WHAT ARE HYBRID CHARACTERS?
» Hybrids, as far as Platinum Hearts is concerned, is when you have a character that is a combination of two to three races. So, if you intend to make one of these characters, you are going to want to read the information below. This is because they are a complicated character to make and take strong understanding of our site in order to make.
»Birthed: It is possible to be born as a hybrid when you have two parents of different races. For example, the most common instance of this happening are cases where human and demon couples are able to produce offspring that can take traits from both parents. As this is the most common sort of hybrid.
» Experiment: In other cases, it is possible through experimentation that hybrid characters can be made. This mostly deals with scientific based characters performing experiments on others which take genetic material from dual races in order to make a new hybrid. However, in this instance, it will often have to be approved by a staff member in order to make sure things are not abused.
» Alternative: Since the two above are the most common methods, we do leave the option for creators to come up with their own twist in order to make hybrid characters. If you can think of a plausible way that your character can achieve their hybrid mixture, then staff will review it and determine if it is legitimate or not.
HOW TO MAKE HYBRID CHARACTERS
Making Hybrid Character is a relatively complex task. The reason being is because you are essentially intermixing two different race specs and templates together. Therefore, I do NOT recommend that those new to PH make them for their first character as you need to have a decent grasp on the site. » Balancing Racial Perks:
You need to balance the racial advantages and disadvantages they have. Since there is no one standard for them, we expect you to have the common sense enough to know not to go overboard with these characters. Do not just give them all of the benefits of both races without some sort of drawback or equalizer. » Skill Sheet:
In some cases, you can have multiple skill sheets, but this will be at the judgement of the staff member reviewing your Hybrid Character. » Releases:
Since hybrids do not have a set base, it is up to YOU to create their customized release forms. As, they do not often have access to the racial transformations due to their infused nature. There may be some cases where this slides if one side is more dominant than the other, but this will be done at the judgement of staff. » The Template Itself:
You will most likely need to incorporate different sections from the Hybrid Character's races to be added into their profile. For instance, if you make a human/demon character, you will most likely need to take various portions of the human and demon templates in order to make the character. Of course, we'll also allow for customization to make it easier on you, but it's for this reason why I do not recommend beginners start on these characters as it is a complicated matter.
be a Hybrid Template created at a later date.Placement After Approval:
Most of the time, Hybrid Characters will be placed in this board below:http://www.platinumhearts.net/f395-other-accepted-characters

Hey so remember how I got really dehydrated that one day when you started streaming? Turns out it was pretty serious and I needed some medical attention, hence me being gone for the rest of the weekend; to that end, I'm asking for a bit of an extension on this challenge, as I'll probably still be offline for a few more days.
Also forgot to actually state my pledge. I'm trying to get more work done on my Sugi, and also intend to start and finish my vizard. That's pretty much it.

SLAVE OR LIBERATION [CHAPTER 1-3]
CHAPTER 1: CONCEPTION OF LIU
This portion of Liu's history takes place from the year 2146 to the year 2154
What were the early years like? Well, they were a rather peaceful time for the little demon child. Being born and raised in a small village within the outlands of the Central Demon Nation, Liu, formerly named "Soca Atma" (Meaning Wondering Soul in Hindu), Soca was a rather content child. She was birthed into the care of two cautious parent: the mother went by the name "Dara", while the father was named "Daya". With the two of them together? Fear and compassion was brought into the world. The origins of Dara often tied into worry in the Hindu language, while Daya was revered as the art of kindness. It is under this structure that the two kept Soca quite the sheltered child during her upbringing. They taught her how to read, write, talk and all the early development a child goes through. But -- rarely would they let her experience the world.
Keeping her imprisoned in quite the bubble, Soca was left to always observe the world from inside a steel cage. The only warmth she understood in this life was the safety, protection and terror implanted within her heart from mother and father. While Soca was quite fond of her parents and felt extremely dependent on them for her survival, she often wanted to just -- explore. Yet -- her parents described Demon World as a murderous placed. One where a spirit can be easily turned into a slave, kidnapped into the abyss and or left on the side of the road as a corpse. They scolded her when she tried to leave their ever-increasing compound of a house. Beating her and then telling the child it was for her own good, placing barriers to prevent her from wandering from the property and forcing her into solitary confinement left quite the impression on the child.
During this time, she was left with nothing to do but reflect inward on herself or outward towards the world. Always observing the scenery from a distance; this was a striking memory in Soca's mind as she could only witness life from afar. As the years progressed, Daya and Dara started to increasingly take their will to live up their powers attributes more as their personalities became further intermixed. Out of worried concern for their daughter, their home soon reflected an actual prison meant to block out the world. With only them and their offspring -- this was suppose to create the perfect sanctuary -- but nothing in life is that safe. Especially not in a place like demon world.
While Soca grew increasingly withdrawn into herself, she was left with no choice but to explore the inner confines of her mind and spirit. In doing so -- something was triggered. After going into a catatonic state to detach herself from this reality, a lever was pulled within The Demoness's blood. Unknown to the parents at the time, the blood within Dara's family lineage had tendency to produce the potential for Rakshasa's to be born every few centuries. Well, being that it had been unannounced for so many years, the atavism of the Hell Demon had awakened within Soca -- and this had been no random or freak accident.
Deep within the pits of hell, The Demon Queen known as Mana Asthavon was called to deal with the dilemma of the former Hell Guardian of the 2nd Layer of Hades dying off. Being that most Rakshasa's from the second layer of Hell reflected the current state of Demon World, the former Hell Guardian known as "Mazabuta Hoga" (Strong Will in Hindu) needed a successor from the Capital Country. The problem was -- this race was an anomaly. Out of the tens of billions of demon's that are born, not even one percent of them are able to be suitable candidates to be Hell Guardians. Therefore, they spent many years searching for a trace of Rakshasa blood within the Mainland -- until they found it inside of Soca at the age of eight.
In this lucid state of mind Soca was placed under by her parents upbringing, a mental connection was placed between Mazabuta and Soca due to her consciousness being so unhinged at the time. In doing so, Mazabuta, reluctantly, disclosed the location her location to the new regime in charge of Demon World. Due to the fact that the ramifications of NOT having a Hell Guardian for this dimension of Hell were worse than ruining the life of an innocent child, Mazabuta was forced with the morale dilemma of saving unforetold lives versus a single life.
If there was no one else to take the throne of the 2nd Guardian, then the very fabric of Hell would be destabilized. If allowed to take full coarse, then Hell itself risked imploding and causing a spatial distortion throughout the known realms that would cause a catastrophic event the likes of which no soul had ever seen. Thus...Soca was a suitable sacrifice as a last testament to the former Queen's will. It is what she would have wanted to keep the order of things and she would live true to that order to the very last breathe taken from Mazabuta while her body was still a separate entity.
Thus, there was no going back for the then Sinfall. Orders were received, guns loaded and the organized the military of the Central Capital went to apprehend Soca from her parents. They destroyed the very dome that Dara and Daya had spent so much time constructing rather easily. Of course there was resistance from the two, as they fought hundreds of thousands of demon's for many hours. Yet -- their strength was not infinite. After falling prey to the might of The Demon Queen, Soca's mother and father were beheaded by The Queen.
And in that time? Soca was helpless to stop. Being held within a mental embrace of Mazabuta, the distressed child tried crying out to her parents with all of her might, but even in it's dying the state, the former Hell Guardian proved too much for her to escape. Thus, she was rendered helpless to do anything else but watch as her body laid stiff on the floor; but mind filled with the burning sorrow of a frightened child.
Once the deed was done, Mana had sent for the 665th Rakshasa to instate the child as one of the Hell Guardians promptly and burn down the place post-haste. Pleading, Soca said she wanted to be rid of this outcome. Yes, she screamed out in her head to be freed of this trauma and have another chance at life. This wasn't happening, it couldn't happen and the impact of the real world outside of those walls couldn't be the truth.
So, as Mazabuta heard the child's pleas, the final act of her life would be to infuse the the will of herself into Soca. If the child yearned for freedom from these memories? That was the wish which would be granted. All eight years of her life would be eradicated, but the foundation of a new persona was laid out. The will of Mazabuta would keep a steady mental health for the newborn Rakshasa, the fear of her mother turned into the bridge meant to absolve the world's harshness and allow her to be carefree and the strength stemmed from compassion out of her father birthed quite the understanding and patient person. Together with the lust for freedom, the introspection of self and curious wonder of the world developed by Soca: the psyche of Liu Tounao would be founded on the crux of this terrible tragedy.
And so, as Ravan gave superstition of the 2nd Layer of Hell to Soca, the instant they arrived back into The Underworld -- Liu was born. Taking knowledge of the Chinese Language from leftover memories of Mazabuta, the nameless Rakasha arose from the dirt of Hell and uttered out her name to the heavens: "Liu...Touano....Flow....Mind"
CHAPTER 2: DEVELOPMENT OF LIU
Active Years: This portion of Liu's history takes place from the year 2146 to the year 2154
These days were considered to be filled with unforetold bliss by the likes of Liu Touano. There wasn't much worry because the paternal figure of Ravan was usually there to keep her in check and in order. This is because he was the primary person responsible for allowing her to grow into the woman she was today. She loved this man as a father because he taught her many of the basic aspects of herself that she needed in order to thrive in this world of monsters, beasts and damned souls.
One of the first lessons the creator of Hell Demon's bestowed upon Liu was her Aspect of Death. The very first day that these two were brought to her realm, the father of Rakshasa informed her that she would represent the current regime of Demon World. It would forever be her curse and burden to weigh the pressure of it's existence upon her shoulders. For, as The 2nd Hell Demon of Hell, it was her duty and task to become the crux and core of Demon World to hold it together so as to not repeat the incident which spurred her birth.
In spite of that, being the youthful spirit she was, Liu was rather happy to take this challenge on in all of her naivety. In that moment, the child assumed that if she was designed for such a purpose, the satanic gods above must've given her the strength and fortitude to deal with such a strain, right? Of course. That is what she had to believe to keep herself sane. So, with a smile across her face, the child of Demon World accepted her eternal task without the slightest of hesitation.
And, in response to such a conviction, Ravan understood that it was best to indulge Liu into the deeper aspects of her existence. As, further beyond the veil of that aspect, her embodiment of the current regime induced within her a sense of freedom. Freedom that could seek to liberate her to the highest of highs, or condemn her to the lowest of lows. For her ultimate aspect of death was dubbed as "Choice". Every decision and path a person takes leads them to liberation -- or confinement -- upon one's death. There is no in between in this world of slaves and freed spirits.
Of course, she never quite understood what he meant by that at the time, but she knew she wanted to achieve the former. The unsuspecting child of Liu simply knew nothing of the road it would take her upon. Of course, even if she did know, there still was no going back. So since Ravan understood this as fact, he took it upon himself to at least transcribe the path in which her powers would take. That is to say: The Father of Hell Demon's gave his child numerous runes to study if she wanted to achieve the true enlightenment which her power could provide.
In these runes that he bestowed upon her were knowledge that could lead to the development of her Tainted Skin, the awakening of her unique abilities, the taming of Death's Energy and the inevitable growth of Liu's other sides: her hell beast -- and her Tukaṛā Saitāna. He then explained to her that depending on the choices she took, the paths she made and experiences she endured; her powers, the path of demon world and her layer of Hell would be influenced by them. Since she was The Hell Beast of liberation, this was her choice to lead both herself and the world in which she was shackled to into a new era alongside the Mad Queen's regime to keep it hooked and harmonized on the enslavement of her body and spirit.
Infused with this knowledge, Liu dared to set forth on the path towards being the Liberating Overseer of Demon World and The Underworld. For it was obvious that The Demon Queen could not provide balance and harmony for her kingdom, so it was up to the spirit of Liu to help keep that overflowing sentiment of freedom in these lands. But, more importantly, she only wanted to make her perceived "father" happy with these goals.
Even if Ravan was not the most talkative of beings, the distance he placed from most beings only drew her closer because she wanted him to acknowledge her. All she wanted to do was be a good little girl in order to make her maker happy, pleased and proud of her. For, if she had that, there could be nothing but bliss and content in her heart. So, as she was swung at the hip of her papa's leg, she'd dare to embark this life of the accursed and damned.
Ergo, when time allotted, The Ruler of The Hell Verse would lead this child through the different verses of Hades in order to help the child view what potential kingdoms she could create. This was to give Liu experience, broaden her mind and give a viewpoint into what sort of world that she could create. While, for her, she was simply just happy to explore the unknowns of the universe with her papa. There was nothing more pleasing than that because she felt safe and secure with him.
More than that, she loved it whenever he took the time out of his busy schedules to teach her the ways of a demon. Everything from unlocking the basics of her prowess as a Rakshasa, to further trying to unhinge the construct of her Liberation Flux from within. This period was a time of development and growth within Liu that she is quite fond of. However, they still needed to deal with the elephant in the room: and that was her kingdom. All the while, during these ventures, it was placed into a stasis state of being until Liu herself was ready to manage on her own with Ravan having nurtured the seed of The Demon Queen's stabilizing vessel.
Thus, towards the end of this era, Ravan felt he was ready to cut the ties of his child and plot her into place where she belonged: her own world.
CHAPTER 3: THE ERUPTION OF UNCERTAINTY AND MALICE
Active Years: This portion of Liu's history takes place from March in the year 2191 to June the year 2228
The Underworld was a barren and strict place when it came under the leadership of Liu. This is because the former owner of this realm had kept a rigid and stiff regime that cast the inhabitants of hell into the darkest of shadows. As, under the iron fist of the former Demon Queen's rule, did she enforce the strictest of policies to be enforced. So, when the youthful figure of Liu came into the picture, she sought to give her followers a choice: the path of freedom, or the road of imprisonment.
Therefore, although she was a newborn Hell Beast, the dimension in which she ruled heard this call and broke the shackles of limitation upon her subjects. The residents of her layer of hell were free to do as they pleased, so long as they did it within the boundaries of her realm. She believed, at the time, that it was the correct decision to make. As, it was clear that the previous lead of restriction and constraint was rubbish, so she wanted to choose the path of absolute freedom and ignore the need for balance; despite a gentle voice nagging at her conciseness which spoke otherwise.
If she was The Hell Beast of Liberation, then she thought she had best represent the alignment and allow total freedom over her world. Hence, following that, she saw fit to make her Temple of Sinners and make a place for her and the realm of sinners to call home. It took many weeks, if not, months to create; but she eventually established this planet-sized mansion in order to house those who wished to receive a home and a place to indulge in absolute liberation. Free housing, unlimited food and waves of security were some of the amenities that she provided.
While Ravan advised against being so loose and flimsy with her rules, Liu honestly thought she was providing the best solution to the problem of hell's instability. If everyone could just feel the rays of liberation and freedom flowing through their bodies, there would no longer be any sort of stiff troubles or problems. It was a pure thought, but even the most best of intentions can lead a spirit and people straight down the path of absolute hell.
Thus, as her first mistake, she soon learned that this was not the correct solution. As, sooner, rather than later, did her kingdom start falling apart at the seams. There were many factions fighting for power, others feeling oppressed from those with strength, resources were becoming scarce and a new wave of tension overfilled the depths of Hell. It jarred, tore and bled at the strings of Liu's heart. Since, during this period, her childish mind couldn't understand why her creation was failing. She had invested the seeds of pure intent into her land, so why was it not working?
Was there too much liberation? Could such a thing even exist? Why couldn't her plan just work? Was there something with herself? Was she the reason to blame? Just why? She couldn't understand, she wanted to understand and it left her entirely heart broken and dismayed.
To compound on issues further, the girl was pushed further into the corner as the strongest residents of Hell began to surround, chase and come after her in order to kill her, take her power and feed off the corpse of The Hell Demon to attain her powers and rule over Hell for themselves. So as she was chased all throughout the dimension of The Second Layer of Hell, Liu tried her best to evade this fate as she never really desired to fight. The girl never wanted to use her powers as a demons since she just wanted to have fun, explore and learn about the world of freedom; she never wanted to resort to force or aggression to pull out her desires.
Yet, even with all of these hopes, they still could not come to reality and she was trapped. It was terrifying, crippling and all consuming as her psyche was pushed further and further towards the edge. Not a hand from her father came, nor a supporter from the world she tried to make a home; she was utterly and entirely abandoned to cope with these complications of her domain on her own. As, from the perception of Ravan, she needed to learn this lesson in order to become an effective and self-sufficient Hell Demon.
Therefore, under these intense circumstances, the yang within her heart was restricted and the voice of negativity seeped into her brain. It whispered sweet echoes of letting go of her kindness, absolving her false positive persona and giving in to the devil that she truly was. As, to rule over these lands took a rigid and sadistic fist. No soul such as hers could achieve that, for these spirits would only break her down into a puddle of abysmal nothingness.
So, to liberate herself from that, the unrestricted essence of vengeance, hurt and horror which lay so suppressed within the heart of Liu dared to bring itself to the surface. It would morph herself into a messenger of wrath and invoke her mind's inner sorrow at the burden she was birthed with. After all, she reflected that of demon world, so why not bled it's true colors into this world of hell? SHE WAS IT'S ESSENCE!
Ergo -- she gave in.
She resisted it for as long as she could, but there simply wasn't anything left in her to fight. Not a single soul by her side. Not an ounce of fight left. Only abhorrent shades of fear, anguish and failure surrounded the shattered remains of her once untainted psyche. Therefore, from those ruins arose a true devil and one who would act as her enraged mask to help this Rakshasa cope with the world she was forced into.
One who could be vicious, strong and unyielding to the ways of the wicked existence which grasped at the throat of Liu. Therefore, the core of her tainted skin was born and The Hell Demon decayed into an era of depravity and sin under the guise of "Míngjiè Zìyóu"; Hades liberation. However, there would be anything but freedom that for those who served under this Yang of Liu's heart. For what she craved was to punish the world for how much it took away from her.
All of the years her soul was sacrificed, the life she once led and the spirits whom she once were; there was so much blood spilled and gone to make this work. And, despite these efforts, the hell verse itself wanted her dead and she would give them a taste of their own medicine to make them rue the day that her life ever came to be. That is what her irrational heart desired and that is the desire which would be materialized in the world around them.
Thus, without any further regret, the newly liberated Liu inverted herself and brought about the yang within herself to rule over Hell. Countless lives were broken, shattered and destroyed by the cut-throat tactics of Liu's new persona. The blood of many endless rebels were slaughtered, the power of those who sought to take hers away were promptly dismantled and the sheer grip of control and fear induced in the realm was stifling.
Of course, this did not mean she won every battle out there, but even when losing -- Liu never went down without leaving a scar. She'd always take a limb, an organ, your energy or whatever else her frantic claws could scar and mark upon you. The Tainted Skin of Liu poisoned her mind, influenced her powers and dared to break the fires of a true demon to life under the guise of her pain. So, as time went on, this world reflected that and it became a truly hellish place to live.
Yet, to Liu, this universe only had itself to blame. Such a cruel thing should have never been created to begin with. With the prowess at her hand, she would dare to even defile the divine creators of this realm if she could become powerful enough. So, through this progression of time, the greatest leaps in power would be had by Liu for this singular purpose. No one, not even the universe itself, would put her through that pain again. She became cold, brutal and cut-throat in order to empower herself, seek new levels of energy and push her body to the brink with every training session and battle which occurred during this period of radical contempt and hate.
The days were drowned in red, her body was like a fire and the world around her was a frigid monster doing its damndest to consume her, break her and turn her into food for the beast whom lived within it's domain. But, through her demented resolve, she would snap, shatter and do her best to obliterate anything which dared to encroach upon the four walls of her heart. This bitterness, malice and utter loathing of the world was what kept her going through this period. Everyone was a potential target and she treated the world as her enemy out of need and in alignment with her origins.
But, despite that, no one spirit could ever hold a rage for eternity -- could they?

Sure, I'm down for this. I have plans to do some minor work on Steiner's powers and finish Sho's app, so it would make sense for me to take part in this.
The Sho App is complete: http://www.platinumhearts.net/t15172-sho-fuya-finished#99833
Will be working on power revisions for Steiner probably on Friday or Saturday depending on how things go.
