I was sitting back in school drawing characters and I figured why not make a new story for a borderlands rp :3
I've been thinking of a borderlands rp but instead of it being the same plot as 1 or 2. I came up with a new plot. This time the characters are either going to be vault hunters that came to pandora in search of the vault of courseeq or a new race that have a mysterious origin. The only thing that can be said for certain they have something to do with all the eridium that started to come out of pandora because of the Hyperion digging. Some scientist and company's took upon themselves to capture these creatures and use there DNA to mix with there weapons and humans.
Some of the people testing the DNA of these creatures may not be company's some might just be independent. One of these scientist studying the human and sub species DNA is a mad woman named tenebaum she was studying these creatures with the hopes of understanding them more as she studied the creatures she would use there eridium like blood on herself the experiments started to allow her to gain similar abilities to the siren relearned is and the ability to control elements or even create new ones. One of the created elements was called mind rape ((just for her entertainment)) it allows whoever is effected to fall under the control of the user.
-I will add more as the rp goes on
Along with her studies she found out that eridium isn't just to power up a living being it can be used to grant life to non living objects but with only a extreme amount of eridium but if not used right the creature creature might not be ugh what's the word alright upstairs. One of her first creations was to make a make shift human teddy bear ((borderlands insane style of a teddy bear ofcourse)) so she just aducted a unlucky vault hunter that was sleeping near her lab and used some eridium to make him into her toy/bodyguard/pet/guard dog. The mutations drove him insane and made him into a killing machine tenebaum didn't really mind and still kept him around before sending him off to find the vault
Species: (can be human/siren/ or the unknown or just a cross breed)
Skills: if you feel like making a skill tree go head
Melee type: ((going have them be customizable or just have them in the chest))
Powers: something that you might be able to get through eridium or something.
Appearance: you can draw your own or just find a cool pic up to you
I'm thinking of either the characters being a escaped experiment from some of the companies or tenebaum.
Oh and if anyone can come up with a name for the unknown that would be great :3.
Age: in his book he's around 14 but before he kidnapped he was 19 but his body doesn't age much anymore
Species: cross breed
Skills: He's a cannibal so whenever he eats enemies he can restore his health. When he chops off people's head with his scythe his melee gets stronger.
The more he kills enemies the more damage his assault rifles and smgs do. Ernest does more damage when using e-grade weapons that regular ones.
His rage mode is instead of sprinting he can teleport from one point to another point and his melee is doubled. Mostly used for sneak attacks or quick melee kills. But he can't teleport through walls or anything just in eye sight like over a enemy or a ledge to far to jump to and such.
History: Ernest was a vault hunter that was born and raised on pandora. Ernest is the son of moxxi but he left when he turned 18 taking up the life of a vault hunter but he didn't really get far until he was kidnapped and turned into a sick and twisted toy for a mad scientist. When he was experimented on he had his heart removed and strangely enough was able to live on because of the unknown's blood but in order to live he constantly needs to both consume flesh and eridium flesh if eridium isn't around which drove him into insanity. Ernest has no memories from before he served tenebaum.
Main weapons: e-grade weapons the assault rifle type. And smg's
Melee weapons: he loves to use his scythe and anything good for cutting off heads ((two handed blades weapons like axes and scythes))
Powers: can incinerate enemies at will using his gauntlet like hand ((it can use the incinerate element))
Character sheet #1 tenebaum*
Species: human siren cross breed*
Personality: tenebaum is the type of woman who's been lonely for so long she lost her mind and started to call her experiments her children and she cares for them like a actual mother would care for her children. But when her children are put in harms risk she will stop at nothing to protect them or avenge them.*
Biography: tenebaum used to work as a scientist for Hyperion but because of her growing emotionally attached to her experiments all the time she was 'fired'. By fired I mean they put her in a cannon and shot her into a random direction on pandora. Ofcourse they respawned her with the new-u station but when she was respawned Tenebaum continued with her research but instead of testing the results of using the unknown specie's blood of humans besides herself she started to study on herself. The experiments eventually gave her the ability to control the elements like a siren or make new ones all together but she must have absorbed a lot of eridium before hand.*
Weapons: small blast of elements*
Powers: she can control and create elements. Use eridium to bring things to life*
Weakness: she needs a constant need for eridium to use her powers*
You can use the main characters to the other game if you like since they might show up with there being a vault and all
Slypheed - Gaige
Shadow light - Lilith
The unknown "fallen angels"
These creatures have a humanoid figure but have pale gray skin and a pair of what is assumed to eridium powered wings and a halo to match to give them the appearance of a angel. These creatures are like humans no one fallen angel are alike they mostly stay in the air or they settle down on the ground and are without a mouth they are able to lure people to them through telepathic begging for aid either with food or a task promising acension into heaven but when a fool falls for there trap they use a hidden mouth in there chest that has a extraordinary long tongue to latch out for the target and pull them in before consuming them. These creatures seem not to only go after humans but anything with a pulse once eaten the corpses are converted into eridium for the angel's use. These hellish creatures are common through out the mountainous areas of pandora and usually are known for carrying great treasure

Feel free to creat your own weapons you can either give a description and I try my hand at sketching them or you sketch them yourselves. The second one is a lot easier for me :3

History: (Warning, copy/pasted from Borderlands wiki, don't know how accurate it is.)
Gaige was a high school student from the planet Eden-5. She originally conceived Deathtrap, then called DT, as a science fair project to combat bullying. Her rival, Marcy Holloway, was a contestant in the science fair as well, and used her father's money to buy her way through the competition. Marcy apparently stole Gaige's DT designs and sold it to Eden-5's police force.
On the day of the science fair, Marcy's father bribed the judges, helping win her first place with a defective robot based on Deathtrap's blueprints. Gaige placed third. Marcy then shoved Gaige, causing Deathtrap to identify her as a hostile. Deathtrap attacked with its claws, causing her to explode due to a miscalibration by Gaige. Gaige was escorted to the principal's office, and faced expulsion and arrest for accidentally murdering her rival. She called her father to create a distraction to help her evade arrest, and bought a ticket to Pandora, where she stowed away on a train leading to Windshear Waste.
Main weapons: (Will work on this tomorrow as well)
Melee type: Using DeathTrap mainly for melee
Powers: Summoning DeathTrap
