planescape, long story short, "an afterlife for everyone"
I thought of a character I could play.Player Name:
Sergio Cerberus the ThirdGender:
Bi (doesn't give a damn)Status:
His normal appearance. http://c526039.r39.cf2.rackcdn.com/users/237/602/9/photos/pby0121.jpg
I couldn't find a human one to match but he doesn't use it often.Personality:
Intelligent, passionate, incredibly protective of wards and secrets. Suprisingly flexable and matter of fact when it comes to the backstabbing politics of Hades. He is a distainful cynic towards Demons and Devils, not so much towards the new arrivals. even giving them rides on occasion.Powers/Skills:
Aside from control of Fire elements and a knowlage of gates and portals, he trains extensively with weapons of all sorts and has strengh surpassing the what passes for "normal" in Hades. Unlike most he does not discount modern human technology, having bought a hellcycle with sidecar for bulk messanger duties.Bio:
Cerberus guardian to the underworld, charged with keeping fleeing souls from escaping. of course like any Jailer, he can be bribed for the right price. Sergio is the result of a "bribe of the flesh" one of the many spawn that haunt cerberius's lair. As one of the few humanoids he soon felt wanderlust. He became a hard fighting, hard drinking, hard fucking, mercenary in the constant wars between princes and lesser lords of hadies. Recently he's found his status as a non-demon and a primal's reputation for keeping anchent secrets has him working as a high cost courier
But walking through such carnage has left a bad taste in his mouth and to him the bedroom is a place to escape from the brutality and war that incessently rages around him. He spends is time off in leasurely persuits, especally the bathhouses.
Unlike other primals and most demons he's embraced human technology where he finds it useful.
He looks down on the Princes and Marques, as in the Primal view their so called "father" is just a spoiled brat who couldn't cut it in paradise, and got his ass exiled, so he set up shop in the underworld.
Oh he's a powerful and intelligent brat to be sure. The primals have their secrets in their secret places, untouched by demon kind and kin.
So Sergio takes the prince's "end of the world, dominate the earth, tear down the gates of heaven" proppaganda as just that. Bullshit proppaganda to keep the rank and file gashing their teeth and waiting instead of slaughtering each other. the primals know if that day ever comes demons will loose, after all the creator could whipe the entire underworld and everything in it from existance with a thought, even if he doesn't, and humans aren't to be underestmated.
Occasionally he might mention the "Promse Day" to another primal, but that is a secret in and of itself.Promise Day Secrets:
When they refrence "The Promise Day" the secret is that the primal powers are allied informally with The Creator not out of rightious zeal but due to respect and mutual advantage should the end be forced.
Most primals don't think armageddion will even happen, the prophesy isn't more than a few thousand years old as far as prophies go, could stumble at any stage, and the demons loose anyway, they would be going up against The Creator of the Multi-verse who was there when they themselves were brought into existance, an army of pure selfless good, and Humans aren't as puny as the demons think.
Yeah... they're not betting their coin on the princes winning that fight no matter how eliquent their proppaganda among their own kind. They can't even stop fighting each other. On/Offs:
Blood and pain I prefer in the battlegrounds, not the bedroom. in Sergio's case it's his one secret, aside from scat, and child porn. There are few other limits to what he will do.
