blighted hearts [RP]

a character in “The Sneak Chamber”, as played by Cato The Great



"What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets."

The vast plane of Istrakahn, it is here our story takes place. A story of hunters and their prey. A story of unwelcome guests and outsiders. But most of all, the story of a few blighted hearts.

Ataraxia, it is where all souls go in death. This ethereal plane is the source of all magic in the world, and it's greatest threat. For thousands of years, a malevolent race of demons known only as the Outsiders, who reside in Aphelion, a plane adjacent to Ataraxia, have been making contracts with and corrupting humans, granting them incredible supernatural powers in exchange for control over their souls. After making a contract, the human slowly becomes one of the Blighted. Manic, ghoulish and susceptible to the influence of the Outsiders, they attack those of innocent souls, in order to harvest their energy for their demonic masters.

In doing this, they become prey for the Blight Hunters, a group of operatives serving the Church of Asmoday. The Church is an organization dedicated to preventing and punishing all supernatural crimes and are the foremost authority on the use of magic. To use magic, one must be born with spectral sight, a phenomenon which allows humans to harness the raw energy of Ataraxia, and also be sanctioned by the church. To tap into the power of Ataraxia without their permission is strictly forbidden.

The Blight Hunters are placed in every major city, and are dedicated to hunting down and exterminating those blighted by the Outsider's influence. Their powers are granted to them from the Regalith, an artifact shrouded in secrecy. The Regalith creates a special weapon of pure translucent energy, unique for each Blight Hunter, and binds it to their soul. As a result, they can summon the phantasmal weapon at will. The weapons possess unique abilities, and feed off the energy of blighted souls. Absorbing the power of the Outsiders grants the Blight Hunters superhuman strength and speed however, they cannot perform magic, even if they possess the sight.

In the city of Halcyon Bay there lies a regal building. Its large iron gate keeps unwelcome guests from its halls, and its large courtyard is fenced off from the public. This building is known as the Bastion, the headquarters for the Blight Hunters of the Halcyon Bay chapter. The Bastion has been run for over a century by the Calloway family, a clan of well-known and influential Blight Hunters. The Head Hunter of the Bastion, Celian Calloway, keeps a watchful eye on the city, and though Halcyon Bay is one of the largest cities in Istrakahn, he has managed to keep it relatively free of the Outsider's influence. However, recently, his oldest son Ansel Calloway, who was one of two twins, and his partner Margaret Whitemoor were brutally killed on an assignment at an abandoned warehouse, rumored to be housing cult activity. Their bodies where decapitated and hung from the rafters by the wrists, with a strange runic symbol carved into their bare chests. Due to this loss, the Halcyon Bay chapter are in deep in mourning, but must also heighten patrols and investigate the murder of their beloved hunters.




The oldest of the Calloway siblings. Though brash and wild-hearted, his hunting skills are unmatched.

The partner of the eldest Calloway brother. Though usually a voice of reason, he can be as foolhardy as his partner at times.


The second-born son of the Calloway family. Calculated, calm and collected, his words are like a winter breeze.
16-18 - OPEN

The second-born son's partner. Though men bow down at her feet, she only takes pleasure in making her enemies kneel.

The bastion's resident doctor. Though she is young, she is as skilled as any veteran doctor and is vital asset to the hunters.
17- 21 - OPEN

The Hunter-Killer. This is the nickname given to the officer sent by the church to ensure none of the bastion's hunters fall to the influence of the outsiders, and in the case that they do, it is his job to eliminate them. Because hunters who fall to the outsider's influence are particularly dangerous, he is a seasoned veteran, and usually assists the hunters in particularly dangerous missions.
