Pervasive Tropes:

This category lists any idea or concept within the setting of Origins in general which is significant or important enough to be of specific note.

  • All Myths Are True: While not a 100% guarantee within the world of Origins, you're damn sure not to doubt some ancient book of fairy tales when there's a fae creature about to kick your ass.
  • Bunny Ears Lawyer: As may be obvious from the other tropes on this page,Psi-7 isn't exactly the most normal bunch of people. It would honestly take less time to name the characters who don't fall under this trope. But to give just a few examples, we've had, at one time or another:
    • One of the most brilliant minds on the planet, who also happens to be insane and rather childish.
    • A cockney man with a heart of gold who can't read but is worryingly good at killing and interrogating.
    • A woman who has the ability to discern the compositions of anomalous materials but hates the fact that they're anomalous.
    • A conman who is unable to keep his passions in check.
    • A self-described "prophet".
  • Da Chief: There have been multiple characters like this over the course of Origins' run. They can frequently be found chewing out Psi-7 for their incredible track record for performing acts of great stupidity. It's unknown whether the GMs enjoy berating the characters, or whether it's just become commonplace.
  • Lots And Lots Of Characters: It's an open RP, what were you expecting.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The literal definition of Psi-7. They come from all walks of life, and they get the job done, but their (apparent) successes are often accompanied with explosions, lots of shooting, and just mayhem in general.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: This might as well be Psi-7's modus operandi, given the frequency that this trope comes into play.
    • How often? Put it this way: The out-of character chat's bot has a list for keeping track of what the task-force has blown up. And it got so full that a second one had to be created. And then a third.
  • The Fifties: The setting of the entire RP. Back when it started in late 2013, it was late 1954. As the setting is moving in real time, it is early 1957 as of the real time of early 2016.


This category lists anything noteworthy that came up in a particular run or event.

  • And I Must Scream: There is quite literally a run called this. It was preceded by this run. Aside from this, there is multiple instances of this trope being in play throughout the role-play.
  • Noodle Incident: "Queen of Tears" is this to literally the entirety of Psi-7, or at least to the characters who know about it. Aside from this, these are liable to come up both as result of character backstories and older players recounting old events or jokes that newer players don't understand.
  • Our Fairies Are Different: The fairy queen is actually an abomination who wants to do something horrible to the whole world, and many of her servants are doll like begins who have been known disguise themselves as humans.


Active Characters:
Inactive & Retired Characters:


The Unseelie Queen/The Violet Queen

The Whale King/The Scarlet King

The Father of All the Sea

  • Eldritch Abomination: As revealed when Elanor used Lucifer's Insight on it, it was originally a cosmic being killed by five other cosmic beings.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: Seen both working for and against the Whale King, without any reason given.
  • Hive Mind: Every part of its body, from the green sludge to the animals it infects, are controlled by it.

SCP-542 ("Herr Chirurg")

  • Affably Evil: He remorselessly kills people for their organs and physically assaults anomalous Foundation agents to crack their skulls open like eggs and determine what makes them tick, but he also loves to dance, enjoys fine music, and loves to talk (even if he is a bit cryptic).
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Chirurg is just shy of seven-feet tall, and Emily (one of his few friends) is a little over five feet.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Incredibly tall, with spindly arms and legs, a distended stomach and hunched back. His fingers have way too many joints, his eyes don't match up, and his organ systems have almost next to nothing to do with any normal human's.
  • Mad Doctor: Embodied.
  • Really Seven Hundred Years Old: Chirurg has been infamously private about his age; though he stated remembering the Franco-Prussian War, which would place him at over 150 years old. That being said, given his appearance, it's pretty difficult to tell how old he really is.
  • Slasher Smile: Oh god. It's all he does.
  • Was Once A Man: And still is, in a really loose sense of the word.
