Would you like to help me with my story?
I need character enhancement and would love some good writers to help me play around with some of my characters.I have this setting (the plot below has been stripped down to the bare bones, I have more narrative juice than this, if you'd like to know more about anything
please ask, I love talking about this).
Michael, one of the seven archangels, acting on God's behalf, has instigated Armegeddon.
Heaven declares war on modern-day Earth, and starts with Michael himself dropping one of Earth's last nuclear warheads directly onto Jerusalem, in an ugly attempt to punish those there for their "crimes against God".
A very small group of angels, cast out of Heaven years prior but not damned enough to be sentenced to Hell, have been wandering the Earth and become enamoured with humanity. These few have taken up arms along with humanity against the invading hordes of angels. For different reasons, these angels have a love of humanity that replaces the love of the almighty in their hearts. Becoming the figureheads for humanity's resistance against the forces of Heaven, these few have been weighed with the responsibility of stemming the angelic tide, and are also the targets of a plot by the agents of Hell, whom look upon this new war as a business venture...
There are portents of a new figurehead coming, also. This person, according to all sources, is either the Antichrist or the second coming of Christ himself.
These are the characters I would like played out by skilled RPers. You can explore the character as much as you would like, I would like to see them stretched out and played with. Please bear in mind, the details listed below are the "bare bones" of the character, if you like, and if you feel anything naturally coming to you whilst RPing, please add it in.
I like to think there are openings for players of all orientations here. You will notice that next to Orientation in brackets, I have put a name. This is the name of that characters main love interest. This can be deviated from within reason. Also, for the two demons so far, "Deviant",as you can imagine, means they will do anything and everything with a hole or cock-like appendage.(is this pansexual??)Ramael
Mixed race. Thick, brown messy hair and a deep brown trenchcoat.
I will fill in these details after I've posted initially.Raguel TakenRace:
Mid-thirties. Mixed race. Thick, black hair. Strong, proud, Roman features. When his wings are visible, they are jet black feathered. He wears a toga, underneath which is a set of black leather vest, gauntlets and shinguards. He is barefoot. When pushed in battle, or in extreme situations, a laurel wreath spiked with thorns crowns his head, sometimes spiking his flesh and causing him to bleed a little.Personality:
Raguel is the self-proclaimed "leader" of the rebel angels on Earth. He is a dreamer, and sees that humanities light will outshine the brightest star in Heaven. It is rumoured he was once one of the seven archangels...either way, he reserves a particular hatred when fighting angelic opponents. He has had a relationship with Michael that we on earth would call a homosexual relationship, but in Heaven would have been quite different. It's rumoured this got him kicked out of Heaven. ErelusRace:
Early 20's. Caucasian. Lean and young looking, Erelus wears a casual black suit and trousers, and Raybans, and wears his hair cut short. Doesn't have wings.Personality:
Youngest of the outcast angels, Erelus spent a lot of time in 50's America, and grew to love the "Apple Pie" vision of the country in its heyday. As the years went by, he eventually met Cate and eventually fell in love with her. The two became tied as the war unfolded, but due to the responsibilities put on both, their relationship is becoming strained. Cate Mary Allister TakenRace:
Your typical American belle (feel free to colour her however you want within that guide).Personality:
Cate used to be an easy going, happy-go-lucky girl. She had a career in modelling, and was picked up by a men's lifestyle magazine called Sapiens for a two-year contract. She quickly became a "poster girl" appearing in adverts and in sexy calendars. She met Erelus and fell into a pure and incredibly romantic relationship with him. When the invasion began, it triggered off a bizarre chain of events that led the poster girl to not only writing for Sapiens, but eventually becoming a partner of the media corporation that owned Sapiens. This corporation became the single largest pro-humanity media organisation on the planet, and wanted Cate as their figurehead. It carries a large responsibility of broadcasting hope to humanities forces, and keeping lines of communication open. Now Cate, gone from bubblegum poster girl to media partner, has at least part of the world's weight on her shoulders. Not to mention an angel for a boyfriend, and he's absent half the time...Lamia TakenRace:
Every definition of a Demoness you have ever heard. I leave Lamia's description completely within the player's hands, apart from one thing. She has to be hot. Smoking magma hot.Personality:
Serving demon Prince Ba'thekt, Lamia has, over the years, perverted the most stoic monks and seduced the purest of preists. She is a prized succubus, one of the best at what she does, and she knows it. She has been sent to Earth on seperate occasions over the planet's history, and it was one of these encounters she met Ramael. The succubus and the outcasted angel took an immediate disliking to each other, expressed in the only way two age-old enemies could-they fucked each other, literally, nearly to death. After that, despite having many demon lovers and several mortal ones, she always found herself interested in where Ramael was, and "accidentally" visited him many times. She's not in love with him, not by a long shot, but there is a bead of affection there, buried underneath the layers of perversity and bile. She has a freedom in Hell, but is still tied to her demon Prince, who uses her as he sees fit (literally). Since the outbreak of the war between Heaven and Earth, Lamia has been instructed by her Prince to observe the rebel angels closely, a task Lamia quietly jumped at, if only so she could tease Ramael again. Prince Ba'thektRace:
Again, I leave this to the player.Personality:
The outbreak of the war between Heaven and Earth has left those in Hell mildly confused. The humans seem to have taken the demon's place and are fighting back against angels...Ba'thekt has determined that there must be something to exploit here, and is determined that he, of all demon Princes (who are in direct and violent competition with each other on a regular basis in Hell) will be the one who gains. Despite his own perversities and wanton sexual rampages amongst his demon and demoness subjects, he gets possessive over Lamia and begrudges sending her to Earth, even though she is one of his most useful subjects.Michael Race:
Every description of a typical angel you have heard of. Whatever the player makes up for Michael, the one thing to make sure of is that he looks MORE of an angel than the other angels. He is not only an archangel, but Gods Right Hand.Personality:
Declaring war on humanity seemed to be the only choice. Another Noah's flood wouldn't work, because humans have the technology to save themselves from a flood now. Michael is a devout Heaven purist in the purest sense of the word. His past relationship with Raguel was one of beauty, but Michael is trying to strive past that now so he can summon the will to kill his former lover should the time come. He needs to defeat and kill Raguel to validate his entire crusade against Earth. In this sense, Michael may very well be quite the closet case.Saul JohnsonRace:
Mixed race. Saul is an incredibly good looking man. His beauty has only been enhanced by the Serum...(majoritively upto the player)Pesonality:
A basic soldier in humanities armies, Saul was always a dreamer and a thinker. Friends of his would often comment on how Saul would get into fights for seemingly offensive thinking out loud, only to talk his would-be opponent round, eventually have drinks with him, and end up becoming best friends. Before Saul enlisted, he spent a lot of time working in charity, and has a long list of ex-girlfriends. Now he has taken the Serum, he is a more advanced soldier and thinker-but also his other emotions and base feelings are enhanced, too. He was given an honourary promotion by Cate Allister herself, a treat for the soldiers on the front line. Saul instantly fell in love with her, and managed to find himself ways of working with her.
A rebel angel (by the name of Meltior) had approached Saul, and offered him a gift. This gift was a combined solution, apparantly made from fruit from the Tree of Knowledge and bark from the Tree of Life, in Eden. Meltior had made a successful venture to the Garden, and managed to salvage these things in order to bring humanity a compound(that Meltior is calling simply the Serum) that would enhance them and put them on equal terms with the angels.
For reasons best known to the rebel angels, they chose Saul to be the first to try it out.
Saul is, for the reasons of this story, either the Antichrist or the Second Coming of Christ, I will leave it to the player to see where they go with it.IsrafilRace:
Swathed in robes or swaddles of many layers of silk. A beautiful, dark skinned head with piercing grey eyes is usually the only thing visible. There is creative license here. Tempted as I am to give you my rendition of what is underneath Israfil's garments, I would rather the player who played her decide.Personality:
Known for casting of signals to other angels and to humans, Israfil, called the "hornblower" in some religeons, abused these powers and relayed information to mankind that they should not have heard. According to Heaven, that is. Metatron, the voice of god, cast her out. Unofficially, Metatron was always worried that her "voice" was stronger than his, but this is labelled as conspiracy by the legions of Heaven.
Due to this, Israfil's calm reserve is punctured with blotches of fierce anger and steely determination. Although enamoured of Raguel's "vision", she is more realistic about a war with Heaven.
It is rumoured that, before either angel fell, Israfil had a more than simply angelic affection for Raguel. Although torn that she secretly knew about his and Michael's relationship, she still harboured a flame for him many years on. She is worried this affection may be a weakness to her, but doesn't want to rule out her emotions and make her as indifferent and as anal as the angels she left in Heaven.Original characters
If none of the player slots I've written seem popular, I will swap this for a setting of player-created OC's, with only vague guidelines, categories going thus:-
And I may make another category for the Human+ if this OC option proves popular.
There is lots more to come....
