Moon is originally native to an alternate reality. Moon’s country was a pre-industrial, highly religious society in a desert region. Here he was one of six priests hand picked by his people’s god, Arvind. Moon was a very well respected member of his community and he led a very peaceful and happy life… Until one day tragedy struck as Arvind turned the six priests into mad killers, reaving any life that fell before their gaze. Moon was the sole survivor of this catastrophe, leaving him alone to be responsible for the massacre of his people under the command of his cruel god.
It was then that Moon met Jester Kipepper, a woman capable of moving between alternate dimensions. Kipepper tended to Moon’s injuries and convinced him to abandon his god and follow her instead. Moon accepted and became a member of Kipepper’s group: The Jesters. Kipepper then took Moon’s right eye in exchange for an enchanted keffiyeh that has the ability to restrain Arvind’s curse and stop Moon from killing. Moon now travels from dimension to dimension with Kipepper and the rest of the Jesters. Personality:
Moon was raised as a scholar, teacher, and a priest. Due to this upbringing, Moon is very patient and reserved. Normally, he would hold himself and others to a strict moral code, but his experiences have left him broken in that regard. However, he will still try to make well-informed compromises rather than resort to violence. He is filled with intense self-loathing because of what he was made to do to his people, and often is lost in thought reflecting on this.
Regarding Kipepper, Moon is actually deeply in love with her. Thanks to her rhetoric, power, and all that she’s done for him; Moon finds Kipepper to be his lone source of comfort. He realizes that Kipepper is far from the best person, but his will is so weak now that Moon doesn’t care that he’s being used. He can get exasperated with Kipepper, but he never refuses her. Abilities:
Moon is burdened with a power that makes it so that he unwillingly “locks on” to any living creature he looks at. This will only take effect on organic creatures with a brain and/or heart-like core organ. Moon is restricted to only being able to see what he is locked on to. Everything else becomes invisible to him, even his own body (eyelids included) and weapon. Moon’s world becomes darkness save for his target, and light is no longer a factor in his ability to see. Moon is compelled to kill the one he sees. Being locked on to someone drives Moon into a murderous rage that he is powerless to resist. Once his target is dead, Moon’s vision is freed up again.
The only thing that Moon is not capable of seeing through is the keffiyeh that Kipepper bestowed upon him. So the only way to stop Moon from killing his target is to blindfold him with the keffiyeh. Unfortunately, the keffiyeh is enchanted in a way that Moon cannot remove or adjust it. Only another living being can move or unwrap the keffiyeh. Weapon:
Moon’s weapon is Hemacandra, a divine item given to him directly from the god Arvind. Hemacandra is a symbol of Moon’s former status as a priest. The weapon is bound to Moon, and he can tell where it is at all times, even if he can’t see it. It is more like an extension of his body than an actual weapon. Hemacandra has a large blue eye that follows whoever Moon is locked on to. Moon is unaware of this eye, as it only opens when Moon is locked on to someone. Hemacandra’s most notable ability, however, is that it can change shape to fit the situation, but only while Moon is fighting. Its default form is the staff. Fighting Style:
Moon has no real training or style. He avoids fighting if he can, but once he has a target he turns into a mindless beast. Moon hurls himself at his opponent head-on with no regard for his own safety. He wildly swings his weapon with no kind of grace or finesse whatsoever. If he is without his weapon, Moon will attempt to strangle his opponent. Once Moon gets his hands around someone, he will thrash around and try to slam them about by their neck. One of the most terrifying things about Moon’s locked on state is that he is incapable of stopping himself, even if his body has gone far beyond its limits. Moon will always fight until either his vision is freed up or until he dies. Strengths:
+ Despite not being knowledgeable of the modern world, Moon is quite intelligent.
+ Moon’s travels with Kipepper have made him used to dealing with things he doesn’t understand, like technology.
+ Once he sees his opponent, he will not lose them.
+ Moon is capable of fighting until the very second he dies.Weaknesses:
- Blindfolded most of the time. Needs someone to lead him around ( that would be Kipepper more often than not).
- Moon employs absolutely no defensive tactics.
- No long ranged attacks, either.
- Totally mindless while fighting.
- Moon can’t see obstacles like chairs or walls when locked on.
- Only able to see one foe at a time.
- The keffiyeh renders him unable to start or stop fighting of his own volition. Trivia:
~ Outside Influence:
Named Moon by his mother, who was foreign to his country.
