Comet Saga

Races:

Oridians: The current ruling populace of the colony Terra. They are a highly technologically advanced people, being able to run the atmosphere as well as participate in intergalactic trade. They single-handedly saved Terra from its destruction, and as such are viewed by all the natives with at least forced respect. Their bodies are tall and slender, and they are feline in nature. They are great builders and leaders, but if you need brute strength, do not come to them. Weapon-wise, their style would be gunplay. They are almost entirely magically inept as their beliefs have faded in the “old arts.” Though their instinct drives can spawn a sort of technologically created magical force.

Terrans: The oldest people on Terra, they are ruled by the changes and signs of nature, and with the magic that instinctively flows through them; they can command it with innate skill. They are shorter than Oridians, but generally just as slender. However, these people have honed their bodies since use into tools, and are known as deadly hand to hand fighters, as well as swordsman and bowmen.

Animus: The Animus people are nomads of the Terran world, known as Stonefeet by the Terrans. They are giants of men, averaging seven and a half feet tall. They are known to react violently when violence is not at all necessary. They have a deep respect for their elders and a spiritual connection with all of those before them. This leads them to having a natural ability in shamanic powers. Allowing their elders to lead them into battle and fight with them for an increased strength and ability.

Solaris: Former rulers of the planet terra. Worshippers of the God of the Sun. Their “Festival of the Sun” brought the majority of their people on a pilgrimage to the homeland, which happened to be their demise as the Comet struck their homeland destroying everyone who lived there in a matter of moments. (Not available to the general populace, to play as this race a PM must be sent to both Me and Xeios, and approved by both of us.)

Instinct Drive: Invented by Scott Semper, Instinct Drives are one of the major issues on the colony today. An Instinct Drive is a microcomputer chip that is installed into the mind of anyone. It is the reason why melee weapons have stood their ground against guns. The Instinct Drive automatically activates when adrenaline is pumped in the body, and takes over the instinct. It analyzes the surroundings of the person and commands the brain to do the most effective move, as long as it is within the person’s capacity to do so. There are different grades of the drives, and factors that decide this are, for example, reaction time, success rate, and synchronization with the brain.

All Oridians are outfitted with at least C-rank Drives to make up for their physical incompetence.

Terrans take very well to the Drives, despite its contradictory nature to their naturalistic nature, average being A-rank Drives.


Animus’ natural instincts are equivalent to a rank B Instinct Drive. They do not use normally use them.

It has been said that because of an anomaly in the brain of all Solaris, they synchronize so well with their drives they generally achieve X-rank Drives, making them deadly efficient warriors. Shame there’s only a tad left.

Background of Terra:

In the Oridian year 3477, astrologists reported sighting a large comet heading towards a neighboring planet. An event they focused on for quite a large amount of time. Predicting the exact location and effects this collision would have on the planet. In the year 3478, sixteen months after they reported the sighting of the comet, the collision occurred. Knocking the planet called Terra off of its orbit and sending it hurtling towards Orid. The Oridians, knowing the great amount of resources available on this planet took it into their hands to save them from sure destruction. Sending fleets of spacecraft to clean Terra’s atmosphere and create an artificial sky and sun. They also pulled the planet to their own orbit, making it an official “moon” of Orid. After stabilizing the planet, they were quick to colonize it and reap from it bountiful resources.


So yeah, if you want in on this, join. This RP's story will be kept a secret from you now. But what you may know is that this RP will take place 150-odd years after the initial colonization.

Just noticed something that was missingin Cairoi's post, the actual order of ranking in Instinct Drives.

Instinct Drive Ranking:
(from highest to lowest)

X -- Anomolic at best, usually a defect gone extremely well in the rank "B" and "A" Instinct Drives. Always chooses the most efficient path. The most reactive instinct drive, bringing the most accurate results as quickly as possible. A perfect judge of distance and accuracy, and is sometimes known to interfere with more inferior instinct drives in the area.

A -- Military grade Instinct Drives. The quality of the chip more frequently creates a connection with the brain at an "A" grade and though it doesn't have nearly as high a rate as a rank "B" chip to enter rank "X" it is the most reliable chip to put into a soldier's head as it has the least amount of chance to be anything but a rank "A". The quality of this chip is much better than the "B" rank and reacts extremely quickly. A very good judge of almost everything a soldier needs, and quite often leads to regulating sleep. A soldier with this chip in their brain can stay fully alert for up to 18 hours a day if necessary. Also, a person is awoken to action much faster because of the quick pace battles have taken on in the most recent years.

B -- Just below military grade, and the highest rank available for purchase to civilians. Ideal for criminals and pilots.

C -- The lowest grade chip possible. Available for a low price to the general public so they may get through their daily lives without too much accidental harm. Though they are known to let their owners stub their toes or get into car accidents every now and again, they are very useful to the Oridian race and an Oridian without a chip is useless to their society. Creates a good judgement through combat situations, allows for basic "Fight or Flight" methods of the body to occur.




And now, My CHARACTER SHEET! Woo!

Name: Sethis Lunarscape
Race: Solaris
Instinct Drive: Yesindeedy
Age: True age unknown, he claims he is twenty.
Sex: Male
Appearance: Sethis stands tall at 6'3". He wears a luminescant white armor with golden trim. His black hair is spiked and swept backwars. It comes to a pointed Widow's Peak on his forehead and pointed sideburns. His shimmering, elegant blue eyes tell him apart from most other races. He has a fair amount of muscle to his body, which aids him in his life. He appears to be 18 he is so young.
History: Long ago, when the Solaris were the prime peoples of the world, Sethis' ancestor, Virinaldi, renounced the sun, and left the world created for him by the Sun-Worshippers. A curse was placed on his family and all those who would share his blood until the end of time, that so long as the sun stands in the sky misfortune would find him and his bloodline at every turn. This curse was very true, his family had faced many hardships, pursuit by other Solaris, discrimination from other races. Finding it impossible to live in the daylight, they lived through the moon. The Collision of the Comet however, removed this curse, and allowed the Lunarscapes to walk unburdened by this curse. Sethis still suffers from discrimination by other races, but it is much more toned down from what his ancestors faced. Little is known about this man but he is very mentally and physically prepared for the tasks at hand.

This character has been approved by Xeios, but not yet Cairoi.

Name: Rei Pietra

Race: Half Animus, half Terran

Instinct Drive: No

Age: 19

Sex: Male

Appearance: Slightly under six feet. While not quite as dark as other Animus, his skin has a detectable Animus hue. His face is distinctively Terran, with slim features. The rest of his physique is very Animus. He has a shaved head, but when his hair is grown out, it is black.

History: Rei is the illegitimate son of an Animus male and a Terran maiden. His father would not acknowledge his existence, so his mother took him to raise herself. Knowing the Terrans would never accept her half-breed son, his mother raised him in secret, far from civilization. He grew up his entire life knowing that his father was not Terran, and when he was 17 his mother told him who his father really was. He set out to find his father, a quest that had long plagued. his dreams, and nightmares. Being raised in secret, he never got the opportunity to get implanted with an Instinct Drive. The mix of Animus and Terran blood in his system resulted in a unique blend of Terran and Animus magics, although neither were as strong as a pure blood's. He also gained some abilities not possessed by either race, such as the ability to encase himself in stone.

Name: Alexis (Alex) Leary

Race: Oridian

Instinct Drive: Yes

Age: 22

Sex: Female

Appearance: About 5'5", with very tanned skin; almost brown, but she's still caucasian in appearence. Very fit and thin. Her voice isn't as high pitched as most women, and as a tomboy, Alexis revels in it sometimes when she hears giggling schoolgirls run past her. She has jet black, almost shoulderlength hair which is very lightly wavy. A sleeve of black, tribal tattoos run down her left arm. She's always found in a black tank top and baggy, drab cargo pants with chains and belts on it. Her sneakers are black and grey, and pretty old and beat up. Sometimes she has black and tan gloves on her hands, often when she has to steal something. It's just her thing.

History: Alexis never really knew her parents. Her father divorced before she was born, and her mother died alone when Alexis was 14. Left without a future, she gave up all she had and lived her life on the streets as a thieving crook. In her off time, she gambles with the ther thieves in back alleys, or goofs off and listens to music on a digital media player she stole. Thanks to her B-Grade Instict Drive, she's able to elude the cops without much trouble, so her life is pretty easy so far.

EDIT: Name Change

(Yah...don't expect it to be much different from other charries)
Name: Bria Aidden

Race: Terran

Instinct Drive: (Erm...Not sure yet.)

Age: 18

Sex: Female

Appearance: Bria has long, poker-straight, black hair that falls to her mid-thigh. Her skin is usually pale. Once in a while it gains more pigment, but at times it can become abnormally pale. She stands at 5 feet even and weighs in at about 100lbs. She is quiet, but when she does come out of her shell to speak, her voice is usually very soft. In contrast, Bria's green eyes are full of life and speak much more than she ever could with words. Her attire consists of nothing but black. She wears a simple black long-sleeved turtleneck with a black spaghetti-strap dress that comes to her knees. She also wears black stockings and black boots that come a few inches below her knees.

History: Bria's past mostly consisted of illness. Since birth, she was sickly, but has managed to outgrow most of it. Her mother died while giving birth to her younger brother, who only lived a short time after his birth, leaving a very young Bria to be raised by her father. Driven by a fear of loosing the only child he had, Bria's father was extremely protective of her. Since she was sick most of the time, she was stuck inside and even when she was feeling better, her father still hesitated to let her out of his sight. Then, when she was fifteen years old, her father passed away. However, her people pulled through for her and cared for her through her illnesses. As a result of her past, Bria is a complete contradiction of herself. She is shy and naive, due to not being able to go out as much. However, because she is so shy, she always ended up listening more than speaking, thus, in other ways, gaining plenty of wisdom. However, despite her health difficulties, she is still a Terran, therefore, her magical skills are superb and though she has only needed to use it a few times, her natural hand to hand combat skills have yet to fail her.

Name: Avendia Mal'Toren
Race: Animus
Instinct Drive: Not needed
Age: 20
Sex: Female
Appearance: Standing about 7'3" with a long braid of silvery blonde hair, Avendia seems very typical of her race.

Uhhh, FX, I never officially Approved your character, it has too many flaws. I'll get into them here if you don't mind.

1 - your character is a "Prince." No. I thought you were using prince as a comparison to a Cheiftan's son, which would have no formal title. The Cheiftan would only be a cheifton of a small amount of Animus, thus there would be many of them if we even feel to include them into our storyline.

2 - You're


OK, new update here by me. I'm going to be inputting the stereotype for each race, skin color, average height, average muscle mass(low, medium, high, etc.), average eye colors, average hair colors, extraordinary features and such.

Average Hair Color: Brown, Black, Dark Red, Blonde
Average Eye Color: Brown, plus the others.
Average Height: 7'3" Male, 6'10" Female

Extraordinary Features: Massive beings with an insane amount of brute strength.

Average Eye Color: Yellow, Green, Blue.

Average Muscle Mass: Very Low, Low.
Extraordinary Features: Feline Eyes, slightly enlarged canines.
Miscellaneous: Very weak. Terrible instincts without their instinct drives. Very Dextrous, they are extraordinary Gunmen, mechanics, programmers etc. Basically they're good at stuff that requires dexterty. They have a type of magic created by Instinct Drives which allows their instincts to manfest and strike out offensively or defensively.
Homeland Geography: Nonexistant. The survivable area is encased in a titanium dome with a space port that stretches outside of the atmosphere. Essentially a large bustling Metropolis of intergalactic activity.

Xander, no. First of all, you'd be a bastard child if you were a mix of those two races, and wouldn't be at home anywhere. Second of all, no one can turn into stone in this RP. You can incase yourself in stone, but that's it.

Third of all, no royalty, everyone here is basic civilians with low to mediocre combat skill besides me and Xeios' characters. So, scrap the character. Make a new one or don't make one.

Elara, the Animus are horrible at stealth. Just so you know.

You've obviously never heard of the Aiel in the Wheel of Time series have you? It is ridiculous easy to hide in the desert, especially if you have desert colored clothing like I described. I mean, have you ever seen a desert? It's not all miles of sand... and you can even hide in that.

Never heard of Wheel of Time series, and now that you argue with it, you're right.

However, the majority of the RP will take place in an urban enviroment, so it might make hiding a bit hard on you.

True, hiding in cities will be harder (though not impossible). Height means nothing really, I have a friend that is about 7 feet tall and he's stealthy as all hell. Makes getting onto roofs very easy.

Hmm. Upon further checking of the races, perhaps Oridian wasn't a good choice for Alexis...
She's pretty tan. Like, really tan. She's strong and fast, and even without her Insitinct Drive, she's pretty nimble and dexterous and cunning.
Should I change her race, or would it be workable that the environment that she grew up in had an impact on her lifestyle and physique?
I don't wanna change her Personality or Apperance at all, you see...

Way to add more details on what our charries should look like after people have posted charries.

:Edit: K, tell me if all of this is okay...I really only edited Bria's hair color, was gonna stray from my usual black-haired charries, but merh. :p I did add in at the end of her history that she is still capable of what other Terran's are capable of. I didn't change the height because my original intentions were to have her "grow", both metaphorically and literally too (cuz you guys did mention that Terran's smaller, but I figured it wouldn't be TOO much). She's sick because I wanted her to have a reason be all quiet and naive in the beginning of the RP, rather than "just because" **shrugs** Just so I can have something to do with her pretty much, ya know? Besides, she was only uber sick as a child...so yeah...I dunno...just wanted something personal for her to overcome as well as whatever the story holds. Cuz yeah. So...lemme know if that works with your plans for the story...if not, then I guess I'll go and do a buttload of editing. >.o
