"When the word shatters, and the gods die; when the stars fall dark and the cosmos grow still, what will remain but the night? Darkness came first, and it will be the last. Thus, we children of the night are eternal."
I was born about eighteen years ago to the Goddess Nyx and a rich businessman named Samuel Aenar in England. I grew up constantly on the move. As the Chief Marketing Officer of a consumer electronics corporation my father was required to travel the world on a monthly basis and, with no one to leave me with, often brought me along for the ride. Thus I visited the majority of developed countries. However, that doesn't mean I was allowed to idly sit around. I spent half a month learning Kendo in Japan, unwillingly studied painting in Austria, survived in the North American wilderness for a week, and played soccer with some of Brazil's best. Unfortunately, all good things must come to and end and it just so happened that Athena had already marked my father as her own, and in the weeks after my twelfth birthday things took a turn for the worse. My good friend Cassiopea Black warned me of what was going to happen, and even though I had no idea at the time, I saved my own life by telling my father what sounded like a silly story.
He panicked; together we flew to the US on his private plane and from there things went down like this: the plane was intercepted by Athena, my father was killed, my mother intervened, and the plane crashed in flames. Being the only survivor, I wandered for a few weeks, utterly depressed and confused, until I was found and brought here. I may have survived that day, but Athena still got the last laugh. Now the night will never give me solitude as my hair and eyes have been turned the brightest white. Fortunately for me, and perhaps unfortunately for you, I don't need to hide.
Combat & Abilities
Weapon of Choice:
Quests Been On:
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure weapon out of pure shadows which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. This can also be used for other non-combative objects, but within reason, something might be shaped like an iPod, but as shadows do not have any working parts and source of electricity, such as batteries, they would not actually play music.
Children of Nyx can create solid bullets out of shadows and fire them from their fingertips. The bullets fly fast enough to possibly tear into an opponent’s skin.
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a dome of solid shadows around them which will defend against attacks for a short time.
Children of Nyx have the ability to conjure a cloak of darkness which will blunt physical attacks, but slows the movement of the conjurer.
Children of Nyx are innately stronger and are slightly less drained by their powers during the night.
Children of Nyx can see perfectly in the night as if it were day and darkness in general.
Children of Nyx can communicate with and command nocturnal animals.
Children of Nyx, during the night, sense any motions in their vicinity (up to roughly a city block away). Large, rapid movements are easy to distinguish, while smaller, slower movements blend together like background noise, requiring focus to single out.
Children of Nyx have the ability to Shadow Travel,to teleport from shadow to shadow; the further the distance, the more is energy drained.
Children of Nyx can bend shadows around them, concealing them for a short time.
Children of Nyx are able to create complete darkness in a small area for a short time, extinguishing all light sources. They can also perform this power to a lighter extent, by putting out a single light bulb or candle with a thought.
Children of Nyx can telekinetically move and transform their shadow constructs. The more constructs moved and the bigger they are, the more energy is drained.
Children of Nyx have the ability to create intangible stars, which will light an area for a short time.
3 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx can cause true night in an area for a short time, blocking sunlight over a battlefield. Their passive boosts and the abilities of other demigods are affected accordingly. This effect lasts for at most a minute before fading back, and can only be used once a day. They can also create a pair of shadow wings to fly with (which drains less energy than shadow travel).
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx are able to create up to seven nocturnal animals, no larger than their normal sizes, to serve them for a short time. While the animals are summoned the user is slower, and they are drained whenever one of the animals is harmed or when the animals are released.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Nyx have the ability to shed their flesh and turn into a state of pure night. While in this state, the user is granted flight and their existing abilities become stronger. They are intangible in this state and anyone they touch has their vision stripped away for the rest of the transformation; however, once the user changes back they will be extremely drained and immobile for a long time. They would possibly pass out.
