Key Info for the settings and main characters.

(Some of the Info is still a work in progress, and needs editing. But for the most part it's all there.)
The City of Arnvista
Located on the Eastern Seaboard, the City of Arnvista is a bustling metropolis that boasts a population of 10 million. The site of Apex Implementations' Corporate Headquarters, the sprawling city is home to people from all walks of life As diverse in its architecture as it is in its people, the city gives across a patchwork feel, sleek and post-modern skyscrapers stand side by side with traditional centuries-old stonework. Despite this,Arnvista is by and large a modern and thriving city, supporting a wide variety of facilities from state of the art hospitals and expansive public libraries to its very own seaport.The city isn’t all high-rising neatness, however, and while being a very prosperous city, it still holds many problems and secrets beneath the shadow of the city's many skyscrapers.
Apex Implementations

CEO: Lorette Lècuyer.​

Board of Directors: Russel Butler. Naomi Mekhdiev. Bohai Hao. Edgar Collins.​

Major Subdivisions: Private Security. Weapons development and testing. Transport.​

Owned Subsidiaries: Waylight Security. Lebadev Armaments. Northfarer Transport.

Apex Implementations, once called Apex Security Services, was founded 91 years ago by Ford Buckman. At the time, it was a small Private Security business, with a scant 38 employees headquartered in a single office. Since its inception, Apex Implementations has grown into an international Conglomerate and stands as a major force within the Corporate Sector. Apex Implementations is a large player in both Corporate and Private Sectors. Providing Security, Military Grade weaponry production, and Transportation. It has recently started to expand its weapons department, an ever-growing and evolving market in the World’s Economy.

Name: Rasteva
Age: Unknown
Alignment: Neutral
Positive Personality Traits: Efficient, Stable, Intelligent, Dedicated, Dependable.
Negative Personality Traits: Ruthless, Stubborn, Predictable, Arrogant, Judgemental.

Rasteva's imposing stature, and rather terrifying appearance cause people to be wary of them at best. At worst they presume them to be nothing more than a monstrosity bent on harming anyone crossing their path. Such reactions are not new to Rasteva and they have grown indifferent to them throughout their existence, making no effort to correct anyone on the matter unless it absolutely conflicts with their personal interests and existence. Rasteva will not be found helping others without being sure that they will receive what they consider a sufficient reward in return. Doing good for the sake of good is not something they will be found engaging in, and concepts such as valor and honor are of no interest to them. Rasteva only ever adheres to the laws of a given territory, not because it is the right thing to do, but because it will simply save them trouble to do so at all. The only upside to this is that Rasteva is equally uninterested in doing Evil for the sake of Evil, and makes no direct effort to go out of their way to harm others unless they feel particularly threatened, They can and will, however, engage in acts of evil should they find it to be most beneficial to their existence and overall goals, whatever they may be at the time.

Despite being unconcerned and indifferent to morality, Rasteva is rather even-tempered and polite, often greeting others with a great deal of respect and surprising kindness. Rasteva does enjoy conversation quite a bit, and they are especially fond of gossip and stories even if they prove to be true or not. A self-proclaimed collector of knowledge, Rasteva has spent countless millennia of existence traveling and absorbing as much as they possibly can. This is possibly the single most glaring loophole in their indifference as Rasteva will gladly assist someone in a given task in exchange for something previously unknown. This insatiable hunger for knowledge is something that Rasteva is unable to ignore and deny, and may very well be their sole reason for existence.

Rasteva is quite confident and self-assured as most of their kind tend to be, and rarely if ever doubts in themselves or their abilities. An exceptionally long existence has granted Rasteva with learning and experience unfathomable to shorter-lived races. This of course also comes a high degree of arrogance, though they feel it to be completely deserved as many Supernatural Entities are prone to. This has also led to Rasteva being exceptionally set in their own ways, and changing their opinion on nearly anything is a hard fought battle, and more often than not is a lost cause.

While not prone to starting fights or causing trouble for others, Rasteva can show a terrifying lack of empathy to anyone not deemed an immediate ally. The Daemon can be as ruthless in regular interaction as they are in combat, caring nothing for the motives or ideals of their opponents. Rasteva has no qualms about killing in the slightest, and won't even make excuses for doing so beyond that it was convenient for them to do so at the time. Rasteva will only ever act in a manner that is beneficial to them and their continued existence. To Rasteva the only thing that matters and will always matter is Rasteva. They make no pains to compare the lives of others to their own, as the Daemon's life is the only one worth considering and holds value immeasurable. Good and Evil are the same thing to the Daemon, and as such makes no effort to differentiate between the two. The only things that Rasteva makes any effort to distinguish from each other are things that can be made use of, and things that have no use at all. Anything found to be wholly useless is cast aside without a second thought.
Lorette Lècuyer

Name: Lorette Lècuyer
Occupation: CEO of Apex Implementations.
Place of Residence: As far as everyone that knows her is aware, she sleeps under her desk.
Daemon: Tasosael




Lorette:Lorette Lècuyer is known to be both fiercely ambitious and intelligent, and at first glance seems to be rigid in her bearing and possesses a rather cool demeanor. Her voice is noticeably deep and her mere presence commands the respect of those under her. The Media has never been sure what to make of Lorette both framing her as a Paragon of Humanity and a greed driven Corporate Executive in equal measure. Lorette shrugs this off with practiced measure, caring of her public opinion only enough to remain on the general public's good side. Past outward glances Lorette has proven to be both patient and kind, speaking openly with any that would ask for her time. She believes fully in the potential of others and takes great pains to nurture that potential to the fullest in all that serve under her. Many have found her presence to be both calming and reassuring, though there is a noticeable intensity in both her gaze and mannerisms. Despite her constant efforts to see her own ambitions brought to fruition, Lorette operates by a strict code of honor and conduct and has a strong dislike of underhanded tactics, something virtually unheard of in the Corporate Sector. However, due to both necessity for such behavior and Tasosael's own urging, Lorette often finds herself engaging in the same dirty tactics she despises due to their deep entrenchment in her type of business. This has become a moral dilemma for her and she often broods over it as a result.

Lorette, however, has no qualms in combating anyone that stands in the way of her ambitions, whatever they may be. Be it in the Boardroom, or if she's allowed to have her way, the Arena, anyone that disagrees with her is considered both an opponent and an obstacle to be removed in short order. Lorette cannot abide by failure, either personal or from her Employees and will cast aside anyone unable to prove their worth to her without a second thought. Apex Implementations has always, and will always be her driving force and only concern. Lorette works tirelessly to push the Company towards a brighter future and is more than willing to leave behind anyone she has deemed unfit to see it.[/align]

Tasosael: It is currently unknown how old Tasosael is, but he is rumored to have existed since the dawn of Human Civilization. Tasosael is not one for conversation and tends to be aloof, speaking only at length to Lorette and only to others when absolutely needed though he has proven to be very intelligent and well spoken. He has a particular interest in Human Politics and often wonders both aloud and privately how such a system might be applied to the masses of Daemons on Earth. These opinions are especially strange when his partnership with Lorette is taken into consideration and neither of them makes any effort to explain what they get out of it.

Like Lorette, Tasosael operates on a Code of Conduct, those his is not nearly as rigid as Lorette's. Nor does he lose sleep over the possibility of cheating someone. A Pragmatist at the core, the Daemon can and will employ questionable methods to achieve his goals, though his partnership with Lorette can make that difficult sometimes. A lover of combat and an accomplished warrior, Tasosael wishes that Lorette would take part in more a battles and can be quite moody if not allowed to fight. Tasosael can only make the distinction between those who are worthy, and those who are unworthy. Anyone claiming to have worth, should be ready and waiting to prove it at a moment's notice.

When he is not projecting a physical form, Tasosael retreats into the Tactical Sword that Lorette keeps tied at her hip.


How Lorette came to acquire Apex Implementations is crouched in both mystery and conjecture. Before taking the helm as the corporation's CEO, Apex had been a family owned business since the day of its inception. At some point before his death, the aging CEO David Buckley saw to it that all of the Company holdings and assets were turned over to Lorette the current CEO of the smaller Private Security Company, Waylight Security. In the process he passed over his four children, leaving them angry and confused. But none more so than his eldest son, Harlan Buckley. The ensuing legal battle was incredibly ugly, but Lorette never once faltered and was ultimately victorious.

Legally, the acquisition was airtight, and despite their digging, the Buckley family could not find a single loose end. On paper, all it seemed was that one CEO had passed his assets off to a qualified candidate within the same business as him.

Behind closed doors, the rumors only flew.

Lorette was both a stranger and an outsider. And never before had she been observed doing business with David Buckley. Her appearance around the time of his death and subsequently absconding with his business was a severe point of contention. Lorette was presumed everything from the dead man's Mistress to his Illegitimate Daughter and whatever could possibly lie between. Her silence on the matter only served to infuriate the Buckley Family even more.

And yet despite all this Apex Implementations only continued to grow and flourish under Lorette's guidance and remains a major force within the Corporate sector. Lorette's own company, Waylight Security is now the main subsidiary and has become the Security force within Apex while the business branches out into other avenues. David Buckley's family had long since grown silent, but some wonder if they might return again. David's eldest son, Harlan swore that he would one day take back from Lorette what she'd stolen from his family and has thus far not forgotten that promise despite having yet to act on it.

Lorette met Tasosael over 8 years ago while on a Business trip to China. It is currently unknown what transpired between the two of them while she was there, but an accord was met and the Daemon has not left her side ever since.
Allister Schoen
Name: Allister Schoen
Occupation:Personal Assistant to Lorette Lècuyer.
Place of Residence: Tuxedo Junction, considering all the time he spends there.
Daemon: Faendr



Allister: Allister has known Lorette personally since he was a child. Allister carries himself with a great deal of refinement, though unlike Lorette, Allister tends to be more easygoing and approachable. Polite and affable, Allister enjoys conversation at length and will often invite others to Tea in order to engage in idle chatter. Allister has a deep appreciation for beautiful things and tends to be fastidious in the manner in which he dresses and conducts himself in public. This along with a particular charm tends to draw people to him like moths to a flame, though he doesn't mind. He would describe himself as 'charismatic' but close friends often refer to him as an attention whore. This coupled with his insistence on maintaining certain aesthetic causes Allister to bump heads with less than refined employees of Apex, and on more than one occasion Lorette has had to step in and reign in his behavior. Despite this Allister has nothing but the utmost respect in Lorette and trusts her wholeheartedly, and she returns this trust and respect in full.

Faendr: This Daemon takes on the form of a ghostly Stag, and indeed their passing is marked by an ethereal fog settling over the area. Like Allister, Faendr is overly concerned with keeping appearances and dignity. As such, Faendr strictly judges other Daemons based upon the physical forms that they choose to take and has no love for those deemed too hideous or unrefined for their company. Faendr can be somewhat stern and is rather standoffish towards anyone that isn't Allister. Unlike their Human partner, Faendr will not be seen speaking at great length with anyone over tea, though they do enjoy the attention of others especially any kind of praise. The Daemon enjoys being in the spotlight and showing off and so they will not be found turning down the opportunity to fight.

When they are not manifesting a physical form, Faendr resides in a Stag shaped pin on Allister's lapel.


Allister is a fervent believer in Lorette's ambitions and sees the introduction of Daemons into society as a step towards a bright and glorious future for Humanity as a whole. As such he is more than happy to enforce Lorette's will if it means bringing those that would stand in the way of this future to heel. His even temper and refined attitude would not cause one to immediately peg Allister as being combat oriented, nor does he carry and weaponry like other Apex employees and yet this does not make him any less dangerous. He and his Daemon are both of the opinion that fighting is not an act of violence, so much as it is an artful display meant to be observed by all. A display that Allister is more than happy give whether the recipient is willing or not.

Allister was born to working-class parents int he city of Arnvista and while their life was not particularly glamorous, the young boy did not want for anything. Despite this Allister dreamed of far more than what his humble beginnings afforded him.There were many nights that Allister would sit at his bedroom window and stare at the twinkling lights of Arnvista's many skyscrapers and wondered if there would come a day that he would shine as brightly.

It was during a trip to the park during a lovely Spring day that Allister met Faendr. The Boy was immediately drawn to the Stag's ethereal form and stunning presence, much to the Daemon's chagrin. Faendr attempted to shoo Allister away with little success as they boy promptly declared that they were friends. The Stag's irritation was somewhat alleviated by the boy's constant awe and assurances that Faendr was 'The prettiest Deer in the world!' and over time and after many daily visits, the Daemon came to tolerate Allister. The Boy's parents would laugh at Alliser's exclamations that he'd made friends with a ghostly Stag, thinking it nothing more than a child's overactive imagination.
Audrey Kinnaird
Name: Audrey Kinniard
Age: 28
Occupation: Junior Security Officer, Apex Implementations.
Place of Residence: The Gym, bro.
Daemon: Sanzir





Audrey: Hot-Blooded and unyielding, Audrey Kinnaird is a force to be reckoned with on and off the battlefield. The woman's crass manner is abrasive to many, but those that truly know her speak highly of her loyalty and unwavering conviction. Audrey is significantly more casual in manner and behavior than her coworkers, often not bothering with honorifics or titles. Because of this, she is by far the most approachable of her team. She is loud to talk and quick to boast, and even quicker to come to blows with those that have wronged her. Audrey has always preferred to punch first and ask questions later, much to the chagrin of her superiors. But her heart has always been in the right place, and the woman's actions are always motivated by the desire to do right by those around her.

True to form, Audrey is a fighter at heart and is always looking for a means to test her strength. Audrey is well versed in several Martial Arts and when she utilizes Sanzir's ever burning flames, she is capable of delivering devastating unarmed strikes with hands and feet wreathed in fire.

Sanzir: Sanzir, much like Audrey is very friendly and they are quite empathetic to others. A chatterbox to the core, the large bird will talk to anyone and everyone, regardless of if they're listening or not. Sanzir is best described as a 'creature driven by emotion' and they feel very strongly about many things. Never one to do anything halfway, Sanzir fully believes that if one gives all that they are, others will do so in return. This is very well illustrated in their personal bond with their Human partner. Sanzir understands Audrey in a way no one else can and vice versa. They play best off of each other's feelings in the midst of battle, and such is their connection that Sanzir does not require verbal commands or even gestures to understand what Audrey requires of them.

When they are not manifesting their physical form, Sanzir retreats into a tattoo on Audrey's back that depicts a Phoenix with wings outstretched.


Audrey is a fairly recent hire of Apex implementations, joining only a scant year and a half ago. She caught Lorette's eye during a particularly grueling MMA Title Match and though Audrey's spirit burned brightly that day, she was ultimately defeated. While Audrey was rather despondent about the loss, Lorette saw in the younger woman great promise and even greater power. Never one to miss out on a profitable opportunity, the CEO was quick to bring Audrey on board and had her placed directly under the watchful eye of her Chief of Security as an intern. Since then Audrey has been promoted to a Junior Officer, and answers to the Chief of Security and in the event of his absence, his Lieutenant.

Nikhil Bhattacharya

Name: Nikhil Bhattacharya
Age: 36
Occupation: Head of Research and Development. Apex Implementations.
Place of Residence: Studio Apartment within the Business District.
Daemon: Eson





Nikhil: Nikhil is a soft-spoken man and is not one to be overly emotional. He does, however, tend to ramble on excitedly when speaking about his points of interest, and will easily talk the ear off of anyone that will listen. Nikhil's research into Daemons and all corresponding technology keeps him very busy and he has little time for socializing. Though he is well mannered and polite, Nikhil can be overwhelmingly blunt to the point of rudeness and on more than one occasion has a joke flown completely over his head. Despite this, or because of it, other members of Lorette's core team can often be seen coming and going from Nikhil's Lab to bother him. These spontaneous visits would irritate him greatly at first, but over the years he has grown accustomed to them and now enjoys them a great deal though he'd never openly admit it.

Nikhil is not a combatant by his own choice, though when he was first hired Lorette did stress the importance of learning the ins and outs of Daemon battling to better understand them. Since then Nikhil has become better versed in fighting alongside a Daemon, though he and his partner prefer to operate in a defensive manner rather than go on the offensive.

The Visor that Nikhil wears was specifically created to better track the separate movements of Eson's 20 arms as doing so without it leaves him disoriented and sometimes makes him ill. The Visor is indispensable both in and out of battle, as it feeds the Engineer a constant stream of data from his surroundings and aids in his research and as such he is rarely seen out of it.

Eson: An oddity even by the standards of Daemons, Eson is known to be both infuriatingly vague and prone to overwhelming others with mountains of information at the same time. Like Nikhil, Eson is remarkably brilliant and seeks knowledge unheard of before. Eson is like most Daemons in that all they know about Humanity comes from strict observation over a long period of time. When Humanity and Daemons first came together in an effort to gain a better understanding of each other, Eson was very excited, eager to finally gain a hands-on understanding of Humans. It is for this reason that they work so well with Nikhil and eagerly answers all the man's questions so long as he answers theirs in turn. Together the two of them have made massive strides towards better bridging the gap between their two species and are constantly working towards building a bright future for both Humans and Daemonkind

As far as appearances go, Eson rests at the upper limits of the Humanity's ability to comprehend the incomprehensible. Eson possesses 20 humanoid arms, each one moving and acting of its own accord and claims that manifesting any more would render any Human that looked upon them completely mad.

Like Nikhil, Eson does not engage in combat often and devotes their time to study and research alongside their Human partner, only fighting to garner information used to further the pair's study on the capabilities on Daemons in general. In battle, Eson uses their many limbs to grapple opponents and deflect strikes rather than outwardly attacking. Their vast number of limbs are also disorienting to Human opponents, and their constant movements can be disorienting as Humans cannot focus on each one separately.

When they are not manifesting a physical form, Eson retreats into the Visor that Nikhil is often seen wearing. If not that, Eson will retreat into a simple Tungsten ring that Nikhil wears on his right hand.


A brilliant Mechanical Engineer and self-proclaimed Daemon enthusiast, Nikhil Bhattacharya heads the Research and Development division of Apex Implementations. Nikhil was not always an employee of Apex Implementations, and at one point even worked for one of their competitors. This all changed however when Lorette made contact with the man, revealing to him the existence of Daemons, and Nikhil's interest in them was both immediate and all-consuming. Sensing an opportunity to delve into one of the greatest mysteries ever set before Humankind and attain knowledge unheard of, Nikhil resigned from his current position and immediately signed on with Apex Implementations. The power offered by Daemons intrigued the man greatly, and he saw within Lorette the opportunity to be at the forefront of any of Humanity's advancements made in their regard. The CEO knew in full that Nikhil would accept her offer, having already been aware of his work beforehand, and knowing that he was prone to a certain mysticism, an oddity within the scientific field.

While Lorette might have been enthralled with Nikhil's work and enthusiasm, her Chief of Security was not and he openly questioned where Nikhil's loyalties might lay. His brilliance was obvious and Richard knew full well how much of an asset the man would be to Lorette, but Richard wondered if one day Nikhil might betray her in turn as he was so quick to leave his last employer without a backward glance.

Nikhil swore to Lorette that all he desired was to continue his life's work and to hopefully usher in a new age of technology through the study of Daemons, seeing this as the single greatest opportunity that he would ever receive in his life. Swearing lifelong fealty to Lorette and that he had no desire to work anywhere else, Nikhil has remained with Apex ever since, always under the watchful eye of Richard
The Engineer dove into his new work immediately and with a newfound vigor. Under his direction, the R&D Department has flourished, and Nikhil has made great strides in the field of Daemon Technologies. He is responsible for the advancements that allow for the scanning and containment of Daemons, technology that is becoming more and more necessary with each passing day. With the help of his Daemon partner Eson, Nikhil has delved into the sea of mysteries that surround Daemonkind and strives every day to delve ever deeper. His enthusiasm on the matter is always a note of concern for the Chief of Security, however, and Richard worries that Nikhil would go so far as to sell his own soul if it meant uncovering the secrets of Daemonkind.

Richard Solberg

Name: Richard Solberg
Age: 43
Occupation: Chief of Security. Apex Implementations
Place of Residence: Like Lorette, he probably sleeps in his office.
Daemon: Afnet





Richard: Tall, deep-voiced and foreboding, Richard Solberg cuts an imposing figure; as to be expected from the man bearing the title of Chief of Security at Apex Implementations. Richards maintains a stern and commanding presence within the offices of Apex HQ, a veritable army of Officers at his beck and call. The everyday stresses of Richard's work are not overly evident to many, as the man is nigh unflappable, to the point that it's become a running joke within the office. "The building could literally burst into flames, and Richard wouldn't even bat an eye." is a favored joke, but it seems to hold some bit of truth. No one can ever recall in recent history, a point in which Richard has become visibly upset. Despite almost always seeming irritable, Richard maintains a rather cool demeanor in the face of disaster and seems to view even the wost of problems as nothing more than minor inconveniences. Many assume that this stems from years of Military training and service, though Richard is quick to assure any that care to listen that he simply cannot afford to lose his temper with so many people relying on him.

Gruff demeanor aside, Richard is a man of kindness and empathy and takes great strides to get to know the people that serve under him. Preferring to cultivate bonds of loyalty and trust with his subordinates, rather than the detachment that his Service drilled into him years prior. Richard is a man that leaves his door and ears open to any that need it, even while he works diligently to maintain the safety and security of the building and all that reside in it.

A perceptive and cunning individual, it is said that there is nothing that escapes Richard's gaze. While this has earned him the respect and admiration of his subordinates, Richard's unwillingness to allow any that have roused his ire to escape his grasp is a source of fear for any that would oppose him. The Chief of Security is not one to release any prey that he has managed to capture, and will chase his quarry into Pits of Hell if need be.

Afnet: A strange creature to be sure, Afnet's many heads and voices provide a constant source of confusion for all that come in contact with them. A lover of pranks and jokes, Afnet has a tendency to pop out of walls and floors, startling people for amusement. As to be expected of a creature with seven heads Afnet talks a great deal and is a source of near constant headaches for Richard. Their snake-like necks always twisting and turning, seeming ready to coil around anyone that draws too close, the Daemon's armored scales and massive fangs strike terror into many that gaze upon them, but it is Afnet's many voices that are the true danger.

Capable of mimicking any voice that they hear, the Daemon has drawn many to their doom by pretending to be a friend or loved one. Afnet's necks can stretch to a great length, significantly more than the length of their projected form, often bringing forth the question of how big Afnet truly is. This allows Afnet to be in places that they conceivably should not be and they act as Richard's eyes and ears, relaying information back to the man and allowing him to move in and strike.

Afnet and Richard are at their most dangerous, however, when they create music together.

The Chief of Security constantly carries a Guitar Case with him, the instrument inside being where Afnet resides when they are not manifesting a physical form. When Richard strums one of the six strings on the guitar, one of Afnet's heads begins to sing. The potency and frequency of these songs vary based on how Richard chooses to play but they can have a variety of effects. The songs are capable of bolstering the strength of allies that hear them, causing Daemon and Human alike to fight with renewed fervor. More often than not, however, the songs are used to incite despair and terror with Richard's opponents. The Chief of Security will play six different notes, causing six of Afnet's heads to sing, pinning their quarry in place in a state of fear.

The Seventh head then strikes.

Richard did not always have the distinction of serving as Apex's Chief of Security, having served in the United States Military for years prior to his employment there. Richard's Military history is not particularly decorated or notable, his career being rather normal for men of his age within the service. He did not gain much notice until he returned to civilian life and began work in the Private Security sector. Noted for both his commitment and tenacity, Richard's ability to foresee, and subsequently stave off danger seemed almost supernatural at times. This did not escape Lorette Lècuyer's notice, the woman always eager to find talent wherever it might flourish and claim it for her own.

Neither did it escape the notice of the Daemon Tasosael.

In truth Afnet and Tasosael held a history that went on farther back than the dawn of Humanity, their fates intertwined from a single point long before Lorette and Richard were even alive. It took little urging from Tasosael to bring Richard aboard, and he has served as her Chief of Security since that day.

Richard met Afnet 20 years ago under mysterious circumstances, though on one occasion Richard described the event as "A young fool making a deal with the Devil."

Matsuko Oshiro

Name: Matsuko Oshiro
Age: 33
Occupation: Lieutenant Security Officer. Apex Implementations.
Place of Residence: She has a nice apartment in the Entertainment District like the Hipster she is.
Daemon: Sagaron





Matsuko: An energetic and clever woman, Matsuko serves as the Lieutenant Security Officer and Richard's 2nd in command. Where Richard maintains a stern air about him, Matsuko is both cheery and sharp-tongued. The woman is prone to flinging barbed insults towards any that would rouse her ire to the point that Subordinates will flee the area should she be observed to be in a foul mood. Matsuko is infamous for drilling Apex's security forces to exhaustion, demanding excellence from each and every one of them. A lifelong practitioner of Kendo, Matsuko can often be seen in the HQ gym training alone or with Lorette. Like the CEO, Matsuko keeps a sword and scabbard tied to her hip.

If Richard represents the eyes and ears of Apex, Matsuko bears the teeth and claws. She meets any and all opposition with a surprising level of ferocity, and like her superior Matsuko is unwilling to release any prey caught in her grasp. Her pugnacious attitude can come off abrasive to many, but none that have met her can doubt Matsuko's skill in battle, nor her commitment to her work. She gets on surprisingly well with Audrey, despite the two women butting heads more often than not. Much to the chagrin of Richard, the two of them have the habit of combining their efforts to annoy him and are often subject to stern lectures from him.

While eager to see the future that Lorette wishes to bring to pass, Matsuko holds a great deal of skepticism. Not for the CEO or her ambitions, but of the idea that any would be worthy to see it. She remains silent on the manner, doing as she instructed, but Matsuko holds no qualms about disposing of any that are deemed unfit to see the future ushered in by Apex, and will gladly dispose of anyone deemed unworthy with the efficiency and brutality that she has come to be known for.

Sagaron: Despite his otherwise fearsome appearance, Sagaoron is a very mild mannered Daemon. He speaks softly as if worried that he may frighten others and keeps close proximity to Matsuko at all times. The Daemon has a habit of 'swimming' through floors, walls, and ceilings to get from place to place, but will pull himself on land and propel himself forward with powerful limbs. Much like the Orcas that he resembles, Sagaron is very curious and will playfully bat and nudge objects that garner his interest. Unfortunately for foes, this behavior extends to battle and the Daemon is prone to playing with any prey that he catches. Sagaron operates will in conjunction with Afnet. The many-headed Daemon will scour the area for potential prey and direct Sagaron towards it. Sagaron's ability to attack from seemingly anywhere makes him a fearsome combatant, and he favored for his ability to get the jump on the opposition with minimal effort.

When he is not projecting a physical form, Sagaron resides within the sword that Matsuko keeps with her.


Matsuko's service to Apex Implementations is somewhat distinguished, the woman quickly setting herself apart from the rest from day one. Her aggressive manner, and willingness to rise to any and all challenges quickly boosted her to the ranks where she eventually settled as 2nd in command to Richard where she has remained ever since.

Re: Friends in the Void. 1x1 RP(OOC)

Post by Nyx » Fri Jan 12, 2018 4:25 am

Name: Grayson Belmont
Age: 19
Occupation: Junior Security Officer. Waylight Securities, Apex Implementations.
Place of Residence: Small, one-bedroom apartment.


Grey eyes. 6'4". 210lbs. Usually seen in typical WS uniform.


Grayson: Grayson’s always been a little rough around the edges. Psychiatrists would probably attribute it to being brought up in a single-parent household, but Grayson always felt his mom did a great job bringing him up, and he was never really interested in who his father was. Grayson had always been a big kid, bigger than most of kids he grew up with, and that was something that followed him even as he grew older. Kids would often try to prove their own toughness by challenging the biggest kid in the room, so he had to toughen up at a young age. He made a lot of friends, and a lot of enemies growing up.

The Belmont never had much money growing up, so Grayson was taught the value of it pretty early in life. But even when he was old enough, his mother wouldn’t let him work, instead, he was to focus on his studies. So he did odd jobs when he could to make a little money on the side, to help his mother pay the bills whenever he could.

He’s always been a pretty easy-going guy, talkative, easy to open up to, but serious about work and school. Slow to anger, but quick on his feet, and a quick decision-maker. He was able to pick apart situations and information and react accordingly, and great under pressure. In fact, he thrived in those situations.

Grayson could be rather opinionated, and he views the world mostly in black and whites. He inherited his morals from his mother, often helping others to the detriment of his wellbeing. An old soul might say he was bound by honor and his own sense of principals.


These past six months have been tough. You lost your mom, dropped out of college, and found out that the world is a little more ruthless than you were prepared for. But you were never one to wait around, to sit still while things needed doing. You got that from your mom. Work ethic. Hell, the woman literally worked herself to death. It’s a bad time for Grayson.

So, you get a job, waiting tables, numb inside. You’re miserable, but you do it, because you have to. You have no one else, gotta take care of yourself now. Never knew your dad, didn’t wanna know him now. Bills come around, it’s not enough. You start looking for a second job, but it was hard enough getting the job you had, and even that wasn’t enough. Minimum wage, not a livable wage. At least mom’s life insurance covered the funeral.

You hate funerals, you’re a mess, and you’re alone, but you get through it because you have to. Days later you’re taking the train downtown from work and you catch an advert for Apex Implementations on one of the video billboards. You come home to an eviction notice taped to your front door. You need a drink. There’s some cheap beer in the fridge, you grab one and head to the bathroom, your tie and shoes littering the hallway.

You down half the bottle in one go, it tastes about a good as it looks, and that’s not a good thing, but you don’t really care. You’re shocked by the person you see in the bathroom mirror. You have dark circles under your eyes, your hair is the longest it’s ever been in your life, you need to shave, you look like shit. You decide that night.

You clean up in the morning, but you don’t cut your hair. You pull it up so it isn’t in your face, and it doesn’t look bad, just different. You dress, put on your white, wrinkled dress shirt, tie, and head out the door – Towards Apex Implementations
You spend the next few month training with a subsidiary called Waylight Security. Top of your class, an accomplishment, really, but you didn’t think it was anything special. It took a few weeks, but you got out of your shell. You threw yourself into your training though, so you didn’t make many friends, mostly casual associates. But you liked the work, it was more mentally and physically demanding than going to college for a computer science degree, and you got your own place out of the contracts that you signed.

Life was slowly returning to something you considered stable.
The greatest ghost there ever was...
