    Connection:
    Cybil is the first cousin once removed of the master. She heard of his successful business ventures overseas and decided she had to see for herself. She convinced her parents to let her travel to the master provided she take her own butler, Roderick, along to keep an eye on her mischievous self. Now that she's here, she's determined to help out any way she can and upstage the master whenever possible.
     
  3. @Shokkou You are supposed to create a butler based on the sheet that was provided, but this was a good effort and a plus that you did a maid too! >:3
     
  4. Oh, sorry! I found the random generator first and got overly excited when I found this challenge, so I kinda only skimmed what we were supposed to do. XD
     
  5. Well not you get to to flesh out both butlers, if you want!
     
  6. Alright!

    So the other butler is named Quincey and is the head butler of the Winchester estate (Cybil's relative). He is fiercely protective and possessive of the master and the staff, but can be harsh in how he corrects the other maids and butlers. His hacking talents are put to use in his self-appointed role as the Winchester family's image watchdog. He prowls the net and destroys the lives of any who speak ill of his master, and is always in a gleeful and pleasant mood right after having done so. While most of the time his corrective measures are simply a hateful verbal lashing, he also sometimes gives physical lashings with his whip for more serious gaffes. He acts like this is an unfortunate necessity although deep down it thrills him and he lives to see the maids in particular slip up.

    He does not like Cybil, as she is in the role of a maid but due to her relation to the master is outside the normal chain of command. Naturally, this means he doesn't get along with Roderick either since Roderick is her guardian while she's living with the master. Ever since they moved in, his secret and most fervent wish has been to isolate Cybil and get her to make a mistake so he can whip her and reestablish himself as the sole dominant head of the household staff.

  8. Name: Simon Everdeen

    Affection: 2
    Skill: 4
    Cunning: 1
    Luck: 1
    Will: 9
    Favor: 4
    Spirit: 90

    Personality: He is an Expert, a master of his trade, when it comes to being classy and Butler-like this guy is the best. He has memorized every book related to manners and properly presenting ones self out there and he practices his skills every day. He is a magnificent cook and can set a table like no other. His prowess as a butler and server have elevated him to the status of a legend among fellows of his trade. They refer to him as 'The Purple Unicorn' because of his purple attire and seemingly perfect appearance and rarity, this title also refers to his deadliness for his horn is sharper than any others'. He is the Right-Hand Man, his master places nothing but trust in him and he always delivers when given a task. Their relationship goes even deeper however Simon has been at his masters' side since they were both young boys and they have grown to be Trusted Friends. Over time he has grown to view his subordinates as his children due to his mastery of his trade, his master also falls under this for he views himself as being the one who matured faster. His flaws are few, but he will often reffer to himself as a Cynic for he is very good at pinpointing the flaws of any plan, but fails miserably at noticing its gains. He judges both his co-workers and master secretly because of this trait but will only speak his mind in the rarest of private circumstances. He has the qualities of an Inspector, able to deduce with a quickness often likened to Sherlock Holmes. He is often spoken to as a confidante by both his co-workers and acquaintances due to both his Cynical attitude and his Deducing skills for he is very good at pinpointing their problems and helping them find ways to overcome them. Sometimes he does more harm than he helps however. Behind this mask of politeness lies a Wicked Tongued Demon that only one person besides himself knows exists. He secretly enjoys the physical and mental trauma* of others and often speaks of other people as fools to his only Confidante**.


    *See Special Feature 4

    ** See Maid

    Appearance: His Uniform is a stark Purple accented with white accessories that offsets his striking Green hair and pupil-less eyes. His uniform is sleek and well kept at all times, lending him a calm and neat yet strong and dangerous demeanor at all times. He is not known to show emotion and as such his face retains no wrinkles and a rather bland expression at all times. His true weakness are in fact his eyes. His closer acquaintances can judge his emotions by simple looking into them, however, most of them also know how dangerous it is to do so*. His eyes have two known states of being. When he is behind his mask they are a bland and opal white, with no pupils**; when he is excited however, they glaze over and turn a dark and striking orange. He does not gain pupils when this happens however. At almost all times his hands are covered by white gloves***. He says it is to keep up appearances, but in truth it is to hide the blood stains that dot his hands. His body is like that of a greek statue, godlike and muscular, toned perfectly with a bronzed skin that makes the ladies go ooh-la-la.This only adds to his dangerous yet calm look and frightens away most males whilst attracting most females****.

    *Looking into ones eyes is considered rude, and he often punishes those who act rudely towards him *subtle wink*

    **See special features 1

    *** Thrill-ah! Yah!

    ****Too bad for the females though, seeing how he often converts them into his personal playthings. Needless to say most don't survive the first night..


    Special Features*:
    1: His eyes are completely white and have no pupils.
    2: He is a skilled and active hacker.
    3: He has dark skin, either pigment or tanned.
    4: He is a sadist, and excited by causing physical and mental pain.
    5: His body is like that of a Greek statue, godlike an muscular.

    *Pretty self explanatory here, no real need to expand.


    Roots: He sees the master and maids as his children.

    Weaponry/Arsenal/Abilities/Powers (WAAP): Due to a rather.. interesting accident, he has gained the power to bend fire to his will through simple hand motions. He can also breath fire, he us apparently part dragon somewhere along the lines of his lineage.

    He carries on his person, at all times, a simple black leather whip that can extend and retract infinitely by simply his willing of it and also holds complete resistance to fire*.

    He is Foreboding and can cast foreshadowing on any future danger due to an inherent 'future sense' passed on by his grandmother. IT does not do anything other than give him a bad feeling when danger is afoot and he often voices it**.

    He has immense skill in Lock picking. So much so that he can pick the locks of magical abilities and even minds!***

    He is a skilled and active hacker. He knows where you live, who your dating, and all about that awkward mole on your left butt cheek****.


    *He may or may not light his whip on fire from time to time in moments of excitement..

    **Never underestimate the power of the "I've got a bad feeling about this."

    ***Yes, the exclamation mark was completely necessary.

    ****Sleeping dogs anyone?

    PS: MAID IS ON THE WAAAAAAY
     
  9. Name: Raella Everdeen

    Maid Types: Pure (Affection +1, Cunning -1) and Heroine (Will +1, Luck -1)

    Athletics: 3
    Affection: 4
    Skill: 2
    Cunning: 0
    Luck: 0
    Will: 3
    Favor: 8
    Spirit: 30

    Personality: Raella has two dominant personalities, each controlled by what she refers to as her 'Oni-San'. Her main personality is that of a childish, young, innocent, cute, and sweet child. She loves and is amazed by everything the world has to offer, genuinely trying her hardest to succeed where she can. Due to her complete lack of luck however, she is constantly embarrassing herself by overreaching and over trying and ending up in failure. She is not daunted by this however, and always gets back up when she is knocked down. She loves sweets, in fact she is obsessed by them. They are the only thing in the world that she will horde and some view this as her greedy side. She is also known for bouts of sweet gorging when she is under stress. In her daily life she is in no way connected to the Butler Simon Everdeen. He chooses to let her live her daily life as she pleases, free of his restraints. However, when he calls for her, he reigns in her leash by activating her second personality with a remote switch.

    Once converted Raella changes completely, going into an unconscious state for a few moments before awaking as her second self. Her second self is that of an emotionless android that uses human blood as fuel. She is often used by Oni-san as a tool to eliminate certain targets that threaten his master and coworkers. Raella does not lose her sentience however, she instead becomes completely apathetic towards others, only listening to Oni-san's commands. In this secondary mode her Athletics, skill, and cunning all max out whilst all of her other traits revert to zero. She becomes an extremely well trained killing machine on the hunt for human blood, whilst retaining her clumsiness*. Her greedy nature makes it's form in a sense of self preservation. She will always make sure she comes out alive, even if it means going against Oni-san's orders. Also, she hates sweets in this mode, preferring bitter foods.

    *This entire piece is an Anime Cliche', I love me a good Anime Cliche'.**

    **Actually, scratch that, all Cliche's are amazing.

    Appearance: She has the Appearance of an twelve year old girl even though she professes she is twenty three. She adores dresses and her Maid profession sees her wearing a different colored maid outfit every day. Underneath her outfit is what seems to be full body athletic tights. These however, are Unobtainium* plates that protect her fragile robotics from outside damage. The only area's not covered are her feet (below her ankles) and her hands (After he wrists) The plates however, can camoflauge so as to look like her skin, this takes fuel to use and lessens the time she can be in her Main state (happy + clumsy personality).** Upon switching to her secondary state she sheds all clothing (It bursts into flames) and is left with nothing but her plating. She is flat chested and has a child like appearance.*** Her Plating/tights/avatar reffering/ whatever you want to call it is a dark navy blue. Her hair is long and straight, it is a striking orange color. She has two sets of eyes, when she is in her Main state she has happy Golden eyes that add a fire to her demeanor that is both warm and exciting. In her secondary form they are a dull and emotionless green shade, her expression is also detached and plain in this form. She has a smal word written below a bar code on the back of her neck. "Princess"

    *Pocahontas!

    **Did I mention her Fuel source is human blood? she drinks it in the same way a vampire would and if she drops below a certain amount in her storage tanks she automatically converts to secondary form and feeds on the closest human..

    ***SHE HAS NO SEXUAL ORGANS OR PARTS! Perverts >.> Sheesh..


    Uniform: Navy.
    Hair: Orange.
    Eyes: Green.

    Special Features:
    1: She has an unusual uniform: tights (treat as a skirt).
    2: She is an android/gynoid.
    3: She is a vampire.
    4: She is a princess.
    5: She is greedy.
    6: She has magic: she is a fortune teller who can read the future.

    WAAP: She is extremely intelligent in her secondary form, she can predict the near future by observing every action around her in an instant. She can sense human bodily functions as well, muscle movement, stress, high/low blood pressure, sexual attraction, everything that we feel or do, she can see and predict our next movement. This ability causes regular humans to believe she has magic powers.*,**

    She has the speed and strength of a Vampire Blood Lord in her Secondary form and feeds like one would.**

    She has the strength and speed of a Gynoid in her secondary form as well as apathy toward everyone but herself and Oni-san.**

    She can bend the Carbon in non Biological matter around her to create Weapons in an instant in her secondary form, she prefers Kunai and Shurikens form some strange reason.***

    She can send an electromagnetic signal into the brains of nearby humans, suspending them in time for a short duration (5 minutes) she can then chose to release one of these humans from this state and create a world for the two of them. Upon using this ability almost all of her power is drained and she goes into a state similar to Hypovolemic shock and must be immediately given human blood or she will suffer death.*****

    *,**,***,****,*****All of these abilities cost power to use or keep active, the more stars, the more power it takes. Five star is instant Hypovolemic Shock.

    Stress Explosion: She starts eating like crazy.

    Roots: She became a maid to acquire the skills to be an ideal bride one day.
    Weapon: A seemingly endless supply of shurikens or kunai.
    Maid Power: World for Two: By taking 1D6 Stress, she can create a ′world′ for her and one other character, where for 5 minutes no one else can intrude.

    Next is the history of the two, both individual and shared.
     
  10. She was born emotionless, he was filled to the brim. It was only after they met each other that they truly changed into who they are now...

    Her name was Princess and she was treated as such, however she was made without emotion so she never understood or appreciated the title or gesture. Princess spent her days observing her servants. They came and went daily, with new employees often cropping up weekly. Sometimes a complete staff change would occur in as little as two weeks. This perplexed Princess. She knew not why they disappeared nor did she know why they were her in the first place. A daily routine began to form in her schedule.

    Awaken.

    Dress or be dressed by her servants.

    Train both physically and mentally.

    Eat.

    Sleep.

    This process continued and stretched into infinite. She soon forgot how it had all begun. The pain, the torture, the creation. Eventually she was simply here, it was all she had known or was ever going to know. She had pushed her skills to near perfection. Each day the training was more rigorous than the last, yet she never fell behind. She was always able to complete the challenge. She had always overcame. She was perfection..

    ***
    She awoke, she silk downy softness of her needless large bed surrounded her. For a moment she sat there, something not far from human enjoyment filled her. It was dwarfed and unrecognizable to anything she had observed, but there was a spark of something there. It piqued her curiosity. Slowly she rose from her enclave of pillows and softness, her artificial skin being brushed by the light breeze produced by her open window. In an instant she had seen it all. Her room was full, three servants rushed busily around her, all female, they gathered her apparel in preparation for her dressing. A lounging chair with a book that had been there since she had been sat in the corner, untouched and unmoved. A human breakfast had been prepared for her, the smell wafting into the sensors located in her nostrils. One of the windows were open, one of her servants looked into the horizon with an entranced look on her face. She ignored the other two as she did so.

    Princess was confused, this was not part of the routine. The servants were always busy in the morning, never did they have time to lounge around. Princess approached the newcomer, her hand almost reached out to touch her, but the girl turned to her before it did so. She scowled at Princess. Princess turned her head in curiosity, much like a confused dog would do.

    "Who.." Princess stopped in her own tracks, her own voice surprised her. What surprised her more was how long it had been since she had spoken. She thought back, her eyes trailing of as she did so.

    She couldn't remember.

    The newcomer stormed past her and joined her fellows. Upon deciding on her dress the newcomer approached her. Princess sensed what the humans called anger from her. She put the move able yet beautiful black dress on Princess forcefully. Make sounds of anger and frustration as she did so. Princess studied the behavior. Upon further analysis Princess realized that the girl was also an Android, but it seemed that, unlike Princess, this girl showed a great deal of emotion. This intrigued her and Princess would have inquired further into the matter, had the doors not swung open at the very moment.

    A man spoke from the darkness beyond the doorway.

    "It's time."

    Princess moved forward from the strange hiccup of the morning and followed a retinue of Suited men to the training facilities. There she first completed the mental practices, as always, and flew through them with ease. She then entered the prep room, as was customary prior to Physical training sessions.

    In reality the prep room was more of a prep pod, Princess leaned back into the Vertical stretcher as the pod hooked up to her systems. She was given fuel and general repairs and diagnostics for the next few minutes. Her thoughts idly wandered to this morning. For some reason she could not get it out of her head. Perhaps she would request a memory wipe at dinner tonight.. It had been so long since she had done so..

    The pod opened and she was at the training grounds, it coupled as a transporter and was very helpful for getting around the facility, not that she had used it outside of her training however..

    She stepped out and entered the grounds. Same as always she found herself in a large black room with a wall light that lined the whole perimeter and a small viewing chamber to her upper left. It wouldn't be too long before her opponent arrived..
    ***
    "You see director, this new piece will be more than a match for Princess, we assure you." The skittish gentleman spoke up in a fit of boldness.

    "Is that so?" The director replied, motioning towards the representative of his robotics engineers, "and if you are wrong then..? What do you ascertain would be your punishment?"

    "I- uh... I think we should let Designation Scarlet speak for herself sir."

    "Indeed"
    ***
    Princess looked away from the One way windows above her as her opponent made its entrance. The opponent this time was a girl, however something about her confused Princess.

    "you?"

    The girl snarled at her and readied herself for combat. Princess had never fought one of her servants before. Perhaps the psychological aspect created here was a test of her resolve. Perhaps the Director wished to see if she could eliminate targets she had past knowledge of and relations with. Princess did not know the extent of her emotional parameters,but even to a regular human this would not be enough. No something else was afoot. Maybe her Servants were stronger than the testing drones she had fought until now, maybe-

    Her thought were cut short as her opponent rushed her.

    Princess barely dodged the blow, a rush of wind blew in her face as her opponent flew past.

    fast

    Immediately upon touching the ground her opponent turned and flew at her.

    too fast.

    Princess couldn't dodge this time, the girl fist struck her head on and sent her flying into the wall. This was problematic, the training drones up until now had barely even touched her, this opponent was leagues ahead of the others. Princess steeled her resolve and made her judgements of her opponents strength and speed due to her last to strikes. She then adjusted her own parameters before lifting herself up again. The enemy charged again, this time Princess caught the extended arm, sidestepping and snapping it in half as she past. Her opponents momentum took her forward and she rolled out of control, slamming against the wall at high speeds. Princess held her opponents arm as she looked at her curiously.

    "You are fragile Designation: Scarlet, my calculations show that you have no way of beating me in your current state."

    Her opponents snarl worsened, she growled and leapt at Princess. Princess prepared to repeat the maneuver on her opponents other arm, but her opponent was traveling to fast and grabbed hold of Princess's face as she made contact, slamming her face against the wall with brutal force. Princess recalculated as her opponent began beating her with her detached arm. Princess was surprised to read that her opponents strength had increased to twice it's prior level, along with her speed. Princess then re adjusted her own parameters and counter attacked. She grabbed her opponents head this time and slammed it into the ground, a soft crunch sounded out as her opponent went limp. Princess stood up and faced the one way windows, bowing softly to the director who she knew was perched behind them.


    The next day was worse. She entered the training facility again, but was instead met by two of yesterday's opponents. Apparently they were re-producible, unlike herself. This would be a problem.

    She managed to beat them, barely, but the next day was the same.

    Four of them faced her this time.

    The next day was eight.

    Then sixteen.

    and then..

    Princess ran the calculations over and over again as she faced a horde of thirty two of her newly appointed enemy. It was impossible. She had told the director that defeating this many was beyond her capabilities, but still he insisted. She had determined that each one retained the memories of their past selves. For that reason each individual retained the power level of the last one that had died. Princess saw no limit to their strength or speed, but had observed that it only increased to two times what it had been before, much like their numbers. The problem being was that the last one she had killed had matched her at her own max power output. Therefor, given past occurrences, this is where she would lose and most likely die. She had determined this on the second day and informed the director of such. He simply replied that she would win.The only feasible way she had seen beating them would be using their emotions, however their animosity towards her was to strong for communication to be possible. They were animal like and refused to speak at all when in the arena.


    Princess saw no reason to fight, so she did not dodge when they came at her, she could not if she wanted to. They hit her before she could react, and so she was struck down. Darkness took hold as fist after fist dented her armor plating, slowly grinding away until her internal workings were bare. Then she fell to darkness, nothing was left for Princess, she was dead..

    Don't worry this isn't done yet. :P​
