    Humanoid Form: He stands at 5'4, with a build that's strong for someone his age, he already has a good muscles tone, with his skin being cool and metalic to the touch with a silver-gray color it overall feels like soft metal, his hair is black and similar to metal wire as such it's hard to cut so he keeps it tied up and out of the way, his eyes are a metalic gray with his pupils being a darker shade.

    Demonic Form: His demonic form stands at 10' tall from feet to the tip of the biggest horn, it's completely covered in metal of varying shades of gray and silver, has four strong insect legs, two clawed arms with his head having a spiked helmet like form around it with a larger spike like appendage on his back.


    Armis is unusual for a demon, he's generally a friendly, calm, polite and overall chivalrous person, he does his best to do good by society and the people around him. While these aspects aren't a front and do represent the good aspects of himself he's still a deeply troubled and conflicted young man, his violent inclinations disturb him greatly and he goes to great lengths to suppress them, afraid that even slipping once would doom him to a lifetime of violence. He hopes to use his shortened lifespan to the benefit of others, helping when he can even when he isn't sure how to, he can be quite stubborn at times in this endeavor, and despite their natural hostilities he does hope to build some semblance of familial bond with his siblings with him possibly being viewed as the "big brother" of the group, however he has a deep burning hatred of his mother and could potentially snap and attack her if circumstances brought them together. He's somewhat in denial of the fact that he enjoys violence on some level, he is particularly fond of the thrill of combat, he's doing his best to ignore and repress these aspects of himself.


    Active:
    •Metal Manipulation:
    He's able to morph any piece of metal he can pick up into any shape or form he can think of only limited by the amount of metal he has as he cannot add mass without using other pieces of metal, he can add a edge for weapons though. These objects retain the qualities of the metal he uses and so cannot be stronger or weaker than it was in its previous form. Metal damaged by rust are much harder to form and if damaged enough by rust they are completely useless. Currently he's limited to forming metal up to the size/mass of his humanoid body.
    •Demonic Form: He can shift into a larger demonic beetle form, it's metal hide is very thick and strong, able to stop a 9mm bullet with some bad bruises with his strength increasing to where he can lift two tons at the cost of his speed being significantly decreased, with him being twice as slow as other kids his age, his weight also makes him unable to run or jump.

    Passive:
    •Enhanced Physicality:
    In his humanoid form he's able to lift a ton and their body is very durable, skin is like decently strong metal, able to take a good beating with little damage, normal knives and swords will struggle penetrating him if used at human level strength but will have more success if swung which will likely leave him bruised and of course those with enhanced strength will find harming him easier. His blood is made up completely of mercury and he doesn't have a normal "scent" that can be picked up on, for example a wolf can pick up on an animal's scent during hunting that can identify the animal's species, Armis doesn't have such a scent, and will just smell of various metals.
    •Metal Consumption: He is completely unable to live off any food except for metal. He can eat any kind of metal to fulfill his needs, very high quality iron and steel can accelerate his healing process, eating some of either will make whatever injuries he currently has heal at twice the rate. He's able to bite through it quite easily, though this doesn't mean he's able to bite through other things as easily, his teeth just seem to be able to tear and chew metal easily for unknown reasons and he's able to identify any metal via taste and smell.
    •Family Quarrel: Armis was born with the ability to sense when his mother or siblings are nearby (around one "room" away), with this also comes an instinctual raising of his guard as if they were his enemies. This does not immediately cause physical conflict but he naturally feels as if they wish him harm.
    •Demonic Biology: He's immune to most diseases/viruses and poisons/toxins, however he unfortunately has a short lifespan and is likely to only live for twenty years or so, possibly even less, this is caused by instabilities in his biology that cannot currently be corrected, currently he's aging like a human.
    •Instinctual Knowledge: Armis was born with built in knowledge that formed after his birth. He has basic knowledge in math and speech that roughly matches his physical age as well as instinctual knowledge on the abilities of his siblings and mother, he also has the instinctual ability to understand and speak Latin and Welsh. He also retains memories from his time as an egg, this was caused by him becoming aware at a much early age than normal, with him having been able too see through his transparent egg at the events happening around him.
    •Demonic Languages: He's able to speak and understand any demonic based language.

    Weaknesses:
    •Holy Items:
    Like most demons Armis is vulnerable to holy items and similar such objects. A cross within five feet will steadily drain his strength as long as it's out in the open and can be seen, he'll feel the affects immediately, with his strength cut in half in about five minutes, with extended exposure getting worse and worse as time goes on, eventually rendering him unconscious. Holy water causes horrible burning sensations and cause a melting affect that heal much slower than other injuries and he's completely unable to enter holy ground (like a church or monastery) without explicit permission from whoever is in charge of it such as a priest or a monk.
    •Cold Temperatures: Having an insect like biology he does very poorly against the cold, it causes him to be even slower and cuts his reaction time down, the colder it is the slower he is, he also developes frostbite (or his version of it) much faster than the average human.
    •Water: As he's made of metal he's completely unable to swim as he instantly sinks, even shallower waters can be dangerous as it's difficult for him to recover if he falls over, as such drowning is a big danger for him. Extended exposure to water can also cause rust, making humid climates dangerous to him, in such cases he has to conduct self maintenance to ensue he stays dry.
    •Angelic Weapons: Weapons of angelic make are incredibly dangerous to him, they easily penetrate him, bypassing all defenses he has in both forms, even a dull angelic sword will cut through him easily.
    •Violent Urges: Armis has a natural inclination toward violence, both of his forms and most of his abilities are combat oriented, because of this he always has a sort of "tingle" in the back of his mind, a sort of devil on his shoulder that tells him that any situation can be handled via violence in one way or another. He greatly enjoys combat, it's a thrill that can be borderline addictive for him if not handled carefully. Overall these urges are easily ignored at first, but if not properly vented it will begin to build up, causing outbursts and even him attacking someone given the right circumstances.
    •Salt: Salt in its raw form can be pretty dangerous to him as it essentially acts as a acid, it causes a burning sensation and causes a melting like affect to his metalic skin.
    •Non-Metal Consumption: Armis can only eat metal, eating anything else will cause stomach problems with him always eventually throwing the eaten item up. Extended attempts at eating non metal can become toxic, leaving him very sick until all non metals are purged from his body. Eating plant material is especially dangerous, with it always being toxic to him.


    •Armis is essentially an orphan living off a school scholarship, he receives an allowance with which he's able to buy minor things for himself.


    •The circumstances leading to Armis' conception we're unusual to say the least. It started with a conflict within a civilization of mage knights living in hiding on Avalon.
    •One of said mages used black magic to summon the demon known as Nasci in order to use as a weapon against their enemies. Nasci having a love of violence and deaths saw it all as a chance to wreak havoc on the mortal plane.
    •The opposing faction created their own opposing living weapon to use against Nasci, a metal golem, known as the knight golem, powerful and skilled but ignorant and innocent to the world. Nasci used this to her advantage and seduced the golem.
    •The knight golem, realising his actions were a betrayal against all he believed in, aided the knights in killing Nasci, before vanishing himself.
    •Nasci being immortal just returned to hell for a time, the yet to be born Armis awaiting the time of his birth. Eventually Nasci relocated to Manta Carlos, and there she laid her eggs, Armis being among them. Their mother intended to devour them once born but the being known as Jackal arranged for the eggs to be removed and protected.
    •Unfortunately when they were born they began to devour each other, with Armis it was an instinctual urge that he had no control over, a need to quickly feed to grow, being unable to hold down flesh he had to seek out his siblings which had metal grown into their body for one reason or another.
    •Armis was possibly one of the first of his siblings to snap out of the feeding frenzy and was quickly horrified and what he'd done. He did his best to stop the feeding, being stronger than many of his siblings he was able to save a few and restrain some others, but there were just to many for him to make much of a difference.
    •The survivors were of course placed under the guardianship of the MC government and placed in the school to either be eventually adopted or live at the school. Armis has done his best to quickly adapt to the island, taking classes to help him as he starts his life, as short as it might be.
    •He quickly took an interest in knights and their moral codes, it all felt familiar to him, perhaps because of things he inherited from his father or just because of his desire for good. Either way he's begun using what be learns from it to guide his life.


    •Has two swords he created, secretly naming them Lancelot and Galahad.
    •Almost always has a book about knights checked out from the library, whether it be historical or fiction.
