Entertainment, Media, Pop Culture

(What characters are public figures (Celebrated Heroes? Infamous Villains, politicians etc.). How are they generally perceived by the world.)

  • Portrait is a high-profile artist
  • Mercury's an indie actor and high fashion model
  • Closure & Clara Mass, the former owners of Zeraz Industries, are now TV personalities
  • Nerx is actually a famous hollywood cannibal, in a manner how some serial killer rose to prominence (like how some ladies love ted bundy after his arrest). His good personality can give hybristophilia (bonnie and clyde syndrome) to people, so it is not surprising that he gets fan mails and marriage proposals.
  • Claire Swanepoel (Duchess) is a Victoria's Secret model
  • Charmix is a fashion model and entertainer.
  • Despair is a published poet who writes under the pseudonym Desirèe. Known for her critically acclaimed first novel Wisps in the Dark, in spite of the poor sells: Below 200 copies. Critics commented: "visionary", "unique", "a lyrical re-revolution of the written word"

Business, Marketing & Specializations

  • Cain owns an equipment store called Cain's Armory Shack
  • Premonition runs Oracular Incororated, a large corporation.
  • The Psyentist is a Psychiatrist specializing in treatment of super humans
  • Cassidy Lockhart-Starks is the CEO of Starks Enterprises.

Societal Disposition

(How does the world generally perceive the characters? Do they hate mutants, the aliens(Sha), do they praise them...)

  • Earth has mixed feelings of the Keresh species, that has been hovering over Earth.
  • The population in general do know of Heliopolis's existence (seeing as how it's a number of islands hovering above the Atlantic), but is generally unaware of its connection to the Xantroan Empire (let alone that the empire exists). Neither is the public aware of the fact that Izaiah (formerly The Wanderer) is descended from the Xantroans through his father.
    Related to this, some conspiracy theorists believe that aliens have visited Egypt in the ancient past, and they are correct, as the Xantroans (and their less benevolent counterparts, the Arzacians) did exactly that. However, contrary to some of these conspiracy theories, the majority of pyramids were, in fact, constructed by humans.
  • Humanity is more or less ignorant of the Symaarium Imperium

Important NPCs

(Is there a go-to fashion designer who makes costumes for heroes and villains?)

  • Director Jeremiah Morales & Deputy Director Tanya Marie run the government organization, Sector Eleven, that eliminates future superhuman threats.
  • In The Last Billy Shock is a reporter who seeks out several superhumans for interviews to shed a light on how they see the world. So far he has interviewed Kurrent, Despair and most of former Veritas. Several other inquiries are still impending.

@.Mistress Redhead.: I think the cannon thread is larger in scale as it says the overall ruler of so-and-so, and this is more downsized and says what each different RP'ers job or position in society is.
