Shintaion: Resistance

  • So many newbies lately! Here is a very important PSA about one of our most vital content policies! Read it even if you are an ancient member!


Original poster
[align=center]Shintaion: Resistance[/align]

Today we mark one of possibly the last history lessons in our world today. Our world use to be controlled in unison by Humans, Demons, Elves, and Forbidden Beasts. That control was disrupted as the humans took an evil nature with the revelation of their own technology. Forbidden Beasts found a peaceful accord amidst the chaos but the Demons and Elves were not so lucky. There was also one more creature that was not talked about, the dark beast.


These creatures were ruthless and not kept well on a leash. To fight not only these powerful creatures but the demons and elves as well, humans had to develop a new weaponry. The two major advances were the plasma weaponry made as well as the Armours. Armours, are mechanical suits designed to be highly mobile and capable of firing heavy automatic weaponry. Once these armours became main stream they got their own specialized equipment with five centimeter rounds. At full height they stand at about twelve feet.


With power came chaos and that chaos turned Lavion and Teros against each other. Shintaion also had its own share of civil disputes making Abscus and Shrivisk the only countries not at war. Thankfully most of that came to an end quickly due to the efforts of a small group of people. These people are rumored to have high positions of power now a days. Along their journey they found demons and elves that had been in hiding since the war. Although their feelings towards humans were dark they decided to aid in the fight against the corrupt government. Once that came to an end the woman named Heather Halberd rose quickly in political rank and was promoted to president of Shintaion.

Again it was not long to last as revenge had snuck up on Shintaion. It was a brief battle and one that did not have a happy ending. The president was ushered away to Abscus as well as what survivors could find a boat or airship. The dark beasts had successfully broke the chains of their own bondage and ravaged the Shintaion landscape. Once that continent was taken they turned their attention to the already weakened Lavion. Finding that easy enough to take they focused on their neighbors next, Teros. However, they found that harder to take as they were primarily a military nation. The fight destroyed a good portion of the dark beasts but Teros was eventually claimed.


Now Abscus and Shrivisk are the only ones to take on the remaining threat and resist complete annihilation.

Alright history lesson is over everyone, now to tell you about the different kinds of people you can sign up as.


Primarily a technologically savvy race who specializes in guns and armours. The guns are plasma weapons able to deal moderate damage to dark beasts and the armours, as said before, are mobile suits with a max height of 12' and average round size of 5 cm.

Along with those technologically advanced features, there are also much smaller advances that we know as nanites. These nanites are programmed to give telekinetic control over certain elements. These nanites reproduce inside the blood stream so once they are in they are permanent. People with these nanites are called Technomancers. The only difference between them and a normal magician is they cannot make a fireball out of midair or things like that. They must have their element present.


Demons are capable of channeling their inner energy into their weapons and attacks. This allows for a high amount of endurance as well as high attack power. They know their way around martial arts rather well and some are quick to temper. Nearly all don't know how to use guns or armours.


The more stealthy and agile of the species, the elves use their unique tracking and speed advantage to be hired assassins or special operatives. They do not carry heavy weapons but they make due with smaller items. Again like the demons they do not know how to use guns or armours.

Forbidden Beasts

Now I know there are questions going to be asked about these creatures but I asked the creator to make you a guide. Here is the basic description of what these creatures are.

King Weavel said:
Forbidden beasts are best described as people with some beast like traits and behavior. They walk up right. They have tails. They have claws in place of nails. They are cold blooded creatures and have live young.

They are able to use elemental energy based on what type of beast they are (IE: Ice beasts use ice energy). Today Forbidden Beasts use regular weapons like guns and bladed weaponry but they can turn the weapon into pure energy (IE: Earth sword, Ice Hammer, Light Spear). While these weapons are in energy form they can focus enough magical energy to create low to mid level spells. So nothing too extravagant.

There are 8 breeds of Forbidden Beasts: Fire (Survive and easily walk through Lava), Wind (Able to fly with their wings and have lungs capable of surviving high up in the sky), Earth (The most defensive of the beasts, very sturdy skin), Ice (Can also use a mild form of healing but more physically weak than the other beasts), Water (Can easily survive and breathe underwater with their gills), Thunder (The fastest of the breeds), Dark (The strongest in terms of physical strength and able to command versatile dark energy) and Light Beasts (Light energy and the most powerful healing abilities).

They are rather civilized and friendly creatures despite their name but they do have beast like habits and prefer to speak in an animal language of barks, grunts, roars etc but they DO have the ability to speak English. As of late they have become more humanized having to live in cities to make a living, thus it is VERY uncommon to find a forbidden beast who cannot speak English.

Their culture is one of respecting and paying tribute to nature as they draw their elemental powers from it. They preferred to live around nature (IE in forests, beaches for water beasts, etc) However, as the world has changed, they have become somewhat disconnected from it, as cities grew so did their civilization. Moving into cities was a way to keep up with the times and become generally neutral during the war. They also have much more respect to females of their race than humans do, thus both genders are more equal in Forbidden Beast society.

They were once feared for their power, hence the name Forbidden Beasts, creatures considered unholy. But their power has declined over the years and they are no longer as feared and condemned as in the past.

Basically Forbidden Beasts can use regular weapons from sword to gun but also have the ability to turn them into pure energy. From this they can use this as a conduit to control their element.

There you have it, we will all be starting in Abscus and I'd like to keep characters pure so no mixing. PM me any questions you have. Now onto the character sheets.






Equipment: (If necessary)


Allright, here goes. Done, both characters. That's it for me. Tell me if I need to edit anything. I am rusty when it comes to RPing after that long break, after all.

Name: Monsoon "Sky Knight" Griffith

Age: 21

Specie: Wind Beast.

Element/Specialty: Specializes in wind energy. Due to the nature of it however, he prefers to use for long range combat rather than close range. He primarily creates throwing weapons and some wind based techniques. He also makes use of his fast speed and flight capabilities while fighting.

Appearance: Rather average for a wind beast, meaning he's somewhat thin weight wise so he can fly with his wings easily and he's about 8 feet tall. His wings are white and bird like. His skin is green for the most part, with some black stripes. His tail is smaller compared to that of other beasts so as to aide flight. Wears a standard light-weight flight uniform that has holes for his wings to poke through. It has a logo of a flaming wing on it.

Equipment: None.

Personality: Monsoon is rather selfish and materialistic but a generally a good person at heart. He has a bit of a drinking problem, flirts with women a bit too often and is a rather perverted. But he will obey orders, as long as he trusts the one giving orders and doesn't believe he'll get killed. Rumor has it, he is smitten with Ramia and all signs seem to confirm that.

History: He lived in a rather run down Shintaion city long before the war with the dark beasts began. His father was considered a hero who fought in several Shintaion conflicts. He earned the title of "The Sky Knight" for his skill with arial combat. Monsoon's sickly mother however died while his father was out fighting, leaving Monsoon with no one to raise him but family friends as his father was usually out fighting.

Monsoon's father promised he'd return after one final battle and retire, but he never came back...This left Monsoon with a deep resentment for him, feeling his father cared more about heroics and fame than his own flesh and blood!

He did grow attached to his new family but when he grew of age, he decided he had to repay them for taking him in. They were rather poor and struggled to feed him for all those years so Monsoon vowed to repay them. He became a mercenary around the age of sixteen, hoping to strike it rich. He left Shintaion that day and began to travel the world.

He eventually befriended a Fire Beast woman by the name of Ramia during his travels and joined with her to form a small mercenary group known as "Flint Griffith Hunters". They became rather famous after capturing several of the most wanted criminals around the world. Monsoon's name was recognized by the media and they dubbed him the Sky Knight, much to his dismay as he despised his father.

When war broke out in Shintaion with the dark beasts ravaging it, Monsoon was horrified. His foster family had survived and made it out but the city of course, was leveled to the ground. He and Ramia immediately decided to join with the Abscus and Shrivisk forces, realizing they could no the dark beasts were the greatest threat and thus, the best pay off.(Revenge was another factor as well)

Name: Ramia Flint

Age: 22

Specie: Forbidden Beast, Fire Beast

Element/Specialty: Fire energy is her specialty. She primarily uses it for close up combat, preferring to create fire claws or other close range weapons. She does on occasion use some ranged techniques but they pale in comparison power wise. She also makes use of her speed during combat and is not above using her bare fists to strike as well if she is out of fire energy.

Appearance: About 7 feet tall. She is not as thin as Monsoon weight wise, but rather slender in general so as to allow for agility. Red skin and she has a claw shaped birthmark on her right shoulder. She wears clothing that resembles a female soldier's outfit, however it is customized and has a logo of a flaming wing on it and the name.

Equipment: None.

Personality: She is rather stubborn and tough despite her rather easy life. She does not like to let others make her choices for her and values freedom. She is very brave in general but at times might not know when to surrender. She also is not very fun loving and is rather serious, she does not joke around like Monsoon does. She also tends to question authority far more than Monsoon does. she trusts only herself, Monsoon, her family and a few select others.

History: She was adopted and raised by the prestigious and wealthy Flint family of Shrivisk at a young age. They were humans but despite this, they raised her well and treated her quite nicely, making sure she received the best education she could get.

She grew bored however when her family insisted she stayed away from combat related positions and become a science professor like her adopted father and follow his foot-steps. She was very skilled and enjoyed fighting, she was not content to become a professor and refused, having no interest in science or technology.

One day, she also discovered too much about her own heritage when she visited the orphanage she was adopted from. She learned they found her near a "gate". A place said to be an entrance into "the Underworld". From that day forward, she wanted to discover her heritage, who her real parents were and if she truly came from such a place.

She decided to leave home and try to find out more about the gate. She could not find a way to get it to work however. She was rather upset when she discovered research about the gates could not go forward due to lack of funding. Because of this, she decided to be a vigilante and capture wanted criminals, hoping to earn enough money to fund the research and open the gate. Her family wouldn't help her as they insisted it didn't matter.

She was met great success but she needed more money. She ran into Monsoon and decided to join forces and work together and start a small mercenary company known as "Flint Griffith Hunters". Despite this idea, the Flint family still speaks with Ramia and still cares for her, although they do not approve of her career choice.

As soon as Shintaion was attacked however, she had to change her goals. She decided to forget about the gates and focus on the impending war. After all, if the dark beasts had their way, there would be no one left to do any research on the gate.
Name: Shi

Age: 20

Specie: Demon

Element/Specialty: Beginning: Does well with a modified EBR M21 that holds and fires plasma based rounds.

Later: Orb Based Transformation


Equipment: Modified EBR M21, modified clip size of 20 rounds. Cool down needed after 5 consecutive shots. Cool down takes at least two minutes.

X38 portable all purpose information storage and retrieval device, X38 for short. The device is fitted to his wrist and used to be connected to the Nostrian main computer in Shintaion.

Orb…a spherical object that seems to hold more questions than answers. So far Shi knows that this orb is related to him somehow and has the ability to transform him like a normal demon. The voice of the orb has told him he is the last of the noble lineage of the vampires.

Personality: Shi is a kind hearted man and has a great sense of justice. He believes in his friends and lives to see bright days ahead. With dark clouds looming overhead he will find a way to strive for the light just beyond the clouds reach.

History: Shi was supposedly called an orphan. That all changed when the civil dispute caused a huge disturbance around Shintaion. He quickly found himself wrapped up in a matter that concerned all the gangs and the government of Nostria.

Over the time he was running from the clutches of the military and public servants he met several individuals who wanted to see the government cleansed of the wicked. One of these people was Edmund, a dark beast who also had an interesting past supposedly with the leaders of the dark beasts.

The conflict they engaged in was won after a talk with the rogue towns that disguised the gangs located there. The fight was intense with the towers being guarded by sentries and armours. Finally Shi made it to Killard's quarters and defeated him. The fight caused major disruptions in the temporal dampeners in the towers which in turn caused rips in time and space. The collapsing rifts caused large explosions and it was thought that Shi died in the final one that took out all seven Nostrian towers.

Instead Shi found himself catapulted through time five years and several hundred miles away from his original destination. He now looks to Abscus to find answers as to what has happened in his absence.
Let me know if anything needs to be changed!!

Name: Cyrus "Cumulus" Anti

Age: 22

Specie: Human

Element/Specialty: Excellent marksmanship Cloud .50 caliber

First attached image (also note there is extra armor on the right shoulder to compensate for kickback)

Equipment: Cloud .50 caliber, with a ten round magazine and a semi-automatic pistol. (The name Cloud comes from the fact that the gun has the potential to shoot massive holes through clouds) This is only because if one maxes the amount of power the Cloud can handle it can fire one bullet at an insane power level, but the cool down after wards is 8 minutes so is rarely used, unless there is an absolute shot or multiple targets close to one another.

Cyrus is generally laid back and likes to have good time, however when duty calls the job or mission comes before play. On occasion he is known to drop the seriousness and let out a joke or two, because it's just to good to pass up. He enjoys the casual chat and makes friends easily. Not to mention he loves getting on Estelle's nerves.

Ever since Cyrus first picked up a gun he was a natural crack shot. As soon as he became 18 he joined the military and because of his expert shooting skills became a sniper, slowly after much training he received the fable Cloud .50 Caliber sniper rifle. After he reached Cloud status he was giving a unique nickname Cumulus as do all people who reach the highest level sniper rifle. Once this status is reached all users are assigned to an elite three man team, Cyrus was assigned to team Black Crow which consisted of Armour user Estelle and up close and personal Jericho.

It was not long after that the dark beasts attacked and took over Shintaion in which their faction became broken as it was the government of Shintaion that Black Crow belonged to. Now the three work as mercenaries only taking jobs that they deem worthy and may help the cause against the dark beats.

Name: Estelle Fernone

Age: 20

Specie: Human

Element/Specialty: Armour user and adept hacker

Second attachment
Suit and armour fourth attachment

Equipment: Armour class: Gomorrah, in addition to standardized issue guns a medium sized knife is kept on the right leg, for last resort purposes.
This armour is built for speed which is why it only has the standard plasma guns and knife. The 6 plasma guns are located in the wrist (3 for each) and ammo is fed through the armours arms the ammo being located in the back of Gomorrah.

Estelle is just as any girl her age would be engaged in the thought of love and hoping to achieve it one day. She cares for others but mainly small children who were taken away from her parents as she was. She gets offended at any comments from Cyrus that tease her and well anything Cyrus does she thinks is stupid, only because she is secretly in love with Cyrus.

When Estelle was 5 she showed great potential in the art of armours, at least according to the scientists who found her. She had a unique brain chemistry that made her a perfect candidate. She was taken away from her parents without their knowing in the middle of the night, and has little recollection of her previous years.
Since her abduction the military has trained her in the proper use of armour and in her spare time became an adept hacker using her armour to break into government secret files, and when she was 19 discovered the file of Cyrus and instantly fell in love. It was thanks to her (or so she claims) that he wound up on Black Crow so she might have a chance with him.

Name: Jericho Emanon

Age: 35

Specie: Human

Element/Specialty: Deals not with guns or knives but massive blunt objects, and is extremely strong.

Third attached image (minus the cross stuff)

Equipment: Giant Nail or rather anything one can swing around

Jericho is the caretaker of the group and treats everyone as a little kid because he is so big and has a hearty laugh, it's just in his nature. He is very compassionate for those around him and in battle while do his best to treat the enemy as humanly as possible, making them immobilized or finished quickly with a skewer.

Jericho was a humble military man who after had reached the age of 30 retired fro mthe military swearing to never use a gun again has he considered them vile weapons. It was not long after he had retired that the dark beasts had broken out, and he was called back to active service. However, he hold to his oath and instead took a giant nail from a monument that has been destroyed by the dark beasts and used it as his weapon.
At the beginning of the battles with the dark beasts Estelle was assigned to skirmishes with Jericho as she needed combat experience and Jericho was more then happy to take her under his wing. Slowly but surely they worked on getting Estelle used to the tragedy of war, practicing when and when not to have emotions.
Through the battles of Shintaion against the dark beasts he ran across Cyrus and duly noted his skill and recommending him to join Black Crow to the government, in which they accepted Jericho's request.
Oh and just in case it wasn't already stated, you don't need knowledge of the previous ICSYLs to join this, this is like set way into the future and the world has changed FYI.
Good news, for one, your both accepted (like that wasn't foreseen). And second, I think I've generated a little interest.

As for the IC I'm thinking of putting it up sometime this weekend, as we know weekends are slower and all the Character Sheet's that need to get in are in by that time. Glad to see this finally get running.
I still haven't finished reading the first two ICSYLs, and although you say no prior knowledge is needed, I don't quite understand what this one is about. Or at least it's not immediately clear to me. From what I* understood, this is about a resistance group (hence the name) fighting against a corrupt gov't? Or are they fighting a deadly force (the Dark Beasts)? Or both?

I only ask because I'm interested.

EDIT: Ok, I think I answered my own question. This is about a resistance force coming together to combat the Dark Beasts right?

Another question though, Nanites, What are the general rules for this "power"? Are Technomancers a strict class of their own? Or can anyone undergo the procedure? Also, the elemental power that they give their hosts, is it a specific elemental power (ie, Earth, water, wind, etc.) or is it elemental power in general, allowing manipulation of several elements?
(Correct me if I am wrong Piro) But Viral the main characters aren't fighting against the dark beasts who have taken over Shintaion. The government beforehand was some backstory onto why.

As for the Technomancers and nanites the Technomancers may only be human, and as far as I know any human can undergo the procedure. As for the limits in elemental control. More then likely to keep everyone in the same power levels, you will only have access to one element, and the nanites are not infinite so after so many uses you wil "run out". So the more powerful the move the more nanites one uses.
Tux, do you mean the main character's ARE fighting against the Dark Beasts that have taken over Shintaion? If not, Please clarify your post.

Sorry, for some reason I'm having a hard time understanding everyone's posts today...

And that's what I assumed (about the nanites), but just wanted to confirm. So it's more like a continuous treatment then. Occasionally replenishing your resources. Not self-replicating?
Viral you are correct the main characters are fighting against the dark beasts that have taken over Shintaion. It's all good mate.
The nanites are self-replicating just not as quickly as one might think (otherwise a character could be overpowered.)
Well, now your contradicting yourself. First you said it runs out, now your saying they reproduce. I assumed they wouldn't provide infinite power and would have certain limitations. But I need to know if they reproduce or require constant replenishment (ie, injections). I don't require ridiculous abundance of elemental attacks that would deplete my reserves. I'm asking because I'm considering a more defensive strategy. A defensive mechanism, could operate at low levels allowing for moderate consumption proportionate to reproduction. This, in turn, could allow for prolonged usage in situations of normal stress levels.

I hope I explained that last bit clearly. What is wrong with me this morning? Haha.
Viral - Presumably, the nanites are self-replicating but have a fixed maximum population, thus preventing a runaway replication sequence.

Also, the players are a Partisan and/or civilian Resistance force in occupied Shintaion. Therefore, yes, we will be set against the beasts.
That would be ideal Ric.
Thank you for the clarification.
Thanks to Tux as well.

Another question. The Dark Beasts, now are they all somewhat similar in appearance? A uniform biology? Obvious question but, what I mean is, are there classes within this species? Like smaller, faster infantry? Bigger stronger "tanks", etc., etc.?

EDIT/SUGGESTION: Piro, could you maybe clarify the Dark Beasts a bit? Maybe add a description like you did for the other species?
Alright time for Pirogeth to get to clarification mode.

First of all the naites for Technomancers. They are self-replicating like Ric said. They also have a maximum population. When using elemental abilities some of these nanites will die and exit the bloodstream like a defeated disease would using the colon. However, you will never run completely out of nanites as there is always a single nanite left over as the control that will never be used but replicate none-the-less.

As for Dark Beasts, that falls in the category of Weavel but I'll try and answer it myself.

Dark Beasts were originally Forbidden Beasts, but through a war before ICSYL 1 they were cast away into the Underworld. The original Dark Beast ancestors were Ice & Shadow (Dark) Beasts. After years of suclusion their skin changed to a dark color thus giving them their current name. They work in shadow attacks and most of them are tanks. But based on previous experience they can be devious science type like dudes as well.

The common bond I have seen in these beasts over the time that I have messed with them is the fact that whatever they do is taken to the extreme or is horrendous to begin with. Like scientists for Dark Beasts would work in fields of experimenting on live subjects and fusing together elemental powers drastically deforming them and causing them to almost lose their sanity. In the end if they get out of control they would put them down like some kind of pet.

Their civilization is modern but also savage. They fight for power rather than debate and blood is currency. If you do not have what it takes to survive then you aren't welcome in the world.

Hope that explains a bit more about Dark Beasts, their behaviour, and what the common thread exists between them.
Hmm looks like Piro beat me to it. :P

But I can say this much more about dark beasts, for the most part they're like brutally strong physical attackers. Some might specialize in energy attacks instead of brute force.

They also are inherently good at tanking some attacks, ice and fire are highly ineffective aganist them. I forgot to mention that.

So primarily, they're either tanks or faster special attackers or somewhere in between. That's the easiest way to put it.

The ice beasts serve as healers and medics to the dark beasts since for the most part, they can't heal.

If there's anymore questions though I can answer em.
Before I go and put up the IC I want to be sure we have at least 5 members with character sheets. Once I see sheets the I'll work on making an introduction that will work for all of us. I'm off to visitor message a few people. Ric, I won't be messaging you cuz I know your working on it.
Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for Calvin Bierce!

Name: Calvin Bierce

Age: 32

Specie: Human

Specialty: Cal is a mechanical genius. Or perhaps a mechanical idiot-savant. In any case, if you want something kitbashed, jerry rigged, field repaired, or salvaged, Cal is definitely the best man for the job. He's also a decent Armour pilot and a fair shot.

Cal wears denim and shitkickers.

"Jenna", a scoped Verscetti Arms PKR40 .388Cal hunting rifle.

Momma Rose, a salvage-built Armour unit. Momma Rose is armed with a 5.9cm rotary plasma cannon and a 3.5cm caseless autocannon, both arm-mounted. Built from components of scrapped, wrecked, and discarded Armours, Momma Rose should not, by all rights, function. She somehow does, however, actually exceeding the design specifications of most of her components. Rather than the enclosed "Cockpit" that most pilots prefer, Cal operates Momma Rose using waldoes from a harness affixed to a dune-buggy style roll cage. Both guns are fired with grip triggers (salvaged motorcycle handles) and by swinging the grip triggers down and forward, the guns slide back to allow Cal to use Momma Rose's claw actuators.

{For anyone having trouble envisioning Momma Rose, start with the walkers from The Matrix and work from there}

Personality: Come on, say it with me now - "Redneck." Gloriously unsophisticated, Cal is the sort to lounge in his Armour's "cockpit" and plink away at whistlepigs for shits and grins.

History: Before the Dark Beast invasion, Cal ran a junkyard. When questioned beyond that, he shrugs and says there "ain't much to tell."
Name: Rufus Alexander Belmont or Lex for short

Age: 24

Species: Human

Element/Specialty: Lex's signature characteristic is the use of earth based nanites to create an invisible shield. This defense mechanism works by converting Lex's body into a magnet for fine dirt particles that creates a thin, dense layer of armour coating. As a result, he is able to take and deliver harder blows. This method also operates at a low level of nanite consumption, proportional to nanite reproduction, which allows for prolonged and often continuous usage. He also relies on a working knowledge of guerrilla warfare.

Appearance: At six feet tall and about 200lbs, Lex is in great shape, lean and muscular. Lex has Short dark hair that sticks up in the front, emerald green eyes, and golden, sun blasted skin. He has a tattoo on the inside of his right forearm of an Ouroborus embracing the earth, as well a giant tree covering his back. Lex's regular attire consists of black cargo pants and boots, a white t-shirt with red text that reads "REBEL", sunglasses, a scarf, and cowboy hat. He wears his pistol and dagger in a shoulder holster and his rifle is slung over his shoulder. He also carries a rolled up jacket attached to the back of his belt.

Equipment: Standard issue plasma pistol, plasma assault rifle, stainless steel combat/utility knife, pocket plasma flashlight.

Personality: Lex is intelligent, graceful and materialistic. Lex's materialism manifests in a love of shiny things. When it comes to decision-making, Lex is extremely analytical and as a result, won't jump into situations. Lex is very creative and extremely diligent, which makes him effective at getting what he wants, even if it means having to scheme and plot along the way. Lex is easily stressed and easily bored. Lex prefers a life of quiet calmness and a manageable workload. His somewhat laid-back attitude causes him to be mistakenly categorized as a slacker. He's an excellent problem-solver and thrives under a tight deadline. Lex is an excellent seducer and never has trouble attracting others. However, he'll be the one to decide when a friendship has potential and when it does not. Lex is extremely loyal and protective of those he deems worthy. His trust is not to be taken lightly. Lex always seems to be calm and content. He's friendly and approachable and believes in Hard work and relies on common sense. Lex prefers to keep his feelings to himself.

History: Before the Dark Beasts declared war, Lex was a member of law enforcement. Lex survived the attack on Shintaion and has been fighting ever since. He was alone for a long time, relying on instinct and guerrilla tactics. He soon encountered another survivor in a ruined city. They were tacked down in a blown out building. Covering each other, they made it out and stuck by each other in every battle since. Lex's new partner's name was Galka, he was an earth beast of the forbidden tribe.


Name: Galka

Age: 25

Species: Earth Beast

Element/Specialty: Galka's signature characteristic is his control over the earth element. His specialties include the ability to take tremendous damage and deal it back, as well as his proficient skills with a plasma assault rifle.

Appearance: At eight foot tall and about 400lbs, Galka is a behemoth. His greyish skin is extremely tough and covered with thick brown hair in some places. His eyes are black and his teeth sharp. Galka wears a long sleeve shirt and pants beneath thick leather armour with boots and gloves. He carries a machete-like blade, made from a helicopter propeller, slung across his back and mortar-like weapon that releases high energy plasma blasts.

Equipment: Plasma blast cannon, giant machete

Personality: A quiet and gentle giant. Like most of the forbidden tribe, Galka is very respectful of nature and meditates every day. He says it keeps him in tune with the earth. On the battle field, Galka is a fierce fighter and can sometimes lose his head and go berserk. Though, for the most part, he will hold concentration and can often be heard reciting a line of respect before taking an opponents life, "become one with me." Finally, Galka is very protective of Lex and often acts as his body guard.

History: A labor worker before the attacks, Galka acted quickly and survived by brute strength. He's come close to death many times due to his head strong attitude. Lex's skill set was complimentary to Galka's and brought a more balanced way of fighting. A perfect team of brains and brawn.
Galka is more of a tool than a secondary character, hence the shallow profile.

Well, I hope this is all ok, let me know if I need to change anything.
This is the first RP I've tried to join on here. Please tell me if I need to edit anything!

Name: Rae "Zippy" Farfor

Age: 22

Specie: Thunder Beast

Element/Specialty: Rae specializes in using electricity and turning her brass knuckles into lightning. This allows her to fight close up by allowing her to inflict more damage than normal. However, if she converts the brass knuckles into pure lightning it drains her energy and makes her have to move slower to conserve energy.

Appearance: Rae's features are mostly humanoid, with some exceptions that stand out. Rae's face seems like a totally normal human oval shape until one notices the ears which are shaped like a cat's. Her skin is a regular peach color, and her long hair (which is often kept back in a ponytail on the job) is a normal looking light blonde color, with a side-sweeping bang covering her right eye. Her eyes are a light aquamarine color, with a golden ring that lines the pupil, which gets larger as the pupil contracts. Another feature that is hardly noticeable until she opens her mouth are the sharp canines and incisors that she has.

Rae stands at five and a half feet, and has a slender, but lean build. Her legs are longer than her torso, and her arms are a bit short, but both are toned and lacking of fat. Rae's hands are humanoid, with opposable thumbs, but she has black claws instead of nails which are sharp at the points. Rae generally wears light clothing for the sake of speed, although off the job she will most likely be found in casual clothing unless she is at some special event. She tends to carry her daggers in holsters found strapped to various parts of her body where she can easily withdraw them, but will sometimes put them in less obvious locations when needed.

Equipment: Brass knuckles, and throwing daggers.

Personality: Rae is someone that appears to others to be a party-girl. She gets excited easily, and definately isn't afraid to party or do crazy things, but she is a lot smarter than that. Behind this partying front, she has a calculated, intelligent mind. She is, like a wolf, a cold blooded killer when it comes to her job as an assassin. She won't shirk her work, and will get it done in as efficient a way as she possibly can. Nobody truly sees her intellect until they see her working, and people often find it surprising that she works as an assassin, which she often works to her advantage.

History: Rae was born in a city in Shintaion. Rae's parents were both trained to kill, and taught Rae how to use her powers effectively. Rae's parents also taught her the importance of a facade, or outer-self so that others could not detect her true intentions if she needed to kill. While Rae was not being trained, she would often find herself caring for her other siblings while her parents were since she was the oldest. She would have to hide them from the violence of the streets. Rae's parents continued fighting as Rae and her two siblings, Sylvia and Ciros grew up. While she was with her siblings, they would often call her Zippy because she was faster than her siblings. After so long, she went by Zippy more often than she did by Rae.

Eventually seeing Shintaion as a place she could no longer live in, with her father and her mother's consent, she left Shintaion for Abscus where she started working privately as an assassin for an agency. Eventually, she left the agency and started her own private service which went by the name "Zippy's Hunting Agency". She had trouble finding work, but is now recently finding a new flood of jobs for her to complete. Meanwhile, while not on the job she would find herself in clubs and other party-spots often on her off-time. This later made her associated with clubs and parties and made her outer-self seem a lot more like a partier than an assassin.<!-- / message -->
