Occupation: Forest Ranger

Personality: A one line summary of how they act. Can be a sentence or just a brief list.
Abilities: Fast, Quick, Durable. Werewolf shifting and weaknesses. Wolf senses. Can teleport between trees if nobody's looking.
Situation: Forest ranger with a small house out of town. Has money in savings and an old Jeep

SECTION TWO: Appearance
Character Image: If you have one, feel free to replace this one with it.
Art Credit: If you are using images for your character they must be credited.
Height: 5'9
Body: Fair-skinned. Lean. Severe scars on her neck and left forearm. Multiple long scars on her back.
Face: Scars on her cheek, nose, and chin.
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown. Thick. Past shoulder length. Commonly worn in a big braid with a bow in it.
Clothes: Tends towards sensible, active clothing.
Other: In her hybrid form, Malina is far more muscular and grows to about 8'6" fully upright. She is covered in fur and has a wolflike head with wicked fangs. Her hands become much larger and gain sharp, tough claws. She gains a tail. Her fur is mainly black, with accents of white and dark grey - all healthy and even except where interrupted by scars on her neck, shoulders, face, and left arm.

SECTION THREE: Personality
Straightforward - Malina is frank and pragmatic. She calls things as she sees them. If she sees a need for it, she won't shy away from ruffling someone's feathers.
She's Been Around - Malina has the kind of calm and confidence that can only come from experience, and she's experienced a lot in 280 years. It always seems like she knows how to handle whatever kind of situation she runs into, no matter how crazy.
Slow to Trust - Malina tends to have cynical views on people she doesn't already know and like.

Quirk: If she has a couple drinks in her she'll complain about imperialism and manifest destiny, and might forget what century it is.

SECTION FOUR: Abilities
Template: Wereshifter, Olcan, Fae
Template Advantages:
= Longevity
+ Hybrid Animal Form (Wolf)
+ 2x Human Speed and Strength
+ Animal Senses (Canine)
+ Area Empowerment (Untouched Nature)

Template Disadvantages:
- Metal Weakness (Silver)
- Moonbound (Full Moon)
- Wolfsbane Weakness
- Metal Weakness (Iron)

Core Ability: - One With the Forest - Malina can teleport between any two living trees that she knows about within a mile of each other. In order to do this, she must touch one of the trees, and she cannot be directly observed by any sapient being. There must also be a side of her destination tree which is not being observed, or else the ability will fail.

She can take someone else with her, but if they're conscious, the sudden change of scenery must be seamless to their senses. She has to be carrying them, they must keep their eyes closed, and both locations must either be quiet or experiencing very similar sounds - if a breeze is rustling leaves in one location but not the other, it won't work. If one location has much more light than the other, her passenger needs to have their eyes covered.

Bonus: 3x human durability

Wealth: Income is nothing special, but she's not in debt and has a healthy amount of savings.

SECTION SIX: History
Date of Birth: September 6, 1741
Place of Birth: If it's in another world, dimension, etc, please note that.
History: (cw transphobic violence)
  • Was the first blood wolf born during Tasha's reign as Alpha
  • Restless and curious when she was a young boy. Often joining her packmates when they met with Native American tribes, she was fascinated by some gender-nonconforming people she met from these groups.
  • One day after the pack moved to Oregon, she went missing for a week. When she returned, she looked like a woman. She had been in the realm of the fae and saved the life of a fae prince. In return the fae granted her several boons, including one of her innermost desires - a feminine appearance. It was around this time that she adopted the name Malina. Not all of the pack were happy about it, but between her blood wolf status and Tasha having Malina's back, they generally stayed in line.
  • Malina got her scars in 1928. She had been dating one of the newly-turned werewolves, Dennis - and it ended very poorly when Dennis learned Malina was 'not a real woman' and 'some kind of [homosexual].' Dennis and one of his stray friends later ambushed her. She barely survived. Dennis and his accomplice faced punishment and exile.
  • Malina has been a forest ranger since the 1980s, working primarily around the Polaris Pass area. Her position as a ranger has been very useful to the pack on many occasions.
additional info - she has an old 1998 Jeep which is still in good condition. It is well maintained and rarely sees use.

App Title: Riley Keegan

Tag line: A brief, one-line description of your character.

Banner Image: If you have one, please insert an image you are using for your banner (or icon). This should be no more than 200 pixels tall. This should use tags, or the insert image button.

Main Image Credit: Please credit the artist directly for the main image, if you use one. You only need to credit for the artist who made the banner image.

SECTION ONE: Basic Info

Name: Riley Keegan

Age: 16 (past lives don't count)

Gender: Uses she/her pronouns by default

Species: God (reincarnated)

Occupation: Student

Appearance: Red headed teenage girl who usually seems grumpy.

Personality: Clever. Considerate and morally upright. Confident. Thinks she has the solutions to the world's problems.

Abilities: Immortal. Durable. Breaks stuff with explosions.

Situation: Lives with her foster family in a house in Aurum Heights. Has her needs met, plus a small allowance.

SECTION TWO: Appearance

Gallery Link: If you have an off-site gallery of images for the character, please link it here.

Height: 5'5

Body: Light skin with freckles.

Face: Freckles. Intense eyebrows, almost seems to be scowling when her face relaxes.

Eyes: Green

Hair: Length, color, any distinguishing features.

Clothes: Tends towards androgynous, functional styles when she isn't in school.

Other: Any other characteristics not covered by the above? If your character has a particularly unusual appearance, how do they appear to unawakened characters?

SECTION THREE: Personality

Trait One: Contrarian - Riley is a critical thinker to a fault. She's critical of almost everything she's told, and sometimes even things coming out of her own mouth. A part of her mind is always trying to hone in on the truth by searching for the other side of a question

Trait Two: Divine Confidence - Riley is a literal god incarnate among mortals, and she knows this. She thinks that she has, or will have, the power, wisdom, and determination to solve almost any kind of problem. This is a core part of her identity. It often borders on hubris.

Trait Three: Righteous - Riley has strong moral convictions, and she does her best to live them.

Quirk: Intense opinions about political issues, especially regarding police, capitalism, and imperialism.

SECTION FOUR: Abilities

Template: God

Template Advantages: Immortality (=)

Template Disadvantages: n/a

Core Advantage: Explosions: Riley can generate fiery explosions within 8 meters of herself. She can control both the shape and intensity of the blast. One of her strongest concentrated blasts could punch a hole clean through a reinforced concrete wall. Her strongest undirected blast could knock over a car. These explosions are not as loud as they should be - often sounding less like a bomb going off and more like a firecracker. Still noticeable and startling, but not so loud that one needs earplugs to avoid hearing loss.

Riley cannot be harmed by her own explosions. However, she can intentionally point a concentrated one at herself to propel herself through the air - this is difficult to control, and while the blast itself wouldn't hurt her, she could still collide with something.

When she is about to use this ability, her eyes glow. She can also make her eyes glow without using this ability.

Bonus: 4x Human Durability

Nerfs and Flavor: Are any of your character's advantages weaker than usual? Does anything visually unusual happen when they use their abilities? If so, describe here.

SECTION FIVE: Current Situation

Occupation: High school Junior at True North Academy

Housing: Lives in a house with her foster family

Wealth: Meager allowance from her foster family.

SECTION SIX: History

Date of Birth: 13 December

Place of Birth: Baltimore, Maryland

History:

Riley had started speaking in full, articulate sentences by the time she was 18 months old. This was, of course, very strange. Stranger still were the things she'd revealed to them - including the fact that the vivid, shared dreams her parents had before her birth were prophetic, and that she was the reincarnation of a god most mortals had forgotten. She asked them to keep her true nature secret, and she gradually awakened them to the existence of the supernatural.

Riley did not retain much of her memories from her past lives. She could speak old dialects of languages like Chinese and Russian. and she knew eerily specific details about wars that ended centuries ago. By three years old, she had started talking with her parents about ethical philosophy, history, and current events. Some of her lessons rubbed off on her father - who worked for the Pentagon.

When she was nine years old, there was a raid on her home. Riley still doesn't know a lot of details - only that her father had commit some type of crime against the country, and that her parents were both killed in that raid.

The only close relative of hers who could take her in was her uncle - a war veteran with a drinking problem who lived halfway across the country in Oregon. He tried his best, but it was clear from early on that it wasn't going to work out. Riley actually convinced him to give her up to the foster care system voluntarily.

Her foster family has been more than supportive and understanding. Exemplary, even. They helped her attend True North Academy, which she got into on scholarship. She has excelled academically. In her junior year, she became class president.

SECTION SEVEN: Additional Information

Other: Favors red on accessories, such as rings, necklaces, or earrings.

SECTION THREE: Personality
Trait One: Underhanded - one doesn't survive feeding off of people for as long as she has without being clever. Rose knows how to trick, misdirect, and deceive, and she exercises this often. She'll even believe her own lies if they flatter her enough.
Trait Two: High self-esteem - Rose is looking out for number 1 at all times (herself). She sees this as a virtue, and views a refusal to do so as a sort of weakness.
Trait Three: Driven - when Rose wants something done, she knows how to use her wealth, power, and abilities to get it done. Once she gets on course to do something, it can be very difficult to shake her off course.

Quirk: Gets particularly attentive to discussions about animal-eared folks.

SECTION FOUR: Abilities
Template: Vampire, Ghost
Template Advantages:
+ x3 Human Speed
+ x2 Human Strength
+ x3 Human Regeneration
+ Animal Senses (Cat)
+ Intangible Form
+ Turning Bite
+ Silent Movement
= Longevity

Template Disadvantages:
- Blood Drinker
- Elemental Weakness (Sunlight)
- Elemental Weakness (Fire)
- Holy Weakness
- Invitation Required
- Ward (Natural Running Water)
- Wooden Stake Weakness

Nerfs / Flavor: When in her intangible form, Rose seems to turn into mist. She can float her way through cracks, but not airtight barriers.

Core Ability:
Advanced Hypnosis - Rose has a highly potent and versatile form of mind control available to her. Along with having the same Mesmer ability enjoyed by some vampires, if Rose makes uninterrupted eye contact with somebody for about ten seconds, she can place them in a deep hypnotic trance. Someone under Rose's spell becomes highly relaxed, pacified, and suggestible. They find it difficult to move unless instructed to do so, and often need to sit or lay down if not already doing so.

If Rose is able to spend uninterrupted time alone with a tranced subject, she can alter their minds in a number of ways. She does this by slowly, calmly talking them through whatever changes she would like to make. Changes that only take effect during trance are very easy to accomplish, while changes that continue to affect her subject after trance will take time, repetition, and gentle erosion of mental barriers if her victim is unwilling. Examples of what this can achieve include:
  • Erode Mental Barriers: Rose can make new or unwilling subjects more susceptible to her suggestions. This takes time, and becomes more effective with repeated exposure.
  • Sensations and Hallucinations: Rose can cause her subject to see, feel, hear, and experience things she describes to them while in trance.
  • Install Triggers: Rose can essentially program a subject's mind to give an unusual response to certain kinds of situations or stimuli outside of trance. For example - "When you feel my teeth break your skin, you will feel intense pleasure," or "If I tell you 'that's a bold fashion statement,' you will believe that your clothes have disappeared, leaving you completely naked. They will only reappear once you reach a place where nobody can see you.'" The more complicated the trigger, the more easily its effects can be resisted outside of trance.
  • Alter Memories: Rose often makes her subjects forget everything during and just before their trance. These memories can re-emerge if the subject is exposed to something that jogs their memory, or if they are asked specifically to account for the time they had been in trance. Even then, it may only come back in pieces.
  • Un-Awaken: With time and effort, Rose can use her hypnosis to reverse the awakening process on a recently awakened human. This involves convincing them they had a mental break of some kind.
Jostling, loud noises, and direct physical harm can jolt a subject out of their trance if Rose does not take time to prepare her subject for them. If somebody else is present to talk over Rose while she hypnotizes a subject, her efforts will be thwarted and the subject may end up getting awakened. If Rose is not actively hypnotizing somebody, they should awaken from their trance on their own within 5 minutes to an hour, depending on how deep they had gone.

Bonus: Wealth

SECTION FIVE: Current Situation
Occupation: Landlady (with many properties)
Housing: Deceptively small home in Aurum Heights with multiple basement levels.
Wealth: Maintains her large inheritances by investing it and taking rent from her properties in Polaris Pass and Portland.

SECTION SIX: History
Date of Birth: December 5, 1881
Place of Birth: New York
History:
  • Born into a wealthy family and learned about investing from them
  • Educated at Barnard College and got involved with the women's suffrage movement
  • Turned into a vampire by one of her fellow suffragettes, who was also her lover for many years
  • married a rich man and bled him dry (both literally and figuratively - doctors never figured out why he died)
  • Managed her inherited wealth well.
  • Moved west after a vampire hunter killed her former lover, who turned her.
  • Has since become a fixture in the economies of Portland and Polaris Pass.
  • Has kept people under her spell as personal servants for a long time. After the most recent one had to retire, she decided to try replacing them with one of those nek0s she had heard about - not having a family or people to miss them made the arrangement much more sustainable. After two years of NEK0 ownership, her resourcefulness earned her position as the head of the NOA.

additional info: all the residents at her properties have signed contracts which give her permission to enter their homes at any time. She is also the leader of the secretive NEK0 owners' association.

SECTION ONE: Basic Info
Name: Madeline Moore
Age: 18
Gender: Cis Female
Species: Demon, half-human
Occupation: Student, part-time in tourism

Appearance: almost twenty year old white teen with green hair, horns, pointy
Personality: Adventurous. Enjoys entertaining others.
Abilities: Illusions, demon shit
Situation: Lives with her aunt, goes to school, and works part time.

SECTION TWO: Appearance
Character Image: none yet

Height: 5 feet 5 inches (165cm)
Body: athletic/sporty
Face: pointy nose, expressive eyeliner
Eyes: green
Hair: Shoulder length and wavy. Dyes her hair unusual colors, lately green.
Clothes: Tends to favor unbuttoned flannel shirts and jeans, when not in a uniform. Tomboy vibes
Other: Conical white horns sticking out of her head, pointy ears

SECTION THREE: Personality
Trait One: Adventurous - Madeline craves excitement. She's sometimes willing to break rules or take risks just for a thrill.
Trait Two: Creative - Madeline has an artistic streak. She also finds herself drawn to the strange and unusual, while anything too conventional can leave her with a bad taste in her mouth.
Trait Three: Preoccupied with being liked. She is drawn towards entertaining others.

Quirk: Southern accent

SECTION FOUR: Abilities
Template: Demon
Template Advantages:
+ Profane Weapon (sword)
+ Flight

Template Disadvantages:
- Holy Weakness
- Sin Eater (Envy)

Nerfs / Flavor:
Sin Eater
can be satisfied when others are envious of her, or when she engages in a spiteful act. If she goes too long without 'feeding' like this, she may have an hours-long episode feeling intense envy for others, which will ruin her day.

Core Ability:
Madeline can create illusions up to 50 meters away, if she has a clear line of sight. Her illusions affect both sight and hearing, and can make any sound or take on any appearance she likes. Within 10 meters, her illusions even feel real, though they cannot directly cause harm.

Illusions require focus to maintain, especially when they're complicated. Multitasking can be difficult, and distractions can lead to the illusions distorting, flickering, or being entirely dispelled.

Illusions that she makes from farther away cannot be as complex or detailed as illusions that are close to her, and they require more focus to maintain. Madeline can see through her own illusions, and can give others this same ability while touching them. Her illusions will show up on cameras and sound recording devices; they actually generate light and sound. Someone immune to magic or mental effects will still be able to see and hear them them, though they would not be able to feel them, and they may not be as convincing.

Bonus: n/a

SECTION FIVE: Current Situation
Occupation: Student / part time gift shop cashier
Housing: Aunt's house, in a less wealthy part of aurum heights
Wealth: has most of her needs provided for by her aunt. Helps pay bills by doing various tourism-related jobs.

SECTION SIX: History
Date of Birth: June 6, 2003
Place of Birth: Small town in Alabama
History:
Madeline grew up in a rural southern town with fairly religious parents. As a baby, she cried during her baptism and got a terrible rash afterwards. As she grew up, she became increasingly averse to going to church. When she was nine years old she sprouted horns and her powers began to manifest. Her parents assumed she was struggling with some kind of mental illness giving her delusions. It wasn't until she had an episode of involuntarily floating off the ground that her parents became Awakened.

After learning that their daughter was an actual, literal demon, they kicked her out. Fortunately for Madeline, she had an aunt who was already awakened and was more accepting of Madeline's otherworldly nature. Madeline gave her a tearful phone call, and she got on the next plane down to where Madeline was staying. When the dust had settled, Madeline had a new home in Polaris Pass with her aunt. She has grown up there since, attending the private school where her aunt taught.

additional info: Her 'sin eater' thing is entirely undiagnosed.
She did fencing for a few years after her sword manifested, but no longer goes to competitions.


—-

cant wait to play her as being bi in denial again, but better this time

I'm probably not going to give her any royalty related plotlines this time shes just going to go around causing a ruckus
