You knew something was different about you. You always seemed strange in some fashion, always seeing things in a different way from people around you, never fitting in, and always strange in some manner.
It was only when you transformed for the first time did you really understand. You weren't a human. You were a monster. Literally a monster.
And then you heard the whispers of your other side.
Unfortunately, they were interrupted with gunshots.
Welcome one, welcome all, to my first roleplay in a while. This is set in modern day, where you play as a human with a monster side, hunted by society.
You see, 20 years ago, a portal opened to this world from the monster world. These monsters were like strange predators - devouring and killing millions, but then falling in love with a human. And - you guessed it - you transform into this monster in seemingly random scenarios, hearing the thoughts of the parent you never saw, and never wanted to know about. These monsters were killed the same year they came here, but not before each of them could have one child. And now, the government wants to finish what they started.
A few warnings - this RP, while PG-13, will be quite dark as your character deals with their insane side they can only barely control, hearing the dark whispers of their evil parent, just grasping onto morality. Secondly, this RP will probably get pretty gory - while some monsters such as vampires and dragons may be pretty tame, turning into a werewolf, a mutant leech, or some other beast that rips through flesh hungrily will definetly be horribly to hear and describe.
1. PG-13 only please. You can fade to black for "romantic" scenes, or just avoid those scenarios in the first place.
2. Violence is encouraged, as is insanity or battling with yourself.
3. Please no tennis posting or posts under 4 sentences. Especially with such a psychological RP, you should be able to write more then this simply on you saying hi.
4. Other normal RP rules.
5. To prove you've read this, write in your other section what sound is described as being heard after the whispers.
6. To prove you can read, ignore rule number 5.
7. I can change the rules at any time, and am free to deny any app for any reason.
8. To prove that you have too much free time, you will only be accepted if you put your name backwards in your other section, along with at least one word describing yourself.
9. Have fun! Isn't that the whole point of RPing?
App: You may apply for just human, but if you have an inner monster you must write both a human and inner monster app.
Age (Pprroobbaabblly 20, given the lore.)
Inner Monster App
EDIT: Bonus points to whoever knows how to change the title.
Imagine it like a werewolf transforming. Although you might have a slight control over it, it normally just happens under stress or extreme emotions.
Nearly any monster, from some demon to merely a mutant gerbil. As long as it is something that would be described as a monster and would be able to kill dozens of humans on its own, you are good. The only other rule is it had to be vaguely humanoid, or physically able in some way to reproduce with a human.
Just to warn you though, the more powerful your monster, typically the more powerful your voice and the more likely you are to be tracked down.
Okay, since it seems like more questions pop up the more I think about this, what's the expected amount of transformation? Should we look completely inhuman? Barely change at all? Is this a common sense based world, in which case we'll be fighting the military the very 30 minutes we start an incident?

Half full? Half empty? Something else altogether? You decide.
The transformation should definitely be noticeable. Even turning into something like a vampire, it should be some sort of mutation and extreme. It's expected that your other form is just...monstrous. Scary and terrifying, and something that should definitely be run from. Imagine like skyrim - even the "subtle" changes should be very extreme and obvious. Also, this form isn't REALLY you. It's more of your heritage manifesting, and therefore you have little to no control of your actions without some extreme willpower, and even as a human you hear the dark thoughts of that side.
Imagine like inner demons manifesting. These monsters are horrible nightmares come to life from a different universe that would cause riots at the very sight of them.
And yes, this is meant to be a very dark RP that is extremely realistic. You will be attacked, and you will be feared.
Here is some examples of things you should transform into:
A giant werewolf, savage in all ways, only thinking of food.
A drider, easily double your own size, an arachnophobe's nightmare.
A demon with huge wings and an evil face, malice expressed with every inch of the body.
This side of you is just evil and savage - it's not half you, half monster, it's a straight up monster. It's only care is killing, and it's whispers haunt your every second.
Name: Asphe Schneid (Yeah, her mother gave her that name. Her last name is from her being adopted. Reverse the common monster roles.)
Personality: Eh, I say to be RP'd. One thing though, she doesn't care for those she doesn't like. Those she doesn't know is more of a meh.
Appearance: (Attached.) Oddly enough, She still has the looks of maybe a 9th grader. Might be her genes.
Skills: Gaming, Being a walking encyclopedia at times. They're kinda just normal. Not too many out of the ordinary skills to help them besides loophole thinking.
Background: In terms of how Asphe came to be… Istina's race, the Phenriks were not what you'd call the top of the social hierarchy. They were lowly blacksmiths, being used only for war and occasionally something normal. Obviously with such a boring life, Istina jumped at the chance to be free of the monotonous tasks. She didn't particularly like who she got with besides their looks and the man also happened to be her treat when she was done. She was hungry after all that rampaging through the streets and into the mountains.
She had given birth to Asphe but 3 months later when she was spotted carrying the newborn. Istina had even gone the extra mile and had made a basket for her, with her name etched into the side. Of course, it wasn't long before the military had managed to take her down as there was too many for one monster to hold off against on her own. The child was adopted by one of the soldiers later on, Nora. While some said it was a bad idea due to her abnormal hair and eyes, she still took her in. Nora, now 39, is supplying Asphe with the extra funding she needs to complete college. ( I got a bit lazy I'll admit.)
Other: Ikuy. Creative. (I kid you not. I swear this causes confusion with my peers online…) Asphe is also a Sci-Fi LARPer. Yes she wears those hairclips. Normal clothes consist of black shorts and a graphic tank-top.
Inner Monster App
Name: Istina (Mother. Poor guy that got used.)
Personality: Just a teeeeeeeny bit obsessive. Could be classified as overprotective. She's not actually as irritating as one might think, Asphes only finds her irritating when she won't stop asking whether she needs "Help". More of someone capable of having a conversation with if you don't mind them claiming that they know the best thing for you. Asphe(Currently as in the beginning.) thinks she's just talking to a muse in her head. A muse that wants to "Help" her get rid of stress.
Appearance: (Attached as well. And yes, that's the scaling of height.)
Skills/Powers: Here's basically the tank class. Istina is a creature that's focus is around metal, heat, pressure and flames. The Phenrik (Name of said creatures.) thrive on metals and minerals almost entirely. Lava is essentially a smoothie to them. The main reason they eat people is because people contain minerals and metals as well, making them an ideal snack. As for a meal, a car would suffice. The Phenrik are capable of controlling the pressure in their body as well as increasing the temperature of it. Obviously this heat can radiate outwards to about 60 feet, increasing at it's max to about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This isn't the internal max obviously, the internal max is enough to make them a walking blacksmith.
Their skin is hard to a human and will resist anything below .44 in caliber. Unless you're using a railgun of course, then projectile size really isn't an issue. If you do get into their skin, expect it to get used against you. The muscle under the skin seems to act as a net, catching anything that gets lodged and melting it quickly, benefiting the Phenrik. Their blood is molten metal and they can easily replace limbs if they have enough metal in reserve. They can grow to about 50 feet tall if they eat enough metal, the excess turning into natural armor. The armor on their heads can't be broken by anything less than 30mm weaponry. Same goes for the extra armor, so I don't suggest letting them get close to metal. Explosives are pretty much useless as they used to live deep down underground, where the pressure would most likely crush vehicles. The fire won't do squat, and fragments might get stuck if not moving fast enough. That doesn't mean that you can't over-penetrate though, which will mean they can't use the fragments or metal.
As for offensive abilities, the Phenrik can breathe a gas that normally is used as a source of the fire they use to heat up the metal in them. They can light this fire as it exits their mouth, essentially becoming a non-napalm based flamethrower. They can also forge blades in themselves, making them a walking armory so long as you have a way to cool the blades they create. This is by adjusting pressure and internal heat. Besides being strong and such, they also have a built in thermal vision. This was used to find each other when it was blizzard season and they so happened to be outside. (Rare occasion, but happened.) The regeneration of the Phenrik can be stopped via a specific weakness. (Hint Hint, You'll need a ton of it.)
Other: (I don't need to put it again do I?)
Asphe (Yeah she wears those clips.)
Her typical LARP gear.

Human App: Name: Violet Lothric Age: 27 Gender: Female. Personality: She has quite the amount of trust issues, and a has no care for anything 'living' on this world. She's lost her way and will only side with those who she sees fit. She often hides behind her camera 'to keep her from seeing the world with her own bare eyes.' Appearance: (Below) She often doesn't look sad, she just looks horridly pissed atleast 85% of the time. It was how she was raised. She often wears that checkered armed hoodie for most of her time. Skills: She has an art in hand to hand combat, being trained boxing and mma, mainly boxing over the years has given her strength to combat alone. Photography, her photography is remarkable and flawless but she refuses to share it with the world. I suppose that's it other than basic human nature. Background: She was raised alone practically, her Father left her at her own house and venue somewhere on some hilly suburbs when she was still quite young. Her father, being the rich, uncaring, unlov- person he was, just injected her some money every three weeks or so. That's what she thought he was though and she hated to walk around with her last name ever since.
She was thirteen when she first turned into the Akeno, unsure of what was going on through her entire session, she could feel the pain in her back as the wings sprouted, and more pain she bursted out her own roof. She woke up, wet and starving by some canal downtown. On her way home, she was already hearing people talking about some flying demon that killed 34 people during that night. After that incident, she took her combat classes, to atleast try to stop the demon within her.
Other: Oh my god, I really am an ignorant little girl. Real name: Aira Character name: Cirhtol Teloiv
Inner Monster App: Name: Akeno (Being of the moon) ((Don't actually translate it, it probably means something else.)) Personality: Akeno is one hell of a cold blooded killer, killing for sport and feeding off the souls of the dead, quite gruesome. The thing about Akeno, if Violet keeps trying to break free from this form, the Akeno gets stronger and stronger feeding off Violet's struggles. Appearance: Since I could not find a picture, have a horrible description of it instead. The akeno has two forms. First form:
This only happens within the first 3-5 hours of transforming. It is only the size of a human and grows over time, it has charcoal black fur, bones that can be see through its skin,and its head hasn't fully formed yet, so you can see its skull for that time being, the skull just looks like a longer wolf head with deformities here and there. It sprouts two wings, each wing as large as it self and is very, very frail, but is still able to fly.It walks on all fours, each leg is just a beastly leg, gangly, hairy, and long. It's eyes glow white and it's tail is like a long metalic rat tail that can cause sparks when clashing with solids Second form:
It's size is increase four fold, so its about as large as a hummer on top of another hummer. The head has fully formed, giving her glowing yellow eyes, fur has grown around at the head and so has it's teeth and gums, and tongue and all that gooey stuff inside a body. It's fur now is a conductor of electricity, having shocks of it bounce all over it's fur. It sprouts four more wings, so six wings in total to carry its full size. It's skin is made to deflect blades and bullets, but not fire. It sprouts a second tail, and both now are a source of lightning. Skills/Powers:
The Akeno feeds off souls to get to its second form, it needs to kill and ravage at least 9 humans to reach its second transformation phase. Once in second form, the Akeno is basically a walking 2000 watt generator, that has two cattleprods on its hind.
Their skin in first form is quite fragile and be killed with one explosion. Though their wings are the only thing immune to fire. Which makes them rely on their wings for majority of their first form. Her skin on the second form is basically kevlar vest increased 10 fold, though it is still week to fire, once exposed to fire for so long, it's ribcage pushes out and so does the heart, which causes quite a weekness. But her wings in second form is basically 6 shields that are practically immune to anything.
The Akeno's screech can burst ear drums when a human is within a 25ft radius, it hurts a lot, it's mouth opens, in all directions, and is usually a place to throw in anything fire.
Wings, it's wings are the cause of it's mobility and tankiness, its wings can be taken down by throwing an explosive in its mouth. When combined, it's wings can slice through an entire building, if not, a fully grown oak can't survive one.
Fur and tail, its tail is pretty much a cattle prod, it can shoot out lightning bolts, but is something that causes it to weaken. so the tail is going to kill anyone if it touches the lightning bit. It's fur will absorb any lightning to create some sort of shield around it, and kill those who touches it.
And of course, after a needed amount of souls has reached its point, it will start killing for sport.
Other: I only realized that I made an end game boss fight as my monster here.
Personality: To be roleplayed, however she's not good with trusting people.
Appearance: Cascades of thick, brown hair reaching to about the bottom of her bra(lol that was the only way i could think to describe it), shes 5'4 and Puerto Rican, and she mostly wears black clothing.
Skills: A self-taught artist (but she never thinks of it as a career. she makes sketches as a hobby); is smart in mostly every school subject except math, however isn't a "genius", and she learned a few (only like three) karate moves from her friend.
Background: Inez has no parents to take care of her; her mom was murdered when she was very young by one of the government monster hunters, and her dad abused Inez when she was very young, but stopped because of some sort of strange incident that he never told her about. Spontaneously, her dad made her move to a secluded new town where not many people lived, and one morning Inez woke up to discover that he was gone. At this age, Inez was twelve and lived by herself in that house from this day on.

Drake's Time Vault
Name: Eizikiel Zaukaryse (Zacharias) Lawrynse (Birth), Zeke Zacharias Lawrence
Personality: Zeke is a quiet scornful person. He tends to not joke around and stays away from socializing with anyone. If you somehow break through to his emotions, he will be protective of you. He also looks pretty young for his age and gets offended when people call him young or say he looks like he is thirteen.
Skills: Zeke isn't the smartest in school, but he is smart when it comes to the streets. He knows how people work. He knows how to fend for himself. He knows a small amount of karate, but prefers full on street fighting. He is an amazing cook, can school anyone in old arcade games like Mario and PacMan and Dig Dug, is a gambler, knows many card games, and knows how to run from a crime scene while jumping fences and dodging cars. He can also play guitar, bass, and saxophone.
Background: Born to a monster disguised as a man and a more upper class woman, Eizikiel Zaukaryse Lawrynse was born a little less than one year after the monsters entered into this world. He was raised for a short time by his father and mother, before his father was killed by the government and his mother was killed by a truck driving by the orphanage where Zeke Zacharias Lawrence was left. At the orphanage, he was not treated well and he was barely taught anything there. Even at the local public school, he was never taught much. Budgets low and such. Due to the harsh environment of the orphanage and school, he went looking for help on the streets.
Around the age of ten, he met his father figure. An old Jamaican man by the name of Terence Jobi, or TJ for short. TJ saved him from some kids at school who were trying to mug him. Imagine a modern day and Jamaican Mr Miyagi. That was TJ. TJ basically raised Zeke from that day forward. He was taught little karate, because TJ didn't know much himself. He was taught saxophone, how to cook, how to get high scores on Dig Dug, and the proper way to jump a fence. TJ helped Zeke through tough times, and became the father that Zeke never had. He helped Zeke get through school and away from the cops whenever he got in trouble. Zeke stole sometimes and fights very very dirty. Like to the point of breaking limbs and using knives.
Zeke eventually graduated and decided to move out and see what else was out there. He moved to a town north of where he lived and got a well paying job. He called TJ once a week to check up on him. This went on for two years, and the calls happened less due to conflicts. So, after about a month of not talking, Zeke decided to visit TJ. When he arrived at TJ's house, he heard a gunshot. He ran in the house and saw TJ's head all over the wall and a man running out the window. Zeke ran out in tears looking for someone to help. During this, he passed out in the middle of the road. Then, "he" came loose.
Other: If it's my actual name then Nosam, if it's my character's name, then Esnyrwal Esyrakuaz Leikizie. I'm pretty confident.
Inner Monster App
Personality: Tyraxius is a creation of anger and bloodthirst. He is a feral less sentient beast. He does not talk with full sentences usually and grunts a lot.
Appearance: About fifteen feet tall
Powers and Strengths
Feral Mind: His mind has gone into a primal anger, increasing his strength to the point of being able to lift semi trucks and toss them a distance, his speed to the point of being able to chase down a gazelle and devour it in one swift movement, and his mind has descended to the point of short words and angry grunts and screams.
Supernaturally Dense Tissue: Tyraxius's outer layer of all tissue, including bones and organs, is hardened to the point of being stronger than steel, taking bullets and surviving explosions with taking minimum harm.
Regenerative Healing Factor: It takes a major amount of time to regrow limbs and organs, but small injuries take moments to heal.
Superior Darwinism: While Tyraxius lacks intelligence, he makes up for in genetic instinct. His body can superiorly mutate when confronted with a situation. If put into an ice ray or temperatures beyond freezing, he can overheat his body to the point of charring the ground he walks on and thicken his skin. If confronted with a barrage of bullets, he can thicken his skin beyond its normal capacity and grow small metallic plating on his skin preventing bullet damage. If confronted with falling into lava, he can harden his skin and chill his body, making it stony and resistant to the lava. If he needs to swim, he can grow gills and dive in. Just imagine the hero Darwin from Marvel. That is the most similar thing to Tyraxius's power.
Feral Mind: Due to his mind, he does not think. He is only a brute, making him horrible at getting out of traps that require disabling. This also makes his mind weak to mind control or mental pain effects.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Severe injuries do take some time, making him vulnerable if he loses a limb.
Superior Darwinism: Much like how natural evolution comes with weaknesses, so does Tyraxius. If in one state of physical change, he is weak to what that is weak to. If he is prepared for cold temperatures and overheats, adding heat can severely overheat him to the point of passing out.
Size: His size makes him a large target and gives him trouble in buildings.
Overheat: If Tyraxius is put through too much stress of mind or body, then he will overheat himself and pass out in most cases, if not just become weakened and fall down.
Xevra, very close. You messed up on other section.
Key, you also messed up on other section.
Entei, accepted. Because of your monster, however, I would suggest being particularly careful.
Pokemad, as Xevra and Key, you messed up on your other section.
I forgot to add that he can overheat his brain and body if put through too much confusion or anger, if he lifts too much weight, if he is required to heal too much or if he needs to do to much Darwinism-ing, or anything similar where his body will shut down.
