An RP about remotely controlled fighting robots.

Story: show
Ore, the birthplace of humanity. It is similar to Earth in many ways, and yet distinct; the Earth of a reality that never came to be. The year is 9,107. Don’t let the number fool you, though. The level of technology present in Ore is comparable to our modern day inventions, with two major differences. Namely, the progression of robotics and neural interfacing. Funded through dubious means by an unknown party, an independent group of researchers and engineers, known as Incandescent Laboratories, have been working for years on creating a functional humanoid machine. However, rather than automatons, the intent is to create remotely controlled drones that could be piloted by people.

Once completed, these drones would be able to take the place of humans in combat situations or on dangerous jobs. They could operate in conditions otherwise inhospitable to people, safely function within quarantine, act as law enforcement, or better yet, participate in robot fight clubs. The possibilities are endless. However, the technology is still too new to be widespread. The years of research have only recently begun to bear fruit, and the first batch of drones have just undergone preliminary testing. Seeing as they are intended as stand-ins for people, it was decided that these machines would be called “stands”. This decision was later revisited, and the name was changed to “proxies”.

Now, development has hit a snag. Since the members of the research group are either too busy or too awful to become adept at operating the proxies, further testing and experimentation has ground to a halt. For development to continue, dedicated pilots would be required. It was time to consider their options for recruitment.

TL;DR Remotely controlled fighting robots.

Application: show
You’ve just seen an s**** for a job offer at Incandescent Laboratories. True, it was the strangest, most sloppily put together ad you’ve seen in your life, but even so, your interest is piqued. On the off chance that this offer is legitimate, you could potentially become a test pilot for remotely controlled combat drones. For whatever reason, you decide it’s worth it to take this chance. Now, you need only sign up.

Proxy details are not relevant at this stage. They will start out generic and crappy, and become stronger and more customizable as time goes on.

The RP will begin once four people have signed up, and sign-ups will remain open. There is a limit of one character per person until the end of the prologue, at which point a second may be allowed on a case-by-case basis. A maximum of 8 players and/or 10 characters will be allowed, not counting me.

Accepted Characters:

semicolon - jean: show
Username: Semicolon
Character Name: Jean-François De Champlain, or Jean for short.
Sex: Male
Age: 38

Appearance: Jean is 5’11, with a decently muscular build. His dark brown buzzcut is already fading to gray, his nose is short and triangular and sits in front of sky-blue eyes, and he appears to have mastered the art of perpetual five o'clock shadow.

Frequently consisting of aloe or charcoal colored oil-stained cargo jackets over white tanktops, Jean’s outfits are few and seldom varied. Beige or black cargo pants are held in place by a dark burgundy leather belt, and polished brown leather steel-toed boots complete the ensemble.

Personality: Jean wouldn’t describe himself as disgruntled, but he’d be wrong: there’s nothing undisgruntled about him. He’s constantly grumbling about how much of a pain in the neck everything is, has a drinking habit that fringes on alcoholism, and will pick a fight if you so much as sneeze in his general direction. Jean will only ever tell it like it is, but it’s not because he’s oblivious to other’s feelings, it’s just that he doesn’t care.

Skills: Experienced car mechanic, speaks two languages, skilled in mental arithmetic. Doesn’t play the banjo. (that’s a skill) (:kappaross:)

Background: Jean was born to a rich family and received an excellent education. That is, until his mid-teenage years, where a delinquent streak lead to gang membership and he eventually found himself in jail. Disowned by his parents and left with nothing, his release from prison saw him wandering the country, doing odd jobs to support both himself and his growing drinking habit. He took to mechanic work reasonably well and wound up as a car repairman after a few years. Though he now has well over a decade of mechanics experience under his belt, Jean never managed to advance his career due occasional tardiness caused by nights of overdrinking.

Personality: Quiet and kind, but aloof. moves and speaks with a noble bearing around all but her closest friends.

Skills: Expert sharpshooter. In-depth understanding of politics and political maneuvering. Speaks 3 languages.

Background: Born as the 5th child and 2nd daughter to a noble family, she was raised in the lap of luxury. However, being the 5th child she stood to inherit little but a name and was pushed to marry other nobility from a young age. At 13 she had an accident involving a fire that left her face badly scared and blind in one eye. through extensive plastic surgery most of the damage was able to be repaired but she remained with some scars which only lowered her marriage prospects. thus at age 18 she left her family to pursue a career of her own in computers.

Wizz - bruce: show
Username: Wizzquizz
Character Name: Bruce Stark, Playboy Billionaire
Sex: Male
Age: 23

Appearance: Bruce is a tall, muscular man with black hair, that is usually purposely disheveled. He has a way of looking at women with his bright green eyes that make him feel trustworthy. He walks around wearing a colorful suits. Bruce often has some sort of alcoholic beverage in his hand that he taps his rings against.

Personality: His title describes him. He has the thought of "I can get anything I want" (Even when he can't). He is often a lax jokester even when he shouldn't be. Calm and collected he often thinks before acting, quickly saying a witty come back to any out-lash towards him.

Skills: Being charming, extremely intelligent, and money.

Background: Bruce was born to a rich family. His family ran and owned the multi-billion dollar company Super Massive Inc. Being an only child Bruce quickly rose to fame as he was raised in the lights of paparazzi. Bruce was mistreated by his parents and often left in the arms of the family butler, Edwin Pennyworth. Edwin raised Bruce with the manners a young man should have. Bruce began saving his weekly allowance from his parents until Bruce finally earned enough to have his own parents assassinated bringing around his reign to the family throne. Along with his rule came a healthy raise to the family butler's pay. He quickly expanded the Company further creating bigger and stronger weapons. As he expanded Super Massive Inc. he continued to become bored with his life looking for something to liven it up. Then he found it a small company, by the name of Incandescent Laboratories. He now has decided to join the program with the thoughts of funding it should things go his way.

savvy - gideon: show
Username: Sa-v
Character name: Gideon Falk
Sex: Male
Age: 25

Appearance: Gideon is a lanky, almost skeletally wiry caucasian figure of 6 foot 2. His musculature is rather defined, the result of long drumming sessions. The young man keeps his head shaven and waxed with the exception of a band running down the middle of his cranium, sporting enough jet-black hair to style into a foot-tall mohawk. Gideon rarely bothers putting it up, however, as he prefers to save the ‘hawk for concerts and other special occasions. That, and hair gel is expensive. Gideon does keep himself clean-shaven most of the time, keen on preserving “the look”.

A pair of tattoos dedicated to Gideon’s band, Soaktorch, decorate his shoulders. More often than not, the drummer performs shirtless in ratty jeans, though when not in concert he wears a black leather vest, with or without a selection of band t-shirts underneath. Gideon wears a bear claw on a silver chain around his neck, a gift from his best friend, Tony.

Personality: Gideon is a happy dude, ecstatic when he’s banging his heart out on the drums and all around pleasant to be around when he is not. He is a perpetual fan and perpetrator of practical jokes, though he knows when to call it quits to preserve his friendships. Loyal to a fault, Gideon will side with his friends even when he knows they are wrong, even if only to try to steer them back on the right path eventually. The deadly drummer rarely backs down from a challenge, a trait that has landed him in more than a few fist fights. Still, he does not actively seek out confrontation, preferring instead to focus his competitive nature on being as good at music as he can possibly be. Gideon is a passionate fellow, but his fairly mellow demeanor allows him to direct that passion with a cool head.

Skills: Excellent drummer, superb sense of rhythm, decent in a fist fight.

Background: Gideon grew up in a fairly low-income household with three siblings and parents who struggled to make ends meet. Still, despite their financial failings, his mother and father loved their children and provided as best they could. Gideon’s mother was a music instructor, and the boy fell in love with the drums at an early age. He practiced night and day, and evidently he had some gift for it, as his progress demonstrated.

Come highschool, Gideon was still as passionate as ever, though he had yet to find a group of people with which he felt he could launch a music career. It was at a free Auguspeed concert in October of his second year that he would meet his best friend and future bandmate, Anthony Gayne. Anthony, or Tony, as he preferred to be called, was the only child of corporate billionaire Grey Gayne. He did not share his father’s enthusiasm for the world of business, but his love of music and his proficiency at the electric guitar allowed him to hit it off with Gideon immediately. The two formed the beginnings of a band, and thanks to Tony’s connections, within a few months they had recruited the missing pieces of their ensemble. Soaktorch was born.

After a rocky start as they learned to work with each other, the group became reasonably successful, something of a local hit. Gideon could not afford to go to post-secondary, nor could Tony convince his own father to fund what the elder Gayne perceived to be a waste of time, but thankfully Soaktorch was making enough money that they could scrape by on their own, living together in a cheap apartment flat. Despite his circumstances, Gideon felt like he was in heaven, making music all day with some of his best friends. It was not to last. Tony was forcefully relocated by his father and sent to pursue a business degree, an inevitability which he had put off for as long as possible. Without their lead guitarist the group faltered and eventually dissolved, leaving Gideon on the street. His family simply could not afford to take him back in, so he floated from job to job and band to band, never encountering as much success as he once had. Without Tony, it felt as though the magic was gone. Gideon floundered. A few years later, a hungry drummer stumbled upon the ad for new recruits to a piloting program by Incandescent Laboratories. With nothing to lose but a job flipping patties at the neighborhood joint, he decided to apply.

LG - Adrian: show
Username: Live Grenade
Character Name: Adrian Albright
Sex: Male
Age: 18

Appearance: Adrain is a slight young man with a very unassuming stature and pale complexion. His hair is a light blond and kept in a short undercut. He has droopy grey eyes and semi-constant smile that lend his countenance an air of lax amicability. His legs are atrophied from disuse.
Adrian’s standard wear consists of black sneakers, grey sweat pants, a white t-shirt and a navy blue hoodie that typically stays unzipped. He also sports a pair of prescription glasses for short-sightedness.

Personality: Adrian is an easygoing young man who is perhaps a bit too naive for his own good. He is irksomely inquisitive, often pursuing inappropriate lines of questioning without meaning to. His thirst for knowledge is matched, and surpassed, only by his indomitable ambition. When he wants something, he will go to extreme lengths to achieve it, kept in check only by his own moral compass. He occasionally resorts to using underhanded tactics to manipulate others in certain instances. Sometimes, his behavior can be petty, causing him to act up over trifling matters. He can become annoyed or dismayed at the drop of a hat, especially when things don't go his way, and he has been known to hold grudges. Adrian is used to participating in small talk and conversing with numerous different people in short spans of time, and while he is very accommodating, he doesn't enjoy the typically brief, shallow exchanges. His methods are deliberate, his speech and thought process steady and drawn-out, which can make him seem slow on the uptake. However, he possesses a will of iron and is able to remain tranquil under even in the most trying of circumstances.

Misc. Facts: Adrain has congenital paraplegia and has been unable to move his legs since birth. He moves around using a motorized wheelchair designed and built by his mother.

Background: Adrian was raised by his mother, a talented auto mechanic. She lived and breathed her work, which made balancing her job and taking care of her paraplegic son all the more difficult. The single mother did what she could to bring Adrian up right, but she was far from perfect. Her smoking habit and all-consuming passion for mechanics made for a very hands-off style of parenting.
When Adrian was old enough to start attending school, most of the students and faculty treated him kindly. Unfortunately, this was an artificial kindness, conferred to him because others felt obligated to be nice to a kid in a wheelchair. As such, social interactions between himself and others never felt genuine, making meaningful relationships hard to come by. In fact, the only real friends he made were people who had initially been apathetic toward him.
As Adrian grew, he wanted to help his mother with her work. While she never allowed him to actively participate, she accommodated his wishes by letting him manage her tools and answering any questions he posed. As he progressed through middle and high school, the boy worked to achieve high marks, hoping that would help remove some weigh from his mother’s shoulders. When he finally graduated, she surprised him with a motorized wheelchair of her design, capable of elevating its user to a standing position. After that, Adrian was set to apply to a prestigious college on a full scholarship. Less than a week before he was scheduled to move, however, he caught wind of a promotion from Incandescent Laboratories. The position it advertised was one that the young man was unable to ignore. Even if it wound up being a wash, he had to at least check this out.

Kirby - Sven: show
Username: Doqtor Kirby
Character Name: Sven K. Moskorov
Sex: Male
Age: 28

Appearance: Sven is a well-kept average man. Not too sharp, not too baggy. Other than the classic jeans and T, Sven wears a black trench coat and dons a matching fedora to cover his medium-length black hair. Sven has a scar across his right eye, which has colored his iris red. The other eye is green. He is always clean shaven, and clean hygiene. Across his neck is a locket necklace, which he shows to everybody; inside are two small pictures, one of his wife and one of his daughter. Dangling from his jeans pocket is a pocket watch handed down to him from his father.

Personality: Sven is a very casual man and a romantic; often seen with his wife Mai. Sven is outgoing and always acts positively around others. He's the "cheer you up" guy when you're down. But Sven is also bipolar. Despite very few things turning him the wrong way, the most notable trigger is offending Mai. He's also been previously diagnosed with schizophrenia, however it has not been confirmed.

Skills: Sven has a fancy in making something out of nothing. That is, he can make just about anything from what's around him.

Background: Sven had spent the majority of his childhood in an orphanage. Both of his parents were young drug addicts who were not ready for a child, and so he was dumped off at three weeks old. Until he was twenty years old, Sven developed his own family from the other children of the orphanage, especially two other men his age: Ki and Bradley. When he turned 21, Sven had adopted the surname Moskorov, after a retired game developer. Sven then met Mai, which he finds out later that she is also an orphan. After being in a relationship for 4 years, Sven and Mai get married and have their first and only child, a daughter named Azalea.

Sven, Ki, and Bradley still keep in touch.

Well since I jumped in prematurely I might as well post this then.

Username: Doqtor Kirby
Character Name: Sven K. Moskorov
Sex: Male
Age: 28

Appearance: Sven is a well-kept average man. Not too sharp, not too baggy. Other than the classic jeans and T, Sven wears a black trench coat and dons a matching fedora to cover his medium-length black hair. Sven has a scar across his right eye, which has colored his iris red. The other eye is green. He is always clean shaven, and clean hygiene. Across his neck is a locket necklace, which he shows to everybody; inside are two small pictures, one of his wife and one of his daughter. Dangling from his jeans pocket is a pocket watch handed down to him from his father.

Personality: Sven is a very casual man and a romantic; often seen with his wife Mai. Sven is outgoing and always acts positively around others. He's the "cheer you up" guy when you're down. But Sven is also bipolar. Despite very few things turning him the wrong way, the most notable trigger is offending Mai. He's also been previously diagnosed with schizophrenia, however it has not been confirmed.

Skills: Sven has a fancy in making something out of nothing. That is, he can make just about anything from what's around him.

Background: Sven had spent the majority of his childhood in an orphanage. Both of his parents were young drug addicts who were not ready for a child, and so he was dumped off at three weeks old. Until he was twenty years old, Sven developed his own family from the other children of the orphanage, especially two other men his age: Ki and Bradley. When he turned 21, Sven had adopted the surname Moskorov, after a retired game developer. Sven then met Mai, which he finds out later that she is also an orphan. After being in a relationship for 4 years, Sven and Mai get married and have their first and only child, a daughter named Azalea.

Sven, Ki, and Bradley still keep in touch.

WIP for later: show
Character Name: Mæges (Mai) Moskorov
Sex: Female
Age: 25

Appearance: Mai, like Sven, is well-kept and moderately self-conscious about her appearance. Mai wears a casual dress that always matches the color of Sven's tee. Her makeup is never overdone, and always just the right amount for the occasion. Mai wears a homemade bracelet on her right wrist, which her daughter made. Her blonde hair is kept in a double pigtail, akin to a common anime hairstyle. Mai's blue eyes glimmer even in the darkest of places and her voice is considered a "perfect voice"; that is, a voice that falls under certain sound standards that Mai never liked and because of it, she never considered her voice to be great.

Personality: Mai has chronic depression. To combat this, she has taught herself to be forward and cheerful to everybody, like her husband Sven. She's very quick to meet new people and talk about anything and everything. Mai is a rather quick woman, which Sven finds exciting despite having to catch up with her constantly. Mai never goes anywhere without her husband, as his presence has helped Mai for the seven years they have been together.

Skills: Mai is quick to find issues with anything.

Background: Mæges Jeanette Pomereane was left at Traiton General Hospital with nobody to claim her. Eventually she was dropped off at the local orphanage where she would stay until she turned seventeen, to which she left Traiton to pursue life, happiness, and family. Numerous failed boyfriends have passed until Mai met Sven, which she finds out later that he is also an orphan. After being in a relationship for 4 years, Mai and Sven get married and have their first and only child, a daughter named Azalea.

Mai never plans on returning to Traiton, or finding out her birth parents.

I hate to cut things short like this but, well, it's about time we snipped that loose end. Proximity will be on indefinite hiatus before we begin chapter 1 proper, potentially forever depending on how things go. But think of it this way. We finished the prologue. Congratulations, everybody. Take a load off and use the mental faculties you've been using to worry about this RP to do something else. Post in a different one. Recharge. I don't know. GG all.

Character Name: Jessica Marmelatzte
Sex: Female
Age: 17
Appearance: If you had to compare her to another young girl her age, perhaps the Pop Idol Jazzleberry Zam, Jessica would look rather plain and lifeless, often devoid of color. Her pale face has small features, made smaller the frame her hair makes around it, and the way she tiredly half closes her eyes. While thin and short, her sluggish moments make her feel weighty even though her attire is also normally light and floaty. Her black hair is long and tied back into a ponytail that circles back onto itself providing the illusion it has no beginning or end. All is not lost though as her blue eyes are bright and clean making anyone that lock eyes with her feel a sense of wonderment, almost like they've learned an amazing secret.
Personality: Jessica is very moderate, never too polite, but never trying to be rude, though her monotone can often make her seem more on the rude side. She likes what she likes, and isn't afraid to show that to others, but it you can find one of the few things she dislikes she'll let you know. One of the things she likes is jokes, but of her likes, that's probably the one she's objectively bad at. Please understand.
Skills: Bad jokes, a healthy interest in robotics, skilled in practical effects and choreography, not a terrible singer, and knowledge of advertising and management
Misc. Facts: People often get the impression they know her, but that's just silly.
Background: Jessica is a perfectly normal girl with absolutely no incredible events in her life. Honestly she only goes out when she has to, her parents enabling her to be a shut in loser by absolutely babying her and not making her do anything.
