BY INVITATION ONLY Star Wars: Rise Of The Consortium(OOC)

Discussion in 'GROUP RP PLOT INFO & SIGNUPS' started by Cush Almighty, Oct 14, 2016.

  1. 1000 years after the Force Awakens

    The Republic has been in decline for the last 100 years thanks to over expansion, Insurrection, Poor economy, Increase in crime and failing infrastructure across the board. This allowed for the birth of a new threat to the Republic, The Consortium. The Consortium came from the outer rim when groups of planets united their power and resources to form their own regime. They soon spread, Taking, even more, planets into the Consortium. The Consortium is backed by plenty of credits from people with stakes in The Consortium all the way down to the underworld.

    The Consortium has even played a part in the decline of the Republic by using their connections to fund rebellion and increase spice trading. The Consortium is big on business and tends to bring money to planets with plenty of corporations. It puts all able citizens to work in some form paying them low living wages until the war with the Republic ends. The Consortium drafts half of its citizens into the military and employs mercenaries to assist in the war effort. The Consortium also have their own force users just like the Republic who have the Jedi. The Knights of the Consortium and they practice in the dark side of the force, seeking power and control. They study Sith teaching but would not be considered true Sith.

    The Consortium is an Oligarchy controlled by dark side users, Businessmen, and politicians. They maintain a strict control over Consortium. They do not tolerate crime and punish with harsh sentences like death or slavery. The Consortium is sending out a small but powerful fleet to further advance their domination of the galaxy. This fleet will have soldiers, Mercenaries, and Knights aboard. The final days of the Republic are near.
    The Knight's Code

    "A Knight is sworn to the Greater Good,

    To learn the way of the force, and master life.

    A Knight's mind seeks only truth.

    A Knight's blade seeks to undo the wicked.

    Their might upholds the law of the universe.

    Their image strikes fear into the hearts of their enemies.

    They choose self-esteem over self pity,
    They choose the knowledge of the force,
    They choose the perfection of the body,
    They choose the singularity of the mind."

    Character Sheet

    Star Wars
    Character Sheet

    Physical Description: [leave a description here with an image in spoiler tags if you have one. Realistic only. No anime.]

    Name: [The name of your character]

    Age: [18+ only.]

    Occupation: [How they are involved with the group- Knight, Soldier, Intelligence, Mercenary, Emissary]

    Species: [What species your character is]

    Personality: [Brief personality description. How they normally act, if they crack under pressure, what drives them, what scares them... etc]

    History: [No need to go too deep here, especially if you're writing up a Knight. Those stories should all be quite similar- and you will know one another. Grew up in an academy being taught basic skills and knowledge, as well as force and combat. Quite paramilitary. You probably haven't gone on any in depth missions yet. If you're anything else, its pretty open.... ask if you have questions!]

    Equipment: [List of equipment here and where/how you carry it. Lightsabers for Knights only]

    Skill/Abilities: [What your character is good at, based upon their previous experiences. Combat skills will likely be a given. Go a little more in depth here. :) ]

    Force Powers [Knights Only]: (know that all acolytes are taught telekinetic and meditative skills. They can all use these to some degree. However keep in mind that you are newly knighted. You will not be an advanced user. I'd say pick one or two force powers like heal, shield, enhance [strength], enhance [jump] , enhance [speed], Misdirect [creating small illusions], low level mind trick, force choke, concealment, telepathy, bind, sith alchemy, etc... I'd absolutely say lightning is an advanced skill. Set something understandable for someone of your characters experience level.

  2. Finished for the most part. Will add more as i see fit. May sketch up a basic image for him. Though this is the gist!​

    Dare Argonire (open)

    Star Wars
    Character Sheet

    Physical Description:
    Dare stands at 6' tall. He isn't unnecessarily muscular, but he is fit from actual work- though no needless bodybuilding. His skin is a very pale with gray-blue undertones [rather than human-like red/pink]. His eyes, beneath his strong brow are a dull blue-grey color. His nose is straight, and rounded. His hair is silvery- gray, medium length, and pushed back away from his face. He has average lips, and his head shape is ovular.

    He wears a black double breasted jacket. His hands are covered in black swordsman gloves. He wears charcoal pants, and black armored boots. He wears a black asymmetrical robe with an oversized hood on top of his everyday uniform. This is often belted over with a wide swordsman belt, attached to a normal utility belt around his waist.

    Name: Knight Cpt. Dare Argonire

    Age: 29

    Occupation: Consortium Knight-Captain

    Species: Arkanian Offshoot

    He is a stubborn and competitive individual. He is a practical person, and doesn't often get stuck in thought or daydream. He is a natural planner, however since plans never seem to go accordingly, has learned valuable improvisational skills. He is very self aware, and doesn't seem to have many insecurities- as he tends to be very assertive. After spending his life in the academy, he has become more of a team player, and has extroverted tendencies. Very honest and blunt- doesn't tell white lies. Has an appreciation for music and art. Enjoys cleaning and organizing the areas he has control over. He's mildly arrogant and self centered.

    Dare, like all Consortium Knights, was taken at a young age. He doesn't remember his life before the Consortium, nor does he really care. Starting at a young age, he took to the more physical aspects of their studies. His small class of initiates were all fairly equal overall, however most seemed to be able to specialize in something- as to garner attention and special training from their elder knights.Dare's specialty was martial arts training. All the students excelled in swordsmanship in some way or another, but Dare shined even without his blade.

    Though combat was certainly not the only thing they learned, however it was a large focus on physical fitness and combat readiness. They also learned basic and advanced galactic history-- not holding out on things like religion and politics. They really took courses and got a good education through the Consortium's system. Something that would rival that of the better tier of Republic academies. They then spent several hours in meditative or spiritual/force training and alternated physical training and education.

    This was up until they were age 18, and they 'graduated' as a class with a full on mission for the Consortium. If they failed, they were either cast out of the program and sent into another branch of the Consortium, likely memory wiped- and sent to the physical labor camps. No one really knew. Thankfully, this was not the norm, as the class sizes were generally small, so the initiates got plenty of training and molded properly. If they succeeded, they were subsequently knighted, and given more responsibility within the Consortium.

    Obviously Dare graduated, as he stands as a Knight Captain within the Consortium. He started off as a dark sentinel, running errands for the Grand Master- seeking ancient jedi and sith artifacts, and searching for rogue jedi agents [capturing and or executing them]. Since the Knight's don't necessarily take specialization- and are qualified for most things, he goes where the Consortium needs him. Currently, about 95% of the Knights are at the Knight's Academy. Dare is currently a teacher and mentor.

    Has a utility belt that has small pouches and compartments built into it.
    *Has a long range communicator [utility belt].
    *Basic scanning and magnifying monocle [utility belt]
    *small ration tubes [utility belt]
    *Chemlights [utility belt]
    *personal shield generator [utility belt]
    *folding/collapsible datapad [utility belt]
    Wears his lightsaber on his wide swordsman belt on his right hip. This has a golden blade.

    Skill/Abilities: Linguistics- he knows several trade languages- though may not be able to speak them- he certainly understands many of them,
    Leadership- he has proven himself a valuable member of the Consortium, and dictates and behaves well under pressure. Currently leads a team of newly initiated Knights.
    Negotiation- he doesn't normally use persuasion- however he speaks practically and with fact. He is also skilled with dealing with many different types of personalities. He is decent with words, and doesn't have a hard time getting his ideas across
    Musically talented- he doesn't have any formal training, but enjoys music, and can play some of the more basic rhythm instruments.
    Self Defense and Martial Arts- excells in martial arts
    Lightsaber combat- highly trained and practiced lightaber combatant.

    Force Powers [Knights Only]:
    Force Meditate
    Force Push/Pull
    Enhance: Force Jump, Force Speed

  3. At my therapy. But will have my sheet up shortly after I get home. Also added this to my watch thread. Can't wait to show Corbin.
  4. I'm working on my character in my test chambers, so she will be here when I'm done there.

  5. He appeared like death, cloaked in black, and wearing a hood to conceal his face in the dark. Desperately trying to struggle a find a way to escape his clutches, it was hard to believe the 5’9” man was actually one of the good guys. He was like a phantom, with moonlight pale skin, and hollowed out eyes. The mask that covered his jaw did not help the imagery either. He probably would have been criticized for his attire, yet he clung desperately onto some form of personal identity and expression.

    The death like man was decked in assortment of gear, strange to some. A communication device was hooked to his hood, that also revealed an orange, holographic visor whenever he called upon it to shield his hollow eyes. And a holographic interface hooked to his wrist to call upon any technical assistance needed. He seemed far more equipped than most. But didn’t look like much of a warrior. Not with his gear.

    Name: Corbin Abelas

    Age: 28

    Species: Nagai

    Occupation: Knight

    Maybe it was always in their blood, maybe it wasn’t just the culture, but the people themselves. Taken at a young age to the Consortium you’d think some of that fierceness and tenacity would have been curbed. Except that there is something expressive about Corbin. Independent and thoughtful. You often find him saying things like, it’s easy to be an asshole to everyone, it’s harder to be respectful to people. While honor bound to his oath.

    And sworn to his duty. Corbin is also kind of his own personal techie. Finding himself talking to a lot of the engineers and tech crew running around. He finds he has a lot of things in common with them. Corbin holds tightly onto his personal identity and merely scoffs at the notion that anyone would consider him to change sides. He is the type to make promises and keep them.

    He can often come off too sarcastic about certain issues or subjects, and sometimes can be quick to brush away other issues. But he’s smart, always been the type to see the opportunity in every circumstance. Has an excellent eye and sees the world in a completely different than most.


    "There's nothing more fun than a force user who looks like a freshly dug corpse"

    "You find that fun?" Falcon asked, he was sitting behind his desk, filing some paperwork into the archives of his computer.

    "Funny at least"

    "You're not worried that someone might think you'd turn to the dark side?"

    "Why would they think that?"

    "I don't something about looking like a freshly dug corpse"


    "You seem sure in that statement,"

    "Actions speak more than words. Light and dark is not a pair of shoes you can try on"

    "You think that's all that separates them?"

    "Actions or shoes?"

    "Fuck you,"


    A Communicator Earpiece, seen in the picture. He can press the button and an orange holographic visor can be seen. The visor allows him to scan the area and map out his current area, and location of enemies.

    A wrist device that brings up a holographic computer, which he uses for hacking purposes or getting around security, or even simply uploading and mapping out areas in further detail

    His lightsaber

    Being the curious sort, he also has a Tehk'la Blade, after some curious research of his home planet


    Unusually light on his feet, they say Corbin's got a cat grace because he moves as if he is not limited. He is able to quickly assess his environment and figure out which is the easiest and best course of action to take

    Highly tuned assessment of environments. Corbin has a way of looking at the world, even without his visor, in a 3D space. He is able to assess where threats are in his environment and to pass through them. His mind is not limited by the narrow scope.

    He's tech and computer savvy; basics like hacking, security jamming, engineering his own gear when need be

    Natural navigator because of his highly attuned sense of direction, he is a natural navigator and never seems to get lost even when he's in a new environment. He picks up the layouts very quickly.

    He's a quick thinker, but a poor planner. Everything he does is instinctual rather than a thought, and he often follows his impulses.

    Good team player, he's naturally respectful and tries to keep everyone on even terms. Not a fan of drama or arguments, he often keeps a happy medium with people.

    Force Powers:

    Misdirect - small illusions

    Concealment- though he can only hold it for a few short minutes

    Character Sheet

    Physical Description:
    Nex stands at 5'11 and has an average build for a knight that is. He has reddish blonde hair cut clean and low. He has a long face shape, round chin and medium brown skin. His nose is wide and round while his lips are large which is typical of a Korun. Nex has what is considered a baby face looking younger that what his is added by the lack of facial hair. Covering his eyes and parts of his face is cybernetic that resemble glasses in a way.


    Nex wears a form-fitting black tunic with crimson red tabards held together with a sash abdstrings in the back. Also around his waist are black satchels. Lower down he's usually seen wearing black pants and reddish brown boots. Under his clothes, He has lightly armored himself so to slow him down as little as possible. His shoulder, Knees, Chest, and wrist are protected by said armor.

    Name: Nexus "Nex" Xeirsu

    Age: 25

    Occupation: Knight Captain

    Species: Korun (Cyborg)

    Nex is one of the most intelligent and cunning men in the Knight's Order. He is always thinking ahead and how things could possibly turn out and prepping for it. Others would call him paranoid but he would call it being prepared because you never know what could go wrong. He is able to remain cool and calm under pressure and knows to never let his emotions make him irrational. He trusts few people and those who have the audacity to betray his trust will face the consequences. Nex could be considered egotistical but he would define it as prideful for he has achieved much since being knighted. He doesn't like being insulted and will respond accordingly. He knows when to speak, When to listen and when to act. He is not above deceit if it is the best option at the time but isn't a blatant liar. He is loyal to the Order and the Consortium as both are deeply intertwined.

    Nexus was born with a brother named Uni into a family of Knights and was told they to would be one since he could remember. He life before being taken to the academy was one of study and little play. The two brother were being prepared for the academy to ensure their success. Once taken by the order he only had his brother and he was his only rival as none of the other students were worthy. It was always a competition between the two no matter the class, Galactic History, Training in applying theForce(Physical and Mental) and physical exercise and swordplay. Nex had always excelled in the ways of the force compared to his brother while his brother was the superior swordsman. When they had the time they would help each other improve their flaws so one wouldn't fall behind. The brothers only had each other, Them against the galaxy but as they grew older they as grew apart.

    Once the two reached 18 and graduated they went their separate ways as Knights. Nex decided to serve the Consortium and The Order by searching for Sith/Jedi Artifacts and bringing planets into The Consortium. He usually did this through favors and give assistance in war and missions for those planets. He has also forced others into joining the Consortium by making threats to leaders families and using mind tricks. Nex had also taken a great interest in technology and building it in school. Nex even took it upon himself to 'upgrade' himself by becoming a Cyborg which was frowned upon by most Knights. This bionic enhancement was done on his eye and allowed him access to Consortium databanks, Radio frequencies, Thermal vision, Night vision and zoom function. This 'upgrade came at a price and it would be for the best if he avoided EMP's.

    As time went on and Nex name spread across The Order as a Knight who got things done his brother was rarely heard off which was odd. Uni wasn't as strong in the force as Nex but he was the better swordsman, Better the most knights. He was able to mow through enemies and lead men under his command to victory but word of him had stopped reaching Nex. Nex tried to get in contact with Uni but never could until he found a Holoprojector in his room. It was from Uni and explained what he had been up to. Uni had been made an assassin and spy by The Order and had been doing missions for them out in Republic space. He then went on to tell Nex he had planned to defect to the Republic and he wants Nex to defect with him. The holoprojector of Uni gave directions to the rendezvous point and asked to keep this all a secret.

    Nex wasted no time getting their hoping to beat some sense into his brother. It was night by the time Nex reached the rendezvous point out in the wilderness. Nex then sat down and meditated until his brother's arrival. After an hour Nex heard rustling in the bushes and his brother Uni appeared. Nex didn't know what to do but speak to him on his defection.

    Nex kills Uni and now want vengeance on the mysterious Jedi Mufar.

    "Uni! It so good to see you breathing." He said standing up and giving his brother a hug. He then moved away and placed his hands on his shoulders. "Uni, Brother, I've come to talk you out of this insanity! Leaving The Order is insane, Think of your Honor, My Own, and our family's honor as well. You are a secret operative for the Consortium! That is an honor! Why throw all that away?" He asked staring straight into his brother's eyes.

    Uni frowned at his brother and moved Nex's hand off his shoulder and turned away from his gaze. "Brother, I have done many things since we last seen each other and I am not proud of it. I have come to see the Consortium is corrupted and The Order is just as wicked as anyone who uses the Darkside.

    Nex stared at Uni starting to realize what he had become. The way he spoke of The Order, The Consortium and the Darkside with disgust. "When you said defect to the republic you werent just running from this life...were you."

    Uni looked at Nex, The truth written on his face. "I am in the middle of becoming a Jedi. I met a woman on a mission...She is a master in the order. She sensed my wavering between the dark and light and has helped me down to the right path. I have come to say my goodbyes and maybe bring you in with me. She is wise, Her name is Mufar and she can help you as she had helped me. The Darkside is not the way, Resisting the force is not the way. The Jedi are the true force of good."

    Hearing these words come from Uni's mouth burnt Nex's eardrums. Hearing such things from his brother cause so many emotion to swell up in Nex. The most prominent was an intense rage, Anger from feeling betrayed by his brother. He was turning his back on The Order, Their way of life. Nex grabbed his lightsaber and gripped it hard. He ignited the orange blade and pointed it at his brother. "I shall not stand here and listen to this babble! This Mufar has poisoned your mind and has lead you astray! To save what is left of your honor I will strike you down here. Surrender or Ignite your blade and die here with honor brother." A tear rolled down Uni cheek as he grabbed his lightsaber and ignited it. The two brother clashed, One last battle between them. The battle was glorious and ended with Nex standing over his brother who was on his knees broken, Defeated and waiting for the final blow. "I swear Uni, Your poisoner shall pay for this, I swear." Uni only looked up at him and shook his head. Nex then swung down with his lightsaber and took Uni's head.

    Nex later buried his brother in an unmarked grave with his lightsaber. To this day Nex has told no one of this refusing to desecrate his brother's honor. Ever since that night, Nex has searched for the Jedi Mufar to take his revenge on her for tainting his brother.

    Lightsaber - Creates an Orange blade of energy that is capable of deflecting blaster fire and id able to cut almost anything in the galaxy.
    Lightsaber (open)


    Cybernetic Eyes - This enhancement allows him access to a multitude of applications. He can switch his vision to Night, Thermal and binocular vision. They are also connected to Consortium Databanks. This allows him to scan others who's information is open to him. This has turned Nex into 'part' computer on some level.

    Communicator - An earpiece that allows him to transmit and receive transmissions.

    Swordsmanship - He is skill with a lightsaber in attack and defense. He mostly prefers defense over attack with a lightsaber. He usually grips his lightsaber with 2 hands and keeps his feet firmly planted in battle. He waits for an opening before attacking with his weapon. This comes from his training as a Knight.

    Hacking - He is able to hack into computers manually and wireless if possible. He can't hack everything but low-level security is a breeze. When Nex is splicing into systems he is susceptible to hacking himself. He can even be infected with viruses himself.

    Silver Tongue - He speaks in a way that makes others trust him. He uses his wits and charms to cut deals or get himself out of sticky situations.

    Historical knowlege of Sitj/Jedi - Nex loves reading and has gain extensive knowledge of Sith and Jedi dataing far back the early days of the Jedai'a order.
