N/AREGISTERED WITH SHIELD?
Osaka, JapanKNOWN RELATIVES:
Kenji Oyama (deceased) , two unnamed brothers (deceased)PHYSICAL APPEARANCEHEIGHT:
Slim, 128lbs Heavily athletic build EYES:
Black and straight usually put up into a tight bun. DISTINGUISHING MARKS:
Evidence of circuitry is scattered here and there. CLOTHING STYLE:
Deathstrike sports an all black samurai like outfit. She is rarely seen in anything else except for the occasional Japanese kimono. UNIFORM:
Yuriko is capable of lifting 1 ton at maximum effort. Similarly, because her cybernetic musculature does not produce as many fatigue toxins as an average human being, she is able to exert herself for hours without succumbing to the effects of fatigue. She is able to move at speeds far greater than that of the finest human athlete, however it does classify her as having super-speed. Her reflexes and agility have been enhanced to surpass the physical limitations of most humans.
Cybernetic Healing Factor: Yuriko can rapidly repair damage inflicted upon her cybernetic and organic parts. A scratch could be healed in seconds, while extensive damage to several organs could take more time. However if one were to behead her she would not be able to replace the loss herself without the use of her brain. Thus dubbing her dead.
Admantium Claws and Skeleton: Yuriko's skeleton has been infused with Admantium, a virtually indestructible metal (used in previous experiments). Thus her bones have remained to be practically unbreakable. Her fingers have been replaced with 12 inch long claws also made of Admantium. These claws can be extended to twice their length and slice through any known material with the exceptions being Admantium and Vibranium.
Other Known abilities:
-Master of Kenjutsu
-Supremely skilled martial artist
-Speaks Japanese and English fluently WEAKNESS:
Yuriko is helpless against telepathic attacks as well as telekinetic ones. Thus making her incredibly vulnerable in the mind and one could literally tear her mind apart. She has failed to protect her mind in the past and is quite vulnerable against any none physical attacks. Her honor often proves to be her greatest weakness as certain advantages she could take against her enemy are avoided. If she is beheaded or a very vital organ is completely ruptured it is very difficult for her to repair herself unless she had outside helpPERSONALITY
Yuriko's mind has been wired and rewired several times giving her ultimately a lack of true personality. She has proven herself to be an effective agent but very cold and distant. Her mental instability prevents her from openly showing intimate emotions. More often than not one will see her in a violent rage or a deep depression. Her history as a killer has made her very sadistic and she doesn't seem to hold any regard for life at all. She often abuses her teammates because of this proving her very inefficient at working with others.
Despite her icy personality Yuriko is samurai and thus has a very deep sense of honor. For instance, despite our urgings she refuses to attack a person from behind or attack someone who is not aware of her presence. Very rarely will she kill someone who can not defend themselves.In fact she seems unsettled after doing so, almost pitying the one she just killed. She seems to also harbor a great hatred for James Logan Howlett and has remarked more than once that he burned her pride and cooked it in a soup with her family honor, ate it and puked it back up again. It seems that every time he bests her she becomes more determined to destroy him. HISTORY: PRE-APOCALYPSE
Yuriko Oyama was born to Kenji Oyama also known as Lord Dark Wind an infamous crimelord. Eventually Kenji became the head of Oyama Heavy industries and Yuriko and her two brothers were placed into tutoring by Mary Stryker, wife of William Stryker. Because of his failure in a suicide attack on an American Battleship during World War II Kenji scarred the faces of his children in the same way his was scarred. He eventually developed the technique of bonding Admantium to bone but his notes were stolen and it took many years in order to rediscover the process.
Yuriko grew up estranged and emotionally distant from her father developing a deep hatred for him. She grew into a young woman and met the only one she would ever truly love, Kira. Kira served in her father's own personal army. She eventually after encountering the crime fighter Daredevil sought vengeance against her father for not only scarring her but for the deaths of her brothers who in his service were killed and she did not wish any harm to come to Kira.
In rage she led the blind hero to her father's private island. She then slew her father herself just as started to kill Daredevil. Pained by his master's death Kira committed suicide much to Yuriko's dismay. The death altered Yuriko's perception of life entirely and she became determined to carry on her father's work. Realizing that the one called Logan had an Admantium laced skeleton she came to the conclusion that he must have stolen the method from her father. Calling herself Lady Deathstrike she confronted him as a samurai in Canada but was defeated effortlessly.
Soon after mulling over her defeat she came into contact with her old tutor's husband and she at his urging became Weapon-X's newest experiment. She was turned into cyborg, given incredible abilities and claws similar to Wolverine's but on her fingers. But it came with a price. She was to serve as an agent of Weapon-X whenever Stryker so required her assistance. If she rebelled she would be brainwashed. Since then she has come to terms with her predicament and has managed to ally with several villains but ultimately her loyalty lies with Weapon-X but not by her own accord but mainly because the organization has the means to upgrade her and repair her should major damages to her arise. She has swore to destroy Logan once and for all and although he may not know why she remembers clear enough.DURING APOCALYPSE (April 5th through April 12th, 2009)
Deathstrike had initially no major part during Apocalypse and had actually been striking up deals with the Hellfire club while managing her father's still-going company in Japan. However it seemed the Hellfire club was a little distracted and Deathstrike canceled all further communications with them in frustration. And for a very breath time Lady Deathstrike abandoned her quest for vengeance and instead turned her attentions towards the matter at hand. Of course she soon experienced the effects of the events during that time and the Horsemen's influence reached even to the far corners of the Earth. Although she really, really hates to admit it she had the X-Men to thank for her survival. However, she was quite angry that she did not get assassinate several people do to the sudden chaos all over the earth. POST-APOCALYPSE
Deathstrike has taken up her quest against Logan once more and has recently continued serving with Weapon X. She has left matters in Japan to more important people. She has recently received and upgrade and has been sent on more and more jobs. In rage she has been openly attacking any X-Men members she encounters and ultimately hopes to eradicate all of them once and for all. She has made a little contact with the Brotherhood but not much. As of now she resides in New York. Waiting for the right moment to strike.SAMPLE RP POST:
Lady Deathstrike ran a long claw against the edge of the metal railing and smiled at the screech that emitted from it. "Come out come out wherever you are." She called out. Where did the little twit go? A glass object came flying at her and she avoided it deftly watching as if crashed on the floor behind her. She cursed in Japanese and glanced at the direction it was coming from. A scared man in a lab coat standing a few feet away. She smirked. "There you are."
"Ge-get away from me!" The man cried out staggering backwards.
"Now doctor. Tell me where it lays. Or these shall be the last breaths you take." She moved forward until she was standing over him holding the admantium claws to his throat. She caressed the man's cheek with a claw from the left hand. The claw left deep wounds as it ran up and down the man's face. She almost believed she could feel his pulse through her claws.
"I-I have no idea what you're talking about."
"Very well. Then there is no reason for you to live." She spat lunging towards him.
"No wait!" The doctor was breathing heavily now and she paused one claw already beginning to slash. "I-it's gone. Taken by something called the X-men"
"The X-men. Who do you speak of?"
"I don't know." The man seemed honest enough but one could never be too sure. Deathstrike raised her claws and slashed. With a spray of blood and an agonizing scream the scientist was finished. A cold laugh emitted from her throat. Sad really. That such a lonely man face such a horrific death. But it was the way the world worked. The weak die young and the strong live on. She wiped the blood from her claws on the man's coat and kicked the body slightly with her foot. She then held her beloved weapons out, admiring the way they caught the dim light of the lab. She flexed them and turned towards the array of chemicals on a table. With one swift motion she swiped them off and blinked at the sudden crashing of glass against the floor. As one combination caught fire she kicked the man's body into it and walked away from the mess. Several large glass containers that held strange organisms lined the next hall. Deathstrike slashed one and watched as the liquid pooled out. She slashed another, and another until the floor was soaked in strange liquid. She then splashed quietly towards the exit and tossed a small grenade into the lab. After a few steps she heard a large boom and turned around to see that the lab was no more. She smiled and walked away from the scene.
