"The Tower" is her street name. It's what she got nicknamed in female street-fighting for her height, and now people have come to know her as that when they come to see her dance. Her actual dancer's name though is "VooDoo". She does not like being called by her full first name, so for others who know her more closely she prefers to be called "Ra".
25 y.o. , August 11th
6'0, but in a pair of heels Rashida towers about 6'3 - 6'5
192 lbs., a lot of muscle and curves
Ra is a very laid back chick. She's grown up in the streets and it's what she knows best. She enjoys drinking and partying, but she's not one to get into bed easy. She has a very odd complex about men being inferior to her unless they prove themselves otherwise. She loves to fight, even if she loses. It is through combat that a lot of times Rashida feels she builds trust in others. She uses now what she was picked on as a child to make her cash. Being tall and thick, built like a brick shit-house, she trains herself and fights for spare change. She also puts those mile-long legs to use on a stage every few nights to draw in the extra tips for the men that like a tall glass of chocolate milk to break away from the norm. Rashida doesn't dislike what she does, she's surviving and that's better than most can say.
Ra does have some troubles though, as most do. She's addicted to prescription painkillers and it's through these that she gains her almost inhuman tolerance to being beat down without stopping. Without them she often finds herself snapping and bitchy, with the shakes and sweats. She denies having an addiction when questioned about it, and might even start a fight over it.
Other than these things, she's very relaxed. She has a dark, perverse sense of humor and often acts like one of the guys outside of her occupational businesses. There are no limits with Ra, and the easily offended won't last long in her presence.
Clan & RankEdit
Unknown / None to date
What district do you live in?Edit
Street fighter and Sensei at the Iron Fist Club
1. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
2. Muay Thai
-She mixes the above styles together to create something a bit unique composed mostly of leg moves, disarming moves, grappling / takedowns, and combat catches.
Weapon of ChoiceEdit
Rashida does enjoy using a straight-razor and a set of gold-plated titanium alloy knuckles if she is going to use weapons at all.
Abilities / OtherEdit
Rashida uses a personal qi / ki called "abuuris" or "abu" for short. This personal energy is felt or envisioned as the power of creation, for it is created in her and can create or change circumstances. But in truth when it is expelled, it becomes unstable and turns into concussive energy. She mostly uses her abu to create force in her legs and then expels it concussively through the same vent. This makes it so that Rashida can kick through walls, stomp a crater into the street, or kick a misbehaving man a good ten yards easily. The only drawback is that if she is high on painkillers, her abu is not as powerful as it could be.
! For those wondering, abu is chi, it's just what she calls it. !
Abuuris Moves / UseEdit
Below are a list of fighting moves that utilize Abu and are fairly common or prized by Rashida.
1.) Concussive Staccato Moves / CombosEdit
Concussive Staccato [ Level 1 of 3 ] is a skill that allows her to charge enough abuuris into one or both legs that she begins to accentuate her legs with a greater potential. When a move is performed as a Concussive Staccato move, she unleashes her kicks up to three times the normal speed and often back to back. In a single move, Concussive Staccato can deliver up to seven subsequent back-to-back kicks that can all land within one to three seconds. During this, the vented abu builds up after being released in each kick, then bursts back at the last move which causes the opponent to often be repelled backwards if the attack landed.
~Triple Axel: The Triple Axel starts from either running or a guarding stance. Launching herself into the air by her guard foot, she begins a swift series of three kicks that go from low to high (aimed at the knee, the gut, the head). Because of Concussive Staccato being in play, she appears to be moving almost like a shortlived cyclone with her legs- or for those well trained chi-users who can see her abuuris- it appears like a horizontal tornado of orange chi and silver smoke. Wherever one of the Triple Axel blows land, the abu released is powerful enough to create great damage. Knee- the knee is usually shattered and thus the leg made fairly useless. Gut- the gut is softer, this often does tissue damage (torn muscles) or in someone who is not guarding when it occurs, possible internal organ rupture. Head- well this one's pretty easy, a blow to the head could propel someone back and offers the chance of both broken facial structure (nose / jaw / cheek) as well as a general concussion. Because Triple Axel is a Concussive Staccato move, if one blow lands the rest are extremely highly likely to land as well, making it so that if the move is not avoided completely, it will generally land in its entirety.
-- Regular Abu Moves -- Edit
~Killer Avant: Derived from Muay Thai, this kick can begin from most positions, and has more power if it starts with Ra running towards her opponent. She jumps up and plants one leg on the opponent's thigh, the other leg coming in to the neck. The toe is pointed to the trachea or below the Adam's Apple, and when thrust out, vented with her abu, collapses the lower larynx or upper trachea. The effect of the Killer Avant kick is often suffocation, that without medical treatment will inevitably lead to death.
~Cage Smash: This move serves as an effective counter-attack and is only used in a countering situation. When Rashida is faced with an oncoming punch, she can dip to the side just enough to bring both arms up in a quick gesture, with the lengths of her arms used to redirect the punch (middle of the lower arms pushes against the the lower arm of the opponent while they are punching to 'shove' the punch aside). The momentum of the opponent's punch often has them thus leaning forward into her, and with her now partially behind them as their punch turns their shoulder-blade towards her, she brings up a harsh knee- charged with abu- to their ribcage in a diagonal move. When the abu is discharged with the knee at the side of the rib-cage often between rib 4 and rib 8, she shatters the ribs struck with concussive energy and can often cause a collapsed lung on the side struck- especially if the opponent does not purposefully exhale before the blow lands.
~Chris Brown: This move is a two-piece kick and is used mostly on women though can be used on men. In a jump from standing stance, often a basic Jiu Jutsu stance, Rashida makes a two-piece kick. The move often starts as a jump into a counter-clockwise mid-air turn that allows her right foot to be planted with a powerful blow at the lower pelvis of a female opponent. The abu vented here often fractures the pelvis or can kickstart a woman's period by shaking the uterus lining in the terrifying blow. The turn then allows her left leg to turn and then be shot out in a mid-air thrust kick at the chest. The foot is horizontal so that it can hit both breasts in most cases, and the abu vented here often fractures or shatters the sternum while creating unbelievable pain from stomping the breasts. The Chris Brown is a move that by its end often repels an opponent back.
~The Freddy Facial: Rashida focuses her abu into the knee she plans to attack with, and while facing an opponent extends her arms and locks her hands behind their head. With her support leg firmly in place, she pulls the opponent's head down at the same time that she shoots her attacking knee up and lands the knee against the face. The Freddy Facial releases her abu into the opponent's face, which without the abu would just break the nose. But this move offers the high chance to shatter the nose, cheekbones, and jaw. At the same time the abu when expelled from her knee and concussively striking the face, is enough to make the skin tear and stretch. The end result is a face that is fit for a horror movie.
~Alabama Slammer: This move starts with Rashida being either beside or a little to the side of and behind her opponent. In this position she can bring up a leg- often with a spin (meaning that most of the times she is facing the opponent and takes the outermost leg and does a spinning kick)- where she brings a high reverse kick up that doesn't intended to do base damage, but something else. The Alabama Slammer's desired effect is to get the back of the opponent's head in the back of the knee during the bent reverse spin-kick. This allows Rashida to enclose their neck between her calf and the back of her thigh muscles, and as she continues the kick causes the opponent to be slammed down off of their feet and their body put below and beneath her against the earth.
None at the moment.
