The Story of Your Life


“Where goes the line between man and monster, you ask? Well… that is a hard question to answer. It all depends on your own thoughts and feelings about the subject, does it not? After all, what we call ‘monsters’ is just a way we perceive a handful of people, no? It is nothing more than a term… right? I say, let me tell you a story, stranger. Oh, don’t worry. It’s a fun one! With tons of blood, gore and death… I can assure, you shall find it quite interesting. It is the story about you.”

It all started in the year of 1993, when the first child with 'extraordinary abilities' was born. To be more exact, he was a pyrokenetic, which was quickly discovered as he just a few hours after his birth had set a whole hospital on fire. Naturally, the government did not wish news about people with these sorts of abilities to leak out to the public, so they quickly made an agreement with the parents of the child. He was taken away to be raised in a 'safe' environment'. However, little did they know that many, many more children with this kind of 'special condition' were to follow. Some parents agreed on having their children taken away, some were taken by force. What matters is that the government took every child with special abilities into their custody, all this behind the backs of the ordinary American population. No, the whole world, to be more precise.

At a very young age these children were sent away to a secret training camp of the organization Dragonfly, some were still even infants at the point. Yes, for as long as you can remember Dragonfly has been your home, your everything. Not only did they teach you how to handle your abilities, not only did they train you to become an agent... but they are also your life, your family... don't you agree? You love them. Together with the other dragonflies you have had your fair share of hardships, but it is also here you experienced things such as love and friendship for the first time. Here you know you are safe and accepted for who you are. After all, your whole life you have been warned about the dangers of the world outside and how the people would treat you if they ever found out. So you stayed with the organization without question, you know you are a chess piece to be moved, a pawn in their game to make the world a better place. You are the 'hunting dog' if you so like and you know that what you do is for the best, that what you sacrifice will not be in vain. Dragonfly is and has always been your world.

Depending on your special ability and natural skills, you were trained in a certain area of expertise. Someone with the camouflaging ability, for example, would most likely focus on an area in the spying direction, while someone with the ability of pyrokenesis would be trained in a more offensive area. This is with the plan in mind that you will eventually be assigned to a team where your area of expertise is required. This manner of assigning Dragonfly teams drives from the mechanics of the SWAT system. Naturally you were also thought in ever subject a normal child would be educated in at a normal school.

On your fifteenth birthday there was a dragonfly tattooed onto your shoulder blade. This meant you had officially completed your training at the camp and you were finally ready to face the outside world. After graduating at the end of the year, that is. During the graduation ceremony you were told which team you would be assigned to and where in the world you would be stationed... and two months after that... well... that is where we are now.

The newly 'hatched' dragonflies are sent to whatever team where they are required, usually replacing a team member that has...previously perished. Thus, the teams consist of both experienced as well as inexperienced members. The disappearance of agents is not that unusual and considering the fact that they are in a dangers line of work consisting of espionage and assassination. At the same time these teams pose as families and alongside their secret agent life, live relatively normal life's. Just like normal humans they go to school and work for a living. They seem totally normal. At first glance... no one could never guess that you are in fact a deathly weapon, a danger beyond imagination... and it better remain a secret.

"Okay, I suppose there wasn't that much blood, gore and death... but believe me. There will be. Do not underestimate your task as a Dragonfly... yes, indeed... this is where your true story begins...

Although it might also be the end..."

Do make sure they fit their role, though.

Toggle Rules

  • All rules of the site apply.
  • If there is something you need clarified or you are wondering about, please don't hesitate to ask.
  • To apply for this RP you must reserve the spot you wish to make a character for. Please do this either through PM or the OOC forum. While reserving your role, I would like you to include what kind of power(s) you are intending for him/her to have, so that we can talk it over first.
  • Reservations last a week. Please try to get at least a WIP up within the deadline.
  • Stay active. Try to post at least once a weak, if not more. If you can't post for a longer period of time, please contact me and tell me so. If you do not and stay inactive for more than a month, your character will be replaced or erased.
  • Godmodding and mary/gary suing/stuing is under any circumstances not permitted.
  • I want a relatively even number of male and female characters. It doesn't need to be precise but one guy and the rest females isn't very fun, I think we all can agree on that.
  • Your mutant characters may have up to two special abilities. However, this only applies when your character has two weaker sorts of abilities. If you want it to have one strong, then it is only one.
  • I want a post length of be a minimum of a two hundred words. It is not hard to make posts that long, especially not if your partner writs long posts as well. Sometimes we all however have writers’ blocks, which is understandable and can excuse shorter posts… though not always. For some dialogs the same thing applies; but still; only if it fits.
  • Decent posts, with proper grammar and spelling are another must. We all make mistakes and errors sometime; that is fine. But it is not an excuse all the time whatsoever.
  • Only I can FF time more than 24 hours. However, within that limit you may move time as required as long as those you RP with agree it. Please fast forward (fade to black) during intimate moments.
  • Drama in the RPG is more than welcome. However, drama outside the RPG is a big no-no!
  • There is a main plot in this RP and a goal as to where it is supposed to lead. However, that is not to say that there is no freedom to create more subplots or even have a say in what is going to happen yourself.
  • Most important of all, though... have fun and use your imagination!

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Looking forward to start this RP :D

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Heehee, thanks! ^^ Yes, happy new year, everyone! Even if I'm three days late. >.<

Anyway, latest on Monday I should be able to get my character's done. :3 Then we can start, I believe... and I should be able to be online more regularly, hopefully.

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

No need to rush indeed, just wanted to know if you had already planned something. Everybody take your time and do what you can to make some characters you will enjoy RP'ing as.

I hope you are all ready for some drama... I hope you are all ready for some gore... This roleplay can take us anywhere as long as we give it time >:]

Enjoy the Christmas holidays and stress out while you can ;)

Merry Christmas and a happy new year from here too :D

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

You don't have to rush~

It's cool with me. I am also currently busy with stuff so I hurried to finish the history. That's why I apologize it's a bit short and vague <-<

ANYWAY.
MERRY XMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Nah. Hope I don't get too fat with so many things to eat...

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

I am so sorry, guys. I know I said we would start this weekend, but I have been far business now before Christmas than I imagined. I promise we will start once the whole Christmas stress is over. There just has been so much to do; shopping, dentist, cleaning, cooking, etc. I haven't had any time for this at all. >.< After tomorrow or the day after that, however, I am a hundred percent sure there will be more time for everything! Just bare with me! We should be able to start now sometime during this week. ^^

You people know who you are so behave and change the things that are breaking the rules, I have my eyes on your characters.

So right now I don't know how this will end. But hopefully we can begin sometime this week.


Thanks for informing us :D

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

@blackwolt We talked about it today and this weekend is what we agreed on, that gives the people who's not done with their characters some time too finish them

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

@HadenRivers- Welcome to the family Haden :)

I have pretty much finished my character. I might change a couple of things however, but they shouldn't have any effects on the character really. I'll tell if I make any major changes.

@Gladis/Lyysa- When are you thinking about starting this RP?

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Okay! I shall reserve the spot for you! ^^

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Hello I would like to reserve the hacker/Strategist
His power would be Molecular Manipulation, which allows the user to manipulate electricity on various scales, even to the molecular level. The technique can work with all possible ranges. As long as an object is a conductor of electricity, the technique can be passed through it, making indirect attacks possible.

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Okay, thank you for informing me. ^^

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

I've decided, after some internal debate, that this may not be the game for me after all and am therefore relinquishing my reservation for the hacker character. I apologize for the inconvenience but I'm sure you'll agree that it's better to decide this now than a week after your story has begun. I wish you luck with the game and may even lurk to see what I'm missing. :)

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Ignore this, I figured it out =)

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Well, the point of humans being there is for them to meet and interact with the Hunter household. This could be through either school, work or other circumstances. As they get more involved with the mutants and their life, eventually ending up with being dragged into their world... well, let us say that it would cause more than just a little complications for everyone. Therefor, although the main focus is on the Hunter household, the humans surrounding them are just as important to further the plot. :3

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

So I stumbled on this and things seem interesting, but quick question (since there's nothing left besides being a human, whelp): what role would a normal person have in the plot/this RP? Just to know what I'd be in for before I spontaneously decide to jump in c:

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

That's also how I understood it, but I just had to find out ;)

When I talked to her, she described it as your first suggestion "Alex Hunter", so my guess is that's what she meant

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

No problem at all. Glad I could help :D (though, there goes the idea of my character living in a box q.q)

Another question, the alias of your character is just like the name that the outside knows right? (like Alex Hunter) Or is it like a codename for our character? (like Red Hunter)

Re: Dragonfly: The Hunters

Oooh! Forgive me. >.< Yes, there is supposed to be a personality description. I just forgot it when doing the form. I will however add it in now. Thank you for notifying me.

As for how the characters live, well... all mutants of the 'Hunter' family live together in one big house. This is not their choice but what they were given when assigned to the 'Hunter' team. The house is big and fancy, somewhat like a small mansion, if you so like. Precisely this family is stationed in the town of Robertsford. :3
