Cameo Raffle/Competition

Cameo Raffle/Competition

Postby MEK1724 » Sun Apr 06, 2014 7:45 am

Competition Ends 3rd May
*EDIT*He's so indecisive , he doesn't know if he's COMING or GOING! . 8P *EDIT*
However this is not really important . What is important is that ;
I will be randomly selecting 3 characters submitted here to become cameos .
However there are some rules

Rules
- The character/characters you submit must be from the Jieyen Balvhakara or Sharen .
- Try to stay with in the worldsetting , I am not actually judging just pulling numbers out of a hat , so you could win despite the fact that your character conflicts with the worldsetting . I say this because I will not deal with anything related to any or all parts of your character ending up being rejected by Kern because of this .
- I have no idea when or if your character will get a chance to show up . So I don't know how long you'll be waiting for . If for some bizarre reason the clan is never offered for cameos ever (I don't think this will happen) you will be given something else (like a concept art or something) .
- It is your job to make sure your character has shown up in my list . If I have missed one PM me to add it in . Hopefully I won't miss any though .
- There needs to be at least 2 entries in each clan in order for the competition to proceed .
- Only 1 entry for each of the 3 clans . You may edit your entries if you change your mind but that is all . Only one character is allowed to show up per chapter in the case where you win multiple categories .
- Characters which are not even trying to fit in the world setting will simply be barred from consideration. (To tell you what I mena I'll quote Kern : "I just fear that one will be a My little pony character or something" (in reference to the previous cameo comp) . Or at least that's what I think he said anyway.) Anyway , none of that , shame on you !

So yeah , I guess if you like Sharen Jieyen and Balvhakara , this is a pretty good competition . Everyone who likes every clan but them . . . sorry ?
Well anyway , hopefully this will work out , & have fun

oh man, what a shame to see you go. too soon, too soon! :L who will be there to link MA pages to back up arguments with me? I too have stopped coming to the forum as much as I used to, for a while now. more to the fact that I'm a little tired of it

I'm going to resubmit my male Balvh.


Name: Seethram Balvhakara

Race : Nuqrah'sharian drowolath

Gender: Male

Age: 65

Ancestry : Balvhakara mother, Beldrobbaen father

Profession : Balvhakara Sniper

Martial ability: standard close quarters combat techniques that Balvh soldiers learn, but his specialty is ranged combat with a prototype mana rifle designed for sniping.

Mana affinity : Shadow, used mainly for cover

Costume: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_bVtGlUaW-tA/T ... sign20.jpg but minus helmet & the wing attachments. Don't need those XD

Colors: Black, black and more black. His eyes are bright yellow.

Personality traits/Quirks:

--Seethram is an arrogant asshole. For example, he can be mean to females, especially Chelian Val females. He likes to lead them on for long periods of time, then suddenly drop them like rocks. What a heartbreaker!

--His philosophy is belief the power of science, action, and golem engineering rather than of faith, words and sorcery alone. If he can't hold it, see it, hear it or smell it, it's not real.

--Seethram is into maths and detail. He will calculate the probability of his targets going to different locations, the probability of his rifle backfiring, measuring how long the core charge will last, etc. Everything must be perfect.

--He favors his right eye for sniping so much that there's a dark ring around it where the scope should be (from mistakes with the prototype backfiring XD )

Favourite saying : "I don't care what kind of political bullshit got them onto the list in the first place; just gimme the name and location of the target and I'll take care of the rest."

"Your weapon needs to be cleaned, your armor is on wrong, your golem needs recalibrating--hey, even your clan is a pile of dawmere shit.... just like your face!"

"The Beldrobbaen can keep their dark moon philosophy. I'll take my gun and my golems any day!"

Inspirational pictures:
his mana rifle is modeled after a Barret M82A1 http://images6.alphacoders.com/383/383085.jpg

what Seethram looks like http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_gC3IZzsqvLg/S ... Model+.jpg

hairstyle http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee13 ... e-hair.jpg


edit: oh right, I need some kind of background.

Seethram is born and raised in Nuqrah'shareh, but has traveled between there and Chel on occasion with his mother who serves as an Illhar'dro armed escort. He prefers the cleanliness of Nuqrah to the almost medieval atmosphere of Chel'el'Sussoloth, and feels so out of place visiting family in the Beldrobbaen clan.

He's been drafted into the Chel District War, by Queen Nega'fanea's call to arms. Seethram doesn't particularly care about the whos and whys, although as a Nuqrah national he feels passionate about punishing the Sarghress and Suls responsible for messing up his perfect city. Naturally, he is par tof the youth that are about to experience their first real war--beforehand, Seethram's combat experience had only included surface expeditions and Black Sun skirmishes.

He'd love to put a few holes into Sullisin'rune brains to show the the power of science versus sorcery. Demons though... he hasn't figured out how to eliminate those yet.

His heart is hardened due to past failures with women, getting used to his power suit, simply being a male...so he has become cynical and trollish towards people. Seethram has adpoted the Balvhakara dogma of "might makes right" and putting faith into their own designs.

I did not really know you, but I'm sad to hear you're leaving. Still, I hope life treats you well, and has a lot in stock for you! =3


-Name: Perciva Val’Sharen, sister of Dindr’aen Val’Sharen
-Race : Drowolath
-Ancestry : Commoner born
-Profession : Protector Twin
-Martial ability: Fights with a gigantic mallet. Handle is about as tall as she is, for better dispersion of energy. Nobody will be able to approach her sister if all of the bones in their bodies are shattered!
-Mana affinity: Water affinity
-Costume: Standard Val Sharen armor design, but with a ‘shoulder’ cape like Nishi’s (see picture)
-Eye Colors: luminescent green
-Hair color: mid length dark hair, yellow and red streaks, like it's lit embers. Usually pulled in a ponytail, unless her sister wants to let it loose (mostly for parties)
-Skin Color: Same as her sister
-Personality traits: Both twins together could be described as young and Idealist. Perciva is the most confident of the two twins, she frequently takes the lead when they are together. Completely devoted to her sister, her wellbeing and happiness is Perciva’s absolute priority. Has no life outside of her protector twin duty; would probably commit suicide if her sister was to die.
-Quirks: Hates babies, but keeps being teased by her sister about how awesome it would be if she got pregnant. Takes her role as a protector twin very seriously, to the point of ‘interviewing’ any potential mates of her sister. Dress and acts alike to her sister, even if it means prettifying herself, which she thinks is a bit of a waste of time; People generally can’t tell them apart unless they know them VERY well.
-Favourite saying : “What are you doing trying to get that girl into your bed!? I need to test her first! She could be a secret Shargress! Or worse! A BAD LAY!”

-Short history: Born as a commoner, Perciva was selected by Nishi'kanta to serve as Dindr'aen's twin due to looking almost identical to her true born child. This being a more peaceful time, the girls were sent to Nuqrah'Shareh at a young age, both to study at their school and to serve as a non-treatening Sharen presence in the Illhar'dro's compound. Having little to no contact with their clans, they quickly adopted the mentality of their foster clan, though they still remained forever proud of their Sharen heritage. When the Nidra'chaal war happened, they chose to remain in Nuqrah, not returning to Chel'el'sussoloth for year due to their need to pursue their education AND their unwillingness to get tainted.





-Name: Sima'ayana Balvhakara
-Race : Drowolath
-Profession : Engineer
-Martial ability: None. Really really none.
-Mana affinity: Metal affinity
-Eye Colors: Orange
-Hair color: Black and short in the back, she has two chin-lenght bangs, which are dyed blond.
-Skin Color: Typical Nuqranh color
-Personality traits: Geeky, nerdy, and at times a bit oblivious, Sima is an Engineer in the purest sense. Completely intellectual, she does not have the gutso to fight, even with her clans' golem, which leads her to stay behind the front lines, where she will invariably complain about the foolishness of the golem's pilot as she repairs what has been broken.
-Quirks: Very science oriented, she has been fascinated ever since she heard about the Jaal'darya. She dreams of one day meeting with one and perhaps even, DELIGHT! Joining the clan. Until then, she collect every books about the clan she can find, though nobody knows if she realize most (if not all of them) are fiction. In her spare time, she host games of "Castle and Demons" for a few of her fellow engineers.
-Favourite saying : “You did WHAT!?” (upon learning what brought to a golem being broken)

-Short history: Born in the lowest rung of the clan, Sima has long been a deception for her family, who had hoped to make her into a warrior so as to improve their prestige and standing. It would be an understatement to say that their dreams were shattered in record time. Despite her family's disinterest, she has done well for herself in life, quickly attracting the attention of the engineering teacher in her clan's school, thank to her matching intellect and affinity. With his help, she was able to take an apprenticeship in an engineering squad as soon as her basic schooling was done, soon becoming one of their full time member and moving in a house with a few of them, essentially finding herself a new family.

Trusted in her group, she sometime take over a few assignment from her Chief Engineer, though she is content staying a simple engineer, knowing herself to lack the leadership skill required for the role. When her squad was drafted to serve in Zala'ess' coalition, she happily left her city, already dreaming of meeting her beloved Jaal'darya.

I kinda forgot I had a Sharen character in the works. Here is the pervert closet-Sarghress fangirl!


Suma’layu Vel’Sharen

Name: Suma’layu Vel’sharen

Race : Female tainted drowolath

Ancestry : Sarvswati is the mother. Father was a Nalsarkoth.

Proffesion : Nether summoner. Has an ethereal wolf-dragon hybrid demon. It’s basically a wolf with dragon wings and claws.

Martial abillity: Skilled with combat sickles. Refer to picture below.

Mana affitinity : Nether summoning. Plant/wood sorcery.

Costume: Refer to picture below.

Colors. Green hair

-Personality traits/Quirks:

1. Closet Quain’tana fangirl.

2. Considers Sarghress worthy opponents.

3. Perverted and likes eyeing attractive men and sneaking into areas where she can see men naked.

4. Tendency to flirt with attractive male enemies on the battlefield and the attractive male prisoners, hoping they’d accept her advances and have fun (aka sex) with her.

Favourite saying : Why should them being the enemy stop me from having a little fun with them?

Funny sketch idea:

1. She is eyes several other characters(main, supporting, cameo, etc) who arepretty boys or handsome men and her rubbing her hands together plotting their capture and fun time.

2. She quickly tries to hide her stash of Quain’tana’s adventure stories away from Sarvswati and other sharens.

3. She’s on the battlefield and she flirts with a male enemy and depending on who they are, they get annoyed or confused or scared or interested. For example:



Karo: “Playing violin after killing a dragon and it’s sharen rider.”

Suma’layu: Hey there handsome ssu, I noticed that you’re a good violinist. What say you and me skip out on the fighting and go find a private place for us to have a little fun?

Karo: “Annoyed” No. I’m already in a relationship.

Suma’layu: Oh come on, it’ll be great. Why should you let the fact that you’re already in a relationship stop you?

Nuru’lara: “Brandishes axe” Karo is MINE! Get away from him you bitch!

*Edits* Most of accidentally erased the earrings I had for him doing editing pre-posting. Editing them in now.
*EDIT* Not happy with the name of the character. Changed to new one. Still the same character, just name changed.
Name- Gen'inidia Jie'yen

Race: Drowolath

Age: 64

Profession: Jie'yen Agent

Martial Ability: Trained and skilled in Jie'yen stealth and infiltration training, too physically weak to fully master Jie'yan martial arts. Physically weaker then most drows, even by the standards of a male, he relies on his speed and stealth, rather then raw physical force. Easily overpowered if grappled, he stays light on his feet and moving, as being pinned down or forced to face an opponent head on cause extreme challenge for him. When need demands, he fights using short thin daggers, hidden against his back, usually preferring a tactical retreat in such situations.

Mana Affinity: Shadow. Moderate skill, but a weaker aura then average drow lead him to drain quicker than most in times of heavy use. Shadow foci necessary for prolonged use.

Costume: Wears the plain clothing and bald head that marks him as a Jie'yan. He wears gloves on his hands, both with sewed in shadow foci, which he needs in for prolonged shadow sorcery use. The markings painted onto his head are of a hand, spread palm down over his forehead, the thumb spreading onto the side of his head, over his left ear and the rest of the fingers spread eagle, covering his forehead and stopping just at eye level. Both his ears as pierced, with matching stud earrings made of black stones, shaped into the forms of curled up dragons.

Colours: His eyes are dark green, with dark grey skin.

Personality traits:

-- Jie'yan disciplinary training has done its best to mold him into their standards, but it is a half won battle. His loyalty to the Jie'yan clan is absolute, but he is frequently dismissive, insubordinate and petty in his grudges, both of his superiors and those around him.
-- Has a habit of putting his foot in his mouth by speaking when he shouldn't, be that his oft failed attempts at witty or snarky comments, be that because of poor timing or his comments simply not being as clever as he thought or the fact he just made a joke that might truly be humorous, well only in the presence of people who find his comments asinine.
-- Enjoys stealing small objects from people, typically at random, using his training and self taught skills to lift small objects, trinkets and at times even concealed weapons off of people nearby, either stashing them away on his person, placing them back on the person he stole from, often in different pockets, or simply selling or throwing items away later.
-- Prone to muttering under his breath in complaints and bemoaning his bed luck, his loyalty to the Jie'yan none the less drives him to continue on, never quitting until the mission he has been given is completed, even in the risk of his own life.
-- Exposure to nether demons as a young drow have caused him to have a weak aura, limiting his conventional use of mana and will likely cause him to suffer from mana deprivation easier then normal as he gets older.

Favourite sayings:
"So we're planing to mate with Sharens now? You think killing your own mothers is genetic? Because that is a problem we could do without."
"Look, I'm telling you, I found your hair pins on the ground! I did not take them!"
"How can I help it if that instructor kept losing his shoes? I just happened to have four pairs that looked the exact same as the ones he lost! Come to think of it, we're all basicly wearing the same stuff anyway."

It's randomly picked , not judged . At present you have a 50% chance of winning the Jieyen spot . :) (not saying that your character is bad , just that you've got a very good chance of winning provided no one else enters , from the way I set the competition up)

Anyone who has a character should put it in soon , as the competition is going into its final stages. You'll still have plenty of time (I'll post up the end date for it at some point , probably about 2-3 weeks from now), I'd just prefer to get this off my responsibilities sooner rather then later , as I have house purchases and exams coming up soon .

Cheers to you all ! *wee*
