These are all the current XCITE team member profiles. Should we start a proper character thread for the team members and Demons?

Molly has deep red hair, brown eyes and rather pale skin. Standing around 5'9" she has long legs and a trim waist, offset by an impressive bust and broad hips.History:
Molly was raised by a single mother, one of many children in her generation who lost a parent to the demonic invasion. Though Belfast never fully fell into the hands of the creatures, at the height of their power in the area they held nearly two thirds of the city and Molly's father was one of the many men and women who were killed or captured in the long, bloody battle to retake the city. Growing up she idolized her father and the other soldiers, but was never terribly athletic. With the nanosuits yet to be invented, she figured she had no real hope of actually getting to fight the creatures. Instead she poured herself into her studies with borderline religious devotion. Breezing through school, she graduated from college at age 18 and was quickly snatched up by the R&D department of XCITE operating out of the reclaimed portions of Belfast. Just a few months later the city was finally cleared of demonic intruders, somewhat to Molly's chagrin.
After a crash course in Japanese she was transferred to XCITE's Honshu division and assigned to the team studying the rare demon specimens brought in alive. Things were rather unremarkable for nearly two years, until the day a research assistant failed to properly secure one of the creatures. While the team was occupied by their experiments the demon began to shake off his sedatives. In an instant the creature snapped the improperly secured straps holding him down. The doctors within arms reach thrown bodily across the room, and an unfortunate female researcher nearby was snatched up by the creature. He failed to notice Molly across the room as he stripped the girl's clothes away. Quickly and quietly Molly slipped from the lab, sprinted down the hall to retrieve a weapon and had the creature sedated again before the security team even arrived.Area of Expertise:
Scout/researcher, can act as a field medic in a pinch. Quinn's speed and stealth capabilities are her greatest asset to the team, but she considers her primary goal to be gathering as much information as possible when bringing in a live specimen isn't an option.Motivation/Goals:
Demon eradication, though deeper down Molly just wants to live up to her father's name. 'The Fight' as she calls it has pretty much consumed her life since she could string together enough coherent thoughts to understand what was going on, to the point where it has eclipsed every other aspect of her life. Though in truth she's quite lonely she has a tendency to drive others away, sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. Social skills were never a high priority for Molly and spending the vast majority of her free time in study never gave her much of an opportunity to develop them anyway. She tends to be terse and a bit unfriendly but she's unfailingly loyal and would dive onto a grenade (or, as the case may be, giant rape-happy monster) to save a teammate. Motto:
Standing at a tall height of 6,2 Valerie has Chin length raven black hair and sharp features to accommodate a large bust and stark white skin. Her thin features deceive the eye and give off an aura of frailty.History:
Daughter to the head of the Hjorth Danish crime syndicate Valerie grew up in extremely luxurious mansions spread across the world and trained from the age of three in muay-thai and Brazilian jujitsu. Now twenty three she is an eighth dan "blackbelt" in both.
In her spare time between rigorous gun and knife training she read through the various mythos of different cultures' and religions. following this a demon attacked her fathers mansion in Nepal and taking footage from the security cameras she found out the super natural was in fact quite real. Catching wind of a demon hunting squad from a Hjorth syndicate informant she decided it was her calling and her resume fit. Area of Expertise:
Hand-to-hand combat specialist
Valerie is motivated by her beliefs that she is sent by the Norse deities to slay demons. Motto:
If I die Valhalla awaits me with open arms.
Physical Description/Picture: Miyako is taller than average and has long black hair that falls to her bottom and is blessed with a curvaceous build. She is vigilant and moves with purpose.
She carries an assortment Ninjutsu weapons as well as a Tanto knife and on occasion a Ninja-to.
She uses an experimental Type 77 Charged Particle Beam Sniper lance.
Her Nano Suit has additional defensive plating on the arms and has a built in Tasers in the armored plates on the back of her hands.http://hijiribe.donmai.us/post/show/948159/beatrix_bremer-black_hair-bodysuit-carnelian-highr
Miyako was just a child when the Demons attacked Japan and Tokyo. Despite her family’s wealth and power they were not spared the death and destruction wrought by the Demons on Japan. Hidden by her parent as the Demons attacked her family’s mansion; she watched as her family was ripped apart by the Demons; she was rescued by the Japanese Self Defense Forces (JSDF) and while still splattered in the blood of her slain family she was whisked off to her to grandmother on Kyushu which became a refuge for the armed forces desperately trying to turn the demon horde that was ravishing the main Island. Her family owed its power and prestige to their legacy as one of the three surviving original Ninja clans; the Mayonaka no Chi (Blood of Midnight). Embracing her family heritage she was trained to hunt and kill the demons that had slain her family. The Ninja clan has decided to combine its efforts with those of XCITE in the liberation of Honshu; although the clan undoubtedly has other clandestine goals in addition to the stated goal of cleansing Japan of the Demon presence.
Area of Expertise:
Miyako is trained in the classic arts of Ninjutsu being a master of Ninja Jūhakkei, the eighteen disciplines. She is currently serving as the units Sniper. Her Ninjutsu skills letting her find the perfect snipers perch for her shots and then vanishing afterwards.Motivation/Goals:
Avenge her family, to destroy the invading Demons, and restore Japan.Motto:
Silent, Unseen, Deadly
A lissome violet-haired beauty, her hair done up in two tight buns, or twintails as the mood takes her. She has a swimmer's build, with deep green eyes and creamy skin~ With a reputation of being rather mischievous, and something of a tease. Generally, she wears a lighter variant of the typical nanosuit, the better to augment her agility, and carries 'light' weapons like the X-Pistols and the vibroknife...As befits her role as a skirmisher. History:
Mei-Li's a thrillseeker, the youngest daughter of some well-off but boring CEO somewhere; Given how she'd never inherit, it falls to her to enjoy her position as much as possible. It could be argued that all this is part of her 'rebellious' phase, too...But there's nothing that's *quite* as much of a rush as hunting demons. Everything else just pales in comparison. Possibly to her own surprise, the admittedly flighty girl finds that she's rather enjoying it- And this is rapidly becoming a 'hobby'- She'd never call it a 'job'- that she's dedicated to. Area of Expertise:
While not a dedicated hand-to-hand combat specialist, Mei-Li's an excellent skirmisher; She knows several relevant martial arts (Particularly Kenpo and Wing Chun), and is entirely capable of getting up close and personal with the enemy. (Though she *does* tend to rush ahead to get credits for kills.) Also, she has a knack for tinkering with electronics in general- She usually overcharges her energy weapons with a 'hot-swap' pack that discharges the entire magazine in a single shot, at the slight risk of the whole thing melting/blowing up.
To enjoy herself/Find out more about demons/Get on the high-scorer's board, and hence famous! Motto:
"One day at a time. *giggle*."
Echo (actual name unknown)Age:
Echo has a short and lean figure, but is the among the fastest of the XCITE team. She has an Asian appearance with long dark red hair. She usually wears a lightweight, armored jumpsuit, usually in black to blend in shadows. She is often carrying a pack on her back which allows her to reload twice as fast and a belt with connecting hip-holsters for her assortment of handguns, machine pistols, and submachine guns.History:
Little is known of her past and background, but what most people know about Echo is that she was one of many agents in one of the United States' secret government agencies, who knew about the Demon onslaught before the general population had any chance in fighting them. Her squad was on its way to Ground Zero is New York when their helicopter was shot down. She was the only survivor. She was found by XCITE soon after and joined their forces fighting the demons. They were glad to find out that she knew more about these supernatural beings and how to fight them.
Area of Expertise:
Echo is the XCITE's Sidearm Specialist, excelling in combat with handguns, machine pistols, and submachine guns. Not prone to staying in one place at any one time, Echo tends to use her speed and agility to get an advantage over her foes.
Having the demons kill off most of your team was very traumatic to Echo, but she wasn't going to let them finish the job. Her ultimate goal is to rid Earth of the demons and give mankind a second chance. She does not want to become another survivor with her comrades killed or used for other purposes.Motto:
Don't talk, Just shoot.
Data Files [DEMONS] Honshu Division
Prince of Demons, Stalker In The Shadows, The Black-bodied OneAppearance:
Pitch-black shadows compacted into a slender, long-limbed humanoid form. Two luminescent, pupil-less eyes in an otherwise featureless face. Has two legs and arms normally, but can sprout additional limbs at will.Powers:
Can animate and control shadows, solidifying them into arms or tentacles, teleport through shadows, and snuff out artificial light sources to create darkness.Ban:
Concentrated ultraviolet light, either from the sun or portable UV projectors.Typical Minions:-Shadowfiends:
Animate blobs of darkness, rather like a massive inkblot with glowing red eyes when at rest. They can condense their rubbery, fluid bodies into arms and tentacles to strike at enemies, and are quite capable at entwining and grappling victims. Old or strong shadowfiends can adopt more creative forms, from winged bat-like monsters to humanoid shapes.-Nether Hounds:
Huge, hulking dog-like demons, capable of becoming almost invisible in shadows or darkness. They are strong, tough, vicious, relentless, and dumber than a bag of rocks wearing dunce caps, rarely used for more than shock troops or guards.-The Blind:
Human cultists sworn to Sceadugengos, who ritually gouge out their eyes in a prayer of fealty and are gifted with a mystical sixth sense that replaces their ruined vision. They often masquerade as ordinary blind people to disguise themselves, but fight with ferocious and fearless, if mortal, devotion.Personality:
As the partially self-appointed leader of the demonic entities that have made Honshu their hunting ground and personal fiefdom (if only by means of being capable of beating the crap out of any challenger to the position), "Scad" constantly varies between almost farcical malevolent plotting and total exasperation at his (in his opinion) far less capable 'allies'. He and his personal servant demons are phobophages, feeding from and growing strong on the fear of humans, so he is a great sadist who delights in tormenting captive, giving them the illusion of escape again and again only to drag them back into horror and depravity at the last minute. His minions spawn from the shadows of humans literally frightened or shocked to death, so he can benefit equally from captives taken as breeders by his compatriots - though they still compete amongst each other, to his amusement and encouragement.Catchphrase:
"Don't be afraid of the dark...be terrified."
Lilith, the Mistress.Titles:
The Ultimate Pleasure Fiend, the Dark Seductress, and Devourer of Men and Women Alike.Appearance: http://www.wacom-asia.com/community/submission/images/14/1544.jpegPowers:
Shapeshifting - Able to become any female form they wish with but a thought.
Aphrodisiac venom - Fangs in the upper lip contain potent venom that sends the brain into sensory overload as well as increasing desire and arousal. On males, they produce more seed that they feed from, as well as their souls at the same time during sexual intercourse.
Life Drain - Any physical contact with a demon like Lilith is a danger because they feed on the life of both men and women. While they prefer men, most succubi are not against feeding from women as well. Orgasms are the best way to drain the most life at one time.
Whip of Mental Pain - Exclusive to Lilith and her high powered elites, the Whip causes physical pain but leaves no mark upon the flesh of its victims. In the hands of a skilled user, it can be used to inflict yet give extreme amounts of pleasure mixed with agony.Ban:
While they are stronger than a normal human, Lilith and her minions are not nearly as tough as their bigger and more brutish brothers and sisters, and thus while concentrated fire is needed to take them down, it is not nearly as much as it would be for other demons.Typical Minions:
Elite Seducers - They are the top of the ladder in the hierarchy in Lilith's cadre. Few men or women have ever gone up against these beings and lived to tell the tale because they attack from shadows and quickly disarm and disrobe their prey before sending them to Hell in sweet mind blowing bliss. They also carry the trademark whip that can be used to beat down tougher prey into submission before they feed.
Incubus - For every demon, there is a flavor, and for every human, there is a pleasure they cannot go without. The same is true since these demons are female exclusive tormenters. They are stronger physically to their female counterparts, but their methods are far more savage and straight forward. They are the tanks in Lilith's cadre, and they know how to use their overwhelming strength to great effect in both tearing apart enemy lines and in fucking the brains out of any women they can get their hands and tentacles on.
Sisters/Brothers of Lust - Devoted followers to Lilith's cause, these humans have given up their alliances to any other god or goddess save hers for the chance to become as she and her powerful minions are. While mortal, they would give their lives for their goddess without a thought. Lilith keeps them more out of personal amusement than anything else, and to feed from in case captives are few and far between.Personality:
Lilith herself is the ultimate temptation made physically manifest, and she knows it well. She has no qualms whatsoever about who she has to screw over, (literally in most cases,) so long as it keeps her and her minions well sated and fed. Cross her however, and don't expect to be sent to the afterlife without enduring agony beyond imagining first since she is also quite the skilled torturer. Men and women both have begged her forgiveness in such a short time when she gets her claws in them for any length of time.Catchphrase:
"Come to me....you know you want to become lost within me. That's it....feed me....come into me and be sent to Hell in mind blowing ecstasy." Whispered into her prey's ear right before sending them over the edge for the last time.
