|| ǪƝƇɆ ŲƤǪƝ Ą ƬĮⱮɆ ||
Earth's introduction progressed as primitive, humble even. Its beginnings were of grass and dirt, trees slowly blossoming to reach the sky. Animals grew to magnanimous lengths and humans, being as ambitious as they were, lived in caves. When man gained a taste for meat, they hunted, forming packs to take down beasts much larger than themselves. Animals evolved, becoming smarter; humans did too. Soon, forests were cleared, houses were built, humans acknowledged one another and realized their differences. They fought over these small discrepancies with wars and armadas, sacrificing their own to gain wealth, power, and privilege over others. When land ran out, they built ships to sail across the tumultuous sea to expand their reaches.

But it was never enough.

Skyscrapers popped up, one after the other. Made of gleaming metal and glass, they spiraled higher than the clouds. Wars were at last settled, debts repaid, humanity began an era of peace. They flourished together, realizing that their arguments were silly, that their spats were fruitless, and so, together, they worked towards advancing themselves as a better society. With no more war, they put their minds together to cure common ailments, eradicating the cold, fixing fevers with simple patches, even making genome sequencing to get rid of the genetic risk of having an imperfect child. It could not detect everything, such as disabilities that could be brought on later in life by accident, injury, or even undetermined factors that could never be controlled, but the world, for the most part, was harmonious.

Where there is free will, there will always be trouble.

What if the body could be trapped at the perfect age? What if one no longer had to worry about their health? What if humans could live in a pristine body that never died? It would disrupt the cycle of life itself and perhaps put the fate of humanity in a terrible imbalance. Highly illegal experimentation, a company called GENOS began asking for volunteers. Those who were at their end stages of life, willing to donate themselves towards research for what they claimed to be a better future. They would pay well, they promised, to any and all who could gather in the belly of their building and subject themselves to the experiments. They told all it was for the betterment of the future, they claimed that they wanted to freeze humanity at it's prime.

They lied.




ImageImageIt was a woman by the name of Edna Grover who discovered that souls beneath the age of 18 were the most pliable. Adults who attempted the transfer perished, their bodies becoming necrotic and crumbling to dust, soul lost for eternity. Needing to use children, but having no legal permit to do so, the operation went underground, using scrupulous means to recruit the less fortunate. One by one they came, a slow trickle until the method became perfected. The turn around was high, people from all over wanted android children they could program for various functions and tasks. Soldiers, maids, clerks, security guards, they were all ran on one program, the brainchild of Dr. Grover.

It was never enough.

Wanting to take the program further, Dr. Grover wanted to detach the memories from the souls, creating a blank slate, usable for just about anything. She saw herself as a deity, creating life, building bodies, constructing art. It was only when Dr. Grover recruited a twin that she had crossed the line, unwittingly stealing the body of the second to turn into one of her pretty dolls.

Also, if I know you to be the type that reserve and submit a character without ever finishing them I will reject your reservation. All characters must be finished after five days!
Face Claims || As you can see I have already chosen these for you. Everything is debatable, if you'd like to change your face claim then please inform me in the OOC. All face claims must be of the anime genre, unfortunately no celebrities or anime video games will be accepted. Persona, Steins Gate, and Danganronpa are an exception to this rule.
Grammar and Spelling || This is an advance RP, meaning I expect you to know the different between throw and through. If you cannot handle that then this is not the RP for you.

Inspiration || This comes from many places, however I would like to thank Scra for the black and white idea. Most of my RP's are very colorful but I liked the mood that this monochrome tone set and I know you might think it looks similar to yours because of this; however I did all the coding myself and if it still looks too similar to yours I will change it.

❝I am the one who ruined me; I did it myself.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Why? Why was this up to her? Callisto bit down on her lip nervously as the two of them went out the door. "I believe in you Io!" Callisto called to her older, but smaller twin. "You can do this!" She watched them jet out, her knees feeling weak, even though they were stronger than ever. "I believe in you too!" Xane called as they left, the door closing behind them. Callisto had five minutes to decide the fate of all androids. If they saved Grover and brought her here, they too, would be fugitives. Her moral compass was guiding her away from that option, insisting that thy stay on a path that could be walked on confident feet and steady legs. No, they had to take Grover down, she had become too big for britches. She was their creator though, she had given Callisto a new body. How could she betray her like that?

What if there was a third option? Callisto paced as she thought about what it might to take to get Grover to agree to it. "We can't take her down, not if we don't want to be brought down on top of her." Callisto said aloud, Xane nodding his head in agreement. His body too, was no longer viable to live in. "There has to be an option that won't put everyone in danger," Metis agreed, standing guard at the door with his gun. He had moved Jace and Black Jack to another room so that their android bodies would be ready for when they returned, if they did return. "I've got it!" Callisto turned towards Metis, surely their five minutes was nearly up?

"What if we can convince Grover to turn herself in on a conditional arrest?" His eyebrows raised. "Do you have something in mind?" She nodded, explaining the plan to Metis, who would relay it all to his Commander. They would arrest Grover under the terms that she could continue running the servers, so long as she cooperated with the military's terms. "A conditional surrender means that we still get to be androids, but she'll have the military operating over her to make sure nothing like this can happen again." That way, they could have a vote of confidence from the citizens of Port Viridi Island.

❝Living the dream, yours and mine, euphoria.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#B21212 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #1485CC

|| Diamond in the Rough|| The Nearly Deads ||




The message came to them just as the two made it above the GENOS Labs, ready to finish the fight once and for all. Callisto's order was to convince Grover to accept a conditional surrender. If she could be put under the military's supervision she'd be able to continue her work - just not to do evil as she did so. "Gotcha." Io knew her sister would be able to think of something. She was the genius after all, that was what the faint echoes of memories told her. She would never regain her memories fully, but sometimes a small hint would float in and out. The real Io was gone forever, but this one would live happy in her place where she might not be able to. "How do we do this?" Firis asked, the area was under careful supervision. Not to mention, people were banging on the fence, trying to break in.

"Obviously." Io giggled. "We do it with a bang." Firis sighed, shaking her head helplessly. "Fine, we'll do it your way, love. Let's get it done." Firis made her hand into a big fist and she punched through the roof with a flying start, landing amid the dust and debris with a roll and a fancy recovery post the roll. Yue felt dizzy after the roll but she returned to her senses. Security bots activated but they were mindless bots, meant to serve a single function. Because they lacked higher level thinking it was child's play to cut through them, Firis took care of it, letting Io save her single railgun shot just in case there was an emergency. She broke through to the final chamber where Grover was working on her code and Hymnos was watching the room where the former reprogrammed androids were being reprocessed.

She put the railgun to Grover's head. "Give it up." Io's voice was harsh, full of threats. "You won't hurt anyone anymore." Hymnos whimpered, knowing that she was unable to help, not again these two androids who were immune to her abilities. "You won't do it, Io." Grover sounded far too calm, too quiet. "Be a good girl and sit down. If you want Callisto to live, you have no choice." She typed something into the holographic keyboard and a camera image showed up of baby Callisto in the tube. "We eliminated all cancerous cell growth from the baby that would have eventually become cancer. It is now cancer immune." Grover said with a half smile. "I can transfer Callisto's mind to the baby and grant her a free life."

Io faltered, biting her lip. Now she really couldn't do it. But... she wasn't going to make the choice. That was the former Io's big mistake. "Callisto, did you catch all that?" Io rang her up, relaying all the info. "Grover bargains for her freedom. I'll let you make the choice." Follow the original plan, or take the deal and let Callisto live a human, healthy life? This was Cali's one chance to choose the life she wanted to lead - it was not for Io to make.

Callisto had caught all of that of course, her heart freezing in her chest. Metis's hand gripped her own. There was hope in his eyes, but if Callisto went down that path, she would be a baby, she would need to relearn everything. It would be no different than dying and being born again. "No," Callisto said softly. "I cannot choose my well being over the dozens of others." Callisto shook her head. What was done, was done; she would never be able to take this decision back, even as her heart cried out to be selfish, to take Grover up on the offer and have the life she never got to experience. To be immune to the cancerous growths riddling her true body. Callisto shook her head, it was too late to have regrets.

"We have an offer for you Grover. A conditional surrender, if you will. You'll be able to continue to operate, but you'll have to do so under the regulations of Port Viridi's military." Metis had been the one to bring up the idea to his Commander, who had relayed it to the higher up's. They all agreed that android labor could be a valuable asset to their military, of course, they didn't yet know what powered the androids. Grover was boxed into a corner; she could give up to the police, hand herself over to the riots, or accept the offer to join her forces with the military. There was no running away, not from this, not from all of these people that still needed her.

"You're an important person Dr. Grover, but you're also a reckless one. There are so many of us that still rely on you and your abilities. Please, don't let us down." Callisto was watching and speaking to her on a holo screen of course, but she could still see the conflict in the Doctor's eyes. Hymnos, standing beside her, looked worriedly around, no doubt fearful that she would be ripped away from her precious androids. "Fine," Grover sighed, removing her glasses. "I don't have many options here." She wiped her lenses on her shirt. "I'll accept the offer, but heed my warning. They're not going to like it when they find out what I've been doing. You might still be shut down." Callisto nodded, accepting the consequences.

"If it comes to that," she said softly, only for Grover's ears. "Please kill my real body."

Callisto made her choice. Io wasn't going to hesitate then. Yes, the gun was a bluff, killing her was never going to be a solution to this problem. "Are you sure, Cali?" Io didn't mind if they decided to take the protect Grover route in this final mission. But Callisto wasn't going to budge. "Your sister really needs to learn how to be selfish." Firis said, slightly amused. "Grover, there isn't much time. Look, they're going to get through your defences soon, and your android army isn't ready to fight." There wasn't going to be a big battle, this was going to end here and now. Either be killed by the mob, tried and locked away by the police, or taken away under the military's hands. Metis has the authority. "I see. So this is the way it is, then?"

"If you can promise Hymnos will be protected, then I surrender." But how could they possibly keep Hymnos safe? She was the server itself, connected to all the cables, connected to the supercomputers to keep her running. She even tapped in directly to the power grid of Port Viridi Island itself, it was the only way to keep her functioning given how much power she needed in order to do anything. "Who is Hymnos, anyways? What human was important enough to become the administrator unit?" It had to be one that held a lot of value to Dr. Grover. "My name is Hymnos." Hymnos replied with a soft smile. "My human name is Eliza Grover." Firis quickly scanned her database and memories for the name. "Ah." Firis said quietly. "You're the girl who was run over by a Hovercar and never woke up." She was Grover's own twin sister who never got to live to be an adult.

"I can't be moved, sister." Hymnos told Dr. Grover regretfully. Because of what she was, she had to stay here to the mercy of whoever found her first. "Take her into military custody, please." That was as much permission was Io needed. Grover gave her sister a sad look but knew it was fruitless. "Thank you for letting me live again. Goodbye!" Firis pulled Grover to her and Io activated the Stealth Field again. "Metis, we're taking her back." Io muttered, once again taking to the air. For now it seemed Io was going to have to remain fun-sized, wasn't she?

Once Grover finished last minute preparations they returned to Metis's house.

❝I am the one who ruined me; I did it myself.❞

ɗιαƖσgυє cσƖσя:#F54D70 ♙ тнσυgнт cσƖσя #FF7256

|| Dearly Beloved || Utada Hikaru ||




Grover was deposited into the arms of the Port Viridi Military. Soon after, Jace awoke from her sleep, lumbering into the living room. "What did I miss?" She grumbled, Callisto tearing up and running into her arms. "Jace! Thank goodness!" Jace welcomed the kisses, albeit a bit confused. Black Jack did not wake up, his hardware had been damaged and he jerked awake inside of the tank, involuntarily returning to his own body. The military took control of GENOS labs, including Hymnos, who was left in place, the entire area simply swept up, the children who had been trapped in servile positions freed. Grover wasn't locked behind bars, but she wasn't free to do as she pleased either. It made national news when she signed a contract to surrender her remaining androids to the military.

"You can wake them all up, except this one." He stood guard in front of the tank with Callisto. "Why Private? What's in there?" The Commander demanded. "My sister," Metis replied, back rigid. "She has cancer sir, if you take her out of stasis, she won't survive the night." Callisto stood by, watching, as her body was exempt. Jace too, conscientiously objected from returning to her human body. The androids that no longer had humans to call home to were recruited for various services. They found the parts to repair Io as well, restoring her to her former, larger, glory. "Glad to see you're back to your true height." Callisto giggled. Minnie and Dane's bodies had been taken for research, for the time being, they would be allowed to retain their android forms. It was unfair, but the doctors had hope they could fix them.

"Cali," Jace wrapped an arm around her waist, planting a kiss on her temple. "Stop trying to run away," Jace joked. With the sheep free from Azariah Reiss, the children who were abandoned were placed in a school to teach them skills so that they could become valuable members of society. Jarvis was returned to his human body, he was happy at first, but soon opted to return to his new android unit, having found out he had no family to speak of. Callisto's family, unfortunately, was told her location and where she was presently. Her parents appeared out of the blue, to see her human body, unable to recognize their android daughter. She preferred it that way, she realized, as Metis explained to them that she would not wake up.

Grover had hope of course, that they could transfer Callisto into the infant clone's body, but for the time being, it would remain in stasis until her current human body was no longer viable. Callisto was allowed to return to her job as an idol, once the kinks were worked out and androids were given a bit more rights, now that they knew they were humans. She had a salary, Jace had one as well, the two living together. Black Jack, well, with his interfacing broken, was happier as a human then he ever was an android. Callisto saw Io and Firis often, they were neighbors of course, they lived in a high rise in the center of the city with a view of the ocean.

"I'll never get tired of this life," Callisto said with a sigh, glancing at her reflection in the mirror. "Well, you'd better. You're on in five minutes," Jace replied, nudging her in the side as Callisto laughed. Her first concert as a free android, it was exhilarating! "One year ago, I never would have thought any of this could be real. That I could be here, performing for so many people." Io and Firis were given tickets to come, but whether they had actually shown up was another thing. The two were busy with each other these days, they were madly in love after all.

"Cali, it's time!" Callisto nodded and pushed out of her seat, Jace giving her a good luck kiss on the lips. "You're gonna do great out there, I just know it." She said, giving her one last peck on the nose. Callisto nodded, "Yeah!" She bound out between the curtains, excited to perform in her new body.

"Hi everyone, I'm Cali! Thanks for coming, let's get started!"

Re: The Eden Project

That moment when you realize your character is 23 and everyone else is just a baby nugget O_O


Re: The Eden Project

    I hope you don't mind that I gave the meeting place a room number, I just needed a place where I could put him.


Re: The Eden Project

I think that's fine. As soon as you're done we can start.


Re: The Eden Project

I think I will manage, and in that case I think I would like to properly reserve the character!

Though, as for the type of demon I was thinking along the lines of a ‘Dybbuk’ demon? As in, they could possess people and other creep stuff in that sense, if that is allowed?
