The Looks

The Personality
Ashford tends to be rather joyful in his mannerisms and speech. He can talk in the face of death  with a surprising amount of uncaring. This, however, can also be overshadowed by his rather dark demeanor, where he often becomes quiet and brooding. Often these two parts of him can mix and match, one can take over, the other might not appear for some time. His personality is sometimes hard to define, as his mentality isn't exactly the prime of him.

The Story
The world of New Hope was formed by three powerful beings known as the Time-lords, directed by a higher being, only known as a void walker, these beings created the world after it's previous destruction by a being only known as the Overlord. In this world, the time lords brought fourth magical races and powers to it's occupants to give them a fighting chance if there ever was another attack but they primed themselves as it's true protector, yet, there was one life, no one had accounted for.

Born in the city of Hope, Ashford never knew his parents and had to at a early age, survive on his own. It wasn't till he met Burrow, a Dwarf that lived the life of a treasure seeker, that he truly thought about his future, taken in by the dwarf, Ashford was taught the basic's of treasure seeking and it wasn't till a young adult that his life took a drastic turn no one saw. On the hunt for two Soul gems witch were said to be the souls of the time lords, Ashford and Burrow encountered a spirit who warned against them taking the two gems yet the two treasure seekers did not heed the warning. In retaliation the spirit summoned a skeletal figure who wore a coat as it's defender and sent the two after them, for it were not a stroke of luck and a torch of fire that vanquished the skeleton, Ashford and his friend might not have made it past that encounter. Yet rather then take the gems they had sought right away, Ashford was taken in by the coat that the skeleton had worn, one of a fantastic quality, Ashford pillaged the skeleton of the coat and wore it for himself yet found that while the coat had come a perfect fit, it became impossible for him to take off.

It was here, that the simple life of Ashford had been broken. He was never meant to be some hero. Never meant to do anything beyond seek treasure and die, as the coat was a dangerous being of immense power, that not even the void walkers could truly predict. Ashford and Burrow took the gems, giving them to the man that had asked for them, who was secretly a being filled with the presence of the Overlord, a Time lord intervened, but it was too late. With this, the world was thrown into a disarray with the dead rising and beings from the past reappearing, heroic and otherwise. Ashford, now with the coat, found himself a willing and unwilling solider in a war between the time lords and the Overlord, doing a great many deal of deeds that made his name known, both good and bad, before finally he finished the war by slaying the Overlord. Fixing his mistake, Ashford returned the two gems and was met with a note.

From here, his life was sent into a spiral, he met strange and exotic people, murdered them, made new friends and watched them die and lose themselves. Even his old friend Burrow couldn't stay with Ashford as his determination to be a hero grew. When a truce between the forces of the gone overlord and the forces of light was finally met, under strange circumstances, he felt only shame for all the lives he ended, for everyone that simply fought for there own reason, yet he stood in their way, a solider of light... A burner of lives. After this, he tried his best to only fight creatures or humanoids that threatened his existence or the ones of those he cared about, never willing to allow himself to be a puppet of war. Yet all the people he fought were scared in their own way and some were of his own fault. Like a girl named Nightmare that Ashford had found in a Ruins of old and released from a ancient cell, at first, Ashford grew close to the young girl known as Nightmare till he learnt that the reason she was locked away was for she was trying to kill people who had fragments of the Overlord in them, thinking that by doing so, she could kill the Overlord once and for all, and eventually she managed to kill some but unbeknownst to Ashford or Nightmare, the people she killed were key's, unlocking pieces of the being she wished to vanquish. Finally, when her sword was aimed on those who Ashford were close to, he was forced to confront and kill his new friend. Yet by killing one Nightmare, another appeared, her younger sister, this nightmare that had escaped from the void went on to try and finish what her newly deceased sister could not but over time Ashford had managed to capture her and immediately  tried to began to befriend the Nightmare, seeking to find redemption by saving her where he couldn't save her sister, yet was denied such when she gave him the Mark of the Chosen, a Mark that once transferred, kills the original host as she saw that with her goal was slowly dying due to her likening of the man more and more and seeing that the mark she carry's would benefit the chosen before her more so then herself. Crestfallen at the loss of his new friend, Ashford became very protective of those he knew, yet no matter how hard he tried, a force managed to take them away.

What was first thought were random killings was actually the spirit of the Overlord, who only Ashford could see at the time, they fought for brief moment before the spirit overpowered Ashford and forced him to Murder yet another one of his dangerously dropping Friends. Blamed for the murder, Ashford was taken and hung for a crime he didn't commit by yet another one of his friends. Now presumed dead to the world, The Overlord had found physical form and started a take over of the city of hope, yet in the slums, where the piles of the dead grew, Ashford rose from the pile alive once more. Unsure of how, he didn't care for as he climbed the dead, he saw the event's that grew. Brought on with new life, Ashford charged head first into the situation, and with the assistance of some very regretful allies, Ashford managed to defeat the Overlord at the loss of his arm, cut by a blade created to kill time-lord's, it couldn't be healed even by the coat, rather then let this slow down the chosen one, Ashford used his dagger of fire to cut off the sleeve of his coat so that a new technology know as a prosthetic could be attached to his arm, which once done, was reformed into a arm of the Fourth, a weapon said to be used by the original owner of the coat, a woman only known as Four. With the Overlord defeated once more, Ashford spent the next two years, during which he fell into a deep sleep that lasted a thousand years, fighting more and more, losing more and more till finally, he was ready to call it quits, he was done losing those he cared for, killing those who even with the best intentions at heart were a risk to the time lords, to humanity. He was tired, and he would have stopped if had not been for the return of a force that was thought defeated. Lucian, a being that was a predecessor to the Overlord.

And so, Ashford's final fight began, a battle that was never planned, nor ever thought to be. Now it wasn't a fight between a hero and the villain, it was a fight between a force that wanted to rule over a world and a man that simply wanted it to be over. And so the outcome was quick, Ashford was defeated yet some how he felt a sort of relief, he no longer had to lose more of himself to forces that controlled him, to people who relied too much on him. Yet death did not come, but rather evil delight. Lucian saw her opponent for who he truly was, and rather then execute the man that had foiled her plans for so long before his defeat, she took his most powerful weapon and cut a hole in the dimension before kicking him though it, and throwing the weapon after him, ending the only threat to her newly conquered city and now, world.

Now, Ashford awakes in this world, confused and bewildered, given a new life, a new chance.

The Priority

1. Agility 3
2. Endurance 2
3. Reaction 1
4. Strength 4

The Powers

Power 1: Enhanced Reflexes: Ashford has been using a sword for most of his late life, plus countless fights have made his reaction time much more acute and on time plus with the extra agility that comes from the coat, Ashford is able to easily dodge bullets at close range and even catch a multitude of thrown weapons if needed be.

Power 2: Rune Magic: During his life, Ashford came across a secret art known as soul rune magic, these runes are written in the air or by a more solid matter depending on what type of rune he is writing to cast spells of unique effect.

Power 3: Great with weapons(Mainly swords and daggers and his sword arm.): Ashford is almost a master when it comes to weapons in combat, Skilled in the art of combat and knowing of many techniques, he is a deadly combatant when armed with what he knows.

Power 4: A soulless body: Thanks to his coat, Ashford is able to sustain himself despite injuries that often would down or kill normal people. While he can still be killed, often the injuries need to be twice as dire to even slow him down and then kill him. Shattered bones and torn muscles can often be outright ignored for a time thanks to this, albeit painful.

The Weaknesses

Weakness 1: For all his skill in weaponry Ashford is Horrible at hand to hand combat, more a street brawler then a trained fighter.

Weakness 2: Ashford's head is filled with self doubt and pity. And Illusions or tricks of the mind are more likely to affect him then others. (No need for permission, they always work.)

Weakness 3: The runes Take time to write and can sap his energy if used frequently.  

Weakness 4: While he doesn't like to admit it, his left eye leaves him open to attacks from the left due to his inability to see from it.

Weakness 5: Fear of Fire: While not a Phobia, Ashford knows how dangerous fire is to him and is rather afraid of it touching him less it is controlled like his dagger, meaning he is more often then not to avoid going near fire or starting fires he can't control.

Rune Magic

Fire Bolt Rune: A symbol that when combined with the bolt rune, shoots a bolt of fire from the users hand, blasting or engulfing whatever it hits with fire.

Ice Bolt Rune: A Symbol that when combined with the Bolt Rune, Shoots a bolt of ice from the users hand, engulfing whatever the bolt hit's in ice.

Bolt Rune: When written over the Fire or Ice rune, the symbol vanishes and engulfs Ashfords hand in light, when he mentally wills it to fire, it fires where his hand is aiming.

Weakness: The bolt Rune writing over the ice or fire rune take time and in a fight one can find it hard to take the time to write two runes over each other. Also, when Ashford's hand is engulfed in light, any damage to the lightened hand will deactivate the rune while also, depending on the attack, can make it unable to cast any more runes, can't cast with a mangled hand. Which is note, it is obvious when Ashford is using magic as his left hand will glow under the bandages and glove, signaling the spell is ready.

The Items

The gemmed weapons:
The Dagger of the red gem: A dagger in size with a red gem attached to it's hilt, This Dagger is of unique quality in which it lights ablaze, from the tip of the blade base of the blade, licking at the hilt.

Weakness: Throwing dirt anywhere on the blade deactivates the flames, even so much as the blade itself hitting a dirt ground is enough to stop it's flames. He also can't wield it in his left hand, well he can but it hurts a lot to do, with the flames too close and too hot for his scarred hand.

The Necklace of the Purple Gem: A necklace with a single slot, which holds a purple like gem, The Necklace when worn allows Ashford to cast his runes Much more easily then the normal person, it could be the only reason he is able to cast runes in this world.

Weakness: Remove the necklace, Remove Ashfords ability to cast runes.

The Glove of the yellow Gem: A Worn Leather glove that has a yellow gem attacked to it, This glove can when aimed at a attacking force, creates a shield like Orb of negative energy that catch's any and all attacks of energy. magic or elemental type. Destroying the attacking force often.

Weakness: The gem was cracked during Ashfords adventures, nulling it's ability to stop Kinetic like attacks such as fist or cars from being stopped by the shield, they pass though like it is nothing.

The coat of the Fourth: A dangerous and powerful coat, it is unbreakable and gives Ashford ability's that allow him to survive fights ordinary people would not. such as Ashford's reflexes and agility have been increased by the coat, he is able to see into the past life of the dead. (Permission and rp) It is also attached to his body, only able to be removed when it gives permission. it also won't allow him to die, if he does indeed die, then it will bring him back as he was when he put the coat on. He is also sustained by the coat, able to take injury's but walk it off almost like nothing happened, A sort of pain inhibitor.

Weakness: The coat is very powerful, but fire can paralyze whatever it touches, and even cut though the Fabric of the coat, if his entire body was coated in fire, then Ashford would not be able to move at all. Also, while the coat is unbreakable, what is under isn't. He can take bullets, stabs wounds, broken bones and keep walking but his body will collapse if it takes too much or a direct organ such as the heart collapses or is destroyed/damaged..   not only that, his chest and legs are unguarded by the coat, so is his hands, allowing them to be damaged by normal methods.

The Black Rapier: A Rapier as indestructible as the coat and just as dangerous, It can cut though almost anything with relative ease, it is capable of completely killing the  beings of any world that would consider themselves completely immortal to death, as the weapon defies that by taking all that makes that being something, and adsorbing it. Trapping the being inside of it when it is used to strike a being in what would be considered a 'killing.' strike. (Permission based.)

Weakness: The rapier has one eternal weakness, Ashford can't kill a living being with it as not only does it kill the unkillable, it also kills the killer in the same method. To kill with the rapier, is to be sure that what you killed is dead, but it is also a sacrifice that must be made by the killer, and not even the coat can bring him back from the rapier, thus making it a weapon he rarely uses.

Heavenly metal arm/ The arm of Four: Ashford's right arm is made out of a magical metal called Heavenly metal, which was the strongest metal in his realm, and the sharpest. In contrast, it looks like a real arm if not for the sleek design and the black metallic color. On the ends of the fingers claw like talons that can retract and pop out when ready to cut apart any flesh or metal he wishes to cut. The arm is strong enough to cut and smash though the hardest of metals and the combined with the sharp drill's allows him to use his own arm as a deadly sword.

Weakness: Ashford tends to forget his hand is made of metal sometimes or that it has blades for finger tips, or that he can't cast runes with his right hand.  It is also susceptible to ice, cooling the arm down will make it brittle and the able to be destroyed easily.

The fatal Bite: A dagger fused with flesh and bone of a demon, it has a outer shell that, when the flesh is pressured in a certain area, the spine that is the blade extends, it extends into a long sword of similar visage. Along with that, it has a series of runes etched into the blade, seen only when extended.

Item Power(s): The bite is a highly durable and sharp dagger that can extend into a long sword. It has a series of runes that, when Ashford swings the blade with the magic of his soul runes grafted into his hand, the blade takes that element, and at his will or more, when the blade goes from long to short, will give out a pulse of said magic around him, ice, fire or wind.

Weakness: If a substance gets into the mechanism of the sword, it will be unable to shift between it's two settings, leaving Ashford with only one weapon and no tricks. Otherwise, he can not use the rune magic when the sword is only a dagger.

The Fluff
. His Coat has no alive regeneration but rather a much, Much faster healing rate then the average human who is resting, meaning no lying down, no unnatural, natural healing, this also applies to his robotic arm when it is destroyed (And itself if cut by fiery objects) .

To Ashford death isn't final, Once dead, the coat will regenerate him till he comes back to life like he was before.(Rp Reason for not dying.)

Rune of the chosen. A rune written on Ashford's Back, benefits Ashford in no way but stopping the coat from becoming a threat to human existence, It also Soul Bounds all of Ashfords items to him, he owns them, if they are taken, he will find that in a few days they return to him magically, with whoever took it often finding themselves misplacing the item in question somehow. (Rp reason as to him not getting his items stolen by big bad power bullies.).

The Rapier leaves a blue like trail behind where the tip of the blade is (It is basically trying to cut the world's fabric apart.) So it could allow it's wielder to travel between dimensions. (which he can't do, fyi.)
