Eternal Flame - Devil bio by XD-385 Eternal Flame - Devil bio by XD-385
Picture uploaded with permission from :iconjuug: Seriously, you've really outdone yourself this time.:highfive:


Ash Ketchum's incarnation in Rukario Romance, he is the direct descendent of Ashton Redford Crimson and his servant, Zandria. Like Ashton, Ash harbors the Eternal Flame within him. But due to inbreeding with humans, Zandria's descendents' Zangoose traits became more recessive until the only sign of their heritage became a pair of Z-shaped markings under their eyes. This means that Ash is part Zangoose, making it somewhat ironic that he is a Pokemon Trainer when he is part Pokemon himself. But he does not learn of his origins until meeting his ancestor Zandria, who was residing in the world of the living as a specter.

Ash does not harness the power of the Eternal Flame until he is brought to the verge of death when defending his family from the notorious Blackflame Five. As his life began to slip away, his hatred for the Blackflame clan's Alpha male Thanatos combined with an intense desire to protect his children and lover caused Ash to become consumed by the Eternal Flame and his suppressed Zangoose instincts.

When the Eternal Flame becomes active, Ash's Zangoose traits go from recessive to dominant. His eyes become the exact same shape and color of a Zangoose's while his Z-shaped markings become bolder and longer. The one under his left eye even creeps up over his eyelid like the pink marking that covers the left eyelid of every Zangoose. His teeth grow fangs while a pair of claws extend from both hands like those of a Zangoose. He keeps his legs bent to simulate the short legs of a Zangoose while a thick bushy tail composed entirely of flames forms at his back. This tail is found to be solid and can interact with solid objects. A shroud of flames compacts around Ash's body and molds into the form of a Zangoose, completing the form with ears on top of his head and a thick tail. This layer of flames acts like a second skin and has the feel of fur. But Ash can decide who the flames harm, as shown when Lucy embraces him when she pleads with him to not attack the Blackflame Five, but is not burned by his shroud of flames despite being in direct contact with it.

Ash's personality in this state becomes one of extreme sadism as he takes great pleasure in killing his victims in the most painful way possible, which is induced by the raw destructive will of fire and the cunning and bloodthirsty nature of a Zangoose. He even develops a taste for flesh while in this state, as he cooks and eats Hawkeye's heart after tearing it from his body by his teeth. Even more shocking is that Ash shows no qualms about attacking those, even his own family, who get between him and those who he has identified as his prey, which he displays when he inflicts a deep cut on Ashton's face and very nearly kills Lucy when she attempts to try and talk him out of killing their attackers. Even so, he has no desire of harming his friends and family on his own will, which he shows when he frequently exclaims during their duel that he will make Thanatos suffer for all the lives he had taken and for all the neglect and pain that he had forced onto Ruby as a child.

Ash's abilties in this state are quite varied. He shows astounding agility and speed, but seems to prefer fighting on all fours and is even very proficient at running at high speed while on all fours. Ash has access to the entire moveset of a Zangoose and can use all Fire type attacks in existence. He is also able to extend a massive rope of fire like Ashton can from his hands which can then lasso objects like a rope, or act as a long arm to grab things with. Ash does not seem able to unleash the dreaded Crimson Blossom, but he hardly needs it as his claws are able to wreck havoc on anything he chooses.

Due to his extremely sadistic nature and lack of concern for the wellbeing of the environment and people around him while being empowered by the Eternal Flame, Ashton has named Ash as the ultimate antithesis to himself. Where Ashton is known as the Angel of the Eternal Flame, Ash has been labeled the Devil of the Eternal Flame.:devilish:

Shouldn't he be hating the Seviper of the world if he's part Zangoose?

EXCELLENT!!! :)

And the chapter was great too. On a side note, this actually makes sense as far as the show is concerned, at least in my own twisted little mind . Looking forward to the next installment.

Man, you did an awesome job. It reminds me of when Ash turns evil and when Naruto goes Kyubii. I also like the dark night with the red stars. One question though, what are those black spikes on his hands? Anyway, I like the shading and claws too.

He doesn't have an inner demon. Just a dormant power.

Yeah, he does look sadistic. When I read the last chapter in Rukario Romance it was somewhat freaky how brutally he disposed off all the members of The Blackflame Five.

However Ash does have some control during this maddened form right?
I mean since Lucy wasn't harmed he must im assuming, also how he spared Pearl would prove that id believe.

However never the less, his title suits him...literally has the heart of a demon in that form, who would've guessed Ash of all people could become like this. I suppose if what your protecting is worth it enough anyone could become full of enough rage to protect it.

But yep, he certainly is the Devil of The Eternal Flame.

Hopefully he gains control of its occurences before he hurts one of his friends..

Before mention of Zangoose traits, I believed that Ash's form was influenced by the Kyubi. And it would make perfect sense, as you are influenced by Naruto.

The Nine-Tailed Fox's name is "Kyuubi" not "Kyubi".

I'll say it again. Naruto did NOT play a part in the creation of Ash's Eternal Flame powers. The resemblence between the two is pure coincidence.
