Ideas, characters, and an itching for specifics

  1. I'm re-entering the role play scene after a long absence. I've been role playing since I was twelve and have always found grand enjoyment in it. Right now I have a selection of characters I'm itching to replay (including one entirely new one that's been festering inside my head for the better part of a year now), along with a general premise for each. Of course, I'm open to any input or ideas from others, as well as critique and any sort of comment. I'm more than receptive to role play ideas other than just the three characters and settings associated with that I'm listing, these are just my biggest current itches.

    ABRAHAM x2

    Abraham is my angel character. I use "angel" in a Christian sense but not at all in the strict Biblical kind. Abraham is the sort angel best illustrated by the Renaissance era, but his history does include being made by the Christian God up in Heaven. Abraham himself, however, differs greatly from the typical angel in that he is stoic, sometimes cruel, homosexual (and borderline demisexual), and greatly despises being under the control of his God. Abraham was paired with a lover many years ago who has been gone for many years now as well. His past lover has not left his heart and does come up in IC posts.

    I don't have a specific plot in mind, but Abraham is always played in medium to high fantasy, but I am very much open to a supernatural/paranormal setting as well. Involving other angels and/or demons would be very interesting (demons especially!). I've always wanted to participate in a demon role play of some sort but still haven't, so that's on my list! And since of course Abraham is constructed around a religion, using religion(s) in some way also appeals to me.

    Also have a character sheet if interested.

    Simfilan is my first characters, back when I could only play animals. He is a lion, the now extinct in the wild Barbary lion, and a joy to play. He's humble, wise, loving, loyal, and largely pacifist. He can also be trusting to a fault, taken advantage of, and at times be far too neutral, to the point of creating harm. He also has a tendency to respect those above him to the point of almost blindly obeying them. Simfilan is also always played in a medium to high fantasy setting, although I'm used to high fantasy with other animals the most.

    Character is capable of being a shifter to widen up the possibilities - the idea of a human!simfilan or shape shifter is greatly appealing to me. I'd love to try either out.

    I also have a character sheet if interested.

    Julia is one of my newest characters that I haven't played yet. She's part of the Pokemon world exclusively, which I've had interest in for years but never really got to play for one reason or another, though I did make attempts. She's gender blending and a loud feminist - her Pokemon team consists of Pokemon chosen specifically because she feels they emulate feminine power (such as Nidoqueen).

    For the Pokemon world I was thinking of starting out with just one other person (we could invite more people as needed later on). The idea of travelling through routes and towns and battling random NPCs and gym leaders really appeals to me. I think this can be done with another trainer partnering up (or something) but I may need a little assistance to get this giant world together. Though I am open to an idea that doesn't involve battling around and collecting badges - perhaps our characters fight off one of the corrupt Teams and illegal Pokemon poaching? Maybe our characters are trainers who dislike each other caught in a tough pinch. I'm pretty open to this so long as personal Pokemon are involved, of course. Even doing something involving the Nurses/medical emergencies as a result of violence could be super interesting, especially since veterinary medicine is my line of work IRL.

    Madame Ubu, or just Ubu as she refers to herself as, is an older woman of colour in her sixties, quite affected by osteoporosis and always carrying a staff for support. She is Pagan/Wiccan and her primary feature is the reading of animal oracle cards. She is a nomad by definition and is constantly travelling, making most of her money through her readings. She is one of my few fully human characters.

    Her animal oracle readings are very important to the plot and thread she is in. It's the center of her creation and an element I desperately want to try out in a role play at some point. I also read each reading IC personally with my own cards.

    This is a character I have not yet had the chance to play, but she's been swirling in my mind for several years now. Magic, fantasy, supernatural/paranormal could all work for her, fantasy especially.

    Another one of my first characters, David is a werewolf, my only character who is one. The specifics of his condition can be altered for the role play, but he's never been strictly human or wolf. I haven't written with him in a long time and would like to. He's quite vulgar, crass, sexist, and sex driven. In his late twenties and with a passion for constant action. He has high confidence and tends to write off others for the slightest reason.

    This is a character inspired by the famous children's book "Velveteen Rabbit". Little Lamby is based off of a real stuffed Easter lamb that has a personality all her own that I fashioned into a character years ago. She's sassy, outspoken, somewhat unintelligent, adamant, and easily hurt by others while seeming to have a large ego. She has never been played before but is a character I've been wanting to play. She can be played as an animal or furry.

    I have created a character sheet for her, if anyone's interested.

  2. Added another character I'm interested in trying out~
  3. Added another character and genre lists for each to make things easier. <3
  4. Ahh, veterinary medicine... That's what I'm currently in school for! ^_^

    Anyway, you have some really interesting characters up there, and I'd definitely be up for roleplaying with you, if you'll have me that is. I think Simfilan or Julia would be interesting and fun to rp with...
  5. I have been /dying/ to do a Pokemon role play! Simfilan is always great though. Do you have a preference? And I'm not in school for it, but I'm a veterinary assistant who is training in lots of tech areas. :) All of my jobs have been in vet medicine, it's awesome!
  6. I don't have a preference, so since you've been dying to do a pokemon roleplay we can do that one!

    That sounds really cool! (:
  7. I was doing a Pokemon based RP a long time back and recently wanted to continue it. My patner for it quit on me, but I really liked the storyline. If interested, PM me and I'll submit a thread.
