Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
-Edgar Allan Poe


There's a secret world


A lot of folks like to believe that we have most things figured out in the world. Sure, scientists are still finding new things about the world and the universe and for every answer we find more questions are still left answered, but for the most part we feel that we have a far better understanding of how this world works when compared to our ancestors. While believers still exist most of us are confident in saying that things like angels and demons, supernatural manifestations and demiurges, magic and witch cults are all superstitious nonsense; byproducts of a less enlighten age. Yet if one was to glimpse what lay beneath the pleasant facade of our society they would terror and madness lurking in the shadows, hiding in every nook and cranny or even in plain sight.

They would find a massive, world spanning, occult underground populated by a loosely connected network of warring cults, shadowy cabals and secret societies. Loathsome monsters, marauding spirits, bizarre supernatural forces, reality shattering and mind bending magic, pantheons of dark and forgotten gods and incomprehensible eldritch truths exist in this secret world. Beyond this world are many alternative worlds, some like our own but different while others are as alien as the beings who live in them. Luckily for every being living in our little corner of existence there exists a membrane that keeps our world away from these other realities; making them both transparent and invisible to us. This membrane is called The Veil.

However nothing in the world is perfect, The Veil is no exception. This mighty wall as cracks and holes that some beings can slip through, allowing one to both leave and enter our world if they knew how to do so. But the true weakness of the Veil is during the month of October. When October comes The Veil begins to weaken and become thinner, allowing for those sensitive to the supernatural forces of the world to see the other realities around us and to allow for easy passage to and out of our reality and into the worlds beyond. This chaotic period is normally kept in check by the warring powers in the underground who all value secrecy.

Yet this year has proven to an unusual one. More beings from beyond are entering our world in a unprecedented rate, more supernatural manifestations are occurring in an alarming rate and to make matters worse more people are beginning to see the secret world that was hidden to them. As the cabals and conspiracies of the occult underground scramble off and investigate to find the connection to these disparate incidents to put a stop to them.

In these weeks before Samhain it may be the outsiders to this secret world of magick and eldritch truths that may hold the fate of the world in their hands.

What's this about?


Gnosis: Season of Samhain is a dark fantasy/survival horror Roleplay. Set in a world that is seems like the modern world, yet just below the surface is a world of conspiracies, dark secrets, occult powers and otherworldly terror. This RP will focus on the outsiders of this secret world. These outsiders are people who only recently discovered that the supernatural is real or are those who had a past experience but for whatever reason never traveled down the hidden paths to the occult underground. These outsides will enter a world of mystery and peril as they search for answers as to why there is an increase of occult activity in the world and if possible hopefully bring an end to them.

However this journey will not be easy as they are entering a world filled with danger at every corner, testing the character’s physical, mental and spiritual fortitude. Death and insanity are often at the character’s sides and if that wasn’t enough the demons and ghosts that haunts within their mind can prove themselves to be a greater danger than the ones outside.

We hope you enjoy your stay in the Occult Underground. Remember, death is only the beginning...

The setting for this RP will be Detroit, Michigan. The center for America's automobile industry and once a great city, Detroit now stands as a decaying shadow of it's former glory. The Metro area of Detroit is very economically and racially-segregated, with poorer minorities living in the city, the white working-class in the eastern suburbs, and the predominantly white, Indian American and Asian American upper-middle-class in the northwestern suburbs/exurbs and the Pointes just east of the city proper. The Metro Detroit area is one of the most racially segregated in the United States.

The decline of the American auto industry in 1970s, combined with simmering racial, economic, and labor tensions, have made it the poster child for, and butt of many jokes about, urban decay and inner-city squalor for much of America. The crumbling ruins of some of its more destitute neighborhoods can create the illusion of one being trapped in a post apocalypse. During 2013 the city filed for bankruptcy, becoming the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history. The "Murder City" has been rife with paranormal activity ever since decline began. Many cults and cabals travel to and hide in the city from their enemies, forsaken creatures roam deserted streets, spirits and beings unknown haunt the ruins, objects with peculiar properties are littered throughout the city and much more bizarre and horrific phenomenon and events occur in the shadows of Detroit. The rise of occult activity started in Detroit and is in the strongest in the city.

Whether your characters live in the city from the start or they were drawn to it by fate, intuition or by their own deductive reason. Many of you would ultimately find yourself in this city to find the cause to the many occult incidents that threatens both the normal and paranormal world.


The characters of Gnosis have been touched by darkness. Some event in your past, something you inherent from your ancestors or your own traumatic brush with dark powers, has opened a channel for the forces of destruction and madness. Such dark events has formed a part of your personality and is the source to most of your character's physical, mental and spiritual problems. Dark secrets will be used to form private sub arcs for the characters to deal with, to see if they will succeed on dealing with their own internal demons or fail against them.This list would include some good examples of what sort of dark secrets characters can have.

Curse: You and/or a family are victims of a terrible curse. Your eldest son sold his soul to the devil. Your youngest son may be destined to kill his farther, without knowing it. Your character may be personally cursed or is suffering from one that was struck by a family member. You may live your life constantly trying to escape from the curse.

Family secret: In your family, there is a well kept secret in which you were initiated to early in your childhood. Maybe your family were members of a cult or criminals. Maybe they kidnapped people and ate them alive or they sacrificed animals in the worship of dark gods. Perhaps they have ties with a crime syndicate or a secret society.

Forbidden knowledge: Somehow, you have come across knowledge that your were not suppose to have. It might be connected to an industrial complex, the military, political parties, crime family, activist groups, a secret occult society, maybe even information relating to the supernatural. Whether it is normal or paranormal knowledge because of it you have enemies lurking in the shadows waiting for the right moment to strike, you may even have this knowledge without even realizing it.

Guilty of crime: Somewhere in your life you were tempted to perform or take part in a terrible crime. You are constantly haunted by a bad conscience. It may also be a memory of a lesser crime in which you have magnified out of proportion with your imagination, you can even have memories of a crime you have committed by accident.

Insanity: Your and/or a family member have a mental illness. You are mentally ill than you can relapse at any time. If it was a family members than they might have contribute to the illness that you have. Your insanity can be linked with an occult or supernatural experience.

Occult experience: You have either participated or have been a witness to occult proceedings. It may have been conjuring otherworldly beings, sacrificial rites, opening portals to worlds beyond, or transforming a human being beyond recognition. The event can be linked to either your family, friends, or your own interest in the occult. If you picked this secret you are not an occultist. You may have done a spell once but in your backstory but for this rp your character won't be using magic.

Pact with dark powers: You made a pact with dark and otherworldy powers. You may have sold your soul to a demon from inferno, sold your freedom to a faerie or even forsworn the rights to your life after deaths, all for power, pleasure, knowledge and/or wealth. Any one who has made a pact with dark forces is constantly terrified of their past catching up with them, some can even try to either escape from their fate or prolong it. You can not use this to gain supernatural powers for this RP

Possessed and haunted: In some point in time you have been the victim of either a spirit, demon or some other entity. It may have possessed you into doing things that to this day you can barely remember or it may have chase you and haunt you where ever you go.
Responsible for medical experiments: In the name of science you performed some dubious experiment in medicine, psychology or any other similar fields. You are haunted by the people you have hurt, crippled or killed in the name of science. You may also be prosecuted by either the victims or their relatives and friends.

Supernatural experience: You have witness something that did not fit in the normal frame of human minds. An event that contradicts the normal framework of reality. This event could have happen anywhere in your life, only that you and maybe a select group of other are aware of the event. Perhaps you disappeared as a child of weeks or months and were found in the forest glades naked and with a wide smile on your face with no memory of what happened or maybe everyone in your town disappeared and rescue workers found only you. Your friends and families torn apart by demons from the outer dark or sunk into the Earth, leaving you as the sole survivor.

Victim of crime: You have been a victim of some horrible crime or was force to partake in some disgusting ritual or event that has marked your life. You rarely, if ever, tell anyone what happened due to both fear and shame.

Victim of medical experiments: You have either partaken or been exposed to a dubious medical, psychological and genetic experiments. The experiment could have been about dreams, drugs, stress or even the effects of certain microorganisms in the human brain. You may even have your genes altered by a genetic experiment your parents were subjected to before your birth.




Rules and Application


Now before we all can begin the game we have to go through the rules so to save ourselves from future headaches.

  • Don't be a dick on the OOC. If your character is a douche bag in the rp than fine, that is allowed. But in the OOC keep things civil. I will not tolerate players slinging insults at each other. I want everyone here to have fun and not walk away pissed off.
  • The word of the Op is the law, all who betray the law will be punished. The words of the CO-OPs is also law and only the Op can override their ruling.
  • Characters with supernatural abilities or are supernatural beings themselves are only available to the Op and CO-OPS. No other players are allowed to use such characters for this present RP (Future installments may allow for more players to create these type of characters). Rule Change: None Co-op players can now have powers but they must be minor and they can only have one. If you posted a character app that had no mention of powers and I accepted it you can not edit in new powers to the app.
  • If your character dies then you can simply replace them with a new character to start anew. Infact, if your character has people in their personal relationship app you can use them as a quick replacement for your deceased character.
  • You can have three different characters active in the RP. If you wish to add in a new character you must either wait for one of your old characters to die or make them into NPCs, doing this would make them into permanent NPCs.
  • No one liners and minimal spelling and grammar errors. in general I want to see effort in most posts and for your posts to be easy to read through. If you do not improve then you would be kicked out of the RP. Also poor spelling, grammar and in general poor writing, are in grounds for application denial.
  • Not participating in the RP for any considerable period of time is grounds for character death. Pray that their end is a merciful one. This can be voided if you TG me the reason for your inactivity.
  • However should a player character who is inactive be part of a vital story arc then they shall become a NPC under either the OP or CO-OPs control until the arc ends, at which point the character in question either leaves the RP to live another day or they die.
  • Inactive characters can be resurrected if the original writer returns; active characters killed during the story cannot be resurrected without good reason.
  • No you can not start off with an assault rifle, rocket launcher, grenade launcher or any other military grade weapons even if you are a soldier.
  • Gnosis is willing to allow dark and mature topics and subjects into the RP but please do not go overboard with the violence, gore, sex, drugs and etc. Keep things tasteful and due remember that there is a age limit in this site and no one wants to bring down the wrath of the mods.
  • Be careful on which dark secrets you pick for your characters. Not only would they determine what negative aspects they will have both physically and mentally (maybe even spiritually) but they can also be the catalyst for subarc to emerge due to those secrets, so make think carefully with those secrets. If you which to keep your character’s dark secrets a mystery from the players at the start just tg them to be and the co-ops
  • No god modding please, that is all.
  • At this point you all are getting sick of reading the rules so before I release you all from this short lived hell I will deliver my final rule. Have fun.

Name: Elizabeth Ashwood

Gender: Female

Profession: Private/Occult Detective, Occultist, Con Artist

Nationality: British (Welsh)

Age: 37

DoB: 10/31/1979

Skills and Abilities: Charismatic: Elizabeth is a very charismatic individual who is capable with communicating with anyone. Her Charisma makes it easy for her to understand people and for people to be drawn to her, making friends and allies easily. Elizabeth can use her charisma to make her attempts at seduction much more effective, to be a good negotiator and diplomat and to allow her to persuade people into following through her ideas; she can even reassure a person if they have doubts about her plans.

Subterfuge: Elizabeth is a very cunning woman who is skilled at deceiving people. Her skill in subterfuge can range from her telling a convincing lie to trick people, to skillfully concealing information and even confusing and/or beguiling people with information she purposefully exaggerated, downplayed or by making the information ambiguous. Her charisma often helps boost her skill in subterfuge. Elizabeth uses this skill along with those of her stage magician to perform confidence tricks to get money from unsuspecting people.

Streetwise: Elizabeth understand how to operate and survive within the seedier side of civilization. You have a talent for blending into the local environment
through your dress, attitude, and knowledge of street slang. You know how to make contact with the black market, gain information, identify bribable officials, recognize underworld gang leaders, or otherwise find out where the “action” is.

Her streetwise also has an occult side. She can use this skill to operate and survive in the Occult Underground. Elizabeth would know not only the attitude, culture and even slangs used in the occult underground but would know the names of independent members of the underground, the various occult secret societies, the names of prominent supernatural beings and how to contact them, gaining information and possible allies and know what is the latest rumor in the underground, as rumors and legends in the underground have the odd habit of likely contains aspects of truth to them.


Stage magician: Elizabeth was trained in the arts of being a staged magician; possessing skills like hypnosis, sleight of hand, pickpocketing, lockpicking, ventriloquism, and escapology. These skills are used whenever she needs to break and enter a location, for her confidence tricks or in the case of the latter skills when she needs to get out of a get out of a tight situation.

Manipulation: Elizabeth uses her cunning, charm and silver tongue to manipulate people around her, get them to do things for her or to fall align in how she wants them to. Whether it be simple civilians, allies and friends or even enemies and rivals. Elizabeth's can manipulate people even when they are not aware of it.

Infiltration: Elizabeth is good at getting into places she has no right being in. Whether it is picking locks, disabling or evading security systems, or knowing the right spots for breaking and entering. Not only can she enter a place without being noticed she can also move stealthy once she is inside her chosen location and hiding from guards inside the location. She can even use these skills to get out as stealthy as well. This skill requires timing and preparation to insure that things go well for her.

Skilled detective: Elizabeth possess has great deduction powers, often using her wits (and magic) to help solve mysteries. Her training and learning on being detective allowed her to notice things that most people would miss. Elizabeth takes everything she observes and forms possible theories to what happened in a crime scene. Elizabeth can also spot things that are easily overlooked or missed by most people.

Intuition: This ability can allow her to "read" other people's body language, choice of words and other subconscious signals. With this ability Elizabeth can try to understand the real purpose of a person's motives and actions without them telling her. She affectionately calls this ability her "Bullshit Detector" as it makes her a living lie detector. However people skilled in the art of deception or truly believe in their own lies can fool her.

Net of Contacts: Elizabeth knows the right peoples in the right places. Elizabeth has an extensive list of contacts from many walks of life. Elizabeth uses these contacts to gain information that she needs, gain items that she requires for a specific situation or even to get help with matter that she can't do alone or because she lacks the needed skills to perform it on her own. Some members in her contact lists however aren't always there for her and for some she would need to talk to plenty of middle men before she can meet them face to face.

Knife nut: Elizabeth knows how to fight well with a knife. However even though she knows how to use a knife well as a weapon doesn’t mean she is a good fighter, in fact she is a poor fighter. Elizabeth would rather use her speed and agility to dodge attacks and find the right moment to stab her opponent in an area that would force them to stop fighting her. She would also use her quick thinking during fights along with fighting dirty to win.

Small arms training: Elizabeth has no interest in guns but she knows that to survive she needs to know how to use a pistol or a revolver. Elizabeth knows how to aim, fire and take care of a small arm. She doesn’t use guns all that often and most of the times flashes her gun to would be attackers to get them to back off but she isn’t afraid on using her revolver if she has no choice.

Occult Studies Elizabeth has knowledge on various occult practices and teachings; kabbalah, alchemy, magic, spiritualism, astrology, demonology, extra-sensory perception, tantrism, satanism, hermeticism, gnosticism, theosophy, thelema, wicca, modern paganism, voodoo, divination, and chaos magic. Elizabeth can identify the cultural traditions informing a ritual by viewing the physical aftermath, supply facts concerning various occult societies, can guess the intent of an occult ritual, know the occult significance of an object and can identify the occult activities from a well informed practitioner, teenage posers, or out-and-out cultists and sorcerers.

Sixth Sense: Elizabeth often has feelings about things, often these feels turn out right. She has premonitions about both bad and good events. A cold shiver down her spine to can alert her to a possible axe killer behind a door or a strange sense can tell her to avoid a doomed air flight. This ability only affects her and not others around her. There are supernatural beings and methods that can either trick out her sixth sense or make a being or person invisible to her sixth sense.

Enhanced Awareness: A strange abilities that some mages possess, which usually manifests to those who had enough experience with the supernatural. This allows Elizabeth to see other dimensions, see fragments of both the past and future and to see and speak to invisible entities like ghosts. This ability, while usually random on when it actives, is always on when it comes to spotting otherworldly beings. Elizabeth can provoke these visions on happening but she would still have no control over them. This ability can make most believe that she is suffering from schizophrenia and indeed should she see something truly horrific and freak out many would see her as crazy.

Magical Intuition: This ability makes Elizabeth act a lot like a magical compass needle as she can sense the power of people, places and objects. This ability also allows Elizabeth to see kirlian auras and determine a person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state by the color of their aura, intense emotions can trigger a pseudo emphatic link in which Elizabeth can feel whatever emotion someone is feeling as long as she sees their aura. Elizabeth can also witness minor occult phenomenon that most minds either can't perceive or ignore and can use magic much more effectively than a normal occultist. Her magical sense also overlap with her normal senses causing a synesthesia effect to her, should she loss control she would act as though she is suffering from dementia-like hallucinations.

Magick:Elizabeth is armed with the knowledge of many spells, rituals and curses, such as evocation, divination, necromancy, black magic curses, illusions, occlumency, invisibility, exorcism, and can use magic to see into and travel into other realms. She also has a wide range of protection magic such as sigils, spirit wards and magic circles that can protect her from both physical and supernatural. Elizabeth most signature ability is synchronicity wave travelling, which is an instinctual supernatural ability for Ashwood to make her own luck. This has led Elizabeth to have uncanny luck at games of chance, the ability to avoid and escape harm, meet the right kind of ally to help prevent or stop an occult event that can kill hundreds, and reshape battles she's fighting to her own accord.

Elizabeth does not have full control over has it can perform feats without her knowing, even at times acting like it isn't working and allowing her to fail or even get harmed only for it to work in the last second. Her ability can only extend to her so often anyone close by her tend to suffer whatever harm, injuries and misfortune that was suppose to fall on her. Powerful beings can also take control over her ability and either shut it off or use it against her, though she still has the option to fight back for control, also if her connection to the freeway was suddenly cut of she would be stuck with sudden bad luck. Elizabeth has no way on turning the ability on or off.

Elizabeth's magical knowledge allows her to find ways to become highly resistant to many psychic attacks such as telepathy, possessions, and mind control and can even use it to evade both mundane and supernatural methods of tracking. Elizabeth can even use the art of counter magic, which either let's her take apart a spell before it can harm her or contain the spell for later usage. However she must first be aware of the spell being used against her and prepare the necessary rituals to either dismantle or contain the spell used against her. She uses divination and scrying spells to gain information to assist her on whatever case she is dealing with.

While Elizabeth's magic can allow her to distort and warp the very fabric of reality does not allow her to do everything. There are some magical feats she lacks the knowledge, items and aptitude to perform and because of the reality warping powers of magic she has to be cautious of doing something wrong with her spells and rituals, sometimes doing something right can result in unexpected effects. Overusing magic can warp her very psyche and it's energies can corrupt her body and soul; not only degrading her mind closer to the depths of insanity, but bring about terrible mutations that would turn her into an insane, inhuman creature. Overusing magic always brings about the attention of both creatures of unremitting horror and fellow practitioners of magic to her location. Magic is not free however as every spell she uses has their own price, though some spells the price comes in years after their use.

Because of the price and drawbacks to magic she often uses it when she needs to and instead relies on her normal abilities first before turning to supernatural methods


Physical description: A Welsh born, Caucasian, woman. Elizabeth height is 5’3 and weighs 130 lbs. Elizabeth as a slim and curvy built and her skin is pale, and possess jade green eyes. Her deep set eyes have dark circles under her eyes due to having trouble sleeping.

Elizabeth’s raven hair is medium-long/past the shoulders-length and it is a unkempt shaggy mess, her hair sticks out at her neck and falls over her shoulders. Elizabeth has an oval shaped face and thin, downward turning lips. Usually these lips are seen forming a grin or smirk.

Elizabeth main attire consists of an ankle length old and grungy black trench coat, black vest with a white dress shirt underneath, a long loose maroon tie, black pants with a maroon belt around the waist, maroon colored boots with black sides and laces, black fingerless gloves.

Elizabeth lacks the piercings that her son has but has many tattoos painted on her body, many depicting occult symbols. These tattoos can be found on her hands, arms, shoulders, legs, stomach, sides and hips. Despite being in her late thirties Elizabeth still appears to be in her early twenties due to good genes she inherited from her mother.

Psychological assessment: A foul-mouthed, disillusioned, sarcastic and cynical woman. Elizabeth is a stubborn, arrogant, reckless and strong-willed woman, sometimes letting her pettiness and vindictiveness get the better of her. She also somewhat selfish and self absorbed, generally doing things for her own self interest and for thrills than for any sort of philanthropy. She also distrust and is hostile towards most forms of authority and is willing to break rules she don't agree with. She can also be rather blunt and harsh, note caring what others think about her opinion and not caring who she is talking too. In moments of self loathing she shows to have both a fatalistic and even nihilistic attitude towards the world and her life, however most of the times she freely contradicts these beliefs.

Elizabeth is a mischievous scoundrel who likes messing with people just to get laughs. This attitude can even make as though she doesn't take most situations as seriously as she should. Elizabeth is also flirtatious as well and will flirt with anyone who catches her interest regardless of their gender or if they are friend or foe. Yet behind the flirts and laughter is a wounded soul, using sarcastic jokes and perverted comments to deflect her true emotions.

However deep inside she is a compassionate humanist, trying her best to make sure that mankind does not fall into the influences of both mortal and supernatural powers that would use humanity for their own ambitions. She also has a rather strange code of honor despite acting like a rogue most of the times. She is also unflinchingly loyal to those she cares and is surprisingly selflessness when she wants to be, even going as far as to help people if their suffering and grief is too much for her to see.

Elizabeth, while being cunning, ambitious and resourceful she also shows great reserves of bravery, dare and nerve even to the most dire and horrific situations, almost to the point that one would think that she either has a death wish or is truly insane. While liking to show herself lazy to most people in truth she understands the value of hard work and when motivated will become diligent in whatever project or job she is working on. A part that Elizabeth never shows is that while she never plays or fights fair she understands what ought to be fair, often being furious when people get puffed up with power and authority that they never earned and when people get punished simply for asking the wrong questions or for being in the way when someone else's enemies pays a visit.

Elizabeth has a love and hate relationship with magic and the occult but if given the choice to either live with them or not, she will always stay with magic due to the fact that she still carries the interest and like for it as she had when she was a child, albeit not in the same level as before. She is also pushed by her guilt and a desire to do some good in her life to not only repay for all of her past mistakes and wrongs but show the world that she can do good.

Elizabeth shrouds herself in a air of mystery, protecting both herself and keeping others away as a form of protection as she knows that most who get close to her have the unfortunate habit of dying. It's due to these death around her that makes Elizabeth work alone and when anyone does work with Elizabeth, she avoids attachment so she won't be as hurt if they get killed.

She is also paranoid of possible enemies from the secret world coming after both her and her son, leading to her on sheltering the boy for his protection and never telling him about who she really is. Elizabeth is an isonomic who also suffers from vivid nightmares whenever she sleeps. Elizabeth is addicted to cigarettes and adrenaline, has a short temper, feels haunted by her past and is actually haunted and hunted down by groups and creatures from the secret world. She is also fighting against depression which is a battle that is easy to manage due to Cade helping her.


Personal relationship: Ashwood Family-

Elizabeth interaction with the rest of her family ranges from barely meeting them, to a lukewarm reactions to a few outright hating her. So far her cousin from Alice is the one she has very good relationship with, seeing her more as a sister than a cousin and her half sister Katherine are also in good terms. Elizabeth never met her father due to him dying before she was born but she was very close to her mother.

Cade Ashwood-

Elizabeth has a close bond with Cade and he is the apple of her eyes, privately she sees him as one of the few good things in her life and her shining light in a world of darkness. Around Cade she acts more like his sister than mother, but she does have her share of motherly moments with him. While she likes to tease and bother her son she only does it out of good fun. Whenever she is around Cade the better parts of her personality tends to come out. While Cade is willing to trust his mother she doesn’t feel that he should know about the Occult Underground. Not only does she fear that a vengeful party from her world can use Cade to get to her, she doesn’t want Cade to practice magic; wanting to keep it and the occult underground away from her son so neither can ruin him like they did to her.

Elizabeth does feel bad for always leaving Cade alone and suspects that he feels abandoned due to her spending so much time with her job. Whenever she isn’t out in the field dealing with the occult she would spend time with her son to make up for lost time. But Elizabeth will admit that her son’s rebellious streak does irche her since it manifests itself in him dating terrible men, of which she is not afraid of telling her son blunty how she disapproves of his choices of lovers.



Sexuality: Bisexual

Items and equipment: A pack of cigarettes, zippo lighter, a cursed knife, silver brass knuckles that is enchanted to hurt spectral beings as well as physical ones, lock-pick set, enchant card, skeleton key, a flask, wallet with money and ID, Nails from the coffin of St. Padua (magical tracking device) a spirit detecting bracelet, military flashlight, tape recorder, handcuffs, multi tool kit, an amulet to protect against any being wishing to harm her, a scrying medallion, an Beaumont–Adams revolver, an old pocket watch, and a Smartphone.

Dark Secrets: Curse, Forbidden Knowledge, Occult Experience, Pact with Dark Powers, Supernatural Experience, Family Secret, Guilty of a Crime,

Bio: Much of Elizabeth’s past is a secret. What is known currently is that she is an orphan with a family friend who raised her for most of her life. From an early age Elizabeth was involved with the occult due to her mother being a witch and possessing many grimoires and enchanted items that she owned that Elizabeth would use. At age nineteen she form a small group of friends and fellow occultists and it was at the time that she had a one night stand with a visiting man from South Africa, a meeting that would end with Cade Ashwood being born nine months later. During the time the group was active Elizabeth had them helping her on raising Cade along with her then girlfriend at the time, Lorraine Ross.

However with the death of Lorraine and the break up the group Elizabeth was forced to raise Cade alone. However there was a two year gape where Elizabeth let Cade by raised by the same man that took care of her until she felt that she was ready to take care of Cade again. It was after getting back her son that she opened her private detective agency, with only herself and her son sometimes helping her; acting as a pseudo secretary whenever she is in their flat and when Elizabeth is around to keep on eye on him to make sure he doesn’t read the wrong case file. Because Elizabeth developed plenty of enemies and rivals from the Underground she has become properly paranoid and fears for her son’s safety, leading her to giving him a sort of sheltered life. Elizabeth’s work and life style as both a detective for normal and supernatural crimes and as a mage and her not wanting her son anywhere near the Occult Underground means that she can be gone for days, leaving her son behind. Elizabeth tries her best to be there for her son and would willing drop cases if she finds them not too important to be there for her only family around.

In Occult Circles, particularly those in London, Elizabeth is a well known name, her rep even spreading to parts in West Europe, a few states in Central and East Europe and the US Occult Undergrounds. She is a walking legend to those who only heard rumors about her, with some thinking that she isn’t a real person but a myth.

Secrets of the Detroit Underground



The city of Detroit may be experiencing a slow and crippling decline that will probably turn the once great city into ruins populated by the poor, disenfranchised, and criminal element but while many see the city as modern day ruins others have seen it as an unlikely sanctuary and hideout from dangers that most people remain unaware of. The Detroit Underground is a part of the larger United States Occult Underground but in many ways it differs from the other undergrounds found in America's great cities. Most of the powerful groups in Detroit only exist in the city alone unlike other powerful players in the US Underground who can have many branches throughout the state, with a few lucky ones having branches in other countries.


The ties to both the underground and the criminal underworld is much closer in the Detroit Underground than in other places, with Chicago being a close competitor to rival the city in the connection to the two secret worlds. However while the two worlds are more connected not every criminal knows of the underground's exists, most hearing many of the supernatural and magical happenings from it as rumors and urban legends. Some criminals even loath that they have to interact with the underground which they see as a den of monsters, deviants, perverts, psychopaths, weirdos; the only reason they put these feelings aside is to get money from the people and beings they hate along with gaining supernatural boons for their businesses.


The greater US underground for the most part leaves the Detroit Underground alone, many ignoring the city and the underground inside to do as they please with only a few groups paying attention to them both, usually to find and hunt down an enemy that fled to the Detroit Underground. However many are beginning to notice that Detroit was not only the first location to see a rise in paranormal incidents but afterwards more incidents appeared far more than other locations, making many believe that the source is in the city.


The once isolated ecosystem of the Detroit Underground is now disrupted by the surge of new groups and creatures rushing to the city to find the source and while many try their best to ignore them a few do offer assistance from time to time; another group hates the sudden influx of outsiders who are storming into the city and are threatening their ways of life and have responded in force, especially when some groups in the Detroit area were destroyed by some groups who blamed members of the Detroit Underground for the rise of occult activities that threaten to expose the paranormal world to the masses. There is now tensions between the groups of Detroit and those who are looking to find the source to everyone's trouble, a tension that at any moment can erupt into a shadowy, occult war.

Can I make a character who is a comedian? If so, he is only using his career as a buffer to restrain memories from his past, ala Silent Hill. Also, his comedy act is a mixture of the Marx Brothers and abit of Buster Keaton and the three stooges. Also, his dark secret involves the fact that his parents were members of a cult that worshipped a snake god. He is also trying to hide the fact that his parent's tried to sacrifice him as a toddler. His subplot would probably have members of the cult stalking him and trying to kidnap him in a attempt to finish the sacrifice.
Also, this is Buster Keaton.

Name: Caitlyn "Caitie" Grey

Gender: Female

Profession: Secretary to the Cabinet Secretary of the United Kingdom

Nationality: British (English)

Age: 26

DoB: 30 January, 1990

Skills and Abilities:

Genius level intellect: She posses an IQ of roughly 155
Combat expertise: With firearms and explosives
Chronoprohiberis: Caitie can stop time for those a 30 metres radius of her for about three minutes. During the three minutes (relative to her), she is the only for which time flows normally.

Physical description: Caitie is blonde with pale blue eyes. She has a petite build, standing at 5 foot 4 inches, and weighting in at 98 pounds. She is a fashionable woman, preferring Gianfranco Ferré and Christian Dior labels. Although beautiful, she doesn't stand noticeably out.

Psychological assessment: Caitie is egocentric and psychopathic, as well as obsessive compulsive. On the surface she is courteous, cultured, and sophisticated. Behind the facade of a seemingly normal existence, she hides frequent murderous tendencies. Her victims may seem random, but she signals out those who exhibit poor taste or bad manners. She also kills those she views as degenerate, such as rapists. Caitie also exhibits a sadistic behaviour, and gains pleasure from gruesome and painful killings.

However, Caitie is also goal orientated, and her obsessive personality leads her towards this dark secret...

Personal relationship: None of significance, at least in human understandings.

Sexuality: Asexual.

Items and equipment: Knives, small bombs, and sidearms.

Dark Secrets: I'll TG you the details

Bio:

Caitie was born into the aristocratic Grey Family, the titular Lords of Dollington in the West Country, not far from Gloucester. Her father, Lord Charles Grey, 12th Earl Dollington, was a member of the House of Lords and one of England's largest landowners. Her mother, Matilda, was a French witch of considerable power and knowledge. Both of Caitie's parent's died before she was fifteen; her father from cancer, and her mother from an unknown ailment.

Even before her parents' deaths, however, Caitie displayed abnormal behaviour. Even as a young child she was incredibely intelligent; by the age of twelve, she was able to recite the entire Necrominicon--without having even seen the grimoire. Around the time of her mother's death, when Caitie was fourteen, she had already developed her Chronoprohiberis abilities. It was also at this time that she began her milling spree. She began using bombs as a way of disposing of her victims, leaving no traces

Caitie graudated from Oxford University, having studied English literature. Almost immedaitely thereafter she moved to London and began working in a carrer in poltics. Her family connexions and intelligence allowed her to progress quickly, becoming Secretary to the Cabinet Secretary of the United Kingdom by the age of 25.

Currently, she is in Detroit on business...

Forbidden Knowledge (learned of Occult happenings through Police Case Files)

Bio: Anthony Casteliano was born in New York City on 2/12/58 to an Italian mother and father, and was raised in Manhattan. His life was regular, though he went on to join the United States Marine Corps, participating in the Iraq War before settling down in his home city of New York City with a wife and two children and becoming an officer.

After responding to a single case involving murders in a small warehouse and wounding or killing most a gang with his partner, he was promoted to Captain in the NYPD. During a walk down Manhattan, he was ambushed by survivors in the same gang, killing his wife and kids, and leaving him scarred down his leg and back. Infuriated and depressed, he went back to the warehouse on his own and finished off the rest of the gang.

Captain Casteliano has joined the PD of Detroit, the city his brother moved to in the nineties for work, surprisingly enough. Contrary to his belief, the killers of his family escaped and never showed at the warehouse, and have closely monitored his activity, waiting to seek their own vengeance. Casteliano has also started responding to strange cases involving an increasingly-popular occult movement. He never believed what they did was true, but a small, small part of him want some to find out. Now, he can.

Name: Cade Ashwood
Gender: Male
Profession: High School Student (last year)
Nationality: British (Welsh)
Age: 18
DoB: September 18, 1998
Skills and Abilities:

Cooking:

Growing up, Cade was pretty much forced to learn how to cook for himself due to the fact that his mother was inept when it came to the task and that she was often away on business trips or handling criminal cases as a detective in the city of London.

Charismatic:

Inherited from his mother, Cade is a very charming individual who is capable of communicating with almost anyone. His Charisma gives him the ability to understand others more easily and makes it considerably easier for him to makes friends.

Photographic memory:


Cade is blessed with photographic memory. He’s capable of remembering and reciting everything he has read with relative ease, which has helped him in terms of schooling, and he’s capable of remembering faces both in pictures and in real life.

Perceptive:

He’s more perceptive than most people, and while he’s no private eye, he’s capable of noticing things that most people would easily overlook.

Many Hidden Abilities[/b]


Physical description:

Cade is mix race. A by-product of a welsh woman by the name of Elizabeth and an African man of unknown background. He definitely gets his height from his unknown father. Standing at around 5’11, he dwarfs his mother in terms of height and stature, weighing in about 165 pounds. He has a thin, yet slightly muscular build and his skin is dark the same shade as carmel, which contrast with his mother's pale skin tone, and possess brown eyes that are so dark that they appear black in most lightnings.

His raven-coloured hair is similar in composition to his mother’s, though his is curlier and thicker than her’s. His eye and facial structure are more similar to his mother than his father and while his lips are slightly thicker and more round he still possess the trademark Ashwood smirk.

Unlike his mother, Cade possess no tattooed on his body. However both of his ears are pierced and oftens wears a blue Paddy Pro Polo Shirt and a pair of blue Lexington. Along with slim,straight leg jeans and a pair of gray long term gunner sneaker or other more casual wear.

He posses a thin stubble-beard that decorate his chin and upper lip area. His hair is styled where the sides are faded and a clump of minimalistic curly hair resting at the top in a mohawk-like fashion.(http://i1.wp.com/therighthairstyles.com ... .jpg?w=500)


[i]Psychological assessment:[/b]

Cade has lived a slightly sheltered life, which has mostly stemmed from his mother’s paranoia of the dangers of the supernatural world. He’s blissfully ignorant of his magical heritage as an Ashwood and seems content with his life in London, although he is currently searching abroad for colleges.

He’s friendly towards others, although he can be very sarcastic and cynical at times. He thinking in a very logical manner despite his naive nature and has a strong moral compass.

Personal relationship:

Ashwood Family-

Cade doesn’t know a vast majority of his family members and most of those that he is aware of are dead. His grandmother and grandfather died long before he was even born. However he does get along quite well with his aunt and cousin Alice, who lives in Canada.

Elizabeth Ashwood (Mother)-


He has a close bond with Elizabeth and looks up to her. However he sometimes feels as if she’s hiding something from him and has also experience feelings of neglect and abandonment due to her frequent trips away from home, although he holds not resentment towards her and understands that she needs to work to provide for the both of them.

Boyfriend Kyde Johnson-

While he quite liked Kyde, Elizabeth didn’t approve. At all. Though she kinda had a point, what parent would want their child dating a juvenile delinquent who tried to act like some sort of white gangster, with his sagging pants and obscur tattoos.

Sexuality: Bisexual
Items and equipment:

Iphone 7.
A pair of bluetooth headphones.
Wallet with money, ID, and driver’s license.
Backpack with laptop and reading books.

Bio:

Born the 8 of september 1998. Cade is the son of Elizabeth Ashwood and an unknown man of African descent. Despite being born as an Ashwood, Cade doesn’t exhibit any of the family’s magical heritage and is otherwise ignorant of the magical world on a whole, though he remains the apple of his mother’s eye even as he’s transitioning into adulthood. Now if only Elizabeth could teach him to have better taste in dating boyfriends/girlfriends before he leaves for college.

So long as they don't have supernatural powers you can go wild. You can decide if your character had a supernatural experience before the start of the RP or they never had such experience.

Name
Jürgen Wilhelm Wagner

Gender
Male

Profession
Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry (Cambridge)

Nationality
British

Age
51

DoB
17 November

Skills and Abilities
- Jürgen holds a PhD in Organic Chemistry from Cambridge University, and as such, is highly knowledgeable on organic compounds and their applications. He carries a copy of his thesis, a 562 page volume entitled On Haloalkene Reactions with Dicarboxylic Acids, everywhere he goes.

- Jürgen is a 2nd dan judo practitioner.

Physical description

Ethnicity
3/4 German
1/4 Swedish

Physical Details
Height: 177cm
Weight: 64kg
Hair colour: White
Eye colour: Green

Usual clothes
Too varied to make any comments, but Jürgen has a black turtleneck which he is very fond of; when wearing it, regardless of temperature, he always rolls its sleeves to just below his elbows.

Psychological assessment
Coffee addiction.

...

Aside from that, Jürgen is a quiet and enigmatic individual, preferring to work in as small a group as possible, if not alone. He understands the value of human relationship, and has a circle of very close friends in the faculty (not unlike J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis' Inklings club) whom he drinks and chats with very often, but aside from them, he's more of a loner. Not once has Jürgen ever brought up the tentacle incident to anyone else.

Personal relationship
Married with 2 children

---

Margaret Gabrielle Wagner née Anderson (50 years old / Spouse)
Alric Wagner (28 years old / Son)
Hermann Wagner (25 years old / Son)

Sexuality
Heterosexual

Items and equipment
- J. W. Wagner, On Haloalkene Reactions with Dicarboxylic Acids
- Frameless reading glasses
- iPhone 4

Dark Secrets
Jürgen was once attacked by a tentacle while walking along a street at night. Just a random tentacle, flying out of a dark alley. It grazed his arm, wriggled about for a minute or so (much to Jürgen's horror), and then retreated into the darkness.

That incident was 23 years ago, while Jürgen was still working on his PhD. He had not told anyone else about it, and (much to his delight) no similar incidents have ever happened to him after that one.

Bio
Jürgen W. Wagner was born to German parents living in the United Kingdom. He led a relatively normal childhood, attending school, and then going on to do a course in chemistry at Cambridge University. As both his parents were quite well off, Jürgen was able to pursue higher qualification, doing a Masters immediately after his first degree, and then starting on his PhD.

It was during this time that he had his first and only supernatural encounter. A tentacle had leapt out at him from the darkness while he was returning home after running some late night errands, and would have killed him if he hadn't spotted it in his peripheral vision and dodged. Terrified, Jürgen rushed back home, and didn't leave his house for days. He had developed a high fever, and excused himself from all the meetings with his PhD supervisor.

Thankfully for him, Jürgen recovered soon after, and resumed his life, earning his doctorate and going on to join the chemistry faculty at Cambridge. No other incidents popped up afterwards.

And yet, that tentacle in the darkness continued to claw at Jürgen's mind. He couldn't help but think of it, and though his work definitely wasn't affected by the thing, Jürgen was definitely not willing to let it slide.

With his wife's advice and consent, Jürgen packed his bags and went on leave to investigate this mysterious thing.

Roleplay experience
I think you know me. :P

Theme Song
Felix Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture Opus 26

Random facts
- Jürgen speaks fluent German and Russian.

Dark Secrets
On one of his birthdays, Kirishima went to a restaurant with his wife to be (then his date), Fumiko Ōno, to eat dinner. When she went to the toilet, dinner was served; on the plate of gnocchi, the chef had written, with pesto, "REMEMBER CHERNOBYL". Kirishima looked up at the waiter.

The waiter's pupils were maroon, like the colour of blood. The tall man smiled briefly, before walking away. That moment, Kirishima collapsed onto the floor unconscious, only waking up two weeks later, in hospital.

To this day, he hasn't figured out what had happened.

Bio
Born in Taipei to a Japanese father and a Chinese mother, Hideki Kirishima is the eldest of three boys. Three years after his birth, his family moved to Sapporo. Here, Kirishima grew up and attended school like any normal person.

He hated the education system, however, and could not wait to get out of it. After finishing high school, Kirishima entered the prestigious Hokkaidō University, earned a degree in journalism, and then left the Japanese education system for good. He worked as a journalist for various news agencies for a while, but was soon noticed by the public after publishing a particularly well written article in a food magazine praising a ramen restaurant he had eaten at.

Kirishima soon went into the culinary industry as a food critic, writing articles for various magazines. It was on one particular night, simultaneously a date and a critique session, that the "Remember Chernobyl" incident took place. The 24 year old food critic woke up in hospital, clueless as to what had happened.

He and his fiancé put the incident behind them. They married, moved to Los Angeles, CA, and had a daughter. Here, Kirishima decided that it was time to let go of that bizarre, supernatural occurrence for good.

Hopefully, that was possible.

Bio: Bill was born in Denver, Colorado to unusual circumstances. His parents were members of a religious cult called " The Followers", a cult that worshipped Apep, the Egyptian chaos serpent. His earliest memory was on his third birthday. He remembers being taken to a warehouse in the outskirts of the city by his parents and a man they called " Uncle Jim". He was brought into the warehouse where his parents laid him down on a altar. What his parents did next would haunt him for the rest of his life. His father brought out a obsidian knife and tried to stab him in the chest in a attempt to sacrifice him. His father missed, but cut him in the cheek. Fortunately, the police came before his father could finish the job. It turns out that his Uncle John got suspicious of his parent's cult and called the police on them.

After this event, Bill went to live with his Uncle John, a professional comedian. His Uncle turned out to be a father-figure and role model to Bill. Though he lived a seemingly normal childhood, he often had nervous breakdowns in public or at school. These breakdowns were caused by the traumatic memory of his father trying to kill him. On his 13th birthday, he was nearly kidnapped by a man in a black sedan while walking home from his birthday party. The thing that made the kidnapper stand out was the fact that he had a snake tattoo on his face. When he got home, he had a massive mental breakdown when he realized that his parents had the same tattoo. His Uncle was forced to send Bill to a private boarding school in a attempt to keep a second kidnapping attempt from happening. During his time at the private school, he developed a liking for comedians like Buster Keaton, The Marx Brothers, and the Three Stooges.

After graduating from the Private School, Bill decided to become a comedian and model his act after the comedians he admired during his time at school. He spent the next five years developing an act with his cousin Mikey which involved both jokes and physical comedy in the form of skits. After two years of practice, Mikey and Bill tested out their act at the local civic center and were positively received by the audience. They then spent the next three years touring the state hoping to make it big. Behind the scenes however, Bill's mental breakdowns were becoming more and more frequent with reoccurring nightmares about snakes attacking him. On his 31st birthday, they finally managed to book a show at Detroit with a promise that there was a talent agent in the audience and that if he like their performance, he would take them in as clients. They are currently preparing for their show.
