Vagrant is a man who appears to be in a healthy physical prime of his life, he seems fit and well fed, his robes of dark grey and black seem in decent shape, if a bit worn, and he does not seem to be suffering from any illness. While not physically imposing by any means, he stands at roughly 6' with an above average build. What most people might notice is his hair, first off, despite him seeming like a normal citizen of the Islands, in other parts of Creation his green hair tends to stand out, not to mention how long and barely kept it looks, as if he simply does not totally care about his hairstyle. Of course, that might be because it takes away from his bright golden eyes, and the insane gleam in them.
When around others, his demeanor is fairly calm and calculating, but hardly anything noticeably unusual. He always has a easy-going smile on his face, body positioned in a careful, non-hostile manner as to not arouse suspicion by others. To those who know who he really is, however, this is a gigantic act. In reality, Vagrant is as brutal and sadistic as they come, the calm smile would be replaced by a cruel, knowing grin, revealing the almost beast-like fangs in his mouth, that gleam in his eye shrinking to an insane pupil. He is no animal when acting out his true nature, but he is in no way a moral human being, before one would know it those plain looking robes would be covered in red.
Careth Noverus was born into nobility, the son of a respected powerful family in the north, a strong and handsome King with his beautiful and elegant wife, leaders of a strong and wealthy providence. He was the second born in his family, Edrun being the first-born, and as such, living in the shadow of his brother's glory. From the time the two could walk, Edrun was prepared to be the heir of the kingdom, he was trained in swordplay, governing fairly, and managing resources, while Careth was simply coddled to simply exist, to be a useless noble who would stand at his brother's side, similg and waving at the rabble during parties, and to do nothing but support his brother's rule. Careth was actually more okay with this than most would expect, so his brother would rule, so he'd live a nice, cushioned life to be waited on hand and foot by servants, he had no issue with that. Edrun was better suited for the throne anyhow, he was simply going to be a friend to the townsfolk, a bolstering face for the hopeless, maybe he would go and learn art or swordplay, a life without worry gave Careth a great feeling of freedom.
And then the unexpected happened, his brother died in a war with a neighboring nation, leaving Careth as the sole heir. It was unexpected, Careth had not coming, and in fact, was not willing to take the throne when it came to him, much to the dismay of the nobility. Careth had been a dark horse to them, a coddled child who did not deserve the throne like his brother did. If anyone deserved the throne in their mind, it was the family's Steward, Lord Faron, not the little snail that got it by simple blood.
However, Careth shakily took the throne out of pressure from the townsfolk. He made every attempt he could to rule effectively using what he had learned on his own while his brother had gotten all the real training, and for a time, he did surprisingly well. For a few years, he was able to manage the kingdom effectively, keep the peasants satisfied, and call on some contacts to take care of more unsightly problems. But that time did not last long, before his 26th year of life the other nobles turned on him. Despite all his actions to keep the kingdom satisfied, the nobles we displeased with his government, mostly because he seemed to value peasant labor more than he did noble influence. They felt cheated, they deserved more. They stationed a coup one night, poisoning Careth and kidnapping him from his home. They wanted it to look like an accident, that Gareth had gone out for a hunting trip in the tundras of the North and died of the cold. What they were not expecting was for him to be propositioned by a demon as he died. The demon offered him power to reclaim the nobility that was ripped away from him, as long as he pledged himself to those who came before the gods. Without any other options, Careth accepted, and was reborn as the violent and brutal Infernal known as "Vagrant of Paradise".
As and infernal, Vagrant had lost most of his carefree and laid-back attitude, his drive and intelligence driving him onward for vengeance. He was ruthless, he was scorned, the betrayal of the nobles really coming into fruition in Vagrant's mad crusades under the Yozis. Every new order he recieved from his leaders were carried out with quick and brutal precision. He was a soldier of subterfuge and revolt, learning exactly how he was overthrown, and using that knowledge to overthrow useless lords in countless cities. His self-hatred, his uselessness before his exaltation driving him to strive for perfection every time, so when he came back home he could walk in and make sure every damned noble would suffer for what they did to him.
However, years passed, the people who overthrew him died ages ago, leaving only their offspring to rule, which would falter him little if he was not an instrument of the Primordials to return Creation to them. He had his orders, and when they were done maybe he could become an overlord again, he just had to eliminate all the other opposition. The gods, the Wyld, the Neverborn and The Chosen of the Gods, which actually confused Vagrant greatly, while he admitted the chosen of the gods were key in the Yozi's downfall, why would they want to eliminate such an asset to creation, after all, they wanted what was best for Creation, right?
So, there you go, a full character sheet, but he may be prone to a few changes, mainly his weapon choice. I love dual wielding, but mechanics wise, I'm not at all competitive right now.

Well at least we have a social guy now. Hmmm...I'm still tweaking.
Hymusia where did you go >.>
An Infernal! *hiss*
Actually, never played an infernal or with an infernal, so no real experience. Although I will slap you two-ways to the moon if he tries any funny business!
As for being "competitive", you have your specialty in social, we don't. Not all about numbers! Besides, just send your spies to rise people against others, send your infernal cult to slaughter all the cows of the enemy!

You're right, of course, and I'm honestly way more excited about how the coadjutor and past life are going to play out. For those who don't know, Past Life gives me 4 bonus dice on any roll I choose, but if the successes of the roll surpass my MDV, my Solar Ancestor comes through and starts playing for me.
So for all we know, I'll be more Solar inclined than Infernal inclined anyway.

Hmm looks like all we need now is Hymusia's character. OH AND MY MUTHAFUCKIN ABYSSAL THAT I'M PLAYING INSTEAD OF PHYSICIAN!
Blackbeard, Grinning Savage of the Frozen Hollow
All good things come to an end.
In the southern Underworld, the First and Forsaken Lion is exiled to the worthless fortress of The Thousands. Far away from any desirable Shadowland, he barely has the land to contain his Legion Sanguinary, the largest force of it's kind in the history of Creation. While many believe the First and Forsaken Lion plans to destroy Gem, the city in the south closest to his location, he has in truth been looking to establish his foothold far away from The Thousands. Sometimes referred to as the Monument of Murder or Genocide’s Nation by the people of Whitewall, Marama’s Fell is easily the single largest shadowland in the North, extending over almost 10,000 square miles. While two other Deathlords have already shown interest in it, the First and Forsaken Lion believes the land is his to own. He senses that soon He Who Holds in Thrall will release the Forsaken Lion from his banishment. With that, he'll be free to sail his forces north to Marama's Fell, and claim it in the name of the Legion Sanguinary. There he will have a Shadowland large enough to field all his forces, and from their, he will conquer the North.
Meticulous Owl, the First and Forsaken Lion's chief adviser, has convinced the Deathlord that an agent should be sent to get the region prepared. Marama's Fell is a hotbed of rival gangs, mortal vagrants, and ghostly warlords. Without a bit of cleanup, the Legion Sanguinary could be stuck for months trying to conquer their new land. In order to make the land easier to take over, Meticulous Owl suggested they send a Deathlord.
Retho Kamui was an Icewalker Barbarian in the Haslanti League. He, and his compatriots would spend their summers trading furs and meat with the Emeralds of the league. During the winter however, they would spend there time raiding iceships on the Whitesea. The coin they made on the exotic goods from these vessels helped them survive the winter months that were less forgiving on the Barbarian tribes with fewer numbers. During one particular raid, Retho and his group were ambushed by another iceship. This one owned by the Ice Squadron, and captained by the famous Dragon-Blooded Haslanti Admiral Blue Dragonfish. The reavers were quickly outnumbered and outmatched by the trained soldiers of the Haslanti League. Retho was strong and skilled, and was able to kill several of the soldiers of the Ice Squadron before having to face Blue Dragonfish himself. It was a quick duel, for while Retho was strong, he was not Exalted. Blue left him with a wound that nearly cut him in half at the waist. While laying on the frozen ice, near death and watching his slayers slowly sail away, he heard a voice. The First and Forsaken Lion offered him a chance live and one day get revenge. All he had to do was agree to forever serve the Deathlord.
The pain in his side was gone, and the cold ice on his back had numbed his entire body to the cold. Retho was content to have just died at that moment. He didn't really care for revenge all that much, and serving anyone went against everything he believed. He was about to tell the First and Forsaken Lion where he could shove his offer, when another voice came to him. This one was physical, and standing right next to him. Meticulous Owl kneeled next to the dying man. In the last few minutes before death took Retho, he told him a story, about a world that would finally end. About a battle that couldn't be described, it had to be seen. He told Retho about all the fun he would have if he kept living. At that moment Retho Kamui was transformed into the Grinning Savage of the Frozen Hollow.
Meticulous Owl helped him understand his powers faster than most his level. He also gave him gifts in the form of the Daiklave, Red King's Lament, and his armored Soulsteel plates. He taught Grinning Savage that it would better serve the Lion and the Legion Sanguinary if he got on the good graces of the Northern powers. His first assignment was to gain the trust of Whitewall. While the Syndic's know what he is, they can't turn away a helping hand when it comes to the problems of Marama's Fell. It is the single largest threat to Whitewall, and if Grinning Savage, or Blackbeard as he prefers to be called, can bring order to the ghosts they are willing to give him a shot.
In order to get access to the city as an ambassador, Blackbeard has agreed to assist one of Whitewall's Guardians on a mission to stop the Winter Folk's abductions. Secretly Blackbeard is also attempting to form a pact with the Winter Folk as well, should the Syndic's refuse him and his mentor an audience.

Notes: Blackbeard's Artifact Rating refer to his Soulsteel Reaver Daiklaive, Red King's Lament. It's odd shape and extra cost allow it to be thrown for 25 yards in a spinning pattern. His other artifact refers to the Soulsteel plates he has added to his armor, this connection of interlocking plates provides the protection equivalent of a buff jacket. His Liege is the First and Forsaken Lion, who has entrusted him with a Soulsteel Bracer, which is enchanted to track his location. His mentor, Meticulous Owl, is attempting to mold Blackbeard into a vanguard for the Legion Sanguinary. In order to prepare him for this role, Meticulous Owl gave Blackbeard a Gem of the Calm Heart to ensure his blood lust never got the better of him. He keeps it socketed into his weapon and is unaware of it's real purpose. Since taking control of a small portion of Marama’s Fell, Blackbeard has been granted a small force of War Ghosts to help hold his territory. They number around 50 and are heavily armed, but Blackbeard dares not use them for more then defense, less the other powers in Marama's Fell move to stop him.
Concept: Conan the Barbarian, Chuck Norris.
Edit: Totally doing this cuz how many times can you have a Solar/Abyssal/Infernal in the same party. We are gonna make history guys.

Wait, what? You're doing this without telling me the 'evil' splats are in now? If only I had known! :O
Doesn't matter, you're right. Let's do this! I'm at least curious how we're going to get along with my slightly zombiephobic Solar in the mix, but it promises some interesting roleplay.
... besides, I'd rather have the Holy Tag on my side if things come down to a brawl.
So we're got most of the spectrum here so far, or at least every Solar sauce in existence so far + Lunar (I'm still here you know!). It's going to be impossible to get along on multiple levels and even the evil axis hates each others guts most of the time (different end of world goals and all). It's going to be....special. I'm also looking at my potential Holy charms...
