    Backstory
    Spoiler
    Show

    At the moment he simply believes that he is a living weapon. Obviously there is more than meets the eye. Once he was a human child but he died and turned into changeling demon. The reason for this is that his life was a miserable one with a sad death. As a changeling demon he wandered the netherworld for thousands of years. In this time he mastered many spells and gained much knowledge. When he became a demon lord he locked away his persona of Red and adopted a more fitting and cruel one by the name of Element. These two personas would fight every now and then but Element remained dominant. His power attracted the shadow race. Though he was powerful he could not stand up to the combined powers of Grantz, Ivan and Xin. Though they were failed experiments they were still made to challenge the power of one of Lucifer's top generals Hitoshura. This fight had drained him of all the power he gained through out the years but he did destroy all three foes.

    Although this was the case the shadow race decided to take him in as another experiment for a living weapon. It took them a decade but they managed to make him regain a portion of his power but this time under their thrall. He was sent to the Nexus to grow stronger as a weapon with Element's persona at the lead. However a fight with three strong foes jogged his head and made Red as the dominant persona. As Red he continued to grow stronger and the shadow race never suspected a thing. When they thought him strong enough for the moment they sent shadow to retrieve him for mass production.

    Through this Red unveils his origins. Alongside Serph who was an experiment just like him and shadow who decided to help him to redeem himself they traveled to a place called demon nest. With the help of a seemingly invincible adventurer they make it to the center of the place where he was allowed to make one wish. He wished that he never became a demon. His wish is granted but his story does not end here.

    During the time where he died and supposed to become a changeling his life was saved by scientists. This did not turn out to simply be an act of kindness. His life was now used to further experiments on human powers. Here he gained the power of telekinesis. The project advanced and he gained the ability to absorb objects like swords into his body and use them later if so needed. Once his body reached the limit of being experimented on he was sent to the Nexus in an egg state to test him out. When he landed in the Nexus something went wrong and he was stuck in the egg state, the programming in his head also went awry and created two separate personas namely Red and Element.

    Rene Montagne

    Alias: The Wallflower, The Urban Spook
    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 28
    Alignment: True Neutral, leaning towards evil
    Class/Profession: Bountyhunter/Private eye
    Power Rating: B

    Description: Rene stands at 5'7" and weighs about 130 lbs. Her slim build is made less so for some muscler that she has gained conditioning her body for her line of work. Her short hair is naturally dark brown but she dyes it black with red highlights. Rene usually wears some baggy black pants, some simple boots, a long sleeve shirt. One of the only thing that she always wears are some sunglasses that have pink tinted glasses.

    Personality: Rene is fairly calm and easy going but is very efficient when it comes to her job. The bottom line is what she looks towards, as long as that bottom line works for her then everythign is good. She is somewhat hard to reason with due to the fact that she acts very much on a whim.

    Equipment: Rene's main weapons are a pair of machine pistols and a combat knife. She keeps the knife in a small sheath that has been built into her boot. Her only other special piece of equipment are her glasses that allow her to see through walls, only walls that are not metal of some sort. Otherwise she has a duffle bag with differnt equpiment that is useful for surveillance. She also has an mp3 player on her at all times.

    Abilities: Rene has trained a fair amount in different martial arts and combat forms but her supernatural ability to move in between walls is her trademark. Rene has the ability to move in between walls, or more percisely in the spaces in the walls. Once she is inside of the wall she can move as easily as walking,jump out of the wall to surprise and pull people in.

    Backstory: To be written later

    “Believe in the ideal, not the idol.”

    "Those who flow through life, as life flows, feel no wear... feel no tear... need no mending... no repair."

    Tomas Smith

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 36

    Alignment:
    Identifies most closely with Chaotic Neutral.

    Class/Profession: Soldier/Survivalist/Scavenger

    Power Rating:
    Going by Neon Knight's scale, probably a D+/C-. Skilled fighter, but his equipment (power armor and advanced weaponry) is the real threat.

    Description: Tomas is an even 6'0", and has brown eyes with brown hair slicked up in the traditional 1950s "greaser" style. He is lean and well-muscled, a result of spending a lifetime fighting for survival in the wastes. Tomas has several scars from encounters with various unsavory characters; specifically, a short scar on his left cheek and shrapnel scars on his hands.

    Personality: Tomas is a survivalist, and as such tends to be a bit self-centered, looking for the best way to advantage himself in any situation. That said, he isn't evil. Scavenging is Tomas' greatest love, and he'll jump at the chance to obtain something interesting, useful, or visually unique, even if he has no idea what it does.

    Equipment: Tomas' most noticeable piece of equipment is his beat-up old suit of T-45d power armor, which he stripped off of the corpse of a dead Brotherhood of Steel member that he stumbled across. He's also got several energy weapons and a shock baton.

    In terms of non-combat equipment, as an expert scavenger, Tomas has myriad bags and packs which are stuffed full of scavenged equipment and supplies. When lucky, Tomas sometimes has a bit of salvage on hand which may help him in a given situation, though this is not a common occurrence.


    Backstory: Tomas grew up in the outskirts of the D.C. wasteland, circa the 2270s. He spent years roaming around, scavenging, fighting, and generally just surviving. Despite his extensive time in the wasteland, he never got caught up in the factional conflict which wracked the area. Over the years, he became obsessed with scavenging, often risking his life in dangerous trips into old ruins.

    One day, a trip into a run-down old science facility went wrong, and when Tomas woke up, he found himself in an unfamiliar city.

    Jaren Mylauk

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Human

    Age: 24

    Alignment:
    Neutral

    Class/Profession: Mercenary

    Power Rating:
    Going by Neon Knight's scale, probably an even C. Highly skilled fighter with enhanced toughness and agility. No stronger than a normal human, though, and a bullet wound is still going to be cause for concern.

    Description: Jaren is on the shorter side at 5'7", with hazel eyes and close-cropped dirty blonde hair. His build is lean and wiry. He typically can be found wearing a long brown coat (the better to conceal weaponry with) over body armor and jeans.

    Personality: Jaren has a love for humor and doesn't really take life too seriously, so long as he's not fighting. Jaren exults in the thrill of a good fight, and loves to test himself in combat. Few things are more satisfying to him than walking away untouched while your opponent lies in a pool of their own blood. This has the unfortunate side effect of rendering him a bit arrogant in battle and, thusly, more exposed than he probably should be, but hey, what would life be without some complications?

    Equipment: Jaren wears lightweight synthetic body armor over his chest, abdomen, and upper arms. This body armor offers roughly the same protection as chainmail might, though it's more effective against firearms/energy attacks and less effective against melee strikes.

    As far as weaponry, Jaren has a pistol and shotgun, as well as two tech-enhanced swords, his preferred method of engagement.


    Backstory: Jaren is from a near-future version of our Earth. He was a member of a mercenary corporation which specialized in enhancing its product both genetically and cybernetically. (He's not from Deus Ex, though.) Jaren joined for the money, and stayed for the thrills. He's become perhaps too fond of mercenary work over the years. His chopper went down over Central America in his latest mission, and came back up in the Nexus.

    Cassidy Scarlett


    Alias: N/A
    Gender: Female
    Race: Human
    Age: 25
    Profession: Unemployed

    Description: Cass does not appear feminine in any way. She is tall and well-built, and has cut her black hair in an undercut. She typically wears jeans, and a leather jacket.

    Personality: Cassidy is arrogant and acts very much like someone from the streets. She has a very fiery demeanor, and will talk back to just about anyone she doesn't like. She's prone to getting angry, and likes to settle disputes with her fists a lot more often than with words. Cass also doesn't trust many people - that's just a byproduct of her career. The few that she does manage to trust, though, have gained a friend who'll put her life on the line for their safety, even though she will complain about it.

    Abilities: Cass is an adept - someone who uses magic to improve their physical abilities. As a result, she's incredibly fast. By the time a guard aims their rifle at her, she's already right next to them and popping them in the neck. She can also see into the astral world, which allows her to see spirits and magical auras. Finally, her speed and strength allows her to run straight up walls and easily jump across rooftops.

    But when she's involved in a straight fight, she's an experienced hand-to-hand fighter, using a brawling style forged by the streets. She's also capable of using firearms and some melee weapons, but she much prefers to fight with her bare hands.

    Equipment: Cassidy carries a heavy pistol and a shotgun with her. She has a motorbike, as well - though a quite broken one.

    Backstory: Cassidy grew up in the vast slums of 2050's Seattle. Until she was about sixteen, she lived in constant poverty, and pickpocketed credsticks to survive. Then a fixer introduced her to shadowrunning, committing crimes for the megacorps of the world. Now she lives a live of high risk, high reward.

    Faction Post: Kris' Hell


    This is a subsection of The Hell of the Iron Queen, run jointly by Happyturtle and myself, and will be indexed as such (life is good when you're the master of the index ). This postly is mostly a way to help myself (and maybe others, but mostly myself) to keep track of all the various Hell bits I've introduced so far, mostly from the First and Second Circles as run by Morgana, Queen of Succubi, although I have some ideas for NPCs and such from other circles of Hell [in particular Circle Seven(?)] which may eventually sneak in here as well. Basically if it's played by Kid Kris, and has to do with that fiery pit down below, it's going to find its way here.

    Subtitles gogogo!

    Locations

    The First Circle
    Spoiler
    Show


    The First Circle of Hell is a blasted land, an endless sweeping, barren desert dotted here and there by the watchtowers of the devils who tend it. The First Circle is home to those who sinned in the name of Lust in life, and are punished for their deeds by being carried in endless torment upon the great sandstorms of the First Circle. The desert is broken up by the five great rivers of the Dead, the Acheron, Styx, Cocytus, Lethe and Phlegethon, which flow towards the center of the circle, where Castle Ashmedai can be found.

    Castle Ashmedai
    Spoiler
    Show
    The heart of the First Circle, Castle Ashmedai has been largely abandoned in favor of Lady Morgana's mobile clockwork fortress. However, the devils of the First Circle still hold residency here, and keep it up to its previous standard, even if it doesn't have the same energy it did in its glory days. General Ethuriel currently holds lordship over Castle Ashmedai and its inhabitants, having been appointed Regent of the First Circle in her absense.


    Both Castle Ashmedai and the Watchtowers dotting the First Circle are outfitted with various aircraft gantries, capable of servicing the airships, large and small, of the Mildly Dishonorable Airforce.


    The Clockwork Fortress
    Spoiler
    Show

    Lady Morgana's most ambitious design, the Clockwork Fortress is almost a plane of Hell unto itself, and is capable of moving between them with relative ease, thanks to the Soul Powered Dimensional Engine at its heart, which also gives it the ability to fly, and provides power to all its systems and weaponry.

    Quote Originally Posted by Description of the Clockwork Fortress
    The same dimensional cage technology that powers the yacht Decker is sitting in is clearly in evidence in the fortress, but on a hideously inflated scale. While the vortex to the rear of Decker's yacht could roughly squeeze into a small family living room, the vast engine at the heart of the Clockwork Fortress could comfortably swallow several apartment buildings without needing antacids of any sort. Massive arcs of solid bronze, each the size of a skyscraper, circle around the rolling dimensional vortex, the magically charged metal keeping its boundless infernal energies contained. Suspended around the central cage are twelve vast, gear-shaped rings of successively larger size, all at oblique angles to each other, slowly spinning around the central cage in graceful orbits. At a closer look, Decker will be able to see that each ring is actually a building of some description: balconies, outcroppings, and gantries of every sort emerge from the surface of each ring. Outside the twelve rings, there are six additional structures: six tall, pointed spires which hover over the center at right angles to each other. These spires, oddly enough, do not seem to orbit or even move at all, maintaining strict, cardinal positions from the center of the fortress, as if rooted in place by invisible bars.

    As the yacht passes by the outer spires and into the inner revolving mechanism of the fortress, Decker will note an odd, weightless sensation as the yacht slowly rotates in space. Upon fully passing through the threshold between the spires, Decker might notice that the yacht seems to be hanging sideways compared to the Second Circle, the horizon between black lake and reddish sky forming a vertical slash in Decker's vision. However, her sense of perception of 'up' and 'down' will have changed - traveling upwards will bring her to the center of the fortress, towards the spinning bronze cage with its spiraling maelstrom of infernal power, and going downwards will bring her away from the center. The yacht flies upwards, passing through the outer rings of the fortress until it reaches the fifth ring from the top and docks at a jutting gantry.

    The two robed incubi will get up and lead Decker back onto the deck of the yacht, extending the ramp out so that she can step out onto the ground. In front of her is the stone wall that marks the side of the massive ring she's standing on. Above, below, to her left, to her right, she'll see windows, balconies, more landings, all jutting out of the side of the ring. Far above her, the dimensional engine burns with a harsh red light, glowing like a second sun. And all around her, the other eleven rings, four smaller, seven larger, all orbiting in oblique paths.

    One incubus climbs back up the ramp, pulling it back onto the yacht, which quickly prepares to depart. The other will lead her off the landing and into the ring itself. The corridors inside are long, and richly decorated, with hanging lights and elaborate pillars and hangings. Though the effect is subtle, dampened by the sheer size of the ring, the corridors definitely seem to slope slowly upwards in both directions, taking Decker in a circular path around the ring. The incubus leads her on, much more swiftly and efficiently than the imps at Castle Ashmedai, bringing her through a few side doors and a single wide set of steps before they reach a wide set of solid gold double doors, each door forming half of a massive diabolical sigil. For now, however, the double doors have been flung wide open, allowing Decker a clear view of the room beyond, which the robed incubus will lead Decker into.

    Through the double doors is a huge, rectangular hall with high vaulted ceilings. On the walls, the spaces in between each pillar are occupied by giant painted panels, each panel a mural depicting scenes of various lusts, from wild, Boschesque fantasies, to more intimate couplings and concepts. At the foot of each pillar stands a tall, lean figure, exactly three meters tall, swathed entirely in hooded robes of deep crimson. They stand unnaturally still, featureless and weaponless, though it's clear that they are guards of some description.

    The floor of the room is bisected by a long red carpet, which leads to a colossal raised dais at the end of hall, constructed from stacked semi-circular terraces which stretch up halfway the height of the hall, with stairs leading up to the top. On either side of the carpet, the hall is littered with rugs and couches and cushions, occupied by scores of undressed or half-dressed people. Most are devils, of course, but there many mortals among them too: humans, elves, and other races, both male and female, but all highly attractive. Some merely lie, either sleeping or simply basking in the beauty and lustful atmosphere of the hall, but most seem too consumed by lust to rest, kissing or groping each other with wild abandon.

    The terraces of the dais too, are occupied with rugs and cushions and couches bearing more of the mortal and diabolical courtiers, engulfed in a passion that seems to intensify as they approach the top of the dais. At the top, set against the far wall of the room, is a curling sculpture, carved from stone and gilt and covered with ivory and opal and amethysts to resemble the mouth of a giant, glittering orchid, facing the rest of the room. Flanking the sculpture are two giant, obsidian-skinned devils, each over four meters tall, broad and muscular, wearing only a narrow white cloth that drapes from a cord tied around their waist to brush the floor by their feet. Between them, nestled in the mouth of the orchid itself, is Morgana herself, draped in a sheet of gold cloth and lounging against the cushioned surface of the bottom petal, which serves as her throne.

    The Clockwork Fortress


    The Clockwork Fortress is currently in place over the Second Circle.


    The Second Circle
    Spoiler
    Show

    The Second Circle of Hell is a massive, freezing lake, formed from the confluences of the five rivers of the previous circle, bordered by tall, forbidding moutains and broken by a scattered archipelago of islands made of the same. The Second Circle is home to those in life who took glory in pain, whether inflicting it or taking perverse delight in it, they now lie in freezing numbness just below the surface of the water, devoid of all feeling.
    Previously ruled by Semiazas, the Second Circle is now in a state of semi-anarchy after his death. Lady Morgana of the First Circle has claimed dominion over it, and rules much of the circle, but at least two other devils, Biela the Erinyes and Malach the Dominator, have disputed her rule, and cling tightly against her forces, Biela remaining in control of the mountains and islands away from the center of the plane, and Malach hiding in the ruined Fortress of Anguish. Rumor has it that these two loyalists are being supported by Archdevils from lower circles (in particular Lady Nemesis of the Seventh) who fear that Lady Morgana holding dominion over two circles of Hell sets a dangerous precedent that could threaten their own positions.

    The Fortress of Anguish
    Spoiler
    Show
    The heart of the Second Circle of Hell, the Fortress of Anguish was largely ruined in the wake of Semiazas' death. Still, it provides a useful base for Biela the Erinyes, a devil who opposes Morgana in her claim for ladyship over the Second Circle, and is currently under siege by the Clockwork Fortress.


    The Seventh Circle

    Spoiler
    Show
    The Seventh Circle of Hell encompasses the entire City of Dis, which is split up into three seperately walled rings, which deal with the punishment of different aspects of Pride. The Governer of Dis and Archdevil of the Seventh Circle is 'The Masked Lady', also known as Nemesis, though it is forbidden to speak her name within the circle, or by any of her servants. The City of Dis is a place of bureaucracy and petty backstabbing, with devils constantly seeking to improve their rank in the Circle's inner hierarchy.


    Military of Lady Morgana

    The Infernal Guard (First and Second Branches)
    Spoiler
    Show
    Morgana's branch of The Infernal Guard is commanded by General Barticuul, and operates primarily out of the Clockwork Fortress, with some forces stationed in Castle Ashmedai and in Morgana's holdings in the Second Circle. Presumably it consists of devils native to the First and Second Circles, along with maybe some Clockworks as well. Generally anything that is not specific to one of the other branches (like succubi and the First Circle) will fall under this banner.

    Shapers
    Spoiler
    Show
    The rank and file casters of Morgana's forces. Shapers seem to be split equally between actual devils and human cultists. Shapers typically wear red robes, though since Morgana has moved into the Second Circle, some of them have taken to self mutiliation and surgery, 'augmenting' their bodies with clockwork parts and weapons, becoming bent and twisted mockeries of their former selves. Shapers take care of the mundane magical needs of Morgana's forces, including making portals and maintaining communications, and they can also build and repair Clockworks.


    Imps
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Infernal Guard is likely to have at least some imps as part of its ranks. These weak devils generally act as scouts and skirmishers, lacking the power to be front line fighters.



    The Horde of Ecstasy
    Spoiler
    Show
    The troops of the First Circle of Hell are under the command of General Etheriel. They are based primarily in the First Circle, from Castle Ashmedai, but can be found on the Clockwork Fortress as well. Their full capabilties are unknown so far.

    Succubi/Incubi
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Succubi and Incubi of the First Circle take on the shape of incredibly attractive mortals with diabolical traits such as wings, horns, hooves and tails, though they can shift and hide these at will. All succubi and incubi possess shapeshifting abilities, capable of shifting their appearance even across the sexes, making the distinction between a 'succubus' and an 'incubus' somewhat pointless, though of course most devils of this sort will have their 'preferred' form, which they wear by default. Unlike the succubi and incubi of the demons, who use their allure to devour the souls of mortals, the succubi and incubi of the First Circle use their powers to tempt mortals into sin, using their sexuality to twist mortals into cruelty and evil so that their souls eventually end up in the fiery pit, fuelling the Devils' war efforts.
    All succubi and incubi (including half-devils, but not tieflings such as Kal) possess auras that make them more sexually attractive and desirable, with more powerful devils possessing more powerful auras, to the point where they can even begin to override sexual preferences, though this ability can be resisted by those strong of will, or touched by holy or demonic magic.
    Some succubi/incubi have shown the ability to create portals to and from the mortal realm, and more powerful succubi/incubi presumably have the power to manipulate and project hellfire, as Kal is able to with his gauntlets.



    The Clockwork
    Spoiler
    Show
    Most Clockwork soldiers in Morgana's army fall under the command of General Klank. Presumably non-Clockwork soldiers do not serve under him whatsoever, however some Shapers would be seen amongst Clockwork forces, to provide magical support, portalling, and repair. All of Morgana's clockworks are powered by the souls of the Damned, and are intelligent to some degree. Most are only capable of taking basic orders, some, like General Klank, are presumably fully sapient and capable of rational thought. The Clockwork are primarily based from the Clockwork Fortress, but Clockwork soldiers can be seen wherever Morgana's forces have control.

    Hunter-Killers
    Spoiler
    Show
    Powerful Clockwork soldiers used as bodyguards, and for... well... it says so right in the name. When not in combat, they typically conceal themselves in red cloaks, to hide their true nature. Typically 2.2 meters tall, they display some form of 'shapeshifting' ability, shifting their mechanical arms into claws or blades as the need arises, can reconstruct themselves after damage, and can even grow wings in order to fly. They are also capable of projecting hellfire from their extremities, presumably generated by the same damned souls that fuel them.


    Sentinels
    Spoiler
    Show
    Clockwork soldiers used as guards. They seem to share similar behavior to Hunter-Killers when idle, covering themselves in red cloaks to disguise their nature, even though they're almost three meters tall. Their combat capability is unknown so far, but presumably formidable, as they have been seen guarding Lady Morgana herself.



    The Legion of Pain
    Spoiler
    Show
    The troops of the Second Circle have split following Semiazas' death, but those who have accepted Lady Morgana as their leader follow the command of General Faceripper the Cruel. Little is known about their capabilities so far, however they presumably make use of the ferocious erinyes, those being who Semiazas claimed lordship over. They are primarily based in the Second Circle, of course, and those loyal to Morgana also operate from the Clockwork Fortress.


    The Mildly Dishonorable Airforce
    Spoiler
    Show
    Piloting fearsome soul-powered Clockwork machines are the ever faithful, ever cool in the face of danger, but Mildly Dishonorable Airforce, headed by General Percival Heatherington-Smythe Cumberbatch the Fifth. Little is known of their capability except that it presumably involves flying machines of some sort, and that they are primarily based from the Clockwork Fortress, and the watchtowers and gantries of the First Circle. The Demon Lord Pazuzu has apparently started construction of biplanes piloted by succubi to counter this threat, though whether this will be effective remains to be seen.


    Military of The Masked Lady


    The Infernal Guard (Seventh Branch)
    Spoiler
    Show
    Dis has a branch of the Infernal Guard. Yes. Though consisting largely of devils native to the Seventh Circle, it's likely going to be pretty much identical in arrangement and appearance to the Infernal Guard of other circles, and largely devoid of the prissiness and backstabbing of the other devils of the Seventh Circle. These guys are professionals, dammit!


    The Administration
    Spoiler
    Show
    The assorted rank and file minions of Dis, these range from ordinary diabolical clerks to powerful agents of the Seventh Circle, who enforce The Masked Lady's will inside the city and on other planes. The hordes under The Masked Lady are rife with rivalry and backstabbing. Every devil in The Administration holds a numerical ranking under The Masked Lady, and every devil wishes to improve that ranking, typically by any means that they can get away with, from blatant brownnosing to outright sabotage.

    Umbrella Men
    Spoiler
    Show
    The lowest tier of Seventh Circle agents licensed for extra-planar operations, these endless, faceless hordes serve as The Masked Lady's petty thugs, spies and messengers, and are frequent punching bags for Dis' senior Civil Servants. These devils all wear identical charcoal grey suits, ties, domino masks and umbrella masks, are none too intelligent, and typically appear slightly pudgy or out of shape. Their primary identifying feature and source of power are their charcoal grey umbrellas, which serve as effective weapons and defense, a basic means of transport, a storage area, and a means to communicate back and forth from Hell. They are not capable of independant extra-planar travel, and must rely on other devils to create portals for them, inevitably leading to the frequent case of an Umbrella Man somehow being stranded somewhere on the Mortal Realms, as part of a cruel practical joke.


    Faces
    Spoiler
    Show
    Due to her massive ego, The Masked Lady commonly refuses to show herself in person to any being she deems 'lesser' than herself. As such, when a situation requires her personal presense she often sends along one of her 'Faces' as a substitute. These high ranking devils, of which there are few, represent literal extensions of her will, and are expected to be treated with all the respect accorded to The Masked Lady herself. To insult a Face is to insult The Masked Lady, an action which typically has dire consequences. Faces, while direct representatives of The Masked Lady, are not bound by uniform or code, with the single exception of the domino mask that they wear on their face, as all members of The Administration do, and as such their appearances and abilities are as many and varied as there are Faces in existence.

    Though 'officially' Faces all hold the same rank, they are not immune to the rivalries of lesser devils, albeit a little more subdued and subtle as they fall under The Masked Lady's direct scrutiny, competing hotly for her personal favor, as opposed to a numerical rating.


    Major Characters

    Spoiler
    Show
    Lady Morgana, Mistress of Pain and Pleasure, Queen of Succubi - A Succubus Queen. Appears most often as a 'large' woman, as she would so regrettably be named by modern standards, though that label would do no justice to her broad curves and full figure that practically oozes fertility and sexuality, with skin the brown of cappuccino and hair the color of espresso (so I just really like coffee, okay? ) tumbling in ringlets down past her shoulders. Beauty of this magnitude (subtly enhanced, maybe, by the aura that all succubi share, only of course a bajillion times stronger) could wear anything, of course, and still look divine, but Morgana prefers to leave little to the imagination with a single white silk cloth draper over her (typically lounging) form. As of late, however, she has taken to wearing more restrictive and militant outfits, reflecting perhaps her shift in duties.
    Lady Morgana is the Archdevil-in-truth of the First Circle, and seeking to become so in the Second Circle as well, following Semiazas' passing, though her claim is, of course, hotly contested. Her seat in Castle Ashmedai is currently occupied by General Ethuriel, while her Clockwork Fortress currently hovers over the Second Circle.
    In addition to her regular powers, Lady Morgana is a mechanical genius, responsible for the design of most of the soul-powered technological marvels her forces employ, and which are traded to the other circles, and is the chief mind behind most of the more ambitious designs, like the Clockwork Fortress and massive airships of the Mildly Dishonorable Airforce.

    Picture:
    Spoiler
    Show


    Semiazas, Lord of Erinyes, King of Pain - An Archdevil. Once one of the most beautiful of angels, after his fall took to self mutilation and flagellation, giving him an ugly, flayed appearance with bony wings stripped of feathers and flesh permanently crevassed with bleeding wounds and welts. Once the Archdevil of the Second Circle, rather anti-climactically killed by Kris-the-Slayer and Pri, leaving his circle in ruins.

    Kal'selthezaar (Kal) - A tiefling. Grandson of Lady Morgana, consort to Lady Dekaros of the Sixth Circle. A PC, hence has a character sheet.

    General Barticuul - General of the Infernal Guard of the First Circle, and Acting General of the Infernal Guard of the Second Circle, until such a time when a suitable replacement can be found. Little is known of him.

    General Ethuriel - General of the Horde of Ecstasy. Little is known of him, though he is likely to be an Incubus of some form. Currently serving as Regent of the First Circle, due to Lady Morgana focusing her efforts on the Second.

    General Faceripper the Cruel - General of the Legion of Pain. Little is known of him, though apparently he has a reputation for liking kittens and eating ice-cream. Oh no wait, being cruel and ripping off faces.

    General Percival Heatherington-Smythe Cumberbatch the Fifth - General of the Mildly Dishonorable Airforce. Little is known of him.

    General Klank - General of The Clockwork. Little is known of him, but he is likely to be an intelligent clockwork of some sort.

    Bartuc - An Incubus of the First Circle. Appears as a slender male with pale skin, a ridiculously toned physique, elegant wings, graceful, backwards sweeping horns and blonde hair worn in spikes. Appears loyal to Kal. Not very good at making portals.

    Balthamel - An Incubus of the First Circle. Appears as a slender male with pale skin, a ridiculously toned physique, elegant wings, graceful, backwards sweeping horns and dark hair worn loose to the shoulders. Appears loyal to Kal. Apparently better at making portals than Bartuc.

    Biela the Erinyes - A devil who opposes Morgana, and claims succession to Semiazas as Archdevil of the Second Circle. It is rumored that she may be getting support from other Archdevils. Currently controls the Fortress of Anguish.

    Malach the Dominator - A devil who opposes Morgana, and claims succession to Semiazas as Archdevil of the Second Circle. It is rumored that he may be getting support from other Archdevils. Currently controls various islands and bordering mountains of the Second Circle.

    Nemesis, 'The Masked Lady', Governer of Dis - An archdevil. Famously refuses to appear in person to anyone but the Iron Queen herself, her own Faces, or, on rare occasions, other archdevils whom she holds in high regard, due to her own massive ego. Currently the Archdevil of the Seventh Circle.

    Ambrosius - An Incubus, and brother to Lady Morgana. Formerly a high-ranking devil in the First Circle, before moving to the Seventh Circle several hundred years ago for reasons (so far) unknown. Currently serves as a 'Face', or personal representative, of Nemesis.

    Jit Falnon

    Spoiler
    Show
    Alias : Jit (prefix letters mark his personal timeline, see later)
    Gender: Male
    Race: Psychic Terran
    Age: around 186 (ceased aging at 28)
    Alignment: CN, leans more towards good, but definitely not above getting his hands quite dirty.
    Training: Alliance Ghost program (assassination, firearms training, psiblade proficiency, minor psychic capabilities), Roman legion (swordsmanship and tactics), others not named (I'm thinking through feasible options)
    Power Rating : Quinsar Rating 4-6, Neon Knight C- through B. Jit's power level varies depending on where he is on his personal timeline.
    Description: Jit is a fairly tall human in his late 20s with brown hair and metallic eyes. His outfit is generally More along the lines of jeans, a cowboy hat, and a duster jacket, but if he is expecting a fight he'll change into his old Ghost body armor.
    Spoiler
    Show

    Jit By Ceika

    Personality: Jit is usually pretty carefree, but his personality does vary with his personal timeline (earlier in the timeline he's more aggressive, later he calms down, recent traumas may have effects, etc.)
    Known equipment:
    Box of money: contains thousands of currencies sorted by type, standard, and average tech level
    C-10 Canister rifle: Standard Ghost issue sniper rifle. In later periods, Jit has modifications for special ammo, such as psychically-based stun bullets or high explosive rounds, and has mods on the gun for a full auto mode.
    Psyblades: A modification from the Protoss weapons designed for use by Ghosts, these gauntlets are Jit's prized possessions. They create wrist blades of pure energy when in use, and Jit is very adept with them.
    Eye modifications: eyes have been cybernetically augmented, allowing them to function as cameras. Includes a zoom function.
    Belt of Wonder: Contains all of Jit's items, but he can only access up to three at a time.
    Abilities: Jit is a trained assassin at all times. As his timeline advances, his psychic powers also become consistently stronger.
    Chrono-dislocation: Jit randomly warps around in time and space, and even between dimensions. This means that he has frequently met people before they meet him, and vice-versa. This is the reason for the references to Jit's "personal timeline". This is based off of what he has experienced since his first time warp.
    Immortality: as part of his chrono-dislocation, Jit cannot die. However, if he is mortally wounded, he passes out and wakes up somewhere/sometime else. Generally, the results of these trips are quite nasty, and can include short-term amnesia.
    Weaknesses: Jit's greatest weakness is his condition. If he is near a strong source of time energy (time machines that are turned on, etc.), it will overload and generally do one of three things: 1. explode, 2. Send him off somewhere random, or 3. both.
    Backstory: Jit was born in the Korprulu Sector and was engulfed in the Great War. His parents were born on Korhal, and were Mensk loyalists, so when Raynor's Raiders began to fight back, Jit left home and joined the resistance. After the War, Jit joined the Alliance, composed of Terran and Protoss leaders. There, his psychic potential was discovered and he entered the Ghost program. After a few months, though, he vanished. He soon discovered that he was being thrown about in the time space continuum. He would vanish, and reappear at random. Every time, a seemingly random item would come with him, such as his psiblade gauntlets, which were in his quarters. His rifle and ghost armor also came along, since he was carrying them. He found himself in a high fantasy world, where he acquired his belt. Since, he has never been in the same place for more than 6 months at a time.
    Note: because of Jit's condition of chronological displacement, at any given time he may or may not know things about characters that he hasn't met in posting. That's because he meets them in their future, which is his past. The reverse is also true, where Town characters meet him in their past, which is his future.
    In another dimension known as the Town (yes, it still exists independently), Jit aided in the process of closing a hell portal opened several years ago. In the process, and demon child drained some of his energy. When the child's other half arrived and recombined to become whole again, she introduced herself as Danae. Then it turned out that draining his energy had afflicted her with the chrono-dislocation. Then they arrived in the Nexus.
    Different Jits: because Jit's time warp is random, I'll include prefixes to mark what he looks like. Without any prefix letter, assume the standard.
    fJit: Feral Jit, one of the earliest in the timeline, fJit has only been time warping for about 20-30 years. He recently was the subject of an experiment that causes him to turn into a feral creature in response to pain. fJit's clothes are battered and torn, his hair is shaggy, he is usually barefoot, and closer inspection reveals that he has brown eyes instead of the cybernetic ones of later Jits. When injured, his eyes get a feral gleam and he loses control, attacking with a full set of energy claws (wolverine meets red lightsaber). Also, fJit has outstanding regenerative capabilities, also as a result of the experimentation.
    oJit: Old Jit is one of the latest in Jit's timeline I intend to use. The main distinguishing feature of oJit is that he has a small streak of grey in his hair. He is the least aggressive and most informed about his condition, and is fairly close to understanding it.


    Danae

    Spoiler
    Show
    Alias: None, yet/Too many to count
    Gender: female
    Race: Sucurine (succubus-eyrines hybrid)
    Age: mid teens, can appear at any age, usually looks around 8
    Alignment: CN, mostly
    Class basics : Rogue and bard qualities
    Power Rating: Quinsar 3-4, Neon Knight D
    Description : As a shapeshifter, Danae can change her appearance to fit her needs, but she usually appears as an 8-year old girl with flaming red hair and fair skin. Sometimes she'll add horns or a tail. I have an avatar around somewhere, but am too lazy to find it.
    Personality: For her age, Danae is very grown up. This is mostly because she retains the memories of the evil side of her during the split. Pro parenting tip: An army of demons/devils is not a good place for a young girl. She is incredibly flirtatious (mostly the result of her heritage), and enjoys making people uncomfortable by being incredibly flirtatious while looking like an 8-year old.
    Equipment: A dagger that seems to be bound to her. She's not sure how, but she always has it on her.
    Magic Bag of Invisibility: A Bag of Holding, but better and invisible.
    The Visage of Xn-Kxrlth: Apparently the repository of all knowledge. No that she knows how to work it, but eventually she'll work it out. For now it's just a kind of cool mask in her magic bag of invisibility. Acquired from a Rebonack Random Encounter (TM) (which should explain everything)
    Abilities: Danae is a shapeshifter, and can take any humanoid form without difficulty. She's also trained herself to be able to take nonhumanoid forms, though these put her under a lot of strain and cannot be maintained for long. These are actual changes in form, not illusions.
    Weaknesses: Not too fond of silver, cold iron, holy water, or excessive religion.
    Backstory: Danae is E's granddaughter. Her mother, Rebecca, used her as a sacrifice to open a hellgate in the sewers of the Town. This split her into good and evil parts, with the evil part trapped in hell. When Jit and his companions went to close the portal, the evil part absorbed some of Jit's energy, and his condition along with it. Then, after Jit disabled the evil side, her good side woke up and went to recombine with the evil. Now she's whole again, and stuck wandering through time and space with Jit.
    Speech patterns:
    Regular is her normal speech (adult tone, volume, and general speech pattern)
    Courier New font means that she is playing the part of the 8-year old she usually looks like (more of a childish tone and speech pattern)


    Mark

    Alias: none
    Gender: Male
    Race: Human-Timelord hybrid (It's weird)
    Age: roughly 230 (Or -99,999,770 if you're going off of date of birth)
    Alignment: CG (his heart is in the right place, but he's willing to use some extreme measures)
    Class/Profession: Jiggery-pokerymancer (he's basically a tinker that can do a few things that the laws of physics/time and space say he shouldn't be able to)
    Power Level: Naturally on the high end of human, but is a skilled pilot of machines (therefore the details depend on if/what he's piloting)
    Abilities: Nearly everything a Timelord can do, but lacks regeneration and double hearts. Also cannot survive outside of Martin due to modification made to allow him to pilot the cyber. This has been fixed.
    Items: various gizmos, and a Jacket of Bottomless Pockets to store them in. Very few direct weapons, fewer that work, and even fewer that work on humanoids
    Description: To come, see image
    Spoiler
    Show

    Image shamelessly stolen from Who (Mark is a clone of one of his characters, he's on another forum)

    Backstory: About 100 million years in the Town's future, Who's TARDIS landed and the Timelord fell out of it, human. He had changed his nature using a Chameleon arch to try and stop a poison that was destroying his mind. It failed, but the future Town scinetists were able to secure a sample of his DNA and the watch that contained his Timelord essence and memories. After the poison killed Who, they cloned him, and exposed the clone, Mark, to the watch. The results were mixed. Mark obtained all of the memories regarding the Timelord culture and technological advances, but had absolutely minimal access to Who's actual memories of how he learned these things (Imagine it as Mark has memorized a book written by Who tat contains the entire sum of Who's non-personal fact knowledge). Mark then spent the next 230 years working with Who's TARDIS, ultimately building the Town's emergency evacuation device, which he named Martin, around the TARDIS. Mark solved the issue of nesting before doing this. Then, two years ago, a number of scientists released the plague virus known as Chimera. Mark was utlimately forced to flee with no one else, and had to figure out how to pilot Martin without the 80 person crew it was designed for. With the help of Martin, Mark was able to design a chemical that made his vital functions run with no attention from his mind, allowing him to simply plug into the control interface. The drawback is that now Mark cannot survive without the chemical, which can only be produced by Martin, and which is consumed too rapidly for a portable source to be viable.
    After Martin was able to isolate Chimera's intelligence and put it into a human vessel, the robot and the pilot got into an argument, which ended in Mark getting teleported through dimensions into an alternate Town the Nexus. He's a little bitter about that.
    Personality: Mark is pretty cheerful, and definitely fits the absent minded scientist (he nearly forgot to reactivate the life support once). He hates Chimera with a passion for destroying his home.


    Anastram Gryphonclaw
    Spoiler
    Show
    Alias: Anastram, The Blade of the Eternal Lady
    Gender: Formerly male, technically eunuch (skeleton)
    Race: awakened orc skeleton
    Alignment: LN. Anastram's morals are strongly aligned with those of his patron, Wee Jas (modified from the standard DnD goddess)
    Class: Soulknife/Kensai. Anastram as mastered his mind blade as his signature weapon, making it one of the most powerful weapons in his world
    Power rating: 6 or A-. Anastram is quite legendary in his homeworld, although that is mostly due to the fact that magic weapons are very rare, and between his power as a Soulknife and as a Kensai his mind blade is around +18 equivalent
    Description: Anastram is a skeleton. He is a very large skeleton for a humanoid, standing on the high end of 6'7". His armor consist of a breastplate of highly enchanted mithril. He wears a black cloak embroidered with the holy symbol of Wee Jas, which has also been pressed onto his armor. His gloves are a supple red leather, as are his boots. His helm leaves open the facial structure of his skull, but is otherwise fairly simple. His mind blade (when in use) is an orange katana made of pure psychic energy.
    Personality: Anastram has been around for centuries, but died when he was in his early 30s. As a legendary warrior, he can be arrogant at times, but his most defining characteristic is his unwavering loyalty to his patron, the goddess Wee Jas. He believes it was her magic that brought him back as an awakened skeleton, rather than one of the mindless rabble, and would gladly lay down his unlife for her in thanks for the many extra years she granted him. He has no fear of losing his unlife, since he has had many centuries to make peace with the fact that his awakening was a blessing that will end some day, and he therefore fights with little restraint and much joy.
    Equipment: Anastram's breastplate is heavily enchanted and made of mithril, making it very light and unrestrictive. His cloak enhances his personality, as well as aiding him in defense against magic(DnD combo charisma and resistance). His boots enhance his speed and mobility greatly (DnD levitation, striding and springing, and winged), while his gloves aid his reflexes and each contain an enchanted tile that heals him when broken (DEX, arrow catching, and storage [2 Enchanted Tiles of Harm]).
    His mind blade is his most starling trait. While most mind blades are a glowing green, undeath has had a strange interaction with Anastram's mind blade. It now burns a flaming orange, and is very strongly enchanted with a variety of abilities, which Anastram can change with an hour of meditation.
    Abilities:
    Mind Blade: Anastram can form his mind blade (usually in the form of a katana, wielded 2-handed) at will, and can charge it with psychic energy to cause extra damage
    Power Surge: Anastram's conviction and focus allows him to call upon the strength of his mind to empower his blows. He can occasionally strike with enhanced brutality for a short time, though this grows harder the more he does it without resting his mind.
    Eternal Preservation: Anastram's service to Wee Jas has not gone unrewarded. She has blessed him with one of her greatest boons, Eternal Preservation. If he is destroyed, his body will reanimate within the next week. If it is destroyed, his body will be reconstructed in the nearest graveyard, but this takes closer to a month.
    Notes: Anastram is from a homebrew world made by my cousin. In this world, there are no outer planes, so the gods live on the Material, which is made up of many planetoids bound together by chains. The gods are also unaligned. Instead, the represent an ideal. Wee Jas was originally the wife of Nerull and they together represented the ideal of inevitability (usually of death/taxes). At some point, something (undisclosed for plot reasons), she had a change of heart, left Nerull, and became the goddess of the ideal that some things must be preserved forever. To this end, she founded Necropolis, an undead city (usually he's better with original names).
    The other part of it is that magic is nearly restricted to gods. Outside of the gods and a very select number of mortals, only quasi-magic/psionic classes (rangers, paladins, soulknives, psychic warriors, etc) exist
    Oh, and dwarves don't exist, so he mixed their fluff into orcs. Orcs in this world are more of a cross between Elder Scrolls orcs and DnD dwarves than DnD orcs.
    Backstory: Anastram was born under a different name. He doesn't remember it, and he doesn't care. When he died, he was brought back, but for some reason, he wasn't mindless like his comrades. It took him several decades to become accustomed to unlife, but when he did he became a loyal servant of Wee Jas. Through many adventures, he rose through the ranks until eventually becoming her personal champion and agent. He came to the Nexus on a fluke, when a portal to the Far malfunctioned and sent him spiraling across the dimensional boundaries. His link to Wee Jas is weakened by the great distance, but it is still enough for him to make contact with her in places where the planar/dimensional boundary is weak (read: the whole bloody Nexus) and for her power to keep him from passing on completely (usually Eternal Preservation prevents him from being destroyed)
    Notes: as an undead, Anastram is simply immune to many effects, so don't think I'm godmodding if some of your abilities simply fail.
    When he communes with Wee Jas, she will speak in bolded dark red

    Syela Rodis

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Half human/satyr.

    Age: 18

    Profession: Apprentice alchemist

    Description:
    Syela is a young half satyr woman with caucasian/african features. She's average in height and has fully, slightly chubby figure. Her hair is brown and very curly. Her skin is a lighter brown and her eyes are green with horizontal pupils. She has a pair of short horns and goat-like ears. Her clothing is often flattering and intended to show off in some way.

    Personality:
    Syela is an intelligent, studious person. She's inquisitive and pushes herself to learn new things. Outside of that she can often come across as flippant. Insults tend to hit her especially hard and she doesn't react to them well; especially those relating to her heritage. She has a bit of a manipulative streak.

    Abilities:
    Syela possesses no noteworthy abilities.

    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Syela was the product of a union between a peasant woman and a satyr. She grew up without knowing her father, and her mother refused to tell her anything about him. The signs of his heritage were clear, however, and the other children in her village would often treat her with cruelty. Even some of the adults would say hurtful things.

    Syela had quite an interest in education where most people were not. She took to spending much of her time with the local alchemist. He'd often allow her to observe him and had her fetch things for him. She even learned to read, a rarity among those in the village.

    One day she decided to leave home. Even she's not sure why. Partially frustration, partially wanderlust, she just knew she needed to go. It didn't take her too long to find herself in the Nexus.

    That follows the cleric,
    That serves the lich,
    That seeks the gate,
    That guards the snarl,
    That lives in the prison the gods built.


    guess what I was gone but now I'm back

    Salix

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Weeping Willow Dryad, Goddess of Eve

    Age: 11

    Profession: N/A

    Description:
    Salix is a young dryad girl with south american features. She's tall for her age and has a slender build. Her hair is ankle length, leafy willow branches. Her skin is a darker brown and her eyes are green. She often wears whatever clothes she's given, and tends to make a mess of them.

    Personality:
    Salix is a fiercely independent child. She never wants the help of adults, though she'll agree to a lot if she thinks it's her idea. She really enjoys the company of others when she gets it, but she's perfectly content being on her own too. She's incessantly cheerful and it's hard to find her without a smile on her face.

    Abilities:
    Child of the Forest - As a dryad, the natural world seems to subtly bend to Sakura's will. Otherwise inanimate plants will help her along her way, animals will act as her friend, and both are easily encouraged by her words and touch.

    Maiden - Syela is a minor god. She holds the domain of the Maiden, the first of three phases of her godhood.

    Backstory:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Salix was born from her tree that can be found some small distance from the Good League of Good. She's lived her entire short life there with only occasional interaction with other people. Much of her companionship has come from a warren of rabbits that lives near her tree.

    Asenath


    Aliases: N/A
    Gender: Female
    Species: Altered Human
    Profession: None
    Power Rating: Unknown

    Description: Asenath appears as a young woman wearing a tattered beige robe with its sleeves torn off. The robe reaches down to just above her ankle, and is ragged at the edges. She also wears worn leather sandals of an older style, which have straps bound almost up to the knee. Cream colored bandages are wrapped over her entire left arm, her right hand, around the ankle and foot of her left leg, and over her left eye. Small, flat, rectangular copper charms are tucked carefully into the bandages, each one bearing a crude pictogram on it.

    She has long white hair, usually a little tangled, and very lightly colored eyes. This, in combination with her extraordinarily pale skin, seems to indicate albinism. She is about 5'7" tall (170cm), and is thin and lacking in both muscle and fat.

    Personality: Asenath is a bit awkward and perhaps a little archaic, and prone to ignoring or trying to repress emotions and memories that she dislikes. However, she tries to be polite and friendly, and frequently acts off of hunches, instinct, and impulses, as she is missing much of her memory; because of this, she often ends up in unusual situations or talking to people she doesn't quite fit in with.

    Equipment: Asenath is incredibly poor at the moment, only owning what she carries on her.

    Abilities: While she can't recall any training or skills she might have, Asenath is no longer human, and does derive some benefits from her change in nature. She no longer eats, drinks, sleeps, or breathes as a human would, though it is inaccurate to say she eschews those functions entirely. While she does not eat regularly or often, she sometimes experiences cravings for strange substances. Water does not appear to be as vital to her as it would be for a human, but she does still thirst every so often, even if she can go for long periods without. While she does not sleep, she does find that she benefits from a more dormant state, and flashes of her memories are more vivid and strange during those times.

    Backstory: Unknown. Asenath recalls little, and what she does recall, she is reluctant to share in its entirety. What is known thus far is that the bandages she wears covers a condition that was inflicted upon her, though she is unsure of the circumstances during which it occurred.

    Aeia

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Eucalyptus Dryad

    Age: 16, fully mature, ageless.

    Profession: N/A

    Description: Aeia has very light, almost white, skin that looks somewhat like it's made of wood. Her hair is made up of a mass of eucalyptus leaves that reach just a bit past her shoulders. Her eyes are a dark green and her ears are quite long and pointed. Aeia is very skinny and has small breasts and fairly narrow hips. She wears a tanktop and short shorts, leaving a lot of skin showing overall.

    Avatars:
    Spoiler
    Show
    By Myself:

    Personality: Aeia is the type of person to not content herself with the same old thing from day to day. She's always seeking new experiences and new places to see. It makes her a bit flighty, as she's not one to tie herself down. She's quite impatient and needs to keep herself entertained.

    Equipment:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Equipped:
    • A small silver-wood ring with a smooth oval ruby in the center. In the middle of it is a small swirling cloud of light, almost exactly like a nebula. Marks her engagement to Justinian.
    • A copper flame symbol hanging from a chain around her neck. Given to her by Justinian before he had to leave her.
    • A fur lined cloak.

    Inventory:

    Stash:

    Abilities: She has a few abilities granted by her heritage. She can manipulate plants in many ways. She can speak to plants. She can also enter a tree and emerge from another, even over great distances, as long as she's touched the tree before.

    Backstory: Aeia spent most of her life near her tree which was thankfully located near a small town. She was able to entertain herself with the various people that would pass by, but she always wished she could roam further than she was capable of.

    One day a wizard took an interest in her tree. It was one of few livewood trees, meaning it would live despite being cut down. So the tree was taken and Aeia right along with it. He had intentions of experimenting on her and he actually crafted her tree into a sapient construct, Bark. They managed to escape after messing with some magic scrolls and being transported into the Nexus.

    Miscellaneous: She has to remain within a moderately large distance of Bark or she will become sick and die after a few hours. Taking a small piece of him allows her to be away from him for a while, though not for an extended period of time.

    Mimi Bloodfang

    Gender:

    Species: Pixie

    Age: 26

    Profession: Hunter

    Appearance:
    Mimi is a young pixie woman with caucasian features. She's miniscule in height, though tall for a pixie, and has a narrow, leanly muscular figure. Her hair is a short, messy mop of brown. Her skin is a light brown and her eyes are darker brown. On her back are large, green moth wings that allow her to fly. On her head are a pair of fuzzy antenna and she has pointed ears. She's often carelessly dressed with whatever strikes her fancy in the moment.



    Personality:
    Mimi doesn't like things to be complex and has a very direct approach to problem solving. She's strong willed and very reluctant to show any signs of weakness, even when faced with challenges that she is in no way prepared to handle. She's fearless when it comes to many things, except perhaps when it comes to dealing with the more complex emotions. She's far more prone to the more simplistic emotions. It's hard to keep her down for long; she'll always get back up no matter what kind of hardship she faces. She may not be educated, but she's a quick learner and quite clever. She has a hard time being still, or being inactive in general.

    Abilities:
    Hunter - While small in size, Mimi is still a practiced hunter and is capable of taking down prey many times her size. She employs her speed and maneuverability to jab her mark with her spear in vulnerable areas. The trick is wearing down and outlasting her prey.

    Pixie Dust - Mimi can produce a fine powder commonly known as pixie dust. It's applications are too numerous to count, but it can be summed up in that it manipulates what it's applied to for a limited time. These effects are always temporary and can be quite significant. That said, she can't change one item entirely into another or do other effects are the too drastic.

    Nanohealing - Riss implanted a nanomachine in her bone just past her elbow. They make her healing much more rapid. Grievous wounds take mere weeks to heal, and it only improves from there. Even limbs can be regrown in months.

    History:
    Mimi was born in the Nexus itself, though far from the civilized portions. Her clan was found at the edge of the dangerous Weald. Her people were hunters and gatherers, strong and resilient for their small size. Mimi especially was a skilled hunter, fierce and determined in all thing. Of course, that was expected from the daughter of their leader.

    There's little chance that Mimi would follow after her mother, though. While strong, she's not one to think too far ahead or worry about the big picture. That's fine by her, as she'd much rather forge her own path.

    Mathias Fellblade



    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Male

    Race: Angel (Fallen)

    Age: Many millenia

    Profession: Ex-Angel of Vengeance, currently seeking redemption

    Description: He has long, white hair and his face, once golden and wondrous to behold, is now ashen and pale, as if he spent the last century devoid of sunlight.

    His once resplendant armour is now black and grey, his angelic wings tattered and all but incapable of flight. His sword is long and serrated.

    Picture coming soon.



    Personality:

    As a former Angel of Vengeance, Mathias is quick to anger and often the first to enter a fight. However, he has a strong sense of duty and a burning desire to rid Nexus of evil in all its forms.

    Mathias is (or was) regarded by other angels as "strangely human"; prone to emotion-spurred acts seen as outrageous by other angels. In fact, it was these "human" emotions that led to his downfall.




    Background:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mathias was once a powerful angel who hunted evil across Nexus and brought them to the Gods' court for judgement. One particularly sinister hunt, however, would lead to his downfall.

    His target was a cruel lord of Acro, who ruled with a iron fist. What exact horrors lay within the lord's halls, none can say for certain, but they were so great that the great angel chose to forgo the court and instead impose his own judgement.

    Casting the tyrant into the depths of Hell, Mathias turned to slaughter the king's followers down to the last man. It was then the Gods took notice of the wayward angel and cast him down, sentencing him to wander the same world that he had been sworn to protect.

    Stripped of his holy powers, left with no companions but his tattered wings, sword, and combat prowess, Mathias fights for his salvation, his objective one that can never be truly completed: to forever rid Nexus of evil.

    Still, it is an objective Mathias believes can be completed. He clings to the faint, desperate hope that he can truly eliminate evil from the world so that he can reclaim his position as the Gods' Right Hand.



    Hopefully I didn't make him too overpowered? Let me know if he needs to be nerfed

    Alias: Just call him Oliver
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 35
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Class/Profession: Test Jet Pilot/ Navigator (Genius)
    Power Rating: As a person, D. However, his inventions are on a case by case business.
    Description: A blonde-haired caucasian of medium height that usually wears a pilot's jacket and aviator's shades.
    Personality: Bold, daring, reckless, and impatient, Oliver's always on the go.
    Equipment: Currently has a car at his house that has a hover and a submersible mode. Other than that, he has a recoiless pistol enhanced due to mad scienced with an Exelixi upgrade.
    Abilities: Due to being a former Air Force pilot, he has all the associated skills. Also, being a genius, he has an extensive knowledge of mad science that is natural to all Genii. He also has (which comes with being a genius) basic knowledge of how to operate any non Mania-enhanced vehicle. He is especially skilled with any form of vehicle and/or upgrades, being skilled particularly with the axioms of Katastrophi, Apokalypsi, Skafoi, and Exelixi. However, all of his inventions (wonders) fail to work when being touched by a regular mortal, at best just plain not working and at worst exploding violently or becoming orphans (rogue wonders, though some may be benevolent if they are autonomous and have a notion of morality).
    Backstory: To come later.

    Lenny R. Oast


    Lenny avatar by Mathias2207 (thanks brah)


    Alias: None

    Gender: Male

    Race: Elf

    Age: 22

    Alignment: Somewhat Chaotic Evil

    Class: Fire Mage

    Power Ranking: 8

    Description: Lenny is very tall, and well fit. He has short, coal-black hair and a large scar across his right cheek. He walks around in a red t-shirt and jeans.

    Personality: Lenny is a jerk to anyone he doesn't respect (which is pretty much everyone) and doesn't care about anyone's feelings. He says what he wants, and does what he wants. Basically, he's just an *******.

    Equipment: He has firecrackers, B-B-Q sauce, and most notably he almost always carries around a large chunk of meat he eats all day.

    Backstory: Lenny is Hoffy's older brother. Growing up together, the two were constant rivals. Lenny was stronger, faster, more talented, and 5 years older than Hoffy. Even so, Hoffy was way smarter than him and always ended up winning the fights they always had somehow. Lenny had a strong gift with the element of fire, so his parents sent him away to a special school for gifted children around the time Hoffy was banished. He used his incredible gift to use and take advantage of the other students. After graduating the top of his class, Lenny returned home. One day, he overheard the village elders saying Hoffy is much more serious threat, and banishment was too soft of a punishment. Lenny personally volunteered to bring Hoffy back for further punishment. He's been chasing him across the world ever since. Failing to catch him time and time again, he now spends most of his time using people and various criminal activities.

    After both kids were gone, Lenny's parents started a potion shop. It eventually grew and became the number one shop in the business, making his parents one of the most richest in Nexus. His parents were murdered one day, leaving all the cash to Lenny making him filthy rich. No one knows who murdered them. Some evidence points to Lenny, but not enough to tie him to the crime.

    Alice Q



    Alias: Miss Q
    Gender: Female
    Race: Human
    Age: Around 23, although she's not sure what her age is exactly.
    Alignment: Neutralish Goodish
    Profession: Currently, a saleswoman.
    Power Rating: E+, I think. Basically an average human in combat, with no crazy abilities or magic powers. No, seriously.
    Description: Alice is slightly taller than average, and very thin. Her skin is unusually pale, almost as if she is ill in some way. Despite this, she would probably be considered pretty by most people, if not beautiful. She has long, straight black hair, usually not very tidy. Her eyes are a vibrant green. She usually wears a white dress, and is rarely seen without her battered black top hat. She seems to favor her left arm, as if it is damaged in some way, although the only difference that can be seen is that it is slightly paler than her right. It is, in fact, the fifth arm that she has had, and hopefully it will be the last.
    Personality: Constantly filled with wonder by her surroundings, Alice is filled with enthusiasm and the joy of living. She does have some odd habits, true(such as her sometimes bizarre logic, and her tendency to overreact to situations), but her general outlook is quite sunny. In addition, she has an annoying selflessness, as if she cares more about others than herself. What a strange person!
    Equipment: Not much. Well, her top hat deserves mentioning. Although perfectly serviceable as a hat, it is much bigger on the inside, containing an extrademensional space perfect for storing objects of all sorts. Think Hat of Holding. She doesn't use the hat to show off, so even her closest friends usually have no idea what it can do.
    Also, various bits and bobs contained in said hat, most of which don't deserve mentioning.
    Backstory: To come later. It's a lot creepier than one would think.

    Gelley 792

    Pronounced Jell-ay


    Alias: Divebomb

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Cyborg Human

    Age: Younger than her sisters Fettina and Naitiri.

    Alignment: No thanks.

    Class/Profession: Varies every few months or so. Currently, superheroine.

    Power Rating: Probably a solid B.

    Description: Standing here is a short, stocky, vivacious young lady, her skin dark and her eyes bright. When I say stocky, I mean the basic definition: she's of a broad, sturdy build. She's possessed of long, thick, dark hair, like a series of smooth electrical cords that actually spark and flash. They're close to dreadlocks, actually - a very large set of dreadlocks. She typically wears fashionable, somewhat revealing clothes.

    On to her alter ego's outfit. It seems to be armor, at first glance - steel plates overlapping all down her front and back, then dangling in a metal 'waistcloth' between her hips. Her legs follow suit, with armor on two sides, but it all seems to be merely cosmetic. Her flanks are entirely naked. Purple tattoos, elaborate circles building up to fantastic structures, are inked into her blue skin there.

    Gelley's visor, much like her armor, only covers half of her face. The visor itself consists of a slim blue line, made of glass, and a metal frame that encircles her head. Where the visor covers her forehead, an emblem of a burning blue rocket is embedded.

    Equipment: When out and about in citizen clothing? Rather little. Gelley typically carries a purse with her, which contains little to no make-up material (augs are there for a reason), a little bag of trail mix, her phone, a very broad-toothed comb, a thick 'scrunchy' for her hair, and a few other minor items.

    When out saving people, she has little beyond her 'armor'.

    Abilities: Self-propelled rocket jumps and near flight are the most prominent ones. The armor Gelley wears isn't purely cosmetic - it attaches to her body and the ridges fold different directions, allowing for controlled bursts of heat to propel herself through the air. She possesses near invulnerability due to a tight-range forcefield and regenerative properties for her mostly artificial skin. Her muscles and joints are reinforced enough to withstand several thousand pounds of lifted material, so she's also quite strong.

    Perhaps other cybernetic powers. Her visor has an extensive scanning system, for blood, heat, motion, and other things.

    Backstory: Gelley came from a rich and powerful family, especially given the post-apocalyptic setting of their world. Her parents - a doctor and a drunk only ever had three children, all girls. Gelley was always a curious and excitable child, and so she became as an adult.

    Due to a lack of attention from her parents, Gelley leaned heavily on her sisters, more heavily than either of them. However, unlike the younger Fettina, she outgrew that need for attention and dependence on others. With a combination of differing opinions and some very bad habits on Tina's part, the rift between them grew until they were hardly speaking.

    Gelley set to travelling, exploring the many options for her career. Zoologist, biologist, explorer, adventurer, boxer, and a two dozen others. When she got a vid-message from Tina - something about a 'Nexus' - Gelley became intrigued. She'd been looking for a more free, vigilante-tolerant city to take her latest shot at greatness. She wants to be a hero. A champion of good and a beacon of power. With some of the most dangerous, expensive human augmentations available to the public, and some less than legal cybernetics, Gelley has become Divebomb. At least, that is the working title.

    Age: Equivalent in human: 37

    Alignment: If it gives me followers, power, or money, yes.

    Class: Warlord/Arcane Fighter

    Rank: C.

    Description: This drow is thin, almost lanky, but very wiry. His eyes, glowing green in color, are almost dodgy most of the time. He tends on the side of paranoia, but he is rather charismatic. He likes impressing people with his skill. A quirk of his advanced mind is that he enjoys any kind of competitive games that rely on tactics. His skin is pure black, a sure sign of drow nobility where he comes from. He wears a typical leather suit of armor, with a hidden suit of chain-and-plate mail underneath. His neck is encircled by a silverlike torc with a spider and runes on it.

    Personality: Somewhat aloof, but very charming if he wants to be. A little sinister, but that must just be because he's a drow. He has an aura of competence. He, to his rare real friends, is fanatically loyal. He also enjoys spicy food and good drink a bit overmuch.

    Equipment: A suit of fiend-forged armor, thirteen daggers stashed various places in his clothing, a thin but strong sawtoothed scimitar with demonic traits, and a torc that allows him to cast webs at people.

    Backstory: In a world like Faerun, the drow were the ultimate warriors. They rose from the Underdark and slew the surface peoples and enslaved them. He was a minor noble, of the once-favored house Várn, the former drow royalty that were deposed for being kind to the surface-dwellers. He had a few followers, very loyal to him. Nobody expected much from a kid genius.
    He rose in a bloody war that made frequent use of smear tactics, hit and run and martyrage, destroying the houses of nobility one by one with ruthlessness. He hated how they gloated over intelligent, suffering beings.
    The last house was ten times as powerful as his, and his house was destroyed. He escaped into a mysterious rift to try and rebuild a resistance to the drow empire, and to free all the other races. And found himself in the Nexus.

    Pavati

    Alias: N/A

    Gender: Female

    Race/Species: Selkie

    Age: 20

    Profession: N/A

    Description: She's fairly small and plump. Her skin is a grey-brown with a scattering of light spots down her back and the backs of her arms. Atop her head is a mop of dark brown hair that hangs down a bit past her shoulders. Curiously, she doesn't appear to have legs. Instead of legs, her lower body widens a bit and has the tail flippers of a sea lion.

    Pavati has quite large eyes for her face, and the whites are only visible in the very corners. Sticking out to either side from her eyebrows are three long and ridged hairs and several smaller similar ones; Sort of like whiskers. Her lips are somewhat thin and her nose is small and round. Her fingers are webbed and tipped with claws. Her only clothing consists of a few modern style tops.

    Personality: Pavati is a very friendly individual. She's bubbly and perhaps a bit ditsy. It's hard to keep her spirit down, even at the worst of times; She's an eternal optimist. Crude advances from men are bound to leave her mildly angry, while on the other hand, a charmer is sure to catch her interest.

    Equipment:

    Equipped:
    • Some special gloves to protect her hands while she's pulling herself around on land.

    Inventory: Small bag
    • A small ivory horn, with a thin gold band wrapped around halfway along it. When blown it summons Ithuriel to her side.

    Stash:

    Abilities: Pavati possesses no noteworthy abilities.

    Backstory: Pavati comes from a small tribe of selkies that live in an ocean in the Nexus. She took an interest the land beyond the beaches one day when observing a group of "land people". After some time she decided to act on her curiosity and travel inland to explore. It was perfect timing, as she was starting to get fed up with the frequent and crude advances she'd been receiving do to it being mating season.

    Miscellaneous: N/A

    Emmi

    Avatar by Gulghar.

    Real Name and Aliases: Emily Dickinson Aramil; Beautiful M.E.

    Race: Urban Elf

    Age: 16

    Profession: Artist

    Description: A sixteen year old girl with curly brown hair. She has elf-like ears but how elf factors into her heritage is currently undecided. She mostly wears rainbow and tie-dye colored shirts. She's also always in reach of her headphones and her bright red roller skates.

    Personality: Friendly as they come, Emmi takes the most pleasure in bringing her special definition of beauty to the world, this mostly involves using grafitti to brighten up otherwise drab or depressing streets. She loves bright colors, fast music, and roller skating, all three luckily come together in her chosen "career path" as a graffiti artist. She's a hippie at heart, inspired by her mother's activism. She's an environmentalist, a pacifist, and a vegetarian. She's considered veganism, but has no intent on giving up ice cream, so screw that.

    Equipment: -Her rollerskates, which make her quicker than most on foot. She's as agile as a dancer in them, probably more than her own two feet.
    -A duck call whistle she uses to signal her friends. All members of The Guild have one.
    -A paint gun which can change colors mid spray.

    Backstory: She was raised by a single mother with her two elder brothers. That's all I have for now.

    BONUS CONTENT: The Guild

    The Guild is an underground club of graffiti artists, originally focused on covering up gang symbols in the city of Inside. Eventually the club became rather famous among the local club and music community and were sought out for concert advertisements and events. It almost became a sort of weird prestige to have them do a piece for you. In addition to supporting local bands, younger members constantly asked for extra tags to get better at art. With the weekly painting jobs, the Guild became an art club all it's own. They often work at night and masked, spending a night on a piece and dispersing just before dawn. They have a series of safe houses magically hidden all over inside and are very organized, having several get away plans. It's members include:

    General Surgeon: Sometimes called "The Doc." He's a professor of engineering by day and the eldest member of the Guild by night. He built everyone's paint guns, which can change the color of the paint, even mid-spray.

    Freakin A!: The group's foul mouthed member, who doesn't really understand that they try to do things stealthily. In the club almost more for the stickin' it to the man than the art. He loves loud music and "Fightin' the powers that be."

    Shady Springs: The huge yet silent guy. He built like a tank, and how his skates support his weight is astounding. Only Doc knows anything about him. He's a good artist and a loyal guild member, so no one complains.

    Speakeasy: Second oldest but second newest. He's new at graffiti art but he's actually in the advertising industry and an expert calligrapher.

    All-Hallows Eve: Obsessed with anime and manga, the distinct, blue haired, and excessively bubbly otaku has every frame of manga she's ever read memorized. As the only member who knows magic, she casts the enchantments that hide the safe houses and spells that keep the paintings from fading or being painted over for weeks. Ships A!xSprings.

    Impractical Joker: The youngest member, fourteen year old Joker is the resident "little perv." The other members are hoping he'll grow out of it.

    Beautiful M.E.: Emmi. Her profile is up at the top. What more do you want?

    Gaalys Merrin

    Aliases: A man has many names.

    Race: Human

    Age: 32

    Alignment: Neutral

    Profession: Assassin

    Description: Gaalys is a man of short and slender build, and is very agile. Currently, he has a narrow face with long white-yellow hair tied back with a leather band. His eyes are green, and his nose is prominent and hooked. Half of his left ear has been cut off.

    Personality: Gaalys is a very friendly man, quick to smile and forgive. He enjoys buying drinks for anyone he deems fit, which helps win him over to his targets. He rarely drinks, though, to keep his head clear. While he doesn't know many jokes, he laughs easily and always will take up a song.

    Equipment: Gaalys' best weapons are his wits and special abilities. However, he carries a long slender saber and a simple, easily concealed dagger.

    Abilities: Face Changing- As one of the Faceless Men of Braavos, Gaalys can change his face with just the pass of his hand. This is very useful when he is avoiding detection while on a job. Any face and name he has is temporary.

    Agility- Growing up in the narrow canals and alleys of Braavos, Gaalys has developed impeccable footing in the most unsure situations.

    Huevo Portero

    Race: Created being. maker was lazy when it came to names

    Age:?

    Description: Long white hair, blank dull red eyes, red jacket with white tie and white pants and two gold bracelets to round it out the sort of odd colors. A little bit short.

    Personality: Huevo seems to be dispassionate about things in general. Seems to be fairly formal in interactions to others.

    Power Rating: C-

    Huevo isn't focused on conflict and is more likely then to teleport out than fight anything.
    However Huevo can make deals and bargains that have far greater affect then any power that he can use himself.

    Name: Vesa Landers (formerly known as "Black Irukandji")
    Age: 25
    Race: Human Revenant
    Appearance: Vesa is a fairly attractive girl, slender and rather pale, with silvery hair reaching to her shoulderblades. Her eyes are the dull greenish-grey of a stormy sea, and her frame is somewhat lanky. She has a small cableport at the back of her neck, which is usually covered by a plug (and her hair).
    She almost always is wearing her armorsuit, as described below, but on occasion can be found out of it---in this case, she can be found in average clothing like dull jeans and long-sleeved tops, generally in shades of grey.

    Enhancements/Armorsuit: Vesa wears a dark grey bodysuit with boots and gloves. Over that, she wears a kama (halfskirt/buttcape/etc) that reaches below the knee. This hides a small hover unit that allows her to glide a meter or two off the ground (actual flight is not supported by it). On her head is a sort of inverted bowl-like structure referred to as a "bell" (i.e. part of cnidarian anatomy) around 2 feet in diameter and 6 inches at its deepest, such that much of her head is hidden within it; on the front, back, and each side is a camera eye. In each section between the eyes, there are 3 Sensacles (explained below) making a total of 12.
    Spoiler: Sensacles
    Show
    Sensacles are tentacle-like projections somewhat thinner than a skinny person's forearm. Their standard length is about 10 feet, and their max is around 20. Each ends in a video/audio sensor and a three-fingered claw; these can be used for direct attack, recon, or manipulating objects.
    Since video-audio input from a total of 16 eyes and ears is generally too much for one brain at one time, the system contains brain-linked processors that monitor the excess input and regulate which ones are being actively viewed by Vesa herself. This changes when C-Protocol is activated.

    Spoiler: C-Protocol
    Show
    C-Protocol: During this function, Vesa's suit's subprocessors connect directly to her brain, effectively allowing her to actively focus on all 16 total sets of video-audio input from her sensors, thus making her temporarily able to deal with issues literally on all sides.
    The drawback to this is that after C-Protocol deactivates, Vesa undergoes psychological and emotional disturbances.


    Equipment: One normal pistol with magazines and a suppressor. One dart pistol with tranquilizer ammo. Her bodily enhancements give her very good aim.
    She also carries a combat knife, and can be outfitted with small explosive charges to be set by her Sensacles---that was, after all, part of her role as a member of Tempest as Black Irukandji.

    Personality: Vesa retains some parts of her living personality; she is rather cold and withdrawn, quiet and occasionally allowing herself brief moments of wryness. She is disturbed by being in a large crowd, and prefers when her duties keep her away from lots of people.
    Vesa has very little in the way of "mercy"; if her orders are to go deal with that guy over there, she really isn't interested in how he's got 4 kids and he's working 3 jobs. She's interested in whether she's supposed to kill him or not.
    She has some warmth left in her, but the only ones able to drag it out are people from her past as a member of Tempest, namely Red Wolf/Alia and Green Chameleon/Chloe, though the latter has not been seen for a very long time.

    Backstory: Most of Vesa's backstory is unknown, but it is clear that she signed on to be a Revenant at some point, died, and was converted into the cybernetically-enhanced postmortem being she currently is. She was transferred to the Clinic to help with security and observation there.

    Nalhriir Zaer'adinzyr Ate'torund Seneschal of Horror, Keeper of the Savage Orb

    Alias: He tends to go by Nal, or more formally as Nalhriir. In his personal writings, he refers to himself by titles that either no longer have any meaning, or else cannot be traced to any reliable source.

    Gender: Male (presumably, see description)

    Race/Species: He most resembles a Fey'ri, though what his right race is none know the dark of it.

    Age: 300 by his counting but it varies (see description/elementary backstory)

    Alignment: True Neutral, though in an apathetic way, not a balancey-druidy way.

    Class/Profession: Planewalker and spellslinger-for-hire

    Power Rating: 5/C(B??)

    Description: A tall figure, hooded and cloaked with large, bat-like wings that appear slightly translucent, as if they were composed of matter that is not quite solid. A long, sinewy, prehensile tail, which also appears slightly "out", snakes out from underneath his cloak and coils behind it. The features one can make out underneath the cowl appear elven, although the fierce red eyes that shine back out would make one re-consider that evaluation. If one ever sees him with his hood down, the elven-seeming appearance is re-affirmed, although now one can see that the shadowy translucence of the wings and tail extend to the rest of his body, and sometimes it looks as if one could put one's hand right through him. The most solid-seeming part of his face are his eyes, which burn fire-red. One of the more telling aspects of his appearance is that there is no discernible indication of gender. It is only his use of masculine pronouns that makes cutters assume he is a male.

    Personality: Despite a somewhat foreboding appearance and pessimistically cynical exterior, Nalhriir is actually relatively pleasant. He thrives on information and loves to talk, especially when it concerns philosophy. Where he comes from, belief (or lack thereof) shapes whole worlds, and he encourages thought, particularly when it agrees with his own. He does seem to possess two separately voiced minds, though; one of which speaks lightly and pleasantly, and one which is darker and more formal. The first seems and sounds perfectly normal. The second, however, sounds distant and echoed, as if what one hears coming from his mouth is actually originally coming

    Equipment: If one were to strip-search Nalhriir, one would find no possessions on him save the clothes he was wearing and a flask of some obscure liquor. He patently does have equipment and objects, as he has been seen with spellbooks, wands, staves, armour, and other such objects, though no trace has ever been found of them when he is not directly using them.

    Backstory: [transcribed from a stolen page from the journal of the Planewalker known as Nalhriir.] I am called the Seneschal of Horror, the Sage of the Savage Orb. It has been several centuries since I was reborn into this world. I can no longer remember my true name, only the names that were given me upon awakening. I remember...nothing of the time before my rebirth. At times I can see the edges of a vision swirl around the pools in my home. In them, a mortal, whose shape I seem to see resemble my own, stands in an infinite plane of Nothingness. He looks out and his mind cannot bear the weight. Then something comes, something dark and powerful, that seems to fill the empty expanse with something that is still Nothing. The mortal seems to talk to the thing, but then the pools eddy and the vision slips away.

    It seems to me that I was reborn for a purpose, but that purpose evades my sight. The thirty decades that I have seen pass in this life have revealed naught but still I wander far from my home, because that was one of the names given to me upon my awakening. That which guides me is Nothing and I begin to suspect...
    [transcription breaks off as the page dissolved into wisps of insubstantial matter before the scriber could finish.]

    Miscellaneous: The two voice colours are for indicating which side of Nalhriir is consciously active at the time. For those rare times when both sides are active, the darker voice will be spoilered, as it is generally more internal and introspective, and really only there if the people around him happen to be telepathic.
