BACKGROUND: Cannibalism is the main niche with offsets of a light drugs trade, possibly being that their drug-induced hazes is what creates them to be cannibalistic. (E.G Bath salts). While I realise there have been many factions of quality and underlying darkness, I believe this idea to be raw, emotional and savagery at it's best. Dionysian lore tells of drunkenness, madness and wild ritual. They tell of cannibalism, voyeurism and omophagia. We would incorporate extreme body modification (horns) and dramatic mental health issues which I see a daily bout of in Hathian, so we could harness that too. Omophagia, or omophagy (from Greek ωμός "raw") is the eating of raw flesh. The Dionysiac diet of raw meat may be more properly attributed to Dionysus himself, rather than his followers—he received sacrifices of raw meat and was believed to consume them, but his followers did not share in the consumption. "The communicants rushed madly upon the sacrificial animal, tore it to pieces and ate it raw, believing that the god was resident in the offering...It was believed thus there took place an identification with the god himself, together with a participation in his substance and qualities." We aim to bring an image to the scene. A group of people who found somewhere to express themselves and no longer be shunned for a lifestyle that is in the history books. We'll be coming up with a system for it. The cannibals will be called the lachtára, and those who don't eat meat but share a love, or compassion for the lachtára will be like in history - Disciples to these cannibals. With a system like this, not only do we create mass amounts of RP for all the members who may join us, but we also create a society the HPD, Rejects, Revs, MC and other groups may shun, target, or fight against, work with... You name it, the possibility is endless and we already have a regime of some great RP'ers ready to take this to the next level.
UNIQUE: As stated above, there will be a light drugs trade led by drug-affiliated members which cut certain drugs with other certain chemicals, causing imbalances within the immune system causing them to freak out/pull at their own skin/slight increase in strength/adrenaline (but still able to be overpowered).
FLAW: So, the weakness is similar to addiction in terms of when you go without your drug of choice, you have withdrawal symptoms. In this case, lack of raw meat/blood means they feel weak and are less skilled in fighting, lacking in common sense and are unable to be focus due to migraines allowing them to be clumsy or turn to drink, possibly giving their identity as an Omophage away which means the other members will turn on them for 'Treason'.
POTENTIAL ENEMY: I really want as many people to be involved as possible so any other rivalries/alliances with gangs would be great as well as alliances within the HPD and HGH, possibly infiltrating into the law system via the Law Firm.
EXPERIENCE:Been RP'ing in CD for quite a few years now on many different characters which have allowed me to explore lots of different traits but have finally settled with my current one. Am also aware that there are alot of 'bad guys' in Hathian but I think cannibalism is something that sets them apart from all the other gangs but is relatable due to their use with drugs and their levels of violence. Have also researched Dionysian law and Omophagia to grip a better understanding of the names we will use. My character, in her relentless, thoughtless, and undisciplined pursuit of her self-serving agendas, she's quite willing to run over those whom she perceives as standing in her way. She’ll do whatever it takes to “win,” secure the dominant position, or get something that she wants. Still, for most of her aggressive traits, causing pain and injury to others is her primary objective. Triumph is her ultimate aim, even if someone has to get hurt in the process. Also have a managerial position at Lou's due to long hours of RP'ing and multiple fight scenes, as well as having on sim rivalries and currently the perpetrator of a murder investigation.
IDEAS:With open arms (and teeth) but I think Cannibalism is something that puts people on edge. You see a lot of people that have it in their limits which is completely fine and we will adhere to. I'm also aware that quite a few people dab in offsets of cannibalism already so in a way bringing the like-minded together, even if not directly affiliated. We aim to bring an image to the scene. A group of people who found somewhere to express themselves and no longer be shunned for a lifestyle that is in the history books.
OTHER:I really want as many people to be involved as possible so any other rivalries/alliances with gangs would be great as well as alliances within the HPD and HGH, possibly infiltrating into the law system via the Law Firm.
