SKILLS & ABILITIES

Metaverse Skills
The following skills only exist in the Metaverse.
The Metaverse can only be accessed through an otherworldly phone-app.

In reality, he is just a nerd who falls down easily.

Thief Vision (Third Eye)When Ren concentrates, he can pinpoint random details in the world around him; be it a high value in an item, the toughness of an enemy, or a good hiding spot. He normally squints while doing this. Out of all his Metaverse skills, this one is actually the closest to existing in real life. Ren is a highly observant person naturally, who tends to notice minor details that most miss.

Magical Girl OutfitWhile in the Metaverse, Ren's clothing changes if he's presently seen as a threat. Duster, red gloves, boots, and a white mask - all suddenly appear on his body.
As his friends say while he's kickin' ass - lookin' cool, Joker.

GymnasticsUnlike in reality, Ren has rather good reflexes and general movement while in the Metaverse. A backwards handspring before diving into murder the enemy, just feels normal.
Meanwhile in reality, he regularly trips over dead leaves.

Sneaky SneakHe's rather good at keeping to the shadows; sliding from behind one wall to another with ease. This ability doesn't really translate to reality at all. While he's a good eavesdropper, he tends to be too recognizable for his own taste.

Summoning PersonaThe source of a majority of this power, comes from him being a Persona User. When pushed to his limits - while in the Metaverse - he was forced to accept himself on a level that allowed him to basically form of a pact with his Shadow Self (aka the version of you that exists in the Metaverse). Unlike many who possess this power, he is able to use multiple personas. Most people are simply linked to one, which is their most inner self, personified into a literal thing. Ren, on the other hand, has the Wildcard ability, which allows him to capture new personas, and use them with ease. At his very core, however, the Persona which was born from him, is Arsene. All other Persona he has ever used, have come from either capturing them while running around the Metaverse, or fusing the one's he's already captured.


Learned Skills
So CraftyRen is naturally someone who's constantly fiddling with...everything. Normally it can be seen with him spinning his pen or twirling his hair; but other times he actually does something constructive with it. In the past, he's built computers. Only one was from scratch - the rest was replacing parts in fully working ones. He also has learned how to make lockpicks; most of which are pretty weak and break after only once use. If given the right materials, however, he knows how to make a pretty strong one.

CookingBefore his probation, Ren never had much interest in cooking. He made himself eggs and toast a few times, helped his mom stir some batter; the basics. However, once Sojiro started showing him how to make curry, he began to take more interest in it. He's actually gotten rather good at cooking it. But...just it. His cooking expertise begins and ends with curry.

BrewingSpending nearly a year in the attic of a cafe, led to him working there quite often on evenings, and sometimes Sundays or holidays. While it slowly made him comfortable with the equipment and techniques used for brewing coffee from scratch - he also learned quite a bit about creating unique blends, from his temporary guardian, Sojiro. He knows he's not nearly as good as Sojiro is, but honestly does make a rather good cup of coffee.


Persona
Ren has the ability to summon up to twelve different Personas. Before the Metaverse in his world was taken down by winning a fight with a literal God, he had roughly eight in his stock. However, thanks to both the Metaverse disappearing, he's back down to the Persona that was born from him. After a year within Pandora, Ren reconnected through Satanael through figuring himself out both mentally and physically - getting back to a headspace where he was stable enough to handle it. And...the Mara just comes from exploring Pandora.

It should also be noted that Persona can only be utilized within the Metaverse.
In reality, they simply exist within Ren.

Arsene
"I am the great thief, Arsene! You need my help once more...? Very well, use my power wisely."​

Despite capturing far more powerful Persona over the course of a year, Ren kept his original. Partially out of fondness, partially because it felt like he was erasing a part of himself. Arsene was - by far - not his most powerful Persona, yet he uses him regularly. He would use unwanted other Persona to strengthen him over time, as well as gave him useful moves via cards. Cards basically allow you to apply any move you want to any Persona you want.

Weak To - Ice & Bless Skills
Resists - Curse Skills

Eiha - Light Curse Damage to 1 foe (original skill)
Sukunda - Decrease agility for 1 foe temporarily (original skill)
Mediarahan - Heal all allies for full health (given via strengthening fusion)
Ziodyne - Heavy electric damage to 1 foe (give via strengthening fusion)
Megidolaon - Severe Almighty Damage to All Foes (given via card)
Makarakarn - Erect shield on 1 alley to repel 1 magical attack (given via card)
High Counter - 20% chance of reflecting Physical attacks (given via card)
Spirit Drain - Drains energy from one foe (given via card)

Satanael
"I am Satanael. You would slay gods to protect the justice you believe in... Very well, I shall once again become your mask."​

Satanael is a Persona Ren used to fight a literal False God back home; it is the embodiment of his full potential. With the loss of the Metaverse and a wildly deteriorating mental state after the fight, he lost touch with his Persona. After about a year of recovery, Ren finally has reached his full potential and able to reach out and have contact with his Ultimate Persona. However, while this Persona appears near all-powerful, it is extremely taxing to use. Originally meant to be used as a last-ditch effort when the world was about to fall into chaos, constant use would not be healthy for Ren. If used while already injured or hurt, he'll likely pass out. Nosebleeds common, even when using the Persona while fine.

Absorbs - Curse
Blocks - Bless
Resists - Physical, Gun, Fire, Ice, Electric, Wind, Psychic, and Nuclear Attacks

Maeigaon - Heavy Curse damage to all foes
Megidolaon - Severe Almighty damage to all foes
Survival Trick - Survive an attack that should kill Ren, but with barely enough health to stay conscious
Riot Gun - Severe Gun damage to all foes
Cosmic Flare - Severe Nuclear damage to all foes
Heat Riser - Buff attack, damage, and agility for an alley for a short period of time
Unshaken Will - Immunity against all mental ailments (but doesn't stop depression and anxiety)
Victory Cry - Full recovery of both health and energy after a successful fight

MaraThis Persona is literally a dick on a chariot that Ren acquired because it was funny. It's mostly useless.

Strong - Fire, Nuclear, & Curse
Weak - Ice, Electric, & Bless

Bufu - Light ice damage to one foe
Sukunda - Debuff agility of 1 foe for a short while - aka slow a bitch
Brain Shake - Medium Physical damage and inflict Brainwash (medium odds) to 1 foe (given via card)


Pokemon
While in Pandora, Ren embraced his inner child and went out hunting Pokemon.

DittoThe shiny blue Ditto is a gentle blob that prefers turning into helpful objects rather than actually fight. Normally seen as a second watch, a cup, or sunglasses, Ren typically has his Ditto on his person. However, Boss does have the ability to duplicate his opponents if he so wishes - down to their abilities. But...he also refuses to fight. Once he turned into a cactus instead of actually wanting to throw down.


Aura
Within Pandora, Ren had his Aura unlocked by @Ozma here. When activated (through concentration) this naturally allows him to have much higher defenses, be a bit faster, and a bit stronger. It's essentially a natural personal shield that he can turn on. When he takes too much damage, however, it breaks, and he's likely to fall unconscious. Ren's Aura's color is an iridescent red that almost appears black in some instances.

Semblance: The TricksterWhen an Aura is activated, it can come along with a bonus "power" of sorts. For Ren, it ties back into his Persona abilities - creating a bridge between them and reality. In short, when Ren's Aura is active, he can summon his Persona in reality. Unlike normal summoning in the Otherworld/Metaverse, it takes far more concentration and he can lose control of them easily. This causes them to attack him in order to break free of essentially their prison within him. Also unlike summoning in the Metaverse/Otherworld, he attire doesn't change, but his eyes are yellow as long as his Semblance is active.



WEAKNESSES

NEVER SAYS NO
The phrase 'go with the flow'...he kinda takes too far. If anyone asks pretty much anything of him, he'll say yes. At this point in his life, he's just sort of curious what happens next.

VISION
Typically, Ren can be seen wearing glasses. However - unlike many who wear glasses all the time - he's not near-sighted, but rather far-sighted. The lenses are progressive, going from a near-non existent prescription, down to one he needs for reading. While his vision isn't terrible at close range, he still easily gets headaches if he doesn't wear them for long periods of time while trying to read. Originally, he only wore them to class. Thanks to his rather dramatic backstory, however, he started wearing them more often to both soften his appearance, and make his expressions harder to read.

RESTING BITCH FACE
Without his glasses, Ren has a rather intense gaze. Which...just sounds like a fancy way of saying he's handsome. In reality, he just has really cold grey eyes that play a bit too much into his criminal record. People just think he looks guilty, despite him actually being a very kind and gentle person. This is yet another reason why he started wearing his glasses more.

NEXT LEVEL QUIET
Ren, has never once in his entire life, called or texted someone first. He strongly follows the logic of "if they want to talk to me, they would be." This often leads people to thinking he's a cold or closed off person, when that very much is just not the case. He's just a quiet and honestly somewhat shy person.

WILDCARD LUCK
With Ren, his luck only rests in extremes. He'll either randomly bump into the exact person he needs in his life at that exact moment, or get arrested for doing nothing wrong. While this trend can get rather tiring rather fast - at least his life isn't boring. But...sometimes he wished it was.

CAFFEINE
Once, he didn't drink coffee. Maybe he had a sip he stole from a friend or his parents once in awhile. Soda and energy drinks were both few and far between, simply because water was easier to get his hands on, and always present. But then he moved into the attic of a cafe, and things went downhill from there. Ren needs at least one cup of coffee a day, or he'll end up with a powerful caffeine headache, that normally just levels him. It kind of sucks.


FREEFORM

A fingernail slid across the hard surface of of the floor; catching faintly on fine imperfections in the concrete. Half-lidded grey eyes idly watching the action - only jumping away at the sound of a food-tray being slid into his room.

He had been in this place for nearly a month and a half.

Ren stared at the food, considering skipping another meal. If he moved it around on the tray enough, nobody asked questions or got mad. He...knew he needed to eat. He could feel the fatigue from hunger, burning both in his stomach and behind his eyes. Grabbing the tray, he set it on his lap - extending his long legs across the cold floor.

His luck had always been strange.

A day he missed the second page of homework, was the only day that year that the teacher forgot to collect it. A rainstorm ending just in time for him to walk somewhere. Running a bit late, but the train was just delayed enough that he still ended up on time.

The reverse...was just as true.

It was always extremes.

Try to help a woman who was clearly being pushed into something she was uncomfortable with.
Arrested, expelled, and put on probation far away from home.
Randomly bumped into someone who would turn out to be his best friend.
Also bumped into another Universe where everything was trying to kill him.

For every one positive thing that happened, there was a negative of equal value.

He...sorta felt like a pinball.

So Ren finding himself in a solitary-confinement cell within juvenile hall, seemed about the right response for saving the world from a God that wished for ruin.

How was it put?

The game was rigged from the start.

Setting his nearly empty tray back where it was supposed to go, he climbed back onto his cot; tucking his arms behind his head. Eyes locked on a crack in the ceiling. There was...something brown-red that ran along it. Logic told him it was some sort of rust or mold. On darker days, he accepted that it was blood.

It was...easy to let his mind get away from him.

Let the fact that no matter how hard he had fought for everyone and everything, it still wasn't enough to save himself. But...he wasn't in this place for himself. He was here, to save everyone else. To put the final piece into Shido's case to take him out. To protect his friends from being exposed as the Phantom Thieves and being arrested for faulty charges, by angry powerful people.

It was never really a choice.
Which was why he didn't tell any of them, before turning himself in.

They would have tried to stop him.
Find another way.
Gone down with him, because he shouldn't have had to deal with this all on his own.

And he loved them all for it.
But this was his choice.
He was their leader after all.

The light at the top of his cell cut out, meaning yet another day had passed; eyes falling shut because it was too dark to bother to leave them open.

Ren knew the others still had a future.
His died as soon as he shoved Shido away from that woman.
And that was okay.

As long as the others were safe, and Shido went down...it didn't matter what happened to him.

Ren sighed, feeling a familiar pull within his stomach.
The Velvet Room.
It was a different feeling from falling asleep.
Like falling, but knowing where you'd land.

A small smile pulled at his lips, as he thought of the familiar blue walls and soft ground. No longer was it a prison for him, since the Holy Grail had fallen to dust. They were there...to help.

Ren's eyes opened, finding the night sky staring down at him.

This wasn't right.

He quickly sat up - seeing confused eyes staring down at him as people walked passed; quiet comments muttered about him as they went.

This really, really wasn't right.

Pushing himself to his feet, he dusted off his prison jumpsuit and pulled his glasses out of his pocket - not wanting his confusion and fear to be nearly as apparent to these strangers as it felt.

With a tired sigh, he shoved his hands into his pockets and started walking down the street.

Time to figure out if this was good luck.
Or bad.
