Alright this my third attempt at Seiryuu's Yonko app and after a lot of thinking it over, I decided to take a different apporach at this. However, before I start, I will go over real quick what I am applying for:
Alright. I'll try to make this brief because the goal of this app is to not make it as long as last time and limit it to one form instead of two seprate ones. That is why I am going to a sort of "revising" app to go over all of the issues that was brought up. I felt like a good chunk of the app was passable but I needed to address the major concerns. I will do so in the following sections below as I know for certain things, that will mean changing a chunk of his backstory. I feel like this is easier to make sure I address the concerns while, at the same time, making sure I make the necessary changes to his backstory or other things. If you need a reminder of his power, fleet, all that other stuff, I'll be sure to link to his past app and tag all of his main pages to make sure you have a good reference. I'll also be making some changes here and there on those pages so they will fit with his new story. Okay then, onto the app itself!
Reworking His Backstory as a Noble and Other Things
Alright, this section will address a lot of questions as most of the issues that were brought up was mainly due to his backstory in general. That does make sense but I will lay out the issues first to have a good understanding.
The first main issue that was brought up was the whole issue with his parents being World Nobles and how his mother in particular was forced to step down to rule a different kingdom in it's place, only to go back to being a Noble later.
The second was that how was Seiryuu was able to have the muscle and power to escape from his captitvy for so many years and being able to launch a full-scale attack against the World Government.
And the third was the Mandara's status with the World Government itself if it's an affilate or not.
With these questions laid out, I will rework the backstory just below. Note it seemed like the main problem was pretty much the earlier parts of the backstory which is easier on me so I will just rework that part of it. If you still need a note of his other backstory, you can refer to his previous app which will be linked/tagged below.
Seiryuu was born into royalty as a World Noble alongside his father Angrboda D. Ryuaoi and his mother Malicia Azamuku. Ryuaoi himself was among one of the rare ones of the Angrboda Family bloodline that was born into noblitiy. He met his future wife, Malicia Azamuku, at one point and they had Seiryuu together. They lived as usual Nobles that often looked down at others but that was usually the case for Azamuku who enjoyed belitting the more common folk and wanted her son to follow in her footsteps. Ryuaoi, however, was a lot more noble and honorable despite being a Noble. He often wanted Seiryuu to be a strong leader rather than one that just expects others to do everything for him in his life. He would often try to train Seiryuu to be a strong king but often at odds with Azamuku. However, Ryuaoi would often try to find a middle ground with her which was why they remained together. They ruled over the Mandara Kingdom which was, at the time part of the Twenty Kingdoms of the World Government and would often have ties to the World Government despite Ryuaoi himself not agreeing with a lot of their principals.
Seiryuu appeared to be a prodigy when it comes to the Kazumorochi. It often takes one years to master just one fighting style but Seiryuu himself as able to master two of them in a span of one year. Ryuaoi, of course, knows this is because that Seiryuu was born a rareblood who always develop much more quicker than the regular Angrbodas. However, Seiryuu's development has been shown to go by even quicker than his own father's who is also a rareblood. As Seiryuu got older, his fighting style improved significantly to the point he started to help train his own friends himself. Seiryuu's friends are often other Angrbodas who aren't of the royal line but are still on good terms with him from his earlier childhood. For the most part of his childhood, his live was great. He had good friends, a loving father, and pretty much set for life. The only thing he didn't have was the love of his mother who often tells him she does love him but acts pretty distant about it.
Eventually, right around when Seiryuu turned 12, he was able to learn and master all of the Kazumorochi fighting styles. Seiryuu was praised throughout the kingdom for his strength saying he will indeed be fit to run the Mandara Kingdom in the future. Ryuaoi was especially proud saying that despite him not being able to age, he will be more than happy to step down from his throne to let Seiryuu run it if he should marry as well. Everyone decided to hold a party that lasted for two days and two nights. However, Azamaku didn't like how Ryuaoi and her own son for acting this way saying that that Nobles should view other non-Nobles beneath them instead of being friends with each other.
Azamaku eventually got into a huge argument with Ryuaoi where she disliked Ryuaoi spending time with the "commonders" and even raising their son to be a fighter instead of one that is supposed to behave as a Noble. However, Ryuaoi didn't believe that is the right way for royality to behave and that a ruler should be both strong and kind. They would argue for awhile until Ryuaoi put it to rest saying that as he, the Angrboda by blood, is the "true ruler" of the Mandara Kingdom as the Angrboda family and the World Government had ties to each other in the past, he has the final say untimely and walks off. Little does he know that this drives Azamaku over the edge and she begins to plot in the shadows.
Seiryuu and Ryuaoi were doing their daily training as usual. However, one day, they were ambused by the World Government agents where one of the higher ups of the Government itself were given a tip that they have done actions that was unbecoming of being Nobles. It was stated that they were caught transferring an "illegal drug" that raises the fighting potential of people which they tried to say is the explainaton for why Ryuaoi's forces are so strong in a short amount of time and that Seiryuu is in on it as he is the best example of this. Of course, Ryuaoi denies this until Azamaku herself presents the "pills" that were found in Ryuaoi's pants and it was later revealed Azamaku slipped the in there when he wasn't looking. Azamaku herself reveals herself as the tip saying that the Mandara Kingdom shouldn't be run by someone that takes shortcuts to strength which understandbly upsets Seiryuu and Ryuaoi though Ryuaoi himself takes it harder emotionally. Seiryuu and Ryuaoi where then sentence to becoming slaves for the World Government and the other World Nobles saying they could put that "fake strength" to good use at least. Seiryuu and Ryuaoi where then taken away with Seiryuu glaring at the smug Azamaku.
Hatred Against the World
The past decades, Seiryuu and Ryoaoi have been subjected to all kinds of slave work. Seiryuu was taken to a different area where he was forced to be a carrier for the Nobles and was constantly whipped and even burned at. He would get some that will feed him light meals but there will be the occasional "nicer" ones that will give him better meals to tie him down as he does often do a good job in their eyes. Ryuoai himself was being subjected to all kinds of experiments because of his Devil Fruit powers having bones taken from his own body and being hurt by them especially after being restrained with Sea Stone cuffs. Both of these two were going through this for 40 long years with both of their personalities permanently changed.
Seiryuu himself was burning with hatred for putting him through all of the pain and suffering. Ryuaoi, however, was completely broken. His eyes can be seen as completely blank and emotionless and barely reacted to any of his son's pleas. One day, the two were being held in a cell where they awaited more slave work and experiments. Seiryuu's hatred grew more and more each day especially after seeing the once high spirited Ryuaoi not say anything. Seiryuu was then handed over an actual more decent apple with the guard saying they were out of rotten ones and that one from the trash is good enough. Before Seiyruu could get it, his father spoke up for the first time in years.
Ryuaoi could still see the determination to live in his son's eyes. He then states that as carriers of the "Will of D." they were meant to oppose the Gods for years which is why things come to what they have. Seiryuu was, of course, confused by this and his father then explained when a Devil Fruit user dies, their Devil Fruit gets reincarnated to a nearby fruit. Seiryuu was upset wanting to know why his father suddenly say that and Ryuaoi simply tells him to live on. Ryuaoi then sharpens his own teeth and bites off his own tongue dying from the sheer amount of blood loss. Seiryuu was even more upset after witnessing his own father's suicide in front of him and cried for awhile before seeing the apple he had suddenly turned white with grey swirls and a bone-shaped leaf on top of it. Seiryuu then nods knowing what he was do and eats the Devil Fruit and finally inherited his father's will.
Seiryuu, after seeing for years how his father used his Devil Fruit powers, was able to easily use them to break out of his cell. Seiryuu knew that his father couldn't have broken out even if he wanted to thanks to the sea stone cuffs but Seiryuu was glad they didn't cuff him since he wasn't a Devil Fruit user. Seiryuu wanted to take his revenge against the Marines and his mother but knowing he has been subjected to slave work most of his life and only being fed that will keep him full for one day, Seiryuu decided to break out and regroup to rebuild back up his strength.
Seiryuu would lie in way building his strength back up for a few more years. He went into hiding because, of course, the World Government would've known of his escape by now with Azumagi demanding the find and recapture or kill him. Despite their efforts, the Marines could never locate him in time as Seiryuu had been hiding underground thanks the new intangiality of his powers. Seiryuu eventually made it back to the Mandara Kingdom and stormed the castle there where he found his mother who actually had adopted a new child by then. Seiryuu was upset at what his mother put him through and blames her for his father's death. Azamagi tries to defend herself saying that they should've just acted like "proper Nobles" and Seiryuu, even more upset at this point, kills her saying she doesn't deserve her life. Her adopted son runs off with Seiryuu allowing so since he doesn't really care bother with her and he takes her place in throne saying that his father wanted him to rule over the kingdom anyway.
However, this will lead to a rather large scale war between the World Government and Seiryuu with the Mandara Kingdom. Seiryuu would be recongized as the rightful ruler of the Mandara Kingdom but knows it being afflicated with the World Government he cannot rule it himself especially after having killed a World Noble even he was a Noble himself. Both Seiryuu's forces and the World Government would keep fighting until, eventually, Seiryuu would find himself overwhelmed by their massive forces and strength. Especially considering Seiryuu was still trying to build back up his own strength after being a slave for many years. Seiryuu, knowing that his own kingdom would be in shambles at this point, decided to go back into hiding allowing the World Government to chase after him leading them away from the Mandara Kingdom.
Centuries Long Crusade
However, it was too late for Seiryuu at this point. The World Government had already soured their relationship with the Mandara Kingdom due to Seiryuu's actions and decided to no longer afflicate with them. This in turn has caused the Mandara Kingdom to slowly fall into ruin especially with the World Government still trying to hunt down Seiryuu after he went into hiding again. Seiryuu was hiding out in a distant land training himself. He will then decide to gather up a small army of his own that was trained in his martial arts and eventually decided to challenge random Marines on a daily basis. This army did compose of people that opposed the World Government with some being pirates and others being ordinary people that would pass for Revolutionaries.
Seriyuu would then build up his army and, thanks to that his his Devil Fruit powers, was able to launch an attack on Mary Geoise. His goal was to, in his words, screw over the Nobles for being who they are (even though Seiryuu himself was one). Seiryuu was intending to kill off some more Nobles and even caused a lot of damage in the process. However, the World Government's much bigger forces started to overwhelm Seiryuu and he lost a lot of his own followers in the process. Seiryuu was forced to make a retreat before going back into the island to plan out his next moves even thinking of challenging the Marines over and over again.
This challenge happened for years and years, decades and decades. Eventually even centuries. Seiryuu was putting the full ability of his skills to the test as he constantly challenged the World Government. He would often get close at times but Seiryuu knew he was far from his goal of taking them down for good by himself. Seiryuu would challenge their Vice Admirals and even Admirals and would often get pushed back because of their numbers game. Whenever Seiryuu would find a place to rest up, the Government would think they he is resting at the Mandara Kingdom and continue to attack there for no reason. Knowing that he cannot allow his people to get hurt and knowing he would need a much more massive to confront the Government, Seiryuu decided to set up a plan to fake his own death.
Seiryuu then went to an unknown field where he dared the World Government to attack them with all the strength they got and even threatened to invade Mary Geoise once more. Giving in to his taunts, the Marines fired all they had at him with Seiryuu purposely taking the shots. While they weren't doing any lasting damage to him, Seiryuu was secretly putting his plans into motion. After the smoke cleared, Seiryuu's skeleton can be seen lying on the ground from all the fire and explosions and the pleased Marines decided to head off thinking they took down their biggest threat. However, it turns out with great control over his powers, Seiryuu made an actual skeleton in his place to trick the Marines until thinking he was fully dead. Seiryuu's death was soon broadcasted including to those in the Mandara Kingdom. It was at this point the Mandara Kingdom decided to rebuild themselves after electing a new king in their place as Seiryuu decided to wander the earth by his alsis Fumetasu.
And this that for his backstory! I did tried to make sure to address the concerns since most of it was part of his earlier backstory. If you want to refer back to the other half of his backstory/rise to power, please refer back to the last app that I will happily tag/link to. I felt the second half didn't need to be touched as Kami himself stated he liked how I addressed out Seiryuu got his top commanders to join him. Of course let me know if something doesn't add up!
Reworking Some of His Powers and Abilities
It has appeared that another problem was about certain aspects about his powers and how are things seem too much. I'll admit this is on me for not going over them when switching his app from a Revolutionary app to a Yonko one but I will be sure to go over them so there are no problems. Since the main problems of his last app came from his backstory and his abilities, this will be the last "beefy" section before I go into my last sections and that'll be it!
Alright, the problems with this section was brought up as followed:
His immortality/agelessness status
His Devil Fruit powers being worded as a "Paramecia with Logia Awakening"
His speed/agility against feats considered impossible.
I feel like this will be easier to cover than going through half of his backstory. I will first then say that Seiryuu is NOT immortal. Kami took it the wrong way from the previous app when he thought I wanted to give Seiryuu completely immortality which is not the case. I'm heavily against that aspect of a character myself. Seiryuu just doesn't age thanks to his Devil Fruit powers. He can still be killed and he can still be hurt. There is no one in the world that's invincible that was once said by our favorite Straw Hat leader himself. Trust me, that is not my apporach with him. I just wanted him to be one of the oldest living people in the world for pure experience factor. He's not stronger than anyone just because he has been around long enough. I just felt like this apporach is interesting because he will literally be calling most of the people he'll encounter in the current FC by "kiddish terms" like brat, sprout, pup, etc. I felt like that'll be an interesting character trait to him that is all.
And to address the second point that will also explain the first point, I have decided to make his Devil Fruit a Special Paramecia. That way, instead of being a man that just produces bones, he will be a man made of bones meaning he can still do the techniques he has earlier but now his whole body is a bone itself meaning he can shape himself anyway he sees fit. I can't believe I didn't think of this before and I am certain it being a Special Paramecia shouldn't be a problem. If certain Logias such as Ice (and techically snow) can be Logias with a solid base form, I don't see why that can't be the case with Kosshi as a Special Paramecia. Bones are pretty common things and they grow and get stronger as they grow/age. Since Seiryuu will be a living bone and can easily replace broken/old ones with new ones, I feel like, especially with his diet of high calcium foods/drinks, he can pretty much keep himself looking his age as much as he wants (pretty much like Brook). When he is changing forms, he will pretty much be like Hie and will reform himself as like crushed bones or an ash of bones since bones can be grouded down into bits. Of course, as I said above, this does NOT mean he is immortal. Just doesn't age. Can still be killed but will take a LOT of effort. I hope this will explain the issues with this and his Devil Fruit powers in general more.
Now, the third issue is easier because it was mainly Kami that brought it up before saying that will be near impossible to casually dodge lightning which I do agree with. Instead, I will say that he can move at superhuman speeds much faster than regular Soru users. This has been shown many times in the series with the best example being Katakuri being able to outpace Gear 2nd and even keep up with the MUCH faster Snakeman. Katakuri, of course, is considered near-Yonko level (as most of Big Mom's children do consider him a worthy successor to her compared to Peropero who is the oldest) so I feel like this wouldn't be a problem for someone who IS going to be Yonko level.
Seiryuu's Current Actions in the FC/Claiming Jail Island and Usage of Dyna Stones
I'll explain these two at the same time because they are pretty much go together in a sense of explaining the question. First off, Kami did said he would prefer Seiryuu was more involved in rps to help establish him mainly with other users. Fortunately, I have done a more recent rp with Berg where Seiryuu fought against White Fang. At the end of the day, the fight did stopped but it was clear White Fang was running out of steam and Seiryuu himself had plenty of energy to go. Of course, this was because of White Fang's age slowing him down and Seiryuu didn't even broke out his stronger moves/weapons. Though he did praised White Fang's strength before heading off back to his own objective. Their battle pretty much destroyed the entire mountainside close to the town with the town nearby still feeling the effects of their blows.
Now, I just wanted to go through that to show Seiryuu is involved in other rps that isn't just my own characters. I should explain more of what is Seiryuu currently doing in the events of the FC (meaning during the war) and why I want to claim Jail Island. Seiryuu himself is an opportunist and he will be using this war as a chance to get at Nitro who he knows is on the move. Seiryuu was able to trace Nitro to that very town in that rp but his fight with White Fang caused Nitro to be able to retreat. Seiryuu doesn't like that his own son made off with the crystal logia fruit and wanted to train with the Marines instead and has been trying to get him back ever sense. However, this missed opportunity caused Seiryuu to devise of a different plan.
Knowing that heavy forces of the Marines are busy with Kong and his crew, Seiryuu takes the time to reform with his massive fleet and target one of the Marines' largest islands, Jail Island. Seiryuu is attacking here for two reasons: One to claim the Dyna Stones for himself and to "take away something from the Marines in return." Seriyuu is a huge "an eye for an eye" person and the fact he lost his chance at Nitro again caused him to make this huge action. The Marines would be overwhelmed by the massive forces of Seiryuu's crew especially his army of skeletons, Liberators, etc. and of course his own crew and top enforcers of his three factions. Seriyuu, overall, had some resistance but was able to conquer Jail Island in the name of the Reaper Pirates. To ensure the Marines won't dare try to invade there easily again, Seiryuu would have some of his top fighters stationed on the island to prevent from attacks. Seiryuu will also visit regularly there to monitor things mainly the Dyna Stones. He will also have his own brand of Marines that will operate around the island under his rule (still thinking of the name).
Now to get on that subject, I want to explain that yes, I do want to use the Dyna Stones but they are going to be nerfed like crazy. The Dyna Stones in the series have been comparable to a freaking Ancient Weapon and one can easily wipe out an entire island. However, the Dyna Stones I plan on using won't be nearly as strong. If anything, they will be able to one shot an entire battleship or something a little greater. Breaking a whole battleship is considered a huge feat considering how big they are and they are of course going to be stronger than cannonballs. Seiryuu will be mainly using them with his forces but, as I said, the Dyna Stones aren't going to be as strong. They're going to be used for arrows, bombs, etc. and they won't be spammed like crazy that I promise. Let me know if I left anything else out regarding their usage!
And that is pretty much it for this app! I really hope I have addressed everything to the best of my ability. I know there were some questionable things last time but I made sure to go over through them this time. As a recap:
I rewritten his backstory to make it so that the Mandara Kingdom used to be an afflicate with the World Government years ago but Azamaku, who hated how her husband and son ended up acting, managed to set them up to get their status taken and became slaves. I'm sure this is fine as Azamaku was a Noble from the start so she didn't just lose her status alongside Ryuaoi and Seiryuu after getting them arrested. This sets up the usual backstory and Seiryuu was given better meals since he had "nicer" slave owners.
I changed his Devil Fruit powers to being a Special Paramecia as it will make tons more sense that if he was a living bone instead of being able to produce it from his body. He can keep all of his regular abilities the same but giving a better explaination for his agelessness (and NOT immortaility).
I made sure to mention what he is doing currently in the FC and even made sure he was in physical rps first. He also plans on capturing a major Marine island and he has a strong established army to be able to do that especially during the events of the war. I should say again that he doesn't hate nor like the other Yonko but he does respect their power since power is something he values heavily in a person. He'll never just randomly go after them unless they may have did something to set him off.
As I said, if you need a refresher of more of his personality, other abilities, etc., I will link/tag everything mainly to his past apps and his sub pages on the wiki itself as I only used this app to addressed the main concerns. Of course take account to the changes on this app vs. the older ones from the previous app since, of course, I can't change the content of those past apps. As always, please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!
