Death God Rising (OC)Age:
Theo has to figure out how to tell his teammates that he thinks the ritual murders that they’ve been investigating may be fueling a ritual that will re-empower his father’s godly powers and are being carried out by a brother he never met and thought was ‘dead’. Or at least as dead as a god can get. Abilities/Powers:
Theo is a highly powerful necromancer. In fact he should have been god of the undead, except that the current one is still around so he wasn’t able to take their place when he turned eighteen. This has left him in a state of godly limbo. He’s not really a god. He’s not really mortal. He’s not really a demi-god. Perhaps a tougher than average mortal would be the best way to explain him. His touch of divinity is shown through his silver eyes (though they’re not really a power persay). He can see in the dark like a normal person can see in the day. Back to his necromantic powers: with his blood he can raise a zombie or skeleton easily. With a bit more blood and effort he can raise someone recently dead as another type of undead. Not something he enjoys doing because well, it takes a lot of blood. He reads as undead to most people who can sense these things, and to others he’s just sort of got a creepy aura. He can command and rebuke unintelligent undead and intelligent undead will hesitate greatly before hurting or attacking him.
Non-divine abilities are that he’s an expert thief and pick-pocket. There are very few locks that he can’t pick or disable. He’s also good with slight of hand tricks. He’s gone through FBI training and is an expert marksman with several types of firearms. He’s also very good with knives. Finally, if you want to do a hostile takeover of a business, there’s very few people better than that. Power Limitations:
In the normal realm of things, Theo is highly sensitive to daylight. He has to wear sunglasses all the time during the day or in bright rooms. He also has a tendency to be nocturnal and has a mild caffeine addiction because of needing to be awake during the day when he his body says otherwise. I imagine he wouldn’t be able to raise greater undead or any undead at all, since that seems to be the purview of the forest and the fey that reside there. Inventory

Personality:( Read more... )History: ( Read more... )First Person Sample:
There are some days I don’t think it’s worth getting out of bed. Especially when the bed contains the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known and especially when the reason why you’re getting out of bed is to sit in a meeting with a bunch of men while they walked around the subject you wanted to talk about, not wanting to commit to anything.
Yeah. Politicians suck.
Sometimes I wish they were vampires, because while they still sucked, I might be able to get them to do something. I don’t know how my father gets them to do it, but I’ve yet to figure out how.
Well, one more chance at it. Hopefully it’ll be short.
Likely it won’t. Prose Sample:
[3-5 paragraphs, 3rd Person POV]
"What do you think about Greenland?"
Theo looked up at his father from his desk. He was going over an acquisition contract for some company or another. He wasn't sure which, it was one of his father's subsidiaries that was acquiring it. "Not very green. I think it has good oil reserves." He pondered asking why his father was asking and decided against it.
His father got a thoughtful look on his face. "I wonder if I should sell it back to them."
His father owned Greenland.
Of course his father owned Greenland.
Why wouldn't he own Greenland?
Theo couldn't think of a reason. "I think their economy is a bit weak for that right now," he said.
"You're right." His father put down the old sheet of paper he was looking at and stuck it into a drawer.
With a shake of his head, Theo went back to his work. Special Notes:
