So heres my 2nd attempt at a RP, hope you like the sound of it...
In the modern day world many authors take hold of peoples imaginations through stories and epic adventures involving many things considered to be abnormal or supernatural. People firmly believe these things are just imaginary. So when people start to disappear in the early days of 2008 people turn to the police and authorities with complaints of loved ones missing. Only when the corpses are found do people start to fear something other than human beings are involved.
It was then that people started to see first hand the horrors of what had been awakened. The masses of people called them simply demons after images from their nightmares. These demons were found in every country all over the world and due to their ability to take on the form of any human whose DNA they consume the world fell into turmoil. Infighting began, as people didn’t know who were demons or whether they were still their family and friends.
The world lived in constant fear and the demons filled their horrid bellies to the brim. In the year 2017 the world was given hope as a formally unknown organisation came to the surface giving instructions to the world. If a town, village or city believed a demon was hiding in their walls they should sent word to a company called ‘Claymore’.
The group gave hope to the people and many forms of contact reached them asking for help. The help came...
Warriors wielding only primitive weapons such as axes, bows and swords arrived in the troubled cities and towns. These warriors differed in many ways however it was commented how they all had shining silver eyes. The warriors who became known as Claymores themselves (due to the companies symbol of a giant sword) easily found and beat the demons down while also giving them a universal name, the Yoma.
These people did the bidding of the people and the demons were suppressed however there were always more to be found all over the world.
Then somehow people found out the truth about the Claymores, they were actually half Yoma themselves granting them power over normal humans and other Yoma. People began to distrust the Claymores and they were shunned, only to be called upon to depose of Yoma.
The organisation itself had been around since medieval times but had believed to have stopped the Yoma hundreds of years before. When the Yoma surfaced again in 2008 it began finding human children fit to be turned into Claymores. By 2017 the Claymores had found their 200 warriors and gave each one a number and symbol With 1 being the most powerful Claymore and 200 the lowest. Fighting between Claymores happens often as higher places are highly wanted. However just killing a higher ranked Claymore doesn’t mean they deserved a higher rank.
Claymores themselves use the Yoma half of them to fight in battle and draw on its power. However if too much power is used they will start to turn into a full fledged Yoma and will have to be killed by the organisation. These beings are called Awakened Ones. These have the powers of Yoma’s however they keep their high intelligence and have been known to gather Yoma for mass battles. The lowly Yoma’s are ranked from 1 to 10 in strength and only Claymores from 30 up may be sent to fight a rank 1 Yoma.
Our story of the battle for the world begins in late 2019, two years after the emergence of the Claymores. The world is used to Claymores and only calls them to battle Yoma. However a former number 1 from the Claymores turned into an Awakened One and has started to gather an army of Yoma, however he remains hidden.
The organisation works by sending out 40 people from the headquarters hidden deep within the Sahara desert. These 40 people are known as Suits, they are the ones who give the orders to the Claymores. They are all childlike and small and seem to be immortal. They must also be extremely fast as they seem to be able to reach Claymores anywhere in the world only a few days after requests reach HQ.
Sample Character Sheet
Name: (organisation doesn’t give second names however some people still choose to have one)
Age: between 15 and 34
Claymore or Awakened One:
Number: (if a Claymore)
Weapons: (any choice you want, although it says that Claymores wield old fashioned weapons, the Claymores of today decide to use whatever they want.
Yoma power: (if a Claymore) (Claymores use Yoma power in battle but if they go over a limit they start to turn into a Yoma, what is your limit?) 1% - 99%
Both of these are the characters I will use.
Name: Talwin (organisation doesn’t give second names)
Claymore or Awakened One: Claymore
Weapons: carries only his claymore, his massive sword on his back
Abilities: When he uses his Yoma power he gains unmatched speed in all limbs which gives him his high rank.
Appearance: Talwin is small for someone his age so much so that his claymore drags along the ground. He has pale blue hair due to the bonding with the Yoma and of course the silver eyes. He has a scar from his right shoulder down to his lower left stomach from where the Yoma was placed. He is quite muscular but not outwardly so. He wears normal clothes most of the time but when call on to battle Yoma he wears a skintight flexible suit over which he has an armoured jacket and cargo shorts. He also wears fingerless black gloves and sturdy black boots.
Personality: Talwin is shy around other people due to the fact that most of the human race fears him. However in battle he becomes like a wild beast and uses his massive claymore to cut down the Yoma. He has a high sense of duty and honour for one so young and loves to read fiction causing him to change his fighting style to try something he may have read the hero did in the book. He will normally be seen holding a book or sword and many don’t know what to make of him.
Yoma power: he can call upon enough Yoma power to alter the features of his face into a lion like beast but anything past that causes him to start to lose his humanity (around 60%)
History/Bio: Talwin was born in England in 2007 however he was orphaned and placed in a home. The home was one of the first to be attacked by a Yoma and the entire house was destroyed leaving Talwin the only survivor as the Yoma didn’t believe he was worth the time. It was then that the organisation started stealing children to convert into Claymores. He was exceptionally young and came close to awakening many times in his childish fits. After many years training Talwin hit his teens and was already showing much promise. When the Claymores became public Talwin was ranked at 87 and quickly rose through the ranks however he stopped at 22 as the few above him are exceptionally powerful. He has fought only one Awakened One before however he has slayed many Yomas.
Claymore or Awakened One: Awakened One
Number: former number 1
Weapons: his claws and the deformed pole axe he keeps from his Claymore days
Abilities: ??? not much is known about this exceptionally powerful Awakened One and any Claymores who come across him have the orders to flee on sight.
Appearance: In human form he can look like anyone he wishes but in Awakened form he has the form of sickly thin and gangly human with blue skin, he is also twice the size of any normal human or Claymore. When in Awakened form he looks like what a human would call a clown albeit with a flat face like a mask. He has a ruffle around his neck and pointed long feet and hands/claws. Many consider him the true face of terror.
Personality: very calm but ruthless, he kills all Claymores on sight and his only wish is to bring down the organisation
Yoma power: he is a full Yoma, although he has already surpassed that of a normal Awakened One.
History/Bio: Oidar was formally the number 1 Claymore in a time long past however he betrayed them when he broke many rules and started to shout blasphemous lies. The Claymores managed to force him into hiding and he has lived peacefully ever since in human form, however he kills when angered causing him to have to move around the world more than that of a usual Yoma.
So there you go, I've left the character sheet open to allow you to create a unique character with any weapon, abilities, personality and history you choose to make them have.
