Hey there! Welcome to my shipper! I've got a few babies for you to play with if you want to~

For your convenience, I'm going to give each of them a brief rundown below.

**Note: Also, I love to rapid fire posts! If you want to rapid fire a thread, I'm happy to do so with any character. "Reply speed" is irrelevant for rapid firing, as I usually can write a post for any character in 30 minutes or less. //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif


Reese Marshall a little unsteady
Reese
pretty straight & widowed (aka single)
38 ▲ construction worker ▲ depressed
ISFJ-T | Chaotic Good | Hufflepuff |
Dauntless | Daemon: Beagle

Generally, Reese is hard to get to know and hard to get along with. He's cold, abrasive, and distant. There is nothing about him that would really make most people want to be around him, except for the underlying mystery of why. He seems like a man who is in many ways dead on the inside, who goes through the motions of every day life because he knows that he is expected to -- unless there are sports. Sports bring him back to life in a millisecond.

Friends, because of the above, are not easy for Reese to manage, but he does acquire some here or there. If you can get past the depression, anger, and self-hatred, he mean all the best all the time. He's playful, but there isn't a bone in his body that is actually malicious; he's just trying to punish himself continuously for what he's done in his past.

Enemies are incredibly easy for Reese to garner, though the truth is that he probably won't remember slugging your best friend or calling you a dirty name. Enemies take energy, and Reese doesn't really have that. So... I guess more than 'enemies' he has people who dislike him, and whom he's probably slightly irritated with.

Reese is i-won't-say-i'm-in-love with Bruce Vaughan. He is closed for love plots, other than relationships between the ages of 13-22.Love is going to be a hard sell for Reese (but not for me. I am such a sap for love.) Long story short, he had a not-wife (she wouldn't say yes to his proposals, but they were together for approximately ten years) with whom he had four children. All of his family except for his youngest daughter died in a tragic accident that he blames himself for. As you can no doubt imagine, he's scared to try again and horrified that he might make a connection only to break everything again.
Like I said though, I am such a sap for love plots, so reese is open for love plots based on chemistry of characters and writers



Vels Matthew Kruger i can hear all the lies
VELS
straight & smitten (wanted)
27 ▲ double-agent (DEA/Cartel) ▲ light-hearted
ESTJ-A | True Neutral | Slytherclaw |
Erudite | Daemon: Bateleur Eagle

Generally, Vels is pretty easy to get along with. He's playing both sides of the field and no one knows (or rather, those who do know think that he's playing the other side for them). Vels lies like the smoothest velvet, and can lure almost anyone into believing that he is on their side and has their best interest at heart. Sometimes, he really does. Vels was raised a Malachite and some habits die hard -- he often helps homeless or disadvantaged people in any way that he can.

The DEA and Cartel are both under the impression that he works for them, and where his loyalties lie are entirely dependent on the hour and who he's talking to. This said, he has enemies and colleagues at both locations. Many people in the DEA find him disconcerting because of how powerful his power is ("how do we trust him to not use it against us? He should be entirely suppressed"); As a Capo in the Cartel, Vels earns a lot of anger based around the combination of his age and power set -- in some ways, he is #3 or #4 in the ranks (some would say #2). Almost no one has ever seen him use his powers against someone else anywhere but in an interrogation chamber, so very few people outside of the Institute have any idea what he would look like in an offensive situation.

Friends are pretty easy for Vels. He doesn't make a lot of intense, deep connections right off the bat, but unless you're hurting someone whom he wants to protect, he isn't likely to have any issue with you. Most of his social connections are with in his jobs, but it doesn't stop him from going to a club or casino.

Enemies are ... well, Vels collects them like sand on a beach. He's the interrogator (which is a nice word for 'torture master' of the Cartel) and he's a T1 Evolute (which is like being the worst of the already unwanted). Vels kills, arrests, and subdues a lot of people from all walks of life, so a lot of people want him dead, gone, or hurt.

Love has already found Vels. He's crazy about a girl who maybe does or doesn't know that they're a thing in his mind. He's a little awkward, a little forward, and a little over-protective, and all of it adds up to a lot of presents and flowers when he thinks he might have done something wrong. (In other words, he's a giant mush).



Beuford "Bo" Fierro every breath is a gift
BO
pan & single
31 ▲ Assistant Museum Curator ▲ selfless
ENFP | Lawful Good | Ravenpuff |
Abnegation | Daemon: Loris

In general, Bo is about as sweet as they come. He is selfless, gentle, and good-hearted. He sees the best in everyone and everything, not because that is how he is naturally, but because he had made that choice in his life. He wants to be as close to Harmony as he can get and he would like to help everyone else reach Harmony. He loves art in all forms (practical and fine), and even sees much of the world's existence as a work of art given by God.

Friends are something Bo makes with ease. He's kind, open-minded, and gentle-hearted. If you're the type who likes people who see beauty in the world, then he will be everything you've ever wanted to talk to in your whole life. Bo likes everyone the way that they are... so, yeah. This is probably where just about everyone will end up. (At least from his perspective.)

If you're the kind of person who hates puppies, then perhaps you'll be Bo's enemy. He doesn't like people who hurt others and doesn't really believe in doing anything for personal gain (if another person is hurt in the process). Bo is gentility made manifest -- people who don't like that might hate him, but it's almost impossible to make this character dislike anyone.

Love interest wise, Bo is about as pan as they come. He doesn't find an issue with giving or receiving pleasure, and is an incredibly caring lover. Bo has had quite a few long term relationships, but none of them worked out. (Such is life.) He's always wanted a family of his own--since he's never really had one. Bo is open to long- and short term relationships based upon chemistry of characters and writers.



S . asha Ryan Liesser wolf in sheep's clothing
SASHA
demisexual & single
44 ▲ Chemical Engineer/Entente Leader ▲ calculating
INTJ | Chaotic Evil | Slytherin |
Erudite | Daemon: Serval

Generally, Sasha is an unassuming presence. He is rather quiet, rather withdraw, and rather polite. He's actually remarkably pleasant to be around and gives no sign of the danger that talking to him him (or wronging him) might incur. Unlike many criminal master minds, Sasha isn't in the business because he likes murder, blood, torture, or any mixture of horrors. Instead, he enjoys the exercise and mental stimulation that goes along with the accumulation of money and power.

As the leader of the Entente (The Monarch), Sasha has his fingers in the criminal networks and high political and governmental stations throughout the city. He uses his intellect and criminal web to identify weak links and those who are corrupt and then extorts them for whatever prize they deem worthy. The Entente contacts their clients, and while they might have repeat clients, they are impossible to summon. Sasha's identity as the Monarch is unknown to all except his most trusted lieutenants, most of which have been mentally programmed to kill themselves in the event that they are captured and linked back to the Entente. Sasha is ALWAYS open for Entente-based threads~ If your character has a wish that they would like to come true, the Entente will be happy to whisper in their ear.

Friends actually come rather easily to Sasha. At least, perceived friends. While Sasha's persona as the leader of the Entente is unknown to any of his so-called friend, regardless of their level of closeness, Sasha is a pleasant and well mannered man. He enjoys running experiments both in the lab and on his own time at home. It is rare that he's not running at least two experiments in his home at any given moment, and he is happy to explore ideas and hypotheses with other people if they share his interest. This said, Sasha rarely makes any connections past the surface level and have give-or-take no sense of loyalty.

Enemies Disclaimer: Before we get started on enemies, I just want to be abundantly clear that this character is incredibly dangerous. As a player, I will not hurt/kill/maim your character without your permission, but I also will not accept plots that would end with that without being UTTERLY CLEAR that this is where the plot will go (and your acceptance of the consequences of the plot line). He's the head of one of the two most notable criminal organization in the city; he literally put out hits on his children and killed his wife to get where he is. He IS NOT someone to be trifled with for light/fun plots.

Sasha's Enemies

Love is is a weird thing... Sasha has a "housekeeper" who satisfies him when he needs it. Any other kind of romantic/sexual relationship with this character is going to be hard to muster. I'm not opposed, but it will have to be some hard-core real in character build to get anything real out of Sasha. He is not opposed to using his body as a means to an end, so he is happy to manipulate someone by using physical means. Sasha is OPEN to long- and short term relationships based on chemistry (or usefulness) of characters.

Bo & Lauren

On a dark and stormy night, a group of drunkards descended upon a museum. Of the group of seven, two looked about to puke, three leaning upon each other to walk and completely lacking in inhibition, one singing at the top of their lungs and one and only clear-headed one of the lot regretting his decision to accompany the group for one more stop.

Together with said sober individual (Lauren) and maybe some help from security, Bo attempts to stop the group from wrecking havoc!

I also wonder how horrible it could be if Bo accidentally replicated Lauren's power =D

I love this idea! The only problem is that ... Usually museums are closed by 5 or so... I guess we could have them hosting a special event? Maybe something for Domesday? Or a banquet dinner type thing that would make him still around?

(He also lives in the cemetery, if you want to do it there instead of the museum... O.o if you want it to be kinda spooooky)

5? that's early D:
Domesday special sounds good; Bo's museum would be having related exhibits + extended hours + discounted/free entry?
I'm totally down for spooky too though, which would you prefer? xD

*grabby hands* gimme the posts. I think we have asserted in so many less words that Vels and Larissa are probably the ones who might most get along. Tell me, do you wanna have some back history? Might she have known him from his cartel connections when she was slumming it with dealers on the street? Or perhaps from her CI work? Or do we wanna start something new for them?

Lacey x Vels: I really want to throw these two together, either as enemies or collaborators, whatever sounds most fun for you. Lacey isn't exactly a "double agent," but her job is to help Ark City's shadier characters stay "respectable" - or at least out of prison. They would very likely have crossed paths as she helped people he works with manage (or hide) their money or skirt around various charges. Perhaps she even knows some of his secrets, since she has access to a bunch of DEA and other legal records. I love the idea of them having been in each other's orbit for a while, though whether they see each other as a threat or a potential source of help is your call. Thoughts?

@Kit
Vels & Larissa
Let's give them a history. >> I like the idea that she met him in the underground. Vels definitely worked in the drug circles (still does), so they could have met then, and have just gotten closer over the years.
Vels' is shady enough that if you want him to know about her power, he wouldn't tell anyone (and probably would offer to get her a fake ID so that she doesn't get in trouble).

Vels also loves music, so we could super have them meet up at karaoke nights in Nautas or whatever, if Larissa is into that. XD

@Agate
Vels & Lacey
Vels has connections all over the underground and in the DEA, so it wouldn't be surprising if they've run into each other now or again. He is a fairly high ranking member of the Cartel, and I'm sure she'd heard from other Cartel members that he's considered the most dangerous person aside from the Godfather. I feel like they might make friends (or .... allies) -- mostly because Vels is so morally ambiguous that being his enemy is rather dangerous. ._. (All his loyalties are to people... not to organizations/ethics which makes everything more complicated.)

Maybe thread-wise, we could have one of the Cartel members in trouble -- and either Vels goes to her, or vice versa, to figure out how to get this person off... because pshhh. Vels likes random Cartel member. XD

As a side note, probably 99% of Vels' file is redacted, just because of how much the DEA is doing sketchy-as-heck things with him. >> Hurray, working for the government.

I definitely like the idea of them having to plot together to get one of Vels' buddies out of some trouble they got themselves into, but also not being able to leverage Vels' influence at the DEA because of the delicacy of the situation. Do you wanna start the thread or shall I?

Totally hear you about the redacted file; just know that if you ever do want a plot where someone knows something about Vels that he's not super keen on entering the rumor mill, Lacey would be a good candidate. (Perhaps one of her other clients spilled some beans on Vels to try and save their own skin, and she's keeping the intel in her back pocket or something.)

Focused in soundwaves creation and manipulation, Vels can make sounds loud enough to break glass or even bones, or he can make perfect silence. He can hear every conversation in the city at every moment of every day (but he's gotten damn good at finding the ones that matter). His suppressants push his abilities down to a 100 yard diameter, so ... that's better, right?

I am 1000% down for a Vels/Larissa karaoke sesh in Nautas. Want me to throw a starter up? Also I would like him to know about her powers, one of the few that does. She might come to him down the road for a fake ID but I'm not sure she would have yet. Right now she's got her ID that says she's a noncarrier typic. Unless you think it would be a good move for her to have a fake saying she's registered should she need it? I'm not sure how it would work. I feel like having a fake ID that's physical evidence is riskier than being an evo who's powers aren't obvious? And of course, yes, yes, yes, to the other connections we discussed and the piano. <3 <3 @Thyme

This all sounds great <3 I think you're probably right, because why would anyone want to pretend to be an evo. >> "I want to ride the less nice Skyrail cars!!!"

The ability to interface with another Evo's abilities and augment or suppress them. Can also sense Evolute abilities in a 25 foot radius.

Rose and Reese
Rose could possibly know of his family, since she was also born to a wealthy lineage. It wouldn't be abnormal for their families to have interacted in the past. We could do a situation where she notices him out somewhere and recognizes him. She'll of course notice the change in his behavior and demeanor, and most likely end up offending him in some way with her brash words. Idk where it would go from there to be honest, just throwing things out there.

Overall, Rose is a pretty nasty person now a days and she would probably end up saying some things to piss him off. Although, seeing as how he is emotionally numb he might be able to just pay no mind to her insults and mocking behavior. Let me know if you have any ideas for them.


Rose and Vels
I'm not sure how many people actually know about Vels status as a undercover operative? Regardless, due to her paranoid nature she doesn't trust him. It's not the fact that he is a tier one that bothers her, for she feels confident in her own abilities to be able to counteract him if it ever came to that. It's the fact that he is able to do what he can do and still carry such a carefree personality. Therefore, I could see her potentially doing a lot of digging into his personal life to find out more about him, particularly if he was concealing anything shady.

Rose would be keen to flirt with Kels every chance she got, if for no reason other to make him uncomfortable. Also she might just do this to see if she can annoy Peyton. She would definitely see the potential for exploiting his power and status in the future, and start to cultivate that now by making him a potential ally. He still wouldn't be immune to her snark or bitchy personality however, she just wouldn't be AS mean. Let me know if you have any ideas!


Rose and Bo
So right off the back she wouldn't like him. One facet of her powers allow her to be able to sense someone else's abilities, and his powers would make it SOOO confusing for her. Not to mention the potential he has to cancel her own powers out. Then you add on the fact that he has a complete opposite personality to her own, and it's a recipe for disaster.

Their relationship would probably consist a lot of Rose being rude and condescending, while simultaneously seeking his aide on something. I can't think of any plots or anything for these two at the moment, but let me know what you think!

@Mika @Rose Caswell

Rose & Reese
Reese used to play a lot of banter and mock games before things went so bad for him six years ago. So, it might be fun to play them when they were younger, maybe tossing snarkiness back and forth at a party.

If she's nice enough, we could do something like... She sees him and goes to play snarky time like she usually did, and she maybe knows about what happened (it was all over the paper) but she doesn't realize how messed up he really is? He's not actually super fun to harass because he hates himself far more than anyone in the world could. he's much lighter hearted when drunk though! If you want to go that route!

Rose and Vels
Omgosh. Please have her flirt with him. He literally is the worst at love relationships and will be so confused. His status as a double agent is super under wraps. Basically... Both organizations think they're working for them and it's all hella confusing. Like the DEA said "be part of the Cartel" and the cartel is like "be part of the DEA" soooo. Yeap. Most normal lackies just think he works for one or the other. And all the high ups think he works for their side.

Anyway, maybe they get put on some case together. They need Vels to listen in on something and Rose is his amplifier?

Rose & Bo
Bo gets called into the DEA rather frequently to help out. Maybe they need rose to aplify his powers for some reason when they call him in? Like they need a T2 telepath, but theirs are all on other cases or something and all they've got is this uncooperative T5 telepath who is a villain or iono. Something like that.

We could have just a dumb meet and greet. Maybe Bo literally runs into her when he's heading for the door and spills her coffee or whatever and he heals her (with her permission of course) and then something else happens and he uses another power and she's like /the. fuck. This guy can't have multiple powers./
