Nitemare Tournament Entry by MindOfGenius Nitemare Tournament Entry by MindOfGenius
This was a comission done for me by :iconthemindofanartist: Thanks! You did a great job!
---------------------------------
Name: Nairb. No real reason behind the name; was just given to him before the tourney started so others could call on him if needed, since he had no real name, save for the title of “Id”.

Age: 16 years of existence, though no true “age” has been established.

History: Spawned from a young boy’s mind as “Id”, has been growing and feeding off of his emotions ever since his existence began, 16 years ago. Has no “real” body; is a semi-solid demonic-spirit creature (not even HE knows what he truly is) who can flex his grip on his existence, and lives off of others to survive, except for when resting in dreams or people‘s subconscious; this enables him to live/exist Nitemare’s world without any expenditure of his life, although controlling a person would certainly make him feel healthier and stronger. Wants power and control; and is looking for another stronger, better host to control when his current one dies so he can live on in a new body. Enjoys torturing people, both physically (including making numerous cuts, as well as such tactics as controlled drowning) and mentally (including constant scaring of his victims to verbal/mental harassment); prefers mental torture because his victims last longer than through physical torture.

Personality: Cocky, arrogant, rude, overall ass to practically everybody he meets. Taunts his opponents CONSTANTLY to get into their heads. Often quotes movies, music, and famous people, both old and new. Uses opponent’s personal history and what they care about most against them. Will make friends, but only to use them for his overall benefit. Plots a lot before hand, but if gets agitated, doesn’t think straight. Curses a bit, but not TOO excessively, except maybe if in a lot of pain ^^;...

Weapon: His hands, which fingers extend out two inches and sharpen into blades; his feet, which he can grow small talon-like blades on the heels as well as the toes. When not in use, has human-looking hands and feet. Uses environment as a weapon as well.

Fighting Style: A strange combination of stealth, animalistic instincts, and kickboxing. Hides in shadows and waits for the prefect moment to strike, and depending upon the situation, either unleashes a quick barrage of attacks, or one-hit-kills like stabbing through the victim’s chest: although prefers to keep them alive as long as possible to “;play” with them. Defiantly does NOT fight head-to-head or brawls.

Pros: His sneakiness enables him to move quickly throughout the area quickly and quietly. Ability to shift his form prevents him from being crushed under and large objects; can make himself more or less solid as the situation demands. Is an expert at psychological warfare/torture, and is pretty good at physical torture.

Cons: Can’t deal out or take a lot of physical damage. Doesn’t kill his victims quickly, giving them time to counter-attack and recover. Takes some insults personally, distracting himself from the fight. Is a prime target for “good” people, and is marked as a backstabber for “bad” people, so friends he can trust are hard to come by. Can’t keep constantly shifting how solid he is, for it tires him out when he does it too much. Sunlight weakens him slightly, makes it harder for him to shift his physical form.

Note: Although he doesn’t wear clothes, he may “dress up” with stuff he finds from others, searching closets, etc., but will quickly abandon them if he needs to shift through objects.

Is a semi-solid demon-spirit thing, so direct attacks wont hurt him, but the impact will- if, say, shot with an arrow, it would get stuck in him, and he would have to materialize his hand a bit stronger in order to pull it out, thusly making the hand susceptible to damage. In order to cause actual pain, he needs to be in a solid form- the easy way would be to get him tired from constantly shifting his form from, say, continuously throwing large objects on him.

Can take over people’s minds, but only from entering the victim’s body via an open wound (natural orifices such as the mouth don‘t count). The bigger and more recent the wound, the easier it will be. Killing the person under his control doesn’t kill him, but it does weaken him greatly. He could (technically) control the dead body and make it move like a zombie, but he would still be stuck inside; controlling dead bodies doesn’t give him any life force as well, so it would drain it instead. He is always keen to try and avoid such situations.

His voice is slightly raspy and deep; more like someone sick than someone evil sounding...

EDIT: NO, this is NOT a fan-made creation of Nightmare! Because Nairb CAN'T manipulate himself to the extent that Nightmare does, nor does he have a legion of creatures under his control, and Narib can be a BIT more elloquent. And Nairb doesn't smoke...or always wear clothing...

Intriguing character - I like how he's arrogant with such powers and can even temporarily control people. :)

Thanks. He can control people for long periods of time; its just that someone might kill the body he's in, so being in it longer than just useing as a "battery" of sorts is GENERALY (for him) a bad idea ^^;...

Yeah, I see. But then I could see him possessing someone stronger, like Tormentor or even Chris, and he wouldn't have to worry about dying or anything. :P

if he could get close enough...make a big enough wound; have enough of an opportunity....IF he could, then yeah, everyone would be screwed. ^_^

XD Indeed Nairb would like that: it'd just be a lot of work though.

I should also note that he can be quote elloquent (talking fancy) if he's amking fun of someone, or when staring down at his defeated opponent. ^_^
