Instruments of Life

Life would be nothing without sound, beauty, and music.
The world needs the basic need of song to
make people smile, laugh, and cry. Far out in the universe
a world revolves around music. Not just for
entertainment, but to fight and live.

The world is split up into different districts,
each with there own power to control
with the instrument designated to that district.

Trumpet = Fire District

Flute = Air District

Violin = Water District

Small Snare = Earth District

The world was at peace after years of war.
The fighting was terrible and many people believed they
should rid the world of teaching the powers to the newer generations.
It was a hard choose that had lots of controversy.
When it was finally revealed how it would be handled
many people didn't think it was enough.

Each District would make a temple to keep one
powerful instrument in each one.
Music would forever be gone from the world, and only the
monks in the temples could teach a choosen
child from each District.

The first few years were quiet with no music the world
was boring and without life. That was when the shadows
began to attack villages. It would seem
the music that was so precise to the world
was what had kept a great evil trapped within the world
and as long as the music played it would stay locked away,
but now the world played no more and the evil
escape and is now out for revenge for being trapped for
thousands of years.

Now with the help of those who have the power to
control the elements with their amazing instruments.
They must fight this evil and put it back within the planet.
If they can not do so
the world is doomed to be destroyed by the evil
that had once tried before.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Layman's Terms: Basicly the planet was kept in balance from a great evil by playing the different tones of life. When war broke out using the powers, many were scare it would happen again after they ended. So they stopped playing, except for the choosen few. Now that the evil has returned from when the planet was made, the choosen must work together to rid the planet of the evil again.

Mine

Name: Tamie Red

Age: 19

Gender: Female

Appearance: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a9/BigMommaKayla/Kayle.jpg

District: Fire

Instrument: Trumpet

Bio: Tamie was choosen when she turned tow years old. The monks came and took her from her home to teach her for as long as they could. They knew she would be a prodigy for she was the daughter of the ruler of the District. It was true as well. She was a prodigy with the trumpet and learned many tunes quickly in the first few years. When she turned six she learned her first Power Song. She could now summon lava from the ground when she needed to. Tamie had to perfect everything before she learned more.

After a few more years Tami turned 16 and learned three more songs. One to summon a fire creature that was fast and fought well. The next one she played could make fire balls. The last one she could play summons a dragon who could fly and breathe fire. It was a hard test to pass with three songs, but Tamie did well.

On Tamie's 18th birthday she learned her last great song. The hardest one to play, but her strongest one. The song that would turn her to fire and have lots of power in that form. She wasn't allowed to play this song more that three times, for it was very dangerous and could harm anyone near to her.

That same year the evil arrived and on her 19th birthday Tamie was sent out to find the others and to help stop the threat of their world.​

In my castle, plotting your demise
So I guess that genetics rp is dead? Too bad. I want to use my character. It is REALLY hard to make this one good. Air and Wind are the same thing. So, wtf?

Name: Kelpie Bow
Age: 21
Gender: Female
Appearance: http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c34/Beyblader2/normal_osaejk.jpg
District: Water
Instrument: Violin
Bio: To be true to the girl, Kelpie never wanted to be the chosen one. A simple life was all she asked for. And yet, no one cared. She disliked all the attention and love she received. It made her feel somewhat empty. She only saw herself as a tool that the monks used to combat evil. Kelpie knew she was much more, but who would stop to listen?

Kelpie wasn't horrible with her violin. In fact, she was a natural. It was just that she disliked the songs the monks tried to make her play. They were boring, dull, and lacked anything interesting. So, she started to write her own songs. Songs that flowed like water itself. The first song she wrote somehow controlled water around her to attack others like whips. She dubbed this song Scourge.

The next song Kelpie wrote turned water into devilish horses that could trample and buck and drown the enemy with its own form. Obviously, she called it Kelpie's Song. The third song she wrote turned water into ice, calling it Diamond Water. The next song was called The Maelstrom, which turned water in the area into a giant whirlpool that could vacuum everything. Finally, the last easy song she wrote was dubbed Riding The Curl. A massive tidal wave is summoned and covers the entire area, continuing to thrash in any spot until the song ends.

There was one other song Kelpie wrote, but refuses to play herself. You could say her temper could not survive the song. it was quite difficult. Her fingers bled in the first few seconds of the song. Having not played it fully, she did not give it a name or knows of what it could do with the dangerous liquid. No matter how hard she practices, the song bests her at every bar. Furious at her failure, Kelpie actually left the temple a little bit early to join the great battle with the other musicians. To prove her worth if she was damn ready or not.

Other: Since she did not use the songs destined for her, many times has Kelpie's own songs failed her. Or even worse, turned against her. This makes her a strong opponent, but also a danger to her allies.

Name: Sahara Wurood

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Appearance: "Nelicquele" by Linda Bergkvist - Fantasy art galleries at Epilogue.net - Fantasy and Sci-fi at their best©

District: Air

Instrument: Flute

Bio: As a child Sahara was chosen by the monks to play the flute as they noticed her talent and hardworking nature. As soon as her lessons started with the flute she worked hard to perfect all that was taught to her and soon she was taught her first power song. Her first song would summon a swift wing that was strange in color and would change its nature depending on whom it was surrounding. Towards her allies it would be a light blue or some variation of that shade, towards her foes it would change to red and irritate them by lifting up nearby dirt and stones and flinging it towards them.

As the years passed, Sahara grew up to be a sweet trusting person who could be too naïve at times. As time passed she learnt four other power songs, each varying in strength and use.

The second power song had the ability to concentrate a volume of air making it almost solid, she developed this into a means of flying and taking others with her, it could be used in other ways as well.
The third and fourth where two stages of a certain summon. They take on the same form as Sahara, both have different personalities. One is a healer, the other a fighter. The third song was to control the healer which took Sahara over a year to master as the healer was strange and selfish, Sahara's complete opposite in personality. The fourth song was to control the fighter; the fighter was rash, arrogant and reckless, preferring to use her control of the element of air and her large acid tainted blade first before asking questions. The twins had the same powers as Sahara did, as she grows stronger so do they.

Her final song that she herself was too afraid to use, caused her to be entrapped in a large sphere of winds of varying speed which would harm everyone and anyone but herself. It would give her the ultimate protection and used all the caused the area around her to be in turmoil as the very nature of the area was changed by the out of control wind, From her sphere she could direct a steady stream of biting air currents that could slice her foes but it would also harm the environment around her and would harm her allies who'd get sucked into the vacuum like nature of the sphere.

Other: Twins names: Naar: The fighter. Ahlam: The healer.

What, are you a STALKER or something?
Name: Deo Meiluda

Age: 24

Gender: Male

Appearance: ImageShack - Hosting :: an07deothemagicianbydarvw4.jpg

District: Earth

Instrument: Small Snare

Bio: Deo began playing the bongos at a very young age, younger than he can remember. His parents wanted him to become Maestro of the Earth District, and as exciting as that sounded when he was a child, it was hardly in his interests once he had become older. By the time he was sixteen, he had already become bored of the bongos. In his mind it just seemed to old fashioned for his taste, all the hymns and pieces for the ancient instrunment just weren't his style of sound. His love for music was great, so he was not going to give it up easily however. He began studying sound waves, music, the theory of sound, among many other things, trying to acquire ideas for an instrunment that would be new and refreshing to the entire world... it was on his eighteenth birthday that he constructed the very first Small Snare.

Ever since the creation of this beautiful instrunment, music had become the greatest part of his life. He began writing many songs, all with different sounds and rythyms that would be some of the most innovative in all of the Earth District. One of the songs he has written allows him to make clones of himself made from the ground around him,clones that will do whatever he wills. As long as he keeps playing the song, they will stay up and running, but once it ends, they deteriorate. (Imagine a tribal beat). He has called this piece of music "Dirty Reflection".

The second song is one he has been working on ever since his family had died in a violent earthquake (age 20). The emotion in this piece shows greatly through its sound, for you can hear the passion and agony that has been poured into this music. It allows him to control the ground around him, from small little quakes, too horrific tremors that can cause unbelievable damage. (When making light quakes, the song will sound a bit softer. When wanting harsh tremors, the song will sound harsher as well. Whether soft or hard, it is several complex beats that are placed into the song). He named this "Sorrow of the Sands".

This third piece merely took him a few months to finish. It is but a simple piece, one that allows him to use chunks of earth as a projectile against his foes. The speed of the song determines the total speed of the projectile. The faster it is, the deadlier the result upon the opponent (It basically just sounds like a good ol' rock n' roll beat). The third work is called "Rock 'n' Roll".

His fourth piece is deffinately one of his greatest works. This one does not have offensive purposes, but rather defensive ones. This song was finished by the time he was twenty three. Playing this song creates a barrier of earth which surrounds his whole body. The ground bursts up from below, and forms a semi-circle over his position, blocking any normal offensive attacks. He calls this piece "The Guardian". (It is a slow, soothing beat) (Completed at age 23).

The fifth and final piece that he is writing, is not from his ideas alone. It follows to a similar sound of an ancient hymn that was used to summon a beast from the sea. Blake has been travelling all through the five Districts to find parts of the tune, and every single note is necessary to be able to complete the songs true purpose and power. He only needs to locate the last three remaining bars of music, and then he will be able too unleash the ferocity, of the sea, the terror of all who sail the sea... at but the sound of a song, he will be able to summon... the Wyrm of the Underworld. The song is known in legend as "Beastia de Terrarum". (Note: He will gain this ability later in the RP, once he has acquired all the needed notes)

(For those who don't know what a wyrm is, it is basically a dragon with no feet/legs, and has the appearance of a snake with the head of a dragon. Some have wings, others do not. In this case, it is an earth based Wyrm, so it will have no wings and erupts from below the ground).

When the temple heard of all the amazing things that his music could do, they knew there was no question that he was the chosen of the Earth. Wanting the power, they began searching for him, but luckily for Deo, he heard of their little hunt, and has been hiding from them ever since. He did not wished to be used as a tool for the world, whether it was for the good of mankind or not. He has been on the run for several months now, and the temple lackeys seem to be getting closer and closer to him everyday. How much longer can he hold this up?
