Just wanted to say that I've been working on mine. I'm a bit at a loss for images, though.

 I googled "1900s Gothic women" and "Steampunk women" and found a lot of options that seemed to fit the vibe

If you need help, I'd be happy to.

And, DarkGoddess, your sheet looks just fine to me. The only problem is see is her background. If she was torching villages or killing innocent monsterfolk, the RSH would probably, um, kill her dead. For real this time. Although I can think of a way to make it work! If, say, the RSH sent in Jack to kill Nyx and upon arrival, found a woman not unlike herself with a similar history. She could, perhaps, convince the RSH to take her on. It would make the background work  and give our characters a bit of a connection.

 Ohhh I like that idea! I will leave it up to you what you would prefer, I don't mind editing! Since she was far from stealthy about her rampage, maybe the first town she hit they were able to hold her off for a while and evacuate, so she didn't manage to kill anyone. Then before she could hit another town your character found her. She would be on foot, and I imagine the lair of the Necromancer was in an area where towns are few and far apart. That way there was only some destruction of property and intent to harm innocents, which is a little more likely to be forgiven than having a stack of bodies on her hands.

That works just fine for me.

Definitely still working on my concept.

An idea I had was with the ink, being cursed by it.  Not sure to what extent, but enough to label him as "different" in the eyes of so many as I'm going to make him human anyways. I had thought of say his family perished (wife and child) and driven a little bit crazed at the time hunted down a manifestation of the ink.  Trying to control it he found himself in to deep and nothing good came of his attempts to control it.

Name: Kyler Bishop
Age: 43
Sex: Male
Race: Human (Ink Cursed)
Role: Inventor / Knight
Sexuality: Omni-Curious
Notable Abilities/Skills:
  • Skilled Inventor: Give him a layout, a plan, some materials or even leave him to his own devices and ask him to make something, and he will.  Kyler is extremely skilled at creating things, seeing what can be used in the most unique ways that make life easier for anyone.
  • Sword Expertise (specifically the Cutlass): Since he was constantly taught b his father and other ship mates on his travels he has learned to make his cutlass feel like an extension of his own arm.  Both skill in attack and defending he is quit the swordsman when it becomes necessary.
Notable Equipment:
  • Cutlass: During his rampage of revenge he remembered all that he had read as a child.  The books were of medieval nature, some talking about hero's fighting certain ways and certain ways to train.  It all seemed to click when he snapped, the cutlass seeming like an extension of his arm.  None the less, he would work on his skills and stances daily.  Since growing older and tinkering more and more, he has made a few modifications to his sword, like silver edged and small battery in the hilt which produces a shocking effect to knock out a horse, literally he's done it before. 
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
  • Grappling bracer: One of his easier and minor inventions was the grappling bracer.  A single gauntlet that would fit over the wearers dominant hand giving them free range of movement as needed.  Yet when the occurrences would rise, the wielder only need point their arm in the direction they wanted and squeeze said hand into a tight fist.  This reaction would cause a small blade to shoot forth from the wrist leading a thin wire, rated up to 300 lbs, about 3o feet before stopping or hitting said target. 
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
  • Light Orbs a.k.a Flash Bangs: Small crystalline orbs with a copper banding that exploded on contact with hard surfaces.  They emit a high concussion blast that is detrimental to hearing as well as bright flash of light disorienting most.  Secret side effect, it actually chars the skin of vamps to close to the blast, un able to be healed by their abilities.

Employment History: He's been working with the RSH for a little over 6 years now.  He fights only when he is called upon, otherwise his time is spent in his shop working on gadgets and weapons for others to better defend this world.  When he isn't doing that, he can be found in the library, buried deep in books about The Ink with a bottle of whisky at his side.

Personality: When all is said and done, Kyler is honestly a nice guy who would do anything for anyone.  However he does have his issues and emotional baggage.  Some would classify it as bi-polar others would call him depressed.  There are times when he can be nice, wanting to chat and see how your day is and was.  Yet there are times, and this has become more frequent, where he is withdrawn from the world.  Annoyance painting his face as he could snap and be rude.  When he drinks, he can be kind of a dick, rude and crude, thinking he's a ladies man only to wake up hours later angry at himself for the fool he was.

Hobbies: Reading and researching on "The Ink" to try and find a cure for himself.  Tinkering with his inventions. Drinking... A lot...

Background: Kyler wasn't born a hunter nor was he born an inventor, he was born to American immigrants. His father an Englishman from London, his mother and Irish cook who could knock your socks off with her skills in the kitchen.  Kyler's father was a traveling business man, selling everything and anything.  He settled down after finding the Irishwoman in the states and falling for her instantly.  Not even a year later Kyler was born, scrawny and crying.  The years passed as he would attend school after school never really finding a home as his father was always moving.  He never really found a liking for classes only really content with reading and being alone since he never really had any friends.  This would soon change as Kyler's father would land the deal of a life time.  Settling down in the suburbs of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, the older man became a sales man for a famous inventor.  Helping the inventor market his ideas across the world.  At times Kyler would join his father, traveling from the states across the seas to many countries.  Yet what he really wanted to do was stay home with the inventor, truthfully the inventors daughter.  Scarlet was her name, and the young boy grew quite fond of her. 

Friendship became instant and as a few more years passed they were set to be married.  There wasn't ever a happier couple in the United States, an inseparable pair the two were.  He would only break away from her to tutor under her fathers guidance.  Because as they grew to love each other, Kyler felt the calling to invent things to better peoples lives.  He started out with small nick knacks that would do tricks, or put on little light shows.  Yet his work was always top notch even for his smaller devices.  That was until he created the "light orb" or a device he dubbed the "flash bang".   A small crystalline ball with a copper ring about it, when struck against a hard surface the materials would react and explode causing a deafening concussion blast yet more so the bright flash that burnt brighter than the sun for an instance.  He was a young adult now, and both his father and father in law were proud of him.  They set up a get together to meet with current military to showcase his latest invention.  With a soft kiss to his pregnant wife he was off on a train heading to the capital for a few weeks.

His time in D.C. was remarkable, yet Kyler came home to desecration.  His family has all been murdered, and he was charged with fleeing the crime.  While in custody though he met a man who freed him and revealed to him what truly had happened.  The inventor had created a device for another hunter group which had slain quit a few vampires.  Seeking vengeance, a few vampires came to slaughter all they could, taking everything from Kyler.  At first he was perplexed, confused as to how monsters could even be real.  He had heard the stories, read them, seen the new articles, yet he never took any of them as truth.  Insanity set in and he spent the next 3 years hunting down any monster he could, reeking havoc on not just them, but whole groups.  Inventing items to take mass amounts out, like silver fleck grenades, balls that when broken release silver dust into the air putting werewolves into fatal asthmatic attacks.  Cruelty was his world, and vengeance was his to hold.  He spent years hunting the vampires that murdered all he had.  Until finally the day came where found them.  Scars littered his body after the fight, his cutlass gleaming in the light as he held his last flash bang in one hand.  Begging for mercy the vamp, a weasel of what the rest were, bartered his life to be spared.

The vampire lay dead at his feet, Yet his anger wasn't quenched.  He planned more attacks, and he would've had them seen through if the RSH hadn't stepped in.  Sending in one of their best agents, she was to end the threat to the peace that they lived in.  Yet when she arrived she found a man so lost in guilt it was sad.  Bottles of booze lay mixed with the inventions that had given him a name in the States.  Pardoning for his sins the agent got him recruited to the RSH to serve and protect with his unique creations.  Yet guilt still ate at him nightly, the bottle was his only escape.  It wasn't until the Great Nikola Tesla had refereed to the essence of everything, that a gleam of hope popped into his head.   

Guilt stricken he hunted the Ink down, finding an area where the manifestation was thought to be.  Pooled up like puddles from the rain, the oily black substance lay through the grass of an open field.   Laying articles of clothing and hair of his wife down he began the incantation of what he though was a spell to bring the living back from the dead.  Yet, as an odd smoke filled the clearing and the skies began to darken, he was sadly mistaken.  Wisps of darkness lashed out at him, grasping and pulling him towards the center of the field, a demonic laughter thanking him for freedom.  The darkness began to eat at him, his hair greying and his body feeling frail.  His skin began to bruise as dark blotches began to appear all across him.  He was surly dead, if it wasn't for his flash bang.  Yanking free with all his might he slammed the glass orb down, light flashing about him and a deafness soon came.  He lay in the grass holding his head from the pain of light and sound, yet he could feel his heart wasn't hurting anymore and when the world came back into view he could see the darkness was dissipating.  He was soaked from the ink, as he lay in one of the puddles curious as to what had just happened.

Weeks passed with nothingness, silence in his head and all around.  Until one night while he slept he dreamt of the shadow that held him hostage.  The same demonic voice, calling to him, screaming at him that it will claim him and his world.  When he woke he found the bruises and blotches of darkness on his chest and arms had returned.  Fear swept through him, he knew the RSH would find out, he knew something was up with the weird smoke, was it their hunting the ink also?  He knew he needed to do something, to find some cure to remove the blotches. Yet the nights remained the same, dreams of terror and anguish filled him, soon his nights ended in the cup to drown all thoughts from him for him to gain proper sleep.  He needed to do something, yet he wasn't sure on what.

Merits:
  • Relentless: He isn't a superhuman like most of the others.  Yet he still has heart and still has the will to press forward.  He never gives up, even if it means hurting himself, to get the job done or to save someone from something. 
  • Engineering Smarts: Since being an inventor he has a slight knack for figuring out puzzles or deciphering things that most might blankly stare at.
Shortcomings:
  • He is only human after all: Kyler, unlike most from the RSH, is still in fact only human.  The Ink Curse hasn't done much in ways prolonging his health or giving him super human strength.  So when push comes to shove, if Mr. Shove is bigger than Mr. Push, Kyler will go down.  So no he can't leap far, or lift boulders over his head.  No he doesn't heal quickly nor can he run fast.
  • Alcoholism: Due to his constant night terrors and the Shadow monster he let loose upon this world Kyler has turned to a life in the cup.  Often he can be found sipping from a flask to silent the voices in his head.  Or when sleeping, bottles of whisky or rum strewn about his room as if they were clothing.  It has affected his abilities at time being unreliable or to far drunk to battle impending danger.  As well it has been an issue brought to light by the RSH on many occasions.
  • Ink Curse: His body is covered with what seems like bruises that fade from sight or grow in dark color as they seem fit.  As of this moment, other than linking him to the Shadow, they haven't cause any physical discomfort, just a reminder to himself and the world what he tried and failed to do.

Still working on my sheet, but so far the concept I've come up with is a dhampir orphan who wound up working for the Sicilian mafia in its early days, worked her way up and had the whole thing fall apart. She's since taken to using the skills she's learned as a criminal assassin to hunting monsters. Her weapons of choice are a sword, knives (melee, not throwing), and a custom revolver. As for the specifics of the sword, I was thinking she'd use a basket hilted broadsword, but I think a cane sword would be more era appropriate.

As far as sexual preferences go, she's pansexual with a dominant streak to her.

Offline MissFireTopic starter

@Florence Well, we already have a dhampir. I'd like a diverse cast. Do you have any other race ideas? Werewolf? Dullahan? Banshee? Human?

@Chreestafer, he looks pretty good so far but needs a few tweaks. Grammar and syntax needs some fixing in general. Can you find another reason for him to be trained in swordplay though? The age of piracy had pretty much long passed at this point in time. There would be no reason for the RSH to contact him at that point in time. They wouldn't call him in since at that point in time he's still basically unknown. Plus, he's not going to be meeting with the RSH and then suddenly be surprised that monsters are real - monsters are the RSH's deal. If they'd contact him, it would be to employ him.

Then, he has the same problem Nyx had. If he's slaughtering vampires and other inteligent monsters with abandon, the RSH is going to notice and come after him. That puts a real strain on The Pact. Intelligent monsters are supposed to play nice with people. The ones that are 'feral' or go rogue, the RSH hunts down. The RSH doesn't like random civilians jumping in. So, they'd likely send Jack in to investigate. If you want, we can do a similar thing and have her recruit him that way.

Also, the Ink isn't.. wispy. It's like, well, ink. It's black, oily, viscous. It doesn't have anything to do with demons or demonic power. It's the essence of creation. Other than those details, what happened to him is fine. Trying to rez his family is a cool bit of backstory and a good excuse for him to go messing with power beyond his control. He can have those blotches all over where the Ink grabbed at him and have odd dreams that terrify him nightly with horrible images that he can't remember when he wakes up.

So, how do you feel about this;
1. He goes on his monster-killing rampage.
2. Jack is sent to investiage and she introduces him to the RSH and gets him recruited.
3. With the facilities and connections the RSH offers (their resident in-house scientist is Nikola Tesla!) Kyler hears about the Ink
4. Going off on his own, he messes with the Ink and has his event there. Now he has to try and hide this or the RSH might find out what he's done.

I'll work right away on it.  Do forgive my grammatical errors as I do a lot of this via phone at times and did so with this character sheet.  I'll work on correcting that for future purposes though. 

I like the idea of the connections, those work perfectly! The shadow was just an idea I thought you may be able to run with and use as your own if you'd like.  As well with the curse he has.  I haven't highlighted what the blotches do or if they're a side affect of something much worse, yet that is left open ended for your purpose as well.  Yet all in all I love the connection ideas and ill work on fixing what I can.

Do you have room for another one as well?

Offline dblkrose

To be specific now that I thought about it I was actually thinking of something that was more of the Werewolf type but with a little twist.

An Egyptian Anubis Warrior.

He would appear as an normal Egyptian man but have the enhanced abilities of a Dog (Hearing, Smell) and in full Anubis mode some combat abilities and supernatural toughness.

Name: Djari "The Jackal" Sakadian
Age: 28 (Has existed as a Scout in the Army of Anubis since the First Dynasty (c. 3100 Ė c. 2890 BC)
Sex: Male
Race: Egyptian (Anibus Dog Warrior)
Role: Scout
Sexuality: Heterosexual
 
Notable Abilities/Skills:
  • Stealth: As a Scout for the Army of Anubis Djari has mastered the art of moving swift and undetected. In his Jackal form Djari can move virtually undetected in low light or under the cover of night; his jet black skin blending perfectly with darkness and shadows. His movements are practically soundless even when in full sprint or climbing. In his human form he still possess a measure of this ability and can surprise, evade, or infiltrate with the skill of a world class thief or assassin.
  • Enhanced Senses: In full Jackal form Sakadian possess the senses and ability that are normally attributed to a canine enhanced to a supernatural degree. Both hearing and smell are extremely heightened. Djari can see in completely darkness and his sense of taste is highly refine. Like most predators and animals he is capable of sensing danger on an instinctive level (though not the exact nature) as well as some limited weather prediction abilities. As a human Djari Sakadian possess some degree of heighten awareness though it is at the limits of human ability.
  • Enhanced Running Speed: As an Anubis Dog Warrior, Djari Jackal Form allows him to reach at top speed of 40 Kilometers per hour (25 mph) or maintain 20 Kilometers per hour (12.5 mph) for an unholy length of time and distance. This speed is achieved by running upright not on all fours. This speed can be used to scale vertical surface far easier than normally would be possible as well as achieving unnatural heights in a running jump. Again as a human Djari possess this skill to a limited degree and is able to achieve speeds common to an Olympic athlete
  • Jackal Form: Djari Sakadian true form is a that of an Anubis Dog Warrior which in essence is a corpses like humaniod with the head of a Jackal standing about 9 feet tall. In this form Djari possess an unnatural level of endurance, requires very little food or water, and has a high tolerance to pain. Djari can only be completely destroyed by decapitation which reduces his body to black ash. This form has the added advantage of both canine teeth and claws. Sakadian uses a special amulet, worn around the neck to transform himself into a human. This transformation normally appears as black ash falling away from the Jackal form to reveal a human male underneath while reverting back is a sudden metamorphosis similar to a lycanthropic change without the agony.

Notable Equipment:
  • Anubis Amulet: Djari's Amulet allows him to maintain the form of a human male indefinitely. In essence the Amulet holds his Jackal Form at bay allowing him to experience the world as a mortal. Removal of the Anubis Amulet will cause Sakadian to transform back to his natural form almost immediately though Djari has been practicing on maintaining his human form thru sheer effort of will for a few moments after the Amulet is out of contact. Also extreme emotions or pain can overload the Amulet ability reverting Djari back to his Jackal Form. The Amulet is triggered mentally and worn around the neck and is normally not displayed for obvious reasons. Djari's Sakadian's human form does not change in appearance or relative age and damage to the mortal shell is normally mitigated in the transformation but while human his as vulnerable as a normal man. For instance he can be incapacitated by a blow to the head or drugged; if mortally wounded he will bleed out and appear to die until his amulet is removed. He can experience pain and thus be tortured though he would normal transform to avoid such things. Decapitation in human form is as fatal to Djari as if in Jackal Form. It has been rumored that anyone else wearing the Amulet of Anubis will experience some unique side effects.
  • Ring of Anubis: The Ring of Anubis allows Djari to exist in the mortal plane and loss of the ring before a sunrise would cause Djari to expelled back to the underworld. If the proper ceremony is performed Sakadian can be summoned back after sundown but the ritual would involve a living human sacrifice. The ring possess one more unique ability which allows the wearer to be drawn to Death. This can manifest itself in a number of ways and is not actively control by the wearer. At times it will draw the Anubis Dog Warrior to the location of someone who has just past or give him a sense of someone who is about to die. It also helps him seek out the undead.
  • Black Bladed Khopesh: Djari Sakadian's weapon of choice is a ancient Black Bladed Khopesh which is actually made up of two blades. It can be wielded as a single blade or broken down to form thinner twin blades. He is very skilled with this weapon and it's type and has been known to dual wield against multiple combatants with deadly skill.

Appearance: Djari's Jackal form has been describe above but in summary it is a nine foot tall humanoid with dark skin and the head of a Jackal. It has a leanness to it that is almost skeletal, it is monstrously swift and deadly with both razor sharp teeth and claws on both hands and feet. Properly attired for combat Sakadian will make use of an ancient set of Egyptian armor and headdress. As a mortal human male, Djari is a lean but tightly muscular man standing just about 6'1" and looks to be between 28 and 34 years of age. He has developed a taste for fashion and the finer things, speaks with an Egyptian accent and is considered by some to be quite handsome.

Employment History: When the RSH ran afoul a rather destructive and powerful mummified Pharaoh who reawaken after his remains where disturbed and brought to London they beseech the Egyptian God Anubis for help by ritual ceremony. He answered by sending his best scout Djari to the mortal plane to aid in the return of the Pharaoh to the afterlife. With the help of the Dog Warrior the RSH was able to track down and the Mummy and defeat it, returning its remain to a lost tomb near Cairo, Egypt. Djari found mortal life to be fascinating and decided that he would resist the call of Anubis to return to the underworld and such risking the wrath of his Lord & God. After 5 years with the RSH Djari is most effective in tracking down monsters and leading Hunters to their prey; this is especially true for Undead creatures.

Personality: In the animal kingdom, jackals are often mistakenly thought of as lazy scavengers who donít like to take risks or venture outside of their own territory;  Djari Sakadian embodies these traits to most observers.  Seen as an opportunist to most Djari will normally sit back and let others do the hard work often looking bored, disinterested, and lazy yet when the time is right he will step in and make the most out a given situation display both skill and cunning. Most who are close to Sakadian will realize this is a playful illusion that the man cultures to disguise his true nature. Djari is at times hard to read and isn't above living in squalor and eating scraps; yet this will always be part of a larger plan to eventual achieve extravagant comfort and finery. Sakadian can be self-indulgent, but will never sacrifice his future security for momentary bliss as overall personal security, routine, and territory is truly what the man seeks. The Jackal has a reputation for being sullen, evasive, and even moody, but can be quite social and even charming when the need arrives. A truly pack animal Djari will always be loyal to his friends in the RSH and if need be defend them to the death. Jackals mate for life so that any love interest that Djari has will be primary and he will be possessive. In his more bestial form Djari Sakadian prefers to scout ahead and attack in blinding surprise fashion. Though capable of holding his own in a straight up fight he likes to be on the outside of combat waiting for the right time to make his move. He is capable of speech in Jackal form but tends to just respond much like a canine, with growls and expressions normal to a doglike creature.

Hobbies: Djari has made quiet a reputation as a expert dog breeder & trainer and runs a world famous kennel. He seems to actually be able to communicate with the animals and his dogs have place highly in every competition and hunt they participate in.

Background: Djari "The Jackal" Sakadian served in the Army of Anubis when Egypt was merely a gathering of tribes along the Nile. As the Lead Scout of Anubis's Army there wasn't anything that Djari could not track and find. He would range out on his own to located objects and beings that had escape the underworld and report back to his Lord & God. Skilled with Khopesh he mission sometimes involved the killing of an enemy from the shadows though Djari never consider himself a true assassin. As Anibus and his minions left the mortal plane and fell to myths and legend Djari would still venture into the world of man fascinated by their lives and their desire to create and build incredible wonders. When the RSH called to Anubis for aid, Djari literally leap at the opportunity. After the task was completed he was called back but he had stolen some artifacts from the vast treasure of the underworld that would allow him to not only stay in the mortal plane but exist there as human being. Djari took the last name Sakadian and walked back from the tomb near Cario to joined the human race. Sakadian lived off the streets using his wits and charm and scavenge out a measure of wealth and fortune. He soon found the members of the RSH and through them created an identity as a renown dog trainer.
 
Merits:
  • Loyalty: "You are my Pack, you are my Life." Despite his acting to the contrary Djari will ferociously defend those he calls friend even at the cost of his life. He will normally go above and beyond to help out a member of his inner circle and he will never leave a member of his pack behind.
  • Tenacity: "I have never given up the hunt. Never." Once Sakadian is on your trail he will find you; no matter how long or how far he has to travel. If you are being tracked by the Jackal you can't even escape by dying as he will simply follow you into the afterlife.
Shortcomings:
  • No Moral Compass: The Jackal doesn't really have a since of morality and though he understand the concept of right and wrong he doesn't really care which side he happens to be on. He does have honor and lives by his own set of codes and since he has aligned himself with the RSH he will follow their guideline of morality to not upset his companions. Yet left to his own there is no guarantee Djari will do the right thing and he is very likely to simply remain neutral in any given situation.
  • Morbid Sense of Humor: Death is a state of being that is part of the natural cycle of all things. As a creature under the aegis of Anubis, Djari is not only fascinated by Death but finds the act of actually dying to be some what humorous, "You mortals make such hilarious sounds when you die and why do you keep clutching your throat as if you could actually stop the bleeding!?"
  • Technologically Inept: As a being from the "Old World" Sakadian does not fully comprehend technology or it uses and is quiet inept at using the relatively advance technology of this day an age. He is learning but hasn't yet grasp why you would have a pocket watch instead of an hourglass or a sundial. He is not stupid, just ignorant.
  • Hatred of Cats: Djari hates Cats with a passion and Felines hate him and will become very vocal and aggressive in his presence. He is not above becoming just as vocal and even doing harm to a Cat if given a chance.
  • The Wrath of Anubis: Djari Sakadian has in effect deserted the Army of Anubis as well as stolen powerful artifacts that he wasn't meant to have. He has no illusion that a fate worse than death awaits him should he fall in the mortal world or lose his ring. He also knows that sooner of later his Lord & God will come for him one way or another. To this end, Djari doesn't like to put himself in harms way if he can avoid it which sometimes makes him seem a bit cowardly.
