@the_immortal:

The Third one works for me. Though Cadmus doesn't kill innocents, he's not a villain. But what if he kills someone Lucias perceives as innocent? Cadmus also has a personal vendetta against a group called the Iron Claw because they murdered his mother, in his history, Cadmus let one of the men go because he was against killing, but then this man went and killed his mom. Cadmus never managed to get him back for that, what if Cadmus kills the man and Lucias was protecting him, or Lucias witnessed it and believed it to be unjust?

@cadmus_liafador:

He studies his targets pretty thoroughly to ensure he doesn't accidentally kill someone who was just in their actions (afterall he kills a lot of people that the law considers innocent, though he does admittedly expect people to hunt him for it in turn).

One kill definitely wouldn't do it unless he was certain the kill was unjust and it takes a lot to prove it to him. So we should probably work out a good enough reason to make Lucias assume the attack is unjust, and maybe have it be a "In the moment" defense for the man Cadmus is after rather then a hunt, he probably wouldn't immediately try and kill Cadmus, but he'd definitely use a very aggressive style to prevent the mans death without knowing the reason why Cadmus was after them?

@the_immortal:

Well as I said, there were multiple accomplices involved in his mothers murder, what if Cadmus is going on a slaughter spree of a bunch of seemingly innocent men and leaving a blood trail that Lucias picks up, and after studying the victims he decides to hunt Cadmus, I'd be willing to lower his defenses a little.

While your idea works also, I don't really mind which route we go to be honest.

*LOL* No not Jack lmao. He'd probably kick my a$$ for doing something like that XD

Plus it'd be way to chaotic, I was thinking a different character, I can send you a list of them if you'd like? I have no idea who's alt you are so I dunno if you know my whole roster.

@cadmus_liafador:

Well mostly I just need to ensure Lucias's investigation of his targets is solid. Basically, is there a way someone like batman, Rorsach, or Clue would figure out if they were guilty or innocent based upon the evidence so far? If not, then we're all set. If there is some that they may have been guilty though we'll have to work it out a bit better. I want to make it work but at the same time, I don't want to sacrifice how dedicated Lucias is to ensuring he gets the right people down.

No there wouldn't be, mostly because of their part of the Iron Claw and their's virtually no evidence to incriminate them of being in any criminal activities. No one but the Claw themselves and Cadmus know anything about their existence.

Alrighty, then we can totally work with this I think. I think you'd probably need to be the one to start that, so I can go off of it with what information that he would be able to learn and such. Otherwise it might be too vague. That, and figure out how Lucias would actually hunt him down. He's really patient so if it takes a few months he really wouldn't tell the difference.

Most anything should work, Gothic is definitely an easy explanation because I imagine there's plenty of people he'd be after there.

@luke_jackson:

Maybe?

If your dude is known as being evil (and has most certainly killed people) Lucias might hunt him. Though, he may not be so certain he can catch him due to the sheer speed difference between them. But at least he'd try. He can pose a threat if hot enough temperatures can, but he doesn't like doing that. And the fact Luke can apparently move at mach 100 does kind of put a damper on any expectation to actually chase him down.

Salvio (amicus_pacis character) might interact with him. Since he's sort of a speedster. Mostly just a kid who likes helping people, doesn't even consider himself a superhero. His body is already a bit superhuman, and he has a fairly high durability and specific type of high healing factor, and he can phase through anything which allows him to reach pretty much any speed at the loss of inertia and ability to effect others while phasing. He can technically reach equal speed to time, but when he does that he can't sense or think properly, so it's only useful for moving around and not actually doing anything. In order to do any serious damage he basically just goes at really high speed while phasing, then stops phasing and basically becomes a hypersonic projectile who relies on his durability/healing to survive. Very joking kid, lighthearted. Really doesn't want to hurt anyone he just wants to help when he can.

Currently my other two characters aren't much in use. I may work on them more, but right now they don't have much to go with.

Whatever suits you best. I can role with pretty much anyone. I mean especially since Luke can't kill Lucias and he wouldn't hurt Amicus, and neither of them could really harm Luke. So either one of them works.

Hm, guess it depends on how we play it out. Salvio will only get involved if he sees an active situation, like a legitimate reason to attack or intervene with something that Luke is doing (he really isn't a very pro-active hero, because he really just doesn't see himself as a hero). Lucias though probably would be more likely to have heard about something he did or researched it, and decided to try and find and get him if he could. Which would primarily consist of trying to set him on fire, since a dagger would almost certainly do nothing lol.

@the_immortal:

Yeah, Lukes' bio is a bit outdated. He isn't really an evil villain. He's a warrior from across the universe who was blown to Earth, due to this he suffers from PTSD and DID, so he can be a hero, but when certain triggers happen he resorts to basically a being of insane destruction. So an hero or villain route could go either way imo.

Plus, if you're going to use Lucias' beware with that fire stuff, cause Luke gets stronger by absorption of energy which also gives him more wicked powers. *LOL*

Ah, alright, nice!

Wow, worst possible person for Lucias to fight lol. This is why he sticks to street levelers most fo the time.

Ok, should probably go with Salvio. Whether it ends up mostly being him trying to stop the destruction, or if we go some other route. Lucias is still pretty combat prone (or investigative) in regards to what he's actually done in rp. So while something could be managed, Salvio might work better.

For Salvio I guess, yeah, either he's trying to stop him causing so much destruction. Or save people. Or we set it up more casually and let Salvio's more outward personality help move things along?

@luke_jackson:

Sweet! Well I can't start tonight. Maybe tomorrow, unless you do. But first should we set it up starting off with powers or not?

Normally, it'd be not. Since Salvio usually just acts when he sees an issue, and since he's so fast and the phasing messes up how light reflects off him, he never gets seen properly. So you know, nobody ever knows who it was. If he saw someone with super-powers, or who seemed out of place, he might really want to check it out. Or if some crime occurred and he noticed, he'd intervene and return to what he was doing immediately after.

But he does sometimes use a skin colored morph-suit mask if he feels like messing around and sometimes going at high speeds, and sometimes not. Take this route though, he's mostly just going to be running around somewhere that's abandoned for the fun of it. Not actually doing much.

Sounds good? Gonna head to bed soon but if you've got a city in mind I'll mention it when I post sometime tomorrow evening. If not I'll just be vague about it (location is mostly irrelevant, cause you know phase running, but speaking english is definitely preferable)

Oh no, he was just running around there at the time. I actually haven't decided where he lives because I don't know where I want his families restaurant to be. It might actually work just fine there, good way to avoid getting caught (because his family has secrets)

Although actually Expendaville might make sense regardless, so that's fine either way. especially since he's been doing that stuff with Catherine.

Splendid!

@the_immortal: A thoroughly new character. I don't really care what universe or canon.

Name:Dominique "Dom" Carpenter
Age:18
GenderMale

Born Dominique Carpenter, Dom led a fairly easy life growing up in the suburbs of Charleston, South Carolina. His parents were well off enough to send Dom to college without him having to work for any additional expense in either living cost or tuition fees. Physics, Engineering and Chemistry were his major subjects, eventually getting a degree in engineering.

Dom became a part of a world renowned construction firm dedicated to brave and bold new ventures in the areas of engineering and construction, and Dom fit right in as a daring individual who did not back down from a challenge.

While the absurdity and brunt of the challenges the young man faced were tackled by those working below him, Dom still had the major role of actually coming up with designs that were feasible.

Among these were an underwater theme park built about 500 meters below sea level. It was costly venture, but one that the company he worked for was willing to invest in. As the engineering designer and coordinator, all the pressure was on Dom to succeed.

When faced with absurd challenges, men often turn to unrealistic means as either comfort or to cheat out of their undertaking. A year or two into the construction of the underwater theme park, the now 19 year old realized that his dreams were for naught and that he had very little hope of actually making the project a reality.

Only by starting work did he realize the underlying faults of his plan. By then, down payments to sub-contractors were paid and raw materials had started to come in. Dom hoped to carry out an unrealistic ruse for as long as he could. And he carried out this ruse for a very long time.

He awaited failure.

Failure never came.

Rather than being happy about it, instead, the young man was only troubled and paranoid. He had no idea why it was working but at last, an underwater themepark was built and it was functioning at 100% in the middle of the cold Atlantic.

You would think that this is the end. But you would be wrong. Because 3 years later, the now 22 year old who is the managing director of the park began receiving reports of unsettling nature.

People were drowning without actually drowning. Corpses whose blood smeared on walls, and fingerprints of blood along thick glass walls of empty hallways? THINGS WERE NOT RIGHT!

What exactly is the cause of all this? This, Dom wanted the answers to.

This is not an outlier to the RP that I want to have. But here is an idea:

  • Dom hires an investigator to come down to the park and investigate what exactly is going on.
  • My character Dom meets yours somewhere to discuss his troubles. Somewhere on land

Dom does not have powers but that doesn't mean your character cannot as well.

@hegemon:

Yeah I can work with that. Well here really are what I can think of here.

The Immortal/Lucias Carpenter might fit that fine. He isn't a private investigator, but he's been hunting people for over a thousand years so he is able to get good at evidence and picking up data. And that is absolutely the type of thing he'd want to investigate. He, as his name suggests, immortal. Think human phoenix minus the flying. Now he is able to create fire (on himself, he can spread it with focus to specific things, and avoid burning other things with focus as well, but it is also just as painful as if he was actually on fire). He's a fairly good guy, and because he usually uses his ability defensively just to survive, it shouldn't pose a problem if we want to keep whatever is doing this in the physical advantage. He can use it offensively, but we can avoid that if you want pretty easily.

Amicus_Pacis character, the Salvio Spini, isn't a private investigator but I'm rather on the way to making him either that or some kind of superhuman detective. He's got a fairly sharp mind (no where near Sherlock Holmes or Monk, but he's still clever). But if we want to avoid a character that's too powerful, we shouldn't use him. His phase running (think speedster, but if they were always phasing, rather then being able to just run really fast) would make investigation go a lot quicker (as well as fighting) and his healing rate is very useful to him, so keep that in mind. He'd also want to take a look at this, but he's 18 and a very happy fellow. He's not as hardened as Lucias has become. He is way more dangerous offensively though.

The only other option I'd have is that it's somebody related to Salvio, (his family in Italy is influential, and dangerous. Known as the Royals (three big families, think messengers/transport/spies, assassins/specialist, and main force/superhumans). It's very secretive and actually has a bit of influence over normal people because they don't go after the poor and are known for basically gifting random people stuff.) If we go this route I'd probably just need to finish building one of the characters I had for the family, and the idea would probably be that they hear about it, and want to help, but the return is that he'll owe them "a favor" which they'll tell him not to worry about, because it won't be to kill anyone or get them killed, but may not want to specify what it is they may want in the future. Just that they may like having the option.

@hegamon:

I think you’re misinterpreting what I told you with that being all there is. I put emphasis on that here because your story didn’t sound like you wanted thing to move quickly, with Salvio that can happen.

Lucias and Salvio both have pretty already set up personalities and histories to explain what they’re like.

Lucias is absurdly dedicated to his goals, understanding of issues but will not waver about what he knows, and is aware he cannot accomplish everything. He just tries to do what he’s able. He’s a bit of a broken man because he was literally burned alive for his the convenience of his king to switch from his mother to another woman (explained more in the bio) and since then he’s basically been on an eternal hunt for injustice the law doesn’t provide. Which mostly revolves around murdering those who don’t seem to have mercy for killing or torturing the innocent. He’s clever because he’s spent so long doing this, not because he’s actually a genius. He’s actually a pretty normal guy but with very terrible experiences, and a very long time to get used to what he does. That, and being unkillable kind of helps form another aspect of his personality.

Salvia is, essentially, a child. He’s got little interest in being a superhero, he just has really powerful abilities that let him help whenever he happens to be around. He enjoys using his powers like a normal person might enjoy preforming stunts or something else physical they love. He lives life as if he were a kid who just happens to have superpowers, rather than letting superpowers define what he does, he just treats it as another part of life. It can enhance his life, but shouldn’t lead his life. He can be awkward as can be seen in his rp’s With Black Felina but he’s definitely still going to want to help people. Salvio’s family plays a part because his parents decided to leave the life and were mostly allowed to, and never told Salvio who they were with, especially once he showed powers and stopping robberies. So Salvio just sees it as having a lot of family, some of whom are semi adopted.

They’re not lacking in characterization just because I mostly informed you about powers. But characterization doesn’t help if their powers get in the way of the story, which can definitely happen and has happened to me in the past. So I always try and get that out of the way first.

If I might point out, you actually didn’t give any information on Doms personality either, you just have a history, which isn’t really the same thing.

@the_immortal: Cool cool I like Salvia a lot! Sorry I accused you there

I think we can do something where Salvia is down at the park on a vacation or something. (I'd also prefer to RP via PMs if you don't mind.) and he (or she??) comes across some disturbingly horrific things which will be the focus of the whole RP.
