    Background: CT was created when Tialait cast a ritual called "The Genius Loci" on the AMEN base. A side effect is that it left Tia completely helpless and her own power couldn't be kept inside her. Her power drained into the AMEN base and created a child version of her.

    Background: Rificul was an American tourist to London in 2000, by the name of Jack Clayton. During the new years party the lights flickered out and he panicked and ran into a part and under a bridge afraid of looters coming to kill him. Hiding under that bridge a brick was removed and a man spoke to him. Telling him to hand him his hand. He reached out for some human comfort, he felt pure pain as the fangs sank into his wrist and started draining him. Slowly the pain turned to pleasure as the estacy of embrace sat in. He awoke the next night turned into an undead monster. He could hear voices telling him who he was. He was no longer Jack, he was Rificul Malkav. He was a nightmare.

    Jag Wier
    Gender: Male
    Race: Neko
    Age: 20
    Alignment: CN
    Class: Musician
    Description: Unkempt, very long brown hair, with ears just barely poking through. Jag is recovering from a pitched battle with acne, but it's not really noticable. He's on the short side, but he's still fairly heavy... wears fairly unremarkable clothes. Beat up jeans, beat up shoes, and shirts with bands you've never heard of.
    Rating: Eh.
    Equipment: Fender Jaguar, Gibson SG, Vox AC30, A decent sized pedalboard, and a truck full of other music gear. Most of it in different stages of disrepair. Also, a laptop containing several dozen gigabytes of dubiously legaly acquired software. And a machete, just in case.
    Personality: Jag is a rock star, or at least he will be once people start listening to his band...
    Abilities: Rocking the hell out. Adding a rather nonsensical perspective to otherwise logical conversations. And really? That's about it.

    Gib and Esp
    Jag's utterly unremarkable rhythm section. Gib, the bassist, doesn't talk much because, well, bassists tend to be the quiet sort. And Esp doesn't talk much because he's a drummer and therefore not allowed to.

    Grant "Black-Fire" Brandt





    Alias: Black-Fire

    Race/Species: Daemphage

    Age: 27

    Alignment: Chaotic Good

    Class/Profession: Soldier

    Power Rating: 10


    Description:

    Thank you for the awesome drawing of Grant, Beans!

    Equipment: Grant owns a sword, shield, knife, halberd, hand gun, an eleven dagger, sword, shield and ray gun in addition to his own abilities, though he would rather use his sword or halberd than his powers..

    Backstory: Grant is the first experiment from an attempt to create a soldier that was perfect for fighting demons on the lower planes of existence. The scientist who created him once wrote that he had many emotional problems but that in terms of physical power, he was what they needed. He was trained and then sent to fight with the soldiers that were already fighting the demons. At one point he was tired of fighting and he was able to leave because of his good service. He ended up on this plane of existence in a remote village where he was found by his teacher Zero who trained him after he saw potential in him. It was there that Grant learned to use his power which is the use of dark energy to attack and defend. While he was living there he met one of the scientists that helped create him and she eventually became friends with him, but one day, Zero who was part of an earlier experiment to create creatures that could kill the planar, had killed the scientist. Grant ran away from the village and eventually ended up in HALO.

    Miscellaneous: None.

    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Deeptroll
    Age: 120; prime of life.
    Alignment: Neutral-ish.
    Class/Profession: Hunter-scavenger
    Power Rating: C- with blindfold on or nighttime without blindfold; E- well lit area blindfold off; B- without blindfold in a cave.
    Description: A white-skinned humanoid creature wearing a leather loincloth and a heavy blindfold over large eyes. Protruding from the center of his forehead is a stalk of flesh ending in a glowing bulb, and similar light-generating organs are on his wrists. He's at least 7ft tall, maybe taller if he didn't slouch.
    Equipment: None, beyond loincloth and blindfold.
    Backstory: I'll think of one, probably.
    Miscellaneous: Capable of limited regeneration, generates light from various parts of his body and has very good eyesight in conditions of limited to no light; too much light entering his eyes hurts him a lot, however, and he tends to pay no attention to his other senses when in bright light as he fights to find shade.

    Alignment: Chaotic Good

    Class/Profession: Soldier

    Power Rating: Lee's power level is 8 at maximum and by default he is at level 5. He can raise his power level up to 7 on his own but just like Grant, he needs someone else to help him reach full power.

    Description: Lee is thinner than Grant but just as tall, he has dyed fire engine red hair and eyes that seem to always be filled with anxiety an

    Equipment: Lee has at least four swords and if one of them is not in it's sheath on his belt he has a case for all of his swords. After a run in with a vampire Lee now carries a syringe filled with silver particles suspended in liquid meant to paralyze vampires.

    Backstory: Lee was from the second generation of planar soldiers. The things he saw in combat starting from a young age progessed into a severe disorder causing him to have flash backs and extreme stress in large crowds.

    Aurea Chrysos


    Alias: Aurea Goswell, Aurea Vulpan.
    Gender: Female.
    Race/Species: Gold Dragon.
    Age: Only about one full, forum year. But she has a powerful curse on her that makes her age at an incredible rate, making her physically and mentally an Adult Dragon. Obviously, her maturity and experience are significantly lower than her peers. In the human form she usually takes, she looks to be in her mid-20s
    Alignment: LG
    Class/Profession: Archaeologist/Scholar
    Power Rating: C

    Description: When Aurea is in her Golden Dragon form (which is surprisingly rare), she looks like, well, a freaking golden dragon. When she's in her more common human form, she has cream colored skin (nicely tanned from being out in desert dig sites), hazel colored eyes, and golden hair.
    Personality: Having only been in the world for a little over a year, Aurea has an incredibly hard time with social interactions. So she tries to avoid them as much as possible and, when that fails, she's rather awkward and bashful. She is most confident when she's lecturing talking to people about literature or history, which are her great passions.
    Equipment: Books. Aurea always has a books, wherever she goes. Other then writing equipment, she doesn't carry much gear.
    Abilities: Aurea has all the abilities of a fire breathing, spell casting dragon. But she is not one for combat, and rarely fights.
    Backstory: To come later
    Miscellaneous: Has Dragon-greed for shinies and valuable objects.

    The Moff's Fifth Delta


    Alias: Delta 5 calls himself Quintus. The other Deltas call him 5 or D5. (Too easy? Deal with it. )
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human... sort of.
    Age: That's a toughie. Objectively, he was cloned a few months ago. Subjectively, he's about thirty years old.
    Alignment: LN. Fiercely LN.
    Class/Profession: Fighter
    Power Rating: C+
    Descrption: Unfortunately, D5 looks quite similar to The Moff. However, he's significantly bulkier and more heavily muscled, and has quite a few more scars. Needless to say, he avoids anything resembling The Moff's uniform, prefering a more practical chain shirt and overcoat.
    Personality: D5 is lawful to a tee: he has his values, and he sticks to them like glue. He absolutely despises The Moff, most of the other Deltas, and aberrations. He's a rather cold fellow, but he means well.
    Equipment: Nothing but the clothes and armor he's wearing, and a greatsword.
    Abilities: D5 spent 30 saubjective years in the Yellow Road observing some of the greatest fighters in the multiverse, and honing his art. The time also made him... less, and more, than human. Physics don't work for him the same way they work for everyone else: he can hit slightly harder, run slightly faster, and absorb slightly more damage. The only thing that dramatically sets him appart from a normal human is his ability to heal incredibly fast.
    Backstory: He's a clone of The Moff who was corrupted and altered by the Yellow Road. He believes D7 is his responsibility.

    D5 has been retired due to being no fun to play and being way too similar to Wenomir for me to really get away with.

    The Moff's Seventh Delta

    Aliases: D7 prefers the name D7, though D5 insists on calling him Septus.
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Quite a bit less human than D5.
    Age: Again, this one's tricky. In the Yellow Road, time doesn't flow linearly. So while D5 is about 30, D7 is 14.
    Alignment: CN, but closer to CG than anything else.
    Class/Profession: Smartass in training.
    Power Rating: C-
    Description: D7 looks like a perfectly normal 14 year old human, although there's still plenty of The Moff in his looks. His only change of clothes is a pair of jeans and a Dream Theater t-shirt.
    Personality: D7 means well. He's just very, very bad at the "impulse control" thing. He loves music, but of quite a different variety then his Prime. As evidenced by the DT shirt.
    Equipment: A completely normal butterfly knife. D5 doesn't know he has it.
    Abilities: D5's powers are rather erratic. When under great stress, he can teleport through the Yellow Road in a manner similar to Jack Empty, and he's even more durable than D5. He has quite the affinity for machines and magic, especially where the two intersect. But as he doesn't know much about either, at the moment.

    Raz



    Alias: Razputin, Luke Benedict (although that's a true name and no-one knows it ...)

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 26

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

    Class/Profession: Mastigos Burglar/Thief/Traceur (In DnD terms the closest is probably a Gestalt Sorcerer//Thief-Acrobat)

    Power Rating: Now probably A. Rarely has the acumen to use his high end powers properly in a fight though.

    Description: A handsome, young man with a Mediterranean cast to his features. He has boyish good looks - tight, short curly black hair, and green eyes. He is physically very fit. He normally wears a shabby hoody and tracksuit combo, with duct tape around the waist, wrists, and ankles, flashy ski goggles around his neck, and expensive, magically enhanced running trainers and gloves.

    Personality: Normally cheerfully optimistic and friendly. He tends to be impulsive and dislikes scheming and manipulation. Can be petty and sulky. Ultimately looking out for number one, he will stick his neck out for his mates if he has to. Has a ... problem with alcohol and other narcotics. He tells himself he can quit any time he wants to, though. He is also a compulsive womaniser. When he can. He likes to think of himself as heroic. He'd be wrong.

    Equipment: Anything he can 'port in. Usually carries a butterfly knife, lockpicks, enchanted goggles that enable the wearer to see magic and magical effects, and gloves that can be used to dispel magical effects. Has a varied and interesting collection of magic items he has ... liberated. Due to his job, he has access to anything related to breaking and entering, and any real world weapons frequently traded. He favours either an automatic combat shotgun, or a pair of enchanted smgs. He recently obtained fully functional rocket shoes in a scenario of dubious canon.

    Abilities: Raz is a Mastigos mage; an apprentice in Mind and Matter, and an adept master in Space. For those not familiar with Mage the Awakened, that means he has limited ability to influence the minds of the others, and to protect his own (Mind), a limited ability to manipulate physical matter (Matter), and very powerful control over Space, including advanced applications of teleportation and portals, the ability to duplicate himself, scry on things, create small pocket realms, and just generally abuse distance, size, and relation. Recently, using powerful, obvious magics, or giving in to emotional extremes causes him to manifest fiery eyes and the smell of brimstone.

    Mundanely, Raz is a master thief, expert at stealth, sleight of hand, lockpicking, etc. He can just about get your belt while talking to you if he tries. He is an experienced athlete, with lots of experience of free running, tumbling, and parkour. He can handle himself defensively in a fight, due to extreme dexterity and magical spacial manipulation, but he is not really a skilled fighter. He is a tolerable shot with a pistol or smg.

    Backstory: Raz was born an ordinary human in London. Poor and fatherless, he swiftly turned to crime, and later, unrelated, free running. At 15, sitting alone in a police holding cell, waiting to be busted for dealing drugs, he Awoke as a mage. After a surreal jaunt to what appeared to be hell, cumulating in him scrawling his name in his own blood at the top of a watchtower. Returning to reality, he found himself atop a nearby skyscraper. He was swiftly inducted into the Mysterium, an order of Mages, and trained in cat burglary and space magic, so as to ... liberate items of importance.

    After a spell misfired, he was sucked into the NEXUS, where he has joined NO, recently obtaining the rank of second in command

    Captain Tobias Abraham Johnson
    Power Level: C (Possibly C+)

    Height: 6’ 2”
    Weight: 91 KG
    Gender: Male
    Race: Wolf Man
    Country of Origin: Eagleland
    Professions: Inventor, Airship Pilot, Soldier, Captain
    Current Occupation: Retired
    Last known location: In a bar in Cusper, Eagleland, believed to be the proprietor
    Dangerous Posessions: One unlicensed flintlock pistol, one military issued cutlass.
    Disposition: Unpredictable, believes himself to be invincible
    Alignment: Lawful Chaotic Neutral (Believes in honor, but not in obeying the law to the letter)


    Background - From a universe where steampunk technology and magic reigned supreme, Captain Tobias Abraham Johnson was about to set off on a fantastic adventure of plundering and piracy, when he was caught by the royal guard and cast into the ocean, left to the wiles of the sea to meet his demise.

    The sea took pity on him, and cast him into a new world where the royal guard would not reach him. He washed up against the coastline, and was found and rescued by Captain Valeriya Vela Russkij.

    From there...who knows where the wind will take him?

    Abilities - Captain Tobias has above-average strength, even for a half-wolfman, and is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, though he prefers to use his skill as a swordsman to win a fight. Or his skill as a marksman. He is a proficient navigator, but is still adjusting to the star patterns and land masses of the Nexus.

    Characteristics - Captain Tobias is a gentleman, and will always give his opponent a fair opportunity to fight back, provided that they do the same for him. He has the heart of an adventurer, and is always seeking to expand his knowledge of the world around him. He strongly believes that all men should be free to do as they please, as long as they don't go about hurting people in the process.

    Weapons and Equipment - Tobias carries with him a cutlass with a red jewel attached to the hilt, providing a slight magical enhancement to the blade's power and speed. Over his left eye he wears a glass monocle, which serves as a vision enhancement device that improves his accuracy and allows him to see past the magic in the world for the way things really are.

    His gun is a self-modified magic flintlock with three modes of fire. One fires the projectile but does not bestow it with any magic properties, another gives the projectile incredible piercing power to rip through layers upon layers of protection, and the last mode gives the projectile a heavy dose of magic that causes a tremendous explosion upon impact. The gun requires a heavy metal ball for ammunition, and can hold up to three bullets, with two in the handle and one in the firing chamber. To load a new shot, he must swing the gun around so that the bullet falls into the chamber, then snap it into place so that it locks into the ready position.

    Butler B. Butler



    Alias: None
    Gender: Male
    Race: Cat-boy/Angel
    Age: 34 (60 human equivalent)
    Alignment: Lawful Sexy
    Class: Butler

    Description: Catboy who only wears shorts and a mithril collar. Has blue/gray hair and fur. Is physically fit from exercise.

    Personality: A friendly, if a bit lustful, catboy who is polite to a fault and likes everyone. Except mean people who like to eat people. Those aren't as fun. Dumb as a rock though. And that's insulting to rocks.

    Equipment: Several pairs of shorts, a mithril collar, and various cleaning supplies. Also has Decker's feather cloak, representing his marriage to her.

    Abilities: He's good at being a butler. A World Class Kisser capable of breaking curses with a wet one. Also an excellent cook. Not really very useful in a fight, though is fairly strong from working out and has feline agility going for him. Has vaguely defined angelic protection against extreme evil, such as possession.

    Backstory: Born and raised on Felina where he was "imparted" with their special brand of doing things. Which strongly resembles a line close to slave labor. But he was happy with it and never knew better. So grew up a butler, butlered for a few people offscreen before arriving in ACRO where he joined GLoG. He married Decker, died, and then came back to balance the see-saw.

    Miscellaneous: Currently butlers for Watchtower, though unofficially cleans the AuxCave when Magtok isn't looking.
    Also has fangirls.

    Fangirls: NPCs created by Happyturtle. They tend to follow Butler around and do creepy obsessive fangirl things, sometimes to his liking, sometimes to his chagrin. Anyone can play Butler's fangirls at any time.

    Power Rating: B/Scalable

    Description: He is Caucasian, is skin a tad pale. He is bald. He is muscular to the degree of... say... your average fighter.

    He can partially or fully transform into an 8-10 foot, muscular demonic figure. Long horns (horn, one got chopped off) grey-white carapace skin, large black hole in his chest, long claws, big hooves for feet, massive fleshy wings.

    The sclera (whites) of Prae's eyes are now as black as the pupils, the irises a vibrant gold. This makes him look odd.

    Personality: Old habits make Praetorious swift to violence. So much as spit at his feet, the ancient might put you through a wall. He's trying to manage it, but man, the dude could use a little help.

    He has an exploratory, curious personality, though he tries to hide it beneath a layer of calm and cool passiveness. As above, this layer often disentegrates quickly when he is angered. He is deathly afraid of Edo Edi Essum and anything relating to the void.

    Prae's been a bit of a hermit of late, so he's not very outgoing. He prefers quiet, wide-open spaces where he can think. It's best not to bother him when he's thinking.

    He is a man seeking answers. The ancient has questions about everything, life, the universe, philosophy, and will do anything to learn more.

    He is, quite frankly, disgusted at his warped form. Though he is sometimes forced to use it's power, or rage brings him to it, he doesn't particularly like the beast.

    And that's all for now. Character development, away!

    Equipment: Naught but the clothes on his back, some personal affairs, and perhaps food. He isn't staying anyplace right now, and his weapon was lost long ago.

    Abilities:

    -A degree of superhuman strength, speed, and durability.
    -Disintegration blasts. He can make things asplode by sending pulses towards them.
    -Vast knowledge of the Objects and all their related subjects, among other things.
    -Maybe some magical powers. Nothing that makes him an epic mage, just stuff to help with rituals, the occasional fight...
    -Other stuff I might've forgotten. Oh, like his Aura of Fear. And, when enraged, Aura of Destruction. Starts decaying things nearby.

    Weaknesses:

    -Vulnerability to holy weapons, holy energy, holy anything.
    -Good-aligned and magic weapons to far better than ballistics or conventional firearms. But plasma, I suppose, works also.
    -The Objects. They hate him with a gusto. Used against him, they may be instantly lethal, or at least capable of piercing his armor as though it were tissue paper. And, of course, extra pain and damage beyond.
    -Passiveness makes him weak. If you can hit him before he becomes angry, then the fight may go far quicker.

    Backstory:

    The whole thing can be found here, though as a summary:

    Spoiler
    Show
    -He was an ancient Seeker, one of the most powerful, gradually losing his humanity. He had a lovely wife Angela.
    -Edo Edi Essum (the Devourer, cosmic horror, etc.) wipes out his civilization, along with his wife.
    -He goes batsh*t insane, trying to gather as many Objects as possible to take down Essum and get his wife back. He kills some important characters, including the original Balance of his part of the Multiverse.
    -He fights Legion for the first 2000 Objects, gets wrecked, and for his failure in this ultimate battle, is cursed. All the Objects hate him forever, and he is tossed into the Void between worlds for eternity.
    -Ages pass. He eventually grows to understand the 'nothing' of the Void and builds himself a new body.
    -He travels the human world, seeking to gather power and allies and destroy Legion. Having forgotten long ago about Edo's acts, he allies with the Eater and goes after Legion.
    -Due to the interference of some key players who want Legion to stay around, Edo loses most of his corporeal form (and corporeal abilities) and Praetorious (then Infectos) is reduced to human form.
    -Edo makes Praetorious his vessel.
    -They destroy half the regular Earth with Edo's vast legions now unleashed.
    -Praetorious/Edo goes after the new Balance, this Balance being the one thing standing in his way.
    -Prae's old personality, having started to return after Edo's possession of his body, performs a massive Face Heel Turn. Prae escapes his control, Edo is sentenced to a prison beyond time or somesuch, and that's how it ends folks.
    -Prae jumps off the Tower where he fought Balance, falling between worlds and pretty much sleeping dead for millenia. He needs answers, has crimes to pay for.
    -In this continuity, at least, he ends up in the Nexus. Go figure.

    Kento Akota

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Humanish

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

    Class/Profession: Detective

    Power Rating: Great Hero/C
    Description:

    Personality: Kento is best described as "The Don Quixote of Film Noir". He thinks of himself as the best detective ever, but the few times he's solved cases is always directly based on dumb luck (which he is extremely good at) or by the intervention of others. He will also launch into long-winded monologues for no reason. Reports have been made that color seems to fade away during these, but it appears to be different for every individual. Kento is extremely hot-headed and he speaks like Lucas Lee from the movie version of Scott Pilgrim.

    Equipment: A variety of stereotypical detective gear,
    his coat, which appears to be indestructable given the situations he finds himself in,
    and two bizarre axes. They seem to be magical, due to the fact that they change shape and size every time he draws them from hammerspace. Their abilities change with the forms

    Abilities: Kento is extremely capable in a fight, nearing Video-game-protagonist levels. This stems from his extraordinary strength and speed. He also appears to be incapable of wielding the simplest magic.

    Thierry Z. Artelo

    Alias: Known (begrudgingly) as Mr. Artelo to most.

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 46

    Alignment: Bumbling pretensions towards lawful evil.

    Class/Profession: Assassin & general criminal on paper. In reality, more like an aristocrat.

    Power Rating: 2-3 (only on account of his ability and limited usefulness with a knife)

    Description: A relatively unremarkable-looking man of average height, with short grey hair, grey eyes, and surprisingly smooth, pale skin for his age. Almost always smiling. Wears a sharp, tailored black pinstripe suit and shiny shoes – is rarely seen wearing anything other than a suit. Speaks in purple, because he thinks it makes him look 'regal' and 'mysterious'.

    Personality: Put simply, Thierry is not the smartest man in the world. For a man who was, back on his original world, the boss of an organised crime syndicate, his naivety and general incompetence at almost everything is astonishing. Thierry's own private little universe consists of him at the centre, and everything else revolving around him, doing what he says – and if it doesn't, it damn well should; his 10-year survival at the head of the Artelo family of criminals has left him with an enormous ego. He's convinced himself he's a criminal mastermind and evil genius, when he isn't a real criminal, he's a long way from being a genius, and his ‘evil’ credentials rest solely on a dubious claim that he once killed a man 20 years ago.

    Equipment: A snappy, if slightly shabby, pinstripe suit, a small handgun in his jacket pocket with limited ammo, and a small knife in his shoe. In his pocket, some small change and a wallet with far too many maxed-out credit cards.

    Abilities: Thierry inherited only one of the several abilities passed down through the Artelo bloodline (supposedly through demon blood) – an ability to change into a moving cloud of smoke at will for up to half an hour at a time, which has proved a useful escape tool more than once (it can only be used once every day, and once every night). Unfortunately, the transformation does not affect his clothes, which has led to a few awkward moments when he returns to his original form. Thierry is reasonably skilled with a knife, and possesses a gun, although he is a terrible shot.

    Backstory: Born into a wealthy criminal dynasty rife with patricide, fratricide, homicide and just about every other “-cide” you can think of, a character such as Thierry rising to the head of the family and staying there for any length of time seems almost unthinkable. So, when Thierry became head of the ‘family’ after several uncles and his three elder brothers were all killed within the space of several months, few expected Thierry to last more than a few weeks at most. In fact, he would remain head of the family for 10 years. How? One simple trait – Thierry has a remarkable knack for not getting killed. At one point, attempts on Thierry's life were running at a rate of three or four a week, yet somehow – through assassins' mistakes, Thierry shapeshifting into smoke, or more often than not just dumb luck – he managed to live through all of them. Thierry running through the house naked screaming about an assassin in his water closet became a fortnightly occurrence. When he wasn't busy narrowly avoiding death, Thierry was either wasting his family's fortune on illegal liquor, tailored suits and gambling, or failing to come up with any coherent criminal schemes whatsoever. After 10 years of the Artelo organised crime family organising no crime at all, even the previously-loyal bodyguards had had enough. The family had fallen into disrepute and had lost most of their money. The entire household conspired in one gigantic plot to finally kill Thierry and his son, Efrim. However, moments before they were about to be killed, they were both transported to the Nexus. This has only served to reinforce Thierry's view that his continued survival is proof that God has some kind of ‘special plan’ for him.

    Efrim Artelo

    Alias: n/a

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 17

    Alignment: Leans towards good, and flickers between Chaotic Good and Chaotic Neutral.

    Class/Profession: Closest to Assassin, but not evil.

    Power Rating: 6. May vary.

    Description: Longish, unkempt, black hair and brown eyes. Shares his father's unremarkable facial features, except they're slightly more defined, and his nose is sharp. A bit small and skinny for his age. He wears a red jacket with a floral design and a high collar, a black shirt underneath it, black trousers and smart black shoes.

    Personality: Can behave fairly typically for an angsty teenager, although he's not quite as “YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ME!” as he used to be. He decided to rebel against his family's rich criminal heritage by attempting to become a good character, and now makes occasional efforts to be helpful to other people. His father Thierry is convinced that the ‘evil in his bloodline’ will win out, and that this is just a phase; it has, however, been a phase that's lasted several years. He's actually an open, curious and quite likable person, when he's not being a teenager.

    Equipment: Two long knives in his belt, and a reinforced titanium plate under his jacket on his right forearm that he can use to block (or hit) things.

    Abilities: Efrim is a skilled fighter with his knives, having received years of training since he was young. His main advantage in combat is his amazing speed and agility, combined with extremely quick reflexes. He is also capable of fighting with some skill with large or small swords, throwing stars or knives and with his bare hands. He is passable with guns, although he doesn't carry any. He inherited several abilities from his Artelo blood. He is able to burst into a cloud of smoke once a day and once a night, similarly to his father; he can hold off the effects of gravity for 4-5 seconds at a time, though it takes effort and concentration; sometimes disappears when in shadow (although this ability is inconsistent, and has a habit of failing quite often); and an immunity to some less potent poisons and potions.

    Backstory: Efrim is the son of Thierry. At age 7, he was the only survivor of a huge explosion that destroyed almost a whole wing of the Artelos’ mansion, which many suspected to be an assassination attempt gone wrong. In a rare moment of lucidity, Thierry realised that his son would be a target for assassins too, and that he should be able to protect himself. To this end, he had Efrim trained in several combat disciplines from then on – and he turned out to be an extremely talented fighter. However, he refuses to use his talents for anything he considers ‘evil’. Was transported to Nexus with Thierry moments before he was about to be killed.

    Pico Kurazume
    Alias: Pretty much every insult word in several languages, for starters.
    Gender: Male.
    Race: Human...for now.
    Age: 37, looks 25 or so.
    Alignment: Pretty solidly Chaotic Evil.
    Profession: Crimelord, Bad***, Seeker.
    Power Rating: C-C+...for now.

    Description:

    Pale and slightly lithe. About 6' tall. Younger looking than he should be. Black, medium length hair in a wild, wind-tossed manner that keeps out of his face. Straight but untrimmed sideburns reaching a bit past his earlobes. Shocking light blue eyes. Somewhat bent posture. Generally looks like he doesn't give a crap at any given time.


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    He does what he wants, when he wants, where he wants, how he wants, and up yours if you don’t like it sums him up pretty well. He is pretty much an ***hole to almost everybody, that is when he feels like being one. It takes a bit to earn his respect. His attitudes and actions are often mercurial.


    Equipment:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Right now, a veritable armory of various weapons. Think the endgame of games like Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row 2. All of which is stored in hammerspace. He also has a bullet-proof vest.

    A fancy, expensive, revved up sports car to be defined later. Pretty much going to be completely loaded with cash somehow.


    Abillities:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Well, murdering crap for one...

    Seems to have the uncanny ability to start up (and operate efficiently) any vehicle he enters, gets on, or otherwise prepares to drive, no matter the situation. He could walk up to a completely dormant helicopter, get in, and start it up and fly away like nothing's up. Also, the vehicles never seem to run out of gas.

    Pico is in peak physical condition, with some extra perks. He seems to be able to survive some rather ridiculous circumstances, such as calmly walking away from an explosion, and surviving dropping from the top of a building by tucking and rolling when reaching the floor.

    Basically, think of any GTA game ever, and you have a pretty good idea of what he's capable of.


    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Came from a family said to have been descended from a fallen angel. Ironically, this family was a bit of a crime family. Long story short, Pico climbed his way up the crime ladder until he sat highest on the hog, claiming entire cities by himself.

    Eventually, he got tired of just being a crimelord of crimelords, and started searching for something...else. He heard rumors of things simply called Objects, artifacts of great power that can only be acquired through harrowing, maddening trials. He started searching for them when one day, he had a strange dream of another world. So, he suited up the best he could (which is pretty well), got into a sports car loaded up with cash and drove into a building as fast as he could. Just before he hit the building, however, a portal in the shape of jaws opened up, swallowing Pico along with the car, and taking him to the Nexus.


    Misc.: Ideally, he'll change rather dramatically in the future. Of course, this is him before he truly becomes a Seeker.

    Vincent



    Alias: The Main Character
    Gender: Male
    Race: Elf
    Age: 68 (13)
    Class: Chosen Warrior

    Description: He's an elf kid parody of RPGs. If you take Cloud, make him shorter, give him more muscles, make his ears pointier, make his hair crazier and twice the size of his head, and give him clothes that makes Tidus look away in embarrassment and you have Vincent.

    Personality: Operates and acts as if he's the Main Character of an RPG video game. Given his abilities and the strange way the world warps around them, he might not be wrong. However, it tends to leave him rather arrogant and hot-headed and often rubs people the wrong way.

    Equipment: He has a signature sword which is wider, taller, and heavier than he is. Yet he still manages to wield it in one hand seemingly effortlessly. Right now it's a magic platinum version that can cut through metals. Has some light Chain Mail Platinum Magic Armor which he never learned what it does other than provide better protection. He has an amulet of Fire Resistance 15%. Perhaps his most valuable piece of equipment other than his sword is a Bonewraith Skull which adds magic power damage to his attacks and a 10% chance to lower the opponents magic stat by 1. Has an inventory which carries a variety of useful items.

    Abilities: Anything you could pull off in a video game is something Vincent can likely do. Pause the game to pull up the map screen? Check. Pick something up just by walking over it? Check. Cause fights to go into a turn based battle system? Check. Fully recover from any injury by flipping the lights on and off? Check. His reality warping powers are strong, though they follow a prescribed ruleset. If it's not a video game cliche, it ain't happening.

    Backstory: His parents were killed in the apocalypse. He was put in an orphanage until a plague hit. He was rescued by Reinholdt at that point and moved to the Glass Citadel. There he survived an attack by Lex's Flaming Dobermans. Soon Reinholdt initiated his attack on Magtok. The Citadel was caught in the blast of the MagCave explosion and shattered on the ground, killing every other orphan, leaving him the last survivor. Raven found him and took him to NO. There he was named and given a text color as well as PC status.

    Miscellaneous: Caroline is his second party member and primary love interest. Darth Cuddlepie is his third party member. It is probable that there will be more in the future.

One of you of course will cackle madly, while the other will appear to be distraught by your own actions, but feel your hands are tied. Later the latter will either die trying to redeem themselves or become a playable character to do so, while the former becomes a major boss who gets his just desserts."

    Default Re: Nexus Character Directory

    Nadas Ghuand Xar'Cha


    Alias: None.
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Draegloth
    Age: 22
    Class/Profession: Scholar/Wizard

    Description: Looks very much like a drow on the surface. He almost always wears long flowing crimson robes that cover most of his body and hides the true him underneath. His torso is in fact all red and very much demonic looking, with two small stubs poking out of his back where wings would go. His black eyes have a small tint of red in them, though the itty bitty spectacles he wears generally distracts from that point he's found. He normally has purple hair, but has since dyed it black.

    Personality: Bombastic with his speech, he really does try to get along with others, though is a bit of a natural recluse. Has an almost fanatical obsession with books and research. He's not afraid to get his hands dirty when someone needs his help, though how much help he can offer is generally questionable at best.

    Equipment: Books. Books. And then some more books. Has a few magical reagents he uses for spells too.

    Abilities: Generally a weak powered wizard. However, he can tap into his demonic blood to pull off some incredible feats of casting. Generally this results in him looking more demonic though, generally making him more red, his eyes glowy, and wings to grow. While the effects largely subside over time, a little piece remains permanent each time, slowly transforming him to a full-fledged demon. He fears it may even effect his personality given enough opportunity, if it has not already. As such, he is incredibly loathe to use these abilities unless it seems absolutely necessary. He studies magic primarily in hopes that he can learn enough tap magic like a normal wizard does so that he never has to rely on his demon blood, though his training in such area is far from complete.

    Backstory: After the unholy union of Raril and Calublufiok/Irene, Twins were born. Far from identical, Nadas was hidden away until after Calublufiok's apparent destruction at which point he was given to Raril along with Ilpholin. Raril transferred them to Matron Danube to protect them from the Nexus' vengeance and Nadas has since grown up in Menzoberranzan. The place never particularly suited his disposition, so using leverage he found over Ilpholin, he managed to escape and has since arrived at GLoG.

    Miscellaneous: Has a minor crush on Charity, but one would be hard pressed to get him to reveal it, especially since she's with Edijar. Son of Raril and Calublufiok.

    Ilpholin Ghuanaer Xar'Cha



    Alias: None.
    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Nymph with very small traces of draegloth
    Age: 22
    Class/Profession: Fighter

    Description: A tremendously beautiful and sexualized nymph, the only indication of anything but fey in her background is her purple hair. She wears a rather tight catsuit that reveals too much, while somewhat resembling leather armor. Always has a whip strapped to her back when not in use. Has numerous scars all over her body from the years spent underground with the Drow, but she goes to great lengths every day to cover them up with make-up. Is particularly fond of ballet and ballroom dancing.

    Personality: A mercurial and sadistic woman, she yearns for acceptance, yet almost inevitably drives it away with her personality and cruelty. She's not afraid to use sex to get what she wants, though loathes herself for it. Has been fairly well indoctrinated to the Drow school of thought up to and including looking down on men in general. Will very much beat anyone senseless who dares claim she's not Drow. A conniving woman who often defeats her own plans by being childish, she's a great deal more clever than she acts, when emotions don't get the best of her.

    Equipment: A whip which holds a variety of useful abilities, including poison, retracting blade blender, and electricity similar to that guy in Iron Man 2.

    Abilities: Has a fair number of nymph related powers, including pheromones, blinding beauty, and love related magic. She's trained herself practically non-stop in addition to the training she received, so as to survive. As a result, she's an incredibly agile and strong fighter, capable of taking down many an opponent, something she's tried to use to gain respect in the Drow ranks.

    Changes:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Yeah. Not a nymph anymore. Rather a full on drow turned full on pure demon. This means-

    • Taller. 5' 8".
    • Dark skin.
    • Stepping into shadows makes her literally invisible.
    • No nymph abilities at all including pheromones, blinding beauty, healing animals, etc. Effects already there do not change.
    • She has a tail that is particularly sensitive. It's prehensile and has a spade like tip at the end, exactly like those of demons and devils.
    • She has horns that curl like a ram's horns, though are quite a bit smaller and purely aesthetic.
    • Her eyes are now red and quite hypnotic, enticing the viewer to love and adore her.
    • Her skin 'sweats' Liquid Bliss. It is a substance that when absorbed through the skin, creates a feeling of great pleasure in the subject. Not nearly as potent as the infamous Liquid Agony, but overdosing over long periods of time behind the curtain is still possible. It can be addicting.
    • She can change her mouth into that more like a spider's at a moment's notice, making herself capable of biting a victim and infecting them with demonic essence, turning them into Ilpholinites.


    Ilpholinites:
    Higher demons, just below the pure demon that Ilpholin is. They frequently take on one or two of her aspects, but their own mutation is still unique and follows the cuthun demon rules. They tend to be more loyal to her, though this depends on individual situations (being pounced upon and bitten against one's will usually does not encourage loyalty, unlike being infected during willing curtains).


    Backstory: After the unholy union of Raril and Calublufiok/Irene, Twins were born. Far from identical, Ilpholin was hidden away until after Calublufiok's apparent destruction at which point he was given to Raril along with Ilpholin. Raril transferred them to Matron Danube to protect them from the Nexus' vengeance and Ilpholin has since grown up in Menzoberranzan. The place was far harsher to Ilpholin than it was Nadas due to her fair skin, and she had to fight for her life almost everyday. She remained loyal to Danube, though only so long as it furthered her own dreams of power and acceptance.

    Miscellaneous: Daughter of Raril and Calublufiok. Loves KR in an obsessed stalker sort of way. Has a pet spider named Mister Squiggles which is her best friend.

    LoVoltage, AKA: Emmanuel Freemont

    Alias: LoVoltage. No one calls him by his given name, and no one but his mother knows it.
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Cyber enhanced human
    Age: 26
    Alignment: CN
    Class/Profession: 'merchant' and amateur net runner.
    Power Rating: 3/C Rank
    Description: Ginger. Pure and simple. He's rather brawny though. Not extremely bulky, but a well defined musculature. He has short, extremely curly ginger hair and many freckles.

    His is usually seen in combat armor.
    Personality:
    Equipment: Crumpled pack of Yeheyuan filters
    P90 Tactical SMG (Full clip of armor piercing rounds) with under barrel grenade launcher (empty)
    • 1 spare clip

    9mm 12 round pistol
    • 3 spare clips

    Medium Combat Vest (has taken minor damage, shows signs of wear)

    The armor is matte black roughened to absorb as much light as possible. It covers his entire body, though there are clearly spaces between the pads and protective surfaces on his legs and arms. The chest piece is the heaviest section, bearing a resemblance in appearance to SWAT vests, though in construction to Halo Spartan armor. The carbon nanotuble weaving is durable and stops slashing weapons quickly, the gel layer beneath dissipates blunt force over his entire front and to a lesser extent to his back.
    Face mask with breath filter (Usually retracted to show his face and preserve the filters. For imagery purposes: It covers the whole head, but retracts the face concealing portion via a seam right down the middle, each part drifting down slightly and out. )

    Backstory: He spent several years trying to drum up enough cred to run with the big boys, but the hype never really took. Instead, he cut his losses and made his way as a middle rung enforcer and a small time dealer. Honest work. Relatively. He dealt mostly in things that shouldn't be illegal in his mind. Software, synthetic tissues produced without permits. That sort of thing. Occasionally counterfeit hardware, but that was rare. Most people who wanted high end hardware could either tell an inferior product, or didn't care where it came from.

    M
    Pronounced "Ehm"

    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Murimus, depowered descendent of Musteval ancestors, largely resembling halfling-sized bipedal talking mice.
    Age: 34 (Human Equivalent: 34, Acts like: 12 Average life expectancy: Unknown)
    Alignment:Chaotic Coward...Er... Cowardly Good...Goodly Afraid.
    Class/Profession: M collects, creates, and distrubutes magical toys and candies. In effect, an artificer who isn't a big fan of fighting.
    Power Rating: M is knowledgeable in a range of alchemical and mechamagical fields, but lacks any power himself beyond what is necessary for or granted by his creations. Civilian with Adventurous tendencies? 3 or 4ish.
    Description: M stands about 3 feet high and is a bit plump from years of tasting his own candies. He has stark white fur with black eyes and a pink nose/inner ears. He is missing a small bit from the top of his right ear, a scar from an unfortunate incident in Trogg's long ago. (See also Avatar Image. Any changes to M's appearence will show up there.)
    Equipment: Toys toys toys. M carries with him a wide variety of practical and silly magical items from small toy soldiers that will fight each other, to a confetti bomb designed as a distraction/conversation starter.

    He also regularly carries many bags of candy which can have a wide variety of effects ranging from healing to hallucinogenic, if you can make a potion for it, he can make a candy of it. Except invisiblity. He has been working on invisibility candy for quite some time, but finds it renders him invisible but not his clothing and gear. If you are ever in a room with an invisible M either congratulate him on solving the puzzle, or worry that he may be naked.

    His most powerful magical item is his always-present red cloak. Unlike the rest of his wardrobe it is a bit old looking and dulled, but it conceals a powerful spell. The whole of the cloak is a portable gateway to a small pocket dimension of M's own design (With the spells provided by a very gracious and powerful sorcerer some time ago). He uses it to carry his wares and trinkets, as well as a way to get out of a bad situation.

    Abilities: M is a craftsman. He has very few magical abilities, having merely picked up a cantrip here and there in his travels. He fails to exceed at magic because he studies it like a science, and not like an art, thus his perception of it is often limited. His toys and magical items, however, are works of art, meticulously crafted by loving hands.

    Backstory: Raised on a simple farm, M was the 13th child of 26th, born in the 4th of 8 litters. Not happy with being an amazingly middle child, and not satisfied with farm life, he ran away from home at a young age. Run away may be the wrong term. He had a very overactive imagination that lead him to stray far far from home, and one day simply forgot to return. In a big city not far from home he discovered a wonder he had never known on the farm: toys and candy! When you have 26 children you can't really afford those luxuries. M apprenticed himself to a kindly old toyman and learned everything he could. He would eventually earn his small fortune with his outlandish creations born of his flighty imagination and returned home to share it with his lost family. Some time in his late twenties he acquired a strange map that spoke of a long lost toy factory that once churned out toys and candy of a legendary nature. He ventured out to try and find it, and eventually stumbled across The Town in the Nexus, which he decided to use as his base of operations to find his factory.

    Miscellaneous: I used M as my avatar in The Town back when it was The Town and there were llamas and avatars of death running around being silly. His profile seems to have been lost to time, so I have reposted him from memory.

    Xel'Kath The Archon
    Race: Chrysslid
    Age: 751,297 years
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Power Level: 6
    Description: It's body is shaped like an arrowhead, with a hood-like indent at the top where three yellow-orange eyes glow in a triangle formation, and under that is a lobster-like mouth. Its body is covered in black chitian, it lacks any limbs whatsoever, instead using magic to float and manipulate the physical world. Its most prominent feature are hundreds of crystals on its back, some large, others small, which absorb and store magical energy.
    Abilities: It uses magic absorbed and stored in its back crystals for a variety of purposes. Most of the time the power is used for enviornmental manipulation, however it can channel the power to do anything from energy blasts, to shields, to even summon magic.
    Background:
    Hails from the planet Chrysslid, a rogue world so magically unstable it tore itself into the ethereal plane, and usually tears a new hole back into the material should there be a planet with large magical energy in the same planar area. It is an Archon, descended from the race that first inhabited Chrysslid. If an Archon has appeared on a world, then that means that Chrysslid will eventually emerge near that world; its job is to harvest enough magical energy so that Chrysslid can be sent back to the ethereal plane. Generally is ethically flexible, doing anything to ensure enough is collected, but it is all for good reason, for if Chrysslid remains near a world for an extended period, that world will be affected and become less and less stable before becoming twisted much like Chrysslid (it's happened several times before).
    Xel'Kath is a much gentler Archon than some of its fellows, for example, trying to ensure a magically tuned subject lives after the proccess of extraction; or ensuring that the undesirables of society are used when convesion into hybrids for defense and harvesting.

    gunther the troll


    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Troll. Not a DnD Troll though

    Age: Doesn't remember

    Alignment: Chaotic Stoooopid

    Class/Profession: Troll

    Power Rating: C - B

    Description: Gunther is big. At a stretch, by crouching and sucking his belly in, he can fit through an ordinary door Logically, he can't be more than 9 feet tall - however, he seems ... bigger somehow. He fills space in a room, and makes the others in it feel cramped. His skin is grey and looks rough and craggy, with patches of course hair like moss. His head hair is long, scraggly, and an organic green brown. It may or may not have things living in it. His eyes are black, and he has a jutting chin with long, thick jutting fangs of a yellowy brown colour. He has big, handlebar horns of the same colour. His nose is large and flat, like something punched it very hard. He has disproportionally large fists and feet. He wears a faded pair of patchwork trousers.

    Equipment: a sack, with 'foods an stuff' in.

    Abilities: So very very strong. Seriously. Very strong. His punches could shake mountains. He can regenerate anything, although fire gives him a bit of trouble. Drinking troll blood temporarily conveys this ability to the drinker. When sitting or standing still outside, he somehow blends in. People have ended up standing on his head looking around for him. This is a bad idea, as he can and will consume anything with no adverse effects. Literally anything. Rotten meat. Poison. Grenades. Uranium. He is lethargic in the sun.

    Backstory: W.I.P.

    Miscellaneous: Strong and basically unkillable, but stupid and slow. talks like dis in big letters wiv no caps and little fiddly punkt ... punter ... dots and stuff
