Koudoshin's Abilities in Full:
Koudoshin will grant her wielder the ability to manipulate and control the earth, as well as earth based reiatsu. The user is obviously at their strongest when they are fighting on the ground as they have more things to utilize to their advantage. The main ways of doing this are shown off in a few ways, the primary two being Yurasu Renda and Kouonami. Yurasu Renda is when the wielder breaks the earth around them, and sends it up to surround them, these chuncks of earth are generally rock or mud balls that are then launched at their opponent at rapid speeds. They are numerous and difficult to evade, and if they land a blow they can inflict some pretty sever physical injuries depending on where they hit. Koudonami is when the wielder slams Koudoshin's blade into the ground and creates a wave like effect rippling through about 300 meters of the ground in any given directions. The Emeraduo Kousen is a bit different from these abilities, in that it draws the power from the green surrounding the wielder, the more green around them, the more they can draw upon and unleash a powerful blast of earthly green reiatsu mixed with their own. The beam is at three levels the first being a rapid low charge blast that can be done almost anywhere, the second draws upon roughly 30% of a small forested area and can unleash a fair level of power and the third would draw energy from an entire mountainside forest and unleash a beam that displays that same level of power.
When Koudoshin's wielder enters their true release, it signifies that they have made the contract to her 4 Claws of the Dragon. Unlike Raikoushin's 4 Runes and Ankokoushin's 4 Fangs these claws have a great deal of power locked within them, they are similar to both the styles but different in a few key ways. Defense isn't lessened as it is in The 4 Fangs, but it is actually increased in The 4 Claws. And unlike The 4 Runes, defending from a powerful strike will still activate the next stage if the blow met the same level that it needed. Koudoshin was the creator of The 4 Claws, along with her mate who was the self proclaimed Dragon King who moved to become the Platinum Dragon, Bahamut. The 4 Claws reflect Koudoshin's original path of The 4 Fangs, as well as Bahamuts Ruinic Wheel style, these were created for the sole use between the sisters of the Elemental Hearts. While the brothers picked sides and bickered with one and other, the sisters united mostly under a mutual agreement. Aisushin may have been a brat once, but she grew up eventually, and all the sisters still get along, unlike all of the brothers. The 4 Claws requires the wielder to have suffered a blow equal to what they are about to unleash, with the more powerful attacks, the more powerful a blow they must suffer, up to the final claw, where the wielder must have suffered a near fatal strike, or a strike that would have left them dead, instead of falling, they rise again unleashing it's power.
Koudoshin's 4 Claws are:
Koudo Katana Kousen, the Earth Blade Beam, by focusing pure reiatsu into the blade, earth is formed around and along the blade as it is slammed into the ground unleashing massive power of a beam strike with the force of the very earth behind the strike.
Tsyuori Yurasu Renda, the Mighty Rock Barrage, after the Fist Claw is unleashed, much of the ground is torn asunder, leaving room for many smaller and larger pieces of the ground to rise up and form into a solid object with reiatsu compacting them. These are then fired off in a massive barrage towards the target at bullet speeds, as deadly earthly projectiles.
Ulitma Emeraduo Kousen, the Ultimate Emerald Beam, similar to the original emerald beam this one draws power from any green around them, however this ability actually drains the essence of the green around them to turn it into a powerful attack. This blast can deplete an entire rain forest in a matter of seconds, and level the same ammount of space if it were fully developed land.
Emeraduo Kiretsu, the Emerald Fissure, this is the final Claw, it tears open the earth in a massive 500 yard casm, with emerald spikes all around shooting out from every direction as they seek to rip their opponent off the ground and banish them into the maws of the earth, when the target is confirmed to have been lose within the fissure, the wielder slams their hands together and the earth closes itself at the exact same rate, skewering and trapping anything caught within it.
But that is not where Koudoshin's true power ends, The Ultimate Release is the final stage.
This was reached by Kiyo Ikazuchi, the man who once wielded Koudoshin's mate as a Vizard who lead many great people and crafted many great things, always paying tribute to the earth from which he took his materials. When Ivellious had gathered his army to fight back against Omega and Kiyo walked hand in hand with Koudoshin on their final quest: to destroy the evil which threatened not just their realm, but every known realm within existence. They had traveled far, all that was left of the group that had originally set out was the three of them: Kiyo Ikazuchi, wielder of Koudoshin, Toukai Arkensek, wielder of Ankokoushin, and Ivellious Tempest himself, wielding Raikoushin. They came upon a dark forest, where a monstrous creature lurked within, Kiyo and Koudoshin knew exactly what this monster was. This abomination was a side product of Bergans earlier experiments, The Grand Phantom Maliboro.
The battle was long and bloody, as they cut their way through the hordes of fallen warriors and even the fallen black dragon that once stood against the Phantom himself. Until finally they reached him. Holding nothing back, Kiyo let loose the True Release, even donning his hollow mask to face this monster, but to no avail. The elite warrior that guarded the Phantom was a powerful one, and when fighting both that druid and the Grand Phantom the warriors were pushed to their limit. Unleashing the First Claw after but a single blow they were able to do some damage to the beast, only to find it regenerating, after taking a barrage of spells and unleashing the Second Claw, they felt the beast was felled, but that was not enough. Even unleashing the Third Claw didn't do it after they were hit by a blast out of the creatures main eye. However, as they fell to recover from that blast, Kiyo was smashed by one of the tendrils of The Grand Phantom which sent him flying. Forcing himself to his feet, his reiatsu caused a tremble in the air, as they let loose the Emerald Fissure. However, The Grand Phantom was no fool and moved rapidly out of the pit, throwing instead the druid within it, lest he get caught by the shards of emerald otherwise. And as Kiyo fell, his inner hollow made a deal with Koudoshin, even the monster inside Kiyo's soul wanted to see this creature dead for all that it had done, and instead sacrificed itself to the Law of the 4th allowing them to progress to the final stage.
"Ultimate Release, Koudo Doragon." They opened their eyes as they stared down the Grand Phantom with burning emerald green eyes, full of fury, rage, grief and all sorts of other emotions, stone like wings and a long tail showing what they had truly become. They had become one being, they were going to destroy this beast for all that it had done. All the pain and suffering, they were going to pay it back 10 Fold!
"Yabureme de Koudo." Not even the Grand Phantom could survive such a devastating attack as it was torn in half, along with the ground in all directions, a massive pit opening underneath both combatants and the forest itself vanished beneath the black earth, along with Kiyo Ikazuchi.
A History Lesson on Koudoshin:
Koudoshin was the second eldest of all of the dragons. She was born only a decade after Raikoushin and Ankokushin and got to know them both fairly well. However, as they grew up Koudoshin's love of the ground she walked on created more than just a rift between her and Raikoushin, it created a tense air between the two of them. However, while Raikoushin was always acting like he was the greatest and looked down upon Koudoshin, her other brother, Ankokushin was the complete opposite. While Raikoushin was an arrogant little asshole, Ankokushin was a modest and polite dragon. When their little brother Kazeshin was born, Koudoshin wanted nothing to do with him, ignoring him completely and totally because he was of wind, the most inferior element to that of Earth. When Koudoshin found out that she was to be the second sister, an older sister to Mizushin, a dragon of water, she was quite over joyed. Water and Earth had traditionally been on the same side, and both were against lightning. However, it seemed as though Raikoushin was not finished scorning Koudoshin, as he managed to warp Mizushin's mind when he saved her once from another dragon, who happened to be a dragon of Earth. Needless to say, Koudoshin was furious. The rift that was created, was now a fissure, and instead of just a tenseness about one and other, there was a deep and harsh hatred between Koudoshin and Raikoushin. Time passed and Koudoshin had found many ways to scorn Raikoushin, by bringing the Kasaishin under her influence she managed to get him to stab Raikoushin in the back! It was perfect, the youngest scorns the oldest! However, before that Koudoshin had an encounter of sorts with human warriors he believed they knew more about magic than she. They sealed her away into a blade that they had forged. It was for that reason alone that Koudoshin did not simply shatter the blade and take her vengeance upon them. The humans had taken some of her most basic metals and fused them together to form something that Koudoshin did not know how to shatter. However, it was only a short decade before her brother Ankokoushin had come to free her. When he freed her he spoke of plotting a revenge against Raikoushin, as he believed it was Raikoushin's idea that they be sealed away in the first place. Koudoshin agreed without hesitation and during that 1,000 years of freedom, Koudoshin had done all she could to help out her brother. However, in the last decade of that 1,000 years Ankokoushin seemed to change greatly. He was by far more dark and harsh than he had been before, he was even having secret meetings with a black dragon by the name of Blight. Secretly though, Koudoshin knew Blight in more way than Ankokoushin could possibly comprehend, as both her and Blight were lovers. And though Raikoushin had been trying to take away the young green dragon Blister from Koudoshin's grasp, she still managed to keep him in line so that he never truly chose a side in the war. But, when Koudoshin found out that the war she had been waging with Raikoushin was all just a ruse so that Ankokoushin could summon the darkest and most vile evil to ever walk on her precious earth who was now known as "Omega" as much as Koudoshin hated her brother Raikoushin, she would not stand to see her element defiled by a creature that would betray even his own race and turn against his gods just for power. It was because of this that she turned against Ankokoushin, though she still stood loyal to him and used his Four Fangs, instead of Raikoushin's Four Runes, she would not see the horror of the world walking her Dragusinkusekki as long as she still existed. It was quite an interesting development then, when two young elves and their friends had managed to stop the summoning that Ankokoushin had been planning for the past 1,000 years. Clearly they had great power with them, and it was when a dwarven cleric came to her with the very same blade she thought she had obliterated that she grew even more interested in their power. When this dwarf approached her with the two elves, they were polite and avoided insult. Koudoshin liked this a great deal, as they even referred to her as "The Mother of the ground they walked on" and Koudoshin always enjoyed being flattered. The tall elf stepped forward first and said "Great Koudoshin, I am Ivellious Liadon and this is my brother, Sovliss Liadon" he pointed to the shorter elf, "We have come to stop the war between your brothers by sealing you within the blades you were sealed in long ago. However, unlike the previous time, we intend to do it with respect and dignity to some of the greatest creatures that were born in the images of the gods and goddesses. You, mighty Koudoshin, though not a true goddess, are the Mother of the very ground we stand on now and we ask you out of respect and honour for your greatness to willingly be sealed within the blade. This young dwarven cleric will carry your blade to a sacred shrine in the tallest mountain you have created so that you may await the true wielder of the blade. A being who fits you in personality and in method of fighting. We only ask this, because we of the lesser races" Koudoshin quite liked hearing that, the elves and dwarf admitting that they were lesser to the great dragons, "Fear that if your brothers fight, they will rip apart everything we hold dear and we do not wish to see this world of ours and yours crumble like to dust." Koudoshin had heard enough at this point, they were quite flattering and very respectful about it, as such Koudoshin agreed to be sealed in the blade. The young monk Sovliss stated chanting, in of all the languages of Dragusinkusekki, Dragonic! Koudoshin caught every single word he said "I call upon you now lords of the spirit world to take this mighty dragon and bind her to the fist object in comes into contact with her, The greatest creatures of the realm, shall be bound to the greatest blades ever forged and embedded with the greatest magic ever to exist. With this I beg of thee, seal away Koudoshin, The Mother of the Earth and the Mother of the ground we walk on." It was quite an interesting chant, afterwards the tall elf, Ivellious, took the blade from the dwarfs hands, it was still the katana that had sealed her away in the first place, but this time they had payed tribute to her. Embedding her hilt with gold dug up by the dwarves and infusing the blade with the most powerful stone that was findable naturally, adamantine. Not only that but they had made the cloth out of elements of the earth. She was impressed and when the young Ivellious only tapped her with the blade Koudoshin was even more impressed.
But that was not the end of her tale. A few centuries later, after Koudoshin had felt all of her brothers and sisters find their true wielder, the descendant of the dwarf that had carried Koudoshin to her shrine grasped her hilt and begged for her to help him. It seemed as though he had lost all of his family to the Lich who was Ankokoushin's true wielder and he begged for her help to gain revenge on the being. Koudoshin had enough of being idle, and though it wasn't opposing Raikoushin, she could live with opposing Ankokoushin once again, as it was clear what the Lich was trying to do once again. He never had his mind again once Ankokoushin had taken hold of him and Ankokoushin was always trying to bring back Omega so that he may be the supreme ruler of all dragons. Though still still despised aiding her brother Raikoushin, she was not going to let Ankokoushin win. It could not happen ever again, Omega walked Dragusinkusekki eons ago, and parts of it still have not recovered, Koudoshin, as the Mother of the Earth, could never let that happen again.
Thus is the tale of Koudoshin, the second eldest of the Elemental Hearts. And though she despises him, Koudoshin shall still aid Raikoushin if he is ever fighting against Ankokoushin. She created an entirely new way to fight the war that was constantly waged between their siblings, the last remaining "gods" of the realm.
