                                                            Cassius Unite: The Villain by ZeroCyanX
Name: Cassius Unite/Zelios Cardine
Nicknames: "This body" (used by Zelios Cardine)
Age: 21
Species: Hedgehog
Gender: Male
Height: 4,3 ft/1,2 m
Weight: 114 lbs/52 kg
IQ: 180
Blood type: O
DOB: 22nd of November, 1993
Birth place: Unspecified small town in Southern Mobius
Residence: Unspecified
Occupation: Soul collector
Alignment: Evil

Basic stats:
Agility - 2
Speed - 2
Strength - 8
Defense - 5
Evasiveness - 2
Dexterity - 9
Intelligence - 9
Skill - 6

Special attacks:
    - Mayhem Mallet - Cassius pounds the ground with his hammer, making pieces of it fly in every direction and also sending a shock wave along the ground. Medium powerful, difficult to avoid.
    - Reflective Surface - Cassius creates a Surface with which he can reflect most projectiles and beams back at the enemy.

Special abilities:
    - Surface Generation - Cassius can create large, stationary, circle-shaped surfaces he can use for various things like boosting his mobility by leaping off them, blocking, attacking by hurling them at the opponent, taking a vantage point and other uses. These surfaces are an extension of the soul using them, and as such, are extremely durable and will not break under most circumstances. But if one were to break, it would destroy a part of the user's soul. Cassius, or rather Zelios, can maintain 20 surfaces, but can only create 5 at once.

    - Cassius, or rather Zelios, has only one goal, and as such he doesn't bother with anything else. He is lethally skilled with his Dual Hammer and is extremely ruthless when using it. He will not let anyone live if he gets a chance for a kill. Zelios is also a skilled alchemist, but limits his alchemy to his Surface Creation, as they using more of his soul in his current state would overload him.

    - Zelios is very well prepared for most opponents and has no reported blind spots. But his Dual Hammer has a rather long cool-down after a swing because of its weight. So Cassius is left vulnerable after a swing unless he can shield himself with the Surfaces he always has handy.

Personal facts:
    - Enemies: Sheng DiAngelo
    - Known relatives: Fares(sister, deceased)
    - Likes/Favorite activities: Searching for strong souls to add to his collection
    - Dislikes: Anything stopping him
    - Favorite color: Dark green, black

Cassius is a violent, merciless villain who crushes anyone he sees and adds their souls to his collection in order to become immortal. And that's about it.

Physical appearance:
    - Fur color: black (quills, torso and legs) and white (muzzle, the inside of the ears, arms and hands)
    - Eye color: unspecified

    - Black, long-sleeve shirt
    - Green assassin's hat
    - Green cape
    - Green, baggy pants
    - White gloves
    - Green and black shoes

Chaos abilities: None.

Theme song: The Garden of Carnage by KogeInu

Cassius and his sister Fares were orphaned at a very young age. Cassius was three and Fares was barely one year old. Their parents were murdered by an unknown person whose face only Cassius saw. That face, that twisted, murderous face would be engraved in his conscience for the rest of his days.
    Cassius was very protective of his sister, even after they made it to an orphanage. He would not let any of the nurses and other staff near Fares and demanded that he deliver any food, drinks and other miscellaneous things, such as books and magazines, himself. Even after Fares was old enough to do everything on her own Cassius would not let her leave their room unless he was with her. Contrary to what Cassius believed, the other orphans were very cruel to him and Fares. Cassius had hoped that the other kids would be kind to them because they shared similar pasts. But the rough life had made those kids just as rough and they soon started bullying Cassius and Fares, particularly Fares because Cassius was always protecting her. They called her weak, helpless and even worthless. Fares soon fell into depression and Cassius was furious. He would not have it any longer. But not being the most powerful kid in the orphanage he got badly hurt every time he tried to start a fight with the bullies. Soon it was Fares who had to stand up for Cassius and often they would both lie in their beds, both of them in very bad condition, often teeth missing, their faces filled with bruises and their bodies aching all over. The staff wasn't doing much to help either because the amount of kids in the orphanage was keeping them busy.
    When Cassius turned ten and Fares was just about to turn eight, they decided to leave the orphanage. They had had enough of the bullying and had come to an agreement about running away. They succeeded and were finally free of the horrible torture the orphanage had been for them.
    But their victory was short-lived as life outside of the orphanage turned out to be just as rough. They had nowhere to go so they made themselves a makeshift shelter near a small town. Cassius managed to find work in the town as a chores performer. He would clean people's houses, do their shopping for them, kill off pest problems etc. But while Cassius was working Fares found herself wondering around the town, searching for anything to pass her time with. Unfortunately she wondered into a back alley and was cornered by a young, approximately 12-year-old hedgehog boy. He pinned her against the wall and pulled out a knife. He threatened to kill her and do something horrible to her body afterwards. One could be right to assume necrophilia. Fares was terrified and let out a scream in desperation. Cassius happened to hear her scream when he was doing someone's shopping for them. He immediately dropped the shopping bags and rushed to the direction Fares' scream came from.
    Cassius arrived at the back alley just as the hedgehog was about to stab Fares. Cassius threw himself at the slightly older hedgehog, who in turn stabbed him in his left eye. Cassius stepped back, holding his eye and screaming in pain. The hedgehog then kicked him into a pile of trash. Cassius was starting to lose consciousness but could still clearly see the hedgehog approaching Fares again. Cassius muttered a desperate request for help.

    "Please... Someone... Anyone... Help us!"
    Suddenly Cassius heard a voice in his head. The voice was eerie and rough but it answered Cassius' plead.

    "I could offer my assistance, my boy. But it'll come at a price. Are ya willing to accept that?"
    Cassius was looking around in confusion, trying to find the person who was talking. But as he took a glance at his sister, he threw away all of his doubt and shouted.

    "I don't care what the price is! Just give me power to protect my sister!"
    Cassius felt an immense surge of power rush through him. He sprang up and leaped at the hedgehog. As if he had done so many times in his life, Cassius' right hand started to glow with a grey light. This grey light manifested itself into an enormous dual hammer. Cassius swung the giant weapon with deadly force, smashing the hedgehog boy's body into tiny bits and pieces. Fares screamed as parts of the hedgehog flew all around the alley. Cassius merely stood there, like it was everyday stuff for him. His hammer disappeared at a snap of his fingers and he took Fares' hand.

    "Come on, let's get out of here", he said, smiling at his sister, who was anything but smiling. She was terrified at what Cassius had just done. But more than that she was glad she was still alive, so she soon accepted what had happened. Cassius finished his chores and they returned to their shelter.
    Rumors about Cassius were spreading like a wildfire and soon no one wanted to hire Cassius to help them in their chores. No one wanted a murderous, hammer-wielding ten-year-old hedgehog touching their property. Soon it all escalated and Cassius and Fares were being discriminated against. Shops wouldn't sell them groceries, townsfolk burned down their shelter, which they had to rebuild after every time, and many times the townsfolk even tried directly killing them off. But every time Cassius killed a part of them which made them back away. Fares was getting more and more miserable. Cassius sensed this and he blamed the townsfolk, who had once been his friends, for Fares' state. So he attacked the town. He burned down every single house and killed every single person living in them. Fares watched in horror as her beloved brother was destroying mostly innocent people, even small children were subjected to his hammer. Not a single person survived Cassius' assault and soon the town was reduced to nothing but ash. Cassius had murdered every single one of them.
    They decided to move somewhere where the rumors hadn't reached yet. But it was useless. Everywhere they went they encountered more discrimination and hate. And every time Cassius would unleash his fury on the hateful people that mistreated them. He was growing more heartless by the minute. He even started physically abusing Fares, slapping her every time she told him to stop. But what had caused Cassius to behave this way? What had caused him to go from the protective but kindhearted young hedgehog to this merciless killing machine? This was the price Cassius had to pay for his deal with the voice in his head on that fateful day he killed that hedgehog boy.
    What had happened was the person who had given Cassius his powers poisoned his soul. This would cause Cassius' soul to slowly deteriorate, eventually leaving only a hollow shell. In exchange for power, Cassius would lose his soul, making him become more and more bloodthirsty after every kill he committed. He had killed so many people that only one small bit of his soul remained. Only one more kill would permanently destroy Cassius' soul. And, on his fifteenth birthday, he committed that final kill. But it wasn't a discriminatory jerk, it wasn't a member of a violent mob, it wasn't even an innocent small child. Instead...

    "Cassius! Stop it!"
    Cassius turned around just as he was about to attack another town to get his revenge on them. But out of nowhere, Fares grabbed his wrist and pulled with all her might to stop Cassius from attacking the town. Cassius glanced back, his eyes alight with a black flame that left only death in its wake.

    "You dare stop me from killing these people? They're just like the others, Fares! Discriminatory assholes that will stop at nothing to kill us off! Better them than us, Fares!"
    And with one swift strike, Cassius struck Fares down and brought his mighty hammer down on her. She shattered into tiny bits and pieces and Cassius stood there, the final part of his soul having been destroyed. He stood there, no motion in his limbs, no heartbeat in his chest, not thoughts running in his head. He was dead inside. Then, from the shadows, an old, hideous armadillo crawled out, cackling in evil joy.

    "So you've finally done it. You've murdered your only family, and in the process, you've rid your body of that soul of yours. Finally, my time has come! Youth shall be mine again!" Then the armadillo's body fell limp on the ground and a mist-like substance flew from its chest into Cassius'. Then, slowly, Cassius' eyes opened. But his eyes weren't his own. They were blood red and lacked pupils. He stretched his body and punched into his palm. He spoke with his own voice.

    "Finally... My second time is here! Fear, world, for Zelios is back!"
    From that day on, Cassius has been traveling with his showcased outfit on, murdering anyone that crosses his path. Zelios, the man who took over his soulless body, is in search for exceptionally strong souls to add to himself in order to achieve the status of an immortal. Strong souls are scattered everywhere around he world, but the strongest one Zelios has his sight set on is... Sheng DiAngelo. With the mighty Cassius as the body he inhabits, he has all the powers that Cassius had and Zelios' on power, surface creation.
    Surface creation is a power that allows one to create small, white circles anywhere in the user's line of sight. These circles can act as leverage, protection, a means to move on water and in the air, a means to climb a straight wall, or even as a large, deadly Frisbee of sorts. These surfaces are twice as large in diameter as Cassius and he can create up to five surfaces at a time but can hold a maximum of 20 in existence. To achieve this, he obviously needs to make five surfaces four separate times, leaving him vulnerable if he absolutely needs all 20.
    These surfaces are an extension of Zelios' soul and if enough are broken his soul will deteriorate and Cassius will once again become a hollow shell. This means Zelios needs to gather souls in order to keep his own intact. But as Zelios' soul is very, very powerful, it's very difficult to actually break a surface he has created. Zelios' surfaces can even be used to make enormous leaps that could be mistaken for the powers of flight.
    Cassius has a lot of strength, below average speed and good endurance. He can lift up to 300 pounds, run at 30 mph, about 150 mph slower than Sonic's scientifically calculated top speed, which is 179 mph. But he makes up for his slow speed with the surfaces he can use for getting around.
    Cassius is merciless, violent and should be avoided at all cost. If anyone crosses his path, they're basically dead if they don't have a reliable means of defending themselves.

Personal quote (Zelios): "Why am I after immortality? I want to see the world burn in front of my very eyes, begging to be saved and with no help on the way."

    - Cassius' outfit and name are references to the game Dust: An Elysian Tail.
    - Cassius is my newest character and was never meant to be created, but in the end I decided to make a villain character after all
    - Like Sheng, Cassius is an altered representation of me at a certain point in life. Cassius represents the me from when I was being bullied in elementary school, and more specifically, when the bullying was at its worst.
    - If Cassius and Zelios were to have famous voice actors, I would pick Nathan Vetterlein, the voice of the Scout from TF2 for Cassius, and Kevin Michael Richardson, who was the voice of Drek from the original Ratchet and Clank game, for Zelios.
    - I have yet to draw a portrait of Cassius, which is because he's the most difficult for me to draw out of all three of my characters.

ZeroCyanX's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Greetings, ladies, gentlemen and all in between! I am ZeroCyanX, but please call me Will. I am pleased to meet you all and I am equally pleased that you have stumbled upon my deviantArt page. If you are feeling generous, please click the +Watch button up there and you can see whatever artwork or journals I might submit in the future.

I am a dedicated Pokémon fan, which is going to show in my art in the near future. I enjoy both the causal and competitive aspect of the games, I don't particularly like the anime, I haven't read the manga, but the games are what keep me rooted with the franchise. I also love other franchises like Sonic, Megaman, particularly the Zero series, Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Brothers, Street Fighter and Scribblenauts, as well as some individual games such as Dust: An Elysian Tail and Team Fortress 2. If you are a fan of any of these franchises, hit me up! We'll have a grandle time! Also, if you have a sense of balance and you have a Sonic Fan Character, roleplays are always welcome on my end!

Not that many people know me yet, so it would probably be a good idea to give some light into the matter. Just who is this William Taylor?

-I am an only child, born to an older-than-average couple with a 14-year age gap. Both my parents were over 35 when I was born, my father was about 48. It was strange at first, but eventually I learned to accept it.
-My absolute favorite franchises are Pokémon, Legend of Zelda and Super Smash Bros.
-My favorite Pokémon game is Pokémon Platinum.
-I am the last person to know about anything game-related, despite being a huge video game fan.

-I am a fanatic of Chinese and Greek mythology.
-I have a YouTube channel but I'm soon moving to a new one to make video game countdowns and Pokémon-related content.
-As a quote from a very good friend of mine, :iconbetakatana:, "Baldy McNosehair is never going out of style."
-My favorite Pokémon is Umbreon.

-I hate event Pokémon and Shiny Pokémon because they have fake value. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-The only two video game couples I support are ZeroXCiel and Silvaze.

(Couldn't find a ZeroXCiel fan button. If someone has made it or could make one, I will love you forever. Not romantically, though.)

-I don't favorite sexual material for everybody to see.
-I think patriotism is stupid. If you want a further explanation, ask me.
-I like disturbing Pokédex entries.
-I have a knack for languages. If anyone wants to speak any Swedish, German or Spanish with me, I'm open to it.
-if you're interested in Finland, ask me. I'd be glad to tell you more.
-I have three Sonic fan characters, one of each alliance: hero, neutral and villain.
-I love British, self-satirizing humor.
-I think MLP is cute, though I don't consider myself a brony by ANY definition of the word.

-I like some Vocaloid artists, particularly Megurine Luka.

-I think Knuckles' design change in Sonic Boom is awesome.
-I think Blockade Entertainment screwed up Murray for the Sly Cooper movie.
-I kill snipers in Team Fortress 2 in my spare time.
-I refresh my inbox every five seconds.
-This text is going on for too long.

Now for the rest of what I'm a fan of:…
