    Planet, Oshia. The planet is a massive ocean, with very little land space. The most common form of life is, aside from humans, jellyfish.

    Human kind has been relocated, due to the pollution of Earths atmosphere, and they live under the water, in large domes. The technology is advanced, with rebreathers, high-pressure submarines, advances in medical technology, ect, ect. The domes themselves are clean, white, pristine. The ocean is already being polluted however. A species of deep-dwelling creatures with coherent cognitive abilities are aware of the human race. This knowledge is one-sided. These people are a peaceful race however, and their last desire is to exterminate the humans. So, they need ambassadors.

    Deep-Dwelers (open)
    [​IMG]

    These specific ambassadors, known as Arbitrators, are the human dead being recycled. The consciousness of a select few deep-dwellers have been transferred to these deceased, and the bodies have been revived. Their mission is to 'discover' the human world, and to decide if termination is necessary for the survival of their planet.

    Arbitrators, with human bodies and Dwellers minds, also have the ability to change, or to summon a separate consciousness with the ability to violently defend the procured bodies. These changes will include mental, but also physical changes. However, they are not allowed to meddle in the affairs of humans, at all. The rules dictate that their existence be kept a secret for as long as possible, meaning that there will be no direct stopping of the accumulation of human waste/pollution.

    Arbitrators (open)

    The Deep-Dwellers obtained the bodies used for the Arbitrators by taking bodies that have been discarded. Due to the lack of soil, humans have been sending their beloved dead to the bottom of the ocean for many, many years. Through scientific technology that the DDs have had for a long time, they are able to regenerate decaying flesh and the likes. However, these people not only do not have the ability to bring the humans consciousness back to their body, but it interferes with their beliefs system. Thus, a specifically chosen DD will have their own consciousness transferred to the empty body of the revived human, thus becoming an Arbitrator, an observer.


    Waste Management (open)

    Contrary to popular belief, the company in charge of Oshia's waste management is not actually out to pollute the world. The trash is being sent to the bottom of the ocean under the belief that the intense pressure will annihilate any harmful properties. If such a belief is wrong, however, at least no one will ever be able to prove it so.


    Branches of Science (open)

    Due to the advancements in technology, and yet not in morality, the top three medical branches have come up with a few new species, with healing and medicinal properties. The general public is unaware of these breakthroughs, and thus, there is very little to be said about them.

    @MasterRavager

    @MasterRavager, you can be in charge of this~<3 There should also be some heavy reliance on jellyfish, so you may want to ask @Skyeraptor for some help. I bet she'd like that.

    Dr. carol Nanzen (open)

    Name: Dr. Carol Nanzen

    Human

    Age:
    28
    Appearance: Slender, 6'1 with black hair, blue eyes, pale skin.

    Bio: She works for the environmental branch, not at the top but on the way up. She is interesting in the exploration of Oshia and the other species that are present on the planet and the possibility of re-inhabiting Earth. She is also very inquisitive sometimes to inquisitive and smart, but lacks common sense.

    Araya (open)

    Name: Araya, of the Nektobenthos clan

    Arbitrator

    Age:
    N/A
    Appearance: thin, 5'6, blond, Green eyes, extremely pale skin

    Bio: Araya is a rebellious young dweller. She would not have been chosen to be a Arbitrator expect for her abilities. Before she was chosen she befriend a great many octopi and on a hunch that she would keep some of their abilities such as their advanced intelligence she was chosen. The most important ability was keep from a mimic octopus. Araya can mimic others with extreme accuracy and also has some camouflage abilities. These skills can only be used when threatened. She was sent to infiltrate the Environmental branch.


    Silas (open)

    Name: Silas

    Arbitrator

    Age
    : 143 years

    Human age: 32 years

    Appearance: Silas' human body was on the verge of being rendered beyond repair, but the Dweller took a liking to the particular vessel. Silas has a clean-shaved head, with several scar-shaped bald spots where the damage was unable to have been completely covered up, especially on the right side of his scalp. The eyes are a deep, dark grey, the irises being almost black. He has a firm, square jaw and high cheekbones, with a scar that runs horizontally over the bridge of his nose, and another that goes from his right ear to his chin, intersecting with the right corner of his mouth. He's missing three molars on his bottom right jaw, two on the upper jaw. The shape the body is in is actually rather toned, with thick arms and fit pectoral and abdomen muscles. Standing straight, he stands at roughly 6'3", or 190.5 cm.

    Bio: Not being the youngest Dweller to have been chosen for the Arbitrator project, Silas was chosen largely for his cool head, and wizened tactics. He makes for a kind, yet stoic character. Before having been chosen for the project, Silas was on the council that created the Arbitrators. He is a strong believer in peace, and would like to see nothing more than the two races living in cooperation.


    Ryan Tinilis (open)

    Arbitrator/Human: Human

    Age: 35

    Human name: (If applicable) Ryan Tinilis (tee-nial-iss)

    Appearance: Has short brown hair, often hid under a surgical cap. Has dark brown eyes, making it difficult to tell where the pupils are. Has several silver teeth in his lower jaw, three molars towards the back (two on the left, one on the right). Stands at around six feet even, and has a decent build despite his job. His skin is pale because of being indoors most of his life, and wears his white coat over his casual clothing almost all the time unless he is at home, eating, or working out. Even though there is no terrain, he wears sturdy hiking boots, mostly in self defense if it is needed, and to make him slightly taller.

    Bio: He is well known for his attitude, self absorbent and arrogant at times. His life practically revolves around his work as he is extremely devoted to it, and his hard work has earned him a high ranking in the medicine/medical field. He is allowed to work on his own projects in his own personal lab due to his ranking, and is able to enter other high ranking labs with his credentials. He is hard to distract if he is working, and will praise his work when he is working alone. Sometimes he will speak with his fellow scientists, but usually for help/opinions on certain projects they need to work on. Females will catch his eye at times, but not frequently. Most of his work is to help humans in water-based planets survive, such as creating devices to recycle air, or finding biological ways to keep humans from being sick from lack of sunlight or help them last longer should they find themselves drowning.


    Alex Ymir (open)

    Arbitrator/Human: Human/Nonhuman

    Age: 23

    Human name: (If applicable) Alex Ymir (Nicknamed Onyx)

    Appearance: Has medium-long pitch black hair as it isn't often trimmed by those who work on him, but he doesn't seem to mind it. His stance is also tall, around average human height (around 5'5"), so in essence is shorter than Ryan. He has a somewhat skinny frame, but that is usually only apparent when near those with better toned bodies. He is extremely pale, some of his veins able to be seen if one were to focus on him long enough. His eyes are a vibrant grass green color, and he wears a collar around his neck (which appears as a thick necklace) to keep him from wandering far from the research laboratories and to always keep track of his location. He doesn't appear starving, and has some build to him, but isn't offered enough time to work on his own structure, so remains 'skinny'. He wears concealing white clothing all the time, concealing a reddened area in the middle of his back where any injections or samples are injected/ removed (the area is covered with a thick patch of bandages and gauze).

    Bio: Everyone from the research branches know him as a man who volunteered for mild testing to help boost the time and effort into saving and improving human lives in the underwater environment. However, he did not volunteer, and was instead from a space station and treated with amnesia, so he doesn't remember being taken. Since he isn't allowed in most recreational locations (such as the gym, cafeteria, ect) he will often roam the halls of the research facilities, sometimes transferring between branches in case testing needs to be done for environmental reasons as well (such as, whether a certain substance will remove toxic substances from the skin if spilled). Sometimes he will interact with other scientists should they have the time to spare, and move on once they are done. He will always answer when addressed, and should he need to return to his home lab he will start rubbing his neck as if a rash was there before heading back. Many times he is tested for tolerance to lack of oxygen, being mostly submerged in water for periods of time to actually testing how long he could hold his breath, swim, ect. He will not often travel to the other branches, and only does when given the privilege. His lead scientist is Ryan, so sometimes he will be seen following him like a dog to a person, though probably not as excited. He knows to keep out of things, and waits patiently even when hungry as he knows the consequences for misbehaving.

  7. Kind of :/
    But I have time this evening. Should come up with a little char ^^
     
  8. Human/Non-human

    Name:
    "Atlas"

    Age: 3 human years

    Appearance: "Atlas" is a leading model in cybernetic implants and genetic manipulation. Although being only three years of age, Atlas has a life expectancy of 10-12 years, and stopped growing at around a year and a half. When standing at his full height, the top of his head reaches 6'2", or nearly 188cm, though a large portion of his height is due to the shape of his legs, which are very similar to that of the bone structure of a horse's hind legs.
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]

    To help with balance, he has a long tail that reaches almost a foot and a half past his legs. When standing still for a longer period of time, his tail is used almost like a third leg to help him stay upright. As far as Atlas' facial features, he has a young, almost childlike face to reflect how old he really is. His eyes have nearly no irises, as his pupils are permanently dilated beyond that of any normal human, giving him the ability to see in extremely dark situations, although normal amounts of light render him as good as blind.
    Atlas also has a number of cybernetic implants, the most noticeable of these being one that covers his ear canals and stretches around the back of his head.
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]
    Altas' brain is made up almost entirely of cybernetic technology, such as the structure of the brain, and a large portion of the connections and pathways therein. An accesses port exists at the base of his skull, were one can literally connect to and download information such as visual and audio recordings, and through special programs can view Atlas' recent vital signs, and can even communicate with him. The most prominent downside to these particular implants, is that Atlas has been diagnosed with a condition comparable to epilepsy.
    Atlas has a pale, almost white-blue shade of skin, almost like that of a shaved mammal, but he has no hair or fur. Wether or not this trait is genetic has yet to be seen. Originally, Atlas had a strange self-defense mechanism, where clear tendrils could grow from either side of the back of his jaw, and protrude from his mouth. These could emit toxins that, defendant on intensity, could either paralyze or poison victims/prey. An incident with this only happened once, where a scientist was temporarily paralyzed. The tendrils were surgically removed, but the toxin-producing glands were left behind, allowing further testing, but not providing Atlas with a means of delivery.

    Bio: Atlas is a resident test-tube-baby, made from the different genetics of both species originating from Earth, and Oshia. (More on this later. It's time for a break :L )
     
  9. Yay !!!!!! :-)
     
  10. I think you need to put a link to the RP thread, just in case.
     
  11. I posted, someone else is up.
     
  12. @Skyeraptor @MasterRavager

    Hey, guys, I really hate to do this to you, but I think what I've BEEN doing hasn't been fair to you either. I'm going to be killing this RP. I know, it's totally my fault, and I feel horrible about it.

    I've hit a funk, and a ton of my RPs just aren't fun anymore, and it can't be fun for you guys having to wait up for me. If the two of you REALLY like this RP, someone can take over Silas, and I'll give you guys my ideas for how I wanted the story to go. Unfortunately, Atlas would have to be scratched out, and I know Rave hates it when things like that happen. But, it's up to you two. Let me know, ok?
