War in Sanctuary City OOC

Post by tashathewolf » Thu Dec 28, 2017 12:11 pm

Well I am officially back in the swing of things. Which means it is time for another story, possibly lame, but who cares I am doing it anyway...even if I am a bit rusty. Okay so here we go...

The world we know has developed in a surprising. Remember the monsters we once were told were nothing but a myth? An urban legend meant to scare children and entertain the imagination of those who liked to lose touch with reality? What if I told you that the world you live in today was not reality, but rather the stories you grew up hearing was? Vampires, wolves, half breeds, and humans live together, though so peacefully as one would imagine. In fact, in this world there is a war. A war that many are blind to or pretend it does not exist to keep from picking sides and getting in the middle. A war that takes the innocent lives of any species without a second thought. Let me explain this in a better way, like that of a food chain:

There are the Vampires - They appear human but in fact are not. Rather some act more human than most humans themselves. Most of them move through the world quietly but efficiently. You have some you want peace in the world and those who wish otherwise. Those who want it to be the old way where humans feared them and wolves were nothing more than pets.

There are the Wolves - Like Vampires can move among humans almost unnoticeable. Though you have some you prefer to be in their original form from time to time. They also seek to keep the humans safe from the vampires. Majority of them hate what the vampires are and what they had done to them. A one point in history, vampires kept wolves as pets and even used them to hunt one another. Something, that even with a so called treaty now, will never be erased. There are those who wish to take over and show the vampires they can no longer be the top of the game as they believe themselves to be.

There are the Humans - They take neither sides though they are caught in the middle. In fact, the humans are so feed up with both races that they have created a Hunter's Society specifically for arresting and detaining those whom do not abide by the rules they have given them. These include: no feeding off unwilling humans, turning people, or murder.

There are the Halfbreeds - They tend to be ignored by all the races as no one truly knows what their stance on everything is as most either agree or disagree with fighting for peace and vice versa.

As you can imagine this world sounds like a fantasy but its not as great. There is a war silently being fought about who should oversee whom. Rather than coming together like they did once before to seek peace, it has turned into utter chaos. Especially with the families with old bloodlines in both the vampiric and wolf society. You can either be a peacekeeper or a peacebreaker. Unfortunately there is no in between. Everyone has to choose a side no matter the circumstances. Here our story takes place in the city of Seattle or as it is named now, Sanctuary City.

Okay well that is all I have. Since I suck at villain characters, just ask anyone on the site they will tell you it is not my best strong suit, I was thinking we could create something. Or, to be hones, I am all for free writing as well. I do find that that tends to be fun too. Also, I will make the first post for the IC in which it will start with a ball being held thus to get everyone in place for wherever they wish to be.

Rules:
1. No god-moding
2. Be respectful to one another. If there is something wrong then just talk it out calm and collectively.
3. Please do not stress about grammar. Everyone makes mistakes from time to time so no big deal. Just as long as I can understand what you are saying lol
4. Any other rules admins have asked to be followed
*As you can tell I am not very strict. So do not be afraid to ask for something or need something clarified

Well that is my little spill. I know it may not be much but I am hoping everyone who gets involved can help build the story. That is my most favorite part of RPing, is the way people come together with their ideas to make a story that is not only unique but so engrossing that I can never stop re-reading them.

Character sheet
Name: Ana McKelly

Age: 100 [Looks 20]

Gender: Female

Race: Vampire

Appearance: Ana has long silver hair with ruby red eyes. She has dark tan complex, smooth skin, a small frame, and calm aura about her.
Image
Special abilities: Sniping, heightened senses, strength, can walk in the sunlight, and ability to read minds (sometimes unwillingly)

Weaknesses: Holy water, wolf bite, anti-vampire weapons

Background: Ana is a member of one of the famous families, the McKelly family. They were one of the few families who motioned for peace in the past. Though Ana's great grandfather wishes things to go back to how they use to be, where vampires ruled. But Ana, she likes that there is peace between the races, though she is not blind to the war. She only intervenes when she feels it is necessary. In her youth, she was quite disliked because of what she was therefore she stayed to herself and has mostly kept it that way. She likes to take walks in the city primarily at night. Ana can be gentle and harsh at the same time. She is not one for violence but if unavoidable then she will fight.

Ana was first introduced to the sheer reality of this world and its war when she had come across an aftermath of what appeared to have been a fight a few years back. There were several humans seriously injured and wolves as well as vampires dead. However, while inspecting the scene she was caught by the human Hunter's Society and accused of being the one who had caused the deaths. It took days for things to be cleared up and within that time frame she was not treated as kindly as she treats others. Her father had given her a silver handgun with her name engraved on it after that incident. Not to cause trouble but to protect herself. He knew he could not keep her in their manor forever but he also could not let her go unguarded.

Name: Hel Kebechet

Age: 21

Gender: Female

Race: Vampire/Werewolf Hybrid

Appearance:

A closely shaved head accentuates her large, lash framed, doe eyes nicely. Hel is a striking figure, standing 5’9” with a swimmer’s build—wide shoulders, trim waist, slim hips, and legs that go for miles. Her dark ebony skin plays off of her brilliantly blue eyes in a gorgeous contrast of color. While she is distinctly feminine with high cheekbones and curves to match, her muscles ripple underneath her skin with no timidity, hinting at strength far greater than what she may appear to possess. She has a charming smile, complete with two short fangs.

As a wolf she is midnight black, her fur giving off no sheen. Her fur is matte, allowing her extra cover in the dead of night. Hel is sleek and fast, with a sharply chiseled muzzle.

Special abilities:

Shapeshifting into her wolf form
Brute strength
Can mentally inflict pain (unknown)


Note: Blood drinking will increase the strength of her abilities (unknown)

Weaknesses:

Sensitive to light- In her human form, Hel is consistently wearing sunglasses to protect herself. Though her vampire genes do not cause her to die due to sun exposure, her eyes are dazzled by the sun to the point where she cannot see.

Sensitive to silver-Silver in its purest form will burn her, but not as severely as it would to a pure werewolf.

Mental Exhaustion (unknown)- If she exerts too much mental effort inflicting pain, she will collapse, leaving her open to any attack.

Stuck in Form- Being part wolf, Hel utilizes this form frequently as she is no longer sensitive to light. However, if she is critically injured in either form, she will not be able to shapeshift until such time that she no longer critically injured.

Dependence on Blood (experienced but not known explicitly)- Hel needs to consume a quantity of blood in addition to the normal food she eats. She often gets this through consuming raw meat in her wolf form. She does not know that it is the blood that sustains her—rather she believes it to be an animalistic addiction from her wolf ancestry. Being largely vegetarian during her human hours, she often deprives herself leading to exhaustion.

Background:

Named for several goddesses of death, Hel Kebechet has always lived in her pack. She was raised by the matriarchy of the pack, a fearsome figure, who has commanded her particular pack with a reign of terror. Yes, Marzanna was an imposing mother to have.

Marzanna has expressed to Hel that vampires are beyond saving—peace is no longer an option. Beyond that, the humans should be whipped into line. No one in this world is worth protecting anymore. Hel couldn’t help believe her mother as a small impressionable child. She was indoctrinated at a tender age where parents are superheroes and the rest of the world is always wrong. Who could blame her?

Hel, by nature, is assertive and confident. She doesn’t appreciate others opinions more so than her own, and often makes daring and risky choices just for the thrill of it. She loves a challenge and can’t help but want to solve them, regardless of consequence. However, she does have a compassionate side and is fiercely loyal. She is charismatic and charming, but has an edge of darkness in her personality that is altogether unsettling.

Growing up in a militia like environment, Hel trained to kill vampires and humans alike with no mercy. Yet, her stomach always turned when she saw the bloodshed—but not with disgust, with hunger. Having never met her father, she couldn’t understand her cravings and hated herself for them. Even when her fangs had fully came in at 18, Hel refused to believe in what she clearly was. She continues to delude herself to this day. Whether that would change her outlook on life remains to be seen, but is unlikely.

Once she turned 20, Hel was put in charge of her own squadron with a team of five other werewolves. She is a capable leader, but takes more risks than Marzanna cares to see. Instead of opting for weapons of any kind, Hel uses her own physical capabilities to take out her targets—it’s just more her style.

Just got around to reading this and I really dig the concept! I'd like to join if I can :)

An idea for a member of the Hunter's Society came to mind: could there be a character who is secretly a werewolf but due to being mistreated by the supernatural during his youth, began to resent vampires and werwolves and resorted to living the rest of his days as a human? Perhaps the Hunter's Society was his only place of solace and so he has no intention of betraying them, being a scandalous wolf who 'imprinted' onto the humans. Whether or not that idea's acceptable, I'd like to play a character from the Society's perspective.

Name: Magdalena Amagitor

Age: 200 [looks 40]

Gender: Female

Race: Vampire

Appearance:
Image
Special abilities:
= Shapeshifting
Unlike other vampires, Magdalena isn't limited to one or two forms. Being of a peculiar bloodline, Amagitor is capable of transforming into a massive variety of animals including foxes, snakes, cats, crows, frogs, and naturally bats, of which the fruit bat is her favorite.
= Alchemy
Being an older vampire, Magdalena has accumulated immense knowledge regarding the brewing of potions and runs a profitable business selling items ranging from love potions to cleaning products. Her current project involves the creation of synthetic blood, consumable by vampires and hybrids alike.
= Heightened Senses
Not including the abilities granted by her various animal forms, Magdalena has excellent vision and hearing.

Weaknesses:
= Direct Sunlight
When exposed to sunlight for long periods of time, Magdalena breaks out in rashes, though her bloodline isn't pure enough for her to disintegrate entirely. However, she still tries to avoid walking outside during the day.
= Garlic, Silver, Holy water
Magdalena has a pretty bad garlic allergy, though she probably won't die from being near it. Silver and holy water on the other hand can be excrutiating painful upon contact; Mag is especially adverse to holy water, which can cause severe damage to the skin and eyes.

Background:
Being an Amagitor, Magdalena is considered somewhat of a bumpkin in vampiric society. However, despite prejudice against her bloodline, Mag has built a successful career based on the sale of magical items and runs a potion shop in the center of town. Thanks to the help of hired hands and Amigator's nocturnal nature, the pharmacy, Maggie's Meds, is open 24/7.

Personally, Mag has no qualms with the other races; after all, that'd be bad for business. Having no personal attachment to the old vampire families, she will often be at odds with fancier sanguines, preferring to mingle with what she calls the 'normies' of Sanctuary City, no matter how peculiar their backgrounds actually might be.

Overall, Mag is a pretty harmless woman, though her offbeat personality and animalistic tendencies have gotten her in trouble with the authorities. However, on the odd day where she does get fined for her behavior, she is never truly punished, but rather admonished by local police, as her amiable nature disarms even the toughest of enforcers.

Name: Timofey Blanc

Age: 19

Gender: Male

Race: Werewolf (unknown to most, he mingles with humans)

Appearance: Timofey has platinum blond hair loosely falling to his shoulders and hazel-grey eyes. He wears black leather gloves at all times to avoid breaking out when handling wolf-threatening equipment. His wolf form is an arctic wolf with tall legs and soft fur.
Image
Special abilities:

Enhanced stamina and regeneration - conventional weapons cannot kill him, meaning he is seen by his peers as a boy with crazy endurance, able to survive multiple wounds and mass amounts of blood loss only to still be able to keep as active as he was before. Due to this, he has a high pain tolerance. His wounds don’t heal instantly, but at half the speed of the average human’s.

Speed and agility - despite his regeneration skills, he hardly lets himself get hurt or touched without permission, especially by humans as he can easily dodge close-combat attacks. Fast on his feet and very in tune with his own lean, angular body, he is the fastest runner in the Hunter’s Society. Amongst the werewolf community, his bloodline of Blanc wolves were especially recognised and famous for their speed and agility to escape tight situations.

Dexterity - give Timofey a new weapon, and he can quickly learn how to wield it. He’s skilled at using tools and playing games that require precise aim and hand-eye coordination.

Weaknesses:

Silver and anti-werewolf weaponry - silver bullets are especially lethal. If he was hit by an anti-werwolf gun the shock would turn him into a wolf. He wears a bullet proof vest when outside to ease his paranoia of being mortally wounded.

Shifting into his wolf form - as he rarely ever practises his physical werwolf abilities, he is much less dangerous and far more like a helpless, life-size cuddly plush toy were he to become a wolf. The only skill as a wolf that has stuck by him is his speediness and agility to slink about. He is so unused to biting people anymore that his jaw is still and weak; a toddler could stick their fingers in his muzzle and wouldn’t complain from his sharp teeth gently holding their hand.

Mental stress - if someone happened to discover and mention his childhood or his past before he became a Hunter guard, it would stimulate horrid memories that would stifle his fighting ability, opting for flight rather than fight when confronted by his darker past. This is a weapon that stuns him stronger than any wolf taser.

Background:

Although unknown to humans, the Blanc name is very familiar to both vampires and werwolves, seen these days as a bloodline of wolves that has recently died out. Timofey is the sole yet unknown survivor of his entire family’s tragedy. Many human families today have the surname ‘Blanc’, unrelated to these wolves, making his transitioning into human life easier. Perhaps his white hair would raise alarm bells to some knowing supernaturals, but talking back to a Hunter is seen as a threat as thus he has yet to be confronted about being a Blanc.

When vampires kept wolves as pets, Blanc wolves were especially prized. They were tall, lean, elegant and graceful arctic wolves, with pure white fur which appealed to the romantic vampire. Due to their regal aesthetic, they were traded, bought and forcefully bred amongst themselves as highly valuable investments, used as a decoration for the house and paraded around like dolls. As they were also masters of speed, they were also bought to be abused as ‘racing dogs’ and game hunters. As Blancs are one of the weaker wolf groups in terms of physical strength, vampires preferred them as they were easier to discipline into meek behaviour. Many Blancs came to love their vampire masters, as they were groomed lovingly and fed well to retain their beauty.

Wolf keeping grew out of fashion, but there was still an underground market for purchasing Blancs. As they became tamed into submission over decades, Blancs started to believe it was their purpose to serve and be loved by vampires. Blancs preferred their wolf forms and stopped thinking about shifting into a human as vampires told them they were far prettier and better off displaying their lush coats.

But Timofey’s parents were not loved. Bought by a family of vampires solely keen on profiting from making coats out of their fur, the Moreau family abused their dungeons of arctic wolves they held hostage rather than treated as any companion. Timofey was the spawn forced into existence by the Moreaus’ favourite, ‘most attractive’ wolves in hopes they could sell his pretty face for a high designer price. But one day, the household decided to kill all of their wolves to create rare coats and start afresh for a completely new business. Timofey was but a tiny pup then, and so his parents found a way to smuggle him into the gutters of the estate in hopes that he could crawl his way out.

Timofey heard the blood-curdling howls and whimpers of his family as he crawled his way out through the drain pipes. He would never see or hear of them again. This marked the day he detested supernaturals and his wolf form. He shifted into a human and never wanted to be seen as a wolf again. After much wandering, he fell into the hands of the Hunter’s Society. Seeing his potential, they gave him a job as a trainee in exchange for free boarding. Timofey is currently a new, low ranking guard. Being a confused teenager with a dark past, wounds still fresh as though they happened yesterday, he’s not too sure what feeling loved or loving something genuinely means yet.

A lone wolf-in-secret, Timofey can’t help but crave for a pack in which he can truly belong. For the time being, the closest thing he has to a pack is the Hunter’s Society, serving them wholeheartedly in fear of facing rejection again.

Yasss that was my plan once I saw your wolf being created as all white.

I just set it up so it is vaguely dramatic but I was going to ask you what type of conflict you wanted them to have. PM me if you want to have something more substantial, or I can just ad lib if you want.

Hope I’m not very late to the party

Name: Ben
Age: 40 years old
Gender: male
Race: human
Appearance: Ben stands little short of 1,8 meters, dresses in too large, old and torn clothes (which he prevents from falling off with numerous belts and twines) with as many pockets (normal and hidden) as possible; his head is covered with unkempt black hair going gray here and there; he gazes at the world with a pair of light blue eyes and a smile hidden behind a more or less kept grayish beard; his left arm is missing a hand- in its place there is a sturdy prostethic with a nasty silver blade covered with garlic extract and a clever mechanism that gives him access to several lockpicks hidden within its wooden structure, which Ben is able to operate with ease; aside from the blade, his pockets hide many items of similiar nature, helping him immensly in his 'line of work', as he likes to call it
Special abilities:
Element of surprise- Ben has spent years practicing the art of dirty tricks and surprise attacks, not to mention the nasty contraptions waiting for unsuspecting opponents in his pockets (while they change depending on the preparations he’s done, the items that never leave his posession are: mini magnesium bombs, a bottle of holy water refilled whenever he gets the chance and a tiny pistol with a surprisingly strong firepower, loaded with a single silver bullet)
Agility- Ben is able to pull off most of his plans thanks to his quick hands (or rather hand) and even quicker legs
Connections- it turns out that if you know a guy that knows a guy who knows a guy- and that first guy owes you a favor- suddenly you have a large amount of people ready to help you or give useful information whenever you ask
Weaknesses:
No muscles- while Ben excels at ambushes and dirty fights, he stands no chance in a straight-forward fight against any opponent that isn’t an anemic, a child, mortally wounded or an anemic mortally wounded child
Slum roots- Due to Ben living in the poor parts of the city, he doesn’t have access to places reserved for the people of middle nad higher classes; while that usually doesn’t pose any problem in Ben’s everyday life, it can prove to be a tough obstacle to overcome while pursuing a target with a noble status
Background: If you live in the slums of the Sanctuary City, you’ve probably heard of Ben. There’s even a large possibility you’ve met him- after all, few things happen in the city that he doesn’t know of, and he’s always willing to share the information in exchange for a small favour. Not to mention he’s always glad to share a drink with anyone willing to share an interesting story. If you’re part of the Sanctuary’s criminal underworld, you’ve probably heard of Ben’s Friend, too. The one everyone goes to to dispose of their 'problems'. Though the Friend is picky when it comes to accepting requests and always wants a hefty sum or a rare item for his services, he never complains at lack of offers. That’s because he always "takes care" of the targets he’s taken, and always makes it look like an unfortunate accident. Of course, no one except for Ben has ever met him face to face. That’s what Ben’s for. He exchanges information between the Friend and his clients and brings him the bounties. In exchange for that, he has a nice, cozy place to live (though no one exactly knows where), something to eat and drink, and is under Friend’s protection. Because of the shroud of mystery surrounding the Friend there are lots of theories about who he is, what he’s doing with the bounties or if he has some kind of a secret agenda (the most popular one being that he’s some kind of an elder vampire tired of living in an old castle wanting to get some thrill in his long life). Someone had once even theorised, that Ben and his Friend are one and the same person- he’s been ridiculed mercilessly (and had a fatal accident a week later, which of course had nothing to do with said theory). How could good ol’ Ben be a cold-blooded henchman? That’s ridiculous! He wouldn’t hurt a fly!
