So the chase began, the spirit jumping from one body to the next of the same blood line as the years passed, always hiding from the Maldito family that grew in number and wealth over the years. More members joined to have a chance at capturing and harnessing the spirits natural raw power. It wasn't until the time of King Henry VIII that a noble night saw the murder of a host, and saw the spirit rise from its corpse around several Maldito family members. Acting on valor and courage, the knight fought off and killed each family member until the spirit was left alone with the brave night. As a token of gratitude, the spirit summoned enough energy and "synced" its knowledge of its life and the Maldito family, the information was a lot for the knight, but he knelt and drove his sword into the ground, pledging to always protect the spirit and whatever host it may reside in at the time. This was the birth of the Crimson Guard Family. Warriors, magicians and average humans guarding the secret of the spirit and protecting the host while the Maldito Family continued their hunt for ultimate power. As time passed, members on both families have also, but there are some who still hold a high place, gaining immortality through means of magic or sacrifices to continue their secret war of destroying or protecting the spirit with powers unmeasurable by science or man. The Maldito family and Crimson Guard continue to battle their war in the shadows, not all the time are the Crimson Guard successful in protecting the spirit. The same with the Maldito family, still unable to capture the spirit with great power before it flees or their members are attacked by the Crimson Guard, now that times have changed and positions have shifted, it has become more of a dangerous battle with science and technology advancing to their peek.
The time is current, the spirit's new host is an orphaned boy who attends school and lives his life out normally, but the poor boy is now in the crossfires of an ancient battle for the being inside of his body. He is the last of the original family bloodline since Egyptian times, and for only being a child, he is the last place the spirit can remain dormant. For if he dies, the spirit cannot jump to another host to hide inside, and will be reviled in plain sight and the powers of the original Big Bang shall be released if used for dark purposes. The years have passed and even members of the Crimson Guard are wavering from their original mission, but the elder members remember the promise they made, and they plan of keeping it to save their world from utter destruction.
Alright, my first RPG with the help of some awesome members, lets make this a lasting and exciting one. The current time for this RPG is now, our time, 2011. So any means of technology can be used by any member, the location will be given when we start this as well. As a side note, NO FAMILY MEMBER KNOWS THE IDENTITY OF THE OTHER. To further explain, each family member has a seal on their body, a tattoo of their seal, it will alert them when the spirit or another member of the opposite family is near. The symbols for each family member will be on the first post when this makes it to the Theater section, I'm positive members will like their personal family symbols. I would like to get at least 5 dedicated posters (including myself) for this, a fair amount on both families and then the Carrier. Since its set in current times, I'd like the family members to be hidden in regular job roles (cops, teachers, students, business executives, etc), but still faithful to their duties. You can be a rich tyrant, superstar singer, or ever a commoner going about their lives. So be creative :D
Name: (Self Explanitory)
Age: (Since some members are immortal, give a general age or timeline when you were welcomed into the family)
Family: (Which do you belong to? The Maldito Family or Crimson Guard?)
Occupation: (Current job to hide yourself from the other family member and carrier. Teacher? Construction worker? Stock Broker? Student? anything goes)
Bio: (Share a little bit about your character, their past history with the Crimson Guard or Maldito family, if they've lived for centuries or even this decade or the next, let us know)
Abilities/Powers: (Let's not be too X-Men, anime gun ho. Have a general idea but remember you are limited. Are you a psychic that can only levitate or read peoples minds? A super strength fighter with the inability to swim? Or even a magic user that has physical limits, your character is your own creation, but lets be level with one another.)
Weakness: (As stated above: Can't swim? Afraid of heights? Not a social butterfly? Clostrophobic? We love em all !!)
Weapons: (If you choose to have one, always optional)
I will be playing the role for the current Carrier of the Spirit, the last of the bloodline. I already have two spots reserved for Crimson Guard Members, but if we get a lot of posters then hey add on or join the other family. Hope to see some enthused posters for this one :D Happy Postings!
