Music Wars: Fight The Power

Anime based, book based, movie based. For those who don't want to spend extra time developing an original world.

Music Wars: Fight The Power

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby HorusTheHeretic on Wed Oct 10, 2007 4:38 pm

The world in 2056. A despotic government, like that of Orwell, has risen to power. Big Brother knows all, sees all, and punishes all. The Government has banned all art forms from the public, replacing them with propaganda. Books, movies, video games, works of art, and perhaps most importantly, albums, are being destroyed. For a while, rebel organizations formed to protect the arts, but all but one group has been annihilated, that of the Music Protection Movement, but it is teetering on the brink of destruction. Government soldiers are fast approaching the hidden vaults where one of each copy of every album ever made is stored.

Parallel to our dimension, is the realm of thought. All creative works find life here. Characters from every novel, poem, piece of art, and song ever made live together, popping into existence as they are imagined. Hard times have fallen on the realm, as most of the inhabitants have died as a result of the destruction of their respective works. Only the song characters have been left untouched. They are unaware of why all others are dying, but they can feel it in their souls that they are next. The Devil, of Sympathy For The Devil fame, has become aware of the threat and realized that they owe their existence to the residents of the real universe, and has hatched a plan to save music. He will lead a team of song characters into a portal to the other dimension, and stop Big Brother's armies and free the people of the world, so that they can repopulate the creative realm with their ideas.

Join the Devil, who really isn't such a bad guy, in saving your own lives and those of the rest of your fellow ideas. Save creative thought. Save music.

I thought that this would be an interesting thing to do. I've always thought that the characters from songs were interesting because they are very open to interpretation. I want to see how you guys interpret them. I have a list of characters here, but it is by no means complete. Feel free to make one that is not on this list. Be creative and have fun!

Note: Please listen to the song or read about it on wikipedia or something before posting.

"It used to be that our elected officials were veterans of World War II, Vietnam, or the Civil Rights Movement. But with the election of Jesse Ventura in Minnesota and Arnold Schwarzenegger in California, I foresee a day when all our leaders will come from the movie Predator. Think about it. Governor Carl Weathers. No wait: Senator Predator. I bet he has some pretty interesting things to say about tort reform."

CHARACTER ROSTER:

Horus's Characters:

Name: The Devil
Age: Several million years old
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 168 Lbs.
Hair: Slicked back, jet black, with a single streak of silver-gray.
Skin: A nice bronze tan
Eyes: Gold
Appearance: The Devil is always impeccably dressed and done up like a true gentleman. He has a thousand different suits for every occasion, and is never seen without one on. He always wears a tie, considering bow ties to be attire for butlers. He is exceedingly handsome, looking to be about thirty-five in his natural state. He also has a predilection for fedora hats.
Weapons: With mortals, he uses money, charm, and good looks. Against supernatural entities, mystical power second only to God himself.
Hobbies: He enjoys games of strategy, particularly chess, but he counts Risk as a close second favorite. He reads many book, and enjoys studying theology, philosophy, and history. He is a patron of all arts, and an avid actor, musician, singer, writer, and artist. Besides that, he quietly plots against Heaven and observes historical events as they happen and then relives them by traveling back in time.
Personality: The Devil is a man of wealth and taste, but he can be prone to violent rages when in the company of his demon minions. When outside of Hell, he is perfectly calm and cool. He is great fun to be around, and will help out anyone who needs it, trying to befriend them. He might ask for a little something later, a trifle really, just your soul, but he's just looking out for you. He is a bit dramatic sometimes.
Background: The Devil was cast down from Heaven by God after his failed rebellion. Since then, he has rebuilt himself and his empire in the realm of Hell. He has taken to observing the curious little creations of his arch rival, especially humans. He finds their arts, philosophies, and such to be highly entertaining, and respects them quite a bit. He has lived through all of human history and was present at many historical events, including the Crucifixion of Christ, The Russian Revolution, the outbreak and many battles of World War II, and the Kennedy Assassinations. He has also been known to fall in love with mortal women from time to time, sometimes bringing them back to Hell with him for a time.
Goals In Life: To collect as many souls as he can as cleanly and legally as he can, and to merely continue enjoying eternity.
Song Of Origin: Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones

Name: Iron Man
Age:Indeterminable, as he travels time and has no signs of age.
Height: 7'2"
Weight: 652 Lbs.
Hair: None
Skin: Steel and Iron
Eyes: Dark red
Appearance: Iron Man is huge. He dwarfs all but the largest people easily, and his muscles are titanic. His body is mottled plates of iron and steel, bolted and screwed together at the joints and along the contours of his muscles. His eyes burn a deep red far back in his skull, and his features are chiseled and sharp. His face is fixed eternally in a blank, vacant stare.
Weapons (If Any. Most Characters Have No Need):His fists, feet, and whatever he chooses to hit things with.
Hobbies: Pondering his terrible fate, how he has been wronged, and plotting his vengeance.
Personality: Iron Man is cold, silently bitter at the entire world for how they rejected him. He is very intelligent and often comes up with creative ways to take revenge. Other than that, he is consumed with the need for retribution.
Background: Iron Man was once a normal man, a scientist actually. He was the first to discover time travel, but using it, he discovered a horrible calamity in the near future. Taking it upon himself to save mankind, he began working tirelessly to avert the catastrophe. An integral part of his machine failed, and he was forced to venture inside its core, which had a colossally powerful magnetic field. He repaired the machine and saved Earth, but at the cost of his body. He nearly died in the process, and in fact his heart stopped several times. In that time, he was transformed into a metal behemoth and resurrected by the power of the machine he lay dying in. Upon emerging from his lab, he was shunned and rejected by the people of the world. He was cast out from society, even his own family. Consumed with rage, he began killing the people he once saved.
Goals In Life: Vengeance against the ungrateful population of Earth.
Song Of Origin: Iron Man by Black Sabbath.

Skin: Fair and freckled.
Eyes: Kaleidescope. Just kidding--one eye is mottled green and brown and the other sometimes looks green, blue, or violet depending on the light.

Her face is well-kept and radiant. She always wears a pair of white-rimmed sunglasses studded with diamonds, which she calls, "Oh, these old rhinestones?"
Weapons: Incredible charm and persuasiveness.
Hobbies: Thrift shopping. Strolling into high-end places and tricking security guards into giving her their donuts before ransacking the place at her leisure. She'll aimlessly appear at train stations, pick out a poor sod in a business suit, and take him out for the time of his life. Then she will just as easily disappear.
Personality: Free-minded and impish. Laughs easily, almost maniacally, but is generally sweet-natured, laid-back, and adventurous. Likes to spin around in public places.
Background: The woman grew up homeless in a poor neighborhood. The origin of her powers is unknown. From an early age she learned to hide it and adopted a happy demeanor to hide the pain after she was orphaned. She supplemented her income by trafficking drugs. With her powers of persuasion, she made good with the drug lord. With their influence, she is now head of several entertainment and luxury corporations to give people their hearts' desire.

Jakolentu's Character:

Age: 10,000 years old
Height: 5'6.5"
Weight: 145 lbs
Hair: Smoke Grey
Skin: Pale, with superficial veins a highly saturated blue
Eyes: Frozen shut
Appearance: Leads one to believe he is malnourished. Wears whatever he finds; most recently a dirty dress shirt rolled up to the sleeves, torn dress pants, broken glasses, a leather belt, and a pair of old leather shoes. His unkempt hair is shoulder-length, and he does not smell. It would appear that he has a lot of dandruff but they are actually microscopic snowflakes.
Weapons/Powers: Can transmogrify into an emaciated, half-bear, bipedal creature. In this form, he can give life to ice sculptures, carved in his mind and limited to things he has recently seen. Like a toaster. All ice eventually melts in room temperature.
Hobbies: Meditating, sleeping, and fishing.
Personality: It's been a while and he doesn't interact with people very often so he's a bit thick in the skull, regardless of the broken glasses imply. Clueless for the most part and survives primarily on short-term memory.
Background: Sometime near the end of the ice age, it awoke. At the time it existed as a conscience, an afterthought of the bitter, bitter cold. It was driven from one spot to the next as the ice receded and the glaciers vanished. In what we now know as the Himalayas it found a home of sorts, and took pleasure in playing minds games with the Tibetans. One day, for fun, it injected itself into a host and has continues to live from one host to the next - human or otherwise.
Goals In Life: Make more snow. And perhaps another ice age.
Song Of Origin: The Yeti by Clutch

Name: The Master of Puppets
Age: 32
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 180 lbs
Hair: Black
Skin: Fair
Eyes: Pale grayish blue
Appearance: The Master of Puppets is normal sized, yet remarkable man to behold. Broad shouldered, excellent posture, with an air of arrogance and sophistication. He keeps his black hair combed and his goatee trim and clean. He always wears an expensive black tuxedo, complete with coattails and a top hat. He wears white gloves over his long, dextrious fingers, and carries a straight black cane with a large diamond at the top.
Weapons/Powers: The Master of Puppets needs no weapons, for he controls the minds of his opponents. With a flick of his wrist, a man will stop dead in his tracks and do whatever The Master wants. He can also weave complex and inticing illusions. When things get to hectic to sway others towards his own means, The Master is quite capable of defending himself with his cane.
Hobbies: Playing the piano, and preforming illusions and ventiloquist acts
Personality: The Master of Puppets is arrogant and sophisticated. He regards everyone as a lesser, and looks for ways he can use them to his advantage. He is selfish but exceedingly talented at what he does. It is the only reason most people can stand to work with him.
Background: Born to an exceedingly wealthy family, The Master lived a lavish and luxurious life. He learned to play the piano, went to private schools and became highly educated. Yet his parents died in a tragic fire when he was 9 years old. He was sentto live with his poor uncle who worked as a magician in the local circus. The Master learned many tricks and discovered his own hidden talent, illusion. Yet he learned another thing. He learned that he dispised being poor. He hated the lack of wealth and comfort that his uncle lived in and forced him to live in as well. And for that he hated his uncle. When he learned everything he could from the man he hypnotized him into a coma and left the circus. As he grew older he became the most presigious hypnotists and illusionist in the world. He grew incredibly wealthy, and flaunted it lavishly. Now he lives in his mansion, living the lavish life he had once lost and now has regained.
Goals In Life: The Master wants nothing more than to dominate the minds of others and use them for his personal gains. He has no desire to rule the world. Why would he, when he can simply make others rule it for him?
Song Of Origin: "Master of Puppets" by Metallica
