    Name: Sojourn
    Gender:
    Female
    Age or Apparent Age:
    Early 20's
    Status:
    Secundae
    Title, applicable:
    None
    Home World:
    Elysia

    Sojourn has long blond hair and blue eyes. She is about 5'5 with a hour glass build. She tends to wear tunics and leggings.

    None, Sojourn is an orphan.
    Personality:
    Sojourn is kind hearted and has above average intelligence. She has a strong sense of right and wrong. She is stubborn and tends to keep to herself. Although she likes people, but since she grew up in an orphanage and watched others get adopted out while she stayed, she eventually learned to not get very attached to very many people.
    Brief History:
    Sojourn arrived at the Secundae Orphanage as an infant. She has lived her entire life there. She has no idea who her parents are and learned over time to not make very many friends. It wasn't because she didn't like people but because all her friends would get adopted out. While the caretaker of the orphanage is very kind, Sojourn does feel alone. She wonders why she was given up for the orphanage and why no one else wanted her.

  3. #3
    Name: Optimus Prime
    Gender:
    Male
    Age or Apparent Age:
    Optimus appears to be in his mid 20's
    Status:
    Secundae
    Title, applicable:
    Temporary ruler of the Saber Vortex
    Home World:
    The Saber Vortex
    Appearance (pictures are welcome):



    Optimus has short brown hair and brown eyes. He tends to sport facial stubble. He is about 5'11 with a muscular build.

    Abilities/Powers:
    Optimus' main power is controlling fire. A power he shares with his father. He also is capable of teleportation.
    Weapon of choice: Swords
    Family:
    Rory, Goddess of Protection, mother (deceased). Jett, God of Fire, father (missing). Cid, adopted uncle.
    Personality:
    Optimus Prime tries to be a good person and a fair ruler to his people. He is generally friendly and easy going. However, he does have a very short temper and can be impulsive at times.
    Brief History:
    Optimus Prime has lived his whole life at the Saber Vortex and is the only child of two Firsts, Jett and Rory. His father, Jett, is technically the king, but has been missing for the last three years. His mother, Rory, has passed. The Saber Vortex was a generally peaceful planet until ten years. The planet was attacked by an outside force and in an effort to protect the world and its people, Rory used her powers to defeat the enemy and created a shield over the planet. Not allowing any supernatural beings to enter it, unless they were a part of her family. Sadly, the use of energy cost her life.

    Optimus and his father both took it hard. Jett took to drinking and neglecting both his son and his people. One day, Jett disappeared from the Saber Vortex. That left Optimus to take over as ruler. Thankfully, Cid, his mother's adopted brother, has been there for him. Cid is his mentor. Not only helping rule the planet but also in learning about his powers. Optimus Prime cannot officially become king until two things happen. One, Jett has to abdicate his throne. And two, Optimus has to ascend into Firsthood.

    Name: Cid, formerly known as Zeus
    Gender: Male
    Age or Apparent Age:
    Cid appears to be in his 50's
    Status:
    Ancient God
    Title, applicable:
    God of the Sky, King of Olympus
    Home World:
    Saber Vortex, formerly Olympus
    Appearance (pictures are welcome):



    Cid is about 6'2 with grey hair and a matching bread. He has blue eyes and muscular build.

    Abilities/Powers:
    Cid can create thunder and lightning. He also enjoys technology and creating things. He can shapeshift and mimic voices.
    Weapon of choice:
    Swords
    Family:
    Optimus Prime, adopted nephew. Rory, adopted sister (deceased). Jett, adopted brother-in-law (missing).

    As Zeus, he also fathered many, many children not just with his wife Hera but with many lovers.

    Children by Hera are Hebe, Ares, Enyo and Eris. Phobos and Deimos are his grandsons. Athena is his daughter by Metis.

    Personality:
    Cid has a carefree, easy going personality. He is protective of those he considers his family and tries to be just. He does have a slight ego about himself, but also feels a little bit like a failure because of how his past turned out.
    Brief History:
    Cid was once known as Zeus, the King of Olympus. Being king was good but there were always those that wanted to take his throne. One of the gods he had to look out the most for was, Hera, his wife. He made many mistakes but was also stubborn and never apologized for them. Eventually Hera got fed up with Zeus and his cheating. She planned a coup and while he was killed, Zeus was banished from his own kingdom. He had no way of returning and eventually ended up on the Saber Vortex and took up the name Cid. There he met a young Secundae, named Rory. He took a liking to her, she had been orphaned and he adopted her as his little sister. She could have been his daughter but he felt he had failed too many times in his past. He decided he'd try to be a better brother to someone.

    Cid and Rory were very close. When she reached Firsthood, she met Jett, the prince of the Saber Vortex, and married him. Cid grew especially close to their son, Optimus Prime. He is very devoted his nephew. The life was pretty good for the Prime family until the attack and Rory's death. Jett couldn't handle the loss and Cid had to step up and become a father figure to Optimus. Eventually Jett disappeared and Cid has been helping Optimus rule the planet.

    Name: Hera
    Gender: Female
    Age or Apparent Age:
    Hera appears to be in her mid 30's
    Status:
    Ancient God
    Title, applicable:
    Goddess of Marriage, Queen of Olympus
    Home World:
    Olympus
    Appearance (pictures are welcome):



    Hera is 5'9 with a hourglass build. She has short, dark brown hair, and green eyes.

    Abilities/Powers:
    Hera can create energy bolts and teleport.
    Weapon of choice:
    None, she prefers to use her powers to attack.
    Family:
    Hera has children that Cid fathered. These children are Hebe, Ares, Enyo, and Eris. She was also a stepmother to his other children, such as Athena.
    Personality:
    Hera has a vengeful and hateful nature. Although Queen of Olympus, her husband, Zeus, often made a fool of her. Flaunting his affairs and made her hatred grow and grow for him over the years. She also believes she is always right and is arrogant.
    Brief History:
    Hera had enough of Zeus and his attitude one day. She decided enough was enough and that Olympus needed a change. She staged a coup to get rid of Zeus once and for all. She had hoped he would die but that failed. Instead, Zeus survived and took on the name Cid and started a new life.

    Things didn't work out too well in Olympus without its king. Hera decided to leave that world and track down Zeus. She found that he called himself Cid now and was living on the Saber Vortex. The protection spell Rory put on the planet, prevents her from just teleporting on it.

    Hera, however, does have a plan.

    The Family of War

    The Family of War is the general name for five gods - Ares, Enyo, Eris, Phobos, and Deimos - who both pursue and incite war, violence, and strife. They take delight in blood and the battlefield, and have been known to meddle in wars between mortals or other gods merely for the fun of it and with no other expectation of gain. They are related to or have connections with various other Olympian gods, but the five of them reside on their own world of Arena when they aren't traveling in pursuit of war.


    Name: Ares
    Gender: Male
    Age or Apparent Age: Ancient, appears 45
    Status: Ancient God
    Title: God of War
    Home World: Arena
    Appearance: Ares is tall, tan, and muscular, with a soldier's build. He has dark curly hair, worn neck-length, and dark eyes.



    Abilities/Powers: Battle prowess, physical strength, physical resilience, military intelligence
    Weapon of choice: Sword and spear
    Family: Father of Phobos and Demios (and others,) the sometimes-lover of Aphrodite, brother of Enyo and Eris
    Personality: Although he is the most level-headed of the three siblings and most likely to plan ahead, Ares is a hothead with a foul temper, easy to anger and hasty to resort to violence. He is unforgiving and does not let go of a grudge. Ares does have a sense of justice in his own way, but mortals would often find it a rather skewed one. He delights in combat and the bloodshed of war.

    ***

    Name: Enyo
    Gender: Female
    Age or Apparent Age: Ancient, appears 40
    Status: Ancient God
    Title: Goddess of Destruction
    Home World: Arena
    Appearance: Enyo is strikingly beautiful. She is tall, with long legs, tan skin, and a lean but muscular build. She has long, wavy dark hair and dark eyes.



    Abilities/Powers: Thunder and lightning, heaving large rocks, creative ideas for the destruction of cities
    Weapon of choice: Sword, siege weaponry, magic
    Family: Sister of Ares and Eris, aunt of Phobos and Deimos
    Personality: Enyo is singleminded and determined about creating chaos and making things fall apart. She takes joy in the ruin and plundering of cities. Enyo is a woman of few words, but has a compelling presence and an ability to manipulate mortals to give in to their more destructive impulses.

    ***

    Name: Eris
    Gender: Female
    Age or Apparent Age: Ancient, appears 40
    Status: Ancient God
    Title: Goddess of Discord
    Home World: Arena
    Appearance: Eris is a beautiful woman, curvy but slender, with long red hair and blue eyes. She often has an unreadable half-smile on her face.



    Abilities/Powers: Persuasive voice, physical strength, physical endurance
    Weapon of choice: Spear and magical manipulation
    Family: Sister of Ares and Enyo, aunt of Phobos and Deimos
    Personality: Eris can be both cruel and nurturing, both violent and kind. The stark duality of her nature makes her very unpredictable, and she can become dangerous on a whim, though she may also sometimes impulsively help those who impress her through ambition or hard work.

    ***

    Name: Phobos
    Gender: Male
    Age or Apparent Age: Ancient, appears 25
    Status: Ancient God
    Title: God of Horror
    Home World: Arena
    Appearance: Phobos is muscular bordering on musclebound. He has short dark hair with a moustache and goatee, burning dark eyes, and a slightly sinister smile.



    Abilities/Powers: Terrifying presence, manipulation of dreams and visions
    Weapon of choice: Axe, mental manipulation
    Family: Son of Ares and Aphrodite, twin brother of Deimos, nephew of Enyo and Eris
    Personality: Phobos likes to show off his extremes of sadism. He is incapable of empathy or remorse, and takes delight in inspiring horror and fear. He is intensely violent and favors torture and brutality.

    ***

    Name: Deimos
    Gender: Male
    Age or Apparent Age: Ancient, appears 25
    Status: Ancient God
    Title: God of Dread
    Home World: Arena
    Appearance: Deimos is lean and pale, with curly black hair to just past his ears. He often has either a blank expression or a smirk like he's planning something, and his eyes are slightly glassy.



    Abilities/Powers: Chilling presence, manipulation of dreams and visions
    Weapon of choice: Trident, mental manipulation
    Family: Son of Ares and Aphrodite, twin brother of Phobos, nephew of Enyo and Eris
    Personality: Deimos rarely speaks. His presence alone can cause a feeling of cold fear if he so chooses, as can his empty eyes. He is as capable of violence as his brother, but is more calculating and favors inflicting psychological terror over physical pain.

  8. #8
    Name: Gossamer Portmore

    Gender: Female

    Age: 19

    Status: First (Newly Ascended)

    Title: Goddess of Spite

    Home World: Grace

    Appearance: Just below medium height. Dark brown hair and eyes, and medium skin tone. Muscular, athletic build.



    Abilities/Powers: Knife throwing, shortswords, spear, bow and arrow, hand-to-hand combat, exceptional physical endurance and agility

    Weapon of choice: Throwing knife, spear, or hand-to-hand

    Family: Gossamer is the daughter of two Firsts. Her brother Slate was Secundae also, but was killed before he was able to ascend.

    Personality: The best way to describe Gossamer is "enigmatic." She always has a plan, and all of her actions are very focused, but some of her decisions appear random or nonsensical to observers. She speaks bluntly and is highly pragmatic. At times she shows great kindness to others, but it is often unclear whether she is acting based on compassion or some bizarre form of self-interest. Very few people know the real Gossamer, though many mistakenly think they do.

    Brief History: Like the mortal inhabitants of Grace, Gossamer and her brother Slate were trained to compete in The Game on the world of Arena. Last year, the unthinkable happened when Slate was chosen to compete and he - though he was Secundae - was killed during The Game by an unlikely ragtag alliance of mortals who got insanely lucky. Gossamer ascended to Firsthood, claimed the title of Goddess of Spite, and has declared she will avenge her brother's death. Most assume this means she intends to hunt down the families of his mortal killers (since the competitors themselves eventually also died in The Game) to repay the loss.

    Name: Nicolai McBride

    Gender: Male

    Age: 20

    Status: Magically Enchanced Former Human

    Title: Guard of War

    Home World: His origin is the planet Regulus, he was sent to Arena to serve the Family of War, and he is now stationed on Grace to do their bidding there

    Appearance: Medium height. Sandy hair cut short and blue eyes. Strong, muscular, but lean build.



    Abilities/Powers: Intense physical conditioning, ability to use a sword and crossbow, magical enhancements which allow him to temporarily stun or immobilize a target

    Weapon of choice: Crossbow combined with hindering magic

    Family: Nicolai was given by his family to serve the gods of Arena two years ago. He was the youngest of four brothers, and his mother had really wanted a girl, so when payment was demanded by the gods, Nicolai was considered an acceptable loss.

    Personality: Quiet, studious, and focused. Nicolai appears to have very little in his life except his duties. There is a lot going on beneath the surface of his bland exterior, but he hides it carefully.

    Brief History: Upon being taken to Arena, Nicolai was put through a painful process of magical enhancement and brutal physical training to prepare him to serve the planet's gods. Through this process he became something other than human, but less than a god. Since then Nicolai has kept mostly to himself, disturbed by what he has become, but has had no choice but to serve the gods he was pledged to.

    The Family of War have the ability to magically compel Nicolai (and all their other guards) to do their bidding, although doing requires continuous active focus on the guards in question.

    Name: Athena
    Gender: Female

    Status:
    Ancient God
    Title, applicable:
    Goddess of Wisdom

    Olympus
    Appearance (pictures are welcome):



    Athena is 5'9 with a slim, athletic build. She has long blond hair that she braids and blue eyes. She often dresses in battle armor.

    Abilities/Powers:
    Athena is very skilled with weapons and can teleport and create energy blots.
    Weapon of choice:
    The spear is her weapon of choice.
    Family:
    Athena is one of the daughters of Zeus. Her mother was his lover Metis. Hera, of course, hates her and Athena is the half sister to Zeus' other children.
    Personality:
    Athena is very intelligent and a great leader. She is brave, a great speaker, and others look up to her. Athena cares about the people of Olympus. She is very observant and aware of things around her. She is also very loyal to her father and does not trust Hera.
    Brief History:
    Athena was born to the goddess Metis and was the product of one of Zeus' affairs. Hera immediately wanted to shun her, but Zeus would not allow her to. She often clashes with Ares and his two sisters, Eris and Enyo. She does not agree with their methods.
