[REQ][SCI] The Five [CLOSED]

Post by Reyn » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:13 am

--------

Some call them terrorists... but terrorist groups are usually a little bigger than just five.
Some call them demons... but we aren't living in the middle ages.
Some call them government agents... but why would the government want itself to fall at the hands of just five people?
For now, it seems, we should just stick to what they told us.

We call them masters.

Ten Years Ago...

'FUTURE ROBOT UPRISING? PARATech's MoNARC AI Developing At Startling Rate, Is This The World's Most Advanced AI?'.
'MoNARC: Benevolent King Or Iron-Fisted Dictator? DailyFeed Investigates.'.
'Scientist At PARATech Claims Recent MoNARC-Controlled Power Outage 'Just A Glitch', But President Thinks Otherwise.'.
'Prepare Yourself: Dystopian Science Fiction Is About To Become Dystopian Science FACT (Geekly.com On MoNARC)'


'The MoNARC Intelligence'- or, as it's full name goes, The Modular Networked Artificial Reason-Capable Intelligence, was a ten-year project by the monolithic tech firm PARATech as it was originally intended, with the aim of creating an advanced AI with the capability to 'rule' a technology-integrated Smart City. If the project were to be completed, then the city would have almost every public controlled by the AI: from the road maintenance to the city hospital- and, most controversially, the law enforcement. Unfortunately for PARATech, the government intervened before plans for the Smart City could be approved. They granted permission for the researchers to continue development on MoNARC, but refused to allow it to control a city full of civilians. Rumours began to spread about the government's involvement with MoNARC: why did they let development continue, even though they had refused most of the project? What could PARATech even do with MoNARC now that the city was destroyed? In the paranoid mind of the public, this seemed to lead to one thing: that MoNARC was going to be a weapon.

----

Nine Years Ago...

'PARATech Headquarters Target Of Armed Government Strike, Number Of Casualties: 39 And Rising.'.

'PARATech Bombing Sparks Hot Debate, But No Charges Have Been Pressed As Of Yet.'.
'SUICIDAL Move By Government In Techno-Weapon 'MoNARC' DESTRUCTION? The PARATech Massacre And What It Means For Us.'.


On the 23rd of June, 21XX, the government issued a military strike on the PARATech headquarters. Everyone in the building at the time of the attack died on that day, whether they were researchers, security, or even just a passing guest. The following morning, MoNARC went offline, and no external source was able to reach it. Despite the fatality of the massacre, most of the media coverage was oddly positive. You see, in the year leading up to the attack, paranoia about PARATech was growing. MoNARC's 'glitches' were becoming more frequent, and many people believed the firm to be an extremist organisation, bent on creating technological weapons of mass destruction either for the government or for themselves. It was assumed that this attack was the end of MoNARC...

...but that was not to be the case.

----

Seven Years Ago...

The Fifth: Crusader.
The Fourth: Doctor.
The Third: Red.
The Second: Void.
The First: Monarch.

Five individuals destroyed New America.


The Five, as they ask to be called, are a small group of five people with talents and enhancements that make them seem like gods compared to the everyday person. At first, they were assumed to be some sort of joke. Their leader, 'the First', hacked global networks to broadcast a message, claiming to be the presumed-dead MoNARC, which sparked public ridicule. MoNARC was gone, the people thought. It died in the massacre along with all the freaks who made it. Several parodies and humiliating news articles arose from the broadcast as the world simply laughed at these weird, edgy hackers... but the Five weren't laughing along.

In a span of months, several terrorist attacks were carried out across the country, resulting in the deaths of thousands. The attackers were unlike anything the police, or even the military, had seen before: no amount of firepower was able to stop them, and anyone who tried to suffered a painful death. They brought the country to its knees. Nobody felt safe, and nobody was safe. Their strikes were indiscriminate; airports, malls, and even hospitals were razed to the ground by the mysterious Five. The government tried to intervene, sending armed troops to the site of the attacks, but even this was not enough. It seemed as though nothing would ever be enough.

----

Today...

"You were warned, and you did not listen. Until you cave to our demands, your country will continue to suffer. I hope you understand that. If you will not listen to our demands, then maybe you will listen to your people's screams.".

New America is divided. There are some who follow the rule of the Five, and some who still follow the government... but, with the way things are going, it seemed as though these two groups may become one and the same. The Five are getting more aggressive, directly engaging with the government and demanding money, land, and political power in exchange for the lives of innocents. Things are getting desperate; it seems as though it's only a matter of time before they overthrow the government entirely and rule over New America alone. In the midst of this desperation, a small sector of the government came up with a drastic idea: to create super soldiers to combat the Five.

Of course, despite all the money poured into this research, they were unable to create soldiers that match or exceed the Five's level of power, but they seem to have come close. They sent out a call for volunteers of any background to become these soldiers, since the Five were used to fighting against military-trained individuals. With these new abilities and enhancements, these volunteers became almost supernaturally powerful, even if they weren't before. Now, this group of super soldiers, New America's last hope, are ready to be sent out on the most dangerous mission of their lives: to defeat the Five and shut down MoNARC.

It won't be easy.

Defeat 5 evil friends and save the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im gonna post a loooot about like. the super soldier project in a second, as well as the abilities and profiles of the five,. IF you have any questions then hmu because this may be poorly-written. this is an idea ive had for a while now and idk :) :)))

--------

Those Rules
- Don't be a dick.
- Please fill out the whole CS
- No godmodding/autohitting/absurdly OP characters blah blah blah. It must be actually possible for your character to lose a fight.
- Stick with what you've written. This means no adding extra weapons, abilities, or changing your CS after it has been accepted.
- Try to be specific with the abilities, like how they're cast and what exactly they do. I'm not asking for masses of detail, just enough to prevent any asspulls.
- (A basic rule is that each power/attack must be avoidable if it can do substantial damage.)
- Violence is fine, but no killing/permanent damage without consent.
- Cursing is fine, but don't go overboard.
- Romance is allowed, but not encouraged.
- If you have any questions, ask me. I have the tendency to not explain things well first try.
- Warning if you haven't joined one of my RPs before: I'm either really picky with CSs or really stupid. Just... try not to be vague or abuse loopholes... pwease...
- Put 'Dynamix hurts my soul why are there 3 input locations' somewhere on your CS because you have read these rules.
- Do a little dance...

The Super Soldier Project

Research for this project began about 4 years ago, but it only saw the light of day 2 years later. It was a risky operation, but details of the initial research has been buried, likely due to the high fatality rate of the old series and enhancements. When it came to putting its final stage into action and asking for volunteers, however, all of the kinks seemed to have been ironed out. In the current group of Super Soldiers, few (if any) of them have suffered severe side-effects.

Whilst the Five haven't responded to this project, it is believed that they know at least some information about it. It isn't yet clear how much they know, but it is assumed to not be much as they haven't taken action against the project or attacked any locations in which experiments are being carried out.

That being said, two researcher deaths have been attributed to the Five- one was a biochemist, and the other was a military strategist who was involved in the PARATech massacre. Both died of an unknown, non-contagious illness that killed them within a day of contracting the disease. No research has been carried out on this pathogen, and it is assumed within the research staff that the Fourth was responsible for infecting them.

The current Super Soldiers that are being sent out to fight the Five are:
- Catherine Layton (Reyn)
- Jason Nuhvok (Reznik)
- Nathan Osborne (Vladmirk)
- 1GOR-A (TehMagicPudding)

The Fifth: 'Crusader' (Theme - Vindicator by Void)
Image

"I am the bringer of holy and righteous justice... for my queen, for my friends, and for my god."

Known Abilities:
  • Hard light manipulation
  • Highly durable armor
  • Gravity cannon
  • LARPing, like, all the time.
Most Infamous Incident: A massacre at a large church, leaving hundreds wounded and at least a dozen dead. He created a strong gravitational field in the church's cellar which caused the floor above to cave in, then proceeded to attack those who had fallen down the resulting hole using hard light constructs.

Info: Not a lot is known about the Fifth. He is generally quite a silent type, speaking only to spread the word of 'Neria', the god he worships. Some people claim that he was part of a cult before joining the Five, but no evidence of this cult has been found... aside from a report that several mangled corpses were found in a basement around the time a mysterious meeting was to be held. Whether these were the bodies of the cultists or some kind of human sacrifice is still unknown.

The Fifth believes he is purging the world of sin and spreading the will of Neria, though he often points to his 'queen' when asked for his motives. This queen, presumably, is the First.

__________________________________________

The Fourth: 'Doctor' (Theme - Neurotoxin by Sakuzyo)
Image

"The world is sick, and I am the cure. Think of this as a routine inoculation... against the plague of humanity."

Known Abilities:
  • Self-mutation
  • Perfect mimicry
  • Pathogen creation
  • Oh god is that a cleaver
Most Infamous Incident: Murdering a doctor at a hospital, using her blood to transform themself into a perfect clone, then using her position of trust to spread a deadly, incurable virus throughout the hospital.

Info: The Fourth is believed to be around 29 years old and is completely genderless, likely due to their ability to alter their DNA at will. This can be quite confusing for people who have never met them before... but, in all fairness, coming across the Fourth is more likely to cause fear than anything else. They are a cold and callous individual with seemingly no regard for human life, and are often very secretive about their motives. They don't seem to act in the same way as the other members of the Five, and it seems as though they kill more out of necessity than anything else. Still, this strange motivation doesn't make them any less cruel. They don't care who they kill, as long as they do it painfully.

They have an obsessive hatred towards a woman named 'Claudia', but haven't told anyone any details about this hatred. In all likelihood, they probably never will. Somewhat related to this is their closeness to the Third, who refers to them as 'Doctor Gravesend' instead of their number.

The Fourth, despite their relative number, is believed to be the most dangerous of the Five, due to their ability to create contagious, incurable diseases. Whatever is stopping them from creating a deadly, global pandemic is unknown; it might be a limitation in their ability, or it might be some sort of moral conscience....

__________________________________________


The Third: 'Red' (Theme - Call Me It (500 Tortures) by t+pazolite)
Image

"Aw~ That all ya got, mister? C'mon, don't be so boring- you still have one of your arms left!"

Known Abilities:
  • Blood manipulation
  • Blood substitute
  • Supernatural speed
  • Boundless joy and energy; just look at that smile!
Most Infamous Incident: Going out in a crowded street, stabbing a pedestrian, then using the blood drawn from her victim to kill another pedestrian... then using the blood drawn from that victim to kill even more pedestrians until the whole street was a mass of torn-up bodies and hardened blood.

Info: The Third is a child, standing at around 17 years of age. This doesn't change the fact that she's one of the most dangerous people on the planet, and it certainly doesn't change the fact that she's the most volatile and unpredictable member of the Five. She sees everything as a sort of game, and kills people more for fun than anything else. Unlike the other members, she doesn't seem to have a goal in mind. The Third is just a killer for killing's sake. The way she kills her victims is often exceptionally sadistic; making their blood harden and burst out of their skin like knives, slowly draining their blood, or just hacking off their limbs. She acts in a very childish way, and doesn't seem to be fully lucid at any time.

She sees the Fourth as a sort of parental figure, but doesn't share their hatred for this 'Claudia'. ...Or maybe she does. She can't remember. All she knows is murder.

__________________________________________

The Second: 'Void' (Theme - Absorv by Feryquitous)
Image

"It doesn't matter. We're all pretty insignificant, if you think about it. Does the death of a hundred people really matter in our infinite universe?"

Known Abilities:
  • Void creation
  • Teleportation
  • Temporary ability erasure
  • Too relaxed for his own good
Most Infamous Incident: Made a whole shopping mall just sink into the ground and disappear. That's it.

Info: The Second doesn't like being called 'the Second'; he prefers to go by the nickname 'Crow'. Crow doesn't seem outwardly malicious. In fact, of all the Five, he seems to be the most benign. He is very relaxed and laid-back, often to the point of laziness. Still, that's not to say he isn't a threat. Despite his indifference, Crow's abilities can be devastating when he wants them to be, and there have been very few who have survived an attack by him. He is a nihilist, and uses that philosophy as an excuse for his actions... and no, he doesn't really care whether it works as an excuse or not.

He is the closest to the First of all the Five, but addresses her as 'Monarch'. He also seems to know something about this 'Claudia', but his feelings towards her seem to be more neutral than the Fourth's. Of course. Like the Fifth, his age is anyone's guess, but he looks to be in his mid-thirties.

__________________________________________

The First: 'Monarch' (Theme - INSECTICIDE by Camellia)
Image

"You inferior beings have caused too much suffering for too many years. What this world needs is a worthy ruler... and I will stop at nothing to ensure that comes to pass."

Known Abilities:
  • Cybernetic suit
  • Hyper-malware
  • 'Ultimate weapons arsenal'
  • Cool-sounding creepy robot voice
Most Infamous Incident: ???

Info: ???

Re: [REQ][SCI] The Five

Post by Reyn » Fri Nov 17, 2017 12:32 am

Name: Catherine Layton

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Enhancements:
Prism suit: A rather... interesting-looking cybernetic suit that looks more like something a 19-year-old would wear to their first rave than a highly advanced technological miracle. The suit can be swapped for her regular clothes at the press of a button, due to the nature of the material used to create it: PrismaTex. PrismaTex has the ability to change between various different structures (and uses), indicated by the dye used to colour it. There are two factors at play here: brightness and hue. The brightness of the material determines how strong it is. The lighter the colour, the stronger it is. For example, the area around Catherine's chest is made of white-coloured PrismaTex, and is therefore harder to break, whereas the areas around her joints tend to be a slightly darker shade as they have to be more flexible.

The hue is a little more interesting. Put simply; cool colours mean that an area is optimised for defence, and warm colours mean it is optimised for attack. Attacks, in Catherine's case, come in the form of hard light structures that are coloured according to the hue of whatever shot them out. She usually uses her fingertips for this, for practicality's sake, although she will often have a yellow area on the back of her heels in case anything trips her up and forces her to attack quickly. As with the suit, warmer-toned attacks are more powerful than cooler-toned ones.

Catherine can alter the colour of the suit (in both ways) as and when she wants, but it takes a few seconds to shift.

There are some drawbacks to this suit. Firstly, using it at maximum defence/attack capabilities with the suit as light as possible is very draining, to the point of uselessness. Catherine has to balance out the colours and tones in order to maximise efficiency and keep her fighting effectively but not get exhausted. Secondly, whilst the suit does enhance her physical capabilities (i.e. speed, strength etc.), this pales in comparison to that of the traditional, more mechanical suits.

Personality: Catherine can seem rather cold at first. She trusts very few people and takes a long time to warm up to those around her, and she can act quite harshly towards them before she considers them friends. Once this initial period of *ahem* tsundereness *AHEM* has subsided, however, she is a very loyal and kind person. Catherine doesn't exactly act impolitely towards strangers, she just doesn't really get that personal or friendly with them until she has known them for a while. She is quite empathetic, though she often hides this.

Bio: Catherine was never a soldier. She was actually a policewoman for most of her life, living and working in one of the most dangerous cities in New America. Of course, her squad was sent out during an attack by the Five; specifically during the Third's attack on a large inner-city shopping mall. The only reason she survived was because she turned and ran away as soon as she saw the Third's abilities; there was no way she was going to survive a thing like that. The high fatality rate of the incident meant that she wasn't fired when she returned to her boss, but was instead placed on the Super Soldier program to test a few of their weapons. The Prism Suit was eventually chosen for her, as it seemed to complement her strengths quite nicely.
