EXAMPLE of new format:
THIS:
Nation Nickname: Swith

Character Name (can be different than nation name): Captain Minerva Blackwater

URL to Character Picture or a few sentences about what they look like: Here

Character Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Cursed Immortal; host to Keeper of Secrets. (Former human)

Character Powers/Special Abilities (if any): Minerva can also utilize dark spheres and twist dark matter. She has extremely limited morphing abilities and assuming another form will cause her to die much faster. Minerva is a master of Time. Like Klaus, she can travel through pipes, jump into coffee cups and appear elsewhere - but the whole idea is "absolutely absurd" (her opinion) so she refrains from it.

General Cultist Abilities: Immune to the laws of physics so she appears to vanish into shadows, etc.; able to traverse dimensions and "Between"; telepathic ties with fellow cultists, daemons and gods. The daemon prevents telepathic attacks, allows her to look upon Eldritch without going insane, and grants her immunity to magic. She possesses certain magical items which also serve to protect her.

Other: Pilot; specializes hand to hand combat, throwing weapons, whip.

Character Weaknesses/Flaws: dies every 12 hours when her daemon departs to revitalize itself. She can't be healed by magic. "Chaos" can harm her if they recognize what she is. Use of specific powers (spheres, dark matter manipulation) speeds up death cycle as the daemon's energy is more quickly depleted. She exists outside of Time ergo being in the flow of it takes effort.

Character Background: Please note... this is going to be lengthy because I'm incorporating a bit of Cer's character, Klaus, into it. Consider it a partial joint-effort.

Minerva was born in India in 1918. That was the year the Flu Pandemic began its deadly spread. Her father, Basil Blackwater, was an officer in the Brisith Navy. He died before her birth and her mother succumbed to the flu a month before her due date. Minerva, named after her own mother, was placed on the dead woman's body shortly after delivery; she wasn't expected to live. Fate had other plans. Minerva spent her early years in a Catholic orphanage before being sent to relatives in London.

Britain declared war on Germany in 1939, and Minerva rose to the challenge. She was assigned as a Special Operations Executive (SOE) in 1940, and her job was espionage, sabotage and reconnaissance in occupied Europe against the Axis powers, and to aid local resistance movements. She specialized in underground railroads to move supplies (and fleeing Jews) in Nazi-occupied territories. Her assignment also brought her to the attention of Maximilian Klaus, a notorious Einsatzgruppe officer (Schutzstaffel (SS) paramilitary death squads of Nazi Germany) who was often hindered by her determination to protect Jews.

Klaus seemed maniacal in his desire to murder Minerva, wasting untold resources in an insane attempt to eradicate her and her "lads". He gave her the monicker unsterblich Miststück (loosely translated: Deathless Bitch) although he secretly admired her tenacity and drive. She was finally captured while freeing elderly "rats" from a rail car, and Klaus was alerted and boarded a train to finally "put a bullet into her head". Tragically, he never had that opportunity. Minerva fought to protect an elderly woman despite overwhelming forces, and her "churlish" behavior resulted in rape and sodomy of both her and the woman. She was used up and left for dead in a horse stall. Her final moments of life were spent curled around the woman in an effort to comfort her.

The condition of his worst enemy caused Klaus to psychologically snap. He'd seen many horrors but nothing had left him prepared for what they'd done to Minerva. To this day, he has never told her how she came to be possessed by a Greater Daemon, or how life was restored to her, but she was a cursed thing now beholden to Chaos. She also discovered that Klaus wasn't what people thought, and she joined him in secretly undermining Nazi Germany although she loathed him for what he was.

Minerva worked her way up through Chaos ranks until she was the leading cultist in charge of her god's forces. Her work (and Chaos' influence over Mankind throughout history) has meant that she has walked in the distant past as well as the far future. Prior to her current assignment, Minerva was Chaos' top god killer.

She was brought to the current timeline by Swith, an avatar of her god, and set to work in infiltrating the city, ferreting out enemy movements and organizing Chaos forces. Her lads are fiercely loyal to her and assist her in her efforts. Her most recent events brought her face to face with Yellow King as well as the Drone Empire. (It should be noted that in a prior RP on a another forum, Minerva and Klaus where charged with killing Cthulhu. After they finished him, they worked their way down the list of Great Old Ones, sparing Azathoth and leaving off with Nctosa and Nctolhu in order to work for Swith.)

Her rank of Captain is merely a term of respect. She is, by nature of her death, asexual (despite Klaus' damn efforts to court her). The irony is that she the top cultist for the God of Lust and Hedonism.

IMPORTANT:
One paragraph that sums up your character. This paragraph is what we'll use on your player tab on the first page of the thread. This MUST be brief. Your tab will contain a link to your application so people will have full details:
Minerva Blackwater is the cultist leader for Slaaneshi forces stationed in Bielefeld. She works directly for Charumati Thriller, who is an avatar of the Chaos god. She is no-nonsense (for the most part.)

Raymond Jansma
(Appearance: Close to this. Coming in at 6'0'' and 176 pounds, Ray is a medium-framed male human. He has Hazel eyes, alongside trimmed black hair. Ray has also gone through a complicated surgical appearance that has changed his appearance to that of a furry. His "fursona" is a grey fox; he is predominantly covered in grey and white fur, with short ears and a tail of approx. 1 1/2 inches in length.)

Ray had always liked the idea of adventure as a child; despite his intelligence, his boyhood persuaded him at the age of 22 to pursue a job within the Wolf City PD. While certainly not pretty, he enjoyed a somewhat glamorous position as a detective within the Northern end of the city. He worked with such legends as Mark Phelps and Jesse Parks, and even enjoyed a small amount of public fame for famously busting a real estate extortion ring. He served a good six years with the department, and loved every minute of it. Well, almost every minute.

In the beginning of his sixth year in the PD, he got reprimanded for inappropriately handling a case involving a family member, and was strung out on excessive use of force. His position all but gone, he resigned and attempted to begin a private investigation firm, to no success.

However, his investigation talents didn't go unnoticed. Officially recruited by the Strategic Threat Analysis Bureau (Erucia's variant of a Homeland Security Agency) as a "sleeper agent," Ray was joined into the secretive Unit 317: an unofficial agency created in 2004 with the goal of dealing with supernatural, otherworldly or highly secretive threats to the Democratic Union. Over time however, 317 eventually was dissolved into the newly-created Special Projects Research Administration, and now is able to operate "within the open" so to speak.

Despite his one-time fame, Ray fit in perfectly. Originally handling minor investigations, he eventually moved up to being an officer within the group after only a year in The Unit. However, recently he's been actually placed on sleeper duty after a request by his superiors. So, after a recent string of very odd events, he's managed to find himself here, at the apartment. Ray's adventures here in Bielefeld have also led him to succeed in falling in love with Albert, a 4,000-year-old personification of a futuristic nation.

Simon Clark
In a time where blacks still struggled to find their way into middle-class positions, Simon was smooth-sailing to becoming a legend within the intelligence community. Operations against the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China, crack intelligence gathering abilities, natural-born interrogator: he was all of those. The civil rights act of 1959 in Erucia came out when Simon was only 10 years old. He was born to a lower-class family in the projects of Palmont City; a rough life for anyone. They struggled to get by at times, and while the CRA '59 certainly was a milestone, blacks in Erucia still found themselves persecuted just for being a minority. However, his high grades and excellent geographical knowledge got Simon noticed by the right people in '67, and the ICEA (Intelligence and Counter-Espionage Agency) offered to pay his college education on the condition of Mr. Clark working for them. As a result, the legend of "The Black Lotus" was born.

He was a founding member of both Unit 317 and of the Special Projects Research Administration; unofficially acknowledged for both. Before Unit 317 was initiated in 2004, it's granddaddy within the ICEA was Union Company: generally inefficient in its role of extraterrestrial and supernatural studies until 1975, the date of Simon's entrance. It was transformed from a loose coalition of operators and officers into a fierce defender of the homeland, operating from behind the lines. Of course, its restrictions as stated under its informal constitution lead to its replacement.

Simon is now 74, far too old for a operative. But due to his insistence at refusing membership on the SPRA's Commanding Council, he's been placed on a mixed role: serving the SPRA's presence at the Erucian Embassy in Bielfield.
Dwelling: outside of building.

Raymond Jansma:
27-year-old agent of the Special Projects Research Administration and owner of Talwall Investigative Solutions. Generally serious on the outside, although a inner playfulness is generally lit when around his boyfriend Albert. Hails from outside of the Bielefeld Universe.
Simon Clark:
74-year-old local SPRA commander and Ray's boss. Rather friendly old man who can get angry as a bull.

Other Characters for Swith Witherward:

Chi
A chibi maxtrix thrust upon Swith when her essence needed a temporary body. Created by Herr Doktor and enlarged by Swith, Chi is the babysitter for Marcus, Eva, and the twins. Rarely seen NPC.

The Cultists
Don't ask. They're there. All of them have work Visas or some sort of citizenship. Known Cultists: Will (Minerva's second in command).

Thomas and Pete
Comic relief. I got tired of having "unamed" cultists roaming the woods. They keep the town safe. It's unknown which of them is in charge of their unit, but we assume it's Thomas because Pete is both lazy and a bit too insane to be in charge of even tying his boot laces.

Mama Toussaint
Marie-Claire Toussaint is neither old or young, but she has an exotic air to her. Her skin, tattooed with odd symbols and glyphs, is the inviting color of café au lait. She keeps her own business but has abilities that transcend nature.


The Chaos Apartments
Full description. Please read that before attempting to break in. It is in a pocket dimension that can't be breached. If you attempt to break in, you might as well make up a new character.

Access to the apartments is via a boring door in the Building Lobby. A short flight of stairs will take people to a foyer containing four doors. One door is for Ogoti's apartment, the other is for the Cultist Leader's apartment, and the third is for Naomi and Ceril's apartment. The fourth door is impossible to see but it leads to Swith's lair.

BIO: An Eastern European Dictatorship that is usually always at war with the neighboring nations.

Bran
Branson "Bran" Nikanor: A Branriech Airforce mechanic who was born in the Capitol city in 1988, a few years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. He grew up most of his childhood with his sister until the Branriech Civil War, he was also one of the first generation of young boys conscripted into the reformed military at age 15. After a few years of distinguishing himself as an exemplary mechanic, he was eventually marked for death by the current High General. He escaped through an experimental teleporter and ended up in the Fallout shelter of the apartment. He married Amaryllis Volkova (Now Nikanorova) in the winter of 2012, and is now the father of Rachelle and Tolya. He runs a Non-Lethal weapons company in the city, providing non lethal solutions to cut down on needless deaths.

Rylli
Born in 1989, Amaryllis "Rylli" Nikanorova grew up in a rural village. Her father was killed in the Soviet-Afghan conflict and her mother was killed in an auto crash a year later. Rylli then lived with her older brother who was shot down and killed in an Airforce skirmish. Having no other family, Rylli joined the Branriech Airforce and was trained as a Fighter pilot, she met Bran and fell in love with him her first year of flying. She would later defect from the Branriech and has taken up residence with Bran. She has since been kidnapped by the drone empire where she took in Rachelle Baines, a child who's parents were both killed by the drones. She has married Branson Nikanor and then became pregnant with Tolya, who was born in the summer of 2013.

Natiya
Natiya Nikanor, on the left, Bran's older sister was born in 1986. She was nearly conscripted into the Branriech Military along with Bran, but a quick descision from their parents saved Natiya from what would have been frontline service. They sent her to America just before their untimely demise at the hands of a firing squad, she went to college for a few years riding on the Nikanor's vast fortune before dropping out and joining a PMC before quitting that too. Now she leads a quiet life in the upper floor of the apartment. She currently lives with Aleki, although she barely sees him anymore, either just because of timing, or other causes.

Rachelle
Born in 2006, Rachelle Baines and her family were captured by the Drone Empire. During testing, her mother was presumed killed while her father protected her afterwards. During Rylli's escape, Rachelle and her father tagged along while all the other subjects were gunned down behind them. As the trio was making their way to salvation, D4 killed Rachelle's father in a fit of rage, leaving Rylli and Rachelle to board the shuttle and escape back to Earth. Not knowing the true fate of either of her parents (But knowing she won't see them again), Rachelle has tried her best to get used to Bran and Rylli as her new parents.

Kei
Kei, the creator of the Branriech and it's people. A Demon or a Goddess (No-one knows and she doesn't care.) who is directly responsible for the creation of the Branriech as a state and as a people. Anyone hailing from the Branriech is descended from her and she refers to them as 'her childeren'. She lives in her own dimension in the apartment, basically a portal in the door leading to her house in the desert of her home dimension, where she lived while still human.

Apartment, Bran's room

Kei, the creator of the Branriech and it's people. A Demon or a Goddess (No-one knows and she doesn't care.) who is directly responsible for the creation of the Branriech as a state and as a people. Anyone hailing from the Branriech is descended from her and she refers to them as 'her childeren'. She lives in her own dimension in the apartment, basically a portal in the door leading to her house in the desert of her home dimension, where she lived while still human.

Just link this post and have it as the only thing in my tab.

Isn't that pretty much what you already have in your tab?

Your stuff was fine because it was a collection of short paragraphs. You can do apps if you want to flesh them out more and I'll link the apps. The majority of tabs had blocks of paragraphs for a single character. Some of them are longer than the block I have for all 8 of my characters combined.

Could you replace it with what I just posted then? I added a few things.

Because there's too much descriptive shit and I can't fit in any new player's characters. I've asked people to shorten their tabs previously. Some did. Others haven't. Now, with the new formula, I'll just copy their existing tab info (if they can't be bothered to make out an app) and paste it OOC... and the only thing under their tab will be whatever choice words *I* decide to use for their character.

I'm sorry, but I don't see how it could possibly be that intense for a lot of our characters. You guys have already written huge amounts of information.

Also, it's causing our new players to think and to flesh out their 2D characters. What are their powerful character's flaws and weaknesses? If I can list those for my own OP tools, other people can think of a few for their own characters.

BIO: An Eastern European Dictatorship that is usually always at war with the neighboring nations.

Bran
Branson "Bran" Nikanor: A Branriech Airforce mechanic who was born in the Capitol city in 1988, a few years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. He grew up most of his childhood with his sister until the Branriech Civil War, he was also one of the first generation of young boys conscripted into the reformed military at age 15. After a few years of distinguishing himself as an exemplary mechanic, he was eventually marked for death by the current High General. He escaped through an experimental teleporter and ended up in the Fallout shelter of the apartment. He married Amaryllis Volkova (Now Nikanorova) in the winter of 2012, and is now the father of Rachelle and Tolya. He runs a Non-Lethal weapons company in the city, providing non lethal solutions to cut down on needless deaths.

Rylli
Born in 1989, Amaryllis "Rylli" Nikanorova grew up in a rural village. Her father was killed in the Soviet-Afghan conflict and her mother was killed in an auto crash a year later. Rylli then lived with her older brother who was shot down and killed in an Airforce skirmish. Having no other family, Rylli joined the Branriech Airforce and was trained as a Fighter pilot, she met Bran and fell in love with him her first year of flying. She would later defect from the Branriech and has taken up residence with Bran. She has since been kidnapped by the drone empire where she took in Rachelle Baines, a child who's parents were both killed by the drones. She has married Branson Nikanor and then became pregnant with Tolya, who was born in the summer of 2013.

Natiya
Natiya Nikanor, on the left, Bran's older sister was born in 1986. She was nearly conscripted into the Branriech Military along with Bran, but a quick descision from their parents saved Natiya from what would have been frontline service. They sent her to America just before their untimely demise at the hands of a firing squad, she went to college for a few years riding on the Nikanor's vast fortune before dropping out and joining a PMC before quitting that too. Now she leads a quiet life in the upper floor of the apartment. She currently lives with Aleki, although she barely sees him anymore, either just because of timing, or other causes.

Rachelle
Born in 2006, Rachelle Baines and her family were captured by the Drone Empire. During testing, her mother was presumed killed while her father protected her afterwards. During Rylli's escape, Rachelle and her father tagged along while all the other subjects were gunned down behind them. As the trio was making their way to salvation, D4 killed Rachelle's father in a fit of rage, leaving Rylli and Rachelle to board the shuttle and escape back to Earth. Not knowing the true fate of either of her parents (But knowing she won't see them again), Rachelle has tried her best to get used to Bran and Rylli as her new parents.

Kei
Kei, the creator of the Branriech and it's people. A Demon or a Goddess (No-one knows and she doesn't care.) who is directly responsible for the creation of the Branriech as a state and as a people. Anyone hailing from the Branriech is descended from her and she refers to them as 'her childeren'.

URL TO CHARACTER PICTURE: here

CHARACTER CLASSIFICATION (mortal, god, demon, etc): godling

CHARACTER POWERS:
  • She can weave the fabric of the universe. She doesn't do it often, and Charumati is constantly riding her ass over "dropped stitches" and "mis-measured seams" so she tends to completely shy away from it. The ability is for the purpose of mending and not offensive in nature. She lost control only once, during a release of sorrow which accidentally destroyed an entire plain of existence. It was solely a character development moment and she wept for weeks because she killed the pretty grass and trees.
  • She can transfigure herself or others into animals to cheer people up, and her favorite are Chinchillas and Fennecs. She sticks to things that are kind in nature rather than things with cruel claws and teeth. The exception to that is her ability to turn into a velociraptor. NOT for the purpose of using it to hunt or attack, but because Neil (an actual velociraptor) sometimes needs a good preening or another scaly face to talk to.
  • Naomi, like the rest of the Chaos gods, daemons and cultists, is immune to possession and magical or telepathic attacks.
  • Healing (supernatural: instantaneous healing of others)
  • Snow/Frost affinity/manipulation. This is how Naomi plays. It's also in indicator of her emotions. When she's emotionally moved, it snows. When she's sad, frost forms. It's not a weapon but she's used it for self-defense a few times (forming ice under feet, or throwing a snowball at a monster to distract it from eating her friend.)
  • Empathic. I always forget to add this to the lists because it's not an intrusive thing. She picks up on the surface feelings of others and will sometimes seek out characters who are in turmoil or feeling down.

CHARACTER FLAWS/WEAKNESSES:
  • Physically weaker than a human
  • Easily hurt through conventional methods although she recently gained control of the ability to regenerate her matrix.
  • Overly trusting yet mistrustful of certain things.
  • Afraid of the dark because she frequently forgets she's not actually human.
  • Inexperienced in the real world (although she contains all of Charumati's knowledge and past experiences up until they were divided.) She thought a golf ball was an egg, for goodness sake.
  • She can't always control her powers (I usually play this out as a form of comedy).
  • She is sometimes too curious for her own good.
  • The laws of physics are meaningless to her. Normally this would be a power, but in Naomi's case, it sometimes leads to slapstick comedy (at her expense) or harms her. Naomi shies away from fights and would rather turn the other cheek than hurt someone. Her ability to ignore the laws of physics exists because she's an easy target.
  • Timidness.

SPECIAL ABILITIES OR SKILLS:
Knitting
Singing
She can generate a soft light with her hand because hey... she's afraid of the dark.

BACKGROUND:
She is the literal embodiment of love: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Naomi is a splinter of Charumati Thriller, the physical embodiment of a Chaos god. Naomi, like Charumati, has a tie directly to the Greater Being whose finger... blah blah lots of physics. Basically, Naomi is a young god who hasn't mastered her abilities yet and is more in tune with the Being that controls the Chaos gods than with the Chaos gods themselves. She dislikes Chaos and the pantheon frustrates her.

She was formed because Charumati needed to rescue a friend while also rescuing a different friend. Charumati divided herself, keeping her physical strength while pumping power into Naomi. Naomi housed all of Charumati's emotions for a very long time.

It's often been joked that the most evil force in the universe would one day approach Naomi and attack her... and her final act before departing existence would be to surround that being with the purity of her own being, wrapping it in tendrils of sympathy and kindness. Naomi would be at peace knowing her last breath was spent doing good for another. "Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."

Naomi has a dark side that gets triggered by traumatic events or simply because she doesn't know better. She turned a zombie inside out just to see what he looked like with his parts "all funny arranged backwards." She had a nervous breakdown and sought to murder all her friends because "if they all die at the same time, the pain won't keep hitting me every week" (this was during a stage in the RP where people were constantly dying.)

The godling treats her friends as family. She sees Cornelius Thriller (Charumati's mortal husband) as a father figure. Rylli Nikanor is the wife to her "brother Bran". Giovenith is a "sister". Arthur and Fortu and Neil are her first friends, and are her "cousins". Thaddeus "Ceril" Cerillium is her lover and fiance, and she treats his children as her own. She has an adopted daughter named Eva. Bones is the person she most loves because he and his brothers gathered all the souls of those killed during a Drone invasion and brought them to her so she could watch them be released; this was shortly after her breakdown and that action is what healed her grieving heart. To her, Bones is a true brother (mainly because he's part of her pantheon).

Naomi is fiercely protective of her friends and family, and of innocents. This becomes a major setback to her: the death of her friends gives rise to a soul-shattering grief. Bones and his brothers helped her sort that intense sorrow (see above), but the potential for "slipping" still remains.

NOTES: Naomi sucks at combat. Don't hand her a gun. She'll just shoot her own foot or the ceiling or the person standing next to her. Don't let her cook... she accidentally gives people food poisoning. She can't drive a vehicle. She only recently learned how to swim.
