Chatterbox: Inkwell

Apocalyptic Mutant RP!

Some of y’all remember this, right? I edited it a bit. We’re starting over, clean slate, etc. Feel free to use your old characters if you want to. New people are very welcome to join. And without further ado, here’s your introduction. 




A science lab exploded.


Four scientists were killed in the explosion, and the remaining three found that numerous chemicals had spilled into a container and somehow survived the explosion. Upon testing the mixture, they identified the chemicals and recreated it. The scientists tried to find out what the solution did by testing it on a rat, but nothing happened. They weren't sure what to do with the chemicals, but then one of them had an idea:

What would happen if they mixed animal DNA with the chemicals?

They mixed lizard DNA--that being what was on hand right then--with their chemical solution, but before they could test it on the rat, it splashed back onto two of the scientists. They immediately mutated into strange, lizardlike creatures. Still vaguely humanoid, they had rough scaly skin, small sharp teeth, hooked claws, and tails. The remaining scientist, instead of being terrified, was fascinated by the mutation. Unfortunately, he was very greedy, and instead of sharing his discovery with others, he killed the mutant scientists, and kept the secret to himself. Over the next few years, the lone scientist experimented with his chemicals, testing them on human victims instead of animals, and becoming ever greedier and more twisted in the process. Eventually, for no specific reason, he created a huge amount of his mutation chemical, and combined it with DNA from hundreds of animals.





The apocalypse.


The lone scientist, having killed hundreds of animals for their DNA, created an enormous bomb, filled with enough mutation chemicals to spread across the entire continent. When he set it off, he was killed in the initial explosion, but thousands of people were mutated across North America. The chemicals somehow seeped into the ocean, and over the years, the mutation spread over the entire planet. 





The wasteland.


For three years now, the world has been a barren wasteland, only the strongest and the cleverest surviving, searching for the few oases remaining in the endless deserts. For it's all deserts now, whether or not it’s hot or cold. The endless search for water has driven many mad, adding to the dangers. But now, a strange sickness is spreading, traveling from person to person at an alarming, almost impossible rate. Symptoms include unusual exhastion, hunger and thirstiness, and sometimes nausea. The illness is caused by traces of the mutation chemicals remaining in the water, and the only cure lies in the minerals of the oasis waters. To save the mutants, a select few mutants with strange and unique abilities must find each other, travel to one of the oases, and find the cure, it’s mineral-dense waters. These mutants have never met each other however, and the hardship they have encountered has hardened them, to the point of hostility rising to impossible heights. They must overcome their misgivings and travel the wasteland, dodging insane mutants and sickness, to reach their goal. But, if they catch the sickness, they will slowly weaken, and eventually they will die.



You can have a maximum of three characters, and a maximum of three powers/abilities. There are also some animal/animal mutants, with no trace of human DNA in them. These are often deadly, to be avoided, unless you somehow tame one.


Here's the charrie sheet:

Name: Vesper Velasco

Age: 26

Gender: Genderfaun (form of genderfluid that never includes feminine genders), he/they

Mutation: American Crow

Weapons: His mind, daggers/knives, poison. Nothing heavy or slow.

Personality: Free-spirited, reckless, creative, a little bit of a trickster. Very intelligent, can be a little morbid/insensitive at times. A very strange person, difficult to understand.

Appearance: Thin, tall. Their eyes are a very dark color, with no whites. Their hair is black and made up partially of crow feathers. Dark speckles and blotches are all across their pale skin. Their hands have some grey scales on them, and his fingernails are very dark in color. Usually wears at least a little make-up, and dresses in unusually fancy clothing for an apocalypse.

Special Powers/Abilities: Extremely intelligent, extremely good vision, extremely good memory--not only is it photographic, he also never forgets any sound/voice/noise he hears.

Background: Vesper was born in the American Southwest, and he lived with his two moms for most of his life. When he turned eighteen, he went to college for a degree in English. When he finished college, he moved back to his hometown--which was one of the first places affected by the mutation chemical. The majority of the people in his town turned into bird-mutants. They formed their own settlement once the apocalypse began, and were doing pretty well--until the disease began. Vesper was elected to search for a cure before the rest of the inhabitants of the town fell ill.

Other: Open to shipping with anyone around his age!


Name: Grey

Age: 24

Gender: Non-binary, they/them/theirs or xe/xem/xers 

Mutation: Mackenzie Valley wolf (aka, Alaskan timber wolf/ Canadian timber wolf)

Weapons: Firearms and two-handed swords.

Personality: Quiet, though not cold. Mature, serious, good listener. Not book-smart, but street-smart. Enjoys people even if they don't talk to them. Very sweet, a parental figure.

Appearance: Average height, strong and muscular though it's not very noticable. Large brown, wolf-like eyes. A thin layer of fur covers their body, but their medium dark skin can still be seen through it. They have curly hair that has as many shades as a wolf's pelt. Their ears are pointed, and they have sharp claws instead of nails, as well as a wolf's tail. They usually wear armor of some kind.

Special Powers/Abilities: They can howl like a wolf, have enhanced senses, and they have far better stamina than a normal human.

Backrgound: They were born in Alaska, but began a nomadic lifestyle after the apocalypse started. They've been travelling around, and helping people of all kinds. Also, they lost their memory during the mutation process, and took up the name "Grey". 

Other: Open to shipping with anyone.


The third one is one of my original charries from the rp.

Name: Nikolas Iosif

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Mutation: Raccoon

Weapon(s): Many small throwing knives

Personality: Seems fairly mellow, but is usually muttering some sarcastic remark under his breath. He has a dark sense of human. Charismatic, but untrusting. Extremely intelligent.

Appearance: Rather short, with very pale skin. His hair is dark and shaved on the sides. It's tall in the center, like a mane, and usually pulled back in a very short ponytail. His eyes are very small and dark. He has many ear piercings. His nails are sharp and he has very thin, long fingers. He wears black fingerless gloves. He doesn't wear shoes, because his feet are like paws. They have long black claws and are covered in grey fur. His ears are pointed, and covered in grey fur. He looks as if he is wearing eyeliner, but those are actually markings. He has a small raccoon tail.

Special Powers/ Abilities: Freakishly intelligent, has an amazing sense of hearing and smell,night vision. Also extremely agile.

Background: He won't tell anyone, not even his closest friends. However, I will say that his parents were killed when he was very young and he spent much of his life living on his own.

Other: He doesn't make friends easily, nor does he want to. However, he is open to shipping, with other guys only.

This looks super duper cool! It is fine for me to join even though I wasn't in the one before, right? 

Name: Genevive "Gen (JEN)" Insurbond

Age: 10

Gender: female, she/her

Mutation: A guina! No, I didn't mean guinea pig. A guina is a wild cat, also known as a kodkod or a Chilean cat. Specifically, Gen is a melanistic guina. Being melanistic means all her features are darkened. Her spots are barely visible, and her fur is black.

Weapon(S): Two short, sharp knives and several throwing knives

Personality: Shy most of the time, but she can be outgoing when she needs to be. She is somewhat of a loner, but she hungers for human attention.

Appearance: She isn't super humanoid at all. She is stunted and small, and the area on her face where a mask fits (best reference I can think of) is elongated. She has mostly cat-like features, but she kept her opposable thumbs. Her hind feet are small black paws, and her hands look like paws but, as I mentioned, she still has opposable thumbs. Her eyes are a dark, beautiful, glossy shade of brownish-black, with just a tint of her previous eye color, green. Her nose is like a cat's, and she wears a simple olive-green shift dress over her furry body. She can walk either upright or on all fours.

Special powers/abilities: She chirps, just like the guina's characteristic sound. She is a great, silent hunter, and she climbs trees exceptionally well. 

Background(optional): She grew up in a rainforest village before the apocalypse. When the bomb blew up when she was 7, she and many others from her (very superstitious) village were cast out for being mutants, and all Gen's traveling companions died of the disease. She decided to go looking for a cure ecause she hoped it would earn her a home.

Other: A real guina travels with her. It isn't melanistic, but it (he, actually) is a kitten, with fluffy fur and paws too big for his body. He usually stuns people with his cuteness. Not literally. But he is adorable.

Oops! I almost forgot. Here's my charries and then whoever wants to start can do so. 

Name: Silvia

Age: 16

Gender: female

Mutation: black widow spider

Weapon(S): none, she feels no need to carry them 

Personality: extremely skittish and hostile, but if you earn her trust, she will defend you even at the cost of her own life. Seems older than she is, as she (usually) acts pretty mature. She speaks with a lispy hiss, thanks to her lack of normal human teeth.

Appearance: humanoid, she has smooth black skin except for a scarlet hourglass-shaped mark between her shoulder blades. She only has two eyes, but they are completely black, without a hint of another color. She has venomous fangs instead of teeth. She has very short, dark brown, almost black hair, and wears a black long sleeved leotard and no shoes. The palms of her hands and the soles of her feet are very rough, to grip surfaces and make it easier to climb, and there is a small barb on the inside of each of her wrists. 

Special powers/abilities: She is able to spin webbing from under the barbs on her wrists, it looks a bit like the way Spider-Man does it, and she can shapeshift into a black widow spider.

Background(optional): Don't ask.

Other: no shipping please.

Special powers/abilities: able to shape shift into a large brown wolf, and has increased speed, strength, and endurance.

Name: Logan

Age: 20

Gender: male

Mutation: timber wolf

Weapon(S): a seven-foot metal staff strapped to his back, and a dagger hidden in his boot

Okay, I'll start. YOU CAN STILL JOIN, NOW THAT WE'VE STARTED. FYI, we'll be in an in-between desert, cold at night but pretty blazing sun and heat during the day, regardless of whether or not that's actually realistic. There are a few mesas around with cliffs that aren't too steep to climb, and nearby a scraggly bit of woods that's mostly dead trees. 


A small black spider skitters over a rock, slowly making its way along the bottom of a low cliff. Me. I crawl along, not really doing anything, simply crawling. I shift into human form and grasp the rock face, rough hands and feet helping me cling to the stones. I scramble upwards, and as i reach the top, i stop, and drop back over the side so that only my ebony eyes show over the edge. Two wolves, one brown-furred, and one gray with a silver sheen, are standing there.



In wolf form, i stand atop a cliff by Karen, watching the sunset. Suddenly there's a scraping sound near the edge of the cliff. Karen jerks away. 
"Did you hear that?" she whines. 
I growl back. "Yeah, i heard it." Karen turns to the source of the sound, and before i can see what it is, she jerks forwards and swipes with her paw, sending whatever it was back down the cliff. We both shapeshift back to human, and peer over the edge. There's a black-skinned, spidery, something hanging from some sort of sticky thread.

Devan's POV

"Bro, we've been walkin' FOREVER! Can we stop now?" I asked my brother, Collins.

"No, Devan, we can't! Crystal, how's it goin' on the thing you do?" He asked Crystal.

"Patience, dude, patience! These things take time. Gimme a few days, and I'll have this ready." Crystal said, as we heard a skitterin' sound.

We peered over the cliff rocks, and saw a couple of wolves, and one of 'em batted a paw at somethin' on the cliff ledge.

We ran over there, and saw a spider thing on the edge, hangin' on a thread of... spider silk?
