Little Light of Mine

Prologue
In sleek black silk walked two legs gaunt as bones. Atop the legs a body frail as a skeleton and bathed in the ebony clothing. A hood over its head and a pale white face. Two slant eyes of deep scarlet color and livid elliptical pupils ablaze with anger. The being was tall, taller than most and had glossy skin the color of the moon. It was hairless and gaunt as could be, and its body was lanky and more slender than a snake. It was twelve feet tall and had a head crowned with the black horns of a ram. Its lips were skinny and as they parted one would see in a cryptic snarl a plethora of fangs gushing black venom. Its claws were huge, each a foot long and colored jet black. Its hands and it's feet were both stained with the same darkness and looked as though it had gone digging in the blackest of mud.

The beast wore a suit of flexible black material, much like rubber. Spreading out from this suit a thick black cloak that trailed behind it and all around it like a lingering stormcloud. It walked about a hall which was dark, but lit sparsely by what seemed as starlight. Light glowed from above, an array of alien consoles and a collective of twinkling devices like nebulas. The floor below was like obsidian and was embellished with swirling cracks and crevices which purple, green, an blue light slipped from.

The dark being stepped towards a mechanical object that protruded from the floor and grew from it like a wart. It was a fountain which opened up like the maw of a monster with a collective of black edged blades that swirled round and round, radiating from its center and ejaculating thick green vapor. The center of the fountain opened up and revealed the boiling red fluid just below the swimming blades. A massive triangular cube arose from the liquid and hovered in place. It spun on a point and the looker observed its surface. The cub was obsidian and it too was filled with many cracks and engravings. Although these engravings formed symbols, pictures, even words and glowed dark emerald.

The beast tapped its surface with its claw and the cube stopped moving. One of its faces split apart into many triangular fragments, coming apart and revealing its innermost secrets. A shining green orb within it that glistened like a star. The light singed the skin of the face of the beast. It cringed, letting out a high-pitched shriek coupled with a low growl in the back of its mouth. The first later of facial skin curled away quite quickly and the second layer began to ebb. It quickly reached its hand into the cube and touched the light with the tip of the claw of its index finger. It seemed to draw up a fragment of the light, much like a needle as many cracks along the surface of its claw filled with light.

The beast subtracted its finger and the pieces of the cube replaced themselves, shielding him from the specter of light. The beast then moved away from the fountain, watching the cube fall back into the fountain. The monster eyed his now luminous claw but his attention was diverted when many being approached him from all angles. They were very small, petite, and weak. But they were strong in mind, so it went. They each looked as though human but their bodies were black and crafted of gaseous shadow that swirled about. They each had tiny horns sprouting from their heads and looked up at the beast to call it master. They pondered what it was doing with the light in its claw, and were so curious as to let loose their whirlwind voices and ask.

"My dearest," the beast spoke aloud, his voice thunderous like a crashing wave. It was warped and demonic as though many souls within him spoke simultaneously. "The day has come that I subtract from my enemy a portion of what he was... I have a use for him yet."

"A use? Surely not, Pale One," the creatures whispered.

The skin of the Pale One's face had regenerated by now and he gave a scowl to them. Each withered instantly and became small and feeble. The beast looked upon the light in his claw once more. "The Archangel's power has the potential to bestow gifts upon the mortals. Fabulous unfathomable gifts beyond their wildest desires. And Earth has grown far more sinful than I had ever anticipated. Their so-called modern technology has given them new ways to sin and each does so on a higher frequency than ever before."

"Why would you interfere?" whispered the creatures.

"Because I believe that the humans are capable of yet growing ever more sinful. I know that the Archangel would enjoy knowing that his powers shall be abused and used for evil. The humans will mistake the power for simple disease and disorder and will come up with their own ways of explaining it in their ever blasphemous craft of science. They know not what this universe houses, and they are ignorant, naive, defiant of every sign we give them. Therefore I am to show them. I shall give them these powers and I shall release my hellions across the surface of their world. Some will believe but others--the nonbelievers, the analysts, the atheists, those too closed-minded to believe anything apart from a mindless system of theories and possible possibilities -- will never believe. Not until I show to them my face, and that I will, that I will. My dearest, it is time to release the Archangel's blood and smear it across their globe like a fine cream. They will try and defy it with vaccinations and will develop drugs which suppress its power. They will advertise these powers as something bad so that the masses will buy their drugs and fill their greedy pockets with money. This is a sin I wish to taste from them."

"You are most brilliant, Pale One."

"Without a doubt," the Pale One replied. "Now, I spread the seeds of war," he said. From his free hand shot a dark red bullet of light at the wall and instantly the metal opened and split into a large hole. The stars of space could be seen in all their glory and Earth's face stood what looked like just a leap away. He held out his claw which still glowed brightly and aimed with a straight and outstretched arm directly at the planet. From his claw fired several bullets of green light until the luminosity in his claw ceased.

Welcome
Welcome to Little Light of Mine (LLM). This RP will focus on humans who have developed strange magical powers. These humans are often nicknamed Demigods. It is a darker RP so those of you who can't handle gore, violence, and overall dark themes should not invest time into it. We begin in the year 2032, technology has already advanced substantially. We now have self-driving vehicles and better architecture. Drones are a more common thing and artificial intelligences are beginning to develop. Now several years ago a "disease" began to spread across Earth, of unknown origin, that enabled humans to have strange abilities. I have listed the abilities below this historical summary.

The United States began to advertise that the disease was bad and made false claims that it harmed one's insides (note: your characters should not know that this is a lie) and created suppressive drugs which they advertised heavily to fuel their economy. Other countries embraced the powers and embedded them into their everyday culture and even the military. The United States quickly declared war on these nations which used the abilities in such a way. New Geneva Conventions were held which addressed the use of these abilities in warfare and outlawed them. However, several nations had grown strong enough to gain the boldness to ignore this. This caused the war which was dubbed World War III. It began with Islamic terrorists using their powers to attack American areas of mass population. American militias also formed which performed terrorist attacks back upon the Middle Easterners when the US military seemed to hesitate due to the poverty and poor conditions of several of these terrorists' home countries.

Your characters will be caught in the fray of this World War III.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Abilities

- Healing/Regeneration
This ability allows humans to heal themselves from injuries. However, note that all injuries cannot be healed. A large wound can cause a person to bleed out before they can heal themselves in time. Also, this does not allow your character to be invincible. When they are shot, they had better act like they've been shot (I.e: falling over and screaming, crying, etc, and staying that way for a bit) and they should not simply get hit and move on. If I catch your characters doing this I will call you out on it.

- Blood Sucking
The capability to suck another human's blood and shapeshift into them for an hour. To keep from reverting back they must continue to consume blood. They do not gain that person's abilities or their memories.

- Body Possession
Humans with this ability are given the power to possess nearby dead bodies, unless the brain is destroyed. Their real body remains in a sleep state and is not used at all during this process. If their real body is harmed they have the capability to return to it, however, if their brain is destroyed, they are trapped in the corpse puppet, which will rot away from them in time. When they can find no bodies to possess in time they die. If they are in their real bodies and are dying, they have a very short window of time before they are incapable of passing to another body.

- Telekinesis
The capability to move objects without touching them. The user cannot move things which weigh too much for them to physically lift on their own. Moving several things at a time takes immense concentration on the part of the user.

- Telepathy
The capability to communicate with other human's via the mind. Telepathy users can telepathically shout into the head of another human, causing large amounts of pain. The amplification of the shout is much louder than a human's voice, but the human can only keep it up for as long as they could have physically shouted. Users with this ability are very physically strong and fast.

- Pain Transfer
A wounded human is given the ability to transfer their pain into another human. However, this only transfers pain. It does not actually transfer the wound and the user can still die. This also works with sickness and the symptoms can be transferred, although the actual pathogens cannot be.

- Black Production
A strange ability which corrupts the physical body and covers it in deformities and abnormalities and the ability to absorb emotions and convert then into proteins which allow them to grow tentacles, claws, fangs, and other gruesome creatures. Humans with this ability are often subject to severe mold swings, food cravings, and periods of extreme weakness when not using their powers. Users with this ability often have grayish skin, jet black eyes that leak black fluids constantly, and prominent black veins that run throughout their body and are visible through the skin. Their hair also tends to fall out.

- Unique
You must ask me personally if you may have this ability. This ability is extremely rare among humans and it seems that only one in every million people may have it. The ability which they have is different from all the others and could practically be anything. You must already have a character made with another one of the abilities before you can have one with this ability. That way I know how you RP and can decide if I should allow you this ability. If I deny you the ability to use this power, please do not be offended or get upset. I will only allow people I think are qualified to have this power have it. And I will also deny any unique power that I think does not fit the style of the RP or is overpowered or cliche (basically no fire or ice wielding lads).

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Rules
1. No godmodding, meta-gaming, power playing, autoing, etc. If you don't know what these are then please read the stickies in the RP section.
2. Absolutely no overpowered characters. Do not kill other peoples' characters without their permission. And no scenes where your character goes and kills a million people with ease and doesn't suffer a scratch. In other words no instant kills (unless it's necessarily, like a bullet to the head).
3. Absolutely no Mary-Sue characters. Or their male counterpart the Gary-Stu.

4. This is a literate RP. A least one paragraph per post. I will be lenient in some situations when there isn't much to post. But that's it. Use proper grammar and spelling.

5. I reserve the right to kill your characters for any reason whatsoever. I will use this as a disciplinary tool. If you begin to godmod or powerplay your character will be killed. I will also kill off Mary-Sue characters. If you go inactive I will allow you some time. If you don't come back I'll kill your characters to explain their absence in the story.

6. As stated above, this will be a very gory and violent RP. Mature themes will be used. People will die. If you can't handle this, please do not enter.

7. The use of cursing is allowed. Just don't make that the only dialogue in your posts. I get quite annoyed when people make their characters say only curse words and no actual dialogue.

8. You will not post in the IC until I have accepted your sheets.

9. I reserve the right to deny any sheet for any reason whatsoever.

10. Respect your fellow RPers please and please recognize that I am the GM (Game Master) and I have a planned plot for this RP. I will steer the story in the direction I have planned and would appreciate it if you did not Spotlight your own characters. Also, please no subplots. Let's all stick to the same main plot for simplicity and cooperation. I may make a few exceptions but that will be a rare thing.

11. No OOC talk on the IC thread.

12. Planning is essential to this kind of RP. This is not a wing-it RP. This is not an RP for pantser writers (writers who just write, no planning ahead or structure whatsoever). We need structure to this story and that will be done OOC side. Please do not suddenly spring up some unexpected thing that messes up the plot. Please plan ahead of time and please communicate with your fellow RPers. Now withholding spoilers is ok, just don't hold back anything that's important to everyone else's course.

13. No stereotypical villains. Your character can be somewhat twisted or bad, sure. But no cliche villains. Besides, I will control any and all major villains in the story. Any villains that you create will have to be lesser ones. For tips on creating villains see the below thread. Also for advice on really any other RP topic possible, please see that thread as well.

The Glorious Roleplay Thread of Roleplay

14. The story starts in a town near the shores in Virginia that is under attack by a militia of rebel Demigods.

15. If you have read these rules, please type "Dust & Shadow" into the "Key" section of the entry application. Thank you.

Okay, I might sound ridiculous asking, but in the United States, do the suppressive drugs people take also prevent the physical warping caused by the black production, at least if people are put on it in early stages? I'm trying to write character appearance, but I don't know if they should start normal and gradually lose their looks, or have them full-blown deformed at the very beginning. If deformed, they'll be that person who always wears clothing (Plus a mask, despite the social taboo) to cover the majority of their person.

Yes it stops the warping, but at the early stages.

Okay, here is my character sheet.

Basics


Name: Vivienne (Vivi) Longwood
Age: 22
Sex: Female
Faction: Demigod: Black Production

Family/Friends/Pets/Etc: Vivienne retains a strong connection via phone to her mother and father, but other than this, she has no other family aside from a female pure-white angora rat with red eyes, named Cotton, which she keeps as a pet.


Physical Description

Height: 5’5”
Weight: 98lbs.
Hair Description: Blonde (Suppressive Medication)/ None
Eye Appearance: Blue (Suppressive Medication)/ Pure Black Pupil, Sclera, and Iris

Physical Appearance: Vivienne, for the most part, would look like a normal young woman, perhaps seeming younger than her real age, if not for the fact that she displays mild symptoms that indicate her identity as a black production ‘demigod’. Her skin, which was already as pale as porcelain, has developed a faint greyish tint, and while not prominent, any blood veins that were already visible previously now circulate blood that is a disturbing black color. Because of this, she often seems alien or corpse-like to others, because even her tongue, lips, and gums have turned grey, almost as though she were lacking life. Her body type, overall, is very thin and slender, and lacks any form or fashion of weight. She has neither an abundance of fat nor muscle. Despite the fact that she takes suppressive drugs, Vivienne is unusual in that she intentionally shaved off her hair, so that it has only grown out to about an inch in length, with no particular style. When asked why, she states that blonde hair makes her skin look even more freakish because of the color contrast, and that, if the suppressive drugs fail to keep her from losing her hair; she would rather not care about such thing, and shave her head anyway. Without a doubt, if Vivienne were to lose access to the suppressive medication, she would develop very hideous deformities all over her body.

Typical Clothing/Attire: Vivienne appears to wear clothing in an attempt to make herself appear less unsightly and frightening. Generally, this means that she wears long-sleeved attire regardless of weather, as well as pants and socks that are of darker colors. Most often, regardless of the shirt or dark-colored jeans she wears, she has pure-black work shoes that prevent her from slipping on floors, and black socks. She also has a tendency to wear a large zip-up hoodie with long enough sleeves that they have holes for her to slip her thumbs through. Vivienne has carefully added her own alterations to this jacket, adding a large yellow and black pocket on the left side that resembles a caution pattern, which contains a soft black lining. Often, Vivienne’s pet rat will sit inside of this pocket, if it does not attempt to climb up so that is can sit on her shoulder instead.

Equipment/Items: Vivienne often does not carry around much on her person. She usually has a black leather purse that can be slung across the shoulder to rest on her left side. In her purse, she keeps the typical things one might find, along with some objects that might be found somewhat unusual. She generally has a bottle of suppressive drugs in her purse, so that she can take it at regular intervals. Her purse also contains her wallet, which has her ID, driver’s license, credit card, roughly thirty-dollars cash, library card, etc. Vivienne’s purse also contains several food items. She generally carries several granola bars of different flavors and kinds, and she also has a Ziploc bag containing rat food, which is additionally mixed with small pieces of different kinds of cereal. For some bizarre reason, she also carries around a pack of seaweed wraps, normally used for making sushi, although this is apparently because she generally craves seaweed, despite its overall horrible taste by itself. She also has a bottle of pepper spray inside of her right pant pocket designed so that it can be used extremely fast once removed from its storage space (Contains several variants of tear gas and a UV dye), since she cannot use her powers to protect herself; not that anyone would attack her.


Personality/Attributes



Personality: Vivienne is generally far more positive and friendly in an outward fashion than what she actually feels. Because she could not stop the progression of her black production before she developed symptoms, Vivienne possesses black blood, rather than the normal bright red color of an average human being. This gives all of her tissues a grey or black tint, and makes her look freakish by most standards (Except other people who are black producers, but generally, this is more because they are sympathetic). Vivienne is often alienated because of the way she looks, even though most people who know about her condition are aware that it could be far worse than just grey pigmentation. Because of her social rejection, Vivienne generally has trouble making real friends, despite her best efforts to interact and be nice to others. Often, people will judge her before she even talks to them.

Vivienne, in reality, is not as cheerful as she may act. She often feels on the verge of an emotional meltdown, and often experiences intense feelings of loneliness. There is also a large degree of anger, that people would judge her in such a shallow fashion, despite the fact that she is taking suppressive medication. She often justifies her anger with the statement that while she must suffer black blood and strange, physical deformities, there are other people who can get away with being mistaken for normal, all because their bodies don’t really change in a physical manner. She greatly envies people that are from different ‘demigod’ variants. Her negative feelings often manifest in secretly mistrustful thoughts towards people, and a reluctance to work with them, or betray any sort of secret that she personally has. Despite this, Vivienne is incredibly loyal, and will hold any secrets that people tell her, taking them seriously. Being very business-minded, Vivienne can be aggressive regarding any sort of role of authority she is placed under, often frowning upon people who might volunteer for leadership roles simply for the prestige of a title. Vivienne often takes any responsibility she has seriously, despite her strong emotional conflictions (She has mood swings, but it might not just be because of her abilities).

Despite her many negative aspects, Vivienne is actually very sweet and kind as a person, generally more shy than antisocial, despite an overall presence of bitterness and feigned optimism. Her pet rat, Cotton, is clearly a domesticated fancy rat, because white rats with red eyes are relatively rare in the wild, as are rats with extremely long, silky hair, as Cotton is an angora-type rat. Vivienne is rarely seen without her pet, and treats her with an incredible amount of love and care, as Cotton is extremely gentle and has been reputed for never biting a person. Vivienne is also known to assist people even if not asked, although generally, she is self-effacing and does not care for people spreading news about her good deeds. For the most part, she is a quiet observer, and is very intelligent because she prefers to listen, rather than speak.

Skills/Talents: Vivienne is very skilled in regards to the subjects of biology, chemistry, pharmaceuticals, and physics. This is something she has possessed a talent for since a young age, spanning long before she performed research to learn about her own abilities and symptoms as a black producer. With the knowledge of these different subjects, Vivienne has little trouble with science-related fields, and can even apply this information in the field, applying her biology knowledge to diagnose illness or injury, as well as to identify deadly poisons or useful medications. She is capable of treating various ailments because she is capable of identifying the proper ingredients in drugs to combat symptoms or disease, although she does not work in a pharmacy that distributes the suppressive drugs for ‘demigods’. She may also use her chemistry knowledge for more off-handed purposes, such as mixing chemicals to create a battery, or potentially a deadly explosive. This in mind, though, she generally doesn’t carry the things to make anything with her. She is relatively talented with most animals, although this skill is nothing spectacular; she's just good with pets. She is also skilled at sketching.

Likes/Dislikes: Vivienne generally dislikes being observed or discriminated against for her appearance, and she also dislikes people stereotyping rats as ‘filthy vermin’, especially when her beloved pet Cotton spends roughly a third of her time grooming. Less severe dislikes include a certain hatred of hot or arid weather, and extremely bright light. She also cannot stand the taste of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, for whatever reason. She seems to dislike peanuts, overall, even though she shows no signs of a peanut allergy. She also refuses to eat summer squashes, which include yellow squash and zucchini, etc.

Strengths/Weaknesses: Vivienne as a black generator generally has powers that come with strengths and weaknesses that are already known. With suppressive medication, she cannot use her abilities, but without it, she will be able to use her powers, which involve the frightening power to produce proteins via absorbing emotional energy, in order to grow claws, tentacles, fangs, and many other freakish kinds of appendages from her body. Such a strong power can be used to deadly effect, especially if an enemy cannot predict what Vivienne were planning to do with her abilities, but it also comes with horrible drawbacks. Vivienne’s already somewhat-unstable emotions would become severe and perhaps frightening mood swings, and she would suffer periods of extreme hunger or cravings for bizarre foods. When not using her powers, she might experience times where she becomes painfully weak, although the cause is not certain. In addition to all these problems, it is also possible for her to simply become worn out, just like any creature with physical limitations.

Her appearance also makes it impossible for her to completely hide what her abilities are, and comes with the terrible fate of developing hideous deformities all over her body, in addition to her already-black blood veins becoming morbidly visible through her skin, her eyes turning pure black and weeping black tears constantly (Which might be troublesome for sight and sanitary purposes), and the fact that she might become completely hairless, as well.

Hobbies/Interests: Vivienne appears to have interest in becoming a pharmacist, but overall, her main hobbies appear to revolve around animal behavior and training, as her pet rat Cotton is trained, and knows various tricks and commands, having been taught by her owner. In most cases, if an animal is some sort of domestic species, Vivienne, regardless if her appearance is found frightening by the animal or not, generally is able to work with it. She is sometimes regarded as being better with animals than with people. She also enjoys doing sketches of wildlife in her spare time.

Religion/Beliefs: Vivienne is a non-denominational Christian, although her beliefs lean towards that of a Baptist. Like any human being, she struggles in having any sort of faith that would surpass a mustard seed in size (For reference, mustard seeds are probably less than a millimeter in diameter). She fears death, not so much because of a doubt that she won’t be saved (not that this is nonexistent), but because death always seems horrible, regardless of what form it comes in. If it is slow, a person might be able to say goodbye to those they care about, but they feel pain as it happens. If it is swift, then it shocks the people that are left behind. She generally accepts, however, that a human body is a mortal one, and that a human must die at some point in their life. She has never considered her abilities as a black generator to make her immortal, and even considers that they might be responsible for killing her, even if she is on suppressive drugs, viewing the status as a ‘demigod’ as a disease, just as the United States has encouraged its citizens to view it.

Despite her struggles, Vivienne makes an active effort to follow Christian beliefs, and is not afraid to confess to faults in her character such as pride, anger, and other negative things. She also tries to be accepting of others, regardless of what they are like. In general, she is a much better person because her beliefs encourage her to think in a moral fashion.

Education/Training: Vivienne has gone into deep debt in order to learn pharmaceuticals through an online college program, overall, she has one year left before she obtains a bachelor’s degree, having had to take occasional breaks in order to look for work so she can still have a reasonable living, which is extremely hard to come by (Because even if people aren’t supposed to, they’ll pick a worker that has a regular appearance over the girl who has grey skin).

Home Description: Vivienne’s modest home is the bare minimum of what would be considered a house. It’s a very small, cramped apartment with two rooms, having a lower value despite the higher number of rooms due to the location being in a bad part of town, and the fact that the house has an unusual layout, such as the bedrooms connecting to the kitchen through the laundry room, etc. It is also severely dated in regards to the appliances, and half the time the water is freezing cold; and Vivienne doesn’t even have a working dishwasher or dryer. These issues result in doorjambs being hung with wet laundry to dry, and Vivienne having to wash all of her dishes by hand. In addition, the white cabinets, linoleum, and doors have gone so long without paint that they have an aged, yellowish color that looks horrible, overall.  The only nice thing about the home is that it is for the most part neatly organized, and well-cleaned. One room serves as Vivienne’s bedroom, while the other acts as a workplace/guest room.

Occupation: Vivienne is a part-time college student working towards a pharmaceutical degree, and also has a night-shift job at a local warehouse, responsible for keeping track of goods and what needs to be shipped out to various stores in the local area.

PostSubject: Re: Little Light of Mine (OOC)   Mon Mar 16, 2015 8:46 am

This looked so cool I couldn't help but make a sheet on the spot.


Basics

Name: Jacques August Callon

Alias: "Chop Shop Jacques"

Age: 31

Sex: Male

Faction: Demigod

Family/Friends/Pets/Etc: Jacques has a "dear ol' Ma" he keeps in contact with over the internet. Aside from that, he is friends with/employs two fellow engineers: William (full time) and Stacy (part time) and owns a scruffy tomcat called Olaf.

Power: Telekinesis.


Physical Description

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 171 lbs

Hair Description: Jacques has a thick mop of greasy black hair with a short ponytail at the back to keep most of it out of his face as he works. He also has an unkempt, thin beard and sideburns.

Eye Appearance: Jacques' eyes have bright yellow iris', a curious oddity which is explained away as a side effect of the sickness.

Physical Appearance: With crooked teeth, swarthy, slightly pock-marked skin and a long, hooked nose, Jacques isn't what you'd call good-looking. His hands are stained black with grease and soot which no amount of hand cleaner has been able to completely get rid of. His tall stature is marred by his slight stoop as well as his odd, jerky walk (caused by an old knee injury).

Typical Clothing/Attire: In his work gear, Jacques wears a stained navy blue jumpsuit fitted with many pockets. For more casual wear, he sports thick cargo pants, a various assortment of vests, shirts and a large trenchcoat, fitted with yet more pockets. His hands usually have fingerless knitted gloves on while his footwear consists of thick woolly socks and heavy leather boots with steel caps.

Equipment/Items: Jacques carries around a myriad of things, such as:
His magnetic omnitool (think sonic screwdriver, but lowtech and not as useful outside of fixing things)
Wallet
Photos of his Ma
A small amount of solder
Reading glasses
A notebook
Several pens (he always says they run out on him at the worst times)
A coaster signed by some famous person (he can't exactly remember who as the signature is faded and unfamiliar)
Cat treats.

He also owns a battered old ute upgraded with current automobile technology as well as a newer commercial business van for out of town jobs.


Personality/Attributes

Personality: Despite his looks, Jacques is a very light-hearted person. He is keen to crack a joke and gets along well with most people, even if they don't get along with him. This disarming personality means it is somewhat easy for him to make friends once they get past his scruffy, loutish appearance. However when something irks or angers him he can quickly change mood and is known to carry long, harsh grudges. He prefers blunt language but refrains from swearing much around unfamiliar company in case this puts off those in present company.

Skills/Talents: As a businessman, Jacques has a knack with mathematics especially when it comes to payment. He is a whizz with machinery, specifically the various types of drones used in everyday life. His interactions with AI make him somewhat adept at hacking.

Likes/Dislikes: Jacques is fond of cats and birds, enjoys messing with AI and tinkering with components as well as a good laugh. He is also an avid metalhead. He actively enjoys using his abilities whenever possible because they make his and other people's lives easier in small ways.

He dislikes dogs (especially large ones), people messing with his employees and going back on a deal. He also hates the idea of suppression drugs and its associated media, leading him to have a deep sense of distrust with government officials that monitor registered Demigod activities.

Strengths: Positive outlook (most of the time), tech savvy. Jacques' telekinesis power is also very technical, allowing him to while concentrating disassemble complex objects and put them back together with ease.

Weaknesses: Unskilled in combat, can be dim at times, opinions over suppression drugs can make him a target for extremist groups, telekinesis weaknesses. Jacques telekinesis is rather poor when attempting to manipulate large, cumbersome objects, sometimes even failing to make them budge.

Hobbies/Interests: On his days off (which can be anytime, he's his own boss), Jacques likes to go on strolls around the town, enjoys metal detecting along the beach and bird watching. He also takes part in fighting drone tournaments, in which his drone "Klawglock" is a crowd favourite.

Religion/Beliefs: Jacques is agnostic about religion, but is generally open about discussions concerning them. As for beliefs, he is strongly against the use of suppression drugs, believing them to be how the government stunts Demigods out of fear and has many suspicions over possibilities of tracking chemicals, truth serums and even poisons being mixed in. He is very vocal about this.

Education/Training: Jacques was home schooled by his Ma and received an apprenticeship in mechanics at an early age. He is able to read and write, but gets confused with long words and has difficulty spelling sometimes.

Home Description: Jacques lives in the apartment above his business. It's a small place, made even smaller by the large stacks of parts he can't fit into the shop itself. Because the rooms lack the space for a proper bed he sleeps on the couch, but always boasts that its the most comfy couch he's ever come across. He sometimes complains that the pea green wall colour is driving him mad and that the radiator keeps him up at night unless he hits it in the right spot. The garage itself is located on the edge of the seedy part of town, where he gains equal employ from innocent and more dubious customers.

Occupation: Jacques is a drone mechanic and parts salesman. He maintains a small back alley repair business known as "Jacques' Chop Shop" where he is somewhat known for his reliability, low rates and tight lips.


Key: Dust and Shadow

(tfw extreme writer's block with Jaakuna Ishi but I beat this out in an hour)

EDIT: I put a bit more meat into some of the sections and edited a few things I was erring about.
