Omega Directive OOC

Post by Kai » Wed Oct 26, 2011 8:31 pm

Sometime in the future, 'visitors' began appearing on earth. They blended in, living with Earth's society, unknown among the humans. Part of an Alien race known as Citabrians, these Visitors were here to survey the land and find a place where the Citabrians could live. The plan- invade the Planet Earth, subdue the natives, and use it as a replacement for their own dying planet.

However, some of these surveyors came to love the earth. They lived among the humans, as humans, and realized there was a much more peaceful way to do things. Slowly, these Surveyors gathered, and confided in certain humans. They banded together, and formed a secret society, known as the Omega Directive. Their goal was to do what they could to stop the invasion and inevitable war, and instead find a way to peacefully coexist. For several years, they worked upon the earth, secretly going to the national leaders to plead them and tell them what was going on.

At first, the Omega Directive was ridiculed and kept quiet, but, then the scientists began to notice things heading toward Earth. Starships. a Technology entirely beyond anything that the Earth could bring to bear, and the Governments frantically banded together, hoping for strength in numbers. The formed the Earth Coalition Forces, and did what they could to ready themselves for war.

Desperate for something that could stop the war, the Omega Directive searched high and low, wanting at any technology that the ECF did not have, that could help form a buffer between the ECF and the Citabrians. What they stumbled upon would change the game entirely. Hidden inside a mountain, an ancient structure was discovered, buried for centuries, possibly Millennia. It contained Large humanoid Mechanized armors, each unit possessing technology of a level on par with the best of what the Citabrians had to offer. these were kept hidden, with the highest secrecy, waiting until the perfect moment that they could be used to Prevent war.

When the Citabrians arrived, it was somewhat chaotic. Scared, the ECF attacked the first machines that descended upon the planet, and found that they actually had a power over these first small machines, and were able to halt the Citabrians for the moment, starting up negotiations. These, of course, went sour very quickly as the Citabrians began deploying something stronger, and, the Omega Directive decided it was time to make their move.

Stunning both sides, the Omega Directive was initially successful in pausing the war, but it would only be temporary. The ECF quickly found out what the Omega Directive had done, and began uncovering Humanoid Armored Mecha of their own, and they began to wage a war that the Omega Directive could not stop. In fact, it caused the Citabrians to pull out all the stops, and bring their own Mechanized armored battle suits to the field. In the ensuing chaos, The Omega Directive is doing whatever it can to try and once again halt the war and bring the Citabrians and Humans together in peace.

But can they?

You are a Civilian. This war is something you never wanted, and you just wish the aliens and military would stop fighting. You fled, from city to city, finally setting in Coulee, a small village hidden in the mountains, far from the war. Your life is finally peaceful again, and you hope that by being out of the way, you'll be able to just live out your life without worrying.

Little do you know that the War will soon make its way right to your doorstep, where you thought you were far enough away to stay safe. Fleeing with the locals to a place they've used as shelter for generations, You and a few others will become curious, and start to explore the haven caves, stumbling upon something that will change your life forever a second time.

******************************

You have a few options at the start- You can either be a regular civilian, running from the war, a Member of the Omega Directive, on a scouting mission of some kind. You can be one of the Surveyors, or just a normal Human. Finally, You can be a non-affiliated Surveyor, just trying to live your life, or maybe you've just arrived.

If you want to be a Member of the Omega Directive or a Surveyor, Please contact me, Kai, either via PM or on IRC.

You won't start off with your Mecha, but we will find them fairly soon. If you want art for your Mecha, you must Acquire it yourself through whatever means you have. Please wait a bit before creating your mecha, as I need to do a little bit more work on the general types of Mecha that will be available, though I'll leave the Visual descriptions up to you guys.

Name: Donovan Sanders
Age: 18
Gender: Male

History:
Donovan Sanders was, more or less, another highschool student getting ready for a graduation party that had never come due to the war. Being only so young, or old depending on view point, there wasn't really much to say about him or his life. He was simply another student, with average grades, average friends and an average, comfortable life behind and ahead of him. Due to the war getting too close to comfort, he and his family fled for someplace safer than their city; Coulee. Sadly, the journey ended with their grisly deaths, Donovan being the only survivor.

Personality:
He more or less comes off as a lazy, good-for-nothing as he doesn't actively seek out things to do to help others around. However, when given a task by someone else (or in a rare instance where he gives himself something to do) he attacks it in a methodical and relentless manner. Donovan is polite and well mannered despite the fact he may seem a bit unwelcoming. He is however, a little on the dull and listless side in terms of persona.

Appearance:
Like the rest of his life, Donovan is more or less average in appearance. He has chestnut colored hair neatly combed back, and a face that doesn't stay in anybody's memory for long. The fact that his eyes are brown as well also help him blend in greatly.

Name: Nolan Brodie
Age: 34
Gender: Male
Height: 6'0”
Weight: 178lbs

History: Nolan was born in a small town on the South edge of the UK. As a child he always enjoyed learning about history when he was growing up, or at least he really enjoyed the images that were in his textbooks. So from a young age Nolan aspired to become a photographer who would travel around and document history with his camera. As such it was no surprise when he went to collage with intent on becoming a photojournalist. While is collage he met Karen, the woman he quickly fell in love with. His time with Karen were the happiest he had ever had.
Nolan ended up having to give up on his dream of becoming a photojournalist when he received the news that Karen was pregnant and he was going to be a father. All in all this did not bother him too much for, as he saw it, he was giving up one dream in return for another. So when his and Karen’s scholarships were dropped, the two moved to across the ocean and settled in a small apartment in New York City. Not too long afterwards Nolan’s daughter Abigail was born.
It wasn’t an easy life for the new family, but it was a happy life. Nolan worked as a photographer for a small local newspaper while Karen wrote articles for the same newspaper on occasion. Even with the meager life style Nolan knew that he had found his happiness as he was able to live with the woman of his dreams and watch his little girl grow up.
Then some years later the Citabrians attacked, and Nolan’s happiness was taken away from him. When the attack came Nolan was out of town taking some photos for an article. He had no time to get home and grab Karen and Abigail before the town was besieged. None-the-less Nolan raced back to his small apartment while all the occupants of Lower New York City rushed the other direction. Once he had finally reached his apartment block he was distraught to find his building in shambles and on fire. Without a second thought the man rushed into to the building to find his family.
When Nolan came out of the building he was cut, battered, and burnt. All he carried in his hands were a photo album and a camera, and his once happy eyes were now vacant. The time between leaving his apartment and arriving in Coulee was all a blur to Nolan. Only finding out later that he had been picked up by a caravan heading North.
Now Nolan lives from day to day, occasionally defaulting back to photography as a means of occupying his mind and time. In recent times now he still feels sad and lonely, but his depression has subsided into bitterness and weariness. Deep down he wishes for something to change, for something to give him a purpose again.

Personality: Nolan is fairly aloof in nature. He is for the most part pretty easygoing and well-mannered, or at least he was prior to the war. Now he has a habit of coming across as world-weary, bitter, and even a little depressed. After the loss of his family Nolan also carries little regard for personal well being, as reflected in his shaggy appearance and his disregard for his own safety.

Appearance: Nolan stands at just above six feet in height with a fair build. He has an unkempt look about him with untidy mouse brown hair that falls just past his eyes, a constant state of stubble on his chin, and an almost constant tired look on his face.

Name: Oriza DuPont
Age: 18
Gender: Female

History: Raised in a home of two go-getters who earned their wealth- not inherited it- Oriza was taught that everything you want must be obtained through your own soliciting. This led to a spree of achievements all throughout her schooling: a ribbon in almost every science fair, member of her middle school's champion science team, winner of multiple spelling bees, varsity soccer and volleyball her freshman year, and a number of other extracurricular accomplishments. She was voted Homecoming Queen her senior year (WITHOUT cheating), and her class named her 'Most Likely to Join the Fortune 500.' A couple months after graduating, the war struck up, dashing Oriza's dream of operating the most successful non-profit organization committed to solving nothing short of world hunger and homelessness. Realizing sometimes to the best way to lead is by example: one must get down in the trenches with the frontline soldiers (very figuratively and somewhat literally) and prove anything is possible. Following this ideal and a few murmured rumors, she has come to Coulee seeking individuals willing to take a stand for a peaceful solution.

Personality: Ambitious, hardworking, and passionate would be the most general traits to describe her. Oriza is also well known for her compassion, her lack of tolerance for bigotry- especially sexism, and inability to tell a lie. People who have met her just once know it is dangerous to broach matters of opinion with her if you don't wish to have a heated debate. She easily takes to positions of authority, but lacks the traditional egoism of most natural-born leaders. All her words are spoken with confidence, and she is difficult to unsettle. Peaceful and passive by nature, she very rarely resorts to anger.

Appearance: She's rather tall at 5'11", weighing in at 140 lbs. Her hair is a lovely auburn, more red in the sunlight and a soft brown in dimmer settings. Her eyes are a dark emerald green, and quite dazzling in the sun. Her bangs sweep right to left, framing a thin pair of rectangular glasses when she chooses not to wear contacts. Typically the remainder of her hair is in a ponytail or bun. Her attire is well-tailored to the environment, typically conveying the image of a hiker- an idea her lean frame could certainly support.
