Name: Miyah

Appearance:

Miyah4.png miyah.coyote.jpg

 

Supernatural Type: Coyote Shifter

Known Affiliations: Ember, the Badger Shifter

Rumors & Quotes: TBA


Background:

Spoiler

The coyote and the badger had been hunting partners for two seasons when the mage happened upon them. She was an environmentalist and was seeking to give nature a way to fight back. She cast her spell on the coyote and the badger. It wasn’t until later that the coyote and badger would realize anything had been done to them.

 

It wasn’t until they encountered the campsite with a latched container where the food was stored that they would realize how different they had become. Unable to work the latch in their animal forms, it was the coyote who first discovered it. As she struggled with the latch, she finally reached up with her hands to undo the latch and promptly fell over backwards in surprise. The badger in an attempt to comfort her friend, reached out with hands of her own to steady her coyote friend.
 

As they sat there, they looked at each other and realized they could speak. Short discussion later and having obtained the goods, a coyote and a badger made their exit from the campsite.


It has been a year since this first time and they have learned to interact some with human society. They consider themselves sisters despite their form differences and difference of species. They have also named themselves. The coyote took the name of Miyah and the badger took the name of Ember. They both chose the same last name of Smith.


More recently, Miyah and Ember have found themselves in the New Orleans area. Drawn here for some reason.

Physical

Advantages: Agility, Athletic, Attractive, Scrappy

Skills

Advantages: Fashionable, Hustler, Long Distance Runner, Stealthy, Tooth and Claw Combatant, Wilderness Survivalist (covers hunting/tracking in wilderness, less applicable in urban areas)

Disadvantages: (Social) Fly in the Web, Technology Inept, Uneducated

 

Perks

Advantages: Pack Mates, Hustler Proceeds

Disadvantages: Outsider

 

Powers

Advantages: Magic (Illusions) x2, Regeneration, Shapeshifting

Disadvantages: Shifter's Metabolism; One Body, Many Forms

 

Shifter's Metabolism: Changing forms and supporting the regeneration of a shifter's body requires massive caloric intake. You can always eat and eat well, but any day you shift or employ your regeneration, you need to eat an eye-popping amount of food. This can end up clearing out prey in a wilderness area or draining your wallet if you're an urban shifter. Your conspicuous consumption is something that can also be tracked - either through prey depletion, a regularly overly large grocery bill, or the noteworthiness of clearing out the local buffet on a semi-regular basis. Until they ban you to save their profit margin. If you don't get your necessary calories, you become lethargic and cranky, even hangry; push it off long enough of and you risk not being able to shift or regen when you need to until you get some more grub. 

 

One Body, Many Forms: While you can change shapes, injuries don't modify themselves to the new size. Meaning if you come out of a large form back to a human form or need to drop from human to four legs to run, your wounds travel with at the same size they were on the other body. While you might be able to get a reprieve of wounds by shifting up, that also strains your metabolism (see above) which can affect your ability to actually finish shifting up or regenerate while in the larger form. If you have to shift down, you're risking being overwhelmed by your wounds. It's certainly not fun and may hamper your ability to run or to convince the nice police officer that you were at a swinger's party and not a big bear eating the evidence of a supernatural attack.

Berserker: You fly into an uncontrollable battle rage. It makes you a killing machine, but one that's as likely to hit friend as well as foe. Coming out of a Berseker rage is also exhausting. You'll need some recharge time after you calm down.

NaHino_Rei_600.1655314.jpg.211570e3473fc2caa02071d9e8107e82.jpgme: Kiba Shiori

Appearance: A pretty, petite little Japanese woman, often clad in the attire of a Shinto priestess, though is acquiring a more Western wardrobe now. She is unfailingly polite, demure, self-effacing, and the very model of Eastern femininity...at least if she's not angry. Her eyes are deep and brown, though there is a hint of something else to them, something red, if one looks hard enough.

image.png.53809279e5569c005bacb4ff47c39d63.png 

Personal Information

Identity: Artemis Carter

Nickname: Art

Occupation: Bouncer

Marital Status: single

Living Relatives: doesn't mention them much

 

Physical Traits

Weight: 240

Height: 6’0”

Apparent age: mid-twenties

Age: 22

Gender: female

Eye Color: Dark Brown

Hair Color: Black

Handedness: Right

 

Appearance and Personality

Personality: Gruff and off-putting, Art works to keep people at bay. She’s been mocked and hurt by assholes one time too many for her to trust people without getting to know them. She expects them to hurt her, so she keeps them away. She has a short fuse with an explosive temper, and people sometimes find it hard to get past her prickly nature to know her. Her imposing build adds to the aura of “Do Not Provoke” that steers people away from her.

 

Once she is a friend, she’s loyal to that person. She’s also something of a softie, deep in her heart. She can be generous to strangers, especially when their sob stories align with her personal experiences. She is protective of kids and animals alike. 

 

Appearance: Art is tall and broad. With the mohawk she favors, she appears to be more masculine, and since men’s clothing fits her better than woman’s, she tends to be “Sir”ed a lot. Art has given up fighting others’ perceptions, dressing comfortably in pants with pockets. In New Orleans’ LBGT culture, she barely stands out anyway. 

 

Supernatural Type: were-rhino (Abathukutheleyo, “The People Who Become Angry”)

Known Affiliations: New Orleans LBGT community, 

 

Rumors & Quotes:

“Put that bottle down, or you’re gonna eat it.”

 

Background:

Art has been a fixture in the New Orleans LGBT Community for a couple of years now. She started as a bouncer at a bar, but her butch appearance soon got her offers to do security for all the gay festivals. She doesn't have family in town; she's mentioned a mother somewhere in north Louisiana. She doesn't talk about where she comes from, or why she makes normal people so nervous. She definitely won't discuss why sometimes she feels like a normal person and sometimes she feels like a shifter who smells of dry grasslands. She joined the Sable Krewe via introduction through one of the magic users but even they don't know much about her.

Name: Darrik Reynolds

Appearance:

 

spacer.png

 

Supernatural Type: Demon-Blooded

Known Affiliations: Puck

 

Rumors & Quotes:

- Darrik summoned succubi to work in certain sections of the Night Flower district, if you’re daring enough to look for them.

 

Background: Darrik is one of the most controversial members of the New Orleans supernatural community. He entered town several years ago, to, in his own words, “luxuriate in the one place where the Cabal hasn’t castrated the human spirit.” Certainly, he has succeeded in carving his slice out of the Under. Much of it is linked to Puck, both of whom are surprisingly close despite Darrik’s known status as a Demon-Blooded being. Darrik has sometimes performed in the Night Flower venues and collaborates with Puck on their supernatural smuggling ventures.

 

In fact, certain scholars in the community suspect he is the direct offspring of a demonic or fallen angelic-aspected Being of Power. Darrik simply smiled with amusement the one time someone suggested to his face and made no comment on the matter, or about whom his parent might be.

Disadvantages: Known Demon-Blooded (nobody trusts him most of the time)


Powers
Advantages: Demonic Summoner (Summon, Command Lesser, Pact Greater, Banish), Hellfire, Ur-Tongue
Disadvantages:

Demonic Aura (Makes mortals uneasy around him and instinctively drawn to him but afraid/distrustful of him. For those that can see/read auras, his demonic heritage is obvious)

Ritualist (Summoning demons takes at base something to write with and a large enough space to make the summoning circle; more powerful demons/safer summoning takes prepped ritual items, and dedicated space, and not being rushed)

Holy Vulnerability (His demonic heritage makes him particularly susceptible to the attacks of “holy” beings - beings that exist within a dualistic good/evil metaphysics and align themselves as “good.” Being in the places of power of these beings is not necessarily painful or harmful, but it is usually uncomfortable).

 

Combat Style: Fire & Brimstone

Personal Information

Identity: Jonathan LaMontagne

Nickname: Jack

Previous Identity: Miles Traveler

Occupation: Massage Therapist

Marital Status: single

Living Relatives: Ted LaMontagne (father); Dahlia LaMontagne (step-mother); several adopted siblings

 

Physical Traits

Weight: 210

Height: 6’5”

Apparent age: mid-twenties

Age: 25

Gender: male

Eye Color: purple

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Handedness: Right

 

Appearance and Personality

Personality: Jack is laid-back and friendly, with Southern charm and a wide smile. Very few have seen him show a temper or even any negative attitude. Many suspect there’s more to the young man, but he maintains a friendly wall against people getting to know him more. Any relationships outside of his family-group tend to be short-term or casual. There has been speculation that he’s aromantic; he’s not ace due to confirmed sexual contacts, but he’s never expressed romantic desire for anyone, yet. He is expressive and clearly fond of the members of his family, so he is capable of love.

 

Appearance: Though imposingly tall, Jack’s quick smile and casual appearance offsets any sense of foreboding that his appearance might cause. Dark, shaggy hair and a resting puppy-dog face help dispel any remaining sense of menace. Jack is conventionally attractive, with high cheekbones and masculine features. He has strange purple eyes that cause men and women to double-take (and then usually swoon). He’s lanky and long-limbed, prone to bumping his head or hitting his limbs in a world built for smaller people. He tends to wear comfortable clothing rather than fashionable, or even matching; more than once, his step-mother has intercepted him at the entrance to a party with another shirt. 

 

Supernatural Type: Fae-touched

Known Affiliations: NOLA Alternative Health Community, Private Business Community; Personal Fae and vampire associations

 

Rumors & Quotes:

Rumor: For someone with such a quintessential NOLA name, his southern accent is for shit. Story is, Jack did something terrible in another city, and now is here hiding from Tesla Techs. Why Nola hasn’t fed him back to the Cabal is because he has dirt on her or the city. 

 

Rumor: Jack goes between Above and Below, but he has inhuman features. He’s an exposure risk that can bring Tesla down on us all. Worse, people Above notice him.

 

Rumor: He’s incapable of loving someone romantically, but he’s an adequate and somewhat considerate lover. Or so I’ve heard.

 

Quotes: “Why should you book a massage with me? Your chakra is completely out of balance, if you believe that sort of thing. If you don’t, how about I just go with, ‘Your spleen is leaking, and you probably need to have someone look at that.’ I’m available right now.”

 

Background

Jack moved to The Under when he was eight years old. Puck sponsored Jack and his father, Ted. It was known that they were refugees, and it was rumored they were running from Tesla. Everyone assumed it was due to Ted's need to feed off sexual energies, as one of the first things Puck arranged were partners to help meet Ted's needs. The young boy was tutored by Madaline. Not long after his tutorage began, Jack adopted a kitten named Steven. Though it looks like a normal cat, it's far smarter than it should be, and has aged far better than a cat should.

 

Not long after moving, Ted met Dahlia Lupei. A dhampir who’d fled her homeland of Romania ahead of the encroaching Elizabeth’s unification of Europe, she owns Under the Covers, a bookstore in the Under. They bonded over their love of imported fantasy stories and began to date. By the time Jack, as Jonathan was now called, was ten, they were married and began adopting more children. 

 

Jack has become very well known for his healing abilities. Though it can take prolonged contact for him to heal grievous wounds or chronic disease, he has helped many in the Under and Over. To that end, he became a massage therapist, which allows him to treat non-magical people covertly. Steven still lives with him, serving as his constant companion.
