Is any possible character allowed in this?
so long as they are a fictional character in a TV show or movie, yes.

Interesting, so this would not be limited to say your average hero or villain types?

Not at all. You could play Frankie Heck from The Middle if you wished to, just to give an example.

Interesting. :)

My only concern with such a wide scope is the plot. How would you make that work?

it's a sandbox. I'm in plot discussions with several people not native to Martin Riggs' 1989 world. Which is alright because he's in Gotham and not aware he shouldn't be there.

Room for a Romanian stripper who thinks she's working as a CIA operative? :P

Who would you be referring to? As we only accept cannons.

It's a rather recent character from a movie.

Sorina from "Pain & Gain".

    Hi, I'm trying to decide about this so I wanted to ask a couple things.
    Since this is after/outside of the movie or show, do the people die in the Fandomverse? Captain Jack Harkness sort of becomes ordinary if no one dies. But everyone there is fictional and could be in another movie or season so how could they die?
    Do the superheroes (and supervillains) still have their powers?
    I had a couple other questions but they got answered.

I'm pretty sure people can die (unless Aysande says differently) or else our Sherlock Holmes and Dr. House might not be that handy.

Yes, heroes/villains get to keep their powers. As well as magic wielders and so on.

Yes, people can die, but I or Ember should be asked before a character is killed. If someone needs to die in order for your character to exist, they would die in the movie/TV show but reappear living with all their powers in Fandomverse. I have Rain from the first Resident Evil movie reappear in the train of Raccoon city, not zombified, for example.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately my first choice got taken and I have so very many in second place - lol.
    Captain Jack Harkness (Torchwood), Captain John Hart (Torchwood), Magneto, Patrick Jane (The Mentalist - just so we could have all the Sherlock Holmes based characters), Spike (Buffy), Dexter, or Alice (Resident Evil - even though I almost never play females & have never done so in a sexual RP)
    Yes, I realize Dexter could be problematical - lol.

Killing "Extras" is a staple of Martin Riggs stories too!

Part of my uncertainty is that I'm never sure I have gotten the personality right. If I'm going to play a canon character, I want to do it right.

The best way to know is to give it a shot. I know it's unnerving a little, but no one will go canon-nazi on you unless you turn a villain in a good puppy-loving character ;)

Truer words never spoken! It's always unnerving at first, picking up a canon character for the first time, but we're all really kind and supporting people! I agree that no one will canon-nazi jump you!

idk, I like the "Direct quotes taken out of context and applied to a different situation" method. Basically think how they've said something in the past and phrase it that way.

Well, Mystique is about, I play her. She would not be a good friend to Magneto, as from what I understand he kinda abandonned her, and Rain would love to have Alice around to kick some Zombie ass. ;)

    I hadn't considered the aspect of Rain being around. Which will make playing Alice a little more difficult for me since Alice is cool with her but I was annoyed by the character. Then again maybe it was less annoyance at her and more about the fact that they didn't shoot her when they should have.
    As for Magneto and Mystique (at least in the movies) he wanted her around when she was herself - just not when she had devolved into a human.      "I'm glad to see that you're back to yourself, my dear."
