▌ // Section II - Equipment. // ▌
◘ Inventory (Armour and weapons.):
► 2x Tiger claw custom "Bracer Dusters".
Each claw is custom made by a Japanese weaponsmith who goes by the alias "Takehisha" . They are constructed from steel and various alloys. The steel has been folded in a manner similar to traditional samurai sword, with great amounts of layers, and solid, thick struts of metal.
They fit on Joey's arms and cover from the hand up to the elbow, making them bracers in technical terms. Each bracer wraps all the way around the forearm, with a hinge-like device attached to the wrist that allows for the "glove" attachment to have good flexibility and movement.
On each of the knuckle segments of the dusters there are three stubby, razor like spikes, roughly two inches in diameter at their base and two inches long.
Running along the palm, and meant for gripping with the whole hand, is a cylindrical strut. It has three buttons on it positioned for easy access for the second and fourth finger. The first button activates a spring mechanism, that sends the two outer "claws" of the duster shooting out of the glove, on an telescopic rod (30cm long). The same button retracts the two claws if they are out.
The second button shoots a high voltage of electricity through the glove partition of the gauntlet. However if the first button is activated, then the electricity travels along the extended claw's poles only. Again, clicking the same button again will stop the current, or it will stop automatically after eight seconds as a fail safe.
The third button is a quick release button that must be pressed and held down for three seconds. This button opens all the locks of the knuckle dusters, and un-equips them in seconds.
Although both knuckle dusters have subtle differences, they both have the same buttons and button functionality.
Knuckle 1 (left)
This duster has an large disc built onto the top side of the hand. It curves into a point at the center and is lipped at the bottom. It is about 50cm in diameter, and is detachable when needed.
Knuckle 2 (right)
In place of the buckler this has a row of barbed claws. These claws have no extending functionality. The two outer claws are 30cm long, and the middle is 35cm.
V.2.0 "Striking Tiger" improvements
The gauntlets, after having a few improvements implemented after HoH now have several new features.
◘ Electrical absorption.
Conductors are now implemented upon the glove part of the gauntlets. Whenever electricity is discharged within a 10 foot radius of Joey, a button press will ignite the absorption mechanism, and all electricity will be sucked into the gauntlets, thus charging them up for a stronger electricity release when needed. The power increase depends on how much was absorbed.
◘ Long range discharge
The gauntlets can also shoot "bolts" of electricty from the palms now. If running from internal source only it takes one post to charge up a bolt in each gauntlet, however if the gauntlet has just absorbed electricity from an alternate source it can fire the bolts in the same post, or store them for shooting in a later post.
V.3.0 "Barricade" improvements
One of the more recent improvements to the bracers are the ability to spout small oval fans of steel from the forearm section. These can change shape dramatically (biggest diameter=5 feet) but restrict attack power greatly. At their biggest, they prevent Joey from attacking at all due to their sheer size.
◘ Electric Bubble
Further building upon the electric attributes of the weapon, the electric bubble is exactly what it sounds like. A barrier that surrounds Joey and shocks anything foreign objects that come into contact with it with a 10,000 volt shock. It has no physical reflective powers however.
► 1x Steel plated headband.
The headband is made from a thick black cloth, about three feet long, and half a foot wide. On the front of the headband is a relatively thin piece of blackened steel that is about the length and width of Joey's forehead. It is bracketed at the back with a foam-rubber padding for added protection and comfort.
► 2 x steel knuckle belts.
These are simple steel knuckle dusters that only cover the knuckles on Joey's hands. Each one has a steel handle for grip, and has foam-rubber composite along the inside for comfort and impact sponging. Can be bolstered with detachable spikes.
► 2 x Steel leg bracers.
These are simple pieces of steel armour that covers Joey's shins. Each is lipped at the bottom where it opens up onto the foot. They only cover the front of the shins, with thick leather belts on the back that tie around Joey's legs. They are bronze with a black trim.
► 1x custom breastplate.
The breast plate is hardened steel and bronze alloy. A defined torso pattern has been indented into the breast plate, bordered by several small studs. The piece has been colored bronze, with deep red cuttings.
◘ Inventory ( misc and non-combat related.)

A simple blue duffel bag, handy for storing items that one may need on their travels.

▌ // Section III - Abilities and skills.// ▌
► Muay Thai Boxing.
Joey has been training in Muay Thai boxing since he was a small child, therefore he is extremely proficient in the martial art. He trained in a genuine Muay Thai camp in Thailand for numerous years, and has won various tournaments through-out his career.
► Shotokan Karate.
Shotokan is Joey's second martial art. He started learning it from a later age than with Muay Thai, but is still fairly proficient in it. He utilizes the style well in MMA fights.
► Long distance running.
Due to various sports, martial arts, and general fitness training, Joey is a top athlete. Comparable to professional runners, his stamina and muscle build is the perfect blend to create a well rounded athlete.
Through-out college and University, Joey specialized in three things. Engineering was one of them, in which he earned a diploma.
The second subject he studied was Italian. He had dreams of moving there and teaching English (which he actually did at one point.) He is extremely fluent in the language.
The third and last subject he studied was Biology, allowing him to branch out in his teachings. Though he hasn't worked as a biology teacher yet, or in any scientific area of work at all, he plans to look deeper into the subject in his later years.
Though not an actual ability, when things are looking the worst for Joey, he gets a sudden burst of adrenaline and can push through it with all his strength. It takes alot to make him give up, and he always puts 100% into anything to do with fighting.
► Steel skin.
After a strange encounter with his sensei's spirit, Joey absorbed mystical energies from him, and gained a strange new ability. Although he had never shown any potential for magic in the past, he now felt a strange super-natural presence within himself.
During a fight shortly after the spirit fiasco, As Joey was taking a beating, a strange silver material suddenly emerged from a wound on the back of his neck. It was as hard as steel, and seemed to not restrict movement at all, almost like a second skin.
Since that event Joey has referred to his strange skill as "Steel skin" and has since learned to control it at will. Strangely the skin can only be activated in short bursts (5 minute periods with a 30 minute cool down between uses)
► Magic resistance
Joey has a high natural resistance to magic and other forms of non-physical energy. Magic in it's purest form (elemental, runic, enchantments) are resisted by 50%, wheras other forms of magic based abilities (various generic energies and what not.) are resisted by 25%.

▌ //Section V - Timeline.// ▌
◘ Age 8 - Starts learning Muay Thai boxing. Joey was quite a frail, shy boy. His father enrolled him into a martial arts class at his local sports center, and that is where his love for martial arts began. Through learning the arts, and performing various techniques infront of the class his confidence grew over time and eventually aided him in coming out of his shell completely.
◘ Age 12 - Starts up Shotokan after developing Muay Thai to a competitive level.
At the age of 12, Joey was a competent fighter and was extremely interested in fighting as a sport. He was most interested in MMA, as it was the most exciting to watch on T.V. This made him want to start another martial art so that he could improve his vast array of fighting knowledge, hence he took up Shotokan Karate as well as Muay Thai.
◘ Age 15 - Leaves high school to travel to Thailand and join a Muay Thai Academy.
After completing his GCSE's early and becoming bored very quickly, Joey learned through his current Muay Thai teacher, that it was the season for the kid's in Thailand to go and join a Muay Thai camp for brutal, yet masterful training. Joey pleaded with his parents to send him over there for the training, and eventually they agreed.
◘ Age 17 - Returns back to England with a new found knowledge and love for Thai food, aswell as highly developed martial skills. After the two and a half years of training with the Muay Thai master's, Joey's skills had improved considerably, he had outclassed his sensei, but still attended classes out of respect. After a year of attendance, Joey finally decides to leave the classes to pursue the opening of his own Dojo in central London, but for that he needed money. He applied for Harvard college at the age of 18.
◘ Age 19 - During his years at Harvard, Joey studied Italian, Biology and Engineering at the top level. During this time he didn't let up with his martial arts training, and took home two regional trophies at the age of 19.
◘ Age 20 - Sets up traditional Muay Thai Dojo in London with his former Muay Thai sensai. Harvard sponsored him because of the press it would bring them. It takes off well as a business and provides them both with a decent living.
◘ Age 22 - Joey completes University with top marks and three Diploma's. Leaving his Dojo in the hands of his capable sensei, he decides to return to Thailand for a six month brake and a meet up with his other Sensei who had taught him back in the camp days.
◘ Age 24 - Returns to England to find his Master had died of a heart attack during his sleep. feeling depressed and uninspired, he shuts down the dojo temporarily and once more takes off from his home to travel and master the ways of the fighter, whilst trying to find his true calling in life.
(IC Story line starts here.)
◘ After being recruited by a strange mage to accompany a group of travelers to a hidden shrine somewhere in the vast jungles of Gaia, Joey came close to death, and gained a strange magical stone from the mage as a result. After a few bouts of combat with the mage, he proved to him that he was fit to keep the stone without any training, and left shortly after. (stone added to inventory.)
◘Being woken up by a large dragon breathing fire on a nearby tavern, Joey beat the hell out of it, and ripped out a few of its teeth as a souvenir. Shortly after, he received a "special treat" from a few of the taverns maids, and gained a morale boost for a short period. (lol)
◘ Joey resides in the vast country-sides of Gaia, testing his mettle against various fighters and monsters alike. Most recently he is attending a mixed martial arts tournament known as the "Gaia Tenkaichi Budokai"
◘ Losing against a fighter by the name of "Deitric" in the third round of the GTB, Joey refused going onto the losers bracket and chose instead to leave the establishment in search of more training and a fresh new challenge.
◘ Joey took a boat trip with a few old friends, across the great gaian seas and ended up on a tropical island. Here he met the ancestral spirit of his deceased sensei, and nearly had a mental break down as a result. After a bit of soul searching and a lengthy lecture from his late teacher, Joey regained a sense of stability and absorbed mystical energies from his sensei's spirit form. (Abilities updated.)
◘ Entered the prestigious HoH tournament of 2009 as part of Team Britain. Won first two rounds before being knocked out in the 3rd.
◘ Entered the "Black Dragon" tournament in Barton and came first, killing two opponents and losing a toe.
◘ After many years of fighting, the trusty old bracer-dusters, Joey's signature move, felt like they needed a polishing up. Visiting an old friend in Tokyo, he recieved several small upgrades to his favourite weapons.(Equipment updated)
