Dodeca Aerion is an OC created by Laki. Dodeca is a master light practitioner who serves as the head of a world peace organization known as the Order of Light. She oversees several apprentices and has established a large role throughout the timeline since her debut.
OverviewEditA centuries old woman of incredible power, Dodeca serves as the head of the Order of Light. She is a master of light magic, and has knowledge of other forms of magic as well, being able to raise up students in the art of spells. Dodeca general has a wise, lady-like and benevolent air to her, being able to lead and teach several people at once. However, beneath this she has quite a temper and can be an aggressive force if provoked. Dodeca is often seen as "silk hiding steel": a delicate and coy exterior but can be stern and firm with people when needed. She has experienced a lot in her very long life, including countless losses. These take a toll on her, but she does her best not to show it. Dodeca's very soul is bound to the Fortress of Light, thus she is unable to leave it for long periods of time.
Dodeca's nearly goddess-like state of power was the result of her early attempts to become the most powerful mage in existence. She came across a forbidden spell that would grant her incredible power, but as a result, bound her to the Fortress. A prideful, selfish and arrogant woman back then, over the years she'd go into reflection on her state of being and begin to devote her energy to eliminating the darkness of the world, thus she establishes the Order of Light. Dodeca's witnessed the world in its darkest states, and has experienced the loss of countless friends. It would seem that this had an effect in breaking her mind, though she keeps it remarkably well-hidden. Though traces of this are apparent in the more quirky side of her personality, and her rather odd interests, such as pirate ships, flamethrowers and giant robots. Nonetheless, Dodeca is a very caring individual, whose role has become central in the timeline.
Powers/AbilitiesEditDodeca is capable of using very powerful forms of light magic in combat. She may attack with either energy balls, beams or even sharpened shards of light energy. Most commonly, she will form light energy into weapons, such as swords, daggers or even a giant mallet. Dodeca is also capable of levitation and has displayed telepathic powers, such as being able to read a person's conscience or being able to communicate through telepathy. However, her biggest restriction is the fact that she cannot leave the Fortress of Light for long periods of time, as it will cause her to deteriorate. Without these restrictions, it's very possible that Dodeca could simply stop the forces of darkness on her own, without the assistance of apprentices. Dodeca is also shown to be capable of creating synthetic life-forms out of light, creating Godbird and Sanic.
Dodeca debuts in The Second Secret War, where she is mentioned several times by Strawbella and Zula before making an appearance towards the end. She has to purify Strawbella and Teddy after they're corrupted by Vanessa, which is of great help in her eventual defeat. Dodeca would go on to appear in numerous RPs afterwards. She and the rest of the Order have to defeat Paige and prevent her from accessing dangerous secrets in Teddy's Journal. In Darkness Plague, Teddy catches a dangerous illness that affects darkness users and Dodeca volunteers to leave her Fortress on a quest to save him.
Dodeca has had several relationships throughout her life, ranging across positive and negative. Firstly, she has a strong bond with each of her apprentices, almost treating them like her own family and helping them reach new heights. Dodeca shows great concern for them, and is more than eager to savagely attack those who harm them. Dodeca had a strong impression of Teddy upon their first encounter, and over time the two would begin a relationship. Dodeca initially struggles with these feelings, as Teddy is very much mortal and she is bound to outlive him. However, she now focuses on cherishing the time they do have together, and she does whatever it takes to protect him and keep him from danger. Dodeca has a bitter rivalry with Vanessa, as she was once her apprentice but became lost in darkness and lust. Nowadays Vanessa constantly attempts to kidnap Teddy, inciting rage from Dodeca. Dodeca is on shaky terms with Paige initially, seeing her as a threat due to her behavior in Teddy's Journal. However, when Paige moves on from this, the two's relationship improves and she now considers Paige to be a great friend. Dodeca despises her otherworldly counterpart, Death Shira, and has attempted to seal her numerous times.
- Dodeca is physically in her late 20's but in actuality she's thousands of years old. This is often the target of various jokes, though she's shown to be very sensitive about her age.
- Dodeca's chest is sometimes the target of various in-jokes as a result of Teddy accidentally falling face-first into it.
- An interesting fact about Dodeca's name: It is the Ancient Greek prefix for the cardinal number 12.
- There also happen to be 12 unique branches of the Order of Light, keeping true to her namesake.
- There is a group of islands called the Dodecanese Islands near Greece.
