Introduction

My name is Reyna and I am a skin changer

In our world there are a few incredible people, mutations that were passed down from our ancestors that gave once ordinary humans the ability to change. They were dubbed Skin Changers and are a part of our mythical history. However, despite what they say, they are in no way mythical. The government tried to keep these incredible beings a secret, they wanted to use them as weapons and so when the first one popped up, they cut him open to find out how he ticked, to try to see if they could somehow extract the DNA and inject it into soldiers to create a super soldier.

More changelings began to pop up and the government classified them as a threat. The skin changers were extracted from their homes and taken to a private and very remote facility located in the Mojave desert. Everyday for lunch a group of changelings met and for three months they planned their escape, when it was finally time to leave, they were chased to the fence and one volunteered to stay behind as a distraction. The group promised to come back for him, but first they had to escape.

They were on the run for so long and the government realized that their search was futile. The shifters had holed up in an old cabin in Virginia, there they made the consecutive decision to never return to the regular world. They built a house in the middle of the woods and only go into town when they need supplies, but even then they are extremely cautious and only send the specialty type of changer.

When the group finally went back for their friend, they discovered that he had been dead and so, they rescued a new group of shape shifters and brought them to their safe house. The shape shifters are planning something big, they want revenge on the humans for kicking them out of society, for being scared of the unknown, but before they can put their plan into action, something even greater happens in the human world that could change the definition of normal.

Toggle Rules

  1. No God modding or Mary Sues!
  2. Please don't kill anyone's characters without their permission!
  3. Try to reply frequently, you are making a commitment when you join a role play!
  4. Please be polite and respectful to the other role players.
  5. DO NOT under any circumstances decide that you can get lazy and strt tlking lik dis. It makes no sense and serves no purpose other than to annoy.
  6. I do expect at least three sentences per reply, however, that is not a requirement.
  7. Have fun!
  8. Anime pictures only please!
  9. There are three types of changelings. The animal type, where they can turn into any animal that has been discovered, the human type where they can change their appearance (hair, eye color, height, body type, etc.), and finally, the inanimate type where they can turn into inanimate things (trees, chairs, cars). Shifting is slightly painful, but after a while your body gets used to it and the pain recedes to a dull throb or ache. Changing does not mean you are invincible, you still are as susceptible to things as that animal/human is.

Chris
Image

"Oh my, it seems like three of our beloved members have unexpectedly disappeared." Chris said to no one in particular, he had figured this would happen sooner or later, that the siblings would up and leave when they grew bored with what was going on. Oh well, Chris didn't need that type of attitude in the household, he had enough problems trying to keep Lottie in the house and getting Claire to speak up.

"Well since we're all obviously so anxious to leave, how about we all go into the town?" He suddenly decided. It was a risk, Chris knew. Such a big group going into town, but they could pretend to go to the local boarding school. No one really ever questioned those kid's presences; plus there were a ton of spare uniforms in the closet that they had collected over the past few years. So unless the boarding school had updated its uniforms, they would hopefully blend in.

"If everyone could please gather in the kitchen so we can talk about our outing!" Chris called up the stairs and poked his head into the living room. "Would you guys mind coming to the kitchen for a minute?" He went to sit at the table and waited for everyone to gather around. They would have to come up with an alibi in case something happened or they ran into someone that actually attended the boarding school (which would be unlikely considering that those kids considered themselves too classy to go to the town).

Claire was so quiet Chris had hardly noticed her until he looked up from the table. "Oh have you been here the whole time?" He asked her, hoping he didn't somehow offend the girl by implying he hadn't seen her.

Reyna
Image
Reyna stood up and held her hand out to Sapphire, leading the girl into the kitchen. Going into town? Her heart rate began to pick up at the prospect that she would actually get to see the humans! Reyna tried to calm herself down, if she grew too excited she would unwillingly shift and blow it before she could step onto real pavement. "Aren't you excited?" She asked Sapphire, hoping the answer was yes. Had Sapphire ever left the house before? Reyna wondered, trying to think back. She couldn't remember, really.

"Reyna will you go get Katherina for me?" Chris asked and Reyna nodded her head, dropping Sapphire's hand and going outside to the shed where she hoped Katherina would be. Reyna pushed the door open and stopped, the smell of blood and dead animal brought back bad memories. She felt dizzy as she stepped inside, her bare feet feeling cold on the hard floor of the shed. "Katherina?" She looked around, spotting the girl who sported an arm full of meat. "Um," Reyna stated nervously as she caught site of the sharp knives. "We're uh-having a meat-meeting about our alibi for going into town. Chris wants you to join us in the kitchen when you can."

She stepped back outside into the grass that was still slick with dew and gasped in the chilly mountain air. It was all she could not to vomit as she made her way back to the house. Reyna stepped inside and wiped her dirty feet on the mat before stepping onto the tiled floor of the kitchen. The smell of blood was still thick in her memory as she sat down next to Claire at the table.

Zak
Image


It is an odd feeling when someone has been trapped for so long to know that they are finally free. He knew it and yet, Zak still felt as though he were a prisoner. Every second was filled with terror, wondering if they were following him; if he was truly free. He didn't linger on the subject too long because for every feeling he felt there was also pain. It shot through his body whenever he took a step, the aches in his muscles made him feel weak and his lungs burned, starved of the oxygen they needed.

How long had he been running? Zak wasn't sure. He had run day and night, stopping only when he came across a puddle that was clean enough to drink from or a stream where he could bathe. He tried to count the nights that had passed since the armored vehicle had turned over on the side of the road and found that he could not recall a single moment. The only thing Zak could recall was the fleeting horror he felt with every step and when the boy found that he could not run any longer; he collapsed.

Pain filled every cell in his body, his lungs felt as if they were going to burst at any second and he rolled onto his side, curling into a ball beside the road. Zak closed his eyes, it felt as if he were going insane. Maybe it was a trick? Maybe he was still there, in that place in some sort of coma?

Fog touched the ground, the stars giving way to the sun. It was early morning and the chill bit through Zak's thin clothes. Two red eyes poked through the fog rolling on the ground, the pair blinked, the body they belonged to sitting up and looking around. With the arrival of the sun, Zak could see that he had gone from abandoned city to forest. There was large metal sign with an inscription in it, but from where he sat Zak could not see what it said. The boy stood on shaky feet, pushing forward to read what the sign said. "Welcome to Erjykove," he mumbled once he was close enough. Zak straightened and ran a hand through his white hair, "Erjykove?" It sounded imaginary, as if he had somehow stumbled upon a fantasy kingdom in the middle of America. Maybe he had died and had come upon Heaven?

Zak continued to trek forward, hoping to stumble upon a secluded cabin he could break into and take a shower in. Zak couldn't take the chance of going to the hospital, where they could possibly alert the government of his presence.

Re: The Changelings

@Ibbledibble: Alright, well thank you for informing us of your absence.

@Everyone else: Oh my it seems that this RPG has died already. I would like to request that everyone at least try to get in one reply per week.

Re: The Changelings

I apologize for not posting in a while as I've been going through some, er, tough times recently. I've decided to focus on the real world for now as I'm afraid if I become distracted by other activities I may forget what really matters. I deeply apologize that I am taking a short break from writing to deal with some personal matters. Thank you and I am once again sorry for the inconvenience. This does not mean I'll be gone forever, hopefully just for a while. :) Love you guys!

Re: The Changelings

My Internet has been acting really strangely as of late which is why I have not replied yet. Due to this I am going to further postpone my post until someone else replies. Sorry for the inconvenience. If I can fix my internet I may post sooner.

Re: The Changelings

No problem Avalon! The real world comes first, right?

Re: The Changelings

I'm sorry to inform that me and Haden (he be my boyfriend) will not be on for a couple of days still. School, work and apartment hunting can do that sadly. Just carry on without us and we will caught up.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Re: The Changelings

Might as well reply now. It wouldnt hurt.

Re: The Changelings

Should I reply now, or wait for one more person?

Re: The Changelings

@Masquerade, yay! Glad to see you back in action. :3 Just posted.

Re: The Changelings

I'm back a lot earlier than I thought!

@Ibbledibble, that's rather impressive.

Re: The Changelings

"Whatever nightmare she had had had really freaked her out." I didn't know I could use "had" three consecutive times in the same sentence. Lol, working on my post currently.

Re: The Changelings

@ All:

Skye will not have internet till late tonight, so you really dont have to wait for her to post before you do..

Re: The Changelings

I love how it is telling me I cant reply even though I havent for quite a while. ANNOYING!

Edited:
Oh hey it worked... HA

Edited-ed:
Lennox is so sexy... MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Edited-ed-ed:
I hate this 1 hour and 40 minute class.... :( I don't want to learn how to on Microsoft Office! This isn't fairrr

Re: The Changelings

@Ibbledibble It's fine!

Due to unforeseen circumstances I will not be able to reply until late tomorrow night. I apologize for the inconvenience, I will try to sneak away for a few minutes to at least read what everyone posts.

Re: The Changelings

Ahh, sorry I won't be able to post tonight. I started a post but wasn't able to complete it. Will post tomorrow though, that's a promise! :3

Re: The Changelings

Alright sounds good to me :) I'm going to go post now. To the posting-vehicle away! lol (quiet I know it wasn't funny)

Re: The Changelings

That would work and I was wondering that too. Of course they could just steal, but that would be petty, even for a shape shifter; for now let's just see how it plays out.

Re: The Changelings

Well if it doesn't work then I can always take that part out. He would most likely make the stuff at the safe house then deliver to the shop and someone who works for him would sell it. Like I said its no big deal if I take it out I was just thinking 'how do they get money?' so thats why I added that.

Edit: I change the picture hopefully it works now.

Re: The Changelings

Harden you're boy was great! The only thing that makes me tick is the fact that he has a shop. Obviously, they need some income but I was wondering how you will manage between going to the shop and not isolating your character from the rest of the Changelings.
Oh and I also wanted to inform you that the first picture in your bio isn't showing up because of zerochan copy right policies.

Re: The Changelings

I have submitted my male character :) I hope he's alright I can't wait to start.
