None. This version of New York is a mystery, but hey: Cassie’ll bounce back and get a job…Maybe as a bartender or something.Home World Information:
The world of Mortal Kombat is a mirror of the mundane world, but with a clear twist. Much like the world of Street Fighter, Martial Artists are able to gain extreme forms of power in this universe, and inside the Mortal Kombat world is a set of other worlds: The Netherrealm, Outworld, and others would dare to lay siege to the Earthrealm. Because of this, a unique set of defenders; more powerful than any mere human, must keep the realm safe by participating in one-on-one duels, often to the death, known as Mortal Kombat.Appearance/Style Description:
Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Cage appears much as she does in her game: sporting either a casual set of gym equipment
, complete with her own name branded on the thigh, or a form-fitting synthetic uniform with holsters for her various weapons. While the armour may look
like the idea of a sex-crazed gimp general, it actually covers up a layer of Kevlar reinforced under armour
, designed to make her just a little bit more durable than your average piece of crap human.Sexuality
: Bisexual – Cassie is a creature driven as much by instinct and impulse than by anything else. She does what she wants, when she wants and that often translates to who
she wants. Personality:
Witty, charming, funny, and seemingly hyper-confident, Cassie is a force to be reckoned with and a person that seems to attract attention in all the right, and wrong, ways. While she seems like the most perfect-est of rounded, well-developed only children; complete with brash over-confidence, and an inability to know fear or shame. In truth, Cassie is nursing more than a few parental issues. She is constantly striving to prove herself against the legends of her heritage, and that sometimes results in her taking risks that she should not. She strives to be the best, if only to prove everyone wrong, and prove that she is Cassie Cage, Kick-ass defender of Earthrealm; not Cassandra Cage, Sonya and Johnny’s daughter.History:
Cassie Cage, having recently managed to stomp her $500 boot print into Shinnok’s pasty white butt cheek, was starting to enjoy some of the perks of being one of Earthrealm’s premier defenders. She was being trusted with duties by the Thunder God, Raiden, and she was taking steps towards finding a master who could help her develop the Glow. A war was brewing between Earthrealm and Outworld, and Cassie was poised to lead the charge against the Khan and his forces.
Yet things changed when she was contacted by an otherworldly force.
At first, she thought it was the Elder Gods. It seemed natural that they would contact her, after her role in defeating the fallen Elder god. But she was told of something beyond her realms, beyond the minor conflict between Earthrealm and Outworld. She was warned about the Legion, and how it would consume Earthrealm inevitably, unless the Protagonists could stop it. Cassie accepted the call, partly because of the thrill, and partly because these Protagonists had chosen her, and not her father or mother. They had made her
the champion of Earthrealm, so how could she say no?Current Situation:
Recently joined the Protagonists, is looking for a chance to show off her skills.Weapon:
Pistol – A run of the mill pistol with run of the mill bullets. It serves a purpose in either distracting, damaging or deleting the baddies, depending on their scale of Legion douche-baggery.
Baton – A metal, extendable baton which serves the purpose of beating down baddies into a messy, bloody pulp. The force of the baton has proven to be extreme in Cassie’s hand, dislodging the jaws of men, monsters and even the occasional fallen-god.
Stun Knife – A simple enough upgrade to a normal knife, the Stun knife is a sharp, short bladed weapon that can emit a powerful, non-lethal shock in the right circumstances. It emits the shock from the back side of the actual knife, so it is best used when someone either deflects the knife’s attack, or when you stab someone. It was made famous by renowned Foxhound member, Solid Snake.Stats
- We have 5 different stats in the game. We do not roll for hitting, or use it to track health. The purpose of these stats is only
to help the GMs during the free-form fights. We have a better gauge of how strong you are, versus how strong another character is. And vice versa. New characters will start with 4 points to spend. Strength, Agility, Stamina, and Power will all start at 1. Reputation starts at 0. If you have an issue - please contact any of the GMs or post in one of our OOC threads - and one of our players will help you out! Strength
–3: Above average in strength, Cassie is able to break bones, ligaments and balls with her blows…So don’t get handsy!Agility
– 2: Cassie’s fighting style revolves around overwhelming opponents with hand-to-hand blows. She hits fast and hard, so watch out.Stamina
- 2: As far as humans go, Cassie is peak in terms of physical conditioning. She can take punches, be frozen, be set on fire and be stabbed, and avoid being outright killed. Kicking ass sometimes requires getting your ass a little kicked, y’know.Power
– 1: Untempered and uncontrolled, Cassie has some access to the power her father affectionate names: ‘the glow’. It is something to do with some crazy war-monks from a thousand years ago, or something, but when she does access it (normally in times of extreme emotional stress), she is a freakin’ juggernaut!Reputation
– 0: In this new Protagonist legion, Cassie is an unknown entity, and she has made every attempt to keep it that way. People don’t know Cassie, and more importantly, they don’t know Mommy or Daddy. She wants to keep it that way…at least that last part. Bitch, she wants all the fan clubs, later.Special Powers:
Combat Expert – Having thought Gods, Khans, Heroes, and Villians for a good decade or something now, Cassie is a butt kicking machine. She fights mainly with her hand to hand skills, and as such can fight people who wield weapons without them. She is quick, strong, and fierce without her kit…With it? She’ll kick all sorts of butt.
The Glow – A long time ago, some crazy Mediterranean cult began to selectively breed and train warriors, who could fight for and against the gods. At some point, this cult got frisky or something, because the Cage lineage seems to possess an undeniably potent version of this power, known pretty much exclusively as ‘The Glow’. The Glow is an untapped power for Cassie, but in times of emotion she can use the power to augment her strength, agility, and stamina. If she can train and control this power, the possibilities are far more exciting.Strengths:
Kicking ass and taking names – Pretty self-explanatory, Cassie is a natural born butt-kicker. She likes it, she likes looking good while doing it, and she likes getting better at it. Cassie is gifted at fighting, to be sure, but she is even more gifted at learning how
to fight. She picks things up really quickly, and adapts them to her own style even quicker.
Adaptable – Cassie is able to quickly adjust to a situation, both inside combat and outside of it. That means that she handles pressure and surprises better than most. Does a team need a leader? Cassie’s got you covered. Does the group need a pilot, or a shooter? Cassie’ll do it. Does the group need some quick money? Eh, Cassie could do a bit of stripping. Weaknesses:
Human after all – Cassie, while a hell of a strong human, is only a human. She might have some fancy powers, but if you shoot her enough times, she’ll die. She can’t fly, she can’t breathe in space or under water, she can’t heal that quickly either. She is thoroughly mortal.
Poor diplomat – Cassie doesn’t have any particular golden tongue, when it comes to diplomatic things at least. The last time she tried to play that particular role, she nearly started a war with another realm. On a personal level? Sure, Cassie is a funny, fun person. Diplomacy though? Shudders
