: Jennifer Tate
: As a half breed, Jen is not constrained by the same rules of reality as a demon or a human. However, as this RP takes place in a place outside of Oblivion, this doesn't really apply to anything other than simply being worth noting.
Jen is capable of shapeshifting into one of the four forms of Demon that populate Oblivion. Each one of these brings its own strengths and more often than not weaknesses. Additionally, Jen wears a pair of Gauntlets called Vambraces that allow her to create unique weapons based on each of the four races she becomes.
Ferai: Swift and capable of jumping great heights, this form is ideal for exploration, though it may cause her to outrace her allies due to its natural ease of movement.
Jen forms a pair of twin blades of glowing green energy protruding from her gauntlets. Useful in combat, nothing exceptional.
Undine: Granting the ability to swim and breathe underwater, Jen can far outrace any human in this form. Additionally, she has a form of one directional telepathy that she can use to talk to others over great distances. She cannot however use this form above water as she will asphyxiate to death.
Jen can form a pair of electrical whips underwater. Very useful for fighting crowds of enemies, assuming they are underwater too.
Wraith: Gotta Go Fast. The Wraith have the ability to shift time and slow their surrounding while remaining unaffected themselves, like a typical speedster. This looks to unaffected people as if they are gliding from place to place as a shimmering blur.
Jen can form a whip and a dagger that are very, very useful in combination with her other abilities, slashing at an enemy from afar or darting in a stabbing them, remaining very illusive the entire time.
Djinn: Massive and powerful, Jen is like their smaller but still very scrappy cousin. With skin of metal and an incredible strength this is her default combat form, a race of people feared across Oblivion. Also pretty slow this doesn't really have a lot to offer than crushing power.
Jen can generate two blades that cut with great strength or merge them into one super, overpowering blade that swings with the strength and speed of a crane. Incredibly slow.
: Jen didn't have an easy life growing up. Orphaned at a young age, and going through a string of foster families that didn't really have time for her, Jen hit the road as soon as she could, becoming a waitress and trying to scrap together enough money to put herself through college. She met a boy named Lewis, a soul more like her own than she could have ever imagined.
His soul was more like her own than she could have ever
imagined, one of two unique souls in all of Oblivion.
You see, Jen wasn't just Jen, she was also Arella's Champion, the unwitting Servant of Order and a bunch of other titles she was never sure what to make of when she learned of them.
During an otherwise routine band performance at The Nexus, a club Jen and Lewis worked, Lewis become spooked by
a spooky skeleton
by a monstrous figure in the crowd, towering over the others with glowing red eyes of pure hate and rage. Comforted by Jen afterwards, she tried to convince him it was just one of the usual freaks that frequented the club and forget about it. She couldn't have been more wrong. It was Belahzur, servant of Abaddon, bringer of pain and chaos and general asshole. As Jen and Lewis exited the club they were assaulted by the monster, Jen being wounded and put into a coma while Lewis was abducted, though mysteriously his body was found in a similarly unconscious state a few blocks away.
Approaching her bedridden comatose body in the hospital was Jen's future companion and closest friend, Scree, another servant of Arella. Freeing her spirit from her body, Jen awoke, quickly becoming unnerved by her own body staring up at her.
After calming her, Scree took her to the Nexus, a gathering point for all energy of all the four (five in reality) realms. Giving her her a set of devices called vambraces to awaken the powers inside of her, Jen was quickly dropped into an eternal war between Arella and Abaddon, Order and Chaos respectively, and told that she was the key to setting the balance and keeping Chaos from completely overtaking Order and ripping the realms apart.
Being taken to her first world, Jen was introduced to a shocking truth about herself, that she was not in fact some random waitress that they had sucked into their world for no reason, but that she was in fact a member of this world herself, one of two half breed Human/Demon hybrids in all of existence, free from the rules that bound the immortal and mortal worlds.
With this knowledge, she traveled to each of the three realms of Oblivion and either set things back in place in case of Order allied worlds, and weakened the hold of chaos in Aetha, killing the head of the Wraith Aristocracy and freeing the people somewhat, as free as they ever are.
As she traveled, she discovered that Lewis had been similarly taken in by Chaos as she'd been by Order. In fact, most of the things that she was fixing in the realms turned out to be the work of Belahzur and Lewis working together, the latter hopelessly brainwashed and controlled.
After he killed Chronos, the Timekeeper and person that controlled the flow of energy across all of existence, Jen was forced to head to head to the final and last realm to face off against King Iblis. Defeating him, she ripped out his heart and took it back to the Nexus, using it to restore the Timekeeper and save Oblivion. But her story wasn't finished there. She had one last trial to face, a love to lose.
She faced off against Lewis. Lover against Lover. Demon against Demon. Order against Chaos.
She destroyed him.
Scree, revealed to be the ancient and mighty Abdizur that had had his body lost to him when he was captured by Abaddon, dropped him into the center of Oblivion. A gathering place place for all of the energy of existence. Legends say can it bring the dead back to life, but we never find out sadly.
Jen was then forced to return to Mortalis for her own well being, any more time spent in the Astral Plane would hurting her. She now waits by Lewis's side, praying that he wakes up, reading to him in the vain hopes that he can hear wherever he is.
The End, or The Beginning?
: John Crichton
: John is a human, nothing more, nothing less. However, he does have a few tricks up his sleeves, a necessity as a human in the big wide universe, being a member of an apparently under evolved species.
John is a noted physicist and astronaut, though in a universe where space travel is common the latter doesn't truly count as much of a feat in John's life.
He has an innate understanding of wormholes, understanding when, where and how they form and how to make weapons out of them, although it requires a ship that can create a massive amount of energy to pull this trick off.
He has received a crash course Peacekeeper fighting techniques by Aeryn Sun, being able to hold off her assaults for a while before being overwhelmed. However, he is not Bruce Lee and will not be beating most of his enemies with hand to hand. For that he has Wynona, his personal Pulse Pistol. He is a notable shot with it, usually favoring a technique of using an overwhelming amount of shots with decent accuracy to best his foes.
Additionally, John has a ride along personality in his head. Its name is Scorpius, though Crichton has taken to calling it Harvey. It pesters John about every decision he makes, as they tend to be dangerous and suicidal and the neural clone likes very much to stay alive. This neural clone can even out his neural patterns and body temperature, helping him lie unnoticed, and pull off many other tricks to help John in a tricky position. In fact, it once even stopped and restarted his heart to help him out of a Virtual Reality program he was trapped in.
The clone is very greedy and self serving however, and working with it will usually screw Crichton over in some way.
: John Crichton was the cool kid growing up. Smart, athletic, good with women, he was the head of the football team that became a physicist and an astronaut.
John Crichton became one of the most kicked around and beat up beings in the universe, a member of a race of people that weren't ready for the stars.
During the testing of one of his new theories on interplanetary travel, I.E. a way to increase the speed of a ship by essentially skipping it off a planets atmosphere, a wormhole opened up, sucking poor the poor future madman into an even madder universe.
Immediately he became entangled with a group of fleeing alien prisoners that had freed the living ship known as the Moya as they starburst away. Treated at first as a prisoner by the aliens due to his resemblance to the their captors, the Peacekeepers, he was eventually accepted as one of them alongside another, actual Peacekeeper known as Aeryn Sun. Over the course of the next year, this group of people slowly became like a family.
When Aeryn was hurt in an attack and required replacement tissue that she couldn't regenerate on her own, John bluffed his way onto a top secret Peacekeeper base that was studying wormholes, the selfsame wormholes that had brought him here, and was captured after quite some time incognito due to the incredible senses of the base's commander, a half Peacekeeper half Scarran hybrid known as Scorpius, but not before managing to store the medicine so that others could get it off planet.
Tortured to the point of mental collapse, John wouldn't find out till later, but he had been implanted with a copy of Scorpius's mind that would influence him at times, before finally dominating him completely prior to it's power over him being broken. He also discovered that a run in with a group of ancient and powerful aliens earlier in the year had given him an innate understand of the nature of wormholes, carefully locked away in his mind. Scorpius attempted to extract it from him, but was wholly unsuccessful.
Escaping with the help of his friends, John then fled from Scorpius for the next several years, having run ins that would leave him more and more mentally damaged, including literally having his body taken over so that he could mistakenly believe he killed the woman he loved (Aeryn Sun) which actually led to the actual death of one of his companions, being forced to forsake the possibility of going home, going home and not being able to stay, and destroying a base full of enemy combatments, including all the innocent people on the base. Eventually, though the two of them never reconciled for obvious reasons, Scorpius and John did become allies and even briefly shipmates as Scorpius was stripped of his rank and privilege.
Eventually completely disassembled and put back together, the planet they are residing on is the one that is destroyed, due to them being naturally nomadic by nature.
