Resubmitted

Name/Stagename: Light Hope/Lightning (Her friends only ever call her Lightning, same with her fans. Only her parents ever have called her by her real name.)
Instrument: Guitar, Electric (Secondary Singing [singing chorus so to speak])
Gender: Female
Age: 22
BF/GF: None as of yet
~Extra: She is generally straight though rumors in the crowd question the opposite.
Biography: Lightning has a typical "Out-of-Control" attitude on stage, but at points she will flat-line and lose complete control. When she was young, her big brother had always played the guitar, both for fun and for profit. One day, her brother had walked away from home with a destiny and left his guitar at Lightnings feet. The guitar was not all that he left her though. He left her the words; "Strive for more, and when you get there, keep rising. There is never a limit to the greatness you can achieve!" Those words rung in her mind even today as she plays. She met law when she was a bit younger, playing a guitar in the middle of town, drawing a crowd. Law was supposedly impressed by her aptitude for it, back then since she was a solo artist she would play while singing songs with her music by herself. Once she joined the band, she was curious as the bitterness between Law and his brother, taking an interest in the twos bickering. Though she had not often expressed it, she had a decisive affection toward his brother as she could be caught staring at him during gigs. While she had affection toward him, she never understood how he felt exactly which naturally resulted in him not noticing her as such.
Legendary Title: Lightning never shines brighter then when her solo point comes in the middle of a song. Her fingers will tend to move on their own and her eyes will shut tight as if closing herself off to everyone else around her and letting the chill of metals call embrace her. To some who claim to watch very carefully, it's said that they can see a dragon of lightning circling her and rising during her more intense solos. This very action is the reason she recieved the stage title: "Lightning, the Dragon of Metal"

I disappeared, I had something going on at the time. We can recycle the idea by recreating the band, possibly with fresh members. If nobody else wants to post a CS and join then we'll scrap it. If others join then we'll work on opening.

(please log in to view the image)

Name/Stagename: Kelevra/Synn
Instrument: Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
Gender: Male
Age: 25
BF/GF: None, as of this moment
Bio: Synn was raised in a small town in Kansas called Lawrence, where he grew up in a normal suburban family with a normal suburban life. Well... Somewhat normal. He took up the guitar at 14 to impress his then girlfriend, Alexia, and bought an old acoustic from one of his friends. He grew to enjoy playing so much that he quickly improved, and began playing songs for his friends when they had camping trips and other such parties. When he was 21, Alexia was killed in an automobile accident, at which point he began to smoke and drink regularly in an attempt to mask the pain. At 23, he came out of this dark point in his life when he began to play his music again, though something was different about it, now. When it had been upbeat, somewhat campy at first, everything he played now had a dark, twisted feel to it. He traded in his old acoustic at a local shop and paid the extra off on a new electric guitar and an amp. He started playing rhythm and a bit of lead with his new electric, the damages to his voice from years of abuse putting a distinctive rasp into his voice. His once clear vocals became gritty, and he began incorporating a sort of growl to his lyrics [OOC Creator's Note: Something like... Think similar to Disturbed, Korn, Godsmack... Avenged Sevenfold... >.>] that led him to write many newer, darker songs than ever before. He has since quit binge drinking or chain smoking, though he still enjoys a night of drinking once in a while, and is rarely seen without a pack of cigarettes in his pocket.

Revision

"Fate:Forsaken". They were a normal metal band, a group of friends and rivals, just starting to play in bigger concerts. It was in their biggest gig up till then that it happened. Was it the intense music? The bond of friendship between the band members? The roaring chants of the crowd? No matter what was the cause, it happened. The smoke generator that the band used in their entrances went haywire and the stage disappeared in darkness. When everything finally cleared up again, the band was gone. Neither they nor their instruments remained. All that was left on the stage was an unknown symbol that had been etched into it. And then, even the stage itself burned to ashes before anybody could take a closer look at the mysterious symbol on it. As Earth slowly began to forget what was thought about as an experiment to see if a band's early and dramatic disappearance could further sales, the band emerged in a different world.

That was the story anyways... But something changed overtime, something that nobody expected. They failed. The band had gone up against the greatest force that could be mustered against them and in the end, they were overwhelmed. Though most of them escaped unharmed, the booming force that had brought them together had fallen. The allies rallied around him to try and bring him back, back to the world of humans in a last ditch effort to escape Tenac's vicious enemies. But it was too late - and they were surrounded. Pulled away from their leader, the band could not keep itself together and eventually fell apart. Well... Save for one ambitious fool-hearted girl...

This world, known as Tenac, could be seen as a medieval world if it weren't for one thing: here, good music kills stuff. Well, alright. Bad music does as well. Don't ask me why. It just works like that. Has for centuries, will for centuries.
After the first wave failure, those that survived returned to Earth, leaving a single door way back to Tenac to be used only once more - on the return trip back to Tenac. However, the only ones who know of this door way are the surviving band members. This hole is hidden away inside of Fate:Forsaken's "Garage", which is now watched over and maintained by Lightning.

Of course instruments don't make the same sounds and neither do they create the same effects in this strange world. Here follows a CS and a list of the roles:

CS:
(Place img here. I'd prefer anime. Instrument can but doesn't have to be included.)
Name/Stagename: (State both. Nicknames will be made by other players as it would happen in real life.)
Instrument: (Yes it comes second, that's how important it is. Please don't state any specifics, brand name etc. Just what you play.)
Gender: (No questions I hope.)
Age: (Between 16 and 22. This band is youg and so are it's members.) (BROKEN! Feel free to be any age.)
BF/GF: (I am not homophobic and will kill anyone who is, so do not fear if you want to pursue a non-hetero relationship. ^^)
Bio: (Just a para or two, why did you join the band etc. And when I say one or two, I mean one is min and two is max. Giant bios are a pain.) (Two Para limit is fine, but now the bio should be more what leads you to the band)

Roles:
Vocalist
One would assume that this profession is the easiest because everyone has a voice. But it is quite the opposite. As a vocalist you need incredible charisma. Your voice needs to twist the minds and souls of your enemies from the first to the last lyric. It needs to ring true to your allies and friends. Though they are also capable warriors, their voices breaking the enemy mentally and physically. Before anything else, a vocalist is a shining beacon for their army, leading those following them to victory with hymns that will often be accompanied by the chants of the crowd, increasing the effect.
Increases allied morale and decreases that of the enemy to the point where weaker troops will either switch sides or commit suicide, realizing they cannot stand against such power.
!NEW! Background Vocals boost the intensity of the music, raising its power much like a 'Buff'.

Guitarist
They are known for working alone more often than any other role. But this doesn't mean that they don't work well with the others. Commonly standing by the vocalist to follow them into the depth of frontline combat, guitarists tear apart the enemy with riffs and chords. Using the brute, overwhelming force of their guitars, they sunder flesh and shatter bone. But if you think that that is all that they can do, then you are sorely mistaken. When they have some free space and time in the heat of battle, guitarists will often take a moment to gather themselves before unleashing a solo, a piece of art that for it's duration is louder than any other noise, not permitting anyone to share with it this moment of glory.
Simply destroys the enemy. Should they remain standing at the end of an attack, the enemies are most probably stunned. Will easily overrun any position held by weaker troops, leaving behind a trail of chaos and obliteration.
!NEW! Backup Guitar does not deal the damage of the Lead Guitarist, but rather applies Stun. No Solos.

Bassist
You do not notice the figure that calmly walks the battlefield until it's too late. They don't seem as threatening as the gods of war that storm through your lines with similar weapons, so you ignore them. But then you turn back to the flank that you left unwatched after a while and realize that it's gone. Next you will start to notice the tone hidden underneath all others. A deep sound, ominous and foreboding. Then you connect the two events and fear grips you. As the figure closes in on his louder friends, their chords seem even more devastating. Finally your brain connects all the loose end and calculates the outcome of this. Defeat, followed by death.
Amplifies other musical roles while steadily and subtly wearing down the enemy. Only rarely uses actual attack chords and almost never lets loose a solo on the enemy. But those few moments are filled with people being blown into bloody pieces and spattered across the battlefield.

Drummer
Having tamed a beast to carry them and their equipment, Drummers advance across the battlefield on it's back. Their attacks rumble throughout the fields of blood, shockwaves rushing out from them, pummeling all that stand in the way. But staying in a distance to escape the havoc wreaked by beast and rider isn't a solution either. For drummers have an uncanny ability. They focus the energy of their solid beat and send it into the sky. With a one final flourish of their drumsticks they then send it crashing down upon whoever believe themselves safe by staying away like a coward.
Responsible for damage on a wide area. Whether they are crushing all that is gathered around their mount or they are eliminating the little ants that scuttle about in the distance, it doesn't matter. Before the drums, all are equal, none are spared.

Keyboarder
The fingers move swiftly across the keys. Such elegance can only be that of the keyboarder as they play a piece to add to the music played all over. The effect even less noticeable than that of the Bassist at first, the melody played from behind the lines doesn't damage the enemy, not directly. But, unbeknownst to them, their strikes are weaker, their armour more brittle than before. The work of the keyboarder is the weakening of the enemy. Some may think this task unimportant but that opinion will rapidly change when they watch a horde of massive brutes turn into a bunch of harmless additions to target practice.
Debuffs are the region this role specializes in. Though also capable of attacking it's main personal combat weapon is the power to play until the opponent has been turned into an insult to any halfway decent warrior. This indirect form of combat is not to be underestimated, lest one wishes to be soundly defeated.
