Finished one. i don't know whether I was genius or just plain lazy but I like the idea of having a beautiful girl suffering from suppressed personality who meets her special someone in the program who manages to free her mind from the curse. Just seemed so romantic
I hope the story isn't too lackluster though, I wasn't wuite happy with it.
Mind you the flaw in my logic is that someone would have to be willing to have a character go into a relationship with her which is stupid for a first character so I tried to at least ease that process a little by making her bisexual.
If you're wondering who I'm referring to as Medus in her history the Medus were another species I was going to create but creating two species at once becomes so obnoxious after a while (been sitting here for seven hours straight thinking of concepts, going through my da picture collection etc.). For a quick reference, Medus look like this: Player Name:
Moonlight GolemHome Plane
: NocturneSpecial Strengths
- enhanced speed and flexibility
- doesn't need food to survive Specific weaknesses or vulnerabilities
- Moonlight golems are composed of a soul and a body made of compatible relics, as such any powers that sever magical connections or devour souls become lethal to them.
- get along badly with others originating from nocturne (fear - see description)
- needs moonlight every other day to survive.Description:
Moonlight Golems are creatures created through a human soul fusing with magical artifacts during full-moon, igniting a flame that allows the soul to live with the relics as a body created to resemble a humanoid form as closely as possible. Golems are mindless as long as their personality hasn't been freed, killing every living thing in their path and eating it to fuel their fire. The stronger the fire the stronger the golem becomes, but the fire is only kept alight when the moon shines so excessive periods without moonlight can become lethal.
The soul is only needed to awaken the golem, it does not retain memories and stays suppressed as long as it hasn't been freed in a way that varies from soul to soul. In their suppressed state a golem will use it's often combat-focused body, to go on a mindless rampage on everything living, making it a feared sight for weaker inhabitants or humans of Nocturne. The fire of a golem is what keeps a golem together, and while the fire burns brightest in full moon, it's dangerously weak during sunlight. Thanks to the protective metal her body is made of she is mostly safe, but things like swimming are impossible. Only the head is to some part organic. Because of that the head can't be there in the first place so the golem has to retrieve one. It searches until it kills it's first victim and assimilates it's head. As the golem's endless walk continues, it searches for parts that look like her human form, assimilating them until her face resembles that of her human form, or an idealized version of it depending on the soul's personality. The headless stage is the most dangerous one for a golem as other predators see them as weak when they have no head and destroy them. The headless stage is only a day to a maximum of a week but their nature of simply walking forwards endlessly dooms them to run across someone at some point, making the amount of golems that survive the headless phase only about 60%. Due to their rarity this number might vary greatly from area to area but when they passed the headless phase most species hide from them, allowing their lifespan to reach an average of 100 years until a higher ranked creature or a gang of half-competent creatures destroy them.
Only about 3% of golems awake from their mindless slaughter, often not living long because other predators see their awakening as weakness they can use. When awakened the golems still don't retain memory but are able to speak and think, unlocking the human senses one by one. They're often confused or horrified by their path of slaughter, those that aren't killed by other predators committing suicide during the first few hours of their awakening.Concealment:

When in normal state (beginning of rp): -mindless (attacks on sight)
- Affectionate - Glad she has someone to take care of her during her awakened state, she almost reactively decided to make up her gruesome past.
- Intelligent - Even with her lacking life experience she learns quickly, her intelligence above average.
- Charismatic - With her awakening she gained a certain charm unique to her, combining with her appearance to make her seem unique and precious.
- Discouraged - Remembering what she did during her mindless state makes her depressed and makes her question her right to live under the humans.
- Forgiving - She commited so many horrific deeds that no small mistake shocks or bothers her anymore. In her mind there's more important things than hacking around on small mistakes.
- pretty- I dare you to say no to that face
- Sensitive - any kind of rejection makes her connect it to her heritage, resulting in depression and social anxietyHistory:
The story begins with her human form. A young woman, forced to work long shifts for the Medus, a snake folk living under ground. The work served as tribute to the Medus, securing their safety. People who failed to pay were transformed into a Medus. It wasn't a glorious life but she and others managed to keep themselves alive, at least until they became ill. While the Medus were keen on keeping their slaves healthy and fed, exhaustion was a completely different factor. A woman as young as she was, she was doomed to collapse at some point. Her illness wasn't severe but with her constant state of exhaustion it was easy for the bacteria to take over her body and kill her.
A soul desperate for a better life, resenting it's years of slavery traveled, resisting the temptation of the afterlife. It took a while, flying past the castles and cities of Nocturne until it found a few weapons and parts of debris scattered through a small area. Not caring how it got there or even able to comprehend such information, the soul began to collect the parts under the full moon, entranced by the process. Once the soul arranged the parts to fit it's picture of itself. The light of the moon fused the parts together, the soul sacrificing consciousness to live again. Once the body ignited in it's greenish blue flames, signaling it's completion, it stood up, devoid of thought.
The headless phase began. A boar crossed her path, scared at her sudden appearance. Her claw ended it's life quickly, stealing it's eyes to look for prey. Over the years it collected more and more different pieces to form one face, meant to resemble the souls deepest wishes and ideals. She was one of those not killed during her headless phase and she survived for 13 years until a rift suddenly grabbed her and thrusted her through a thread that connected Terra and Nocturne, making her reemerge in the wildlands of California. Her rampage was dealt with quickly, though difficult to stop. After a very difficult capture she was brought to protective for studying.Family:
