Deviant Universe- Purgatory by MekanikalTrifle Deviant Universe- Purgatory by MekanikalTrifle
[UpDATE 1st Aug- Refined look, better art hell yes he looks good. Also, he now has a skull friend to remind him of AFL. And to talk to cause he has no friends.]

NAME: Unknown
ALIAS: Purgatory
AGE: Thought to be at least 500
HEIGHT: 5' 10 (w/boots)
________________________________________________________________________________________________
BIO: 
Hailing from another dimension entirely, set in another timeframe, he was a powerful vampire beyond the level most vampires would ever get to- his ability to charm and deceive was his main asset. But when one is an uber-powerful immortal undead with the whole of eternity at your fingertips...things get a bit out of proportion. 
In his unceasing goal to become all-powerful, he may have killed a whole city-worth of people with his overzealous use of atmospheric manipulation (we're talking seriously powerful here). Or maybe two. And the claiming he was the lord of the night was not doing him any favours.
Somewhere out there, some higher power, or perhaps demon, took offence to this cocky little undead vying for it's spot in the great big cosmic scheme of things. It did not like this one bit. So, with the assistance of a few other unnameable entities, and a couple of really well armoured avatars, they managed to restrain the lord of the night. Despite their cosmic status, these godlike beings technically couldn't take his powers away; he'd learned them all himself and thus were his to keep.
But what they could take was what he'd had forced upon him- his immortality.

Then they forced him out of that dimension for good measure, and left him to die a mortal. Unfortunately, they hadn't made him human. He was...something else. Living and breathing yes, but still not quite human. 
The land he awoke in was a warm one, and he got sunburnt. He hated it. He was alone and lonely.
He came to be a wanderer. So he was lost, he searched for a way to get back to his home. He missed the luxuries, and the comfort. Above all, he missed the safety of undeath. The fact he was now a finite mortal terrified him more than any vampire hunter ever could.  And also the fact that he was completely unknown in the land he now walked. 

Something else had been watching with some curiosity. A much softer voice came to him-it had been watching. It called him Purgatory, and it offered to help him reinstate his immortality and previous status, in return for a single soul.
This soul was in yet another dimension. And all he had to do was find and kill the owner of said soul and he'd get back what had been taken.

Unfortunately said voice couldn't actually tell him which person it was exactly.

Purgatory felt a little bit like himself again; he'd just have to kill whoever he thought was the one until he got it right.
And through the portal to the new dimension he went; the DU.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

POWERS:
Asides from slightly-above-human strength, reflexes, and senses, he has some remnants left of his insane amounts of vampire powers:

Mist Form-  He can take on a form like fog and slink under doors, escape, etc. Lasts for a few minutes. 

Mind over Matter- Part of being undead for so long has stuck with him; he can augment his own physical defence by sheer mental strength, via a type of psionic ability- this will tire him after a while, and doesn't stop piercing weapons/attacks, but rather blunt force injury, or collisions.

Superproximity- Using his supernatural abilities as a post-undead predator, Purgatory can move intensely quickly from one spot to another nearby one; he uses this to sneak up on and attack targets, or to get from place to place in a dangerous situation. Using this makes him tire very quickly if overused and he can seriously hurt himself if not careful. (When using this, he moves from one point to another in a straight line- can't change direction once he's started, and it's difficult to slow down.)

Manipulation- Purgatory can actually use his inherent vampiric 'seduction', or mind-alteration in short bursts- with this he can cause a short hypnosis- not long enough to control anyone, but enough to make them momentarily stop in their tracks. Will most often be used to avoid getting punched in the head.  

Unnatural Form- His most powerful physical talent is what's left of his vampire form- he can extend deadly claws from his fingers, and his teeth lengthen. Do not get bitten; it hurts, and the bite wound will have his saliva in it, which stops blood clots from forming and will keep the wound bleeding for longer than it normally would.

(Note- while these may sound ridiculously powerful, becoming a mortal has put a serious dampener on how he can use them, and other than his claws/teeth, use of them requires blood before use to pull off. Don't expect to see all the powers one after the other unless there's just been an absolute massacre.)
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

SUIT:
His bodysuit, which he's decided to put trousers and a scarf over, is actually a very high-tech piece of equipment that he took with him from the last dimension he got stuck in- also where he got his awesome bow.
The suit itself is an organic construct, and it moulds to it's wearer's body accordingly; it can also afford a number of defensive bonuses:

+Resistance to slashing attacks (blades/claws etc) The suit absorbs the force from attacks and spreads it more evenly- he may still be injured, but neither he not the suit will be cut. Just some painful bruising.
+Almost noiseless when in motion- unfortunately his totally-stylish trousers kind of negate that a bit, and someone with particularly good hearing may notice him because of the damn trousers
+Chameleonic appearance- If he stays still, the suit will alter it's colours slightly to better match the background. Not that it's in any way perfect, but if an enemy were to just glance over where he's hiding they may not notice him at first. Again though he kind of ruins this with the crest of red-brown hair he's got going on there and the creepy blue eyes don't help.

It does have disadvantages though:

-Cannot do fire. Nope. Won't even try defending from that.
-Has no internal heating, and is quite thin. Hence the scarf and trousers.
-Very recogniseable; if someone's looking for specifically him, he's easy to spot if you know how.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________
WEAPONS:
Usually he has a shotgun and a knife. If on a stealth job, he brings along his bow, and if he's feeling really flashy he'll bring out the glaive. But he likes that one so he's unlikely to use it-he just likes having it.
Will also use whatever's to hand. Guns/ranged weapons and his own hands and teeth tend to be his choice. Not a particularly great melee/swordfighter, will avoid using melee weapons.


EXTRA:

:bulletblack: That's not really his face, that's a mask. Also, his claws aren't constantly extended pls don't do that, he couldn't do anything properly with his hands if that were the case.

Bullet; Black Although he's not fully human, he's technically not a vampire. But he still has to consume blood in order to survive; the fresher the better. 

Bullet; Black Other things odd about his unique physical state are- he can and will still eat regular food, has normal bodily functions and processes. However, he only sleeps for perhaps an hour or two each night, and is strangely cold to the touch. This can cause problems wherein he gets too cold to move properly- he will not operate in cold conditions without preparing properly.

Bullet; Black No, he's not invincible.

Bullet; Black Yes, staking him will work. But it works on most living things so go figure. And no it doesn't need to be wood- a knife'll do it.

Bullet; Black He may be out to kill people, but he isn't stupid enough to keep attacking an immortal- he'll try cozy up to them instead.

Bullet; Red Fire works insanely well on him. Just set him on fire. Goodbye Purgatory.

A great knew villain added to the mix but I do have to ask....why the hell would he even need a shotgun?
Reply
:iconmekanikaltrifle:
MekanikalTrifle Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Thanks- and I do actually have an explanation to that-
1- It's a very effective way to take out regular humans/poorly protected deviants

2- Magical/supernatural shields generally work for magical/supernatural attacks, i.e not shotguns

3- He's got a thing for showmanship, and there's nothing as symbolic of the word 'badass' as the sound of a shotgun's pump, especially when facing a team of people well-equipped and ready to take you down.

4- it goes bang. Loudly. People then won't expect him to be quiet and attack quietly at a later point.

There are other reasons but that's the most important ones. :D

I hear ya, for my own OCs for instance Im trying to make sure that capes make sense as part of the costume and serve a functional purpose.

MekanikalTrifle Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
That's what I did with Shadowshade; his cape offers a first line of protection against light and light based attacks. :D It's as easy as that, and I think instead of recycling the old Incredibles line about 'no capes!', it looks good to have some thought put into the design, y'know?
So, why do your characters wear capes?

For Mr Happy his cape is literally just another part of himself. Its as useful as any limb since he's a shape shifter. My techno speedster Finish Line uses his cape as a steering and breaking mechanism. Avarice's cape is part of the weaponry that is his costume since its made of money (which he can telekinetically control). For my luchador Potencia his cape is part of the magical costume that gives him his powers. Each piece of the costume grants a specific attribute. The cape allows him to perform aerial combat moves that defy gravity.

He has a shotgun. Not many other villains have a shotgun. :D

And thanks very much! I'm glad you like him- lots of work's gone into his design. Took me ages. Also, his mask moves; I'll make a little ref for that, cause he ends up with funny facial expressions.
