Weakness: often too reckless and has a councins

02/19/2005 5:24 PM

sounds... Interesting. Definatly worth looking into.

Name: Arcinus Scott(so humans don't have to pronounce his first name) Marhin

Age: Unknown (likely to be before B.C.)

Height: 6'1

Species: Human and unknown

Appearance: Wears a cloak to conceal his features. Has brown hair, about three inches, and crystal blue, peircing eyes. Has a slight tan and usually looks as if he has seen to much of Earth and is sick of living. His only wish is to die before he sees another millenium, he's bored beyond belief. He has a lean build, but is surpisingly muscular. Carries a travellers pack, wears armor under cloak. Armor is thick enough to stop 50 caliebur rounds, due to magic inhansments.

Weapons: excalibur style Broadsword, an assortment of daggers, and a desert eagle modified with fully auto and magazines able to hold 30 rounds. 50 cal's. It's kickback is like a .22 to most people, thanks to his strength. Also his least favorite weapon- Its messy, loud, and gives away your position to him at least than his other weapons. His spells inlude healing and killing, although he cannot use them often, not to mention he is still learing them- only when he is bored out of his mind does he practice. They could backfire and kill him and everyone around him, so he tries to avoid them.

backround: a dissilusioned soldier of fortune used to fight only battles he thought were right, now hardly gives a damn. His healing and distructive powers date back to usage of the arts from pagan beliefs. His oldest memories were of fighting with his ancestors against the Greeks- But he was over 20 years old at that time. His birth and true age remains a mystery. one of his deadlier enemies had just happened upon him when wandering the state of New Jersy- Darliem, pissed off Arcinus while he was drunk and lost his left arm thanks to Marhin. Darliem is fueled by the utter hatred of all beings, he could possibly be a demon.

Tell me if you spot something you want me to change.

Name: Marcus McKechnie

a.k.a: Borne

Age: 21

Species: Human

Nationality: Scottish

Occupation: Necromancer

Appearance: He stands roughly 5'11 ft tall, with a slim and slightly toned build, possessing a wiry, natural strength. No supernatural strength, just the kind that comes from a fit and healthy life so far, (and of course several trips to the gym). Jaw length, highlighted and styled blonde hair, he is often considered a pretty boy, and has piercing blue eyes.

He prefers to wear black trousers, with a red, oriental inspired, short sleeved and fitted shirt, open half way down. Around his neck he wears a pendant with the All Seeing Eye symbol.

Weapon of choice: Although it is rarely on his person, Marcus uses a Scythe (somewhat stereotypical I know), which can be summoned at his whim. Aside from that, he has an assorted of Necromanic spells and abilites. Communicating with spirits, animating the dead, siphoning souls etc etc.


Born and raised in the capital City of Edinburgh, Marcus was always that odd child that stood at the far end of the playground, merely watching the other children with mild interest, never taking part and simply staring blankly at anyone who asked if he cared to join in the games. The uncomfortable silence and blank expressions often led others to just leave him alone, that 'freaky' kid was his common name. However, Marcus was rarely left alone as he grew up, what others could not see was that he was always surrounded, often by ghosts and restless spirits. Af first, obviously, this unnerved him, however he soon realised that the more attention he brought to the matter, telling his parents or whomever would listen, meant that these very ghosts began to recognise him as one who could see them. Many of the dead resent the living, and an oppourtunity to taunt and torment one that could see and hear them was something not to be missed.

For many years, he suffered in silence, knowing very few would give him the time of day when he rattled on about ghosts. So, he kept to himself, pretending to ignore the insults and graphic details of his death, portrayed dramatically and sadistically by his dead 'friends'. He prayed to whatever god that would hear him, that the details of his death were simply creative whims of the spirits trying to break him, and not some prophetic insight...he did not wish to die in the way they described. It was the sort of thing that Nightmares would shy from.

But, as the years prgressed, he somehow managed to.... block...the ghosts, see them when he desired to. Countless hours spent trying to do this very thing had evidently payed off.

Marcus spent a great deal of time in the Old Town of Edinburgh, where in years since passed, many thousands of the city's inhabitants died of a terrible plague, that oddly enough only struck the slums and poor folk as they were eventually bordered in to keep the disease from spreading. Those spirits are extremely hate filled for those that lived as the injusticed delivered on them left a deep and eternal scar, one that would never be healed. He learned much from them though, and in the Old Town, he discovered more about his ability and what it could lead him to. Necromancy. he term was new to him, but he soon learned the Art with a growing and insatible passion.

Little is known of him after the age of 17, only Marcus does, but it was during this lapse in time that he adopted the alias of Borne, again, for reasons only he knows.

Other facts: Not so silent anymore, as he used to be, Marcus can appear very cold and aloof, but he is not evil, despite his Necromanic powers. He is also gay, a further issue of difficulty he had to deal with as he grew up.

Height: 9"

backround: He was created by the King gaurdian gate watcher of this planet (King Yema) to do files but he got bored and ran away. He met up with a young fox demon about 300 years ago. He stayed with him until 2 years ago when he was ordered to stay with Sung Mina.(kind of like a house elf)

I'm spearheading the creation of an interdimensional RP right now and I need something to keep me busy for a while right now. So, can I enlist Orion. I promise to act like the way I act in the real world, nice and weakling in nature as to not offend anyone.
