By entering in and out of different planes, Grae can "shortcut" to places, making it look like he's teleporting.
PROS: Easily escape and also ambush people.
CONS: It's not as instantaneous as he would like (takes a few seconds to complete), and it takes a lot of energy to phase or break into more heavily guarded planes. His body is weakened between phasing because it is split/dissolved as he phases, so phasing leaves him open for attack. Being severely disrupted during phasing by being attacked may cancel his phasing, cause him to go into an unintended plane, and generally makes reassembling his body take longer.

Weapon(s): None. He just uses his body and tail usually.
Style: Melee fighting usually, since using his magical skill can cripple himself as well. He's not totally proficient at physically fighting, but he has high defence and good strength, and his body and tail could easily damage and slash through leathers and hides (and humans~!). He can phase to escape if he ever gets bored or doesn't like how the battle is going. Though it's just as likely for him to phase back to ambush a person.
Strengths: Powerful and destructive, and anyone that knows about his skills will be rightfully afraid.
Weaknesses: Greatly hindered by the curse locked on him so that he can't use his powers without a backlash. Phasing too much will leave him weakened and exposed. He also doesn't make allies or friends, so he'll usually be fighting alone.

Grae was an ancient demon who was released into the universe when a great event caused the Subtle Planes to become locked. Grae then tried to future-proof and guarantee his freedom by destroying or locking away beings he thought could hinder his freedom. He then continued on his way to destroy and befoul whatever he wanted.

One entity he locked away and bound for aeons eventually regained freedom, arising as Nemesis. As reprisal for his deed against her, she punished and imprisoned him for aeons. One day in a spell misfire by Ennes, a rift to Grae's prison opened and he was able to regain his freedom. However, to his great horror, he found himself still bound in chains of fate, holding him to consequences he before could hardly comprehend.

He eventually tested and learned the limits of his abilities and continued to have fun with his newfound freedom. He's currently buzzing around Sage and Mint, thinking that whatever they did the last time could be replicated to help him break out of his other bonds and curses. Of course, this means that he's wrecking havoc around them and becoming a great source of anguish for everyone in the SGPA.

Villainous Motivations:
Grae is a true demon that revels in the chaos he causes. Suffering and hysteria is amusing to him, so he likes causing it. It's pretty simple. He has no true goal besides continuing to be free to do whatever he wants, and he generally doesn't care what anything thinks.

65 points?! dat stamina and willpower
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Hahha yesss!
I have maybe 4 characters that have maxed out their possible points because they serve as supervillains or as rarely used mentors. xD
criticU Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist
Without a tongue, is he still able to pronounce certain words, and clearly, also the fact where the tongue helps siliva in your mouth stay in your mouth, I am aware that he is a demon, but the question is still there.

by merging or locking dimension, how is that particularly damageable. Is it like space manipulation or such?

Wait do you think he can have dimensional awareness and knows he just a character for a small group. Like deadpool?

He is a demon so when he shifts does he have to know how the humans look from the inside to match organs needed or it just by appearance?

Hi long time no hear, have a fun Christmas?
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah~! I was waiting for someone to ask that!
I figured since he's a demon, he's a bit like a ghost. I don't know how ghosts/spirits make sounds either "scientifically", but it would be similar to that. He doesn't actually enunciate words with his lips or anything, but "sound" seems to come out of him, which is why his voice sounds hollow, kind of like an echo through a cavern.

Honestly, I have a hard time thinking about it since it's so abstract, but yeah, it's like space manipulation but more complex? Like he could collapse a small part of regular space together with the astral plane or something, causing a rift to appear in both planes or maybe it would explode due to some incompatibility/fusion reaction or maybe tings would get "caught" like a gravity well or maybe nothing.. it would just be a stuck point. Locking a dimension just might mean it's not accessible for others. So say a person that draws magic power from the astral plane or something might get cut off if he locks it from them.

Yeah~ Since he's a dimensional kind of traveller, he has more fourth wall awareness than most, I think. xD But that means he kind of hates me because I am controlling him in some way. lol

He has a basic understanding that humans and other physical creatures are usually are full of.. guts? >_> But he doesn't shift to have the same things because he really only cares about the outside appearance (and even then, he still doesn't look fully human lol). I think he technically COULD make organs too, but that would require a lot more concentration and attention to detail.. and for what reason.. to pass through airport x-rays and looks human? lol I think he's probably hollow or just a whirl of energy on the inside anyway. No bones.

Christmas was pretty quiet, but I enjoyed it! XD A lot of it was spent online and doodling though. Haha.. so it was business as usual for me.
How was your holiday? Get anything really cool?
criticU Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist
So then how does he pronounce words and such? If he only sort breathes out the words...

I see, I get it, that is actually something I read for space manipulation XD. So basically he can "Adding an empty space over a section of matter-occupied space, causing an overlap and effectively erasing them from existence" sort of thing but with dimensions?
But does that mean he is able to see the connection. Like he can cut off the speed force from teh flashes.

lol right, He would murmur bad things about you in the comics or rp XD.

okay, just wondering. Though does your demon have an ability to adapt well to any environment? so that how he can stand human environment or something like that.

I got nothing worth mentioning ^^, I spend my few days after christmas being lazy and having to make cookies that my mom's friend gave her. that is the fact that its sugar cookies, their are about 4 packages, and its bothersome to make >.>
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh.. and I love sugar cookies.. @___@ ANd shortbread cookies.
How about you make me some too! LOL
I got a bunch of chocolates for Christmas instead. XD
criticU Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist
come to hawaii if you want some them XDD just beware that they can be maybe undercooked XD
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Like, I said.. probably the way ghosts and spirits can "talk"? XD Magic? Hahaha~ It's not telepathy, I don't think. But whatever energy or wind inside of him can make sounds to make words. Maybe it's like a speaker/radio. Energy just transforms into sound waves instead of using air pressure against vocal cords.

Yeah! Very similar to that!
I think he can see connections, but he doesn't really know what the connections are. But maybe if the speed force looks like a giant glowing aura around the flashes, it would look like a good target to go for! So yeah, potentially, he could lock it, but that's a pretty vital thing, and would lead to him jamming up his own powers or something.

That's right! In fact, maybe he caused my second monitor to die just yesterday while I was planning to draw and colour him! ;___;

Yeah, I think whatever his body is made of doesn't really need any kind of nourishment, and it's mostly held together by magic anyway. I think his spirit or essence just gathers whatever materials are around in that dimension to create for him a physical body when he phases into that dimension. And the human environment is kind of peaceful without hazardous magic and radiation exploding everywhere, so he doesn't need to adapt much. If he had to go to a high energy place like the sun or a volcano, I thin he would have issues maintaining a physical form if the environment keeps attacking against him. XD
criticU Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist
so, he is just like a ghost though don't ghosts have tongues? XD too bad if you don't believe in him he can't go away. Sorry if this subject is starting to get annoying.

does he have to catch them or something to make his powers work? Like touching them and such.

maybe he did, beware, he might be able to come here to the real world because you gave him powers of a great demon XDD

ah I see XD. Though would his form disrupt if he near someone who uses a different kind of energy? Like Klarion since I'm assuming it is more sensitive to teh environment kind of thing.

What would happen if more than one emotion is present? does that have any affect on him (should I be calling him an it XD?)

Where does he even get his human clothes form from? Since it looks not from the time if he was released recently.

its scary how much will power he has because if he is really into wanting to kill someone or hurt them it could end up really bad XDD.
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
They don't have real tongues though~! It's all fake ghostly tongues to trick you into thinking they are still human! XD

Yeah. I think they at least have to be very near him for him to make it work. Otherwise he'll just disrupt something else instead. But I think it's possible that if someone is doings something like astral projection, he can go into the astral plane and mess them up from there instead of having to find their real body.

I will have to invoke the name of the goddess who trapped him to make him go away! Hopefully he will not just be more enraged and do something worse. LOL

He has a kind of high fortitude, so he should be okay for a while, but yeah, of Klarion's using a huge amount of energy that drains it from the environment, his body will get disrupted or be hard to hold together. Since he feels a bit like sand, maybe he starts crumbling or dissolving a little.

Haha.. you can call him an it if you want. He don't mind. He just feeds on whatever emotions he wants as long as it's around in the environment. It's like a buffet to him. I don't think he likes happiness as much as panic and desperation though.. as a general "taste" thing. XD If there are people who feel strong emotions but "keep it inside" of themselves to be in control, it's not as available to him. They kind of need to really express it out in the open.

He probably looked into some kind of gothic/punk fashion magazines and thought it would suit him. XD He was probably running around in a t-shirt or winter clothes before that. Maybe he even looked more like a woman. lol

Yes. He just need to balance out how much of it he wants to take on himself! If he hates someone enough, would he trade in some of his freedom? XD This decision-making probably drives him crazy, actually.
criticU Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2013  Hobbyist
hey that could be true XDD

Ah I see, so powerfully scary, does that mean he can hurt ghosts?

oh btw does that mean that goddess doesn't exist anymore? The one that trapped him.

just thinking about his face cracking and hes extremely pissed could be frighting XD lol

hmm, can it be like venom where strong feelings can affect his judgement?

does that mean hes indecisive with life decisions XD?
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes! He should be able to hurt ghosts too! I'm sure most ghosts don't want to hang around him either.

Oh, she came back and punished him as revenge, so she still exists. But she's kind of changed ever since he first locked her away.

Yeah.. that is a good visual. When he gets filled with rage or going insane, maybe his physical shell looks like it's cracking and about to burst open. XD

Yes, I think his judgment lapses a lot, especially if he's raging because he is reminded of his imprisonment or the goddess.

XD Depends on what you even mean by life decisions! lol Since he doesn't even have long-term goals really. He usually does things on a whim.

He will destroy and kill but somehow no one will want to take him seriously. xD Maybe that is the best power of all though. lolol
Atey Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
Hah, I think is a very interesting detail that he doesn't have a tongue... and now that I look him again... he reminds me a lot of Juste Belmont from Castlevania xD
Meibatsu Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh ahh.. I'll take that as a good thing since I really like Ayami Kojima's art. *__* I want to try to do a painting like her stuff one day!
