Calvin and Dalvin are identical twins on the opposite ends of a very long spectrum, both of whom have a far greater reach. These two Reality Stalkers travel the world in search of the things they desire most, having set upon their separate paths years ago. Occasionally they will enlist each other's help to complete a task because, despite a frigid relationship, there are not many people they would trust more, even if there are many, many others they like more Both are enterprising businessmen - Calvin on the legitimate side, Dalvin on the criminal side, but their shared interest is the mysteries of the Supernal.

"In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” ― Charles Darwin


Description


He is a physically fit black man that stands just over six feet tall with a low mustache and beard that is speckled with gray. He moves fluidly and keeps to himself, tending to fade into the background rather than stand out.


Roleplay Hooks


  • Chicago: Calvin and Dalvin are from Chicago, new to Fallcoast. Feel free to talk about stuff that's going down.
  • Business: Calvin is a businessman always in the mood to hear about investing in or improving businesses. If you have a proposal - or a problem, Calvin is available. If you're looking for a job, Calvin can get you something on the island or Dalvin can get you work on the streets.
  • Galaxy: Calvin's corporation owns and runs the nightclub, Galaxy, at the Syzygy Island resort. Dalvin does much of his business through Galaxy, taking advantage of his brother's loyalty and the resort's high security.
  • The Good Life: Through his resort connections, Calvin has the hook ups for most of the amenities on the island.
  • Crime: Dalvin doesn't think much of laws. If you need a freelance merc to do some law breaking, Dalvin is available.
  • Discounts: Do you need something cheap? Dalvin can find the best deals on goods and services.
  • Procurement: Dalvin can get you practically anything you want for the best prices. So if there's something you want see him.
  • Doing things: I definitely prefer RP in which I can do things. Basic chit chat is what it is, but it is not really my jam.
  • The Question: One question that inevitably comes up is: Are Calvin and Dalvin ever seen together?
  • The Answer: Yes. Not always, because their interests are very different and sometimes directly opposed, but enough. See Galaxy, above.
  • Teams: Both twins have a team of people that work with them to accomplish tasks effectively and efficiently. They'll often outsource their talents to those who could use the services of the people on their teams.



  • Contact Info: I'm freely open to anyone being able to get Calvin or Dalvin's contact info. A simple message service in Chicago allows for them to get any message. Feel free to have your character know any or all of any of the above information in order to have a reason to get together for a scene. The purpose of this is to freely facilitate RP scenes.



  • Supernaturals: Neither Calvin nor Dalvin are super protective of being a supernatural when it comes to other supernaturals. If you aren't vanilla mortal, feel free to set up a short back story about how we might know each other and get the awkward 'pretend to be mortal' dance out of the way. I greatly prefer that. I spend enough OOC time being a vanilla mortal who has conversations with other vanilla mortals all on my own.
  • Approachable?: Are you approachable about your supernatural nature? Dalvin is in the habit of approaching anyone supernatural and letting them know that he knows because he is one too. (Allowance made for RP purposes.) I know some spheres / characters wouldn't volunteer that information on their own. Completely understandable. If you would prefer Dalvin contact you to start the conversation, let me know. He will. (Also, please be willing to have that conversation, not just a long series of denials. That defeats the purpose. Thanks.)
  • Supernal Vision: The Supernal Vision (Prime 1) spell makes it very easy to identify who is and is not a vanilla mortal. This is a quick and dirty way to faciliatate the above scenarios.
  • Mage: Feel free to chat about the Supernal (theory, practice, magecraft, etc...) with either Empyrean (Calvin) or Eclipse (Dalvin).
  • Adventures: Eclipse (Dalvin) is the one to go to if you have an adventure you might want help with. He's a jack of all trades and can always find a way to help.
  • Research: Empyrean (Calvin) is a research oriented mage, especially if time is of the essence. He can get results much faster than most if necessary.
  • Guardians of the Veil: Both Empyrean and Eclipse are Guardians of the Veil with very different philosophies, Calvin being the more traditional of the pair. Officially, Calvin and Dalvin are lowly messengers in the Order who facilitate communication between entities. They do take on other responsibilities form time to time on their own. Dalvin takes more risks and handles extreme measures in breaches of the veil. Calvin manages the day to day maintaining and protection of mortals form the Supernal. However they will team up if/when necessary.


 

Soundtrack

I'm sorry if I seem uninterested
Or I'm not listenin' or I'm indifferent
Truly, I ain't got no business here
But since my friends are here
I just came to kick it but really
I would rather be at home all by myself not in this room
With people who don't even care about my well being

People told me slow my roll
I'm screaming out fuck that
I'mma do just what I want
Looking ahead no turning back
If I fall, if I die
Know I lived it to the fullest
If I fall, if I die
Know I lived and missed some bullets

"Our real estate firm says opportunity's arousing
To make some condos out of low-income housing
Immediately, we need some media heat
To say that gangs run the street and then we bring in the police fleet
Harass and beat everybody til they look inebriated
When we buy the land, motherfuckas will appreciate it
Don't worry about the Urban League or Jesse Jackson
My man that owns Marlboro donated a fat sum."
That's when I stepped back some to contemplate what few know
Sat down, wrestled with my thoughts like a sumo
Ain't no one player that could beat this lunacy
Ain't no hustler on the street could do a whole community

The mic check is life or death, breathing a sniper's breath
I exhale the yellow smoke of buddha through righteous steps
Deep like The Shinin', sparkle like a diamond
Sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket lining

It's been three weeks since you were looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again
'Member when he told you he was 'bout the Benjamins?
You act like you ain't hear him, then give him a little trim
To begin, how you think you're really gon' pretend
Like you wasn't down and you called him again?
Plus, when you give it up so easy you ain't even foolin' him
If you did it then, then you'd probably fuck again
Talking out your neck, sayin' you're a Christian
A Muslim, sleeping with the gin
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who you gon' tell when the repercussions spin?
Showing off your ass cause you're thinkin' it's a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it cause I'm truly genuine
Don't be a hard rock when you really are a gem

I see no changes, all I see is racist faces
Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
We under, I wonder what it takes to make this
One better place, let's erase the wasted
Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
'Cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
And only time we chill is when we kill each other
It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other

Tell me what you gon' do to me
Confrontation ain't nothin' new to me
You can bring a bullet, bring a sword
Bring a morgue, but you can't bring the truth to me
Fuck you and all your expectations
I don't even want your congratulations
I recognize your false confidence and calculated promises
All in your conversation

(Cause ain't no such things as halfway crooks)
(Scared to death, they scared to look)

For all of those, who wanna profile and pose
Rock you in your face, stab your brain with your nose bone
You all alone in these streets, cousin
Every man for they self in this land we be gunning
And keep them shook crews running, like they supposed to
They come around but they never come close to
I can see it inside your face, you're in the wrong place
Cowards like you just get they whole body laced up
With bullet holes and such
Speak the wrong words man and you will get touched
You can put your whole army against my team and
I guarantee you it'll be your very last time breathing
Your simple words just don't move me, you're minor, we're major
You're all up in the game and don't deserve to be a player
Don't make me have to call your name out
Your crew is featherweight, my gunshots'll make you levitate


Connections

Calvin: Love you like a sister. Thank you for coming with me. We make a great team.

Dalvin: There is nothing great about settling for a life less than the one you're capable of having. You deserve better.
Julia3.jpg

Calvin: Helped her with a few retrievals. I appreciate her willingness to take risks.

Dalvin: She's held it down like a soldier. The city should be thankful. Spoiler alert: It won't be.
Connell004.jpg

Calvin: He's put his life on the line for his country. I don't doubt he'll do the same for all of humanity.

Dalvin: Don't know him but I've heard good things.
RauriS 3.jpg

Calvin: She's my contact for all things spirit, able to produce result. I appreciate her greatly.

Dalvin: She's not like other wolves I've known. She can be human when she needs to be. If only the rest of humanity could do the same.

Dalvin: I can't really pin down his moods and he might have a chip on his shoulder. It hasn't gotten in the way of getting any jobs done. As long as it never does, he's double aces in my book.

Calvin: He's a pretty solid pillar in what seems to be a house of cards of a Consilium. Never understimate strength regardless of what distractions come with it.
