[up] Well, I'm saving the names Red, and Black/White (split personality) for later. Actually, I really just have no idea what to do with them. (Any Suggestions?) Also, I love Gurren Lagann, and serial escalation is one of my favorite things.

Characters I have named for a very silly project about dreams n' childhood n' shit.

  • Nod, Prince of Dreams: The protagonist I think? An imaginary friend who claims to be the son of the night. A capricious, egotistical, spoilt little boy.
  • Nick the Knack: An cynical artful dodger type of character. Inspired by Mack the Knife.
  • Little Georgia Blue: A character based and named on a friend and workmate of mine who regularly wear and dyes her hair blue. A voice of reason.

[up][up]Well, at the top of my head, I could see Red being the Wrong Genre Savvy guy who thinks he's the main character of the "story"(because, you know, red = hero in Japanese culture, I think), and constantly opposes the Anti-Student Council, because he thinks they're the villain. Additionally, make him "have a thing" for one of the ASC.(I'm too lazy to type out anti-student council, so its gonna be ASC).

As for Black/White, I can see them either being a guy/girl split personality(in one body), or one of them being the original "spirit", while the other is a very strong "spirit" that constantly switches possession of the body with the first "spirit".(Replace spirit with whatever you want.) Well, just some ideas in a nutshell.

So...by serial escalation...will it eventually PIERCE THE HEAVENS?

[up]That's a rather interesting cast you have there. "Imaginary friend" protagonists, I haven't found a lot of them. So far it almost sounds like a Darker and Edgier dreams n' childhood story...

Well the very basic idea of the story thus far is about a senile old woman who shares her childhood fantasies and dreams with her grandchildren as a series of bedtime stories. It ultimately ends with the woman dying in peace as she holds her friend in her arms. Yeah...was in a very dark mood when I came up with it, but the image of that scene in my head was just too beautiful that I had to try and make it work.

Damn, that's impressive(Sincerity Mode). The story isn't as epic or grand as some of the others, so it stands out compared to all the stories I've seen so far.(Not that the other story casts are bad, but this one DOES somewhat stand out, you can't deny it right?)

I hope I get a chance to read it. Bittersweet Ending I love 'em.

Wow, that's actually what I was already thinking but slightly different. I was gonna have Red be someone with an actual name like John, but he uses Red as a bootleg Alias and pretends to be important to the plot. Being wrong genre savvy is a really good idea though! Black/White was gonna be a Ranma 1/2 style genderswap character. His/Her body and hair color would change depending on the personality.

As for Serial Escalation, it'd be the same thing (piercing) but in reverse. Telling you more would spoil the plot (unless you're fine with spoilers.)

[up][up]Nah, I'd rather just wait and read it myself. And the Ranma 1/2 multi-personality multi-body idea is interesting if done right. I haven't read a lot of gender-change stories, so I don't really know what advice to give, but good luck with it XD.

Yeah, having Red as the deconstruction of The Hero trope works strangely well in this kinda story. and Piercing in reverse? O.o, that's one thing I look forward to finding out what you mean. Is it as in piercing through the grounds? Through hell? Or just through the South Pole?

[up] Ah, no problem. Just stating what I thought about it. Do tell me if you get the story done.

Started classes again this week, decided I'd update the list a little plus some slight edits to existing entries.

Chisame "Christine" Sakamoto- Jovial young woman with sharp reflexes and a new Sector member. She joined up with a "Sector" after some encouragement from Crosse in hopes of adding some meaning to her life and giving back to the city of Stronghold in some way. Chisame has come to the realization that with each fight she's found herself starting to enjoy it. She wields a folding sword to complement her arsenal of hand-to-hand and free running skills, making her more speed oriented. Something of a visual learner, she can imitate physical techniques just by watching to some degree of success.

Edward Crosse- Chisame's hard-working friend and mentor, a talented fighter skilled in the sword, hand-to-hand combat, and Fire elemental magic. Has a strained relationship with his father, the company president of Horizon Security who has some doubts about his son not staying with the family business. The director of the Redemption sector asked him to scout around for new members with potential, and he started attending Chisame's school for that purpose as well as getting her to help in his endeavors.

Maki Koehler Nakazawa- The half-Japanese half-Gleitrolle childhood friend of Chisame. Appearing cold at first, she can be a whole lot nicer, however she isn't always as "composed" as she appears. She is a full-contact Ice mage as well as a powerful hand-to-hand combatant. The other half of her heritage is a race prided on its large number of magic users and talent in its use, with some of the best mages in the world(full contact and traditional) hailing from it.

Tetsuya Fujikawa- A slightly irritable but skilled martial artist, and close friends with Chisame and Maki. Once bullied as a child, he isn't afraid to stand up for his classmates and strangers and give their tormentors well deserved comeuppance. Fights with martial arts taught to him by his stepfather adapted to street fighting and other realistic scenarios. Tetsuya hits hard and isn't afraid to use more "pragmatic" moves in high-stakes fights. He and Maki sometimes fight alongside each other when out in the city, fighting for themselves, for others, or for a band of street kids they saved last year. Unlike the others he relies very strongly on his raw physical abilities (but refuses to use weapons) thanks to mana fortifying his body, preferring not to bother with most magic or weapons in general.

Alex Benson- The energetic half-Japanese best friend of Tetsuya. He can handle himself in a fight, but rather dislikes violence. Alex is aware of the Sector involvement of his friends and classmates, so he takes to the streets to get intel for their cases when he can.

Younha Baek- A loud Korean upperclassman and friends with Chisame and her group. A young experienced Sector member who has gone on various missions alongside Edward, as well as being rather close friends with him. Lately, she's found herself at odds with Chisame due to the younger girl being assigned as his new partner by the Director. She is a Human Weapon of Terran and Sigma herritage, skillful in the use of her "takeover limbs" preferring to sprout the blades from the palms of her hands.

Dr.Stillman- Redemption's middle-aged veteran doctor who can treat a wide variety of injuries and illnesses and perform minor in-house surgeries if the moment calls for it. Sometimes the Sector members, experienced or otherwise, come to the Doctor for a little advice. The good doctor knows his stuff, although whether the same applies to fighting has yet to be seen by many.

Alena Mercer- The chatty and playful traceur mentor of the Redemption Sector. Known for deadly dodging and fights bare-handed more often than not. She instructs new members in practical unarmed combat as well as how to escape pursuers and travel efficiently on foot via parkour, whether it be on rooftops or the streets. Although she is very patient and slow to anger, when she does lose her temper her fury is quite tranquil, making it all the more frightening.

Nikolas Rockwell- A well humored gunslinger as well as another of the Redemption mentors, formerly an apprentice to a traveling assassin. He teaches the newbies how to handle firearms as well as how to adapt to multi-combatant encounters with help from Nana. Nikolas is one of several members who has prior military experience, due to his involvement in a special wartime project several years ago.

Priska Titavio Kalakos- Another of the mentors, Priska isn't very talkative but can be very snarky when she does. She wields a heavy blade in tandem with extremely powerful Ice and Force magic. As a teenager she was as an orphan torn from the streets by a (now defunct) twisted pharmaceutical company and unwillingly subjected to a wide variety of experiments and drugs that would allow her body's mana to finally flow as well as increase her magical and physical capabilities to allow her the use of astounding spells and raw power. The experiments were conducted to produce super-soldiers capable of astounding physical feats and the use of uncommon and deadly magic. The successful subjects would then be sold to foreign militaries or anyone with enough bank to be used as weapons. Around 16 subjects out of the initial 21 are known to still be alive, including Priska. Surprisingly enough (or not), Priska's family on the mother's side have a history of ancestors and descendents that are either unable to use magic or can't harness their mana in any manner whatsoever. One of her most recent ancestors was Icarus Titavio, one of the founders of modern Sectors in the West. While for years she hated herself for her great power, it was only a matter of time before she came to terms with this gift and resolved to make the most of it.

Cassius Claymore- A gadgeteer genius of sorts from the Kingdom of Hanover in the Northwest and part of the Sector's repair crew. He's often out in the workshop, fixing up weapons for the other members and tinkering with older model weapons for kicks, all the while drunk off the whiskey and rum he keeps at his workbench. Cassius is very laid-back, so sometimes members come in just to chill in the workshop during their off-time, the reason for his relaxed nature being that he usually never participates in direct combat, instead relegated to the side lines. However, that isn't to say Cassius is a weakling either, he's quite good with a wrench.

Nana Adanju- A mild-mannered girl around Chisame's age, from the hot Southeastern country of Khamala. Her specialty is the difficult and uncommon magic of summoning. She often works together with Nikolas and obligingly helps train Chisame by using her relics to summon warrior and beast familiars each with different skills that she must defend against.

Maya Shigoro- The first major antagonist, an unstable multiform Human Weapon with the rare power to duplicate the abilities of her victims and opponents by stabbing them in the gut and absorbing the necessary amount of mana. Her gauntlet, launcher, and segmented whip forms were taken from other H Ws she bested in combat. During her first encounter with Chisame she toys around with the latter before impaling her in an attempt to steal Chisame's mana induced reflexes. By a stroke of luck the duplication doesn't work, and Edward and Alena arrive and fight her off with comparatively more ease forcing Maya to flee as the two had called the cops as well.

rollin' on dubs
"After Hours-Verse": After the 1960's, some parapsychologists started to find evidence of psychic powers. At the same time people appeared that had abilities most would call superhuman. This being the 1960's and early 70's, gas was poured on the fires of history. From the oil crisis to the fall of the wall, history ran a very familiar course to our world. There was a Cuban missile crisis, an actor became president, AIDS was a tragedy and the Cubs still haven't won the world series.

However, laws had to adapt to the new powers of the mind. Heroes patrol the skies and supervillains rob banks and plan mega-heists. There is a space station in orbit that houses 1, 00 astronauts. Supersonic flights are common and Bill Clinton was impeached. Bush won Flordia after locking in the Esper vote. Despite the Esper Guild's leadership endorsement, Mc Cain would lose to a Senator from Illinois. Mutants and espers tired of a decade of war in the Middle East.

Humans fear mutants and have pitted espers against them. The espers remember the bitter fight for civil rights and view humans as greedy and mutants as unable to control their powers. Mutants are tired of being blamed for a few criminals and try to remind espers we are struggling together. They haven't forgiven the Esper Guild for Clinton's impeachment.

Flash forward to 2010 in the Sun City of El Paso Texas:

Allan Moore: No, not that one. Parents are prominent Espers from the "Blood Raven" group in Oklahoma/North Texas/Kansas/ The Dakotas. Working as a freelance P.I. until the heat dies down from a noodle incident. Betrothed to Zenaida, Allan wants his parents to call it off. His parents (and the Blood Ravens) have other plans.

Mary Sue Lebowski: Genki girl, she's a mutant (catgirl-naga hybrid). Can’t see why mutants, espers and norms are fighting, does find the pressure on espers to have familes "creepy". She's Allan's assistant since the job market for mutants without a college education is limited.

Edward Marks: Leader of the El Paso esper group. A former member of the "Killing Doves" esper movement. He's now a white-collar manager but under the surface the revolutionary is still there. Doesn’t like Mary Sue (calls her the squeak toy), but is good friends with Allan Moore. In love with goth-emo cross-dressing skater Jess “Jazz” Jones.

Jess “Jazz” Jones: 21 year old emo boy who got his esper powers at the age of 17 (late for an esper but his parents were normals. Gets some flack for dating "the boss". Edward doesn't care but Jess has punched out a few epsers for making jokes. He is a student at UTEP.

Benjamin Peter Waters: Former marine, now a patriot soldier at Fort Bliss. He just returned from Korea. Esper, was dating Zenaida.

Zenaida Laetitia Rossi: a ██, her mother was a ██ her father an esper. ██ eyes (blue with contacts), dyes her hair black. Esper and channler and ██. She fears going insane like all esper-██. In love with Ben, betrothed to Allan via her father and grandparents. Has ██, complete. The Killing Doves want her to have kids ASAP since she's high on the esper scale.

The Green Penguin: superhero. Mutant with wings and a green costume. The mask is a holdover from her mentor's old costume. Reporters said his mask made him look like a Penguin. The Esper Guild's policy is to avoid her. The Police and FBI are supposed to arrest her, but like Batman they put up with her because she's fought several "villains" and rouge espers.

The Purple Moose: sworn enemy of the Green Penguin. Styles himself after Al Capone, he runs lots of organized crime operations. Had avoided or turned many attempts by the Esper Guild to break up his empire. The Mutant Mafia has him on retainer.

The Foggy Bottom Boys: In the backrooms of Washington, there are groups trying to "save" the republic. They love democracy and would hate to see it destroyed by well meaning heroes, villains or an overreaching Esper Guild. They are working on a solution and will soon give it a test run.

Just Another Troper
This thread seems like fun, so I'll just post the characters I've been making for a story I'm writing for kicks. My story is kind of a weird one, the story kicks off with the usual Doomed Hometown with the "Hero" witnessing the "villain's" soldiers wandering around the ruins. Due to the soldiers sense of fashion, (They wear completely black armor with very scary faceplate's, though this is because of a belief in practicality as well as pride) the "Hero" assumes they are the ones who destroyed his life. And so the Hero goes on a quest in order to seek out the evil organization that ruined his childhood. Funny thing is that the soldiers were just investigating a forest fire since it was really close to their base, and got there a tad bit too late to stop the fire. And so the story is told mostly from the "Villains" point of view as the "Hero" constantly misunderstands the intent of the protagonists and consistently makes things go from bad, to worse. I'd like to say my story is a Deconstruction, but that's giving myself far too much credit. Anyways onward to the Character List!

(Free cookies for whoever can figure out the theme naming for these guys :P)

The "Good Guys"

The Main Characters, AKA the "Bad Guys"

I'm probably going to change the names later on, right now they seem a bit over the top for me. If anyone's wondering why the main characters have such fancy titles, well I'll let this quote I got from a book I just finished reading say it for me.

"You give yourselves a lot of names."

"We tend to kill a lot of people."

For your consideration, my ME Vs (modern era villains):

    • Al'lan - Right-hand man.

  • Carrowite - lord of all Vampires. Completely nuts, believes he is the target of a conspiracy to keep the Vampires weakened headed by the Illuminati.
    • Soma - Right-hand man. Formerly an Israeli carpenter. Roughly 2000 years old.

  • Ether - Supervillain, Omnicidal Maniac. Deceased.

    • Kaitlyn Lee - She couldn't think of a good name.
    • Barrage - goes boom
    • Wolf Wight - Kills people for money. Also is an anthropomorphic wolf. Crazy stuff.
    • Element Enigma - See that thing over there? No you don't, because it's an illusion. *ghost sounds*
    • Revenant: Walking Zombie Apocalypse.

And last but not least:

  • Case - Big Bad. Last of His Kind Draconic mage with aims towards reviving his race.
    • Time Lord - unwitting pawn/"supervillain" (in much the same way Marvel's The Walrus is a supervillain)/random schmuck.

Kiskol: A brave boy with great potential for space exploration. A bit dumb, but he usually gets out of scrapes okay. Was banished to a small planet with virtually nothing else on it. Name is inspired by Ky Kiske and Sol-Badguy from Guilty Gear, but not in that way.

Mary Sue Lebowski

Something about this name... I can't put my finger on it.

And the Foggy Bottom Boys - Just the name makes me think Nixon and Deep Throat for some reason.

Hollownerox: Reading that last line in your "Good Guys" section made me think of earlier stories I once had. If you can't think up other characters for your merry band, its best not to just throw in more just for the sake of having more. Nothing wrong with a Power Trio.

I can't help but notice a lot of people are using the surname Moore for a character or two.

John Jiang Zhao

His name is my name too?

Mr. Mallard: I'm curious as to how someone has "potential for space exploration".

[up][up] Talk about dysfunctional families.

[up] ._. I wasn't expecting that.

Here are the five new characters I added to my roster with Dawn Of A New Century. :)

Arcturus: Demetrios and Lily's first son. He already has his father's adventurous spirit, as well as his black hair and blue eyes.

Rosemary: Demetrios and Lily's daughter. She's already taking after her mother, right down to her light silver hair and blue eyes.

Dante: Demetrios and Lily's second son. He's only a baby for now, but he's quite cheerful. He also has blue eyes, and his dark silver hair is already coming in.

Cliff: Michael's pet Siberian Husky. He's one of the reasons Michael became more relaxed and easygoing.

Lynessa: One of the Stone Cutters' Paladins. As an angel, she's very beautiful, as well as having golden-brown hair and blue eyes. She's sweet and fun-loving, though a little shy around Anne-Marie. Because she's in love with her.
Sabrina, help! I'm stuck in The Forties and they haven't invented kitty litter yet!
