SHADE'S CHILDREN

A: Title- Shade's Children

B: History of RP story- Shade's Children takes place in a future where evil Overlords (http://www.animeforum.com/l%20List_of_Overlords) have ruled for fifteen years due to a catastrophic "Change" which caused all people over the age of fourteen to simply disappear. Since then, the children have been rounded up and placed in prison-like dorms. No child may live past their fourteenth birthday (known as a "Sad Birthday"), when they taken to the Meat Factory and his or her muscles (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Muscle), brain (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Brain), and other organs (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Organ_%28anatomy%29) are harvested to create cyborg (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Cyborg) creatures (http://www.animeforum.com/l%20List_of_creatures).

These creatures are servants of the Overlords, and as such both fight in the Overlords' ceremonial territorial battles and hunt for the rare escapees who have managed to remove the tracer implanted in their wrist. There is only one exception to this rule: some young women are kept for "breeding" to maintain the supply of children, until a suggested maximum age of eighteen.

Escape is rare, based both on courage and ability. These teens are gifted, however, with "Change Talents" - side effects of the "Change" that are unique to each individual and generally fall into the category of psychic powers (psychokinesis (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Psychokinesis), telepathy (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Telepathy), precognition (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Precognition), etc.) These talents are also dependent on Change Radiation, a mysterious field distributed by Change Projectors. This radiation allows the Overlords to control the weather and warp certain physical laws, which is critical for some creatures such as the Wingers (http://www.animeforum.com/l%20List_of_creatures), which would otherwise be too heavy to fly. The strength of the field is greatly weakened by water.

These escapees have one chance to survive. Several teams of escapees recruited by Shade live in a beached submarine (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Submarine), near a sewer (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Sewer) pipe that allows access to an extensive sewer system. Shade is the only "adult" to have survived the Change. This, however, is mitigated by the fact that he is merely the uploaded consciousness (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Mind_transfer) of a real human scientist - a Dr. Robert Ingman. Shade knows that he is an uploaded consciousness and thus continually questions his humanity (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Humanity).

15 years ago, every human being over the age of 14 vanished. Everyone on the face of the Earth. A bus, came by to all the towns, gathering all of the remaining Children, those under 14. They are taken to a Dorm, where they are raised, and put on Steroids, for the Overlords Creatures. The day they reach 14, the child is killed, and made into one of their beings. These creatures include,

Drones
Drones are the Overlord's workers: although they do not have enhanced senses or any defense, these workers who maintain and run the Meat Factory are super-strong. They are only found in Overlord installations, where there are invariably others nearby to defend them.
Ferrets
Ferrets are similar to their real-life counterparts (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Ferret) in appearance, but are notedly larger, more intelligent, and have hollow fangs with which to partially exsanguinate their victims. They are nocturnal, and seem to act merely as hunters of escapees rather than also fighting for the Overlords. They are mentioned to have great strength. Ferrets also have an affinity for underground locales and dislike heights, including tall buildings. They operate in "fangs" of five, and make hissing noises to communicate.
Myrmidons
Myrmidons, unlike some of the other creatures, are humanoid: Larger than most, (the teens of which they are made are given steroids (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Steroids)) these creatures are always seen wearing full armour and carrying a mle weapon (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/M%C3%AAl%C3%A9e_weapon) or a net gun, used to capture escapees. They have barrel chests, long arms, spade-shaped hands, and six fingers. They use fist-sized glowing globes called witchlights for light, and are mentioned as using battle sprayers that spray acid. They are the shock troops of the Overlords and the primary fighting units. They appear in "maniples (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Maniple_%28military_unit%29)" of seven.
Myrmidon Masters
A Myrmidon Master is a larger, more intelligent Myrmidon which commands other Myrmidons. In the field, they are second in command only to a visiting Overlord. Myrmidon Masters are not generally seen in groups with other Myrmidon Masters, but rather among groups of the lesser Myrmidons.
Screamers
their scream is so loud as to be able to deafen and daze people far away from it. They are also the primary method of alarm for sleeping Myrmidons - only a Screamer can wake a Myrmidon quickly. They do not travel in groups.
Trackers
Trackers are the scouts of Overlord forces - their noses, ears, and eyes are larger than normal and further enhanced with Overlord cyborg technology. They travel in "trios" of three, using whistling noises to indicate their status. They wear leather armor and do not fight unless attacked.

Wingers
Wingers are flying creatures resembling humanoid bats. They have no nose, and their lower jaw is extended for enhanced killing ability. As with the other creatures, a mind control unit is kept near its brain, which forbids human thoughts and speech (although speech becomes difficult anyway due to the repositioning of the mouth). Wingers use Change energy anti-gravity boosters to help them fly, since they are theoretically too heavy to fly. There are also special, vehicle-sized Wingers used as the personal flying mounts of Overlords. Normal Wingers appear in "flights" of nine.

These creatures are set out to gather the escapes of the Drom and return them to the meat Factory. Where they are made into one of the them.

The Overlords
The Overlords are evil (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Evil) humanoid beings from another dimension. They appear human but are subtly different. They view all life other than themselves as utterly worthless, referring repeatedly to humans as animals. As such, they have no problems harvesting children and using them to construct their creatures for no purpose other than sadistic enjoyment of gladiatorial violence between the creatures.

They do not normally use speech to communicate, though they are capable of it. Instead, they subvocalize (http://www.animeforum.com/wiki/Subvocalization), using their technology to carry their speech among them. When they subvocalize, their throat muscles twitch noticeably.
There are three female and four male Overlords.
The Overlords disdain combat and never enter hand-to-hand combat themselves, but have a variety of technologically advanced weapons.
Black Banner
The first Overlord featured. He wears black, spiked armour with a horned helmet.
Red Diamond
A highly aggressive male Overlord who wears a red armour and and a fire-like cloak. He is greasy, fat, and balding.
Blue Star
Very little is mentioned about Blue Star. Blue Star may be the third female Overlord.
Gold Claw
Apparently the oldest of the Overlords, Gold Claw, a female Overlord, is also quite arrogant.
Silver Sun
An attractive female who wears mirrored armour, Silver Sun is very intelligent and sadistic. Her teeth are filed to points.
Gray Crescent
An old male, Grey Crescent was asleep when Ninde and Gold-Eye were brought to see the Overlords.
Emerald Crown
Emerald Crown dresses in flexible green metal armour and a crown of emerald spikes, and is presumably male.

This greatly tires Ella

When Ella was in the Dorms, at the age of 16, (she was kept alive for breeding) she conjured a razor blade, and cut the tracer out of her wrist. After this had happened, her and a few others attempted escape from the Dorms, but, she was the only successful one.

All of the Sample characters are up for grabs if anyone wants them, the only thing is, I will control Shade, unless I know for a fact that the person who wants him is a great.... all around everything.

EDIT: ERRORZ have been edited.

I found a character.. and I'm glad to say he'll work for me.

Name: Alex

Age: 17

Appearance: On the attachment, but he has tan baggy pants instead of shorts.

Change Talent: By taking ions, protons and neutrons from the atoms in the air around him he can create and manipulate lighting to an extent, usually for a bolt of lighting. But the fact remains, the more lighting he makes the more electrolytes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolytes) he loses in his body, meaning he can suffer from malnutrition. This also will dehydrate him, seeing as though the water in his body is also used to create the static that is needed to start forming the lightning.

Gender: Male

With Shade or not: With Shade

Brief history of Character:
Alex, though not a common name any more, was the name he found on a small cracked cover to a videogame. He wasn't able to read back then but a kid who could, read it to him. "Alex, the one Destined to be the next Dragon Master..." That was all that was left of that busted game cover and so he took on that name. He escaped the dorm obviously by sneaking his way the best who could to the last wall, where he conjured his lightning the most he had ever done in his life. This burst fried the tracker in his wrist inside out. He escaped half dead somehow managing to reach the nearby wooded area.

Alex was found by some of Shade's children, and brought to him on the submarine. Eversince then he has acted like a big brother to the youngers kids and has helped Shade for better or for worse. He eats a lot, because of everything his power drains him of and is usually seen with a flask of water. He needs water to supplement what water he burns until he eats again.

Eh, its okay.


BUT, You need to add some kind of side effect to your change talent. Like, exhaustion, the powers are meant to be used only when need be. Not whenever you want too. Its keeps it from this RPG from being so easy.
