Steel Soul: The Badass Of Elysium In A New Albion RPG

26 Jul

I’m sharing this with you because i ran across it on the net and i got a SERious thrill over it.

Okay, so, over at RWBY Fanon, which  “is a free database made by RWBY fans containing information about anything fanon, whether it be fan fiction, fan art, fanimation or a RWBY inspired fan made character” a user known as Steelnorthman created a character named Steel Soul who is based not simply in the New Albion world, but specifically in the Elysium of the Atompunk Opera Act 3. Which is friggin’ awesome. It read to me like a player character in an RPG if New Albion was a playable RPG universe.

So i wanted to share it with y’all cause i just… loved it. Obviously he takes a few liberties, but hey, you gotta sometimes.

The actual page is here.

There are no sketches of the character or i’d totally post one.

Name: Steel Soul

Gender: Male

Age: 20

Height: 5’10”

Weight: 140lb

Occupation: Blood Red Dogs: Leader of Soul’s Reapers

Birth Place: Elysium, Voodoopunk Outpost

Personal Song: Postcards From Perdition Trail

Battle Chant: (Blood Red Dog chant):

Lock and load, let it go,   the loathsome side show  is coming on down the town
barker in your hand   it’s a bedlam jam   we’ll be tearing it up all around
fire in the hole   it’s a breezy stroll   we’ll have tea in hell today
when the Blood Red Dogs  come to do a job  and send you on your way

Appearance:

Clothing/Uniform: brownish black pants, brownish black jacket with grey trim on hood and shoulders with the patch of the Blood Red Dogs, steel goggles with smoked lenses, combat boots, grey undershirt, a mechanical gasmask that covers only the mouth and nose, and wears in normal combat a greyish black military helmet with the Reaper insignia.

Body: European skin color, short brown hair, scruffy beard, eyes almost pure white and glowing with “spirit” energy (side effect from extensive use of Elysian made weapons), tattoo on left arm of the Reaper insignia and on the right the Blood Red Dogs insignia, scars cover body from battle with the hell beasts of Elysium.

Personality: Protective of those he views as friends or comrades. Normally cautious and secretive around strangers or new persons. He warms and opens as he gets to know someone. His education is that of (comparably to) higher class, in New Albion all citizens are required to have college level education by the age of 18 (New Albion is where the Voodoopunks originated from, it’s technology is higher than that of most worlds, to the point of being able to open dimensional gateways without magical aid and to have extremely life like holograms (like Star Trek quality holograms)).

Weapon: Elysian Nights

Weapon Info:

Appearance: 2 gauntlets with claws and a dial on the top, and a gun barrel under the gauntlets arm. Make: Made of Elysian metal called Elysianium, a blackish red metal that when combined with technology can control and harness the power of the “spirits”.

Abilities:

Spirit Ward: a directional shield directly in front of the palm that expands to taller than height, and wider than the user’s front that prevents organic, synthetic, and paranormal from passing through. absorbs most energy(physical) transferred into it.

Spirit Blast: a short range blast of energy that’s focused directly in front of the palm of the gauntlet. range min 0ft max 7.5-10ft. charge/about 2 sec. has push back on the user.

Spirit Beam: a condensed beam of spiritual energy that comes from the palm. range min 0ft max 100ft. short charge/about 5 sec charge. no push back.

Soul Blade: an energy blade made of spiritual energy that comes from the top of the hand.

Soul Fist: energy is stored up into the gauntlet and released upon impact when punching. blast radius 15ft. charge 10 sec.

Soul Gun: fires a variety of 9mm ammunition types that become enhanced with “spirit” energies upon firing. (single shot then reload)

Info on Elysianium Tools Weapons and Armor:

Elysianium while in Elysium have near infinite use, while outside require raw “Elysianium Crystals” (similar to “dust” gems) to recharge Elysianium’s “spirit” energies. Elysian Night’s Spirit Ward and Soul Blade ability can be held for 10 hours straight, while Spirit Beam and Soul Fist can have a max of 500 uses total between them both before the gauntlet is drained, Spirit Blast can have 1000 uses while Soul Gun would have nearly 10000 uses if you could carry that amount of ammunition. Elysianium is a dense mineral as dense as lead found only in Elysium, the crystals are formed when the mineral, not the metal form, is submerged in water and the water electrified.

Note to clarify “spirit” energy: it was called “spirit” energy by the Arcadia Corp which is run by Voodoopunks, a high spiritual group who have learned to call upon the dead for knowledge and other things…, but it doesn’t mean that it’s literally spirit energy. Dust could be categorized in this way as well, but Elysianium’s “power” comes from it’s combination with tech, much like if you wrap copper wire around either iron or steel and put electricity through the copper it makes an electromagnet. The energy has an almost Ethereal Flame look to it, blue in color and acts like fire does, without it burning anything.

Background:

He was raised in Elysium which is comparable to hell, where every night hell beasts would attack the outpost hunting any living soul. Steel also has a militia background in the Blood Red Dogs, at the age of 13 he joined them to help defend the outpost from the beasts’ attacks.

It was around that time that Elysianium was discovered and the Voodoopunks and the Blood Red Dogs began producing weapons out of the metal. They soon learned that Elysianium because of it’s connection with “spirits” doesn’t work the same with one that didn’t make it. It became used by specially trained soldiers who created their own weapons and gear from the strange metal. Those soldiers became known as the Soul’s Reapers for the fact that their weapons and tools harnessed the powers of the “spirit”s and souls. Steel was drafted as one of the earliest to learn to harness Elysianium’s power. The training for a Reaper is 4 years, Steel was 14 at the time. But Elysianium’s use also brought side effects on the user, like bleached and glowing eyes, faster healing rate when using “spirit” energy (especially in Elysium), enhanced speed and strength, and a form of soul binding to ones weapons, tools and armor. Those who try and use another’s Elysianium gear would feel as if the gear was made of solid lead and wouldn’t be able to call upon the “spirit’s” aid.

1 year ago some of the punks discovered that it’s possibly to find weak points in Elysium to which other gates can be made to go to possibly other worlds. With this they found the location of the nearest weak point and built a gate under the protection of Soul’s Reapers. The gate is completed 6 months later with the resources and funding from the Arcadia Corp. in New Albion. Arcadia decided that the best course of action would be to send a small squad of elite scouts to get reconnaissance on what could lay beyond this new gateway. Steel’s squad of Reapers are chosen to partake in this expedition. (3 squad members are open for others)  __, __, __ and Steel take what supplies they are given by Arcadia Corp and take the dangerous trip through to the new world. Travel through the gateways are extremely dangerous, in the early days it was a one way trip into Elysium, but they had eventually stabilized both sides so those in Elysium could leave. Luckily due to the presence of magic in this new world the gateway was safe for them to pass through.
