Hmm, I can't say I can imagine very well a toddler possessing past memories as an adult, filled with carnage and mayhem and assassinations. In fact, I think it'd be quite traumatic, where you see blood as an infant.

And really, boredom makes such a flimsy excuse to help.

The only way around this that I could see would be to add the "inherit skills" feature of Archer's tracing magic into Iris's steel magic, something I'm really leery on because I have no idea how I'd explain it in-series; the best I could do would be to tear the explanation straight from Wikipedia.
Actually, what makes Tracing inseparable from being a genius with swords? A natural talent with swords is quite moot, seeing as how some people are talented in strategizing and ranged attacks.

Ah, seems like you're back to using the "Metal" element you thought of, and it looks like it evolved into magnetism. One immediate toning down effect that you'd probably need to consider is that this skill can only affect macroobjects and not microobjects. No blood pulling, enzyme denaturation, and stuff like that. Else, we'll have to give you a big hammer. Well, there's also the Device disabling effect, but we'll wait and see.

Just a small note to everyone, my Backlog Breaker posts have been moved to the front page of this thread, thanks to Skyfall's help. I know it's a bit of a pain to manually quote and copy-paste the text, so it should be more convenient now, though if you don't want to reply or comment on anything, that's still fine.

How so?

Iris's abilities revolve around the creation of a special form of liquid metal. Much in the same way that Signum and Fate have mana conversion abilities for fire and lightning, Iris's Rare Skill allows her to convert mana into a solid mass of magically-enhanced metal which she uses as her primary weapon. With her focus on swordsmanship, it's natural that she would place a certain amount of emphasis on creating swords and the like, but she also uses any metal she creates to erect shields, launch explosive attacks, enhance the strength of her armor and weapons, sprout metallic tentacles/wings/limbs from her body, and all kinds of other cool stuff. Magnetism doesn't really have a place in that lineup. Her ability to control sources of metal that she didn't create herself is quite limited, unless there's something in the Affinity data that says Fate and Signum can convert natural fire/lightning into mana, and not just the other way around....

Oh, and Unlimited Blade Works exists somewhere in her distant future. This is a plot-related event connected to Iris finding the purpose of her existence, namely acting as Vivio's sword and shield, and deciphering the proper incantation to manifest her spirit on the physical plane as a reality marble. This wouldn't take place until late in at least the first story arc.

Hadn't even considered it.
My bad, then . When I read controlling "masses of metals and metallic objects", magnetism simply popped into mind.

Right, liquid metal. I don't think it's impossible for natural lightning/fire to be converted to mana. Recall the food being transformed to mana from the DVD booklet of the mage's diet? Using the same theory, it works both ways. The only reason it's not made canon is that, Fate and Signum are not totally immune to those physical energies, so they can still get zapped or burned to charcoal from exposure. Perhaps they're resistant, but definitely not immune.

Liquid metal, though, would be even tougher. I can't imagine Iris munching on metal pipes and drinking mercury and still be safe.

Rebuild of Turmoil


[/SPOILER]


While this is very similar to the most recent version posted, I've made a few things more overt and concrete in this version, and taken steps to ameliorate

certain otherwise overpowered aspects.

one obvious change is that David is now an explicit Rare Ability user, with a special skill linked into his background called Savant. In practical terms,

this reflects the fact that David has been using magic unconsciously and near constantly for a long time without realising, until it is pretty much reflexive

for him. Because of this, David's casting times are exceptionally fast; as mentioned, often the spell is fully cast before he's even thought of it fully.

Also because of this, David's spells are much less precise than a normal mage's, and can vary wildly dependent on his subconscious mental state.

Because he's not only an unclassified mage, but also a Rare Ability user, it makes his acceptance by and rise through the Bureau that much more likely, and

so sets the scene for him to be included in major story arcs (hint hint), without seeming out of place next to the much more (directly) powerful main

characters.

Another obvious change (or at least one that sets the Haxbuster alarm bells ringing) is the fact that he now has THREE, yes count 'em THREE Devices: Two

heavily altered Boost Devices and His armed device.
This obviously requires Justification. The story behind them is this:

The Boost Devices serve to manage and regulate specific areas of David's unpredictable Savant powered spells. Each is keyed to a specific area, and prevents

spells of that type getting out of hand due to subconscious mental issues or vagaries of unconscious spell forming. This is explained in their own profile

entries. Basically, they are used as a form of 'Smart' limiter that keeps things under control, but still allows his full power to be used when necessary.

The armed Device, then simply becomes the primary offensive implement.

The other part of it is that I wanted to produce a Black and a white device to add to the Grey one, and so emphasize the dichotomy of David's role: as a

Battlefield medic, He is expected to heal, but also to kill if needed, and so he is a kind of paradox. Hence we have the two coloured aspects, which reflect

these two roles, and then the grey which reflects his acceptance of such dichotomy.

I think I'm fairly happy with this as it stands...it's got some power behind it, but not too much as to upset the applecart, or dethrone aces and major

frontliners, but at the same time, he's there to fight with all he's got, and to pick up the pieces afterward if need be...

He may not be Awesome, but he's got your Back...

Or should that be (and for the original owner of this phrase too, for those that recognize it...)

That: He IS awesome BECAUSE he's got your back?

Mahou Shounen Medical David, Hajimarimas
LOL Never thought I'd see a Trauma Center reference here. So it's preetty much a modified Ascelepius, right?

Anyway, I rather like the implementation of the spells. There are some spells that look awkward if he's a combat medic, but it works well.

Well, I see a relative AAA-rank. So I don't have any general problem there.

I've got to say, his generalized backstory does ignite... -_-; from me though. Well, love bites, but... lol.

... er, there's no 'utmost' proof of Blaster System being Nanoha's own design. Even if the funnels are an extention of it, it doesn't neccesarily mean that

the System itself was solely Nanoha's. Unless I'm missing something here.

Personally, I consider B.System to be a general 'forced over-boost' system that adapts itself to the device it's equipped with. If other mages use it, it

might have a different implementation of the weapon depending on the user. In Nanoha's case, it just amplified her output and control to the extent it can be

divided into funnels.

I had a plan that delwed into the story behind the creation of the 'general Blaster System', but whatever.

the team that designed it, or at least ingrained in the process (which becomes even more plausible knowing that the system was designed for Raising Heart

specifically, I imagine Nanoha would want to be as closely involved with this as possible).

Of course, that doesn't exclude Xiro working on the Blaster system, but not to the point where he worked on the prototype and recommended it to her

(why on earth would they go to a Belkan mage to test a prototype Mid weapon intended for a Mid SAFA mage? I'd think they'd go straight to the person the

thing is meant for). I would think that he would have worked on it along side her.
Err... was it ever stated that Blaster System was designed for RH in mind? My memory is hazy.

Either way, the biggest assumption here is WHAT is the Blaster System.

On a related note....

Guys, I have something that I really want to run by you involving Iris.... specifically her status as an S-rank mage.

*Dodges death glares, prog knives, and rotten fruit*

WAIT WAIT, HEAR ME OUT!

After some consideration of the situation with Iris and my still-forming picture of her, I realized that there's a very simple, very easy way to match

her up with Vivio as a romantic interest without setting off every squick alarm from here to 4chan, and that method is to make her a child of Project FATE.

The story goes like this: Iris grows up as a member of the Kingswood crime family (named for the Holden Kingswood, in keeping with the tradition of naming

Mid-Childan characters after cars), a high-ranking combat mage and skilled assassin. She's a AAA-rank mage at the age of 19 as of five months after A's, when

Nanoha and Fate begin to conduct an investigation of the Kingswood family and their connection to a mysterious arms dealer, namely good old Scaglietti, who's

supplying the Kingswood family with mass-based weaponry in exchange for funding for the creation of the Numbers.

Eventually Nanoha and Fate begin to zero in on Scaglietti's base of operations, and the Kingswood family responds by dispatching Iris to protect Scaglietti.

At the same time, however, Hayate and the Wolkenritter join the investigation, with Vita reinforcing Fate and Nanoha while Hayate, Signum, Shamal and Zafira

hit the Kingswood family compound.

Fate, Nanoha, and Vita arrive at Scag's base of operations and are met at the front door by Iris. Iris is an even match in power for each of her opponents,

but she has vastly more skill and experience, and successfully does battle with our heroines, stalling them long enough for several of Jail's Type-IV Gadgets

to get into ambush positions. The trap is sprung, Nanoha takes a near-fatal blow, and Fate goes ballistic, unleashing Riot Zamber and Sonic Drive for the

first time and annihilating both Iris and the Gadgets... but Jail has already packed up shop by the time the battle is over.

In the aftermath, one of Jail's Gadgets returns to the site and retrieves Iris's corpse, which is then revived using the techniques involved with Project

FATE. Jail plans to use Iris the same way he uses Lutecia, and for a while he does, using her to steal Jewel Seeds to power his Gadgets with. Eventually,

however, Iris gets too willful for Jail to control, and takes off in search of a more interesting line of work, and hopefully more powerful enemies to face.

Jail dryly makes a note to install some kind of control mechanism in the still-developing Lutecia. Eventually, Iris falls in with another crime family, who

use her as their top assassin until Vivio shows up a few years after StrikerS.

***

My justifications for the S-rank are as follows: first, Iris spent the majority of her first life in training to become the Kingswood family's chosen

enforcer/assassin, and it took her quite a number of years to reach AAA-rank, as opposed to Nanoha and Fate who basically started off like that. After her

resurrection, she continues her training out of habit, and by the time Vivio turns up on Arcadia, she's had between 7-10 extra years to achieve S-rank.

The advantages of putting her through Project FATE should be obvious from a 'shipper's point of view: with Iris essentially going through her childhood all

over again, she has room to be both very mature and very skilled while still being at a proper age to be Vivio's romantic interest; she'd be about 14-15

years old at the story's start, possibly a bit younger.

My reasons for making Iris into an S-rank are also related to the plot I have laid out. Fate holds Iris largely responsible for Nanoha's near-death

experience, and when Iris comes knocking with Vivio at the end of the first story arc, Fate's not going to be the least bit happy to see her again, creating

an incredible amount of tension between them (Never mind what Vita would have to say about it). This isn't helped in the slightest by the fact that

Iris would gladly fight with Fate again to "settle the score" save for Vivio's wishes, which she will by this time be following faithfully. The tension only

gets greater if Iris is an S-rank, because it suddenly becomes uncertain as to who would come out on top in such a battle.

Well, what do you guys think? I tried to think this out from every angle and I couldn't come up with any flaws in the idea save for the scrutiny S-ranks get

around here. If it's still not enough justification I could also just lower her rank or say that her growth has stagnated since her first death. I also think

I've done a rather bang-up job of smoothly integrating her into canon. But enough about what I think; what do you guys think?

Never said but Fate wasn't likely to be with Nanoha during that particular operation. Even then, the gadgets were still an unknown to the Aces and the TSAB

then sans the Type-4.

Scag has the Brains for funding so it's more likely that he just sought out the family for the gadget parts. Besides, the Brains would want to keep their

prized Orphan close to keep an eye on him.

S-ranks are still okay with justifications and histories. It's the SS ranks or dubious/h4xx abilities that will ring the alarm bells. S-rank mage along the

lines of Zest and a B-rank mage with uber-abilities; pretty obvious which will raise eye-brows.

That's all for now. Will see if I missed anything out later.
What Tormenk said.

Personally, if the plot demands a degree of strength, it's better to reflect the moment of the time that strength is needed. If it's needed in general, then

a relative AAA should be enough depending on the situation. You can always give her a lame Rare Skill that would work against one enemy, and nothing else.

Besides, if it's Fate we're talking about, the whole PROJECT F DRAMA would essentially render her... emotionally open.

However, to be able to best so many high rank mages would require more than just experience methinks.
Another question to ask is why Nanoha and fate would never aprove, concidering their track record.

Actually, to me this picture radiates Tesla. It took me a while before I realized that this was Kyonko and Yuki (and it was Yuki that gave it away. ), and I did do an experimental merge of Tesla and Kyonko a while back. Kyonko's snarky personallity was always mirrored in Tesla anyway.

For now lets take the same route this very series has taken: Lotsa implications of many pairings, but nothing concrete. :3 Kinda like how Nanoha has a harem if you take all the sugestive NanoFate/NanoVita/Yuunoha scenes into account.

We can work this out to benefit us both, but I am not going to selfishly cling Vivio to myself, much though I want to.

While on the subject of Iris, Cort, I really liked your initial draft better then this one. The girl encountered on a lawless planet -damn I almost wrote Nar Shadaa there - is much more believable and entertaining then this new Assasin-child-turned-roject-F-experiment-of-jail-that-injured-Nanoha-before-encountering-Vivio-and-falling-in-love-creating-chaos-in-the-family girl she has become.

Either way, the biggest assumption here is WHAT is the Blaster System.
Specifically stated? Not as far as I recall. Easilly assumed? Sure. Raising Heart may look as close to the standard devices of all the hero devices, but it is still a custom device, with many modes other devices do not have simply because of the stress they put on the user.

Initial draft... wait, what? Are we still talking about my more recent Aeon-approved storyline, or something I mentioned on IRC a few weeks ago?

Eto ... shouldn't that be the current draft than the initial one? The initial one was the assassin-family Iris.

I don't do IRC, so I wouldn't know.

No, I meant this one (that's the first draft you threw at me, so to me, that's the initial draft. I have no idea what you've been doing in IRC) I like this one a lot better then the latest 'has beaten Nanoha, could beat Fate and happens to be a Project F subject' version.

You don't do IRC so you wouldn't know, but I have been planning on creating a Nanohaverse fictional sport... and kinda have plans for a school drama story...

And it involves Vivio and Syn... and well...OCs...and well... schools and rival schools... what's a little love-conflict? :3

It's true that Blaster Mode for Nanoha looks personalized, but that doesn't necessarily mean the core of the system was designed with RH in mind. If we take what Quattro said, it looked like B.Mode itself is a physical-punisher of an augmenter, and personally, I'd say that it's possible that Blaster Mode was just that system, which was integrated into Nanoha's to allow it to be effectively used with RH.

Basically, the core programming of BS was added quirks and tuning to fit Nanoha's style to maximize the effects of B.S towards Nanoha. It'd be pointless if all it contributed was a bigger beam and stronger gripping power after all.

I thought of Blaster System akin to a chip. The chip's function is *etc*, but depending on the machine-type and the purpose of the machine's user, the external attachments, cards, plugs, needs and everything differ individually, where if Fate is the one to use B.S instead, it would be... I dunno, ZANKANTOU Zamber?

Unless you're A-ranked or above, you can't start flight training, which means that 90% of the Air Force mages will start in the Ground Force. Even Teana is in the Ground Force with the idea of rising to the Air Force once she has enough experience. Xiro's bio is nothing out of the ordinary in that regard.
Start ground and move on to air, huh? I can see that working. Gotta start with the basics.

Misguided attempt to self-h4xxbust, I call this.

You just made a rather straightforward skill that I had no problem with (save the power level) a ridiculously paradoxical attack.
Gotta agree here. If I was a psychic, you can bet I'd find a way to make "blast 'em back" a feasible move somehow.

For Truth. Quoted for Truth. Although to have Xiro work with her isn't too bad, ya know. That poor heartbroken boy.

Which is why you realize that NOBODY in the Air Forces uses stuff that Nanoha designs, it's frickin' suicidal, and only someone like her would try it



OSHI-

*is blown away by STARLIGHT BUREKA*
See, this is why Nanoha's gonna be a cripple before she turns 40. All this stuff pushing herself way farther than she has a need to, and making stuff like the Blaster System a beamspam enhancer...

Well, I do it like this: If I think an idea might be haxx, or if I want to figure our how far I can push something, I try to ask whoever I think is most likely to call me on it. Besides, a preliminary questioning isn't ever a bad idea; you should at least present something for the wolvesaudience to chew on.

That seems reasonable. If I were Nanoha, I'd want someone to be watching me test the thing, in case it blew up or what have you. And given that it's meant for a specific purpose, testing how it functions outside that is a safe idea.

I myself try to be as polite and helpfull as possible, first by not swearing, second by not assuming the poster needs to have the info rammed through his/her throat. Stating ways that would fix the problem helps too.
You do have a point...I think, and I'm not pointing fingers here or anything, that some of the hostility on the old thread was due partially to the...zealous...attitude of our busters. Although, I guess you can't really claim that title without a bit of bluntness. (Emphasis on the "bit" part.)
