The City of Westcliffe

Post by HowlingWolf on Sun May 10, 2015 7:27 pm

The City of Westcliffe. If anyone were to hear the name, they would immediately think of the bustling streets, the tall skyscrapers, and the almost unusually friendly people. Hardly a fight went on in the city, despite the fact that it was one of the largest cities in the United States. the people always got along. They chatted with one another and never tried to con someone into taking a piece of junk for a fine object. If someone was hurt, you could guarantee that there would be a crowd of people wanting to help.

But there is more to the city that meets the eye. Things are changing and even people who once trusted each other enough to leave their front doors unlocked as they went out on errands used double, even triple locks on their doors and cast a wary eye from side to side whenever they leave the safety of their homes.

The city government, run by supernaturals, know exactly what is going on, what is hidden inside the dark alleyways and behind corners. Ever since the city was created, the supernaturals have been controlling the city, keeping the peace between oblivious humans and the non-humans who sought shelter and safety from the outside world.

However, as the city grew, more and more supernaturals of all races began flocking towards it, steadily filling the city with their numbers until their numbers were far greater than that of the humans.

Now, with the swelling numbers of the supernaturals, it is all the government can do to keep the humans from finding out about them and also managing to maintain as much peace as they possibly can between the different races. Some races have joined together and united their strength to form what the humans know of as gangs.

No one feels safe anymore. The humans rely on the government to protect them. But we know who is really running things.

Rules:

1. No godmodding or powerplaying
2. There will be actual romance in this, between all genders. There wont be anything hardcore or something, but know that there will be kissing, flirting, etc.
3. Proper grammar and spelling. I get tired of saying it, but its necessary. If characters have an accent, different variations of spelling are fine.
4. Any character can be used, but dont make them something like immune to every power or something like that
5. You dont have to have all your characters in a gang. Your character can be a rogue. However, I dont want everyones characters to all be rogues.
6. There will more than likely be slight cursing in this roleplay.
7. Try to have diverse characters. We dont want everyone being girls with stubborn personalities who are attracted to a knight in shining armor.
8. Im not even going to bother with a required active schedule, but please try to post at least semi-regularly. This roleplay will end.
9. I dont really know anyone anymore that does one liners, but post a decent amount (probably around 4-5 sentences at the least)
10. If you have any questions, just shoot me a dmail
11. Im not going to limit you on how many characters you can have, but keep it manageable

Name: Damon
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Species: Enhanced Mutant
Abilities: Incredibly flexible and enhanced agility as well as incredible stamina
Gang: Rogue (travels with Jack)
Appearance: http://dreamself.me/d/jU9m
Personality: Shy and withdrawn, Damon is very soft spoken unless it comes to someone he loves and cares about. When he needs to be, he can be very brave. He would die to protect Jack. He also tends to blush a lot when him and Jack show affection for one another. He's also really kawaii and I just want to hug him until I die like the kitties in the picture.
Brief History: Damon didn't always have his powers. He was born a normal human, in appearance as well. However, once he was around eight years old, a meltdown at the local power plant caused a minor radiation explosion, which he and his family were exposed to. At first, nothing noticeable happened until his parents both fell ill at the same time and his hair and eyes started to change color gradually, everyday more red and gold showing through the dark brown and moss green. On the same day that his hair and eye color became completely changed, his parents died, their sickness having grown everyday just like the colors in his features. He was left alone. Not knowing what to do, he fled, discovering his powers in the process. Only a year or so later, he met Jack.
Other: He carries a knife to use against any gang members that might attack him and Jack. The kitties in the picture literally do nothing but show that he is a kawaii little shit.

Name: Jack
Age:17
Gender: Male
Species: Magical Being
Abilities: Can create mental illusions
Gang: Rogue (travels with Damon)
Appearance: http://dreamself.me/d/jVaW
Personality: The speaker for him and Damon if they ever come up against gang members not strictly attack-on-sight, he is also very protective of Damon and would die to save him. Rest RPO.
Brief History: Jack had always known he had because of the fact that his mom possessed the same abilities that he does. From a very young age his mother began teaching him how to better control his powers until one day she just vanished. Using his abilities, Jack survived on his own for a couple years, dodging out of the way of any gangs that he passed or dangerous situation all the while struggling to develop his weak powers to a more effective level. Unfortunately, his emotions affected his powers to the point that they refused to advance any further, leaving him with only the ability to make the air around him with the beginning of an illusion. One day when he heard someone running towards him, he tackled them without thinking, finding himself staring at a boy that wasnt any older than himself. Seeing him lost, alone, and practically defenseless like he was, he agreed to travel with him. Theyve been together ever since.
Other: Same as Damon, although he usually attacks the gang members with his illusions and make them feel pain.

Name: Alex
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Species: Shapeshifter
Abilities: She can shift into an eagle along with having talons, sharp teeth, and bird senses in her half form
Gang: Cheshire
Appearance:
Half-form - http://dreamself.me/d/jVrp
58, her fingernails are curved into points like an eagles talons and her teeth are also sharp as well.
Eagle form - Slightly larger than normal eagle whose coloring is black.
Personality: fiery, doesnt-take-no-for-an-answer type attitude, stubborn, meh, Im drawing a blank
Brief History: N/A
Other: Dating Mica, which the government and other supernaturals arent too happy about. In a broship (sibling-like relationship) with Spencer. Often the one to hold Tex down when the girls are putting him in dresses.

Name: Jezzie
Age: 19 but looks younger
Gender: Transgender Male
Species: Elf
Abilities: Able to change his basic appearance as well as use other forms of magic
Gang: The Darklings
Appearance:
Male (High Elf form)- http://dreamself.me/d/jVzn
(Most common appearance)
Female (Dark Elf form very very rarely seen)- Long dark hair that goes to the small of his back in a soft wave and almost unearthly pale skin. His eyes are a deep violet in color and black tattoo-like marks decorate his skin on her arms, legs, and stomach.
Approximate - http://dreamself.me/d/jVzS
4'9 and generally keeps his ears under his hair.
Personality: Secluded from the others in his gang, Jezzie is a mystery to others. Even while talking to him, he is quiet and reserved somewhat. If anyone asks him about why he doesnt take off his shirt with the other guys or something of the like, he explains that it is part of his elven traditions that he is forbidden to.
Brief History: He was born a female but once he decided to go to Westcliffe to live, he used magic to make himself look like a boy.
Other: Always wears his clothes in case he loses his concentration accidentally and his appearance shifts back to his natural female one.

Name: White Assassin
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Species: Magical Being
Abilities: Shadow manipulation and enhanced fighting abilities
Gang: Darklings
Appearance:

Personality: Quiet, secluded, cold, unforgiving, will kill mercilessly if need be
Brief History: She was born a magical being by chance. Her parents knew she was different as soon as she opened her eyes and bright, unnatural gold shone out and her hair grew in white. Fast forward a year and thats when her first signs of magical activity began. Whenever she slept, if anyone other than her parents came near her, shadows would lash out and attack them, preventing them from coming any closer to her, as if her mind thought she was in danger. This went on for a long time until she was old enough to begin speaking. Thats when she started gaining more control over her powers and she was able to stop them from lashing out to anyone. As she grew, others teased her for her appearance at school to the point that she broke down crying every night when she was at home. She was made an outcast. Outbursts directed at her parents became more and more frequent until they were nearly nightly and when she got angry, her powers took control. One night, she decided that she had had enough and ran away.
Other: She has a sword with a gold hilt and a silver blade that she keeps strapped to her hip.
