PostSubject: Blood and Feathers {ooc}   Thu Apr 01, 2010 7:22 pm



Once upon a time, there lived the humans, and the angels that helped them. Angels were more of a story or myth to the humans, for although they aided them on an almost daily basis, no human ever saw one. The angels were a slightly more advanced and civilized race, but they were peaceful and kind. They were especially kind to the humans, thinking that the race had much to offer despite their silly inability to fly.

And so everything was as it was meant to be

For a time at least

Once upon a day, there was a man, a good and hardworking man, with morals. He was walking along a garden path, on his way to town, when he spotted a bush of roses. They were average roses, all of them red, except for one. Towards the bottom he picked a flower that was very odd indeed, this flower was blue. It looked like a rose, but that was impossible, how could it be a rose? Roses weren’t blue, yellow or white maybe, but never blue. The man kept this rose and went into town, going about his business and eventually returning home to his wife.

The next morning he found the rose missing, he franticly searched for it, suddenly feeling the absolute need to hold it. His wife came in the bedroom; the rose was in her hair. She smiled at him and wished him a good morning. The man snarled and ripped the flower from her hair, not caring about the woman who dared take his rose. The man had become entrapped in its power, and the rose was by all means powerful. He wanted no one to be able to take the pretty rose from him. The rose granted him the power he wished to posses, but it had a price. The rose always has a price….

The man now self proclaimed as Lord, had power that humans had never seen the likes of before, he could lift a horse with his finger and cross a room in less time than it takes one to blink. Even his looks and senses changed, he was all but beautiful to everyone’s eye, and he could hear and see farther than anyone. The price he paid was not one he regretted in the least, he needed blood to sustain himself, and he took it without mercy, making others just like him as he took every drop they had. The rose was capable of far more than change, it was also able to destroy, and he used that ability to concur land. The Angel King, Samuel, would not interfere; it was not in the angel’s nature to be violent or to interfere in human affairs.

His inaction cost him greatly. Eventually the human race was gone, and replacing it was a race that called themselves demons. These demons eventually stumbled on angel territory, and attacked, wanting the lush land and gardens of the angels. King Samuel gathered his forces to fight, even if Angel’s were not a violent bunch, they still practiced combat for exercise and contest purposes. When rallied, they made quite the force to be reckoned with, but so were the demons. Both sides lost many, the ground was muddy with blood, blood that the demons now fed on.

King Samuel devised a plan, he sent his four sons to get the blue rose, seeing as how the rose was the main source of the demon’s power. Only one son made it back, the eldest. Their mission was a bitter success, and the Vampire Lord called for a treaty.

The treaty was to be sealed with the marriage of the children of both Lord Lucian and King Samuel. All hell may break loose.

Casualties of War-
1.5 Million angels- deceased

1.3 Million vampires-deceased

Prince Gabriel-deceased-angel
He was the youngest of the angel brothers, and the most heartfelt. He survived the war and went with his older brothers to the blue rose mission without express permission. He died jumping in front of a barrage of arrows that would have hit his eldest brother.

Princes Yarrow and Caritas-deceased-angels
2 of the angel brothers died on the mission to take back the blue rose.
Yarrow was the oldest of the two twins, but by no means the leader of the two. He always stuck to Caritas and made sure that he didn't get them both into trouble, seeing as how Caritas seemed absolutely determined to outdo anyone in mischeif. Yarrow was sensible and cool headed, where as Caritas was impulsive and hotheaded. Yarrow preffered reading and intellect, Caritas preffered playing and swordsmanship. No matter the differences between the two, they always stuck together through thick and thin, these two were quite the comedic and deadly duo. Thier powers were interconnected, as twin's powers often are. Yarrow had the ability of speed akin to that of a demon's speed, and Caritas had the strength akin to that of a demon's strength. When they were in a proximity of ten feet to eachother, thier powers were combined, so each had both speed and strength, but, since they shared strength, they also shared weakness. If one was hurt in battle, so was the other, it was involuntary, and the main reason that they both died. These two princes will forevermore be remembered in the hearts of thier family and people.

Prince Grogan-deceased-demon
Here was a man's man, Grogan loved battle, and was born for it. The woman that gave birth to him was a rich aristocratic woman by the name of Hera, she spoiled him silly and made sure he grew up to be strong. He spent his younger days teasing his little sisters and messing around. Not much in the way of intellect, he never achieved much of a rank in officership, preffering to take small fractions of soldiers and causing havoc. His tactics were guerilla style, and his mission simple, kill the enimy. Grogan was loyal and a good comrad, but feared when in battle. He was having a meeting with his father when the battle at the castle broke out, he killed many angels, but was in turn slain by a surprising opponent. There is doubt that his father has even noticed that Grogan is gone, to preoccupied with the loss of his Blue Rose.

Prince Dmitri-deaceased-demon
Dmitri was the eldest of Lucian's sons, and possibly the proudest. Dmitri had an unusually high intelligence, and a knack for the sword, he grew up to be a General in his father's army. His leadership caused many angel deaths, and his arrogance caused his own. Dmitri was assasinated by an elaborate plan set by the angel group known as the 'Winged Demons'. His father really felt the loss of his best General.

Princess Bellamina-deceased-demon
Bellamina was a daddy's girl and was always trying to please him in any way, he doted on her like he doted on his other daughters. She never got along with her sister, wanting to be the only daughter in her father's eye. When the war started she was not aloud to fight, and so turned her attentions to dancing and flirting instead. Bellamina loved nothing more than to reel a man in, and then crush him under her stilleto heels, it gave her pleasure. Her figure gave her quite a pack of admirers, so she was never short of anyone to torture. Her other interests included poisens, she was quite knowledgable about them, and was always trying them out on her tutors and nannies if they ever made her upset. Bella was killed by a band of elite, now rogue angels, they call themselves 'Winged Demons', she was their target, to send a message to Lucian, he grew furious and ordered them to be hunted down, but never suceeded in catching any of them.



Angel Race
Angels have a few tricks up their sleeves, they are endowed with a gift. This gift is a power, your character (providing you have an angel character)may have 1 powerful gift, and 1 smaller gift. I assume you are responsible enough to judge the capacity of this gift and I aslo assume you won't god mode with it.
Ex; The power to manipulate shattering sound waves, and the power to calm someone by singing.
Something cheesy like that is just a suggestion, it can be anything you like. I love cheesy though.....Anywho, I'll tell you when you submit your character whether or not your powers are acceptable.
Their wings can come in many colors, sometimes multicolor, and they can fly at amazing speeds. Their wings are powerful, but their enimies, demons, often attacked their wings. It is both a blessing, and a week point, it makes them a bigger target.
The culture of the angel race revolves around bright and light colors, extensive art and architecture. They are polite and formal.

Demon Race
They are strong enough to lift a horse with mild trouble, and fast enough to cross the room in a blink of an eye. Demons often take full advantage of their speed, never bothering to walk much. Their reflexes tend to be very sharp.
Only Lord Lucian can see and hear for a mile around, but the rest don't really need that when they can smell from 4 miles away. They need to feed on blood once every two days at the least (2 pints, and yes, they have a hard time resisting blood, they can, but it is slightly unpleasant), and King Samuel has arranged for blood packets for the guests. The blood is taken from various animals. The demons are allowed to drink blood from their significant other after the marriage. It was part of the treaty that was unavoidable. As for durability, they have flesh that is cuttable by sharp things (Normal durability). They have canines that are slightly sharper and longer than you would see on an angel, specifically to easily drink fresh blood from a vein.
Their culture is more about cut-throat politics. They enjoy giving formal balls, and are just as formal as angels, they just tend to be considerably less kind. Young demons tend to be premiscuous.
Their architecture is a more of a gothic chic style. They enjoy deep, passionate, darker colors than the angels.

Oh, and when they party, they PARTY.

Each royal has a different mother, Lord Lucian is quite cruel to his wives....

Setting
Just in case you haven't been able to tell by now, this is a mediviel typish rp, no technology and stuff ok?

In the beginning of the rp, the demons will have a short meeting with the angels in the angel castle, where the weddings will be held, all on the same day. The day they arrive.

Afterwards, the couples are supposed to split to the agreed living space. But the bickering and fighting between the two changes King Samuel's mind, and with a quick meeting with Lucian. It is decided that all of them will stay in the castle until they can behave in a civil manner condusive to royalty.

Pic- (anime)
name-
role- (as in demon prince eldest etc.)
bio- you can make this however long
personality-( don't sweat this part too much)
powers- [only if you are an angel]
weapons-[please keep in mind that angel females don't fight, and very few demon women fight]

Characters available
Before the roleplay satarts I will pm you a secret that your character has. I have a major plot device already rearing to go, so don't worry about how interesting this may turn out to be, I'll make SURE this stays fun.

They are in order of age. Think on them, be creative, make them into something that will be delightful. Pick good pictures! I have a ton of them myself so if you have trouble finding a good picture just let me know, I'll rally a few and send them your way, I'll even search for something specific for you. Oh yes and one more thing, the angel males are by no means wimpy or girlish. They in fact tend to have darker wings and make vicious warriors.

Don't worry about it, lots of people seem to get a little confused by the roleplay categories. c:

They aren't really organized by "skill level" per say, and tend to refer to length of posts. Beginner-level role-plays have a one paragraph minimum, Intermediate (where most of us hang out) is a minimum of three paragraphs per post, and Advanced is six. Paragraphs are usually five sentences each, but that seems to be almost ignored in the Beginner level, and after that we don't really mind if a sentence gets nicked here or there. It all depends on preferences when it comes to where you put it. I, for one, usually hang out in Intermediate not because I'm not an advanced roleplayer, but because I can't stretch anything into more than three paragraphs without having more characters or something big happening that I can write a lot about. Sometimes I fall back to Beginner roleplays for casual stuff. Just preferences, really~

If you wanna get the post moved, shoot a PM to Frozen Memory and ask him to move it. He tends to be on in the evenings as of late, so he should get to it pretty quickly.

Hmm. This does sound quite interesting. I couldn't help but read it before I moved it XD. I am deciding whether to be a demon or an angel. I'll probably decide tomorrow. ^^ Never mind. I want to be evil for a role-play. I'll take the.... youngest demon. Save it for me! I'll make the character tomorrow.

Pic-
name- Darius
role- demon prince youngest
bio- Darius wasn't the favorite in the family. He had grown up knowing that his elder brothers were more prized then himself so he didn't much mind it. Most of the attention wasn't reverted to him, so he had the opportunity to do as he pleased as long as he didn't do anything that would bring out his father's furry. On occasions, he was forced into political meetings and often dazed out from boredom. Politics weren't his delight. He'd rather be on the battlefield where every step had to be judged. Though he was by no means a general or even a captain, he'd follow his own code and often, he ignored his brothers. So far, his own instincts and battle wise ideas have left him alive.

During the war with the angels, Darius nearly met his death as did his late brothers. In the midst of the battle, he was ambushed by a group of angels and barely made it out alive. He still harbors the scar across his face and back from the angels' swords. His father hadn't seemed to care about his injured son. He was nursed back to health, but his distaste for his father only grows stronger.

personality- Darius tends to be the quieter of his brothers but by no means is he without a fiery tongue. He isn't afraid to speak his mind when it comes down to it, nor is he coward. He'd rather appear to be the weaker brother than the one too obnoxious and involved with everything. He figures that if he isn't involved in too much political arguments, the better chance he has of living. He is stubborn in his convictions and won't easily back down from a fight unless he knows there is no chance of winning. Better to be alive then a man who can't judge a fight. He doesn't hesitate to use any of his skills to win what he desires.
powers- none
weapons- Being a warrior, Darius carries around a few weapons with him. He generally keeps a long sword on his back and two half swords on his hip. He has a few daggers hidden on his person and only uses them in dire need. (Sorry not much description XD. I don't do so well with describing weapons.

I'm very interested in the role as the second eldest angel princess, so please save it for me. I'll have the character up either later today or tomorrow.

EDIT: I had it up later today.


Pic-

name- Arel

role- Angel princess, second eldest

bio- From she was very young, Arel was told that she could not engage in any fights whatsoever, and growing up with that in mind, she did her very best to avoid confrontations and arguments. She never mentioned this to anyone since she didn't think that this was anybody's business.

When the war came, she knew that she couldn't participate in any of the fights one the battlefield, and so she remained in hiding for a while, but it didn't take her long to decide that it bored her too much.

If she couldn't fight with swords and magic, she would enter politics instead, and doing so, she actually found that she fitted well in such a role, debating and discussing, so naturally, that was where she stayed.

personality- Arel has, for as long as anyone can remember, always been a very serious type of person. She was never much for joking around, just as she disliked most forms of games, and adding to that, she was unable to show any kind of empathy towards others. However, she was in no way unfriendly, nor was she difficult to talk to, there was just a lot she couldn't, or wouldn't, talk about.

There was no specific reason for this, that was just how she happened to be.
In time she managed to get a little more understanding and empathy for others, and after the events of the war she had somehow developed a personality that was sometimes cold, and almost cruel, but only when she was displeased, and if she was happy, she would act kind, yet still reserved and highly articulate, and she would, to the best of her ability always keep her good manners, so to be sure not to offend anyone or be a nuisance.

powers- Arel has one power, and that is the power of her own heartbeat. This means that if she is attacked she can create a shield, one that cannot be seen, around herself. This shield does not last forever though, it only lasts for a heartbeat. She can however create several right after each other, but rarely more than five.

weapons- Well, she doesn't fight, so that would be rather silly to have.
