Inventory

  • Cell Phone(s): Naturally, Aster has a cell phone to keep himself attached to the natural world around him. In truth - he actually has multiple. He has two smart phones, one that he uses for personal use and one that he uses for business purposes, and then an old-time burner flip phone that he uses to keep in contact with the Dark Alliance.
  • Playing Cards: Aster carries around a deck of cards that was specifically crafted for him. The edges of the cards are tipped with a thin metal that allows him to manipulate the cards when he is Danburite and/or the Phantom Ace, and are otherwise styled to subtly reference the Dark Alliance, with each special card being a reference to the leadership of the Alliance.

Soldier

NAME: Danburite
ELEMENT: Metal/Love

Powers

  • Magnetokinesis: As Danburite Aster has the ability to manipulate and control metal and, largely, metallic objects. He is able to move metal telekinetically, meaning that he is simply able to do it with his mind, as well as reduce it into metallic states and reshape metallic objects to be different items.
  • Empathy: As a Venutian, Danburite has the ability to sense and manipulate the emotional state of others. He is keenly aware of what people are feeling, and he is able to influence their emotions in one direction or another - something that he normally uses to effect love, lust, and pleasure centers of the brain but it is not limited to that.
  • Four Card Shot: Danburite - or "Phantom Ace" - uses the cards in his deck to attack his enemies. Using the metal tips of the cards Danburite is able to direct them in whatever way that he likes, and often uses them in the same fashion as missiles that have become locked on to a specific target. Using his magnetokinesis Danburite turns the sharp metallic edges into blades.
  • Venusian Card Shock: Using his electromagnetic abilities Aster forms what appears to be a deck of cards with his magnetokinesis. When someone gets close to them, they explode, causing an explosion of pure energy.
  • Heartbreak Shock: Danburite uses his empathic powers to violently bring forward the negative emotions of anyone that he chooses within his line of sight. This attack can do a number of things - it can either make someone depressed, angry, or what have you either causing them to be crippled with their emotions or go through a berserker rage or something similar.
  • EM Pulse: An electromagnetic pulse that knocks out any and all electricity within a five mile radius. This can also disorient and potentially harm enemies within the radius as well, since it disrupts the human body's own natural electrical current.

History

Danburite's story starts thousands of years ago, during the Silver Millennium. Venutian by heritage and named Adonis, he had never exactly been very well known or comparatively special when measured against any of the royals or their knights. At first, Adonis had simply been a normal citizen of Venus, but it didn't take long for his path to lead to him becoming a soldier, and when it did his life would change forever. When the Dark Kingdom attacked the Moon Kingdom, Adonis was deployed to help protect Prince Endymion, and it was there that he first met Sailor Venus. The two never became what Adonis would have called close, but upon seeing his princess in battle he became infatuated with her.

Adonis was never able to sort through his infatuation with the princess. Was it real love? Was it a crush? Something else altogether? Venus had always seemed more enamored with one of the Four Holy Kings of the Golden Kingdom, Kunzite, and as a result Adonis simply could never bring himself to approach the princess. Plus, she was his princess: that meant that she was better than him in every single way imaginable. He was born as a commoner on her planet, and she held the highest status. So Adonis appreciated and served his princess from afar for the time that they were close, and for the time that he would still have in this lifetime. Like the rest of the Silver Millennium, Adonis died during the war between the Dark Kingdom and the Silver Millennium.

However, as a result of Queen Serenity's sacrifice at the close of the war, Adonis and many other members of the Silver Millennium were reincarnated on Earth, in the 21st century. Adonis was revived in the form of Aster Schmidt, who would go on to become known as a young actor working with a certain mega-corporation. He was also among the first people that was recruited by Queen Metaria and Queen Beryl to become a part of the Dark Kingdom, his former memories restored and his infatuation with Sailor Venus twisted into a strange and malicious obsession. Danburite was placed in charge of the Dark Agency, and for the next few months would effectively be in charge of making Venus's new life a living hell.

But it was not to be. Venus would defeat Danburite - but in a stroke of luck, Aster would once again get another chance. The reincarnation of Princess Serenity would do the same thing as her mother and bring back everyone that had previously been lost, and that included Aster. In his new life Aster survived his affiliation with the Dark Kingdom, living past the age of fourteen and becoming well known as an actor. He moved to Crystal City during it's rise, shortly after the coronation of the Neo Queen and her king, but his life would prove to always fall into a cyclical nature.

When Queen Metaria and the rest of the Dark Kingdom were returned in the present, Danburite was once again activated. Though he no longer possesses an obsession with Sailor Venus, he does harbor resentment toward her and toward the rest of the White Moon. Along with the other Planetary Knights, Danburite has taken his role to heart, though he has his doubts.

Writing Sample

Aster had his questions about the Dark Alliance. He was loyal to the Dark Kingdom, to Beryl and to Metaria, that was true - even if neither of them had exactly proven themselves to be very good to their subordinates. He understood that the fact of the matter was that what Lilith Rey said went when it came to the rest of the Dark Kingdom, and that she believed in this alliance - at least in the short term. But the Black Moon Clan were radicals, even moreso than the Dark Kingdom and the Dark Agency had been in the past. They were a factor that Aster was unsure could be controlled, a chaotic presence that he wasn't sure was a good investment.

That said, the power that some of them possessed was unlike some of the things that Aster had ever seen. He was capable of doing some pretty spectacular things - he could control metal! But he had heard talk of the Prince's evil eye, the fact that apparently the woman known as Green Emerald not only had subordinates that followed her every order but could turn her own extremities into a monstrous form that enhanced her abilities. They were simply humans, for lack of a better explanation; that their Wiseman could give them such powers was fascinating. The rumblings about the malefic black crystal having certain capabilities had to have been true.

So, at least for now, Danburite was willing to cooperate. He was going to hold the Black Moon at arm's length, and at the very least keep an eye on the others; there was something about that Morrigan, said to be the ancient queen Nehelenia, that he wasn't sure he trusted. She was the one that orchestrated the whole alliance, and that gave her pull over even Metaria that Aster wasn't sure he liked yet. The entire situation had managed to make him uncomfortable, at least in one way, but... he was a dutiful soldier, and it wasn't the first time that he wasn't wholly comfortable with the things they had been doing. Especially not lately.

Either way. The Alliance was making things official, and apparently the Black Moon's Prince Demande was getting a promotion. And it was coming up soon. A base was in the cards, though Danburite didn't know where that was going to be or what they were thinking about with it, but it had been requested that the Alliance... make things a little chaotic. Throw the Sailor Guardians off of their trail. The day before Green Emerald attacked Infinity Tower, assisted by one of the Dark Kingdom's own soldiers. Today it was Danburite's turn.

The Millennial Crystal Museum was entirely dedicated to the Silver Millennium. It had been established in Crystal City a number of years ago, and was filled with artefacts that came from the Silver Millennium itself; either found by archeologists or donated by the Sailor Guardians and likeminded individuals. The intent was to teach the normal humans about that time long ago that, for most people on this planet, had been long forgotten. It was a perfectly notable target location for what the Alliance had been looking for.

Aster, in full uniform as Danburite, stood at the door of the museum surrounded by numerous foot soldiers and accompanied by another so-called general of the Alliance. "Cause as much chaos as possible," Danburite said, looking at his subordinates. "We want these people to be scared. We want this to be all over the news. And most of all, we want to attract attention."
