real name: Kazuma D. Maxwell
a half elf half devil born in a small village on the Diamond continent
having the misfortune to be born in an especially conservative, xenophobic village, Kazu was shunned and ignored by the other elves, growing up bitter and resentful
one day he stumbled onto the Cursed Arm "Maoh", giving him the power of influence at the cost of trapping him in a child's body...
...at first it could only cause other Lost Technology to malfunction, but as he unlocked more and more of its secrets, he learned that it could control other Lost Arms, and even influence weaker minds...
using the power of Maoh, Kazu was able to win the Tournament of Rule, thus becoming King of Espada, a position he has kept for many years, due in part to his 4 followers: the "Ace of Spade", "Queen of Heart", "Jack of Diamond", and "Wild Joker"
in time, Kazu's real identity was all but forgotten... now known only as 'the King': a feared tyrant who commands unspeakable powers..
"Ace of Spade"
real name: Asura Kain
wielder of the Cursed Arm "Shinigami": a scythe crafted in the image of the angel of Death
Asura met Kazu during the Tournament of Rule, then just an ordinary warrior, drunk on the power of Shinigami, Kazuma easily defeated him
humbled by his defeat, Asura dedicated himself to becoming stronger, strong enough to master Shinigami, and Kazuma became his first and only friend...
"Queen of Heart"
real name: 'Titania'
an anonymous young girl of the angel race, was brought back from the brink of death using Lost technology
the result, is a body that is approximately 60% machine, essentially making the girl a living, breathing, Lost Arm
King's enemies had hoped to use her as a weapon against him
...unfortunately, the Lost technology in her body is subject to the influence of the King's Mao
thus, instead of deposing a tyrant, they wound up handing him a dangerous new toy...
"Jack of Diamond"
real name: unknown
wielder of the Cursed Arm "Kimera", an Arm that modifies the user's body, making him part beast
much of his background is unknown, even to 'jack' himself
he has 3 large curved horns sprouting from the top of his head, poison spines covering his back, bulky forearms with 3 digit claws, hooves for feet, a lion's tail, and the left eye of a cat
Kimera's core stone is affixed at his chest
he wears "the Mask of Identity", a powerful Cursed Arm that lets him assume the shape and persona of any individual he chooses
...the cost, however, is that his own appearance, identity, and history, are erased, permanently
he has no face, no fingerprints, no name, and no past...
