This is a Pokémon-only RP, rated T (blood, moderate romance & language)
Once upon a time, there were two Tribes of Pokemon fighting for dominance over the Fenju Temple. Both of those Tribes worshipped a stone, the "darkstar" which believed to hold unspeakable power that only those chosen by it had access to it. After many years of wars, the two Tribes decided that it was best they merged into one, singular Kingdom, as to protect their sacred secret in unision. The Kingdom came to be known as Anemos Kingdom. All Pokémon of the region lived peacefully for almost 200 years, united under a single banner as they were, until the Dark Cult, an evil and sadistic organization of the northern Kingdom, launched a ferocious attack. They battled their way through the Kingdom, wanting to steal the darkstar from the Fenju Temple. The Kingdom then formed the Argent Dawn, a group of elite soldiers that were dedicated to protecting the Empire from the Dark Cult. However, a large part of them were crushed in the defense of a city, from where the Dark Cult launched a direct attack on the Citadel of Anemos, where the monasteries and the Fenju Temple were. As a final resort while the Dark Cult was storming the Citadel, the Emperor unleashed the wrath of the darkstar, causing a massive earthquake that ravaged the Cult's monstrous army. The third year of this war ended with them retreating to the cities of Anemos they had already conquered, only to start regrouping again to launch another assault on the Citadel. How long before they prevailed against the remaining members of the Argent Dawn? Will Anemos kneel to the Dark Cult, or will they fight back?
Map of Anemos
1 - the Citadel of Anemos The Kingdom of Anemos was established in this very location by the two Tribes. The Temple of Fenju is inside the Citadel, precisely into a mountainous spire that grows in its middle; on the mountain ranges around the Citadel, there are monasteries with monks who worship the secret of the Temple. While Pokemon from Anemos are welcome in the Citadel, strangers are not, as the locals are very secretive and protective of the Kingdom. Ever since its creation, the Citadel has become a large set of houses (primarily made of stone), which are surrounded by great thirty feet high walls. In the far back of the Citadel, on the foot of the abrupt mountains that emerge like spires, there is the Palace where King Lucius II resides.
2 - Arta The fairly big town was partly destroyed by the massive earthquake caused from the use of the darkstar; in defense of this town, a large part of the Argent Dawn were consumed by a void portal the Dark Cult had opened - but Arta remained safe and under Anemian control. A memorial statue was raised in the outskirts of the town to honor those who died protecting the town.
3 - Terra Once a town brimming with life and activity, Terra was a major trade point of Anemos. It was surrounded by beautiful plains and the quiet forest - until the Dark Cult came and burnt part of the forest down and took control of the town, stealing all of its merchandise and forcing the residents into slavery.
4 - Loruma A town hidden in the thick expanse of Loruma forest, it took its name from the area it was built in. It managed to evade detection by the Dark Cult and thus has cut its connections with the Citadel, remaining in the shadows of Loruma forest. The Dark Cult has set out on many expeditions to discover the elusive town, but its residents have made sure none of them returned.
5 - Ossa The first town to fall under the Cult's control, as it is located on the northern border of the Kingdom; once a quiet, peaceful village, it has transformed into the Dark Cult's main operations center in Anemos. Multiple camps full of the soldiers of the Dark Cult lay around the town, which also bears the palace where the Cult's high command rests. No original resident of Ossa is alive; all died with their town, when it was brutally attacked three years ago. Due to the immense amount of dark powers gathered in the area, the flora has died down and a constant fog engulfs the area.
6 - Sithonia A large city built inside the Creelic Canyon, it was once a powerful ally of the Citadel, known for its big amount of dragon Pokemon residents. Though, it has mysteriously vanished from its original place when the Cult invaded Anemos - just like that. Everybody who visited the land where Sithonia was once built would only find rocks and cliffs, an empty wasteland on the bottom of the Canyon.
X's - Dark Cult's bases
1 - Cartel Base The first Base to be built, two years ago, it is characterized by the black lighthouse/wind turbine that is built inside it, which generates the whole base.
2 - Suni Base Most recent Base of the Dark Cult, it contains many warehouses full of goods and supplies.
Ravaged Lands Once beautiful plains, they have now turned into a torn, rugged land by the earthquake.
Bergina & Elusion Plains Before the earthquake, the two of those plains and the Ravaged Lands were one single, grand plain.
Danube Wastelands After the Cult's coming to Anemos, these lands became desolate; the flora withered, and dust coming from the north replaced the vivid, fertile soil. These wastelands are now covered by a constant fog, or sandstorm that is whipped up by strong winds.
Creelic Canyon A deep, dark canyon with countless of caves; many dragon skeletons have been found, as well as fossils - the area is said to be an enormous dragon graveyard. Hundreds of pointy spires emerge from the ground, making flight extremely dangerous.
You can either be an Argent Dawn soldier, or a Dark Cult follower.
- The Argent Dawn
The Argent Dawn is a force of skilled, highly trained Pokemon with a single purpose: to protect the Anemos Kingdom in its entirety. It was created three years before the conflict of the present day and has since then established a powerful stronghold within the Citadel. The group that was formed initially consisted of 2000 Pokemon, but on the destruction of Arta, nearly 3/4 of the Argent Dawn were vanquished, along with their leader Fiaje Imaho who is also represented in their insignia (a Braviary).
They are affiliated and influenced by the King, whom they consider part of the Kingdom that has to be protected; in other words, a special part of the Argent Dawn is dedicated to serve the King as bodyguards. Having formed during times of war, the organization is mainly consisted of Pokemon with a strong sense of patriotism and love for the King and their nation, accompanied with passion to regain and maintain the Kingdom's freedom fully.
Their main tasks in the RP is raid the Dark Cult's bases and re-take the towns that have fallen under their rule.
Insignia the insignia of the Argent Dawn is the Braviary, the old leader of the force.
- The Dark Cult
The Dark Cult is a community that follow a cryptic religion, with more than one million members in its ranks. It is among the oldest institutions in the world and has played a prominent role in the history of the world as we know it so far. The Cult's hierarchy is led by the Prophet Ali Kemal and the Cardinals, as well as the Templar Council. The Dark Cult empowers and enforces its dominance on the Empire it rules through the Dark Prophecy, claiming that their followers are in authority of the world. It teaches that the world's destruction is at hand and that if they do not control it, they will be unable to summon the Gods of Black and White into the world to stop what is coming, that its Prophet and Cardinals are directly related to the Archaic Precursors and thus are legendary beings. It also teaches that war is sacred in the occasion of the Cult wanting to expand the range of their beliefs or their amount of followers, leading into the phenomenon of the fanatism that has not appeared in the recent Pokemon world.
The Cult's dogma maintains that it is infallible when the Prophet and the Cardinals are in agreement on one position as definitely to be held in matters of faith or morals. The worship of the Gods of Black and White is highly liturgical, focusing on establishing a connection between the Gods and the wielder of faith that looks onto building a better future. The Cult teaches that sacrifices (be it the blood of their enemies or a wild Pokemon presented as gift) must be made, in order for their vision to be achieved.
The Dark Cult holds their Prophet, who is said to have lived over 700 years, amongst the Gods of Black and White in regard; seen not only as a public figure or community leader, but as a God, he has gathered absolute power over the Cult and the Empire he rules.
The primary role of the Dark Cult in the RP is to battle the Argent Dawn to maintain their dominance over Anemos and push them back to the Citadel.
Symbol the Symbol of the Cult is a heart being crossed by two cutlasses.
Pokemon Species: (no legendaries)
Side: (Argent Dawn or Dark Cult?)
Move set: (6 max)
My SUs -
Name: Hector Legendario
Pokemon Species: Lucario
Side: Argent Dawn
Appearance: Hector has a red sash tied around his waist, which has the insignia of the Argent Dawn on it. He also wears shiny silver shoulderpads that fit perfectly onto his body. A necklace with a brimming ruby crystal is hanging down his neck.
Personality: Hector is a charismatic and kindhearted Pokemon, honorable to the Argent Dawn's cause; he holds deep respect for his creed, as well as his comrades. He is very proud of his heritage and his position in the army. He is a powerful warrior with a strong sense of morality and heroism; he appears to be thoughtful and intense, although some times quite judgemental. His inbuilt sense of right and wrong often leads him into reckless and naive decisions regarding battle. Hector is a relatively quiet person, but he is great company when he is cheerful. He is fully devoted and loyal to his friends.
Background: Hector was born to an aristocratic family of the Citadel, his father (a Blaziken) being one of the most skilled battlemasters of the Kingdom. Having trained under his watch, Hector gained the skills and knowledge he needed to become an appropriate warrior; not long before the Dark Cult invaded the northernmost village of Anemos, Hector joined the Argent Dawn to aid in the defense of the Empire. When his father died in the Cult's assault on the Citadel, he sworn eternal vengeance upon it; that is why he is so focused to his task.
Name: Vincent Blados, the 'Firestarter'
Pokemon Species: Typhlosion
Side: Dark Cult
Appearance: Vincent is alot taller and bulkier than a normal Typhlosion, as he is rumored to have been blessed with the power of the void. He has a massive brown, menacing scar across his face; his glowing eyes are amber colored. Two spiked vambraces each bearing the symbol of the Dark Cult, a black heart being crossed by two cutlasses, engulf his hands.
Personality: Vincent is a wicked, evil Pokemon with twisted ideals and beliefs; he shows absolutly no mercy, while it is his pleasure to turn the battlefields into blazing furnaces of death. As the Supreme Commander of the Dark Cult, he is famed for his extremely powerful fiery attacks that grant his targets a quick death. He appears to be so devoted to the Cult that he is often said to be insane; his appearance gives that feeling as well, as his presence is enough to terrify even his own troops.
Vincent believes in zero-tolerance discipline, which means anyone who fails him will face a harsh punishment, and those who oppose him can only hope for a quick, quaint death. Over the years of the war, he has developed a natural hatred for the Pokemon of Anemos. In battle, his fury is relentless, however careless - his fire attacks have killed hundreds of his own men in the battlefield.
Background: Little is known about Vincent's early years; he joined the Dark Cult as a mercenary, but quickly became devoted to the cause, and after the span of 10 years, he was appointed Supreme Commander of its forces.
This seems interesting. I may have to keep rereading the plot and map but this sounds cool. I really hope this RP goes far. :D Anyways, I'll join - one in each faction. =) I'm adding ability and other to my sheets by the way~
Name: Kora Vermios.
Pokemon Species: Shiny Rattata.
Side: Argent Dawn.
Appearance: Special in fur tone, this Rattata has a unique appearance. Instead of resembling the typical Rattata, Kora instead resembles a Pichu. Her tail is dyed black with tufts of fur sticking here and there to resemble the ridges in a Pichu's tail. Around her neck is the distinctive black, three-traingle collar that compliments a Pichu's spunky attitude - and to finish it off, under her whiskers are two pink circles. Everything about her screams Pichu from a distance until you look at her ears. Being circled instead of pointy is what really gives her off as a Rattata. To cover these blemishes she dyed the tips of her ears black and places two roses on each ear, to distract others from staring at her 'misshapen' ears. Finally, her eyes finish her look by glimmering a bright forest-green color instead of the normal red or shiny blue color.
Personality: Kora is sneaky, friendly, humble, and overly protective. As her species is known for stealth, Kora is no exception. She prefers the shadows when on the battlefield - enjoying the surprise of attack instead of all-out combat. When she's not battling for her kingdom, she's a very friendly gal'. She tries to get on the good sides of others, never wanting to show disrespect. Battle-wise, she's very humble in her skills. She believes she isn't a strong member (although her skills are very valuable) on the front line and tries to sneak in the back. She tends to underestimate herself due to her small stature and by what others say - due to her usually frail species. However, when she can get past her humble ego she can be quite the fearsome opponent head-on. With her varying skills she can protect her allies quite easily. She's a tricky character this one, but, a well-trusted gal' for sure.
Background: Kora has been in and out of torment about her appearance for ages. Ever since she was a newborn almost everyone would mistake her for someone of the Mouse race - more specifically, the Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu race. Always teased about her frail body, Kora grew with a low self-esteem thus, taking on the appearance of a Pichu in hopes of raising her spirits. No one ever seemed to see the potential that was within Kora, except her parents - Leona the Ratticate and Hyrule the Arcanine. Her parents taught her that no matter what others say, Kora will always rise above their accusations. Although Kora half-heartedly took those words to heart, she continued her stressful life.
It wasn't until two years prior that Kora saw an opening in The Argent Dawn. The organization was striving for members for the incoming attacks on the Kingdom by the Dark Cult's advances. Knowing this would be a chance to prove everyone wrong about Rattata's she joined their forces by attempting to prove her movepool could make her an aide, a general, or something high in the ranks of The Argent Dawn. Being denied a position due to her femininity and lack of stature, she was tossed aside while the war waged on. This was when Kora realized no one would ever accept her as she was and in the incoming year she watched as the war continued its madness. The war never seemed so personal until the Dark Cult invited themselves into her safe haven.
Kora was out training and melding her skills into something useful when news of a recent attack expedited itself throughout her burrow. Of course, believing that the Dark Cult wouldn't dare enter the Kingdom crossed her mind. She believed she was safe - that The Argent Dawn would protect her and everyone else. Only minutes later did an inferno blaze the burrows of the Mouse race. Scorching bodies, the smell of burning fur, and lots of blood cast a portrait in Kora's memory bank. She watched as her parents fought valiantly to protect her, each other, and the members of the burrows. Sadly, it was to no avail as Kora watched each member of her family fall to the likes of the Dark Cult.
Everything that happened was because The Argent Dawn could not defend their borders. If only they accepted everyone who applied - maybe then would they have stood a chance against the evil that was the Dark Cult. Kora vowed revenge against those who killed in cold blood. However, darkness filled this part of her memory - blacking out after the deaths of those she held near overcame Kora. When she awoke she found her home in rubble. Everyone she ever knew, everyone who had ever tormented her for being different, and everyone she ever loved - all gone. A rescue crew from the Citadel found Kora soon after the war ceased and the dust settled. It was too late for most of the survivors they rescued however. After the darkstar was activated the deaths only piled up because the wounds were too gruesome to heal.
Since that fateful day where Kora's life was turned upsidedown she as since joined the desperate ranks of The Argent Dawn as a viable member of the no longer exclusive branch.
Appearance:Click here for Mihn-Jun. Alluring, beautiful, mysterious - those are only yet a few adjectvies Pokemon say in Mihn-Jun's presence. Like a breath of fresh air, there's nothing stale about her appearance. Fragrant like a plumeria, she radiates warmth and love (or so others assume). Her fragile appearance gives a lackluster shine to her power. Usually underestimated by her silky fur and bright, red eyes her fellow Pokemon do not realize there's more to her than meets the eye.
Personality: Minh-Jun is easily described as cunning, sassy, flirty, deceptive, and powerful. Looks aren't everything and Mihn-Jun is the description of such a myth. Being the cunning creature she is, Mihn-Jun is known for her sly-ways. Sticky-fingers are what some call her - that name isn't just for show either. A Pokemon has to earn her keep in this world, doesn't she? Now, that's where her sassy mannerisms come into play and if that isn't enough she has a few tricks up her fur-pockets. Not one to fall victim to anyone, Mihn-Jun knows her way around the men of this world and this fox uses her charm to get her way and point across.
