Pride is not something you simply have. It's an investment that you sacrifice in every act your commit, debasing and tearing yourself apart, to win it all back in the ultimate victory.
~ The Valev

WIP! I'm rewriting some stuff.

An immortalized legend of The Consortium.

Valev 'Valev' Valev had a short, yet enjoyable life. He was the only child of a single mother, and attended school every day. His favorite food were hot dogs, which ironically enough, were quite expensive in Noviaa City. Every weekend, he would race across the sprawling urban streets of his home city with all his school friends, admiring the flashing lights of the world he was brought into. He was utterly enthralled. The utter freedom, happiness in every man and woman's face, with magic and partying coming together as one. Adrenaline coursed through his veins, as he felt his heart claimed not by a person, but the marvelous kingdom of Noviaa. On the very first hour of his eighteenth birthday, he left school and signed himself up for the Noviaan Militia, a secular force to be called on at any time for the defense of the empire. After a few successful defenses, he earned the nickname "Doofus With A Gun".

Whenever he was off-duty, he would host bombastic house parties at his apartment, lasting day and night. Some said that Valev's smile was a permanent one, a grin of a man who truly enjoyed everything with an incredible passion, the light in his eyes bright enough to engulf the dance floor and the strength of his love great enough to repel any insurgents. A man who could both look idle, yet be infinitely at work in his strange head. A man who could look simple and easily occupied, but always with some absurd idea or plan beyond the surface. A man who would never say "I love you", because there was never any doubt that he did in the first place.

This man died at the young age of 24.

Backstory

Valev woke up in a dark, damp forest, the air still around him. Scared and alone, he got to his feet, confusion washing over him. Only the smallest rays of light cracked through the immense undergrowth that hung overhead, like a shrouding blanket over a small child at night, leaving only blindness in Valev's eyes. Dirt plastered on his body, his white fur coat stained with mud, hair matted, he stood up and gazed around. It had been so long- he was free, now. Free from the endless grasp of whatever beast existed deep within that... place. He couldn't describe it, or understand it, but he knew it. Memories of floating within existence and non-existence, split across time, having fallen asleep out at sea with no hope of returning from where he came. Now he was alone, on this little forest island.

Years began to pass in Valev's new home. He was in some odd, unfamiliar world, far away from the Noviaa he had known. In another place, or even another time, he built up and developed his magical prowess. He was not living his life- he was merely carrying out the motions.

Valev is a concept and an ideal. Created by the Boon of Souls, Valev became a complicated relationship between The Host and The Collective. The Collective is a mass of all the souls Valev has ever absorbed and used, laying dormant deep within The Infinite Consortium. The Collective is silent and unable to act directly, but can lightly influence worlds and planes through The Host.

The Host is a form of Valev that can take any form and any gender. The Host's mind is split evenly between the new soul that makes up The Host, and The Collective. This allows Valev to, over time, learn and adapt through these new soul's experiences and decisions, while also using The Collective to stay careful and alive.

In the situation that The Host does die, The Collective will attempt to use a limited pool of active, accessible soul power to transfer Valev's soul into another Host. Only the souls collected directly by that Host can be used as a pool of soul power, as they are the only souls he can directly call upon for magic in most circumstances.

This leads to a unique situation where The Collective needs to keep The Host alive, or else it will slowly lose power and perish. Each Host is somewhat different, while still possessing core Valev beliefs and philosophies that come with being one with The Collective. The Collective is, in essence, an afterlife for every Valev that ever was, each one working in unison for the success of Valev, for the future of Valev, and for all that is Valev.

Personality

To say Valev is anything less than bombastic would be a slight to the word itself. He’s a loud, seemingly happy-go-lucky man with a fascination for his looks, new places, and women. He travels the universe with a smile on his face, hopping from body to body, life to life, exploring new and unique things. He’s a blast to be around and can show anyone a whole slew of new experiences without a care in the world for safety. It’s rare to see him not smiling.

Yet, he is not without his flaws. Valev is, at the core, rather selfish. He’ll often prioritize his own wants and needs over others, and is quick to drop an ally if they can’t keep up with him. Valev is also quite childish, having never grown up from his partying days. But when Valev is put on a job, he’ll get it done, even if it’s not quite the most correct way to do it.

Valev’s drive to action revolves around his home world. Valev is a nationalist, taking deep pride in the incredible nation from which he came, while resenting the beast that took it away from him. Deep in his heart, he’s afflicted with a great sadness, knowing that his immortal life has never once been as good as his time in Noviaa, his beloved home land. His plan is simple, yet painful. He shall live as an immortal, passing through The Infinite Consortium and searching for one of two things; the power to revive the world he had lost, or the ability to find a world exactly like the one destroyed. In an infinite universe, there has to be one exactly like the one he was from.

Yet, he has never found it.

His ideals center around absolute freedom, as that's exactly how he wishes to live. If all were to become balanced, in his eyes, perfect society would form from the ashes. He's very decisive and dead set in his ways, unwilling to change his core beliefs if he can help it. Sometimes, this can show how his immortality jades away at his heart, though occasionally events crack that shell and reveal hidden vulnerability within Valev.

Valev's methods very often veer on the side of brutality, sacrificing and harming anyone and anything to reach his goals. This is not to say he doesn't know what he's doing is wrong; Valev instead emotionally disconnects himself from those around him, seeing them as ends to justify a means.

Valev is a proud and strong man who has firm nationalist and quite selfish ideals, but is truly just driven by the deep-seated desire to bring back what he had lost, once and for all. And once he achieves his goal and can hold what he loves so dearly, he will never, ever let it go.

Notable Attacks/Techniques: 

The Consortium's Blessing

As a Consortium Traveler, Valev unlocked the hearth of his hidden, esoteric abilities. Like all Travelers, he has an innate resistance to Soul Manipulation and Existence Erasure on a fourth-dimensional scale, due to their ability to travel the void. As well, he controls the fabric of The Consortium, allowing him to create portals throughout reality to teleport or move from location to location. This can appear as nearly teleporting, due to the awkward passage of time within The Infinite Consortium. Just like any other traveler, he can also meld The Flames of The Consortium, an enigmatic misnomer for a substance that erases the existence and consumes the soul of all it touches. Raw magic can dispel it, but it is powerful in unstable blasts of magic and for burning down the undefended.

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Extrasensory Perception (Can see souls and leylines of magic, even of those invisible), Fire ManipulationExplosion ManipulationExistence Erasure (His flames, while not exerting heat, are very volatile and easy to explode.

It does let him easily dismiss poisons and toxins from his body), Space-Time Manipulation (Type 1; Valev uses his Time Manipulation and Teleportation by entering the Infinite Consortium, a 4-D realm), Soul Manipulation (Absorbs the souls of the weak or dead to fuel his immortality and strength), Power Absorption (Valev can take powers and strength from the souls he absorbs, although taking actual magical abilities is more difficult), Possession (Valev can take over the bodies of those whose souls he has claimed), Non-Physical Interaction (Vayla's attacks intersect on a four-dimensional scale, allowing her to contact ghosts, intangible, and occasionally abstract entities), Dimensional Travel (Travels through the Infinite Consortium to reach different realms and planets), Teleportation via Dimensional Travel (Hops short distances using the Infinite Consortium), Statistics Amplification (Using his magic, he can increase his speed and strength to much higher levels than normal), Immortality (Types 2, 4, and 6; Valev can survive with a large portion of his torso torn out. When Valev dies, he uses some of his soul power to either possess another predetermined body, or randomly reincarnate in one. His strength shifts depending on the body he possesses), Resistance to Probability ManipulationMind Manipulation,Soul ManipulationPrecognition, Reality Warping, Time Stop, Existence Erasure, and Causality Manipulation (The Collective secures Valev's fate, path, and existence from negative outside interference on a four-dimensional scale. Valev's mind is connected to The Collective, which consists of over a billion consciousnesses and soul. Time Stops have no effect on Valev), Self-Sustenance (Types 1, 2, and 3; Valev can refuel and refresh his body with his Anamnesis Technique), Acausality (Type 1; Valev's time is secured by The Collective, and his past has already been erased from space and time). Statistics Reduction and limited Homing Attacks with his Kiri (His dual Kiri lower the durability of objects they hit for around two seconds, and both home in slightly on his targets, before bouncing back to Valev after hitting anything). Resistance to most body-altering effects with Anamnesis.

Attack Potency: Multi-City Block Level+ (Could keep up with an ally who could generate an explosion of such magnitude)

Speed: Supersonic+, higher with Anamnesis (Faster than his previous form)

Lifting Strength: Class 5

Striking Strength: Multi-City Block Class+

Durability: Multi-City Block Level+ (Could take damage from enemies comparable to himself)

Stamina: Extremely High (With the Anamnesis Technique, Valev can continue fighting for as long as he has mana. He could continue a battle for days on end if he was conservative with his magic.)

Range: Standard Melee Range, Several Meters with Kiri and The Flames of The Consortium, up to Hundreds of Meters with weaponry

Standard Equipment: Valev's Pocket Pistol, The Sharpshooter, various other guns, Kiri

Intelligence: Genius. Valev had built up his store of knowledge for over a hundred years, absorbing the memories of entire lifetimes of people. With his body not limited by the confines of human life, he was free to experience and learn so, so much more across his adventures. His combat experience is great, with him having the memories and experiences and skills of hundreds of experienced fighters.

Weaknesses: Valev is woefully overconfident and childish at points. If he doesn't see a reason to be serious, he flat-out just won't be serious. At times, this plays into his favor, since it gives the impression that he's far less than he actually is. As well, he has a heavy dislike for sharing the spotlight.

Just like any other traveler, he can also meld The Flames of The Consortium, an enigmatic misnomer for a substance that erases the existence and consumes the soul of all it touches. Raw magic can dispel it, but it is powerful in unstable blasts of magic and for burning down the undefended.

  • Boon of Souls
One of Valev's primary gifts from The Void. He was given a dominion over the simple concept of souls. Be it the souls found in the infinite sea of The Consortium, or those that fly free after death, Valev may collect these and contribute them to his overall power.
  • The Collective
The Collective is a mass of each and every soul Valev had ever absorbed in his lifetime, even those faded and worn over time. Each one clings to life onto a great mass, powering eachother and taking in souls from those that pass it by within the depths of The Infinite Consortium. It's power is great, but it's condition is weak, and it is unable to wake up. If it were to awake, however, the calamity it would cause would be great, even possibly enough to tear apart The Consortium itself.
  • Absorption
Upon taking in a soul into The Collective, Valev gains remnants of the original owner's capabilities and strengths. He finds it hard to take a soul from a still living target, but upon death, most of the resistances fade away and he is free to take his pickings.
  • Psuedo-Immortality
Valev, in his adventures, dies. He dies quite a lot. However, his supply of souls constantly keeps him alive and ready. Every time Valev perishes, his mind and soul is transferred through The Infinite Consortium, expending hundreds of souls in the process. It’s quite a high-cost exercise, but it allows Valev to live as long as he’d like, albeit constantly transferring around the universe while doing so.
  • Boon of Time
A skill Valev taught himself, Valev is adept in merging The Consortium and reality to create zones and periods of frozen time. He has also often used this ability to manipulate time in order to amplify his abilities and use his incredibly potent Anamnesis Technique, one of the hallmarks in Valev’s arsenal.
  • Anamnesis Technique
One of Valev’s strongest techniques, Anamnesis is a passive enchantment Valev has constantly around him at all times. It is the technique of preserving his own time. Passively, it provides him no need to eat, sleep, or breathe, by constantly refreshing his body to a previous point in time. It also allows him enhanced reaction speeds, his neurons traveling even faster than normal. Not only that, but it protects him from Precognition, Fate Manipulation, and other forms of future and past modifying abilities by constantly securing his own time. This prevents him from being affected by changes to the past, and allows him to constantly be free of determined paths in the future. Not to mention, while this esoteric ability lingers on his form, he does not age and does not tire. It even grants him quite strong regenerative abilities, allowing him to regrow limbs and possibly even more if given enough time.
When actively used, the technique takes on even more abilities and strengths. It allows him to accelerate his passive regeneration and reaction speeds, and can even amplify his speed by speeding him up in time by quite a considerable amount.
Alas, there is still more to Anamnesis. When Valev focuses much of his magical energy into Anamnesis, he can develop massively enhanced physical abilities through restoring his body to his very peak, along with duplicating every attack he makes by drawing forward dozens upon dozens of different versions of himself, to either stack upon an attack to do more damage, or to attack in many different ways at once.
  • Unused Capabilities
In theory, Valev has more techniques involving time that he has yet to master. For one, it is possible for him to learn to observe the future like some of his allies had. As well, some of his allies used their versions of temporal manipulation to reverse an attack out of time itself as a more effective way to power null attacks. While Valev has occasionally dabbled in these abilities, he has yet to fully learn them.

Fighting Style

Valev acts as an incredibly aggressive foe. His battle style may seem reckless, but often times it is strategically put together; every last moment of it. He rushes into war with blinding speed, blitzing down his opponents with onslaughts of powerful attacks, all while learning and playing around his opponent’s capabilities. Examples of this were when Valev managed to collect two out of four medallions in a group event of over eight people, with around two people assigned to each medallion. Valev quickly blitzed down each boss monster he came across in rapid succession, scoring the medals for himself.

Valev does have a bad case of enjoying the spotlight, though, and often puts himself in danger purely out of recklessness. This often comes due to his distrust of other people to keep up with his strategies and ideas, although if he believes he’s found a partner who he can reliably fight with, he will have one hell of a time. One example of this was in Valev’s Guild Trials. These events were meant to be completed by two people; one contestant, and their partner. However, Valev’s partner never showed up for the events, so Valev went past all of them on his own, including fighting in two 2 versus 1 battles against comparable members and winning both.

Equipment

  • Kiri
Often called Kyri, these are two blades Valev most often wields in battle. They resemble a mix between a blade and an axe, and their handle is composed of a spinning mechanic that allows him to whirl the blades around. The two blades are very conductive to magic, and can be channeled with Valev’s different abilities rather well. When tossed at an enemy, they will lock onto the target and lightly home in on them. This means they will curve and turn towards the target, but not swerve 90 degrees. They will chase the target even if the target vanishes behind illusions or invisibility magic.
Upon hitting an object or opponent, they will induce an effect of decreased durability on the object, allowing them to be hit far harder than normal. Valev describes this effect as “...about 20% weaker”, and it lasts for a few seconds. If multiple of them hit in rapid succession, they can lead to massive combo attacks where Valev has historically one-shotted far tougher enemies.
After hitting an object, the blades will then fly back towards Valev, homing back in on him. Valev uses these blades in very complex fashions, bursting down opponents with medium-ranged combos once they slip up and make a mistake.

She is limited to 10 fully powered clones of herself), Illusion Manipulation (Vayla can, with concentration, use her control over time to freeze or loop the photons and molecules in the air to create constant images or sounds that aren’t there anymore), Limited Forcefield Creation (Vayla can freeze her Consortium Fire in the air with Time Magic to make a virtually indestructible barrier for a few seconds), Regeneration (At least Mid; Vayla can restore her body to an original state using Time Manipulation, although it is rather draining.

She can recover from lethal wounds across the body with her various stacking forms of regeneration, including wounds to her head), Limited Invulnerability and Death Manipulation (When at a critical or even lethal state, Vayla can make herself near to impervious to damage and continue fighting for a few more seconds before succumbing to her wounds), Limited Flight (Vayla can temporarily manifest her flames around her to keep her floating for a short amount of time), Soul Manipulation (Vayla absorbs the souls of the weak or dead to fuel her immortality and strength), Power Absorption (Vayla can take powers and strength from the souls he absorbs, although taking actual magical abilities is more difficult), Possession (Vayla can take over the bodies of those whose souls he has claimed), Power Nullification (Vayla can charge her body and weapons with an energy that can nullify and shatter magic even on a level similar to her), Non-Physical Interaction (Vayla's attacks intersect on a four-dimensional scale, allowing her to contact ghosts, intangible, and occasionally abstract entities), Dimensional Travel (Travels through the Infinite Consortium to reach different realms and planets), Teleportation via Dimensional Travel (Hops short distances using the Infinite Consortium), Statistics Amplification (Using her magic, he can increase her speed and strength to much higher levels than normal), Creation (Vayla can make constructs with mass out of fire), Shapeshifting, HealingImmortality (Types 2, 4, and 6; Vayla can survive with a large portion of her torso torn out. When Vayla dies, he uses some of her soul power to either possess another predetermined body, or randomly reincarnate in one.

With Ruby Tuesday's Beggars Banquet, Vayla can take people's abilities via kiss, murder, of consensual blood transfusion). Life Manipulation, Matter Manipulation, Telepathy, Flight, Transformation and Heat Manipulation with Beggar's Banquet (After stealing Ruby Tuesday's abilities, she became capable of using Ruby's lipstick in order to spread rot via a kiss, harden and soften her body, corrode metals quickly, communicate via the mind, fly, manipulate heat around her, and more. She can also transform into her victims, such as Ruby and Skeletron), Resistance to Probability Manipulation, Mind ManipulationSoul ManipulationPrecognition, Reality Warping, Existence ErasureCausality Manipulation, Power Nullification, Conceptual Manipulation, and Time Manipulation (The Collective secures Vayla's fate, path, and existence from negative outside interference on a four-dimensional scale.

Vayla can also freely walk within time stop all the way up to a fourth dimensional level, and can negate time manipulation with her own magic.

Statistics Reduction and limited Homing Attacks with her Kiri (Sher dual Kiri lower the durability of objects they hit for around two seconds, and both home in slightly on her targets, before bouncing back to Vayla after hitting anything), Statistics Amplification with The Berserker (The Berserker, while unwieldy, can be amplified with magic to inflict an extremely high amount of damage), Summoning with Icon of The Kraken (When a weapon or item with the Icon on it hits an organic target, multiple ghostly tentacles rise from the area around them to attack and restrict that target), Ice Manipulation with Frostlorn (Frostlorn freezes the area around whatever it hits), Invisibility with Scythe of the Unseen (The Scythe can transform into an invisible, nigh insensible emblem that locks onto any item and allows Vayla to mentally track it perfectly), Information Analysis with Identification Daggers (When the daggers stab into an object, Vayla learns an extensive amount of information about the target. She can mentally search for more information at will. The longer they stay in, the more he knows), Statistics Amplification with Goliath Armor (While worn, whenever Vayla amplifies her speed, instead he amplifies the armor’s durability by a relative amount), Limited Pocket Reality Manipulation with Ringleader's Fists (When equipped, a circular ring around 15 meters in radius will appear around Vayla and anyone in it, trapping them in The Ringleader's Reality.

Stamina: Extremely High (Even without Anamnesis, Vayla has survived an incredible amount of abuse and injury from enemies equipped to counter and defeat them. With Valev - The Gamer, Vayla is incredibly high in stamina of all aspects, able to last near months on end).

Range: Standard Melee Range, Several Meters with Kiri, Hundreds of Meters with The Flames of The Consortium

Standard Equipment: Valev's Pocket Pistol, The Sharpshooter, various other guns, Kiri, The Berserker, Icon of The Kraken, Mana Emblem, Frostlorn, Scythe of the Unseen, Identification Daggers, Goliath Armor, Ringleader's Fists

Intelligence: Supergenius. Valev's Collective has reached a total of over five trillion souls, five trillion memories, five trillion lives. Using a portion of The Collective, even in human form, Valev can calculate at a score of nearly 250 PFLOPS. Their skill in combat has grown to a capacity that they had managed to defeat four clones of herself in hand-to-hand combat, all at the same time, through exploiting the few abilities available to only herself. She has bested Death in combat, through exploiting his kindness to avoid his all-powerful soul manipulation. Outside of just one versus one combat, she is a descendent in a long line of incredibly skilled and adaptable revolutionaries, known for combining new and ancient magical tactics in the most ideal way possible to exploit enemy techniques. She is considered one of the greatest threats to The Federation not because of raw power, but due to immense willpower, dedication, and brutal cunning that has brought down empires for millions of years, on such a scale that her crusades have permanently left areas scarred and lacking governance at all, while those with governments hope that she never comes knocking on their door. Her brutality earned her the name “The Accursed One” among Jury soldiers. Despite her seemingly senseless bloodthirsty style of warfare, there is technique to the madness. She puts great thought into targetting and planning, and created many of the greatest theories of Consortium Warfare, such as One-Man-Army Combat. This immense knowledge and intelligence comes from every last mind in The Collective contributing their thoughts and ideas at once, leading to utterly absurd knowledge and processing power along with an incredible number of viewpoints.

Weaknesses: Valevs are incredibly overconfident and brazen, determined and high on willpower to take on things far out of their weight class. Valevs’ intelligence and planning, additionally, scale to how precarious the situation is; in operations The Collective disapproves or does not care for, The Collective’s members may choose not to contribute, or in some scenarios, actively screw with the host for shits and giggles. Valevs often have a pit feeling of being truly alone and rely on The Collective to keep them company- when things get out of hand, they often burst into violent mood swings and spiral into self-righteousness and egotism. Worst of all, Valevs are incredibly bad at recognizing the flaws and consequences of their own actions, even when on such tremendous scales such as irreversibly hindering development and growth due to wiping out all stable governments with their ruthless freedom figjting.

Not to mention, while this esoteric ability lingers on his form, he does not age and does not tire. It even grants him quite strong regenerative abilities, allowing him to regrow limbs and possibly even more if given enough time.
When actively used, the technique takes on even more abilities and strengths. It allows him to accelerate his passive regeneration and reaction speeds, and can even amplify his speed by speeding him up in time by quite a considerable amount. Using this, he was able to take the title of Guild’s Fastest Mage. Not only that, but Anamnesis is the core of how Valev is able to summon clones of himself. He can draw from versions of himself in the past, secured by Anamnesis, and bring them into the present to continue fighting for him. He has actually developed quite close friendships to many of these different Valevs.
Alas, there is still more to Anamnesis. When Valev focuses much of his magical energy into Anamnesis, he can develop massively enhanced physical abilities through restoring his body to his very peak, along with duplicating every attack he makes by drawing forward dozens upon dozens of different versions of himself, to either stack upon an attack to do more damage, or to attack in many different ways at once. However, it is difficult for him to use all of his clones while utilizing this ability.
  • Illusionary Casting
One of Valev’s most recent abilities, Valev had learned and researched how photons bounce to the eyes to create the images that we call sight. And if they exist, they can be manipulated. Valev used his temporal magic to secure images in time, or even loop and reverse them to create illusions of things that weren’t there. He uses this in many tricky ways, such as hiding a forest fire while fighting an opponent in the air, so that later he can absorb the fire once it spreads for a massive boost in strength.
  • Unused Capabilities
In theory, Valev has more techniques involving time that he has yet to master. For one, it is possible for him to learn to observe the future like some of his allies had in The World of Myths. As well, some of his allies used their versions of temporal manipulation to reverse an attack out of time itself as a more effective way to power null attacks. While Valev has occasionally dabbled in these abilities, he has yet to fully learn them.

Other Magics

Over the years, Valev has learned quite a few different techniques unique from his original gift.

  • Destruction Magic
This strange energy is something Valev can channel into his body, weapons, or even use at a range. What it allows him to do is project this energy to easily shatter or destroy an object. This has also been shown to be able to destroy magical effects, and to an extent, even intangible ones. Once, Valev was able to shatter a Time Stop so his allies could continue moving. This energy also can be used to boost his physical attacks, allowing for increased physical strength and striking capabilities.
  • Fire Manipulation
This more basic magic, while quite repetitive given his control over the Flames of the Consortium, acts more like actual fire. He can coat his body in flames for increased strength, blast people with it at a range, and even burn away the flow of mana with it. One useful utility is that he can absorb actual flames not made by himself to regenerate and boost his mana.
  • Fire Absorption
While he also resists fire on a base level, Valev bought the ability to absorb any and all fire in the general vicinity to boost his physical capabilities, restore his mana, and regenerate his body to a better state.
  • Speed Amplification
By channeling his mana through his body, he can allow for incredible bursts of speeds, and with these speeds come stronger strikes. While not boosting reaction speeds, Valev’s reactions are more than enough to keep up with his rapid strikes
  • Conjure Weapons
Inside The Infinite Consortium, Valev stores his many weapons and equipment. And, at a whim, he can summon forth these many weapons to assist him in battle. These weapons have many special properties and abilities, which will be listed below.
  • Embodiment of Death
In the World of Myths, Valev, known as Vayla at the time, hatched a plan for unlocking a fraction of the power of The Collective. First, she travelled to the world of the gods and blackmailed a god into lending her all of his power by using their daughter as a hostage. She later admitted this to the daughter, and they called it even, since Vayla had previously saved her and her boyfriend’s life. After gaining the god’s power, she descended into hell, a location where thousands of souls she had accumulated in that world have fallen. The dimension is firm, thus instead of flying away towards The Collective, The Collective was brought to hell.
Upon reaching the unimaginable fourth-dimensional beast, The Embodiment of Death came to challenge Vayla. She fought him, suffering massive losses to Death’s great soul manipulation. However, at the last moment, she revealed her trump card; she used the power of the god to unleash a blast to destroy the entirety of Hell itself. She was unable to truly cause damage to the impossibly strong concept, but by obliterating every last soul in Hell, there was no longer any Death. And if there was no Death, Death could no longer exist.
This was a temporary fix, of course. Vayla quickly took the Soul of Death and absorbed it, becoming an embodiment of death herself. It was not long until Death renewed itself as a concept and another embodiment appeared, although she killed that one as well purely because he was more whiny than the previous guy.
As the Embodiment of Death, Valev possesses incredible control over death itself. He can bring death upon enemies and shield himself from such, bring souls and lives from the dead, and even prevent himself from dying even after suffering normally lethal wounds, albeit only for a short period of time. The potential for this magic is incredible.
  • Death Prevention
Most often used in his World of Myths key, Valev is capable of denying on of death through a spell. This spell allows them to stay alive even if their body is shredded to pieces, and makes them near invulnerable to all effects on the physical body. This includes hax, such as disease and biological manipulation. However, it only lasts for a few seconds, normally, and requires more mana to keep up. Valev passively has it to set off on himself when he reaches a point of death, and uses Anamnesis to regenerate to a living condition.

Fighting Style

Valev acts as an incredibly aggressive foe. His battle style may seem reckless, but often times it is strategically put together; every last moment of it. He rushes into war with blinding speed, blitzing down his opponents with onslaughts of powerful attacks, all while learning and playing around his opponent’s capabilities. Examples of this were when Valev managed to collect two out of four medallions in a group event of over eight people, with around two people assigned to each medallion. Valev quickly blitzed down each boss monster he came across in rapid succession, scoring the medals for himself.

Valev does have a bad case of enjoying the spotlight, though, and often puts himself in danger purely out of recklessness. This often comes due to his distrust of other people to keep up with his strategies and ideas, although if he believes he’s found a partner who he can reliably fight with, he will have one hell of a time. One example of this was in Valev’s Guild Trials. These events were meant to be completed by two people; one contestant, and their partner. However, Valev’s partner never showed up for the events, so Valev went past all of them on his own, including fighting in two 2 versus 1 battles against comparable members and winning both.

Blade of Envy

From Eowyn himself, a title of great weight and power. After slaying Eowyn in battle, Valev became the new holder of the title. This allows him the ability to copy powers from those they see, amplify the body heavily, draw upon the envy of those around them for strength, manipulating fate, and an incredibly powerful transformation called Sin Trigger, greatly amplifying all above abilities at the cost of the psyche.

Beggars Banquet

An ability obtained from Ruby Tuesday after killing a clone of her. After applying the associated lipstick, she may use Ruby's ability to copy other abilities via killing or kissing, alongside Ruby's incredible analytical abilities.

  • Necrokinetic Kiss
Can rot people by kissing them.
  • Hardening/Softening
Can make their own body softer or harder at will.
  • Telepathy
Can send and receive messages via the mind.
  • Vampirism
Can amplify strength and speed, can fly, and can turn into a bat.
  • Rusting
Can quickly corrode and weaken metals.
  • Heat Absorption
Can drain the heat around them to greatly heat themself up while freezing the area around them.
  • Pocket Storage
Can store an unlimited number of items on her person in a pocket realm of sorts.
  • Teleportation Balls
Can create balls of magic that teleport anything within them to other locations.
  • Locking
Can 'lock' and 'unlock' things within a short radius.

Queen

As a result of killing Yvonne Park many, many times, Vayla unlocked her Abnormality as an ability to control. This allows the manipulation of parallel dimensions. While not as absolute and powerful as Yvonne's use of this ability, she used it to gain control of several abilities from her past and other dimensions.

  • Valev of the Fairy
Can fly and control incredible amounts of danmaku via cloning her Kiri.
  • Valev of the Dungeon
Can become innately incredibly stealthy, vanishing from the eye on a dime.
  • Valev of the Gamer
Can cast a variety of spells, along with having increased regeneration to health and mana.
  • Valev of the Past
Can control darkness with great finesse, using it to temporarily blind enemies and blend into the night.
  • Valev of the Academy
Can control magnetic fields via touch.
  • Valev of the World
Can amplify speed every time she hits an enemy by just a small amount, but with no cap on how fast she can get.
  • Valev of the Court
Can become an incredibly good lawyer.

Equipment

  • Kiri
Often called Kyri, these are two blades Valev most often wields in battle. They resemble a mix between a blade and an axe, and their handle is composed of a spinning mechanic that allows him to whirl the blades around. The two blades are very conductive to magic, and can be channeled with Valev’s different abilities rather well. When tossed at an enemy, they will lock onto the target and lightly home in on them. This means they will curve and turn towards the target, but not swerve 90 degrees. They will chase the target even if the target vanishes behind illusions or invisibility magic.
Upon hitting an object or opponent, they will induce an effect of decreased durability on the object, allowing them to be hit far harder than normal. Valev describes this effect as “...about 20% weaker”, and it lasts for a few seconds. If multiple of them hit in rapid succession, they can lead to massive combo attacks where Valev has historically one-shotted far tougher enemies.
After hitting an object, the blades will then fly back towards Valev, homing back in on him. Valev uses these blades in very complex fashions, bursting down opponents with medium-ranged combos once they slip up and make a mistake.
  • The Berserker
A very simple weapon, The Berserker is a massive axe made of a hard-to-destroy material. While heavy and unwieldy, it possesses the ability for the wielder to pump raw magic into it for massive increases in it’s striking force. Valev prefers using this weapon alongside his Kiri in order to maximize his damage output.
  • Icon of The Kraken
The Icon is an emblem that Valev earned from a quest at seas. Instead of acting as a traditional weapon, it acts as a support attachment. To be used, it needs to be placed on an object or weapon. When that object hits an enemy or opponent, ghostly tentacles will emerge from around the target and begin to thrash on them, alongside restricting their movement. Valev uses it more often against more mobile foes and very large ones.
  • Mana Emblem
While Valev’s physical stamina is near-infinite, his mana is not. So, Valev has a canister that, when used, will refill around 30% of his mana storage at once. This can be refilled at any time using Valev’s own mana. This item usually only comes out in desperate situations where he really needs the extra mana.
  • Frostlorn
Stolen from a queen of ice, this scythe possesses incredible magical power. While already very durable and strong on it’s own, whenever it hits an object, it causes rapid and mass freezing around the point of impact. These temperatures are enough to overwhelm even incredibly experienced pyromancers. While not absolute zero, it does get quite close.
  • Scythe of The Unseen
A scythe of darkness, this blade is sharp and has quite good offensive capabilities. However, it’s unique attribute is it’s ability to transform into an invisible, nigh impossible to sense emblem. This can be applied to a person or object by Valev hitting them with the scythe. Once the emblem is placed, Valev can mentally track exactly where they are, alongside hear whatever they are doing remotely. It can be recalled at any time.
  • Identification Daggers
Two small blades great for quick jabs and attacks with the special ability to analyze any object they stab. Be it a person or object, once inserted, Valev gradually learns more and more about this. In combat, he can use this against unknown foes to specifically learn their combat capabilities, goals, and more.
  • Goliath Armor
One of Valev’s few defensive options. This suit of armor that covers his entire body is incredibly durable but also quite heavy, limiting his speed by a fair bit. Although, it’s unique effect is incredible for someone like Valev. Whenever he amplifies his speed while using the armor, instead, he boosts the armor’s durability. This allows for tremendous increases in durability, at the cost of his blazing fast speed. This armor is very situational, and he wears it only when the situation demands it.
  • Ringleader’s Fists
Another situational item, this weapon is composed of two gauntlets that fit nicely on Valev’s fists. When he first punches an enemy, ring 15 feet in radius takes form around the two. Every time Valev punches someone after that, the ring decreases in size by 4 inches, down to a 5 foot radius. This zone is nigh-impossible for anyone to break into or exit, practically acting like a separate dimension loosely connected to the main world.

Every time he hits an opponent, the ring shrinks, leaving them less and less space to escape). Resistance to most body-altering effects with Anamnesis, Resistance to Absorption (Valev has a specific fire spell that combusts to cause massive damage when absorbed).

Intelligence: Supergenius. Valev's Collective has reached a total of over five trillion souls, five trillion memories, five trillion lives. Using a portion of The Collective, even in human form, Valev can calculate at a score of nearly 250 PFLOPS. His skill in combat has grown to a capacity that he had managed to defeat four clones of himself in hand-to-hand combat, all at the same time. This applies to his World of Myths and Post-Reunification key.

Weaknesses: Valev is woefully overconfident and childish at points. If he doesn't see a reason to be serious, he flat-out just won't be serious. At times, this plays into his favor, since it gives the impression that he's far less than he actually is. As well, he has a heavy dislike for sharing the spotlight. Even after gaining access to a weapon that allowed him great healing capabilities, he practically abandoned it purely because he couldn't heal himself.

Notable Attacks/Techniques: 

The Consortium's Blessing

As a Consortium Traveler, Valev unlocked the hearth of his hidden, esoteric abilities. Like all Travelers, he has an innate resistance to Soul Manipulation and Existence Erasure on a fourth-dimensional scale, due to their ability to travel the void. As well, he controls the fabric of The Consortium, allowing him to create portals throughout reality to teleport or move from location to location. This can appear as nearly teleporting, due to the awkward passage of time within The Infinite Consortium. Just like any other traveler, he can also meld The Flames of The Consortium, an enigmatic misnomer for a substance that erases the existence and consumes the soul of all it touches. Raw magic can dispel it, but it is powerful in unstable blasts of magic and for burning down the undefended.

  • Boon of Souls
One of Valev's primary gifts from The Void. He was given a dominion over the simple concept of souls. Be it the souls found in the infinite sea of The Consortium, or those that fly free after death, Valev may collect these and contribute them to his overall power.
  • The Collective
The Collective is a mass of each and every soul Valev had ever absorbed in his lifetime, even those faded and worn over time. Each one clings to life onto a great mass, powering eachother and taking in souls from those that pass it by within the depths of The Infinite Consortium. It's power is great, but it's condition is weak, and it is unable to wake up. If it were to awake, however, the calamity it would cause would be great, even possibly enough to tear apart The Consortium itself.
  • Absorption
Upon taking in a soul into The Collective, Valev gains remnants of the original owner's capabilities and strengths. He finds it hard to take a soul from a still living target, but upon death, most of the resistances fade away and he is free to take his pickings.
  • Psuedo-Immortality
Valev, in his adventures, dies. He dies quite a lot. However, his supply of souls constantly keeps him alive and ready. Every time Valev perishes, his mind and soul is transferred through The Infinite Consortium, expending hundreds of souls in the process. It’s quite a high-cost exercise, but it allows Valev to live as long as he’d like, albeit constantly transferring around the universe while doing so.
  • Boon of Time
A skill Valev taught himself, Valev is adept in merging The Consortium and reality to create zones and periods of frozen time. He has also often used this ability to manipulate time in order to amplify his abilities and use his incredibly potent Anamnesis Technique, one of the hallmarks in Valev’s arsenal.
  • Anamnesis Technique
One of Valev’s strongest techniques, Anamnesis is a passive enchantment Valev has constantly around him at all times. It is the technique of preserving his own time. Passively, it provides him no need to eat, sleep, or breathe, by constantly refreshing his body to a previous point in time. It also allows him enhanced reaction speeds, his neurons traveling even faster than normal. Not only that, but it protects him from Precognition, Fate Manipulation, and other forms of future and past modifying abilities by constantly securing his own time. This prevents him from being affected by changes to the past, and allows him to constantly be free of determined paths in the future. Not to mention, while this esoteric ability lingers on his form, he does not age and does not tire. It even grants him quite strong regenerative abilities, allowing him to regrow limbs and possibly even more if given enough time.
When actively used, the technique takes on even more abilities and strengths. It allows him to accelerate his passive regeneration and reaction speeds, and can even amplify his speed by speeding him up in time by quite a considerable amount. Using this, he was able to take the title of Guild’s Fastest Mage. Not only that, but Anamnesis is the core of how Valev is able to summon clones of himself. He can draw from versions of himself in the past, secured by Anamnesis, and bring them into the present to continue fighting for him. He has actually developed quite close friendships to many of these different Valevs.
Alas, there is still more to Anamnesis. When Valev focuses much of his magical energy into Anamnesis, he can develop massively enhanced physical abilities through restoring his body to his very peak, along with duplicating every attack he makes by drawing forward dozens upon dozens of different versions of himself, to either stack upon an attack to do more damage, or to attack in many different ways at once. However, it is difficult for him to use all of his clones while utilizing this ability.
  • Illusionary Casting
One of Valev’s most recent abilities, Valev had learned and researched how photons bounce to the eyes to create the images that we call sight. And if they exist, they can be manipulated. Valev used his temporal magic to secure images in time, or even loop and reverse them to create illusions of things that weren’t there. He uses this in many tricky ways, such as hiding a forest fire while fighting an opponent in the air, so that later he can absorb the fire once it spreads for a massive boost in strength.
  • Unused Capabilities
In theory, Valev has more techniques involving time that he has yet to master. For one, it is possible for him to learn to observe the future like some of his allies had in The World of Myths. As well, some of his allies used their versions of temporal manipulation to reverse an attack out of time itself as a more effective way to power null attacks. While Valev has occasionally dabbled in these abilities, he has yet to fully learn them.

Other Magics

Over the years, Valev has learned quite a few different techniques unique from his original gift.

  • Destruction Magic
This strange energy is something Valev can channel into his body, weapons, or even use at a range. What it allows him to do is project this energy to easily shatter or destroy an object. This has also been shown to be able to destroy magical effects, and to an extent, even intangible ones. Once, Valev was able to shatter a Time Stop so his allies could continue moving. This energy also can be used to boost his physical attacks, allowing for increased physical strength and striking capabilities.
  • Fire Manipulation
This more basic magic, while quite repetitive given his control over the Flames of the Consortium, acts more like actual fire. He can coat his body in flames for increased strength, blast people with it at a range, and even burn away the flow of mana with it. One useful utility is that he can absorb actual flames not made by himself to regenerate and boost his mana.
  • Fire Absorption
While he also resists fire on a base level, Valev bought the ability to absorb any and all fire in the general vicinity to boost his physical capabilities, restore his mana, and regenerate his body to a better state.
  • Speed Amplification
By channeling his mana through his body, he can allow for incredible bursts of speeds, and with these speeds come stronger strikes. While not boosting reaction speeds, Valev’s reactions are more than enough to keep up with his rapid strikes
  • Conjure Weapons
Inside The Infinite Consortium, Valev stores his many weapons and equipment. And, at a whim, he can summon forth these many weapons to assist him in battle. These weapons have many special properties and abilities, which will be listed below.
  • Embodiment of Death
In the World of Myths, Valev, known as Vayla at the time, hatched a plan for unlocking a fraction of the power of The Collective. First, she travelled to the world of the gods and blackmailed a god into lending her all of his power by using their daughter as a hostage. She later admitted this to the daughter, and they called it even, since Vayla had previously saved her and her boyfriend’s life. After gaining the god’s power, she descended into hell, a location where thousands of souls she had accumulated in that world have fallen. The dimension is firm, thus instead of flying away towards The Collective, The Collective was brought to hell.
Upon reaching the unimaginable fourth-dimensional beast, The Embodiment of Death came to challenge Vayla. She fought him, suffering massive losses to Death’s great soul manipulation. However, at the last moment, she revealed her trump card; she used the power of the god to unleash a blast to destroy the entirety of Hell itself.

As the Embodiment of Death, Valev possesses incredible control over death itself. He can bring death upon enemies and shield himself from such, bring souls and lives from the dead, and even prevent himself from dying even after suffering normally lethal wounds, albeit only for a short period of time. The potential for this magic is incredible.

Valev passively has it to set off on himself when he reaches a point of death, and uses Anamnesis to regenerate to a living condition.

Fighting Style

Valev acts as an incredibly aggressive foe. His battle style may seem reckless, but often times it is strategically put together; every last moment of it. He rushes into war with blinding speed, blitzing down his opponents with onslaughts of powerful attacks, all while learning and playing around his opponent’s capabilities. Examples of this were when Valev managed to collect two out of four medallions in a group event of over eight people, with around two people assigned to each medallion. Valev quickly blitzed down each boss monster he came across in rapid succession, scoring the medals for himself.

Valev does have a bad case of enjoying the spotlight, though, and often puts himself in danger purely out of recklessness. This often comes due to his distrust of other people to keep up with his strategies and ideas, although if he believes he’s found a partner who he can reliably fight with, he will have one hell of a time. One example of this was in Valev’s Guild Trials. These events were meant to be completed by two people; one contestant, and their partner.

This can be refilled at any time using Valev’s own mana. This item usually only comes out in desperate situations where he really needs the extra mana.
  • Frostlorn
Stolen from a queen of ice, this scythe possesses incredible magical power. While already very durable and strong on it’s own, whenever it hits an object, it causes rapid and mass freezing around the point of impact. These temperatures are enough to overwhelm even incredibly experienced pyromancers. While not absolute zero, it does get quite close.
  • Scythe of The Unseen
A scythe of darkness, this blade is sharp and has quite good offensive capabilities. However, it’s unique attribute is it’s ability to transform into an invisible, nigh impossible to sense emblem. This can be applied to a person or object by Valev hitting them with the scythe. Once the emblem is placed, Valev can mentally track exactly where they are, alongside hear whatever they are doing remotely. It can be recalled at any time.
  • Identification Daggers
Two small blades great for quick jabs and attacks with the special ability to analyze any object they stab. Be it a person or object, once inserted, Valev gradually learns more and more about this. In combat, he can use this against unknown foes to specifically learn their combat capabilities, goals, and more.
  • Goliath Armor
One of Valev’s few defensive options. This suit of armor that covers his entire body is incredibly durable but also quite heavy, limiting his speed by a fair bit. Although, it’s unique effect is incredible for someone like Valev. Whenever he amplifies his speed while using the armor, instead, he boosts the armor’s durability. This allows for tremendous increases in durability, at the cost of his blazing fast speed. This armor is very situational, and he wears it only when the situation demands it.
  • Ringleader’s Fists
Another situational item, this weapon is composed of two gauntlets that fit nicely on Valev’s fists. When he first punches an enemy, ring 15 feet in radius takes form around the two. Every time Valev punches someone after that, the ring decreases in size by 4 inches, down to a 5 foot radius. This zone is nigh-impossible for anyone to break into or exit, practically acting like a separate dimension loosely connected to the main world.

Powers and Abilities: All previous abilities greatly amplified, Abstract Existence (Type 2; The Collective embodies Death. As long as death exists, so does Valev), Conceptual Manipulation (The Collective has nullified the concept of time on many occasions), Reality Warping (Having transcended The Infinite Consortium, The Collective controls the physics and laws of the universe on a four-dimensional scale, and can manipulate such to his will), Soul Manipulation (The soul power of The Collective can challenge that of a foe. If they are unable to resist on a similar level as The Collective's 5 trillion souls, they will be instantaneously absorbed), Fire Manipulation and Explosion Manipulation (The Collective's control over the Consortium is absolute and unmatched), Absorption, Statistics Amplification, and Power Absorption (Once a soul has been claimed, the soul's owner is instantly taken into The Collective, both their powers and strength brought into Valev), Resistance Negation, Possession, and Mind Manipulation (Upon killing an opponent even once, The Collective instantly absorbs the soul and it’s powers without regard to resistance, attacking the undefended hide of the the soul. Once the soul is absorbed, The Collective takes over the mind and body of the soul's holder, also able to bypass many resistances in the process), Power Nullification (Where The Collective once needed to exert equal energy to destroy an attack, now it has learned to attack a magical ability at it's very core. By shattering the very connection an unnatural, magical, or esoteric ability has with the world, he can dismiss nearly any attack without resistance to it. However, this does not work against passive abilities), Non-Physical Interaction (Vayla's attacks intersect on a four-dimensional scale, allowing her to contact ghosts, intangible, and occasionally abstract entities), Immortality (Types 5, 8, and 9; As the Embodiment of Death, typical concepts of life and death have no meaning to him. As long as the concepts of Death and Valev exist, Valev can not die. Valev's true form is separate from his physical form), Acausality (Types 1 and 2), Non-Corporeal, Resistance to Soul Manipulation (The Collective's resistance of the soul is equal to the strength of the soul. On top of the five trillion souls that make up The Collective, he can exert his force on a five-dimensional level), Mind Manipulation (His mind and soul are one, so the resistance of the mind is equal to that of the soul), Probability Manipulation (The Collective's luck is secured by the exerted power of all that is Valev. He could resist techniques that secured a 100% chance of winning while in a weakened form), Time Manipulation, (The concept of time means little to The Collective. Even reading into The Collective's past is a herculean effort. Capable of freezing even Infinite speed 4-D characters similar to himself), Power Nullification (The Collective's magic is provided by all of it's souls, and the destruction of either the magic or the source requires one to overwhelm the will of the souls), Reality Warping (The Collective could survive manipulation on near to the same level as his own), Regeneration (Low-Godly; as long as The Collective has a single soul, it can come regenerate back from complete destruction. The Collective's existence is separate from the soul, and he is capable of coming back from total existence erasure, among other things).

Attack Potency: At least Universe Level+, likely much higher with Expunge (Could temporarily expunge all of The Consortium and bring it back, although the fullest extent of his power is unknown. If he were to absorb the souls of the entire Consortium, the number of souls within The Collective would be uncountably higher, thus making it much more powerful)

Speed: Immeasurable (Could instantly travel anywhere within The Infinite Consortium. Can move outside of The Infinite Consortium, in a realm that lacks all concepts of time. Due to The Infinite Consortium’s odd flow of time and The Collective’s control over it, it can casually move itself anytime, anywhere, anyhow merely with movements)

Lifting Strength: Immeasurable

Striking Strength: Universal+.

Durability: At least Universe Level+, likely much higher with Expunge

Stamina: Virtually infinite (Has over five trillion souls within The Collective, which all supply magic for the Anamnesis Technique)

Range: Universal+

Standard Equipment: Anything Valev has accumulated over the years, although none are very relevant

Intelligence: Supergenius. Valev's Collective has reached a total of over five trillion souls, five trillion memories, five trillion lives. Using a portion of The Collective, even in human form, Valev can calculate at a score of nearly 250 PFLOPS. Using the full power of The Collective, trillions of minds all working both independently and in sync fight at once, allowing him to perform trillions of different attacks at once.

Weaknesses: The Collective is normally chained and restrained within The Infinite Consortium.

Notable Attacks/Techniques: 

The Consortium's Blessing

As a Consortium Traveler, Valev unlocked the hearth of his hidden, esoteric abilities. Like all Travelers, he has an innate resistance to Soul Manipulation and Existence Erasure on a fourth-dimensional scale, due to their ability to travel the void. As well, he controls the fabric of The Consortium, allowing him to create portals throughout reality to teleport or move from location to location. This can appear as nearly teleporting, due to the awkward passage of time within The Infinite Consortium. Just like any other traveler, he can also meld The Flames of The Consortium, an enigmatic misnomer for a substance that erases the existence and consumes the soul of all it touches. Raw magic can dispel it, but it is powerful in unstable blasts of magic and for burning down the undefended.

  • Boon of Souls
One of Valev's primary gifts from The Void. He was given a dominion over the simple concept of souls. Be it the souls found in the infinite sea of The Consortium, or those that fly free after death, Valev may collect these and contribute them to his overall power.
  • The Collective
The Collective is a mass of each and every soul Valev had ever absorbed in his lifetime, even those faded and worn over time. Each one clings to life onto a great mass, powering eachother and taking in souls from those that pass it by within the depths of The Infinite Consortium. It's power is great, but it's condition is weak, and it is unable to wake up. If it were to awake, however, the calamity it would cause would be great, even possibly enough to tear apart The Consortium itself.
  • The Collective's Will
An ability obtained Post-Reunification, Valev can channel a portion of The Collective's Power to tear away the souls of an entire planet and absorb them all into himself, amplifying his abilities by a tremendous amount.
  • Absorption
Upon taking in a soul into The Collective, Valev gains remnants of the original owner's capabilities and strengths. He finds it hard to take a soul from a still living target, but upon death, most of the resistances fade away and he is free to take his pickings.
  • Psuedo-Immortality
Valev, in his adventures, dies. He dies quite a lot. However, his supply of souls constantly keeps him alive and ready. Every time Valev perishes, his mind and soul is transferred through The Infinite Consortium, expending hundreds of souls in the process. It’s quite a high-cost exercise, but it allows Valev to live as long as he’d like, albeit constantly transferring around the universe while doing so.
  • Boon of Time
A skill Valev taught himself, Valev is adept in merging The Consortium and reality to create zones and periods of frozen time. He has also often used this ability to manipulate time in order to amplify his abilities and use his incredibly potent Anamnesis Technique, one of the hallmarks in Valev’s arsenal.
  • Anamnesis Technique
One of Valev’s strongest techniques, Anamnesis is a passive enchantment Valev has constantly around him at all times. It is the technique of preserving his own time. Passively, it provides him no need to eat, sleep, or breathe, by constantly refreshing his body to a previous point in time. It also allows him enhanced reaction speeds, his neurons traveling even faster than normal. Not only that, but it protects him from Precognition, Fate Manipulation, and other forms of future and past modifying abilities by constantly securing his own time. This prevents him from being affected by changes to the past, and allows him to constantly be free of determined paths in the future. Not to mention, while this esoteric ability lingers on his form, he does not age and does not tire. It even grants him quite strong regenerative abilities, allowing him to regrow limbs and possibly even more if given enough time.
When actively used, the technique takes on even more abilities and strengths. It allows him to accelerate his passive regeneration and reaction speeds, and can even amplify his speed by speeding him up in time by quite a considerable amount. Using this, he was able to take the title of Guild’s Fastest Mage. Not only that, but Anamnesis is the core of how Valev is able to summon clones of himself. He can draw from versions of himself in the past, secured by Anamnesis, and bring them into the present to continue fighting for him. He has actually developed quite close friendships to many of these different Valevs.
Alas, there is still more to Anamnesis. When Valev focuses much of his magical energy into Anamnesis, he can develop massively enhanced physical abilities through restoring his body to his very peak, along with duplicating every attack he makes by drawing forward dozens upon dozens of different versions of himself, to either stack upon an attack to do more damage, or to attack in many different ways at once. However, it is difficult for him to use all of his clones while utilizing this ability.
  • Illusionary Casting
One of Valev’s most recent abilities, Valev had learned and researched how photons bounce to the eyes to create the images that we call sight. And if they exist, they can be manipulated. Valev used his temporal magic to secure images in time, or even loop and reverse them to create illusions of things that weren’t there. He uses this in many tricky ways, such as hiding a forest fire while fighting an opponent in the air, so that later he can absorb the fire once it spreads for a massive boost in strength.
  • Unused Capabilities
In theory, Valev has more techniques involving time that he has yet to master. For one, it is possible for him to learn to observe the future like some of his allies had in The World of Myths. As well, some of his allies used their versions of temporal manipulation to reverse an attack out of time itself as a more effective way to power null attacks. While Valev has occasionally dabbled in these abilities, he has yet to fully learn them.

Other Magics

Over the years, Valev has learned quite a few different techniques unique from his original gift.

  • Destruction Magic
This strange energy is something Valev can channel into his body, weapons, or even use at a range. What it allows him to do is project this energy to easily shatter or destroy an object. This has also been shown to be able to destroy magical effects, and to an extent, even intangible ones. Once, Valev was able to shatter a Time Stop so his allies could continue moving. This energy also can be used to boost his physical attacks, allowing for increased physical strength and striking capabilities.
  • Fire Manipulation
This more basic magic, while quite repetitive given his control over the Flames of the Consortium, acts more like actual fire. He can coat his body in flames for increased strength, blast people with it at a range, and even burn away the flow of mana with it. One useful utility is that he can absorb actual flames not made by himself to regenerate and boost his mana.
  • Fire Absorption
While he also resists fire on a base level, Valev bought the ability to absorb any and all fire in the general vicinity to boost his physical capabilities, restore his mana, and regenerate his body to a better state.
  • Speed Amplification
By channeling his mana through his body, he can allow for incredible bursts of speeds, and with these speeds come stronger strikes. While not boosting reaction speeds, Valev’s reactions are more than enough to keep up with his rapid strikes
  • Conjure Weapons
Inside The Infinite Consortium, Valev stores his many weapons and equipment. And, at a whim, he can summon forth these many weapons to assist him in battle. These weapons have many special properties and abilities, which will be listed below.
  • Embodiment of Death
In the World of Myths, Valev, known as Vayla at the time, hatched a plan for unlocking a fraction of the power of The Collective. First, she travelled to the world of the gods and blackmailed a god into lending her all of his power by using their daughter as a hostage. She later admitted this to the daughter, and they called it even, since Vayla had previously saved her and her boyfriend’s life. After gaining the god’s power, she descended into hell, a location where thousands of souls she had accumulated in that world have fallen. The dimension is firm, thus instead of flying away towards The Collective, The Collective was brought to hell.
Upon reaching the unimaginable fourth-dimensional beast, The Embodiment of Death came to challenge Vayla. She fought him, suffering massive losses to Death’s great soul manipulation. However, at the last moment, she revealed her trump card; she used the power of the god to unleash a blast to destroy the entirety of Hell itself. She was unable to truly cause damage to the impossibly strong concept, but by obliterating every last soul in Hell, there was no longer any Death. And if there was no Death, Death could no longer exist.
This was a temporary fix, of course. Vayla quickly took the Soul of Death and absorbed it, becoming an embodiment of death herself. It was not long until Death renewed itself as a concept and another embodiment appeared, although she killed that one as well purely because he was more whiny than the previous guy.
As the Embodiment of Death, Valev possesses incredible control over death itself. He can bring death upon enemies and shield himself from such, bring souls and lives from the dead, and even prevent himself from dying even after suffering normally lethal wounds, albeit only for a short period of time. The potential for this magic is incredible.
  • Death Prevention
Most often used in his World of Myths key, Valev is capable of denying on of death through a spell. This spell allows them to stay alive even if their body is shredded to pieces, and makes them near invulnerable to all effects on the physical body. This includes hax, such as disease and biological manipulation. However, it only lasts for a few seconds, normally, and requires more mana to keep up. Valev passively has it to set off on himself when he reaches a point of death, and uses Anamnesis to regenerate to a living condition.

Fighting Style

Valev acts as an incredibly aggressive foe. His battle style may seem reckless, but often times it is strategically put together; every last moment of it. He rushes into war with blinding speed, blitzing down his opponents with onslaughts of powerful attacks, all while learning and playing around his opponent’s capabilities. Examples of this were when Valev managed to collect two out of four medallions in a group event of over eight people, with around two people assigned to each medallion. Valev quickly blitzed down each boss monster he came across in rapid succession, scoring the medals for himself.

Valev does have a bad case of enjoying the spotlight, though, and often puts himself in danger purely out of recklessness. This often comes due to his distrust of other people to keep up with his strategies and ideas, although if he believes he’s found a partner who he can reliably fight with, he will have one hell of a time. One example of this was in Valev’s Guild Trials. These events were meant to be completed by two people; one contestant, and their partner. However, Valev’s partner never showed up for the events, so Valev went past all of them on his own, including fighting in two 2 versus 1 battles against comparable members and winning both.

Equipment

  • Kiri
Often called Kyri, these are two blades Valev most often wields in battle. They resemble a mix between a blade and an axe, and their handle is composed of a spinning mechanic that allows him to whirl the blades around. The two blades are very conductive to magic, and can be channeled with Valev’s different abilities rather well. When tossed at an enemy, they will lock onto the target and lightly home in on them. This means they will curve and turn towards the target, but not swerve 90 degrees. They will chase the target even if the target vanishes behind illusions or invisibility magic.
Upon hitting an object or opponent, they will induce an effect of decreased durability on the object, allowing them to be hit far harder than normal. Valev describes this effect as “...about 20% weaker”, and it lasts for a few seconds. If multiple of them hit in rapid succession, they can lead to massive combo attacks where Valev has historically one-shotted far tougher enemies.
After hitting an object, the blades will then fly back towards Valev, homing back in on him. Valev uses these blades in very complex fashions, bursting down opponents with medium-ranged combos once they slip up and make a mistake.
  • The Berserker
A very simple weapon, The Berserker is a massive axe made of a hard-to-destroy material. While heavy and unwieldy, it possesses the ability for the wielder to pump raw magic into it for massive increases in it’s striking force. Valev prefers using this weapon alongside his Kiri in order to maximize his damage output.
  • Icon of The Kraken
The Icon is an emblem that Valev earned from a quest at seas. Instead of acting as a traditional weapon, it acts as a support attachment. To be used, it needs to be placed on an object or weapon. When that object hits an enemy or opponent, ghostly tentacles will emerge from around the target and begin to thrash on them, alongside restricting their movement. Valev uses it more often against more mobile foes and very large ones.
  • Mana Emblem
While Valev’s physical stamina is near-infinite, his mana is not. So, Valev has a canister that, when used, will refill around 30% of his mana storage at once. This can be refilled at any time using Valev’s own mana. This item usually only comes out in desperate situations where he really needs the extra mana.
  • Frostlorn
Stolen from a queen of ice, this scythe possesses incredible magical power. While already very durable and strong on it’s own, whenever it hits an object, it causes rapid and mass freezing around the point of impact. These temperatures are enough to overwhelm even incredibly experienced pyromancers. While not absolute zero, it does get quite close.
  • Scythe of The Unseen
A scythe of darkness, this blade is sharp and has quite good offensive capabilities. However, it’s unique attribute is it’s ability to transform into an invisible, nigh impossible to sense emblem. This can be applied to a person or object by Valev hitting them with the scythe. Once the emblem is placed, Valev can mentally track exactly where they are, alongside hear whatever they are doing remotely. It can be recalled at any time.
  • Identification Daggers
Two small blades great for quick jabs and attacks with the special ability to analyze any object they stab. Be it a person or object, once inserted, Valev gradually learns more and more about this. In combat, he can use this against unknown foes to specifically learn their combat capabilities, goals, and more.
  • Goliath Armor
One of Valev’s few defensive options. This suit of armor that covers his entire body is incredibly durable but also quite heavy, limiting his speed by a fair bit. Although, it’s unique effect is incredible for someone like Valev. Whenever he amplifies his speed while using the armor, instead, he boosts the armor’s durability. This allows for tremendous increases in durability, at the cost of his blazing fast speed. This armor is very situational, and he wears it only when the situation demands it.
  • Ringleader’s Fists
Another situational item, this weapon is composed of two gauntlets that fit nicely on Valev’s fists. When he first punches an enemy, ring 15 feet in radius takes form around the two. Every time Valev punches someone after that, the ring decreases in size by 4 inches, down to a 5 foot radius. This zone is nigh-impossible for anyone to break into or exit, practically acting like a separate dimension loosely connected to the main world.

The Collective

The Collective’s strength massively surpasses anything the conscious Valev has ever encountered. Made up of every last soul he has ever had across all of his existence, it resists in the abandoned, lost crevices of The Infinite Consortium, shackled and tired. It constantly flows with power, and if awakened, could tear apart the entirety of The Consortium and reveal The Nothingness. The Collective’s strength comes from being able to exert it’s influence. While it can not physically harm a five-dimensional space, it can exert influence onto it for purposes such as for The Collective’s hax and resistances. Each and every soul contributes influence towards The Collective. In essence, The Collective is a four-dimensional being that can use hax on a High 2-A, five-dimensional scale. Each soul The Collective has under it’s control empowers it’s abilities, so it is capable of exerting it’s influence on over five trillion five-dimensional entities at once, increasing with the number of souls in The Collective. Each and every one of The Collective’s powers and abilities are powered by it’s souls, and by association, it’s influence. To truly destroy The Collective, every last soul must be destroyed. Erasing it from existence does not matter unless it overcomes every last soul, as well. If there is even one soul left, The Collective will come back, crawling from the depths of The Infinite Consortium to continue the fight. As all it’s resistances are on a five-dimensional scale, putting it down for good is exceptionally difficult, and for a Consortium Traveler, nigh-impossible.

  • Expunge
The Collective’s strongest and only technique. The Collective has no reason not to use every last one of it’s abilities at any given time. At the very beginning of any fight, The Collective will instantly Expunge the universe they are in. This rips away the entire four-dimensional space and all within it, absorbing the souls of every last entity inside into The Collective.
At the same time, The Collective erases the existence of all that exists within, even extending to five-dimensional beings with merely a fraction of themselves stretching into the four-dimensional realm. Reality is warped, concepts are destroyed, and resistances are torn apart. Every last ability Valev has ever obtained comes together to completely wipe away the opponent from every possible angle, leaving only The Nothingness behind.
And after victory, The Collective bestows upon the universe The Infinite Consortium, nothing having changed at all. Except for one thing; it’s opponent had never, does not, and will never exist.

Key: Home Planet | Federation Era | Cataclysm | World of Myths | The Collective

Trivia

  • Valev was originally named V, but I disliked the name.
  • Valev’s Kiri were inspired by Draven’s axes, the Icon of The Kraken was taken from Illaoi, and Valev will often make references to Ekko when recalling back in time. In essence, a lot of his abilities are inspired by League of Legends. Blame the hosts of the RPs I was in.

    • It's soul-manip based, but he'd need to weaken valev first. Until then, i want to close this.
    • Sure. To note, soul-based Sealing is basically never working, thus the fight should be fair enough.
