    "Do not think the youth has no force because he cannot speak to you and me. Hark! in the next room, who spoke so clear and emphatic? Good Heaven! it is he! it is that very lump of bashfulness and phlegm which for weeks has done nothing but eat when you were by, that now rolls out these words like bell-strokes. It seems he knows how to speak to his contemporaries. Bashful or bold, then, he will know how to make us seniors very unnecessary." —Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance.

    Sophia gave the breath of life to the chosen. Cloaked in indigo, these children were coronated with gladioli, irises, and Stars of Bethlehem, and in the temple of the West, they rose. As the earth met the stars, Sophia beckoned the chosen to their destiny, and Yaldabaoth sent forth armies on the material plane. Today is December 17th, 2014, the first day of Saturnalia and the first day of the last week of Advent. The prophecy has come to fruition, and the chosen ones disposed to gnosis by Monad shall emerge with visions. They will break the chains of the world built by sin with power from the highest heavens. They will destroy the evil in their wake, even if they destroy themselves. Shall man and chosen and evil and light converge in the final battle to end all ages. A quiet suburb will be shaken by God. The chosen will awaken.

    Lore

    To help further your understanding of the foundations of this roleplay, reading The Gnostic World View: A Brief Summary of Gnosticism will suffice. From there, you may learn all you need to understand Gnosticism. Gnosticism, however, shall not dictate entirely the background of the roleplay, and I have and will tweak concepts here and there to match my intentions for this roleplay. Below are some essential texts that you might find useful in your knowledge of the roleplay.

    The Four Spiritual Races

    The Chosen are the souls of people, claimed by the One or Yaldabaoth. Regardless of whom originally claimed them, the Chosen hold the power to decide between the One and Yaldabaoth. Upon the beginning of the end, they will be contacted by demons and angels and visions until they achieve enlightenment and must choose between the One and Yaldabaoth. Once they choose their alignment, their fate is sealed, and they will receive power gifted by the God they aligned with. The Chosen are high school students in Union Hill, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth. You may freely play the Chosen.
    • With the events of December 17th, 2014, the Chosen received the ability of Divine Sight, allowing them to see the supernatural creatures that choose to reveal themselves.
    • On the night of December 18th, 2014, the Chosen received a vision in their dreams.

    The Blinded are all of the normal people in the world. They may be divided into two groups: the Free and the Chained. The Free may receive enlightenment and discern between the forces of Order and Chaos, Light and Dark, but the Chained are bound to the Darkened and the material world and shall give into the will of Yaldabaoth for eternity. You may only play the Free.

    The Aeons are the various emanations of the One, the purest form of God from which pleroma, the fullness of divinity and region of light, emanates. The proposed tree models of Aeons in pleroma can be found here on Wikipedia. The One radiates his light, and he may send his Aeons forth to the material world by his command. The Aeons themselves may also command those below them in the ranks of pleroma, and the nine choirs of angels are minor Aeons distinct from the major thirty. All Aeons come in 'male-female' pairs (although they are actually spirits of great power and don't actually have gender). You may only play the minor Aeons.

    The Darkened are the various depths of the darkness of Yaldabaoth. They are demons essentially, and they are neither organized nor orderly. They may manifest as people, and they are the reigning party of the material world. You may only play the minor Darkened.

    Locations

    Union Hill High School is a high school of roughly 2,500 students. Among UHHS's strengths are accredited fine arts programs, especially its band and its choir; some of the highest AP exam scores in the state; and well-funded career- and technology-based courses. Many of Union Hill's teachers have awards from respected institutions, and in particular, the teachers of Union Hill's advanced courses provide powerful and inspirational instruction with developed and supportive relationships between teacher and student. Overall, Union Hill High School, although not nationally appreciated, remains in high regard to many students and parents in the area and holds much prestige in the area of secondary education.
    • As of December 17th, 2014, a large statue of an armor-clad figure, with horns protruding from its helmet and on its pedestal on one knee, now sits facing the building in the middle of the ruined courtyard in front of the school, with rocks thrown across the sidewalks and grass. The event of the statue's crash is currently under investigation.
    Abilities

    Divine Sight was given to all of the Chosen by Yammon as he sprinkled incense over Union Hill; therefore, all Chosen characters moving forward will have this ability. Divine Sight allows the bearer to see any angels and demons that choose to reveal themselves. On occasion, it may be given to the Blind by angels working miracles.

    Characters

    Player: ravenDivinity
    Elias Corvorum Graeff (open)
    Name: Elias Corvorum Graeff
    Spiritual Race: Chosen
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Elias's dark brown eyes, although softening and welcoming, offer a glimpse of his elusive, adamant, and defiant soul and seem so strong as to drive out demons in their wake. They are framed by brown hair so dark that it might as well be black and by a somewhat smooth yet square-jawed bone structure. His soft, supple skin is olive and unmarked with no tattoos or markings of any sort. Elias stands with good posture at an average height of 5'10" and a normal weight of roughly 150 pounds, complemented by only some hard-earned muscle. On a regular basis, he wears Prussian blue jeans and whatever T-shirt, baseball tee, or long-sleeved shirt he pulls from the closet, and typical sensibility about the weather marks his outfits. When appropriate, he'll wear tan pants or cargo shorts, and if he's feeling fancy, he might wear a sweater or a dress shirt with rolled-up sleeves. The dashing fox in him also has a soft spot for suits and ties. A winged sword necklace around his neck and glasses on his nose have become typical of his appearance.

    Personality: A solemn, shy shadow follows Elias wherever he goes, and sometimes depressed and anxious musings plague him. Beyond that, he approaches with some reluctance as he yields to those around him if their will is not against his, but in the face of manipulators and oppressors, Graeff is a free, rebellious boy in his unyielding thoughts and transcendental virtues, giving rise to philosophy and intellectualism. His deadly sin, however, is melancholic sloth and angered wrath. Elias remains fairly optimistic despite all that discourages, and he espouses wishful thinking and hope.

    Background: Union Hill is the only home Elias has ever known although he's traveled to his immigrant mother's home in the Philippines and seen the canyons and deserts of the West from Texas to Arizona, the swamps and bogs of Louisiana, and the coast of the Gulf of Mexico from Louisiana to east Florida. The unmoving nature of his home pushes him to seek what is beyond Union Hill and the fantastical world outside the United States. More influential in his upbringing is the Roman Catholic Church, which his mother raised him under since he popped out, and even in his devotion, he breaks the norms of the Church with a deep-seated attractions to the same gender, a deviating variety of opinions that stray from their doctrines and politicized dogma, and a cursing scorn for hypocrisy and other members of the congregation, all of these divergent traits emerging from 4 years of staunch atheism. Graeff enjoys a relatively small circle of friends that balances the various aspects of his spontaneous and wildly uncontrollable personality.

    Claude Florian Saville (open)
    Name: Claude Florian Saville

    Spiritual Race: Chosen

    Age: Sixteen

    Gender: Male

    Appearance:
    Claude stands at 5'5” and he's the shortest boy in his grade. Luckily, he isn't the lankiest as he's got a swimmer's body maintained by routine visits to the pool and weighs in at 134 lbs. Always mindful of his appearance, he makes sure that he looks his best. His tawny hair is styled just so to be orderly in the back and give him a clean cut look in the front even when he ruffles his bangs into orderly chaos. His cloudy gray, upturned eyes give him a dreamy look and eye makeup, except for the occasional eye liner, is not a line he's willing to cross yet. He takes great care to keep his skin blemish free and his “peach bisque” tone intact so he rarely ventures out without sun screen or swims outdoors. Claude's never really considered getting any tattoos or piercings before, but he does think they look cool on people who have them. He enjoys wearing dark outfits with a bright colored accessory or a bright outfit with a dark accessory. The accessory tends to be one of his many neck scarves ranging from satin, silk, polyester, cashmere, whatever he can get his hands on. When the mood hits him, he wears giant hoodies and comfortable sweaters. Claude has sworn passionately that he will never wear hats because they mess up his hair, one of his best features.

    Personality:
    Positive
    • Genial; friendly and easily introduces himself to others
    • Self-assured; has the pride and willingness to do what he wants without faltering
    • Empathetic; lends an ear to anyone willing to vent and helps them out
    • Detail-oriented; notices abnormalities and fixes them

    Negative
    • Vain; occasionally cares about his appearance too much
    • Audacious; his friendliness and extroversion seems domineering and very forward
    • Shameless; doesn't feel the embarrassment or flustered emotions (guilt, etc.) that he should
    • Meticulous; becomes obsessive with the details and has to fix it or he'll become anxious

    Background:
    Born and raised in Strasbourg, France Claude moved to Union Hill, Texas in his freshman year. His mother, Élise, decided that America would be a great chance to give her son opportunities he would never get if he stayed in France the rest of his life; his father, Luc, said nothing as he had been off gallivanting with different women since Claude was ten. Élise had great credentials as a successful beautician in Strasbourg and saved enough money to take her and her son to a town she pointed to on a map. In America, Claude's mother opened up her own beauty parlor in Union Hill, Texas where Claude worked and helped out in after school and on the weekends. Claude adapted better than expected and his English only had a small accent to it, but he enjoyed the chance to go to America. He was less thrilled when he learned about the area and town he would be living in. He and his mom were liberals and atheists and just so not the Christian Republican ideal of Texas. When he arrived to Union Hill's high school in freshman year, Claude garnered a large group of amicable acquaintances and became a part of a trio with his close friends, Ian and Damon. Though he's not a fan of prejudice, Claude does enjoy using stereotypes to his advantage and gets away with being uncomfortably close to people and what he's heard called “being flamboyantly gay” to which he laughs at because it's called being flamboyantly bisexual in his case.

    Tessa Roberts (open)
    Name: Tessa Roberts
    Spiritual Race: Blinded/The Free
    Age: 18

    Appearance: Tessa is a short girl, only coming in at 5'6, and roughly 170lbs, with near to no actual muscle. This, combined with her pale complexion, lends to her origins of spending most of her days inside, and her introvert nature. Tessa's fair skin is silk like in touch, and is well taken care of, bearing no blemishes whatsoever, as she holds personal hygiene in the utmost regard. Tessa's hair is silver, a natural color that many believe she had dyed. The silver hair has a certain sheen to it, and hangs down to her shoulders, ending in slight curls. Like her skin, Tessa takes very good care of her hair, making sure it is almost always presentable. Amazingly, Tessa uses very little makeup, which she doesn't need anyway. With her fair looks, using makeup would make her looks far more worse, than with them. With Tessa's great skin, and good hair, coupled with her above-average looks and well above-average bust, it is a surprise to most that Tessa is such an introvert, and often goes out of her way to avoid to any type of social interaction. As for Tessa's attire, she typically dresses somewhat informally, opting for blue jeans, typically a dark colored type of tennis shoe, and a plaid, button up shirt. Tessa typically keeps the first three buttons of the shirt unbuttoned. Tessa typically wears nothing, besides her bra, under the plaid shirt. With a girl obsessed with hygiene, most our surprised to know that Tessa is tattooed. While typically concealed, Tessa wears a angel wing tattoo on her back, which covers almost her entire back, minus the spine.

    Personality: Tessa's primary personality trait is the that's she's a major introvert. While this shows in almost all her actions, this does not mean she does not have social skills. Tessa is excellent at controlling a conversation, and being generally charismatic, but often only does so to keep up appearances in front of teachers, or other important people. Tessa's next personality trait is her heighten intelligence. Tessa has always scored in the top 5% of the class, if not the #1 in class. While this does not lend to her book smarts, of which are low, is primarily lends to her determined mindset, and her ability to overcome any type of problem. Tessa loves brain teasers, and often reads as much as she can. Tessa will often enjoy solving problems, being social or school, with joy. Unfortunately, this has left Tessa with a budding God-complex, believing she will always succeed and that failure is not possible. While this complex is budding, Tessa does a well-enough job hiding it from everyone else, in order to appear as a relatively normal girl.

    Background: Tessa grew up to an upper-middle class family, no where near wanting in her day to day life. Most of Tessa's early years was spent being home schooled by her father, a mildly successful freelancer. A self described 'man of science', Tessa's father spent most of his time in his personal lab when not teaching Tessa. Tessa's mom was largely absent from her life, spending most of the day working for a large company, providing for her family while her husband busied himself in his lab. Tessa eventually attended public school around the age of 10, much to her father's chagrin. Eventually, Tessa's life took a turn for the worse. Coming back home after her first day of school, her home was a wreck, with things stolen and destroyed. Her father was gone, and all his lab equipment along with it. Authorities never found her father, and he was declared dead after four days of frantic searching. In order to help raise her daughter, Tessa spent less time at work, and more time at home. With the tragedy, Tessa became more determined than ever to excel where her father had failed. She wanted to be just like him, to which her mother vehemently opposed. Eventually, Tessa and her mother moved to a quiet suburb, and her mother got a new job, albeit a less paying one. Still today, however, the memories of her father are fresh within Tessa mind, driving her to become successful, and to discover the world.

    Jacob Coulter (open)
    Name: Jacob Coulter
    Spiritual Race: Blinded/Free
    Age: 18
    Gender: Male

    Appearance: Jacob is of relatively average height, standing at 5'9. He weighs 180 lbs. and is of a muscular build. Additionally, Jacob has well-defined abdominal muscles and biceps. He has bright blue eyes and light brown hair. Jacob has never dyed his hair his whole life, nor has he ever worn glasses. Jacob usually has short hair that is often styled into a faux hawk. In contrast to his rather light eye and hair color, Jacob' skin is tanned due to his highly active and outdoorsman-like lifestyle. Despite his active lifestyle, Jacob tries to maintain his skin's smoothness through the use of several cosmetic products for reasons unknown. He has numerous tattoos over his body, most of which had been placed recently. Jacob has a tattoo of a basketball on his right forearm, a burning skull on his lower left thigh, a large tribal pattern on his chest and a similar one on his back, and the words "Can't Stop" on his knuckles. Jacob's fashion mostly revolves around basketball shirts and jerseys, a pair of shorts, and shoes from the nearest sports store. Jacob often wears sweatbands on his wrists.


    Personality: Overall people say that Jacob has the personality of a bull - a strong beast that charges everything and attempts to solve most of its problems with its horns.

    Pros
    • Highly athletic: can often run faster, last longer, and stay stronger than the average person.
    • Persevering and Hardworking: Jacob often does tasks until he can finally say that they are completely finished.
    • Courageous: Jacob is iron-willed and will usually tackle problems head-on.
    • Unshakeable: Jacob believes what he believes fervently. It will take a huge amount of effort to uproot his beliefs.
    • Strong sense of responsibility

    Cons
    • Stubborn: It will take a huge amount of effort to uproot his beliefs.
    • Hotheaded: Jacob often takes the smallest slight as an insult.
    • Not too bright: Jacob never got high grades at school, and usually falls flat when it comes to doing stuff that does not fall within the parameters of "can be hammered into submission"
    • Rude: Jacob is not the most charismatic or polite person around.
    Background:
    Born and raised in Union Hill, Texas, Jacob knew everything there was to the modern Lone Star State. His father raised him alone, as his mother died while giving birth to him. As a child, Jacob would often be taught how to play various sports by his father, who was apparently a former professional basketball player. His father taught him everything there was to know about keeping one's body fit, advice that Jacob still follows up to now. Growing up in a motherless environment was hard, as his father's masculinity rubbed off him. Lacking a mother figure (especially since his father did not know how to cook or to do laundry) meant that Jacob had to learn how to do those things by himself growing up. This soon metamorphosed into Jacob's strong sense of responsibility.
    When Jacob was fourteen, their house caught on fire after a stove was left open. Jacob managed to run out of the house, but his father was trapped. Against better judgment and to the shock of everyone around during the time, Jacob ran back into the house to save his father. He tried to carry his father out of the house, but even the already athletic Jacob infused with the power of adrenaline was unable to carry his father until unconsciousness struck him. Jacob awoke in the hospital just fine, miraculously sustaining no injuries. His father, on the other hand, was permanently mentally damaged, due to amount of time he spent inside the house asphyxiated. Jacob forced back his tears upon his discovery of this fact.
    He was passed on to the care of his father's brother, who was a drunkard and cared nothing for Jacob or his father's plight. Over the next few years, Jacob would tend not only to his life, but also cared for his father. This increased the amount of responsibility on him, which in turn increased his stress, thus leading to what people perceive as his hot temper and quick irritability. Despite the odds that his father will never return back to normal, Jacob still hopes to this day that his father will one day regain his senses; and it seems like nothing will ever dampen his hopes for the implausible.

  3. I'm interested in joining but by 'male-female' pairs do you mean that there will be two Aeons traveling together or is it that they are both female/male.
     
  4. They will not be traveling together nor both male and female.

    To simplify things, for each "male" Aeon, there is a "female" counterpart to his aspect. The tree of Aeons provides a useful example of this concept. But the Aeons made by players will not serve a purpose in controlling the world or controlling anything really. Think of the player-made Aeons as guardian angels, messengers bringing the message of God, et cetera, but not as deities or spirits reigning over the elements like the major Aeons.

    If you create any Aeon, you do not have to create its counterpart, but you can assume the counterpart exists. (Perhaps even have a fellow player take up its counterpart.)

  6. @CrimsonHorizons: Declined. Although your writing ability is above average, I believe that you might need to brush up on your skills a little more before you can be the perfect fit. Furthermore, I feel that your character does not match the demands of this particular suburban middle-class setting, despite your character's balanced personality. Keep up the good work, and best wishes on future exploits!

With a girl obsessed with hygiene, most our surprised to know that Tessa is tattooed. While typically concealed, Tessa wears a angel wing tattoo on her back, which covers almost her entire back, minus the spine.

    Personality: Tessa's primary personality trait is the that's she's a major introvert. While this shows in almost all her actions, this does not mean she does not have social skills. Tessa is excellent at controlling a conversation, and being generally charismatic, but often only does so to keep up appearances in front of teachers, or other important people. Tessa's next personality trait is her heighten intelligence. Tessa has always scored in the top 5% of the class, if not the #1 in class. While this does not lend to her book smarts, of which are low, is primarily lends to her determined mindset, and her ability to overcome any type of problem. Tessa loves brain teasers, and often reads as much as she can. Tessa will often enjoy solving problems, being social or school, with joy. Unfortunately, this has left Tessa with a budding God-complex, believing she will always succeed and that failure is not possible. While this complex is budding, Tessa does a well-enough job hiding it from everyone else, in order to appear as a relatively normal girl.

    Background: Tessa grew up to an upper-middle class family, no where near wanting in her day to day life. Most of Tessa's early years was spent being home schooled by her father, a mildly successful freelancer. A self described 'man of science', Tessa's father spent most of his time in his personal lab when not teaching Tessa. Tessa's mom was largely absent from her life, spending most of the day working for a large company, providing for her family while her husband busied himself in his lab. Tessa eventually attended public school around the age of 10, much to her father's chagrin. Eventually, Tessa's life took a turn for the worse. Coming back home after her first day of school, her home was a wreck, with things stolen and destroyed. Her father was gone, and all his lab equipment along with it. Authorities never found her father, and he was declared dead after four days of frantic searching. In order to help raise her daughter, Tessa spent less time at work, and more time at home. With the tragedy, Tessa became more determined than ever to excel where her father had failed. She wanted to be just like him, to which her mother vehemently opposed. Eventually, Tessa and her mother moved to a quiet suburb, and her mother got a new job, albeit a less paying one. Still today, however, the memories of her father are fresh within Tessa mind, driving her to become successful, and to discover the world.

He has bright blue eyes and light brown hair. Jacob has never dyed his hair his whole life, nor has he ever worn glasses. Jacob usually has short hair that is often styled into a faux hawk.

He has numerous tattoos over his body, most of which had been placed recently. Jacob has a tattoo of a basketball on his right forearm, a burning skull on his lower left thigh, a large tribal pattern on his chest and a similar one on his back, and the words "Can't Stop" on his knuckles. Jacob's fashion mostly revolves around basketball shirts and jerseys, a pair of shorts, and shoes from the nearest sports store. Jacob often wears sweatbands on his wrists.

    • Rude: Jacob is not the most charismatic or polite person around.
    Background:
    Born and raised in Union Hill, Texas, Jacob knew everything there was to the modern Lone Star State. His father raised him alone, as his mother died while giving birth to him. As a child, Jacob would often be taught how to play various sports by his father, who was apparently a former professional basketball player. His father taught him everything there was to know about keeping one's body fit, advice that Jacob still follows up to now. Growing up in a motherless environment was hard, as his father's masculinity rubbed off him. Lacking a mother figure (especially since his father did not know how to cook or to do laundry) meant that Jacob had to learn how to do those things by himself growing up. This soon metamorphosed into Jacob's strong sense of responsibility.
    When Jacob was fourteen, their house caught on fire after a stove was left open. Jacob managed to run out of the house, but his father was trapped. Against better judgment and to the shock of everyone around during the time, Jacob ran back into the house to save his father. He tried to carry his father out of the house, but even the already athletic Jacob infused with the power of adrenaline was unable to carry his father until unconsciousness struck him. Jacob awoke in the hospital just fine, miraculously sustaining no injuries. His father, on the other hand, was permanently mentally damaged, due to amount of time he spent inside the house asphyxiated. Jacob forced back his tears upon his discovery of this fact.
    He was passed on to the care of his father's brother, who was a drunkard and cared nothing for Jacob or his father's plight. Over the next few years, Jacob would tend not only to his life, but also cared for his father. This increased the amount of responsibility on him, which in turn increased his stress, thus leading to what people perceive as his hot temper and quick irritability. Despite the odds that his father will never return back to normal, Jacob still hopes to this day that his father will one day regain his senses; and it seems like nothing will ever dampen his hopes for the implausible.

  15. @blackRoronoa: Yay, we have enough to begin! Accepted! When I get to a computer, I'll add you to the main post.
     
  16. Can't wait to start!
     
  17. Just wondering, will we all be in separate classes only to venture out into the courtyard to interact or will the 16 year olds be in the same class while the 18 year olds are in the same class and we sort of partner up and go?
