Character Entry #1: Orcus
First and foremost Orcus is a Demon from the world commonly known as the Netherworld. This world is often thought of being known as what some call Hell but it is different from the fire and brimstone description most have read about. It is a desolate world that is nearly devoid of life. Only the strong survive and the only way these creatures survive is by feeding on mana and souls.
The demons gain their power and live through mana and they will take it in any form. Whether it be the mana that is formed naturally in nature or that of the mana from living creatures. So it should come as no surprise that the Netherworld is basically a dead world. The demons have long since sucked all the natural mana so they are only able to survive by feeding off each other or decreasing their rate of absorption. But by doing that it makes them weak and more susceptible to attack from stranger demons.
However there are nine major continents in the Netherworld and each is ruled by a Kahn. And each Kahn controls a high level technological device called a dimension gate. With these gates they can access other worlds to try and bring in mana to their dimension. Whether it be through siphoning the natural mana of the world or by stealing souls of the inhabitants of the world. But sometimes these invasions end in failure by having the opening shut from the other side. So most of the time the Kahn will send a team to go through. Depending on the world they enter they will try to fit into the society and blend in. Once successful they try to instigate wars or battles. If successful they merely sit and watch these battles unfold all the while siphoning the souls of the dead and sending them to the Netherworld.
Now Orcus is the son of one of these Kahns. The Kahn he calls father is the Tyrant of Fire Rakdos. The continent they inhabit is home to the pyromancers and beasts of flame. So naturally Orcus is very gifted when it comes to fire manipulation. Now unlike common fire users he doesn't need a spark or conventional fuel to start a flame. He merely needs to manifest his mana to create flame and from there he can form it with his will. He is also capable of using telekinesis but doesn't understand why. No other creature from his continent can use this ability except him so this puzzles him.
There is no love shared between Orcus and his father. The demons of the Netherworld are all for the most part very paranoid. So his father fears that some day Orcus will come for his throne despite Orcus making it clear he doesn't want it. But this news has spread that both Rukawa and Orcus have no desire for their father's throne. So the other Kahns have begun to plot on ways to use this to their advantage. But that is something that will be told once those events unfold.
Originally Orcus was the first to flee to a new world shortly followed by his cousin. Orcus encountered a noble group of warriors calling themselves the Ronin that he quickly joined. He rose through their ranks rather quickly and by doing so met many other people and creatures. Orcus later found himself visiting a den of sorts that had all sorts of creatures inhabiting it. He fell in love with a fox demon named Yuki and took in her son Doku as his own. But one of his close friends, Isaac, told him about a place that had many powerful warriors inhabiting it. This place is known as the Ninja Rave.
Abandoning his friends and family he quickly joined this place and grew close to these new individuals. Orcus was young in more than one way so he was eager to please and quick to shove away his past relationships for these people. It is here that he also came across his brother Rukawa. Together they fought many people and raided many places causing much mayhem and destruction. Serek joined in as well and they would often switch off where Orcus would be around for a few weeks then Serek. It is also here that Orcus met another woman that he deeply feel in love with. He never felt this level of love towards anyone before. But unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. Being young and stupid he was quick to sabotage the relationship with another woman. Not a day goes by that he doesn't regret what he did. Eventually Orcus and Serek went away and stopped showing themselves. As to where they went is a mystery.
Skip to now and Orcus has returned. He is now a mercenary and helps any of those that are willing to pay or trade for his services. It matters not to him what they desire for him to do whether it be a good or evil act. Orcus also has returned to complete a trial with his brother which will be a tale in itself once it reaches it's conclusion. Serek on the other hand appears to have met his end by the dragon known as sith from the Rave. But Serek has always been a master of deception so it is unknown whether he is in fact dead or alive.
~Below is what Orcus is currently up to. I'll update this as events unfold.~
Orcus has a long past so I wont go into that. All that needs to be known is the present. Recently Orcus has been going through some ordeals that his older brother Rukawa has been trying to help him through. Recently he almost had his body taken over by some changling of sorts that was sealed in a scroll that was in his cousin Serek's possession. Serek had no idea this scroll was a trap that was clearly intended for Orcus. So now he is on the hunt to find out who set this trap and why.
Orcus has recently been recruited into a guild of fighters. The place is called the Garage. From what Orcus can understand these people are looking to bring anyone in and to train them to better themselves as fighters. They welcome all strong or weak and strive to better the community as a whole. Orcus admires their noble cause and after a spar with their leader Saka he joined them. He now loiters around the Zackrodisiac but travels to other taverns seeking to recruit more members.
After a particularly crazy night of drinking and sex with a.. well it was a he/she of sorts Orcus doesn't really know himself what it was he had sex with. But that's besides the point. While he slept a telepathic link was made between himself and a woman named Sylin. She opened the link to all her children not realizing Orcus was her son. Orcus got to witness her kill the Earth Kahn Kirion. Before he died Kirion revealed to Sylin that one of her children is the betrayer of Rakdos Orcus. Horror and despair hit her as she realizes what this means for Orcus. With Kirion dead and the powers going to her and her children new powers will awaken for Orcus but also a massive threat. Orcus is the first to be a child of two Kahns. If he somehow kills both his father and his mother he'd gain all their powers and become a massive threat to his entire species. The other Kahns will eventually learn of this and seek to find the world he fled to in or to destroy him. Orcus would never kill his mother but regardless the other Kahns will not take this chance.
Appearance: Orcus stands at 6'7 and weighs close to 190 pounds. He has broad shoulders and lean arms and legs. Long red hair cascades down to his mid back that he usually keeps in a tight pony tail.
