Name: Seth
Pantheon: Egyptian god of war, desert, storms, foreign lands and chaos
Age: Older then dirt
Gender: Male

Weapon: Flay- a tool used to harvest grain from the floodplain. This particular one is kinda, y'know, powerful
Egyptian scimitar- Crescent shaped sword used by the first Ejyptian armies. Again, powerful

Steed: He's a god, he can just go where he wants in like, two seconds.

Appearance: 6'4 heavily muscled. Well tanned (think egypt people) His head is replaced by an indeterminable animal. some see in it the head of an aardvark.

Acoutrements: Nope.

History: During the 3rd millenium BCE Seth replaced Horus as the tutelary deity of the pharaohs, but the story of Osiris' murder gained currency and Horus was restored to his original status. The war that followed lasted eighty years, during which Seth tore out Horus' left eye and Horus tore off Seth's foreleg and testicles. Eventually, Horus emerged victorious, or was deemed the victor by the council of the gods, and thus became the rightful ruler of the kingdoms of Lower and Upper Egypt. Seth was forced to return the eye of Horus and was either castrated or killed.
OK?

Here's my char, hope she's ok. Changed her profile around a tad, found a really hand encyclopedia of mythology: [LINK]


Name: Kazuki Yamito

Pantheon: Japanese

Age: 1, 463

Gender: Female

Weapon: Katana usually, though she can use many other weapons too.

Powers and Magic: Some wind and storm magic, wielded through her katana.

Steed/Riding Animal: Usually just walks, or blows herself there.

Appearance: Long black hair, silver-grey eyes, wears feudal-era clothing. Look like she walked out of a samurai show.

Accoutraments/ Magical Trinketts: Bag of junk, presumably magical, given to her by the god Kaze-no-Kami, has no idea how to use it. Rosary around her neck, reason she's still alive. (see below)

History:

Kazuki was the daughter of a lord in feudal-era japan. When she was little, on of her older brothers taught her sword and weaponry, which she kept practicing as she grew older.

When she was only fourteen, her father engaged her to be married to an old, cruel lord. Kazuki killed him on the night they were to be wed, and fled into the mountains. She hid in a shrine from her father's samurai, until they finally caught up to her.

The girl was desperate, and threatened to kill an old priestess in the shrine unless the samurai let her go free. The priestess threw a necklace of prayer beads around her neck, and Kazuki was turned into stone as punishment by the gods.

Kazuki's soul was unable to pass on for her crimes, and was forced to guard the shrine for many centuries. When the "nega-verse" army appeared, the god of the shrine, Kaze-no-Kami, god of storms and wind, made an agreement with Kazuki that if she served the gods against the attackers, she would be freed.

Name: Zeus Donum

Pantheon: Greek

Gender: M

Weapon: A longsword that can be immolated at will. Can cut through any non-magical object, and some magical ones.

Power and Magic: While wielding his sword, he can merge it with his arm. He can summon lightning bolts into his hand 5 times/day. He has unhuman strength.

Steed/Riding Animal: A pegasus (can tire)

Appearance: A 5'6" old man with white hair and milky eyes. He appears very weak and looks like he is ready to die. He leans on his cane, coughing and sputtering. In battle, his glazed eyes turn a bright red. His face becomes a snarling visage, not unlike that of a beast.

Accoutermants/Magical Trinketts: His robes can hold and hide any of his items he carries with him.

History: Donum was born in a temple of Aphrodite in the city of Athens. He grew up like any other child. He was particularly interested in the study of the pantheon. When he turned twenty-one, he had a dream, a prophecy. He saw the threat that would come, but not for hundreds of years. He saw that the greecian pantheon, as well as the barbarians' gods preparing for this attack. He also saw himself, champion of the greek pantheon. He never saw anything to do with his prophecy until he turned 76. Lying on his deathbed, he remembered his prophecy. He never died, but got up and left his house and went over to the temple of Zeus. He prayed for answers to the prophecy, when he had a strange urge. He got up and stopped praying and moved around to the back of the statue of Zeus. There he saw a sword, some robes, and a nnote on top. The note told him about the prophecy and his involvement. When he left the temple, his pegasus came down from the heavens to serve as his steed. That is also when he received his strength and lightning summoning ability.

Demitrex
05/18/2005 5:17 PM

Name: Eiliv Niets Arkin

Pantheon: Norse

Age: 2,168 (Spirit who has been living in The hall of the slain, Valhalla)

Gender: Male

Weapon: Mjollnir, the great hammer of Thor (lightning imbued, and returns to hand when thrown. Ranged and melee all in one, oh yeah! )

Powers and Magic: ~The ability to assume several animal forms (taught to him by Loki).
~Has learned magic to enhance physical attributes to aid in battle over the millenia.
~Innate judgement - after a couple millenia of combat, can innately judge physical characteristics and capabilities of humanoids.Also other creatures but not nearly as well
~Supernatural berserk- lets just say it's not pretty to really strike a nerve!

Steed/Riding Animal: Sleipnir, the eight legged mount of Odin, and son of Loki. Gallops across land, water, and air. (will not overuse the air part, so I won't go flying around all over, lets say his powers are diminished in that respect when we leave earth.)

Appearance: Large man, standing at 6'8", muscles all over his body built and toned over many many years of near constant combat. Short blond hair covers his head, always rather spikey, his hair about 1 1/2" long. He has a thick goatee, not long, but very thick and it is a different shade of color than the hair on his head, being more of a dirty blond. Calculating royal blue eyes, small gray cracks in the iris. Fair skin, his well built and toned muscles easy to see.

Studded leather armor protects his torso, with bracers and shin guards for his arms and legs. He wears a bear skin instead of a cloak or jacket, only the pelt and his dark red and black clothing covering him where the leather does not.

Accoutraments/ Magical Trinketts:~ An amulet that allows the Gods of his culture to tell his physical and mental condition.
~Iron gauntlet on his right hand, gives him unnatural aim and distance while throwing Mjollnir, worn also in respect for Thor's style with the hammer.
~Ring that can store limited number of spells and incantations for instant use in a tight situation. (to recharge, must spend three times the normal casting time for all spells imbued)
~ A waterskin that never runs out of the most beautiful, sparkling, tasty water ever!
~A cornucopia that never runs out of awesomely delicious, Valhalla worthy, food.
~A horned viking helmet that will transport him back to Valhalla should he be killed. He will never be able to leave again if this happens.

History: Born into the world as Bo Brand, meaning commanding sword blade, he grew up in a simple family part of a clan of mountain dwellers. He spent a majority of his youth herding goats and sheep, spending his free time practicing with his grandfather's warhammer. Bo grew up and left his home, his three brothers being more than enough help, and joined a group of vikings from his region. Most of his late teen years and early twenties were spent pillaging and sacking, his skill with the warhammer aiding him in becoming a better than average fighter. He was not by any means, however, heroic in any sense. But upon his death at the age of 27, killed by a rival clan's chief in a duel, Bo was accepted with open arms into the halls of Valhalla.

Bo had lived up to expectations of everyone in Valhalla, although people were suprised by his choice of weapon in life, when he did not choose the weapon for which he was named. This fact was inconsequential, and he began his combat in Valhalla, never lasting more than halfway through the battles. But it was a good life, combat until death, then feasting until combat once again.

As the years went by, then the decades, and finally a century, Bo had become increasingly efficient in his combat, learning and adapting to the styles of all his opponents. By the end of his second centure, Bo could last almost to the end of the battles, and in less than half a century, had claimed the victory over all others in the combat of Valhalla. But his prowess didn't stop there, he continued to improve and quickly became a nearly unstoppable force, never finding one on one fights anymore and always coming across groups of enemies.

His accomplishments did not go unnoticed by the Aesir and soon Thor entered the combat of Valhalla under the guise of a simple man. At the end of one of the countless battles, it was only Thor and an unsuspecting Bo. A great battle followed the initial face off, rocking the ground and walls of all Valhalla. In the end Thor unleashed all of his power and finished Bo. Astounded by Bo's power, and the odd choice of his weapon compared to his name, Odin renamed the man Eiliv Niets Arkin, meaning Immortal Champion, The eternal King's son.

Many more centuries went by before the war with the beings beyond the world. It was decided that Eiliv was to be sent to destroy the enemies. Bearing the gifts of his gods, Eiliv was on his way, prepared for the battle with new enemies.

Thanks :) I did a bit of research and I'll probably end up doin more, I know for a fact that I'm gonna post his cursing and what not in norwegian :P. Always nice to know that I do a good job. Although I gotta say preparing my character for the thread thats gonna get started based on the thread in the Ideas and Interests forums "Ground Breaking Idea... I hope" took me a couple hours to research and figure out. I thought he was pretty original.

P.S. I like your character to ( didn't post that the first time round cuz I forgot which one was yours hehe) The story about the priest and the punishment is pretty cool. All my guy did was fight alot :(

It shouldn't be too big a deal, as long as their powers on earth are diminished atleast slightly when we assault the enemies, not too terribly much, but maybe no summoning or taking control of entire armies :P that would be kinda boring if every army raised against us was suddenly a bunch of allies. I'm looking forward to crushing some skulls!

Oh, but i so do love the summoning! ;)

Yeah, I was thinking that since Taoism isn't being as practiced as Islamic and other religions such as Christianity, his powers have been reduced somewhat. Ok, alot.

Actually, if you want to get technical, Kazuki would probably be somewhat pale, since pale skin was greatly valued by japanese nobility in the feudal era.

Demeter only had one child, Persephone, actually. I'd recommend Hera or Aphrodite, perhaps. *shrug* It's up to you.
