Appearance: The hrímvargr are artificial wolves. Their bones are metal. Their faces are ceremonial wolf-masks with hinged jaws. Their “flesh” is a swirling wind with either the “white fur” of ice and snow in it or the “grey fur” of dank grey slush. Their torsos are huge and narrow iron bells—ceremonial, decorated, and clapper-less.

Strength: Exceptional
Agility: Exceptional
Endurance: Exceptional

Magic Ability: None

Other Abilities:

The hrímvargr are wolves, and this makes them predators - who hunt in packs. Like wolves they have fangs and claws and can chase down prey. But they're also of ice and snow, metal and sound, moved by ferocious spirit. They call on what permeates them to attack, which includes:

Gathering a hurricane of ice and snow around them, then unleashing it on a few targets;
Howling and calling down lightning or hail from the sky on their target;
“Unringing” their central bell, deafening everyone around or unleashing a wave of sonic force;
Shaping the swirls of red numbers that tend to appear when they take damage into machinery, then smashing someone with a fist of gears.

Origin: Sometimes during Winter, or when Christmas approaches—particularly if the weather is going to be harsh, or if something bad is going to happen—people will see the hrímvargr in the distance. They’ll show up on the roof of churches, on top of old buildings, or at the far end of an alley. By the time a brave soul gets close enough to interact with them, they are gone. They are seen alone, but they live and travel in packs, and do not always cross people.

Where do the hrímvargr come from? They could be church bells that did not ring for Christmas, and so turned into wolves; They could have been elementals of ice and snow that blew into the bells to prevent such ringing; Maybe a puppy left in Christmas-present boxes for seven days does not die, but transfigures into a hrímvargr and skulks off into the night; Or maybe they arose in the maze of the wooden folk from the frozen city of Nix, as an expression of the anti-Christmas sentiment in those creatures' hearts.

[04:32:08] Helligator: I can't make dragons in power armor like this

[19:50:12] francobull III: [...] why are you being all assive aggressive?

[23:32:37] Helligator: use the narrative as a means to convey an interesting story and cool conflicts with the openness you're allowed
[23:32:43] Helligator: not to CHEAT stories and conflicts

Race: Dogoo


Physical Attributes

Strength: Human

Agility: Human

Constitution: Human-Legendary

Other Abilities:
Combination: Dogoos on their own are weak, but if a swarm of them decide to combine together into a Giant Dogoo, which are substantially more durable. They don't really get any faster or stronger though.

Regeneration: Giant Dogoos are capable of regenerating large amounts of damage even in combat. It's not really that useful for them though since they're still really weak.

Equipment: None

Origin: Dogoos are mysterious beings that appeared in the Nexus from who knows where. They appear to be some sort of gelatinous cube that moved on its own and look like teardrops. They bounce around and appear to be cute, saying "Dogoooooo," but they're actually bad so it's ok to hurt them.

Weakness: Hit them until they die, it won't take long.

Name: Sleeping Slaves

Race: Puppets.

Age: Irrelevant

Height: 175 cm

Weight: 70 kg

Appearance: White men in white uniforms wearing white masks with two slanted black eyes on top of the other on their left. Alternatively the masks's palette can be swapped for black with white eyes.

Physical Attributes

Strength: Human

Agility: Human

Constitution: Exceptional

Other Abilities:

Automatons:The ability to be fucking stupid. Sleeping Slaves are autonomous puppets that follow basic instructions. They do not know fear, they do not know pain, the do not know anything. They are perfect. Sleeping Slaves can perform various tasks, but they are not independent outside of their specific function. You can easily walk in front of a builder and he will not even recognize you.

Core: If their body is a hollow puppet body, you could compare it to hardware or the brunt of a machine. In that case, the marble-like orbs in their chests that contain their soul data would act as the software, the brain of the machine that receives and interprets information before relaying a response. Breaking their arms and crushing their stomachs won't do any good, but you can easily destroy/replace/transfer/exchange Slaves between bodies by interacting with their core.

Teleport Link: The dolls have some magic mechanism in them that allows them to be instantly transported from point A to B. While the point A can be any variable, B is a constant that can be set with another teleport link.

Equipment: Depending on the situation, some construction/medical tools, some guns like rifles or pistols and basic apparel. All wear similar white clad uniforms and the exact same masks.

Some masks: They were made under a mask shop, so why not give them mask? They look classy and minimalistic, with a little touch of edge.

Instant coffee maker.

(only for some) Data-Link Star Network Relay: Some sleeping slaves are equipped with routers in their cores that act as hosts for networks, linking multiple dolls (usually 5-7 into one hive mind. This makes organizing team oriented tasks easier. Those who do wear black masks instead of white, to make them easier to tell from the others and so you know which ones to hit first.

Origin: Thanks to a pile of homunculi, raw materials, a bunch of dead gangsters, souls laying around, and a set up lab, fine gentleman Relius and polite citizen Vanguard worked on a little project. You see, with Vanguard's soul harvesting abilities and Relius's puppet making, one day, they asked themselves: "Hey, why don't we make some fodder to do our job for us lolol?"

And so they did.

Weakness: They are stupid fucking dolls that aren't that strong to begin with and have a pretty vulnerable cpu. They suck and you suck for even thinking you could lose against dumb machines. They don't into combat unless standing there as sentries, all they're good at is basic grunt work, construction and some patrolling/scouting.

Likes: Nothing.

Dislikes: Nothing.
