Oh, about that, I'm not so sure how Soulcorruptor wants the people under the Dark One to be like, but I imagined there was a chance that perhaps the forces under the Dark One are perhaps not at all bonded, and they would easily kill their allies for the mere sake of it. Suppose that was the case, then it probably wouldn't be unusual Erica and Shen have completely not heard of each other. But I see the logic there, so lets leave it at that
And yep, I think Erica is similar in that regard. So on a personal level, it's unlikely that the two would have anything beyond a pure working relationship. At the very most, a mutual respect for the other's abilities, but no more than that unless it's expanded on in the RP.
And I'll take that, since Erica lean towards stealth missions involving information gathering and the like (assassination included). Chances are she would know of Shen's epithet, her abilities from some of her missions and maybe have worked together on some termination missions (up to you on that one). And technically, Erica isn't exactly an 'employee' per se. She follows the Dark One out of her own conviction, so she's probably more suitably called a "Follower" rather than a "Mercenary" like Shen. Just a detail to note, possibly something Shen could know, if you wish.
I am not sure how to expand upon that, as I originally had in mind to set this new guy as the big bad with our own ready made characters as protagonist stopping him from destroying reality. How to make it good is still on a working process.
I have this idea of a completely different, new character who pulls out random people from different realities to be his bodyguard while political tensions rises from his own reality and his ability to break the forbidden practice of plucking people from other universes. He pulls approximately millions of individuals from various realities (based on ORPG or new RP characters) while his rivals pluck various individuals as well to combat him. He is somewhat of an anti-hero, and uses people he pulls from these realities to do his dirty work or completely erases them from existence (including their potential alternate selves, making him really scary).
This is a building concept I had in mind, and I wanna expand more on the infinite realities that ORPG has here. :B
It's a concept of an interdimensional being who seeks to destroy reality, and pulls out protagonists from our current canons to help him hasten it but they decided to bring the fight to him before his madness destroys all their realities. Basically, anything goes and its still a young concept spawned from my desire to make a special for the RP series. I still need more research though but its just the concept.
