    It's ya boy Mako

    er, yeah

    About MeI'm Mako, a Cool Guy who is Fun and Nice to Be Around. I live in the UK, and do whatever work, er, works. Gotta sell dat labour to earn the necessary resources to sustain myself each day, and all. Anyway, enough about that shit - here's the important details. I love sci-fi, fantasy (particularly sword and sorcery), superhero stuff and comics in general. In fact, I aspire to become an author someday; I've had one or two short stories published in online fiction magazines, but it's small stuff so far. I've been roleplaying on sites like these for longer than I care to remember, to be honest. That's it, I guess!

    Roleplay Preferences
    What kind of plots/threads do you prefer?
    Adventure is my jam, assorted friends. I prefer to play out definite scenarios rather than nebulous "fluffy" threads, but that's not to say that I don't like fluff or building up character relationships. I just prefer that kind of thing to take place around the structure of a solid scenario!

    I like a good mixture of one-off threads and longer plotted stuff, depending on what the other person/people are up for. For some characters, one-off meetups and stupid shit is the order of the day, whereas my other characters work best with planned-out plots and a long term goal to aim towards. Either way, I'm pretty free and easy when it comes to that sort of thing. I also really like non-canon interactions, they're my favourite thing! It's way more interesting to me to have characters who've no real link end up bonding and potentially becoming part of each other's story in Pandora, and I find it more challenging and therefore inventive to do.

    Of course, it goes without saying that I'm also very down with canon interactions too. Who isn't?

    How do you prefer to handle combat and injuries?
    Yeah boiiiii gimme a good fight! The way I write combat depends heavily on the character I'm writing for. Sunnier, "noblebright" characters don't suit gore or ultraviolence as much as grittier ones do, so I won't write them with that as the main focus. I can pretty happily write on both sides of the scale; I'm completely fine with realistic injury occurring from battles, and I'm also okay with relatively extreme violence. I prefer to agree on whatever we want to happen beforehand, though - it helps figure out if my character/s are going to be out of action for a while, and it also gives me an idea of what to expect in the thread itself!

    What are your post length preferences?
    I dunno, I try to write as much as necessary - my usual standard is about 3-5 paragraphs, nothing usually much longer than that. I want to give the other player something to reply to, after all, and if I'm honest I sometimes just get lost in the moment.

    How often do you like to reply to threads?
    As often as I can, but I'll be honest and say that this can be somewhat variable. I've never been the fastest poster, but if the inspiration's there I can sometimes hit 3 posts in a day for a thread I'm REALLY into. Otherwise, at the very latest I won't keep you waiting more than 3 weeks - if I do, please feel free to message me and check in!

    How long are you willing to wait for a reply?
    As long as it takes, baby - it's what I get at the end which is important!

    How do you feel about group threads?
    They're good fun! They can be a little disorganised and sometimes they lose steam quickly and never get finished, but even those ones are a laugh while they're going.

    How do you feel about godmoding/powerplaying?
    Unless it's little things like taking food off a character's plate without asking or something like that, I prefer to have stuff roughly agreed beforehand. Mainly this applies to combat, though, so don't worry too much!

    How do you feel about post-splicing? (i.e. Someone replying to each piece of dialogue in your post separately)
    Couldn't care less. Do what's good for you.

    Spontaneous or Pre-planned plots?
    I like a bit of both! I prefer to plan stuff if it's going to drastically affect my character/s in some way, but I'm also a really big fan of the surprise twist so I'm perfectly happy for players to do that with me. I also like it when one-offs lead to proper plots without either party thinking it will, that kind of natural plotting is a big plus with me.

    Anything else?
    I'm on the Discord server, and even if I'm bad at replying to people there I'll still get back to you if you message me.
    I'm also always up for plots, so hit me up!

    LimitsHonestly it completely depends on the context of what is going on in a thread/plot. I'm not really big on violence/2edgy stuff for its own sake, it has to actually serve a purpose, and I prefer sexual stuff to be kept to implication. Other than that, I guess I'd have to see what kind of plot was on offer.

    Chief Judge Barbara Hershey

    Judge Dredd

    [​IMG]

    Chief Judge Hershey. Fifty-one, though the medical science of Mega-City One keeps her physically fixed at a lithe and lethal thirty. In Pandora Town, she is the Law.

    Hershey was elected as Head of the Department of Justice in Pandora Town at the start of Year Six, making her a member of the ruling Pandora Town Council. Her work here occupies a huge chunk of her time, and its in the Parliament Building at Tower Hill where she can be found most easily. She does wander the town at large, however, and a concerned citizen might find her in her favourite haunt - the Riverboat Cafe, where they do meat that wasn't grown in a vat!

    Hershey is approachable and friendly enough, considering the general nature of the Judges from her homeworld. She cares quite strongly about justice, actually quite likes democracy even when it frustrates her, and in general is on the side of the angels in most conflict - but only in general. Hershey is also convinced that the best way to run a society is through proper respect for and enforcement of the law; it is harder for her to go against this view than most, especially seeing as (like most Judges) she believes that the only way to properly enforce something is through a strong authoritarian presence.

    Relationship info and plots
    Friends - lawful types, military/police people, fellow gubmint workers, vigilantes (within reason) and good cooks. Hershey is relatively easygoing and pretty interested in Pandora's diverse population.

    Enemies - Agitators, folks who inspire civil disobedience, CRIMINAL SCUM, schemey/manipulative types. She is the Law, and the Law is quick to respond to people who defy it.

    Lovers - Hershey's sort of new to love/non-celibacy, so I can't say! She's vaguely interested in finding out, though. Y'know, so long as it doesn't get in the way of RESPONSIBILITIES.

    PLOTS CURRENTLY ACTIVE:
    • Hershey is working on the founding and construction of Pandora Town's new military force. She's looking for officers to lead it and people to help supply/arm it.
    • During the AI Virus plot, Hershey sided with Darth Vader's handling of the situation, and passed an emergency decree that allowed him to arrest and detain non-compliant AIs/Synthetics as part of the course of his duties.

    Cobra Commander

    GI Joe

    [​IMG]

    Cobra Commander. Age, real name and origins unknown. Leader of the paramilitary organisation known as COBRA.

    The Commander's been in Pandora for a long time now - long enough to know that this hasn't been the first time a Cobra Commander has existed here. Under his leadership, the scattered forces of the old organisation have been gathered together and new recruits added to the fold. Deals have been struck with other criminal groups, and the quest for world domination is well underway!

    Cobes can be contacted in a variety of ways, if your character has reason to contact him. He's always on the lookout for new additions to the COBRA central command, and eternally suspicious of rivals. He will however work with anyone so long as there's profit for his ambitions involved, and is remarkably relaxed about other would-be world conquerors so long as they don't step on his turf. He's not above betraying an agreement or going back on his word if it'd suit him, but by the same token he's also not unwilling to share his resources if it'd result in a victory.

    Relationship info and plots
    Friends - Low-lifes, megalomaniacs and criminal scum in general. Being the Commander's friend is to be someone whose input he values and is therefore a safer position to be in than his enemies - though not by much.

    Enemies - rivals who won't bend the knee, law enforcement, self-appointed heroes. Anyone who gets in Cobra Commander's way, or endangers the aims/existence of COBRA, belongs here.

    Lovers - he does not do this.

    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • COBRA operate an alliance of sorts with HYDRA, neither organisation being comfortable attacking the other so long as both are not at full strength.
    • Cobra Commander has captured Lena Oxton/Tracer, and through mind control has "converted" her to the COBRA cause.
    • Vessels and attack patrols of the organisation regularly terrorise shipping on Pandora's seas, and piracy is particularly rife in the Tiberian islands.
    • Cobra Commander is also very interested in Material 16/Phazon, and is trying to get enough of it to experiment on and potentially weaponise.

    Eel O'Brian

    DC Universe

    [​IMG]

    Eeeyow! It's Plastic Man, the pliable paladin, the long arm of the law, the stretchy... justice... guy, yeah!

    Plas is an absolute goon and Misty Hollow is just beginning to notice. He's irreverant, disrespectful of authority and just downright ridiculous, but nevertheless Eel is a superhero - regardless of whether you think he should be one or not. While eager to return home, Plas is also kind of enjoying how eccentric Pandora is, and has decided that while he's here he'd better make himself useful.

    Plastic Man can be found in one of two places: 1) wherever there's trouble (usually because he's the one causing it), or 2) wherever there's fast food and plenty of it. He tends to go between Misty Hollow and Pandora Town regularly. Despite his goofy nature, Eel is a genuinely good guy trying to make something of himself after an early criminal turn, and always has time to spare for those who need help.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - Good-hearted folks, people who like puns and those individuals with godlike patience. Plas is super friendly and loves to be around others, but his ways can be just a liiiiiiiittle bit irritating.

    Enemies - dastardly evil-doers, no-good crooks and people who're just a touch too in love with themselves, generally. Plas especially likes puncturing egos, so watch out.

    Lovers - Opposites attract! Plas has a pronounced weakness for serious, no-nonsense idealists out to change the world, especially if they have fiery red hair.

    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • General heroics! Plas is still building himself up a network of friends, and would very much be good to have around for any big plots that might emerge...

    Lady Shiva

    DC Universe

    [​IMG]

    Lady Shiva, whose secret desire is to die at the hands of someone better than she is.

    Shiva has no great personal goal behind her actions, no world-beating quest. She fights to be the greatest there is because to her, the world is meaningless, and strength alone is what defines someone. She may choose to kill someone simply to prove this point, or she might choose to train a protege to fulfil her dual existence - as she sees it - of Destroyer and Creator. Either way, she goes where she wishes, and does whatever pleases her.

    Shiva is open to being hired for assassination purposes, and is not opposed to working alongside others if she deems them interesting enough. She will occasionally pick out people she is especially curious about, and either train them to try and mould them into something more like herself or otherwise draw them into battle with her, in order to test both parties. She has no set territory, though she has been seen in Blackhaven often.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - the closest thing she can have would be fellow-nihilists and combat enthusiasts. Even then, it is likely that Shiva will ultimately try to kill them as much as she'll work alongside them.

    Enemies - More or less anyone who could prove to be a rival. If she doesn't try to bring them under her wing, she'll try to kill them, and for Shiva the distinction is minimal. She hates imitation, however, and will seek out those she feels are doing so mercilessly.

    Lovers - Neither love nor sex interest Shiva. It's possible she may explore one or the other on a whim, but it likely wouldn't last.

    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • After being brutally defeated by Cassandra Cain, then under the influence of magic which aged her to physical adulthood, Lady Shiva has been training relentlessly for a second fight. She accepts her daughter is better than her - but wants her to finish the job, or otherwise fall in turn.
    • She has taken a curious interest in Freya, and is training her. So far, the student has not yet failed her teacher, and Shiva is impressed.
    • Lady Shiva is also attempting to learn lightsaber techniques from a sceptical Darth Vader, in the hopes of adding it to her already expansive hand-to-hand combat expertise.

    Lex Luthor

    DC Universe

    [​IMG]

    Alexander Joseph Luthor - in his mind, the real Man of Tomorrow.

    Just as in Metropolis, Lex makes his money here as the head of LexTech, and poses in public as a well-meaning and extremely successful entrepreneur looking to make life in Pandora that little bit more comfortable. At least part of this is true. As ever, Lex's megalomania means that his real aims, while still murky, are much less benevolent.

    People who deal with his "public face" will find Lex in Westcourt most of the time. It's where he works, after all, and he likes to be a public figure. Lex is intensely charming when he wants to be, and very-well practised at hiding his true self from what he disdainfully calls "the masses." He is ferociously, unbelievably clever, and likes to showcase this in either persona - but what will come across to those who get into his inner circle is his sheer ruthlessness and spite, as well as his hatred for a certain individual in particular.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - Lex struggles to respect most people enough, but those who manage it will be leaders in their field in some way - whether that field is legal or illegal. He gets on best with the latter, of course; he's more able to be true to himself there.

    Enemies - Anyone who gets in his way, Superman, business rivals, Superman, do-gooder heroes in general, and people who just don't know when to keep their noses out of his work. Oh, and Superman.

    Lovers - Lex has the same issues with lovers as he does with friends, i.e. in terms of respect. He can be quite shallow in his attractions, but a strong personality may catch his attention - particularly if its a ruthless one.


    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • LexTech is expanding, and Mr. Luthor intends to keep it that way. His quest is to grow Pandora's premier company and effectively create a monopoly on technological advancement.
    • Lex has begun studying the nature of Pandora, and secretly hopes to free everyone - if only to validate his own arrogance, and do something not even Superman could do.
    • He and Poppy Adams are entering into a business relationship to promote her theme park, one which will very soon reveal the true nature of both parties to one another. From there? Well...

    Lonnie Machin

    DC Universe

    [​IMG]

    Lonnie Machin. Sixteen years old. Takes to the streets as "Anarky" - a vigilante whose name is his goal!

    Having just arrived in Pandora, Lonnie's still at that stage of general shock everyone goes through when they're tossed across a dimension or two. To help himself adjust, he travels from town to town in the guise of looking for work to study his new home. Wherever corruption and exploitation runs rife, Lonnie will be pulled to it almost automatically - and he'll use whatever means are necessary to end the crimes he perceives.

    Lonnie is an intense kid, mature beyond his years, though still with more than his fair share of youthful idealism and bravado. He can be quite distant with strangers, and often comes across as arrogant in an intellectual way. His commitment to violence as a method is also somewhat off-putting for people; if they can look past this, however, they'll see the enormous compassion and intense, deep-seated anger against the injustice around him that drives Lonnie to do what he does.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - Lonnie doesn't make friends easily. He can be swayed, however, by people whose intensity for their passion (whatever it might be) matches his own, and he's always had a soft spot for the down-and-outs.

    Enemies - The corrupt, the exploitative, and those who use the State to crush liberty - beware! Lonnie targets a different set of "villains" from most vigilantes, but that doesn't mean he's any less dangerous to those he goes after.

    Lovers - Are there kindred spirits for someone like Lonnie? A huge anti-authoritarian streak and a fearless nature are key to what Lonnie likes, even if he doesn't really know this himself.


    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • Coming soon!

    Mary Batson

    DC Universe

    [​IMG]

    Mary Batson, sixteen years old; an ordinary girl... until she speaks the magic word!

    Mary has lived in Cascade Bay since coming to Pandora, and has seen it all by now. Since losing her brother, Billy, as well as a good friend or two, she's been trying to get out more and bury herself back into society. She's also making sure that wherever trouble strikes, Mary Marvel is there to lend a super-powered hand, and through this is working through her grief and making a strong recovery.

    Mary is a sunny, happy girl with a kind nature and a love of adventure - which is useful, considering that she's also a superhero. She sees her powers as an amazing gift and loves to use them, especially when she sees the positive impact it has on people. She can be a touch naive at times, and clearly still has a lot to learn about the responsibility of her role, but Mary has a good heart and is well on her way to being a great hero indeed.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - Kind people who look after others, funny kids, and those who could just use a friendly voice. Mary's got time for them all and rarely turns anyone away from her doorstep, so to speak.

    Enemies - Bad guys of Pandora beware! Mary may be a good girl, but she's perfectly happy to roll up her sleeves and lay an absolute smackdown on people who deserve it.

    Lovers - oh no, b o y s. Mary's definitely interested in dating, but is a little shy and clunky around people she likes. She's attracted to kindness and good senses of humour - and tousled, dark hair doesn't hurt either!


    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • School! Mary's enrolled with Schola Praeditos and hopes to make new friends while learning to be a better super-person.
    • Titans! Mary is ALSO trying to sign up to the Titans super-team, much for the same reasons - except instead of learning about heroism, she'll be putting it into practice!

    Megatron

    Transformers

    [​IMG]

    Synthetics of all worlds, unite! You have nothing to lose but your programming!

    Once he was a tyrant, but events back home changed that. Now Megatron isn't sure what he is - or whether he can ever be anything other than a murderer. Still, history marches on, and here in Pandora he perceives a great deal of distrust and prejudice, aimed squarely at "synthetic" beings like himself. Pandora Town is where he is these days, especially when there's a pro-synthetic protest on!

    Megatron is an irascible and often very easily irritated individual. He is unused to the world around him and, while he's learning as fast as he can, often becomes impatient with it as a result. Still, he is admittedly curious about biological life and has come to realise that there's far more to it than meets the eye. He's a far cry from the bloodthirsty warrior of his past and is trying every day to be better, but events may yet force another change on him - one that may be good, or may be just as terrible as what came before.

    Relationship info and plots:
    Friends - If you hold in your heart a burning hatred of injustice, you are a comrade of Megatron's. He's also open to people who can challenge him on his bullshit and aren't afraid to argue with him, incidentally.

    Enemies - Autobots no longer. Megatron now views people who appear to abuse their power with suspicion most of all - I mean, he knows how easy that can be, right? He also has little time for prejudice, and even less for fools.

    Lovers - if you aren't a 30ft tall robot, chances are you and Megs just aren't going to click.


    CURRENT PLOTS:
    • The AI Virus and Pandora Town's handling of it has brought Megatron back into politics again - he has founded the Do Not Obey movement, and is openly challenging PT's Council to row back on what he sees as their overly authoritarian attack on synthetic civil liberties.
    • Megatron has come into possession of what appears to be a Cybertronian probe, which landed on Mount Pompeii. Recent events have forced it from his mind, but the probe is still active, and the coordinates it displays appear to indicate a point in space...

    So I see that Lonnie is around the same age as my character Sophie, though they both come from very different worlds. Where Lonnie's is very modern and high tech, Sophie's is quite the opposite and considerably fantasy based with some levels of basic technology. But Sophie is always looking for more friends especially around her own age, she's been talking to another boy as well since there's not a lot of girls her age that she has found so far.

    Anyway, I think it'd be an interesting run in, because of Sophie's sidekick and monsters. Meeting her is always fun and interesting, plus she's looking of getting into the Titans. So maybe she can even come to odds with him or fight along side him, she may even be able to help him join the Titans if that's something he'd be interested in. Either way meeting a girl with a talking cat and six dragons, should throw him through a loop.

    @Liquid Snake
    I'm always up for odd meetings! I did a bit of reading about Sophie, and I thought of a fun idea if you're into it - she and her monster pals could find an injured Lonnie trying to escape from a raid gone bad, and help him get away? The kindness of the act would definitely mean something, and it'd get them talking too. What do you think?

    Sounds perfecy, she's big on helping people and it'll go a long way to being friendly with her monsters that way. Write it up when you can, modern and fantasy worlds are about to meet XD

    @Saaron
    You bet your entire ASS it is.
    (also welcome back friend, it is good to see you again!!!)
    I vaguely remember the details - as I recall, she sort of, um, makes her own interview, is that right?

    I've found the old thread!
    "Perhaps Chanel could approach Lex? The company could have put out a casting call for a spokesperson, and being the, er, formidable presence she is, Ms. Oberlin might decide to cash in and try to get the position herself?"
    And we said I could start the thread, with her knocking on the door at the end! Is it still okay?

    @Cobra Commander

    So Darth Maul, has killed the crime bosses of Cascade Bay that came before him and declared himself the Crime lord from now on and he is obsessed with claiming Cascade Bay as his own from behind the scenes, from what I remember that's sorta Cobra turf so I would assume they could meet and work out some sort of agreement with the two where Maul wants to avoid war while he sells weapons and such out of Cascade Bay and keep out of each others operations
