Naboo

Outskirts of Theed

The stinky planet of Naboo. To this day, Scherezade couldn't truly understand why anyone liked it. It was to humid, and the air smelled like fish, which she supposed was to be blamed on the Gungans who made up most of the planet's population.

 

It had felt so strange coming back here. She had always hated this planet, hated it the first time she ever stepped foot on it, and loathed it at all the other times as well. But there was something important that had happened there while she had not existed, and that was something she wanted to take another look at.

 

Madalena had shown her the memories. Scherezade knew that this was where Madalena and Brayden had found each other. There was so much to think of; what she had done, the new traumas that now decorated her newly shattered heart, decisions to make about coming clean to those who led the Confederacy about what she had done…

 

But those could wait.

 

For now, Scherezade walked around the plains that bordered on Theed, looking at the greenery and the blue sky. And as the last time she'd looked at them, she knew that her brother was not there, and the loneliness threatened to harm her again.


Scherezade's Random Assortment of Stuff That Anyone Can Use

15 March 2019 - 02:03 PM

Sometimes I make cute things that make me laugh. Sometimes people want to share them. I'll be tossing my things into this thread. Anyone on Chaos is welcome to use them. Right now the list is small as I've gotta fetch things from multiple places so please be patient. At present, I am not taking any requests.

Diragoni [Dragon/Near-Human Shifter Species]

06 March 2019 - 03:33 AM

OOC: This sub is a WIP and I expect it will take me at least a week or two to complete. Anyone is welcome to provide feedback at any stage ♥

 

 

 

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

  • Intent: To enjoy the ban lift on dragons and create a new and unique dragon shifting species.
  • ​Image Credit: n/a
  • Canon: No
  • Links: [ Provide links to any relevant threads, characters, companies, locations, equipment, etc here. ]

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Name: Diragoni
    • Males: Diragonnno
    • Females: Diragonna
    • Others: Diragi
  • Designation: Sentient
  • Origins: [ This can be a planet (canon or Chaos canon sub), a company's lab, a region of space, extra-galactic, etc. Provide a link if applicable. ]
  • Average Lifespan:
    • Males: 150 years
    • Females: 200 years
  • Estimated Population: Rare
  • Description: The Diragoni are a shifting species, going between dragon and near-human. In dragon form, they are gigantic, regal, and beautiful to behold, harnessing one of four abilities (fire, ice, air, and healing). In human forms, they stand very tall and have softly pointed ears. The Diragoni live in small clusters called colonies, which hold anywhere between three and thirty members. Colonies with a male will usually have more members in them, and each colony will strive to have at least one male. Male births are rare, and the vast majority of this species is female. As such, having a male, either by birth or by purchase, is considered important, and males are treated as prizes. The females of a Diragoni colony, called the Diragonna, are tasked with taking care of the colony; upkeep, education, protection, financial wellness, mental wellness, and more, where as the males, called Diragonno, are tasked with emotional wellness and fertilizing the eggs. More sex-based differences exist between the Diragonna and the Diragonno. 

PHYSICAL INFORMATION

  • Breathes: Type I
  • Average Height of Adults:
    • Diragonno
      • Dragon Form: 35-40 meters
      • Near-Human Form: 2.2 meters
    • Diragonna
      • Dragon Form: 40-45 meters
      • Near-Human Form: 2 meters
  • Average Length of Adults:
    • Diragonno
      • Dragon Form: 90 meters
        • Tail: 30 meters
      • Near-Human Form: n/a
    • Diragonna
      • Dragon Form: 100 meters
        • Tail: 40 meters
      • Near-Human Form: n/a
  • Skin color: [ Their commons skin colors. ]
  • Hair color: [ Their common hair colors, if any. ]
  • Distinctions: [ Describe the unique physical traits that define what they are and set them apart from more common species like humans. Be sure to include any differences between male and female, as well variations between differing regional groups if any, and characteristics that denote a matured or aging specimen. ]
  • Races:
    • Akara – the Akara are Diragonna colonies who are absent of a male, and can therefore not have their eggs fertilized. While it is perfectly normal for some of the colonies to be male-less for a few years, the Akara are those who have been stamped as male-less, and both other colonies and they themselves do not believe that the situation would ever change for their colony. Young Akara colonies will often attempt to disband in the hopes of being separated and accepted into other colonies. However, aging Akara members will often find themselves grouping together to keep each other company due to lack of being desired or wanted in other colonies unless they are exceptionally wealthy. They are forgotten females, old females, and females deemed useless and no longer important by their own kind.
    • More to be added
  • Force Sensitivity: Standard

Strengths:

  • [ Provide, in list format, some strengths of this submission. 2 recommended. ]

Weaknesses:

  • You May Only Have One – A Diragoni may only have one single power (fire, water, air, healing). Once that power emerges, all hope for the other powers is completely snuffed out.

  • As You Shift – while a Diragoni shifts from dragon to near-human form, they are completely vulnerable. They cannot fight, they cannot defend themselves, they cannot use their racial powers, and if they are Force Users, they cannot use the Force.

  • The Lone Dirakoni Does Not Survive – Dirakoni are social creatures who live in close colonies and have very little personal space (by their own choice). A Dirakoni who is separated from others will have their life expectancy cut down by half (on average). Dirakoni who find companionship with non-Dirakoni will also experience a shortened life span,but the shortening will be at a reduced rate.

CULTURE

  • Diet: [ Herbivore, Omnivore, Carnivore, Other (please explain). Note down common foods and preferences, what is poisonous, etc. ]
  • Communication: [ How do they communicate? A spoken language (if so, tell us which), through barks and yips, body language, telepathy, etc. ]
  • Technology level: [ Describe their societal technology level if it differs from Galactic Standard. ]
  • Religion/Beliefs: [ If this species has a prominent religion or set of beliefs, describe them here. ]
  • General behavior: [ Describe general behaviors such as: family life, values, how they raise their young, how they find mates, how they interact with the world and other species around them. Do they hunt? Do they build? Are they inventors? Are they explorers? Are they nocturnal or diurnal? Do they attend schools? Etc, etc. ]

HISTORICAL INFORMATION
[ Include a description of the species history here. If your species is genetically engineered or Sithspawn please describe the process through which they were created, by who, and why. Explain the various challenges encountered during their creation. Most galactic species will be quite old - include major events relevant to the species in how they evolved and developed into what they are today where appropriate. Including Chaos canon events, where they impacted the history of this species, is a plus. ]

Something was gnawing on the insides of Madalena as the Nutcracker broke through Kashyyyk's atmosphere and began to land at the Rest. Perhaps it was because she hadn't seen Josh in a while and so much had happened since – whatever it was that was going or not going on with Cardinal Vi'dreya, her temporary role as Queen of Eshan, her advancements both in the field and out of it, just to name a few. And yet, she and Josh used to meet regularly, aside from the last month or two, so seeing her best friend again was supposed to be a happy event, no?

 

And yet, he had asked to meet at the Rest. Madalena wasn't sure, but it sounded like he was… Serious in a non-regular way? She wanted to say that he sounded like he had big bad news to tell her, but it could just as well have been nothing more than just her imagination. Looking over the Baal, she pet his head, smiling as he licked her hand in return. Baal always knew how to make her feel better, but why was she even in need of being made to feel better?

 

"I wish you'd speak to me too and not just to kids," she sighed before leaning down to kiss his head.

 

Once the Nutcracker was docked and all was taken care of, Madalena walked off the ramp, sensing out with the Force to find out where Josh was. While this was very deeply a Jedi place, the people there were used to her by now; or at least, she liked to think they were, because most of the smiles appeared friendly, but she wouldn't poke their brains to check and accidentally cause a diplomatic clusterkrak. It was very adulty of her.

 

Sighing, the former Queen of Eshan looked around, wondering if she should have let Baal come with her.

Sod, daughter of Dvar, daughter of Raz, of Vashti

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PHYSICAL INFORMATION

  • Age: About 40
  • Force SensitivityMaster
  • Species: Human
  • Appearance: No one has seen Sod's face in years. She is a tall woman, with a very slender build which often gives the appearance that she could blow away if the wind was strong enough. As her face, so is her body clad in fabrics, airy, revealing little to nothing of the skin beneath. What little skin does on occasion show, people seem to be unable to agree as to its color, and have described everything from pale to ebony black. It appears that the only thing people can agree on are her eyes – big as a deer's and blacker than night, leaving people uncomfortable when they gaze too long.

SOCIAL INFORMATION

  • Name: Sod
  • Loyalties:
  • Wealth: None. Sod has no job and no income. However, she is able to provide for herself, using the Force to take just what she needs and little to nothing beyond that.
  • Notable Possessions: Sod holds one of the twenty missing vials of the children of Nessarose deWinter and @Diomedes Antares.
  • Skills: Sod has been raised as a Sith Sorceress, her abilities over the mental aspect of the Force incredibly well trained and advanced. Her skill lays mostly in the Force Power Alter Image, which she uses frequently to keep herself hidden and safe.
  • Personality: Sod is not a woman of many words. She owes the fact that she is alive mostly due to her ability to remain silent, and prefers body language over verbality whenever possible. She is quiet, preferring to listen rather than to convey, and shies away from social situations at almost any cost. When people come too close (physically), she grows anxious, taking a step back whenever possible, and lashing out when it isn't.

COMBAT INFORMATION

  • Weapon of Choice: The Force
  • Combat Function: Stealth and evasion – Sod is not a woman who fights, and when confronted with battle she will almost always choose to run away.

Strengths

  • Stealth – Sod is excellent at hiding, covering in the shadows, and tricking unprotected minds into thinking that she is not there, all through the Force.Illusions and Alter Image – Sod has the ability to make people think they are seeing what she wishes them to see.

Weaknesses

  • When Sod's illusions and spells are broken, she is entirely defenseless, easy to harm, easy to kill.Brittle Bones – Sod is more susceptible to bone breakage than the average human. What could leave a big bruise on most people is enough to leave her with fractures and breakage.

HISTORICAL INFORMATION
Sod was born on Endelaan, as a scion to Clan Vashti. Her parents were part of the Seraphine – the ruling council of Endelaan that served its people in the absence of the King and Queen. Although she was the middle child, she was the only one among her sibling to show potential in strength to join the Seraphine, and her parents saved no expenses on fitting her with the best Force education they could. Her life followed a pretty boring pattern in that regard. Born to a good family, received a good education, and seated upon the Council of the Seraphine before she was 25.
 
Sod was taken under the mentorship of Arastos, who at the time was a Seraphine himself, and would later lead the Quintus – a group of five individuals seeking to remove the love and power of the Royal Family from the planet so that they may continue to possess influence over it through the shadows, not shielding away from manipulating anything and anyone, including groups of Endelaan who were considered sacred.
 
Sod had no idea of that when she began to grow beneath his guidance. But Arastos saw great potential in her powers and choice of expertise (illusions, mind tricks, avoidance) and attempted to bring her over to his side. So certain was he that she would follow him to it, that he let her in; the two performed the Bond of Ruling, akin to getting married on Endelaan, and he believed that he had a loyal wife who would help him with his ambitions in any way that she could.
 
At first, Sod was entirely enchanted, having lived most of her life void of romantic involvement. Yet as time passed, she began to realize what Arastos was doing and planning. She resumed and kept the act up for years while with him, trying to learn as much as she could, and trying to find an escape. Arastos continued to grow in power and shadow influence, yet she saw the roots of his doings in nearly everything around her, pushing her to hide and hold back even more, unable to find the right moment to strike and protect the planet that was her home.
 
When Arastos took Sod to the chamber of the vials, Sod thought she would die for lack of breath. It was there that Arastos showed her what he had discovered many years prior – seven centuries ago, the Queen of Endelaan, Nessarose deWinter, had undergone an accident, and would never be able to bear children, for all her eggs had been released and fertilized at the same time. Her body could not hold on to it, almost killing her as she began to miscarry all at once. One of the Scientists that she had brought with her from the Core saved her life. Nessarose's body had hung on to twins – Scherezade deWinter and Brayden Antares – and four hundred eggs had been saved, stored away as embryos. The embryos were meant to be partially used at a later time, after the twins were older, and the unused ones were meant to be destroyed. But when the Gulag began to sweep the Galaxy over and the Royal Family disappeared, the room was forgotten. Astaros had discovered it, and had already stolen some of the embryos.
 
With Sod, he stole three more, and the two left the Forbidden Temple undetected. Sod knew what Astaros wished to do; to bring those embryos to life, to have members of the Royal Family under his influence and under his bidding. And she also knew she could not stand against him, could not gather the political support needed to oppose him, and would be in danger if she even tried.
 
But she could not do nothing.
 
Sod managed to escape Endelaan, using one of the little ships that was used very rarely to scan the nearby parts of the planets. And with her, she had managed to carry one of the Embryos.
 
She has been traveling for several years now, trying to find any of the scions of the Family of Darkness, believing that if they were raised and lived outside of the influence of her husband, they would be able to protect it, and perhaps return to their home planet. Thus, she has been entirely unlucky in her journey.
