    Volestri, the Sauria soldier.

    Post by Volestri on Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:23 pm

    Personal Info:
    -----------------------
    Name: Volestri.
    Nickname: Soldier-87.
    Age: 28 years old.
    Gender: Male.
    Sexuality: Straight.
    Species: Reptoid, scientific name Intelligentsaurus erectus primus, or the Prime upright intelligent lizard.
    Alignment: True neutral.
    -----------------------
    Appearance:
    -----------------------
    Height: 6'9.
    Eyes: Golden yellow.
    Hair: While not exactly hair, he does have a couple stranded of hair like quills/feathers on his head, spiked in style that.
    Looks: Volestri is a evolutionary wonder in terms of appearance, being a humanoid Dinosaur, whose evolutionary path mirrors that of our own. While his ancestors previously had only three fingers, his species has revolved another digit to make up a thumb, now being four fingered, each one ending in a sharp claw. His legs are digigrade, which means their legs bend in a different way, calling back to their prehistoric relatives of the Cretaceous period. His feet are clawed as well, still retaining the toe claw his ancestors used to slash and puncture their prey, albeit they don't usually use it for anything, as well as having the vestigial dew claw. Quite muscular, and should rightly be so, he stands tall and proud. His scales are of a light brown, minus his chest and bottom scales which are colored white, and from the back of his head to the tip of his tail, he has darker brown stripes that run down. However, most of his body is usually covered in a metal exoskeleton, the armor being a more dated version of what his species usually wear, having a similar design, but is more clunky, and not at resilient. The armor is gunmetal grey, the less armored joints being black in color. He also possesses a helmet, whose visor is of a light blue, the helmet being able to retract in order for him to eat or drink. Parts of the body is covered in crimson, a strip of it around his arms, chest, and helmet respectably.
    ---------------------
    Specialties
    ---------------------
    Strengths/skills:
    Strength.
    Reptoids are naturally far stronger than that of a normal human being, having strength on par with that of a male Silver back gorilla. To put that in perspective, a normal man would be able to bench usually around 185 pounds, while a Gorilla is about 20 times stronger than that. This would mean in close quarters combat, a normal human would most definitely be ripped in half as if they were wet paper.

    Speed and agility.
    The Reptoid species still retain their ancestors unmatched speed and agility, being able to launch themselves into the air a good 8 feet off of the ground, as well as being able to run 30 MPH, which is much faster than the fastest normal human recorded in history.

    Sense of smell.
    Again like their ancestors, they have a excellent sense of smell, being able to track down different scents from different beings, animal or otherwise.

    Weaknesses/Flaws:

    Armor weak points.
    The flexible joints of the armor are easier to get into, meaning good enough gun fire and slashes from blades would be able to get through them, albeit with some difficulty as it is similar to thin Kevlar. The weak points are located around the neck, jointed areas, a part of the midsection, and the tail.

    Logical thinker.
    His species were from birth taught the logical sides of things, meaning he would not understand most of how other people think unless their way of thinking is similar to his own. As a example, he doesn't see the point of having a same sex relationship as it doesn't yield any offspring from it, nor does he see the logic behind of some people's actions or behavior. This could lead to a lot of problems with him having to interact with people.

    Armor melting/freezing point.
    Unlike the Mark II armor, this Mark I, while still being lighter and stronger than titanium, has a lower melting and freezing point. When under extreme heat, for instance about 900°F would start melting, higher points of heat would cause even more extensive damage to the user and suit at a faster pace. Extreme cold makes the armor become brittle over time, which means he would rather stick to more warmer places rather than a place like Vetur. Elemental attacks concerning these two also have the same effect.

    Suit battery.
    Unlike the Mark II as well, the Mark I has a lot shorter battery life. While mundane use will offer approximately 24 hours, extensive use of the suit's abilities will cause a decrease. When the battery is fully drained, the suit will cease in all of it's capabilities besides defense.

    Special Abilities:
    Thrusters.
    On the suit's back area are a pair of jet thrusters, granting him the ability of hovering withing midair. Being able to be about 10 feet into the air, the hovering capability is primarily used for getting out of the way from attacks, and getting a better vantage point on a enemy target. While it does little onto the suit's battery, extensive use will eat away the battery.

    Enhanced strength.
    Already adding to the tremendous strength a normal reptoid has, the Mark I Longinus armor grants the user even more strength, now being able to lift far more than what they usually are capable of, being able to lift that of a African elephant weight and hold it up high above their head. This is because the armor itself increases the user's strength, which basically means the suit only makes the user stronger compared to their own species, which means depending on the species who wear the armor, they would be either less stronger, or stronger than the Reptoid. It should be noted that extended use of this super strength ability drains the suits power, albeit gradually with much extended use.

    Armor durability.
    The armor is quite durable. While dated, and doesn't even hold a candle to the Mark II's, this armor would still be able to last long in combat against opponents, being able to shrug most gunfire and bladed weaponry. Heavier artillery, and enchanted weapons with a special perk however seem to be able to get through armor a bit easier. It should be noted that while the armored areas are still strong, the flexible areas are where people usually try to aim for.
    ---------------------
    Personality:
    ---------------------
    Personality: Volestri is a logical thinker, believing only in what he believes is right. He doesn't understand most of the planet's inhabitants, and has to tolerate them on a daily basis. While it was difficult for him at first, he has gain at least some competence on people.... if only just slightly. He mostly gets the knowledge upon this world via the data banks that connect to the internet stored into his helmet, but wont hesitate to ask a person, usually one of his teammates or a local about how things run around the place. He is strong willed, and secretive, yet somehow polite, or at least a passive kind of polite. He can also be quite vicious, usually when angered or starved, which can be quite dangerous as he isn't above eating a sentient being.

    Likes/hobbies:
    - His planet.
    - His species.
    - Useful people.
    - Meat.
    - Training.
    - Learning things that can help him.
    Dislikes:
    - Greasy food.
    - Cold weather.
    - Not getting answers.
    - Getting talked down to.
    - Anything he sees as annoying.
    Fears:
    Dying in a pathetic way.
    He believes that because of what his species is, he should go out in a honorable way via in a fight, or dying peacefully after a lifelong of doing duty, and dying in a pathetic way would leave him disgracing not only himself, but his species too.

    Not being able to get back to his planet.
    Stranded upon this new planet, he has the small fear that he may never go back to where he lives, forever to be stuck on a planet as alien to him as he is to it.
    ---------------------
    Family:
    ---------------------
    Parents: Unknown.
    Mate: N/A.
    Offspring: N/A.
    Relative: N/A.
    Brothers/sisters: N/A.
    ---------------------
    History: While not much is known about him before he got stranded onto the planet, what is known is that he arrived here via a escape pod into a forest, with only his armor and two weapons in hand. Not long after, he taken out some people, mostly muggers or anybody who dares to try and assault him, but then a new face came onto the scene, and offered him some help. Begrudgingly, he accepted, and how resides as a member of Shadow raiders... for now at least.

    Heya Volestri! I just have a few things for you to have a think about and edit please ^^"

    With your shield, you mention that it is able to block ranged attack, but what if something of equal power strikes it? For example, what if a creature identical to him tried to punch him, or what would happen if something tried to bite him. Would it still be able to block it, or would physical attacks break through the shield and go onto his armour?

    Also, his armour is incredibly powerful-perhaps make it heavier so that it slows him down a little. (I'm saying that because the rewards for wearing the armour greatly outweigh the negatives. However there are barely any weaknesses to your armour compared to the positives that it gives. Perhaps, if you wanted to keep speed, add more weaknesses to it. Give it a lower melting temperature, or something like that (it's up to you as to what you do).)

    How far from the ground can he hover? As if its high, he may as well be able to fly ! Razz (Another positive for the shield!!)

    How much power does the shield have? How many things can it block? It's incredibly powerful right now, maybe think about some things which you can change to weaken it... and not make it kinda crazy powerful compared to the rest of the site Razz

    I hope this helps! Please bump when you have edited it, or if you have questions, don't be afraid to ask me!

    Hmm, how well is the armour able to endure other normal attacks, after the shield breaks? Is it able to survive another 8 shots? (all of which you could potentially just dodge)

    And maybe lower the melting temperature a tad more xD Or give the armour another weakness, maybe it can have object sheer through it ? Or something like that, it's up to you.

    I think this might be lost in CB if I say it there xD

    The armour you have is, right now even after the nerfs we have put on it, it's still incredibly powerful.

    Here are the pros;
    ~Can hover 10 feet
    ~Has a shield which blocks 8 (or 6) normal hits or 2 huge ones.
    ~Armour is light.
    ~Armour is strong, able to endure basically any hit.
    ~Makes him incredibly strong with its power.

    Cons;
    ~It depletes (but how quickly, we don't know) energy during fights.
    ~Doesn't let him fly.
    ~Low melting temp.

    Can you see what I mean by it's literally a perfect armour? Maybe make it brittle or something to different types of attacks? You need to add more 'cons' to it, maybe make the armour heavy and slow him down. Or maybe it tires him quickly when he tries to move. I can see that you're trying to make him an unbreakable tank, but I think you've done the job too well.
