    Default Gears of the Revolution (Sign-ups)

    It is the year 2198, and a huge shift in politics has shifted, and all the citizens are taken in for a extremely bumpy ride. All around the globe, totalitarianism spreaded like wildfire, burning everything in its path and encompassed the world. Not even the stations orbiting the planet out in space aren't safe. Now people have to wear ID cards, street battles with Pokemon are outlawed, the Gyms and Leagues were forced to close, the Contests were canceled due to the Ribbon Syndicate somehow went bankrupt, the Battle Frontiers were torn down and replaced with brutal and unrelenting coliseums, breeding centers were under surveillance, the Jennies became obsolete and were given pink slips, as well as the Joys, then were replaced with the Jacksons and Pains respectively and the regional professors were thrown in jail. Everything was going south, basically.

    The governments have a police force that goes beyond any law that is passed, and are called "the Corps", due to the fact that they are trained at the level of Marines. No one dared to oppose them, but no one accepted the lies that they spew. Until one day, one man did the unthinkable - stole a military-grade prototype exo-suit that was for adaptive moderate warfare. This suit could transform inself and the wearer into a walking living armory. As such, due to the possible evil it could be used for, this was the reason why it was stolen. This man lead a revolution that ultimately failed over the span of 30 years. He was called Paladin, a "Child of Revolution". He once bore a flag with a gray background showing a red arm holding a sword crossed with a blue arm holding a olive branch. Below them, in purple, were, translated from Latin, "Peace is Gained at the Sword's Tip".

    At the end of those 30 years, Paladin was finally caught in London, where an shot from a tank hit him square in the back, sending him into a wall, unconscious. He was publically executed in front of the Tower of London after being revealed of his true identity as Travis Chorcino, engineer extrodinaire and the maker of the exo-suit know as the Technoneurotic Enhancement Cybersuit Mark I (T.E.C. Mk. 1), which was taken for studying and perhaps reverse-engineering. Still, he hid secrets from the government that a few know - he made multiple cybersuits, the Mk. II suits and hid them in the last places the Corp members will ever look.

    You are the next Paladins. You have found one of the Mk. 2 suits, thus making you a Child of Revolution. Your job is to finish what the original Travis started and overthrow the governments. Yet, with all this power, will you join your brethern or betray them?

    Let the cogs spin as the rebellion starts, and thus, peace is gained at the tip of the sword......

While there, he had heard and watch of Paladin's demise, the sole light in the world extinguished. However, when he came to his rented house in Twinleaf City, he found a celler and went inside it. After unintentionally unlocking the place (by turning on the lights and hitting a switch disguised as a wrench), he found a Cybersuit identical yet different to the old Paladin's armor. After hearing a playback message, Seighart took the Cybersuit and became a new Paladin.

    Name: Isaac Fields
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male
    Nationality: The good ol' U. S. of A.
    Appearance: 5'8, 166 pounds, Black, Slightly messy hair. His eyes are green with reddish brown flares. Wears a black T-shirt with a yellow smiley face, jeans, and always has headphones.

    Suit appearance: As opposed to covering his whole body like many suits, Isaac's suit (Which he customized using old video game consoles) only creates a thin web under his clothes, and is mainly concentrated on his right hand, like a gauntlet. This gauntlet makes it much easier to wield his katana, Sonic (Yes, he named it after THAT Sonic.) which is indestructible, being extremely dense. Howver, this density makes it so it's far too heavy to wield without the rest of his suit.
    Sealed: A blue wristband.

    Personality:
    Normal: Isaac is an okay guy. With violent tendencies. He's best described as affably evil. He acts like you'd expect a normal person to, except he really, really likes to kill things. He fights the government in part simply because they have less people to bisect/behead/otherwise mutilate. He's extremely impulsive, and angers easily.
    With suit: The only difference is, with the suit, he's less impulsive and more cold, logical.

    Release: Kill, Sonic! Faster, faster!

    History: As mentioned above, one of the reasons he fights the government is so that he can kill more people. But they also tore down his apartment complex, and as such, ruined his one love: His incredibly large collection of video games was destroyed. Outraged, he bought a suit off the black market. He now ambushes small groups of corps in alleyways and kills them.

    Name/Nickname: Arianna Emerson / Ari

    Gender: female

    Age: 22

    Nationality: [Japanese/Australian/Italian/Irish]-American

    Country and city of origin: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

    Appearance:
    (Physical): About 5'3" tall, 115 lbs., with long black hair tied up in a ponytail. A thin braid hangs down the right side of her face. She is often mistaken for a guy at first glance, and her grey eyes have hints of blue, green, and even a little bit of purple in them.
    (Normal clothing): Dark jeans, a white, button-up shirt with a collar, and somewhat dirty blue and white Converse. She wears a simple steel watch on her left wrist, silver earrings in the shape of hearts, and wears a necklace of black cord. Hanging from it is a pale, rectangular stone with lines of red bleeding up from the bottom almost like fractures, known as Septarian or, more commonly, Dragon Stones. It was given to her by a friend for her birthday one year.

    Suit/Paladin appearance:
    (Normal): A black suit similar to HDW's, with red highlights on the joints. The helmet has a small cyclone printed on it in red on the back. Otherwise, it's nothing special.
    (Sealed): A pendant showing a cyclone

    Sealed state release command: Drago della Tempesta (lit. "Dragon of the Storm" in Italian)

    Personality:
    (As you): Blunt and often short-tempered, Ari is a rather contradictory individual. Befriend her, and in her own words, "You're stuck with me for good, whether you like it or not." However, if you make her your enemy, then she won't be forgetting about you anytime soon. She doesn't like to mince words, so she can come off as rather callous, but overall, she's got a good and kind personality, and will not stand to see someone weak being picked on. She's generally easygoing, though she gets irritated rather easily and has no patience for people she thinks are immature or stupid.
    (As Paladin counterpart): She is a lot more methodical, taking more time to think things through and figure out what will work out best in the grand scheme of things, rather than just for the short-term. She tends to have really accurate intuition, more about people than events, but since the two often go hand-in-hand, they are usually one and the same. In general, she's merciful and willing to give people second chances if she thinks that it won't turn out badly. In both forms, she's stubborn as a mule, and it takes a lot to get her to back down when she believes she's right.

    Pokemon partner/team: Itokuzu ("Ito" for short), the Swablu. He likes to rest on top of her head or on her shoulder.

    History: Born in Boston, Ari moved around a lot when she was young due to her father's job in the Corps. As such, she never really had time to settle down and make friends. When she got older, she somehow managed to land herself at Harvard, though even she doesn't know how, and graduated with a degree in Anthropology, specifically archaeology and pokemon evolution. She never agreed with what the Corps did, but never thought she'd actively do anything about it until she moved out on her own to Cinnabar Island in the Kanto region. There, at her home on the beach, she discovered a strange stone which glowed when she held it in her hand. She noticed that the glow intensified the closer she got to the ocean, and immediately hired a boat to take her out. Above a nearby coral reef, she swam down, following the glow into a hidden natural cave in the coral until she reached a portion which had a pocket of air. In here, she discovered the suit and playback message, and became a Paladin.

    Basically, the release command is the codeword that activates the Suit into "battle form". For example, mine is "grind". And accepted.

    And yes, this is something I got from the Bleach series from the Shikai/Resurrección release commands.

    Name/Nickname: Silas Midnight / Sy/Si (pronounced "sai")

    Gender: Male

    Age: 24

    Nationality: American

    Country and city of origin: Las Vegas, Nevada, United States

    Appearance:

    (Physical): Silas stands at 5'11" tall and weighs around 140 lbs. He has slightly tanned skin and short, messy, dirty blonde hair. He is of average build and has dark hazel eyes that always have a mischievous glint to them, complementing his troublesome grin.
    (Normal clothing): He's always seen in an extremely expensive, often black suit, complete with a smooth, black tie, polished platinum buttons and cufflinks, sleek shoes, and large, black sunglasses that hide his eyes. He often carries a cane with a bluish-silver stetch of platinum down the middle, though he only uses it for show.

    Suit/Paladin appearance:

    (Sealed): A platinum medallion of a profile of the human skull, which he keeps pinned to his tie.
    (Normal): When released, the suit creeps across his skin beneath his clothes to form a blueish-silver, indestructable exoskeleton over his arms, legs, chest and spine, mimicking identically his bone-structure. The suit heavily accelerates his movement and he is able to manipulate the metal to form blades, though not very quickly.


    Sealed state release command: Nex est non terminus (Death is not the end in Latin)

    Personality:

    (As you): Silas is arrogant, incredibly self-serving, and has no care for the outside world as long as he can play Texas Hold 'Em with diamond studded poker chips and order filet mignon for a food fight. He's very immature and, among all these things, is a terrible womanizer. His manipulative charm and sharp wit have enticed many women, but money seems to remain his one true love. But, more than anything, Silas believes that risk is the only way to go, that you either go all in or don't go in at all, and he loves to gamble against the toughest odds, even with his life on the line.
    (As Paladin counterpart): At first glance, Silas would appear to be unchanged by the suit. But, as it turns out, it's only a facade, a disguise to keep other from thinking him weak. When he's alone, or at least thinks he is, he proves to be amazingly selfless, and is always willing to sacrifice anyone for those he cares about, even if he won't admit it.

    Pokemon partner/team: None

    History: The only child of two stuck-up entrepreneurs living in Las Vegas, who only chose to have a child for publicity reasons, Silas was forced, for the most part, to raise himself in the bright lights and enticing aroma of the City of Sin. It didn't take long for him to be addicted to risk and gambling, as he lived in the penthouse sweet of his father's casino. He eventually inheritted the casino after his father's murder and renamed it Casino Midnight, taking its name as his own and making it a part of him, gambling more than even his most common of customers.

    As the laws grew more strict under the totalitarian government, Silas was regrettably forced underground, reduced to betting on illegal Pokemon tournaments and card games with lowly criminals. As he saw his empire crumble and his wallet shrink, he vowed to restore the city to its natural, sinful beauty.

    I suppose this thread could use a bump while the GM's gone to see if it'll generate any new interest. So...bump.
