Sailor HiranyalokaCivilian Name:
Lucelly [appeared on all documentation when someone asked what her name was... It wasn't there before?!]Senshi Of:
spiritual enlightenment, corrupted freedom from the cycle of rebirthRace: original race unknown humanoid. Appears wraithlike with elven/angelic featuresGender:
none. Takes 10/31 as a larkHeight:
5'6" but appears elongated in Senshi form. Civilian form stands closer to 5'2"Civilian Appearance:
appears far more solid. Black hair pulled into a loose low ponytail, a hair tie at her nape. Skin is deathly pale but not transparent Special abilities:
- Can see the depth of a person's karmic burden if she opens her eyes and makes direct eye contact which is why she seems to wander around with closed eyes. Yet can see just fine. Some people think it's creepy. (It is.)
- Can see and speak with wandering spirits as she is technically part of the cycle of life and death.
Sailor Hiranyaloka was said to wear the face of a holy woman. However, no one remembered who she was, or if the face was ever "hers". Had there ever really been a "holy woman" to begin with?
Or was she, like her teammates Oblivion and Necessity, only a fragment of the Planet of the Illumined?
No one knew, for as Hiranyaloka herself was wont to point out, it didn't really matter.
One thing that the spirits and deities of the Astral realms could agree on was that over the long millennia, she had changed. Once a vibrant (and normal) young woman, something inside her changed. For Hiranyaloka was such a tiny planet.
It was originally a land where only the truly enlightened mortals who had released themselves from the karmic cycle of life and death would reside.
Not many beings had gotten that far yet.
As she watched good souls laden with karmic burden pass on, only to find themselves stripped of memory - but not of their karma - and woven into a new tapestry of life, she began to doubt the cycle.
She had come into being to guide those ready to unload their pure karmic valance into the universe and become an Immortal Soul, free of the cycle of rebirth through merit alone. She would take bits of karma that were neutral, perhaps a little tiny bit black, into herself to slowly cleanse and purify, and send the rest to the Universe, to become energy that fed it's expansion and change and the Galaxy Cauldron that formulated starseeds. New life from the purest of energies and destinies.
Perhaps, over time, that was what changed her. Perhaps that was what caused her to doubt, for impure karma could not be destroyed. And a small fragment could not reasonably, perhaps, purify every last drop of the gray-tinged karma.
One day, as a great hero she had come to know through her adventures through the mortal realms in search of souls worthy of Enlightenment died and his soul entered the Astral Planes, she was aghast to find the balance of his darkened karma laid bare before her. For he had committed sins in the name of protecting his people. He had wronged others and ultimately, wronged himself, for the sake of "good". He would be thrown back to be reborn with the hope of learning from his past mistakes and finding a way to live a pure existence.
Taking his starseed in her hands, she studied it. Studied how it was connected to his soul and his destiny. Saw where the anchor points of the karmic energies were.
And she split it.
As he protested her actions, she smiled at him with tear stained cheeks and asked him:
"Would you like to know Eternity?"
He hesitated before saying that he did. He was tired. He had lived and died a thousand times and his karmic weight only grew heavier.
She was so serene as she held the half of his blackened starseed containing his darkness aloft, then dropped it into her mouth as she had pieces of karmic energy so many times before. It felt as if she had swallowed razors, yet she consumed it all.
The remaining half became white as snow, glowing softly. She returned it to his soul and he changed. He became wraithlike in appearance, yet a blissful contentedness radiated from him, just as it had all others she had brought into her realm.
As whispers spread among the realms of what she had done, great debates started - was she mad, was she a thief taking the souls of the desperate, was she right? Many came to kill her, accusing her of blasphemy. They failed.
As her power grew she changed, her appearance distorted, becoming washed in gray. Her eyes had been the golden orange of fall leaves once, hair raven black. In time, her eyes were reduced to pinpoints of sickly red light inside the void of corrupted energy whirling inside of her, her skin lost all color, and her hair turned a ghostly gray. Her body was distorted, yet still held ethereal beauty - some likened her to a spider calling souls into her web.
One by one she swallowed up the negative karma of those who had sacrificed in the name of heroism. She began to appear to those who died in grief and regret, always asking a simple question:
"Would you like to know Eternity?"Personality:
Lucelly seems to always be smiling. She has a pleasant enough way of interacting with others... if a little strange. She seems to take not in everyday things, and will gladly debate the joys of Eternity with anyone. She is unfazed when others behave aggressively to her.Henshin Item and Description:
A pin in the shape if a starseed broke in half, a ghostly white orb in the center representing an exposed seed.Henshin Phrase:
Hiranyaloka Power, Make UpHenshin Description:
The starseed pin pulsars with sickly white light that envelops her. Lucelly's more human body elongated into her true form, limbs and neck stretching, hair paling to gray. The light blasts outward, leaving her in her fuku. A surge of black karmic energy sweeps over her and leaves her tiara, earrings, and transparent bows and scarf under the sailor collar behind.Senshi Appearance:
The first thing one notices about her appearance is her elongated form. Her neck and limbs are too long, fingers oddly long and tapered. She is also partially see-through, especially her joints. Her hair would be about hip-length if it stopped floating about her. Her bangs and cut straight over her eyes and she has flyaway strands curving up and floating near her shoulders.
She doesn't lose her strange smile and is more likely to open her eyes when in battle, revealing the void inside and pinpoint red lights that are what used to be her eyes.
Her fuku is comprised of a cream leotard overlaid with a soft pale gray top two shades deeper than her skin tone, the hem scalloped in a V. It is lined with a deep crimson stripe about an inch from the tops of the scallops and a thicker red stripe from about halfway up the V on either side going up her chest. This is echoed on the leotard underneath. The shirt sleeves are caps with scalloped edges echoing the hem.
Her collar is a deeper gray than her shirt with two thin red stripes. Under the collar is a scarf like many Japanese school uniforms have, which doesn't sport a bow in front - instead, it is held by a scarf band of the same material as her collar. The material of the scarf is cream colored and is somewhat sheer. The half starseed pin sits on the scarf band.
The skirt is cut similarly to a regular school skirt with a thick waistband. The material is the same as the collar and a slip with the same material as the scarf, scalloped like her shirt.
Her gloves cover most of her arms and are the same light gray as her shirt, the tops scalloped and angled with the point of the V on the inner part of her arms just above her elbows. They have thin ribbons pulled through and tied on the outsides as if to cinch them to her arms. Stockings of the same design encase her legs.
Her shoes are the same gray as her skirt and simple heels.
Her tiara is white with a milky white gem. Her earrings are the same red as the accents on her fuku and are simple balls.
Weapon and Description (if any):
She has a knife that looks similar to a sacrificial dagger but rarely uses it.Attack Name and Description:
- Karmic Backlash
- The depth of her enemy's wrongs are felt as a searing pain in their body. The eviler the enemy the greater the pain. The duration depends on her power level. In basic form, it is quite weak.
- Soul Fracture
- Some of the negative energy she has built up inside from swallowing all that karmic destiny floods out of her gaping mouth, pouring over her body. She draws her long limbs inward and then thrusts them out, shooting the energy out as dozens of spikey bolts. Rather than penetrate the skin, they become liquidlike, adhering to the enemy and causing spiritual pain, draining a small amount of power. If not removed, it will eventually burn skin and clothes. It can also be used in smaller amounts to create a more concentrated spike that does pierce flesh, and immediately causes pain to the enemy as it eats away part of their flesh. The effects only last for about 30 seconds but can leave a weak opponent writhing in pain.Guardian Name and Description: none
