Nakahara Aiko
 
Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Aiko is based off a typical Free! boy. He has a female name and is often seen walking around in swimming trunks. In the roleplay, he plays a transfer student who has lost all his memory, but his love for swimming overtakes him and he joins the swimming club. He is a champion swimmer. As the roleplay progresses, I hope to give him some character development and also let him find out just what happened back in his hometown and why his parents are so anxious to cart him away. It's a mystery even to me! Personality-wise, he's easygoing and nice to a fault, but may be a bit too submissive to the whims of others.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Libra
Although he shows traits of a Cancer for his moodiness, Aiko also exemplifies the refinement and reasonableness of a Libra. He would never stir up trouble, and is the first to come up and try to settle a dispute.
 
Chinese Zodiac: Ox
Oxen are stubborn creatures, and Aiko would never let up on practices if his swimming ever falls below par. He is dogged and determinedly hardworking whenever he sees a goal.
 
Nationality/Place of Residence: He currently lives in Iwatobi, but came from Osaka, where he was born and grew up in.
 
Race/Species: Human (realistic)
 
Talents/Skills/Powers: Swimming. He is fairly dexterous and athletic, and sports come to him with ease.
 
Hobbies/Pastimes: Swimming. Also the typical fare of watching TV and playing video games.
 
Attributes: Physical is his primary Attribute, for obvious reasons. Social is his secondary Attribute and Mental his tertiary Attribute. He doesn't do very well in school.


 
Past History

The earliest memory Aiko currently has is that of his parents hurriedly moving away the moment he was discharged from hospital. He had had a head injury which seemingly left him comatose, and when he came to, none of his friends visited him, and his parents would not let him return to school either. They came to Iwatobi, which was as far away from Osaka as his parents could manage, and settled down in Iwatobi High, renowned for having a healthy and holistic school culture.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:
Lean but toned body
Black hair
Tall (taller than Teiko, Akane and Michi but shorter than Masumi and Souta)
 
Fashion Style: Casual but definitely not lazy. If not swimming trunks, he is often found in T-shirt and jeans, and he is careful with combing his hair


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: None as yet, but he does sometimes experience episodes of fuzzy memory retrieval, causing him to zone out for a while.
 
What does their house look like?: His bedroom is tasteful and comfortable. He has posters of rock stars and athletes papered all over his wall, and his swimming kit takes up a single shelf. He is pretty neat, so everything is in place. He also has a scruffy teddy bear discarded to the side of the bed now.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To piece together his past even if he doesn't remember everything, and to hone his skills at swimming
 
Short-Term Desires: To make friends and become a popular kid in the swimming club, and not to fail too badly at school
 
What are they most proud of?: He does have a pretty attractive physique, and he thinks his personality is friendly and approachable.
 
What do they like least?: Maybe if he were just a bit more assertive about his opinions, and not worry too much about offending others...
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ISFP
Aiko can be seen as the "obedient son" by his parents and the "nice guy next door" by his neighbours, but when it comes to his goals and things that he wants, woe betide anybody who tries to rein him back! He is spontaneous and unpredictable with his ideas, which come through once he feels comfortable to voice them.
 
Virtue: Hope
He retains a bright optimism that the future will always be better, even though his past seems to have told him otherwise.
 
Vice: Sloth
He would love to investigate more about his past, but he dislikes resistance and would much rather go with the flow.
 
Fears: losing his friends, being disliked
 
Secrets: He would do anything to please his friends just to avoid losing them


 
Likes

Favourite...
 
Colour: Orange

It's a refreshing, pleasing colour.
 
Place: Swimming pool

Perfect for hot weather, and to soothe his muscles
 
Food: Seafood

Totally not related! Maybe!
 
Music: Pop-rock

Pretty much the tastes of the masses
 
Animal: Dolphin

It's a graceful creature in the water, like how he wants to be


 
Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: Always try to calm down and rationally figure out the best solution, and get everyone else to calm down too
 
Rejection: Try to rationalise that it is for the best
 
Change: Change is a good thing, and he would bask in the novelty of the situation, while analysing how it would affect his daily life
 
Loss: He finds it difficult to get over losses and would mope about it for a long time before hanging out with people to try and get over it
 
Flirting: If he likes the girl, he would try to express his feelings. If not, well, it's still nice to be pampered sometimes.
 
Pain: One just must endure it
 
Stress: Swimming, relaxing, try to get it out of his mind
 
Peer Pressure: He unfortunately succumbs quite unwittingly to peer pressure
 
Guilt: He would find some way to apologise and make up to the person, but would not sacrifice his principles to do so
 
Being Wrong: People can be wrong. It's part of the learning process.
 
Criticism: He would try to see the criticism objectively, but often fails and wallows in self-pity instead
 
Being Insulted: Avoid the person
 
Praise: He tries not to let it get to him
 
Being Loved: He is a great lover and will staunchly love the other party back tenfold
 
Being Hated: It is a very uncomfortable feeling and he will once again avoid the person
 
How do they express...
Happiness: His radiant smile cannot be concealed, and everyone can tell from a mile off.
 
Sorrow: He goes to a quiet corner and sheds a few tears.
 
Anger: He starts to get into an irritating logical debate, arguing for the sake of arguing, with his fists clenched.
 
Love: He is a sweet lover and would not hold back with chocolates, flowers, personal handmade cards etcetera
 
Stress: Swimming a lot more than usual
 
Important Views: He values morality and equality to others most, and would not stand for people who commit crimes or treat others unjustly, including racism. He believes that the most important people are one's lovers, followed by friends and then family. He values the future more than the past.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: His parents, since he lost touch with his friends

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Michi -- Neutral feelings. Probably won't end up as good friends due to different interests, and because Michi has a pretty strange attitude. Still, Aiko is accepting of all people.

Teiko -- Seems like a really nice guy!

Yutaka -- A girl of a kind he had never seen before, but peculiarly appealing in her ways

Masumi -- Looks like someone to look up to, with his carefree free-spiritedness. Aiko will want to learn from him.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance completes one. Aiko can do well with friends, but a lover is like a bonus.

Views on Sex: Sex is a way of expressing love in intimate ways, and should be carried out with true sincerity.



Misc

My main motivation for building this character is the Free! commercial, where Makoto was portrayed as the "Sempai" persona, the nice, elder brother stereotype. In the anime, though, he became really womanly, and I wanted to avoid that. Aiko is a nice brotherly guy but without the sissy elements. I'm not sure how well I succeeded with not making him sissy, but I think he's evolved to become a good fit for Splash Free!, and a good poster boy. Looks-wise, I got some influence from Haruka, especially with regards to physique.

Ueda Michi

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Michi is the protagonist of Splash Free!, the guy with an ambiguous-gendered name (rather than strictly female, mind you) who is my favourite kind of guy, a dork! He has a small face with small features, and a disproportionately large pair of glasses. And best of all, he's like me and hates sports! He is however passionate about astronomy, and opposes the swimming club because he wants to convert the pool into a stargazing field, and get a greater share of the school budget if the swimming club goes bust. He is not the kind who plots and schemes behind people's backs, though, and would much rather be upfront with his intentions.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Sagittarius
He is slightly on the Sagittarius/Capricorn cusp, but still towards the Sag side. He may be just a little harsh and ruthless in his dealings, but his directness and infectious energy make him just so easy to forgive.

Chinese Zodiac: Ox
Being in the same class as Aiko, he shares the zodiac of obstinacy and conservativeness.
Nationality/Place of Residence: He has lived and grown up in Iwatobi all his life, and also came from Iwatobi Middle School before this.

Race/Species: Human (realistic)

Talents/Skills/Powers: Astronomy, and has an encyclopaedic memory in general

Hobbies/Pastimes: Stargazing, reading, a bit of drawing here and there

Attributes: Mental as primary, Social as secondary and Physical as tertiary



Past History

Michi was brought up by his uncle in the messy state of his parents' divorce, and was like a middle child, where he fought for attention from his elder and younger cousin. He realised early on that it was a fruitless battle, and so contented himself with being alone. He discovered a love for astronomy one sleepless night when looking out the window, after a fight with his cousin, and seeing the stars in that cloudless night. He had a voracious appetite for knowledge and would bury himself in astronomy books in the library all day and night. His relatives saw little of him from then on. The books spurred in him a desire to form an astronomy study unit, but nobody was interested to join him, not until he came to High School and finally met a friend who also liked stargazing. The school decided to grant them permission to set up the Astronomy Club ("study unit" was deemed as being too formal) and from then on Michi dreamed big, vowing to become the biggest astronomical association in Iwatobi and beyond.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:
Small size
Pale complexion
Small eyes
Small nose
Large round glasses

Fashion Style: Michi likes collared shirts and pressed trousers, which make him seem older and more dependable. He would wear heel extenders in his shoes to make himself taller on important occasions. His idea of stylish is incredibly nerdy.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: He likes to talk. He really likes to talk. He will talk on and on even with the rest of the world looking at him. And his voice can be quite loud and squeaky when he is excited.

What does their house look like?: His bedroom is compact and messy, but full of things he likes. There is a telescope that really takes up space, a bookcase full of astronomy references, a small portable plasma TV set and a computer.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To make the Astronomy Club into a respectable organisation and meet like-minded experts worldwide

Short-Term Desires: To get more funding and space for club activities, at all costs! And the swimming club must go!

What are they most proud of?: Having made the Astronomy Club a thing to begin with.

What do they like least?: His looks. If he could look as cute as Aiko, or maybe someone mature and brilliant, that would be much better.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ESTJ
Michi makes a model club leader. He has strict, rigid goals in place and loves to manage people. He is strong-willed enough to do what he promises, no matter the cost.
Virtue: Faith
Michi has faith, mainly in himself, but also in the people he trusts. He believes that everybody has the potential to do their best, and therefore he will not let up on himself.

Vice: Pride
Michi has a curious, almost dangerous, disregard of other people, believing in the motto: every man for himself and the devil takes the hindmost. And he really thinks highly of himself.

Fears: He doesn't know if he has any fears, but losing the astronomy club would be a pretty big deal

Secrets: None.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Black
The colour of mystery and maturity

Place: School field, without skyscrapers blocking everything

Food: Ramen
Fast and cheap, so that he can return to more interesting things

Music: Electronic blends can be pretty clever sometimes

Animal: Eagle
It is always soaring to higher ground, and gets to see the stars first.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: Michi is a brave soul when in danger, and has a beast in him that only small bespectacled boys have.

Rejection: He denies all rejection and will always try again.

Change: Change is fine as long as it is good. If it is bad, he will resist against it.

Loss: Losing anything is okay as long as he can get it back later.

Flirting: Flirting is fun, but only taken as a pastime. If anyone ever wants to flirt with him, that is.

Pain: He has a very low tolerance to pain and will emit high-pitched yowls.

Stress: He writes a diary to vent his stress.

Peer Pressure: Nope, he creates peer pressure.

Guilt: He tries to deny it and blame the other party instead.

Being Wrong: A most uncomfortable feeling, and he will swear never to make the same mistake.

Criticism: He would argue back if it is uncalled for.

Being Insulted: He will ignore it coolly, then find some way to get back at the other party.

Praise: He deserves it, of course.

Being Loved: He gets uncomfortable with too much love.

Being Hated: He will gladly hate the person back, but most of the time just forget about them entirely.

How do they express...
Happiness: With cheering and screaming.

Sorrow: He will cry in front of people.

Anger: He will cry from frustration and yell back.

Love: Inviting the person over for stargazing.

Stress: Snapping at people for no reason.

Important Views: He is pretty neutral on a lot of things, but believes strongly in freedom for all to pursue their own rights and ideals. Other than that he would offer an opinion when solicited, but most of the time would not dabble too much. His view is that life should be cherished because we only live once.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: His uncle and cousins are pretty important to him. However, the most important nakama are the members of his astronomy club, such as Souta.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Aiko -- probably not going to see much of him. He's not direct at all, but Michi can tell he's a sportsman.

Souta -- weak and impressionable, but at least he is on Michi's side.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is fun, but it must be boring to stick to the same person for too long.

Views on Sex: Michi has no illusions about this. He will probably be really bad at sex.



Misc

While this is an anime series, Michi has heavily Western roots, with the small eyes, nose and big glasses, like one of those nerdy girls or boys playing supporting roles in Disney's Recess or Hey Arnold!. However, I find that Michi's brusqueness and directness is endearing in a polite Japanese society. I hope there will come a point in the roleplay when he must work together with Aiko, or members of the swim team, or maybe fall in love with Yutaka!

Luke Sullivan

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Luke is a Planeswalker from Theros, come into the Harry Potter world many years ago. He was sorted into Slytherin and is a Red/Black Planeswalker. He has mixed feelings about May. He does find her cute, in a weak sort of way, but always feels cheated when she proves to be stronger than he is. He loves his goats in a way that people love cats and raise tens of them. Also, he has a strange relationship with the antagonist in the story, Seleucus... I shall not reveal more than that.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Leo

Luke exemplifies all the traits of a Leo. He is dignified, self-important, but also really genuinely wants to help people. He can be affectionate, but only if the other party also shows affection for them.

Chinese Zodiac: Ox
Luke has an affinity with horned beasts, such as his zodiac, and is quite capable of butting people away at the slightest provocation.

Nationality/Place of Residence: He was born in Theros, but is a permanent visitor to Ravnica. He has lived in the Harry Potter universe, specifically Mr and Mrs Woods' house in the outskirts of Hogsmeade, for a year now.

Race/Species: Planeswalker (double-faced, Minotaur)

Talents/Skills/Powers: Red/Black Magic spells

Hobbies/Pastimes: None, apparently.

Attributes: Physical is primary, Mental is secondary and Social is tertiary. He is really only interested in talking to animals. Physically, he has some great running stamina, and is as strong as a bull.



Past History

Luke Sullivan as a person emerged at a young age, when Seleucus wanted a guise that was not instantly recognisable as evil. Luke would go around being nice, or at least decent, to people, letting them off their guard, before Nicol Bolas used them for deceitful ends. Luke joined Nicol Bolas at an early age, upon learning of the great dragon while gallivanting in the Rakdos guild house. The Rakdos had not much connection with Nicol themselves, but they led Luke to Liliana, who told him where he could find Nicol. His ardent wish to find Nicol fuelled his Planeswalker spark, and Nicol found him highly useful not as a minion, but as an equal. Luke was faithful to Nicol, but had brains to think, and planned far and wide. He had heard of the power of the Harry Potter magical world for a long time, and with Nicol's permission, Planeswalked here to gain Voldemort's trust and acquire all the strong treasures.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Lanky

Blonde hair

Fashion Style: Luke still has not quite gotten used to British clothes. When alone or sleeping, he would wear his Theros garb, complete with Greek slippers. He likes to wear Rakdos colours as befit his type of magic, but was unfortunately not sorted into Gryffindor, and was thus forced to wear green.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: He has a terrible obsession with his goats, and would kill anybody who hurts them. He also has a tendency to be mean to people he envies.

What does their house look like?: His bed in Hogwarts is never without goat supplies in case any of his pets falls sick. He also scatters his wand and books all over the place, as if he didn't at all care about them.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To make Nicol Bolas the strongest Planeswalker ever, and also get all the glory

Short-Term Desires: To get through life at Hogwarts without getting caught and fulfilling Voldemort's instruction

What are they most proud of?: His achievement at gaining the trust of Nicol Bolas and Voldemort

What do they like least?: That he still cannot manipulate people effectively to get what he wants, such as to be in Gryffindor house

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ISTJ
No one is more thorough or task-oriented than he is. He will meticulously see his mission through no matter the cost.

Virtue: Temperance

He is careful not to go into extremes of either behaviour, because only an objective mind will succeed in the end.

Vice: Envy

He cannot stand people who are better than him, and will be quite petty to them.

Fears: Failing in his mission and letting Bolas down

Secrets: He is Seleucus, a villain who plots to double-cross Dumbledore and May in the end. He seems to harbour strange feelings about May though.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Red and black
Aside from being his colours, red and black make a great eerie impression.

Place: Ravnica

Anywhere else is simply boring in comparison.

Food: Fruits
Fruit salad is especially delicious.

Music: Metal

Screaming is music to his ears.

Animal: Goat

They are placid, yet prove menacing when annoyed.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: He is used to danger, and his first instinct is to protect himself by destroying all others.

Rejection: He faces quite a bit of rejection when it comes to Nicol Bolas, and has since learnt to live with it.

Change: He doesn't like change very much, but it is also something to get used to.

Loss: This is why he does not form emotional connections to anything.

Flirting: Flirting is a waste of time unless the other party is creative about it.

Pain: He will bear with it.

Stress: He will bear with it too, but hurry to get rid of it by completing whatever he sets out to do.

Peer Pressure: Only from Nicol will he submit.

Guilt: It is something he must live with, and he finds it easier to bear if he lowers his moral standards by a lot.

Being Wrong: He hates it, but there are more important things to concern with.

Criticism: He will only accept criticism from those better to him. Otherwise he kills them.

Being Insulted: He kills them.

Praise: He will suspect flattery and study the person very carefully. If it is sincere, he will bask in it.

Being Loved: He will try to avoid them.

Being Hated: It is bread and butter to him.

How do they express...
Happiness: Laughing out loud in a proud manner.

Sorrow: Keeping quiet and going off to a corner.

Anger: Killing someone.

Love: Doing things for them behind their backs, but openly treating them the same way.

Stress: Planeswalk to Ravnica and indulge in Rakdos activities.

Important Views: Being quite knowingly evil, he does not pretend to be upright about anything. He finds murder an acceptable solution to all problems, and takes death very lightly for himself as well.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Nicol Bolas is his lord and benefactor. He is also pretty friendly with Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Severus Snape -- he is not exactly charming, but he is deep and Luke will learn from him.

The Malfoy family -- really superficial and can't hide their emotions for even a moment.

Voldemort -- he is much weaker than Nicol, but still commands such regality. It is to his merit.

May -- she is what he is not: righteous, unyielding, kind. There is a strange attraction of opposites here.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is a waste of time unless the other party agrees to come with me to serve Nicol together.

Views on Sex: Disgusting activity undertaken only by bored people with no meaning in life.



Misc

I set out intending to make a Planeswalker from Theros, and Minotaur was a common race that doesn't have a Planeswalker yet. I did end up envisioning him as the Black version of Xenagos, the Reveler, though. In his human form, he looks like Akihito, maybe because he faces off against a Mirai. It's an Akihito who's truly evil. I really like being deliberately evasive in the roleplay, downplaying his connection with Seleucus, making him out to be a neutral party. I hope the big reveal has enough impact then.

Lorne Hilary Linton

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Lorne is a father tormented by the guilt that he wasn't by his daughter's side at her death. He cannot let go of her and carry on his life, and finds himself returning to the playground where she had played all alone without waiting for him. In the roleplay, the playground turned out to be haunted and he must make the decision whether to let her be exorcised, or to make it up to her ghost what he could not do while she was alive. I must say he is one of my deepest characters, and writing him feels exceedingly natural and a unique experience to me. Also, I purposely left it ambiguous as to where he had gone, why he would leave his daughter alone for so long without a parent or guardian, and how she died. This roleplay is one of negative feelings, and having such major questions unanswered will leave a very niggling feeling in readers. This roleplay was not designed for comfort.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Gemini
Before Becka's death, Lorne had been a changeable person, flitting from place to place, never settling down fully in one spot, and always observing the world with a detached eye.

Chinese Zodiac: Goat
Lorne has an insecure and worried side which is exemplified clearly from his Goat zodiac.

Nationality/Place of Residence: The city in the roleplay is unnamed. However, it is very certainly not his birth place. He has travelled many places in his life.

Race/Species: Human (realistic)

Talents/Skills/Powers: Computer repairing and installation is something he has learnt on the job

Hobbies/Pastimes: Jigsaw puzzles, logic puzzles, some Sudoku and crosswords now and then

Attributes: Mental primary, Physical secondary, Social tertiary. Both his Physical and Social attributes are really pretty poor.



Past History

Lorne used to be the son of a furniture deliveryman, helping his father to drive the truck during his holidays. He did well at school but did not further his studies in university. Rather, he came out and took over his father's company. However, it was never his aptitude, and he decided to leave home for better prospects at the age of 21. He worked as a temporary typist and met his wife, who was a manager in the company often bullied by her colleagues and bored with her job. They got married and lived in the town that Lorne now lives in, and named their baby daughter Becka. However, shortly after Becka was born, Lorne's wife died, and he was left to care for the girl on his own.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Gaunt, sallow face, with slight creases appearing around his eyes

Hunched up

Fashion Style: He has been pretty lax with fashion ever since Becka died, always wearing the same yellowed shirt underneath a cotton jacket or coat during the winter days.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: He clenches his fists whenever he is stressed.

What does their house look like?: His bedroom is what one would call an orderly mess. There is a pile of things at one corner, but all of them at a glance belong to the category of stationery. Another pile is for tops, and a third pile is bottoms. Lorne likes hanging artwork on his walls, so there are paintings of flowers bought from flea markets, when he discerns that their artists have potential and would make it big in the future.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: None, really.

Short-Term Desires: To try and get over Becka's absence in his life

What are they most proud of?: His logical intellect, when it comes to games.

What do they like least?: Not being a good enough father or successful person overall.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INFJ
Lorne works a lot on intuition, making his decisions solely on things he believes are "right". He is also tormented by a deep-rooted perfectionism that insists that nothing he does is ever correct.

Virtue: Prudence

He is careful and deliberate in what he does, sometimes to the point of thinking too much.

Vice: Lust

Lust not in the sexual sense, but an unhealthy fixation on Becka.

Fears: Sometimes he doesn't think he fears anything anymore, now that Becka is gone.

Secrets: No secrets that I know of.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Grey
Grey is a colour of gradually, gradually fading away.

Place: Places where he can reminisce about the past with Becka.

Food: Beef

For someone so mellow, he sure can bite hard into a piece of steak.

Music: Classical
He is a traditional man in some sense.

Animal: Cat

Cats are docile creatures who seem as if they can look deep into his soul. Just like Becka.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: He freezes because it is not something he encounters often.

Rejection: He just accepts it as proof that he is not good enough.

Change: He is unexpectedly hardy to change, and adapts quickly.

Loss: He deals with it like how he spends an entire roleplay trying to deal with Becka's loss.

Flirting: He doesn't always recognise it.

Pain: He is quite tolerant to pain and doesn't complain much.

Stress: He finds some way to withdraw. Barring that, he can only move forward.

Peer Pressure: He is old enough not to succumb to it unless it is rational.

Guilt: It keeps harping on him unless he does something to resolve it. Kinda like in the roleplay.

Being Wrong: It has happened to him a few times, and he has learnt to quite simply, deal with it.

Criticism: He learns from it.

Being Insulted: It doesn't really get to him.

Praise: He doesn't seem outwardly affected by it.

Being Loved: He loves only those he loves. Whoever loves him doesn't matter.

Being Hated: It is quite unlikely with him, but if he is hated, he will try to talk to them and understand where the problem lies.

How do they express...
Happiness: A smile and a twinkle in the eye

Sorrow: His eyelids droop

Anger: He talks with gritted teeth and clenched fists, and in a most even tone

Love: His love language is touch. He likes patting Becka on the head and touching her, for one.

Stress: Same as anger

Important Views: Lorne has viewed enough death to know that one is truly alone in this world, and so one must cherish one's existing loved ones even more strongly. He does not think much of social institutions such as marriage and family, and finds they only tie him down needlessly. If he loves someone, he does not need an institutional reason to do so. He is agnostic.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: His wife used to be someone he looked up to, for she was more capable than he. After her death, some of her came through in Becka, and he loved Becka as the only person in his life he ever loved so strongly.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Clare -- she is young and believes too much in doing things. One does not always do. One thinks and feels. Perhaps she will mellow with age. And yet she looks like she has also had troubled experiences.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Not ready for any new romance right now.

Views on Sex: He feels he is too old for this sort of thing.



Misc

Lorne is someone with a deliberately ambiguous age. He feels old, but in actual fact he cannot be more than middle-aged. I like that everything about him is shrouded in uncertainty, yet readers rely on him to see and tell the story in his own voice. He is somewhat adapted from Ethan Mars in Heavy Rain, the dejected, downtrodden father. Except in this case Lorne is not as desperate, and yet Becka comes back to haunt him. During the roleplay I find that I've fleshed out a lot of Becka's personality too. She is a lot like how I imagine DayDreamer would be if he were a little girl, actually. Always hiding her feelings, not meaning to be trouble, and yet always haunting one. Not a very positive verb to describe him, but he has inspired one of the most likeable girls I've ever created. Kudos to that.

Kuang JuJia

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Jujia is an Exorcist in the D.Gray-Man universe, a veteran in the trade who transferred over from the Asian Branch. She is Chinese, because I really want to make a Chinese character, and she wields a scythe as her anti-Akuma weapon that can change its shape and properties to suit the situation. She is a bit loud-mouthed, and always believes she is smarter than everyone else, because she has been places and experienced things. When faced with something new to learn, though, she will jump at it, bright with sparkling enthusiastic eyes.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Gemini
Collecting and sharing information is definitely Jujia's hobby, as is self-expression and affability.

Chinese Zodiac: Monkey
The zodiac sign of the Monkey adds yet another layer to Jujia's irascibility. She is fun, diplomatic and almost self-centred, and certainly would not refuse a banana.

Nationality/Place of Residence: Headquarters in England presently. She was, however, born in China and started off in the Asia Branch of the Black Order.

Race/Species: Human (Exorcist)

Talents/Skills/Powers: She has an equipment-type Innocence in the form of her multi-use scythe, which can even turn into a shield to wrap around her if she is going defensive. The scythe is made up of powers of the underworld and manifests as a shadow crackling with dark energy. Anyone else who tries to wield it will have their soul sucked into the darkness.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Talking to people or gossiping, practising for combat

Attributes: Physical primary, mental secondary and social tertiary. She may like social interaction, but she does not have great social skills.



Past History

Like most Exorcists, it came as a surprise when Jujia found a dark scythe wherever she went, back in high school. Her schoolmates began to stay away from her or tease her from afar, and the teachers who tried to confiscate her scythe were profoundly affected when touching it. Jujia did not want anything to do with this nightmarish scythe, but one day, she met a girl who did not mind her scythe. They became the only friends, even though the girl also became the target of ridicule. However, the girl fell ill and died, and her sister turned into an Akuma trying to revive it. Jujia activated her scythe to murder the Akuma, and from then on left her hometown and fled. She later learnt from a travelling Exorcist that she should go to the Black Order, and there, she found new meaning and friends again. She was transferred to Headquarters due to manpower shortage there.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Long brown hair with long fringe

Short stature (shorter than Reina and Lenalee)

Fair complexion

Fashion Style: She loves hair accessories, short skirts and ankle boots. Her motto when it comes to fashion is having as many colours on her person as possible.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: She talks very quickly when excited, and likes to lean in too close when she talks.

What does their house look like?: Her room screams of exuberance. She has a big poster of a Chinese movie star, a large radio, a large closet bursting with clothes and very brightly-coloured blinds for her windows. All of the items are pretty expensive too.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To explore the world and be a General.

Short-Term Desires: To increase the synchro rate with her scythe.

What are they most proud of?: Her experiences and her talents in overcoming them.

What do they like least?: Perhaps her looks. If she had a pointier nose, or a more womanly aura...

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ESTP
Jujia believes in action, getting things done, and puts no stock on intuition or abstract theories. What she wants to do most is tell stories of her adventures to an animated audience.

 

Virtue: Justice

Jujia has a strong sense of right and wrong, which propels her onward to risk her life and enter danger to uphold an Exorcist's principles.

Vice: Greed

Jujia is always impatient for more. More adventures, more things to learn, she can never sit still and say that enough is enough.

Fears: Not being able to do her duty as Exorcist anymore

Secrets: She refuses to tell anyone of her past, for it was not glamourous, and comes under a zone which she does not go into.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Yellow
Bright and merry, sounds like her!

Place: Anywhere new and interesting

Food: Soup! She loves any kind of soup.

Music: Pop ballads

Every girl loves love songs, no matter the country.

Animal: Phoenix

Sure, it may be mythical, but that doesn't stop it from being cool.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: She loves danger and jumps right into it!

Rejection: Sometimes she doesn't notice she has been rejected.

Change: Change is the bread and butter of her life.

Loss: Out with the old, in with the new.

Flirting: Flirting is fun, but she wouldn't want to get serious.

Pain: She will staunchly brave it.

Stress: It makes her feel all tingly and she'll want to smash something to relieve it.

Peer Pressure: A good chance to show off by going above and beyond what people ask her to do.

Guilt: She doesn't feel particularly perturbed by it.

Being Wrong: It is maddening, but she will learn something new!

Criticism: It is rather rude, and it's not as if the other party is great. She will also find a chance to criticise them back.

Being Insulted: She will insult them in return right away.

Praise: She accepts it as something she deserves.

Being Loved: It is not something she gets often, but she adores it.

Being Hated: This is common for everyone. Enemies are inevitable. They're probably just jealous.

How do they express...
Happiness: Jumping, squealing and hugging random people.

Sorrow: Stomping off to her room to sulk.

Anger: Stomping off to her room to sulk.

Love: Hanging around the person and biting their ear off non-stop.

Stress: Fidgeting

Important Views: She believes that all Akuma should be exterminated and all people saved. She aims to prevent deaths whenever possible, and that is her duty in life.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Ever since her friend died, she no longer has anyone important in her life, but she still holds her friend's memory in her mind.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Hakurei -- a very nice and gentle man, but she simply cannot accept his age.

Chris -- not a particularly competent or committed person.

Reina -- she wants to know her better. She seems just as fiery as her.

Lavi -- he's a funny, entertaining guy! Looks good, too.

Allen -- he's really nice, but seems quite young.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: A boyfriend would sound great! She hasn't had much luck so far, though, so maybe it's really hard.

Views on Sex: She's certainly old enough now, and let it not be said that there was any experience she hadn't tried!



Misc

I wonder if I started out intending to make Jujia so irritating. Maybe I did. I know I wanted her to be a know-it-all and a pretty unpleasant character in general. She's really just a person who doesn't know her own unpleasantness, which really does happen to a lot of people in reality. So maybe she is just a realistic character. The scythe, by the way, was inspired from the scythe in Ookamikakushi, even though it doesn't share the same powers. I don't actually think the scythe in Ookamikakushi has much powers, aside from having a bell tied around it that rings to signal the person's arrival. My scythe is like a scythe with Mr Fantastic's skill.

Hikaru

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Hikaru is a retired ninja in the feudal Japanese era, who risked his life to escape the ninja clan and follow his destiny as a wanderer, prepared to help the person who needs him most. All this stemmed from a sighting of the kirin back in his ninja days. A kirin signifies the rise of a sage or ruler, and he is determined to do as his destiny decrees and assist this great person to power. On a side note, he is actually a woman in disguise.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Libra
Hikaru is peace-loving and has no dreams of becoming important. All he wants to do is help establish a system that he believes in.

Chinese Zodiac: Horse
Hikaru has a wandering, restless spirit, and enjoys taking on tasks that allow him to travel.

Nationality/Place of Residence: He is currently nomadic, but he used to live in Kyoto back when he was a ninja.

Race/Species: Human (ex-ninja)

Talents/Skills/Powers: His ninja abilities have not left him. He is still alert, stealthy and possesses his full set of weapons.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Playing the flute as he looks out at the water

Attributes: Physical primary, Social secondary, Mental tertiary. Hikaru is keen on communication, and knows the right things to say when asking the help of others. Most of her time, her own mental faculties are lacking behind.



Past History

Hikaru was sold to the ninja clan at a young age as a little girl. The ninjas initially did not accept females, but she proved to be more agile than the boys, and was thus admitted on the condition that she would forever be referred to in the male form. This condition thus accepted, Hikaru adjusted to life as a boy, and slowly as a man. He was happy as a ninja, but was soon discovered to have the problem of distractibility. He was distracted by music coming from outside, and from the birds in the sky. The ninjas tersely admonished him, but it did not stop him from walking down the road one day and seeing a kirin, looking straight at him. The kirin disappeared in an instant, and he was left bewildered and affected. He could concentrate even less on his assignments, and soon decided it was too perilous to continue with the kirin on his mind. He packed his bags one night and left with a note of goodbye. From then on, he left Kyoto as quickly as he could and wandered on, alone, ever seeking that kirin again.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Long black hair tied in ponytail

Fair complexion

Short stature compared to men

Fashion Style: Hikaru likes loose-fitting blue robes to conceal as much of his figure as possible, and also for comfort. He wears traditional Japanese slippers. There is not much fashion style in ancient Japan.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: He cannot focus on the same thing for too long, and is really easily distracted.

What does their house look like?: Being a wanderer, he has no permanent abode. However, when he is offered the privilege of a roof over his head, Hikaru does not mind setting his flute on the table and arranging a vase of flowers for some added fragrance and just that slightest touch of delicateness to the room.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To guide the kirin's chosen one to power and see the emergence of a just rule.

Short-Term Desires: To find the kirin's chosen one, or see the kirin again.

What are they most proud of?: His decision to leave the ninja clan, which he has never regretted. Also his quick reflexes.

What do they like least?: His gullibility. He easily believes anything he is said.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ENFP
Hikaru has a highly evolved value system, and a whirlwind of energy to carry it out. Droll mundane tasks are not his cup of tea.

Virtue: Faith

He has unwavering faith in the kirin, and in the chosen one.

Vice: Lust

He has an unwavering desire to aid the chosen one, no matter what kind of outcome it may be.

Fears: Of being denounced due to his true gender being found out.

Secrets: He is actually a female. He also tries not to tell everyone how he plans to find and assist the chosen one.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Blue
It is a sedate, thoughtful colour, and these are the 2 things he wants to be more of.

Place: Anywhere is his home, but a hot spring is really great.

Food: Hotpots for the cold weather.

Music: Flute music.

Animal: The common sparrow, because it is free and boundless and unnoticed by people.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: He gets just a bit flustered from the start, then looks for a leader to give commands.

Rejection: He will find alternative means to get what he wants.

Change: As a ninja, he has always learnt to deal with change. Always focus on the goals and values in life, and shift your course back towards them.

Loss: He is a person with nothing to his name, so losing isn't as bad.

Flirting: Flirting can only mean the woman is seductive and bad in historical times. Plus, he doesn't respond to women anyway.

Pain: It will go away, as everything else does.

Stress: The life of a ninja is a life of stress. Once again, focus on the things that don't change and do matter.

Peer Pressure: He hasn't recognised anything as peer pressure so far. He did after all break norms and leave his clan.

Guilt: It plagues him and he keeps thinking about it. But he constantly weighs his priorities.

Being Wrong: He humbly accepts the teaching.

Criticism: Not like he hasn't been living without it all this time.

Being Insulted: If the insult is overboard, he will challenge the other party to a duel.

Praise: One must always remember to be humble even despite praise.

Being Loved: Love is a foreign name, yet he felt it deeply among the ninjas. He believes in quiet, unspoken love.

Being Hated: This is also something felt keenly as a ninja. There is nothing to be done but move on.

How do they express...
Happiness: He breaks into a small, fleeting smile.

Sorrow: He remains silent and looks away.

Anger: He tells the person he is cross, and may challenge them to a duel.

Love: He does not express it openly.

Stress: He grips his dagger tightly and walks to quiet places.

Important Views: He views politics very seriously, that only the right people should rule. This is why he was so eager to help the kirin. He respects authority and believes that life is cyclical, and one is sent to Earth to fulfil one's duty and one's destiny, and he has found his own.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: He has broken off all ties with the ninjas. Now he shares only an unspoken bond with the kirin.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Lord Suzuki -- knowledgeable and wise, he has helped Hikaru plenty.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: It is not in Hikaru's position to discuss this.

Views on Sex: Sex is something done after marriage for the purpose of producing young.



Misc

I meant Hikaru as a proper male from the beginning, but after Valentine asked me to consider turning him into a woman, I toyed with the idea of doing it halfway, because I so like complexity and irony. He is sorta like Kanda from D.Gray-Man, in terms of appearance but not personality. I also tried to visualise old Japanese black-and-white films for how they might act, and maybe mixed in a bit of Chinese customs since I know them better. Hikaru is interestingly gullible, which is something ninjas probably should not have. Then again, people were much purer in the past, were they not?

Kaitlen

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Kaitlen, or Kate for short, is a Halfling. That means she belongs in the category of ambiguous magical folk who may or may not possess race-specific abilities, but who all look short and stubby. Kate does not know magic, and is really fundamentally no different from a shorter human. In the roleplay, she accompanies her elder sister to retrieve the Wolf's Bane, an ingredient for an antidote that will cure their ailing mother, and together they go off on adventures. On these adventures, they meet with dangers that they have to work together to face, in quite creative ways. Kate is the smaller, weaker and more timid of the 2 sisters, but she makes up for it by being lightweight and quite agile, and also more strategic.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Cancer
Kate wants to be safe and secure, and is highly dependent on her sister. She would much rather avoid all challenges and retreat into her shell.

Chinese Zodiac: Rooster
Kate is as observant and vain as her zodiac sign would decree.

Nationality/Place of Residence: She used to live in a little village in the mountains, where the nearest neighbours were miles away. Now, she and Gwen are travelling, so they have no fixed abode. There is no name for the world in general.

Race/Species: Halfling

Talents/Skills/Powers: Is capable of climbing trees, though she cannot swim. Also has some intelligence.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Playing in the grass, watching the sunset

Attributes: Social primary, Mental secondary, Physical tertiary. Kate is good with words and is a much better liar than Gwen. Her brainpower make up for her physical frailness.



Past History

Kate used to be a happy, carefree child, living with her mother and sister up in the mountains. They were a rare species, which was why it became very troublesome when their mother became unwell. In the past, they would catch fish for dinner, and grow fruit crops to sell, and live a comfortable life. Ever since the sickness, though, their mother had been bedridden and Kate and Gwen had to do everything themselves. The Doctor who came to treat their mother concluded that the disease was a strange, uncommon one. At the time, there was no cure, but the Doctor came up daily to treat her. At the time of the roleplay, he finally said they had devised a cure which required Wolf's Bane, and so they set off.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Short, stubby appearance

Leaner than Gwen

Fashion Style: The traditional hobbit tunic. Kate would sometimes wear a frock too, but this is inadvisable during travelling days. She does not take much note of her hair or dirt on her body.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: Sometimes Kate still has very childlike behaviours, and tends to over-react in the face of danger.

What does their house look like?: They do not have individual rooms, but Kate's bed is always the messiest.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To grow up and be able to help her mother and Gwen around the house

Short-Term Desires: To fetch the Wolf's Bane without difficulty

What are they most proud of?: Her quick thinking.

What do they like least?: That she is not old enough, strong enough or brave enough like Gwen.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ENTP
She is a visionary who can see possibilities everywhere she goes, and generates ideas and solutions to problems quickly and enthusiastically.

Virtue: Charity

Kate shows great care and helpfulness to everyone around her. When Gwen was about to go and fetch the Wolf's Bane alone, she volunteered to go with her without thinking, and made sure to help her at every step of the way.

Vice: Greed

She is always wondering why they cannot have more. More luxuries in their life, more fish to eat at dinner. Why couldn't their mother get better? She has many grumbles that she keeps to herself, wanting life to be better.

Fears: Water, wild beasts, Gwen being incapacitated in any way, death, ghosts

Secrets: Although she may appear bold and cheery on the outside, her phobias worry her all the time, and the future, whenever she thinks of it, is always bleak.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Pink
She is just a little girl after all.

Place: Home, especially the kitchen.

Food: Fish

Music: Dance music, anything that's upbeat really.

Animal: Rabbit

Rabbits are docile and fluffy. What's not to like about them?



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: She is paralysed.

Rejection: She runs back to Gwen and her mother, who would never reject her.

Change: It is confusing, but with Gwen by her side, she will tell her what to do.

Loss: She would cry about it, and forget about it the next day.

Flirting: She is too young to recognise it, but tends to be shy and wary of strangers.

Pain: She will cry, then get over it.

Stress: She will be unusually silent, thinking of what to do, hoping not to worry her family.

Peer Pressure: She will ask Gwen if she feels she's being goaded to do the wrong thing.

Guilt: She will be very uncomfortable without knowing why.

Being Wrong: Sometimes other people do get the upper hand. She will feel petty but get over it if the other party treats her well later.

Criticism: It is irritating and she will sulk and refuse to do anything productive for a while.

Being Insulted: She will cry and go back home to tell Gwen.

Praise: Her face will glow and she may skip around telling everyone about it.

Being Loved: She grew up in a family of love, and knows how to handle and give love.

Being Hated: She is not used to it, and will try to reconcile with the other party.

How do they express...
Happiness: Skipping, dancing and singing

Sorrow: Crying

Anger: Pouting

Love: Hugging and being nice to the other party

Stress: Be very silent and not seem to notice people talking to her.

Important Views: Kate has not developed views on many important things in life, but she has a staunch sense of morality and also love. One must love one's family and do good things. That was it, really, to her.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Her mother was a figure of strength and hope, but she crumbled and made Kate very insecure.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Gwen -- her resourceful, always dependable sister

The Doctor -- for some reason she just disliked him, but she must admit he is a doctor who does his best.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is for adults, meant to take them away from their families.

Views on Sex: What is that? She probably didn't have it.



Misc

I imagine Kate as a pouty-faced girl, maybe from one of Miyazaki Hayao's movies. Someone who is carefree and retains her child-like qualities even in situations asking for maturity. To Kate, the world is simple, but increasingly getting complex as she grows older. I also want to portray her frustration at Gwen at becoming a negative portrayal of an adult -- weepy, worried, snappy.

Angus

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Angus is a vampire living in the underground city of Noirarth, in a world named Aerth where vampires, werewolves, dragons, phoenixes and humans co-exist. In the roleplay, Darkness, the Queen among the vampires, has vanished, and Angus plots to steal the throne with the werewolves thwarting his political advance. Angus is my idea of a sleek vampire. He doesn't seduce if he can help it, but he talks with bearing and gravitas, and doesn't hold back when he knows what he must do. Aside from that, he is a proficient Sorcerer, able to eliminate his opponents in one quick stroke.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Capricorn
Angus is practical and cares only for things that are worthwhile. He quietly collects status symbols and means to get to the top someday, even if it takes a long time to do it.

Chinese Zodiac: Tiger
"Moderation" is not a word in Angus' dictionary. He moves forward with zest and vigour, perhaps even too intensely, and his born leadership earns him the respect and ire of his peers, often at the same time.

Nationality/Place of Residence: Noirarth. He has a sprawling estate all to himself, as a result of his rank and standing in the community.

Race/Species: Vampire

Talents/Skills/Powers: Ability to turn into a bat, typical vampire attributes, and also certain spells at his disposal

Hobbies/Pastimes: Reading inspirational material, plotting, forging social networks and connections

Attributes: Mental primary, social secondary, physical tertiary. Angus is as frail as glass, but makes up for it with intellect.



Past History

Angus has been a vampire for as long as he could remember. He was raised directly under Queen Darkness, and provided invaluable advice to her, becoming one of her trusted confidantes. He steadily rose in the ranks, perhaps to the disdain of some vampire kin, and was often ostracised by the older vampires. He swore that if he obtained even more power and influence, he would boot all these dissenters out, and thus sat waiting for the chance. His chance came when Darkness disappeared mysteriously, and he set his plan to action.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Tall

Wiry

Hook-nosed

Fashion Style: Angus does not like to be flamboyant or to stand out, but he pays close attention to good tailor work. He wears costly suits with safe colours like black, and every set of his clothing is the work of mastery.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: Angus can be slow and plodding in his movements. He has, after all, really a lot of time on his hands. He also likes to threaten people courteously, sometimes to no avail.

What does their house look like?: His bedroom is one of the finest. He has gold-rimmed bedposts, a soothing scent in the air, and soft, muted colours of purple and blue on the walls. Each item in the room is expensive, but not obviously so to the untrained eye.



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To seize power and control the entire vampire community.

Short-Term Desires: To accumulate more people he can trust.

What are they most proud of?: His patience and his doggedness to pursue his strategy.

What do they like least?: He is not as charming as some other vampires, and loses out against the ladies.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INTJ
Angus coolly observes the political system, and generates ideas that translate into plans for him to undertake. He is miserly when it comes to affection or compliments to others.

Virtue: Prudence

Angus thinks before he acts, for every step that he takes.

Vice: Wrath

Angus has a weakness when it comes to his temper. He can blow up at the subtlest provocation, and it usually does not bode well for the other party.

Fears: Slipping up, being betrayed, losing all his assets

Secrets: He has no idea why Darkness disappeared, or when she will come back, and is constantly on the alert for her return.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Purple
The colour of royalty and majesty. It is gentle like a woman, yet firm and elusive.

Place: Home

He loves being at home, relaxing, more than anything.

Food: Blood
Red wine does take second place, though.

Music: Jazz

He has a curious interest in the saxophone.

Animal: Spiders

They know a lot more than one would think, crawling into people's dark corners without being spotted.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: He calmly finds a way to escape.

Rejection: He will come up with a plan to get it again, years later.

Change: He dislikes change, and will try to find his footing again.

Loss: Having accrued so many possessions, Angus places great value on material goods. Losing them would be a blow to his self-esteem.

Flirting: He would try to manipulate it to his ends.

Pain: He has suffered his fair share of pain in his life, but still has a pretty low tolerance, and will squeal like a baby.

Stress: He will listen to jazz to calm him down.

Peer Pressure: He will keep his end goals always in mind.

Guilt: It is something one must get over eventually.

Being Wrong: Rarely does that happen these days. Angus will check thoroughly to ensure he is really wrong before admitting it.

Criticism: It is a blow to his pride and he will not speak to the other party for a while.

Being Insulted: Such people are below his standing to bother with.

Praise: He will feel happy for a while, then wary of the emotional manipulation that ensues.

Being Loved: He will use them for his ends.

Being Hated: He will not bother with them.

How do they express...
Happiness: He laughs, though his eyes still remain indifferent.

Sorrow: He retreats to his room and locks the door.

Anger: His eyes pulsate with a dangerous glow.

Love: Not betraying them.

Stress: Listening to a lot of jazz.

Important Views: Angus believes that one's motivations are not as important as one's means. One must be graceful in executing any crime, leave no evidence pointing towards them, no mess or gore, and this is the mark of a good person. He also believes that class and status mean everything.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Queen Darkness had been his benefactress, but she should have left the throne to him earlier on.

How they feel about characters in roleplay: None as yet



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is a very good way to tie someone unwaveringly to him.

Views on Sex: Alas, vampires don't tend to be very good at this.



Misc

Angus is my favourite kind of vampire. He is evil but classy, ruthless but gentle. I see him as resembling an older version of Tyki Mikk in D.Gray-Man. He is also a more unscrupulous version of me, with his love for fame and power.

Coral Ice

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Coral Ice is an Assassin Werewolf -- quite a compatible arrangement if you think about it. She is gruff, stoic, antisocial, but has a fair head about her when it comes to logic and deduction, which is why she is also my Detective in the roleplay, intent to thwart Angus like a game of chess, and also in the meantime find out just where Darkness is, to reinstate the natural order of things that werewolves respect. As part of her respect for order, she also takes orders readily from her chief. She is speedy, with fast reflexes, and is good at hiding before leaping out to strike just at the right time.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Aquarius
She believes in new ways of thinking, taking risks and frankness above all else. She would never stand for unequal treatment of people.

Chinese Zodiac: Dragon
No one can ever tell Coral Ice how to do her work. She is proud and irritable, and always tries to hold on to her power and techniques, jealously guarding them from enemies who may try to learn her skills.

Nationality/Place of Residence: She lives in the North with her werewolf pack, but is often sent out on quests.

Race/Species: Werewolf

Talents/Skills/Powers: Stealth, investigation abilities

Hobbies/Pastimes: Training

Attributes: Mental primary, physical secondary, social tertiary.



Past History

Coral Ice was never a particularly loved child among the werewolves. She liked being alone and would not join crowds, so she was often left out of activities. However, she was very observant and the chief soon came to realise this was great potential. She gave Coral Ice opportunities to crack cases within the nation, and soon the pack became aware of her deductive talents. The chief then sent her out on detective and spying missions outside, and she added Assassin to her job scope. Recently, the chief had been worried about mysterious undercurrents of an insurgence going on with the vampires, and how that would affect the werewolves, and hence sent Coral Ice down to investigate.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Toned

Werewolf ears

Black hair

Fashion Style: Coral Ice dresses for combat. She wears form-fitting trousers and a T-shirt, though when she transforms to her wolf form her clothes disappear. She ties her hair into a convenient ponytail or bun, though there are times when she ties it into a pigtail to get it out of her eyes.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: She is aloof and standoffish, and twitches when she is annoyed.

What does their house look like?: Her room is simple and betrays nothing about her. There are no personal belongings that can reveal her identity, and it is spotless, with everything in place. Drawers are locked.

Even though she appears tough and cold on the outside, she truly believes the best in those who trust in her, and wants to work hard for them.

Vice: Wrath

Sometimes her temper clouds her judgment, especially when she is impatient with how things are going.

Rejection: She does not place high expectations, for fear of disappointment.

Change: If the change is something she approves of, then she will support it wholeheartedly.

Loss: This is why she does not form attachments.

Flirting: She does not reject advances, but she will not encourage them, for the other party's own good.

Pain: She does not make the slightest sound.

Stress: When is there no stress?

Peer Pressure: She hates peer pressure and will never succumb to it.

Guilt: It nags at her moral standards and she will find herself gravitating back to the person, looking over them from a distance.

Being Wrong: It is shocking, but it only indicates that she must return and think further.

Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Silver Fang is her chief and she respects her fairness and ability.

How they feel about characters in roleplay: None yet



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: It is not for her kind of lifestyle. She is much more comfortable just making friends, if any.

Views on Sex: She wouldn't mind doing it as part of her job, though it seems a crass way of manipulation.



Misc

Coral Ice is largely inspired by Panne from Fire Emblem: Awakening, but replace bunny ears with wolf ears. They are both equally sullen, aloof, but secretly faithful and good at fighting. Coral Ice is also my only "sleuth" character so far, and I mean to have her do all the Sherlock Holmes work, except in a fantasy setting. I do hope I can pull that off!

Joi Gracelyn Cartwright

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Joi is the daughter of a poor but loving mother -- described as a bit on the bouncy side -- in a world where everyone interacts via technology and it has become dangerous to leave the home. She owns an old model of a Pocket Device (the roleplay equivalent of smartphone) and is bullied by strangers because of it. The roleplay was gunning for a dystopic futuristic element, where everyone cares only for the new things, and people can write all sorts of nasty things behind the veil of anonymity. However, Joi is a strong woman and she doesn't let the bullying get to her.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Scorpio
Like a proud Scorpio, Joi does not let obstacles get her down. No one can make her do anything she does not want to do and she is not intimidated by anybody.

 

Chinese Zodiac: Dog
She is forthright and loyal, but dislikes socialising or gossip, and can get defensive if picked on.

 

Nationality/Place of Residence: The city is unnamed, but is likely to be a big metropolis.

Race/Species: Human (realistic)

Talents/Skills/Powers: Not much, it seems.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Using the computer, much like everyone else; also walking out in the streets on her own.

Attributes: Mental primary, Physical secondary, Social tertiary. Socialisation is not her strong suit.



Past History

Joi lives alone with her mother. She has no idea whom her father is, and her mother refuses to tell. All she knows is that from young, they have belonged in the lower stratum of society. Her mother works hard, but a cleaning lady cannot earn much these days. And so Joi lived a life of bullying. She did not dare tell her mother, though, for fear of upsetting her, and her mother couldn't do anything about it anyway. So she lied that she had friends, but would sneak out of the house on her own to catch a breather and have some alone time.



Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics:

Thin

Fashion Style: She tends to wear the same clothes, not having much variety. She wears long-sleeved blouses and long skirts, with old shoes, or maybe put on a T-shirt. When the weather is cold, she has only one coat that she wears everyday.



Other Characteristics

Quirks: She has very ugly teeth when she smiles.

What does their house look like?: Her bedroom is dusted everyday by her mother, though if it were left alone it would have become a molehill of rubbish. There are drink stains on her bed, cockroaches busy building a nest in the corner...



Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To get a decent job and support her mother

Short-Term Desires: To get a job, any job.

What are they most proud of?: That she is an obedient girl and doesn't worry her mother

What do they like least?: That she is not smart enough to be a top student and win the admiration of her peers.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INFP
Joi's goal is to make the world a better place, and eradicate inequality and suffering like what she faces.

 

Virtue: Fortitude

Joi is thoroughly unfazed by the bullying.

Vice: Sloth

She could go up and report these bullies, but she really cannot be bothered.

Fears: Her mother will get sad for any reason.

Secrets: She keeps the bullying and her poverty a secret from most people.



Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Red
Red is a vibrant, energetic colour.

Place: Outside, where she doesn't need to stand the scorn of mankind.

Food: All kinds of food, frankly. Potato chips are pretty good though.

Music: Trance

It's the music of the times, for the youth.

Animal: Goldfish

It's so oblivious to everything going around it, and its memory is so poor it's adorable.



Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: She screams for help.

Rejection: She holes herself up under her quilt and sighs for a while.

Change: She will get through it, like she gets through far worse things.

Loss: It can be painful to lose something one has, when one already has so few things. She will coop herself under her quilt as well.

Flirting: She flirts back, knowing full well the other party will leave once they find out more about her.

Pain: She coops herself under her quilt and sucks or blows on the affected spot.

Stress: She coops herself under her quilt to try to think things through.

Peer Pressure: She doesn't care.

Guilt: She tries to help and make up for it if possible.

Being Wrong: She tries not to think about it anymore.

Criticism: She faces it everyday and has learnt to discern fact from fiction.

Being Insulted: She leaves them be. On days when she feels motivated enough, she stings them in return.

Praise: She gets happy for a while, then the feeling slowly dies down when more criticisms come in.

Being Loved: She will appreciatively shower the other party with love in return.

Being Hated: She will hate them back. No big deal.

How do they express...
Happiness: She cheers and jumps on her bed.

Sorrow: She coops herself up under her quilt.

Anger: She coops herself up under her quilt and batters her pillow.

Love: She gives gifts to the person, which she feels is the best way to express love.

Stress: She coops herself up under her quilt.

Important Views: She respects the division of power in society, but is determined to break out of her own poverty cycle. She thinks that people seem to have lost respect for nature and relied too much on science and technology, which can only help so much.



Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Her mother is the sole reason she lives on today.

How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Arn -- a friendly guy, but a bit eccentric, going out of the house on his own too. She hopes they have something in common.



Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: She won't say no to it.

Views on Sex: She's pretty easygoing about sex. As long as you respect each other, why not?



Misc

Joi reminds me of a teenage girl, even though I set her age to roughly 21. She still acts in that lazy, narrow-minded manner that I associate drawling teenagers with. However, she knows what she wants, and she knows what she's doing, and I like that she has substance. I try to give my characters substance most of the time. She isn't one of my most thought-out people, but she is a strong woman, and strong women make good inspiration models for me.

Ma Yan

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
For people who have watched Chinese historical dramas, or played Street Fighter (wink wink), Ma Yan is the muscular shirtless guy, who walks around snorting and declaring threats in a loud voice. He is for the most part harmless and extremely righteous, but is fond of bragging and getting into brawls. That said, he has a strong sense of duty and can be relied on to perform tasks. Just don't ask him to do anything intellectual. He also has a nice sense of fun and likes socialising over wine.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Sagittarius

Ma Yan is restless and cheerful, and certainly has a blind faith in people he knows. He sees the world in a very simple -- if a little simplistic -- light.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Brawling, drinking liquor, socialising
 
Attributes: Physical primary, Social secondary, Mental tertiary


 
Past History

Ma Yan was an orphan from birth, raised by his grandfather who died when he was 21. Since then, he has been living on his own, loafing around with his gang of rowdy friends. They do not intentionally create trouble, but they do cause a loud ruckus. However, Ma Yan has been a favourite in the village for being so likeable and helpful despite his occasional roughness, and so he is mainly forgiven and allowed to roam around, jobless.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: Beefy body, small eyes, unkempt beard
 
Fashion Style: When not decked in armour, Ma Yan wears a tattered shirt or sometimes no shirt at all, and three-quarter-length pants


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: He laughs exceedingly loudly, and makes grunting sounds when he wants to make a point
 
What does their house look like?: His house is messy and old. He fixes all the spoiled parts, so the house is in working condition, but there has not been a woman in the house since his mother's death, so clothes are strewn about and dishes are not washed.

Long-Term Goals: To be a good commander and bring honour to his village and kingdom
 
Short-Term Desires: To get used to the army's tight regime
 
What are they most proud of?: His boldness and honesty
 
What do they like least?: His recklessness and inability to read
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ESFJ

Ma Yan loves being around people, and will do anything to uphold the moral code he has been brought up with in his village.
 
Virtue: Justice
 
Vice: Pride
 
Fears: Being made to do intellectual tasks, being despised

Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: His grandfather and villagers are his closest kin.
 
How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Muxue -- she may be a woman, but she is his best friend and understands him best

Jiang Mu -- an honourable man worthy of respect


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: romance is unnecessary for marriage, but between a couple there should be trust
 
Views on Sex: procreation is of course mandatory


 
Misc

One very symbolic icon in Chinese action stories is the reckless hero. Of course, the spotlight is always shone on the clever ones (like Zhuge Liang) and the people-oriented leaders (like Liu Bei or Song Jiang from Water Margin) but the martial warriors are the reliable pillars, the ones who staunchly and silently carry out their leaders' orders with great efficacy and without complaint. They are the ones who bear the brunt of combat, who take all responsibility. I have a lot of respect for them, and I feel that he would be a perfect fit for the intelligent leader Jiang Mu.

Long Muxue

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Long Muxue is a dragon, one of the Temeraire-style ones living in China during the 3 Kingdoms period. I see her looking like a Manakete, meaning she's mostly light green with perhaps yellow blotches. She is the silent steadfast woman by Ma Yan's side, and I delight in the fact that they are best friends who feel no romantic attachment, mainly because bestiality is frowned upon in those days, understandably. She acts like a virtuous woman, but of course with the strength of a dragon, and also sharp intellect and a keenness to learn.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Libra

Muxue is peace-loving and constantly striving for perfect harmony.
 
Chinese Zodiac: Rabbit

Muxue is timid but also very sweet and sensitive. She must be careful not to get her feelings hurt by Ma Yan's bluntness sometimes.
 
Nationality/Place of Residence: She started off living in the wild lands but moved to civilisation with Ma Yan
 
Race/Species: Wood Dragon
 
Talents/Skills/Powers: She secretes sweet aromatherapeutic smells to heal wounds and increase morale
 
Hobbies/Pastimes: Reading, writing poetry, coming up with battle strategies
 
Attributes: Mental, Social, Physical


 
Past History

Muxue was born at the end of autumn. Her mother, Long Mu'en, had been a nursing dragon, working beside an elderly human physician, when she fell in love with a young dragon scholar who was a Fire Dragon, Long Huoyang. However, Huoyang was the dragon companion of a wealthy family who disapproved of the lowly status of Mu'en. They viciously broke up the couple, leaving a crying and pregnant Mu'en departing from the town in shame. She and Huoyang, however, had a pact. Once the first drop of snow fell, he would sneak up into the hills and find her. She waited and waited for him. However, unable to adapt to life in the wilderness, she died as her egg hatched, before winter came.

 

When Huoyang finally came, there was only a hatchling there, nuzzled against her mother's dead body. She had been named Muxue before Mu'en died, in anticipation of the snow that would allow her to see her lover again. Huoyang, unfortunately, could not bear to leave the civilisation he belonged in, but neither could he bring his daughter back with him, so he decided to come up once a week to educate her. However, to a young hatchling, once a week was definitely not enough, and she pined for her father everyday while trying to fend for herself in the wild lands. After a few months, her father never returned again.

 

The next time she saw civilisation was when Ma Yan, brave and intoxicated, marched up attempting to beat a dragon. They fought for a bit, but suddenly there was a landslide, and she was trapped among a wreckage of rocks. Ma Yan saved her by lifting away the rocks one by one, and she felt at that time a surge of warmth that she never felt from her father. She decided then and there to follow him, and an alliance was formed.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: A skinny sort of dragon, light green with yellow splotches
 
Fashion Style: None


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: She tends to look down when speaking, and her voice is soft.
 
What does their house look like?: She had made a den for herself out of rocks. It was sparse, with only the barest necessities, and she cleaned up her waste quite conscientiously.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To find her purpose in life and a family she belonged with
 
Short-Term Desires: To make Ma Yan proud and serve his kingdom like her own
 
What are they most proud of?: Her resilience towards life
 
What do they like least?: Not asserting herself enough
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INFJ

Muxue has an uncanny insight into people and situations, as such fuelling her desire to be right and to set things right around her.
 
Virtue: Hope

Despite her humble beginnings, she never loses hope in a better world and a better future.
 
Vice: Envy

She is highly aware of her place, sometimes too much, and is often jealous of others who led better lives than her.
 
Fears: To be lonely again
 
Secrets: She never reveals just how Ma Yan bested her.


 
Likes

Favourite...
 
Colour: White

The colour of flawlessness and perfection
 
Place: In a high spot overlooking the sunrise. She has always enjoyed sunrise, to look forward to a new day when she might see her father again.
 
Food: Tomatoes
 
Music: Music from the pipa, which she thinks gives off the most melodious sound
 
Animal: Rats. They can fend for themselves anywhere, scurrying about in a large, harmonious pack.


 
Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: She assesses it calmly, but will confront it if it means protecting others
 
Rejection: She will sulk quietly but appear utterly unaffected
 
Change: She finds out as many details as she can about it.
 
Loss: She accepts it as something she deserves.
 
Flirting: She is reserved and resistant.
 
Pain: She can bear with a high degree of pain.
 
Stress: She is quite emotionally hardy, and can take it fairly well.
 
Peer Pressure: She may do it just to please the other party.
 
Guilt: It nags at her for a long time and she may choose to avoid it as a result.
 
Being Wrong: She accepts it, but will try to find out what is wrong.
 
Criticism: She accepts it, but inwardly feels ashamed.
 
Being Insulted: She may just walk away.
 
Praise: She tries not to appear conceited.
 
Being Loved: She loves in return, hoping against hope that this love is sincere and genuine.
 
Being Hated: She may get sad about it, but will not actively change the matter.
 
How do they express...
Happiness: She beams widely and her eyes sparkle.
 
Sorrow: She cries in a quiet corner.
 
Anger: She behaves calmly and normally, almost moreso than usual.
 
Love: She may do nice selfless things for the person.
 
Stress: She appears a bit more distracted and contemplative.
 
Important Views: She believes in the class system in society, that women, dragons and poor people will always be on the bottom rung. Being all three, she believes she can and should only be heard after she has contributed in battle. However, this does not stop her from manipulatively suggesting courses of action to Ma Yan.


 
Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: She has no one else to look up to, though she still wishes to meet her father again and show him how much she has achieved since.
 
How they feel about characters in roleplay:

Ma Yan -- he is her benefactor

Shuichang -- he is a dragon who seems different from the rest. He treats her as an equal.


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Class comes before romance. She will marry a man who treats her well, and one of the same station as she.
 
Views on Sex: It is probably secretly enjoyable.


 
Misc

I am a believer of women's rights -- though perhaps not very strongly -- but I do believe that even in the old days, when women were meant to be powerless, some women did find their own ways to exert power. Muxue is a dragon with very strong insights, but she does not think she has the power to voice it. I want to explore the way she gains and uses power in the roleplay, how she can earn recognition despite being willingly trapped in a patriarchal society. She is of course treated much better than women in those days, but she is still the embodiment of womanhood and how Western feminism may be overrated.

Tabitha Royce

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know

Tabitha is one half of the Royce twin sisters who look identical and are always together. However, she finally decided to break out of her restrictive bond with her sister Eileen and suggest that they go home separately, causing harm to befall on Eileen and the story to happen.

Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Sagittarius

Tabitha is honest and easygoing, and often has a blind faith in the world. Her craving for freedom away from her sister led her to suggest the split.

Chinese Zodiac: Snake

Tabitha is a person who relies a lot on gut feelings and instinct, and it was this inner common sense she had that drove her to make decisions throughout the roleplay.

Nationality/Place of Residence: Unknown town, with a fairly small population

Race/Species: Human

Talents/Skills/Powers: Nothing as can be seen, except some wit and strategic thinking

Hobbies/Pastimes: Art is one of her interests

Attributes: Mental, Physical, Social

Past History

Tabitha and Eileen were brought up to be alike as their parents wished. They were discouraged from mixing with others -- the reason never being told -- and ended up not having friends because their family moved so often around the country. They had only each other for playmates, and as they grew older, started to develop strange quirks. For instance, whenever one of them was sick, the other would be too. When one of them fell and injured herself, injuries would also mysteriously appear on the other person.

They moved to this town only a few years ago and were very soon the object of bullying, causing them to retreat even further into themselves.

Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: green eyes, thick blue glasses

Fashion Style: conservative. They wear a long-sleeved blouse and plait skirt.

Other Characteristics

Quirks: Holding hands with Eileen

What does their house look like?: Their bedroom is split evenly into two for her and Eileen, and at first glance both sides look almost the same. However, on closer inspection, there are some subtle differences. For one, Tabitha's side of the room has more artistic signs, such as portraits that she draws, or half-done poems.

Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To be an independent person and follow her dreams

Short-Term Desires: To save her sister and atone to her

What are they most proud of?: She is proudest of winning an art competition back in middle school

What do they like least?: She would want to have more friends

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INFP

She is highly intuitive and is also keen on making the world a better place and finding out her purpose in life.

Virtue: Charity

She is nice, sometimes too nice, to other people's wishes.

Vice: Sloth

There are things that she wants to do, but would rather leave things to status quo than change anything.

Fears: Eileen coming to harm, when she would feel guilty for life

Secrets: She used to have a friend in elementary school, which she secretly preferred to Eileen, but the friend could never tell them apart and Eileen did not like him very much, so they drifted away.

Likes

Favourite...

Colour: Purple

It is an intellectual colour.

Place: In a library, where she can curl up with a book and immerse in her own world.

Food: Fried chicken! Even though it is unhealthy.

Music: Trance or experimental pieces.

Animal: Colourful beetles

Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...

Danger: Thinking quickly how to get through it, or avoid it entirely

Rejection: Look to Eileen for comfort

Change: She embraces change

Loss: Anything but Eileen is fine, but losing Eileen is a big deal

Flirting: She is fine with it, but no one has ever done it before, so maybe she would not know how to handle it

Pain: She is not at all tolerant to pain, and will cry a lot

Stress: She will talk on and on to anyone who hears, mainly Eileen

Peer Pressure: She succumbs outwardly, though resists it inwardly

Guilt: She cannot handle this very well

Being Wrong: She is fine with it, though she gets sore and will avoid the topic in future

Criticism: she is fine with it, but will also feel sore

Being Insulted: She has learnt to shrug it off

Praise: She loves it, of course

Being Loved: She embraces it, though liberty is also important to her

Being Hated: She has learnt to shrug it off too

How do they express...

Happiness: By beaming brightly

Sorrow: She cries

Anger: She bottles it up

Love: She is nice to the person

Stress: She keeps on talking a bit too much

Important Views: She believes that family is important and that she can endure some amount of hardship if it makes them happy.

Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Her family is important to her. Her parents are very nice even if they may have too much fear of the world.

How they feel about characters in roleplay: Eileen is the only person she cares about so far, and although she thinks that Eileen should pursue her own interests, she is appreciative of her care and concern.

Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is something fun to try out when one is older

Views on Sex: Sex occurs after marriage

Misc

This is an example of a character made for a specific roleplay. The roleplay required twins who eventually split apart, and so I designed Tabitha as a person who has her own opinion on a lot of things, but is nice enough not to express them and hurt Eileen's feelings, eventually making Eileen even more clingy towards her. Some inspiration also came from The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd.

Eileen Royce

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know

Misc

Clingy people pose their own challenge to write about. I'm not a clingy person, so it can be hard for me to get into such people's heads. However, I am intent to present Eileen not as a bad or mad person, but as a person who has found somebody to believe wholeheartedly in, to the exclusion of others. She believes herself to be as one with Tabitha, and because of her, she is capable of doing great stuff.

Ocean

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Ocean was born in the circus, and has spent all her life there performing stunts with her mother. Her specialty is jumping through flaming hoops and performing other acrobatic stunts. She is loosely based off Joi (above), with the crucial difference that she has been taught by her mother not to open up to other people. She behaves in an outgoing, friendly manner, but is careful not to reveal any vulnerabilities or inner emotions. In the roleplay, she befriends Allie and slowly falls for her, accepting and embracing her inner self in the process.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Scorpio

She is unexpectedly strong when facing obstacles, and will never let challenges get her down or wipe that cheeky smile off her face.
 
Chinese Zodiac: Dog

She doesn't gossip or engage in drama, and is forthright when it comes to defending the people she cares about.
 
Nationality/Place of Residence: In a travelling circus. She has no fixed abode.
 
Race/Species: Human
 
Talents/Skills/Powers: Acrobatic agility and strength
 
Hobbies/Pastimes: She likes to hang out at the circus when she is free, to the disapproval of her mother
 
Attributes: Physical, Social, Mental


 
Past History

Ocean grew up not knowing her father's identity. Her mother never spoke of it, but she gleaned from the common knowledge of the circus that it was a man who stole her heart and then left her. To her, her mother was a frigid but graceful woman, cold to everyone but herself. Her mother taught her that people could never be completely trusted, except for family, and encouraged her not to socialise too much. However, she grew up to be a cheery, friendly girl, and enjoyed mingling with her friends in the circus and seemed to find fun in everything. Despite that, she internalised her mother's lessons, and one might find that although she was chatty and spontaneous, she would never reveal any secrets to anyone. Her friendliness seemed in some ways like a façade.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: Thin but muscular, with long blonde hair.
 
Fashion Style: She wears heavy makeup and shimmering costumes when performing. Outside of it, she goes with a singlet, shorts and sandals. She likes to tie her hair into a ponytail.


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: Despite her strength, she is unable to open containers or jars.
 
What does their house look like?: She shares a trailer with her mother. It looks neat outwardly, but if you open her closet you'll find a complete mess inside, purposely created to hide the Robot Wars toy collection she owns from her mother.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: None, it seems
 
Short-Term Desires: To have fun
 
What are they most proud of?: Her ability to socialise and have fun without getting into trouble
 
What do they like least?: Being cooped up in the circus
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ENFP

She is warm, enthusiastic and can talk her way out of anything.
 
Virtue: Fortitude

Some may say that a life of performing dangerous stunts is hard, but she seems unfazed.
 
Vice: Greed

She will never get enough of things she wants. Once she has it, she will want more. This includes freedom.
 
Fears: Having her vulnerabilities exposed, being betrayed.
 
Secrets: She always has an internal conflict between friendship and a fear of being betrayed if she trusts a person too much. This is holding her back from investing true feelings into any relationship.

Currently Allie is a friend, and the only person she knows who is roughly her own age.


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance never got her mother anywhere.
 
Views on Sex: It must be fun if people like it.


 
Misc

Although I said that Ocean is loosely based off of Joi, a large part of her is also adapted from Lavi of D.Gray-Man. Like Lavi, she is happy-go-lucky and easygoing. Like Lavi, she has a guardian (Bookman) who warns her against committing too much feelings into her relationships with others. And like Lavi, she inadvertently develops true feelings for someone (in the case of the anime it is only heavily implied) and runs the risk of betrayal.

 

I like writing happy-go-lucky people, because such people are fun to write and also hang out with in person. Lavi is a character I love in D.Gray-Man, and so writing a character much like him comes very naturally to me, and I look forward to developing her as a character.

Krellin

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Krellin is the son of a poor carpenter in a bustling city where money and status are regarded highly. He was actually born to an upper-class family, but was lost in a tussle and picked up by the carpenter as a baby, who kept his true identity a secret. He is one of those problematic street rats who spend their time protesting against the ruling structure and being a bum. He bears a grudge against anyone rich, and would spare no effort in making their lives unbearable and inconvenient.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Taurus

He is ordinarily calm and minds his own business, but will flare up when enraged.
 
Chinese Zodiac: Pig

Although he seems a noisy nuisance, he is caring and chivalrous to his friends.
 
Nationality/Place of Residence: Raeghal, a multi-cultural land with a comfortable climate but unyielding laws
 
Race/Species: Human
 
Talents/Skills/Powers: None
 
Hobbies/Pastimes: Hanging out with his other lower-class friends in the dark alleys of Caspar
 
Attributes: Social, Physical, Mental


 
Past History

The only family Krellin knows about is his father. His father never spoke of his mother, and he never found any of his mother's possessions in the house. In time he would find out that it was because there was no such person, and his father never married and had simply picked him up and raised him. His father had always hoped he would succeed his place as a carpenter, but Krellin was obviously not suited to it. He was not precise in his workmanship and had no interest to learn. And so his father made the sad decision not to hand the business over to him, but to find another successor instead.

 

Having no job, he was asked by the authorities to do menial labour for a pithy sum -- to stop him from causing trouble on the streets. He resented the power over him, but he knew the authorities had the power to inconvenience his father's business if he resisted, and so he did, though not without a lot of protests.

 

He was separated from his biological parents at the age of three months. His family had been attacked by bandits on the streets and in the midst of the commotion, the baby was lost on the street. He was picked up by the carpenter an hour later, who saw in him the chance to have a son he never thought he would have, and to hopefully mould him into his successor. It visibly did not work, but the carpenter had family from then on.

 

His father earns very little from his work, often not enough for decent meals.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: He has brown hair that grows over his shoulder and a stubble, and is quite tall and bony.
 
Fashion Style: Basically a tramp. He wears baggy trousers and patched-up shirts.


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: He likes to scratch his stubble from time to time; the growing phase is always the itchiest.
 
What does their house look like?: The house he shares with his father is almost entirely made up of wooden boards, and has only 1 room. There are 2 beds at the side, a fireplace at the opposite end which is also used for heating food, and the sanitation facilities are outside.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: He doesn't have any in the way of goals, except perhaps to enjoy life and take down the wealthy from their positions of power.
 
Short-Term Desires: He wants to earn more money through illegal means and get himself a hearty meal.
 
What are they most proud of?: His resilience and never-give-up attitude!
 
What do they like least?: Perhaps that he couldn't take over his father's business, and his father is forced to search for a better apprentice
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: ESTJ

He believes only in the here and now, and has a take-charge attitude when he sees a goal he wants to meet.
 
Virtue: Faith

Nothing will get him down, because he believes so much in his own abilities and principles.
 
Vice: Sloth

If he would work hard, or actually focus on a goal, he might be a lot more successful than he is now.
 
Fears: He fears that his actions will affect his father, whom he loves very much. And yet he simply cannot stay put in 1 place and be the model son his father wishes of him.
 
Secrets: He secretly envies the rich, which is why he has such an extreme attitude towards them.


 
Likes

Favourite...
 
Colour: Golden

The colour of prosperity and energy. It also happens to be the colour of money, but that is only an unfortunate coincidence.
 
Place: The dark alleys of Caspar, especially the boisterous taverns
 
Food: Curry, or anything spicy
 
Music: Street music

The jumble of noise and energy is just infectious!
 
Animal: Rat

It may be despised, but its resilience is undeniable


 
Emotional Characteristics:

How do they deal with...
Danger: He runs away for his life. Who doesn't?
 
Rejection: He takes it hard, and this is why he tries not to ask for anything so he will not be rejected in return. He knows that his status means people are more likely to reject him.
 
Change: He likes change. Change makes his days exciting.
 
Loss: He takes it hard as well, as he doesn't have many things to begin with.
 
Flirting: He knows the person is probably only toying with him, but he plays along anyway.
 
Pain: He has endured a lot of physical pain, and can shrug it off easily.
 
Stress: He doesn't handle stress well and tries to avoid whatever the source of the stress is.
 
Peer Pressure: He is rather vulnerable to it, but he also likes manipulating it on others.
 
Guilt: He just blatantly denies that he was wrong and hopes this will shake it off.
 
Being Wrong: Even if he knows he's wrong, he will never admit it to anybody.
 
Criticism: He accepts the criticism humbly if it doesn't come from a member of the upper class. If it does, this will spark a conflict.
 
Being Insulted: He will fight them.
 
Praise: He is secretly uneasy about praise, because it doesn't come to him often.
 
Being Loved: He doesn't really need love, and will see no reason to reciprocate.
 
Being Hated: He doesn't mind being hated, unless it's someone he admires, in which case he'll try to win their favour again.
 
How do they express...
Happiness: By cheering and jumping like an overgrown boy
 
Sorrow: He hangs his head and starts talking in an angsty way before walking off to a corner.
 
Anger: He starts punching everything he sees.
 
Love: He doesn't. Love doesn't need to be expressed.
 
Stress: He starts babbling and doing things distractedly.
 
Important Views: To him, everyone should be regarded on an even footing, regardless of family background (and yet he regards the upper class with deep prejudice). He dislikes money, and yet wants it for himself, in order to be regarded with any respect by the common populace.


 
Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: His father isn't precisely his role model, but he loves the old man for all his flaws and strengths.
 
How they feel about characters in roleplay: He thinks Alivia is an amusingly spoilt and ignorant girl.


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is only for those with money and status. There is no future to be had for true romance among the poor.
 
Views on Sex: It's a good substitute for romance.


 
Misc

Whenever I think of Raeghal, I think of Middle Eastern cities, like the one in Magi. Therefore I visualise Krellin as an Aladdin-ish kind of person (not the Magi Aladdin, the life-size one). He is poor and yet free. There isn't much inspiration for his personality, but I am sometimes reminded of how Singaporeans love to criticise the government, and that critical attitude has been implanted into him.

Roberta Faulkner

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Roberta is elder sister to Mercia and also an Anima user, which means she was given a weapon that is effective against Werebeasts. Her weapon is what she terms the Hyoukaryuu (the Ice-Fire Dragon). She is the quintessential monster slayer, confident and agile. She is also very intelligent and likeable, which boosts her confidence further. She runs the risk of becoming self-absorbed and over-ambitious. To her, it is only natural that people with the greatest ability should take charge of the world, and as such she has a slight prejudice against people whom she deems incompetent.
 
Basic Statistics

Astrological Sign: Gemini

She is curious and restless, and easily fits into any social crowd.
 
Chinese Zodiac: Horse

She is active, quick-witted and a bit of an egoist.
 
Nationality/Place of Residence: Near Fendale, which is near to Boston
 
Race/Species: Human
 
Talents/Skills/Powers: The Hyoukaryuu is the size of a normal rifle, but is weightless in her hands. Its body is bright red (no good for army camouflage), but activates with a white-blue glow around it when being used.
 
Hyoukaryuu can be fitted with normal rifle cartridges, or it can be fitted with specific blanks that grant different abilities. Roberta likes to call them the Bullets of Ice and Bullets of Fire, even though they do not relate at all to ice or fire. They are normal bullets when used on non-Werebeasts.
 
Bullets of Ice – this is her favourite type. Bullets of Ice, when shot through the head, cause thoughts to flood within the target’s mind. Everything that he has ever thought of in his life will return and congregate to over-stimulate his mind. She is also able to read those thoughts as she chooses. The Werebeast is disrupted by his own thoughts, unable to focus, and is thus paralysed and an easy target for subsequent attacks like Bullets of Fire. Effects last as long as she maintains her focus.
 
Bullets of Fire – a little crass, but Bullets of Fire, when shot through the head, lodge themselves comfortably in the middle of the brain and in 1 second cause the brain to explode. At least they do their job effectively.
 
Hobbies/Pastimes: Playing computer games, solving mathematical puzzles
 
Attributes: Mental, Social, Physical


 
Past History

Roberta was born to an upper middle-class family. Her father was a dentist and her mother the manager of a restaurant. She was on relatively good terms with her sister Mercia, who is 1 year younger than her, though she thought Mercia a little difficult to get along with. She lived in relative peace for the first 2 decades of her life, when she enrolled in medical school and pursued a dream of being a doctor.
 
Her dream was disrupted one night when she was on the way home after an overnight study session, and witnessed a brawl between what looked like a giant bear and a man. It tore at the man mercilessly with well-aimed claws, while the man fired at it with a rifle. Roberta gasped, transfixed, as the man seemed to jump lightly from one spot to another in truly acrobatic fashion, and the bear seemed to watch him with a tactical eye. In the end, the bear estimated the man’s position (she never knew they could do that) and grabbed the winning edge, mauling his arm with a ruthless swipe of its claws. The man lay flat on the ground and the bear rushed off, almost as if it were in a hurry.
 
Roberta ran up to him, but he seemed close to death and refused to be sent to a hospital. All he did was press the rifle into her hands, together with a name and phone number, and drew his last breath. Roberta took the rifle and found the person she was supposed to find, who told her all about the Anima and the Werebeasts. The person was about to take the rifle back, but Roberta lied that the man had explicitly given the rifle to her, and so she was allowed to keep it and join their ranks.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: She has what one would consider borderline masculine features. She has a well-developed jaw, a broad chin, a large nose and small eyes. She has a lean but toned physique (her feminine parts being a little less noticeable than she would like). Her hair is long and carelessly tucked to the side or tied in a ponytail.
 
Fashion Style: She is more of a jeans than skirt sort of girl, but would wear blouses and skirts when expected. She likes to be simple and minimalistic, yet stylish enough that she leaves a good impression.


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: She has a tendency to get very excited when she sees people better than herself, or something that challenges her.
 
What does their house look like?: Her bedroom is tidy but contains a lot of things, from books to figurines to shelves of games and the most high-tech computer.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: To become an important person in society
 
Short-Term Desires: To get the hang of her Anima and slay the most Werebeasts
 
What are they most proud of?: Her intellect
 
What do they like least?: She isn't amiable enough to forge connections with important people just yet
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INTJ

She values knowledge and likes strategizing and making judgments based on her observations of the world.
 
Virtue: Hope

Nothing ever gets her down.
 
Vice: Pride

She considers herself very important, sometimes to the unintentional disregard of others' feelings.
 
Fears: failures or embarrassments
 
Secrets: She is secretly happy that Mercia isn't as good as she is, and hence her parents would devote more attention to her.

Being Hated: Well she can't please everyone, regrettably. It isn't one of her life aims so she will not worry too much about it. However, she will try to mend ties with the person if she likes them.
 
How do they express...
Happiness: Laughing and staying awake all through the night telling her friends
 
Sorrow: She will cry if it is really sad.

Love: She spends time with them and buys them things.
 
Stress: She may be less patient than usual, and stay up late by herself doing work

Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: Her parents, and in some ways Mercia, who is her sister after all
 
How they feel about characters in roleplay: She loves Mercia in her own way, but would never acknowledge Mercia to surpass her in anything.

 

She finds Julia an interesting and experienced character and is eager to learn more from her.


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: Romance is cute, but can only be a side hobby
 
Views on Sex: Sex is supposedly enjoyable, so she is eager to try it out too.


 
Misc

I shamefully admit that Roberta was inspired mostly by TriOctium, and a bit of another friend I know IRL. She is not a bad person, but perhaps her views on the world are a little narrow-minded. Not, of course, saying that TriOctium or my friend are narrow-minded. I like adding/exaggerating flaws in my characters to make for a better story.

Mercia Faulkner

 

Most Basic Notes You Have To Know
Mercia is the moody, angsty, sidelined younger sister of Roberta. She can't stand "fakes" and is a little gothic. Other than that, she is also a Werebeast, being able to adopt cat reflexes and abilities.

She is eager to free herself of personal and social conditioning, and can be aloof and standoffish.

Hobbies/Pastimes: Hanging around, watching people, being with friends
 
Attributes: Physical, Mental, Social


 
Past History

Ever since she was a teenager, Mercia had never really been seen around at home. She went out early, came home late at night, and spent most of her days hanging out with delinquents, who dubbed her the “Cold Queen†because she never smiled. Her parents sometimes thought it was because she had been born premature, for she was born 2 months earlier than expected.
 
The turning point came when Roberta started leaving the house more often, sometimes with a secretive grin on her face. Mercia would smell gunpowder on her when she got home. Her parents were concerned, but Roberta would not reveal what she was up to. It was during this time that Mercia became closer to her parents, and for once she felt as if she had taken her sister’s place in her parents’ heart. However, the happiness was short-lived. She underwent her first transformation, and from then on didn’t dare to be near to her family for fear of harming them. One day, she announced that she was going to move out, and never went back to see them again.


 
Physical Characteristics

Biological Characteristics: She shares most of Roberta’s prominent features, such as the deep-set jaw and flat chest, but is much shorter and has even smaller eyes. Her hair is of shoulder-length, and where Roberta’s is brown, hers is black. She has an eternally brooding look on her face and murmurs when she talks.
 
Fashion Style: She wears dark unassuming colours, usually long sleeves and jeggings.


 
Other Characteristics

Quirks: She tends to look down when she talks to people, and stands in a hunch
 
What does their house look like?: Her room looks sparse on the outside, until you open one of her shelves or take a closer look at the table, and you'll see a mess of things thrown around in there.


 
Psychological/Personality Attributes and Attitudes

Long-Term Goals: Nothing much yet
 
Short-Term Desires: To get around and survive, and earn money
 
What are they most proud of?: Her personality. She would never abandon her principles.
 
What do they like least?: That she isn't more capable, or born in a more understanding family
 
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: INFJ

She relies a lot on her intuition, and is protective over those she loves.
 
Virtue: Charity

Despite her gruff demeanour, she has a kind heart.
 
Vice: Wrath

Sometimes her anger gets the better of her.
 
Fears: She fears becoming like the people she dislikes
 
Secrets: She has envied Roberta since young. However, because of this envy, and because Roberta knows she is superior to her, Mercia resents her even more.

Relationships With Others

Important people in their life: She hasn't met her family in ages, and now the people important to her are her friends, like Lisa
 
How they feel about characters in roleplay: Roberta is just as obnoxious as ever

 

Akira seems to be a mysterious person, and yet he feels sincere. She trusts him in spite of herself.


 
Sex/Romantic Life

Views on Romance: She likes romance, but she believes it will never happen to her because of her condition
 
Views on Sex: She might actually like it


 
Misc

Mercia is a little like an overgrown angsty teen, but she is rebellious, and I imagine she would feel reasonably sidelined in a family with someone like Roberta around. Mercia, in a sense, is a very real character, even if she seems kinda stereotypical from the outside. I find it fun to figure out how she might think, and how it has been affected from her childhood.

Matty is a Free magic user, one of the people who use unregulated magic in a society where magic is restricted by the Bariura Empire. He is a young little boy of 10 years old. His father was prosecuted when he was very young for using Free magic, so he is scared about letting anyone know about his powers. He does not have complete control over his powers yet, and mainly uses them to animate his toys.

He is in essence a lonely and innocent young boy (I literally imagine him as a wide-eyed pretty shota) who wants only to be left alone to play with his toy friends.
