We have two options: insert new characters in the Marcus/Sep scene before they can reach their objective (and dismiss FUBAR) - or - REDACT because FUBAR will probably not be there by time Sandy and the Jedi arrive.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

Looking at our posts, it doesn't look like it would be a big deal for us to edit them to leave off as Sandy and Maghrl head down to the basement. Nobody else has responded to our posts, so no other plot elements are affected.

T'is cool. Agy is out until later, but we can wrap up our stuff. I planned to have Marcus have the Drone go into the apartment so others could go up and down the hall, but we can leave him there and just have him remain silent. That way no redacts need be done. I also don't mind if the others interrupt. Marcus and Sep are both going to the warren to see to Opa. They can continue conversation there, especially as the priests are short staffed, and will need Marcus to work a while.

Slo, they honestly wouldn't put much priority on a phone, especially as it's going to take a lot of time and resources to harden the characters/essential items. Opa can't function without it, and the weapons (gauntlets and sabers) make sense. A data holding device that doesn't interface with anything? "Have you no pencils and paper?" :p The same applies to Marcus' external dataslate, and will probably apply to some of Primordial's equipment. Low tech adventure is low tech, if I understand correctly.

Re-edited and hopefully more balanced, also long ass bio to him.

#PLAPP

PERSONIFICATION LIFE
CHARACTER APPLICATION


PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
Character Name:
Adopted name: Cornelius Thriller
Born name: Hickory

Character Gender: Male

Species (nation personification, human, alien, etc): Human

Age:
Chronological age: 194 (Earth years)
Biological age: 25 (Earth years)

Appearance:
H:6’4
W:215lb (84.1kg)
Race: Caucasian
Eye color: Blue (right), Blind (left)
Hair: Brunette
Body build: lean, muscular


URL to Character Picture, if any: Will draw soon

Primary Objective: (What is your character's main goal? This should be the thing that drives their part of the plot.) Be a father to his kids (Sydney and Siduer), a husband to his wife (Charumati),a supportive friend, and a powerful businessman (owner of Templ-armaments, Quantum automotives, Blackstar Research, and Renegade PMC). While also being an emperor to his people in the year 2189 (in an alternate dimension).

Secondary Objectives: (What other goals does your character intend to achieve? These should drive subplots.) Restore his crumbling empire before revolts turn into revolutions

MUNDANE SKILLS
These do NOT require points. These are the average, daily things your character can do. Examples are "drive a car", "speak a normal Foreign Language", "play a guitar", "write poetry". Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier knows very basic training (shoot a gun, basic drill). Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Specialized Skill or Talent.
List Mundane skills here:
driving, flying, fluent in Arabic (Persian) and German as well as English

SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, piloting etc.
Ability 1 and Points Spent: genetics: 4
Ability 2 and Points Spent: gunslinger 2
Ability 3 and Points Spent: rifleman 3

OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite, so Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more than five minutes without serious side-effects? Some things are allowed without points. A pegasus has wings thus it can fly. A raptor is fast thus no points are spent in speed. These "natural" abilities should be listed in the character's description, however.
Ability 1: Genetic augmentation: regeneration
Power Level: 3
Strengths: Self healing wounds within seconds to minutes, can regenerate limbs in extreme manner.
Weaknesses: Can be interrupted, Headshot and heartshot (lethal) can still kill
Restrictions: relies on a lot of calories as a source of energy to promote regeneration

MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
List: Genetic watch - allows rapid augmentation to 12 different anthros to use their unique abilities
Raging Taurus Revolver - Nothing too special just a signature firearm he carries with him under his trench coat.


BACKGROUND
Education or Training: Basic combative training, medic training, airborne, air assault, and level 3 combatives (US Army), MD in Biophysiology
Character Background/Biography: Born in the Eastern hollers, or steep valleys, of Kentucky on 30 March 1995, the bastard child originally named Hickory McCoy was born, however his birth killed his mother, leaving his father, a coal miner, more strain on him. In 1998, Hickory was left on the streets of New York City almost succumbing to a sickness that left him almost dead if it was not for Margaret Thriller, a woman who took him in originally out of pity. She had him administered into a hospital and cared for. Months past before the toddler could fully recover, while he was healthy once again, he was left with a permanent scar that left him blinded in his left eye.

Instead of putting him in a foster home as originally planned, Ms. Thriller adopted Hickory as her own, renaming him Cornelius after Cornelius Vanderbilt. Time passed and despite his disability, Thriller hardly let it keep him from doing the things he dreamed of doing, one such was joining the military.

The process into the army was a steep uphill battle for the young man and would have failed if not for political power that allowed him in. This alone was enough to encourage him to his best, and his best he did. As he was a 68W, combat medic in the United States Army serving with the 82nd in Germany for 2 years and eventually Afghanistan where, to his efforts, cared for his squad when under fire from hostile forces, presumably Taliban. Though men died, a few more were able to survive. And though he received no high medals that day, he did carry knowledge on leadership. He did however, earn a purple heart after having shrapnel hit his back leaving him paraplegic and wheelchair bound.

Time after the military Thriller pursued a life of education, tying up his bachelor's degree two years after leaving the armed service, eventually receiving his Master’s degree. As well as taking stock in businesses, as advised by his foster mother.

As time went on, the US government implemented a design of Citadels along the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian mountains, twelve on each side. Both acting as homes for the people in charge of them, bomb shelters and fortified positions in times of war, and a fallout bunker in times of the apocalypse. During this time, one Citadel located in Wyoming was handed out to Thriller. Beside the modern frontier decor to it on the living space, the facility came equipped with plenty of SAM and Phalanx turrets as well as 203 and 155mm howitzers - none that saw combat. There also was a hydroponics garden, storage facility that maintained supplies for food, water, ammunition, nuclear disaster or natural disaster; Stations that were meant to last for decades if not centuries. Biggest thing that came with it was Thriller’s own secret laboratory to where he created the unthinkable at the time, an anthropomorphic creature that was created from his own DNA and that of a cat.

Much time after he created his daughter, Thriller was 80 and still stuck in his wheelchair. There were two decades he went into partnership with a German group of rocket scientists and astronomers who deemed that a planet by the name Gliese 581g was suitable for human life, assuming after some terraforming. Being a high rated donor, they selected him as well as a few other men onto a council that will act as the government between the transition from Earth to their new colonial home.

His reign upon the council was short lived, at the age of 87 Thriller passed away leaving his daughter and several grandchildren in his passing. His body was cryofrozen as to hold onto it to bury him on their new home planet. This plan was interrupted as the council was now unbalanced. During this a cult of tech savvy people known by the locals as “tech priest” for their unusual fascination for technology worked alongside scientist to create a suit for Thriller eventually reviving him in a metallic form. This form stood at 7 feet tall and had a severely limited power life of 1 week before having to charge again, thankfully for only 7 minutes. His body remained frozen still, but his conscious, his memories, everything that made Thriller him was alive.

By the time they reached the planet and started settling in, they were met with hostility from an unrecorded species known simply as the Krutes. An alien that was described as a crocodile that walked on two legs and that wore armor. Despite their initial surprise, Thriller was able to conjure up enough able bodies to fight off the hordes eventually starting up the War of First Contact (not to be confused with 2nd Thanksgiving Day which was another alien war all together on Earth).

Victory after victory, The Pioneers, as the first soldiers of the time were called, gained trust in Thriller and after 2 years of conflict and the submission of the Krutes, Thriller gained the trust of the colony enough so they wanted him to be their leader - for eternity. Everything following is null as it contributed to Germanic Templar history.

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
Crude, shrewd, and well tuned on what goes on around him, Thriller is known to some either as an emperor, friend, and/or a father. While quick at making choices in most situations, he can be stubborn at times such to the point where he can come off as headstrong in some cases. Nevertheless, he is a leader to takes point in the front of the formation when he can, showing compassion for his friends, family, and countrymen. He owns all Templar related businesses in Bielefeld.


Now if you do not mind, I must remind myself why genetic engineering isn't such a good idea, but at the same time a great idea too with a video.

The highly polytheistic Luxans don't practice Valentines day but rather have a substitute called the Day of Galila.
Galila being a very miniscula deity most closely associated with the constellation of Gemini and the more popular god, The Crawling Chaos.
In recent years the cult of Galila has turned their holiday into a more casual celebration of any sort of close bonds and kinship.
So on that day which changes based on the Lunar calendar, Luxan exchange gifts and salutations with close family and loved ones.
It is also considered a good day to form long lasting bonds and is typically an excuse for Luxans to begin courting rituals.
Although some more orthodox Galilans criticize it for being overly commercialized, it's still one of the more celebrated Luxan holidays.

Valentine's Day One-Shots. I went with current day, since most aren't from places that celebrate it.

Not that I have characters that fit the "love and cuddles" holiday theme.

The lizard perching on his shoulders draped her body atop his head and pressed her palms to his brow, pushing his loose skin down to cover his eyes and obscure the eggs frying in the cast iron pan before him. She asked the obvious. "Ooooh wootitit?'

"Food," said he without missing a beat.

"Why you no eat it while moving?" Fair enough question, given his genus' dietary habits.

"Eggs don't move," came his patient retort.

Seemingly satisfied with the answer, she lifted her body and eased her claws' grip on his skin. He winced as she slid down his back. A soft thud indicated she had indeed touched ground (rather than her customary perching on his rump in order to rifle through his pockets). The thade breathed a relived sigh and returned to his task.

The relief was premature. His ear flicked as her claws alighted on the egg carton. "Don't fuck with that," he growled far too late; she had opened it and was obviously pawing at the eggs. The rhythmic tapping of sharp teeth on a hard shell indicated that she had popped one into her maw. "I said don't fu-"

The words died on his lips as a hard object collided with the back of his head. Undoubtedly, the lizard had either launched it from her nasty mouth or else thrown its twin at him. It was certainly a raw egg however -- he could feel the slick white and yolk running down his neck.

"It moved! Now eat!" Happy laughter accompanied these words, and then a second egg joined the first. She pranced around him, giddy, heedless of his rising ire, a jovial beastie doing a Snoopy dance as she warbled out a child's cadenced sing-song. "I made breakfast for Ohhh-cho! I made breakfast for Ohhhh-cho! La la la... lala!"

His sour expression -- for he had few others -- intensified. A hand gripped the pan's warm handle.

"Do you know what day it is?" she stopped her dancing, though she continued to rhythmically bob on the balls of her feet. Tiny hands patted his lower forelimbs and sides. "Today is Valentine's Day! It's Valentine's Day, YAY! Ocho! Waddiyegetme?"

"I got you a gift," the deadman's grip on the pan tightened.

"EEEeeeEEEE!" delight bubbled from her. "Issit sparkly? Issit crinkly?" Her bobbing increased and now the hand touches became eager, stinging slaps. "Tell me, tell me, tell me! Issit something I can we-"

CRACK!

"It's breakfast," he smirked as he lowered the frying pan and watched her slump unconscious to the floor. His wrist swiveled and the eggs slid out to adorn the top of her head.


The old cyborg laid down the last bead of industrial glue and then stepped back to survey his work. All three edges of the door were now sealed to the jamb. Exit was nearly impossible without breaking down the solid steel panel, unless the occupant chose to go out a window. They'd find a muddy morass below -- courtesy of the Building's garden hose and excrement from Charumati's stables. A smile parted Thaddeus' lips. Mission accomplished.

He pocketed the glue gun before offering a snide, two-finger salute to the door. "I've got a date with a lizard. So long, Septimus."

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

URL to Character Picture, if any: Will draw soon

Primary Objective: (What is your character's main goal? This should be the thing that drives their part of the plot.) Be a father to his kids (Sydney and Siduer), a husband to his wife (Charumati),a supportive friend, and a powerful businessman (owner of Templ-armaments, Quantum automotives, Blackstar Research, and Renegade PMC). While also being an emperor to his people in the year 2189 (in an alternate dimension).

Secondary Objectives: (What other goals does your character intend to achieve? These should drive subplots.) Restore his crumbling empire before revolts turn into revolutions

MUNDANE SKILLS
These do NOT require points. These are the average, daily things your character can do. Examples are "drive a car", "speak a normal Foreign Language", "play a guitar", "write poetry". Some mundane skills come from your bio and are freebie. A soldier knows very basic training (shoot a gun, basic drill). Medic, martial arts or sniper would be a Specialized Skill or Talent.
List Mundane skills here:
driving, flying, fluent in Arabic (Persian) and German as well as English

SPECIALIZED SKILLS AND TALENTS
These are specialized skills that set you apart from the average person. You have 7 points to spend here. Examples are swordsmanship, sniper, coercion, piloting etc.
Ability 1 and Points Spent: acrobatics: 2
Ability 2 and Points Spent: gunslinger 2
Ability 3 and Points Spent: rifleman 3

OPTIONAL SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERISTICS
You have 7 points to spend here on supernatural skills or abilities. Sonic Scream, Levitation, Spell Casting, Shape Shifting etc. Superman MUST have his kryptonite, so Restrictions are what can't they do with their power or what balances it. They can only use it when they genuinely need it? They can't use it for more than five minutes without serious side-effects? Some things are allowed without points. A pegasus has wings thus it can fly. A raptor is fast thus no points are spent in speed. These "natural" abilities should be listed in the character's description, however.
Ability 1: Genetic augmentation: regeneration
Power Level: 3
Strengths: Self healing wounds within seconds to minutes, can regenerate limbs in extreme manner.
Weaknesses: Can be interrupted, Headshot and heartshot (lethal) can still kill
Restrictions: relies on a lot of calories as a source of energy to promote regeneration

MAGICAL OR SPECIAL ITEMS
List: Genetic watch - allows rapid augmentation to 12 different anthros to use their unique abilities
Raging Taurus Revolver - Nothing too special just a signature firearm he carries with him under his trench coat.


BACKGROUND
Education or Training: Basic combative training, medic training, airborne, air assault, and level 3 combatives (US Army), MD in Biophysiology
Character Background/Biography: Born in the Eastern hollers, or steep valleys, of Kentucky on 30 March 1995, the bastard child originally named Hickory McCoy was born, however his birth killed his mother, leaving his father, a coal miner, more strain on him. In 1998, Hickory was left on the streets of New York City almost succumbing to a sickness that left him almost dead if it was not for Margaret Thriller, a woman who took him in originally out of pity. She had him administered into a hospital and cared for. Months past before the toddler could fully recover, while he was healthy once again, he was left with a permanent scar that left him blinded in his left eye.

Instead of putting him in a foster home as originally planned, Ms. Thriller adopted Hickory as her own, renaming him Cornelius after Cornelius Vanderbilt. Time passed and despite his disability, Thriller hardly let it keep him from doing the things he dreamed of doing, one such was joining the military.

The process into the army was a steep uphill battle for the young man and would have failed if not for political power that allowed him in. This alone was enough to encourage him to his best, and his best he did. As he was a 68W, combat medic in the United States Army serving with the 82nd in Germany for 2 years and eventually Afghanistan where, to his efforts, cared for his squad when under fire from hostile forces, presumably Taliban. Though men died, a few more were able to survive. And though he received no high medals that day, he did carry knowledge on leadership. He did however, earn a purple heart after having shrapnel hit his back leaving him paraplegic and wheelchair bound.

Time after the military Thriller pursued a life of education, tying up his bachelor's degree two years after leaving the armed service, eventually receiving his Master’s degree. As well as taking stock in businesses, as advised by his foster mother.

As time went on, the US government implemented a design of Citadels along the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian mountains, twelve on each side. Both acting as homes for the people in charge of them, bomb shelters and fortified positions in times of war, and a fallout bunker in times of the apocalypse. During this time, one Citadel located in Wyoming was handed out to Thriller. Beside the modern frontier decor to it on the living space, the facility came equipped with plenty of SAM and Phalanx turrets as well as 203 and 155mm howitzers - none that saw combat. There also was a hydroponics garden, storage facility that maintained supplies for food, water, ammunition, nuclear disaster or natural disaster; Stations that were meant to last for decades if not centuries. Biggest thing that came with it was Thriller’s own secret laboratory to where he created the unthinkable at the time, an anthropomorphic creature that was created from his own DNA and that of a cat.

Much time after he created his daughter, Thriller was 80 and still stuck in his wheelchair. There were two decades he went into partnership with a German group of rocket scientists and astronomers who deemed that a planet by the name Gliese 581g was suitable for human life, assuming after some terraforming. Being a high rated donor, they selected him as well as a few other men onto a council that will act as the government between the transition from Earth to their new colonial home.

His reign upon the council was short lived, at the age of 87 Thriller passed away leaving his daughter and several grandchildren in his passing. His body was cryofrozen as to hold onto it to bury him on their new home planet. This plan was interrupted as the council was now unbalanced. During this a cult of tech savvy people known by the locals as “tech priest” for their unusual fascination for technology worked alongside scientist to create a suit for Thriller eventually reviving him in a metallic form. This form stood at 7 feet tall and had a severely limited power life of 1 week before having to charge again, thankfully for only 7 minutes. His body remained frozen still, but his conscious, his memories, everything that made Thriller him was alive.

By the time they reached the planet and started settling in, they were met with hostility from an unrecorded species known simply as the Krutes. An alien that was described as a crocodile that walked on two legs and that wore armor. Despite their initial surprise, Thriller was able to conjure up enough able bodies to fight off the hordes eventually starting up the War of First Contact (not to be confused with 2nd Thanksgiving Day which was another alien war all together on Earth).

Victory after victory, The Pioneers, as the first soldiers of the time were called, gained trust in Thriller and after 2 years of conflict and the submission of the Krutes, Thriller gained the trust of the colony enough so they wanted him to be their leader - for eternity. Everything following is null as it contributed to Germanic Templar history.

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
Crude, shrewd, and well tuned on what goes on around him, Thriller is known to some either as an emperor, friend, and/or a father. While quick at making choices in most situations, he can be stubborn at times such to the point where he can come off as headstrong in some cases. Nevertheless, he is a leader to takes point in the front of the formation when he can, showing compassion for his friends, family, and countrymen. He owns all Templar related businesses in Bielefeld.


Now if you do not mind, I must remind myself why genetic engineering isn't such a good idea, but at the same time a great idea too with a video.

Need to add genetics or medicine to his specialized skills.
