Trying for something a bit different. Not strictly a villain, depends on the situation.

Villain APP:
Name/Alias: Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn
Age: 29
Gender: Female
Appearance:
Image

Personality: Kooky, crazy, silly, outgoing, eccentric, quirky - whatever you would like to call it. She enjoys behaving weirdly to the extent that 'normal' could be considered an insult. She deviates between two crafted personalities, 'Harleen Quinzel' and 'Harley Quinn', the latter of which is usually the more dominant though most of the time she behaves as a mix of the two. Harleen is the more serious, well-behaved and moral side of while Harley is the clown princess that everyone knows and loves. Although she is a highly intelligent individual she masks this through her generally ditzy behaviour and a strong (put-on) New York accent. Despite some obvious antisocial inclinations she is not a psychopath or without empathy and does have her own twisted sense of right and wrong. She finds it easy to mimic the behaviour of other more assertive personalities such as the Joker and is at risk of becoming emotionally dependent on and dominated by those types of people.
Affiliation: Nobody since the Joker disappeared.
Race: Human.
Backstory: Born Harleen Quinzel in Brooklyn, New York to a Jewish family. Harleen was the oldest child of four and the only girl. Her father was a drunkard and abusive to herself, her siblings and her mother (that is, when he wasn't in prison). The Quinzel household was greatly chaotic and left Harleen striving for a neat and orderly life. She became fascinated by criminal psychology and craved an answer to her question: why do people go to such great lengths to hurt themselves and the people that they love? After graduating high school she attended Gotham University on a gymnastic scholarship where she studied to become a psychiatrist. She fancied herself as someone capable of fixing and restoring order to a broken mind.

Harleen was an extremely gifted student and flew through her studies at G.U., quickly working her way up and had her M.D. by the age of 24. Working with ordinary people and their uninteresting problems (phobias, anxiety, etc.) quickly bored her and she craved to work with much more exciting, extreme personalities. Thus she was assigned as an intern to the infamous Arkham Asylum. Her calling was realised, amongst the many infamous killers, psychopaths and supervillains, but one case in particular began to catch her eye more than any other - an unknown individual, who went by 'the Joker'. His personality attracted her, his mental state attracted her, the things that he had done attracted her. The Joker was unique, and Harleen strived to understand and hopefully help him. They conversed frequently on a variety of topics in an effort to understand the man behind the makeup, his charisma and intelligence surprising her. Soon enough it was him taking turns analysing her personality instead, helping diagnose her problems and offering solutions. An insane man and a reasoned man existed at times simultaneously, which further fascinated her. He gave Harleen a pet name, a play on words due to how her name seemed similar to the word harlequin - 'Harley Quinn'. She was falling for him and by the time she was aware of this it was too late. After being confronted by her superiors who expressed their concerns that Harleen had overstepped the doctor-patient boundary and distressed by rumours that either she or Joker could be moved to Belle Reve to separate them, she donned a costume and assisted the Joker in breaking out of the asylum. Harley Quinn was born.

The Joker and Harley Quinn became an inseparable pair, an infamous crime-causing duo feared throughout Gotham. Despite her obvious affections for the Joker these were mostly ignored by him, preferring to use her as another tool against his own primary fascination - the Batman. Batman quickly became the enemy of both of them, Harley seeing Batman as the main obstacle to the Joker settling down and retiring from his life of crime, while the underlying Harleen saw Batman as the driving force behind his destructive behaviour. But when Batman left, so did the Joker. One day he simply vanished, having lost his passion for crime with Batman gone. Leaving her alone Harley at first wandered like a broken compass, eventually remembering herself and recovering an independent identity. Harleen and Harley have blended, becoming one and the same and she is comfortable as both. Harleen is the psychiatrist by day, and Harley the law-breaking villain by night.
Powers/Weapons/Tech:
  • Big hammer.
  • Immunity to toxins and poisons thanks to Poison Ivy.
Weaknesses:
  • Harleen is a mentally damaged individual from a broken home. Her time spent with the Joker led to her forging her 'Harley Quinn' persona, her dominant personality. She has somewhat recovered since the Joker has gone, regaining her independence and allowing 'Harleen' to return, her current personality a mixture of the two. Certain individuals and memories can trigger one personality or the other.
  • Dependent personality disorder. She is at risk of becoming dependent on others for her emotional needs, in turn becoming increasingly loyal to them oft to the point of infatuation. She was freed of the Joker's influence not by herself but by him, getting bored once Batman left Gotham and eventually vanishing without a trace. Harley's mental state has improved in his absence, although there is a risk that she could find someone else to fill the emotional vacuum left by the Joker.
Skills:
  • Adept at hand-to-hand combat and a variety of firearms.
  • Skilled gymnast after years of practice.
  • Likes to sing.
  • MD in psychiatry and is good at analysing others and their mental deficiencies while purposefully ignoring her own.
RP Examples: Only been in a superhero RP once before so they're both from that. Examples as Batman: One, two.
Extra Information
Day Job: Practises as a psychiatrist under a false name.
Living place: Rents a place in the rough part of town not far from Crime Alley.
Voice Actor: Margot Robbie.
Likes/Dislikes: She likes fun. Dislikes boring stuff. Her definitions are highly subjective and change frequently.
Did you read the rules? Yes.

Can I get a review on my app so far? That’s really what I’m waiting on before I make the bio, plus I want to know if my faction app will be allowed.
IVE GOT TOOOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS!

Seriously I have way too much time to spend on RPs. It’s actually kinda sad.

I'm not a Co-op or the OP so just take this as friendly criticism, but your character seems fine to me. The only things I would say is make sure your Salvation gun is a special case us deal if you keep it how it is. Having something that can almost insta-kill people isn't really a good thing in an RP sense. Make it have limited ammo or only used on the most dangerous cases. The other thing is that if your character's weakness is something mental like a god complex or an obsession, then it is important to play to those weaknesses if they come up. Physical weaknesses are easier to exploit because they have an outside effect on the character, but a mental one is completely on the player to portray. It's up to you how you play the weakness but if you want them to actually mean anything then they have to actually give your character a disadvantage.

Again, I'm not a person in a position of power, these are just the things I thought up while looking at your character and thought I might share them with you.
I believe that madness can find more madness, and that every ounce of madness has a spark of truth. And truth, as you know, has a way of depressing people who don't want to find it.

No one is 100% honest... We all keep 20% of the truth from the world, to protect ourselves & sometimes others.

Haedros 92712 wrote:Hero APP: (Delete Everything in Parentheses including this)
Name/Alias: Elias Shields A.K.A the Crimson Thorn
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Appearance:

Personality: Elias is a two sided man. On the one side, he is dashing, debonair, sly, cunning, and above all, charming. He is skilled at reading people, and discerning their personalities simply by appearance alone. However, there is another side to this coin. Elias is cruel, maniacal, sadistic, manipulative, and a borderline fanatic. He believes that only he has the true rights to decide who is a villain, and who is a hero, and murders those he contradict his belief.
Race: Human
Backstory: (how did they get their powers, and why turn to a life of crime, Two Paragraphs)
Powers/Weapons/Tech:
Weapons: Twin pistols, Judgement, and Salvation. Judgement is incapable of direct kills, as it’s bullets (the only ones it’s compatible with) are unable to penetrate the skin. However the bullets do cause immense pain upon contact. The other pistol, Salvation, ensures a quick death wherever the bullet hits, as all bullets are coated in a special poison that kills within minutes of being hit. This gun is rarely used however, as it has limited ammo, and Elias believes that the people he kills in the sake of his own beliefs should die slow, painful deaths, thus Judgement.
His knives: Elias has a lot of knives. He stores them in various areas of his Order outfit.
Abilities: Elias’ ability is to channel a strange energy called fractal. This energy, visible to the human eye, resembles mirror like glass. It can be used to form improvised weapons, create illusions by reflecting light, or even trap somebody in an alternate dimension, called the “Looking Glass.” This layer of reality is a dimension that Elias draws his power from, and he can temporarily trap people inside it. However, the dimension will eventually release them. Elias himself can also hide in the “Looking Glass.”
Tech: Despite appearing medieval in nature, the Order outfit contains some rather high tech equipment, including bullet proof fiber armor, a rebreather in the mask, as well as a gas filter, and multiple optical lenses in the eyes allowing him to see night vision, infrared, and even detect radio waves. The mask also holds a built in communications system. His boots contain shock absorbers to protect him from great falls, and his left glove has a built in grapple hook. His right hand has an extendable needle that shoots narcotics into those hit by the needle.
Weaknesses: Elias’ fractals can be broken if enough pressure is applied. This doesn’t hold true in his “Looking Glass”, but outside of that dimension, the glass can be broken with a force of about 889 newtons, or 200 pounds of force. Another thing is that he often underestimates his opponents, as he has a pretty major god complex. This god complex often clouds his judgement, making him consider himself near immortal, purely because he has power at his fingertips, and believes that he is a true god among men, destined to pass judgement on mortals.
Skills: Hand to hand combat (armed and unarmed), marksmanship, manipulating people, interrogation, hacking, tracking, and reading people.
RP Examples: Holy Lykos’ Shadowrun RP
Cyberiad Council’s Yigros.
Extra Information (Optional, and for enjoyment and Immersion)
Day Job: CEO of a minor business.
Living Place: East End District, Gotham
Voice Actor: (name and preferably a sound bit if possible)
Likes/Dislikes: Likes: Frank Sinatra, music from that generation, obedience
Dislikes: Modern music (rap, heavy metal), sweets, loud noise (though he loves the screams of “heathens and heretics” he strikes down), children.
Theme Song: N/A (I might add one later)
Did you read the rules? Yes

Faction APP
Faction Name: The Order of Reapers
Nature: Vigilante, though they walk the fine line between vigilante and villain.
Leader: Elias Shields, A.K.A. Crimson Thorn
Secret Base: Somewhere in Crime Alley (or as it used to be called, Park Row)
Goals: To wipe out all those the order considers “evil”
History: A series of gruesome murders though out Gotham, and at the center of it all, a group of fanatics calling themselves “the order.” This “order” took root in Gotham soon after the Batman began protecting Gotham. They considered him to be an evildoer, commiting harm on others, despite the fact that they’re criminals. Soon after they’re formation, the began acting as they’re own vigilante group, killing indiscriminately in the name of “peace.” They’ve killed a few major figures in Gotham, from politicians, to police chiefs, to minor heroes and villains.

Personality: Calm, cold, quiet, and observational.
Race: Human
Backstory:
Ed Johnson joined the Army upon graduating high school in North Texas. His family couldn't afford to send him to college, so the Army was his only real option. Upon completing his training, he was almost immediately sent into combat in Iraq. He was eventually promoted to sergeant. Than on his second tour of duty, he took three bullets to the leg while in a firefight with insurgents. The injury was serious enough for him to be given a medical discharge. He returned home, and worked at his dad's garage for a year, before drifting up to Gotham.

Upon moving to Gotham, he worked odd jobs for a while, and eventually got a job with the University as a security guard. By that point, he had realized Gotham was starting to have a higher crime rate because of Batman leaving. So he decided to do something about it. He had always been quick with a handgun, so he pulled on his old combat gear, found a gas mask/night vision goggle combo at a store, and strapped on his M1911. He wanted to fight for justice and clean up the streets, preferring to take criminals alive, but killing them if he needed to. He took on the moniker "Gunslinger" as a pseudonym.

Patriotic centrist American, who is vaguely right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.
Call me Pax. I take things literally, being a literal person.
Copy and paste this into your sig if you think we should colonize other planets.

Hero APP:

Name/Alias: Barbara Gordon/Batgirl
Age: 25
Gender: Female
Appearance:
Image


Personality: Studious, thoughtful and idealistic with a strong sense of justice and fairness. A perfectionist. Quite serious yet kind and open-hearted, especially towards underdogs and the disadvantaged. Not much for shenanigans, a bit of a killjoy in social situations. Compulsively tidy, bordering on OCD and an overall fussbudget. Might be in need of a psychiatrist to address this issue.

Race: Human

Backstory: Tragedy and the burden of responsibility were thrust upon young Babs at an early age when her mother succumbed to cancer. The eight-year-old Barbara became head of the household, taking care of her younger brother Jimmy while her dad worked the long hours of a police lieutenant. Her lack of free time and her savant-like ease at school didn’t endear her to her classmates and she had few friends. Despite her love and attention, Jimmy started exhibiting disturbing behavior and had to be institutionalized. Babs took this as a personal failure on her part, increasing her need to be perfect until it became an obsession. She turned to martial arts and physical training as a form of therapy, a way to channel her frustration and focus her energies. At the same time, she devoured books on any and all topics to sharpen her mind. She considered fiction, other than the classics, frivolous but she enjoyed detective novels, everything from Nancy Drew to Sherlock Holmes, because the stories were like puzzles she could solve.

A real-life puzzle presented itself to her when she turned fifteen. Secret phone calls between her dad and a mystery person, her dad hurrying off, whereabouts unknown in the dead of night. Even his precinct captain unaware of what he was up to. Babs became concerned, began thinking the unthinkable. That her dad had fallen in league with the underworld families that ran crime in Gotham. No, impossible. Not her dad. Maybe they were blackmailing him? Babs figured she could help him. Afterall, she wasn’t a child anymore. And not to brag (okay, she was bragging) but she was quite a good detective in her own right! She solved the mystery but it wasn’t the answer she was looking for. It wasn’t a gang or the mob, it was The Batman. The newly-arrived cowled and cloaked vigilante striking fear into the hearts of the city’s criminals. No one knew his true identity. How could Babs resist a puzzle like that! After much legwork and computer time, she confronted Bruce Wayne at his stately manor, presented her evidence, and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse- train her or be outed. She got her wish. Her double-life as a crimefighting sidekick continued until she went off to college, majoring in criminology, computer and library sciences. Graduating with multiple degrees, she splits her time between crimefighting and work these days. Trying to chart her own path from under the shadow of the Bat.


Powers/Weapons/Tech:
Costume: Black long-sleeve compression top and black tights with yellow/gold bat insignia on chest. Made of ballistic spandex woven with micro-denier Kevlar. Effectively bulletproof up to .44 handgun rounds. Black cowl. Black cape with yellowish-gold underside. Made of a thicker Kevlar composite able to withstand up to .30 caliber rifle rounds. Yellow gloves and formfitting boots. Steel-toed and flat heeled. Babs strongly believes that real heroines don't wear heels.

Utility Belt: Yellow, composed of impact and heat proof Lexan polycarbonate. Contains (but not limited to):
Grapple Gun: Compressed air powered. Launches up to 50 feet of high tensile cable. Motorized winch able to lift 250 pounds of dead weight.
Batarangs: Yes, she stole the idea from Batman. So, sue her. Oh, that's right, she's a lawyer. *Palmface* Her batarangs are less gimmicky than the Dark Knight's. Essentially made of light-weight aluminum/steel alloy, they possess sharpened edges and are used as blunt-force throwing weapons or cutting weapons, good for sawing ropes and such.
Throwing Orbs: Small, hollow ball bearings. Explosive (C-4, Flash-Bang, Signal Flash) or Gas (Smoke, CS, Sleeping.)
Gas Mask: Compact. Fits over nose and mouth.
Oxygen Cylinder: Pen-size. Good for 30 minutes of use.
Collapsible Baton
Taser: Able to incapacitate a 350lb subject.
Flex-Cuffs: Standard-issue, plastic.
Mini-Bolas: Marble-size, weighted ends. High-tensile steel wire.
Enhanced Vision Goggles: Ultra-thin, wraparound specs. Night-Vision, IR, UV spectrum.
Shrieker: Sonic grenade. Size of a hockey puck.
Electronic earpieces: Provide enhanced hearing and sonic protection.
Lock picks: Various sizes. Able to open 95 percent of lock configurations in common use.
Smartphone: Acts as crime lab, fingerprint analyzer, DNA sampler, digital lockpick, etc., etc. Also makes phone calls. Texting too!

Vehicle:
Modified Suzuki Hayabusa Cycle: Black with armor-plated cowling and armored, 'run-flat' tires. Top speed- 180mph.




Weaknesses: Because of her perfectionist/OCD personality, bordering on a high-functioning autism, has a slight loss of edge in highly fluid, highly chaotic situations. Likes things neat and tidy; her fighting style can be too adherent to correct form, making her moves predictable to a really skilled opponent. (But the opponent would need to be really skilled to pick up on this.) Also, naïve and a little too trusting at times. Interpersonal skills can be awkward, can seem alternately too cheery or too cold at times.

Skills:
Martial Arts Master: Black belt or equivalent in 15 forms of martial arts including Karate, Jujitsu, Aikido, Kung Fu, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, Drunken boxing, Capoeira and Savate.
Eidetic Memory: Able to learn and retain knowledge with photographic precision.
Detective Mind: Extensive training and learning in all aspects of criminology including forensic sciences, criminal methodology and psychology. Possesses deductive reasoning skills in the upper .1 percentile.
Computer Hacker: Extraordinary, almost intuitive level of understanding of systems hardware and programming code. Able to penetrate networks at the highest level of security, not only US government systems but those of foreign intelligence services as well.
Master Lock-Picker and Infiltrator: Expert knowledge of site security protocols and equipment (motion detectors, laser grids, IR tripwires, etc.) and ways to defeat them. Able to pick virtually any lock. Skills extend to safecracking as well.
Expert mechanic: Familiarity with automotive engine and mechanical systems (can hotwire a Porsche 911 in less than two minutes.) Also skilled electrician, able to create electronic code keys, physically patch into security cameras not linked to a network.
Escape Artist: Can get out of ropes, chains, handcuffs, straitjackets.

RP Examples: (At least Two regardless of whether i have rp'ed with you before or not) I play different versions of Babs. In the first example, she's a defense attorney by day with short dark hair. Just wanted to clarify to avoid any confusion.

Barbara didn’t say anything. She simply folded the single sheet of paper from the Justice Dept in half and it disappeared inside her briefcase again. Crossing her hands in her lap, she took a deep breath. Looked Harley in the eye.
“We both know I can’t do that. I could lie and tell you sure, I can get you out of here for good but you would see right through it. And I wouldn’t insult your intelligence like that.” She paused for effect. “What I CAN do, I can get you out of here, temporarily and in my custody, for however long it takes to track down that arsenal.”
Her sharp gaze fixed on the psychotic woman in front of her, trying to gauge her reaction, searching for the smallest twitch or expression that would give her away. “Sure, you could bolt the minute you step foot past these gates. Or worse still, take me hostage. I might be a ‘little savior’ but I’m not stupid, Harl. And if you did, let’s be honest, there wouldn’t be a thing I could do to stop you. But…if you did, you’d be throwing away your one and only chance to save yourself.”
She let that sink in a moment before continuing.
“Or maybe you don’t care, Harley. Seems you’re perfectly willing to sacrifice yourself for your Mistah J.” Babs did a mocking imitation of Harl’s voice, perhaps to get back at her for the ‘Ms. Gordon’ bit from earlier. No, that hadn’t escaped Babs notice and as much as he hated to admit it, it had gotten under her skin a little. “But let me ask you this, Harley? Does the Joker care about YOU? You said it yourself, he should have come for you by now. Unless…this is exactly where he wants you.”
She sat back in her chair, uncrossed and crossed her legs. Folded her arms beneath her chest.
“Wouldn’t be the first time. Guy gets a girl to do his dirty work and then dumps her when the deed is done. Come on, Doctor, you’re a criminal psychologist. You know how it is. Believe me, I’ve seen my fair share as a defense attorney.” Babs had slipped the knife in, now it was time to twist. “Or…maybe he’s tired of you. Maybe your Mister J found himself another Harley. One that doesn’t whine so much. Maybe he’s with her…right…this…minute.”
It was Bab’s turn to lean in, her breathe hot on Harley’s face but still very much aware of how far the clown girl could lunge. “Maybe your Mister J is tired of blondes like you, Harley. Maybe he likes redhead’s now. Or maybe,” Babs teased her own short hair, “brunettes.”
She leaned back again. “Wouldn’t you like to find out? Prove me wrong. At least, prove to him that you’re not a self-pitying loser waiting to be rescued. That you can save yourself? My, wouldn’t he be impressed with that! But, make no mistake, Harley, I walk out those doors, I’m not coming back. This is your first, last and only chance.”


Babs was beginning to think she might be wrong about the arsons when a massive explosion rocked the warehouse across the street. The blast of superheated air nearly knocked her off her feet as the entire building erupted into flames. The ringing in her ears gradually dimmed, drowned out by the frantic chatter coming over the Bluetooth embedded in her cowl. The Bluetooth was linked to the smartphone attached to the back of her belt which was keyed to the police band. The emergency channels were lit up like Christmas, pure pandemonium. Not only about the explosion but apparently a jewelry store heist happening at the same time.

That’s no coincidence. From reports over the air, the heist occurred five or six blocks east/northeast in the heart of the Diamond District. The top of Barb’s building afforded her an unobstructed view of the entire area. Zeroing in on the police sirens and the sound of gunfire in the distance, she zoomed in with her night vision goggles. A crew of five masked men were quickly piling into the back of a white paneled van, shooting it out with a couple of GCPD units that had just arrived on scene. The goons finished loading up and the van rammed the squad cars, escaping in a crash of twisted metal and shattered glass.

Decision time, Babs. What are you goin’ to do? She turned back to the inferno in front of her. The raging conflagration showed no signs of abating, in fact if anything it appeared to be intensifying. The air was full of bright red cinders. Whipped by the wind, they swirled like angry fireflies, alighting on other nearby buildings, setting them ablaze. She did a quick scan of the boarded up rowhouses that dotted the block and by all appearances they appeared deserted. Thank god. And even now, the first fire engines had arrived.

So, the jewel thieves then? That was the logical move, her bike was parked behind the alley, she could intercept them in under three minutes. No, that’s exactly what he wants me to do. The arsonist. He planned this, I’m sure of it. The robbery was just a distraction. Quickly, she began searching the rooftops. There! There you are! Pushing the magnification to its max setting, she could make him out. Right in the middle of the burning blocks. Even this far away, she could tell he was well-build, all hard muscle. He wore tight battle fatigues, loaded for bear. He was carrying something, something on his back, but the angle prevented her from making it out.

Any doubts she might have had about her next course of action were instantly dispelled by the familiar, turbocharged roar of the Batmobile. He’s going after the robbers. She smirked. For once, she would get the jump on Mister ‘I-AM-THE-NIGHT’. She couldn’t wait to see the look on his face when she bagged the real prize. Serves him right for leaving me out in the dark. I’ll show him that I’m a better crimefighter than he ever was!


Without hesitation, without fear, she dove off the nine story building. Accelerating, the ground rushing up to meet her, she calmly lifted her grapnel and fired a high tensile cable. Her descent turned into an arc, swinging and lifting her to the next building. She was like a raven, a wraith, silent and black, as she flew from rooftop to rooftop. Until she landed softly on the gravel paving of the roof where her target awaited. He stood at the opposite end, seemingly unaware of her arrival. No doubt still fixated on the car chase on the streets below. Boys, always in love with their hot rods. She could now see that what he carried on his back was a large metal shield. Nice shield. Too bad you won’t be conscious to use it! Smirking, she began running, her footfalls barely touching the ground as she threw a batarang at the back of his head

You should probably make a roster to keep track of all the characters and make sure we're balanced out.
I believe that madness can find more madness, and that every ounce of madness has a spark of truth. And truth, as you know, has a way of depressing people who don't want to find it.

No one is 100% honest... We all keep 20% of the truth from the world, to protect ourselves & sometimes others.
