Name: My name is Magnus V. O'Malley.

Age: "Old enough to know better, and young enough not to care". Yeah, I've tried. He doesn't give straight answers.

Gender: Male

Appearance: [1]. He wears that thing pretty much 24/7. Sometimes you'll see him wearing a regular suit over it, and a top hat. HE calls this "Business Atire".

Personality: -CUE MUSIC- He is an enigma wrapped in a shell of Large Ham. The Reaper once asked to play chess with him. His recipes all contain a hint of madness. He once spoke Latin... In Hebrew. His toast lands butter-side in. He is...

-RECORD SCRATCH- What is he?

History: Why, hello thar. My history, eh? Well, what I can tell you is that I work part-time for an organization whom you might have heard. They don't like to be talked about, but I can tell that they have something to do with a certain "Hard-to-Destory Reptile". As for becoming a mech pilot, I played a lot of the Armored Core games as a kid, along with several others *COUGH COUGH* Metal Wolf Chaos *COUGH COUGH*. When the Eldritchians arrived, I saw that as A), my chance to final do something reasonable with all those giant robot schematics that I always find myself doodling, and B), More Dakka (That should be all I need to say for that).

Why yes, I do like to leave the Fourth Wall screaming in pain, why do you ask?

PART 2 OF 2: MECHA

  • MECHA NAME: DraconiTech Leviathan-343 — Custom
    • NICKNAME: Cosmic Wyrm

    • APPEARANCE:[1], [2] and [3], for reference. Think of some fusion of those, but with some more Mecha in them. And not quite so bulky and OP-looking. In fact, add a few Tron Lines and a hint of Lineark-07 White Glint.

    • ARMAMENTS: One MainLine MAR (Think "Railgun", but with a bit more bite), One "F***ing MASSIVE Mass Blade", 'Der Flammenwerfer' (A thing that half spits bits of molten metal and half stabs things with heated metal poles.), The Shark Cannon, and a few other things which I'll add later for plot reasons.

    • MODES: 3 — Meta-Leviathan, Hyperdrake, and Great Wyrm.
      • Meta Leviathan: Aquatic Combat form. Combines traits of a Speed Form, a bit of a Stealth Form, and an Underwater Form. Quick, capable of multiple strikes in a single pass, yet not quite as durable or as strong as the other forms.
      • Hyperdrake: Land Combat form. Designed for maximum durability and any range of fighting. Functions Nominally on most land-based battlegrounds. The slowest and strongest of the three.
      • Great Wyrm: Air and Space Combat form. A truly unique and custom form, this mode mixes and matches from dozens of forms, including Slayer, Mage, Glint, and adds several all-together new features.

God, I love my job. - Magnus O'Malley

  • Gender: Male
  • Appearance: Tall guy, brown hair, green eyes, angular face. Tends to just wear a t-shirt and jeans
  • Personality: Harvey is an extremely angry person.He has a special hate in his heart for any and all Eldritchian. Harvey loves fighting to the nth degree. While he is just happy to fight win or lose it is his opinion that if you are going to win you have to do more than win. The enemy must be defeated, utterly and completely. This is not to say he is incautious as he is a skilled pilot but his philosophy has turned some clear victories into losses
  • History: From an American family with a long history of police officers, he was expecting to join the force when he grew old enough. However when the Eldritchians came and he saw the machines created to fight them and he knew what he wanted to do with his life. He eventually ended up working for S.E.R.V.E as a frontline trooper. As a result over the years he has lost a lot of friends and seen a lot of people die. He developed his current personality as a result
  • Mecha name: He calls it Knight
  • Appearance: about 70 feet tall, looks like this: http://www.mechwarriorwiki.com/wiki/File:MechWarrior_Online_Centurion_Concept(dot)jpg (I dont know how to link images here) except with 2 laser guns on either shoulder and the bottom part of the visor covered. Has jump jets on it's back and legs to allow for quick movement to and around the battlefield
  • Weapons:
    • The right arm is a giant cannon firing H.E.A.P (High-Explosive Armor-Pierceing) shells. It is normally only semi-auto but can briefly go full-auto which overheats the weapon
    • Has a medium sized missile battery in the left side of its chest
    • Lasers on either shoulder
    • The shield on its left arm project a deflector shield is the shape of a round shield
    • Has a powerful short-range chest blaster to be used in emergencies only. Generally only ever used to blast off a monster if it has hold and it about to eat through the mecha.

Do the mecha have to be original or can we use ones from series or what have you?

Hmm I hadn't thought of that.

Everyone else has used some form of fictional mecha as a basis for theirs.

But if you want to use a pre-existing mecha from a show or anime. Go ahead.

What? You've been writing an humongous mecha RP and I wasn't even notified!? Inconceivable!

...Talking seriously, I'd really like to join! I've finished reading everything that has been going on so far, and I've got some ideas I'd like to play with. I want to see how a traditional Super Robot pilot would work inside of a decidedly non-traditional setting. I think it might generate some interesting character dynamics and interactions.


  • Name: Celeste D. Caballero
  • Age: 23
  • Gender: Female
  • Appearance: She looks like non-threating and relatively frail girl at first glance, and could even pass for someone way younger she really is, always projecting an aura of kindness. She sports a single braid to help to keep her long brown hair in place.Visual Reference  Overall, she uses a varied selection of clothing, and she doesn't shy away to the chance of wearing a pretty dress, but during her active pilot duties she favors clothes that allow her to easily slip inside of her powered armor.
  • Personality: A consummated idealist, Celeste always tries her best to be polite and positive, even with those that might react to her sincere intentions with distrust or even aggression. Empathy is one of her key qualities, she's been taught that one must not condemn people, one must be there to help them in whichever way one can. A friend in need is a friend indeed!

    However, she's also quite intense and passionate. This is particularly evident whenever she gets the chance to pilot a mecha, as shout-outs voice commands and trades combat banter with an almost theatrical enthusiasm to them. Despite this, she never leads her overflowing enthusiasm cloud her good judgment, after all, her mission isn't to annihilating the Eldritchians, but fighting to protect the innocents that suffer because of them.

    Because of her unusual upbringing (watching old-school Super Robot anime) and overflowing idealism, she also might come off as relatively wacky and unhinged, sometimes reacting to mundane ideas and situations with a lot of "unnecessary" flair and drama.
  • History: Growing up in a world under constant siege by the Eldritchian, Celeste's childhood wasn't an easy one, always running away along with her family whenever one of those creatures appeared. However, thanks to the support of her family, she managed to grow to become a relatively well adjusted person, thanks, in great, part to her grandfather: He taught her about values like compassion, bravery, selfness and diligence; and always encouraged her to strive for knowledge and power, in order to help people. He also shared with her stories about courageous men and women fighting against unspeakable evil using powerful steel giants. This TV Shows from before the invasion ignited Celeste's imagination, and ultimately motivated her to become just like them.

    When the S.E.R.V.E.'s mecha-program started to operate on full capacity, Celeste made the oath to become a pilot some day, to save people and fight against evil, just like the characters she looked up to. Unfortunately, since she lacked any special abilities and training, she just wasn't an apt candidate for S.E.R.V.E.'s elite team. Disillusioned, she decided to move on, and started working as a technician on GeneSys, an organization dedicated to repair the damage caused by the Eldritchian. However, she didn't abandoned her dream: There, she started her own training to try to become pilot, spending countless hours in combat simulations, and learning how to pilot utilitarian mechas.

    This impromptu training ended up saving her life, and those of several people, when a squad of Eldritchian's minions attacked their dome-city. Using an utilitarian-mecha, she managed to fend off the invaders, giving enough time for survivors to escape, and stalling the enemies long enough for the reinforcements' arrival. Thanks to this display of courage and ability, she was contacted by an important man of the GeneSys' organization. He invited her to join them as a test pilot for experimental prototypes.

    There she learned how to pilot real combat mechas, and even teamed up with other GeneSys' pilots to fight against real monsters, all while saving as many people as they could. It seemed like she has finally found her place in the world. However, one day she was contacted by the same man that gave her the chance to become a real pilot, this time with a different kind of mission: She had to join S.E.R.V.E.'s pilots, and learn more about them and their organization's agenda.
  • Counterpart Comparison: The principal influence behind her design, personality and story-background wise, is Shunsuke Akagi from Dai-Guard . Besides, she also has some of Noriko Takaya's characteristics, like the contrast of her gentle nature with her sheer Hot Bloodedness!
  • Transhuman Abilities & Augmentations: NON-EXISTENT. Unlike some other pilots which have gone under genetic and/or cybernetic augmentation, Celeste lacks any of those powerful advantages. Her piloting skills have been the result of a lot of hard-work and sheer determination.
  • Special Equipment:
    • Powered Armor: Standard issue defensive gear developed by GeneSys, Celeste's suit of powered armor greatly increases her ability to interact with her experimental mecha, besides granting her a certain degree of combat prowess she wouldn't have otherwise because of her ordinary, un-augmented body. However, its most important function is to protect her from the Eldritchians' psychic assaults, a concern that has been manifesting even more frequently during the latest battles against them.
    • Wrist-mounted-mini-computer: This little holographic interface gadget allows Celeste to stay in contact with her comrades back at GeneSys, as well as containing a myriad of other functions to aid her in her mission, like an almost unlimited access to GeneSys' data-base, just to name one of them.

  • Mecha Name: Bastion-Sigmanote 
  • Appearance: It looks like a fusion between Layzner and Rai-Oh. I'll need to think of a better description
  • Description: The short version - It is a Lightning Bruiser Barrier Warrior. The slightly longer version - This mecha was designed with close combat in mind, with its Guard System conceding it a defense that surpasses even the most advanced S.E.R.V.E.'s mechas. Coupled with its high mobility, and the potential to use its defensive system to amplify its melee attacks, this mecha is a almost unrivaled when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. However, because of the complexity of the Guard System, the amount and potency of its integrated weapons was been drastically reduced, and since the photo-atomic energy wreaks havoc on most conventional mech-carried weapons, its long range capabilities are almost non-existent.
  • Weapons (and support systems):
    • Booster Unit: While it's not a machine designed for aerial combat, the Bastion-Sigma has been equipped with an integrated flight module that allows it to reach distant combat zones without the need of a transport crew. In battle, the boosters offer great mobility and allow it to perform lightning fast strikes, greatly increasing the power behind its melee attacks.
    • Pilder Unit: The main control unit for this mecha is located inside of an special air-craft which docks inside of its back, around a reinforced frame meant to protect it and its pilot. It was designed to combine and separate at will, facilitating the pilot's access to the mech and functioning as an escape pod in case the unit ends up compromised.
    • Guard System: This unit main, and most innovative, feature is an advanced defensive system capable of harnessing the photo-atomic energy to create nigh-unbreakable shields around the mech, capable of dissipating almost every kind of attack... Including psychic assaults and other "esoteric" forms of warfare. Besides, they also can be used to increase the impact behind the mech's psychical attacks, greatly increasing its hand-to-hand prowess against tougher foes. Nonetheless, as useful and versatile as it is, the pilot can't make undiscriminated use of this system, as it can lead to a reactor overload, and a security lockdown to prevent the intense energy from destroying the mech itself... And everything around it.
    • Photon Gun: This mech's head unit is actually a multi-purpose long range weapon... In fact, it is the only long range weapon it counts with, and it's also the weakest piece in its arsenal. It has three fire modes: Burst mode, Laser mode and Cannon mode. Burst fires constant pulses of energy which can it enemies almost instantly, Laser is a sustained stream of particles with moderate cutting power, and Cannon is a slower moving "glob" of photo-atomic energy which explodes on impact.note 
    • Corona Emitter: A mid-range weapon located in the mecha's chest, it emits an "aura" of super-charged photon-atomic energy all around it, which is capable of vaporizing minor enemies instantly and stunning some of the larger ones. The blast can be concentrated in an area directly in from the mecha's chest to maximize its effectiveness, at the cost of area-of-effect.note 
    • Guardian Blade: A short blade of pure photon-atomic energy created by concentrating the Guard System's defensive field in a narrow zone. This sharp ace of particles has a (theoretically) unlimited cutting power, and it can slice through the toughest Eldritchian's shields and armor with ease. However, its maximum length is quite limited, and the defensive effectiveness of the Guard System drops drastically whenever it's activated, so it must be used sparingly and with extreme caution.note 
    • Photon Colliders: Bastion-Sigma's most powerful weapon. Inside of both of its arms, the mecha has two photo-atomic emitters that destroy the Eldritchian's beast at a molecular level, super-charging them with a lethal dose of energy which destabilizes their whole physical structure, causing them to disintegrate in a violent, but relatively harmless explosion of residual luminous energy. This weapon only works if the mecha's arms are in direct contact with the enemy and the shields become unusable while it's active. A highly destructive, but incredibly risky weapon best used to finish off downed opponents.note
