The day the demon came into my arm... my life was changed forever!

In one hand, there are a number of warriors who wielded swords, while on the other hand, they wielded a shield. In this country, for a long time, it has been this way for Slayers to fight in Arad. However, they only appear to have one weapon in their hand, that seems to have a tweak. Perhaps, the reason for this 'tweak' is due to their twisted left hand. These arms would fade to black, causing the left hand to have ghost-like symptoms. As their left hand would become an inconvenience, causing the infected Slayers not to be able to use their swords or shields. Furthermore, the only way to control the demon in their arm, was to tie chains on their left hand, to suppress their fight against the demon.

Breakout of this Ghost Demon began occurring 50 years ago in Arad. As they studied the infected Slayers, even the top scholars have found that these horrible symptoms were not caused by genetics or even something found in a local area. Anyone - including you - and including an arm, can be cursed by the black devil's hand at any time of your life. There was almost no escaping it. It came to the point where you being caught by the ghost demon's grasp was just a common thing to happen.

As the Slayers lived on, multidisciplinary physicians worked hard to treat the 'Ghost Demon' disease in different ways. The Slayers refused to listen to their fate and decided to focus on how to deal with the removal of the 'Ghost Demon' themselves, and work entirely on the use of good weapons. These Slayers that saw the reality of obtaining good weapons in their hands and to fight off the 'Ghost Demon' entirely, were named "Weapon Masters". There are even other Slayers who wanted to attract the power of demons and loosened the chains on their left arm, to communicate more with these ghosts. These Slayers were named "Soul Benders".

There now seemed to be ways to combat the 'Ghost Demon' syndrome, mostly for the better of the Slayer, however, there were some that were not so lucky.

There are even Slayers that are caught in the Kazan syndrome, which are rare cases for such thing to happen. In general, the risk of such a syndrome is extremely slim, but with the Kazan Syndrome, the people increased their risk to become 100 times stronger than the other Slayers. By doing this, the Slayer caused himself to lead a non-social life and form a pattern of a dark life. These slayers were called the "Berserker".


The Slayer derives his power from the demon Kazan, who dwells within his arm, locking this warrior in a perpetual struggle to keep from being possessed completely. Only the thick, mystical chains shackled to him keep the dark parasite at bay. As a consequence, the Slayer can only wield a weapon in one hand, a disability he has fashioned into a distinct advantage, doing with one arm what most other swordsmen would need two to do. He primarily attacks his enemies with swords and blunt weapons, but can also, when in a dungeon high in demonic energy, call upon the dark power within him to cast magic spells. This dark power also gives the Slayer a particularly high resistance to Shadow energy, but unusually low resistance to Light energy.

Details

    • Though having the right weapon helps your skills of choice nicely.

Subclass Advancement

Blade Master - An quick and versatile physical class able to use various weapons, Including LightSabres to their fullest. His combo ability is among the best of the Slayer subclasses and he's able to do dps and burst rather well. While not the toughest Slayer Subclass, his light armor use emphasizes his speed while providing some defense.

Soul Bender - A magic class that can do dark damage and/or AoE Debuffing support. He's usually associated with the Katana, though Short Swords are sometimes used. Since he uses cloth armor, showing some caution is advised when not ghost walking.

Berserker - A physical class that focuses on damage at the cost of his HP with supporting skills to enhance it and to restore the spent HP. He also boasts pretty high defense due to heavy armor and skills like Diehard. He's mainly associated with Zanbatos, though Katanas and Bludgeons have been seen used by some.

Asura - A much more direct Magic class, able to attack with a mix of elements. He uses Short Swords mainly for his attacks. Are also much more survivable, with naturally high avoidability, as well as Plate Armor for defense.
