Wow! It’s been a hot minute since I posted. I had a new concept come to me over the week, one involving titanic elemental deities in need of heralds to combat a growing evil! I know, I know, ordinary people empowered by the divine, sounds familiar, but whatever ;)

Background: So essentially there a couple of these primordial lovecraftian elemental personalities that inhabit various parts of Earth’s biosphere (The Deep, The Aether, The Firmament, The Core, etc.). Most of them play nice with each other, but there is an especially ambitious/evil/nihilistic entity that has an affinity to nothingness, The Void). The threat of the others teaming up against it has always kept it in relative check, until an unknown human being comes into contact with the Immensity (an entity that embodies everything living/natural/cosmic force in the universe) and becomes a vessel for its power. The Void begins hunting for that human in hopes of gaining the power they hold and its fellows follow suit to prevent this from happening. However, these entities do not directly combat each other, because, well let’s just say the last couple mass extinctions on the planet are evidence of what happens when they do. So each of them chooses a herald, a human being with an affinity for their element, to wield their gifts and work towards their goals. So here goes…

Kaito Kaneko – Nagare

Kaito Kaneko was a surfer in Japan, somewhat of a local celebrity who spent more time in the ocean than on land. It was a particularly normal day when he was summoned. Kaito was up at dawn, ready to hit the surf within the hour and in the water before anybody else. He was by himself when, without warning, a particularly strong current began drawing him out to sea. Kaito found himself in the middle of a massive whirlpool that drew him down to the ocean floor. He thought he would drown, but THE DEEP reached out to him, a massive tendril, and bestowed its gifts on him. Kaito became the champion of water, able to manipulate it in all its forms. In addition to his hydrokinesis, Kaito can alter the temperature of water in his vicinity, and his body has been enhanced to enable him to withstand the pressures of the deepest parts of the oceans and to breathe underwater. His senses have been similarly augmented. Out of all of his fellow heralds, Kaito is the most level-headed. He is calm, but when provoked can attack with a ferocity unparalleled.

Edda Vos – Orkaan

Edda Vos was a commercial pilot from Amsterdam, ferrying the occasional passenger in her single-engine rig or taking the odd shipping job. She didn’t make a lot of money from her travels and during busy travel seasons worked as a flight attendant, anything she could do to get up in the air. Edda loved being high above the ground, away from everything and everyone if only for just a minute. Edda was alone in her own plane, when sudden violent updrafts caused her to lose control of the craft. She fell into a downward spiral that she could not escape, violent winds tearing her craft apart until she herself was flung from the cockpit out into the open air. As she fell Edda closed her eyes and tried to make peace with her impending doom when she realized she wasn’t falling. She was suspended in the air, and could see the vastness of the planet below her. It filled her with joy. That was when THE AETHER reached out to her and bestowed its gifts upon her. Edda gained the ability to ride the air currents of the planet, higher and faster than any mechanical means could propel her. She can control these currents and manipulate them to create tremendously powerful cyclones and violent gusts of wind. Her body has adapted to enable her to withstand the high altitudes and extreme temperatures of the upper atmosphere and her senses as well (particularly her sight and hearing).
