Third Dawn (Infamous inspired RP/OOC)

(1/4) > >>

(Note: I'm taking quite a few elements from the Infamous series so similar setting but not quite like any of the games, taking place roughly around the time of First Light for those who followed the timeline.)

Five years ago...the world was changed forever...or at least for some people. The lucky...or unlucky in some cases. People given extraordinary powers, bending the elements around them in incredible but often dangerous ways. Some wanted these 'Conduits' locked away, others simply wanted them dead opting to take justice into their hands...but yet others sympathized with the Conduits wanting them to live like they do after all. But whatever your take is, Conduits aren't the only ones whom this story revolves around...everyone can be a hero or Infamous after all, Conduit, Military, and Civilian alike...What will your story be, heroic, infamy...or something inbetween?

Character Type 1: Conduit

Life had never been easy since you discovered your powers...maybe that bully in school pushed you just a bit too far, or that difficult customer triggered you into overreacting? Maybe you just ran away after you discovered it, maybe your parents gave you something to start you off not wanting to see you taken and locked up. No matter what however, Here you are now...On the streets of Pittsburgh in hiding, maybe hopping from cheap apartment to crashpad if you were lucky. Scraping by on whatever you got from the charity of others or falling into petty crime. But somehow as a Conduit...you're still alive and you aren't locked up in Curden Cay...must be a reason why.

Character Type 2: Military

Maybe it was feeling the need to serve your country...maybe you're doing this for forgiveness of your crimes or to fight the recent Bio-terrorist problem. You stand in line with the other soldiers now awaiting your next orders. Your next deployment, Pittsburgh, PA. A recent report of an influx of Bio-terrorists and it's up to you to hunt them down and restore peace there. Hunt them down and haul 'em off to Curden Cay and you'll be the hero they told you...but it won't be easy that's for damn sure as if their powers weren't enough to contend with the people sure won't be happy about your occupation of their city and the possibly cruel treatment. But it's all for the best, right?

Character Type 3: Civilian

Like any other day it seemed when the military rolled in, you just going off to your job or your classes maybe have dinner with the folks or meet your girlfriend today for a cruise...Now you got these military people on every corner scanning you for the Conduit Gene. All seems excessive but it's to keep you safe from the Bio-terrorist or 'Conduits' as you've heard them called from time to time. Didn't one just destroy an office building yesterday, killing a bunch of people? But they can't all be bad...maybe one saved your Brother or Sister from gangsters or drug dealers...Where do you stand on the issue?

So this little excursion shall take place in Pittsburgh since the Infamous games all took place in better known cities to stick with that theme. It'll be about the struggle of power between the Conduits and the Military as well as the Civilians caught in between it. And Don't worry Civilians won't be as underpowered or boring as you may think i assure you, so let's get a good spread of characters

1. No Godmodding whatsoever
2. For now, Limit three characters per player
3. All disputes shall be settled via PM or the OOC here.
4. I hold the final say in all quarrels and disputes

i'll finish editing the rules later as i'm tired right now and need my rest...

 Placeholder.  Let's just forget about the fact i forgot i posted the placeholder.  (:

Name: Kyrios Avagnar
Age: 21
Gender: Male
Species: Warg
Clothing: Standard DUP ofutfit
Appearance: Stands 6'1" and clocks in at 135lb. Has a slender frame, but with with fairly developed musculature. Has Darkbrown fur with white along his jaw. Always has his hair slicked back, due predominately to wear a helmet almost all day. Suffers from heterochromia so his left eye is green while his right is blue.
Personality: Charming, yet blunt. Tends to follow orders even if he doesn't agree with them. Plays loose and fast even if the odds seem stacked against him. Comes off cocky, even sometimes arrogant but is will to fight to protect what he believes in and those he cares about.
Backstory: Grew up without knowing who his real parents ever were. He was lucky however and was adopted by a very loving Bull and Tigress. He lived with them for many years out in a small country town where his father taught him self reliance and his mother taught him how to have a way with words. However he dreamed of seeing the world much like every young child does, he got that offer on the age 18 when the military came through looking for fresh new recruits. He signed up, much to his mother's dismay and his father's understanding.

*Conduit Power: Stone.

Loadout: Standard issue 45ACP SMG, and a Combat Knife.
Training: Hand-to-hand combat training. Great in one-vs-one situations, but can be overwhelmed by a group.

* Since his abilities have not awakened yet he hasn't had any time to train and hone them. Due to this he can not fire off his ability in a projectile form. He can use his ability to create a second skin of sorts, but due to lack of training it leaves his back completely exposed, also when using this ability he moves slower due to not having adjusted to the added weight. He can use his ability to make a 3x3 stone wall as temporary protection.He can not however make multiple walls if he does make a new wall the other one immediately crumbles leaving whatever was behind it completely defenseless. The walls and the skin are not indestructible. While they can protect against bullets, large caliber weapons, explosives and blunt force weaponry can degrade them much faster and even outright destroy them. He also can not use his abilities in rapid succession due to dormancy and lack of training as well.
