Purgatory.Calliope

Muse of Epic Poetry: "This poem would be better with aliens."

a character in “Purgatory Remix”, as played by LovelyLisey

Factions, Families, Clans, and Empires

Description

Age: 4,172 years old

Backstage Pass: Is a muse.

Calliope is short and tiny. She has big brown eyes, and she would have long curly black hair, except that she cropped her hair and dyed it blue. Why? Because. She has a penchant for Gothic Lolita dresses because it makes her look cool, and because people are going to assume she's an evil little girl anyway. She has a tattoo of a fox on her upper arm, which she usually hides because otherwise people will try to make drug deals and/or arrest her.

Personality

Calliope is, actually, pretty normal. She tends to be on the quiet side, as she prefers to let other people dominate the conversation. However, she is not unfriendly, as it's hard to go over four thousand years without developing some social skills. She will go to any extreme to protect people that she cares about. Calliope is pretty nice, and she's even kind of wise. But she has a weakness.

Some people are addicted to drinking. Some people are addicted to gambling.

Calliope is addicted to adventure.

If given a choice, she will follow the path of most resistance. She will always follow the rabbit down the hole. If something exciting is happening in Purgatory, Calliope wants to be at the center of it. Fortunately, Calliope's definition of 'exciting' has gotten lax over the years, as alien invasions are a dime a dozen and there's always some bandit stealing pretty maidens away. However, if anything does capture Calliope's attention, she tends to become quite unlike herself. She will risk everything, just to see the adventure through.

History

Calliope is the muse of epic poetry, which means that her hobby is to go into the human world and inspire people to write poetry that is really freaking epic.

Most of the time, she runs Calliope's Tavern in Grand City.

If you want to know her full backstory, just go read up on Greek Mythology. It was pretty much like that. Except probably weirder. Because the truth is always weirder.

Recently, Calliope's adventures have consisted of her brief alliance with The Fox. When the angels abandoned Grand City for Heaven, Calliope hung out with The Fox because he seemed to be the only person trying to do something, although she was not sure what. Then she realized that he was, like, evil and stuff, so she turned tail and joined the Bureau instead. Of course, she soon became bored with the Bureau, and she went back to her tavern. The Bureau still sometimes calls on her for detective work, although she hasn't been very helpful recently. However, the new 'soul murders' have piqued her interest...

Calliope has heightened reflexes and strength as the result of being an immortal creature. She also can fight pretty well with a sword. People often critique her for being cliche for using a sword, but her defense has always been, "Hey! Beowulf taught me!"

So begins...

I would like a little more detail though, if you don't mind? It doesn't have to be anything super long, but maybe a little more about her history in particular.

....I'm, not sure. New to this website. But, I think you can edit her if you go to the characters tab on the roleplay and click edit.

I also want to wait a day or two just to let people get their applications in. But, not too long! I would like to start by Wednesday, by the very latest. Sorry for the wait. :(

Me too. I haven't done chat roleplays in the longest time. I just happened to be Googling random roleplay stuff and found this website, and it's INCREDIBLE.

No problem! A Jurassic Park Rp sounds pretty awesome. You should make one on the tab! I never read the book, only saw the movie, but it sounds like the book is pretty good.

Anyway, sounds like I should take the first turn in the flashback? Is this in the human world or has JJJ gotten to Purgatory yet?
