  1. Though out the centuries, the mages of Europe have fought, forged alliances, been brought together by common foes, and have been split due to conflicting goals. One of the largest and long lasting groups however has been the magical community that was nestled within the mysterious Illuminate.


    With more organization and common purpose then most they have grown over the generations and now how influences in pockets all over the world. One of the things that unify them is their various tower wizards. These wizards both protect and utilize energy points across the world as they are found, having tall structures built in the location on land to connect earth and sky. Places like the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty and then in the 60s the Space Needle in Seattle.


    The 1962 World's Fair was a great cover for the activity that surrounds establishing and attuning a new tower point, a technique relatively new to the Illuminate, and a secret they guard closely. Only the chosen tower wizard and the high council truly understand how a tower is constructed and controlled.


    So when the delayed magical backlash of the Space Needle Wizard's death finally was caught, it had been held for a considerable time and the degrade nature of the signal made it impossible to assign a means or a time, the Illuminate knew that one of their towers had been compromised. It was now time to send someone to clean up the mess.


    Welcome to Seattle in the 1980s. Hair is big and neon is everywhere. This game is set in the Elswen Universe. This is an urban fantasy. Your character is either a human with magical abilities, or a magical creature trying to blend in to human society. Someone modified in some way is also fine, but if taking the sci-fi rout remember to keep in mind the 80s and magical motif of this plot. Your reasons for being in Seattle are your own, but you either are an agent for the Illuminate or will soon be recruited by the head of investigation of the Tower Take-over.


    This is a light hearted adventure. While characters can die, do not think this will be grim dark. Jokes and references to 80s culture and Seattle is highly encouraged. At this time this is an invite only game, but if you really really want in, send me a PM and we will talk.


    Bio Necessities. Feel free to add more information though!

  2. Character Name: Tiffany Biffney


    Gender: Female


    Species/Race: Human


    Age: 21


    Occupation: Singer at a club


    Type of Magic/Special Talents: Metalbending abilities [lockpicking is her specialty] but they are unreliable


    General Appearance (image fine): http://www.chicagocostume.com/product_images/x/165/69126-80s-party-girl-adult-costume1__12485_zoom.jpg [It won't let me insert it >:[ ]


    Current Goal/Purpose: To have as much fun as humanly possible. She will, of course, be joining the fight against the new tower wizard when it comes down to that >:]

    General Personality: Tiffany tends to offend some people since she gets overly excited about things and loves to embellish her stories. She's very cheerful and a bit on the hyper side, and thinks that every day there is at least one moment where it is perfectly acceptable to burst into song and dance around. She gets a bit snappish when people insult her, but she's almost always amused by it since she's so used to it.


    General History: She's very secretive about it and will say to anybody who asks that she was born a rockstar and leave it at that. -nods-
     
  3. Character Name: Vivien Quarterstone

    Gender: Male

    Species/Race:
    Dragon

    Age:
    Roughly 35 years in human appearance. Actual age is much older, closer to 135 instead.

    Occupation:
    Professor -

    Type of Magic/Special Talents:
    Dragon Magic and a Dash of High Wizardry. Special talents include a high mastery of fire magics, both of the natural dragon type and the charms and spells he's learned from his books.

    General Appearance:
    (Will add image links later as well) Vivien stands about six foot even and of regular weight. His dark hair is cut short in a preppy style and he wears large, square rimmed tortoiseshell glasses with coke-bottle lenses. He's always well put together and prefers Ivy League/Preppy style and has an assortment of various button-down shirts with even more ties. His shoe closet is massive. He clearly lives by 'Clothes make the man'. He is a little out of place amid the much older Professors but he dresses like them, or tries to.
    As a Dragon he's incredibly large, about two and a half stories tall. Viv's coloration is black-green to red and the green shine on his black scales is only obvious under certain lighting conditions. In general it just makes him look wet and shiny most of the time. He's winged with classic batlike wings and sports a long tail with the typical European spade. His wedge shaped head is very refined and elegant for a dragon his size. His front feet are more like hands and clawed.


    Current Goal/Purpose:
    Until recently his goal had been finding the perfect Professor's jacket and the perfect matching baby jacket. Now though, his mind is set to two things. Revenge and raising his (currently an egg) dragonet as well as he can by himself. Keeping his brother out of trouble is also something to think about.

    General Personality:
    Vivien is serious but he does have a sense of humor, somewhere. He loves teaching and doesn't get too mad at his students, even when they are jerks. He does have a dark side of course, he's jealous and vain like any dragon. He's single minded in whatever purpose he's set for himself and anything that gets in his way will be removed. He's not above playing dirty. He considers himself very human for a dragon but clearly he isn't

    General History:
    Vivien has been taking care of his little brother since he was hatched, their parents never had much use or love for the two children. Needless to say, Viv doesn't talk to his parents very much. Once Vivien hit majority in dragon years, he left and took responsibility for his brother as well. He went to a human college and self taught himself all the human magics expected of a Wizard. Vivien has always passed every test except the ones he sets for himself. In school he met the love of his life, it didn't take long for the two of them to set up house with Vivien's brother as the sort of 'proto-child'. They were a very happy family as he got a job at a local college as a Professor. Many years later, Vivien and Tessa decided to finally have their own child as the brother was finally off to college. Then tragedy hit and the rest is history. Vivien has sworn revenge on those who took his Mate from him.
     
  4. Character Name: Debra "Debbie" McGraw

    Gender: Female

    Species/Race: Human

    Age: 27

    Occupation: Illuminate Agent, cover as a temp office worker

    Type of Magic/Special Talents: Ritualistic magic, specializing in Nercormancic spells and embedding spells into objects.

    General Appearance (image fine): standing at 5'8" Debbie is more legs then body, which she accentuates by wearing jean mini skirts often. She wears perhaps too much neon colors, except in her hair where she has it teased out and covered in tons of hair spray. She often looks like she ready to go have a good time somewhere.

    Current Goal/Purpose: Debbie enjoys working for the Illuminate, she gets to meet interesting people, go to strange locations and help keep the world a better place, as far as the organization sees it. However she misses the sense of belonging, always on the go. It might be time to ask for a permeant location.

    General Personality: Debbie is a happy go lucky, bubble gum smacking, dancing down the sidewalk, singing out to her hearts content type of girl. That is until the shit hits the fan, then she's all business. It's like a light switch, when she's serious it's hard to get her to relax or recognize a joke, but when nothing important is going on its almost impossible to nail her down for anything.

    General History: Born the middle child and only girl in the family, Debbie always felt like the odd one out. Her father was always working and her mother never connected to her. It was almost as though she was a let down by being a girl, or maybe because she wasn't like her mother. In either case Debbie was not well understood, and that wasn't even because she saw people that didn't exist walking down halls or hearing voices of the long dead. Fortunately while being the black sheep, a kind neighbor saw Debbie's plight and lead her to her first mentor, a ghost whisperer, but while she had the gift it wasn't her primary one and she soon was looked after by a second mentor and then a third. By the time she graduated high school she barely had a relationship with any of her family and when she went off to college she never returned home. Her scholarships did not come from normal institutions, but by those supported by the Illuminate so when she graduated after getting her BS in history, they brought her in as a full member not caring about her college credentials, but her other education.
