Bickslow [Fairy Tail: Battle of Magic]

"A man with strong tendency of laughing out loud maniacally and sticking his tongue out.
He enjoys fighting and dislikes weak people."

— Description

Bickslow is a playable character on Fairy Tail: Battle of Magic, a Fairy Tail fanmade Multiplayer Open Role Playing Game project which I create. Bickslow enjoys fighting and dislikes weak people, seen when he said that he didn't consider weak people to be his friend. Beside that fact, he also have a lighthearted and joking personality.

Character Information
Bickslow using Human Possesion as his primary magic, a type of Seith Magic that allows Bickslow to seal wandering souls inside objects and manipulate them as he wishes. The so-called "dolls" which are produced by this union can serve a variety of purposes such as offense, defense and even transportation. They are capable of freely floating and maneuvering in the air and their main offensive ability consists of firing barrages of powerful blasts.

Character Appearance
Bickslow is a tall man with a mildly muscular build. His hair is blue and black in color, with the black parts being almost shaven, and the blue ones, occupying the top and the sides of his head, being much longer, with the one of the top being styled in a mohawk-like crest, and the ones on the sides pointing backwards.

Bickslow’s upper body is covered in a dark, mildly fitting cloth covered in vertical white stripes which extend up to his head to cover it in a tight hood, exposing only his hands and face. The upper part of the latter is almost always obscured by a metal visor reminiscent of a medieval sallet, which comes covered with eight small, elongated holes with four of them in front of each of his eyes, allowing him to see, but preventing others from being affected by his Figure Eyes. He wears large armbands and he has large shoulder pads each with skulls on its center. His waist is circled by a simple dark band which holds up a massive waistguard made of cloth which comes in four long, light-colored pieces, each adorned by a dark “X”, reaching down below his knees.

Recently, I'm cosidering to make Figure Eyes as his form of Hyper Mode, which also giving him extra MP when on that form. I include Crush on his additional ability list which allow him to auto kill his target on explosion when target HP is below 1000 point.
In the next revision, I made Figure Eyes as his Hyper Mode form which make him take a full control of his doll at his own will and make them has a chance to block melee attack and able to do a critical damage to enemy. And obviously, Baryon Formation is decided as his Hyper Strike of choice - a powerful magical beam that deal damage based from Bickslow's maximum MP. The more maximum MP he have, the more damage his Hyper Strike can deal. In addition, I also include Zero Distance Baryo Formation as Bickslow exclusive additional ability - a single target melee magic that deal 200% of Bickslow's damage.
