Shaman King OC
Name: Brian Berg
D.O.B : May 10, 1987
Occupation: Movie Buff/Video Gamer/Shaman
Spirit Ally: Irish Warlord "Niall" (Human spirit)
Shamanic Medium: Longsword "Emerald Saint"
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.
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 wouldnt 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 didnt 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.
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 Nialls 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 its 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.
