IC Thread ~ Coming soon!! "Breaking News! What appears to be angels have been spotted falling from the night sky!" The television chattered from the store windows attracting the attention of several passers. Minus one of course. A teenager in a black trench coat made his way down the street, ignoring the shocking story while everyone else whipped themselves into a frenzy. "Angels? On Earth?" He could hear the whispers. He kept walking through the throng of astonished people, keeping his red eyes trained on his destination. The church. "Believers, look up! Take courage, the angels are nearer than you think...." The priest cried out, arms up in the air with his face turned towards the sky. He was met with a dark chuckle. "That's not a good thing..." Everyone in the church turned around to see the dark figure of the boy leaning in the door way. "Did you ever have a second thought about what you were praying too..?" He asked, stepping into the isle and letting the door slam behind him. The church goers looked at him with wide eyes. "Blasphemer!" The priest cried, pointing at the teenager with an accusing finger. He just continued to laugh. "Me? Blasphemer?" He chuckled, raising an eyebrow above an eerily glowing red eyes. "Do you have any idea who your talking too, old man?" He asked, coming to a halt in the center of the church. Before the priest could utter another word against the boy, black, feathered wings sprouted from his back. To say that jaws dropped would be an understatement. "This.." He said, motioning to himself. His gothic attire complete with chains and spikes, the black trench coat and combat boots. "This is what walks among you. Did you ever think it's not a good thing that we're here? We're warriors of god and we're here for a reason. That doesn't mean you're necessarily gonna like that reason...." He laughed again before disappearing in a swirl of shadows. Once they snapped out of their shock, the church goers rushed off to find news reporters. It was true. The angels were here. The question now was why. ~~~~ "Whenever God needs to punish someone, he sends an example. But, whenever God needs a killing, he sends an angel. Imagine what a creature like that is like... A whole existence spent praising your god, but always having one wing dipped in blood. Would you ever really want to see an angel?" ~~~~ ~Character Sheets~ Name~ Age~ (How old they look.

Pretty cool sometimes, others you just wish they'd all shut up. ~~~~ ~Mine~ Name~ Damiel Damien Demented Age~ 21 Gender~ Male Race~ Archangel Personality~ Damiel Damien is very straight to the point. He is a smart ass who can be quite rude at times. Most people find it hard to believe that he's an angel because of the way he behaves and conducts himself. He enjoys a good fight or argument and is overly cocky and confident about his skills. He despises his angel name and instead gave himself a name more fitting for a demon than an angel. One of his favorite hobbies is scaring the crap out of humans by appearing in dark alley ways at night with his black wings fully outstretched. He is very protective of his little brother, often throwing huge tantrums that threaten the very existence of whatever town they happen to be in at that time if any harm comes to his brother in the slightest. Hell, heaven is even afraid of him sometimes when he's angry. It's the only time when he can use his full power. It's not that he can't use it. It's that he doesn't really know how to. Most of his powers, along with the knowledge on how to use them, is locked away in his mind. Back Story~ Not much is unknown about Damiel Damien. It is known that he is an arch angel. It is known that he is the brother of Uriel. It is also known that he doesn't much get along well with Dakota. That's about it other than he's a holy terror. Most of his past is sealed away somewhere in that perplexing mind of his for only certain people to know about or remember. I suppose, everything is uncovered with time though, no? Special Ability~ Shadows. Everything Damien does is more based in shadows and darkness than in purity. This is an oddity based solely around him. He is also one of the most powerful Archangels when made, often accidentally unraveling space and time itself around him. Only when he's mad though. He also has a soul familiar named Misty. She is a black cat with red eyes and no matter how many times she scratches him for it, he insists on calling her "Kitty". Angel Weapon~ Scythe. Name~ Dakota Rayne Age~ 19 Gender~ Female Race~ Nephilim Personality~ Can anyone say temper? If ever there was a temper to rival Damien's, it would be Dakota's. She understands the word 'patience' about as much as he does as well. She doesn't like to be wrong or lose. Losing is definitely something she hates. She absolutely can not stand to lose to anyone. Well, there are a couple of exceptions to that. Damien is definitely not one of them. She hates him with a passion. It was hate at first sight. No one really knows why either. They just kind of have it out for each other. Dakota is confident in her abilities and rightfully so. She has invested several years into perfecting the art of sword play. She often carries several swords on her being. One in particular is her favorite. We'll get to that later though. She is a very dedicated person, often pouring her all into anything she puts her mind to. Which is another thing. Once she sets her mind to something, there isn't a snowball's chance in hell of pulling her from that course of action. Back Story~ Everything started out normal for Dakota. She was a human, she lived a normal life. Well, until she found out that her father was one of the angels. Then things kind of hit the fan. That's all that's really known about her history. Special Ability~ Amazing at swordplay. Angel Weapon~ Flaming sword gifted to her by her father. Name~ Ambriel Age~ 20 Gender~ Female Race~ Angel Personality~ Ambriel is very.... well, clueless for lack of a better term. She doesn't know a lot about human culture and is constantly screwing it up or asking for help. It doesn't help matters that she's a complete and total clutz. Despite her shortcomings, she is very kind, gentle, and an all around sweet person. Back Story~ Ambriel is a rather young angel, being only around 100 years old, and has rarely been let out of Heaven, let alone another angels sight for very long. The falling is her first time being on her own, and she's not handling it very well. Special Ability~ Abilities of the mind, including telepathic with humans and telekinesis. Angel Weapon~ A small dagger with a pearl white handle. ~~~~ ~Rules~ #1. Obvious. No god-modding. Yes, there is a god in this RP, that doesn't mean you're him. #2. There is nothing higher than an Arch Angel. I repeat, there is a god, it isn't you. #3. This is set in MODERN TIME. Please do well to remember this in your bio. If I read something of biblical proportions set in god only know what time period, and your anything lower than an Arch Angel, prepare for my shit to flip. #4. You are not an Arch Angel. Period. There will be a list of Arch Angels in the sign-ups. If you want to be one of them, fine. If not, no Arch Angel for you. Simple. #5. Please note that in this RP you may be an angel, a half-angel (Nephilim), or a human. If I see a single fairy, elf, neko, demon, godling, etc.. Once again, my shit will flip. #6. Yes, there is hell. No, demons are not involved. No, you can not be Lucifer and get them involved. #7. Damn, shit, ass, etc... If you don't like it, don't continue because there is going to be much more of it in the future. Especially with Damien around. He doesn't understand the words "Disney Filter" and neither to I. #8. Respect the other people. If your character wants to bitch slap another character and cuss them out, go right ahead. If you want to bitch slap another person and cuss them out, take it out of the thread and preferably to a moderator. I'm not going to handle your petty arguments. At least not nicely. #9. Literacy. Learn the word. Love it. Because I do. I'm not going to go all grammar Nazi on you, just please... please... respect the English language... After all. Good grammar is the difference between helping you Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse. I will behave. Until i 2ee 2hiit liike thii2. OR SHIT LIKE THIS. I do not want to feel like I am being screamed at through text. I, however, will not murder you for one or two misspellings. Everyone makes mistakes. I understand this. Just, like I said. Please don't abuse the English language. It is a beautiful thing. #10. One liners are the enemy. Can we have at least a paragraph? Is that too much to ask? If I see a single sentence post, I will go beyond flipping my shit. I understand writer's block is a common issue, just please don't drop below three sentences. #11. If you have read these rules in their complete glory, please put "Angels are Among Us" in your character sheet. If I do not see this, you do not get accepted. Plain and simple. I will tell you that you can have a place once you've read the rules. #12. I know there are a lot of rules, but bare with me. I'm trying to prevent stupidity before it happens and we can prevent many shit flippings and problems this way. If the problem is in the rules before it occurs, than I might not have to repeat it twenty two times in the posts below. Trust me, it's happened before. #13. All characters must be approved by me before joining the role play. This is to prevent stupidity and, once more, to prevent shit flippings. #14. This role play is NOT for children. 18+ PLEASE. I expect there to be cursing ((see above)), violence, and maybe other things. I am not getting kicked over a child seeing this. Simple. #15. This is the end. This isn't really a rule, it's more of a guide line... I wanted to end on a multiple of five. Sue me. Anyways. Don't make more characters than you can handle. If you can handle three, good for you, if you can't and you know it, don't try.
