Gemstone Location:Left ankle
A large gem at 8ft tall, Jet stands tall when not moving. Heavy black boots adorn both feet, Though in combat, they noticably thicken and become sleek, with red lines down both sides, crossing over just at the base of the ankle. Slightly flared trousers cover his gem on his left ankle, a black Icosahedron gem embedded on the outer side. The trousers themselves are loose fitting, creases only behind the knees before reaching his waist. A thick grey belt with a silver oval buckle the only decoration, fitting snugly. A light grey undershirt covers his upper body, with an open black jacket resting over it.
He has short spiked brown hair, slanting slightly off to his left A goatee sits on his chin, neatly squared off. Thick eyebrows naturally slant inwards as his deep blue eyes seem to watch calmly as he studies his environment, a light smile on his face.
Personality: Ico is used to seeing things in black and white terms. Things that go against his trained beliefs are incorrect until proven otherwise. Organic life seems to operate outside of the constraints gems have and intrigues him. He has the bad habit of jumping to conclusions before having all the data to hand and can be rash in stressful situations, though he does aim to protect those he's allied to. Unless he feels like he's been betrayed, he still retains some loyalty to people.
Ico enjoys keeping things simple, however, the world is forever throwing complex things in his way. Sure, that corridor looks sleek and simple and narrow, but the various angles and flaws throw his thinking off track until he focusses on something else. He has taken to meditating to try and relax until something else comes along. His biggest dislike is being in the middle of a mess that can't be cleaned up. He will start sorting objects without meaning to sometimes.
Heat. Anything over a decent 60 degrees centigrade will have him backing up to avoid it. As long as the heat source is contained, he will keep a respectful but wary distance.
Weapon: Power boots. Function very much like garnet's gloves when summoned. Increases his kicking power in combat, and can be used to deflect projectiles within reason. Look like regular boots until summoned, at which point they thicken by an inch, the outer layer becoming shiny black with red glowing lines along the sides. Iso fights almost entirely with his legs and speed.
Ability name: Mirror finish
Ability 1: Can make a small area (1m^2) he touches frictionless for 20 seconds.
(Is used to allow him to skate over the ground by using the ability continuously on his own boots. Cannot do this for anyone else. Don't ask!)
Can reflect light from his body to create an illusion of himself within ten feet of him during which time he cannot be seen. If he looses concentration or attacks, the illusion will disappear. Cannot be round corners. Must have direct line of sight, but does not require him to be looking in that direction. Can last a maximum of 30 seconds of invisibility (up to 3 posts) and then cant be used again for a full 3 hours.
Fusions: None at present.
History:[/b] Being a rarity due to the difficulty of creating a Jet stone without the right tech,
Ico was a surprise when he emerged from one of the kindergartens. Homeworld took an interest in the location and shipped the odd gem out to a training facility while the kindergarten was upgraded. Ico was thoroughly confused and followed the only rules he had been taught. Homeworld being superior and the diamonds being absolutely all powerful. As the orders were coming from homeworld, it was assumed that the diamonds themselves authorized the transfer, and Ico spent a long time training with other combat gems before an inspection team came along. They were incredulous that a high ranking gem had been trained with lowly soldiers and he was quickly removed from the environment.
Homeworld nobility however never really suited him after such a regimented start, and he soon found himself falling into old routines, waking up at precise times and practicing his abilities, even though others would whisper and spread rumors when he did. He soon found such frivolities as the regular court meetings and ballroom dances as pointless and a waste of time, though he was forced to keep quiet, as to say otherwise would be disrespectful of the all knowing diamonds. He kept a stoic face but yearned for just one day where he was not expected to just look like he was enjoying meeting influential gems and chatting about the latest gossip.
Word of a world causing problems caught his ear one day. From the sounds of it, the conversion process had barely begun. Ico believing this to be a perfect place to spend a day or two recovering from the stifling court, snuck out to use a warp pad to the planet. For a few days, it was pure bliss. No stuffy clothes, no servants, no worries. It was only when he tried to go back that he found out he was stranded, the central warps all shattered. Now stuck on a planet where there were rumored to be not only rebels, but also some disease, he hides the fact he's nobility, his short combat training enough to fake him being one of them. Surely it won't take too long to get back... will it?
1) Fighting fit: Ico needs to find out what is going on and try blend in as best he can. With no way off the planet, he needs to try find other gems if he hopes to figure out what's going on and why the warp pads are broken.
2) Partners in crime: Ico is discovered to be nobility. Will the gems still trust him, or try oust him as a spy in their midst? And will Ico figure out who to trust in this?
3) Teamwork beats being alone: Ico finally trusts someone enough to fuse, but can anyone get past that tough exterior?
4) Cracking up : The two halves of Ico's life are literally beginning to tear him apart. Can he get a grip on being both nobility and a combat gem? Or is his destiny about to lay in pieces?
5) Catch me if you can : Ico's decision causes issues with his friends. Is he going to stick with them, or will they be left behind?
