Directly inspired by @Smiley100P's roleplaying thread, Contracts and Conferences, which is itself inspired by my own Umbra Rumble.

To begin, I will make a deimon. The next user to post will create a deimon that can neutralize, defeat, or otherwise counter the previous deimon, and describe how.

For instance, if I created a monkeyshape deimon of Duality named Diego that can swap colors with anything he touches, someone else could counter with a chameleonshape deimon of Radiance named Invisiboy who is totally permeable to light waves, and explain how the monkeyshape deimon's power would have no effect on something that magically has no color. Or that person could post a tyrannosaurusshape deimon of Cosmos named ULTRA-MEGA STOMP-O-TRON 9001 with the power of making his stomps sound squeaky, and have him step on the monkeyshape deimon.

A deimon must have a name, an animal shape, an umbration, and a magic talent. Unlike the more formal roleplaying threads, anything goes here, as long as it abides by the Forum Rules. For instance, you could make up an animal, give it all nine umbrations, and grant it the ability to instantly ignite all stars into supernovae. Anything goes. Obviously, no deimons posted in this thread should be considered reflective of Exvulnerum canon, including the examples I've provided here.

If nobody can come up with a suitable new deimon for an entire week, I reserve the right to reset the thread with an entirely new deimon. This should help combat power creep.

Any deimon ideas posted here are fair game for submitting to the Umbra Rumble. It wouldn't be fair to disallow someone's original Umbra Rumble deimon entry because it happened to resemble a deimon posted in this thread, for example. For those interested in participating in the Umbra Rumble, I recommend you don't use any deimon ideas here that you plan to submit for a Rumble.

Alright, I'll start:

Name: Persissus
Animal Shape: Starfish
Umbration:
Essence
Magic Talent: Always maintains its identity no matter how badly injured or dismembered. Can use its natural starfish regenerative properties to restore itself to its original form, even if reduced to a single cell. As such, any cells that are split off from Persissus will eventually grow into new copies of Persissus. It is estimated that there are currently over 1,000,000,000 Persissus clones living in the oceans of Cresnov.

Wow, worries about power creep but starts off with that.
Name: Sax
Animal shape: giraffe
Umbration: radiance
Magic talent: able to magnify sunlight.

Basically Sax is just going to magnify enough sunlight to boil the oceans to complete evaporation. That should eradicate all the starfish shaped deimons out there. Any that survive will have to be individually cooked. Might take a while but it would work.

I really like the idea of this thread and do not want to see it die. So much that I committed the two cardinal sins of necro and double posting.
If this doesn't get interest this time, I will resign this thread to its fate.

Name: Bob Drunkel
Animal Shape: Angler fish
Umbration: Chaos
Magic talent: Turning sources of light off

Bob will turn off the sun and make Sax really sad.

Name: Rocky
Animal shape: Roc
Umbration: Cosmos
Talent: Is a universal source of annoyance to any and all it encounters.

Rocky sees through Joj's light, and proceeds to lift the pupper and fly over to the nearest ravine, where he casts Joj away in midair with a lightning bolt, just for good measure.

Umbration: Caprice
Talent: Feels absolutely nothing.

Since Rock feels nothing, Rocky cant annoy her. This is a fun silly thread.

Animal Shape: Moose
Umbration: Corporeality
Magic Talent: Despite looking like an elephant, sounding like an elephant, and carrying the same genetic code as an elephant, Elephandro is truly a Mooseshape Deimon. His power simply makes him, for all intents and purposes, an elephant.

Yeah, one of those. Anyway, they're not just elephants, they're all something more.

Name: Omnomnom
Animal Shape: Snapping sea turtle
Umbration: Innervation
Magic Talent: Gaining all unique talents and abilities of the entities it eats.

Since everyone is unique there are so many unique talents and abilities for Omnomnom to absorb and use, Omnomnom becomes the ruler of the world. Basically Omnomnom will become unstoppable due to everyone being unique.

REBOOT!

Name: Babuna
Animal Shape: Baboon
Umbration: Duality
Magic Talent: Babuna is a very vain creature, which is at odds with her outstanding ugliness. Her power allows her to exist within the reflection of any mirror she chooses, replacing the reflection of any sentient being of her choosing. Of course, she only chooses the reflection of the most beautiful people, much to their shock and dismay.

Talent/description: lives in the minds of sentient beings, and can jump from one mind to another.

He goes into sleepyhead's mind, and makes loud noises that only sleepyhead can hear, and wakes him up that way.

That doesn't defeat my deimon. it's not inherently a sound-making deimon, that just happens to be what it did in this situation.

and besides, noise in the mind is not literal noise, and can't be dampened without stopping all the thoughts of that creature.
