Dower Prose

"Both the light and dark bring sorrow, no one is good"

0 · 212 views · located in Imaginary and Beautiful World

a character in “The Imaginary World”, as played by Eragon the sniper

Description

Description: he is tall ( 6'8") thin man. Very little of his body can be seen, only his lower face can be seen at all times (since a hood covers most of his face), and when you can see his eyes, they are in shadow. He wears a large gray-black trench coat, black leather gloves, stone gray trousers and black jack boots which make an eerie clink with each step he makes (he can also hover if he wants to be silent) When he weeps, he weeps blood. His skin his white, but not chalk white. ( http://ganeshsri31.files.wordpress.com/ ... itwolf.jpg )

Age:??? looks late 20's

Personality:he is a loaner. He believes the dark is as bad as the light and visa versa. Even those who act "unselfishly" he still sees them as some what selfish. He always sighs and talks in a down-trodden voice. (which his word-antics don't match his slik-smooth voice). He is hard to anger or to strike fear in. Since he sees compassion as a need to self serve ones desire to be loved and return love, he has never tried to make connections.

Powers: Can disappear and reappear almost instantly anywhere there is shadows. Can make you relive your worst memories. (OFC power: when ever he comes across a really selfish individual (or group) he goes out of his mind (temporary), turns into monstrous skeletal bird-like creature and tries to devour them.

equipment: butterfly knife (uses for one of his last-resort fear-tatics), canteen of cold water that never seems to run out. (he found one day wandering around) A compass that never points north.

Bio: been around ever since the world was created by Emma. But in the beginning, he was a bit more on the "light" side, even started to "fall" for a women, but when she was consumed by the "dark", he fell into despair and sorrow, so much so that the memory of her continues to slowly leave him. He has spent the rest of his time wandering around the world. Both those of "light" and "dark" fall into the "blues" for a few days everywhere he goes.

(anything else, or need me to expand anything, just ask)

Dower walked slowly along the concrete wall on a roof of one of the tallest building in all of Aster. Slowly putting on foot in front of the other, heel to toe. The eerie clink died away as it traveled down to the streets below. Most of the world bellow his feet. The selfish right bellow his feet. He stopped in place and turned to face the street. The people looked like tinny grains of sand from up here. He lifted one foot off the wall and pressed it down open air, as if you squash them.

A sudden explosion nearly threw him off the roof, but he steadied himself. Looking to the left he saw smoke rising. He gave a small sigh.
"Well... it took them a while." He stepped of the wall back onto the roof. The wall was casting a shadow, and Dower disappeared right into it.

Dower suddenly reappeared in the shadows of an ally way by a building that was much closer to where the explosion went off. Screams of pain, people yelling, running away or towards the source of the explosion. The wind was pushing the smoke down the city blocked, slowly making visibility worse. The smell of burning brick and treated wood was slowly becoming stronger in the air.

"Pain. The ultimate form of selfishness. Trying to get away from it so you won't feel it. Then Guilt and sorrow follow that you didn't try to help so others would not be in pain. Pain just leads to sorrow.

A young girl caught his eye that was running away from the explosion. She tripped and rolled in front of the building just a few yards away from him. He narrowed his eyes. It was Emma.

"Emma, I haven't seen her in ages." Then a short, young, blond came and held her up. Her name was Vivienne, if he remembered correctly. He saw Emma talking to her, but her words were drowned out by all the yelling and screaming.

Emma smiled.
"Together would be great. And I agree... much safer."
Although Emma wasn't sure if safer was an option, she would prefer to not be alone when heading to River Town.
"I just have to run back to my apartment to get my stuff. Then we can head out."
Emma ran to her apartment to grab a few things that she would wish to take. She found her brown stuffed bear, which was in rough shape, lying on her bed. It had been created with her. She wondered what Maria had given it to her for.... Maybe she just needed a friend..... Cheesy....

Cara was freaking out. Had someone... waved at her? Plus it looked like that one boy heard her and was looking for her. How had they.... Cara's invisibility wavered as she grew nervous. For only a split second, she appeared, but manipulated her light again as quickly as she could. It wasn't her time to be seen yet. And if she got caught, she couldn't fathom what they would do to her if she would make it into their hands alive. They would prefer her to die a captive than reemerge a coward. She had no intent on dying either way.

Out of nowhere a horrific sob rang out. Cara looked up and smiled at the darkness's good work. People were beginning to panic. Just according to plan.

Emma soon left with Vivi, he just caught pieces of the conversation about going "home" and "needing to collect her things". Soon after a young women with long red hair started to come his direction. He quickly disappeared into the shadows. From inside the shadows he watch her light a stick of Dynamite.

( Going back to the old suff ) Dower thought to himself (so sad that she couldn't get anything better. IF she killed enough, there would be less sorrow, but she does just enough to cause more sorrow) with a sigh, He walked back into the realm of shadows. He closed his eyes, focusing on all the sounds coming from the different shadows around him. Then he heard he voice he was searching for. He floated up to a small shadow in the entrance of an apartment building. There was Emma and Vivi. Emma just told Vivi "We have to go now". Warning of danger, danger and death. Sorrow. She then ran out of the building. Dower followed her in the shadow realm, getting quick peaks at here through different shadows. She soon stopped at the edge of Aster, near the leaving sign. A large birch tree was casting a shadow in the afternoon sun he walked up to the shows right behind Emma. Still in the realm of shadows Dower spoke out.

"But why go to River Town Emma? The news would just bring fear, dread and sorrow. Sure, less will die, but that just means more sorrow. Of you don't warn, more will die, hence less will live to be in sorrow. I don't want this world, your world, to be in sorrow."

Emma Brooke, with her small bag of things, took off running down the street, pushing past the panicked people who's eyes were wide with horror. Emma felt sorry, but she had to get to River Town ASAP. She almost forgot about Vivienne! Emma looked around, but couldn't see her friend anywhere.
"Vivienne?" Emma asked, her green eyes scanning the area. Emma stuck her thumb into her mouth and began softly gnawing on it. It was a bad habit she got when she was nervous. Emma took in a deep breath.
If I can just get out of the crowd, maybe she'll find me or I'll spot her.
Emma hurried through the busy streets, only reaching an open area when she saw the sign.
"Thanks for visiting Aster City! Come again!"
Emma stared at the sign. She had never saw that side of the welcome and goodbye sign. Emma had never even thought about leaving Aster City. And here she was, on a race to River Town, the place she swore never to return to. Emma turned to look back for Vivienne, but to her horror, a hiss came from behind her. She turned only to let out one word.
"CRAP!"

....

The Snow Beast had just finished a good meal. The child was.... eight maybe? It was stupid for wandering into this part of the woods. Sean had secluded him as deep into the middle of nowhere as he could, but people were still curious. The Beast smiled sickly at his strange popularity. He was some sort of tourist attraction... but any brave enough to find the main event became the main course.
Just as the Beast prepared to take a nap on his full stomach, a small yet angry cry arose from a nearby spot in the forest. The Beast couldn't comprehend what the voice was saying, only that it seemed like less and less people valued their lives anymore... more and more wanted to visit him. The Beast looked around, but couldn't see where the owner of the voice was. As he shook off the blood of his last meal, he charged at where the last noise had came from, only being stopped by the chain around his leg. He growled and yanked with all his might, but couldn't break the chains. He let out a horrid cry as he lay down in the snow, defeated by the brains of his human form. As he drifted off, he slowly began to change to a scrawny boy with black hair and pale skin. The boy laid in the snow, surrounded in the blood of the child he hadn't meant to kill. He did not stir in his deep sleep.

...

Cara James strolled along the city. She was unnoticed by many and those who saw her were too busy worrying about the explosions and earthquakes than to think of what an innocent looking girl may be plotting. Cara tried not to smile at how stupid these people were. They were too daft in their end to think of the girl that walked and talked like them. They were too selfish to point a finger at the girl who they had taken everything away from. Suddenly, a pain shot through Cara's body. It wasn't the pain of some kind of wound, but the pain of remembering her parents. Remembering what had been done to them. Remembering how cruel the people who murdered them were. Hate ran through her body like blood pumping through her veins.
They deserve to die! Cara thought in anger. She huffed and marched along the sidewalk, not noticing the very few people who wondered if she was here... who had noticed her.... She thought she was safe. She was as far from safe as she could get.

(OOC: previous post altered to fit one above)

After he was done speaking, Emma turned around to see nothing, and she murmured a small "crap". Dower was looking right at her, even though she couldn't see him, he knew she knew he was there.

"So, you do recognize my voice Emma. It has been a long while since we last spoke. Trying to suppress your sorrow by fear, anger, joy. But answer my question Emma. Do you want the sorrow to continue? Letting the dark win will kill everyone, so there will be no more sorrow."

Emma stared back at Dower Prose. She hadn't seen him in a while. She had a run in with him when she first came to town. I guess they may have hit it off on the wrong foot. Emma crossed her arms.
"That's just being alive. You have sadness in life, but it will pass. Good can prevail. And, by warning everyone, we can save lives. Wouldn't a mother be more happy to know her child is living than dead? If I let them die, I'll be just like the people killing them. My turn to ask a question. Where is Vivienne?"
Emma seems very strict with her last words. Although Emma is a joyful person, she doesn't look happy one bit.
"If you've done anything to her, you're not going to just get away. So, shall I ask again? Where is she?"

...

Sean woke up to fingers on his neck. His eyes shot open and he grabbed the arm of the person touching him. Sean was about to ask who he was and what he was doing when he realized the situation. He was sitting in a pool of blood and bones.
"Ah!" he screamed, leaping out of the bones. Shaking, Sean backed up, but his sore foot gave way and he landed on his rear in the cold snow. He had surely twisted his ankle from the Beast pulling at the chains.
Sean placed his head in his hands. What had he done? What had happened? He looked up to the boy staring back at him.
"If you're going to kill me, do it," Sean said, hoarsely. "Kill me."

"Now why would I do anything to Vivienne? I have never killed anyone. True, I have made people so full of sorrow that they kill themselves, but that just means that they were overcome by their selfish desires in life. Just give me one moment" And dower disappeared into the shadow realm, He quickly floated over to another "shadow portal" and saw Vivienne, stading in the entrance hall, a concerned look on her face. Dower returned to Emma.

"Well, Vivienne is still back at the entrance hall of your apartment. I can retrieve here if you want. And it seems that I can't change your mind, I could help you get to river town much faster"

(OOC: I doubt anyone is even still checking this, but I thought I'd make one last post at least, if not somehow give the roleplay CPR and somehow restart it's heart. Although it's probably dead, I just want to say it was fun while it lasted and I had a fun time roleplaying with you guys.)

The boy had a lot of questions, most of these Sean didn't even know how to begin answering. How he had came to be the legendary Snow Beast was a thing of mystery to even him. But, he decided it would be good to start with a name.

"My name is Sean," he said in a hoarse and quiet voice. His throat was scratchy and he felt sick at the smell of death all around him. "I was a shape-shifter with full control over my power. I never hurt anyone and I had never transformed into a beast like the one I do now. One day, I just lost it. Now whenever my adrenaline is peaked or I'm hungry, it happens. So, I locked myself away for good measure. But every now and then a curious person strolls along, thinking I'm just a stupid myth. And I can't stop myself."

He tried to pull his hand free, but the boy seemed to have an iron grip. Normally, Sean would have been strong enough to release himself, but he was tired and miserable, so he didn't prevail. He looked at the boy and gave him a serious look. "Just, whatever you do, don't take me back to town."

...

Emma stared at Dower, completely surprised. He, of all people, wanted to help her get to River Town. Emma figured he would try to sabotage her trip or kill them both in the process. But Emma's power sensed that he was right. It would be faster if their were three of them to fight off whatever crap was in store for them on the way there.

Although her gut screamed at her not to, she nodded. "Alright," she said. "I guess we could use some more company." Her voice still seemed a bit cold and stern. "But if you try anything, anything in the slightest, you will regret it. So, let's go get Vivienne."
...

Cara couldn't help but smile. She had played her part in striking fear into the city. And now the others who were with the Darkness were going to play their hand. Now Cara just had to stay out of sight at watch the world fall apart.

Dower just gave a weak smile and disappeared into the shadows. and reappeared out of the shadows of the dark corner of the apartment lobby next to Vivi.

"Emma is sorry she left with out you Vivienne. She sent me to bring you to her" Dower whispered in her ear.
