The Captain

KellMummyDude

He usually wears the jacket properly. A proper gentleman never appears undressed, after all.

Name: Unknown, people usually refer to The Captain by the name of one of the souls related to the whole of him/it. More common ones are Louis, Victor, and Clark. Other individuals from mytho-historical communities claim him to in fact be the “Prime” shard of Ohkiij, the ancient god of night and the afterlife.

Head Title: The Captain

Other titles: The Raider, The Raider Amalgamation, The Human, The Major, The Rider, The Freak, etc.

Age: Indeterminable

Height: Approx. 5′ 11″ depending of amount of soulmass

Weight: Approx 240 lbs depending of amount of soulmass

 

Primary magics and abilities: Capable of ludicrous feats of magic, The Captain can not only steal a person’s soul to be transformed into a “recessed” soul, he can also cast from the repertoire and mana- pool of any soul he takes, allowing a wide variety of immensely-power magics.

 

Original series: Nocturna League

 

Appearances: Nocturna League, Courts Divided, Xtreme Force

 

Personality: The Captain is a measured presence at most hours of the day, adhering to a moral code of sorts, as well as expecting those around him to at least respect some level of order and good conduct as well. That said he is usually soft spoken, genteel, and generally winsome. Most people who have worked with him would agree that he’s the best boss they’ve ever had, as he’s a confident, capable leader who can make educated, well-aimed decisions in seconds. This holds true for situations ranging from home decorating choices to choosing which flank of the enemy the cavalry should hit.

He isn’t against companionship and understanding his lowers, especially those he’s entrusted special rank to. He can be found drinking and discussing heavy topics with his top cadre members often.

No one really knows what he wants. Some argue that not even he himself knows what he wants. His motivations appear indecipherable to most, to the point that people regularly accuse him of being insane.

On occasion he will, not too unlike Overlord Chaos, lose parts of his social skills, allowing for humorous though sometimes catastrophic lapses in rhetoric. He sometimes refers to Colette with pastry names, genuinely under the impression that it would calm her down- silly Captain: Calling someone a bagel simply isn’t appropriate.

 

Influence: The Captain is a piece of the little-known and often-mythologized Ohkiij, thought to be the origin of the Inkrealm’s dark magics, and thus all forms of dark magic seen today.

Older players in the Omniverse landscape, namely the O.E.L. and Ywn, recognize him to be party to this massive entity of souls, and hunt him with the regular expectation of either containing or dispersing the tens of thousands, (though sometimes far more) souls that make him up.

He isn’t well known by any particular title, as he, like other shards of Ohkiij, take on “personas” as they travel through the Omniverse. The Captain is a more current title that he himself refers to, however.
