The Great Evil ~{{Slots Still Open}}~
« on: January 26, 2011, 07:57:15 AM »
Not all of the Olympians or Sarians have been spoken for. Feel free to apply.  :-)

Changed the title.

OOC
Characters
IC

Setting: Fantasy realm (think D&Dish). A world called Earth. It’s currently experiencing a “Golden Age.” A time of peace, harmony, stability, and prosperity. All across the land co-exist races of many kinds. Minor battles ensue amongst rivals but nothing akin to war. It is Spring time. -- It's been brought to my attention that this needs more explanation. In terms of transportation: horses, carriages, big fucking tamed hawk companion, ect. It's really up to you, sans technology. And in terms of cities, they are all still there as in normal Earth, however just translated to Fantasy realm. Instead of a skyscraper, a dryad village may have an incredibly tall tree like in Ferngully. Or a castle instead of the White House, ect. Actual people are not the same, though. Barack Obama doesn't exist, ect. If you have any questions or confusions, please feel free to message me. I have an open door policy concerning discussions on the RP or your characters.

Plot/Objectives: When the Universe was created, there existed the Primordial Deities. From the Primordial Deities came the Titans, and from the Titans came the Olympians and the Sarians. After many years the Primoridal Deities fell into a state of torpor and the Olympians defeated the Titans for ethereal control.


Prometheus had created mankind and for millions of years before the birth of current mortal kind, civilization on Earth existed solely on the continent of Atlantis. Atlantis was a utopia and the Atlanteans were a very advanced group of mortals. However, during this time the Olympians and Sarians warred amongst each other, their middle ground being Earth. From the loins of their great hatred sprung forth a great evil force so powerful it could destroy the world. He came to be known as Angnhil. The Olympians were unable to find a way to destroy Angnhil but didn’t want the Sarians getting a hold of it so they locked it in a prison far below Earth level. But as the price paid for locking Angnhil away, Atlantis was carried along with it.

Well many millennia later, the Fates were doing their daily duty of professing people’s lives when they got that fairly common chill of foreboding. However, this day the chill was much more severe than normal. They went quickly to their Well of Divination and suddenly saw the error of the Olympians.

The Fates went immediately to Zeus to explain what they’d seen. They told him that the caged evil was beginning to awaken. They told him of the different outcomes from the Well. If the Olympians interfered, they’d be able to defeat the evil force but the clash of such extreme powers would destroy the world. Zeus thought long and hard about the Fates’ proclamation.

Zeus assembled all the Olympians in his palace on Mt. Olympus. He told all the Olympians to pick their favored followers and report back to him. Once they had reported back, Zeus decided upon the mortals he felt were best suited for this challenge according to what the Fates had decreed. That’s when the dreams began…

Rules: All the normal RPing rules apply. Please check grammar and spelling and read over your posts thoroughly before posting. No God modding. Any rules you are unclear of, please feel free to ask. I ask for intermediate to advanced RPers/writers for this RP. If you turn out to be bad at RPing or you can’t follow the rules, I reserve the right to terminate your character. You will be warned repeatedly before such actions are taken. All characters will be reviewed and accepted by me. Instead of denying a character, I’ll work with you on things I’m not satisfied with.

IMPORTANT: All characters need to decide upon a particular God or Goddess that they favor and worship above all others. You may not pick one of the Primordial Deities, Titans, Lesser Titans, Zeus, Lesser Olympians, Fates, or Vakortur as your favored God. ONLY ONE GOD/DESS PER CHARACTER. NO GOD/DESS MAY BE USED MORE THAN ONCE. Post early to get your favorite. Once your character has been approved, you can post it in the character thread and begin posting in the OOC thread. Before posting in the IC thread, please wait for me to write up a recurring dream your character keeps having unless I've personally told you that you can post without being visited in dream.

Any mortal race can be chosen. If you’re unsure whether your preferred race is acceptable, feel free to ask. You’re welcome to make up your own race. If you do so, please include a detailed description of that race. All Elven races are considered mortal.

You must be an Earth bound race. You can't be an alien from another planet.

You can not be a demi-god. I'm sorry. But you will be much more powerful than any normal being if it's any consolation.

Ideas to help decide upon a race

In order to use magic, there must be an element from that spell's school of magic nearby. For instance, if you want to cast a fire spell, there must be some form of fire nearby. Same with water, shadows, earth, ect. The more of the element around, the greater the spell will be.

You can have more than 1 character if you're able to keep up with them.

No one line posts.

Do not post any OOC comments in the IC thread.

Depending upon the number of players, there will be 1 or more players able to have an evil God/dess as their favored God/dess. This will spice some things up.

I'm allowing everyone to have a bag of holding to start with.

Please use the following for your character profile:

Dark blue shirt with long billowy sleeves clamped down at the forearm by the leather and steel bracers. A forest green open vest with tails running almost down to the back of his knees. A golden head band worn across his forehead and above his ears to help keep the long white hair out of his face.

Equipment and abilities:

Bracers of protection: magically gives equivalent protection to full plate mail armor.
Dagger: just a standard 8" bladed double edged dagger.
Wand of force: his primary weapon this 12" long approx. 1" diameter piece of polish yew. It’s standard ability is a nearly invisible blade of force which can cut through most anything not protected by enchantments and functions as an enchanted bastard sword. Secondary abilities: by using charges it can create force walls and force bubbles.

Works Magic but does not use specified spells: uses fire, air, water, earth, and spirit in different combinations to produce desired results is only limited by imagination and available energy mostly personal, but can tap into flows of energy across the world like rivers of magical energy only visible to those that use it.

Gerik was born on a ship. He grew up on the sea for many years, learning the ways of a sailor and a fighter and learning to worship Poseidon. After a hard fought battle with pirates the ship he had grown up on was sunk, and his family killed with it. Gerik, a mere fourteen years old, had managed to escape death and swam away from his sinking home. Weary and near-death Gerik was found hours later by another ship and was taken aboard. He was dropped off at the first port the ship came accross. There Gerik remained for six years, working as a guard and searching for what to do with himself. In those six years he learned the arts of horsemanship, and how to wield the spear. Gerik spent nearly all of his savings for a custom made weapon, a beautifully crafted trident-spear that Gerik wished to use in honor of the God he worshiped. It wasnt long after that when a man came into town, seeking to hire a crew for a newly built ship. He found out that Gerik not only had past experience, but that Gerik also worshiped Poseidon. Gerik was convinced to joining the crew, and was once more sailing the world. He has spent three years on the Sea's Wrath, sailing all accross the known world, all the while paying tribute to Poseidon.

- Jewelry: Has a quartz crystal that is wrapped on one end with leather to hang from. She wears it on her neck at all times, and stores/draws energy from it. She has considered piercing an ear but must carve the perfect earring for it first.

* Race: Feline Anthro (Iberian Lynx)

* Race Description: Stands digigrade (legs like a feline) with pads/ retractable claws on hands and feet. Covered in fur with a short tail. Her face if that of the felines', complete with muzzle and cheek fluff.

* Physical Abilities/Limitations: She is strong and agile, well versed in hand to hand combat, and a good hunter. She is not fast compared to many and not as strong as many, and her short size can be a hindrance. She get tired easily as well. Tracking and music are great pastimes for her, as well as crafting instruments to barter with should she need. Animals tend to like her, even some prey animals if she works to appear nonthreatening. If she can get the idea across they might help her if they choose.

Background

Aleka was born with two other siblings. Her mother and father were both Lynxes as were all three of the triplets. They lived in a loose co-operation with other inhabitants of the wood but generally the family lived on their own. Her mother was a great musician and her father a grand hunter. Together they taught their children everything they knew. Aleka was the best at tracking and hunting although she could hold her own in musical skill as well. Never would she be as good a musician as either of her siblings though, who went on to become famous in their own right. On the night of becoming an Adult Aleka was given her second name and sent off into the world to make her own way and form her own family although she visits with parents and siblings from time to time.

Not long after she was on her own she decided to dedicate her life to the worship of Pan. When she did she discovered the quartz crystal, and swore to treasure it always.

Socioeconomic Class/Standing

* Class: Hunter/Tracker/Instrument Maker

* Weapons: Generally uses her own hands and claws to fight. She has a staff/walking stick that she traded for that has a blade hidden in one end and can be exposed to use the staff more like a glaive. Also has a hunting/skinning knife if that needed to be used.

Kaii, your profile is excellent and approved. You don't have to be more specific about your birth place. I use these profiles mostly to help others get a feeling for the type of world/realm we're playing in.

Vergil, Aphrodite will be reserved for you.  :-)

Edited to put second page notes: We're still looking for 1 or 2 people to play disciples of the Sarian God/desses. I would like to get at least 3 or 4 more people total to join.

Basic Attributes

* Given Name: Antheia Aiolos.

* Gender: Female

* Appearance:

- Age: 27-years-old.

- Height: 5 feet and 7 inches.

- Weight: 145 pounds.

- Hair Color/Style: Her hair is an odd dark-gray that is long and often unruly since she doesn't pay attention to it when she is concentrated on her work. She keeps it held back with a circlet she wears on her head and pulls it into a pony tail.

- Eye Color: Pale blue.

- Makeup: N/A.

- Clothing: A simple white tunic that reaches her knees. It has been dirtied by her work in forging and crafting, leather sandals and a gray cotton clock she wears at all times to cover her form.

- Jewelry: A simple fire pendant that she crafted herself in order to show her devotion to Hephaestus, the God of Forgery and Fire. It glows with a fire due to the effort and will she exerted into it in order to show her worth to the God.

* Race: Mortal Human.

* Race Description: Does not have any born powers or magic at all but when determined, they can do amazing things out of sheer willpower. Live short lives and are the prime source of worship for the Gods and Goddesses.

* Physical Abilities/Limitations: She is smart and quick-witted, always thinking on her feet and is sure to be at least a step ahead of everyone. She is fast and agile, having quick reflexes. A master forger, she can make amazing weapons or jewelry or craft if given the  proper material and time. She can even make things that shouldn't be possible to be made but she can when she puts enough effort and her will to the time of building it.

Antheia is not strong at all due to her small frame and does not have any training whatsoever for fighting. She is easily scared by things and is quick to become nervous when something she cannot understand happens. Antheia would rather hide and face battle. Easily frustrated when things do not go her way or if it becomes too stressful. Antheia depends too much on her intellect to get her out of messes.

Background

Born on the Island of Crete to a large family of simple farmers, Antheia was shown at an early age to be an intelligent thing who thirsted for knowledge. Though not allowed to have an education due to both her gender and the lack of funds her family had, her parents struggled to give her answers and help her think. It was disapproved by some people there that Antheia was being taught things when she should be getting ready for marriage and housekeeping but she was happy and grateful to be given a chance to study and think. She helped around the house when not studying or practicing with her limited education.

When she was 16-years-old, as her parents left to tend to the animals at the hill, she discovered a forger passing by her home carrying their crafted items that she never saw before. She asked, out of curiosity, what it was and the person explained her what they did for a living and how.

Charmed by the idea of being able to create and build things, Antheia begged her parents to be taught by a relatives of theirs who lived somewhere at the island in another place who was also a forger and a good one at that. They reluctantly allowed her to go when she turned 17-years-old a year later and she flourished under the eccentric but brilliant man's care. She got the handle of forging a few months into her stay with the man and became a follower of Hephaestus during her time there with her relative. She created the fire pendant to show her loyalty to Hephaestus and that was the first time she exerted her will into something.

She studied her ability and has been trying to do it in all her works ever since but has only been able to do it once or twice in her life when the item she is making is truly and utterly important for herself or for someone else. Nevertheless, her relative was impressed with the girl and knew great things were to come for her one day. When the man peacefully passed away in his sleep, she took over his business of crafts making and has been living there in the town ever since.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Socioeconomic Class/Standing

* Class: Craft Maker/Weapon Forger.

* Religion: Disciple of Hephaestus.

* Place of Birth: Island of Crete.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inventory

* Weapons: None bus she is planning ambitiously to find a way to create a clasp that when it is on her cloak it can make her invisible to the eye when she fastens it on herself. However, it doesn't stop people from hearing her and she hasn't solved that problem yet.

Basic Attributes

* Given Name:  Arya Angelicus

* Gender:  Female

* Appearance  ((The only elf woman pic I actually liked that would fit here.))
- Age:  125
- Height:  5 foot 8 inches
- Weight:  135 pounds
- Hair Color/Style:  Silver, long and flowing over her back
- Eye Color:  Deep sea green
- Makeup: She wears exotic perfumes specially blended to instill feelings of desire and lust for her but not to the point people forget what they are about or anything.  Beyond that she needs none or wishes none usually.
- Clothing:  If she could get away with it, Arya would prefer to remain in the nude at all times but barring that she wears as little as she can get away with in polite society.  Skimpy and lacy affairs that show off her curves rather than conceals them.  Translucent robes, silk undergarments, things like that.
- Jewelry: Two small earrings and a piercing through her clit are the only things she usually keeps on at all times, all of which are made of silver.

* Race:  Light elf

* Race Description:  Being light elf means she can see in the dark, infrared vision or the power to see some heat patterns, (not near the level of a Drow though,) and longevity as well as a dexterous and agile body that's stronger than it appears.  While not a warrior, Arya is faster and stronger than a normal human.

* Physical Abilities/Limitations:  There isn't really a lot that limits Arya other than her lack of warrior trained muscles and mind.  Her mind is sharp as a tack and she knows how to use her good looks to get what she wants, but beyond that there isn't much out of the ordinary with this unusual elf.  Most elves don't flaunt themselves as she does in the name of her goddess, but again Arya likes to push the boundaries a bit....a lot when she can.

Background  Arya Angelicus was always pushing things too far when she was growing up.  Her parents had no idea where she got her attitude from, but they knew where she belonged given her very open nature and her sexually charged personality.  Her parents, though sad to let her leave, helped her to become a member of Aphrodite's growing church in a local chapter in their home state, though that involved moving to the city of Chicago.  Still, Arya had found her calling and had been happy ever since the move.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Socioeconomic Class/Standing

* Class:  Cleric and sacred priestess.

* Religion:  Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Lust, and Desire.

* Place of Birth:  In the forests of the state of Illinois.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inventory  Potion bottles full of healing liquids, aphrodisiacs, perfumes, massage oils, and other things of the like Arya keeps on hand for every occasion.  Beyond that clothes that accentuate her figure and toys she keeps in a bag of holding on her belt.

* Weapons: Being a member of Aphrodite's church, Arya wields a whip that not only flays skin from a person's body but it is enchanted to also instill large doses of pleasure that only stacks up each time they get hit with it.

Vergil, your profile looks great and is accepted. The world is Earth as you know it today but set in a fantasy realm, meaning a D&D like setting and whatnot. The time period is present day. The map just shows the position of where Atlantis used to be before it was pulled asunder. I figured out last night, as the North arrow is pointing downward, that the map is upside down and I haven't gotten a chance to fix it yet.

I'd be interested, with a character that is a worshipper of Persephone.

How's this?

Basic Attributes

* Given Name: Phaedra

* Gender: Female

* Appearance:

- Age: 23
- Height: 5ft 9inches
- Weight: 130lbs
- Hair Color/Style: long hair a rich golden brown, which falls down her back in rich waves.  She usually wears it tied back, and is constantly tucking unruly tendrils back behind her ears
- Eye Color:  a deep hazel that in certain lights looks gold, and other times verges upon green
- Makeup: (If applicable)wears very little makeup, just a little mascara to enhance her naturally long lashes, and a slick of rose coloured lipstick.
- Clothing: she wears whatever is comfortable, and as she is usually tending plants, often is just in simple pants and loose fitting shirts.
- Jewelry: (If applicable)She often has flowers threaded into her hair, which is the best jewelry to her but always has a silver filigree pendant on a leather thong around her neck 

* Race: human with a quarter dryad 

* Race Description: Dryads are tree nymphs

* Physical Abilities/Limitations: Phaedre is quite fit as she spends most of her time outdoors in the garden tending plants, as she has what is known as a ‘green thumb’ Plants thrive under her care, even ones that look half dead will revive if she cares for them, and her skills are much sought after by all who live in the area.  She is not a fighter, has no skills with weapons, and abhors bloodshed, preferring to make peace through discourse. She thrives in spring and summer, but  finds life difficult in autumn and especially winter.

Background

Phaedre has no idea that her grandmother was a dryad, all she knows is that her mother was found in the woods as a baby, as if she had been abandoned.  Both she and her mother have an affinity with the woods, her mother in particular, whereas Phaedre’s affinity is broader, encompassing all plants.
She has lived in the English countryside all her life, growing and nurturing all things green. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Socioeconomic Class/Standing

* Class: Gardener

* Religion: worshipper of Persephone

* Place of Birth: England

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inventory

* Weapons: She has no weapons, but her ability to make things grow could be enhanced by some magical means, so that she could use the plants around her to bind, or strangle, if necessary.

Incomplete, but I have to get ready for works and leave soons. Will work on it some more later. >.>


Attributes
* Given Name:
Raziel

* Gender:
Male

* Appearance:

- Age:
Twenty-three
- Height:
5’9”
- Weight:
145lbs
- Hair Color/Style:
Copper / style varies, sometimes it is parted, others tossled, and now and then it may be ruffed and spiked up.
- Eye Color:
Copper
- Makeup: (If applicable)
- Clothing:
He dresses often in tighter and lighter fitted clothing, nothing that would provide much comfort as he likes to move freely and also doesn’t like leaving his opponents capable of grappling onto much from him.
- Jewelry:

Race:
Tainted Human

* Race Description:
Divine touched, whether out of admiration, scorn, or something other. Their limitations as ordinary humans are extended, but in the end, they still are only human. The term tainted often comes from the fear or envy ordinary humans may have when perceiving such beings. Most of those whom are ‘tainted’ can usually be spotted from their abnormities.

* Physical Abilities/Limitations:
 Raziel is fit, however he isn't much physically strong nor does he rely on the use of his own strength. His body is agile and quick and with his training, he often uses that of others strength against them in physical confrontation. The lack of sight(if he doesn't want to go crazy) has also lowered his endurance, so he isn't the hardiest of combatants. Not being able to see hasn't limited him, if anything it may improved his own training through the years as he no longer has a need for sight to fight. He can 'see' perfectly fine of everything going on around him relying on his remaining senses.

* Tainted Gift:
Eyes of Chaos: A blessing or a curse, this ability presents answers to absolute truths. To see through illusions, pinpoint weaknesses, one may even think of it as a ’third’ eye. The limit? Insanity, on the wielder that is. This is something Raziel can’t control either and the only way he made it this far is by concealing his own eyes and living a life mostly in darkness. A tough road, but this too is something a Monk must overcome. 

Background

Raziel hadn't always bared the Eyes of Chaos, in fact, in his younger and nonreligious years he was your average Joe human. He came from a normal upbringing, a simple child of commoners. He has no fellow siblings or well, any that he may know about. His reasons of joining an monastery were also of his own; however another side of that story is the fact he didn't want to become too much of a burden upon his family with his father growing ill and the opportunities of labor also being scarce. Strategic escape from life's hardships? Perhaps.

But out of the frying pan and into the oven, as they would say. Out of all the temples one could devote themselves to, Raziel ended up with the one towards Zanaen. Even then he was still a young youth, a teenager, but perhaps ignorance in itself couldn't be bliss. His entire life was thrown into disarray, but maybe that too should been expected. Educated in the teachings of Chaos, trained in combat to be able to defend those principals he learned, and cast into hardship that often tested the waters of insanity for those fellow religious followers. Raziel's life was a live or die one, pitted against beasts, fellow apprentices, it was all more than enough to warp his own psychology on life.

One may even wondered how such a surviving devote may even happen to fall from grace of a 'normal' human being? Again, his wasn't by choice, it was from the madness of the Temple. Poor Raziel was cast into a room, where he was suppose to meditate and pay homage to his deity. He wasn't even allowed to leave till he had, as they may say, a vision. Perhaps this too was one of the steps of becoming a full fledge monk, but with his nerves and all he went through at still a young age, he just snapped.

Oh, sweet insanity, perhaps that in itself brought a blessing to Raziel or even a curse, depending how those wish to perceive it. The young man went on a rage, destroying everything within the room, art work from the ages defaced, book of valuable information ruined. Such instants would most likely otherwise result in death in any other given temple, none would be as bold to go about wrecking everything in such a 'holy' building. For Raziel, he was rewarded(if it can be called that), maybe the Deity found humor in his antics, maybe he was angered, only Zanaen would know the answer to such; however, when the other monks finally released Raziel from his captivity within that room, they were stunned as well.

Skin holding a golden hue, slitted snake eyes, and an aura of destruction around his entire being. The taint was there, though Raziel wasn't. The poor young man was on the verge of losing all mental sanity, now riddled with the touching of a divine's power. His eyes could see it, multiple answers riddled into one, could pursue the lifespan of those monks, their intentions, their hidden motives and agendas. He wanted to rip his eyes from his skull, but they didn't allow him. He was subdued, sedated, and later trained not to use his eyes once they ran several theorize tests upon him. Though they didn't injure him, such may be considered a greater blasphemy with one who received a 'blessing.'

Over those next extended years Raziel has lived a life of darkness, again trained to fight without relying on his eyes, how to use his other senses to perceive his surroundings. In addition to his training, he was forced to leave the monastery to broaden his own knowledge and to increase his experience in the world around him.  Insane to cast a blind man out? Why of course, such teachings of Zanaen may bring applause; but even if it wasn't normal to other's perspectives, there was still a greater principal of all. Raziel's survival on his own would only prove that he was truly chosen by Zanaen, to carry a weight heavier than many may expect.

Well, on that welcoming note, here's my CS, finally hammered into something close to adequate (we hope, lol). Looking forward to your  critique, Narianna.

Basic Attributes

* Given Name: Zedd Witlock

* Gender: Male

* Appearance:
- Age: 26
- Height: 5'10
- Weight: 148 lbs
- Hair Color/Style: Dark black hair with shockingly blond tips, cut and cropped short and neat
- Eye Color: Blue
- Makeup: N/A
- Clothing: Usually wears a simple, thick, dark blue vest worn open over his bare chest, and a pair of heavy, baggy knee-length shorts with a pair of ankle-cuffed leather boots and (occasionally) a pair of snug, cuffed leather gloves
- Jewelry: (If applicable) Wears a plain silver band with an image of a wolf etched into its surface on his right ring finger, and a single earring consisting of a small piece of cut-smooth amethyst on a short chain in his left ear.

* Race: Human

* Race Description: Dangerously clever, moderately evolved primates

* Physical Abilities/Limitations: Reasonably physically fit, Zedd has the average speed and strength of a normal human male with no outstanding or remarkable physical abilities, but he is surprisingly deft with magic, particularly shadows, earth, and wind. He doesn't often seek out violence or conflict more serious than an old fashioned, down-and-dirty bar fight, but he is more than willing to stand up to someone he feels is threatening or bullying someone innocent or weaker than themselves. Zedd possesses little in the way of martial arts training, but is a formidable brawler and a capable knife-fighter, and years of practice has made him an excellent marksman with his primary weapon, a slingshot.

Background

Zedd was born in Vancouver, Canada, the only son of a wealthy merchant and his wife. From a young age, Zedd felt an intense discomfort at seeing his parents' callous disregard for those less fortunate, and chafed at the many rules and protocols that seemed to have no purpose other than to keep him shackled under his parents' thumbs. His childhood was largely spent under the care of various nannies and governesses, and when he was old enough, tutors. His parents ensured their little heir was thoroughly educated in as many subjects as could be fit into a day, including history, the sciences, and magic. As Zedd would later bitterly recall, it was one of the few decent things his parents ever did for him.

During his sixteenth year, he snuck out of his family's home and hitched his way south across America down to Mexico. His parents made token efforts to recover him, but were more concerned with silencing any hint of scandal than reuniting with their son; a few months after his disappearance, they held a quiet funeral with an empty casket and returned to their aristocratic routine.

After reaching Mexico, Zedd bounced around from town to town, usually finding simple work with local construction crews or merchant caravans. For Zedd, the sheer freedom of going where he wished whenever he pleased was tantamount to paradise. The next six years were largely uneventful, the monotony of brutal daily labor interrupted only by the occasional bar brawl or street fight, until Zedd came to a small town called San Lobos. It was there he met a young woman named Maria, a raven-haired beauty who ran a small orphanage dedicated to her patron goddess, Artemis, and she convinced him to become a sort of general handyman for the dilapidated old children's home. The children quickly grew to love him, and he them, and a passionate romance soon blossomed between Zedd and Maria.

Unfortunately, one stormy night, a wild lightning strike caused a fire to break out in the orphanage's attic. The blaze spread quickly, and before anyone could react, several of the older children -- as well as Maria -- were swallowed up by the inferno. Zedd and many of the townsmen worked to save as many of the children as they could, but the home was soon lost to the flames. He was forced to watch with the rest of the town as the remains of the orphanage burned to cinders.

Over the next few months, Zedd rebuilt the orphanage and became the children's teacher and guardian. It's been almost a year now since the night of the fire, and Zedd's dreams have slowly become more disturbing with every passing night...

* Class: Teacher

* Religion: Worships Artemis

* Place of Birth: Vancouver, Canada

Inventory

* Weapons: Zedd carries a small but powerful slingshot with a rather sizable supply of steel ball bearings, a simple 6" dagger, a rudimentary magnifying glass and a long length of thin, strong fishing line.

Wonderful profile, Star! You're approved. :) Go ahead and post it in the Character Thread and I'll try to get a dream up for you sometime tomorrow.

P.S. *looks at your avatar* Just the other day I saw online where you can get a HUGE gummy bear as big as your head! Not to mention the 5 pound bag of blue raspberry gummies. I'm tempted. Very tempted...

Heh, marvy. Thank you kindly, Narianna; I'll go fire it up over in the Char thread, then call it a night.

And to be honest, I've never been such a gummie fan, myself. I just thought that  little fella was adorably psychotic, and decided to bring him home with me. Although, five pounds of bue raspberry DOES sound all kindsa delish.

Basic Attributes

* Given Name: Anthimus

* Gender: Male

* Appearance: Left:  Human Look/Right: Transformed Look

- Age: 21
- Height: 6'0
- Weight: 220 lbs
- Hair Color/Style: Black/ Slightly messy, wavy at shoulder length
- Eye Color: Left eye Red/Right eye Black
- Makeup: White Face paint covering almost his entire face with simple black designs around his eyes and lips.
- Clothing: Usually seen wearing a black hooded coat that reaches down to his feet.  Black skin-tight leather pants and boots with steel plating covering it.  He wears no shirt under his coat.
- Jewelry: Golden Pendant

* Race: Broodling

* Race Description: Half Human, Half Dragon.  Crossbreed usually with the appearance of a humanoid with scales and/or other dragon like features.

* Physical Abilities:
Transmogrification: Capable of transforming any part of his body into a more Dragon like appearance at will, such as turning his hands into claws, sprouting wings, or covering most of his body in its scales.  His Wings grant him the ability to fly.  His scales (specifically the scales on his hands and arms) are as hard as steel, capable of deflecting most physical attacks and some minor attack spells.  His claws are just as hard as his scales, allowing him to easily slash through wood and stone.
As a Human, Anthimus has a greater strength, stamina, and agility of a normal human with an athletic build.  He can last twice as long than most humans while partaking in strenuous activity and hard labor. Also due to his Dragon Blood, he possesses a high tolerance to heat, being able to stick his hand into a campfire without getting burned.
While Fully Transformed: His strength, stamina, and agility is almost doubled.
Limitations/Weaknesses/Drawbacks: Anthimus can only transform his whole body when he is extremely angry.  When fully transformed though, his rage causes him to go completely berserk and attack anything and anyone within his area.  While his arms can act as his shield, Anthimus is still vulnerable to physical weapons anywhere else on his body.

Background

Born of a Human mother and a Father Dragon, Anthimus has been an outcast since his childhood in his home village.  The adults were so afraid of him, they would tell stories to their children of Anthimus being a demon child and that they shouldn't come near him.  Due to this the only friend he's ever known was his mother.  She tried her best to make a life for them, but the villagers even shunned her for being "tainted" by a Dragon.  Anthimus's father was killed before he was born, not giving him the chance to even know him.  The only thing that was left of his father was a pendant that his mother wore all the time.

When Anthimus turned 12, he managed to make a friend of a village girl who didn't see him as scary.  For a time he finally knew what it felt like to have a real friend, but the feeling wasn't going to last.  Some months later, the girl suddenly became gravely ill and passed away.  When Anthimus attempted to see her one last time, the villagers automatically blamed him for her death, thinking that he brought a plague that would eventually take all of them.  Out of shear fear and paranoia, the villagers chained and bounded him at the village center with the intent of killing him to prevent the plague.  His mother attempted to stop the villagers, but her pleas only enticed the villagers even more, this time throwing the blame, and stones at her.  The riot became so intense, the villagers ended up stoning Anthimus's mother to death, forcing him to witness the whole event.

With the sight of his mother's dead body before him, Anthimus couldn't take it any longer and snapped into a fit of pure rage.  Breaking his chains and fully transforming for the first time, he retaliated at full force and massacred the entire village, destroying all of the buildings and killing everyone in bloodlust.  When the dust finally calmed down and cleared, all that was left was an emotionless looking Anthimus covered in blood and surrounded by dozens of dead bodies.

A few days later, an Acolyte of Thanatos arrived at the village.  The first thing he noticed was a young boy kneeling down in front of dozens of graves, his eyes showing no signs of life as he gazed at one of the graves covered with flowers.  When the Acolyte spoke with Anthimus, he learned of what had transpired in the now dead village.  How his only friend passed away.  His mother was brutally killed before his eyes.  And how he slaughter everyone and buried them.  After hearing his story, the Acolyte saw how death now had a strong hold on him, and knew that Anthimus needed a place to be.  By night's fall, The Acolyte began his journey back to the Temples of Thanatos.  Anthimus, taking only his father's pendant, followed closely behind.
