Character Information

Flag:
N/A

Appearance:
Rai looks no different than your average young man. He stands at around 5'10 and weights around 145lbs with long tied up red hair. He tends to wear Chinese outfits and carry a umbrella. Not only that he wears a long sweats and slip on shoes to make his acrobatics easier. When he feels like having a casual day he will sometimes wear wired sunglasses. Like most Bilkans he has wings that are pointed outward and due to this he has holes in his clothes revealing them. His wears a long cape that wraps around his neck and even covers part of his mouth.

As the Tengu however, Rai hides himself under a hood and a tengu mas. He dresses himself in a dark blue or black depending on the situation. Though he personally prefers the dark blue as it best hides him. He wears black jeans and a navy blue/black turtleneck shirt. and Cargo pants. Finally to finish it all off he wears black sneakers and black gloves though it has no discerning change to it. With his outfit Rai wears it in order to blend in with the darkness of night in order to seem more like an actual Tengu then a person dressing up as one.

Spoiler:


Personality: Rai is an upbeat fellow. One can always see him smiling and in a good mood no matter what happens. To the point when even where he has a gun up to his head Rai can make jokes and laugh about it. Most times he can bring a room to a chuckle with his cackle like laugh. Being an acrobat of the 1000 demon circus, Rai has a problem when it comes to sitting still and is very energetic. When he is suppose to be sitting down he will sometimes be jumping up and down and swinging around instead of sitting down. Without his mask, Rai can be very lazy, refusing to do anything that he doesn't feel like or doesn't feel inclined to do. Due to this he is easily drawn into the pleasures of the flesh or addiction rather than any constructive work making him easily distracted. Not only that Rai is the type to go with the flow, most of the things he does, is because he feels like it and it just happens to work out. Because of this Rai is very quick to adapt to new situations. Due to this he can be easily distracted by most things that are shiny or look interesting.

Rai likes a lot of things. While most of these things are food related, one of his favorite things to do is to perform in front of others. Call it a hobby of his, but Rai can always be seen putting on some sort of performance in order to entertain someone around him. Another thing he loves to do is to work on ships, he loves working on the intricate designs that a ship can hold and even at one point plans to make a flying circus within a ship. Due to this whenever he works on a ship he may sometimes add an unnecessary part to the ship in order to make it look, feel, or seem more circus-like. What Rai dislikes are partypoopers People who have to ruin everyone's fun seem to irk Rai to no end. It's usually to the point where Rai pulls pranks on them in order to get them to lighten up.

But with his mask Rai is a focused and a straight to the point pirate. He drops his whimsical persona and becomes a gruff, serious, and straightforward being. This change can be similarly attributed to the hyper focus that those who experience ADHD sometimes experience. His laziness disappears and replaces itself an focus and drive that allows the Tengu to accomplish any task given or taken by him. This change is so sudden and drastic that many whom actually seen Rai transform into the Tengu could believe he is being possessed by some sort of spirit or some higher being. Unfortunately this is wrong, it is more like he has entered the zone. In this state his focus surpasses anything he can show without the mask. Due to this he solemnly speaks when he is the Tengu, instead he leaves a silent air that freaks most people out.


Character History


Background
Rai was born in a family of circus folk that owned a traveling circus ship. They were neither rich nor poor but they got along just fine with just their work. The circus was filled with all sorts of races from fishmen to skypien. Rai spent most of his childhood surrounded by circus folk as a young acrobat. Due to the fact that the circus Rai lived in wasn't a particularly rich circus, it was up to Rai's father to keep it running on the waters and to make the fireworks that the circus was famous for. This environment that Rai lived in began Rai's development in the field of being a Shipwright and an acrobat.

At a young age Rai's father instructed Rai on how to keep the ship running. He taught Rai the parts of the ship, he taught him how to fix some of the minor problems of the ship. He even taught Rai the differences between some of the tools used to fix a ship. When Rai wasn't working on learning the ways of being a shipwright he was taught by his mother on the ways of becoming an acrobat. For years he was trained to be both an acrobat and a shipwright. It wasn't until he turned 11 that his life changed forever.

The circus went from place to place, island to island, and kingdom to kingdom. Rai got to enjoy many places, and see the despair and hatred in others. Though he went to many places he never really got to stay for long. This was due to the fact that a pirate crew known as the Tengu Pirates would attack the kingdom forcing the circus to run in fear for safety.

It wasn't until Rai was 11 that he learned the circus' secret. They weren't mere circus folks but pirates. They were the Tengu Pirates and it was decided that Rai would be the next to take up the Tengu epitaph. Once it was decided, Rai was forced to eat a strange fruit and was kicked off of the circus ship and left on an island in the West Blue to find his own way with nothing but a mask. The fruit turned out to be a devil fruit giving Rai an unimaginable ability. For the first few months Rai wandered around the island barely getting by on the food he found and causing trouble with his new found ability. It was then he was picked up by a man named Kuzume Chinjao.

The man was a former marine turned into a pirate after killing his commanding officer. Seeing Rai on the streets he decided to take Rai in. Then after hearing that Rai was abandoned by his parents to become a pirate. Kuzume in a fit of rage decided that he was going to teach Rai how to really become a pirate and how to defend himself. For the next 7 years Kuzume taught the young Rai Hasshoken.

Once Rai turned 18 Kuzume decided that it would be best if Rai followed in his parents footsteps and gave Rai his Umbrella blade. After Kuzume left the island to go on his own journey, The Tengu planned that the first thing he was going to do as a pirate was set up an assault on the marines. With the help of a few misfits at a bar, Tengu planned an assault on the marine base. When it came time for it to happen he was ratted out and the marines almost captured him. With his life on the line the Tengu killed a marine with a Hasshoken attack and fled with the last few members he could trust and snuck into the marine base.

There he acquired a map and  a gun, and attempted to escape from the island. Unfortunately the marines locked down the harbor, which was the Tengu's only escape. So instead of escaping the Tengu had no choice but to make the marines believe he had. So once again he was force to kill again. Then he threw the body on a raft and dressed the man up as Tengu and sent him a drift. Once the marines got a hold of him and realized he wasn't Tengu, the Tengu was already hiding in plain sight. Among the terrified masses.


Abilities:

  • Expert Acrobat - Growing up in an enviorment of the circus, Rai had to learn a trade. Due to his flexibility he had at an young age he was perfect to learn acrobatics. Due to this he is much more flexible than the average man and can get into places most can't with his flexibility.
  • Hasshoken Practitoner - Rai was trained by Kuzume Chinjao in the art of Hasshoken for 7 years. While he isn't perfect at it Rai is at least able to use most of the techniques.
  • Knowlegable on Ships and machines - When Rai was young he was taught by his father on how to fix and maintain ships. Due to this he is quite knowledgeable when it comes to the upkeep and the fixing of these ships.



Inventory

Standard Shipwright Equipment



Weapon Name:  Devil Eater (悪魔を食べる人) Akuma o taberu hito

Description:  A folded Katana made of black steel. It's edge is lined with a white stone known as seastone. The durable blade has been tempered and sharpened to the point that it is possible to cut oneself by touching the blade. The blade has a standard sized guard and has a long black hilt. The sheath of the blade is pitch black to go along with the sword, it is no different from any other sheath there is as its only purpose is to keep the sword from cutting everyone who gazes upon it.

Weapon History: The sword was made by Saizan Nishipachi. An old swordsmith whom had a deep love of swords that was equal to the love of his daughter. One day a pirate by the name of Long John Blue came to his store and requested him to make him the prefect blade. Nishipachi originally refused to even consider the deal as the other party was a pirate but was forced to reconsider when Captain Blue decided to take Nishipachi's daughter. Nishipachi began to work on the sword but at the same time gave his collection and most of his stock to every man whom was willing to go save his daugther. Needless to say each and every attempt failed.

It baffled Nishipachi why the man could survive against so many warriors until Nishipachi came to a realization. The man was a devil fruit user. Entering a depression Nishipachi began to work on the sword the man originally asked for. Right when it came near completion a man knocked on Nishipachi's door. When the old man openned it he saw a young man holding black metal and a white rick. The boy told the old man that the rock was seastone, and if the man helped make the sword this sword would save his daughter. The man complied and made the sword for the boy. That night the boy attacked the man and took his life. When the boy came back to repay the man, the man said the boy could keep the sword now that the man had his daughter back. The boy kept the sword and named it Devil Eater and took it with him on his journey. The boy along with the sword went in infamy.. The sword became the devil eater, the boy became the BANDIT KING.

Special Weapon Abilities:
Black Metal: This makes the sword much more durable than the average blade, it is much harder to chip and harder to repair. It can resist both the harsh heats and the the harsh chilling weather making this sword hard to even leave a chip in.
Lined with karoiseki: Makes it so the sword can cut Devil fruit users easily even logia fruit users
Dull resistance: The sword is hard to dull due to the method used to temper the blade and the properties belonging to the metals used to make it


Power Level Information

Character Strength: Skilled
Character Speed:  Dangerous
Character Resilience:  Expert
Character Dexterity:  Expert

Devil Fruit Information


Devil Fruit Name: Fuwa Fuwa no mi (Float Float Fruit)
Devil Fruit Type: Paramecia
Current Devil fruit Level: 2
Devil Fruit Mastery Level

1- User is only able to make things they touch float. The user is able to control the object they choose to make float as long as they have touched them at some point of time. They are unable to make living objects to float except themselves.

2- Users can make objects they are not directly touching float in mid-air like if the user is touching something that is touching something else. The user is able to create simple constructs out of the things they make float with their df power. They are still unable to make living things float.

3- User is able to make liquids and gasses that they touch float. Not only that the user is able to create intricate constructs from the things they float with their devil fruit power. They are still not able to make living things other than themselves float

Devil Fruit Abilities: The primary strength of this fruit lies in the wielder's ability to control the movement of himself and non-living objects after touching them once. It allows the levitation of these objects, regardless of how heavy they are.


Devil Fruit Weaknesses: The main weakness of the fruit is that the user cannot make living things (except himself) levitate. Another weakness is the user can only control things they have been previously touched. Other than that, the user is still affected by the standard Devil Fruit weakness.


Combat Information

Unarmed Combat:

Hasshoken: Smashing Fist- Using the vibration exerted by his fist Rai will punch through his opponents defenses allowing him to strike his opponent no matter how they try to block. The contact creates a shockwave bypassing the opponents defense allowing the user to hit his opponent.

Hasshoken: Striking Knee/Foot - Same as Smashing Fist but with the knee/Foot.

Hasshoken: 100 Fist - Rai sends 100 punches at his opponent. Using Hasshoken he empowers his fists in order to break through his opponents defenses.

Hasshoken: Reverb - Rai while defending against an opponent creates a defensive wall of vibration on a part of their body causing a shockwave when the opponent collides with it to do as much damage to the opponent as the opponent is doing to them. This can only be used on opponents using physical attacks.

Hasshoken: Cutting Chop- Utilizing Hassoken Rai releases vibrations from his hand while it is in the same form as a karate chop. The vibrations cut through anything under the user's strength and can even be used to cut through water and fire.

Weapon Based Combat:

Assaihira Toushou [Crushing Palm Sword Cut] - Assaihira Toushou is a sword-based attack that relies on the user's strength to increase the speed and crushing power of the blow. The user does not cut- He thoroughly cracks his foes defense. The user will place their hand just above the dull side of the blade, just above the blade's guard. Upon striking at a foe they will smack the back of the blade, applying the full front of their strength to it in order to empower the cut, increasing the speed and ferocity of the blade.

Touhaikeru [Backsword Kick] -  Kicking a blade to empower a sword. The idea is almost comical, something one might expect to be a mere trick. Any whom had been struck by a Touhaikeru will know better. Much like Assaihira Toushou, the user will strike the dull side of the blade with his body mid-attack, launching in forward at a surprising speed. The human body has more power in it's leg than arms, making Touhaikeru more powerful than it's palm counterpart. However, the move requires a certain amount of balance, making it more difficult to utilize properly.

Tobutora [Leaping Tiger] -  Tobutora utilizes the power in the legs to launch their body into the air, using unnatural human strength as the propellant. It requires stable ground in order to perform, due to the force being pressed against the surface the user is standing upon. The technique will launch the pirate into the air like a human rocket, enabling them to escape the ground, reach high ground, and pounce upon an enemy from the air.

Danmaku [Barrage] - Danmaku allows one to energize their arms and allowing them to let out a barrage of slices, none particularly powerful but numerous. Being able to strike at an insane rate is key, as it will allow you to slip through a foe's defenses.

Batto [Draw] - Batto allows one to propel thier sword at an opponent from their hilt in a quick slash

Senka [Flash Blossom] - the user begins by sheathing his blade and gathering his energy as he rushes at his opponent. Upon moving at a foe, they will draw the blade and at the same time begin to spin. Because of this movement, the user will be able to cut a foe not once but twice- The Initial blow from the first draw when they are in front of the opponent, and the second from the spin returning as they pass their foe.

Tsubame Gaeshi [Swallow Reversal] -  This technique, in turn, involves two precise furious cuts. The user will begin with a downward cut in order to lure them in, apparently giving a foe an opening from the initial strike. In reality, it is merely a trap. Once the enemy nears, the user will spin the blade around in his hand and cut upward.


Devil Fruit Based Combat:
Rising Action - Rai uses his devil fruit to make an object float and sends it flying at an opponent.

Meteor Crash- Rai puts his hand on the ground and summons up debris/break up the ground around him with his devil fruit power. With it he rushes at his opponent and smashes into them with the debris.

Crash Spikes- Using his devil fruit power Rai breaks up the ground around him picking up shards of debris and firing it at an opponent.

Flying fist - Using his devil fruit Rai makes the shockwaves released from his hasshoken enforced fist float like a bullet towards his opponent in order to hit them.

Tengu's Rage: Utilizing his Devil Fruit power Rai breaks the ground and whatever he makes float into the form of a multiple ravens. With a flick of his fingers he sends them at his opponents. They can also be ridden on if Rai makes them big enough

Great Wall: Utilizing his devil fruit Rai lifts a wall made of whatever is the target of his touch. This wall protects the user from whatever the user is being attacked with.



Combo Combat:
N/A Yet


Haki: N/A
