Officially, the year is 2642, but most refer to it as Year 7, since that is how long it has been since the bomb dropped. It has been 7 years since the events of WWOOH. In that time, a permanent base had been established in what was once the Black Hills region of South Dakota. The airship, now known as Phoenix 1, is the primary source of resources for the people of the Phoenix colony. The ship, and by extension Phoenix itself, had become a sort of symbol of hope amongst the wastelands. Outside the city walls, the world is still mostly empty, aside from the occasional handful of people living in shacks. The land is still somewhat barren, however grass has been beginning to regrow in most places, which had lead to free roaming animals to reappear. What is less fortunate is that there are roaming gangs throughout the wastelands, gangs who since pretty much day one have viewed the wastelands as a consequence free playground for them to do things they couldn't of dreamed of doing before. Some of these gangs are very hostile. The Phoenicians have built a large wall around the city to protect themselves from these gangs, and so far it has been working without a hitch.
The world is a very different place now, and you are caught in the middle of it all.

Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant):
Don't be op.
Name: Jason Segal
Appearance: 6'4", brown hair, white with a mild farmer's tan, fairly lean.
Personality: A very take charge kind of person with good leadership skills. He often tries to take command of any group he joins. Confident in his abilities to the point where he is occasionally cocky.
Bio: Born on July 8, 2584, Jake joined the Pacifica Air Force 2 years before the war began. Jake tends to be optimistic about things even in very bleak situations. Aside from being a rather good pilot, he was also proficient at hand to hand combat. He and the rest of bravo team was in a search and rescue operation when an explosion sent him into a tailspin. Luckily, he survived. After he had landed, he had played a pivotal part in shaping the colony of Phoenix, from laying down building foundations to setting up a government system. Jason is currently the main pilot of Phoenix 1.
Name: Robert Mooris
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant): Synth...though, he was born this way...
Appearance: He is a Snivy, (check avatar for reference) however, he is blue where he's supposed ot be green and has dragonlike, or batlike (He prefers the term "dragonlike" though) wings, his wingspan is exactly 4', which is twice his height. The leaf on the end of his tail is the same blue as he is, and is split into three leaves, all of which are spiky. The leaf hands he has also have exacltly five spikes on the end of them...they kind of act as claws...
Personality: Robert is always the "good guy" Always doing only what he knows is right, however, he is also usually quiet...he doesn't like to talk to people he doesn't know. He does, however, help out people he doesn't know, that is, unless he feels something is "Off" or "Wrong" about either the person, or the job at hand...at this point, he won't aid them, no matter what the reward. He is, in fact...nonreligious. His form betrays this, however...
Bio: Robert was actually born into this form, as his parents, their parents before them, and their grandparents before them were zelously religoius Pokefans, his parents (or grandparents, or relative, add whatever to this, depending on how old synth technology is at this point) were the first to test out synth technology. Robert was always picked on as a kid, for more than obvious reasons, but unlike the average nerd, he actually stood up for himself, and often fought off the bullies. Teachers, and, on one occasion, an officer of the law, often failed to see what the bully did to him, and only saw his reaction, he was considered violent...despite this being far from the truth. He was supposed to "evolve" or change shape, according to his mom and dad, a long time ago. Both of his parents are trying to figure out why Robert hasn't evolved yet, and have been secretly researching it for the better part of 7 years. Robert's parents continually try to make him an official member of their religion, this annoys him to no end...they've even gone so far as to drag him into their church once, but...it did them no good, as Robert didn't listen to the Church Leader, despite being only one of ten actual pokemon in the church. Robert was eventually fed up with it all, and finally left his parents...only to see a news report the next day about his home town getting bombed! At first, he was more than a little depressed, he wandered the streets of what used to be the second largest city in his state, remembering the good things that happened...and the bad. he would visit his old home from time to time, and sit at where the couch used to be. He did get over this depression, though, and found that he was lucky, he was the one who lived. He figured that he should be happy that he wasn't there while his city was being bombed, and now thinks of each day of life as a gift...after all, it could have ended on that one fateful day...he currently roams around what he learned in history class to once be called the "United States of America". He has since aided Jason numerous times in the building of Phoenix, and has taken down an odd creature called a "Deus" Robert has created an interesting, and wonderful pill using the DNA and research from that creature, after killing it, of course, Robert playing a huge part in the thing's death. Robert has since met back up with his parents, and fainted at the sight of them, as he thought they were dead the moment his hometown, the since destroyed phoenix, and once called Oner before the original bombing. Robert has since also become the head of scientific research, and has made a good effort to both revive the technology of old, and create new technologies... he has created the first perpetual motion power source...though, it only lasted for a month before it blew up...luckily, however, nobody was harmed in this explosion, and Robert has seen it as more of a challenge than a sign to give up... for better or worse.
Gender: Well, he hasn't had surgery to change it, so still male.
Appearnce: his hair has turned full black, and fuzz now covers his face. Cory most notably had lost alot of weight over the years, from either the occasional food shortage or the occasional food scavenge near the base.
Personaility: Cory still is morally good, but growing up in the apocolypse had shaped his perspective of humanity heavily. he dosen't really like people much anymore, other than a select few people in the colony. he is honest about things, and is suprisingly brave.
Bio:7 years ago, Cory woke up in a pile of wreckage, injuried badly. he had scavenged his computer and work, which suprisingly still functioned correctly, and was found by the survivors of Pheonix. the rest is history. by the time he was settled into the new area, he relized that after people were past the initial trama of suriving, they would go mad without something to do other than scavenging. Thanks to his work on recreating ancient games, Cory knew quite well how to make his own. he took it apon himself to make entertainment for the survivors, something else to do when there was no work to be done. He started making his own video games. He would lock himself in his house for hours at a time, designing them. then after he made his game, he needed something to run it on, as computers weren't exactly all that common, for some reason, now. so he found some spare parts, mostly junk, and managed to jurry rig togethor something to play the games on, taking him a few months more to perfect his design. he put his game inside, started up his machine, and to his suprise, it actually worked. Over the years, Cory's skill at both coding at jury-rigging tech improved, and came along on scavenging runs whenever a possible issue with some AI was involved, aswell as jury rigging improvments to his own computer to make things easier to hack, to run better, and the like. he pumped out a steady stream of games for people to occupy their time with when not at work, aswell as the systems to run them on incase one broke. Cory still wasn't all that much of a physical person, even though he lost weight, he still didn't move to fast, or lift to much.
Name: Alexander Oni
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth): Human
Appearance:5' 6" Long black hair. Asian. Skinny. Green eyes
Personality: Nicer now that we have established a base.
Bio: Alex was a very smart boy growing up. I mean very smart. He skipped grades and graduated from college at 18. He became a game programmer. Creating virtual reality games. He became very successful. A millionaire at age 20! He never got robot body parts or became a synth. That stuff disgusted him. Why would people do that to themselves? He was against that stuff. And Fandoms becoming religions? He was a fan of Star Trek, but turning it into a religion just took it to far. He was quiet about these things of course. Didn't want to lose his business. Not that it matters. The apocalypse was going to happen anyways. He took shelter in his own personal Fallout shelter. When he got out everything was gone. Just a crater with a small bunker. He walked to a nearby town. Hoping to find someone and to find food. He was running out. That's when Jason and Robert found his bunker. He joined them. They created a town with other survivors called 'Phoenix' and did some boring crap. Nothing important. They beat up some weird pony guy. They flew to a new place after Phoenix was bombed and started a new town. Alex helped build. He always helped with projects but he never got any credit for it. When he found out Robert was the head of scientific research he was a little hurt. He didn't even know that they're that organized. But he wasn't the one to hold grudges. He helped Robert. He warned Robert about the perpetual motion power source, but Robert disagreed. When it worked Robert laughed and said 'I told you so.' It lasted a month, then it exploded. Luckily no one was seriously hurt, but it was close. Alex convinced Robert to have him play a larger role in the energy project. Good thing too. Running on batteries and gas generators wasn't going to last (And whatever else we used for power). Alex is currently the 'captain of the guard'. He handles the security of our new base. He makes sure the wall is secure and none of the gangs get through. He sometimes leads missions to 'get rid of' nearby raider camps.
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant):Synth
Gender: Should I do Female? Nah, Male.
he is 3.3 ft. tall
Personality:can be rude, sneaky.
Bio:Prometheus had been born in Colorado,and went to the new preschool- elementary school 'Tendoy' and had usually gotten in trouble for things like breaking crayons, throwing books at kids,and playing 'doctor' with plastic butter knives, thankfully being caught each time before someone was missing a kidney. When he was in elementary he had been better, his grades were usually Bs or Cs, rarely an A. because of this infraction people called him an Idiot, numbskull, and pea-brain, where then he would say to them back "Yes, you are one," then would usually get beaten up for making a somewhat clever comeback for a kid his age. He was usually beaten in 2nd-3rd grade, not because of grades or comeback, but just for no reason, where he had snapped, and had actually broke a kids arm. He had to explain to his parents why he did it, and got in trouble even though it was a good explanation, where then he decided that when he is old enough he will become a Machamp synth, and completely forgot about his suspension the next day, and got suspended for a week. in 4th grade he had been usually been sexually harassed, like being called gay, or sometimes just punched in the face for again, no reason. He had liked piano, and had actually learned to play some songs, most from a game called Touhou, which was Japenese, therefor people thinking he WAS Japanese, and the kids at school being half racist had decided to call him Karate man, which he didn't enjoy. He had met up with some of those kids after school, and had asked them to stop, instead of hurting them. They would not, and eventually he had been depressed. He was in a rich family, or at least was a close friend of one of their sons, and had sometimes asked them 'Should I become a synth?' and they said 'Well, it's up to you. We have millions of dollars, but you'll have to become great friends of all of us, and then you MIGHT get some money to change into one.' and then Prometheus would say 'I kind of want to be a machamp synth, that might make some kids stop bullying me' and he would then have snacks, and talk with them, trying to be as polite as he can. He then decided that he shouldn't have THAT much power, and become an Umbreon instead. (Umbreons are actually very good Pokemon.) Once he was close enough with the family, they got about $25000, $1000 each week not to make the him go and be one right before 5th grade. Once they gave it to him they said 'You have to save it though, as they will only synth older teenagers, and adults.' and he did. after a few years of anger, sadness, and bruises he was finally old enough to become a synth, and went into the nearest doctor's apartment. He went in and payed them the money, which got up to $25000 from saving it, and finding money that people had dropped. Once he went in the synth the doctor pressed some buttons and asked "Okay kid, what do you want?" and he said "Umbreon, please" and when he became one he said "So this is what it's like to be a Pokemon." and went outside to embrace his new form. When he went to school no one believed that it was him, and his parents didn't recognize him. When the bomb dropped he felt like him and his parents were the only ones alive. He still wanders through the wasteland,he headed to Idaho, North Dakota,Texas, and finally South Dakota, searching for any signs of survival, and had found a base near Black Hills, that looked like it had lots of people in it.
Personality: A more calm but very deceiving. He is pretty hollow but hides it by saying dumb things.
Bio: He was born in Germany but recent riots and mass killings got them to pove to Pacifica. When he was ten or so. The nukes went off. He survived by going into a underground bank vault, because at the time the bank was getting robbed. A man named Sylas Jason arose and enslaved him. Sylas was a gang leader and survived the bombs. Alexander was forced into the gang but finally after a year he finally earned a rank as a close bodyguard or Elite. Soon enough some Phoenician who they captured told him what currently is going on. In return for his freedom and Alexanders cooperation he would provide safe haven. All he had to do was really assassinate Sylas which in the end he did. But he was still stuck in the faction but the soldier escaped and reported back but that was the moment the walls came up. His plan is to infiltrate the city and finally live a safe life again. But his dreams were crushed once Sylas's brother took over his name was Gabe Jason his plan was to tear down the walls. Which brought the idea he cant escape without being killed later on but Gabe was an idiot and let Alex get higher up in ranks. And now his poll is over about a fourth of Gabes gang. Soon enough he managed to escape guiding along eight people to break through the wall. And he finally managed to get in but doesn't know what to do now.
Name: Tiger Fuather
Appearance: A Lucario that is 2 feet tall, has Dragon Wings and a tail with a spiked leaf, and finally some sparks, covered by SOMETHING, is coming out of certain spots on his shoulders...
Personality: He became a video game nerd since Cory made a console... He is also a bit more cautious because, well, how else would he be knocked out right nearby old Phoenix... He also is shy to people that are bigger than him, the bigger, the more shy he gets...
Bio: All of the memories Robert reminded of... It was just one day after the bombing... He met Robert and Jason, and, his fave robot, which he calls that robot a "cybrog", Orange... He mutated over time, which, he was fully mutated by the time that he was in the train... He played a minor, yet vital role in the Dues battle, he actually made a big distraction, big enough for a opening to appear... to kill Dues... However, he had to touch Robert, as he didn't want to touch a brony with the copy cells, same with the Dues creature... He also learned how to glide, but hit a wall... He also can't sleep now... He also saw Orange go insane, he stopped Orange from doing any destruction... However, this puts him in tears... He is now a engineer always trying to make electricity work... He is now re-inventing Solar Energy, and energy backup...
Name: "Neo", real name Kiba - however, his real name is kept secret.
(Minus the tie and the shirt underneath is done up more. Also, this pic isn't mine. Just something I found which fitted my idea of him) Neo is about 5' 8'' tall.
Personality: Neo is very sceptical of people, whether they be human, cyborg, robot, synth or mutant. Because of this, he generally keeps to himself, only chipping in to conversations if they concern him; also, despite his age, can take care of himself, hating to be treated like a child due to his age. Normally, he can be found in a forest or place with plants and/or animals, where he feels most at peace. Oddly, Neo has the ability to get closer to animals than other people, tame them and understand them to an extent. He allows animal companions to come and go as they please, due to him treating them like other people; which animals seem to respond to. Also, he's relatively smart, which aids in 'taming' animals, and can improvise things should the need arise. This is down to the fact that his mind works like a simulator, enabling him to go through most things very thoroughly, though he does still make mistakes. Additionally, he can be very unpredictable when anyone speaks of family around him. Normally, he is fine with it, though if anyone asks him about his family he can go from calm and reserved to in-your-face with a knife to your throat, or doing something else particularly nasty or violent. Lastly, even though he is generally alone and if you can get through his tough outer shell to get him to trust you, he is a very kind and caring person on the inside. Neo has learnt over the years when to fight and when not to, though he does prefer to find a peaceful solution but he will fight - and fight extremely well. He isn't the best in fighting close range, though has skill with a bow and arrows; experience he gained when making bows with his father and practising with them on a target range when he was 8 onwards. He can use a bow with deadly accuracy, hitting targets more often than not. He has some experience with firearms during the 7 post-bomb years but still prefers the ornate, beautifully carved longbow ((http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longbow)) and variety of arrows, some useful against armoured people and others useful for hunting - and everything in-between.
Bio: Neo lived in a small village though went to a large school in the larger town a few miles away, living a simpler life with a small amount of technology at home; preferring to be out in the forest just behind his home. At his school, music was one of his major interests so he is more than capable of playing a wide variety of instruments, including violin, his favourite instrument. Neo was also bullied at school most of the time, making him even more detached socially than he already was. Living this life for his entire life, when the anti-matter missile detonated the nuclear stockpiles of the world, his entire village and family was killed, devastating him. He only survived because he had been in a cave hidden away in the forest, along with what he had with him. Everything else he owned was destroyed, including his precious pictures of his father, who had died 5 years before the anti-matter missile incident. From there on, he kept his name secret, silently fearful of others who would abuse him and bully him.Neo's pet, and greatest friend, Sparrow died two years before, when Neo was 20. He still misses his old friend dearly. Also, Neo is a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (making him a 'brony') but he doesn't take it as far as a religion - he likes it for the reasons bronies in and around 2012, when a brony religion didn't exist. He thinks of himself as an 'old style' brony. However, the only person who knows that he is a brony is Jason - whom also knows his real name of Kiba (Jason calls him that when no one else is around) - and no one else.
Name: Robert "Griffin" Blunt
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant): Human
NOT mine!! This belongs to Infinity Ward!!! Robert is 2.38 Metres (7.80 Feet) Tall and weighs 82 Kilograms (94.79 Pounds). He has a scar reaching across his left eye and a tattoo of a skull on the back of his right hand. His most distinguishing feature, however, is the fact that his left arm is synthetic.
Personality: Ignorant, Destructive and Dangerous
Bio: As a child, Robert lived with his Uncle until he was 19, when he requested to join the criminal company SCORPIA. When he joined, he was put into training for 8 months and was on his first operation on the 12th of september 2634. Sadly, his left arm was crushed when a car fell on top of it after a bridge being destroyed (By Robert, Ironically). He was evacuated and received medical attention as soon as possible, and SCORPIA built him a synthetic arm so he could continue working for them. On the 2nd of August 2635, Robert was sent to the DataDine compound to destroy it, and he rigged the generators to explode. After he escaped the compound, he detonated the generators, and killed over 100 people in the blast. He did not get a chance to complete his 3rd operation (because of the bombs dropping, of course). These days, he lives in a small hut on the side of a mountain.
Appearance: Roger is 6"8', a hulking giant, he has cybernetic enhancements located everywhere but his face. He has sharp, sky-blue eyes and sandy coloured hair. He wears a light jumpsuit over his body, his cybernetic augments providing a natural armour. His robotic parts are shielded with titanium alloy, coating him with a silver sheen akin to that of plate armour. His right hand is a cybernetic human hand, whereas his left is a menacing plethora of attachments, ranging from a drill to a claw, he calls it his 'Swiss army knife'.
Personality: He always pushes himself to his limit, regardless of his personal safety. He attempts to be polite but is exceedingly quick to anger, he has numerous beserk-buttons, possibly the most potent of which being mentioning his sister. Hates staying in one place for two long.
Bio: Roger never had a true home, his family was always on the move, city to city, state to state. When the time had come, he moved away from his parents with his older sister Rebecca, or 'Becks' as he'd call her. Not knowing any other real lifestyle, they two were always on the move, never staying in the same place. When the bombs fell, they continued their previous lifestyle, scavenging whatever they could find on their way. This continued for three years, until Roger was 32. One day, they were ambushed by raiders, blood-thirsty psychopaths. Attempting to fight back, Roger was easily downed and restrained. His sister however, put up much more of a fight. Taking down four of the attackers by herself, she too was captured. His sadistic captors forced him to watch as they cut out his sisters heart. Mortified, Roger began blaming himself for not being strong enough to save his sister. This lead to a power quest, after murdering his captors during the night, he sought out any and all individuals who could perform cybernetic surgery. Implant after implant, augment upon augment, and yet, he still felt like he needed to be stronger. Eventually, his quest for power diminished, coming to grips with the fact that if he kept this mad power-lust going, he'd loose his humanity. Not wanting to become a heartless machine, he began wandering again. Attempting to regain sight of who he was. Four years had passed since his sister was murdered, and he had eventually found his way to Phoenix colony, following rumours from caravans and slaves he had rescued, hoping for a new beginning...
Name: Amne Soar
Age: Unknown. Thought to be somewhere between 14-18
Race: Mutant (Bat-human hybrid)
Appearance:She has long, a tiny bit messy but straight, silver-ish black hair. She tends to wear brown rags that she found looking around. She also wears a water colored hat she found lying around. She has big, black bat wings that spread from her sides to the bottom middle of her hands. She can retract them which turns them into tiny wings on her sides that are usually covered by her rags. She has a tiny bat tail and huge bat ears that she can make bend backwards, go down, and fade into her hair. She has clawed feet that are covered in black fur from her feet to her whole lower legs. She has slightly longer and more pointed canine teeth. She wears a pair of glasses that are cracked in the right lense. She's skinny, mostly because of her not having the greatest access to food and her flying abilities, and she's 5'3''.
Personality: She's very nervous and timid. She also gets scared easily. She has an extreme amount curiousity though. She's very apologetic and thankful. She hates loud noises and tries to get away from it when she hears it.
Bio: Not much is known about Amne's past. She does get visions of a strange place that almost seems like a house and of a bat that seems to be called Mister for some reason. She also gets other strange visions as well. Besides, that she has no memory of her past. However, her talking pet crow Asmodeus seems to know a bit. To put it simply, Asmodeus, or sometimes nicknamed Asmo, is a science experiment gone wrong. An attempt at making animals talk human language. He's basically a talkative, sometimes arrogant, and sometimes harsh crow with a huge white stripe going from his head to his tail. He can be mean to Amne, but he does care for her like a sister/daughter. He's much smarter than he looks .The 2 encountered each other at the same time when Amne had no memory of anything.Amne looked a tiny bit younger compared to as she is now, except without the rags. She found herself in the middle of what seemed like plains. She kept wandering around, scared out of her mind. Then suddenly, a crow came out of nowhere and crashed into her. The crow got angry and started yelling at her before beginning to fly off. She begged the crow to help her and albeit he thought for awhile, he shrugged and let her join. He told her his name was Asmodeus, or Asmo for short. Amne tried to say her name but couldn't remember it, so Asmo decided to call her Amne because of her amnesia(he's also not very creative). The 2 began to travel around finding things they would need to survive with. That's how the 2 met and how they became like family. Now's they're wandering around, still not finding many people.
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant): Robot
Gender: Male (Or neither since its a robot. )
Personality: Beta is a kind robot with a great sense of humor. Instead of laughing or sharing emotions, he simply says in his robotic voice: "Hahahah." or "I am sad." The circuitry inside of him forces him to be kind with humans on sight, but only if not seriously threatened or damaged by them.
Bio: Professor Zirk once had an idea of creating an artificial intelligence, but only got so far as making a solid machine instead of a transparent machine that can disappear and reappear wherever it likes, because he died a week after he was planning the progress. Zirk made Beta as a servant to mankind, so that when he died, Beta could take his place and make more. Although, the bomb drop damaged Beta's circuits, so he only remembers that he must serve humans. Beta was only a few months old before Zirk died. The Professor's creation was forgotten and not preserved for two years... Until the bomb drop. Then, he was charging up power for seven years. Eventually, Beta woke up. He found his way out of the rubble and onto the surface.
Name: Alex Black (Not related to my previous character, Strauss Black.)
Personality: Paranoid, short tempered, quiet.
Bio: Alex was a test subject in 2369, far before the war began. This was closer to the beginning of Synths and Mutants, and as a result it took several years before his human form had completely turned into the being he is now. The people who were testing him decided to go even farther into altering DNA, including the brain. As a result, they had turned him into a Pyrokinetic (one who controls fire). At this point, since he never particularly enjoyed being a lab rat, Alex tried to escape, using his new-found powers. Realizing they had gone too far with their work, the scientists shot him, erased his memories and put him in stasis until they could figure out what to do with him. Eventually, they completely forgot about Alex, leaving him in stasis for centuries. Eventually, he woke up in 2642, with nothing but a gun wound and a dangerous-looking flare gun... leaving him to attempt to figure out what had happened during those hundreds of years, and learn his past.
Starting Equipment: Modified flare gun (used as a weapon).
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant): Human
Appearance: Looks kind of like raith, but blonde, and doesn't have a scar on his forehead.
Personality:Serious, yet has a little sense of humor. Kind.
Bio: Darrek was born in, what used to be, Idaho, and had a lot of friends,even when he was only 4 years old. The only fears he had was Arachnaphobia, and he would be frozen in fear when he saw a spider. Once 'bullies' at his preschool had found this out, they had always find spiders, and dangle them over Darrek. He never really had any problems with his fear, or bullies until about 3rd grade. When he was in 3rd grade, 5th graders would call him a 'dumb blonde' or 'Idiot biscuit' due to his favorite food being a biscuit. He tried to ask them to stop, and they would never stop, as you could imagine. He tried running away, and that always failed since the bullies had heelies. He had stopped joking, and told teachers of the situation, and was always serious about it. This continued for 5 years, except he would get beaten up each time he told a teacher. One day, when he was in middle school, a bully had punched him so hard that it had sent him into Coma. He still remembers everything that happened before he had gotten sent into coma, the only problem is was that he had been in coma for a long time. When he had awoken, he didn't remember the students, because they were new, and realized that he had been in coma for 2 years. He continued on with life, up until 17, when the bombs had dropped. He, like Raith, was Devastated at how his whole life was ruined. He decides he would explore the wasteland, and on his way, he had seen a man with a slave. The slave was female, had red, long hair, was white, she looked 12 years old ((so she is about the same age as Daniel is)) and Darrek had bought the slave, for a hefty price. Once he was far enough away, Darrek had freed the slave, and the slave had stayed with darrek. For some reason, she didn't take the shackles with the broken chains off. Darrek thought he would need some way of defence, so he got a weapon from a gun shop, and had continued roaming the wasteland. For 7 years they had traveled, and are in Gulfia, as they have wandered through every 'state', except Gulfia and, at the time, had never found Phoenix in highland. He found a flare gun, and it had a few flares, and he knew that there were others out there, in the wastes. He has tried shooting it many times, and is down to his last flare.
Name: Tiger Nix (Nix for short)
Appearance: (She's about 4 ft high from her paw to her shoulder, and about 12 ft long from nose to tip of tail)
Personality: Outgoing and Curious
Bio: While she was human, Tiger Nix always wanted to see what it was like to be an animal, and when she was offered the choice to be a cyborg tiger at 21, she took up the choice right away. The whole procedure was over in about an hour. When she woke, she was excited to test her new form, and got used to it within a few minutes. The scientists kept her on daily exercises while she got used to it, and after about 5 days, she was free to go. She roamed around the wasteland after the bomb dropped, met up with a group, but eventually, she got separated from the group, and the weather had advanced wear and tear on Nix's mechanical parts, eventually, Nix fell into a deep and long hibernation.
Starting equipment: Basically Claws and Teeth, Poison Fangs and she uses the spikes on her tail as a weapon. (Due to long advances, she upgraded a little bit to include new weapons.).
Name: Dorothy (His mum wanted a girl)
Race (Human, cyborg, robot, synth, mutant): Human
Appearance:Long dark brown hair, Short, Glasses, Many scars across his face
Personality: Sensitive, Caring, Easily angered, Humorous (At least he thinks he is anyway), Dorothy has never really trusted people after everyone left him behind (See below), and has got into quite a lot of trouble recently because of this (See below 2)
Bio: Dorothy (He prefers Dorry) doesn't know where he was born. He is a natural with computing, as he found out in his last town, which was invaded by terrorists. After that he spent his time trying to cheer up the rest of the survivors, which occasionally worked. They all gradually went without him, until he was left alone. This is the key to Dorry's sensitivity. Afterwards Dorry was what he liked to call 'A wanderer', someone who never stays long, and always leaves alone. He has been to many a town, and met many people, some nice, most horrible, tormenting, and all 'round mean. He recently left a small village, in which he had many friends, but also many enemies. It had been the first place he had ever had friends, apart from in the survivors town, of course. Eventually the bullies got rid of him, and Dorry once again became a 'Wanderer'. This wasn't the first time. Dorry was fine with it. Now he's found Phoenix.
Jason sits behind the controls of the ML866. He must have flown Phoenix 1 over twice the amount of time he had flown all the other aircraft he had ever flown combined, and that's no small feat for a former Air Force pilot. He reaches for the mouthpiece of his radio. "Tower, this is Phoenix 1, approaching for touchdown."
"Jason, you literally have been the only functioning aircraft on Earth for 7 years, do you really need to go through protocols like this?" A voice on the other end of the radio says.
"Old habits die hard." Jason says in response, "Now clear the pad for touchdown."
"Rodger..." The voice says, sighing.
"Agh... why can't I get this right!?!" I nearly shout at...well, myself...hm...not usually a good sign of success... Ugh... I need to figure out this dang problem, and fast, the others are counting on me, but, man... I need some sleep, or some soda, or something... I think as I finally decide to leave behind the problem, the current virus that's spreading through the town, and leave the small building which can only be referred to as a lab by the broadest of broadest senses of the word. I then walk over to the airport...or, our little mock-up airport, my head pounding from trying to figure that virus out. Well, it's a good thing I still have the Deus pills...these things are amazing, and, I guess, if things get really bad, I'll just have to use these...let's hope things don't get that bad though. I think as I notice the Phoenix 1 has actually landed, the very notion that it's here again did give me a bit of hope...as stupid as that may sound, it was true. I then lean up on what we're calling walls by now, a hodgepodge of scrap metal, cardboard, and wooden squares forming the rough shape of a rectangle.
Jason touches down on the landing pad. He gets out to help unload supplies from the cargo bays of the airship. As he heads into town to stockpile the things, he spots Robert leaning heavily on a wall. "You alright, Rob?"
"Ugh... it's just this dang virus that has me getting headaches, again." I say to Jason. I then walk up to him and ask "So... anything new with you? Traveling the skies to get supplies?" I then realize that what I just said rhymed, and chuckle a bit. Ah, that bit of laughter did seem to help with the headache, and, for a moment, I completely forgot about that virus...it felt pretty good.... I think as I await Jason's no doubt critical view on the phrase.
"Yeah, pretty much..." Jason says, stretching for a bit. He reaches into one of the boxes and pulls out a bottle of Tylenol and tosses it to Robert. "I'll sign that out for you later, I got to go check in with the others." He re-grips the boxes in hands as he walks off, "Don't blow up the building again..." he says somewhat jokingly.
"Hey, I almost had it that last time, just didn't calculate what would happen if someone dropped a cheeseburger into the machine..." I say to Jason after I catch the Tylenol, I then take one pill from it, and eat it whole. "You know, lately, these things have been almost like candy for me... I think I need a break, or something." I then say to Jason as I start following him around, carrying whatever boxes I could.
"Well, okay, dad." I say to Jason, jokingly, I then say "I guess it would prevent any future mutantburgers, or random lab explosions." I then use my vines to start carrying more of the boxes, and ask "Man... where's Nix when you need her? Didn't this used to be her job, or something?"
*Cory was sitting infront of his computer, working outside for a change, with a folding chair and one of those picnic tables, writing lines and lines of code that only he could actually read. he glanced up at Robert and Jason talking not to far away, and went back to typing out his coding. he scratched his stubble.*
I need to shave....

Cory - I am one of the 1% that would not go insane if Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace were destroyed, if you're like me, copypasta this into your sig.
"Gaurd duty... well, I guess that means these supplies are going to have to be carried by us, huh?" I say to Jason as I continue carrying the boxes of supplies to the town, my vines helping out much more than my actual hands in this case. I continue walking into town, and end up bumping into someone...furry? I accidentally drop the box that I was carrying, and all my vines return to the ground. "oh...uh, welcome to Phoenix, newcomer." I say to the...creature... um...what was that one, again? Let's see...agh, I'll have to ask my parents later, he may be a pokémon. I think as I get back up, and dust myself off.
"Hello, this is the first place that I've found with humans... I've searched from Colorado to Idaho to North Dakota to New york to here, and I haven't found anywhere but here with humans... or at least things I can communicate with... What's that over there?" I ask, seeing what looks like a core with an orange eye, just sitting on the ground.
"Oh...that used to be Orange, a management core...he...er, well, he's no longer active, or fixable." I explain to the odd, fox or catlike creature, I then ask "So, what's your name, newcomer?" I then think Hm...is he maybe an eevee? My parents did say that those pokémon could take on several different 'evolutions', or new forms...odd... as I think this, I look at the thing with a puzzled look.
Alex picks up his backpack and walks around their new town. Did we even name this one? I can't remember. Weird, it was the first thing we did in Phoenix. I guess we've been busier here. Whatever. Now where does Corey work. I think it's behind here. Alex walks around a rather tall building. I wonder what that is for. I really need to explore this town more. He sees Corey. "Hey!" He walks over and stops in front of him. Alex has grown a stubble too and isn't skinny anymore. He has become very muscular due to his job. Had to stay in shape when you protected everyone... It was the only way he could help round here... Anyways "Hey Corey I've heard you've been updating old games. Well I have some free time and I made some of those games myself. Can I help?"
((ARGH! NO! The mythology nerd inside of me is making me do this. Prometheus was a Titan (Basically a god) in Greek mythology. The most important thing he did was create man from clay and then later steal fire from Zeus and give it to man.)) Oh that's right we named it Phoenix. Again.
