    Welk

    Race: Outsider (Half Outsider Black wyrm)
    Class: None
    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    Temperament: He tries to be nice, but there's a limit. He's not overtly evil, there's only that much he can do in this form.
    Age: 190
    Height: 6’ 4”
    Weight: 260 lb..
    Hair color: None
    Skin: None showing
    Eye color: One purple cyclopean glowing eye
    Equipment: His armor, and that nice looking white scarf

    [Description]

    *Clank, clank, clank*

    A tall man, topping off at six foot four, shoulders his way into the tavern. At least, you would assume it's a man, for he's covered from head to toe in dark and pointed armor. Beneath the "V" of his black horned helm you can make out a bit of his face, the purple glowing cyclopean eye amidst the darkness. Oddly, he's wearing a long white scarf around his neck, which glows with a muted brilliance. Tendrils of purple energy drift out from beneath the crown of his helm all the while.

    He just sort of stands there, by the door, his single eye jerking from side to side, scanning the tavern's occupants. A dark halo bobs up and down above his head.

    [Backstory]
    There once was a cleric named Ventem, he didn't like our protagonist Welk's reign of terror along the countryside, but soon learned that he couldn't kill the darn thing. Some prophesy or another claimed he would live for a few hundred odd years, and he was only fifty.
    So vile Ventem trapped poor old Welk in a shell which dulled his powers. But wily Welk bit back, and Ventem was likewise weakened and stuck in a suit of his own.

    [Common Knowledge]
    - Supposedly some ancient, evil harbinger of darkness
    - While he may be evil he's not stupid, he's not particularly interested in wanton murder.

    [Notes]
    - He talks a big talk but he's not really as powerful as he appears.

    [Ongoing Storyline]
    - Getting that damnable scarf off of his neck.

    Name: Gunther Halvorson
    Race: Ghost (formerly Human)
    Alignment: Lawful Good, but willing to break the rules
    Age: before he died, in his early thirties
    Temperament: Polite, helpful, occasional witty and somewhat emotional
    Appearance: Gunther appears as he died — as a human, covered from head to toe in blackened, frostbitten flesh. A blue glow emanates from his eye sockets.
    Abilities: Gunther is incorporeal but visible to the naked eye. Because of this state, Gunther can pass through solid objects (conversely, he is unable to grasp them as well).
    Gunther radiates an aura of cold up to roughly 10 feet. He can regulate this aura to some degree, but it never fades completely. Anyone spending a long period of time in Gunther's presence could potentially catch hypothermia.
    Gunther's touch causes flesh and solid objects alike to instantly freeze. Prolonged contact with an object will cause the cold to spread and eventually completely trnasform it into solid ice. He does not know how his ability impacts incorporeal beings.
    Gunther does not know if he can be killed. The curse of the Goddess of Winter ties him to the Town; he does not know if he can be destroyed, although he is affected by discharges of energy (like magic) and by weapons with Ghost Touch.
    An extensive knowledge of languages and ancient cultures of Earth, which he notes bear similarities to that of the Town.

    Background: Gunther Halvorson was once a noted scholar and professor in the early 20th century who theorized that Earth was populated by sentient beings prior to the human race. His theories took him on an expedition to the Arctic, accompanied by his brother Theo and sister Sara. They discovered the Temple to the Goddess of Winter, who once ruled over the plane where the Town sits.

    Gunther was transformed into one of her Heralds, but managed to maintain free will as he was transported to the Town to spread Winter. Fortunately, something went wrong and the Goddess' connection was severed; his sister and brother both dropped dead and Gunther was free, although his physical transformation left him a feeble shell.

    He died and was cremated, but before he did, he tied his soul to a book in the Public Library. Years later, when the Heralds of Winter re-awoke, Gunther did as well, and he joined a number of Town characters in defeating them. For his part in thwarting the Goddess of Winter, however, Gunther was denied the thing he wanted most: death.

    His soul apparently tied to this plane, Gunther has now taken up residence at the Temple of Thor, where he has taken the last remaining priestess there — a dwarf named Marta — under his care. If you wish to involve Gunther in a Plot, PM me or come to the Temple of Thor.

    A biography of Marta will be coming shortly.

    Yes, that is about as close as I could get to what I look like. And yes, my hair is like that.

    Nap time!

    Name: James B. aka Beef
    Race: Human. Duh.
    Alignment: Ummm...can I be a little of everything?
    Class: Player
    Age: 19


    Well, basically, since it seems that a few people have been bringing themselves into the town, I figured I should. But first, I'm just going to communicate with my characters through a mysterious earpiece that they will each get. Hank won't get one, and neither will Runner. But Runner will hear me through a special wavelength.

    That means that I will be connected to my characters, so I can talk to them anytime I want. Also, I will see and know everything that they know. So watch what you say around them. I just might tell the others.

    Also, with me being a player, I get a laptop. That's standard. Which means I get internet access. Also, I have a short sword. Because I need something to hit people with. I will also have a few pocket knives, matches, and a sketchbook. I like to draw.

    I have the ability to shapeshift into things that can be found outside of the realm of the town. Examples being different Bionicles, Venom, maybe a few different X-men, things like that. Of course, with the shapeshift, I acquire the powers of what I change into. But no extra powers.

    "Time obsessed him. Miss Ostrovsky reminded me of the amazing scene in Death on the Installment Plan where Céline wants to stop the bustling of a street crowd. He screams on paper, Make them stop . . . don't let them move anymore at all . . . There, make them freeze . . . once and for all! . . . So that they won't disappear anymore!"


    Name: Pan Mariusz Burkewicz
    Race: Human (?)
    Alignment and Temperament: Neutral Good. Indifferent with a dash of cranky. Cares precious little about anything that doesn't spark his anthropological or artistic interest.
    Age: If asked, he'll claim (rather uneasily) to be thirtysomething, but most folks assume he's a good century older than that.
    Height: 5'10
    Appearance: Good-looking, if you like the scruffy professor type. Has swarthy skin, dark brown hair (curly, unkempt, getting a bit long in back) and piercingly clear brown eyes, although the look in them is a tad demented. Usually has either a contemplative scowl on his face, or a grimace that would suggest he finds the very act of getting up in the morning a labor of unspeakable tedium. Looks to be something of a nasty character if you don't know him - a Dostoevskian type. It doesn't help that he has a permanent five o'clock shadow and enjoys skulking around in shabby overcoats. Overcoats aside, he's usually fairly well-dressed, usually in some variation on a theme: dress shirts (lightly stained) with the sleeves rolled up, unbuttoned vest, a newsboy cap sometimes. He also has a pair of silver-framed reading glasses that bring out his strong profile.
    Background: Despite the fact that he really likes to hear himself talk, Pan Burkewicz hasn't revealed much of his background. Those who ask get a vague recollection of an oppressive, censorial motherland, and an anecdote about the dolors of teaching literature when the regime wants to keep the nation's professors spouting Party doctrine.

    Burkewicz became fiercely, uncompromisingly dedicated towards the sanctity of Truth and Art. In another place and time (say, the USSR) this would have made him a revolutionary and hero. In current times, this simply manifests as dogmatism, nitpickyness, grammar Nazism, an infuriating sense of intellectual superiority over this generation's crop of morons, and unwarranted paranoia towards authority of any kind. However, he isn't an entirely unpleasant person. (Almost entirely, but not quite.) Somewhere beneath the bitterness and apathy is an early lover of mankind.

    Having seen so many books get censored and burned, genocides attempted, and truthspeakers silenced, Burkewicz began to develop the idle dream of visiting every country in his world and in others, and in each land writing a novel - no ordinary novel, but a work of fiction that belongs among the ranks of Tolstoy, Hugo, Flaubert - a novel that would preserve that nation's people forever, a snapshot of the national character. Burkewicz was supremely talented as a writer, psychologist, and philosopher, but this dream was, of course, impossible. It would take money, transdimensional abilities, and virtual immortality ...

    One way or another, Pan Burkewicz got it. For a time.

    Somewhere along the line, something went wrong. Quite possibly Burkewicz simply collapsed under the weight of his own existential angst. Whatever happened, it happened around the time he showed up at the Town. Now he's stuck in a rut and seems unwilling or unable to leave. Or to do much of anything, really, beyond smoke, drink, kvetch, and come up with reasons not to work on his current manuscripts. His reputation precedes him among intellectual circles, and he's supported by sympathetic scholars who admired his earlier works. They pay for his upkeep in a nice, if cramped, bungalow in town, which is filled with stacks and stacks of books.

    [Common Knowledge]
    - Burkewicz is consistently drunk.
    - Anyone who's been within earshot during one of his benders has some idea of his past ambitions. Needless to say, some people think he's a blowhard who will die without having accomplished much in life.
    - However, if you need knowledge without the fuss, Burkewicz is your go-to guy. Whatever you need to know - language, history, craft, 101 ways to cook a gelatinous cube - chances are Burkewicz has at least seven books on the topic, not to mention a vast wealth of personal experience, and will be more than glad to lecture on the topic at length to anyone with a desire to learn. (It's kind of irritating, actually.)
    - He's far from a household name, but a well-read character might be familiar with some of his books, especially Quis Separabit?, his epic historical romance.
    - It's rumored that he's talented at magical combat, but his supreme indifference to fighting leaves this unproven.

    Height/Weight: 6' 6'', 160 lbs.

    Appearance: Everything about him seems haunted, from his stance to his white eyes. His tentacles are constantly writhing under his silver-starred robes. His belt has what seems like a dozen useful objects hanging from it, including many potions and a rod. A Tenser's Floating Disk follows him at all times carrying a huge backpack. A barely noticable magic shield aura surrounds him, emanating from his ring. There is a double-bladed sword strapped across his back.

    Backstory: Growing up, young Valstaff loved his desert-living family more than anything else (yes, certain mind flayers are capable of love). He especially loved his father, who trained him in the use of the ancient weaponn of his nomadic desert tribe, the double-bladed sword. When he was around ilithid puberty, however, they were all killed in a mysterious combination of accidents and fires. Soon, he learned of his sorcerer's powers and realized he had inadvertently caused the deaths of the only people he'd ever loved. He fell into a terrible deppression, mindlessly wandering for years and years, attacking any sentient being he could find. Eventually he stumbled out of his low point and realized he was sort of horrible. He vowed to make amends by slaying any aberration he came in contact with, and got his sword enchanted to assist him in that purpose. He would bring icy death to any who dared oppose him... but he procrastinates quite a bit.

    Common Knowledge:

    He enjoys showing off his magical abilities. He often opens and closes random doors... because he can.
    Watch your back... he sets up disturbingly elaborate practical jokes, again because he can.
    He also enjoys designing siege engines, and will gladly show you some trebuchet blueprints if you ask him.
    Seems a bit more human than most mind flayers. Fairly likable air around him.

    Notes: Ooohh... Shiny!

    Ongoing Storyline: Ooohh... more shinies! Also nothing.

    Anudda one: Johan, a.k.a. Watercat!

    Race: Natural Githzerai Weretiger

    Class: Mastermind 10 (From the Pheonix variant.)

    Alignment/Personality: Chaotic Neutral. Tends to lean towards good, but mostly stays out of either conflict. Persues the interest of water. Rather flashy and will often use his elemental powers to suprise you...

    Age: Three hundred and twelve. Still young!

    Height/Weight: 10' tall, 215 pounds.

    Appearance: Huge, bipedal tiger wih fearsome claws. He wears a dark blue cloak made of feathers over blue-tinted leather armor, and has a double-scimitar on his back. He also wears two rings and an amulet, all obviously magical. As he approaches, the air suddenly turns humid and tiny clouds form near his bluer ring. Blue is his color! Could you guess?

    Backstory: From his birth, Johan was an outcast. Born a weretiger, he was simply too unfocused to take the monk's path at his monastery. Therefore, he was branded a weakling by the sensei, and was forced to go on a journey to prove himself worthy of the monastery. He was Plane Shifted to the Astral Plane, and was nearly killed by Githyanki pirates, when he found his way to the Water Plane.

    He spent centuries studying there, learning to manipulate water, to be an effective general, and to fight. He went to an ancient cave beneath the sea and fought his way to a Ring of Water Elemental Command. Also in the cave, he learned the secrets of an ancient woman who had learned to duplicate herself. He learned to clone himself up to twice and sustain it for quite a while. He traveled back to the monastery and confronted the descendents of his friends and family, who had heard of his progress through the sensei's scrying. He presented them with his new abilities, and defeated the new sensei in a duel. He soon left and found The Town...

    Common Knowledge:

    Can duplicate himself.
    Is deathly afraid of attack dogs from one failed training excercise.
    Often uses his abilities to divide his drinks into two tiny water-men, who then fight to the death for his amusement.
    Has a Ring of Water Elemental Command.
    Can turn into liquid.
    Doesn't sleep. Or rest. Ever.

    Notes: Uses the Pheonix superpowers variant.

    Current Plotline: None.

    Krat Zander
    Can someone get Iko to be quiet?
    Spoiler
    Show
    Description: 6'2, Short black hair, like a crew cut, but a bit longer. brown eyes, and a deep tan. Built like a mountain. 18, and acts like it.(sometimes.) shaves fairly often.
    Str 21

    Int 15

    Con 19
    Cha 12
    Lawful Good. Krat is a patient, well mannered young man. He wears a deep brown shirt, faded blue jeans, and a spiked leather wristband on his right arm.
    He doesn't wear shoes. He moves the earth in the same way Iko manipulates fire. He can bend metal, but only to a slight degree. He speaks in Sienna text.
    Equipment: Carries a pair of warhammers, and apart from his clothes, not much else. Always has more money than you'd guess.

    Backstory: Krat was born on an island in an archiapelago containing four other islands. He is sort of an avatar of a being known as the Fire Dragon. Along with the Wind Dragon, Fire Dragon, and Water Dragon, he cast down the dark dragon. Iko went off to live his life, and stuff got boring without him. Krat went to go look for him, and Tiera and Aero went along for the ride.

    Common Knowledge: Knows Iko well, messes with the ground more often than is neccesary, has deep pockets, and is genuinely nice.

    Notes: Protective of women, Aero more than most.

    Ongoing story: Coming into the Town with Tiera and Aero.


    Tiera Aquas
    It could most certainly be worse...

    Neutral Good. Acts her age and then some. Tends to be sarcastic, but means well. Wears ice blue t-shirts and blue jeans, and controls water in all its forms. Can control weak people to some degree by manipulating the water in their bodies. speaks in deep sky blue text.
    Equipment: the clothes on her back, and a bit of cash.

    Backstory:Tiera was born on an island in an archiapelago containing four other islands. She is an avatar of a being known as the Water Dragon. Along with the Wind Dragon, Earth Dragon, and Fire Dragon, she cast down the dark dragon. After a while, she went of with Aero and Krat to go find Iko.

    Common Knowledge about Tiera: Tougher than she looks, and is annoyed when boys she deems 'inadequate' hit on her, which happens fairly often. A good enough person, in a dryly sarcastic way.

    Notes: Quick to anger, which tends to be a bad thing.

    Ongoing story: coming into the town...


    Aero Sietta
    All things in moderation. Pass the keg.

    Description: 5'6 Blonde hair past her ears, and grey eyes. Very slim, with slight curves. 21 years old, but is the youngest looking of all the dragons.

    Chaotic good. Though very street smart, tends to behave immaturely. sort of tomboyish. She wears a white tank top and bright blue shorts with flip flops. Controls air. Speaks in gray trext.
    Equipment: A staff she likes to hit unwary idiots with, and a large selection of bright clothes in an extra dimensional pocket.

    Backstory: Aero was born on an island in an archiapelago containing four other islands. She is the avatar of a being known as the Wind Dragon. Along with the Fire Dragon, Earth Dragon, and Water Dragon, she cast down the dark dragon. Is hanging out with Krat and Tiera.

    Notes: Unexpectedly, can drink far more than the average barbarian. And walk out on the second try.

    Ongoing story: Looking for Iko, because "He was always good for a laugh"


    And for convenience...
    Iko Mitizai
    You wouldn't hurt me, would ya?
    Spoiler

    Descripton: 5'10, mid neck length brown hair, brown red eyes. Slim, but with a good build, 17 years old now, but looks older. always clean shaven.

    Neutral good. Iko is, though bright, rather childish. He wears a pair of blue jeans, a bright red t-shirt, and a black leather jacket with the words "Born flamer" in red lettering on the back, which are fireproof, and has the power to control fire. he can also redirect lightning, but this is used much less often, and it tends to hurt him. He will speak in red text
    Equipment: Apart from his clothes, Iko owns a katana, a spear, and a weighted chain. He also has a pair of indestructible, resizing leather boots. They have no other magical properties. Now has a Mindsar, which acts like an emotion reader.

    Backstory: Iko was born on an island in an archiapelago containing four other islands. He was, at one time, a reincarnation of a being known as the Fire Dragon. Along with the Wind Dragon, Earth Dragon, and Water Dragon, he cast down the dark dragon. Whether this is permanent or not is unknown, but since the battle, he has lost the extra dragon powers he had been enjoying.

    Common knowledge about Iko: He has the power of fire. He's unneccasarily honest. When he has money, he spends it luxuriously on himself and his aquaintances. He is also supposedly able to use a powerful fireblast, but such reports are unconfirmed and easily denied. Somewhat chivalrous. Once accused of being a paladin by Magtok.

    Notes: Asking him to hit you with his best shot is almost certainly a bad idea, as he will take you quite seriously.

    Ongoing story: His dragon powers have returned. His eyes change with his mood. Is dating Sheezu, very seriously.


    Sheezu
    ... What?... Stop staring at my midsection.... That's it!
    Spoiler
    Show
    Descripton: Sheezu is a stunningly beautiful young woman from the Star Wars dimension thing. she is 5'11 and has a slim, curvy figure. she has neon pink hair that goes down to the mid back, and it never seems to get in her face while she is fighting. she also has neon pink eyes.

    Lawful neutral. Sheezu has very little patience with idiots. Her beautiful face rarely holds a smile, and her eyes are almost always filled with disinterest. she'd be a real looker if she weren't so grumpy. In fact, she is anyway. speaks in magenta text. I couldn't find a pink.

    Equipment: Proud owner of two pink lightsabers, a black t shirt and black leather pants, along with with black leather boots. She also had a pink Flare S Swoop, but it was totaled.

    Backstory: Several years after episode 6, new Sith began to arise. One of these was Sheezu. she was taken in at an early age, and has absolutely no understanding of the birds and the bees. Could probably care less. Got here completely by accident due to a virus in her ships internal computer that redirected a hyperspace jump.

    Common knowledge about Sheezu: has a mean temper, and is dating Iko. Enjoys the Haley's liquer of Trog's.

    Notes: Hitting on Sheezu will result either in a blank stare, or in lost limbs.

    Ongoing story: Underwent a major alignment shift. Was kind of sort of Lanno's more-than-friend. Was once influenced by Va'al to like Iko. A lot. this was lifted, but she started liking him again fairly quickly. Is now dating him, and it's very serious.

    Neutral Good. Carl is a random kind of person, and is also a man of contradictions. He is good looking, tactless, unaware of himself, a brilliant thinker, and dumb as a post all at once. He weilds a sword and an arsenal of magic. Dislikes fighting most of the time, and would rather talk about it. Can play any song he knows, and there are a few of them these days. Carl speaks in blue text.
    Equipment: Carl owns a short sword named Wyrmstooth, a 2nd edition Players Handbook (from which he casts his spells), an electric guitar that requires no electricity or amp to play, an ipod shuffle, and his clothes. He wears a Legend of Zelda wristband, a blue shirt with the letters HMD on it, a pair of blue jeans, a cape, and a pair of shoulder plates. Also aquired a ring that lets him cast minor healing spells, make sheilds, and identify other objects.
    Backstory: Carl led a fairly normal life in the dimension most of us post from. One day, an interdimensional portal opened beneath him, and he fell into the Town, carrying a whole bunch of things he didn't normally carry. He also miraculously gained the ability to use magic.
    Common Knowledge: A bonafide head-banger. Hoo-Hah! Casts magic for lots of things.
    Notes: Will sometimes show strange bursts of intuition or brilliance.
    Ongoing story: Finally out of the dugeon of Barinca plot!

    Name: Wyron Kelter



    Race: Human

    Class: Commoner. Training to become rogue.

    Alignment/Personality: Neutral Good. WK is amiable and friendly with a neutral disposition and no knowledge whatsoever of most things. Curious and eager to learn.

    Age: 21

    Height/Weight: Average height, average weight/build.

    Appearance: WK looks like a common farmhand. Indeed, that's what he is. Slightly shaggy brown hair, tanned skin, a few stubbly hairs on his chin. Wears plain garments such as a brown tunic and black boots. Often carries a pitchfork. Also has three small black tattoos on his face.

    Backstory: WK grew up in a remote village nestled in a cozy mountain valley. Awww. He, like everyone else in his family (and pretty much everyone else in the village), became a farmer. He farmed until he was 21 years old. One particularly clichéd (and a bit overcast) day, a trader came to his small village of...uh, well, it's not really important enough to have a name. Anyway, that trader (surprise surprise) brought something that would forever change Wyron's life. That's right, he brought a brochure for The Esteemed Zafax Nightshadow's Rogue School for Boys (the name is somewhat misleading: the school was actually founded by Kurt Ellicott, and it caters to both sneaky boys and sneaky girls), located just outisde the town. Intrigued, WK decided to try his hand at roguery. He got Cousin Brad to tattoo some meaningless black marks on his face to make him look more roguelike, then kissed everyone in his family goodbye (except for Smelly Uncle Timmy) and ventured off towards the town, pitchfork and broken compass in hand. A few plot interventions later, he finally made it to the town. He now attends the Esteemed Zafax Nightshadow's Rogue School for Boys and is learning to be a rogue.

    He still goes back to see his family on weekends. Except for Contagious Aunt Margaret, who's still quarantined in her house.

    Common Knowledge: Nothing, so far. WK still has yet to make his debut in The Town.

    Notes: Nothing to see here. Move along.

    Ongoing Storyline: None. Unless attending the E.Z.N.R.S.B. counts as a storyline. I don't think so, though, because it's not actually a thread.

    Orion Russkij



    [Class]
    Rogue 15, Savage Bard 5

    [Alignment/Personality]
    Chaotic Neutral. Slightly aloof, although will flirt with redheads or Drow/Elven females.

    [Age]
    Doesn't say.

    [Appearance]
    Mostly Human, about 6'2", average build, has a sabre and a magical (flaming) dagger. Is part drow - the amount of drow in him varies with each telling, but he most commonly describes it as "one-sixth". He appears to be a normal human, however, except for what looks like a very deep tan, and his hair is pure white (and kept cut off the shoulders). Wears a charcoal grey cloak over a light grey shirt and trousers. Often has an angry, but weary expression, but has been smiling more lately. Also has a small scar on his left cheek.

    Wis|12|+1
    [/table]


    [Backstory]
    Orion doesn't talk about his past much. When he does, you hear he once came from a wealthy family, but had a falling-out when he discovered he'd had a twin sister who was sent away at birth. Questing to find her, he finally did...just in time to see her lose a fight to a pack of goblins, and die in his arms. (He usually skips over what happened next, but you can get the hint that the goblins didn't last very long.) How long ago this was, and what he's doing in the Town, he never says.

    [Common Knowledge]
    Hatred of goblins, protective torwards women, volcanic temper that doesn't come out often but when it does...run.

    [Notes]
    Orion has excellent low-light vision from his Drow heritage.

    [Ongoing Storyline]
    Orion has fallen in with Maia and Mirage, among others, in a quest for an ancient draconic sword. He seems to enjoy their company a fair bit...

    Entering Xaviden

    Male Satyr (Warcraft) Rogue/Warlock (also Warcraft)
    Average height/weight, young adult (whatever that is for a Satyr)
    Physical: Satyr-y features, dark purple skin, dark blue fur
    Equipment: Black leather armor, crimson eyeblind, assortment of torture daggers and poisons

    Xaviden, the son of Lord Xavius (http://www.wowwiki.com/Xavius), tries to live up to his father's reputation, but his short temper usually gets him into trouble, like the time when he was banished from Azeroth after a fight with a dozen Argent Dawn Templars (don't ask). After he was banished, he stumbled upon the Town, and now seeks to conquer it and turn it over to Legion (megalomaniacs, aren't they wonderful?). He is sure to let everyone know that he is not a good guy, but he doesn't seem to be taken seriously very often.

    He has an unnamed felguard minion, courtesy of his father. While it's not particularly bright, it follows his orders to the point (as long as it involves brute force, that is).

    Introducing Scorn!

    Race: Unknown - Lycanthrope
    Age: Unknown
    Height: 6'3''
    Weight: 242 lb
    Description: Scorn is generally a massive creature made made entirely from solid muscle. He stays in Hybrid form almost all the time, now and then turning into a complete wolf but he never wears his racial form. His hair is a dark grey colour all over his body. He wears a hooded dark red robe with purple trimmings and his feat are bare. His primary weapons are his claws, which are magically enhanced, but he does carry two returning twin bladed throwing knives in special loops inside his robe.

    His personality is gruff and often violent and intimidating, it is very rare that he tells the whole story and for some reason he has a hatred for Elves.

    Backstory: Many things about Scorn are unknown, including why he is called Scorn. Some people say he is a human who was forced into becoming a lycan to save his village, others say he is am escaped convict who was being used for testing purposes. All that They know about him is that he is a high ranking member of and organization known as 'The Culling' but what this organization does is still mostly unknown.

    Scorn disappeared from the Town for a long time to take care of 'business' and has only recently returned. He carries a few new scars but is slightly less bitter. He now carries on his back a huge single bladed axe. His hate for elves seems to have melted away however his hate for vampires seems to have only increased.

    Disdain

    Race: Human - Lycanthrope
    Age: 26
    Height: 5'11'' (6'1''- in Lycanthrope form)
    Weight: (230 lb - in Lycanthrope form)
    Description: Disdain is a a graceful human with short brown hair and green eyes. He wears a white linen shirt with a brown leather waistcoat and matching leather trousers. He carries a rapier at his side, a silver one at that, which is strange considering what he is. He wears black fingerless cloves and has a gold ring in one ear.

    His Lycanthrope form is smaller than Scorn's, built more for speed and agility rather than brute force. His fur is a deep brown colour, the same as his hair. He also possesses the ability to enhance his claws for battle.

    His personality is jovial, friendly and inquisitive (which seems to have rubbed off onto Scron) although he can turn serious in a second if needed. His mind is as sharp as his reflexes and he is a very good problem solver.

    Name: Gorby
    Class: Wizard-like(see backstory)
    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    Race: Brown Kobold
    Age: Roughly 30 years old
    Weight: 40 pounds
    Height: 2 feet tall
    Physical Description: Gorby is one of the rare brown kobolds, a race known for their lack of charm. Unfortunately, Gorby is even less attractive than the other members of his race due to several long scars on his face he acquired in childhood. He has two tails and the regular number of other appendages. His face is mostly obscured by a large wizard hat he wears, but occasional glances of fangs have been reported.
    Backstory: Gorby was an infamous member of his kobold warren even before he had become an adult. He was born with another brother, who apparently had all of the smarts Gorby didn't recieve. His intelligence was short lived, however, as Gorby promptly ate him, mistaking him for food. His mother was livid with rage after this incident, and rushed Gorby and started scratching away at his face. She was pulled off, but Gorby was scarred for the rest of his life. Growing up, he was the strongest and fastest kobold in the entire warren, including all of the warriors. He would organize racing contests, which had to be ran by his father due to Gorby's complete stupidity. His father was driven mad, and one day attacked Gorby. He was squashed immediately afterward, but he managed to inflict a lisp on Gorby that continues to affect him. He compounded his low ranking by trying to be a wizard, even though he couldn't string a sentence together, let alone cast spells. They still warily kept him in the clan, but threw him out after he started organizing poison-drinking contests. An outcast, he wandered the land, promising vengeance against his enemies. He decided to take up the greatsword in response to people bullying him, resulting eventually in dead travelers. Gorby still believed himself a wizard, and eventually managed to master the simpler spells. Gorby has not yet been known to string a perfect sentence together.
    Equipment: Gorby has with him only his set of wizard robes, which he wears, and his greatsword.
    Personality: Gorby is a very stupid, unwise, and unfriendly kobold to be with. He dislikes laws and tries to avoid them, but doesn't know enough about good and evil to make wise choices, hence his neutralness. He also suffers from his stupidity; he will sometimes pick up his greatsword and start cutting people's heads off for no reason. Mostly, however, he will attempt to cast a spell at them first and then spend the rest of the time wondering what happened.

    Name: Unknown (only he knows), calls himself Kathaktos
    Race: Half-Elf
    Class: Exact classes unknown, displays numerous abilities, including both arcane and divine magic, and superb fighting skills.
    Alignment: Hard to define, shows singns of all alignments at different times.
    Abilities: All are high, but Intellect and Charisma are his best.
    Age: Not quite young, not quite old. Timeless perhaps? Only he knows.
    Height/Weight: Average for a half-elf.
    Hair: Black shoulder-length.
    Eyes: Left eye is blue, right eye covered by an ornately inscribed metal disc.
    Equipment: Dresses elegantly most of the time, but always wears what is required for the moment. His most notable piece of equipment, however, is a bow seemingly made of a bronze-ish metal, with the same kinds of runes as his eye-disc, which seems kind of unpractical to use as a weapon. Still, he places great value in it.

    Kathaktos seems to radiate an aura of respect wherever he walks, and seems to enjoy it. He is logical, but still has room for emotions, and charm is among his favorite tactics. Not much is known about his past, and he is reluctant to reveal anything. One day, he just appeared, and his intentions are unclear. Friend or foe? Only he knows.

    Name: Koneko
    Race: Giant Cat
    Age: 23 (in her years)

    [Description] A young looking anthro cat, with light grey fur, periwinkle eyes, 3 black marks above her forehead, and a white tuft of fur on her chest. She's huge. About 80 feet tall. She's really nice and playful.

    [Backstory]
    She won't tell much of her past, but the cat she was in love with was killed by her rival and now she seeks that rival, hungry for revenge.


    [Notes]
    Koneko can be voracious sometimes and may go nuts and try to eat someone occasionally. If this happens, you should probably try to reason with her as calmly as you can, especially if it's you she's got her eye on. She's used to eating smaller creatures on her home planet; who isn't? Except she eats them alive o_o

    [Stats and Description]
    Name: Timothy Worthington, although he goes by the name "Max Stoneripper".
    Gender: Male
    Age: 15
    Race: Human
    Class: Cleric of Quacl
    Equipment: A dirty, ripped tuxedo with an emblem of a flaming "Q" on it.
    Description: Dirty youth, with long black hair, green eyes, and fairly muscled arms. Fairly thin, standing about 5'9".

    [Backstory]
    Originally from earth, or a place sufficiently like it that it doesn't make much difference, young Timothy was born to a snooty, rich, fancy family. He hated this life, and ran away at the age of 8. He found a strange temple, covered in confetti with empty beer bottles lying around it. It was here he discovered the lore of the ancient god of all that is awesome,"Quacl", who's followers were apparently wiped out in some clichéd cataclysmic event that happened hundreds of years ago. He dedicated himself to learning the lore and returning Quacl to his former glory. Using ancient Quaclarian naming conventions, he redubbed himself Max Stoneripper. Practicing some spells in one of the ancient tomes, a failed planar portal spell brings him to The Town.

    [Common Knowledge]
    He's rather undernourished, and speaks with a strange accent that, to most, sounds somehow familiar.

    [Notes]
    Quacl is the god of all that is awesome. He is neither good nor evil, and his clerics can channel neither positive nor negative energy. Simply saying, he can't cure or inflict wounds. Also, he can't turn or rebuke undead. Instead, he has spells such as Distract Undead and Inflict Boogie Fever. This doesn't mean he's good at them, however.

    ((revised revised version))


    Cat Sinister

    Race: Demon / Subrace: Goethe (Literary Demon)

    Class: No stats for Cat has been established however he's listed as having an ominous prestige class called Arcane Accordionist

    Gender: ((Well none technically being a personification of literary evil))

    Alignment: Evil (He’s currently registers at 9 Kn since being revamped)

    Age: ??

    Hair: He has no hair beyond his beard which is a dull black.

    Eyes:
    Bright Yellow


    History:

    ‘Cat Sinister’ is the alias of a fiendish producer from the Abyss, his particular level of the plane seems to have a similar attitude and style to a Hollywood depiction of 1950’s New York. Cat is the only full demon he knows in AMEN as such he sees himself as the official liaison between AMEN and the Abyss. Cat joined AMEN with the purpose of expanding his theater company’s influence to that particular world with the ultimate intention of destroying it. More recently Cat has entered the town.

    Cat's career started when he came to realization about the lower planes, Cat came to believe that they were being used as a foil for the aligned forces of goods more questionable means of keeping people in line. It struck Cat that punishing the wicked was counter productive, it only encouraged people to be virtuous, the fiendish stick to to the celestial carrot. With this idea firmly in mind he decided he would try to put damned mortals he could gather to better use.

    A large number of what he gathered were formally in the entertainment industry, this convinced Cat to start putting points in profession (Producer) and began working to build up a reputation. Cat had a long string of success with his theatrical pursuit using demonic hirelings and a collection of damned writers and actors. Cat was so successful he later developed several productions made to be intentionally horrible, one was so vile that it managed to replace one of the long standing punishments for sinners of the big seven.

    Later on he began recruiting outside of the abyss, he would approach mortals in the business due for the abyss at there deathbed and offer them a second chance at life in exchange for a hundred years of service in his company. Cat liked to think of himself as the Davy Jones of Broadway. Most recently he brought up one of his troupes to the Town with the hopes of gaining a foot hold in the local entertainment sector. He also plays the accordion.


    Personality:


    Cat’s demonic nature is a big contributor to his attitude. For a demon, evil is a job so they don't pursue it very seriously outside of work. When demons aren't at work they like to escape from their nihilistic surroundings which grow dull after the first few centuries, a number quite enjoy early Adult contemporary music and light comedies. Recently Cat's character as been altered by his player, it didn't go as well as he hoped as Cat immediately turned on Miles, warping his body into a new base for himself. since being revamped Cat is prone to inane bouts of laughter and takes new found joy in atrocious acts of evil. Cat sees himself as a corrupter rather then an evildoer so for the most part he tries to get other AMENites to be as evil as they can. When actually attempting to destroy the forces of good Cat goes about it in a professional manner, he patiently waits while other plots are finished or suspended before attacking, he only gets aggravated if people ignore him. Cat doesn’t enjoy direct confrontations instead he prefers to stand to the side and let his underlings attack them while heckling his enemies.


    Powers:

    Cat has yet to cast any known spells beyond summonings and creating gates to the Abyss, which he does so usually by wiggling his hand or snapping his fingers. The rest of the supernatural powers he possesses are part of his demonic subrace. Cat has the ability to walk on any surface as if on solid ground. Cat can change his shape at will, the actual range of the ability could be unlimited, his version of the ability is quite a bit more powerful then regular Goethe demons. All Goethe are immune to effects and harm caused by poor writing. Finally Cat has a unique way of teleporting, He folds into himself and as he vanishes an odd sound is audible that can only be described as *Poik!*


    Equipment:

    Cat depends for the most part on various items he has on his person and his ability to summon allies and devices. One of His most powerful assets is his immunity to poor writing which he received as part of his subrace, It allows him to wield some of the most horrendous pieces of literature ever conceived. His inner breast pocket in his Jacket seems to be a pocket dimension from which he can draw unlimited cigars and business cards. Cat is also in possession of several artifacts


    Associates:

    Cat is very well connected in the Abyss, apparently his reach is so long that he’s known in other continuums.

    - The Goethe Theater Company: Cat’s personal powerbase, compiled from Demons, Contracted sinners and the best and worst writers in the multiverse. The Goethe are the keystone in his plans for this world, over many years Cat has perfected the art of Theatrical Production, with the slightest of tweaks he could turn a flop into a tool of Armageddon. His writing staff is also his main source of literary weapons. The Goethe demons themselves head various sections of the company in different layers, they all report to Cat.
    - Goethe: The Goethe demons were created when the abyss made contact with other continuums, they're twisted amalgamations of different ideas bound together by the raw power of the abyss. Physically they resemble shifting masses of limbs mouths and odder things, no two look exactly alike however tentacles teeth and claws are a recurring theme among them. Goethe can change their shape at will, they don't have the range of forms Cat himself has but they're own forms can still be quite formidable, they favor a shape thats close to Cat's own though. No Goethe reveals its true name, its debatable if they actually have names. Most Goethe use an alias that starts with a noun and ends with an adjective, examples include Cat Sinister, Apricot Compulsive and Ford Perfect.
    - Cat’s Doubles: After being confronted by Piratemonk about how he would come back from the inevitable death Cat commented that having an army of actors under his command he could just be a double being controlled by the real Cat from a safe place, this later proved to be true as a total of 32 has been seen together at once, whether or not he was bluffing and took measures after the conversation is debatable. After being revamped it was revealed in this Character bio that Cat's doubles are in fact low ranking Goethe. They are very familiar with Cat's mannerisms and remain in constant contact with the real Cat at all times. although they appear to be able to make gates and summons with the ease of Cat himself they actually don't, Cat uses them as a focus to create gates in the area.
    - Demon Mafiosos: Yes thats right demons have their own mafias. A number of these groups in different layers have made partnerships with Cat so he can call upon their soldiers when he feels the situation calls for a little muscle.

    Dislikes: Cat is a bit of a racist, He dislikes Drow, Vampires and Fallen Angels, meaning he hates roughly half the members of AMEN.

    Weaknesses: Why would I ever put this up you might ask? I’m hoping you gave up reading the bio half way through.

    - He's a demon, think about that.
    - Pretty much everything that would normally hurt other characters do the same to Cat unless otherwise mentioned.
    - Keanu Reeves' are the bane of all demons

    Additional Notes:
    - Speaks in a voice that "sounds like this."

    Name: Goes by Tre of the Wood, real name remains unknown to others.
    Race: High Elf, Re-incarnated as an eagle.
    Age: 218 as high elf, 7 as eagle
    Class: Druid (1'st edition D&D) 17'th level.
    Alignment: True Neutral
    Gender: Male
    D&D stats: Strengh: 14, Constitution: 15, Dexterity: 15, Intelect: 11, Wisdom: 19, Charisma: 17
    Description, Appearence: Tre normally appears as a human, as seen in my avatar. When an eagle, he aappears as the eagle in my signature. However, as he is an eagle druid, he can use his wildshape ability to appear as any animal or race, looking however he wants. When adventuring, Tre often wears armor of invisibility, making him impossible to see at all.
    Description, Background: Tre's history before becoming a druid is unknown to everyone but a select few. He fled his home at a young age and changed his name (to Tre) for an unknown reason. After becoming a Druid, he began adventuring with a party consisting of a Theif/Magic-user, Tali, and a fighter named Phenix. Phinix was killed by an ogre king, and her body eaten. However, Tali managed to recover her family ring, which is of protection (+3). This was given to her son, Griffin, who began adventuring with Tre and Tali. While the three explored a magical cave, Griffin used a Talismin of Zaggy to free a Titan named Mitra, who was imprisoned by Zeus. This caused some trouble, but Mitra managed to redeem himself and soon became friends with Zeus. Still in that same cave, Tre accidentally drank a bottle of Green slime, and had to be re-incarnated. He came back as an eagle. When re-incarnated, Tre could not yet wildshape, and thus was stuck as an Eagle. Tre gained enough expirience to wildshape after enacting revenge against the ogre king, and killing nearly all of his subjects. Tre's Party later met up with an Elven Fighter/Magic-user named Mirabel, and took on many lower level henchmen: The fighters Gork (gork be half orc), Wilma, Fredrica, Kevin, Randal (a ranger) and the magic-users Felix and Lindar (a magic-user/fighter/theif). The New party adventured for some time before taking on a job to stop the Giant attacks on their country. They Defeated the giants and had to go to the underdark to fight off the drow aiding the giants. In this campaign, Griffin became famous as the blue warrior, due to the blue dragon scale armor that he wore. The other members of his party also became famous from this, and the party managed to get rid of Zeus' grudge against them by giving Hera a Giant-sized mirror of true seeing (transported by Courgel, a Titan that assisted them in their campaign). Tre, however, remained mostly unknown due to his normal position resting invisibally on Griffin's sholder of flying overhead. The party mostly retired after the campaign, and Tre became a Hirophant Druid. The party now does not adventure (except for Tre [and Griffin--under a psudoname]), but can be called on to join up in times of need.
    Tre's Prefered method of attack is a divebomb while under the effects of enlarge animal. He attacks With a staff of striking (+3, +9 damage) and a scimitar +2. His enlargement and dive allows for a 1-6 +2 damage attack and a 1-6 +9 attack, both quadrupled. When he doesn't have time for this, Tre simply uses finger of death or Creeping Doom (500-1000 damage spread out in 1'st edition!). Tre is true neutral, but leans toward good. Tre detests peolple who call him Tree or pronounce his name wrong, but can accept it when one of his friends. Watch out all haters of nature. Don't say you were not warned!
    Commen Knowlage: Tre in a powerful Druid and an Eagle. He Is much more powerful than he seems (and more than you know!). If you are a bard or scoler, you may know his backstory, and about his party. Most have heard of Griffin, but few have heard of Tre. If you are not very learned, you know him as Tree.

    * NOTE: In 1'st edition, 17'th level is more powerful than in 3'rd. This character is epic. Look out.
