" When the opportunity rises, when it's life and death, there is no such thing as pride amongst us. We live purely for ourselves. Whatever it takes to survive, we will do it."

Orion
Source:
DBZ Alternate Universe (OC)
Sex: Male
Species: Saiyan
Age: 48 (looks mid 30's)
Height: 6' 3"
Occupation: Mercenary
Total Essence Spent: 11,950​

Appearance
Orion is tall and muscular with a confident stance. He wears black body armour with a silver pattern near the neck, mustard yellow pants and blue boots that go up to the knees. He wears a blue and gold robe with ornate patterns over the top, using a golden chain to hold it closed. He wears fingerless glovers with silver scaled plate bracers and spaulders. An eyepatch covers his robotic eye. He has a moustache and thin beard that follows chin and jawline and little else. He has a brown, furry tail that is often hidden by his robe.

Character Behavior
Jaded Warrior – Orion’s life has been full of deceit, betrayal and loss. While he tries his best to focus on the positives (unlike many of his race), the cumulative toll it has taken on him has been exacting. He is gruff, cold and generally impersonal. There is more to him than this, but this is what the world will see of him. If there’s one thing Orion knows, it’s combat. He has fought ever since he was a child and decades of battling and subsequent survival have taught him many hard-won lessons. Fighting is a part of him and he takes it very seriously. He is powerful, analytical and confident when fighting and won’t back down from a challenge. As such, he knows how to 'read' his opponent. He can tell much from stance, eye contact, facial expression, and much more. He uses this information to guide himself in battle and work out flaws in his opponent's fighting style.

In many ways, Orion is the stereotypical saiyan warrior. He is strong, confident in his abilities and always itching for a fight. He is not arrogant, unless around other saiyans. He can sometimes seem cold and distant, and finds it hard to trust others. Although it appears that he forces himself to do it, Orion will step in to save a stranger from injustice. Orion is different from his people in many ways, however. He is intelligent and somewhat philosophical, assessing situations with far more thought than a normal saiyan. He rarely shows this on the outside, hiding it behind his species' arrogant bravado. He also has a tendency to steal unofficial leadership when placed into a group.

Combat
Orion's combat style is largely about hitting the opponent harder than they can hit him, once an opening has been discovered - this often works, as he puts out a mammoth amount of power even in basic punches and can take quite a lot of punishment himself. Yet he is a seasoned warrior, and he has seen countless battles over countless worlds. As such, he knows how to 'read' his opponent. He can tell much from stance, eye contact, facial expression, and much more. He uses this information to guide himself in battle and work out flaws in his opponent's fighting style.

History
Orion is from an alternate DBZ reality where Frieza never wiped out the Planet Vegeta. A saiyan, Orion was experimented on by the Cold Empire, where an experimental computerized unit called NOVA was installed inside his head. He escaped his prison with the help of allies and almost began a new life on a new world until he was hunted down and his new friends killed. After many years since that event and many adventures, Orion hunts for those responsible with his AI companion Tristelle, and his search brings him to the Crossroads.

NOVA Unit
During the years of experimentation he endured by the Cold Empire, Orion had a sophisticated module installed into the left side of his skull, known as a NOVA (Neural Occular Virtual Attachment) unit. It replaces the side of his brain that he lost during the battle on Serin and keeps him alive while adding much more functionality. Behind his eyepatch is a red, circular lens which he is capable of seeing through but rarely chooses to, nor does he expose it. It can track ki signatures, dragon balls and has a Q-Wave communicator (the transmissions can be sent/received via thought or sound). It also can house AIs and store data. It has been alluded that there is still further upgrades that are possible.

The ultimate purpose of the NOVA unit is still a mystery to him.

Relationships
During Orion's volunteer work when battling against Cevanti's Unmade, he has submitted to the authority of Lieutenant Colonel Roy Mustang. Though Roy can be cheeky at times, Orion respects his military acumen and appreciates that same respect mirrored back to him. More than anyone else he has met in the Crossroads, Orion trusts him.
A one-time subordinate during the raid on Saren's compound, Chara shows wisdom and maturity beyond her years. Orion recognises her battle prowess and her perceptiveness, especially after trying to warn the Saiyan of Darkseid's subtle influence that he was ignoring. A valued ally.
A one-time subordinate during the raid on Saren's compound, Nico proved to be a chaotic and capricious soldier. While both he and his powers were unconventional, he proved himself that he could follow orders and achieve results when it came to the crunch. Orion would probably prefer to avoid working with him so closely again simply due to personality clashes, but he acknowledges his power and willingness to battle the Unmade.

Miscellaneous
- Orion's NOVA unit is capable of storing data files and AIs in much the same way a computerised device would.
- He once travelled with an AI named Tristelle, but they have since parted ways. She is now working with Kitriana Wilde (see Shadow of the Colossus Quest, The Chorus' first post)
- Orion is very protective about his eyepatch and will not take jokes about removing it well. If anyone is successful, prepare for his wrath.
- When in a serious, heated fight, Orion will throw off his robe to avoid damage to it. This will also expose his tail.
- While some lower-class saiyans can be paralysed by having their tail grabbed, Orion is not one of them.
- Orion hates anyone involved with or supporting Frieza, his family and his empire.

Abilities
Damage 7 (700)
Total: 700
Description: Orion's basic melee attacks overwhelm most adversaries defenses.

Move Object 7 (700)
+ Ongoing (0)
Total: 700
Description: Lifting heavy objects is part and parcel of Orion's power.

Protection 7 (700)
+ Ongoing (0)
Total: 700
Description: A combination of his armour and ki infusion heighten the punishment Orion can receive without major injury.

Endurance 4 (400)
Adaptation: Falling (100)
Total: 500
Description: Outrageously fit and impervious to long walks off short piers.

Flight 3 (600)
+ Ongoing (0)
Total: 600
Description: Orion can manipulate his inner energy to fly.

Damage 5 (500)
+ Ranged (250)
Total: 750
Description: Calling his ki, Orion forms orbs of energy in his hands and fires them at targets whereupon they explode, dealing damage.

Damage 7 (700)
+ Ongoing (0)
+ Ranged (350)
- Concentration (350)
Total: 700
Descripton: Orion forms his ki into a streaming column of energy to attack his targets. The beam deals damage on impact and Orion can continue the attack as long as he pumps energy into it. However while maintaining the beam, he must concentrate. Upon ending the ki beam, a small explosion occurs (this is just for visual flair and does not increase the effective radius of the attack). It can be fired from either his hands or his mouth.

Move Object 6 (600)
+ Ranged (300)
Total: 900
Descripton: By distilling ki quickly and without form, Orion can launch an invisible blast of force, accompanied by a shout of exertion, at a target to knock them over or off balance. Lighter objects (or those without a defense to it) can be blown away. This is traditionally fired by punching or thrusting an open palm at the target, but strictly speaking no movement is required to launch it.

Move Object 6 (600)
+ Ongoing (0)
+ Affects Multiple 1 (300)
- Indiscriminate (300)
Total: 600
Descripton: Much like Kiai, Orion expels waves of invisible ki while shouting to knock over targets or simply blow them away. In this variation, the effects of the shockwave impact anything around him in 20 feet, and he can sustain it as long as he has stamina. During times of seriousness or rage, Orion is known to perform the Kiai Explosion while raising his battle power.

Sense 1: Extrasensory (100)
+ Ongoing (0)
- Limited (only works on living beings) (50)
Descripton: Orion can sense the ki of any living thing within a certain vicinity. If the creature is an artificial construct (eg. robot, android, golem) or undead, Orion can’t sense them.

Teleport 4 (1200)
- Limited (can only use in conjunction with Ki Sense) (200)
Total: 1000
Description: One of the unlocked techniques previously hidden in his NOVA databank, Orion can teleport short distances. He generally uses this during close quarters battle to evade attacks and approach an enemy from a surprising, abrupt angle. However to do so, there must be a target for his Ki Sense to lock onto, otherwise it cannot be used.

Mimic 4 (up to 800E) (1600)
+ Ongoing (0)
+ Ranged (200)
Total: 1800
Description: After an upgrade to his NOVA unit, Orion can scan someone and temporarily perform all of the target’s Abilities they possess expertly, as long as it falls within the power limitations of Replicate. The scan does not require physical proximity and the replication lasts until the end of the battle.

Communication 1 (100)
Total: 100
Description: Through Orion's NOVA unit, he can send communications using either sound or his thoughts.

Shapeshifting: One Form (1000)
- Activation: 10 seconds (50)
Growth 5 (1000)
+ Ongoing (0)
- Activation: 10 seconds (250)
- Side Effect (Big target) (250)
Senses 2 (Hearing) (200)
+ Ongoing (0)
Total: 1650
Description: One of the Saiyans’ signature abilities, Orion is capable of transforming into a fifty-foot tall Great Ape, a huge monkey with brown fur and red eyes. His NOVA unit can induce the transformation, eliminating the need for a moon, which takes 10 seconds to complete. He will take off his robe and eyepatch to avoid destroying them but the rest of his outfit expands with him. He is capable of reason and speech while transformed, and has excellent hearing.

Healing 4 (800)
+Self/Other (100)
-Finite (3 uses) (200)
-Removable (200)
Total: 500
Descripton: Orion carries a pouch of Senzu beans within his robe. These incredible legumes can heal astonishing injuries just by being consumed, and the restoration is immediate. Anyone can take advantage of this boon, should he choose to share a Senzu. However the value of these Senzus means Orion only keeps three on his person at any one time, and once he runs out he has to retrieve more from his starship, where he grows them. The Senzu beans and pouch can also be forcibly removed from him.

Master Skills
Knowledge (Combat Tactics) 7
Total: 350
Description: Decades of combat experience combined with an innate understanding of the art of battle has made Orion a skilled and formidable warrior. He understands the flow of a fight and uses that knowledge to enhance his battle technique.

Knowledge (Military Tactics) 7
Total: 350
Descripton: Orion's life has been dedicated to battle and war. He collected vast experience on military tactics during his tenure as leader of his five-man Saiyan squad, and as a General of the Tuffle Armed Forces during a war where he fought an entire Cold Empire army with a small, guerilla-style force. He is both an excellent military adviser and leader.

Multerra History

Crash Landing
After unlocking the full suite of features in his NOVA unit with the aid of Shenron, Orion escapes the planet Arlia to find himself through a wormhole. He crashes into Cevanti, where he decides to stay while he heals.

An Arbiter's Rage [Quest]
While awaking in his apartment, Orion is besieged by an unknown telepathic communication. It somehow, without words, informs him that it is the planet's creator and it's in dire need of assistance. After dispatching some of the Unmade, Orion headed to the heart of where he believed the infection festered.

The Siege of Markov [Unmaking]
Orion arrived and offered his fighting prowess to Roy Mustang, the leader of the force striking back against a massing of Unmade creatures attacking Cevanti in a co-ordinated effort.

Shadow of the Colossus [Quest]
Desperate for credits to purchase a new starship and leave Cevanti, Orion takes a mercenary job from Kitriana Wilde, a researcher into The End. She also hires another rude, unpleasant bodyguard named John X, who brings with him his own platoon. Their job is to protect Kitriana while she explores a rumour that may lead her to knowledge of COLOSSUS-X9, a giant robot constructed during The End.

Plans go awry. John X's team is swallowed by a massive metal worm, but Orion manages to repel it. Tristelle, Orion's AI housed in his NOVA unit, suddenly vanishes. Finding an invisible village, they speak with Leon, who claims to know of a site of significance to The End. When they arrive, Orion pairs with Kitriana to enter a rusted underground facility, with John X guarding the door. They are ambushed by hundreds of sentient computer chips and barely escape. However, one of the chips snagged Kitriana and burrowed into her neck, controlling her mind. She leaves with Leon, while John X stops Orion from pursuing.

John X explains that the chips are creations of COLOSSUS-X9. These chips take control of living organisms and uses them for its own purposes, John X being one of them. Orion battles and kills John X. However, one of the chips infests Orion. He heeds the chip's commands to arrive at a huge quarry, where hundreds of other people are digging into the earth.

Still under mind control, Orion encounters Kitriana, and they travel to the base of the quarry. She unveils COLOSSUS-X9 - or the top part of its head - saying that it had been buried for eons and needed to enslave those alive today to dig it out. Through Kitriana's technical knowledge and Orion's power, they resurrect the massive mecha.

The mind control breaks as a hidden protocol left by Tristelle frees Orion. He quickly tears the chip off Kitriana's neck and they flee before COLOSSUS-X9, its true identity The Chorus, destroys the quarry. Orion engages the The Chorus in battle in his transformed Great Ape state and scores some damage early. However, thanks to Tristelle, who Orion learns has been turned by The Chorus, the robot knows to remove Orion's tail to end the transformation, which it does.

Enraged beyond reason, Orion maintains the Great Ape power while staying in his humanoid form, and heedlessly attacks. He obliterates the giant worm that Tristelle has piloted, effectively killing her. His pure fury and heightened strength allow him to penetrate The Chorus' head, dislodging its data core and shutting the entire thing down. Lost in anger, Orion almost destroys the data core, but Tristelle pleads with him to spare it, saying that it holds all the information she has been looking for. Orion obeys, but with rage no longer sustaining him, he collapses.

Finding a weathered hovercar, they head back to Markov, Orion silent the entire trip. A pack of Unmade parademons descend on them. Orion brutally dispatches them and they return to Kitriana's laboratory. She pays him, and Orion, still quietly simmering with fury, sets his sights on a new target - the Unmade.

Prelude to War: Chasing Spectres [Some Kinda Suicide Squad - Quest]
Orion joined forces with Roy Mustang once again, along with Chara Dreemur, Nico Cinder, Ashe-0, Hiro, Baymax, Asriel Dreemur, Hawkeye, and a number of brave soldiers to infiltrate and eliminate Saren, one of the Fade's Unmade generals.

Death Game Season 3: Spectator Central
While having a drink in a bar, Orion spots The Chorus as a participant in Death Game Season 3. Having thought the murderous AIs were safely under control with Kitriana, he calls her to find out what's going on.

Sins of the Past
During a battle with parademons, Orion suffers a debilitating headache that momentarily stuns him. A mysterious stranger, Tenso, contacts him out of the blue to discuss his NOVA unit...

Vendetta [NPC]
Cabbis, a Saiyan under the employ of Alastor, is sent to Cevanti to investigate a strange 'anomaly.' What he finds will change everything...
