|~ Baek Seung-Chul|
Baek Seung-Chul is the prodigal son of a well-known police officer who dismantled entire gangs with only a baseball bat. As a result, Seung-Chul looked up to his father and aspired to be like him. However, in one case, Seung-Chul's father managed to arrest the head of a powerful organized crime group, only for said criminal to be let go due to a lack of evidence. His father was then ambushed and assassinated by a member of said group, leading to Seung-Chul's disillusionment with heroes, chivalry, and the law. He enters the tournament to see how far his studies will take him rather than for any particular wish, but his defeat at the hands of Han Dae-Wi along with the chivalrous demeanor the latter shows to him restored Seung-Chul's former dream. He later enters the Sage Realm with Jin Mo-Ri and the rest of the main team, upon which King Uma fell in love with him for commenting on her beauty without lusting over her horns like her subjects. When she was about to be killed she instead used her cut-off horn to form a direct contract with Seung-Chul, becoming his Charyeok and empowering him in the process.
Powers and Stats
Tier: 8-A | Likely 5-A
Name: Baek Seung-Chul
Origin: The God of High School
Classification: Human, Charyeok User, Key
Powers and Abilities: Superhuman Strength, Superhuman Speed, Superhuman Endurance and Stamina, Expert Swordsman (Mimics a French fencer participating in The God of High School Tournament), Experienced and well-versed in a wide variety of mathematics and sciences, Excellent movement control (can redirect a bat swing that missed to hit at exceedingly acute angles without losing momentum) | Enhanced Senses, Immunity to extreme temperatures and conditions (including space), Air and Wind Manipulation on a massive scale, Flight
Speed: Massively Hypersonic+ (Comparable to Han Dae-Wi and Yu Mi-Ra) | Massively FTL (Can keep up with Jin Mo-Ri who has intercepted and blocked attacks from another Solar System. Also kept up with the Crown Princes, who have reacted to and countered the RJB's extension, which is hundreds - potentially thousands - times the speed of light (the staff went from the Moon to the Earth in less than a second)].
Lifting Strength: Class E+ (On par with Jin Mo-Ri.)
Striking Strength: Multi-City Block Class (Disoriented Dae-Wi momentarily) | Large Planet Class(Comparable to Jin Mo-Ri, can stop an earthquake simply by sneezing.)
Durability: Multi-City Block level to Small Town level (Barely withstood a full barrage from pre-timeskip Dae-Wi) | Large Planet level (Fought evenly with the Second Crown Prince).
Stamina: Average (Put up a decent fight against Dae-Wi but lost after getting hit with three parts of Dae-Wi's full combo) | Very High (Survived his fight with the Crown Prince which included being impaled and slashed several times and continued fighting with enough stamina left over to knock out Mo-Ri Hui).
Range: Extended melee range with bat, several meters with Lance de Combat | Planetary with wind (wiped out a wave of magma that was to engulf the Sage Realm)
Standard Equipment: Baseball Bat | Pacho Fan; a divine weapon that can vaporize armies of gods with continent level durability and repel the force of a planet-wide eruption of magma in one swing. It is currently made of Barbadium, a nearly indestructible metal from Heaven, and houses Uma's soul. It can open several ports to reveal thrusters that can eject bursts of wind that can be used to speed Seung-Chul up and give his attacks incredible cutting power (Easily sliced off the top an entire mountain range and killed the Second Crown Prince).
Intelligence: Seung-Chul is an absurdly gifted prodigy. He was reading advanced literature by age four, learned nine other languages by age eight, mastered chemistry, physics, and mathematics by age nine, Eastern and Western philosophies by age eleven, and medicine and modern sports by age thirteen. He can make out the events and outcomes of a fight that happened weeks or even months ago just by looking at the craters left over in the aftermath. He is extremely analytical in combat can pick apart and can copy most moves (though not with complete physical proficiency) after seeing them once (as shown when he imitated the Hwechook and the Lance de Combat). In addition, his mastery of math and science allows him to perform improbable movements with ease, such as throwing his bat to trip Dae-Wi in such away that the bat would be sent back into his hands.
Weaknesses: Arbitrarily skeptical about the supernatural. Pacho Fan creates a vacuum in its wake, forcing him to hold his breath when using it on an extreme scale. New to his powers, has yet to gain full mastery due to his tendency to fight passively and overanalyze his opponent's movements before striking.
Notable Attacks and Techniques:
Lance de Combat
- Douze Lance de Combat: Strikes twelve vital points on an opponent's body nearly simultaneously while spinning his baseball bat at high speed.
- Soixante Lance de Combat: Same as above, but strikes seventy-two points on the target's body insteadt.
- Ability Unlocking/Sealing: Being a Key, Seung-Chul has the ability to seal Charyeok as well as release the limiters of humans to allow them to achieve their maximum potential.
- Pacho Fan: By calling the name of the fan he can unleash exceedingly powerful bursts of wind that can extinguish continental and planetary streams of lava instantly.
- Oxen King Avatar: Recites a seemingly nonsensical formula that releases Uma from the Pacho Fan, allowing her to summon ox-shaped blasts of energy to attack while also allowing her to give advice directly to Seung-Chul.
- Enter Nirvana: After revealing the Barbadium core of his bat, Seung-Chul rushes past his opponent with a massive gust of wind. Afterward, several cartridges are discharged from the bat before massive gust sweeps in, slicing the target in half and devastating the landscape.
Key: Base | Charyeok
