Character Name: Sally Sowerberry

Age: 19

Species: Human (With Telepathy)

Gender: Female 

Appearance: Sally Sowerberry, she is a young woman described with dark brown almost black hair and deep blue eyes. She is fair skinned, having an average height of 5'5 and an average weight of 180 pounds. Those who have the privilege of getting to know her and being in her company will see that she has a tattoo on her right wrist. This tattoo reads "Dreams can become Nightmares" it is a quote she has been accustom to almost all her life. He attire usually consist of long dresses, mostly burgundy, wine or black colored and simple one inch heels. Sometimes a matching lace glove here and there. 

History: Sally Marie Sowerberry, born on September 1st 1994, she has one sister by the name of Charlotte Sowerberry and two parents, Elizabeth and Nicholas Sowerberry. Her parents usually loved Charlotte, but they did not care much for Sally. Most of the time since the family business has been up and running. Sally would get stuck sleeping with the coffins in the basement. She can remember this one time when she was about six years old. Her parents were shouting at her calling her a devil and a murderous witch. They threw her into a coffin and locked her inside, she cried and screamed for help. That was when she smelled the smoke, her parents were trying to burn the house down, she cries and coughs as her parents stand out there watching the house burn. But someone saved her. She didn't know who it was all she knew was, she was pulled out of the coffin and carried outside but a large man. Since then she has been grateful of him. After that event, she still lived and slept with the coffins. Until one day Charlotte screamed out, Sally ran downstairs to see her mother and father dead. They trapped themselves in coffins and died due to lack of oxygen. Distraught and depressed, Sally and Charlotte decided to leave their hometown of London and move to Raven Hill, Illinois. Sally now 19 years old is living in Sowerberry Manor in Raven Hill, Illinois. She feels as though it is all her fault, while the two try to keep the family business running, Sally still sleeps in the basement and is mistreated and abused by her sister. Life for her has been a struggle which is why she has the tattoo on her wrist, she got it when she was 18 years old. It seems to be the only way she can live on through this hell known as life. 

Personality: Sally is a shy and quiet person. Although she if creative and carefree at times, most people<img src="…" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-size: 12px !important; line-height: normal !important; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;"> need to get to know her well enough in order to see that side. She may appear to be happy and go lucky but in all reality she is upset and crying on the inside. She only shares her past to those she truly trusts and that is through a method known as "Telepathy" though she can only share images and clips of the events. They are still seen to others none the less. She yearns to find love one day, but knows that no one could ever love her. She has chosen to accept that in this life and the next. 

Weaknesses: Her weakness for the most part are her memories. The fact that she cannot speak for herself and has to take whatever is given to her. Her past haunts her constantly and this is usually what leads her to shut everyone out. She can become extremely fatigued and lightheaded usually after sharing a memory with someone.  

Weapons: She only carries a simple Ottoman Dagger with her at all times. 

Abilities: She can share her own memories through telepathy. All she has to do is take you hands and then you can see the memory she has chosen to show to you.

Character Name: Rachael Lander

Age: 20

Species: Human (Sorceress)

Gender: Female

Appearance: Rachael is average in height and stature- being of a healthy weight and standing at 5''4. Many don't see her features because of the plush purple cloak she wears no matter the occasion. However those who have the privilege of her company will see that she has canvas white skin, grass green eyes and raven black hair. The hair of which travels from the top of her head down to her waist, styled in plaits that pull it away from her face. Her usual attire consists of her aforementioned purple cloak; it keeps her hidden. When removed, she can mostly be found wearing long and low-cut sleeveless dresses like many of the whores in her home town. But the dresses she wears are usual dark in colour, with ancient patterns, woven in gold.

History: Rachael was the daughter of a whore, born in the whore house of Alangia City- her father was the previous King. Being the daughter of a whore and consequently a bastard she had to live off the little money the old King (her father) threw her way. At the age of ten, her mother passed away of an unidentified disease and her Father was killed in a war soon after. She found no more kindness in the City of Alangia, so set off with a group of travellers, entertainers and gypsies. 

It was in that group of travellers, that she became very attached to one performer in particular, Madame Winters. Madame Winters used her actual power of Sorcery to perform 'magic tricks' to crowds of hundreds. It was her who first saw the Sorceress in Rachael. She trained Rachael, most of it was slight of hand, illusion and quick getaways. When Madame Winters grew old, she became senile and found it hard to communicate- Rachael took over her magic shows, using the money to pay for assistance. From the age of 12 and with the help of some of the other gypsy children- she had became an accomplished thief, a pickpocket. It wasn't long until time took her. By then, Rachael was 17, quite able at basic sorcery and very much a woman. She couldn't stay with the gypsy group, unless she wed one of their sons- an arrangement she couldn't bring herself to. So she left.

Now she wanders the lands, making money from robbing the rich- using her magical talents to humiliate those who do bad by people like herself and children. But secretly, she yearns for something more- adventure.

Personality: Rachael is quite introverted and quiet. Though, when provoked she can be very sassy and even manipulative. There is a part of her however that yearns for adventure and love- romance. She has no problem stealing from those who have too much or take a lot for granted- but has a soft spot for children and the elderly. She's also quite aware of what she is, a whores daughter and bastard- though gets very agitated if it's mentioned.

Weakness: Sorcery is weakened when she is hungry, thirsty or tired. Similarly, sorcery takes up a lot of energy- causing her to become dehydrated and fatigued. In extreme situations and if she abuses her magic- it can cause seizures and black-outs. 

Weapons: One, dragon bone dagger.

Abilities: Sorcery, which consists off: lifting small objects into the air, creating veils of thick black smoke, temporary increase of speed, hypnotism (which requires her putting magic inside someones body through food, a kiss, a cut e.t.c) and ability to touch and see inside locks to pick them.

Sorry for reposting, but a mod said to post my bio properly this time

Character Name: My character's name is ERK-12a8 (Eric)

Age: There is no physical age since its a robot, but the time he has been operating is about 25 years.

Species: Eric is a military android.

Gender: Programmed to have a male appearance.

Appearance: Eric is a toe-headed; white male who wears a ballistic vest, a disguise and protector for his main circuit board over an army shirt and pants. His ballistic vest is not separate, as it is attached on to his chest making his clothes fabricated specifically for him. he wears black boots used for navigating terrain such as rocks, sand, and swampy areas. He has a rather skinny appearance due to his metallic android foundation behind his skin. He also wears an army helmet with connected ballistic goggles.

History: In 2042, the human race is at the brink of extinction. World War 3 is know as the test of all technology. Armies take advantage of robot armies, nuclear warfare, and even contacting extra-terrestrial beings for support. For the Drone and Robotics Federation of America (DRFA), their focus of ending the war is not for the good of the people, but for the peoples' own survival. They have spent countless hours conducting experiments, engineering technology, and trying hard to end the war and save their own race. Their chances were vague, they were about to call it quits with the entire project, but then they were given hope. Neighboring facilities were aware of the project and wanted to present an idea that will change the war.

Their idea was their current robots weren't as efficient because they lacked human awareness. They couldn't reach an intelligence level humans could. However, the proposed an idea. This idea was called "Project MAM" and required all funding to go to the development of a hyper-intelligent robot. The federation, at their limit of what the could do, accepted the idea. After billions of dollars and over 5 years, the project was complete. ERK-12a8, or "Eric" was created. They originally planned for him to go to war immediately, but rejected that believing he needed time to train. He was put into isolated training for most of his life. Learning human basics, weapon structure, and strategic planning. Various combat simulations were put on him, making him as hit as he could be for battle. After being in training, he was dispatched with an army of both robots and human soldiers called the Desire of Peacekeeping (DPK). He has been in service for 25 years and is still fighting.

Personality: Intelligent and strong, making him smug and cocky at times. But mostly has empathy for his comrades. He does feel guilty about the people he kills and the drone he damages. Except aliens, he has a bloodlust when it comes to missions where he has to kill alien mercs. Yeah, he really hates them.

Weakness: Hacking devices, to much gunfire, extra-terrestrial infantry, his incapability to drive or pilot, gases, plasma, explosions, and extreme voltage

Weapons/Abilities: He can out stand normal gunfire, be resistant to fire, crack a code or device in no time, and heal his teammates and supply them. Since he was put into isolated training for 10 years of his life, he as easily master basic infantry. He has 25 second invisibility and intense agility. 

His weapons are modified Mauser C96s, AK-47, and Galil. He also holds a Plasma Sniper Rifle, a Subsonic Shotgun, and a prototype version of a pistol

Other: He does malfunction at times, but other than that this is pretty much it.

I ready the rules wrong, so I made a journal instead 
ObliviousGenius Apr 12, 2014  Student General Artist
Name: Faruq Sahilovic

Age: If RPing in 2014, he would be 31. 

Species: Human, Bosniak

Gender: Male

Appearance: Faruq has straw-blond hair that is cut longer at the top and shorter on the sides. He parts it at the left and combs it back across his forehead to the right when he is in court or functioning in his position as a translator. Otherwise, so long as it's clean, combed, and not in his eyes, it's acceptable. He has relatively pale skin with a ruddy undertone that comes forward in the cold and light brown eyes. His general facial structure is typical Slavic - deeply set eyes; high, rounded cheekbones; average nose with rounded end; thin lips; thick eyelashes and eyebrows that appear less pronounced due to their lightness in color; square jaw. He usually has deep bags under his eyes. He's 6'4 (193 cm) and has a cyclist's build, weighing around 190 lbs (86 kg). He walks and sits with absurdly good posture, though he tends to slouch when he's reading. His teeth are slightly crooked and he has enough fillings to make a dentist cringe. He has a slight scar in the center of his right palm from a childhood accident. He is right handed. Faruq wears suits for work and casual clothes at home - the usual collection of sweatshirts, shorts, T-shirts, jeans, and sweaters. He tends to dark shades and earth tones. Outside of work he wears the most garish and most retro pair of sneakers he could find on sale. His smile is polite and impersonal. His voice is baritone and carries the remnant of his Bosnian accent and whatever high school in Philadelphia managed to beat into him. 

History: Faruq Sahilovic was born and raised in Sarajevo, Bosnia. When he was 9, the Bosnian War brought genocide to his people, the Bosniaks - ethnically Bosnian Muslims - and siege to his city. The siege lasted until 1996, but the Sahilovics were lucky to eventually escape the city by hiding in cardboard boxes in a moving truck. The panic Faruq felt as he waited, alone in the dark with nothing but the smell of heat, sweat, and cardboard, with nothing but the sound of the truck laboring through gear changes, fueled his claustrophobia until it was an extreme.  At the age of 12, he, his parents (Boris and Maja), and his younger brother (Basil, goes by Bobby now) fled Bosnia and successfully sought political asylum in the United States. 
The family settled in Philedalphia, PA, where Faruq's quick grasp of English made him an invaluable tool to his parents. In his first years in America, Faruq was often pulled out of class to speak to someone on the telephone to translate for his father or mother. With his help, Faruq's parents soon opened a Laundromat that they still run with modest success as of 2014. At first, Faruq was teased at school for his accent and exotic name that did not match his Caucasian features. He resolutely dove into American pop culture and did all he could to repress his accent. By the time he graduated high school, he had assumed his introverted, calm persona. He studied at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC, and soon began work as a translator for the NYC District Circuit Court, where he continues to work to this day. Although he was raised as a practicing Muslim, Faruq no longer observes the faith, despite still believing that there is one true God, Allah, and Muhammad is his Prophet. 
Faruq's sexuality and past relationships are a topic he broaches as rarely as possible. He had always been called a "faggot" in high school for his accent, at first broken English, and general propensity toward reservedness. He was so focused on helping his family establish themselves and their business that it took him until college to really notice that he felt no real inclination toward women. He generally feels that relationships are to be sought after he has achieved his goals; nonetheless, he went through a few boyfriends in his twenties, most of whom gave up on him due to Faruq's tendency to remain introverted and private. His parents would not approve of the lifestyle of a urban gay man, anyway, and his family will always be more important to him than his basic desires.

Personality: Faruq has a quiet and patient temperament. He speaks honestly and precisely with the carefulness of a first generation immigrant child who was the first in his family to speak English. An introvert, he spends most of his time trying to not startle people with his height by reacting calmly, impersonally, and kindly to others. But his motivations and beliefs are absolute, and once someone tries to force him beyond them, Faruq becomes even more distant. He has always been an observer of others. He appears to a stranger reserved and forgettable. His training as a translator has further encouraged him to blend in rather than stand out. He easily trends toward passive aggression and will not start or join a conflict unless coerced. When among friends, Faruq behaves much more freely. He developed a sense of humor built on wordplay and sarcasm that often leads him to make sly comments that turn what his friends say upside down. He laughs more often when in the company of few and spends every moment of alone forever listening to foreign news, podcasts, and reading his latest haul from the library. Overall, he appears as a bore to most and a dreamer to the rest. He maintains a love for late '80s, early 90's rap music. Needless to say, he is extremely private.

Weaknesses: Faruq cannot tolerate burned food, public transportation, or people who talk on their cell phones in the grocery store. His reluctance to explain his reasoning behind certain actions to those close to him often prevents Faruq from maintaining romantic relationships. His perfect contentedness to be alone makes him difficult to approach. He has claustrophobia that is exacerbated by the presence of moving machinery. He will walk or bike rather than take a car or train if possible, and rarely takes the elevator. He will not return to Bosnia, even if it means losing his job. He's a human in decent shape - he succumbs to age, disease, and trauma. 

Weapon: I suppose he could swear in Russian or hit you with his bicycle, if you pressed him. He leaves the fighting up to the thugs and the lawyers.

Abilities: His greatest strengths are his patience, his serenity, and his mastery of English, Bosnian, Red Russian, and Arabic. A lesser strength is his integrity. He can run fairly fast, but cycling is his fastest mode of transportation.
