You can play as many characters as you want, but don't mix them up

1) If you claim a character from the show and/or the comics, post their name(s). Some characters have identification "names", but no real names. Post the identification name then, but don't use it in the rp.

2) If you want to play an original character, give a short description with the help of these points. If you claim a character that is canon (or canon-in-training) but undeveloped, you may use this too, but don't get preposterous then.

- Race

- Gender (and maybe orientation)

- Name (if any)

- History and heritage

- Abilities (no sueish stuff, please)

- Weaknesses

- Appearance

3) You can claim love interests for your character, if you do so, post them here too.

My claims:

"Brooksbro" (canon character)

- Race: Gargoyle

- Gender/orientation: male, gay

- Name: none, sometimes called "Swift One" which isn't an actual name but refers to his reflexes.

- History and heritage: hatched in the Wyvern Clan 938. Brooklyn's biological older brother.

- Abilities: good reflexes, witty and musical. Fights without any weapons.

- Weaknesses: red wine, superstitious, extremely scared of any supernatural stuff, naive.

- Appearance: ochre skin and blonde hair and a goatee, beak, wings like that of Goliath (but with some additional outgrowths in the membrane), horns are splitted in the middle which looks almost like short roe deer antlers. Wears a dark blue somewhat tattered tunic with a single shoulder strap.

- Love interest: not yet met. Not interested in anyone from Wyvern.

"Second" (canon character)

- Race: Gargoyle

- Gender/orientation: male, straight

- Name: none

- History and heritage: hatched in the Wyvern Clan 918

- Abilities: physically strong, Storyteller, very bold. Fights without any weapons.

- Weaknesses: very bullheaded, easily annoyed.

- Appearance: almost as big and strong as Goliath, wings like these of Brooklyn but with only one claw, humanoid face, hairless, dust-colored skin, large separated horns on the back of his head. Wears a metal breastplate and gauntlets on his forearms in addition to his loincloth.

- Love interest: his mate, "Sacrifice".

-- may add more over time --

Race- Gargoyle

Gender- Female

Name-Humans call her Midnight, for her wings blend into the night sky perfectly

Heritage- Hatched a few years before the Trio.

Abilities- Able to glide, gargoyle strength, Able to use a whip.

Weakness- Stone during the day,

Appearance- She is a few inches shorter the Demona, with gray colored skin, the out side of her wings are black while the inside are midnight blue. She has Pointed ears, each have three small earrings in them, a slightly rigged brow, and small beak like mouth. Her hair was sort of like Demona's but a midnight blue with 1 inch white tips that reached her mid back, and not as puffy with a face frame. Her eyes where a black color.

She wears a white top that went just past her rib cage, the small straps hanging off her shoulders. A light gray skirt went from her hips to the middle of her thigh before it slanted left, ending just below her knee. The skirt being held by a gold rope tied around her waist, and A black whip strapped to her waist as well.

Like any gargoyle, she stood on her toes, had four fingers, a tail, and very fit.

(No Love Interest yet)

Thanks for adding such a nice character! Hatched a few years before the Trio would mean she hatched 938 since this is the next available hatching year before them..... that also means she'd be a rookery sister of Brooksbro.

Is that final now?

Goliath's little sister means she hatched 958. Gargs always hatch every 20 years with a 8: 898, 918, 938, 958 (Trio), 978 (Bronx)...

2/19/2013 #7

yes it is final sorry about that

Revis

Race- Gargoyle

Gender- Female

Name- Revis (Italian)

History and Heritage- She was hatched in Italy a few years after Goliath hatched; the Italian Clan is different when it comes to petty things like names, because almost all of them look so similar, they HAVE to have names. She flew with two of her Rookery Brothers to Castle Wyvern, their Leader had told them to go there and get some sort of supply from the Wyvern Clan that their own was running out of. She, and her Rookery Brothers, were frozen in stone along with the remaining Wyvern Clan when they decided to do the right thing and help them out.

Abilities- Everything that a Gargoyle has.

Weaknesses- The sun

Appearance- Creamy green skin, black webbed wings like Lexington's, long black hair that she keeps in a pony tail. She dresses up in something similar to a Gothic look, black corset with a dark green skirt like Demona's, and a choker necklace with some sort of black jewel.

Love interest- Possibly Goliath.

So, what do you think?

2/20/2013 #10
waffleirony

Sorry, but did you read the rules?

What does "Revis" even mean? Sorry, I don't speak Italian.

Being hatched "a few years after Goliath" also makes no sense. Gargoyles can't hatch whenever they want, see my post above...

I made up the name, and the rules said that as long as there was a good reason he or she had a name then it was ok, unless I read it wrong.
2/20/2013 #12
waffleirony

It's not a Gargoyle name unless it's an actual word in Italian which means something (that's why I asked). Please reconsider that.

2/20/2013 #13
darkangel8950
Okay, I guess give me a minute to find a different Italian name
2/20/2013 #14
waffleirony

I don't want to sound rude, but you should work a bit on the whole thing. So far it doesn't seem very near to canon and has big "human with wings" potential, and I hate "humans with wings" which are so common in the fandom and annoying as ****.

2/20/2013 . Edited 2/20/2013 #15
darkangel8950
How does she have a 'humans with wings' thing?
2/20/2013 #16
waffleirony

Her whole appearance seems like this. Her outfit, her name, her vibe... and obviously also the random breeding cycles you added here which humans have, but Gargs not in the slightest.

I'm also not sure if it would be a good idea to have her turned to stone with the Wyvern survivors since we are not going to depict the time after those 1000 years, would mean pretty much a complete blackout for her in 994.

2/20/2013 #17
darkangel8950
What would you suggest?
2/20/2013 #18
waffleirony

An italian Garg ist okay, that is interesting. Especially when she's a descendant of the original Roman Clan. Should stay like this.

Just make her appear like a true, pure Gargoyle and give her an outfit that fits to a Garg from medieval Italia. And don't "make up" names. She could be named after an obvious feature she has, or after a person or place her clan connects her to. Maybe even after a ruler or god from ancient Rome.

About her story, you must know that for yourself. You can of course have her turned to stone, she could also die in the massacre which wouldn't make a big difference since she'll be gone then for the rest of the RP either way. But since we didn't even reach the time of the massacre, you don't need to make a clear statement about that now.

And typical Gargoyle strenghts and weaknesses are not really strengths and weaknesses. This is like you write for a human "can walk and talk" and "needs to sleep from time to time". lol

2/20/2013 #20
darkangel8950
Ok, I'll see what I can do about it
2/20/2013 #21
waffleirony

take you time and remember also the breeding cycle thing, Gargs hatch only every 20 years (see above).

I'm sorry if I seem strict, but as I said, I want this to be as canon as possible. There are enough far-fetched, absurd stories about "humans that look like Gargoyles" already.

2/20/2013 #22
darkangel8950
Its ok
2/20/2013 #23
waffleirony

You need to know that I don't react like this to bother people for fun, but because Gargs and their ways mean so much to me. Thanks for understanding.
