    Exclamation Risen: Exhumed

    Is death really the end?


    Nestled in an isolated valley deep in the Rocky mountains, a mansion sits where a man tries to answer that question. Known only as The Doctor, he runs a colossal research facility deep under the mansion.

    It's purpose? The study of the nature of life, the soul, and resurrection. Thus, human subjects are needed. Whether an orphan kidnapped off the street, an illegal immigrant caught up in human trafficking, psychically sensitive humans stolen from their homes and replaced with clones, or simply hikers that just got lost, they were brought to the facility, and became guinea pigs for twisted experiments. Those who survived became monsters. Those who didn't may have been reborn as monsters, or pieces of one. The research data was used to make facsimiles of humans, constructs that are very nearly human, but not quite. These would be used to replace anyone taken when their families would become suspicious, or perhaps kept in the facility for testing.

    You are one of the denizens of this facility. You are granted a dorm, and depending on how cooperative you are, you are allowed free reign of much of the mansion. However, you are still very much a prisoner: Anyone who sets foot outside will be shot.

    It's time to get out.


    Rules
    -No godmodding. Don't say an attack hits. Just say your character tried to attack.
    -Your characters are strong, but not that strong. They could handle maybe an armed cop in a one-on-one fight, and probably take out a small team of knife-wielding thugs. But if they want to survive, at least at the start, it's not wise to pick fights with a squad of armed guards. That doesn't mean you can't fight them. But if you do, you're going to need a good strategy if you want to succeed.


    Sign-Ups

    Name: Everyone has a name, although your character may only be known by their serial number at this point.
    Gender: Boy, girl, robot, etc.
    Age: The facility has been around for roughly 30 years, and although The Doctor prefers younger subjects, your character could well have been in the mansion from the start. Or even a worker at the facility helping the subjects.
    Nature: Your character may have once been human, but now the nature of their being has been altered. What sort of creature are they? A monster that sucks the very life force from others? Or perhaps an anomaly, a being that at once both exists between the human and spirit worlds? Or maybe you never were human, and instead have always been a biological construct, your memories mere fabrications? Whatever you are, nature never intended you.
    Powers: What powers has your character gotten due to the doctor's experiments? Can they tear a man limb from limb? Or track a man to the ends of the earth using scent alone? Or do bullets flatten themselves against your character's skin?
    Skills: Does your character have any mundane skills they've learned?
    Weaknesses: The Doctor's experiments are not without side effects. Your character has at least one weakness. They might be slowly going mad. Or maybe silver will render them immobile. Or maybe they have an aversion to religious symbols. Make sure this is an actual weakness that always negatively affects your character. 'Impulsive' or 'Easily Angered' or personality traits don't really count, since, let's face it, if you want to choose those, you're clearly trying to avoid something that will actually hinder your character.
    Appearance: What does your character look like? A picture is worth a thousand words.
    History: What did your character do before they arrived at the facility? Did anything out of the ordinary occur while they were there? Was there a special reason for them being taken? Make it as long as you like.
    Likes: Things your character really likes, like the smell of old books, or watching the sunset.
    Dislikes: Things your character dislikes, such as the smell of blood, or the taste of caramel.
    Favorite thing: What does your character treasure, beyond all else?

    Example:
    Name: Richter Noxt
    Gender: Male
    Age: 15
    Nature: Psychically-augmented human.
    Powers: Due to having his brain modified, Richter now has access to psychic powers. He can use these to heal the wounds of himself or his allies.
    Skills: Richter has a very good memory, and due to being raised there, thus knows more about the facility than most other subjects.
    Weakness: Using his powers to heal more than a few cuts will cause headaches that render him unable to do much more than walk slowly about a minute later. Due to the fact that to activate his powers, he had bits of machinery put in his brain, strong magnets can also cause these headaches.
    Appearance: What does your character look like? A picture is worth a thousand words.
    History: Richter's mother was involved in some medical studies before Richter was conceived. The medicine had no immediate affects on the people in the study. However, when they had kids, those children would experience abnormal brain growth.
    This study was organized by The Doctor. He had the subjects kidnapped as infants, then replaced with clones that would die after one month. Richter was one of these people. He was more or less raised in the facility.
    Likes: The mansion's library, helping others
    Dislikes: Headaches, not being allowed to go the library
    Favorite thing: A travel guide he managed to swipe from one of the researchers going on vacation.

    Name: John Doe (He forgot his real name)
    Age: 25 (at time of death)
    Gender: Male

    Nature: John is a being called a Frankenstein, meaning that he is an undead. John was experimented when he was alive and was then revived.
    Appearance:



    Even though he's an undead his body was revived to the point that it looks just as it did back when he was alive. He has tanned skin along with a muscled built, there are stitch marks around his shoulders, which keep his arms together. He has red spiky hair that he normally keeps ruffled along with a pair of black eyes. He has a large red cross mark on his chest which goes up to the start of his neck and down to his waist. He also has similar cross marks on the palms of his hands.

    He wears a blue colored suit that he usually keeps opened up so that the cross stays visible, he also wears a pair of blue pants and black moccasins.

    Personality: John Doe is kind of sadistic, always going around picking fights if he's not happy with an outcome or something, well unless he knows that he really can't win a fight. He's very stubborn and lazy at times because he only does what he wants, because of this he can also be very selfish towards other people; since he only does things when he knows that there's something in it for himself. Other than that he usually keeps a serious expression, though he's also very curious; something that contrasts with his usual demeanor.

    Power: After being experimented on John Doe has obtained the ability to control electricity through static and electromagnetism, he has also obtained enhanced strength and endurance.

    Skills: John Doe is adept in physical combat, something that matches well with his enhanced strength. He has fast reflexes as well.

    Weaknesses: John Doe, while being an undead still has the same features of a normal human in regards to his body, for one his electric ability has to charge itself for a few minutes before he can use it, other than that the red cross on his chest is very sensitive and works as his weakpoint aside from being the place where he power comes from. He's not very smart or intuitive either so he tends to rush into things a lot.

    History: John Doe has forgotten his memories from before he was revived, what he knows are few things that the doctor has told him from his past. From what he's been told it seems that he had been taken in while traveling around in the forest, after that he died while being experimented on and ended up being revived after a few years, the experiments continued though and after he was finally revived he was modified and became able to use electricity. After that John Doe lived in the mansion but he usually doesn't do much but just lay around and pick fights with others, he does enjoy watching movies a lot and also tends to spend his time eating. Oddly enough he hasn't had many thoughts of getting away, mostly because he doesn't see what the point would be for him to get out when he doesn't remember anything about himself.

    Likes: Eating meat, watching movies, fighting strong people, tailored suits, people that are honest about their feelings.
    Dislikes: Vedgetables, books, people that lie about their feelings or act like they have good intentions.
    Favorite Thing: His suit

    Name: Harry Mann
    Gender: Boy
    Age: 16
    Nature: Enhanced Intelligence Human
    Powers: Harry has an IQ of 250. Yeah, says it all, but there's more. Due to the refinement of his mind, when plugged up to a psychic generator he can produce enough force to at most move a human. He has an incredible memory and is by far the most intelligent person on the planet.
    Skills: Harry can flick through books and gain their knowledge. As such he has gained knowledge of knots, military strategy, carbon compounds and much more, although he avoids books based on modern combat, not knowing how to even cock a rifle.
    Weaknesses: Due to his excess of intelligence if Harry discovers too much information at once he will experience blackouts and madness. He is slowly approaching permenant madness. He also finds no attraction in people or even the feminine sex currently.
    Appearance: Harry isn't particularly tall or handsome, at 5'8". He is weak, with very little muscle. He has shaven black hair and deep brown eyes that look at everything inquisitively. His hands are thin and bony like an old man's. Most of the time he wears simple clothes, a hoodie, jeans and a T-shirt, as he cares not about fashion, merely comfort and efficience
    History: Before Harry came to the Academy he was dislexic, autistic and had aspurges. He was a gang member of an influential city cartel, running drugs from one place to another and occasionally getting in fights. He was busted after a huge city knife fight and sentenced to juvinile prison. There he was approached by The Doctor via a psychic inmate, who offered him the chance of escape, and The Doctor would heal all of his problems. He took the option, hoping for Utopia, but instead got a new kind of hell.
    Likes: Harry loves books and can read several hundred a day if given a library, and loves to play chess. He also loves parmezan and rocket salad.
    Dislikes: Harry detests violence and finds people's ignorance infuriating.
    Favorite thing: Books.

    Alright, LET'S DO THIS!

    Name: Delta

    Gender: Female

    Age: 13

    Nature: Dog girl

    Powers: Being a hybrid of dog and human (mostly human though), she's smarter than your average canine, but isn't as intelligent as the average person. She can track down anyone by using scent alone and is stronger than you would expect her to be. Her fingernails act similar to claws but she only uses them for digging around, but her jaw is powerful like a German Shepherd (Delta uses about 600 pounds of force) and anything that's bitten by her will definitely have a mark no matter what. Delta also gained an advanced sense of sight and sound, and can detect little bits of noise very easily.

    Skills: Delta considers speaking as a skill because of her severe memory loss which caused her to forget the English language. Despite never being allowed outside since she was taken into the facility, forests and other animals are the only things she remembers, and can define the species of plants and animals (which would be useful if no one else knew what was poisonous or not).

    Weaknesses: Delta never re-learned how to read, so there's one problem. She also has a natural hate for squirrels and other rodents and will try to chase and kill them no matter what the situation is (she also does the same for cats). Because of her heightened senses, bright lights and high pitched noises will be even brighter and louder, forcing her to have a slight freak-out moment.

    Appearance: Delta has light brown skin and dark brown eyes. Her black hair looks like it was once a ponytail that got cut off, giving her hair a short and straight-cut appearance. She wears loose-fitting clothes like long shirts and long shorts that reach down to her knees. She doesn't wear any shoes. Now the parts that resemble a dog (don't worry, there are no stupid kawaii-desu dog tail and ears on her) are her eyes, teeth, and fingernails. Her irises and pupils had gotten larger, giving her a somewhat cute and creepy feature. Delta's canine teeth have slightly enlarged and had become longer. Her fingernails are about an inch long and they are nearly indestructible, trying to clip them with a single nail clipper would break the clipper.

    Personality: Delta is very dependent on others. She'll refer to someone with leader-like qualities as "Alpha" and someone she hates as "Omega". She's friendly and naive around people she knows, but has major trust issues when it comes to strangers. She has a low vocabulary, so big and long words are extremely confusing to her. She's very curious and hyper, saying that she must see anything and everything there is to see. Delta, of course, would have a feral side to this playful and friendly personality. Her feral side is shown when rodents, strangers, bright lights, or high pitched noises are around. She can get pretty depressed over tiny little mistakes, spilling a glass of milk is enough to make her sob in the corner for about an hour.

    History: Delta's parents were zoologists, which explains the fact that her only memory is about plant and animal species. In school she wasn't bullied, but she was really ignored and nobody really noticed her. She wasn't kidnapped until she had stayed home because of a fever one day. She just went to sleep in her bed and woke up in the facility being completely fine, but she was highly panicked. She had barely even begun to escape before the scientists and researchers knocked her out again with a sedative. Her purpose was to see if being more in touch with the animalistic side of nature could extend life expectancy, but that theory still has yet to be proved.The transformation into her "Dog Girl" state was highly damaging to her brain, and caused permanent amnesia. The only memories she regained was her knowledge of plants and animals, and how to speak English.

    Likes: Gentle and trustworthy people, outdoors, weird perfume scents, and Richter (refers to him as Alpha).

    Dislikes: Liars, confinement, rodents and cats, fancy words, and isolation

    Favorite thing: A bottle of extremely strong perfume that she stole from a researcher. Delta never actually puts it on, but she just sprays a little in the air just so she could pick up the scent. To her, it's like candy for her nose.

    Name: Alice
    Gender: Female
    Age: 15

    Nature: Blood Mage

    Powers: Alice is capable of controlling and manipulating her own blood, being able to turn it to gas or a solid like water. Alice can cut her skin to create spears, arms, whips, etc with blood.

    Skills: Outside of blood manipulation, Alice has very little combat skills. However, she claims to be clairvoyant, being able to see ghosts, and she is fairly gifted artistically. Alice is very skilled when it comes to writing, drawing, and painting. (All of them being personal hobbies of hers.)

    Weaknesses: When fighting, Alice has to either be on an all out offensive, or extremely passive. She can't regenerate and heal while fighting or vice versa. Alice also gets fairly fatigued if she fights to long do to blood loss.

    Appearance: Alice stands at 5,4 and weighs 95 lbs. being fairly underweight. Alice looks very frail in appearance, her skin being a pale grey color, kinda like she's dead (but she's not). She has deep black shadows around her eyes which are a pale baby blue, and the only color on coming from her vivacious short red hair with pangs that are parted to cover her left eye. Alice wears a loose fitting white tank top and white mini skirt, with white boots. These are the only articles of clothing, since she wears white bandages around her arms, legs, torso, neck, etc. Her white attire is also speckled with a few blotches of dry blood, often making strangers think that she's hurt or injured. Alice also has a thing for key's wearing an iron skeleton key she found in the Doctor's manor on a choker around her neck.

    History: Alice was legally adopted by The Doctor, at the age of 4, but still has no idea what his name is. While she treats him out of respect, this is mostly out of fear because of the torturous experiments she went through durring childhood. The only thing that actually brought Alice happiness were keys. Alice started to collect them, because to her, keys represent an escape and ability to enter a new world. She started to steal any key she could find and make them apart of her secret collection, but she has no idea which doors any of those keys open. The older looking the key, the more Alice loves it. Because she has so much free time on her hands, Alice took up the hobby of reading and writing novels about escaping to the outside world alongside paintings and drawings that represented her being free. Alice desperately wants to flee from the manor, but she's to afraid to do so, because she's afraid of The Doctor will do to her and how other people will treat her in the outside world.

    Likes: Keys (She loves old one), old books, fine art, freedom, flowers, cute couples.
    Dislikes: Couples fighting, violence, the doctor, loneliness,
    Favorite thing: The skeleton key she wears as a necklace charm

    Name: Gunkly

    Gender: Male

    Age: 1.5 Years since hatching

    Nature: Genetically Modified Poison Dart Frog

    Powers: Gunkly's poisonous abilities have been augmented. The tips of his fingers and toes contain a paralyzing poison; a light tap on an opponent causes the surrounding muscles to become numb. If Gunkly is in contact for longer the effects become more powerful, potentially completely disabling certain parts of the body. The effects wear off, and he has control over whether the poison in his hands/feet will effect what he touches. Gunkly's throat sac also contains a poison that is also not quite so pleasant. He can churn the toxins to increase their effectiveness fire it in blobs. This toxin is highly toxic, and it is also very acidic. At maximum effectiveness it can kill an Elephant without immediate medical attention, and can burn through steel (very slowly, mind you.)

    He also has a few enhanced abilities simply from being a Frog. His body is covered in a slimy film that allows him to stick to many different surfaces. Gunkly is an excellent swimmer, and can hold his breathe for upwards of 15 minutes. And finally, his legs are very powerful, allowing him to perform jumps of up to 4 times his height (12 ft) and can deliver powerful kicks. He is also very resistant to many other kinds of toxins.

    Skills: Swimming, Gymnastics, Finger Paints (he is rather young after all)

    Weaknesses: In order to stay healthy, his skin needs to stay moisturized. Spending too much time out of water can cause him to become weak; if there was ever a time his skin became completely dried out it could potentially prove fatal for him. Every once in a while he needs to take a dip to keep up his strength. Heat can dry out his skin more quickly which makes Gunkly very weary of it.

    Appearance: (Frog his design is based off of)
    thomas-marent-strawberry-poison-dart-frog-dendrobates-pumilio-bastimentos-national-park-bocas-de.jpg
    Gunkly is vaguely humanoid due to the doctor's changes. Normally his legs are bent like what is natural for his species, but if he stands up straight he reaches just over 4 meters tall, roughly the height of a child. Similar to the picture, he is red with white feet and hands with black spots dotted over everything. His toes closely resemble that of frogs, and are webbed with rounded toes. His hands are also similar to those of his close cousins, but they are much more nimble. His eyes are pitch black but thanks to his new facial muscles he can convey emotion pretty well. His throat can expand to be really big as he breathes, and it is also a white color.

    He doesn't wear much in the way of clothing. He simply wears waterproof pants and waterproof vest. He doesn't really care much about clothing at all, and really only wears it because others expect him to.

    History: It wasn't Gunkly that was taken to the facility, it was his parents. The doctor performed many experiments on them in order to harness the power of their poisons. He messed with their DNA to change many different aspects of them, but was continually unsatisfied with the results. The Parents just were not very receptive to the changes he was making. He was about to give up, to scrap the project and start anew, but the two Poison Dart Frogs created a batch of eggs. The doctor was very curious about what the eggs may contain.

    Unfortunately, most of the tadpoles that were born were too mutated to survive. Many left and right passed away, along with their parents, but one tadpole seemed healthy. There was very rapid growth; by the end of the first week he had grown into a small frog. And by the end of the next week he was the natural size of an adult frog. But Gunkly continued to grow and his body rapidly changed shape as he did. Not only did his body grow, but his mind did as well. He wasn't a genius by any stretch, but he grew to be about average by human standards. It wasn't long before he grew to the height he is now. The doctor took tests, noting the increased potential of Gunkly's toxins. Gunkly was born and raised in the Mansion has had seen very little of what is outside. He really doesn't know where he came from, and even though he is pretty smart he is also very young and inexperienced. He doesn't know what happened to his parents, nor where he really comes from as the doctor had never told him.

    Likes: Water, Relaxing, Comic Books

    Dislikes: Fire, Salt, Eating his vegetables

    Favorite thing: A vibrant purple flower that he was told came from the same rainforest his parents came from. It was the flower the two of them were discovered in, and it's Gunkly's only token of his parents he has.
