Name: Jake Johnson (referred to as JJ most of the time)
Location: Washington, DC
Small biography: Brought up through his childhood as an only child, the interest and understanding of the powers around debates and politics were molded into him by his father. Power is something that one can achieve and once gained can be a very promising asset to call theirs. Every situation has its own “In Power” position that can be gained, in the political life that Jake has chosen, corruption and greed knows no boundaries on the ladder of success. In some situations a bit of funding is needed to put the wheels in motion. An interest in the United States Congress requires Jake to pull out all of the stops this election season. Some powerful people can be obtained to gather favor in the direction one wants, to do such one needs funds.

Would You Rather IC
Join the City Guard OOC
Age: 50 (This is the general age that Dwarves are considered an adult)
Appearance: Standing at the height of 4’4”, his shortness is accompanied by a stout body weight of 175 lbs. Hair long gone from atop his head; a black tribal tattoo representing his home clan takes its place. A thickly grown salt and pepper beard reaches over half of his height, the only time these hairs are not allowed to freely flow is when he is doing something along the lines of his trade. A massive black dragon tattoo calls the majority of his right arm home, not much has been spoken of its origin or meaning. Brown eyes and a tan shade of skin finish off the appearance of what is usually clothed in practical and not fancy apparel.
Previous Occupation: Blacksmith Apprentice, focusing on the forging of metal armor as well as a few choices of weapons and repairing of others items.
Skills: As a trained and tested warrior, Niso’s short and stout form allows him an advantage while wielding a hammer of any grade. Though not able to “see” in the dark, years of underground living allows him an advantage over many races in low lighted areas. As a former blacksmith apprentice a variety of weapons, forms of armor, and other items can be crafted given the right materials are handy. (Will let you decide what armor, items and weapons will be allowed) Niso’s knowledge of crafted items gives him a better understanding of the value and bartering of many items. Years of living underground has given NIso a detailed understanding of stonework and patterns laced within.
Short Bio: Nephew to the Elder Vespar, Niso has taken the “Proving of Value” tradition of the clan’s pledge, and has ventured out of the kindred to prove his worth. Inspiration of ancestral hero’s holds a great place within form, much like religion is held by others. The Unix city guard opportunity has given Niso the opportunity that he needs to perhaps show what value his actions and abilities hold. A learned blacksmith of weapons and armor, many other items can also be crafted with a hammer and flame. Relative knowledge of different items allows a better understanding of their values. The opinions pertaining to other races fall in line with traditional knowledge of the Dwarven kin. (Humans, Elves, and Gnomes are likeable while races such as Giants, Goblins, and Orcs are very disliked or even hated) Once loyalty is gained, nothing will stand between a Dwarf and a friend.
The Guards of Unix IC
The Wars of Demons OOCName: Draven (Sillen) Lyastri
Age: 75 (18 years as a human and 57 as a werewolf)
State: Soulless Werewolf
Personality: While in human form Draven would prefer to go unnoticed, though when being spoken to full attention is given the individual that is speaking out of respect. Draven has sympathy for the human race due to their ignorance pertaining to themselves and the world around them. His soft spoken customs and appreciations should not be taken lightly, Draven Lyastri would not hesitate to strike when the time calls be him in human or wolf form.
History: In December of 1730, Draven Sillen was born into a family of middle class status in cold lands of Kiruna in Sweden. His mother tried to hold off the birth of her child until after January since births within the months of December and January were considered cursed. These beliefs were brought on by it being the stretch of time that sun does not rise. Such beliefs aside Draven, adapting to the continuously cold weather of the region, learned the skill of hunting from his father as it was a necessity for survival as well as a great source of income with the extra meet being sold in the local market. As Draven got older he took over the hunting part of the family business as his father’s age made it better for him to tend to market duties, proving himself with great hauls of meat each time he went out. On his 18th birthday in 1748, not only did Draven not bring the usual gathering, he was found unconscious and wounded at the forests edge.
Upon Draven’s leg was what appeared to be a deep wound caused by the biting of a wolf, having already adorned the birth right of a curse, this just added to the whispers and rumors of the Sillen family. Unable to remember the happenings of that day, the wounds themselves did not see life threatening. Three days after his brush with death, a full moon filled the sky and an empty bed from that day forth was found within Draven’s room. Draven was reborn as it were upon that very eve under the surname of Lyastri, having been taken in by the medium sized wolf pack. Having spent the majority of the years in the snow covered and lowly populated forests of Sweden, to avoid humans as much as possible, the Lyastri elders kept a watchful eye over Draven as he grew and gained better control over his abilities.
57 years after his induction into the pack he calls family, the time came for change. With approval from Amzi Somanda, one of the most respected alpha males throughout the known wolf packs in Europe, the Lyastri clan was allowed to live upon the protected forest grounds of Carmen Martirio found within Devonshire. Entering town every so often, interaction with humans is kept to a minimum and only done such when other means are not available. As a soulless werewolf, he has no control over his actions during a full moon, therefore he makes his way back to the safety of the forests each eve. Not only for the sake of safety, but to be with his pack as well as the other packs that live upon Carmen’s land.
The Wars of Demons IC
Advanced World Creation OOCName: Feron
Godly Appearance: While in his true form Feron’s face is rarely, if ever, visible and to only those that have earned his trust and confidence. A dark hooded robe is the clothing choice of norm while massive feathered wings of white accompanied by dark leathery wings; flight is possible but is rarely used. A double handed bastard sword created by an unknown element is Feron's weapon of choice.
Real World Appearances: For communication with humans and other races of the world various human forms, depending on the situation, can be taken. Mostly a moderately sized male, holding the appearance of a simple human is usually his form of communication. No matter which human form is taken, a crimson tattoo of a decorative bear claw is always present somewhere on the body. When a point is to be made or his godly presence is needed in the real world, a massive bear bearing crimson glyphs across its body and face is known very well by those that worship him. The crimson tattoo of a bear paw that is upon his human form is also used to honor the god either religiously, respectively, or in the need of showing their loyalty.
Sphere: He is known as the God of War, the God of Revenge, and creator of the human race.
Goals: Feron wishes to create a variety of individuals known as humans, where their purpose will be to fulfill their lives before it is time for them to be no more. Such can be completed in various ways, depending on the individual’s perspective of life itself.
Personality: The God of War or as the God of Revenge he is not necessarily considered an evil entity, though simply one that understands the fact that everything that is created must be the strongest to survive or it will fall to stronger versions of their own or other beings found in the world. Being open minded that each person or thing will not always seek out battles or other similar aspects of their lives, such does add a variety to their existence.
Other: A majority of the human race will worship Feron as that of a merciful God, a powerful God, or even a God to be feared while others (a gift presented to the race by Feron) will have the freedom to worship whichever God it is that they so desire. All must understand that no vengeance will be taken upon those that stray, but blessings or other achievements would be granted to the humans that do worship Feron alone.
