ShadoWeaver Holder

Kenny "KC" Chae

The Black Opal

ShadoWeaver

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 ShadoWeaver and the combatants to have carried it.

Minor Power

Create Darkness - The holder of this Opal can create a globe of darkness about the size of a basketball, or use several smaller forms of darkness that would add up to roughly that amount. For example: The Opal can use ShadoWeaver's minor power to blind an opponent for a limited time (roughly a minute to 30 seconds; the larger the amount used the less time you have). It can also be used to hide various items from view.

Major Power

Confuse - Allows the dueler the ability to create several "Shadow" forms of themselves that can potentially confuse and misdirect their opponent. The use of this power is incredibly draining and should be used with caution as it requires a great deal of the Opal's concentration to not only perfect and land the move that will score, but to control the various shadow forms that are seeking to confuse the opponent as well.
