Noir's natural eye color is grey. Noir cover his left eye with a golden faceplate. Noir also wear a necklace with a dagger shaped pendant.
Noir is a very closed & quite individual because of his childhood trauma where he accidentally destroyed his family's household when his power awoken, killing everyone in it. Due to this he always treated his "gift" as a form of a curse to him & others when he was a child. By time, he managed to control power to his will. However despite this, he retained his cool & calm nature.
Noir was saved & took by the Gra Skugga when they discovered him in the city streets, starving to death. Despite the act of the league by saving his life, he always considered that the real reason the Gra Skugga made him a member of the league was because of his power's hellish nature that make him dangerous to others. Because of this, Noir stated that he has neither real loyalty nor compassion for the members of the Gra Skugga. However, he will still sacrifice his life for everyone he care about.
Noir was born in a remote village at the mountain tops, far away from the cities below, where snow would pour down all year long. The village itself was well known, albeit no outsiders would climb all the way up there due to the harsh terrain that was required to be pass through in order to reach the village, and so Noir grew up without knowing the outside world. He was the only child of his parents. His mother named him "Noir" as he was born during a very dark midnight. His father was a gifted ice carver. His sculptures and carvings were famous both in and outside the village. Selling carvings was more than enough for him to make a joyful and living family. All was well for this small yet happy family, until Noir had experiencing odd dreams. In the dream he was visited by an old man, who claimed himself to be an ascendant of his family. He told Noir that he was destined to have the power tha can either save or destroy the world. The old man came to Noir's dream every night. White streaks also started appering on his hair. Strange phenomenons also started happening around the village as well. One of them was when the snow stop falling for a week.
Noir use a unique Zweihander style in combat. His fighting style relies on utilizing his vast array of moves & stances to keep the opponet guessing his next move. His attacks have mid to far range and are very damaging. Most of them however, are very slow to perform. Should a player is not experience or is not familiar with his style, the small gap between his attacks can be use as an opening to counter.
Noir also has supernatural abilities. He has the power to summon the "cold breeze from the depths of hell". The "breeze" manifest itself in the form of a white mist. Apparently, the breeze itself is so cold that it burns anything that it touch. He can also create ice & crystal construct with his power. These constructs are indestructable, although certain weapons like the soul swords have the ability to destroy them.
Overall, Noir can be considered as a mid-to-high tier character.
Förmörkelse is Noir's main weapon. It is a giant dark sword that was crafted from a "sky rock" that fell to earth a long time ago. Förmörkelse had been inherited through generations by the members of the Gra Skugga. The sword's unique "unworldly" material allow it to withstand the effects of Noir's power, whereas other materials will simply crumble to dust or burn should it be expose to the hell breeze.
