Oni

37015779.pngLarge, humanoid Youkai with horns atop their head known for their wild fighting spirit. Oni traditionally come in three colors and three sizes, with varying abilities for each. All descend, however, from Shuten-doji, the ruler of the Oni who lives atop Mount Ooe in Tamba province. It is said that the closer an Oni’s bloodline is to the legendary Shuten-doji, the more powerful they are.
The most commonly known type of Oni are the Monstrous variant. These creatures are usually about fifteen feet tall, though there is no known limit for their size. Monstrous Oni, known colloquially as Eastern Oni, have intelligence barely above that of an animal, and live only for destruction and violence. They are notoriously hard to kill, and their wounds regenerate quickly. A single monstrous Oni on a rampage is an event on par with a natural disaster such as a tornado, tsunami, or earthquake, and is about as hard to stop. This variant is usually found in the lands to the East of Tamba and Mount Ooe.
Standing slightly shorter than their monstrous counterparts are Giant Oni. This variant of Oni can be quite intelligent, and sometimes adopt civilized behavior. They still hold a great lust for battle, however, and with their ten-foot-tall, muscular frames, they are well able to fulfill it. Giant Oni often work as mercenaries, striking a balance between their bloodthirsty nature and their greater disposition toward civilization.
The third, and final variant is the Civilized Oni, colloquially known as the Western Oni, who traditionally populate the Chugoku area west of Mount Ooe. These Oni stand at about the same height as, or just taller than a human, and have similar, though often muscular physiques. Civilized Oni, as their name implies are as intelligent as humans and naturally come together in civilizations of their own. Though they still enjoy battle, and have great strength and resilience for their size, they often grow out of their desire for battle in their youth, and become more thoughtful and level-headed as they age. Some older Civilized Oni have even taken human names and begun participating in the politics of Japan. Such individuals are treated as having equal rights to humans by the Shogunate.
All Oni, despite their size, vary in color. Red Oni have scarlet, burnt, or purplish skin, and have an elemental affinity toward fire, taking less damage from the element and sometimes able to conjure it for their attacks. Blue Oni are similar, but hold an affinity toward air and electricity. In myth, their appearance is linked to the coming of storms. Colorless Oni have the same skin tone as humans, often ranging from pale to dusty brown, and have no elemental affinities. These types of Oni regenerate slightly faster than their counterparts, however. Oni color is somewhat linked to size, with Civilized Oni often being colorless, and Monstrous Oni always being either red or blue.

When making an Oni character, first determine size and color, then apply the appropriate modifications at no DP cost.
