Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules! But in this case, follow them or erasure!

Be sure to constantly check the update thread for any changes to the boards. You can find it ->Here<-

More to come


The Maker

" I?"

The Biography

Birth Name: Nihil
Aliases: Nil
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Birth Day: Unknown
Arcana: 0 - The Fool
Place of Residence: Little Tokyo
Academy Semester: N/A
Class: N/A
Sorority:  N/A

Part/Full Time Job: N/A

Appearance: Nihil has short, fluffy black hair that somewhat falls into his face. Although he does have a white jumpsuit, he doesn't want to stand out and draw attention to himself, causing an uproar. To deal with this, he....."procured" some clothing that was hanging out to dry unattended. He wears a long-sleeved shirt, covering up his upper body and arms. Beneath that, he wears long, baggy pants that help to hide the mechanical parts underneath along with a pair of slip on shoes. Why slip-ons? He doesn't know how to tie shoe laces. With the clothing similar to people around him he shouldn't stand out too much......right?

Alternate Appearance:        

When Nihil has summoned his persona, he dons the white jumpsuit that clothed him when he woke up. It covers his entire body and fits his form, preventing any wind resistance in movements and giving him full mobility of his body. One should note, however, when he enters Orgia mode he gains a white helmet covering his head, adorned with a golden V-shaped piece. Alongside this, his face is entirely covered aside from his blue eyes, which gain a very eerie, ominous glow to them.
(Note: The large 'C' in the center of the chest is not present. Wouldn't make much sense for him, now would it?)

Personality: Although ASSW's are robots created with the ability to have a unique personality, Nihil is extremely stoic and blank. Not only was he created for fighting, which affected his personality before his memory loss, he has lost all his memories. And what are memories but things that create our personalities? Because of this, he is quiet but somewhat friendly and very curious. He doesn't show much emotion but seems to have a "heart". He rarely has the chance to, but he does enjoy assisting others. He hates injustice, and wants to protect those around him. He has no knowledge of why he feels these things, but it's a feeling he gets deep inside himself. On the topic of rage, jealousy, sadness, etc. these are emotions he does not exhibit often. He's empty, and void. It's quite rare he shows any sign of happiness at all because of this. When you think about it, his existence is quite a tragic one...

The Potential


Strength Name: Durable Body
Description: Being a machine made of metal, Nihil's body is quite strong and durable, requiring quite a bit of force to deal permanent damage.

Strength Name: Physical Strength
Description: Being an ASSW, he is able to push past human limits and gain inhuman strengths when needed. This allows him to lift and move things that ordinary people could not. However, doing so requires entering Orgia mode.

Strength Name: Quick Reflexes
Description: Built for combat, his reflexes were made to be lightning quick, helping him to attempt taking as little damage as possible during battles.

Strength Name: Robotic Legs
Description: Speed is a necessity in battle, and it's quite obvious that a being created for such a thing would have it. Due to enhancers in his legs, he can cross distances faster than most, and jump higher than humanly possible.

Floating Strength Name:

Weaknesses: (You must have the same amount of weaknesses as strengths. These weaknesses pertain to you and not your Persona. IE: Physically Weaker, lack of attention span, etc.)

Weakness Name: Missing Cooling Systems
Description: Because of unknown reasons, Nihil is missing his own cooling systems. Because of this, he cannot remain in Orgia Mode too long, or else he suffers damage. After exiting Orgia Mode, he must take an extra turn to cool down.

Weakness Name: Amnesiac
Description: Nihil has no recollection of who or what he is. When he woke up, all he knew was his name, a feeling of emptiness, and the rubble on top of him.

Weakness Name: Weapon Inexperience
Description: Although he was built for battle, Nihil only has knowledge of hand to hand combat techniques. What this means is that if someone were to give him some sort of weapon other than his own body, he would have no idea of how to use it.

Weakness Name: Fear of Self
Description: Because he has no knowledge of his past or what he is, he's actually quite terrified at his body underneath the clothing.


Floating Weakness Name:

Soul Bound Weapon: (This is the weapon you'll be able to summon to your hand while in combat. This weapon is special for your character specifically and allows you to fight Shadows without the need of summoning your Persona. This can be anything but a Gun (Or gun related weapon))

Weapon Name: Fists
Weapon Description: Nihils own fists that are made from a strong, durable metallic alloy.
Weapon Image: Imagine a fist
Weapon Attack Type: Strike
Weapon Element: N/A

Side-Arm Weapon:

Side-Arm Name: Internal Weaponry
Side-Arm Description: Guns built into Nihils body, the barrels being his fingers capped by finger tips that remove when in use.
Side-Arm Image: N/A
Side-Arm Attack Type: Gun
Side-Arm Style: Machine Gun

Machine Gun - Muti-Round - Accuracy is decreased by 30%. Consumes 3 types of ammo at once to fire -must be same type of ammo.)

The Background

Many groups in this world research and experiment with the supernatural. Such a group, an underground research center, is where Nihil was made. They created him from data they had found so he could be a type of bodyguard for the president of the group, and assist him in his research into the beings known as shadows. This is why his body is reinforced and durable, made for close quarters combat but also allowing him to fight at range via guns placed in his fingers. However, one day the shadows the group had been researching broke free and began to overrun the research complex. All the people in the complex were killed, including the man he was assigned to protect. With his back pushed to the wall, he was forced to fight the shadows until they began to overtake him and suddenly everything turned black.
      Many days later, he woke up in the ruins of the research center broken and alone. He had taken quite the bit of damage, so much so that his memory banks had been corrupted and damaged leaving him with only his name. With no memory of who, or what, he is Nihil set out. He didn't know what he was searching for exactly, but he didn't let that stop him. He walks from place to place now, currently hiding in Little Tokyo in an attempt to be like the people around him and live a normal life.

Just bear in mind that when entering Orgia Mode you have to stay in it for the three turns. It cannot be cancelled out of. And any inhuman boons you get from strengths are naturally only accessible in Orgia Mode. Be sure to fix up whatever is needed, namely the weakness and you're approved.
