wings: The Institute

wings: The Institute


you wake in a strange place. you don't know where you are, you don't know who you are, and all you want to do is get out. But escaping isn't easy when you are the government's new weapon of war - winged soldiers.

Copyright: The creator of this roleplay has attributed some or all of its content to the following sources:

there are a number of other people that have used the idea of winged people. 'the institute' is my original plot, but i take no credit for the entirety of this concept.


the story so far...

You awake in a room. you don't know this room, nor do you know the others in the surrounding beds. and the you realise you don't even know yourself. you feel a heavy weight on your back. you reach, but what you wind isn't removable. you have wings. they have wings. time to panic.

what you are about to find out is that you are in a place called 'The Institute', a government funded research facility specializing in war weaponry. you, and the others, were created by your leaders as a new soldier task force 'wings'. this place aims to train you in combat and team skills, before unleashing you into battle. you are aiming to escape while you still have your sanity and a will not to take lives. who wins depends on you and your team. good luck.


Test Subject One: the leader
he is a (un)natural born leader. finds it easy to make decisions, but
will strive to seek out the right way. very centered around morals and
ethics, which is something The Institute is trying to remove. extremely
loyal, believes in 'no man left behind'. trusts the second in command
completely, however, he can also be very stubborn when he has made
up his mind.
male || 17 || open

Test Subject Two: the second in command
she is better at analysing situations. quite smart, and takes everything
into consideration before advising the leader on her opinion. she is the
only one who is not afraid to stand up to him, and will always speak her
mind if she deems it necessary. she is the one the others come to for
advise, and will always question. The Institute is wary of her because of
her intellect, as they fear she may figure out how to escape. they hope to
stop this through any means necessary.
female || 17 || reserved for fox;;

Test Subject Three: the sniper
his eye for detail is impeccable, and he is a fantastic shot. not the best at
close contact, but very lethal at a further range with a gun. also dabbles in
knife throwing and archery. is the second best flyer.
male || 17 || reserved
Test Subject Four: the fighter
she is the teams best fighter. she is very skilled at hand-to-hand, and her
wings are the most powerful in terms of strength, but isn't the best flyer.
becomes friends with the scout because of this.
female || 17 || reserved

Test Subject Five: the healer
he is the quietest and kindest of them all, but very good at anything
science-based. he used it for healing, however The Institute aims to
push him into chemical warfare. not the best at fighting, so it is the
team's duty to protect him, for if they are injured during battle, he is
the most important person for ensuring their recovery.
male || 17 || open

Test Subject Six: the scout
she is the team's bet flyer, and the best at maneuvering in the sky.
picks this up quicker then the others in training. used as the scout,
for she is the best at evading detection, as well as injury from bullets
if potentially attacked.
female || 17 || reserved

this is still a kind of WIP so please bear with me while i edit c: however feel free to reserve!

Re: wings: The Institute

Are there still openings?
If so, I believe I would like to join!!

Re: wings: The Institute

I'd be interested in this for sure, if it gets off the ground. It seems a lot of the really cool RP's these days are suffering from a certain groundedness. Hopefully this'll be able to take flight.

Terrible puns aside, I'd certainly love to reserve the healer, only with the question of, does it have to be a male? If so, that's perfectly fine, and I wouldn't mind. I'll hold back my character FC for a moment, but I'm considering something along the lines of Dane Dehaan, or some other young-ish blonde kid. Though, as I'm prone to change as time goes on, we'll have to see.

Basically, I'm interested, but have yet to really settle on anything.

Re: wings: The Institute

'Kay, great. So basically, is the fighter named Four, the leader named One, etc., or can you choose whatever number?

Re: wings: The Institute

both are reserved! thanks for the interest ^^ also korruption, yes they have no idea what their names are, so their number is their name for now. they will probably choose later on c:
also feel free to take your time on sheets. I am personally rather busy so mine won't be up for a while aha.
curse you real life responsibilities! thanks again cx

Re: wings: The Institute

Hello! Do you mind if I reserve the fighter (#4)? Face claim is Lana Condor. Thank you ^^

Just for confirmation, the characters have no idea what their real names are, right?

Re: wings: The Institute

Hey, there. primarily looking for an RP to get into again. And as long as it's modern fantasy then my attention is immediately drawn. with that said, I'd like to reserve the scout with the face claim of Devon Jade if that's okay.
