The Essence of Souls [Open, PM me for bio submission]

Recommended Posts

Blewcheese    886

In every soul there lives a flame,
Not two are quite alike.
But if the flame is to be put out;
A world of pain and strife.

Welcome, one and all, to my new roleplay! First, some ground rules.

  • No Godmodding/Overpoweredness (If you're not sure about something, then ask or PM me)
  • All non-RP text should be in parenthesis or under OOC.
  • If you're going to swear, censor it.
  • Don't be a jerk in OOC

Here's the format for character bio:

Name:
Age:
Abilities:
Appearance:
Backstory:
Side notes/etc:

You don't have to fill in all of the catagories. For example, you can leave out age. Or name, if that's what you want.

Note: This RP takes place in the realm of Don't Starve. You may have a character who originated in that realm, but if you don't then I would like an explanation on how he arrived in the DS realm. Unless, of course, you feel it is better kept as a secret.

I will be accepting people, we will start at 3-4. I will give my bio once we have 2-3 people.

---Members---

@Blewcheese - Barry

Name: Barry

Age: 14

Abilities: Barry is a bard. He carries a small guitar, and with it he can play very powerful tunes. He can direct his abilities to whomever he likes, but he cannot use them on himself.
  • Enpowering note: Barry plays a powerful scale, giving the subjects strength for a short time.
  • Protecting song: As long as the song is playing, the subjects will not take much damage, and their bones and skin will harden to protect them.
  • Burning chord: The subjects will suffer some pain and headaches.
  • Healing melody: while the melody is being played, all subjects' wounds will slowly heal.

All of Barry's abilities can be very easily interrupted, and Barry cannot move when performing one of his abilities, thus unable to dodge or avoid any incoming attacks while performing.

Appearance: Barry's guitar is a faded yellow, the strings are a shining silver. He is fairly short and very underfed and thin. he wears a tattered black tee shirt and torn jeans. He has brown eyes and short black hair.

Backstory: Barry had always loved music. It had never been a secret. His loving parents gave him an instrument, which he played to perfection within moments. Anyone who heard his tune was calmed, and settled. However, one day, a mysterious man approached Barry when he was seven, asking him the secret of his music. When Barry didn't know how to explain his talent, the man murdered Barry's parents in an effort to get Barry to speak. When Barry still couldn't explain it, he was imprisoned by the man. Seven years into imprisonment later, Maxwell appeared to him with promises of escape. Barry accepted without a second thought, and was gripped by dark hands, dragged into a mysterious world...



@MenaAthena - Oxryklne / Clara

Oxryklne

Race: Shadow Beetle

Biography: The product of a failed expirement to create a small creature that could scout out new resources, Oxryklne is the first and last shadow beetle. After his creator died, he wandered off into the wilderness, living off of small carrion and the like. Due to his small size, he is mostly ignored by the Island's inhabitants untill it is too late.

Abilities: Oxryklne can manipulate shadows to some degree, and can also use small wings to fly short distances. His strong shell makes him resilient for a beetle, but still can be injured very easily. He speaks through telekinesis.

Appearance: Has a black, slimy-looking shell with red eyes. Skin is dark purple and partially transparent. About the size of a bottlecap.
 
-------------
 
Name: Clara 
Age: 17 
Race: Human female 
Abilities: Can turn her body to marble. When like this she has full mobility, hits harder, is harder to injure, and is resistant to extreme temperatures. Currently doesn't need food. 
Disabilities: Injuries sustained while marble transfer to her normal human body (Example: Her hand gets broken off as marble, she still has no hand when normal ). She cannot heal while marble, and cannot stay rock forever, as it takes concentration and energy to sustain the form. In her current condition , she has a few cracks in various places and a large crack running all the way though her chest, which would be fatal if she was flesh. Thus she is stuck in the form. It's only a matter of time before she dies.
Backstory: She was born with the ability to turn to marble when in danger. Over time she learned how to control it, which wasn't very long, as you have to learn fast when surviving the apocalypse. Her mom died when she was very young. She was constantly moving from place to place with her father, until they met a young orphan boy, who she treated like her little brother. Since the boy was quite young, her father decided to pick a place to settle down for a while. That would be his last mistake.

Her father and adopted little brother now dead and fatally injured, most people would be morning they loss, but if there was one thing she learned in her life it's that if you show weakness, you die, even with a tragedy like this.
 
@DaverGamer - Daniel - DEAD

@Ellebelly24 - Lily - MIA

Name: Lily
Age: 14
Abilities: she has a Pokemon with her. It's a Wartortle.
Appearance: sandy blonde pigtails with Red's hat on. She wears a shirt just like Red's, but a jean skirt, and red convers.
Backstory: wandering through the Pokemon tower in Lavender Town, she noticed there was a ghost leading her to the top of the tower. As she got to the top, she realized the Pokemon was a Haunter, and it's owner sat at the top. She decided to challenge the mysterious man, but when she asked for his name, he smiled crookedly, and said, "Maxwell". She battled well, but lost. She fainted, holding onto one pokeball, her Wartortle. Two shadow hands grabbed her and dragged her into a new realm. In the Pokemon regions, the story is said to be a myth, and neither of the trainers have been seen for 50 years. But Maxwell has been holding onto Lily for a few dozen years now, preserving her like artist preserve paintings.
Side notes/etc: she is determined, silly, lightheaded, cheerful, and vengeful.

Backstory: ???
Side notes/etc: The doll, whence burned, will banish the being to where it came
 
--------------
 
Name: Selestewa Foor, Stealer of Woes
 
Age: 15
 
Gender: Female
 
Race: Human
 
Advantages
 
Holding Others Pangs
Being the person that she is, coupled with her ability, means that she is willing to hold the burdens and pains of other people. To put it more specifically, she can essentially absorb, in a sense, the pain of others, meaning that she can hold onto the wounds and poisons that other people are unfortunate to have, and "borrow", holding the setbacks for people; this process requires a calm atmosphere and focus, along with Selestewa and the victim holding hands. An example of this is if a person is badly burned or scarred on their leg. An extreme example of this is reviving someone from death, though this isn't something one would like to do. See 'Bearing The Pain'.
 
Sharing is Painful
When she holds the wounds of other people, she can essentially transfer the pain into other creatures, transferring the scars and wounds onto the creature, as long as she has both of her palms on the creature.
 
Setbacks
 
Bearing The Pain
By holding the wounds and pain that others endured, she has to suffer by living through the pain as the wounds are applied to herself, which can be fatal in the case of excessive wounds.
 
Weight Of Sin
The transference of wounds takes a heavy deal of purity on her part, and the resulting residue that is the byproduct of performing her "borrowing" is a sort of corruption, a dust that cripples and eats away at morality. Usually, this residue is deposited on Selestewa's hands, neck, and ankles in rings, but sometimes the victim also come away in possession of it.
 
Backstory: (I wish to reveal through interaction, as I usually do, but I will say that she was a maid in her former life.)
 
Appearance: (Let's try something new this time. Description when you guys intercept her.)
 
Personality: She's a cheerful, optimistic person, a loveable companion that is pure at heart. Of course, when she becomes corrupted, her personality can undergo changes; she becomes more edgy and odd, and she will sometimes shout out snippets of conversation that long ended.
 
Inventory
  • Handkerchief (Silk, Ace of Spades Motif)
  • Orbicular Stone (Granite)

Side Notes: She is fond of animals and typically heal their wounds whenever she can.



@RainyDoodles - Telumi - MIA
Name: Telumi
Age: ?
Abilities:
- Sticks and Stones...: Telumi is skilled in controlling and manipulating trees. Her strongest ability is temporarily stalling an angry tree guard. The drawback of this is it weakens her, making her susceptible to dizziness and lack of concentration.

- Big Stick Hurt Bad: the ability to summon a staff made of whitened wood, carvings of leaves across it. It is, essentially, a part of her - tough to break but if damaged will hurt her badly.

- Say Hello to My Little Friend: An ultimate move, Telumi can summon forth a tree guard to fight under her command. She has to have her staff with her and once the summoning is complete, she'll pass out, making her useless against any attack. The tree guard won't protect her but will destroy enemies, if given the chance, then it will plant itself and become a tree. The longer the fight, the worse state Telumi will be in. Once the tree guard is planted she will awaken again.

- Photosynthesis!: Telumi's healing move, a meditation and some sunlight will heal minor cuts. If she's unconscious and badly wounded, it can keep her alive until someone tends to her - so long as she's in the sun.

Appearance: Tall, with pale blue skin and eyes a pure white. Her dress is minty blue, trimmed with gold lace and royal blue silken leaves cascading down the skirt. A violet cloak, hooded, covers white wavy hair. This cloak is trimmed with silver foliage embroidered onto the bottom.

Backstory: Not much is known about Telumi, aside from her role as Grove Keeper. Like most Dryads, she's usually quiet and thoughtful, but has been known to leave the grove for long periods of time. She actually hides an interest in the other beings of the islands from other Dryads.

Side notes/etc: physically, she's quite weak, prone to passing out and exhaustion after long travels. It's possible that the run-down house the group are staying in is hers. She's got barriers against telepathy and mind control due to her connection with the land and her position as grove keeper.

Thanks :grin:

 

I think it's fine, and I probably should have mentioned this in the OP, but this RP takes place in the world of DS. Was Oxryklne created in that realm, or was he transported there? If it's the latter, then I would like an explanation on how he got there. Unless it's supposed to be a secrety secret of secrets.

(Meep. Sorry. In a LoL game with my friends. heh... Here, I'll start.)

 

Barry woke with a gasp, clenching his guitar.

"Gah! No more! Please!"

He looks around the where he woke up, in a dense forest by a couple of trees. He strums his instrument once, then takes some deep breaths.

Oxryklne looked up from his rabbit.  He heard talking nearby.  Humans, perhaps?  It was worth investigating.  Crawling out of the animal's chest cavity, he flew off, landing in the grass near the noisemaker.  It was a human, all right - he recognized the shape from the one who had created him.  He crawled under the cover of the grass towards the man.

Barry plays a short tune to calm his nerves, walking forward. He almost misses a clump of blond hair nearby. He hides behind a tree, and he stops playing. He hopes the man didn't hear the music...

The human suddenly bolts, and Oxryklne freezes.  Had he been seen?  No, no, of course not - if he had been, the human probably wouldn't have cared or would have tried to stomp on him.  He scuttles towards the human again, confident that he could get his attention.

Barry sees the beetle scuttle towards him. He puts a finger to his lips to shush the beetle.

"Quiet, mister beetle. There's a strange man over there."

He bends down and smiles at the beetle.

Oxryklne panicks.  This wasn't what he had wanted at all, and now the man was bending down towards him.  He flies up into the tree, and watches from above.

Oxryklne leans in closer to watch.  But, he is still covered in rabbit blood - slippery rabbit blood.  He falls straight out of the tree and directly onto Daniel's face.

"Work together...?"

Barry thinks for a moment, when the beetle falls on Daniel's face.

"Bad beetle! Don't do that!"

Targeting the beetle, he strums a burning chord, trying to get it off his potential friend's face.
