Bloodlines: Last Hope




Demons, humanity's ancient and persistent foe. One hellbent on controlling and dominating humanity. For centuries it was up to various groups and holy orders to defend humanity from this threat over the centuries. A war that has seen both success and failure. The greatest of these victories was the death of the Demon king Thozath and most of his legions. Though the demons still remained, they were no longer as numerous as they were before, and the war with demonkind went underground. With demons beginning to operate in the shadows and strike unsuspecting humans. Which the strongest of the human orders. The Wardens of Light have taken up the task of hunting down these demons wherever they could be found.

But, what of the failures, you might ask. However, there have been setbacks over the centuries in this war. The two worse of all were the enslavement of the Sagian and the deaths of the Clan Voi. The Sagian a race that once lived and coexisted with humanity in the past. But, sometime after the death of Thozath, one of his lieutenants, Urkenith devised a plan to strengthen the demon horde by enslaving the Sagian. Who were both stronger and more durable than humans. By tricks and lies, Urkenith manipulated the Sagion leaders and used the last traces of Thozath's blood in a ritual that bounded the Sagians to the demon horde. No one, not even the mighty Wardens, could save the Sagions from their cruel fate. For only Clan Voi were the only ones that could reverse such a ritual, for they were the descendants of the ancient god Voi. His blood flows in their veins and granted them unique magics that would be the only thing that could free the Sagions. But, they were heavily weakened after Thozath's death as many of their numbers died during the battle and Urkenith directed what demons remained to hunt them down. No one was spared, and soon the once great clan was wiped out with their own hope of being free gone. Most Sagion turned to despair and were now forced to serve the demons that they once fought against.

But, unknown to all, Clan Voi did not die out as most thought. For a single baby had survived the extermination and would be found by a kind couple. Unaware of his heritage and powers, this baby would grow up and later foster children. Continuing the bloodline and the hidden hope that the Sagion could be free once again.

Fast-forward to the present of 2024. Demons, magic, the Wardens, and most of the past have been faded into legend and myth. The war continuing albeit from behind the scenes. For the most part, people of today have to worry about mundane problems. But, for a group of college students in Philadelphia, they will see a glimpse of not only this war but of the power that lies in their veins. The power of Voi which will make them both the most coveted for the Wardens and the most wanted by the demons. Whenever they realize their power and undo the ritual that binds the Sagion or fall to the demons is up to the actions of these students.

Rules:
1. Expected to follow standard site rules
2. No godmodding or powergaming or etc...
3. No OP characters
4. A max of two characters
5. Minimum of two paragraphs
6. No Possession, Reanimation, Reincarnation, or Resurrection powers


Overview:

Hello and welcome to this rp. So in this rp we will be playing as college students that are descendants of the ancient god Voi who will find themselves caught up in the conflict between humanity and demons. Where their unique powers will manifest and they will have the chance to save the Sagian from their enslavement by demons. While also being highly wanted by said demons that want to stop that from happening.

The rp will start in Philadelphia where the players will be enrolled at the prestigious Benjamin Franklin University. Where from here, they will begin their journey of learning how to use their soul based powers and free the Sagion from demon control. Along with learning more about their forebears and Voi himself. Which will take them across the world and to hidden places. As long as they can survive being hunted by the demon horde.

Powers:

While everyone will generally have the same powers, being soul based as Clan Voi members have the ability to use magic by drawing power from their souls. Granting them unique powers but, at cost of their health. For using their powers causes them to grow tired and if used too much. Then they can cause harm to themselves and even death in some cases.

As for what powers a Clan Voi member has, the more generic powers such as launching a soul energy bolt at a target or deploying a shield made from soul energy. So you can be creative with this as along it is not overpowered or strays away from being soul-based. Even mold your char to be a certain role, like tank, dps, or healer/support.

As for the unique powers a Clan Voi member has, here are three powers that all Clan Voi members have:

Soul Sight: When used it grants its user to see people's souls and to see through walls. Along with being able to see if a person is being possessed by a demon or otherwise. Or even track down a person's soul if skilled enough. The only downside is that when in use and regardless of the user's eye color. Their eyes will glow a bright blue for as long as they are using soul sight.

Exorcism: Though there are other ways to exorcise an entity from its host. members of Clan Voi magic tend to be more powerful and more efficient than most. Which in conjunction with soul sight. A user can exorcise an entity such as a demon from its host, sometimes by literally reaching into the host and ripping out the entity by force.

Soul Awareness: A more passive ability, this power lets someone detect the presence of lost souls in a short area. Such as ghosts or phantoms. Being able to communicate with them and help them along to the afterlife. Either peacefully or by force.

That is it and if you have any questions or need some help. Just ask and here is the character sheet.

Name: Ella Blackheart

Gender: female

Age:19

Appearance: 5'1 she is slightly muscular but is weak. Has scars over her body from a tough childhood. Her body is slightly curved she is skinny but she can be an amazing girl her hair is blond but when in the sun the tips appear to turn golden blond. Her eyes are a light brown and when in sun they appear to have golden flexes in them.
Nationality: American, French, and German

Personality: Ella is very passionate about many things, and especially so with the people she loves. When she cares for someone, she cares for them deeply and has experienced enough loss in her life to never want to feel it again. Ella's passionate nature also often extends to her interests, including books, sweets, and music. Ella can often be called rude or even evil, but she obviously loves her homeland and friends very much.
Ella feels things both strongly and deeply. While she is often teasing, witty, and carefree when she is happy, Ella's most immediate reaction when angry or sad is to channel her darker emotions into a barely-contained rage or killing calm. This gets her into trouble more often than not,
Ella also has a strong moral compass. Though she often tries to suppress the memories of her tumultuous past, her experiences have shaped her into the woman she is, and that is a woman who does not tolerate injustices.

Soul Powers: (Will figure out)

Skills: Self Management- rarely likes to have help, Able to think through tough situations, Resilient, Can be a good leader but doesn't show it, and able to help others and work in groups although rare.

Personal Belongings: Knives (unless in class), books, a locket, a gun, and a motorcycle
Background: Ella's past is pretty rough. Growing up as a kid on multiple occasions she was bullied and harmed. Her own mother and father would abuse her and call her "it" instead of treating her like a human for in her world anything other than a human was a disgrace. She does not look to her mom and dad as her parents for she ran away at 14 her brother along with her but he left her to die.

Relationships: Ella's family abandoned her, she has no family and no friends.

Question about the soul powers- from the premise, it seems that the characters will be learning about/how to use their powers throughout the RP, but at the start of the RP are they aware that they have their powers/have knowledge on how to use them? Or are we pre-emptively listing the powers they will learn?

Not the GM but I'm pretty sure we won't know them right away and its what we learn.

No, your chars would not know of their powers out the gate. Once their power awakens then they will learn how to use their powers. So yes, you are pre-emptively listing the powers they will learn.

I know you are not done, but, I wanted to list some things about the app. Like could you explain how she ended enrolling at Benjamin Franklin University? Since running from home and being left for dead at 14, leaves questions on how she survived up to being 19 and enrolling at a university.

He is fine, accepted

Rough character idea



So his soul powers would not work, Telekinesis is not something he would know/learn and Exorcist is something everyone can do.

Started on this guy last night, finished him after waking up- I hope the ideas didn't get too muddled between sittings

So I did start working on a character sheet, but holiday season busyness has caught up with me. I probably won't have a chance to finish the sheet until boxing day. Hopefully that won't delay the RP.

Okay, this turned out differently than I expected, so the character I was thinking of trying out doesn't really work here. But that's okay, because I have like a million characters, and this other one fits rather well.

A good cs overall, but, Distortion. How exactly does it tie into being soul based?

Ah, beggin' your pardon. I'll add to the description to make it more clear, but it works out to this: Her energy is projecting out, grabbing light and sound, and then giving it a twist so it's harmful to the senses. If she's in contact with you, she has a clear line to you yourself and can distort your energy that way.

Ah, okay, well then accepted in that case.

Also, something that has been on my mind. Does anyone here want a discord? I will make one if enough people want one.

Edited, and I will re-post in characters shortly.

It'd be easy enough for you to get a channel for OOC discussion on Stuff's server.
