Name: Rallath
Species: Lanius
Age: 113
Gender: (do laniuses even have genders?) Male

Specialization: Engineering, but forced into piloting after the old pilot was killed by a rebel fighter

Physical Description: Noticeably smaller than usual laniuses, and by extent, weaker. However, his spikes are much sharper than the standard lanius, and he can manipulate his arms and metal much farther past the extent that usual lanius can.

Personality: Quite friendly, loyal and brave. However, he likes to take risks too often, and is quite the dreamer, thinking outlandishly and not mattering about what he can actually do. Also, it takes quite a long time for him to build trust other species, excluding the crystalmen.

Quirks: Likes to try to build things that are impossible to make. Keyword is try. His last project was a mind-control that could mind-control an entire planet. Needless to say, it did not go well.

Backstory: Rallath's early years were very uneventful. It was only when the group of ships he was in attempted to take on a rebel station armed with a black-hole generator when things got interesting. Of course, they were powerless to stop the weapon. But when a pack of three ships jumped in, and the station began producing a black-hole, the lanius ships decided to change their minds and surrender.

As the black-hole charged up, they decided to flee very quickly. However, one of the ships from the pack of three stayed behind as the other two prepared to jump. It then powered up its tractor beam and caught one of the fleeing lanius ships. The ship suddenly then flung the ship at the rebel station. It then did it a second time, with Rallath deciding that whoever was piloting that ship was a cold-hearted bastard. But his biggest loss was yet to come.

Just when he thought that all the ships were out of range of the beam, he saw the ship furthest behind get clutched and trapped by the demonic ship's tractor beam. Rallath very well knew the reason is was behind. He knew that the ship's impulse drives were not operating at maximum efficiency. He knew that his relocation to his new ship caused his old ship to lack an engineer. He knew that his family and friends were on that ship. And he knew what was going to happen next.

After that, he could never forgive the captain of the Mutare (or Mature? Jake seems to call it the Mature, but all the rest call it the Mutare. Honestly I would have gone with calling it The Kingfisher, but whatever /offtopic), even though he ended up in the same fleet as the ship. Give him the chance, and its captain would be dead within minutes. But sometimes he wonders, was it his pride that had killed his family? Would they still be here if he hadn't jumped at the chance to pilot his own ship? Whoever caused it, Rallath was now the captain of the ships that represented the lanius in the United Rouge Union.

And he wanted the commander of the fleet dead.

(Edit: Also my first post!)



Well shit. I'm screwed.

Eden hates me, and now a Lanius is trying to kill me. Honestly, Jake's not a bad guy. He was trying to defend his crew!!!

In other words, ACCEPTED! I can't tell you how much I love this character!

One Important Question:
How do we find you? You are an enemy of the United Rogue Union, so will we meet up in battle? Is that what you had in mind? If you'd like to meet up in battle, just dramatically jump in during our R&R right now and start shooting at us.

However, I think it'd be cooler if we met up on a station/outpost, face-to-face. A kind of showdown. Of course, this is completely up to you,
but a cool ominous figure stalking Jake through the allies of some trading outpost might be fun. IDK, your call.

Well...I got an idea how we can meet him...a distress beacon only the lanius of our fleet can detect. We follow it thinking its friendly and then we find out the truth

I just figured he was a member of one of the Lanius ships in the fleet, perhaps he convinced the commander/captain of the ship to not join the Rogue Union?

I think that before the event with the rebel station black hole, the captain of one of the ships died, and so Rallath volunteered to be the new captain of that ship. And the first two ships destroyed during the encounter were the ships that were the escorts, and Rallath's ship was the remaining ship that had weaponry, thus making Rallath in charge.

Regarding convincing the leader of the fleet to ally with the URU, I think that Rallath, being the one in charge, met the Scarab after the retreat from the black hole. Seeing their defensive capabilities, as well as affiliation with a crystalman, the entire lanius fleet unanimously decided to join the Scarab's faction. Even after Rallath realised that the ship that killed his family was in the fleet as well, he still stayed in, knowing that if he pulled out, the fleet would perish.

Also, does anybody outside of the crew of the Scarab, Jake and Sarah know about Jake throwing the ships into the black hole? Because I believe that only they know about it.

EDIT: Also Rallath is on the fleet of lanius ships.

And yes, I may or may not be planning to make Rallath do a coup on Jake.

Well, crap.
I've read over another piece of fanwork I did, and what I picked up is that the current character I have doesn't really have a clear direction to take.
Basically, I had a start to my character, which was to use the extra time while scanning for a droid to scrap the lanius fleet and use the materials to create the Kruos, and his storyline would end with him threatening to kill Jake with the aid of the hacking and mind-control systems before being thwarted by a clonebay and another coup against him, passing on the control to another lanius, and it probably would have been good. But the mid-part would be very difficult to write for, with conflicting ideas such as whether he should act loyal and make the impact bigger, or draw it out and give subtle hints about his true desires.

Don't worry. This doesn't mean I'll stop with this, nor does that mean elements from Rallath will go unused. Heck, Rallath will probably return later in the story. And be affiliated with the rebels as well. It just means that I'll be choosing another main character.

I'll make another character in about 9 hours

This character can be an intermittent enemy, which appears at various plot-points throughout the RP. You can use him any time unexpectedly.

This means you can also create a "solid" character, which you use throughout the duration of the story.

Rallath will return!

And with that, here is the ne-*cough* definitely my first character!

Name: Luxa
Species: lanius
Gender: Female
Age: 16 (very young, much question)
Physical features: Common and Uninteresting (no, she's not a human)

Personality: Shy, oddball, docile, emotional
Quirks: Unable to go into hibernation, much more amorous than usual laniuses due to that

Backstory: Luxa's ancestors found themselves unable to hibernate, along with a few other families of laniuses. Therefore they had to run around like scavengers, looking for a good meal. Due to being unable to hibernate, the families reproduced much more often than regular laniuses, resulting in lots of younger laniuses. Luxa was one of the youngest in the fleet, but after the black hole incident, she found herself the oldest, even if only by a couple of days. Because of the lanius's hierarchy system, Luxa was now in control of the fleet. Although initially quite happy in the United Rouge Union due to the protection, some members in the fleet very unhappy after discovering that the ship that killed their parents was in the fleet as well.

Oh, and she has a boyfriend name Rallath.
Who may or may not have lost his close family due to Jake.
*cough*


Well that's what I'm saying. This is your MAIN character, but Rallath still EXISTS.

Is that right? Or am I unclear on something? I just don't understand how Rallath fits into this.
