The United International Chess Tournament XVII is just over the horizon! This is a fierce and world-renowned competition, drawing in (Chess) fighters from all across the world! Who will claim this year's title of GRAND CHESSMASTER EXTREME!?
Fantasy world, not Earth. You can make up countries and cultures if you want! It can also contain like America because why the hell not.
-Make sure to specify whether the character is a competitor or not! They don't have to be!
-If they are a competitor, try to briefly explain their playing style. Do they have any odd quirks in their game? Do they use rooks and ONLY rooks? Are they just BATSHIT INSANE? Tell us!
-Chess is being used as a premise, not a motif. Every character does not have to be Chess-based! Actually most of them probably shouldn't be.
-Just to be clear, yes, this is parodying fighting games.
Gideon Corbeil (Competitor)
Gideon hails from a country that no longer exists after the Barkat Empire wiped it off the face of the planet. He is the sole survivor, a prophet who can accurately predict the future during hallucinations. If he wanted, Gideon could focus his ability and predict the future non-stop, but he chooses not to in order to maintain his sanity.
He came to the Chess Tournament because one of his hallucinations told him to. Whether he's supposed to win or not, Gideon doesn't know. He'll find out when his next hallucination comes around!
Gideon plays best when under a hallucination, mainly because they allow him to KNOW what moves his opponent will make in the future. At the same time, he has limited control over his body and sometimes he'll do completely unexpected things like accidentally moving the wrong piece or SMASHING A CHAIR INTO PIECES.
Gideon has long brown hair and a thick, scraggly beard. He wears the tattered robes of his wiped out race. His most notable physical feature are his piercing eyes. He has no pupils; his eyes practically glow. Generally, he's in a whimsical mood, despite his impressive powers.
