God, life kicked me in the butt this week, but its finally Thanksgiving, so I have some time to update tonight.

Also, its good to see other people reserving.

Oh, and by the way, Ichiro? My character's last name is Afon, not Afron.

Ooops, entirely my bad Silver Rogue ><
I'll make sure to remember that for next time.

For Conjurer, just a little heads up on what has happened.

My character Michael, Skymin's Oakley and Raikiri's Christian have gone to the Atlantean centre in London, England, to sign up after a news broadcast saying that they would be fugitives if they didn't. There they met River Beleren, a controller of water and one of the Atlantean Royal family. Michael and Oakley's power overcome them and Christian stands idle.

Supervegeta's Leon was taken from Switzerland by a teleporting Atlantean, and brought to The Syndicate, a mysterious organisation hidden in shadows, their motives kept secret.

Meanwhile Nikolai AFON, has been taken aside by Natalia Zaytsev, an Atlantean who can phase through walls, and is a member of the AUP or Atlantean Unification Project; their main goal is to unite all Atlanteans as a singular race.

That is where everyone is at.

To be fair, Raikiri does not know what to do with Christian but will try to get a post up tonight after eating his massive Thanksgiving meal and escaping from his relativtes.

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving if anyone celebrates it.

I am going to take a guess and say Christian is second from the right with smoke coming from the hand. I could be wrong though XP. Looks fantastic by the way. Wish I had art talent like that :D

And nice Skyrim theme signature and avatar (thingie). I am running an Imperial barbarian-ish guy right now haha.

@Deep Impact.........hmmmmmmm the SU is good, the ability is borderline OP, so you are going to have to watch that. No, he won't be able to have true super strength, but enhancement to his level of strength depending on his Molecular State would be okay. If he can make himself strong enough to stop bullets, why would he need a bullet proof vest? I would guess that would come down to the amount of control he had over his ability; a safety fall back. Like you said, the history/personality fits someone in their later 20', early thirties, so you will need to change the history to better suit his age please. And in a week I doubted he would have enough control over his ability to scare the mafia (not that there is one in this version of London).

Overall, Pending for your review and editting. :)
Your thoughts Skymin?

I... Don't really like the power that much as that's what Natalia can do. Walk through walls. How does somebody find out they can do that in a week? An yeah, the history is too much for a 24 year old. You can't go from a high profile businessman to a private detective in like, 3-4 years.

One thing that irks me is the perceptive trait you gave him. That's all well and good, but it often gives roleplayers an excuse to see through purposely hidden emotions and motives and stuff. Oh, and he committed suicide, learned to go with the flow yet continously aims for the top? Doesn't... Make sense. It's almost as if you put it in there to invoke drama d:

So yeah, fix yo power, fix yo history. Remember, it's only been a week since the atlanteans revealed themselves.

And lol the mafia. Oh god please don't play that card. How does one even involve themselves or even find out about the mafia?!

@ DeepImpact Lol, the Mafia. The one problem with that is that the only people who really know what its like in the mafia are in the mafia. So how would you know how to write with your character being in the mafia? Unless you were in the mafia...... *SR pulls out a phone and calls 911*

Lol, anyways, got a new post up, nothing great, didn't have a whole lot to work with. Just a filler for now. Oh! And I added snow in Russia. Mostly cuz it snowed last night up here in Minnesota. Horay for snow!!!

Lol, yeah. Thats fine. I like the new post as well. Very nice. I'll see if I can get a response to that up tonight, but have a paper I have kinda been putting off for a while thats due tomorrow, so......maybe.

Sorry about being innactive for a while, school just kicked me in the butt recently. The teachers are piling on homework before winter break, and I am struggling to keep up with papers and projects, much less an RP. Things should calm down pretty soon though, as in Friday. So I should be able to post then, although I am going to try to post earlier if I can.

Wow, long post was long. So yeah, sorry for the late post guys, I have been working like 9-10 hour days this week, and got a lot more next week. So a lot has happened so far. Conjurer seems to have gone afk, so her character will be left open if she wishes to come back.

I guess that after this little hurdle of working hours, I should be posting more regularly, which means that the RP will probably progress slightly faster. I kinda want to get this RP finished so that I can bring out the sequel, there are so many plot twists and references between the two that I cannot wait until this has finished.

My next post once people have replied should bring more light to the AUP and Atlantean Royal Family as well as expanding more on the Syndicate. So are you really sure you are working for the 'good guys'!?!?!?!?

Alright then, reserve me pleez. This RP's very popular, couldn't pass up the chance to be a part of it.

Name: Jason 'Wym' Weaver
Age: 18
Height: 6 ft
Weight: 150 lbs
Location: USA, San Diego

Appearance:

Atlantean Tattoo: An assortment of spirals with spikes emerging from them. (See picture) Located on the back of Wym's hand.

Appearance:
Picture for reference:
Spoiler:



-Physical Appearance-

I'm basically your average grease monkey. I'm black, that much should be obvious, and I have grey, greasy hair that I keep in a messy state. I have green, piercing eyes, a gift from my mom, and thick, parted, gray eyebrows. I was born with grey hair, I didn't dye it. That would be emo. My mom always told me it was because I was 'born asleep' but of course there's a scientific explanation for it. Anyway, in addition to this, I always, I repeat, always, keep a nice little stubble shave under my chin, which strangely enough, grows black instead of grey. Although I think I prefer it that way. My build is fairly muscled, just right for the mechanic line of work. I can lift anything that needs liftin', my hands are just the right size to squeeze through those annoying gaps in cars, and it makes me pretty sturdy. Now, sure, I can withstand hits from almost anybody, but that doesn't mean I like to fight, man. I prefer to keep it cool. Anyway, I work out every day, to keep myself in shape, of course. If I lost my muscle, it would mean that I loose my cool. And if I lose my cool, I can't do nothin'. Although the one problem is, I should be doing my studies while I'm workin' out, yeah, that sucks. But I'd choose brawn over brains any day. I weigh about 150 lbs, give or take a pound, and I'm 6 foot high. Which is impressive considering my ancestry. Sure, I'm not very fast, and I tire very easily when I run, but I'm pretty sure my awesome sturdiness covers that.

-Clothing-

I wear two outfits, depending on where I am. I wear my work uniform, which is covered in grease, at work (duh) and my casual outfit just about anywhere else. At work, I wear an orange baseball cap with a my work's logo 'Donaldson Repairs' marked all over it. I wear a matching T-Shirt with that, which is covered in my sweat, and oil markings. It truly stinks. Like the cap, it's also orange and has the same logo on it. It sucks, but our boss Donald Donaldson (I know, so cliche) is very strict. I know what you're thinking, no, I do not wear a matching pair of pants. I just wear regular jeans, they're mine, and not work's. We can bring whatever legwear we like. These jeans I usually keep for work, because like the shirt, they're sweaty and covered in oil marks. That's all from working on cars. Yup. Oh yeah, I almost forgot my trusty tool belt, which has any and all tools I need on it. It's actually pretty high quality, since we're required to bring our own tool belts, I got mine from my dad, who also works at Donaldson's.

As for my regular outfit, I wear a black-and-green jacket. The top half is black, and the bottom half is green, a close match to my eyes. The jacket has a zipper, and two pockets along the bottom half, which are lined with black. Apparently it was a designer jacket, last on sale. My friend Marty got it for my birthday, very nice. Under my jacket, I wear my prized family necklace. An heirloom passed from generation to generation of Weavers. Given to each one when they turn eighteen. Frankly, I don't buy that a single necklace could have survived that long, probably been replaced with lookalikes many times, but I still love it, it reminds me of home. It's shaped like...actually, I'm not sure what it is. A lightning bolt or a leaf like the Canadian flag (Uh oh) but I do know that it's grey, like me. Anyways, under my jacket is just a plain white T-Shirt with a green neck collar. When I go to class, I usually bring my backpack too, which matches with my jacket and my gloves, which are fingerless with a green tightener.
For legwear, I finally wear something that doesn't match with the rest of my clothes: Just plain, old jeans, and sneakers. I don't really care much what I wear on the bottom half, since you gotta get real lucky to have someone look at it. Hahaha.

Personality:

-Good Qualities-

While I'd say just about every awesome thing you can think of on this, I'll be truthful about myself. I'm unorthodox by nature. That is, I like to add my own little changes to everything, to make it my own. For example, you show me a fighting move, I might change it slightly so it better suits me. Also, you might find me make funny faces a lot. I know my picture doesn't show it, but I wasn't allowed to smile then because it was a picture for my passport. And I frowned because, well, there's another thing about me, I'm a black-or-white kinda guy by heart. If I'm not smiling, I'm frowning. I just can't get anything in between. Even though it's not very apparent, you'll usually find me with the slightest of grins on my face when I'm feeling casual. Anyway, about the funny faces, yeah, for example, someone stares at me, I might either give a nice hearty smile at them if it's a regular stare, but if I see they're staring at me in any sort of negative way, I just pull a gross face (I love those). Sure, I'm unorthodox, but that's actually gotten me a pretty nice rep. Yeah, that's right, the people adore me. They call me 'something else' instead of weird. Although those who do call me weird usually add 'but in a good way' to their sentence. I think it's mostly because of my positive attitude towards people I don't know. If you're a stranger and you come up to me, I'll act nice at first. But I can adapt to any situation, and if you start going nasty, I'll follow. So careful. Like I said before, I'm a black and white kinda guy. You gotta respect me to be respected.

-Bad Qualities-

If it was up to me, I wouldn't write anything in this section, but again, I'm being truthful here. First things first, as mentioned earlier, I'm a black or white guy. That means also that when you're nasty towards me, I'll go nasty towards you. And I don't hold back. I still stick by my standards of no violence, what I'm talking about is emotional pain. When I get angry, I'm usually so harsh the person I hurt and his brother don't wanna ever see me again. That kinda sucks. I can't help it. Another thing, anger issues. Just like when I'm happy, when I'm angry, it's hard to let go. I just don't feel right unless I make the other person hurt. emotionally, not physically, that's against my standards. And I respect my standards as much as anything else.

-Likes-

I like to be respected, and I like peace. Respect is the main building block of peace. And Peace is a must-have in every friendship. If people don't respect me, I don't respect them, I already said that. But if people respect me, automatically do the same. See, I adapt. When there's respect, peace usually follows. Since if people respect each other (and me) then they wouldn't have a reason to squabble.

On a completely unrelated subject, I LOVE Chorba, a kind of soup that my mom made for me when I was little. I quickly caught up on the recipe, and I eat it every breakfast. I have no idea if it's healthy, and seriously, I don't care. It's awesome!

-Dislikes-

Disrespect and violence, the opposites of things I do like, are a no-no in my book. From violence, I stay far away. Disrespect I only lean to if the other person seems to disrespect me also. I call it the boomerang effect. With me, whatever you give me you get in return. And I don't mean materials, I mean attitude.

History:

-Birth & Childhood-

My childhood was a wiley one indeed. I was born in Queens, New York on December 11th. I was raised in a small neighborhood called Geyser for the first five years of my life. I don't remember much about Geyser, but from what my parents told me, it wasn't so great. The streets were littered with junk everywhere, the neighbors weren't exactly neighborly, and wild, vicious dogs ran around. So, it wasn't long before we moved to San Diego. San Diego was a paradise. My dad soon found a steady job at Donaldson's Repairs, and I was always wanting to join him. See, when I was little, I always had this crazy urge to make and fix things. And I was damn good at it too. My father was proud of me. Something not many six year olds could have said back then. I always admired dad, always. I wanted to be a mechanic just like him when I grew up. I went to a school called Park Village Elementary, and I know that's when my popularity with the public started to rise. All the way through elementary to middle, my classmates loved me. It was the good life.

-Teenager years-

High school was hard to get used to at first. People had to accept my unorthodox ways. My first year as a freshman was unorthodox in itself. The only guys who really liked me were, of course, the other freshmen who knew me from Park Village. In fact, I almost got in trouble with the school bully from grade eleven. And damn was he scary. He had crooked teeth, like he was a cannibal, a weirdo smell, like fish, and he was huge. Abnormally huge. (Again, cliche) I managed to avoid him, but some of my classmates were picked on, especially the weaker ones. Anyway, after that year, people started to appreciate my unorthodox ways. They even liked it. And my high school popularity began. My second year was bumpy, to say the least. What with the new gang of bullies, but I managed to avoid fights and attract popularity anyway, soon enough even the bullies came flocking. They wanted to make me part of their group, but I respectfully declined, and I was lucky to get away with my life, but they didn't bother me after that. Lucky. My third and fourth years went just plain awesome. My popularity grew and my enemies declined. Again, it was the easy life. Until my senior years, and prom. When that came up, my life started to get bumpy again. Why? The Atlanteans. And it happened all too soon.

-My Atlantean Tattoo-

My atlantean tattoo came to me at the WORST possible moment: Prom. Then and there, I was dancing with the girl of my dreams, Isabella Johnson, when all of a sudden: A pain on the back of my hand. I decided to ignore it at first, but then it got so bad I couldn't take it without saying something. I excused myself to the bathroom to check it out, and my hand started glowing. I cried out in pain, as a strange shape started forming on my hand. A swirly pattern. It took my a few moments to understand what was happening: An Atlantean Tattoo. I'd heard about the Atlanteans from the countless news reports. That people all over the world were getting these strange tattoos signifying that they are of a royal Atlantean heritage. How could I be of a heritage?! When the pain finally stopped, I opened my eyes to find two things: First, the mark on my hand. Second: Isabella. "How long have you bee standing there?" I remember asking. She just ran off. Probably going to tell the head master, I thought. I knew I had to get out of here, there was a window I could et through in the bathroom, it was rectangle shaped and high up. I jumped up to it, and tried to open it: It wouldn't budge. That's when I found out about my power: Ferrokinesis. I'll explain later, basically, it's the ability to control any kind of metal. The handle that wouldn't budge was made of metal, and my power opened it up, allowing my to escape.


Ability:

-Ferrokinesis-

Also called Transmutation or Alchemy. It is effecting Metal using the power of the mind. This ability is not to be confused with Magnetokinesis; Magnetokinesis allows manipulation of magnetic fields and magnetic metals; Ferrokinesis allows manipulation of all metals. It's quite a handy ability to have, but I feel like Magneto from X-Men because of it. Even though I'm assured it's not the same thing. Hah.
Time for a scientific background. Ferrokinesis can effect any and all metals, whether that metal is in your body or in the rock you're holding in your hand. I can bend and manipulate metal to do whatever I want. I can also subtract in from any other thing, while I can't control that thing, I can control the metal within it. Of course, I use the power of my mind to do this, since bending some aluminium foil with my hands isn't very special. But don't think all this is it. No, I can do much more. I can change metal's structure to make it more resistant to rust, I can fuse two metals, I can change one metal into another, I can even make them more resistant to magnetism. Finally, I also have the ability to stretch metal, and envelop myself in it, creating a sort of armor.

Note, without any metal my ability is useless. I always keep a bar of metal in my pocket. I can make any weapon out of this one little bar of Steel, in case I need it.

Writing Sample:

From Percy Jackson: War of the Gods.

Spoiler:
The Artemis Cabin was entirely quite, as its only two inhabitants lay in their beds. Jared Angelo was one of these inhabitants, he'd been dreaming some of the weirdest dreams lately. Last night he was so worn out from chasing a deer he got in bed with bow still in hand and quiver lying on the floor. Right now, he was only half awake. Jared never was a morning person, and that was mainly because his mother was a god. The goddess of the moon, to be exact. Which sucked, because here Jared wasn't allowed to stay up late. This was Camp Half-Blood, a camp for Demigods-like, half human-half gods. Jared had been placed there over a year ago and, despite everything, he still was not used to it. The morning wake-up routines, the training exercises, and least of all, a little game called Capture the flag. Seriously, it was a baby game, so what was the point? He'd only played it a few times, but he could tell it was pointless. Jared figured the Camp didn't have routines suited or nocturnal Demigods, since there weren't supposed to be any. Artemis, Jared's mother, was a virgin goddess, last time he checked. (Which was for a rather annoying Greek Mythology research project) So why would she go ahead and break her vow? It didn't matter much to Jared, what was done was done. And Jared just had to live with it. Besides, Camp Half-Blood wasn't all bad. Jared felt like he fit in here, practically everyone was his cousin. Which was kind of gross considering the amount of couples around here.

Suddenly, Jared heard footsteps. That would be his only roommate-and half-sister-Luna...something. Jared really couldn't remember. He peeped his eye open just in time to see her enter the bathroom. There was something outside the door though, it looked like a dog, and it was rubbing its muzzle because Jared's sister had just slammed the door in its face. What she was saying was inaudible, considering Jared was still half asleep, but soon she got out of the shower area, already dressed. She did a bunch of other stuff, seemingly normal stuff for a Demigod, Jared thought. After all that, she rushed out to meet some other person, Jared heard them talking for a while before leaving. The dog following her.

After she was gone, Jared took it as his cue to get out of here. Luckily he was fully awake by now, he got up, wobbly-legged, and went to the bathroom. Jared had taken a shower last night, so he didn't see why he should in the morning. He crouched down to the bottom cabinet: the one with all his stuff in it, and took out a deodorant. Jared never really read the labels, he just smelled it to see if it was good, and sprayed it on his chest. Next, he took a toothbrush, sprayed it with water, lay a layer of toothpaste on it, and brushed. After rinsing, he put on his usual Camp Half-Blood clothes, and his Artemis bracelet. As he walked for the door, he suddenly tripped and fell on his elbows. He looked back and saw that his quiver was still lying on the floor from last night. "Stupid, stupid!" he muttered as he got up and picked up his quiver. The thing was still as beautiful as ever, Jared sometimes thought it had some spell around it so it couldn't be scratched. In the year that Jared had 'abused' it, it still hadn't lost any paint. He looked to his bed where he saw his beautiful Artemis Bow still lying there, as if waiting to be used again. Jared went over to his bed and took his bow. He strapped his quiver back onto his back and twirled the bow in his hand as he went for the door once again. Half expecting to trip again, he took a step outside.

The camp was busy as ever, Demigods were walking around here and there, some droopy from being woken up so early, others ready to start the day. Most of these would be from the Apollo Cabin. Jared rolled his eyes. What's so great about the sun anyway? He thought. He also thought he better start his training exercises and then head off for Archery practice. Today was also Capture the flag, which is why Jared hated Fridays.

***

After the usual routine: Push-ups, sit-ups, and all the other exercises that had no name, he walked his way up to the training area. There were various training routines one could take, but Jared liked nothing more than a nice- "Hey bruvah, what's up?!" a voice came from Jared's left. He turned to find his best friend T-J standing next to him. T-J was a son of Hermes, and Jared's best friend. He was black, and was wearing his regular Camp Half-Blood T-Shirt. Although he preferred to stick with army trousers. "Heeey, T-J, it's cool, it's cool." Jared said, as they knuckle-bumped. T-J was still wearing his flying shoes, it was annoying how he tended to fly around camp with them, really. T-J didn't train much, in fact, he was pretty skinny. He was also a few inches shorter than Jared. "Stain' in shape, I see." Jared teased. "Shut up, ya fitness nut." T-J struck back. Jared had to admit he was right, he could be a fitness nut from time to time.
The two strolled into the archery section of the training grounds and saw a few targets already stricken hundreds of times. And still being stricken hundreds of times. It was here that Jared was certain he would find his friend Henri, a child of Apollo. He always beat him to the training room. And sure enough, there he stood proud as ever, basking in his fancy sunlight. "Hey, Henri, 'sup?" T-J blurted. Henri turned around to face the twosome, he lowered his bow and said, "He-hey, how's it up people?" Henri greeted them. Funny enough, that's what T-J had just asked, but Henri had made that his greeting and he wasn't going to change it. He wore the usual Camp Half-Blood shirt, under a zipped hoodie that he had been given last Christmas. "Come on Jared, let's get sushi." Henri said. Henri was a master of metaphors, like for instance, 'Let's get sushi' meant 'Let's do target practice' which was kind of weird, but funny too. Sometimes Henri used the stupidest metaphor, and they'd all laugh their butts off. Usually at dinner, which was annoying because you had a mouthful of food.

"Alright." Jared said, simply. He pulled an arrow from his quiver and got his bow up straight. "T-J, throwdown." Henri said, which was Henri-an for "Do a coin-toss." Henri wasn't like this all the time, but occasionally his metaphors were only understandable to his friends. T-J grabbed a coin from his pocket, an ancient Greek coin at that, and threw it up into the air. He caught it it and said "Heads". Now everyone knew 'heads' was just another word for 'Henri' so that meant he got first shot. Without hesitation he pulled an arrow from his quiver, placed the end between his fingers, pulled the strong back and shot. The arrow struck right in the middle of the 20-feet target. Jared had next shot, he grabbed his arrow, pulled back the strong of Artemis's Bow and shot the arrow. It lunged through the air, and struck right beside Jared's arrow. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that Jared's arrow had sliced off the right-side plumes of Henri's arrow. Henri chuckled. "Dude, that's the fourth arrow this week." he said. "But you still got less points than me." Henri teased.

Next up was the 30-feet target, and Henri had first shot. His arrow sliced through the air, and managed to strike the 8 ring. Next was Jared, who was determined to do better. He took his arrow from the quiver, placed it upon his bow and aimed it at the target. If he wanted to get better than the 8-ring, he had to try hard. The annoying thing was that Henri's power was boosted in the sun, which wasn't fair. But it was like this every day. Jared sighed, and launched his arrow. It struck on the 9-ring, which was a first on the 30-feet target against Henri, who almost always won.
"Well, well, brother. Looks like you finally beet me on the thirty." Henri said. "And I pinned you on the twenty, so there's only one way to settle this. Bring out...the thirty point one." Henri said in a dramatic tone. Jared hated the thirty point one, because his best record on that was the 4-ring, which really sucked, especially for a Demigod. The only trick to it was to move the thirty feet target one centimeter further. It may not have seemed to make that much difference, but it seemed like being a Demigod meant you had your limits programmed before you were born. One centimeter too much and you suddenly fell to the rank of amateur.

The son of Apollo, Henri had the first shot. He launched his arrow as fast he could, which was a mistake. It struck the 5-ring. When Jared took his arrow out, he was pretty sure he was gonna lose again, so there was only one thing to do: try to destroy Henri's arrow. It was hard to do, but in these matches, when you managed to do it, your opponent's points drop back to zero. This was Jared's lucky day, as he pulled the strong back as far as he could, and launched the arrow, it struck right on Henri's arrow and sliced it in two. "What?! That's illegal!" Henri teased. "Ha, it's illegal for you to lose." Jared said, arms crossed and staring at his victory.

***

Unfortunately, the fun was soon to end. Jared had to make his way over to the Capture the flag game. As stated before, he hated this game. As the three neared the edge of the forest, Jared and T-J broke off from Henri, who went to go join the Blue team. Jared thought about it, and he didn't understand why he and his sister had to be on separate teams. After all, they were both children of Artemis. Even here, Jared was treated like the odd child.

Among the crowd of the Red team, Jared was sure he could hear a familiar voice. He looked around and finally found its source: A girl with a quiver and a bow, probably a child of Apollo. This voice was easily recognizable for some reason, and Jared was sure it was the person that his sister Luna had been talking near the Artemis cabin.

As Jared listened to Chiron explain the rules of the game all over again, he asked T-J "Hey, T-J, do you like this game?" T-J chuckled and replied "Umm, duh, who doesn't?" Jared chuckled lightly at this. "I don't." he said.

Thanks. Since I won't be RPing on anything for the day, I decided to take time for this SU. I should have it finished today, sorry that I haven't done so yet.

Edit: Finished My SU. I attempted to make a whole SU in first person. Something original. Hope you like it.
