From Darkness, Into Light
« on: July 29, 2013, 02:49:41 am »
Way back in 2007, there was a group that started up a small RP called In Darkness.  Unfortunately, that RP fell by the wayside, but the idea has been in my head for quite some time, so...here goes.

2013.  The world is much like the one we live in today, but with one difference.  Instead of Humans, the world is instead populated by anthropomorphic Dinosaurs.  All technology and such has been developed for them, so everything is similar to how it works in our world.  

However, 6 years ago, the world was shaken to it's very foundations due to the actions of a mysterious cult.  They attempted to tear open the boundaries between worlds, and in fact, very nearly succeeded.  However, before they could, a group of heroes stopped them, barely averting calamity.  This tear was thought sealed, but as of recently, strange occurrences have begun to crop up again, very nearly resembling six years ago, to the few who remember those days.  Strange, eye-like graffiti, missing persons...and at times, a strange, almost ghostly replica of the real world seeming to appear...

Now the heroes of the past must work together with others who seek to discover the root of this anomaly, and in doing so, prevent the world from coming to ruin once again...
_______________________________________________________________

Factions:

Heroes of the Past: (Reserved for players in the original RP):
The various figures who stood against the Watcher's emergence in the past, they are all seemingly normal, though exposure to such high levels of energy may have changed them in ways beyond imagining...
     Members:
           Dante (SFR)
           Sieg (SFR)
           Hunter (GVG)
           Tex (GVG)
           Arcia (SFR)
           Lady (SFR)
           Vergil (SFR)
           Killer (GVG)
           Rocker (GVG)
           Hex (GVG)

New Vigilantes: (Good Guys)
Civilians dedicated to fighting crime, and protecting those who can't protect themselves, these streetwise combatants use anything that they can lay hands on to defend themselves and the people they protect.
     Members:
         Kiddo (GVG?)
         Vincent (Pterano)

Mercenaries:
Amoral guns-for-hire from a variety of past involvements, ranging from Ex-Military to criminals, to disgraced police and law enforcement, these hardened warriors tend to favor more contemporary firearms and melee weapons, and are motivated solely by coin.  Their loyalty is but a commodity to be bought and sold...
    Members:
         Umbra (bushwacked)

Reborn of the Watcher: (Cultists)
Servants of the cult that attempted to tear asunder the world six years ago, they have bided their time, gathering new followers and beginning to plan their masters release once again...

Civilians:
Noncombatants who live normal lives, seemingly unaware of the current goings on, unless they are forced into it by some means...

Awesome, thanks! I have an idea for a character, I'll edit this post soon to show the info once I've made up my mind.

EDIT: Ok, here's the profile, if something seems like it wouldn't fit into the story, let me know and I'll change it.

Name: Umbra
Gender: Male
Age: 24
Species: Compysognathus
Appearance: Dark green skin with orange patches, wiry physique, short stature (stands about a head or two shorter than most other characters)
Occupation: Mercenary, ex military sniper
Personality: Sarcastic, cocky
Weapons/items/gadgets: Sniper rifle, two handguns, combat knife
Abilities: Expert marksman, proficient in hand to hand combat with his knife.

Brief bio: Immoral, ruthless and utterly without mercy, Umbra is one of the most notorious mercenaries amongst the crime lords of the criminal underworld.
After his removal from the armed forces at the age of only 19, when he executed a savage war criminal his team were under strict orders to bring in alive, Umbra become disillusioned with the world, taking the viewpoint, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em". By 22 he'd made a name for himself for 2 reasons: his high asking prices, and the fact that he never misses.
Often hired as an assassin, Umbra prefers the feel of taking out a target from afar using his trusty custom sniper rifle, though he isn't afraid to get up close and personal with his 2 hand guns and ferocious combat knife, knowing his small size usually leads to his being underestimated.
When hired by an anonymous party to wipe out the 'Heroes of the Past', it seems like just another job. Maybe if Umbra knew what was at stake, he wouldn't be so quick to follow through...

OK, here goes! Hope it's OK.

Name: Vincent Rubio

Gender: Male

Age: 37

Species: Velociraptor

Occupation/Faction: Private Investigator/New Vigilantes

Appearance: Red skinned with black stripes along his back and tail. Cream colored underbelly. Tends to wear a trench coat and fedora when working.

Personality: Witty, clever; occasionally lazy. Not good with paying bills. Hard-boiled. Struggles with his past.

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: Won't typically use weapons as he has his claws, but does carry a sidearm for the more dangerous jobs.

Special Skills: Expert detective, but is typically underemployed. Has a good eye for mystery solving and mental puzzles, and isn't bad in combat either.

Brief Bio: Vincent is an underemployed private investigator who's had run-ins with the cult in the past. Occasionally he'll receive work that greatly interests him, but more often than not he'll be stuck tailing cheating husbands or unfaithful wives. He typically struggles to pay the bills, but six years ago, he became embroiled in an investigation into missing dinos that led him to the cult. Falling hard for one of the cult's leaders, Vincent battled to keep his head afloat and finish his investigation whilst falling deeper in love with the mysterious Circe, the seductive female velociraptor who began consuming his thoughts and emotions. While not taking part in the final battle that resulted in the cult's defeat, Vincent did at least help defeat one of their sects, but tragically lost Circe in the process. Circe seemed to come to the realization that she was a mere pawn in the cult's game, and sacrificed herself to save Vincent. Convinced that she might be alive somehow, and unable to come to terms with what might have been her death, Vincent tries to uncover proof that she might have survived whilst slogging through his usually mundane investigations. Recently, he's been taking cases that seem to portend the cult's disturbing return, hoping the cases are just coincidence...

Wicked awesome!  Now I'm gonna have to step my game up!

Alright, I suppose it's time to re-introduce the heroes of the past!

Name: Dante S. Starfall
Gender: Male
Age: 32
Species: Troodon
Occupation/Faction: Freelancer/Hero of the Past

Appearance: Dante is a tall, thin, wiry-looking troodon, easily picked out of a crowd by his vibrant coat and ever-present sunglasses.  His normal outfit has toned down significantly from six years ago, now simplified to a red shirt, black vest, black jeans with leather chaps over them, a pair of boots cut to allow free access to his claws, and his red trenchcoat.  His hair is off-brown, and hangs down in bangs and some length in the back.
 
Personality:  Dante is a cheerful, easygoing, and friendly person on the whole, though any threats at Tex or Deva, and he reveals that there's a dangerous, powerful, and utterly fearless fighter underneath his smile.  Also, after getting married, he's become a rather doting, affectionate father and husband.

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: 2xPistols, customized to fire modified .338 Lapua Magnum rounds, Longsword slung across his back when he knows combat is unavoidable.  

Special Skills: Dante possesses a superior regenerative factor, able to get back up from near-fatal wounds with little to no downtime, though occasionally his healing is blocked, or becomes slightly problematic.  He is also considerably stronger than he lets on, able to swing his massive blade like it weighed nothing, and fire his dual pistols with nearly no recoil, a fact that should be impossible for a "normal" saurian
________________________________________________________

Name:  Sieg Warheit
Gender: Male
Age: 25
Species: Deinonychus
Occupation/Faction: Teacher/Hero of the Past

Appearance: Sieg is a fairly nondescript saurian, save for the shock of vibrant red hair on his head.  When he's teaching his mythology classes, he tends to wear a simple black suit, with a tailcoat instead of a normal suit jacket.  Underneath, however, he always wears a fitted suit of body armor, a holdover from growing up in conflict.  When battle rises, he instead wears a black jacket with a strange crest on the back, along with a black shirt and pants, with a new set of red armor that now covers both arms.  His boots are both cut to allow access to his claws.  His hair is cut in a spiky, windswept style, with bangs over his right eye.

Personality:  Sieg has changed quite a bit in the last six years.  No longer anywhere near as quiet and sullen as he had been, he now possesses a happier, more open personality that can almost mask the ever-present edge of someone who has been raised and shaped by combat.  

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: .45 Revolver-Gold Plated, Words "Love" and "Heaven" on the grip, Hunters and his names on the barrel.  Sword "Shadowflame", kept in a cloak of shadows and always nearby.

Special Skills: Limited Umbramancy (Shadow Magic)- Uses shadows to cloak himself and others, or his weaponry, or to enhance the blade, reach, and damage output of Shadowflame.  Peak Saurian physicality and skill, minor regenerative ability.  Some knowledge of arcane magic
________________________________________

Name: Vergil X. Starfall
Gender: Male
Age: 35
Species: Troodon
Occupation/Faction: Freelancer/Hero of the Past

Appearance: Vergil is very similar to Dante, save for his slightly more robust frame, much less wiry than his sibling.  Unlike Dante, his sense of style is more subdued, favoring a blue trenchcoat and black outfit.  Wears similar boots to Sieg and Dante.  His hair is worn in a spiky, slicked-back style.
 
Personality:  Calm, unflappable, and ever the stoic to his brother's emotions, Vergil often is mistaken for being cold or indifferent by many people who don't know him.  In truth, he is rather passionate and strong-willed, much like his brother, however, he simply expresses it in a much subtler fashion.  The only person who manages to coax out his expressions in full is Hex, the love of his life.  

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: "Ooryu-Ken", A nodachi which he keeps hidden in a dimensionally-displaced state in a silver briefcase.

Special Skills: Rapid short-distance teleportation, with a range limited to roughly 50 yards per "jump".  Full 360 degree range of freedom to teleport.  Also capable of creating glowing replicas of weaponry.
_________________________________________

Name: Arcia Rinslet
Gender: Female
Age: 24
Species: Struthiomimus
Occupation/Faction: Works for Tex/Hero of the Past

Apperance: Arcia is a petite young saurian, frequently seen dressed in bright colors and light fabrics.  Her usual outfit is a white shirt with laces up the front, a brown corset, and a set of blue shorts.  A yellow vest, blue scarf, and thigh-high brown boots complete the ensemble.  Her auburn hair is worn long, adorned with a new flower decoration on the right side.  

Personality: Cheerful, upbeat, and bubbly, Arcia tends to be a ray of sunshine in any group she's a part of.  Enthusiastic about anything she sets herself to, she wears her heart on her sleeve, and never hesitates to speak her mind.  Loyal to Kiddo, who has been her longtime friend, and is fiercely devoted to her mate Killer.  

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: "Silver Ghost", Dual pistols of an unknown caliber, capable of rapid fire.  

Special Skills: Superb athletic ability, able to do things like run up walls and scale them, as well as pull off feats that would make even a professional gymnast envious.  She also has the ability to fire her own natural energy through her guns, making them capable of firing unlimited bullets.  
________________________________________

Name: Mary "Lady" Lumine
Gender: Female
Age: 27
Species: Velociraptor
Occupation/Faction: Freelancer/Hero of the Past

Apperance: Mary is a tall, statuesque female with two different-color eyes.  Her normal apparel is a white button-down shirt, tied to reveal her midsection, and red, tight-fitted pants.  Her boots are similar in cut to the boy's, however, hers reach up to her knees.  Her raven hair is cut in a ragged bob.  

Personality: Mary is tough and reliable, if at times, a bit stubborn.  Determined to prove that she's just as strong as the boys, she has a tendency to leap into things without thinking, which lands her in trouble quite often, but she also has the will and flexibility to get herself out.

Weapons/Items/Gadgets: Unknown amounts of guns, all fitted with large bayonets.  

Special Skills: Precise accuracy, strength and skill well past that of average saurians, and the ability to create extradimensional spaces, often used to hide weapons, and sometimes used to augment her team's skills.

Oof, all these characters seem really cool! I didn't know you needed to give such detail, so I went back and edited my post to add a brief bio for Umbra, hope it's alright.
