Haven't played a RPG since... the first time, some 4 or 5 years ago! Not sure how to do this online. Will be a lurker.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Name: Kassin

Alias/Nickname: None so far

Race: Draconic

Origins: Another plane of existence, from a planet where Kassin's people are the most developed life form, and just discovered inter-plane travel. Their appearance is what could be dubbed the love child of a dragon and a tiger. Their hide is hairless and scaleless, thick and smooth with patterns to help hide in the thick foliage they evolved in, as hunters in the top of the trees. Long thick tail, two wings with patterned, translucent skin, fixed on the shoulders and kept folded close to the body most of the time. His hands have elongated fingers with paw-like quality, retractable claws, an opposable thumb, and many knuckles offer great dexterity but the inside still has rough pads to grip branches and such. Kassin understand human language very well and speaks it if need be, his own language including too many high noises we cannot hear.

Age: 40+, a young man by his standards.

Profession: Scientist / Explorer. Came to the current plane as part of an experiment and wishes to suss things out before getting back home.

Alignment: Neutral Chaotic

Weapon of Choice / Accessories: His own fangs / sets of crystals with different, crazy uses.

Allegiance: To his own plane and race

Secret Agency: N/A

Arch-Nemesis: None so far

Quirks: Can shrink or multiply his size / break glass by shrieking at it / takes notes on a crystal internal drive jabbed in his skin, by talking to himself – making him look deranged and all the more dangerous for it.

Well that's pretty damned awesome, @Nora. Make that up just now or borrow it from your other writing?

Well thanks!
No it's a character I wrote about some two days ago as I distracted myself from writer's block by writing a different story. It's almost an exercise of style, as I try to innocently make it sound like Kassin (the 3rd pov) is a human following and investigating a little crew of extra terrestrial with rough technology, maybe even taming them, he describes them, but only about 800 words in do you realise these aliens are stranded humans, and Kassin is a monstrously scary looking creature.

Though I know what philosophical concepts I want to work on in this story, I have no plot outlined at all, it's in a cupboard, so might as well play out this character here.

Nickname: Oggy, Ogs,

I have never played a RPG on a forum, so this is kind of strange, but in a good way. ;D

Name:
Arthur Reuel Cane

Spoiler for Hiden:
Alias/Nickname: AR or A.R.

Looks: Quite tall, lean but not bony, dressed in colour-changing and mood-indicating hooded monk robes (covering his body pretty much completely), yellowish green eyes, hairless, skin covered (from the neck down) with tattooed text of a strange language

Age: Can't remember. Looks young but "feels" old

Race: Human

Profession: Former priest (and even more former pirate and friend of the Cap???)

Weapon of Choice / Accessories: Fists, and metal walking cane (with which he can fly short distances)

Allegiance: Fantasia. His own God, Velma the Virgin Velociraptor

Arch-Nemesis: His past?

Quirks: Uses his walking cane although he can walk perfectly fine without it. Is (or at least tries to be) very calm. Is very sombre. Has "a beast" inside?

Now I just hope that @Nighteyes doesn't shape-shift my character. At least not without consulting me first.  :D


Edit: Edited my character a little with things that have been revealed in the story so far.

Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Entrance and exit executed.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Name:  Elena

Looks:  Punk rocker girl, one side of her head with chin-length black hair, the other side buzz cut.  Fish net leggings and high black boots.  Has a full arm tattoo of flames, a nose ring, and several earrings, and has hearing aids because of her exceptionally bad hearing.  Travels with a Jigglypuff.

Race:  human

Profession:  Rocker minstrel by day, thief by non-days and dark indoor places.

Weapon of Choice:  A stamp with permanent red ink that says "IDIOT" that she uses to stamp people's foreheads with in order to ruin their sense of attractiveness and humiliate them for all time.  When she's actually fighting, a series of throwing knifes and a rapier, but she usually forgets to bring them with her.

Allegiance:  None.  Whether or not you can persuade her to join a side has yet to be decided...if you can catch her, that is.

I can't think of anything else.
