Note - I am looking for another person to help me GM this RP, since it was suggested to me that sandbox RP's need more GM-ing than plotted ones. If interested please let me know.


At times, having siblings can suck. If you're older, you have to set the right example for the younger ones. If you're younger, you have to try to be just like the older ones. If you're in the middle, you get both of the above, plus often being ignored. So, being in one of those ludicrously large families, the kind that get their own reality shows from sheer size, must be hell. And sometimes it can literally be hell.
After all, demons, as servants of Satan, have not only the task of making the world a worse place for humans, but also making more demons. Lots more demons. It's not uncommon for an incubus or succubus to have twenty kids or more, which leads to interesting family dynamics, especially for you. You're one out of twenty-five demon kids, living in the second circle of hell with your succubus mother. Have fun.
It is a sandbox RP, but you choose from a list of premade characters. A few vague traits are listed, but you can expand on those traits in any way you wish.

Rules and Notes

-Choose one to three characters. To sign up, just post which character you have chosen, and a short blurb, written in full sentences, elaborating on their personality traits in the direction you have chosen to go with them. (See the ones I put under "My Characters.")
-This roleplay operates in a universe similar to American Gods by Neil Gaiman, where every god from every religion exists, and the more believers each god has, the more power they have.
-However, the layout and locations in hell is based on Dante's Divine Comedy, with circles of hell each connected to a specific sin. Your character lives in the second circle, for those who have committed the sin of lust. This circle is characterized by heavy winds that blow people clean off their feet and into sharp rocks. However...
-Demons aren't affected by the punishments of hell like human souls are; a human soul can be burning in agony in the same flame a demon is happily using to roast marshmallows. As such, the wind doesn't affect you.
-Demons can visit and teleport around earth, and take a human-like form, but even in human form they will have horns and a tail. The tail is prehensile and can grab stuff.
-Incubi and succubi are demons that have relations with sleeping humans. Incubi are male, succubi are female. This is why the RP is rated M, but still, all "feeding" has to take place off-screen.
-Cambions are the offspring of a demon and a human. They have less power than a demon, but still have some power. They don't HAVE to be evil, and every so often a cambion will manifest random powers that are MORE powerful than its own parents. They do not have horns and tail and can fit perfectly in the human world. (Merlin was a cambion, for example.)
-Kobolds are mischievous shapeshifters that usually take the form of little elves.
-Nagas are snake demons found primarily in Eastern culture more than Western.
-Kappas are turtley-ducky demons. They take the souls of drowning people, particularly children, but can be distracted by a nice juicy cucumber. They're kind of morally neutral.
-This is basically a day-to-day life sandbox RP where you explore the daily life of a mythical creature rather than a typical human.
-Feel free to add any extra characters and NPCs you want including other demons, human victims for them to torment or even befriend, angels, et cetera. However, these characters can be bunnied by everyone unless you specify they can't be. Feel free to create your character's father!
-As far as appearances go, all the demons in the family are blonde, blue eyed, and baby-faced so they tend to be mistaken as younger than they are by those who don't know them.
-Final note: I'm an early childhood major and it bothers the living hell out of me when people attempt to roleplay young children and have dem tawk wike dis. Real children honestly don't talk like that, unless they're two or three. At three they're growing out of it. By four they sound mostly like an adult, just with less vocabulary and occasional grammar errors like "I goed to school." You don't need to have a degree in children, just DON'T MAKE DEM TAWK WIKE DIS. Or I will rage.

My Characters

-Katherina Franziska, Kaethe for short. She is 55 years old, and the mother of all these children. She is a succubus. She has even more children than the average demon, because she loves babies and small kids. However, older children aren't as "cute" to her, and she is not the greatest mother, so at that point she'll have another one and pay much less attention to the older ones. Right now she's crazy about doting on Mari, Onyx, Cassie and Olie. Menopause finally hit her, coming late for demons, and she is upset that she can't pop out even more babies now. She loves to give her kids bizarre hippie names. Her first language is German, and her English is pretty broken. She's promiscuous, and most of her children have different fathers, some she has no idea who. Lastly, she loves cake and ice cream, and has the bizarre ability to always remain thin no matter how much she eats, which is a creepy lot, like a whole cake and whole gallon tub ice cream per day.

-Diamond Moonbeam, Di for short. He is 25 years old, and the black sheep of the family. He is half incubus, and half baku, which is a benevolent creature from Shinto mythology that eats nightmares. In essence, a baku is pretty much the polar opposite of the lecherous and nightmare-causing incubus, and so the two sides of himself basically cancel out, hence him being the black sheep. He's bullied a lot by other demons, even those within his own family. But, Rainy and Quoia get along with him well, being less evil than the others and close in age to him. Personality-wise, he's kind, lazy, and flirty. He's extremely vain, but that's because he doesn't have much faith in himself otherwise. So he has low self esteem but mess up his hair and you will pay. He loves reptiles and cheesy B horror movies, and quotes Evil Dead too much. Groovy!

-Daisuke Yamada. He is 52 years old, and he is Di's father. As such, he's a full-blooded baku. He's kind and caring and loves kids. He'll do whatever it takes to keep nightmares away from children he doesn't even know. After all, with all the daily stresses of life, sleep should be a time of peace. He often takes the form of a Malayan tapir, but in his humanoid form, he looks like a tall, skinny Japanese guy with long hair and glasses. He's Kaethe's on again, off again boyfriend, which causes lots of problems for her since he is so hated by demons that they wonder why she lets herself be near him. But who knows? Maybe she's just using him for his kindness, or maybe she does love him? He's so smitten with her that he doesn't care. He also recognizes her tendency to not pay attention to her children, and thus is there to help make up for that.

As you sign up, please answer the following question to make sure you read the rules and such: what is the best way to keep a kappa from eating your child's soul? Answer is above and if you don't know that means you haven't read all the things you should.

This seems like it could be fun. I have been looking for something more laid back. Quick question though, if I may? I realize that this is a sandbox RP, but I was wondering if there is a basic motive or other? Something to fuel the RP and keep it going forward. Then again, I suppose any side plots could be introduced as we go, since there is that freedom. Maybe something with Demon Hunters or whatnot...

Nonetheless, consider this a placeholder for my SUs for Season, Rainy, and Karma. (Since there was no SU format, I took the liberty in creating one for myself. Is that alright? If not I will change it into the basic paragraph. Let me know.)

Yaaay thank you for joining~

I figure a plot will emerge as we do stuff, and if not we can discuss in the OOC thread what we want the plot to be? I have a semi-antagonist guy I could throw in if we need him. XD

Well, this is certainly unique. I think I'll apply for Omega, Amity, and Sunny, if that's alright with you.

Omega Silver (Omega) - male, age 30, full-blooded demon, evil, stylish, brooding

At age 30, Omega is one of the older siblings, and has been neglected more than the others. While this does bother him, he knows nothing he does will change his mother's ways, and spends his time mostly away from the others. He goes by his given name, and refuses to answer to any nicknames, despite some of his younger siblings calling him "Megs", a name he despises. Despite his borderline depressive habits, he truly enjoys being a demon, and dresses the part with impeccable style. His human form is tall and thin, dressed in a brown pinstripe suit with a dark red tie. He keeps his hair short and neatly styled, and always wears his black horn-rimmed glasses, despite obviously not needing them.

Amity Sparkle (Amity) - female, age 18, cambion, caring, creative, sweet

A rarity for a demon, Amity is a kind and loving girl. At age 18, she is firmly the middle child, but her motherly nature and sweet demeanor generally cause others to treat her like their cool big sister. Or they mercilessly pick on her for what they percieve as weakness. Amity doesn't mind, and lets her siblings treat her however they want. She still cares for them, but she won't tolerate the older siblings picking on the younger ones. It's one of the few ways to actually make her mad, and she gets scary when she's mad, but is easily forgiving. She is timid around humans, and rarely goes to Earth except to feed. Her hair is long and smooth, and she tends to dress conservatively, wearing a simple skirt and a sweater to hide her considerable assets, making her look more cute than sexy.

Sunflower Shine (Sunny) - female, age 26, full-blooded demon, evil, girly, ditzy

Being an evil demon who feeds on sleeping humans, "Sunny" is kind of a strange name. Even stranger is the girl who has the name. Sunny's mind might not be all there, but she genuinely doesn't care. She's flighty and impulsive, but hates doing things by herself. She'll almost always be in the company of one of her siblings, unless she wants to go wandering around Earth or Hell. If no one goes with her, she'll usually come back with wild tales of her "adventures", but usually she just goes and goofs off.
