    You are a member of Obsidian, a highly secretive organization of supernatural creatures and trusted humans. It was originally created in 1876 to keep the peace between human and supernatural, and it continues to do so to this day. It upholds law and ensures the safety of supernaturals and humans alike, protecting creatures from prejudice and harm, and protecting humans from forces they are unaware of.

    It is the year 2087, and Obsidian continues its practices, stronger than ever. Every populated region of the world has a sector of Obsidian pulling some strings. It has essentially become its own government and has technological and magical advancements far beyond what regular civilians could comprehend. They are the leaders in just about every technology, but they remain mostly under wraps, working with governments in secret, and going to occasional extreme measures to keep themselves hidden.

    As threats continue to appear, Obsidian continues to administer people to solve said threats. One such threat is nothing particularly new, but it has been deemed dangerous enough that a group of specific agents have been instructed to deal with it before it gets out of hand. You are part of this squad.

    Operation Silver Cross, an infiltration mission of great importance. Vampires have overrun the underbelly of Miami, a place one would not initially expect to find nests upon nests of vampires. Though they are scarce during the day, usually having their human cattle do what needs to be done, during the night they crawl through the streets and the clubs, preying on whatever human they can get their hands on. OSC has been tasked with eliminating this vampire menace by disposing of the leaders of the nests by whatever means necessary, and either destroying or arresting any remaining lesser vampires.

    You've been selected because of skills useful to such a mission, mostly skills useful towards recon and espionage. Led by a task force leader, this is your mission, and you are expected to succeed or die trying.


    1. Obviously no godmodding, meta gaming, mary-sue characters, etc.
    2. I’d like one post per 1-2 weeks at least, but more posts are always welcome. If shit’s happening in your life and you can’t post for a bit, I may take temporary GM control of your character (meaning they won’t get left behind, and I’ll make sure nothing awful happens to them without your consent)
    3. I’d like intermediate posters. 2-4 paragraphs is preferable. An occasional 1 paragraph is fine but don’t make it a habit. I like readable spelling and grammar, but it doesn’t need to be perfect.
    4. No loud or flashy characters are accepted. This is supposed to be a low-key mission, so characters with flashy powers or “true forms” of something large are not accepted. Your character doesn’t need to be a master of stealth, just don’t be a high-visibility/disruptive character.
    5. As for sexual content, I won't say no, but if your characters are doin' the dirty, please take it to PMs for the sole fact that this isn't a romance-centric RP, and I don't want to hold everyone up while y'all are sexin' it up.
    6. Only one character per person for now. I may up the amount later but it’s currently unlikely.
    7. If you lose interest in the RP, no worries! I won’t be offended, but I do want a little heads-up if you want to drop. I will be a tiny bit miffed if you ghost, but if you actually tell me you want to quit, I will have a lot of respect for you.
    As stated above, Obsidian is a powerful organization. They are privately run and are associated with no government. The creator and owner of Obsidian is largely unknown, but there are rumors floating around of who it is. The current figurehead of Obsidian is a kitsune woman named Haruko. They hate the term “company” and prefer the term “organization” or “agency”.

    Obsidian has divisions on every continent bar Antarctica. Each continent has a Lead Division that is considered the largest and most important, some other major divisions, smaller divisions, and outposts. New York is the Lead Division of North America.

    The people who are employed by Obsidian range from immortal creatures plucked from other planes to a regular human who just happens to really like history. Anyone who can make themselves useful are welcome, so long as they are willing to abide by the rules and regulations set in place by those higher up. It is secretive, thus anyone found to be leaking Obsidian information is to be terminated. There are contracts involved with signing up and breaking them can also mean termination. Agents are to bring back any creature that might be interested in a position with Obsidian, should they be found out on missions. Obsidian acquires its agents through voluntary signup, and no one is forced to sign on with them. Employed agents are given money in a personal Obsidian account, and their pay is dependent on their ranking within the agency. Money in this Obsidian account can be taken out as cash, but the account automatically changes currency for whatever country the agent might be in, meaning they can pay anyone so long as they who are receiving funds can accept digital transfer.

    Obsidian Agencies are less buildings and more small cities. They are literal underground networks where agents can live. They have everything an agent might need, including food, clothing, and living quarters. They often also include some sort of training area and leisure activities. Each division is a bit different, usually in a cultural aspect. While no division is filled with a shopping mall or anything, it has the necessities one might need. If agents desire luxuries, they must acquire those themselves in the surrounding area. Most large divisions are in large cities and thus have many opportunities for shopping. Agents are also allowed one day of downtime in whatever location they are being sent to for a mission, meaning they can buy any souvenirs they might want.

    In summary, Obsidian is strict but not a complete tyrant. They have important information that must be protected at all costs and don’t want it to slip. Agents and employees at Obsidian are required to keep secrets whether they like it or not.

    more info will be provided as needed
    Operation Silver Cross has a team filled with various people with differing abilities and specializations. For ease of my own documentation, I will be making a very rough “class” system in which you can tell me what your character is most like.

    I will only accept ONE [1] character in each class. If a sixth person wants to join, I will let them choose one of a couple classes.

    Classes:
    Soldier- The soldier is the basic strong, martial class. They often use up close and personal tactics as opposed to stealth or magical abilities of their own, but it’s not unheard of. They tend to be more damage dealers than damage takers.
    Tank- Brick walls made for soaking hits. Almost always close combat users. Even if they appear weak, they can take a ton of damage before they fall. They don’t always deal as much as they take, but definitely are no wimps.
    Recon- Stealthy people made for blending into crowds, breaking into places, using their charms and wit to gain info, etc. They are dangerous on their own right. They are not combat heavy, usually preferring to stay at a distance often using rifles or long range magical abilities.
    Support [Magic]- Magic support are those who can protect or buff those around them using their own innate abilities or using magical spells they have learned. They can also do some damage, but also tend to be distance fighters.
    Support [Tech]- Tech support are similar to magic support, but instead use science as a means of support. Making volatile chemical bombs, hacking into some cameras to keep the group hidden, piloting drones to spy, etc. Also not combat heavy.
    Medic- Arguably the most important team member. Medics are ones who can heal diseases and patch up wounds, either via magic or technology. They are encouraged to stay out of combat, but most battle medics are trained to hold their own in a fight.
    Please follow any info on the sheet, erase any of my notes and the little -- line/dash placeholder things before submitting. You’ll have a better time if you toggle BBCode off while filling this out.

    Name: Asher Darnell Price, Jr.
    Code Name: Cameo
    Nickname: Price
    Age: 25
    Race: Magically Enhanced Human
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Heterosexual (maybe a little bicurious)

    Personality:
    Price is a rather decent fellow and is rather cordial and pleasant when he needs to be. He does like joking around and poking fun, but knows when not to. He would never kick a person when they’re down. He likes to cheer people up in whatever way he can. The accumulation of a lot of magical energy with no real way of escaping means that he gets a little excitable when he hasn’t cast his spells and used up his magic. He has ADHD, but it gets a lot worse when he’s filled with the magic inside of him.

    On the flip-side, should Price expend all of his energy, he gets lethargic. While he can still move and be active, he won’t be happy about it. He can be a little overbearing with his optimism and kindness, and he is very outgoing, which is a turn-off to some. Still, he goes through life with his sunny optimism, always hoping for the best.

    History: Price was born to two totally plain humans, Asher and Cora Price. Despite their plain-ness, they were agents of Obsidian. While neither of them were field operatives, his dad was well known within the science department as a celebrated chemist. His mother was also rather well known in the administrative portion of the New York branch. Due to this, he was raised under Obsidian his whole life and sees the agency with rose-colored glasses. He loves Obsidian and really distrusts those who don’t.

    When he was a young kid, around 5, it was very obvious he was incredibly wired all the time. He rarely slept and was practically bouncing off the walls. He would run around and make himself tired in the only way he really knew how: a lot of movement. He was sent to early childhood therapy, in hopes of finding out why he was so hyper, but found nothing. Instead, he was sent for some testing. After all, normal humans had been known to birth extraordinary offspring.

    His magical energies were discovered when he was 7. While he was young, he could safely disperse the small amount of magic in his body, with some help, and would go about his day without the constant need to move. He began a sort of training procedure at 10 years of age, though it was mostly seen as a way to help him control what he had. It went well and he loved the attention. He still couldn’t focus it, but he learned how to safely let it all go without hurting anybody, by going to his “special room” and dispersing it into the air.

    At age 13, his powers started to go a little crazy with puberty, and they had to quickly find a way to contain them. Tech and Magic teamed up to give him a catalyst in which he could slowly stream out the energy in a variety of fun effects, like little sparkles or fancy illusions. He trained with these gloves, new ones being made for him as he outgrew the previous pair, and became incredibly good with control. He became a full agent on his 18th birthday and has been on multiple missions.

    While currently Price is not a senior agent of Obsidian, he is still considered to be a well-trained individual, and has been trusted to lead this mission. It his second mission as a team leader, but he has been on countless other missions and has the experience of an older agent.

    Weapons:
    General Loadout
    Price carries a sidearm pistol and a combat knife. He doesn't really like conventional weapons but also doesn't want to risk it. He’s not particularly great at using either, but isn’t too shabby. He prefers the gun over the knife.​
    Body Suit
    When on a mission or hardcore training, Price will usually wear a protective suit to keep himself safe. This not only protects his identity, but also aids in his spellcasting. The cloth itself is fire resistant, puncture resistant, and water resistant. His boots are rubber soled to keep him better protected against electricity. His helmet is shaded to keep him from blinding himself from a few of his spells, and his helmet also has a HUD that lets him know how much energy he has left and what spells he can still cast with it.

    While the helmet and hood are not discreet, Price’s suit actually can pass as formal wear if he wears it without those two pieces. He tends to do so if he knows he will be in a place where he can’t be hidden. However, it’s not uncommon for him to keep the helmet on and pass himself off as a bodyguard for his “client” that is his other team mate. He looks rather intimidating while in the suit, and knows to keep his mouth shut if he wants to stay that way.​
    Channeling Gloves
    Not necessarily a weapon on their own right, his gloves are specially crafted just for him. Without them, he cannot cast his magic. He’s not entirely sure how they’re made, but he knows that both the Magic and Tech fields came together to create them. They are his catalyst. Using these gloves, he can cast any spell currently downloaded into their memory, so long as he has the proper knowledge and amount of magical energy to do so.

    In order to cast, Price needs to make certain hand motions, as the gloves are equipped with motion detection. Along with these motions, he needs to expend the correct amount of energy into the gloves. When both conditions are met, a spell is cast.​

    Class: Support [Magic]

    Ability Name: Magical Energy
    Description: Price is naturally filled with a magical energy. He is not able to use it to his advantage, unfortunately, and therefore he is constantly overcharged with energy unless he disperses it in an incredibly violent burst. This energy often manifests physically as a bright violet aura around him when he gets overly emotional. He needs his specially made gloves in order to cast magic using this energy.
    Strengths: Is his own power, he has a lot of energy, he’s trained with it his whole life.
    Weaknesses: Cannot use said energy in a meaningful way without assistance from his catalyst gloves.

    Ability Name: Energy Ray
    Description: This is a simple spell that shoots a harmful ray of purple energy at an enemy. The energy is very hot and can burn flesh and the environment. It is a bit similar to a laser. It can only go in a straight line. It's relatively weak and isn't his primary focus, but it can be useful as it takes up very little of his own magical essence.
    Strengths: Uses little energy, is a consistent damage dealing spell, can set fire to things when concentrated.
    Weaknesses: Hard to hit moving targets, isn’t super powerful, can cause property damage, doesn’t discern between friend or foe.

    Ability Name: Telekinesis
    Description: A general utility spell, Price can use this to pick up, push, or pull an item that's roughly ten pounds or less. He needs to be able to see the object he is affecting.
    Strengths: Can lift and move objects from a distance.
    Weaknesses: Can be no heavier than 10 pounds and he needs to see it to move it.

    Ability Name: Flash
    Description: Should Price be in close combat and needs to get out of it, he can lift his hand to his enemy's face, make a snapping motion, and the glove will send out an incredibly bright flash to dazzle and blind the enemy. This would normally blind him as well, but his suit has a darkened face mask that protects him from such flashes.
    Strengths: Can blind and confuse an enemy for a few moments, lets him get away easier, low-power spell.
    Weaknesses: Does no real damage, can blind him too should he not be wearing his helmet or looking away.

    Ability Name: Jolt
    Description: When touching a person or object, Price can send energy through the glove and violently shock the person on the other end. This does do some rather heavy damage, but requires him to get up close and personal.
    Strengths: Actually rather powerful and can deal a lot of damage to one person.
    Weaknesses: Only affects one person at a time, he has to be touching an enemy for it to work, can’t use it from a distance.

    Ability Name: Bubble
    Description: This spell is a protect spell. It affects anyone he desires, so long as they are in a 20 foot radius centered on him. Those who are affected by this spell gain a protective barrier in the form of a purple shimmer around them that can reduce damage from magical and physical attacks. While it isn't perfected, the amount of damage will usually be lessened by roughly half of what it would have been (A major burn will only be a mild burn, for example). This barrier lasts roughly 10 minutes.
    Strengths: Protects from a decent amount of damage, easy to cast, keeps himself safe too.
    Weaknesses: Team needs to be rather close together to affect everyone, doesn’t stop all damage, wears off rather quickly.

    Ability Name: Invisibility
    Description: Price can choose one person or himself to make invisible. This invisibility only lasts for 2 minutes, but will remain the entire duration it is cast, no matter what the person does. If he casts it on more than one person, the magic will wear off on the first one cast.
    Strengths: Renders a person completely invisible to the naked eye, keeps invisible even while doing actions and attacking.
    Weaknesses: Doesn’t last long, can only be cast on one person at a time, needs line of sight and range to the person he wants to cast on, person can still be detected by motion sensors by breaking laser grids and can still affect dangerous environment.

    Ability Name: Repair
    Description: The magical energy swirls around a broken object and fixes it. Does not work on large objects, and he finds it will only work on roughly a single square foot at a time. This does not work on human bodies, only on machinery and non-organic things.
    Strengths: Can keep suits and weapons repaired, easily fix electronics or anything else broken, the effect is permanent until broken again, can be used on cybernetics.
    Weaknesses: Cannot be used on people and animals, is only a square foot of material at one time, takes time to fix large things.

    Ability Name: Discharge
    Description: A last resort, if Price finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place, he can completely discharge all of his magical energy in a large magical explosion. This uses up all the energy he has left, and the size of the explosion depends on how much energy he has left. If he uses this, his energy takes even longer to recharge and he is completely spent for about the next couple days.
    Strengths: Very powerful, can easily destroy environmental obstacles, those close to him likely won’t be coming out alive.
    Weaknesses: Is a last resort and will completely drain Price of any magic for the next couple days, isn’t good to use indoors as it can take down buildings, has been instructed to NEVER use it on this mission unless he thinks it is his only choice to not die, will also harm his team.

    Other:
    Price goes by his last name because “Asher is my dad’s name.” He also doesn’t really like his middle name, so he goes with Price.

    He loves his parents and always sees them on his time off. They go out to eat a lot and he regales them of his missions.

    He is an only child but sort of wishes he had a brother to hang out with.

    Price is an absolutely terrible liar and actor, and the best way to know he’s lying is if he smiles or laughs while he says it. He’s a lot better at just keeping his mouth shut than trying to lie.

    Price’s education came from Obsidian, and he sort of secretly wonders how it differed from regular school. He also kind of wants to go to college and university for Psychology or even Elementary Teaching, but doesn’t want to let down Obsidian or his parents.[/indent]

    I, CANDI COSMO, HEREBY RESERVE THE SOLDIER BOI. LET IT BE KNOWN
    [​IMG]
    Name: Yoseph Iziaslav
    Code Name: Synth
    Nickname: Yo
    Age: 29
    Race: Cybernetic Organism
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Demisexual

    Personality:
    The best way to describe Yoseph’s personality is lacking. He is known to be more robot than human, but he is neither one of those things entirely. Because of this, he’s always struggled in understanding human concepts. Or most social concepts, really. He is constantly trying to understand and fit into the social spectrum with those born from nature.

    That being said, one mood that Yoseph has picked up well is sass. (Thank his family for this.) He can get snappy at times, but generally only around his family. Or rather, his brothers. This isn’t something that comes out too often otherwise.

    If he is not trying to learn to be human, he is focused and logical. Yoseph will get a job done, sometimes regardless of moral standing. He will often choose the optimal path of decision making, whichever is most likely to get the job done no matter the risk.

    History:
    Yoseph was created, and then born. He is the result of fine tuning and experimentation in an attempt to create the perfect being. Unfortunately, he is far from perfect and thus was considered a failure. While the lab he was born in no longer exists and information on it is hard to find, he was eventually found and fully adopted by Yakov and Roksana Iziaslav. At the time, the two believed he was nothing more than a tormented child and took him in.

    He was anything but a normal child though. Yoseph was something of a cybernetic organism. Most of his internal organs are mechanical, his skin something akin to synthetic mesh, the rest somewho fabricated to look almost real. His brain seemed to be the closest thing to being fully human, and that was still only partial. It was very convincing up until he opened up a crevice on his chest to show his inner workings. Even stranger was the fact that a lot of the larger organs grew with him, and what didn’t only had to be replaced to keep up with the growth. This may have been why he was considered a failure to his creators, but the truth was never known.

    The Iziaslavs saw past all of this and still accepted him as their own. He was given a name, an identity, and a place within the family. As the middle child, his duties were to simply carry out what was needed. His two older brothers, Nikolai and Dmitry were busy helping run the family business (Russian Mafia stuff) and his younger sister was spoiled and allowed to do as she pleased. Yoseph covered everything in between including running errands, loan sharking, interrogating, violent dirty work-- most rival families called him the Iziaslav guard dog.

    While he carried out the family’s dirty work, Yoseph honed his body. He is able to mostly working on himself, whether that be upgrades or repairs. Given the situation he is given, he’s been able to adapt his body accordingly to support the job needing done. His body has been kept in great shape between maintenance and exercise.

    Through a series of deals, Yoseph was entrusted to Obsidian by none other than Yakov. The man was known to have ties with people of all sorts. Regardless of what was traded, Yoseph became an agent of Obsidian in his mid-twenties. As requested by his father, he treats the agency with the same respect of the family. Cut and dry, he is given an objective, and he does what has to be done to get it achieved.

    Weapons:
    • Arms
      • Each hand is equipped with a series of tiny boosters that aid in propelling punches. The underside of each wrist has a small set of vents to let out excess heat from the small but powerful motors. When not in use, the boosters are hidden under a movable panel and synthetic skin. Similar to the wrists, small jets line the outer forearm. There is a final, large booster on the backside of each elbow.
      • A retractable foot-long blade is concealed just beneath a protective panel on the upper-side of each forearm.
    • Shoulders
      • There is a retractable assault weapon implanted in the right shoulder. It uses standard 7.62×39mm assault ammo. There is a compartment under the armpit where ammo is stored. Clips can be inserted once the panel is opened. The rifle is not very large, nor is the barrel long, so it is not very accurate.
      • Like the right shoulder, there is a short-ranged concussive pulse cannon. While ammo is energy based and unlimited, it takes a while to recharge.
    Class: Soldier

    Ability Name: Enhanced Speed & Strength
    Description: His body is built to be slightly stronger than the average human being. The muscles are built from a fiber similar to muscle, and his bones are made from a nano-growing carbon fiber. Working together with an array of boosters, he can push beyond natural limits.
    Strengths: He can keep pushing even when all odds seem lost. Often times, ignoring damage as a result. Has the possibility of overclocking.
    Weaknesses: The energy to feed his boosters are drawn from a naturally emitted energy his core creates. It is not finite, and takes time to recharge. If depleted, he becomes vulnerable. There is also a chance of overheating as the vents on his body only aid in dumping the excess heat. ​

    Ability Name: Nanobiotic Regeneration
    Description: Yoseph can heal most wounds on his body via nanobots that are constantly in his system.
    Strengths: Most wounds can be healed on their own without much attention.
    Weaknesses: the nanobots are not perfect. The larger the wound, the longer it takes to regenerate. Loss of limbs or large portions of body cannot be healed, but can be sealed with a layer of skin. Can only be used on himself.​

    Ability Name: Adaptive Reconstruction
    Description: More of an obtained skill, Yoseph can alter his body depending on the situation. He knows the ins and outs of his build and can add or remove different aspects before a battle. This can range from cooling, plating, booster positions, weapon types, element resistances, elemental layering (like a fire blade or cryo ammo).
    Strengths: Yoseph can build to exploit weaknesses, or even strengthen his own defenses.
    Weaknesses: He is limited to the supplies he can find or carries with him. It has to be done or at least prepared before a battle, since it takes time. He is very vulnerable when altering certain parts of his body.

    Other:
    • Yoseph does need to exercise regardless of his fabricated muscles. Like normal muscles, they need to be worked out to keep strong and active.
    • He mostly eats nutrient paste, but can eat normal food as well. His body can process the food into a natural energy source, a lot like a normal human.
    • His taste simulators are basic and cause food to be very bland. Rather than taste, he can feel things. For instance, he loves spicy food because he can "taste" it the most. He can easily overdo it though and can overheat.
    • The glasses are purely for aesthetic. Someone once told him to wear them because they make him look a little more human. He has several pairs hidden in a compartment of his body in case the ones he's wearing breaks.

    [​IMG]
    Name: Veronica Crosby
    Code Name: Faze, Phase but spelled in a 'more interesting way' according to her
    Nickname: Roni
    Age: 26
    Race:
    Gender:
    Female
    Sexuality: Trysexual- She'll try anything once
    Personality: Veronica is an oxymoron of sorts. She can be very forthcoming and free with information about herself while never telling you anything you'd need to know to really know her. She guards her true self while projecting a personal she's developed since childhood.

    Veronica acts in a sassy, opinionated and absolutely self assured manner. Despite those traits she plays perfectly well with others, even makes misguided attempts to motivate her team to perform better by goading them with subtle insults and cheapshots. She aggressively goes after the things she wants, be it completing a mission or securing a sex partner. She has a biting sense of humor that can be rather dry at times but gets a kick out of goofy, slapstick humor. Sarcastic remarks are her jam and it's hard to tell when she's serious. When she's not working she often spends time alone, citing people as "draining on her mental health" but really she just doesn't like to be bothered too much.
    She lacks patience for just about everything except work and will give up if things don't come to her easily. And boy they better come easy because she will complain until the cows come home to get her way.

    History: One of many 'orphans' of Obsidian, Veronica was dropped off by her mother who gladly exchanged a crying baby she couldn't afford to feed for a couple hundred dollars. Thankfully Obsidian did a pretty decent job of raising Veronica though she feels indebted to them in ways that make her uncomfortable as hell.
    Those she trained and grew up with became her siblings, her instructors and carestaff her parents. Though she claims she has no interest in meeting her birth parents it obviously bothers her. So instead of dwelling on feelings of being unwanted, Veronica throws herself into work and other vices.

    Weapons: A high powered rifle and a rather fancy, cyberknetic style dagger. She's much better at shooting, especially from long distances but can hold her on in hand to hand combat if it comes to it, preferring to fight quick and dirty as she lacks the physical capabilities for a slug fest.
    Class: Recon

    Abilities:
    Ability Name: Intagible​
    Description: Veronica is able to render herself intagible allowing her to phase through solid structures such as walls for a period of twelves seconds.​
    Strengths: There is no place she can't access really.​
    Weaknesses: If she's not wearing her suit her clothing will drop to the floor the instant she goes intangible. Twelve seconds isn't a really long period of time. She cannot pass through living things or organic materials. It's a drain on her stamina and makes her tired.​

    Ability Name: Vital Points​
    Description: Veronica is able to analyze a targets weak spots quickly, be it a structure or person.​
    Strengths: Useful when figuring out how to take something down.​
    Weaknesses: To be fair it's not really a 'super power' as other people could do it as well if given the time but she can do it near instantly.​

    Ability Name: True Aim​
    Description: Veronica never misses.​
    Strengths: Can hit targets from incredibly long distances away, much farther than even the most well trained sniper.​
    Weaknesses: Even though her aim is impeccable from great distanes she has to factor in the trajectory of the bullet for example, as it would be affected by anything in the environment. She will hit her target but not always in the intended spot.​

    Ability Name: Silence​
    Description: Veronica can completely nullify any sounds she makes, even the sound of her own heartbeat.​
    Strengths: She can quietly infiltrate an area, never alerting anyone to her presence via sound.​
    Weaknesses: She has to concentrate in order to do this making it very difficult to more than one other task in the process. It's best used in very short bursts and cannot reasonably be maintained for any length of time.​

    Other: Veronica's suit is tailor made for her, possessing the ability to go intagible along with her. It also realeses a shock to stun anything that touches her on her command though it has a pretty long refresh rate.
    She's also very flexible and can bend in almost contortionist ways. It comes in hand when dealing with obstacles that aren't worth spending the energy to go intagible to avoid.

    Name: Rowan Wilson
    Code Name: Tungsten
    Nickname: Wilson; Rowan; Row
    Age: 33
    Race: Human
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Bisexual


    Personality: Outgoing but not overly so, coy and crafty, but usually serious when it comes to work. Rowan can be sharp, harsh, demanding and may take leadership when it really isn't her's to take. She doesn't handle stupidity well and will take matters into her own hands if she wants something done right. She is headstrong and can be a bit temperamental, but means well in the end. She doesn't trust easily, but she is vehemently loyal to her duties and endures until her tolerance is pushed to it's limit. Don't think she won't express her opinions though. Time outside of the military has loosened her tongue. On the other hand, she knows how to take a joke and is friendly when in the mood. As hard as she tries to keep work separate from her personal life, she has occasionally slipped up and made a friend or two.


    History: R. Wilson is a name that Obsidian has known for a while. Though, it started off with a man named Roan Wilson, and eventually acquired the addition of his daughter, Rowan Wilson. Within Obsidian, even if one didn't known Roan or Rowan personally, they have at least heard the name and knew that if they were put on a task, then it meant things were getting done. Their reputation exceeds them, and even sometimes melds the two together, spreading rumors that there have always been just one R. Wilson.


    Rowan was raised in a military family. Roan for many years was under the guise that he was part of the military and he was spec ops. Trudi Wilson, her mother, was none the wiser until one day she found out. Roan had been in between missions and came home to be with his loving wife and baby daughter. Trudi had walked in on him abruptly, and found Roan in mid conversation with one of his superiors. Trudi could tell right away this was no military conversation. Not when the hologram showed a man that had a tiger head as the other participant. Roan had to explain, and, well, he got in quite a bit of trouble for that. But he also made Trudi promise to never tell Rowan about this. She was to continue to think that her father was military.


    And Trudi kept her promise. Rowan grew up telling everyone her dad was military special ops. She took pride in it. And eventually when she was old enough, she signed up for the marines, much to her mother's displeasure. She wanted to be like her father. The thrill of adventure and the fighting spirit flowed through her. And she knew she had more purpose in her than to just be a paper pusher. She put everything into making it to her goal. And it really only took her eight years to slip her way into a spec ops team. But once she reached the top... she realized no one knew about her father. The name didn't ring a bell. He never worked for them.


    Feeling confused and betrayed, Rowan took her frustrations out in her work. Her performance was affected, and on occasion she made brash mistakes. One of which, was a blessing in disguise. On a mission, she was sent to handle an unidentified threat. Her officers couldn't tell her what exactly it was, but to eliminate it. She, with the rest of her team, went in. The building had been quarantined, but what Rowan hadn't been expecting was to be face to face with monsters. She wasn't even sure what kind of monsters they were. People strung up on steroids and bath salts? LSD? PCP? There had to be an explanation as to why these humanoid looking people had an unhinged jaw filled with razor sharp teeth and glaring red eyes. Why they crawled along the walls in an inhumanly possible manner. Why their shrill screams raised the hairs on her neck. The husks of what once was their victims huddled in the corner. These were definitely not human. But vampires didn't exist--as far as she knew.


    Naturally, after the incident, Rowan couldn't get the images out of her head. Never in her life had she seen anything like it. There had to be an explanation. The more she dug, the less she understood. More and more she dove into a world that she swore was only in books and fictional television shows. It was starting to get to her. She felt like her entire existence was becoming a lie.


    It wasn't too long after that she was approached by Obsidian in a way that she would have never begin to expect. Right across the small table at her favorite little coffee shop sat her father, telling her about all different kinds of things. He came clean about his work and what he did, why he had to lie to her. Why he was telling her this now. He extended the invitation to her. She could become an Obsidian agent, and become more than what she already had with the military. At first Rowan rejected the idea. It was overwhelming to think that this whole other world existed, and that she wasn't going down a rabbit hole of insanity. In a few days time, she accepted the terms of the contract.


    Seven years later leads Rowan to her position today. She worked hard to maintain her reputation. Whether it was a piggyback off of her father's or her own, it didn't matter to her. She wanted the family name to be recognized within the organization. Maybe even feared for kicks. She wanted to be known for her work and knowing that she was damn good at it. She is seasoned on the field, but rarely has made it into teams that had needed her service for an extended period of time. This would be a first.


    Weapons:
    Power Armor - there are two layers to this power armor. The first layer is skin-tight but made of a durable fabric that is bulletproof, fire resistant, and waterproof. It keeps her safe on a basic level. The second layer is plated with metal, but allows her to be flexible enough to fight. It is meant to be worn directly over the first layer like a suit of armor. It allows a much better defense against enemy attacks and also allows her to use an array of tech and defense fields.
    Photon Shield - one of the best things about the suit and that becomes the symbolic piece to Rowan's tank classification is her photon shield. While she has it up, all allies within fifteen feet of her will be protected. She can move around with the shield activated, but she cannot attack with weapons. The shield is able to hold back a large amount of pressure, handle an immense amount of stress, and can hold up consistently for maxiumum 5 minutes before having to be recharged and redeployed. Recharge time is 3 minutes.

    Force Field - this is a rectangular frontal block shield that will protect all allies behind her. It is made of the same photon technology as her other shield, but has a shorter recharge time and shorter duration time. The force field can change size (not shape), being anywhere from 1 foot to 8 feet tall and 2 feet to 10 feet wide. She cannot attack with weapons. It can last up to 2.5 minutes until having be recharged and redeployed. Recharge time is 30 seconds.
    Power Bracelet - in times where Rowan cannot use her power armor (whether it be too bulky or too indiscreet), she can trade it out for a bracelet and briefcase. The Power Bracelet will allow her to activate her two shields from her second layer of her power suit but at a fraction of their strength and time. The Photon Shield may only be deployed for 2 minutes and must be recharged for 3 minutes. Her Force Field may only be deployed for 30 seconds and must be recharged for 30 seconds.


    Briefcase - in reality, the briefcase is just a portable way to transport the second layer of her power suit. It can be compacted to fit in a standard briefcase (yes, it will be heavy), but if ever gone through baggage checks, it has a cloaking device to make it initially look as if it is just heavy luggage.


    Kerristein - a multi-use weapon that was created specifically for Rowan's fighting style. It is essentially, four weapons in one: a baton, a polearm, a two-handed hammer, and a rifle.
    Baton - can be used as a one item or two item weapon. Small, lightweight, has the capability to send out an electrical charge upon impact (like a taser). This weapon allows Rowan to move and attack quickly. This is best used for quick passing, stealth, or on opponents she knows she can easily overcome. Her defense from this weapon only comes from what she can physically block with the baton, but the area of coverage is very small.

    Polearm - a mid-range melee weapon, it allows Rowan to have a slight distance between her and her opponent. Her hits can be harder than that of the baton's, but requires some space and momentum. She can still move quickly wielding this, but not like when using the batons. This is Rowan's standard weapon when in usual combat. Her block coverage is better, but still meant to retaliate quickly with momentum.

    Two-handed-hammer - by adding the heavy head attachment to the polearm, Rowan is able to wield a hammer that takes an immense amount of strength to maneuver. She is slow moving, but her hits are very powerful with the hammer. Though it has the same capacity to block as the polearm, it takes a greater amount of momentum to retaliate.

    Rifle - only used in case of emergencies where Rowan needs to disengage, there is a pull down portion of the pole that will transition it over to shooting like a long-barreled rifle. It is not meant for continuous shooting,--just enough to get out of harm's way. This essentially has no defense or blocking capabilities and if the opponent is too close, she may not be able to shoot.

    Class: Tanky tank
    Abilities: None. As a simple normal human, she got nothin'.


    Other:
    Rowan actually likes to karaoke and even for a short time, worked with a few agents in a recreational "garage band" project
    She was actually referred to for the Adamantine Project-- a project where her bones would be coated with adamantium to enhance physical strength and durability. She is still on the fence about this project though, and has not given a decision yet.
    Her father Roan Wilson is still an agent within Obsidian, but doesn't go out on the field much anymore.

    HOO okay sorry for my disappearing act

    @Candi Cosmo LOVE HIM he is accepted
    @Dao Ma of course accepted
    @tsurara I like the basics, but my main question is what is she? Is she an enhanced human of some sort? Why does she never miss? Why can she become intangible? Even if she doesn't know what she is, OOC we need to know what she is.

    Are either of you still interested? If you are, please get sheets up soon, like within the next week. If not, just give me a heads up so I can open up spots. I want to get the IC up soon.

    As for anyone else reading this, if you are interested please let me know! We could always take a few more people showing interest just if someone wants to drop and we need someone else. That and there is officially one spot still open.

    Name: Arriella Taylor Synner
    Code Name: Genie
    Nickname: Ari
    Age: 25
    Race: Siren
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Straight

    Personality: Ari is quiet and reserved. She keeps mostly to herself unless the need arises for her to open her mouth and speak. Communication with her is mostly done through actions, as she is not quick to trust new comers. She won't let this affect her ability to do her job, she is dedicated to a fault to the cause and has a history of going above and beyond. Taking care of her mental health has been an issue in the past when shes worked herself to the brink of insanity. She was quick to be brought back by her former team, it made her develop a fidgeting habit with small objects of any kind. She is kind and honest to those she feels most comfortable around and will often empathize with others.


    History: Ari's history is rather blurred, given the fact that she won't disclose more than what is necessary. She's been with Obsidian for a number of years. Originally recruited for her unique racial abilities to phase herself through solid objects and make short distant teleports. Most of her race had either gone into hiding, chosing to fall into myth or were hunted to be brought into slavery. Ari is crafty and her quick thinking and deduction skills made it very easy for her to wiggle out of most situations.

    This was proven to Obsidian when she got caught in the middle of a fire fight. While trying to help the innocents in the line of fire, she was approached. Given a card and some time to think the offer through. She decided to take it, as it gave her a choice and security and protection. She trained hard until she was able to make it to the feild teams and soon climbed the ranks to where she is now.

    Her superiors are the only ones that she feels comfortable disclosing her personal history too, she has gotten quite tired of being so guarded, however. She knows that the missions are dangerous and she may not make it back. It's possible that the mystery of her past may unravel, given the right person and time.

    Weapons:
    [​IMG]
    She carries around "Medic Class AR" with the ability to shoot stimulation darts which are equal to temporary or quick spurts of healing. Works with mosts races, it administers chemicals that encourage and speed up the natural healing process around the area.

    Aside from being equiped with the standard medical kit including large bandages, healing sprays, anti-venom and antidotes, coagulants, standard sterile tubes containing medical tools for cutting or amputation, suture kits of varying degrees and much more. She is also equipped with armor that is lightweight to help with her portaling, but durable to enough to take a hit.

    Ari also has a large energy sheild she can place around herself and one other individual. This looks like a standard wristwatch but activates by her voice command. It will only last for 20 mins inbetween charges. This is only used typically during procedures where the rest of her team is unable to reach her. Emergency use only.


    Class: Medic
    Abilities: -- (can add more abilities using the indent form)
    Ability Name: Phase​
    Description: The racial ability for a Siren to phase itself and anything on itself through solid objects.​
    Strengths: Handy when trying to get to hard to reach places or hiding.​
    Weaknesses: If the Siren becomes unstable during phase (fatal wound, focus compromised, or power interuption) the Siren will become soild mid phase, potentially killing it.​


    Ability Name: Time jump​
    Description: The ability for a Siren to slip in and out of the *other dimension* and appear anywhere from 10-40 feet from its original destination in the mortal realm.​
    Strengths: The power to cover a great distance in the blink of an eye​
    Weaknesses: Should the Siren get lost, hurt, or confused during its time in the *other dimension* it will not be able to escape in a timely manner and take anywhere from an hour to months to escape. There is also the small chance the Siren will never escape and perish.​

    Ability Name: Wail/Siren Song​
    Description: The ability for a Siren to use an otherworldy sounding voice to temporarily daze, stunn or charm its target depending on the tone. Effects will last about 5 mins from the time the sound ends.​
    Strengths: Grants the Siren a chance to escape or seduce a target​
    Weaknesses: Can damage the Sirens normal voice if overused (more than once a day). This will cause the Siren to lose the ability to use its normal voice, giving it only the ability to talk in song, never to speak normally again. If the Siren is already damaged, their songs may backfire and charm themselves as well. An overused siren song can also make the Siren change alignment, slipping slowly into insanity or madness.​


    Other:

    * Please let me know if I need to change anything or add anything! Also, pardon the spelling errors. My spell check addon is not loading and I'm sure I have a few*

    We have a Medic and a Technological Support class open, as well as a second Recon considering we have 7 players currently.

    Not sure what class Infinity would want, but those are what's open as of right now.

    Edit: Hot damn Infinity posted, so medic is taken

    She looks good as far as I can tell, just with the sheet if you could remove anything I put in parentheses, and also remove the -- lines, as those were just there for placeholder text. Otherwise she looks fine, but if anything comes to my attention I'll let you know!

    @lyriclyrandom
    So first, I feel like I put it somewhere in the first post but apologies if I didn't or it was hard to find, I don't allow aliens in this setting. I do this for my own personal reasons.
    Second, you didn't follow my sheet that I provided really at all, and I would need you to use my coded sheet in the first post to post your character. As a whole, I would have to say no to this character. I'll let you think of another and try again if you like, but please make sure to use the sheet provided, it makes my life a lot easier trying to keep everything organized. If you need help with the coding let me know.

    I appreciate you allowing me to try. I apologize that I didn't understand how to do it. Thank you for the offer, but I'm not that good with technology and don't understand the coding stuff. Thank you.

    It's fine, it's why I offered to help with coding if you want. Does your response mean you'd like to try again with a new character or no?

    @Infinity
    lol you're good, will add her to the roster.
