Genetic Manipulation seems more like a future God to me. Try to think of current culture and trends.

Revising my god now, and giving my godly avatar apon the herp-derp world.

Name: Vockt
Represents: Capitalism
Bio:Vockt was born in 1602 with the creation of the Dutch East-India Company. Instead of being a god of wealth or luxury which would be expected, he is a god of self-interest, profit making and material goods; whilst similar to Wealth, it is distinct in the respect that Wealth was traditionally reprisentative of inherited wealth, of Kings, Lords and the Land owners which had a monopoly over their assets - whilst Vockt's control is over that of the merchant and the buisnessman, whose assets could die the next morning or be stolen by his own collegue.

With the spread of the Free Market and of Capitalist ideals in the 18th and 19th century, his power spread to all four corners of the globe. Vockt constantly tries to keep the equilbrium between huge Corperations, as the more competion created within his domain, the more worship he recieves and the more powerful he gets. Cities such as New York and London were his powerhouses and the richer part of Western Society was his playground, which led to his overall cockiness when dealing with other Gods - in his own mind the Old Gods would trade their Godhood for mortality in order to get the sort of power he held.

Depsite his dominance in much of the mortal world, his crippling flaws include his cockyness, his gambling attidute and the tendancy to ignore the equal powers of the other Gods - Vockt cannot understand that mortals have needs beside goods and money. Many times he has been punished by his collegues for his cockyness and attempts at grabbing more than his fair share of the world. Karl Marx's creation of Communism, the Stock market crashes in 1929 and the 1980s, creation of the Soviet Union and many, many worker Strikes were all punishments on Vockt's un-godlike attitude.


Name: Joseph Reyd
Age: 106
Affiliated with: Vockt
Bio:
Born the son of an American-Irish buisnessman in New York in 1905, he quickly found the attention of Vockt by being one of the best buisnessmen of his age. Not willing to be outdone, he quickly made Reyd a divine offer just after the Wall Street Crash - as long as the wheels of capitalism turned and Vockt is strong, then Reyd will live eternally as well as gain the assets of the old Avatar of Vockt, who died when Vockt's powers wayned when the stock market crashed. In return, Reyd would serve the cause of Capitalism - making sure no one person gained absolute control over the market and thus destroy all competion, and preventing the forces of Socialism from rising up and destroying all Vockt depended on.
He then essentially ceased to exist. He because the perfect, faceless capitalist. He became a man in the shadows, thanks to Vockt's powers he stopped physically aging at middle age, and so became indistinguishable from the crowd. He bribed, negociated and fought to keep the money moving - persuading governments and revolutionaries to go to war so that weapons markets would be profitable. Whilst sometimes he questions whether his means are correct, he knows that everything that the average mortal on the street holds dear depends on Capitalism, and Gods help anyone who tries to get in the way of money.

All things are done for power, and money is power.

Abilities:

Infinite Buisness Cards - His endless influence on the realm of Buisness and Capitalism means that he has an encyclopedic knowledge of everyone whose anyone. Because of this, he can call in a favour, a bribe, or a consultation with anyone whose skills are required to complete any of his tasks. Some of the more capitalist governments in the world can be twisted and turned by his actions - he is the shadowy man at a President's side, able to crash an economy of a country at a moment's notice.

Silver Tounge - He has an almost un-natural control over buisnesspeople and the main controllers of money. This has led to much of the buisness world being in his pocket, and anyone who strays is mercilessly attacked by their competetors.

Bourgeois - Due to having over a century to build up his assets, as well as inheriting his successor's wealth, he has a huge amount of wealth accumilated. Combined with his divine negociating skill and his huge amount of contacts, he could bribe anyone to turn against their friend, their family and their country.

It's kind of odd that the god of capitalism doesn't actually believe in the free market.

I might play if I could think of an interesting enough god, but I can't come up with anything right now.
Not a winner anymore.

I could admit I'm lazy, but instead I'm going to say that I'm the new Shakespeare and do not adhere to any formal spelling rules.

Name: Arthur "Hawk" Manray

Age: 119

Affiliated with: Inzi

Bio: Known as the ace-of-aces, Arthur Manray is the greatest pilot in history. He also bears the distinction of being older than the god he serves by over a decade. Manray became famous around 1916 for his skills as a fighter pilot and caught the attention of the newly-born Inzi. She was impressed that a mortal had taken so quickly to flight and challenged the Ace to a grand race across the English Channel. It was a cold winter day when the pair set off from their marks and the going was tough. Still, in the end the victor was Manray. Whether it was Inzi's inexperience that cost her the race or whether Manray really was that good, it didn't matter; after all was said and done the goddess rewarded Arthur with her blessing and he became her mortal custodian. After that day, Manray changed his name and vanished. Most assumed he'd simply be shot down by some younger, better pilot but that just wasn't the case.

Currently, Hawk, as he is known, lives the life of your average twenty-something. He works as a courier for the followers of other gods, delivering sensitive materials wherever they need to go. Both he and his master tend to blaze their own trail, rather than get entrenched with whatever foolhardy endeavor the other gods are working on.

Abilities:
Does it fly?: Because if it flies, Arthur can pilot it.

Improviser: This is one of Arthur's own abilities and not something granted to him by Inzi. During his original youth, pilots didn't have nearly as many options when it came to winning a fight. As such, Arthur grew accustomed to hurling sacks of potatoes at other pilots or shooting at them with his pistol.

Fall with style: While Arthur cannot fly, he has been given the ability to fall gracefully. These divine secrets allow him to take to the skies without the need for a parachute. A helmet is still recommended, though.

Good aim: Being a good pilot also means being able to hit your mark, be it a small runway or another pilot. Arthur is good at these things.

I'll play too, if you don't mind. D:

God:
Name: Ched
Represents: Networks, Internet
Bio: Other gods consider Ched a cocky adolescent. In his own eyes he is the winner, the one that will determine the future of the entire human race. His quick progression to a powerful position due to the spread of the internet combined with the fact that he is basically a "newborn" among the gods, being merely a few decades old, left him megalomaniac and aloof. He thinks he knows it all as he claims to have access to every single source of knowledge but doesn't realize that there is more than what his domain encompasses. To him, human interactions is everything. People are supposed to talk, they always did, and networking is the most efficient way to provide communication and will surely outshadow all other forms of communication and even organization entirely.

Due to his nature, he is what could be considered an outsider to the other gods, though by choice. He think of most of the other deities as old fogeys or close-minded and considers Sinima horribly outdated and Abraxas as superfluous. There are only a handful of gods he seems to have less negative relationships with, most of all his slightly older twin brother Mattik, the god of electronics.

Ched prefers not to materialize at all and instead appears to his followers or mediums in chat rooms or in mysterious emails. Among the few occasions he will actually take form of an adolescent will be during god meetings.

Human:
Name: Salley Fox
Age: 33
Affiliated with: Ched
Bio: Salley Fox runs the biggest networking platform on the globe, though she didn't invent it herself. Infact, she bought the rights of that platform from its creator and made it popular. So popular infact that it has become the most important source of information among companies, which Salley glady provides in exchange of various services or money. Some years after her site became vastly popular Ched became increasingly aware of her and admired what she did. Being very impressed with her work, he contacted her and offered her to become his agent. Despite not wanting to work for anyone, she accepted the deal. Not only was she blessed with a hint of Ched's might, but also she set herself the goal to sometime replace Ched, when the time has come.
Abilities:
Wireless Blessings: Among one of the blessings Salley got from her patron god is the ability to access the internet anytime and everywhere. While this looks a lot like telepathy from the outside, it's most often more like a one-way communication, as her partner will rarely respond as quickly as she will. The most useful application of this ability is the way of being the first to notified of global news.
Ruthless: Salley wouldn't be where she is right now if she didn't have the spirit to do anything to win. She would sell her own grandmother if it would advance her career and doesn't mind getting her hands dirty as well.
Connections: Dealing with information gets her to know many influential persons across the globe. Wherever she is, there will be someone to back her up, even though it often involves some kind of bargain of information or money.

Sorry, I was waiting for the great Raz to shun me ::)

I figured out I didn't have to. Pat would do it for me.

And lame, Flisch. I got told no for Internet and A.I. and Networks and such.  :-\

Flisch had a much better name for it than you did. And I told you, you needed to do something different. All of your characters are embodiments of high technology.
