Shira or by her full title, Death Shira, is an OC created by Laki. She is a centuries old death goddess who has plagued the World of Destinies Intertwined. First appearing in the side RP Teddy's Trial, Shira has grown to develop a dynamic role in the timeline, most notably throughout the Demon Trilogy.
Shira is a malevolent, inter-dimensional entity whose full past and origins are still shrouded in mystery. However, it is known that she started off as a mortal, before launching a strike on the Realm of Death in order to steal its ruler's position and become an artificial goddess herself. She would eventually become the masked menace that societies know her as now, twisting the realm into her image and using her abilities to spread destruction and suffering across the multiverse.
Shira deeply believes that despair and ruin are the natural state of things, wanting the universe to be at one with it in order to become "perfect". Her rather twisted thinking also appears to have influenced her realm's bizarre culture, most of the inhabitants revering her as a god. Dodeca and the Order of Light have worked diligently to keep Shira sealed in her realm, though she has managed to escape numerous times to cause trouble on earth.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Shira' is known to be a powerful enemy, being able to keep equal footing with Dodeca. One of her signature techniques is summoning chains that she uses to bind, impale and whip enemies from a long range. Not only this, but she has been shown to utilize darkness energy in her attacks, which are conjured into blasts. Shira has also been shown to utilize a special decaying compound known as petrisludge, which causes anything that it touches to petrify. This may last anywhere from a few minutes to weeks, though weakening her may allow the victim to break free.
Being the ruler of a realm, Shira has command over armies of creatures to fight for her, the most common being mechanical, masked soldiers known as Eviscera Knights. As Shira is increasingly bound to her Realm through one of Dodeca's spells, she more often relies on her armies to carry out her duties.
In spite of her great power, Shira is still susceptible to light magic, and removing her mask will often render her incredibly weakened.
Shira makes her first appearance in Teddy's Trial, where she is first encountered by Teddy. As part of a trial, Teddy must go to Shira's realm in order to fight and defeat her. He eventually succeeds in doing so, sealing her back in her realm.
Shira later appears in PTRPCRP2, where she escapes her realm and arrives in Death Valley. The Order is forced to fight her, and though she initially has the upper hand, having imprisoned a number of the apprentices, she is soon beaten and, once again, sealed in her realm.
Shira gains a more central role in Lives of Light, where she is found by Netruvion, who offers her a deal- escape from her isolation in her realm in return for her allegiance to him. She accepts and begins aiding the demons in their plan for conquest, wreaking havoc on Light City and the Order of Light. Shira's allegiance is imperative, but nevertheless futile, as she is fought and defeated at the hands of Dodeca, who kills Shira during the climax of the story.
In Army of Dark Souls, it is revealed that while indeed killed, Shira was reincarnated due to her privileges as a "death goddess." Shira awakens with no memories of her former self and approached by Norwood, who allows her to travel with him. Throughout the one-year time skip between LoL and AoDS, Shira follows and learns from Norwood, slowly travelling from North Denland to South Denland, where they soon enter Serpent's Ridge.
ReincarnationEditSome time after her death in Lives of Light, and during the span of Army of Darkness, Shira is reincarnated as a human girl with no memories of her past life. However, she is eventually discovered by Norwood, who takes her under his wing and guides her across Denland . Norwood holds the key to Shira's past but is careful not to tell her too much at once.
In this incarnation, Shira shows virtually no signs of malice or evil, and is very naive to the ways of the world. It's unknown if she has any powers since she hasn't demonstrated any as of yet. When told that some people in this world are cruel and do horrible things to others she's genuinely stunned and saddened to know that things like that occur. This goes to show that in her reincarnated state she leans more towards the side of justice, though her true alignment is unknown at the time being. It's also unknown whether or not she'll become her old self once more.
