True... A blend sounds good. ^_^
Overexposure to James Blunt? Oh my... XD
And, Ventratta sounds like he'd make a good addition... ^_^
I gotta say, I'm all for the comedy, but I'd LOVE to add some real horror bits. With overblown suspense and stuff.
*Possibly should not have watched the Da Vinci Code*
THE PENTAGRAMS! THE FIBONNACHI! THE OVEREXPLAINATION OF EVERYTHING!
As much fun as that may be, I'd much prefer to stay away from the blood, saliva, and spinal fluids of the other murder mystery. Suspense is fun. Cracked skulls are not. *shrugs* It's better if it's not all comedy, though... it is a murder mystery, after all.
And now, for my excessively long description of Sev (itemized lists and works cited page are still being printed):
Sev's personality- Snarky, sarcastic phoenix who loves to complain. The only one he really listens to is Ikkin, and while he may grumble about the people he has to ressurrect, he never really objects to doing it- it's more of a "this AGAIN? " thing. He's fairly irritable as a rule, and isn't afraid to blast people who annoy him with fire... though, he doesn't mind setting things right if Ikkin asks. He's a bit of a pyromaniac.
The bond - Ikkin and Sev are tied together by a soul-bond, which is the reason why Ikkin alone can summon and control Sev (in most cases). Sev himself is not really a living being- he is a construct of the pure cyberspace around the edges of the NTWF, which tends to form itself into different creatures and objects based on the thoughts and memories of the forumers who live there. Basically, it's like the Underdeep, except that it is less likely to draw out fears in order to create them, and more likely to create strange and fantastic buildings and creatures out of things that once existed in the forum, but no longer do, memories and dreams of forumers, etc. Being one of these constructs, however, Sev is not truly immortal- if he is killed, he will ressurect as a phoenix does, but he'll be 'reset,' remembering nothing, not necessarily keeping the same personality, etc.
Sev's status as a 'real creature' can only be given by being known to the forumers... which caused him to make himself known, and allowed Ikkin to find him. If he wasn't known, he could easily fade away like the other constructs, and he knows enough to want to avoid that. This is part of the reason that he agreed to bond himself to Ikkin - if he is bonded to Ikkin, a person who actually exists, the world is forced to accept his existance along with hers... and, thus, he is a real phoenix in all senses.
The bond between the two is best understood as a soul bond, because the core of Sev's being (the part that resets itself if he dies) might as well be the same as a soul. Sev bound himself to Ikkin by putting part of his soul in her (don't worry, he didn't have to kill anyone to do it j;) ), which anchors him down, and prevents the 'resetting' that he'd have to face otherwise. It also makes the two closer in other ways, giving both a better understanding and respect of each other, forcing Sev to keep Ikkin alive no matter what, and allowing Ikkin to call Sev whenever she needs him.
So, if Sev starts disobeying Ikkin, it would have interesting implications- Sev's soul would be in conflict with itself (since part of it is with Ikkin), and Ikkin would have a part of disobedient phoenix in her... which could easily have the consequence that both Sev and Ikkin become unstable and lash out much more easily. Also, since Sev's soul is tied to Ikkin's, it could start pulling at hers, which would further mess her up. Of course, in normal circumstances, neither of them would want this, and would try to avoid it by any means possible... though, outside factors could interfere, of course.
