Lost Command (lightNC-EX-Freeform-Scifi)
« on: August 05, 2009, 04:46:57 PM »
The year is 2110, the world is fantasy gone future; so elves, demons, magic and the whole bit do exist.  Although we have traveled outside of our solar system at this point in our future we have only been a few light years away; and even that has been very expensive and deadly.  Your unit is the first group to try out a experimental engine that, if it works, could propel us to other galaxies for the first time. 

Your group was selected and trained to take "The Freya"; a exploration ship given the experimental engine to a solar system on the edge of the Messier 101 Galaxy.  On the day of the Launch you were all suited up and the launch started off without a hitch.  As the engine engaged to launch the thrust was WAY more than the mission expected, it was as if a chain of nuclear explosions were going off.  And then Darkness.  When you all awoke the ships computers show the videos of during the launch with a chain of explosions going off and the computer calculated the probability that the entire space station and surrounding planet were destroyed at a 99.6% probability. 

The ship is in pretty rough shape so the Captain scans the area looking for planets or anything, and it seems that there is an odd object floating in space a bit off, which happens to be a very large space station that has military looking ships docked at it.  Not only do the scanners read that there is probably a breathable atmosphere in the station but that it is approaching and soon has you surrounded in a beam and is tractor beaming you in.  The caption calls you all to the Docking Bay as your ship touched down in the station.


I am looking for a small group maybe 4-5, a mix of races and genders who would all be members in this unit.  I would be open to adding in another 2 later on once we have made contact with what on the other side of the door if people are interested in that.   I would be the captain, This will work as a military operation with Rank being important.  So there will be a bit of a build in DOM with orders. A quick Spoiler that the "aliens" are very humanoid and their leader has desires.

Ranks (by how many we would need)
1 Private (Taken - Stomper Male Imp)
1 Private (Taken - Tethumhaxael Female Succubus)
1 corporal (Taken-Aerynis Lydira Female Elf)
1 sergeant (Taken-Iallyn Female Dark Elf)
1 lieutenant (Taken-Samael Veles Male Dragon Kin)
1 Captain (Taken-Shale Male Human)

Ask me any questions if you have any.

Name: Iallyn
Rank: Sergeant
Specialty: Infiltration, Skirmishing, and Weaponry. She also possesses minor telepathy, able to communicate with somebody within about a kilometer at most, but potent psychokinetics, able to hurl things as large as a 20th century Cadillac with violent force. Iallyn is adept at infiltrating and conducting covert/stealth operations, often serving at 'point'. She has working knowledge and experience with every known weapon in use by the varied nations on the Earth, and a number that are not known due to their classified natures. She is also proficient at the maintenance and repair of most of these weapons.

Appearance:Slender, petite, yet busty for her size, the 4'9" Iallyn is referred to as a Dark Elf by most. She has charcoal grey, almost black skin and piercing purple eyes with the long pointed earlobes common to elfkind.

History: Unlike fantasy Dark Elves, the Dark Elves of earth are not in conflict with the other races inhabiting the earth, instead remaining a reclusive, subterranean species with fewer than a thousand known living.

Unwilling to remain in the desolate underground caverns and grottos, little Iallyn left the subterranean village of her birth, having been born to some of the first Dark Elves to appear on the Earth, and headed aboveground. She surfaced in what is now known as Arkansas, where she was greeted with contempt and often open hostility by the generally xenophobic residents of the small town she popped up in.

Travelling east, she happened across the United States Army base, Fort Benning Georgia, where she was captured after scaling the fence and exploring the interior. When it was discovered what the tiny elfin woman was capable of doing, she was transferred to a secret NSA facility where she was trained and helped to develop her mental abilities.

Little Iallyn is now a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army, MOS 18 Bravo, a Special Operations Weapon Specialist.

As to the rank thing, a civilian doctor that was drafted could be any rank I suppose, What do you want? Does drafted mean you didn't want to be there also you haven't really applied yourself to getting promotion, then I would say private.  But maybe you were drafted out of necessity and are just good at whatever your do (you are a doctor) then maybe lieutenant.  I think you just need to ask yourself if the captain were to die, not saying he is, would you want to be the new ranking officer giving commands or the private who just has to take them from whoever is?

Name: Aerynis Lydira
Rank: Corporal
Specialty: Doctor with Healing and various defensive magics
Appearance: A slender elf with large, deep green eyes and long crimson hair that would reach the floor unbound.  She generally wears loose upper garments in dark green colors, as well as more practical tight-fitting trousers or such. She hates the uniforms when she is required to wear them.  She moves with a natural grace that tends to draw the eye.
Personality: Generally quiet and patient, Aerynis has had a much shorter temper of late, particularly when she was drafted for her skills as a doctor barely out of school.  Most of the time she is kind, but she has a tendency toward sarcasm when people get out of their depth.  She knows that she isn't the most knowledgeable person around, but at least she admits it when she doesn't know.  Aerynis is also a very closeted lesbian, but thus far has avoided all companionship.
History: Aerynis Lydira was born in a small, unnamed elven enclave.  She had a talent for healing magic, but would likely have lived her life in the enclave if it hadn't been for the fighter plane that crashed nearby.  No one expected the pilot to live, but Aerynis didn't give up, and not only managed to keep the pilot from dying, but also regenerated the nerve damage that he had received in the crash.  When the military retrieved their pilot, they offered to send Aerynis to a school of her choosing to increase her capabilities in the art of healing.  She chose to go to the Lunar Academy of Medical and Magical Healing, and graduated there at the mere age of 20 with the highest honors of her class.  Unfortunately, immediately afterward she was drafted to serve aboard Freya, a fact that has left her somewhat bitter and suspicious of the military.

hey gnoah. I was working on a variant summoner for a follow up to the mage academywhen I saw your plot. If this char sounds okay to you it'd be fun to give the concept a test run in your story

Name: X'ylstom Pazyreal aka  "Stomper"
Rank: Private
Specialty: Close Combat, Infiltration, Binding & Summoning Magic (Forbidden from use under an Executive Order)
Race: Imp
Appearance: Stomper's appearance is purposefully human-average. Short brown hair, light skin, blue eyes. His distinguishing feature is the number 83 tattooed in red ink at the base of his throat. 
Personality: Out of uniform Stomper has his race's love of lighthearted, and not so lighthearted, fun. In combat he likes nothing better than running headfirst into danger to show off his worth although he will never disobey an order. Stomper also has a grim side that tends to surface whenever people ask about what he did before he joined the military
Stomper is an Imp with the weight of the future on his shoulders. Until recently Imps served demon cults by abducting members of the other races. The imps used their knowledge of soul binding to reforge those captured into summoned monsters subservient to their demon overlords.When the demon cults were at last eradicated by the military the question was raised as to how the imps should be handled. Most imps, including Stomper, were only too happy to change allegiance despite their long list of crimes. In the end imps were prohibited from using magic and forced to live in closed communities.  Stomper and a handful of others were allowed the chance to prove themselves in the military on a probationary basis .

Stomper is brash and focused on the future. He still has many of the same qualities that made him valuable to his former masters including fierce loyalty, allegiance to orders and a creatively playful streak.When he isn't in full combat armor carrying out a mission he's fond of reading his favorite new book "10,000 trully tasteless jokes about elves, dwarves, and dead pixies." It was something he picked up to help break the ice with non imps he met. In retrospect, those around him would say he chose poorly.

Name: Samael Veles

Rank: Lieutenant

Specialty: Super-strength, Mesmerism, Aerial Combat (No longer completely applicable since his released form was sealed by the government long before he was commissioned for the maiden flight of the Freya.)

Appearance & Personality: His human appearance is that of a tall, cleanly muscular human male in his mid to late 20s.  Though he is a dragonkin, his slightly enlarged canines are usually hidden since he doesn't usually smile often or speak at great length.  He moves fluidly and is undeniably comfortable in his skin.  He prefers actions to words and often finds an excess of words annoying.  He is a generally distrustful of humans, but willing to work with them to meet his own goals.  He is a stickler for procedure and while usually quiet, does harbor a dark sort of humor. 

Having lived countless centuries undetected by the humans of Old Earth, the transition of the magical into the spotlight of human awareness was an unpleasant change for those of the dragonkin kith.  In the rush to create legislature to account for the new non-human races suddenly thrust into the human world, many things were mishandled.  The dragonkin had been classified as less than human because of their non-humaoid forms and thus were used as resources with no allowances made for their rights.  Once the it was discovered that their mesmerism powers needed direct eye contact to work, measures were taken to neutralize it and his kind had been increasingly pressed into covert, black-ops programs not completely sanctioned by the government.

Luckily, with the Non-humanoid Equality Act of 2048, many of these programs were found out and shut down and full rights were given to those races that were not seen as traditionally humanoid.  Unfortunately, by that time the damage had been done to dragonkin populations and it seemed unlikely that it would ever recover.  Dragonkin are a long-lived race, but not very fertile.  As such, many dragonkin chose to leave the planet in hopes of eventually finding compatible species to renew their race with and start anew on a planet without humans.

Samael's reasons for leaving are more personal.  His memory is a long one and he lost a lot while pressed into the service of the government and still does not trust it fully.  While most of the programs were shut down, he knows not all of them had been.  His hopes were by joining the mission he would be able to get out from under the thumb and watchful eye of a government he could never trust.

Elven form:

Succubus form; a blend between the following:

Name:  Korrua'nae Hunithghymn / Tethumhaxael

Rank:  Private

Race: Succubus (appearing as elf)

Specialty:  Originally started in the fighter pilot programs, she later moved into the more broad spectrum combat pilot and tactical programs, particularly ship-board weapons and ship to ship combat.  As a succubus she is more particularly trained for insertion and covert espionage, though no one else knows.  Decades of practice with shapeshifting and biological studies, she has honed her skill to the degree even the most in depth physicals have found no discrepancy.  She has managed to avoid magical physicals thus far, remaining worried that she might not pass them.

Appearance:  Long red hair reaches to the middle of her back with two pert elfy ears poking out at cute angles.  The most common descriptions given of her include the word "cute" or "kid sister".  Those who've done dogfight simulations with her have rather different words to describe her tenacity in space combat and tactics.

History:  Tethumhaxael was 'born' approximately 200 years ago.  The demons knew that time was growing short and that the mortal races were working systematically to shut down their cults and the center of their power.  She, along with a small handful of others, were trained from an early age to infiltrate the mortal races, to manipulate events such that at least a few of their cults would survive.  In turn, many of the cults had to be betrayed to allow their mortal followers to perish, for the others to live.

After 50 years of training the half dozen that were trained were sent out on their various missions.  Tethumhaxael took the name Korrua'nae Hunithghymn, inserted into one of the elven enclaves of the area we know as Oregon.  Records were forged and she joined mortal society like any other individual recently moved to town.  She found work at a nearby air force base in the chaos surrounding the second great war, helping with manufacturing and maintenance of aircraft, listening to rumors and spreading some of her own.  Few realized how extensive her web of contacts was in and around the air base.

She joined the air force proper in the late 80's, working her way up through to pilot, giving her an in with the officers of the base.  As the cults dwindled and faded, a few managed to survive, acting more like secret societies than the churches they had started out as.  By the time the cult hunts had finished, perhaps five remained.  She pondered what she was to do at that point.  She could quietly withdraw from mortal society and return to her old life, but she had never learned many of the basic lessons of succubi.  In the end, she decided to continue as things were.

Over the following century, she bounced between various branches of the armed services; navy, army, marines and so forth.  Elves were always promoted slowly, given their generally long life spans and different view on how the world worked.  When the military space program started, she finished her tour with the marines and signed on with the deep space navy.

Once more, she has managed to work her way up to private, and seldom talks about her previous tours.  For the most part, many of them were quiet, simply training and drilling.  Unlike many others, when she heard about the experimental ship, she did everything she could to get her name on the roster for the crew, sending petitions up the chain.  She had been piloting light strike craft in Mars orbit for a decade and spent another five years piloting light cruisers around the Sol system.  The thought of a completely new ship with new engines and the like sounded perfect, given that her sisters were beginning to look for her now, wondering why she never returned.
