Roleplay / A-GENTS

Go To

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 of a world defense organization known simply as "The 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?

The original deviantArt for the roleplay has been wiped of its contents, but a backup one is available here.

A-GENTS provides examples of:

  • 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.
  • Artificial Limbs:
    • Libby will get something to replace her missing leg.
    • Adelaide is described as getting an artificial arm in the future.
    • Rem is practically defined by this, as his left arm is mechanical.
  • Bad Dreams: Susie gets these so often that you hardly ever see her sleeping. If she does sleep, it's in a public place.

  • 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 [[No-Holds-Barred Beatdown it's not fun.
    • Bringing up Alice can create some bad reactions in several A-GENTS, especially Ainsley.
    • Morgan hates Rem. To the point of destroying the entire bar and injuring several A-GENTS when she ran into him there.
  • Blood Magic: Enyo's ability. She actually can control any sort of blood, and has used it in several different ways. Like causing heart attacks, stopping people from bleeding out, and creating weapons out of thin air.
  • Butch Lesbian: Tristyn. She's a pilot and more than capable of handing the brawlers their asses in a fight.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Matthew, thanks to the fact he's constantly creating toxins due to his ability.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Morgan Cho. He has seismic powers, which he has been known to use to halt confrontations.
  • 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.
  • Eye Scream: Before joining Agents, Tahmi (T28) had acid poured on his right eye by scientists to test the Healing Factor part of his ability.
  • Heroic BSoD: Lee completely stopped functioning at the death of his sweetheart Amalia.
  • Intangibility: 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-ranked 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.
  • 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.
  • Mad Scientist: 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.
  • 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 have extensive emotional responses even at the mention of her name.
  • The Mourning After: Lee will never love another woman after Amalia's death, much to Jane's dismay.
  • The Multiverse: Some of the A-GENTS have actually visited alternate realities themselves.
  • Papa Wolf: Though not her father, Lauren will rip the faces off those who hurt Izzy.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Put on a Bus: There's a folder full of inactive A-GENTS, and a lot of main characters that have been completely sidelined, like Huey (a penguin Matthew had as a pet.) Some do manage to come back, though.
  • Straight Gay: Jin/Ion. He's a complete badass, with more than enough scars to prove it. He also regularly sleeps with 54.
  • 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 separate friends from lovers.
  • 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.
