You are a member of an Organization known as the Omega Initiative, a group of human supremacists with a deep seated love of Terran unity and hate of all things Protoss and Zerg, including Terrans who would work with them, such as Raynor and technically Kerrigan. This deep seeded hatred began when a small research team and their escort first encountered the Protoss and Zerg while traveling through a previously unexplored region of the Koprulu Sector. They sent a small diplomatic team to attempt to start a peaceful discussion when the Zerg attacked. Fearing that the Terrans would be infested, they cut them down while killing the Zerg. The survivors, who’d been watching via video feed, were appalled at the unneeded slaughter of their comrades. When they returned to Confederate space, they were locked in war with the Kel-Morian Combine and, indirectly, Umoja, and had no time for the ramblings of a research team who’d been marked as MIA. Thus was born the Omega Initiative.
You are a Phantom, an elite Psionic warrior who's mind and body has been trained and augmented to shatter any defense an opponent has, be it mentally or physically, and kill them without mercy or second thought. The Omega Initiative's home base is on the ice world Borin just outside known space, to Terran, Protoss, and Zerg a like. It was chosen because of it’s constant snow storms that would hide the main compound, or what was exposed of it above ground. The rest is built beneath the ground to help keep it undetected by it’s enemies.
You were born in this installation as a third generation Phantom, your parents being second generation and theirs first generation. Psionic power runs through your family’s blood like a river runs through a valley, and you’re the most powerful generation yet. However, despite all your great power, you’re also the most unstable. Each use of your abilities brings you a step closer to one of two horrible fates. The first of these two is a plunge into insanity, turning on your comrades and attacking anything that gets close, your mind no longer able to tell the difference between friend and foe, reality and illusion. However, you can be saved and many are. Rare is the case where an insane Phantom is beyond help, though they are never truly the same.
However, the second fate, known as Resonating, is permanent and nearly unstoppable once it begins. First your psionic energy builds up to intolerable levels for your body, slowly undoing the fabric of your existence before it reaches lethal levels. From there, your body implodes, giving off first a resonating sound, then leaving a Psionic resonance that will forever mark where you died. This second fate is rare, but not uncommon in third generations. Many of your brothers and sisters have already met this fate. It is not wished upon any of our brave Phantoms.
Age: (No younger than 20, no older than 28)
Psionic Specialty: (Think highly offensive with this. None of the usual telepathic, empathic, and cloaking BS. You’re warriors, not Ghosts.)
Weapons: (Ranged is optional, melee is required)
Armor Appearance: (Nothing common, like HES or Spectre armor. These guys are NOT run of the mill.)
Training History: (So, usually there’s a back story, but not in this case. Provide what kind of threat you’re strongest against and the training you went through for that strength.)
Right, so for the Training History section, you can face off against anything Terran, Protoss, or Zerg you can think of, but keep in mind that when you start training, at about age four, it’s botlings, robotic Zerglings, and Zealbots, robotic Zealots. From there, it becomes living specimens of any thing you can think of, including Ghosts, Spectres, Ultralisks, Broodlords, High Templar, which we will be running on lore for, meaning they have their psi blades, and Dark Templar. Have fun with the Training History. If you think of something that I’ve never seen before, give me a description of armor and armament and I’ll put it on a word doc and save it for later on.
None Omega Initiative App:
Psionics: (If you go with a psionic.)
I realize that Racial Supremacy isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so this is for people who want to play from the other side of the fence. The Affiliation is to allow a little flexibility. Maybe you’re one of Umoja’s shadow guards, trying to infiltrate the Omega Initiative and find out their plans. Maybe you’re a Ghost out to prevent their leaders from mobilizing. Maybe you’re at each other’s throats when you notice a strange Psionic in strange armor watching you fight each other before blasting you both through a wall. Get imaginative. I hope most of you will play both sides on this, but you don’t have to.
