Lore


Demons


There are three types of demons. The types are determined by the location of creation, and each can have subgroups. The classic type of demon is created in Hell, but there are two other ways that demons can be created: some are born as the result of sin happening in a concentrated area on Earth, and others are angels that have fallen from Heaven. One known subgroup of demon is the seductive branch - the succubi and incubi. They are demons created solely in Hell.

Demons are able to change their forms at will, but the one thing they cannot do is take on the form of a living person. Since murder is a bit difficult to hide, demons just possess people. The only way to get rid of a possession is via an exorcism.

Exorcisms have no affect on a demon not possessing a person. There are other methods to getting rid of demons - holy water burns them, and the correct type of gun can also do the trick. Sometimes prayer bothers the lower level demons, but higher level ones tend to laugh it off. Though it does no physical harm to a demon, saying "Christo" in their presence will make them reveal their completely black demonic eyes.

Angels


Angels are harmed by unholy water. No one is quite sure what unholy water is, but there are many theories on how to create. Some involve taking liquid of some sort from a demon. Others involve cursing water by invoking the holy water spell backwards. A few even suggest that holy water that has been witness to an unholy act will be desecrated. Whatever it is, it has the same effect that holy water has on demons.

Character Templates


The templates are listed in the spoiler. Please delete anything in the parentheses. That information is there to help you create your character. You can have as many characters as you want. If you do go that route, my one request is that they all travel together.

Your character can be a human, demon or some other supernatural entity. It's up to you! I'm pretty much down for anything. If you're unsure about something, you can ask me.

Spoiler! :
Code: Select all

[b]Gender:[/b] (Nonbinary and transgender characters are cool with me! Just remember to include what pronouns they prefer.)

Hello! I'm Sae. Since I'm the one running this storybook, please ask me any questions you have. I'll do my best to answer them. This storybook was inspired in part by Supernatural, but has no ties to its plot or characters. Because this storybook relies heavily on what the characters in it are like, we'll have some sort of planning session once we've either created our character profiles or decided what they're like. In the meantime, just claim a spot in the storybook and start working on your character.

Here's the WriterFeedPad for this storybook.

And here's the invite for the Discord server.

I can't wait to do this storybook with all of you!

Hello, yes, I'd like to join this storybook. Because ghosts are cool and I love ghosts.

Welcome to the storybook, @SirenCymbaline and @GodsHatesShane! I put you both down for places in the storybook, so you're all set.

For those not in the Discord server, I've posted what we've discussed up in the lore section. If you have any questions about how any of it works, please feel free to ask me!

I say Wolf, for all wolves are not of the same sort; there is one kind with an amenable disposition – neither noisy, nor hateful, nor angry, but tame, obliging and gentle, following the young maids in the streets, even into their homes. Alas! Who does not know that these gentle wolves are of all such creatures the most dangerous!
— Charles Perrault
