    Haha, we gonna get rocked.

    Gotta think carefully about Sasheem's first move in this fight. We still haven't seen much of what Jagam can do but he clearly gives no fucks.

    Let's make him regret that.

    Nah, Ishtar and Parsley worked together to trap the battlefield. Ki traps from both of them, overlaid with magic from Ishtar. Oh well, too late to go back and fix it; all there is to do now is figure something else out.

    Jack's abilities giving a quick write up before the fight starts.

    Ki

    Dead Man's Hand!:

    An incredibly powerful and risky technique. The user channels as much energy as the can muster into a single punch. The punch hits with absurd levels of power, but depending on the state of the user this can lead to the user experiencing exhaustion, unconsciousness, crippling injury of even sudden death.

    Hot Streak: Second Hand Smoke, Jack takes a deep breath, and breathes out a wave of ki similar to a flame thrower. While it has limitations on range, about thirty feet, if fires in a cone with a rather large spread. Additionally, much like a wave of flame, this attack his hard to block or parry, you can't just deflect or bat it away like a physical ball, as it flows around such attempts.

    Blowing Smoke:

    A form of short ranged Teleportation where Jack appears and disappears in a puff of smoke. It can be performed quickly

    Snake Eyes:

    Jack builds up a concentration of ki in his eyes which is then released in a brilliant flash. This light has the potential to blind anyone looking at Jack's face at the time, particularly if their looking into his eyes. It does not do any other damage.

    Midnight:

    Jack creates a sphere around himself of about thirty feat which blocks out all ki sensing, (including his own), creating a staticy affect instead.

    Spectral (Magic)
    While dead, Jack figured out how to use energy from the Otherworld (Particularly that of his former mentor Manco.

    Death Dealer: Jack and Manco managed to merge the latters spectral energy with one of Jack's Katchin daggers. This dagger now has several unique properties, Jack can summon and dismiss it at will, he can change its size and proportions from a small knife to a greatsword, and he can use it to interact with/attack other spirits/magical effects.

    52 Pigstickers: With Manco's aid Jack can create multiple copies of his knives in rapid succession using them as throwing weapons.

    Double Down:

    Where before Jack needed to keep smoking to use his ki abilities, Jack has cured himself of this problem, being able to manually shut-off, turning on his natural connection to the Otherworld. With this ability Jack willfully tears the hole wide open and spectral energy pours in, replacing his natural ki. This grants increased strength, speed, toughness, and a massive increase to damage soak, but shuts down all ki abilities. Jack can use the spectral energy to fly, but has yet to master using it for blasts, or any sort of sensory ability. Jack must spend several minutes in intense focus to reverse this affect.

    Physical

    Joker's Joint-Lock:
    A quick counter to a punch or kick designed to either today the opponent or break the offending limb. While highly effective the technique requires the user actually endure the blow to get in proper position to perform it.

    Reversal Roulette:
    A technique to quickly reverse an opponent spinning several times before slamming them into the ground or some other hard object.

    Blackjack Bushwack:
    A nasty snapping punch delivered to some vital area of the opponent, preferably one who is helpless, stunned, or unsuspecting.

    Ace of Blades: (Weapon)
    A technique where Jack deflects an incoming attack and attacks his opponent with a single stroke, rather than first parrying and then counterattacking. Riskier, but much quicker and harder to defend against.

    Assuming Etrina followed through with the temporal traps she mentioned -- though no idea if she actually did or not, what say you, Sandy ? -- only her traps will have made it.

    Time for Plan 'Something', I guess.
    She would have gone over there after having her time with Zaofan and set up a few of them. Just haven't gotten to the point of actually writing that. ;_;

    Name: Held Debon

    Race/Species: Navada-Jin

    Age:23

    Height/Weight:6'0 183 lbs

    Appearance: (I'll do this when I'm less lazy. Have to dig up his old profile desc)

    f27181908d6e06a9c86c549542f2f5daff02f39f.jpg

    Power Level: 20,000

    Style: (Fighting style) Yunikōn Ryū (Unicorn Style Martial Arts)

    Items: (what your character has on them. This includes weapons)

    A Silver Short Spear --In reality some sort of silver alloy-- about two feet in length, with Nevadian Glyphs adorning it.

    A Long Golden Spear—also an alloy-- about six feet long, with ellaborate Nevadian markings.

    A small encyclopedia on the various customs of this world

    A change of clothes

    A backpack containing various items and capsules from his time on earth

    A sizable amount of money (Although he is very unwilling to use it, thinking such a simple exchange makes ones ability to barter atrophy)

    The ruins of his ship and the various items he salvaged from it

    The Glorious Galloping: A space-faring hotrod, gifted to Held Debon for his services by the genius inventor, Jinzi Pantaloon. Spacious, swift, powerful: What more could a Nevadian ask for?

    The Artifact of Lady Isis: A mysterious square shape device that was kept safe by Meagan. It was accidentally(?) determined that Held was chosen to use the mysterious item by the spirit of Lady Isis. It is reputed to have some magical resistant properties.

    Energy Piling Bracer: A tresure held in the Red Raiders vault, found by the Nevadian during the raid on their compound. The bracer slowly absorbs ambient ki from its wearer, stockpiling it overtime. When needed by the user, a supreme boost of ki can be infused into them, allowing for a considerable boost in power, for a time.


    Special: (This is where you list something special, if anything, your character can do/has. Telepathy, regeneration, etc...)

    Jumpstart: With enough time, and provided the body has enough latent ki saved within the heart, a burst of energy can reanimate a fatally—or near fatally—wounded Navadian, provided the heart (And brain) is still intact.


    Phantasmal Summoning Technique: Crazy Horn, Lord of The Sunlit Planes

    Due to the ancient and arcane nature of his weapon, Held has somehow made a bargain with the Nevadian Unicorn, Crazy Horn, who on occasion might deign to aid him in battle. The spell seems to run off of Helds own ki reserves, dispelling when he lacks the energy required to maintain it, or when the summoner or summon have been dispatched in battle.

    Currently, the true strength of the summon seems to be limited by the strength of the summoners ability to access it. Crazy Horn can also be partially manifested around the caster, using its various body parts to assist the caster in offensive or defensive measures from close range.

    Crazy Horn: Boiling Point: Allowing his great fury to take over, Crazy Horn undergoes a drastic increase in strength and speed, at the cost of a massive drain on the casters ki. Due to the immense strain on the caster, they are left in a more vulnerable state during the casting.


    Shingan(Red): A hereditary technique among the Navada-Jin, it has numerous variants. In this case, the eyes are turned an opaque blood red, overtaking the finer details of the eyes. Allows for in depth-analysis and prediction based on superlative ki--And magical-- sense, giving away the finer details of delicate movements from great distances, and allows one to see the intricacies of Ki based abilities. As a result of constant training in magical arts, his Shingan has evolved, allowing him to do the same with magical energies.



    History (Backstory) “Well...That could have gone worse? Right? At least it's inhabitable?”
    Those are the words muttered by our hero as stumbled out of the wreckage of his ship three years ago, spotting the worlds plant life and vegetation not far away.

    “Who would have thought that with all I put down on that ship, that a little water on the control system would bust it this easy...”

    A member of a space-faring race of nomads and traders, who traveled throughout the galaxy, winning hearts and minds with the power of negotiation and diplomacy.

    And crushing the same organs when the more unreasonable species of the galaxy took umbrage to them for some reason or another. Usually muttering something about piracy or smuggling, or various unsubstantiated claims.

    “Well, this place looks a bit..toned down, but it shouldn't be too hard to find a ride back home..”

    It's with this setting in mind that our favorite privateer—Err, Merchant—took off, heading towards a small peaceful planet in need of supplies.

    “What the hell, I didn't set an alarm to wake me up during my nap! What's with all the noise?”

    Due to a misunderstaing, perhaps his own, or that of his ship, or something unknown to him, rather than arriving on the planet as intended, he found himself in the center of an asteroid shower.

    “Crappy Nav! This map makes no sense! There isn't a planet here! I knew I shouldn't have trusted that guy as far as I can—Eh?”

    Through a series of glitches and luck our unconscious hero survived, landing on the planet our story takes place in.

    Is this a story of a man trying to claim fame and glory? Or is this a story of one mans attempt to return to the stars?

    Tune in next time on Dragonball M!

    Other:

    Although not exceptionally....exceptional... by the standards of his people, he is an adept trader, negotiator and diplomat by the standards of the world he finds himself stranded on.

    “Speak softly and carry a big stick”would be a maxim that he would readily agree with.

    A fairly relaxed and lackadaisical man, it's entirely possible the reason he has yet to make a name for himself on this planet is because of the effort involved.

    Or because of a serious of slight misunderstandings with major consequences.

    Techniques (Your attacks and what they do. This is where you list your attacks/moves and what they can do)

    Unicorn's Horn Pierces Heavens: A spearhand strike, focusing ki around the length of the arm, the most intense concentration being around the fingertips, granting unparalleled penetrative power.

    <Piercing Insight Upgraded technique>

    Piercing Horn--Mara: Severance of Senses: Helds insight and subtle ki manipulation allow him to sever the sense of an opponent for each successful stab(Ki sensing, sight, touch, smell, touch, hearing). Although a powerful technique, it can be overcome by time or a power level sufficient to overcome Helds own energy.

    <Piercing Insight Upgraded technique>

    Piercing Horn Rampage--: Ki energy floats slightly away from the users hands, taking a shape similar to points of a spear launching towards the opponent at break neck speads, precisely targeting multiple points.

    Unicorn's Gallop: Focusing ki within the legs, ones movement power can be enhanced. If need be, it can be enhanced further by manifesting ki outside of the body. Although this method gives greater speed, it is much more draining on ones energy.

    Unicorn Knows No Restraints: Shifting ones upper body to the ground, before pushing off mightly from the earth, launching ones hindquarters into the air, impacting the enemy with both feet.

    Unicorn Hooves Shake The Sea: A Palm Strike or kick with the flat of the foot, charged with rippling ki, causing constant concussive internal damage.

    Uncorn's Tail Splits Sky in Twain: A sword hand strike, able to cleave the hardest obstacles in twain. When charged with ki, it's immense cutting potential skyrockets, and a cutting wave of energy can be launched at an opponent from close or long range.

    Unicorn Treads Upon Stars: While Airbone, burst of dense, heavy 'solid' ki can be launched from the palms or the bottoms of the foot of the Nevadian, helping to propel him upwards and suppress the enemy with its combination of speed, power, and weight...

    Unpowered, the attack resembles a stomp attack, or multiple palm strikes from above.


    Spiraling Horn Burst: A Technique brought about as a result of training with Kami. Chanelling ki through his spear, a small blue orb with tendrils flowing appear on the very tip of his spear. As the attack is prepared, these tendrils spin together manifesting a drill like appearance, before a lengthy beam attack is released, drilling through the air into and through whatever is unfortunate enough to be attacked by it.

    Nevadian Runic Art: Symbols of Transmutation: Unicorns were reputed to be capable of miraculous healing abilities, able to save men on the cusp of death, and turn the most obnoxious poison into pure water, using their horn as a catalyst. Overtime, this art was learned by Nevadian mages, before being lost to the ages. Using his spear as a catalyst, Held is able to alter the fundamental form of an object or creature, provided he has the skill or energy to do so, or that the objects own power does not overtake that of his own.



    Nevadian Runic Art: Aura of Everlasting Purity
    : Held is capable of creating an aura that is most effective against those who are impure in body, mind, or spirit or intent. The more divided or depraved the individual, the stronger Helds defensive barrier becomes.

    The barrier is capable of being breached by an excessive power, and weakens considerably against those pure of heart, body, or intent.

    Nevadian Runic Art--Sigil of Immobilization: Using his spear, Held swiftly carves a rune on the body of an opponent, drastically slowing their movement speed in the case of stronger enemies, while removing their movement entirely in the case of drastically weaker foes. While most effective when directly placed upon a persons being, it can be used in a more widespread manner, carving the sigil on the a solid substance, ensnaring all who walk upon it.

    Unicorn Dances Through The Piercing Horn Forest: Injecting the ground beneath him with energy, towering Ki constructs rapidly and randomly erupt through the ground circling Held for several yards. The trunk of each construct has smaller jagged spikes of energy that jut out in various directions, threatening to impale anything caught in their path.

    Unicorn Rebuffs Unworthy Soul : According to legend, the only way to be allowed to treat with the majestic unicorn was to be pure of heart and spirit. Those who were lacking, would see little more than a gust of wind, and the back of the majestic beast as it vanished from sight. What the legends failed to mention was the fact of the unlucky, or the persistent. Those who would try further would saw themselves met with a ferocity and aggression that that hid beneath its peaceful form. Almost always, this would hold the promise of death.

    Channeling dense, sharp ki around his elbows and knees, Held unleashes a vicious barrage of strikes targeting the enemy from all angles, below administering his coup de grace: A close range eruption of Ki from his his skull following a vicious headbutt.


    Shingan: Kiai-- The art of releasing a torrent of Ki from ones eyes is a fairly basic move among experienced warriors, an explosion of energy with a mere glance. Using the insight and sensitivity of the Shingan, Held can easily detect the weaknesses of lifeforms and structures, and target their vital areas with a mere glance.


    Shingan—Overtaker: Emitting ki from his eyes, similar to ki, this technique transmits his ki directly into the body of his enemy via eye contact. The clash of ki causes disorder in the body, and reduces the opponents power level by one fourth of Helds power level, if they are stronger than him, and one half, if they are weaker.

    I've taken this to mean that Jagam would not be a fan of Held, who you could argue to be a user of the subtle tongue, and arguably a sophist.

    Sarada, Parsley, Totoma, protect Held with your bodies.

    Ochazuke: *catches the blade between his hands, slows his descent*

    Jagam: A scabbard of mortal flesh tied to feckless, piteous notions cannot contain the edge of keenest righteousness as it descends to render justice and death!

    Held: As I understand it, you've come all this way to protect the interests of your Empire.

    Ochazuke: *strains* Held...

    Held: Indeed I admire the efficacy of the Threshlings, having established themselves, no, flourished in complete isolation, it is nothing short of a miracle!

    Ochazuke: Held!

    Held: Your quarrel with the Saiyans is well known, but perhaps the Nevadians can cut you a deal. Consider the humble spear, king of all weapons-

    Ochazuke: Would you stab him already?!

    Held: *aside* You owe me a favour, man. *turns* Heldcorp can offer, to every Threshling of every shape and disposition...

    Beam doesn't detonate if it hits friendlies, and Ishtar can detonate it on contact with/or just before, it hits an enemy (Jagam).

    I'm going to bed. I expect to wake up to a catastrophe of some kind.

    Also, pretty sure Jagam just finished reading Conan the Barbarian.

    Jagam seems to be letting us hit him with our attacks so far...that can mean nothing good...
