Angel....or Mutant?

Angel....or Mutant?

0 INK

(Open now!) You're a mutant with wings and powers. And now you are on the run. People want you to experiment on and sell for money. You want to live. In the midst of all this, a strange plan comes up that could threaten the existence of humanity...

2,179 readers have visited Angel....or Mutant? since Ichigo15 created it.

Introduction

Angel….or Mutant?

I made the mistake of not making this clear earlier. LITERATE PLAYERS. No one liners!

(Since I can't seem to change it, and someone has already brought it up, this rp is based of the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. Yes, I made a lame mistake when I filled out the form for a new RP. http://www.max-dan-wiz.com/page/homepage-1 Hope this makes up for it.)


You’re eyes blink open greeted by the unnaturally bright lights of the medical room. Once again, you’re strapped to that hard metallic, operating table, the name for which you have no idea. The Master brazenly runs his fingers over your wings. They’re splayed out behind you, hanging off the table like limp dismembered limbs. He plucks one feather, examines it, and hides it away from your point of view. You sigh, a long, disheartened sound. The young female Master at the end of the table looks surprised, as if to say, It has a voice?. Must be a new intern or something.

When the examination is over they throw you back in the cage, where you’re surrounded by the Vampires, who snarl and bite at you as if they have no other intelligible functions. By far the worse mutants in the entire Ward. That night as you try to sleep in your too-cramped cage, you are poked by sharp claws, and sticks that send electricity coursing through your body. You twist and turn, but something is always within reach of hurting you. Finally, everything goes silent.


You gasp awake, jolting up from the cold hard ground. It was just a dream. But a very vivid, very accurate dream. It’s only been days since you’ve escaped the school. You’re alone now, but hopefully things will take a turn for the better. If only you could find others like yourself. Then, at least, you’d have backup. If only.

Background

You are a mutant. Whether you like it or not, you’ve been cursed with unnatural powers. Scientists have messed with your genes, turned you into something you weren’t supposed to be, and experimented and tested you countless times.

And now, you are on the run.

You’ve escaped from the clutches of the Ward, but now face the harsh reality of things; they will find you. And unless you don’t find others like yourself, other mutants to work with, to survive with, you’re screwed.

What will you do?

Enemies and Terms you need to know.

The Vampires – The Ward’s latest form of mutant slaves. They’re named, not because they suck blood, but because of the two large Bat wings that splay from their backs. They’re speed is almost on par with that of the bird kids, and besides wings, they have the ability to breath under water. Coupled with an incomprehensible amount of strength and stamina, these are mean bird-kid hunting machines. However, this is where their most advanced mutations end. The Vampires are simply used for hunting, and the School has tight control over them, making sure to give them no extra mutations. Most of them are intelligent, but often seem dunce due to their temperamental and savage nature.

The Masters – Scientist who compose the Ward. They’re basically a big group of brains who make sure to keep out of the government radar. They’re major goal is to produce an army of bird-kid mutants to serve under them. Masters aren’t the best people in the world, and give Science a bad name. Bird-kid rule number one: Never trust a Master.

The Ward – A name for the group of labs who create the mutants. They’re all over the United States and have secret facilities everywhere. Not to mention the fact that they have even more hidden labs in certain countries. However they don’t generally grow the Avian Human hybrids in those labs. Characters can come from different labs of different states.

Biology - Ick Science…

Bird Kid Biology
Avian Homo Sapiens are generally humanized birds. The similarities they have to birds have all come into being in order to adjust their body to flight. The kids bones are filled with little marrow, extremely lightweight, but necessary in order to take flight. Their lungs, unlike normal human lungs, have unidirectional flow. This basically means that the kids have a higher amount of oxygen flowing through them than normal humans do in order to keep their muscle cells well oxygenized and capable of continued flight without fatigue. Their sensitive lungs also mean that extremely dusty or polluted air can cause uncomfortable bouts of coughing. When it comes to eye site, birds are the kings and queens of distance. However, with the possible exception of Owls, most birds have poor night vision. This is the same case with the children, who can see far, but can only see about as brightly as normal human vision at night. Which is very dull. The children are born with a heavy set of chest muscles, which support and help the wings muscles obtain flight. The children also have excellent hearing, and depend on their hearing at night when they cannot see well.

Vampire Biology
Vampires are, similarly to the bird kids, the equivalent of a humanized bats. The main difference between Vamps and Bird Kids is that bats are mammals, whereas birds are a class of their own, more closely related to lizards. Vampires, like birds have light bones. However, it is not bone marrow they lack. Rather, their bones, while filled with marrow, are thin and small, and just as breakable as those of the bird kids, leaving them evenly matched. Vampires have stronger back muscles, which, like the kids heavy chest muscles, support their wings muscles. Vampire bat wings, have a very thin membrane, and being very sensitive, allow for more accurate flight than the kids muscles, making them quiet apt head on attacker, and enabling them to maneuver tight places in attempts to go after the kids. Their weak chest however, is a point of attack for the children. The Vamps also sport poor eyesight, having eyes only about as good as a normal humans, and therefore rely on their excellent hearing to help them tracks the kids, that is, when the kids are out of sight. The Vamps have a form of echolocation where they can emit low frequency noises, which bounce back to them, and give them a fairly accurate picture of the surrounding area.

Toggle Rules

Things you need to know. (Some rules for the RP)

  1. All characters should have wings (bird like wings), and almost invisible gills on their neck.
  2. Besides wings and gills, only three other mutant ‘powers’ are allowed. (I may allow more later.)
  3. No mind-control, or future-telling. Mind reading is allowed, but it has to have some kind of limit.
  4. Characters should start the rp as though they’ve just escaped from the underground school.
  5. Two character per person. Characters can be from 6 – 15 years old. (I will break this rule, as I am introducing two characters who are semi-important to the kids. They’ll serve as kind of leaders, as well as an example of how to live a ‘normal’ life as mutant.)
  6. Nothing extremely sexual or violent.

"Eins, we have to get moving," I snapped, in no mood to coddle her. Yeah, something was definitely wrong with her arm, but now was so not the time to worry about it. She wasn't dead, she wasn't bleeding, and she could walk. That was good enough for me. The sympathy would have to wait until we weren't about to be killed or captured by the Ward.

"We need to go back to Marceline," I said, really having no idea whether that was true or not. Was now a good time or bad time to be separated? I'm just not good at these decisions in the heat of the moment. I checked to make sure she was following and I headed back through the semi-crowded hall, shoving people out of the way and occasionally throwing a punch if someone tried to stop me. The hall seemed to clear in front of me and I soon found out why.

A nurse was holding a gun on a boy who looked remarkably like Marceline, and who I just instantly assumed was related to her. Marceline herself was a short distance away and seemed to be hurt. The sight filled me with as much panicky fear and anger as the the sight of the gun did.

Martial arts is kind of useless when a gun is in your face. You don't need to touch someone to hurt them with a gun. In the movies I'd watched, the hero used special martial arts to dodge bullets. The Ward had used guns on mutants with even greater abilities and had never failed to kill them.

As if to prove me right, the nurse pulled the trigger. The sound was deafening in the hall and I flinched, expecting to see blood gushing everywhere or to feel the unexpected pain of a bullet wound myself.

But since Marceline's brother was still in one piece and no one else (including me) was lying on the floor in a pool of blood, she must have missed. He had to have been lucky to avoid that at such close range.

I was wondering what I could do to take her down when another kid -probably a mutant- began to sneak up on her. I stared... I couldn't help it. Easy way to ruin someone's ambush, by staring at them while they sneak up on someone. Luckily my reaction didn't seem to ruin it; he sailed through the air and tackled the woman hard. I couldn't help but be impressed as he slammed her head into the ground repeatedly. I was even more impressed when she kept fighting. Vicious.

He climbed off of her when she stopped moving and apologized for taking so long.

"No problem. Not like we're facing a life or death situation or anything," I said sarcastically, but I half smirked at him to show that I didn't mean it. "Can we leave now?"

A couple of the nurses I'd taken down were closing in on us again, though now they were being slow about it, as if approaching dangerous wild animals. Which I guess is a good description. Oh, and they were pulling out guns too. Copy cats. My smirk disappeared in an instant and I tensed up again. I so did not want to get shot today.

"Now what?" I asked seriously, all traces of sarcasm gone. Not like we could rush them and they definitely weren't close enough for me to do anything. I was useless.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I'm still here and happy to roleplay if the roleplay will continue. I may just quit that KH Rp, by the way. Just not enough people interested.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Okay guys I'm so sorry I disappeared on you all. My computer is still broken, and life's pretty full to the brim what with college and so I don't have lots of time between freedom with my friends, college forms, and whatever else gets thrown in there. The remaining of October and the beginning of November are going to be very hectic for me, so I'm still on a tough schedule.

I just need to know who's still on board and if I should continue the rp or not. I'll try to get a post off of this computer, but it isn't mine, so I can't ensure anything.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Thanks for letting us known Ashed, I was kind of wondering about it.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Okay so I'm not apart of this RP, but I've spoken with Ichigo and she told me to tell you guys the reason she hasn't posted in a while is, first because she'll be going to college next year and she has a lot of college-related things to take care of, second, she's sick right now, and third, her computer is having issues right now.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Are we dead then?

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Ok, I don't have internet acess and won't have it for god knows how long. Sorry ;A;
So, I think it would be best if you guys went on without me ^_^ actually I would perfer if you did

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

You can post but after that we're just waiting for _NotTheNormalOne_ and that's it, since I think besides me both Tsuk and TheFlag have already posted.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Okay, so now that we're all coming together, I'm a little bit confused. Who should I wait on before I post again?

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

@ Abridged

I'm all for the originality of the character that you're offering (especially since MR rp's tend to have a repetition of blind characters rather than anything else) but I'm not sure exactly how you want to go about the whole muteness thing. You have to remember that mute people are, generally, deaf or traumatized people.I think, if I remember correctly (someone can fact check me on it) it can also occur from brain damage to a certain area of said brain. I think if you're going with the idea that she just won't know how talk, she should eventually, as the rp progresses learn language. Otherwise, having said scientist fiddle with her brain, as an alternate option, seems nice too. It's up to you, since those are just suggestions, but if you keep with this character I really like the image projection powers. Perhaps those powers could even serve as the catalyst as to why she doesn't speak.

As for not being able to post; I apologize to everyone (and for holding up your rp too, Abridged). I have drafts of all the posts I need for my rps, so the only thing I have to do now is brush them up and send them in.

EDIT: BTW. Feel free to send her in when you're ready. While I don't think we'd be able to incorporate her in the plot immediately, it would do good if you got up a small introductory post describing her location etc. rather than us randomly or abruptly running into her.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I've been thinking about my second character, the one I said I was going to make a while ago. I really want to try something that I think would be interesting, but first I want to make sure people are okay with it.

My character is going to be mute. I really want to try a character who can't communicate verbally, because it'd be an intriguing angle in the RP.

I don't know yet if it will be a physical issue, if she (probably she) just won't know language, or will just for some reason refuse to talk, I haven't decided. She will definitely understand language when she hears it, she'll just be unable to reciprocate. I do want there to be an alternate method for her to communicate though, obviously sign language would be difficult for the bird kids to learn.

I was thinking maybe she has the mental ability to send thoughts(not words, obviously she will be having difficulty with those) but maybe in like terms of images or "video" if that makes any sense. Just like we can remember and "imagine" a video we watched, she would be able to send that to someone. It's just a suggestion, but I felt like Tsuk might have an objection since her character can send thoughts.

If you do have an objection Tsuk, please let me know. It's the first thing I came up with, but I'm thinking of other things. A second option would be her having an ability to communicate through touch, with a side ability of psychometry. Basically the ability to experience an object's past and present, or sense events that happened around or directly with the object. To be honest, I really like the touch idea. But I want suggestions if anyone is willing to give them. And also, ichigo, if you think I should wait to add my character to the roleplay, that's fine. Things are kind of weird right now and I'm not sure how I'm going to throw her in.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Sorry for the absence guys. College/senior stuff is beginning to take it's toll.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I posted and I am a little bit worried about Marcus's abilities coming off as godmoddy. IF anything in my post seems too unrealistic or godmoddy please let me know, I don't mind changing it.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

So sorry. X.X I've been really busy lately. Getting a post up now.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I suppose I can post before Tsuk, and if we dont hear from her soon, skip her.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

It's become a bit...quiet...

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I made a separate post for Euro and, as of now, Aqua.

I'll have Marce and Alice in later.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Well, I have to go to work guys! I'll be back probably in about seven or eight hours and I'll post then. :)

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Whilst I wait for replies, I shall do some catching up with Euro and Solo.

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

I removed some inactive characters. I'm going to be posting in the forums in search of some literate players (like two).

Re: Angel....or Mutant?

Wow, I like my post this time. It came out so smoothly. Hopefully this keeps happening. xP
