Who says there's no such thing as monsters?
Bested in combat, two great beasts, a mortally wounded Machinedramon and dying Kimeramon cross one anothers path and in an attempt to save themselves, Joint Progress Digivolution. In the process, a rift opened up revealing the Digital World to the people of Tokyo. The Joint Progress Digivolution gave birth to Millenniummon, a monster whose power warped and disfigured the world from which its birth revealed to Tokyo.
No word of any abnomalies were reported the next day, but a group of those who were Chosen to soon combat the terror of another world would recieve a partner to aid in their quest.

of varying color.
The creatures refered to themselves as Digital Monsters or Digimon for short. They bore no recollection of their journey to the Material World, but what they did have was the name of their partner who would aid in the liberating of their world.
Meanwhile, in an area seperate yet apart of the Digital World, beneath black waters an ancient and forgotten evil begins to stir, its slumber nearing its end.
And for anyone who cares, the quote is from Hikari Yagami, introducing the prequel movie Digimon Adventure.
Name: First and last.
Age: Something reasonable
Appearance: What the character looks like.
Partner: In-Training form and line. Partner Digimon start in their In-Training form and Digivolve as the story progresses.. No two characters can have the same Digimon.
Personal Items: Something the character may carry with them other than their Digivice.
Bio: A bit about the character and their partner.
Other: Whatever doesn't belong in the above sections.
Multiple characters are allowed and encouraged on the grounds that their Digimon are not compatible for Joint Progress Digivolution. IE: No one person can have Veemon and Wormmon.
Restrictions: For reasons pertaining to the plot some Digimon are unavailable to sign up with.
Seven Great Demon Lords
Ten Ancient Warriors
Members of the Leomon species
As well as Digimon someone has already signed up be it the line entirely or even just a small portion. I'd rather not have to keep track of multiple Guilmon or something.
Members of the Royal Knights are acceptable (and encouraged), as are the Olympus XII.
Armor Digivolution: A process exclusive to a handful of Digimon requiring an object known as a Digimental. The Digimon transitions to a level with power ranging to anywhere from Champion to Ultimate in some cases. For unknown reasons, some Armor Level Digimon have appeared in the wild.
Example: Wormmon to Shadramon or FlaWizardmon with the Digimental of Courage.
Joint Progress Digivolution/Jogress Digivolution/DNA Digivolution/Fusion Digivolution when available works as the people whose character's Digimon have merged take turns with their actions.
An example being Teagan and myself taking turns with Silphymon's actions or Neon and I with BlackOmnimon.
Slide Digivolution: A process unique to a small number of Digimon allowing for them to shift to their darker form.
Known Examples: Angemon to Devimon, Monzaemon to WaruMonzaemon, Chessmons (White) to Chessmons (Black)
In some instances there are Digimon who can Slide Digivolve to their opposite of sorts.
Example: Seadramon to Airdramon.
Dark Digivolution: A process, like Slide Digivolution in the sense that it's unique to a small number of Digimon. It is a process that occurs naturally on some rare occasions, but most often when a Digimon is forced into Digivolving by a partner whose mind is clouded with anger.
Example: Greymon to SkullGreymon or WarGrowlmon to Megidramon.
Attributes: As you may know, most Digimon have an attribute. Data, Vaccine, Virus. In the first attemp, it worked as an Elemental Rock, Paper, Scissors, but was hardly enforced. In a fanfic I read they were refered to as alignments.
While not actually concrete as a Data Digimon could be evil, it was more of a characterization thing. Not something that's actually mandatory to keep in mind during character creation, but something to keep in mind.
Also: This section is a right mess.
