abilities & limitations Illusion: With the usage of light, Nyx can create illusions using light creating objects that may appear to be there but actually are not. A hologram to be exact would seem to fit this description, but these illusions can even feel solid and be touched. Through the manipulation of the photons also creating what is commonly known to those who study his ability as solid light. Light Concentration: This ability allows beams of light to be shot in concentrated forms making lethal rays of energy from photons. However, they follow the normal rules of light by reflecting off objects making it a good crowd control ability. Light Generation: Nyx can generate light from his body, his own blood being bioluminescent. Orb Creation: He can create orbs of light that will remain in the form of a ball, these balls of light will constantly illuminate an area until he no longer has use for it or when he leaves the area. Invisibility via Light: This is a tactical move, by preventing photons from touching him or rather going through or arround him, he can be seen as many things whether it be a black spot in a lit hallway similar to a shadow or not there at all. Solar Healing: While in the pesence of the sun, it appears the light heals wounds 4x faster, but this comes at a price of being unable to use his powers during the healing.

Abilities & Limitations

  • Illusion: With the usage of light, Nyx can create illusions using light creating objects that may appear to be there but actually are not. A hologram to be exact would seem to fit this description.

  • Light Concentration: This ability allows beams of light to be shot in concentrated forms making lethal rays of energy from photons. However, they follow the normal rules of light by reflecting off objects making it a good crowd control ability.

  • Orb Creation: He can create orbs of light that will remain in the form of a ball, these balls of light will constantly illuminate an area until he no longer has use for it or when he leaves the area.

  • Invisibility via Light: This is a tactical move, by preventing photons from touching him or rather going through or around him, he can be seen as many things whether it be a black spot in a lit hallway similar to a shadow or not there at all.

There are limits to everything, he is without a doubt dependent on their being light. Should he run into a place absent or low on light, he is significantly weaker. He can also burn himself, his manipulation of light doesnt make him immune to the heat some of his attack generate though he is resistant to a certain extent.

Skills

Nyx has a variety of physical skills majority of them being fighting styles, he is trained to use the batons of the DEA but he extended this by using them like dual blades. He is trained in hand to hand combat specifically in Muay Thai and Judo.

Mental & Emotional abilities include manipulation using words, he can virtually lie with no problem and even make people feel comfortable with just his smile alone. He is known to have a silver tongue to the point some wonder if it's his ability. It's not just simple psychology and charisma.

Though his skills also expand to a more tactical setting of thievery, he can break through locks with relative ease as long as he has the right materials. He can of course open basic locks with a nice bobby pin or even a credit card, this is just from free time practice of course.

Weaknesses

  • Lack of Light: Without light, there is minimal to manipulate, so he can still cloak himself but more offensive abilities are null and void making him a stealth user in cases like this.

  • Vision: If he can't see, his illusion ability fails despite him being able to imagine he needs to determine where and when to perform these illusions. Meaning if he can't remember the exact location or see it. He can't perform illusions.

  • Reflective Surfaces: If it reflects, it can't negate or bounce back his ability, that is until it melts from the destructive light going through or rather into it. This is a battle of how long Nyx can hold his ability up.

  • Prone to Mistakes: Nyx is human, it sucks but it's true and like every man or woman he can make mistakes. Including his own abilities manipulation.
  • Mortal: Nyx is mortal, and therefore like every mortal he can die from basically anything a normal human can die from.

Personality

Manipulative. Kind. Sarcastic. Patient.

These are the very few words used to describe someone who has all the makings of a sociopath, yet only because of his care can he truly be distinguished making his career easy. As an investigator, he can use his smile and charms to make even the most vile beast comply with his will. Though he isn’t against using his powers, he limits himself only because of his job and the supressent he is forced to take.

Nyx love wise is very… awkward. He isn’t used to people being interested in him enough to want to date. Most females and males avoid him because of his job but also because of the fact he is plagued by resting bitch face. A sad aura seems to float around him when he is alone or not pay attention, usually he prevents it from showing but it always manages to slip through the cracks if even for a moment.

He does have a relatively common quirk, he eats junk food 24/7. Literally there is a never a day when he does not have a bag of chips, even during an investigation or during questioning you can find him eating something. Along with the fact you’ll see him attached to his electronic devices, mainly his cellphone and his laptop. Small quirks but nonetheless they make him the unique agent that the DEA is happy to have even despite his being an Evolute…

Welcome to the complex book of Nyx.

History

|| Birth||

Born in a family of normal typics was always fun, Nyx was not blessed with good luck at his birth he was placed into family of normal humans and to their surprise the newborn child that birthed by their son's wife was an Evolute. The young couple who bore him, had a secret they failed to tell their family, their normal son had a child with a carrier. Ah the world was such a joke to them until he began displaying his powers, at first they were weak but they knew the truth about his tier. Soon they got stronger, he got stronger, and the doctors began fully acknowledging that his ability was dangerous as dangerous as they had said in his tier level.

||Teens||

Pre-teen years it became worse, the government watched his powers expand until finally he was sent to the Carrie Institute for his tier determination. It was surprisingly normal, though strictly regulated such as to expect from any government facility. Those who attended learned their abilities but also learned to suppress or manage them accordingly, it was a place where one should’ve made friends...allies. But Nyx was at the time anti-social which he broke free of near the end of his stay at the Institute.

A saddening day passed on his 17th year of life when he was disowned by his family, it should have cause resentment in the young boy but he only felt a cold sadness for them. Despite the hatred so many of his kind had for their normal counterparts, he found none of it needed, guided by logic he shoved his emotions to the side until finally he had left.

||21 years||

Nyx had his career, though it wasn’t much of a choice due to his high ranking tier, but it was enough so that he was happy to be able to help those in need…

Vigilante’s always existed and in this case, he was one, though he kept it completely undercover and barely using his ability unless entirely needed. Who would suspect that one of the vigilante’s of the city was a normal member of the DEA acting as a detective. It was something Nyx needed to do for some reason, like a strange addiction to protecting those that couldn’t protect themselves. Even if they said they could.

Appearance

Nyx is usually someone who is considered quite fashionable, he prefers newer items and has been known to commonly shop in his free time. He also has a tattoo of a pentagram on his lower thigh, along with trinity symbol on his chest.

Alongside these fashion quirks, he is known for appearing taller in pictures in reality he is only about 5'6".

Magic was natural for Nyx, using it and seeing it being used, but he always avoided other creatures that went bump in the night. Today was different, he went looking for the unknown, vampires excluded but he knew they were unavoidable in this city. So he simply stuck to carrying items to stun them. in specific holy water only for self-defense not to attack them.

Yet in the location he found himself attending he didn't feel the need to bring it, actually leaving it hidden in the inner console of his car. Silver hair fluttered in the wind as he stood back, he was almost terrified to enter, his mind racking up the ways things could go wrong. The ways he could humiliate himself, it was to the point he had to stop thinking because he felt his emotions working up and that made for sloppy spell casting.

Two glittering items made their appearance, two crystal stud earrings shaped like arrows. They seemed to shift in coloration with his mood, but they had no real ability and it was a mere trick. It changed colors based of heat, similar to an old fashioned mood ring, a cute trick but they were imbued with magic.

But, his logical mind won and he was off, his internal struggle hidden from the world as he turned into a bad 'witch'. The demeanor exuded confidence even if he didn't currently have it, but he carried another feeling. One of dominance, not as a challenge but to show he was not a toy or something to be played with, it was a common misconception men and women alike had about him.

He was the Spellbound Trigger, he was a badass witch, and he refused to let anything phase him. If he could sing for his YouTube and take brutal trolls and go and sing at shows and not cave. He could handle supernaturals.

He hoped....
