  1. Regalia.jpg
    A city, vast and sprawling, known throughout the world as the most technologically advanced, home of the Noblemen, and also to one of the most expansive undergrounds, and the most notorious criminals.

    The city is comprised of five layers, literally stacked on one another:

    Forma Regalia, the top layer, is actually floating several hundred feet above the surface of the planet. This place, shimmering with the gold and silvers of displayed riches, is the home of many Noblemen, the current ruling class. They remain in their homes in the clouds, above all others. Residents of Forma Regalia are the elite, and almost never associate with lower classes, even indirectly.

    Upper Regalia, the second layer, is where average people live. Daily men and women who operate the machines that run everyone's lives and dominate the culture. To get a good feel of the sheer pace of this part of the city, imagine if everyone in modern Tokyo took cocaine and drank and extra seven cups of espresso coffee that morning. Maybe that's an exaggeration, but go to the heart of the district, you'll feel the rhythm and understand.

    Neutra Regalia, the mid layer, is the underground. Welcome to the infamous sector of hackers, crime lords, drugs, raves, music, and dark desire. Here you can find everything except anything legal. The sector is mostly lit by neon light strips. But what makes the place really famous is it's world class Artificers, doctor/engineers who, for a price, will mechanically enhance your body to make you one with machines. Whether it's hacking into a mainframe via thought or cybernetic limbs, chances are you can find an Artificer to make it happen.

    Lower Regalia, the second-to-last layer, is literally a junkyard, the place where street cleaners, criminals, law enforcement, commoners and Noblemen alike dump their refuse. The place is infested with mutated rats and the lowest of the low, who would kill you just so they could take your stuff. Staying here longer than fifteen seconds is ill advised, and at all without a gas mask is just plain stupid, as the whole area is toxic, poisoning the city.

    Dark Regalia, the last layer, is completely insane. Filled with toxic gasses and liquids from the above Lower Regalia, it is filled with savage, mutant beasts and warring clans of disfigured bandits who would gladly kill you for a laugh. Anyone can enter, but it is rare that anyone leaves and lives long.

    We are starting off in Neutra Regalia.

    Muscular Strength:
    She has the inherent ability to lift and throw about 2 tons

    Speed: Her running speed tops at 50 miles per hour.

    Intelligence: She is gifted with certifiable genius intelligence, though her field of studies are not focused on one branch of the tree of knowledge. She knows what she needs to know.

    Reflexes: Her reflexes are heightened to be able to have her body react to danger quicker. Example: A bullet is fired at her, she can dodge it and others should they not be fired in automatic succession. Her mind however sometimes doesn't React to certain reflexive triggers.

She is curious, overly curious having been out of the loop for 102 years. She is prone to violence, and she shows no emotion towards anything (Even though she wants to) She is easily mislead, gullible given her military brainwashing, abusable by making oneself appear to have take over her command and give her orders. Her biological structure has heightened her resistance to viral infection, disease, poison and radiation, the downside is her body is extraordinarily susceptible to Tranquilizers and Drugs.

    Gear: None, She has been on Ice for the last 102 Years.

    Gear She is able to Use:

    Hobbies: (optional) currently undergoing a project to try and work out a way of upgrading her wings.
    Special skills: Was trained in the wielding of longswords, and has a relatively good aim when using lighter guns. She would also look incredibly intimidating floating in a dark room with a spotlight behind her.

    Gear: (weapons, tools, etc.) a longsword and a pair of uzis

    Bio: 'The Observer. This name is often whispered in hushed tones in the Neutra Sector. Rumor has it that he has cameras everywhere, and see's everything despite the fact he's rumored to be eyeless. Apparently he charges major amounts of money to those who seek information. And despite the authorities attempts to track him down, wherever he is, he's never left a trace. Those who have met him before say that he moves from his two bases on a bi-monthly basis. But is this fact, or a widely believed superstition?' - News reporter I'll end up telling the rest of the bio in character, most likely via dreams or flashbacks.
    Roslyn is commonly known as a superstition, The Observer, one who is said to have eyes all over the city, she deals in secrets, making those who need information pay large sums of money to get it. Many presume The Observer a cloaked male.
    Appearance: [​IMG]
    She has a biomechanical forearm and shin, along with her eyes; more of a box-like component which will be explained later IC.

  11. I hope it's not a problem that someone will have to reactivate "Six" in story
  12. @Raimei good so far

    @MegaMonkey not at all. If one of the others doesn't activate her, I'll have Caesar do it as a job or something.
  13. That's what I was thinking, some rich crime boss contacting one of the others or yourself saying they need a storage facility broken into. Old World Advanced tech worth big money but they were misinformed and instead of tech, it's full of freezer tubes, with all but one either destroyed their contents dead or opened already, the one that's still active containing Six.
  14. I think my Ap is done.
  15. @Raimei you need to add the downfalls, gear, and modifications.
  16. May I join in? And does it have to be human?
  17. Please notify me if anything needs to be altered; thank you.
