Zoids: Like Clockwork OOC

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by driven to drift, Nov 19, 2012.

  1. Let's settle in for story time, shall we?

    After decades of peace, Planet Zi has erupted into war yet again. The General in charge of the Guylos Empire military has brought forth a plan to end the rekindled war between themselves and the Helic Republic in the grandest of ways: recreate and take control of the Deathsaurer in a scale manageable to their military personnel. After much deliberation and a serious military loss, the leader agreed and the military’s researchers and scientists set to work to build this monstrosity. Once plans were drawn up and confirmed, they set out to create the Zoid on a small scale before building the real deal.

    Now enter the Red Death of the Guylos Empire: a lieutenant colonel feared by those on the receiving end of the blades of her black Slash Liger. The Republic prided itself in its secret weapon and brought her to the battlefield to massacre the enemy. She was considered a heartless, soulless and mindless killer: the perfect weapon and pilot. The General in charge of her battalion was also the overseer of the project to recreate the Deathsaurer. She was meant to take control of the powerful Zoid in its final form. However the Red Death was also to participate in several lab tests...which was where she met the head scientist. He was friendly - talked to her even when she said nothing back. Eventually, she did start talking back. He managed to get her to open up and even return more to the personality she had as an adolescent and early teen. Slowly but surely, she became friendly - willing to speak to others and hold conversations. It had been three months since she had last been on the battlefield and she was a completely different woman. Even the other soldiers were beginning to whisper and talk about what this meant for themselves and the battlefield.

    …and then the small-scale Deathsaurer was completed.

    Everything was going well until they lost control. The Zoid demolished the lab and killed everyone present, including the head scientist. When the news reached her, she stopped. Thoughts snapped together in her head and by that night, she disappeared. Gone from the Empire entirely. The Empire was absolutely frantic in its search for her, but turned up nothing.

    She laid low for two full years...in the Helic Republic. She had befriended a scientist and archaeologist who helped her transfer the core of her Slash Liger into another Zoid that he had unearthed and had been unable to bring to life. There were rumors that the Empire's Red Death had died. No one was suspicious of the unusual Hayate Liger and its friendly, red-headed pilot. She worked odd jobs and left people oblivious to her former identity.

    ...until a certain pilot recognized her. He was a sort of mercenary and managed to recognize her almost immediately…much to her dismay. He wanted a battle - and she refused until he'd finally pushed one-too many buttons. He was an impressive pilot and she was actually starting to have fun when a mass of lower level Zoids surrounded them and a new communication was established between them. After years of them searching, her former General informed her that they had almost completed the full-scale Deathsaurer and they wanted her back to pilot it. Naturally, she wasn't planning on going back, but did have every intention of making his life a living hell to prevent him from succeeding. After taking out the small Zoids, the two retreated back to the nearest village for the evening.

    Naturally, she had to explain the story to him in full detail, and while she didn’t want this on anyone else, in the back of her mind, she knew she was probably going to need a bit of help to make this job easier. To her surprise, he agreed, with his own reasons he didn’t share and she didn’t ask for. They took it upon themselves to find pilots that they could trust and who would agree to help them. All for the purpose of one thing and one thing only: put a stop to all of this once and for all to prevent the inevitable destruction of life as they knew it.


    Dramatic enough for you? We hope so.


    At any rate!
    I am uncertain of the number of players I would like for this particular roleplay, however I would like a balance of both male and female characters and also Empire and Republic-siders. The Mercenary is up for grabs, and if someone wants them, the General and Archaeologist are as well if anybody wants them.The Mercenary is the only one that needs to be filled before the roleplay starts. If all else fails, the General and Archaeologist can be NPCs. Those are the only specific characters I had in mind, and the background, personality and everything else is completely up to you! All characters welcome~


    Now for the character sheet!
    Note: please do not use very light font colors.
