Akiko is a deity tied to mimicry, and as such possesses the ability to change their appearance at will, giving them differing forms, be they male or female. What form they choose to take is wholly dependent on mood; brighter moods may lead to an upbeat boy or cheery girl while darker moods may lead to a dreary teenage boy or grumpy girl. Like many gods, they do possess a ‘true’ form. This is not the same as their Divine Forms, which would destroy anyone who looked upon them should the victim not be another divine or holy being. This ‘true’ form is a default appearance for each gender, meaning it's what they revert to when they're not purposely utilizing an alternate form. Amelia Seyruun [The Slayers] is the faceclaim for her female form while Lucifer [The Devil is a Part Timer] is the faceclaim for his male form.
As already referenced, while in female form they go by "She" and while in male form they go by "He". When referred to overall they just go with "They/Them/Their".
Akiko can be kind, polite and humble. But also adventerous, curious, sarcastic and very eccentric. Once they become friends with a person, they'll always be there. They're incredibly loyal and will only go back on their stance if the person in question turns out not to be who they thought they were. They're also amazingly intelligent and insightful, often picking up small details about people or objects that others tend to miss.
While Akiko may seem at first to possess the patience of a saint, this is not always the case. In fact there are plenty of things that may try their patience, such as missing their favorite TV show, dealing with people who are openly rude, or being told how to live their life. Things such as these are instant mood-killers and may very well turn Akiko into the most grumpy person on the planet. When they're in a mood like this, tread carefully. Even the smallest thing could set them off on a ranting tirade- and in this kind of state Akiko is not the most saintly. They are prone to excessive profanities and blunt, hurtful statements. Like anyone else, however, once they calm down they tend to apologize for any negative actions they may have taken while down in the dumps.
Akiko has proven themselves to be quite perverted. They have a fondness for girls with big breasts, to the point that their female forms tend to sport them. They've mused that this part of them might be genetic, due to the numerous other gods out there also having a boner for attractive girls.
Resurrective Immortality: As a Deity, Akiko can't die. Well, they can, but so long as the concept of Mimicry exists in some shape or form, they'll simply come back to life shortly after they've "died."
Divine Power: As a Deity they hold divine power that can purify any creature of darkness. It's this that gives them their Godly aura and ability to create barriers. Though they're capable of toning it down at will so they don't accidentally fry every youkai or demon they come across.
Magic Power: Akiko's magical essence is, in short, immense. When exerted, it can force any mere mortal to the ground and even some lesser deities to their knees. And yet, none of the mortals are able to truly comprehend it. The magical prowess of a Deity isn't something a mortal mind can easily understand, with only a select few being able to vaguely judge the full overwhelming scale of their might. The only way to fully understand it is to be another Deity or some other being of great power.
Aura: Akiko's magical aura only manifests when they are actively utilizing their power, taking on the form of a whirling vortex of sparking purple electricity circulating rapidly around their body.
God Sense: As a Deity they’re capable of hearing prayers. Think of it like a dog whistle of sorts, even if they're across the city they can hear them and come to the person's aid. Well, as long the prayer isn't a mundane and stupid one anyway.
Life Sense: Akiko can detect any signs of life within a miles radius of themselves. They can also determine whether they're human or otherwise depending on the type of signal they give out. Though they can only identify what species they are if they've run into them before. Naturally this does not work on beings who are completely artificial and thus do not give off life energy.
Mimicry: Face - This ability allows them to change their appearance, attire and voice to flawlessly match whoever they want. Be it fictional characters, people they know, people they've only seen once. Even the dead can be replicated. The only thing they can’t change is their personality; after all they don’t know how a person ticks on the inside. Though if they knew a person well enough they could probably pull off pretending to be them.
Mimicry: Skills - An ability that lets them mimic the abilities of others. Any attack they witness they can reproduce, but they will almost always be weaker. That is unless Akiko has a higher base attribute than that person. For example, a punching technique from a skilled boxer could be mimicked by them and result in a stronger attack than the boxer because they are inherently stronger than him. Most special techniques will be weaker than the original and more often than not they’ll have trouble because copying and knowing how an ability works are two different things. As it stands, the more basic an ability is, the easier it is for them to mimic it. Complex abilities like Goku's Spirit Bomb or Luffy's Gear Third would likely be difficult for them, while less complex moves like Goku's Kamehameha or Ichigo's Getsuga Tenshou would be easier.
Mimicry: Armament - By their divine nature and their ability to mimic, Akiko can produce any weapon they have ever seen. They can summon it at will and use it to their advantage. With the ability to cycle through weapons as if they were flipping through a book, they can adapt to any situation and more or less become incredibly unpredictable. Though it should be noted that while they can summon and use these weapons, it doesn't mean they're good with them. Their skill lies in swordplay, so guns and axes and other such weapons would naturally be difficult for them to use.
Mimicry: Structure - Another aspect of their divine Mimicry. Akiko is able to recreate any structure or object they've seen before, no matter how big or small. The materials are simply conjured out of thin air, fed by their magic. As a result, ultra-rare objects or constructs made of rare materials may be far more taxing to recreate than something common, say, a refridgerator. It helps to also know what the object is made of, or else they have to make a guess. While this ability can be a bit of a headache for even them to wrap their head around, it has proved extremely useful. From conjuring houses out of nothing to creating clothing and even a full course meal- Akiko is never truly without food or shelter. Definitely makes it easier to travel. All of home's luxuries are merely a simple finger's snap away.
Wing Chun Master: Akiko is a Master of the Martial Art known as Wing Chun. Created long ago by the Martial Arts Master Ng Mui, she developed the style to make up for her small stature and lack of strength, utilizing her superior speed and precise strikes to take down much bigger opponents. It is an art that focuses on simultaneous offense and defense, delivering brutal strikes to the body’s weak points in quick succession. Such as the ears, neck, joints and stomach.
Rather than rely on flashy movements, Wing Chun is very grounded and practical, making it very useful in taking down opponents without much strain on the user. The most important aspect is to always step inwards and disrupt your opponent’s balance, making it hard for them to defend against your strikes and counterattack. It is the perfect style for those who aren’t inherently strong yet still wish to be able to hold their own against any opponent. Of course, in Akiko’s case, their strength and speed just makes the style even more frightening.
Strength: Akiko is powerful, there’s no denying that. When you’re capable of singlehandedly storming an enemies base by punching down their defensive steel walls with little effort, you’re certainly not one to be trifled with. Their most impressive feat was when they picked up the remains of a hundred story skyscraper with one hand and used it as a weapon.
Speed: Akiko is an incredibly fast fighter who is capable of zipping through the battlefield at speeds that transcend light itself.
Agility: Akiko is very quick on their feet, allowing them to change directions flawlessly even in the midst of high speed combat. With the kind of speed they have, it was sort of required that they'd train themselves to be agile otherwise they'd risk tripping over their own feet or running straight into walls.
Sense: Akiko has been shown to have an incredibly potent sixth sense. This is shown when they saw through an amazingly realistic illusion without much effort at all. It takes more than fancy lights and sounds to trick them. But their sixth sense isn’t the only one that’s extraordinary. Sight, Smell, Hearing, Touch and Taste. All of these are enhanced far beyond that of a normal human. They can see near-perfectly in the dark, hear things half a mile away in perfect clarity, etc. These are but some of the perks that one gains by being a Deity.
Expert Swordsmanship: Akiko has trained in the art of swordsmanship and while their style isn’t exactly refined; it gets the job done. Their preferred type of sword is a wooden bokkuto stating that’s light but durable and easy to carry around without getting odd looks.
Teleportation: A staple of their godly nature. They're capable of zipping from one side of the world to the other in an instant. It’s also usable for shorter ranges as well. They can also take others along for the ride. Although doing so requires them to make physical contact with the other party.
Telekinesis: Through the power of their mind, Akiko is able to move anything at their whim. From mundane, practical things like fetching a plate of cookies or opening a door when both hands are full, to throwing their foes hundreds of feet away with a single wave of their hand. This skill is incredibly versatile, and as such they use it more often than many of their godly abilities, as it really does just make things far simpler. The options are really quite limitless. That said, exceptionally strong beings can resist or even break the psychic grip, rendering this ability essentially useless against them.
Dimensional Doorway: By fiddling with a variety of different dimensional abilities that they've seen over their long life, they became able to create their own variation allowing them to travel to any destination in the multiverse. The only catch is, unless they've been there before they won't be able to pinpoint a location. So most of the time they're just bouncing between worlds at random with no sense of direction. It certainly makes things interesting at the very least.
Healing: A staple of Akiko’s Divinity. They can remove things like curses, heal injuries and even cure ailments like poison, blindness, deafness and muteness. They may also use it to revive the dead; but they’d rather not unless the death was unjust and should be reversed.
