Once upon a time, the creatures of myth and long forgotten legend were being hunted. So, they banded together and created a settlement for creatures like them, where they could live in peace. If only the story had a happy ending. --- The town of Orenda had its roots with magical creatures, but the passing centuries have drastically changed the area. The town still has a thick forest surrounding the majority of the town, leaving one side open to the sea. However, the town is no longer just inhabited by creatures of lore. Humans and hunters alike have moved in, forcing the creatures to hide among the humans as best they can. What was once a safe haven is now a battleground waiting to happen. Still, the game is different now. The hunters must work away from the eyes of regular humans, evading suspicion as best they can. After all, constant deaths would eventually draw attention, wouldn’t it? --- Rules: Post at least once a week to keep the roleplay moving. No godmodding. There will be violence, but please don't get super graphic. Romance is encouraged! I don't mind if your character's are discriminatory, but please don't extend that viewpoint outside of the roleplay. No perfect characters. Pre-established relationships are perfectly okay! --- Hunters: The term is used to describe humans that hunt magical creatures and seek to purge them from the land. They have various reasons for this, like seeking revenge for the death of a family member. However, the vast majority of hunters have been trained to hunt magical creatures since birth. It’s almost like a family tradition. Magical Creatures: The name applies to any creature, regardless of species, that has a humanoid appearance, but can change into their magical form at will. Shifting back and forth may be the only magic at some of them have, but it’s fairly common for each species to have different magical abilities. Humans: Normal humans with no background of hunters or magical creatures. The Town: Orenda is surrounded by a thick forest for the most part, but there’s a gap in the trees on one side of the town, allowing access to a beach. Travel to and from Orenda is rather difficult because of this. From an outsider’s perspective, Orenda is a normal town. There’s a elementary, middle, and high school, emergency services are available, there’s a city council, etc. There’s a variety of small businesses scattered about, offering to work to residents. The only downside is that Orenda is rather isolated from the rest of the world, due to the geography. --- Magical Creature Form: Name: Age: Gender: Pronouns: Sexual Orientation: Magical Creature: Humanoid Appearance: Abilities: Personality: History: Other: Hunter Form: Name: Age: Gender: Pronouns: Sexual Orientation: Prey of Choice: Tactics: Appearance: Personality: History: Other: Human Form: Name: Age: Gender: Pronouns: Sexual Orientation: Appearance: Personality: History: Other: ---- My Characters: Name: Kyla Syave Age: 16 Gender: Agender Pronouns: They/Them Sexual Orientation: Pansexual Magical Creature: Mermaid Humanoid Appearance: Abilities: Kyla has the ability to manipulate water and they're rather good at it. However, they can only manipulate a little at a time. Trying to control too much water will overwhelm them, so they're restricted to using only a rope of water at a time. Personality: Kyla is waterbug, to put it simply. They spent a lot of time in the ocean in their mermaid form. To her, the ocean is her safe haven. Although Kyla is friendly and makes friends easily, their choice to be alone so often has made it difficult for them to have any close relationships. Still, they're very sweet and kind to everyone and genuinely enjoys talking to people. History: Their father died when Kyla was quite young, presumably from an accident while he was fishing at sea. Kyla believes this wholeheartedly, but her mother is convinced that it was the work of hunters. Her mother hasn't stepped into the sea in over a decade, but she has long since given up on keeping Kyla away from the ocean. Other: Her tail is a light purple. --- Name: Delilah "Raine" Casey Age: 17 Gender: Transgender male Pronouns: He/Him Sexual Orientation: Demisexual demiromantic Appearance: Personality: Raine is very quiet, always keeping to himself and avoiding attention whenever possible. He's very isolated and doesn't seem to have any friends. He's often lonely, but he tries to convince himself it's for the best. He has an avid interest in photography and spends a lot of of his time in the woods or by the sea, snapping photos. When he's not photographing, he's sitting at home, watching TV. History: Raine moved to Orenda when he was fifteen. Due to heavy bullying at his old school, he's extremely withdrawn. His parents heavily disapprove of his gender identity and his hair and insist on calling him Delilah. He's also compared to Camille a lot, his seemingly flawless little sister. Other: Raine isn't out to anyone in Orenda, so everyone knows him as Delilah.
