    Boris Krestyanov

    "Sir, you have something on your face." *bang* "Got it for you."


    Alias: "Hawkeye," "Sniper Operative #37"
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human.
    Age: 26
    Class/Profession: Spetsnaz Operative (Sniper)

    Description: Boris stands at 6'2'', and weighs 243 lb., which results in a quite muscular build. He has black hair, and storm gray eyes. With a rather angular and symmetrical face, some have called him handsome in the past. Not anymore, though, as there is a nasty scar across his left cheek, going straight from his lips, to just short of his ear. There are two other scars on his body: one on his right shoulder, and another on his left hip. Altough nobody has seen it, there is also a brand across his whole back - a hammer and sickle, evidence of his status as a Spetsnaz operative.

    Normally, Boris wears clothing that shows his rather casual style. He値l wear a red, long-sleeved shirt, with a black overcoat worn over it. In addition, he usually wears black denim jeans and brown leather combat boots. When he can, Boris will have his machete slung on his right hip, and his rifle slung across his back. When he anticipates combat, he値l either be in his Ghillie suit, which makes him look more like a walking bush than a Russian, or his Spetsnaz uniform, which makes him look a little more intimidating.

    Art by Mazeburn. Thanks!


    Personality: In a casual situation, Boris is often very friendly. He値l crack more than a few jokes, and generally do his best to make others feel welcome. He isn稚 angered very easily, but when he is, his Russian ancestry will shine through, with him grabbing his machete and threatening whoever caused his anger. But most of the time, he値l be a calm, loyal, and good-natured man.

    In combat, though, you値l find a completely different person. His mind is almost always completely dedicated to any combat he might be in. He値l talk tactics, and make sure that whatever objective he has is successful. He is much more serious than his normal, happy, joking side. In fact, the person one will find is Sniper Operative #37, of Spetsnaz GRU.

    One thing that is common between both Boris and the Operative is his devotion to Communist methods. Luckily for him (and those he might meet,) his form of Communism is the idealist form. He always has his comrades in mind. Not a single decision he makes is solely because of his motivation. If needed, he'd starve himself so that someone else may eat well. If needed, he'd take a bullet for a friend.

    As a friendly and generally helpful man, Boris will speak in Dark Green.

    Equipment:
    -A marble that becomes a dimensional portal when tossed on the ground.
    -A lever-action rifle made for him by Cornelia Walsh.
    -An old, scoped Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle.
    -A black-bladed machete.
    -Ghillie suit.
    -Rucksack with extra ammo, cleaning kit, facepaints, a few other miscellaneous materials, and a change of clothes (either his civilian disguise, or his ghillie suit.)

    Since his first visit to his homeworld, Boris now has many more weapons. This is a complete list (deep breath:)

    Spoiler
    Show
    Ballistic Knife, w/ nine extra blades.
    Entrenchment shovel.
    VSS Vintorez.
    AS Val.
    Saiga-12.
    AK-107.
    RPK-74.
    SVD.
    SV-98.
    Skorpion.
    Two Makarov Pistols.
    (He always carries his ballistic knife and all of his blades. Commonly, he has his Vintorez, his AK-107, his pistols, and his Skorpion.)


    Abilities: Boris has absolutely no magical abilities. However, to make up for this, he has some of the best training in his world. He can use just about any firearm at an expert level, able to hit within a tenth of an inch of his target at 500 yards. He is also much stronger than he appears (to the point where he can snap someone's neck without thinking about it,) and well-trained with melee weapons and hand-to-hand combat.

    As expected from Boris, if he came across any Spetsnaz weapons (the ballistic knife, the hand shovel, and so on,) he'd be able to use them with quite the proficiency. And because of his training, he's become highly resistant to pain, poison, and mental control.

    As another result of Spetsnaz training, Boris can fill many more combat roles than sniper (though that is by far his best.) He has some basic medical training - enough to stabilize a gunshot wound with the right equipment training. He also knows his way around both explosives and electronic equipment. And with his marksmanship, he can perform any direct combat role quite well.

    Prometheus

    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Genetically Modified Perfected Human
    Age: He's physically and mentally around twenty eight years old, but he's been alive for less then a year.
    Alignment: Neutral SCIENCE!
    Class/Profession: Scientist
    Power Rating: B to A-

    Description:

    Personality: Well, Prometheus finally got around to developing a personality, if you can call it that. Between being a massive control freak, an ever growing superiority complex and what is apparently genetic paranoia inherited from Riv, he ain't exactly the most pleasant person to be around.

    Gear:

    Abilities: Prometheus was born with innate knowledge of over twenty different styles of combat, armed and unarmed. Augmenting this inborn skill is his possession of Object 254, which grants near-perfect mastery of every martial art and every weapon he knows of, making him a formidable opponent in melee, to say the least.

    His strength has only increased with time and training, starting at Olympian levels and rising from there, to the point where he can match nearly any in a test of raw might. Outright supernatural beings may still have an edge on him though, at least those graced with unearthly strength.

    Finally, his genetic engineering allows him to withstand truly insane amounts of punishment as long as his heart, spine and brain remain intact, his upgrades complete with reinforced bones, reduced ability to feel pain, significantly heightened senses, night-vision and a set of metal claws that can cut through nearly anything with ease.

    Bellan Vraal

    ...Those great men from the dead place, terrible bloody-red giants, with their voices like thunder and eyes like stars...

    Aliases: The Sundered Hand.

    Gender: Male, if one can tell by his voice.

    Race/Species: Clan Vraal, once part of a mighty starfaring race, the end result of unnatural evolution and adaptation. Their flight from Vraal-home and consequent delves into space and alternate dimensions has slowly warped their forms and minds. Vraal is the name they use, but their true name is simply unpronouncable in the Common tongue.

    Age: Pretty young, at least for his people.

    Alignment: Lawful Good, not entirely by choice.

    Class/Profession: Knight Repentant, a shamed warrior possessed of great power. Think fighter or minor battle-mage.

    Power Rating: B. Not very scaleable. He is adept at crushing lesser beings.

    Description: Realizing that his appearance tends to disgust, frighten or at least distract creatures of this Material plane, Bellan typical ensures that his body remains covered.

    He's about ten feet in height, and maybe five feet from shoulder to shoulder. Poking out from the top of his cloak is a spiked orange head, arching back and laced across the 'scalp' with a series of organic tubes. These tubes travel from the back of his skull and down beneath his cloak. He has two large, close-set green eyes, the sclera an odd shade of yellow, with black pupils. He likes the colors, and he wanted a visual receptor that could take in light in the same manner as a human.

    Bellan's face has a broad range of expression, with the mandibles that make up his mouth moving to imitate human facial musculature. It's only when he wishes to eat that his mouthparts spread, extending vicious serrated teeth along their lengths and a tubular tongue, along with two tiny pincers to grasp struggling meals. Ridges and curved grooves color his face, adding to the exotic appearance.

    His right hand appears to be three-fingered, soft and almost clawlike but for the blunt tips. His left hand appears to be missing, leaving a cracked green stump where it used to be. His skin his smooth and corrugated in spots, etched with beautiful patterns or strange inscriptions.

    Bellan makes quite a bit of noise while he moves about, and doesn't move quick very often. Likes to take his time. Conversely, he cannot speak loudly at all, as it constitutes some sort've pride he's not allowed to possess.

    Personality: He is both fascinated and appalled by a great many things on the Material Plane. He loves to explore, to learn and discover, but he liked doing it more on his home plane. He hates the death and darkness that plagues this place, causing him to come off as a cynic or pessimist at times.

    Traits:

    Pacifist: Will only kill or injure another living thing out of absolute necessity, and even then with great hesitation.

    Short-tempered: Self-explanatory. This, in tandem with the Pacifist trait, leads to a lot of pent up frustration.

    Moral Code: Though he's had his vices in the past, Bellan is perhaps the most moral individual you will ever meet. He is kind, compassionate, and selfless to the point of lunacy, which might mean he's not really any of those things deep down. Still, he has bound himself to the Wheel's will, a sort of Vraal code. The code is as follows:

    • Death without reason is the folly of the gods, and it shall not be permitted.

      Reason without morality is the folly of mortals, and it shall not be permitted.

      Morality without reason is the folly of good men, and it must be eliminated.

      Seek happiness in all things.

      Love all equally.

      Understand and defend all life.
    The list goes on.

    Abstaining: For the moment, Bellan takes little joy for himself. He does not permit much personal happiness, and his elders would frown upon any significant amount of self-indulgence. Of course, this isn't too big a problem - Bellan's not the most happy fellow.

    Equipment:

    -One flawlessly straight longsword, with a blade of dark metal and an organic hilt. Would be an oversized greatsword for most regular humanoids.

    -A notebook carved out of some sort of purple-blue plant matter.

    -A bunch of odd things he's eaten. Healing salves, bandages, other magical medical gear.

    -A skintaker. It's essentially a small shapeshifting device that crams his massive form into another fully functional body. He often transforms into a pre-human to better blend in. That's a trick he learned from Zee, the former bartender at Trogs. This device also changes the size of his weapons and equipment, which is dreadfully convenient at times. Unfortunately, it also limits his strength and combat abilities to those of his current form.

    -An eye amulet (actual eye) that provides the following advantages:

    The amulet will take on different properties once Bellan exits the hospital. His connection with the world beyond (the spirit world) might be enhanced in some way that I cannot describe in addition to elevating his ability to slice through (or, now, possibly even craft) seemingly flawless illusions.

    The amulet might only function for Bellan. It regards him as its rightful master and has chosen him to wield it.
    -Very little else. Maybe a personal item or two.

    Abilities: Strong. Fast. Tough as a truck. Absorbs his equipment into his body effortlessly. Can absorb other materials and use them in other ways. For example, absorbing stone and reconstituting it as an exoskeleton. Can talk loud enough to hurt ears. He has some weaknesses too, but I'll figger em' out later.

    Has the ability to access a mystical Well, part of his worship for the Great Wheel. He dips his subconscious mind into the Well and can produce a variety of effects, generally some variety of healing. Healing people, buildings, minds... a great many miracles can be achieved through the power of his people's Faith. There is a limit to this power, though, and when he draws from it, he draws power from other Knights Ascendant, those who have surpassed him in their recovery from the blackest of sins.

    Backstory: To be fleshed out in game.

    of rotting meat and eldritch grace
    and looked upon his primordial face
    and from my thoughts could not erase
    that sense of time that sense of space
    and my heart the darkness did embrace.

    Skeppio 'Cybermage' Rexen

    Alias: Skeppio
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human (Cybernetically Augmented)
    Age: 21
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Affiliation: GLoG
    Class/Profession: Tech Mage (Sorceror with wide knowledge of machines)
    Power Rating: C / 4
    Description: Skeppio is a slightly tan human, with bright blue eyes, head-length unkempt brown hair and a light, lean build. Standing at 5' 7" (around 170cm), he does not impose a threatening presence. The most distinguishing feature of Skeppio is his mechanical arm, attached to his right shoulder by a large metal socket, riveted into place. The steel grey arm replaces his entire right arm, which he lost in a machine accident. Skeppio dresses well, typically wearing a blue tunic with gold trim atop a deep blue robe, along with navy blue shoes. He also wears a bronze cirlet on his head. All of his accessories feature gear motifs.
    Personality: Skeppio is optimistic and friendly. He is eager to assist others and generally make friends. Skeppio loves machines, and can build a variety of gadgets from little components. He tends to travel lightly, and favours light weapons. Lacking in physical strength, he prefers to deal with threats with his offensive magic, leaving the physical combat to his robotic guardians should he have any. Skeppio prefers order over chaos and has some trouble understanding truly chaotic people.
    Equipment: A steel mechanical arm (plus shoulder socket), a blue-tunic with Skeppio's symbol, a deep blue robe, navy-coloured leather boots (with blue laces), a laser pistol, a bronze circlet adorned with small cogs, and some money. Skeppio also carries a very interesting item, a wallet that contains as much money as he needs but not as much as he wants.
    Abilities: Skeppio has a variety of offensive and defensive spells from his development of his sorcerous talents. He prefers to use electrical or ice related spells, and loves small trick spells. His magic is used to offset his poor combat ability. In an emergency, Skeppio's arm can be overloaded, and used as a ranged explosive, although Skeppio very rarely chooses to do so.
    Backstory: Skeppio is a sorceror and fancier of technology who lived on a distant world, a small planet blanketed in ice and snow, named Ribo. Ribo also happened to be the resting place of countless stores of lost technology, which Skeppio researched diligently. Through an experiment gone awry involving teleporters and energy cells, Skeppio was sucked into an interdimensional portal, leaving him stranded in another world without any of his machines. He emerged in a quiet alleyway right near Trog's Tavern.

    Torg

    Alias: None
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Troll
    Age: 21
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Class/Profession: Clan warrior
    Power Rating: C+
    Description: well muscled, even for a troll, Torg is a warrior through and through. he has the signature troll ponch, but that just adds weight to him. He has shaggy black hair and wears armor around his shoulders, waist, and ankles, making it double as a loincloth. He also has a massive club on hand most of the time, though he doesn't always need it because of his deadly claws and teeth

    Oh yeah, and He smells pretty horrible too, what with having lived in a marsh and being unwashed most of the time
    Personality: Torg is a rare troll that understands that other creatures fear being hurt, and has dedicated his life to protecting those who can't regenerate like he can. He can get a bit silly in attempting to protect others, but he is very much a willful and capable individual who tries his best to help people, whether that be with mundane things or defending their lives. For the most part, the only reward he wants for such behavior is food. Feed him, and he's a happy troll, but threaten people and he will destroy you.
    Equipment: He has the armor and club described above, but beyond that he doesn't own a thing. Well, except his holy symbol of Pelor, which gives him a little resistance to fire. Not much, but it's there.
    Abilities: Beyond his actually quite considerable skills in fighting, He has the troll's signature ability of regeneration. In fact, he could get his head cut off and it'll grow back within less than half an hour. Without hair, which he would destroy his opponent for, but any limb lost will regenerate in a similar manner. Keeping in mind, however, that acid and fire he'll only heal at a normal speed regarding being injured by them.

The plates that are meant to move flip, roll, and slide out of the way, allowing a variety of cameras, power cables, USB ports, areas for hooking up various other electronics, short-barreled guns, some small rockets, smaller robots that can be detached, generators, screens, recording devices , blinking lights, and small motors that seem to be used for control of flight direction. A bigger pair of motors pops out the back, as well as a well-padded seat about Phil's size.

The machine is a humanoid robot, seven feet tall, hunched over slightly, no head, with large, ovoid and shining black forearms and lower legs as thick as tree trunks. The legs have feet made up of a circle of five flat but wide short toes for balance, and each arm ends with five long, sausage thick silver fingers made of thick bunches of wires. The upper arms and legs are only about as thick as human ones, and are made of a silvery metal and wrapped in bunches of wires of various colors. The body is shining black with a single shining dark blue stripe running top to bottom form the left shoulder to the left leg, and is shaped like some large, hulking torso. The torso is made up of three pieces, the lower area, and two areas that could be defined as 'pecs'. There are several plates that look like they could flip up or slide out of place to reveal something hidden within. Plugged into the torso, near the top, and snugly nestled into a comfortable looking spherical crevice, is a light gray and deep red robot shaped like a fist sized 20 sided die with several antennae and extra bits attached to it and a single red camera lense eye that's skewed to the right a bit.

    Every once in a while, Phil finds a good looking piece and hands it to the robot.

    Personality: Playful, prone to showing off, easily distracted if bored, and completely loyal to Phil. Has the social skills and learning capacity, but has a super computer for a brain and the combat skills of some of history's greatest recorded power suit warriors when in his suit. Has a thing for dramatic timing and can be remarkably wise, grim, or mature at times.
    Abilities: Basic hovering robot scout stuff, though his battle suit makes him an experienced fighter.
    Equipment: A large external suit that has a variety of different weapons and tools installed.
    Backstory: Was the first robot Phil ever made when Phil was just a child, and has gone through multiple upgrades, hardware and software changes, and reboots since then. Is the most receptive to Phil's magic, and no matter how times Rho is rebooted, 'he' is always quickly sentient again thanks to the side effects of Phil's powers.

    "Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat."

    Alias: "The Strategist"
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human, though his enemies might profess otherwise.
    Age: 36
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral, or Blue/White/Black, for all you other color wheel lovers.
    Class/Profession: Tactician/Strategist
    Power Rating: D+. Due to the nature of his abilities, however, he is far more dangerous than this ranking might suggest. He is a strategist first and foremost, so whatever allies he might have are going to be far more dangerous in contact with him than they otherwise would be. Still, he can aim a pistol well enough to deal significant damage.
    Description: He usually wears Civilian Clothing, with a holster attached to his belt. He wears a pair of glasses, as he is near-sighted. He has short, straight brown hair, and has a french accent. He is Caucasian, and of average height and weight. In fact, he looks average enough where most people would be utterly surprised when he utterly trounces them in a game of chess.
    Personality: He has a tendency to apply Sun Tzu's The Art of War to everything he says or does. That alone should tell you all you need to know. He is a thoughtful person, and genuinely interested in preserving life, though he can be incredibly ruthless in pursuing that goal.
    Equipment: He carries no notable equipment, other than his pistol and a few clips worth of ammunition. He also carries a pocketbook edition of Sun Tzu's The Art of War with him at all times, though he never references it. He has it memorized.
    He has recently acquired a fairly large supply of ammunition, including Hollow Point, Armor-Piercing, and Thermonuclear .44 cal. Rounds.
    Much more recently, he has acquired some actual combat equipment, including a suit of airtight bulletproof armor, a Military-Grade Semi-Automatic Shotgun, a mid-accuracy automatic Assault Rifle, and a number of Fragmentation Grenades.

    Abilities: He has minimal ability in most combat areas, though he can use a firearm with astounding accuracy. However, his tactical and strategic sensibilities are ineffable, and he knows when and where best to apply any amount of force to make his enemies crack. He is also amazingly good at research, being able to figure out almost anything with access to enough resources. Finally, he plays a mean game of Chess. And by "mean," I mean "Cruelly play with your pieces until he gets bored, checkmates you, and then shows you how he could have done so in any of the ten preceding turns."
    Backstory: To Come Later.

    Name: Tumbili
    Race: Monkey Spirit
    Age: Uhm...somewhere roughly around 3,000 or so
    Alignment: Crazy...insane...bananas...
    Class: Do we have to be specific here?
    Gender: Well usually male, but he can reincarnate as a female...
    Height: Usually about 5'10" or so
    Weight: Usually around 150lbs.

    Appearance: My avatar. Imagine a human sized monkey walking around in a black fitted shirt ; loose sleeves, black baggy pants; tied at the shins, and a black sash. Hand wrappings and sandals complete the ensemble. Add large ears, orange eyes, massive mane of hair, black fur, tan skin, black tail, monkey feet ( observable without sandals) and an incessant grin, and there you have it.

    Backstory: Gee...uhm....well...he's a monkey spirit...not much else...

    Weapons/Powers: He has a long bamboo pole and the ability to create and control any kind of monkey he so desires, what else do you need? As an additional bonus, he has outstanding acrobatic abilities, and can communicate with animals.

    Behavior: Oh boy! Pretty much, he does what he wants, when he wants, how he wants, where he wants, with whom he wants, for whatever reason he wants, or makes every attempt to do so. He loves to be physically active, has a short attention span, and hates sharp and or pointy things. He loves to eat, and especially loves bananas. In one word, insane.

    Note: Tumbili is a spirit, and therefore very hard to destroy. He takes over the body of a monkey when his current physical form is destroyed. Therefore, his body is not immortal, but he pretty much is. The only way to end him permanently would be to take him into a magically shielded room that spirits can't escape, make sure no monkey's are present, kill his current form, then perform an exorcism. If not, then he will just take over the body of another monkey and come back. It may take him a while, but, he's done it before.

    Alpha

    Alias: Alpha
    Gender: N/A
    Race/Species: Robot
    Age: 0
    Alignment: Lawful Good
    Affiliation: Skeppio, GLoG
    Class/Profession: Bodyguard
    Power Rating: D / 3
    Description: Alpha is a large and burly robot, about a head taller than an average human. Alpha is a dull metallic grey colour, his hands being darker than the rest. Alpha's head is little more than a metal sphere with a single cyclopean eye in the middle. His torso bears an emblem identical to the one on Skeppio's blue tunic.
    Personality: Being an automaton, Alpha does not have his own personality. He follows Skeppio's orders without question. However, he is programmed to protect himself from destruction even if that would conflict with Skeppio's orders.
    Equipment: Lots of steel plating, a few handfuls worth of bolts and a bunch of electronics.
    Abilities: Alpha boasts high endurance, and great physical strength. In contrast with his bulky frame, Alpha can run at high speeds, though this expends a large amount of energy.
    Backstory: Alpha is built from the remains of several broken robots scavenged by Skeppio. He was built to protect and assist his creator.

    Faction Name: The Hunters or The Imbued
    Origin: During the past few weeks, seemingly following the fall of the Empire, some ordinary humans in Inside and Riverside began to experience a strange phenomenon. When confronted by a supernatural threat of some sort, they would recieve a message - a voice, a suddenly appearing writing or something else altogether - urging them to take action. When they did take action, they found themselves equipped with strange powers that helped them drive away, kill or otherwise neutralize the monsters and save innocent humans around them. They managed to find each other and decided that whoever sent those messages had a plan in mind - but they don't know what plan, exactly.
    The truth they don't know is that they were contacted by mysterious beings known as the Messengers or Heralds. In a far away world, they sent select mortals to fight the forces of darkness gripping their society from hiding. In the Nexus, they seem to have a similar goal, even though the monsters work in the open here.
    Goals: Although they don't know who or what the Heralds want, the Imbued have a clear goal - protect the citizenry of Inside from the depredations of supernatural beings. Many of the Imbued, even those who don't hail from there, also see it as their goal to release Riverside from the grip of vampires. They differ on the subject of the exact ways of achieving those goals, of course.
    Members: The number of the Imbued is small, but growing. Men and women from all spheres of society are chosen and given powers. What they have in common is strong convictions - which seems to be what fuels their powers. The weak-minded, complacent and cowardly do not seem to recieve the Call. The hunters come in seven kinds called Creeds:
    • Avengers: Those who want to take the battle to the enemy and see the supernatural monsters destroyed.
    • Defenders: Those who focus on defending their homes, friends, family and neighbourhoods from danger.
    • Judges: Those who seek to make impartial judgements and do whatever the greater good demands.
    • Martyrs: Those who sacrifice everything for the cause, often to atone for real or imagined sins.
    • Innocents: Those who remail open-minded, hopeful and optimistic even in face of sanity-defying monstrosities.
    • Redeemers: Those who want to help first and foremost as well as save all the monsters that can be saved.
    • Visionaries: Those who ask questions, seek answers and try to understand the enemy and their mission.

    Apart from that, there are the Imbued's non-Imbued allies. Although the Hunters work in secret so as to strike the monsters from hiding, some ordinary folk do know of them and help them. While lacking in powers, these people aid the hunters either directly in combat or by information and resources and should not be underestimated.
    Resources and abilities: The Imbued come from all backgrounds, giving them a diverse set of resources and links - if they pool them together, which isn't always easy.
    All Imbued have access to supernatural abilities. Each and every of the hunters can invoke Second Sight - a power that lets them see through illusions and magical masquerades and shields their minds agaisnt supernatural influence. They can "lend" this ability to others in a way, by ridding them of supernatural mental influence. All hunters also have a degree of resistance to harmful magic. Other powers depend on a hunter's Creed and experience. In general, they tend to work on supernaturals only, but not always.
    What is important is that until the Imbued use their powers, they're for all benefits and purposes normal, mortal humans. This allows them secrecy, but makes it difficult to recognize each other.
    Strengths: The Hunters' strength lies in their numbers and diversity as well as secrecy. They can strike from amongst the seemingly defenseless population pretty much anywhere. They're also very hard to magically fool or control.
    Weaknesses: When it comes down to it, the hunters' powers aren't very formidable. But their greatest weakness is the lack of organization - not only do they not understand their powers yet, but they're by default strong-willed people with firm convictions, meaning they don't back down and compromise easily.

    Notable Hunters:

    Johann Pannevitz:
    Spoiler
    Show
    A tall, wiry, bald man with an ugly scar on his face and a gleam of fanatic conviction in his eyes. Johann is an ex-Imperial soldier and a Hunter following the Creed of Judgement. He leads the faction of the Imbued that wants to root the vampires out of Riverside. He possesses considerable powers for a Hunter and is an expert marksman.


    Michael Baksinski:
    Spoiler
    Show
    A skinny and bespectacled man, generally not someone you'd expect to fight monsters, Michael, a Visionary, is nonetheless one of the leaders of the moderate faction of hunters in Riverside. He's an academic man and tends to be in charge of research.



    Elizabeth Marge:
    Spoiler
    Show
    A quiet, soft-spoken short woman who tends to dress in grey, plain-looking clothing, Elizabeth belongs to the Creed of Redemption and is another of the leaders of the Riverside moderates. She usually stays in the back, advising other hunters and only stepping forward to talk to the monsters they deem worthy of it.



    Daniel Hernandez:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Born in the Red Zone, Hernandez is a muscular Hispanic man with a perpetual frown on his face. He's a Hunter from the Creed of Vengeance and one of the unofficial leaders of the Imbued in Inside. He's said to be among the first to be Imbued. He's strong and an experienced brawler - he works for a mechanic.


    Vincent Solomon:
    Spoiler
    Show
    An Innocent, Solomon is a rather think black man wearing glasses - or sunglasses - and immaculate clothing, usually suits. He's highly intelligent and well-spoken and another leader of the hunters in Inside.



    Lee Kwon:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Another Judge and a well-build Asian woman in her thirties, Lee is the last member of the Inside triumvirate of senior Hunters. She's gruff and to the point and she tends to spend most of her time monitoring supernatural activity in the city.

    Saurous Kaer


    Gender: Male
    Race: Elf, with a few undead bits grafted on.
    Age: Somewhere between "Young (for an elf)" and "Middle Aged (for an elf)." His own partially-skeletal nature and a few transmutation and time travel incidents complicate matters further.
    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    Class: Specialist in the field of the partial revivification of necrotic materials
    Power Level: B
    Description: Saurous is a rather ominous figure of the unnatural and leery sort, with dull red eyes, messy black hair and skin of an unhealthy gray hue. Usually dressed in various shades of gray and brown, Saur is not the cheeriest person around. Oh, and the skeletal claw that he has in place of his right hand is rather off-putting as well.

    Personality: "Cold" is one way to put it. "Unemotional," another. However, "uncaring sociopath" is probably the most appropriate. Saurous almost never displays any outward feelings, his emotional spectrum seeming to only stretch from "mildly amused" to "mildly annoyed." This lack of outward expression does not mean that Saurous is by any means docile or harmless, as beneath the cold exterior lies a calculating trickster who will participate in any mean spirited mischief he can think of if he can get some entertainment from it. (By the way, "mischief" can mean anything from tying shoelaces together to replacing organs with small woodland creatures. In fact, he tends to prefer things like the latter.)

    In addition to his maliciously cold-tempered demeanor, Saurous has a severe aversion towards bright, colorful, or even simply cheerful places, objects and people. He thus has a fear of clowns, carnivals, Care Bears and the dreams of children. His reactions to such things tend to vary from simple discomfort to bursting into flame, depending upon the concentration of happy thoughts and the seriousness of the current situation.

    Equipment and Abilities: Saurous is first and foremost very skilled in his craft of choice, necromancy. He has a particular knack for cobbling together all sorts of horrific undead monstrosities, and takes pleasure in manipulating both living and dead flesh to an incredibly creepy degree. He is almost as good at putting living things back together as he is at tearing them apart, and makes a competent healer when in a pinch.

    When not creepin' it up with the necromancy, Saurous is moderately skilled at other schools of magic, particularly illusion and evocation.

    In place of his right arm, Saurous has an undead claw made of hardened bone, with the fingers sharpened down to points. Aside from being one hell of a conversation piece and useful for parrying sword blows, the claw also grants a paralytic touch akin to that of a lich which Saurous makes use of in any occasion. It also allows him to channel deleterious negative energy at will. On another interesting note, the majority of Saur's skeleton appears to also be hardened like his claw, allowing him to withstand a fair bit of damage. However, he will be the first to tell you that attempting to deflect an attack with anything other than the exposed claw is almost blindingly painful.

    Saurous tends to carry with him a small collection of short blades such as knifes and daggers, of both the throwing and stabbing variety. However, most of these blades are not particularly effective in direct battles, and Saur prefers to use magic or his skeletal graft in combat, saving the knives for surprise attacks or ad hoc "surgeries." In addition to his collection of sinister cutting implements, Saur carries with him a number of reagents that he uses in spells, his spell book, and a small supply of countermeasures to be used against undead that he encounters/creates-and-subsequently-loses-control-of.

    Kelral Hrys'tarimar Xar'cha

    Alias: People usually call him Kel if their station is equal to or above his. From anybody else, he hates the nickname
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Draegloth (Half-Glabrezu Demon/Drow)
    Age: 62
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil
    Class/Profession: Military Commander
    Power Rating: B
    Description: See below for a picture. Kelral takes quite a few pains to make sure his mane stays fairly clean in regards to dirt, but if there is battle afoot he will disregard vanity in an effort to enjoy himself to the fullest.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Personality: Psychopathic is a good word to describe Kelral. Unlike most other Draegloth however, he at least has the patience to plan out an attack. This patience, combined with his ferocity and the fact that he's a Draegloth earned him his current position as commander.

    He also has something of a mean streak. He views just about everybody he meets as below his station, and those that he considers of equal station still have to earn his respect. Sadistic to the last, Kelral is perfect for drow society
    Equipment: Wearing plate mail and a Xar'cha tabard, Kelral enjoys wielding blades that would require two hands for any human sized creature. As a matter of fact, he keeps four with him, as he is proficient in fighting with all four at once, though he can hold two in two hands each if that serves his purpose better.
    Abilities: Despite a few inborn abilities courtesy of being half demon, Kelral is really just quite skilled in combat. It's what he enjoys, and so it's what he got good at

    Alias: N/A
    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 20
    Alignment: NG[
    Class/Profession: In D20 Modern terms, a Tough/Dedicated Hero.
    Power Rating: Low, but capable of taking on high-ranking characters, due to being able to neutralize even Epic spells.
    Description: Lizzie is a young woman with light skin, hazel eyes, and brown short hair. Attractive, but not supernaturally beautiful by any means, she... looks normal, to be honest.

    Equipment: Right now? Normal clothes.
    Abilities: Lizzie's right arm houses a power that destroys any magic, psionic, divine, or primal effect that comes into contact with it. This may be instantaneousness in the case of smaller areas of effect, but in the case of large areas, it may take time for the spell to fully dispel. While any level of effect may be dispelled, an effect powered externally can, quite possibly, simply reappear immediately- in this case, she would need to touch the source of the power instead of what is being effected. While this is specific to her right arm, she can also not turn it off. At all.

    Race/Species: Human.
    Age: 22
    Alignment: Chaotic. The Good, Neutral and Evil fluctuate.
    Class/Profession: Pirate, Ninja, and Gunslinger
    Power Rating: C
    Description:
    She's not the type of girl everyone would consider unbelievably beautiful. Rather, she is a bit more on the cute side. If cuteness included two guns holstered at her waist and eyes that implied she wouls not hesitate to use them.

    She doesn't look like a particularly hot-headed girl, which works just as well, because she isn't. If you were forced describe her using one word, the word you'd pick was "screw you" right before punching the person who forced you to describe an entire personality using just one word of the English language. If you were allowed to use more words, you would be able to describe her beautiful red hair, tied back in a high ponytail and her matching deep, dark green eyes.

    Now, if you had to describe her clothes, that would be a bit easier: A tank top small enough that it shows her stomach, and short shorts. It takes less words to describe it than it took fabric to make it. Some things just aren't poetically described.
    Personality: Self-assured, snarky. But in a way, respectful of all life. Just not very respectful of belongings.
    Equipment: Clothes and two guns.
    Abilities: Aiming. Can hit a moving target at.... a very long distance. Dead center. With wind. She's in fairly good athletic shape, but that's about it.
    Backstory: Eventually.

    Oblivion

    Spoiler
    Show


    "I exist only to fight, and to test you. I or the Nexus itself must be destroyed, and only time will tell which it will be."

    Alias: "The Bringer of Destruction," "The Knight of Madness"
    Gender: Genderless.
    Race/Species: Great Old One.
    Age: Ageless.
    Alignment: Claims to be "Above Good and Evil," and fits solidly into Blue and Orange Morality.
    Class/Profession: Some unholy fusion of Knight and Sorcerer.
    Power Rating: Varies. When at full capacity, Oblivion is an entity capable of fighting multiple champions and succeeding. In its true state, it is all the way up to S+. However, when challenged to a duel, it suppresses its own power for the purpose of fairness. When dueling, it reaches a far more manageable power level of A. If even that is too high, it might limit itself even more, though it refuses to drop below B.
    Description: Oblivion appears as a Knight in a suit of plate armor black as the void. Through the visor shines two yellow orbs of light, representing what once may have been eyes. The entity has no form other than the armor, and carries a long black cape that stretches down to its ankles. It stands a terrifying nine feet in height, and wields a longsword.
    Personality: Oblivion has one goal, and one goal only: To find the most powerful beings in the Nexus and test them. If they can defeat him in single combat, he will leave for several days before seeking another foe. If it defeats every being in the Nexus, it fully intends to destroy it completely. It will not concern itself with the weaker beings in the Nexus, either: It will use its powers to wipe them away in great numbers if it so chooses.
    Equipment: It is itself an enchanted suit of armor that will instantly transmute objects in contact with it to dust. Through force of will, it can protect specific objects from this fate. Its cape is enchanted to resist any type of energy completely. It wields a sword that can cut through seemingly indestructible materials like butter, and can even cut metaphysical concepts if it really wants to.
    Abilities: Oblivion is capable of astounding feats of power. It seems to control dust potently, being able to shape it into anything it pleases. It has been known to transform sufficient quantities of dust into minions, new weapons, and even war machines. Secondly, it seems to be able to lift billions of pounds effortlessly, to the degree where it can uproot an entire mountain for use as a bludgeon. Thirdly, it can resist levels of force that should be compacting it into a single speck. It can glide, but it is not capable of true flight. If it so desires, it can conjure a warhorse to ride. It retains these abilities when in 'duel mode,' but they are less pronounced and significantly weaker.
    Backstory: Oblivion was once an ordinary suit of armor. It was infused with the raw anger and hatred of thousands of souls, and now drifts between realities in the hope that one contains an equal.

    ((I heard someone saying that WATCHTOWER doesn't get enough work, and, well, I decided to oblige that subtle offer. ))

    Nexus History: Oblivion awakened here, and promptly ran into Harnel. The resulting battle decimated most of the battlefield, but it ended in Oblivion's victory, but both surviving. It then went to Inside, causing an incident which resulted in a fight with Prometheus and Rebonack, which Oblivion won, only to encounter Edijar. Due to Edijar's ability to stop magic from functioning in contact with him, combined with clever tactics and great skill, the Remnant captain managed to decapitate Oblivion and transport the head to HALO. Oblivion's head wandered the halls for several months, until its body eventually made its way there. By walking on the seafloor. In the meantime, Oblivion used its brain (sort of) and realized some new ideas that could allow it to fight more effectively. Its powers are the same, but it could use them far better. For example, the things it makes out of dust could be made to stick together rather than just he held together by its will. It also learned how to simulate new forms of weaponry.

    It's on its way back to Inside now.

    Due to a series of events and player outrage, Oblivion has been sealed in an ancient Artifact by Sir Hex.

    Orrey Lauhter


    Alias: Shudders, Rey.

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Cyborg Human

    Age: 28

    Alignment: Chaotic Evil, I think.

    Power Rating: C or low B, probably. Fairly scaleable.

    Description: Orrey is a tall, wirey fellow, possessed of lean, dangerous looking muscle. He's caucasian, with a pale complexion, and his arms are marked with old needle scars. He doesn't much seem to care if anyone sees them.

    Of course, once you reach his upper forearms and chest area, a series of glowing neon yellow tattoos begin to appear. They run all the way up to his face, where the 'ink' curls around a pair of hollow dots on his cheeks and meets in a pointed design on the forehead.

    The glow begins to peter out around the top half of Orrey's face, then blossoms again, as his hair is a bloody shock of neon red. The hair sticks up at an angle, slanted back along his scalp in little spikes, and the sides of his head are shaved. It ends in a smoothly curved widow's peak.

    Orrey's features are hard and angular, with a bit of wear and tear in places. His bent nose has obviously been broken before. The curvature of his brow gives him an almost perpetually shady or angry expression. His pupils and irises are all a solid circle of red drifting in white. Of course, the white of the sclera is only applicable sometimes, as his eyes are bloodshot all too often.

    Due to constant drug use, Orrey's hands shake almost all the time. He has a slight, easily perceptible tick to him if he sits still long enough.

    Personality: Orrey is a predator in a world of weak, soft creatures. He's the biggest dog, the toughest bastard, and anyone who contests this fact usually ends up beaten or dead. Orrey is an angry individual, rarely challenged in his chosen circles, but he is not stupid. He wins all his battles because he chooses them. He's obviously a domininant individual, particularly because a superior would end up restricting his freedom. He'll tolerate an equal relationship, but someone giving him orders too often would probably become irksome for both parties.

    Equipment: Most prominent is the metal mask he wears over his face. It's another method of juicing him up during strenuous activity, so he often slaps it on if his arm-mounts are empty.

    Speaking of which, his forearms are entirely artificial. They have fan-like compartments than can slide out to reveal several specialized syringes. With this mechanism, he can inject himself without actually sticking a needle in his arm. Through a cocktail of several drugs, Orrey can transform himself into a human monster.

    His other more prominent item is his weapon. A length of metal rod, formed into the haft of some cross between an axe and a sword. Two clamps hold the blade in place, a length of neon-orange hardlight, one of the most durable substances known to man. He can place two hands on the lower part of the rod, or slip one around the weapon in the thin space between the jagged blade and the haft itself.

    Abilities: Orrey is a skilled, savage fighter, swift and merciless in his assault. He is strong, durable, and becomes much moreso when he's on his drugs. Nanobots can weave him back together pretty well. His senses increase drastically when he's using.

    He might have more drug-related abilities too that I merely can't think of. Meh.

    Oh, some actual career skills! As I said, he's not stupid. His background selling drugs has afforded him some knowledge of makeshift chemistry, and other... unscrupulous activities have gradually versed him in building, fixing and maintaining machinery.

    Backstory: To come later. Probably pretty mediocre for a violent junky. Broken home, absent parents or siblings, career criminal.

    Jasmine White

    Alias: Jaz

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 20

    Class/Profession: N/A

    Power Rating: E

    Description: Jasmine is quite skinny. It seems like barely any fat or muscle lies between her skin and bones. That's what a good metabolism and no exercise gets her. Her skin is quite pale. Not overly so, but you can be confident she doesn't go outside much. Overall her appearance is pretty average. Not overly attractive, but not unattractive either. Her eyes are a dark green and her smile is crooked. Her plain, brown hair is usually pulled up in a rough ponytail. When it isn't, it just hangs at shoulder length, straight and uninteresting. She is a bit above average in height and her breasts are small. She wears baggy and unrevealing clothing. Tan cargo pants, brown runners, a green t-shirt, and a grey hoodie. A pair of glasses always rest on her nose. They rest quite low and she always seems to look out of the very top of them.

    Personality: She's somewhat shy and awkward, and a bit anti-social. She can bring herself to talk to people, however. Especially if there's a good topic to work with. She generally cares about others, although sometimes she wishes she didn't. To her it's not just a thing you can switch on and off. She has a knack for laziness and procrastination. Sometimes she can care too much about what others think of her, and gets embarrassed easily as a result. She's generally laid back and isn't one to worry about things overly much.

    Equipment:
    - A pair of somewhat square glasses.
    - A wallet containing a bit of money.
    - A cell phone with a crappy battery.
    - A leather, analog watch.
    - A black hat.
    - A shiny steel bracer that can activate to create a buckler out of a nearly transparent, purple energy.
    - A knife that vibrates rapidly to saw as it cuts.
    - A Grecian style bronze helm etches with small runes. It allows her to see in the dark.
    - Grecian style bronze greaves etched with small runes. They make her move slightly faster.

    Abilities: Pretty much nothing. Unless of course you call being a fast reader an ability. Or maybe her amazing ability to procrastinate. She's not a terrible singer either. Though she can't exactly be called good.

    Backstory: Jasmine hasn't lead a particularly interesting life compared to most people in the Nexus. She went to school, had a few friends, but for the most part she was a loner. She generally did well in school, but had trouble mustering the will to care. She ended up going to tech school after leaving high school. She was doing some homework and fell asleep at her desk when she found herself waking up in the Nexus.

    Rosalia Nacari

    Alias: Rose

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Human // Vampire

    Age: 28 // Turned 21

    Profession: AMENite

    Power Rating: B-

    Description: Rose has the pale skin, red eyes, and fangs typical of a vampire, but there are some important differences. She is beautiful, and not naturally so. The best way to put it is that she is divinely beautiful. Her skin is flawless, her billowing, silver hair is never out of place. Even covered in blood, which she frequently is, she still has that look of angelic beauty. But don't be mistaken, she still looks dangerous. Her vampire features give the divine beauty a ferocious edge. Her eyes always have a wild look in them. She wears a flowing, low cut, black dress, as is suitable of female vampires. She has elegent, elbo length gloves that never seem to suffer damage in a fight. Adorning her waist and hair are her trophies of her angel kill. They are made of gold and white feathers from the angel's wings.

    Personality: Rose is savage and feral. She is wild, but can easily control herself when it becomes necessary. She has a certain cunning about her that makes her deadly in a fight. Although, she can quickly become blinded by bloodlust and rage. In her laid back moments, she has an amazing ability to be cruel. She delights in the suffering of others and has a tendency to be mocking and rude. She veiws mortals as lesser beings, as cattle, and sees vampires as superior to all other beings.

    Equipment:
    - A short, curved sword. It is weighted for throwing and, with some concentration, she can return it to her hand.
    - A golden belt and hair clip. Both are trophies of the angel she killed, that in they are decorated by the angel's feathers.

    Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Strengths
    ~Can turn into a bat, a wolf, or a cloud of smoke at will.
    ~Has unnatural strength that exceeds that of a normal man.
    ~Can regenerate, but at a slow pace.
    ~Can suck the blood of the living by biting them. She can turn them into a vampire, but it is something that has to be done deliberately.
    ~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. It weakens her and makes her vomit. It won't kill her.
    ~When exposed to the sun, she is weakened to a less than human level.
    ~Burns 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: Rose never did fit in with the rest of society in Gul-Thadar. She was hard to control and dangerous, even as a human. When she was turned certain arrangements had to be made. She just wouldn't conform to the life of a civilized vampire. One might question why they tolerated her. Why not just be rid of her like so many other problem vampires? The reason was that she was useful. She was a blunt object to be directed at a problem and it would go away. Violently and messily go away. She's powerful and has a certain cunning about her. She'd been associated with Ramiro for a few months before coming to the Nexus. When she heard that Ramiro and others were leaving, she took the opportunity to go somewhere where the laws constraining her were a bit less ridged.

    Miscellaneous: She is addicted to angel blood despite the harm it does to her, and will crave it over the blood of mortals. Drinking it has changed her significantly.

    Thanks to a certain flesh warping vampire, Rose's bones have been greatly strengthened and a bone shell encases her heart.

    Cedric Flynn

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Pixie

    Age: 24

    Profession: N/A

    Power Rating: E

    Description: Cedric is an average size for a pixie. That is, very small. His skin is a coppery colour, his hair is as well. His amber eyes are bright and attentive and his smile is white and wide. The wings on his back are that of a dragonfly's. He wears a blue long coat and a similarly blue cavalier hat with a big, white plume. He has a white shirt, black boots, and brown pants. All his clothes are finely made.

    Personality: Cedric can be best described as chivalrous. He's very old fashion in his behaviour. He is quite fond of women, although always in an appropriate manner. One might say that he is over the top in his mannerisms.

    Equipment:
    - A side-sword made of a thorn.
    - A bucklerthat usually hangs from his waist.
    - A cavalier hat with a big, white plume.

    Abilities: Cedric is a skilled swordsman. He fights in the swashbuckler style. His size is a serious limitation, but he makes due quite well.

    He has an unlimited supply of pixie dust. It's pretty much a swiss army knife in dust form. It has a variety of functions I have yet to define.

    Backstory: Cedric is a Nexus born pixie, which might explain his peculiar dress for his kind. He's mostly spent his time in the forest, but he's traveled around a bit.

    Esme

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Chain Devil // Brachina Variant

    Age: Old

    Alignment: Lawful Evil

    Profession: Procure of Souls

    Power Rating: C-

    Description: Esme's favorite disguise is that of a beautiful, exotic young woman. (Not particularly exotic by the Nexus' standards of course.) Her skin is a copper colour and her hair is long, flowing, and black. She has pretty red eyes. She wears a low cut orange dress that is slit all the way up one leg and accents her curves perfectly. An orange bandana is wrapped around her head and gold hoop earings dangle from her ears.

    Her true form has many differences, but it remains similar. The most striking difference it that her hair is replaced by lengths of fine jewelry chain. Her features become slightly more angular, but are still basically the same. Her clothing is completely replaced with lengths of strategically placed chains.

    Personality: Esme is professional in her work, but she isn't afraid to take a certain pleasure in it too. She enjoys the control she can have over others. She doesn't really care for her victims except for their capacity to supply her with souls. However, she is masterful in making people believe the opposite.

    Equipment:
    - A ruby ring that can store a single soul.

    Abilities: Esme's abilities are quite subtle. Their purpose is to make stealing people's souls possible.

    One method involves seduction. Her touch and presence, to a lesser degree, have the effect of making people more comfortable around her for various reasons can be directed to make the person desire her. This effect is especially potent when used through a kiss and much more so through curtaining.

    Promises of power are another common method. She has the ability to grant power in exchange for a soul. She can also make her promises sound much more compelling.

    She can also capture a soul after someone is killed in a particular way. Said way not yet defined. More than likely an unpleasant experience, even by the standards of dying.

    Backstory: Esme is an experienced soul collector. She's been to many different dimensions to do her work. When not on a job she dwells in the Hells. She likes being in the mortal realms much more than the Hells, so she works a lot.

    Miscellaneous: Any person that Esme has been working toward gaining their soul will have an incorporeal chain extending from their chest to her hand. The chain is only visible when she wills it or she can't focus on making it invisible.

    Tasgoth Tzarzathia Ts'isse

    Alias: Tas for short
    Gender: Non-gendered (Masculin appearance)
    Race/Species: Tzarzian (Humanoid Plant, FROM SPACE)
    Age: 327 cycles [Approx mid-30s]
    Alignment: Has Blue/Orange morality, as being both an alien as well as plant-based gives him different views on actions. Best defined by a Chaotic Good alignment.
    Class/Profession: Explorer
    Power Rating: About C+, Rank 5
    Description: Tasgoth is roughly humanoid in shape, witht eh standard pair of arms, legs, a body and head, his skin best resembling bark in various shades of brown. He only has 3 fingers, each one thick and long with a hard thorn on the tip fo each that acts as a claw. His feet are wider and ratehr than having toes it simply splits into various root-like structures. When standing in soil for long enought he roots would begin growing into the ground.
    His head is where the bark texture of his skin smooths out, his eyes a solid dark green and oval shaped, his mouth non-existant as he requires none to speak. He has three large slits between his two long eyes that open and close periodicly. His abdomen does not rise so it is unlikely he ues this nose-like to actually breathe. He has no ears, simply brightly colored spots where his ears would be. His head has several tendrils that are best described as dreadlocks, pulled back and growing down the back of his neck and where his 'spine' would be. He also has a few branch-like structures that grow alogn his brow, their purpose unknown.
    Overall his build would be bes described as 'athletic' though his musculature is mostly just appereance as he has no real musculature system, instead they're replaced by strong, sinew plant fibers that dpo not wear out like muscle. He is roughly 6' 8'', and his arms, legs, and neck all seem stretched out, being a bit longer than a human's. He wears no actual clothing as he has no concept of 'modesty' or 'fashion' and simply wears a metal belt which contains several alien tools, a bracelet which seems to act as a communicator of sorts, and an ornamental crescent that wrests on his collar, held in place by the texture of his skin. It seems to be only ornamental in purpose.
    Personality: Tas is highly curious, especially about fleshlings (what he refers humans, elves, and other creatures of flesh and bone as). He asks all sorts of questions, hiding his excitment as best he can. Since he does not speak with vocalizations his method of communication makes lieing more difficult, and he has a habit of asking inappropriate questions, as his race doesn't have the same sense of self as some fleshling races do. He also loves to share stories, fascinated by things he's never heard of and places he's never been to (but would really liek to go to them). While his behavior at times seems very hurried and in the moment, his long term thoughts and plans are very set and do not change easily. He is slow to adapt to new things, but willing to at least try. Social curtosies are foreign to him so he can be a bit abrassive and get in peoples' personal space often.
    Equipment: Alien utility belt - contains a strange sort of technology that 'grows' tools Tas needs, limited only by the tool requiring only mechanical functioning or chemical functioning.
    Metal Wrist Bracelet - Opens to reval a holographic screen that Tas apparently uses to communicate with his ship, as well as beign used for recording, scanning and analyzing.
    Chest Circlet - Smooth metal, reminiscent of a doublestung-longbow. Purpose unknonw, ornamental?
    Ship - Sentient metalic ship, made of a solid frame with a 'liquid metal' skin that forms all of the interior as well as the exterior shape and weapons. Non-metalic internal parts are 'carried' and held in place by the liquid metal, which is solid most of the time unless reshaping, and can reliquify than solidify at any time. Ship is named Adalae and has a feminine personality, is very protective of Tas and treats most other creatures with mild annoyance. 'She' speaks telapathicly and is capable of atmospheric, intergalactic, and hyper-space travel. While she can create some impressive weapons and is ana gile craft her derfenses are limited.
    Abilities: Tas is a plant-based life form, able to survive on very little. His abilities are varied and include:
    Spore Communication - Tas speaks to other creatures through spores that float passively throught eh air around him. these spores are completely harmless and allow him to speak directly to a subject for as long as the spores exist. Spores will last for as long as 2 weeks, at which time Tas can speak to an individual introduced to them from as far as several miles away. The spores do not work on non-organic creatures or undead so his speech with these creatures is limited, as his vocalizations would make no sense to them. Anyone who is around Tas for prolonged periods of time can maintain the link for longer than normal. Tas can hear, but verbal communication takes time to translate. Telepathic communication is met with a relief, as while he cannot not initaite it, he has little problems speaking back and forth once a telepath has made contact. The spores tend to translate emoitons and intent with the words and ideas so sarcasm and lieing are harder to get past.
    Resilence - Tas is made of a tough organic material that is plant-based, allownig him to recover quickly from even severe injuries, even regrow limbs. He is very strong for his size and does not tire. He does not truely sleep, but meditates for a couple of hours every few days for similar reasons and to process all that he has learned recently. When in direct sunlight his strength and durability is further increased.
    Malleable - He has some limited control of his body, allowing him to extend his reach a short distance and form crude weapons on his body. His body also can easilly dissipate the impact of a flat blow like a blunt weapon or falling, making these types of damage less effective against him.
    Susceptible - His body, being plant based, can catch fire more easily than a human's flesh, and while the damage woudl heal and he doesn't actually feel the pain the same way, it would dry him out and make the burnt regions more brittle. Poisons and spells that specifically target plants also affect him
    Dependent - He can go a few days without it but water is very important to him. He can absorb a gallon of water directly through his skin, especially his roots. He can also draw nutrients from soil with his roots and to him different soils have different tastes. Offering him exotic and exceptionally nutritious soil can give him a boost of energy (liek coffe!) Likewise he requires an hours worth of sunlight every week or his body starts to shrivel. After 4 weeks without sunlight he is too weak to stand and his skin becomes very pale, with some of it peeling off.
    Plant specific - Tas can speak to plants and encourage their growth, as well as command plant based life-forms of low intelligence. Plant creatures that are not purely chaotic evil are friendly towards him, and even wild 'evil' plantlife is less hostile towards him than usual.
    Backstory: To be filled in later (cause I've written a lot) Short Version:
    Tas is an explorer for his people from a distant galaxy. He and his ship, whom he's telepathicly bound to, travel from system to system analyzing, categorizing, and having some adventures here and there. They were sucked into the Nexus which doesn't seem to bother them much. They are unaware of a horrible fate that has befallen their home system.
    Miscellaneous: As a non-gendered being, as well as plant based and alien, social context is unknown to him and he doesn't understand fleshling concepts the same way, though he might have analogous ideas of his own that can be related.
    OOC Desc FoUT:
    Dhra Gruut, Male Mintauran, seven feet tall and covered in a greying hair, long grey twisting horns jut from his skull toward his rear, adding another foot to his height; has a long grey and black beard that drifts down from his chin. His eyes are a deep green and he regularly adds marking to his body as he casts. Carries several short spears on his back. Small pouches attach to his waist, smelling of balms. On his arms a pair of leather bracers embedded with quartz.

    (1st Lieutenant) Blaine Bersher Cainen
    Alias: BBC; Cain
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 20
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Class/Profession: Soldier/Combat Engineer/Weapons Specialist/Tech
    Power Rating: B
    Description: Blaine stands at a total height of approximately 61. He weighs approximately 210 lbs with only about 3% of that weight being comprised of fat. His hair is of a sleek, ebony tone. The hair on his head is generally two inches long and, of course, cut and styled regularly, as any crew cut should be. His skin is dark tan. Blaine is rather muscular (which is a requisite if one is to survive what he has endured). His muscle groups are as immaculate as the muscle groups of a human can possibly be. His chin is pronounced and cleft. Blaine痴 eyes are orbs of a cerulean tone. His forehead features no widows peak. His nose is neither too long, nor too short. Blaine is consistently well-groomed and clean shaven. His cheekbones are high. Being a product of military eugenics, Blaine is thought to be an embodiment of the 菟erfect human, though in reality he is as imperfect as they come.
    Personality: Blaine seems quite haughty, but actually harbors quite a bit of self doubt. He and his brethren were designed to exemplify the perfect warrior. The pressure placed upon Blaine to be flawless in everything he does has had a profound negative effect on his psyche. Blaine is cruel and efficient. He hates everyone equally. He will not hesitate to exact brutal punishments on criminals, many featuring prolonged torture followed by isolation. Blaine prefers to allow those who would cross him to take their own lives. They make a better deterrent if they are so traumatized that they no longer wish to exist. There is a reason for Blaine痴 merciless, sadistic nature, but that is best left to be revealed IC. Blaine is skeptical of people who claim that their intentions are 堵ood or 兎vil. Blaine understands that there is no such thing as good or evil, merely there is and there isn稚. It is also worth noting that Blaine suffers sporadically from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (also known as Battle Fatigue). His perfect memory occasionally forces him to relive gruesome events from his life before the Nexus. These often take the form of nightmares, plaguing Blaine while he sleeps, driving him towards the gaping precipice commonly referred to as insanity. In spite of Blaine痴 imperfections, he possesses many 堵ood attributes. He is: always willing to help those in need (whether he appears as though he wants to help is another story), completely loyal, committed to performing all tasks assigned to him to the best of his ability, eternally seeking self-improvement, thoughtful, (occasionally) kind, reliable in a crisis, militaristic (which may be good or bad, depending on how someone is interacting with him), logical, and encouraging. Music plays a very critical role in his life as well. He relies on music to offer him a reprieve from his station in life. When Blaine hears music he favors, he becomes open and relaxed, even 吐un to be around.
    Equipment: At current, nothing more than a solid, mundane, black jumpsuit with a many pockets and zippers.
    Abilities:
    -Blaine possesses a few psychic abilities. Blaine can: move items with his mind, bend space a bit to make distances shorter or longer, send off a psychic energy pulse to throw all items and energy near his location away from his location, establish neural links with other beings minds (allowing them to enhance (or impede) each other痴 abilities and reaction times, utilize one another痴 senses, and share memories), perceive objects without seeing them, (attempt to) force intangible forces to become corporeal, and create psychic shields to prevent items or beings from entering certain areas as long as he continues to focus on maintaining said shields.
    -Blaine is able to construct various advanced technologies. He is skilled in multiple fields of engineering.
    -Blaine can stabilize wounds. He can稚 heal them, but stabilization is better than nothing.
    -The intensity of Blaine's training has decreased his reaction time.
    -Blaine has a high pain threshold.
    -Blaine is highly trained in unarmed combat. It can be argued that he excels in unarmed combat more than he does in armed combat. His fighting style hinges on speed rather than power, avoiding blows and eradicating the enemy with "bug bites" rather than "boulders."
    -Blaine can utilize various weapons in combat. If an item can be used by humans in combat, Blaine will find a way. For conventional weapons, it is likely that he will find the proper way (for example, firing a bullet from a rifle). If the weapon is alien in origin, it is likely that Blaine will, with proper time and resources, develop or realize a way to use the weapon that isn稚 throwing it at a foe or using it to take shelter behind. Sorrowfully, he cannot make sense of how magical weapons operate.
    -Blaine can conduct cyber warfare operations. He isn稚 as skilled at it as an AI would be, but he can perform decently in the event that a capable and friendly AI is nowhere to be found.
    -Blaine has a perfect memory.
    -Blaine痴 will and psychic ability lessen the effects of mind-influencing magic.
    -Blaine痴 mind is extremely tactical and logical.
    -Blaine痴 strength, stamina, and speed are a smidgeon above average for a human of his age.
    -Blaine can play the piano, play the saxophone, and sing.
    -Blaine has an immunity to assorted types of venom (particularly the snake venom). Having poison frequently forced into one痴 body does have a benefit or two.
    Disabilities:
    -Blaine痴 immune system is weak. This is due to the fact that he has been literally pumped full of antibiotics since his 澱irth.
    -Blaine doesn稚 quite know how to casually interact with people. He is at ease around military personnel and can effectively communicate with them. When Blaine is surrounded by normal people (or, in the case of the Nexus, abnormal people), however, he becomes very rigid, pompous, and socially awkward.
    -Blaine speaks English exclusively, not Common. Hopefully, this obstacle will be quickly overcome.
    -Blaine suffers from bouts with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and all of the nasty effects which accompany it. When Blaine is suffering from this ailment, his psychic defenses are lowered, making him quite vulnerable to mental suggestion and assault.
    Backstory: All that can be currently ascertained about Blaine is that he is a soldier from another plane. When the backstory is revealed IC, it will be added here shortly thereafter.
    Favorite Music: Fortunate Son (Clearance Clearwater Revival)
    Favorite Quote: (Gordon Freeman, Half-Life Series) (展hy? Because Freeman lets his bullets do the communicating for him!)
    Favorite Color: Navy
    Blood Type: O- Saturated With Poison
    Voice: Blaine's voice is in the tenor range. It is a rich, booming voice. Blaine speaks with a slight British accent.
