Prince Lemmy

"I'm a beautiful mermaid"

Mermaid // Unknown // Male
Shadow, Water // Mertopia // Low Neutral
(IMG:http://i.imgur.com/qDkicbg.png)

Height: 5' 11"

Weight: 175 lbs.

Figure/Build: Strong upper body strength that pales in comparison to the fact that he's riding a giant fin. Kind of a thing that stands out, that.

Hair: Greenish blue

Eyes: Red

Skin: Scaly. Varying shades of blue, from head to fin.

note - he once possessed a more humanoid form with which he interacted with landlubbers in times long past, but has since returned to his natural state.

Job: Formerly prince and de-facto ruler of Mertopia; presently prince and de-facto ruler of Mertopia, now with 400% more shadowgotens.

In one alternate future, the shadow element has overwhelmed him to an extent that he becomes Lord of All Lands to defend Mertopia from two-leggers by means of conquest.

Favorite Color: The deep shadowed purple of a shadowgoten

In the dystopian future, where he rules, his alignment is High Law. His element is Shadow, though originally Water; he maintains use of Water abilities beneath a Shadow focus. The tale of how this transition came to be is further detailed in "A Beautiful Biography: Lore of the Lemmy".

Province: The nation of Mertopia, an underwater society where the mermaid ways are mysterious and paramount.

For more information on Mertopia and the mermaid ways, please consult "Mertopia: A Collective History as Written from the Perspective of a True Fin".

Prologue: Long ago, the undersea country of Mertopia became united under a prince of considerable lore who became known to the histories as the Beautiful Mermaid. A skilled water master, the prince used his powers fairly but forcefully in defending his borders from the many aggressors who sought to mine Mertopia for resources as well as loot the vast sunken fortunes of gold and other precious metals that had accumulated on the sea bottom over eons.

Though he was a popular figure among his own kind, the prince's stubbornness created enemies for him on the two-legged surface worlds. Most notably the territories that would ultimately band together to become the first Blood Country, who would routinely plunder Mertopia's lost treasures to fund their expansions into other territories and occasional infighting, become an oppressive regime of powers versus the isolationist Mertopia, claiming rights of "eminent domain" to anything directly below their land masses. Conversely, the prince was not keen on sharing with the demanding "landlubbers" and denied them at every opportunity for even insignificant requests, already disquieted by their naked grabs for minerals, foregoing diplomacy in defense of the mermaid ways and their ancient claims to all things underwater.

The demands for more and more resources became a point of contention for the merpeople as a whole, who clamored to their prince for greater action. The Beautiful Mermaid weighed their concerns heavily, not eager for war but nor content to sit by for the sake of peace. The training of elites and manufacture of merweapons was accelerated in preparation for the possibility of open conflict.

However, knowing that his enemies were of strange ability, the Beautiful Mermaid realized that he would need to expand his knowledge of the various arts to combat them effectively. He isolated himself in the study of texts and scrolls that showed him the path to greater power...

~~~ Rise of the shadowgotens ~~~

During his studies of the arts, the Beautiful Mermaid became inexplicably drawn to the shadow element. Why this is so has been a subject of debate among merhistorians. Some accounts say that the king found a certain fascination with the unknown mysteries of what was perceived a rogue element. Others note that that shadow, which in and of itself is not inherently evil, is nonetheless a force that consumes, and sought out a strong body with which to align and somehow "called" to him. Still another account makes reference to the king's affinity for shadowpuppetry. But no matter the true impetus, the Beautiful Mermaid worked feverishly to learn this new discipline and gradually fashioned it into an effective tool... not knowing that it would do the same to him.

The First shadowgoten

As the desperate studies continued, a darkness began to enshrouded the Prince that became increasingly apparent to his closest aides. However, knowing that their enemies were of strange ability, their trust in the Prince's ability to control this aura, and to fall out of it once the danger had passed, were absolute.

They were wrong.

The transformation from sovereign to servant is a subtle one. Though his aides said nothing, even the Beautiful Mermaid noticed the slow onset of change... to his behavior, to his speech, to his manner of rule. But couldn't this have just as easily been a side effect of gearing up for war? Conflict was on the horizon, after all. Fighting with the surface world could break out any day if they chose to press their plundering further. Everyone in the mermaid court knew that the prince was different... off. But the conviction and confidence needed to study the problems of war made it easy to write off his behavior as just that- caused by the situation at hand, and not a new one growing in its place...

To Be Continued...

Additional Notes:
Being one of the original, "long lost" members of IGNO means that I have an expansive history that predates a lot of what IGNO has become (much of which I am, as a result, unfamiliar). When I decided to make a reappearance, which in real time is actually after several years' absence, I also decided that there had to be "reasons" for why Lemmy left and that changes would have occured in that time. A lot of that is still in development, but the general idea behind what I'm doing is that I sort of update my persona to account for the passage of time while treading carefully on the beloved IGNO "canon", which pretty much demands I be a mermaid and uphold the... uh, mermaid traditions, which may or may not involve muffins and a ladybug.

Bear with us. We're renovating!

Skills and Talents: A skilled water master at the time of his original reign, water has now been layered upon by shadow as the primary element.

CHEW (formerly SERF), where a mob of shadowgotens ride black tides in pursuit of chewy chewiness.

IMMA FIRIN MAH LAZOR, a purple merbeam fired from the Trident of Sorrows that can have varying effects ranging from magical to destructive.

SHADOWPOOL, a black water that whirlpools victims into severe despair. It can also be used for teleporting, and often brings people to a shadowgoten for chewing.

In addition to being a skill, these pools also occur naturally in the dystopian future where shadow influences tend to run rampant.

LAST PAGE OF THE TERRI-BIBLE, a spell taken from the original text that is so incomprehensible that we're not sure if it utilizes actual magic or merely renders confusion through pure misspellings.

General abilities include swimming and the heavy tail strike, the latter comparable to being kicked by a mule. Specialized abilities tend to revolve around shadow water powers and anything that can be taught to the shadowgotens.

Weapon/Combat Power of Choice: The Trident of Sorrows, an ancient staff that was corrupted by his studies of shadow. It fires a purple merbeam (see above) and also dictates control of the waters.

The Trident can be stolen, thereby reducing Lemmy's powers, but it doesn't recognize any other authority, rendering he and the shadowgotens immune.

Weaknesses: Physically weak to Light and light-based powers. Also weak to actual light, having outfitted his residence with those weak-ass energy saver bulbs and become sensitive to the power of true wattage.

Mentally weak with regard to the shadowgotens. These chewing children of shadow are his great joy. Injuring a shadowgoten will start a war, but capturing one (though difficult to do and dangerous to keep) might prompt a subsequent surrender.

Because what shadowgoten knows, and most people don't, is that sharing is caring.
