Tokyo Ghoul RP (preliminary sign-up)
« on: July 03, 2014, 09:13:26 PM »
Yes, it's that time. Let's have a Tokyo Ghoul RP!

Mechanics of the RP
In this RP, you will make original characters. All the real characters in the TG universe exist and are going about their business, as usual. At most they can be used as side characters, though the usage will be very limited. A player can "claim" a side character and becomes responsible for that character's interaction within the story. However, please only claim a side character you will need in your plotlines. After a side character has been claimed they cannot be claimed by any other player. However, if they aren't being used they can be loaned to other players. Please be respectful of everyone's stories!

To avoid any spoilers which may appear, we have decided that any chapter not released yet by Twisted Hel has not happened yet in the universe. (However, we are starting from the end of the Aogiri arc, which has yet to be released.) With each release of a chapter, the time line also proceeds forward. With that being said, in this RP the players should try to avoid putting things that happen in the series into their plotlines. Any released chapter is okay for mention here though, so if you haven't read all the released chapters why are you here!!?  Go read them, they are super exciting!   

Please remember to conform to the stardard RPing rules. No one should be god-moding or controling anyone else's character without permission. Keep the side characters in-character (Yomo shouldn't suddenly be a talkative crack-head, for example).

THS is a R18 forum. This means that course language, sexual themes, violence and whatever else floats your boat is okay. However, at Usha's request, you should not be too detailed in the sex and gore. We aren't writing a porno here and we're not trying to make anyone throw up. (Except me.)

Lastly, you will not be accepted into this RP unless you use proper English spelling, grammar and punctuation. No one likes reading a story which is lacking those things. Obviously, some things are forgivable, particularly for people whose native language is not English. Try your best, guys! 

General Story
Gangs of ghouls have taken to the streets, empassioned by Aogiri's bold battle with the CCG. Each of the wards' defenses weaken as CCG investigators are murdered in the blood-stained streets. The CCG is in crisis as they pool all their resources to somehow regain their footing. During this time, powerful ghouls are killing those weaker than themselves. Feeding grounds are a thing of the past as ghouls scramble to claim any territory they can. Ghouls have gotten fat on the meat of their fellow species and humankind alike. The ghoul gangs fight for dominion; individual ghouls cower as their lives slowly slip into choas; humans tremble in terror as they walk home at night.

Sign up
Please fill out this form and post it in this thread. Each player can have more than one character, but for the sake of balance between the CCG and ghoul characters, we ask that if you want two or more characters, please make at least one of each side. Characters can also be normal humans and whatever else. Get creative.

Here's to the first character! Ugu because no spoiler tag orz whispers sorry if this sucks crawls away to work on second one

Ghoul Investigator:

Name: Miyuki Tatsuo

Age: 19

Personality: Tatsuo isn't the friendliest of people. In fact, many would go as far to say that he's a complete ass, and that's something he's very well aware of. (Not that he cares.) To put it simply, he isn't afraid to speak his mind, and there are times when he can be blunt to a fault. He likes to stay indifferent towards the world at large and trudges through life with a "live like there's no tomorrow" mentality. A lone wolf to the extreme, he hates it when people "get in the way," and he usually only trusts his own ability to accomplish things. He's terribly merciless, and he isn't scared of pain, a result of numerous years of training. There are very few people he feels he can relax around, especially on the job.

Don't take him wrong though: his heart isn't as hard as most people would think. When it comes down to it, he's really still just a child, and though he likes to act like nothing bothers him at all, it's really just a form of denial, a defense mechanism designed to keep the bad away. In reality, he's just kind of lost. To him, life equates to investigating, a fact that he keeps well hidden. He doesn't know what to do, and just needs a nudge in the right direction. However, despite that, he has problems with authority, and that contributes to how irritable he usually is. Catch him off duty and he'll reveal that he's really a lot more easy-going that he'd like the rest of his coworkers think.

Now for a few quirks and habits. Despite being only 19, he's an insane coffee addict and can't get through the day without at least three cups of the stuff. Beyond that, he also slight case of insomnia, which really messes with his sleep schedule. He's a bit lazy, and sucks at keeping things tidy, and one should be warned never to let him into the kitchen to make anything besides coffee. He isn't too fond of sweets but doesn't care much for any other tastes, and he claims to be allergic to touchy feeley things. Calling him a shrimp or anything like that is never okay. His hobbies are napping and playing poker cards, and he likes playing video games. He dislikes fish, especially dead ones, as well as tall people.

Physical description: (Preview 1, Preview 2) With a mop of thick black hair and perpetually pale skin, Tatsuo is the very image one might call to mind when "shadow child" comes to mind. Ruby eyes and a small tattoo in the symbol of a spade that lies just beneath said eyes (under the left) only compliment the image. Standing at 5'5" (~162 cm) and tipping the scale at only 114 pounds (~51 kg), the little raven is rather petite for a man in his early twenties. Far stronger than his slim frame would suggest, a thin layer of lean muscle lies hidden under his skin, something that he keeps fit with constant exercise and training.

His wardrobe consists of darker colors, mainly black with splashes of red and white. On the job, he's usually seen in a trench coat and straight pants. A cap, elbow-length gloves, and knee-high boots complete the image, hiding much of the skin under his face and neck. Of course, it's not the only outfit he owns, and when he's not at work, he's seen in normal civilian clothes like T-shirts and shorts and the like.

Quinque: P² (P Squared; short form of a certain investigation target's alias), a rinkaku quinque shaped in the form of a large scythe (see Preview 2 for image). It is surprisingly heavy, but is rather strong and durable. Tatsuo takes good care of it.

Rank: Rank 2 Investigator

Double post but oh well. Anyway, no more for me until kill these two off. ...Probably.

Ghoul:

Name: Tsuji Yuuto (Red Fox)

Age: 21

Personality: In a nutshell, Yuuto is easygoing. Kindhearted by nature, he's of the quiet but loyal type, though he does have a habit of teasing others, especially those he's familiar with. But there can be such thing as too easygoing, and when it comes to morals, that's exactly what he is. Having been born a ghoul, he's no stranger to violence and killing. As such, the morality of those actions is more in the gray for him, and he tends to take an "end justifies the means" mentality when it comes to things like that. He's a bit secretive, and he has a tendency to reveal knowledge he has hidden only when the moment asks for it. Though he's usually pretty cool-headed, when push come to shove, Yuuto can be extremely ferocious. He's not very hotheaded, but that doesn't mean he's weak-willed either, and he's been known to be stubborn to a fault. As someone who likes to keep things to himself, he's good at hiding his anger or negative emotions and looking at things logically, though it only means a more explosive venting of them is on the way.

As a ghoul, he isn't too picky about his meals, and he visits Anteiku for coffee often enough that he's become a regular there. Of course, as it seems cannibalism among ghouls has started to become far more common, he's careful to stay on guard for ghouls more powerful than he is, as he'd like to stay on the side of the "hunters." When it comes to being a ghoul, he's the type to let logic dictate his actions. This can make him a bit overcautious at times, but hey, better safe than sorry, right? As someone who hides his negative emotions, there are certain times when he allows himself to vent and go on a sort of harmful spree and lashes out at others, ghoul or human. Though he doesn't attack with the intent to kill, many a ghoul have forfeited their lives to him during this time, and well, it's just more food for him so he doesn't care much. Excess food is sometimes given to close friends of the ghoul sort. Because these "sprees" happen every few months or so, the CCG has already given him the alias "Red Fox," for the way his low ponytail flies out behind him as he runs.

Physical description: (Preview) Yuuto is by no means a small person. With a height of 5'9" (~175 cm) and a weight of 131 pounds (~59 kg), he's got a pretty average frame, if not on the thin side. A bit bony, he's got long limbs and fingers, something that helps him greatly in his occupation as a musician. Though his skin is generally pretty pale, he tans rather easily. Yuuto's most defining features are his long, slightly wavy red hair (which he keeps tied in a low ponytail) and his eyes, which are red even when his kakugan aren't activated. Despite his apparent lankiness, he's stronger than he looks.

When it comes to apparel, he's anything but picky, though he prefers something with neutral colors. He's been known to wear turtlenecks and jeans, though he'll often wear jackets and sweaters over them. Other times, he'll just be in regular civilian clothes, though he tends to stay away from anything short sleeved, though he'll wear them if he's wearing something long sleeved with it. His ghoul mask is rather simple in design, and is white with nothing but a smiling face painted on it. The eye holes are made out of a material that lets him see through it easily while hiding his eyes. A purple thunderbolt cuts through the right eye hole. (Mask) He's got a thing for fingerless black gloves.

Kagune: Bikaku

Power ranking: B-Rank

Thanks, Lab! Your characters sound really interesting and well fleshed out. *_*

Ghoul Investigator

Name: Morinaka Amida

Age: 24

Personality: Amida is easy to get along with and kind-hearted. In fact, he's far too kind-hearted to the point of being unable to kill even a ghoul. This makes him a particularly bad ghoul investigator. He will easily take pity on ghouls and even allow them to escape if no one keeps an eye on him. Despite that, he does want to help people and so he mostly focuses on handing out warnings and collecting information concerning ghouls. He is not terribly adept with his quinque or in physical confrontations, because of that he is often injured in the field. However, he holds no ill-will towards the ghouls or his collegues.   

Amida is rather clumbsy and often makes a mess around the office. This is most apparent when he gets nervous or when he tries cooking. Though he often makes senseless mistakes, Amida is in no way dumb.

On his days off he likes to visit his parents and go to arcades. However, recently he's been taking more and more overtime at the office. 

Physical description: Amida is 5'10" and ~150 lbs. He has black hair which always looks like someone enthusiastically messed it up. At work, he wears the standard investigator attire; though his trench coat is quite ratty and torn in several areas. He has a faint scar which runs from behind his left ear to the top of his collar bone. He almost always has a grin on his face.

Quinque: Lash, a bikaku type quinque in the shape of a whip.

Rank:  Demoted to Rank 3 after an incident during whack-a-mole in the 24th ward.

(I'll come back and post my ghoul later.)
