Characters: Destine Enormity

Messiah Complex

Aidric Carter

Leader of the Messiah Complex and the most wanted man in the city, Aidric is trying for all intents and purposes to be the standard hero. A charismatic man and a powerful fighter, Aidric battles for truth, justice and all that is good and right in the world. Of course, he's also a hobo without a job and to say he's quirky would be putting it nicely. The man is childish at best, reckless and an absolute headache to many around him... but he's determined to save "his" city and that has to count for something, right?

Tropes:

Antoinette Richard

The owner of Cafe Richard where Aidric lives and where MC has chosen to locate their base. She is a saavy businesswoman, a hard worker, and does not take crap from anyone. She is cold, sarcastic, and doesn't open up easily. However, deep down, she cares deeply for everyone in the group. This is especially true for Clara and Aidric. Her power is to manipulate the wind, though she isn't much of a fighter.

Tropes:

Clara Mcculty

Substitute Gym teacher at SIN Academy, Member of Messiah Complex, and Aidric's personal sidekick, Clara is a ball of energy. She tends to just go with the flow of things, agreeing to whatever Aidric comes up with. She's a bit brighter than she seems and is a talented archer. She has power over plants, though she tries not to rely on that too much when fighting.

Tropes:

Dorian Smith

Tropes:

James Kincaid

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Katie (Ruel) Harris

The Badass

Tropes:

Lamont Price

Lamont Price, a normal with a special talent for making his own life forevermore complicated current is working the the Messiah Complex for reasons so simplistic that they hardly seem believable. He's quick to anger, and survives off his every-man instinct to get through the more difficult spots- though it's safe to say he needs to rely on others and swallow his pride time to time.

Tropes:

Maitho Savat

A Normal born to Normals- not to mention, blind- Maitho has no illusions when it comes to his lot in life. It's an attitude that begs the question of just why he's decided to join the Messiah Complex in the first place. His true passion, however, is cultivating poisonous plants.

Tropes:

Noah Wilder

Aidric's second in command. A dutiful boy, he is good at keeping his calm and coming up with plans on the fly. He's cool and quite popular, also Emily's ex. He and Clara have a close, sibling-like relationship.

Tropes:

Resa Jones

One of the younger members of the Messiah Complex, Resa is a former student of SIN, and is easily identified by her messy silver hair (or premature grey) and pair of enormous grey wings.She's a little bitchy when the mood takes her, and prone to sarcasm, but is otherwise pretty friendly.

Tropes

Ria Ackerly

Ackerly is an adrenaline junky, a former Wise Man who switched sides when the Messiah Complex started to win.

Tropes:


The Wise Men

The almighty rulers of Arcadia, the Wise Man is a council formed by the most influential and powerful people in the city, whose individual jobs keep it running. Officially there are 24 members, each one represented by a letter from the Greek alphabet, with Wise Man Omega as the leader. Since a coup was pulled in the council years prior to the beggining of the story, there hasn't been anyone to sit on the chair of Omega, and the remaining members work on equal grounds of power. For how much longer this balance will remain is anyone's guess.

Tropes that apply for the whole council:

Wise Man Α, Dimitri Ener

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Wise Man Σ, Giovanni Del Arcobaleno

Giovanni (or "Arco", as he likes being called) is one of the youngest Wise Men to date, sitting on the chair of Sigma. Obtaining his position by inheriting it from his father, he also obtained control of Tartarus, Arcadia's political prison, where all of those whose "ideas" clash with what the council envisioned are sent to. If that wasn't bad enough for them, Warden Arco just happens to be a sadist who abuses the crap out of the inmates for kicks regularly. Thought usually presenting himself as a cheerful, rather effeminate playboy who only wants to enjoy life, Arco is cunning, manipulative and ultimately only works for himself.

Tropes:

Wise Man Λ, Mama Lulu

One Lucille Gorski, under the alias Lulu later to become Mama Lulu, opened a high class bordello on the edge on the Slums to cater to other Users and their sexual needs, hiring Normals and down on their luck Users as her “pets.” Through this business, she was able to make some powerful connections, and learn a few tantalizing secrets, which eventually led to her becoming a Wiseman herself.

Tropes:

  • Band of Brothels: This was how her empire began and continues to function.
  • Cool Old Lady: Depends on who you ask, but some do actually consider her this.
  • Cool Pet: Her leopards Morris and Dorris certainly qualify.
  • Harmful to Minors: See above. Also was the one to raise Sebastian Moliere... which might explain a few things.
  • High-Class Call Girl: In her youth.
  • Mrs. Robinson: Along with her kink for Normals, she also has a preference for young men anywhere from 16 to 24.


The Elite

Alexandra Flores

Alexa is the insect-controlling scientist in charge of studying the differences between Normals and Power Users - in order to serve the Wiseman's propaganda mill.

Tropes:

Emily Pennington

Emily was one of the top students in SIN Academy, a member of the Elite, and it's been mentioned that she seems to be right on track for a position in the Wise Men. She has even become Arco's assistant. She's a Teleporter and, when injured badly enough, her power switches to telekinesis. Despite how she presents herself as a proper young lady, she is very unstable and very, very disturbed. She is also obsessed with her classmate, fellow Elite member, and ex boyfriend Noah. Almost all her free time is spent stalking the unfortunate young man. Woe be to any young lady that tries to get involved with him on her watch....

Tropes:

Gabriel Lazriel

Gabe is your average loather of all Normals who wishes that they would all be exterminated. He controls LIGHTNING!

Tropes:

Morgan Hunter

Morgan is a busy woman. Not only does she own and work at her own bar- Sherrera's- in Thea's Plaza, she is also a member of the Elite and is currently attending college for her Master's Degree in Business. When she's not doing any of those, she is busy doing charity work in the Slums. Her goal is to become a Wiseman and change the system from the inside out, but even she knows how hard of a job that is going to be.

Tropes:

  • The Bartender: Naturally.
  • Conflicting Loyalty: While she fights on the side of the Elite, she's still determined to keep as many of her friends within the Messiah Complex alive as possible.
  • Keeping Secrets Sucks: Especially when your boyfriend is an interrogator and your partner in the field is willing to do whatever is necessary to keep the peace.
  • Strictly Professional Relationship: With Nathaniel.
  • Tomboy: Actually quit competing in swing dance competitions because they asked her to start wearing a dress.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: Has this conflict with herself whenever facing the Messiah Complex or its individual members.
  • Triple Shifter: Try and think of any particular day of the week or even hour that she isn't working. Go on, we dare you.

Nathaniel Webb

Tropes

Valentine Svarc

A shape-shifting Master of Disguise, Valentine has a strong moral compass - it's a pity that it generally points south.

Tropes:

XIII, "The Watchdog".

A woman with no past, no emotional attachments, and no mercy. Thought she is "officially" a part of the Elite, with authority on par with the Grand Justicar himself, XIII is the eyes, ears, and crushing hands of the Wise Men, the thirtheenth to occupy the position. She's the only non-member to observe their meetings, and takes her orders directly from them, and she never hesitates when it comes to execute them. XIII's position in the Elite has no official name, but the regular soldiers refer derogatively to her as "Watchdog". Her power is the healing factor, which coupled with cybernetic implants that make her stronger, faster, and more resistant than the avarage person, makes her an implacable force.

Tropes:


SIN Academy Students

Anya Mori

Saved by Dimitri from a sudden fire, the girl now owes the man her life.Working her way into the ranks of the Elite, she'll do whatever she can to be of use (Buuut since Dimitri rarely calls on her personally, she tends to take jobs from random others within the city).Protect what's important to you, since everyone is simply protecting what's important to them!

Tropes:

Aryil Caeren

Short and soft-spoken, Aryil is girl who desires nothing more than to leave SIN Academy in one piece. Bullied by her peers and used as target practice on a good day, her healing powers tend to give her more grief than actual good. She's appalled by the treatment Normals receive, but is considering joining the Elite anyways to ensure that her family and friends will remain safe.

Tropes:

Laura Dubois

A shy, nervous, tall girl with the power to transform herself into a tree and talk to plants. She has little to no contact with her family since joining SIN Academy, and is Aryil's best friend. She wants to become an Elite solely so she can try to make her family's life better and because she would be treated better herself.

Tropes:

Mai Suzuki

Sweet natured SIN student, doesn't like using her powers too much.

Tropes:

Alexander Darnell

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Fisher King

A general description about the character's personality, motivations, etc.

Tropes:

Sven Kivela

Perpetually on edge and always ready for a fight, Sven is often finding or causing trouble. He is busy trying to find his place within the city of Arcadia, and having worked for two Wisemen and being taken under the wing of a powerful business mogul, he's well on his way to achieving that end. If only he could manage to get that temper under control, he might go even further.

Tropes:


Other Characters

His wife died many years ago due to the nature of her powers and his daughter and son-in-law—Aryil's parents—were killed in an Elite raid on Acheron's Run. Behind his kindly self is a man desiring nothing more than revenge, but he's just lying in wait for now...

Tropes:

Corinne Zhang

A 20 year old robotics geek, Corinne was abandoned by her parents when the war hit. A woman who doesn't want to grow up, Corinne's more than happy to just keep on trucking, partying, and generally being annoying as hell. She joined the Messiah Complex because it sounded fun—but only time will tell if she'll regret her decision.

Tropes

Ricardo Cordova

SIN Academy's easygoing head nurse and partial supporter of the Messiah Complex. Ricardo doesn't care for the MC's aggressive promotion of its ideals, but when his stepdaughter's powers fail to manifest, he begins to rethink his stance on Normals' Rights...
