    NAME: Xanatos Artificial Intelligence Prototype XIM00001, AKA "Xim"

    GENDER: "Male"

    HERITAGE/RACE: Xanatos Robotics Division

    AGE: 1000+ years old

    WEAPON TYPE/MARTIAL SKILL: None

    APPERANCE:


    THEME SONG: Invader Zim "Opening Theme"

    CHARACTER HISTORY & PERSONALITY: A rather simplistic robot, XIM00001 was an early model prototype Artificially Intelligent robot built by the Xanatos corporation before the Last War. Created to see how well A.I.'s could be adjusted to smaller frames, he was powered by a self-sustaining Ether unit.

    However, certain space limitations resulted in a glitchy, erratic personality and highly exaggerated displays of emotion. He was deemed a failure and given to Xath Raveneye's son as a gift.

    Through unknown means, he managed not only to survive the attack that destroyed Xanatos HQ, but also Chicago. An unknown time later, he escaped the remains of the Xanatos building, making his way into the surrounding wasteland, where he entered a sort of 'hibernation' mode to conserve power.

    Due to the high level of craftsmanship by the Xanatos corporation, he managed to survive the years spent outside largely undamaged, slowly being buried by time until he was found by Selma. Curious, she took him with her back to the cadets' base camp to get Eisen's input on him. And it was during Eisen's investigation of him that she maanged to turn him back on, much to the shock of both Eisen and Selma.

    Once awakened, he latched onto Eisen, deciding she was his 'mommy', in spite of the fact he was built over a thousand years before her, and her repeated objections.

    PERSONAL SKILLS: Unknown

    NAME: Doctor Diedrich Schneider

    GENDER: Male.

    HERITAGE/RACE: German.

    AGE: 36.

    WEAPON TYPE/MARTIAL SKILL: Non. Physical violence are for the insufficiently prepared.

    APPERANCE:


    THEME SONGS: I Am A Scientist, Steal Your Bones.

    CHARACTER HISTORY & PERSONALITY: Dr Schneider is a genius in many fields, particularly robotics, computer programming and weapons design. More specifically, he has a passion for creating computer AIs and building robots.

    Dr Schneider is also, to put it mildly, an antisocial eccentric. He is a borderline sociopath who generally dislikes people and tries to avoid dealing with them if at all possible. Because he is independantly very wealthy, he mostly stays in his enormous home in Sector 1, most of which has been converted into a cross between a robotics workshop and computer lab. He does seem to have a certain basic need for company, however, and so he keeps several personal robots that double as servants and a sort of pseudo-family.

    Dr Schneider lives for his scientific pursuits, and almost everything he does is part of some kind of experiment. He is very selfish and immensely prideful, and he dreams of building the ultimate robot - a machine that will either raise humans out of their mortal existance or replace them altogether. This ambition has driven him to repeatedly recalibrate his robots to give them more realistic behavior - ironically, the man who prefers robots to humans spends most of his time trying to make his robots more human.

    PERSONAL SKILLS: Genius inventor/engineer, and generally an extremely analytical and calculating person. Also very talented in the field of economy.

    POWER TYPE: Aside from his brilliant mind, Dr Schneider's only power is his superhuman ability to not give a damn.

    FULL NAME: Rosemary Brielle Vargreaves

    NICKNAME: Rose

    GENDER: Female

    HERITAGE/RACE: Caucasian with mostly British origins

    AGE: 16

    HEIGHT AND WEIGHT: 5"3'/107 lbs.

    APPEARANCE:


    THEMES:
    [Personal Theme]: Foo Fighters' "Dear Rosemary"
    [Combat Theme]: Pendulum's "Watercolour"

    CHARACTER HISTORY:
    In Eden's prestigious Sector One resides a family whose history dates back two and half millennia ago, the Vargreaves family. Despite their upper class status and lineage of nobility, not much is known about them. While they appear to be a normal family who established a company that studies and reverse engineers old technology, there is an entirely different story behind their manor doors.

    While their power and influence reaches back as far as their history, it was nothing when the first Matron awoke. The Matron, a female within the family who exhibited vast supernatural power, quickly became the head of the household each generation and with some possessing abilities such as controlling humans like puppets or altering destiny itself, it was no surprise that the family profited greatly from it. Unfortunately, it became apparent that they could no afford the risk of having their greatest advantage known to outside sources, thus the family kept their Matrons hidden indoors, never to step outside as long as their power remained. While this practice often led to various negative results, it appeared that one woman's wrath and suffering was worth it all. Then, as mysteriously as it appeared, the powers of the Matron vanished. Plagued with uncertainty and dismay, the family chose to continue their tradition of keeping their daughters indoors until it becomes apparent that they possessed no power.

    Years passed and humanity survived within Eden, and while brief moments of vague power came forth, there was no real sign of the Matron returning. It was this world that Rosemary was born and raised in. Having no contact with the outside world aside from her siblings, family, tutors, and staff, she sought escape in the worlds that her holo-books and movies provided, leading to her developing a vast and overactive imagination. It was much to the dismay of her parents when her older sister showed no signs of the supernatural and even more so when her own power --the power to bring forth beings from her imagination to life-- emerged. While such an ability might have proven worthy enough, her parents felt that her childish behavior was unbecoming of a Matron. Uncertain of what to do with such a heir and with Arcadia catching wind of her powers, the answer became clear. Rosemary was to be sent to the academy.

    PERSONALITY: Cheerful and friendly, one might think she was just a normal girl if it weren't for her childishness and stubbornness in whatever strange beliefs she may concoct.

    PERSONAL SKILLS: As one might imagine from someone with an imagination like hers, she is quite skilled in story telling. She also happens to be rather good with training animals.

    Air: 10
    Fire: 10
    Earth: 10

    Ether: 30

    FIGHTING STYLE/ABILITIES:
    Rosemary's fighting style is one of simplicity and complexity; a combative paradox. As one might imagine from a fighting style taught from books and movies, her movements are rough, unpolished, and leaves multiple openings, yet at the same time one would find it hard to exploit this. While she fights alone, she is aided by many and although her fists cannot reach their targets they still hit true. What is Imaginary becomes Real, and what is Reality is Not. Despite the fact she has not named this style, it goes by many names:

    NATURAL FALLACY
    At first glance, she appears to be an Elemanti, for she seemingly controls the forces of nature. She will tell you otherwise, for it is not she who controls these elements, but rather the beings she brings to life. These creatures assist her in combat in compensation for her lack of skill, which makes Natural Fallacy the foundation of her entire fighting style.

    Each of the Visions can perform their own version of the techniques listed below as long as they have enough influence and power to do so.

    Illusionary Strike [Cost: 1 Point]
    The most basic weapon in Rosemary's arsenal, this ability allows her to summon forth one of her Visions' limbs. While this is mostly used to increase or add elemental damage to her strikes, this can also be used to close in small gaps between her and the target which would have normally resulted in her grazing or missing the strike. Just how these limbs appear or the method of striking varies on the chosen Vision and it's element.

    Fantasy's Roar [Cost: 5 Points]
    A long-ranged projectile attack for when even the Visions' limbs cannot reach their desired target. By bringing forth the head of the chosen Vision, Rosemary can launch an elemental blast. Much like the Illusionary Strike, the projectiles vary from Vision to Vision.

    Natural Fallacy [Cost: 10 Points]
    The pinnacle of the Elemanti abilities she possesses, Natural Fallacy allows much more control over the elements through her Visions. By extending the range of her power, Rosemary can bring forth the Visions a distance away from her as long as their chosen element preexists nearby (a puddle of water, for example). It is also with this ability that the Visions can manipulate and take the form of the alternate forms of their elements (ice from water, electricity from air, etc).

    FICTIONAL REALITY
    The true form of Rosemary's ability. Powered by her unwavering beliefs, this style of techniques focuses on blurring the lines between what is considered impossible and the possible, the intangible with the tangible, and the truth with fantasy.

    The Illogical Shield
    A defensive ability in name only, for it serves only to aid her upon suffering the strike of an enemy. The Illogical Shield allows Rosemary to store the energy of a strike, allowing her to prevent the aftereffects of of the injury aside from the initial pain. Requiring the utmost of concentration, this ability can be negated if her mind is distracted or she falls unconscious. While she must eventually release this energy and suffer the damage, this ability allows her the option to choose when and where she does suffer it, making it vital should the injury threaten her safety.

    The Unbound Cage
    Taking the form of a small and blue bubble projectile, it reveals its true purpose upon impact where it grows to the size of the target and ensnares them within. Those who cannot break free can be subjected to Rosemary's whim as she can alter its size and move it about. Along with controlling the bubble itself, her Visions ability to phase through the bubble-like cage. A handy power against those who stand out of range of her strikes.

    Grasp The Unreal
    With her latent psychic powers growing, Rosemary has discovered that her Visions have not remained unaffected. Having become more accustomed to reality, the energy needed for them to materialize has decreased, and with it their ability to interact with both worlds. Upon a successful strike on a target, the Vision in question can choose to phase through the target and instead of a physical strike, steal a bit of the opponent's energy to replenish her energy. This ability can also allow the Visions to strike through physical objects, however the accuracy of any attack this way depends on whether or not Rosemary can see the the target.

    Boundaries Null
    As her powers grow, does so Rosemary's control over the boundary that separates the worlds of imaginary from reality. This ability allows her to summon forth one of her Visions from a distance by 'launching' them into any particular object and then materializing them, resulting in destroying or heavily damaging said object with the chosen Vision's element. Boundaries Null also builds upon the ability, Natural Fallacy, by extending the range that she can control her Visions from.

    A Brigade of Delusions~An Army of One
    Through understanding her ether power, Rosemary has achieved total mastery of her Visions, allowing her to deploy them all at once. What was once a double strike with a single Illusionary Strike is now an all out assault of five. As one might imagine, an extended use of this ability can quickly drain her of her energy, making this ability best used in short bursts.

    Visions of Rosemary

    Otherwise known as the beings who were once imaginary and were brought to life by Rosemary's power. Currently, she only possesses those that correspond to an element, but one cannot say what dreams will emerge from her next.

    Ruluzuelo
    The Abiding Torrent
    Pronunciation: "Roo-loo-zoolull"
    Nickname: "Rully"
    Element: Water
    Synopsis:
    The eldest of Rosemary's visions, Ruluzuelo has strangely developed into the role of Rosemary's mentor and much like the element he personifies, he can easily adapt to any situation tactically. His appearance was originally based off a turtle Rosemary once saw in holo-book as a toddler.

    Abilities/Techniques:
    Illusionary Strike "Torrent"
    Fantasy's Roar "Torrent"
    Natural Fallacy "Torrent"

    Zethyuulam
    The Tranquil Aerial
    Pronunciation: "Zeth-yew-lom"
    Nickname: "Zetty"
    Element: Air
    Synopsis:
    The second of Rosemary's visions created, Zethyuulam holds the honor of being the one first conjured when her powers first emerged. A chaotic being, his personality itself is a whimsical thing and often changes his emotions regardless of his situation. Due to this, he is indecisive and usually relies on Rosemary or Ruluzuelo to point him in the right direction.

    Abilities/Techniques:
    Illusionary Strike "Aerial"
    Fantasy's Roar "Aerial"
    Natural Fallacy "Aerial"

    Mitchuqulei
    The Halcyon Inferno
    Pronunciation: "Meet-Chew-Coo-Lay"
    Nickname: "Mitty"
    Element: Fire
    Synopsis:
    Impulsive with trigger nearly non-existent, it is no surprise that Mitchuqulei is the most antagonizing of the four visions. Despite her habit of constantly butting heads with Ruluzuelo and known for bullying or bossing around Zethyuulam, she is quite eager to cooperate with others in combat.

    Abilities/Techniques:
    Illusionary Strike "Inferno"
    Fantasy's Roar "Inferno"
    Natural Fallacy "Inferno"

    Gelduraza
    The Transient Terrain
    Pronunciation: "Gell-der-ra-zaa"
    Nickname: "Geldy"
    Element: Earth
    Synopsis:
    The youngest of the visions, Gelduraza is also bit of an enigma to Rosemary and the others. Not much is known save that, despite being asleep most of the day, she seems to have the ability to calm Mitchuqulei down; although one could say she has developed it in order to go back to sleep.

    Abilities/Techniques:
    Illusionary Strike "Terrain"
    Fantasy's Roar "Terrain"
    Natural Fallacy "Terrain"

    NAME: Kugel Schneider

    GENDER: Female/Gynoid.

    HERITAGE/RACE: German/Robot.

    AGE: Physically 18.

    WEAPON TYPE/MARTIAL SKILL: Hunter Attacker Tactical Evaluation System. (HATES.)
    -Laser rifle
    -Jagdhunde

    APPERANCE:

    Kugel is a slender young woman with long dark hair. She usually wears a white lab coat over military body armor.

    THEME SONGS: Bangarang, Laser Laser

    CHARACTER HISTORY & PERSONALITY: Kugel is one of Dr Schneider's older models, a heavily modified version of the Schablone prototype. As such, she can be considered Eisen's older sister of sorts.

    Built as a test runner for the H.A.T.E. System, Kugel is programmed to be an commando type military robot, specializing in assassination and espionage. Dr Schneider only rarely has use for such services, though, which frustrates her as she feels her talents are going to waste. Unlike Eisen, her personality traits are hardwired to a character that fits her intended purpose. As a result, she comes across as bossy, aggressive and a bit sadistic, yet also loyal, protective and determined. She has severe trouble expressing sentiments like affection or sympathy, and usually does so in convoluted ways involving threats and mild abuse.

    Kugel's prefered mode of transport is the Firebrand II, an avanced custom motorcycle. She is often seen in the company of several jagdhunde - robotic dogs generally used for scouting, survailance and tracking.

    Like most of the Schneiderbots, Kugel holds absolute loyalty towards her creator.

    VERBAL QUIRK: Always refers to people using their given name and surname in full, provided both are known to her.

    PERSONAL SKILLS: Marksmanship, espionage and (for some reason) playing the piano.

    Special Abilities:
    -Extremely keen eyesight + a very advanced targeting system, making her capable of sniping targets at range without the use of a scope.
    -Photographic memory
    -Superhuman strenght, speed, durability and agility

    An NPC I doubt I'll use much but...:

    NAME: Diego Dynamo

    GENDER: Male

    HERITAGE/RACE: Spanish Moor

    AGE: Somewhere in his early 30's

    THEME SONG: Devil Buffalo

    WEAPON TYPE/MARTIAL SKILL: Sumo. Uses a fishing rod as a weapon.

    APPERANCE: Height: 6’0. Weight: 175.


    CHARACTER HISTORY & PERSONALITY: Three years ago, Bali had decided to take a stroll through the Sector 10 streets. It was potentially dangerous, yeah, but Bali knew these streets, he knew who was who, and what to avoid. So it was an odd sight for him to gaze upon the twelve bodies of gang members piled onto the sidewalk, their clothes stained in blood. The only clue as to who did this was the sight of an odd man, sporting a business suit, who appeared to be fleeing the scene, shouting a trembling "Ahahaha!" as he went.

    Not having any other leads and fancying himself a sort of protector of the unprotected in his neighborhood, even if they were a bunch of assholes. Bali followed the man, who wasn't exactly hard to track down due to his constant stream of nervous laughter. Eventually, when it seemed the man had stopped to take a breath, Bali caught up to him.

    The exchanged a few words, and then a fight ensued. The details are sketchy but the few eyewitnesses who saw the fight commented that it was quick, no longer than five minutes. It resulted in Bali lying on the pavement, a crumpled mess, coughing up blood as it simultaneously leaked out of his back. The strange man, Diego was said to have said one more thing to Bali that threw him into a rage, though in the state he was in, he was unable to fight back. If Bali's grandfather hadn't got there in time, he would've been a goner.

    As for the odd, man Diego Dynamo, he had fled the scene, though instead of fleeing away, he simply walked off slowly, his originally spastic laughter, taking the much more cruel tone of, "Bwahahahaha!" as he did.


    PERSONAL SKILLS: Expert Fisherman. Other skills unknown...

    POWER TYPE: Elemancer
    -Water: ?
    -Durability: ?
