That was a good read, and finally another female claymore. For a second I thought I'd be the only femme fatale. As for the skill I don't see any problem with it either. Infact its befitting for a character who merits the title of being the eye to be able to sense yoki from long distances away while being able to hide herself almost completely. And as El said it ties in with what I'd expect from a Claymore universe.
PS: I'm really wondering how we should rank these profiles.

If doing only half thrust it takes only ¼ second to do it accurately and 1/32 second without accuracy, however the effective range is reduced to approximately 5 meters. This technique depends on hitting a critical point or hitting often given the small area of damage equivalent to the claymores tip.If its going to be a whip sword like weapon from Soul Calibur, the one Ivy uses, you could also in theory say that the way you handle the weapon you can create sonic boom with the whip lash, causing the air to become like a projectile type of weapon you could fire? Well just an idea seeing as how Claymores can use their weapons to do things thats normally considered impossible.This I see as kinda feasible, the elemental strike thing though, not at all. However, the changes I would make to this would be to make your sword kinda like the bandits falcon sword from volume 4, a blade that can extend like a whip giving it long range. Then using a yoma powered thrust and extending the blade you get a similar effect.
Nick: Dasher Lindy
Though Claymores do not need to eat much, Lindy eats more and enjoys eating more than the average Claymore. Her favourite dishes are roasted chicken and roasted duck meat. It's of utmost importance for her to keep her hair styled and her attire to be neat at all times. Lindy also likes the colour blue and loves her blue handle Claymore the most.
Lindy dislikes impolite and inconsiderate characters. She also stays away from characters who smokes or drinks excessively. Characters that dress shaggily will leave a bad impression on her as Lindy dresses neatly and expect the others to dress neatly too.
Lindy is a polite character who will be friendly to even strangers. Once she has determined a character to be her friend, she will be willing to go all out for that character. She is more of a follower than a leader and is always willing to obey an order and to co-operate with others in the team.
Pretty character Take note of the blue handle
Special Skill: Lindy-Dash
Holding onto her Claymore and not letting go, Lindy can perform a dash at high acceleration. Lindy-Dash can be performed in two different situations.
Situation One: (From afar) Dashing from afar at high acceleration, Lindy smashes into the object with high impact, breaking even the thickest walls. However this is only applicable if Lindy is able to have a clear path of at least 50m to accelerate before hitting the target.
Situation Two: (From near) Lindy moves the objects along with her Claymore in the direction that she is dashing. Not as destructive as the fully accelerated dash but such a move allows her to at least pierce thick armours. Lindy is able to perform such an act as long as her Claymore is in contact with the target. She will be able to thrust the Claymore into the armour of the target after pushing the target with her Claymore for some distance. After piercing into the target, the damage will increase drastically as time passes for as long as the Claymore is in contact with the target. The longer the Claymore stays pierced into the target, the higher the damage.
The only memories that Lindy had was that of her already in the organization. She did find out that the organization is a place that took in orphans and thus did not probe into her past as she realized that it would not change her present situation anyway.
Lindy was given a “special” Claymore training and she survived the tough Claymore trainings without the support of the other Claymores. Hence, she came out of the organization without knowing anyone except for her handler. She thus hoped to interact more with others and to find a friend who she can pass her black card to if she ever reaches her limit.
Due to her politeness and the way she treat others with respect, Lindy is highly favoured by her handler and is always chosen for missions that involve interaction with humans in towns. However the willingness to believe others land Lindy into troubles at times.
Old Woman: Please, have pity on me. I have not eaten for days.
Lindy: Ok. Here you go (Lindy passes all her money to the Old Woman)
*Lindy has to hunt for food in the forest for the next few days.*
Let me know if I need to change anything.

If there is still a place for me, I would like to sing in
Likes: Money,Alcohol, Expensive stuff, Pretending he is human,Cash, Deceiving, Gold,Being unnoticed, Gambling, Flesh
Dislikes: Being deceived, non-alcoholic cocktails, vegetables
Personality: Split of personality - one of chaotic monster and another of lustful human - sometimes he says about himself in terms of "we". He thinks he is human with Yoma inside him - doesn't really understand how Yoma works himself.
Sacrament of Masks : Just a little nicer way of a skill which steals someone else face by ripping it of from previous owner and using it as his own - it's hard to tell how long a face can last - a hour or a week.
Shadow Works : Through creating some mysterious presence around him (smell maybe ? He doesn't understand it himself) he can make himself...uninteresting. Human's or Claymore's mind just doesn't record his presence in their memory. The flaw of this technique is, that it stops works if Jacob becomes agitated (in other words, experience 'Adrenaline Rush'), so this technique's is for sneaking and fleeing only
Half Yoma ? : For some reasons he can't display his full yoma powers, but becuase of that he can decide quickly , make faster decisions, which gives him better initiative than other youma and he can suppress his instincts. Although he lost most of his 'yoma' strength in arm and his ability to take damage, he still can jump and move fast as yoma, or maybe even faster...
Thievery : Lock picking, sneaking, pickpocketing, trap removing - stuff like that.
Heartbeat awareness : A skill inferior to that of claymores to detect yoma's power - Jacob can detect heartbeat if he can concentrate. The ability gets better after more training - presently he can detect heartbeats from distance of 100 meters (if there is more than 10 creatures around his sense might get confused).
The problem is, Jacob doesn't remember much of his life - from the very beginning he was Yoma but actually felt a little disgusted with his friends. He never felt motivation to fight with humans - he always said there is too many of them to actually trying to fight them. The interesting thing is he has a split of personality - he tends to talk to himself and conspire by himself. He has human side and yoma side and those both sides... tends to thing the same way.
He was never interested in revealing his own past...
He actually enjoys being with humans but because of his nature ('I need human flesh') he tries not to get too close with them.
He likes to collect things, rare things (probably some complex) and he wants more, more and more...so he takes various jobs to obtain them or get money. Assassinations, burglaries, mugging, raping and.... gambling.
Mostly he wears completely black suit and black robes and a face of human he stole before (sometimes he have few faces with him just in case). Although he has his "Shadow Works" he tries to be extra careful every time he performs his job.
He met with Claymores and very efficiently... avoided any contact. He is quite aware that Black Order is aware of him, but since no one pays money for his head, it might be the reason why he doesn't have 10 silver-haired beauties running with big swords after him.
Doesn't let anyone see his real face - this is his agenda.
Misc: Sometimes he can't control his split-personality - he tries to hide this, but when his yoma side gets irritated (mostly becasue it didn't have any 'action' lately) he becomes aggresive and talks like lunatic (with 'we want it' way of speaking - like Golumm).

Race: Yoma (1/4 human)
Likes: Family, friends, Tanit, hard workers and good people. Likes to goof around and play jokes on people.
Dislikes: Yoma and stressful people. Hates being pushed around, hates not being able to retaliate and her craving for human flesh and blood.
Personality: Easy going, and quite slow paced. Is kind and generally helps everyone who needs it, is determined despite her demeanor and uses her opponents underestimation of her to her advantage. Easy to get along with. Her blood lust when using her Yoki is a problem.
Special Skill: Drain and Aspir.
Drain: Through close contact with the target Yoma, Kaiserin can drain the opponents stamina and uses it to increase her own stamina. Opponents feel tired and their endurance goes down greatly. Drain can also be used in reverse, giving an ally some of Kaiserin's stamina, or by using Kaiserin as a catalyst, transfer stamina from one Claymore to another.
Aspir: Again, close contact with the target.
VS Yoma and Awakened Beings: Kaiserin drains the target of Yoki, lowering their defense, offense, speed and intelligence while raising her own. Using this her power releases according to the amount drained, it's easy to go up to 80% and over just by draining a small amount from Awakened Beings. Must be used with great care against strong opponents.
VS Claymores: If the opponent Claymore is using 10%, 30%, 50% etc of their power, Kaiserin Aspirs that much of their yoki, returning them to 0%. At the same time, that amount of power is instantly added to Kaiserin. Who can't quickly disperse of the power.
History: Kaiserin was originally a full blooded Yoma. Who had close contact with humans. Intrigued by the kindness (or stupidity) of this one couple and their daughter, she began to live with them, learning about human ways and customs. She slowly felt love towards the family, and the love was reciprocated. The days she spent with them were golden. She had always had the craving for human flesh and blood, the couple, understanding of her dilemma helped her to use that hunger and craving for a better purpose. To hunt and kill human criminals, that was the only way Kaiserin could eat and survive without feeling guilty. Eventually this became normality, she even began to enjoy her sessions, favouring the hunt and not the prize. No matter how involved she got, the family was always there to ground her, giving her perspective and not letting her run amok. Kaiserin dearly loved her little sister, Brea, they weren't often seen apart, and it was because of her that Kaiserin managed to feel human.
During one of her hunts ran into an injured handler. She rescued him and took him back to her family and nursed him back to health. The man, grateful made a promise to return the favour at some time. The man called himself Tanit, he bowed to Kaiserin and her family, before walking off.
The city one night, was rampaged by a huge monster. It stood taller than most buildings and had the force to completely destroy them in one swipe. The night was over quickly, however, for those who survived. It was the longest night of their lives. Kaiserin stood above the body of her beloved sister, who laid there, lifeless, looking up at her. Tanit approached her from behind, laid his hand on her shoulder and gave her his condolences. She picked up her lifeless sister and turned around towards Tanit.
"I know how Claymores are made...humans are infused with yoma flesh and blood." she paused, as Tanit stared at her confused "But... I am not human. So, if you were to put this girl's flesh and blood in me...would the result be the same?"
Tanit had a look of bewilderment on him, "You're not human...what do you mean by that?"
Kaiserin slowly released her power, showing her true form, Tanit was taken back, but he was not worried. "I see..." he said looking down at the ground. He raised his head and said "Theoretically...it could be done. But I have no idea how this will end..." he trailed off "I did say I owed you a favour though, we will certainly try, I owe you that much at least. However, this will be a secret. The organisation can't know about this, nor your fellow comrades." Kaisering nodded, and walked slowly behind Tanit, who was leading, with her sister grasped tightly in her hands.
Misc: Although Kaiserin is considered a Claymore, because of her odd body and blood fusion she still has to eat humans to survive. Her parents are still alive and she often visits them. Took on the rank of (number, I said 40) to be in the region her parents live.
Let me know if you think this character is feasible. If not I have a backup one lol
I've edited Deimos' special skill taking Phantom Miria and Elcura's suggestions into account. Which one works?
Ignition of Ankh: the exhalation of a highly oxyginated mixture. Three conditions should be met for this skill to be optimal. First, the enemy must have a tough enough skin that sparks are possible. Second, he must cut his open his palm. (Internal wounds don't meet this condition since the skin isn't broken.) Third, Deimos needs to use all the air in one of his lungs.
Using his yoma energy to channel his breath down his bloodstream, it escapes as an expansive mist from the open wound, an inflammable compound instilled with his yoma energy. This gaseous mixture wreathes his blade for a short period of time before dissipating. A typical move is to stick the blade in and cause an explosion.
Two disadvantages to using this skill is a need to strike at once before the mixture becomes impotent, a need to attack at close range, and the number of times--two--this skill can be used. Aftereffects of using this skill include oxygen deprivation and a temporary loss of motor control.
In other words, Deimos becomes extremely weakened and easy to attack.
EDIT: Omitted the flamethrower.
Skeleton Blade: the temporary fusion of sword and limb. Deimos cuts off one of his hands and jams the sword hilt into the self-inflicted wound. Using his yoma regeneration powers the blade becomes coated with a thin, extremely sharp sheet of bone. This both strengthens the blade and allows him to cut through even the toughest surfaces. (Look up what makes monomolecular wires and why piano strings are bad for throats.) The downside is it takes him a very long period of time to fuse blade and bone because of his offensive alignment, and even after fusion the pain only increases. The extended use of yoma energy to 'glue' the two together will drive him to the brink of the limit.

Claymore RPG Profile: Deimos
Hi all, I have edited my character's profile. Do check it out again. Its on page 3. Thanks.
I have added more stuff into her "likes" and "dislikes"
and modified her Lindy-Dash (from near).
Do let me know what you all think. I have made it abit more powerful as suggested by Elcura.
Oh Elcura your character is an interesting one as its a Youma infused with human instead. Im cool with it but Im not sure how the powers are used. Kaiserin is something like a more powerful version of Galatea who can manipulate Yoki right? Hence, she's able to drastically reduce others Yoki. I can understand this part but I dont understand how she adds their powers to hers. If its mirroring a move I can understand but sucking the power of others is not really feasible in the Claymore world I think

It's not really Galatea, since it requires direct contact, and she can't change the will of anything (bending trajectories etc). It's basically absorbtion through contact. Absorbing stamina and absorbing yoki (with a twist).
Your character is fine though Hyn. As for Saiku Ignition of Ankh sounds a lot better. Good concept. Another way to use it would be to coat the blade in the dense gas and use the sparks to set the blade on fire. I don't see Skeleton blade working for an offensive type, unless he has no right/left and and just creates a flesh wound every time he wants to fuse.
Haha, considerably I am the weakest player from all, but that's ok I think - I will be the crafty one which avoids close combat.
I added myself a skill, not such a great one : Heartbeat awareness
