Trehpsacore: Asylum for the Soon to be Gifted

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by LittleRedPanda, Nov 6, 2015.

  1. Several hundred years ago, our ancestors participated in the last great war. World War 3, they called it. It was massive and devastating, destroying most of civilization. The remainder of human kind knew they could not survive alone, and thus went about building a new race to coexist alongside them. These new creations were metal automatons, looking exactly like intricate metallic versions of humans. At first they were treated like equals, holding jobs, inventing, even having relationships with the humans. However, as time went on the human/automaton relationship devolved. The automatons are now mass produced solely to be servants, nannies, caretakers, and factory workers. They are programmed to have a one-track, work driven mind. Yet every now and then, one is made with a defect. Humans don't know why but some of the automatons come out of creation with the ability to think for themselves. They are quickly sent away to a place with unknown whereabouts. It is called The Asylum and the automatons are sent to be crushed and refashioned into something new. Everyone knows about The Asylum. But not much is known about where it lies or even exactly what they do. They only know that The Asylum is responsible for most of mankind's advancements in the last century. For mankind never has stopped in it's quest to engineer, modify, and control the next new thing.

    The Asylum dwells somewhere in a large city-state called Trehpsacore. It is shaped in a gigantic, walled egg, divided into two sections. The outside of the two sections, the closest to the outer wall, "Trehps", is the extremely rich section. The people there work in lavish offices, have large parties and satiate their fleshly desires as they wish. Prostitution, gambling, and drugs are big businesses and considered commonplace in Trehps. Parties are thrown nightly and the fashion is ostentatious and vital to the inner circles. Trehps people do anything to be popular and look fashionable. It is considered fashionable to have an automaton servant, worker, or concubine. In contrast, "The Core" is extremely poor. The people there work in the factories alongside the automaton race, making nice things for Trehps in terrible conditions. Starving to death in Core is extremely common. The few who can afford houses are lucky. There is an abundance of homeless people in Core. Trehps and The Core are separated by a series of inner walls and gates. You don't just leave Trehps to go to The Core or vice versa. The communities are vastly different and there is much animosity from people on both sides, as has always been the case. They even have little slur nicknames for each other. The Core people are called Slum Slugs to those on the lavish side of the wall and the Trehps people have been dubbed Elitists by those under their feet. This is simply every day life for them.

    However, something fishy is afoot. Researchers from The Asylum have been "borrowing" orphans, street rats, and anyone else who looks like a good candidate from both areas of Trehpsacore under the guise of training them to be Researchers one day. Of course, no one even bats an eye. But for the candidates? Their life has now vastly changed. They awake in a huge high- tech house together, filled with rooms for each orphan and every invention and want anyone could have. However, this combination of kids can be disastrous. When the Slum Slugs and Elitists mix, people have been known to be killed. But this strange new "Orphanage", although a blessing to The Core kids who are used to terrible conditions, is frightening. The Researchers talk about making their new "experiments" into the perfect life form for every Trehps house. "The next big thing". The candidates are subjected to all sorts of experiments and tests to give them strange supernatural powers. The children are all groomed and conditioned to be the most fashionable creatures in Trehpsacore. The doors are locked to keep the kids from ever trying to escape. And what's worse? No one can even remember their own name. When they wake up they only remember the name bestowed upon them by the Researchers.

    The rules here are pretty simple.

    1: No Godmodding/Metagaming.
    You would think this is common sense but I still see it all the time.

    2: No Gary Stus/Mary Sues. Romance is permitted, however, it is not the main point. Flowing off of that:

    3: This is not a Libertine Roleplay. If your characters start getting all hot and heavy I will kill them off.

    4: I'm in charge here. If I ask you to change your character or an action or something please comply.

    I'm not a bad lady, I promise. As long as you follow these rules we will be the best of friends. I don't bite. Hard.

    I would like to try and keep a balanced gender ratio, please.


    Females:
    Kisa
    Ali Baba
    Yuna

  2. Name (The one given by the Researchers): Sameal (Just google it. or if you cba
    SAMAEL (סמאל): In Jewish mythology, this is the name of an archangel, a fallen angel, the Angel of Death or Poison, the accuser, seducer, and destroyer famously known as The Grim Reaper. He is said to be both good and evil, having been one of the heavenly host. He rules over seven habitations called Sheba Ha-yechaloth, infernal realms of the Earth. The Talmud states: "the evil Spirit, Satan, and Sama'el the Angel of Death, are the same"; and Samael is also therein equated with the biblical serpent who tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. He is called the Prince of Darkness and chief of the Dragons of Evil and is held responsible for the scorching wind of the desert called the simoom. It is probably the Hebrew form of Syrian Shemal ("left"), but composed of 'el "god" and suwm "to create" or "to place, to set," hence "whom God makes." It is also sometimes rendered "venom of God." Also spelled Samil and Sammael.

    Old Injuries/Scars/Tattoos: A torn open ying-yan symbol on his shoulder blades with a bleeding heart hanging from them, and a Mechanical arm looking Electoo (it pulses in time with his heart rate) and a multitde of scars across his chest from god knows what.

    After Recent experiments, the subjects eyes have begun to change and become less human. The latest Optical Photo is stored below

    [​IMG]

    It is noted however, When the subjects powers are not under use the red centre of the eye appears to be a far duller red where as when the powers are in use the subjects pupils appear to be capable of giving off enough light to make them visible even in the pitch black.
    Personality:
    He is warm, light hearted, and above all, chaotic in his heart. He will do things just to annoy the scientists, and often take shine to random other subjects and just do his best to aid them, ranging from outright breaking them out of situations through to just dropping out of airvents (explained in a moment) to talk
    Biography:


    Born to the core, His parents were working for -Redacted- and were unable to care for him this caused him to become self sufficient and capable of surviving on the bare minimum. while working at -redacted- his pearents were exposed to contaminants which were passed on to Subject, Causing his DNA strants to be come malleable and suitable for adjustment. This drew the interest of -Redacted- and allowed The Subject to catch our interest this resulted in him being suggested for the Dracomorph project. hopefully this won't conflict with -redacted- and he will be able to use his abilities to their full potential.
    Additional notes; The subjects parents passed away 2 months after the subject as aquired, This is suspected to be due to the contaminant, we will be watching the subject for similar symptoms, however, the splicing with the cultured DNA appears to have allowed for some stability, the contaminant has also been extracted and will be used on subject -redacted- for use in the -redacted- project.



    Projected Ability: Dracomorph, The intent to share powers, and appearance with a Dragon and eventually develop the ability to transform in to one.
    Current abilites; Pyromancy, Lesser Dracomorph (dragon scales and claws), MicroMorph (tiny dragon, enough to move through the air vents)

    WIP.

  5. That made me feel sorry for the Grim Reaper. He kills whoever he touches so he never gets to have sex without being a necrophiliac.
     
  6. also; I got first char sheet up!
     
  7. @EddiEddi What does "The intent to share powers" mean? He will be able to use the powers of other characters?
     
  8. "The intent to share powers, and appearance with a Dragon"
    Dragon. of a dragon, with a dragon. as a dragon.
     
  9. Oh, I see. I missed half the sentence :D
     
  10. Its fine,
     


  11. Project Name:
    Pide
    [​IMG]
    Age:
    19

    Sex:
    Male

    Sexual Orientation:

    Presumed bi as subject has shown no preference to any gender, but has shown interest for both

    Old Injuries/Scars/Tattoos:

    Subject showed no signs of scars or damage prior to being entered into the program. This situation has now changed as the subject shows a total of 3 scars. Other alterations that have been done is the adding of several metal vents on the subjects face and a set of lenses into the subjects eyes.

    Personality:

    After several tests and observation subject has been shown to be reliable, loyal, humble and patient. Further personality traits Pide have shown is that he is an observant and very imaginative man. However Pide has shown that if pushed into a situation he does not feel comfortable with he can become cripplingly shy and stressed, to the point where he will try to escape by any means necessary.


    Biography:

    The subject was born in The Core and is the son to -classified- and -classified-. Subject lived with his parents until the age of 8 at which time he was sent to Therps to work as a servant for the -classified- family. It is at this time unknown what kind of services the subject was put in charge of, but its suspected he was put in charge of taking care of the family's guests and everything that entails 1*.


    Subject stayed with the family up until the late stages of his 18 year where he was at some point thrown back onto the streets 2* .It did not take long before the subject had real struggles about acquiring food and water, at which point contact was made. Subject was quickly extracted from
    the streets after contact was made and taken into the Azylum.

    Addendum

    1* During an interview subject disclosed what kind of services he provided while employed by the-classified-. A full list can be found bellow this point, but along with his servant role he was also rented out to anyone willing to pay

    - General housework (cleaning, making food, etc)
    - Helping the children with whatever was needed

    2* Subject was sent into the street as the family decided to acquire a set of automatons as they would fulfill all the same tasks faster and also because they would be cheaper in the long run.


    Projected Ability:

    The goal being worked towards with project Pide is making a human that is able to manipulate, generate and cancel sound.

  12. LittleRedPanda updated Trehpsacore: Asylum for the Soon to be Gifted with a new update entry:

    Character Name

    Read the rest of this update entry...
     
  13. May I ask why the fairy tale names a thing ? Because male fairy tale names are usually not gems...
     
  14. Neither are female ones... and I've been looking up fairy tales left right and center to find a decent name. Most characters either have no name at all or have rather ugly names.
     
  15. Male fairytale names are the most generic thing there is... there is like 3 Robin and god knows how many Jack. Pluss most fairytale guys are never given names or they are called really dumb things.
     
  16. Go with Rumplestiltskin for the lolz.
     
  17. Nah I actually found one. Long live Pide from Pide Piper XD
     
  18. I never realised that was his name, I figured he was one of the nameless ones.
     
  19. I dont know if it is his name, but I have just decided it is
     
  20. I wonder if GM will let me turn a few really awesome modern stories into fairy tales? It's set in the far future after all, so there's plenty of time for them to become legendary.
