Weight: Normal for someone of his age, height, and body type. Could use a bit more meat on his bones, though.
Strength: Incredible (Devil Bringer is Fantastic)
Constitution: Incredible (Devil Bringer is Legendary)Other Abilities:Demonic Physiology:
Being only a quarter demon, Nero doesn’t actually seem to benefit much from his demonic blood aside from being physically far and above most normal humans and in his Devil Bringer. Of course, he's not aware of his demonic heritage and it hasn't fully awoken yet.Air Hike:
Nero can create a temporary platform under his feet from demonic energy to jump again in mid-air.Table-hopper:
Essentially a stylish short ranged dash, primarily used to get some breathing room.Combat expert:
Nero is an expert swordsman and gunslinger, both from his training with the Order of the Sword and his own experience in fighting demons.Devil Bringer:
A literal devil arm that is Nero’s right arm. It is fairly conspicuous, between the bright blue glow, chitin-like plating, and sharp claws, and as such he keeps it wrapped up in a sling to keep from drawing too much attention. In addition to being substantially stronger than Nero and impossibly tough, the Devil Bringer can send out spectral arms to grab and manipulate things within a decent range, and to absorb and sense demonic energy with surprising accuracy. Nero also uses it to maneuver by sending out an arm and pulling himself towards whatever he grabs. If the need arises, the Devil Bringer’s projections can scale up to match the size of the task, though only up to a certain point.Equipment:Red Queen:
A Durandal sword commonly used by the Order that’s been heavily modified. The primary modification is in removing the limiter on the system that allows Nero to ‘rev’ the blade, spraying a flammable propellant on the blade, with the resulting blaze increasing the power and the range of his attacks. Furthermore, the system is powerful enough for Nero to be able to use it like an impromptu jet if the need arises.
The sword itself is surprisingly resilient, capable of withstanding blows even from powerful Devil Arms such as the Rebellion or Sparda.Blue Rose:
A specially designed magnum featuring a double-barrelled design that lets it fire off two shots in rapid succession. Though the Order frowns on the use of guns, Nero makes good use of it anyway, and the rounds are powerful enough to damage all but the hardiest of demons if he lands a clean shot. For some extra kick, Nero can charge the shots with demonic energy from his Devil Bringer, to the point of the bullets exploding with the force of a grenade shortly after impact.Origin:
Nero was left at an orphanage as a child, his earliest memories being of his time there. He met Kyrie and Credo early on and took a liking to them, becoming good friends with both and looking up to the latter. Though he lost his faith in things like god after the deaths of their parents, he still followed them and joined the Order of the Sword later on. Between his lone wolf nature and his unorthodox approach, Nero was often saddled with the solo 'special jobs' by the Order, not that he minded too much.
One day, however, he was injured on an assignment to help out Kyrie, along with Kyrie herself. While she recovered completely, Nero's arm changed on that day as it healed. While he was initially worried about it being some sort of infection, he started training with it when he realized what it was capable of. Even so, he kept the arm hidden while in public, as best he could. Then, one day, on the eve of the Festival of Blades, Nero found himself transported to some strange new place in the middle of a training session.Weaknesses:
When he gets worked up, he tends to rush into things only to make them substantially worse.
Likes: Good heavy metal, a decent fight, poker, pizza, working alone, showing off
Dislikes: Demons, pasta, being called a kid, having to use the Devil Bringer in public, missing mom/dad jokes, having to sit through religious stuff, silent types
