Name: Sinima
Represents: Cinema, TV, Fame
Bio:
God of Cinema, Sinima is always interested in a good show. He came to life as soon as the idea for motion pictures were concieved, and he has thrived ever since. Sinima gains his powers from those who are entertained, and those who seek fame through his medium. He is known for being outgoing and tends not to take things seriously, always knowing that all things end, and others begin, preferably with a flash.

Sinima demands constant entertainment, with good twist, an interesting plot, and well developed characters. Flashy visuals are also a must. If he finds something boring, he will be sure to end it, for good. Fun loving and an entertainer himself, Sinima will sometimes go out of the way himself to put on a great show for all to see. Often appearing as a caricature, Sinima will present himself either as a strapping young man with short blond hair and pearly white teeth. Or, he will present himself as a taller, older gentleman, with a handlebar mustache and a suit with top hat. Either way, Sinima will entertain, and he will do it well.

________________________________

Name: Mister Woodholly (pronounced Wood-olie)
Age:42
Affiliated with: Sinima
Bio: Writer, producer, and director, Mister Woodholly is a man of the movies. Renowned for his creative imagination and quick wit, many either see him as a genius with a golden heart or a bitter man with a sharp tongue. He is a man of the plot, and often desires to have all loose ends wrapped up neatly, and with a great ride in between the intro and the resolution. He is a man of entertainment and will often seek it out, or, if non is available, make it happen. He began enlightened by Sinima after finishing his masterpiece, Title of Movie Here. Sinima was so moved, so shocked that a mortal could have done such a thing, that he enlightened the mortal to be his subject of choice, his, protagonist.

Mister Woodholly can be found now hanging out with many of the famous socialites of our time, he is tall, handsome, always with a five-o-clock shadow and always, ALWAYS, clean.

Abilities:
Plot Mover: Sinima bestowed Woodholly the ability to spice even the most boring events up
Awesome one liners
Mister Woodholly has the uncanny ability to summarize the entire events problems in one line.
SFX
Mister Woodholly has been granted by Sinima the power to add some flare to regular events. That explosion a bit weak? Not anymore. Those tree's boring and dead? How about MAGIC trees that TALK and MOVE and are full of color? Those dogs -not- talking? You get the idea.
Make-up specialist
He is able to make himself look like most things or people, provided he has the essentials. *Breaks out compact*
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Name: Chalybs
Represents: Industry
Bio: Born in the late 1700's with the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, Chalybs has since grown into one of the most influential gods in the pantheon.  From steam power and smelting, to the production line and electricity, to nuclear power and automation, he has always remained on the forefront of technological advance, coaxing it in whatever direction would best serve his needs.  Unscrupulous and greedy, he believes only in production for the sake of production, going to any length to maximize humanity's output by any means necessary.

Despite his overarching goal of maximizing results while minimizing effort, he is far from lazy.  He is constantly at work, overseeing and directing the works of man across the globe.  Ever oilwell, every factory, every power plant has his fingerprints all over it, to say nothing of war.  His pawns in the past have included the likes of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Ford and Hitler.

While in the past he has often worked alongside Vockt in furthuring their mutual interests, he is fully capable of operating perfectly well without his coorperation.



Just the God for now.  I wanted to stake my claim in this one.  I'll create my human shortly.

Name: Doctah OG
Represents: Hip-hop, Rap, Gangstas
Bio: From the hood Doctah OG has been the lord for nearly 40 years. His worshippers, being the G's that they were, gained numbers quickly, making him the youngest Major Deity. His enlightening is rarely rejected but when it is he does his best to **** you over, at least until he forgets at the end of the month.

His people created rhythmic music, the lyrics to which spoke preaches of the Ol' Doctah. The lyrics were fast and flowing bouncing on the beats of drums and the scratch of records. He spread across the planet over the airways under the guise of normal music and eventually created colonies in Europe and Canada, where the upper class accessed it as a new form of music and spread by word of mouth to the upper class of the USA where he was reborn in greater strength.

Name: Sly Mikey T
Age: 28
Affiliated with: Doctah OG
Bio: Born and raised in a Dr. family Michael Tibornes, Sly Mikey T to the public, was impressed at a young age. He started making rap when he was 14 and started hanging out with some other rappers in the hood. Three years later Michael, at the time Mikey, started doing coke with some other disciples in LA and began to sell his CDs and songs to a big record company.

Abilities:
Bust a rhyme: Blessed by Doctah OG, Mikey T can bust rhymes and rap for hours without getting boring. His rhymes sing the gospel and can get other member of the faith to join Mikey in whatever he raps about.

What you just say *****?: Mikey has an intimidating presence and make smaller people back down. His height of 6'8"and weight of 250 lbs makes most people smaller than him.

Pimped Ride: His car is pimped with a speaker system capable of drowning an entire 4 block radius in the sound of rap, unfortunately his car can only be on for 3 hours at a time because of the volume. The sound can stun nonbelievers and attract believers, making the area safe for all believers for the next three hours.

Name: Xenocrates
Represents: Democracy
Bio: Xenocrates is a man forgotten by the annals of history, born a mortal in ancient Greece, his name meaning "Foreign(or Strange) Power" in Greek. He learned to speak basic words at the seemingly impossible age of three months old, and spoke unusually clear sentences when he was five months old. When he first began to play with other children, he would immediately convince them that he was someone to look up to and follow. By the age of seven, he'd formed a quorum of followers, including a number of older children. Through his command, Xenocrates became something of a child-dictator over the other children in his city, using his followers to assert dominance, claiming "territory" and other actions as part of Xenocrates' childhood games.

When the children and he grew up to an age where they could assert true dominance, Xenocrates was immediately thrust into control over a good portion of the city. Unsatisfied with the current tyrannical leadership of his city-state, Xenocrates rallied more to his cause, and sparked a day-long civil war that resulted in the execution of the city-state's tyrant. Installing himself as their leader, Xenocrates sought to develop a system of government wherein no such tyrant could rise again. This system eventually became Democracy. However, his success was to be short-lived, as his city was destroyed by a volcano which he barely survived.

From then on, he and a small entourage wandered the Aegean, Xenocrates teaching democracy wherever he went. Usually, he and his band were run out of town by a city-state's oligarchs, but they found a longer-term home in Athens. There, he managed to influence Solon, as well as the Areopagus. However, being a foreigner, he was principally excluded by most high class Athenians.

Despite his life in Athens being rather low for him, he heard of revolutions in most of the city-states he'd visited before, where the lower classes attempted to establish his democracy as their government. Though this gladdened Xenocrates, this news also reached the Athenian nobles, whom began to view Xenocrates with fear. Solon warned his friend about this change of perspective among Solon's peers, but Xenocrates refused to leave Athens. Instead, he attempted to incite a rebellion amongst the Thetes, the lowest Athenian class. The military was quickly called to put down the rebellion, but Xenocrates wasn't lucky enough to escape this time. He was publicly executed as an example of what happens to rebels.

Instead of quietly moving on into the afterlife, Xenocrates suddenly found himself in the realm of the Gods. The Gods were, of course, shocked that a mortal had joined them, but Xenocrates had passed the boundaries of mortality. He managed to determine that through his execution, he had been seen as a martyr for the cause of Democracy, glorified to an inhuman point by those he had taught in life. Through their fanatical following of him, they had thrust him into Godhood, as the God of Democracy, for he had forged the first formal system of democracy.

As time went on, and democracy's power declined, Xenocrates experiences a long dark age, surviving on the few governments and organizations of people that governed themselves democratically, until the resurgence of the ideals of democracy during the European Enlightenment. Since then, Xenocrates has only grown in power, managing to influence the American Revolution and help form the first nation built on Xenocrates' principles, seeding democratic ideas in the minds of the American leaders whenever possible. Since the times of 18th century, he has grown enormously in power, as democracy has spread across the world with his helping hands.

Xenocrates always maintains his image as he was just before death, somewhat elderly, white-haired, and with a long white beard. Practically the embodiment of the stereotypical Greek philosopher, he wears a simple white tunic. He sees little point in changing his appearance as some of the other Gods do.

Name: Catherine Xavier Black
Age: 26
Affiliated with: Xenocrates' "Chosen"
Bio: Catherine, like all democratic politicians, is closely monitored by Xenocrates. She has had a meteoric rise from political obscurity, having given many key speeches that helped shift the balance of opinion in her favor on many hotly-debated topics. She was born in the dregs of society, but with a combination of innate talent, education, and seductive looks, has managed to rally a massive number of people behind her in a relatively short period of time, propelling her into the political limelight.

Her achievements and abilities have gained the attention of Xenocrates, who has declared her his "Chosen" politician for now, supplementing her natural talent with his godly touch. However, she remains unaware that a God favors her, and personally doesn't even believe in Gods, subscribing to an atheistic viewpoint.

Abilities:
Golden Tongue: Catherine is incredibly charming and convincing, unusually able to influence people through the power of speech, especially those with weaker minds.
Golden Body: Catherine's drop-dead gorgeous body augments her ability to charm or manipulate. She almost radiates youth, light, and sex appeal, with Xenocrates quietly helping to increase this radiance.
Xenocrates' Favor: Xenocrates occasionally guides Catherine, planting ideas and bringing quick answers and solutions to complex political questions to present themselves to her. With his help, Catherine has found herself never stumbling to answer a reporter's or citizen's questions.

Everything looks good right now. The only bio I've got issue with is Badgers.

Pick either a god of music or a god of drugs, but not both.

I'll have my own bio up in a bit.

I will add, for certain "old" gods that may still be around (like gods of war and death), I think they should be unplayable and maybe off in their own separate place. We should be focusing on these new gods.

Name: Inzi (Kitty)

Represents: Flight

Bio: Ever since man could walk, he dreamed of flying. On December 17, 1903 it finally happened and the god of flight was born. Inzi oversees all things aeronautic up to and including space vehicles. She enjoys spending most of her time in the form of a bird, flying about the vast open skies. As one of the youngest gods, Inzi tends to ignore her duties and is frequently absent from divine gatherings. How the others feel about this is of little consequence to the free-wheeling goddess, she'd rather have fun. Not that there's much the other gods can do to reign her in. Inzi is quite powerful, despite her age. Plus, many of the other gods would rather see the goddess of flight happy than suffer airport delays.

No, you won't, because that's not recent, not what we're going for, and not a good idea anyway. Get a real idea, that's recent. Have you looked at all the ones so far?
