Of Love and War

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Jovian, Sep 1, 2011.

  1. Angels - two different types. The Seraphim, white winged angels, and the Valkryies, the black winged angels, have been waging war over territory for as long as they can remember because the territory, a sacred place, supposedly contains an herb that no one knows the use for but its precious and only grows in this territory.

    Imagine Australia being split up into three parts - Western for Seraphim, Easter for Valkryie, and the Central being Neutral because of the humans, which is also where the fighting seems to take place. Humans have taken sides as well, going so far as to fight each other at times when someone has brought up their opinions of the other's favored side. Plus there's the island territory that contains this herb they're fighting for that no one knows what its for.

    Seraphim control the elements of water and earth, and fear fire.

    Valkryie control earth and fire, but fear water.

    Humans have the ability to master all elements - fire, earth, water, air, and spirit.

    The world is just as modern as our own, but is only as advanced as our medieval times with its weaponry. Imagine walking around with a sword when you go into Wal-mart, though its not called Wal-mart.

    In this world, there is a war between the Seraphim and Valkrie, and the Human tribes have taken sides. However, what will happen when a set of twins gets involved, one with a Seraphim and one with a Valkryie?

    This is not "good" versus "evil" but rather a fight over what belongs to whom.

    The premise of this story is that the war has waged for two or three millenia. Angels only live for up to two centuries, and most do not reach that because of the war, though over the last couple centuries they have come fairly close because the war is coming to a stand still. Both sides are slowly dwindling in numbers, and the humans have started becoming restless with the way things have been going on. Soon there will be a war larger than they could even imagine. Fortunately, there are still humans loyal to each side of the angels.

    Angels have a more human form where they retract their wings into their backs, but they can still be identified by the scars where the wings would usually be. They also can be identified because Seraphim are usually more pale than humans and Valkryie tend to be darker, a dark tan to almost black skin tone, compared to most humans.

    Physical traits:
    Seraphim- light/pale colored eyes, pale skin, white wings, light colored hair, scars on back when wings retracted

    Valkryie- dark colored eyes, dark skin, black wings, dark colored hair, scars on back when wings retracted

    Humans- any color of eyes but mostly medium colors, light tan skin, any color hair but mostly medium colors

    I have certain roles to fill as well.
    2 Humans, a set of twins
    Valkryrie to fall in love with a twin
    Seraphim to fall in love with a twin
    Antagonist Valkryie, Seraphim, and Humans (can have more than one of each)

    Character Sheet:
    Age: (humans above 18, angels under 100)
    Physical Description:
    Personality Description:

    The roleplay needs at least four to six people, and no more than seven or eight. I need a set of twins and at least one Seraphim and one Valkryie, preferably two of each race at least for conflict. Yes, this is a forbidden love story.
  2. Name: Eridia
    Age: 43
    Race: Seraphim
    Role: Love interest for the twin
    Physical Description:
    Eridia (open)

    Personality Description: Despite her light and fragile appearance, Eridia is very passionate in every emotion that she experiences. When she's angry, her fury is terrifying and when she's happy, she can brighten rooms. She is very willful in her beliefs and is not easily shaken.

    The war that has raged has been slowing for most of Eridia's time and as such, her life has been generally peaceful. There was little warring going on when she was small and it has nearly come to a standstill now. The world that she knew was one filled with grief and loss, members of the seraphim grieving deaths from the beginning of the war to now. Despite her young age, her time has been mostly spent in the council rooms of her people, who hold her in fairly high regard for her insight, which is great even when she's angry.

    When she had free time, Eridia will frequently take leave and visit the border between the seraphim land and the human land where children from a nearby human village will sometimes play. Eridia discreetly plays games with these children and takes immense joy in speaking with them as they are innocent and untouched by the grief that plagues her people over their losses.
  3. Name: Zalia
    Age: 22
    Role: To be in love with one of the twins
    Physical Description:

  4. It's fine, Zalia, just play with your history as it comes to you if you need to. I would like a couple sentences there though if you can.

  16. Great! Now we just need the other half of the twins. :)
  17. Ya Id play it but there supoosed to be in love with me so ya
  18. If we find no one else interested in the other half of the twin, I'll play it. Had antagonist all planned out, but I can change some things to make the other twin. It'd be cool with me. What do you guys think? If Effort gets an antagonist in, I get the twin in, and I con my brother into playing the other antagonist, we'll be all set to start.

    Effort, you're basically against the fact that someone from your "race" loves another race. Could be a character in love with that character. Could be someone who is so against the idea that he/she can't even begin to imagine the concept of interracial love. Just against the idea.
  19. im cool with it
  20. I'll work on creating the other half of the twins then. And conning my brother into playing if Effort gets a character in.
