|~ Asura to Deus|
Asura is the main protagonist as well as the titular character and a hero of the action beat 'em up game Asura's Wrath. His Mantra Affinity is Wrath. Voiced by Liam O'Brien (English) and Hiroki Yasumoto (Japanese).
Originally Asura lived a content life with his wife, Durga and child, Mithra. He was a student of the great warrior, Augus, along with his brother-in-law Yasha. Asura and Yasha fought many of the monstrous, Gohma. One day Asura was confronted in the Emperor's castle by Sergei, Wyzen, and Kalrow who tried to persuade him to join for what they called, "The Great Rebirth", but Asura declined. For his refusal his daughter was made a priestess, subject to duty to the deities, and Asura was framed for murder. Durga was killed, Mithral held back him and his reputation destroyed, Asura spends the subsequent games going on quests to pay his rivals in the Seven Deities back for taking everything from him.
Skills and abilities
As a demi-god, Asura naturally has many abilities which are inherently super-human. Even among demi-gods though Asura is substantially stronger and tougher than most. He is so strong he can hold-back other entities that have enlarged themselves to a planetary scale. The angrier Asura gets, the more endurance he builds up, his increased rage can turn him into an unstoppable killing machine. Asura learned how to be a great warrior from Augus and has centuries of fighting experience. Asura's real strength though, is his transformation. Asura can assume specific form, each of which takes on it's own phenomenal physical properties, from gaining damage-resistant-armor to manifesting rage as burning flames.
Asura is inherently a warrior. He remain determined to the point of stubborn and is very quick to anger. He prefers to charge into situations head-first, using force as others would breath. Asura dislikes accepting the help of others and prefers to remain self-reliant. Asura is still conscientious at heart his warrior's mentality often keeps this part of himself concealed though.
