In the beginning, there were two domains- Utgard and Asgard.
Utgard was the land of the demons, who were once denizens of Asgard but were banished aeons ago.
Asgard is the domain of the gods and angels who serve them.
The two lands didn't interfere with eachother and there was peace... Untill the demons attacked. They overran Asgard and sent the denizens into panic. The gods, out of desperation, sacrificed themselves to create beings forbidden to tread this world unless during dire times.
The grim angels.
Black feathers blanketed the ground as these black-winged reapers entered the battle, their diviners striking fear into the enemies who tread before them. The sky turned dark and soon the air smelled of only two things:
The scent of burning metal and blood.
Newcomers, feel free to pop in at any time in the actual RP. Its up to you to catch up to where we are, though.
For this RP, you may want a bit of a brief knowledge on the Riviera; The Promised Land universe. Thankfully, wikipedia is your friend! Riviera: The Promised Land - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Oh yes, forgot to mention. This happens BEFORE the game's events. To be more precise, during Ragnarok.
The war is taking place mainly in Asgard, but some battles are fought in Utgard too.
Oh yes, the races in this RP fall in three categories: Demons, Sprites, and Angels.
The sprites are sort of like humans and generally friendly magical beings. They're similar to demons, but tend to stay neutral and wish to stay out of the affairs of the demons and gods. A large amount of them are enslaved by demons during the events of this RP.
The demons are pretty much teh guys trolling everyone here. They enslave sprites, pillage places, and troll gods. They tend to be more blood thirsty then sprites (but are quite similar to them appearance wise.. for the most part).
The Grim Angels are the guys counter trolling the demons, but they don't really like sprites all that much and most consider them to be no different then demons... They follow the wishes of the Gods.
There are also normal angels too, they're just kinda like... civilians pretty much.
here's some links which can help you out on the specifics:
shows the demon races and well bosses but we dont care about the bosses
character portraits of pretty much everyone.
Sprites can look just like humans, elves, or all teh crazy things starting at the old man's portrait to when the greyscale ones start.
There is no real limit too how many people can join in asides from what you would think is too many common sense wise.
Also, for this RP feel free to go into some romantic relationship if it's okayed with someone else. I don't really care if its hetero or homo.
You can also just reuse your old characters too, just somehow incorperate them into the RP's world (reincarnation, universe hopping, conveniently there...). Just be creative o/
for now, lets just kinda discuss who's gonna join and such I guess
More will be added in time
Hidden Village of the Sprites ~ Kyoai
Lyude - Village Elder
A strict, elderly sprite with a pair of thin horns which resemble branches adorned on his head, but sports a pair of rounded ears. He is quite passionate about the village, and only thinks of its well being.
He's xenophobic towards demons and angels.
His character is strict, biased towards sprites, yet knowledgeable and wise. He has a short temper, though.
Mira - Inn Keeper
A shy, quiet woman who takes care of the small (yet growing) inn. She's terrible with cooking so she has an assistant hired to cook the meals. She's easily flustered but will listen to what you have to say.
She has a pair of reddish wings on her back and her hair appears to be made up of feathers rather then actual hair. Her feet are talons (like a bird).
Her character is quiet, shy, yet caring.
Momo - Villager
A little girl around seven years old, she's more knowledgable then she appears to be and seems to have a good understanding about the events going on in the world. She still has a deep curiousity on things like a typical child. She looks just like a human, but is, of course, a sprite.
Her character is knowledgable and a bit snooty, yet curious and a tad eccentric.
Ariel - Inn Assistant
The one who cooks all the meals at the Inn. She's always in a rush and always frets over if her cooking is any good or not. She actually is a pretty good cook. Nervous and tends to overdo things, its obvious that this woman needs to stop and take a few deep breaths slowly.
Her character is nervous, oblivious to people around her (mainly focusing on her cooking and stuff), and worries over things a lot. She is Momo's older sister and looks fairly similar to her.
Barri - Bartender/Bar keeper
He owns the small bar. He also listens to people's problems, but unlike Mira he'll tell you his opinion on your problems, either you like it or not. He's skilled in brewing different wines and beer, and even has a few original creations of his own. Applecot wine(which he made/invented) is really popular in the village.
His character is extremely blunt, and tends to act like an *******, but he's really not that bad.
Kael - Village Healer
A young boy in his early teens. Despite his appearance, he's actually really skilled with using herbs and healing magic. He likes to learn about new herbs and is seen studying or out in the woods, collecting herbs. He's a young sprite who has long, pointed ears.
His character is introverted, curious, and seems to have a bit of formality to him.
The City Built on Water and Knowledge, Teyth
A childhood friend of Evis. She is quite a spirited person and gets irritated quite easily. She has a large knowledge of herbs and medicine which she learned from her mother. She also has experience with healing magic. She works part-time with her father at the famous Flooded Flagon inn/bar. She also makes medicine/drugs when requested by Evis.
She has green hair and eyes, a kind face and wears a long leather dress with a frilly white blouse underneath.
He is loud, boisterous and large. But he is a generally friendly guy. He runs the Flooded Flagon with his beloved daughter, Mia. He is also very fond of Evis, who he treats as if he was his own son. It seems as if he knew Evis' "grandfather"...
Unlike his wife and daughter, he has short orange hair and blue eyes. He is clean-shaven and wears a brown-ish t-shirt and blue pants. He is often seen with a rapier at his side.
Note:Sabrina Marina (Jack's wife and Mia's mother) died of poor health and a weak body around the age of 37, around the time Mia was still 11/12.
Both know of Evis' circumstances, but are close friends regardless. On his grandfather's death, Jack had offered to adopt Evis, but Evis refused. Knowing the occupation and character of Evis, both sides know that it's not an idea to get too attached to each other. Regardless, Evis visits them frequently to get medicines and drugs made for him.
Little Cottage in the Forest of Magic
age: Unknown, but it is known that he's over one thousand years old.
He is the one who owns the magical cottage, as well as its large collection of books stored iside.
Nobody in Utgard has seen any demons like him before (foxes with nine tails). People say he's a very rare and ancient species of fox demon, whereas others think he isn't even from this world to begin with. He is very proficient with all offensive magics (including the elements) as well as summoning, however he is terrible with support magic. He tends to throw in witty comments every now and then, and is very knowledgable about the world they live in. It's said he's even been to Asgard before too. He knows a lot about Akaiito, and seems to be close friends with him.
Everytime Kai comes over, he locks up all the booze... Though sometimes even when he does that, Kai manages to get into it still.
People call him Ludo for short.
The quiet and serene step daughter of Ludo. She often is the one who cleans around the house and watches over it while Ludo us gone on his travels. People sometimes say that she's not just nice, but out of it. Even after knowing Kai for most of her life, she tends to forget to lock up the booze...
She is actually a cross between demon and sprite, but introduces herself as a demon.
Name: Cecillia Gran
Appearance: Long, silky red hair that she wear's down to her waist. She wears a wide-brimmed witches hat with frills. She usually wears various normal dresses though with frilly parts added (imagine less flashy Victorian style). She's also quite pretty and has an innocent face, indeed she would have been the target of many men in Elendia if it wasn't for her step-brother. (BREASTS ARE AN AVERAGE C)
Personality: She's bubbly. Quite a naive person, she's very childish and clumsy. She's not very good at work and tends to rely on her step-brother a lot, but she always tries hard to do things herself. Likes cute things.
Backstory: Her parents were killed when she was 2, too young to even remember them. She was taken to Tetyth, where her grandfather offered to take care of her. Around that time, he had also taken in a young orphan boy, about a year older than her. The two were quite close, a real brother sister relationship. When her grandfather died, she was taken in by some relatives in Elendia, where she has lived up to now, but her brother was left out. That boy was Evis Cross.
Currently she lives in Elendia as a part-time doctor and herbalist, she looks up to Mia [-nee] for her experience in that field, and frequently exchanges letters with her whenever possible. But her real interest is magic. Even though Elendia is famous for it's anti-demon views, she frequently leaves the town to visit Ludovic for magic lessons and a chance to use the library.

Her eyes are like a BOTTOMLESS ABYSS. lol anyway her hair is really curly and she wears it in two pig tails (like candy candy). She dresses in an outfit that pretty much matches Grandison's. The difference is that instead of pants she wears a frilly dress with petticoats. Her boots are knee high. Also she has a huge white bow on her breast instead of the carvat of Grandison.

personality: Aika's partner in crime and lover, he does all sorts of robberies with Aika while wearing ridiculous disguises and somehow getting away from it all. Just as funloving as Aika, he is also known to be one of Kai's good drinking partners. He isn't as much of a alcoholic as he is, though.
backstory: As one of the cubi from the allianced families, he is also an assassin. His family isn't as powerful as the Kagamiyas though, but they are their loyal followers and have been for thousands of years. 'Nick' prefers to use rapiers and crossbows.
