APPEARANCES
CANON


Mary Azkaban is a African-American cop that lives in Seattle, Washington, aided by her Standing Ripple known as Digitalism. She gained her Standing Ripple through unique circumstances, having found a shattered bit of Ripplite from a scene of crime and during investigation of the material, accidentally gave herself a Standing Ripple. She is responsible for most of F.A.N.T's knowledge of Standing Ripples prior to them meeting Sabrine Lee. The character was created by Helena Harper (tbc) for two express purposes: to showcase a modern police force member in the superhuman capital that Seattle has become and to act as a secondary antagonist to Sabrine Lee and allies.

Mary Azkaban is a woman from the Seattle Police Force who works alongside F.A.N.T on matters related to Standing Ripples, a growing epidemic across the area due to the Ocean 11 gang and the growing unrest of a society that is split between normalcy and superhumanity. Her Standing Ripple, Digitalism, is a colony-type Standing Ripple that can be strung together or sent as a group. Their unique properties allow Mary to "program" new abilities for them and then execute them as shouted commands.

Description

Mary Azkaban Description

Mary Azkaban is a African-American woman with black hair and blue eyes, which are highlighted with blue eyeliner. She can usually be seen in her uniform, which is an updated police uniform issued by the Snaily Joe administration. It has a high collar, which conceal two body cameras to the left and right of her that film her when she is on duty. They are tightly sealed into the collar and are impossible to pick out without destroying the gel seal that will activate upon major tampering. The outfit also includes double banded gold cuffs and a police hat. On her chest, she wears the badge and a medal of honor awarded to her for her work with F.A.N.T. She wears gray pants and boots.

Digitalism Description

Digitalism is a collective of up to 10 small, thin metallic creatures that hold a colored gem in their "heads". They can bend and twist their bodies in many unnatural ways and can snap back to their original position with no harm done. Their bodies have a golden/bronze color.

Personality

Far from a rebel, Mary Azkaban is a strict law-enforcing authority that wants to crack down on crime on the out-of-control population that has gained access to Standing Ripples. She has a dominating presence and is well respected by her peers- she does not take abuse and can fight for hours with her words and even longer with her powers and physical attacks. She is completely sober and has not drank any alcoholic substances across her entire lifespan, seeing such things as nothing but distractions.

She is the ideal cop- she does not pull out her gun in most situations, only relying on it for heightened situations where it is absolutely necessary to stop someone else from either attacking her or to hold a gunman at a stalemate. Even rarer is the situation where she finds it necessary to fire- never at the chest or brain, but always at a hand or leg to destabilize her opponent. She tries to deescalate the situation when possible and while can be intense to be around, she thinks out her moves carefully.

Mary Azkaban also has a strict allegiance to her position. She does not feel like she would be better off working for F.A.N.T directly, as this would require her to work on a less local level and not the community she would continue to rather protect more directly. However, she does work in tandem with F.A.N.T and the CIA in cases requiring their attention. However, she will not and cannot follow orders blindly.

Her Standing Ripple, Digitalism, is a collective of small beings. They often pose and dance around Mary Akzaban when active unless given orders, showing that they are willing to serve her given the opportunity. As such, they act almost like her own personal squadron.

Powers and Abilities

Mary Akzaban's powers and abilities come mostly from her Standing Ripple, Digitalism. Digitalism allows Mary to do a variety of tasks with up to 10 of them and can even use them as almost a real-life coding system. They conduct energy through their arms and limbs that allows Mary to bark commands that she has created herself through experimenting with the Standing Ripple to perform different abilities.

On their own, Digitalism is able to operate as spies and record visual information and then broadcast it as holograms for Mary, who can use the holograms to get a real sense of the spatial surroundings and examine evidence from all angles without having to go to the crime scene herself. When two are together, they can swap information by bonking their heads together. Additionally on their own, Digitalism can spark out electricity and channel it through their limbs. When more of them are combined, they can create a power station or serve as a database for Mary with their collective information.

Despite their wealth of abilities and general well-suited nature to the user, they are almost always constantly interacting with the environment. This is their biggest weakness, as they lack intangible states a good lot of the time.

Mary has own combat skills as well, being able to use both a baton and a gun, although she does not use the gun unless she feels it is absolutely necessary- which is incredibly rare. Mary is also a trained runner and has some general advanced movement that allows her to easily catch up with most criminals, even superhuman ones.

Specific Abilities

Digitalism (Commands and Powers)


  • Go Time - Mary Akzaban gives a member of Digitalism a command and then ends it with "Go Time". These are often to record locations or to set themselves up at a location that Mary Akzaban plans to be at later- allowing her to plan routes efficiently.
    • Encore - Digitalism can repeat the last given action immediately when Mary gives this command. This command was created so Mary didn't have to keep track of every single command while in the heat of action.
    • Battlecry - Digitalism switches into conductor mode, causing electricity to pulse off them and for them to shock on touch. Saying "Cease" will cause Digitalism to exit from this mode.
  • Holograms - Digitalism can scan the environment over a period of 20 second intervals and construct 3D holograms that allow Mary to get a better sense of a crime scene without actually having to visit it and put her in possible danger.
    • Mirage (Part One) - Using the holograms, Mary Akzaban can use it during battle to create illusions of objects that aren't there. A single Digitalism is required for this task and can only show objects of a certain size in full color.
    • Mirage (Part Two) - The advanced version of this ability, requiring ten Digitalisms. Mary Akzaban can completely fabricate a room and it's surrondings in full color with hard light- the only way you could tell it was fake is through umbra-based powers or hitting one of the Digitalisms that is projecting the room.
      • Destination Breakdown - Mary can keep someone trapped in a fake room that has completely collapsed, trapping them under hard light constructs. This again, requires all ten Digitalisms.
    • Data Gardens - 5-10 Digitalisms hang back their heads and create a collective database that Mary can use, constructing a hard light computer that she can use to manage their data and storage as well as assess everything at once.
  • Dynamo - While in Battlcry Mode, Digitalism is able to strike with electricity pulsing through their body, with the way they contort and fold their limbs making them turn into almost electrical, giant bullets that spin through the air.
    • Magnets - If four Digitalisms hold hands while in Battlecry Mode, they are able to conduct the electrons to send metallic objects flying away from them in a magnetic pulse. This also acts as an EMP. This is nowhere near as good as say, someone like Sakeena Kamel's magnetism powers, but can serve as a powerful attack in a pinch.
    • Power Station - 5-10 Digitalisms can wrap around each other vertically to create an electrical charging station that quickly charges electrical devices.

Mary's Abilities

  • Runner - Mary is a trained runner and runs early in the morning on weekends or her time off. She can catch up pretty quickly to anyone on the run.
    • Parkour - Mary can leap up walls and climb up poles, as well as land safely when jumping with her basic parkour knowledge.

Weapons

  • Baton - Mary primarily uses the baton in her line of work, able to attack from a lot of vantage points to get someone to the ground or otherwise knock them around.
  • Gun - Mary has a rarely used gun that she does not use without a lot of thinking.

Trivia

  • Mary Azkaban's named stems from two sources:
    • Mary aka Lady from the Devil May Cry series.
    • Azkaban, the prison featured in the Harry Potter series.
    • Her original name was going to be Mary Arkham, but this felt a little too close to source for the author's liking so the name was substituted with another famous fictional prison.
  • Digitalism is named after the band. Their abilities are named after the songs "Go Time", "Encore", "Battlecry", "Holograms", "Mirage (Part One)", "Mirage (Part Two)", "Destination Breakdown", "Data Gardens", "Dynamo", "Magnets", and "Power Station".
  • Mary Akzaban's design and concept was partially inspired by the version of Zonas seen in COLD❄BLOOD. Having helped design that version, Helena Harper (tbc) wanted to take a stab on a police officer character as she noted that she generally lacked one and felt she was relying on F.A.N.T Squad 410 too much.

Overview

Standing Ripple is a concept in the New Fantendoverse used to refer to projections of fighting spirits created by contact with the metal Ripplite. These fighting spirits are created from the hosts' Aura and general will to fight and host incredible but bizarre abilities. These Standing Ripples name themselves, usually off musical artists, and often do not speak or act on their own, but do follow their host everywhere. They have an arguable consciousness; while they can act on their own when not in combat, they do not seem to be consciously aware of their own actions.

Ripplite
RipplitePainted
Ripplite is a mineral/metal alloy that can phase light through it to alter it's properties. It is key to being able to produce Standing Ripples. It comes from Vokkskar-created Catalyst Comets that crash into planets. Ripplite can also inversely be used to cut through Standing Ripples. Given it's weak resistance to force, crushing similar to quartzine mineral, it is not good for weapons.
  • Ocean 11's leader Hammerhead, who has the largest fragment recovered, has used it for monetary gain and on every member of his mob gang.
  • CHELPRO as corporation has a smaller fragment that they are experimenting with.
  • Trent Corona has a very small fragment that he uses in the blade of a laser sword known as the Ripple Ripper.

Trivia
  • Standing Ripples are inspired by the concept of Stands from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The name of the concept is even a reference to both the shorthand (Stand) and it's meaning (Ghostly Ripple).
    • One key difference is that if Standing Ripples interact with the environment, they can be hurt and attacked like a normal character. Additionally, they can be seen by anyone.
  • Standing Ripples could possibly be seen as a new extension of the music numbers that have been present in both the original Fantendoverse and the new Fantendoverse- where as music punctuated pivotal moments in past stories, now they are literally powering characters.
  • Coincidentally, Standing Ripples and Stands were both introduced in the third "part" of their respective series' on going narratives- Standing Ripples in Phase 3 of the New Fantendoverse and Stands in Part 3 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
