Here is my SU that I hope to update during the future.

Spoiler:
Name: Mugen L. Marcus
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Epithet/Nickname: "Jetstream"
Appearance: (Going to hold out on an actual drawing and see if I can make my own. For now, I'll post a description.)

Marcus is considerably short for his age, standing at 5'3" (to his dismay) and is a dirty blonde. Bangs cover most of his forehead and his hair reaches down to his upper back. His skin is lightly tanned from spending his days out in the sun and his eyes are a dark blue. Aspiring to be muscular like most of the warriors of the sea he’s seen, he’s attempted to gain a muscular build by lifting weights, although the results can’t be seen on his muscles and he is slim. Often, he is seen with his arms crossed behind his head.

Mugen usually has a silver stopwatch around his neck that he got from a pirate who tipped him for helping unload his ship. It has an Ouroboros design on the outside. He also wears a shabby laced up t-shirt, tattered brown trousers , a black sash around his waist (made from the cloth of his father’s old jolly roger), and black sea boots.

Personality: Mugen has a strong sense of honor and loyalty to his family, even though he only knew his dad. He holds a natural distrust Marines because his father installed it into him during his younger years and Mugen himself was often mistreated by certain Marines in Loguetown. This caused him to be mischievous towards the Marines. Mugen is very carefree and free-spirited unless put in a situation threatening the safety of anyone he truly cares for. To this, he reacts especially hostile. Mugen can even be carefree when fighting; preferring to fight for fun and to pit his abilities against others and, because of this, he never voluntary takes an innocent life. He also dislikes having a leader he is at odds with and will never put himself in the situation unless needed.
He is somewhat good natured although his hesitant and selfish thoughts of self-preservation can make him reluctant to act immediately for the sake of others. Mugen is socially naïve because he hasn’t had much interaction with those his age. This may have lead him to seek solitude under normal conditions, but his father always told him that one day he would meet friends worth dying for, who would be worth more than any other treasure he could find across every ocean. Firmly, he believes in hard work to attain one’s desires as this was installed into him by his father throughout his childhood. During his early years, he was often told by his father to be “childish in thought, but that it was a good trait.” He is never jealous or envious of anyone because he wants himself to achieve greater than he could ever aspire to be. Mugen loves “cool souvenirs” and adventures more than any worldly desire.

History: He was born in Loguetown and raised by just his father, without ever venturing outside of the town. They lived a modest lifestyle that was accommodated with work for the two of them, Mugen being a courier and his father, a handyman. Their lifestyle certainly wasn’t lavish and they were often used to not having a dollar to their name. Often they were both pushed around by the Marines of the town for seemingly minor reasons and they weren’t a complete family, although his dad always managed to make the best of things and told Mugen of his days as a pirate. These stories captivated Mugen and soon, he longed to become a pirate to have his own stories to tell and to see the many sights of the world that he only heard from his father. Seeking to become a pirate, he became a worker at the Loguetown port to prepare himself seaworthy. He even, became physically conditioned because of the heavy lifting require for the job and trained himself to become stronger. This job was slightly frowned upon by his father, who wanted anything to deal with pirates behind him and for his son to not live a dangerous future.
Mugen’s work at the port was a dream come true. Even though he wasn’t able to go out sailing like he wanted, he was still able to see everyone who came through Loguetown from pirates seeking to travel the Grand Line to Merpeople, seeking to barter goods. This only fed his dreams to become a Pirate and Mugen felt even surer in his abilities once heard plenty of stories. He has memorized every single one (although he isn’t as well versed with any other knowledge) and loves to hear new ones or even hear the old stories retold. Quietly, Mugen began saving up money to set out to sea in secret without his father's knowing.
These days soon turned darker as Mugen's father turned up missing one late afternoon. As Mugen returned home, he returned to find his father’s belongings cleared out. Searching his small home for his father, he immediately knew something was wrong. Sadly, Mugen searched for his father around town and even resorted to asking the Marines he hated so much for help, but they rejected him without any effort to help and no one around the town knew Marcus' father by the same name he knew him by. Mugen then knew that his father had lied about his name. Returning home to find clues, the only things his dad left behind were his tattered jolly roger and a tattered sheet of paper with “Mugen” written on it that he keeps in his sash. Retrieving the money for his stash, he set out feeling hurt, but with objectives set firm in his mind.


Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: As a brawler, Marcus is a natural at hand to hand unarmed combat and he is agile and physically strong. His agility makes him capable of feats such as hopping from rooftop to rooftop and his strength is trained just enough to break cement bare handed although it's not his fighting abilities that are as unique as it is his tolerance for pain. His relentless fighting spirit overlooks his comparative strength. He has no experience with firearms aside from cannons, which he is only slightly accustomed to.


Goal/Dream: To go on many adventures like his father. The stories his dad told him, along with the tales he was told working at the port and the fact that adventuring is in his blood are the main cause of this.

Other/Quirks:
Mugen almost never rejects a fair challenge.
Dislikes comments about him being a "pretty boy," suggestions to him appearing feminine and he hates any comments about his height.
Mugen loves anything entertaining, especially stories and has a photographic memory.
He can’t read.
He is also Gynophobic and minor contact with females makes him dizzy.

Alright, here's my sign up. I added a good portion more than the previous version, in particular adding a decent bit of info about his experiences in the Marines. I added some to the personality as well, but have always been more of a build it as I go kind of guy, so I'm not sure how well it came out.


Name:
Graves Markus

Age: 20

Gender: Male

Epithet/Nickname: Dead Eye [Military nickname]

Appearance: Markus stands at roughly 5 foot 10 inches, with a slim-ish frame. Markus is white with black ruffled hair. Markus wears an altered uniform consisting of a white vest over a black dress shirt. As an Ensign, Markus has the honor of being allowed to wear the trademark coat of the Marines, bearing the Kanji for Justice on it's back. Markus chose to forgo this, however, in favor of stitching the design himself onto the back of his vest. Over his uniform, Markus wears black suspenders, which serve as the carrier of a hooking mechanism for transporting his rifle on his back. On his left hip, a holster is present for his pistol.

Personality: Markus is a fairly serious individual. He is not the most social, having been denied the proper interactions a child should have at a young age, and sometimes comes off as rude, often unintentionally, as he can be pretty frank about things. He's not uptight though, and does know how to relax. Markus has a strong, though perhaps a bit skewed, sense of justice, and will not tolerate any injustice he believes to be witnessing. His years in the Marines have made him particularly sensitive to the corruption of the World Government. As a result he has become more tolerant of the behavior of some pirates, seeing them as the embodiment of freedom. Markus avoids emotional connections with others because of the loss of his grandparents, not wanting to lose someone he cares about again.

History: Markus was a child who constantly was at odds with the other children of his home. Many of them bullied him, and made life very difficult for him and his grandparents. He was not as strong as the other children, and instead had to find less conventional ways to deal with them. Having admired the rifle displayed in his Grandfather's quarters, Markus took to making his own projectiles. His favorite and perhaps most successful of which was a mix between a crossbow and a slingshot, which he called a cross-shot, as he could not think of a better name.

One night, the bullies set out to get back at Markus, by sneaking into his room at night to smash all his devices. An unfinished tool made to help his grandmother light the fire place more effectively, sparked a fire in the house, which Markus barely managed to escape. His grand parents on the other hand were not so lucky. Amazingly, the only thing which survived the fire with only minimal scorching, was the old rifle in his Grandfather's room. He lived as an orphan from then on, keeping himself secluded, and avoiding other people in his village except when he needed something. The other children never seemed to learn, though, and continued to tease him after the accident.

Some years later, Markus joined the Marines hoping he could help prevent such events from happening. He joined right at the height of the campaign against the King Pirates. He gained quite a reputation as one of the best Marksmen in the Marines, and appeared to be on the fast track to the higher ranks of the Marines. However, while tracking Pirates through a string of islands, Markus's first mission hit a metaphorical road block. The Pirates seemed to have disappeared entirely without a trace. Markus's commander, "White Cannon" Wilhelm, decided that the inhabitants of the last island known to have the pirates must have been harboring them. Markus tried to convince Wilhelm that there was no evidence to support this idea, but it didn't matter, Wilhelm outranked Markus. What followed was a brutal massacre brought about by the very people Markus had respected for so long. In the end, the Pirates they were looking for had never even been in contact with the village.

Markus followed orders like a good soldier for the duration of his time in the Marines, atrocities and all. But perhaps it was his misgivings about the way that the World Government was running things that caused something to spark inside of him when the last King Pirate was executed. And from a spark, sometimes fire is born...

Devil Fruit/Equipment/Weapon: Markus is primarily a Marksman, and as such carries a pair of guns on him, a rifle and a pistol, which he can wield together at the same time. Being right handed, he generally uses the rifle on his right and his pistol on the left. The rifle is noticeably worn with some gold details, and a set of engraved initials: G.R. The Pistol is custom made with a small divot for resting the barrel of his rifle on, when precision is needed. The Rifle is also fitted with a bayonet for close quarters combat. While in the Marines, Markus learned how to use a cannon, which came pretty naturally to him with his prior experience. Markus is also a bit of a tinkerer and can make simple devices for handling simple problems. One example of this is the gun mounting system he created for storing his Rifle on his back.

Goal/Dream: Unhappy with the state of the Marines, Markus wishes to bring true justice to the land, the first step of which will be to bring down the World Government.

Other/Quirks: Markus tends to take things quite literally, often missing the point with analogies and metaphors, which can be difficult in the world of marines and pirates, where almost everything has a nickname. Even his own nickname confuses him, as he very clearly has a pair of fully functioning eyes. If a person isn't very specific, it can lead to disastrous misunderstandings. From time to time, he may try to tell a joke or make a metaphor himself, but it will always result in him just saying exactly what something is without any real humor.

After reviewing the sign ups (with a little input from SV) and given the power invested in me by SV, I have reached my decision concerning the SUs. It was not an easy choice, mind you.

Congratulations to both NecrumWarrior and Synthet! You are now part of the crew. This is not a knock on the other SUs by Fortworth and LightSpeed, as you guys have some great characters and should spots ever open up, I or SV will reach out personally and see if you guys want to come abroad with the characters you created. Thank you very much for your interest.

NecrumWarrior and Synthet. Feel free to post on Duke Island. My advice, if you want to get involved with the crew right away, is to witness the fight and for one reason or another and say "Hi!" But we love creativity so experiment if you fancy it!

Sounds good to me! By the way, a welcome to both of you from myself as well. If you need anything at all, be it a summary of the events so far, clarification on something, or anything else, feel free to VM or PM myself or Raikiri.

Also, if you have any ideas of how you'd like to jump in, feel free to also ask! We'd love to hear the suggestions and we're willing to work with you to make it happen.

So I know there's a lot of NPCs we've introduced so far...so we figure we'll just pile on all of those with the ones we just introduced in the new post. Enjoy!

You're welcome to interact with them if you choose, though they'll likely run into you eventually too. I'll be updating the wiki with them soon!

I'm unsure if we should get into a fight right after I finished up with, technically, two fights XD And I dunno if we're even supposed to be strong enough to beat one of these guys! I guess it's up to SV and what he thinks would be a good idea.

@SB - I was also kind of worried about them getting into another fight so soon. I figure if we do it we'll include comedy - like blaming each other for the bad luck and going on about how terrible there day had been. Also, who said we have to win? If you don't like the idea we will get up to other shenanigans instead :D

We'll talk to SV about it! It's not that I don't like fighting, but I can imagine if we get beat, there's not alot more we can really do the rest of the story Let's just wait and see!

Fair enough haha, honestly one of the biggest reasons I include so much combat in my posts is simply because I write that much better than everything else I think haha

Both of you have good points.

Ultimately, by following the major plot of finding the treasure, the RP crew will naturally run into these pirates eventually, so it might be best to confront them in that way. Of course, if you'd really like to fight them ahead of time, we could definitely arrange that as well! It's really less about what Raikiri and I think is best and more about what you guys wanna do, so if you're itching to do something, feel free to PM or VM myself or Raikiri to let us know.

But I'll keep in mind that you write combat posts better than everything else, so I'll be sure to throw more your way, gimme. xD

You did say you wanted to do a jp with Kuzo Skellen and Vance so if you're still up for that, let me know here or on the pad!

Well, I didn't say with Kuzo, basically just Skellen and Vance going around, trying to get information out of some locals to get some kind of hints as to where the treasure is. All we'd need you for, is to be NPCs to give us proper guidance and such

Nice posts, Alby and Necrum! Very intruiging :3

Oh, and Necrum, once your guy finally does meet Vance... I dunno if he'd recognize him. He -did- go to Marine... uh, school? Academy? Whatever you might wanna call it, and he's the son of a captain, after all. I'll leave that up to you, though. Just thought I'd let you know!

Well, Graves is a little younger, I think if they had met each other it would have only been in passing, since Graves isn't a very sociable person.

Yeah, but he may still have heard rumors of a certain captain's son running away from the marines, and if Graves saw Vance using the techniques usually reserved for Marine training... well, he might be able to piece it together. Again, I'll let you decide on that

Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention to the two new players! We do have a pad where we sometimes talk and share ideas. I'll send you the link through PM and skype so that you both have it. Sorry for not mentioning this earlier!
