Long ago in the Realm of the Gods, the Orichalcos God was neither good nor evil. He watched humans since they evolved and vowed that one day he’d show them the realm of the Gods, where they could live in paradise. He took particular interest in an Atlantean youth, Dartz, who he befriended as the “imaginary friend.”
A god cannot survive when it takes a form of a living thing unless it somehow feeds off of the thing it is imitating. The Orichalcos God started to take things from Dartz, physical things such as a lock of hair or a vial of tears or a drop of blood. This was enough to keep the young god alive for a time.
When Dartz fell in love with the foreign girl, Iorei, he learned that she was promised to another. Wanting her for his own, he asked the Orichalcos God for a favor. To do away with the foreign prince, he would give anything. And the Orichalcos God, needing to survive, happily obliged. He went and killed the other prince and watched as Iorei fled into Dartz’s arms.
Soon forgotten, the Orichalcos God started to have a change of feelings towards humans. He started to hate humans, he started to want to go back to the realm of the Gods, where he would be safe with the Evergod of Life. But he had intervened with a human life, and was unable to return home. Cast out from his home the Orichalcos God brought chaos to Atlantis and took over Dartz’s body.
Atlantis battle blah knights turned into dragons blah.
Orichalcos God meets Valon, Rafael, and Alister. He sees Valon and Rafael as stronger, and therefore feels more obligated to protect Alister over the rest of them. He promises Alister power, and gives it in a very strange way. This ‘power giving’ stops when Alister turns fifteen and Levi deems that he is strong enough to be on his own. Kinda. (/part of Ali’s headcanon.)
Blah blah blah pharaoh kaiba duel blah defeat blah
Under the name of Levi, the Orichalcos God makes a new life, a life as a demigod, half human, half god. He has all his powers in tact, but he resides in a fully able to be destroyed body. He has recently fallen in love with Mai, Priestess of Sekhmet.
Okay so headcanon on powers. Levi is a God, so he doesn’t have to use the basic rules of magic (which run like Alchemy rules, equivalent exchange and all that…) The Orichalcos is like the Philosopher’s stone for him. He can ‘transmute’ people into monsters, the skill that he used to destroy Atlantis, he can create illusions, and he can shapeshift into any animal or mythical beast, although his favorite is clearly Leviathan. He can read minds, and of course mind control people. His most notable non-transforming skill is that to overshadow, which he does on Dartz for ten thousand years.
Levi’s shapeshifted form, Leviathan, for which he derives his human name, is a sea dragon of legend. Covered in black scales, with glowing red eyes, it has two forms in itself. One, is the less scary looking snakelike form, black scales, a masklike covering over its eyes, and sharp fangs, but no wings or fins. The second, much more terrifying form is that of the Great Leviathan, which I’m sure everyone’s seen if they’ve seen DOMA. The scales have spikes and faces on them, each scale a stolen soul. The Leviathan’s roar is the cry of the tormented souls, along with a banshee like shriek and some dinosaur like roars. A very strange and unsettling sound. Leviathan is very, very large. It can wrap its body around the city of Atlantis three times, and is rumored to be the type of creature that the city was built on the back.
Pure Form - hard to believe, but he does have one. The form is that of a white serpentine dragon, with silver eyes and gold runes on every scale. It is the form he obtained as a young god. It was corrupted and was made into the Great Leviathan when Levi went insane… :l Now he can change into this Divine Form when he needs to protect someone he loves. (which is the only time he uses this form…)
MAI: The new Priestess of Sekhmet, Levi cares for her a lot. He knows that he might mess up, which is why he is slightly afraid to reveal all of the emotions he has to her. But he does think she is beautiful and glorious. He wants her to be happy. EDIT: LEVI LOVES MAI YEAH OKAY GOT IT.
HERMOS: Levi’s former lover. Levi loves Hermos, but he also realizes that perhaps it was not meant to be. He misses Hermos, but knows that the Knight would hate him if he returned. Levi knows it’s best to move on, as much as he doesn’t want to.
TIMAEUS: Levi and Timaeus don’t… well… see eye to eye.
CRITIAS: Levi’s neutral on Critias. He doesn’t like or dislike him.
DARTZ: The former host body of Levi, who he met when Dartz was a little boy. As Dartz’s imaginary friend, Levi leeched off the power of the Atlantean until he was strong enough to create his own form
ALISTER: … What is there to say? Levi was … welp. Their relationship was complicated, a give and take type. Levi did a lot of bad shit to Alister. He therefore understands the redhead’s hatred for him.
VALON: Levi ruined his life. Yeah.
RAFAEL: Levi also fucked his life up too. Good job Levi. Everything’s your fault.
IOREI: The queen of Atlantis with the glory of the rising sun. Levi thinks she’s cool.
YUUGI/ATEM: Levi doesn’t particularly like Yuugi… or Atem for that matter. Atem ruined his plans. Even though his plans were terrible.
SETO KAIBA: … Levi bought KaibaCORP once. :l Pissed Seto off… yeah.
Levi’s true name is Daheron. Those who know it, can control him fully, for that is the way of true names.
Levi’s sword is called Zahael.
