Character Creation
Name: Eska Goe
Age: 22
Species: Human cyborg

Physical Description:


A petite young woman, short, pale skin. She wears a blue snail shell-shaped helmet and often has dark tinted aviator glasses on. She looks almost entirely human, except for her right arm which is fully robotic and slightly larger than her left arm. While the rest of her body is robotic as well, it's not as strikingly so. She's hardly ever seen outside of uniform, but, when she is, she'll wear sun dresses.

Backstory:


Eska doesn't know anything about her life before the marines. Her earliest memories were within a lab of Dr Vegapunk being experimented on, but not even much of that remains in the two years since. She is the result of an attempt to create a human/den den mushi (Transponder Snail) hybrid. She can can communicate with other snails, disrupt communications, and intercept communications. She also has visual snail powers to record and project images with her eyes. In addition to that, this project only succeeded, as much as it did, because her body was cybernetically enhanced. Her whole body has been replaced by machinery which runs on simple carbohydrates. She downs sweets like they are nothing and feels energized when she does. If she goes without sugar(s) for a while, she'll be quite sluggish (buh dump tish).

She's been with the marines as a communications officer using her unique abilities during this time. Whether by design or incident, she has a strong sense of justice and is empathetic to all creatures in distress. While she might not be aggressive or intimidating, she has the courage to face down tough opponents to protect others. She primarily fights by analyzing her opponents and delivering a single, finishing blow to end the conflict. While her strong, metallic body is capable of delivering a concerning blow, her main avenue of attack is with her variety of trusty dials when she's pressed to fight.

When asked to go undercover as a pirate, she quickly accepted despite not feeling certain about the mission. She respects the choices of her superiors and trusts in their decision making, though wonders how she'll manage a life devoid of the marines since that's all she now knows. She's often worried that her weird appearances puts people off, and strives twice as hard to make people like her feels twice as bad when she's mocked. Knowing this, she's unsure if she'll cut it as a pirate, but wants to prove herself to her commanding officers.

Do you want a Devil Fruit?

Eating a devil fruit is not a priority for Eska, but she would take one if she knew what is was and thought it would be good. Otherwise, she doesn't want to bother.

Do you want to master Haki? Why? What type?

Eska's spirit is very strong but unfocused, making it hard for her to perform Haki. She would want to learn the armament technique to imbue herself and her dials so they could protect against devil fruits and other Haki users.

Whats your fighting style?

Gadgeteer. Using a variety of tools and equipment to land devastating, critical blows meant to end combat quickly.

What role on the ship does your character fill?

Communications officer and tinkerer.

What is your sense of Justice?

Help anyone who cries out for it.

How does your character feel about going undercover as a Pirate?

Hesitant, since she doesn't know how she'll live that way, but feels obligated to comply.

How does you character feel about higher authority?

She trusts her superiors.

What aren't you willing to do?

Eska strictly follows the non-aggression principle. She'll only act in violence if it's to stop violence.

Character Creation
Name: Trace Strain
Age: 37
Species: Human

Physical Description
Trace is a broad powerfully built man if a bit on the short side.  His short cut salt and pepper hair show his age but his lively eyes and constantly cheerful attitude seem like they should belong to a much younger man.  More than two decades working in shipyards have covered him in small scars and a deep tan and given him a well toned body.  He usually wears simple jeans and a tank top in whatever color strikes him that day with black combat boots.

Backstory
Born in South Blue as the son of a shipwright, Trace was pretty much destined to build ships.  His earliest memories are of trying to help his father at work, in the unhelpful way that only children can.  He grew and leared and worked beside his father and generally lived a peaceful and contented life.  He was only 14 when he ate the Bend-Bend Fruit, completely unknowingly.  It was mixed in with a shipment of mixed fruit that reached their island, either as a mistake or as to transport it unnoticed and never got picked up.  While the inability to swim was annoying for Trace he quickly learned to cope as the fruits powers were well suited to   He was married at 17 with a child on the way when things changed.  Pirates raided his family's shipyard killing his father and taking or destroying almost everything they had.

With his livelyhood gone and a family to think of Trace did the best thing he could think to do.  He joined up with the Marines, with years of experience it was a simple matter to get assigned to a shipyard where he could be close to his family and work to support them.  As time passed his children grew and life was mostly good for him.  However he was slowly growing apart from his wife, and shortly after their children left to pursue their own lives they decide to divorce and Trace was left unsure what to do with his life now that the family that had been his focus was gone.  He stills talks to his children through letters and he and his ex-wife are still on cordial terms but they are obviously no longer a unit.

Left uncertain where to go from there Trace just went through the motions for awhile before deciding something had to change.  Despite his age he began to put in requests for a transfer, he wanted to go to a more active post.  Despite being rejected time and again he kept trying and started putting more effort into combat training.  Eventually though he would get his wish, Sengoku noticed him as he was looking for people to join his experiment.  His devil fruit would make maintaining a boat without a crew far easier and his age would actually be a benefit in this post as it would provide a more mature view of the world to the crew.  When offered the chance to go Trace jumped on it and so things began.


Do you want a Devil Fruit? Why? What type?
Bend-Bend Fruit: Allows Trace to bend or straighten anything he touches, whether this change damages it or if it is permanent is determined by him.  Living creatures naturally straighten out over time as their body heals itself of the devil fruit, a process that is accelereated by immersion in water.  He can bend himself freely as well and can even bend the paths of his own movement.


Do you want to master Haki? Why? What type?



Whats your fighting style?
Trace uses a mostly defensive fighting style using long ropes with metal hooks at the ends.  He throws the hooks and uses his powers to change their trajectory as they move or he'll use them as grappling hooks to get around the battlefield.  He is mostly a defensive fighter focusing on avoiding attacks and wearing opponents down so he can restrain them with ropes.  Not that he can't take a hit, with years in a highly physical job he's considerably tough.  Since he spent most of his career in shipyards he is a relatively inexperienced combatant giving him a relaince on the strength of his devil fruit to get by.


What role on the ship does your character fill?
Shipwright


What is your sense of Justice?
For Trace justice is protecting those he cares about, even with his family scattered he wants them to be safe.  He sees the rule of law as the best way to achieve that and therefore supports the rules.  Though he sometimes has been known to question the idea of the law not looking at the circumstances and instead being an absolute.


How does your character feel about going undercover as a Pirate?
Trace has been looking for a fresh start in his life and sees this as a perfect opportunity.


How does you character feel about higher authority?
He is fine with authority in general, but still thinks for himself.


What aren't you willing to do?
While he will obey an order he dislikes he won't do anything obviously abusing power or that is not within the bounds of the superiors authority.

Though I need to fine tune his powers I have it set up the way I initially envisioned him and he can bend things that aren't actually physical.  At medium stages he could do stuff like bend the trajectory of bullets that had been fired, things that while they weren't an object or related to him directly weren't abstract either.   The initial plan was for him to, at really late stages, be able to bend things like time and space. If that isn't something that seems feasible then I'll probably need to expand his haki abilities at later stages.
