Character Design Contest ♯144- Earth

Ok guys, we're on to our final week of the Four Classical Elements theme and, therefore, on to the final element.  Now this one is the most ambiguous of the four in terms of definition. Is it just the earth, as in the ground beneath our feet, does it extend to rocks and therefore mountains and the like, or does it go even further to include plant-life as well? I'll let you decide I think. It's more interesting that way.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

If you don’t know how to enter, there’s a handy little diagram below the jump.

    My entry this week isn’t a hero nor a villain, but a sidekick: Paracelsus.

    Living in a secret chamber under Stonehenge, this stone golem has dedicated his life to protect his master, a powerful wizard, from any danger, until the wizard eventually died of old age, leaving Paracelsus all alone. After the young mage Arkanum encountered the place, he decided to “adopt” the magic construct.

    Despite looking quite intimidating, Paracelsus is nice and peaceful, and will do no harm to anyone unless Arkanum is in danger. He’s also very intelligent, having read all the books from his former master’s library. He serves as both bodyguard and butler to Arkanum, much to the mage’s discomfort since he sees the gentle giant as a friend rather than a servant.

    “King Val-Tree, The Earth Demon”…He is king of the race of living trees that have been taken over by demons. They slither along the ground with their roots. As king he has the ability to control the earth element to his will. This includes being able to make rock, earth, and organic formations to form weapons or walls. Can possess and control other earthen objects like plants and trees. Has telekinetic control over any earthen material.

    “The Wisdom Tree,” is a very old tree that contains the spirit of a very wise man, rumored to be Daedalus, but I believe otherwise.

    Quake Kid

    (I almost didn’t get this one done due to rain and internet problems.)

    José Nazca grew up in Santigo Chile, a nervous jittery child with a stutter, after several violent “fits” he was eventually diagnosed with epilepsy.
    He was perscribed medication, but this seemed to do little to help and his seizure’s continued.
    All sorts of doctors put José through all sorts of medication and proceedures.
    José’s mother turned to holistic forms of healing and the boy started meditation.
    Soon after José started his meditation routine he celebrated his 13th birthday.
    Shortly thereafter José seemed to detect when his seizures were about to strike and through his meditation would try to control them, this seeme to work however he somehow externalized his seizure producing waves of vibrations emenating from him as if externalizing his seizures into localized tremors.
    José’s mother, Maria, while going through José’s medical charts she kept of his seizures was talking to Luis, José;s seizmologist father, while he was working on timetables of tremors and earthquakes, noticed the corilation of the events. José would usually have a seizure the day before a tremor, the intesity of the tremor often refecting in the intesity of the seizure
    With more and more practice José discovered he could cause tremors and minor earthquakes and the more he did this, the farther between his seizures happened.
    He soon learned through meditation he could detect tremors and earthquakes, and even counter them to some degree.
