Got fed up with putting this off for so long, so I finally buckled down and got these bios finished. These are rough drafts, of course, so as always Coryn, feel free to make any necessary edits.

Character Bios
Fortis Scriptor

Fortis is a three hundred year old knowledge seeker who’s soul is attached to a skeletal body with blue flames for eyes. Due to his yearning for knowing everything there is to the world, his curiosity led him to the path of learning  to become immortal, which landed him in his current form. Now spending his days as MR’s resident recluse, he often prefers stowing himself away in a dark corner somewhere reading a book or typing away on his personal laptop.

In order to prevent others of knowing his real appearance, Fortis covers himself in many layers of dark clothing. His typical outfit consists of a black suit and a hooded cloak, along with black, full length leather gloves, a black scarf that covers the majority of his face, and pair of sunglasses to hide his flaming irises. While this may sound extremely uncomfortable to many, for Fortis, his attire is necessary to exist peacefully in general society.

Fortis’ voice is akin to that of a ghost, and often speaks politely at all times. He often feels depressed because of his inability as a skeleton to experience things only a human could (Like getting a girlfriend for one). His depression is partially why he prefers to stay to himself, however he is pretty friendly and nice to those he interacts with and will eventually open up once he feels better acquainted with them.

As far as abilities are concerned, Fortis is an experienced weapons master who plays host to numerous guns and swords at his disposal. His current arsenal includes a Gladius (He keeps this under his suit), a Scutum shield, a Katana, a glock 17 suppressed pistol , and a M4A1 carbine. Since it’s impossible to carry all of these weapons all at one time, his choice of weaponry is dependent on the situation.

Greentrap

Greentrap is a raider with a frog-like appearance and traits. Having a rather ambiguous gender  that’s a little hard to pinpoint, many raiders debate whether Greentrap is actually male or female, and will often address her/him with whatever they feel comfortable with, since Greentrap doesn’t seem to mind it too much. (Author’s Note: Greentrap pretty much said that his/her character can be either or, which is why I’m leaving it open. However, for the sake of some consistency, I’ll be referring to Greentrap as a she for the rest of this bio)

Greentrap pretty much mirrors Asui Tsuyu from Boku no Hero, all the while still having her own distinct differences of course. For starters, she is built much like a male, but still has a rather feminine looking face. She doesn’t have a set outfit she likes to wear on the regular, and will pretty much wear whatever she’s feeling at the moment.

Being a frog, Greentrap regularly has a hard time understanding humans, which pretty much lands her on the more awkward side of the social spectrum. She doesn’t have a thinking voice, and will pretty much say everything on her mind with little to no filter. On top of her aloofness, she is a very observant frog who prefers to watch others interact rather than actively engage. She enjoys relaxing at public parks and ponds, and has an obsession with cookies.

While she is not much of a powerhouse when it comes to combat, Greentrap true talents shine in her ability to remain extremely agile and evasive on the field of battle. Her slippery movements makes it nearly impossible to keep up with her, making her much more suitable in the role of a scout.

Eukocar

Eukocar is an itallian raider with a big heart and a cheery disposition that never seems to change regardless of the situation. He is a very nice guy who often spends his time socializing in the MR Pub. Eukocar has ginger colored hair and is often seen dressed in his unique blue and white striped sailor uniform, with his trusted rapier strapped on the side of his waist. While he’s not well versed in combat, Eukocar is extremely intelligent and uses his wit to outsmart his opponents and capitalize on their mistakes, which makes him more of a strategist than a fighter.


Filia

Filia is a npc character with a very mysterious air about her to say the least. She is a young girl (Presumably around the age of ten) with long silver hair and gray colored eyes. She likes to wear dresses, (usually white ones) and usually walks around barefoot, adding onto the list of things that makes her weird and mysterious. She is very formal and polite, and will often address people as “Mister” or “Miss” when speaking to them. Not much is known about Filia outside of what’s been stated above. However, Hasith and Corycaly seem to know some interesting bits about her that they are unwilling to share for some reason. Hasith in particular seems to be extremely wary of Filia, and prefers to keep her under close watch. This strange behavior of Hasith’s has been noticed by a few select raiders, particularly Fro, who Hasith assigned to watch over her in his stead. Fro is generally both confused and concerned by Hasith’s decisions and possible motives behind them, and personally feels that Filia is nothing more than an innocent young girl.

Despite being only a young girl, Filia, upon joining The Fighter’s Division, has demonstrated that she can be a quick study when it comes to understanding the basics of combat. She was able to mimic  every technique Coach Fro has taught her to near perfection, and can very well hold her own in a good sparring bout. While this would make her a prodigy of some sort, being able to adapt so quickly to the flow of combat despite having no previous combat experience is still rather strange for a girl of her age, and a good case could be made that this also adds on to the list of things that makes her so mysterious.

The Observer

The Observer is an old man that resides alone in some unknown area of The Dark Net. His exact age is unknown, but given his extremely frail frame, it would be of no surprise if he was hundreds of years old. The old man has a hermit look going on about him, wearing a dark green robe with an outline of gold on the edges and a gold ouroboros sewn on the back of it, and brown trousers that are cut off at the ankles. He his bald for the most part, with the only remnant of hair being the gray hair on the sides of his head that flow down to the back of his neck. His eyes are always closed, however, whether it be due to a disability or just a habit, he is perfectly able to get a sense of his surroundings despite them being shut, leading to the possibility of The Observer having some otherworldly sensory perception.

Not much known is about The Observer other than the fact that he has close ties with Fronomenal, and that he operates a rather shady mercenary business in the Dark Net. From what little has been revealed since his introduction into the canon, he appears to have a vast knowledge of not only the Dark Net, but the regular Net as well. However, this is all speculation, for this possibility has not been directly stated or confirmed in actual canon.

Coach Fro (Formerly known as Fronomenal)

Fro is MR’s resident drifter and Kool-aid aficionado. Known for his afro and the “afro magic that accompanies it, Fro has been regarded by many of his peers as one unique and strange raider. He is the owner and head coach of the MR Fighters Division, and has been labeled “The Gravedigger” by other raiders due to his reputation to find and dig up the forgotten parts of MR city. Spending the majority of his time outside of MR and in the endless expanse that is the Net, Fro is rarely seen around MR on a consistent basis. But when he is, one will no doubt either find him in the pub having a glass of Pub tan’s signature orange Kool-aid or atop on one of the skyscrapers in the city, gazing about at the sky in deep thought.

Much like his rival Lego, Fro has a rather large afro, and a hair pick is usually seen sticking out at it’s peak. Unlike Lego, however, he has a much lighter skin complexion with brown eyes to match. Having long disposed of his patterned black and white leather jacket, Fro now wears a black, silk bomber jacket and  occasionally sports a black scarf around his neck. As for pants, Fro has yet to abandon his love for wearing khakis, black ones in particular. However, his trend for wearing only sneakers has seemingly gone out of style, for he is now more often seen wearing black combat boots. Around his waist is a purple katana with a golden guard and black hilt, concealed in a standard black scabbard. However, for whatever strange reason, Fro is rather reluctant to idea of actually utilizing the sword in actual combat, and has yet to have been seen wielding it so.

Fro is somewhat of a loner and a introvert, and as such is seen more often than not alone. This is mostly due to a tragic past that involves betrayal, backstabbing and the whole nine, but even still, when approached, Fro displays a very friendly and comedic personality to those he interacts with. He’s extremely laid back, sometimes outright nonchalant, and is very understanding and supportive to those he cares about.  However, hidden beneath this demeanor is a more violent and extremely aggressive side of Fro that he tries his best to keep under wrap. Luckily for his peers, pissed off Fro has yet to reveal himself, and Fro prefers to keep it that way.

It can be argued that Fro is unrivaled in many areas of head to head combat. His afro magic allows him manipulate the physical properties of his hair in many unique and quirky ways. For starters, his strands can transform into any physical object he desires, with the amount of hair strands used in the creation determining the object’s size and durability. Possibilities include but are not limited to: Weapons, clones, hair armies filled with different looking creatures, an entire city and much much more. On top of this, Fro can convert  his hair into energy and use more energy based attacks, however, he doesn’t seem to fall back on this ability too much. Additionally, his afro can be used as a storage space where he can physical store a seemingly infinite amount of objects in. And let’s not  forget that he can summon hair tendrils from not only his afro, but from anywhere there is hair on his body. While all of this may sound like a lot, Fro’s real power is not actually his afro magic. The real meat and potatoes of his abilities lies in his “power of imitation” ability, in which he can steal the powers and abilities of another person via stealing a strand of their hair. Of course, there are many obvious upsides to possessing an ability like this, but surprisingly there are drawbacks, two of them to be precise. Firstly, Fro is limited to copying one power at a time, and secondly, Fro cannot use his afro magic while copying another person’s powers. Needless to say at this point, Fro is pretty damn OP, and even he himself has admitted it on occasion.

Wait, I just got added to the list in August? Huh.
Thanks for all the hard work, loremasters. I'll be sure to poke my nose through all that stuff eventually. I'll certainly have more time than ever to read over the lore. Those breaks at work should be sufficient.

Yeah, had quite the backlog to cut through. Unfortunately I didn't get the timeline updated yet, but at least now there is a complete record of what needs doing.

Random idea, Coryn (And totally unnecessary)

An official wiki page for MR Canon would be kinda cool to see. Probably would be a pain to start up and actually write for since it would be potentially time consuming, but it's a fun project idea nonetheless.

No idea on how to start a wiki page, by the way.

I wouldn't be opposed to helping out with that, but I also have no idea how to make them. I can see it in my head though. Stories separated by Arcs and authors, as well as type of content, e.g. adventure, action, horror, and the what, one romance MRverse story of mine? Essentially what I'm getting at here is that the tag system would be immensely helpful for navigating the tangled mess of things.

Yeah definitely. Since this is my idea I would spearhead this thing as the main writer and get it started by figuring out how to actually start a wiki page. Mahlua, if you're actually willing to help, I can see you as an editor of sorts. You can probably give input on page structure and things of that nature as well.

Of course, I think we all got enough projects on our own hands as it is, if you catch my drift. An official start on something like this would come at a much later date. Still though, it wouldn't hurt for me to get an early start on this. Hella research inbound.

Well, there would certainly be a lot of work involved in just getting it working, and there's the questions of hosting, access, etc.

To be honest with y'all, I'm just not sure it's entirely needed? I mean it sounds nice in theory, but it does just ring of trying to be flashy to me. Can we honestly say doing all that work would be any better than just, I don't know, spending an afternoon creating a reference index?

I'd be happy with a reference index just as much. I suppose I just like the ideas of the clicking and tags, but that can even be done with a Google Doc, as long as the formatting doesn't lend itself to confusion.

It's a cool idea, but I think it's not complicated enough to warrant a wiki at this stage, especially given how well sorted it already is on the Google Drive.
But it would be good for sorting out the characters details and images all into one place, along with the stories they appear in.
You can give it a shot and see how easy/difficult it is to run and maintain. It would certainly be useful for keeping track of/displaying other MR things as well, such as the Anthologies, Competitions, and the VN while I'm at it. But again, lots of work for maybe not much return.

I think we can definitely explore some options with the Google docs yet. Again, a well put together index would be excellent. And as stated a but ago, part of the guide rework will basically be rewriting most of the entries. I think that would be a good place to start for getting things set into an index structure.

Just a basic add would be a list of stories characters are featured in. That way anyone looking for a specific character can go "oh, they were in just this story? I guess I can just skip straight to reading that one instead of trawling through the whole catalog."

And on a similar concept, story stats would be useful in determining for people what might be a good time investment. If they see a story is howeve many words long and has an estimated read time of whatever, they may be more like to say "sure, I can fit some MR canon into my day"

it would be nice to have that backwards compatible as well, so each story lists the characters, and each character lists the stories.
for people writing it would certainly be good to go through all a character's appearances, to get a better idea of how to portray them.

as someone who is unhealthily obsessed with numbers, I think thats a good idea on the story stats.

maybe a contents page of sorts, to skim the whole lot if you are looking for something (so just title, author(s), date etc), and a link to go to the more information section on the document.

Yeah, like I say, I think this could all be combined into an index/file structure of some sort.

Really, the first step is going to be rereading all of the canon and taking close notes.

If you'd like to get this off the ground Suuper, it would also be an excellent excuse to read the canon  ;)

Having a double reason to do something is a good idea. I am certainly interested, although there's only so far I can stretch myself. I'll have a think if I want to do it and let you know.
Since we are at it, shall the stories be collated into individual files? I think half the reason I don't read the stories is because it's hard to read large amounts of text on the MR formatting.
(at this rate I'm going to end up printing and binding my own Canon book)

Well, that's a hard problem to fix. It's why a double space a lot of my stories, but honestly it's in hasith's hands. We're just historians here.
