    Pending a proper avatar, she's the female in that picture
    Kristy “K'rshian” Kristine, Kris
    Formerly of the Third order of Etina
    Power Level: B

    Height: 4’ 6”
    Weight: 25 KG
    Gender: Female
    Race: Catfolk
    Country of Origin: Mikeria
    Professions: Monk
    Current Occupation: Not Employed
    Last known location: Trog's Tavern
    Posessions: Shurikens, traveling gear and clothes
    Disposition: Curious, Energetic, Spunky, Friendly
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral


    Background – Kristy comes from a family of 5 brothers, and it shows. Being the only sister made her a bit of a scrapper, but gave her a strong sense of willpower and convinced her to seek out her fortune outside of her tribe. She joined a monestary that, though uneasy about her race, took her in as an equal. One day, she happened upon a witch boy named Sue who had been abandoned by his uncaring master. With the help of a friendly paladin, she took care of him and became best friends.

    One day...something terrible happened, and she and Sue lost their dear friend.

    They set out on an adventure for a new world, and had many adventures there with a new group of friends, but that is long in the past. Kris has grown beyond her original limits, and has entered a new world, curious about what other realms offer her curious mind.

    Recently, she has taken up the art of Denimancy, and is currently learning the basics.

    Abilities – Kris is an extremely skilled martial artist, with few peers in terms of hand-to-hand combat. She uses her size and her speed to her advantage, and is easily able to take down much larger, more dangerous foes. Though she has no magic power to speak of, she is able to tap into the inner energy of her body known as "Ki" in order to perform superhuman feats.

    On top of this, she now possesses amateur abilities as a denimancer, able to bend the denim clothes that she now wears to her will to create various shapes and enhance her abilities.

    Characteristics – Kris is definitely the kind of girl who would leap before she looked, but she prefers to solve her problems non-lethally whenever possible, hence her intense training in how to land non-fatal blows. She is as respectful to any race as she is to her own, which is to say she treats everyone like they are no more important than herself, and considers bigotry to be horrible.

    Weapons and Equipment – Though Kris has on her a few items that offer magic enhancements to her abilities, such as a belt that enhances her agility and a vest that protects her from harm, she carries few weapons, save for a series of shuriken that she keeps hidden on her at all times in case she requires a ranged weapon.

    These days, she also wears a denim jacket, pants and gloves which she can use with her denimancy to create various denim-based objects that are tougher than the denim they are originally made from.

    "Couldn't stay away forever."

    Gender: Female, She/Her
    Race: Human Blightwalker
    Age: 26

    Appearance: Carrie is about 5'4", pale and with dull black hair to match her shaggy black wings. Her eyes are a warm amber hue, and while she's still thin, she's got some actual tone on her body now. Her pretty face is marked by scars; one extends down from the outside corner of her left eye. There are more, including a diagonal one starting by her left shoulder, going across her sternum, and ending on her right side at her bony ribs. Her hands are a dark reddish-orange like iron-rich clay.

    Carrie tends to dress pretty simply, but nearly always wears a pair of elbow-length gloves with locking clasps at the wrist and hem. She's taken to wearing glasses.

    Abilities: Carrie's wings are flight-capable. As a Blightwalker, Carrie's hands are full of energy that harms living matter. She can project this energy with effort and discomfort; she vastly prefers not to do so, and generally wears gloves to protect others from herself.

    Andreas Emeral
    Alias: Andy

    Gender: Male.

    Race/Species: Cyborg.

    Age: 24

    Alignment: chaotic neutral

    Class/Profession: scientist / Headhunter

    Power Rating: C-

    Description: Andy is a 1.90m / 6'3" tall male. The only thing that separates him from being human is his left arm. This arm is a machine, it is colored like his skin and it took a close look to see the difference. He wears a scientist cloak over his normal clothes and hides his left arm under it.
    He has dark mid long hair that bows to the left side to hide a scale behind his ear. His left Eye has no color but he wears a blue contact lens. His other eye is brown.

    Personality: He is a closed person at the first met, but you need to know him better to see what his personality is like.

    Equipment: Aside from normal clothes he wears the scientist cloak. IN addition he has his left Iron arm that can be used as weapon. The power core of the arm is a mana ore from Deus Mechanicus it includes some of the lost Andy had in the accident like his hopes. It is a machine and caused of that not be effected by Mind changing/Mind attacks. It takes over the controll of Andy if he is passed out. It is able to fight for him but, because he don't feel he will act mostly suicidal. At last the manaore is like a battery that absorbs some magic, the more magic is in the air around him, the more he absorbs. It has a maximum, if it is overloaded it will shoot lightnings to relase some power. If it reaches 300% of the maximum it will explode not sure what will happen in that case. Andy will,now that he knows that, work on something to make this usefull for him.

    Abilitys: He knows how to handle a gun and a sword but his skill in this is very poor. Futhermore he can use several gadgets of his left arm and he is still working on upgrads.
    Known upgrads:
    Grab: Andy can shoot his arm a 6m away from him and draw it back or draw himself to the hand.
    Andy posessess a Green Lantern Ring. At the beginning he was bad with it, but at the time now he trained much and really get used to it very quick. His special attack is a Titanic raamming the enemy. The Lantern skills also include walking through materia like incorparal and invisibility, but people see a green light when he moves to fast.


    Backstory: At young years he grows much interest in his father’s work. His father works at a lab and tried to combine technology to humans with help from a wizard. Andy helped him much and at the age of 21 he became a scientist, too. Because Andy can’t reach the level of knowledge to help his father he tries to go a different way. His test with rare metals and other recourses made him very popular in a short time. But then an accident happens. It was his 22nd birthday and he thought to take the day off. He forgot that the experiment he worked on can collapse if no one watched after it. At the end of the day and a giant Party for him he remembered it and rush to the lab. But it was too late. In the moment he wanted to open the door the experiment collapsed. The explosion destroyed his lab and, because he stood at the half open door, it also took his left arm and hit him at his head. The pain let him pass out. After he awakes he lied in an unknown place and feels no pain. Sleep drunken he walked to the bathroom thinking that this was all just a dream and he drunk too much at the party. After he passed the mirror he stopped and watched at himself. His left arm looks more like a machine now and his left eye missed the color. A few seconds later his father came and told him all. He found Andy without a sign of this arm and immediately decides to test his invention. The new arm is a combination of Technique and magic. It has some inventions inside and with the magical component the owner feels all like if it is a normal hand. Andy was shocked about the decision and left his father. A watch at the calendar told him that is his birthday again but 2 years left. Walking down the streets without a goal was boring so Andy decides to take the first job coming up that has nothing to do with his father. A wanted poster flew into his face. With the thought: "Hmm Headhunter. It will be nice to see the new arm working" he began his new life.

    Professor Matt Davidson
    Power Level: E, Lvl 1
    Height: 6’ 2”
    Weight: 85 KG
    Age: 28
    Gender: Male
    Race: Human
    Country of Origin: Inside
    Professions: Teacher
    Current Occupation: Not Employed
    Last known location: Has Not Appeared Yet
    Posessions: Textbooks, Reading Glasses, Apartment
    Disposition: Formal, Polite, Spacey, Distracted
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral


    Background – Jim Davidson was a normal inhabitant of The Nexus...well, as normal as a Nexus inhabitant could be at any rate. He was an average human student learning foreign languages abroad. No magical powers, no connection to any mystical planes, and about as much combat training as your average duck. He had assumed he was going to lead a fairly normal life.

    For all intents and purposes, he still intends to lead a normal life. It just so happens that he might also have hitherto untapped psychic powers that he is unaware of at the moment.


    Abilities – A master of foreign languages, and also possibly supercogniscient.

    Weaknesses - Doubts himself frequently.

    Characteristics – Jim Davidson has always been fascinated by the world of languages and literature. He constantly keeps a book under his arm, usually the latest novel he's been reading, and enjoys nothing more than a good book. He became a teacher because he wants to show the new generation how important reading and language can be.

    Weapons and Equipment – His reading glasses, which do little more than help him read. And a seemingly endless supply of literature in his apartment.

    EMILY LORN


    Alias: Many. Often uses the name Lix, 'Short for Elix!', despite the fact that that is only mildly more like a name. A smattering of other used names include Maya, Jessica and Lauren.
    Gender: Female, almost all of the time.
    Race/Species: Human, generally.
    Age: She tends to act like she's about seven, but generally looks like she's about seventeen. Her actual age is a question she refuses to answer. At all.
    Alignment: Tends towards chaotic or good, but not always, and not necessarily in combination. Detests Lawful Evil.
    Class/Profession: I guess you could call her an adventurer, the head of a small 'empire', or several other things, some of them very rude. She'd probably go with one of the rude ones.
    Power Rating: Emily's major ability is that she takes on several different forms-each with different abilities. Each one is around a B level, but this variety gives her significant adaptability. This probably boosts her to a low A rank, or low 7.
    Description: In her normal form, Emily has long, curly brown hair, partway down her back, and deep brown eyes. She tends to smile widely, and is rather pretty. In her hair are two bunches of bells, one on each side, that ring as she moves.
    She tends to wear a long, lilac dress, sometimes with a breastplate
    Personality: Most, although not all, of Emily's sub-personas share personality aspects. She tends to be bright, friendly, flirty, and easy. Despitye her cheerful demeanor, she is easily upset-and these depressed periods can last anywhere from a short few hours to several weeks, depending on the situation, the cause, and the company she keeps.
    Equipment: By some inexplicable phenomenon that no-one understands, when Emily changes the aspect of herself she is, her clothes and equipment change too. The only thing that she keeps completely constant is a pendant; a Latias. When asked about it; she generally changes the subject. If someone touches it, she glares at them hard enough to break bones. If someone were to try and take it... they would quickly regret it.
    Abilities: Emily herself is a mage of significant power. (Magic the Gathering mythos.) But her truest ability is that of the Realmswalker. (My creation.) This allows her extensive travelling capablities throughout the multiverse, to a greater extent than almost anything. A 'side effect' of these powers is the phenomenon of Realmaric doubles-beings in other realities who are their equivalent of another. Sometimes, doubles even exist in the same reality-and Emily has a very large amount of doubles.
    When a Realmswalker encounters a double, they both faint-and when the 'walker awakes, they learn their memories, abilities, and some of their personality. However, after a certain point, a being has enough doubles that they can't hold all their abilities in their head. At this point, they tend to shapeshift into just one of their persona at any given time. Some of her known persona include an immature Mephling called Maya (d&d), and a powerful katon-specialist shinobi called Emiri (Naruto).
    Seen only occasionally is a familiar of hers, named Vladimir. He has a fondness for vodka, speaks in a bad russian accent, and has a penchant for conjuration spells. For example: 'Summon Tank.'
    ...
    He is a sealion.
    Backstory: Emily herself has a rather simple, even dull background-she grew up in Dominaria (MtG), until she caught a terrible plague. She was healed by a powerful healer-a shinobi named Rin (Naruto). The healing spell had a side effect-it awakened the spark of the realmswalker, and the generally accepted thing to do was for Rin to teach the girl.
    Her drink problem became worse during this teaching, but Emily prospered-she had a skill at finding doubles that surpassed almost anyone Rin had met.
    Miscellaneous: There is a tendancy for doubles with strong emotional bonds, such as familiars or pokemon, for the Realmswalker who 'acquires' them to also gain a duplica of the familiar and/or pokemon.

    Persona
    Spoiler
    Show
    Maya, Mephling Sorceress: (d&d)
    Maya has long white hair, and bright blue eyes. She wields a sword of tremendous size, half as long again as her three foot plan. Insectile wings sprout from her back, and two tiny horns sprout from her forehead.
    Maya is highly childish, and adores flight.

    Emeria, Seeker of the Third Dawn: (Exalted)
    Emeria has a headband around her forehead, hiding the black symbol of the Dawn caste solars. She appears unarmed-but with ease can summon her oversized, long daiklaive, or a powerful essence cannon.
    She detests injustice, and has little self control-she breaks down if confronted with problems she can't control.

    Meidani



    Gender: Female

    Race: Human (Solar Exalted)

    Age: 30, she says, but she only looks in her mid-twenties.

    Class (or approximation): Zenith Caste Solar Exalted

    Description: See image. Meidani has a wonderful personality, always trying to make people feel comfortable and safe, somthing she seems very good at doing.

    Abilities: Meidani is a Solar Exalted, of the Zenith caste. This means she's good at interacting with people (especially inspiring them), and she also has some skill in martial arts. These skills are supplemented with semi-divine abilities.

    Backstory: So far, all that is known is that she was kidnapped by slavers as a young baby, and the man she came to view as her father saved her and raised her. (More to come when I feel like writing it up)

    Riace Bendetsan, Sidereal Lynx

    Gender: Male
    Race: Human, Lunar Exalted
    Age: 23 (Years)
    Place of Origin: Areel City, Greater Humaniformic Dome, Nettle
    Class or approximation: Expert, Sorcerer, or New Moon Lunar
    Power Level: B-?
    Description: Similar to picture. Shy, impulsive, otherwise reliable.
    Abilities: He can paint things, and fix certain kinds of machines. He can also change shape and has miscellaneous special powers, but...
    Backstory: Riace lived a normal life on a well-traveled planet in the process of being terraformed, excepting one trip to the racial homeworld in his youth, and nothing much exceptional happened to him. There was a brief involvement with piracy, and he took up a job as engineer aboard the cargo ship Radiant Kestrel.
    After an unfortunate encounter with the same, now vengeful pirates, the ship made a crash-landing into Nexus-space. Though heavily damaged, the ship was eventually repaired enough to allow his fellow survivors to return home, while, (excepting one trip), he elected to stay behind. Was involved in a relationship with Celia, his tutor's sister, but hasn't seen either of them in a long time, and so spends much of his time with his hobby of painting, and traveling the Nexus.
    The fact that the pirates have since tracked him down a second time, and in defeating them once and for all he received a Lunar Exaltation suffered a severe mental breakdown, has nothing to do with this. The greater part of him refuses to accept that this has happened, and he hides his animal features even from himself, maintaining that it was all a hallucination that has perhaps permanently damaged his mind. But he was trying to learn magic, and this has planted some doubt in him as to whether he is correct.

    Alias:Len
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 29
    Alignment: Chaotic good
    Class/Profession: Sort of a Jack of all trades
    Power Rating: C+ or B-
    Description: 6'2", short, dark brown hair, scars on his right cheek and the back of his head, muscular, but not overly so. He usually wears a wide brimmed black hat, scarf; dark, heavy coat, and baggy brown pants.
    Equipment: He wears a belt with an ocarina strapped to one side, and a long knife strapped to the other. Has two short, wavy blades strapped upside down under his coat. He also has a portable, harp-like instrument that he sometimes carries in one of his sleeves. Many, many knives.
    Abilities: If Len concentrates, he can create projections of himself that can act independently of him for a small time, or he can create multiple projections that he can control with his thoughts. This requires a lot of concentration though, so he will start making mistakes if he uses too many in a fight. He is also quite skilled with his sword. Oh, and he can juggle.
    Backstory: Len comes from a little Town called Barthan, somewhere east of Trog's tavern. He doesn't remember much besides that, because he was knocked on the head in a fight shortly after leaving his home. More on Barthan to come later.

    Race/Species: Human.
    Age: 24
    Alignment: Chaotic Evil.
    Class/Profession: Witch.
    Power Rating: C to C+. 5 to 6
    Description: A mid-height woman, wears black leather clothes and a pointed hat. Her hair is long, red, and beautiful, her skin pale and smooth. Her features are soft and tender, but she has a sort of mischeivious, evil expression. Red eyes, not demon-like, they don't glow, but their color is red.
    Personality: Not a bad personality, she's quite likeable, but you'd do well not to cross her, as she can become rather harsh. She has no sense of guilt for any of her actions and is sure she is right. Think Cell Block Tango ("He had it coming...").
    Equipment: Leather clothes, pointed witch's hat, whip.
    Abilities: VERY proficient in magic. Can use elemental spells as well as Dark Magic. Classical Spells such as transfiguration, enchantments, and potion making are quite her specialty. But most importantly: She is very intelligent.
    Backstory: Used to work for an Evil Genius in an island he owned. He also dated her. One day, he decided to break up with her. So she blew up the island. With him on it.

    Description: 6'1", he has dark brown scruffly hair that could probably use a cut. He has light brown eyes. He usually wears wool clothes and carries a magical sword with him. He's somewhat shy but isn't afraid to talk to people, would just rather not have to talk to new ones. A bit insecure but in an area that he's comfortable in both of these seem to just disappear for the most part. Could be considered cute or handsome by some and is defiantly not fully a man but neither a kid, right in the acquired area of life.

    E.R.G.O. Mrk. IV

    Alias: Extradimensional Reconnaissance and Gatherer Operative. Or just Ergo.

    Gender: Semi-organic automaton. Voice can be male or female. For convenience, he will be described here as male.

    Race/Species: Semi-organic automaton. Specifically, a very old one.

    Age: Has sat dormant for several hundred, or even thousands of years. Was activated approximately twelve years, four months, twenty five days, eight hours and fourteen-point-two seconds prior to the completion of this character sheet.

    Alignment: Technically neutral. Might be guided either way, depending. Some of the acts he performs for experiments and sample-gathering, however... They're less than ethical.

    Class/Profession: Terminator (as in a dangerous robit)/Scientist/Bio-geneticist

    Power Rating: C-B. Essentially, he's somewhat scalable. Though he may sometimes use very disabling attacks for the capture and study of humanoid specimens.

    Description: Somewhere between six and eight feet in height, a robot-looking thing in plated armor stands before you. His armor's color appears to be grey and red, a very flashy tone. This can change to camouflage on a whim.

    He is bulky and intimidating in stature, most of his body except the joints encased in curving, locked-together body armor and hazardous environment protectants. His lower legs curve backwards, ending in three-toed, thick feet. These gleaming feet are almost clawlike, and they look capable of gutting a grown man. His hands, too, are three fingered with a single thumb.

    His head is a pulsing, semi-organic mass of nanomachines and odd tissue, covered in wires and odd bits of technology. Well, on the inside. On the outside, it's a rounded, reddish helmet with almost no visible features. There are some slight depressions on the front and sides of the helmet, above where the mouth, nose and ears would be, to give it some character. It has a sunken, white-glass visor etched with flowing symbols and curving lines.

    Personality: Despite the fact that he's a robot, and is designed to stick to a sole purpose, Ergo was also designed for sentience. His personality has slowly developed in his time awake, and it has made some odd changes.

    First off, he despises good and evil. He finds that they're both wastes of time, and for real 'good' to occur, knowledge must be advanced. Good, in it's flaws, solves nothing in the long run. It preserves otherwise useless sentient beings, in some cases, out of belief that they're lives are worth something. He has found no reason to believe such a thing, so he tends to avoid it. However, mercy still exists in the robot's mind. And he prefers to avoid unecessary violence. Of course, this personality is subject to changes in character development.

    Still, knowledge is foremost in his goals. He believes the advancement of general knowledge should be put ahead of all other goals, for knowledge leads to the betterment of all things. In particular, he's currently trying to gain further understanding of divine and abyssal life forms and magics. It helps when you despise them both. Did I mention he believes Good and Evil, and their constant fighting, are holding back advancement of knowledge?

    Other than this, he's a generally cold, pragmatic creature. He prefers isolation to his regular jaunts out exploring the multiverse, but he realizes sitting and doing nothing won't advance knowledge. He's artistic, and is desperate to try and be creative. To leave something that's his in the multiverse. Though he enjoys gathering knowledge, he wants to leave some of his own behind when he finally shuts down. This is why he thinks so hard about morality and philosophy. He's not really sure of anything.

    But he's pretty damn close.

    Equipment: A variety of non-lethal weapons and experimental equipment. Exploratory vehicles (including space-vessels), a gigantic lab, and records. Lots of records. He keeps holo-books of every scrap of knowledge he can find, transferring information directly from his vast personal databases into his 'works'. His 'library' is very precious to him.

    He has all kinds of future tech. Short-term memory erasers, syringe guns, electrical weaponry, etc.

    And scanners, scanners, scanners. What scanners he doesn't have in his 'head' (he has two seperate 'brains'), he keeps in his lab. He can scan everything from the most minute magical levels to the precise type of matter that makes up eldritch horrors. He has tech scanners, mana scanners, psychic scanners, and so much more. Best of all, he has all kinds of extraction and capture devices to go with these scanners. He's very good at being prepared.

    This equipment, as he is a gatherer unit, is subject to little additions as things go on.

    Abilities:

    -Superhuman strength, speed, durability and endurance. He is a robit. His focus is not in strength, however, so those characters who are designed for fighting can overpower him.
    -Genius-level, logical intellect. Vast knowledge on a variety of subjects, and a very pervasive knowledge at that. However, his data-banks have limits, so he can only keep certain knowledge on hand at certain times. For example, if you want him to be able to fly a specific model of fighter jet, he needs to go and get the records from his library.
    -Able to add a limited number of 'mods' to himself for specific missions. Some of his favorites include his syringe gun, a cloaking device, a code-cracker, a jetpack, a big stun-baton, and a syringe pack. The syringe pack holds a variety of solutions in easily loadable syringes. One might boil your blood in your veins. Another might be a massive muscle relaxant. Yet another might be a magic neutralizer. Of course, he keeps a limited supply of each.
    -There might be something I've missed. This is a new CS.

    Backstory: He is one of the last remnants of a lost civilization, something I won't elaborate on right now. I might never need to. Since he woke up over a decade ago, he's hunted across the universe for new knowledge.

    The Nexus has fountains of it.

    Nep

    Gender: Male
    Age: 30 (He thinks... actually, 6 MONTHS)
    Alignment: Lawful Evil Neutral
    Profession: Assistant Librarian to Drifter in the Eternal Library
    Power Rating: E- or 0
    Description: Rusty Brown scales, red eyes, but wearing a set of clothes that were supposed to be for easy work... and looking like he's been though the Abyss.
    Personality: Obedient to Drifter mainly, but if there is danger, you can expect him to be trying his best to run away from it, most likely with a half-dozen books Drifter saddled him with.
    Equipment: Other than a set of clothes, all he has is a library card. Most of the time, though, he also has a book or two, due to the tasks Drifter needs him to do.
    Abilities: A weak kobold... how weak? His story involves getting kicked out of his tribe due to being not strong enough to set a trap properly. His one advantage: running when not encombered with books.

    Backstory: Created by the Lore Grimore in response to a child's wishes, he was left alone when the Grimore dismissed all the rest of the magic. (More later, after servers save)...

    Crissellea Lachonues


    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Human, apparently
    Age: 23
    Alignment: Neutral good
    Class/Profession: Merchant Manager
    Power Rating: D-
    Description: She stands at about 5' 7". A young woman she could be considered very beautiful and has soft facial features and even softer looking clear blue eyes. Her brown hair falls down to her shoulders. Her skin is an almost sickly pale white and her entire frame seems like it is very fragile. Crissellea has lived most of her life inside being coddled by her parents because she was of such a sickly health. They have both passed on leaving her in charge of a very wealthy mercantile business with dozens of various branches. Her health overall has only improved slightly from her childhood.

    Backstory: As a child Crissellea was always sick. She was born sick in fact. The doctors back then said she wouldn't survive for a week, then once a week had passed they said she wouldn't last a month, then once a month and then a year they where simply astounded. In there minds no child that sick should have survived. Though this wasn't the end of doctors for her. She would regularly get colds and be in bed for a day or two recovering from it. Her parents cared for her perhaps a bit too much isolating her as a child and having so many doctors around. However on her healthy days as a child she would sometimes follower her dad around the house as he did work and she learned how to run the family business because she did this. Eventually her parents started to let her see various suitors for her hand in marriage when she was old enough. She hated all of them. What Crissellea really wanted was a knight in shining armor like she had read in the books while she was confined to bed because of sickness. Unfortunately as about the age of 19 both of her parents passed away, first her father then her mother, in about the space of a year. She has then been running the Lachonues Foundation and its subsidiaries ever since.

    Tzimfemme

    Appellation: The Nekkid Mage
    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: I quit counting. The body never wrinkles.
    Alignment: Strongly Chaotic.
    Class/Profession: Blue mage, cleric, mad scientist, chocolatier, lieutenant, philosopher. . .
    Power Rating: Lives life at D; capable of B.
    Appearance, Physical: Human, female. Very short for a human, long brown hair in locks & brown eyes, changeable skin tone (think A Scanner Darkly changeability), normal build. Nekkid, blue headband.
    Appearance, Mystical: Pale blues in a lava-lamp swirl, silver cord to Minta and two other points. True name: No result. Pings Chaos strongly.
    Personality: Worlds-weary veteran, or blood junkie in withdrawal, or stiff-necked queen, or mad philosopher--I come here so little that it's like a new reincarnation every time, so find the phase I'm in from what I'm writing at the time.
    Equipment: The Lobotomy, a hand-and-a-half kludged flail made from crowbar, chain, and harrow-tooth dagger. An inexhaustible supply of chocolate. A blue headband.
    Abilities, Magical: Moderate ability with time/blue/technobabble magic. Possesses, but does not use, aura and truename magic. Can power vampire powers with an infusion of vampire blood, comparable to an oWoD revenant.
    Abilities, Physical: Fights with a flail and acrobatics. Poor at dodging but good at fighting through the pain.
    Backstory: She dug her way out of the nine hells but got damaged along the way. She became an archmage, raised an army--the world ended. She dug her way out of hell again. Armageddon, again. Again and again. Some things stuck; most things didn't.
    Miscellaneous: My RP tradition allowed for polychronic time, and this one doesn't. When I write a few paragraphs about past, present, and future actions at once, it's not godmodding but an attempt to meld my presence with actions that happened out of my waking hours. GMT time zone.

    Minta Rose

    Appellation: Neato Necro Gnomie Girl
    Gender: Female
    Race/Species: Gnom(i)e
    Age: Seven and dropping. . .
    Alignment: Strongly Chaotic, strongly Evil.
    Class/Profession: Black mage, necromancer, tinkerer, explorer. . .
    Power Rating: Lives life at C; capable of B.
    Appearance, Physical: Gnomie, female. Knee-high to a human, indigo hair & eyes, pink-pale skin, slightly chunky build. Zombie-leather smock with many pockets.
    Appearance, Mystical: Unhealthy colors, silver cord to Tzimfemme and two other points. True name: Maralinda. Pings Chaos strongly and Evil strongly. Soul has a "SALE AGREED" notice attached.
    Personality: Cheerful, curious, superficially social, and amoral.
    Equipment: More junk than anyone can possibly inventory. Just trust me on this one. If I sat down and listed all the cool trinkets of necromancy, tinkering, and girlhood she's accumulated, I'd be here until Christmas.
    Abilities, Magical: Necromancy--you name it, she's done it. Also enjoys casting damage-over-time spells a la the EQ necromancer or WoW warlock.
    Abilities, Physical: Tinkering everything that can be tinkered and several things which can't. Poor dagger fighter. Excellent ability to dodge & escape.
    Backstory: Minta tangled with archmages including Tzimfemme, learned how to be one, and split rulership with Rosemary, a vampire. She bounced back from the nine hells despite writing a contract with the devil. After awhile she discovered guilds and the fun to be had in hanging around groups of (mostly) like-minded people.
    Miscellaneous: Minta's an archetype of the Cheerful Death-Obsessed Little Girl, so as long as you dot the i's in "skellie" and "gnomie", you should be good to go in partially moving her. (Godmoding Minta is approved if compatible with her personality. If not I'll just retcon it.) GMT time zone.

    Sunshine

    Alias: n/a

    Gender: Has no apparent gender.

    Race/Species: Appears slightly wolfish. No creatures in the Nexus are of the same species.

    Age: Unknown.

    Alignment: Is probably closest to lawful evil, though can be chaotic when it suits it.

    Class/Profession: Mage is closest to it. It’s not like Sunshine can’t fight too, though…

    Power Rating: B+ or perhaps a 7.

    Description: Sunshine is a huge, bipedal, vaguely wolfish-looking creature dressed in some kind of black robe, and covered in long, shaggy brownish hair. It looks to be close to eight feet tall, and has enormous hand-like 'paws' bigger than its own head, with each 'finger' ending in a long claw. Its arms stretch down to where, at a guess, its knees would be. It has a long snout and piercing yellow eyes on the front of its head, and slight tufts of hair where you would expect its ears to be. When it speaks, it reveals long, sharp teeth that look as though they could rip your head from your body quite happily.

    Personality: Pursues power as much as anything else, in a logical kind of way. Sunshine is happy to suck up to those above it to gain favour, and is equally happy to rip their faces off to take their position. It respects those with more power than it, and tends not to bother much with those it considers below.

    Equipment: Seems to pull books out of nowhere at times. That apart, nothing.

    Abilities: Sunshine has a wide variety of spells, hexes and suchlike at its disposal, both elemental and non-elemental. Just about all of them are offensive, but it can perform basic healing too, as well as teleport short distances. It also has great natural strength, and its skin is remarkably tough. Its claws are also extremely hard. A bit of a tough cookie.

    Backstory: TBA

    Miscellaneous: Sunshine only gives pronouns to those it has immense respect for.

    Sunshine will occasionally wander out of wherever it is staying, and seemingly just walk into the wilderness, not returning for hours. A skilled, well-hidden tracker might be able to follow Sunshine and find out where it goes.

    In the event of Sunshine dying, its body will disappear. Some time later, Sunshine will reappear, seemingly resurrected.

    Destroyer, there'll be another just like you... (OK, so it's not technically a werewolf. Close enough.)

    Subject of Experimentation Twenty Three


    Alias: Es-Ee Twenty Three, SE23, Wally
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human
    Age: 14
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Class/Profession: Schoolchild, Soldier, Sorcerer
    Power Rating: D+
    Description: A regular human of average height and weight for his age. He usually dresses in blue jeans, a T-shirt, and boots. His head is shaved and his eyes are a brilliant blue.
    Equipment: Modern pistol in a holster on his belt at all times. He also has a knife in his left boot and a smart phone. He carries a large array of weapons and equipment in a long steel case with many locks and clasps. The contents include but are not limited to: an assault rifle, a grenade launcher, a sniper rifle, various grenades, bullet proof vest, helmet, army rations, sleeping bag, flare gun, emergency cell phone, ect. ect. The case is magically enlarged on the inside, of course.
    Abilities: Some basic magic powers that manifest at times of great stress and emotion, usually as a silver light that physically manipulates things. He has extensive survival training and excels at aiming and using most guns, though he is not trained to fight swords and other medieval melee weapons. Can speak "Haliaeetic", which is the language of some birds of prey from his universe.
    Backstory: Comes from an alternate Earth universe where gods are physical manifestations of various animal species. The animal gods fought among each other for human followers (who gives them their power) and divided up the world into theocracies, which all strangely resemble real-Earth countries. SE23 comes specifically from a county ruled by a Bald Eagle god, Lord Leuco. The boy himself is an orphan who was used in complex military experiments (shoot magic radiation at him) to give him magical powers. The Super-Soldier project was scrapped, however, so they sent the children away. SE23 wound up being sent to PACK.

    Riv the Insane



    Alias: Riv, Mad Scientist Extraordinaire, Me.

    Gender: Male.

    Race/Species: Mostly human, with some grafted parts and 20% protein content.

    Age: 1 year old to Infinity, depending on your understanding of space/time

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral Crazy

    Class/Profession: Mad Scientist.

    Power Rating: On the Quinsar scale 24, on the Neon Knight scale B. This is however subject to change dependent on how ell equipped he is, fully equipped he's A- to A or 30 on the Quinsar scale, while without any of his equipment (including various added body parts) he's a zero on any scale.

    Description: Riv looks pretty average for a human, black hair, average height. He does however wear a combination lab coat/duster, and a very fancy set of goggles he's constantly altering.

    Personality: Odd. He lacks all knowledge of social norms, does not understand the words "safety", "no" and "acceptable collateral damage" and is perfectly willing to discuss things that would make normal people (Normal people in Nexus? Fat chance.) retch. Other than that and being a supervillain, he's a pretty nice guy.

    Equipment: The list would take up all the storage space on the net.

    Backstory: Riv was born with a talent for techno-magic, the ability to channel magic through wires, circuit boards and any other piece of tech handy. Sadly Riv simply didn't have the patience for tech-wizardry, prefering a kind of magic that would let him just blow stuff up instead of transforming a integrated circuit into a technological wonder capable of quadrupling a computers processing speed, seriously, that stuff was boring. So instead he became a mad scientist and now enjoys a exciting career of blowing stuff up, fighting eldritch abominations and being possessed by his own mustache.

    Show
    A lot of gold. Half a dragon hoard, in fact.
    Generic ye olde weapons (like sabres, cutlasses, scimitars, muskets, shotguns, shanks)
    Clothes (range from outrageous "Cap'n Jack Sparrow" pirate outfits to regular street clothes) The most noticeable of these is an elaborate ermine-fur cloak. Hopefully not made from people she knew.
    A wands is made of willow and creates growing plants and fungi, while the other is helliron and creates hellfire while inflicting pyromania and psychopathy on the user.
    A bag with magically regenerating rocks, which come in three types; "mint", "rosemary" and "pepper". When smashed, the mint is a flash-bang, the rosemary creates a splash of acid, and the pepper is a sonic bomb.
    A necklace made of gold, with ten six greenstone orbs dangling from it, each attached with a small latch system; it feels slightly damp, despite being completely dry. Causes invisibility when worn.
    Pink cellphone with Caramelldansen ringtone.
    A golden telescope, presumably magic, that can zoom in to see far away things in great detail.
    Brass ring that protects from poison.
    A sword that glows blue whenever humans are near.
    A billhook (type of polearm) that explodes into fire when it hits things.
    Rusty iron wand that creates rust.
    Rope wand.
    Engraved wooden staff that causes the growth of a bramble bush.
    A red rock with black veins that will accelerate healing when pressed against a wound.

    Abilities: She can change from ermine-form to human-with-ears-and-tail form at will, though she can't create clothes, so will transform quite naked. She is a skilled shot and sword-fighter.
    Backstory: Yar, if he be wantin' a backstory, ye be lookin' in da wrong place! "Me agent's been tellin' me ta reconsider, so imma give ye the basic rundown. Ah'm from one of dem alt-ern-ate di-men-sion tingies. Me father was a pirate and me mudder was a rich bitch. Got me 'at from 'er, "inherited" it, the pirate way.

    Abilities: If it dies, it goes on to the next life. It can steal the lives of others (through nomming them) to gain lives and get smaller. It can jump through windows as portals, and various other random eldritch powers. As Bast? You don't want to know what kind of stuff she can do.
    Backstory: Bast was one of the Old Ones, hanging around with all her other eldritch abomination buddies at the dawn of time. I don't know exactly their backstory, so Rebo would need to fill stuff in. Anyway, instead of getting kicked out of Earth or locked away to slumber for all eternity like her kin, Bast got a sweet gig as Goddess of Cats for the Egyptians. She wasn't actually such a cat person, more tentacle-y, before this worship, but the human faith molded her form, temperament, and power. Eventually, some humans realized having a fickle little kitty with godlike powers wasn't a good idea, so she was locked away in the actual form of a small black kitten, only able to unlock her potential after the mortal form died. To solve this, the wizards who locked her away gave the cat nine increasingly stronger lives so it wouldn't ever die, as well as the ability to devour the life of others. Such a monster was much preferable to an unleashed Bast. And now the kitten romps around the Nexus, waiting to find someone to kill it dead nine times or for the Stars to be Right.


    And, now in the Nexus alongside THAT CAT are the starspawn Anippe, Chione, Fukayna, and Akila! Each usually appears as a sphinx or a black and white cat, and they all have the ability to influence or outright control minds, as well as psychically communicate with their mother if she's Awake.

    Alecsander "Alec" Barkley
    Age: 19
    Gender: M
    Race: Drehexial
    Appearance: Alec in casual clothing, without his pancho.

    Abilities: As a Drehexial, his powers are, in order, Lightning - Drain - Earth.

    Lightning is pretty obvious, it gives him great control over lightning and electricity. This is his main power.

    Drain is a secondary power. It gives him the ability to drain energy from others, whether they be objects or people, and use that energy for various purposes.

    Earth is a minor power. He gains pretty good low-light vision, but not much else.

    ((Details to be filled in later. Everything is subject to change.))

    Dante Jay

    Alias: Jake, Whisper, Celexus.
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Emotional Vampire (Feeds off emotions not blood or anything)
    Age: 16 (672)
    Alignment: Neutral Good;
    Class/Profession: Aide (Helping scholars, librarians, field military and engineers, anyone really)
    Power Rating: Medium. He's got superhuman qualities of resilience and speed but is dependant on other people for sustenance. He's also not any stronger than a human or anything.
    Description: Tall for a human teen; Pale skin and green eyes that glow a little. Elegantly Handsome in a cold way, hard lines and strong jawline. Walks like he's ready to dodge something or sprint away. He wears a grey t-shirt and black trousers. He sometimes wears work gear, and wears mirrored sunglasses when he wants to hide his green glowing eyes.
    Personality: A little depressing to be around, not because he lacks charisma (Far from it) or because he's not nice, but he is draining a small ammount of your emotion from you. Charismatic, fun, and eloquent; he likes to jest and make friends. He occasionally seems to stop and think, then launches into an energetic passage.
    Equipment: Small knife, swiss army knife, and also a pair of mirrored glasses. He's got a little book which he records things in, and a pendant (leaf made of an unknown metal) he wears round his neck.
    Abilities: Being more resilient to a normal human and being immortal, that's a strength of his. He's also got some quickness but he's still just as strong as a teenager. He can't enter places without permission, and has to recoil from holy symbols. He's vulnerable to sunlight and holy water.

    However, he can use his vampiric ability of draining emotion to good uses, for example, draining fear away from soldiers, or calming the angry mob. However, doing so costs him the emotions he's taken.

    He's got a bit of training in a large variety of things, mainly picked up from various odd jobs and apprenticeships. (Depending on the universe he's in)

    Backstory: Born to vampires, Dante's been a natural vampire for his 16 years of life. In the early years of his life, his parents were hunted down and killed; Part of the general prejudice against vampires. He fled and worked odd jobs by the vampire age of 8, working in libraries, workshops and other places where outside was not required and he could hide his vampirism. Aqquiring a fair ammount of generalist skills in a variety of areas, Dante's got a knack for for picking things up quickly and is skillful for his age.

    At the age of 12, Dante joined the military, where he served as an advisor for field captains and an aide to engineers. He discovered his vampiric abilities could be handy in combat, calming the beserk enemy and draining the fear of his allies. However, such emotional tramau leads Dante to become severely depressed; He offset it by engaging in sex of duty, enjoying the raw emotion and uplift that it brought him. Now, he's trying to turn a new leaf over and so is looking for something more meaningful, and someone else.
    Miscellaneous: Dante will die if he does not feed properly in 5 days. The emotions he can live off must come from intelligent living beings who can feel emotions.

    Wally Serana

    Ellen Serana

    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: human
    Age: 19
    Class/Profession: Spirit Hunter
    Power Rating: 2 or D
    Description: He has messy red hair, green eyes, he wears a black jacket, grey pants, blue shirt and brown shoes. He is tall, lanky and skinny.
    Personality: Calm, odd, somewhat detached from normal life, a little adrift.
    Equipment: A green sword
    Abilities:
    Ghost: He forever has a ghost named Ellen that is a female version of him following him around. Only he can naturally see Ellen. Ellen has her own personality and mind. Ellen can possess objects and weak-minded people (NPCs) but not strong-minded people (PC's). Ellen forever serves as an adviser and spy for Wally, able to go place he can't. However Ellen has a spiritual bond to Wally that prevents going to far away from him, the same thing that allows Wally to see and hear her in the first place.
    When Ellen possesses Wally himself, it allows him to see spirits and his sword to touch spirits.
    Backstory:
    Ellen has always been with Wally even when they were children. Wally always tried to let people know about Ellen, but everyone assumed it was just a kid having an imaginary friend. Little does either of them know that Ellen is Wally’s twin sister that died in childbirth.
    Ellen continued following Wally into his teenage years, by then they had become fast friends. Ellen experimented with her powers, possessing people and objects to help Wally to pull pranks or to help people out. However one day a curious possessed Wally and Wally found he could see, hear, and touch all spirits.
    Soon Wally found out about malicious spirits that give people trouble and do evil. So he bought a sword and struck out on his own to battle the spirits with the help of Ellen- as well help people along the way. He has been spirit-hunting for years now and his best friend is the spirit following right beside him, Ellen.
    Miscellaneous:
    Wally can only talk to Ellen out loud, making him seem like a crazy person to all the people who can’t see and hear spirits.

    FULL NAME: Alexander Darius Pyborne

    Alias: The Apprentice
    Gender: Male
    Race/Species: Human of 15.5 years, ethnicity specifically Asian.
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Class/Profession: Mechanist, Lawyer (basic knowledge from a book coupled with persuasion skill), Scholar, Apprentice to Lord Thadius
    Power Rating: 5 by Quinsar's Scale
    Description: Asian male about 5 feet 8.5 inches. He has raven black hair with piercing blue eyes. A mesomorph in superior physical condition. Tan skin with hairy legs. Usually straight-faced with slightly curving eyebrows. Medium cheekbone placement and all teeth natural and intact. Scar running diagonally across his face from a duel with Lady Legion.
    Equipment: Alexander wears either a suit or a black-plated heavy stealth armor suit with assorted weapons hidden within including an energy beam (right arm) sword, a laser((chest weapon), a minigun (left arm), spiked boots, and a blade extending from his forearms in a half elipse for slashing. The suit does not have any hidden weapons in it but has pockets for carrying random objects. Alex generally stows a high caliber pistol, a dagger with blood gutters, a good amount of platinum, a mask, dark robes, an identity card, and a hologram projector in these pockets. Alex has recently obtained a runed sword labeled Patronus forged of star metal which emits dark energy rays when swung (these rays are mainly for show but they do make the sword more powerful than it would be if it wasn't attached) which he currently uses as his primary weapon.
    Abilities: Martial Proficiency, Precision Shooter, Mechanist, Basic Legal Training, Exceptional Writer, Persuasive, Quick Reflexes, Intelligent, High Pain Tolerance, High Determination, Doesn't Feel Remorse, Loyal, Tactician, Fencer, Semi-Skilled Runner, Logic, Command Voice, Hacking Skills (Only when in Armor), Can Cloak in Armor and Use Light to Make it Seem as Though He Is Somewhere Else or There Are More of Him
    Backstory: This male was born to a family of modest means. He was exposed to many different societies and learned high morals as he was brought up. He was instructed in a variety of subjects as he studied to become the top scholar for his age. He also took a highly active role in his community. One day, he returned home to find his family threatened by a gang. He promptly eradicated the gang's presence in his town and was linked to several murders after which he began to learn various fighting methods, tactics, and psychology. He was first exposed to mechanics through his mother who served as a mechanical engineer for a manufacturing company in the town. He was recently a target of the gang which was to receive retribution for the death of the members of the chapter of the gang in town. He dispatched a few of the gang members then, noticing too many of them were present to deal with, he rapidly carved the symbol of a flame into his chest that split himself into two parts (darkness and light). When the wound stopped bleeding, the two halves merged to form him again. Word spread that two strangers had slaughtered a dozen or so people in town. These events led Alexander to be sent to Nexus to salvage what was left of his life (additionally, everyone that knew him in his own town was slightly fearful and suspicious of him, including his parents who sent him away because they feared for their safety, not his). He was possessed by his grandfather during these killings and went insane when that soul left him. He was cured when he saw his reflection. He then went to seek out his master, Lord Thadius, who had instructed him in tactics. After Alex had left the town it had been torched by the gang and everyone was killed except Lord Thadius who turned to the powers of darkness to survive this event. When Alex found his master in this state, he decided to join him, becoming his apprentice. Together they plot against the land known as the Nexus with a number of automatons they constructed to support them.
    Miscellaneous: He may be rich and powerful but he is not a magical princess. He is a semi-skilled runner because, when faced by a significant amount of adversity he will flee!

    ---------------------

    The Abominations

    Age: Whatever Alex's Age is at the moment.
    Gender: Genderless
    Power Level: 3

    Backstory: Spawned from Alex's burning desire for revenge and genetic enhancement endeavors (mainly using information compiled from his suit's monitors), this creature cannot speak.

    Description: They now stand, six feet tall, tattered robes, glowing red pupils, blue biomass under a polished crystaline exterior. About the normal size of a human, but without remorse...without love or capacity to trust. Nothing but the crystal lining the body and the glowing eyes. Out of where his hand once was there protrudes a blade, honed to a fine edge. His other hand remains nearly unchanged, except for the fact that there are no longer fingernails and a pulsing light is being emitted from this weapon. No organs seem to be suspended in the fluid in the body...it is, by all definitions of the phrase an alien creature. And it was created for a singular purpose...to destroy all who stand in its path.

    Abilities: Remorseless, Cannot Speak, Completely Obedient, Immune to Mind Alterations, Can Shoot Energy From One Hand, Decent Swordfighting, Decent Armor, Neural Uplink to Pyborne and Thadius as well as to other abominations

    No Equipment Other Than Their Bodies
    No Alignment
