    Wallace Clemons
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gender:
    Male

    Species:
    Human

    Age:
    looks like late 40s

    Alignment:

    Profession:
    necromancer

    Power Rating:
    Varies according to circumstances. About C+ in general.

    Description:
    A man of average height and weight, usually dressed like a rough wild west man. Has unhealthy, grey skin; sharp, red eyes; and a big moustache. His voice is old, weary and rough.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    A revolver and a magic staff made from aluminium and bone, which facilitates the use of dark magic.

    Abilities:
    He is a skilled necromancer, which gives him a broad range of spells revolving around death and undeath. All the standard Necromancer stuff, but also some unusual abilities gained through experimentation.

    Backstory:
    He came to the Nexus six years ago. Today, he lives in the worse part of Deadwood Street, Inside.

    Miscellaneous:
    He doesn't have much money.

    His primary business is to go Outside, drain an area of nature of all its life force, seal it into a crystal and sell it. He is very cautious about whom he sells it to, though.


    Dale Buck Jimmy Joe

    Show

    Gender:
    Male

    Species:
    Human

    Age:
    looks like early 30s

    Alignment:

    Profession:
    some sort of enchanter

    Power Rating:
    D

    Description:
    Looks like a total redneck, with a voice to match.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    A shotgun. A vest with pocket dimensions in its pockets, in which he carries around a lot of (arguably) useful stuff. A heavily enchanted pickup truck with unbelievably good performance.

    Abilities:
    His powers belong to the very recently developed and rarely taught field of "physics magic", which revolves around the manipulation of physical properties of objects and places. Can only be used on inanimate objects.

    Backstory:
    He came to the Nexus nine years ago. Today, he lives in a small, rural town in Outside.

    Miscellaneous:
    He makes enough money to live without financial worries.

    Dale's primary business is enchanting machinery to drastically improve its performance.


    'Auntie'
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gender:
    Female

    Species:
    Human (with a little bit of cyborg)

    Age:
    looks like mid 40s

    Alignment:

    Profession:
    unemployed, gunslinger

    Power Rating:
    Offensively B, defensively E.

    Description:
    She is short, a little overweight, apparently of sub-Saharan African descent and in her late 40s as it seems. Her skin is so dark it could be described as literally black. She's wearing a hoodie one size too large for her and with a huge front pocket, cargo pants, outdoor shoes and her medium-length hair tied into a lazy bun. Has a mature, friendly-sounding voice.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    A small blaster pistol that she carries in the pocket of her hoodie at all times.

    Abilities:
    Implanted around her collarbone is a small computer, which is controlled through a neural interface in Auntie's brain.

    Backstory:
    She came to the Nexus four months ago. Today, she travels around the Nexus without a home of her own, only staying in the cheapest of inns and hotels.

    Miscellaneous:
    Despite having neither a job nor receiving any form of welfare, she somehow always has enough money to get by.

    She is searching for her lost son who supposedly came to the Nexus before her.


    Kulpynai 'Strawberry' Strabirova
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gender:
    Female

    Species:
    Genetically engineered "mermaid"

    Age:
    looks like mid 50s

    Alignment:

    Profession:
    multiple low-pay jobs, super soldier

    Power Rating:
    in water B-, out of water D

    Description:
    Instead of legs, Strawberry has a fish tail with a small, stiff caudal fin. She is around 2.5m or 8'2'' long and has the physique of an Olympic athlete. Her entire body is covered in slick skin, blue-greyish in color and adorned with a natural camouflage pattern. Strawberry has six elongated fingers on each hand (two thumbs per hand) with webbing between them. Also has a large dorsal fin and two additional breathing holes in her sides, just below the rib cage. Usually wears a colorful wetsuit or a long sleeved loose fit dress, and a tight hijab with a flower pattern.
    On land, she rolls around in a standard wheelchair. Her voice sounds young and hoarse.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    If she knows she will encounter dangerous people/creatures, Strawberry will bring her amphibious submachine gun (works both in and out of water) and a survival knife.

    Abilities:
    She has over 40 years of military experience, but none of them earned in the Nexus. Her body was made specifically for military purposes, but also has a lot of useful non-combat features.

    Backstory:
    She came to the Nexus three years ago. Today, she lives in a coastal town near Inside.

    Miscellaneous:
    She doesn't have much money.

    Smorre Brod
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gender:
    Male

    Species:
    Werecat

    Age:
    looks like late 30s

    Alignment:

    Profession:
    trade magnate, mafioso

    Power Rating:
    D

    Description:
    His default form is that of a cat furry, slim and in shape. Although he is able to shapeshift into a big cat form and a human form as well, although the latter is rarely used. Likes to wear mafia-looking suits and hats and speaks with a somewhat awkward accent.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    When he knows a situation will come down to hand-to-hand "business", he will bring an assortment of small, mundane weapons.

    He employs a small number of henchmen to aid him in his dirty work.

    Currently owns a number of small to medium-sized trade and wholesale firms in Inside, enough to earn him a name in the business world but too few to give him any significant power.

    Abilities:
    Smorre can shapeshift at will between a normal human form, his default furry-like form and his vicious big cat form. He has some experience in a great number of fields and skills, but is a master of none. When walking barefoot, his soft paws make no sound whatsoever.

    His particular weakness is gold (only the pure metal!), as he is mesmerized by it.

    Smorre is also a skilled businessman and has connections to the criminal underworld of Inside.

    Backstory:
    He came to the Nexus twelve years ago. Today, he resides in Hodgepodge Street, Inside.

    Miscellaneous:
    He has a lot of money.

    It pains him to see the working class suffer under wage slavery. Smorre's ultimate plan is to expand his trade and wholesale empire further and further, until he completely controls the flow of goods in Inside. Then he can force all other employers to raise their wages, because if they don't, Smorre will simply stop selling them wares and starve them to bankruptcy. ((He will never achieve this goal.))


    Yna Jumpercable
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gender:
    Female

    Species:
    Some species of harpy.

    Age:
    Her species' aging is weird. Her face looks like late teens or early 20s, but because of her small body is sometimes mistaken for a child. Is actually much younger than that, despite being halfway through her natural lifespan.

    Alignment:

    Power Rating:
    E+

    Description:
    Yna is short and has a very light build, making her roughly the size of an older child or young teenager. She has wings instead of arms, with a span of about 4m / 13ft, and her legs are bird-like and end in talons. Her skin is brown and her shoulder-length, black hair could use some shampoo and grooming. Yna is missing a few teeth, a prominent scar runs along her chin and lower lip, and her nose is crooked. There's a small tap embedded in her right upper arm (wing?), connected directly to a major artery.

    As for clothing, she wears short jeans, a tube top, and a cheap, lime-green poncho. The latter is sometimes worn inverted: the other side has a huge red cross painted on it as well as the word "healer", both on the front and on the back.

    Personality:

    Equipment:
    Nothing special. A small notepad and pencils.

    Abilities:
    Yna's blood has magical restorative properties, the common method of application is via ingestion. The specific effects are based on the user's perception of self: injuries will almost always be mended, but if the the user is missing an arm for example, and has firmly accepted this as being part of themselves, the arm will not regenerate. Other effects may include: rejuvenation if the user sees themselves as younger than they actually are, weight loss if the user sees themselves as slimmer than they actually are, up to a complete change of sex and even species if the user sees themselves as being in the entirely wrong body. Yna is a walking, breathing healing potion, fountain of youth, and cosmetic surgeon all in one.

    She also has telekinetic powers, being able to move objects with her mind. She can lift a mass of about 10kg / 22lb and is very "dexterous" with this power, able to command very precise and quick movements. Yna has to see an object to move it.

    Yna broke a mirror once and is now cursed with improbably bad luck.

    Backstory:
    She was not born in the Nexus, but deliberately trafficked here.

    Miscellaneous:
    She has next to no money.

    She sells her blood on the streets for a very low price. Has no job or income otherwise.


    If I play anything that's not listed in here and speaks in bold black, it is an NPC.

    All my characters are suited (but not necessarily willing) for adventure and violence. None of them will backstab your characters without provocation.
