BakemonoShiki [Recruitment]-Slots Open-

--★-- Bakemono Shiki --★--
--------------------------------------                    Introduction
     Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at Bakemono Shiki.
To summarize the information of the group, this GRP is about a group of characters who have the ability to make a contract with powerful creatures from another world. The characters (Occultists) are employed by the government to fight another group of shady creatures that come out at night. And in exchange are provided with accommodation, food, and a 'small' allowance. I’ll also be allowing people to play the powerful creatures if that’s more your thing. While there are some dark themes in this roleplay, I’m hoping for it to be pretty light-hearted and slice-of-lifey. With the focus being more on the relationship between an Occultist and their Shiki, rather than the fighting monster part.

"Most of you will probably recognize this is based a fair bit from various animes; including but not limited to SMT:Persona, and the FATE series. But knowing the series won’t be very useful since I’ll be taking certain liberties..... and I don’t have a thorough understanding of the concepts I’ve stolen in a canon way myself xD" - Leki

As a note this game was originally created by the user Leki, who has given permission for me to reboot it so that the players can enjoy the setting. Everything for this game was originally created by him, and I hope I can do him honor in how I run this game.

If you are interested in joining this game you are welcome to post your Profiles to the thread here, but also please PM it to SweetSerenade and Avalon29. This way I can look over and ask for any adjustments needed before your character can be posted to the Information Thread.


OOC Rules & Game related rules:
1.)   All rules that apply on E apply in this game. This means all rules about civility, respect, and the like will be followed. While E has a rule where you are allowed to play characters as young as 16 the Staff of BMS are setting a hard rule that all characters must be 18. Furthermore, they need to be mentally, and physically 18 in appearance and actions. All character images used need to be thoroughly checked to make sure that the image isn’t based on an underage canon character. You will be asked to change your picture if we feel it looks too young.
2.)   At this time, we are not accepting any characters other than male and female (of the Occultist and Shiki variety).
3.)    Characters can be of any sexuality they desire, but please be aware that BMS is not intended to be a sex focused game, please keep this in mind with your interactions. BMS is intended as a Slice of Life – with some darker themes, where the characters expand and grow within their world.
4.)   All players are allowed a max of 3 characters, for the moment. Players are allowed to start with one character, and after activity with the first they may apply to make a second character. Please make sure to keep all characters active, or you may be asked to remove one from play before you can make any others.
5.)   Occultist characters are allowed to have a max of two shiki at the start, we would prefer if you. Shiki are allowed one occultist, after a week of IC time you can ask about getting a second occultist if you have shown adequate bonding with your current occultist - This is a rule to limit a shiki advancing in level too fast – thus pushing us towards higher enemies before the characters are ready.
6.)   You are only allowed to put a max of 2 sigils into a shiki at any given time. Occultists are required to keep 1 sigil at all times. This is both an OOC rule and an IC rule – to make sure there is one ‘command’ sigil available if there is an emergency.
7.)    There is a minimum requirement of 1 post a week, IC, the Staff of BMS understands that real life comes first so if you are going to be absent for longer than 72 hours please tell us! (Note: Your one post a week is required to be a non-sexual post in a normal story situation, you cannot use sexual interactions or Character communication posts to count as your one post a week minimum.)
8.)   Posting Rate & Size– You are required to wait for at least 3 posts between your own (for a singular character), in the instance of people in scenes with multiple people, and someone is holding others up from posting – wait 72 hours from when that persons ‘turn’ has come up – and skip them. Players that are skipped can return easily whenever they are able to post. We also require at least 1 paragraph, of a decent size, per post so that we can maintain a certain level of quality. (This does not apply in the Communications thread, so things like texts and the like don’t need to follow this rule.)
9.)   If you want help with character creation, making plots, or advancing options for your character – please talk to us as we are here to help and would love to help you.
10.)    Any player plots that can impact more than 3 characters need to be discussed with the staff, just to make sure that it won’t interfere with anything already planned in the game, as well as make sure it holds the theme of the game in mind.
11.)    The most important one of all… Have fun, if you aren’t having fun – talk to us, the staff are always here to listen, and we will work hard to help you.

Current Focus Topic
Entire Game is unlocked for play! We are currently preparing for playing for the first IC week which will last at least a month IRL time.

     Q&A
Q: How long has the Dark Hour existed for?
A: As far as people know, the Dark Hour has always existed, but it's only in the last 10 years that it's been known by a government agency. Small pockets of various spiritual organizations have been aware of it for centuries though.

Q: Occulist vs Spiritual Mediums?
A: Please note that an Occultist refers specifically to high-prana, contracting with Shiki characters. A monk who has gone through intensive training, or a priest blessed by a god is not an Occultist, but may still be active during the Dark Hour.

Q: How will we be starting?
A: The roleplay will start on the evening of a New Moon. The Occultists will be brought together, and tasked with finding themselves a Shiki in and around Revius City. In order to assist with Occultists finding their ideal Shiki, the government agency (TENMA) will be burning Prana-Incense... at the local shrine. All unbound Shiki are in a state of starvation, and Prana is an essential source of energy for them... so think of it as a delicious aroma wafting over when you're on an empty stomach.

Q: How does an Occultist and Shiki form a Bond?
A: The Occultist must have enough Sigils, and both the Shiki and Occultist must consent to the bond. How they affirm their bond is entirely up to each individual. Whether it be a simple handshake, a verbal agreement, or a quick romp in the bushes. Once the bond is agreed upon the Sigils will disappear. The Ingesting requirement will take effect after 24 hours.

Q: How much does an Occultist (Character) know?
A: Pretty much all the information here would have been provided to them at some point prior to the start of the roleplay. Whether they remember or not is up to each individual player to decide.

Q: What happens when someone becomes an Occultist?
A: When a human awakens their prana at 18, they are collected by TENMA and brought to one of their facilities. All contact with the life they knew is removed, and then they are passed to different cities/facilities as they try to bond to a Shiki. For those resistant to bonding - it is basically like being in Prison, the very basic of their needs provided for till they agree to work for TENMA. Upon agreeing to work for Tenma they are given all the necessities of life, as they travel from city to city seeking a Shiki to bond with.

Q: How Occultists are Treated till they Agree to work with TENMA -
A: Occultists who refuse to work with TENMA, and are resistant to being put out to bond with Shiki are kept essentially as prisoners in a sense, because they are a risk to the secret that TENMA is keeping from a large majority of the world. Any characters held by TENMA would spend most of their time in their own room, with little to do other than read books and stare a blank walls. Their needs are taken care of exceptionally well though, with literature provided that is to their liking (unless they are violent and then they get nothing). Their room has it’s own rather comfortable bed, a bathroom with materials for their needs, and they are given food that is probably better than most people would see.

While they are violent and resistant they are not allowed to meet anyone. They are allowed out of their room for an hour each day to go to a training room to exercise if they like, but there is never anyone else there but one of the Trainers. The only exception is when they are put out once a month during the Prana-Incense events to try to bond to a Shiki. If the Occultist is still resistant to even that, they are often kept locked up till they comply.

Q: How you are treated when you work for TENMA -
A: Shortly after accepting the work of going out for bonding to Shikis an Occultist will find their situation changing significantly. They are moved into a more comfortable room, or allowed to keep theirs and decorate as they wish. All operatives, Occultists, of TENMA are given a personal credit card for the ‘company’. This has their monthly allowance on it, and it generally is a decent amount of money. Enough for needs and extras, and they even help cover ‘extras’ if you are extra giving in how you work for them.

Occultists not bonded to shiki are allowed to pick up work within TENMA – but only in the regards of anything they are already skilled in. (Makoto has done work as a personal trainer to help get some recruits in better shape, as an example.) An Occultist with Goals that do not put them in the direct public eye (Like Noel’s wish to return to being an Idol) will be given access to anything they need. You want to build cars? TENMA has you covered. You want to go to college? Talk to Damian and he’ll help you get everything going. TENMA will even help people who haven’t finished their educational goals and help them reach them (Look at Lili they are giving her a full ride for a PhD!).

You are allowed out and about, based on how behaved you are, during the day, with the strict understanding that you are to return before nightfall to prepare for the Dark Hour. For the Occultists very new to the City they are kept in a Hotel nearby, or in a cheap apartment (once again nearby), under guard (though they may not know it). The more resistant an Occultist was before accepting, the more carefully TENMA watches you.

They give you enough to hang yourself with if you are trying to trick them.

Q: What about Jobs while working with TENMA?
A: People are given in company jobs, or they work at the centers where they have their ‘base’. This games ‘base’ (with the Dorms in the buildings surrounding the Café). Most of the Occultists will work in the Café or the ‘Night Club’ we will end up setting up through game play. They are willing to allow day time part time jobs that help keep you happy, but will not allow anything that interferes with your ability to participate in the Dark Hour.

Q: How moving Occultists from City to City Works
A: Occultists who have been in TENMA for awhile, but have not bonded to a Shiki (whether resistant or accepting of their position) are generally moved around the world to a variety of locations that TENMA has. This happens every 3-6 months. Generally they never go to a city that is close to where TENMA found them.

Q:How gaining power works for Shiki, and how you can adjust your powers to maximize their potentials.
A: A Shiki that comes to Earth from their world is stripped down to base power, this has been the standard for the last 15 years or so. No one knows why, it’s just how it happened. Any Shiki that did not experience a power drop from an accident of some kind (or whatever in their history) prior to this event would find themselves stripped of their power the moment they stepped on Earth.

This gives a Shiki access to their Base Power, and then the moment they bond to an Occultist they gain one more Power. Their next power gains are not till 4, 7, and 9. So plan your shiki powers accordingly using the sliding scale of what a Shiki can do at each power level. So what does this mean for the base powers? Admins will allow players to adjust powers (with GM permission and review only!) of their Shiki to ‘power up’ the abilities they have, while waiting for new ones to unlock. You can’t retroactively just suddenly power up a bunch of abilities, it sort of just happens naturally and players will need to contact Gms on how they want to adjust their power.

Q: Posting size minimum?
A: GMs have decided that the minimum allowed post size will be One meaty paragraph of text, think 5-10 Sentences or So. Something substantial for players to work off of.

Q:Posting Lock Procedures (What will we do if someone ends up post locking a group due to their inability to post within x amount of time.)
The GM team has decided that we will let posting order happen based on who posts in the thread at what time. When a player has not alerted the group that they will be late in posting, there will be a mandatory 72 hour wait period that you will need to satisfy when it’s your turn. If Player A posts and Player C has to wait for Player B – but Player B says nothing about being unable to post – Player C is allowed to skip player B after 72 hours has passed. Given how many people may be within threads at any given time, you won’t have to worry too much about it being your turn very quickly – though we do have a rule that you have to post at least 2+ a week(without alerting the GM team.).

This is to prevent Post lock. If you are ‘skipped’ you are allowed to post as soon as you can, and that is your new place in the posting order. Keep track of who you posted right after in your scene, and make sure that’s what you do when it comes around again!


Q: What happens to an Occultist after bonding to a Shiki and working with TENMA?
Those that have Shiki are given extra funds, and allowed more freedom. As long as the Occultist and Shiki arrive in time for Dark Hour, or whatever work shifts they are doing, the organization doesn’t usually care. (Also make sure to check in with Damian on your Company Cellphone, he is such a worry wart! ~ Azzy)

Q: How long has TENMA been around, what about the situation with Prana and Shiki?
A: TENMA was founded roughly about 10 years ago, which is quite awhile for humans but not long for Shiki. As a note, SHIKI and Occultist sorts of bonds have been in existence for no longer than 15 years, before that a Shiki basically just spent time around humans or made ‘pacts’ that were different. They didn’t gain power the same way, and it didn’t work quite the same way. The last 15 years, no one knows why, but Shiki have been unable to do more than just get small ‘sips’ of Prana in the human world. This means that the Occultists are their buffet and it heightens the Shiki desire to bond with humans to find out what’s going on.

Shiki don’t generally like being in the public eye anyways, which is why they use the base skill all Shiki have (It’s a freebie!) that allows them to be invisible to everyone.

Q: What restrictions are there on Shiki bonding to humans/vice versa?
A: At the start of the game, till GMs say (Minimum of a Week In Game time passing), Shiki will only be allowed to bond to ONE Human. So, choose wisely, and make sure you are happy with your choice, because if you break the bond we will not allow you to rebond to a human till at least a week of in game time has started. This is to prevent ‘sigil farming’(Using humans as prana batteries by making several bonds rapidly), and GMs will remove power from Shiki that attempt this.

At initial bonding an Occultist can only spend a max of two sigils per shiki, and Gm (and TENMA) mandate that at least one sigil be withheld for emergency situations. So, keep this in mind when bonding Shiki. After the initial week or so of game time has passed, players are allowed to ask GMs about adding more Sigils to their Shiki (if you have gained enough more to do so.)

Q: Regaining Sigils?
A: Sigils can be regained through building up bonds of friendship or intimacy with Shiki. Up to three per each shiki. GMs will tell you when you have regained a Sigil, when we feel there is sufficient in character interactions to show a sigil gain. Just having sex with a Shiki does not warrant the intimacy needed to regain 3 sigils, there will be other developments we look for. As such, powering up shiki might take a little bit of time, but be worth it in the long run! Work on your bonds and friendships! Have fun, do crazy things! Become closer as a team. The Gms might randomly surprise you!

Q: Humans fighting Shiki?
A: So this is simple, a normal human can do minimal damage to a Shadow - it'll be annoying to the Lvl 1s, and more like gnat swats to Lv 2 Shadows, don't even attempt to try to fight a Level 3 on your own. You'll get Akira'd. We really aren't joking on that. Now human weapons can deter shadows, in an attempt to get them away, scare them off. Do not attempt to use guns on shadows over lvl 1. It does nothing. Shadows that are level 1 can have minimal damage from guns, but your best to fight a Shadow is a Shiki.

Q: How does the Prana-Incense Ritual work?
A: The Prana-Incense ritual is simple, at the local Temples there will be placed a prana concentrated incense that will surround the local areas with ambient Prana Scents. This will attract the hungry shiki towards the scent. Imagine your most delicious possible meal - wafting into your senses - and instantly having your mouth water. This will draw the Shiki into the City in the locations that TENMA wants them, and gives the Occultists a chance to interact with Shiki. Most shiki at this point know they need an Occultist to get more Prana while on Earth.

Just feel free to post your profiles in the information section, if you had already posted them in the old one. This way the new information section is up to date. By thursday of next week I will be poking the original members (minus Melody if he has started his move) about whether they are continuing with us. This way I can keep the table at the top of the information thread up to date. I have been editing in your character profile links - as we go. xD

Well view my character, and see if yours can be a different spin on things. I'm not saying no, I'm just saying that the characters need to have uniqueness in some way, so take a look and see what you can do to make your Angel different than mine?

If it matters, what you could do is use keywords denoting the two most prominent aspects of your characters personality, and make a mental note of the other aspects. I think a few of us wish we could have listed more but it also isn't a major deal-breaker, since I feel like a personality can slowly change over the course of a game unless a character heavily resists change or had hard-to-break habits. o=

While my post was entirely eaten, there is a positive. I was able to remake it! I sent it to the gm too. Since she said it was okay to post it here I am doing that as well. Without further ado, here she is!




Name: Avariael Sentili
Player: Miss Eleanora
Age: 1272
Height: 6'4
Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Golden
World:  Charon
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
Dutiful: To Avariael duty is critical and one must always honor one's word and fulfill one's obligations. To willingly fail to do so is something as foreign to her as a shark attempting to breath air rather than water. She will keep her word, accomplish her goals, and perform as she has promised even if it kills her and/or others in the process. She has a tendency to see the world in a very black and white fashion where there are two kinds of people and two kinds of actions. You are either the type of person who keeps your word and performs your duty, or you are the kind that fails to do so. And actions are either those that go along with fulfilling your duties or those that fail to do so. While Avariael can understand, with difficulty and personal discomfort due to her own failures, that sometimes you fail despite trying with all your might to accomplish your tasks, she has no tolerance and nigh bottomless scorn for those who deliberately make a choice to betray their duty or to shirk from it.

Devoted: Avariael is extremely committed and loyal to a cause or an individual once she has committed to it or them. She does not easily abandon anything and it is exceedingly difficult to make her relinquish her grip on something she has pledged herself to and or bonded with. Even more than those that shirk their duties Avariael cannot stand those who would betray those they have pledged themselves too. Because of her extreme devotion she can at times exhibit traits that one could describe as clingy. At the same time, should she have pledged herself to a cause or an individual she would gladly throw herself in the way of a blow that was certain to be fatal if it gave the person or cause a chance of survival or success.

Shiki Background
History Avariael has faint memories of her childhood on Charon, she can remember her family, her parents, the beauty of her home realm, but by this point those memories have begun to become rather faded and worn through the sheer length of time that has passed. She remembers the lessons they taught her, about the importance of duty and diligence, of her family's purpose to protect and fight against the forces of wickedness, but the nuances and details of the actual experiences have now begun to fade. She was barely more than a youth when she was summoned forth, brought from her homeland to a different realm, the realm of Earth.

Her first sight upon her arrival in earth was a grand one. She bore witness to one of the most potently beautiful sights that humanity could offer. Her golden eyes beheld a grand temple. Upon the walls were glorious mosaics depicted scenes and figures from human Christian scriptures. Before her stood a man garbed in resplendent attire, attire that almost seemed like it would have been fitting back in her home. This man spoke to her in reverential tones of awe and beseeched her to aid his people. They were under threat, vile hordes of wicked infidels sought to destroy them, to rip down all they had built and slaughter the faithful. Avariael was young, and to her in that moment it sounded as if she had found her calling. There was nothing more noble than to aid and protect those who were beset by the forces of wickedness.

In that moment the young angel formed her first bond upon the earth. Exactly how the faith and connection with the priests sustained her she did not know, and she truly did not care, for she had found her purpose. At the behest of the priests she would be sent forth to aid the faithful in their struggles, to perform what miracles she could, to rally the faithful. For nearly 400 years she would serve in such a capacity, serving through successive generations of holy men who would send her forth. She bore witness to some of the best that humanity had to offer, conviction and devotion to a holy and honorable cause. It was during this time that she was granted the great sword modeled after an ornate cross that she still wields to this day.

Unfortunately her time there would eventually end and in a way that showed to her the darkness that also lurked within humanity. For she bore witness to betrayal at the hands of those she had been lead to believe were the allies of the people who she served. Traitors who sacked the holy city that she had defended for hundreds of years. When she attempted to intervene on their behalf the traitors sealed her away, confining her within a statue that they then carried away as one of the many trophies of their conquest and betrayal.

Within this stony prison she languished for 816 years until through a chance occurrence of fate and an action of a clumsy human she was set free. Her power had dwindled in her long confinement, but in that moment Avariael did not care. She was free, she would return to those she had sworn to defend. But upon her return to the site of the holy city that she had defended she found that it had fallen long ago. That those she had defended against had taken it and remade it. There was no order of priests waiting for her return, there would be no bestowal of power, no resumption of her purpose. In that moment something broke within her.

Since that time she had been wandering, her reserves of prana dwindling down to nearly nothing. Until now when the scents draw her like a moth to flame as young occultists seek to discover and bond with their shiki.

(Note: She was summoned by Byzantine priests during the period of the initial rise of Islam when the empire was under imminent threat. She was sealed away during the sack of Constantinople in 1204. Just to make it clear what I was referencing.)

Perception of Humanity Honestly Avariael does not quite know what to make of humanity. They are beings who at once can be extremely devoted and committed, who can perform great feats for noble causes, and she once worked with many who were like that. But at the same time she has witnessed their capacity to betray, to violate their sacred bonds and to turn on each other. Humanity confuses her. She knows very little about occultists but the concept of a noble and devoted ally who would be her partner in a struggle against the wicked forces is something that would be very appealing to her.

(Default Power) Hallowed Warrior- Avariael can channel her power to increase her strength and durability even beyond that of other shiki. However the extent to which she can do so is quite limited at this point.

(Additional Power) Enhanced Hallowed Warrior- Avariael can channel her power more effectively and her base state's strength and durability increase as well. She can begin to channel energy through her sword at this point.

(Additional Power)

(Additional Power)

(Additional Power)

Other Points of Interest:
- Avariael can fly, her long experience in this world making her comfortable even with the differences in the air.
- Avariael has four wings, and is fully developed for her kind.
- She is bitter, dejected, and confused at this point. This world is not what it was before she was sealed away, and those who she had forged bonds of companionship with are long gone.
- She has decided that cars and other motorized vehicles are truly vile inventions, and is still not entirely sure they are not monsters that devour men.

Hello Sweety! And Hello Starcry as well! Nice to see you both posing interest. Well you can feel free to chat with me about it, we can figure out which world works most comfortably, my Idea of vampires might be different, but who knows. Personally, I can see Vampires coming from many places - based on the kind of vampire they are. Shikigami is something that makes me giggle (Sorry huge Inuyasha Juso no Kamen Fan!) - and we can probably figure something out.

So happy to see so many interested faces!

Male Shiki are welcome, it'd balance us out to the females we have.

I'm thinking of capping Male and Female Occultists at 5 of each. This way we have a good mix. We are more than welcome to have more Shiki than human, as it means we can create some interesting team dynamics with what Shiki choose to bond to which humans.

Hmmm... I think the only thing I have left to worry about is my post rate since I can be pretty slow at times. <.<;;

Also random question:

Would it be ok if the shiki I have in mind has a habit of attracting foxes/fox spirits?

Nope, Surplus of Shiki to Occultist is fine. Even if we cap out humans at 5(may go up to 7 at most) each gender. This is mostly because even if we have a surplus of Shiki, the chances of a human getting more than one shiki - is pretty high. It'd be easier for Shiki to keep track of one human for their daily connection building - versus a shiki having to reaffirm their bond with multiple humans in one day. If you don't reaffirm the bond, the power starts to lower and the connection is broken.

Having more Shiki than humans is fine, because the ones who will do the fighting (When we do the fighting in Dark Hour) - will be done by the Shiki. Humans can do very little against Shadows, without a Shiki's help.

The Shiki to Occultist ratio was never meant to be a 1 to 1, it has looked like - and worked better - for there to be a 2 to 1(at least) ratio. Since the focus of the game isn't about pairing up romantically, but slice of life daily interactions and during the Dark hour fighting the Shadows - having more Shiki than humans isn't really an issue.

Plus the opening of the game is the organization of TENMA using a special incense to draw Shikis into the city - during the full moon - so that they can get their Occultists bonded. There is more than definitely going to be more Shiki than human.

Our character balances seems to be evening out, so feel free to make any gender you like - but hold off on more female Shiki for the current moment. xD

As a note the only reason I'm considering character caps, is I need to be able to maintain the game and keep track of everything/everyone. As it stands I've only had one potential Co-GM and even if/when I pick a Co-Gm there is a limit to what me and one other person can maintain. If the game is going to continue to get larger with the number of players, I'm going to need more help in order to maintain everything.

Of those numbers, 3 are male Occultists and 3 are male Shikis. Of the females, 2 are female Occultists and 6 are female Shikis.

For starters, welcome Changing and clockwork! We have about 3 characters from Veskra (two females and one male). Neither are vampire types but one definitely does have a carnivorous disposition...

You potentially may be able to! Much like how I'm sure a fallen angel of sorts can easily be from Veskra depending on their lineage and such. =p Play around with things and see how they work!

Yep, just abouts! As SS said, no real caps on the world's Shikis come from, so feel free to pick any of the three and design your character~ Hearing you have three ideas is definitely inspiring!

Gender is also balancing slowly so it looks like maybe soon, female characters may also be accepted again, but for now keep working with the idea we need a few more guys!

Currently we have 6 female Shiki, followed by 5 male Occultists, followed by 3 male Shikis, and finally 2 female Occultists as our currently working numbers, discounting any of the current interest.

I might have submitted myself as Co-GM if I wasn't worried I'd do such a garbage job at it. =/ I tried it once before and I didn't feel too effective at the job. But I do want to see things take off here...

Announcement

Currently still accepting Co-GM applications. Gardsorm is the first Co-Gm I have accepted, and Vo is very close to being the second. I will be taking at least two Co-Gms, with Gardsorm added as a Co-Gm I will raise the character caps to 7 of each gender for humans, and 9 of each for Shiki. Even when I get my secondary Co-Gm I may not raise the character cap, considering we will need to establish the game and get going with things.

So I have some character concepts - rather than typing them all out, I just figured i'd give a brief idea here and see if any seem particularly interesting at large - so I can gauge whether ornot they'd be a good fit at large.

Veskran Knight (Alternate appearance:Here: A loyal warrior, he acts in spite of the barbaric and duplicitous nature of his home, and will fight in the name of whoever commands him. Keywords are Loyalty and Valor.

Errure Pugilist: Brash, confident, and seeking to improve himself, he's a tad more playful and easygoing, but would see every fight as a challenge to do his absolute best in, as well as learning more about the people who summoned him. Key words are Confidence and Headstrong.

Those are the two I had the most fleshed out. I  had a third one, but felt it would be too similar to another character in the game so I don't desire to step on toes.

Veskran Knight looks pretty damn fun, especially since I have a second character being held back that wouldn't mind crossing swords with him when the time comes! I love the idea of Noble Demons.

Errure Pugulist looks pretty kickass too, not gonna lie, but for some reason I like the former idea a bit more. xD

Okay, because of my unintended upgrade, I guess I get to post this guy too. May need some edits...




Name: Gabriel Winters
Player: Gardsorm
Age: 1322y
Height: 6'1
Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Light-blue
World: // Charon
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
Steadfast: His brother is the lively and outgoing one, the party animal of the family. Gabriel, however, is a focused and seemingly no-nonsense Charonian who remains dutiful in his duties even after being demoted from the rank of Divine High Executor. He feels he must always do the best he can at all things, no matter how menial the task, and believes that if his work reflects his ethic, he may earn his way back to his desired rank.
Restless: Unfortunately for him, such an occurences has not happened, and it makes him increasingly anxious. He truly believes that everything he does is important in some way, but the work the higher divinities has him doing is boring! He misses joining incursions beyond the Charonian Gates to travel beyond into Vreskian territory to engage the foul beings and ensured they remained on their desolate aide where they belonged. Unfortunately, his present state of affairs have shown him that literally anything else, even consorting with the enemy, was more enjoyable than being a glorified book keeper.

Shiki Background
History Gabriel hails from the Winters family in Charon, a once-esteemed legacy of angels destined to be some of Charons' greatest warriors of divinity. However, that legacy has slowly withered away with the latest of the family: Gabriel Winters, who struggles to remain true to the family legacy and bring its good name back to the highest of divinities... Raphael Winters, who has long since tasted the enjoyment of humanity and has continuously fallen ever further to the point of secret trysts with a Vreskian demoness... And finally Leliel 'Leslie' Winters, who goes off to flirt with a pair of Errunite brothers almost religiously. Gabriel has resigned himself to being the sole inheritor of the family legacy, but his goals are often dashed by either of his two siblings, who almost without fail always manage to drag Gabriel into their messes. The discovery of Raphael's tryst and the fact that Gabriel attempted to cover for him saw the middle-aged sibling stripped of his greatest enjoyment.

The Divine High Executors were a force of the most critically-acclaimed divine beings of Charon, and among one of the groups most likely to be seen at the forefront of any battle involving Vreskra. To serve with them or alongside them was among the highest of honors, and yet Gabriel had been demoted from the rank of Divine High Executor to be Divine Record Keeper, which could only be described as being a glorified librarian, as well as having his cherished weapons sealed until he could regain his divine right. Hundreds of years of performing this insanely mundane task has driven Gabriel insane with boredom, and so when the opportunity to send envoys to Earth arose, Gabriel swiftly leapt at the offer.

Thus far it has only been a few days since Gabriel traveled to Earth and already it was infinitely more exciting. However, he discovered his powers were woefully depleted... Furthermore, being discovered by a law enforcement force that seemed to know exactly what he was, he was brought in by them with no hope of him escaping. He was told he could regain his power if he could work with Occultists, and while this prospect sounded good to him, he had no idea it would bring him in contact with his worst enemy... Nor what was in store for him from then on.

Perception of Humanity

Humans: They appear to be such frail things. They fight meaningless wars for the most meaningless things, and yet they have infinite potential that goes untapped by them because they cannot see last their faults. Gabriel acknowledges they need helping hands but also realizes that their lives should not be interfered with too heavily, as it would mean Veskrians could potentially do the same, leading to a tipping of the balance.

Occultists: These humans are a bit more heretical than he's comfortable with, but they may also possess the key to help guide the future of the world if they use their resources properly. This could be a double edged sword, however, as he's seen them consorting with Veskrians as well... Much like his errant brother, perhaps to the same degrees. He is not his brother so he does not share the same likeness of Veskrians he does, but for the sake of the humans he'll stay his dislike.

Default Power: Frost Manipulation // Unlike his brother, Gabriel's power lies in frost control, able to chill the atmosphere when he pleases. However, with the loss of his power from his demotion, and further since coming to earth, the best he can manage is being a mobile air conditioner or drink chiller. He does also have the ability to deliver chilling blows, however...

(Additional Power) //Your character can unlock one new power/ability up until level 4. So any additional powers your character may have. You can leave these slots blank as well until they become relevant.

(Additional Power)

(Additional Power)

(Additional Power)

Other Points of Interest:
- Possesses six wings, though the lowest two and highest two are often used to make a makeshift cloak of sorts.
- He has a trio of Swords, all of which are permanently sealed until he can regain higher levels of power.
- Despite his swords being sealed, he's still apt to use the sheathed weapons as weapons themselves.
- He has nothing but love for his siblings, but also understands that they truly test his patience and bring him nothing but trouble.
- He gets awkward dealing with the fairer sex in out-of-combat scenarios.
- As you can probably guess, the poor guy is a virgin, and despite the fact he's read up on things from his stint as a glorified librarian, he hasn't really been looking for fear he'll turn out like his siblings.
- He is a deep closet voyeur, after discovering that not all of the divinities in Charon are as pure as they make themselves out to be...

Provided a person is older than just 18, say 22, what would they've been doing up until the point where the game start? Could they be imprisoned for a while, but change their mind down the line or is choosing imprisonment a one-way track? Could they manage on their own for those four years undetected from the government?

There is no way to go undetected. They would have been picked up and shipped around to different centers every 3-6 months in an attempt to get them to bond to shiki. They could have previously had a shiki bond, but it was severed for whatever reason - they would need to have something in their history that explains how they rebuilt their used Sigils, but we are completely ok with older characters. TENMA picks up all Prana bursts that occur when majority is reached, and those people disappear.

Alright, there we go.










Name: Tomo Hashimoto
Player: Sain
Age: 18
Height: 5’5
Hair Color: Purple with yellow stripes (black underneath)
Eye Color: Light Brown
World: Earth (Occultist)
Sexuality: Either

Personality
Passionate: The drive Tomo has to pursue what he sets his mind to is uncommon for his age. While his desires and goals may often seem trifle and fleeting the motivation and sheer energy he puts in achieving those is anything but. It’s perhaps the manliest feature for such otherwise feminine youth. This drive does not rob him of his fears, but helps him stand behind his convictions even against critique and threat that might make most step down. There’s also an aspect of naive curiosity in his goal oriented bursts: Smiles and eager explanations that might drag someone else to join Tomo in his pursuit. However, there’s also a side of a passionate Tomo that will get his emotions over a boiling point and boil and get into arguments.

Confrontative: Tomo is all about getting right in your face. He clothes, pierces, dyes, and tattoos himself in an eye grabbing manner to make sure nobody is going to miss him. He walks with a confident swagger and talks with a tone touch too bold for someone of his frame. Tomo is going to say straight what he thinks, especially if he thinks it’ll get a reaction. At times this side of him goes well onto the side of agitating others just because, and indeed Tomo may seem like bit of a bully for shyer individuals. It’s part of being a brash youth that he sometimes (read very very often) miscalculates and misreads situations, ending up challenging authorities that he really shouldn’t.

Human Background
Social Status Tomo didn’t have the toughest time growing up. Even for a lower middle class family the life in Revius city isn’t that bad. However as a middle child of a family of seven Tomo never really got much attention. And it boy did it begin to show… First hair was yellow. Then punk rock made dad yell his lungs empty on Tomo. Then Hair was pink and he had brought home girl and a boy night before big exam. The “phase” never really ended. Throughout his early years Tomo grew more and more uppity, eventually making a big mess of things that sort of broke his relationship with dad and oldest brother. Although mom and his sisters were still great, and the few neighbourhood friends still hung out, life of someone who got held up a year was not looking too shiny.

Although it robbed Tomo of some dear things the awakening of his prana and forced custody by government organization was in a way blessing. Out of home he didn’t have to give a shit about dad and bro or music volume. He could do as he pleased, so long as he did what the government folk told him to do. And besides, how tough could this occultist work really be?

Personal Aspirations Tomo dreamed of many things. In chronological order he wanted to be fashionista, hair stylist, makeup-artist, musician, dancer, comedian, professional spray painter, designer, tailor, and the list goes on. He often pursued each dream for a period of one to five weeks, dedicating his entire free time and little more in scrambling for resources and practicing. Often he, his friends, and one lil sis managed to set up something small that would let them play around and do some rather neat stuff with a minimum budget. Tomo has made nearly every accessory he wears himself, mixed the hair dye, and given him his own tattoos and piercings. He has also come up with a couple of really embarrassingly shoddy dances and cheesy ballad lyrics that he will refuse to ever sing again.

Shadows & Shiki Still barely believes it. Tomo feels like he’s living in some sort of fantasy and perhaps doesn’t quite understand the gravity of what he’s been pulled into yet. He is going to treat Shiki just like anyone else since they seem like humans, somehow. However this whole thing about forming a partnership, prana, and what it exactly means still has Tomo hesitant. The hell is he going to give his prana, or whatever the organization calls it, to some random monster from another world!

Shiki on the other hand he fears. His first night was a horrible traumatic experience, and though he may try to laugh in the face of danger now that’s still all just an act.

Other Points of Interest:
-Adopts a new fad every Monday. Tomo lives on the edge of popular music and fashion.
-Sigil marking decorates the space between his sex and navel.
-Rather flippant about sex and rather the domineering (takes what he wants type), though still doesn’t always end up on top…
-Sometimes gets very mopy or worried about what others might think. Usually three weeks after he went on a rage tirade about something or the other.

Since it's a new recruit thread, I just wanted to gently remind players to not set up pairings before the start of the game. It's nice to go "Ohhh these look like they'd be fun together" but the GMs encourage players to focus on the slice of life aspect of the game - Romance/Sexual should be secondary or even third to everything since Slice of Life and Fighting Shadows is the predominant part of this game.

We would like all characters to be made specifically to stand alone, not to be made to be paired up with any one character. Please do not do this, we don't want custom made characters, because if one if the players leave - the other is left hanging.


Important Edit:

Gms will strictly disallow sexual content the first day of the game. This is so we can establish the setting and characters, and deal with the first 'Dark Hour' of the game.

Because our Occultist count is 4 of 7 on each of the genders we will be more selective in the occultists that come in. We are going to be looking at adding more characters that will work with the current cast - but are not too similar to all of them.

In the process of creating your male or female occultist please review what we already have present in the game. (There are a few links that still are not working as those players are from the first version and still need to post their profiles.)

I think the safest answer to their ages is anywhere from 18 (when their prana burst happens) to... Well, the oldest human player character is 26 so far I think!

Name: Impu
Player: LeSane
Age: 2,567 (550BC to Present day)
Height: 6'3"
Hair Color: Platinum White/Raven Black
Eye Color: Pale Gold
World: Charon
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
Selfless: Impundulu has a gentle and warm personality that contradicts his appearance. Impu is a soft-spoken, polite, and caring man who uses honorifics when addressing everyone, including the enemy. He rarely shows any signs of panic or distress and has a great sense of duty. Despite his sense of duty, he will also heal 'almost' anybody around him. Since Impu arrived on Earth, and the Occultists, referring to them as allies despite the obvious reluctance to do so. With his grace and courteous manners, he lets others know quietly that while he may be kind, he is not to be taken lightly.

Chivalrous: He claims injury and death is nothing, but the price one pays for the vicious cycle of violence. Despite his tendency to be a capable warrior, Impu usually stops a fight if his feels his opponent is too injured to fight back, claiming he is not interested in fighting 'weaklings who can't stand on their own two feet.'  He does not feel obligated to deal a death blow to anyone who cannot fight any longer even if they are the enemy. However, he will unhesitatingly kill his opponent if they refuse to end their fight since they've willing forfeited their life once they attack once more.

Shiki Background
History
Impu was apart of a royal guard of a special organization in the Charon that performs services for a royal family. It has a considerable amount of fighting, organizational, and executive power compared to other organizations. They are also charged with the slaying intruders and the overall protection of those in his charge, though the circumstances under which they do so are unknown. Since serving the royal family is the primary purpose of the guard, he did not interfere in affairs and the defense of the Charon, even against major threats. What little he wished to speak of it and why, but they are known to do whatever is required by order of their 'King'.

The Royal Guard's authority once superseded the administration of all within Charon. Each member of the trained and imparted with power onto their bones by their 'King'. Upon the passing of their King they disbanded leaving the title of Royal Guard behind, yet being able to keep their powers under heavy restrictions. Unlike the other four former guardsmen, Impu decided to explore the world called earth as he was not in tune with the mortal plane as the others. Since the royal guard commonly stayed within the Palace Impu came from what most assumed from the heavens from a giant pillar, yet he was sealed inside unable to free himself it was only when the occultists tested it was he released from his prison with little memory of his past.

Perception of Humanity
No matter what planet, no matter what galaxy, they always look up in wonder. Some fall to their knees in worships, others hide behind walls and towers, but the thing they do best. Is beg for mercy. It's just deplorable.

Metamorphosis|Passive Ability
He has the unique passive ability to convert health into energy, or energy into health. The ability to do will is based on the form he shifts into graciously dubbed Day form and Night form. Upon changing forms all those in a 30ft radius gain temporarily boost their resilience and natural defense in Night form, or a boost in attack power and speed while in Day form.

Mend & Maim
He calls forth the serenity of night or calamity of day, surrounding himself in an aura of moonlight's gleam with a radius of 10 meters. In night form 'Mend' he emits a regenerative aura that heals minor cuts and bruises and does greater lengths of healing the closer one within range to both allied Shiki and Occultists inside the aura. Mend accumulates all of the healing done by boosting the defenses of allies for each enemy within the aura.

He calls for the calamity of the day in the Day form surrounding himself in an aura of sunlight's glare he emits lacerations to all enemies within range. 'Maim' accumulates all the pain from enemies within a radius of 10 meters. Allies within the radius gain a boost in speed while enemies are slowed once damaged. Upon deactivating Maim, all stored damage is released in a violent burst that affects all enemies within range.

LeSane please make sure to PM it to the GMs. Also make not of which is your base ability that you start the game with - and make sure it matches up to the chart of the Shiki power levels around that stage. Angelischiel is a good example for what a basic level Shiki (which all shikis that start this game must be) would be at for a 'Support' Class Shiki. Your other abilities will need to be slotted to high slots to be attained when you get enough Sigils.

Name: Corrin Cromwell
Player: clockworkInferno https://elliquiy.com/forums/onsoffs.php?u=63072
Age: 1326
Height: 5'8"
Hair Color: Platinum White
Eye Color: Scarlet Red
World: Charon
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
Charismatic: Cromwell tends to be fairly light-hearted, for a Shiki. He draws in the crowd, even if it isn't desired. Keeping a calm mind, Corrin tends to be the center of attention when he pulls out the stops. His personality can only be described as kind-hearted and full of life. Corrin, in spite of how he was treated in his home plane, keeps things level-headed and never lets things wear him down.
Optimistic: Corrin keeps things positive, looking at the glass as half full, even when things get dark. His light is the sun that keeps his allies on the straight and narrow, making sure that everything goes out without a hitch. He turns things around at the last minute, pulling off strange miracles. Be it bringing in an ally, or getting things done that others will not do, Corrin gets the job done.

Shiki Background
History
A little bit about Corrin's home life. His name in the Charon lexicon is nigh unpronouncible, but we'll get to why he is called Corrin later. Corrin belongs to one of the darker families in Charon. While many families in Charon are mainly angles and other lighter beings, Corrin belongs to a clan of Vampires, who all tend to keep to themselves. Corrin was a black sheep amongst the black sheep. He lived for the parties with the other Shiki, and often snuck out to be with his fellow Charonites.

The year was 1692, and it was Corrin's 1000th Birthday. In his family, it is tradition for Shiki on their 1000th birthday to meditate the entire day until they attain a state that resonates with someone on Earth, making them easier to summon. He began his meditation and spent the whole day sitting still, resonating until he finally locked with somebody on the Continental United States. He said goodbye to his family and was transported to his new summoner. When he was summoned, chaos ensued. He was summoned in the middle of the forest by an older woman and several small girls. Yes, Corrin Cromwell is responsible for the Salem Witch Trials. He was given the name Corrin Cromwell as a sort of aliby for the girls to give an excuse for their actions, all of which fell apart as the Trials went on. Throughout the Trials, Corrin tried to help out his friends by keeping them company at night. This just drove them insane by his strange aura he emitted (passive Eye of Cromwell).

Once the Trials ended and all of the hangings ceased, Corrin disappeared for a long time. A couple of centuries passed, and he felt the call of another Occultist. Once the Shadow Hours started being noticed, he felt his precense was needed. The modern era seemed to fit his personality a lot more than when he first arrived on Earth. Hopefully this new Occultist will turn out better than his fitst set of 'friends'.

Perception of Humanity Corrin thinks humans are fickle beings. They will do whatever it takes to win any adversity put against them. That being said, he does think that they are interesting, for the way they overcome obsticles surpasses anything he could ever come up with. As far as Occultists, he has had some bad experiences with them. His first bonding did not leave a good taste in his mouth. He is wary of forming a bond with one, mostly because he is exlusive with who he trusts. Once he trusts someone, though, he will do anything to make sure that they never get hurt. He becomes a 'Guardian Vampire' of sorts.

Eyes of Cromwell Corrin instills the power of the Cromwell family into his subject, and attempts to bend their minds to his will. The difficulty of the target depends on how high the person/Shiki's will and their morals. The higher their will or morals, the tougher it is to control them.

Other Points of Interest:
-In spite of being the life of the party, Corrin tends to blend into the background when it comes to hooking up with people. This tends to make him very naive about things related to sex. He'd need a bit of a dom/switch to get his gears going.
-He was once coerced into hiring a Succubi-Shiki for a 'night of fun'. He mistook this as an actual night of fun, and spent the night playing board games, doing each others' nails, and the like. He still hasn't lived that down amongst his peers....
-His bite can be quite lethal, or feel nice, depending on his mood. Pray that it his mood lands on the latter.

Clarification for people joining  the game - When we mentioned only 2 sigils will be allowed at start of game, per shiki, we meant that those sigils would be the max a Shiki could take on during the event that opens the game. No shiki starts the game with more than their base power.

GM Announcement:

We've noticed a particular trend for certain long-lived characters, mainly Shiki, to be portrayed as virgins despite having lived for thousands of years and having had every opportunity to at some point get their cherry popped, so we've reached the conclusion that some clarification is needed before such characters are accepted.

From now on, no new characters who have lived over a hundred years with a lifestyle that could easily facilitate sex are allowed to explicitly be virgins. Unexperienced or shy is fine, but common sense should apply, particularly when there are way more explanations as to why they would NOT be virgins than vice-versa.

Exceptions to this would be individuals who are part of a Monk establishment that follow particular teachings that preach Chastity for Enlightenment, or any Mythological sources version of Celestial Maidens. These, and those like them, are the only ones that can logistically claim to have not had sex at all.

We do this for the balance of the game, not to remove a players ability to have creativity. While sexual compatibility is a far second to the games overall compatibility, it would be sad for players to be unable to find things they would enjoy on a sexual level - because there are a limited number of characters in the game that are interested in sex with virgins

Current Number counts of the game.

We have 5/7 Male Occultists
We have 5/7 Female Occultists (After Amarlo posts hers)

We have 7/9 Male Shiki (After Clockwork posts his)
We have 6/9 Female Shiki

What we are currently seeking - Support class Shiki and softer Female/Male characters.

We are reviewing profiles that have been turned in, but please be aware we will be much more selective as we are now essentially working on trying to round out the group.

If you want to know what we do or do not have, please read the profiles already posted. A few of the old groups members still need to post theirs, their places will be held till Thursday at the latest. (With the Exception of Melody who made us aware of his situation with his moving and having no access. His spots are held till he returns.) If the old group hasn't posted their profiles by Thursday, those slots will be dropped for them and they will open for other characters.

Edit: We are no longer accepting 'strong' type female characters, either as occultists or Shiki. We need peacekeepers and sweetness.

UPDATE! Listing for people still interested in making characters, or still in the approval process. This is what we have currently. It links to all of the profiles, so you can see everything that we have, and see what we need as well. Currently standing there is a Ban on Strong Female character types - we really need more peacekeeping characters and we lack many females with this quality (we have a few to the rather large number of characters) - and we have only one female occultist slot. We have a Ban on Virgins that are Shiki over 100 years of age (unless following one of the GM guidelines and even then we will probably be hesitant). We have room for 3 Female Shiki, 2 Male Shiki, 2 Male humans, and 1 Female Human.

The profiles that are 'held' are those tied to players of the old game that let the Staff know it might be a little bit before they can post their profiles.

Name: Morana
Player: Vonandi
Age: 1488y
Height: 5’6” (168cm)
Hair Color: White
Eye Color: Black Sclera, orange irises, and
    Pupils that are like looking to the heart of a furnace
World: Veskra
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
Independent/Erratic/Reckless: She values her freedom above all else, and pays little mind to rules both concrete or abstract, moral or civil. Detests taking orders or feeling like she is being constrained in any way. As such she’s generally hard to control or predict, and often she acts only to stafisty whatever her current whims are with little thought of the possible consequences.

Pleasure-seeking/Ruthless: She finds herself growing bored fairly quickly, and is constantly seeking new things to amuse her. Often involving violence and almost always at the expense of others.

Shiki Background
History: Monsters aren’t created idly: The only constant in Morana’s life has been hardship. From being forced to kill and eat her womb-mates to survive as a freshly born whelp, from serving in the legions of a great demon Lord during her formative years.

If one thing has been beaten into psyche over her millennia of existence it’s that if that you are unable to fight, if you are unable to Kill, you are less than meat - a meal, a slave, a toy: Nothing. Morana didn’t chose to come to earth, she was thrown to earth. Stripped and beaten within an inch of her life, exiled from her world and wiped of her status by beings more powerful than her. Thrown into a world of weaklings, of creatures who fear her - obey her… In this world she has the power, no human can touch her - they worship the corpses she leaves in her wake. If this is what it takes to be free, than she pities anyone who tries to stop her.

Perception of Humanity: Meat. Cattle. She has no interest in the affairs of humans and has no qualms in ending their lives. The idea of being bound to one actively disgusts and angers her, but her hunger for prana is insatiable, and to that end she has swallowed her pride and opened her self to helping the occultists - at least for now.

Resistant to pain/Flaming claws: Her claws are razor sharp, and she can wreath and part of her body in flames that can melt through steel just by touching it.

Flame Displacement: She wreaths herself in flames: in addition to burning people who get close to her the flames mirror parts of her image, making it hard to tell where she actually is in the blaze.

Other Points of Interest:
-Her physiology rejects anything that isn’t fresh red meat, and She usually subsists on small animals to that effect.
-She mainly uses her wings to grant her a degree of verticality, as they are too weak to carry her for extended periods.

Please review what we have in the game, and then look at what we may not have. We will be more easily accepting of something unique, compared to something we already have (Race and character type wise.) - GM NPCs do not count, so do not worry about them, build your character off of the PCs already in the game and what we lack for the long term of the game.

I’m interested in this game, the plot and overall genre sounds amazing to RP in! I’ll be making a Shiki for the Support class tonight, hopefully finished by then too!

WIP

Name: Mallory
Player: Tokyorose627
Age: 2000 Years Old
Height: 5’0
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Brown
World: // Charon
Sexuality: Heterosexual

Personality
(Carefree): Being stressed out and worried all of the time over small things didn’t help anyone, did it? Mallory likes to keep a relaxed and calm mindset, taking things slow when it comes to work that she needs to do. Always one to keep up on her duties and tasks, she doesn’t get stressed or overwhelmed, finding that it only seemed to make things worse. As a result, she’s become someone that help others relax and wind down, being an breath of air and comfort for some.
(Thoughtful): As her attitude tends to be more relaxed, she tends to think of others and their wellbeing. Wanting to help in whatever way she can, she’s tends to ask others if they need help or if they are in need of anything. This tends to result in her being quite busy the rest of the day, but as long as others could take a breath and relax, then her job was a success! Being someone to talk to allows her to learn more about others, and she never seems to pass the chance to learn.

Shiki Background

History Mallory lived amongst others in Charon, keeping to herself and doing what she wished. Exploring the world was something she always intrigued in, and as years past, it was something she continued to do. It wasn’t until a few centuries later that she had begun to talk to others that lived in her world, all waiting for the day that they would be summoned. She found it strange, everyday when one individual would disappear, to another, then another; why was summoning a Shiki of such importance to humans? She knew humans had problems, many of them caused by their own race, but what could they do to fix it?

Her curiosities seemed to get the better of her however, when she soon found herself summoned by an Occultist, and one that was simply a beginner. They did not know what she was or what to do with her, but they simply gave her a name, and had her become a simple handmaiden for the time being. The year of wicked women in trials were soon over by the time she had helped her Master, but when the time came for her to leave, they refused. Hellbent on keeping her to use her power, Mallory fought them, and in the end, to her Master had died, but not before a magic had been cast on her, rendering into a deep sleep. For centuries she slept, and when the time came that she finally awoke, it was the modern era. Confused as to what time it was, and as to where she could return to Charon, she found that her magic had weakened from the magic cast in her. Unsure of what she should do, Mallory began to wonder the Earth once more, finding modern times to be rather strange at first. Over time, she became accustomed to humans and their ways, and began to mingle within their society, blending in as a human, until she could find a way back to her home.

Perception of Humanity On one hand, she finds humans to be a bit stupid, due to some of the things they have done in their short existence. Causing wars and famine across the world, and many fights being amongst one another, she couldn’t tell what to make of them. However, once she came to Earth and found herself amongst the race of people, she found that they were much more complex then she believed. They had thoughts and emotions, and had discussions about the world beyond.

(Voice of the Angels) By singing a melody, Mallory is able to imbue an individual with a feeling of happiness and warmth, drowning out panic and pain otherwise felt from injuries, as her magic heals them. Affects from her magic are limited, so she cannot heal serious injuries completely.

(1st Verse) A melody grants an individual the strength they possess, twicefold. It lasts for only one minute.

(2nd Verse) A melody that grants an individual increased defense, blocking attacks that would otherwise immensely injure them. This last for only one minute.

(3rd Verse) A short melody that heals an individual of an alignment such as poison.

(Maiden’s Rhapsody) The final verse, when sung, creates a barrier around Mallory and whoever is near, healing and imbuing whoever is inside with vitality and energy to fight on. The effect lasts for 2 minutes.

Other Points of Interest:
- Mallory loves having different clothes, especially human clothes. She finds something so interesting, with all the different types of clothes, and colors that she could choose from. Despite this, no outfit compares to the clothes she wore when living in Charon: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/b/b2/L_olivia.png/revision/latest?cb=20160810114900

- Her Rhapsody (Theme song): https://soundcloud.com/hakan-cakir-209451797/the-heritors-of-arcadia-fire-emblem-echoes-shadows-of-valentia-ost

- She doesn’t seem to think of it as important information, but she still retains her virtue. She just hasn’t found the right person to be her match yet.

Personality
Ambitious:  Zostroy is fairly young as denizens of Veskra go, and as such he's felt the weight of their belligerant society grind him under heel more keenly than some.  Memories of suckling the barest amounts of essence from bone worms, and having to shiv his peers to obtain basic necessities still prey on his idle thoughts.  Such indignities drove him to ruthlessly climb the hierarchy of the Legion before, and it still spurs him on in the world of mortals.  Zostroy hasn't got much patience for aimless Occultists who lack strong desires of their own, but a relationship where both sides use the other suits him just fine.

Blood Thirsty:  Zostroy's pride is that of a warrior, and as such he tends to think in a military framework.  People are neatly divided up into Allies and Enemies, and in Veskran military doctrine no quarter is spared for one's enemies.  Zostroy enjoys seeing the opposition broken and bleeding into the soil, and thrills to the sound of steel on steel.  He tends to gravitate towards others with an affinity for martial conflict, though really he'd be satisfied with any Occultist ruthless or sadistic enough to keep him busy.  He's the sort to believe that a sword won't rust if you keep the blood on it wet.

Shiki Background
History Zostroy manifested in the Basalt City of Ymn'golnir, a squirming wretch struggling to survive under the light of three green suns that kept the earth parched and broken.  His formative years were spent wringing a miserable existance from the leavings of low-tier demons and being spat on by vindictive imps who were quick the take advantage of the fact that there were actually life forms below them in Vaskra's great hierarchy.  Starving and angry, Zostroy signed on with the Legion ... it meant risking possible destruction, but there were no other handholds for him to elevate himself by.

Young as he was, Zostroy navigated the Byzantine labyrinth of the Legion's rank structure steadily.  He ran up against a glass cieling as a non-commissioned officer ... he simply didn't have the physical strength to earn a commission.  Unwilling to wait for his body to catch up with ambition, he paid the Witch of Black Sands to lay a curse upon him.  It would visit madness upon him in the battlefield, but as a creature of spirit, his delusions could become reality to a certain extent.

Zostroy met his end during the Battle of Dagger Pass.  After a bad defeat, his forces were in retreat through a narrow mountain path, rushing to rendezvous with another unit that was digging in for a counter attack.  Unfortunately, with the enemy's aerial cavalry, there was no doubt that they'd be overrun.  Zostroy parted from the rest of his unit to hold the narrow pass by himself and buy them the time they needed to get away.  The battle raged for hours, Zostroy went deeper into his madness than he ever had before ... he barely remembers any of it himself, it's little more than a sensation of crushing pressure and a red haze to his recollection.  Some stories from survivors exist, however, of a sickening heat that made the world waver and twist, a six-armed beast armed with broken swords, and men killed by soldiers that did not exist.  Even with a dozen mortal wounds, and his body set aflame, Zostroy refused to acknowledge his death, and so continued to fight on impossibly.

Eventually, the enemy came upon a solution that would work.  They pinned him down to the earth with lances, and while he was struggling to tear off his own limbs and tear out their throats with his teeth, they set up a banishing circle and cast him out of Veskra.

The transition to Earth was not kind ot Zostroy.  Bleeding off most of his Prana, his wounds caught up to him.  Only his armor and a bloody shroud wound tight kept his miserable body together, his wounds unable to heal.  His mind swam with fever, and he staggered across the world like a corpse ... but his body still knew what it needed.  He was all too susceptible to the siren's call of the Prana-Ritual.

Perception of Humanity Zostroy's opinion on humanity as a whole is pretty favorable.  As a fairly low ranked demon in the Legion, he understands better than many of his fellows what it means to be mortal.  Devoid of millennia old officers with exhaustive but deeply entrenched views regarding military strategy, humanity's technological developement and ever evolving military doctrine has progressed in leaps and bounds compared to what he's used to.  As they only are only fighting fit for so long, art, music, theater, and other forms of entertainment have proliferated down into the ranks of the common rabble.  It seems a much more fulfilling life, short as it may be, than the constant toil, backstabbing, and warmaking of his homeland, punctuated by the occassional festival or noble-backed demonstration.  Perhaps if he'd been born the scion of a noble bloodline such things would not be as impressive to him, but that's simply not the case.

Zostroy's opinion of Occultists is a little more nuanced.  In a very real way, they're a necessity for him to function in this plane, the Prana they provide him necessary to maintain his body.  On the otherhand, nothing is free, the trade-off for that Prana is obedience.  Fortunately, as a Veskran, Zostroy knows a few things about necessary evils.  Amongst the relatively peaceful populace of this world, it's difficult to find Occultists he has a high affinity with, but he's open to the idea of contracting with multiple would-be masters for the time being.  After all, it's more power in the short term, and he believes that having conflicting standing orders from multiple Occultists will give him some extra lattitude that he wouldn't have when just functioning as one person's "pet".

Battle Madness Engraved on Zostroy's soul is the Curse of Madness, when adrenaline surges and his blood heats up from a battle, Zostroy slips into a kind of battle trance.  The longer the battle goes, the deeper Zostroy slips into madness, as he loses awareness of himself and his surroundings his body can be made to forget its limitations and function at a heightened state.  More radical changes require more Prana, which functions as a kind of limiter.  Anyone with a Sigil on Zostroy can disrupt his trance, forcibly resetting him to his base state, which functions as a convenient leash.  No matter how far gone he is, Zostroy will not attack anyone who has a Sigil on his body, as his unconscious mind recognizes them as a part of his "self".

Lvl 0 - "Pain exists in the mind, it has no power over me." - Zostroy feels no pain and doesn't suffer from shock, allowing him to continue fighting after recieving wounds that would end another combatant.

Lvl 1 - "Hate your wounds and they will cease to be." - Without pain, it's easy to forget that you were injured at all.  Zostroy's body regenerates rapidly while in battle, though any damage still existant when his rage ends will persist.

Battleground of Ruin Zostroy's body remembers every conflict he's had, even if his mind frequently does not.  Unattended items near him during battle dissolve into a fine iron powder that swirls around Zostroy like a storm of black sand.  With a flash of heat, this sand can become a replica of any weapon that Zostroy has encountered, meaning that he always has the appropriate weapon for a conflict.  This sand can be shaped when its distant from Zostroy as well, allowing him to create arrows already in flight, or spears that stab up from the ground or out of walls, providing him with distance attacks.

Other Points of Interest:
-  Zostroy displays certain animalistic tendencies, in particular he seems to identity things as much by scent as by sight, enjoys getting his head scritched, and tends to snap at people who get between him and his food.

- Zostroy has a competitive streak to him that extends beyond martial prowess.  He'll accept a challenge for anything from Texas Hold 'Em to Mario Kart, though he can be a horrible braggart when he wins.

- Zostroy is also pretty easy to bribe.  He never encountered sweets before comming to Earth, so he's weak to cookies and candies.  Unfortunately, his sharpened teeth don't insulate well against cold, so he's badly susceptible to icecream headaches.
