Figured I may as well post what my ideas where for Drake instead of letting them get lost in the void of my mind. Some of these things may still come to pass if I am lucky. Anyway.
Drake wasn't a character I ever planned to win with. Like that one guy-who-I-am-forgetting-the-name-of-but-im-too-lazy-to-go-back-and-look said, he was the character to be turned around from the darkness. Truthfully I hadn't planned on it in the beginning, but after he said that the ideas started flowing. Originally I was just going to see where he went, but that changed quickly enough.
There were three ways I figured that Drake might be returned to his old self. The first two involved characters that are no longer active. Jace and that little girl character who isn't linked on the first page of the OOC were the first two. Jace obviously was his friend before the disaster and posed the best chance of restoring him. The little girl would have reminded him of his sisters, and he would have never, ever attacked her. She might not have changed him, but he would not kill her. Yes even if it meant losing the game. The third way that could
potentially maybe still be viable (he has still lost, don't get worked up) is that he meets someone who's ideals have a real impact on him.
Now to introduce what Drake has become:
Meet Nihlus (Nigh-lus)
The image above is essentially what he looks like now. Mainly his head. The shadowy substance the he "bleeds" now composes most of his upper head. His eyes are violet orbs, no trace of any human eye underneath. Despite this he still has a full range of facial expressions. His body remains mostly the same from when he was Drake, but he almost always has tentacles coming out of somewhere. He can speak, but not all that coherently. More of a talks...like...this...character. What he "is" now is all of Drake's rage, hate, and sorrow
. Keyword there. That is where the influence is going to be. If something can trigger that sadness, make it overwhelm the rage and hate for a moment, perhaps he can have a redeeming moment. But he is crazy now, and he is not aware as Drake anymore.
Back to Drake's redemption. You got a preview of what it could have looked like in his "death". Essentially the power would function in the same way, it just would have been a visual change. It was also an idea I had for his original power, but then i made him evil. As of right now I am rooting for Dean. Which is a little problematic because I am unsure if a GM's character can win? If not, then i'm bugga'd anyway.
Any questions or concerns, feel free to speak up. I'm not expecting any, just wanted to get this out of my head because I have throughly enjoyed this RP XD
