The League of Extraordinary... Beings:|
1. Choose five to seven characters.
2. They may be from books, movies, comics, TV shows, games, and real life -- but no traditional superheroes.
3. They may be from any place in the universe, any time. They do not have to be from the same place/time as the original League.
4. You must identify the recruiter, the villain, and the leader, and there must be at least one female.
5. Optional, you may identify their main mode of transportation.
[Profession] Schoolgirl, adventurer.
[Strengths] Daughter of an angel. Has assistance of various ghosts when she needs it.
[Weaknesses] Only ten. Mostly just human. Also, now dead.
[Profession] Embodiment of a universal force. One of the Endless.
[Strengths] Has the powers of the Endless. Very perceptive and wise during her lucid moments.
[Weaknesses] Her lucid moments are infrequent at best. Tends to fall apart - literally, usually involving butterflies - in times of stress.
[Strengths] The power of the snark! Also, highly perceptive.
[Weaknesses] Smokes, drinks, and takes drugs far too much. Sleeps with unsuitable men, and falls in love with posh lawyer-housemates who are just about to get married.
[Profession] Trusted manservant to King Uther, and later to his son Arthur.
[Strengths] Friend of Merlin. Loyal to the death when people have earned his trust.
[Weaknesses] Human. His trust isn't easy to earn. Pretty much a loner.
[Profession] Carpenter. Vampire hunter.
[Strengths] Eternally loyal. Has no special powers and still never backs down from the Good Fight.
[Weaknesses] Has no special powers. Now blind in one eye.
Leader: The Marquis de Carabas
[Profession] Seeker of favours. Man for hire when it suits him.
[Strengths] Will do anything, even die, to complete his assigned task once he's taken it on.
[Weaknesses] Possibly completely psychotic. Will only do anything when there's something in it for him or he's promised a favour in return.
The Recruiter: Richard Mayhew. Because he'd so be good at it. And he knows ways to get round the Marquis. *wink*
The Villain: The Basanos.
[Profession] Evil pack of tarot cards that want to take over the universe. Only not our universe - it's a long and complicated story. Read the Lucifer comics to get it.
[Strengths] Pretty much indestructible except by very special means. Or unless you're a supernatural being.
[Weaknesses] Can't actually do anything without human assistance, although they don't seem to have much trouble recruiting it.
