Nephilim; the offspring of Angels and Humans. Blessed of a pure heart and soul untouched by mortal sin, a body untouched by old age or disease; they have lived in human history as saints, martyrs, saviours and heroes for as long as man has walked the earth. Where Heaven could not intervene, it placed a child of holy blood unto the earth to bring hope, peace and guidance to humanity. However, the archdevils of hell grew wise to the machinations of heaven within the third kingdom and sought to use their methods against them. All of them once angels of their own right, they too stole away unto earth and fathered children of unnatural blood.
These became the false prophets, the dictators, the war mongers, the genocidal leaders of the world. Those who promised salvation but instead delivered war, famine disease and death.
When heaven learned of this, it began fighting a proxy war with hell upon earth, each side using its children as warriors against the forces of the other. This was the spark to a long and brutal shadow war fought between the Light and Dark Nephilim through the hidden annals of history, which culminated in one final conflict nearly a century ago that led to the destruction of all Nephilim save for one. The forces of light and dark were both mutually destroyed but for one Dark Nephilim that was stolen away and hidden by the forces of hell in secret.
Under the pretense of not tearing apart the third kingdom heaven and hell both forbade the creation of any further Nephilim, going back to their millennial-old game of preparation and reconnaissance, both realms waiting for the day when the bells of Armageddon would ring and the third kingdom would finally settle whether the forces of heaven or hell would triumph in their eternal war.
However, though the Nephilim are gone, their legacy remains. The children and descendants of the Light Nephilim have banded together. As did their parents and ancestors fight against their enemies in the shadows, so to do they now live in the shadows, working to eradicate the forces of hell wherever they may crop up in the human world. Amongst their ranks they are known as the Novum Ala Fraternity, and they are the first vanguard against the legions of hell.
However, the last Nephilim still remains in the world, somewhere, a secret knife in the darkness ready to stab at heaven's back should the opportunity ever present itself. And the legions of Hell believe such an opportunity will soon be upon them.
So, basically, the rp would take place in modern times and we would all be members of Novum Ala, a secret organization comprised entirely of direct descendants of Light Nephilim, half-human half-angel saints who once walked the earth as saviours. While we would not possess the same immortality a the Nephilim, our angelic blood would still bestow us with several supernatural powers, including the ability to purify/exorcise demons and evil spirits. As such, our organization works in the shadows to uncover and eliminate any hellish activity in the human world and keep the general populous safe from the demons that would stalk or corrupt them.
as the rp would start, news of there being one last Dark Nephilim (child of a human and a fallen angel) alive would reach our order and we would mobilize in order to find and destroy it before it can raise hell on earth.
so, anyone interested?
