Things about me

Writes with left hand, but does everything else right-handed.
Absolutely refuses to drink anything with ice in it.
When stressed, he will only speak out of the corner of his mouth.

Competition.
Parties/Loud events
Pasta.

HATES
Awkwardness.
Complete silence.

STRENGTH
Years of practice, outside of Yggdrasil Online, with swordplay allows for muscle memory to react in a fight. This allows him to plan and strategize while fighting.
Situational Awareness is pretty refined.
His strength gives him exceptional speed when fighting with his Tech Blade.

WEAKNESS
Not very agile.
Can get too competitive at times.
Somewhat prideful and will not allow for others to fight his fight or help him in a one on one battle.


PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION
RJ kind of mirrors his in game avatar(Reaper). There are some key differences though. For one, he isn’t quite as tall, 6’0” rather than 6’3”. His hair is also different: not quite as straight, shorter, and is more blond than brown. He isn’t as toned either.



A bit about myself


PERSONALITY
RJ is high energy at all times, even in his speech; usually talking at a quick pace and not really bothering to slow down if someone gets left behind. When it comes to the wounded though, it is not uncommon to see him fight to get them to safety or try his best to defend them till someone else can. Prideful and even arrogant are words that paint a good picture of him; often taking stupid risks outside of battle and letting no one fight for him inside of it, completely refuses to fight with anyone in a one-on-on battle and may even harm those trying to help him if they intervene. Competition and competitiveness is just in his blood, rarely will he back down from a challenge. Even though he can seem very callous at times, RJ is actually quite kind and being judgmental just doesn’t fit him. If you treat him right, he’ll treat you right.

HISTORY
Its hard to know where exactly to start. I suppose the simple answer is early memories, but most of those for RJ were uneventful. His childhood was normal at least that is what he though, he went to school and made friends, stayed after did some sports or school activities. His family was normal as well; A well-respected father who made a career of medical research, a mother who also had her own career as a librarian, no brothers or sisters. His father spent a lot of his time in the labs, almost never at home. His mother spent a lot of her time reading to and talking with RJ when she wasn't at work either. He never really realized that he spent most of his time at school.

Simple was always boring though, right? Well, RJ certainly thought so. His life was easy and boring. He wanted to do something that involved challenge, even if it was just a quick distraction from everyday life. So, when he was about eleven he begged his mother to allow him to start taking swordplay lessons. Eventually his mother let up and agreed to it. It eventually consumed him... RJ that is, the swordplay and fighting took up all of his free time. The thrill, the rush, the competition, the close combat, and the responsibility. He still kept up with his school work though, that was the only condition his mother gave him.

When he graduated though, he almost put away his sword. He had to grow-up and there was no fighting it. He went off to college learned about computer science and programming. He had to get a job and make a life for himself, live on his own, and find his own way. Not to say he didn't pick it up when he was stressed or bored. His life kind of be came a mixture of computers and the occasional spar -- if he could find one -- or self-training lesson. Then YggOn came out, it was all the rage and everyone played it. RJ did come to really enjoy computers over the years and he it did incorporate his love for sword fighting. He only saw one clear option at that point; it was time to play the game, time to see why so many people loved it.

So begins...

Roderick J. Enrhyme : Hexion City

Buzzing and whirling of vehicles echoed lightly through the streets. Every now and again a small wave of disturbed air from one of the overhead flying cars would roll by. The light from the lowering sun bounced off of the tall mirrored glass buildings to shine down gently on the streets. RJ loved this city, Higonomiya City, it was always so full of life or noise that almost always made a smile pull on the corners of his mouth. Sometimes they would even have him in a full grin that probably made him look half insane to anyone actually paying attention in the crowded streets. Today was no different, he strolled through the streets with a purposeful stride, the smile playing on the edge of his lips.

A ringtone imitating "Soul Man" played in RJ's ears as a vibration rumbled against his chest. With a quick reach into the pocket, he pulled out flat panel of what looked to be a light-up plexiglass edged in a smooth black silicone and a pair of glasses. The object in his hand rumbled again, before he glassed on at the name flashed over the light-up screen. As he drew his a thumb over the screen, pulls the phone up barely in front of his face, and puts on the glasses, he answered with a quick "RJ here, what's going on?"

RJ's parents greeted him for their weekly call, waving nonchalantly at their son in his augmented reality glasses. They chatted happily back and forth as he wove through the people and streets as he made his way toward his apartment. Though the voices were loud enough to be heard, they weren't overpowering; he still could hear the lively city sounds echoing faintly around him. His gaze shifted to look through the images of his parent so he could keep track of where he was when he could. The floating street sign caught his eye. He said goodbye to his parents as he pulled the glasses off and shoved them with his phone back into their respected pocket.

A sign flashed above his apartment as he turned off the no less crowded sidewalk and towards the doors of an everyday apartment complex. It wasn't anything fancy, but it wasn't outrageous in price so it was good enough for him. The doors slid open and he bowed his head at the woman at the front desk. The uniformed lady smiled and bowed her head back to him as his feet carried him to the elevators. A beep sounded in response to "Going up," and the doors to the elevator pulled back. "Twenty-third floor."

RJ finally stepped up to his door and planted his hand firmly on a panel in the middle of the door. His hand left the panel just as the door unlatched and vanished to the left. As soon as his foot hit the carpet, a large black cat rammed her full body into his leg happily and the lights flicked on. The high, vibrant purr of the feline as she weaved through his legs made RJ snicker. A quick pat was all she need before she was sated and ran back to her spot on his sofa and plopped down, still purring happily. With a savage grin plastered on his face, RJ walked over to snatch up his visor. The couch gave a small thump as he plopped down onto it, opposite the now dozing cat. Then there was nothing besides a blank screen and the words 'Start up?' flashing lightly. "Let kick it up!" roared RJ.

Outside sounds and feeling slowly fade, the machinery pushing out everything for a moment. Data, code, lines of information all swirled around in erratic patterns and styles. Some of them were less random than others, going straight to their source or destination, others bounced around from place to place without even a second to pause. Slowly a world began to form, everything started to congeal into a platform, then a road, then a building, then a city as far as the eye could see. His lost sense started coming back. He could hear others running and yelling, he could smell the new city, the gentle breeze that seemed to always be there. He arrived at Hexion City, his guild's main base. "It's going to be a good night!"

Roderick J. Enrhym : Hexion City


A small chuckle escaped RJ for a moment, his eyes darting from place to place in the illuminated city. It was always bright in Hexion; this city in YggOn was just as alive as Higonomiya, aside from the fact that a lot of the life was artificial. Not that that mattered much to him, as long as there was noise and light. Someone called out something in the background, but RJ was still too hypnotized by the city. A hand grasped his shoulder a moment later and snapped him back from his dream-like start.

"Reaper, man, you going to space like every time that when you get into the game?" A man in black, chitinous-looking plate armor looked at RJ in mock disappointment. He was easily the same height at RJ and probably quiet a few pounds heavier due to muscle. His hair was cropped in a short, black crew-cut, and nose was bent slightly probably due to it being broken over and over again.

He nodded at the man and began walking down the street, motioning to follow, "Bet your ass I am, Koda. And I told you, call me RJ, I'm not depressing enough to be called by Reaper." He laughed at his own joke and clapped a hand on a shoulder plate of Koda's armor. "I'm headed to Festo, you gonna tag along?"

"Nah, I have to head back out to the front lines, I thought that's why you logged in." Koda looked up to him, "I thought that's why you logged on."

A look of minor annoyance flashed over his face for a moment, silence settling for a moment. A sign broke the silence and RJ shook his head, "Nope, wasn't even told about it. Not heartbroken about it though, probably just being too much of a bad ass or too stubborn. Eh, who knows?" The words came out faster than he wanted them too, but he just shrugged to make himself look calm instead of annoyed. "I got better things to do anyway. Oh and don't hurt yourself trying to beat my record. I set the bar high last time." A smirk curled his mouth as he turn to the street and stopped.

Laughter bubbled out from both of them and Koda shook his head, "You know, you're not the Hero of Hexion, not yet, and when have I not beaten you 'Hi-score'?" The voice was mocking, but it was all in good fun.

Rj just grinned at the man as he pulled out a small beacon and mashed the button. "Good, give me another challenge, and I'll crush whatever you set."

"Sure thing, Reaper."

"Give 'em hell, Brute"

The air around the two hummed low as a sleek, crimson hover bike swooped down and idled in front of RJ. He slung his leg over the bike, giving a quick wave to Koda, and pulled a pair of goggles onto his face. The bike lurched forward as soon as his hands gripped the accelerator and speed off along the street for a moment before pulling up into the air. A smile fought for control, but it would be a mistake to smile fully with those pesky digital bugs and all. The sight of Hexion from the air was magnificent, though, he could focus of that later too. He needed to get to Festo while there were still a lot of shops open. Preferably a mechanic or inventor of some kind. "Set destination: Festo City." he commanded and the bike pulled a little left to correct the direction. With nothing else, other than a few other flying vehicles, in his way the trip would take no time at all. The air got colder it seemed as the bike began to increase speed at the slightest twist of the accelerator.


Festo City


RJ scratched the back of his head, confused about where in Festo he was exactly. "Damn it, maybe I should become more familiar with these places before I come to them. Though I suppose that really isn't my style." He rambled to himself has the walked the streets in a rather lost fashion. With a shrug he brought his hand to lock over and rest on his head as he wondered around the city aimlessly.

Roderick J. Enrhyme : Festo City


Rj was still very lost in Festo, but he guessed that he at least ended up in the mechanic's district. There was a lot of noise coming from the what he suspected to be workshops. No one was outside though and he really didn't feel like interrupting anything important. A ginger-haired girl bolted from a a nearby building with a scope in her hand and a droid following closely behind. He quirked a brow at the scene just as a man in a long coat walked out of the same building, walking off in some other direction. "Man, this place is odd. The streets are so empty." RJ mumbled to himself as he started walking towards where the woman was headed.

A rapid beeping rang in RJ's ears, the tone of an urgent message from the guild. He sigh heavily and slipped on a pair of glasses that light up, "Open message : Urgent Helios Infinitum." A wall of semi transparent text appeared in his vision reading:

"All Helios Infinitum are to report back to HQ immediately for a conference. We just got word of a possible attack and we plan to crush whoever is responsible. Hurry up, assholes."

Charming word from the leader, even though he would most likely never send the message himself. RJ shook his head, rolled his eyes, and pocketed the glasses, if it was really important there would have been more expletives. He just shrugged, then quickly looked around, he lost sight of the woman while reading the 'urgent' message.

"Well, son of a bitch." RJ chided himself and leaned against a building. He pinched the bridge of his nose and began to think.

*Bzzz! Bzzz!*

Piper snapped out of her muse (Hey, she ain't one to quit at the first problem.), noting that something was making quite a racket. “Ma'am, your earpiece.” Rack announced, closely observing what its creator had been doing with the 'temporarily stolen' scope.

Nothing much, besides attempting to hard-wire the device. Rack could only hope that Piper's curiosity hadn't ruined the damn thing. Not something she'd do on purpose, but Piper had a way of... not quitting until she had found a solution to the problem, sometimes that meant dissecting the entire creation. Luckily, she hadn't gone that far, just rewiring some things was all.

Meanwhile, Piper had tapped her earpiece, a list of text appearing on her goggles reading: Urgent message. A mail that had been signed with the guild name, probably important jazz if it was urgent. With another tap, the girl allowed the message to be read in a computer-generated voice. Something that she always did, because reading messages was too troublesome, and Piper could never be bothered actually reading on any details. Hearing was her shtick, not reading.

Aside from that, she couldn't fix up that scope with a blob of text before her eyes now, could she?

“Urgent message for all available Bio Walls members; Report to the city of Norais as soon as possible.” The message blurred into Piper's ear. Report? Why? Ugh... She did not feel like going, but... There was little else to do if all other active members were going. Speaking of which-

“Rack. Guild business, let's go.” The girl stated with a wide smile, rising from her seat as she packed her tools, sliding her bag over her shoulder as she did so.

“Steve'll want his gizmo back, don't you think?”

Rack couldn't agree more, and after locking any entrance to their personal workshop, both the droid and the mechanic traced their footsteps back to Steve's (Shard's) place.

“Knock, knock! Hey, I'm back!” Without consent, Piper pushed the door. Locked. “Hey, don't you want your gizmo back?” She yelled, hastily looking around her for any suitable way to either, A) break-in, or B) Hopes of finding Steve.

Meanwhile, Rack had been curiously buzzing around, noting a stranger just... 'hanging around' in the mechanic district. The droid was certain the man wasn't a local, for it remembered most everyone that was part of Festo City. Rack was about to approach him, but turned its attention back to Piper, who was not far from breaking down the door. “Ma'am, could you please act with patience? He probably left.”

Roderick J. Enrhyme : Festo City


A sigh escaped RJ as he slowly opened his eyes, his hand falling back to his side in exasperation, this was just getting a little ridiculous, but something caught his eye. The little robot was just turning away from him and zipping onward, while spouting out something along the lines of, “Ma'am, could you please act with patience? He probably left.”

Without too much thought, RJ started running after the little droid as the sounds of someone banging against a door, probably trying to force their way in. He blinked as he saw the ginger-haired woman trying to break down to the workshop he watched her run from just a few minutes before. She was yelling something about someone wanting a gizmo back. His brows pulled up in a surprised arch at the girl beating on the door. He crossed his arms over his chest, his brows becoming furrowed. This girl looked familiar, but he couldn't place it. Not that it matted much, she was trying to bust down a door.

RJ shook his head and tried to put of his friendliest smile. He cleared his throat and said calmly, "You just missed him, the guy that lives there that is," he shrugged noncommittally, "but hey, maybe the guy likes random woman breaking into his home while he's away. Kind of a boring and impractically way of getting your jollies. Not here to judge though." He snickered at his own joke and kept his gaze on the woman.

Yep... No response whatsoever. Either this guy got a kick out of playing lame-ass jokes, or he really had left the building. Neither possibilities were amusing ones, though. With an elongated sigh released from her mouth, Piper twirled away from the door, arms aligned with her body as her left foot kicked some imaginary dust from the ground.

“Ma'am we shoul-” Rack was cut off, a deep, male voice introducing himself. The same man that the droid had planned on approaching. It was wary, not completely sure what to think of this stranger.

“You just missed him, the guy that lives there that is, but hey, maybe the guy likes random woman breaking into his home while he's away. Kind of a boring and impractically way of getting your jollies. Not here to judge though.”

Piper couldn't help but giggle at that terrible joke. “Heehee~ Naaw! Steve doesn't seem like a primitive whacko-buffoon to me.” Piper raised her gaze, the ground was starting to get boring anyway, locking at the presence of a... familiar-looking man. Something rang a bell, although the ginger couldn't quite put her finger on it. Fellow member, maybe?

Still, Piper couldn't stop herself from smiling like a content cat who just got his dinner served. “Well, his loss. Means more time t'give his gizmo a fix'em-up.” The girl said, walking closer, scanning the stranger from head-to-toe until she was mere inches away from him. He was rather... tall, not even standing on her toes would make them an equal length.

Piper stretched out her arms, forming a looking-glass with her hands as if to observe the man from a distance. “Hmm...” She sighed, lowering her arms to rest on her hip as she cocked her head sideways. “Do I... know you from somewhere, buddy?” Piper narrowed her eyes, trying to make contact with the man's as mental images of all who she was familiar with speeded through her brain. She leaned forward slightly, heels lifting off the ground as only toes were rooted on the concrete pavement, eyes still trying to find contact with the man's eyes. Maaaan- He was tall. “Name?”

Recognition flashed over RJ's face, but he turn his head and scratched the side of his face that the lady could see. He was trying to hide the fact that he knew the girl. Especially after she said, “Well, his loss. Means more time t'give his gizmo a fix'em-up.” He only knew one person who talked like that, Piper. He worked with her at a mechanic shop in the real world. He sniffed and looked back to Piper, a playful grin overtaking the slight smile.

“Do I... know you from somewhere, buddy?” Piper narrowed her eyes at RJ. "Name?"

Rj laughed at Piper leaning toward him and forming a looking glass with her hands. Oh, this was just a golden opportunity that he couldn't pass up. He uncrossed his arms, letting them fall back to his sides. Other than the grin, he tried his best to keep his feature's neutral and even speaking slower than he normally does to throw the girl off. He thrust his chin out, almost challengingly, "Oh I suppose I could tell you that, but I think that would make it to easy for you. I'm not into easy." He drawled, eyes locking with Piper's, "Come to think of it, you don't really look all that familiar. Nope! I doubt I even know you." He shook his head and looked to the little droid that was buzzing around.

RJ rubbed his chin casually, eying Piper almost thoughtfully, "I think if I had to give you a name though, I would name you Bubbles. Sound good to you, Short-stack?" He beamed maliciously at the small taunts. "Though, I think I should feel insulted that you don't know me!" He laced his fingers and placed them atop his head, still grinning in his playful way, he was just amused by himself.

Not into easy? What? Did she have to guess his name through a game of hints or something? Piper growled, settling her heels back on solid ground, taking a step back as her eyes kept close watch on the man's face. He grinned, as if teasing little girls was one of his hobbies. Well, if that was the case, he needed to kick-off, like, right now.

What was odd, though, was his remark on 'not recognizing' Piper. Well, of course he didn't. If he did, then the man knew Piper didn't want to play these silly games. He went on and on, glaring at the girl with that smug expression glued on his face, like he knew this was annoying the little mechanic to no end.

“I think if I had to give you a name though, I would name you Bubbles. Sound good to you, Short-stack?”

Bubbles? Short-stack? Oh how she wanted to wring this guy's neck. Those horrendous nicknames irked her so very, very much. Wait a sec- Short... stack? Aha! Got you!

Piper once again took a step forward, emerald-green eyes still fixated on the man. She tried her best to hide the smirk that her mouth had formed out of habit. She'd get him back for trying to play a game on her, that stupid-

“RJ, you jerk!” The girl cried almost stampeding, weakly shoving the man back before releasing a singular scoff, arms crossed over her chest as she took her gaze away from her real world friend. “Think you're so extremely, amazingly funny, huh?” She growled. Yeah, there was no mistake to be made here, that was RJ a full hundred percent. Only he would be sick enough to tease her like that.

“Jerk...” Piper exclaimed once more, this time softer, more like a whisper in the winds. She relaxed her arms, letting them rest beside her, a cat-grin forming on her face as she turned back to look at RJ. “Hello to you, pup!” The girl leaped, aiming at the man as she gave him a welcoming hug. “Didn't feel like telling me you played YggOn, too, huh?”

RJ just rolled his eyes as he grinned and Piper went on a rant about him being a jerk. It all sounds about right, but still he couldn't let that show. He moved with the shove lightly, instincts more than a conscious effort, to absorb the weak push before shrugging nonchalantly at Piper. Only to be hit with a hug which cause RJ to chuckle at the girl and pat her lightly on the head.

“Didn't feel like telling me you played YggOn, too, huh?”

With a tilt of his head and a small roll of his shoulders, "Eh, I can't let you know about all my secrets now can I? That would just be poor planning and tastes on my part," he teased. "Anyway, I thought it was mostly common knowledge that just about everyone played this game, damn thing is sucking up near all of my time. Too addictive!" He was back to his normal way of fast talk. He took a step back to give himself a little more room.

A beep filled his ear, another message from his guild probably, but he ignored it for the time being. "Guild is bugging me about something. And since the only thing I know about this place is that it is mostly Bio Wall territory, I am going to assume you're one of them. Anything going on with you guys?" He quirked a brow, blinking a few times at Piper. Before she could answer though, another though hit him and he brightened a little, "Oh! And I need someone to do a few things for me. Inventing and stuff like that. Magic using wackos are starting to get a little annoying on the battlefront and I'll be damn if I let any of them show me up!" He grinned and ran a hand through his messy brown hair, his voice challenging, "Think you're up to it, Piper?"

“But you didn't know I played either. Ha! Got you there.” Actually, it was common knowledge that you were better of asking who didn't play YggOn, 'cause that was the shorter answer. “You could've told me, though, saved me the surprise and all that jazz.” The girl gently entangled her fingers as she pressed them against the back of her head, her feet stepping back an inch or two.

Piper smiled, turning her attention to Rack for a brief moment who, for the time being, had been rather quiet. “Something wrong, Racky?” The girl asked, head cocking sideways a wee bit as she played around with her goggles, shifting them on and off the bridge of her nose.

The droid shook his visor, hovering closer to its creator. “Just, observing as always, ma'am.”

“Oh, okay. For a sec there I thought you were shutting down 'r something.” The girl obviously joked, grinning at her robotic companion as it emitted a robotic sigh. “Just don't do anything rash, Rack. You always turn defensive in front of stranger. Err- Your strangers, anywa-”

“Guild is bugging me about something.” RJ suddenly butted in, mentioning his guild. Something Piper was about to bug him about, although her curiosity was quickly sated by his next comment.

“And since the only thing I know about this place is that it is mostly Bio Wall territory, I am going to assume you're one of them.” Not a Bio Walls member then. Which one was he in? Not Helios, right? Biggest jerks in the game if you'd ask Pip! Never know when to simmer down and actually start planning ahead for... certain events- Actually, that would be a niche RJ fits quite nicely. To an extent, of course!

“Anything going on with you guys?” Sorry, what? Oh, yeah, Bio Walls. Piper turned her complete attention back at her friend, settling her tinted goggles tangled in her hair, her mouth opening to speak, but whatever she wanted to say was swiftly dog-piled under RJ's dominant voice.

Tinkering, eh? He needed help with tinkering. Oh, oh who could he be asking. What? Of course he'd ask Piper! If he didn't, someone would be given ear-wiggling exercise during their next shift in the workshop.

The girl could only form her trademark cat-grin, arms stretching alongside her torso as she leaned forward as she was taunted. “Need help from short-stack, don't you?” She began, her body straightening itself as one index-finger found its way to Piper's lower lip. “Gee, I'unno.” She teased, her mouth perking up in a smirk, eyes sparkling with that certain... glee. “Maaaaybe~”

She giggled at her own play, almost bunny-hopping at the thought of actually making personal gizmos. Making them in-game, that is. “Take a guess, pup. Wouldn't turn you down, would I?”

“Ma'am, not to interrupt your chat, but we should leave about now.” Rack butted in, his tone ever so serious.

“Oh, right! Guild business. Boss wants us to gather at Norais, wherever the buggery hell that is...” Piper wasn't very good with directions. Incidentally, she had never gone away from Festo, even. Sounds boring, but it really wasn't. For her, anyway. “Guess you'll be off to hear what your guild wants from you, too, eh? What guild you in, anyway, RJ?”

Roderick J. Enrhyme : Festo City


“Need help from short-stack, don't you?” Piper taunted and cause RJ to roll his eyes and smirk. Of course, he would need the help of the best mechanic he knew. Piper kept taunting him for a while and he made a get on with it motion with his hands, but it was a joke of his own. “Take a guess, pup. Wouldn't turn you down, would I?”

"Damn right you would, you'd do it just to spite me for making fun of you. Now would you actually do it anyway? Probably." He widen the smirk already there.

“Ma'am, not to interrupt your chat, but we should leave about now.” Rack butted in, his tone ever so serious.

Rj shifted his gaze to the little droid and raised a brow at it, then looked back to Piper as she explained that it was something to do with guild business. He looked away for a moment thoughts buzzing around, If both Bio Walls and Helios are being called on, this can't be good. A frown pushed the smirk down and he just stared at the ground for a moment before Piper snapped him out of his thoughts.

“Guess you'll be off to hear what your guild wants from you, too, eh? What guild you in, anyway, RJ?”

"Yeah, I suppose so. I guess it was more urgent than I thought with the whole both Helios Infinitum and Bio Walls being called on, something big must of happened. Oh yeah, if it wasn't obvious, I am Helios Infinitum, right up my alley, right?" He gave a half hearted smile, but his voice was a little lower than usual and he was speaking out of the corner of his mouth subconsciously. His hand reached up and ran itself through his messy hair. "Anyway, I'll send you a message or talk to you at work about some of the things I need built, alright?" He smiled big before he stepped forward to embrace Piper lightly, "Don't get dead," before letting go and turning around to walk back to his hover cycle.

She figured as much. Supposedly that should make the guild less of a ragtag band of jerks. The girl smiled, he was lucky to have been invited to Helios. Unlike her, who was stuck in Bio Walls, supporting and defending. Kind of her shtick, though. Piper would make a terrible Helios member, she knew nothing about combat, whether close or afar it all seemed not for her. Just being the helping hand, fixing stuff, operating cannons and whatnot was good enough for her.
