« on: April 09, 2013, 11:14:56 AM »
Name and Occupation
- Taken Name: Vurdarist
- Pronunciation of the Name: Vur [fur] –dar - ist
- Given Name: There is no one alive who knows the original name of Vurdarist, and due to the Vurduul parasite, it no longer remembers its original name.
- Character Job: --
- Titles: The First Emperor, The Ruler of Isthmus

Character Mentality
- Character Personality: Animalistic, barbaric and driven completely by the thirst for magic, beyond the fact that it is obsessive and only seeks one thing, Vurdarist has no defined personality.
- Character Likes: Magic.
- Character Dislikes: Fire. Faceless Ones. Other Vurduul.
- Mental Traits: The Vurduul has no mental traits. The host is highly resilient to mind-based magic, but has no other defining traits. The host is permanently in a comatose state.

Nationality and Allegiance
- Race and Nationality: Formerly an Ancient, now a Vurd.
- Allegiance: Neutral/none.
- Reasons for Allegiance: All Vurduuls are driven by the thirst for magic, to constantly evolve and grow.

Relationships
- Allies: --
- Enemies: Broadly speaking, a Vurduul is an enemy to all life. To be specific, Vurdarist’s only significant foes are those seeking to rule Isthmus.
- Family: --
- Friends: --
- Significant Other: --

Character Age
- True Age: 5679
- Appearance Age: Vurdarist’s original form is completely concealed beneath the Vurdwood growths.
- Character Birthday: What would, in modern times, be considered the 9th of April.

Character Appearance
- Character Skin Colour/Ethnicity: Vurdarist’s skin is a withered gray, hidden beneath he gray-green Vurdwood and vines that now compose its body.
- Character Height: 9’10” / 300cm
- Character Weight: 950kg 
- Character Hair Colour: The spikes and vines of Vurdwood atop Vurdarist’s head are streaked with white, with the host’s hair mixing in with the Vurdwood as it is formed there.
- Character Hair Length/ Style: The ‘hair’ is initially several layers of solid, white-streaked Vurdwood (40cm long), but it eventually shifts to just being vines of the same colour,  (60cm long).
- Character Eye Colour: Vurduuls do not rely on sight, and where one would assume the eyes to be located, there are only two empty holes, which constantly leak sap, coloured an unhealthy looking green.
- Character Description: Vurdarist’s lower body is simply a mass of wood-plated vines, which coil and wrap around most of Isthmus, centered around the First Throne. Its torso is about 60cm wide, and 40cm deep, and barring the small hollow within that contains the host’s body, is composed of plated Vurdwood and layered vines, providing some mobility.

From the Vurdwood-spiked shoulders extend two massive arms, each one 1.5 meters long, and averaging a diameter of 20cm. The arms are made of alternating layers, swapping between coiled vines and plated Vurdwood. The most humanoid aspect of Vurdarist are its hands, each featuring four fingers and a thumb, though they are composted of coiled vines and mostly plated with Vurdwood. There are gaps in the Vurdwood covering the hands, to allow for greater mobility.

The best description that can be applied to Vurdarist’s head is draconic, featuring an elongated jaw, with spikes atop the head being swept back. The jaw features two layers of ‘teeth’, composed of densely compacted Vurdwood, and the inside of the mouth is teeming with small vines, including a larger one, which resembles a tongue, but can extend to a metre in length.

On the back, near the shoulder blades, where one would expect wings to be located, are two bunches of Vurdwood-tipped vines, which generally lie coiled around each other, to form a single tendril on each side. However, when required, Vurdarist can uncoil the vines, giving it a multitude of dangerous weapons writhing on its back.
- Character Attire: GIANT TREE PLANT DEMON.

Habits and Mannerisms
- Character Voice: Vurdarist cannot speak.
- Speech Traits: --
- Habits: --
- Mannerisms: Vurdarist tends to lacerate the area with vines, aiming to capture any foes quickly before they can deal damage.
From there, they are impaled on vines and have any magic feasted upon. Non-magical beings are merely infected, and then imprisoned, before being released once the Vurduul takes over.

Weapons, Equipment and Artifacts
- Large Equipment: --
- Small Equipment: --
- Pocket Items: --
- Ammunition: --
- Weaponry: --
- Magical Equipment/Artifacts: The First Throne.
- Other: The Frozen Citadel of Isthmus.

Magical Parasite
- Magical Affliction: Vurdarist is a fully developed Vurduul, reaching the point where it can accurately be described as the single oldest Vurd in existence.
- Inflictee: Vurdarist was infected by a Vurduul.
- Benefits: The ability to consume magic, and greatly resist its effects. Passively being able to sense and detect magic. Rapid regeneration, and the ability to produce Vurdwood.
- Downsides: Any exposed flesh takes more damage from blunt trauma. Permanent coma for the host.


Goals, Motivation and History
- Major Goal: Vurdarist mindlessly seeks to consume and control all magic.
- Minor Goals: To finally expand beyond the walls of Isthmus, into lands that are more magically rich and lush with life.
- Reasoning behind goal: All Vurduuls are driven by the need to gather and consume magic.
Having a grasp on lush land will increase the rate at which Vurdarist could continue to grow.
- Motivation: Not really applicable, crazy tree thing grows and consumes, as that is all it can do.
- Bio: After being infected with the Vurduul, Vurdarist’s backstory is akin to watching grass grow. Only, with more blood and death, and taking the First Throne in Isthmus, only to be imprisoned within it soon after.


- Additional Notes: There we go. Now Isthmus is no longer undefended, and there is some big bad Antagonist for combat. Also, a Vurduul. Huzzah.
- Suescore: -25. lolwut.

It doesn't matter where we go, there's always someone that doesn't agree with us.

Nope.
It cannot move from Isthmus.

But, I do have some plans for a Vurduul host that resists and isn't turned into a mindless beast, but that's for a bit later on in the MRP now.
