  1. This will be based off of dishonored, if you don't know what that is, well it's okay, should be easy to follow along.
    Location: USA, Massachusetts, Boston.
    Date: November 27, 2014.

    To the naked eye, the world looks incorruptible, but behind the scenes, that's a different story. There are others performing dark arts, world threatening disasters being dealt with...unspeakable corruption, hidden from the public.
    The outsider
    outsider (open)


    "The Outsider is a figure of myth, neither good nor evil."
    The Outsider appears to people he finds "interesting," and can make contact with them both through dreams, and in the physical world at his shrines. When he makes contact with you, he will provide you with one of his "gifts" making you bare his mark on your left hand, giving you supernatural powers.
    While the Outsider remains neutral in regard to events that transpire in the mortal world. He does not place conditions on those he gifts with supernatural abilities, and does not seem to factor hierarchy or effort into their selection
    No further info has been recorded.

    ) has called his followers (
    outsiders (open)
    followers of The Outsider himself, each one bares the gift mark on their left hand. image.jpg Each outsider has the ability to use dark magic to get their way in life, wether it be thieving or saving a life, or even simple activities like getting around to different locations. They look like ordinary people, but they want that. Underneath their disguise, they are something more.
    ) to his aid, the witches of Salem have now taken action to take over The Outsider's realm. They plan on eliminating Outsiders from the mortal world. Once they're done, they're going to capture The Outsider and take his place, and take his power. If they succeed everything in the mortal world and beyond will crumble.
    Over the last couple of months, Outsiders have been disappearing left and right. Once there was hundreds of Outersiders, now there is less then twenty. Witches, once prey by the Outsiders, now the witches became the predators. The numbers of witches has vastly grown through out the months. All of them, gaining their power from an unknown source. No one knows the whereabouts of this source.
    The Outsider has located the rest of his followers to the heart of Boston, in a abandoned factory. Here he will have his followers figure out how to set aside their differences and work together to eliminate the threat or lose their world they live on, and their power.....

    Name:Claire Wyoming

    Background:Claire lived a pretty well rounded life, she excelled in computer technology knowing how to program almost anything that has a motherboard. She never failed any of her classes, passed with high honors, she was getting scholarships and everything she could ever desire. Including her cat mittens. But all that changed, after a bad work day with her father.
    One day her father got many death threats during the day, he worked as a private investigator. He noticed a car following him around, the threats had an unknown location of where it was coming from. Making her dad on edge all day, keeping his self defense weapon at his side all day (pistol). When he came home he realized the same car that had been following him was parked in front of his house. So he decided to sneak through the back, held his pistol and noticed the back door was open. Once he went in, someone jumped in front of him and he shot... He shot Claire's mom, his wife. It was a surprise party for his birthday, everyone stared in horror. And Clair's mom laid in a pool of blood.
    Claire's dad was arrested, and she had to go to a foster home. She hopped from foster home to foster home. Only thing to keep her company was her cat mittens. Eventually Claire ran away at the age of 16, once she did, she was visited by The outsider, and she was given the mark. He saw how her life turned around so quick, and saw what path she was going down. This new found gift let her get through life, thieving and sneaking around, sharing a life with her cat. Even though he gave her fangs and turned her food into blood, she learned to live with it (she is the only outsider who feeds off of blood for her powers) some people even became donators for blood so she wouldn't need to hurt anyone who didn't deserve it. Eventually she could possess her cat to the point where both her and mittens had a mutual relation ship. And then spiritually bonded. Now Claire rooms the streets getting any info on current day life, and stealing just to live another day.
    Weapons: five seven pistols with green laser sights. And a short tactical sword (all stolen)

    Personality: very energetic and random at times, but can have a temper if the right thing can tick her off. She doesn't care for others, unless he/she makes an impression on her. She also tends to be very curious and nosy about things.
    Abilities:blink, possession, dark sorcery (the ability to control dark energies and magic. Claire so far has no idea how it works, only thing she can do is create dark spheres of energy and launch it at others. Only downfall is that she has to feed off of blood to survive. She grew fangs as soon as she got the mark.)
    Passive trait: agility
    Years: 3

    Alexandria Hale


    blink (open)

    Can teleport short distances. With practice the ability can be used more rapidly. (To anyone who sees the caster teleport, it looks as if the caster deteriorates into ashes and morphs in a new location.)

    grasp (open)

    Can lift up any object (only if the caster has the physical strength to lift it him/herself) from a distance, pulling it towards them, moving it around or throwing it,almost telepathically.

    possession (open)

    Enter the body and possess any creature (except other outsiders) for a short duration of time, giving the caster full control of its victim. Once the spell is done with, the victim will either pass out, or walk off with no memory of the possession (varies on how many times the victim has been possessed, he/she could be use to it or not) With practice, the ability can eventually be used as long as the caster wants.

    void gaze (open)

    Gives the caster the ability to see through walls and spot out other living creatures and beings. (Think of it as x-ray vision)

    Passive traits
    agility (open)

    Can jump at least a story high, your reflexes are quicker, and your running speed is increased three times of an average runner.

    tough skin (open)

    Can endure more damage than three men combined. Your regeneration properties are increased as well (a stab wound would take days, instead of months to heal)

    naturally gifted (open)

    You are automatically skilled (averagely skilled, I may add) with any weapon you currently having in your hands

    If you have any questions just ask, I won't bite :)

  6. Name: Alexandria Hale

    Age: 18




    Growing up with three loud and outspoken elder siblings, she never gets her own say in things like family activities and stuff like that. Her parents would ignore her attempts at suggesting an idea and would always listen to the older kids. Sometimes, it’s as if her parents forgot she was there. For example, they left her at home when they wanted to visit their grandparents’ house. They just drove off without waiting for her. It’s the same when she is in school. Her ‘friends’ are the ones that always get their own say in things and she’s usually dragged into their activities.

    A few years passed, her parents started fighting at the dinner table, and her siblings would talk loudly amongst themselves as if they’re the only ones there. Hence, the whole house would be filled with noise pollution and there would be no peace. The only peace she has was when everyone was asleep. At school, her ‘friends’ started to take advantage of her, which she was oblivious about. Yes, she felt recognised, but it didn’t seem right. She felt as though she was being bossed around. Still, she didn’t rebel against her ‘friends’ nor her family.

    After a night hearing her parents yelling at each other, her siblings ignoring her and her ‘friends’ taking advantage of her, now 16, she had a dream. It was as though she having a lucid dream but it wasn’t. She was visited by The Outsider in her dreams and she was given the mark on her left hand. He saw how she was being ignored almost her entire life and how she just lived through each day as though she was like every normal kid. The whole time, she just stood there, trying to take everything in, telling herself that this was only a dream before glancing at her left hand again. The next morning, she woke up and saw the mark on her left hand.

    Currently, she still attends school but sneaks out in the middle of the night. It’s not like she gets caught or anything. She could be gone for days and her whole family wouldn’t realise it. Her so called ‘friends’, somehow doesn't talk to her anymore. Hence, making her alone in school. But, she could sneak away from classes easily.


    Usually quiet and her aura tends to fade into the background. She is very soft-spoken and will speak when needed or when she feels like it. One would think she is sad all the time, due to the natural frown on her face, she is feeling neutral. She rarely gets angry since she tries to control it most of the time.


    Blink, Void Gaze, Sonic scream (The ability to emit highly enhanced destructive and deafening scream of a high amplitude. This power is usually activated when Alexandria’s feeling stressed out by the situation or when the environment annoys her and causes distress to her.)

    Passive trait: Agility

    Years: 2

    She wears fingerless gloves over her left hand whenever she goes out.
  7. Your character has been accepted. I like the backstory to it :)
    • Like Like x 1
  8. Okay I need more than a few sentences for each box. Like why was he visited by the outsider, how was his life before & after the change. And what he's currently doing. Plus he can't just cloaked, unless his past is being a criminal then he shouldn't need to have a concealed face.

    Plus you didn't read the rules sweetie, meow :3
