Shima - surname unknown

Shima is a tall, well dressed man with dark hair and matching eyes who leads a rouge fraction against the Big Five and is for Revenge due to the fact that at some point they were allies, but no longer given the fact they turned on him and betrayed him for a yet un-revealed reason. Currently viewed as the Big Bad of Reaching Salvation, Shima and his fellows seem to be bidding their time for another strike on the tower



Oliver Reverend and the Roads to Damnation

"You cannot save everyone and to try is a fools task. But you can save those that will come after you be leaving this world as the best place you can. And such a task requires sacrifices."
Oliver on the topic of Utopia being possible.
Created and played by Dobi Boshi.

Oliver is a young adult in his early twenties, well built with electric blue hair that makes him easily noticeable in a crowd. Dragon-in-Chief to Shima himself, Oliver oversees the daily running of Shima's base and the facilities whilst keeping the peace between those that dwell within. Given his status The Dragon, Oliver is also trusted with the most important missions Shima has to ordered his subordinates to under take and is easily one of the most powerful characters within Reaching Salvation.

He has yet to make an official appearance in Post Acer for the time being.

Tropes:* Ambition Is Evil


Nathan Stanton

"You're in my way... move, or die."
- Nathan "English" Stanton displaying how much of a Jerkass he is.
Created and played by Stabberz

Nathan Stanton is considered, by many, to be a morally bad person who isn't above using brute strength to achieve his own goals. Nathan one more than one occasions has shown himself to be one of the strongest contestants still competing in the Acer Tournament. He appears to have won the Super Power Lottery with his Flow gift which enables him to absorb and mimic up to five other flows at any given time. In the Acer Tournament he is in the same team as Kira and Luke, but the odds of him remaining in the tournament are low after witnessing Shima's impressive display of power. Many consider him arrogant and self centered. In the grand scheme of things that owners of the characters are split directly down the middle as to whether or not he truly is a good character. Many see him as a contender for the future Big Bad. Has now defected to Shima.



Eithne McHale

"Oi, watch the coat, asshole! It's worth half my badass points!"
Eithne McHale, when something puts his beloved coat in danger.
Created by Dobi Boshi, played by Dobi Boshi and - briefly- Stabberz

A six foot one Scottish born martial artist who is the sole remaining member of his own team of three, he left then to die to save his own hide in the early stages of the tournament before he really got to know either of them, though nobody really knows about it due to how close to the chest he keeps the fact. He is involved in a relationship with Amelia, though they're currently having their porblam due to recent events in the Post Acer story line.


  • Anchored Ship: Despite all the problems the recent revelation and distance it has put between them since it was revealed that Eithne has been Brainwashed and Crazy for the better part of five years, Amelia and Eithne are this.
  • Anti-Villain: Is somewhat more concerned with his own survival than a lot of other things, and is aware that he might have do some nasty things to stay alive - and he's more than willing to do them as long as it doesn't bend his Code of Honor to much. He's a good example of what happens when you mix a Type I with a Type II - the Noble Woobie.
  • All There in the Manual: The fate of his teammates and how he left them both to die is never actually mentioned in the RP; just a little fact that Dobi Boshi came up with when trying to flesh out Eithne's back story.
  • The Atoner: Part of the reason he took such a shin to Simon and Heidi and tried so hard to protect them was to help try and redeem himself for leaving his teammates to die.
  • Badass Longcoat: Starts wearing one in the second week.
  • Berserk Button: He's got a few, but the worst is probably calling him a monster to his face.
  • BFS: Uses a few through both the original and Post Acer, though the one he was currently using was destroyed when fighting Tabaris
  • Big Brother Mentor: To Simon and Heidi.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As above.
  • Born in the Wrong Century: At least he thinks he was.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Thanks to Shima mind raping him to a mindless drone that would follow Nathan's order to the latter and protect him no matter what.
  • Brave Scot
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: His and Amelia's relationship is basically this.
  • Broken Ace: Let's see: excellent fighter? Check. Much more intellagent that he lets on? Check? Excessive amounts of personal and emotional baggage? Check!
  • Character Development / Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Played straight when first introduced, subverted now due to development in his character that has mellowed him out a lot, leaving him just a plain old badass.
    • Rectonned into Obfuscating Stupidity by Dobi Boshi after he joined in the Post Acer RP: the complete idiot he acted at first was a facade he threw up to help try and cope with the guilt and grief of what he did to his two teammates - though the tower was just to much for him and he couldn't keep it up, resulting in the cynical Jerkass we all know him as being born.
  • Closer to Earth: More so than some of those around him.
  • Dark Is Not Evil
  • Determinator
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You
  • The Dragon: Was this unknowingly against his will to Nathan.
  • Fiery Redhead: When his temper gets the better of him, but for the most part he is pretty level headed.
  • Friend to All Children: Whilst Eithne is a Jerkass and a bastard, he does have a heart of gold and generally likes little kids and refuses to do anything that would lead to harming them.
  • Genre Savvy: Has his moments.
  • Greed: Unlike in the traditional sense, instead of wanting money or fame, he wants friends.
  • Hates Being Touched: Due to the sometimes volatile nature of his Flow and the danger it presents to others.
    • Grew out of it as he got more of a handle on his power.
  • Honor Before Reason
  • Hot-Blooded
  • I Can Still Fight!: On more than one occasion.
  • Jerkass: For the most part, but he's really a...
  • Lack of Empathy: He has shown this towards certain contestants purely because he can't be bothered with them.
  • Leaning on the Furniture
  • Leeroy Jenkins: First meeting with Heidi.
  • Martial Pacifist: Played with - whilst he fits a good part of the criteria for this Trope, he also lacks in certain areas.
  • One Head Taller: With Amelia.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red Oni to Nathan's Blue.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: When the Trigger Shima had placed on him wore off he was pretty damn pissed off.
  • Sir Swearsalot: When compared to some of the other characters.
  • Took a Level in Badass
  • The Worf Effect: Against Tabaris who beat him down in one hit. Justified, or at least more so that most examples as Eithne had just had a large, draining battle against Nathan and was far from at peak condition.
