This is one-hundred percent my own idea, and is actually sort of a reboot of an old RP I did a long time ago, though there is a lot that I changed. Any photos found here are not mine, but all the writing is.

Animal ~ Miike Snow

"I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip
Yeah I slip, I'm still an animal"

You were young when you first learned what you are, as we all are. As a child, you were always fascinated with nature. Something about the wild seemed to spark something deep within your soul. The forest made you dream, you were drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Sitting inside too long made you restless and agitated, and you always seemed to relate better to animals then people.

That is how it started, your deep love for all things wild. Then it grew inside you as you grew. Your restlessness grew stronger, and strange things started to happen around you. Accidents all of them, but some rather dangerous, possibly even fatal. You tried to suppress these strange powers, terrified of what it would mean. The world does not look kindly on the Others so you tried to fight it as hard as you could, but this only seemed to make things worse.

Then the Metamorphosis happened and there was no going back. Your Familiar sought you out. After years of feeling a strange emptiness inside that nothing seemed to fill, the two of you met and, finally became whole. You looked into the eyes of your Familiar, and knew, without a doubt, what you were.

You were Other.

Others are one of nature's greatest mysteries. Some say these beings are made with magic, while the more scientific insist that they are a result of genetic mutation. The truth, however, is that it's a little bit of both. Others are a half animal, half human species that possess supernatural abilities. For the early parts of their lives, they can easily pass as human, and often believe they are human even though they are not. This is because their powers grow very slowly. Save for a sense of loneliness and emptiness they can't explain, as well as an almost spiritual connection with nature, there are no tell-tale signs that a person is an Other until they are about seven years-old.

Once they reach this age, their powers begin to form and manifest themselves randomly, often with dangerous consequences. This lasts for several years, until about age thirteen. This is when the final stage occurs, the Metamorphosis. The Other's Familiar will seek them out. Upon meeting, the animal and human bond instantly and become one complete being in two separate bodies. From then on the Other and it's Familiar are inseparable, as they are two halves of a whole.

Society is terrified of the Others. They are treated as mutants, or an alien race, seen as invaders of the peace. Their powers are both feared and coveted by the humans who cannot seem to understand them, and as such, Others become pariahs. There are very few laws protecting Others, making them victims of violence and injustice often. They have almost no rights. The humans fear them and wish to control them. As such, from 1945-1951, the Cleansing occurred. This was a worldwide slaughter of Others by humans in an attempt to wipe out the race for good.

The Cleansing greatly reduced the number of Others in the world, driving them to the brink of extinction, but it did not successfully obliterate the race. So instead of destroying them, the humans tried, instead, to control them. The law prevents Others from working or going to school, as well as impersonating a human in order to do these things, so Others have no way to provide for themselves in the material world. As such, many are driven away from humans and civilization into the wilderness from which they are born.

The more desperate to adapt, however, are given another option. They can sign the Contract. The Contract is a document issued by the government. Any Other who signs the Contract becomes government property. This means that the government can utilize them however they see fit, whether it be experiments in a lab, or military service. In exchange for signing, the Other is given a weekly government paycheck and is then allowed to purchase property. This allows the government to control the powers of the Others. Those that go into the military or special forces are turned into deadly weapons through a series of vigorous mental and physical training. Those who become science experiments are treated as rats in a lab with little regard for the Other's well being.

Whether choosing to abandon civilization for the wilderness, or to attempt a human life working for the government, an Other does not have an easy life. They are treated like a disease among humans, and are generally not trusted by their own kind. Most of the Others take this cruelty because they do not see another option. However, there are some who do not stand for the abuse. Any rebellion is usually swiftly crushed, but the Others grow restless. Lately there has been talk of attacks on government labs, facilities, and prisons where Others are brutalized. A Revolution seems to be stirring. The Others might have just had enough.

There is a Revolution hidden deep in the wild forests. It is made up of Others from all walks of life who have come together to try and put an end to society's abuse of the Others. They're somewhat of a vigilante group, jumping to the aid of their fellow Others whenever necessary. They operate out of an old abandoned hotel. The hotel sits on the precipice of a steep cliff and is surrounded by forests on all sides. It's a crumbling building that is being reclaimed by the forest, but the Revolution has managed to make it a rather comfortable home and a functioning headquarters. The road leading to the building is no longer in use as it stretches from the hotel into the trees and eventually, crumbles away into nothing, so they are completely secluded.

Following the road will eventually bring you to a railroad, which will take you to a tunnel that goes underground. For Others who do not travel via flying or teleportation, this is how the Revolution gets about as the tunnels connect to city tunnels. They can get nearly anywhere using this system, and there are various checkpoints throughout the tunnels where small camps filled with rations and supplies have been set up for travelers to use. It's about a three-day trip to the nearest city using the tunnels.

The Revolution's goal is to help Others that are being abused by humans. The hotel is called the Sanctuary, as it started out as a simply a safe haven for all Others looking to escape the humans, but not wishing to live alone. As the place filled up, it's members began to talk about the idea of acting against the humans who forced them there and the Revolution was born. They work to free Others wrongfully imprisoned in special government prisons, destroy government labs conducting cruel experiments on Others, and bring down Other training facilities where Others are turned into government weapons.

The operation is well organized, though, despite magical abilities, the Revolution remains the underdog. Their resources are limited and the government has technology at their fingertips that can help them against the Others supernatural abilities. However, this Revolution is still a huge threat as it is very secretive and elusive, nearly impossible for the government to find and destroy. They certainly try though. In an attempt to crush the rebellion, the humans pit Others against Others by sending out Other "hunters" to find and destroy the rebellion. These hunters are the monsters the government creates in it's awful training facilities after the Contract is signed. They are Others that were turned into special agents and military weapons and serve the humans loyally. As such, the Revolution is very apprehensive of newcomers in a way it never was before, but they have to be in order to fight another day.

Note:
1. First of all, please refer to OOC when it comes to species/character reservations. There is an OOC thread describing the various Other species as well as a thread for reservations that is pretty straight forward. Once your reservation is accepted you will see you information added here.
2. I am always very flexible with characters/roles. I have set certain roles for you, obviously, but these are not always concrete. The main roles are government employees (scientists, special agents, Hunters, ect), Revolution members, and humans. If you would like to break these rules a little however, you can run it by me and I'd be happy to hear your ideas. Don't be afraid to get creative, I love when people are interested enough in my RP to expand on it in their own way. Just make sure you run things by me first!
3. Currently, there is no cap on characters. However, at some point, I will have to cut things off in order to get things started. If you wish to join after this cut-off, you'll have to talk to me about it personally. Each writer can create as many characters as he/she wants, so long as they can handle them all.
4. If you have any questions regarding characters, you can either PM me or ask VIA OOC, I'm more then happy to help.

The role for these villains vary. Villains can be anyone against the Revolution. This means they can be lab scientists, government special agents, Hunters, or humans.
I have provided less slots here then in the Revolution section because I anticipate that these characters will not be as common, however, there can be more added.

Extras refer to character roles I have not provided for you. If you speak with me about making an Extra, they will be added in here. These characters can be loner Others, rouge Hunters, human Revolution members, ect. I like to encourage character creativity in my RPs so feel free to get creative, just make sure you run it by me first because, while I'm open to ideas, I would like for things to still remain in the scope of the RP.

1. | Reservations | Please make your reservations in the reservation thread, not in the general OOC thread. This is just to make sure everything's nice and organized and I don't accidentally miss your reservation. After you reserve your character, I would like to see a WIP within a day or two. If you do not at least have a WIP submitted within two days, your reservation will be opened back up. Once you have a WIP submitted, I'm flexible with times, though please try to be reasonable. I will remove any unfinished WIPs when the RP begins (unless you contact me and I let you have an extension.)
2. | Face claims | While I have nothing against animated face claims, this RP will use real FCs. You may choose whoever you like as your FC.
3. | Character Sheets | While I understand not everyone is a coding whiz, I would like for your characters to look nice. Please create well thought out, in-depth characters. I have not provided a specific CS, as everyone likes to make their characters their own way, but if you need one, let me know and I'll be happy to help you out. You may include whatever you like in your CS, but please include the basics (name, age, personality, history, ect), as well as sections for species and role.
4. | Adult | This RP is to be considered an adult RP. That means that I would like for the majority of the characters to be over eighteen (unless cleared with me), that way this doesn't become some angsty teenage saga. Also, this means that language and content will be mature. Swearing is fine, I do it all the time. Sexual content, however, I do have to limit. I'm rather lenient, but please, do not get too graphic. It's really not necessary.
5. | Advanced | As you can probably tell by now, this will be an advanced writing RP. I want to see characters and posts that are well thought out and descriptive. Obviously no one's perfect, I can forgive small grammar/spelling mistakes, but you must be able to write clearly and elaborately.
6. | Plot | This is a rather open-ended RP. I have provided you with a basic plot and character roles, but the rest is up to you. Obviously, I will guide the story a little, but just because I am the maker of this RP does not mean I want to be the only one leading it. Feel free to get creative please. Get involved with the story and make it interesting, help guide it along, stir up drama. This being said, please remain within the scope of the RP. I encourage creativity and plot twists, but don't get too outrageous. I don't want to see aliens or any such nonsense appear(;
7. | Loyalty | I am looking for loyal players for this. If you join, please honer that commitment and stay loyal. If something comes up where you cannot get on for a while, let me know, I'll understand, and if you have to quit after a while, please tell me so I know as opposed to abandoning us completely. I'm looking for this to be a group of loyal writers, and I would like for everyone to be able to post at least a few times a week. If you do not have the time, don't join. This RP took me ages to create and I worked very hard on it, so I would hate to see it die.
