The basic story:

Though mostly unknown, there are a number of Accursed Bloods scattered around the world. These Accursed Bloods have found they possess the power to turn into a creature that best reflects their personality. Some may be 'normal' creatures like cats, birds, snakes, deer, horses and the like, while others are of mythical stature like dragons, harpies, unicorns, pegasi, and even demons. Some have been discovered and now every one of them is being hunted down. Finding each other, they band together to fight the onslaught. Each were creature has a human form, a morph form (halfway between human and animal), and a full animal form. In some cases they can even take on minor aspects of their creature either only as instinctual and uncontrollable (such as growing hair when it's cold or increasing their speed when in danger, etc.) or can control them for a limited amount of time (like growing claws or fangs on command but only every few hours or so, a couple times a day, etc.).

Current Character List
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Pairs/Matches:

<This is where couples will be listed and links to the deviating adult threads will be posted. I say they will be posted here because not everyone who decides to participate will be accepted, but so that the adult parts of the story/plot are still available for the people who are accepted, to read

Please, when creating a deviating thread, send me the link and the title. Also, please do NOT make it vital to read to understand what is going on in the main RP>
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Rules (sadly I think we need them):

1) Please adhere to the limited control OR instinctual ability option. You can only have one or the other and can only be at half the power of that ability in full beast form.

2) Think outside the box for creature! PLEASE. XP

3) You MUST BE REGULARLY ACTIVE! I'm kinda tired of this RP dying as early as it has been!

4) If you do not post regularly for ONE MONTH (30 days) without giving me an acceptable reason (that I MUST approve) why you can not I, SxyCowgirl, reserve the right to take control of your character and/or kill them off! (REASON FOR INABILITY TO POST REGULARLY ONLY an option FOR TEMPORARY HIATUS!)

5) If you choose not to be a part of this RP anymore, tell me IN THIS THREAD and I will take over your character and reserve the right to control them as I choose including killing them off.

6) DO NOT RP IN THIS THREAD AND DO NOT POST OOC IN THE RP THREAD! ALL OOC must be posted here!

7) You may have up to THREE (3) characters! No more than that.

8) Be respectful to everyone here in the OOC, and before doing something (attacking injuring, mind-controlling, etc.) to another person's character(s), ASK THEM FIRST! It's rude not to and it will NOT be tolerated!

9) PLEASE don't have your characters run off on their own for too long. A little bit of off to the side, doing their own thing is fine, but keep the MAIN STORY PLOT in mind. Your characters are being HUNTED!

10) If you have your character stays away from the group too long (longer than 24 hours in the RP) I, SxyCowgirl reserve the right to 'send an assassin beyond your character's fighting abilities' to force them back to the group. (If you're concerned about this rule and need more clarification, ASK!!!!!! I won't bite.)

11) Age limit: 1,500 years old. Rosa is an 'ancient dragon', has been living in a cave for most of her life and is this age due to hiding from humanity, honing her abilities and knows nothing else.

12) You may 'train' to enhance control of certain abilities: 50 years = decent control, 100 years = great control, 300 years = exceptional control, 500+ years = mastery. (Please keep in mind, the age limit is 1,500 years.)

13) Have fun with it! The only thing I ask is please try to stick to the story as much as possible!
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Other Important Information:

"Before posting where you're coming in, please discuss it here."
"Please read other people's profiles so we don't have more than one of the same exact animal and/or career/job."
"When changing between full human and full animal, clothes are lost. Accursed with animals larger than humans rip clothes as they grow, while smaller than humans have the clothes fall around them. There are no exceptions to these rules, though the morph form may keep some form of clothing."
"If you want to branch off into a 'pre-meeting-Rosa' PLEASE either MAKE A SEPARATE BRANCH THREAD and put the link to it in your profile, OR add it directly to your profile as I(SxyCowgirl) have done!"

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Readers:

<Here will be a list of people who don't want to participate in this RP, but still wish to follow it. If you would like your name to be added to this list, please PM me

As readers, you will be asked questions about the plot because I may be using this RP as a base for a story I am planning to add to the book I am writing.

Username: Pentagious666
Character Name: Valoren (Hitshio) Ravenmoore
Age: 300
Gender: male
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 165 lbs.
Accursed Creature: demon breed
Innate Abilities:
Demonic Prowess trained for 300 years
As a demonic breed it is inherent that he has a large bolstering to strength speed durability and dexterity.  These enhancements allow Valoren to be an exemplar of almost inhuman feats as well as an impressive regenerative rate.  In human form a few bullets won't kill him, half form it takes alot of blood loss, demonic state: decapitation is really the only means of death.
Contract no training required.
When a contractor issues a direct command they expend a year of their life to temprorarily double Valoren's capabilities.  This lasts about 5 minutes and Valoren must have a contractor to use this ability.
Occupation: Butler
Appearance:
Human state

Half State

Demonic State
Personality: Outwardly he is simply an extraordinary butler.  The very example of proper manners and well wrought respect.  Inwardly he holds his demonic secrets and knowing he is a shifter. He abhors his final form and refuses to take it unless his contractor is in more dire danger then he could ever hope to beat.
History: Hitshio is a demon though not for what he does now, but for what he did in a past life.  He was such a gruesome murderer that he was reincarnated and forced to live with demonic blood.  Passing through the veil caused him to forget his past life however and he now serves as a manservant.
Other:
Cursed, anyone that learns Valoren's true name, Hitshio, can command him contract free.

Username: SxyCowgirl
Character Name: Rosa Liluit (LIE-loo-it)
Age: 2,342 years old
Gender: Female
Height: 5' 4"

Weight: 113 lbs

Occupation: Thief/Mercenary/Assassin

Accursed Creature: Black Dragon

Innate Ability(ies): Limited control; 1) Wings - 3 hours/week (lasts up to 3 hours), 2) Teeth and eyes - 12 hours/week (lasts up to 60 seconds), 3) Understand Language - 15 hours/week (lasts up to 60 minutes) 4) *Trained 583 years* Storm Breath {can create a storm 50 feet vertically, up to 3 miles diameter) - 24 hours/week (lasts up to 8 hours)

Appearance: Like this,
Like this as a morph, and this in dragon form. Imagine the morph form like that but with long dark hair and the same colors as the larger dragon. (Borrowing these images until I can draw my character myself. :3)

Personality: Calm, cool and collected at times, hotheaded at others, stubborn, brutally honest, strong, romantic, and not easily trusting of others

History: Born and raised in Italy, Rosa learned at a young age of her powers. Not only did she learn of them, but so did many others. She was greatly feared and was hunted for many years, until a knight from France declared he had slain her, showing a pelt of colored scales, the same color as hers. Truly he had found a true dragon and had slain it and she had taken it's place in it's cave for many many years. Now she has learned from the other animals she shared the cave with, that other Accursed Bloods had been discovered. Leaving the cave in the middle of the night, she has flown in her full-form to New York, where the largest number of Accursed Bloods are said to have been discovered.

Other: Her powers become useless on nights of new moons, leaving her at her most vulnerable. In her 'normal'/human form, she can be faster than normal humans and stronger, but only for short periods of time.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Chapter 1:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Birds sang loud and clear as the sun rose slowly over the hills and valleys that lay far below the entrance to the cave. The sky painted yellow and orange grew ever lighter and the bird song ever clearer and more jubilant. It was Spring, and a long awaited one at that. It had been a hard long Winter and it was time for the world to awake and renew itself. Warm rays peeked through the branches, glinting off something blue within the cave.

Feeling the warm rays of sun upon her back, Rosa stirred, lifting her head to look out towards the entrance of the cave. It was still the beginning Spring and though the snow had long melted, the nights were still nicely chilled. Standing, her scales gleaming in the fiery light of the dawn, she shook herself and stretched her wings. She moved gracefully to the entrance of the cave, allowing the light of morning to engulf her and begin to warm her.

As she stood on the ledge, a fox in it's transitional coat trotted quickly up the slope towards her, a smile upon its face. She turned her head slowly to look at it and smiled.

"Hello Derna. It is good to see you again. How was the winter hunting?" Rosa asked, the fox meeting her on the ledge.

"Sparse, but livable. As usual." Derna said, sitting and curling her tail around her. "I bring news for you. I heard it from a little friend."

Rosa chuckled, closing her eyes, a deep rumbling laugh. "And by little friend, I can assume you mean a bird you ate or intended to eat."

"I can never get one past you can I?" The fox asked, chuckling as well a high barking he he he. "She said there has been events across the sea. Many people dying of unknown causes." She said, narrowing her eyes, a sly grin across her light red face.

Rosa frowned and considered Derna's words for a moment before responding. "And this is important?"

"Oh very much so. You see, there are birds who have seen the deaths." Again the fox paused, waiting for a reaction from the great blue dragon.

Getting a little impatient, Rosa glared at her. "If you have something to say, say it. Enough with the games." She half growled, her wings twitching in agitation.

Her smirk widening at the impatient reaction from Rosa, and waited for a few more moments before continuing. "They say it was a beast. Not human, not animal." Derna half whispered to Rosa, her sharp white teeth showing in her devious grin.

At that, Rosa's ears perked forward and she straightened up. Beast. Like me. There are others....like me?! She thought. "Where?" She blirted quickly and rather loudly, startling the fox into standing.

"In a city called New York. A place of high buildings and horrid smells." She said, wrinkling her nose. "At least that's what my breakf--I mean 'friend' told me."

Stepping closer to the edge of the cave, Rosa turned back and smiled at the fox. "Thank you Derna! Thank you!" She said, stepping to the edge of the cliff and preparing to leap.

"WAIT!" Derna yelled, running right up next to the dragon. "There is more. The killings are not random."

Rosa stopped and looked at the fox, puzzled. "What do you mean?"

"They were beasts as well. Or ones who knew of beasts." This time, the she-fox was frowning in concern. "If you go, please do be careful. I don't like it."

"Thank you Derna. I will be cautious. You have been so good to me over the years and I will ask you but one more thing, please take care of my cave until I return." Though she knew her request would be difficult for just the fox to handle, Derna knew many others who would be willing to come to her aid should she need it.

"I will go to this New York and I will warn the others like me of what you have said. Thank you." And with that, she spread her wings and leaped from the ledge, the wind catching her and propelling her forwards.

I must find the others like me! I will. I have always been alone, felt alone. It's time to find out what else is out there.

Username:Mist
Character Name:Jackson Taylor
Age: 103
Gender: Male
Height:6'1
Weight: 260
Accursed Creature: Stone Golem
Innate Abilities(s): Instinctual

Anger - Outer extremities, hands/feet, become solid stone.

Fear - Hardens skin.  Not to half morph levels but more of a hard clay.  Also cannot feel pain from this reaction, however any wounds inflicted still transfer to the skin or as deep as the wound goes.  When the effect wears off, all pain is suddenly felt.

Sadness - Uncontrollable shifts between Were being, Half-Morph, and human state.  His full morph actually shifts from just stone to a gem form, depending on the intensity of the emotion. eg. sapphire, ruby, diamond, emerald, etc.

Occupation: Mechanic/Mason

Appearance: In human form, a muscular build, completely bald, brown goatee, and blue eyes with very strong features like a "chiseled" jawline, thick neck and broad shoulders.

Half Morph form Looks like this.  In half morph form, he remains is human height and size, however with more weight.  Think flexible, thin shale skin.  Weight becomes approximately 400lbs.

In full form, just imagine longer arms.  The curious part of full form is the size change.  He becomes smaller to the tune of only 4 feet in height.  However, this smaller form, matched with the ape like proportions, give him a lot more range of motion and quicker movements than a large Stone Golem.  Things like planting his fists in front of him and swinging his body forward to attack and even simply move quickly from one place to another. Pretty much human level range of motion and speed.

Personality:  Loyal, friendly with an edge, not a loner but often quiet and to himself and his thoughts.  Makes attempts at comedy, but often misses completely as he has a difficult time picking up on subtle cues around him.

History: Born to a poor share cropper in the south eastern United States, cars and engines became his passion at a young age.  Manifesting shortly after puberty, his family hid him away and gave him little social skills.  They actually tried killing him numerous times to no avail.  They kept him locked in a root cellar and stopped feeding him shortly after realizing they couldn't kill him.  He got good at getting himself free by learning how to shift forms and taking what he needed to survive. 
In his mid teens he left home and never looked back.  Heading to the west, he found himself good company in the form of bootleggers.  Learning to control his emotions, he become handy with a wrench and learned quick behind the wheel.   Once he stopped aging around the age of 25, he found he was forced to move around alot.  He joined the army for WWII, a solid patriot.  He was a mechanic, of course. 
Into the 50's he continued west, moving about working in various shops and began studying more on geology. He spent a few years a on the west coast in the 60's and traveled throughout the country at the end of the decade into the next with hippies.  The late 70's took him to the Midwest, where he took up masonry.  He held a steady life bouncing around the states in the middle of the country up until the 90's when he had an incident in Wisconsin and headed back east.

Other: He can be controlled in real time, in Were form, by the one who has a ring he made of his own stone heart.  He made it for a woman he loved in the 60's and discovered the power by accident.  She died in a car crash about a year later.  She never knew and no other woman has ever had the ring since.

welcome aboard misty-boy, I am Pent the co-DM, would you like some NPC interaction?  I also need to talk to the lady rose and figure out what she wants to do with our golem shifter.

Offline SxyCowgirlTopic starter

I like this character. :) Well put together. I can't tell you how glad I am that someone else is being so unique with character concept. If it keeps up this way, I think this rp is going to be very interesting! Haha.

Anyway, welcome! As he has mentioned, Pentagious666 is indeed my co-DM in this RP. For people who aren't sure what that is, he's basically my right hand man in this RP and has very much the same privileges and responsibilities as myself. If you have questions that I may not be able to answer, he should be able to. :)

I will go post in the RP now. Lets see what happens next. XD

Offline Mist

I would love to take any and all types of action and interaction you throw my way.  Writing with a purpose is lots of fun and I think reactions are some of my best work. 

Thank you for the welcome and compliments on my character.  I hope that more people get involved and move this story along!

Offline Mist

I also want to make sure that I don't respond too quickly.  As there are clearly two of you in the room at the moment, I feel like I should give you both time to act/react before I make my next move.  As a bit of a new comer to the world of group role plays, is this the correct way to handle this? 

Offline SxyCowgirlTopic starter

In some instances it is the right thing to do. It's I think a matter of judgement. How I typically determine it is by how it would happen in a movie type setting. :)

yeah pretty much and me and the lady actually know each other, so when you get one you'll typically get both.
Edit: one side note, the flash of red is more a curiousity thing then hostility, you are allowed to drink your tea as you will, Valoren was thinking to himself that he should get an award for what he does.

Well, I kinda assumed as much, I just figured his perception would be a little different till the Mexican stand off ends and we are all fully aware of each other.

I'm sitting.  I assume we are sitting across from each other and he is standing perpendicular to us, at attention.

Okay. Just making sure. XD

We should probably wait for Pentagious666 now. Just in case he has something to interject with. :P

Edit: Also, I think I'm going to head to bed. See you tomorrow after my interview hopefully. :)

Agreed.  I'm about ready to turn in myself.  I'll be around soon.

No worries.  This last week was a bit hectic and draining but I will reply soon.  Just gotta get caught up on life a little before I sit down and put my mind that hard at work.

Sorry, I've been working two jobs for almost a month now so it completely skipped my mind to stop in here.  Sorry :(

I also feel like we're kinda hitting a stale mate in terms of numbers.  Whats the plan to keep going with just the three of us?  I guess I'm not sure where to go from here.   I feel like we are kinda waiting around hoping for someone else to join.
