Since the dawning of human civilization, Mesopotamia, there have been Gods and Demons. Immortal, Impeccable, Untouchable forces of cosmic beauty and immoral savagery. Beings so great in stature, so irresolute that every plant, animal and man could do nothing more than quake in awe at such a visage. The golden era of deities had begun.
Slowly though, as the tides of time rolled and the wheel, the cart, the moat, and the lance were invented, humanity gradually became less dependent on the cosmic entities that presided in Heaven or dwelled in the Underworld. The demons never forgot. As timeless beings, yesterday is as 300 years' ago tomorrow is. So patiently they waited, they stewed over in Tartarus, bathed in the river of Styx. Explored the black depths of the Abyss, roamed in Abaddon. Despite the now lost reverence humans had for their mythical entities as they turned to their New Gods, humans still died. Souls of the twisted were condemned to spend the rest of their pitiful existence in the Underworld. Where those human souls ended up was a gamble, a spin on the wheel of fate. Some were whisked away and torn asunder by the hungry pit devils. Others were fugitive souls, traipsing the Underworld in fear of their lives. Yet others still joined up with different demonic factions, or were coerced too, aligning themselves under a particularly powerful Demon Lord in hopes of one day achieving that lofty status of an Archdemon.
You are a Demon Lord. There are differences all across the board, age, soul count, reputation, abilities, duties. Regardless of those differences, there is still something every Demon Lord has in common with another, and that is the dependence upon the souls of humans. It doesn't matter whether demons admit it or not, new souls are a crucial part of the life cycle in the Underworld. It affects the Demon Lords even more so than the rest of the demon populace. Without human souls, you will perish.
For thousands of years, the income of human souls has remained relatively stable. There are fluctuation from time to time but the fact that souls came was always constant. Until now. Beings from the Outer Planes, the Forsaken Beings older than time itself have come to reclaim Earth, jeopardizing all of demon kind. With pallid grey skin and their clammy four digit fingers, they lurch about the human streets on the surface. They have one advantage over that of the demons, the ability to flawlessly and masterfully shape change into a human being, or anything for that matter. They have no souls, but in a human form, it is very difficult to discern whether they are truly human or the aberrant creatures that have all of the Underworld ablaze.
Demons, despite their long jointed history with humans, have never been able to as skillfully traverse the surface world. Smaller demons could sometimes get away with it as could extremely powerful demons, but the more powerful the force, the harder it is to remain on the surface. Since the curse cast down upon them from the angels, whenever a demon takes another form, they have a painfully obvious trait that remains throughout all forms. The Forsaken have never had this problem, as they lost interest in Earth long before the era of Angels and Demons.
But now they have come back, and the soul count into Hell dwindles each day. There have been an alarming number of reports concerning the mysterious disappearances of humans on the surface. The Demon Lords quickly assembled a counsel and elected representatives to travel to the surface and investigate the business, as well as exterminate any of the extraterrestrial beings they find. The Forsaken aren't the only problem while traversing on the surface. While they are the major threat, there are also ruthless exorcists who probe the seven continents on the lookout for demons. While they normally aren't an issue, being mortal and all, you have found out that a lot of your power has been sapped. This is most likely due to the lack of souls which you need to survive, as the dark desires of the human heart fuel you. So far, they have only proven slightly dangerous in numbers, though you seem to be drained of more and more energy each day you spend on the surface. Nevertheless, you and your new companions are determined to drive out the Forsaken who have come to snatch away your domain.
~ No one Demon Lord may have the same duty or preside over the same thing
~ Character conflict and drama is encouraged
~ This goes without saying, but no omnipotent characters. There's a fine line between "Extremely Powerful" and "Over Powered"
~ Demons have one human form and one animal form they take while on the surface. This is because being in their true demon form is very straining when they aren't in the Underworld
~ Make sure to have a defining demon trait in your appearance.
~ While in their animal forms, they look like normal animals. Nothing too out of the blue
~ No player or demon number limit as of yet! Applications will most likely always be open!

~ Spiritual Mediumship: Ability to see and communicate with the dead
~ Precognition: Ability to perceive the future. It may be expressed in vague dreams while asleep, other times it can be clear and can occur at will. It may also be used as a form of "danger sense" to show her that she is being threatened and from what direction it is coming from.

Appearance: Reality takes the form of a large demonic-looking cat. She has coarse, white fur that fluffs out on her chest. She has large, ghostly white eyes with an extra pair of actual cat eyes above her main eyes. Her cat eyes are tilted vertically and mostly closed unless she is highly upset or angered and above those eyes are a specks of black fur in the shape of triangles. A pair of ram’s horns protrude out of her large ears that have black fur tufts at the end. Reality has seven digits on each of her paws that have large black claws that stick out. She also has a very long rat-like tail at least three times her size that would be where an actual cat’s tail would be. At the end of her tail, she holds an old brass bell with intricate designs that the tip of her tail hooks around the handle of the bell.
Personality: Usually calm and collected, Reality is naturally chill and nonchalant about a lot of things. She is patient but is very strict about deadlines and other things related to them. If a deadline is not met by a certain time, she becomes quickly angered and aggressive. She is a very low-key demon and is not well known about and she likes it that way, not wanting the attention or the drama. Reality doesn’t believe in hopes and dreams and she doesn’t have a set “goal” that she wishes to achieve because she doesn’t believe in those either. She is very pessimistic about a lot of things and she doesn’t “Go the extra mile” and she will often give up on many things especially if they aren’t going well; this can seem as if she is being lazy, but again, she won’t believe in something if the probability is low in succeeding. Reality has seen many people lose their hopes and dreams and she doesn’t want to experience the same thing.
Background: Reality was born since the beginning of human existence, ever since the first promise was broken or dream was lost. She herself is made out of these promises and dreams that were never made into reality. When she was born, her job has been to come to the humans who have heartbreak coming to them and take away the dreams that would never become a reality in the first place. She gives them a deadline to give it to her or else she comes back in her full demon form to forcefully take it away which would lead to insanity and death, along with memory loss and comas. She first appears in the dreams of those humans but will morph into reality over time. When she comes, there is always a white mist that appears that would signal her arrival and she looks like a normal cat with white fur and blue eyes.
If a human were to pass away because of her, it is her job to guide the lost soul into the Underworld using the bell that hangs off of her tail. She also guides the lost souls of others that she hasn’t killed but those who lost their way in life and died with regrets. She can often be found around grave yards, strengthening the myth that if a cat is seen jumping grave to grave, it is taking a soul. Reality doesn’t visit the Underworld often unless she’s dropping off souls. She travels around places on Earth, doing her job she’ll have until the moment humans stop existing.
Age You Appear As: 9
~ Precognition: Reality can see into the future but mostly by dreams or small scenes. She also can’t see too far into the future
~ Reality Warping: She can warp reality for others that she concentrates on.
~ Hovering: While being still, she can hover a few feet off the air, usually on her staff
~ Summoning: Reality can summon the spirits of the lost souls she’s collected throughout the years. She can’t summon too many at one time and this is her main way of fighting.
Weapon: She has a long staff that she uses. It has her brass bell on the end of it and she dings it a certain way to control the spirits how she wants. She can fight with the staff, but very rarely.
Appearance: Reality is a small child with wavy, silver-white hair. She has choppy, long and straight bangs that flop right above her very dark eyebrows. Her demon trait that she acquired is the large ghostly-white eyes of her demon form. They are very startling on her small and round face. She has pale skin and and a skinny frame with short limbs. She is around 4’3, average height for 9 year old girls. She wears a plain white, flimsy dress that has frills on the sleeves, around the collar, and at the bottom of the dress. She doesn’t wear shoes unless she’s forced to.
Personality: Basically the same as above except that she’s very unsatisfied with her appearance as a human.
Appearance: An adult white furred cat with blue eyes and seven digits on each foot
