Student Template Version 2.2
Student Name: Elias Danielson
Birth Date: January 21st, 1997
Physical Appearance: Elias doesn't give off the most intimidating presence around, nor does he ever intend to either. Standing at a modest five feet, nine inches tall, and a mere 142 pounds soaking wet, he also has a build that reflect a dedication to some sort of martial art, much less physical activities. With all the working out he has done over the last couple of years, he built up some muscle on his frame, but not enough to be able to move or carry anything that's very heavy on his own. His hair is a slightly lighter shade of platinum blonde that ends down to his neck, and behind a set of gunmetal frames lies a deep sapphire shade of blue eyes. He also carries a pair of prescription sunglasses on him as well, just in case.
Whenever he's not found in his uniform, which he tends to just wear at most times while on campus, he can be found wearing assorted t-shirts which in some cases may not make sense to most people, but he finds the humor in. Ordinarily, he can be found in a thin black jacket, blue t-shirt, black denim jeans and a pair of black and white sneakers. He does have clothes for other occasions, but he'll more or less likely be seen in more relaxing attire before pulling those out of his closet.
Personality Elias is the kind of guy who would just go with the flow if he could help it. Not one to start any sort of conflict if he could help it, but one to try to have it cease if it gets too heated. He's not an outspoken person by nature, but he won't hesitate to make his voice heard if the topic is of importance.
People would also see that he's rather approachable though, as the last thing he'd do, unless something actually managed to upset him to that point, is tell people to take a hike. Especially since he's still trying to get a handle on being an Evo himself, so the words of advice from others like him are something that he tends to welcome hearing. And unless he has reason not to, he tends to treat people as equals, more then anything else. He also tends to be comfortable in practically any setting, no matter the amount of people around him.
Elias has had periods where he's shown how clever he can be, what with all the quiz shows he's seen over the years. Yet with all the positives that he has, there are only two things that scare the living daylights out of him. One is spiders, he's terrified of those things to the point where it's almost crippling. The other is the wrath of the friend he made after Evo's Dawn occurred. Seeing her at that level would probably scare anyone though.
History: Elias was born to Joseph, an international tradesman, and Marissa, an economics professor at the local university one warm, rainy day in Honolulu, Hawaii. He had a relatively normal life growing up, with the exception of not seeing his father on occasions due to the frequent business trips he had to take out of the country. Otherwise, he had what most would think would be a normal life. He had friends of varying nationalities on the island, he's taken trips with his father to some of the locales he frequents after he turned eight, he's even taken time to learn how to swim and surf like the other natives.
One week before Evo's Dawn, his father invited a trusted client of his from Japan to spend the new year with him and his family, as thanks for a multi-million dollar deal between their firms. Though, when he arrived, Joseph was surprised to see that he brought his daughter with him, as he was only familiar with her from photographs that he kept on him. It was explained that since he was a single father, and was so busy all the time with work, he wanted to at least spend the holidays with her. Luckily, Elias had a bunk bed, so that problem worked itself out. The few days passed, and the guests of his father got to know Elias, and slowly began to like him. His father's client saw that the morals that his father had were instilled into his son as well.
The night of New Year's Eve, or the countdown to Evo's Dawn, the adults were having as much fun and revelry as they could, as Elias's guests would be leaving the next day for Japan. Elias was about to go to bed early, when the girl he was sharing his room with called him to the outside patio. Once outside, she pointed up to a shooting star that was overhead while their parents were counting down the seconds to the New Year. As soon as they counted 1, the next thing they would hear would be the sounds of their children screaming in agony outside. Running to the sounds of the screams, Elias's parents would see him on the ground, crawling towards the door with what appeared to be a blanket of blue flames enveloping him. But as he uttered the simple words "H-help us..." to his family, he collapsed, and the flames disappeared with no burns on his body.
Luckily, his parents were able to make up a lie and say that there were fireworks they were using that misfired, and it was believable to the police who arrived on the scene. Two days later, Elias woke up in his own bed in a cold sweat, as his recollections of what happened rushed through his mind. Shortly afterwards, he emerged in the main room as his family and heir guests saw what was going on all around the world. Plus, due to the announcement by the American government, it was determined by all of the adults that Elias would also head to Japan when the others returned for his own safety. They determined that flying would be a bad idea, so it was decided that the trip back to Japan would be by boat, and Elias's father fronted the bill for all three.
More about the events were revealed to him as he arrived at their home in Saitama, especially with the world's reaction with the American's Martial Law. Elias decided that he wanted some way to defend himself, so he enrolled into a local martial arts school. In secret though, he was trying to recreate whatever happened to him on that night, but all he was able to do was create a blue shine around his hands and feet at most. In addition, the same girl that he was with constantly blamed him for what happened to her that night as well, either verbally or mentally, thanks to the link that they developed then.
Two relatively peaceful years later, after one of his classes had ended, Elias was on the way home when he had heard a scuffle in a nearby alley. Peering inside, he had seen his "acquaintance" in an altercation with a local street gang.... and was proceeding to beat the living daylights out of them. That is, until she was smacked in the back of the head with a pipe. Without thinking, Elias ran to her aid with the practice staff of his to keep the remaining thugs at bay. One of them thought that it was just a bluff, and started to pull out a knife as he started to walk towards where she was laying. Out of instinct, Elias started to perform a sweeping kick at him, but his leg started to glow blue, and after it connected with the thugs chest, a compressed wave caused him to not only fly back to where he was, but it also knocked down a couple others who were behind him. A couple others around them realized that he must have been an evo, and got the others to take off from the scene.
What Elias was able to hide however, as soon as the alley was cleared, was the fact that his leg was incredibly sore after he kicked that guy, causing him to fall down at his acquaintances side, who finally started to stir around as he was calling her father for a ride home. The two of them had a rather long conversation about what happened, before coming up to her father about transferring schools. After a very long talk where he eventually agreed, they got all of the red tape out of the way and arrived at the train station that would take them to the island where the school is located. However, Elias was able to board the train, his friend was detained due to an altercation at the station.

Elias / Adelina|
Shadowside's Resident Bug Gym Leader
|EndlessDreamers||Apr 16 2011, 09:46 AM Post #2|
School: Azura Evotelluric Academy
Year: 1st year
Designation/Primary Magic Principle: Internal Spiritual Energy Control
Magic Spells/Special Abilities:
Radiance of the Blue Pheasant: What Elias doesn't know is that the power that he uses is only part of the true ability that he gained on Evo's Dawn. Deep down, a rare spiritual force began to stir within him briefly became active that night. The most that happened was the appearance of what looked to be a blanket of blue flames on his back, which disappeared once he lost consciousness, and continues to remain dormant ever since. Also, what he doesn't know is that the awakening of his abilities tied him to the destiny of two other people on Earth....
6 Spiritual Paths: While it sounds like a basis of some sort of martial art, it's drastically different in Elias's case. To his knowledge, it's the basis of what makes him an Evo. This allows him to use the natural energy of his own body, and project it in various ways. Only one maneuver has made itself known at this time however, so it's unknown to him just how many ways this can be utilized. Over time, the base six maneuvers will be learned, and he could learn create variations on these if practiced enough.
Tempest Leg - Out of sheer desperation, this first maneuver was used when Elias was attempting to save his friend and his life with a sweeping kick with his right leg. Through further private practice afterwards, he was able to find that he only has so much usage at a time. He can only use this maneuver up to three times a day, and is only able to project it forwards up to 20 feet, but it will cover a five foot arc in front. It can only bludgeon whatever it hits, and can't inflict any sort of wound as if someone was cut. The closer the target it to Elias, the more energy is inflicted. For example, if someone was the full 20 feet away, the force would be like a person getting hit with a baseball bat, but if it was point blank, it would be the force of a speeding baseball moving at 70 mph over a wider spread.
However, there is risk to Elias's own health if this is used at point blank due to the initial feedback from the energy usage. If it's done once, there would be several bruises on his leg, making him walk with a limp. Twice would cause lacerations to open, making his leg bleed out and would make him only be able to drag it if he tried to walk. All three times would completely break his leg, and would need medical attention.
Telepathic Link: On the night of Evo's Dawn, while he was collapsed onto the ground, Elias could hear the thoughts of the girl who was with him. In addition, he is able to mentally communicate to her, as long as she is within a one mile radius. Unfortunately, this is a permanent bond to that one person, and cannot be picked up by anyone else. Also, she does have the ability to tell what he is thinking, as the link works both ways. Both of them can shut their minds to keep the other from picking up on what they are thinking. Also, the closer that they are within that range, the easier it is for them to keep in touch with each other. If at the extent of their range, then it's very difficult for either of them to communicate, with the sound of static interfering between two increasing the farther apart they are. It should also be noted that while the link only works between the two of them, and that they can't try to read anyone else's minds, other people with mental capabilities can listen in to whatever they're saying. However, they would also hear the static if they are trying to communicate at long distance.
Training: Training: Bojutsu (Intermediate): Elias has mastery of the basic stances and movements of staff technique. This is a versatile style, focusing on speed over power to swiftly twirling a staff to catch an opponent off guard, focused thrusts and uses a great deal of thought to perform counters. Currently, he is studying how to precisely land more advanced blows, in addition to more advanced combos. In addition, using a staff is a very mental discipline, with Elias always looking for weaknesses with his opponent.
If he predicted his movements incorrectly, or if his timing is off, it's possible that he could leave himself open for a counter attack. Also, this style utilizes a wider open space then sword fighting, especially with the horizontal twirling movements used for self-defense when surrounded. If confined to a small space, Elias would be forced to use thrusts and tight horizontal or diagonal twirling movements, limiting the amount of actual force behind each blow by half. And of course, if the staff is broken, he can't really use the style at all. Also, as it is a physically draining technique, Elias currently can't perform constant movements with this, and/or block constant attacks for more then 8 minutes at a time before his arms start to wear out.

Bag of Holding
Archer - A 6 month old Northern Inuit dog that has had all of his shots and checkups to this point, Elias decided to adopt him from a dog breeder in town. He currently weighs 45 pounds, and is just over a foot and a half tall with a silver coat with white underbelly. Unlike most other Inuit, he isn't quite as rambunctious when Elias isn't home, and is content being left alone while he's out, but is still just as friendly to guests to their dorm, or while he's out for walks.
Currently, he's still to young to know most tricks, and he's slowly being taught new ones, but all he knows now is to sit, heel & fetch. Also, besides cameos in Elias's personal SL's, he'll only be in the occasional post around campus, as he's too young to be taken off grounds at this time.
