IceDancer Holder

Eregor

The Blue Opal

IceDancer

At the end of Diamond Quest XI, a new rank came into being in the Outback. The six that placed highest among the seventeen competitors took home gems that night, only one of them was the coveted diamond.

There has been speculation far and wide about what the opals actually are, or what purpose or power they serve. All we know for sure is that it is a highly competitive title among those in the Duel of Fists, obtained only by those willing to pit their skills against the best of the best. Each of the rocks conveys certain small powers to the fighters who hold them, what follows are the details of IceDancer and the combatants to have carried it.

Minor Power

(De)Hydrate - This power can control small amounts of water (no more then five gallons) and cause it either to appear or disappear at will. Water could be used for drinking, a distraction, or to be dumped on someone's head

Major Power

Ice Form - The user of Icedancer's major power has the ability to control the structure of their own body so it becomes as hard as ice. Useful for either offensive or defensive attacks. Use of this power also has the drawback of greatly reducing the speed of the user, leaving them open for possible counterattack.

Extended Powers

The opals were shattered during the 100th Diamond Quest and brought back together during the 101st. With the reforging, the opals are more powerful than ever, though no longer keen to lend their gifts to just anyone unless doing so fits with their schemes. Quite often, they demand an exchange for what they share and leave their mark upon the user in return.

Methodical and resourceful, IceDancer has always been able to harness the properties of water to shield its holder, slow down an opponent, or even turn their offense against them. The blue Opal can now take this even further and manipulate any type of liquid, including that which is present in all living things. Additionally, holders can delve into the memories of water, constructing images and recreating past events. Beware though...these reflections of the past can drive a holder to obsession.

Eregor     2020-08-23 - Present   ( 31 days )

♦ 08-23-2020 Not content with the results of his previous attempt, Eregor set out once more to wrangle IceDancer from Gren's hands. The first match started out with a slight favor to Gren in the opener. Over the next eleven grueling rounds the lead was exchanged several times yet never passed the threshold of a single point lead. After three consecutive sudden death rounds, Eregor managed to secure the first duel with a well time toss. The second bout saw a bit of a different curve. Early on the fighters were evenly matched until Eregor began to mount what looked like a steady pace to finalizing his first Opal. Gren wasn't content with the pace and managed to rally back to sudden death from a 4-2 deficit. Much like the first challenge and duel of this one, it took sudden death for the win- Eregor claimed IceDancer with a planted kick, winning in two duels 5-4 in 12 and 5-4 in 11.

Gren Blockman     2020-05-24 - 2020-08-23   ( 91 days )

♦ 05-24-2020 Gren set out to contest Matt for IceDancer stating it to be his last hurdle before he would attain the prestigious achievement of All-Title Holder in the Duel of Fists. The first of two fights snowballed in Gren's favor culminating in a shutout, 5-0 in 7 rounds. The second started out in Gren's favor as well as he rattled off to a 3-1 lead. Matt pulled it back to a tie at 3-3 before Gren ultimately sealed the challenge with a score of 5-3 in 11. With this win Gren joined the elite echelon that bear the title, Heir of Stormfist.
♦ 07-05-2020 Using his challenge grant Eregor would be the first test to Gren's reign as holder of IceDancer. The first duel between the two would amount to a staggering 12 round slugfest with half the rounds teetering on sudden death. Gren ultimately claimed the victory with a well timed jab. The second duel was a quicker affair yet just as evenly contested. Gren lead by a point for most of the duel before it too went to sudden death, where Gren sealed the deal with his stalwart defense. Gren won the night with two wins, 5-4 in 12 and 5-4 in 7 respectively earning his first defense.

Matthew Algiers Simon     2020-04-29 - 2020-05-24   ( 25 days )

♦ 04-29-20 With the Opals newly reformed and the Simon family's well documented obsession with the gems, it perhaps wasn't surprising that both Matt and Koy issued challenge within minutes of each other. Matt chose to challenge for IceDancer, the Opal with which he'd set longest-reign and consecutive defense records in the past. Although Hope won the first duel in a much easier fashion than the score suggests (5-3 in 8), she found Matt taking a lead she couldn't come back from in the second (5-3 in 7). Hope jumped out to a 4-2 lead in the final duel but couldn't secure the final point (5-4 in 10) leaving Matt to reclaim IceDancer!

Hope     2019-07-31 - 2020-04-29   ( 273 days )

♦ 07-31-19 Once Eden Parker won Diamond Quest XCVIII in mid July, Hope was free to come after IceDancer again, and she did, taking Dizzy down in short order with 5-3 in 11 and 5-3 in 9 victories. With the loss, Dizzy fell one day short of Jin's reign-length and settles into 3rd place for longest single IceDancer reign at 586 days.
♦ 01-06-20 Citing personal reasons for doing so, Koyliak VanDuran-Simon challenged Hope for the blue opal. Though it took all 3 duels (Hope 5-2 in 7; Koy 5-4 in 9; Hope 5-2 in 8), Hope notched another defense and kept hold of IceDancer!

Dizzy Flores     2017-12-22 - 2019-07-31   ( 586 days )

♦ 12-22-17 Dizzy fought hard to claim IceDancer, losing the first bout (5-4 in 13). She came on strong in the second with a dominating performance (5-1 in 5). She had trouble with Jin Chae in the final bout, by the sixth round they were tied at 3, but Dizzy took the next two rounds to win the opal, (5-3 in 8).
♦ 02-25-18 After several reschedulings, Diz finally got into the ring with Gren and put down his challenge in 2 bouts. 5-3 in 7 and 5-1 in 6.
♦ 04-13-19 Looking for a workout, Hope Naharis challenged Diz for IceDancer on April 3rd and the match was scheduled for the 13th. On April 12th, though, Hope won Diamond Quest XCVII (her third career Diamond title) and the challenge to Dizzy did not proceed.

Andrea "Apple" Anderson     2016-04-03 - 2016-05-14   ( 41 days )

♦ 01-24-16 Hope came out on top of a 6 person field to win DQ LXXXIV, leaving IceDancer vacant.
