a character in “The Masks of Death”, originally authored by TheMagnificentVanillaBean, as played by RolePlayGateway



Name: Ophelia

True Name: Joanna Gregory

Age: She was twenty-two when she died in 1925

Physical Description: Ophelia is 5'6', but looks very underweight for her height. She has long blue hair that she keeps in pigtails, blue eyes, blue lips, and a blueish tint to her pale skin that is an indicator of drowning. When not wearing her reaper attire, she always wears blue dresses. Her death mask is blue and white with a giant flower.

Personality: Ophelia is a nice girl who generally cares about other people, but she's no pushover. She has her own rules and morals that she goes by, and has no problem voicing her opinions. She tends to project a sweetness and innocence that people think they can take advantage of, but she's a fighter when backed into a corner. She has a strong need to protect the innocent, and punish the bad people.

Cause of Death: Drowning

Past: Her good looks and personality awarded her a stalker when she was alive. He would leave a basket of blue flowers on her porch everyday, with threatening love letters stuck inside. He snatched her off the side of the road when she was coming home one day, knocked her out cold. When she awoke, she was at a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. He kept her locked up inside the house for about a year before she was able to get away. She ran as far and as fast as she could, but she tired quickly, and didn't even think when she ran right into a river. It was much deeper than it looked, and she's still not sure if she didn't have the strength, or the will to swim to the surface, but it didn't take long for her to drown. Her body floated down the river until a fisherman it and alerted the authorities.

Ability: Ophelia can manipulate water. She can use it as a whip, drown people, etc. She can extract moisture from the air, or any living being, though the more she can get a hold of, the better she can use it.

Weapon: A trident

Whose side are you on?: Sinclair

So begins...

Valko stood over the body of a young woman who lay in a puddle of her own blood. For him, the worst part about his job was that he had to be there whenever a new recruit died, otherwise their soul might wander away from the body, or another Reaper might come along and help them to pass on. Or even worse, Sinclair could arrive on the scene and steal another soul away for his rogues.

The figure on the ground before the Frost Wolf Reaper looked barely old enough to be an adult. The woman she had been trying to protect had gotten away, which was good, but the man who had committed this crime had fled as well. The murderer had seemed to recognize the woman, maybe she was someone important? Valko had no idea, didn't care. Whoever she was while alive, that wasn't who she would soon become, was becoming. As he watched the woman seemed to raise up out of herself, the separation of soul and body. He didn't think he'd ever get used to the sight.

"Miss, I'm going to have to ask you to come with me." Valko says as he reaches out and takes her hand. She now wore a yellow dress and bore a scar on her forehead from her death. "I've got a lot to talk to you about, but not here in the streets."

The Reaper leads her over to the shadow cast by a dumpster, but as they reach the darkness they disappear into it, and after a moment of nothingness, they find themselves standing in what appears to be an old warehouse. Two other figures can be seen milling around, both men, which might worry the woman, but there was little Valko could do about that, and besides, what he had to say would probably make her forgot her worried about such things.

"Please, take a seat." Valko says, releasing her hand and walking over to a table, pulling a chair out for her. "These two men are friends. This is Finn, and Mordax." He points to each of them in turn, then to the two of them he says, "This is the newest recruit. I'm about to give her the talk, so please don't interrupt." Turning back to the young woman, Valko takes a seat across from her and clears his throat. Up until now he has been wearing his Reaper attire of a black robe and a wolfish mask, but how he removes the mask, which seems to turn to dust and float away on an unseen breeze, as does the robe, revealing that Valko is now wearing black pants and a grey button down shirt.

"I know this may be hard to understand, but please bare with me. You are dead now, and Death himself has recruited you into his services. From this day forward, you are a Reaper. You will be given new abilities, some unique to yourself, some general ones that we all have. You will use these powers to defend yourself against the evils of the world while you carry out the task of helping the souls of the dead to the other side." Valko pauses then to let this sink in, wondering how she will react.


"It seems I was too slow this time." Sinclair says, removing his mask to reveal dark hair and eyes that seem to glow slightly. He stands on the rooftop of a building across the street, looking down on the scene as Valko disappears into the shadows. A few moments later a sobbing woman returns with a man, and in the distance sirens wail. "Fools, don't they know that it's too late for those? That it's too late for anything now."

Smirking, Sinclair steps backwards into a shadow and emerges from the shadow of a grandfather clock into the den of an old, run down mansion. The place had been deserted decades ago, thought to be haunted. It was outside of the city, far enough away from anyone else that the Blade Reaper and his rogues could have their privacy without the need to keep themselves too quiet. After all, if the place was supposed to be haunted, who wouldn't expect the occasional odd noise.

"Ophelia, Raven, Lune," Sinclair calls out as he moved further into the house. "It seems the enemy has a new recruit, but no matter. We also have a bit of prey to hunt down. There is a murderer lose in the city, and I feel like going out for a walk, would anyone care to join me?"

The rogues were free to do as they pleased really, so long as when Sinclair asked them for something they complied. Normally, each night when the sun went down, his crew would head out into the streets and do what they did pest. Punish whomever they saw fit. It was easier to do this at night, because in a city like this which never really slept, the odd ones always came out later, and few people would question a group of odd looking individuals wandering the streets. Even if they displayed their powers the poor simple humans often chalked it up to a show of some sort.

"I also caught wind that a demon may enter the city this evening, and those are always good fun."

Lune had been playing on her new 3DS. She had originally abhorred the things, but when she saw one lying abandoned on a bench at the park, just as it was about to rain, she had taken it home and in an uncharacteristic mood intending to get up early and head to the police station the next day.

Obviously, that's not how it turned out.

"No, no, no! Absol, dodge it, dodge it, dodge... AW!", she had whined, just as Valko came in. Having grown used to her unusual intensity while playing on the thing however, nobody said a word.

She looked up at her superior from her position on the couch as he started talking. To be honest, she didn't feel like it, she mused, but a murderer was a murderer, and if Valko saw it necessarily to intervene, despite probable police investigation, it was either a nasty one or a smart one. Possibly both.

"Are we going as a group, two groups or splitting up to fulfil the objectives?", she asked -hopeful- as she didn't want to deal with a demon so soon after the last one. Good fun he says, not only had the previous demon caught her on her own and wounded her nearly to the point of going into shadow stasis, but it had also destroyed one of her favourite dresses, and while she did feel like venting, she wasn't up to it. Even quick healing wasn't instantaneous healing.

Some might have called her weak for being hurt this badly, but Lune, while somewhat talented with her weapon, did not have a combat ability to make up for the raw difference in strength.

Well, so it was true in a way, her being weak, but she hated to be called out on it.

Raven was hovering over Lune as she played her game. It seemed rather interesting, though it was clear that the child-like man was holding back from asking too many questions so that he didn't distract the girl from playing. The sound of his name being called was enough to distract Raven, and he blinked a couple of times, smiling brightly as he spotted Sinclair enter the room.

Bouncing over to the other male, Raven waved in greeting before settling down next to the taller male, though it now seemed whatever had been holding him back from asking questions to Lune had gone as word after word spilled from Raven's lips. "Where did you go? Was there anything yummy looking? Did you have fun? Wait, Valko got someone new?" At the mention of Valko, the green-eyed male frowned for a moment. He wasn't overly fond of the Frost Wolf Reaper, he kept spoiling Raven's fun.

The mention of a murderer and a moment later a demon soon had Raven smiling brightly again. "A murderer? And a demon? Can I? Can I? Me me me!" Laughing a little, Raven started humming a random, disjointed tune as he continued his earlier bouncing, though now moving around Sinclair as he did so. There was something going on out there and he wanted to get going already. It wouldn't be surprising if his childish antics annoyed someone, but Raven was too excited to really care what the others thought at this point.
