Keisha'ra RP Character Creator

Post by NazrinTsunMouse on Sat 16 Apr 2011, 1:41 am

Okay so this RP is about shapeshifters set in ancient times. So yeah here's some info on each of the races of shapeshifters copied directly from the wiki. You don't need to know anything more than that wiki info since this RP will be non canon. Unless you want to claim a canon character from the series and RP them.

Avians

Avians possess extremely efficient respiratory systems, with body temperatures much higher than those of ordinary humans. Most have either dark hair and eyes, and possess the second form of ravens, crows, and sparrows. The exception is the royal family, which take the forms of hawks. Their human forms have golden hair and eyes. All Avians are capable of assuming a Demi form where they retain human shape while sprouting their Avian wings.

The monarchy is descended through the maternal line, or through the Queen, who is known as the "Tuuli Thea". Customarily the reign of the Tuuli Thea ends when her eldest daughter becomes pregnant, thus ensuring continuation of the line. The Tuuli Thea's consort does not receive a title; all avian husbands are referred to as "Alistair" (meaning "protector"). Although the Avian society is matriarchal, men are expected to protect and honor their female counterparts. Couples are irrevocably promised to each other as children; the male, or Alistair, is a constant protective presence in his betrothed's life.

As seen in the traditional betrothal system, Avian culture is quite conservative. Everything is dictated by tradition, with an emphasis on respect to one's elders. Socially, Avians severely repress their emotions, neither laughing nor crying publicly. This control is dubbed "avian reserve", a term coined by other shapeshifter tribes. Couples grow to be close, but refrain from sexual activity until formally wed. Avians cherish music, art, and storytelling.

The Avians and Serpiente have warred for thousands of years. At the start of the series in Hawksong, the royal families of both sides have been nearly decimated while their respective societies and cultures slip further and further into decay.

Serpiente

The serpiente could not be more different from the avians. They wear their emotions openly, even in some situations where a little control might be appropriate, and are much more free-thinking than the avians. Pretty much anything is allowed in serpiente society as long as it doesn't harm anyone. As worshippers of Anhamirak, the serpiente value free choice above virtually everything else. Ordinary serpiente who follow the Cobriana line consist of emerald boas, pythons, vipers, black rats, red rats, taipans, and mambas. Though the white vipers are also serpiente, they are descendants of Maeve, the high priestess who originally stood above Kiesha, and they refuse to acknowledge a cobra as their ruler. The royal line of the serpiente are the Cobriana, cobra shapeshifters and the descendants of Kiesha. The ruler is called the Diente and their husband or wife (referred to as "mate" in serpiente society) is called Nag (male) or Naga (female). Unlike avians, serpiente frequently have relationships before getting married and when they do marry they choose their own mate. Serpiente culture highly values dancing as well as music and art. The dancer's guilds are a land of their own and though they are loyal to the Cobriana, the Diente's power over them is only minimal. Serpiente are very social and are always surrounded by other children while growing up, even when sleeping. This need for company continues throughout their adult lives.

Serpiente are cold-blooded even in human form and as such their body temperature is usually near room temperature. Ordinary serpents have hair in various shades of anything varying from light, honey brown to black. Their eye color can consist of varying jewel tones including amber, sapphire, and emerald. The Cobriana family are known for their black hair and garnet colored eyes, which can hypnotise with a glance while the white vipers are known for white-blonde hair and varying eye colors. All serpents can assume a Demi form which consists of their eyes becoming more brightly colored and the pupils turning into slits. They also grow fangs and snake skin. Their demi-form is less poisonous than their second form, so if bitten, the victim dies slower and more painfully.

The serpentine have been at war with the avians for thousands of years and the two sides have been slaughtering each other frequently and very efficiently. Nobody, save the original falcons of the Dasi, remembers how or why the fighting began

shm'Ahnmik (Falcons)


The falcons are introduced in the second book of the series, Snakecharm and are discussed in detail in the third book, Falcondance. Unlike the avians and the serpiente, who have forgotten much of their origins and all of their magic, the falcon culture has changed very little since the days after the Dasi split. The falcons inhabit an island, which is called Ahnmik. They have their own city, which is every bit as magical as the falcons themselves. Falcon society has a strict hierarchy with even more rules than the avians. Cjarsa is the Empress and together with her heir Araceli she holds complete control of all the falcons. Implying that the royal family is anything but just, flawless, and merciful is treason and punished with death by torture. As saying that the royal family tortures anyone would be implying that they are cruel, any torture is referred to as the Empress' or the Heir's mercy. The Mercy is also the name of the local police force, which does anything the royal family orders them to, be it helping a child in need or torturing someone to death. Falcons are deadly fighters, both physically and magically, and resistance to their rules or sentences will almost certainly result in death. But in spite of their strict social hierarchy, falcons act much more like serpiente than avians because of their similar origins. Falcons value dance and music and every single thing they build is a work of art. Though most falcons have a free choice of mate, they are confined to falcons of the same type as they are. Falcon children are rare, and precious, and each falcon when born causes a shift in their magic, which all falcons can feel. Children between falcons and other species are forbidden as the resulting child will have unbalanced magic. Falcon-serpent cross-breeds in particular are said to be unbalanced because the volatile nature of serpent magic 'burns' the calm falcon half.

Falcons begin studying combat as soon as they are able to walk. They usually begin studying their magic before they are nine years old. This is mostly done in an effort to control their magic. Falcon hierarchy divides them up into several classes with strict bordering lines between them. The classes are usually defined by a person's ability to control their magic or by their origin. There are four types of falcons, each of them is led from one member of the royal family: Gyrfalcon (Cjarsa), Peregrine (Araceli), Aplomado (Syfka), and Merlin (Servos). Cjarsa and Araceli rule the island, Syfka is the falcon's representative to the mainland, and Servos is in charge of the shm'Ecl. The Pure Diamond falcon among their society is a falcon born with magic very strong, but they cannot disobey or lie to members of the royal family.

Falcons usually have fair skin and blonde hair. Their eyes can be any shade of sapphire to blue-green, as well as silver and sometimes violet. Their hair usually develops blue, or violet streaks as they get more familiar with their magic. The customs concerning appearance on Ahnmik are strict, and the un-dyed strands are pinned back. It is also customary on Ahnmik for citizens to appear in Demi-form and not human form, like the serpiente and avians. Only mongrels, criminals, and falcons with unstable magic are forbidden to wear their wings openly. The vast majority of the falcon population wear their wings as a rule.

shm-Ecl The shm'ecl is known to all falcons and is feared by many. It is sometimes referred to as The Void or the endless void, or some variation. It is somewhat akin to the dreamworld, and it can show those who 'ride' the ecl the past, the present, and possible futures. However, it is risky to 'ride' the ecl, because it is seducitive and can lure falcons into trance-like states and usually they do not recover.

Obsidian Guild

The Guild consists mainly of white vipers, Maeve's descendants, and is first described in detail in Wolfcry. They live as exiles from serpiente society, surviving in the forests through hunting and trading with the local wolf pack. Occasionally exiled serpents join them, if the serpent was exiled for crimes they either reform or are sent away to survive in the wilderness, if all they did was refuse to fight in the avian-serpiente war the Guild takes them in. The members of the Guild follow the ways of the Rsh, the lower priests and priestesses of the Dasi cult. The Rsh believed that everyone was connected on a basic level and thus when calling another by name you were really speaking your own name, hence members of the guild did not usually share their names except with their closest friends and family.

The rift between the guild and serpiente society dates back to the days of the Dasi, and they are wary of the Cobriana line. In the past there have been many occasions were amnesties were offered and mass executions were delivered. Though the Guild was pardoned two generations ago, and allowed back into serpiente society, only two members of the guild took up on the offer. Though there are no longer hostilities between the two groups, the guild prefers its wandering ways to the strict laws of Wyvern's Court.

Mistari

This tribe is briefly mentioned in Hawksong. They are tiger shapeshifters who originally lived in Asia but were forced out by humans. They are considered to be very wise and other tribes often come to them for advice in desperate situations. When Zane Cobriana chooses to finally arrange a meeting of the leaders of the Serpiente and Avians after his brother's death, the meeting was arranged to be held in Mistari lands. The Mistari's female leader, the Disa, was the one who suggested the union of the two peoples by the joining of the royal families. They are the oldest of all the shapeshifters. They are mentioned again in Persistence of Memory (a novel by Atwater-Rhodes outside the Kiesha'ra series).

Wolves

The wolves were first mentioned in Snakecharm, and explored indepth in Wolfcry. The wolf shapeshifters live in packs led by an alpha, who can be either male or female. Their society values honor, duty, hunting skills, and strength. Leadership of a pack is determined by brute strength, anyone can challenge an alpha for their position. Each pack lives individually, and there appears to be no unified leadership. The characteristics of each pack varies from pack to pack, though this is mostly determined by the climate in which each pack lives. The packs in the south appear friendly, while those in the north are much harsher.

Lions

These shapeshifters were first introduced in Wolfcry. They have no kingdom or unified leadership, instead they are nomadic prides. They work primarily as mercenaries, traveling from marketplace to marketplace and to where ever their jobs take them.

Occupation: Baker (hence his last name) and Black Smith

Appearance:
Spoiler:

Personality: Generally cheerful, friendly, and social. He loves being both a baker and a black smith. Dancing and music is also a love of his. But just because he's a lover, not a fighter, doesn't mean he can't fight. He's fairly strong, being a black smith and all, and he knows how to handle any weapon as easily as he forges them.

He's the first in his family to become a black smith and he's very good at what he does. Despite that he helps out in his family's business even though he has older siblings who mostly take care of it. Unlike the rest of his family though he is very attracted to the same gender, though with their very open society its not much of a problem.

Post by Molly on Sat 16 Apr 2011, 3:03 pm

Name: Amisi Mehnit

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Race: Serpiente (White viper)

Occupation: Dancer

Appearance:
Spoiler:

*Usually wears the blanket around herself like a dress, toga, or cloak.

Personality: Amisi can come off as a bit childish at times, as she has a optimistic and play attitude toward life. She is extremely social, as is most of her species, and is skilled in making both friends and enemies, depending on if the other person finds her annoying enough or not. Still, for all her childlikeness, she has a tendency to be a flirt, and does so with most cute women she meets, regardless of race.

Bio: As a descendant of Maeve, she was born into the Obsidian Guild, where she lived for most of her childhood as an exile of main Serpiente society. She soon grew lonely in that life, even if there were plenty of other exiled serpents in the group, and desired to return to main society. So, in the dead of night, Amisi ran away and reintegrated herself into the society and culture. With her natural skills in dance, it was obvious for her to join the Dancer's Guild, which has become like a second family to her.

--------------------------

Name: Jafari Tal

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Race: Lion

Occupation: Mercenary (kind of)

Appearance:
Spoiler:

Personality: Jafari is a kind-hearted a soft-spoken girl. she hates conflict, meaning her skills as a mercenary are basically null. She tends to keep to herself most of the time, and tends to stay in her Demi form, as she likes to have some form of protection when she goes out and explores on her own. She spends most of her time out in nature, and carries little with her except for a sleeping bag and some doodads she can trade with.

Bio: Jafari was born to a nomadic pride of lions that spent a lot of time in a jungle region. She was raised to be a mercenary, as most in her pride were, but showed very little skill at it, more capable at doing things like basket weaving, fishing or making medicines than things like fighting. Thus, she became the tribe nurse and cook until she left after she came of age, wanting to go out and explore the world on her own.

Re: Keisha'ra RP Character Creator

Post by Guest on Sun 17 Apr 2011, 1:35 pm

Name: Ralphina

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Race: Wolf

Occupation: Scholar

Appearance:
Spoiler:

Personality: Unlike most of her race, she is physically weak but has a higher level of intellect than most of her kind. She still possesses any enhancements on her senses such as smell, sight, and hearing, and those are far more developed to make up for her lack of physical strength and stamina. She is a little reserved and shy and has a strong sense of inferiority from the abuse she got from her pack before she left it. She also possesses a lot of mercy and wouldn't have the heart to kill.

Bio: She was born as a frail girl who seemed to have no hope of lasting, but somehow survived to her age up to now. She was different from the others, since she didn't have the physical ability and didn't like hunting for her prey. Because of that, she endured a lot of abuse and mockery of being weak. This made her develop a mindset that she is weak and doesn't belong to her pack. She then left and found a use for her potential in knowledge by studying.
