    Siphon-- A Rune Dragon rp.

    Post  Guest on Sun Jul 29, 2012 2:26 am



    30 years ago...

    There was war. Rune dragons and their bearers were severed, their bond thought to be a perversion of nature that had to be cleansed. Humans weren't meant to have magic, weren't meant to do this, and the two species should go their separate ways. During these trying times, creatures once thought to be nothing more than myths were found-- the Ancients, living embodiments of elements such as the seasons and suns, even things like death and chaos and time itself. It was learned that the Ancient of Chaos himself was behind it all, instigating the war because he believed Eldemore to be growing stagnant and static, things he said went against the very nature of existence. But in the end, he relented, and the attacks were ended. Eldemore entered a period of peace where the world simply tried to rebuild, bonds were re-established, and Runes could be free again.

    It wouldn't last.


    Present Day.

    Something strange is happening in Eldemore. No one knows just how long the cult has existed, though it seems to have been around for at least five years. They worship an entity known only as Sovereign, and say that he is they key to their salvation. This cult is mostly made up of those who were around during the war, and actually agreed that the people of Eld relied too heavily on magic, and that it should be done away with.

    While they do little more than preach their beliefs to others, there has been a disturbing discovery-- magic is, indeed, growing weaker in the world. Rune dragons, even bonded ones, are having trouble using their powers any more, and the youngest ones are even beginning to die off. Worse still, the seasons seem to be... changing. Snow in August, burning heat in December. Only their summoners know that even Ancients are beginning to feel the effects of this loss of magic, and if something is not done soon, even the greatest forces of nature themselves might fall.

    There is hope, though. Humans are not as affected by this loss, and they have technology on their side. Some bonded Rune dragons can still use their magic, and there are rumors of a few rare individuals with the ability to call upon their own powerful magics without the aid of a Rune dragon, people who don't even seem to be fully human...



    Plot.

    So this is going to work a bit different than usual, in that there will be specific time limits in which a scene must be finished. And, unless you were involved with the creation, you won't know exactly all of what's going on >D The only information I'll give right now is this: Something is stealing the magic of Eldemore, causing Runes to die off and Ancients to lose their powers. The only ones who can still really use magic are some very old bonded Runes, and a very rare number of people who aren't even fully human at all-- these people are the children of a Ancient and their summoner. It's up to these hybrids and any humans brave enough to rise to the call to find out what is going on, and bring balance back to the world.

    Rules.




    • 1. Literacy requirements. You should be able to spell properly (or at least use a spell-checker), use proper grammar, and try to match the average post length-- preferably, one paragraph per character you play as.
    • 2. Ancients. This roleplay includes spots for children of Ancient Rune dragons and their summoners ('hybrids', unless someone has a better name xD). Age shouldn't be a problem, considering the timespan. Spots for these characters will only be open to those who have their own Ancient, or obtain permission to use an Ancient/Summoner pair from someone who owns one. These slots are also very limited. Please note, only summoner/Ancient pairs that are male/female can qualify, since... well, biology xD.
    • 3. Powers. Very simple-- if you are bonded to a Rune, your character's power is derived from what the Rune can do. If you're not, then you have no magic. If you are a hybrid, you can use magic without a Rune, and the power should be something similar *but not the same, of course* as what the Ancient parent has.
    • 4. Character limits: Everyone may only have one character at the moment (rune dragons do not count). This may be increased later on. Please note, all characters must be approved before play.
    • 5. Other basics. No Godmodding/power playing, no Sues/Stus, don't go ridiculously overboard with violence/swearing/romance.
    • 6. Rules are subject to change at any time. This is just because Shepard is a derp and often forgets things xD

    Username:
    Commander Shepard

    Character Name:
    Calliope (often goes by Cali).

    Age:

    20

    Personality:
    Cheery is one word that can definitely describe Calliope. She's never felt out of place amongst her adopted family, and she has taken their morals very close to heart-- show only kindness, even in the face of adversity. Always help those in need, and always make sure to earn your keep, never make yourself a burden on anyone else. She definitely sticks to those last couple, even at her own expense-- she is a stubborn individual (unsurprising, considering her parents), and unless she feels she's covered every other possible option, she will adamantly refuse help even if it results in her getting hurt somehow.

    Cali also seems to see the need for change in life, even if it's highly unpleasant, and arguing that upheaval and misery are completely unnecessary to life is one of the few surefire ways to truly anger her. She is also somewhat vain, and calling her anything along the lines of... freak or mutant will set her off.

    Appearance:
    (Any images used MUST be linked.)
    History:
    There was never supposed to be a child.
    By the time Gabriella and Nyarlathotep realized what their union had wrought, it was too late to do much of anything but figure out what they would do once the child was born. They immediately discounted the idea of keeping it-- they both knew they were completely unfit as parents, and it certainly wouldn't be fair to the child to be forced into a place where it was unwanted. Neither could they simply send the child to an orphanage, to suffer such a hellish life where they would simply be left alone; and besides, they could both guess that their child wouldn't be... normal. In the end, with only a short time to spare, Gabriella found a traveling family and spoke to them. They agreed to raise the child, no matter what oddities they might display. As soon as she had recovered from the birth, Gabby left-- she didn't even see her child, didn't leave so much as a suggestion for a name. As far as she was concerned, it wasn't her place any more.

    The gypsies, however, took great care of the newborn girl, naming her Calliope and raising her as if she were any other child. Calliope was never made aware of the circumstances of her birth (and even then, the family had never actually been told that she was a hybrid, just that her mother couldn't take care of her, and that the girl might be a bit... unusual), and she certainly felt no desire to ask. She was too busy playing with other kids and the Gypsy Runes, reveling in stories about the Ancients and the war that occurred only thirty years ago, and trying out her powers. While some of the other children had limited magic, and only if they were bonded with a Rune dragon, Cali could perform a number of impressive feats, which only increased as she grew. They also noticed that things seemed to just... change, in her presence. Ordinary rocks would become precious gems, them hop away as insects. Clothing would change color at random, or objects would simply vanish, only to reappear in odd locations.
    Any notable skills and/or failings?

    Username:
    Ashenjay

    Character Name:
    Jay

    (Just go with jay DB< For convenience...)

    Age:
    16 years old

    Personality:



    Appearance:
    Dark brown hair which is medium length and neither curly or straight, gray eyes, and olive skin. She is 5"4 and is still growing. She doesn't look haughty or intimidating, nor shy; just a very average girl who is on the cheerful side.

    History:
    Both her parents(Jayna's mother is Arossi, whoa o3o) were rune bearers, and during the hard times runes and their bearers were facing they didn't really want their daughter to be a bearer too...because that would be very hard.

    However Jayna ended up meeting Faloin, and becoming bonded. Her parents were startled and unhappy, and extremely worried at first- but then, realizing that she needed much help related to runes, they taught her much about the dragons, their magic, etc.

    Then, the rune of Jayna's father died; like many of the runes these days, and he became sad, angry, confused- and Jayna couldn't stand watching her father becoming so different from what she knew of him. Besides, she was terrified for the fate of her own dragon, Faloin, and wanted to find somewhere safe and protect her.

    Leaving her mother who told her to do whatever she wanted as long as she was happy and safe with her father, Jayna left with her bonded rune. She doesn't have an exact 'plan' of course; she just wishes that she will find a day when rune bearers and runes will all be safe from the mysterious era of darkness that seems to severe their connections.

    Any notable skills and/or failings?
    Thanks to her parents who knew well about dragons, she knows much about rune dragons(quite obviously).
    She seems to have good insight when she meets people.
    She has good navigational abilities (and yes, can read a map o3o).


    Runes:
    Faloin
    The Shimmer Rune; a young and rather immature and mischievous dragon who loves anything shiny. She can't really tell the difference between 'stealing' and 'finding' her wares.

    Bonded Rune?
    Faloin, look above~

    Other:
    HUGE WIP, I REFRESHED THE WHOOOOOLE THING!
    Nadja's powers were too vague...I thought Faloin would make a more interesting RP dragon. I feel guilty for Nadja, but...

    Username:
    Benathorn
    Character Name:
    Aiden
    Age:
    23
    Personality:
    Aiden is a more respectful and reserved individual than his boastful father. He takes after his mother in this, and is in tune with the world around him. Aiden was taught by Thorn that magic flows through everything and passes through humans as a filter to be cleansed and reused. A never ending cycle, which is now beginning to wain, Thorn simply says that the world always finds a solution to it's problems and that the solution are hybrids. Aiden is a very sharp individual but even he has a hard time understanding his mother's wisdom in this. He is not blind to what he is and accepts his difference with ease. What does bother him is that others do not, and constantly insist that a dragon and a human should never breed. Such nonsense really, when hybrids are now the only creatures able to both use and filter the magic of Eldemore, while everything else fades.

    Though Aiden shows more restraint in his actions than Numair, he has indeed inherited some factors that are his fathers. He is headstrong at times and will often not care to listen to another's opinion. Believing his magic is often superior and can always get the job done, Aiden is a bit prideful at times, and would rather do things his way. Although he does have a good deal of patience he is not afraid to voice his dislike for things and his pride often times prevents him from admitting when he is wrong. He does know his faults though, and is always trying to temper them with understanding and great patience like his mother teaches, but he is still young and youth always has a hard time learning.

    Appearance:
    Aiden is 6'2" tall with a dark complexion and is very lean with sharp looks. Though his skin is lighter than his father's, he still appears as if he spends most his days out in the sun. His hair is a dark raven color with a single strand of silver going through it and long bangs. Eyes are a soft green with flecks of gold, this may be the only trait in which he shares with his mother, and also the only thing which gives him a human appearance. What does make him stand apart from most humans are his markings. like most Ancients who take on a human form, Aiden has markings which line his face and other parts of his body. They are gold and will shine when he uses magic. They outline his eyes, chin, and arms mostly, and are the tall tale sign that he is not mortal.

    Aiden often wears loose clothing to allow for easy movement. Common pants and a loose fitting shirt is what he wears as well as leather leggings, boots, vest, and arm guards. He was taught to always be ready for a fight and Aiden prefers to be quick in his actions. All in all he is very easy on the eyes and quite the individual. He often carries with him a single sword and two boot daggers. Aiden is lean and swift in his fighting style so he prefers weapons that are the same. Although, when it comes down to it he will fight with his dragon claws and devastating time magic.

    Aiden's Ancient form is much like his fathers as well. Although being a hybrid does limit his ability to transform, Aiden's dragon appearance is dark furred with spectral golden wings. He can slip through time effortlessly in this form but like any Hybrid, he must be careful. He can not keep up his form for long and often goes berserk, such are the side effects of having both human and Ancient blood. He can only transform when in dire need and even then he is careful not to do so. A hybrids mind is often overtaken when in such a powerful form and Aiden fears he will lose himself if he transforms into a dragon of legend. No, it is best to rely on his limited time skills and perhaps changing his hands for claws when he has no weapons.

    History:
    Aiden is the child of Thorn and Numair. Two well known individuals who fought in the great wars thirty years ago and who have not aged a day. He has resided at Thorn's cottage for seventeen years, both being birth and raised in the quaint forest home. Aiden was educated in everything having to do with the runes and how the magic of Eldemore works. Thorn made sure that he was well versed in the knowledge of the dragons around them and Aiden is even able to speak with them due to his hybrid birth. He has read through all her journals and marveled at her stories when he was a child. Thorn made sure that her son was well taught in both understanding and communicating with his surroundings.

    While his mother taught him knowledge, his father Numair taught him about magic and fighting. Aiden is the offspring of Time and Space itself so even when he was born he was already creating slips in the universe and throwing the odd toy or two in it's depths. Numair made sure to teach the boy how best to use his abilities even though he could not summon them as often as his father. For Numair being quite selfish and childish, he has grown much during his time with Thorn and has shown a surprising patience with his son. All be it the two constantly get into arguments due to their identical stubborn pride, leaving Thorn to quell their anger and show her unending patience with them.

    Aiden has spent the last six years traveling now and has rarely visited home. He has been sent by Thorn to investigate the disappearance of magic and the new cult is the perfect place to start. He is 23 now and has spent most of his time tracking down cult members and extracting information. His methods for gaining this knowledge are less to be desired but what he has learned has spurred him to find who Sovereign is and to try and cope with his hybrid self. The world itself is a living thing and it will always find a solution to live on. Weather the hybrids are this new solution has yet to be seen but the world is indeed losing it's magic, it's living blood, and what the residents of this land do not understand is that if the magic is lost then so too are they as well.

    Any notable skills and/or failings?
    Aiden is proficient at living on his own and in the wilderness. His ability to communicate with Runes has helped him in this as well as his teaching from his parents. However Aiden has terrible people skills since he rarely ever interacted with them. He does not know how to judge another's reaction and will often lash out in frustration if he does not understand their ways of doing things. He is limited in his time magic and can only use them in short bursts. He will often create time slips that will suck his enemies into an abyss or stop time completely if just for a few moments. This drains him however, and he must pick and choose when to use his abilities. His greatest power though, and indeed any hybrids greatest asset, his the ability to transform into an Ancient. This calls forth a great deal of magic and a hybrid must be careful when doing this, for risk of going berserk or insane. They lose themselves in this overwhelming state and can only keep it for so long. Aiden is more weary of this than anything and for good reason, he would much rather just call forth a half transformation; where is simply takes on part of the form but not full. Though he keeps his human appearance he has dragon-like traits as well, such as claws, teeth, and enhanced magic. This form is what makes the hybrids unique all on their own and what they can often rely on most.

    Runes:
    No runes.

    Bonded Rune?
    Being a Hybrid he has no need or want of a Rune Dragon. Although he does get along well with Gadzooks and the dragon will accompany sometimes to watch after him for Thorn.

    I finished my form and added some things that may be helpful to explaining more about the hybrids. If you have any questions just ask but hopefully everything in the form is relatively ok for now. I may go back and edit some things later and fix any errors. Look forward to the RP's on here! ^_^

    Well that's a good sign that his character is good. ^^
    Seriously, it took me quite a few hours to even figure out what to write but I hope he comes across as believable and with a touch of both his parents traits. :3

    Username:
    soulBridge

    Character Name:
    Corridor (can be called "Corr")

    Age:
    19

    Personality:
    Basic outer Personality
    Voices his opinions--a lot.
    Never really the one to reason with.
    Indifferent to most things.
    Has anger management issues.
    Finds fault with most things.
    Does not apologize for anything he does.
    Tries to allieviate panic and disorder (hates disorder)
    Underlying Personality
    Wants his opinions to be understood and tolerated.
    Tries to become a better person (but things that infuriate him get in the way)
    Is caring in the sense that he does whatever he can in the most subtle way
    possible.

    Appearance:
    He is of average height, and has a bit of a farmer's tan. He is fairly skinny, but has meat--he isn't scrawny. He has short, cropped hair that is easy to mess up, which makes him self-conscious about his hair. His hair is a light brown with some white highlights, and his eyes are a bluish-hazel. A strange mix of colors, but they work out in a strange way that makes it very intriguing to look at.
    He usually wears a simply designed, loose t-shirt and jeans, but on the occasion will don a tie.

    History:
    Corridor lived in an average home in the average city, with the average family, the average life, the average set of household beliefs and code of conduct. When he was younger, he was surrounded by runes, with the Spark runes and other runes his family members had bonded with. He was jealous of his family, as they had special runes to call their companions. He had longed for the day he could go out with his father to hopefully find a rune that he could call his own companion.
    He had an older sister. She was a sweet, kind young adult, but delighted in tormenting her younger brother. She teased him for his hair color, which she dubbed "Touch of Old man" for the white highlights, and also let her slightly mischevious rune "play with him." At first, he was oblivious to the teases, only getting upset at getting hurt physcially.
    Soon, as he grew older, his sister didn't tease him as much, but allowed her bonded rune to "play." They used to be play-fights, but had grown into emotional breakdowns for Corridor.
    Her rune was capable of telekinesis, and was quite good at it too. One day, the rune led him outside in the backyard and motioned Corridor to come at it. As he charged toward the rune, all of a sudden, he was in the air, only to be dropped to the grass. He dusted himself, and charged again, but once again was lifted up to be dropped to the grass. This trick repeated itself, and when Corridor looked up to face the rune after being dropped 8 times, he could see the glint in the rune's eyes, mocking him.
    He bolted toward his house and locked himself in his room for the rest of the day. Since then, he decided that he would never bond with a rune.

    He grew up, and tensions with his sister was still there, but after that day had to watch her rune carefully, in case the rune ever played tricks on her brother again. Corridor went through school, and was scorned because of the fact he had no rune to call his companion. He hardened in his school years, becoming quicker to fury and becoming increasingly difficult to reason with as he became involved in more arguements. His parents had tried to help him, but he shunned their help, preferring to let his rage boil inside him.
    As he took up a small job in town, word spread that magic was getting weaker in the world. Everyone started panicking, wondering what to do. His old classmates's runes started dying off, or getting weaker, and everywhere, there seemed to be discord. He couldn't care less about there being no more magic, but he did mind there being disorder.
    Recently he offered his services to find out what's happening, but only because there's too much disorder, not because he cares about the fate of magic in Eld.

    Any notable skills and/or failings?
    You could say that his skill is making decisions. No matter how bad or how good his decision may be, he doesn't dawdle. At least it gets things done... He can also navigate, using the stars to know where he's going. At least that's one thing he learned when he was at school.
    His failings would be the fact he can't use any weapons whatsoever. He can attempt to, but he would inevitably fail, therefore making him vulnerable.

    Runes: None. He says he can live without magic.

    Bonded Rune? Yet again, none. It doesn't matter to him. He can live without a rune. And he doesn't need a bonded rune at that.

    Other: None.

    Hey all! I think I'm going to introduce Matteo this time around, since Sophie is in the past in this timeline.

    Edit: Added a link to a picture of Matteo, for those interested in seeing him rendered.


    Username:
    maluruloki
    Character Name: Matteo Fitzpatrick Marchand
    Age: 24 years.
    Personality: Matteo is the second oldest of five children altogether within the Marchand family. His personality leans towards the type of attention-getter that succeeds and then annoys you a bit. It stems from being shuffled to the side once his younger siblings came about. He talks a bit louder than necessary and you can’t ignore him in a room even when he’s standing still and just listening; he exudes presence. Within a discussion, he must say what he’s thinking, whether you like it or not. He tends to ignore most insults that come about from his input, but only to a point. If you ask him to do something, he might do it; tell him to and he’ll passively ignore you. When he’s in action, he will get the job done regardless of the body count. He has an innate way of succeeding at his task, but it gives him a merciless feel when he accepts that people will get hurt. However, he’s fully aware of every death he had any part in and wishes that he could forget them all; it gives him night sweats. He doesn’t like deep relationships, but it’s that kind of denial where it’s a slippery slope and suddenly he’s your best friend and he’ll do anything to protect you. Within his group of friends, he becomes a pretty cool “big brother” type.
    Appearance:
    Matteo and Muse
    Just under 6’2” with a body that leaned out once he decided to become the leader of his little gang. He has scruffy brown-blonde hair with natural highlights from the sun and grey eyes; goatee on face. You can see that his muscles are wiry, so he’s not a body builder. Once he entered his gang years, he lost his clean-cut look to build up his reputation. He wears a dark-brown jacket lined with cream-colored sheep’s wool that zips up the front. Dark pants are always worn, but he hates how they’re almost worn bare in both knees. He wears a hand-me-down pair of military boots that he “borrowed” from an open window-sill. Both ears are pierced up the outside multiple times; his left ear is missing a piece from it where a rival’s bullet just barely missed the rest of his head and if he ever took off his jacket and shirt, you’d see some bullet scars on his left arm. He always wears a newsboy cap, whether it’s warm or not, to hide his ear. His money pouch/small bag is always at his belt.
    History: Matteo comes from a rather large family with four other siblings, so he has worked since he was rather young to keep everyone fed. While many other children grow up spending most of their day in school, it was rather rare for Matteo to spend more than a few hours with his nose in a book before he was excused to go to his job; well, he didn’t necessarily have his nose in his book, but at least he was present and accounted for. He had a penchant for getting yelled at over anything else, but his teacher was happy with his math and geography skills.
    Matteo has held many random jobs throughout the years, including accountant, assistant chef, concierge, chimney sweeper, cat sitter, and shoe seller. The easiest, by far, is unemployed-but-looking, because that means he can go out and check his traps in the woods. They tend to put more food on his family’s table than some of his jobs. His favorite, however, was working in the weapons factory putting together all sorts of devious devices. It was there that he discovered his love of explosives and basically playing with matches. It has come in very handy during problematic situations with the rival gangs.
    Any notable skills and/or failings?
    Skills: Setting up little traps; destroying things “accidentally” with explosives and fire; fairly good at math and geography; has a rough, street-earned idea of military tactics; can cook fairly well.
    Failings: Huge ego (masks needy feelings); has trouble writing; forgets to return things he “borrowed”; can never throw anything away because “it could be useful”; gun-shy because of ear; impulsive if it means he can “win” in any manner; can’t stand “immaturity”.
    Runes: Muse, the Henna Rune.
    Bonded Rune? None yet.
    Other: Nothing right now.

    Username:
    Ashwyn

    Character Name:
    Amira
    -she often goes by simply Mira-


    Age:
    24

    Personality:
    Mira isn't exactly what you'd think a Hybrid child would be like. For one thing she's rebellious and somewhat pig-headed about the topics that she feels she is right about. Falanon and Kat did their best to raise her as a well-mannered child, but though Mira adores her parents their attempts to teach her never really worked out. Naturally she has inherited traits from both her parents, and the result has made for a rather...strong spirited female.

    From her father she retained his prideful and willful nature, she never backs down from a challenge, and is only too glad to tell others of her parentage and long list of accomplishments. Mira also has an almost....bloodthirsty aspect to her as well, between letting a prisoner go or chopping off his head she'd likely choose the latter. Yet perhaps ruthless is a more apt descriptions rather than bloodthirsty, she simply doesn't tolerate mistakes or stupidity, and punishes both severely. That being said she also inherited both of her parents intelligence, and she is a rather brilliant female. Her mother influenced her slightly less it seems, and Mira did always seem to idolize her father more, but basically in the end she did get her mother strategic mind, intuition, and her intense control of emotions. She also remains very jaded towards men, balks at authority, and doesn't work well with others.

    Essentially Mira can be broken down into several different traits. Either designated as positives or negatives.

    ~Positive~
    *Intelligent
    *Strategic
    *Intuitive
    *Emotional Control

    ~Negative~
    *Prideful
    *Willful
    *Jaded against men
    *Balks at authority

    ~Neither Positive nor Negative~
    *Ruthless

    {I plan on fleshing her out throughout the RP, and will likely edit this as I get a better feel for her.}



    Appearance:
    Mira stands at a decent 5' 4", she has auburn curly hair that hangs to about midway on her back. Her eyes are a deep blue flecked with gold and she has a diminutive stature. As far as physical strength goes, Mira is less than imposing, but she does posses an icy stare that can "burn daggers into your soul", also due to her father's inherent strength, she possesses an uncanny and seemingly unnatural strength, far more than any normal human should have. That being said this extra strength isn't visible on her. And to all appearances she seems to simply be a fair skinned Caucasian girl with auburn curly hair and deep blue eyes.

    History:
    Mira was raised in a fairly quiet town on expansive acreage. Her parents were Falanon, the Toruk Rune Ancient, and Katarina, his summoner. The threesome lived a fairly peaceful life, with Kat and Falon doing their best to raise Amira as an intelligent, independent, and thoughtful female. Of course, on her sixteenth birthday it became apparent that their parenting skills and lessons they had attempted to teach hadn't gone as well as they'd hope. Mira declared her desire to leave the farm to go out into the world on her own. Knowing that this was especially dangerous for the Hybrid child, Kat and Falanon finally revealed her heritage to her. Awestruck and even more excited by this sudden tidbit of news, Mira was quick to declare that everyone should know this fact. Thankfully her parents managed to convince her not to carry out her plan, instead negotiating with her that she stay with them two more years and be taught everything she needed to know about her abilities, her heritage, and what the world had been going through.

    At eighteen she finally left home, still without the complete support of her parents in this venture, but needing to have some freedom of her own. The next three years involved many horrific adventures, some ending with her barely escaping with her life. Needless to say Mira developed a somewhat cynical attitude, along with a ruthlessness that was necessary for her to be able to survive. She managed to attract a 'rough-around-the-edges' group that was fiercely loyal and dedicated to her, a fact that she exploited and used to her advantage when needed. The hardness that she wears like armor around herself has yet to be broken, she seems impervious to most anything, having learned that showing weakness means you will be damaged further. As a result she has yet to let anyone truly into her life and heart. When she had just turned twenty-three disaster struck and an ambush caused her to lose all her loyal followers to death and enslavement, with Mira barely escaping with her life, and now owning a painfully deep wound in her left arm.

    The wound marked the bitterest year of Mira's life, for while it did heal to an extent her left arm will always be painfully weaker than her right, and she is barely even able to hold up a sword with it. Her twenty-fourth birthday has hailed a new and even more dark Mira. With a brooding look about her and a newfound taste for violence, only those who could look inside her mind would ever guess that it all stems from grief, hurt, and the loss of that little girl inside her, the one with fluffy dreams and sweet hopes for the future.


    Any notable skills and/or failings?
    Amira has inhuman strength. As a part of her Ancient heritage she inherited a phenomenal strength. To compare her you could say that she has about the same amount of physical strength as a full grown bull. That being said her left arm's intense injury has left her awkward and ungainly now in physical fights, meaning her huge strength has been weakened to quite an extent as she is, effectively, handicapped.

    A failing would likely be her lack of trust and willingness to work with others. If someone doesn't agree with what she wants to do then she'll leave them and do it her way anyways. There's no such thing as compromise with Mira.

    {Will add more later}


    Runes:
    None

    Bonded Rune?
    None

    Other:
    Super excited for this.

    Diana -also goes by D-
    Age:
    19
    Personality:
    She's shy and hates to talk and will only talk if it's very important. She is willing to do anything but lead, because she is often confused of what to do. She can also be scatter-brained and messy. She often forgets to do things. She's also adventurous and likes to go out and look for interesting things.Very afraid of faliure, she does what she needs to do to the best of her ability, but is very lazy, and wont do it unless it is very crucial.She is also easly distracted by things, and she might babble whle she is talking. She might even be so distracted that she will do the opposite of what she was to be doing.
    Appearance:
    She is of normal height for her age, with sun-kissed skin and simple grey eyes. her hair on the left side is short-cut to her ear- and very messy and tangled. the right side of her hair is long-down to her breasts- with some dark blue highlights. She has varius small scars on her ankles and her arms, and one noticable one right under her left ear.

    She likes wearing simple clothes and none of that frippery. she usually wears short sleved shirts, dyed in natural tones, and long pants. She wears nothing too tight, or too loose. She has many of these, for she likes adventuring around her house.

    Her Accesories are her favorite beaded piano sting necklace. She also carries a messenger bag to hold any important items.
    History:
    She has been cared for carefully by her parents. As an only child she had all that she wanted practically handed to her. She was completely unaware of what has been happening to the runes, as she didnt have one.
    She has been living with her parents until she got the money to live by herself by working in the city at a baking shop.She didnt move far thought, she couldnt, because she was too attached to the forest right outside her home.She's been living a happy life by herself, and she is still working at the bakery shop.She is in school still, hoping to finally pass that school year,because she always seemed to flunk the very last exams. After finally passing the exams (after the third time she took it) she celebrated of course and went to her parents house for the celebration. It was there here she met her rune, Iridesent Murmur.
    And now that she has a rune to call her own, she is finally aware of what was happening to the rune dragons, and hopes to put an end to it.

    Iridesent Murmur
    Rather a hot tempered dragon, she gets angry and irritated easly. She is shy sometimes and crazy.She's a trickster and is unafraid of doing anything.smart and cunning, she can surprise you with anything. Her actions are planned out and every one of her plans, should they fail,has one or two backups.Happy and fun loving, she knows how to get her way. She is very impulsive and knows how to lighten up the mood.

    I would like to know Commander, if you wish to start this RP or if your too busy to do so. You may be very busy as of late and if so I could remake this RP with a different plot but still with my idea of the Ancient Children being used. This was a great idea and I get many asking if this is going to start or not so I thought I would ask you first before doing anything.

    I have spoken with Commander and she has agreed that I may take over this RP and allow it to start. Everyone who is still interested, please post here saying so, so that I may add your character to the list and we can begin within a few days.

    There are limited spots available for this RP.
    In total we are only accepting six or seven roleplayers. There are two hybrids, two Rune Bearers, and two non-rune bearers.
    So far everything is taken as long as I get confirmation from others. Ashwyn has written a form for the last hybrid slot. Ashenjay and Truth have both taken the the Rune bearers. And that leaves two none rune bearers left. Non-rune bearers are those who have not bonded with a rune yet.
