There's one additional spec that you should be sure to add, if you're a traveller from Earth. A very important one: Your special ability. All travellers from Earth gain a special power when they travel to El-Hazard, like Fujisawa's super strength, or Makoto's ability to "interface" with ancient El-Hazard technology. It's important that we know the abilities you're getting ahead of time, so that we can decide whether the ability will be allowed or not.

If you'd like to keep your special ability a secret from the other players for some reason, feel free to contact either Fujisawa or I by private mail, and we'll discuss it out of sight of the rest of the list. ^_^

Name: Kane  
Age: 19  
Birthdate:'shayla-shaylas grandchild, younger brother of the current Priestress of fire  
'Calya-Calya'(or 'Karuya-Karuya' spoken)  
Side: Roshtaria (Good)  
Occupation: envys the Priestresses for their powers and trys to gain similar abilitys  
Previous occupations: traveled through the Bugrom realms for training and ability  
development.  
Height: 5'7''
Hair color: red  
Eye color: Green  
Blood Type: O

Kane is the grandchild of Shayla-Shayla and younger brother of 'Calya-Calya', the current priestress of fire.
His mother was Priestress of fire before her, but as she disappeared on a yourney through the bugrom realms
without any sign of life, it was decided to call her deceased (Kane was 2 and Calya-Calya 4 years old).  
At that time grandma Shayla-Shayla took care of Kane and his sister and began to educate them in the way  
priestresses were educated, at the age of 7 and 9 years.
 
Aware of that only his sister could become a priestress Shayla told Kane when he was 12 to leave and to gain own
experience. So he left and went on his first yourney to find someone to teach and train him. Calya-Calya went to
the temples to become a priestress now. So the years passed by and Cayla-Cayla became the priestress of fire while
Kane became martial artist.  

At the age of 17 Kane returned to Roshtaria after he travelled the Bugrom realms and even trained a few month at the  
Phantom Tribe. He never made real friends in that time, so he got a little lonely.
Back in Roshtaria he met his sister again. At first Calya-Calya didn't recognize him and fought him as he made a  
little fun of her. It was a hard and long fight and SHE won in the end. That was the time when he started to envy
her abilitys and started to peek on her while she was training. He studied her moves and started to develop a strategy
to beat her. But there was one problem: He had to gain control of fire as well.  

So he started another yourney through the differend realms for about 2 years to find something to get that ability.  
He even started training at vulcanon pits what made him almost completely fire resistant. He failed this yourney and
returned to Roshtaria again. When he met his sister this time, HE finally kicked HER ass!   But a few months later SHE
challanged HIM again and won! And this is how it goes over and over again.

Now Kane is 19 and Calya-Calya 21. Their strenght is almost equal but they never stop trying to be better than the other.
But they're still brother and sister so they make fun of each other, hold together and love each other as before.
Grandma Shayla is very proud of them both and glad that all developed well.

Name - Fiore Venus Roshtaria
Age - 16
Birthdate - April 3
Location - Roshtaria (Good)
Occupation - Princess
Height - 5'6
Hair Color - Dark Brown (Like Fatora's)
Skin Color - Tanned (like Fugisawa)
Eye Color - Green
Blood Type - AB
Skills - Swordfighting, use of the Eye of God.

Fiore, (better known as Fio) is definatley more adventurous than her twin, Keora. Fiore's favorite pastime is sneeking out of the palace, disguised as a man. Although she is the eldest sister, and naturally, heir to the throne of Roshtaria, she couldn't care less about running the country. She dislikes formal occaisions even more, and even though she is a Princess, it is a struggle to get her into a dress.

Name - Keora Venus Roshtaria
Age - 16
Birthdate - April 3
Location - Roshtaria (Good)
Occupation - Princess
Height - 5'6
Hair Color - Light Brown (Like Rune's)
Skin Color- Ivory (Really, really white)
Eye Color - Blue
Blood Type - AB
Skills - Use of the Roshtarian Royal Army, Use of the Eye of God.

A sweet, prim and proper young lady, whom looks up to her big sister with something like reverance. Knowing she will never be a leader does not discourage her from making all of the major political discisions in the stead of her sister, who normally is running around outside the castle.


The Roshtarian Royal Twins... As different as night and day, as twins go. Keora, the youngest Princess, usually stays at home and looks beautiful, while her athletic sister roams the countryside looking for adventure. The two are the decendants of Rune Venus and that guy in the Alternative World... can anyone tell me his name? Anyways, apparently he and Rune did a little fooling around on the sky thing, and when Rune came back, she had a Prince. That Prince was born sickly, and it was a plain miracle that he had kids at all, let alone TWINS! He died later, when the girls were still young, leaving them to be raised with... GRANNY FATORA!!! And Grandma Rune. No wonder they're such opposites, it's obvious who helped raise who!

*Chuckles* I've seen this spelled more different ways than any other name in El-Hazard. Here's a few more possible spellings:

Chabil
Sheval
Carville
Charville
Shabil
Chavil

Take your pick, or make up your own. It doesn't really matter. ^_^;; If it's any help, though, I belive that the English closing credits list his name as "Chabil".

-Name: Alex Hathaway
-Age: 23

-Occupation: Explorer (basically for a way home)
-Previous Occupation: Student
-Height: 6'2" (188cm)

Alex does not want to be here.  While this looks like a nice place, his home is not here, his friends are not here, the girl he's in love with is not here.  Flying is a neat trick, but it doesn't make up for what he really wants.  Unfortunately, it looks like he's going to have to figure out this strange new world if he's ever going to find his way home...

I wonder if it would be a good idea to put skin color down? That's if you want to make a black or hispanic chara. I also put down skills. I think it's useful to list those as well. What do you think?


Title: Re: Post Character Specs!

k Here's my full character profile.
BTW, you forgot an important part of info for the profiles: Gender!  ;D Just fyi.

-Name : Nolan Rhiestler
-Age : 20
-Gender: Male
-Birthdate : Feb 18 1983, earth years
-Location (Side) :  Traveler (None at moment)
-Occupation : Student, Mcdonalds 'cook', slacker (heh)
-Previous Occupation : None
-Height : 5'11
-Hair Color : Black
-Eye Color : Gold
-Skin Color: White, Caucasian
-Blood Type : A+

-Short Profile/Introduction:
Nolan arrived in EH from Earth while he was driving his old white '85 Tempo on a highway outside of his hometown, Ottawa Canada.  Intelligent and curious, he has a knack for using and fixing computers. His special ability is, as it was with Makoto Mizuhara, the ability to interact with and use ancient el hazard technology, a gift which he has no knowledge of at the moment. A born pessimist and cynic, Nolan will generslly assume the worse of two possibilities, if given the choice. He enjoyes listening to Industrial Rock and electronic rock, as well as plain ol' Rock, whenever he can :)


Hope this covers it.  :)

Title: Re: Post Character Specs!
Post by: Shade on June 17, 2003, 02:53:43 PM
Revised and updated, for great justice.

-Name: Alex Hathaway
-Age: 23
-Gender: Male  
-Birthdate: May 25, 19xx
-Birthplace: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
-Lineage: Caucasian
-Height: 6'2" (188cm)
-Hair Color: Black  
-Eye Color: Brown  
-Blood Type: O-
-Location\Side: Roshtaria\Side
-Occupation: Explorer (basically for a way home)  
-Previous Occupation: Student  

-Special Ability: Personal flight, top speed unknown.  Alex is reluctant to do anything too reckless, as he's uncertain how long this'll last, and he doesn't want it to fizzle out while he's at high speeds.  A side effect of his ability are very thin, transparent membranes that cover his eyes and protect them while in flight.

Alex was digging through his backpack while waiting for a bus when the crossover occured, dumping him in the middle of the sky.  It took his subconscious a moment to realize that he could now fly, and though he was able to hold onto the pack, he lost everything inside of it.  He really does not want to be here.  While this looks like a nice place, his home is not here, his friends are not here, the girl he's in love with is not here.  Flying is a neat trick, but it doesn't make up for what he really wants.  Unfortunately, it looks like he's going to have to figure out this strange new world if he's ever going to find his way home...

Don't worry, Lar, you can always defect if you get too lonely. ;D And there are a lot of travellers that haven't chosen sides, yet - who knows? Maybe some of them will decide to hook up with the big bad bugs.

And I think I've finally figured out what sort of character I wanna be!

-Name: Itamar Lowe
-Age: 17
-Gender: Male
-Birthdate: January 10, 1916
-Birthplace: Prague, Czecheslovakia
-Lineage: Semetic
-Height: 5'9"
-Hair: Black, short, curly
-Eyes: Brown
-Blood Type: O+
-Location (Side): Phantom Tribe
-Occupation: None
-Previous Occupation: Student

-Special ability: Indestructibility - Itamar's skin is as tough as that of any armor cat. It is nearly impossible to cut, break, or even bruise him. That being said, Itamar is no stronger or heavier than an average human male, so he can still be thrown, knocked down, or overpowered in any other conventional way.

-Backstory: Itamar was born Jewish at a time and place very unfortunate for Jews - Prague, during World War I. While Itamar's family survived the first war mostly unscathed, they were forced to deal with bitter anti-semitism in the years following. Even before Germany invaded his homeland, Itamar had heard stories of Jewish families being carted off to "holding camps", and he and his family lived in constant fear of being taken themselves.

For Itamar, at least, the strange glowing light that transported him to El-Hazard was a salvation of sorts. He prays daily in thanks for saving him from the nightmare he'd had to deal with at home. Needless to say, he has no desire to go back, except possibly for the opportunity to rescue his friends and family and bring them, too, to El-Hazard.



My intention with this guy is to make him sort of a "Magneto-lite". He'll hear a mostly-truthful accounting from the Shadow Tribe of how they'd been feared and hated throughout the centuries, and see in it similarites with the plight of his own people back home. He'll take it upon himself to try to help them against Roshtaria and the Allied Nations.

If anyone feels that his special power is a little too powerful, feel free to tell me so. But keep in mind that he IS going to be a villain, of sorts, and villains typically need an extra edge to keep the playing field level. ;)

It's also interesting to note that armor cats are apparently quite vulnerable to high energy blasts (Ifurita's key staff).  So perhaps this works for you, too.

Actually, as I see it, Armor Cats are surprisingly resilliant against Demon God blasts. Most beings, upon being shot at point-blank range by Ifurita, would suddenly have a very large hole in them. But Ura, she just thrashed around on the ground a bit going "OWOWOWOWOW!!!" and then she was fine. ;D

Post by: Captain Southbird (EHOL Creator) on June 18, 2003, 12:46:12 AM
Yes, but... there was pain anyway.  And a hole that appeared to exist in the flesh.  And Ura was carried back by Nanami when they all exited the tomb area.  So I think it must've hurt a bit immediately. :P

Name: Darmicon Molron
Age: 20
Race: Human
World of birth: Earth
Job: Game/Graphics designer
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Sandy brown
Hight: 5' 11''
Blood type: O-
Clothes: He wears only one set of clothes, that being black pants, and a blue T-shirt, and a black sweatshirt with the cuffs off, and holes where the elbows were. (A.K.A "Grummy shirt")
Favored side: Neutral, though he straves a bit tworads Roshitarias side. (altough he'll probably just switch sides)
Birthdate: 1983 A.D.
Superhuman power: Super speed

Backstory: Darmicon has been, and will always be, someone with too much time on his hands. When he was 6, he found that he could all of his work during class, which started him down the road. Soon after, it was discovered that he was exceptionally bright, letting him skip a few levels of high school. After he blew through school, he visited his friend, who was in the process of making a game.

Darmicon had many ideas for the game, and together, they released a few copies, though, which made them more determined to make games. Darmicon was hired on the spot, and together, they have produced some games of small repute.

After a few months, Darmicon got the hang of coding, though how to use the proper method was beyond him. Altough people say he's wasting his time, Darmicon can smile, and proceed to laugh.

After all, they're the miserable ones...

(Hopefully, this is the last time I revamp my bio)

Whoa! Hang on there, tiger. Did you read through the EHOL RPG??? thread, where we laid down our rules? Currently, we're only allowing player characters to be natives of Earth and of El-Hazard. That means that mages are out, and so are elves, I'm afraid. This is intended to keep the game from becoming too complex, and from alienating players who might not be able to relate with some of the "wilder" character ideas people come up with.

We are willing to listen, though, and you can try to convince us. If you can come up with a good reason that a half-elven mage will enhance the game significantly more than another human will, then we may relax the rules for you. Until then, we're gonna stick by them.

Still, I suppose I can't blame you for not reading the rules, since they're scattered all over the place... I'll write a new topic to cover the rules, so that this kind of thing doesn't happen in the future.

Post by: Tsukasa on July 15, 2003, 07:30:45 PM
I was wondering about a character idea i had but i thoguht I would ask first to make sure of it.

The idea would be of a possible child of Makoto and Ifurita.  Of course their powers woudl be very limited from thier mothers probbly have a limit like only able to copy 1 power or 2, and either discard it or keep it depdning on which after the fight.  And probbly flying and that woudl be all.

I wanted to check as said lol don't wanan make one they find out it's not right now ^_^


Title: Re: *OOC* Post Character Specs!
Post by: Fujisawa4654 on July 15, 2003, 10:10:31 PM
That is perfectly fine Tsukasa. You can be a child of any character, including the TV characters. Your power can be what you have said, but the problem is absorbing the types of power. If you absorb.. Oh lets say.... 2 powers, one being Spanner's character, he has a thick skin, and some other power that can reject inertia.

If you don't know what I am saying, what I mean is, you're indestructable and you can't be knocked to the ground or whatever.

I would have to say.. That if you absorb 2 powers, both of them have to wither away after some given time. Give it some thought. Once you're ready, you can post your character specs. We'll let you know if you have done something wrong, chances are you won't ;)

BTW welcome to the RPG Forums.


Title: Re: *OOC* Post Character Specs!
Post by: Spanner on July 15, 2003, 11:16:32 PM
*Nods* I agree with Fujisawa for the most part. (Actually, I hadn't originally planned to give Itamar an "inertia control" power, but I think I probably should. He'll be too easy to defeat if he can be tossed around just like anyone else, regardless of how tough he is.)

I would also suggest that you provide an explanation for just HOW Makoto and Ifurita had a child. Did they build one together? Or is Ifurita partially human? And if she is partially human, just how is it that she's still fertile after so many thousands of years? ;D

You might also like to know that Ifurita and Makoto are not currently on El-Hazard in this game, both to prevent Ifurita from being too powerful a force in the game, and also to allow the premise to stand (if the Eye of God is malfunctioning, it's highly probable that Makoto and Ifurita would be able to fix it, or at least stop it). That doesn't mean that they couldn't have left their child behind, though, or sent the child from wherever they are.

I, myself, play the child of Makoto and Ifurita in another RPG. She didn't get any of her mother's Demon God powers, but she did inherit her dad's knack with machines. And popularity with the opposite sex. ;)

Post by: Tsukasa on July 16, 2003, 03:59:30 PM
^_^ That is a very good idea there Fujisawa I liek the wirthing of the abilites I was going to refine it more to projectile attacks since we never do see ifurita absorb anything esle other than the eye of god's abilty which itself is a projectile attack.

I'll have a bio out for her soon with my ideas and how lol she was born there Spanner ^_^ I can have had her staying with others while her mother and father are gone lol

Question 1: What about the phantom side? Is there stuff you can do with them? I'd have a couple of ideas, mostly because, well, I find them interesting and could never use the ideas I had for them.
I just post the idea. If the phantoms - for some odd reason, since its usually extremely unlikely - are already defined and having tons of characters, then cut the first idea.


My main ideas were(I have two)
-a really old old OLD old old demon goddess. Who, unlike Ifurita, did not sleep.
Now, that obviously causes quite some problems for her. Demons were most likely not build to work for all eternity, which would make her existance quite hard. Systems failing sometimes, for instance. Circuits failing. The general degeneration having spread so far that she has to limit her energy output to about the one of a priestess to avoid a chain reaction in her energy core which would result in her death, instead of the one of a cizy

First thing. Second one, in this idea, would be that her obedience circuit has failed since a long time ago. Which is why she would be on the phantom side. The idea was that, at the point of the war, someone sent her - one of the earlier models of the demon goddess series, and thus lacking several of the (moral) failsaves - to anhiliate something. By then, she already was a problem and known to act erratically, and shutdown/destruction was already planned pretty soon.

Well, she never executed the attack, because [I am going along the theory that demongods are a thing between human and machine, sharing elements of both, sustaining strains with an energy source of some way, which is why Ifurita was preserved in her current state - and which is why she could do expressions and cry] her conscience overrode the obedience circuit/programm/mindwipe/brainwash. Instead of anhiliating the people covering in fear before her, she chose to protect them from the senseless slaughter. Which happened - chances are in any story ^_^ - to be blue skinned people. Thus, these people, ragged escapees of things they did not understand, being torn from their world into this light, strange, dimension, got access on a couple of things. Power to defend themselves. Wisdom of the area. Maps of a system of underground caves and storages
After all, somehow the phantom tribe survived the disaster - which is quite a feat, and help certainbly is reasonable.

They probably saw her first as some sort of saviour, and now as some sort of motherly figure. The reason why she did not participate in OVA1 was because she, obviously due the points above, clearly rejected these plans, frustrating Galus' fraction quite a bit(and thus making her support a different fraction in the tribe, automatically giving the phantom tribe some depth).

Which would bring is to today. The phantom tribe has covered themselves in shadows, I assume - not wishing to suffer revenge after the events of OVA1. Now that the Eye of God is messing up again, its reasonable that some phantoms are on the move as well. Not neccessairly with "good" intentions. Who knows what adult Nahato is up to? Revenge for his mentor(nevermind the pedophil undertones >_< Cut galus cut cut cut you out!)? Many possibilities...


Another would be a traveller who, supposedly, arrives around now. Which is not true. Said traveller has arrived earlier, probably during the first hiccups of the Eye. The phantom tribe got her first, though....thus sending in an agent of their own to Roshtaria...


Cut me if I suck with stupid ideas here XD
By the way, Spanner could probably tell that I'm well versed with demons(Ifurita! XD), so could Tsukasa, although he doesn't remember my old one, a shame =D
Itamar Lowe  seems to be on the phantom side as I see it, but has there been done much? ^^' Again sorry if I sound stupid here, I AM after all a ditz

*Nods* So far, I'm the only one here to do anything with the Phantom Tribe, Alexei, but if you are interested in creating a character involved with the Phantom Tribe, I'll be happy to help you get caught up on what I have done with them so far.

Up to this point, Lord Nahato has attempted a "kinder, gentler" approach to trying to get Itamar to join their cause, so there's plenty of room to set up a "Tribe Mother" Demon God if you so desire.

It'd be nice to have some more on the Evil side. Once we're done with Chapter 2, we probably won't have anything to do unless some other thing comes in.

If you won't mind, then I certainly would try ^_^ I know how it is to be alone on one side. It gets boring quickly =/

Should be of some help for you, so it'd be nice if you'd give me a hand to what has been done =]

^_^ That is a very good idea there Fujisawa I liek the wirthing of the abilites I was going to refine it more to projectile attacks since we never do see ifurita absorb anything esle other than the eye of god's abilty which itself is a projectile attack.

I'll have a bio out for her soon with my ideas and how lol she was born there Spanner ^_^ I can have had her staying with others while her mother and father are gone lol



I've refined the idea of her powers to protjectile attacks like the Priestess's for example and powers like such.  She would have limited flight but it tires her down  unlike her mother so she can only do it for a short time and not very fast like Ifurita.

A little thought I did have was that Makoto and Ifurita sent her blanking out why and how they sent her to where she is now since she could probbly be accessed like Ifurita could be


Wanted to check on this before I worked on her personailtiy


Title: Re: *OOC* Post Character Specs!
Post by: Tsukasa on November 17, 2003, 07:53:02 AM
-Name: Hitomi Mizuhara
-Age: 16
-Gender: Female
-Birthdate:
-Birthplace: Unknown possibly Roshtaria
-Lineage: Only child to Makoto Mizuhara and the Legendary demon goddess Ifurita
-Height: 5'6"
-Hair: Brown with Blue streaks/highlights in it
-Eyes: Blue
Skin- Pale like Ifurita's
-Blood Type: O+
-Location (Side): Good (Roshtaria\Floristica)
-Occupation: N/A ( umm demi demon goddess?)
-Previous Occupation:  N/A

-Special ability: Like her mother she has the abilty to absorb certain skills that are used against her, though unlike Ifurita she can only absorb and learn Projectile attacks, such as the Priestess's attacks.

 There is a limit to this being also Makoto's child and that is she is only limited to absorbing 2 abilties at a time and once she has these they slowly fade over a limited time till she has to reabsorb the attack.  Hitomi mostly gained abilties from her mother thanks to the genetic altering that was done to Ifurita to make her into a demon goddess her genes were mainly dominate than Makoto's where.

The absorbing takes alot out of her unlike Ifurita she has no power key staff at all and her body is mor of a humans so she tries out if useing her powers to much.

Ifurita did teach her and her own request on how to fight without using powers since she often does not relie on them knowing the double edged sword they can be.


-Backstory: Makoto researched long and hard once he and Ifurita were finally married.  They both wanted to have a real family like all of thier friends were getting as they grew.  It hurt Ifurita to slowly watch Makoto himself, become older by the day.   It took Makoto 10 long of research  years but he found that Ifurita was not a machine but rather she was once a human who was selected to be altered by gentic manipualtion and the use of machines to make her into the demon goddess of legend.  

They tried many times for a baby mostly ending in failure which sadden them till atlast they were finally able to have thier daughter named Hitomi.  When Makoto and Ifurita left without a word thier daughter also did with them.  In time she grew and showed she had none of her fathers abilties but more in common with her mothers.  Though her personilty was nothing like you would expect from having parents like those two.  Ture she could be cold like her mother was but also she had a short fuse to her and her temper Makoto stated could rival that of Shayla-Shayla's.

Hitomi has no idea how she got to where she is now at all.  All she remembers is one moment she was with her mother and father the next is waking up around some old ruins in the middle of no where as it looked. She feels anger to her parents right now for dumping her in a place she does not know and for her father tampering with her memories which she guessed due to her blacking out.

She has quite a legacy to live upto being the daughter of Makoto and the DemonGoddess Ifurita

(Yes like Ifurita anyone with Makoto's powers can access her mind and thoughts in the same way)

Well, since Miles' little toy is making it's way to Floristica and it's definatly not something that all of us can handle... A Demon Goddess appearance might be nice to have. It might bring some interest to Arsyn along the way too and story development is never a bad thing. :P


Title: Re: *OOC* Post Character Specs!
Post by: tvifurita on November 17, 2003, 05:16:54 PM
Here I go. If it sucks, I'll rewrite it as usual ^^

-Name CTA-005    (shitia, which I will use from now on)
-Age 20000+, active most of the time, not counting "resting"
-Birthdate: Meansured in a calendar that has lost its meaning
-Location: Phantom Tribe
-Occupation: Demon Goddess (of corruption), Phantom Tribe protector
-Previous Occupation: Nuker of cities, silent assassin, slayer of many
-Height very tall - probably normal for a demon, though
-Hair Color - deep black
-Eye Color - red
-Blood Type - altered, similar to A

Physical description: See Picture(short one here. pic will be better)
Tall, kneelong black hair, which is rather scruffy, blood red eyes, thick lines below the eyes, (she does not "sleep" at all), depressed look, a grey top-thing(a little like a tank top, just arabic style - somewhat like runes) and a long grey skirt(slit over left leg), all of that with a really pale complexion.
On her leg she'd have some sort of tatoo or runes, but she would lack jewelry. She also wears long gloves, and also light shoes, both colored the same as her other clothing. The top and skirt are somewhat accentuating her body, but without being -too- tight (more arabic here)

Mental Description: Shitia is a lone woman. Most she has met have perished long ago. People she called friends, even the few lovers she probably had, have already turned to dust millenias ago.
And it shows. While she has learned to hide her lonelyness, she does not show many happy emotions, in fact she does not show many emotions at all, anymore, and usually appears to be fairly cold and/or depressed. The rings beyond her eyes are actually not makeup, but a sign - since she IS organic in party - that she rarely sleeps. Reason is, she can't do that much. Unlike humans, she is cursed with a flawless memory. Which means that she cannot just forget painful things, and things she has to do, yet which she knows to be wrong. She has burdened herself with several sins, including "disposing" of possible treats to "her" people - and as a being which DOES have moral obligations, this does become a problem.
While a human who would be troubled like she is would probably just give up, she does not let herself do this. This is a relic of her control program, and most of what actually does keep her going: To, somehow, archive peace. In any means neccessairy. She is willing to take much more terrible things upon her soul in the process, though - she has not much to loose, anyway, knowing that she won't last another thousand years in any way.

Powers:
Oh there's a couple, naturally. Like flight, perfect memory(photographic), using her powers without a power key staff(since this method had not been created yet), several fighting skills, including general - fast - martial artistic-like skills, supported by the North Capital fighting style, which she uses rather to accelerate and speed around instead of just nuking things like Shayla does, making it a rather FAST way.
Add in a couple of stealth skills, and you are set. Its a demon. What did you expect?

Flaws:
A couple, 20000 years take their toll. First, the perfect memory. Thats actually a flaw. Second, her body itself. Its not in the best shape, and some parts are rather failing and thus require her to pay attention or attempt to fix it...somehow. She can't go at her full power anymore, as that'd simply overload her. She can probably take a priestess or two, but three would defeat her if they don't act just stupid and goof up Majorly(thats a pun).
Also, she has to regain energy more often than others, and often, in combat, maneuvers requiring more energy will start with her absorbing some energy(not of attacks but of the surroundings - either like Kalia did, or just by doing it with light) - which shows that she will attack(it would darken around her noticably by day.
Recharging itself takes a while as well - the more energy(light, warmth) is around the higher the speed of recharging.


History:
Shitia is one of the earlier models of the group that would later be known as "Demon Gods".
Thus, she is quite farther from perfection in comparison to, say, Ifurita, possessing many flaws Ifurita would never have. She was not built as a weapon of mass destruction as such, although her abilities of old would have sustained to cause severe damages. Her intended purpose had been infiltration and assassination - it was later that her creators noticed the potential in her class and used her for other means - usually cleaning up after other attacks. And cleaning up did not mean just clearing the dust... Upon that foundation, other Demons were made, culminating in the "Ifurita" feared upon all of El Hazard even millenias after the war.
Shitia had several flaws though, not all of them of her actual "construction"(or better: altering of an actual human being in a way most would see as magic these days), but rather of her mind...
She(and some others like her, for that regard) had already been reported for unrealiability and somewhat sporadic odd behaviour, so she would have been "erased" sooner or later anyhow. However, that never happened. During that time, Shitia was sent to destroy the remains of a small city, to make sure that all the inhabitants were killed. It was war, after all. However, there she met something that was alien to her. Beings, close to human, yet clearly not, shivering in fear of this world, hiding in the shadows to escape the light that was too bright for them. It was then that her control program finally felt down. She just could not kill them.

She now was, for the first time she could remember, left to decide what to do. Her decision resembled what the human she had once been, before being turned into CTA-005, the demoness, would have done - she took pity. Ever since then, she has accompagned this small race of people. It was her who provided the initial plans for their future shelter - actually a connected system of caves and storages meant to sustain people that had already been made to leave this world months before, forcefully...
At first she had just been a saviour, who was greatly welcomed. Later, she served as some sort of tribe mother or priestess, and, due her memory, was what preserved the tradition up to this day. ironically, it was also her who kept the hate for all that time. She remembered everything, and did not lie to the phantoms about it, thus never allowing their past to be forgotten. She has not realized that, though.

Spanner, I'd still like..that info---prettyplease T_T pm discussion?


I know - I'm so sorry I've kept you waiting! :bawl But rather than discuss this via private message, I think it would be better if we did so on this list. Background on the Shadow Tribe is useful for the other players to know, as well.

First off, the best way to learn what there's been so far on the Shadow Tribe is to go to the "The Adventure Begins!" thread and read replies

4 and 14 on page 1
22 and 16 on page 2,
41 on page 3
77 on page 6,
and 125 on page 9.

These are all the posts I've done so far for Itamar Lowe and his encounter with the Phantom Tribe.

In them, several things are revealed about the Shadow Tribe:



1. They have been quiet for many years. In my take on them, I felt that after their big campaign to try to take the Eye of God failed, they decided to lay low - to fade back into the shadows. The Bugrom and the Alliance know that they are there, but with two generations of people being born never having known the Shadow Tribe as active enemies, they are slowly becoming more like legends than actual foes. Which is exactly how the Tribe likes it.

2. Nahato is in charge. However he managed it, whether it was by inheritence or by political manipulation, Nahato became the leader of the Phantom Tribe after Galus's death. He is a stern and sometimes ruthless leader, but not unwise. His people respect him, and obey him without question. He bears a grudge against the Alliance and the Bugrom for Galus's death, but has not let that cloud his judgement. He, like Galus and many others in the tribe believes that peace is something that will never be possible with the Alliance. In his mind, in order for the Phantom Tribe to finally emerge from the shadows, they will need some serious leverage over the Alliance, preferably enough to conquer them. He is willing to wait and watch for the best opportunity, though, and he sees such an opportunity in Itamar Lowe.

3. The Phantom Tribe has many homes. With the overwhelming numbers possessed by the Alliance, as well as the Eye of God, it could be disastrous if the home of the Phantom Tribe was ever found. So, in the event that such a thing occurs, everyone in the Tribe is ready to pack up their things and move to another underground complex at a moment's notice. Itamar's appearance deep within the tunnels of the Tribe prompts them to move, just in case his arrival is a sign that the Alliance has found them.

4. The Phantom Tribe Never Forgets. The Phantom Tribe has been the target of many atrocities over the years, some of them provoked, others not. More than once, they have been caught unawares, and sometimes the resulting slaughters were brutal, with not even children spared. The Tribe's desire for justice is kept warm and alive through the use of storytelling accompanied by the use of illusion to recreate the terrible incidents. Itamar witnessed one such illusiary atrocity, and it hardened his heart further against the Alliance.

5. The Phantom Tribe employs a Caste system. The Phatom Tribe is divided into several Castes, including the Scientist Caste, the Warrior Caste, the Hunter Caste, and doubtless many others. It is unknown whether these Castes are something the Tribe members are born into, or whether they can choose their Caste when they come of age. Each Caste has its own rigid rules, and laws of ethics and conduct.

6. The Phantom Tribe practices indescriminate science. The Scientist Caste pride themselves on complete impartiality when it comes to their test subjects. They have no qualms about experimenting on intelligent beings, if that is what they are ordered to do (though some Scientists may dislike the practice privately).



When I was considering what I wanted the Phantom Tribe to be like, I wanted to make sure that they weren't just saints that had been led down the wrong path by Galus. They have evil within them as well as good. Some aspects of them might seem horrifyingly barbarous (like the unfeeling cruelty of their scientists), while in other aspects they seem quite reasonable. They are people, just like everyone else on El-Hazard - and they unanimously consider themselves to be a victimized people, both because of the way their ancestors were unfairly torn from their homes, and because of the rotten way they've been treated since.

I think that all of the above will work perfectly well with your design idea for Shitia. What do you think?

Great pictures, Tsukasa! I particularly like your drawing of Shitia. Her design reminds me a lot of Gilda, with her long, straight hair and grim demeanor.

Post by: tvifurita on November 18, 2003, 12:59:22 AM
Thanks thanks ^^

Anyhow - save the caste system, most of these things are things I'd actually have considered canon(and the first thing I employed like that in something I plan as well, and the illusionairy storytelling I had mentioned in another EH RPG once - you never were there though, so you can't know. Good that the ideas are so similar ^^''' makes it easier)
Making them saints would be pointless anyhow. People always do things that are wrong, provided with time, and as they say, even with good intentions, a path to hell can be made ^^ Besides, it'd be boring to make them saints and then have them plot to destroy Roshtaria/human nations as it is now.

I have no problem with either. My character might probably be involved with 4) - after all, she's a witness. Maybe she came pretty much because now Itamar is considered "safe" enough? While being a demon, she has become rather careful - after all, her shape isn't exactly the best, and fights might damage her a lot more than its good for her, in the long run, so caution is advised - and fitting with the Phantom Tribe^^.

Later today, after university, I'll read the postings you mentioned, and try to fit in. Thats okay? ^^'

Looks like I'm first new entrant in awhile. *bows* Nice to meet you all; I hope we can get along with only a modicum of senseless outbursts of violence. ;D

I PMed this character info to Fujisawa and it was approved, so here we are (with some slight modifications following our discussion). Look forward to writing with everyone. :)

---

Name: Xanas Antares
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Birthdate: September 9th
Affiliation: Shadow Tribe (Rogue) (explained below)
Occupation: Assassin
Height: 5' 7''  
Weight: 159 (pretty fit for a Shadow Tribesman, but they have a slight build)
Hair Color: Dark blue
Eye Color: Amber
Skin Color: Light blue (of course)
Blood Type: O- (do they even have the typical Rheusus types?)

Xanas (or "Xan") was something of a rarity among the Shadow Tribe when he grew up-- someone who really didn't care about going back "home." The Shadows, he reasoned; had lived in El Hazard so long they had might as well accept it... although those who insisted on resisting their inevitable dominance of the world should be "dealt with" anyway.

Xan never had the widespread illusory powers that senior Tribesmen like Galus and Najato possessed; nor the ruthless genius that characterized their scientists. Xan was treated well enough, but he knew he had no useful role as he was; nothing to help the Tribe with [to him] the more important of their goals-- purging El-Hazard.

So he did what any good teenager would do. He left.

Xan went to a remote enclave some of his friends and relatives resided at, far from the Tribe's main grounds; and began training there as a "warrior of stealth"-- an assassin, using the two most formidabe traits of the Shadow Tribe (technology and illusion). While there he learned the full story of what had happened to the Tribe's once-grand dreams of conquest and destruction-- they'd been ended by the actions of a few off-world meddlers and their pet Demon goddess.

When Xan left again, his primary mission was still "removing" the most troublesome obstacles to Shadow dominance. But now the rogue hit man had another item on his agenda-- killing off Mizuhara Makoto, Ifurita, Nanami, and all those directly related to them.

---

Weapons: Xan carries two pistols, one on his right side (he's left-handed) and the other slung over his left shoulder. The primary weapon is a needle-gun that fires bullet-like poisoned darts at high velocity (deadly, but with less mass than a bullet more likely to miss over long range due to wind resistance). The poison fits his style-- long-lasting and extremely painful; it takes roughly 15-30 excruciating minutes before death (this sounds bad, but what it means is that someone can get to an antidote or heal them in time ).

The shoulder-slung pistol is energy-based, firing pulses of electromagnetic energy-- the ideal weapon for shutting down a machine like a demon god. Beneath the main barrel is a tracking beam that can also fire a destabilizing particle ray (in case the target has some sort of shield, like Kalia).

He also has a sheathed sword on his back. Just because some opponents demand an honorable duel (heh), or in case they're too close to use the guns. For style purposes this sword is much like the one Jinnai uses in The Wanderers (which is a poor design, but it looks cool). He has two throwing daggers, one inside each boot (one of which doubles as his suicide tool if he's ever captured with no chance of escape).

Appearance: He doesn't wear armor, just a dark-blue jacket (cloaks are easier to see) over traditional Shadow Tribe garments (again, like Najato's).

My art skill is measured in imaginary numbers (just like the term in mathematics, you can estimate it, but it ain't real :D), but fortunately I can do alright with image editing. I'll probably PhotoShop something together soon.

Illusory powers: As said, nothing like the grandiose powers of deception the more powerful Tribesmen have. Xan can make himself appear invisible (although he can still be heard, smelled, touched, etc.) or displace his true location (while he's invisible, there's an illusionary double between a few feet to about ten meters away from his true location to trick people). ...and that's really about it. His powers are personal-range; he has nothing that can affect the minds of others.

---

And... I think that's it. I've plenty of story to catch up on, but once that's done I'll go ahead and jump in. Fujisawa was kind enough to give me a few ideas to work with, so I'll be hunting for trying to meet up with some of you soon.

PS - Anyone object to my using Times? Or should I use the normal font during story posts? I find Serif fonts easier to read, but I know some people on other forums I regular don't like it.

Post by: Wayne on January 14, 2004, 05:56:25 PM
Thanks for the warm welcome. :) And sorry about taking so much time getting started; I just want to make sure I've got a handle on things before I jump right in.

Here's the graphic of Xan I did. (http://atlas.walagata.com/w/wayne/xanehol.jpg) The fact that he looks very much like a Knights of the Old Republic 3D model is entirely coincidental.  ^^; The upper-right picture is a close-up of the EMP gun (the higher, wider barrel is the EM discharger; the narrower, longer barrel underneath is the alternate-fire, heh; and it has a grip if he ever needs to aim properly with it). The needle gun is pretty easy to see, although I made the primary color red so it stands out more.

A few addendums to the previous description (a few things I forgot to clarify, heh):

-Like all Shadow Tribesmen, Xan can alter his physical appearance to anything humanoid of roughly his size. He could make himself look like, say; Ifurita, but not Shaq (too tall) or a cat (too small, not humanoid). Naturally, he rarely walks around civilized areas in his true form (his 'normal' alternate form is basically himself with normal-colored skin, blonde hair, and green eyes).
-The needle gun is primarily loaded with poison needles, as above; but he also carries tranquilizers. Someone reminded me that gunfights are boring if one hit will kill you and missing all the time is boring and unrealistic. The tranquilizer works, as normal, by slowing down bodily functions until the victim is knocked out, which means shooting someone at rest works very quickly, but shooting someone active can take longer to work (and might take multiple hits).
Xan can make more needles if he access to metal and tools, but he doesn't know how to make Shadow Tribe poison (although he is trying to learn-- Shadow Tribe University, Poison Crafting 101 :D). Any others he makes would be unpoisoned needles (and basically be a lot like bullets).
-For those unaware EMP works by overloading the usually delicate and fine-tuned amounts of electricity machines run on. Needless to say this draws an inordinate amount of power and the cell would have to recharge after just a half-dozen or so shots. EMP won't noticeably hurt a human, but someone if shot would probably feel a tingle, and twitch a bit.
The particle beam uses a concentrated stream of subatomic particles (much like proton rays and torpedos you hear about in science fiction, which may or may not be possible in real life :P). Primarily it's for disrupting steady energy sources (like shields). If a human is shot with it they would probably get knocked back or down and show a light bruise or burn on the impact point. It's not lethal (or even particularly dangerous).
-The sword and knives are, as the eloquent saying goes, putting pointy things into fleshy things.

And I think that's it. (Finally, eh? :])

I have a pic of Lana somewhere. I drew it ages, and i might actually have posted it, but if I did, it wont work anymore. :P

I tried so hard on that pic, and when I was penning it in, the ink exploded all over the face, completely destroying the nose. Oh the wonders of tip-ex.

As Xan's appearance has now changed slightly (namely the new gun and the lab coat-- black trenchcoats are badly overplayed, but how about the cool guy wearing white? :D), here's a new PhotoShopped picture of him (http://atlas.walagata.com/w/wayne/xansig.jpg). Any similarities between this and Deus Ex art is entirely coincidental.  -_-

Hey, first entrant in nearly two years. I'm not entirely sure if I'll be doing major participation, but I've been told I'm pretty good at this stuff, so here goes.

-Name: Reed Warner
-Age: 24
-Birthdate: July 14th
-Location: Desert caravan near Roshtaria (origin: Earth)
-Occupation: Caravan scout - runs ahead of the pack to ensure there aren't any Bugrom waiting for them
-Previous Occupation: Horror novelist
-Height: 6'
-Hair Color: Brown - short, and just a little messy
-Eye Color: Blue - almost appear to be glowing, in the right lighting
-Blood Type: O
-Ability: Modified vision. His eyes can now sense thermal activity, see in the dark better than most, and zoom in up to 4x. Unfortunately, this does not enable him to see Phantoms, and he doesn't have as much an eye for detail as Nanami did.
-Outfit: A baggy white T-shirt bearing "Mr. Yuk" on the front in black and white, loose-fitting blue jeans, white headband
-Earthly background:

Reed was just a novelist looking for inspiration for his latest book, The Deserted Ones. During a road trip to his mother's house in Vermont, a vicious storm broke out while he was driving on the interstate. A bolt of lightning struck his car, causing the portal to El-Hazard to appear.

Both Reed and his car ended up in the desert. The lightning's strike shorted out the electrical systems, however, and the engine had stalled - so he was unable to start the engine again. He was forced to walk on through the desert, leaving his car behind for whoever needed it.

Eventually, Reed happened upon a caravan. He noticed many in-depth details about its inhabitants, despite the fact that he was nearly five hundred meters away. He thought he saw a campfire going, even though it would have been obscured by all the tents. And perhaps strangest of all, it appeared to be daylight, but judging from the fact that there was no sun to be found, it really wasn't.

Having nowhere else to go, Reed decided to join the caravan. Once he mastered his new powers of vision, he became their chief scout, ready to warn the drivers of something called Bugrom if it ever happened to appear in their path.

At this moment, Reed's caravan has announced that they are coming up on Floristica. He has no idea where that is (probably someplace in Saudi Arabia, for all he knows) but he's darn well going to find out.

Unfortunately, this game pretty much fell apart more than a year ago, and is hardly ever updated anymore. Sorry to disappoint!

Though, perhaps your enthusiasm will stir up a few of the former gamers?

Well, if not, then I could try and use Reed in an EH fanfiction or something...
