Vendeta is a Mobian Hedgehog with psychokentic powers, similar to Silver the Hedgehog. He is the last guardian of the Chronosabre, although he usually adventures outside his post, eliminating threats to the Sabre and the universe in general.
Vendeta is a white-furred Mobian hedgehog. He is rather slender for his body-type. He has two large spines at the back of his head which extend down to his lower back, and a V-shaped tuff of hair on his brow. His eyes are golden-brown in colour, and his skin is tan. He also has a cross-shaped scar on his chest.
The main focus of Vendeta's attire are his PsychGauntlets, white gloves with large, golden protrusions forming around his hand in a claw-shape. He also wears black boots with golden trim. While in space, he wears a black and white suit of armour that links into his boots and guantlets and covers his body. The eyes of the suit also glow blue.
Vendeta and his brother Glass were both orphaned from a young age after their parents died in a mysterious aviation incident, with the brothers being moved to an orphanage in Iravia. Both Vendeta and Glass hated growing up in the orphanage. They were extremely reckless, both getting into trouble at school regularly, although they had a strong bond and were popular within the school. They also constantly asked questions about their parents to the orphanage staff, although they were never given any answers, either because the staff didn't know or didn't care. At the age of 10, Glass was adopted and Vendeta left alone at the orphanage. Heartbroken that his brother and best friend had left him, Vendeta became even more reckless, to the point that by the age of 14 Vendeta ended up hunted by the police for some unknown crime. Although the exact details are kept unknown outside of the Iravian Police Department, it's believed that Vendeta evaded capture using his psychokinetic powers. This attracted the attention of the Guardians of the Chronosabre, who has just lost their Earth opperative.
At the age of 15, Vendeta was chosen as Earth's representative in the Guardians of the Chronosabre, who choose one the strongest psychokinetic from each planet in the universe to guard the blade. Vendeta was trained to use psychokinesis, becoming extremely proficient in it and called a prodigy by some of his teachers, although he still struggled with moving objects. He also became friends with Grey, a rouge Black Arms agent who has been freed from Black Doom's control and had joined the Guardians
10 years after his entrance to the Guardians, the Guardian Tel-Eth led a rebellion against the Guardian's commanders, stating that the Chronosabre's power should be used for the betterment of the universe. The rebellion led to a civil war that tore apart the Guardians. Vendeta chose to defend the Chronosabre, fighting against Tel-Eth. Naively thinking the war would be easy, Vendeta was unprepared for the horrific scenes of the war. 1 year into the war, he was forced to kill Grey on orders from his superiors, but not before his old friends unleashed a psychic slash that left Vendetta with the distinctive scar on his chest. Truely realising what was happening, Vendeta fought viciously, almost becoming completely emotinless.
After 3 years of seemingly endless fighting, Tel-Eth launched a full-on attack for the Chronosabre. The fight round the sabre's alter was a bloodbath, tearing through both sides, until the only members left were Vendeta and Tel-Eth himself. Alone and nowhere near as strong as Tel-Eth, Vendeta was forced to use the Chronosabre, using the time manipulating powers of the blade to warp Tel-Eth 200 years into the future. Drained from using the insanely powerful sword, Vendeta put the sword back. He'd won the war, but at horrific cost. After burying the dead, Vendeta began his career as the Chronosabre's lone protector.
Vendeta makes a cameo in the Uber Secret Ending. He sees Tel-Eth flying away from Earth before saying that he knew he'd return before flying after him.
Powers and Abilities
Vendeta's most noteable ability is his psychokinesis. Vendeta has the power to move and manipulate objects with his mind, although he isn't proficient at this discipline as Silver. He can also generate concussive energy blasts, fly, and fire needles of energy called PsychDarts. He can also use his powers to create limited energy constructs, like swords and walls. These energy-manipulation abilities surpass most pyschics of his level of power.
Vendeta's specific moves include:
PsychDarts: The Guardian's signiture move, Vendeta fires a multiple needles of psychokinetic energy rapidly. Appears as one of his special moves in Depths of Dimensions: Cosmic Slip.
Force Wall: Vendeta creates a wall of psychokinetic energy. He sometimes follows up with a psychokinetic grab once the wall is broken. Appears as one of his special moves in Depths of Dimensions: Cosmic Slip.
Teleport Dash: The same as Silver's ability. Vendeta uses his psychokinesis to move his own molecular structure, allowing him to teleport short distances.
Force Palm: Vendeta fires a blast of psychokinetic energy from his palm. Appears as one of his special moves in Depths of Dimensions: Cosmic Slip.
- Dual Force Palm: Vendeta can combined both of his palms to Force Palm for double the force. First used in The Bloodied Hands Arena/Mac vs Vendeta: Single Battle.
Force Blade: Vendeta creates a sword out of psychokinetic energy.
- Force Longsword: Vendeta creates a massive sword out of psychokinetic energy.
Although originally highly reckless and fun-loving, Vendeta's personality changed drastically after the Guardian Civil War. Vendeta is generally cold and withdrawn and, although he does talk too people he trusts, it's usually in sarcastic remarks. He rarely talks to anyone about his past and he hardly smiles. He is grief ridden from having to kill his fellow Guardians, particularly Grey, and is almost impossible to anger in the sense of the word. Although Vendeta may be angry, he doesn't show it, as his ferocity is usually shown through the strength of his psychokinetic blasts and he either falls completely silent or changes his mid-battle jokes to jeers. However, Vendeta is a good man at heart and upholds traditional heroic values and since the Guardian Civil War has avoided killing when he can. He also usually fights on his own, not wanting to put others in harms way unless they've proven they can handle the situation.
Vendeta considers Tel-Eth his arch-rival. He led the Guardians down a path of destruction that led to the death of the entire group except for Vendeta and Tel-Eth himself. Vendeta holds a grudge against him because of this, especially since he forced him to kill Grey. Tel-Eth is the only one who can actually make Vendeta angry on the outside, and his usual attitude is too attack the alien on sight. He's also the only person Vendeta is willing too kill.
The Story by Fivefold - Main theme/emotion theme. It fits Vendeta's determined spirit pretty well. Everyhing he ever loved has disappeared, and he's still standing and determined to carry out his cause.
Lust Sin from Bazblue: Calamity Trigger - Battle theme. This is mostly here because the vocal version nearly ended up as his main theme due to fitting Vendeta’s will to fight, although it’s chances were hampered by lyrics directly referring to events in Blazblue which obviously didn’t fit Vendeta well.
Behind the Scenes
Vendeta was created by E-113:Xi and immediately put up for adoption. I (Skyblade) actually came across him by complete accident:I hit random page and Vendeta came up. I only had 1 character on the wiki at that point (Ice), so I decided to adopt Vendeta 5 years after initally being posted. Due to being very similar to Silver in the initial design, I decided to make a lot of his elements completely different from Silver, changing the focus of his psychokinesis and making him a cold and relatively cynical character instead of Silver's plucky optimist. His backstory took a lot of influence from the backstory of Green Lantern, particularly Kyle Rayner.
Since adopting Vendeta, he has become one of the defining elements of the continuity, and although I wouldn't say he was the main character, he's definitely the mascot(think how Optimus Prime is on the front of every Transformers movie but the main characters are humans). And I found him by complete luck, which is great!
