Gamertag: KSI WHISKEY82

Division: DM

Character name: Beetus

Character abilities/gadgets/what makes them menacing: Long lingering scares. Can only be fought off with needles.

Their story: Beetus is real and he claims the lives of roughly 1.6 million people a year. He thrives during all Holidays with Halloween being his favorite haunt. People welcome him into their homes and his ominous threat is real, despite they never even notice he has been there until they are much older. The weapon he uses is sweet by design, not at all painful despite the crippling effects and horror he can inflict. He takes the feet and sometimes legs of his victims as souvenirs before taking their lives. He marches on invisible and undetectable leaving a wake of death in his path. He prays on those with little willpower to defend themselves before finally consuming them as if they were an overly sweet treat. The only known way to ward him off is eating healthy and exercising daily. He has no interest in those with strong able bodies. Beetus does have a face however, and a more common name we all may recognize. Diabetes.

Gamertag: KSI Skarzx 77

Division: N/A

Character name: Skarzx

Character abilities/gadgets/what makes them menacing: Razor sharp claws, stealth and in "ghost form" the ability to still attack people.

Their story: Skarzx is the modern day boogieman with a "freddie Kruger" like presence except in real life not in dreams. The legend goes that Skarzx (pronounced "Scars") is a serial killer that was active in philadelphia in the 1800s. He would snatch up people and leave claw marks behind in the shape of a "S" as a calling card. The people taken would never be found again.  After Every house in the town was attacked, the Townspeople gathered together and hunted Skarzx until they came across a small hut in the middle of the forest outside of town. They set the hut on fire and from the flames you hear a harsh screech cursing the townspeople and vowing to return. 

For a few years Everything was quiet, until a new couple moved into town and moved into a new house that was buily. When halloween came around the family celebrated with their neighbors retiring to their home for bedtime as the night grew late. But that was the last time that family was ever seen again. When the town investigated the house a few days later, they found the house torn apart with claw marks everywhere and no sign of the family that was celebrating with neighbors just a few days ago.

 

From there the legend became that on halloween, you must carve a "S" on every side of the house or Skarzx will return and get you. The S is suppose to symbolize the house has already been "attacked" and Skarzx spirit will ignore the house.

Gamertag: KSI RezMeIn5

Division: Demonic Mayhem

Character name: Voiceferatu

Abilities: Much like a vampire, he has the ability to steal the life energy of somebody else and use this to keep himself immortal, though with a much classier way to achieve this than sucking their blood. He uses his voice almost as a compulsion to gain this energy from others when they interact with him and give him permission to take that energy without them knowing.

Story: Strange phone calls happen all the time, hangups or nobody being there when it's answered maybe. But this is about one of the strangest for Jason Doe, and it's all true. One late Halloween night Jason was home alone, when his phone rang. It was a restricted number, usually he didn't answer those but he felt a strange urgency to the way the phone rang and so he did. "Hello, can i help you?" The voice on the other end was soft and polite, with an old world charm that spoke of education and culture. "Yes, can I have a few minutes of your time young man?" Thinking it was a telemarketer, but unable to hang up without being rude, Jason replied yes. "Thank you." The well mannered man on the other end said, and abruptly hung up without anything more. As Jason put his phone down he couldn't quite put a finger on why the call was so strange besides the abrupt end to it. He did feel just a little older though, one step closer to his life running out, as if he had indeed given the stranger a few minutes of his time left to live.

Division: Sovereign Legacy

Character name: unknown?

Character abilities: enhanced strength, agility, healing. And telekinesis.

The story: One day a regular guy was walking around at a annual rock concert at a local soccer stadium. He was there having an amazing time until he started to feel sick. He found a bench and sat there to try and calm down, hoping that it would help him feel better. After chilling on the bench for what felt like days he wakes up. But he feels different, he goes to try and wake up by splashing water over her face. While trying to splash his face with cold water, he broke the faucet, he was in utter disbelief. So he moved to the next one and it happened again. He doesn't understand what's going on. So he goes to meet up with his friends around the festival to make sure he wasn't tripping on something they gave him. He starts talking to them and they just think he is out of it. So he brushes it off and goes back to focusing on the music and having a good time. Just before the final band starts to play, a group of terrorists that had been dressed as event staff, police, and security guards, start shooting in the air to get everyone's attention, during their announcement they tell everybody they have the whole place rigged with explosives, they tell everyone to get on the knees, hands behind their backs. As they start to zip tie everyone's hands they explain that the concerts lanyard around their necks had been programed and armed to explode if they left the stadium, or moved faster than walking speed . Of course you had your usual skepticals, who proved that they weren't lying, they shot and killed Slash for their inconvenience. As this was unfolding my unlucky hero found himself relaxing in the bathroom smoking a cigarette. With his headphones on blasting heavy metal. When he didn't respond to the terrorists telling him to get out they started shooting the whole bathroom. My hero was riddled with bullets, terrorists checked him, no pulse. He was dead to the world.... Or so they thought. An hour later the real police arrived with a hostage negotiator, SWAT, helicopters, the world was watching this unfold. This is the biggest attack on American soil since 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. My hero wakes up, seeing the bullet holes in his shirt, bullets, and blood all around him he is freaking out. Last thing he remembers is being riddled with bullets bleeding out on the floor. He's wondering what happened. As he cries out in anguish he notices the lights flickering, bullets, and glass floating around him he screams and everything floating, started shooting everywhere in an explosive force. He gets up and notices his  enhanced speed, he uses it to find him an outfit. He notices a couple terrorists walking around as he sneaks up on one, another pops out behind him, he turns around and punches the guy so hard his hand goes straight through his chest, killing him instantly. before the other one even notices his head is ripped off by the unlikely hero. He throws  the decapitated head into the stadium freaking out all of the terrorists they start to panic. To be continued....

Division: DM

Chatacter Name: Shutter

Character abilities/gadgets/what makes them menacing: It thrives on souls and lives on film and in photos, sliding out into our world, befriending and colluding with the unsuspecting and easily preyed upon to meet its ends - devouring souls to keep itself alive. It takes on the image of it's victims. Digital photography is threatening this particular demon's existence, so it needs to get creative and can no longer afford to slowly drain life force from victims.

A Victim's Story:

As the shutter clicked, the final piece of her soul slipped into place and was captured forever on film.

Years later, long after the all of the treatments stopped working and the funeral was over, the old camera was found.

"Can you even get that developed anymore?"

A quick Google search brought up some options. A disk with digital copies were sent back, along with a large print of that final photo, the one with her contageous laughter and mischievous glare captured in it. There was a note attached: "I couldn't help myself. This photo is perfect, I had to print it for you." They were right about the photo; it captured her essence perfectly.

I hadn't thought about her in ages, the pain had dulled and mostly happy memories remained. The photo went up on the mantle, in amongst photos of other friends and loved ones. She always did stand out in a crowd.

She slipped into my dreams that night. Her laughter echoed in my ears. She lingered there regularly. Not nightly, but often enough; reliving vivid memories. They were always so difficult to wake from.

Jenny was practically living with me now. Not surprisingly, the bickering increased. I can't remember what we were fighting about, something stupid like how to load the dishwasher, or the correct way to hang the toilet paper roll. It doesn't matter.

"You know what?! If I am so ridiculous why don't you just go back to her?! Your precious Maggie," pointing at the photo on my mantle, "she's right, you belong together"

"I'm sorry, what? That's impossible"

She looked embarassed, glancing at the photo almost apologetically, "Nothing, nevermind."

With that the topic was dropped. I felt ice cold.

Next time I walked in the room I looked to that photo and had to double take. It was blank. Well no, the scenery was in place. A ghostly fog was where she should have been. Then I heard hushed tones. Her laugh tinkling down the hall. I crept closer to the study. I could see her pacing with excitement. Her feet didn't really touch the ground. She was almost there, but not quite fully realised. My heart pounded in my throat. Then I heard Jenny's nervous chatter, "Are you sure I should be using this, it's not mine. It looks awfully old. I think it was passed down to him from his mother."

"Don't worry. Just do it like we practised. He won't mind I need his picture. I have none, please help me."

Confused, I pushed the door open.

The flash was the last thing I saw.

Division: SL

Character name: Ignant

Character abilities/gadgets/what makes them menacing: Ignant is an empath who can brainwash her victims.

Their story: 

Often overlooked, Ignant was left alone, but one day the popular girls decided to spread rumors about her. They said that her grandfather's death was not an accident and accused her of murder. People believed every word without hearing her side of the story.  Her life was ruined. She could not understand why anyone would want to hurt others the way they had hurt her. She moved schools to get away from the accusations and the rejection, but she could not let it go. 
 

She began to study gossip and lies. She wanted to know how long she could lead people in a lie without them questioning her. She noticed that she could feel her peers' insecurity and their need to be wanted. It all started with one lie that soon led to many. Eventually, all of the students came to her for answers. They needed her, and she wanted to manipulate them to her will. She knew as long as no one asked questions or cared about their education that they would do whatever she said. Nothing could stop her now. She had grown too powerful. Her prey grew none the wiser. As the children say Ignorance is bliss.
