A job well done, you've captured most of what I pictured. :) Thanks quite a lot Sam.

I am illusion, until you acknowledge me into your reality, for what you perceive makes me who I am, this physical self of mine a mere description, of a possibility that can and can't be. A remnant of a memory, a shadow forgotten in the presence of the sun, a moment in time that has long since passed.

Name: Doctor Billiam Beleraphon, PhD.

Age: 37 (A lie; he's actually younger.)

Gender: Male

Race: Intrinsically human, yet, ironically, uncharacteristically human.

Appearance: A tall, dapper fellow who always wears a surgeon’s mask around his neck, despite his outfit, because you never know…Wears a black patch over his right eye due to an accident involving a scalpel during his days at University. The strap of which is overlapped by the reflector band around his forehead (which he also wears incessantly) and cuts diagonally across his matted brown hair. The hair, itself, is speckled with strands of gray, which he doesn’t mind; he believes it serves to remind others of how stressful his profession is. He wears a monocle over his left eye as a form of asymmetrical balance. He typically wears a suit with an irritating (as in skin irritation) woolen jacket and a red rose in the front pocket, which clashes violently with the rest of his appearance. Often seen wearing tap shoes and has been known to spontaneously tap dance while performing surgery. Will, on occasion, sport a top hat with the top open because he “like[s] to feel the breeze as [he] walk[s].”

Aims: very accurately with his scalpel during both combat and surgery. He aspires to be the greatest medical practitioner in all of existence, through all of infinity.

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral, no question.

Occupation/Status: Private practice doctor operating from his own office and duly performs his duties in the appropriate scenarios. While dashingly eccentric, Billiam can be a wit and a charmer, though unduly during inappropriate scenarios.

Personality: Personally, that’s very personal information.

Weapons/equipment: An unruly scalpel, possibly possessed.

Powers/magic: If he has any powers, it would have to contribute to his miraculous medical prowess in conflict with his…existence.

A mysterious dark being may emit from the blade of his scalpel. Billiam has spent years trying to tame this entity; and his is succeeding. It is unknown whether this ghastly beast was formed from Beleraphon's own imaginings or if the blade is truly enchanted. The creature is certainly formidable, but it can only extend a certain distance from the blade, and can never truly detach itself.

History: As a mere lad, his mother passed of a disease (which he prefers to keep anonymous). He was helpless as there was nothing he could do to aid her. Some years later, his father was mortally wounded. Despite Billiam's effort to stitch his father's face back together, his father would not survive. Billiam then devoted his life to mastering all forms of medical prowess so that no one would ever pass under his care.

He has made a reputation for himself, seemingly performing miraculous healings. He is highly sought after for his talents. Unsatisfied with settling into a local shop, he became a wandering medic and travels about the land aimlessly.

’Previous life’ History: Attended a university (which he refuses to name) at the age of twenty to learn the ways of the doctorate and stayed on until he was thirty. His life before then was obscure and he refuses to discuss it as he considers it his “imperfect period;” the time before he was a contributing member of society. Since his graduation, he has opened a private practice in the slums of London, preferring the quiet, tranquil atmosphere provided by the South Londoners to the upstart, noisy, rich and flaunty North Londoners.

Theme song: Anything to which he can tap.


While his appearance is mostly a copypasta, I've added some additional lines.

I feel kinda stuck when it comes to controlling the forms for Alexis but I think I'll pull through somewhat. Also Doctress, I'll be doing some massive updates around my RPs this weekend and my Cs should comes close to completion by then. Hope I'm not making this difficult for you. :O

Postby darkshark » Tue Jun 29, 2010 9:25 pm

Doc, I hope you don't mind, but I'm reposting here due to impatience and just in case you didn't get it.

Name: Adan Brighteyes

Age: 28

Gender: Male

Race: Half human, half "mythic being"

Appearance: Adan is a big guy, befitting of his personality. He is 6'2", and around 210 pounds of pure muscle. He generally wears cooler colors, on the dark side of the spectrum, greens and beiges towards blacks and browns, with a few splashes of brighter colors, light blues, etc. When he's at rest, he wears a robe of some sort, with the above colors. It's really more of a long cape, however, which he can blast open and discard quickly if need be. The main reason for it is hiding his impressive figure. Underneath it, he wears what seem to be tightly wrapped strips of cloth. He has light brown hair, and a decently attractive face, but nothing incredibly special. However, his most striking feature are his eyes. Completely natural since birth, they are near-indescribable. A light green base, surrounded by a hazel ring, with blue and honey streaks running through the two main parts, they are breathtakingly beautiful. Thus, his name. He has a healthy color on his skin even in the winter, so it's safe to assume he is an ethnic minority.

Aims: Fighting the Imperium.

Alignment: One could say Chaotic Good with Neutral tendencies.

Occupation/Status: He is an orphan. As far as occupation goes, he "speaks for the trees," as they say.

Personality: In a word: Big. He's lived alone pretty much his whole life, and he's done a pretty good job of it. He's kind to strangers and friends alike, even when they don't deserve it. However, he's not naive (there's a reason he left), but he's willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. He's a pretty good judge of character, and he can read emotions incredibly well, having learned from living in the wild that the small things are sometimes the most important. He's what we nowadays would call "green," to a certain extent. He lives off the land, so he can't be too wildlife-friendly, but he knows the limits. He remembers a time when there were trees and grass in Myriat, so the only people he won't even give a first chance to are Imperiums.

Weapons/equipment: A 3-foot long metal staff, with small, but dense weights on either end. It's actually made up of two staffs, one inside the other. It can be used as is, for a close range weapon, but can also slide out and lock itself, to double its length, and you can remove the inner half completely. When he does this, the weight on the inner, skinnier half forms a blade, which he then uses in tandem with the still-weighted other half.

Powers/magic: Adan can transform into three different forms. Slightly larger than the average human, he divides them, quite simply, into Air, Land, and Sea. They're pretty much exactly what they say on the box. They're each an amalgam of the most powerful, fastest, or most useful animals of their respective terrains. However, there are a few limitations. If while in Land or Air, he is forced into deep water, or if in Sea he is forced on land for extended periods of time, he will revert back to human. Of course, Land can go through shallow water, Air can walk on land, etc, etc. And if he is forced to go back this way, he won't be able to transform into any forms until he is rested again.

Air: Can reach the speed of a peregrine falcon, though with the proportional strength of an African Crowned Eagle, and the endurance of a bar-tailed godwit (can fly 7000 miles without stopping). Looks like an eagle combined with a human. It's got mainly green plumage,with red and brown highlights, wicked talons, and a sharp, pointed beak.

Land: Strength of an elephant, with the speed of a cheetah, but the endurance of an bear (or whatever land animal has good endurance). A very large humanoid, with thick, hard to penetrate leather skin, a bearish snout, teeth, and claws. Has small tusks and and a rhino-style horn.

Sea: Possibly the most fear-inducing of the three, has the teeth and bite power of a Great White, the speed of a mako, and the camoflauge abilities of an octopus. Still humanoid, but as streamlined as possible, it's got fins on its arms, razor sharp and able to be used as weapons, along with sharp points on the ends of its fingers. It is mildly amphibious, in that it can leap out of the water without weakening.

Also, his staff, (see above for description and below for history) given to him by his father has the ability to turn the weights into blades, and is strong enough to break concrete and dent steel.

History: Adan's history is similiar to his real life in the beginning, but with a few key differences. He was still born in the slums of the city (but really, who wasn't?), but instead of parents that didn't care, he had parents that went the opposite way. His father would beat him early, and often. His mom would take over when his dad got tired. Things went this way until Adan was about 10. Then, his powers developed. A weak Land form emerged, and he mauled his father. His mother looked on in horror, and she ran away when he turned towards her. He ran as well, but away from the city. He made it to the forest, where he collapsed out of exhaustion. He awoke a naked human, facing some sort of apparition. A great beast, seemingly combining a bull, a buck, and a man stood before him. He claimed to be a spirit of the forest, and (SHOCKING TWIST) his father. When Adan tried to touch his hand, it went through what was just a spirit. But as he passed through it, he felt stronger, safer, and at home. On the "other side," there was what has now become his favored weapon. Since then, he has lived in the wild outskirts of Myriat, only popping into the city for supplies of some sort, or to check on the parks in the city. So imagine his dismay when he slowly started seeing his parks paved over for more industrialization, until eventually they were gone. Filled with a slowly rising rage, he has since made it his mission to take out the Imperium, and regrow the parks.

’Previous life’ History: Adan, actually Ivan, was born an orphan, as far as he's concerned. He knows how the process works, but his parents were anything but. He was originally born in the slums of real world Chicago. His parents named him Ivan, so, with the last name of Dhalise, they weren't exactly setting him up for glory. Even when he was very little, he knew his parents were not going to be what he needed. He didn't feel happy, safe, or any of the things one should feel around their parents. However, when he was still a toddler, he went on an outing with his parents, in an attempt to make them feel like they were doing their job. They went to a city park at the edge of the forest, for a picnic consisting of sandwiches and cookies (his mom forgot to make them), and for the tyke, milk (Dad forgot to pack it), and beer for the adults (the one thing they remembered). So, when they had gotten good and wasted, Ivan wandered off deep into the cover of the trees. Even here, where he had never been, where it was dark and unknown, he felt more at home than with his parents. Unfortunately for him, his parents finally realized their only child was missing, and he was quickly found. Now a young man disheartened with his life, he was approached by the Stranger with visions of Ivan taking his own life by taking a step too far on the train platform. Slowly falling into a spiral of despair, when he offered a way out, Ivan leapt at the chance.

Postby Lucifers_Angel » Wed Jun 30, 2010 12:10 am

I'm kinda new to this site and I want to join the RP if its still open, anways here is my character
*************************************************************************
Name: Tempest
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Race: Half human/ half elf

Apperance: Tempest has jet black hair that reaches her mid-black with a single silver streak. Crystal blue eyes that seem to glow brightly at night. She has tanned brown skin that is flawless except for the scar on her back that starts from her shoulder and extends to her waist, diagonally. Tempest is "5'6" and has a toned body, with curves in all the right places. She has a crescent moon shaped birthmark on her right shoulder and she does have elf ears. She wears silver bangles on both of her wrists and arms.

Tempest wears a black cami is form fitting yet delicate with its black lace trimming and gathered satin, with adjustable straps for her convience. She wears a black skirt that stops two inches above her knees, the skirt has a three row super soft elastic waist, three layers of lace trim. The skirt has three panels, the two velvet panels together measure 11", then the bottom lace layer measures an additional 7". The total length of the skirt is 18". Wears a long black cloak over clothes and lacy boots with three inch heels.

Aim: - To survive
- Against Imperium

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Occupation/Status: Orphan and Thief

Personality: Tempest is a cold person, who speaks her mind and bluntly speaks out the truth with no regards on how it will affect other people. Tempest is loyal and protective of the few people she trusts and though it may not seems like it, she does have a soft side.

Weapons/ Equipment: Two daggers strapped on both her thighs and blades in the heels of her boots.
Powers/magic: Illusion (Power) - Tempest has the power to project images from her mind of whatever she wants into the heads of others. She can always show people certain images of her past or see the past of others.

Empathy (Natural Ability) - Tempest has the ability to feel and alter the emotions of another person, though she refraims from using that ability because she can also feel pain and other negtaive things that other people feel, as well.

Heighten Senses (Natural Ability) - She has better use of her five sense, especially sight and hearing. Her best sense is of her sight and she does know how to use a bow and arrow but doesn't do so often, considering she wants to give her opponent a fair chance if she chooses too.

Earth Manipulation (Power) - Tempest does not yet know she has this ability. Since Tempest is part elf, she can often 'link' with the Earth around her. She can control various forms of plant life and can also cause the ground to split apart. Tempest has a natural ability to know what type of plants and herbs are lethal and helpful, and she can use that to her advantage.


History: Tempest grew up in an orphange and her earliest memory was of a burning building, she doesn't have any living family members. Tempest has a great fear of fire. Tempest was adopted at the age of 9, by a man who owed a brothel. Tempest worked in the brothel for 5 years until she eventually ran away and became a street kid. She got the scar on her back when she was working at the brothel and disobeyed one of her masters, as 'punishment' her adoptive 'father' lashed a whip across her back, causing the scar.

Tempest taught herself how to fight and steal, so she could survive. Tempest was 16, when she first discovered her powers. She was trapped in an alley and two men were adavancing on her when she focused on the men getting attacked by wild dogs. Tempest soon the men cry out in pain as their minds recieved her illusion, Tempest has since then mastered her ability.

Tempest discovered her empathy ability one day when she had just finished stealing froma nearby market. She was walking by a group of teenagers when she was suddenly hit with a strong sense of rage and frustration. Tempest felt sick and quickly leaned against a nearby building and focused on calming down. She closed her eyes and shut out the world around her, focusing solely on herself. The sensation of rage and frustration soon left and Tempest looked at the teenagers only to see them looking more relaxed than they had been before. Tempest since then has learned to to control and/or block out emotions from others so she doesn't have to experience anything like that again.

’Previous life’ History: Tempest, or who was once known as Clarisse Jordan, grew up in an abusive home. Her father had died when she was a young age and her mother remarried. Her step father turned out to be a descendant from Satan himself, because he beat Clarisse just because he could and her mother did nothing to stop it. Clarisse made good grades in school, but never spoke up for herself and because of that she had no friends. Clarisse was a terribly shy girl, who was often picked on and bullied. Clarisse was an only child and wished for nothing more than to be accepted into society.

When Clarisse turned 19 she moved out and never once visited her parents. Clarisse attented a University studying in Literature in hopes of becoming a writer. Clarisse was approached by the stranger one day and he promised her a new life where she would be strong and able to take care of herself. Clarisse hesitantly accepted the Stranger's offer knowing that she had nothing to live for in that life and opening to be someone amazing in the next.

Postby Doctress Who » Thu Jul 01, 2010 9:18 am

@Lucifers_Angel: Welcome to the forums. It’s always good to see fresh faces around here. Thanks for submitting your CS, you should be able to see my comments on it below.

@Everyone:
Thanks for having patience with me guys. Sorry this took so long. Monday and Tuesday were a bit hectic, and Wednesday…I don’t know what happened to Wednesday, I got stuck into reading the CS’s, but only got around to posting this today.


On the upside, just look how organised I am once I do get things done, eh? Let me know if you can’t see your name on the list below, but I think I’ve covered everyone on that list somewhere.

CS List wrote:CS STATUS LIST

Accepted List
Already accepted:
Sam4books
Kougaiji+Sesshomaru
Happy Little Gekko – (thanks for adding the history section)

Now added to the list:
Mastermind001: Thanks for the added details. Accepted.
(By the way, your first link just redirects me to google, might need to fix that)

MQuinny1234: Really good…using the 4 elements is kinda stretching the idea of having only ‘two powers’, but I’ll give it to you.
When you say the ruby ‘amplifies his powers’, can you explain that a little more? How does it amplify his power/to what extent?
Also, the Stranger did say that if you die in Myriat, you loose…although he’s a walking skeleton, so he’s not technically dead, right? And he can still be killed? Just checking on that.
Other than, that, no real issues so it’s accepted.

Obs: A Mer? Love it, very different and will certainly add some more variety to this RP. Accepted.

Nelo Angelo: Ooh lovely, a destroyer
>:D Accepted.

Tragedy_and_Comedy: Very good on both histories. I’m liking all the uncanny similarities. Accepted.

NeoWarrior7: I like him. I’m curious to know what his old name was.
Lol at ‘card carrying’ member of the Imperium. Accepted.

darkshark: Yeah, sorry about the wait. As you can see, I had a backlog of CS’s that needed reviewing, so sorry for not getting back to you immediately.
Looks good, you have in effect three different powers there, but we’ve discussed it, and I’m fine with it, so long as it isn’t abused. Accepted.

Lucifers_Angel: Love it, fantastic for a first CS on here. One little thing:
She can always show people certain images of her past or see the past of others.
I’m a little concerned by what you mean by this. Does this mean she would be able to see her real past/other people’s real pasts? Or is this for the Myriat world only?
Other than that, it’s accepted.

________________________________________________________________________________________________


Pending List
Incomplete/I have some queries about the following:

Blood Lord: That is a heck of a lot of knives. Now, all we need is a giant magnet…
And
his former Master who died in a tragic accident involving a street vendor, several clowns, at least one mime, and a bag of pistachios.
After reading this I’m now expecting Lemony Snicket to show up. Or at least a bag of pistachios.
stolen from the grave of a well known, and well loved Lord of Exalia
Hah…I see what you did there. [Off topic: Is that going to be appearing in Lord Vaco’s CS?]
And yeah I did say two magical artefacts maximum, but since they’re so interesting I’ll allow it. Just fill in the two ‘History’ sections and then you’ll be accepted.
Oh and the theme song is genius. I was half-expecting Axel F.

Mathias: Love him, but a few things:
- He has no real powers and only one weapon? Are you sure you don’t want to add anything to that? It doesn’t matter so much if you don’t, it just means that you are going to be a little underpowered…it would make things more…challenging for you. (Unless that was your intention?)
- Your History. Now whilst I encourage having similarities between the Past life and the current life, I would also like to see some significant differences (more than just geographically). It kind of takes the fun out of it if they’re both the same – after all, the Stranger’s bargain was that he would take away their past life and all their memories in exchange for this one…kind of defeats the point if they’re both the same, doesn’t it?
Also:
His life before then was obscure and he refuses to discuss it as he considers it his “imperfect period;”
Care to expand? You can PM me history details if you wish your character to remain mysterious, but as the GM I would like to know anything your character might be holding back.
Remember, for this RP I was looking for quite a detailed and interesting History. Four lines isn’t exactly the level of detail I was expecting. If you can, please make it more detailed, unless you want nothing eventful to happen – a boring History means a boring plotline for your character in the future. The more interesting and detailed your History, the more interesting this RP is going to be for you later on…

Waiting for a response/Still pending:
Archrival

Musicmac: Interesting so far. Looking forward to seeing more detail in the CS soon/when you can.
Hmm, and another thing, your ‘past life history’…everyone is supposed to be from modern day Earth (i.e. the Earth we all know). But I’ll see what your completed CS is like, and discuss it with you if need be.


-wipes sweat from brow- phew.
Let me know if I’ve missed anyone out, but I think that covers everyone who has submitted a CS so far.
Still waiting on a CS from Ro Wong, not sure about anyone else.

Hiryu: Doc's bag is a portal. She's actually from another dimension and when she jumped into it, she ended up at a desk with a browser open on this site. That's how she found it.

Billiam doesn't ask for much. He was quite satisfied with his previous life; it turned out exactly how he wanted. He's also very resourceful. And he's a doctor, who would allow harm to befall him?

@Music: Oh, an unexpected hug. -hugs back-

@NeoWarrior: I think he's turning into one of my favourite characters too. It'll be interesting to see him in the RP. I love the quirk with the cards...hmm, I smell room for a little plot development there...

@Mathias:
Oh, in a Dystopia like Myriat, I'm quite sure they'll be no mercy, even for doctors. There's no knowing what might be lurking in the shadows...

And I'm just saying, without a good History, you're going to be missing out. I need something concrete I can work with. If there's nothing to work on...without giving too much away, let's just say it's going to be difficult for your character to work well in the RP.
Your character needs something for motivation. Otherwise, your character will be just left shrugging his shoulders and going 'oh well'. Giving a good History adds depth to your character, makes them seem more human, three-dimensional and interesting. It's all very well saying everything was fine...but being perfect is boring. That, together with the fact that you haven't really said much about his personality, makes Billiam sound a bit flat, and despite being eccentric, it actually makes him rather dull. Every good story has a conflict, a struggle, no matter what form that may take. A character has goals they wish to aspire to, past mistakes they wish to forget, memories they'll cherish, memories they wished never happened, met people or had events in their life that have changed them, affected them and the way they see the world.

Are you sure there's nothing you could add to make the doctor more believable and more engaging? He does need to have a 'tragic, dark and troubled past', but it would be good if there was something that made him more dynamic, more complex. Doesn't even need to be anything major, it could be just small things - little good and/or bad things that have happened in his life that make him what he is today. No one's life is completely perfect - even in real life, life-changing events still happen.

Don't mean to rant about it, I just want this RP to be a good and enjoyable experience for you.

Lol, I was playing devil's advocate. I'll cook something up in the near future.

Tenpest can only see a person's Myriat world past and she can only show her own Myriat world past. Sorry, for the confusion

@Lucifers_Angel: Oh, that's absolutely fine then. No worries.

@Math: Damn you, wish you wouldn't do that here. I wouldn't have fallen for that if that had been in Spam.
And that's cool.

hmm...the whole death thing is a good point, maybe I've overpowered him...well, the amulet just focuses his power and let's him control it better, it doesn't actually make him more powerful. As for the death thing....I'll get back to you on that.

Sweet. Yeesh, sorry about the pressure. But I'm glad to be a part of this. Let's get to it.

Nah. I understand what it's like when you're waiting for something. I've been known to put pressure on people myself at times.

Right, now I'm just waiting on a few CS's I think. I also need to add a few more bits and pieces myself, and possibly draw up a few Imperium CS's (and possibly others, depending on whether there's any other gaps that need filling). On top of that I've got other RP commitments, and real life commitments.

I'm going to be ambitious here and say that the IC will be up by Monday. If not, (and it turns out I'm busier than expected), then at least by the end of that week.
Hope that's ok with everyone.

yeah....I'll probably be gone on Monday, holidays and stuff. For over a week I'd say.
