FluidAnims Gladiators

Animator: Terkoiz
With an eluded name and a mysterious purpose, "FLLFFL", or "Alfa" seen through illusion, is arcane. He possesses a foundation of never killing his opponents, a moral code that gives him great control over his emotions. Appearing to be in his late-middle ages, he has always been known to be very dependent on his specialized sword. Although no one knows what it's exactly made of, his sword has always protected himself and destroyed others. No one really knows why he's here, speculations range from creating another legendary weapon to seeking someone who can defeat him.


Animator: stone
Born in sheer mayhem and raised in crucible of struggle, he fought his way through his life as an underdog just barely making it to see the light of the next day. When he was about 17 years old when he'd found an extraordinary weapon buried in the rubble of the RHG Coliseum. This weapon seemed like any other geological landmark to anyone else, but Andre noticed something peculiar about this rock formation, As he approached the rock it exploded in a fiery electric display releasing his destiny.

Animator: Jomm
Stayed low for awhile polishing his sword. Eventually he grasped his sword and the almighty SOLDIER was born. This badass has great pride for his clan and will take on anyone who dares belittle the SOLDIER name.

Animator: Hyun
Too poor to buy a real weapon, this teenager modified the average yo-yo to be an explosive and lethal tool for his opponents. The micro generator inside his yo-yo stores massive amounts of energy as it spins in high speeds, unleashing a devastating shock of power on the next hit.

Animator: Endo
One day Chuck was out busking on the streets with a nunchuck act that everyone loved. He had just finished his second act and was lighting his smell-good candles for meditation when a truck loaded with containers of toxic waste lost control and fell on him. Ever since the accident, he has been awesome.

Animator: oxob3000
Oxob used to be a rich stuntman that lived life to the fullest. One day he lost both his hands but since he was rich he can afford to buy mechanical replacements. Later on, these hands were upgraded, constructed in carbon steel and modified with power-concentrating ability. After these upgrades, Oxob was all out of money and turned into a poor guy with no belongings. Despite this, Oxob still tries to live each day with joy, and makes friends wherever he goes. But those who try to pick a fight with him leave with at least a broken nose.


    Mr. Pix
Animator: Geo
A computer program designed to gather knowledge and return it to a source, similar to a Google Spider. He has lost an integral part of his programming, the location of his source, and can do nothing but gather information about everything he senses. His quickest method of obtaining information is through the sense of touch, and once he grabs a hold of an object to absorb it, he cannot consciously abort the action. He cannot speak, but can emulate sounds, a la an 8-bit sound driver.

    Fox and Q
Animator: Kidkei
Fox was part of an international space program who auctioned planets on the black market after wiping out their inhabitants. One mission they went to this planet called "Que", known for its ferocious creatures. As the team progressed into the planet's depths, they were wiped out by an ambush of black creatures and Fox barely escaped with his life. Stranded and slowly dying, Fox managed to live for a while until one day he came across another black creature. Unlike the others, this one helped him live and they soon became friends soon after. He returned to Earth with 'Q' (or so he named the creature) and joined a fight club since he's no longer eligible for his former job. In one match he was close to losing, so Q stepped in which disqualified Fox for cheating. That was where he was invited to join Zetabrand and the RHG system.

Animator: Supranova
Styr was walking through the woods far from home when he was a young boy. He was lost, helpless, and alone, trying to find food and shelter in a territory that he did not know. He had given up hope of returning home, where his abusive parents had left him on the side of the street to starve. In the deepest corner of the woods, Styr came upon a large spear, one left behind by the native people in that area. Styr, overcome by curiosity, picks up the spear, examines it briefly, and moves on thinking little of what he had just seen. As he is walking away, he hears a whooshing sound coming from where he had just been. The now airborne spear slices through the air toward him, cutting his right cheek to leave a pertinent scar, the scar of ownership. Styr, realizing the power of this tool, uses it to hunt and hone his skills to become a master of this unique weapon.

    Indestructible Dave 
Animator: PlaguedSoul
Dave is a rather famous person, people like to make movies about him. Although he likes to think of himself as your average Joe, he cannot be one. He is unsure when he found out about his powers or when he developed them. He does not have eyes, and he isn't sure why he can still see like he would if he did but just a strange symbol is there. Almost like he sees from the symbol.

People seem to think Dave is a criminal, but he only uses his "powers" for good. After a recent exploration of ancient ruins, Dave found a decrepit prison which showed the same symbol on the wall as the symbol for his eye. He began to follow through the prison and came to a room, where there were two skeletons on the ground that wore clothing from the early fifties.

They looked to be explorers, and it seemed they died in that room from something unspeakable... could it have been Dave?

He found one of the skeletons to have a holster and a backpack on, and the other a sheath to a sword. Dave warped in his weapons and they both fit into each casing; he warped his weapons out and looked into the bag. The bag contained a book of magic, with once again the same symbol on his head in there. He set down the book and looked to the pedestal in the center of the room to see that it looked to have once held a human figure, "Could this have been my prison?" Dave said. He got up and lay on it and it fit him perfect, but suddenly the room started to shake and on the ceiling the same body form was there. Dave realized this fast and quickly rolled off the pedestal to land on the ground; he didn't want to be imprisoned again. The room still shook and as he saw the door start to slowly close, Dave quickly grabbed the book and dove through the door. And now you know what he is so far.
