Kai C. Gable

The Inferno

0 · 323 views · located in United States

a character in “Game of the Gods”, as played by Torrentwolf



Name: Kai

Age: 20

Gender: Male

Title: The Inferno

Sexuality: Heterosexual

Birthplace: California

Faceclaim: Jack Falahee

Appearance: Kai is a rather muscular man, but not overly bulked. He stands at six feet tall even with his friend Sephtis. Kai’s skin is a tan which is darker in areas from sun exposure. His hair is slicked back smoothly which is complemented with the closely shaved stubble. His eyes are a dark brown almost black color but not surprisingly they tend to turn a hot red when he’s angry.

Kai likes to wear brown cargo pants with a black long sleeved shirt and brown bomber jacket with sneakers. When Kai enters combat he typically drapes himself in fire in the form of martial arts robes.

Personality: Kai is a rather suave man with a charming personality to match. He is no James Bond but he does have a personality people can take a liking to. When meeting a new person he does so with a warm smile and warm and firm handshake or kiss to the hand if the person is a female. Kai has a cocky personality in most situations but he is not arrogant or overbearing with it. But though he can be a charming and warm person Kai has some insecurities which he hides beneath these layers such as the fear of hurting innocents or those he cares about.

Kai has an appreciative eye for women and never misses an opportunity to flirt when the moment may arise. However Kai remains a gentleman and never pushes his flirting beyond a woman is comfortable with and will only playfully flirt if a woman is not interested.

Kai is a very passionate and dedicated person to his goals and desires. If he desires something very little can stop him from getting what he wants be it something materialistic or someone who has caught his eye.

Thanks to Sephtis, Kai has a good control of his emotions. However when he loses control Kai has quite a temper that matches his fiery personality. Kai has been down many roads with his temper and even with the control Sephtis gave him he is still a frightening person when he loses his composure, second only to one other person he knows.

Call: “Bring the Heat!”

Gift: -Sacred Fire: Kai was given a lantern with a pure white flame that never burns out so long as the flames remain within the lantern. While he can generate his own fire Kai can use the flames in combat for more intensive flame attacks though this is not their typical use. When used to light a fire upon a pyre properly prepared Kai can use the Sacred Fire to have much clearer fire readings than with normal fire.

Card Image: A silhouette of a man performing several martial arts movesets while flames follow his movements.

Family archive?: No, but shared one with Sephtis.

Quote: “You called down the thunder, now deal with it!”

Skills: Kai has more than just his fire abilities to bring to the table. For one Kai has trained in a few martial arts and is skilled most notable in Northern Shaolin style of kung fu and the Tiger style arts. Kai has learned to incorporate his fire skills into his martial arts making him more deadly in a fight. Kai’s power comes from his aggressive skills and strong body which allow him to deliver deadly blows on his target. This does not mean Kai lacks in speed or skill, as he is capable of performing very advanced techniques and moving fast enough to be a threat. But his true power is focused in his ability to hit hard and take hits without faltering.

Kai is a skilled auto mechanic and can diagnose and fix most problems with vehicles. He also knows how to break into any vehicle regardless of it’s security systems. Kai is also very fluent in speaking spanish.

Abilities: Since he was born Kai’s skills with fire have slowly been growing, culminating in him being an expert in fire manipulation. Kai can manipulate fire into many forms from concentrated blasts and balls of fire to fire like constructs such as daggers and arrows. Of the techniques Kai has shown Kai can create devastating firestorms, generate napalm fire and create fire of varying colors. Fire does not hurt Kai which means any attempts to use fire to hurt him are useless. Kai can also engulf his entire body in flames like a form of armor, affording him protection against unarmed physical attacks.

Kai has shown with enough heat he can melt solid objects into pure lava which he can control the flow of with ease. He has theorized with enough heat in the right location he could heat enough material into lava to create a lava geyser or maybe a Volcano but due to the dangers it presented before the apocalypse Kai has never explored this theory.

One skill Kai has which is of great use when he can use it is the ability to conduct fire readings. Using this Kai can see images and brief moments of the future through the flames. Via normal flames these images are vague and moments very brief, but when using sacred fire these images are much clearer and visions a little longer.

Likes: Women, fire, spicy foods, martial arts, sparring, his car, music by Usher, Sephtis, pizza, dawn,

Dislikes: Arrogant people, People damaging his car, losing control, not knowing things, sour foods, losing his lantern, noise when trying to sleep, snakes, the cold

Weakness: Kai’s power is focused in fire and he draws power from the heat around him. If for some reason the air is moist or cold his fire will be weakened or nullified depending on the intensity of the source. This also means any water can be used directly to nullify or extinguish his flames.

Kai may be more in control of himself but when roused his temper can get the best of him and control him rather than he control it.

History: Kai was a unique case among those chosen for these games. He wasn’t born into a wealthy family, but nor was he born into poverty. For the Gable family they had their share of contestants in the game of the gods but few had ever returned to tell the tale of the games. As such over several generations all of their knowledge of the games were relegated to nothing more than a story. For Kai he was enthralled with the stories and imagined himself being one of chosen in the games. So when Kai’s powers manifested he was as much of a danger to himself as to everyone around him. It took a long time with many accidents and injuries before Kai had enough control over his powers to live a somewhat normal life. Kai’s unusual powers now prompted his family to reevaluate what they knew as stories in hopes to prepare Kai for the future. Seeing his fantasy become a reality Kai devoted himself to preparing for the inevitable games by mastering his powers and becoming more skilled in the martial arts he had taken as a result of the stories he heard from his grandfather.

Somehow Kai managed to live a normal life, going to school, making friends, going out on dates and more. Then one day Kai encountered another like him, a boy named Sephtis Reaver. The two saw each other’s card images but strangely enough the two didn’t feel any reason to be hostile. In fact despite their difference the two took to each other as they felt like kindred spirits swept up in events they had no control over. Kai and Sephtis became fast friends and knowing they would both have to fight each other one day the two made a deal. They would train together until the day the games began and then work together to defeat the other contestants until only they remained.

With the deal made the two worked hard to train and help each other improve their skill sets. Kai taught Sephtis some arts outside of the training regiment and how to better interact with others. While Sephtis taught Kai how to better reign in his fierce temper at the time and gave him access to his family archive. Although during one training day Kai accidentally lost control of a flame strike which set fire to the Reaver archive, causing them to lose much precious knowledge. Aside from their training Kai and Sephtis had normal lives as could be for them, which included Kai having a long term girlfriend and becoming getting a job as a mechanic. But then it happened, it started with a random case, then an epidemic, then suddenly the apocalypse was upon them. In the chaos Kai lost his father and sister to the zombies while Sephtis lost his mother and grandfather. During this time Kai had to reveal his true nature and history to his girlfriend Camila, shocking her to the very core.

Both Kai and Sephtis managed to get their friends and family to an evacuation location but they knew they had to stay behind. Camila pleaded with Kai to forget the game and leave with them but it was no use, the rubicon had been passed the day he was born. In those final moments she handed him the promise ring he gave her, leaving their relationship in question. For days afterwards Kai and Sephtis remained in San Francisco getting used to this new world. It was only a few days in when they felt a presence calling, beckoning them to come together. Kai and Sephtis knew this was probably the true start of the game or possibly a trap. But the two had little to fear in this game and so loading up Kai’s Pontiac Firebird Trans Am the two set out to join battle with their foes.

So begins...

Kai Gable & Sephatis Reaver


“Go faster go faster!” He all but yelled. The man behind the wheel was pushing the Pontiac Firebird to speeds that would have gotten the attention of half the state’s police. But there were no police and no law for that matter. Just him, his friend and the cars of crazed raiders chasing them, “There’s three of them left.” He friend said in a calm tone. “Yeah I noticed, any ideas on how to get rid of them?” He asked. His friend remained silent as he nonchalantly looked back at their pursuers and then straight ahead, “I would recommend you go faster.” The man gave his friend a sour look, “Gee, you think?!” He sarcastically said. “Sarcasm doesn’t suit you Kai.” His friend calmly said. Kai was about to retort when a loud bang reached his ears and something zipped past his open window, “Hell’s bells! I thought they ran out of ammo three miles back!” Kai said. “Clearly they were holding out on us.” His friend said unconcerned. Kai weaved his Firebird left to right as he tried to avoid the bullets which was made much harder as they entered yet another deserted town. A bullet suddenly hit the right mirror of the Firebird, shattering it and putting a hole in it, “OK, now they die.” Kai growled as he jerked the FIrebird right and pulled down a street to the deserted town square.

Not far behind them the raids turned down the same street in hot pursuit. When they pulled into the square they found their quarry’s car sitting in the middle of the street. The three cars surrounded the target and eleven men filed out with guns drawn upon the firebird. “Got you now boys!” One of the men called out as a few of them approached the car, “Looks like that fine car of yours is mine now.” The leader of the group said. “Yours?! We lost three of our cars and five guys chasing these boys! If anything this car belongs to the group!” One man protested. The leader was about to argue when one of the guys called out, “Oi! There's no one in the car.” One of the guys said. “Well then it just makes taking the car that much easier. Though those boys will make good labor for the fields, so find them! And get that car running now!” The leader yelled. The men started spreading out as the three men moved to open the car. One tried opening the driver side door and found it locked. As he raised his rifle to smash the window a voice rang out, “Don’t you dare break that window!”

Every one of the raiders looked around trying to find the source of the voice but could not pinpoint the location. “Don’t want us to break the window? Then come on out and give us the keys boy!” He said. “What do you think Sephetis? Think I should give them what they want?” The voice called out. “I think you know my answer Kai.” Sephetis’ calm and eerie voice rang out. “These men are a representation of the the scum of our world, greedy, malicious. They are not pure evil, but they have secured their place in it’s lower echelons.” The leader grit his teeth as he looked around trying to locate them, “Tough talk coming from two little boys who hide rather than face us like men!” He yelled back, clearly agitated. “So says the man who preys on the weak.” A voice said behind the leader. He whirled around and found one of the boys standing behind him, draped in a black cloak with it’s hood up. He could not see the boy’s entire face save for his lower half, “What do you know boy? In the real world survival of the fittest is the prime rule and survival is the goal of strongest.” He said as he pointed his gun at the boy.

“Your logic is flawed, the goal of all life is death. And the Mauve Knell of Midnight tolls for you.” The boy raised his head a bit so one eye looked at him, “Tell me. Do you feel dead? You will be.” The boy suddenly lept down and rolled under the fire of the leader before a ball of fire knocked the gun out of his hand. The leader was bewildered by the sudden fire attack before he realized the boy in front of him had pulled a long double bladed scythe from nowhere and was swinging it at him. He only had only a split second to realize the boys had set them up before the scythe sent him to be judged in the next life.

The men watched astonished as their leader was cut down so effortlessly and by a boy with a weapon that should have been impracticable to swing around as he was doing now. Their astonishment lasted only a moment as they raised their guns to fire at the boy, “Those aren’t going to do you guys any good.” The two turned around to see the other boy leaning up against a wall, “You bit off way more than you can handle this time. You called down the thunder, now deal with it. Time to Bring the Heat!” With that he threw a punch which sent a blast of fire at both of them. The two wildly fired their guns but it did little to help them as the fire turned the bullets to slag before engulfing them in an agonizing fiery death. Kai looked past the two screaming men as he watched his friend Sephtis dance his way around the other men, cutting them down like they were wheat in a field. Kai had to admire the skill Sephtis displayed in situations like this, against living beings who could think and feel.

Kai knew in this game they would have to fight other players but of all of the contestants Kai knew of, he was afraid of fighting only one, Sephtis. Despite their sheer differences Kai considered Sephtis his brother. Heck the two were as close as two brothers could be, they were there for each other, they looked out for each other, heck Kai would die for Sephtis. But the idea of having to kill his brother was something he feared and it was inevitable they would have to one day soon. It was only the sound of the 12 gauge being chambered that saved Kai as he quickly pulled himself from his thoughts and ducked down. The shot gouged out a hole in the wall before Kai blasted the gun’s holder with a napalm strike so hot the man disintegrated within a few seconds. Kai only had a moment to shake his head at the stupidity of the man before another gun chambering around caused him to look left, one of the two guys he blasted was a live! “How?!” Kai asked in astonishment. “Doesn’t matter. Time to die now!” The man said as he leveled his gun. He didn’t get to pull the trigger as a flying scythe took his head off as he flew through the air towards Kai. Before it hit him the scythe stopped just a few inches of hitting him before it flew back towards the outstretched hand of Sephtis, “Cutting it kind of close Sep.” Kai said.

Sephtis retracted the scythe to it’s smaller form before replacing it on his belt in the folds of his cloak, “Better close than dead.” He responded. Kai snorted, “That's rich coming from you.” He said as the two walked back to the firebird, “Really?!” Kai said as he looked at his door, “Blasted raiders weren't satisfied with a mirror, so they knocked my door!” Kai shouted. “Could be worst.” Sephtis said calmly, “Could have been the hood.” The air was silent for several moments before Kai caught onto the double meaning of the statement and burst out laughing, “Sep, never let anyone say you don’t have a sense of humor!” He said mirthfully. Sephtis looked at him with a deadpan expression, “I don’t.” He said, causing Kai to laugh even more, “My point exactly!” He said as he opened his car door. Kai reached in for something before pulling back and looking at a half open map.

“I took note of the sign as we were riding in.” Kai said as he scanned the map, “If I had to hazard a guess we aren’t but a few miles out from our destination.” He laid it out so Sephatis could see, “I still think this is a bad idea. It could be a trap.” He added as Sephatis opened his door, “I doubt there is much risk from other players. It might actually be the safest place from them.” He said. Kai raised an eyebrow at Sephatis before getting an answer, “Holy ground.” Sephatis added. Kai nodded and mouthed ‘oh’ at this information, “Well, that puts me a bit at easy. Though I don’t feel comfortable being defenseless even in a designated safe zone. I don’t suppose there is anyway around that rule?” He asked. Sephatis calmly looked at him, “Unless the ground has been desecrated, no player on holy ground can harm another player.” Sephatis said before he entered the passenger seat, “Aw, and here I was hoping for a holy war.” Kai said as he entered the driver seat. “If we aren’t carefully, we’ll end up being the holy ones.” Sephatis said as the car started. Again, for a moment Kai payed the comment no never mind until he had a moment to process the double meaning which while gruesome, we so well timed he burst out laughing, “Never change Sep.” He said as the two pulled off heading towards their destination.

Title: Ruler of Knowledge || Dialogue:#179465

ImageA week ago, a man's voice had announced The Trickster's passing. "The trickster is no more," was the direct quote and the thought of how in these conditions pricked Sage's heart. They were pawns in a greater game, but they were only human at the core.

Sage paced for some time hoping those that she communicated with got her message and followed their instincts about it. She had quite the role ahead of her and it was a risky move prompting them all together so early on, reducing it to the size of one building. Though they couldn't harm each other on holy ground, one step outside and it could be a blood bath. But it also felt like the right move, or rather the only move left. For risk would come the only chance of reward.

"Beautiful to look at, deadly to touch." Sage heard first faintly. Like a poisonous plant. She didn't look up until the call grew much louder and she heard the old church door creak open. The Queen of Thorns was the first to enter and the moment they spotted each other, she shifted into an offensive posture. Sage's gaze turned to stone. Unfortunately, Sage couldn't entirely blame her or hate her for that.

A few more filed in slowly, their calls the first to announce their nearing. Sage had gathered what numbers she could of them but she could not make them stay so she was best to cut to the chase. “As you may or may not know, we are special individuals with unique abilities. But the purpose of us being here isn't some great cause...yet. We live to outlast each other and the victor gets immortality for five hundred years. At this rate we are nothing but pawns and a means of entertainment. But the gods can't have their game if we keep each other alive.” Sage met their gazes steadily but the worse was yet to be said. The contradiction of it all. “However, there are others out there like us who have lost touch with humanity and they need to be stopped. They will treat us like the enemy so you should do the same. The people in this room is what matters most. I'm proposing an alliance. And for us to figure out how to end these games once and for all, together.”

Dialogue: #62039E

As more and more players piled in the church Scarlett was internally freaking out. She was already wary when she realized The Ruler of Knowledge was here and then The Temptress, Lord of Lightning, and best of all The Warrior, walk through the door. Scarlett also heard the calls of The Huntress, The Hunter, The Inferno, and The Hollow Man, which meant that they were most likely coming here as well. What the hell is going on? Scarlett knew that it was natural for players to merge, but she had never heard of it happening like this before.

While she waited for the ruler to speak, she surveyed her competitors. The ruler seemed to be a bit nervous based on the way she was pacing back and forth. She seemed pretty healthy as Scarlett did, which of course was due to there special abilities. It was rare to see any girls after the apocolypse, let alone healthy ones. The few Scarlett had seen had been slaves that were dragged around by chains. Men had tried to do the same to Scarlett, but one glance at her thorn claws and they took off running.
The Temptress was also around Scarlett's age and had long auburn hair. Even while the girl's powers were dormant, she had an alluring presence to her that made Scarlett want to draw closer. It seems that this game is full of powerful and beautiful women. Scarlett always liked to see some girl power, so she was pleased with this knowledge.

Admittedly though, the Lord of lightning was pretty cute. He seemed to be confused and if Scarlett had to guess, she would say that he was not aware of the game that they playing. As for The Warrior, he looked terrifying in his all black armor. Scarlett knew he was a man, but she could not see what he looked like with the armor covering him from head to toe. Scarlett was not happy to be in the same room as the man who had won the last game.

Seeming to want to get her message across, The Ruler of Knowledge finally spoke.  “As you may or may not know, we are special individuals with unique abilities. But the purpose of us being here isn't some great cause...yet. We live to outlast each other and the victor gets immortality for five hundred years. At this rate we are nothing but pawns and a means of entertainment. But the gods can't have their game if we keep each other alive.” The ruler met their gazes as if they were not going to like the next part. “However, there are others out there like us who have lost touch with humanity and they need to be stopped. They will treat us like the enemy so you should do the same. The people in this room is what matters most. I'm proposing an alliance. And for us to figure out how to end these games once and for all, together.”

Scarlett sat in shock. End the game? That was unheard of. She wasn't even sure if it was possible and yet, she couldn't stop the glimmer of hope she felt from the ruler's words. Scarlett would do anything to escape the horrid fate that was forced upon her. The only downside to this plan is that she would still have to kill some people, but Scarlett was willing to make that sacrifice for the overall outcome.

She stood from her spot in the pew and said, "I'll gladly join your alliance. I'm willing to do whatever needs to be done to end this game."

Dialogue: #DDCD20


If Aiden thought he was losing it before, he's really losing it now. He came to this creepy ass church for some unknown reason and then all these weird people around his age start pouring in and coming together like they're all part of some freaky cult. Then a guy, at least Aiden thinks it's a guy, comes in wearing black armor like some evil knight. To top it all off, blondie starts talking about being pawns in a game, and winning immortality, and killing people.

Maybe Aiden is dreaming. Yep. That's right. Any minute now, he's going to wake up and find out that the apocolypse hadn't happened. His siblings would still be alive, his parents would still be alive, and he would have his normal life back with none of his weird lightning powers. Hold on a minute. Powers. Didn't blondie say something about special abilities? How would she know about Aiden's powers? Is she... is she telling the truth?

No, of course not. It doesn't even make sense because if it was true, why is she the only one who knows about it.

Suddenly the brunette girl with the darker complexion stood up,"I'll gladly join your alliance. I'm willing to do whatever needs to be done to end this game."

Seriously? Does everyone here know what's going on, but me? Aiden still didn't know what was going on or what to believe, but he was starting to connect some things. The powers, the voices, the random floating images, they're all connected and Aiden is starting to think that these particular people are somehow involved in whatever is happening to him. Aiden was still unsure, but he decided he was going to listen to what they had to say.
