    Daily Life with Night Creatures: A Look in the Organization

    Hey all. This thread will be, more or less, an anthology about the different members of the Night Creatures organization, and what their life is like, to some extent. Typically, there will be a story about what they'll be doing a particular day, and what their usual job is. In this way, I hope to provide a better understanding of some of the big dogs of the organization, though, it's unlikely whether or not they'll actually be used in any stories or such. Before each story, I'll provide a physical description of the character, as well as what outfits they prefer wearing. Though I doubt anybody will be using any of these characters for anything, it's still nice to have this around, in my opinion. That's all I have to say, so with that out of the way, let's get to this.

    Edit: So, I've decided to add abilities and equipment to the list as well. Again, I doubt they'll play any significant role in anybody's lives, just doing this for myself really. I'll also link any stories relating to a character here (ex: Nightshade stories).


    Nightshade - Leader of Night Creatures
    Appearance: Nightshade stands at roughly 6'3" (191 cm), weighing in at 215 lbs (97.5 kg). On the thinner side, his body appears to be quite lean, though defined to the point of being unnatural. Nightshade's skin is extremely pale, being near alabaster in complexion, with spidery black veins being visible beneath the surface if one were to examine him closely enough. His hair is snowy-white, a shade unobtainable from bleach. His hair is well maintained, kept in the style of Wild Waves. His hands are somewhat large, his fingers suprisingly thin and long. His knuckles, exposed, are filled with a chitinous black substance, protecting the bones. Matching this are his eyes, with no discernable difference between the pupil, iris, and sclera, if there is any. On the back of his neck, where it connects to base of his skull, there is a large scar in the shape of a cross, from a time long past. While Nightshade appears to be in his mid-to-late twenties, in actuality, he is considerably older. His body, however, is 32. His shoe size is 11.

    Nightshade prefers to wear suits. His preferred color is white, although he does have suits in grey, black, and red as well. All suits have black accents, and though he has several different styles, all his ties are black. He has no casualwear to speak of. He is a boxers man.

    Abilities: Nightshade possesses immense physical strength, surpassing that of fifty men. Due to his black blood, he's also incredibly durable, able to halt blades and bullets from reaching very far into his body. Due to an interaction with a certain entity, he's gained access to the element of Chaos. Though they don't particularly suit his tastes, they've provided him with the ability to shift and manipulate his features, as well as clothing. It's been particularly useful in keeping his clothes clean. His most potent and powerful abilities, however, lie in his ability to delve into and control minds. He is intrinsically linked into the human psyche, and as such, is able to read, manipulate, break, adjust, twist, and overall control a human or previously human entity's mind through prolonged eye contact. While he's able to do the same with other species, it takes a longer time; once he's done so, however, it is possible for him to gain access to the collective unconscious of that species, and hence gain the ability for complete dominance over their minds.

    Spoiler for A Day For Nightshade:


    Bastet - Night Creatures Mercenary
    Appearance: Bastet stands at 5'6" (168 cm) and weighs 124 lbs (56.25 kg). Her physique is extremely athletic, lending to her bearing a smaller frame, though it does give her highly refined muscles. Bastet's skin is smoky mocha in complexion, almost as if a fine layer of ash constantly coated her. Her hair, which is English Violet naturally, appears to be done up into a pixie cut with cat-ear like protrusions on the sides. Numerous faint scars line Bastet's body, though this is primarily the case on her arms and legs. Her three sizes are 34A-24-38 (75A-61-96.5). She wears size 8 shoes.

    Bastet exclusively wears kimonos. Though they may bear different designs, the style is always the same: long sleeves which go quite a bit past her hands, keeping them obscured at all times they're not in use, the kimono reaching just past her hips. Bastet also wears tabi, patterned after her kimono's pattern. Aside from her kimono and tabi, she wears very little in the way of clothing, though she is sure to wear silken lace panties on the few occasions someone lives to see up her skirt. Around her neck, hidden from view a good deal of the time, Bastet wears a chain with a lock on it. The reasons behind this are unknown, and the chain and lock are both dull silver with a golden leaf design all throughout it. The most unique part of Bastet's apparel, however, is her mask, which she never removes, and has kept her face hidden from view at all points. Pure white, it has four slits, two on each side where eyes would look out, a blood-red symbol of an eye between them, and a cat-like smile painted on carefully. Whenever her mask is removed, she covers her face in a blood mask until her mask can be retrieved; even if damaged, it will eventually repair. Nobody has seen Bastet's face and survived.

    Abilities/Equipment: Bastet is able to manipulate her blood for a certain distance outside of her body. Primarily, she uses her blood to form crystalline weaponry. As she can crystalize and liquify it at will, she'll often ingest drugs or poisons in order to get her blood into her targets, either through liquefying the weapon while it's in them, or simply mixing her blood into their food, drink or a product to be absorbed into them. A lesser used ability of Bastet's is her ability to "jack" the senses of others, as well as take over the minds of the weak willed or unconscious. This includes animals and other beasts; the reason Bastet doesn't much care for this ability is due to its disorienting nature which makes her assassinations annoying. Bastet carries very little equipment, as it would simply weigh her down. On her person, she carries her cell phone, two plasma blades with enough charge to last fifteen minutes each. She also carries a recharging EMP device capable of shutting down all electronic devices for two hundred meters around her.

    Grey Silverscale - Night Creatures Second-in-Command
    Appearance: Grey is 6'1" (186 cm) and weighs 285 lbs (129.27 kg). Grey's skin is chocolate brown in color, a stark contrast to his eyes and hair, which are platinum and ashen grey respectively. Built for combat, much of his physique is muscular, which, while not offering much in the way of flexibility, provides a thick layer of muscle for protection instead. There are many scars across Grey's body, with the focus appearing to be on his back, where there lies a deep x-shaped scar which reaches from the nape of his neck to the center of his back. Grey's hair is unkempt and he prefers it this way, as he doesn't give much care to appearances. Grey's teeth, despite often remaining in his human form, are sharpened to points, as though filled with canines. Grey very rarely smiles. Grey has a surprising lack of body hair despite his age. Because of his heritage, he appears a bit younger than he truly is, more often being mistaken for his early twenties rather than thirty as he is. On Grey's chest in front of his heart, there is a brand. It looked to be a representation of Ouroboros in an infinity symbol, a flame behind the serpentine dragon. Few have seen this brand, or even know of its existence.

    Whenever Grey brings forth his draconic abilities, his body grows more reptilian in nature, silver scales the same color as his eyes forming over his body. Unlike most cases of scales, all of Grey's are uniform in size and appearance, with the ones directly over his stomach being somewhat thinner and softer in comparison. Grey's nails become talon-like, his pupils go from rounded to slitted, and his tongue becomes forked, depending on what part of his anatomy is currently altered. Certain changes are only applicable when he fully transforms, such as his tail and his wings. His wings have a span of twelve feet each, giving a total wingspan of roughly twenty-four feet. His tail extends to fourteen feet, beginning at the base of his spine. When turning to his full draconic form, his muscle mass expands somewhat.

    Grey primarily wears armored clothing. His primary wear is darkened leathers with as little metal attachments possible. Though these are, to some extent, restrictive to his movement, they provide adequate protection and are comfortable. There are flaps built in to the back allowing is wings and tail to go through without issue.

    Abilities: Grey is able to shift his form to a more draconic one at will, as well as use abilities associated with dragons. This includes flight, enhanced senses, and fire-breathing.

    Just A Talk

    Spoiler for A Day For Grey:


    Blade the Forgotten Exile - Security Head of Night Creatures
    Appearance: Blade stands at 5'9" (175 cm) and weighs 200 lbs (90.72 kg). Blade's skin is pale, though has faint coloration as though he were tanned and the color began to fade. His eyes are the clearest green like sparkling emeralds. He always seems to have some sheen of dirt on his person, despite keeping rather clean overall. Blade appears to be in his early twenties, barely into adulthood, but the look in his eyes and severity of the calluses on his hands belie that this is not the case. Blade's hair is black with a slight brown tint to it, faint curls that reach around his head haphazardly, occasionally obscuring his eyes. Blade appears to be rather physically fit, but his musculature is not particularly defined. On his shoulder blade is a tattoo of a white wing tinted grey with the tips of the feathers colored black. Aside from the tattoo, Blade's skin is strangely free of imperfections.

    Blade's clothing tends to consist of baggy shirts and jeans that are equally loose-fitting. He often wears a black armband over his sleeve on his left bicep, and a necklace in the form of a silver star inlayed with a small opal surrounded by several other gemstones. His shoes are sneakers without laces, and on occasion, he'll wear a plain black and green scarf. In his right ear is a band earring that looks akin to a celtic band. It is a dull grey.

    At all times, Blade has his longsword on his person. The sword measures at 49 inches (125 cm), the blade measuring 36 inches (92 cm) and the handle 13 inches (33 cm). It weighs roughly 70 ounces (1.98 kg), and appears to be made out of a strange metal with dark and light swirls all throughout it. The guard curves up slightly at the ends, and is a faint bronze, while the pommel is plain and flat, able to be used for bashing if need be. The grip is wrapped in a black leather of superior quality. No matter what, the blade never seems to lose its edge, and to those keen on powers not quite of this world, the sword appears rather wicked indeed, emitting a consuming aura that devours those who dare face its master, or attempts to wield it without its consent.

    Abilities/Equipment: Though they've become limited due to his confinement, Blade still bears immense strength and magic-like capabilities. Stronger than most mortals, Blade excels as a swordsman. Through touch, he can thoroughly analyze organic and inorganic materials, and he can sense the "auras" of others around him. As an entity born of Order, he naturally contradicts Chaos, and as such can cancel out its effects in his presence, though the opposite is also true. Able to restore and heal with touch, Blade's most notable ability is his foresight, which seems to allow him to predict even the most unlikely of events and read his opponents' movements. Blade's longsword is able to drain the blood and energy of those who feel its bite, and can rend apart space as it slices, creating vacuums in the air surrounding Blade. One of its most unique traits is its ability to leave wounds only if Blade wills it, meaning that even if his weapon slices through someone and kills them, not a trace of this may be found if he doesn't wish it.

    Spoiler for A Day For Blade:


    Kasai - High Officer of Night Creatures
    Appearance: Kasai stands at 6' (182.88 cm) and weighs 225 lbs (102.06 kg). Kasai sports his black hair in a High and Spiky Cut in military fashion, as well as having a well-maintained and short beard. His eyes are typically grey with flecks of brown in them, though, when he relies on the Azure Wolf's power, they spark a bright blue like the flames he wields. Packed with muscle, Kasai keeps his body firm and in-shape at all times, leaning more towards lean muscle than raw muscle mass as his work often requires stamina over strength. Often, Kasai is said to not look his age, appearing more in his mid-twenties or so rather than his late thirties. Across his heart, he has a tattoo of a pale grey skull with a black bowie knife sticking from the side of it and a flag beneath reading "Suscipe Mortem, Honore et non Deficere." On his right arm he has a flame-wrapped flag bearing the names "Cinder" and "Ash." On the back of his neck at the base of his skull, there is a cross shaped scar.

    Kasai's typical attire consists of dark blue lower military fatigues and steel-toed boots, while he wears a sleeveless black muscle shirt. At all times, he carries a slightly stylized black and blue Glock 19 on his right hip with an extra magazine on his person, and a black bowie knife strapped to his left leg.

    The Azure Wolf, who has taken to being called "Hati," appears as a large black wolf with glowing blue eyes and grey fangs. Blue flames constantly surround its feet and pale blue smoke streams from its mouth. Often, the only ones who can see it are those who bear a "core," though some others have reported being able to see it. Though not with a gender or sex, Hati does use male pronouns on occasion. Hati alternatively appears as a flaming blue wolf head that floats beside Kasai (also not normally visible), and when he imbues himself into a weapon, it takes on his aesthetic properties. His preferred possession target is Kasai's bowie knife, though he has possessed Kasai himself before.

    Abilities/Equipment: Having no supernatural abilities himself, Kasai was bred to be superior human stock, and was trained to be as close to a perfect soldier as possible. His blue flames come from relying upon the Azure Wolf that resides within him. An aggressive type of daemonic beast, its flames burn both with and without oxygen, and can be freely manipulated. Because their relationship has improved, Kasai is able to manipulate the flames rather well, though he himself is unable to do more precise techniques such as manipulating heat instead of flames, or forming weapons or armors from the condensed flames. Hati is capable of possessing different weapons or even Kasai himself, though to do so it needs permission. It has a hard time possessing a fully conscious Kasai due to conflicting wills. On Kasai's person, he always carries a bowie knife strapped to his leg, and a beretta m9 on his hip, usually with at least one extra magazine.

    Spoiler for A Day for Kasai:


    Pika - Apprentice Night Creature
    Appearance: Pika stands at roughly 3' even (91.44 cm), and weighs 42 lbs (19.05 kg). Caucasian, she has freckles across her nose and shoulders, her black and purple hair reaching down to her knees. Whenever she's in a mood, she'll tie her hair into pigtails. She has bright orange eyes with flecks of red, and a scar under her left eye from a slash. Pika is flat chested, much to her eight year old annoyance, and has a light tan birthmark shaped like a beetle right below her belly button. Pika's left leg is a mechanical prosthetic, and is silver with black joints. She's grown entirely adept at using it. Pika is missing two of her front teeth, her upper left incisor and her lower right canine. Both were baby teeth.

    Pika's outfits often consist of sundresses and spandex shorts. She doesn't much like shoes, but if forced to wear them, she'll wear some plain white or black slip ons. She has a silver locket that she wears around her neck that she always keeps on her no matter what. It bears a symbol of a flower on it.

    Pika's summoned bowie knife is simple in design. Jet black, the wide blade measures 8" (20.32 cm), and the full weapon measures at 13" (33.02 cm) total. The handle for the blade is a matching black, with silver details along it. The grip is fitted to match her hand, and there are large serrations on the blade. Pika's summoned cleaver blade is similarly jet black, the blade measuring 10" (25.4 cm), measuring overall at 15" (38.1 cm). Shaped like a combat cleaver, it ends in a dull edge rather than a point, and weighs a bit more than her bowie. Pika's summoned knuckle dusters are extremely simple, being matte black. They've no special properties or designs, and fit her hands perfectly.

    Abilities: Pika can summon one of three weapons: a bowie knife, a combat cleaver, or a pair of knuckledusters. When summoning a weapon, the weapon remains for three minutes before dissipating, and she has to wait five minutes to try again. Due to the random nature of her summoning ability, she is unable to choose what she summons, though she has an equal chance of summoning the bowie or cleaver, and very low chances of summoning the knuckledusters. The bowie knife has the ability to kill any male of a species if it is able to draw life essence (typically blood) from three different spots before vanishing, at which point the counter resets. The cleaver is able to kill any female of a species if it is able to draw life essence (again, typically blood) from three different spots before vanishing, at which point the counter resets. The knuckledusters, by far her most potent weapon, are able to kill any living entity if they make solid contact in the same spot three times, so long as it is an uncovered part of the body. Places struck by the knuckleduster receive a marking akin to a flower blooming. Like the other weapons, if the weapons disappear before death can be attained, then the counter resets.

    Spoiler for A Day for Pika:


    Ezekiel Romano DeReynold - Night Creatures Spec Op Enforcer
    Appearance: Ezekiel stands at roughly 5'6" (167.64 cm), though he typically has a slouch, and he weighs 128 lbs (58.06 kg). He has light brown skin that is thoroughly marked with fading signs of torture and abuse, as well as severe scarring along his back surrounding his spinal cord. Not particularly muscled, Zeke leans on the lean side, almost to the point of being unhealthily thin. Despite this, he does show signs of being in good health. His hair is a messy mop of black, purple and green. Zeke has slightly larger than average hands and feet, which he tries to keep well manicured. Across the bridge of his nose is an old jagged scar. Zeke's eyes are typically chestnut, but if Xenorork takes control, his eyes become gold and a silver star appears above the left; if Cruznik takes control, then they become silver, and a gold star appears above his right eye.

    Zeke wears plain, nondescript clothing that fits loosely around him. They're usually styled after clothes one might see in an asylum. Why he asks for clothes like this, few really know.

    Abilities: Zeke, through assistance from Nightshade and Blade, has somewhat tamed the beasts within him. He can now draw upon the strength of Xeno or Cruz without giving them total control over his body; this however, is not perfect, and sustained time drawing either's power increases their chances of taking control of his body again. When drawing Xeno's power, Zeke is able to fire bolts of plasma-like energy from his hands, as well as form an AoE burst around himself. He can charge either attack to increase its overall strength, as well as control how the shots are fired in order to create different effects. When drawing Cruz's power, Zeke forms burning gauntlets about his hands and forearms that appear black and crimson with claw-like fingers. These gauntlets not only boost his strength, but also his punching speed. They serve as a suitable defensive measure as well.

    Spoiler for A Day for Ezekiel:


    Bek - Night Creatures Spec Op Enforcer
    Appearance: Bek stands at 5'4" (162.56 cm) and weighs a solid 180 lbs (81.65 kg). His skin is deeply tanned, as though kissed by the sun, and under normal conditions would imply island heritage. With muscles defined past what is capable by humans, he appears to have no fat deposits visible at all. Totally hairless aside from bush of glossy black curls with a dyed strand of pink in the front, his eyebrows and his long monkey-like tail, Bek's skin appears to be without flaws. Strangely enough, despite enjoying meat, Bek has no canines. He does have impeccable oral hygiene nonetheless. It's also curious that Bek's fingernails and toenails never seem to grow. Bek's left eye is curious, as the sclera and pupil are matching black, but the iris is colored in sections with four rectangles in the cardinal directions being gold, while the remaining sections of his iris are deep blue. When in deep thought, his eye seems to spin. Bek's right eye is actually a violet crystal shaped like an eye, which he keeps hidden from sight. On the back of Bek's left hand are multiple circle tattoos with strange symbols within them aside from the central circle, and across his back is what appears to be a barcode-like tattoo. Though rarely visible, Bek's blood is purple.

    Bek wears a black skin-tight spandex-like underwear with white lines about it that seem to heat with energy. Above this, he wears a loose silk shirt with similar symbols to his tattoos sewn in around his sleeves, and very loose black shorts held up by a segmented metal belt that doesn't appear to come off. His typical shoes resemble tabis, though the soles are considerably thicker. Around his neck is a smoky-grey crystal necklace Bek boasts is unbreakable, as well as two dog tags. Strapped to Bek's left arm and his legs are carry packs, three in total, where he carries around different supplies.

    Abilities/Equipment: Bek possesses specialized psychokinesis, allowing him to create a size-changing staff or special panels to stand on/leap from. With his staff, he can expand it for miles upon miles, though the further it stretches, the more it draws upon his stamina. The panels he creates are pale blue in nature and unable to be interacted with by any aside from Bek, and which he can create special "effects" with such as sticking in place or boosting forward in a different direction. Bek, under times of duress, is able to concentrate his psychokinetic abilities to form a spectral helm and armor, which allows him to telekinetically wield ten staffs at once around himself, as well as gives him an absolute awareness of all entities within a given space around himself. Bek's Crystal Eye, if viewed, causes immense mental strain for the viewer, and is more than capable of breaking the mind of the weaker willed. The longer it is viewed, the more likely the damage is to become permanent. For equipment, Bek carries bombs, kunai, and charms. In his left arm pack, he carries four kunai and twenty charms (five for barriers, five for purification, five for exorcisms and five for sealing). In his left leg pack, he carries twenty nonlethal bombs, ten smoke bombs with disorienting effects and ten firework bombs. In his right leg pack, he carries twenty more volatile bombs, ten powerful cherry bombs and ten "zap" bombs. How these bombs are formed, nobody but Bek knows for sure.

    Spoiler for A Day for Bek:


    Magnolia Shade - Flower of the Night Creatures
    Appearance: Magnolia is an elegant young lady, typically standing at 4'2" (127 cm), and usually weighing 88 lbs (39.92 kg). Magnolia's ivory skin radiates with health, and whenever she blushes, it appears purple. Her ebony hair trails down her shoulders and back like black vines. Having no markings on her skin, Magnolia has a strange crown-like protrusion on her head made of bone and branches, with flowers blooming from it. Magnolia's eyes are a beautiful deep violet in color, and seem to sparkle in light. Not particularly curvy, she does still exude a feminine charm. Depending on her mood or what's on her mind, Magnolia may sometimes bloom flowers from her hair.

    Magnolia, being influenced heavily by Bastet, enjoys wearing flowery dresses in similar style to Bastet's kimonos (because Nightshade refuses to let her own clothing similar to Bastet's). Wearing simple colors, her dresses will often have watercolor flower patterns on them, though on occasion she wears animal print dresses. She doesn't care for shoes, nor underwear, so she doesn't wear any unless forced to by Nightshade, in which case she'll wear some spanx.

    Abilities: Magnolia can be viewed as a petri dish of all life on the planet. This allows her to freely manipulate her body to gain the traits of any species, animal, insect, plant, even viruses and bacteria, as well as gain the traits of other species through any ingestion of their dna. Similarly, she can spawn any living entity within her either sexually or asexually depending on its reproductive procedures, and in a highly shortened period of time as well as manipulating the traits of her children freely within her. In addition to being able to take on the traits of different living beings, Magnolia is also able to shift her sex, as well as her age, looks, etc, and as she can take on traits, Magnolia is also able to create things such as poison and venoms. On a darker side, when in her close proximity or in direct contact with her, Magnolia is able to slowly destroy the vital functions of organisms, even to the point of complete and total degeneration (for this reason there are never any dangerous bacteria or viruses in her presence). For this reason, she may be viewed as both potential salvation or extinction of life, as she can heal those in her presence just as easily. Her other, less often needed ability is high-speed regeneration, which may be due to the myriad of species within her. Magnolia is able to survive purely on light and water, though she can survive in vacuums as well for periods of time. Typically, if she would be without necessary nutrients for a long enough period, she can enter into a hibernation-like state in which she seals herself within a nigh-impenetrable shell like that of a seed or nut.
