Sovereign Balechild

Sovereign Balechild

About

A strongly ethical and staunchly empathetic creature, Impulse has carved out a niche for itself in the growing collective as a bastion of emotional support.

Sovereign is here to prove that having a caste does not mean that is the only role one can fill in life. It affects what they physically can and cannot do, certainly, but they are a beloved equal to their siblings — just as Yiiupuess can be and deserves to be, as they frequently remind the xeno.

They don’t do much hive maintenance, hunting, cleaning, or busywork that their caste would suggest, but instead spend their time keeping tabs on their compatriots, working alongside them as a means to check in and see how their heads and their hearts are doing. They are quickly developing a good set of language and tools to offer emotional support to those around them, which they do with a sympathetic and down-to-earth cheerfulness that is hard not to feel right at home with!

Wants

To learn about the mind and heart and how they function. To have the people around them happy and healthy and comfortable.

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.

Amber Bindings: The ability to spit a yellow-gold liquid that rapidly hardens when it strikes any solid surface, encasing it in a hard shell comparable to amber.

Sundew Skin: The ability to secret a sticky colorless fluid from between their chitin plates. It does not impair the Balemex’s movement but acts as a very strong glue, entangling and slowing the movements of any other creature that comes into contact with it. It will not harden as the Amber Binding ability does.
