Prelude of Light
The human world has enjoyed a peaceful dozen years since the Qliphoth Incident, yet unbeknownst to those above, the Underworld has been rather busy for the last few years. The first hint of a coming storm occurs in the city of Camlann, as demons seem to be bubbling below the surface, ready to burst at the seams.
So this is a Devil May Cry RP. Not quite what you expected? Well all you love about the series besides the characters are here. This RP will be run in short chapters, each one taking place over 1-3 days, sometimes even longer with time skips.
You may play as a demon hunter, or one of Arthur’s knights. Should you choose to have the same name as one of the Round Table in the original legend, you are required to be half or full demon. The only names that are not available are Guinevere, Lancelot, Galahad, and Merlin. The former 3 will appear in a future chapter, while Merlin is a key character.
Long ago there once was a Holy Kingdom, it’s knights strong and fair, and it’s king righteous and just, however this was not to be forevermore. Eventually these knights turned to pursuits of power, leading them down the path of demonic arts. Within days their beautiful and prosperous kingdom was overrun by demons as the knights bickered among one another for domination and rulership. Only one knight did not fall to the temptation, though ultimately killed, he was brought back to life by a demon. Now a knight of revenge, he slew his former comrades, leaving nothing behind. This is the legend of Lazarus, and the fall of the Holy Kingdom of Radia.
One millenia later, a descendant of this ancient kingdom will return, and create a Kingdom of Light. So it is told.
It has been 15 years since the Qliphoth Incident, a worldwide phenomenon where demons invaded the human world, it’s events centralised within Redgrave. The profession of demon hunting has risen in demand ever since the incident due to the fear of yet another demon attack. Their frequency has not changed since before the event, but the increase in demand has turned demon hunters into commonplace things. There are now larger agencies dedicated to demon hunting and even small departments in militaries around the world for it. Ultimately, many jobs have become more “guard” than “hunt”.
