I had an idea for a fan character. I started with gameplay but decided to make a simple backstory because why not.
Eclipse Troupe Ringmaster
Barnes is the undead ringmaster to the mysterious wandering Eclipse Troupe.
More than anything he enjoys putting on a good show. When Quince hires him to portray Quince as a defender of the people, he leaps at the chance. Maybe Quince should have clarified that helping the Scourge find Flagstone was not exactly what he had in mind…
Innate: Circus Antics
When Barnes’ normal attacks are blocked by normal blocks, next turn the opponent can’t dodge. Barnes’ attacks and throws become 2.0 speed faster to a maximum of 1.0 and he can do mixup normals.
Normal attack speed: x.6
Normal throw speed: x.4
Normal throw damage: 5
Normal throws are 2 CP starters and knock down.
Side Switch [combat]: if you win combat with this throw and the opponent has a larger hand, they discard down to your hand size. You draw that many cards.
J Fireworks Shot (attack) 2.4 Speed. 5 damage (1 chip). Ender. If this does chip damage, the opponent does not draw a card.
Q Somersault: attack. 0.0 speed. 0 damage and chip. Can’t Combo.
If the opponent dodges, they can’t follow up.
K Heel Strike: attack. 3.6 speed. 1 CP linker. 6 damage/2 chip.
A Big Top Bunt: attack. 1.0 Speed. Can’t Combo. 10 damage/ 3 chip.
AA The Trapeze: attack. 4.8 speed. 2 CP ender. 18 damage/ 4 chip.
I started with the notion of a Magneto style mixup character.
I know my outline is disorganized, but I would like feedback: does this character seem interesting? Does he look too strong or weak? If you read this far, thank you.
