That is a kicker, my character was the hand to hand combat specialist.

We can always have more than one you know.  Besides, our newest addition seems to be more of a jack of all trades more than anything.

I thought the original poster wanted the girls to be purely human with no extraordinary powers?

Admittedly, my offering for mission control may not adhere to that strictly, but I wasn't getting inspired by the idea of making an AI. Hopefully I sucessfully offset any advantages with weaknesses.

Name: Alix St Germain

Age: 20

Physical Description/Picture: A pretty, shapely young woman with unseeing blue eyes and pink hair, Alix usually wears a pair of glasses that serve as an imperfect interface between the visual word and her mind.

http://www.gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1225279

History: A blind infant found in the ruins of Paris, Alix is the only survivor of an experimental program designed to allow humans to interface directly with computers via surgically implanted microcircuitry. With a 75% mortality rate within the first month, a 90% mortality rate in the first year, and 75% of those who survived the first year ending up institutionalized, the project was a massive failure by any rational standard. Two years ago, the French government sent Alix to XCITE. Never intending her to be on the front lines, the organization did not bother to give her any combat training. Having lived her whole life immersed in pain and things the human mind can design but not process, Alix herself is probably not entirely sane, but she's very good at what she does. She enjoys living vicariously through the teams she watches over, occasionally to the point of being creepy. 

Area of Expertise: Mission Control, Intelligence and Data Analysis 

Motivation/Goals: Successfully carrying out her duties is satisfying, but it is the cessation of pain that Alix longs for. Only in the darkest hours of the night does she dream of death or loosing herself forever in pleasure rather than healing. 

Motto: The blind see most clearly.

Any changes that need to be made, I'll make as necessary, per the game-master.

My apologies to Vaulera; Banshee will specialize more in Melee than anything, as her katana's are her prime weapon of choice. And Vergil is correct in surmising that she is more a jack-of-all trades than anything, due to her considerable experience as an agent. If this really bothers you, however, I'll be happy to change it, as you did make your character first I did not realize the spot of hand-to-hand had already been claimed.

I'm fairly certain- Given the ecletic nature of the group, and the likelihood of thrillseekers- the agents would probably be an eccentric lot. After all, it takes all kinds...Preferably lovely and female. -_^ One would almost think the higher-ups had an ulterior motive, sending lovely young women into combat like that.

Well its seven girls to three demon players so that's two girls to a Demon player at the moment and one girl that they can pass around.  >:)

So we probably do need more Demon players. There were two others that had expressed interest in playing Demons endlesspie and Muse; Laughing Hyena still owes his Demon character sheet.
I would think that we would be OK with two more to keep any of the Demons from having to do too much work.

You could always ask if you could do both a demon and a gal if push comes to shove.  Just a quick idea.

i don't really like playing two ends of the same game, it removes immersion entirely. besides, i have never played a demon before, it might be fun. I will wait like 3 days and then make one

Name: Emperor Sseth'rahs

Titles: The Dragon Descendant, Sorcerer-King, Conqueror of the Marsh

Appearance: Taller then any lizardman, Sseth'rahs united the nomadic lizardmen of the swamps and deserts. A dusk green scaled lizardman standing at ten feet in height with magically reinforced bone and steel armor. His weapon of choice is a large scepter made of bones and black iron. He is generously endowed with two members for his personal satisfaction and his tail also can double as a means of pleasuring the opposite sex. The distinguishing marks are the colors of his eyes for they are golden in hue.

Powers

- Mind Control: Emperor Sseth'rahs true powers of persuasion take the form of both a silver tongue, his natural charisma for being part dragon and his sorcery. His ability to dominate someone is acute enough to make one obey him during a heated battle. Because of this Emperor Sseth'rahs rarely has to engage in combat. The draw back however is that he cannot use this ability upon multiple targets to such a degree.

- Acidic Vapor: Emperor Sseth'rahs iconic skill from his dragon heritage takes the form of a breath weapon that can be adjusted to deal harmful damage to a person or their equipment. Take note that a dragon-bone item does not suffer such ill effects.

- Invoke Lust: Emperor Sseth'rahs has had much time and practice in the sexual arts to the point that he has brought sorcery to aid him in his sexual conquests. With his magic he can heighten sensitivity to pleasure, cause physical arousal, assume the illusion of a desirable mate for his victim or summon demonic tentacles to torment and harass the target.

- Elemental Evocation: By means of the scepter the Emperor can channel his sorcery through it and assault those he wishes to defeat through sheer force if he has no qualms about leaving them alive. His primary powers with the scepter include the element of earth, wood and water for they pose little harm to his kingdom and uses them as both means of primary defense with barriers or to assault his targets.

Ban: The lizardmen are still reptilian by nature and the Emperor still shares his kin's weakness to extreme cold thankfully. They are extremely vulnerable to it and can quickly be dispatched with the proper tools. Also the Bonegnashers are a different type of demon all together requiring weapons of silver to be more easily dispatched. The Blood Lotus are extremely vulnerable to fire as most plants are and these demonic plants are no exception.

Typical Minions

- Lizardmen: Classified as another self aware race they were once nomadic warriors but now pressed into a full fledged and united kingdom under their sorcerer king reveling in the conquests and victories he brings to them. He encourages the ransacking of cities and towns claiming the women and daughters for whatever hellish servitude awaits. The females of the species have once been considered identical to their male counterparts but now for whatever reason they have taken a more human like allure to them and being granted more feminine qualities. Whether this is the sorcerer king playing God with magic or a natural evolution of cross breeding is a mystery.

- Bonegnasher Mercenaries: Bloodthirsty and aggressive in both violence and sex it is hard to imagine the gnolls, a demonic cross between humans and hyenas working with the Emperor but somehow with his wealth and charisma he has managed to quell them. They are the forefront of his forces and extremely rough with those they conquer. Women are utterly broken by their frenzy and men are left caked in blood. They hold know concept of mercy and see the weak as playthings to their whims.

- Blood Lotus: These natural demonic plants take the form of an appeasing batch of blood red flowers, capable of luring the victims into dropping their guard with its alluring fragrance and beauty. However beauty is only skin deep and the plants are interested in only reproduction and feeding. They use natural aphrodisiacs to arose their victims and reproduce by placing small pods inside the unfortunate so that they may devour the soul of victim and use their now lifeless body as fertilizer for new life. It is highly recommended to remove them via oviposition if impregnated for it is fatal to leave them inside for a prolonged period of time.

Personality: Calm and calculating Emperor Sseth'rahs uses his mind and his might seeking every advantage he can and doing anything to better his position against his enemies. He is ambitious and always seeking a way to gain more power especially if it causes the downfall of humanity and leaves him the unchallenged ruler. He does not care of what means he uses to bring success to himself or his kind so long as it works. When angered his entire strenght is brought to bear in both his minions, resources and his powers. No one knows why he would ally himself with the other demons nor of his grudges with humans.

Catchphrase: "Kneel before me and accept your fate mammal." "Come and embrace your one true love." "You shall enjoy this in time just as all those before you."

Just the slightest quibble, Vaulera- I'm sorry, but I'm rather anal about spelling and grammar, to be honest. And, uh...Well, the lack of punctuation on your part is a little troubling. Might I impose on you to use capitals/commas and so on? I have to admit it's a little troubling thus far.

Only issue I have, LH, is your ban. Evidentally, I've so far failed to explain what a Ban is supposed to be, lemee give it another shot. Qualifiers for a demonic Ban should be things you might be able to find on the shelves of the metaphorical military Wal-Mart without having to special-order them, but nothing you'd bring on a military sortie without knowing ahead of time that you should be. In this case, like Vergil's succubi having 'weaker than ordinary demons' was basically having no Ban at all (since the effects of a Ban are to injure/weaken the demons), having "enchanted dragon-bane weapons forged from the bones of a true dragon" is so incredibly obscure and rare as to effectively be no ban at all. A Ban is also meant to be universal between the Demon Lord and his minions, though greatly reduced in strength for the Lord while potentially deadly for mooks.

I have natural sunlight or artificial UV rays (because my demons are shadow creatures), Vergil chose gold (because of the metaphysical significance between gold and love). For a lizardman/dragon, you'd want something similarly thematically appropriate of similar scale. Flame-retardant foam from a fire extinguisher burns them perhaps (dragons traditionally breathe fire), or they cannot break armor made from reptilian skin (so snakeskin leather is like full plate to them), or something weirder, like being unable to harm anyone prominently displaying the trappings of royalty (because dragons in the stories kidnap princesses all the time). Or you could pull on the strength/warrior-culture aspect of the lizardman/gnollmen cultures, and forbid them to ever attack someone who has not attacked them first, for a more psychological Ban. Or something else, but I hope you get the idea by now.

Well, we do have three demons now at least, so we COULD potentially start this thing up if you want Glyph buddy, just until Hyena edits though we could just avoid him for a bit and all so it's not unfair or anything as far as his ban goes as it stands now.  I LIKE the idea he had, but I agree that it'd be a bit hard to go that route with him and his goons.  That's just my two cents though, take em or leave em.

Yeah, I'm not concerned with stuff like 'power level' in a freeform game so much as the theme/ethos of the whole thing.

I'll be able to try and start an IC thread tomorrow.
