Okay, here is my 2nd character. I have an NPC as well but I'm thinking we may not need him... Though players are welcome to move him about as needed or if in the future someone wants to make him a full PC they are welcome to do so.

Name: Johnathan “Jimmy” Owens

Age: 36

Appearance: 6'6”, 260 lbs, dark hair, dark eyes

Personality: Jimmy is a very by the books kind of guy who places a lot of stock in self control, personal responsibility, and duty. He is immensely protective of those who cannot protect themselves, loyal to the end, and is a true upstanding, moral citizen—the kind of guy who will tell you if you've given him too much change, or will turn in lost money. His temper is a formidable thing when lit and his wolf runs very close to the surface, but he possesses an easy smile and can be quite a nice guy when the situation calls for it.

Race and Powers: Werewolf, dominant

Important Position: He is new to being a werewolf so he holds no position. He possesses the potential to be an alpha in his own right, but likely it will be years before he even thinks of such a thing. Right now he just wants to learn control the wolf.

Background: The son of a Navy Captain and Police officer, Jimmy knew early on that he wanted to do his duty and help protect citizens in one manner or another. He spent his early years in Hawaii where his father was stationed. He was surrounded by lots of family there and he was taught how to be a man of worth early on. At age twelve, his father was transferred to Washington so their family moved, leaving behind the rest of his extended family members. He was given the duty of protecting his two sisters and his mother—even though she was a cop and perfectly capable of handling herself—whenever his father was on deployment. It was a responsibility he took very seriously.

Jimmy found himself in Oregon for college and decided to stay there after graduation to become a police officer in Portland. Unfortunately he was bitten by a wolf—he thought it was a dog bite—while on duty. He learned the truth of his predicament after the next full moon forced his change. After that incident he requested an unpaid leave of absence citing health issues as the reason. For two months now he has dealt with his secret without discovery, however, he knows he needs help. Figuring their must be others with this... affliction... he is now actively searching for them.

Wolf Form


NPC - Devon Harris

Sex/Age: Male/57

Race and Powers: Werewolf, submissive

Appearance: See pic

Devon was once a punk kid who ran “errands” for a for a slimy boss in exchange for protection and a few dollars here and there. One night he made the mistake of following the wrong man and ended up at the mercy of the previous Portland Alpha. Rather than kill him, the Alpha took pity on him and decided to offer the kid a chance to clean himself up and turn his life around. Tired of being in constant danger and doing dirty deeds for his boss, Devon accepted the offer gladly. In exchange for a roof over his head and hot meals he went to school everyday and ran pack errands after school, which were usually harmless tasks like picking up dry cleaning or shopping.

Gradually the Alpha revealed to him the secret of the pack and offered him the chance to make the change if he completed college. Devon was already considered part of the family and he could not see ever being without the Alpha and the pack around him. He again accepted the Alpha's conditions and shortly after his college graduation, he was turned. Now he happily accepts his role in the pack and wears the self-appointed title of 'Procurement Specialist' which means he is in charge of grocery shopping and like errands.

I'll make a second character in a few days. Don't have any just itching to be written so I'm going to take a bit of time and see how we're shaping up storywise and will fill in where it feels like we have gaps. :)

Looks like we could use a couple more vamps to balance things out a bit so that's what I'm going to make for my second character, hope y'all like her!



Name: Rosslyn

Age: 684 (appears 28ish)

Race: Vampire

Position: None, mostly solitary though she pays the respects due to the Leader of the Seethe

Personality: Rosslyn is quiet and thoughtful which leads many to think she simply has nothing to say or isn't intelligent enough to keep up with the conversation. It's a gross underestimation of her intellect. She is highly intelligent and the years have hones that intelligence to a razors edge. She's the sort of woman who could post a threat to the leadership of the Seethe if she were ambitious enough to want the position but since she doesn't she stays as far out of the political affairs of her "superiors" as possible, not wanting them to see her as an enemy to be done away with. When she chooses to give her friendship she is highly selective and extremely loyal, only outright betrayal will change her loyalties and then beware her wrath.

Background: Few know anything about where the brunette came from. All anyone is sure of is the that she has just the slightest hint of a Scottish burr when she grows agitated and there is no way to be sure if that's because that is where she was born, or if she simply spent a good deal of time there at some point and picked it up. Her past is just that to her, past, and so she doesn't speak of it. No one is even sure if "Rosslyn" is her true name, or simply one she has chosen to serve for a century or two. **It actually IS her name, but she's used others in the past as well so there's no real way to be certain without being bold enough to actually ask...and then she may lie.**

All that's known about her for certain is that she came to Portland about 50 years ago and seems content to live quietly here. Like most older vampires she's acquired enough actual wealth (along with a number of nearly priceless antiques) to live quite comfortably without having to worry about mundane things like a job. She does as she pleases and stays within the rules of the Seethe. Her sense of diplomacy and ability to keep her own counsel makes her a perfect choice to perform as liaison to the different groups in the city and she is, sometimes, called upon for just that purpose when more volatile personalities might exacerbate a situation.

NPC:  Araceli Marisol Pereira









Race: Human with splash of Fae blood.

Powers: She is an exceptional EMT-P because her fae blood lets her tell with a touch or sometimes with just a look what is -really- wrong with someone; poison, heart attack, blood clot … she knows without any fancy tests or machines. The downside is … she often only gets such knowledge if the person is about to die, and occasionally she will get such knowledge in a completely random and useless fashion.

Position: EMT-P, small time psychic, and owns small art gallery.

Sex/Age: Female, Divorced, 25

Appearance: She is average height, 5'6, a little skinny and usually smells of a tang of medicine, hint of wood oil, and sandalwood.
Languages: Native – Spanish, fully fluent in Italian and Levantine Arabic (Middle East, mostly from Lebanon, Syria, Palestine and Israel), Quecha (from Bolivia),  Navajo
Family: Twin sons, Gavyn and Owen, age 8, who alternate between mom and dad's house. Her roommate and Mother-in-law Jayden, and her cousin Nizhona Haloki Stormrider (played by Haloriel).


Character: Arcali is a person who deals with death by living each day to the fullest. She loves art, but has never mastered creating it, adores sensual music (particularly for strings, like the cello) and really, really good food. She lives happily with her former mother-in-law, seeing her sons every week and sometimes every day.
She works hard and plays enthusiastically, just as content attempting to make art as in selling it. She is a bit … determined, and so, despite some 20 years of no to moderate success, she still attends her weekly art class.
She plays the violin in a Latin style.

History: Arcalie grew up in Argentina, reveling in Latin dance, ancient art, languages. Due to her psychic gift, she decided at an early age to study medicine. She dabbled in massage and even did some eastern medicine, however she quickly discovered that in a clinical setting it was difficult to hide her gift. She ended up settling on EMT because everyone is much to busy saving lives to care if her diagnosis is the result of intuition or magic. She came to America to go to school, ended up dropping out of medical school to get married. She settled for twin sons and an AS degree and has never regretted it. She's helped out with the police department in a rather under-the-table way by being offer to 'guesses' as to what killed people that get them started in the right direction before the autopsies are back.



Long character
Arcali Pereira will tell you that she loves art and music because of her Argentinian roots and teases that she is bad at it because of her Egyptian ties.  She LOVES art ... of all kinds ... but can't paint a picture to save her life, and her clay sculptures always look like something from an Apocalypse scenario. Due to her love of art (and loosing the house in the divorce) Arcali owns a small art studio that both offers lessons and displays work for sale.

She lives in a small apartment behind and above her art studio. She has a 'dry room, a 'wet' room and a class room on the main level. Storage, a library, art supplies store and a kiln downstairs. Her mother-in-law works their full time, and is her room mate, much to her ex-husbands teasing dismay.

The divorce was unpleasant but not ugly, and they both get along politely enough. He is happily re-married to a kinder-garden teacher. He teaches high school.

The job that actually pays her bills is her work as an EMT-P, are commonly referred to as simply "paramedics", represents the highest level of EMT, and in general, the highest level of pre-hospital medical provider, though some areas utilize physicians as providers on air ambulances or as a ground provider. Paramedics perform a variety of medical procedures such as fluid resuscitation, pharmaceutical administration, obtaining IV access, cardiac monitoring (continuous and 12-lead), and other advanced procedures and assessments (with associated Applied Science degree).

Araceli is terrible at art and very good as an EMT because of her Fae blood. It inhibits her creativity, but also gives her a subtly terrifying ability to sometimes look at or touch someone and -know- what is wrong … and if they are going to die soon.

Name: Macha Mong Ruad (Goes by Macha or The Red Queen)

Age: Old enough that she's forgotten how old she is and likely there aren't many others around to remember.

Appearance: Standing a mere 5 foot 2 inches she is petite--though if one were to call her small or short to her face she might relieve them of the burden of living with such poor manners--with well proportioned curves that have lured and blinded many a fool through the ages. Her smooth pale skin is framed by deep red waves that fall down her back while silver-gray eyes perch above a slim nose and perfectly formed lips. Her style of dress has adapted with the times though she still retains a strong hint of Celtic roots in her accent and the tattoos that cover her arms, back and chest. There are rumors about that hint at witchcraft but she neither confirms nor denies this. During the best of times she is able to feign humanity well enough to pass, but at the worst of times she appears something entirely other.

Personality: Macha is wholly unpredictable. Her moods ebb and flow with a startling fluidity that makes her a wild card at any given moment, though those close to her have learned to pick up the very subtle cues in her posture and demeanor. Thankfully she has been in a mostly peaceful period as of late, with her 'episodes' being fewer and farther in between. There are times when she can be the sweetest of creatures, possessing a rather girlish giggle, and there are other times when she is so filled with rage that all in her path cringe and quickly flee. Her mind is sometimes a truly chaotic place, yet she walks the fine line between sanity and insanity so gracefully... at least she thinks so.

She possesses a keen intellect that is at times obscured by her overwhelming 'otherness' and occasional spaciness. She does not suffer fools and will quickly weed out the weak and useless. To those who mind their manners and serve her loyally she gives her protection and will keep them safe, for a powerful seethe is a credit to her is it not? She is very observant, and always aware of what goes on around her, no matter how distracted she may seem. She is both fascinated and repelled by humans and their ways and often enjoys playing with them to stave off boredom. She 'collects' unique beings and prefers to keep young pretty people in her menagerie.

Race and Powers: Vampire. Long in age, The Red Queen possesses an array of beneficial abilities that have aided her at one time or another, though no one being could provide you with a complete list—something she has made sure of.

She is blessed/cursed with the gift of sight, a remnant from her mortal life that has been twisted by her vampiric nature for sure. Past, present, future—she sees all though none are distinctive. Her gift is not easily controlled and does not come when called (at best she can stifle the visions for a while but she will pay for putting them off). Instead it may be triggered by certain events and almost always by blood and while in such a state she is rather dangerous to any near her.

She can withstand sunlight though for how long is unknown since she avoids it at all costs. She can fly though doesn't, possesses exceptional senses, moves faster than most vampires which has helped her stay alive more than once in her long years, and of course possess a particularly strong gift of glamour.

Important position: Queen of the Portland Vampire Seethe

Brief History: Macha Mong Ruad. Is she 'the' former High Queen of Ireland? Or perhaps something older? No one is sure, not even she. The past is the past and best left to lay in peace... although perhaps it is merely that she has forgotten more of the past than she can remember? One can't be sure. There are whispers a plenty though none to her face for fear of her wrath. Plenty have tried to usurp her and end her existence only to meet their own end. Her reputation is well known and both fear and grudging respect accompany it.

She lives comfortably in the modern age and has done much to see to the safety and well being of those she considers hers. While she does rule her seethe as a true Queen should, she does not place a strangle hold on them but instead allows them freedom to flourish or perish as they will—as long as none of the rules are broken. Her ultimate goal is unknown but for now she is content to build her power base and keep the vampires off the mortal radar. She plays nice with the Fae and the Wolves who share her city but if you asked her on a good day...or perhaps a bad one, Portland belongs to the vampires.

She is blessed/cursed with the gift of sight, a remnant from her mortal life that has been twisted by her vampiric nature for sure. Past, present, future—she sees all though none are distinctive. Her gift is not easily controlled and does not come when called (at best she can stifle the visions for a while but she will pay for putting them off). Instead it may be triggered by certain events and almost always by blood and while in such a state she is rather dangerous to any near her.

She can withstand sunlight though for how long is unknown since she avoids it at all costs. She can fly though doesn't, possesses exceptional senses, moves faster than most vampires which has helped her stay alive more than once in her long years, and of course possess a particularly strong gift of glamour.

Important position: Queen of the Portland Vampire Seethe

Brief History: Macha Mong Ruad. Is she 'the' former High Queen of Ireland? Or perhaps something older? No one is sure, not even she. The past is the past and best left to lay in peace... although perhaps it is merely that she has forgotten more of the past than she can remember? One can't be sure. There are whispers a plenty though none to her face for fear of her wrath. Plenty have tried to usurp her and end her existence only to meet their own end. Her reputation is well known and both fear and grudging respect accompany it.

She lives comfortably in the modern age and has done much to see to the safety and well being of those she considers hers. While she does rule her seethe as a true Queen should, she does not place a strangle hold on them but instead allows them freedom to flourish or perish as they will—as long as none of the rules are broken. Her ultimate goal is unknown but for now she is content to build her power base and keep the vampires off the mortal radar. She plays nice with the Fae and the Wolves who share her city but if you asked her on a good day...or perhaps a bad one, Portland belongs to the vampires.

Hehehehe Very nice  ;D

Hello all,
I'd be interested in joining this group if there is still room inside. I do not know much of the Mercedes Thompson universe, but all the things I've read in this thread and the resources mentioned have picked my curiosity greatly. Let me know if joining is still possible and if certain type of characters are needed.

Hey, Darling!

The group is still open for members so please don't hesitate on creating a character sheet and posting it here or sending it to me!

As for characters you can be whatever you want to be, though we would like to see more fae/walkers/vampires and werewolves are always fun to have, though with this race we are looking for submissives right now! ^.^

Hope to hear from you soon!

Thank you for your reply Hekate,
I am preparing a character sheet and will probably make a male vampire. I will post the CS soon and may take some liberty with his background. So do not hesitate in telling me if I cross boundaries.

Name: The Hand, Gabriel de Nevers

Age: Born during the night of the Saint Barthelemew in France, 1572, which makes him 438 years old.

Appearance:

Gabriel is 6 foot tall, well built with short blond hair and brown eyes turning fully black (iris included) when Gabriel releases his beast. His skin is quite pale, and blue veins may become visible when he has not fed for a certain period of time. He wears a dark short leather jacket, a black shirt, black jeans, but can also be seen in designer suits. He has no problem showing nudity.
The tattoo of a handprint is present on his left shoulderblade. The significance of this artwork is directly related to his role into the Washington State Vampire Seethe.

Personality: Gabriel is a man who rarely loses his calm. he is observant and able to decipher from a general attitude, the state of mind of an individual.
He has gone, during his life as a more-than-mortal, through ages of war, and felicity all the same. His experience speaks for himself in period of trouble, as he participated to the early Europeans wars, the World Wars before joining the West and finding shelter next to the Vampire Lord reigning over the Washington State Vampire Seethe.
He served his Lord for decades and has been one of his most faithful follower until recently. Due to an intense disagreement with his Lord, Gabriel chose to leave the Washington State Vampire territory and avoid a certain death. He is rather secretive concerning this last episode of his life and will rarely speak about it.
He is a master tactician and learned the arcane of politics, intrigue and lies within royal European courts.

Gabriel is an accomplished soldier, able to use many types of guns or rifles. The weapon he uses with the most talent and with which he is the most impressive is the one-handed sword.
The calm and control Gabriel shows makes of him a very dangerous being, capable of killing without remorse using a direct or indirect method. His entourage always feared the day he would lose his temper, which seemed to have happen the day he chose to leave his Seethe.

Race and Powers: Vampire.

Ancient, Gabriel has several powers he can display.
He can disappear and reappear at reasonable distance. This type of movement corresponds in fact to "flash-steps", a movement that is so fast that it seems -to the human eye- that Gabriel's silhouette fades away only to reappear somewhere else.

Gabriel can read into the mind of his victims when he feeds over them.

Gabriel can track his prey after two blood exchanges.

Gabriel is able to charm, exert a strong fascination due to his old lineage.

Important position: None in particular

Brief History:
Saint Barthelemew's night, 1572, Paris, France.
Even today, people living in Europe are shivering when this date is mentioned. A collective memory maybe ? The ancient sensation of fear, the smell of blood and the vision of the streets of an immense city flooded by blood and dead bodies laying everywhere. The reasons why so many killings happened at that time are still multiple and a mystery. Catholics slaughtered Protestants for Power.. this was probably the starting point of these events.. however, afterwards, the killings got out of control and innocent people were hunted down without distinction for their religion.
This was when Gabriel was turned. An innocent person, at the wrong place, at the wrong time.
In reality, the group of Vampire who sired him was at the origin of these terrible nights.
First they intrigued in the darkness to make Catholics believe they were going to be attacked by Protestants, before spreading the murders to the rest of the Capital. In the end, while Protestant were unprepared, they were murdered, and the Vampires had initiated a war of religion where both camps would slaughter each others. During that time, the Vampires would feed as they pleased and turn eventually the ones they were most fond of.

After he was turned, Gabriel stayed on his own for ages. He lived in hiding as a solitary Vampire. To survive, he chose to go into lands where wars were common fact. Thus, he visited several part of Europes and knows different languages from French to German or Slavonic. He acquired a solid experience in battle and was able to reveal his beast and satiate his thirst without being noticed.
Eventually he left for the "New World" after the end of World War II, and joined the Vampire Seethe in Washington State. He acquired an important status and reputation there, becoming one of the Hands of the Vampire Lord, ie the one he would call onto to solve critical situations.

That is until he was assigned with a task that didn't go as expected and after a furious discussion with his Lord, he decided to leave his Seethe and Washington State.

At this period of his life, he only wants to find some peace. He holds no grudge against Human, Faes or wolves, and even though he doesn't like them, he doesn't give a damn about Walkers.
