Alara is the "daughter" and heir of Ragnarok, a demon currently bound in the likeness of a sword. Her power is unrivaled and her endurance is beyond monstrous, having survived the the fury of gods despite her partially mundane heritage. She does not originate from the same reality as the others do, making her essentially immune to most things in the TZ universe.
Not much is known about Alara's past, save that long before she acquired her powers, she was a regular human of royal status in another universe. It is not entirely clear what happened, but at some point Alara was kidnapped by a demon beast and held captive until the demon was defeated a year later by an unruly band of heroes, one of which being her fiancee. Shortly afterwards, the demon revived itself and, in its last ditch effort, transformed into a monstrous draconic entity and engaged the heroes once again, this time severely injuring all but one of them. At this point, Alara was unable to do much beyond observing the battle between the demonic entity and the combined form of three of the still standing heroes, a mechanical dragon with geometrically symmetrical wings and plated scales of gold. The battle waged, initially in the skies, came to its climax in space, where the demonic being was vanquished, but the golden dragon that had slain it was corrupted by the last vestiges of its power and ran rampant for years to come, eventually being defeated, but not before branding Alara and fifteen others with strange symbols.
During the time that the world was recovering from this catastrophe, Alara began to investigate the Symbol above her heart. It didn't take long for her to find that the symbol was in fact a remnant of the being that had turned on the world, more specifically a representation of its heart and the core of its power. Appalled, Alara did her best to try and remove the symbol from her body, only to find that it was permanently bonded to her. It didn't take long for the world to find out about these symbols and hunt down those with them, out of fear of them becoming monsters akin to the beast they dubbed "Ragnarok". It didn't take long for people to attempt to execute the marked, eventually reaching Alara, but their blades failed to end the young woman's life. Dissatisfied they attempted to hang, burn, crucify, behead and call down the power of the gods upon the young woman, but to no avail, she would survive all attempts, even if she did not wish to. This would continue for years, until she was chained up and cast to the bottom of a well and buried under dirt, stone and metal scraps to repeatedly suffocate until the people forgot about her.
Alara's consciousness faded at that point, only returning when a voice spoke to her and asked if she wanted liberation. Initially interested, when she saw that her liberation would come at the cost of killing hundreds of thousands, she refused, only to be mocked by the voice before it faded. The voice would return every so often, offering liberation, but Alara would refuse each time, knowing that, while she could no longer be considered human by any means, accepting the supposed liberation would make her into a monster. Then one day the voice stopped reaching out to her and not long after did the well that imprisoned her get consumed by the hellfire wrought by another of those who bore a mark similar to her own. She would remain under the earth for another century after this, now aware of the world around her as her senses gradually became one with those of the world that she once walked.
Becoming more and more aligned with the world, Alara began to get glimpses at a consciousness that exceeded all proper logic. Identifying it as the will of the world, Alara attempted to converse with this ancient conscious, only for it to silently impart a fraction of itself to her, allowing her to realize that the conscious that she had finally grew fully aware of was more than just her world's conscious, but the conscious of the being that had breathed life into her very universe. From here, she took on the being as her teacher and guide, learning and growing from its vague yet acute teachings until she was unearthed by the natural shifts in terrain.
Now free of the earth, Alara attempted to continue her lessons, but the ancient consciousness instead gave her new purpose: Protect those who could now protect themselves, not from mortal threats that walked the land, but from immortal threats that stalked the outskirts of the infinite cosmos and realms. Initially confused, Alara asked for guidance and soon met a mysterious cat by the name of Frea, a being given a similar task, who was to teach and awaken the power that lie dormant within her, not just the power of her mark, but the power she had gained just by conversing with the "Will of the Cosmos". It was here that Alara began her job as a defender of the many universes, now able to traverse them with ease and face those who lived outside them that wished to enter.
Alara is a serene individual, one who resides far beyond the understanding of reason and logic and any other sort of worldly parameter. If not for her pursuit of wisdom as opposed to power, she would quite easily be one of the larger threats to the universes, but under the guidance of the "Will of the Cosmos" and Frea she has learned that the pursuit of power and knowledge, while initially pure, corrupts those who delve too far. As such, she is rather reserved when seen.
Alara has caramel blonde hair and rose colored eyes. Her complexion is fair and her figure somewhat curvaceous. She wears a simple frilled short dress and a scarf and carries around a large cylindrical object wrapped in cloth. Despite this, her very presence is more than likely to drive mortals insane, let alone seeing her or being near her lest she contain the overwhelmingly powerful aura she has.
Her "father" and the being who awakened some of her power. Their relationship was quite antagonistic before Ragnarok's sealing. Alara hopes to never become like him.
Alara can somewhat cut loose around Aeon, though generally when the two meet it is on business terms as opposed to care free terms.
Alara's fiance before Ragnarok was born. Sirius, upon breaking free from Ragnarok's influence, continued his relationship with Alara before their paths took them in separate ways.
Alara is frank with the doctor. So long as he doesn't interfere with her work, she won't pay him any mind as she understands his situation from a rather personal standpoint.
Abilities and SkillsEdit
Heir of the TwilightEdit
One who embodies the power between opposites, a power more destructive than either side regardless of the scale of their power. Lacking in aspect, yet containing all of them, to be the Heir of Twilight is to be one who lacks a home anywhere natural, for the worlds, varied and many as they are, reject the calamitous power. Thought to be a fragment of the Original Balance, the power granted to the Heirs of Twilight is instead brought about when one attains such a paradoxical existence that even the universes falter when it comes to handling them, understanding that such a being, regardless of intent, no longer has a right to stay within a universe and as such, should stay between universes. A wielder of might beyond mortal and godly comprehension and defense enough to shrug off the the Divine Powers, Alara is the apex of what a Heir of the Twilight can become through hardship, trial and willpower, making her one of three who are no longer a part of the fifteen universes, instead a wanderer of the space between them acting as their protector from the external force seeking to bring death and ruin to them all.
Alara is- or once was- cursed, at first with immortality and a chilling presence, but after her failed execution, this slowly grew. Her simply chilling presence began to strip away at the minds, souls and bodies of those around her, driving them into an insane frenzy before they expired. Even after being buried alive, this only continued to grow more and more malevolent, spreading far beyond her body as time passed. Once freed from her living grave, the aura around Alara, coupled with her power beyond compare, become potent enough to rip the life and sanity from the universe she presided in if enough time passed, prompting her to leave for their sake, as with each life taken in such a way, Alara became aware of their presence for a moment before any semblance of them was gone, unable to reincarnate. Different from her Miasma, which can be activated at will, the best Alara can do about the curse tied to her being is suppress it to prevent unnecessary carnage.
Possibly due to her conversations with the "Will of the Cosmos" Alara can manipulate tears in the fabric of space, time and reality, though she only does so to mend any tears she or others create.
Another skill possibly gained from the "Will of the Cosmos" is Alara's ability to manipulate the flow of time-space as well as read it, giving her agility beyond the kin of even beings faster than light as well as an unstated immunity to effects that distort either.
Due to the mark on her chest, Alara can manifest a palpable sickening aura that cripples and kills things within the immediate area. She seldom does so as this same aura can also spawn monstrous entities that seem to harbor a grudge against all things that live.
Alara's attempt at creating a spell. To put it simply, she detonates a proto-universe within a universe inside another universe, creating a massive field of death around her. She of course is unaffected.
All Rending StrikeEdit
Technically not an actual technique, but Alara deciding to actually add follow through to any attack of hers. Denoted by a breathing shift, this attack, whether it connects or misses, will decimate everything in front and around Alara within a range of her choice. Being actually hit by said blow will obliterate things quite thoroughly. Using a bladed weapon with this is akin to giving a person the Vorpal Sword and expanding its range massively. To be blunt, this is a near-Smite, off by just a hair in terms of authenticity.
Weapons and EquipmentEdit
Wing of the DepartedEdit
A polearm Alara found lying on the ground resembling a scythe. Not a weapon per se, but a distraction.
A greatsword Alara created when tasked with creating a weapon akin to her soul. Hardly used because of its overwhelming might, forcing Alara to draw this means that many, many, many things are about to die.
A symbol of sorts that appears when Alara grows serious. Amplifies her speed and reaction time in exchange for energy.
Alara's eyes glow a brighter red and her short hair rises. Other than this, her shadow takes on the countenance of the grim reaper to those she directs this power at.
Queen of the EndEdit
Alara's hair turns white and her eyes glow amber wile her skin gains a blue tint. Quite literally capable of ending at least one universe, but hardly used if at all.
