War is overdue, The time has come for you
Power Negation; Intermediate: Abilities within a 6 yard diameter will be negated naturally. If Kal tries he can push this to an 8 yard diameter, however powers that exist within those additional 2 yards, 6 feet, will simply be weakened and not totally negated.
Vampiristic Hemomancy; Intermediate: With deep enough concentration Kal can sense, detect, and manipulate blood. So far he can control blood that is free from a body (such as spilt blood or blood stored in banks) as well as detecting certain blood within a person.
Aim, shoot, kill your leaders
Warped and bewitched, Time to erase whatever they say
Kal doesn't have an overly impressive build, he's of an average height and though he keeps in shape with regular athletics he isn't all that muscular or toned. He's lean but still somewhat toeing that scrawny line of a teenager who'd much rather play video games than engage in any physical sports. His skin is a deep shade of brown, not unlike straight-grained mahogany timber, mostly void of scars or blemishes and especially modifications (makes it harder to identify him). Kal's hair is coal black and styled with twists on the top while shaved with designed parts on the sides, with a lack of sideburns. As accessories he wears rectangle framed glasses, his vision really is terrible without, and a chain of a mysterious medallion that reaches just beneath his neckline.
The young assassin's style of dress can be considered urban, or "street". He goes for loose fitting clothing made of comfortable and breathable materials. He normally wears t-shirts, some with subtle designs over them but most blank outside of color. Kal also only wears name brand sneakers. All in all about the usual attire for a kid around his age, though he will sometimes add in flare from his families ancestry involving voodoo.
Oppose and disagree, Destroy demonocracy
Kal is prideful and arrogant, it was probably inescapable given his family history; the Laveau's have a long and truly deep relationship with the magics of Voodoo. Kaligula's rather self-obsessed belief in himself also comes from the fact that he is something of prodigious in the realm of killing, he has a natural knack for it in fact. Being of a strategic mind and merciless in pursuit as well as execution, he has a flawless stroke of attack.
He is loud and boisterous to the point that one can adequately assume that Kal is not happy until everyone knows of his greatness, or at least has heard of it. However this is only under the circumstance where Kal feel it necessary, such as others speaking of or praising another, or if they dare mention worries or fears in his presence. Kal is a hothead after all and it doesn't take much to get his angry little soul blazing, which he typically responds with insults or physical violence.
An incredibly sore subject for Kal is the fact that he is human, as most humans are powerless and oblivious to the "true" world he views most of them as infantile and hates being technically a member of their race. However the entrapment of the Hellion which powers him has had a dark effect on him and at times makes him see human as but pitiful creatures that can be extinguished with little worry.
These people are torn, Wild and bereft, Assassin is born
The Laveau family is ancient and legendary in the world of voodoo. They have long been practitioners and always garnered a bit of attention from humans, mostly as fantastical showmen and women, the most famous of them being Marie Laveau, the freed creole Voodoo Queen of Louisiana. As witches and voodoo priests their magic waned and became unstable naturally, making them less powerful than those who would possess magic as a more natural ability. However, the Laveau family would not be weakened. Marie Laveau worked to straighten her magic by working with spirits and Djinn for portions of their power and for generations this was how many of the Laveaus kept their powers stabilized. However, a far off branch of the family tree, one of Madame Marie's great-great-great grandsons, St. John Laveau, decided contracts and pacts were insufficient and not longlasting enough. As a voodoo priest he used his magic to trick a Hellion into a small contract and then performed an entrapment; an incredibly difficult and likewise dangerous spellcasting.
Though entrapments are usually ended by a death (either of the human or entrapped inhuman) St. John performed a spell that would transfer his entrapment through a ritual of sacrifice. The entrapment must be passed on to the next generational Laveau upon the age of 15, enacted by the self sacrifice of the then holder of the entrapment. If the holder is otherwise killed, or happens to die, before the ritual then the entrapment ends and the Hellion is freed, which it will then likely seek retribution on the whole of the Laveau family.
Kal first learned of all this at the age of thirteen, two years before he was passed the entrapment. But even before then he was raised in a family that revolved around assassination. He was always taught to hone his skill and body, perfect his aim, always know the ins and outs of any location he should enter, to be ever resourceful. His training began at 13 and he showed a clear aptitude for the lifestyle, the next six years were spent crafting him into a sharpened blade.
At fifteen the ritual was performed. Kal's father ended his own life, bestowing upon his son the powers of the Hellion that had once powered him. He has had four years to intertwine his physical abilities and those granted to him by the Hellion paired to him
