Mass Effect: Legacy || A Sandbox ME Universe RP with Plot


Game Links
OOC


In this time, there is no Shepard; great soldier and hero to every inhabitant in the universe. In this time, Reapers do not torment or live as just a mere horror legend to scare organic beings. What takes place now, in this Mass Effect Universe, is something unexpected – but not completely. Remember the Thorian? You know the giant plant like species that could just mind control and duplicate any organic species within their range? The Thorian has reached heights that no one thought possible for such stationary, plant like species. The Exogeni Corporation and its employees, along with the Feros colony, have worked alongside the Thorian as mind slaves. Against their will, the Exogeni employees have started to spread Thorian seeds to different organic colonies in attempt to control and dominant every lesser species in the galaxy. The process is slow, but happening under Alliance and Council radar.

It is up to new found heroes to get to the root of the problem and stop it from spreading. There will be challenges; however, many players will face enemies and those willing to assist the Thorian to achieve its ultimate goal. The most frightening thing is not knowing exactly what they’re capable of. The Thorian, which was already an established intelligent species, can now transfer and alter organic appearance through sexual means. That’s right folks – we have some real Alien shit going on here.

What our people do now will be the Legacy they leave behind for the universe. If they fail, then the legacy left to future generations will be enthrallment under a being akin to a God. If they win, they pave the way for a peaceful galaxy. One the Stargazer would be proud to tell a story of.




Game Notes

•   The Mass Effect universe is open as a massive playground for everyone to explore. So basically it is a sandbox game with a plot, but not necessarily an ending.
•   This is story driven with tons of character interaction and a few well-known NPCs
•   The story will not have a Shepard mentioned or even in it. The Reapers do not and have not ever existed, and there is no Genophage either. This is only so that players who have not finished the games or playing through them can avoid as many spoilers as possible.
•   For the sake of keeping this game sexy and not vomit inducing….there will be certain races that I will not allow for main characters, such as; Volus, Vorcha, Elcor, Hanar, Yahg, etc
•   Despite no Shepard and no Reapers, other entities and organizations will still exist, for example The Shadow Broker (galactic information dealer), Cerberus (Extremist Human Advancement Group), etc...
•   I don’t trust anyone who has a Space Cow
This group game will take place in extreme for the sake of making this RP as real to the ME world as possible. HOWEVER this does not mean I will allow sick shit (imo) in the game. This goes for; vore, scat, bathroom play in general, snuff, death of characters without player consent and anything players don’t agree to beforehand.
•   Certain Canon's will be available for play and NPC's. You can view the list in the later posts which will be written up by Juggtacular. If you have any questions, please feel free to message either of us.




Rules

•      Please follow E’s Rules and I shall be a happy camper.
•   Your GM for this game will be me (la dame en noir). If you have any questions regarding this game and its format or any issues with any of the players, please contact me.
•   Backseat GMing will not be tolerated in this game. We appreciate and welcome feedback and suggestions, but anything beyond that will be swift kick in the rear.
•   All character profiles can be posted here, but must be PM’d for official approval. When PMing your character profile please label it as your character’s name.
•   Questions regarding this game can be posted here or pmed directly to me.
•   Drama is not allowed in the Interest thread or OOC. Disagreements and debates are welcome, but berating, nitpicking, or otherwise being very mean to any of the players will not be tolerated.
•   We are open to character and mission ideas. Just PM us a premise and we can see about working it into the game.  That way, they can make their own missions from time to time. Give the players a bit of interactive control.
•   This is a literate roleplay which means….I expect quality in everyone’s post. Please take the time to make at least 3 to 4 paragraphs a post, if it’s 1 paragraph or a few sentences, I will think that you’re not interested in the story or character development.
•   I do not expect everyone to post 10 times a day, 7 days a week. I do however expect players to put a little time and dedication into the roleplay. If you’re in a scene with someone, do not leave them hanging for weeks at a time. Please be courtesy and let us all know if you have to take time away and will be back. Real life happens, shit happens – I understand.

GM Profiles as an Example

Taevia Mortis - Asari Ardat-Yakshi by la dame en noir
Player Name: la dame en noir
Name: Taevia Mortis
Age: 400 years old – she is a matron
Race: Asari | Ardat-Yakshi
Gender: Physically Female, by human standards
Sexuality: Not something she can engage in, but she prefers those of the female variety.
Home Planet: Thessia

Appearance: Taevia stands at five feet eight inches in height. She is a curvaceous Asari, which many of her victims find most alluring about her. Her eyes are a steel blue and she has white dotted markings covering around her eyes and place over her scalp. Taevia prefers to wear dark clothing, sometimes leather and other garments which make her alluring to the eye. Appearances can fool a lot of people.

Affiliation: Herself, occasionally she dabbles with Aria.
Weapons: Acolyte]Heavy Pistol
Power: Singularity, Throw, and Shockwave

Background/Personality: Taevia Mortis was born as a pure blood Asari in a world where being pure blood was frowned upon. Growing up, Taevia did not understand why she got so much flak from society because of her background and her parents often kept things very vague for her. She was different from the other Asari, but she didn’t know why. She was teased relentlessly by other Asari children and often pushed herself away from most people when she was in their presence. She was strange, but highly intelligent – using her free time to study her biotic powers.

During her first part of her early stages as a matron, Taevia fell in love with a Quarian female she met during the girl’s pilgrimage. The Asari was attracted to her inability to ever be able to physically touch her for fear of sickness, but she loved the girl’s out-going personality and quick witted way of talking. Coming from Thessia, she had very little interaction with other alien species and found her to be quite intriguing.

Taevia discovered her condition through means that destroyed her from the inside out. When her lover finally agreed to be intimate with her, she killed her. Taevia did not know how or why, but there she was - lying dead in her arms after convulsing violently for thirty seconds. Frightened, she left her lover in hopes that someone else would find her and escaped immediately from Omega to Thessia to confront her parents. Once there, her parents explained that she was in fact an Ardat-Yakshi and when she is intimate with another, they will die on contact.

The news not only devastated Taevia, but shaped who she is now. She left Thessia after the attempt to keep her in a sanctuary and is now rogue throughout the terminus systems and currently resides in Omega. With news of the Thorian and its goal, she hopes to persuade it to help all bring Ardat-Yakshi peace and proper place in the universe. She will do anything and everything to achieve this goal.

Goal: Taevia has no real goal. She is simply evil because society has taught her to hate. The once loving and caring girl is now on a rampage to kill or be killed. She does not kill in massive quantities, but she picks her victims carefully. Taevia feels that the Thorian is the Ardat-Yakshi’s answer to a normal life and she will do anything and everything to help it achieve its goal.

Ons: She can’t be intimate with anyone – though there are these human inventions called Dildos. Taevia is an aggressive and dominant character. If she wanted to fuck someone without killing them(women only) she would use toys and would never kiss or touch them otherwise.
Offs: Nothing to put here, she won’t be fucking many people to begin with.

Other Information & Resources




As Mass Effect takes place just as much in the galaxy surrounding these worlds as the worlds themselves, having a means of transportation is extremely important. Can't stay stuck on Virmire your whole life now can you? There is a set ship class system in place in the Mass Effect universe; one which we will employ(with a bit of tweaking). However as the larger varieties of ship(Cruiser, Carrier, Dreadnought, etc...) are only for pitched battles and for higher ranked people, they're unnecessary aside from GM/NPC use.

Ship Classes

Fighter - A one person spacecraft designed for up close combat and skirmishes. These ships are small, fast, and extremely maneuverable. They lack heavy firepower and shielding, but more than make up for that with blinding speed and maneuverability. If properly outfitted, they can do some decent damage against Freighters and Frigates, although you'll rarely see a Fighter go in for the kill. (Think X-Wing)

Freighter - A larger craft that is not only highly customizable, but boasts incredible speed and combat capabilities. While much larger than a Fighter, a Freighter can still be fully operated by a single person. Some Freighters may even house a  fighter or two if their cargo hold is large enough. (Think Ebon Hawk)

Frigate - The same class of ship as the Normandy SR-1 and SR-2. These ships are the perfect balance of speed, maneuverability, and power for their size. Nobody may have a ship of a higher class than a Frigate, and we are only allowing 2 of these starting out, as these ships are fairly large and require a decent crew to function at full capacity.(30+) Your character will need a good reason to have a ship this size.

Beginner's Guide to the world of Mass Effect

This post was made by Juggtacular over a year ago and I'm going to keep it here for reference!

Hey everybody, I'm your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man co-GM, Juggtacular! And this list is essentially here to help those of you who like the concept and are interest in Mass Effect, but haven't played the trilogy or read the books or all of that other tedious stuff to really get the feel of how it works. So I've basically compiled some basic stuff to help you understand how things work better so the game and the posts read better.

For example, despite being the future, there are no such thing as "blaster rifles" like in Star Wars. Instead bullets the size of a grain of sand are shaved off of a block of metal within the gun and accelerated through micro mass effect fields like "hyper bullets". A paint chip accelerated with a large enough mass effect field can impact with the force of a nuclear weapon. Awesome right?! Well there's lots of stuff like that and my job is to help make it a bit more user friendly. I'll be giving descriptions, but will have links as well so you can go more in depth if you so choose. Here we go!


Mass Effect Fields: The game got it's name from the titular "Mass Effect" Field that essentially makes moving around the universe possible and a ton of other useful things. A mass effect field is generated when "Element Zero", or Eezo, a rare material is subjected to powerful electric currents. The reaction is the creation of "Dark Energy" which allows a Mass Effect field to be created. They're called Mass Effect fields as the mass of anything within the field can be affected by adding a positive or negative electrical charge. Positive current makes the mass increase, negative makes it decrease. [Mass Effect Field]

Element Zero: Element Zero, also known as "eezo", is a rare material that, when subjected to an electrical current, releases dark energy which can be manipulated into a mass effect field, raising or lowering the mass of all objects within that field. A positive current increases mass, a negative current decreases it. This "mass effect" is used in countless ways, from generating artificial gravity to manufacturing high-strength construction materials. It is most prominently used to enable faster-than-light space travel without causing time dilation. In it's dust form, exposure to eezo in utero can strengthen the chances of a child being born with Biotic capabilities. Although just as often, if not more so it has no effect or just results in cancer. [Eezo]

Weaponry: All firearms of all shapes and sizes in this day and age are powered by Mass Accelerators, leaving the archaic concept of gunpowder(and whatever methods non-human races used) and such a thing of the past. Put simply, the Mass Accelerator in a weapon(pistol or a ships main gun) uses a combination of electromagnetics to launch the projectile like a rail gun, and in conjunction with a mass effect field, said projectile can have it's mass reduced to allow for higher travel speeds which translates to much higher velocity. Ammunition is no longer a problem as thousands of rounds can be spat out from a single "ammo block", a cube of metal housed within the weapon that has a piece shaved off to serve as ammunition. However, this method causes extreme heat buildup, so "Thermal Clips" are used to absorb that heat, then ejected from the weapon so it can continue firing normally.[Mass Accelerator] / [Weapons]

Mass Relay: The Mass Relay's are those giant, mysterious monolith's just floating out in deep space. However each one is nearly indestructible(made from the same stuff as the Citadel), and makes travel through the many galaxies of the universe possible. Even at FTL(Faster-than-Light) speeds, going from one end of one galaxy to the other would take centuries, much less traveling to a different portion of the universe. The Relays bypass this limitation by creating a tunnel of sorts between two Relays. One that makes everything inside virtually free of mass. By reducing the mass of a ship to 0, it can reach speeds far beyond even FTL, which allows one to literally go from one corner of creation to the other in a matter of days at the most. [Mass Relay]

Kinetic Barriers: Called "shields" colloquially through the universe, Kinetic Barriers are in essence, mass effect fields generated around a person or thing through generators that cause most things launched by a mass accelerator to be deflected. Essentially it's a bulletproof shield for whatever you have it around. However a barrier can only take so much damage before being forcibly shut down and needing to recharge. [Kinetic Barrier]

Biotics: Biotics is the process an organic being creating naturally creating mass effect fields to effect the environment around them. It is also the title put on anyone who possesses the ability. i.e., "Dwayne is a biotic". While Asari are all naturally born with varying levels of Biotic power, every other race must be helped along by exposure to eezo while in utero. If successful the biotic will develop nodules throughout their nervous system that actually generate element zero, which in turn allows the person to manipulate that to fuel their biotic abilities by focusing the electric current generated from brain commands and releasing dark energy which is used to manipulate the environment. But for these abilities to actually be effective, biological amplifiers are surgically implanted throughout the body to increase the power generated. Again, as Asari are naturally biotic, they have no need for the bio-amps. [Biotics]

[Races] - This is a link that leads to information on every race and creature in the Mass Effect universe. Simply click on one to learn all you need to know about them.


Of course there's far more to expand upon, but I don't think I can handle making a list that'll end up being 4 pages long. So if you have any further questions, feel free to drop me a line!

While we love OC's, we also realize how tempting it is to play canons. Not all of them will be available due to reasons like running a planet, but a majority are open to be played.

NPC: Urdnot Wrex, Aria T'Loak, Liara T'Soni, Samara, The Shadow Broker, The Citadel Council, General Hackett

Playable: Kaiden Alenko, Miranda Lawson, Jacob Taylor, Kasumi Goto, Garrus Vakarian, Ashley Williams, Thane Krios, Kai Leng, , Subject "Jack" Zero(PM for info), Zaeed Massani, Mordin Solus, James Vega, Nihlus Kyrik, Saren Arterius, Tali'Zorah nar Rayya

NOTICE: These lists are not all encompassing. If you have any questions about a character not on this list, feel free to PM la dame or myself and we'll be happy to give you an answer on whether they're available to be picked up or not.


Announcement!!

There are a multitude of jobs available to your characters, however everybody can't be C-Sec or a Spectre, etc, etc... So we're implementing a limit on important job types for the time being.

Spectre: For the moment, we will be accepting a maximum amount of 4 Spectres, not including my character. Keep in mind that Council Races tend to get preferential treatment to be made Spectres. i.e. Human, Asari, Turian, or Salarian at the moment, and on a case by case basis we will look at any inquiries to make a non-council race a Spectre, like a Krogan, Quarian or Batarian.

Systems Alliance Officer: About 6 or 7 of these at most. This covers any position within the Alliance like "Pilot", "Soldier", "Medic", "Spec-Ops", etc...

Council Officer: This includes any job where you report in some way to the Council. C-Sec, Citadel Fleet, Salarian STG, Council Demilitarization Enforcement Mission(who work with Tuchanka's government to keep the checks and balances running that allows Krogan out into the galaxy), etc... About the same as the Alliance, so 6 or 7.

Cerberus: 5, maybe 6 Cerberus operatives will be allowed. Anyone Cerberus must be human. Remember they're pro-human to the point of near racism.

Geth: 3 at max for the moment(including Legion with some tweaking). Any playable Geth will be in the extreme minority as 99.9% of them remain behind the Perseus Veil to stay away from the organics who they feel will continue to attack them simply for existing. The remaining percent available to characters would be free thinkers who realize that organics fear AI for the potential they represent to replace them, but not all of them will attack on sight or try to obliterate them. They would be the few that have the courage to leave the veil so to speak.

All other positions like Mercenary, Freelancer, Hacker, Omega Gang Member, etc... are free to as many people that want them. If it's a specialized position like you want to report directly to Aria or something like that, feel free to PM la dame or myself with your proposal.

As the RP grows, the limits will of course be expanded upon to allow for more people.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

Definitely interested! I'll have a more fleshed out character concept posted here shortly... I have an idea for a Drell priestess who has left the temple to find her true place in the world before Kepral's syndrome.

Player name:writersmelody
Name: Fiyan Feal
Nickname: Fee
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Sexuality: Pansexual
Race: Drell
Homeworld: Kahje

Appearance: See Image

Job Title/Occupation: Medic/Translator/Interpreter- she is a medic and the Drell's eidetic memory means she is fluent in several languages of different species
Class Specialization:  Sentinel Medic
Affiliation: N/A

Weapons: Razer pistol
Powers: Throw
                          Barrier
                          Stasis
                          First Aid
                          Medicine

Personality: Fiyan is intelligent, even for a drell and has always been interested in the wider world, even if she was happy to serve the gods of her people. She was completely devoted to them. The gods used to speak to her or at least she believed they did. Since they stopped, she's felt a bit lost. She thought her place was to serve as their priestess. However, after being told by her gods that her place was not in the temple and her diagnosis of Kepral's syndrome, her faith is somewhat shaken. Was it the gods she was hearing? Or something else? Was it all in her head?

She is eager to have the chance to see and experience as much of the universe as she can during whatever time she has left. She picks up languages especially fast. There is so much pain and suffering in the world; her training as a priestess and a medic allow her to do something to alleviate it. That is what she is living for now. She hires herself out to different individuals or groups as a translator or a medic on various diplomatic or trader. She tries always to find the beauty in the people around her and wherever she is. She doesn't always succeed and she can be vicious when she perceives that someone has let her down. She has little patience for... anything really and tends to be quite blunt. She doesn't have time to waste. The hanar and other drell who embrace the old ways have her loyalty and support almost unquestioningly.


Background: Fiyan was born on Kahje. When her parents died of Kepral's syndrome in relatively short succession, with no other family to take her in, she was sent to the temple to serve the pantheon the drell worship. It is no wonder that she embraced the gods as much as she did. In the temple, she was educated. She was raised to be a servant of the gods and her people. She was content in her role.

She was especially interested in medicine and first aid. She showed quite a knack for it too. Eventually she started to venture out to different communities among the drell and hanar who needed the services of a medic. And as she grew, she started to hear what she believed to be the voice of the gods. Was it the gods? Or something else? She used to believe it was the gods, granting her insight and their favor. None of her patients ever died. Some of their recoveries were almost miraculous.

It was about a year ago when the gods told her that she needed to leave, to venture into the wider world. It was there she would find her place. But once she left, they went silent. For a time, it was good. She enjoyed traveling and offering herself as a translator/interpreter or medic allowed her to do some good. Then she started having some trouble catching her breath. The doctor confirmed her suspicions. She developed Kepral's syndrome. Her faith is shaken but not her desire to do as much as she could with whatever time she has left. She is going to make the most of it.

Ons: anything except "offs"
Offs: bathroom play, bestiality, vore/cannibalism

Connections: TBD?
Notes: (Anything that couldn’t be fit anywhere else you can put it here)

Universal translators make actual translators pretty redundant for the most part, just so you know.  Of course, it might help if the GMs didn't repeat their stuff in three different posts.  I'm just letting you know Dame that you repeated your ship list and some of your definitions a few times, but yeah, the universe has UI implants, but it's still a good idea to have a translator anyway because people still have to program and update the electronic dictionary for each language and its variations, but the common ones are pretty much mapped out.

I might join this game despite having a fairly large list already, but I might wait and see if we get anyone else first before throwing my hat into the ring.  I don't want to get my hopes up like last time and then get into the group only for nobody to really post anything.  I'm not blaming you or Jugg by any means, I'm just being cautious because this looks like it could be a lot of fun, and I'd rather not have my hopes dashed twice.

I'm going to say this flat out. If you're worried, don't join. It's not a big deal and I won't fault you for it. In fact, I'm still making edits and this game went well until I had some major life issues come up. I can't force people to post, but expect it from every player.

I also won't take kindly to anyone talking at me, which is what you're doing it. Drives me away from my idea and makes it hard for me to keep me interested in something I had already invested in. I'm the GM, Jugg is not apart of this anymore, he has his RL issues to deal with.

As for a repeated post, I already knew and I had already deleted it.

That is all.

Thanks for the headsup Vergil1989! I hadn't even considered that. You do have a point about them having to be updated and programmed too, though, so I hope we can still work with the concept. Maybe she also helps with some of that programming or adding to the dictionaries?

Yay! And feel free to play with the whole hearing her gods thing as much as you like. :D

Yeah, I really liked him too. Broke my heart. "Why did he say "her" in that prayer?" "Because the prayer was for you." </3 I almost romanced him in ME2 but Kaiden was my boo the whole way through. That also broke my heart...

Well, for official approval, I'll have you send it to me in a day or two. I have to get these threads revamped and posted and hopefully I'll have more interest by then! :D

As much as I like Jugg as a person, I'm honestly happy to hear he isn't a GM or even a player for this one truth be told Dame, but as for talking at you I'm sorry for starting out like that.  You didn't deserve that, but I also agree with your statement regarding what unfortunately happened during the Korra sandbox game.  So, if you'll still allow me to stick around, I'll try to get a character going tomorrow once I've gotten some sleep since it's pretty late on this end at the moment.  That's not why I came in a bit rough, since you I have no problem with in the slightest as a person or as a GM, although it doesn't excuse me regardless of who I was truly if understandably not a fan of when I saw his name in the first couple of posts even if he had a legitimate excuse.  Anyway, I'll shut up and let it go since it's done and over with.

Apology aside, you're welcome for the help there Melody and I hope I haven't soured the mood too much for anyone here.  As for Thane, I loved the guy as well, but if someone decides to use Kai Leng, and I'm accepted of course, chances are he'll be the first person I go after lol.  My usual go to pairing though was FemShep and Liara.  I love Garrus and Tali was always that cute sister type of character for me, but something about the asari archeologist turned Shadow Broker always felt right to me.

I'm in!

Heading into work, and I haven't had my coffee get so I may have missed this, are we allowed multiple characters at the start? Or should we keep it to one for now?

Have two or three Mass Effect CS's made up I like using, hoping to maybe use two of them, but understandable if I can only use one ^^;

I'm going to likely stick with an asari.  I have nothing against humans or anything, but I'll always have a fondness for the sexy blue aliens lol.  Besides, just because they're monogendered doesn't mean they can't have fun on occasion.  ;D  And Ace, pleasure to see you here buddy, it's been a long while.  I'll poke at this as the day progresses, but with this sinus headache I've been fighting for the better part of a week and going on a second, it might be a while.

Vergil1989
Name:  Alura D'Venus
Nickname: (if they have one)
Age:  126 years old, still young by asari standards
Gender:  'Female', but all asari are monogendered
Sexuality:  Bisexual but has a strong preference for women of almost any race, although not so much for other asari.  (Has a fondness for quarians, drell, and humans however, and not necessarily in that order.)
Race:  Asari
Homeworld:  Illium
Appearance: Alura's body is a perfect example of a life in service to the things she has devoted herself to.  Whether that passion and drive was geared towards her fifty plus years in the asari military, or her few years of dancing on a stage for credits and the lusts and passions of a crowd of partygoers, she gave it her all, and her densely packed, streamlined dancer's grace and musculature are evidence of this lifestyle.  Every movement is aa study in fluidic grace and elegance not often seen outside of the asari,  but Alura makes it look perfectly natural rather than forced as is sometimes the case.  A series of swirls and black lines are visible down her right arm, the right side of her face, partially across her lower neck and collarbone, around the right lower side of her flat stomach, and down her right thigh and around her sex that further accentuate her deadly if beautiful dancer's physique.  White tribal markings that follow the natural curves of her headcrest can also be seen on her smooth, almost purple skinned face with deep, sea blue eyes and a pair of soft lips that are used to smiling and laughing regularly when they aren't otherwise engaged, often with another woman from another species.

Typically, Alura tends to dress in a very relaxed fashion when she's not on a mission.  When she's not in her asari commando styled light armor leathers that are typically all black in her case, Alura favors human styled T-shirts that allow her to keep her midriff bare, along with sweaters, hoodies, even shorts and form fitting jeans although she also has a small collection of much more traditional asari robes and dresses, mixed in with a few stripper outfits and lingerie outfits from her brief stint as a dancer after she retired from active service.

Job Title/Occupation: Vanguard
Class Specialization:  (Shock Trooper)
Affiliation:  Asari Huntresses, loyal to the Citadel Council.

Weapons:  A pair of M-5 Phalanx pistols on her hips as well as a M-27 Scimitar she carries on her back.
Powers:  Shockwave
Charge
Warp
Assault Mastery
Barrier and its Specialization
Personality:  Alura knew what she wanted to be as soon as she could understand what it meant.  She grew up on stories about her grandmother and her asari commando friends, saving innocent people, freeing slaves, and destroying bad guys wherever they decided to rear their ugly heads, which unfortunately numbered mostly among the batarians and krogans more often than not during those days.  While the reality wasn't quite what Alura had expected at the time, she still kept that passion and drive to help people first and foremost, although she now understands the cost it often takes on a person's soul to go to war against pirates, slavers, and worse.  Despite having lost friends before she eventually retired from active duty, although she still takes the occasional mission from time to time, Alura still possesses a love and thrill for life and adventure, but it's tempered by her experiences in the Asari Huntresses.  And despite having seen the worst the galaxy has to offer, Alura has also seen the beauty of it and its many peoples, their strengths and creativity, their loves and their passions, which she has often even shared in since she's still a maiden at her core.

While she might not seem like an efficient killing machine on the surface with over thirty years of training and another twenty in service to the asari military, Alura's love for life is only matched by her discipline mind and surgical precision when the bullets start flying as she utterly dismantles anything that gets in the way of her allies or saving innocent bystanders.  She understands that sometimes the path to peace requires good people to do horrible things, and if she has to do those things so others can sleep peacefully, she'll get the job done to the best of her ability.  That doesn't mean she likes violence or death and destruction though, and she has endured her share of sleepless nights, but nothing so traumatic that a couple of drinks of light alcohol and some companionship with the fairer sex hasn't been able to fix...thus far at any rate.
Background:  Alura D'Venus was born on Illium before her asari parents moved out to the asari home world of Thessia to be closer to her matriarchal grandmother in her final years.  It was here, amidst the monolithic and ancient cities of her people steeped in its rich culture and beautiful pieces of art, music, and more, that Alura first learned about the years her grandmother spent as an asari commando, those most venerated and respected of warriors, right up there with the Justicars, among her people.  She quickly grew enraptured with all of her grandmother's stories of infiltrating pirate dens, of sabotaging illegal red sand factories, of freeing slaves from the batarians, and countless other stories that her grandmother didn't censor as much as her parents would have liked.  But Alura would come to appreciate the old woman's honesty and candor in her later years when she joined the Huntresses straight after her school years were over, despite her parents' efforts to persuade her to settle down, or at the least see the galaxy for a couple decades before devoting herself to such a life, but Alura wouldn't listen.  She had always known what she was going to do with her life, and she went after her dreams with both hands open.

Training was difficult but rewarding for the young maiden as she saw more of the galaxy than she might have otherwise been able to do on a dancer's salary.  And while she didn't get to enjoy life in quote the same way as her parents did while they had been maidens themselves, Alura still grew to love the various people she encountered throughout her years before and after she had finished training, which took a total of thirty years, and happily devoted the next twenty three years of her life to serving her fellow sisters in the Huntresses.  While the reality of military life was a little more gruesome and taxing on her spirit than her grandmother had warned her it would be, Alura hadn't gone in completely blind to the dangers or the costs either as she did her part in making the galaxy a little brighter despite every mission she had been a part of always ending in at least a dozen enemy kills before it was over.  A raid on a batarian slave den when she was 119 was her hardest and most difficult mission to date, it was also her last, since they knew they were coming.  Despite having been tipped off to their presence, her squad was still able to save most of the human, asari, krogan, and turian slaves they came across before it was over, but the cost had almost been too much for Alura because she ended up losing her best friend as well as her asari lover during the assault.  Not only that, but while she had seen the inside of a batarian slaver den before, these particular batarians had been far less kind to their 'property' than most she had seen up to that point.

She still has the occasional nightmare regarding the things she has seen and experienced during that time, but the past seven years has been enough to give her a chance to heal and come to terms with most of it.  That and meeting a drell by the name of Fiyan Feal during her travels, who's faith, while shaken because of her terminal disease, is still quite strong and a thing of beauty to behold in Alura's less than humble opinion.  While Alura isn't a strong believer in anything she can't see or touch herself, she has often talked at length about such topics with those that find comfort in the divine or the equivalent thereof, finding such conversations a window into exploring and understanding another person's culture and those things they hold dear to their hearts.  Besides, if it helps someone to face each day with confidence to believe in something, she isn't about to get in the way of them seeking such comfort and motivation to keep going.

Ons:  Gentle/sensual/sweet lovemaking, scalp and oil massages, being teased and caressed, blindfolds, omni-cuffs, light to medium bondage, scratching, heavy petting with or without clothes, strip teasing, and using her biotics in the bedroom or having the favor returned if her partner is similarly gifted.  (For the rest, check O/O page.)
Offs:  Watersports, scat, incest, non-con, blood play, indentured servants, extreme pain, gore, etc.  (See O/O page for more comprehensive list.)

Connections:  Fiyan Feal -To be discussed
Notes:  She understands and even accepts that indentured servitude is a good alternative to imprisonment for debts accrued that would need to be paid or as an alternative to community service, but what Alura has never really liked about the idea is how often more unscrupulous people have found ways to make it near complete slavery.  Given her experiences in hunting down batarian slavers, she realizes her opinion is likely biased, but she tends to avoid Illium as much as possible because otherwise she might be compelled to try and save any abused indentured servants she comes across.

Actual slaves are a given however.  She will always advocate their rescue first and foremost because she has seen enough suffering in the galaxy to last her a lifetime.  The complete eradication of slavery would go a long way to making the galaxy a better place, but until then, she has no problem whatsoever in hunting down known slavers anywhere in the galaxy.  She always checks the Wanted lists on every planet and space station she visits just in case she gets lucky, and if she happens to find one, she's perfectly fine with torturing then for information on the location of any allies they might have, the location of their base if she hasn't already found it, and anything else she'd deem necessary.

I'm not finished with my girl, but I have a decent start to her.  Just wanted to be sure what I did have was alright though before I got too far, but also to ask a question La Dame.  I had the thought that Alura was exposed to Thorian spores, but instead of seizing control of her mind and body, I was entertaining the idea it gave her a slight mutation instead, specifically the ability to grow a futa cock or make it disappear as she likes.  She'd still potentially be able to be completely overtaken by the Throian like anyone else, but I just thought it might be fun to make her be the odd one in some small but potentially very fun way, but if you'd rather I didn't I'll just stick to a regular asari.

Sorry for the double post, just wanted to let you guys know though that beyond having my question answered and finishing up talks with Melody about connecting her and Fiyan together, Alura is pretty much done beyond any edits our lovely GM might require of me.  I need to head out for a bit to get a shower and stuff, but I'll be back soon.
