        Aspirations
        • The world needs more heroes. Juiblex wants to groom a few out from society's dregs, even if he has to cheat here and there.
        • Gain control of a local street gang to help influence the area where needed.
        • Build a safe haven for not just demons, but mortals as well, that's free of the God-Machine.

        Covers
        • Jubei Goto (7) -- Giant, middle-aged, Japanese Bouncer

        Backstory
        It sucks when the world turns against you. That’s what Juiblex found out when he fell from grace. Created to protect a single mortal in Tokyo Metropolis, the Guardian could adapt to any situation with literal flexibility and strength. His charge, a man by the name of Yoshiro Morimoto, was an industrial engineer working on various projects across the city. Juiblex was never told why he needed protection. That wasn’t the point. All he needed to know and do was keep the mortal safe until further notice.

        Things began to fall apart a month after arrival. One night, Yoshiro went to visit his brother Genki (at the behest of their mother). Unfortunately, he found his brother being browbeaten by a local group of Yakuza just outside Genki’s apartment complex. Unable to sit by, Yoshiro forced Juiblex (under the guise of best friend Jubei Goto) to save his brother.
        As it turns out, the local Yakuza were extorting money from the surrounding neighborhoods, particularly those with small businesses. Requests made to the police were met with little-to-no success, leaving most of the victims stranded and unable to pay protection money. With his brother refusing to abandon his beloved home, Yoshiro requested both he and Juiblex spend the next day over. Sure enough, the Yakuza returned, and were ready for a fight. It was only when one of the gangers began using lethal weapons that Juiblex was forced to kill. This would prove to be the angel’s biggest mistake, and one he regrets even to this day.

        Though he had altered the brothers’ memories to depict the thugs fleeing the scene, the Yakuza were not so easily manipulated. With a vengeance, the Yakuza began targeting everything related to Genki. Family members wound up dead, coworkers disappeared. Eventually, it seemed as though both brothers were doomed to a slow and agonizing death of spirit. Juiblex knew that this was his own fault, but also knew that standing by Yoshiro would not protect him in the long run. Hesitantly, the guardian ran off to deal with the head of the snake.

        In just one night, the local boss had a “change of heart”, ceasing further harassment of the Morimoto Family. But the damage was already done. When Juiblex returned, he found the brothers dead in a pool of their own blood, Yoshiro laid out as though shielding his brother’s body. It then dawned on the angel that, for all his dedication to protecting Yoshiro, Juiblex could never have succeeded without being in two places at once. How could the God Machine expect him to? It must have, why else throw in so much time and effort just to have it all fail? Was he meant to fail? Was the death and torment of good people just a sort of necessary cruelty? No, if that was the truth, the angel would have no part of it. This sick corruption of the same ideals built into him was repulsive, and as he fell, Juiblex vowed to find a hell where both he and those worthy of him would find sanctuary, till the day from which a world of heroes would emerge.

              Mr. Thorn (Destroyer/Saboteur) was charged with missions where reputations and fortunes needed to be destroyed nearly as often as ones where people and places 'simply' needed to be rendered down into their component pieces. His freshly-fallen natural form is that of a nearly man-shaped tangle of fractal-edged razor wire that coils and gyres around a core of headache-inducing visual static. An asssassin's body, he can thread himself through astonishingly small openings and penetrate into the most secure parts of an enemy's stronghold. When it comes time to destroy a target, hellish razor wire snares the target, dragging it into Mr. Thorn's nightmarishly gnashing core.

                Mr.Caliber

                Mr. Caliber's function while a thrall of the Machine was to act as a highly mobile ranged combat platform, and even after Falling he still performs much of the same function for the Agency he is affiliated with. Caliber resembles a massive black and red cybernetic centipede-like creature bristling with various implements for ranged combat. Explosive spines run along the entire length of the fifteen foot long creepy crawler beginning from the base of its head and ending at its tail. These spines function as an emergency anti-personnel ranged weapon should hostiles get too close, and they possess a hollow structure that's filled with a potent organically produced toxin. These aren't the only weapons the demon has at his disposal, and along his body is a high caliber mounted gun capable of traveling up and down his long back thanks to a mechanized track system, allowing him to be able to fire at targets regardless of his body's position. But perhaps the creature's greatest weapon is a small scale artillery weapon built into it's bulbous head, allowing the demon to lodge explosive shells into the midst of targets or to destroy heavily protected enemies/structures. Caliber isn't entirely helpless at close range should his munitions fail him; his many legs are razor sharp and make for effective melee weapons in a pinch, and he possesses a pair of huge and toxic steel mandibles that are easily capable of shearing through flesh or light armor- though close combat is not something he particularly enjoys. Fortunately Caliber does possess the ability to camouflage himself and is a surprisingly fast while in demon form and is easily capable of monitoring enemy chatter and actions thanks to his highly receptive Antennae, allowing him to usually keep out of the sight or range of most targets.. at least until he is ready to strike.

                  Just a fun thought: a fractal-edged sword would be basically a pool noodle, an incredibly soft one depending on how far the fractal extended. Not to say it wouldn't necessarily cut, but there would be no perceivable edge on the thing that [theoretically, taken to an extreme] could divide molecules.

                    I was making me and my mates as characters for each 2e gameline, with demon we ended up with the forms of:
                    Emoangel
                    Blade Hand, Night Vision, Fast Attack, Aura Sight, Inhuman Beauty, Wings, Wound Healing
                    Once an assassin for god who fell when their guilt brought her to attempt her own destruction. She now appears as a beautiful female angel with eyes which radiate hungry darkness. Her skin is covered in scars and cuts, many of which still drip with blood. Sticking out of one of the angel's many injuries is the handle of a massive straight razor, which she slides out of herself to use in battle.


                    Black Hole/0.68
                    Unyeilding Vice, Low Density, Limb Retractor, Mirrored Skin, Environmental Resistance, Teleportation, Cavernous Maw
                    Originally designed to broadcast a specific set of gravity waves (now known as GW150914) for scientists to discover once humanity becomes technologically advanced enough to receive such a broadcast, this angel fell when he travelled to earth to try and discover the results of it's work. This demon is technically invisible and only visible in that the effect of it's gravity faintly distorting a region of the background. Sometimes the distortion appears to have pseudopods for manipulating objects, other times it appears to just be an orb.

                    Pixel
                    Claws and Fangs, Slippery Body, Lighting, Clairvoyant Sight, Laser Cutter, Wings, Insect Swarm
                    Originally made to observe a cult and reproduce the sigils they create in certain locations in the form of light projections, this unchained's body is a conscious swarm of bioluminescent "insects". The actual biology of these insects do not match that of any terrestrial invertebrate that it can uncover through research. When multiple members of the swarm physically interlock their bioluminescent organs, the light produced by said organs acts as an effective laser.

                    Incubus
                    Claws and Fangs, Sonic Acuity, Advanced Optics, Barbed Tail, Inhuman Beauty, Teleportation, Body Modification
                    The incubus claims to have inspired many cult leaders throughout history, often complaining about the amount of surveillance work he had to do to know the perfect appearance and mannerisms he would need to utilise to get them to do has the God-Machine desired. He has a rather archetypical demon appearance with horns, forked tail, pointed ears and pitch black eyes with no whites, but otherwise his appearance changed to suit his needs.

                    Minotaur
                    Armoured Plates, Blade Hand, Electrical Sight, Inhuman Strength, Blind Sense, Glory and Terror, Plasma Drive, Dataform (Terrible Form 1)
                    Programmed to protect server-room underneath a prodigious university, the minotaur fought off intruders effortlessly by travelling through the maze of servers to always appear behind the victims back ready to cleave them in twain. She has the body of a robotic minotaur and is able to convert both herself and her axe into machine code.

                      The Butcher

                      The Butcher was an unrelenting killing machine for high-value targets: when he was sent to take care of someone, it meant the target or someone close to the target was dangerous.
                      Now, this Destroyer destroys infrastructure and hunts down Angels, to strike against the G-M.
                      Imagine a four-armed humanoid being, with hooked and curved blades instead of hands, an eyeless, smooth elongated grey hull for a head, with colorful lights blinking deep within,digitigrade legs and black, fuming exhaust pipes portruding from the back. Then throw out half the flesh and replace it with metal, pneumatic motors for muscles and microchips-like structures all over the skin. Speaking of which, instead of skin, have a smooth, thin sheet of a semi-transparent, blackish alloy. The chest glows with a deep blue hue. The teeth are a blackish-green metal, and a sort of clear, slightly yellow oil flows from the mouth like saliva from a rabid animal's.

                        Mr. Maw

                        Mr. Maw is a Psychopomp who's original mission was to dismantle decommissioned pieces of Infrastructure, converting their physical components back into Occult energy in order to be carted off and used for other Projects ( such as using said energy to fill an arcane battery for example), and the angel accomplished this by one of the most straightforward methods possible: eating said Infrastructure. This eventually led to the psychopomps' Fall as it began to develop a taste for LIVING Infrastructure and attacked a fellow angel with the intention of eating them. Mr. Maw is now a connoisseur of occult creatures and how their supernatural nature makes their flesh taste, and is constantly searching for particularly potent, or even just interesting beings to add to his next dish - a Tempter of the most morbid manner.

                        In Demonic Form Mr. Maw is a nightmare to behold- an embodiment of consumption that has long since outgrown any logical purpose other than consumption for its own sake. Impossibly tall, Maw's true form is relatively humanoid in stature, though freakishly thin to the point beyond malnourished - it seems to posses almost no internal organs and resembles a skin-covered skeleton. Pale white-grey flesh clings to its bones and is crisscrossed with hundreds of what appear to be autopsy scars, some seeping with a horrific smelling red-black ichor on occasion as the creature exerts itself - threatening to apparently split open at any moment if pushed too hard. This might be disturbing enough, but the creature's face is what helps make the demon even more nightmarish: While similar in structure to a human cranium, this infernal abomination lacks many structures that a person's head possesses - namely visible ears or a nose, and its mouth is little more than a gaping, jawless hole ringed with dozens of metallic, shark-like teeth, much like a lamprey almost. The eyes however, they are perhaps one of the most horrific aspects to its face, being empty sockets filled with more human-esque metal teeth and strange meat-cable structures that resemble tongues; it is with these eye-mouths that the demon speaks to its victims/ companions.

                        Should the creature be threatened, or should it be attempting to capture its current prey item, the numerous scars will split open to reveal its various ( and revolting) natural weapons. Erupting along it's arms are hundreds of metal spikes, or teeth, that allow it to happily shred most victims in close range, and should it be surrounded by multiple targets many of the suture scars can rip open to reveal dozens of smaller, gnashing mouths to help fend off ( and get a small taste of) anyone foolish enough to try to grapple with the fiend. These mouths and teeth can do more than just shred the body of a victim, and the creature can easily drain supernatural energies from those it is able to tear into. The creature isn't totally helpess at range however, and is more than capable of spitting globs of its highly corrosive bile with surprising accuracy despite it's apparent lack of eyes. Should a victim attempt to run away, or is too exhausted to fight back any longer, one of the scars along the monster's nearly non-existent abdomen will split open and inexplicable lengths of fleshy viscera will fly free, entangling the poor sod and dragging them towards Mr. Maw. Once pulled close enough, the entirety of Maw's upper body will then burst, unfurling like an obscene fleshy flower filled with metal fangs, snapping up the unfortunate creature and attempting to devour the wretch whole.

                          Ms. Seeker

                          One of the very rare and mysterious Analysts the being formerly known as 451-IoS-1b5Cj-03, or 451 for short, Fell during her very first Mission after she was created. Built to observe and analyze the progress of a minor God Machine cult that had infiltrated a construction crew in order to craft a newly commissioned office building into a conduit for generating a canopy of conformity and mathematical efficiency for the purpose of cultivating an environment well suited to prepare the eventual tenants for the God-Machine's designs. Everything unraveled near the very end of 451's mission as without warning a Destroyer materialized within the building on the day that the office opened, a creature of flame and biomechanical brutality who proceeded to immolate everything in the building - from the smallest filing cabinet to the largest screaming employee. 451 was shocked by this scene of savage violence; in the few months that she had been operational she had never seen so much as a person's fist raised against another in anger ( though she did observe of the everyday frustrations and annoyances that all workers go through), and the sight of everything she had been part of, if only indirectly, burn to a cinder was far too much for her highly limited emotional stated to handle and she Fell, fleeing far from the blazing wreckage as possible. Now Ms. Seeker plies her skills for her Agency, analyzing data and monitoring other Agents - acting as a sort of Mission Control for many of her comrades.

                          While it's not utilized often, Seeker's Demonic form is very much a tool of surveillance and intelligence gathering. What makes it somewhat unique among Analysts is that it is noticeably humanoid, though its human features are slightly hidden beneath heavy cybernetic enhancements. Pallid and slight, at a distance and in poor lighting the demon could possibly be mistaken for a slightly sickly woman, though once one gets close enough her inhumanity is immediately apparent. Mechanical imaging devices take the place of eyes and her hair has been replaced by bundles of fiber-optic cable that trail down the demon's back, along with several metal plates and circuitry bolted into her skull. Besides the largely human-like face of the demonic form, the majority of her body is mechanical with numerous highly advanced bio-spiritual technologies geared towards gathering information and communication incorporated into it, such as a sophisticated radio suite built into her back, a telepathic scanning system along with a cognitive interface tool ( which takes the form of one of Seeker's hair-cables that possesses a jack at the end), and an extensive information database on the occult workings of the God-Machine.

                          There is more to Seeker's demonic body than intelligence gathering tools, and her body possesses a potent, if short-ranged teleportation web that takes the appearance of glowing green lines of hard-light that manifests along her armor before each jump. In addition, the young analyst has a small, yet potent generator deep within her body that allows her to provide energy to any machinery she may need to power as well as offering her a method of defending herself if she ever is found in the undesirable position of being in a violent confrontation on the rare occasions she is actually in the field - an outcome she is very keen on avoiding if at all possible. Not only that, her generator doubles as an EMP emitter should the need arise, allowing her to act as a rather effective saboteur in matters involving the sabotage of important machinery or computer systems integral to the plans of the God-Machine.
