Information

Spirit Ally: Irish Warlord "Niall" (Human spirit)
Shamanic Medium: Longsword "Emerald Saint"
Furyoku: ?

Description: Average height, short brown hair (though he does let it grow a lot), glasses, and a bit of a spare tire around his gut. Despite appearances, he has a decent amount of strength.

Personality: Very open-minded, caring and kind, but does have a bit of a temper. Due to childhood, he constantly references things from movies, games, and anime for about any situation. As a brother, he grew up very protective of his sisters and is willing to give anything for his friends.

History

Born in Colorado, Brian has lived in America his whole life. He spent his childhood playing video games, and constantly sitting in front of the TV watching every single movie and cartoon he was allowed to watch. As he grew up, he learned that he, and other members of his family had some kind of strange connection to the paranormal.

His youngest sister would know things without being told, his oldest sister had seen a spirit of a Civil War soldier in her home from the outside, and he himself would see things that wouldn’t be there moments before or have strange, prophetic dreams.

In his teen years, thanks to his curiosity about the unknown (thanks to movies such as Ghostbusters and Poltergeist), Brian began to read up on the supernatural, especially spirits. Shortly after, he was able to see these spirits much more clearly and even make contact with them. As he traveled around, he came across a strange Native American who told him that his abilities were that of a Shaman.

Most people would be skeptical, but due to his studies, Brian believed that he had this power. Once he learned the basics from his Native American guide, Brian set out to search for that one spirit to be his partner, the one spirit that would aid him in his journey. Following a hunch, he traveled to Ireland, the land of his ancestors. He explored the green countryside of the Emerald Isle and when he came across a castle ruin, he found the lingering spirit of a warrior called Niall. Shortly after meeting Niall, Brian knew this was his guardian spirit partner.

He left Ireland with the spirit and a medium, a long sword called "Emerald Saint", to enter the much talked about Shaman King Tournament. However, there were two problems. One: the tournament was already going on, but was postponed. Two: he didn’t have a team, the right strength or skills, or the qualifications from the Shaman Tournament committee. Now, he travels around the world, trying to grow stronger and gain a team of strong shamans before the tournament starts up again, in hopes of being in this one. While others are wanting to be Shaman King in the tournament, Brian only wishes to see how far he can go...because being the Shaman King means deciding the fate of the world, and Brian thinks that is WAY too much pressure.

Etc.

Favorite food: Chicken, cheesy rice, popcorn, deer/elk/cow meat, turkey,  pasta, and junk food.

Least Favorite Food: Mexican food (except nachos and certain dishes), green veggies, and black-eyed peas most of all.

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

Shamanic Spells and Techniques

Hyoi Gattai (Spirit Unity): Brian calls forth Niall into the form of a Spirit Ball (Hitodama) and merges with him by shoving him into his stomach. With this technique, Brian can use Niall’s knowledge and fighting techniques in battles against other Shaman.

Eerie Slash: Together, Brian and Niall unless either a vertical or horizontal beam of green energy at their opponent. The name "eerie" is a pun, referencing to the fact that some people call the Shores of Ireland, the Shores of Eerie instead of it’s proper name while the color of the beam is mostly connected to the Emerald Isle.

Eerie Cross Slash: A slight variation of Eerie Slash, Brian can create two beams of green energy in the shape of a cross to do double the power.
This is my Shaman King OC profile, for my up and coming Shaman King fanfic. I've based this character on myself with some modifications, so it's not entirely all about my true life.

The reason I chose a spirit of an irish warrior called Niall is because after my grandmother did research on our family tree, my family belongs to High King Niall of Ireland, who was actually responsible for Saint Patrick. No lie.

Brian's medium and his spirit partner, are references to that fact, though in the fic, he is not really a descendant of Niall.

I'm aware that he only has 3 skills, but that is because he just knows the basics. As my character develops in my story, I will add on what he learns.

sure, once i think up something for him. i do have question tho: even though you said a long sword for him, if this spirit idea i have for him doesn't work out for a long sword, would you mind at all if I made him have spirit claws? make it more of an homage to his werewolf traits in your fic. If you still wish long sword, i shall do it, but i thought i should ask

You could do the spirit claws! I think that's a great idea!

cool, thanks for that. at least i think animal spirit shamans do that..i'll have to look it up again, xD. but it's good with animals cuz even tho they spirits, they act like normal animals, pretty much.

Uhm...what should we call the wolf? Something that's a reference to a famous werewolf flick, legend, or just w/e i can think of? cuz i think i can find a decent legend with a wolf in it.

Fenrir, the wolf from Norse mythology.

At least that's just my opinion.

Hey you have what 90% OC writers don't have, believability. You put your OCs on par with an even amount of spot light in your work and that dose take quite a bit of talent so hat's off too ya! That and both you and Phantom make 4kids dubs LIKEABLE and that is a work of genius in its self.
