Rank: Corporal (Actually Private first class)
Unit: Central Science & Development Bureau
Occupation: Full time designated field operator for Experimental Variable Armour series. Currently attached to the 108th Battalion for testing of his device under actual combat conditions
An exercise freak who cannot stay still for too long, constantly exercises whenever he has nothing to do. An exception is that when he sleeps, he sleeps like the dead, very quiet and still. In fact, even his chest does not move much, which tends to scare people who have not seen him sleep before. After passing the basic course for all TSAB members, he was assigned to the Central Science & development Bureau due to his strength and stamina. His assignment currently is
to assist the scientists and mages there in testing an experimental device, which due to its weight, he is much suited for.
Constantly cheerful despite having a tendency to think out loud without ever realizing it. Even when others tell him he is doing it, he gets very surprised. He does not into trouble (much) as he has a positive outlook and tends to think nicely of people although on occasion, people have taken offense at his words/thoughts. On the other hand, he does not have much friends as most think his exercise and thinking out loud habits is very embarrassing. However, he is very kind and is known keep food on him to feed any strays or animals he sees which includes any familiars in creature form. He doesn't attempt to feed familiars in humanoid form, instead treating them like full humans.
He get along well with people on a casual basis but most people avoid him due to his quirks. Recently however, it has come to light that he also has a major
tendency to get himself into trouble with various people, especially those with rare skills or are pretty damn powerful. A great majority of those he offended are females which usually results in a hospital stay for him.
Current list of people he has offended at one point or another includes:
Fate T. Harlaown
Another point of note is that he has a major crush on Ginga Nakajima although it is still rather one-sided. Nonetheless, he would agree to just about anything if she asks it of him.
Device: Experimental Variable Armour 001
1st Test version of Experimental Variable Armour series storage devices. Sacrificing speed for added protection, EVA takes protection to the extreme (some say absurd, insane etc) degree. The armour is being developed to become standard TSAB equipment for its clerks. When this device is deployed, it take on the form of full body armour that can be equipped with various subsystems. Additional systems may be also mounted on to the various hard points on the armour itself. Current, there are 2 known modes for the device, simply named mode 1 and mode 2 for now.
The device when deployed, takes the form of full body, armour plating for the entire body and a fearsome, beast-like helmet/mask. The device also includes stronger magical protection then standard barrier jackets and allows the user the use of a few pre-programmed spells affected by the subsystems equipped. This however is just the standard parts for the EVA series devices.
In civilian form, The device takes the form of a simple cross. With the addition of an AI, it becomes a cross with a jeweled center where the A.I. resides if one is installed. Despite the advantages, the device requires quite a fair bit of physical strength in order to be used and activation drains mana at a high rate. Currently, the people at the Central Science & Development Bureau are trying to reduce the weight and power consumption problems so that basic versions of EVA storage devices can become standard equipment.
Mode 1: Base form
Armour grade: Very heavy 1 inch think, battleship grade, heavy neo-titanium alloy.
Subsystems: 1 at max
Additional systems: 1 at max (retro rockets)
Wizard pack: Allowed
Notes: Able to do an emergency set-up with help from A.I Yui.
Mode 2: Battle form
Armour grade: Complex unnamed alloy. Equal to battleship grade armour but lighter. Mass production of alloy is not possible due to the creation requirements.
Subsystems: 4 at max
Additional systems: 5 at max
Wizard pack: Allowed
Notes: Massive drain of mana at higher outputs
Subsystems: Internal systems designed to modify or give additional abilities to the Eva device
A003 - "Sachiel": Enables the use of [Concussion Lance]. See pre programmed spells for additional details.
A007 - "Israfel": Enables the use of [Minor Unison Mode]. Allows a sort of unison between the user and device.
A014 - "Zeruel" : Enables the use of [Cross flare & Cross Symphony]. See pre programmed spells for additional details.
A017 - "Tabris" : Enables the use of [AT field Plus]. See pre programmed spells for additional details.
Additional systems: External systems giving the Eva additional abilities
[Forced Unison Mode] - System that forces a unison between man and device leading to vastly increased speed, agility, strength, power and mana control. However, synchronization between the two is forcefully raised until the dividing line between man and device is blurred which leads to a berserker status. User may not be able to recognize friend from foe in this state. Requires unlocking incantation: "My fist is the divine breath. Blossom, o fallen seed, and draw upon our hidden powers. Grant unto us the power of the glorious 'Mother of Destruction. Forced Unison Mode, UNLOCK!"
[Holonic Armor]: Light weight anti-energy armour system. Adaptation of holographic technology which made the training ground of RF6. Current flaws include high inflexibility, limiting it to rigid surfaces and high mana consummation.
[PVK-263 System]: Phantom cartridge system. Aiming to replace the standard Velka-type cartridge system, the CSDB came up with this, a system that does not rely on a physical supply of cartridges. System will create cartridges based on the creation mode settings.
Active requires the mage to feed energy to create the phantom cartridges like normal cartridge creation. Passive will allow the system to drain spare magical energy from the surroundings or from a mage's linker core without direct intervention. Phantom cartridge creation is constant but very very slow. Hybrid mode is like passive but the mage is required to restrict the flow of energy as this mode sets up a very fast drain without direct intervention. Highly dangerous as system can drain a mage dry if careless.
Usage of phantom cartridges are also different. They can be used like normal cartridges, giving the mage a sudden burst of power or they can be used as a constant power source. current flaws include random cartridge burst where power is simply wasted and disbursed rapidly into the surroundings. This occurs more often as more phantom cartridges are stored. Command to use an cartridge is [Burst!]/[Multi-burst!]/[Constant burst!]
[Retro rockets]: Aids in boost assisted jumping.
Wizard packs: These are additional systems that are mounted onto the hard points of the armour on the back. Only 1 may be mounted at any point.
[Magagumo wizard pack]: A weapon system that features 6 claws attached to retractable tentacles for short to mid range (25 meters) combat which can also double as extra protection.
[Aero Dancer wizard pack]: Flight system designed to give flight capability to the device user. Currently unavailable due to instability.
Standard deployment equipment for Tais include twin retro-rockets, semi-integrated magagumo wizard pack, cartridge system and an expanded memory core with an experimental A.I installed (see below for details on AI).
The A.I. Yui is a very recent addition to Tais's EVA storage device. As she does not have a separate physical form(yet) like Lieutenant Colonel, Yagami Hayate's Reinforce Zwei, adding Yui to the EVA device makes it technically just an Intelligent device. As the primary user of the EVA device, Tais was given the chance to name the A.I and he choose to call her Yui. This A.I like most other parts of the device are experimental it is meant to be the stable Mid-Childa version of the Velka unison device, which the people at the Central Science & Development Bureau hope would turn Unison devices into viable products.
Yui has developed in an "interesting" way and she also does not like it when people refer the entire armour as her. She would constantly insist that she is just the memory core portion. Tais personally "thinks" its because the EVA is very heavy and damn butt ugly and no female likes to think of herself as heavy and ugly.
The official reason for adding an A.I. to the armour is that additional parts may be added or taken away without the hassle of manually retuning the device. Unofficially, the A.I exists so that it can save Tais's behind when he starts getting into trouble.
Form fitting, black, full body flexible polymer suit, covering covering every single inch of the body except the area around and between the eyes. Provides zero protection but acts like a very low grade boost device to help reduce the stress of energy drainage from the E.V.A series devices by efficiently transferring energy from the mage to the device by use of 361 strategically placed amplifiers throughout the suit.
Tais usually starts off combat by activating [Blocker] auto guard shield spell and [Boost up... Strength] spell. Next he literally charges into the enemy with an [AT Field shield] spell and dismisses it when he gets into melee combat range. Due to the addition of the magagumo wizard pack, his combat style has changed to concentrating heavily on casting [Cage Barrier], a force field spell, relying on Yui's auto guard spell and the armour to protect him while he confines the enemy with him. Deploying the claws, he will (with Yui's help) use them to attack and defend and occasionally, wrapping a claw around the opponent to crush them. Trap, Tank and Spank in short.
Tais isn't very good at spell casting, in fact he has only mastered 2 spells and said spells require him to chant the incantations without Yui's assistance. Despite his poor spell casting, he can cast and maintain up to 4 force fields with ease.
Recently, he was noted to have casted a pre programmed spell without said help from the A.I. and when the device was deactivated, bring the total of mastered spells to 3. Whether or not he is able to cast the variations of that spell remains to be seen.
[Boost up... Strength] - 1st of 2 spells that Tais has mastered. This spell increases his physical strength which allows him to use EVA with greater ease. Incantation: "In the name of fire, power of the flame, bestow upon me the strength to crush my foes. Boost up... Strength!"
[Cage Barrier] - 2nd of 2 spells that Tais has mastered. This spell is a force field spell Tais use constantly for many purposes, 1 of them being an umbrella. Another use he has is to trap an opponent between 2 of them and then shrink/enlarge the outer/inner barrier, applying tremendous pressure to his opponent. Incantation: "Beast that guards the gates of the dead, barrier that shields and traps, I invoke thee, Cage Barrier!"
[AT Field] - This is a very tough shield spell despite its name which can deflect a great many physical and magical attack. The strength of this spell depends on the amount of energy that is channeled into it. Manual incantation: "I call upon the holy region, the light of the soul, the place that must not be invaded by anyone, the wall the encloses the heart of man. AT Field!"
[AT Field Plus] - Stronger version of [AT Field] shield spell. Used only for blocking heavy attacks as the user will be unable to move once the shield is casted.
[Blocker] - Auto guard magic. While it can guard in every direction, it is just as easily broken.
[Concussion Lance]- A short ranged anti siege weapon projected from the palm of a user's hand, designed to deal damage specifically to non-living material only. Does exactly zero damage to living targets. At most, it dazes living targets with the explosion of any non-living material on the target. Although very effective for destroying barrier jackets, it is extremely inefficient to use it against mages due to high mana consumption used in stabling the lance and also any inorganic material will easily destabilize it as well.
[Cross explosion] - A relatively swift moving beam attack that when it hits something, explodes into a cross shape beam of energy. The strength of this spell
depends on the amount of energy that is put into the attack. No matter how little power is put into the attack, its still requires a bit of time to charge. Also note that this attack cannot hit an opponent directly. Example, to hit an opponent, caster must shoot at an object below said opponent to hit them from below.
[Cross Flare] - Variation of [Cross explosion]. Very fast casting speed but low power assuming the same amount of mana is channeled. This attack may be used to hit an opponent directly
[Cross Symphony] - Wide area variation of [Cross Flare]. Similar to [Cross Flare] but used as an area attack. Requires heavy expenditure of mana.
[Recovery] - Restoration magic that can repair the device in a few seconds. Not available if the device is too heavy damaged.
Unlike most other mages, who can store large amounts of mana in their bodies, Tais is different. Due to his initial training as well as the usage requirements of the EVA device, Tais can store only certain amounts of mana which is slightly less than average. However, he is able to regenerate mana at very high speeds which is the secret of him being able to use multiple force fields with ease as well as able to handle the stress of using the EVA device; all those require a constant stream of mana in order to be kept active. Despite this ability, he still isn't able to handle the extreme drainage of power yet when EVA mode 2 is used at maximum output.
As seen from his abilities, there seems to be an error in Tais's mage rank. Quite a few have noted that with the addition of the EVA device, Tais's abilities is at least that of a A- ranked mage. Even without the EVA device, his skill alone with force fields would have have him as a B ranked force field specialist mage.
However, there is a simple reason on why is he just a D+ mage. The main reason is that Tais simply did not take the mage ranking tests due to not knowing where his standard issued staff is after Director Tsuzuki took it from him. Tais has no idea that he isn't restricted to using the standard issued staff/spear and in fact, allowed to use customized devices like the EVA device for the tests.
