    REAL NAME/ALIAS: Tax , aka Taxus baccata ambulus ,
    AGE : 400 (or so)
    GENDER: nil
    CATEGORY: Mutant ( i guess - i'm a tree with mutated abilities rather than a person)
    POWERS:
    1) I'm a tree , so my principal power is the ability to walk around and to talk, (or for that matter to stand still and put down roots and thus to be mistaken for a normal tree)

    2) Being a yew tree , I can also exude a cloud or jet of the highly toxic chemical Taxine

    3) My principal branches can grow rapidly, enabling me to seize people or objects

    SKILS: none to speak of , other than those above , i'm also fairly slow over the ground , and big and unweildy.

    APPEARANCE: as I may have mentioned I'm a yew tree , so gnarled bark , dark green waxy needles, and muddy roots which only show when i'm walking.

    WEAPON/S (If any): One of my branches can become a Yew Bow enabling me to fire metre long arrows , however as these are made from my own timber every time I fire it weakens my spirit

    OTHER: I have a pathological hatred of foresters, and by extension of the human race in general who have cut down many of my friends and dared to use them to to build houses , furniture, and other pedestrian purposes . this makes me so angry I have started to drop my needles in rage

    REAL NAME/ALIAS:

    AGE (30 & up):
    63
    GENDER:
    male
    CATEGORY:
    Mystic
    POWERS:
    1) Life drain- He can remove people's life force and absorb it, however it does leave him inactive for the next few hours and requires the following words:
    Non celerius iuvenis stultus and direct touch.
    2) Weapon summoning- He can summon an axe to his hands at anytime but it will only last for one kill and requires Nox mihi viam to work.
    3) Death Mark- He can mark anyone for death and someone within the next hour will have the compulsion to kill the marked one. Requires direct touch to the skin. Can be rendered useless by gunpowder rubbed into the mark. It will look different on each individual.
    SKILLS:
    He can lift an axe and swing pretty well for an old man but that may be due to the life force he drains. Very good at first aid. Also good at make up, flower arranging and just listening.
    APPEARANCE:
    A gaunt grey old man without a recent drain of life force, with it, a dashing young man with blonde bouffant hair, tall and muscular. Often wears a baseball jacket, a polo and jeans either way.

    Cool, lol.

    Also, @Erik-the-Enchanter! , stealing three things to defeat someone? Sounds like some Celtic Mythology I know.

    REAL NAME/ALIAS: Abbadon
    AGE: Thousands of years old
    GENDER: Male in human form, doesn't really have a gender in his original form.
    CATEGORY: Divinity
    POWERS: None, but if he could only get his powers back.
    SKILLS: Being an eons old demon, Abbadon knows more about the world than any man alive. Knows alot of dark rituals, that take quite some time to perform though. Is a genius. Has a cult of followers who follows him questionlessly. Plus he has tons of cash. Never moves around without at least four armed followers (who are Adequete Mook level) and can get a team of up to twenty in if he wants (Stormtrooper level). Has influence in alot of places. Usually "has the guy" for whatever job he needs.
    WEAPONS: AK-47 for the mooks, he carries a handgun.
    APPEARANCE: Tall middle eastern appearance, has black hair and a full beard. His eyes, for those beave enough to look in them, have been described as "bottomless pits, going down and down endlessly." Wears expensive Italian suits. Has a gold ring with a locus imprinted of it. Always carries a briefcase, only he knows what's inside of it. Speaks with a British accent.
    OTHER: Is the original ruler of Tehom, the bottomless pit, later known as hell. When the Devil fell from heaven he waged war against Abbadon, winning in the end, and locking the demon in a mortal body. Tried numorous times to return to his former splendor, failed each time thanks to that lovely goddess Adrianhod. Now he is one of the highest crimelords of Fortress City.

    REAL NAME/ALIAS:
    Autonomous Response Weapons Node, Mk. III (A.R.W.N. or “Arwen”)

    AGE: Classified
    GENDER: Fembot?
    CATEGORY: Other

    POWERS:
    1) Superhuman strength. Arwen’s spec sheet states she is capable of lifting up to five tons, though this has never been proven in a real world scenario. Can punch through brick walls and is strong enough to take what she dishes out.

    2) Ghost in the Machine: There is more than one Arwen, though only one can be active at a time. Her consciousness is stored somewhere in cyberspace and downloaded into an identical new body when she is destroyed. So, break one and another will (eventually) show up to kick your ass. No one knows how many were built before the program was stopped.

    3) Technomancer: Arwen can commandeer networked devices, such as cellphones, computers, etc. She was built for physical combat, not cyber warfare, so she’s not “smart” enough to hack a nuclear missile or something, but can usually break through the firewalls of household electronics without too much difficulty.

    SKILLS:
    Doesn’t need to eat or sleep. (She recharges by plugging into outlets (fast recharge) or through solar energy (trickle charge).) Can hold her breath for a really long time… like, forever. Also good at math.

    APPEARANCE:
    Arwen looks like a human woman, except for a pair of silver, bladelike antennae on the sides of her head, like rabbit ears. They sort of look like wireless headphones, but with a rusty patina. She stands about 5’8”, has long straight blonde hair, pale skin, glowing green eyes, and an athletic build. She is attractive by most people’s standards, but in a cold, bland sort of way, like a clothing store mannequin. Despite her outward appearance, she weighs nearly 400 pounds and hits like a freight train.

    WEAPONS:
    Due to laws about operating armed military drones on American soil, ARWN has failsafes in her programming that prevent her from arming herself. She literally can’t use a gun, knife, sword, grenade, or anything else that would legally be classified as a weapon. To circumvent this, she is programmed to use nonlethal items in very lethal ways.

    OTHER:
    ARWN is (or was) a failed black project started by UltraTech, a now-defunct competitor of SuperTech. They tried to create an android police force to replace the “dangerous epidemic of superheroes running rampant in Fortress City.” The program never got past initial field tests. Flaws in ARWN’s code caused her to make severe errors in judgment. For example, she once rescued a cat from a tree by uprooting the tree, slamming it against a house until the cat fell out, and then giving the (very dead) cat back to its owner. Mission accomplished!

    The project was scrapped and UltraTech later went out of business. The ARWN program was supposed to use a single AI-infused supercomputer, networked to thousands of robot bodies. When the program ended, they shut down and destroyed the computer… but the shipment of ARWN bodies was lost on its way to the scrapper. Every couple of months, one turns up and tries to “save the day,” usually leading to disastrous results and massive property damage. Despite the League’s attempts to rid the city of her, she just keeps popping up.

    "uprooted a tree, how very dare you" Tax stamps his plodules on ARWN until shes a broken set of semiconductors fizzing and sparking gently in the morning rain (not really - but maybe you shouldn't tell him that story) ;)

    BTW, I gotta go to work in the next 20 mins and highly doubt I'll get a post up before then, so don't wait up for me, guys. I'll have Arwen catch up later. :)

    You know, I also noticed it was similar, lmao. But I know next to nothing about Celtic mythology, it's just a coincidence. I had already sorta planned this RP while finishing the other one and the idea of looking for artifacts was just floating in my head.

    Sorry for the delay. I didn't have enough time to post on my lunch break at work and, once I got home, I just drew a blank. Stayed up 'til almost 4AM trying to think of what to post. :(

    @obi-sem kenobi
    She thinks she's good. ARWN believes the League has gone evil. She'll help as long as no one ruins it by blurting out, "we're villains, you dumb robot!" Actually, even then she'd probably find a way to get it all mixed up.

    @Erik-the-Enchanter! Adventure just started and already Abbadon wants to murder Stinger. This should be fun.
    BTW are our old characters from unretired superheroes gonna be showing up? I would love to see them again, and if we could play them (wishful thinking right?)
