Nuvia Antares is the Wielder of the Darq Talons and the only son of Valon, a noble knight who vows to protect the Talons. The Talons served as Nuvia's birthright, and he is expected to learn its abilities through his ageing. However during a raid on his home, the fear inside him triggered the power of the Talons and caused the sealed force to create an explosion that destroyed both those dear to him and those he feared. The blast's radius was within 30 miles, enough to destroy the noble palace he lived in. Legend says that only those who have the same power, those who have Darq Talons as well, are not harmed by the blast but instead are powered up and only the Creator knows what becomes of them. Years have passed and Nuvia has become a mature and self-disciplined warrior. The angels stay away from him, the demons fear him, humans only know him, and the Fallen seek to test him. This person we're talkin' about is me. I can feel it, burning inside me. When I first woke up with these things after the blast, I knew what I was supposed to be. It’s turned me into a beast. Now, I’m learning to control it. Now I know the power within me.

Equipment Info:
Armor: Metal God
Made from the bones of a fallen Metal God. The armor once served as the skeletal structure of a powerful Metal God, but the time came to wage war against the foreign Gods and this legendary god fell tragically. He is rumoured to be alive, but as fragile as a human and a completely different being known as the Unmortal, an exiled race of fallen gods. Leaving his skeletal shell behind in the wastelands, this warrior was resourceful and creative enough to supply armor for himself for battle. To add more comfortability and less metal, he added his tattered banners and bloody flags to supply as a sash and scarf. This is only one of the skins available for him in the game.
_______________________________________________
_______________________________________________
If you're wondering why he moves so unnaturally fast with it is because it is not a Metal from Midgardian soil, but of celestial origin. This allows him to easily jump and swim underwater with the Talons' help serving as a booster and a weight control for the blades he carries.

Weapons: Gunblade, Memental Sword, Darq Talons

The Ripper
A gunblade made from parts of a metal God’s Head. The Fallen Metal god’s exoskeleton also served as means for creating different kinds of weapons. Nuvia also made a custom katana-esque gunblade that can be modified by other people. He has been using this for a long time now. In fact, he only started forging things from the Metal God’s bones since after the Activation.

Memento Mori
A keepsake blade from his father, the noble knight Valon. The truth behind this blade is that it has never been used by the Templars of the Talons because of it’s forgery and heritage. According to the Aencyclopedia Daemonum, this was the first sword that the Darkforger Thamus forged by order of the Dark Council. Since they found it “weak” and said that it was one of the sissiest swords in the sissiest realm of a sissy multiverse, it was thrown away upward into the Hellplane, Stygia. Thinking that the wielder of a more powerful weapon, the Darq Talons could use such a weapon with ease, the Templars gave it to Nuvia as a memento. He named it Memento Mori, which translates to “remember your death”. It’s original name according to another Darkforger was Ssessmitjundorium.
The sword itself is based on a screaming demon head, which is used to store gallons of enemy blood, making it heavier and increasing Nuvia’s urge to kill. Darkforgers actually say that it “screams for vengeance” against demonkind for it’s rejection, which makes it a useful weapon against demons. It is the second strongest weapon against demons to the Cross… for some people. :D As it stores blood, the blood turns into energy within the blade and Nuvia can utilize it to use any mana based attack with the blood or just let it drip, making the sword more happy, meaning Nuvia also has a little blood manipulation knowledge.


The Darq Talons
Ancient weapons that can strike fear even to the hearts of gods and the main focus weapon of the game. These are the authentic ones, as in the ones that were mentioned in the myth and the ones being protected by the Templars. These weapons cannot be colored any other color nor rust chemically. These weapons bend to the Wielder’s Will. Although Nuvia has not mastered these weapons, they are still formidable in a fight. The Talons also seem to have a connection to the wielder, as it is safe to the allies and close friends of the wielder, and lethal to the enemies and rivals of him or her. Others are continuing to replicate these weapons, almost to the extent of being maddened by failure of doing so. But some geniuses such as Richter Tarien successfully created artificial ones infused with individual abilities and power. When Nuvia uses the Talons offensively or when he means he will bring the hurt, his eyes and markings glow bright red, symbolizing death and devastation. The Talons also glow when it senses another Talon or pair of Talons nearby, maybe about a mile within range.
_______________________________________________
_______________________________________________
When using a power with it, Nuvia's eyes glow red and so do his tattoos. The Talons' coils open up and emit red electricity, spelling doom for all hostiles in it's wake.

Actually, there is more than meets the eye with these weapons. But the more vital information is a Spoiler. The only details I can give is that these are the currently recorded strongest ones, although there is still more to learn.

Powers and Abilities (At Last!)

Race Advantages and Appearances
Nuvia is not human at all. He defies the physical appearance and his abilities would be rare or even impossible for humans. His bones are made of a godlike metal and his skin is different of that of mortal flesh, as it is white in color and can regenerate within minutes. His blood is also not from the mortal plane. It is darker and can kill vampires upon consumption. Demons lust for this blood, but it will be hard to get, that is for sure. His hair is white too in color, originally. But due to his sense of style, he put the red extension and others appreciate it. It cannot be cut by ordinary scissors and is described to be as thick as electric guitar strings (O.O). The Ancient Ones (NOT THE MAYA!) described him to have “an iron will and a back as sharp as a demon’s blade”. He also has ancient markings from “beyond” that he was born with. His father said that these are his birthmarks, and he himself said that he doesn’t need to get more tattoos. His senses are very strong and can sense incoming attacks from a mile. Of all the measurements, a mile is the limit of a powerful demigod such as him. All he needs to do to fix his hair again is to either headbang real hard or face a strong wind. He also bears a striking resemblance to his demon ancestor, Strombringer in Human Form. Because of his dark ancestry, the demons and angels either fear him or respect him.

Attitude
Nuvia as a war veteran who has experienced all kinds of crap on the battlefield is also a good tactician and knows his motive well. Being a demigod, he also has his human frailities e.g. he's a liar and a cheater and the notices of his attitude that he is cocky. He is also disrespectful to those who hate him and is often violent and animalistic in battle. He is tough on the outside, and also on the inside. He claims that threatening without physical harm is his "good side" and knows how to take it easy on the ladies too. But he will always have his good side in which he is friendly to people who are not retards or who he trusts and treats them like brothers and sisters. Well... sometimes. :D Negotiates well with factions and factions of warriors from every realm and is partially behind all the coalition parties. He is a very honorable warrior, but he never allows anyone to take the blame, take the hurt, or doing his job for him, as he finds this too dangerous for someone not like himself. He is true to the Warrior's Code or the Bushido as the honorable ones call it.
Knowing this, pissing him off will not kill you, but incapacitate your ability to move and turn you into a paraplegic. :D

Mental Abilities
Even though Nuvia is a Demigod, of course he still has the fraility of the human mind. But that is only how he thinks, not how he uses his power. He takes his time with his enemies even if you manage to piss him off. He is often cocky, but maybe that’s because he thinks faster than a normal mortal, including his ability to memorize after he scans something three or more times. He always looks before he leaps which is a good advantage, but sometimes it may take too long for him to make up his mind. He tries to make up for that. He also appears to be fond of wolf dogs. :D

Combat: Swordsmanship
He himself devised his own way of using two blades, being able to hold both with one hand and even being capable of spinning them any way possible around his talons without hurting himself or cutting his fabric (O.O). He uses this skill to deflect shots from a loaded gun and sometimes just to show off before a fight. He has also learned how to use his Memento with ease not minding it’s insatiable thirst for blood. The gunblade he says is easier to handle because it is lighter and doesn’t need to take up power from any source. The only problem is reloading, which may take long depending on the mod it has.
_______________________________________________
_______________________________________________
He fights rather animalistic and will not hold himself back when you piss him off. He is also acrobatic despite his heavy-looking armor off a Metal God. I think we're forgetting it's not an Earth Metal. :)

The Darq Talons and it’s Uses
The original Talons have the literal Darq power. The said element is a completely different element from Darkness. It is a completely new addition to the Table of Mana, having the abbreviation DQ and having the highest Power Number and least Intake Number. It was discovered by Richter Tarien, known as the Father of Mana and Founder of Darqness. He himself replicated one which took more than a decade to finish with non-stop research and testing. He described Darqness as an element “worse than fire and lightning”. The Gods of Old further say that it is the neutral force’s answer to evil’s Hellflame and good’s Divinefire. With it in Nuvia’s hand, he can now do lots of stuff with it. He can now cook for himself despite his lack of cooking skills and light a cigarette by just flicking the blade off the tip. And although not in full power, these are more than enough help for living.

What Darqness Is (in case you're curious :D)
Darq Energy appears as Red Thunder that is channelled through the original Darq Talons. It is basically channelled as a Neogenerator, which means that it can power an electrical appliance for an eternity, but uses up a lot of power. Thanks to this, Nuvia can charge his cellphone by just holding it. As for getting around places, he can ride along zip lines, since the Talons not only power it's source, but his whole body, making his strength and speed gradually increase. He feeds on any source of Darqness, which is hard to find but you can never get addicted nor overdosed with this energy. The red substance may also help in surging power through you, but will drastically take away stamina. Being hit by this if you're him will only power you up, but as a normal person, will disintegrate you, or turn you into some beast. :D This is considered the rarest element and the hardest to master.

Aencyclopedia Celestia: Demigods of Darker History
Demigods have been known widely throughout the Earthen Realm as Midgardians or Humans who have been given the powers of Gods, or us Immortals. But these Demigods are as frail as the Humans themeselves, including their mortality and capability of dying, despite all the power we granted them. These are not the only type of Demigods, however. Deep below, far away from us up here, there are also Demigods like the ones in Midgard, but they have a dark reputation and striking difference between ours. Demigods with a dark history, or Inhumans, as we call them, still retain the fraility of the Human Mind, but the power source and appearance are different from the ones we know. Inhumans are born on earthen soil with the power of a Hellking or Hellgod. Because of this, they are granted the defiance and abilities of a demon without wings and tails. They retain the Human structure, but their skin is as pale as the surface of the Moon, and their senses as keen as that of a wild animal. Other characteristics are also present in other Demigods like this. One in particular, being the descendant of the Ancient Scourge of the Void, Stormbringer.

Way of Living
Nuvia’s early life as a heir to the Templar’s Order was cut short during the raid. He stopped schooling at second year college and spent 7 years honing himself for his return to society and along with it, trying to forget the tragic incident. Now that he has emerged a seasoned warrior, the world he once knew has changed. More importantly, majority of the inhabitants of Stygia have forgotten or never witnessed the incident, which brings ease to Nuvia. However, many still know him as the son of Valon, which he hates being called as it brings back painful memories of the Activation. Moreover, he has never lost his GAMING SKILLS XD! He is also revered as a hardcore gamer among his friends. Those 7 years, he has also been hunting and training for fights h may encounter. Summarizing how he lived, Nuvia is a man who has endured hardship and tragedy, knowing he should keep moving forward and strive for freedom on his own. And since he has siblings because of the 3-way blood pact initiated by the three noble clans Antares, Therion and Celeste, they have not seen each other since the Activation... or have they? The rest only he knows, so ask him! :D

"it was one of the sissiest swords in the sissiest realm of a sissy multiverse"
I lolled when I saw that line. Memento Mori is a very interesting and cool weapon; definitely my favorite in his arsenal. Btw I think the bg is too distracting. The details on his armor and weapons don't stand out.
