Species: Treeant (Variant & Blessed)
Appearance: Thornfiend is a towering figure, made of pure wood, with the same coloring as birch wood, outside of the red and brown accents on the tips of his stick like protrusions and his hands. The figure of the treeant is that of a humanoid with no human features outside of the way his "muscles" are designed. That is all in part of his backstory. His head is similar to a helmet from a knight, slits showing red pupils with no whites, just red orbs hiding in the darkness of his open nose, eye and mouth slots. He has no reproductive organs. His nails are like claws. Also made of a wood, albeit sharp and sturdy.
Apparel: He does not wear clothes.
Made From Wood (Passive):
This is a racial ability of the treeant, boosted with the blessing he had received from the Earth Goddess in his realm, his body is made of a super tough wood. Impervious to basic slashes, stabs and blunt attacks, that hold no magical weight. The density of this wood and the way his body is formed allows for him to weigh over half a ton and have high durability.
Not having vital organs, only way for him to be feasibly stopped is for the head to be chopped off his body.
Any damage to the body will be healed upon consumption of wood of any kind.
Although he is made of wood, fire does not burn him any better, it simply damages him as it would a person.
This wood can also be manipulated in ways that would make even a contortionist cringe, overall allowing for full body manipulation.
Earth Goddess Blessing (Passive):
Able to understand every language spoken, even to those non-verbal, like animals. Although he himself does not have proper speech, he speaks through telepathy, as if he were speaking to one's head directly, the voice would be heard loud and clear from any distance and direction.
An affinity with earthy beings, entities and abilities. Animals see him as a kind man, one made from nature to defend nature, thus he can calm even the wildest of animals and creatures within this parameter.
Wood Manipulation (Passive):
As a treeant by nature, he is able to manipulate his own wooden body in any way he pleases, and as long as he is making physical contact with wood outside of his body, he can manipulate it as freely as he can his own body.
Earth Manipulation (Active):
Earth manipulation is a skill granted to him by the Earth Goddess, which can generate and manipulate the dirt, mineral, rock, and other earthy materials as he wills it, the force at which he can manipulate said earth is dependent on his physical strength, only allotting him the ability to move his manipulations at a speed and force that match his stats.
1 Energy per post: Can manipulate an amount of earth equal to his size with each post.
2 Energy per post: Can manipulate double his size in terms of amount manipulated.
3 Energy per post: Can manipulate three times his size in Earth manipulation.
Super Strength (Passive):
Of course, with his large physique and heavy body, enhanced strength comes with it. Capable of picking up more than a couple times his own weight. There is no way he would be able to walk if he couldn't even carry himself in terms of weight.
Quick, Parallel Thinking (Passive):
Reaction time, brain processing and analyzing is accelerated and doubled by the fact that he can think twice in the same time frame. As if he was running on two brains, which were also genius levels.
Healer of Nature (Active):
Using up the natural energy in the air and ground, Thornfiend can regenerate damaged trees, grass, plants, animals and people. An overall healing ability that would cost 1 ENR per post.
(He can heal said effected targets only if in physical contact with them though.)
Destruction (Active, Ultimate Skill):
For the cost of 2 ENR he is capable of switching half of all his other stats into Strength.
(I.E. 12 strength turns into 21 STR, but the other stats get halved, 4 speed = 2 speed, 10 defense = 5, 4 energy = 2.).
This ability will only last for 5 posts before being automatically deactivated and returning the stats back.
This tree ant is as old as time, not really, he was born over two millennia ago. Back then though he had no sentience and acted upon only the instinctual nature of his race and herd. Although he was more or less shaped like a tree for half his life, he was a strong treeant, having overcome many knights and mages in his time, up until the commander of a nearby human kingdom decided to cut him down to size, literally. Thornfiend, not named at this time, was cut into pieces and barely kept alive, although this did not prevent him from ending the commander with a cheap method of feigning death and using a thorn to end this knight's life. As his life met its end, he was awoken in black void. The form of his tree no longer tangible and instead an orb with his life essence floated about until a few seconds after, the Earth Goddess his race revered unknowingly, appeared from thin air. She spoke words unbeknownst to the treeant, in fact he was mostly unsure of what was being said till he was given a new form. Which took after the commander he had slayed, similar muscular build and helmet worn. The reason this was happening is because a treeant evolves after killing 1000 humans in their lifetime, taking a more humanoid shape and even gaining intelligence.
Once he had the imposing new form, he was more personified, he had a character, a voice, a name and a sense of emotions. It did not take long for him to feel himself around and check out his own new body. The goddess proceeded to hand over a couple blessings and a share of her power to send him off into a new realm, one where he can thrive by defending nature from critters of darkness and malicious entities aiming to end the world. This made Thornfiend a good guy, in fact he was neutral good on the moral compass, he just had a very scary look. With his new found powers and abilities, he took it upon himself to live with the land he was sent to, called Solace, within the forest of Windhill. (Location will be Windhill Wilderness)
Now it was just a matter of surviving even further, there may even be a new evolution for the creature.
