Power. Some are born with it, some earn it. Others are left to rot in the dust of time. Tomino Nahn was born to a pair of well off property owners, earning her much in the ways of privilege money gets you on Earth. Central City. Good education, good neighborhood. Hell, not having to worry about food at all was good. Outside of that, she had a pretty average life. Up through into college, where she took up the sciences. Aiming up and beyond a master's and towards a Ph.D. The field? Biomechanics. A niche yet very important role in the modern age.
Somewhere along the years in her higher education, the rapid onset rise of powerful individuals popped up. This came and went in cycles through the ages, but it would be the first time the young doctor got to see it outside history texts. She also got to witness the sheer abuses these individuals can engage in. Mundane weaponry is out of the question, and even larger ki-based weapons required some proficiency, locked behind training and money, especially for the ones capable of dealing with the strong.
Ki. Magic. The Supernatural. It became apparent to Tomino that the Universe itself was made unfair. A grave disparity in force is always present in the fabrics of creation. There were those who would never have the ability to defend themselves, to seek their own destiny and liberty. Most who seek to have even a chance will themselves become slaves to the cosmos by training, studying, and subsequently throwing away their lives. Those privileged with wealth or strength by the stars are often self-appointed judges, juries, and executioners. Rarely challenged in their ideals. Both have a proclivity to tyranny, be it purposeful or out of necessity.
"Enough" was all the radicalized student needed to say to put her mind to it. To free the universe, she would have to break the game. Create a cheap combat platform that was no harder to utilize than a standard gun. With power easily able to match that of the tyrants. An average citizen, with the capability of threatening a king. A great force multiplier that acted as an equalizer, much like firearms before her time. And before even that, crossbows. And then blades weapons in general. Against the wishes of her professors, she collected funds enough to work on an Endless Energy Core as the subject for her thesis papers.
None of her reverse engineerings seemed fruitful at first. The infinite energy drive was already what it said on the tin. But it was nowhere near easily reproducible for the average person. Androids running off the stuff were not cheap to make. That's when she got the idea. Rather than use the components in their entirety to fuel a weapon, why not let them siphon life energies from the environment surrounding them? All walks of life, including planets, held this energy within them. The only parts she'd have to make to get this to work are partial to both absorption and endless energy models, and it wasn't the expensive drive part either.
This format she'd later call Hi-Volt, not due to its electrical requirement but because she then found a way to link up this perpetual environmental energy to one's nervous system. Making a complete circuit and giving anyone leveled combat capabilities to those they surrounded themselves with. Perfect for the purpose of her grand plan.
Prototyped and far past her college years, the professor works alone in an upper Northern lab, finishing a soon-to-be-tested prototype of these Hi-Volt Palm Pads that mimic the way absorption android function. It was just time to do some… live testing.
TECHNIQUES 6/6 + 1: You start with Three Standard Technique Slots and One Sparking Slot that you can use any way you like. Some species start out with additional slots, or access to certain slot-based abilities for free. You also start with two additional Utility Technique Slots.
Light Offensive || Harsh Swing
A simple and trained strike with either leg or fist, one empowered by desperation to protect oneself.
KP Cost: 1 KP
Variants: Ki Cost Reduction, +10% Power
Light Offensive || Orin Combo
A rapid chain of high kicks aimed at the upper torso and head of a target. The goal behind this is to carry them into the air a few meters before leaping over them and hammer-fisting them back to the ground.
KP Cost: 2 KP
Variants: +10% Power x 3
Heavy Defensive || Full-break Defense
When the going gets rough. Given no other option, Tomoni will devote all her energy to self-preservation. Heightening her natural senses and acting purely on the defensive. Throwing arms, bracing against incoming attacks, the whole nine yards.
KP Cost: 6 KP
Variants: Shield, +10% Power x 3
Utility Technique || Only Human
While being reasonably fit and trained in basic self-defense, Tomino lacks the sheer durability of most fighters. When she's in the same thread as her Guardian she takes half the mechanical damage that they do. This refers to the percent damage taken, not raw PL.
Utility Technique || Energetic Bio-Engineering
Given her background and recent work with the Hi-Volt Pads, Tomino has unlocked an extremely efficient energy format that she can apply to mundane weaponry. This gives her some ability to create Hi-Volt Pads for other people (In character of course. Up to players how it works mechanically) or even modify current weaponry to not only work with ki but the absorption module she streamlined.
