Origins of Heroes Role Play
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:05:57 PM »

I feel like it took me forever to start this RP, as I couldn't put together the proper colourful prose to weave into the plot description. But then I thought, hey, it's not like Superheroes had a plot.... at all. So here we are!

The year is 1541, and our characters all have a big secret that we're trying to keep hidden, for fear of being ostracized, attacked, or even killed: we all have superpowers. Strange and wonderful abilities that are the direct result of our heritage, as we are all descended from gods.

And that's really about it. As I mentioned in the RP discussions thread, this story will take place in the same universe as Superheroes, although you don't have to have been in that RP to join this one. As well we'll mainly be focusing on Greek mythology for this one, although I'm sure we'll be running in to a few Romans as time goes on. If people are still interested I'll post a card, and answer any questions 'cause I know this was brief and I just want to get this show on the road!

They don’t have to be related to your godly parent. Right?

Name: Mateline Thomine Verace
Age: 21
Godly Heritage: Hades
Powers: can see peoples innermost fears and exploit them, when she gets emotional she can conjure blue flames, speaks to ghosts
Appearance: straight black hair that’s about shoulder length, icy blue eyes, a very fair complexion, she sticks to darker coloured clothing that she tailors herself to fit her petite body, as she only stands at about 5”2’. Her lips are naturally a deep pink shade and her face is round and cherubic.
Personality: Mostly unbothered, but she can come off a bit mean and harsh, not that she’s trying. She’s a bit of a loner due to her powers, but she desperately wants some kind of belonging. She can be hard to get along with, but is fiercely loyal.
Backstory/ Other: Her mother died when she was young and was brought up by her Aunt and Uncle. She always had attitude issues, but when we started seeing the ghost of her mother, the issues started growing to a whole new level. When she was old enough, she left home to work as a seamstress and keep to herself, not bothering to contact her family after that, not wanting to put them in danger for knowing about her powers. She doesn’t know where her powers come from, only that they exist.
