Kiritsugu EmiyaTrue Age:
Kiritsugu is not a man of many words, and is a very detached individual compared to his son, or even his daughter to some extent. To be quite honest, this man's attitude seems to resemble that of an empty man, who has experienced all of life's hardships, that you can come up with. It is very rare to see someone like him engaging in social events, and he would rather be the guy, enjoying time home with his family, or being paid to assassinate the scum that terrorizes earth world, and the people around him that he cares for. He tends to present a cold facade, to others, and rarely enjoys teaming up with partners(the only exception being an assistant he's known for years, Hisau Maiya). Kiritsugu also seems to be very oblivious to human emotions, with his comments sometimes. As stated before, he can be very cold or very quiet and it is an absolute rarity for this man to be friendly. While he may possess very anti-social traits, he does have some knowledge of how to interact with people, as well as bringing happiness to those around him. Kiritsugu is simply a man who has killed most of his emotions due to being a mercenary for almost his entire life. There are only a select few that can truly bring him happiness to his somewhat dim life. Kiritsugu does not enjoy parties, or anything too extravagant and is more use to the customs that he learned during his time as a human. All in all, while this man be a anti-social and sometimes depressing individual, one must simply peel the layers off of his cold facade, in order to bring out the kind hearted man inside of him. It is also revealed, that Kiritsugu does not enjoy making many friends due to the fact, that most of those that have been close to him have met death through one way or another, by his hand or someone else's.
This is the side that Kiritsugu hides from those closest to him, as he refers to this side of himself, as a true killing machine. Due to learning how to kill at a young age, and also experience losing those closest to him as a child, he began to realize that everything in the world around him, was simply a daily occurrence. This lead to him discarding his ideals to become a superhero. From that day, he experienced how much of a hell things were on the battlefield. So many tragedies, So many people dying, So many lost loved ones, all of this turned Kiritsugu into a killing machine, who knew no mercy. He lost most morals of justice, and became a man who could instill fear into anyone who came to face with him, and stared into his cold gaze. Kiritsugu decided that if he could find no salvation from justice, that he would seek a miracle. While Kiritsugu and Shirou seem to differ from each other personality wise, he gave Shirou the same wish that he had always dreamed of for a very long time, to create a utopia where no one would ever get hurt. However, every time he ran into a situation, where one had to die, for others to survive, he realized that this ideal was far fetched.
There could never be a world where nobody would get hurt, because for every person that was saved, there would always be one who would find no salvation in the world, or meet an untimely death. This was why he originally sought the grail, for the miracle, until he realized that it was something impure and filled with every single evil in the world. Since kiritsugu is such a merciless man, there is nothing he will not do to slay his enemies. he would easily take the enemy's closest lover or best friend, and use them as bait, to lure in the enemy and kill both of them without remorse. Not only will he go to elaborate lengths such as this, but when he plans on killing his enemies, he always comes up with a lengthy list of strategies and brain storms, in order to lead the opponent into his trap. Some refer to him as "Magus Killer" as he is one of only a few who fight other rogue sugiuras with unconventional methods. This method of fighting, along with his adept knowledge of sugiura magic, makes him an unbridled warrior, who seems like he was literally built to kill. His brutality becomes even more ferocious, if enemies decide to lay a hand on his wife or child. At this point, Kiritsugu will stop at nothing until he has their head on a silver platter. If someone even dares to hurt them, Kiritsugu will become a devil unlike any other and brutally annihilate them without even a hint of remorse. To put it subtly, if one decides to mess with the Magus Killer, they must be prepared to experience a hell unlike anything they've ever imagined.
-The Father and The Husband-
While Kiritsugu seems to possess a lot of negatives within his personality, his positive will always outweigh all of the bad, at least in his Wife's eyes. Kiritsugu seems to be very fond of children, as well as teenagers. This allows him for the most part, to get along with Shirou and his friends. He is also very protective of Ilya, Since Kiritsugu and Shimura are Ilya's parent's. When he talks with his wife, or his children, you see a kindness that makes all his other personality traits seem like illusions. He was often seen playing games with Ilya when she was a little child, such as looking for walnuts in the trees, of a forest hidden near a mansion, that Kiritsugu, Shimura, and Ilya, use to spend vacations at during times like the spring or summer. This seems to be the only time where Kiritsugu finds true happiness. He loves spending time with Shimura, even when she is conversing with other matters that confuse Kiritusgu on a daily basis, since he still claims that he's new to living the life of the ethereal warriors known as Sugiura. He is always trying to make her happy, and will even act childish to bring a smile to her face. They are quite obviously one of the most beautiful pairs, that one could wish for in life.
Shimura also seems to accept the defects of his personality, and tends to help him improve on the bad traits, so that others may view him in a good light. She is always there to take up for him and explain his actions, even if they do seem unnecessary to others. Kiritsugu in turn, does the same for her, and will protect her from harm, even if that means sacrificing others. He was also very fond of his daughter Ilya, when they spent time together. He described them as days, that he wish he could bring back, but cannot bring them back until he defeats Heroism, and saves her. He seems to loathe Iori to some extent, as he believed there could have been some way to call for help, even if it meant calling others for help. This shows that he has the trait of an over protective father, who watches over his kin on a constant basis. If one wishes to date his children, he will comically quiz them on why they think they would be the perfect fit, along with Shimura tallying up the scores. Not only do Kiritsugu and Shimura love each other very well, but they also fight like well trained warriors on the battle field. Kiritsugu is Shimura's personal body guard, and will make sure no harm comes to her, even if he is at a distance. All in all, Kiritsugu is a family man above everything else, and will continue to be this way for quite some time.
General AppearanceAppearance: Appearance Age:
The Sugiura's have a list of their own Magic they use as well as Shinigami Kido, you can have up to a bit of kido but not every single part of it, also mix it between the magic and Kido. They cannot be a kido master, but can be quite talented at it. however a sugiura could be a master at their magic spells of course. depending on the the type that is.Other Weapons: The Contender:
Thompson/Center Arms Contender Custom, or simply "The Contender, is an ancient hunting pistol modified by Emiya Kiritsugu to use in combat situations against the mighty spiritual entities that frequent his life.
The contender was originally manufactured in 1967 by the American company Thompson/Center Arms, a break-open single shot pistol intended for sport shooting. The pistol is highly accurate due to lack of complex parts between the trigger and the barrel. Even though centuries have passed since its creation, the weapon has been kept in perfect condition, still able to fire its bullets as it did when it was first made.
With a 14-inch barrel and the grip and forearm carved in walnut, it is reminiscent of a dagger in its scabbard. The only visible mechanical parts are the trigger and the hammer, with neither a cylinder nor a slide on the simple exterior.
The gun is modeled in a similar fashion to a percussion pistol used in the last hours of the middle ages. Kiritsugu has modified the gun to use not only a variety of bullets, from rifle rounds to .22LR rounds, but also be able to fire Kiritsugu's unique, mystical ammunition known as the "Origin Bullet"
The Origin Bullet is a special version of the .30-06 rifle bullet, infused with the very essence of Kiritsugu's being, thanks to a special, and painful ritual he undergoes to successfully infuse the bullets with his essence. Kiritsugu was born with the innate ability to "Sever and Bind", as described by himself. Although he has no true prowess over the ability, by inputting the essence of himself within these special "Origin Bullets", he can utilize the effects of his dormant power by actualizing the effects of "Severing and Binding" onto the victim that has been struck by the bullet, as if Kiritsugu was a virtuous user of this ability.
The power of Severing and Binding is the power to distort and fully rupture control one has, whether it be an ability, or their own power, and then reform it in a maladroit manner, causing a temporary phase of meagerness to the being affected by the power. The effectiveness of the bullet depends on the power of the victim, as well as the prowess that victim has over controlling that power.
Max bullets in single cache: 1
Fire rate: 1 bullet per post
Reload rate: 1 post after firing.
Current number of origin bullets: 12
Piercing power:(The piercing power is decreased by one level whence 3/4 of the range has been covered by the distance the bullet traveled. The piercing power is only relevant to armor and impediments that prevent the bullet from making contact with the skin.)
Weak armor (beginner endurance equivalent)=superb
Moderate Armor (Adept endurance equivalent)=High
Strong Armor (Adv. endurance)=Moderate
Neigh indestructible armor (Mast. endurance)=Low.
Range: 450 meters.
Effects of the bullet:
The effects of the bullet become more devastating with the high and mighty, rather than the meek. The more powerful the victim is, the more powerful the bullet is. The effects only occur when the bare flesh is struck by the bullet, meaning that armor, or a shield can be used to prevent the bullet from making contact.
(5-5 to 5-1)
The bullet, upon making contact with the flesh, instantly disappears, leaving no wound or blood whatsoever. The only thing that happens is that all blood vessels and veins where the bullet hit in an 1 inch radius will be subject to necrosis, the outside of the flesh appearing completely fine, but all veins and blood vessels being fully disabled, incapable of achieving their original function. If the bullet hit right onto a concentration of nerves and veins of a limb, that limb could be rendered fully disabled. The bullet does not effect vital organs like the heart and brain, however, even if the bullet hit from point blank range.
The effects are augmented at a light level, as the targets now show some control over extraordinary abilities, although not enough for it to cause disastrous results. Upon contact, the effects will be similar to that of the aforementioned tiers, except that now there will be a burning sensation that can be felt at the body part struck by the bullet, feeling as if boiling blood was flowing within the victim's veins at the area. The user will temporarily loose full control of their energy on the effected limb, which will last for one post after initial contact, before the effect wears off. The pain shall last for 2 posts after initial contact, the victim receiving low damage upon the pain wearing off.
It is at this level where the origin bullet begins to become a nightmarish little peccadillo to those who are hit by it. Upon making contact, the bullet will begin to affect the victim's body in its entirety, the burning sensation spreading throughout every last inch of it. It will be more difficult to control the energy throughout the body, especially at the spot where the bullet hit. It will take double the amount of energy to use an ability that requires energy. The pain lasts for 2 posts after initial contact, the damage brought by it being moderate. The energy effect lasts for 3 posts after initial contact before wearing off.
The effects from the last aforementioned tiers are the same on here, except augmented even further. The pain does severe damage over the span of 3 posts after initial contact. It costs triple the amount of energy to use an ability. This effect wears off 3 posts after initial contact.
(0-4 and up)
The effects of the origin bullet are the most devastating. Upon contact with the flesh, the body will be immersed in extreme amounts of pain, caused by the destruction of the control over the victim's energy, said energy causing extreme amounts of internal damage due to the power of severing causing an extreme amount of volatility, the damage accumulating over the span of 4 posts after initial contact. The victim will need to use three times the ordinary amount of energy in order to use an ability. This effect lasts for 5 posts after initial contact, before wearing off.
Weakness: Although the contender is most effective against the high and mighty, it is also hardest to be able to hit the high tiers successfully with an origin bullet. The stronger and more virtuous can dodge more easily, or defend against the bullet, far better than a being of mediocre power ever could. Couple that with the fact that it is time consuming and painful to create more Origin Bullets, and The Contender is proven not to be an infallible weapon.Calico M960
The Calico M960 is a submachine gun used by Kiritsugu and Maiya as a reserve side arm. It has a compact size similar to a large handgun with a reinforced plastic that makes it look more like a toy when compared to the Walther. It has a unique helical magazine that allows for fifty Parabellum rounds fired at a rate of seven hundred shots per minute. It is also equipped with a sound suppressor, laser sight, and foregrip. This weapon is used for stealth, and too be quite the pain for opponent's to recover from, including spiritual beings. What these bullets do is simple - they target the spiritual body through pressure points in the shinigami or their "Soul sleep" while it isn't instant like "Senka" used by Byakuya, the bullets can be likened to thousands if not many of hornet's stinging you at break-neck speed. Walther WA2000
The Walther WA2000 is a super heavyweight, semi-automatic sniper rifle of the highest class and performance that is the pinnacle of the latest electronic techniques. It costs $12,000 due to only being one of the 154 units produced. It is a rifle with a compact size measuring a little over ninety centimeters in length with the bullpup structure of the gunbarrel with a gas-operated magazine measuring at a length of 65 centimeters. It uses a .300 Winchester Magnum shell that has an effective range of one thousand meters. It doesn’t have the standard Smith & Bender sighting device, but rather he installed a pair of extra-large optic devices as a special scope mount fixed in parallel above the barrel and on the left flank.
The unit on the main side is the AN/PVS04, the latest night vision scope used by the US armed forces that has been banned from being exported to prevent the leaking of technology to other countries. It uses a super sensitive video camera that acts as a light electrical amplifier with a lens, raising and displaying a perfect brightness. Acting as an electronic "owl eye", it multiplies the range of vision by 3.6, allowing it to view up to six hundred yards under the moonlight or four hundred yards in starlight. The second unit is a specter IR heat detector scope installed as sideways support. It is also electronically equipped for night vision, but displays the subject's heat pattern on the image display rather than acting as an intensity amplifier. It can perceive temperature variations from -5 to 60°C up to two hundred meters with an 1.8 magnification.
The scopes are large and bulky, being the size of a plastic bottle and giving the compact gun an air of unbalance, which brings the total weight of the gun to over ten kilos. Even with the steady progress of miniaturization, they are still large even compared to standard optic devices. It is a weapon more suited to a support fire squad more than a sniping weapon, and its practical use is hindered. Despite the challenge, it was within his calculations in best managing to make use of the weapon. The joint use of both scopes allows him not only the ability to fight in darkness, but they have also been configured to allow him to face off against a ethereal being who possesses Reaitsu(Shinigami, Sugiura, Magus, etc.). Sensing the Reaitsu or spiritual energy pulses within the dark, it can fire upon them from hundreds of meters away without them being able to detect him at all. Needless to say, the bullets fired are harmful to spiritual beings and can do just as much damage as a normal bullet would to a human, making this the absolute ideal for Kiritsugu who fights dirty-handed.
