PostSubject: Paradox Children    Sat Apr 19, 2014 6:37 pm

Name: Paradoxian (pronunciation: Paradox-i-an more commonly dubbed as Paradox People or Paradox Children.)

Appearance:
They tend to look like normal humans each varying hugely from each other, though there have been rare cases of a Paradoxian taking form of other aliens then humans.

Attitude:
They take on the personality of the species they look like. Though they usually/sometimes are the black sheep and act whatever is considered alien to that species they look like. Most of the time they will not even know they are a Paradoxian.

Technology:
They have knowledge and understanding of Space-Time and the basics of Paradoxes embedded into their memories similar to how one would repress memories giving them a high intelligence but nowhere near as as smart as The Time-Lords nor is their understanding of Space-Time better. If the given the right equipment and inspiration they could advance/impact the technology for generations to come. For example a certain caveman striking two rocks together creating fire after seeing a flash of lightning strike a tree setting it a light.

Backstory:
They have been around since the beginning of time, it unknown how they form or come into existence even to a Paradoxian who has somehow unlocked the memories which contained the knowledge of the universe. What is known is that when ever a Paradox was suppose to happen or did happen there is a chance for a Paradoxian is born.
They are usually considered gods or immortals among the primitive species they are born into due to their extremely long life span, slow ageing, rapid cellular regrowth which is technically a form of regeneration as seen with superheroes such as Deadpool and Wolverine but it is not the same as a time lord mainly because when they die they die for example if  human paradox was shot in the heart/any other vital organ they would die. Which is the only thing share in common with the Timelords is that they can regrow severed limbs and if this even comes at a price. Each time they have to use their cellular regrowth they lose something each time. It is ether an important memory and/or the regrown body part has permanent deformity or damage after the regrowth and it would get worse each time But what ever it is - it could maybe be like... worse each time. For example a Paradoxian breaks their arm, the price for this would could be forgetting who a person is. Break it again, oh look now its a bit bent or could have a huge scar running down the centre of it.
(During role play this would be determined my using the random number generator which would be set between 1 and 3: 1=memory loss, 2=permanent deformity, 3=Memory loss and permanent deformity)

They as have as I stated earlier they have knowledge and understanding of Space-Time as repressed memories which influences their choices made on instinct. They have knowledge because they are literally a living version of an aspect of time. It is also only random pieces of knowledge about Space-Time and the information would differ from Paradoxian to Paradoxian, the only bit of information they do all share is that they are a Paradoxian and the basis of a paradox. The reason for it being stored as repressed memories and only as random pieces instead of everything about Space-Time is because it would be too much for them at first for any life form they take on at first. If it was left un repressed when they are first born which has happened in some cases their brain becomes overloaded and they can't function properly, when this occurred for humans they are just considered autistic as their brains get older they become more capable to hold the information so as they grow older the memories become un-repressed. A Paradoxian who has gotten to the age (which varies greatly from Paradoxian to Paradoxian) where all of the memories become un-repressed refer to them selves as awakened since they now know what they are.

Only a few creatures have discovered the existence of the Paradoxians those being The Weeping Angels, The Timelords and The Darleks.

The Weeping Angels tend to avoid and even fear Paradoxians as if they were their natural predator because the a Paradoxian's Time Energy seems to be a natural repellent and poison to them seeing how Paradoxians were somehow born from paradoxes.

The Time Lords had a similar reaction to the Paradoxians as The Weeping Angel but were a little more extreme about there discovery. Since there were very few on Gallifrey they were hunted down and killed.

The Darleks technically haven't discovered the Paradoxians yet whenever one appears as a Darlek it usually shows emotion and compassion so it is either imprisoned or destroyed.

Paradoxians cannot reproduce to make more Paradoxians, for example if a two Paradoxians in human form mate their child would be human but with qualities of a Paradoxian such as a slightly longer life span, highly intelligent and so on. When a Paradoxian dies it could be mistaken as a Timelord regenerating but Paradoxians don't regenerate when they die their body breaks down into particles of their time energy which looks like golden glowing dust.

Paradoxians are the only known aliens to date that travel where a paradox is to supposedly occur and feed off of it, this is why they were dubbed with the name Paradox Children. It is unknown why they do this.

Present:
Most of the Paradoxians don't even know what they are and live out the lives as the life form they took. But those who have 'awakened' have formed an intergalactic council of sorts doing their best to prevent wars and to keep peace between all races in the universe.
However this only a cover up for a reason for them to meet where they share the limited knowledge of time each one has and record it to learn and have a better understanding of Space-Time along with hopefully discovering how and why they came into existence.
They also predict where a Paradox will appear so they can travel there to feed off it while at the same time hoping to witness the birth of a new Paradoxian and then watch them through out life waiting for them to be 'awakened' so they can approach them and bring them into their council.

WELL..

I know you haven't finished yet, but before you do, a few things to consider:

"Rapid Cellular Regrowth" sounds an awful lot like regeneration to me. We don't allow that sort of thing to other species, so if you could possibly explain? Or take out of the part if you have to.

"Knowledge of the entire universe" sounds a bit Time Lord, as well. It could have passed, maybe, with the locking away of memories, but it's a bit godmoddish. Maybe consider limiting this? Like to knowledge about things connected to the paradox that 'formed' them, for example.

I think that's all that needs fixing that I can see, but if you've got good reasoning behind those things and you really don't want to lose them, please add that in.

Alright, I swear I tried to read this. But there are so many run on sentences here without punctuation I can't decipher what you're saying.

Don't mean to be a bother or a nag but do you mind cleaning it up a bit? I feel like I'm going to miss something important.

Okay I think that should be better now. When reading over it I got the same problem you had but it only seemed like a run on sentance us some places because it was all squished up so I made them into para graphs and added a few commas and full stops. So once again....

BUMP!

Well, first of all, thank you for breaking that up a bit.

But I'm sorry to say that I cannot approve this.

This is basically a race of Gary and Mary-sues. They are practically immortal, they know LITERALLY everything, and can regenerate. Even if you do end up fixing the rest of this, you can't let them regenerate at all. You're basically saying that you could shoot them in the head, but if they didn't die on impact, they would be able to heal themself. These creatures are basically Gods and for that I cannot approve them.

Now, talking about knowledge. Like I told you before, they can't know EVERYTHING. That is unfair and impossible. If we're talking realistically, even with repressed memories, a person like that would simply be unable to function normally. And if they became unrepressed? They wouldn't be autistic, they'd be dead. They would literally die. So you have to either take this out too, or limit it in some way. There is just no way this would be possible the way you're describing it.

Onto the other aliens, now. First, let's talk about the Cybermen. Now, you were right in saying that they would overload when fed back human emotion, but information? They are made of information. They've got tons of memory banks and pods and ways to store information. Now, the way you wrote it, the Cybermen already knew about them before they tried to convert them, so wouldn't they have had some storage handy? They're not stupid. This is unrealistc.

Also, Time Lords wouldn't have helped these people. Take a look at Jack. The Doctor, while he was already friends with him, was disgusted by his presence. Now what would happen if the average Time Lord - one who was less hung up about killing - found a person they didn't know and saw them to be a human paradox? They wouldn't help that, they'd destroy it. They'd hunt them down instead of the Silence.

Which brings me around to them. The Silence were engineered for a Church. They were made so you could confess your sins without knowing you did. Naturally, they're peaceful. They're only aggressive when made to be that way, so you just saying that they - on their own apart from the Church - found them and began to hunt them is just a bit... unlikely.

Now, onto their present. Jumping back a bit, remember when I said any person like this would have to be mentally disabled? Well, the council thing would just be impossible. Anyone who knew about their memories would just die - all humans, at the very least. So the 'awakening' isn't really a thing that could happen without destroying them all.

Besides - you never really mentioned what "awakening" was. I'm assuming that it's the unrepressing of their memories, but... For future reference, please describe everything you mention.

So, after all of that, the conclusion I come to is that this alien race is far too gone to fix. If you want to give it a shot, be my guest, but if you try and ignore any of what I've said, I'll just shut this down. Most of this isn't anything you can negotiate, so if you want to see how far you can push your limits, please ask a site owner or myself about it first.

ALRIGHT.

I think that this could pass, now. But be wary of using any abilities in RP - no one appreciates someone going overboard.

Approved~ Thank you for taking our advice
