    Twenty years ago...

    A lone man was being led up the steps from a platform. This was Loguetown, a popular porttown near the entrance to the Grand Line in East Blue. It was the birthplace and now the death place of the man being led. Countless of people gazed at the large red-coated man as he was led up the steps. He never ceased smiling. His last words were to be his joking of whether he could have the cuffs removed. He was led up and on his knees, awaiting the execution.

    He was Gol D. Roger, the Pirate King. The man who obtained everything the world had to offer. The greatest treasure ever..

    The One Piece

    Before they could go through, a voice ran through the crowd. It asked the question that everyone was dying to know if it would be answered. What happened to his treasure. The One Piece.

    Roger simply laughed before he said his true last words.

    "My treasure? If you want it, look for it! I left everything at that place!"

    The guards tried to execute him as fast as they could, but they were too late. For Roger turned his dying fire of life into a wildfire that spread all across the seas.

    The crowd cheered, the pirates began forming and so on...

    The Great Age of Piracy began...

    Over time, much has happened...

    The establishment of the Puffing Tom, the destruction of Ohara, the formation of the Shichibukai, the Youkai being established...

    And now, talented rookies are setting sail. One in particular seeks to gather you into his crew! Make your characters and prepare to set sail to the Grand Line!


    Hey, this is DVB and this is my One Piece RPG. Basically, we will play as a crew to go through the Grand Line and try and achieve our dreams. We're a Neutral Good/Chaotic Good pirate crew!
    • Some Devil Fruits that would fit in the theme: the Kage Kage no mi, the Horo Horo no mi, A bat Zoan, the wolf zoan and others.
    • Other abIlities could include something like Chemical juggling or other fright-related things.
    • Characater examples could be such as: a swordsman who uses machetes or chainsaws, a doctor who wIelds a scythe and resembles a plague doctor (albeit a bit more modern).

    Character Sheets


    Epitet: (What your character will be known by)

    Race: (Humans, Fishmen, Mermen, and Cyborgs are allowed. Other races will be judged accordingly.)

    Gender: (Male or Female?)

    Age: (Nothing ridiculous please. We don't want 3000-year old rookies run around, now do we?)

    Crew Position/Rank:

    Appearance: (A picture or a decent description.)

    Personality: (What does your character like? What makes him mad?)

    History: (Give us a good idea on where this character comes from. You will be closely RPing with others, so it's a good idea to let everyone else know)


    Devil Fruit: (Canon fruits are allowed. No Logia (yet) or Mythical Zoans, though. You could prove yourself later)

    Haki: (Haki will be allowed during the New World portion of the RP. Simply list the kind of Haki that your character will be able to use. CoK (Color of Conquering King) will be given out only to certain characters.)




    Since this is an R-rated RPG, there may be violence/gore, substance abuse, profanity, and romantic/lustful content.

    However, this is mainly outside the crew. Inside the crew, we're all still friends who care for one another.

    The Pirates' Code

    • No G-Modding.

    • Be polite and kindto one another. Let's all behave.

    • Don't do anything too crazy. There is only so much we could do before we're busted.

    • Good behaivor will be rewarded with upgrades and potiental to learn new, more powerful techniques.

    • Character limit is two for each of us and I expect consistent posting.

    • Everyone is EQUAL! This is something that I must stress. Even though there will be characters who are stronger then other characters in the crew, everyone's character has the same plot importance. Not one character will be more important in the story then another, even the captain.


    The Crew

    Our protagonists; a band of valiant, but troubled misfits gathered from every corner of the sea. Despite the various range of good and bad acts that causes division on their thoughts, these pirates are a tight-nit group and a family that will protect each other from danger. They also have their dreams they wish to accomplish and aren't afraid to turn the whole world upside down to do so.

    Captain: "Slime Lord" Diego D. Vendrix

    First Mate/Navigator: "Ocean Lion" Gao Scorpaenidae

    Sniper/Musician: “Doomsplosion” Dominic Hellsing

    Chef/Swordswoman: "Black Cutlass" Katie Yancuke

    Doctor/Shipwright: "Fixer-Upper Pucker" Emi McCloud

    Scholar: "Hell's Tomcat" Jon Aidou

    Helmsman: "Lizard King" Londed Salamandre

    The above are the 9 mandatory positions that need to be filled. However, one charcter can take on multiple jobs (like the First Mate can be the Navigator) Once there are filled, then the below will be unlocked:
    Seer, Helmsman, Spy, etc



    Led by the Fleet Admiral, the marines are the upholders of justice in the world and the main military of the World Government.

    Fleet Admiral

    The Admirals

    Indidivual Important Misc


    The four most strongest pirates in the world, they all control significant amounts of territory and have massive pirate crews serving under them. Even the Marines fear a confrontation against them...

    • World's Strongest Man: Yonkou 1
    • Yonkou 2
    • Yonkou 3
    • Yonkou 4


    The seven Warlords, a group of pirates who have formed alliances with the World Government in exchange for freedom and other benefits. In return, they hunt down rookies and will aid the Government in battle if the time comes. However, each Warlord has their own agendas that are mostly unknown to the Government...

    World's Strongest Swordsman


    The absolute rulers of the world, controlling most of the islands in the world. It is unimaginable that anyone would even think of going against the World Government and the many countries that are allied with them. Not to mention the amount of forces they hold power over... the Marines, Cipher Pol, Shichibukai, and Commander-in-Chief all kneel before the World Government's leaders.

    Name: Diego D. Vendrix

    Epitet: "Slime Lord"

    Race: Human

    Gender: Male

    Age: 18

    Crew Position/Rank: Captain

    Appearance: Diego has a rather boyish face. His hair is black with subtle patches of very dark brown, mainly in the tips. His hair is kept trimmed and neat, however the ends on the back of his head are messy and spiky. He has a growing scruffy beard. He has slightly bigger than average eyes, which are chocolate brown. Unlike most guys, you can see the color of his eyes. While not having the same intensity as Hawkeye, his eyes have been a source of fascination. Having undergone serious training since boyhood, he is a very well-built young man. Not bulky, but with some evident muscles, much like post time-skip Usopp, though shorter. His body type has been described as stocky, though he is also a bit trim. He has a rather light olive skin.

    Diego wears a black tunic with a red undershirt. This is followed by durable and comfortable black pants and some special moccasins. It is a rather simple get-up, but he really doesn’t need much. He will change his outfit depending on the area though. He treasures his glasses and has a bizarre medallion attached to a sash tied around his chest. The medallion is made out of some sort copper-like or gold-like metal. It has D V B inscribed on it with abstract symbols etched. It can be opened, but it is really hard to. The medallion holds sentimental value as it was the only thing he had when he was found. He also treasures a basic necklace. It appears to be a basic steel chain with smooth piece of iridium. He received from his mentor and plans to return it to him in the New World.

    Personality: Diego is a warm and emotional person with an occasion fiery temper and an adventurous spirit. He is very empathetic and has a great desire to help people out. Beneath this outgoing personality, Diego is a shy and quiet person. He is also a very artistic individual as he will often draw whenever he gets the chance to do so. He is very loyal, but can come on as clingy, especially around girls. He also likes to cook. When in serious situations, he knows it is time for him to use his intelligence and strengths at their full capacity. He is very creative and known to be devious for his ideas. He is regarded as being very smart in many aspects.

    He has his faults, however. Some of these are being blunt, sarcastic, picking fights, laziness and often day-dreaming during certain moments and saying a weird comment afterward. He may also show some malevolent intent or hold grudges for a while. He may even show cruel moments, characterized by a crazed grins and shadows under his eyes. He is prone to snarky or blunt comments and is often unable to figure out what to do in situations with people so will often mess things up, though he means no harm. Despite this or because of it, he tries to overcome these traits so people don’t judge him on his faults and see him as a good person.

    Neutral/Chaotic Good


    Diego has an extremely enigmatic history. He was found in the ocean by a librarian. They lived on Mirrorball Island, specifically in a small metal-working town. The librarian tried her best to raise Diego and they were relatively happy, though he had arguments with kids his age because of his eccentric behavior. While his parents knew it wasn’t his fault, they needed to find an outlet for his anger. It was this that the librarian decided to approach her boyfriend, a retired Marine Captain and blacksmith.

    He decided to take care of Diego by teaching him to blacksmith for discipline as well as basic Marine training when he was unable to focus. Although Diego was not exactly built athletically, that was changed with the training his father-figure put him through. Diego was once asked if he would be a Marine. Diego didn’t give much though, though he claimed no, because something about the marines seemed off. His instincts were correct as over the years, his mom became unhappy and his father-figure would avoid speaking of the Marines at all. Diego would sometimes peek in and would hear. He would hear whispers of surprise, moments of quiet thinking and mutterings of indigence. One day, he found that his mother was in grief while his father, having married a while ago, gave him the news. Her brother, also in the Marines, was killed supposedly for treason.

    However, what unsettled them was the truth. She had kept a large amount of letters documenting what her brother had told her. What he read disturbed him.

    There were notes about slavery, the mistreatment of people and even a conspiracy involving an island. Diego had gone out hiking to think. However, he ran back to the town when he saw smoke. It was a massive fire that had occurred. Both of his parents were killed and the other thing found were a pack of matches, special types used in the Marines. Crushed by the tragedy, Diego began nearing insanity as he stumbled through the pier until he collapsed into the water

    He woke up to pirates docked on the shore. In front was a man who was covered in water. He has silvery hair and pale skin though he looked strong. His name was Irid Cosmium . They then returned Diego to the town where they stayed. Diego spent a lot of time with them and viewed Irid as a mentor and an idol. From his stories of the Grand Line and of the Pirate Kings and of Diego found his dream.

    He wanted to become a pirate, The King Of The Pirates.

    Diego retruend to his training, more fiercely than ever. One faithful day, he found a strange chest with an even stranger fruit, in the cellar of his dad’s smithsho. He took one bite before tossing it away. He then found something leaking from his hands.

    It was a type of goo or slime. It quickly hardened though. Diego put two and two together.

    He ate a Devil Fruit, the Slime Slime Fruit.

    He then began training to emit slime and learn how to wield it in battle. When he visited the remains of the burned home, he got a letter claiming that it was time for him to pick what his mother left him. A book telling about the Way of the Hermit. On how by breathing the pure air and drinking the pure water and meditation, one can gain full control of himself. According to the letter, it was a gift from her brother. Realizing it could help with his new powers and his mental problem, he began studying it, though he still has a long way to go.

    Dream/Goal: To sail the seas and become King of the Pirates

    Devil Fruit: Sura Sura no Mi- Slime Slime Fruit

    The major strength of the fruit is that the user is able to produce slime from their body and maniplulate to their choosing. The slime is usually liquid, but solidies to have gum-like texture. The slime can be stick or slippery, depending on the user's choosing. The slime's texture is pretty rubbery when solid. The slime is somewhat resistant to electricity though it would also melt the slime.

    The slime can be sliced with some force though as a liquid, it is more difficult to cut through. A big weakness is heat, as it would melt the slime right off, but also makes it stickier if the heat isn't strong enough. Water also helps dissolve the slimem but requires a good deal. Hot water or steam is the ideal as it washes and melts the slime.Other than that, the user is also affected by the same main weaknesses as other Devil Fruit users.

    Armament Haki, Observation Haki, Conquerer's Haki


    Sura Sura Trap Orb- Diego creates a ball of slime and launches at the opponent, incasing them in slime.

    Sura Sura Cannonball- Diego created a ball of slime and has it hardned before kicking it at the opponent.

    Sura Sura Smash- Diego creates a ball and chain of slime and pulls his arm out, letting the slime stretch before letting it fire and hitting the opponent.

    Sura Sura Mace- Diego creates the ball and chain before swinging it around to hit others.

    Sura Sura Wall- Diego creates a wall of slime.

    Sura Sura Machine Gun- Diego punches rapidly and a volley of slime ball are fires, sticking onto the opponents.



    All right guys, start signing up. Our characters will grow stronger so don't worry. If you wanna save your Devil Frut slot for a Logia or Mythic Zoan later, you can. We also need to decide on crew name, captain, ship name and jolly roger design. THis will be in the Discussion thread once I see interest in the RPG

    As one character or two separate ?
  6. Truly Deceptive

    Truly Deceptive It is I: ME!

    I was thinking as one... and, seeing how you've changed the theme, and your character no longer uses Kage Kage no Mi:

    Name: Jon Aidou

    Epithet: "Hell's Tomcat"

    Race: Human

    Gender: Male

    Age: 18

    Crew Position/Rank: Scholar

    Appearance: Standing at 5'10" whilst being lithe with a muscular physique of what bulk he does have, Jon is a bit of a bruiser. He has averagely tanned skin, thick black hair, and extremely dark eyes. His eyes are colored red; when illuminated by the sun, they may, at brightest, appear to be a light gold color with traces of red from the arteries behind them. He weighs about 150 pounds and looks like he could be your average high school jock, or even a mediocre college one. He always prefers to wear a black t-shirt and either jeans or sweatpants with sandals. He has remarkably thick hair and eyelashes, as well as slightly thicker than usual eyebrows. His lips are a sharp red coloration which is difficult to not look at. He has a few stitches directly above his right Achilles' tendon.

    Personality: Jon always tries to behave nicely and politely, although he's a bit immature at times, and, quite honestly, doesn't like to interact with other people; he perceives himself as being quite terrible at it. He is a terrible person, and he knows it; he always hopes to make himself better. Even though he frequently does some terrible things, he's always hoping somehow for him to have a chance to make everyone's lives better. He can act maturely if he wants to, but he generally doesn't unless someone intentionally talks about a topic which is nasty and inappropriate for the moment to him. He believes everyone deserves to go to hell, as well as himself (in fact, especially himself), but no one should have to. He believes life is full of suffering which must be overcome in order to accomplish what is good. He believes life's unfair, but people should always try to make it fair. He believes people can do what's considered wrong in order to do what is right. He's a brilliant but self-secluded individual who never overestimates himself, never underestimates an adversary, prefers to think to and conspire by himself, and likes to act out his plans independently and silently.

    Chaotic Good

    History: He was born and raised in East Blue. He has 1 older half-brother and 2 younger sisters. His family was part of the hard-working bourgeois middle-class, and they were always spending their time making an honest living. He was always a brilliant student in school, although he didn't always want to have to do the work. Eventually, after he graduated, he decided to sign up for the Marines; his half-brother had signed up, and had gotten an honorable medical discharge; he now had benefits and recognition. Jon wanted to see whether or not he could make it through the entire thing in order to get certain benefits; however, there had always been a mutual dissension between him and a few of his fellow Marines. One day, a few of his enemies got sick of him, ganged up on him, and tried to give him a beating (even though they were the provocateurs; every response he gave back to them was just always wittier, and they hated him for it). He resisted them for as long as he could, but, eventually, he just took a complete beating. He was a bloody mess. He laid down where they had left him for a few hours, then decided to go home and just call it a day. The morning wasn't quite as pleasant, either, as, just a few hours later, he discovered he had been dishonorably discharged for his misconduct (for having given a couple of them black eyes and broken a few of their bones). Even worse, his testimony couldn't amount to anything against them; they probably wouldn't have gotten court-martialed, and, even then, he probably wouldn't have gotten his old job back. Disappointed, he headed home, ready to go to college for the next few years, only for his family to kick him out. He got sick of life and decided to resort to piracy. He stopped at the bar near his town's local harbor, and decided to get a drink, and maybe just see whether or not he could be accepted into a pirate crew. That day, he didn't find a crew to be a part of, but he did find Lucy, a girl who liked him as much as he liked her. They decided to sleep together for the night; he paid for their stay in a nearby hotel. Once they woke up in the morning, he started to head out the door to buy some groceries just as her father made his way across the hall. He had been searching for her the entire night. Once he got word of where she was staying, he thought he'd pay her a visit. She claimed he had raped her, and, he, running down the hall, decided he had to get the hell out of town as quickly as possible. He escaped, but he had to spend the entire day avoiding everyone he knew, and everyone who could have potentially recognized him. Later on in the day, he heard a general ship for rides which was taking whatever passengers could pay was leaving town that day, and he quickly resolved to get aboard. He paid to get on, and managed to stay out of the way of absolutely anyone who might have been a threat to his prosperity. Later on in that day, it turned out the ride had all been a massive heist by pirates to get all the affluent people in town who would care to pay for such leisure to not only give them their money, but also to hand themselves over as hostages in exchange for even more money once they arrived at a popular port. He had caught word of this beforehand through a worker who cared to hear his story, as well as that he was out of cash, and pitied him. He brought Jon up to the captain, who graciously decided to give him a Devil Fruit (which he hasn't yet been willing to eat). He then set foot at a well renowned pirate port.

    Dream/Goal: To take his old life back; he may not be happy like that, but at least he'd be doing what is right.

    Devil Fruit: Ryu Ryu no Mi, Model: Wyvern (he hasn't eaten it yet; instead, he's going to consume it shortly before the New World's beginning)

    Haki: Potential for Observation Haki and maybe Armament Haki.


    Rokushiki: He may not know it quite yet, but he is extremely skilled at Rokushiki; a decent martial artist at his worst, he has learned several techniques but never actually practiced any.

    Marksmanship: He is a decent marksman, and can shoot accurately up to 100 yards.

    Close Combat: He is very skilled at this, and knows how to use a knife, as well as a bit of martial arts.

    Mythical Zoan Abilities:

    He'll receive these later.

    Plasma Control: He can shoot shining plasma; first, he can only use it moderately, but, as everything goes on, he becomes able to control it much more powerfully.

    Partial Transformation: He can transform partially; usually, this is involuntary, and results in him just growing a piercing scaly tail, shifting his disposition forward, growing a bit larger, gaining sharp claws, and/or growing scales while he's in his human form.

    Dragon Hybrid Form: He can transform into a humanoid dragon; he can become much larger and more massive by doing so, he becomes covered in dark scales, he gets extremely sharp claws and can use wings on his arms, his stance adjusts forward, and he grows a huge dragon tail with a sharp pointed tip.

    Dragon Form: He can transform into a full wyvern; he can grow up to a size of about 40 feet in length initially, with an initial weight of about a ton; he grows wings from his arms and sharp talons, his body leans forward entirely, and he grows a colossal barbed dragon tail.

    Weapons/Equipment: He still carries his old semi-automatic firearm (a handgun) and his half-brother's combat knife with him at all times.

  8. killowatt

    killowatt Truly Bewildering

    It should go without saying that Vesl-18 is far to macabre for the revised tone here, so I've created an entirely separate character.

    Name: Dominic Hellsing

    Epitet: Doomsplosion

    Race: Cyborg

    Gender: Male

    Age: 18

    Position: Sniper/Musician

    Appearance: Dominic is tall-ish and quite thin, pale skinned, wild eyed and with chest-length, stringy white hair under a wide brimmed hat. He wears a tattered blue and black jacket draped with a pair of chains. He is wearing at least 40 belts at any one time, including one sleeve of his jacket, which is comprised entirely of leather strips and buckles. His most notable feature, however, is his right arm. It happens to be an impractically long copper-colored mechanical prosthetic with a four-barreled rifle where the hand should be. On the elbow is an extendable attachment: the neck of a guitar, which can be played with the self-regulating frets. It is somehow bolted on over his jacket, leaving one to ponder if he ever takes it off.

    Personality: Dominic is an aloof young man. His moral compass has eroded long ago into a cold, dry cynicism, free from emotional attatchment and...

    isn't fooling anyone. Truth be told, as his name would imply, “Doomsplosion” is not very good at his chosen trade. Oh, he plays the music just fine. Quite magnificently actually. The problem lies in the fact that the persona he has tried to craft for himself is ludicrous and impossible to keep up. In reality, Dominic is timid, amiable and almost kind to a fault, frequently giving up on the public personality entirely. While not stupid, but does not grasp the subtleties in trying to look cool, as his self-given nickname demonstrates quite effectively, often leaving him looking like kind of a dork.

    Neutral Good

    History: Born on a small, dirty, densely populated island in South Blue criss-crossed by railroads, Dominic was the only child of a single mother. Always a quiet child, he preferred the company of his outlandish imaginary creations and a small ukelele.

    One day, he was sitting near a railroad, reading a book and strumming his ukelele. A train came along. He didn't notice. The train blows it's whistle and Dominic panics, falling onto the tracks. Paralyzed with fear, the train kept coming. He managed to get up enough strength to lurch his way off. Partially.
    Dominic's arm was torn from it's socket in a second and his beloved ukelele was smashed to bits.

    Dominic was terrified. His mother found him hours later, curled up in shock. The area's doctor fitted him with a normal mechanical prosthetic. Dominic later asked the doctor to add guitar strings to possibly replace his ukelele, which his doctor obliged without a second thought.

    As the years went on, Dominic learned to play his makeshift guitar, developing a love of intense, loud music to send messages he couldn't communicate himself.

    This being said, he had tremendous trouble gaining an audience. It seemed that people refused to respect the shy, one-armed boy without the intensity to go with his gritty music. Finally, with his mother in the Autumn of her life, he made a grave decision. He removed his mechanical hand, affixed a gun to the stump, hence forth referring to his arm as “Mercury” and set out to become a pirate, hopefully earning some street cred along the way so that he could reunite with his mother a successful and fulfilled man.

    Dream: To gain notoriety and legitimize his music in the eyes of the world.

    Haki Potential: Observation Haki, Armament Haki


    Sniping: As would be required of someone with a gun for an arm, Dominic is an expert marksman.

    Bayonet: Mercury contains two extendable bayonets. These break rather easily, meaning that he uses them sparingly.

    Flint and Steel: Dominic pours a flammable substance into Mercury, causing the bullets to ignite when fired.

    Arsenic: Dominic tips his bullets with poisons and toxic metals.

    Cobalt: Pours Liquid Nitrogen onto bullets to make them freeze targets. Liquid Nitrogen isn't terrifically common though...

    Intense Resistance to Physical Pain: Nothing really to explain here.

    Equipment: Mercury, A few sheets of music, ammo, gasoline, poison

    Eh, not sure what Gravity manipulation has to do with dragons though not to mention overall it still sounds kinda overpowered. Still not good enough :/

    Maybe you should just consider one role also. We can;t have everyone taking two roles or there won't be enough for everyone.

    Also, I personally get to decide who get's Conquerer's Haki

  15. Delta Hunter

    Delta Hunter The G-Rank MH

    Name: Gao Scorpaenidae

    Epitet: Ocean Lion

    Race: Fishmen. ALL THE SWIMMING

    Gender: Male

    Age: 20

    Crew Position/Rank: First Mate, also serves as the Navigator

    Appearance: Gao is a red lionfish fishman, rendering him on the colorful side of the spectrum in terms of fishmen. His body is muscular, from his early training in the martial arts of fishmen karate, but also from a little pill his father gave Gao to eat to test its affects. He stands at a full six feet and five inches tall, and weighs in at around 135 pounds, almost complete muscle at that weight. His body design matches that of the red lionfish, with the coloration being based around a red and white stripped pattern. Along his back are two long fins that measure three feet long when folded down, but extend out to about two feet out, three feet long, and an inch thick. The spines along the fins, around four, are the red-white scheme, but the fin membrane is a dull pink. A frill circles around Gao’s neck, and normally lays flat. However, when he’s excited or ready to fight, it pomfs out, measuring a foot in radius. The tips of the spines located here are serrated and pointed in one direction. His face is fairly square, like most fishmen, but the right side of his face is smoothed, like an older fishmen, from a tiny experiment he tried as a kid. A band of white goes right across his eyes, with the pattern interchanging, ending with red around his jaw. His teeth are sharp and pointed, perfect for a fishman’s ability to regrow teeth as they are knocked out.

    Personality: Gao is a much respected man. He doesn’t see the point of the monotonous lives of merchants and doctors, or other profession that have one set rhythm. The world is large and vast, it was meant for the navigators and scholars and pirates. As a result, he sees the world as an oyster, waiting to be cracked by the endeavors of a group of exploring pirates. Gao understands the need for Marines, but justice Marines, not murderous ones. He’s not afraid to tangle with the law if it means protecting other’s freedoms, rights, or liberties, to the point of killing Marines or sacrificing himself. He also can’t help himself with freeing slaves, as he will not hesitate to kill the slave keepers either. On the flip side of the coin, he won’t interrupt a fight if it’s already going on, and will walk past injured men on the street. He likes humans, but he can’t stand the sight of them begging at his feet.

    Gao, despite these, has a much darker side to him. He can be incredibly violent when his control slips from his mind, and he will not rest till he proves to his opponents why he’s called the Ocean Lion. He can’t pull back during his rages, but can aim the punches for only his targets. Once his rage does subside, he feels horrible, and often dives down deep into the water to hide for a while, to recover from his wraith. He can be joking also, often splashing his nakama with sea water if they happen to be Devil Fruit eaters, for a quick laugh.

    History: Gao was born to a barracuda fishman and a lionfish fishwoman, in the more peaceful regions of the mermaid island. Even as a child, Gao had the often and poor luck of getting into fights as a kid, getting his tailfins handed to him by all but the wimpiest mermaids. Heck, even a few of them managed to beat him down, even in speed races. His father, a knight to the royal house, finally had enough, and not only enrolled Gao in the fishman dojo, but force fed him a mysterious red and blue pill he stole from the royal family. Gao underwent a day of pain, before standing up from the effects, and becoming stronger and older. He aged a little, not enough to be considered under the after effects, but enough to bulk him up enough to get stronger at the dojo. For 14 years, he trained, and became a black belt. During this time as well, he began to learn about the navigation methods and how to read maps, but he focused more on his dojo training.

    Once he became a black belt, however, Gao’s father was arrested for treason, as the steroid he forced his son to intake was illegally gained, as well as the steroids the father was using. Gao was forced to watch as his father, the brave knight, was publically executed. Gao receded into himself, becoming violent with outburst, but tried to stay calm and above the event. Eventually, Gao immersed himself into the world of maps, winds, weather, and currents that surrounded navigation. At 18, Gao with his water proof maps in a seastone case, boarded a vessel inbound for Eastern Blue. He helped navigate the waters on the way, using his instincts, the birds and fish, as well as the stars to stay on course. He continued his karate training as well, and became convinced that he should create a new style of fishman karate, and become the best sensei he could be.

    Dream/Goal: To become the strongest sensei in the art of Fishman Karate, to develop his own techniques with the style, and to find a mermaid that he finds suitable as a wife

    Devil Fruit: Why cripple a good fish?

    Haki: Armament Haki

    Toxins: Gao’s hands and back spines, as well as his frill, can drip out a painful toxin to be used in his hand-to-hand techniques. It’s non-fatal, even a large amount, but a small amount can cause in credible pain in the target, and might cause breathing difficulties in those weaker to toxins than normal

    Fishman KARATE: Gao is a practitioner in the art of Fishman Karate, having become a black belt. He can use powerful techniques from the style, but he prefers to use those only when he absolutely needs the power, as he wants to develop his own fighting style from this.

    Hydrophiinae Stance: A stance Gao is developing. It involves putting 75% of his body weight on his back leg in the stance, and uses that for support with his front leg only having 25%. The stance’s purpose is to hit fast and hit dirty. With his sharpened nails, Gao aims for pressure points, coning his hands for accented damage. A style with the stance is Gao snapping his hands at his opponent’s eyes. Either they blink from the wind blowing past them, or their eyes get cut. Either way, it gives Gao a perfect opening for his only technique for this stance so far.

    Toxicus centrum pungit: When his opponents guard is down, Gao rushes in and jabs them a hundred times with his poisoned nails. It will result in crippling amounts of pain, leaving his opponent unable to move until the toxin passes out of their system, which will be a day per jab, adding another day for every next jab. In other words, if all one hundred land, they’ll be bed ridden in pain for about half a year.

    Weapons/Equipment: Gao owns a few compasses and astrolabes to help set courses via the stars and directions of the winds. He also owns several waterproof maps, and the case that holds them is made from sea stone.

    What do you mean by Quantum Control?

    Like does he breathe fire or electricity?

    As in quanta; what's emitted by matter when it uses up energy, whether in a reaction like fire or electricity; he can control either.

    So he can control fire and electricty while still being a dragon...

    Closer, but still overpowered.

    I mean, he's a large Dragon! (I think you shouldn't user wyverns. Wyverns are more like the Night Fury in appearance, all sleek and cat-like). If he's a traditional Europrean (Western) Dragon, have him breathe fire, ice or plasma!
