Dante ViralliPlayer Informationplayer: Damiencontact: PM, or MSN Messenger: artemisjal@hotmail.comhow you found us: Pandora's Ladderother characters: Listed HereBasic Informationname: Dante Viralliage: 316gender: Malerace: Demonsexual orientation: Heterosexualserves: Ebelle Azukeclass: Chosen Spellswordoccupation: Former Silverpalm KnightPersonalityDante has a dark physical shell but is very different on the inside. His unique physical characteristic has caused him to look on life with an appreciation few experience. He has a strong moral guideline that can basically be summed up as this: all life is sacred, and should be protected. Those who violate this sanctity stain their own sanctity, and should be removed from society. Dante has no problem with killing those who take the lives of others, and is passionately violent when avenging those deaths. Very liberal in his beliefs, Dante cares for the individual over any one of their characteristics. He doesn't mind alternative lifestyles, and even accepts vampires so long as they are conservative enough in their feeding to not kill anyone.Though reserved and quiet, Dante isn't subservient to anyone and will express his believes whenever he feels the need to. Though he serves Ebelle and the King, he will only do so as long as they defend the ideals he sees as important. Dante is very driven and actively works to protect life in every way he can. He has very little use for frivolous things and has few friends because of his appearance and unsavory physical characteristics. This means he has a lot of free time, which he puts toward training, helping those in need, and serving in the military.Dante doesn't particularly hate either of his sisters, but is very aware that they are capable of doing truly horrific things. Upon learning that Kalush has some sort of plan to invade Meliora, he has retired from the Silverhand Order in order to commit himself to thwarting whatever evil plans she may have. He sees himself as partly responsible for her, as he is her brother. Upon learning of Dashinay's death, he was greatly saddened, mostly because he believed she could have redeemed herself.Dante loves his goddess, who is one of the few people in the world who have been able to see past his differences and embrace him for who he is. She is one of his few friends and he respects her immensely. He would give his life for her, not because he is so fanatic he has no regard for his own life, but because he believes she has a greater capacity to save lives than he does.Dante is never afraid to get his hands dirty, and is not the bleeding heart type of hero who worries that by killing evil people he is lowering himself to their standards. He will ruthlessly destroy someone who threatens the lives of others without blinking. A mage since the time Aikanaro, Dante has a very strong mind and is not easily deceived.Dante's greatest weakness is his impulsiveness and his ruthlessness. It is not uncommon for him to get himself involved in dangerous situations by not being careful enough. At times he can be much too rough with people, and can come across as cold even though he has a caring heart.Romance is not something Dante thinks about. Beauty is important to him, and he can appreciate the beauty of a pretty woman, or be attracted so a woman's personality. But he knows that his unique physical characteristics make an intimate relationship impossible, that contemplating such things would drive him to insanity. With the passage of years, it has become increasingly easy to ignore his sexuality.AppearanceHEIGHT: 6'2WEIGHT: 170BUILD: AthleticHAIR: Dark BrownSKIN: Green-tinted EYES: BlueFACE: AngularMOUTH: Thin lipsVOICE: Low BassPB: Ian Somerhalder Dante views his body as a weapon, and keeps it as well-honed as his sword. He is very muscular and athletic, and is by appearance the perfect warrior cliche. His vivid blue eyes are noticeably blue, but look very human and aren't unusual. He keeps his dark brown hair trimmed above his ears, and takes care to keep his face free of facial hair. It is his skin that marks him as a demon, as it is tinted with a noticeably green color. Should one examine his skin very closely, one would be able to see the faint outline of the small scales that cover his body. These scales are hard to the touch and are quite useful for defensive purposes. Dante's skin does not scar, it simply regrows its scales. If it did scar, he would have many crossing his body.Dante's face has very sharp, well defined features that could be considered handsome if one ignored his other unusual appearances - besides his unusual skin color and scales he also has a forked tongue that can extend about three inches out of his mouth. This tongue can taste and small very acutely. Dante can close his eyes and use the infrared-sensitive regions between his eyes and nose to see radiated heat.Equipped ItemsSilverpalm GauntletThis gantlet renders the wearer immune to 'friendly fire' from other mages of Ebelle. This does not protect against all magical fire - Athanhaer mages or Veshka's servants would be able to affect the wielder normally with magical fire. This does not protect against non-magical fire.Silverpalm CapeThis cape bears the symbol of Ebelle. It renders the wearer immune to non-magical fire.ArmorDante at times wears this polished suit of iron armor. It has no magical enchantments but was forged by Aikanaro and is very durable. It has held up well over the years, and has saved Dante's life many a time.Other ItemsEmbertongueAnother creation of Aikanaro's, Embertongue is the most potent magical items Dante has. It can burst into flame on command, but since Dante's power increased after becoming Ebelle's chosen the sword's fire became Sapphire Flame. Even if it is not commanded to burst into flame, the wielder can will the sword's blade to become extremely hot - even to the point where it can melt through metals. This sword can act as a focus for magical spells. If someone who is not a servant to the current Fire deity tries to pick this sword up, it will scald their hand unless they are wearing some sort of glove that protects against magical fire.HistoryDante was born a twin of his sister, Dashinay. Dante and Dashinay both had the potential to be the favorite child of their father, who all but ruled Harorcazgl, a frozen hell north of Meliora. They were in so many ways similar. Both had remarkable physical characteristics that were dangerous. Dashinay could elicit love from any who brushed against her mouth. Dante could kill with a touch. His father called him the perfect monster, but Dante soon realized that even though poison was his blood those around him were the ones truly tainted. Dante quickly realized that Harorcazgl was not his home, would never be. He was too damn moral for his own good. It was his curse that gifted him with the ability to see the importance of all life. Regardless of his sentiments, his father brought him up to be a warrior, a bodyguard, someone who would sit at his right hand and protect him. But fate turned Dante in a different direction.One day walking through his father's courtyard, he happened upon one of his father's captains beating a human slave. What his reason was, Dante never learned. He likely didn't even have one. All Dante knew was that moment he was watching, and the next his hands were throwing the captain to the ground - quite dead. His father would have brushed it off had this been only the first sign of Dante's radically different moral code. But his father would not tolerate such views among a child of his. He imprisoned Dante, but prison wouldn't hold Dante. A wayward breath dropped the demon guard walking past his cell. He fished the keys from the corpse and left the prison, left his family, left his homeland.No, not his homeland. Harorcazgl was his birthplace, but never his home. Dante found his home in Meliora, in the temple of Fire. Aikanaro was the first man he would call 'friend'. Dante worked as a soldier in his employ for several years before Aikanaro recognized that he had more than a strong pair of arms. Aikanaro offered Dante position as a mage, and Dante accepted gladly - thinking it fitting that one cursed with corruption such as he should wield an element that created purity. It was as a mage that he let go of his dark past once and for all, becoming a fierce warrior for justice and life.Dante was saddened when Aikanaro passed, but remained a mage under Imyae and served dutifully, though during her reign he spent less time in Hyrai and more time searching out destruction and killing those who destroyed. He never returned to Hyrai while Silas held the throne of Fire God, find the man displeasing. Still, Silas never removed his power - either because he didn't see the point of doing so or wasn't even aware of it. It was during this time that he found his sisters were also living in Meliora. He had no intention of seeing them again, but has kept tabs on them.When Ebelle became the deity of Fire, he returned to Hyrai again. In many ways, he became closer to her than any of her predecessors. He helped her create the Silverhand Knights, and worked as a knight in that division for a good while. During this time, Ebelle made him one of her Chosen, and as a result his power has grown. Recently, he has learned that his sister Dashinay was a rebel and was killed - but not after injuring a deity. He retired from the Silverhand Knights, at least temporarily, to track down Kalush - fearing that she has similar plans and feeling responsible for her since she's family.MagicDante has been a mage for almost two centuries. He is well familiar with fire magic and can channel it with relative ease. When he was made Ebelle's Chosen, he experienced an increase in power but has quickly adapted to his newfound powers. He is so in tune with the nature of fire - the purity as well as the destruction - that he is in some ways a bit of a prodigy. He is currently the only fire mage in Meliora with the ability to use 'cold' fire magic in the form of lightning.Speed of FlameCombined with his demonic strength, this speed allows him to move around in his plate armor as quickly as if he was wearing no armor at all. This can be quite unsettling. Without the armor on, he can match the speed of a sailfish.Cold FireDante has the rare ability to generate lighting. It is very similar to the ability all mages have to produce fire. Where most fire mages convert the gasses that make up air into the plasma of fire, Dante can speed this process up and increase the temperature at which this happens. This creates the plasma lightning instead of fire. Dante refers to this as cold fire - where as most fire magic is full of passion and life, lightning is emotionless and deadly. It is quite difficult for Dante to aim lightning, and if he does not release it fast enough it could harm him or even be fatal.SunskinDante can transform his body into the different types of fire he can wield. This can be anywhere from the least dangerous red fire he can produce to the extremely hot sapphire fire. He can also transform himself into lightning for a very short amount of time. It is incredibly dangerous, but is useful for traveling long distances in a short amount of time. One he has become lightning, he has no control over his course. He must 'aim' his course before becoming lightning.Unusual CharacteristicsDante's very essence is that of poison. He has two different types of poison producing glands within his body as a result of his demonic heritage. His skin is poisonous enough to cause discoloration and bruising almost instantaneously, and if touched for several minutes in a row could induce seizures or vomiting. Beings with immortal lifespans seem to have some minor natural resistance to this effect. Even his breath is poisonous - but only to other demons. This poison is a powerful anesthetic. Upon inhalation it can cause the affected to loose consciousness within seconds. This effect can last from 3-10 minutes, depending on the vitality of the person. However, repeated exposure to his breath would cause someone to develop an immunity to all other types of poison in his body. If this happened, and one made physical contact him repeatedly or for prolonged amounts of time, they would become just as poisonous as he.Certain characters with natural or gradually built upon resistances to poison may be able to resist the effects of his poison almost entirely, but would still likely feel nauseous at his touch.This characteristic makes it extremely hard to interact physically with others, and is the main reason he has given up all thoughts of romance. Being so composed of poison, exposure to an antidote of any poison would affect Dante's body as if he had been poisoned. The only cure for being exposed to an antidote would be to expose himself to whatever poison the antidote counteracts.It should be noted that there is an antidote for his poison, distilled mandrake roots taken orally will counteract the poison's effect within seconds..headertitle { font-size: 20px; font-family: georgia, georgia; color:#907272; letter-spacing:5px; text-transform: lowercase; display: block;}.text {text-align: left; width: 100%;}.headertitle:first-letter { font-size: 72px; font-family: Edwardian Script ITC, cambria, georgia; color:#820000; letter-spacing:-5px; text-transform: uppercase; font-style: none; display: block; }.open { font-size: 17px; font-family: georgia, georgia; color:#907272; letter-spacing:5px; text-transform: lowercase; display: block; text-align: center;}.text {text-align: left; width: 100%;}#postblock { color: #907272; background-transparent; border: 0px solid #000000; width: 460px; padding: 2px; font-size: 12px; font-family: calibri, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; vertical-align: middle; -moz-border-radius: 15px; font-weight: none;background-image:url('http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g133/artemisjal/blacklesser.png');}#cannon { color: #907272; background: #000000; border: 1px solid #000000; padding: 2px; font-size: 12px; font-family: calibri, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; vertical-align: middle; -moz-border-radius: 15px; font-weight: mpme; background: url('http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g133/artemisjal/blacklesser.png') no-repeat; width: 370px; overflow: hidden; text-align: left;}#cannon b {color: #DBB3B3;}#cannon u {color: #DBB3B3;}#postbox { color: #907272; background-transparent; border: 1px solid #000000; padding: 2px; font-size: 11px; font-family: calibri, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif; vertical-align: middle; -moz-border-radius: 15px; font-weight: mpme; background-image:url('http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g133/artemisjal/blacklesser.png'); width: 470px; overflow: hidden;}

I believe I am finished with this. Some help reviewing it would be nifty.

I realize that this character has a notable amount of power, so if any aspect of it gives you concern pertaining to the magic/demon system in Meliora, please let me know so I can resolve it. At least I didn't give him the "Hulk smash!" ability as I was inclined to when Photoshopping his skin to be green. wink.gif

I believe I have worked out the kinks with his poison ability, and since no one's commented on anything else I think he's ready to go!

This Character has been Accepted!
Please let me know if you spot any other problems with this application so that I can fix it!
