The Mammon

Post by Odien on February 8th 2015, 12:16 pm


Maximilian Archibald



Basic Biography



Real Name: Maximilian Augustus Blackwell
Villain Name: Mammon
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Age:37
Gender: Male
Race: Businessman
Hair: Black
Eyes:Grey/Blue
Height:6’2”
Weight:168 lbs

 
The Looks
   

Spoiler:


 
The Legacy
   



History/Personality:
Love. Respect. Fear.   Are they not all the same thing?

For most people, the answer would be a resolute “No”. However, those few with real power in this world-not just being able to read minds or conjure flames like a parlor magician, but true might-know that the correct answer is yes; the three emotions are forever intertwined. One must love that which he respects, respect that which he fears, and fear that which he loves. It is the natural order.

In the late 2000’s, a man named Maximilian Blackwell rose to prominence in the business world. As he refused to take part in interviews, and there seemed to be no record of his existence prior to turning eighteen, nothing is known about the man’s past prior to arriving in the New York financial district. He came into the business with large sums of money already, and this would grow exponentially over the years. In what seemed a large string of coincidences, anyone who ever became involved with him either lost their company and was forced to file bankruptcy (the company would be taken in graciously by Maximilian) or would go on vacation and never return.

Maximilian’s company, Oberon Global, is quite legitimate in its dealings. However, it is obvious in the criminal underworld that the Mammon works with some very, very unsavory people. Some have gone so far as to accuse him of not being human. However, there has yet to be a drop of evidence suggesting these accusations possess any validity.

Blackwell has been noted for his seeming lack of emotion by those who work under him.


 
The Powers
   


Power One: Emotional Influence
Maximilian can sense the emotional state of those around him, and can alter it to varying degrees. The stronger the emotion, the easier it is to push it in one direction. The stronger the mind of the individual (in terms of fortitude, and not necessarily intelligence), the harder it would be to influence them. No one (excepting for permission-based player mechanics) is entirely impervious to this power, but in some people the emotions can only be encouraged, and not created entirely. When he cannot create an emotion in a person, he can certainly drag an old one up (He cannot make a person who has never known fear be suddenly petrified, but he could tweak their perception of reality to where they learn to fear what they once stood in awe of). Crowds are easier to push, and once the match has been struck, it is simple to burn the whole city down.

Basically he can control emotions. Limits are set in place, and it is a permission based power.

Power Two: Otherworld
Svartalfheim, Nav, Vyraj, Annwfyn, Elysium, the White Isle. Throughout human history, and perhaps before it, there have been tales of several Otherworlds across every culture and society, sometimes intertwined with the Earth, sometimes entirely separate from it. Mammon's realm, for which the true name is known by no ordinary men, is one such place. Maximilian hails from his world, where he alone holds the sphere of influence. Here, he controls the very makeup of the universe itself. Here, he reigns supreme. Here, he is God. Throughout the history of the Earth, several factors have led to Maximilian suffering a weakening of his abilities, unable to act as he once did. In his realm, however, he retains full control. Mammon can create and open portals to this world, and travel freely to it (RP Mechanic for teleportation, cannot be used for offensive combat purposes). Blackwell can also pull items and personnel from this world to the Earth, as it acts as both his natural home and his storehouse for many of his possessions, and those that serve under him.


Weakness One: Only "Human"
In addition to the above limitations, Maximilian is, for combat purposes, only human. His physique and reflexes are nothing special, and while he cannot be killed (for reasons previously discussed with staff and for plot BS "No death without permission"), he can sustain crippling damage.

Weakness Two: Otherworld
Mammon can bring anyone that he desires into his realm with him. However, he cannot force anyone to enter, without their consent. This does not necessarily require their knowkledge of providing consent; opening a door designated as an Entrance and walking through would count (players would be informed of this, obviously. It is up to them if their character enters). He also cannot control other people in this world, that do not originally hail from it. That is not to say he cannot use his powers against them, but they are free to resist and fight back, and he cannot directly make any alterations to their body or powers. In addition, the complete control that Mammon has while in his realm applies only there-none of those powers not explicitly listed on this application transfer over with him.

Roleplay Mechanic
Naturally,  it is up to me what permission based powers can impact Maximilian. I will be reasonable in using my discretion with these. However, due to Mammon's abilities and background/history, which will be revealed IC over time and not through the app, he cannot be affected by any mind-altering powers. Anyone who attempts to alter control his mind, emotions, or perception of reality will fail. This is merely the basis for a legitimate reasoning behind turning down permission-based mind altering powers, and I will discuss it with anyone whose character possesses such powers in advance of the thread.

Maximilian also has a knack for striking deals with people. In times past these may have consisted of a parchment signed in blood; for contemporary aesthetic, a handshake with verbal agreement or a typed letterhead may do. Both sides agree to the terms, with no hidden stipulations. If the other party should fail to keep up to the end of their bargain, certain consequences will be enacted (the size of which may vary). Many a businessman, eager to claim a piece of the world as their own, have found themselves imprisoned in Mammon's realm, serving out their side of the bargain one way or another.

Looks like all you need is the physical priority section, then you're good.

Ready for Review-Edited powers and fixed typos (Power, weakness, and RP mechanic addition aren't exactly advancements; this character has never been used, so I was modifying him before I started using him).
