Evelyn Rose

1464909523.bornes_cherrywine(Previously Esvera Rose)

With light blonde hair and dark blue eyes, this twenty five year old Seeker has settled down from her hunt for the Soul Stealer to help teach Edmond Cannes’s fifteen year old adopted son, Ly, the basics of guns.
Evelyn lives in a bordering country to DeFrist, named Cybil. Here, she has brought in Ly for a year or two as her student in a favor to Edmond.

In many ways she feels as if Ly is her adopted son too, and Ly feels close to her as well, often asking questions about life and other sensitive subjects.

Evelyn believes that Resonance Souls hold a higher meaning, and places a great deal of faith in prophecy and fate.

Her own Resonance Soul is called the Tortoise Eye. She has the ability to heal others and construct protective shields and barriers made from ki. She can also see which Resonant a soul is holding based on the usage of their ki.

Eventually, Evelyn gives Ly a book entitled “Resonant Philosophy,” which is the main source of information about Resonance Souls across the world. The book is actually part of a series that is updated every five years.

Tali Heartlie

This girl is adept at controlling, creating, and manipulating fire. Her hair is a fiery color and gives the appearance of fire itself. Tali’s heritage reigns from a line of mafia kings, and her Rez is seen as a testament to this.

Tali herself is a rather crude person. At only fifteen years old, she already says whatever is on her mind at the time, and is rather spoiled. Her parents gave her whatever she wanted, boyfriend included.

After being killed in chapter nine, Tali resigns herself to make her life “worth something” by stealing everything she “needs” to make a happy home with Fell.
After the boy left her, she becomes confused in her self identity, and longs to have him back- even if that means killing others or destroying anything that comes into her path.
The more often Tali dies however, the more detached from reality she becomes.

Ao the Maned Wolf

character-sheet-4Ao is an explorer. His purpose is to travel the world and write his own encyclopedia, hoping to record much of the nuances of cultures, magics, and anthropomorphic animals around the globe. He’s 30 years old.

Sean “Kaelin” Cannes

1442215096.bornes_q-kingsleyIn CC1 & 2, this character was known as Shoy / Kingsley Dantes of Monte Cristo. He is now known as Sean / Kaelin Cannes of DeFrist.

He wears a black trenchcoat and has long black hair and blue eyes.
A teacher at Sniper Academy, Kingsley goes through great lengths to ignore the arrogance and lack of respect most of his students have for him and just about everything else.

He carries with him a black umbrella, which is mostly used as a cane or walking stick, and a katana at his left hip, which rarely gets used.

To most, Kingsley seems a bit of a pushover. But the truth of the matter may be something more.

He lives with Amigo and Sim, and his favorite subject to teach is English.

Kselin’s real name is Sean Cannes, and he is the older brother to Edmond Cannes. After the completion of a mission to kill the Phoenix Soul which resulted in the attempted genocide of Nemorians, Sean was stripped of his rank, abandoned by his wife, and unable to see his son, who was five years old at the time.
Unable to stand the torment in DeFrist for his mistake, he instead became a traveler, looking for redemption through finding his son or the Soul Stealer. Along the way, he became a ki master, a talent he hides quite well.

Eventually he decided to call Dexterity his home, living with Amigo and working with Mercain in Sinico, organizing trades through the black market(such as foreign and rare technologies from Cybil). Sean helped Amigo adopt Sim, and occasionally helps raise the boy.

Edmond Cannes


In CC1 & 2, this character was known as Edmond Dantes of Monte Cristo. He is now Edmond Cannes of DeFrist.

When no one else stepped up to the plate to pursue the Phoenix in Dexterity, Edmond did. For being the only one brave enough to go, the title of The Count of DeFrist was bestowed upon him.

The man held no true political power over the land, and chose to keep out of most affairs by becoming a teacher- he trained people how to take down the Phoenix. His practice was dying, however, as the hunt for the Phoenix was slowly becoming a solitary job. About this time, a small Nemorian boy came to him, asking to be trained. The boy was Lycurgushi, and Edmond(with the help of Evelyn) practically raised him.

Edmond is also the younger brother to Sean Cannes(Also known as Kaelin). Forever in Sean’s shadow, Edmond secretly longs to prove himself to his country. To make The Coalition understand that just because the older Cannes failed does not mean the younger one will not succeed.

Quatre Bornes “Q” Lee


On the island of Mauritius, a group of Cryptozoologists discovered lycanthrope-creatures. The French Foreign Legion overtook the area and tried to create a hybrid-breeding program to produce a new type of legionnaire. This was entitled “Project Blackwoods.”
The project began with only four “children,” three of which did not live very long. After the US Military failed in an attempt to acquire the fourth child, its caretaker absconded with it to France. The caretaker, “Father,” forced the child through corrective surgeries to make it appear as human as possible. Unfortunately, due to the lycanthrope’s anatomy, important arteries were located in the tail and it still remained.
The child was named “Quatre Bornes,” and was enrolled into a military academy in which Father was employed. Quatre Bornes does not know any of this, and believes himself to be a human born with a birth defect (a tail). He never questioned it and is still in denial today.
Father had wanted Quatre Bornes, also known as “Q,” to become a strategist. Q did not want to follow this path, instead wishing to become a sniper. Father and Q’s relationship began to suffer because of this.
Eventually, a boy named Vespasien, also known as “Ves,” caught Q’s attention. Ves told Q he had a dream of moving to the USA to become a mafia lord. If Q joined him, Ves would teach him how to be a sniper. Shortly afterward, Q developed feelings for Ves and eagerly agreed to aid him.
During a fight with Father over Q wishing to attend sniper school, Q revealed that he loved boys. Enraged, Father grabbed a rapier and disfigured Q’s face with it, shouting, “If you like men, then you don’t deserve the face I made for you!”
At 18, Q and Ves decamped to the USA via ship. Ves began the French mafia in New York, Q became his translator and right hand. Although he wasn’t the best, he took to sniping rather easily, and the mafia grew beneath them.
Later, a man named Alexandre began to consult with Ves, stating a homosexual-led mafia was not very threatening. In response, Ves began publicly doting on women, eventually completely ignoring Q. Frustrated, Q left the mafia, feeling abandoned and betrayed by his now ex-boyfriend.
Q became a low brow hitman and went back into the closet, becoming a violent, sexist homophobic. If his father disowned him because he liked men, and his boyfriend abandoned him for women, then being gay must certainly be wrong, Q surmised.

Height: 6 feet
Hair: Formerly black, currently grey. Down to chinline, parted to one side.

Skin: Tanned or dark
Age: 25 – 28
Languages: French; English
Distinctive Features:
Quatre Bornes has a diagonal slash-like scar over his face from just over his left eye, across his nose, to the bottom of his right cheek. His grey hair is parted over the side, covering an eye, in effort to cover both it and the scar.
The man has two black whisker-like tattoos on either cheek, coming up from his chin line, and a golden ankh tattoo over his back.
His most defining feature, aside from his animalistic green eyes (described earlier) is his tail. It is black, the color of the hair on his head before it greyed, and goes down to his knees. It resembles the tail of a saluki, as it is feathered and slightly curled at the tip, albeit monocolored. Saluki reference.
Known Powers/Abilities:
While his vocal chords are somewhat damaged, he can still imitate many canine sounds with surprising accuracy.
His sense of smell and taste are normal or subnormal.
Hearing is exceptional, in tune to both higher and lower frequencies than a normal human.
Vision is normal to exceptional. Pays close attention to detail and movement, has wide peripheral vision, and can see further distances than humans. Quatre Bornes can also see perfectly in the dark, his green eyes sometimes glowing.
Hearing is sensitive. Prolonged noises outside the normal human hearing range induces headaches.
Vision is incredibly sensitive. Daylight causes headaches and can be potentially blinding. Sunglasses must be worn. Vision itself, while keen, has a limited color spectrum.
Due to the chronic headaches caused by sunlight, Q self-medicates by smoking and/or cigarettes.
Quatre Bornes’s tail is also extremely sensitive, having what could be called whiskers lining down the base. If stroked the right way, it can induce arousal. If pulled or tugged, it will cause extreme pain and discomfort. If cut, exsanguination is possible.
Brief History:
Born on Mauritius, Quatre Bornes “Q” Lee was quickly brought to France, and raised in military academies. Born a lycanthrope/human hybrid, treatments and surgeries were performed upon him during his childhood to make him appear human. These, like most of Q’s childhood, are not remembered. Q believes he is entirely human.
Pushed to succeed his father as a strategist, Q rebelled to become a sniper instead.After many fights over Q’s intended occupation, the last one being where he got his scar, Q left his home and ended up in the country where he is today.
He is a contracted killer, and while he may have the best shot around, he isn’t so great at the other needed talents of sniping. For this and other less-important reasons, he only accepts contracts for less than one hundred thousand dollars, which makes him a prime target to take advantage of– and people have done it before. He is a mockery to the underground business and many wetworkers consider him a fool, however he isn’t dead yet so he must be getting some business and doing something right.
Q cannot, and could never transform. At least not physically. A mental transformation can be achieved in specific conditions, usually during times of extreme pain or stress.
Q considers himself human. He dislikes his body, and the tattoos he received he thinks of as “adolescent mistakes.” By the time he reaches 24 years old, his mannerisms become more bestial. At this, he continues his denial, calling himself 100% human.
Inside a seabag, he carries everything he needs- clothes, toiletries, basic cooking wares and some canned goods. If he were stranded on a deserted island, he’d be able to survive for at least seven days (provided he found a water source, as there’s no water in his seabag). Inside the bag, at the very bottom, is 20,000USD in cash.
Other than the seabag and what’s inside, he carries a hard violin case which harbors an M40 sniper rifle with extra ammunition for it and his handguns. In addition, he owns a WASP Injector knife, despite rarely using it. Although normally on his person, his two Baretta M9s (handguns), in shoulder holsters, may also be in the violin case. He also wears a SOG Seal Knife at his hip in its sheath.
Lastly are his specially prescribed sunglasses, which never leave his person. Without them, he wouldn’t be able to see in the daylight.

Age-Related Information

Aged 20 – 23

Quatre Bornes is a confounding mix of sanity and insensibility. On the one hand, he can be cool and calculating. On the other, he can be explosive and over-reactive. He is somewhat emotionally unstable, often acting on instinct and influence rather than expertise when it comes to interpersonal communication.
Q can bury his emotions deep within himself and carry out jobs and business with unscrupulous low-lives with ease. Killing from a distance is his game, and it his ability to turn himself off that allows him to do his job with no remorse. However, when it comes to his off time, he has no friends and prefers to drive people away. A vagrant at heart, he wishes for partnership but also does not allow himself to get too connected to people as he knows he will have to leave them.
When Bornes talks of his father, he never uses possessive pronouns. Bornes’s father is not “my father” it is simply “Father” with a capital F. Father insisted Q was normal and did all he could to make Q so; Father almost disowned Q for admitting he liked boys. Q now subconsciously tries to bang every woman to win back Father’s love. Bornes needs to prove that he is not Father’s failure.
As such, he seeks out prostitutes to get the false sense of being wanted. He’ll often get drunk for an inflated ego boost. He views himself as human with a terrible genetic defect (his tail). While normally he’ll hide this defect, when he is drunk he believes himself to be “greater” than a normal human, and that what women want is really an animal– lucky for him, he is part one.
He goes to exotic fetishist clubs almost exclusively as he knows the people there will “accept” his flaws and view them as triumphs. He feels that no “normal” person could ever accept him fully, and even if they did, he’d never be able to have sex with them as he acts very bestial in bed, animal sounds and all. In a normal situation with a “normal” person, he is very self-conscious of this.

Aged 24+

The older Q gets, the worse his conditions become.

Eye sight
Starting at 24, but peaking at 25, Bornes finds even low light to be intolerable. He begins wearing his sunglasses at night and avoids day light as much as possible. He becomes strictly nocturnal around this time.

Chronic Headaches
Due to the eye sight and his sensitive hearing, he has chronic headaches. Ages 24 – 25, he tries to completely drown everything out with alcohol. By 25 – 26 he stops cold turkey and goes into withdrawal. He realizes the alcohol negatively impacts his fainting spells.

Smoking-related illnesses
In between ages 24 and 27 Q develops lung cancer and/or Emphysema due to the excessive smoking.

Animalistic Tendencies
Prior to age 24, Q growls and roars when angry but generally has full control of his more “animal” personality traits. This control begins faltering at age 24 and progressively worsens as time wears on. By 26, Q prefers to communicate via growls and grunts versus any human language.
In some roleplays, at 25+, Q will begin to spend more time with animals and may even begin communicating with them.

Character Creation History
The character beginning to resemble the Q we see today came into being in 2004. Originally a comedic character at 5’4″ and asymmetrical hair, he eventually turned into a 6ft tall mercenary with a developed background. Over 300+ art pieces exist of all the Q versions combined, as well as a published novel and custom action figure.
For the majority of Q’s history, the character had low blood pressure, producing chronic fainting spells, which he self-medicated by smoking. This aspect of the character was changed in 2015. The chronic headaches due to sunlight were increased, and that is now the main weakness of Q.

Main Character Variations

The “main” and “canon” Q is that he is a gun for hire.
Aggressively homophobic, ex-french mafia, mercenary.
The older he gets, the more he smokes and drinks.

Rather than a lycanthrope/human hybrid, Q is part hellhound. His occupation is either male body mod model or demon hunter. Something awakens within Q and he begins to hear the voice of Apollyon, telling him to kill demon hybrids that disrupt the ‘veil.’

In the story of ConstantChaotic(an old web serial I wrote), Q is a ‘Talvian’ who left his country to serve Edmond Dantes in order to kill the Phoenix Soul. The Phoenix had killed Q’s parents. Q trains with Edmond and they eventually become inseparable. Q wears a limiter and a negator so he cannot use his ki or rez (magic energy). These are microchips embedded into a dog collar Q wears at all times.
Should the collar ever be broken, it would be revealed that Q is the Soul Stealer, a Resonance Soul just as evil, if not moreso, than the Phoenix. The Soul Stealer can steal peoples resonance souls, swap them, and kill them. Q is deathly afraid of his Rez and hides from it. But once it’s free, the Soul Stealer is a killing machine.
He also has a music obsession, it being the only thing that seems to calm him down. Because of this, he frequently wears large headphones.

Lori Lentil

lori small smirk
Lori Lentil is the younger of two orphaned sons, his brother being named Yen. In a fantasy world-version of the Islamic Golden Age, Lori begins life as a perfectly normal boy who romanticizes thief culture and exploring new lands. Yen wants none of it and intends to stay in town, working as a translator and scribe. Lori eventually succumbs to wanderlust, leaving the city and coming into his own as a trickster thief.

In this world, Lori encounters many magical species and beings, one of which is the Befthar dragon. The Befthar are an incredibly rare dragon, said to have been the bridge between the spirit realm and humans, having taught shamanic practices to The First People.

As the “more civilized” world began to look down on magico-religious practices, the Befthar became hunted for the magical properties of their body parts.

Lori, ever on the search for more wealth, heard rumors of the dragon’s presence in a village and couldn’t let the opportunity go to waste. His attempt to capture the dragon was thwarted, however, and the Befthar cursed Lori.

Lori, the headstrong, narcissistic boy who never thought further than “just to have fun” was left with the burden to slowly transform into a Befthar himself. But not just any Befthar. Lori would be the very last.

Somehow, Lori didn’t let it bother him. He entombed himself in foolish comedy, continuing his trickery, thievery, and adventuring. But once the changes began to slowly come—his hair replaced by feathers, his skull sprouted horns, his eyes changed shape, and his limbs scaled over—he began to try and stop or delay the curse. Once a limb got too Beftharian for his tastes, he contracted a surgeon to remove it and replace it with a mechanical limb, instead. The things he can’t replace, he tries to use to accentuate his eccentric fashion choices.

The Befthar curse isn’t entirely bad, thankfully. The more Beftharian Lori gets, the more adept at elemental magic he becomes. At current, he can summon tiny flames.

Character Sheet
Real Name: Lori Lentil
Occupation: Trickster/Thief
Status: Traveler
Marital Status: Single
Origin: Middle East
Height: approx. 5’7”
Hair: Feathers
Build: Fit/lean
Eyes: Always covered by red goggles
Age: 20 – 28
Other: Has Mechanical arm and leg
Known Powers/Abilities:
A known and established trickster and thief. Well-versed in the art of illusion, annoyance, and separating coins from pockets. Especially talented with blow darts and various dusts. Has the ability to magically create small flames.
Vain. Overcompensates self-doubt with humor and distraction. Short attention span.
Brief History:
Born a human orphan. After succumbing to wanderlust, became a trickster/thief. After trying to capture a Befthar Dragon, Lori was cursed and now is currently (very slowly) transforming into a dragon himself.
Lori has an older brother named Yen who works as a scribe & translator in the capital city. They are not on speaking terms.
Character Variations
Lori has a few different character variations depending on the setting the character is placed in. The main/canon setting is a fantasy world based on the Islamic Golden Age.

Other versions include an alternate universe version of “Repo! The Genetic Opera,” where Lori is an unlicensed organ dealer. His dragon-like appearance is from voluntary body modifications.

In a futuristic fantasy world based in cyberpunk, Lori can be cursed by any magic user (including humans), not because he tried to steal from them, rather he simply frustrated them through sheer annoyance. In this type of setting, Lori is much the same character, but his brother, Yen, is a rich socialite who is more or less a villain.

Regardless of setting, Lori is played as either a lucid character who knows what he is doing and is simply in denial of his curse, or a mentally “off” character who obsesses with shiny things and doesn’t actually care for what they are worth.
Both personalities are equally liked.

Jiden Sparx

jiden small
Robyn and Lindsey Sparx were a lovely couple married for 20 years. When their son, Jiden, was 10 years old, Lindsey fell victim to a brain aneurysm.

Lindsey was an electrical engineer and inventor. She had made many useful innovations that spanned several industries. At the time of her death, a pair of goggles were in the prototype stage. These goggles later became Jiden’s memento of his mother, wearing them all the time. Jiden’s father, Robyn, was a biochemist and a professor at a university. When Jiden turned 18, he, too, fell victim to brain aneurysm.

Jiden followed his parents’ footsteps, being a particularly gifted child. He quickly dropped from school and went into an accelerated learning course to pick up his diploma early and enter university into his teens. He grew to like robotics and computing, and started working underground as a cracker (black hat hacker) while building battle bots on the side. It wasn’t long before he lost interest in university and began doing his own thing.

Jiden’s father never asked too many questions. He was generally proud of his son and unworried. The family was quite wealthy and there was never any push to get a job. Robyn’s time was also full– Jiden was left alone to his own devices for most of the time.

The history of aneurysms is confusing and a little suspicious, especially since Jiden inherited everything from his parents upon their death. Jiden has been touch and go with the authorities because of this, but has never actually been charged. He currently still lives in his parents’ house doing his own thing.

He doesn’t appear too saddened by the loss of his parents, but maybe that’s just his method of coping.

Character Sheet
Real name: Jiden Sparx
Aliases: “J,” “Jy” (like ‘gyroscope’), and sometimes “Jade”
Sex: Male
Gender: Androgyne
Occupation: None
Height: 5’4″ to 5’7″
Hair: long red/brown hair that goes down to mid-back.
Age: 18 – 25
Favorite color: green
Personality: easy-going, laid back, can be a bit of a clown. He is almost always in a good mood, smiling or owning a bit of a smirk. He will often downplay his intelligence, playing the dumb fool or pretending to be a klutz in order to fit in better with those around him.
Distinctive features: always wears green goggles; long blue tribal tattoo that spreads from right shoulder down the arm to the wrist.
Hobbies: building, maintaining, and dueling battle bots; hacking and cracking; electrical engineering.
Brief history:
Kid genius. Mother died when Jy was 10, father when he was 18. Jiden inherited everything. He claims to be an inventor but “hasn’t had any good ideas yet.”
The goggles are a memento of his mother and he wears them constantly. They are a prototype invention of his mother’s. They are capable of taking several readings on equipment just by looking at them. Their most common use is as a multimeter.

Other Information

Jy is a cyberpunk character and is open-ended to take advantage of almost any roleplay in that genre. Because of this, there will naturally be several small variations. His gender rarely comes up, and his sexual orientation varies, although he is usually asexual. I consider Jiden Sparx my persona.

My two favorite story arcs are these:
– Jy is studying full-time in University. A childhood friend drops on his doorstep after she was thrown out due to her mental illness. While Jiden takes care of her, she tries desperately to seduce him. Only problem is that Jy is 100% gay and taken. His boyfriend is out of town and he doesn’t want his friend to know his orientation.

– Jy is eating breakfast with his father (Robyn) when he suddenly falls dead on the table. Too shocked to do anything, Jiden simply leaves and tries to pretend it never happened. Later that day, Delilah (Deli), Robyn’s intern, stops by the house. They both are at the wrong place at the wrong time, and find themselves the prime suspects of Robyn’s murder.

RP/Writing Sample

Last RP Story

Deliliah (Deli) is a 20 year old intern to the biochemist Robyn Sparx, father of Jiden (Jy), an eighteen year old electronics wizkid. One day, Robyn mysteriously dies — thought to be by spontaneous brain aneurysm, same as Jiden’s mother several years prior.Everyone’s in the wrong place at the wrong time, and all signs point to Jy and Deli being murderers. Even worse, Jy now has suspicious ties to a group of thought to-be international spies.

What now?

Random Post From Last RP

Jiden listened to her, and gave a small smirk afterward, forcing a breathy “heh.””Jiden,” he said later.
Jiden was normally pretty easygoing. Either immersed in his gadgetry or cracking some joke with a smile on his face. Given his situation — father completely overloaded with work and Jiden left to entertain himself — he had seemed to adapt fairly well and no one ever really wondered about him.

In truth, he was usually praised as being some sort of electrical genius, taking after his mother and bound to come up with something amazing eventually. For that reason, he didn’t bother with school. He’d tried it, but like any smart kid, had grown bored and about the age of ten he took the test for his GED and kept to himself in his lab since. Occasionally he’d participate in some engineer forums. He’d made some headway in the hobby battle robots scene, but didn’t really fully apply himself anywhere too heavily. Robyn didn’t want Jiden to entirely miss out on a “real” childhood, so had never forced his son to go get a job or jump start adult life. Realistically speaking, they had all the money they could’ve wanted anyway.

It was all this that came through Jiden’s mind. It had only been about an hour a go that he was eating cereal in the kitchen when his father came up to make himself sandwich. The man had sat down to eat it in his lab coat, asked how J’s day was going and then promptly passed out on the table.

Jiden had turned around and dropped everything, rushing over. He didn’t know what to do at first, or what had happened. But when the eighteen year old checked for breath or a heartbeat, there was nothing. Jiden grabbed a defibrillator and attempted to resurrect his father, but blood came out of his ears after a few tries and Jiden knew his father was gone.

It had been sudden, unexpected, completely uncalled for…
His father had been taken away just like his mother had when he was six.
Jiden had no idea what to do. Something snapped in his brain and he simply went back downstairs into the lab and tried to pretend it had never happened.
He didn’t want to look at it. He didn’t want to think about it.

Maybe if he ignored it, it would go away.
Every fiber of his being knew it wouldn’t, but he still hoped anyway. Some sort of teenaged resolve stuck in him. He was stubborn, he didn’t want to believe he was suddenly alone in the world with no one to look after him.

But now Robyn Sparx’s intern was trying to get him to go up there to the kitchen, to his father, to ruin everything. To absolve him of his unique fantasy that everything was okay.

“Were you and him… You know…?” He looked at his numb hand. “…In love?”
