TORAITO OF THE KAGZRAN
Leader Of The Horde
Tryte of the Ravaging Wave
Kharn of the Barbarian Tribe
The Barbarian Tribe. It doesn't have a name, only a title. The leader of the tribe is known as the Kharn. That is how it has always been. It is how it shall always be. The Kharn decides what shall be done to the worlds of this cosmos. Power is the only rule.
There was a man once. Nobody knew where he'd come from, he had black hair and a scowl and a tattoo across his shoulder. He challenged the Kharn to a duel and with an attack called Hakaiha, the Ravaging Wave, the warrior slew the Kharn. And so this man became the new Kharn. It hadn't been his intention, but he soon saw the danger of having these warriors on his homeworld and so he took his family and left his world. To journey among the stars.
What became of this man? Maybe he was killed and the man who known holds the golden sword is a totally different individual. Certainly, it's known that his family left. For years, the Kharn has wandered the galaxies looking for something. Planets crushed in his wake, what is it? What could the destroyer of world's possibly be looking for?
Toraito is self absorbed to the extreme, ever since he became the Barbarian King (or 'Kharn') he's only cared for his own whims and desires as is the tribe's way. Entire planets have been crushed in his rampage across the galaxy, the power of the rage blowing through him and any who choose to join his clan. He has next to no regard for other people but a level of respect for powerful fighters. He's been known to recruit any who show sufficient might to his side and to let weakling join as a false pretense to get what he needs from them.
His total selfish fixation is only balanced by the love he has for his tribe. All who fight under the banner of their Kharn are Toraito's people and he allows them incredible leniency. Provided they don't conflict with his own desires he lets them do whatever they want. His greed is legendary, his wrath terrible, his honor almost imaginary. Yet there's something about Toraito that doesn't sit well with people, as though there are unseen depths to the dreaded Kharn.
Diablo III Barbarian (Diablo)
A massive beast of a man, the sight of the Kharn is just as frightening as his demeanor. His body is riddled with the scars of battle, which he takes great pride in. He's generally seen wearing extensive sets of armor to add to his heavily intimidating appearance. He doesn't wear armor for protection, however, but as a means to psyche people out in order for him to see the fear in their eyes before he kills them.
Made from a unique alloy that renders it capable of cutting feats previously believed impossible. The golden blade is the envy of many and possessed only by the current Kharn.
It doesn't cover much but the Kharn's armor is ceremonial. And sharp
Toraito is an incredibly skilled fighter, though he lacks the finesse of the martial artists of Eden, he has a canny skill and ferocity that makes him a match for even the most well trained master. Instinctive combat is always going to beat trained...
Rally the Horde
Toraito is an effective leader of his tribe precisely because he keeps them on an incredibly long leash. They can do what they want AND have back-up from the scariest guy in the galaxy? Why wouldn't they do like he asks?
You may not know it to look at him, but Toraito is sharp as a knife in the mental department. He'll see a weakness and exploit it in seconds.
The ability to manipulate inner energy for a variety of effects.
Detecting the natural energy of a person in order to determine their relative level of power.
Using your energy to lift and propel yourself through the air.
The ability to survive in any environment, even if it lacks the necessary resources to sustain life, like the vacuum of space.
The power source for the Kharn and all who serve him, The Rage is a primal font of Ki power that can be accessed by those who follow the barbarians. Dark red in color, the Barbarians can choose to use this energy to supplement themselves. Possessing the Rage makes a fighter inherently tougher and more durable than the average warrior. While not a transformation, it means at a baseline while they may not be as fast as other warriors they are incredibly durable and have a far higher pain tolerance. It also makes their ki inherently burn, damaging opponents unless they shield with their own auras. Possessing the Rage allows the user to project their energy for devastating effects.
The Ravaging Wave, Toraito focuses energy into one hand and with his palm open and fingers stretched releases a solid wall of crimson energy. This energy will ignite or explode whatever it passes through with hot, burning ki.
As long as he has the will to fight, Toraito can't die. His body will heal through the Rage and he cannot be killed. Damaged, yes. Slain? Well, it's never been done before.
A power of the Rage, any attack the Kharn receives will be felt by the dealer. Effectively, any damage done to Toraito is done to the perpetrator and vice-versa. So if Toraito is using the Reciprocate power and strikes an opponent in the face, he'll take damage too. Unfortunately, due to the Rage, Toraito can take a lot more punishment than his opponents. If the opponent attempts to avoid receiving repercussions, Toraito will likewise receive the benefit--if they set Toraito on fire, they would be too. If they put themselves out, the fire on Toraito goes out too. This was originally a technique designed to stop fighting but fueled by the rage all it does is mutually assure destruction. It requires the opponent to also be enraged for the ability to activate, and then make contact with either Ki filled with the Rage or physical contact with a Barbarian. Once activated, both the Kharn and the target would glow bright red for the duration.
In order to sever the connection, one must either calm down, be incapacitated, or be of serene mind as Reciprocate takes effect, thus being totally immune to it.
The Magic Bottle of Erillma
A special glass bottle that can be used to capture sentient people and hold them in a magical stasis. It's not perfect, as it takes a considerable amount of time for the magic involved to dampen the power of those trapped inside. Once inside, it's impossible to get out unless released from the bottle. The dampening converts those trapped into a form of energy easily malleable by The Rage, and can be activated by the kharn's ultimate power.
The Dying of the Light
The Finishing Move that has devastated all that have been unfortunate to be on the receiving end of it. A bomb of energy fueled by all the rage and hatred locked up inside the Barbarian Tribe's hearts. It culminates with the Kharn pounding the ground, triggering a tsunami of energy from his body that rolls out in all directions. It's the ultimate area of effect attack capable of complete destruction and obliteration of all those who come across it.
On the micro-scale, using this power with the bottle of Erillma interacts with the magic and is capable of converting dampened energies inside into of a form of Rage ki that the Kharn can absorb to either bolster his physical might or to amplfy the Dying Of the Light. Generally, he prefers the latter, opting to use those who once stood in his way as a bomb to destroy those they attempted to protect.
