Godly characters for a video game 
We are looking for one SAG - AFTRA talent who can provide a voice for our characters:
Diligence Nomad, Poseidon and Hermes
(these fall under Atmospheric voices)

Voice style for D.Nomad: Strong and battle-hardened. He should sound somewhat gruff and seasoned, as if he has withstood plenty of battle and lived to tell the tale. He does not have time for quitters.

Voice style for Poseidon: Deep and god-like, very secure in his power with intent to inspire fear. Similar to Jafar’s genie form, but even deeper: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTFex5EmstM

Voice style for Hermes: He speaks with a British accent and uses crisp enunciation and proper grammar,
as if everything he has to say is very important and should be heard by everyone. He switches between reverence for the gods and being a hopeless gossip about
the messages he carries.

Diligence represents the constant search and continual striving of betterment through persistence and hard work. He is determined to achieve his goals no matter what stands in his way. His tattered wing is a representation of his struggle and perseverance through struggles. As an angelic being descended to Newerth, his steadfast nature pits him as the de-facto frontline warrior for King Jeraziah’s 7 Virtues.

Hermes is the god of transitions and boundaries. He is quick and cunning, and moves
freely between the worlds of the mortal and divine, as emissary and messenger of the
● Archetype(s):
○ Messenger, Herald, Guardian
For centuries Hermes has carried messages and souls from Newerth to the afterlife and
avoided getting involved, but he could no longer stand by when the Hellbourne began
stealing thousands of souls and using them for their fell means. He also feels compelled to aid the Legion after learning the powerful sorceress Circe had
joined the Hellbourne.

Dwelling in the deepest, darkest parts of Newerth’s oceans, where even the fiercest of land warriors and demons fear to venture, the god of the sea, Poseidon, rises from the depths. When his brothers Hades and Zeus returned to take back the earth after the Fall of Man, Poseidon knew they would conspire to steal his watery domain as well, reigning over the largest section of Newerth while he sat dethroned and on the run.

We expect the voice over recordings to take only 30 minutes. An hour at maximum.

We have effects that we are able to add to the voice if needed, but we
are looking for a voice that can bring this character to life. Please
do not use effects on your voice.

A custom demo from the provided scripts is preferred for evaluation of
candidates. There is no need to read all of the lines, but we would
like to hear what you can do. Hiring will be dependent on being
impactful with your demo.

We will require you, the talent, to either have the equipment at home or find a studio and book with
them and yourself, pay the hourly rate should you be hired, this is not
necessary for demoing purposes.

We would like to direct you over Skype if possible, or inside the studio you book. We do not cover the studio cost.

Specific expertise that I'm seeking:

The type of recording we are looking for is someone who will get into
character and not just read the lines--play off of movie/pop culture
references and show us some diversity in tone.

File Format:

The final format is a single mono .wav file of 44khz 16-bit.

Timeframe for delivery:

We'll need the voice-over recorded and delivered to us within 1 day
of acceptance.
