[AGE:] 20
[HAIR/EYE COLOR:] dark auburn hair; hazel eyes
[STATUS:] ex-member of the Dragons biker gang, drifter, hacker

Jude stands around 5'9'' and weighs 145lb of muscle. Looks slender but not delicate. Her hair is cut into a short cap of curls, the curls are just long enough to hang in her eyes but not quite long enough to stay tucked behind her ears. Has the kanji for 'fukushusha' [avenger:] tattooed to the back of her neck. She has a truly beautiful smile; however, she rarely smiles.

jeans, dark tank-top/t-shirts with either a leather jacket or work-shirt.

Two guns: One Seburo-think a rather big rifle with assorted shells and a hand-gun sized submachine gun with a silencer (think Ghost in the Shell). She has problems handling the recoil of the Seburo.

Her computer (one modified to hell NAVI-think Serial Experiments Lain): hey, information is power and she is superb at getting information. Whether people like it or not. ^_~

Fighting-She's not bad with either gun, but she has problems controlling the recoil, e.g. she has to really focus to get off a good shot with that one. A decent martial artist, but she's never been trained. Everything that she knows comes from running with the Dragons, so some of it can be pretty erratic. Jude is very agile and fast, that's what keeps her alive when it comes to hand-to-hand fights since she doesn't really have skill of strength. Note: she's fast for a HUMAN, doesn't mean she's going to be able to dodge bullets-not unless she knows exactly where the guy is aiming before he shoots-but she will be able to dodge most punches/kicks that come her way.

Computer-Jude doesn't really need an interface. Computers love her, which means that she can enter the wired through thought alone. All she has to do it touch a computer and she has access to the wired-all of it, not just that individual computer. (unless that computer has absolutely NO connection to the outside world) Larger computer will wrap their assorted wires, circuitry, and whatever else around Jude to demonstrate their love, this causes problems. This only happens with computers. Jude has no mechanical ability. However, Jude can directly 'download' information into her mind. She also remembers all of it. However, there is a limit to how much she can handle, and if she goes beyond that she slips into a comma that lasts about three weeks. When she wakes up she remembers nothings about what happened.

Non-fighting-Jude can cook for 24 without breaking a sweat and always knows what wine goes with a meal. Pretty damned impressive on her bike. (BTW, touching her bike is a 'do not pass go, do not collect $200' trip to Hell.)

Flashbacks at really inappropriate times: more of a problem than you would think. Try talking to someone when they are turning really funky color/shapes and see how long you're able to stay focused on the conversation, now apply that to a fight.

Claustrophobia: A major problem considering her method of connection to the wired. Since her NAVI wraps itself around her, it triggers her claustrophobia. Therefore, she can only handle three hours of melding with the computer, anything longer than that and she passes out for varying amounts of time. After each meld she's pretty much useless for about 30 minutes, since she is a trembling, irrational ball. Small rooms, elevators, etc. are a no-go for her. Not a chance in hell you're getting her in a room any smaller than 15 by 10 feet-even then she's pretty nervous.

Misc. Jude does not swim. Toss her in a lake and she'll sink like a rock. Does not know when to stop harassing cops and she never passes on dares or bets.

Feisty in a laconic kind of way-it can be done. Lets just say you don't want to piss her off. She's an ex-member of a biker gang and 90% of the time she still acts like a street punk, which means incessant insults to authority figures and anyone else she thinks deserves it. (Such a pity she doesn't quite have the hand-to-hand ability to pull this off…) However, there is something so fragile about her that instead of feeling the need to beat the living daylights out of her most people feel very protective towards her. Most of the time she is fairly mellow and soft-spoken. She doesn't trust most people as far as she could throw them-which ain't far; however, once someone proves that they are trustworthy she becomes a fast and fearless friend. Hurt-or even try to hurt-someone she cares about and she will track you down and do her damnedest to make you pay for it, normally in slow and very inventive ways. Whatever caused the destruction of the Dragons has scarred Jude deeply and she dwells on it. Her loss makes her pretty bitter and unforgiving of weakness in herself. (Not that she's all that forgiving of weakness in other people either.)


Stranger: "What?" Stands with her legs braced and her arms crossed, head cocked with one eyebrow raised.
Cop: "Heya Pig! How's it going protecting the donuts?"
Friend: "Wsup?"
Fellow ex-Dragon: "Oh. MY. GOD!!" Proceeds to fling herself into the arms of the other person.

from a cop: "Bad cop, no donut!!" And proceeds to beat the shit out of them; oh, she will never back down form a cop.
anyone else: "Bug off" turns around and walk away. If she wants a fight she'll tell you.

from a cop: Cop can expect to receive a sound beating. If there is more than one she'll try to kill as many as possible before taking off. (She hates cops remember?)
someone weaker than her: "Bug off"
someone of equal strength: Depends on what's going on. Normally she'll just try to shoot them and be done with it.
someone stronger than her: Enter submachine gun and bike. She'll take a couple shots and then run like hell towards her bike.
In the wired: person can expect to get brain-burned. The computers generally will refuse to attack her anyway.

(a cop) "And why don't you take that night-stick and shove it [insert orifice of choice here:]?" said in a sickly-sweet tone.
(anyone else) "Why don't you sit down and we'll talk?"

Jude used to be a member of a biker gang known as the Dragons. Whatever caused the end to them-and every other major gang in the city-she will not talk about. It destroyed her life and her perception of the world, from which she still has not recovered. She's just drifted around ever since without any real focus. The only solid part in her life is her friends Argentyne and J.J., whom she'll periodically go back to visit. Money isn't a problem for obvious reasons (hey, she's not exactly what you call an upstanding member of society) so she doesn't have any real focus accept avenging the members of her gang who are dead.

[AGE:] N/A
[HAIR/EYE COLOR:] Black/ green-gray
[STATUS:] Bound to Earth until she can answer Kami-sama's question

Kai's is pretty hard to miss since she has a pair of feathery wings with about 25-foot wingspan. She can make her wings disappear unless someone with supernatural powers or bloodlines is around. Kai stands at about 5'8'' and weighs 180lbs (Hey, those wings aren't light.) She has a willowy build. Kai' s main vanity is her long black hair that she wears in extravagant arrangements.

She prefers to wear things with open backs for obvious reasons. Weather permitting she just wears cutoffs and loose tank tops or halter tops. She does have the full on angelic wear (the billowing white robs etc.) but she hates wearing it and complains incessantly if she is forced into wearing it.

FLAMING SWORD OF GOD---RESRICTED ACCESS: Well, Kai doesn't have full access to the sword at this point because she hasn't answered Kami-sama's question. The sword only comes in its broadsword shape (see Kamui's sword in X-manga version--for an idea of what it looks like) with the flames. Kai can only call it from Heaven if Kami-sama gives Kai permission. Kai has to prove that it's a really major emergency if she wants access to the sword. (e.g. one of the major demons from the lower hells has to be rampaging thought CAPOW first.)

MARTIAL ARTS: Modified form of Kung-Fu (modified because she has a pair of big ass wings to deal with.). Kai doesn't have a whole lot of physical strength and her bones are more fragile than a normal humans (have to be lighter so she can actually fly) so she uses her wings and her speed to make up for her lack of strength. Her wings can kick-upquite a bit of air pressure but she has to get going to produce a significant blast. (e.g. it takes her about five minutes of pumping her wings hard to get a blast that will knock someone like Dachend backward).

SWORDFIGHTING: She's actually pretty good with her sword. Her skill level is somewhere between Ahlen and Tenris. Basically, she could knock Tenris on his butt, hold her own with Ahlen (for a while) and Dachend would use her to mop the floor. She doesn't use any flashy techniques or special moves.

MAGIC: Kai used to have all her Angelic abilities until Kami-sama kicked her down to Earth to answer Her question, but Kami-sama has bound Kai's powers to a book with an attitude named Amodeus. The book is a modified book of wisdom that acts as Kai's access to her powers, her guide, and her operating perimeters. Essentially, if she wants to do anything she has to flip through the book first. As it stands she can access:

Minor Healing: She has access to incantations or the 'recipe' to make potions to deal with most poisons and wounds ranging from small nicks, to minor fractures, and sprains.

Major Healing: To do major healing she has to get Kami-sama's permission and that depends on how she's been acting. If she can get permission she can do stuff like heal major bone fractures and severed limbs.

Exorcism: Kai is majorily miffed at this one since she used to be able to exorcise demons at a touch. Now she has to go through an incantation first. The level of her power with this also depends on how she's been acting. If she's been acting like Belldandy (not likely, about a 5% chance) she could get rid of a one of lower Lords of Hell. If she's been acting like Urd (only 20% of the time) she couldn't get rid of the most pathetic imp that Hell sent at her. And if she's been acting like Skuld (most likely) she could hand your average youkai/demon/evil whatever. This means she could deal with Inu-Yasha but Sesshoumarou would smear her down to her component atoms.

Note: any ability requiring the use of the book means that someone must protect Kai while she tries to find the appropriate incantation, ritual, whatever. It may take her sometime to find what she needs (beware of her accidentally trying the _wrong_ thing and screwing up everything) and then actually finishing the said incantation, ritual, whatever. Note on the book: Only Kai can actually read the incantions and assorted magic stuff in the book and only Kai can open the book. However, when Amodeus is just communicating anyone can read him. Most of the time he remains wherever Kai put him, but she can call him to her. If and only if he wants to come.

ANGELIC STATUS: She has some abilities built into her that can't be limited. Holy Aura: She can feel demonic/evil/ supernatural auras and can generally pin point where they are. She also makes anything with an evil/demonic aura distinctly uncomfortable if she's around, and her touch will actually leave welts. (works in reverse as well, see below)

Direct link to God. She can talk to Kami-sama at anytime (and does, normally to argue.) However, she cannot get back up into Heaven no matter what is going on until she answers that question.

WINGS (related stuff): Her wings come in handy for fighting but they're actually the most vulnerable spot on her body. They are extremely sensitive. Just grabbing them hard will put her into immediate agony. (If her wing gets broken she'll be completely useless) To kill her you have to rip off her wings first, which isn't as hard as you might think. Kai's wings are also her ticklish spot, especially right at the joints. Kai also has slightly thinner/lighter bones than a normal human being, and are more prone to getting broken if she isn't careful.

DARK MAGIC: As an angel she is especially sensitive to necromancy and other forms dark magic. Basically take whatever damage the spell is meant to do and triple it. Sleep spells seem to work unusually well with her.

DEMONS/YOUKAI/EVIL WHATEVER: Kai's holy aura works against her as well. Demons/youkai/ evil things-in-general will be able to sense her presence and tell where she is exactly if she's close enough. Demonic auras/evil auras give Kai distinct headaches and the stronger the entity the more negative her reaction will be to it. (e.g. Being around Dachend won't affect her. Dracho'xian and Kokutan's mere presence will require one large bottle of advil. Major demons will give her tension headaches and make her really bitchy.) If one of the said entities touches her it'll leave welts.

ARGUING WITH THE HIGHER POWERS: Or in this case THE higher power. She has a tendency to argue with Kami-sama, which gets her into all kinds of trouble. She also argues with that book (Amodeus) and that causes problems for her as well.

TECHNOLOGY: Don't give it to her! If you do expect a prompt and immediate explosion!

Kai was the troublemaker in Heaven and shows no signs of letting up while bound to the mortal planes. She is generally friendly, easy-going, and-for lack of a better word-sweet. She does have a mile wide argumentative streak. (This is the girl that argues with Kami-sama, don't expect her to back down from anyone else.) She has a mischievous streak just as wide, if not wider. If she starts to grin like a bandit watch out! She loves practical jokes, but has very little common sense when it comes to choosing people to play them on. (E.g. don't be surprised if she tries to play one on someone like Ryan or Dachend. O.O) Kai, to the large part, is fairly innocent when it comes to some of the most basic things, like the concept that people die. This innocence, combine with her delicate appearance, gives her an air of almost childlike fragility. That's deceptive, though, attack someone she cares about and she'll certainly try to make you pay for it. She won't hesitate to fight back if she has to, but she does prefer to avoid violence.


{A GREETING:} *folds wings, sticks out hand* "Hi! I'm Kai the Angel of Death-in-training. Nice to meet you." *Flashes giga-watt smile*

{A CHALLENGE:} *Unfurls wings* "Um, do you know who I am?" *keeps Amodeus-her book-very close.*

{AN ATTACK:} "Ach! Jude! Help!" *starts flipping through Amodeus madly*

{A PASS:} *Smiles* "Are you sure you want to ask the Angel of Death (in-training) on a date?"

Kai has been bound to the mortal plane until she answers a question posed by Kami-sama. Kai saved Jude's life without really understanding what she was doing. When Kami-sama talked to her about it later She decided that it was time that Kai was sent down to Earth to learn about death, dying, life, and what it means to live. Kami-sama told her to live amongst the mortals until she could tell Her what it meant to die, and thus what it meant to die. Once Kai answers that question she'll become the new Angel of Death. Kai, on the other hand, has no idea how she's supposed to go about answering that question and doesn't particularly want to answer it either. She's currently living with Jude-since Jude is part of the reason why Kai is down on Earth-and doesn't really have a purpose other than to answer that question.

Ah! Megumi Sama, Yuzuhara from X, Duo from Gundam Wing.

"But You're WRONG!" -to Kami-sama


[STATUS:] Delinquent and hacker-for-hire.

Tallish teenage boy (about 16-17 years), broad-shouldered but more wiry than muscular (built like an EVA mecha). Skin is dark tan, hair is spiky, dark green, and unkempt. His face is almost always scowling, but in the few times he ever smiles he looks very kind and friendly, almost downright angelic. On his abdomen are three large nasty-looking slash wounds that _never_ heal. Because of this, he constantly smells slightly of blood.

Prefers black clothes with some white. Most of the time he wears a black boy's high school uniform with the jacket unbuttoned, sleeves rolled up, and the shirt underneath untucked with the collar undone. Underneath everything he keeps his wounds tightly bandaged-wrapped.

Usually none, preferring to depend on his hand-to-hand and chi abilities. May occasionally wield short melee weapons such as jitte, knives or short-swords.

Intrusion Countermeasure Electronics (ie ICE: security systems, computer hacking, etc)

Technocery (combined tech, magic, and psionics)

Martial Arts (unknown style, special moves & techniques listed below)

Chemfets (nanoscopic technocerous machines scattered throughout his bloodstream, unknown origin and composition, granted powers listed below) [ATTITUDE:]
Lone-wolf type. Grim, laconic, and nearly unfazeable. Cynical about most sentient beings in general. Will not fight at all unless there is serious provocation. Admires self-control and restraint, but dislikes established rules and authority in general. A man with a high annoyance tolerance, but the times he does complain he can go on and on and on and on...


(to a friend or in a good mood:) "H'ya. How's tricks?"
(normal mood:) "..." and merely waves hand
(if he's in a bad mood:) "Who the hfil are you?"

{A CHALLENGE:} "Not interested."

{AN ATTACK:} (sighs) "Yare, yare..." (retaliates unmercifully) "Sugu raku ni shite yaru." ("I will soon end your pain.")

{A PASS:} "..." and shrugs

Kubo is a delinquent high school student from a parallel dimension. He has arrived to CAPOW due to a failed technocery experiment combined with a random demon summoning by Anne. He doesn't seem particularly eager to get back home, at least for now. Various clues (such as his friendship with B-Ko Daitokuji) hint that he possesses a high socioeconomic position linked to several worldwide conglomerates, contrary to what his everyday low-class lifestyle and demeanor may indicate.
