Inner Thoughts Bound By Reality
Rozeluxe Meitzen, often called Raze for short, is the former Guild Master of the rookie Phoenix Feather Guild, that he himself started in order to find, recruit and train various mages with high potential. Sometime after establishing the Guild, Rozeluxe met and later married Suri Meitzen before retiring as Guild Master in order to join the Rune Knights.
AppearanceEditRozeluxe looks like a human in his late teenage years, much like the other young mages. He tends to wear a long red cloak over a hazy blue kimono. The two are tied together by a red sash strung with pearls dyed purple from being soaked in a bath of flowers. Over his shoulder one can usually find the pelt of a three-eyed kitsune, that he defeated as a child. Around his wrists, Rozeluxe wears several layers of bandages covered by blue bracers and series of demonic orbs, that take the form of a small beads.
Rozeluxe's hair is long and protrudes from the back of his head with the top half of his hair being white and the bottom half of his hair being a dark black. He also has narrow red eyes as well as an unusual set of sharp canines that seem to grow in unison with his rising emotions. This trait was noted by a stranger who passed him during a trip through town, to give Rozeluxe "A Oni looking face with a demonic aura capable of striking fear in even the bravest of hearts". Throughout the streets of various cities that he visits, Van is considered to be one of the most approachable citizens due to his carefree demeanor.
PersonalityEditRaze is the type of guy that can make friends with everyone, and, if not friendship, at least respect. Even those like Erza Scarlet has shown interest in Raze's battles. However though, Rozeluxe can become angry when his friends are hurt or injured, But he is also willing to sacrifice those that are important to him as he is willing to make the painful decision to leave them behind when he needs to get the job done. Despite his easygoing personality, Rozeluxe has shown that he has hidden talent as a skilled mage being capable of using his dragon slayer magic to defeat a group of bandits from a well known guild with relative ease.
In combat situations, he seems fairly deceptive. He will often downplay his own abilities so that he can shock a target later on with his true nature. At one point, he even told a low level mage that he was the New leader of several guilds, something that terrified the young mage enough to allow Rozeluxe to defeat him with ease. He is highly confident in his abilities. Rarely do taunts such as those often spoken by any of his opponents faze him. He has the unnatural trait to tell only the truth about his abilities once he finally decides to reveal them to his foes, something that seems to unnerve most of whom he faces. He is also not one to downplay the role of death in a anyone's life span. At one point stating that one who is in fear of death is the one most in need of it.
A slacker by nature, Razeluxe maintains a carefree, laid-back attitude about everything, even with achieving his goal of becoming a superior mage. When others are stressed out or in a panic, Raze usually just mutters 'everything will work out' as a way of seeing things. He is also confident, strong and inspires courage amongst his allies, leading many to join him. While normally calm, reserved and in control, Raze can exhibit merciless conviction when in the presence of anyone whose beliefs challenge his, making him very dangerous once provoked. He also has a soft spot for others, and can be quite emotional at times. Above all else, Raze is an honor-bound man, and when he feels indebted to someone, he will go out of his way to repay that debt, even if this goes against his own personal best interest.
Despite being a laid-back person, Rozeluxe loves adventure and the glorious art of combat, and is incapable of stepping back from a challenge no matter how dangerous or difficult it maybe. This part of his natures oftentimes causes him not to avoid taking the easy way out. Despite having a great sense of caution, he will continue as his sense of caution only makes the situation more thrilling. He has been known to smile in the faces of both danger and death. When it comes to actual combat, Raze's confidence comes shine, making smart-mouth comments and slightly arrogant exclaims. Though this is actually just a well-hidden attempt to disrupt his opponent's combative mindset. He also has a habit of having joyful tone in his voice whenever he combats a strong opponent due to wanting a challenge that will make him stronger at the end of it. The habit seems anger both his friends and foe alike, believing that he isn't taking their fight seriously.
EquipmentEditSword: Raze's signature weapon, this is a long katana-like blade with a long black chain attached to the hilt. This results in not limiting the sword to solely short range attacks but allows it to also function as a blade-whip. By adding more magical energy to this weapon it can increase the cutting edge of this blade and Rozeluxe can also use the loose magical energy given off by an opponent's techniques to increase the strength of this blade.
Dimensional Cloak: This is a cloak that can be used for camouflage and invisibility purposes. While underneath the cloak, Raze is in another plane of reality which also hides any trace of his magical energy from his foes. The second reality Rozeluxe has entered mirrors the "main" one as to allow him to surprise his enemy or even leave the battlefield altogether. Aside from stealth and travel, Raze's cloak has other clever uses, such as absorbing enemy attacks or catching someone who is falling in midair.
Magic And AbilitiesEditLarge Magical Energy: Raze possesses a large amount of magical energy. The magnitude of his magical energy is impressive, as it is capable of causing the earth to tremble around him. His quantity of magical power allows him, to be capable of fighting for incredibly long periods of time without stopping, and rarely becomes fatigued. When only a portion of it released, it is enough to crack the Earth around him but upon completely releasing his spiritual energy, a wave of energy is sent from around Raze, crystallizing the landscape around him and his opponents granting him ample ammunition in order to battle his opponents.
Enhanced Strength: Raze has shown massive amounts of strength. He is capable of injuring an opponent greatly with his bare hands and has been able to stop the punch of an opponent with his own. He is quite capable of punching through boulders with his bare hands or use devastating punches to rupture internal organs.
Enhanced Agility: Rozeluxe has been observed leaping great heights and distances. His fast reflexes and athletically conditioned body give him a natural advantage on the field of battle as he is shown to be able to dodge reckless fire from a Magic spells.Expert Swordsmanship Specialist: Rozeluxe has demonstrated tremendous skill in swordsmanship, being able to fight on even grounds with Kujina Akiha, a master swordswoman in her own right. Raze has shown himself to be highly proficient in swordsmanship, as he was capable of using a borrowed sword from a stall on the side of the road in order to dispatch a group of bandits with relative ease. He will only use his swordsmanship skills when he faces off against a much tougher opponent with a drawn weapon or as a last resort due. Raze is also quite adept at blocking with his blade as he is ambidextrous and can switch off his swords from his right hand to his left and vice-versa allowing him to catch an opponent off-guard.
- Samidare (五月雨, Early Summer Rain): The user holds their sword in one hand and slashes at their opponent, but instead of actually attacking, pulls off a feint. Meanwhile, the actual katana is falling to the user's other hand to create a genuine slash after the intended target is caught off guard attempting to dodge the first feint attack.
Enhanced Eyesight: His vision is increased to the point that he sees objects and phenomena around him moving at a much slower pace than they actual are. Not only this but he can also see his opponent's loopholes in their body created when blood circulates. Muscles in the body retract and cells alter, resulting in the creation of these points. These are spots which move along with the body's movements. When one of these points are hit, even with the slightest attack, the resulting pain can prove fatal to the targeted individual. With each successful power blow to a one of these points, the affected spot will grow larger, a possible side-effect caused by blood-clotting, eventually turning the opponent's whole body into a single one of these points.
Keen Intellect: Raze possesses a large amount of intelligence, gained from his love of knowledge about Magical History. He constantly shows himself to be very intelligent in combat, coming up with very complex, organized plans and strategies in order to defeat opponents. He is very adept at finding and exploiting weaknesses in his opponents' techniques. He is also adept at adjusting to his opponent's attack patterns and battle methods to better counter them. Rozeluxe is capable of quickly adjusting to new developments and making quick decisions accordingly. He is a very perceptive man, even as far as figuring out the opponent's next possible moves before they had a chance to utilize it. Rozeluxe retains seriousness and will analyze his opponent's skills and abilities in order to devise a winning strategy. Hand in hand with Raze's cunning are his immediate reaction and assessment skills. He can easily find the most advantageous move for himself to make allowing for him to exploit an oopponents weakness. Rozeluxe has shown himself to be very insightful and perceptive. He is a highly perceptive fighter, being able to almost immediately determine an opponent's attack patterns and weaknesses. He can discern the motives and abilities of his opponents. He is also understanding of people's emotions by their thoughts and actions, which allows him to toy with his opponent's emotions in the midst of combat.
- Cunning: Rozeluxe is a sharp person, and very cunning. He even adopts a faux persona about him when meeting strangers in order to fool any potential opponents. Raze is also a crafty tactician, as demonstrated from how effectively he uses his Magic to confuse his opponents. He has even expressed high awareness and understanding of his surroundings, which is exploited in his fighting style as he has shown great skill in using his surroundings to his advantages.
Highly Perceptive Combatant: Raze is a highly perceptive combatant. He is able to notice even the slightest changes in an opponent's magical energy level. He is also able to analyze an opponent to accurately gauge their combat strength before entering combat as well as being capable of seeing through illusions or seeing things that would not normally be discernible through normal means.
An after-image magic that allows Rozeluxe to catch many opponents off-guard. This magic envelops Rozeluxe in a wispy black smoke that clouds him from his opponent's vision. He is then able to shift himself into the opponent's blind spot in order to strike swiftly and silently. While utilizing this technique, Raze has shown that attacks will phase right through him. While not yet completely under his control, Raze has been shown to be able to use this technique to protect others that are in a close proximity to him, demonstrated when he protected Yuuma from one of Sango's wayward attacks. The smoke-like vapors produced by this technique has a debilitating effect on those that Raze does not consider his ally. 'Enemies' caught in the wispy smoke will begin feeling a tranquil effect on their body, effectively causing their bodily functions to begin slowing. There is no known way to avoid this effect upon this technique's activation as the smoke will continue to exude from Rozeluxe's body, giving him an almost impenetrable defense.
Once activated, Inner Thoughts Bound By Reality, through the use of the Meitzen Glove, allows Rozeluxe to produce illusions and then project those very illusions into reality. This magic works by the Meitzen Glove probing Raze's desires and begins forming it into an illusion. From there, Rozeluce will then start to gather Magical Energy from the surrounding area and solidify the illusion into a solid point of existence. The illusions created by Raze and this magic cannot be destroyed by those who can simply break free from hypnosis, as they are now just as much a part of the real world as the air we breathe; because they are not simply being forced into the target's mind, but brought into reality. The illusions are so well crafted that they even have the capability to scare an opponent to death. By drawing upon and warping the mind's processes to the point of strongly desiring to satisfy it regardless of what may happen, Rozeluxe can remove the thoughts and feelings, as well as the senses, of an opponent.
- Appearance of Fear (恐れ気, Osorege): Once the opponent has been subjected to Rozeluxe's Magical Energy, he is free to access their subconsciousness and everything from their deepest desires, to their darkest fears, to their earliest memories are accessible to Rozeluxe. With his magicu, Rozeluxe can physically manifest the opponent's thoughts and memories, and controls the physical manifestations of these thoughts and memories, making them do what he orders it to do.
- Endless Moon Dream (無限月夢, Mugetsumu): With this spell, Rozeluxe is able to use his magic to create an illusionary world, around him and his opponent that is free for him to control. Depending on the opponent, Rozeluxe will either torture his target or make them relive a traumatic experience from their life once more. Despite being able to become consciously aware of their situation and act differently, the victim is unable to significantly alter or escape from the inevitable progression of these events. When the spell ends, the resultant psychological trauma will render the target unable to fight and possibly cause a complete mental breakdown. While it only takes a few seconds to complete in the real world, Rozeluxe can make it seem as if days have passed for the target.
