Background:
Project Unity: In the later years of Earth, the Moon was moving away at a drastic pace. Soon, Earth's tides were getting to uncontrollable, that humans had to do something. This something was moving the moon, back into place. The project consisted of installing 5 Vespene powered engines on sides of the moon to bring it back into its place from the 21st century era. They would get the gas from a large group of people from the Koprulu, considering Humanity had no where else to go in that sector seeing it was just a wasteland from all the wars at this point.

They had representatives of remaining factions of humanity come to show how humanity can unite once more to save their home. The ship they came on attracted mass amounts of Zerg due to the concentration of the precious gas. The Zerg, also attracted Protoss, seeing that they wanted to cleanse them. The factions land, and create outposts on the moon, to get ready for the operation, because this had just now became a defense mission for them. Of all the factions, the NR seemed to be the main force aside from the United Humanity Alliance.

After a few years had passed, the operation was ready to commence. The Protoss and Zerg had lost, and humanity would recuperate and thrive once more.
Or so they thought.
The thrusters were uncontrollably powerful. They had found out later that most of the Vespene had actually been Terrazine, and the ratio to Terrazine - Vespene was 10terrazine -1 grams of vespene gas.

The concentration of the Terrazine caused almost all personnel to go insane, and things had only gotten worse. They managed to turn off the engines, but most of the operators were ravaged by the Zerg or the insane humans, for the majority of the Protoss had decided the moon would destroy the coming infestation. They were wrong.

The impact was slowed just enough, that the moon instead, merged with earth, it is now like a tumor on the face of the Earth, gaining parts of the Earth's characteristics, but not naturally.

Biomes were together, and animal species were mixed. The impact zone had become a dark spot on the faces of the moon and Earth. This area has not been explored, and it should never be explored. They say that when things walk in there, they come out the other side twisted, and mutated...

There was also many ancient structures that were underground, and have been revealed from the moons new features. Teams who went inside never came out...

Many camps were destroyed, and after the years, the (Labeled: Sins) insane men had built camps, and even bases, or just took over the ones they had found. They destroyed any remaining humanity left on Earth and the Moon. (God knows how it is on the face of our home).

I, Doctor Yanato, write this report on the Project: Unity. As the biggest mistake in human history. To anyone who finds this log. Please know. There is no hope for our corrupted race. I will see you in hell.

-Doctor Roushi Yanato


The year is 5978. The Protoss and the Zerg have been dormant for centuries after the Tribes Conflict, the Epic Wars, and the Damnation Age. Humanity is "In deep crap" currently. All factions have collapsed, and resources are thin. This time has been entitled as the Dark Epoch. Very few planets are hospitable, colonies are hard to be sustained, and people live in lives that were previously beyond inhumane, but is now the standard. De-Evolution is an understatement.
As the Sins have become the majority of humanity left, the few who have their mild smidgens of sanity, and humanity, are all that is left for humanity. A small group of people, this group are descendants of once great peoples in the time of mankind's golden age. They can be humanities salvation, or mankind's damnation.

Description: Thin, stands around 5’ 8”. Little is known about appearance, as she remains in her suit all the time.
Suit has thin, slanted red eyes with no easily visible mouth or nose. Armor appears black or a very dark brown, lining the fore-arms, chest, and shins. No signs of personal symbols or a kill tally. Designed more for function over form.

These were the first words heard when Kristina, fourth clone of assassin Alexander Thalmus, was able to understand, and the one which comes closest to the original, with most of the other clones either dying early or finding life in a less deadly and less violent role. Trained from almost the moment she left the cloning tube, she prefers isolation and observation over working in large groups; however, she accepts any aid given, knowing that the original didn’t always work alone.

*OCELOT Gauntlets allow users to climb vertical surfaces and even remain stationary on a wall, or even leap from one wall to the other to climb. OCELOT Gauntlets also feature a built-in electric shock unit, modifiable at the discretion of the user.

>SneakMind<

Name: Donovan "Don" Iver

Build: Medium

Descendant: The legendary midnight vigilante Rowan Iver and his wife Lola Avaja.

Description: Donovan is 25 and stands at 6', with a build that is expected of a 25 year old man. He has black rustled hair and hazel eyes, and prefers to wear a black cloak that covers his body. Underneath it is a utility belt that holds several important items.

Donovan is sometimes dramatic, and shares Rowan Iver's love of heroism and justice. However, in this doomed age, even Donovan has had to come to accept the harsh realities of the world they lived in a bit more.

Starting Gear: Donovan prefers to rely on his psionics and cover for most protection, favoring speed. He wears a light bulletproof vest as well as some padding, and wears a flameproof black cloak that he can sometimes toss at his enemies to surprise them.

Donovan possesses a pair of submachine guns that can be wielded each with one hand and a pair of stun knuckles that emit up to millions of volts of electricity per punch, easily killing in one swipe.

He also has a utility belt that has 4 smoke grenades to create some confusion.

Skills: Donovan greatest strength is his fighting skills. Every martial-art he found "street-worthy" he picked up and mastered.

Donovan was gifted with Psionic powers from Lola Avaja who was a potential ghost, and although it not in the same league as the strongest psionics he possesses a form of psychokinesis that allows him to prevent gunfire for a quick instance, allowing him to get in close with his knuckle tasers.

Backstory: When his home city rioted in the face of what seemed like the end of the Earth, Rowan Iver, an accomplished engineer and martial artist, set out to fix the city himself. Drawing inspiration from his fictional childhood heroes, he donned a dark-colored costume and hunted criminals by night using his martial-arts prowess and his own inventions. Even generations later, people recognize the name of Rowan.

Donovan's upbringing was far more bleak, as in his time now humanity seems doomed for extinction, yet he grew up believing that if he could live up to the name of Rowan, he could save humanity.
