Raiken Hariko is a native to Sirisia. He lived in Hariko village prior to its invasion, and set out to gain power in order to kill Ryazan to avenge his village.
Raiken has deep blue eyes and short-medium length, blond hair with minimal light blue streaks in the front. Raiken wears a long white high collard coat with a slate grey long sleeve turtleneck shirt beneath it. The coat has matte, light blue streaks on the ends. He wears beige/light brown pants and mid-length boots. The boots are a mix of grey, black, and brown.
When Invoking Frostbite, Raiken's hair becomes long and white, and his body becomes longer and thinner while his skin turns a pale purplish-grey. He gains icy blue glowing eyes with small white horns on his forehead and sharp teeth.
The Raid of Hariko Village Edit
When Raiken was a child, Hariko village was raided by Ryazan and many of the people living there were either captured or killed. The village was completely destroyed. Luckily, a Cerulian trader from Deep Lake had been in town when it happened and managed to grab 5 children and take them into the lake with him so that they could be saved. Raiken was one of those five children, and after Ryazan left the children were returned to their homes and cared for by the Cerule, who trained them to use the water affinity in a way unique to deep lake so that one day they may avenge their families. After they learned all they could they all split into different directions to get stronger on their own.
Journey to Lastris Edit
Raiken went to the Gate of Alberose, in the city of Lastris, Stalor, in the hopes of becoming stronger. He managed to get admitted to The Pillar of the Black Moon's training grounds a month before the opening was predicted to happen. After training and being possessed by an ice demon named Frostbite, Raiken left Lastris instead of being inducted into the cult. This caused outrage within the cult and periodically Raiken comes into contact with bounty hunters who are contracted to capture him. Frostbite, once Raiken gained more complete control of him, told Raiken where to find a special sword with his namesake that would allow him to attain even more power.
Obtaining the Blade Frostbite Edit
Raiken began to prepare to travel to the Northern Continent in order to retrieve the sword Frostbite, the complimentary weapon of his demonic possession. Raiken discovered that a Yusparian trading company was about to conduct an expedition to the Northern continent and was hiring guards. On his way to Yuspar, Raiken met Haruu Bastion, another traveler who had recently left his home. While some pirate attacks occurred during the trip, the group was able to sail to the Northern Continent with little damage done. Once there, Raiken traveled to The Vipers Fangs, two tall mountains located near Sastrus Bay. Once there, Raiken found the blade in icy caves close to the base of the mountain. The caves were infested with Icy Kobolds, small goblins notorious for stealing energy items. Once Raiken defeated the Kobolds, he obtained the sword.
The Invasion of Sirisia Edit
Ryazan, once he built up a large enough army, invaded Sirisia and marched all the way to the gates of Riverfront. Delric at this point had gathered all of the Hariko orphans and together with Magnate Oris they had set up a defense. The siege of Riverfront lasted 10 days, and on the 10th day Ryazan finally appeared. All 5 orphans and Magnate Oris worked together to defeat Ryazan, but not before Ryazan removed and destroyed Oris' heart. Raiken then left to Tababrin to become stronger.
Frostbite (Sword) Edit
Raiken is in possession of an extremely powerful sword named Frostbite, which is the complimentary weapon to his demon possession. The sword grans the user control over ice and can elongate much farther than its normal reach. It also has the ability to freeze anything it touches, this ability is so potent that Raiken cannot hold the sword without negative effects and must allow his arm to be possessed by frostbite to hold it. The sword it kept safe within Frostbite the demon's soul, where Raiken can materialize it whenever he chooses.
Quicksilver Rod Edit
Raiken obtained the Quicksilver Rod when he gained All Things Begin. The rod is a long thin glistening silver pole that Raiken can to call to him, and it appears in his hand. The rod is in the shape of a rectangular prism, with long thin sides and flat ends. The rod has multiple intrinsic abilities, such as self multiplication and binding. While the abilities aren't necessarily offensive, Raiken can also throw the rod like a lance with powerful force.
Water Manipulation Edit
Raiken, being trained by the Cerule, is extremely adept at intricate control over water abilities. He is extremely proficient in shaping water into whatever he wants, intricately controlling the water in his techniques. Raiken prefers attacking from a distance, and will mostly form water into bows or dragons.
Frostbite (Possession) Edit
Known as the Dreaded Demon of Winter, Frostbite is a powerful demon with deadly abilities. He can control ice and fashioned a powerful sword with his own soul that he gave the same name as his own. Raiken can become fully and partially possessed by frostbite, granting him access to his icy techniques. When fully possessed he gains an immense amount of speed and durability, causing huge pillars of ice to erupt from the ground as he speeds through the battlefield.
All Things Begin Edit
A very powerful art that is one half of the Arts of Balance, with the other being All Things End. All things begin is an inherently defensive art, manifesting itself as a glistening white cloak as well as the quicksilver rod. All things begin, being focused around the mind, derives its power from the strength of the users mind, and therefore Raiken continuously trains his mind in order to increase the power of this ability. With increased strength of the mind, the Quicksilver rod can be multiplied and used as a binding, and the cloak can be used to block attacks and increase the powers of the wearer. This art also becomes more powerful as he gets closer to Haruu, the holder of All Things End, as the resonance of their souls is greater.
