BRAMINE

Bramine are manifestations of Creation Magic. Like their Destruction counterpart, the Kalih, Bramine are extremely rare Sheeles that appear in the world only once in a while.

Their demeanor is always very calm. They don’t speak often, but when they do, they do so with great wisdom that defies their appearance. As a general rule, they are loving and caring toward their master, although they tend to relate more like they would as a parent, then as a child.

SHEELITCH

Seelitch are horrors only talked about amongst most expert occultist and their existence is even believed to be a mere legend by most of those that know about it. There are two theories about these spectral creatures. The first is that Sheelitch are generated by using the Shelee summoning ritual on an Undead (something that only an Undead summoner could normally do), making them a manifestation of whatever obscure these creatures have instead of a Soul, called Deathborn Sheelitch, the second theory is that Sheelitch are generated in the extremely rare case that a Shelee survives the death of her master, hence becoming an Orphan Sheelitch. Strange enough, both these theories are correct, since Sheelitch can be given birth in both these circumstances. These Selee appear as completely pale little girls with white blank eyes and white hair, wearing white rugged clothes. Sometimes Sheelitch own some dark and decayed  version of any elemental characteristic the have, like Faren Sheelitch being surrounded by spectral flames or Quinn Sheelitch having some dead dried flowers and plants on their body. Oddly enough it seems like Sheelitch have some “elemental” nature like their normal counterparts. This is easily explained for Orphan Sheelitch, which retain part of their previous nature, but occultists have found no explanation for such phenomenon on Deathborn Sheelitch. Possibly the elemental brand of a soul is somewhat inherited by Undeads as well and manifests when they give birth to a Sheelitch. Still, Sheelitch powers are pretty unique and terrifying. The demeanor of Sheelitch born from undeads is pretty similar to that of their elemental counterpart, but they tend to be more somber and grim. As for Orphan Sheelitch, they are either extremely depressed and grieving or terrifying vengeful spirits that spite all living (most often the second) and extremely dangerous creatures that often fall into the influence of a Dark Court of a Dullahan, where they somewhat substitute their dead master with the Dullahan himself. In the extremely rare occasion that an Orphan Sheelitch dead master is reanimated as an Undead, the Sheelitch will immediately reforge the bond with it, even if the

BASE CHARACTERISTICS:

Base Attributes: As Base Shelee, see below.

Secondary Abilities: As Base Shelee, see below.

Path Level: Necromancy 20.

INNATE POWERS:

Mystical Flight: Sheelitch have a Mystical Flight value of 6.

Deathborn: When summoning a Deathborn Sheelitch, the Undead master must make a roll on the Shelee table as normal. The determined Sheele type is used only for Base Attributes and Secondary Abilities of the Sheelitch (and for its appearance at Game Master’s will).

Magic Drainers: Whenever a Sheelitch inflicts damage by any mean on something that holds Zeon (living, undead or even a Zeon Container), she will drain a quantity of Zeon Points equal to the inflicted damage.

Orphan: When a Sheele master dies, roll a d100 on a roll of 95+, the Shelee survives, but turns into a Sheelitch. She retains her Level, Presence, Projection, Initiative, Life Points, and Resistances. A Sheelitch MA is equal to that of her master at the moment of death and her Zeon reserve is equal to 10 times her Presence. A Sheelitch must substitute all her Elemental specific Improvements with as many chosen Improvements from the Sheelitch list. Also, if the Shelee had a Soul Shape, it will gain the Undead trait. Unless an Orphan Sheelitch finds her previous master in Undead form and reforms the bond with it, she cannot gain any more experience Levels. Orphan Sheelitch cannot become Familiars of other Undead creatures than their previous master. If a Sheelitch finds her previous master and reforges the Shelee bond with it, she restarts functioning exactly like a normal Sheelitch for all that concerns her attributes.

Undead: Sheelitch are considered Undead Creatures and even when using the Soul Shape, the creature they mutate into gains the Undead feature for free.

ENHANCEMENTS:

Bone Armor: The Sheelitch is granted temporary additional Life Points with which to absorb suffered damage (but not self-inflicted Life Points Sacrifice) equal to double her Presence. The additional Life Points last until completely depleted or until a number of turns equal to the Sheelitch’s Willpower have past. Using this ability has a cost of 150 Zeon.

Bone Spirit: The Sheelitch makes an Energy Attack invisible to all unable to see spirits using her Magic Projection +50 and a Base Damage equal to double her Presence plus her Power Bonus. If the spell misses the target, it will keep attacking it during following turns with the same Initiative of the Shelee and a Predetermined Final Attack value equal to that scored originally by the Sheelitch, until either it strikes the target, the target is erased from existence or the Sheelitch is taken out of combat. This ability has a cost of 150 Zeon.

Dance of The Dead: In order to use Dance of The Dead the Sheelitch must declare it before rolling initiative and cannot perform any Active Action during the same turn. When using Dance of The Dead, the Sheelitch obliges all chosen Undead creatures (except for her master) within 50m to take a MR check against a difficulty equal to twice her Presence plus her Willpower Bonus immediately after Initiative is rolled. Those that fail, are under her control for a the full turn. Undeads under the Sheelitch’s control gain an All Action Bonus equal to double her Power Bonus for the full turn. Using this ability has a cost of 300 Zeon.

Howl of The Bansheele: The Sheelitch starts howling affecting every living being within a range equal to her Presence in meters and capable of hearing her. All those affected by this ability must pass an MR check against a difficulty equal to double her Presence or suffer Damage equal to double their Failure Level. Each following turn the Sheelitch keeps using this ability, increase the MR difficulty by 10 and the range by a number of meters equal to her Presence. Targets that can somehow protect their ears can gain a bonus ranging from +10 to +40 to their MR while resisting to this power. The Sheelitch cannot cast spells while using the Howl of The Bansheele, but she can use her other Shelee abilities and maintain previously cast spells. Using this ability has a cost of 50 Zeon Points plus additional cumulative 10 Zeon Points per turn of use after the first.

Improved Abilities: The Sheelitch gets +40 to her Secondary Abilities. This improvement can be chosen multiple times, but the bonus is reduced to +20 after the first time.

Necromancy Mastery: For 5 turns, the Sheelitch gains a bonus to MA she can be transferred as well as MR difficulty of her spells and abilities equal to double her Power Bonus. In order to activate this ability, the Sheelitch must Sacrifice 50 Life Points and spend 250 Zeon points.

Necrotic Renewal: The Sheelitch recovers 10 Life Points per turn regardless of her Regeneration value of 0 as an Undead.

Necrotic Strength: Any undead in physical contact with the Sheelitch is granted the ability to use a number of Fatigue Points up to their Constitution value, as if they had the Use of Necessary Energy ki ability, despite being immune to Fatigue Penalties.

Phylactery: The Sheelitch puts her heart into a container called Phylactery. She cannot be entirely destroyed by any kind of effect until her phylactery is. Even if annihilated, she will reform in the proximity of the phylactery within a daytime.

Vampiric Shade: The Sheelitch can at will become a semi-transparent Vampiric Shade, with the Immaterial power, although she can touch at will anything. While in this state the Sheelitch can try to drain living beings touched or touching the Sheelitch, which must pass a MR check against a difficulty equal to double her Presence or suffer from a Life Drain equal to their Failure Level. Activating this ability has a cost of 20 Zeon.

I like these pretty well, but would like to point out that Avatar of Creation could be used to very easily abuse Chimera.

True, but that extra DP could be used to buy MR, which makes summoning harder,

I have got to say while i love the idea of more sheeles, expecially ones of creation and destruction, I cannot say they fit in with the standard view for how sheeles are created. I believe, and correct me if I am wrong, the Arcana Exxet gives valid reasoning as to why there are no sheeles of destruction and creation. Don't even get me started on Necromancy, which is the complete and utter perversion of magic itself, which is why it does not have a sheel either. Don't get me wrong I love the idea, well besides the necromancy one.... it just seems wrong, But i could only see it fitting in a different setting other than gaia.

 

Oh and a good Idea that I would like to see, Hybrid sheeles. For example a sheele born of two paths of magic. Of course they could not be a hybrid of opposite paths, because that makes sense, but they could be ineresting. For example a water/illusion sheele.

People are not failures simply because they try and fail.

Only when they fail and give up have they truely failed.

I believe that somehow creation and destruction could be considered a magic element as much as the others.

 

As for the Sheelitch, she is a perversion of a Shelee exactly as Necromancy is a perversion of Magic (no living being can, in fact, spawn a Sheelitch, no matter how attuned he/she is to Necromancy).

 

Nevertheless, I'm going to test this stuff in a distant future, I suppose. Hope this works fine, meanwhile I appreciate negative feedback as much as positive and if you don't feel like these Sheeles fit into your Gaia, it's just fine.
