_____________________________________________________________

I. The Plot:

A small guild of humble beginnings, Infinite Serenade quickly became one of the top guilds within Enrein, lauded all over the land for its powerful patrons and status as one of the nation's most profitable guilds. Such status was not without its flaws however, and the more fame the guild celebrated, the more envious those outside of the spotlight became. One specific party even went so far as to attack Infinite Serenade without so much as a warning, taking advantage of the knowledge that the guild's master (and most powerful member) had gone missing days earlier.

The battle didn't last long. Infinite Serenade was completely and utterly defeated in a flash. Sure, the guild had its share of powerful players, but they were no match for the seemingly endless waves of envious assailants. Their spirits broken by the harrowing defeat, the guild’s members all but disbanded, save for two, Amaryll Iladia and Ciara McClellan. Rather than go their separate ways like the others before them, the two stayed at the guild in hopes of restoring their guild to its former glory. Acting as Infinite Serenade’s interim guild masters, the two have started efforts to repopulate the guild, though there hasn’t been much headway…
_____________________________________________________________

II. The Setting:

Infinite Serenade’s Headquarters- A large wooden structure that is worn with both time and weathering… and the occasional fight, yet it still has managed to hold a homey feeling that welcomes even the most cold-hearted individuals. This kindly old building has the look of being loved and well-taken care of despite its age and wear. It’s worn edges form runners tapping the edge while on their trail has left the left corner indented slightly. With a view of the beautiful Tor Mountains, that even the hustle and bustle of Reis City can’t hide, the Infinite Serenade Guild has quite the location. In Reis City, it’s told that if you want anything, you can find it there, and so far, nobody’s been able to say that they haven’t left more than satisfied.

Once inside, you’ll come across a welcome desk and a classic fireplace to the right with an old fashioned bar and a place for meeting. At the back of the meeting room, in between the cafeteria and the bar, there’s bathroom stalls for men and women. To the immediate left of the welcome desk is a wooden staircase that leads to the second and third floors. To the left of the stairs in the front-left side of the first floor is the med bay for all those who are injured or need rehabilitation. Behind the med bay is the cafeteria and a kitchen for those talented with devouring food or preparing it. On the back wall of the cafeteria is the bulletin board, where all jobs of all levels except for S class are posted for all to see.

The second floor staircase leads to the hallway that leads you to the men’s and women’s dorms (an option for any guild member) with restrooms in each, and the third leads to the guild master’s office. Outside, behind the guild’s kitchen, is the training area. There’s a track, and an overly large weight-lifting area and basically everything that you would consider to be training equipment.
_____________________________________________________________

Enrein- A larger nation made up of a cornucopia of both peoples and ecozones, Enrein is a relatively peaceful nation, though the royal family has been known to scuffle with other nations (and rebellious towns) once in a great while. Enrein has been considered one of the more powerful countries around just by the sheer concentration of skilled fire mages that frequent its capital, Aria. Many cities and towns within Enrein favor Victorian-era architecture. (Enrein is the current setting for the RP.)

Map: http://img718.imageshack.us/f/enrein.jpg/

Aria- A walled, multi-tiered city full of white buildings and fire mages said to be a near- impenetrable fortress. The royal family of Enrein, the House of Lunare, dwells here. (Not to mention a few dozen nobles and quite a bit of common folk.)

Aria Minor- Aria's only link to the rest of the nation, Aria Minor is more a cable car service to and from the capital city than an actual town, sending car after car over the chasm that is home to Lake Seral.

Elendere- Not much information is known about this town. The last person to describe it referred to Elendere as 'a ghost town nestled within a barren wasteland'. And that was over 100 years ago. Most Enreni are content to just ignore the existence of the town and even the island that it's situated on.

Erevin- Small farming town. Most of Enrein's produce comes from this area.

Erisal- A small island town known for it's sororal coven of water mages. And excellent alcohol. Those of Erisal have great animosity towards the current royal family due to heavy losses during a recent rebellion sparked by the town.

Port Arante- Small fishing port. The majority of the nation's seafood comes from this town.

Port Lia- Enrein's main port. Most sea freight is routed through here.

Teren- Known as a training mecca for plant mages due to its location next to a forest and a swamp (not to mention being on the plains), Teren is an excellent place to take in the greener wonders of nature and maybe pick up a few potions.

Reis- A city with a sprinkling of everything, and home to the guild Infinite Serenade. (This is where the first part of the RP takes place.)

Reylan- An exclusive vacation spot for nobles filled with mansions, expensive restaurants, and high-end shops. The non-nobility that work there call Reylan home as well, though their homes are somewhat... segregated from the buildings the nobles frequent.

Mount Torae- Enrein's tallest mountain. Rumored to be home to a family of dragons.

Irale- A desert nation to the west of Enrein. The Iralian people are generally neutral towards those from Enrein, though they can become hostile at a moment's notice.

Arelis- A nation of multiple biomes to the southwest of Enrein. Currently allied with the Enreini due to favorable relations with the House of Lunare.
Too good for you.

III. Rules and Considerations:

- Try to keep things roughly PG-13.

- Please use location markers. It’s easier to keep track of characters this way.

- Player characters are intended to start at a relatively low power level and grow with the game.

- Your character's importance in the story will be directly related to its player's participation. The more you participate, the more important your character will be.

- Posts just need to have an adequate amount of text akin to their importance. For example, if your character can't do anything but comment, then comment, describe their physical behavior, maybe their thoughts, and that's it. I’d rather not have any one-liners if I can help it.

- Be sure to mention any edits to a RP post in the OOC, and be specific about what you changed. This’ll save time and confusion.
_____________________________________________________________

IV. Miscellaneous:

Just in case.
_____________________________________________________________

V. Character Sheet Template:

-Name: (Pretty self-explanatory.)

-Gender: (Again, self-explanatory.)

-Age: (All characters are intended to be human, so make it reasonable.)

-Appearance: (Describe what your character looks like. His/her hairstyle, clothing, jewelry, unique physical characteristics, etc. Also mention the location/ intended location of the guild mark tattoo (link minus the writing and with more solid lining). A picture can be submitted, but unless the [color] picture in question is that of the character on the sheet it can only serve as a helpful visualization. The typed appearance will still be expected from those whose pictures do not meet the mentioned criteria.)

-Personality: (What your character likes/dislikes, how he/she reacts to certain situations, etc. List hobbies here.)

-Abilities: (What fighting style(s) or magic(s) you would like your character to use.)

-Weapons/Equipment: (List anything here that your character relies on as an armament or tool of sorts. Enrein‘s level of technology is akin to what would be considered ‘early steampunk‘.)

-Profession/Career: (Whatever sort of service(s) your character performs on a constant basis to occupy his time, generally for spending money. Non-profit jobs work as well. If your character doesn‘t have one, say so.)

-Brief History: (Just a few paragraphs highlighting important events in your character's life. This part is optional for the GMs due to story related reasons.)

-Character Theme: (A song or musical track that represents your character. This is not a requirement. It's just an optional bit of fun.)
Too good for you.

Basic Information
-Name: Harvey Roots
-Gender: Male
-Age: 23
-Appearance: Image

Harvey's hair is a shining red color, mid length, and somewhat stringy. Though he tries to avoid the stereotypical "emo" look, Harvey can't always keep his hair from falling in front of his eyes. When it's not doing this, Harvey has it combed off to the side for a more proper look. Aside from this, Harvey stands at 6' 1" and weighs in the range of 170 lbs. His eyes are a sharp green, strongly contrasting with his blood red hair.

For the clothing situation, Harvey tends to prefer more formal clothing, though he tends to avoid doing anything to keep his clothes from becoming disheveled. His coat is quite long and gray, matching his pants, with most of the buttons torn off. His undershirt is a dull blue, which he keeps open just to keep from overheating. Upon obtaining his infinite serenade tattoo, Harvey would most likely apply it on his left pectoral directly above his heart.

Personal Information
-Personality: Harvey is quick and to the point most of the time, always ready with a smart remark when the time calls for it. He tends to prefer keeping to himself rather than staying in groups. In addition his attitude in a fight is cold and calculated to the point where there is no emotion to be seen.
-Hobbies: Harvey enjoys playing cards, though he's admittedly not very good at them. He's never won a single hand of poker, though not for lack of trying.

-Ability: Surge - An odd type of sound magic. Vibrations created by the magic have the odd ability to cancel other forms of magic. These vibrations can also be channeled into shock waves which can then be fired towards an opponent.

Weapons/Equipment: None

Profession/Career: Off and On Fisherman and Mercenary.

-Brief History: Harvey was born and raised in Port Arante, where he would have likely staid for the rest of his life had he not taken an interest in magic at an early age. Due to this, Harvey spent quite a few years simply wandering the local countryside. His travels have led him through Reis quite a few times. Nowadays he still spends his time in the place of his birth, mostly due to the nice food and ocean view but a guys got to have principles. Occasionally he would do some odd jobs for the local marina, however his true passion remains to this day to join a guild such as Infinite Serenade. Recently he was given that very opportunity when he found a poster advertising that very guild. At first he couldn’t believe how easy it seemed but rather than complain, Harvey set out once again for Reis.

-Name: Mauro Canite

-Gender: Male

-Age: 20


-Appearance: Mauro's hair is very messy. No matter how many times (and he has tried often), his hair won't stay nice. As a plan of revenge against his hair, he has dyed it red with orange streaks, just to show it who is boss. His tattoo will be on the back of his neck, underneath his wild hair that hangs down over it. He wears sunglasses to look cool but it doesn't really work all of the time. To match his hair, Mauro got a mage to change the colors of his eyes, pale orange with red streaks. They don't look fierce, just different. His unremarkable face is smiling most of the time. He keeps himself clean-shaven and his skin is a little pale but otherwise normal.

On the other hand, his clothing is not unremarkable. When he set out, he had a nice set of red-orange clothes (from which he got the color for his hair and eyes), with a vest and leather boots. They were meant for adventuring but they were still nice. Unfortunately for him, his line of work was hard on clothes. Just getting around was hard enough, considering his quirk for heroing. He was given them by his childhood friend, though, so he refuses to throw them away. Thus the clothes are covered in stitches. The places were the cloth was completely torn off had been replaced by cloth from other clothing, though it doesn't quite match. He has a full-sized sheath at his side, despite the size of his weapon. His 'weapon' is just a hilt, which usually causes confusion when it is drawn. The hilt is steel inlaid with silver. The interesting part of it is a crystal embedded into the middle. The crystal is obviously magical and changes color and type depending on the element Mauro has absorbed.



-Personality:
Likes: People commenting on how cool he is, lemons
Dislikes: People telling him he looks stupid, oranges

Mauro usually rushes into situation, no matter what the occasion. He can tell when situations call for thinking but tries to avoid them. He likes clear cut situations, where there is a bad guy and a good guy (himself).

Mauro likes thinking of names for his special attacks. Sometimes, in the middle of battle, after calling out a cool name for an attack, he will back off and write it down in a little notebook he keeps with him. Unfortunately, he loses his pencil rather easily so he has to try and remember the name instead.


-Ability: Elemental Blade- Mauro carries around a simple hilt of a sword. His magic involves using elements around him to form the actual blade of his weapon. He needs access to the element to create the blade. Anything will do, even magically created substances. Each form has different abilities. In addition, the more of the element around him, the stronger the blade becomes. However, it also puts more of a drain on Mauro when he uses it.

Each element also has a secondary ability. When Mauro activates it he uses up a decent amount of magical power. The ability also dispels his sword's current elemental magic so if he wants to keep fighting, he has to make another sword.

List of Swords:
Stone Sword: Steen

Weapons/Equipment: Only his special sword hilt and his strange clothing.

Profession: None

-Brief History: Mauro lived in a nice, little village for most of his life. After he showed some talent for magic, he was apprenticed to a mage who lived as a hermit. While he really, really wanted to look cool, he just couldn't handle normal magic. Most of his attempts ended up causing something to burst into flame, usually at random: his master, himself, that nice little critter who just happened to go by... After the first week, the mage made sure to keep Mauro far from his house when practicing magic. After Mauro managed to set his master on fire five times in two days, the master was taken to a healer. Unfortunately, that is when the bandits came.

Mauro was the only mage in the town when it happened, though calling him a mage was a little too kind. He wielded a sword he had practiced with when his master had been recovering from another day of being lit on fire. Of course he was no match for even one bandit when it came to that. He did work out a nice little strategy, though. By keeping all of the bandits around him, he could use his magic at will because the only things that were around to be burnt were himself and the bandits. He managed to get a few but in the end, he was knocked out. A bandit had meant to cut him open but an arrow got him in the back and the sword turned and his Mauro's head with its hilt instead.

When Mauro woke up, he found that he had saved the village, in a way. While he had kept the bandits busy, the villagers had grabbed every weapon they could find, including a few crossbows they kept for just this sort of situation. Several villagers had been killed and many more were wounded. The village was also a wreck. Even though the villagers didn't blame Mauro, he wanted to make sure that he would be able to protect them the next time. He left the village to join a guild and learn from other mages. Before he left, his master, who had recently returned, gave him the crystal that is now embedded in his blade. The master recognized that Mauro would never be able to bring out magical power from himself without help, so he gave him the item that would allow Mauro to absorb other energies and full them with his own power. Eventually, Mauro ended up finding out about Infinite Serenade and decided to try and join up. There would be plenty of opportunities to show off and make himself known. What he really wants is for the tales of his exploits to reach his village. He hadn't heard about the disaster that had struck the guild.

Unedited old CS. Working on edits.

-Name: Ciara (Kee-rah) McClellan

-Gender: Female

-Age: 22

-Appearance: At the height of five feet and seven inches, she’s about mid-height for a woman, and has the guild tattoo on the right side of her neck in a decent size (Which her dad almost killed her for getting. He’s not very fond of guilds, so she doesn’t see him too often.) Her body type is well-toned with petite shoulders, with hips and long legs that attract a lot of attention. With very straight light brown hair with natural highlights of red that is cut in an elegant sweep away from her face. When working, she normally pulls it up into a hasty bun or into a high ponytail. Her eyes are a bright violet and she usually goes through the vanity of putting on makeup to accentuate them, unless she is too busy or forgets. The rare times that she’s off-duty, she wears shorts and leather sandals that tie their way up her calf in black leather, and a multitude of many different colored tanktops. Once in a while she’ll wear a mini skirt or a long-sleeve. On her wrists, she has a few misc. bracelets mostly made with shells, thread and glass beads of some sort. Her work uniform consists of a black or white nurse’s skirt, a black tanktop with lace at the bottom and white vest with some black or white matching heels and a red scarf tied like a tie with the guild symbol on the middle with the initials (IS) underneath the symbol in black. She also almost always is wearing a pair of sunglasses(Usually brown with surgical steel rims: custom made). The pair that she’s wearing changes all the time because she tends to lose them or break them despite having cases for them, so she buys them in pairs or more. She normally sleeps in panties and a tanktop of varying degrees of ‘exposure’.

-Personality: She is a serious girl with a soft spot for anyone/thing in pain, she just wants to make the pain go away. When she sees somebody or something being brutalized, she feels the need to protect said person/thing, and will go to the absurd level to do so, even if it means getting injured herself. She has never killed a human being, but sadly recalls that one time she stepped on a particularly large beetle. When meeting new people, she’s one to judge on appearances, and then revise her opinion of you later if needed. She is impressed with well-dressed people and easily succumbs to attractions, despite knowing better. She tends to mess with her hair and bite her lips when she’s nervous or flustered. Another little tidbit is that she likes a good smoke, particularly when under extreme stress or after a particularly bad surgery.
Likes: Plants, animals, being well-dressed, cats, going for runs, men, and the occasional cigarette.
Dislikes: Disrespectful people and being disrespected, killing, lima beans, sunburn and bright lights.
-Hobbies: Healing, gardening, eating, working on new types of medicine/poisons and ways to administer them, documenting her work, running, socializing, reading and taking it easy.
(What your character likes/dislikes, how he/she reacts to certain situations, etc. List hobbies here.)

-Abilities: Using medicine as a weapon. (Sedatives, hallucinogens, etc) Fights using a scalpel, medical senbon, and sometimes a syringe as her weapons.
(What fighting style(s) or magic(s) you would like your character to use.)

-Weapons/Equipment: (List anything here that your character relies on as an armament or tool of sorts. Enrein‘s level of technology is akin to what would be considered ‘early steampunk‘.)

-Profession/Career: (Whatever sort of service(s) your character performs on a constant basis to occupy his time, generally for spending money. Non-profit jobs work as well. If your character doesn‘t have one, say so.)

-Brief History: Ciara grew up in a small family of two in Reis, her father and herself. Her mother left her father because she fell out of love and re-married an actor, effectively leaving her divorced husband and daughter out of her life. Her father owned a pharmaceutical company, and began training Ciara in the arts of prescribed drugs and plants and their uses in all forms. Before she could master the art, her father sold the business because it became too much for him to handle and he refused to hand it off to anyone else but family.

When she was in her early teens, Ciara didn’t hold much of an interest in healing people, she wanted to be outside, running, instead of inside reading books. One day, while playing hide and go seek with the neighbor’s kid, when he fell out of a tree and onto some rocks. The poor kid’s ribs punctured his lungs and he bled out before any help could arrive. Ever since then, Ciara has taken an acute interest bordering on obsession of helping people through the use of plants.

When she first graduated from her apprenticeship with one of the better doctors of the area, she struck out on her own, but had a hard time finding a place that needed another doctor. That was when she started to look into guilds and which ones would appeal to her. It was then that she heard about Sonata and his Guild: the Infinite Serenade Guild and it was there where she ran into one person in particular that she became great friends with.


-Character Theme: (A song or musical track that represents your character. This is not a requirement. It's just an optional bit of fun.)

Name: Artemis Whelan

Gender: Male

Age: 24

Appearance
Standing tall at the height of 6' with long black, straight hip length hair, held in a pink ribbon and skinny rimmed eyeglasses. He has a piercing gaze of hazel with a hint of forest green around the pupil and has a well toned body of slightly pale skin. He wears a long starch white jacket, red button up dress shirt and denim jeans. He's flexible for fighting purposes, although it does come in handy for other things. A small golden chain necklace hangs on his neck to his collarbone. When he joins the guild the tattoo will be mid height, left ribcage.

Personality: He enjoys watching others, not very much of a talker himself unless its a topic of personal interest; for example cigarettes. A hedonist who's kind, sophisticated only on occasion, and easy going. Very people friendly but because of his face he may seem the type to ignore and be nonchalant. He's the type to listen and give sound input back to whoever is asking for advice. He's all around good-natured and believes that is what keeps people coming back for more. He dislikes it when someone mistreats women and children, along with those who insult others based on appearances. He stays calm a majority of the time but when something gets serious he tends to take control of the situation before it gets out of hand. His hobbies being an avid smoker and reading stories to children.

Ability: If ever there was a case he lost the tonfa in battle he'll result to defensive hand-to-hand combat of Mixed martial arts. He's simply a novice with MMA but is somewhat decent at using his arms as if he were using his tonfa, purely defensive until the tonfa are returned to him. Mixed martial arts is a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques and skills, from a mixture of martial arts traditions and non-traditions.

Weapon: Exceptional skill at using tonfa. Steampunk appearance, at first glance, both are only small rods--the handles--with a button at the end surface of the knob. Pressing the buttons on each handle, pushes the 'T' shaped shaft out of the top of the smaller rods and the full tonfa forms within seconds. Only a forceful hit against the top intersection forces the main and shorter shaft back into the handle. Etched in the craftsmanship of the tonfa are traditional steampunk designs, drawn twisting wires and gears litter the framework.

The tonfa can be gripped by the short perpendicular handle or by the longer main shaft. In defense, if the handle is grasped then the shaft protects the forearm and hand while the knob protects the thumb. If both ends of the shaft are held, the shaft can be used to ward off blows and the handle can be used as a hook to catch the opponent's weapons.

In offense, one can swing the shaft to strike the target. Large amounts of momentum can be imparted to the shaft by twirling the tonfa by the handle. The tonfa can also be wielded in such a way as to use the knob as a striking implement, held either by the handle or by the shaft. One can also stab opponents with the shaft of the tonfa. By holding the shaft and the handle of the tonfa together, one can use it for holding or breaking techniques.

Tonfa are traditionally wielded in pairs, one in each hand. As the tonfa can be held in many different ways, education in the use of the tonfa often involves learning how to switch between different grips at high speed. Such techniques require great manual dexterity.

Profession/Career: Handyman to pass the time, buy food and cigarettes

Brief History: Artemis was born in the well rounded port, Port Arante. His parents were hired help for just about anything that didn't involve killing. Mail couriers, body guards, cat rescue, all that jazz, they would do it. So it wasn't odd for Artemis to grow up learning to be part of the family business. He was exceptionally well with fighting hand-to-hand and ended up branching his own type of service. He picked up smoking at an open cafe, one he was assigned to watch over in place of his father. A man a few years older than his father offered him a try and at first young Artemis nearly died of choking but after the other two times he got the hang of it. He's been addicted to the sticks ever since. The income was decent for teenage Artemis but in a town full of fishers, there was barely enough work for the rest of the townspeople. When he grew old enough he left his home on a journey to find his place in the world. Just as he had when he was younger he enjoyed the company of small children. Giving them stories that fueled their imaginations he felt at least he could give something to the world. Then, one day, while sharing a smoke at a bar, he heard of a certain guild from a group of men sitting at the table across his way. Infinite Serenade, required assistance and quite possibly adventurous members. He was itching for some action and wouldn't mind lending a hand--even joining would be nice--so off to Reis he went.

Will get my CS up on thursday.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.

-Name: Malzahar Zien
-Gender: Male
-Age: 57
-Appearance: Malzahar is an elderly man, but his body is still in peak physical condition. He wear's a robe that extend's down to his knee's with loose cloth pant's and a pair of sandal's. The robe is a deep blue with burning red trimming. Around his neck is a silver chain with a crafted dragon's head on it, usually tucked under his robe.

His skin is pale and somewhat wrinkly due to his age but the robe's betray his enemies making them believe he is weak and flabby with his age. He has long eyebrow's and a foot long beard to match, both a very pale grey, head is clean shaven. Upon his right shoulder extending down to his arm is a tattoo of a rather strange skull his armpit is where the jaw is located. The tattoo of the skull is placed so it look's like it is spitting out his arm. From the mouth there is a series of tentacle-like appendages that have been worn out with time, he keep's it this way to remind him that violence is an evil thing.
His opposite arm depicts a holy symbol, that stretches around his arm and down to his elbow. He has this one to remind him that violence can be used for good.

To make this complete he has the word's "Neutral in all thing's" Tattoo'd across his back.
The guild tattoo is on the palm of his left hand.

Personal Information
-Personality: The man has two side's, his elderly side and his younger side.
Elderly: Not very fast walking, and usually found reclining somewhere with his cane beside him or in his hand, he tend's to stare upwards at the sky as if contemplating when he will become a part of it. He often give's advice or tries to cheer up his companion's with tale's from his past. A generous man who truly enjoy's life.

Younger side: Though his body does not change, his attitude does. Something switches off in him and the embrace of his age no longer has control, his body as limber and fast as anyone 1/3 his age and stronger. Though he is merciful, he make's sure the enemy will not harm him or his companion's under pain of death. His usually vibrant blue eye's turn to a cold and deep purple.

-Hobbies: Has a tendency to write, and is a publisher of several book's including: Maleable steel, rock solid flesh. The way of war. Into the darkess.

-Profession/Career: Professional hitman/assasin but retired, returning to the spotlight as a hero.

-Brief History: Malzahar was cursed with a strange power at a young age, apparently something that his family had earned for generation's. The power of the void. From the abyss he can curse his enemies to feel terrible pain teem across their body or channel it in his body to create 'hardened' skin. He learned to use these abilities over a course of 30 year's starting from the age of 7. At the age of 15 he became a member of a famous dark guild before dropping out and back to the shadow's as nothing more then 'a mystery' His name never revealed. In his late thirties when he had quit the dark guild, it was because he no longer felt the world needed a killer It needed someone who would do the world better.

He has spent the last few year's alone in his small house in quiet contemplation, when he heard of the attack and disbandment of a famous guild he was sure joining it's newly formed group was his destiny.

Abilities : Void strength.
The void is a place of darkness, of evil and suffering, essentially a hell that few people have ever seen and remained sane enough to talk about. Something within it compels madness and an intense psychological meltdown.
Malzahar's clan has seen the void first hand and ever now embrace it as their own body.

Channeling it is no easy task as it is straining on the mind and the body.

It's core abilities are: Malific vision's (Plague's the enemies mind with vision's of their own worst fears or Scene's from Malzahar's past day's as a brutal killer)

Void strength: The name say's it all. The arm with the skull is a channeler of the void's power resulting in incredibly inhuman punches, steel can rarely penetrate his arm's defense and magic against it is weakened tremendously. The more he uses it the more the appendages fade, resulting in the total loss of this power.

Been busy with school and my laptop fan is busted, but I'll try and get my new CS up asap.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.

Name: Gideon Delle Morte

-Gender: Male

-Age: 27

-Appearance: http://dark.pozadia.org/images/wallpape ... 24149.jpeg

(Minus the wings) Gideon’s guild tattoo is on the right side of his face.

-Personality: Gideon is the quite, brooding type that tends to enjoy being alone. Although a loner, he is still friendly to those around him, and is a strong team player. Gideon barley sleeps, and usually spends most of the time training in private, honing his skills, to become stronger, and to protect those he cares about.

-Abilities: Gideon specializes in a combo partial transformation and shadow magic. He usually creates wings, claws, and weapons out of pure dark energy. He can manipulate it into various shapes and weapons, or even combine the dark energy with pre-existing weapons that boost their power.

-Weapons/Equipment: Gideon uses a large scythe as his primary weapon, (You can see what it looks like in the picture of Gideon)

-Profession/Career: None.

-Brief History: Gideon was born to a young farming couple on the outskirts of the city. He discovered his abilities at a young age, and began developing them. However, all was not peaceful. Gideon’s parent’s farm was situated on extremely fertile land, and was wanted by other farms and such. They refused to sell, and so someone hired a guild to take out the family, and wipe the farm from existence. Gideon was the only survivor, and at the tender age of 10, was left alone. He blamed himself, he thought himself to weak to protect them, and so spent his entire life bent on getting stronger, and avenging his family.

-Character Theme: I will Not Bow by Breaking Benjamin.

Unfortunately I'm going to have to pull out. I've lost my inspiration with my character and I can't remember what direction I wanted to go with him. Sorry Acktoo.

I don't think I'll be able to continue this. Most of my files for the thread were eaten when my computer died, and the only way I plan on redoing said files is if there's a large clamoring for this RP to happen.

And let's be honest, excluding various technical difficulties, I've made you guys wait long enough...

-Name: Edward Clipse, Prof. E. Clipse to you Snappers.

-Gender: Male

-Age: 46

-Appearance: A man of distinguished age, even though he's midway through his life he still maintains a very rigorous exercise regime, He's 5ft 8" and weighs 170lbs of sleek toned muscle. His hair is long and nicely groomed, the bald gene has kept well away from him as his hair is lusciously thick yet age is starting to creep in with a tint of white around his temples only, the rest is deeply black. His face is finely chiseled with strong jawbones and practically perfect defined nose. Those who look into his eyes will see they are deep pools of a rich chocolate though there is something odd in his eyes as if there's a odd bit of red in there but only those who look into his eyes for long enough will see that. His tattoo is just above his right eyebrow though it’s rather small so it doesn’t ruin his good features.

It terms of his fashion Edward dresses as if every day was a royal ball or posh event, he loves his waistcoats, finely trimmed jackets laced with golden hem and trousers of exquisite material. His outfits tend to change from time to time but his main colours are dark purple, ruby red, ebony black, royal gold and sovereign silver. Sometimes his outfits can seem to change without anyone noticing, this just comes with the magic prowess he possesses.

-Personality: Edward was given his abilities for the way he went about life, even though in appearance he seems like some stiff upper class toff, he in fact is one of the most generous and giving people you'll ever meet. He regards Justice and Order as two things that should be upheld with the very soul of his being, right any wrong and punish the corrupt. He dislikes those who use power for their own means and ends or to further their own power even more, he also dislikes those whose ego outweighs their actual prowess or don't actually live up to their ego and would be willing to knock them down a peg or two, both physically and mentally.

Likes: Cars, birds, wine, cigars, antiquities, magical objects, boxing matches, and the colour gold
Dislikes: Bad smells, bird poop, olives, monocles, evil magic, blood and the colour green
Hobbies include:
*Ancient Magic and Texts
*Arcane Antiquities
*Arcane Practice (Hex/Curse Specialist)
*Boxing (Kickboxing Specialist)
*Waltz Dance
*Wine Connoisseur

-Abilities: Edward is very efficient in the Arcane Arts, his main specialty is in hexes and curses though is also very proficient in polymorphing magic, his ability in hexes allows him to create blasts of hexial (or negative energy to me and you) to stun or even incapacitate his foes. His curses can range from tied shoelaces to complete physical overhaul, such as turning a nasty, spiteful yet beautiful princess into the a rotting old hag to match her interior personality. This lead him to his fascination with polymorphisation, he can turn objects into animals, animals into objects, people into objects and animals etc. the only thing that he can't change is something is not of a solid state such as gasses or liquids as their states are always moving, nor can he cast this type of magic upon himself as he wouldn’t be able to change back. He can use these arts of magic with relative ease but has no ability with elemental magic, black arts or necromancy whatsoever.

The only other magical ability he has is not even something he learnt but what he found, during his life as a owner of a rare antiquities shop he came across a rare pendant that had upon it strange magical symbols, upon putting it on he found that he could willingly phase through most objects yet able to still pick up objects and allow them to phase through as well, the only restriction with this object is that he cannot phase through liquid as with his other abilities that liquid has a ever moving state.

Edward has always loved boxing and is very good at it; he’s won many bouts In the ring which is proven by his features being untouched and still physically perfect. He spent many years enjoying the sport until he felt he needed something a bit more advanced so he decided to take up kickboxing which he found he enjoyed even more so he studied it alongside his magical arts for nearly 10 years and has become his favored combat technique.

-Profession/Career: Owner of a ancient relics and book store called ‘Midnight Books and Antiquities’, was also once a professor of Ancient civilizations at the local university.

- Brief History: As a young man he had all the money and fame he could want, being the son of a wealthy entrepreneur father and a aristocratic mother. He’d spend most of his time with the other richly born and bred around his age, but Edward found them both rather stupid and very dull in terms of their world views and knowledge of the world.

This lead Edward to begin studying many subjects but none more so that ancient history where he became fascinated with the ancient myths surrounding most objects and treasures, this lead to him spending his gap year at an archaeological dig site unearthing anything ancient they could find.
Edward decided to continue this research in a more focused fashion by visiting those still worshipping ancient magic and gods. Although he got into a few perilous situations, one of which ended in the death of his university sweetheart Felicia. Edward was not dissuaded by these events it spurred him on even more leading him to uncover many artifacts of magic an many long forgotten tomes of magic.

Upon his 30th birthday Edward decided to become a professor at the university he once taught at, of course they were very welcome to have him back as he was one of the leading experts at the time, but his rival Mortimus wanted the position and was willing to do anything to have it. Unknown to both Edward and the university Mortimus was a practitioner of the Dark Arts and nearly killed Edward when he revealed his abilities but Edward had learned a few spells of his own during his travels and was able to counter Mortimus and eventually defeat him and keep his place at the university.

A few years later Edward had quit university life and set up his shop selling Magic related books and neutralized magical artifacts, although he did keep some actual magical items and books in his private safe hidden safely in the shop only for his own private use as he feels they’d be too dangerous anywhere else or with anyone else.

-Name: Gasu (Not really her real name, she never told anyone her name. People just started calling her Gasu; courtesy of her Gasmask)

-Gender: Female

-Age: 14

-Appearance: A physique befitting her age, she stands about 4ft 9" weighing about 88lbs. She brandishes short blonde hair without any other special features that differentiates her from the crowd. Generally a normal child, befitting her appearance except that she dons a gasmask hiding her face coupled with a simple sleeping dress. On her feet, one would notice that she wears combat boots. (For a visual reference, refer to my avatar lol)

-Personality: She loves her personal space. Never, ever go near her or touch her things. Other than her obsession over privacy, she's a rather silent child. Keeping mostly everything, literally everything to herself. A character who's quite hard to read in fact; now that no one can see her facial expressions or notice her bare-existing, sometimes random body language.

-Abilities: She tinkers with technology most of the time, she's a techie and a steampunk weapon specialist. A marksman with her own weapon.

-Weapons/Equipment: A custom made airgun capable of firing in semi-automatic mode.

-Profession/Career: Tinker/Techie

-Brief History: History is for the weak. She looks forward all the time, ignoring her past mistakes altogether. She is what one would call, a person of the future. If you were to ask her about her past life, be wary that you're passing her personal space.

-Character Theme: You Are Smart by Akitaka Tohyama (Katamari Damacy)

All of that vanished when a gang of drunken guards stormed in the bakery and took everything. He confronted them but ended up beaten up. The bakery owner pleaded but was answered with a public beating. The guard did not spare the by standers there--not even the little girl who always visits the bakery to buy cookies. She was beaten horribly that she died on the stop. Enraged he tried to kill the guards. Managed to slit the throat of a guard before he was brought down by the remaining thugs. One guard pulled out his sword, warned Dante of who's in-charge and gave him a cut on the left side of his neck. He was then prisoned for public harassment and drunkenness. Dante was sentenced to be hanged.

That night, he was rescued by a two mercenaries. He wasn't the only one who was freed. Many ill-accused victims were freed that night. Dante, and the other freed prisoners were then invite to join a underground guild. There he was trained to be a stealth assassin.

-Name: Rokku Hoshi

-Gender: Male

-Age: 25

-Appearance: He has black hair in a mohawk with red tips, black clothes that cover everything below his neck, a large sword on his back, wooden sandals, japanese style, and tan skin. His height is about 6 ft. and he's skinny but strong, some would say svelt.

-Personality: He's not the smartest guy you'll meet but Rokku is quick to improvise when he can. The large blade on his back, being a claymore, should take two hands, but for Rokku, one is good enough. When he's not thinking or fighting, he's hitting on girls, being a class A pervert. It's hard to get him mad but when you do, you will be scared shitless. He loves to fight and will usually ask people better than him for a friendly sparring match. He will also try to protect people he cares about if he thinks they're in trouble.

-Abilities: He wields a 2-handed claymore like a 1-handed short sword but can also fight weaponless if needed. He's strong, fast, not very smart, but he is a great friend to have on your side in a fight. He can use other weapons if needed, but prefers the claymore.

-Weapons/Equipment: His claymore, wooden japanese style sandals, metal wrist guards, and a guitar for when there's nothing to do. Other than that, he carries only food and medicine in his pack.

-Profession/Career: He has no job but is talented with his guitar as well as his sword. He will accept any free-kill jobs (killing people with no care how they die) as long as they pay big, sometimes his prices are unheard of. While he travels, people often confuse him to be a beggar, giving him money as they pass, but he doesn't complain. If they want to throw away money, who is he to say they cant? He keeps most of it, sometimes giving a handful of it to a beggar he passes on his way to an inn or bar.

-Brief History: He was born and raised with his family, traveling different lands. He last saw his family 3 years ago when he left for a mission of high importance to a far land in the opposite direction than his family was traveling. He believes them to be dead because of the blood that surrounded the campfire. He didn't know what happened but has thought of many possibilities. He's been traveling alone for most of his life since then, sometimes taking 1 or 2 others with him.

-Character Theme: Indestructible by Disturbed [it is possible to kill him but is hard because of his speed and strength, most likely, an archer will need a poison arrow to kill him] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWxBrI0g1kE&ob=av2nl
