The History

History:

Lorelei Cole’s family were nomadic missionaries who spent most of their career going between the United States and the Himalayas with more years spent in the latter.  When she was twenty and on break from University, she joined her family for a trip into a newly-discovered inhabited mountain range.  The trip progressed just fin until her father (who had, in the previous year or two suffered from an increasing large reserve of pride due to his successes in the Missionary field) didn’t believe their guide in the Himalayas when he’d warned them they were traveling too far up into a certain region.  The guide was vehement that they should stop and turn around, go back where they came from because, according to him, that was the area of what he had, in his own native language, described the “man beast!  Man beast!”.  He’d pointed frantically, gesturing wildly, but Lorelei’s father simply condescendingly nodded his head and calmly told the guide, “Yes, my son, all men are beasts until they meet the Lord our God.”

The guide ran back in the direction of the nearest village.  When the authorities had shown up almost a day later, it was carnage that they found, with Lorelei’s mother and father both dead and almost all of the missionaries.  Two were missing, Lorelei and her uncle, whom they discovered in the village half starved, severely injured, and confused three days later.  Lorelei’s statement to the authorities and that of her uncle garnered a brief investigation during which time she was certain that they were hiding something and knew more than they let on.  They pretended not to believe her story of a man turning into a wolf and attacking her and the others.  They told her she was delirious from the fever of infection and it was just a threatened wolf that attacked them.  The fact that her uncle’s account of what happened was almost identical to hers is the only reason she, too, didn’t start to think she was remembering incorrectly or worse, going crazy.  She’d seen what she’d seen.  It took the government only another two days to politely but firmly extract the young woman and her uncle from that country, making them promise never to return. 

Lorelei and her uncle Thomas relocated near a forest of their homeland in the State of Washington.  There, they researched and dug and researched about what they were sure they’d seen and what might happen to them in the future.  Together they endured their first moon in a camping trip far out in the wilderness and from then on their strength as family forged stronger.  They continued to learn, took work where they could and gradually made inroads to return to missionary life and the church.  Lorelei’s part in the latter was limited due to her anger at God because of what he allowed happen to her family and herself.  Her uncle, though, kept the faith. 

The difficulties of integrating her two selves, beast and productive member of society, proved trying but also helped her grow stronger.  She discovered it paramount to gain as much control over the beast as possible and emotional triggers were the most severe in Washington.  During the last year-and-a-half, increasing concern over lycan-related violence brought Lorelei and her uncle some unwanted attention.  Normally that wouldn’t have occurred, as most people in their church preferred to turn a blind-eye to some of the Cole’s strange activities.  However, they were betrayed by a young man who was frustrated from his rejected advances on Lorelei and he ratted them out to a group called Human’s First. 

Interference from members of Human’s First together with the man who betrayed them, and his followers, escalated the tensions and accusations which resulted in some fights and eventually skirmishes.  Violence followed and Thomas and Lorelei were excommunicated from the church.  Certain fights resulted in injuries and over that period of six months to a year Lorelei developed an ability to heel faster .  The reason for the violence began as self-defense; the Coles were unable to get help from the government.  It felt like their own little war.  They lost the war and evacuated from Washington to Oregon where a relative offered to help them build a new life. 

With the help of Lorelei’s relative on her mother’s side, she and her uncle were able to get legalized with the assistance of a church.  Her uncle began “The Gift of Life”, a mission outreach athletics project, and that branched off to “Athletics for Youth”, a money-making operation.  As a side note, uncle Thomas is branching off further with an underground fight club, but failed to  inform Lorelei of this activity, so for a while she remained clueless about its existence.

Lorelei maintained a lonely lifestyle and eventually and her uncle had a falling-out concerning his covert activities involving the underground fight club.  After several verbal and physical confrontations, Lorelei split off from her uncle’s enterprise and is on her way to the Bright Lights of Las Vegas!

This looks like an amazing game. I would love to write up a character sheet for consideration but need ask if you are looking for any particular species at the moment? Do you need more of a particular "type" at the moment to help round things out, or do you have a species you'd prefer not to take more of because you have enough already?

Bubby and Caela-
We are looking for almost anything, except for the position of Lupa. At this point in the game we need more vampires, weretigers and wolves. We have werehyenas in the game but they are more of the "supernatural" mob in this game. Feel free to toss some ideas and we can place you to transition into the game.



We also need male players! Common guys!

Ishta Sangrall

Age:26
Gender: Female
Orientation: Straight though she enjoys watching women
Identity/position: An Alpha White-tiger

The Appearance

Eyes:Pale blue by birth, she hides them with contacts that make them appear green
Hair:Silvery white, she used to dye it a darker blonde but has let it grow out as pale blonde becomes more popular with humans.
Height:5'8
Appearance:
Were Appearance:

Beyond the Image

Likes:Music, especially old jazz and blues; books, nearly anything she can get her hands on; movies, anything from fluffy "chick flicks", to hard core horror just depends on her mood, she also paints and writes, loves chocolates, strawberries, and honest people...those she believes those are rare and hard to find.
Dislikes:Tardiness, lying, people who act like scared idiots because of what she is instead of who.
absolutely not's:Maiming and death, most else can be negotiated if it's relevant to the story in some fashion.
Talents:Hiding in plain sight, organization, teaching others when she has the chance (never been a teacher, but she's been an excellent tutor). Being an alpha she has excellent control over her changes down to being able to do just partial shifts if needed and being able to change quickly without crashing entirely, though it does leave her tired.
Character Traits:She doesn't trust easily but once she does it's without reservation, break trust and you'll never get it back.
Personality:Ishta is talkative by nature but has learned to use that tendency to talk a lot and say very little all at the same time. People come away thinking they know her while actually having learned very little about her. She keeps her secrets to herself and is utterly trustworthy, even those who lose her trust need never worry that any secrets she holds will come out because she would never break a trust given to her; she sees such behaviour as beneath her. The only exception would be if it is a choice between breaking someones trust and protecting them from imminent danger.  Strong, loyal, she uses the bubbly exterior to hide a much more quiet and thoughtful person than people would realize is there at first.

The History

History: Her parents ran from the clan soon after they realized her mother was pregnant. Her mother had been abducted and forced into the clan at a young age and it was through sheer luck that she'd been wed to a good man and they'd grown to love each other. As that love had grown her father and found it more and more repugnant that his wife had been kidnapped and forced to marry him and they vowed to never have children of their own who would be forced into such a situation.

And then they'd gotten pregnant.

They did the only thing they could think of to protect their child from the clans isolationist behaviour, they ran. They were both strong enough for her father to take her mother's beast while she was pregnant and there were never more loving, or doting parents than Ishta's. They loved their daughter with everything they had, making sure she lacked for nothing even though they lived the life of wandering nomads to avoid detection by other clans and to keep word from getting back of white tigers appearing in any area for too long.

They taught her to love hard, but also taught her not to trust people in general, and the white tiger clan in particular. Their life on the run, and her own immense power, gave her the skills she needed to pass as human once they started dying her hair and she got the colored contacts she almost never took out. Still the stories of the clan she was, rightfully, a part of seemed fantastic and a bit exaggerated to her young ears and she yearned for a place to cal home, to lay down roots...to just be able to spend more then six months in one place!

When a fatal car wreck (a semi driver fell asleep and plowed over her parents vehicle which burst into flames with them unconscious inside) took her parents from her she decided to do the one thing she would never have done while they lived. She packed a bag and headed for Vegas; if it was really as bad as they had always claimed, she could always run again but if it wasn't then maybe she could find a place to call home.

Hey Aiden,

Would you mind explaining the above statement further?

~FeBurns~

The hyenas in the game are the people to go to for favors. They watch out for their own kind and other lycans.
Example- When a werewolf (or lycan) is infected witht he virus, normally they lose their senses and end up killing accidentally, such is the case with Varian. Under law, RpiT is allowed to arrest and persecute Varian for murder or even kill him BUT Simone, The Hyena Oba, located him and protected him until he came back to his senses. This is the case for many were creatures who are not born with the lycan virus. So on top of  various connections (shady or honest), they run a few underground sex/bdsm clubs, the silver chain being one of them. It is like a haven for were creatures, a place they are accepted openly without the lycan fearing humans.

Their business practices vary from drug trafficking/sex trafficking (up to Goldie), I am not really sure but these guys are more connected with the criminal underworld then the other Lycans, the wolves, tigers and Lions (which are stricktly NPC, no player Lion's will be allowed).

Caela- Great character but before you join the game a little information for you that will help.

The tigers are in a moment of great turmoil, their queen has gone missing (played by undisclosedtoyou- "Ashley"/Sid) and the fill in, has eloped with a tiger prince from Seattle. So she will find a city with a heavy tiger population but it is no longer unified. "Ashley" has resurfaced after  few months but her memories are not returning to her so she does not even know she is the lost tiger "queen".

Please post your sheet here

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=74017.0

And I will move it to the active character list. If you have any questions on where to get started let me know. If she does come into the city, we can get her a job at any of the established "businesses" we have in game and transition you in.

Aleksei Kumarin

Age:  32
Gender:  Male
Orientation:  Heterosexual

The Appearance

Eyes:  Blue
Hair:  Brown
Height:  6’ 0”
Appearance:   
Were Appearance:  Hyena


Beyond the Image

Likes:  Taking advantage; women; money; power; property; action; danger.

absolutely not's:  unsure
Talents:  Hand-to-hand combat; guns; drug and human trafficking; imports/exports business dealings
Character Traits:  while he can be closed, guarded, secretive, he is also courageous, focused and hard-working.
Personality: When not hunting or working, he is fun-loving and friendly and likes to party.  He’s not easy to forgive injustices.  He’s weak to the charms of sexy, generous women.

The History

History:

Aleksei Kumarin was born in Russia to a loving mother and business-minded father.  His mother died under mysterious circumstances when he had just turned twenty-one.  The men of the family (father and three brothers including Aleksei) thereafter turned their business dealings to darker, more sinister and violent activities.  Within ten years of his father allegedly becoming the founding member of the notorious Tambov syndicate in 1989 to run protection rackets, Aleksei was sent to Paris with his two brothers and a sister under the pretense of attending school and building careers.  In Paris from that day forward Aleksei and his brothers expanded their father’s empire of drug dealing via networks of nightclubs and strip clubs throughout Paris, Aleksei was put in charge of the smuggling operation that wove throughout the wharf communities.  In time he had begun branching out with under-cover organizations not connected with the Kumarin name.  His tactics for acquiring employees and bribing dock officials were becoming well known and respected within the seedy community in which he was involved and some were known to call him the King of Seine.

Aleksei, becoming increasingly disinclined to agree with his elder brothers narrow-minded ignorance in handling many of their father’s business dealings, kept quiet and continued building his own network of imports and exports.  He stays physically fit with a regimen of regular hard-core exercise and a fairly healthy diet and is disease and drug-free except for the booze and cigarettes.  When Aleksei’s father died in 1999, a shift in the family dynamics was immediate and absolute as the eldest of the brothers took a tighter reign on the Paris faction of their business dealings.  While his youngest brother made his unrest about the business known more vocally and violently to their eldest brother than Aleksei would do, he instead began a systematic break-away from his brother, Uri, opening a number of secret bank accounts and creating alliances between himself and major business owners throughout the city.

One fateful night at the end of June, 2009, the Kumarin world was torn apart and a chain of events began that would forever change Aleksei’s outlook on life and what he needs to do to survive.  First, his younger brother was killed in a brawl, then his sister(Sasha) was ruthlessly hunted by his own eldest brother, Uri, and nearly killed by him, and then thirdly his brother(Uri) was shot and killed in self defense by his own younger sister(Sasha).  She’d disappeared after that and Aleksei himself had turned into a shell of a man.  The only thing that keeps him going day after day is his secret investigation into the men responsible for the downfall of all their lives, those Czechoslovakian bastards (werewolfdogs) that killed his youngest brother and infected his sister, for yes, he knows about the infection.  He knows who is responsible.  But the quest of finding them is fraught with twists, turns, subterfuge and silence from the Czech mob. 

Aleksei then attempted to rebuild his business and while not exactly a legal manner, it’s at least without the seedier, more murderous aspects – it involved the import/export game, having left the drug dealing and other forms of trafficking behind.  He secretly continued the investigation against the Czechoslovakian’s without breaking the oath he swore to never pursue his sister(Sasha, werewolfdog). 

His quest for justice eventually led Aleksei down an alley and into a confrontation between hyenas and some other group and, caught in the brawl, he was infected with lycanthropy.  Because of the need to protect their own, Aleksei was dragged into the clan where he healed his wounds and was taught the ways of life as a lycan. 

( Will it be possible for this character to enter the game as an already-existing member of the hyena clan?)

I see no reason not to Fe,

I will talk to Goldie about it, since it is her "faction" since she is the Oba and we will need a fill in to take over for her while she is gone. (perhaps as second or third in command after the withdrawal of a player).
