The Avengers are dead. The world is losing hope. HYDRA is thriving, running rampant with no one to stop them. But there are still those strong ones out there that can save the world from HYDRA's clutches. SHIELD, though weak and in hiding, is collecting superhumans yet again, and assembling a team to take down the organization.....once and for all. They are not ready. Most need training. But they are strong willed. And the few remaining SHIELD agents are determined to get them running smoothly as a team, especially since they will be up against a powerful team within HYDRA, the Covert Division. Let the rebellion begin. Rules Plot CS template Accepted Characters Players Waiting List My Characters Special Thanks All Iwaku rules apply. One post a week at least is required. If you don't post within a week, I will PM you a reminder. If you don't answer that PM or post within three days, I will kill your characters or turn them into NPCs. 12 players MAX. 10 is preferred. This RP has a set plot beforehand with multiple arcs. However, I will consider player-generated arc ideas. Just PM me! I, the GM, control all NPCs and canon characters. Character death will be a thing if they do something stupid or you want them to die. As GM, I reserve the right to kill off your characters without consent (but I most likely won't be doing that). This is an Intermediate level RP. Two paragraphs minimum, well-developed sentences, and proper spelling and punctuation are a must. Try not to get into a long-term back and forth with yourself and another player. This hinders the progression of the RP. I don't mind a little bit of it, just don't clog the IC up with it. They are teams, after all. They should interact with everyone, if possible. When making a CS, make sure you don't steal anyone else's powers. Don't drop out without any warning. At least tell us! When making a CS, note that you cannot start roleplaying until I make it clear that you are accepted. This should be obvious, but I'm putting this in here anyway. No Mary-Sues, Gary-Stus, godmodding, or metagaming. I reserve the right to change rules as I see fit. Please, ask questions if you're unsure of something. I'm relatively new to GMing, so if any of you have had experience, I'd appreciate tips as well. Don't be afraid to point out if I made a mistake or if I need to add in more information! Not really a rule, but I just wanted to say that for some reason the coding on this is going wacky with me. It keeps putting commands in that I didn't type. Therefore, one of my character sheets is always getting messed up. I am working on trying to fix this (but every time I edit it out and then save it, it comes back! I'm done with this stupid thing)! ....vent over. Move on. The SHIELD HQ is located in a secure facility in New York City. We will start out with all our SHIELD characters meeting and making friendships and possibly rivalries in that facility, as well as a few training sessions. The HYDRA HQ is the previously abandoned base located in Sokovia. Like SHIELD, it will begin with the characters of the Covert Division meeting and learning how to work together (training sessions apply here as well). Once a few training sessions have been completed and we have some friendships set in stone in both teams, I will make a GM post and initiate Arc 1. (Note: this will be edited as the RP moves on.) (Note that I don't care if you add in any information that I left out. Just stick to the basic template, include the information that is asked of you, and you're good! If you want to keep anything secret from the other players, PM me with the information instead of including it in the CS.)

Luna Adler Indis Caverly Indis Caverly Female||15||SHIELD||Hulk||5'7" or 12'6" ||Personality|| Luna tries to stay positive and is always looking for a way to make a pun or joke. However, she is deeply insecure, very afraid of hurting people, and ashamed of what she is. Though she loves making friends, she needs reassurance that they don't hate her and is often afraid that she might hurt them. Contradicting this personality is her dragon side. It is sadistic, violent, and does not hesitate to kill. It feels no remorse and will even turn on teammates and friends if the human side cannot keep it under relative control. Like the real Hulk, it is triggered by strong emotion. ||Powers|Abilities|Skills|| Luna can shift into a dragon. The dragon's skills include: -Flight -Firebreathing -Super Strength -Night Vision -Almost impenetrable scales She possesses no superhuman abilities outside of her dragon form. ||Weaknesses|| -If her jaws are held shut, she cannot breathe fire. -Her wings are easily damaged, and if they are, she cannot fly. -Her chest and underbelly is where her vital organs are. If the scales are broken through, she will most likely die. -After shifting from dragon form, she is dizzy and very weak for a few minutes. -She is left naked and vulnerable after shifting from dragon form. -She is very sluggish in the cold in either form. -She must eat more than the average human to keep her strength up. ||History|| Luna was raised neglected by her family in the slums of LA. Her father was an alcoholic and her mother a drug addict. Luna would often have to steal money from them to buy clothes and other necessary items for school. She grew up with no idea what she was, but she did notice some differences from her peers. For one, she was angered much too easily. For another, she ate more than most of her peers did. One day, as she was walking home from school at the tender age of 13, she was attacked by a group of men with undisclosed intentions. That was the first time she shifted, her dragon form reacting to her fear to protect her. After killing the men and a few innocent bystanders, it flew away from California and hid in New York before giving Luna control again. She woke up with no idea where she was, only a vague idea of what had happened, and not understanding why she had no clothes on. Two years later, years full of coming to terms with what she was and a daily struggle to survive, and she was approached by SHIELD. At first, she was hostile and afraid of what may happen, but the organization was firm in their proceedings and tried to convince her in the most gentle way possible to come quietly. Eventually, she agreed, and is both nervous and excited about being part of a team. She hopes it will turn out to be like the family she never had. ||Other|| -Luna really loves pancakes. -She dresses comfortably (sweats and tees, mostly) and tends to sleep a lot. ||Theme|| Female~21~HYDRA~Leader~5' 5" ~Personality~ Indis could easily be seen as cruel to those that don't know her. However, around those she considers friends and family, she is loyal, caring, and even borderline funny. Indis has no qualms about killing, and never feels guilty about ending someone's life. But she would never turn against the Covert Division, as she considers them her family and her responsibility. As long as someone is loyal to HYDRA, she is willing to become their friend. ~Powers~Abilities~Skills~ Indis is basically darkness incarnate. Her abilities include: -Shadow manipulation, control, and creation -Shadow solidifying -Shadow teleportation ~Weaknesses -She can only create a few shadows at a time, and they are less powerful than pre-existing shadows. -Shadow teleportation takes a lot out of her and she can only teleport herself, never anyone else. -Light dispels her shadows easily. -She herself is blinded easily by light and must wear either a hat or sunglasses to protect her eyes from it. -She has no superhuman abilities other than these, so she is vulnerable to everything a normal human is. ~History~ Indis was born to a scientist and a field agent, both working for HYDRA. She was raised to be a killer, and was a successful assassin from ages 10-18. During these years, her mother, the field agent, was killed during one of her missions in an encounter with SHIELD. On her 18th birthday, her father approached her with a proposition and a vial of an untested supersoldier syrum. Indis agreed, albeit hesitantly, to the operation for reasons unknown. The syrum was thus injected into her body. She nearly died, but she was a fighter through and through and managed to survive the painful procedure. The result? Her shadow powers. Now, she has put forward the proposition of the Covert Divison and is very pleased to see it growing and turning into what she had dreamed. And SHIELD will pay for killing her mother. ~Other~ -She doesn't like her father much -Hot chocolate will cheer her up every time. ~Theme~ Thanks to @Soulserenity20 for putting together the character banners for me. ^.^ You're amazing! Thanks to @firejay1 for for putting together the advertisement. Again, you're awesome. And a very big thank-you to @Ali for putting together the roleplay header!!
