An original RPG idea, please join.
There are creatures among us that look like us, talk like us, walk like us, act like us but aren't like us. They are called 'Mai'.The Mai once acted as defenders of the human race, first as guardians for Egyptian pharaohs. Descendants of the Egyptian cat-goddess Baset, the part-god, part-human Mai used their cat-like attributes to serve and advise humans. The Mai's role as protectors lasted until the 16th century B.C when they were defeated by the Ramesses. The daughter of Ramesses III fell in love with a Mai, but the pharaoh banned their nuptials, so they eloped. When the humans and Mai learned of the union, the Mai boy was apprehended and killed by the Egyptians, causing the divide between the two races to grow deeper. As the Third Intermediate Period of Egypt began, the Mai were shunned from society and an organization called The Order emerged. The Order, a group of human assassins, began hunting the half-god race until they were nearly extinct. The fight between the Mai and the Order forced the Mai into hiding and is said to have been so violent, it is supposedly the cause of some of the world's most famous and bloodiest wars.
The Mai are also mortal enemies of the Jackals, a race descended from the Egyptian jackal-god Anubis. The Jackals are described as being filthy and savage, as well as the dregs of society. Ironically, the Mai display the same racist attitudes towards Jackals as The Order display towards the Mai themselves. According to Alek, every ancient god has offspring but only those two were introduced.
The powers include:
-Enhanced strength, speed, and stamina
-Magnified reflexes and agility (allowing Mai to land on their feet after falling great distances)
-Increased healing and resistance to poison
-Heightened senses including hearing and smell
-Improved night vision
-(and for the rare Uniters) Nine lives and Empathy for the ones around him/her (ablility to detect and experience emotions around her. ex: a man is mourning over a lost sibling or parent, the untier will experience it if they come in contact of each other)
If Mai's kiss a human, the human either dies or falls ill. So its not a good idea for a Mai to have a relationship with a human. But it is possible! Also, some Mai's don't know they're Mai themselves until a certain age of which their instincts are shown (age: 16).
The Mai have now spread out worldwide, with Mai settlements in such places as New York, Ukraine, San Francisco, São Paulo, Russia, and Hong Kong. Folklore predicts a &quot;Uniter&quot;, a Mai born with nine lives, is the only one who will be able to end the Mai-Human war and restore balance between the two races.
You can be a Mai, (only mods may be Uniters), an enemy of Mai called 'The Order', a mortal enemy of the mai called Jackal (which I'm guessing is like a dog version), and/or a human.
-No powerplaying (this is not metrix! A bullet can not go through you!), trolling, spamming, harsh swearing (keep it low), romance needs to be appropriate enough for scratchers over the age of seven, and HAVE FUNN!!!!!!!!
