[Cynical Saint]

I didn't know my parents. Sometimes I doubt the fact that I had parents at all. What I do know, for sure, is that life on the streets is not kind, regardless of how young and helpless you are. An orphan and a street-urchin, I stole and I got into fights often. It wasn't until I was beaten that I decided to reconsider my ways. I was seventeen when it happened, my opponent was stronger than I could ever imagine, and now, I know why. He was some sort of demon, a shadow-creature that no mortal boy should have to contend with. He beat me up pretty good, and if it wasn't for this old man that warded him off with some prayer, I wouldn't be here telling you this story. Anyway, the old man tells me that he's sorry I had to go through that, and he asked if I needed a place to stay. Apprehensive at first, I did end up going with the old man, to an old church in the slums of the city. On the outside, it didn't look like much, but inside, it was a citadel. That's what they called it, The Citadel, a place for humans that wanted to fight back against the demons and evil-doers of the world. At first, all I wanted was a place to stay for free and some food, but the old guy and some other "knights" as they liked to be called, decided that if I wanted to, they could train me to fight the bad guys. You know, make me a hero. ~After a long time spend considering it, I did finally decide to work with them, the Knights of Saint Cuthbert, as they called themselves. I could care less, as long as they teach me what I need to know to make this world right. A strong sense of justice, they said I have, and now I suppose it's true. So, for ten years I trained with them, learning how to wield my sword and my conviction against my enemies. At the age of twenty seven, they told me I was ready, to go out on my own and do good for humanity. I'm a modern knight, with a sword strapped to my back I fight evil. It's a pretty nice gig now that I think about it.

"Intelligent and wise beyond my years," they said, "with a strong moral compass and great strength of conviction." At first, I thought they were just trying to make me feel nice, but now, I suppose it is true. ~I'm headstrong and blunt about most things, I like to get the job done. ~Speaking of getting the job done. That's pretty much it, I cant really think of much else to say other than that.

Sword Master

     Sword Master: Standard

  • Weakness: Power in Item - Hard to Lose


"To slay my opponents, and the opponents of all that is good and just, I will master this art of swordsmanship." Roy's words echoed through the hallowed main hall of the citadel. ~"Good, then, let the training begin." the elderly man's voice retorted, echoing in it's somber, solemn tone throughout the hall.~That was ten years ago, when I was seventeen, beginning my training in the art of sword-combat. Since then, I've had various teachers, instructors and masters, all to teach me the simple method of slicing my opponents, and striking them down. A modern knight, with the skill and prowess to slay and demon, and purge any darkness that may befall the world. That was my goal, and I have achieved it. ~Wearing a leather jacket, torn blue-jeans and a t-shirt with "Nirvana" plastered on it's front, I wasn't really the archetypal medieval knight. Roy Flamberge, sword master, is my name, and I slay demons and dragons.


Zornhau, "Strike of Wrath"

     Slicing Attack: Standard

  • Armor Piercing
  • Multi-Attacks
  • Weakness: Power in Item - Hard to Lose


Zornhau, the so-called "Strike of Wrath," would be my attack. The slice I would use to slay my villainous opponents, to strike them down and deliver judgement onto them. Sounds cool huh?~Either way, during my time training with the old man and his entourage of knightly men/followers, I mastered Zornhau, and made it my own. It's fast, and simple, allowing me to make multiple attacks in a moment, and with my sword I find that with a little extra power I can pierce my opponent's defense with ease. No opponent can stop my offense, it may not be as powerful as a dragon's claw or a demon's fang, but my sword and my technique have the strength of justice, and that cannot be overcome. My strike of wrath, my Zornhau, is the most basic of techniques. But, that's why I like it. Simple, effective and straight to the point, just like me. It hasn't failed me yet, so, I'll continue to use it as my weapon in my crusade against evil.


Überlaufen, "Going Over"

     Counter-Attack: Standard

  • Weakness: Power in Item - Hard to Lose


Überlaufen, as they call it, also known as "Going Over," in my language, is the first of my truly special techniques. A counter-attack, imbued with holy power that allows me to do onto my opponent as they would onto me. Their strength becomes mind when I implement this technique, and my sword serves as a conductor for righteous justice, returning to my opponent, the damage they would do onto me. ~This power, it's the first semi-superhuman feat I've been taught, and I take great pride in mastering it's application. The elder knights are all proud and astounded that I learned it so quickly, and they think that with this technique added to my repertoire, I'll be able to stop opponents with strength nearly twice my own. They say the strength of this technique, is in the strength of my opponent. An attack on myself, a holy avenger, gives me the strength to strike back with equal force, using my sword to deal the fatal blow. It's cool. I look foreword to using it.


Absetzen, "Setting Aside"

     Reflection: Ultimate

  • Weakness: Power in Item - Hard to Lose
  • Weakness: Limited Uses - Multi-Use


The most zen thing I've ever heard, is the way they say this technique works. It's my first "super-power," and the elder knights say that with it, I can slay any opponent. It's a form of reflection, like my counter attack, but this technique allows me to halt my opponent's advance, to stop their attack and return it onto them. It truly is divine judgement. With this technique, empowered by holy might and righteous will I think I can stop any evil, no matter how foul. As long as I have my sword, I can reflect several powerful attacks with ease, though, because I haven't totally mastered it yet, I can only use it a couple times before I use up all my stamina and resign myself to defeat. They say I should use it wisely, and only when it's required. I couldn't agree more. Wouldn't want to end up out of energy before an enemy ready to dismember me piece by piece.
