Name: Holly Ezhno
Age: 23
Description: Physically, almost nothing has changed about Holly over the past 5 years, yet she is dramatically different. Her blue eyes being the same as they always were, reveal patience, not icy indifference. Her once waistlength hair now falls nearly to her thighs, and is more often than not, now tied back in a lose braid. Her fashion sense has altered slightly. Rather than the tight black, low cut shirts and the dark blue jeans, Holly now sports sweatpants and shirts that are slightly too big for her, and while she has never tanned, her usually pale skin seems to be emanating a natural sort of glow for the past few weeks.

History: Holly was raised in a family with a free-spirited mother, and a strict military father. Her mother grew sick, however, and as a final parting gift, presented Holly a shard. Knowing nothing of it's power, Holly kept it close to her, just as her mother requested before her death.

Later on, Holly realized, it was the shard in her posession that drew her and Josiah together. That meeting in turn thrust her in the war of the shards.

After the war, Seifer tried to stay at the Marinae base with Holly, but he was too restless. While it was difficult in the beginning, Holly accepted Seifer's decision and busied herslf with other matters, one of them being moving in with her father, Henry Marina, the same man whom she ran away from and resented for so many years. After the war, Henry was severely injured and is confined to a wheelchair. Holly, newly pregnant and ignoring the fact that she didn't want to be alone anymore, decided that her father needed someone around just to take care of him.

Aurora User: Holly heard of this, but is almost positive she wouldn't become one. Her shard never became a part of her as much as it was an external weapon.

Name: Ni'ja.

Gender: Female.

Age: By her people's concept of time, she just turned 20. By the world's standards, she's still 19.

Description: Middle Eastern by appearance, Ni'ja has light brown skin, dark brown hair, and green eyes. In the RP, Ni'ja will not be adhering to Hijab--no chador or burqa. However, her timidness around foreigners still makes her feel a headscarf is necessary (doesn't want to be tempting infidels with her feminine wiles now, does she?).

She's small and slender at 5'2" and 110 lbs.

History: Taken in by a Sahara Desert-dwelling Bedouin tribe of nomads, Ni'ja as a child, was found wandering in the dark, alone and unprotected, in the desert when she came upon their encampment. The Bedouin are confused as to how a child could survive the blistering daytime heat without any provisions for a day much less the amount of time it probably took her to walk through the vast desert and into their camp. Glad to see her alive, though, she is quickly given food, water, and place to stay despite her unwillingness to explain where she'd come from or how she'd stumbled upon them.

The strange girl denies ever having a name (or parents) and is called Ni'ja, Arabic for "saved one."

It is suspected that Ni'ja was an escapee from a human-trafficking syndicate in north Africa (possibly Sudan) where she would have been smuggled somewhere else to be slave labor. Ni'ja speaks Arabic and has an ear for English, but she isn't quite fluent.

As the years progress, Ni'ja reaches the age of 20 by the Islamic lunar calendar and hasn't been chosen as someone's wife... yet.

Due to the Bedouin's tradition of arranged marriage, and her lack of parents to strike such a deal with a young man's parents at her birth, she's often been considered by some to be taboo. Rashid, however, doesn't think so. Having three wives and is allowed one more by common law, he has his eye on Ni'ja.

In an effort to prolong her fate of endlessly bearing children on top of being dealt the wrath of three women who'd be jealous toward her union with their husband, Ni'ja proclaims a desire to fulfill the fifth Islamic pillar of Hajj--pilgrimage to Mecca--and cannot be married or slept with until she sates the need and returns.

With her guardians' blessing, she sets off, escorted by a small group, toward the Red Sea where they'll take a ferry to Mecca.

Her group is marauded in Sudan. Just as a Janjaweed is about to attack her, (possibly capture her to rape her and pass her on to the next man, as is a common occurrence among Sudanese fighters) a bright flash erupts around Ni'ja and she finds herself in New York City on the roof of a high-rise building.

Ni'ja's wearing the same clothes as before, but she's alone. None of her belongings are with her and she absolutely NO CLUE where she is or how she got there.

She's seeking answers from any public official who can give them to her.

Aurora User: Ni'ja has no idea what you infidels are talking about.

EDIT: Fucking typos.

So we're waiting on two people. Once either one of them posts up, we'll get started.

Name: Davion Freeman

Gender: Male

Age: 34

Description: Davion is 6' 2", and 215 lbs of muscle, having some fat across his midsection over his stomach. Dressed as a priest of Suvoj, his black skin a direct contrast to the white robes, he carries around a stick with Suvoj writings on it. A club he uses to beat his foes beneath him.

History: Born and raised in the heart of Africa, began a shard user for his safety from the dozens of civil wars his country went through yearly. He killed many people, until he found god, and was converted to the Suvoj religion by none other than Leon Machina. A devout follower of Leon's way, having read all of the books Leon wrote, gaining great insight into the power of the shards that once were. Davion believes that Leon's word was powerful, and the true word of the Suvoj. He was not afraid to act, put his faith before himself, and more importantly, become a Martyr for the sake of Suvoj, and the whole world. Davion longs to be regarded as a hero, much like Leon is, the Saviors of the world.

Aurora User: Davion used his shards very much, but never relied on them. They were a part of him, but not the only part. He would be open to regaining their strength though.

Character Sheet:
Name: Icav Ribe
Age: 32

Description: 6'2" 195 lbs with a swimmers build, his short cropped blond hair and blue eyes make many thing he is augmented in some way. Rarely seen without his holsters carrying two modified Five-seveN. Typically attired in IFDF Generals Uniform or a full tactical loadout.

With the destruction of most of the shards and the formation of the IFDF, Icav was moved from Marinae special operations and escort to IFDF command staff. Placed in charge of SOTC (Special Operations Tactical Combat) he has been deployed on numerous ops tracking down holdover military forces and warlord militias. His men respect him for the simple fact that he never commands from a desk. A key member of the IFDF Command and Control his actions are frowned apon by most of IFDF High Command. His rash behavior and rather...Violent methods of solving problems are not something that is openly discussed but whispered around the halls of bases.

Aurora User: Misses the boost his shard gave him, but has always been one to rely on military technology and not something that he doesn't know how to take apart and put back together.
This isn't about you and your loud mouth,
This is about me and my fucking beard.

I've been thinking about War of the Shards and such, and I came up with an interesting idea: A What If universe where Josiah had never become involved. In the main story, Josiah is the unifying force that ends the war. How would the war have played out? Which friends would be enemies? I think it'd make an interesting RP.
