P R E M I S E 》
A comet arrived ten years ago. Humanity attempted to destroy it but failed. However, the celestial body assumed an orbit around the planet as a new satellite in addition to three moons. The comet was close enough to constantly bombard the world with debris. The thing acted as a sentient being, as it slowed and increased its velocity at will. The rocks that fell onto the planet were infected with hostile life that began to spread.

The United Defense Force (UDF) was created as a response to the invasion. The war with the alien lifeforms was unlike anything the world had seen. New strategies and intelligence were required. Military resources of various nations were directed to the United Defense Force. Several divisions and specialized groups emerged in the coming years in order to adapt to the threat.

The infection caused by debris from the comet was a type of fungus. Spores and insects assumed presence in infected areas of the bombardment. People came to call this infection the Stigma, because it mutated wildlife and humans alike. Infected beings turned into alien lifeforms if they did not die. The infection also attracted interest from various corporations that invested in weapons manufacturing. Unmarked military forces have been seen extracting samples and capturing infected people all around the world.

The presence of this threat caused a mass migration of Spirits. These are entities of energy that exist in all things in the world. People who already had an affinity for spirit possession became hosts to even more of them. These individuals are known as Aeon. They are able to express the collective power of spirits as Magic. The initial strategy of the UDF was to distribute Aeons evenly across its military forces, but the dent in the enemy was marginal. An idea for a special task force consisting of only Aeons emerged. The Special Warfare and Reconnaissance Group were created to meet the needs of the UDF where ordinary measures could not.

The Special Warfare and Reconnaissance Group has seen two iterations since its birth and has now reached its third edition. A legendary Aeon has recently gone dark and cannot be reached. The UDF fears that this asset has been compromised by the Voice. A new team of Aeons is to be gathered and recover the asset at any cost. You will portray a character in this group.

Nice and to the point, clear cut backstory. I'll run your character image through photoshop for size and filters when I'm home again. Check your text for spelling, though. After we've done these things, we can put your sheet up in the character tab. You are still fast, as always.

Edit: You could add a few lines about Aaron's reputation as an Aeon. This is what everyone else will know your character by, if they haven't met before.

@Prosaic
Awesome.

Great. Here's your character image. Put it together with the sheet in the character tab: i.imgur.com/GBPZXMw.png

@FollowthePath
Looks great! I don't have much nitpicking to do. I was on the fence about the levitation, but why not. It might as well be a technique. I'm just going to remind you of the timeline. The comet arrived ten years ago, which would put your character at 16 years old at the time. Your Chronicle is vague enough to fit with any scenario here, but right now it seems like your character was going to become an Aeon even without the comet event, which is totally fine. Am I right in this? I'm just curious. Here is your character image for scale: i.imgur.com/3ynKZf0.png . Put it in the character tab with your character sheet. Was the code for the character sheet difficult to copy? I can fix it for you, if you want.

@Martian
Man, I recognized the very first part of that theme song like crazy. It took me a while to place it, but it's heavily used in the Jason Bourne movies. Great nostalgia.

So, this world is a fictional world. Usually, I write a whole bunch of lore for each area of a map that I include, but I didn't for this iteration. The only thing I'd ask you to do is to replace all the 'actual' world places such as San Fransisco with a fictional name. You can make these names up. Do this for all places and that University.

Also keep in mind the timeline. The comet arrived when your character was 13. I think your chronicle makes sense in terms of timeline, but I'll just put the reminder here, anyway.

Other than that, it's great! I've edited your picture for the character tab: i.imgur.com/7iT0HiE.png .

@Krash
Awesome. I think the timeline is a bit wonky here. I understand that it's easy to miss, though. The comet/Stigma arrived 10 years ago, which would put your character at 26 at the time. I think you have to edit your Chronicle for this sake. Think about it and make the edits that you want, and then I'll look at it again. This is my fault for not making it more clear in the Premise text.

Also, this world is fictional. So, think about a name to replace "Crete" with. It can be a similar place in terms of geography/environment, but it should be fictional nonetheless.

@Siber
Absolutely there is room! Welcome.

I totally spaced on the code but I fixed it! I can always remove the levitation if necessary, no biggie. By saying her mother didn't notice her powers until almost adulthood, the idea I had was that she may have had some inkling of powers before age 16, but when the comet hit, the really noticeable powers manifested. Gonna post the fixed cs in the tab :)

Ah my apologies! I completely whiffed on the time of the comet and I thought this was an 'alternate Earth' kind of thing not a completely unique setting. That will make it more entertaining to generate cultural backgrounds. The edits are made :)

... it's literally the first line of the OP. That's just embarrassing lol

So I also didn't realize that this was supposed to be a fully original world. So now Liam is from the city of Red Heights, his mom is from the nation of Nihon, while his father is of Moriadine descent. I'm assuming that he is from the west coast of whatever the main country is. As for his age in relation to the comet, I was aware that he would of been 13 at the time, just about to start high school. So I've edited the sheet in the previous post, please let me know if anything requires changing. Also Extreme Ways is an awesome song that I discovered through the Jason Bourne movies.
