I'm an Irish animation student hoping to one day become a professional animator, I mainly draw original art when I have some free time and the odd animation here and there which I hope to do more frequently in the future.

Name: Aengus “Balor” Admere
Species: Fomorian: They are basically demonic gods of chaotic aspects of nature. (Also Undead)
Age: Ancient, never bothered counting.
Height/Weight: 6’4”/195cm - 194lbs/88kg
Reason for entering:
His real reason is to attempt to destroy the fountain of eternal life. His given reason is to test his abilities in the tournament and keep others from obtaining the vial as he is so strongly against immortal life.
A skilled warrior:
Aengus was born and raised as a warrior from ancient times, as a result, he is skilled with most types of weapons. As such he is more so a jack of all trades never mastering a certain weapon type. The only exception and his most skilled weapon type are glaives, but he refrains from using them due to events from his past.
As Aengus is essentially a walking corpse, he can take all types of damage and remain standing, things like being set on fire doesn’t bother him as he eventually is just a burning skeleton. By extension, he can’t be affected by poisons or things that affect him emotionally like charms or general magic as he lacks the hormones in his body that dictate things like that. While straight in his life, his un-life has made him asexual. This also extends to him not being able to be put to sleep, as he can’t physically sleep.
Aengus is the Fomorian of Death as such he essentially the God of Necromancy in his world, but he never uses it to raise the dead or anything he considers “Evil Necromancers” do. He can use necromancy to enhance his own soul to surround certain parts of his body or objects being held to strike people with his soul looking like vibrant orange colored flames surrounding the body part/weapon dubbed “Soul Brawling”. Doing so does no physical damage as it is striking someone’s souls directly which causes disorientation as the person’s soul is bounced around their body. He also uses necromancy to manipulate his flesh allowing him to restore damage to his body, but this takes up large amounts of energy and while healing he can feel, due to not feeling in so long he is very sensitive, so it is a horrifically painful experience.
Irish Mythology Origins:
As Aengus is based heavily off Irish Mythology, he considers some of the most bizarre and crazy things mundane. Always having bizarre stories to compare to chaotic situations which seem even more ridiculous. For example, “Girl problems huh? Yea I knew a guy with a similar issue. Last I heard he jumped into a lake and turned into a fish. To be fair it’s what anyone would have done in his situation.” But it also means he can do weird and bizarre things which are mundane things to him and he believes it's something anyone “normal person” can do. For example, picking up a boulder with ease using only one hand, or casually jumping great heights. The reason for this is the mentality gained from being so ancient, it’s his perception of reality which allows him to manipulate the world in such a way. But as a result, he can’t affect others in such a way directly, so he couldn’t punch someone with the same strength required to pick up a boulder with one hand. But it doesn't mean he can't just hit someone with a thrown boulder instead.
Aengus is a show-off plain and simple, due to his nature the only way he can find a thrill in battle due to his un-life is by going over the top and stylish. Which can result in him making mistakes or taken advantage of him not taking things serious enough.
While being undead has its strengths there are more weaknesses, he can’t feel so if he is struck by surprise he mightn't even notice. This can lead to his body suffering damage he doesn’t notice whether from an attack or overexerting his body, like a damaged muscle which could give way at any moment possibly resulting in limbs falling off. He can’t eat, drink or sleep either but those don’t bother him that much. His body is also weaker, in general, resulting in the possibility of losing body parts much higher.
Running out of magical energy:
Aengus’s body runs on magical energy due to being undead, if he runs out, he will collapse and essentially be in a coma and become an ordinary corpse until enough energy is restored but if this were to happen that would be a KO in the tournament. As such if he uses his abilities, he will drain magical energy and the more power he puts into his abilities the quicker it drains. Making him like an endurance run, of trying to outlast him or force/trick him into using his abilities to drain his energy faster. The easiest way to put this is that if he was in an RPG his Health and Mana bars are the same bar.
Due to his nature Aengus usually just goes with the flow, but if someone isn't being extremely obviously trying to trick him he won't do anything to avoid it as long as he isn't being told to attack/harm someone else. As he would ask for their side of the story or refuse to harm a innocent. But that doesn't mean he won't fall for traps or tricks that directly harm him like being kicked down a pit, or even suddenly being stabbed in the neck mid-conversation.
Depending on the severity of his injuries it can be quick or take a minute or two to restore damage to his body. What is certain as when he is healing he is defenseless and the process is the only time he can feel so it is extremely painful meaning so he has to try and focus through the pain taking his full attention. This also results in Aengus letting out a howling scream in pain meaning it is extermely difficult to hide when doing so.
As at the end of the day Aengus is a walking corpse his body will never be in good shape physically in terms of how it is more vunerable to damage from attacks.
Aengus is a very happy guy considering he is a walking, talking corpse. As despite lacking the most basic mortal joys like being able to feel, taste or even sleep Aengus is never bothered by it. As mentioned, before he is very overconfident due to his nature as a Fomorian resulting in him tending to be more stylish and extravagant. Outside of combat while he does like to show off, for the most part, he is very calm and goes with the flow. As no matter whatever crazy or unexpected things, he may see it will never faze him. As from his past it is what he considers to be mundane. A darker side of Aengus is the fact is he is willing to do anything for what he considers to be for the betterment of all. For example, if put into a situation where he had to choose between the life of one over many and there wasn’t an alternative, he would kill that one person without hesitation or remorse.
As mentioned before with him fighting fair as in at equal level to his opponents he considers dirty trick as fair game in combat in his eyes. In rare cases, he could go all out but this is only if the individual was a horrible enough person or if things get serious enough. He only considers something serious if it’s something that would cause harm to others or his wife in a severe way and wouldn’t be easy to stop or avoid it. Aengus is also the type of individual that likes to “Help” people grow as individuals. This usually involves him pointing out their flaws to their face, this usually doesn’t end well.
Aengus is essentially the receptionist of the afterlife managing what would be considered the waiting room. Looking after each soul that comes through while they are awaiting their judgment. As it is a 24/7 job, he has a secondary body which lacks his full power that looks after things in the mortal realm trying to ensure the dead are properly buried and souls to pass on. Usually going after necromancers who he considered “Lost their way” by trapping souls and or creating undead.
As a result, after discovering the existence of the Labyrinth he believes it is his duty to keep anyone from obtaining immortal life. Sending out his secondary body to deal with it and attempting to ensure no one will ever drink from the fountain ever again. Also, despite being essentially a demonic god and the second oldest surviving god he is viewed mainly has a joke by his fellow gods because he never bothered trying to assert dominance or demonstrate his actual true ability, so they assume he is just a joke that sits at a desk all day and can’t do anything. As a result, having to deal with their teasing and mocking regularly.
Conversing, tea, “fair fights”, enthusiastic walks, kind individuals, his wife Cethlenn.
Evil necromancers, dragons, monstrous individuals, magic healers, his body getting severely damaged.
