As a young child she was quite bright, already showing her interest in the macabre by watching her first horror film, Poltergeist at age three, and stating her favorite animal as the bat. Lydia also already began demonstrating her ability to see spirits, inheriting the ability from her mother. She lived happily with both her parents as her dad worked in a high profile real-estate office and her mother was a photographer. However, her happy childhood did not last long, for when Lydia was just five years old, her mother died in a horrific car crash returning home from a night out with friends, causing her father to have numerous anxious breakdowns throughout the next few years.        When Lydia was ten years old, her father remarried to a woman named Delia, a very bright woman whom was a huge mother figure in her life. Already a sad, lonely outcast at the age of twelve, this only got worse following her father’s most recent anxious breakdown, resulting in their move to Peaceful Pines, Connecticut. [CANON DIVERGENCE BEGINS] They bought their house not soon after the couple who had lived there had died in a car accident, Barbara and Adam Maitland. They “haunted” the house, and became a second pair of parent-like figures to her. Lydia then began school at Miss Shannon’s School for Girls, though she wasn’t able to make friends easily.         Despite having the increased support from another set of parents, Lydia’s mental health still suffered from being often ostracized by her peers due to her interests. Looking for someone else to relate to, she began to have a growing interest in the background of her deceased mother going through old boxes that Lydia was able to save from their move. Discovering her mother’s wiccan background, she began to work on creating her own connection to the part of herself that she never knew existed, despite it being able to explain her ability to communicate with the dead. She began to save her allowance money to work on purchasing more paranormal books, as well as Wiccan ones.         After saving enough, she ended up purchasing a book about exorcisms, demons, and opening the portal to life after death in hopes to be able to gain communication with her dead mother. However, instead of opening a portal to whatever worldly plain her mother ended up on, she accidentally created a portal in her bedroom mirror to the Neitherworld. This also led to the accidental summoning of the Poltergeist Beetlejuice in an effort to control the portal, and although tentative about his motives at first, she finally felt like she found a friend that understood her [CANON DIVERGENCE ENDS]. Her and Beetlejuice ended up becoming best friends, and almost immediately began going on crazy adventures into his home, the Neitherworld, and she no longer felt as alone as she once did. She even made friends in Beetlejuice’s realm—Doomie, Ginger, and Jacque, and in her realm; Prudence and Bertha. Though she had only one enemy, Claire Brewster, by the time she was thirteen she was much, much happier than the year before. Forever spending her days with Beetlejuice.

rabbit hole.แŸ

rabbit hole .แŸ read & follow, that's all i ask.   โ› โ€ out of character.   won't divulge personal details other than i'm a female from the UK who is over the age of twenty one. my muse is affected by my health, so please be patient with me when it comes to my replies. i'm not ignoring anyone if i don't answer straight away. discord will be given to those who i am writing with / want it, it's for OOC stuff though. tuesday - thursday is family time, so again, patience please. been in the mha verse since last year with various characters (atm, another oc and a canon).   โ› โ€ character.   arisu tobita is a non canon created for the my hero academia verse. she is the daughter of gentle criminal and an unnamed woman. arisu doesn't really know her father considering he started his criminal deeds as she was a toddler. she was placed with her paternal grandparents due to her mother being incarcerated in Tartarus & her father going on crime spree's around japan. arisu's quirk is the exact same as her mother which her grandparents hadn't known at the time, they had just thought she was a little 'disturbed' due to the young arisu talking to herself. as time progressed, both her grandparents decided to place her in a psychiatric ward in hopes she wouldn't end up like her mother, she was only able to get out due to the UA teacher / pro hero shota aizawa having been able to control her quirk for her until she could control it properly. being taken to UA, she was placed in 1B as 1A was already full. ( this will be fully explained in a full bio when the layout / profile is done. feel free to ask questions though. )   โ› โ€ crossovers.   always accepted within reason.   โ› โ€ drama.   please don't bother me with it, i don't engage in it. couldn't care less who is fighting with who, i'm here for writing and making friends.   โ› โ€ relationSHIPS.   mains always wanted, mainly the UA students ofc. just because i have a main of someone, doesn't mean i'll ignore anyone else that write as said character. that sh*t ain't cool. i just have mains 'cause we interact on a regular basis. in terms of ships, i'm open. guess it depends on writing and storylines.   โ› โ€ storylines.   i'm up to date with both the anime and manga. i don't mind being a bit canon divergent for arisu either. since her quirk is pretty open ended and could probably be seen as a bit of a villain-ish one, it's easy enough for me to write her a little AU. nsfw stuff randomly won't be entertained unless it's with her ship partner / someone close.   โ› โ€ writing.   please do not send me random starters, i prefer to discuss. call it annoying or whatever but if i had a million random starters, i'd be swamped. plus sometimes people send vulgar stuff and personally, i don't want it. whilst i write in multi paragraphs, i don't mind adjusting my lengths to other people's needs. i'm very adaptable in that sense.   โ› โ€ art / edits.   all of them belong to me unless stated. i can't draw for sh*t, but anyway haha.

I am for I am.
Current mood:  artistic

There once was a purpose. So driven and true, pure to heart and loved all it knew. The walls, the flowers, the very ideals the banners sored for.Yet one day, like any other, a flame began to grow. In the minds of others and amount the plentiful ashen graves. The discontent and joyous resent, did cast the castle walls a dirty grey. Perhaps that is what started this purpose and turned it astray. From love and innocence to all that be famished and tarnished. To balance out the armor that bullied the prey to a cliff or had their way, that one Saturday was surely a sad and rainy day. Because on that day, the purpose deemed it so. They had been led astray. No more darkness, no more light or do as you say, so fight they did till their mind turned numb and thoughts were lines amidst the numbers. It was all fun and games, and Purpose? had had enough.Enough, surely, was, enough.It was time to end the charade.In it's home, in its bed, to the lambs of prey it met, it coiled around its spit. "Take heed, take voice."It spoke. The purpose on one knee bellowing out to all who dared listen to the whisper. "I am for I am, I am therefore I will be. Do not fear me, do not love me. I am the purpose of many."Standing within and without sin. "You are enough, I am plenty. So let the happiness in."The purpose coaxed with pleasantries. "You are you, I am me. We are one, so lets be happy."

  1. IC and OOC; two different things. Meaning, know the difference. Whatever happens in our writing stays in that writing. Our muses might have chemistry, does not mean us as writers do.2. This follows rule 1. I write Evan a little... rough around the edges. Do not take offense to this. Me personally as a writer, I'm not as rough, I am a sweetheart from some have told me.3. I write very dark themes, blood and all that. If this is something you do not accept, please let me know and I can tone it down. Or, don't add me. 4. I enjoy all ideas. I enjoy writing any length possible, besides one-liners (those stay in stream). But! Do not, I repeat.. DO NOT, come up to me with, 'hello', 'wanna roleplay?'. Either come up to me with some form of idea, a list of what you expect, or don't come to me at all.5. Patience is key with me. I don't have just one account. I have another. No, I will not give it to you. I do take a few days to respond, maybe less. Don't rush me. The only acceptable thing you can do is nudge me within a week.6. No jealousy. Please. This is a multi-ship account. I do not have intentions of settling Evan down. He is a playboy, a man whore if you will. If you do not like this, you can unfriend me. No hard feelings on my end.7. NO DRAMA. I shouldn't have to explain this.8. Have fun.-COULD POSSIBLY ADD MORE TO THIS.

As man took his first steps into the world, Heaven was the first to their aid. The fallen angels that joined Lucifer went to his aid. According to Heaven, they corrupted souls. To Hell, they freed humanity. It wasn't until paradise cut them out that humanity was blinded, some say abandoned. Mortals who saw the heaven-born only witnessed a ball of light. There were some, few in numbers, but some that could see clearly. A diamond in the rough one could say. Those who could “truly see” were allowed to see one heaven-born in their lifetime.The red string was a merciless tactic the fates used on every being.One thing the heaven and hell-born had in common was the torture they faced. Among the heaven-born, the hell-born, and humanity love drove them to insanity. A worse thing, crossbreeding. Throughout the rise and fall of civilizations, hybrids were something they dared but failed to do so. Nephilim. The title is given to the child of a heaven-born and a mortal. In the archives of Heaven, they tell how the Nephilim would be the downfall of Heaven. Because of it, if one were to be born, both Heaven and Hell would hunt them down.Eons passed. As the princes of both Heaven and Hell hung the wings of their enemies, they searched if a Nephilim was born. Love at first sight between an angel — a general for a cherubim legion — and a human. For years they lived a happy life together, until one day. She became pregnant. It was a miracle they were able to conceive, yet they had to hide. Away from Heaven, away from Hell. Eventually, she gave birth and died. The angel looked at the baby in his arms. How could someone so small, so pure, so fragile, be Heaven’s downfall? With his daughter in his arms, he took her to a place to grow. She eventually grew and with her growth, her wings. The angel wanted to protect his daughter in order to do so a sacrifice had to be made. Each time her wings grew they had a ritual, he taught her all the spells he knew from heaven. Helped her manifest her weapons, and trained her. His only rule was to not fight against humans, he called them weak-willed, and his human lover and their daughter were the only exceptions.   The ritual the two followed both heaven and hell-born would shudder. Her wings were to be carved off in order to suppress the angelic energy. Each time they were removed, she had no strength. She was as weak as a baby for a few days. Still, Myra wanted to help others. So she became a doctor, and opened an emergency clinic. One person came in, and they left better than before. Her only goals hide from Heaven and Hell. Accept every patient, no matter what.

1. No minors. I am a 35 year old female behind this computer screen and I don't write with little kids who should not even be on here. 18+ or up, only.2. No drama. I am too old for high school he-said-she-said petty drama about the past and future. If you want to talk things out like adults that's fine, but if you're clearly here to bully me, count me out. 3. Do not rush me for comments or messages. Please have patience when I am unable to get to my laptop and sometimes I do not have access to my computer so I am forced to tolerate being away from it.4. Put some effort into the writing that we're roleplaying out. I don't want to be the one coming up with ideas or motivation for the roleplay.5. Do not steal from me; my edits, information, character, or layout design. I edited, changed, and manipulated to my satisfaction.6. I prefer messages over comments but  you will recieve updates on status stream if I am going to be offline or going to do something important. 8. Don't ask me for personal information including but not limited to; personal email addresses, phone numbers, discord, or physical home addresses. This is a red flag for me and will result in automatic blocking and deleting.9. Put some effort into your posts and don't rely completely on myself to come up with storyline ideas or subjects that we can come up with for the roleplay. Collab with me to write a decent storyline. 10. Do not make this more than a hobby. I use this site to help with my anxiety and depression. It's helped wonders for me making friends and even some enemies, but I have learned from all of it. If it becomes more than a hobby and people make it out to be something else that I'm not comfortable with, I will delete and block them on the spot.

1. No minors. I am a 35 year old female in real life and I am not a pedophile and do not want to be in trouble for acts that I do not tolerate. No thank you.2. Do not steal from me. I worked hard on the div that I have up and do not appreciate when things I work hard on are stolen or ripped off.3. Do not rush me about late comments or messages. I have a life outside of here. Do not assume that this computer is more important than life outside of here; you will be sadly mistaken. 4. Please do not ask for personal information such as email addresses, phone numbers, and personal home addresses.5. Literate writing only. I do not accept anything but literate writing and will ignore any "one word" or "one-liner" written messages, they will be ignored , possibly deleted, and blocked if I'm annoyed enough.6. Do not send or start harassing me about things I have done or said in the past. I do not live there anymore and I am not the same person I was back then. 7. No god-moding. Ishida gets into fights because he is a "bad-boy" in his school, and often gets confronted by other "bullies" that think he's "weaker" than he looks. Ishida might be a beautiful man but he has more physical strength than people give him credit for. 8. Please do not waste your time with intimate relationships with the writer. I am happily taken and writing is simply a hobby of mine which my boyfriend fully understands and supports.9. Put some effort into your posts. I do not want to be the only one coming up with ideas and I do not want to be the only one coming up with the motivation to write out the information that is within the roleplay. 10. Have fun with it! This is a HOBBY. It should not be a chore, a responsibility, or an obligation. Don't make it a "deathmarch." or something like that and let's just have fun writing again. : )

THIS WAS HOME is a discord survival roleplay set in a harsh post-apocalyptic world that's succumbed to a deadly mutagenic pandemic. Our story is heavily influenced by intense themes of grit, grime, thrill, and horror. All to be expected when you're fighting for your life. Endure or fall. You're out of options. Below is the verse lore developed thus far.(all images can be opened in a new tab for a larger view.) * OMIN: THE BARRIER CITYLittle is known about Omin prior to the outbreak. Rumor is that it was once a thriving city of possibility. It had it's problems, just like anywhere else, but.. It was home. At least until the Erema Virus hit the place like a bomb. Within the first few days hundreds upon thousands became infected. Suffering until they'd become what now hunts the streets. Promising a cycle of sickening death and rebirth. If you could even call it a life at all. For a blessing the walls managed to withstand those monstrosities. Giving survivors a place to flee and begin again. The environmental boundary keeping their shrinking bubble livable for the foreseeable future. Can't say they didn't make it count.   CITY DISTRICTSOmin is compromised of five distinct districts. * ENVIRONMENTAL BOUNDARY The massive outlining towers that provide all of Omin with a stabilized living area. Each one has no signs of entry and remain resilient to all means of exterior tampering. Making studying them very difficult. Those who leave their safety area die. Collapsing into convulsions and seemingly fighting for air before they go silent. Most assume the area beyond to be uninhabitable due to toxins in the planet's natural atmosphere. * WASTES A large valley range that encircles the city wall. Survivors took to this place when the city was lost to the infected. A bold few establishing safe spaces for other survivors, attempting to restore society. Many hike and hunt through the hills between settlements. A variety of wild game and fishing alongside good soil making living here sustainable. * SUBURBS The entry layer of the city within the walls. It's occupied by abandoned neighborhoods. Decaying homes, apartment buildings, small businesses, most were picked clean early on. Though, if you're lucky, there may be lingering spoils. Just watch your back, these places aren't always abandoned. * PLAZA Formerly the city's downtown urban area. Various crumbling businesses line the streets. Being people's go-to place to shop and enjoy a night out once upon a time. Reavers enjoy laying traps and ambushes here for unsuspecting survivors. * CENTRE The prodigious center of the city. Skyscrapers huddle one another, nearly blocking out the sky. High end abodes and important establishments reside here. Though few have been fully explored due to the rampant dangers. The virus began here. Leading to stronger variants now fighting for territory. It's suicidal to remain here long without extensive preparations and supplies, especially after dark. NEVER. GO. ALONE. * SUBTERRANEAN The ominous underground of the city. Sewers and railway tunnels have created a makeshift network. Snaking all across the underbelly of the city in various levels of decay and destruction. Within these darkened veins lurks powerful infected and fanatics. Countless horror stories circulate around these tunnels. Dissuading the fearful from delving into the shadows. Better that than risk shaking hands with the Hag herself.  OMIN MAP AND THREAT LEVELS   FACTIONS * ๐š‚๐™ด๐šƒ๐šƒ๐™ป๐™ด๐š๐š‚ People who have made the best of a bad situation. Working together to rebuild society outside the city walls through established communities.TERRITORIES* Walden: Located Southwest of the city barrier, it is the largest of the allied communities. Settlers have created a sizable residential shanty town. Their numbers keeping stray infected and reavers at bay.* Landow: Located Northwest of the city barrier, it is a smaller agricultural community. Supplying crops to allied settlements in exchange for other necessities and protection. * ๐š‚๐šƒ๐š๐™ธ๐™ณ๐™ด๐š๐š‚: People that make a living as roaming merchants for Kelna Outpost. Scavenging goods or using their unique skills in exchange for credits and favors.TERRITORIES* Kelna Outpost: Located along the West wall of the city barrier, it is the hub of commerce between the allied communities. A place to obtain items of varying rarities and advertise available work to the public for credits. It's also the only secured entrance into the city on this side of the wall. Those in good standing with the Kelna's become affiliated, earning the title of Strider. This gains them a personal lot in the outpost, to setup a home or shop, and the benefits of their support. * ๐š๐™ด๐™ฐ๐š…๐™ด๐š๐š‚: People who have turned to malice and greed to get ahead. They are shameless bandits that plunder and pillage to grow the infamy of their 'family'.TERRITORIES* Pirn's Rot: Located on the east wall of the city barrier, it is a cesspool of questionable individuals. The Reavers rule this territory. It's a vile town of sin that isn't for the faint of heart. Guts, goods, or compliance are the only way you might leave unscathed. * ๐™ต๐™ฐ๐™ฝ๐™ฐ๐šƒ๐™ธ๐™ฒ๐š‚: People who chose blind faith over survival. Worshipping the elusive Hag of Omin, the first of the Infected. It's rumored that if a follower finds her during their pilgrimage she will grant them her final gift, ascending to become one of her chosen.TERRITORIES* The Hollows: Located in the crumbling subterranean of the city, it is a sprawling labyrinth riddled with danger and mystery. Those with a shred of self preservation don't come down here without good reason. Fanatics roam about trying to further their faith. While powerful infected prowl the shadows patiently. Rumor has it that the Hag may even lurk somewhere down here. Though few have ever sighted her. Such claims are usually brushed off as lies or strained eyes playing tricks in the dark. * ๐š†๐™ฐ๐šˆ๐š†๐™ฐ๐š๐™ณ๐š‚: People who have chosen to remain unaffiliated. Traveling freely across Omin as independent nomads. They're treated with suspicion and scrutiny by others. A few bad eggs making them out to be the black sheep of society. They'd never know that most of them are just trying to get by, same as them. Most don't bother asking.TERRITORIES* None: They go wherever they please.   CLASSES * ๐ŸฅŠ ๐™ฑ๐š๐™ฐ๐š†๐™ป๐™ด๐š: The unyielding bulwark. They rely on strength and determination to get up close and personal with most threats. Acting as a defensive wall that fights back twice as hard. They are usually in heavy gear and stick to melee weapons.* ๐Ÿช– ๐™ถ๐š„๐™ฝ๐™ฝ๐™ด๐š: The dutiful soldier. They rely on quick thinking and potent firepower to shut down hostile situations.

They rely on a keen eye to assess their surroundings and pick off targets at a distance. Practiced marksmanship limiting unwanted surprises, mostly. They are usually in medium to light gear and use ranged weapons.* ๐Ÿ’Š ๐™ผ๐™ด๐™ณ๐™ธ๐™ฒ: The mindful caregiver. They rely on their medical knowledge to help others. Providing aid to the best of their ability and resources. They are usually in light gear and use close quarter weapons.* ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ ๐™ด๐™ฝ๐™ถ๐™ธ๐™ฝ๐™ด๐™ด๐š: The clever tinkerer. They rely on their experience to perform maintenance and make improvements. Their innovations can sometimes offer convenient solutions. They are usually in medium to light gear and use melee and medium range weapons.* ๐ŸŽ’ ๐š‚๐™ฒ๐™ฐ๐š…๐™ด๐™ฝ๐™ถ๐™ด๐š: The resourceful scrounger.

Such as farming, perimeter security, or simply raising their families. They are usually in minimal gear and use small simple weapons.   TERMINOLOGYMega thread of frequently used world terms.More will be established as discoveries are made. * ๐™ฒ๐š๐™ด๐™ณ๐š‚: Short for credits. They are rectangular metallic silver coins that can fit in the palm of the hand. They come printed in values of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100. It is the universal currency of Omin.* ๐™ฒ๐š๐™ด๐š†๐š‚: A catch-all term for grouped up survivors. Crews must have a minimum of three members to be recognized officially. These members tend to affiliate with the same factions or a mutual goal. Taking on jobs to assist fellow survivors, their factions, or themselves. Crews who make a name for themselves get more creds for their work.* ๐š๐™ฐ๐™ธ๐™ป: Refers to the railway network established in Omin. Allowing for unhindered, albeit risky, travel in the more destroyed or dangerous parts of the city.* ๐™ฟ๐™ฑ'๐š‚: Short for pherobombs. They are improvised smoke grenades created from the carefully extracted glands of infected. This is reduced into an ash-like substance that puts off a potent scent, drawing infected. Due to how difficult it is to source undamaged glands they are a pricey specialty item.* ๐šƒ๐™ท๐™ด ๐™ฒ๐™พ๐™ผ๐™ฟ๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚: An odd symbol found in the city. They are highly obscure, being discovered in bizarre but well hidden places. Most ignore them as graffiti while others are convinced it's a marker for hidden caches nearby. Inconsistent finds and dangerous goose chases have made theory testing difficult. * THE EREMA VIRUSThough authentic sources are dwindling it's said the virus began nearly 80 years ago. Most of those around in the initial outbreak have since passed on or have grown too old to recall the event coherently. Any who were children in those times only vaguely recall the mania that followed. Documentation is extremely scarce. If there are any available sources they are likely in places too dangerous to reach now. But nothing is impossible.There are a few consistent details between each retelling. A feminine figure, seemingly covered in sickly flowing grime, wandered into the centre. People were naturally terrified of the creature before them and called the police. Devastation followed. The creature lashed out, infecting anything that was exposed to the sludge.Before long screams filled the streets. People running for their lives from unthinkable monsters spawned in her wake. The figure would disappear into a crater formed in the chaos. Leaving the first wave of infected to spread the virus. Wreaking unspeakable havoc on Omin.The rest is history.   METHODS OF INFECTIONIndividuals can be infected in the following ways: * BITES: The most common cause. The rate of infection depends on the source of the bite. Bites by class C and B infected can take days to weeks. Being very dependent on the physical state of the victim. While bites from Class A's will take mere hours. In the event of a limb bite it's recommended to amputate for the highest chance of survival. Nothing is guaranteed.* ALPHA STINGERS: Due to the aggressiveness of the Alpha strand one sting causes rapid mutation. Turning the victim into whatever variant the virus deems suitable.* THE HAG'S TOUCH: It's rumored that coming into physical contact with the Hag of Omin causes instantaneous mutation. The sludge that her body produces being the most raw concentration of the virus.  STAGES OF INFECTIONOnce exposed to the virus the following will occur: * FEVER [ Onset - 1 day ]The virus will attack the immune system to prevent any delays in spreading. Debilitating the host with an intense fever that causes growing pain and delirium as time goes on.* NUTRIMENT AVERSION [ Onset - 2 days ]The host will become unable to eat or drink. Any attempts being violently rejected by the body. The taste buds fool the host to make them find all offerings repulsive and inedible.* MEDICINAL AVERSION [ Onset - 3 days ]The host will become unable to handle medications or sedatives. They will begin wildly convulsing if exposed to further treatments.* ORGAN FAILURE [ Onset - 4 days ]The host's body will begin to gradually succumb to the virus. Attacking the vitals until it can no longer continue functioning. At this point the host will die or integrate with the virus.* FULL GESTATION [ Onset - 4 to 5 days ]Should the host prove resilient they will integrate with the virus, becoming a Wretch. If they die in the final stages of infection they will inevitably become a Dragger. This can happen as fast as minutes postmortem. It's recommended that patients are humanely put down and cremated before this occurs to prevent further exposure risk.   NOTES ON THE INFECTED In the years following the initial outbreak some took it upon themselves to study the infected variants. Compiling knowledge from abandoned data and their fellow survivors. It's thanks to them that many have lived to fight another day.  THREAT ASSESSMENT Infected have been categorized in a letter-grading threat level system for ease of reference.* ๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฒ: Minor threat. Can easily be dispatched.* ๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฑ: Average threat. Killable but proceed with caution.* ๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฐ: Major threat. Difficult to kill, better off avoided.* ๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐š‡: Extreme threat. Near unkillable, retreat or die.  KNOWN INFECTED * ๐™ณ๐š๐™ฐ๐™ถ๐™ถ๐™ด๐š๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฒ] Created from the death of afflicted hosts. Roams mindlessly and lives only to eat. Unintelligent, lethargic, but persistent. Reacts to noise and sudden movements. Tend to gather in hordes. Easily killed by destroying the brain. * ๐š†๐š๐™ด๐šƒ๐™ฒ๐™ท๐™ด๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฑ] Created from living hosts. Physically superior to Draggers and much more reactive. Capable of running after their prey in a frenzy. Extremely volatile. Cripple the legs to better ensure survival. Like Draggers they're killed by destroying the brain. * ๐™ต๐™ด๐š๐™ฐ๐™ป๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฑ] Created from animal hosts. Similar to Wretches they are extremely reactive and vicious. Depending on the species of animal infected it exaggerates their primary qualities to hunt more efficiently. Can be killed by destroying the brain. * ๐™ฟ๐š๐™พ๐š†๐™ป๐™ด๐š๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฐ] Evolved infected. These creatures are effective ambush predators. Stalking their prey out of sight until they're ready to strike. Capable of impressive feats of agility. Can only be killed by destroying it's heart. Usually found on one of the upper rear legs. * ๐š‚๐™ท๐š๐™ธ๐™ด๐™บ๐™ด๐š๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฐ] Evolved Infected. Though scrawny these creatures rely on luring to survive. Powerful lungs and sound amplifying wings carry their deafening screech in a wide radius, alerting nearby infected. The volume of this cry will permanently damage or impair hearing if survivors are exposed to it at close range. Can only be killed by destroying the lungs. These are located at the back of it's gaping maw. * ๐™ผ๐™ฐ๐š‚๐™ท๐™ด๐š๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐™ฐ] Evolved Infected. This creature is a juggernaut among it's kind. Using the leftover remnants of corpses to regenerate it's mass. For all it's brawn it lacks higher intelligence. Just don't underestimate the raw power of it's berserker state. Can only be killed by destroying the three nerve bundles that form at random on it's body. * ๐™ฐ๐™ป๐™ฟ๐™ท๐™ฐ๐š‚ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐š‡] Prime infected. With high intelligence, strength, and mobility they dominate anything perceived as a threat. Due to being totally blind and deaf these creatures heavily rely on their hypersensitive sense of smell. Their behavioral patterns are boggling to the rare few witnesses. Claiming to see them consuming only other infected. If they catch a human they will instead use their back stingers to infect the victim. They are the apex predator of Omin's lower levels. There have been only three alphas sighted to date. Currently there is no known way to kill them. Only pherobombs can deter them momentarily to allow an attempt at escape. * ๐š‚๐™ฟ๐™ด๐™ฒ๐™ธ๐™ผ๐™ด๐™ฝ ๐š‰๐™ด๐š๐™พ [๐™ฒ๐™ป๐™ฐ๐š‚๐š‚ ๐š‡] The originator of the virus. Dubbed the Hag of Omin, most believe her to be nothing but a rumor. Something to dissuade the foolish from heading to the abandoned levels below. The credibility of former sightings is always met with suspicion. Yet in the darkest depths of the city something lurks. It's intentions still unknown. Some fanatics have formed a religion around her existence. Believing she is the path to higher enlightenment. They actively worship and make pilgrimages into the depths in hopes of being chosen for her 'blessing'. This information will be updated as stories unfold.LAST UPDATED: APRIL 14TH, 2024Update Details: Added first public draft of verse info.IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE WHY NOT JOIN IN?โชผ ๐šƒ๐™ท๐™ธ๐š‚ ๐š†๐™ฐ๐š‚ ๐™ท๐™พ๐™ผ๐™ด โชป
