Denizen is the 7th member of the powerful 12 Locks. He is known for his information gathering skills and use of wood manipulation.
Denizen is thinner in stature. He has long messy spiky white hair and white eyes. He wears a blank white mask that has eye slits that resemble a fox's eyes. He wears a cloak that goes down to his mid thigh. The cloak is brown and seems worn. The cloak has a hood that Denizen usually wears up. He has a dark brown shirt and dark brown pants, and his pants have various leather accents. He has white bandages that wrap his entire hand and go halfway up his forearm.
Denizen has the roman numeral VII on his shin, indicating that he is the 7th lock.
Denizen was born as a human living in Lustana. When he was just a small child aged at 5 year, he was travelling with his parents to the Ebony Isles, as his older sister was getting married to a Vaneer and they decided to have a traditional Vaneeri wedding on his home island. They travelled to a tiny island north of Renalis in order to have the wedding. Unfortunately, a few days after they arirved the island was raided by Ryazan's troops and Denizen's family was killed. Denizen, being only a child, was taken back to Ashwood and experimented on, eventually becoming one of the 12 Locks.
Root is a weapon that Denizen made himself using his wood manipulation. Root has the appearance of a long wooden staff with a lantern bound to it by long strips of leather. There is a small section of white bandages wrapped around it towards the bottom. Root has a special ability to communicate with Denizen's energy, enabling him to see and hear what is happening in an area that he is not presently in.
Denizen's owl mask is actually an energy item that he can use to manifest a being with specific abilities. Denizen can remove the mask and throw it into the air, causing a robed figure to manifest wearing the mask. The Owl is able to see extremely far and can "see" energy, allowing it to sense anything that has energy within it even if it can't directly see the person or object. Denizen is able to utilize this entity as a second set of eyes, being able to see whatever the Owl sees.
Denizen has developed wood manipulation through the use of his water and earth affinities. Denizen practices a high level of form in his wood manipulation, giving him the ability to create an object and then give it a finite supply of energy, instead of having to constantly flow energy into it. This enables him to leave spells, which can be useful for traps and other uses.
Denizen has also developed plant manipulation as well, but usually uses it in conjunction with his wood manipulation to create trees with leaves, or flowers on wood.
Due to Ryazan's experiments, Denizen has a potential enhance placed on him that generally powers him up and increases the strength of his techniques.
Denizen can use a form of transportation art that he developed. This method allows him to traverse to various locations using tree roots. The roots come from the ground and surround him, pulling him underground. Since this technique takes time, it is not practical for him to use this during battle.
Adept Energy Suppression
Denizen can suppress his energy to undetectable levels, even being able to hide it from people like Kai Hikari, who are known to be extremely adept in sensing energy. This feat is considered quite astounding considering the sheer amount of energy that Denizen has, being the 7th Lock.
- Root - This is Denizen's intelligence gathering ability. Denizen causes a flower to appear on the end of his staff. This flower then releases pollen containing seeds, which travel along air currents. Once the pollen lands at the location it grows a special flower on anything that is a part of nature. The flower is not obvious and blends in well. Denizen can then use Root to see an hear what is happening at this location. Each flower has a finite amount of energy and withers once that energy is gone.
- Wood Thorn - Denizen uses this ability in multiple ways. He can use it by creating a long wooden thorn in his hand and using it for close quarters combat, or he can shoot wooden thorns from the ground at the enemy.
- Twisted Forest - This causes Root to grow a series of small wooden thorns along the weapon, except for the section with white bandages. The thorns take the pattern of a pine tree, with shorter thorns at the top and longer thorns near the bandaged part.
- Twisted Forest: Pin Needle - The thorns on Root shoot off of the weapon rapidly at the target of the attack.
- Twisted Forest: Bane Venom - The thorns on Root secrete a poisonous liquid that can paralyze and deteriorate the body if it gets in the targets bloodstream
- Tree Fortress - Large roots sprout from the ground and encircle Denizen, creating a large effective shield.
- Grand Forest Bloom - A multitude of roots sprout from the ground in the affected area, rapidly growing into trees and impaling the target.
- Sacred Tree Binding - Denizen grows a tree around the target. The tree is ornamented with spell tags and lanterns on the branches. This traps the target and slowly converts the target's energy into a special tree sap until there is nothing left.
- Release: Tree of Life - A tree sprouts from Denizen's back, which grows long branches. These branches begin growing wood mimicries of Denizen, who have the same combat prowess as him, however these wood creations cannot use arts. This technique consumes a lot of energy and also renders Denizen immobile, so Denizen prefers not to have to resort to using this.
