Don't feel like you have to pigeon-hole the character into a specific slot. The suggestions in the intro aren't the only positions available. Make your character and we'll see how she fits into things.

All right then  ^^  I'll just see where my muse goes

Name: Lauren Walters
Age: 27
Sex: Female
Race: Chimera
Type: Manticore
Origin: Several sources, but primarily Pathfinder, a Monster Girl Encyclopedia entry, and a few video games
Notable Abilities/Skills:
  • Heightened Senses - Manticores have enhanced eyesight, hearing, and smelling capabilities.  They are capable of seeing in pitch black darkness as well.
  • Flight - A manticore's wings aren't just for show, and are fairly durable. 
  • Venomous Tail/Razor Claws - Manticores have quite sharp spikes on the end of their tail, which are fully capable of being launched with surprising accuracy and penetration capabilities at a range of 60 yards.  Anything past that gets more difficult to hit, but still doable up to 120 yards.  These spikes can be used in melee combat as well, and are also poisonous, containing a potent paralytic neurotoxin.  Lastly, the spikes can retract if the manticore wills it, usually for its alternate purpose.  (see images in appearance and O/O's below for explanations)  Manticores also have razor sharp claws for things and people that get in their face without being invited.
  • Heightened Strength and Endurance - Manticores are incredibly strong, and are also quite tough and durable.  It is no easy feat to bring one down.
  • Shapeshifting - Much like lycans can, manticores can change their form at will.  It is no difficulty to switch between human and hybrid forms, though a full human manticore loses its wings, tail, claws, and ears until it returns to its true shape.  (when in human form, loses enhanced hearing portion of Heightened Senses, Flight, and Venomous Tail/Razor Claws, but keeps the sight and smell enhancements and the Heightened Strength and Endurance.)  She prefers her manticore form whenever possible, unless she's just in a mood to blow things up.
  • Brawler - Manticores don't usually have a lot of skill with manufactured weapons, but they don't really and truly need it in most circumstances.  They're dangerously good at using what gifts they already have, and even in human form they're able to easily break some bones in a fight due to their brute force.
Notable Equipment: Just because most manticores don't take the time to learn manufactured human weapons doesn't mean that Lauren didn't.  She can see the wisdom in having the knowledge of how to use such weapons if either the situation properly calls for it or her true form isn't available for use, due to one reason or another.  That, plus she likes seeing things go boom.  All weapons are made with her human form in mind, as if she's in manticore form she will opt to use her natural killer instincts and capabilities instead.
  • Twin Beretta 9mm guns
  • Customized Dragunov Sniper Rifle
  • RPG Launcher (for when the mission calls for heavy duty weaponry....or in case Lauren decides something just needs to explode)
  • Varying amounts of C4 or other explosives (brought along and used as needed or desired)
Role: Weapons Specialist
Recruitment Status: Recruited
Employment History: Lauren was found and recruited not long after bringing down a group of thugs on her own in the process of protecting a client.  No one involved was quite able to understand how she had survived six bullets to the torso, but the company found her through the resulting media coverage on the miracle woman.  Once it was clear that she was a manticore, it became more obvious that it would take more than six bullets to bring her down for good.
Appearance:
Manticore Appearances
These aren't so real life as the portrait images I will be using, but they give some ideas as to how the manticore form looks.  First one is how she looks herself (more or less), while the others are for demonstration purposes concerning the O/O's. (see below)  Additionally, she had six bullet scars in her chest and stomach, along with a few other combat based injuries here and there.





Sexuality: Straight, preferably looking for romance as opposed to casual sex.  Or if nothing else, at least an acceptable life partner
On/Off: My O/Os.  In addition, female manticores do tend to enjoy using their tail on men, which can open up (see extra pictures above) and close around exposed erections (also see above) so as to pleasure their partner in a bit of a different manner than they might be used to.  A manticore's body will adapt to their partner's size and shape, with the adjustment being quicker the more often such a coupling occurs.  Eventually, once the manticore's body fully adapts to match their partner's body, vaginal sex will be beyond mind blowingly amazing.  After having sex in such a manner, the manticore will view herself as mated for life with that partner.  Vaginal sex prior to the manticore's body being fully adapted is highly unlikely, and it's extremely unwise to try and force oneself on a manticore. 
Personality: Lauren is a bit of a firecracker with a short fuse, with two possibilities of what might happen if she's mad at you.  Either she'll throw envenomed words at you and storm off without fully realizing what she said until later, or you'll be seeing stars with little to no warning beforehand.  It all just depends on whether she likes you or not.  She's rather snarky and occasionally sarcastic as well, but overall isn't a bad person.  She just doesn't have a lot of impulse control when it comes to anger.  Making things explode tends to help her feel better, as does classic rock music.  Even better, exploding things while such music is playing.  Deep down she does have a bit of a soft spot for romantic things, but it's not something she openly advertises.
Background: Lauren was a bit of an odd manticore, even from childhood.  Her fascination with the human race led her to spend just as much time with them as her own kind.  She wound up learning the best of both worlds, and found that she not only had a knack for science, but thoroughly enjoyed it...especially chemistry.  Explosions and fire were things that fascinated her, and she began working towards learning as much about those as she could.  She eventually wound up working as a surprisingly adept bouncer for a high end club, though she quickly went into the private bodyguard business.

She got to learn about all sorts of human weaponry from this point, which was exciting for her.  She quickly became one of the most versatile manticores in the world, simply because she knew not only how to use her own race's strengths, but she learned some human ingenuity on top of it.  She took to the weapons training like a fish takes to water, and was shown to be unusually good with human weaponry for a manticore.  The best part of it, in her mind, was it allowed her to occasionally kick ass without revealing her real form to the human world.  The training wound up serving her well, as apparently she became relatively successful at her work.

Of course, her job took a bit of a turnaround after the incident with thugs attacking her employer.  She managed to keep him alive, but circumstances weren't so favorable and she wound up getting more hurt than normal.  It was hardly enough to kill one of her kind, but it had been injuries that a human was quite unlikely to survive.  It wasn't long after she got out of the hospital, leaving several medical field workers puzzled, that she was approached by an organization for people like her...a place where she could perhaps be herself just as often as she used the things she learned for use in the human world.  She jumped at the opportunity, longing to be able to stretch her wings a bit more often than she had been able to thus far.
Merits:
  • Weapon Proficiency - If it fires a bullet, causes explosions, or creates fire, Lauren probably knows how to use it.  Just don't ask her to disarm a bomb, she's more likely to detonate it from a distance than keep it from exploding.
  • Loyal - Anyone who's earned her trust will have Lauren completely on their side.  And she is a force to be reckoned with, indeed...but also importantly, she'll actually listen to you.
  • Toxin Resistant - Lauren has a high resistance to toxic substances, from straight up poison to alcohol.  She isn't completely immune to such substances entirely, save for the case of her own venom.  This applies to medications as well, and can be a drawback if she needs things like painkillers.
Shortcomings:
  • Mind of her Own - Unless it's someone who's earned her respect, Lauren doesn't do well with taking orders from other people.  Being paid to listen can typically help convince her to listen, if grudgingly.
  • Seeing Red - Lauren tends to go kinda sorta crazy if she gets frustrated and/or angry enough.  She won't have any patience in such instances, opting to take the 'shoot first and ask questions later' method, or else using her real form's destructive capabilities if applicable.  Expect nasty words and phrases to be flung around as well.
  • Prideful - One of the fastest ways to get on Lauren's bad side is to step on her ego.  Insult her at your own risk!
Hobbies: Making things explode or catch on fire, karaoke, most any physical activities (but especially ones that involve fighting), going to theaters (movie or performance), reading (especially action and/or romance novels), 70's and 80's music

Thera Acheron - Mothman WIP
Name: Thera Acheron
Age: 413
Sex: Female, when appearing human
Race: Cryptid
Type: Mothman
Origin: Mothman, specifically influenced by the movie (The Mothman Prophecies) and some general monster talk I've picked up along the way, but with my own flair.
Notable Abilities/Skills:
  • Telepathy/Pre-cog: Telepathic ability usable on humans (possibly more human type monsters as well), mainly through a more direct link, after touching them, while able to see them, or if they are thinking about her. This ability allows her to gather information with no communication barriers due to language or whatever obstruction, however extended connection does tend to drive humans insane. Telepathic ability is exceptionally strong with members of her own species, allowing them to tap into an almost group consciousness, though it requires her to be in a semi-meditative state (not in battle). I know the pre-cog is a slippery slope, but it would be more only events of very large proportion and/or high death count (in keeping with what's become common lore about these things, I leave it to the GM's discretion).
  • Wings: Cannot be retracted into the body, only folded close to the body and are hidden under layers of long, loose fitting clothing. (Coats, scarves, veils, etc...) Mothman wings are quite strong, and almost tireless.
  • Minor shapeshifting: Can change herself to be more human looking though not quite perfectly; it is uncomfortable and she still requires the veils, both out of personal preference and to disguise the minor flaws in her human appearance. She can simply be as she is naturally or her human shape, which cannot change, though it is slowly getting more life like the more often she uses it. (The time range on this is so slow it's not really going to be noticeable in the story.)
Notable Equipment: Thera has collected her share of junk over the years, rather like a magpie.
  • Colt 1911: Thera picked this off a fallen soldier after the Battle of Amiens, mostly because it is pretty and has an interesting texture. While a she is a decent but unremarkable shot and is not likely to utilize it as a weapon. Eye Candy
Role: Open, but leaning toward intel gathering (interrogation?) or something of that nature.
Recruitment Status: Recruited
Employment History: She has traveled the world and become rather gluttonous as the world seemed to only be getting more and more rife with death energy. Despite being to young to have her kenning, she is extremely active. Thera's presence at a string of places the Company had taken interest in brought her to their attention. Of course as they were noticing her, she was also noticing them. They danced around each other until she became intrigued enough to actually meet. Seeing as she would be doing basically the same thing anyway, she agreed to join the company. While the concept of employment and money are strange to her, she has grown to enjoy accumulating the things that money can buy.

Appearance: Tall, six feet, with grey skin, light dusting of dark grey/black fur and deep red eyes. Head is wide, the eyes are large, wide set and very reflective, with wings. Not quite bird like, bat like, or even moth like; the wings are not quite anything seen in nature and span close to twenty feet when fully spread. (If you're familiar with the traditional mothman imagery, I'm going for a more humanized version. Reference) When appearing human she has pale skin with a slight ashen/grey undertone, dark grey hair and red eyes, her features are passable but ever so slightly off (eyes slightly too big, etc...), but the veil helps disguise this. People assume her strange manner of dress and behavior is due to her being eccentric.
Sexuality: Asexual
On/Off: O_O
Personality: Observant and withdrawn (but not at all cold), somewhat disconnected from events happening around her, which is not to say she doesn't take interest in them. On the contrary she is an avid spectator and is keenly interested in the world around her. Her emotions seem to be pale, washed out echoes or mimicry of what she has observed. She is almost always calm, slightly amused, with a tendency to find a strange beauty in almost any situation. She isn't a loner, but people do tend to give her space due to her tendency to talk to herself and overall "vibe". To most she comes across as harmlessly eccentric, but not amusing enough to hand around.

Background: Thera is fairly average for a mothman, though more "hands on" by their standards. She finds beauty in the commensal symbiotic relationship her species shares with humans, and in the great array and depth of suffering humans are capable of, viewing them more as a beautiful garden than as cattle. Unseen she has watched over the last 400 years, walking among people but always separate from them. She has seen wars, epidemics, massacres, and it never ceases to astound her that humans are inevitably their own greatest enemy. Despite her active nature she has managed to not get into too much trouble over the years. Maybe a tabloid printed a picture of her, once, but that was a long time ago and humans think all mothmen look alike.

General Mothman Stuffs
Mothman is the common name for a cryptid species that is older than humanity. They are quite adept at remaining outside of notice and preternaturally gifted. Even though they spend quite a bit of time rubbing shoulders with humanity they only tend to be noticed when it is time for them to reproduce as they become much more active. (Going to resist making moths to a flame comparison. ;) ) Feeding off the large amounts of energy released in tragic events that cause many deaths, the creatures are drawn to but never go out of their way to cause these events. Day to day they can live off very small amounts of energy but as it grows closer to time for them to ken their single egg (500-700 years old) they begin to become more noticeable/aggressive in their pursuit of this energy. Once enough energy has been gathered for the egg, the creature returns to the nesting area, claws the egg from its chest and then leaves again. The eggs hatch on their own, faster or slower depending on how much energy it has to feed on.

Merits:
  • Observant: Not much escapes her very large eyes, or any of her senses really.
  • Manipulative: Used to influencing things from afar to observe the results Thera has become quite adept at manipulating situations over the years.
  • Presence: Despite her height, when in her human form she comes across rather safe and docile, conversely in monster form most humans consider her frightening and oppressive in presence.
  • Steady as she goes: Thera has never been seen to lose her temper, ever. She is very even and unbiased, making her great in situations where others lose their heads.
  • The only way to be sure: Mothmen are notoriously hard to kill, at least by average human standards. While more likely to make a quick disappearance, they are quite durable.
Shortcomings:
  • Distractable: Love of observing things, can cause Thera to lose her train of thought, becoming engrossed in random things.
  • Priorities or lack there of: Thera doesn't really see things in terms of failure/success, events will still be taking place and as long as she is able to observe them she doesn't see what the problem is.
  • Spectator: Thera is a manipulator not a fighter, which is not to say she isn't capable, but she is most likely to sit things out or assist from the side lines unless it starts to look really dicey.
  • Light Weight Champ: Even though strong, Thera is quite light for her size and simply doesn't have the mass to soak up heavy blows. Normal humans wouldn't be a problem but, getting hit by a car or a super strong monster would send her flying.
  • Manipulative: Its a bad habit and it doesn't turn off, even when it should.

Hobbies: Observing things, comparing things, tactile exploration (she likes to touch things, don't be surprised if she is rubbing her face against a pillow or touching your shirt).

    Name: Kamal El Hashel
    Age: 230 - born 8 november 1783
    Sex: Male
    Race: Youkai
    Type: Kamaitachi
    Origin: Oriental Mythology
    Notable Abilities/Skills:
    • Slice and dice: Kamaitachi are famous for being creatures that can easily cut through almost anything. The original legend saw them cutting the legs of their opponents, slicing their opponents skin off their bodies and healing them back before they could even realize something happened to them. The members of this type of youkai group canfreely extend their nails up to forty centimeters using them as blades. The aforementioned blades are extremely durable and sharp, so they can cut through basically anything, even the hardest steel can be cut down really fast.
    • Inconspicuous presence: kamaitachi are essentially made of air, as such they do almost no noise when they move and tend not to be noticed even when they are in plain view.. unless they want to of course. This makes them exceptional assassins and infiltrators.
    • Heightened speed: Have you ever tried to hit the wind? That's similar to hitting a kamaitachi; their bodies are very fast, agile and gifted with extremely fast reflexes to cope with their superhuman speed. This allows them to even stop bullets with their blades if needed, to reach faraway enemies in a matter of seconds and to react crazily fast to threats.

    Notable Equipment:
    • 1x Sig Sauer P226 - with silencer
    • 1x AK47
    • 2x wakizashi (approx 40cm blade)
    • Kamaitachi ointment: This is a particular ointment that can heal any (even fatal) wounds instantly. Kamal has enough to fully heal someone once. More could be crafted if enough of the expensive materials that are part of it are given him. The exact recipe is a secret of the kamaitachi tribe.
    Role: Weapon/Fight expert but can easily act up as assassin/stealth operator.
    Recruitment Status: Yet to be recruited.
    Employment History: While not yet recruited Kamal is pretty (in)famous in the warring/assassin world. During his life he took part in most wars and, after the last big conflict, he switched to the role of a justicer. He basically goes and stealthily eliminates whomever he marks as <evil>.
    Appearance: A big scar runs on his back from his right shoulder all the way to his leg. If asked about it he will simply ignore the question.
    Sexuality: Heterosexual - he is looking for long term relationship but he is not doing so actively. A kamaitachi committing to someone can only be for life.
    On/Off: O/Os
    Personality: Kamal is usually cold headed. He likes to plan in advance and move when there are enough data to minimize risk and losses. He has seen an above average amounts of deaths around him and seems always a bit sad. The kamaitachi is also quite hard headed, if he has decided on something making him change his ideas is gonna be a huge task. He is pretty open minded and enjoys discovering new things. On average he doesn't trust other people easily and prefers to act alone rather than to risk a mess for someone else poor performance, yet he is the first one to run and help if something like that happens (he doesn't want to lose any more companions).
    Background: Kamal was born in the ottoman Empire the 8th November 1783. Young kamaitachis usually travel and work in group of threes. With his brother and sister he was involved in the Serbian uprising, the kamaitachi girl lost her life during the conflict while the brother disappeared without leaving behind any trace. Left alone grieving for his loss Kamal started training in all sort of martial arts and weapon usage. While he traveled the world he also took part in many conflicts. In all of those he distinguished himself as an above average killer.
    His most prominent achievements were obtained during world war I, II and Vietnam war. During the first war he was pretty much just shooting and learning how to use firearms properly, his self training up to that point consisted mostly of melee weapons and hand to hand combat. While his shooting ability was yet to bloom his group was the only one that survived throughout all the war without any major injury, almost like if they knew where and when projectiles would come.
    At the beginning of the second world war he was residing in the USA, he enlisted for the army immediately as soon as the war began. He was on the first wave that landed on the shores during the D-day. Many people fell all around him, yet he managed to be the first to reach the nazi outpost, he was the first to get in, the first to kill quickly and mercilessly any enemy that was so unlucky to cross his path. Many didn't even notice him and simply declared "They were falling down all around like being reaped by the wind".
    Kamal's biggest challenge was the Vietnam's war. As a soldier there he was tasked to eliminate any kind of resistance that were to approach the field base of his group. After some time he was at work, Vietcong started to avoid the part of the forest where he resided affirming evil spirits of death would cut your skin away if you dared to go near. Once again his group came out almost unscathed from the battle.
    Returned home from the turmoil he settled down and took over the facade of a businessman with a apparently normal life style. The truth is that he works as an assassin for hire, strictly selecting his victims from the requests he receives. Only <bad> guys meet their doom through his hands. He abides a strict code of protecting innocents and eliminating criminals.

    Merits:
    • Martial arts expert: Kamal is well versed in Karate, Jujitsu, Command Sambo, Kung Fu, Muai Thai and a bunch of other martial arts. He is a Master on all of these, combined with his reflexes and speed this makes him an awesome hand to hand/melee weapons  killing machine.
    • Weapon expert: While he fought in the various wars during his life he took up the skills needed to handle most firearms. He is not excessively well verse with explosives and bombs in general, just a rough idea on how they work.
    • Strategist: The experience the kamaitachi gained on the battlefields all around the world grant him a pretty good insight on tactics, way of combat, how to best use terrains and any kind of advantages that can come out to gain the edge in a battle.
    Shortcomings:
    • Hard Headed: if he has decided something must/must not be done in a certain way it will be hell to make him change his mind. His insight is usually right (thanks to his big chunk off real fighting experience), yet if he is not it will require quite a big push to move him from his official position.
    • Claustrophobic: Kamaitachi in general are being originated from the wind, they feel more at ease in wide open spaces than in secluded locations. This doesn't mean he can't stay in a room just that he feels way better outside. If the seclusion is in a very small place he would get uncomfortable and angry really quick possibly going completely out of control.
    • Risk Taker: While being a cautious planner once he has decided on a set of actions that would bring minimal losses he will throw himself in the middle of it, taking up always the most dangerous role in order to grant others the best chances of survival. This means he often dares a bit more than what he should and tends to end up wounded. Secretly he probably likes the thrill risking gives him.
    Hobbies: Martial arts (he is kinda of a freak in terms of his own training regimen), listening to music (mostly metal and rock) and playing it (he can play a guitar) and reading (mostly adventure and fantasy books). Lately he also took up gaming and is quickly running through most videogames for PC or consoles.

    Hello Roen, Caela and other applicants,

    I have been on E for more than a year now and in that time have tried 3 – 4 group games that never made it much past the opening. This one has a lot of interest for me, and I would like to apply (consider this a placeholder) but have concerns. If I dedicate the time and energy to the creation process, will there be a future for that persona? Any reassurance you can give would help here.

    I looked at the line-up of applicants so far and came up with this:

    • M Wind Assassin
    • M Changling
    • M Spirit (Yokai) Half-Kitsune
    • M Human (possessed) death-spirit
    • M Immortal Human
    • F Chimera Manticore
    • F Human secretary
    • F Mothman

    So Male heavy for Player v Player interactions.  Can you say anything about NPC’s? Besides the Company, who will we interact with IG?

    My initial thought is for a chameleon – Invisible man type of monster, but I shall wait to hear from you first.  Thanks!

    I'm looking at making a female Mimic OR a female basilisk. I'm really quite torn on the type I want to go with, since they're both so distinctly different from each other. A mimic would be huge fun just becuase she'd be able to imitate anyone... male or female... but a basilisk would be totally badass. Both have equal opportunities attached to them for a fun recruitment job for others, though would present distinctly different challenges. Hrmmm...

    Just remember though that one of those male characters is homosexual, another two are bisexual (preferring women) and one is pansexual.

    All in all only one of the current male characters is fully heterosexual.

    Okay, so I'm just going to list two merits and two shortcomings as I never got an answer but want to finish the char sheet so I'm all in :) I'll try and make the shortcomings something that'll knock my power into touch as roleplay issues and I do believe my sheet will be done :)

    So Male heavy for Player v Player interactions.  Can you say anything about NPC’s? Besides the Company, who will we interact with IG?
    My initial thought is for a chameleon – Invisible man type of monster, but I shall wait to hear from you first.  Thanks!
    Well, as Caehlim said, plenty of various sexual orientation to balance the scales of this "sausage party".
    Besides that, each mission might include NPCs available for interactions, and Caela still hasn't rejected the idea of creating additional GM NPCs of her own. Whatever lacking, we will be providing.

    That said, the recruitment is still very much open, and the approval process hasn't fully commenced yet, so I wouldn't take that lineup as a sure thing.

    It is extremely fun, reading up on everybody's ideas, and I'd let you know that we will start approaching you about your characters during the coming weekend. Your patience is appreciated.

    Keep in mind that if your characters are marked "Yet to be recruited", it might take some time before they get into the thick of things. We'd also be contacting you to discuss the recruitment plots. The plots are ours to conceive, but it would help if you'd have some ideas of your own, about where your characters are when we get to them and what obstacles might stand in the way of the recruitment.

    Wander, we'll see your list of shortcomings and merits, and if need be- we'll discuss it in PM.

    The goal is to have this thing up and running on the 31st of October. Though it is slowly turning into a beast of a game... So very appropriate!

    Well, I'm still working out the details on mine. The background is the tricky part.

    Name: Latet (LAY-teht), Latet the Lewd
    Age: 22
    Sex: Male
    Phylum: Chordata
    Order:  Squamata
    Family: Chamaeleonidae
    Type: Biped Humanoid-Chameleon crossbreed
    Origin: This is a take-off on The Invisible Man, a 1933 film by H.G. Wells.
    Notable Abilities/Skills:
    • Blend: All of his species (are there others?) are able to perfectly blend into any surrounding at will. It takes a full minute to do so, but once complete they can easily and instantly shift as they move as long as they are not running.
    • Regeneration: When injured, Latet heals many times faster than Humans do and can even grow back amputated extremities.
    Notable Equipment: None. Latet uses his own body for both protection and attacking if needed. 

    Role: Latet is a master of subterfuge and stealth. His skills are best used for covert operations be it espionage or assignation.

    Recruitment Status: Recruited – Perhaps a couple years ago?

    Employment History: Before the Company found him – there was irony for you – Latet had been strictly independent. He had some peculiarities that were best done alone and that was how he liked to work. He would find an odd job here or there for mostly large corporations who wanted information or to eliminate the competition and were not picky how that happened.

    Appearance: Mostly Humanoid in form in that Latet has one head, two arms and two legs. He also (as most Lizards do) has a tail that is about 5’ long. Latet himself is just over 6’ tall and when choosing to be opaque has a light green tone. His eyes are bright red and the last thing to disappear when he ‘blends’. Latet also has a long, forked lizard-like tongue and his claws (hands and feet) are retractable, much like a feline.

    Sexuality: Heterosexual and Dominant. Chordata do not mate for life but are severely jealous of whoever they are mated with at the time.

    On/Off: Link Here

    Personality: Strong and fearless with an ego to match. Latent is highly confident and that can – and has – put him in over his head at times. He would never refuse a job and always thought he could complete every single one. Failure was never an option, but it was a fact and not a few times he was unsuccessful. How he thought of himself did not always match reality and sooner or later that would likely be his demise.

    Background: Latet was born in the barest sense of the word inside a laboratory and named EX2007. He was the first fully successful hybrid of Human-Reptile DNA binding. While he was never told as much, he always believed that it was a governments doing to create a soldier for war. That was fine with him, and he hoped they succeeded. Once there was enough of his kind, they would take over these stupid humans. Perhaps it had been a mistake to use the frozen DNA of Einstein to supplement his intelligence genes and Ted Bundy for his vicious nature?

    Acting as the model experiment for years to build trust, when he was 19 he simply walked away and never returned. Thus began his calling if you will; the desire to destroy humans and to reproduce. His sex drive was very high and Latet would never miss an opportunity to mate with a female; human or reptile. He could care less if she was willing or not. His libido was not just over the top but also warped. He enjoyed what the Humans called Kinky far too much. Oral sex, anal sex, bondage and pain were all his friends and not a few women had succumbed to his unique charms.

    Merits:
    • Smell: Like most Lizard’s, Latet uses its long tongue to smell the air around him. He can detect a creatures race and gender from some distance away.
    • Strength: Latet is pound for pound four times stronger than the normal human his size. That same muscle mass gives him a good deal of protection as well.
    • Gilled: Having Gills allows Latet to breath in air or water just as easily.

    Shortcomings:
    • Webless: Without any of the lizard-like suction pads on his hands and feet, Latet cannot just climb up a wall or walk across a ceiling. He must travel like a human.
    • Amphibious: A creature in-between land and sea, Latet must spend at least one hour for every 24 submerged in water. Failure to do so will cause his scaled skin to dry, crack and fall off. This can lead to death in a very short time.
    • Mass: due to his high muscle density, Latet weighs more than it seems. He is well over 400 pounds and not a bit delicate. Even when hidden, some surfaces would make a sound under his weight. He also does not slip well into tight spaces.

    Hobbies: Latet has only one; sex. He is driven to reproduce and will impregnate any females that he can.

    If s/he has a favorite shape, a pic of that shape would be nice.  Or maybe a couple different ones of faces known to the Company.

    Finally got my sheet finished! This is the version with the classified bits removed. I sent Caela and Roen the full version. ^.^


    Name: Caelan (Kay-lahn) “Cae” O’Fallan
    Age: *Classified*
    Sex: Unknown - Can appear as male, female, and trans.
    Race: Changeling
    Type: Mimic/Shapeshifter
    Origin: Inspired by various mythologies
    Notable Abilities/Skills:
    • Actor – A natural skill for a shape shifter, acting is second nature to Cae. The ability to mimic accents, adapt to regional slang, etc are included in this.
    • Identity Thief – Finding and adapting someone’s identity takes more than just the ability to look like them. Cae is able to forge various types of documentation and identification with relative ease, though prefers to simply order new copies while in the guise of the victim.
    • Con Artist – Early on, Cae realized that the most profitable way to make money was to con others out of their money. Sometimes it is by posing as a wealthy or renowned person to get access to information and things otherwise out of reach. Sometimes it is for elaborate schemes, theft, etc.
    • Shapeshifting – Cae was born a shapeshifter, and as such can take the form of any person (male or female) and imitate them perfectly, right down to their voice, fingerprints, and DNA.
    • Mixed Martial Arts – Cae has studied various forms of martial arts and though not a master of any, is quite adept at mixing them and switching from one to the other without issue.
    • Multi-lingual:
      • Fluent – Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, French, Spanish, Japanese, Norwegian, Finnish, Russian, Chinese
      • Conversational – Mandarin, Standard Chinese, Arabic, Farsi, Yiddish (don't ask)
    • Immortal – It is quite possible to kill Cae, usually through any method that is fatal to the average human, Cae will never die of old age or “natural causes” and seems immune to most illnesses. This makes it impossible to know Cae’s age for sure.
    Notable Equipment:
    • Forgery Kit – Those forged IDs and documents have to come from somewhere.
    • Multiple Aliases – A natural consequence of Cae’s lifestyle is the need to be able to pick up and disappear at a moment’s notice. As such, there are several dormant aliases around the world waiting for the day Cae needs to become someone else.
    • Several Bank Accounts – Hand in hand with having multiple aliases, Cae has several fairly wealthy bank accounts around the world collecting interest and waiting for the day they are needed.
    • Small Handgun – Cae rarely carries more than a small handgun at any time unless absolutely needed. These are usually small 9mm Smith and Wesson or Rugers, and due to the difficulty in carrying one through customs, Cae owns several hidden in various safes and safe houses around the world.
    Role: Con Artist, Acquisitions Specialist (pretty much anything that might need someone to commit clandestine acts in plain sight).
    Recruitment Status: Yet to be recruited. (am open to already being with the company or brought in at the very beginning if you don’t want to do a plot for Cae’s recruitment)
    Employment History: N/A – Cae has been hired now and then by others for everything from posing as important government officials to further someone’s interests, to making large withdrawls from bank accounts as the account holder, but largely works alone and doesn’t make the client list known.
    Appearance: Cae has the ability to appear as any one at any time.
    Sexuality: Cae seems to be pansexual.
    On/Off: O/Os (Willing to play almost any sexual pairing, though mxm scenes would have to fade to black for now)
    Personality: Cae is something of a mixed bag when it comes to personality, likely due to spending hundreds of years as many different people and needing to adapt to each person imitated. Though playful and mostly good natured, Cae is prone to dark, moody spells. It is often difficult to tell where Cae’s loyalties are, as one day Cae can seem to be your best friend and the next can abandon you to die without so much as batting an eye lash.
    Background:
    It is unknown what year Cae was born, or even specifically where. In fact, very little is known about Cae’s true origins, though there are various histories and dossiers written on the various personas Cae has adapted over the years. It is also known that every single one of those dossiers is subject to speculation, as there is no guarantee that Cae was actually any of those people at any time.
    Merits:
    • Adaptive – Cae adapts to nearly every situation smoothly, able to shift personality, form, speech, and nature to suit the best chance of survival.
    • Renaissance Man/Woman – A jack of all trades and a master of all trades, master of none, Cae has many years of history and during that time has learned the basics of so many skills it seems as if there’s nothing those hands and mind haven’t become familiar with.
    Shortcomings:
    • Untrusting – Sometimes it pays to put your trust in people and not be paranoid. Unfortunately, trusting comes extremely slowly and with great difficulty to Cae.
    • Unstable – Though not at all outwardly obvious to most, Cae is to some extent unstable, having a hard time keeping all the histories and personality in their head straight. This is most apparent during times of great emotional turmoil and stress, though thankfully most situations others see as stressful, Cae does not (like walking in to a bank and posing as a multi billionaire to take out a big withdrawl).
    Hobbies: Martial Arts, dancing, art, reading, gardening, video games
    Face Claim: Currently Listed: Hugh Dancy, Deborah Ann Woll, Alan Cumming, Cristina Ricci, Tilda Swinton, Paul Bettany
