    Every alien is supposed to have an important mission: discovering new lifeforms, mining for resources, abducting humans... I don't. I crash landed in Maple World completely by mistake. What is my mission you ask? To eat all the fewds on every planet. If there is no fewd, then I promptly destroy the planet.

    Is it completely unnecessary to destroy planets?
    Yes... but my hangriness knows no bounds....

    SERVER - Big Leaf/NA

    Saika as a young girl grew up in the forests of Sylvan Woods, raised by many of the creatures who also share their home there. Even though there were lots of friends and family among the small forest, Saika wished for more. She dreamed of becoming a strong powerful knight one day. However, being out in the forest, she did not have a sword of her own. Until one day she decided to make her own sword out of a tree! This however did not sit well with everyone as one day she accidentally uprooted Mister Monkey's home! To this day, whenever she visits, the monkey's never let her forget the time she once used their homes as weapons.

    Server Name: Big Leaf

    Everyone looks different upon birth, some beautiful, some average and some ugly, this is a story about someone who's Butt Ugly. Bazookles was born under a family of knights renowned for not only their prowess in combat but also their looks, Bazookles on the other hand was born with the worst looks of them all but in return great strength. Although his face may be abhorrent, his skills in battle are remarkable, being able to slice and cleave through enemies with relative ease as if his blade was a hot knife and his foes were butter. After being begrudgingly enlisted by the kingdom of Tria for his knightly abilities, Bazookles set out on his quest to defeat the big bad guy who's name he forgets.

    Bazookles five favorite things are room temperature water, dirt, long walks on the dirt, yard work, and himself.

    My goal is to be the very best and rule the Maple world! I swing my greatsword nonrecklessly mind you. There's no time to waste. My story just began and I must prove to myself how to be the greatest. Do you find that funny? Well, I'm serious. Seriously going to do anything in my power for that. I am currently walking around Kerning City. I heard some bad Dark Lord or whatever is trying to be better than me. I'm here to gather evidence promptly and swiftly. I.... oooh kitty!!!

    P.S. -- I change my mind. Kitty has won. The end.

    [Agent 30801 - Log 5918] Gimo here. I was able to sneak into the Closed Beta Testing without much on a cinch. However, it seems that hiding in plain sight would be a bit more difficult without some sort of CBT hat- people were getting suspicious of me. It was rather hasty. but I crafted myself a CBT hat out of the UGC system. Not many have given much mind do it, but the more keen among the testers have been giving me suspicious looks. I feel like they might have seen through my disguise. I haven't found anything that has aroused suspicions, but I will remain vigilant to see if anything happens.

    Agent Gimo out.

    Well.. apparently the whole outfit and character designer thing is a whole lot better than I expected. Then again, I already knew it was pretty awesome beforehand.

    Good day, Maplers. My name is Lunii. I come from an alternate dimension, quite similar to yours, where our building bricks are rectangular instead of square. I fell through a dimensional crack and ended up inside the lowest floor of Ludibrium Clock Tower, where I climbed my way to the surface and began to assimilate myself into the Maple World. Nowadays I spend my time using my vast building knowledge to help construct homes in Tria.

    Soul was never the best hero, but always tried his hardest and has always had a kind and sweet heart! Most of his time is usually based around helping lower leveled players get the hang of the weapon they chose and trying to fight harder bosses. He might seem very child like and immature but can act very grown up once you get to know him better, and he will always be by your side when you need help or are in a tight spot! Soul is a clumsy boy and at times trips on his sword which leaves him in bad situations but somehow pulls through (somehow)

    There was a time when the gods and titans reign in the mortal world, a time where the strongest ones would attain glory and the weak would perish, one of these weak gods was the god of nature Miyo that did not seek to have glory but to protect the forms of life 7RQZMRS.png Miyo wanted to have a friend so he asked Sun God , but it was worthless the sun god looked down on him and told him that he was pathetic. Alone and without hope to make a friend the Moon God appers before him and ask him if they can became friendsY4nyiGU.jpg Miyo was so happy and agreed with a great smile on his face. Several weeks passed away and Moon and Miyo where still playing around thoghetter and the Sun God saw that happiness and wanted to give it an End, he was not the first several gods made jokes about those 2 calling then the group of useless gods, but Sun God was different so when moon God finnaly left Miyo for some minutes the Sun God goes near Miyo and say "there is no spot for weaklings in this realm" and finishes him off. When the Moon God get back and see Miyo's Body he can t control himself and breaks into a yelling and terrifying cry emjsuTH.png. The Moon God Swore that he would never be weak again to protect his friends and beloved ones and decided to hunt the God that killed Miyo to have his revenge, but even having this mindset the moonGod could not stop crying and with that face no one would take him serious, so he puts up a mask hunt every evil doer in this worlda and to make his enemys fear him and crumble before his eyes even in afterlife . 3SKRUUv.jpg
