When you have dealt 60%/80%/150% Cumulative damage to an enemy, upon the enemy being KO'd/wounded/killed in the same split/thread, you regain 1(60%)/2(80%)/3(150%) KP & MP.
You may use multiple Offensive techniques in a single post, to a maximum of three. This is usable twice per thread, and will only work with Standard Techniques. You can also post freely in the Otherworld boards even if you are not dead. In addition, once per month, you may travel instantaneously from one planet to another with up to 5 others.
While in your strongest available form, you may activate 10% MP Power Boosts on all of your Attack Techniques for free. This halts your momentum regeneration for that turn. However, you may not use any Power or Ki Boosts on defensive techniques with your MP in your strongest available form.
Your ki is invisible to energy sensing and scouters, even in the midst of combat - this can be toggled on and off. In addition, escape techniques have a boost of +20% to their total effectiveness and your first escape technique per thread costs no KP.
Twice per thread, when using a Non-Heavy Standard technique, you may gain an additional 1 MP.

Not only is this being half the possessive soul of Griselda, but it is also a fabled soul blade of legend. This is what keeps the two truly linked. His vessel. The katana known by his name to most mortal men. Usumidori. A black blade of admirable length. Etched into it scriptures of his great princely aura. This is much too hard to see without close inspection. A similarly black scabbard made of some nearly impervious woodwork stows the blade. Loose bandages and similarly etched scriptures line it, this time in bolder white paint. While not in use, this blade is kept in a temporal space, summoned by use of his Magic Materialization.
Griselda Tops. Born to a rich family of lords on the outer reaches of East City, she had a pampered upbringing. Youngest of six children, the young Griselda was also a favorite of the lord and lady of the house. As parents and general philanthropists they were well regarded among their town and held to a standard proper of lords at the time. For the longest while the children were all tutored privately. So, a shut in life.
Mostly a rich girl's life. She got along with the two other young children near her age, but the other half of her family was a bit openly against her being the star child. Such feelings pass by as more and more of them leave and head off into the world. Petty ideas like this were quite uncommon to the well behaved children of the Tops. Including Griselda herself, who grew up as a very proper and educated young girl. Where was she headed in life? Who knows! Most didn't decide until they were about to head off to greener pastures. Lawyers, bankers, what have you.
Little Griselda wouldn't have much choice in her path though.
Their little paradise of a family was but a mere façade. Bought out in totality by a deal with the metaphorical devil. A demon had granted this mortal man a family and riches in turn for his and other's souls. Never was there a time frame, but it came to them on a very dark night. New moon, it would be. A portal was lead out from the dimly lit chimney her dad sat out and spill out demons from the demon realm. That's when the chaos happened. Griselda didn't remember much from the start of it. Lots of flame and screaming from house workers. She just ran. Going to the safest place she could think of at the moment.
The Vault. One of the few places she was not normally allowed into cause it was sort of her father's secret. So much for that. Among other valuable pieces, gold, and more, there laid but one thing that called to the young Griselda. Old, lost to time, and with a few cobwebs gathered across its scabbard. Usumidori. The young girl felt this presence in her head beckon her. With demons at the vault door there wasn't much time to think about it. Only thing on her mind was taking this deal and fighting. Half her Life. Half her Soul. For as deceitful and conniving the Demon Prince hidden in the blade was, he was the savior in a time of need. His indifference to other demons and fun for a fight made the decision to 'help' the girl all the more fun. He would not discriminate against the now possessed workers of her estate. All fell.
Once the girl came to and realized what she had done, she... she had to go away. Flee. Run with her tail between her hands, and a blood soaked dress. For when she made this deal she now had the soul of an old demon prince within her. Occupying half her being. It was his destiny now to fulfil with her body. And his first order of business was to rid the world of his brethren. Similar prince and princess blades lost. Over the years he gathered and destroyed such beings, alongside their wielders.
Freed of the threat of his brethren he'd take to causing mischief. Griselda and he, now changed from her struggle and fighting with her other self, travel anywhere they please. While Usumidori is fine with this life, Griselda still wants to do something... completely different. Just, not sure what. Anything but meandering as a demon's puppet.
