There are multiple continents on the planet Ethil, but the largest and most active is Ploaria. While peaceful, it is only a few years away from becoming a war-torn land, since three organizations are fighting for control of it. The locations controlled by either of the three combined come up to about 42% of Ethil, and that number increases everyday, no matter how slight. Living in the large place are two bounty hunters who were former mercenaries working all around, mainly for the three organizations. One day they get a target that ultimately changes their lives forever.
There are many notable landmarks across Ethil:
Pendle - The most notable port city in Mormead, located on the west coast. Most travelers and refugees usually come through this large place because it is the safest way to get into Mormead. This is because the three organizations that fight for control of the land have control over the port cities, and the one that has control over Pendle is the most lenient to visitors. It is for this reason that a lot of entertainment facilities and hotels are set up here, so they can make money out of those who come from other lands. The size of the population numbers in the tens of thousands. The weather is almost always clear and sunny.
Gakulk Lake - The largest lake in Mormead, located in the Mideast of the land. It is also the most dangerous lake due to the fact that the three large towns surrounding it in a triangle-like formation are owned the three organizations respectively. Since this large body of water stands inbetween them, they have decided to make Gakulk their battleground. Their are islands in the middle of the lake as well, which they use to their advantage. The weather around the lake varies from clear and sunny somedays to cloudy and windy on others.
Naporia - A large town located around the center of Mormead. It is neutral ground, and is known as the trade capital of the land. Almost everything that is made is sold here, attracting many people who just filled their pockets with hard-earned cash. The weather can be clean sunny and windy all that the same time.
(More locations will be added as the Roleplay progresses.)
Haruko is a fairly tall man with an athletic build and rough skin, which is filled with scars, mainly around his torso. He has dark brown eyes and blonde hair, as well as small ears and an average size nose and forehead. His attire is very bizarre as the man doesn't like to be plain and simple like most others. He wears a mix of a white-and-red hoodie/cape, blue leather under that, and pieces of silver armor that covers his knees and shoulders. His weapon of choice is a curved blade along with a metal-plated shield.
Jonathan is a very serious man who always puts the safety of innocent people before his own.His former job as a mercenary may tell you that he was in it only for the money, but it was actually always about the civilians. Whenever an organization got too out of control and decided to waste the lives of non-soldiers to force their way into new territory, Jonathan would align himself with the group that was directly fighting them head on at the time in order to stop this evil. He values human life, but wouldn't mind taking it if it meant that he could protect others from the people in question.
That being said, Jonathan can seem very kind if you have a conversation with him, though if you strike a nerve during said conversation, for instance, bad mouthing civilians for being 'lazy' and not fighting in the current wars, he would quickly show anger, no matter who you were. During the job he can seem pretty cold, but that is only because he is so invested in protecting other lives.
- A great Swordsman who is a master with the Longsword and Dagger.
- A master of many martial arts including Karate, Muay Thai, Judo, etc.
- A Blacksmith who is very good with fixing equipment on the go.
- An expert at setting traps as well as detecting them.
- An artist on the side.
- His armor slows him down a considerable amount.
- Not so great at detecting threats among people like he is detecting traps.
- Doesn't perform well over emotional grief, as he is very soft under that heavy exterior.
- Couldn't be stealthy to save his own life (which is why the best course of action in that kind of situation is to lure the enemies to him, thus sending them straight into the traps he set up beforehand).
Name: Grayston Tilber
Height: five foot, eleven inches
Weight: 180 lbs
Appearance: (Color to come soon)
Sooty colored hair with dark skin, Grayston isn't very memorable as far as his appearances go. Save for a few scars here and there that he earned over the years, he could pass for any other normal citizen. He wears loose fitting and comfortable clothes, more concerned with his ability to move fluidly than actual protection. In the way or armor, he wears a set of leather gloves, and little else.
Personality: Grayston is a quick witted, lazy sort of man. He'll get his work done, but trust him to find the easiest and fastest way to do it-- if only so it gives him more time to socialize and try and woo the ladies. And yet, as lazy as he is, he's an impatient sort, liable to leap before looking; and it tends to get him into trouble.
Strengths: Grayston's a quick and wiry man. His reflexes are sharp and he's impressive with a blade.
Weakness: Grayston can be narrow sighted. While he's got speed, he's not built for sheer strength. Plus, he's all legs. Get him on the ground and he looses his quick-footed advantage.
The large city of Pendle was very active today, which wasn't surprising due to the fact that is was always so lively. In order to keep a roof over you and your family's heads you had to get out and work, whether it be farming, construction, hunting, mercenary work, or a variety of other jobs that you may be skilled in. There were a numerous amount of daycare facilities for children so that women could work if they wanted to as well. The technology in this medieval-like age may not have been good enough to reduce work for a lot of people, but it didn't matter since they seemed to like their work. Perhaps it was because of the feeling you get when you are helping provide for those you love? The weather was clear and sunny, which concluded that today was a great day to work too, so who would be angry on such a day anyway?
"Come on, wake up Grayston! We don't have all day to track our newest target! His wanted posted just got posted up today, so he could be out of town by night fall, or if he is fast, in just a few hours!" Jonathan shouted to his lazily sleeping friend right after he opened the door to his room, an annoyed look on his face. The two of them stayed at the Ace Inn just like they always did when doing business in Pendle. They were bounty hunters, so usually the catch of the day would pay for their stay that night, using the remaining cash for food, entertainment, and sometimes a part of it would even be held tight for savings. Jonathans' room was right next to Grayston's on the second floor in the colorful inn. Every floor was painted differently, and even the rooms didn't look the same as each other. Various antiques were placed in the rooms as well for something to look at and marvel when you stepped into the location you payed to sleep in, rather than just sleep in it. The carpet was the same brown everywhere in the inn however, which somehow seemed to fit the rainbow around it.
"The poster doesn't have a name for him, which is going to make this a harder task than usual, but look at the pay out! It is huge" his face turned from annoyed to an excited smile as he raised the wanted poster towards his friend's face, wiggling it about. It gave the photo of a man in a black cloak with the hood covering most of his body, which again was going to make it difficult to find him, especially if he took it off after the hasty photo was taken, but the civilians of Pendle were very helpful in regards to catching criminals, and if the two of them asked a few people if they saw a man in a black cloak, they would get his location soon enough. The price on his head was shown to be $25,000, which was pretty high for a bounty. Quadruple that could buy you a small home. The duo was used to $500 - $5,000 jobs, sometimes higher, but it was rare since a criminal would have to kill a numerous amount of people or cause heavy damage to the city to get anything above $5,000 on them.
