Wielder: Leona Jarnefeldt
Purchase Proof: Proof (Page 9, Post Number 222)
Many centuries ago a lion of incredible height and ferocity prowled a distant land, feasting on whoever crossed its path and spreading terror wherever it went. Many hunters attempted to bring it down and each attempt met with failure thanks to the lion's incredible resilience. Edged weapons and blunt weapons failed to even slow it down, let alone hurt it. For a long time it seemed like nothing and no one could stop the Nemean Lion.
One brave hero succeeded where many others had failed by seizing the beast by its throat and strangling it until it died. The hero went on to perform many other brave deeds and many rejoiced at the end of the seemingly unstoppable lion. However, while the Nemean Lion's body might have died, its indomitable spirit refused to leave the world. Its spirit can sometimes manifest in those named in honor of the lion, but it is very selective about its hosts and chooses the one it believes to be the strongest.
After centuries of looking for a suitable host its indomitable spirit has finally manifested in Leona Jarnefeldt. Its spirit grants Leona a variety of boons such as increasing the resilience of her skin to make it as tough as armor, a boost to her physical strength, the ability to summon a "small" Nemean Lion to aid her in battle, and other special gifts to make Leona a worthy host. While the Nemean Lion's original body might be long dead, its spirit has found a new home in a mage worthy to be named in honor of the lion.
•Nemean Skin- Leona's body has taken on traits of the Nemean Lion, giving her skin added resilience. Leona gains 25% Damage Resistance in exchange for a 25% decrease to Base MP. This ability is passive. (1 Effect, 1 Downside)
•Lion's Strength- Leona has been granted the strength of her big cat namesake, a boon which permits her to deal more damage in combat. Leona gets a 60% increase to Strength. This ability is passive. (1 Effect)
•Lion's Share- Over the course of her career Leona has discovered that people are concerned about cheating her and willingly pay her more for the completion of jobs. Leona gets 100% more Jewels for herself with every job completed. This ability is Passive. (1 Effect)
•Echidna's Legacy- Leona can call upon a miniature Nemean Lion combat pet to aid her in battle. The "miniature" Nemean Lion is the size of a normal lion but is much stronger than its normal brethren. It is an Ethereal-grade pet but must be given stats and approved just like any other pet. (1 Effect)
•Lion's Vitality: The hide of the Nemean Lion was only part of the reason it was so tough to take down. Another part of its legendary resilience was its vitality. Leona gets a 60% increase to HP. HP also regenerates at a rate of 5% every post. (2 Effects)
•Tireless Hunter: The Nemean Lion was a tireless hunter that always seemed to have the energy with which to hunt and fight. Leona gains a 60% increase to SP. Leona also regenerates SP at a rate of 5% every post. (2 Effects)
• Leonine Aspects- Leona has been gifted with small but important aspects of the lion that can aid her. She benefits from better balance on narrow surfaces like ledges; her balance is improved to such a degree that she has to be pushed off with a physical attack or spell in order to fall from narrow surfaces she is balancing on. Also, she can fall from a height of up to twenty stories without being harmed by the fall. This is a Plot/Story Ability.
• Energetic Hunter- Leona has inherited some of the restless nature of the Nemean Lion. She is more resistant to fatigue and requires less sleep than the average person. This is a Plot/Story Ability.
