Originally I was gonna use Kai for Sion's School of Misfit SPP's as well, to go along with Aurora Steele above. I believe I had her surname as Sanchez instead of Alvarado at that time, and I had a slightly different appearance for her as well. But I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted from Kai from that stage, and by the time I had any ideas... I think you know what happened already. But anyway, needless to say that I was dismayed, but thankfully I was able to bring Kai into Golden Gate Empire: Dreams of Grandeur instead, where she actually got the chance to shine... to some extent.
Yes, Kai. Some. And what the hell're you doing here, anyway? You're supposed to be fighting Rawal back in the Church of Jubilee.
"Oh that? That's been paused at the moment. We're still waiting on that other writer to let us know if that geezer actually took a hit."
We are, too. I'll see what's going on after I've finished here, but first...
As you guys may have noticed, I'd given Kai the ability to make momentary breaks through the fourth wall. I contemplated on mentioning it as one of her four abilities that our characters, but I didn't really think it would achieve anything useful, so I kept it a secret until now. The idea came to me when Cowcow filled his app for Bethany in a unique way, making it look as though Bethany herself was freely giving out information about herself. Seeing that, I thought I'd try it for myself.
"And now you know why I've been spouting out all this sheet about myself while Stalfos usually writes it down for all the other characters he writes up. He even made me give out my BWH ratio, the damn sleaze! And all because I wanted that fourth wall awareness. Not to mention that he wound up under-powering me through locking my Divine Judgement spell and telling me he'd keep it locked until the first round at the very least. I'm pretty sure he regrets making that play now, and I hope that's actually the case because it really pissed me off. I could have used that Divine Judgement right about now!"
To be fair Kai, I wasn't expecting to have such a bad match-up as Rawal is for you right of the bat. Neither of us were.
Honestly, the best match-up I could've possibly hoped for was Kai against Bethany, since the two of them would've been at the lowest tier out of all eight of the finalists. I'd like to think Kai would've won that specific match-up in the end, but I'd prefer it if we actually had the chance to play it out so I'd know for sure. Another match-up I wouldn't have minded Kai having would be against Lace, which I believe was the preferred match all-round. But I guess that's what RNGesus does best; screw over anything and everything at any single point of time. Oh well; all things considered, the current battle is actually going well for Kai despite the natural disadvantage. True, she owes a lot of her survival of this round to her alliance with Choros, the stage boss of the Church of Jubilee. But I just had Kai launch an attack (specifically a shotgun blast) at Rawal so then it feels less like the win is being outright handed to her, but we'll see what that actually accomplishes.
Oh, and for those of you who care, the other significant bad match-up for Kai would be against Mango, whose long reach practically negates any advantage that the shotgun normally has against melee characters and prevents Kai from dealing any meaningful damage without the risk of being swiped herself. Though there's no way in hell we'd actually get to see such a fight actually go down now, is there, Kai?
"You kidding? I'd have surrendered right of the bat if it means getting away from that reeking jabroni!"
Uh huh. Anyway, you better get back into position. If this certain other writer we're currently waiting on actually manages a post before you get back, I might have to write a lil' something about you somehow being caught out of bounds on the arena...
"Seriousl-(?) ...yeah, alright."
And you guys stay tuned for next week's character, another one from my collection of personally hosted RPs.
