    Jackson Williams



    Alias: Jumpin' Jack Snipes
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Khajiit
    Age: 20
    Alignment: Chaotic Sneaky
    Class/Profession: Thief/Thug/General Unsavory Fellow
    Power Rating: 3. Not especially good in an upfront fight, but if he is allowed to plan before hand, or gets the element of surprise, don't expect things to end well. Or with an intact jugular.
    He has some small skill in illusions and mysticism magic, and uses this to fool and track his victims.
    Description: A tall, thin Khajiit with a laid back stance. His lower jaw is unusually large and robust for his type, but he enjoys the look. He is a light, tawny golden color, though he darkens to a rusty orange color along his spine and the top of his head. He keeps his tan hair up in a series of short braids held up by a messy brown headband.
    Personality: Sneaky, promiscuous, and most definitely selfish. He knows his limits but he still loves to test them. He refuses to get into a fair fight, and likes to scout ahead so that he has time to set traps and get ready to fill the target's back with arrows. In battle he seems far too happy, and some people have called him a sadist.
    Equipment: A well made composite longbow and a quiver of enchanted arrows.
    A jambiya, a long, curved knife he hopes not to have to use in open combat.
    Black leather armor.
    Lockpicks.
    A variety of small traps.
    Lots of rope.
    Abilities: Low level illusions and mysticism.
    Too good at parkour for his own well being.
    Quite the sneak.
    Is a coward in open combat.
    Flirts way too much.
    Backstory: Grew up in a city based in the mountains, were agility was a must have. Took up thieving as part of a bet. When things went downhill in his hometown and he got caught wooing and stealing from the mayor's daughter, he jumped town and traveled with various bandit groups.
    Miscellaneous: Hates seafood and ogres.

    Full Name: Nicholas Boyle

    Alias: "Slick"

    Gender: Male

    Race: Half human slash half some kind of god

    Age: Pre-teens, early teens?

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, with definite Evil tendencies

    Class/Profession: Bandit, at the moment

    Power Rating: 3 slash C

    Description: Tallish, gangly, but a decent amount of athleticism rounds that out a bit, brown eyes that lack much fire, short and ruffly brown hair, some kind of black body sheath under generic brown leathers, two pairs of gloves, a black bandana that he thinks makes him look pretty cool, and a generally insolent and indolent vibe.

    Personality: Well, insolent and indolent is right. Also, fairly unintelligent and uncreative. Lacks drive to do much beyond getting ordered around by someone who would better know how to utilize him, although he does love the idea of one day becoming an infamous villain. As long as it isn't too hard.

    Equipment: As mentioned, a black body sheath under generic leathers, two pairs of gloves, and a bandana. Also, a longknife, a rope with a grappling hook, and a few little pieces of metal and wire that he was told equates to a thieves' kit but is probably just junk.

    Abilities: No friction. He has to wear double layers and be very aware of his center of gravity, since anything he touches loses its friction for some unspecified amount of time (it wears off at the speed of plot, I figure). He mostly uses it to slide around and be difficult to catch, but he can also use it to make blows a lot more glancing, or as an attack to make people fall down. Since he's a dimwit, there are plenty of applications for this that he hasn't thought of, and I'm wanting his powers to develop into including lots of other things. He just needs to actually practice and such.

    Backstory: Born in a random fantasy setting. Since I am not as familiar with this Nexus place as I'd like to be, he might even be from here, as long as his father could have been some random god who abandoned his mortal mother, as frisky gods ofttimes do. He was raised by this mother, who seemed to be less of an atheist and more of a, "Down with all gods!" type, in a hovel somewhere. She never told him who his father was, so he isn't arrogant about that. He has joined several little gangs, over the years. His mother is happy to have him out of her hair, although he sometimes drops in, hoping for a free meal or a place to stay, sometimes even to steal something. Most recently, he has happened upon and joined the Blackhallow Brigands.

    Miscellaneous: For powers to be developed ---> Super friction, giving him the ability to slow himself down more easily, as well as to just stick people or things in place. Later, the ability to mess with other things from physics class. Decreasing something's mass, to pretend like he has super strength. Stuff like that.

    Dusk Ryder


    Gender: Male.
    Race/Species: Human Vampire.
    Age: 24
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral.
    Class/Profession: Rogue/Thief.
    While he gets all the plusses of being a vampire, they're less visible in him. His strength is augmented, but not my much. His speed, however, is high and he has excellent night vision, as well as the ability to feel living beings approaching, as long as they have a beating heart.
    Power Rating: D Rank
    Description: The first thing that comestomind when seeing this person is "young". He is young and with a fit build, not too tall. His hair is silver, his eyes red, but not bright. Obviously, he has vampire fangs, but he retracts them. Dusk is very good at hiding the fact that he's a vampire.
    Personality: He seems to be friendly most of the time, and since he uses his vampiric seductive abilities coupled with being able to hide that he's a vampire, people will usually find him charismatic. There is, however, one problem with Dusk: He's a Kleptomaniac. Nail your valuables to the ground when the man is around. At times he appears to regret being a vampire, but he takes good advantage of his abilities. He's also made a good fortune... by stealing.
    Equipment: Dusk carries a shortsword, a dagger, and a lockpick. He also carries a bow and arrows. Wears a black hooded cloak.
    Abilities: Excellent Lock-picking abilities, as long as the lock isn't heavily fortified by magic (he can undo small fortifications). He practices magic, when said magic helps in things like sneaking and stealing, opening locks, and slight levitation of objects. His magical ability for offensive, defensive, or restorative purposes is null. He's also fairly proficient with a bow, though not expert enough to shoot from a long distance and hit the target. Unless there's a lot of luck involved.
    Backstory: Dusk was turned into a vampire when he was 20 years old, willingly. Having become engaged with a band of low-class criminals, one of whom was a vampire, he suddenly started to show interest in vampirism. After a while, the Vampire offered to turn him and Dusk accepted. At times he seems to regret it, but the prospect of an eternal life of acquiring wealth is still appealing to him.
    Miscellaneous: Dusk, like any vampire, relies on blood, but he does not require too much of it. He is perfectly capable of biting a person, drinking some blood, then leaving them alone. If done while the person sleeps, they might not even notice him, the sneaky bastard. This makes his tracks easier to cover.

    Faction Entry

    Hell of the Iron Queen
    controlled by players Happyturtle and KidKris
    (See also: Kris's Hell)

    ((Since all cosmologies are true, there are many hells. This is only one of them. You may send your character to this hell, or interact with its devils as you wish, but if you do, then HT or Kris control all of the npcs. If your hell works by different rules, then it is not this hell, and nothing here is applicable. ))

    This Hell, populated by devils and ruled by the Iron Queen Persephone, is in a constant state of warfare against the demons of the Abyss*, ruled by the Storm Queen Lilith. It is structured similar to Dante, with nine circles, each of which is ruled by an Archdevil.

    Circle 1: Lust [Archdevil: Morgana] (played by Kris)
    Circle 2: Pain [Archdevil: Morgana, formerly Semiazas]
    Circle 3: Greed (controlled by Jacklu)
    At first glance, this level of hell could almost be mistaken for heaven. The very ground itself is mad of gold and diamonds and jewels and treasure as far as the eye can see, all leading to a massive fortress crafted from precious metals and gems in the very center. Ten rivers of gold and treasure flow from the outer edges of the circle into the center where they cascade down into a seemingly endless abyss in massive, stunning falls. The fortress is build upon an endless pile of treasure that rises out of the center of the abyss.

    As the hell is for those who gave themselves over to greed in life, those who end up there are immediately swept up in the currents of the rivers and carried toward the fortress in the center, drowning in gold and riches the entire way. After going over the falls, they are eventually picked up by winged demons who carry them the fortress where they are made the personal possessions of the Lord of Greed and forced to live in service of him for all eternity, owning absolutely nothing and spending all time surrounded by splendors that they cannot ever possess. The Lord of Greed treats his possessions however he pleases, forcing them serve him seemingly endless feasts that they cannot touch. He even has them cast inside gold statues and put up around his fortress as decorations

    Though the lower demons that inhabit the realm look similar to most other demons, the higher ranking ones could be described as shockingly beautiful. The higher a demon in the third circle advances in standing, the more beautiful they become, often even shedding their demonic traits and coming to look almost angelic. After all, greed and vanity go hand in hand. In fact, the Lord of Greed's queen is the archdevil of Vanity and many of her siren demons can be found inhabiting the circle as well.

    Circle 4: Anger [Archdevil: ???]
    Circle 5: Cowardice [Archdevil: ???]
    • Outer ring: Cowardly failing family or comrades
    • Middle ring: Cowardly giving in to moral wrongs
    • Inner ring: Cowardly failing one's self

    Circle 6: War [Archdevil: Baalthazaar] (played by HT)
    Circle 7: Pride [Archdevil: Lady Nemesis]
    • Outer Ring: Pride over Life
    • Middle Ring: Pride over Death
    • Inner Ring: Pride over Nature

    Circle 8: Fraud [Archdevil: ???]
    • Bolgias 1-10: As Dante.

    Circle 9: Treachery [Archdevil: The Iron Queen Persephone, formerly Hades(now deceased)] (played by HT)

    The ones in red may or may not be changed if people think of better ideas for circles.

    Significant persons:
    [INDENT]
    • Lady Dekaros of the Sixth Circle, Marchesa of War - daughter of Baalthazar. In her current timeline is 19 years old, with the intention of making Kal, grandson of Morgana, her consort soon, and leading her father's armies. Since there is another Decker from the far future running around the Nexus, this version is known as "Decker the Younger" or "Devil Decker." She is evil and bloodthirsty and hates demons.

    • Issi - devil imp and friend of Decker's (D)

    • General Baalthazar - Decker's father, powerful diabolic general, servant of the Iron Queen (C)

    • Prioress Rosa - Consort to Baalthazar and high priestess of the Iron Queen (D)

    • The Iron Queen - Queen of the devils of Hell (A/S) Arranged to be 'kidnapped' by Hades to get out from under her mother's thumb, then 'accidentally' ate the seeds that cursed her to stay in the Underworld. After a few centuries that she used to set up her power base, Hades died of *cough* "natural causes."

    • Lilith - Storm demoness, archrival to The Iron Queen. Was once defeated by a kiss from Butler (A/S)

    • Morgana, Lady of Pleasure and Pain, Queen of Succubi, Archdevil of the First and Second Circles - Fond of elaborate titles. Servant of the Iron Queen, but less powerful than the other archfiends, and has weaker forces overall. Resides in the Clockwork Fortress, a construction of her own design. (D+) (Player: Kris)

    • Kal'selthezaar - A tiefling. Grandson of Lady Morgana, a spy/assassin/corrupter. Consort to Lady Decker. Immune to magic. (C-) (Player: Kris)

    • Ambrosius aka Face of the Masked Lady - brother of Morgana, great-uncle to Kal the PC (Player: Kris)

    • Lillanthil - daughter of Morgana, mother of Kal the PC (Player: Kris)

    • Jeanne-Antoinette "Jeannie" - great-grandaughter of Morgana > Ambrosius > Zabrigael - devil succubus and eldest daughter of Zabrigael. Named for her father, Jean-Antoine, who did not survive the encounter that resulted in her conception. (Player: HT)

    • Zabrigael - bog standard succubus/incubus - seduce and impregnant/get pregnant by mortals, killing the males. She takes male form as well, but tries to leave the females alive to give birth. She isn't always successful. She has quite a few children by now. The ones she gives birth to herself are in the First Circle, and the ones born to mortal women being raised by mortals with no real connection to Hell. Zabrigael occasionally checks on them, but not in any real attentive way. (npc)

    • Mercutio - A Shakespeare-loving minor devil from Pride over Life. Ascended to Planeswalker status but still carries out his duties in addition to his personal vendettas. Fond of using names from Romeo and Juliet as aliases. (played by Moon_Called / Sphinx of Magosi)

    • General Elshika - An ambitious general under Baalthazaar of the Sixth Circle (player: HT)



    *The Abyss that the Iron Queen's Hell is at war with is controlled by the player Earl of Purple. As before, there may be many different Abysses. This Hell is not at war with all of them, though individual devils (*cough Decker cough* hate all demons equally.

    [Yighotians - Demons Serving Yigoth]

    Yigothians are one of many groups of demons spawned from Cuthun (also called the dreamer, the demon world and the demon world.)

    Leader: Yigoth is said to be one of the more powerful demon lords which might just be rumors as Yigoth hardly makes an appearance at all. Yigoth's powers are unknown, but it's said that the demon lord have taken a break from reality due his inability to purge every world of the 'unpure'.

    Ideology: Yigoth and his servants have one of the more extreme ideologies of the demons. They believe that only beings born from Cuthun are 'pure', all other beings are filthy disgusting creatures that should either be converted or put to death.

    Yigothians often attack non-demons as well as demons supporting non-demons on sight. They do consider non-demons that willingly likes to be converted into demon-hood as worthy to be spared but lately they have begun force demon-hood upon mortals due their recent loses.

    Yigothians especially hates children, mothers, people who show sexual attraction and demons that have 'betrayed' their true calling.

    Organization: After their recent loses within one of the worlds, the Yigothians have retreated back to their core planes which are interconnected by summoning circles. Their drastically decreased numbers makes them unable to put anything more then a skeleton crew in their strongholds. But as these strongholds are interconnected, any force of demons can easily be transported between them.

    Before the fall of the demon world (it fell asleep and was unable to spawn and re-spawn more demons) Yigothians were mostly focused on one mortals they came across, invade world after world to wipe of these 'unpure' beings.

    After the loss of the demon world and their recent loses of most of their forces, Yigothians have become more focused on converting rather then killing, abducting mortals from various different planes of reality to convert into demons.

    Yenna "Rough-hands" Ostgood


    Aliases: The Walking Sister, Ragdoll.

    Gender: Female.

    Race/Species: Halfling. Lightfoot subrace, with a bit of Tallfellow in the bloodline someplace.

    Age: 22 human years, which is just barely adulthood for a halfling.

    Alignment: Somewhere on the Good-Neutral end of the axis. Definitely Lawful, however, if only because of her strict personal disciplines.

    Class/Profession: Street Fighter Monk.

    Power-Rating: C, though I should hope a little scalable.

    Description: Yenna's just under four feet tall. She appears to be made of steel and whipcord, her body rippling with hard-earned muscle. Typically wears rags she fashions from random odds and ends. A ruined pair of child's trousers, and several torn strips of cloth tied around her chest are fairly common. Her hands and feet are rough, callused, well suiting a martial artist.

    Yenna's features are straight and hard, with deep-set brown eyes and a small nose. Her ears are of a vague rectangular shape as they taper out, yet another typical halfling feature. Her dark hair is braided and tied with a single string, sporting a wide pony-tail-esque style.

    Personality: Typically soft-spoken, she's trained herself into a rather atypical disposition for a halfling. She tends to 'look before she leaps', erring on the side of caution and humbleness as life dictates. When called upon to fight, she takes up the duty modestly, but there's a definite satisfaction in her eyes after defeating any opponent. She has no qualms about beating those weaker than herself, and will often do her best to show them up.

    Lives by a series of strict moral, physical and mental codes meant to keep her strong, conditioned, and emotionally collected. Though her family is an upper-middle-class one, Yenna chooses to live in squalor so that she might become stronger. More strict with her indulgent self. In some ways, she is a bit too devoted to her passion, so much that so that she foregoes things like friends and hobbies. At least, that's how she has been. Her parents visiting recently (begging her to come away from the slums, too) has shone some light on these issues. It worries them to see their daughter so... cut off from people, as it's not the halfling way. Yenna's making an effort to change this, for their sake.

    Equipment: A sparing set of clothes.

    Sometimes a bag of food or a staff.

    Seals or blessings from her temple, which have become faded and worn.

    Abilities: Martial arts student of two and a half years. Basically a monk. Possesses an inkling of The Symmetry, an all-encompassing sense of bonding with her surroundings. Basically, heightened senses and a sort of spiritual, almost magical grace when using her art. Also, excellent improvised weapons skill. As in, using broken glass as a throwing weapon. Her aim could do with some improving, however.

    She used to be a good dancer, but hasn't done it in years. Other mundane skills include sowing, various forms of exercise, and meditation.

    Her martial arts teaching allows her to create Seals, powered marks that produce spectacular effects when activated. These seals are often drawn on the ground or her body when she's anticipating a fight.

    |Special Moves|

    Echo Palm - Yenna slams the ground with one of her palms, creating a shockwave that slams foes backwards and deals moderate damage. Dual Skill: Rising Palm allows her to reverse this ability, pulling opponents toward her to set up combos.

    Earthroar - Yenna slams the ground with both fists, sending a wave of force in one direction that shatters the ground. This broken ground bursts after a couple seconds, sending debris and a wave of force in all directions. Usually not used as part of a combo, except to clear room when Yenna needs mobility.

    Twin Hammer - Yenna lunges forward and hits an opponent with both hands, curling her fingers at the last moment. This ability is usually reserved to shatter artificial foes or creatures with strong natural armor. The lunge is almost supernaturally swift, and may land her inside an armed creature's guard such that he can't swing to retaliate.

    Knee-breaker - Yenna aims a kick at one of the tall folk's knees, not necessarily shattering it but attempting to knock them down. This is usually followed up with Earthsnarl or Launch to deal heavy damage. Usually preceded by Earthroar or Twin hammer to set up the move.

    Launch - Yenna flips, landing on her hands, and kicks out with both feet. With strength that her small frame couldn't possibly contain, she attempts to knock an opponent upward. This works on creatures in any size category beneath Large, otherwise, they may simply find themselves staggered. Such opponents are simply too heavy for this move to handle. Usually preceded by Twin Hammer and followed by a more damaging move. Opponents set up by Launch are highly susceptible to combos.

    Crippling Palm - Yenna aims two quick strikes at a foe's nerve endings, attempting to gimp them or incapacitate a specific limb. The strikes are both dealt with one fist, with only a short pull back, so they can be weaved in between other attacks.

    More to come.

    Backstory: I'll make it up as I go. As in, when another PC asks.

    A.R.T.



    Alias: Arty
    Gender: None (Robotic Humanoid); Usually goes by Male nouns, however.
    Race/Species: None (Robotic Humanoid)
    Age: N/A, Machine (But was constructed just over eight months ago)
    Alignment: None, but leans towards Lawful Neutral
    Class/Profession: War robot, built to fight.
    Power Rating: B Rank
    Description: A humanoid robot, with a sleek, sophisticated design, overlaid with crude modifications and add-ons. His face is humanoid, as if emulating the ordinary people around him, but is incapable of expression.
    Personality: While robotic, Arty has achieved sentience, and so may develop opinions, even morales, of his own free will. He is loyal, to a point, though if his loyalties lead him somewhere against his self-imposed ethical code they are dismissed. He wishes to understand the Human point of view, and to find a place to belong. His personality reflects this, as he is very goal-oriented.
    Equipment: None.
    Abilities: Well-armoured and built for combat, Arty is presently equipped with a powerful wrist-mounted plasma weapon as his primary offensive measure. The weapon is fairly slow, however, and useless against large numbers. His left hand contains an acid-spray and liquid-nitrogen tube, but he doesn't use these often, having limited supplies of the two. His body is heavily armoured, designed to resist huge amounts of damage, but he is not very mobile, working best when he can remain stationary in battle.
    Able to hover if need be, he can use the same technology for short-term flight, for emergencies. He is also equipped with a teleportaion matrix for easy transport, able to move between where he is and anywhere he has been or that can be accurately pinpointed to him. He is vulnerable to magical attacks, though only having a synthetic mind and therefore being immune to mental ones. His exposed acid and liquid nitrogen tanks are still heavily armoured, but are bulky and are fairly easy targets. He can, alongside his ordinary vision mode, use thermal vision and can register seismic movement.
    Backstory: Built by Sunny, a sweet-natured, emotionally damaged, agoraphobic, and technologically brilliant machine empath, for the fight against Reinholdt Prime. After he dissapeared, and Sunny began demobilizing her robot forces, giving each it's own mind and removing their weapons to refit them for other purposes, Arty chose to leave, dissapearing after getting his mind seated.
    Retaining his fully functional war-built body, but confused as to his place in the world, Arty set out to find it, modifying himself to better allow him to complete his mission. Whatever that winds up being.

    Grace


    (Click for larger view)

    Aliases: N/A
    Gender: Female
    Species: Demon "Eudai"
    Age: Classified
    Profession: Owner of Mallside, Lawyer
    Power Rating: C

    Description: A well dressed woman with backswept horns, noticeably pink eyes, and three tails. Pink seems to be highlighted throughout her features and clothing, though it manages to look quite at home in her classy attire. Her age is extremely hard to pin down, though most people usually guess she is in her late twenties (at least in terms of how she appears).

    Personality: Grace strives to be professional and polite, though she has some failings in the latter department, often letting her personal (and oft times blunt) opinion bleed through her more official presentation. Overall, however, she appears to be well mannered and thoughtful, though she errs on the side of formal. She is, however, quite prone to being short with those who do not attempt to return her politeness, specifically around the subjects of her employment and nature.

    Equipment: Grace wears a well fitting suit bought and made for her by Celestial Dynamics. It is resistant to tears and punctures (though not enough to serve as decent armor, lamentably), impervious to stains, and will regenerate itself whenever it manages to be damaged, ensuring that it will always look new and fresh.
    In addition, Grace carries around a small silver pen... or is a trident? It's kind of hard to tell, actually, as if existence can't quite keep its nature pinned down. The pen- trident- appears to be a fairly potent magic item. Among other things, it is capable of firing rays of energy, never runs out of ink, can create minor illusions, and also burns with an extraordinarily stubborn fire.

    Abilities: Grace is a fairly skilled combatant, though she has yet to display any talents beyond mundane fighting. She prefers to fight with her trident, but may sharpen her fingers to claws and teeth to fangs as needed, and her three tails are quite strong and prehensile, which she takes advantage of.

    Backstory: Grace is a former Executive Assistant of Celestial Dynamics, a relatively high ranking employee, though insignificant compared to the Arch Executives in charge of running and maintaining the universe. Life was going swell, but even the best employee will trip up somewhere, and in the crowded business of Celestial Dynamics, employee competition is to be expected. Utilizing one of the more arbitrary rules of employee leave, one of Grace's rivals managed to sign her up for a non-negotiable leave, using up all the time Grace had been idly saving away... which added up to a number of years.
    With neither her employers or herself able to retract 'her' request for an extended leave, Grace decided to take a vacation on a more interesting corner of the multiverse, where she at least wouldn't have to worry about assassins attempting to make her leave permanent. She is currently attempting to turn the small investment Celestial Dynamics has in the Nexus become profitable, in the hopes that they'll allow her to take on a more active role, despite her 'on leave' status.
    Grace has come to be a somewhat notable figure in Nexus. She reformed the organization LANTERN, eventually recreating it as Aurora. Though the organization has since faltered, it managed to create Aurora Air (a psychic radio station) and Riftline (a railway within Inside) before it ended. Grace also holds a position as a Council Member of Inside.
    Recent evaluation of Grace's work and situation with Celestial Dynamics has led the company to lay her off, however, leaving her stranded in Nexus.

    Hretka
    Spoiler
    Show
    Gender: Female
    Race: Execuloth, Cthonic caste
    Age: Appears to be in her 20s, but probably is not.
    Alignment: NE
    Description:

    Weapons/Equipment/Items: Her clipboard and pen, which she can summon.

    Abilities: Can summon some objects, including her clipboard and pen. Most summoning is done by pulling the object out of her frock coat, even if it would not fit within it without causing a notable bulge.
    Hretka's ovipositor tail is capable of administering a venom that causes mild hallucinations, nausea, skewed balance, and a general lack of coordination for approximately an hour, though the effects and duration can vary.

    Personality: Hretka is not a cuddly individual by any stretch of even the most elastic imagination UNLESS YOU'RE CERTAIN. She has a rather low regard for the well-being of others (besides whomever she is serving at the time) and is, like most of her kind, petty and pedantic.

    Rilayne of the House Baenurden

    Alias: Crazy Aunt Riley

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Drow // Vampire

    Age: About 500 or so

    Spoiler
    Show
    Strengths
    ~Can turn into a bat, a rat, a wolf, or a cloud of smoke at will.
    ~Has unnatural strength that exceeds that of a normal man.
    ~Can regenerate
    ~Can suck the blood of the living by biting them, and can choose to make her victims vampires or to just suck them dry.
    ~Can hypnotize someone if that person is weak minded enough, but only if she is able to stare them directly in the eye for about 3 seconds.
    Weaknesses
    ~Is allergic to garlic.
    ~Bursts into flames if exposed to the sun.
    ~Bursts into flames when in contact with anything holy. Only if there is a particularly strong belief in it that is close-by, so she's not going to be harmed by the "holy vampire cloak" of "hocus pocus religion on the other side of the world".
    ~Is paralyzed if a piece of wood (stake or not) goes through her heart. It won't kill her, but she won't be able to move, think, or do anything at all until some nice (re; stupid) passerby removes it.
    ~Can't cross running water.
    ~Can't enter a home uninvited.


    Backstory: Rilayne was only a child when a newly turned vampire with poor control abused the hospitality of her parents and tried to omnomnom the little tyke. Of course Ghar showed up at once, murdered the killer, and then spent the next hundred years researching methods to magically age her to adulthood, physically and mentally. It was lucky he was a bit bored at the time and needed a challenge, or he'd probably have just recommending putting the helpless creature out of its misery.

    His work was mostly successful, but Riley remains a bit off-kilter. She never took to hunting for herself, preferring the taste of bottled blood. She has (undefined for now) some natural powers which make her an asset to the family, despite her nuttiness. She's fond of children, and several generations of the family see her as a maternal figure. They all mostly refer to her as Aunt Riley, whether she's related to them or not. She usually keeps some dominated humans around as blood donors and servants, who she treats as beloved pets. She also has two higher ranking and well-trained servants that she would only allow to be eaten in extreme circumstances: Heidi (the blonde, who has especially tasty blood) and Jenny (the brunette, who is good at caring for the other servants).

    Ramiro Gallo

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human, Tenebras Vampire

    Age: 242, ageless (40 HPME*)

    Profession: Leader of Tenebras

    Description: To say Ramiro is a large man would be an understatement. His girth is expansive. Yet, it does not suggest a life of indulgence, but a sense of power. He has pale skin and a clean shaven face and head. His fangs are prominent and his eyes are a deep red. He generally wears a black suit with a blood red handkerchief in the pocket.

    Personality: Ramiro is an ambitious man, but possesses boundless patience. But when he does want something, he'll take it no matter who stands in his way. Ramiro is more often than not perfectly polite and cordial, but disrespect will not be tolerated. He is cold hearted and willing to use unsavory methods to get what he wants.

    Equipment:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Equipped:
    • A ring that grows warm in the presence of magic. It can be directed to detect magic in a particular object.

    Inventory:

    Stash:

    Abilities: He possesses the typical abilities of a vampire found here and favours the Seducer path. In addition, Ramiro is incredibly strong, even for a vampire. He can break bones with little effort and can kill with a single mighty blow.

    Backstory: Ramiro spent his life amassing his fortune and expanding his merchant company. Until recently it was the biggest in Gul-Thadar. The High Council resisted his company by setting up additional tariffs and tolls. Eventually his company was bankrupted. He came with Gabriel to the Nexus in order to escape the constraints of the High Council and reestablish himself.

    Miscellaneous: N/A

    Samantha

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Specter

    Age: 18

    Profession: Cleric of Dalachrech

    Power Rating: E

    Description: Samantha has incredibly pale skin, it almost seems like you should be able to see through her. She has long, black hair and jet black eyes. She looks quite delicate and slender. She wears the rope of her order. A headband with a red flower adorns her head.

    Personality: Samantha is very shy and doesn't like to talk about herself, almost as if she is hiding something. She is quick to conform to others' ideas and opinions, likely because she has no past expirience to base her own opinions on. Of course as of her joining the faith of Dalachrech, she will more often than not take the opinions of the church first. Furthermore she is very strong in her faith.

    Equipment:
    All of Samantha's possessions are incorporeal.
    -Holy book of Dalachrech.
    -Bow enchanted to freeze the target.
    -Everlasting quiver.
    -Orb of brotherhood necklace. Allows her to communicate with anyone else touching an orb.

    Abilities: Her touch will cause a chill in anything living.

    By holding her hand within an object and concentrating Samantha can make the object incorporeal. This change is permanent. In addition to changing the object she gains knowledge from it. The knowledge doesn't immediately get revealed to her. Instead it will be sealed in her mind, like a forgotten memory. Then when she hears of it or learns it, it will be like recalling the memory.

    Backstory: She has no memory of her past.

    Miscellaneous: Cannot touch corporeal objects as well as vice-versa.

    Metta Arelis
    Spoiler
    Show
    Titles: Slayer of Demons, Lord of Hell, Vanquisher of Hope, Enemy of Light, Conqueror of Death, and the owner of a small farm near the forest.
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Theoretical Lich
    Terry, what the Hell are you talking about?: Well, he would be a Lich, albeit, a 'half-lich'. Still owns a humanoid appearance, even though he's 'dead'.
    Age: 413 Human years.
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil.
    Class/Profession: Warlock.
    Power Rating: Rank B.
    Description: Metta is of an average height, about five foot nine, and is fairly thin. Due to him being dead 'in theory', he has an incredibly pale look to his skin, clashing deeply with his eyes, which glow a deep gold. Across his face is a single scar, slicing from his right eye to his left eye, right over his nose. He has thin cheekbones and a slightly pointed nose. He has thinly pointed eyebrows, that appear to be almost sculpted onto his face. In addition, he has some unruly black hair on top of his head, but it's cropped and is cut off around his ears. He usually wears a fairly intricately designed robe, with the sleeves cut off as to not catch his arms in them during combat. He almost always wears a hood over his head, as to not reveal his identity, and covers his face. His eyes and scar are always visible, but one of his eyes is covered by an eyepatch. He wears a pair of well-worn boots as well.
    Personality: Metta doesn't really mind other people, so long as they don't try. Anything. Ever. In addition, he sometimes act remarkably silly for someone so old, making people forget that he survived several wars. And caused several more, and he's incredibly cunning, manipulating people for sheer amusement.
    Equipment: His robe, and a interesting staff he carries on his back. The staff is etched with various spectral insignias, and when he makes a certain series of hand motions, it becomes a scythe. In addition, his eyepatch covers some of his various abilities, memories, and general persona, allowing him to transfer bodies if he 'dies'.
    Abilities: Metta has a general mastery over the arcane, in addition to a set of dangerous abilities involving fire and ice. Besides these skills, he can empower his staff with a variety of elementals, as well as blast his enemies with dark energy. His main weakness is all that is holy.
    Backstory: Metta was once human, but he fell from grace, becoming attached to dark magicks after a close friend died. These magicks eventually stole his humanity entirely, causing him to gain the abilities of a Lich, and raising his friend. But his friend was no longer as they were before, and the only words they said to Metta were two simple ones.

    "Kill me."

    Metta, heartbroken by what he had done, obliged, and swore to never cause such a terrible thing to happen again. He lived through so much of humanity's arrogance, he became cynical, deeply unmoved. And eventually... he snapped, and began to become the one who started the wars, manipulated others. Like a true Warlock, like a true Lord.

    Like a true Lich.

    Equipment: He is the concept of mail. He has none.

    Abilities: Create letters and packages in front of those who need them, or who he chooses to.

    Simon Kelkech

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 28

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

    Class/Profession: Cleric

    Power Rating: 4 (Lv. 7)

    Description: Simon is a pale human with green eyes. He is quite tall and lanky, but not athletic or muscular in build. He has black hair down to his shoulders, which is generally kept very neat. He constantly wears his Barik'egeria robes, which are black with a red hand emblazoned on the front, a pair of gloves of the same design, and a pair of sturdy black boots.

    Personality: Through his training in Barik'egeria, Simon is supremely disciplined and focused, able to think about any problem analytically. He also has a strong sense of justice, following a strict code of right and wrong. However, his training has given him a tendency to be dogmatic about this, and he is often prepared to go to extreme lengths to uphold "right" and "wrong".

    Equipment: He still possesses a set of Barik'egeria robes, which he wears all the time to avoid detection, protecting him from their spells. He also has a pair of their gloves, which have powers of telekinesis. The weapons he carries around are a longsword and two daggers.

    Abilities: Simon is a Level 7 Cleric, and is capable of casting all spells available to a cleric of that level. He is somewhat proficient with wielding two daggers, or a longsword and shield. Aside from this, there is the powers derived from his Barik'egeria clothes - namely, being able to avoid detection by the cult's senior members and being able to fire telekinesis rays from his hands. However, he is clumsy with armor, and rarely wears it.

    Backstory: Simon was formerly an initiate of a religion named Barik'egeria, in the eastern deserts of his homeworld. Their god, Barik, was a god of war and destruction, preaching the message that sinners can only be redeemed through fire and blood, and that their warriors had to follow a strict code. Simon was an eager follower of this, believing himself to be right, until he discovered how the high priests of the order maintained their eternal youth - through the blood sacrifices ever 100 years of young women with special magical power (aka "Lifebringers") whom they were taking from all over the world, supposedly to groom them as members of the religion. Horrified, Simon tried to attack the high priests, but they branded him with a curse that would allow them to find and kill him wherever he was if he ever removed his robe. Simon fled after this - since they had already sacrificed three of the twelve Lifebringers (one for each priest), he is hoping to find the remaining nine.
    The below statement is true.
    The above statement is false.
    Figure that one out.

    Blue and his Boy


    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Asexual and Male

    Race/Species: Glaucei and Human?

    Age: 428 and 18

    Alignment: Neutral (just cares about Boy) and Chaotic Good

    Class/Profession: Giant amphibious monster and his pet human.

    Power Rating: Boy is probably a 2 or a 3, while in terms of brute strength and survivability, Blue is around a 5 or 6. However, Blue has no powers (aside from his method of eating and his nematocysts) or anything and only fights to protect Boy.

    Description: Blue appears to be a humanoid Glaucus Atlanticus. He is a bit bigger than an ogre. His very back fins and tail are prehensile, his middle fins have lengthened and grown wider to become large, clodding feet, and his front fins have lengthened to become large arms that hang from his shoulders like an ape's. He stands hunched over so that his head is only a foot or two above human eye level and his eyes can extend down to that level. It (why did I keep calling it 'he'?) has a broad back that Boy rides on, and carries a large knapsack made from assorted marine mammals that holds the jellyfish it eats. It is deep navy blue, almost black, and has silver stripes and tentacle tips, and little blue swirls all over its body. Eats by unzipping its body and covering the food with its stomach, then pulling it in.

    Boy:
    Stands at five seven, and has light brown hair that has been bleached by the sun. He has a deep tan as if he's been outside all his life, though beneath his tattered brown trousers he's startlingly pale. He wears no shirt, and is covered in tiny scratches and bumps and sting scars from various sea critters, as well as one large half circle of tooth marks on his side. His eyes are brown and tend to shine with 'fun' ideas. He's well muscled, but not unsightly so or buff.

    Personality: Blue: Calm, rested, and generally quiet. Loves to see Boy happy, and will do anything for Boy, as it has taken upon itself the job of protecting and raising Boy.

    Boy: Fun loving, constantly excited, and rather innocent. Acts like a child due to being raised by creatures that live for thousands of years. Loves the outdoors, and water, and chasing things, and climbing, and people, and just about everything else that's interesting. Won't let anyone hurt Blue (not that anyone has tried. Blue's HUGE!).

    Equipment: Boy carries about 30 ft of strong rope and a harpoon.

    Abilities: Boy has no special abilities, but Blue can wrap things up in its stomach and inject poisonous nematocysts on contact. The microscopic beasties cause extreme pain and in some cases, paralysis.

    Backstory: Blue (at the time nameless because its species doesn't name) was swimming around his home one day when he noticed sharks going about a feeding frenzy. Interested, he swam over to find a rapidly sinking vessel with several humans inside. The sharks were feeding on the panicking humans, and Blue grabbed as many as it could and swam to the surface. Unfortunately, the sharks would not give up. They tugged at the humans and one of them bit Boy's side. Boy's lung was punctured, and with no help or land for miles, Blue took the humans to its home where the other Glaucei performed strange surgeries that allowed the humans to breath underwater. Boy was six at the time, and was so frightened that he couldn't speak straight. The Glaucei just called him Boy, and the name stuck. Then, each of the Glaucei in that small coral village took one of the humans as its own, and Blue chose Boy, amused by the child's energy. Since then, the two have been inseparable.

    Raenir K. Artemi III


    Alias: Crazy Rae, Crae
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Half Angel, Half Human
    Age: Body is aged 34 years, mind has been around for 12, and the body has been in existence for less than a year.
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Class/Profession: Denimancer
    Power Rating: A-
    Description: 6'2". Brown hair Chopped off just above his shoulders. Green eyes. Thin, and not very well muscled, his features have come to look more delicate and angular, due to his lack of exercise and fully embracing his angelic nature. Wears black denim jeans, a long, blue denim jacket, and various different colored shirts. Has a pair of large, white angel wings, about a 14' wingspan. He's also sometimes an unassuming duck.
    Personality: Normally quite unpredictable, he acts on instinct and impulse, doing whatever he feels like doing. Generally not mean-spirited. When drunk or sufficiently angry, he begins to be able to think clearly, and acts more like the original Rae, though he is more prone to violence.
    Equipment: Crae normally wears a blue denim jacket which offers the same protection as Mythril chainmail and black denim pants that offer the same protection of steel chanimail. He can make various weapons with denimancy.
    Abilities: Denimancy, channeling his holy energies, and healing quickly, though that last one doesn't always work. Oh, and he can turn into a duck that can lay eggs that hatch into things that start with the letter "B."
    Backstory: Spent eleven years as one-third of Rae's consciousness, until Rae lost control one too many times. Rae decided to get the other two versions of himself out. He cloned himself twice and put the other hims in the bodies, killing one of them. Emily cured Crae of (most) of his suicidal and violent tendencies, and Crae has existed separate of the original since.

    Xifra


    First appearance

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 25

    Profession: Wizard's Apprentice

    Powers:

    Psychic aura: Xifra has an always-on psychic aura that causes her to be almost impossible for normal people to notice her, or remember her if they do. Anyone with a strong will, or any mind protecting ability can be immune if they choose. Also, once someone pays attention to her, it is easier for others to do so.

    Magic: Training as an apprentice. Abilities will grow over time.

    Equipment: Bag of holding, a coin given to her by Jack

    Backstory: Xifra's blood relatives are partially immune to her ability, which allowed her to survive infancy, but they never gave her very much attention. She is the youngest of three children. Her oldest brother Algu has the opposite psychic condition - an always on aura that makes him especially noticeable and beloved. The middle sister, so far unnamed, has no particular abilities.

    Xifra, like everyone else, adored her brother, and did anything for attention, including stealing magic items for him. But occasionally, in a fit of independence, would leave for a while, trying to get by without being used by him, before her loneliness would drive her back. So desperate was she that when Algu whittled a ring out of wood as a gift for their middle sister, she stole it and pretended it had been a gift to her.

    It was in one of her independent times that she ran into Jack Empty, who was able to see her and notice her, and started training as his apprentice.

    Ashna Drake-Nerei

    Species: Human (Homo sapiens sapiens)
    Age: 34
    Gender: Female
    Alignment: Neutral
    Class or Approximation: Paladin
    Description: Tall, serious looking. No shoes. One beaded necklace. One Holy Symbol (A feather and a candle) on a string. One opal necklace. One mithril-sapphire ring, left ring finger.


    Powers: Ashna has slight powers granted by Timir: healing that would make a mortal wound merely very serious or undo a small cut. She would know if someone was lying directly to her.
    More relevantly, there's the fire. Immunity to it, control over it, creating it. Her powers are nullified by the presence of a mime, and she is also vulnerable to water in greater concentrations than light rain.
    The fire burns cold, when she has control of herself or sleeps peacefully, but it wishes freedom to burn, and waits where her feet fall, hoping that it might be free. However much it may like her, freedom would be better.
    Furthermore, the lycanthropy. Transformation is required on the three nights closest to the full moon, and possible on night that are not the three closest to the new moon. As a wolf, does not quite remember who she is, or think clearly, but is rarely overly violent. Vulnerable always to silver and mountain ash trees.

    Story: Ashna and her younger twin sister Luna were born in Keeriville, in Killissinni, in Droma, in one of many far-off fantasy worlds, named both after the characters from local fairy tales. Lived fairly happily for four or five years.
    These being the last days of a Great War, this did not long last, as one side deployed a superweapon and the others, pushed so far, brought out mere nuclear missiles.
    Even in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, though, there is hope. The flame spirit that was in her, previously quiet, saw her through it all. It said 'look here for food', and food was found. It said 'hide here from the ghosts in the fog', and they did not find her. It said, 'kill this intruder', and she did. In a while, some uncounted months or short years, for the seasons were unstable, a tribe of amoebakin took her in, and she stayed there for ten years or so, until the Battle of Cobbler Pass, where after holding off the Etran army's advance into the wasteland for several weeks, the four of them were driven out and fled south, into Tower Country.
    Horrors from the wastelands were not welcome anywhere, but they eventually found work hunting lycanthropes for their old enemies in the northeast. Risen to positions of power, they pushed through a plan to exterminate the remnants of Machi, who had destroyed Droma on the Last Day.
    The world being happily rebuilt, another apocaplot had to come to the NPCworld, and Ashna went forth with other heroes to stop it. The Dark Lord Teel struck them down without much effort, some killed, Ashna merely driven back to Etra with her mind in pieces. Cael sacrificed himself to end the threat, leaving her heart broken too, for he had been a good friend and rival. She spent her days working badly as a smith of dark metals.
    A flock of cockatrice had taken to eating her customers, and she went to hunt them into the woods, and became lost, and wandered upon GLoG.
    She was reminded that yes, once upon a time she had helped and protected people, and would try again. She spoke with robots and dealt mainly with prisoners. One, Raril, bit her and she saw this as a sign, for lycanthropy had never taken her before, in all the previous battles against the shapechangers in the eastern woods and deserts. Much of her time then went to practicing self-control, and baking. Became friends with Brendan and Runner, and became enemies with Magtok for his lies and kidnapping attempts. Other things happened, but they're down in the digest.

    Brianna Corcoran

    Gender: Female
    Race: Human (Scion)
    Age: 26
    Class (or approximation): Scion of Brigid
    Appearance:

    Brianna has freckles, flame-orange hair, light skin, and gray eyes. She's quite pretty, but it's not divine beauty as some Scions have. Overall, while she's young, it's apparent once you look at her that she's both tough and intelligent, and she certainly is both. She generally wears a jacket and jeans while outdoors, and when it's socially appropriate, has a sheathed sword on her back.
    Equipment and Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show
    In mundane areas, Brianna's a medical surgeon, with all that implies- she specialises in trauma surgery, but is starting to branch out into other fields- and she generally keeps a miniature First Aid kit on her person. In addition, she's quite good with a sword, and that's only increasing as she goes.
    As a Scion, Brianna has a number of divine abilities. Firstly, she's tough. She can power through injuries that would leave most on the floor with pain, is resistant to damage in the first place (although not to a massive degree), and can self-heal to a limited extent (although not to the point of regenerating lost body parts). She's also stronger than she appears, and is very, very smart (with eidetic memory to go along).
    Secondly, she has a number of Boons. Her general boons are in the areas of Fire (she is immune to fire, can remove a fire's need for both air and fuel (or create a small flame about equivalent to a candle) and see out of fire she can see or has bolstered using the previous ability) and Health (assess someone's health with a touch, restore or remove fertility (or ensure a healthy or sickly birth if used on a pregnant woman), and finally heal injuries (although only to a limited extent- she can reduce the severity of serious injuries, or heal lesser injuries entirely.)). Finally, as a Scion of the Tuatha de Dannan, she has several Boons of their Pantheon Specific Purview, Enech (Brianna can read someone's general nature, is bound by a Food-Geas prohibiting her from eating swan meat in exchange for more easily regaining divine power, and can call on Fate to lay a minor Geas on someone).

    Ψ - 23
    (Psi - 23)

    Alias: Psi (the Greek letter in her name). Full name: Foreign Interaction Device Ψ, Serial Number 23.
    Gender: Female.
    Race/Species: Cyborg-ish. Appears human.
    Age: Irrelevant. Does not age.
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Class/Profession: Undefined. She is capable of manipulating energy waves and blasts, as well as resisting energy waves and blasts. She is also a skilled hand to hand fighter. Does not use weapons.
    Power Rating: B- Rank.
    Description: Appears to be a young female with waist-long hair. She wears an open helmet with a "No. 23" written on it. Her armor has a plastic/metallic appearance around her torso, boots, greaves and gauntlets, but it leaves her shoulders exposed. It appears to be mostly aesthetic.
    Personality: Null. Her speech patterns are usually assesment of the situation, suggesting course of action, and inquiries. She often makes comments when she can't understand something, but it's not very easy to hold a conversation with her.
    Equipment: Only her clothes and helmet. She uses no weapons.
    Abilities: Psi can create energy waves and energy blasts in the form of plasma or current. On occasions, these energy waves/blasts can take the form of something almost solid.
    Backstory: Not much is known about her mysterious past. What we know: She is part of a series of similar cyborgs. The people who created her are most likely gone, but their superiors aren't. It is unknown how many others like her still exist, but many must have been destroyed by now. For whatever reasons, Psi is no longer following the orders of the people who were in charge of her.
    Miscellaneous: Contrary to what may appear, Psi IS sentient.

    Orich


    Alias: Pronounced O-rick.

    Gender: Not applicable. Voice is more male, due to creator's own personality.

    Race/Species: Psi-Construct

    Age: Only a couple years.

    Alignment: True Neutral. Probably leaning towards lawful, for it does only as it is commanded.

    Class/Profession: Monstrous/magical creature.

    Power Rating: It's big, and tough, but none too bright. Probably counts as a C or B, but with its intelligence, very scalable.

    Description: Probably eight or nine feet tall when standing up straight, walking with a slightly hunched stature. Its lower body is remotely humanoid - a pair of legs as thick as tree trunks, tight brown leather trousers interspersed with uniform patches of metal traveling down to about his calves. Halfway down his lower legs, a pair of huge, brown boots begin, and he tends to stomp around in these pretty much all the time.

    Above his broad belt, Orich's humanoid features rapidly deteriorate. His skin is a chitinous, gleaming, almost metal-like substance. At first glance, his dark-green hulk of a torso doesn't appear to have anything more than a head. But all around his body, sheathed inside tube-like alcoves of the chitin, are four spindly, scything arms. When they extend, the vaguely insectoid arms angle downward and then back up in a single joint, terminating in ridged, scythelike appendages. This scythes can fold apart yet further, into three seperate 'fingers' with which he can manipulate finer objects. Two arms extend from his shoulders/front, while the other two break forth from his shoulders/back. The joints can bend these arms in essentially any direction.

    Atop his mountainous, ridged neck is yet another fine horror. His 'head' is essentially a slanted twisting of some chitinous, tube-like substances. It curls up around the top of what was once a skull, then stops as it uniformly becomes some green, shining scalp. There are no visible features except for his eyes. Between the tubes wrappings, four diagonally-slanted (in one direction) eyes can be seen glowering, glowing a pale silver as they watch the world.

    Several large patches of him have tubes or pumps things that look like mechanical workings.

    Personality: Simplistic. Loyal. Brutish and overprotective of what things he does care about. Gradually developing feelings.

    Equipment: He's wearing those flawless, oversized leather trousers. And those huge dark-brown boots. And that huge belt.

    Nothing else, though.

    Abilities (strengths):

    -Superhuman strength and durability, exceeding that of Yannovick by quite a bit.
    -Scythe-arms have durability similar to steel. They can cut quite well.
    -On each side, two limbs can fold together, and the scythes can fold inward towards the lower arms. When two of his spindly arms are interspersed, they can temporarily solidify and grow heftier, essentially becoming bulky, fingerless fists.
    -Somewhat attuned to psychic energies. Can feed on some psychic power.
    -Slow regeneration.

    Weaknesses:

    -Uninventive and rather dull-witted.
    -Though he can put on the occasional burst of speed, most of his attacks can be seen coming a mile away.
    -Very vulnerable to mind-based attacks. Though if he's not put down quickly in this manner, the brute's likely to home in on whoever did the attacking.
    -Psionic powers can damage him better than magic or physical attack.

    Backstory: Not much to tell. He's been serving as Yannovick Ventrii's bodyguard for the past two years or so, and is very loyal. His creator got the idea from a horror movie he saw one time.

    Fade
    Alias: Shadow Guy
    Gender: Male.
    Race/Species: Shadow
    Age: --
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Class/Profession:
    Power Rating: B Rank.
    Description: Fade is a humanoid person. He is just average in size due to today’s human standards. His skin shows of a perfect color (This came from a magical effect. Normally he had a bright skin color typical for a person who lived in a place without a sun.) His body is treated with many scars, which he got in many fights. He has black hair cut short and spiky, while his face is shaved clean. Looking at him might give the impression of a 20 year old man. The thing people can remind him most are his shiny yellow eyes which appear to gloom if you look directly into them.
    His clothes can be more seen as rags. Several layers of black, grey and shadow grey cover his body. While a cape rounds up the outfit. On his side hangs a sword. Poor made, like a man never learned blacksmith before made it.

    Fade's shadow is a copy of him; the only difference is that he is a shadow so he has no different colored clothes.

    For a pose it would be nice to have fade and his shadow stand either back to back or facing each other weapon drawn as if they are ready for battle.

    Personality: .
    Equipment: Clothes and a sword made of shadow
    Abilities:
    Shadow Copy: Fade 's shadow is able to create copys of other peoples shadows. They include all skills(even learned and born)and minor memories. The copy can only be made if the owner gives Fade the acces. With access to the shadow he copies all there is no exception. If Fade's shadow switch himself to one of the copied shadows he has access to the skills. Fade now is only able to use oine shadow the same moment.
    Current copys: Lewis, Emily, a female Elf mage, a Paladin, a Giant, Zorro Kitsune.

    Shadow Controll: Fade is able to animate the shadow of another person, but this only works on near willless people like zombies. The animated shadow and the real one share there wounds.
    To be a shadow: This ability makes Fade invulnerableto light based attacks. The reason is easy. For his Race the Sun is there mother cause she is rising and falling increases there power. Lightbeams just go trough them without causing anything, also lightbased objects can't interact with Fade.
    Backstory:
    Fade kind is called the shadows. They live in a realm that never so a sun like we know. The only thing spending a little light is a blue sunlike object ion the sky. Most of them live there normal live, but some get greate power. There power gives them the abillity to fuse with the shadows and more. But there power has a price. They need a master someone who controlls the light. Cause of the less source of light in there realm all shadows gained that power need to go to exile and never come back. Fade is one of these cursed shadows. He is now on his research for the bright one he will offer his service.

    Sakura Frescot

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Cherry Blossom Dryad

    Age: 25, ageless

    Profession: Mother of three.

    Description: The most important aspect of her appearance is her "hair". It consists of a mass of full cherry blossom flowers. It's quite wide around her head and is long enough that it almost reaches her waist. She has brown eyes, a smallish nose, and very long pointed ears. Her eyebrows and eyelashes are actual hair and are brown. Her skin is a somewhat dark shade of brown. She's quite a small, and generally slender, though she carries some weight on her hips and she has quite large breasts. She's very short, only about four feet ten inches tall.

    Her clothing is mostly light and airy summer dresses. Often with thin straps or completely strapless. They are generally brightly coloured and somewhat showy. She never wears shoes.

    Picture:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Personality: Sakura is a very friendly and loving person. She has just a small group of friends, but she'd do anything for them. On top of that, she is a devoted mother, and she absolutely loves her children. She's generally very cheerful, and it's hard to keep her spirits down. She sometimes lacks confidence in herself, but on the other hand she puts a great deal of confidence in her friends. She's very trusting, but sometimes it gets her in trouble as she can be naive too. As a dryad, she's very connected with nature, and is happiest when she's outdoors.

    Equipment:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Equipped:
    • Her engagement ring, marking her marriage to Adir. She is never without it.
    • A necklace with a simple flower pendant made of blue stained glass and wire.
    • A single, adamantium earring on her right ear. Connected with a matching earring worn by Adir. These earrings give the two an empathetic bond that allows them to sense each other's presence.
    • A pair of green rimmed prescription glasses for her farsightedness.
    • Baby monitor bracelet.

    Inventory: Purse or baby bag
    • Various baby supplies that she needs to care for her children.
    • Spoiler: Amulet of fertility
      Show
      The amulet is a tiny, ivory idol, pure white in colour. It is shaped like a woman standing with her legs together and her arms clasped to her chest. Set in its very wide hips is a large, blue sapphire.

    Stash:
    • A ring made of two copper wires and a quartz stone. Will transport her three minutes into the future if put on.


    Abilities: She has a few abilities granted by her heritage. She can manipulate plants in many ways. She can speak to plants. She can also enter a tree and emerge from another, even over great distances, as long as she's touched the tree before.

    Backstory: Sakura has lead a sheltered and carefree life, one might say too sheltered. She has always been under the protection of Sarget, and in their world there was little that would dare attack a treant. So Sakura grew up largely naive to the dangers she could face in a place like the Nexus.

    She and Sarget were relatively solitary. What people they did meet were soon left behind as the pair continued on in their wandering. There are two notable exceptions. The first was a human village where she spent the better part of a year. The second was Adir Frescot. They were sort of seeing each other, though not any kind of serious relationship. Sakura was quite taken with him, however. She would see him on and off until he disappeared into the Nexus.

    They came from a savage, ancient world, where the gods of nature and the ancient spirits of the world held sway of mortals. The planet was always half-connected to the Outside region of the Nexus.

    Miscellaneous: Sakura (and Sarget) is most comfortable while close to Sarget. They can be apart for some time, but it's healthier for them both in the long run when they're close to each other.

    Sakura and Sarget have a mental connection while within the dryad-tree range. As long as Adir wears a certain bracelet given to him by Sarget, he and Sakura have the same bond that she has with Sarget.

    Sakura has three children:

    Sarget

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Tree. Identifies as male

    Race/Species: Cherry Blossom Treant

    Age: Old. Over 600.

    Profession: N/A

    Description: Sarget looks very much like a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. Except for, of course, his legs, arms, and face. If he stands still he can be difficult to distinguish from a normal tree.

    Personality: He is often slow and ponderous, but below that is intelligence and wisdom. Sarget has unmatched patience and is never quick to make decisions. The exception to this is if Sakura is in danger or has come to harm. He cares a great deal for her and treats her like a daughter.

    Equipment: N/A

    Abilities: Sarget has thick bark and is very strong.

    Backstory: Sarget has lived a long time, but he is still somewhat young among his people. There are large gaps in his memory. Events that take place over short periods of time have trouble sticking in his memory. Often times he knows things that you wouldn't expect him to. Just as often he has forgotten the source of that knowledge. It is clear that he has met a person or people that are not from his world.

    Sarget lead the same wandering and solitary lifestyle that he and Sakura lead after her birth. He was overjoyed when Sakura came into his life, and he became like a father to her.

    They came from a savage, ancient world, where the gods of nature and the ancient spirits of the world held sway of mortals. The planet was always half-connected to the Outside region of the Nexus.

    Miscellaneous: Sakura and Sarget have a mental connection while within the dryad-tree range.

    Trahald The Tainted

    Alias: I wouldn't be surprised, but not that I know of

    Gender: Male

    Race: Wereworm

    Age: Three hundreds or four hundreds (pretty young for his race), but he'd probably look like a young adult

    Alignment: Neutral Evil

    Class/Profession: Alchemist

    Power Rating: C+, B-? slash 4 or 5?

    Description: In human form, he'd be thin and weak looking, sandy brown and dusty hair, brown skin, black eyes, impressively long nose that he'd always refer to as his snout, small fangs, and a nasally voice. He'd wear brightly colored entertainer's clothes mostly, but he also has a brown cloak that's way too big for his human form but made for hiding his dragon one, which isn't too much bigger than his human one, but he's stronger, has good armour in his sandy brown scales, fiery breath, claws, and a tail

    Personality: Smart, greedy, self-centered, can be very flattering, mostly acts like a harmless little smart aleck, but he loves egging people on just because it's fun, very weaselly, loves non-magical means of getting things done and is always looking to learn, hates relying on magic and will sometimes destroy or just mess with any magical items that he finds, and he has a taste for female virgins, as in, eating them, whenever he can get away with it

    Equipment: Lots of potions and poisons, a bunch of throwing daggers, a sword for sword-swallowing, and a large and colorful wagon with Trahald's Itinerant Apothecary written in large and flowy letters on it, with And Toyshop tacked on at the end in more simple-looking letters, a large horse to pull the thing, a pony tied to the back, and two enchanted minions

    Abilities: He can switch between human and dragony-looking dude forms, fly, breathe fire, and telepathically communicate via eye contact, he can hypnotize with his gaze, but, as usual, it would only work if the victim had pathetic willpower or was already mentally weakened in some way, and he prefers not to use such cheap tricks, anyways.

    Backstory: Born the runt of the litter to a large brood of Wereworms (basically, just what they sound like, also, they're desert-dwellers), he decided to avoid the bullying by leaving to mess with humans. Having lots of fun, he decided that dragons and other overly powerful type things are pretty boring, so he's trying to act as if he's just another human. Of course, he does have his little dragony quirks.

    Miscellaneous: His two minions could easily be characters of their own, but as long as they're under his control, they'll just stay quiet and try to be uninteresting. Thekk is a tall human with balding hair and a fancy-looking sword. Trahald calls him his boss and tells people that he's just not much of a people person. Rimpalome is a three foot tall raven, except that he's also got some arms under his wings to use. Trahald calls him their alarm system, and the guy is usually perched on top of the wagon or the highest place in the area.
    You're either an Outcast, or you're in denial.
    Strength and stupidity in numbers.

    Friend


    Spoiler
    Show
    Alias: The Banished Fae.
    Gender: Looks slightly male, but has no actual gender identity.
    Race/Species: Ex-Fae
    Age: Around the 6000, looks around 23.
    Alignment: Lawful. The Faerie morality is alien to most, but ultimately Friend is more good than evil.
    Class/Profession: Fender, investigator, GLoG-member.
    Power Rating: D+ to C-
    Description: Black haired, fair-skinned and golden eyed, Friend would look handsome if not for a lack of care taken. Sleep and food are still new needs to the former Fae. Often wears green, particularly in the cloak.

    Picture will be made.

    Holdplacer


    Personality: Bitter about that whole Ex-Fae thing, but still unwilling to give up the rules of the Seelie Court. Still showing the usual personality traits of a Seelie:

    Curious, loves stories, vengeful and proud and prone to over-reacting.

    Friend is also very impressionable and hold friends highly. But that may just be the initial reaction from arriving to the mortal lands.

    Equipment: A cloak, a mortuary sword, the clothes worn and a suit of mechanical armour courtesy of Magtok.

    Abilities: Fending (both European, Chinese, Mayan and Dancing styles), herbal knowledge, reading and deciphering languages, being immune to direct magic effects and a number of minor trivia skills picked up over the ages. Few are particularly great, however.

    Divine items are not well-liked by the Faerie. Friend has yet to test if they affect ex-seelie.

    Friend has recently acquired a suit of mechanical armour capable of flight, laser blasts from the hands and looking niftily archaic.

    Backstory: Friend, before getting this name, was a Seelie Faerie. Interacting with the humans they whisked to the Seelie Court, Friend-to-be spend most of the millenia learning of the human cultures and hearing the stories from it. The Fae having strong magical powers in their realm, little was necessary of work or war, making Seelie life peaceful.

    However, in an incident the non-Seelie rarely talks about, Friend broke the rules of the Seelie by killing a guest. Banished from the Seelie Court, Friend now lives in the Nexus as a mortal, cursed with never touching magic again.

    Miscellaneous: Not much here yet.


    Angelus Ministra Quaternarius

    Spoiler
    Show
    Alias: AM4, Mini.
    Gender: Female in aesthetics, but not gendered beyond that.
    Race/Species: Magitech Automaton.
    Age: 4. Looks inhuman, but clearly adult.
    Alignment: Serves any Maestro, Frau or their Messengers. Although cracks have appeared in this Obedience.
    Class/Profession: Servant, tea-maker and occasional fighter.
    Power Rating: B
    Description: Mechanical, the 'hair' is short and black with light 'bangs' in the front. The 'hair' is mostly vents for steam. Eyes are blue as is the power-source in the chest, protected by a breastplate and 'ribs' but otherwise visible. Obviously made in a clockwork and steampower era, as there are no discernible plastics and many gears visible.
    AM4's face is featureless sans the eyes, although it somehow manages to show emotion in the rare cases that it breaks through the Obedience

    This one has picture!
    Spoiler
    Show


    Personality: Obedient by design, AM4 has little choice in anything and will almost always seek orders. Even if it means self-harm.

    Due to damage and concern showed from a few 'Fraus' and 'Maestros', AM4 is showing some rare instances of independence. Gratefulness has been the most prevalent.

    Equipment: Nothing but own body

    Abilities: Excellent tea brewing and balance, the Etheral generator in the chest provides part-magical energy that can be shot from hands and eyes as well as source through AM4 when damaged.

    Some ability to see magical effects otherwise invisible and strange reactions to anti-magic.

    Backstory: A mechanical servant created in a world where most of the world lie under the Empire With the Eternal Sun (formed from what was once the British Empire and several Germanic nations). A rich elite had almost unlimited power over workers and other "commoners". Social change was often met with harsh punishment and automatons, while possibly sentient, where seen as nothing but tools.

    AM4, as most automatons in this world, was powered by an Etheral Crystal core and still is. Secret scientific research on these lead to AM4's host family, a mostly good family restrained in their efforts to change things by the system, being hunted. Fleeing, the last living members of the family gave those they could, be they automatons, workers or others, what information they could before sending them off.

    Hunted by the Royal Guard, part-machine police of the Royal line of the Empire, AM4 fled to the deep Etheral mines when.

    Miscellaneous: 'pif!' doesn't get enough love, that makes it sad.

    Applied Necromancy

    AN is the front business for Frank's operation. Primarily based out of a run-down warehouse in the Red Zone, outwardly decrepit, but heavily warded. The operation isn't huge, at the moment: Frank himself is the most powerful member (and won't have a profile until I'm good and ready, so there), and he's created several rather powerful lieutenants, summoning vastly powerful alien intelligences, binding them via labrynthian and mind-bending contracts, and sticking them into the most fit hosts he could find. Most of his mooks, however, are controlled by more modest, easy to control daemons.

    Frank's a human in his mid-20s, rather overweight, and completely, utterly, evil. A full profile will appear eventually.


    Lotus
    Spoiler
    Show
    Lotus is Frank's most complicated creation: her physical form in her previous life is one thing, but since she now operates under a Class 4 Glamour, she can shift her appearance at will, usually prefering that of a stunning human woman. She's Frank's only truly undead creation; in order to allow the daemon controlling her the most possible power, all other life had to be wiped away. Therefore, everything she does is with an alien, unearthly grace, and she's much closer to "sqaumous" than "mundane" when it comes right down to it.


    Further lieutenants will appear when I think of them.

    It takes a shockingly short amount of time to set up a binding grid in an alley, drag a couple of innocents into it, rattle off the incantations, and have a new squad of unquestioningly loyal, daemon-possessed minions. Most of Frank's minions are normal humans leading normal lives; however, at any given time, twenty or so are on guard at the warehouse, and another thirty are off running Frank's errands throughout the city.
