(ELITE) The Mahogany Team

Post by Silverishness on Wed Nov 25, 2015 2:30 pm

With permission from Renegade, I'll be starting up a team in Mahogany, Johto.

"]The MAHOGANY Team
    In Mahogany Town, Johto




Restrictions
  • Team will be ELITE
  • No floaters unless needed for team space.
  • Human and Pokemon alike are welcome, humans preferred.(OC humans and Canon are both fine.)
  • No Infected/ Undead beyond NPC's. Both of my leads will absolutely, 100% shoot any Infected character dead.
  • Allowed characters will be essentially "taken hostage" by my leads, so they need to be able to function in that sort of environment. Any rebellious characters will need to be low in number, so my leads may keep control for the majority of the story.
  • Characters willing to assist my leads out of sheer douchiness and/or to spur a later mutiny is welcome, but still needs to be in a small amount. There WILL be a mutiny later on, I just don't want it happening too quickly.





Storyline
The First Arc wrote:Team Rocket had had its time to shine. In the glory days of their reign, they were kings and queens in an already rotting world, reaping the fruits of their empire with ease and excess. Now, years into the Epidemic, two of its highest ranking members are wandering lost fugitives, still searching in vain for their ever-elusive leader.

Ariana and Archer, our two leads, find themselves in abandoned Mahogany Town. Once a critical part of their plans to reclaim their usurped throne, it now lays in utter ruins. Their only hope to find Giovanni may lay deep in the old hideout's recesses, but whether or not they reach it will be determined by whether or not they can hold off from killing the other while they search. The only thing keeping them from doing so is a delicate, unspoken treaty-- each knows that the only way to survive in this world is to not be alone.
Plot Devices
Plot wrote:>Not getting along. Ariana and Archer are at odds, even as comrades. Lots of drama and tension.
>Mutiny. Archer will eventually try to start a coup against Ariana.
>Team Rocket secrets. The team will be delving deep into Rocket territory, and thus, some new surprises will be in store.
>Environmental hazards.The old hideout was fitted with dozens of security measures, some of which are still active to this day.
>To be updated

**Team Sheet

Team Roster


Not first come, first serve. Members will be chosen on how well their characters fit in. Please speak to Team Lead before dualing an already existing character.
Shout out to 2KB for the coding format.

Dude, can I join?  =D  I could use Mars or Saturn for this one.  I don't have much for Mars yet (which is why she lacks a WIP) so better bet is probably Saturn, but given our agreement on Mars's relationship with Ariana, we could probably work something out if you'd prefer her.

Oooh, yes, definitely. OuO Either one would be amazing; Saturn would certainly have Mars flashbacks from Ariana, and Saturn and Archer would absolutely bond over being run over by some crazy, fucked up red-head. Mars on the other hand, might help Ariana keep control? I'm loving this idea.

Saturn may have problems with bonding because oh my god Saturn has so many issues right now; it's possible Archer may actually manage to coax him out of his shell, but the second he learns how much Archer truly cares about Giovanni, he'd kind of... shatter. Saturn hasn't had a human friend in a long time, and given the shit that's happened to him, he can't condone someone actively looking up to someone like Giovanni.

So basically that would wreck him because it would force him to terminate whatever friendship they struck up.

As for Mars, it depends on how Ariana plays her cards. Mars has never known her mother and Ariana is a master liar, so if she spins a story that Mars can believe--and I'm sure she can--she'd be more than happy to help her mom out. Until she learns the truth about her-- OOOOOOOOOH SHE COULD BE WHAT STARTS MARS'S REDEMPTION ARC

LIKE MARS STARTS THIS TEAM OFF AS AN ASSHOLE AND IS AN ASSHOLE FOR A LONG TIME AND THEN REALIZES WHAT A BITCH HER MOM IS AND HAS TO CONFRONT REALITY AND

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Fuck me I love the idea of them both joining a little too much.

Atlas-- I gusta, yes. Ouo I will have to warn you that Ariana is extremely sadistic, manipulative, and for a lack of a better word, very, very rapey. I hope your boy will be able to handle that. "Handle" used loosely, of course.


Star-- MMM YES, I'M VERY OK WITH ALL OF THAT. CAN WE? CAN WE PLEASE?

I am so nervous to ask...

But would you be willing to accept this girl?

I have to leave right now, but I promise when I get home, I'll give you a rundown of her History and what I think she could do in the Team.<3

Okay! So, I don't have much in Dazey's profile yet, so I'll summarize it as quickly as I can. x3 I'm leaving out several details so you don't have to read 80 paragraphs, Sil. Lol

Brief Daze History:
Basically, she grew up with social disorders that hindered her life greatly. Her only solace was her Growlithe, Renge, and her siblings.
She met a girl and developed a crush on her (Dazey is pansexual, but she doesn't realize it), but after her crush is killed right in front of her, an alter personality was created in her head as a coping mechanism.

The Core and Alter switched back and forth at random, until finally it went dormant. For a few years.

Once the Epidemic began, she took in an infected Pokémon, and it turned, killing her parents. With no skills in survival, she found her cousin whom took her into his group. But undead attacked camp and Dazey was immediately and wrongly blamed, bringing her Alter back out as many were killed, including one of her own Pokémon. She snapped violently and was banished, for lack of a better word lol.

So, now she's looking for her siblings for different reasons depending on the system member in control. Dazey wants to know they're safe, to be with them again and to be safe. She does hold resentment towards them for leaving, but she pushes it back in her mind.
Alter holds extreme hatred for them as she's the one in mental agony due to everything, driven to violence; she is positive if she ever got her hands on her siblings, she'd choke them to just before death and then shoot them lol.

So I was thinking... Dazey grew up in Johto and she knows what Team Rocket is capable of. If she could team up with Ariana and Archer, she'd willingly be their lap dog, as far as they think. She'd plan to betray them and get to Giovanni, and while she'd not kill another person, she still clings to hope Giovanni will help her because she's painfully naive.
Alter, however, would be a character extremely hard to get along with. Alter won't come out very often, but when she does, she'll be hell on heels lol. Her plot is the same as Core Dazey's, but rather, she'd go about it differently. By wasting people. Because that's how she rolls. Lol, but only if it's necessary for plot; she won't just be a raving lunatic shooting people - her plots are more organized than that lol.

I'm very ok with the idea of someone helping my duo control the other hostages, but I need to ask why she'd betray them -when they're looking for Giovanni and Archer is unflinchingly loyal to him- in order to get close to Giovanni and earn his favor? Also, help her with what?

Not trying to nitpick, but I need most of the details to make sure that everyone is a good fit XD

Frick, I'm sorry that didn't make much sense. I was sooo tired, but I didn't wanna put off writing that message. x3
Perhaps betray wasn't the quite right phrase lel. She just wouldn't be completely loyal, it would just be a facade; she's using them.
And Giovanni, being who he is, Dazey would imagine he knows exactly where her siblings are. She's an idiot, but it's enough motivation for her to try. ^^

Oh, I don't think you're nitpicking! ^^ In fact, if anything doesn't work, I'd be happy to change it to fit better. <3

As a note, I'll ask for a few rounds [at least one] between each new character appearing, as Archer and Ariana will need to consolidate power before moving ahead. So, it'll take a bit of time before the team is full, lolol

I'd like Phoe to apply to the team first, though. The rest of the roster can be in any order, so y'all don't have to worry about who goes where. Just make sure not everyone shows up all at once. XD

In any case, I'd like to start the team as soon as possible, so please work to get those profiles done ouo

Ok, so I'd like to have a nice order for y'all coming in. Because I only want a single user per few rounds, we need to have an order of users so we can follow that order and not get confused about who'll be next to come into the team. (I'm super sorry for being this anal, but this is pretty delicate lololol)

It'd be best to go with who has their profiles ready as opposed to those that need more time. I know a few of you have yours finished, so I'd prefer those first ouo.

Thanks, y'all~

Alrighty, Lynn/Max is ready to go, so she can be next  after the dust settles with Fenix if need be. If someone else really wants to be next though, I won't have any objections.
