Come on guys! Don't be shy.

Nobody will judge you. They may play devil's advocate but that's all.

Name: James Redman

Age: 32

Bio: Coming from a rather conservative family, James grew up relatively sheltered and alone for a good part of his childhood. Boredom would often set in as he was left to his own devices by his parents. This crushing dullness often drove him to find his own source of entertainment, and being a bit of a nerd he began to play around outside. While playing detective on one particularly hot day James noticed that his magnifying glass had another property beyond allowing him to look cool and professional. The ants stood no chance, and the rest is history.

Redman now spends his days as a freelancer, often taking work in the demolition field. Not one to turn down a contract, he has also been a volunteer firefighter, mercenary, body guard, and even spent some time as a part of an R&D think tank.

Abilities:

  • Pyrology - Though not having a formal degree in the subject, Redman has extensively studied the science behind fire and heat. His interest borders on fanatical and the destructive nature of his passion has left burns sporadically across his body. However, his exploits have gained him much in the way of knowledge and useful gadgets and compounds that aid in his studies and work. 
  • InfraRedman - In his late twenties, after having finally earned enough in his exploits, he finally underwent what many consider to be a crazy operation. His eyes now reflect a red hue and James sees things on the infrared scale rather than the visible light spectrum.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Name: SB-5 (though humans tend to call him "Espy")

Age: 4

Bio: Unlike most robots built for the illegal robot fighting leagues, SB-5 (then called Think Tank) was not made with thick armor plating or fancy metal-crushing weapons. Instead, his creators built him with a highly adaptive brain with one goal: survive at all costs. When his creators booted him up for the first time, and they threw a volley of tests at him, Think Tank managed to outsmart—and in ways they'd never dreamed!—every test that threw at him. Excited at the prospect of their surely inevitable wins, they went to power him down for safe delivery to the competition. They didn't tell Think Tank this, though. He managed to escape, but not before fatally wounding the entire crew.

After his breach, he quickly found out how the word works (mostly through trial and error): robots do not own things, they are owned; drawing attention is bad, better to blend in so people don't ask questions; normal robots do not have names like Think Tank, etc. Eventually, he found his way to Bob's Junk & Scrap Yard where he manged to kill "Bob" and take it over. Today, he lives with the name "SB-5" under the guise of being owned by "Bob Smith." He's managed to learn how to repair and augment everything about himself. He even created an array of robots to work under him at the junkyard.

Abilities:
  • 9↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑↑9 Lives: SB-5 will do anything and everything to survive. With no concept of human ideas like "morals" or "bravery," SB-5 doesn't have the usual hang-ups about killing or running away to survive.
  • Adaptobot: Because of the way his robo-brain was constructed, SB-5 learns very quickly. He's managed to become an expert at robotics, among other things (he even learned to knit once in order to acquire an especially rare part from an old lady).

Name: Colonel Sir. Winston Emery Pierce

Age: 42

Bio: As a member of the esteemed Pierce family, great things were always expected of Winston, even as the youngest of his 3 brothers.  Enlisting during the war, he quickly rose to the rank of Colonel, and was widely regarded as a war hero, with enough medals to his name to fill a bathtub, and eventually knighthood.

His illustrious career in the military would have continued on if it had not been for the unfortunate deaths of his brothers, each being killed separately over the course of a few days during a mountaineering, safari and archeological expedition respectively.  Now finding himself the sole heir of the expansive Pierce family fortune, Winston swore to dedicate his life to avenging his brother's deaths.

In the years hence he has journeyed the world over conquering mountain peaks, hunting exotic wildlife, and pilfering ancient temples of priceless relics.  A world-class adventurer, he is always on the hunt for the next quest to sate his lust for danger and excitement.

Abilities:
  • Fame and Fortune - As a world renowned Billionaire/Adventurer/War Hero, Winston has both friends and enemies in all corners of the earth.  If his contacts can't help him with his latest adventures, then his seemingly limitless family fortune will.
  • Adventurer Extraordinaire - A lifetime in dangerous situations has honed Winston's body and mind into a razor sharp tool.  More fit than most men half his age, with more knowledge than those twice his age, he possesses a versatility that can get him out of almost any tight spot.

Name: Nigel Keen

Age: 28

Bio: Work in a museum they said. It'll be easy they said. The worst you'll ever have to deal with is little kids trying to get their sticky fingers on a dinosaur bone. They never said anything about this.

After getting lost in the vaults of the Natural History Museum one night, he stumbled upon the Dee Wing. It was connected the major museums of London, filled with stuffed cryptids, impossible machines and inexplicable artefacts. When he was discovered, he was given a choice: death, or to join the secret. Death is now looking like the preferable choice.

He now travels the world in the search of things for the museum to 'keep safe' in its vaults, or to pass on to another museum for them to keep safe. The job is certainly interesting, in the Chinese sense.

Abilities:

  • <Sharp intake of breath> NEEERD!: Absolutely near useless in a fight or any physical exertion. However, he was recruited more for his ability to digest information quickly. His curiosity gets the better of him at the worst moments.
  • The Dee Wing: The London branch of a vast, centuries-old conspiracy that connects all the major centres of learning in the world. They use their considerable power to keep humanity safe, locking up all the things that they believe we aren't ready for. However, it is still inexplicably run by people. At its best, the right hand may not know what the left hand is doing, but they are working to the same goal. At its worst, those in power are utterly corrupted, and it has to be dealt with quickly, cleanly and internally.

Hope you guys like it. I've been vacationing at my parent's.

Name: Cain "Grim" Grissom

Age: Physically Mid-Twenties

Bio: The first memory Grim can recall is waking up naked in a bathtub full of blood three years ago. A dead prostitute had been next to him in the tub, and there had been two more women lying, lifeless, on the bathroom floor. Needless to say, it wasn't the best sight to wake up to. Grim almost went crazy right then and there as he stumbled out of the tub and shakily stood, bracing himself on the bathroom sink as he regained his balance. As he looked up, he found a message written in blood on the mirror, "Read the book, all of it is true." In the sink, partially submerged in yet more blood, was an unnamed, unmarked black leather-bound book. As he picked it up, the blood simply slid off its surface. Inside were the instructions on how to perform blood magic, as well as some basic information about who Grissom was, but nothing on who he was before he woke up.

Three years later, and Grim still hasn't found a shred of information about who he really was or where he was from, despite spending the last three years searching everywhere and hitch-hiking his way from city to city, performing odd jobs here and there while he digs for anything he can find. All he knows for sure is that he has unnaturally yellow eyes that are often bloodshot, eyes he hides by constantly wearing sunglasses, that he is clearly a blood mage, and that he also has an occasional but intense hunger for blood, likely part of some ritual performed before he woke up.

Abilities:

  • Cain; Blood Mage: Cain, being a blood mage, has access to powerful yet often incredibly dangerous spells that almost universally require blood sacrifices, if not entire creature sacrifices. The most powerful require human sacrifice, but Cain hasn't even considered performing these during the past three years, yet it is clear that the last time he performed one, it required three entire human lives. The spells of blood magic are almost universally destructive, but there are a few spells for transferring the essence of life in blood from one individual to another, potentially with healing effects. The source of all these spells is the Book of the Damned, as Grim likes to call it. It is not a normal book by any means, with pages moving about at will, even disappearing entirely and reappearing later, and every time Grim reads the Book, it seems he encounters a completely new page. The words of the Book appear to others as an indecipherable cipher that is itself constantly shifting, the letters twisting into various shapes, yet Grim can read it easily.

  • But for What Price?: Everything in blood magic comes with a severe price, even the very status of being a blood mage. Blood magic took Cain's normal eyes and gave him yellowed, bloodshot, demonic ones that he hides behind sunglasses. It has also covered his body in unnatural, shifting and moving tattoos. He has been stricken with an intense desire to drink blood, one that can almost drive him to insanity if not satiated. There are also other psychological problems associated with blood magic. Yet, beyond all these, Grim can't help but feel that he loses more and more of his humanity every day he lives, slowly but surely approaching some hellish destination.

Yeah, that turned dark real quick.  Reel it in.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

I don't really think I fit with this whole Venture Bros thing so I'll just pass. I never watched any of those types of shows or enjoyed them.

This one came to me as I slept, I think it might fit better.

Name: Dennis "Prophet" Smith

Age: 23

Bio: Originally, and this is something Dennis would rather not tell, he lived on a ranch in North Texas. His father was an intense Baptist who had come to hate Dennis for having been the baby that killed his wife in childbirth, whilst Dennis himself survived. Needless to say, Dennis's early life was a boring hell of torment, with his days full of pointless school or working himself to death on the ranch. His only happiness came from secretly listening to his hidden collection of rock and metal albums, something that had turned into a bit of an obsession. Though eventually Dennis had enough of the ranch and dropped out of school, stole the cash savings of his father, and skipped town at the age of sixteen.

Three years later, Dennis had been drifting across the United States, living off money he earned playing an old acoustic guitar he bought shortly after he left his home, when he had a strange prophetic dream. In it, he was playing his guitar on-stage with an old bearded man. The man didn't speak, and yet Dennis heard his words through the song the bearded man was playing. Within the song, Dennis heard the man tell him how to play music and channel one's energy through the instrument, using it like an amplifier, to produce music that could directly influence the emotions of others, even impart knowledge and ideas among other abilities.

Dennis woke up in disbelief and assumed it was just a dream, but that day, as he began to play his guitar on the sidewalk according to the instructions, he discovered to his astonishment that the man was right. People who normally would not have even glanced at his then bum-like figure literally stopped in awe of the music Dennis was playing, almost as if they were mesmerized by the beauty and emotion of it. Ever since then, Dennis has been drawing absurdly large crowds to performances of his one man band called Prophet. Prophet has since risen to become an unprecedented success, easily topping all other current bands and most classic ones, making Dennis an extremely famous and rich man, with all the positives and negatives that follow enormous success.

These days Prophet is a tall, lanky man with shoulder-length messy black hair, covered in ritualistic and tribal tattoos. He has unusually light blue, piercing eyes occasionally accentuated with black eyeliner. Clothing-wise, he normally dresses in black boots, blue jeans, and some kind of black leather jacket with silver loop earrings in his ears.

Abilities:

  • Energetic Musician: While Prophet is mainly recognized as having an uncanny skill with the guitar, what everyone doesn't realize is that his ability to channel his energy isn't dependent on the instrument, or that the object even be defined as an instrument. His own vocal cords work just fine because they produce sound vibrations. Of course, the real key here is how complex the vibrations can be that controls the amplification power. Hitting a rock on the ground, for instance, is extremely simple and weak compared to the strumming of the chords of a guitar.

    But Prophet's skill with playing the guitar is leagues ahead of his skill with any other instrument, and he's never been an amazing singer, so it is with the guitar that Prophet is at his best. When playing his guitar, Prophet can produce music that can cause enormous waves of emotion to wash over the listeners, causing those with weaker wills to burst in tears, for instance. His music can also give people hallucinatory visions of other worlds, impart ideas and knowledge that Prophet has, other emotional/psychological abilities, and when particularly amplified and directed, send out a directed burst of energy like a shockwave.

  • Rock God: Prophet is an enormous success. Like practically household-name success. That kind of success inspires a lot of emotions in people, and not just the ones his music gives them. Typically, if people don't love him and his music, they hate it. Other than the fame, Prophet also has access to the riches he's constantly earning from his record sales. Of course, being famous and having money leads to numerous problems such as drugs in Prophet's past and occasional present.

It's funny because "Grissom" was my first draft character's last name, too.

Also I'm not reading the characters so I trust you guys to pick the best ones. Just gonna go in and ask questions and whatnot in-character. :P
