Setting: Modern Era
Demons walk among us. They sleep, eat, wake up, hop on the bus, and generally act as humans do. They have been secretly integrated into human society for as long as anyone can remember. Their disguises are near flawless, and they very rarely attack humans. Our world exists parallel to theirs and has done so for a long time.
There are, of course, a few demons of a more chaotic nature who attempt to take their place at the top of the food chain. These demons are usually taken out by humans who have demonic blood - Demon Hunters.
Demon hunters are the result of a demon mating with a human somewhere along their bloodline. The nature of said demon depends on the characteristics that manifest inside the demon hunters. For example, a werewolf having mated with a human would mean that their children either be afflicted with the curse themselves or become immune to the curse altogether, retaining a few animalistic characteristics. A person with a strong succubus or incubus bloodline may find themselves obtaining a powerful and seductive aura. Some demon hunters control elemental magic; others can speak a range of demonic languages.
Welcome to the Red Lady
You find yourself in Nevada, USA, where there is a particular establishment. A bar that is considered neutral ground in all affairs where demons and humans go to work or to enjoy themselves. You all know of this place. You all frequent there after a long days work of hunting and restoring the balance. Whatever your particular fetish, whatever your wants, there is sure to be a demon or demon blooded there that caters to your needs.
This is the Red Lady.
It is run by a Demon Hunter family with particularly strong Succubus genes. They have run the estabilishment for what seems like an eternity, adapting with the changing times of each decade to cater to any and every need their patrons express.
The current owner is a woman named Avaline, who not only is a frequent face in the bar but is known to pleasure a few clients herself if they take her fancy. She seems perfectly content in using the powers her bloodline has given her to cater to demons and hunters alike. And all the while her ever-present guardian watches, a werewolf known as Sebastian.
The Red Lady is essentially a brothel underneath the cover of a lounge bar. It operates very successfully as both, where some people will come for a drink and some people will come for something more. It offers you a place to unwind and relax in any way you see fit, and can cater to any fetish you may have.
Avaline is in charge of everything, and be warned; if you intend to cause harm on her then you will swiftly feel claws tearing through your throat should Sebastian be keeping watch, which he always is. She has the air of someone who isn't all what she seems, like she isn't just 'helping' her patrons. Perhaps she's using her powers of manipulation for other means, but you can never be sure.
Welcome to the Red Lady.
This RP is one where a demon or a demon blooded human will cater to your needs in a particular scene. After or before that, you can all feel free to hang around, stay at the club and talk to other players, or talk to the other NPCs that are already in the establishment.
In this group, you can play Demons or Hunters, and either Workers or Patrons.
Demons are creatures that have existed for far longer than humans have roamed the earth. They mostly live on a seperate plane of existance simply called the Demon World, which is a world very similar but very different from our own. They can come in all shapes and sizes, from monstrousities to beauties. Anything that isn't human is considered a demon, so even things like elves, pixies, fairies, mermaids, stuff from fairytales and legends would be considered demons.
Demon Hunters are humans who have demonic blood. It can be quite potent and powerful or fairly watered down, giving only the barest of enhancements. Some demon hunters have no demonic blood at all and simply rely on new technology and weapons other hunters have invented. Bloodlines can come in as many variations as demons themselves, from elemental powers, to powers of manipulation, or immunties from curses. Hunters are simply called Demon Hunters regardless of if they actively hunt simply because it disinguishes them from normal humans.
Workers can be either Demon or Hunter, but must have met Mistress Avaline's personal approval to work there. You must have earned her trust, usually by doing some task for her or coming at a personal recommendation to her. They can work for the brothel side of things, catering to the desires of patrons with the many facilities hidden away in the backs of the club, or can simply work in the bar serving drinks and food and waiting tables.
Patrons can be either Demon or Hunter as well, and are not screen so thoroughly as the workers are, however there is a bouncer on the door to make sure no trouble is caused, and no average riff-raff is let through the doors. Many people are frequent regulars, both for the company and the drinks, and it isn't uncommon for hunters to choose it as their meeting place to swap information or gather intel.
After all, it's amazing what you hear in the midst of pleasure...
