Those Who Live
A Registry for Characters in Perpetual
I'll be fancying this place up soon. In the meantime, if you wish to join, fill out the following profile and post your character(s) here for approval.
Username: This will help keep characters’ owners straight.
Name: The name of your character. Keep it BIONICLE-ish.
Species: Custom species are allowed upon submission for review. Makuta and Karzahni/Artahka’s species are not allowed, at least not without talking to me about it first.
Gender: Obvious field is obvious.
Description: Separate paragraphs for appearance and personality, preferably. If you have a picture for your character, feel free to link to it as opposed to describing them.
Equipment: Your characters primary tools—weapons, doodads that help them do stuff, whatever is their equivalent of a Sonic Screwdriver. Just… equipment stuff.
Mask: Your character’s mask, if he/she has one. Anything but the Avohkii, Kraahkan, Olmak, and Legendary Masks are allowed. The Mask of Emulation and the Tryna will have limited powers because the former has been abused to no end in the past and the latter is somewhat not as useful here, given the circumstances. Custom masks are allowed with approval.
Powers: This covers your character's element and other powers. Anything is allowed, including custom elements, though Time and Life are not (the exception being if you have a power similar to Voporak's time field or Thok’s animation power.)
Vehicle: If your character has a vehicle, describe it—its appearance, its weapons, etc. If you have a picture, you can link to it. Some vehicles are also known to use above-average AI, allowing them to display Rahi-like behavior; if yours has such equipment, describe its personality as well.
Biography: Your character’s past—where he/she is from, whether or not they’ve died at all, all that jazz.
Do remember, as well, that there is no limit on the number of characters you can play. You are limited only by your own ability to handle the ones you create.
[color=#003366;]Species: Toa of Ice.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Description: A Toa of standard height, roughly seven feet tall, Kovian wears light-weight, silver and white armor with crystalline, light blue accents. His white Kanohi Kova, shaped similarly to a Rahkshi helmet, is equipped with a removable telescope that allows him to view the world in several different light spectrum, as well as allowing him to scan individuals to give him select information on them. He wears bladed feet additions that allow him to traverse ice lands and mountains more easily. The Dark Hunter mark is branded onto the back of his right hand, a reminder of his past membership with them. Numerous scars cover Kovian's body, and much of his armor and muscle is noticeably weaker than it used to be, due to having experienced two regenerations. Further, his left arm has been amputated at the shoulder, in an attempt to stop the spread of the resurrection illness.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Kovian is an extremely quiet individual. Having failed to stop Lyxek on Kai-Nam, Kovian feels that much of the current suffering in the universe is his fault; as such, he is very antisocial, going out of his way to avoid other people, in particular his friends and others who try to help him. Known to have been a death seeker even before the Immortal Factor came into play, due to guilt over killing at least two individuals, Kovian is very depressed over his current predicament.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Equipment: Kovian's primary tools--his double-bladed scythe and his shield--were lost several years ago, as was one of his plasma arm blades. As such, his only weapons are a pair of protosteel daggers and the plasma blade on his remaining arm.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Mask: Kanohi Kova, Mask of Chameleon. Acting in the same manner as a Level 6 Kraata of Chameleon, it changes the user's body texture and appearance to match the surrounding area, effectively camouflaging them from all but mental detection or extremely bright light.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Powers: As his species suggests, Kovian can control the element of ice, a power that he has virtually mastered by now. Further, he has secondary control over the element of Sonics, a power granted to him through events on his home island of Exa-Nui. Kovian is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat, though this is made more difficult now by his lack of a left arm.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Vehicle: Kovian pilots a large, red and white motorcycle called the Outlander. Powered by sonic energy, Kovian is able to increase its power and speed by feeding his elemental power over sound into it. The Outlander is equipped with heavy frontal armor and large blades on its front end, allowing it to serve as an effective ram, and can deploy several energy cannons from its sides. A connection cord extends from the back of the driver seat and can be connected to Kovian's personal systems, allowing him to channel his elemental powers through the cannons as well as share his mask power with the vehicle.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Biography: Kovian's life has been one of constant tragedy. Years ago, he was one of the defenders of his home island, Exa-Nui. However, he was corrupted and influenced by Makuta Jaeda, leading to events that culminated in the destruction of the island and the death of several of his former teammates. Leaving as a traveler and outcast, Kovian experienced dozens of horrors around the universe, including his personal slaying of Jaeda a year before Lyxek's plans came to fruition--his next failure. Ever since the Immortal Factor came into play, Kovian has beaten himself up over his failure to stop the Ringmaster, realizing that he and his group had been the only thing standing between Lyxek and Ruaki's resurrection. Ever since that day, Kovian has traveled, drifting from place to place, trapped in his own guilt and despair. In that time, he has been killed and resurrected thrice, with the third resurrection resulting in the loss of his left arm--the starting place of his own decay.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Species: Toa of Plant Life.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Description: Okena stands at the same height as a typical Toa, and has dark green eyes. Unlike most Toa of Plant Life, his armor is brown and dark green in appearance, designed to improve his ability to blend into the forest; in other areas, he relies on his mask to do the job for him. The armor on Okena's left arm is slightly bulkier than that of his right; the reason for this is that his left arm is mechanical, due to an accident while serving the Brotherhood of Makuta. However, the bulky armor has a secondary purpose as well, as a compartment within houses and hides his slingshot when it is not in use. He wears a leather belt around his waist; hung on this are several bags containing the ammunition for his slingshot and sniper rifle.[/color]
[color=#003366;]A near-silent individual, Okena is best summarized as being ice cold. He does not talk a lot, as he prefers the silence while he hunts, and he cares very little for those around him. While he has been known to ally himself with others on occasion, Okena would much rather be alone than in a group.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Equipment: Okena possesses a Brotherhood-grade composite slingshot, and a few bags on his belt each containing 40 metal marbles (made of a near-Protosteel-strength material) for ammunition, each of them about half an inch in diameter. Packing a remarkable amount of force behind it, the slingshot is built into the armor on his left forearm and can be hidden inside of a compartment on it, and is capable of inflicting quite a bit of damage even over long distances. He also possesses a powerful energy-sniper rifle.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Mask: Okena wears a scoped Kanohi Kova, Mask of Chameleon, allowing him to alter the colors of his body to turn almost completely invisible in any terrain. He primarily uses it during his 'sniping' sessions as a way to keep himself from being detected; likewise, his scope aids him in aiming, especially from a long distance. The mask is shaped like a Mask of Rebounding. Further, due to experiments performed on him by the Brotherhood of Makuta, Okena is an anaerobic being, and does not breathe like a normal person would. Instead, a device built into the back of his armor siphons sulfur and other electron acceptors from his environment and feeds them directly into his body, thus removing his need to physically breathe while also rendering his aim more stable. However, this forces him to rely heavily on the device for survival, as he can no longer breathe on his own; if it were to be damaged or destroyed, he would die soon after.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Powers: Okena possesses control over the element of Plant Life, and as a result also bears a vast knowledge of poisons and antidotes, as well as knowledge about numerous Rahi, thanks to his affiliation with the jungle.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Vehicle: N/A, for the moment.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Biography: An efficient, intelligent and emotionless individual, Okena was once a member of the Brotherhood of Makuta's primary army, operating as an assassin for them whenever they required the execution of their enemies. Okena was somewhat famous among his fellow officers for his effectiveness on the field; rumors stated that he could do anything from crush a small rebellion single-handed, to plant a head shot on a Fikou Spider from two hundred feet away using his rifle.After several decades under the Brotherhood's service, Okena volunteered for an experimental program that aimed to create more efficient soldiers; it resulted in the nullification of his ability to feel remorse and other emotions, as well as rendered him a better sniper by removing his need to actively breathe. Soon afterward, the Sniper defected, seeing no further reason to operate under the group. This resulted in a bounty being placed on his head. Having spent much of his life fighting those who sought to claim the bounty, the implementation of the Immortal Factor saw a drastic decrease in bounty hunters going after him, freeing Okena for what he does best: assassination jobs... not that they matter much anymore. Nowadays, Okena is simply trying to find a purpose in life.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Description: As an Artanian, Sanshou greatly resembles a Toa, being seven feet tall and fairly lean in comparison to many other species. However, her armor is completely black and is more aerodynamic than that of a Toa. She also wears a long, gray, extremely frayed scarf, which is wrapped around her neck at all times and covers her mouth, the ends of which hang down the left of her back and come to a stop just below her knees. Her eyes are a pale, glowing yellow. The bottom half of Sanshou's right leg is a mechanical replacement, caused by her second death at the hands of a Common Vortixx Feranaki, as the injury proved to be too serious to regenerate on its own.[/color]
[color=#003366;]In terms of personality, Sanshou is a quiet and reserved individual, as well as relatively polite despite when you get to know her. She doesn't talk much, making her appear slightly unintelligent, but in reality she is extremely clever and calculating. What she does say tends to be short and concise, getting straight to the point. Since her failure to stop Lyxek, she has become more subdued than ever before, hardly ever speaking.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Equipment: Formerly a knife thrower, Sanshou has abandoned her former trade--post-traumatic stress caused by the events of Kai-Nam proved to be too much for her, affecting her ability to aim as precisely as she used to. Nowadays, she simply uses a curved energy sword, called the Silence, and smoke bombs.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Mask: Sanshou wears a black Noble Ruru.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Powers: Sanshou possesses no powers. She is, however, an incredibly acrobatic being, and is skilled with the sword. In the past, she was an expert knife-thrower, though her skills virtually vanished after Lyxek's victory.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Vehicle: Sanshou pilots a Wyvern-Type Mecha called the Niaka. Formerly the property of the now-deceased KNPD Officer Sensha, the Niaka measures at 22 feet long and 16 feet tall. The Niaka possesses quite a bit of equipment: Powerful thrusters and wings for flight, flamethrowers located in its mouth, bladed wings, protosteel armor, and various machine guns, many of which no longer function. Its sheer size, surprising maneuverability, protosteel armor, Smart A.I. and Sanshou's piloting skills make it an incredibly tough opponent, despite the fact that it has begun a natural breakdown.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Biography: Sanshou was formerly a bounty hunter operating as a member of the Guild of Tyis, with her primary skills revolving around assassination; she only abandoned that life when she joined the KNPD on Kai-Nam, though even that proved to be a short-lived career. After being ousted from the KNPD, along with other Guild members, Sanshou joined in the battle against Lyxek, and was one of the group members sent to destroy the Director of the KNPD--or, as they found out, the other half of the Heart of Ruaki. Attempts to reason with the Director failed, and in the resulting battle Sanshou's close friend Sensha was killed, and others in the group injured, forcing a retreat. Sanshou fled Kai-Nam some time later, eventually taking refuge on Metru-Nui after years of traveling.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Name: Elithes.Species: Ko-Matoran.Gender: Male.Description: [/color][color=#003366;]Here.[/color][color=#003366;] A standard-sized Ko-Matoran, Elithes has made many additions to his body following the original Skakdi raid on his island. He is more bulky than a standard Matoran, and wears more black armor than a Ko-Matoran normally would. His improvements have also made him independent of masks, and so he now wears a stronger, silver helmet in place of his old Kanohi. He wears a white jump pack on his back, and his entire right arm has been replaced with a mechanical one outfitted with an Ice Shotgun, due to damage he received from Skakdi long ago. Elithes's mechanical components are the result of injuries he received before the Immortal Factor came into play--something that had yet to affect him, as he has managed to avoid death all of his life.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Elithes is a very quiet individual. He has a strong sense of justice, siphoned into his bounty hunting job, though his hatred of Skakdi sometimes clouds his judgment when a situation involves one. Despite his mistrust towards them, he never lets his emotions get the better of him, and has even worked with several relatively good Skakdi on several missions–albeit involuntarily. Elithes's return to Kai-Nam caused him to temporarily become a warmer individual, but the events regarding Lyxek essentially ruined any chance he had of returning to a normal or healthy state of mind.Equipment: An Ice Shotgun that replaced his right forearm long ago, which channels his natural Ice elemental energy into small bursts of energy; a jump pack, which, as the name suggests, allows him to jump extremely high in short bursts; and a plasma pistol outfitted with a bayonet. He also carries containers of a purple substance that can be fired from his gun and that can grow into a sort of purple-colored crystal that is hard to break and does not melt.Mask: Elithes no longer needs a mask to survive, due to augmentations made to his body. Instead he now wears a highly durable, silver helmet with a built in HUD.Powers: Elithes has no actual powers, aside from his versatility and the Ko-Matoran resistance to cold. He can, however, survive without a mask.Vehicle: Elithes pilots a 10-foot-tall/10-foot-long vehicle called the Wheel--named after its shape as it is, essentially, a giant, completely mechanical wheel. Within the center is a seat, and attached to that are two double-barreled machine guns that he operates with a separate control stick, which can fire five different projectiles–protosteel bullets, EMP bolts, rockets, lightning webs, and fire balls. He is protected on either side by energy shields, and the interior of his vehicle is designed so that the anterior display panel takes the appearance of whatever is in front of him. This allows him to get around without crashing into anything whichever way he turns, a feat which appears impossible to those who see him driving due to the apparent lack of a front window.Biography: Originally a scholar on Kai-Nam, Elithes was a first hand witness and victim to the Skakdi raid of City, the central village of the island. Not only did it result in the deaths of many of his friends, but the Skakdi also left him severely injured. Using money he had saved up, as well as his own skills with technology, Elithes paid for and made many augmentations to his body, replacing his arm with a mechanical one and, essentially, making him stronger overall; he then began work as a bounty hunter and managed to become a member of the Guild of Tyis, a notoriously picky bounty hunters organization operating from the Kai-Namian islets. Elithes returned to Kai-Nam after the last Night Run due to Rahkshi trouble on a nearby island, and participated in the conflict against the Ring. Failing to stop Lyxek, and having lost his partner Illuxio, Elithes took to traveling again, becoming a wanderer and a recluse.[/color]
[color=#003366;]Username: Parugi.Name: Torith.Species: Toa of Fire.Gender: Male.Description: A Toa of standard height with dark red and golden armor, accentuated with red crystals, and with blazing, orange eyes. Torith wears a dark red Kanohi Kora, designed to be more like a helmet with a very Rahkshi-head-like look to it. Torith's right arm is mechanical, due to having his original arm torn off in a conflict on his home island pre-Immortal Factor. While his armor and body bear several scars, there are no huge flaws in Torith's appearance--he still retains the air of elegance and pride that he was known for on Exa-Nui. On his home island, Torith was known for being a natural leader. He cares very deeply for others, especially those whom he leads in battle, and sees the safety of the populace and his teammates as his highest priority. Torith is very driven by his sense of duty, so much so that it's difficult to get him to sit down and relax, as he always feels that there is something that needs to be done. Years of experience have taught Torith the pain of loss and betrayal, though he has not let these experiences daunt him--only allowed them to help him grow as a person.Equipment: Torith wields a large great sword, built with an intricate, decorated hilt, as well as a smaller hook blade--the remaining part of a pair that he used to own. Further, due to an incident that occurred before the Immortal Factor kicked in, his right arm was replaced with a noticeably bulkier mechanical one, which is quite a bit stronger than his remaining natural arm. Torith also wears boot additions, allowing him to channel his elemental powers through his feet.Mask: Torith wears the Kanohi Kora, the Mask of Duplication. The Kora allows the wearer to create a limited number of copies of their self, each with a certain fraction of the user's total power, with the amount depending on the number of copies--for instance, a single duplicate would cause Torith's total power to be split in half between himself and his copy. While the duplicates can be destroyed, their power does not disappear completely; instead, a small amount of it is drained back into the mask's owner.Powers: Torith possesses the elemental power of Fire, as well as control over the element of Magnetism, the latter of which was granted to him by a mysterious cube on Exa-Nui. Constant practice has given him incredible abilities in swordsmanship.Vehicle: N/A.Biography: Formerly the leader of a team of twelve Toa on the island of Exa-Nui, Torith is not a stranger to tragedy, having witnessed the breaking of his team and the shattering of his island, due to a series of escalating events that included Kovian's disappearance from the island and the loss of Torith's arm. Leaving immediately after the end of the war that destroyed his former life, Torith sought to track down Kovian, following his trail for several years without success. By the time immortality came into play, Torith had vowed to continue on his own odyssey of sorts, combating darkness and seeking to hone his abilities in his search for the Toa of Ice. Thus far, his preparations have proven worthwhile, as he has yet to be killed at all.
More NPCs will be added soon.
