Bullets, Blades, and Brains

Non-Player Characters

a part of “Bullets, Blades, and Brains”, a fictional universe by Scarlet Loup.

It's weird, you know. They told you about heart attacks and strokes and cancer, but they never told you how to avoid joining the ranks of the undead. Is it even worth trying to survive anymore?

Non-Player Characters

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Scarlet Loup on Tue Jan 28, 2014 10:03 pm

Hello there! Obviously, our group can not be made up of just the characters we've created. It's necessary, therefore, to make some non-player characters to fill up the group and give us people to kill off (not many survive zombie apocalypses). I'd really appreciate it if you guys tried to contribute one or two each, since they're easy to make and pretty essential. Thanks! The format for submitting an NPC is below:

Full Name:
Coren Brokenborough


Occupation in Group:
Hunter


Age:
26


Written Personality:
He's a rather cocky son-of-a-gun. He thinks very highly of himself and this apocalypse has only made him even more self-righteous. While skilled as a hunter, surprisingly, he's not exactly a crowd pleaser and not many in the group like him. They respect his skills more than anything and he's rather selfish. If it came down to your life or his, he'd throw you out to the zombies in a second.


Relations to other Characters:
If anyone can deal with him, they're more than likely to honestly be just associated, someone he might share a cigarette or drink with. For one thing, Chloe dislikes him and stays as far away from him as she can.


Who can play this character?
Anyone can use him.


Optional History:
He struggled his entire life with his single mother who was far too depressed to worry about her job as caretaker. So, when he got the chance to go to college and at least try to make something of himself, he went for it. He was at home when the outbreak started and killed his neighbor the second he realized she had lost her mind.

Full Name:
Min-Ji Gwon.

Occupation in Group:
Sentinel.

Age:
24.

Written Personality:
Min-Ji (Or preferably, Minnie.) has a very loud and boisterous personality, loving to talk even if no one is listening. She likes knowing things, and has a bad habit of getting into everyone's business, whether it is wanted or not. She's sweet, and rather lovable in general, but has a nasty mean streak if you touch anyone she cares for. Minnie is actually very sensitive, under her playful exterior, and the whole "end-of-the-world" thing is kind of getting to her.

Relations to other Characters:
Minnie has no blood relation to any in the group, but likes to think of herself as very good friends with everyone (Even if unwelcomed). She has kind of grown on Cyan, who is willing to sit and listen to her blather on about anything and everything.

Who can play this character?
Open to anyone who wishes to use her.

Optional History:
Minnie comes from a very strict, traditional Korean family. When she was finally of age, she abandoned them, wanted to get something more out of life than stuffy traditions and formalities. She went to school to become a self-defense instructor, mostly teaching young children. When the outbreak started, she thought everyone was just going nuts, all getting on some "Hannibal Lector" bandwagon and so on.

Full Name
Isabelle Marie Cortez

Occupation in Group
None.

Age
9 (and a half)

Written Personality
Izzy is very independent and reluctant to accept help from anyone. Despite what her adorable appearance and love for pink might lead one to believe, she doesn't like being coddled either. She's very mature for her age and understands more than what people give her credit for and is extremely street smart. She will often state that she's just using the group for their supplies and will leave them once she learns to aim a gun properly. She doesn't trust any of them further than she can throw them. Her only loyalty is to herself and her brother.

Relations to other Characters
Older sister of Joshamee Cortez. Knows Art from dance classes at the YMCA.

Who can play this character? (Can anyone use them or just specifically you?)
Anyone

Full Name
Joshamee Armand Cortez

Occupation in Group
None.

Age
6 (and three-quarters)

Written Personality
Josh is a very sweet and loving boy who tends to follow the lead of his older sister, though he's really nothing like her. His trust is easily earned and he does enjoy being coddled. He is terrified of the dark and always runs to his sister whenever he's afraid. He tries his best to be brave because that's what he believes his mother would have wanted of him. He does his best not to be useless and is very much a people pleaser, often having a hard time and breaking down when torn between his sister and the others in the group, as she often tells him not to do what they say because they aren't the bosses of them. Still, he tries to be respectful

Relations to other Characters
Younger brother of Isabelle Cortez. Knows Art from dance classes at the YMCA.

Who can play this character?
Anyone

Brief History
The two children were born and raised in the Bronx to an alcoholic father and a mother who worked as a police officer for the NYPD. Their father was abusive and their mother would often kick him out but then let him right back in after he came home sober with flowers and chocolates. There was never a way to really get rid of him. By the time that Isabelle had turned seven, she began taking her brother to the YMCA after school with her so that they could stay there until their mother returned home from work - Their father never dared raise a hand to them in her presence. She knew he was beating them and would beat him in return, but he would just take it out on them when she was gone. It was a vicious cycle that had no end. Until the zombies came. They were waiting outside the YMCA for their mother to pick them up when she called frantically and told them to get inside somewhere and stay there until she called back. She was on her way. Scared, the two headed back into the YMCA and stayed put while madness descended upon the city. But their mother never came. After two days of waiting, they grew restless and hungry. They were locked in a back room with zombies groaning and bumping against the locked door. The only way out was the vents. And so they left. They made it out of city limits by hopping from group to group, always looking for their mother and never staying too long. Finally, Isabelle decided that it was her and Josh against the world. They found a nice hiding spot in the woods where people were camped not too far away and began to steal from the camp while they were sleeping. They were able to go undetected because of their small size and ability to sneak - They had plenty of practice sneaking past their drunk father to get food from the kitchen. But they were caught one day. Isabelle, to be specific. Nathan and Robyn followed her back to their hiding spot after Art pointed out that "A munchkin just jacked our water and Doritos". Isabelle was hard to convince, but she was unable to resist Nathan's charm and Robyn's motherly smile, allowing she and her brother to be taken back to the group to be taken care of.

Full Name
Po'okela - Well, she also responds to Kela (pronounced as Kayla) and Po because mainlanders can't pronounce her name.

Occupation in Group
Hunter/Sentinel

Age
1yr 3mos

Written Personality
Kela is still but a puppy and a very playful one at that. When she's not hunting meals or hooked up to the cart, she's quite fond of chasing her tail, begging for food, and playing or cuddling with anyone who'll pay her any mind. Despite the fact that she's 121lbs of muscle and fur she still seems to think that she's a teacup chihuahua and likes to sit in people's laps. She knows better than to jump on people but sometimes she just can't help it when she's happy. She is very well trained and obedient though and will follow Art's commands to tee, though she will hesitate or simply ignore the commands given by others. The Timber Wolf/Malamute mix doesn't tend to react well when voices begin to raise and hostility fills the air. She becomes hyper-aggressive and is afterwards difficult to calm down. Otherwise, she's very much a lovebug and tends to bounce from person to person for affection. It takes a person about a week or so to get her used to them, but she becomes more open and less likely to attack once Art gets her accustomed to them. She is also frequently used as a Sentinel for her keen senses. She can tell zombies apart from humans and has been trained not to attack but will still let others know when they are around. She does take down strangers who approach the camp though.

Relations to other Characters
Belongs to Art

Who can play this character?
Just me

Full Name: Oakley Durand

Gender: Female

Age: Six years, two months old

Written Personality: Named for the famed sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, Oakley certainly lives up to the fiery spirit of her name-sake. She's loyal to Nathan and follows him willingly around camp as his second shadow. However, she's a mischievous little dog, and her strong-willed, stubborn ways do not help this at all. Already, she's chewed a hole in the passenger seat of Nate's car because he forgot her chew toys. Her relationship with Nate is based more on fear than love. Years ago, when she was a pup, he would scold her quite openly and loudly. She does care for him, of course, but Oakley knows her place and runs with her tail between her legs when she fails her "duties". He uses her mainly to help him hunt, given the Rhodesian Ridgeback's history as a dog that hunts lions. She's been trained as a personal guard dog, too.

Relations to other Characters: Her owner is Nathan Durand, and she's quite impartial to the other members of the group. Most of them mean nothing to her, so she doesn't really pay attention to them.

Who can play this character? Me, though you can borrow her for a bit as long as I'm not using her and you adhere to her personality.
