Title: After the Animorphs: The One OOC [spoilers for entire series]
Post by: Doomhawk on March 02, 2012, 03:03:02 PM
Spoilers for the entire series! If you wish to skip the background, scroll straight to the text in GREEN

"Answer this, Ellimist: Did I  . . . did I make a difference? My life, and my. . . my death . . . was I worth it? Did my life really matter?"

"Yes," he said. "You were brave. You were strong. You were good. You mattered."

"Yeah. Okay, then. Okay, then."


The Ellimist looked down at the bravest Animorph solemnly, waiting for her to fade from existence.

LETTING GO OF YOUR STRONGEST CHESS PIECE SO EASILY? I'M SURPRISED, ELLIMIST. The Ellimist looked upwards to spot his nemesis staring down at him. In that moment, attention diverted by the glowing red eye, a small, wrinkled dinosaur-like being appeared in a flash and then disappeared with the prone form of Rachel. He looked back down to see that she had already passed.

"I understand that you may be bitter about losing this final game, Crayak, but did you really feel it necessary to interrupt this moment?" The Ellimist asked patiently.

OH, I AM NOT INTERRUPTING. I, TOO, CAME TO PAY MY LAST RESPECTS TO THE MOST BLOODTHIRSTY WARRIOR OF ALL. IF I HAD KNOWN AT THE START WHAT SHE WOULD BECOME, I WOULD HAVE TRADED A HUNDRED OF MY PIECES FOR HER. The wizened Ketran nodded slowly.

"That she was a force to be feared is something that I agree on." Then he looked back up at Crayak. "Whatever happens to the lone Blade ship that escapes, it does not matter. I have won the game, Crayak." The Ellimist sensed the ship flying towards Kelbrid space, knowing that as soon as they encountered any other ship, they would be destroyed. "You agreed that you would cease medding in the universe, should you lose."

I AM NO FOOL, ELLIMIST. WHILE THIS OUTCOME IS MOST UNSATISFYING, I UNDERSTAND THAT IF I SHOULD FIGHT, IT WOULD NOT END WELL. YOUR DESTRUCTION, MY DESTRUCTION, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE UNIVERSE. WITHOUT A UNIVERSE, I COULD NOT SEEK ENTERTAINMENT IN THE ELIMINATION OF RACES. WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE ME DO? The Ellimist smiled.

"It seems that with this game, you've become wise enough to see that I will refuse any further requests for more games."

I WILL ADMIT THAT I HAVE LEARNED FROM THIS DEFEAT. I BELIEVE THAT FROM NOW I WILL WATCH MY REMAINING PIECES AND WITNESS THEIR DEMISE, OR PERHAPS THEIR SURVIVAL.

"If you meddle with their fate, I will know." The Ellimist spoke simply. It was not a warning or a threat. It was a statement that promised trouble for Crayak should he inflict anything upon any other galaxy or planet with his handful of broken Yeerks.

THEN THIS IS GOODBYE, ELLIMIST.

----------------------------

3 Years Later

There was a dangerous smile on Jake's face. Rachel's smile. "Full emergency power to the engines," Jake said. "Ram the Blade ship."

The Ellimist's attention was piqued and he appeared in the galaxy system just in time to see a sun that should have provided heat for millions of years supernova prematurely.

GOOD, I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION. The Ketran had felt the disturbance and his displeasure showed on his face. BEFORE YOU ACCUSE ME OF BREAKING MY PROMISE, I SUGGEST THAT YOU LISTEN TO WHY I WANTED TO CALL YOU HERE. YOUR PRECIOUS ANIMORPHS ARE ABOUT TO BE CAPTURED AND ABSORBED.

"Explain." The Ellimist asked almost coldly. Crayak had no business bringing his destruction to an innocent part of the universe.

THE ENTITY WHO HAS ABSORBED THEM IS NONE OTHER THAN THE VERY SAME ONE THAT EXPELLED ME FROM MY OWN REALM IN THE DISTANT PAST.

"I do not see what this has to do with me. I may have been attached to them, but it is no longer my place to meddle, just as it is yours not to destroy suns and leave planets helpless in darkness." The Ellimist was close to reacting with action. The bright red eye that faced him stared him down.

THIS ENTITY IS STRONGER THAN I AND NOW HAS ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH TO REALISE THAT ABSORBING ITS POPULATION WILL MAKE IT EVEN MORE POWERFUL. IMAGINE ALL THE HUMANS ON EARTH WITH SPECIAL EXPERTISE, SCIENTISTS AND PROFESSORS AND COMMANDERS OF ARMIES. THE ENTITY WILL MAKE USE OF THIS KNOWLEDGE TO TAKE OTHER WORLDS AFTER. I IMAGINE THAT ABSORBING EARTH'S KNOWLEDGE WOULD MERELY BE THE PRECURSOR TO IT TAKING THE ANDALITE HOMEWORLD. The Ellimist, feeling as he did about both humans and Andalites, lowered his arms immediately. WHEN IT HAS ABSORBED ENOUGH RACES, WE WILL BE THE LAST TARGETS. THE ENTITY IS NOT LIKE US YET. IT CANNOT AFFECT TIME AND SPACE WITH A SINGLE ACTION. BUT IF IT CAN ABSORB OUR POWERS, IT WILL BE ABLE TO DO WHAT IT WISHES WITH THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

"I see." The Ketran was silent as he remembered his own experiences such a long time ago with Father, the being that had also absorbed his friends. It spurred him to decide. "So, I presume you called me here for assistance."

YES AND NO. I WAS THINKING OF PROPOSING THE FINAL GAME. I WILL HANDPICK A TEAM TO FIGHT AGAINST THE ENTITY. YOU WOULD DO THE SAME. NO HOLDS BARRED. WE WOULD SEND OUR TEAMS TO FIGHT THE ENTITY. WHOEVER'S TEAM WINS WILL WIN THE GAME. The Ellimist was silent, digesting Crayak's suggestion. BY USING PROXIES, THE ENTITY WILL NOT KNOW OF OUR EXISTENCE AND IT SHOULD BUY US MORE TIME TO FIND A REFUGE FROM HIM IF THEY LOSE.

"And what if they do lose? Both teams?" The Ketran asked.

WE START AGAIN AND FORM ANOTHER TEAM. YOU SEE, WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE THIS GAME. SO WE WILL KEEP PLAYING UNTIL WE WIN.

"I notice that you say 'we'. Are you suggesting that this game will be a team effort?" The Ellimist questioned skeptically.

I WAS THINKING THAT THE RULES OF THIS GAME WOULD NOT FORBID THE TEAMS WORKING TOGETHER. IF THEY CHOSE TO.

"Rules?" The Ellimist folded his arms, curious to know what Crayak meant.

LIKE I STATED BEFORE, WE WOULD FORM TEAMS. THERE WOULD BE NO RESTRICTION ON WHO WOULD BE IN THE TEAM. FOR THE SAKE OF SIMPLICITY, HOWEVER, I SUGGEST THAT THERE BE A LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF BEINGS IN THE TEAM. SECONDLY, WE ARE NOT TO UNDULY INFLUENCE OUR TEAMS. WE MAY NOT COLOUR THEIR OPINIONS IN ANY WAY AND PREJUDICE THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER. THUS, THEIR FREE WILL MAY LEAD THEM TO CO-OPERATE. IF THIS MAKES THEM MORE LIKELY TO DEFEAT THE ENTITY, THIS CANNOT BE A BAD THING. FINALLY, WE CANNOT INTERACT DIRECTLY WITH OUR TEAMS. WE WILL USE A 'GUIDE' CHARACTER. THIS WILL LIMIT ANY ACCIDENTAL BIAS AND IF THE ENTITY ABSORBS A TEAM AND SIFTS THROUGH THEIR MEMORIES, THEY WILL NOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF GODLIKE BEINGS WHO CAN MANIPULATE TIME AND SPACE- THEY WILL ONLY SEE THESE MYSTERIOUS GUIDES WHO SEEM UNUSUALLY KNOWLEDGEABLE.

The Ellimist thought about Crayak's proposal. "Fix your destruction. In the time it takes for you to recreate the sun you destroyed and repopulate the races that were killed by this, I will consider this." Crayak's immediate movement and the spark that blossomed into a sun surprised the Ketran. If Crayak was so eager to win him over that the malevolent being would willingly create rather than destroy, then this might be serious. The idea of Father absorbing him now that he had godly powers was a rather terrifying idea. As the avian race that had previously lived on the dead planet reached its five-hundredth generation, the Ellimist turned to the red eye watching him. "I accept your challenge. If this being is half the threat that you claim, it is in our best interests to work against it. What are the starting conditions of this game?"

THE STARTING POINT IS EARTH. WE WILL SEND DOWN OUR GUIDES TO EACH TEAM MEMBER WE CHOOSE, INFORMING THEM OF THE THREAT TO THE UNIVERSE. They both flickered and reappeared, hovering above Earth against a dark and starry backdrop. WE MAY USE OUR GUIDES AS OFTEN AS NECESSARY, AS THE GOAL OF THE GAME IS TO SUCCEED, NOT TO LOSE. HOWEVER, WE MAY ONLY ALLOW THEM TO TRANSMIT DETAILED INFORMATION IS WHEN THE TEAM CAN PROGRESS NO FURTHER WITHOUT OUTSIDE GUIDANCE OR EVEN PHYSICAL HELP.

"This seems more than reasonable, Crayak." The Ellimist remarked.

I NOTICE YOUR HUMOUR, ELLIMIST. I NOW CHOOSE MY GUIDE.

"There is no need to announce your sending of the Drode." The Ellimist shook his head. Suddenly a humanoid being appeared, floating in front of the large red eye, its own eyes shut as if sleeping. I CHOOSE DAVID THE FORMER ANIMORPH.

"I was not aware you kept him!" The Ellimist was shaken.

HE AMUSED ME. I ALSO KEPT ANOTHER PLAYING PIECE, MORE FOR DISPLAY THAN ANY OTHER PURPOSE, BUT GIVEN THE EXISTENCE OF THIS GAME, PERHAPS IT MIGHT BE OF USE TO YOU?

"I will be choosing Elfangor, thank you." The Ketran remarked primly as the form of an Andalite flickered in front of him.

INTERESTING. I HAD THOUGHT THAT THIS PIECE MIGHT BE OF MORE VALUE TO YOU. It then appeared-

"Rachel." The Ellimist spoke only one word.

YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THESE GUIDES, BECAUSE OF THEIR NEED TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE, WILL RETAIN FREE WILL, PHYSICAL FORM AND ANY POWER THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE POSSESSED ORIGINALLY.

"Including the power to morph..." The Ketran muttered.

I UNDERSTAND THAT DAVID THE FORMER ANIMORPH IS A NOTHLIT, SO I SUPPOSE HE SHOULD START OFF LIKE YOUR TOBIAS. AS AN ANIMAL THAT CAN MORPH INTO A HUMAN BODY FOR TWO HOURS AT A TIME.

"No. That would not be fair. If this game is to be played properly, David will need to be back in his human body." The Ellimist knew that Crayak was playing on his sense of fairness, but there were more important things to worry about. "I will take Rachel as my guide...you haven't influenced her, have you?" The prone form of Rachel floated over to the Ellimist so that he could check. He examined her mind and found it free of any corruption. "Alright. And what happens when one of us wins?"

YOU ARE WELCOME, ELLIMIST. Crayak remarked almost sarcastically. WE WILL DEAL WITH THAT WHEN IT COMES TO IT. I BELIEVE THAT THIS GAME WILL OCCUPY TOO MUCH OF OUR ATTENTION TO WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURE. NOW, LET US SEND OUR GUIDES DOWN TO EARTH AND LET THE GAME BEGIN.
------------

The One, the being that is now worshipped by the Yeerks, is coming for Earth and eventually, the rest of the universe. The Ellimist and Crayak, not wanting it to gain knowledge of their existence and wanting to preserve the universe, are playing a game that may be the only hope of saving it. So, they are playing a game where their guides, specifically chosen beings that will pass on guidance and aid, will go down and brief their hand-picked teams of people that will be sent out to stop The One before it can reach Earth. There are no holds barred.

You are a being that has been chosen to form part of a team to stop The One. You are in the middle of your normal lifestyle when it is interrupted.

If you are greeted with an apparition of DAVID: You have no idea why this boy has suddenly come to you or who he is. But when he morphs in front of you, you are silenced. Since the Animorphs, the only people that can morph are Andalite tourists or anti-terrorist squads that generally keep themselves very well hidden. Who is this child and why can he morph? Something out of the ordinary is happening.

If you are greeted with an apparition of RACHEL: A young teen appears in front of you. When you hear her name and are greeted with her no-nonsense attitude, you start to question whether you are losing it. Rachel the Animorph died in the last battle of the Yeerk-Human War three years ago. How can she be here before you? Why is she talking to you? Why hasn't she gone off to find the other Animorphs, lost in space and presumed deceased?

As the Ellimist and Crayak can choose anyone they wish to be in their team, you may play any race. As long as there is a reason to why they are on Earth, they are eligible to be picked. Ever since the end of the war, Earth has been more receptive to the idea of other aliens besides the Andalites. There are still Yeerk nothlits among them and Andalite tourists are not too uncommon. Your adventure begins in the middle of a normal day. I will be playing the Guides David and Rachel; if your first post is just a normal one, I will reply with the appearance of your Guide, who will brief you and inform you of the mission. It is then up to you to find your fellow teammates and then decide how you will fight your new enemy. It would be ideal to find a way off of Earth, as if you wait for your enemy to come to you, if he destroys you it will be too late for Earth. No, it would be best to find your enemy first and use the element of surprise to fight him in space. However you prepare for this is up to you.


Character Profile:
Team: (Ellimist or Crayak- remember that they are using Guides so that The One doesn't realise they exist and try and hunt them, so your character will not actually have any knowledge of Ellimist or Crayak and will only know their Guides Rachel and David)
Name:
Age:
Gender:
Race:
Appearance:
Personality:
History:
Morph-capable?: (Y/N. If so, please state morphs already acquired. Remember that it's rare to possess this ability considering that Escafil cubes are highly-guarded, so please also explain why you have this ability. Also, please don't have too many morphs- we don't want people being overpowered! However, for all those answering No, is there anything stopping you from planning to steal one in the RP in order to give you another weapon against your enemy?)

I'm willing to give it a shot. Only one question, Does this person have to be from the modern time period, or can they be from the past or future?

Team: Crayak

Name: Cory "The wolf" Miles

Age: 29

Gender: Male

Race: American Indian descent.

Appearance: Slightly dark skin, eyes like a wolf, always alert  and ready. Average height, heavily muscled build, several scars, most notably a line crossing his mouth where hair can't grow, but theirs no scar. Chisled handsome face.

Personality: A cold calculating killer with a nearly indifferent mask on most of the time. He only lets emotions show when with someone he truly trusts. 

History: A fourth generation assassin. He was born into the Assassin order, dedicated to battling the Templars. His parents raised him with the other families of the order in what is registered as Amish land in Pennsylvania.

Morph-capable: Not.

Why Chosen (Why Crayak sent David after him.): He is, in an defenition of the word, a beast.  He is a master of the bow, knife, and tomohawk. At bare minimum he's had at least least novice level training in nearly every other conventional weapon one could imagine. He  earned his nickname from his tendency to stalk prey, learn their habits, and strike with unmatched precision. As long as he believes he's doing the right thing by following David, he will do anything to help.

This looks, well...awesome! I'd like to join, but just cant think of any character. It's just that, this is very likely to get me scolded, and, as you said that you dont want people too over powered, I assume playing as a green lantern is out of the question. Right Doomhawk?

Well, it's basically set after Animorphs so modern-ish, and it's not a crossover, so sorry, no Assassins or Green Lanterns!

Wait a second, the charact er i described does live in modern times. He's based from the assassins creed video games, where the assassin order still runs to this day.

Title: Re: After the Animorphs: The One OOC [spoilers for entire series]
Post by: Karakae579 on March 12, 2012, 12:36:59 PM
Team: Ellimist

Name: Claire Malcolm (AKA Karakae 579)

Age: 19 (Host body)

Gender: Female

Race: Human-Controller (White American)

Appearance: Claire is about 5' 7" with a somewhat pale complexion. Her hair is very long and pale blonde, accompanied by icy blue eyes. She generally wears a rather tomboyish outfit, including jeans (often a little torn) and a T-shirt. She also prefers to wear boot and a hat, with simple earrings and a pendant. (Her appearance is very loosely based off of Evanna Lynch, the girl who plays Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. This is not intentional, it just sort of happened that way.)

Personality: The real Claire suffers from a form of autism that has left her mental age at that of a 5 or six year old. So when speaking to this girl, you are actually talking to Karakae. Karakae has a very interesting personality. In a lot of cases, she comes across as very playful and easy going; occasionally even a little flirty. She is compassionate and pure hearted, with a will to push forward, no matter what is thrown her way. However, when something she cares about is threatened, she can prove to be a formidable enemy, with sharp intelligence and a fair amount of experience; particularly with a weapon.

History: During the Human-Yeerk war, Karakae actually held the position of a Sub-Visser in her local area. However, as the war grew more violent, she began to question her race's need to cause this war. It was then that she chose to build her own personal Yeerk Pool and break away from her people. She never actually became part of the Peace Movement, however, she occasionally assisted the humans in their war efforts.
After the war ended, Karakae slowly became part of society again, keeping her miniature pool hidden in a safe location and living as a normal human. She came to enjoy this life considerably, as did what she could in order to keep it that way. She works very hard to keep the fact she is a Yeerk a secret and to make sure that her mentally challenged host lives a happy and comfortable life.

Morph-capable?: No, and she probably won't ever, unless absolutely needed. She feels happy with her current body and thinks that it would be silly to morph when she is perfectly capable of fighting on her own. After all, with a Dracon Beam, Karakae does not miss.

yunyun, Karakae579: Looking good!

newBlazingAngel: Yep, modern is fine, but in the Animorphs universe, as far as I know, there's no such thing as Assassins! There's nothing wrong with your character having learned all these skills from somewhere, but bringing Assassins into it is technically crossover territory.

Hopefully we might get another player or two. If not and you're getting bored of waiting, a) we can start anyway, b) you can sign up for additional characters, c) I can play some NPCs on your team in addition to Rachel/David/The One/anyone else in the storyline!

Also, if crossoverfan reads this: this is a pretty flexible RP, there are a lot of choices- you can be an Andalite or a Hork-Bajir or a Yeerk, a human or even a made-up race that ends up interacting with humans after the whole "humans discovering other species in space" thing! The sky is the limit, so don't be discouraged :)

hey Doomhawk, you're playing too right? Since right now, there's only one person on the Crayak's side and two on the Ellimists

If we don't get any more players, then I can fill in the slot on the team if necessary. I'll wait a couple of days, see if we can find anyone else, and if not I'll start the RP itself!

Team: Ellimist
Name: Jonathan Fisher
Age: Twenty-three
Gender: Male
Race: Human

Appearance: Tall, stocky and solid frame. He has tanned skin with military length light brown hair. He has few visible wounds, just a few small scars and marks, leftovers from training. He has brilliant green eyes and triangular face.
Personality: Smart, nice, can be a bit cynical at times and his normal cheery personality often morphs to a dry sense of dark humor during tense situations. He is a bit extroverted and can't stand extended periods of silence. A bit of a charmer (in his mind anyway) he can sometimes get on the nerves of nearby girls with an almost hilarious sense of flirtation. However is is dead-loyal to friends and will put much at stake for them.

History: Fifteen years old when the invasion came to light, he was immediately filled with a sense of awe and adventure, and dreamed of one day cruising the stars with the stars and stripes at his back. So when he turned eighteen, he signed up with the newly-founded United Nations Space Marine Corps. However, his hopes and dreams of cruising the stars and putting down evil alien scum were soon dashed by the fact that Earth only had five ships, all of which were being used for solar system exploration, and there was no real purpose for the marines, asides looking good in front of the Andalite ambassadors.

So after three years Fisher resigned with the rank of corporal. After this he became rather aimless in life, going to college for a degree but dropping out in six months. He had a myriad of jobs for a while; police officer, security guard, banker, janitor, anything to pay the bills and keep going. He began looking at a job in the Office of Alien Affairs, a federal group dedicated to monitoring alien affairs on Earth, including the tracking of Yeerk war criminals who went nothlit and went into hiding. He applied for a position as a field agent and his application is currently pending.

Morph-capable?: No. He has an aversion against morphing, despite it being how his heroes -the Animorphs- fought the Yeerks. He prefers to stick with what he knows how to use best, his guns and fists.

So looks like I'm the only member of team Crayak. That's cool though. Cory keeps a klnife in each boot, a rifle in his pants, a sword in his sleeve, a slockpick in the sole of one shoe and a smaller knife in the other, and a bow and arrow on his back.

Rifles are too long for that to work well, it'd have to be seriously sawed off to pull it out like that, and walking with it in would be stiff and awkward anyway.

OK, I don't want to leave this hanging any longer than necessary- if it's OK with everyone, I'll fill in two slots on Team Crayak as otherwise it would be uneven. If at any point you have any problems with this post, please let me know! Any concerns are valid, e.g. a character I put here is overpowered, or you don't want this character to participate for any reason. If you let me know whether this is acceptable, I can start the RP proper.

Team Crayak:
Team: Crayak
Name: Tak Kerik
Age: 5
Gender: Male
Race: Hork-Bajir
Appearance: Tak is a typical Hork-Bajir- tall, covered in blades. However, the smallest blade on his head closest to his beak, is broken- the point has snapped off and left jagged edges behind and there are hairline cracks running through the blade which cover its surface. He also bears several scars that cross his right eye that may or may not be related.
Personality: Tak may not be intelligent due to the fact that he's an average Hork-Bajir, but he understands enough about life to know that he doesn't trust anyone. He prefers to be alone and doesn't seem any more settled or open around his own race. He has an aggressive streak that emerges in conflict situations and isn't afraid to be aggressive towards anyone of any race. Sometimes, his aggression emerges when he is scared. If he were human and talking to another human, they might surmise that he has depression, though he is a Hork-Bajir and he wouldn't understand the notion even if it was explained to him very clearly.
History: Tak was a Controller for a lot of the Yeerk invasion. The Yeerk in his head killed his wife when she tried to escape the Yeerk pool one feeding session and after he was kidnapped by the free Hork-Bajir and suffered as the Yeerk in his head starved, he joined the colony. He went back to the Yeerks during the rescue mission for Bek, the young Hork-Bajir captured by Yeerks and came face to face with his parents- he was one of the few successful attempts at breeding the race to create more hosts for the Yeerks. He was taken aback at seeing them and in the ensuing fight, they almost killed him. Barely understanding and then striking them down, he returned to the colony and continued to go on raids, becoming vicious in battle. After the war ended and the Hork-Bajir were settled in Yellowstone, he isolated himself from the community and lived alone, unhappy about how he'd lost his family and not wanting to find another wife.
Morph-capable?: No. He doesn't understand morphing and it scares him.

Team: Crayak
Name: Barakan-Esforthel-Garid
Age: 21 (Earth equivalent), 5 (Andalite years)
Gender: Male
Race: Andalite
Appearance: Barakan is slim and lithe with almost sky-blue fur and green eyes. He doesn't look muscly like some of the more renowned warriors and tail-blade fighters from his home planet and doesn't possess a lot of strength.
Personality: Barakan is quick-witted and enjoys situations in which he needs to think, be it chess, battles or simply conversation. He has developed a dry, sarcastic side to him after watching human comedy and interacting with people on a regular basis. While he doesn't care much for his own people, he finds humans interesting in a slightly condescending way, as he sees them as slightly inferior to himself in particular (though superior to the closed-minded military Andalites he's spent most of his life with) and does hold vestiges of the Andalite arrogance. He can be loyal although he, so he will only be loyal to someone if it's necessary or if he respects them. He has two problems: blood and space. If confronted with the threat of being sent into space or having to travel through space, he will have a reaction to it, freezing up or having something similar to a panic attack. When he sees blood, any coherent thought processes stop and he will go into his 'warrior mode', reacting to any perceived attack. He sometimes does not have any memory of these events and his reactions to them. However, in certain morphs, these problems can be neutralised. He believes that there is a deity or guardian being of some sort watching over him.
History: Barakan idolised the war hero Prince Elfangor and joined the military as soon as he was able. Due to the scale of the war against the Yeerks, he was swiftly given access to the morphing power and as soon as he passed his morphing proficiency test, he was assigned to a Dome ship. He served obediently under his prince but became disillusioned as the fight went on. After spending a lot of time in Z-Space, waiting there as reinforcements for any forces nearby so that Yeerks couldn't engage with them as they were hidden there, his surroundings got to him to the extent that he had a minor breakdown. Deciding that this made him a liability, he was transferred to another ship. The task force on this ship was one that boarded Yeerk ships and attempted to gain intelligence from the inside before destroying it. Despite the dangers of this work, he managed to survive several raids and began to become slightly delusional, considering his untreated breakdown earlier.
After the war ended, he returned to the Andalite homeworld and began to research Andalite and other species' belief systems. He gradually found out about Andalite tourism to Earth and decided that he would try it, having heard about the idea of food and having grown sick of a planet that had happily sent him to war only to almost wipe out the races he was supposed to be saving. He also wanted to use the opportunity to try and desensitise himself to space. It didn't work and he spent the entire trip almost catatonic with fear. As soon as he reached Earth, he came to and ran off, leading to a hunt for him. He managed to regain enough of his wits to acquire humans in a Frolis maneuver and began to hide among them, eventually managing to acquire false documentation and get a job. Passing off his regular bathroom trips to demorph as part of an illness/disorder, he eventually made enough money to purchase a small property. Having previously had little access to human culture, he bought a television as quickly as possible to learn more. As a result, his previously strained relationships with co-workers who believed he had some kind of mental problem grew better as he learnt enough about Earth to function among humans. He explained it all away as "social anxiety" and that he had undergone counselling, which changed him.
Morph-capable?: Yes. Morphs: Human (Frolis maneuver), kafit bird, pigeon.


If there are any changes you want made to these characters, if you think they're overpowered or otherwise unsuitable, please post here and advise me! Otherwise, with approval, the RP will start as soon as I receive that approval!

The one question I have is, how did he find out about Elfangor. The only people who knew were the Ellemist, Elfangor himself, the animorphs, and a few higher ranking yeerks that wre likely killed by the end of it. The only people who could possibly tell him, are Visser 3 or one of the animorphs.

Well, I figured that with the war ending, nothing really needed to be kept secret, and Marco did write a book...

Wait, I thought that they mentioned Ax was 4 andalite years old. So then in earth years he was like 13 or 14 or something.

Other than that, yeah, the characters good.

I don't think Marco's book reveled the Ellimist's existence.

Post by: Blazing Angel on March 17, 2012, 11:11:53 PM
That seems like an odd thing to do, to be honest. Now imagine all the Ellemist worshipping cults popping up. OOOH OOH! The Connor's family cult worships the Ellemist! Okay, no more kangaroo talk.

yunyun: Yes, I read that too, but the (admittedly confusing) Andalite wikipedia page stated that 84 Earth months (7 years) was one Andalite year, so I did a bit of calculating and it seemed that 3 Andalite years would turn out at 21 Earth years. I can change it though.

BlazingAngel, ShionSonozaki: Who said that Marco revealed the existence of the Ellimist? I don't think he'd be willing to, considering all the stress that the Ellimist caused them. He's a smart guy, I'm sure he could find a way to write about the whole events without mentioning the Ellimist.

Edit: I realise this looks like I'm trying to justify everything, which I suppose I am just so that the background of the character works out. If these answers are still unacceptable, I will change the character as soon as you reply.

Is it too late to join? By the way,New BA/Doomhawk, any particular reason not to post in original animorphs RP?

I do not believe its too late to join. I've the only one who's posted thus far. I'm going to postin original right now

Howdy! Not too late to join, it's still very early. I haven't posted in Original RP because I feel like I'm posting way too much! I've tried to move it along as much as possible.

And just because there's an even number on both teams, it doesn't mean that you should feel restricted to only join one team. I can edit things if necessary so feel free to join!

Well, newBlazingAngel's character is also somewhat powerful. But the way I intend to run this thing is that it'll be initially rather NPC-centric- what I mean by this is that your characters will spend some time fighting villains that I'll write for rather than each other, so at first it should be OK. However, if your characters all interact, things may change...

Which team are you on? For now I'm happy to allow your character, but I think if someone else disagrees, they have the right to post here and raise any questions or issues. Does that sound OK to you?

Cory's trained but, he's just as much a meatbag as you and me. Squishy and shootable.

Indeed! OK, crossoverfan, welcome! Feel free to post whenever you want!

Edit: This is going awesomely so far, I will reply eventually (I should be asleep right now!)  but a) I'd like to see whether yunyun will post soon and b) I seem to be 8 hours ahead of the time displayed on this forum, so I will be making posts at weird times and then not posting when everyone is around- just to warn you!

Post by: Doomhawk on April 02, 2012, 05:17:44 PM
OK, this is going well!

I'm reposting the same thing in other OOC threads, so here it is again.

On Wednesday I will be unable to post all day, got a flight to catch.
Next week (I think it's the 9th onwards) I'll have no Internet access.
If there are any other times when I have to be absent, I'll let you know, but no more as of yet.

Seeing as we haven't got to a point in the RP where I'm not needed yet, I'm going to try and move things along to the point where you guys are interacting with each other (NPCs are only supposed to guide, not be always present!) If that can't happen, sorry in advance. I hope my absences won't harm this thing too much.

Still there I think, though Rachel has demorphed to try and avoid freaking people out too much!

He's in the room still, I'll post today.

And Angel, it'd be kinda silly for a hunter to actually eat the bullet.

Yes it would be silly, but people do silly things. Do I need to recount the story of the man who died because he had to pee?

Hmm, a good question! Rachel got impatient, but the Ellimist might take notice and teleport her if so desired.

Round about maybe 12pm forum time I'll be setting off on holiday for about a week so I won't be able to post. I'm not sure how this is going to affect things, bearing in mind that I'm kind of responsible for trying to move things on! In light of this, feel free to take artistic license and use the Ellimist/Crayak to move things on if necessary (the guides are only playing a supporting role).
Title: Re: After the Animorphs: The One OOC [spoilers for entire series]
Post by: yunyun on April 07, 2012, 09:33:31 AM
So we play as ellimist and crayak or Rachel and David?
Title: Re: After the Animorphs: The One OOC [spoilers for entire series]
Post by: Doomhawk on April 07, 2012, 10:21:50 AM
No, you don't actually play them, but if there's something you don't know or if you need help, you can write that maybe you heard a voice that advised you- basically indirectly use Rachel or David.

I'll make one more post at minimum before I go.

Just a side note: I am still here and watching the RP. I'm just not sure where to teleport to and who/what I will be there when I do. Or even if I should yet.

Guidance here would be much appreciated. Please and thank you.  ;D

Ah, sorry, I should have clarified! Basically everyone is being teleported to Fisher's (Shion Sonozaki) apartment, where Fisher and Daniel (crossoverfan) are hanging around and waiting for the others, along with the original Rachel.
