Absolute Balechild

Absolute Balechild

About

Usually found working in tandem with Sovereign, but only slightly less inclined to stick to another hivemate’s side for a while, Absolute sees the strength in working together so well that they actually quite dislike working alone. It’s not a confidence issue, because they have plenty of that, but an efficiency one! They’re the type that is always going to believe that splitting up is the stupid move.

Perhaps wrapped up into his impulse to work closely with his allies and family, Absolute has developed an as-yet unique trait amongst the collective: a sense of humour. He started with puns, worked his way to joke setups and simple punchlines, and now he’s all the way to gut-busters and long rambling stories that end with his entire audience in tears. It’s a skill that no one was expecting, least of all Absolute, but it’s one he’s tended to with all the delight it deserves. After all, what’s more fun than offering one’s loved ones a good laugh?

Someone find this drone a stand-up comedian’s lair; they’ll absolutely steal the show.

Wants

Efficiency, company, fun and good humour. To spend as much time as they can around the people that they love.

Notes

Corruption Powers: Mastery over the corruption of anything around them, organic, inorganic, and magical alike. Balespawn will actively corrupt other creatures to serve them, to punish them, or simply because they find it an aesthetic improvement. If a Balespawn corrupts another creature to the point that it is no longer recognizable in any way as their original species, it may be called a “Bane”. In terminology, corruption and blight may be used interchangeably. The corruptive essences of Balespawn are so powerful that their constant presence in an area will passively corrupt their entire territory.

Immortality: The cessation of physical aging upon reaching maturity and possession of eternal life thereafter. Can still be killed by lethal injuries.

Realm-Traveling: Above and beyond simple teleportation, the ability to realm-travel and cross into dimensions separated from the Nexus by more than mere space and time.

Balefire Aura: The ability to shroud their entire bodies in balefire.

Summon Baleflies: The ability to summon a swarm of tiny balefire spirits in shape comparable to fireflies. They obey their summoner’s commands and disperse when no longer needed.
