[Cybele and Dad]
Name: Cybele Clay
Appearance: Her guild mark is on her left hand.
She is a pleasant and friendly young lady, even a bit flirty and coy, if somewhat rough around the edges and unwilling to endure any non-sense from anyone. She has quite a tongue when it comes to insults. She is quite rebellious and has major issues with authority figures. Like her dad, for instance. She is a girl with a lot of drive and big ambitions. She wants to make it big in this world. She loves to fight, and she does not fight cleanly either. She is bright and she has no compunction about lying. Her drive and ambition tends to make her envious of those who do well. She has quite a temper and when she gets mad, it is not pretty. She has a strong artistic bend ,mingling nicely, if somewhat destructively, with her strong individualism.
Her story is a boring one. She was home educated. Her dad brought her up alone, his wife having passed away before Cybele could remember her. He was a mage, you see, though Cybele has never been quite sure what kind of magic he performed. He was infuriatingly opaque about the subject. A good magician does not reveal his tricks, he would say. She agreed. She also never revealed to anyone her little tricks. He gave her a complete education, from mathematic to etiquette. He would make her into a perfect lady, the pinnacle of culture and refinement.
The problem was that she was bored. So bored. As she grew older she could barely endure the long days spent inside the family mansion. It was richly decorated and ornate, almost baroque, but it was also empty. Her contact with the outside world was carefully monitored and filtered by her Dad, who seemed to believed that it may contaminate her. Perhaps he believed her too fragile for the outside world? She certainly didn’t feel very fragile. She was in fact incredibly strong. At twelve she could already life her old man of his feet and into the air. Was it her lack of human contact beyond himself? Well, that was a bit of a conundrum, don’t you think? After all, he is the reason she has not stepped outside yet. Was he afraid that she would do
something rash and get hurt?
Well, perhaps he was not completely wrong on that account.
After all, this is the girl who joined a Guild devoted to the elimination of evil in the world, fighting against the nastiest of nasty.
She had planned her evasion for almost half a year. That fantasy haunted her mind day and night as she prepared to escape the stifling parental concern of her father. Although he had a strong control over the literature she could and could not read, he felt it necessary that she should do reading of her own in her spare time. When she was not drawing, or sculpting in the basement, she would read newspapers (Dad could not resist reading the journals) and history books, and other fictions. He did not have much going in the way of fiction or the sort beyond the classical prose which he made her read. While full of fantasy, it was also full of text that hit you in the head like a sack full of bricks. Her mother, though, seemed to have been a fan of lighter fares, and Dad seemed to have been unable to get rid of the memento, doing his best to put it out of her girl’s reach. She was not deterred. She reveled in them in her spare time, unbeknownst to him. She became much more willing to deceive, even if her Dad thought her to never lie. The plan proceeded smoothly, impeccably in fact. It would have worked, too, if it wasn’t for the fact that joining the Guild also meant
you had to sign a release form. She could lie of course, but she didn’t have any proof that she was indeed an adult. If she wasn’t an adult, or show that she was without guardians, she would not be allowed join. Also, they contacted her Dad. He came to pick her up, shocked and angry. She was dragged kicking and screaming from the lobby.
From this point on she no longer bothered to hide her animosity toward her life and him. The next three weeks were incredibly unpleasant. Neither side seemed willing to concede. And yet he did. With a certain look of resignation, but also, she thought it surprising, amusement but also deep interest, he allowed her to enrole in the Guild. And she did just that. Unbeknownst to him, she had big dreams for her own life, and she felt, in a picture of the world fed by the adventures and deeds of the heroes of the past, that she could make it to the top if she became one of the top mage of this world. And what better way to this than by fighting evil?
Mage Rank: C-rank, more like :C rank.
Earth Make/Geomancy – she can manipulate the element of Earth. She can also shape it in various shape and form, whether decorative or utilitarian, not unlike a sculptor.
Earth Make - Stone Ocean: she can turn the consistence of the ground into a liquid form. To her opponents it is like quicksand, for her it is like water to a shark. A landshark.
Earth Make – Entombment: huge slabs of rock erupt from around her opponent to imprison them. She can then collapse the raised earth or them or simply keep them prisoner.
Earth Make – Idol; Model 1: she can shape animated idols made of earth. Model 1 are well-rounded fighter, about 6 foot tall and with the constitution of
a strong adult male of that size. They are fairly quick and pack a serious punch.They mostly use their fists, but they are also equipped with a black obsidian sword, but are otherwise not specifically designed for battle.
Earth Make – Idol; Model 2: an animated idol designed for defense. Big and cheery looking, it stands at about 8 feet, with large hands
and a round body. Think of a cross between Makuhita and Hariyama from Pokemon. It is fairly slow, but incredibly resilient. It also packs a nasty punch.
Earth Make – Stone Touch: she can turn organic matter into stone. She also has the power to undo it. Complete petrification does not
entail death, unless shattered.
Overdrive: Diamond is Unbreakable
Cybele ups the ante by transforming the Earth she is using into diamonds, upping the defensive and offensive capacities of her magic.
Sketchbook & Pen – so that she can draw or jot down
