Jo Ayara FC Reference - Weapons and Other Powers by Hexidextrous Jo Ayara FC Reference - Weapons and Other Powers by Hexidextrous
This is the third part of my reference sheet of my new FC, Maho Shoujo Jo Ayara. he is one of the new fan-characters that is going to appear in "Maho Shoujo Rika Magika," a Maho Shoujo Madoka Magika-based project of mine, and she is also one of the central characters too, though not as important as Rika Isoni is.

This is the reference on one of Jo's unique skills, her Weapons and other special abilities.


Like all Maho Shoujos who made a contract with Kyubey, Jo has some magic weapons of her own, and some special abilities. She can spawn as many of her personal weapons as she desires, like all the others, and she has other unique powers to help in battle. All of these make her very effective at fighting the Evil Witches.

Here's a list of her powers and abilities.

-Silver Staff: Jo's primary weapon is a silver Magician's staff with a shiny orb on one end, and a large blade shaped like a needle on the other end. When she uses the staff, she can fire stronger versions of her Magic Energy Blasts that also can somewhat change direction in midair, to hit their targets more easily. Also the staff's Bladed End can be uses as an effective Melee Weapon, and she uses this to easily hack through her foes. An interesting other part is that when Jo first cut herself apart to install her brackets, she used the Bladed End of her staff.

-Needle Blades: Jo's second weapon is a series of small needles, which she uses like throwing blades. It is not uncommon for a Maho Shoujo to have multiple different types of weapons, for instance, Mami, Homura, and Kyouko had more than on type of weapon. This is her second weapon, which she uses by summoning them to her hand, and then throwing them at her enemy quickly. They do a lot more harm than you'd think, as for they are enhanced with her magic. These Needle Blades are quite effective at hitting enemies at mid-range, but however, aren't that good for close-combat.

-Magic Energy Blasts: Jo's special ability. She can fire destructive, magic-based energy blasts at enemies, which she uses quite a bit in battle. She can shoot them from her hands or feet, or she can fire them from her Silver Staff. When fired from her staff though, they become slightly stronger, and she can make them slightly curve their direction in midair, so that they hit more easily. Jo can also charge up her individual body parts with the energy for a stronger hit, which is necessary for her Special Attack, her Charged Head Throw. Her blasts also get weaker the more time they are flying in the air. This means that they get slowly weaker and weaker when they are fired from longer distances, and after a while of flying, they dissipate. So she cannot use them as effectively from very long ranges, but they still have decent range to them. However, if a part of her is charged, the energy does not dissipate as quickly.

-Bladed shoes: Though not shown here, you may have noticed that Jo's shoes have pointed blades on the ends of them. These blades on her shoes are to deliver kicks that actually can cut or impale enemies, making her melee attacks more effective. Most of the time, she uses this with her Body Disassembly, to detach her legs and make them kick the enemy really hard from a distance.


All of these qualities makes Jo an extremely skilled Maho Shoujo. She could easily outperform Sayaka and Kyouko, and is about evenly matched with Mami, but Homura and Madoka could still easily overpower her.

Yeah, like Sakuya is the only character to use the "Ninja Maid" trope.

Go ahead if you want. Just don't make her look out of character or bad or anything, but I'll let you do that. I'm glad that you asked permission too.
