*Name: Manipra of the Fire-Touched

*Gender: Male

*Age(actual and how you appear): Looks to be around 40 years old. Really has existed for 120 years.

*Race: Human

*Occupation(optional): Templar of the Silver Flame

*Title: Lord Manipra, Templar of the Silver Flame, Guardian of the Pure Flame

*Physical Appearance(height, weight, body style, eye color, hair, skin, etc): Manipra is a tall, well-toned, and muscular looking man with dark black hair and angelic-looking eyes, completely white. He’s certainly an eerie figure, standing in at around 6’4” and weighing in at around 220 lbs.

*Clothing: Has a variety of uniforms: casual robes, battle-gear, and ceremonial attire. The casual robes are white, mingled with red and white flames. The symbol of the Silver Flame is on the back of the robes. Manipra’s battle-gear is a set of full-plate armor and shield, the armor oddly bright and shiny in its platinium coloration. It is made of a rare metal known only as Infernati (see below). The shield itself is crafted of the same material with the Silver Flames symbol. His ceremonial attire is a white robe, lined with silver ties and seemingly ritually stained with blood.

*Personality: Manipra is a callous and cold individual, composed in no matter what the circumstances may be. There’s something oddly of a higher power to him, although he is a man of no compassion and mercy. His ideal is that the impure must be purged to join the Silver Flame; the Elves are under trickery and heresy and modern-day humans are too full of themselves in their Earth worship and territorial claims. He protects his tribe first and fore-most, but since they are under the protection of the Guardians…alas, he was never too concerned with their safety to begin with.

*Strengths: Manipra has control over the Silver Flame, and as such can conjure it at will. The Silver Flame allows him to manipulate and control fire to his heart’s content, and also conjure flame of his very own accord. The flames he control must be within his five senses, and are always turned silver by his will. He often surrounds his weapons in this flame, to strike fear in the hearts of the infidels. Manipra is also made ageless by the Flames power, and though he can be killed by mortal means it is very difficult to do so. The Chrysalis shards (see weakness) also enhance his physical prowess: his reaction time has been severely improved, granting him cat-like reflexes. He also has 100% control over his physical body, and can ignore pain and fuel his body with adrenaline. His arms and legs have been enhanced beyond recognition and he has made immune to any form of disease or sickness. He also has regenerative capabilities, though this can be overcome by magical means.

*Weaknesses: Manipra is a man of few weaknesses, one of them being his dedication to the Silver Flame. Family and friends have died beside him, and he truly believes the Flame to be purifying him in such a manner. “Though suffering, we are purged by the Flame and are closer to the core.” Some would see this as a strength to not be weakened by the loss of “loved” ones, but alas: such is far from the truth. Manipra is a foreigner to emotion, and remains dead to the world. He cannot be saved from his utter devotion, nor will be willingly do so. A physical weakness of his is the flame shards that reside within him. The Flame’s physical manifestation was presented with the Chrysalis, a diamond of fair proportions. When he was young, the Chrysalis was presented into six shards and implanted into Manipra: his spinal cord, his arms, his legs, and his heart have been pierced with the crystals, giving him strength but sapping away his soul. Removal of these crystals will severely weaken him, and removing them all will kill him entirely- withering him away in moments. The next possessors of the crystals are imparted with Manipra’s memories and dreams, and are under his direct control…but such an act of willingly implanting these shards is foolhardy, as it drastically weakens his powers.

*History: Manipra’s family was apart of the Fire-Touched Clan, who made their living around the Fire Lake. They were nomads, lowered from power many years ago by a curse of the Elves. Before time immemorial, the Fire-Touched were the protectors of the silver flame, and guarded it with their lives. For this, the clan was protected and made immortal by the flame- who had decimated many foes. While they had remained isolation at their corner of the world, there were those who thought they could control the flame. Such included the Elves.

The Elves had sought the Silver Flame, and constantly waged war with the immortal beings of the Lake. For 300 long years, this war continued until an anonymous elf had cast a curse upon the Flame. Since the Elves could not possess the flame, nobody would. The Elf had stripped immortality from the clan and buried the Silver Flame’s existence into the Lake, barring all from controlling the Flame. The Flame’s influence over the world was diminished, and the clan was reduced to a smoldering pile of ruin.

All of that had changed many years ago. The Clan had given birth to a Seer, Amanuandi. This seer claimed to be a Prophet of the Flame, saying the chosen would arrive in one century. The clan was to prepare, and protect a gem as their trial. Should they fail protecting the gem, the Flame would kill them all in a burst that would decimate the clan outright. The clan had protected the gem from the hands of the elves and humans alike, and had seen the birth of Manipra- or the “Beautiful Flame”.

Manipra was implanted with the gem, and was told of his role in the world. As a small child, he was cold and detached. As an adult, he was a projected version of this, a zealot in no small degree. He had traveled the world, collecting information from all walks of life and all races- disguised. He had killed many along the way for Purification, and had cared not of their fate. For 120 years, he had committed to his role as zealot- although eventually he had become the leader of the clan. He had spoken of the war of humans and elves, and that this was their opportune moment to strike. Could it be the elf that had cursed them so long ago was found? He questioned this, and sought to find and kill the elf, Celinor for answers.

He is now the hidden templar agent of the flame, seeking intelligence against the elves. As appearing as a human (as all of his clan is), he must war with the humans, not against them as with the Elves. He is no elf, after all- and they are his sworn enemies. But what if? Manipra is actually an informat for the elves, and is the spymaster for the elven King. He has remained hidden for long, relaying hidden messages to this King while waiting for his trust to be exploited. When the opportunity arises? He will destroy the Elves, and take their leader to his mercy to uncover the Silver Flame for the world once more.

*Weapons: His spear, a gift given to him and wrought of Infernati. Infernati is platinium, melted with the flame of the Fire Lake and enchanted by the priests of his clan of Fire-Touched. The spear itself cannot be melted or destroyed in any way, and pierces through the harshest of metals easily. To keep a lower profile, he also carries another pair of spears of mundane metals, although enchanted to sear flesh as they pierce it. He also possesses a scimitar, similar to the dual spears.

*Belongings and Favorites: Full-Plate Armor, Shield, the Infernati Spear (all crafted of Infernati). Dual Spears of Enchanted Fire and a similar scimitar. Possesses the Chrysalis, hidden within his body (see above). Wears casual gear when not in one of his three sets of clothing, which may include leather armor.

*Family (deaths, alive, in trouble, hatred): His family is his clan, praying for his success in the motherland. Despite this, his true family is dead as his mother and father perished while on a pilgrimage up a foyoda of the fire lake. The Foyads are the lakes branching out of the lake itself, which are considered to possess wisdom as one travels down them. He did have two brothers, who he killed out of suspiscion of heresy. His one sister is a Priestess of the Silver Flame, and does many of his blessings.

It's doable. But he sounds like a character that would be easy to godmode with. So, try to turn him down a notch. Make him less... HOLY s*it. Okay? He can be powerful, yes, but not, control everything powerful. turned.gif

Nah, I didn't. He has nothing electrical. His is still magical. And I know he's capable of properly Rping a character like that. I don't know you at all. That's why I'm letting him use it.

Shadowflare, your profile, if I remember correctly, had repeated mentions of earth things.. like stonehenge.. and that doesn't work at all.
