    SKILLS & ABILITIES


    Naraku has a variety of skills that he possesses from being a half demon. These powers have strengthened due to his possession of fragments of the Shikon Sacred Jewel.

    Special Abilities


    Equipment
    Naraku possesses a samurai sword, however he does not use it frequently. He also possesses half of the the Shikon Sacred Jewel, which is a small jewel that contains immense power. Whoever wields it, whether they be demon or human, become greatly stronger, even so much as bringing someone back from the dead. (However they would die upon removal of the jewel shard). The jewel can only be sensed by those that possess holy powers.


    WEAKNESSES



    While Naraku is difficult to kill, that doesn’t make him infallible. Naraku is still mortal and can be wounded through wearing him down over time. Holy magic is also effective against him, though it must be powerful in order for a ward or spell to work against him. (Ex: a novice priestess could not subdue him with their powers, but an experienced one would have a shot.) If his pieces of the sacred jewel are removed, it will also further weaken him and make him vulnerable.

    His other weakness that wouldn’t be initially apparent is his connection to the human he originated from, Onigumo. Being that Naraku is a half demon, he goes through a period once a month where his body is an unstable state composed of what’s left of his human self and monster parts. Naraku can control when this period occurs and uses this time to replace demon parts to strengthen himself. While he can use his usual powers during this time, he is more vulnerable. He is also in a battle with his subconscious Onigumo and cannot always keep him under control.




    PERSONALITY


    There are two aspects of Naraku’s personality: that of demon who presides over the most control of the body and that of what remains of Onigumo. The half-demon Naraku is a cunning, manipulative sociopath with the desire to become the most powerful demon in existence and takes pleasure in ruining other’s lives. Killing comes second nature to him; however, what makes Naraku truly despicable is how he antagonizes his enemies. He will use what someone loves again them, by either tricking them into becoming enemies or forcing them to fight each other. While he usually relies on minions to do his bidding, he is an enemy that will slowly wear down his enemies until they break, both physically and emotionally. Naraku is a smooth liar and possesses enough charm to convince others to believe him as an innocent. Even when confronted, Naraku will often shift blame on his enemies and play into their weaknesses. He holds no remorse for his actions and continually is seeking ways to remove his human side to fully become a demon. He views his repressed humanity as a weakness as emotions from his human side can affect his decisions, such as jealousy and sadness. Naraku is also arrogant, which can cloud his judgement with the more power he obtains. However, he will easily flee when events turn out of his favor.

    His human side contains that of a thief who is in love with a priestess that held compassion for him. While Onigumo was not a good person by any means, he does not hold nearly the same villainy as his demon self. The thief, while having little sympathy for society after his upbringing, is defensive when it comes to Naraku’s obscene actions and will even fight within him whenever his love, Kikyo, is threatened. Being that he is trapped and unable to control his body, Onigumo is a miserable soul and seeks peace. While Naraku’s demonic side is unable to understand human bonds of affection, Onigumo’s spirit is what still allows him to feel emotions. Due to the pain that Onigumo feels, it only encourages Naraku's cruel behavior of emotionally scarring his enemies.



    APPEARANCE


    Usual Appearance
    [​IMG]

    Naraku resides in the body of a young, handsome lord. He stands at 6’ 3” and has a lean and muscular build, though he appears larger due to his clothes. He has long black hair that flows down to his lower back, with bangs that fall just above his eyes. He wears it either up or down. For apparel, Naraku wears the purple kimono with a matching vest on top.

    Naraku also possessed a marking of a spider on his back that cannot be removed no matter what he tries.

    Disguise
    [​IMG]

    One of Naraku’s common disguises is a large, white fur cloak with a turquoise baboon mask. Often times, his demon puppets will take on this form.

    Demonic State

    When in his weakened state, Naraku has his human head, but the rest of his body is composed of a mass of demon parts.


    BRIEF HISTORY


    Naraku was originally created from a man named Onigumo who lived in feudal Japan. Onigumo was a bandit who was badly injured and near death. A priestess named Kikyo found him and attempted to heal him back to health. Onigumo fell in love with her and coveted her for himself. In order to regain his body and obtain the Sacred Jewel Kikyo possessed, Onigumo let demons feast upon his body. He transformed into the being of Naraku. Naraku tricked Kikyo and her lover Inuyasha into hating each other by disguising himself as Inuyasha and mortally injured her. Onigumo objected to these actions, but the demons within suppressed him deeper into their subconscious. Naraku then sought to eliminate his human self and become a stronger demon with the power of the Sacred Jewel. Being as the jewel was destroyed with Kikyo's body, Naraku plotted and waited for it's return.

    After waiting fifty years, the Sacred Jewel once again reappeared with a girl named Kagome from the modern era who was a descendant of Kikyo. During a fight with a demon, the jewel was shatter into thousands of pieces and scattered across the land. These shards were sought out by demons and humans alike, seeking to complete the jewel again and gain its power. As Naraku began to collect the shards, he discovers that Inuyasha has reappeared to travel with Kagome in search of the jewel shards. To eliminate the threat, Naraku convinced Inuyasha’s brother Sesshomaru to kill Inuyasha. However, this resulted in failure.

    Naraku competed with Inuyasha and his posse to collect as many shards of the sacred jewel as they could. Along the way, Naraku would set various traps for them and sent his minions to defeat them. Those that had been affected by Naraku's villainy, such as Sango and Maroku, ended up joining Inuyasha and Kogome in their quest to stop Naraku. Naraku regained a new body through a young prince, though would continually swallow demons to heal injuries he would receive from confrontations with Inuyasha. After an encounter with a revived Kikyo, he received a large portion of the sacred jewel from her and created incarnations of himself: Kagura and Kanna. Both equipped with their own powers, Naraku used them to sabotage Inuyasha’s party and to do Naraku’s bidding. He created other various incarnations as well, but they all resulted in defeat.

    Onigumo wished to free himself from Naraku, so Naraku allowed him to break free of their body. Onigumo took over the body of a monk and wreaked havoc on the locals to find Kikyo. Naraku went to kill Kikyo while Onigumo was away but found that he couldn’t control the demons within just yet and was forced to reabsorbed him.

    His demonic body still incomplete, Naraku then attempted to absorb Sesshomaru by kidnapping his human companion Rin and tricking him into a fight. However, this resulted in failure as Inuyasha came in time to release Sesshomaru from Naraku's grasp and Naraku was forced to flee. Injured, Naraku hid in a mountain where he tricked a priest into created a strong magical barrier around the mountain. This barrier protected him from his enemies and contained his miasma. Briefly, he left to attempt to absorb another demon, but was defeated by Inuyasha and retreated to the mountain to continue his recovery.

    It was during his time recovering in the mountains that Pandora’s black cords pulled him into another universe.



    ROLEPLAY SAMPLE


    That insipid Inuyasha.

    To think that he, a half breed, thought he could defeat the great Naraku. Were it not for the power of the Tessiaga, Inuyasha would be nothing more than a fly he could crush in his fingers. Naraku may have suffered defeats, he was closer than ever to achieving his greatest form and becoming a full demon. No longer would Inuyasha and his companions get in the way of his schemes. His quest to collecting all of the pieces of the jewel shard was almost over. Naraku merely had one more task to complete.

    He must remove Onigumo’s heart.

    The pathetic thief had served his use. Now he clung to him like an irritating sore. His whining about Kikyo was hard enough to bare. Even the mark on his back bothered him to the point that Naraku was continually removing it, only to return once more. For some reason, that spider would never leave him. It symbolized Onigumo’s heart remaining within him. Naraku would just need to be patient until the thief’s heart was gone. Then it would all be worth it to finally kill Kikyo and collect the rest of the shards.

    The thief’s voice had been silent since reuniting with Naraku once more. Occasionally Naraku would mock him, pointing out how even if he managed to escape, Kikyo would hold no love for him. If her heart didn’t belong to Inuyasha, it lied with death itself and revenge. That notion would usually cut the human’s resolve in two. What a fool. A lonely, selfish man who sold his soul to demons and now wishes to be free. All the remained of him was that yearning for Kikyo. Naraku himself would occasionally have that feeling pull at him. It only drove him further to destroy her.
