I had this in my head and I wanted it out. Remember this is just an idea I had, nothing is solid or anything official. So don't go tearing after my ass, screaming 'its not canon' or something. I know its not, thank you, but this is art, creativity and its only limited by those that make whatever.
So just bare with me, like it, hate it, don't care about, fine. Just don't spam me with unnecessary hate, 'kay? If you like, go ahead and comment or whatever. Happy to hear your thoughts.
This is just the basic idea of Virus IF he existed in Victubia, I don't have an idea of how he is created or exactly what he can do. So I'll just run the basics that I see in my head, alright? I'll try to make it as understandable as possible.
Also, FYI... I was inspired in thinking about Virus from watching the first season of Legend of Korra again.
The basic idea of Virus, IF
he existed in Victubia, is the fact his ability to manipulate machinery with electricity. But how is it he can use magic? Well, truth be told, for now his 'magic' is merely artificial. He can't generate electricity on his own (as far as I know he can't right now, I told you this idea isn't complete) but he can manipulate it. He's a tech wiz, so he created himself a pair of gloves that generate electricity that he can then bend to his will to do as he wishes.
He 'infects' machinery by slipping electricity into them and then take control, very much like a puppet master. He is skilled with a sword, most likely something lightweight, like rapiers or something, and has backup assassin like blades on his gloves. (Yes, like Assassin's Creed)
He knows he's no match for naturally born mages nor physically stronger than anyone else; to help him over come this, Virus uses his agility and wit to dance toe to toe with the others. He uses knowledge and information to manipulate the outcome of his battles, either he has dirt on you, makes you think he does, or uses your weaknesses against you. Like studying the same magics as the others just to know how to defend against them and even study combat styles of his opponents.
This gives him advantage to try to out-speed you and dance around you, forcing you to use up more of your energy in attacking while he uses less in order to strike at the right moment. For him, its like a game of chess, the moves you make leads him to better understand you and plan around you for counter attack. So everyone better not show all your cards so soon when he's around.
He can be tricked and out foxed if you can catch him by surprise, though be warned, once a trick is used, he'll learn and it'll be useless, probably for a long while. Take out his gloves if you want him to stop firing bolts of electricity at you, but even with them gone, he can still manipulate electricity. He just has to find it. If you can lead him away from any source fo electricity, he's out for magic, but keep in mind he's got some tools on him to use and has his sword with him at all times.
With enough patience, some trickery and team work, Virus can be defeated.
Just remember... as long as there is technology... Viruses.. flaws.. will arise, time and time again.
As for how he is born or created... I have no idea. Like I said, this idea is far from complete, but I figured I just share it anyway since its been bugging me.
