In the modern day Earth many have become oblivious to the other worlds around them, the worlds of Heaven (Paradisio) and Hell (Ghenna). Angels and Demons exist in the world but take human form to hide their existance.
One boy, Julian Lockworth, comes from a rich family and for a strange reason can see these celestial creatures. He has been abused by his family for being a "black sheep" and bullied by people who call him a freak. Demons came to him and became his only friends and protect him promising, they'll be his friends if he can look after them. Julian agreed. When he turned 21 he and his family had a car accident killing everyone but him; saved by the demons. Julian inherited the Lockworth Mansion (a huge building with many bedrooms and the sorts), the family's money- so much so that he wouldn't have to work most of his life. But he attempted to commit suicide in light of events but was saved by a Demon who said he was so much more important than this, her name was Eineus.
Over one year he invested and refurbished the home to create a haven for demons to live in. A place of rest and a place where Demons can come to live ordinary lives (exedingly long ones ). Julian said Demons can work at the mansion and they'll be fed and given a free room. Others can live and pay rent which didn't amount to too much but enought to keep the Mansion in order.
The first Demon was a Vergest named Eineus (A high ranking Dog Demon; skilled with the blade) that came and seeked refuge to help Julian realise his dream of Demons co-existing with humans.
So come Demons of all kinds, rest and live here peacefully. Come live a normal, happy life here at the Lockworth Mansion.
ALL CITYSCAPE RULES APPLY
This is a casual Roleplay, there won't be much action but I may plan on adding it later in the story maybe.
Post as much or as little as you want- just don't double post and keep it over the minimum limit according to the rules.
Race- (Human- if you can see Angels and Demons only, please not too many people like this) or (Demon- What type of demon are you-- be creative, make up a demon race)
Apperance- (Links allowed)
Personality- (How do they behave)
History- (Keep it somewhat breif but give us a good bit about your characters past, how he found Julian etc. add to Julian's history whatever )
Occupation- (Do they have a job at the mansion or in the local area)
Powers- (Demon only- as I say there may be action so you may want to note what they're good at or what powers they have)
I'll leave this up for a week or so, that way people can make characters. No IC posts in this time. I'll say when you can start posting and then anyone can post first.
Name- Julian Lockworth
Personality- Julian is a kind soul and wouldn't hurt anyone but as he grew up he became more cold and quiet. He doesn't talk to many people, usually only the demons that live at the mansion are those he talks to. People that pick on him he is more aggressive to now also. Calm and quiet, quite intelligent able to run the family business and the mansion at the same time.
History- You've kinda seen his history above. But to add to it, his family became rich by running a large business of contractors for almost any job. Many people phone him fro a job they can't do and he'll probably have someone able to do it- for a price. Met Eineus and they promised to stay by each others side forever as they shared part of their souls with each other forming a contract where Julian now can live as long as demons can.
Occupation- Owner and landlord of the Lockworth Mansion. Head of contractor company- Lockworth Contractors.
Age- Not really known but roughly around 700 years old.
Race- Demon- Vergest (Dog Demon)
Personality- Strong willed and calm. Very friendly to her partner/master- Julian. She has a strong determination to help those in need and can be a big sister role for many even though fairly young in demon years. Harbours some feelings for Julian. Very protective, especially of Julian.
History- A powerful and high ranking demon with exectional skill with the blade and carries a katana with her at all times in a seal on her left palm which was tatoo'd on early on in her years. Killed many humans, but only those near death or those that caused great harm that she was instucted to kill. However a terrible thing happened once (will be revealed later) that caused her to abandon her post and came to Julian seeking refuge after saving him and becoming bound by contract.
Occupation- Head maid of the Lockworth Mansion.
Powers- Wields the sword Uchigatana- a powerful blade that can be imbued with fire (carried in her seal) also has a blade stored in her personal broom's shaft. She has even left seals in the Mansion containing swords that she can use in case.

History- Jonas has been traveling most of what you could call his life, cohercing innocents into a watery grave in every land he would step foot in. He was playful and well liked in circles of seers over the centuries and kept on the move to avoid becoming connected. He met his human partner by chance, wading into waters for his normal activities to find someone had already fallen to the fate of a watery death, on the edge of the afterlife. He felt compelled to save the girl who did not fall at his discretion and is on a mission to save her. He became aware that demons go to the mansion so with the girl in his arms he went.
Occupation- Just a visitor passing through.
Powers- Mostly uses his charming nature and mystical qualities to convince others to do as he pleases but is skilled in the art of war.

Julian laid motionless in a luxury cotton and silk bed only with the occasional turn. From the door came a prominent knock. "Master? I am entering now." came a calm female's voice.
The door opened slowly to reveal a girl with white hair and grey eyes clad in a maid uniform. She made her way to the bed and lightly shook the bed Julian laid in. Julian slowly woke after some coaxing and turned to a friendly face with a smile, "Good morning, Eineus. Another day I wonder if we'll have new guests at all today. There's been quite a quiet period recently." He pushed back his covers and stood rubbing his eyes whilst searching for clothing.
Eineus had already placed clothes on his chair and had gone to open the curtains revealing a wonderful morning sun that made her hair shimmer beautifully. She turned and said to her 'Master', "Good morning Master, I hope you slept well. New guests would be nice yes. I'm going to prepare the morning duties. I shall leave you to get ready. If you'll excuse me Master."
Julain grabbed her hand just before she left, "I'm sorry for having you do this each day. Thankyou."
Eineus blushed and her bushy tail beneath her uniform wagged somewhat before she regained her composure, "A-a-ahem, anything for my Master. Now if you'll excuse me." she left the room as Julian began to change. Eineus closed the door and leant against it holding her chest, "So blunt sometimes, Master. Don't do that so well" she whispered to herself. She stood and corrected her uniform and went off towards the staff room passing wonderful hallways clad with red velvet and wonderous paintings and the sorts on her way.
Pops went up to the house , the bags were on thier way , and with Sophia bouncing behind him , listening to the latest J-pop sounds coming from Tokyo , strange thing about her he would never figure out . He heard the familiar tick of his cane upon the ground , along with the clink of his left leg , which was no more , now replaced by tiatnium . He knocked on the door to this rather old world looking house , this is where he had been advised to got in this area of the country . He knew his usual grey suit ruffled in the wind , and sophia now had the ear plugs out of her ears , out of respect for someone elses household . Pops was casing the place while he waited outside , This would be a nightmare for anyone who wanted to take out a target in a place like this , though it was possible , it would take an entire team to enter this place . He checked his colt on more time , and checked the the dragons head on his cane , where the button for his single round inside the cane resided . He knocked once more , and Sophia was getting rather bored now , so she put her ear plugs back in for the time being .......
Maya gently poured the tea inside the teapot and covered it with its cover. She sighed deeply satisfied. "It is a beautiful morning." She said to apparently nobody as she looked outside the window. "I wish we had more days like this one." Maya reached and grabbed the teapot as she made her way to the dining room, resting it on the middle of the table. She had already set the cutlery, the napkins and the plates all that was left now was the food.
Maya went back into the kitchen walking softly in her bare feet (like always) and starting preparing toast, bread, eggs, basically a very variate breakfast.
"I hope everyone is up."
Suddenly she heard a knock on the door. "Who might that be?" She asked not bothering to go check.
Pops knew most maids would have come at the first knock , most certainly in a hurry on the second on , he however was a polite man , he merely took a deep breath reasserting his patience for others house holds , as that was part of the rules of the handlers . He had abided by them for 40 years now , he wasn't about to quit now , so he gave three firm knocks on the door , and stood for a moment , then realizing none inside the not so humble abode was lsitening . He gave Sophia the look that told her it was time to go , she checked her J-frame , and the went back along the way to his truck , an old 1947 ford , which was by no means state of the art in todays world , and horrible on the petrol . He gave the place one last look , it would have been mighty comfortable in the place , He was now accepting he was no longer a spring chicken , so that was too bad . As old as he was , he was still fast as the day he started with his gun anyway , not so much on his feet . He still hadn't gotten used to the vest he wore now , though he still wanted a nice closed place to call home , too many hotel rooms ......
Akuma swayed left and right down the corridor, groaning slightly with pain. "Never... Ever... Again..." he muttered, he said that at least a thousand times over; you'd think he'd be used to hang overs by now. He was already dressed which he got out of the way every morning before doing anything else, he made his way down to front door and literally jerked it open. "Fresh air!!" He yelled as he inhaled, "I actually feel a little better now. I'll never drink again.." He looked noticing an older looking man and a young girl looking at the mansion. "You guys the ones knocking just now?" He said "Well if you got business here old timer I'm not the one you should be talking to, unless of course you got assassination work in that case I'm your man." Akuma laughed, then gave the signal to come inside. "If you want to see the owner i'd get your butts in here and wait."
Pops automaticly gripped his cane knowing it was old habit by now , something that might get him trouble he saw a seemingly hung over man at the door , he could smell the booze from here , though he gave his best friendly nod he could , lit a smoke , and gave Sophia a look . She nodded her head still bouncing to the sound of J-pop , She went over , the sound of the J-pop music was blaring out of her head phones , " Thank you for the invite , I think he needs a place to rest , he has just gone to get the lorry . " Pops was already walking abck to the gate where the truck was , it started up with a V8 roar , a throaty , guttteral sound as he put her in gear through the gate . He slowly pulled up into one of the empty patches of conrete in the frontal area . He got out with a suitcase , and one of the full lenth clothes storage for ladies clothes . He came in through the door after Sophia , seeing a very grandious structure in front of him . He only took a good pull of his lucky strike as he took it all in , and looked for possible threat areas , though this place should be one of relative safety . Though he did not know one assassin that proclaimed the he was one .....
"I'll go get Julian and tell him you're here." Akuma stumbled back up the stairs, to him a seemingly endless journey but he eventually made it to Julians room and pretty much just invites himself in; after Julian had changed of course. "Julian, how in hell do you get up here all the time?" He quickly jerked up and stood up straight, clutching his head in pain. "Ow! God dammit!" He screamed, before putting a fair amount of money on Julians bed. "There's my rent. It'll cover this months and last months, with a bit of extra on the top. Oh by the way some old timer and goth chick are here, humans by the scent of them. I'm guessing they're here to stay, just how you like it." Akuma rubbed his head still hung over. "I wonder if feathers is cooking up a delicious breakfast." He was obviously speaking of Maya, he licked his lips at the thought of her cooking.
OOC : after this one will be 5 posts , so no touchy DI
Pops was down stairs looking over the structure , this place was rather bright , not expectedly dreary like he thought it would be , he thought it would be an ancient castle knowing the boy's father's reputation in business , though he had a hand in any , and Pops meant any , business . He smelled some food , and Sophia was basicly back on her computer again , he could hear the tapping of the keys mixed in with the tick of his cane on this floor , which he assumed was marble flooring . He knew the smell was coming from somehwere , and the tick of his cane alerted Sophia that he was now just pacing to be doing something . Sophia had been busy finding out who these peopel really were , though her usual sources were coming up blank this time for some reason , not knowing why bugged her to no end . Pops just lit another lucky strike , and sophia turned her ear phones up louder so she could get in her rhythem to get her job done .....
A brash young man stumbled into Julian's room after he had changed and looked awfully hung over. The boy flung some money onto the bed and brought news of potential new guests, "Been at it again Akuma? So long as you pay your rent it doesn't matter. This is a place you can come back to; just make sure you don't upset Maya and Eineus okay?" he said chuckling as the young man floudered around trying to look more put together. He sorted a couple of papers on his desk and took some with him. Heading down the stairs he saw a young girl and a much older man. Julian could tell they were human from the lack of aura they had, yet something was different, a feeling of bloodlust albeit and old taste of bloodlust. Nevertheless he greeted them wholeheartedly, "Welcome to Lockworth Mansion. I am the owner Julian Lockworth. Might I ask your business here at these early hours?"
She had worked her way past stairs and corridors into the staff room and next to it was the kitchen where she saw Maya cooking away. As Eineus sorted todays roster and paperwork she spoke to Maya, "Good morning Maya. Hard at work I see." she said calmly but with happy tone.
