See Cyb sweatdropping a river and drown the whole world.
See everyone else prepare for a flood and nuke Cyb.
See the toasty Cyb ask a question.
MR, with the debut of Kyte Soran, maybe this would be a good time to explain rules on the creation of boss characters? Maybe? Retry or Fail?
And IMO actually, since Sam was around a really good bit the last time with that QM armor, it should be okay to let Aries keep it --- if the shoe still fits, after all --- provided she doesn't actively break the RPG rules anyway...

Carol: "Asok, you are the winner of a prestigeous award for attendance." Asok: "My name is misspelled...as an obscenity." Carol: "Typo." Asok: "Typo!? You added four letters!!!"
Well fine, you got me. Here is a regular, and familiar character. Hey, since you guys put up a boss, does this mean I can use Caleb? I just want to see Cyb's reaction when he gets approved...
Plus I have Eliard Damodred and Eve, who I never got to use last time. I love being evil.

Background/Bio: A lot of changes have occured in the person we knew as the commander of the Shining Hope. Following her rescue of Heather and subsequent splitting of paths with Cybrionne she decided to finish her rivalry with Alec Orome.
Returning to Tokyo, where the Shining Hope had permenately landed, she tracked down Alec. The Lunarion had returned to Earth following his expulsion from the Colonies and new orders from the Moon. They met outside Kyoto and agreed to fight to the death. The fight lasted two hours. At first Alec had the upper hand, Kristina receiving minor wounds, until the fighting moved to close quarters. She managed to stab him through the shoulder before he sliced off her right arm. Critically injured, Alec toyed with her, gouging out both her eyes. As he was about to kill her, she fired her VSBRs, knocking her out of his grasp and away from harm for a short moment. She fired her rifle at as wide a range it could be fired at, leveling a mile of area around her and injuring Alec. He tried to shoot her with his beam rifle but she, using her ears to track Alec, shot a concentrated beam, killing him and ending the threat of Alec Orome forever.
Critically injured she entered a coma and was found by the Shining Hope crew. Rushed in to the hospital she was barely saved. She remained comatose for two months. Upon awakening she gave her last orders. She had a cybernetic arm installed to replace her old one, as well as cybernetic eyes, and took the new Sword Calamity armor that had been found. With that finished she destroyed her old morpher armor and left Japan.
Recently she has been seen wandering North America, looking for her old friend Shade, concerning a pressing matter...

FB, go ahead and do a basic write up, but hold off on posting the bios until we figure out just how we're goiing to set up non-GM bosses. For the sake of keeping the story coherant we're putting more limits on them than last time.
Okay. I won't post them yet, don't worry. Alec was my only boss last time, and I've gotten better in my RP skills, so expect Eliard(and my demon of a girl Eve) to work well. And just ask Cyb about Caleb.
I've moved Omega into NPC status and am creating another character.
Name: Christopher Riley Age: 24 Sex: Male Hair Color & Style: Short, dark blue hair Eye Color: Brown Height: 6'3" Weight: 185 lbs Race: Human Armor: Tallgeese II Armor Type: External Armaments: -Dober Gun -2x Beam Saber Favorite Weapon: Saber Likes: Honor, being out in the field, pizza and beer Dislikes: Boredom, being out in the middle of nowhere, his last assignment Background/Bio:
Chris Riley is a 1st Lieutenant in the UEG Army currently assigned to the Atlas project site. Or rather, he was.
After discovering just what was being built inside of the elevator, Chris tried to get a message out to the UEG Council, but was caught. He was accused of treason and locked up, slated to be executed in a few days, after a heavily biased trial convicted him. He was inside his cell during the disturbance caused by Dai, Zero and Kyte, and was able to free himself in the commotion. Managing to get ahold of his armor, he launched for the mainland.
Chris is a surprisingly 'normal' person for a trooper. He joined the military during the reconstruction efforts and was singled out for OCS training. After graduating with flying colors, he was 'gloriously' assigned to the Atlas project, where he did nothing but sit on his ass and pretend to be important. He feels deeply betrayed by General Khall and the other soldiers of the Atlas site for what has happened, but can take no official action against them as he's been branded as a traitor.
Aries agrees and has already thought ahead of you guys. The 'Mantha has been retired, if for no other reason that Sam has become a much stronger Newtype. Plus that, that suit probably has a lot of bad memories for her.
Name: Samantha Piper, Captain, AOLID Age: 27 Sex: Female Hair Color & Style: Blue, shoulder-length and curled at the ends Eye Color: Blue Height: 6'2" Weight: 141lbs Race: Human Newtype Armor Name: AMS-120X Geara Doga Psycommu Test Type Armor Type: Exosuit Armaments: beam shotrifle w/grenade launcher x 1, funnel x 6, grenade launcher x 2, beam saber x 2, scattering mega particle beam gun x 1 Favorite Weapon: Beam Shotrifle, Funnels Likes: Julius Whistler (boyfriend), piano music, stuffed animals, old AD era comedy movies, alcohol, jelly beans Dislikes: Death, Yamato, anti-Colonial factions, hangovers, fanatics Theme Song: "It's The End Of The World" by REM Background/Bio: Do you have the time...To listen to me whine...About nothing and everything all at once? Captain Samantha Piper is the only daughter of now-Brigadier General Johnathon Piper, and both of them are members of the Angels of Liberation Intelligence Division, formerly known as Colonial Intelligence. Sam was a Colonial Intelligence Trooper sent to Earth three years ago in order to neutralize all anti-Colonial MS Trooper activity on the planet, a canard presented by the naive Sam's more canny father to work off some of her emotions resulting from the deaths of her four brothers, emotions that could be very dangerous in a Newtype as powerful as her.
After the April Fools Day Massacre, a new Chancellor was elected to the executive seat of the Colonial government, who, in light of opening peace talks with the battle-ravaged Earth, overhauled the military, rescinding much of its offensive capabilities and renaming it the more charitable-sounding Angels of Liberation, a name which much of the military quietly hates. Chancellor Hugo Seratard, however, left much of the former Colonial Intelligence assets alone, making AOLID (still called Colonial Intelligence by its defiant members) the government's new hammer.
Sam, now promoted to Captain following several successful missions, has matured some, becoming an exemplary MS Trooper, one of the best in Intelligence Division. She eventually decided to move beyond her old Quin Mantha armor, having her boyfriend, Julius Whistler, modify a new MS armor from a Geara Doga suit, common for Intelligence Division MS Troopers nowadays. The result was the Geara Doga Psycommu Test Type, a Newtype-use armor based somewhat off the Sazabi armor of the long-dead Cho Sonchiro. Sam enjoys the irony, that a "child" of Cho's dreaded Sazabi helps her to track down her Yamato enemies.
Despite her new rank, Sam is still something of a field operative, and long ago forced her superiors, including her father, to take her more seriously, especially after single-handedly wiping out the Tropen Troopers of South America while being lent to the UEG during their South American campaign. (According to her, she wasn't alone, yet both governments' official records state she was. Reports from some of the Tropen Trooper survivors of a Blitz Gundam Trooper working in conjunction with her are still...unsubstantiated.) Sam has volunteered repeatedly for missions having to do with the Yamato Corporation, given how she was one of the minor players in the events leading up to the fall of the company.
Her skills as a Newtype have increased dramatically as well. Part of her maturation has been in the development of her Newtype powers. Three years ago, she was only able to control remote weaponry such as funnels. Now, her skills have branched off into psychic empathy, telepathy, some precognition, and advanced control of remote weapons (she is attempting to learn how to override a less powerful Newtype's control over their own funnels, with no success and no sign that such a tactic is even possible). Sam is slowly but enthusiastically beginning to develop into one of the most powerful Newtypes in the Earthsphere.
Sam lives with her mechanic boyfriend Julius Whistler on the Corsica Colony during her off-time, but the both of them have an apartment on the Moon for when she is on-duty. There are also disavowed reports of him being with her during some of her missions, which they say can't make any sense, given his status as a civilian. What's worse, rumor has it that she is somehow involved with the mysterious "Dark Lightning" Blitz Gundam Trooper, a phenomenon also disavowed by the UEG and Colonial governments, but whispered fearfully amongst MS Troopers.
When asked about him on the record, Sam jokingly calls him her "imaginary friend", who came into being because of her developing Newtype powers.
The Earthsphere media doesn't quite buy that.
Name: Julius Whistler Age: 34 Sex: Male Hair Color & Style: Black, short, spiked and swept back, with green tips Eye Color: Green Height: 5'10" Weight: 139lbs Race: Human, Cherokee Armor Name: GAT-X207 Blitz Gundam (No Phase-Shift, No Mirage Colloid. What, you think Aries is crazy, boy?!) Armor Type: Exosuit Armaments: "Gleipnir" anchor, mounted on left forearm, can be fired out on a line; "Trikeros" offense/defense system, mounted on right arm, featuring: 50mm high-energy beam rifle, power rating unknown; beam saber; lancer darts Favorite Weapon: “Trikeros” Shield Likes: Samantha Piper (girlfriend), motorcycles, working with his hands, creating and designing new MS Dislikes: Yamato, stupid people, people who fight for no good reason, Theme Song: "Come Out And Play" by Offspring Background/Bio: The space between...What's wrong and right...Is where I'll be hiding, waiting for you... The last three years have been very good to Julius Whistler, the last survivor of the Neo-Shogi Tai, the famous doomed faction of righteousness from Earth.
Whistler, formerly a motorcycle and illegal MS armor mechanic from Earth who accidentally fell in with Colonial Intelligence operative Samantha Piper and the android Vorn and helped to get political asylum for the Native American Tinde Jicarilla tribe in space, is up to his old tricks. After relocating to space, Whistler has thrived, setting up a motorcycle repair shop on the new Corsica Colony. As it was on Earth, Whistler's shop is a front for his real passion: building, repairing and customizing MS Trooper armor, although this time, it's as good as legal. Though shady characters do come to his shop for MS Trooper armor, and Whistler does sell it to them, the information he gleans from them is passed along to Colonial Intelligence, better aiding them to track, locate and neutralize renegade MS Troopers. Whistler has kept his informant/contractor status under wraps, to the point that the very people he sells MS armor to don't even know he's selling them out with it.
Whistler is the boyfriend of AOLID's Samantha Piper, and well-acquainted with the organization despite being a civilian. A deal worked out between him and the government three years ago has made him a ward of the state, in exchange for his help as a contractor with future MS designs and modifications, a bargain both parties have upheld well. Whistler has prospered in his new position, and even become a better MS Trooper by helping to test-pilot some of the new MS armors he's collaborated on.
Interestingly, he has also put his newfound skills to some use. Off the record, Whistler has also accompanied his girlfriend on some of her missions, especially on ones having to do with remnants of the Yamato Corporation (which Whistler absolutely loathes), Hunters, and MS Trooper warlords on Earth. His new Blitz Gundam armor, designed and built by him personally, has aided him tremendously. A special modification Whistler has made is to cover most of his features with a faceplate, leaving only his eyes revealed, which has hidden his identity during such missions and given him the nickname "Dark Lightning". Whistler has wryly likened his new double life to that of an old AD-era superhero, secret identity and all. "Dark Lightning" is a notorious MS Trooper wild card, a mysterious avenger sent by the Angels of Liberation to exterminate evil, according to his admirers, and he's become something of a propaganda tool for the government, though his existance is not exactly confirmed nor denied.
Whistler, embarassed by all the attention, is still trying to discuss with Sam how to deal with his "fame", as well as trying to find the right time to ask her to marry him.
