Roleplay: A-GENTS
The world is in danger. Not just the world, the universe. For enemies of man will always rise up to prey upon that which is weak and break asunder that which is strong, but harder to find are those who would stop them. But now they stand, and they have their reasons. Maybe it is for a sense of belonging that they came, a longing for safety and normality that ties them... maybe their actions speak good while their hearts hold darker goals. Or maybe it is a sense of justice, of a pure ideal, that leads them to stand against all the darkest things of this realm. Whatever their reasons, necessity brings them together. Can they swallow the swirling ruin of their lives and relationships long enough to help all peoples? Will it be enough even then?

Try to keep your pants clean while delving in this epic progressive story. And on, please.

A-GENTS is an Online Role-Playing group based in the deviantART chatrooms founded in early 2011. It covers the events and actions of the various members a world defense orginization known simply as "The A-GENTS."


This show provides examples of:

  • AB Negative: Bianchi has O- blood and there are some other rare boodtypes in the mix.
  • A Date with Rosie Palms: Thanks to Matthew's ability, he's forced to do this. Often.
  • A Father to His Men: Uno fits this to all it's glory. He is the papa and the agents are his children.
  • Afraid of Blood: Susie. To be more specific, she's afraid of her own blood.
  • Afraid of Needles: Luisa (Current 03) is horribly scared of needles.
  • All Gays Are Promiscuous: Subverted, most of the gay couples portrayed are very faithful to their partners.
  • Amazon Brigade: The DIVA-squad.
  • Animal Mecha: Cujo has a touch of this. It goes even into Mechanical Horse territory. On one account he's had three giant robots, each with the appearance of a insect (a spider, a bee and a scarab). Later on, during an attack in Australia he had sent a small army of robotic kangaroos to fight the small group of agents there. What else he can cook up is anyone's guess.
  • Anything That Moves: Karren and Jane.
  • Artificial Limbs: Libby will get something to replace her missing leg. Adelaide is described as getting an artifical arm in the future. Rem is practically defined by this, as his left arm is mechanical.
  • Asexuality: Kasmir and Ainsley have this as their calling cards.
  • Badass and Child Duo: Susie and Lauren.
  • Badass Crew: The entirety of the A-GENTS. But considering what they're forced to fight, it's no suprise.
  • Bad Dreams: Susie gets these so often that you hardly ever see her sleeping. If she does sleep, it's in a public place.
  • The Bartender: A character that everyone is allowed role-play, often with hilarious results. Is often portrayed as The Unintelligible
  • Bee Bee Gun: Susie controls a small swarm of robotic bees. It's her Weapon of Choice.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: Susie and Libby avert this as both are tortured horribly, but are still good people.
  • Beneath the Mask: Lauren and Jane.
  • Berserk Button: Many.
    • Do not call Matthew 'Matty', disgusting, or Darth Vader. Do not continuously mock him either, or screw with his friends. IT WILL NOT END WELL. He's not exactly the biggest fan of sport fighting, either.
    • Don't try and steal any sort of attention from Grin. And if you steal his poker chip... Well, let's just say it's not fun.
    • Don't bring up Morkeal, Koh, or any sort of slavery around Bianchi.
    • Bringing up Alice can create some bad reactions in several A-GENTS, especially Ainsley.
    • Oxana is sensitive about her family and her weight.
    • 78 tends to react badly to Karren's "affectionate nickname"
    • Jane really, really doesn't like Lauren.
    • Morgan presently hates Rem. To the point of destroying the entire bar and injuring several A-GENTS when she ran into him there.
    • Rem hates being reminded that he's a trainee. Also, don't hurt his friends. Though he's also the Berserk Button of the entire medbay...
  • The Berserker: Jane. She doesn't care if she gets hurt as she can put herself back together.
  • Bifauxnen: A-GENT Adelaide could be easily mistaken for a man, based off both her appearance and her behaivior.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Ryonell and most of his pieces and parts fit into this role. You could also include Koh and Alice.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The A-Gents as a whole. It's kinda what they do.
  • Big Eater: Kapila, Connie, and Kytt all fit this.
  • Big Good: Uno.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Jane. Though not many people have caught on to it except Libby and Matthew.
  • Blood Magic: Enyo's ability. She actually can control any sort of blood, and has used it in several different ways. Like casuing heart attacks, stopping people from bleeding out, and creating weapons out of thin air.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: If Susie thinks you're weak or stupid, she will act this way towards you.
  • Break the Cutie: Featured in many, many backstories. Grin has even managed this against 108 using a Pain Extractor.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Matthew has that happen to him allot. Leaving the other A-Gents in vicinity confused.
  • Butch Lesbian: Tristyn. She's a pilot and more than cpable of handing some of the brawlers their asses in a fight.
  • Chandler's Law: If the characters end up stuck in the kitchen doing nothing, someone is bound to get bored and throw in an explosion or two to keep it interesting.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Matthew, thanks to the fact he's constantly creating toxins due to his ability.
    • Averted thanks to Jane
  • The Casanova: Stuart.
  • Casual Danger Dialog: Most enemies will go for this. Of course, considering what some of them are capable of...
  • Chaotic Evil: A few of the Enemies definitely fall into this alignment. Kilk is a Type 1 Chaotic Evil Combat Sadomasochist up to his ears in Evil Feels Good. Grin, on the other hand, is definitely a type 4 Psycho for Hire with a real fondness for tentacle rape. And then there's Alice... Well, most everyone is very, very happy that she's dead.
  • Cheerful Child: Susie.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Lauren. His grin has been known to make a number of other agents uneasy. And for a reason.
  • Children Are Innocent: Susie
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: This has happened to a few characters. The most notable example, however, is Walter a former A-GENT, and next-in-line for Demon Prince. He disappeared without a trace early on in the RP with absolutely zip explanation.
  • Cold Sniper: Kasmir.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: Kilk and Grin are the more extreme examples. Both are highly adept at causing pain in just about anyone they meet. Extra points to Kilk for being able to extend a person's life days past where they would have normally have died from torture.
  • Combat Tentacles: Grin's most used ability. They're twenty feet long, can sprout out poisonous teeth, easily take the equivalent of a few anti-tank rounds, and seem to have minds of their own. Grin usually has a different use in mind for them, though...
  • Combining Mecha: Cujo's first three Mechanical Horse Animal Mecha fit this. During a battle in New York, the three robots had a Transformation Sequence into one bigger robot. Threatening? Yes. But don't worry. It can be averted by a Dude Looks Like a Lady.
  • Creator In-Joke: "Sex. The answer is always sex." Now in video!
  • Cuddle Bug: Izzy, non-biological daughter of Luisa (current 03) and 74, is very affectionate and always attempting to shower people with love.
  • Cute and Psycho: Jane.
  • The Cutie: Izzy. She's sweet, innocent, and really affectionate. She's also 21 and fairly... curvacious.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Kytt, the daughter of Agent Ainsley is known to frequently known to hurt herself and others, and most especially personal belongings of others (such as furniture) in wild escapades of exploration.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Many of the A-Gents are, but the crown goes to Ainsley. Frequent offenders include Arianna, Kasmir and Susie.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: Susie. And it works wonders in getting her out of the medbay or other unpleasant spots.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Jane crosses it and tries to kill herself. She fails in her attempt, leaving her confined in the medbay strapped down and on suicide watch.
  • Diabolus Ex Nihilo: A bane of most RPers, especially if someone goes off track in a mission.
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Tahmi(T28) tends to talk to themselves. A lot.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Morgan Cho. He has seismic powers, which he has been known to use to halt confrontations.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Actually happens more to the Deviants than the characters. Any mention of the word "Lemon" will cause an instant reaction.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male: It is a matter of debate whether Jane sleeping with Kasmir was really consensual or not.
  • Dual Tonfas: Morgan Cho. He has a pair of white tonfas which he carries with him on missions. And when not. How he hides them is a mystery.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: The first time most A-GENTS meet Banchi, he's mistaken for a chick.
  • Ethical Slut: Karren. She tries for everyone in the base at one point or another (including Matthew). For the most part, she does back off if they say no.
  • Everyone Is Bi: While not all the characters are bi, there are a huge number of fangirls playing A-GENTS. If you're not there for the awesome storylines, you're there for the Shipping.
  • Eye Scream: Before joining Agents, Tahmi(T28) had acid poured oh his right eye by scientists to test the Healing Factor part of his ability.
  • Feel No Pain: Rosa. Her ability is 'No Nervous Feedback' while she can't feel pain or exhaustion, she can't taste, smell or blink.
  • Femme Fatale: Artemis.
  • Five-Man Band: The Diva Squad
  • Foe Romance Subtext: Ion and Bianchi. This is a major contributing factor to his Heel-Face Turn.
  • Forgets to Eat: Ainsley. Mostly because he's too engrossed in his work.
  • Freudian Excuse: Lauren uses this as his excuse for being a Jerkass.
  • Friendly Sniper: Mike, but he's pretty ruthless while doing his job.
  • Gas Mask, Longcoat: Matthew wears this, mostly to help protect people from his ability.
  • Genderbender: Tahmi(T28)'s ability is this.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Otto, the clone who Tahmi(T28) escaped with, is actually quite female.
  • Gentleman Thief: Arsene. He can pull of some pretty intricate heists with his steampunk robots...
  • Getting Smilies Painted on Your Soul: Happens more often than you'd think.
  • The Glomp: It happens as much as you'd expect.
  • Glorious Mother Russia: Oxana does fit some typical Russian stereotypes.
  • Good Bad Girl: Karren. Even by A-GENT standtards, she Really Gets Around.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: With very few exceptions (read: Matthew), everyone in A-GENTS is doing someone else.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Luisa and Oxana both possess this. A certain ginger in a top hat is far from immune.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Lee.
  • Hello, Nurse!: Artemis. Quite literally.
  • Heroic BSOD: Lio tends to do a lighter example when faced with the complex.
    • Jane has a much more serious breakdown.
    • Has happened to Rem several times, generally before or after attempting to leave the A-GENCY.
    • Lee completely stopped functioning at the death of his sweetheart Amalia
  • Ho Yay: Happens a lot between 77 and 74.
    • And between Matthew and Lauren, though this is largely unintentional on Lauren's part.
  • I Just Write the Thing: Common excuse for characters actions and storylines.
  • I Let Gwen Stacey Die: Lee thinks he did with Amalia, it wasn't his fault at all.
  • Indy Ploy: A favourite of most A-Gents, but especially for Jane, especially when her carefully detailed plans go awry.
  • Intangible Man: Lauren. He can become Intangible at will and pass through various materials. Minus lead.
  • Jerkass: Lauren. He insults virtually every other person in the A-GENCY, abuses his rank, and punishes the lower-reanked people who try and get back at him. Some notable examples of his Jerkass-ness include constantly making fun of Matthew's failed romances to the point where he snapped, and placing knives in Karren's room because she gave Adelaide a cleaning lesson..
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Sebastian has one, but you have to dig very deep to find it.
  • Kick the Dog: Ainsley has a literal one, where he orders Raphael to kill a puppy the trainee raised as part of his assassin training. Even Uno was angry.
  • The Klutz: Adelaide. Breaks herself and other things so often, you have to wonder why she's an assassin.
    • Rem. Has a tendency to break other people, and entire buildings.
  • Knife Nut: Raphael, always playing with his knives.
  • Lady of War: Luisa and Oxana live and breathe this trope. Extra points to Oxana for being a former military sniper as well.
  • Like Brother and Sister: Adelaide and Bianchi certainly qualify.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Just take a look below, and you'll see what we mean.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Karren and there's a reason why 69 (Tristyn) had her number.
  • Mad Doctor: Morkeal.
  • Mad Love: The only way to describe the love triangle of Karren-Jane-Lauren.
  • Mad Scientist: Cujo.
    • Rem. First thing he ever did as an A-GENT was install a grenade launcher in the coffee machine. But he's a mechanic, not a scientist.
  • Made of Iron: The brawlers have to be this. To date, they've gone toe to toe with a dragon, an Eldritch Abomination, hundreds of zombies, and god only knows what else.
  • Mama Bear: Chantes.
  • Moment Killer: Also Chantes. Pehehehe
  • Morality Pet: Izzy acts as this towards Luisa.
    • Susie for Lauren
  • More Than Mind Control: One of Alice's abilities. She would work on a person's emotions over time to make them fanatically loyal to her. Even though she's dead, all of the former slaves that are still alive still have extensive emotional responses even at the mention of her name.
  • The Mourning After: WordOfGod says that Lee will never love another woman after Amalia's death, to Jane's dismay.
  • The Multiverse: Some of the A-GENTS have actually visited alternate realities themselves.
  • Nanomachines: How DONNA is spying on the A-GENTS base.
  • Neutral Evil: Cujo is this and loves it. He strongly disagrees with the idea that he is a "Lord" to the "King" of the Villain Team-Up.
    • The true “Neutral Evil” tops its hat off to the mysterious mask enforcing the CROW organisation that works as Lucca’s Information and Tax collector go-to-guys. Lead by the man known only as ‘Axel’, the true business man that will offer to do anything for his ‘clients’ so long as it returns twice the value. The riches he reins in are well enjoyed, by him, rather than the barely fair compensation he pays to his employees. Not that they can object, it seems they each have a gun to their head and Axel holds the trigger.
  • The Nicknamer: Uno, Lio, and Susie. Also, Grin has yet to use anyone's real name.
  • Oblivious to Love: Lee doesn't notice Jane is in love with him. If he does, for him it's a case of just friends.
  • Older Than They Look: Ainsley, due to his ability.
    • Franco and Uno as well.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Franco and Kaleb.
  • Papa Wolf: Though not her father, Lauren will rip the faces off those who hurt Izzy.
  • The Pollyanna: Susie is still cheerful despite having a horrific history
  • Posthumous Character: Alice.
  • Power Incontinence: Matthew suffers from this. Not a good thing, considering what his ability is.
  • Power Perversion Potential: Jin's electrical abilities have been shown to be put to... stimulating purposes at times.
  • Pregnant Badass: Oxana is a soon-to-be mama. She's also one of the best snipers in the A-GENTS.
  • Professional Killer: The Assassin Class
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Grin is a one of the best assassins you can find in our universe, and has yet to fail a real job yet. He also refers to his tentacles as his "Babies," gives out nicknames to everyone he meets, and generally acts like a complete ditz. Also, most people see Kilk as one of these.
  • Put on a Bus: There's a folder full of inactive A-GENTS, and a lot of main characters that have been completely sidlined, like Huey (A penguin Matthew had as a pet.)
    • Some do manage to come back, though.
  • Really Gets Around: Karren. She's even trying for Matthew of all people.
    • She got him in the end.
    • Jane is also another character that gets around.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Lauren gets a hell of a speech from Kapila when he's finally confronted for his Jerkass ways. See Crowning Moment of Awesome.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Lauren and Jane planned on doing this together, but ended very badly for them.
  • Rule of Drama
  • Rule of Funny
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: Kasmir. Undeniably one of the best snipers in the A-GENCY, and very, very loyal to his superiors. He has No Social Skills.
  • Sensual Spandex: Basic A-GENT attire.
  • The Silent Bob: Chantes fits this with flying colors.
  • The Sleepless: 207 quite literately since it's her power.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: 150.
  • Spider Tank: Many of the created drones are in this form. Including the mini-M Cs to the MC Goliath
  • Split Personality: Emily.
  • Stepford Smiler: Rell smiles all the time, despite whatever his feelings are. Jane is a subtle Type C.
  • Straight Gay: Jin/Ion. He's a complete Badass, with more than enough scars to prove it. He also regularly sleeps with 54.
  • Stuffed into the Fridge: Amalia was killed off by Enyo.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Matthew has tried to imagine a naked Lauren at times to try and clear his thoughts when confronted with certain female members of the A-GENTS. Much to his dismay and horror, it has never helped.
  • Stupid Sexy Friend: Jane doesn't even find Ainsley sexy, but can't stop thinking about him in a sexual way. This is mostly due to her having the inability to seperate friends from lovers.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Luisa
  • Squishy Wizard: In their partnership, Rell is this, while Ainsley takes the fighting role. They both can get pretty squishy though if the big guns come out. That's why we have brawlers.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: It's an internet RP in a chatroom. People need to talk to keep things moving.
  • Technically a Smile: Ainsley if he EVER smiles.
  • Teleport Spam: Mike can do this.
  • There Are No Therapists: Though there is the in-game therapist Dr Jubel, hardly anyone sees him, despite some desperately needing it.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: It's difficult to find Luisa without an apple or Lauren without cereal. Sebastian, Matthew, Lee, and Rem have their tea.
  • Trash of the Titans: Describes both Adelaide's and Arianna's rooms.
  • Tsundere: Oxana is a type A Tsundere.
    • Adelaide is also a type A
    • Morgan. Very violent Tsundere.
  • Uncanny Valley: Susie gets very creeped out by Aida because of this.
  • Unflinching Walk: A Bomber staple.
  • Villain Team-Up: This actually happens more than you'd think. And it has always been very successful. Koh and Morkeal in particular have teamed up repeatedly to devestating effect several times.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Jane and Ainsley being a Type 1 example. They slap and insult each other and bicker constantly; but Jane will care for him and Ainsley will look out for her in his own way.
  • Walking Wasteland: Part of Matthew's ability. Just him breathing unprotected is incredibly lethal.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Despite having powers that more or less amount to a Phoenix Down on the battlefield, Rell can be incapacitated by only a modest amount of water. And that crap be everywhere.
  • Whip It Good: Karren's main weapon is a whip.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Bianchi is this. Doesn't help with the confusion people have about his gender.
  • Wrench Wench: Scarrlett. Susie is turning into one.
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: As this is a chat RP, A-GENTS is this trope.
  • Yandere: Jane.
