Codename: 10 - the Key Holder of the 10th GateKey: Bamboo NecklaceWeapon: TonfaPower: EarthAbility: Gravity, Area Manipulation, Nullification Story:
As a member of the outlaw, 10 is wanted by the government. She grew up in the community where people are against the government, and every month at least 3 people she knows will be imprisoned or punished. One distinctive characteristic of people in 10's community is that everyone has blonde hair, while the majority of people who are considered civilised have dark brown hair. Since she can't change the way people see her, she lives up to the role she is assigned - the outlaw. 10 knows that the kay will be achieved by two means - it will be given to a great hero or it will taken after the government is dethroned. History of the Character:
10 is based on the sign of Capricorn and the 10th House placement - the house of order and high achievement. So, 10 represents a restless order-keeper. Originally, I designed this character to be calmer and more stoic to represent Capricorn's characteristic. I still keeps those personalities, but I decide to make her more 'antiheroic' to make this character less flat. I think it'd be more interesting to have a character who can keep the order in unconventional way. I also designed 10 with traditional Chinese hairstyle and dark brown hair. After I changed the mentioned detail about her, I decided to give her blonde hair to play with a typical idea of East and Southeast Asian society that perceives 'blonde' hair as immature, foreign and outrageous. Actually, some Asian people do have lighter hair colour, such as some people in Mongolia have light brown or blonde hair.
About her ability, 10 can manipulate gravity and ground within limited area. She needs to draw the line on the ground and then control the environment within the circle until the line is gone. While, her power is quite powerful, it requires time to finish the circle. Besides gravity and area manipulation, 10 can nullify power within the circle and force enemies to use only hand-to-hand combat, and similar the mentioned ability this nullification will last for limited time. To maintain order in society, we have to give up privilege and restrict some freedom. And I think, her nullification can represent her reference quite well.
