Short Description: Lord of the Demon Cities, Judge of Retributions, and one seventh Council

Dislikes: Humidity, sleep, the physical and mental need for ANYTHING, being abducted by aliens, people who've "GOTTA HAVE A SMOKE!", certain words, losing his mind, Satan's attitude, getting shot in the head, drawing Happy Noodle Boy.
A pair of daggers with rounded balls on the ends of them and the angry face of Happy Noodle Boy etched onto them. One of them is simple, with a plain ordinary blade, the other is a black-bladed nightmare complete with a blood-groove and a jagged edge. Only their basic design implies them to be part of a set. If held the black bladed 'Dread Dagger' fills one with an ice cold flood of every negative emotion imaginable. If stabbed with it it sends the opposite - a burning drain that seems to make your soul seem more and more hollow with each passing second...
Being a waste lock, or more specifically the flusher for a waste lock, Johnny is also constantly tormented with the negative emotions cast off by humanity into the ether around them. He naturally pulls this invisible sludge towards him and unconsciously stock piles it. With the aid of the demon Benedict Johnny learned to abuse this negativity and use it himself like the ki seen in various anime. He can use it to turn his body black and protect himself like a full body suit. He can turn it physical and create temporary weapons out of them. There was even a time where he could use it to change the way he was perceived by altering the light around him. Did we mention levitation yet? Magic is also a waste on him. Healing spells cause him physical pain and part of anything thrown at him just gets pulled into his waste lock.
During Benedict's training Johnny was also given the Dread Daggers. A pair of specially crafted weapons which are not only sharp enough to cut the very fabric between parallel worlds, but also act as siphons which focus and concentrate the negative energies already being absorbed by the maniac to boost his powers and decrease the time needed to recharge them. These daggers also allow him to create constructs which can move independent of his body and can be used to enter the world of shadows to make traveling faster.
Even with all these abilities; Johnny has been around a long, long time. His spirit was bound to the world of Chronos for billions of years and his mind was expectantly affected. Especially after returning to the multiverse again and discovering that only a couple of years had passed for everyone he had previously known. This doesn't mean Johnny is immortal - he was dead at that time. Since leaving his imprisonment his life span was restarted, and act which his wastelock tends to reboot reality with. Even brought back to life his mind is still in poor shape and he has a tendency to remember events incorrectly or forget them all together. Randomly this even includes what abilities he does and does not have...
Currently NNY is more of a shade than a human, existing somewhere between life and death. He holds a seat in Hell as the Judge of Retributions and can freely pass between the world of the living and the dead at his discretion. However, he can still die - not that anyone has really tried to test this fact.
Not much is known about Johnny's history. All we do know is that his parents were killed by an evil man, thus setting the course for NNY's life as a masked crime fighter. Or, perhaps not. At present, NNY is more his own enemy than any external mind could be, what with the decomposure of what may have been, at one time, a fine, intelligent mind. Johnny is, possibly, more hideously mentally malformed than the people he seems to think have ruined his world. He's not a loser, he's simply lost.
I HAD A PRETTY GOOD DAY TODAY. yay! I LET GO OF SOME OLD DEMONS THAT WERE HAUNTING ME. asshat dick-bags. I HAD A REALLY GOOD CUP OF COFFEE. mmmmmm coffee. coffee coffee coffee coffeeeeeeee. I DECIDED 'FUCK IT, I'M STARTING OVER.' back again over and over starting anew and going forwards! SO HERE WE ARE. NEW DAY, NEW DIE-ARY. MAYBE THINGS WILL BE BETTER THIS TIME AROUND.
I SUPPOSE I SHOULD START THIS WITH A RECORD OF THE FESTERING PILES OF SHIT THAT HAVE COME BEFORE THIS GLORIOUS DAY OF REVELATIONS. LET'S START WITH THAT COCK-SUCKING BASTARD WHO CALLS HIMSELF JHONEN AND HIS BOOK OF LIES!!!
Johnny started his life from the pages of the Johnny the Homicidal Maniac comic books by Jhonen Vasquez. In the series he's allowed himself to fall into the life of an almost mechanical madman under the control of his own inner voices, or so you're led to believe. Johnny discovers over the course of the series that two of the major voices in his head, a pair of painted Styrofoam Doughboys, are actually being controlled by an outside force. He also discovers his duty as a flusher to a Waste Lock - a metaphysical storage unit for the byproduct of human emotional waste. His mind, deluded and controlled by this negatively charged sludge, is forced to a breaking point wherein the Waste Lock is opened and the contained raw emotions are freed in a seething mass of teeth and tentacles only to be purged along with existence itself and restored from a backup copy. During this reboot time he gets to visit Heaven and Hell, only to learn that he's not wanted anywhere, and returns to life only to find himself disgusted with how his life had fallen apart and preparing to leave.
THE NERVE OF HIM TAKING CREDIT FOR MY LIFE!! I LIVE MY LIFE! ME!!! ...wait, where was I? OH RIGHT. RUNNING AWAY...
Where the pages ended, his story begins. Johnny found himself taking the money from the rotting corpses of his victims and booking a plane ticket at random just to get away and try to start over again. His destination is altered by an unseen force as he finds himself arriving at an airport in Neo Tokyo, a fractured city existing across multiple realities. There he tried to fall back onto old habits only to be stopped by a fighter named Terry Bogard who offered to show him a new way to live if he could refrain from killing people. For the next two years he indeed found a new life for himself and lived in relative peace, aside from the occasional attempts by his inner voices to lead him astray once more.
I MADE MY WAY TO THE AIRPORT DETERMINED TO GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM THESE GOD FORSAKEN BASTARDS AND FOUND MYSELF IN THIS SHORT-LIVED HELL HOLE CALLED NEO TOKYO. I SUPPOSE ON THE BRIGHTER SIDE OF THINGS I MET TERRY SO IT WASN'T ALL BAD...
A disaster brought his new found home to a violent end, causing many of the city's citizens to wash up on the shores of a similar world in the wastelands of a city called Metropolis. There he met the daughter of his friend Terry for the first time, a mercenary for hire named Samantha Li-Bogard. With Terry still missing he decided to honor his friend's memory by watching over Samantha and protecting her until they could be reunited - a task which quickly proved to be a greater challenge than he'd ever imagined.
BUT METROPOLIS... FUCKING COWLICKING SHITSTAIN OF A CITY. oh god, delicious burritos! I TRIED TO DESTROY IT ONCE AND LED AN ARMY OF DEMONS INTO A BATTLE THAT COST ME ONE OF MY LIVES. AT LEAST I THINK IT DID. THERE'S A GOOD CHUNK THERE THAT KINDA BLURS TOGETHER. bluring the line blurring the line blurrrrrrring the liiiiiine. SAMANTHA BROUGHT IT TO AN END - FUCKING USED AGAIN. GODDAMMIT I'M SICK OF BEING FUCKING USED!!
Samantha's unique physiology combined with Johnny's slowly developing abilities created by abusing his Waste Lock led to the two of them getting the attention of Cassandra and Benedict, a pair of warring deities in need of hosts. Samantha was first chosen by the Goddess Cassandra as a pseudo vessel of good, leaving Johnny being taken in by the Demon Benedict who gave the maniac a pair of specially crafted black-bladed daggers known as the Daggers of Dread and the knowledge of how to use them to magnify his new Waste Lock-based abilities.
In the lengthy battle that followed, Samantha was killed and used as a new host for Benedict only to leave a broken Johnny C. to believe she was the real Sammy and be forced to take her life. With the involvement of the Goddess Diaduin Emepherea, Johnny was taken to a new world where he was told Samantha would be brought back to life leaving the maniac dedicating himself to waiting for her return.
NOT ONLY USED BUT KICKED OUT useless THROWN OUT! TOLD TO FUCKING GET THE HELL OFF MY PORCH? SO I KILLED SOME PEOPLE. SO I TRIED TO DESTROY THE CITY. NOT MY FUCKING FAULT. THERE WERE WORSE THINGS! BUT NOOOOOO. FUCK ME UP THE ASS AND MAKE ME THE FUCKING CUNT-SACK FOR YOUR HIGH AND MIGHTY ASS-RAPING DILDO OF INSECURITY!! OH SURE, SAAAMAAAANTHAAA WAS GONNA FOLLOW US TO A NEW AND SHIIIIINY WORLD. LOT OF FUCKING GOOD THAT DID.
What Johnny had failed to understand was the fact that he was technically dead. His body was left behind after the fight with Benedict and Cassandra - ironically destroyed by Samantha's actions. With Emepherea's influence, he and Emi brought life to the world they had found themselves on and had sat to watch it grow - for centuries. The world became known by it's people as the planet Chronos, aptly named as it would become host to a planet-eating beast, labeled LaVos by the citizens of that world, which could disrupt the flow of time with its presence causing gateways to appear across the planet's lifespan.
With Johnny and Emi's guidance from the shadows, the threat of LaVos was defeated by a band of adventurers who had learned to take control of the gateways to travel time. However, with time fractured by the beast, alternate timelines began to converge and wash the planet in chaos. Frustrated with both the state of the world and Samantha's continued absence, Johnny used the Dread Daggers to cut a rift into the border between Chronos and the rest of the multiverse and escape...
I SPENT THE NEXT FEW....billion...YEARS IN A CAVE. MADE SOME AWESOME STATUES. REMEMBERED HOW TO PAINT. THOSE WHERE GOOD TIMES, PEACEFUL. like a pretty summer breeze. GODDAMMIT I WAS SO FUCKING BOOOOOOORED!!!!!!!
The new world Johnny found himself in was that of Twisted, a multiverse hub where all planes of existence seemed to intersect. Making this his new home, the maniac began to see more and more of his past acquaintances and even his old house make their way onto Twisted with him. At this point though, his need to protect Samantha had become an obsession he couldn't shake off. No longer entirely convinced if she was real or not, Johnny began to react violently to their mutual friends and even at one point abused Samantha's former lover Sun Amnariss by creating a 'shadow clone' in the catgirl's image to control her.
Under the unwanted actions of Caliga Satanas Johnny was brought back to life, having his memories temporarily erased to a point prior to arriving at Neo Tokyo in the process. He couldn't even remember Samantha even when she found herself in the process of being brought back to life only to once again seemingly be killed at his hands. The shock of which brought him out of his amnesia and sent him on a violent rampage pausing only to throw the clone of Samantha, now calling herself Tabitha, off of Twisted and sealing her away into a pocket world to keep himself from killing her as well. Tabitha's parting realization was that Johnny wasn't acting out of friendship anymore, he was acting out of love.
By the time Samantha and Johnny crossed paths again, Johnny had been given a seat on Señior Diablo's Hell Council. His new duty was to decide the punishment of the damned souls passing through the demon city of Dis, and it was a job he did enthusiastically. Indeed the maniac's warped mental state made him the perfect judge of the damned, giving him a reputation that made him feared even by some of the citizens of Hell itself. With his friend at his side again and things going so well for him, it was only a matter of time before it all came crashing down once more.
In trying to make amends for his past actions, Johnny took Samantha to see Tabitha and to free the girl from the world he'd banished her to. However the very moment the trio stepped foot on Twisted again, Tabitha plunged the second of the twin Dread Daggers into Samantha's heart - ending her life once and for all. Unable to take action against the living image of his friend, Johnny ran away retreating with her corpse back into Hell to hide from the horrors he had caused.
AND THEN SOME OTHER SHIT HAPPENED. lazy lazy lazy lazy lazy LOOK, I DON'T WANT TO GET INTO IT. I GOT A JOB, HAD TO SEE SOME SHIT I DIDN'T WANT TO, AND IN THE END I TOOK THE COWARDS ROUTE AND RAN AWAY... IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE I TRIED TO RUN AWAY FROM THAT TOO.
Johnny had Samantha's body entombed in stone before the seat of his thrown in the Dis courtyard so he could watch over it forever, but the guilt became all-consuming. In a final desperate bid to run away, the broken maniac used his remaining dagger to create a new world in which to loose himself eternally. Yet, the multiverse being the way it is saw to it that instead he created another version of Twisted itself - which forced the two versions of the worlds to merge and thus allow a new series of events to dictate the flow of time. In doing so he did finally get his wish as the only thing left behind is a shadow of his former self, still sitting in the courtyard of Dis and handing out punishments.
Tired of his antics, the Hell Priest (possibly just to stir up Diablo's plans) forced Johnny to finally confront the death of his friend in the most nightmarish way possible - by fusing her corpse into his body. To repair the damage Johnny was forced to take a voyage to meet the so-called 'God' of Twisted. Since then he's been in better moods and has finally allowed the memory of Samantha to rest. Given his track record, however, it won't be long before something worse comes around.
BUT IT'S OKAY. I'M BETTER NOW. I FEEL LIKE SOMETHING IN MY BRAIN HAS BEEN FIXED. I'M STARTING OVER AGAIN AND THIS TIME.... THIS TIME IT'LL BE DIFFERENT! YOU'LL SEE!
...i wonder if diablo can bleed...?
Both while living on Metropolis and briefly on Chronos, Johnny ran a MySpace page where he interacted with anyone that sent him mail. The page can be viewed here, and the emails are posted to his blog. He accomplished this by breaking into the RTS Video store in Metropolis and using their computer at night.
