"What's your favorite scary movie...?"
Hey everyone! Once again, I appreciate the (very) surprising amount of positive reception I've gotten to AMDWD! It's not the most original idea in the world(it's basically the fandom version of 'the suicide squad') but I think with the cast we've gotten so far, it's going to be a ton of fun! For that reason, I've made this thread so we can basically bullshit here/re-post CSes and talk about the RP once it finally kicks off(i.e once I get at most maybe 1-2 more people(?) and I get time to put the IC thread up) This way it also saves the interest thread from being filled up with non-'yeah I'm down!' posts!
For everyone who's posted a CS in the interest thread, just re-post em here and I'll do the same!
Character Name: Hei
Motivation/Fatal Trigger : Since these are my PCs, I'll keep things a little closer to the chest/let you guys figure this out as the RP goes on!~
World Origin: (Darker than Black)
Powers and skills: Molecular/Electricity Manipulation: Hei possesses the ability to generate and discharge electricity through conductive media (i.e. he cannot discharge it through air or concrete) at sufficiently high amounts to kill grown men or short out a building's electrical systems. He has shown masterful efficiency with this power, being able to channel electrical currents through a wire and into his knife. This power is far more than simply releasing electric shocks, as he can alter matter on the quantum level, transform integral particles on the quantum level, and even generate special particle luminance; meaning he is able to change molecules similar to how humans are changed into contractors making it one of, if not, the strongest and most coveted powers known as it is the only ability capable of altering gate particles at will. Buuuut for the sake of keeping things balanced/cutting the head off any potential 'power-scaling' debates, he'll predominately just be using it to manipulate electricity!
-A Mask. Nothing special really, just helps to hide his identity when out on jobs.
-His trademark weapon is a knife on a metal wire, which he uses as an offensive weapon, a grappling hook, or as a conduit through which to discharge his electricity.
-In addition to using it with his knife, Hei also uses his wire with a carabiner attached to the end, which allows the wire to anchor to any object that it wraps around. This is also used to wrap around enemies necks and allows Hei to deliver lethal shocks.
-Hei's long black trench coat is bullet proof (often used as a shield), and is shown to be made out of a material that can conduct electricity.
-To aid in infiltrating a building, Hei has made use of a collapsible crossbow to fire a rope large distances. He keeps the crossbow in a satchel
Background: Hei is what's known as a contractor: a human who's gained superhuman abilities. They tend to look like everyone else but unlike most humans you might encounter in day to day life, contractors are almost entirely sociopathic, preferring to focus solely on tasks that'll benefit them the most and what needs to be done to accomplish said goal. Regardless of what decisions may have to be made in the process to reach the result they're hoping for. But their power comes with a cost known as an Obeisance, which is an often bizarre, obsessive compulsive "payment" for the use of their powers. Some have to smoke cigarettes after every use of their power, others need to organize rocks in a certain way, etc. Hei is one of the few contractors who doesn't need to pay a price for his powers. Something he's used to great effectiveness as a mercenary under the employ of the shadowy organization known only as The Syndicate.
To his enemies, he's the 'Black Reaper'. To the fellow contractors he often encounters he's known as BK-201.
To the people who are unaware of the killer they live next to? He's just nice timid Li Shengshun.
Weaknesses: Unlike most Contractors who can only work rationally for the most of their life, Hei sometimes acts on his emotions, sometimes getting him in more trouble than he'd have otherwise.
Character Name: Lady Nagant
Age: Mid-late 30s.
Motivation/Fatal Trigger : Same thing with Hei, would rather keep this to be revealed IC through conversing.
World Origin: (My Hero Academia)
Powers and skills: Molecular/Electricity Manipulation:
With this Quirk, Lady Nagant can protrude and retract a rifle gun from her right elbow. She bends her elbow up so that her hand is to her shoulder and opens a cavity in her elbow, from which the rifle comes out of. The rifle seems to be made out of organic matter.
She can also manifest a tendril of flesh from her arm that she can curl up and make act as rifle scope, allowing her to make more precise shots if needed. Another attribute of her gun is that she can dramatically increase its power output, causing the gun to expand and bulge out. This greatly increases the velocity of her shots, though it does run the risk of jamming her gun. The 'ammo' is her hair which she can pull off and mold similar to epoxy clay. They can be formed into different types of bullets from hollow points to curving bullets. As payment for her services, she was also gifted with the second quirk ability of 'Air Walk' which allows her to levitate.
Aside from her boots? She doesn't seem to need to have any need to 'carry' equipment on her. Her body IS the equipment.
Background: As a child, it's everyone's dream to be a hero. Such was the case with a majority of the population that in elementray school classrooms, you'd barely get any who'd want to do anything BUT try out for hero exams. Most try, those who succeed might not end up in the daily papers but they try to help out where they can. One such example to this rule was a young girl who'd soon grow up to be known as 'Lady Nagant.' Brighteyed and optimistic, she eagerly accepted an invitation offered by the Hero Public Safety Committee. She'd been brought in hoping that she'd save lives as many of the heroes she'd seen on the streets and on the TV doing.
She was wrong.
Taking advantage of her skill with her 'Rifle' quirk, Nagant was sent on missions to take out targets that were deemed a threat by the Agency. Some were planning acts on the level of terrorism while others were murdered before they could even start thinking of a plan. Killing the chicken before it even has time to hatch the egg so to speak. Over the years this seemingly endless charade of taking lives while having to smile for the camera and the fans who adored you wore at her psyche. Until finally it all came to a head as the Comission's President attempted to inform Nagant of her next mission. Two heroes who were taking advantage of the protection/the influence that the Comission gave them and they needed to be dealt with.
She stood steadfast and continued to refuse.
There was a death that night.
Security rushed into the room as Nagant stood over the president's body, the barrel of her rifle still smoking.
She....just couldn't do it anymore.....
Weaknesses: Her rifle CAN be broken leaving her both down:
-Her one and only weapon
-An entire limb.
She's also obviously much more adapt at long-range combat than CQC.
Character Name: Guzma
Motivation/Fatal Trigger : Well.....Guzma's a bit of a special case....
World Origin: (Pokemon)
Powers and skills: Guzma himself isn't anything too special. But look below at equipment for his team!
Guzma was involved in an incident involving his Island Kahuna and Kukui: Kukui befriended Guzma during his time as a student in the Pokémon School. He had a battle with him, and won that battle, and commented that Guzma could do well if he would befriend his Golisopod. Elsewhere, Guzma was deeply frustrated that he could not defeat Professor Kukui, considering both Kukui and Guzma were Hala's apprentices. Unfortunately, Guzma began to rebel after rejecting the traditions of Alola region like Kahuna Trials and Island Challenges, as well as the international tournament leagues. Hala shook his head, while Kukui tried to calm Guzma down. Guzma slapped Kukui's hand and refused, and claimed he would get stronger on his own without the need Z-Rings or Z-Crystals and he ran away. This tragedy caused both Hala and Kukui to blame themselves for not being there to support Guzma for the righteousness path.
Ever since he ran away from Hala and Professor Kukui, Guzma was amassing outcasts and misfits, who shared similar feelings with him. Guzma gave his Team Skull subordinates a home on Ula'ula Island, where the grunts cheered for him, viewing him as an idol. Guzma proclaimed he was undefeatable, but in truth, he simply chose the fights he knew he would win.
Weaknesses: Guzma's really not much worth talking about without his Pokemon.
