Is an older man okay? You don't see many of them in games  :P

"Unfinished"
MARCUS LINT
Also Known As: n/a
Age: 47
Occupation: Artist
Sexual Orientation: Asexual
Deity: Pan, God of the Wild, of Nature, of Music, of Fertility, of the Season of Spring, of Sex, and the companion of nymphs.

Background: Marcus is a world renowned artist. That wasn't his intended path in life; as a child he had always enjoyed art and spent much of his free time painting and drawing, but his parents had always said that it was time best spent as a hobby, not a career - the phrase starving artist didn't come from nowhere. Despite his passion, he very much saw the wisdom in what his parents said and decided to enroll in the local college with the intention of becoming a zoologist. It was a profession that aligned with his interests and could provide an income. Still, he signed up for an art class at the same time.

Abigail Summers was his art teacher and strongly believed that Marcus should give up his major to seriously pursue art, but Marcus could not be persuaded. Instead, Abigail spoke with the Science department which had recently secured funding for a small trip to the Amazon Jungle to study the golden lion tamarin monkey. She wanted Marcus to attend as an artist to document the wildlife found. Needless to say, the science department had no desire to waste a limited spot on an artist. Abigail made little headway, but she continued up the food chain and successfully argued a spot for Marcus to attend the adventure. Marcus was thrilled - it was an opportunity that never would have been afforded to a freshman, but the trip was brutal. The scientists were resentful that a coveted spot on their expedition had been wasted on Marcus and refused to include him in any meaningful conversation. Embarrassed and saddened, he tagged along quietly and set to his work.

It wasn't until a week later on a late evening that Marcus felt bold enough to say something. The group was arguing about a detail in what they had observed earlier that day - something Marcus had actually captured in his artwork - and he took out one of his boards. The group fell silent for two reasons: one, the answer to their debate was definitively given and two, the amount of detail that had been captured amazed them. They had not bothered to look at his work before now or take his position in the group seriously, but now they were seeing that maybe there was some merit to the space he was taking up. That night opened a door for Marcus. The next (and last) four days of the trip were spent as part of a group where he made life-long friends, but those scientists also took his artwork to show off to colleagues which opened up a new job opportunity: Marcus became an artist, going on trips with scientists to document nature.

He's traveled the world and his artwork has been featured in wildlife museums, textbooks, documentaries, and more. During one of his trips he had a serious accident, injuring his knee. He's still able to walk, but being out in the field for extended periods of time is difficult for him. He's since transitioned to becoming a guest lecturer, making a living talking about his experiences and teaching. A few months ago he settled in Olympia. He expects to spend the semester guest-teaching several classes at the local colleges, but he's had trouble adjusting. He has always been in love with the great outdoors; he's never had a serious relationship due to lack of desire. But lately, that's changed in a way that frightens him. He's looking at the young men and women he's surrounded by in a way that he's never had an interest in before, and the overwhelming desire has set him to creating highly sexual paintings and sculptures as an outlet.

Talents: Painting, sculpture, public speaking, teaching, outdoorsman

Godly Gift: Teleportation: Marcus can teleport himself and those around him to places that he's traveled before.

Appearance: He's good looking in a rugged sort of way, and his graying hair suits him well. You can tell that he was fit in his youth, but since the accident (and maybe with age) he's softened up a bit. He has green eyes, dark brown hair, and stands around 6'1.

Personality: Marcus was always a quiet kid without much to say, but his career changed that; the wild adventures he's been on gives him a story to relate to every situation. Without effort, he sees the positive potential in any situation and deeply admires the beauty of the natural world. Lately, his personality has changed. He's feeling an attraction that borders on the obsessive with people he meets and he cannot stop fantasizing about them sexually - this frightens him as he long ago came to understand that he experienced no sexual attraction or even desire for physical intimacy. Late bloomer?

Divine Motivation: To experience the carnal pleasures of life.

Ons/Offs: Can be found generally, here. The "nevers" are always a no, everything else is negotiable. Be forewarned: Marcus is not a virgin, but he has spent his entire life having no interest in sex, so he has very little experience. Thanks to a little divine interference, he has the stamina to continue past his embarrassingly early finishes and the unfettered desire to experience all sorts of lewd acts.

Archie
Archimedes Damien Cartwright
Also Known As: Archie, DC, Be-right
Age: 34
Occupation: Network Engineer  / Agent
Sexual Orientation: Heterosexual
Deity:   (Ptah Egyptian - God of creation, fertility, arts and crafts)

Background:  Archie lost his father to the war, he moved to the area where he got caught up in the wrong crowd, no matter how many church services his mother took him to, it really didn’t stick. Oh he learned and it made sense to him, but if there was a God, why did he let his father die and leave his mother scraping. His mother worked hard…so much so she couldn’t keep up with him and he turned to drugs to help her make ends meet. 
 
 Even then, he learned how to survive the hard way. It was then that his mother was fed up and sent him to live with her father, his grandfather who didn’t play. This might have very well saved his life. His grandfather was old school SEAL and did all that he could to take the street out of Archie. Granddad did what he could, he trained him daily in everything he could, weapons, combat, swords, knives, guns. He poured into the boy until he turned 17. Archie thought he knew best and he was going to become a gang leader. Grandpa found out and gave him a choice, if he could beat him, he would let him go lead the gang, if not he would join the Navy.
 
 Needless to say, Archie got his ass handed to him and enlisted the following weekend. Archie was gone for 8 years he came back to a job as a Computer technician. He was pretty sure with a good head on his shoulders he would be not just a Seal, but an Elite Seal. But his government was far from done with him and he was recruited even further into a secret society within the CIA. 
He had been fully infested within the game and now he wanted out.  Six years later he has his own business but is still trying to get out of the game when this happens.

Talents: Master CQC Practitioner, Superior Marksman, Espionage, Computers, Survival, Weapons Specialist, Manual Manipulative Techniques –(Very skilled with his hands for pain/pleasure.) Chemistry, Engineering - Various

Godly Gift: Heightened Mental Capacity: Archie is mentally gifted this has allowed him almost complete control over his own physical form in the area of strength, endurance, etc.   His mental gives have granted him the ability to learn at an accelerated rate as well as hold information for an unspecified amount of time.  He can be a machine at times ignoring the effect of pain and damage. 
 The drawback is once he comes down he needs to be with or around good medical personnel to fix things up.

Appearance: 6’3” Dark Skinned man that has a body that has been forged into a lethal weapon over time, his form has been deadly to both friend and foe.  He had been the consummate crafter, taking in all manner of knowledge to form the great specimen of sculpted chocolate you see before you.
His sleek frame has allowed him to look much younger than his age suggests and able to do things those much younger than him would find difficulty doing.  His well-manicured features give way to his handsome dark face and his deep brown eyes that give the look, at times of being both predator and prey to the right person.

Personality: Adaptive, Determined, Focused, Protective, tenacious, and can be vindictive at times.

Divine Motivation: To be able to work through ultimate creation in every facet of life…even death!
Ons/Offs: Same as Player just ask, Sure we can work out something
Extras: Personal arsenal of ancient and high tech weapons (including body armor), Specially built laptop and Computer. Modified vehicles designed for protection.

Here's my proposed CS.  Please let me know if anything should be tweaked or adjusted.  Thank you.

Akira

Akira Shinano
Also Known As: Aki (childhood nickname, one that close friends or lovers might use)
Age: 22
Occupation: Graduate Student & Teaching Assistant (Environmental Science, specialty potamology (study of rivers/streams))
Sexual Orientation: Bi-curious (Pansexual but not conscious of it yet)
Deity: Sekhmet, goddess of war, the hot/harmful sun, disease, healing

Background: Akira is the oldest son of a Japanese couple who came to the United States before he was born for work, employed with a Japanese electronics company with a strong presence in the US.  Despite his name and family history, Akira was born in the US, is a citizen, and thinks of himself as an American.  Not everyone always agrees, sadly.  The young man was always studious and achieved academically but despite participating at his parents' insistence, never excelled in sports (he participated in swimming and baseball in high school).  He won scholarships to attend college, much to his parents' pleasure, and ended up double majoring in Environmental Science and Engineering.  He graduated cum laude and immediately entered Graduate School.  Akira intends to go all the way to a doctorate before entering the workforce, wanting to work in hydroelectric power generation but also in making such plants more environmentally sound.

Lately, though, he's been going out more rather than just studying and working on his classwork and dissertation.  He feels compelled to go to bars and clubs but also just out to look for...he's not even sure what.  But he's also been experiencing strange...feelings.  And sometimes he things his body is changing.  Privately, Akira is afraid he's going insane, even while he's also feeling more liberated than ever in his life.  And like he's on the edge of something within himself...some admission or truth which will change everything.

Talents: Well Read, Research, Mental Mathematics, Swimmer, SCUBA, bilingual (Japanese)

Godly Gift: Physical Ideal - Sekhmet is a goddess of war and wrath above all and has begun to change Akira's body so it can be a vessel of her fury and retribution.  His physical abilities (primarily strength but also his dexterity, stamina, etc) have been growing over time since Sekhmet entered them.  While not superhuman, Akira's physical abilities are far higher than they should be given their body/mass/etc and will continue to increase overtime.  Sekhmet is also changing Akira's body in other ways, transforming them into the person they want to be in their unconscious mind and trying to make it conscious.  The change may resolve dramatically if/when Akira accepts this. 

A downside is that now that Sekhmet is part of them, Akira's temper has gotten much shorter as the goddess' wrath infects them.  And if they ever do get into a fight, that temper is likely to run away with them and put them in a berserker state.  Pain caused by others may cause this too or witnessing a person doing something awful to another.  I.E. a headache won't cause trouble but if someone puts them in a joint lock or strikes them will likely regret it.  Witnessing a beating or attempted sexual assault of another person could also trigger this.

Appearance: Akira is on the short side of average and is very slender, almost scrawny by some descriptions.  Their features are fine and delicate with full lips and a pert nose.  Their hair is dark and usually mussed, kept clean but usually styled more by the wind than their own efforts.  Their eyes are very dark, seeming almost black, and are very keen and emotive.

After Change
Akira is short with a slender but very curvaceous build, being particularly busty.  They take greater care of their appearance now, having their hair trimmed and usually in a cute bob cut.

Personality: Akira is intelligence and educated, often speaking formally and using large words.  They don't mean to sound stuffy or like they're trying to lord their education over people, but it can come off as pretentious.  They are more socially shy and awkward, though they've become more bold lately, more open to expressing themselves and saying things out loud that they would only think before.  Akira is proud of being reliable and dependable, if they say they will do something, they always follow through. 

Despite being a nerd and a geek, they enjoy time in the outdoors, particularly around water (rivers more than the ocean) and swimming.  Akira is SCUBA trained and certified and enjoys going on dives immensely.  They also like spending time in batting cages, the practice almost meditative and helping them think through things.  They don't generally drink, but when they do, they will get very drunk.  This will also be a way of snapping them out of any fury that Sekhmet may engender, echoing her mythology. 

Divine Motivation: To bring divine retribution on the wicked using Akira as Sekhment's vessel, with a side goal of bringing Akira to their true self.

Ons/Offs: Same as player (in signature) but ask if any questions!

Here we go! An app for your consideration; please let me know if anything should be adjusted.

"Marcus Lint"
MARCUS LINT
Also Known As: n/a
Age: 47
Occupation: Artist
Sexual Orientation: Asexual
Deity: Pan, God of the Wild, of Nature, of Music, of Fertility, of the Season of Spring, of Sex, and the companion of nymphs.
