Spoiler ShowCapell|Piercing Light
Capell used to be the kind of guy that would make you feel better just by being around him, he used to have a contagious optimism that could inspire hope. However now he's just a shadow of his former self, you look upon him and you will see a defeated soul.Concordia 'Dia' L.|IceBlueWings
She is cynical, her view of the world is negative. She talks sarcastically and cynically, and without much care of anyone but herself. Her smiles are sarcastic, her laughs are sarcastic chuckles. Rarely does she give genuine happy smiles and laughs. However the truth behind her personality is that she is full of insecurities and this persona is just a wall due to her past. When it comes to people asking about her right eye, she becomes colder, preferring not to disclose the history behind it. Also, because she has lost her eye, she feels she is ugly, inside and out, which is one of her insecurities.
You can’t really expect a lot from Ty Dex, he acts the way he wants to, and at best he is a character for sure. Outspoken, and very sarcastic, but in recent times it seems like he doesn’t care much about anything, maybe a cloud of depression, or likewise all of his emotions are merely poured into taking care of and looking out for his daughter Tyra Zenith.
For someone his age, Derrick can be rather the wise-cracking type. Though, his trust can be easily be gained by others that is if he can feel that they earned it. Aside from that, when it comes to fighting and protecting those around him, Derrick will never back down from one's side and will always be there to lend a helping hand no matter what happens.Cort|King Kittan
But, the only thing that the boy really wishes to do is to soak in the peaceful vibe that Traverse Town gives off. He can mostly be found up on top of the Gizmo Shop just gazing up at the moon which he finds to be his safe haven. There are times when he can go into a trance-like state due to the fact he gets lost within deep thoughts.
Goofy, Happy-go lucky, and Confident are the best words to describe Cort. He likes to live life to fullest and that means everyday. Very easygoing and friendly, that is sometimes used against him. Though Cort can get mad pretty easily when things aren't going his way, causing him to become very reckless. One last thing is Cort has no problem killing so, it's not good to be on his bad side.
Lissa is extremely quiet. She thinks before she speaks and usually only speaks if she has something important to say. She doesn't trust anyone, especially guys, when first meeting people and she has her reasons not to. Despite her tendency not to trust people, she is always willing to help someone in trouble because she's grateful for the help someone offered her when she needed it most. Lissa tends to blow things out of proportion but Elphaba calms her down and keeps things in check.
Anya|SparksKulen Thell Neran|Professor Ven
Anya would seem kinda hyper and more nervous and mousy because of her appearance but the fact is that she is very bubbly, but she likes to be calm and cool anyways. A sweet and naturally kind hearted soul, she likes to hug people whenever she can and she commonly just does that with old friends, even with new friends too. She'll say bye and give you a hug. If she was ever in the organization her special phrase (I forgot what its called) would be, "The Eclectric Hugger" Sounds menacing huh?
But besides that she has special emotional issues branching out from her childhood. Being a bit bi-polar and dyslexic she has her own list of problems.
She never talks about her family and when it comes up she says, "I don't see them much. It interferes to much with this life I'm trying to achieve." She likes to talk and speak whatever opinion was on her mind at the time about a subject, which can get her into very heated arguments between other people. Then once she realizes what she started, she tries to undo her.
Known as the Philosopher on his World, the elf known as Kulen Thell Neraen is open-minded, to say the least. Kind and gentle at times, and horrifyingly cruel and distant in others, he understands the balance that must be kept in order to maintain pure Enlightenment. Neraen seeks knowledge like an ant does food, finding 'fountains of youth' in the artifacts he comes across on his travels. Crossing him could mean worse than death, however.Ocean|kingdomkeylight
Ocean is the pure definition of the statement "easy going" always trying to avoid fights or trouble which always seem to follow him however. Always in the wrong is what usually happens causing Ocean to break his normal attitude. However though he's constantly avoiding fights he has a tendency to enjoy them even when in a bad situation for some odd reason. Then again maybe its just his way of coping with his luck. Ocean isn't really a guy you should rely on either for he has another tendency to choose the side that offers the most like a mercenary, but there have been times when Ocean knows when to do the right thing, but whether he will is another story.Artem|kingdomkeylight
Artem isn't shy but rather just wants everyone to leave him alone in fear that if he starts friendships he will only get hurt in the end. However Artem is very courageous always defending the weak or helping people out when in a tight spot. No matter how far he wants to push the world away Artem's desire to protect shows he has a big heart, but as long as his memory is blank he doesn't want to take a chance forming bonds in fear of his past scaring them away.
Arrogant, obnoxious, cynical, contemptuous, these are all words to describe him. Clement always seems to walk in a state of perpetual superiority. Insults and taunts bounce off him, and rarely does anything faze him. Despite being fully human, Capricious wields excessive amounts of power, fueling the idea that everything and everyone is pathetic. Even his boss, whoever that may be. Capricious does, however, have an amazing dedication to a certain God, one that it seems only he follows. And to him, everyone that does not acknowledge that God isn't worth to lick the dirt off his feet.
He serves the Empire mainly because he believes in strength equals power. And he fights for them because he cannot stand the righteous and annoying 'good guys', especially those who run around with that giant key...
Haruka likes to keep things real and tends to only go after things that he knows or feels is obtainable. Because of this, he tends to take everything in stride and only shows real sides when it comes to what he fights for. For the most part Haruka can be very infuriating because he tends to be very neutral in most aspects of life. It is through this that anyone who manages to put up with him tends to stay with him for one reason or another, most of the time in hopes of getting him to be more of one for sides.
Ryoko at first seems like an all around normal young woman, however her heart and mind have surrendered to the darkness of the world a long time ago. She has a smile, that's as fake as a crocodiles. She has a calm demeanor, that betrays her inner sadist. She has no problem killing, maiming, torturing, and in fact gets off on it. It's the only time she has an honest smile. Seeing the look of despair and hopelessness in someone is ecstasy to her.
Catherine|Piercing Light (NPC)
Ryoko's Maid. Formerly her occupation was that of an assassin.
Glace is outrageously loyal to the Empire, though it may not appear that way at first. Glace at first seems like a care-free spy that does nothing but poke his nose in the business of others but he is really quite manipulative, relentless, cunning, and works for the sake of the Empire. Sometimes his loyalty may even call him to turn on those within his own ranks and exterminate them without question if they are compromising the will of the Empire (Traitors). He follows the Emperor without question as well, and shows respect to his superiors, usually referring to the Emperor as 'Your/His Majesty' and those who work above him or are his equals as 'Lord' example: Lord Ryoko or Lord Haruka. Glace likes to bend the rules more often that some would like as well but only if he feels that it is in the Empire's best interest.
He's quiet, conservative, and well-mannered. Aside from some past events, this is all we know about Onam's characteristics dealing with 'how he presents himself'. It is only towards Salforge has he ever been blatant and obnoxious, something unprecedented yet hasn't surfaced since their alliance.
A man of astute intelligence and indifference. He is best and most comfortably described as a sardonic apathist. His attitude, he never has one but he tries to cut his ties with people he comes in contact with as a natural and rational reflex of being a steel heart. He measures people with brash and cold calculations, Salforge is a realist but will speak philosophically among others such as Ciel. Pissing people off seems to be something he's good at, he can be in the likeness to some as a cold and cool arrogant man, but in truth he carries to such bearings or feelings at the description. Ciel however, he's found a fondness of as he talks and associates more with her than anyone else in the empire.
Shrewd, serene and rather haughty. Through her appearance she is thought beautiful yet the judging eyes never miss the mysteriously colder exterior of her persona. Ciel's attitude is poised, straight forward and honest to the point of harsh truthfulness, appearing to almost lack in any compassion and empathy. She doesn't hesitate in saying what's on her mind and acts upon her own philosophy and beliefs all the time even if it strikes the people around her as peculiar and strange. However, that doesn't mean she doesn't have a sense of morality and good manners. She would never betray her morals or act out of line to those she truly respects. She is not quick to lose her calm and patience so easily, and prefers to speak calmly and politely even when needing to be strict. Although these characteristics had led people in believing that she is a rather cold and uncaring individual, they have never been more wrongful for they truly miss the signs of her real personality beneath this layer of frost.
An extreme sense of loyalty and strength of will are deemed as her greatest qualities. She never gives up nor does she ever back out easily especially when a friend is involved. She'd always put her friends above her needs, despite most of her actions that would otherwise imply her negligence of such bonds. Contradictory to popular belief, she is perfectly capable of smiling and laughter, and even sparing kind words to complete strangers, much to everyone's confusion. The extent of such paradoxical actions leaves people to wonder about what she truly hides behind this mask of ice.
PrologueAbout twenty years ago, the king of Radiant Garden gathered a team of apprentices. These apprentices, five in number sought the boundaries of the heart and researched binding it to an object. The apprentices however sought another means, and to this end they would come to rebel against their master, four out of the five apprentices. The fifth apprentice became the device of the king's retribution, as he was used in action against his treacherous apprentices. By sealing their fates, he realized that his project they'd toiled over had become a success, implanting the traitors with a temporary substitute heart, known as the steel heart. The King's will fulfilled, he used his sabotaged apprentice to sever the chain between his body and his heart, and faded into memory.
The King vanished from the world never to return. In the ways of the heart, he assumed heartless form as his Nobody rested at the shores of the dark margin, even now. The King had a son, and to later discover that his father went missing plagued his son with confusion. His son was forced to become the new king of this world, to this end the son refused such a motion. The young boy began to feel the sentiments of loneliness, with no outlet for his pain of loss, the grief reduced him to tears.
It was one day as his future, bleak in nature, intervened with a shell of a man. As it approached him, it offered the majesty of rejecting the pain he'd held within himself. That the darkness would be his envelop to open others, so that they may suffer as he has. This malign figment, a heartless of the former king, to imbue his rage and hatred into his son. Embraced by the darkness, gaining resolve and ambition, he banished his name given to him by his father never to utter it again. That he should only ever be called by one name.
Eighteen years later, Disney Castle, it became the very first world to fall beneath the wrath of ambiguous Empire. A single man, besting King Mickey of the keyblade and his guard. With such powerful hatred, he corrupted this pure world, to which he reigns even today. With time, eighteen years had been woven and the young boy spiraled into that of a man. Solidarity between his cold fingers, his wrath feeding the strength of his empire. His army had been constructed of a few leading figures known for their skill and he's dubbed them his Generals.
The conquest of worlds had come into effect for nearly two years now. His eyes had hardened, the emperor only had eyes for the world his father once ruled. For he was taken from him, his lust for power and conquest sought to take his birth right back into his own hands. Preparations were made, his leading and most powerful General by the name of Clement Capricious, also known subsequently as the Prince of Darkness. Clement was to lead the invasion of Radiant Garden, soon this world would fall into the hands of the emperor. With stern vigor and rigorous resolve, the empire dispatched its army to bring this world to its knees.
"Father. You are with me now, they shall soon suffer and be used as I was. Their blood, will fill the sky with no hope of remorse or penance. They shall suffer with me....for vengeance father."
Author's Notes: Well I tried something different, by giving The Emperor an identity. A past that was never fully elaborated on in the roleplays. It occurred to me to do this because there has to be a cause and effect for the events that are to take place. In the highlight, Akans' character Clement Capricious is equally important at tying together the image of how powerful the empire truly is. The Narration will be broken up into Chapters, and it will back and forth a lot with the other characters.
