    Name: Ensara
    Race: Orc
    Sex: Female
    Profession: Warrior
    Power Rank: 5/C

    Powers:
    None Yet/Not defined.

    Equipment:
    Hide Armor
    Battle Ax

    Backstory:
    Orcs have always been cut down by others. The gods abandon them, adventurers slay them by the dozen, and their warlords hearing the rage of their people, thinking only of revenge. Their prayers are not answered, what homes they can find among ruins, abandoned buildings and caves are attacked and ransacked. Despite their seeming ferocity to humanity they are a dying race, slowly losing numbers as time goes on with no chance given to rebuild or to cooperate with others without violence. Yet they still continue the fight, their pride as warriors unable to allow them to give up.

    Is it any wonder why they beseech the lower planes for help? No one else will give them any. This is the world in which Ensara the orc is born into. At age eighteen she is a young, up and coming warrior who is getting to the point where she can challenge her tribe's chief in combat for leadership. Ensara has seen how horrible this way of life is going and is determined to make sure that is changed.

    She has however recently found out that her current chief is trying to enter into a pact with a demon to try and secure her tribes safety....

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.

    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.

    Honeysuckle

    Speaks in Coral


    Gender: Feminine
    Race/Species: Nogitsune
    Age: Honeysuckle is an adult.
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral. Black Mana.
    Class/Profession: Honeysuckle has moved on from Assistant Baker and Fuel to become a Power Engineer.
    Power Rating: You wouldn't pick a fight with a poor blind girl, would you? B-, or 3, with a wild destructive power beyond her control.
    Description: Long fox ears (though not competing with those fennec folks) and short-cropped hair of a matching black shade. A particularly pointed nose. A fairly average figure. Two black-furred tails with a bit of white fur at the tip.
    An opaque metal visor of sliding panels and shutters that completely covers her eyes.
    Baggy, shapeless clothes in cooler colors.
    Personality: Honeysuckle is, first of all, a coward. But after that, she's playful, with a full sense of humor. She speaks boldly and isn't afraid to make demands.
    Equipment:
    The good blindfold, made of green and secrets.
    A little darkly shining orb.
    Abilities:
    Honeysuckle has a very clear sense of the density and molecular makeup of things around her.
    Almost anything she looks at is going to fare very poorly, not to mention what happens to things she actually focuses both eyes on.
    Backstory: Oh, let's not get into anything so disagreeable right now. Let's just say she came from the worse parts of Skyside.

    Honeysuckle's father was, most probably, a sort of fox-spirit. Honeysuckle's mother was, well, her race is not quite clear, but she was married to someone else entirely. When Honeysuckle was born, both relationships fell apart. Years later, her weary mother tricked her devil-fox-child, chained her up, and sold her to a slaver.
    For a while, she was used in an innovative electrical reactor. That, she'll tell you, wasn't so bad. But eventually the place was shut down in a mad science conflict.
    Thereafter she was owned by a collector (fox-things were a dime a dozen, but this one...) and rarely given the opportunity to see anything. Exhibits were treated poorly. In time his fortunes changed and the collection was sold off.
    The next buyer was insufficiently wary and was burned away, allowing Honeysuckle to escape to freedom.
    Eventually, she ended up at the Skullfort with other refugees.
    She went to see Mist alongside Todd and Riades. Was changed to help avoid unwanted attention. At the time, she couldn't imagine there being another kind. Then Todd broke free, and she ended up with the messenger-orb. It tried to do the same thing - take her over - but she put it in its place and did something to it.
    Night at La Fontaine
    Rented a room from Felandria.
    During the blood moon, she felt her orb calling her to open her eyes and look at the sky. She demolished a whole city block and feasted. In the morning, she had a second tail.

    UNKOWN NAME
    Alias: Tier
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: Unknown
    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    Class/Profession: Former Spec Ops soldier, now mercenary.
    Power Rating: 5
    Description: Always clad in green, battle scarred armor (that looks something like this). Is an angry, hate and anger filled man. Is known to be arrogant.
    Equipment: Many, many firearms and grenades. M4 Bayonet Knife with plasma edge, Heavy armor that can resist bullets up to .50 BMG rounds and can absorb up to 98% of a plasma bolt. A one man fighter spaceship. A small cruiser ship with cloaking.
    Abilities: Military training, augmented physical abilities, adept pilot.
    Weaknesses: No protection from magic. Known to be arrogant and inefficient.
    Backstory: No one knows exactly where Tier comes from, or where he even chose his name from. Although it is known that he comes from a future of our Earth. While no records of him are around, he will tell you that he has always been evil, despite how much philosophers and religious authorities may say that all begin good or something like that. He will also tell you that he started as a member of the 1st Response Squadron, a newly developed squad in the US Marine Corps that was made to be deployed anywhere, including space colonies. He eventually found his way into the Green Berets, where he claims that he betrayed his squad for a very large amount of money, although he will never specify how much. He will then tell you that he fled and joined the French Foreigner's Legion, as they promised to clear his name. After several missions, he deserted. An organization named Mirage, a military group recently formed by a group of Eastern European and Middle Eastern countries, who eventually ran the experiments on him that gave him his superhuman physical capabilities, hired him on for a very high price. He stole his armor from a German military research facility on their Mars colony, which he said there were no survivors. He then worked for several clients as a mercenary and assassin, completing over 500 operations from when he left the FFL. In East Asia, he became known as the "One Man Army" while in Africa, he became known as the "Green Demon." He found his way into the nexus due to a black hole and some other not so scientific complications.

    Red Lion


    Alias: Lion
    Gender: Male
    Species: Orc...?
    Age: 47
    Occupation: Hunter, ex-Gladiator

    Description:

    Red Lion is a fearsome giant of an individual, standing at 7'8" thanks to the demonic blood magic experimentation conducted on him by unscrupulous and powerful wizards intent on creating a perfect individual. The origin of his gladiator name is the long mane of thick black dreadlocks that hangs nearly to his waist, covered in red ocher mud to match the red tattoos that mark his face and up his arms. The survivor of hundreds of pit fights, his dark skin is covered in countless scars across his entire body, showcasing decades of experience killing both man and beast. His harsh lifestyle has made its mark in other ways, aging him before his time - slight streaks of grey shoot through the black of his dreadlocks and short beard, and his face is prematurely lined and weathered. Despite such hard circumstances, Red Lion could still definitely be considered to be incredibly handsome, and his well-muscled body the envy of any man even half his age.

    Personality:

    Focused. Meditative. Philosophical. Red Lion has lived a lifetime of slaughter - though not the brightest man around, and certainly not at all educated (he can't read, for instance), he's come to appreciate thinking on the higher philosophies and mysteries of life. In any case, the demonic corruption running through his blood has provided him with an overabundance of patience and caution - to be immoderate in his passions would risk reawakening the rage that lurks darkly beneath his still demeanor.

    Equipment:

    Red Lion has little in the way of magical gear, preferring to wear plain furs and leathers and arming himself with weapons scavenged and crafted from the materials of the hunt. Most notably, his weapons include a horn bow, a spear and hatchet, several javelins, and some long knives, including a favored curved dagger with a lion's tooth in the hilt.

    Abilities:

    Red Lion's demonic blood gives him incredible strength and resilience, that is only enhanced when his blood begins to boil, his anger bubbling over into a hellish, supernatural rage. Red Lion is a gladiator of more than 20 years experience - a practical eternity in the deadly environment of the pits, and is accordingly a melee combatant of nigh unparalleled skill and ferocity. In addition to his prowess in combat, Red Lion has become a skilled archer and accomplished tracker, finding the focus of archery to be an effective meditation against the rage that bubbles in his blood.

    Backstory:

    Once a gladiator and a slave, the fighter known as Red Lion was experimented on by mages using blood magic and other demonic arts, infecting his blood with rage and fury, turning him into a deadly fighter. It wasn't for years, fighting and slaughtering in the pits, that the rage finally faded long enough for the fighter known as Red Lion to consider his situation, and make his escape. Now, confronted with his past deeds and the inhuman rage that still dwells in his blood, Red Lion hopes the glory of the hunt will be enough to make whatever gods exist consider his place in the heavens.

    Vax Teplos

    Gender: Female

    Species: Dim

    Age: 47

    Profession: Fourth Tower Warlock

    Appearance:
    Vax is a mature dim woman with african features. She's very tall and has a curvy figure. Her hair is a number of flat, green leaves that she occasionally tied back. Her skin is green, leaf textured plant matter and her eyes are pure black orbs. Her teeth are like pointed thorns. She wears minimal clothing, often just enough to get by.



    Personality:
    Vax often comes across as unfeeling, and even cruel. She cares little for anyone but those absolutely closest to her. She's fiercely ambitious and has very few morals. She has a great deal of pride and high expectations for herself, and she extends this to those who are associated with her.

    Abilities:
    Dreamer - Vax primarily has made pacts that allow her to manipulate dreams and bring dreams into reality. She conjures the impossible and twists perceptions with frightening ease. She'd just as soon as leaving you in pleasing bliss as she would sic your worst nightmares on you.

    Predatory - Dim are predators by nature. Though not effective over long distances, Vax is extremely quick in short bursts. All the better to get the drop on her prey and put her strength to use. Over time she's made a few pacts that only enhance these attributes.

    History:
    From the land of Elshar, Vax was like many dim. A lone hunter concerned with little but day to day survival. This often put her at odds with a few nearby villages, and one day she was actually captured by them, and was at risk of being killed. At least until a young woman, visiting the village Vax was captured outside of, took pity on her. Vax was freed and fled with this woman.

    The woman was named Zhareen. She was a young merfolk from a nearby community. Vax stayed with her for a time, largely because the girl was so easy to manipulate into bringing her food. However, and actual affection grew over time for this kinda, sweet woman. Vax convinced Zhareen to run away with her, and their life together began. Eventually they would join a sect of the Fourth Tower and rise through the ranks to both be respected warlocks.

    "Vesper" Saranthael Ololo


    ALIAS: Vesper

    RACE/SPECIES: High Elf Vampire

    AGE: 203 [30s]

    ALIGNMENT: CE

    CLASS/PROFESSION: Bladesinger Wizard

    DESCRIPTION: Tall and willowy, it has been a long time since anyone has regarded Vesper Ololo as a “Lady.” The disfigured High Elf is covered in thick, velvety strips of cloth that cover every vestige of flesh and thus ultimately rendering the vampire genderless. She is tall, like most elves, sometimes donning Mage Armor or the occasional light armor from her latest conquests. Her eyes are the only part of her that show in their nakedness, the window within the head cloth revealing fiery brown eyes and a thirst for.. something unplaced. Making a point to hide her Nosferatu nature, she doesn’t reveal herself when she feeds, for she would need to take off her facial cloth. Beneath it lies a horrendous mouth without a cheek, showing a set of white tangs and even a pink tongue to the open air. She is unable to speak without causing an airy whistle about her syllables, and prefers telepathic magics instead. Beneath her many layers is a body of scorched flesh. A victim of a seeming pointless crime, she has taken her identity to the Bladesingers and has etched upon her marred skin the tattoos of the Red Tiger, her fighting style. All of this full of mystery, or lack there of, for the average Vesper Ololo appears to be the typical loner type, with a stereotypical hood and masked bottom half of her face. [Feel inspired in her looks by Scorpion from the academic game of Mortal Combat or Sheik from LoZ.]

    Spoiler: Appearance
    Show

    Pre Searing:


    Current Mouth Disfigurement:


    PERSONALITY: Sardonic and quick witted, the monster of a High Elf has long lost her taste for such things as the glitter of the adventurer’s life. She does not seek jewels or weapons, but rather power and knowledge. This has seeped into every aspect of her character, and while being a character once of high standing in Elfish nobility, she has long forgotten her place as a morally upright creature. She tends to look past the ugly and seek to find the true of creatures, much like dissecting a living thing. Her amusement are flippant but intense, sometimes leaving the High Elf years behind the rest of her company upon being absorbed in extensive projects or ventures.

    EQUIPMENT:
    Two silver lined scimitars, and a worn spell book at her hip— much older than the vampire herself.

    ABILITIES: A skilled swordswoman, she uses two scimitars to ‘blade sing’ in battle. The power makes her extremely fast and agile, able to strike fluidly and fatally to an enemy at close range. This blade song only lasts for a few minutes per rest, and all other times she must assume the role of an average glass wizard. As a vampire, she is able to turn to mist, and drink from her enemy to regain health.

    BACKSTORY: TLDR: A beautiful High Elf noble, destined to marry a handsome prince™, she was a victim of an evil sorcerer’s wrath. Being shunned by her family and fiance due to her newly scorched monstrous form, she sought the aid of a vampire to restore her disfigured body. Upon being sired, and realizing she had just made her defacement permanent, she traveled the world for a purpose, only to find it at home. The Bladesingers, a secret sect of golden elves that use the blade and magic as one, gave her training as one of their own, despite her scars and teeth. She is now a wanderer, and a student of the weave, looking for the next big thing to fixate upon.

    Simone Isandwani

    Appearance

    Simone is a human woman, with brown skin and straight black hair which is usually braided. She is thin and small, with bright attentive eyes, and an impish smile. Simone doesn't know her exact age, but she is probably around 19-23.

    Abilities
    • Skilled linguist: Growing up in a trade town, Simone learned many languages, and learns new ones easily
    • Urban stealth
    • Pickpocket
    • Lockpick
    • Streetwise
    • Haggle / Bluff / Read people
    • High dexterity and speed
    • Fortune telling (Cold reading)
    • Shade casting
    • Shadow-walking


    History

    Simone's mother Evaya worked on the streets, telling fortunes and stealing when she could, but selling her body when she had no other options. She didn't know which of the men fathered Simone, but she did her best to take care of her child. But with another mouth to feed, she had to resort to prostitution more and more. She did her best to protect her daughter from such a life. When Simone was about 10, Evaya died after being beaten by one of the men who'd used her.

    After this, Simone lived on her wits, stealing, begging, running cons, and offering her services as a guide and translator to tourists. She relied on her speed and stealth to escape human predators, but was one time forced to stab a man who tried to molest her. She found out later that he died.

    Eventually, she became an agent for a God of Information named Helios, and along the way, she made her way to the Nexus. She considers Helios family, of a sort, though not a father figure of any sort. Helios's daughter Ambrosia, she thinks of as her foster sister.

    Lifestyle

    Though she has the money now to live more comfortably, Simone lives in the slums of Inside. She is a docent for the Bookbinder's Library of Inside, and has financed an expansion project for teaching literacy.

    Personality

    Simone's most prominent characteristics are her inquisitiveness, her cheerful extroversion, and her pride. Usually, if she shows any vulnerability, it is a calculated to manipulate the sympathy of others to her advantage. She believes that she's the only person she can rely on, and refuses to make herself dependent on others. However, she is friendly to everyone, and despite the hardship of her life, seems to have very little bitterness.

    Equipment
    • Knife
    • Lockpick tools
    • Juggling balls
    • Various other rogue implements that I don't feel like researching
    • A lock of her mother's hair, and of Aegnor's hair, braided together, that she keeps always in a pocket over her heart
    • A silver necklace and two silver bracelets, for protection against Cuthunian demons
    • A pair of brass hoop earrings that increase her ability to hear

    Jonas

    Alias: none

    Gender: Male

    Age: 84

    Alignment: Lawful Evil

    Class: Biologist 5, Gunslinger 5, Fighter 5

    Description: A loud clanking noise permeates the doorway towards the hustle and bustle of Skyside. A figure almost entirely encased in what appears to be a purple metal suit walks into view. He's almost seven feet tall, dwarfing most people who walk by him. His head is covered in a half yellow half gray helmet with no features except two eye holes and three lines that gave hint of a scorched mouth. His metal suit's torso is purple, with pink wires running all throughout it. His arms are black with three spindly, robotic fingers poking out at the end of the arm. His legs white, and entirely mechanical. The knees bend in the opposite way a normal man's do, and instead of feet are four spindly, robotic tendrils much like the one's that compose his fingers.

    A voice that seems to be a cross from John Cramer and Ultron speaks four short words: Looks like I'm home..

    Personality: Loves seventies music, loves genetic manipulation to accomplish his goals, and doesn't really refrain from killing if necessary. Is always on the job.

    Equipment: Hand Gun (literally), arm stored energy sword, numerous bacterial viruses, a radio with the greatest hits of Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, and Steelers Wheels.

    Abilities: Aim: Okay, but not that great; Swordplay: Nearly perfect; has a serious OCD problem in specific fields and has a real fear of magic (It is what put him in the robotic suit)

    Backstory: Jonas was a biologist of the highest caliber. He could cure a flu patient in days, he could genetically alter the composition of a blind man's eyes so he could see again, but he could not cure the one disease that had stumped man for centuries: cancer. During Jonas's late seventies, he caught a bad case of lung cancer. He started to research it in full in a space facility in the nexus. He came close to a cure at one point, but someone had interrupted his studies. An elven man had come to the station requesting asylum from an alien force. Jonas granted the man's request, but he paid the price. The alien creatures burned the flesh from Jonas's bones, nearly killing him. Both the aliens and the elf fled, leaving Jonas to rot. The automatic staff (robots) gathered the steaming carcass up, and locked his brain into a suit of mechanical armor. This drove Jonas near insane, and gave him the desire to annihilate the ones who did this to him. Instead of helping people with his genius, he found ways to wage genetic warfare never before seen. He found the alien species that ruined his life as a human being, and caused an extinction event of the aliens, and any species that were even remotely linked to them. Jonas expanded his range, and made a brutal mercenary corporation called the Alien Defense Unit (Though this was only a lie, the ADU was just a place Jonas could do his genetics work).

    Xavouir Markard



    Alias: The Left Hand of Death
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Daemon
    Age: 32
    Alignment: Chaotic Good
    Class/Profession: Wizard 3, Commoner 4, Fighter 6
    Power Rating: With Kitty: B, Without Kitty: C
    Personality: Eccentric at best, slightly deranged at worst
    Equipment: Green Robes of Power (They don't really do anything except look cool), a couple of Cure Moderate Wounds potions, and the intelligent magic sword named Kitty (The sword is actually a power level akin to a demi-god)
    Abilities: Xavouir has basic magic, with Kitty he has perfect swordplay, without Kitty he has basic swordplay, he is really easy to hit (but has a healing factor)
    Backstory: Really simple one. Xavouir was born into a human world, yet he was a Daemon. He was ridiculed by almost everyone, and dabbled in dark magic at one point. After a revelation that if he continued down this path he would be eternally damned, he turned to the path of "sort of good". He took on the mantle of Priest of Pharasma, the god of birth and death, and eventually was gifted with her greatest weapon: The Black Sword of Profane Power. Xavouir shortened this name to "Kitty", and has been wandering aimlessly killing evil wherever he finds it.
    Miscellaneous: On the chances that people steal Kitty, the sword has a chance to expel their spirit from their body. It doesn't kill them, their soul returns eventually, but if they're evil they get to see the true meaning of hell if only for a little while.

    Kurrack Lai

    Alias: The Dread Druid
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Kroot
    Age: 37
    Alignment: Chaotic Nuetral
    Class/Profession: Druid (Shannara Chronicles) 5, Fighter 10
    Power Rating: Hero of Legend
    Description: This avian man might once have inspired terror into his foes, but not any longer. He wears a wide assortment of leathers, from boiled to clean, and his bloodied beak hints at the fact that like all Kroot, he eats his prey. His quills instead of going strait back like a normal Kroot are wildly disarranged. He wears little on his legs, save a leather kilt.
    Equipment: Kroot Leathers, Chainsword, Fetish Pouch (for casting prayers to the ancestors)
    Abilities: Near perfect at defensive melee, incredible jumping ability, druidic power, prophetic visions, and witty charm... for a filthy xeno
    Backstory: Kurrack Lai once led a wide battalion of Kroot into battle, and successfully. He crushed all of his enemies, be they human, Ork, or any other adversary to the Tao. His feral nature and kinship to the ancestors eventually gave him the Nickname "The Dread Druid", yet this all changed one faithful day. During one of his prophetic visions, he saw himself fall in battle. It was a glorious battle, and a glorious death, but Kurrack became frightened. He deserted his army, leaving them to be mercilessly slaughtered without any honor. Horrified with his actions, Kurrack fled all the way to the Nexus, hoping he could prove himself to the ancestors again.

    The Riverman


    Alias: The Rower, Fiend that Walks, The Celtic-Bear, He Who Wades

    Gender: Beyond such trivialities, though he is fairly masculine.

    Race/Species: Demonic Water Spirit

    Age: Been too long to count

    Alignment: Lawful Evil

    Class/Profession: Demon 25, Boatman 5?

    Power Rating: Out of water, "he's" an A. If you fight him in water, S-

    Personality: Pretty laid back. Occasionally he'll make deals with mortals, and occasionally he'll kill mortals, but mostly he'll just offer his services to get from one point of the stream to the other. Be that stream literal or figurative is up to "him"

    Equipment: Cosmic Canoe (Can row just about anywhere), cowled blue robes, Magical Paddle (acts as a "wizard's staff" if a focus of power is needed).

    Abilities:(In water):
    1) Complete mastery of water
    2) Epic Level magic
    3) Immunity to damage
    4) Immense Strength

    (Out of Water)
    1) Complete mastery over water
    2) Major Magical talent
    3) Resistance to damage
    4) Pretty strong

    (Regardless of water)
    1) Immensely wise
    2) Aura of fear (can turn it off if "he" wants)
    3) Immortality (As long as there is water in the Nexus, he cannot die. He can be destroyed, but he will reform)

    Backstory: The Nexus has been developing for quite some time now. The etheric energies keeping such an anomaly of space intact are bound to split into personalities at some point. Technically The Riverman (the Rower, the Fiend That Walks, The Celtic-Bear, or He Who Wades doesn't really care what you call him) has been in the Nexus all along, but he has chosen this moment to show "himself" to the world. His goals aren't that clear, though one thing is for certain: this creature is dangerous. Who knows what it can do if left unchecked...

    What he looks like: An eight foot tall man in cowled blue robes standing on a white canoe. In his left hand is a paddle, and he beckons to you with his right. His hands are gloved with gray silk, and the closer you get you start to notice his eyes glow red.

    ZONK


    Alias: None

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Goblin

    Age: 27

    Alignment: Neutral Evil

    Class/Profession: Gunslinger (Steven King's Dark Tower Gunslinger)

    Power Rating: B

    Personality: Laid back, but in a fight he's as quick as they come

    Equipment: Endless Bandoleer, 2 pistols, Endless regular bullets, 1 God-Bane bullet (Yes it does what you think it does, that's why he only has one for defense)

    Abilities: Incredibly fast reloading, Expert Marksman

    Backstory: All for chicken. that is what Zonk had always told himself. All of this was for some god**** chicken. He had slain Tyrants, he had slain saints, he had slain weird neutral people who weren't really good or evil all for some stupid chicken. Just to note, Zonk wasn't a travelling mercenary who had killed the best of the best and the worst of the worst under some sort of chicken god, he was just hungry. Chicken was his favorite food, no one in town would ever serve him, crying for the guard because some "monster had broken through the town walls", and Zonk was too lazy to hunt his own chicken. So, he decided to hop by the Nexus a few times, and what do you know? Everyone's a freak or monster here! Chicken for all!

    Miscellaneous: His favorite food is, you guessed it, chicken.

    Ne-Gok-Sa

    Alias: Warmonger, Villain, Sick Freak, Disgusting Abomination, Master (In that order)

    Gender: Male

    Species: Marro

    Age: Unknown

    Alignment: Chaotic Evil

    Class: Barbarian, Psychic

    Power Rating: B

    Description: I got me a picture! He's the dude on the rock
    Spoiler: What he looks like (Warning BIG
    Show


    Personality: He is a talker. Loves to boast upon his past battles. He is also a good therapist (what with his telepathy and all), and if you prove yourself to him, he would be willing to help with psychological problems. No, I'm just kidding, he is a savage bloody conqueror.

    Equipment: Built in armor plating, his right arm is an obsidian sword, and that's pretty much it.

    Abilities: Has the ability to project his thoughts in a way the projectee understands, Has perfect (and I mean beating Ares in a fair fight perfect) offensive swordplay. Sucks at defending himself though (that's what the sub-dermal armor plating is for)

    Backstory: Ne-Gok-Sa was the scourge of the Marro, being one of the only of his species to control the minds of weak willed humanoids. He vanquished many while he was alive, but this all ended one day when an orbital strike annihilated him whilst he single handily held off a large force of soldiers. Death did not stop his rampage however, and he (with two trusty Marrden Nagrubs, see misc.) fought his way out of Valhalla and into the Nexus.

    Miscellaneous: Two things:
    1) Ne-Gok-Sa cannot actually speak, but psychically projects his words directly to the person whom he's having a conversation with's brain.

    2) He is constantly followed by two Marrden Nagrubs

    Harold Philips


    Alias: None that he's proud of

    Gender: Male

    Race/Species: Technically Human

    Age: Around 10000 years old, a little bit less

    Alignment: Chaotic Nuetral, looking to reform

    Class/Profession: Warlock

    Power Rating: C+

    Description:
    Spoiler: He's aged well (warning big)
    Show


    Personality: Charming

    Equipment: Nothing but the clothes on his back

    Abilities: Semi-Immortality: As long as Harold holds his bargain to the soon to be dead demonic lich Nimnarath, he can't die. Even if he breaks his oath of servitude, Nimnarath will be the only person who'll be able to kill him. Also has minor spellcasting abilities. Also also being around ten thousand years old Harold is crazy smart.

    Backstory: Harold was just a normal human beggar in a world far from the nexus. That is until he stumbled upon a demonic entity known as Nimnarath, whom he made a pact with. The details of this pact have been lost for millennia, even Harold forgot what it was, but Nimnarath broke this oath by killing Harold. Nimnarath was bound by the promises that he makes, and the powers that be punished Nimnarath for the broken oath by cursing Harold with immortality. Nimnarath, enraged that Harold came out on top of this deal, forced Harold to swear a new oath to him detailing that if Harold ever told another being on how to kill him, Nimnarath would be able to slay Harold again. For countless years Harold served the dark lich, and he ruined the lives of countless men and women. Harold recently started to feel horribly about his actions, and regardless of whether Nimnarath would kill him or not he revealed where the Lich's phylactery was and ran from the lich.

    Miscellaneous: This guy was originally meant as a sub-boss on a plot that i ran from the forums, but I fell in love with the character concept so now I want to play him more full time than originally thought.

    "J"
    (speaks in teal)

    Gender: Female (but not in a biological sense)
    Race: Earth Elemental (see backstory)
    Age: 8 (looks like ~19 for a human age, as she does not exactly age)
    Alignment: Theoretically Lawful Good, but acts in a chaotic way sometimes.
    Profession: Alchemist/warrior (depending on what exactly is going on at the time)
    Power Rating: B-
    Description: J normally appears as a slim human of around 19 years of age. Being an earth elemental, she is made entirely of stone and dirt. As such, she does not have hair, so she grows grass (and alchemical herbs) on her head to give the appearance of hair. She generally wears shorts, a shirt, and a backpack, all dark green because they are made of woven plants (she could not find anything else to make them out of.). All of this could change, though (see the Abilities section).
    Backstory: J was created by a wizard on an unknown world through a complicated process that was intended to bind an earth elemental into a human form and to make the elemental his servant. The ritual failed horribly several times. The first time he tried it, the elemental destroyed his house. The second time, it simply returned to the Elemental Plane of Earth. It took ten tries for the ritual to work. J was produced by that tenth attempt (this is why she calls herself J) and she served him for eight years and nine months. At that time, she wandered through a portal that her master had produced accidentally during a new ritual and found herself in the Nexus.
    Personality: Having been created to be a servant, J simply obeys orders most of the time - this is why being a shopkeeper or a soldier work well for her. However, she also likes to have fun with the directions and figure out the most roundabout and impractical ways to finish her task. This has gotten her a reputation as a prankster, even though it usually does not obstruct anything. Unless, of course, she believes that the order is for a bad purpose. Then you never know what will happen.
    Equipment: J always wears a backpack that contains many bottles of potions. These usually include a strong acid, a bottle of Greek fire, a multitude of healing potions, a potion to make plants grow, and at least one of her experimental potions that even she usually does not know the function of. She also has several bottles of water in case she needs to spontaneously brew a potion for the situation, as well as the usual ingredients. Her backpack and clothes are made of woven plant stems.
    Abilities: As J is an earth elemental, she is made mostly of stone and thus is extremely durable, but she is also more agile than would be expected from a being made of stone. She can also shapeshift in a limited fashion by absorbing stone and dirt into her body and then shaping it by dissolving it with the acid that she usually carries. This can also be used to regenerate from wounds. Also, her body does not appear to age. She also has some martial arts training.

    Aliases: None

    Gender: Too alien to have one. Does "it" count?

    Race/Species: Mi-Go

    Age: Never ask an alien his age! He'll just say something unpronounceable!

    Alignment: Neutral Evil

    Class/Profession Vivisectionist, Surgeon, and Scientist. That all just means he knows where to stab you

    Power Rating: B-

    Description: I got me a picture, again!

    Personality: Very Direct. Doesn't really understand human conversation that well.
    Example Conversation: How was your day?
    Countless beings all across the multiverse died simultaneously, some crying out in agony whilst others welcomed the sweet release of death. My day's manner is insignificant towards the plight of these life forms.

    Equipment: Always has a few brain cylinders tucked away in his demi-plane (It just uses it as a backpack), Carries on person a Mi-Go Mist Projector at all times. Also has alien looking surgery tools.

    Abilities: High resistance to damage, near Brainiac level genius, and minor magic

    Backstory:
    The following is an intercepted psychic conversation translated into english:

    Subject One: The space outside space known as the "Nexus" is a recently discovered location of the Mi-Go empire. Send our local "physician" to collect sufficient data. Have him return to Yuggoth in a period of time subject to change. Mission may become indefinite. End transmission

    THE RED FOX


    The Red Fox is a man of many skills, dangerous skills, and the one of (If not THE) best assassin and master of disguise in the world he originates.


    Aliases: The Red Fox; Karol 'Todd' Devoss; Frank Hunter; Countless other Previous names and Disguises.


    Gender: Born Male and Identifies as such, but has spent month to year long stretches under the guise and identity of various women.

    Race/Species: Homo Sapiens With no disguise, appears quite European and very slight Asian features if you're looking hard.

    Alignment: Difficult, but this incarnation can be argued on the Good/Evil axis, but is most certainly Chaotic, valuing his own morals and instincts above any laws that might seek to oppress his hard fought freedom.

    Class/Profession: Fox has always been a sneaky man, and a killer from early adulthood. First he was a criminal, an enforcer, then a hitman on his own, then the government got to him, and then he got to his government, and now he's a super assassin with no enemies left standing. Truly a rogue agent.

    Abilities: Fox has peak human attributes but lacks the frame to be a powerhouse in the strength department. He is by no means deficient and has compensated for this high strength/weight ratio in his techniques and tactics. He is probably the most deadly man in his world withing a hundred meters. Unrivaled handgun marksmanship and hand to hand combatant, Expert in all firearm types, and proficient with all other weapons, and an avid and trained user of multiple weapons simultaneously.
    Fox's deadliest weapon is in fact his extraordinary keen senses and aptitude for guile. He has accomplished many tasks thought to be impossible for one man and his senses are sharp enough that he's fought via vague intuition while blinded and smells before. Fox is by no means invincible, and is well aware of this fact, preferring to bypass fights when possible.

    Description: Late Thirties,Five Foot Seven, and 170Lb, Fox is a lean beast of wire and beautiful smooth flesh. Although he is of average to small stature, he can often appear much more or much less than a man of his size, and often does. The Red Fox does NOT allow people to see his unaltered and true face, but his disguises are imperfect: His ears always connect smoothly at the bottom, and he always has a red item. Beyond that, his pale complexion is difficult to hide, but he can achieve a reasonable level of tan. Normally he is almost unhealthily pale and clean shaven, with short hair and well kept attire befitting whatever station he holds at the moment. Normally, his eyes are brown.

    Personality: Fox is at his best when he is a free man making his own decisions, and often despises being forced to do anything he opposes. While most certainly not above violence as a solution, In fact it is his fourth and last, he refrains from its use when not essential to accomplish a task. He is friendly when he thinks he can be, and a bit of a flirt. He also enjoys recreational drinking.

    Backstory: Fox is not aware of how he got here or why, but he's caught wind that reality is a much bigger and more flexible thing than he ever imagined, and plans to spend his days and years dispensing justice and enjoying this wonderful free life he's been given. This is a far cry from the merciless government missions and spy games he's used to, and hopefully less heartbreaking.

    Equipment: Fox has many blades of various description, at least two matched handguns (Couple of Browning High Powers, custom fitted and well made, with suppressors. The Left one has a few trigger group components he holds as quite valuable to him, as they originate from a previous BHP of his.) Fox is rarely without some explosive device of some kind, or chord. He also keeps a stylized gas-mask to hide his face when he so desires, as well as a lighter. (He doesn't smoke, but aliases have, and fire is useful.)

    Doctor Jones

    Alias: Doctor Jones, Doctor Smith, Doctor Arnold, Doctor (You get the pattern)

    Gender: Male

    Species: Halfling? Gnome? Something small, certainly

    Age: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Alignment: Sinister

    Class/Profession: Witch Doctor, Con Man, and Machiavellian

    Power Rating: B+

    Description:
    Spoiler: Picture
    Show


    Personality: Sinister. Every deal he makes ends up with the mark he makes them with regretting every decision they made up to that point
    in a fair exchange of goods and or services which ends up beneficial to both parties!

    Equipment: A mismatch of spirit charms of which he can smash in order to summon a powerful entity, a few fertility charms wit which he can sell for a quick buck or two, a few shrunken heads with which he can use to commune with a dead spirit of which "Doctor Jones" knows the name of, and a complete Tarrot deck unlike any seen. Also a really neat sword!

    Abilities: Spirit summoning, some minor magic he can do without his charms, highly resistance to damage. Holds a charm with his soul in it. If he is killed, he reforms with all of his belongings near the phylactery. If someone finds and destroys the phylactery, his soul flies off to the afterlife where he should have gone countless years ago

    Backstory: Doctor Jones, his current alias that he uses, started life as a con man. He was a palm reader, a Tarrot reader, and a witch doctor. The last title was where he came up with the only static parts of his aliases (aliasi?). His habit for trickery often got him banished from many villages, until he made the unlucky mistake of conning the Lantern King, a trickster god. The god was the absolute master of trickery, but he was furious to have been fooled by this little man. The Lantern king cursed Doctor Jones with immortality, though not the good kind. Doctor Jones would age, the flesh would rot off of his corpse, and he would never have the ability to trick anyone again.

    Well, Doctor Jones had to find some way to fend off this doom, and he figured since he was immortal he was invincible as well. He decided to commune with one who was rumored to be immortal and gift immortality as well: the False Dark God of Despair Nimnarath himself. His communion was successful, and Nimnarath would give him immortality without the whole rotting thing for a price. His soul would be locked away in a small charm to be kept by Nimnrarth himself. If the witch doctor ever angered the False God, or did not follow his instruction, Nimnarath would snap the charm in two and send the good doctor's soul into oblivion.

    With the imminent death of Nimnarath, The tricky Doctor is getting ready to loot the false god's tower of both his soul, and the power Nimnarath obtained as well.

    Misc. If ever I wanted to make another Dark Tower plot, or a sequel to it, this guy's going to be the antagonist.

    ((Okay, first of all, I want to warn anyone tuning in for the first time that this is not how to make a character directory post. For references, look up. Or down. But not at me.))

    I've been here for...a while now. The nautilus slowly grows.
    A gateway, a massive arc of featureless white catching the eternal sun. Beyond the arc, scrub forests give way to seaside cliffs and beaches, antarctic waters, beneath it the glass and plastic domes of my house.

    I am Yone, Wonderworker of the Wheel, and I claim this directory post as my own!
    I had more names before, 'Reyezuela Reindhez Gonzales', but this all started because I don't get along with my family.
    Aliases are something I have no need for, not yet.


    The Gender: field here is filled in with 'Woman'. Species: Vasoril
    The body I have now is female, and so was the one I had before.
    No point in getting all bent out of shape about it like some people.
    But 'coeurl' might be more helpful to you. A big cat with tentacled shoulders. Long neck. Horns.
    Or maybe 'fairy' would be more important?
    No elves and goblins here; those are left for the Earth Court. We stick to the same ancestral form we've always had.
    .
    .
    .
    .
    'Alignment' From monogrammed pillows and little signs, one can extract a Lawful Neutral
    philosophy.
    If you were rooting around in journals, letters, and private papers, you would find the writer's outlook to be White (Black secondary)

    Buried in the bottom of a cabinet, medical papers would confirm a B Blood Type (from some time ago when she dwelt in a human body)
    In the study, astrological charts showing false-stars never seen here would show a birth under the Sign of the Lovers
    Age
    Sparrow's Retreat
    The Ark.
    These places had
    different times.
    We're ageless, undying.
    But for the court, I'm very young.
    Something about the Nexus

    Outside the house, glowering on the edge of the property. A workshop.
    Class/Profession: Artificer. Our term for it is 'Wonderworker'. The forging of Charities into artifacts, magical items, that is the innovation of the Outer Court, and I feel sure it holds the secret to the Veldt. It is my calling, and in it I far surpass the one who once taught me.
    Power Rating: In combat? I couldn't beat Places in a fight, so I guess that makes me C- at best. I don't even have a blade yet, so it's probably less. But I can do a lot of useful things that aren't fighting! Purely in terms of power, you'd want to put me at a 6.

    A glimpse among the tall grasses is nevertheless enough for a full Description: Those cerulean eyes, without iris or pupil, pools of blazing color seeing without sight, set into a panther's face. Two tentacles, smooth ropy limbs outstretched from the shoulders, were holding the grass apart. Her tail ends in a big tuft of long fur, with a decorative clip of jade and ormolu. Not entirely unlike something snakey. The body is subject to constant refinements as the wheel turns, slow divergences from the original copy of BC.

    Personality: In this field you kind of have to take a good look at yourself.
    If I might say so myself, I'm friendly, and even though it isn't our purpose, I love helping people. Maybe there's a bit of showing off involved.
    I don't like fighting; I don't like conflict. You have to push me pretty far to get me to snap back. But I can, well, feel jealous.

    Equipment: When they're not in use, they return here, devoked.
    Among the celestial charities, there are two that I lack: the Blade of conflict, and the Map of teaching.

    In my left ear there is an earring, black metal, and a little rainbow orb at the bottom of the hoop. The Ring of desire, of course, I know well. It was the first thing that came to me, even before the areas of my expertise. It was more colorful, once.
    A paintbrush, with banded in silver and attached made of fever-wood. The Pen of creation, of course, is what I am, and it I have mastered to great heights.
    A little hand mirror unfolds. The left lens shows the past, the central, normal reflections, and the third, our futures. The Glass of learning came third. It was with the glass that I really left my humanity behind.
    We have all sworn to the Oath of Refounding, and it manifests as golden chains about our head. The Staff of diplomacy of mine, the contract itself appears as a golden hammer with curiously placed claws.
    A simple bowl of red clay, handmade, but smooth and polished. The Cup of definition, only in making this place has it filled so full.
    A chariot pulled by a team of flightless birds. The Wheel of space, my membership in the Outer Court. It is quick transit, but mostly confined to roads, a world already ordered for it. Luckily a road already opens before it, a lesson on the corruptibility of all things.

    The hair clip used to be a fellow student, a friend. The pressures of their dreams compressed them to this useful decoration, unable to wake, unable to die.
    A gun that she really doesn't know how to use. A wide trapezoidal stock with four barrels in parallel. It shoots some sort of rays.

    Abilities: Reality is as I say it is. Unless contested by another mind. Besides knowing the shape of things, Yone is but a weak, unskilled worker of grammar-magic, though a prodigy in one thing: the construction of magical items.

    Backstory: Disowned by her family for past sins and barely scraping by in a dead end job Inside, Yone was one of several students drawn by the Bureacat's promise of power and a better life. While a significant number of her fellow students died, she is one of the two to truly succeed and complete the lessons, reshaping her body and taking hold of great magical power.

    Maxwell O'Conner


    Alias: None, Max will do just fine.

    Gender: Male

    Race: Human, well human looking anyway.

    Age: Looks to be in late twenties.

    Alignment: Neutral Evil

    Class / Profession: Mage

    Power Rating: A

    Description: A man of nearly seven feet in hieght, Maxwell has slick black hair combed back, and said hair falls down his shoulders. The man has hollowed gray eyes, which have been known to shift color due to what kind emotion he's feeling (red for angry, green content, etc.). Max wears a a black leather jacket with many pins stuck into it. Under the jacket, he wears a blank blue shirt, and blue jeans. His boots strike the ground in a slow methodical walk.

    Personality: Charmer, but quick to anger.

    Equipment: His watch is kind of glowy, and it isn't for show. Magic powerful enough to shine is nothing to sneeze at. Other than that, Max pretty much has the clothes on his back.

    Abilities: "The Watch" allows him to:

    1) Short distance teleport

    2) See past events of the location he's in

    3) See, sort of, into the future

    Other than that, his normal powers are:

    1) Access to all different kinds of magic

    2) A manifested Aura Fear

    3) Charm

    Backstory: To come later. Maybe.

    Joe Bob

    Alias: Technically Joe Bob is an alias. See Backstory for more details

    Gender: Prefers to think of itself as male

    Race / Species: Demon

    Age: Couple Millenia

    Alignment: Direct Quote: "I like to think myself as a morally gray lightning"

    Class / Profession: Mercenary in the lightest sense of the word

    Power Rating: Solid "A"

    Description: The demon, while technically formless, chooses to manifest itself as a large amount of random bugs. From flies to cicadas, any bug can be found flying around the main "body" of the demon. The body itself is a large storm cloud which shoots purple lighting in its interior every thirty second or so. Somehow, perplexing the human mind, the demon speaks in a Chicago accent.

    Personality: Joe Bob makes jokes during combat, during everything really, and is light hearted. It is a rare occurrence that Joe Bob actually gets angry, and heaven protect the cause of that anger.

    Equipment: Nothing, the demon is completely naked. Not like it could wear anything in the first place.

    Abilities:
    1) It can swarm into anyone that it engulfs

    2) It can shoot lightning bolts

    3) It heals from electrical attacks

    4) It can fly

    5) It resists magic

    6) It's formless, so any nonmagical projectile attack usually just passes through it without any damage

    6.5) This kind of goes into the formless category as Joe Bob also has the ability to shift into a fully fledged storm

    7) It's one weakness is that it has to tell the truth, and any oaths he makes he is bound by them

    8) He can teleport once per day to any location anywhere

    Backstory: A long time ago a demon, who's name is unpronounceable, decided he wanted out of hell. It was boring there, and nothing really happened any more. So it left, and toke on the name of Joe Bob. It hopped from place to place until finally it gained the ire of another demon. Joe Bob knew that if this other demon found him, he'd be in a lot of trouble, so he packed up and left for the Nexus.

    Misc: This is another mini boss from the Dark Tower plot, I fall in love with these ideas too easily.

    • Rituals: By spending years of studying Elenor has learned several rituals, although such things usually take hours to cast and are physically exhausting.


    Backstory: Elenor (Actually named Danica) was the daughter of a rich CEO. For reasons she won't say she ran away, and now intends on never going back. Of course she doesn't want her father chasing (or more likely, sending) after her so she learned the arts of forgery.

    Backstory: Jaine was a mighty angel, in fact some texts whisper archangel (this is false) who served a small pantheon (three gods). Unfortunately "love" was supposed to be between angels, and for one to fall in love with a "mere" mortal? FORBIDDEN. Done, no requests taken. After a while the gods found out, got pissed at the mortal, (wonder what happened to him ?) and Jaine was cast out... After having everything erased from her mind. Now all she remembers are vague, shadowy, insubstantial hints at the life she had once lived.

    • Dark Infusion: Liadi can channel pure unholy power, which manifests as black flames. She can control undead with this, and she can annihilate the living a well. For obvious reasons she tries not to use it, if avoidable at all.

    Spoiler: Angels
    Show

    Angels
    Angels have the following abilities unless noted otherwise in their individual usage.
    Strengths
    • Flight: Angels may fly, due to thier wings.
    • Knowledge of the Heavens: The Angels have the ability to constantly detect those that are good and those that are evil.
    • Spellcasting: All angels have the ability to cast a small selection of spells. They cast holy spells.
    • Consecrated: Any spell an angel casts and anything it attacks with (from fists to laser rifles) is treated as holy for the purposes of a creature's vulnerabilities.
    • Return the noble Soul: Once per day an angel can resurrect a [i]willing[i] soul that was holy with a touch.
      Weaknesses
    • Intolerance: Angels are usually incompatible with all but uber-holy creatures. This can range anywhere from minor snobbery to neutral characters, to curses and threats of death to evil. Most angels can't even control the rage, so even if they are in a public space they will often say something, although they may avoid outright violence if they are in a place where innocents may be harmed etc
    • Strict Code: If the angel commits crimes against the holy religious order she serves she may become a fallen angel. If it is an accident most orders will give the angel but one more chance.
    • Holy in both Mind and Body: Angels are vulnerable to unholy effects, along with weapons forged in unholy places or by unholy characters.
      Both
    • Defiled: If struck by an evil opponent (or with an evil effect) the angel is weakened until the angel has the chance to consecrate oneself (1/2 hour of prayer). However while she is so weakened all evil creatures nearby are struck by holy, divine lighting every minute.
      Alternatives
    • Fallen: You were cast out, whether the reason was right or not. You gain the next X alternatives, and lose the intolerance, strict code, and defiled abilities.
    • Spellcasting: You now cast unholy spells, otherwise this is the same.
    • Desecrated: Any spell or thing you attack with (from a fist to a laser rifle) is treated as unholy for a creature's vulnerability.
    • Unholy Presence: You are vulnerable to holy effects, along with weapons forged in holy places or by holy characters. You are immune to unholy effects.
    • No return: Those who become fallen are never allowed to return to a religious order. They are forever "tainted".
    • Snatch The Soul: You gain the ability to snatch any soul, once per day. Whenever a creature dies nearby you can attempt to steal its soul. If you succeed you can bring it back to life (Fallen will usually bring evil creatures back to life in order to make a deal with them) or you put its soul in an objet that then acts as a receptor. If the object is destroyed the soul is released. You can not use this ability more then once on the same soul. This replaces your return the noble soul ability.


    Spoiler: Elven Lords
    Show

    The Elven Lords (Race)
    Elven lords have the following abilities, unless stated otherwise in their individual usage.
    Strengths
    • Animal Affinity: An animal will not willingly attack an Elven Lord.
    • Immortal: Elven Lords do not age, although they can be slain.
    • Immunities: Poison, Disease, Unholy Damaging effects
    • Wilderness Magic: The Elven Lords all have some small spellcasting, which is helpful natural effects. These can include healing wounds, neutralizing poisons, speaking to plants and animals, and at the most enhancing one's body.
    • Supernatural Sight: The Elven lords are unaffected by bright light, as well as utter darkness.
      Vulnerabilities
    • Aberation Weakness: Attacks against elf lords from abberations are more deadly, and elven lords are weak in bot mind and body. Thus the most common slayers of an elven lord are those that come "from between the stars", although some may have other things on their mind...
    • Nature's Attachment: Elven Lords are bonded to the plants, animals, even the rivers themselves. Thus when forests are cut down, animals slain (not including killing to eat, we're talking massacre style slain), or rivers polluted the Elven Lords themselves weaken, and they can feel the death pangs of each of these.
      Both
    • Scent: Elven Lords have an acute sense of smell, and thus effects that would sicken badsed on someone smelling them are especially, however if their sight does not catch an opponent then their smell usually does.
    • Keen Ears: Elven Lords have keener ears then even normal elves. Thus it is almost impossible to sneak by one, however effects that are sonic in nature are extremely harmful to them.


    Spoiler: Vampire Lords
    Show

    Vampire Lord (Race)
    Vampire Lords Have the Following Abilities unless stated otherwise:
    Strengths
    • Vampire's Physique: A vampire is very nimble, abnormally strong (anywhere from 2-12 times as strong as a man) and very charismatic.
    • Lord of the Night: Vampire lords can teleport into and out of any area that contains shadows, and they see perfectly in any dark (even pitch black) conditions.
    • Magic Resistance: Vampires are mostly immune to the effects of magic, excluding holy spells.
    • Vampire Shifting: Like their lesser kin, a vampire can sift into a vampire bat.
    • Phantom Step: A vampire Lord makes no sound as they move, unless they intend to.
      Weaknesses
    • Easy to Spot: While not suffering the same penalties as a normal vampire, vampire lord's
      are still easy to tell apart, as like their lesser kin they are pale, with usually dark hair, cast no shadow, and have no reflection. Thus disguising is rather useless when someone looks at the ground and sees no shadow, likewise they can simply hold a mirror up.
    • Lord Vulnerabilities: Vampire lord's do not some of the normal vulnerabilities of a vampire, instead they have vulnerability to Silver and Holy Sources (whether a thrice blessed blade, a blessed holy book or a holy symbol). They are not vulnerable to staking, beheading, or any other similar mean [i]unless the weapon is both holy and silver, in which case it can be used to do so.
    • Light Adaption: Although they are immune to the effects of the sun, they still do not adjust well. The Vampire lord takes longer then the normal human for his eyes to adapt, and they are particularly vulnerable against flashbangs, shining flashlights in their face etc.
      Both
    • Feeding: Vampire Lords must feed, and they can not partially feed on a victim. They must feed until there is not an ounce of blood left. Those killed in this manner become vampires under the control of the Lord. They must follow his orders, although they may attempt to screw with said order, although the wrath of a Vampire Lord is terrible to behold. A vampire Lord must feed at least 1/week or he begins to weaken.

    Alternate Abilities: These are alternate abilities for vampires, and replace certain abilities, each is explained below.
    • Path of the Light: "The holy type vampires". These vampires are immune to the effects of holy weapons and silver weapons. They are instead vulnerable to unholy and hell-forged weapons.
    • Magic Resistance: The vampire lord's magic resistance is overcome by evil spells and unholy effects instead of holy.
    • Daylight Adaption: Your eyes are no longer bothered by the light. You lose the Light adaption ability, and you gain immunity to effects that utilize bright light (flash bangs, flash lights). However you lose your Lord of Night ability.
    • Lover's Bite: When you suck someone's Blood you do not kill them, and you o not turn them into a vampire. This replaces the feeding function where applicable.
    • Wolf Shift: You can shift into a wolf instead of a bat. If you are a normal vampire when you shift your fur is matte-black, however if you use the Path of Light alternate you have gold or silver (at your choice) instead.

    Well, it seems that life has deposited me here, yet again. Hopefully this time I get to stay a while, as I intend on revising some old homebrew.
