Marcus - "This is the way."Character Section
 

Name: Marcus

Gender Identity and Pronouns: He/Him

Appearance: A single scar mars his otherwise flawless face, yet somehow it adds to his charm. His beard, a point of self-pride, is meticulously groomed, oiled and brushed. When it comes to clothing, function over fashion is important, but even then he makes survival-wear look good.
  • Age: 28
  • Hair: Brown
  • Eyes: Steel Blue-Grey
  • Height: 5'11
  • Weight: 175 lbs.

Personality: Marcus has a calm and relaxed demeanor, but this is little more than a mask. He is often anxious about other people's opinion of him, and worried about making mistakes. The most common phrase he heard growing up was, "Work hard, you can always be replaced." and this has been ingrained deeply into his psyche. As such, he always works his hardest to ensure he gives those around him no excuse to make good on this threat; real or imagined. While he might aim for freedom, his heart and mind are both shackled by fear of abandonment, and until he learns to free himself of his own self-doubts, he will never truly understand freedom.

Cypher Character Statement OR Concept: A war hound looking for a pack. He is trained military scout who has a specialty in tracking and reconnoitering, including the detecting and disabling of traps.
  • "I am an Honorable Explorer who Hunts."

Background: Marcus was born to a Comfort worker who worked in a corporation sponsored Killjoy-only inn/retreat. His mother was among a large selection of men or women who could be hired to provide comfort for the often flush with cash Killjoys between bounties.

As soon as Marcus was old enough to hold a brush he was given tasks like scrubbing the latrine to earn his keep. Marcus took on every odd job he could to be useful, and to avoid being thrown away. Though he never knew who his father was, he was at least certain it was one of the countless Killjoys who visited. Naturally, this peaked his curiosity, and he often pestered the Killjoys to tell him stories. Their stories were the only form of entertainment in his life, and he idolized their exploits.

Marcus desired a life of adventure, but before he was old enough to take the Killjoy Exam, a war between two rival corporations broke out. Since he was not yet a killjoy, he still had his citizenship and as a result he was drafted into his Corporate-Overlord's army. Marcus fought, bled, and watched many people die over the next few years until the war finally lost its profitability and peace was reestablished. Like many former-soldiers, Marcus quickly found himself looking for work.

With nothing stopping him, he once again applied to be Killjoy; like so many other out-of-work soldiers. During his exam, his examiner asked him why he wanted to be a Killjoy. It seemed oddly personal for a test that focused on skill, but Marcus considered it carefully. "I've spent my life observing people, and at the end of the day, it seems like no matter who you are, or where you're from, there is always someone with a bigger desk and a nicer suit that you must answer too. Killjoys are no different, in the guild, they must listen to their handler, just like everyone else. ...But I've never seen anyone laugh as deeply, or smile as genuinely as a Killjoy. They are the closest thing in this universe to being Free... and that's what I want. To feel free, even if its only an illusion."

For some reason, Marcus passed.

Player Section

Roleplaying Sample:
Here is a Pokémon Game I'm currently playing.
Here is a Transformers game I recently started running.

Why: I generally love bounty hunter themed space games, television and the like. Star Wars is obviously one of my favourite things, but I also enjoyed Firefly, Killjoys, Andromeda, Vagrant Queen, Fall Out game series, Mass Effect game series... Like the energizer bunny, this list is just going to keep going and going...

Cypher: No experience, eager to learn.

Lines and Veils: So long as you follow the site's guidelines, everything should be fine.

I'm very interested being a big fan of the series.

Character Section

Name: Quey Thon

Gender Identity and Pronouns: he/him

Appearance: An older male with pockmarked skin, salt and pepper hair and scruffy beard. Approx 1.7 meters tall and 90kg.

Personality: Generally easy and outgoing he becomes very intense when working on a problem. Grew up in a decent family culture. He prefers thinking through a problem before leaping in with both feet.

Cypher Character Statement OR Concept: A studious healer with a nack for understanding how the body, mind and nature works

Background: Was born and raised in a farming community on Leith. At a young age he showed a talent for dressing wounds, as well as diagnosing and treating illness. He quickly was apprenticed to the area healer (not sure if formal training would be allowed) and became very adept at making remidies and cures from natural materials.


Player Section:

Roleplaying Sample: I usually play on Discord so nothing here but here are a two small samples, if you'd like more just let me know.

An Elf wanders in through the door with an easy comfortable grace. Dressed in darker colors and a thin blade on his hip. He looks young but who can tell for one of the timeless. An easy smile comes to his lips when one of the serving girls comes to greet him. You see a few coppers passed and she leads him to a spot at the bar you hadn’t noticed, almost as if it was left open on purpose.

Situated with the bar on his hip and his back against the wall he takes in the room as the girl brings him a tankard that wasn’t filled from the large keg in plain view. His nose wrinkles a bit when the smoke assails his senses. He shifts slightly and leans in to ask the girl a question. She scans the room and shakes her head. With a timid pat on his hand she excuses herself and heads off to help other patrons.
---------------------

Ulfgar smiles at Tesalie as he scrapes the ichor off his blade, "what do you mean? We're all alive, and the crawlies are dead. Seems like a good start to me." Looking over at Illias he winks, "you may want to search that, it might be the missing person you promised to look for." As he takes in the cells, a twinge of discomfort settles in to the back of his mind. So many cells, he thinks, all hidden behind secret doors, this was no normal dungeon. Shying away from the thoughts of the original purpose of the place he instead starts looking at the floor of the corridor hoping to see a clue of the direction the kobalts came from.
--------------------

Why: I liked the tone serious yet a little light hearted too. The pace was good and the characters were fun. I like how the non-main characters were developed Pree, Gared, Lucy and even Zeph were allowed to grow.

Cypher: I've never used cypher but have been playing TTRPGs for nigh 40 years. The GM I've played with most like system jumping so very comfortable with learning a new one.

Wow.

I thought this game would be a hard sell, but I've gotten great applications!

I'm moving the deadline for applications up to March 23. Please feel free to ask questions in this thread or via PM

I think you hit a niche and as I see the system is not that hard to absorb

My deepest thanks to everyone who applied to this game. I appreciate the thought and effort you put into creating your characters, and the Killjoys tv series fandom you shared with me by engaging in the setting!

Invitations have been sent to the players who will be joining the game.

Thank you!
<3 Sprite
