Name: Julien Halgrove

Age: 19

Appearance: Image

Outfit/Gear: Dressed in hoodies or t-shirts - most of them emblazoned with slogans that call out for a revolution - Julien is almost always seen in red. He's the quintessential scruffy teenager, with ripped jeans and Converse or combat boots. He's highly recognisable for the red scarf that he usually has wrapped around his neck, especially while on missions; it's often used to cover his lower face. He carries a switchblade and simple handgun, but rarely uses them if he can avoid it, and a lighter, which he'll happily use as often as possible. Julien's always down for a spot of arson. Usually, he also has at least one pack of cigarettes on him.

Skills/Abilities, or Job: Leader of the Dragons; politics student. Works in a bookstore for a part-time job. Julien can be charming when he wants to be, and has a way with words; he can deliver passionate speeches at the drop of a hat. He also seems to literally brighten rooms when he enters them, strengthening light sources - he carries around a lighter for this reason, as in dark rooms, he can lighten them drastically by strengthening the light it emits. Light seems to follow Julien around, and there are even times when he seems to glow just a little. It's easily write-offable as an optical illusion, though.
He's a decent shot with a gun, but not particularly above average, after training in shooting a handgun mostly just to be able to defend himself. He's tall but slight, and if he could ever be bothered to get into knife fights, he'd be deadly.

Alliance: Dragons

Personality: Julien is a rebel at heart. He's always resisted authority in the search of freedom, and believes fiercely in pursuing equality for all, more than prepared to make sacrifices for the greater good. He's strongheaded and can come across as incredibly unapproachable, and uncaring about those who surround him. However, that isn't really true at all, and he adores those he considers close to him, and will find ways to make them feel important and loved, even if he's not very good at demonstrating affection in the traditional ways.

Backstory: With a firmly working class background, a troublesome child from the start, Julien was raised with a strong awareness of the injustices of the world. Laurent, Julien's older brother by seven years, was pulled into the Greys' world when Julien was seven, and killed in a deal gone wrong a couple of years later. It was not Julien's first taste of wanting revenge, but it was the first time he'd be willing to go to such lengths to achieve it. He joined the Dragons young, at about twelve, working more or less only as an errand boy; his parents were absent much of the time, occupied by work, and Julien's activities were kept quiet from them. Through a mixture of being charming, pretty, and angry, Julien worked his way up the ranks, becoming leader at the age of 18 when the previous leader was killed. He cares greatly about taking the Greys out of power and restoring justice, fairness, and equality to the city and its government.
Alongside his criminal career, Julien believes firmly in the accessibility of education for all, and the pursuit of a non-violent world: he has continued his educational career, living a double life as a politics student at the local university. In the long term, it's very possible that, once the Dragons have taken over, he intends to install himself in charge of the city's government, leading its people to a brighter future.

Name: Loki Axsword

Age: 12

Appearance: (placeholder sketch for now)
Generally, Loki is able to pass off as a boy or girl in appearance, given how she often carries an stoic expression.
Her eyes and facial features have a striking similarity to Dr Loke Reimsteig.

Outfit/Gear: Unless told, Loki prefers wearing casual smart clothing. Looking not suspicious is important, as well as having the mobility she needs.

As it is hard for her age to carry firearms and avoid suspicion, Loki only carries around a pen. It has been specifically designed to write normally with one end, and other part of the tip can be used for stabs.

She always carries around a small sample of pills, issued by her training school for missions. The main reason is so that there would always be a last bullet saved for the escape from a worst case scenario.

Skills/Abilities, or Job:
Loki’s ‘job’ is an apprentice bodyguard. Female bodyguards have advantages of being favoured more by female clients, as well as there are situations where they attract less suspicion.

Her supernatural ability is being able to land from and jump to high places. Her current maximum height is 5 meters, though it may increase as she gets older. This helps particularly with her mobility, coupled with the parkour lessons she has started taking.

Loki’s strengths include judo, and using her ‘stab pen’ or short blade. She has been taught how to handle a gun but has an accuracy of 4/10 due to her lack of experience.

Alliance: Other (I plan on having her join either later on, depending on whom she interacts with. Hopefully as a bodyguard for the leader of that group. )

Stoic and polite. Loki always refers to elders with respect, as how she was taught at her training school. With the mind of a bodyguard drilled in her mind, she would always prioritize the life of her client over everything else. Though she knows it is a weakness and a flaw, she may hesitate when it comes to her mother.

While she seems oddly mature for her age, she still carries slivers of childish naivety. This can be shown from her disdain from working long hours, or the frustration when she can’t solve simple math problems, and the small thrill of collecting candy and cards.

She has an emotional dependence on the drug that she carries. Loki truly believes that there are situations that could be worse than death. Thus, if she realises she does not have her ‘escape to the afterlife’ pills with her, she can get extremely agitated.

S-sorry. I’m a little tired, I’ll take a nap first, ok?

It was the fifth lie her mother had told today. Loki didn’t say anything, but continued finishing the rest of her dinner as she heard the door click to a close.

It was almost like the routine as years ago. Monday to Friday, she would live and train at the bodyguard training academy, learn her reading/writing lessons. Saturdays and Sunday mornings she would come home. The only difference was her lies became more frequent.

It first started was when she had been having nightmares for a month. Then when someone had broken into their home on a weekday. It worsened to the point of hallucinations, or mistakenly taken Loki for another person.

She never heard the name, but she briefly wondered whether it was her father that her mother saw. Loki could only guess, that her father might have done something that betrayed Delta Axsword.

And finally…. The white-haired girl glanced towards the kitchen bin. Three weeks ago it had been full of photographs and letters. Her mother had been stalked. The culprit had been found already but…

‘Why can’t it just… why can’t I live a normal life?” During her moments of fits she had once said, muffled by the shut door. “Why can’t I love and be loved like everyone else?”

Shaking her thoughts away from the thought of it, Loki brought her empty plate to the sink. She stopped, eyes lingering on the small jar next to the sink, heart almost clenching. Her mother never forgot to buy her favourite star-shaped candy every week.

The same mother that was tormented by the accumulation of misfortunes in her life. Like a hostage.

Maybe finding her a friend might help, Loki thought as she sat on the couch. Flicking the television to low volume, she pondered the idea. Someone without Loki’s face to remind her of unpleasant of people. A friend that could stay with her everyday, like a flatmate. One that could protect her mother.

That sounds more like a bodyguard, which Loki could not afford hire. The only other she could think of was …

Loki palmed the very small bottle of pills in her pocket. For her it was a sense of comfort in any dangerous situation, but it wasn’t for her mother to use. Absolutely not….

Perhaps… that ‘Iocane’ could be something more affordable. She heard very briefly when passing the police station. An illegal drug; one that soothes the mind. She had an idea of what the eventual side-effects would be…. But maybe, just maybe, a life of non-stop torments is worse than peaceful death?

.

Name: Jester
At work he uses a fake ID, “Caim Devereaux”, that high-end members at Grey would know. He often uses “Jester” when communicating with underground criminals.

Age: 31

Appearance: (placeholder sketch for now)
He looks identical to Dr Loke Reimsteig, though perhaps a little older.

Outfit/Gear:
He carries no weapons with him. He carries several mobile phones with him instead, as he tends to use different phone numbers for different types of associates.

Skills/Abilities, or Job:
“Admin? Not at all, I only have two types of jobs mostly. Second verifying the intel we get, then chatting/bribing the police. So just an Greys’ errand man that’s good with numbers.”

Grey’s informant and test bio-engineer at a Pharmaceutical company that develops painkiller medicine.

Anyone or anything that comes in physical contact with Jester can be electrical-shocked, at times to the point of killing another within 20 seconds. However, there is always a ‘cost’ for this. Jester’s right hand has a number tattoo. Each use will decrease the number by one (or two if it’s up to the intensity to kill someone). Once the number reaches zero, his ‘memory’ is reset, and the tattoo number turns back to 30.

(I will only have Jester using high-intensity electrocution on NPCs. At the start of the RP, the number would be 7. He doesn’t use this ability very often as he just doesn’t really enjoy getting involved in physical fights most of the time)

Alliance: Grey

“Hm... No matter how much you talk to me about these ‘memories’, I can’t think of myself as this person. Not in the slightest.”

His personality varies slightly from what he experiences after every memory reset. However, there are a couple of consistencies.Jester always retains his curious nature about the world. The other that he has no attachment to the past, always being distracted by his thirst for hunger of knowledge. He doesn’t see his ability’s side effect as a curse, but rather as a means for him to be reborn.

His current person is somewhat of a man modest in speech. At times he has a playful attitude, particularly finding amusement in dark humour jokes. Despite the relationships he’s invested in the Greys, there is always the thought of that there is an end to everything. All in the moment he ‘resets’.

Seven years ago:

He opened his eyes, slowly getting up. All around him papers were on the floor. By the corner of the room of shelves there were some broken glass and bits of mechanical parts. Most importantly, next to him were two people with burnt skin. The clothes were still intact though of a much darkened colour. Leaning a little to the side, he grimaced at the pain on his left arm then at the two people. They weren’t breathing and their bodies were starting to get cold.

Slowly standing up, he dusted off his coat. If it wasn’t for some black smudges, it was almost white.

Odd. He had no idea what his name was. Or his age, or what year it was. All he could tell was that he was male from his bony hands. And the tattoo with number “30”.... Nothing comes to mind about it.

Casually stepping over one of the bodies, he sat at a chair, and adjusted the reading light by the desk. There was a flip phone lying beside a few bottles, several notebooks and a tablet. He hummed, squinting at the phone's keyboard under the lighting. Markings were darker on the keys 5, 6 and 0.

After some trials, he unlocked the phone lockscreen with the combination 0-5-0-6. Whoever had been using this phone had quite a number of photos but not many memos. There was only one, with an image file attached. He recognised the photo of the tattoo and the hand, and read on the description.

“I see….” he murmured. “I must have ‘reset’ just now.” He glanced at the two bodies lying on the floor, then at the parts and wires and bottles on the desk. He knew what they were, but he couldn’t think of the designer for these bombs to be himself.

Since I’m just reborn, he thought as he took off the coat he was wearing. I should find a new ID. There should definitely be someone in town. Someone single, with no relatives or friends to verify his identity.

As he walked out he dropped the phone on the floor. “And I guess I’ll be needing a new one of those, too.”

1. Dr Loke Reimsteig was the developer for the drug “Iocane”. (effects for Iocane include hallucinations, causing people to switch to a dazed and rather relaxed manner. Over consumption would cause numbness and poisoning in the artery system.)

2. In the past 10 years he has had 2 resets.
