Are macarons really cookies, though?

 

Flint's a bit of a strange one who likes those spicy dark chocolate cookies with some bite to them, while Aria basically inhales cinnamon in the form of gingerbread.

I'm tempted to say chocolate chip for Dimitri, but that's probably myself speaking because I am a chocolate addict. If i had to guess, it would probably be sugar cookies, specifically the ones with all of the icing and sprinkles.

Well, when I googled different types of cookies, it showed up so it's considered a cookie in some circles.

Jess'll take any cookie. Chocolate, oatmeal, sugar, you name it and she'll eat it.

 

 

Username:

 

Esko_the_Wolf

 

Name:

 

Jessica Nadolski

 

Age:

 

16

 

Gender:

 

Female

 

Romantic Orientation:

 

Demiromantic (Pansexual)

 

Appearance:

 

Jess is sturdy-built, and currently reaches about 5’8” if she stands tall. Her skin is a light olive color, with a freckle here and there. Her face has a round shape to it, with thick eyebrows and green-hazel eyes often locked in a disapproving look. Her dark brown hair has a slight wave to it, and she prefers to keep it just a little past her shoulders. She wears green-framed glasses that tilt to the left, due to a heavy lense.

 

She has a random way of picking out her clothes; grab undergarments, grab a shirt, grab pants and put them on. She generally wears a casual t-shirt and jeans, with sneakers that often get dirty after a month of purchase. At least, whenever she’s not wearing the uniform.

 

Personality:

 

Jessica is a socially awkward soul. It’s hard for her to even give a friend her number, or to order something at the deli counter. She constantly stumbles and stutters, so often she simply does not talk, or avoids social interactions altogether. She’s also very insecure about her abilities as a human being, and she still convinces herself that she’s less of what she really is.

 

Jess is imaginative, able to conjure images of bizarre things in her mind. She is particularly good at creating images in her head while reading books, part of the reason why she enjoys them so much. She has a habit of getting sucked into a book and not coming out until someone snaps her attention.

 

Over time, she developed into an intellectual but judgemental character. She tends to scan someone over and note every sour note that rings from them, and she has a habit of going by first appearances. However, she does appreciate a friend once she has one, even if her approach is awkward at first. While very resistant to peer pressure, Jess is glad to fulfill a request or two that’s in the reasonable range.

 

History:

 

Her mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis six months after her older sister was born four-and-a-half years prior. For the first few years, the family was managing to hold itself together. However, she can recall several times when the door was closed and her parents were arguing, and she had barely a clue as to what was going on. There were a few fond memories that she sometimes will share if prodded, but she was too young then to capture all of it.

 

Around the time that she hit five, the house was falling apart under their feet. Her father declared bankruptcy, and the mom had to be sent to a nursing home. With no-where else to go, the rest of the family moved in with their grandparents for the next years.

 

Jess used to be a pretty cocky kid. She thought highly of herself, and paid no mind as to how annoying she was. She thought she was a master artist and awesome at humor, and thought people liked her when they really did not. She never really had friends, she just thought she did. That is, until she turned eleven years old. That’s when the typical preteen angst hit her, and she realized that her drawing wasn’t good, that she wasn’t liked, and that she had no friends. That’s where her current personality began to develop. She retreated into a shell that couldn’t be penetrated, and she had on-and-off waves of depression.

 

Then,she hit twelve and her father wanted to move himself and the kids with his girlfriend in another district. At first, she was devastated at leaving the district she grew up in and going to another. She thought she still had something to hold onto when she honestly didn’t. So, when the move was complete and the school year started, Jess realized that she hadn’t missed anything back there, and lost whatever emotional attachment she had to her previous town. However, still stuck in a cloud of social anxiety, she didn’t give the kids at the new school a chance. She stayed quiet, she ignored that nice girl in the hallway, she kept her face in books. Despite having a new chance, she wasted it.

 

At the word of the academy, Jess dropped everything and took the exam. She often felt a tug for adventure, and here adventure was, laying past that exam. Killing demons sounded like an adventure she wanted. So, she took the test and passed. Ignoring the disapproval of her parental figures, she packed her bags and left for Heaven’s Gate Academy.

 

Element:

 

Earth

 

Branch Color:

 

A chocolate-y brown.

 

Weapon:

 

They’re a set of silvery twin blasters in the shape of Eastern-style dragons that wind up the forearms. The right one fires sharp rocks -and occasionally a sweet wad of dirt- that vary in size. The left one fires whatever combination element she forms with her partner.

 

Armor:

 

Her armor looks like it was spit out from a cyber convention, or from TRON. The suit itself is black, except for the white stripe that travels down the middle, with two crossing black strips running over it. A helmet covers her head, with one pointy protrusion on each side of it. She sees out of a tinted visor that blocks vision of her face, and it offers a degree of protection for her face and eyes.

 

Other:

 

Over time, Jess developed an eating habit. She grazed the food stores and did her best to cover it up; after the move, she stopped for a while, but then picked up again as she developed better ways to cover up after trial-and-error. She tends to try and eat as much as she can, but tries to be subtle about it.

Gender: Female

Romantic Orientation: Panromantic Demisexual

Appearance: Teresa has straight, fine black hair that approaches the bottom of her ribcage, with bangs that reach her thin, dark eyebrows. It’s normally kept in a high ponytail, with two thick locks left free to frame her face. Her face is square, and her large, deep-set eyes are dark brown. Her skin is a clear, medium brown. Standing at 5’6”, she’s taller than average, and has a slender, column-shaped figure. Generally, she has a relaxed, casual posture. Her fingers are long and thin, and her left fingertips are calloused. There is a small, slightly reddened mark on the left side of her neck, caused by pressure from her violin.

 

Her casual clothing tends towards jeans and oversized hoodies, though she’s more than glad to wear fancy dresses if the situation calls for it. She wears a few accessories: her rectangular, wire-framed glasses, a pair of black, bulky headphones, and a silver necklace chain that holds her Branch. The headphones are wireless, and are often seen around her neck while not in use.

guess who stole leo's outfit (i mean i even named the gun after him) and used bits from characters she never got to use

 

 

Username: Doctortear

Name: Opal Marit

Age: 15

Gender: Female

Romantic Orientation: Homoromantic

Appearance: Standing at around 4’10” (147cm), Opal is a rather short individual. She has a natural round build and can easily be considered chubby. Though large, Opal is somewhat muscular with broad shoulders and short limbs. She has pale, reddish skin that is absolutely coated with thousands of freckles. Her round, childish face makes her appear to be far younger than she truly is. Were it not for her excessive amount of makeup, most people would think Opal was three years younger. Her cheeks, which are faintly lavender thanks to some special blush, are rather plump and firm. Her short thin mouth, that lies underneath their button nose, is glossed over in deep violet lipstick. Her icy blue eyes are highlighted with black eyeliner. Opal has long luxurious eyelashes that curl upwards. She wears a sparkly purple-blue eyeshadow that brings out the pale hues of her eyes. Opal’s extraordinarily long, wavy, platinum blonde hair reaches down to her rear and has a small ponytail at the very end. She wears her school outfit as strictly as possible with a flattened collar, buttoned blouse, and double knotted shoes.

Personality: Opal proves to be rather shy and reclusive individual who easily becomes flustered when approached by strangers. Her words are spoken softly and she struggles with making eye contact with strangers. She desperately clings to those she is familiar with and holds a great fear for the unknown. Generally, Opal is a rather compassionate whose cordiality can easily be taken advantage over. Her feelings are easily hurt and she visibly gawks and flinches when said feelings have been stepped on. Opal is a complete pushover and will easily bend to the demands of her peers without much resistance. She is rather guarded when it comes to personal matters and will not hesitate to shut somebody out if they do or say something she does not find favorable. Opal is a complete pushover and will easily bend to the demands of her peers without much resistance. She’s insecure in regards to both herself and her future

 

Once one pushes past Opal's bashful side, they can see her more outgoing manner. Ironically, she is far more frilly than she lets on to believe with a more swank deposition when in the presence of those she is comfortable with. She can be somewhat too open when in affable conversations with friends; however, Opal will promptly apologize for her behavior if she thinks her words have caused harm and revert back to her coy persona. She fancies idle chatter to great lengths; as long as a conversation isn't obscene, Opal will be glad to contribute to it. She is utterly fascinated by how talented other people are and is quick to compliment someone if she can gather the courage to do so. Contrary to what others may think, Opal loves to dream about an optimistic future. She often spends hours on end, daydreaming about fantastical realms where the stress of real life is non-existent and where she can roam around a beautiful landscape with not a single worry.

History: Before Opal was even born, her mother had planned out her entire future for her. She wanted Opal to become a well-known politician as well as a jack of all trades. As such, she was much harsher with Opal than most parents were with their kids. By the time her peers were first learning multiplication, Opal had already moved onto Geometry. Opal’s excellent grades were a result of her mother furiously teaching her at home. Opal’s mother made her perform in all sort of events including beauty pageants, community service, various clubs, and competitions among other things. While Opal was good at academics, she did not enjoy all of the various events her mother made her attend. On several occasions, Opal tried to explain her mother that she didn’t want to do everything she wanted her to do, all times of which she got lectured for hours on end about how she didn’t know what the “real world” was like and she would end up living in a cardboard box on the side of the street if she didn’t listen to her mother’s wishes.

Opal loathed her mother for taking complete control over her life and she despised her father for never trying to stop her mother; but, knowing that they were her parents, Opal never did anything more than complain. Heaven’s Gate was seen as a challenge to be conquered by Opal’s mother. Opal, of course, just saw the test as yet another random exam that her mother wanted her to take. Passing the test didn’t seem like anything special until Opal’s mother told her that she would be packing up and heading to Heaven’s Gate. Confused and distraught, Opal was hurriedly thrown out of her house and onto the boat heading to the faraway island. Now alone and with absolutely no experience on making decisions on her own, Opal is faced with saving the world from demons even though she hasn’t made a single big decision in her entire life.

Element: Water

Branch Color: Dark Purple

Weapon: When transformed, Opal wields a minigun that would easily outweigh her if it wasn’t made of magic. The minigun itself is the same base black as her armor with golden designs etched onto the barrels. The gun shoots a variety of water bullets along with bullets composed of whatever element Opal gained from being Linked. In honor of her pet rabbit that died when she was young, she named her minigun gun Leo after him.

Armor: Contrary to her weapon, Opal’s armor is much more Medieval in style.She adorns black armor with golden accents that covers her from the neck down. Such armor consists of pointed chest armor, shoulder pauldrons, kneecap armor, shin guards, bracers, neck guard, gauntlets, and armored elbows. Underneath the armor she wears dark purple and navy cloth. Said cloth comes in the form of a short tabard that ends a little above her knees. In addition to a tabard, the cloth also consists of a ridiculously large popped collar and a short cape that reaches to her mid-back.

Other: Although she has dabbled in numerous subjects, Opal has no idea what she’s really interested in. As such, she’s afraid she’ll never be able to become happy when adulthood comes rolling around. Oddly enough, Opal always wished she had an older sibling to help guide her through life.

A. Will is making a ship building club as a plot device as he is working to craft a ship he wants to use in battle. This will take quite a few posts and he will have flashbacks whenever he's building it, of times back in Kirkwall and even back further that that, before they moved there...

 

B. Freyja wants to join either Will's club or an athletics club. The latter is self-explanatory. How many clubs can we join?

Most of the clubs will happen offscreen except for a specific plot-related club so, it's theoretically possible to be in a very, very large number of clubs.

Good because Will needs to build his ship.

And ship others with his ship.

So he can put people in the ship while he ships them.

[ adele voice ] hello...it's me

aaa dang this is rlly late and i apologize for that, but hello ; o ;

 

Username: XiaoChibi

Name: Trent Kim ( 金偉傑 / jīn wěijié )

Age: 16

Gender: Agender - he/him, they/them

Sexual/Romantic Orientation: Demiromantic bisexual

Appearance: Trent has a triangular face shape and messy black hair with his fringe parted away from his face. He is 5’6” and has dark brown eyes with occasional bags under his eyes when he decides to stay up late playing video games. Due to years of indulgence in the latter and farsightedness, Trent wears silver circular rimmed glasses. Trent tends to walk quietly in small steps and has an unintentional habit of frightening people when approaching from behind. He has a toned body from swimming and running throughout the years and has a long torso. Trent favors wearing dress shirts under sweaters. His Branch is pinned on his shirt collar in the form of a collar chain. On his left hand, Trent wears a silver bracelet. Trent is ambidextrous, but he tends to favor his right hand more. His uniform is also neat and clean.

Personality: Like his grandmother, Trent is an introverted individual and his actions weigh more than his words. As a result, Trent unintentionally leaves the impression that he’s snobbish when he simply has nothing to say. He tends to laugh easily and dislikes the way he smiles. As a result, Trent prefers not smiling with full teeth and half-smiles instead. Like his element, Trent has no issue when it comes to adapting to situations and can hide his personality in order to appease others. Trent enjoys spending his free time with his phone (he downloaded an emulator in order to store his favorite games in) or texting his little sister.

 

When in the presence of his loved ones, Trent softens up and dotes on them. He has an interest in flowers and tries to decorate places with flower chains and the like.

 

After his grandmother’s death, Trent began to develop the fear of disappointing his family, and his parents in particular. As a result, Trent decided that he’d be better off improving himself for the sake of receiving his parent’s praise. He has a tendency to doubt his decisions and worries if his parents would approve.

 

Despite his insecurities, Trent has a competitive spirit after years of participation in sports. He enjoys writing lists and often saves phrases or quotes on his phone. Trent is also a good listener and doesn’t mind hearing about his peer’s problems and tries to solve their issues. He doesn’t mind critique and when the opportunity arises, Trent asks for ways that he could better himself. When working in groups, Trent is often uptight because of the fear of letting his group down.

 

With his acceptance into Heaven’s Gate, Trent would like to fight for the sake of his siblings.

History: Born to a doctor and a nurse, Trent had a normal childhood. Since his parents worked night shifts at the hospital, he was raised by his grandparents. As a child, he spent his time playing with his dog, Logan, and his older brother, Henry. When Trent was six, his sister, Claire, was born. During his years at school, Trent excelled in science and wanted to become a doctor like his mother. In middle school, Trent received his first video game controller. As an eleven year old, Trent was fascinated with the graphics and the game plot, which jumpstarted his growing interest in video games. Trent was often seen reading books or fiddling with his phone during his teenage years. With parents in the medical field, Trent has an extensive knowledge of epidemiology and anatomy, along with how to care for people.

 

In 5th grade, Trent began to run for the track and cross country team at his elementary school. He continued running throughout middle and high school in the fall. When he was six, Trent began swim lessons and continued swimming for his school’s swim team during the spring. He also began to take piano lessons at the same age and completed his testing for the highest level in his freshman year of high school (although he barely passed).

 

Initially, Trent decided to participate in his extracurricular activities because his parents suggested them. The only activity Trent willingly decided to participate in was swimming because he liked the competitive spirit during swim meets. It was only after Trent realized that he had some merit in his athletic and musical abilities was when he started to channel more effort into the activities.

 

Trent’s interest in video games began to take a toll on his grades and sleep during his freshman and sophomore years of high school. While his parents began to praise his older brother for being accepted into prestigious colleges, Trent began to grow jealous of his brother’s success and the amount of attention he received from their parents. Trent began to lose focus on school and resorted to video games in order to forget about his problems, resulting in his suspension from the swim and track teams. At the end of the first semester of his sophomore year, Trent had spiraled down from an honors student to barely passing his classes with straight C’s. As a result, Trent’s parents began to apply pressure on their son to succeed and raise his grades. In response, Trent argued that he was “perfectly happy” with the way he was and refused to listen, despite the additional pleas from his grandparents.

 

However, tragedy struck the Kim family when their grandmother died during the summer due to heat stroke. Throughout Trent's life, he was close with his maternal grandmother. Since the day she died, Trent began to wear a silver bracelet in honor of her memory. After her death, Trent began to reform his past behaviors due to the guilt he felt.

 

Trent is fond of his younger sister, Claire, and is rather overprotective when it comes to her. He has a love-hate relationship towards his older brother Henry due to his parents favoring their eldest son over him. When it comes to his parents, Trent harbors a slight resentment towards them due to their large absence in his life because of their careers. At times, Trent sometimes felt that his grandparents were his ‘true’ parents.

 

He decided to take the exam in order to prove his self worth to his parents. Trent had the desire to do something that his brother wouldn’t think of doing. If he passed, Trent hoped that he would gain his parents’ respect.

Element: Water

Branch Color: Blue bird (#4973AB)

Weapon: Camellia –– A silver lance with gold accents. Near the base of the handle, there are twin bells attached to red string. The blade of the lance is ornate and is suitable for long distance attacks with a spiked pommel.

Armor: Ambrosia –– Trent’s armor is silver with gold and blue decorations. The armor is heavy, but years of sports and weight training has aided Trent in maneuvering with his armor; however, he occasionally has difficulty evading attacks.

Other: Trent has an interest in a certain farm simulation RPG on his phone’s emulator and has a habit of cracking his knuckles. He is half Korean and Chinese, but Trent identifies more with his Chinese side. Since he was raised by his maternal grandparents, Trent is fluent in Mandarin and has basic knowledge of Cantonese from several years in Saturday School. At home, his family calls him by his Chinese name and Trent doesn't mind his peers calling him Weijie.

This is a WIP and I'll be working on it more and more, I promise

 

Username: zakku_uchiha

Name: Sienna Brunilda

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Romantic Orientation: Bisexual, Poly

Appearance: Standing in at just around 5'5" and weighing no more than a hundred and twenty pounds, Sienna is a dark skinned and fairly endowed young girl. A small, angular face with a short pointed nose and petite ears, her amber eyes are probably the most noticeable feature on her face, aside from the short cut, platinum blonde (bordering white) hair. Atop her head, she has a mint gray colored head band that holds back her bangs from getting in her face.

With a thin neck and slim shoulders, Sienna has a rather pronounced chest, sitting in the mid C cup category. With years of training and conditioning as both a dancer and an acrobat, Sienna has a slim tight core, toned arms and legs and a well shaped posterior.

As for clothing, Sienna has a variety of clothing she chooses, her work clothes consisting of a dancers outfit that bares the midriff, has small golden bells hanging around the edges to accentuate her body movements and thin pieces of fabric lining both the outfit and hanging from her wrists. Then there is her acrobatic uniform which is a blazing red leotard with golden swirls embroidered in various spots as well as a short skirt around her waist.

Casual clothes vary in degree, but most commonly include a pair of baggy sweat pants and a t-shirt. Color doesn't matter terribly much, but if she is dressed to impress, she has a pair of denim overall shorts, a black and white striped long-sleeved top, a pair of dark leather buckled shoes, and a straw hat with a black ribbon wrapped around it. Yet, one thing is consistent with all of her outfits and that is a gold necklace that has been adjusted to fit snugly around her neck rather than dangle freely.

 

A visual representation of Sienna in her armor: Sienna

 

Personality: Sienna is a bright, energetic and lively young girl, fascinated by almost everything and almost always willing to learn something new. With two older brothers as her primary sources of inspiration, Sienna can come across as very boyish sometimes, but also has a strong feminine side when regarding her relationships. Being free-spirited, Sienna can also come across as rather possessive, both with personal belongings as well as friends and those she holds close to her heart. If befriended, no matter how long someone has known her, Sienna is always willing to lend a helping hand.

History: Long before Sienna was even conceived, her father Raziya Elbenhawy, was part of a traveling cultural performance group as an acrobat and a musician. During his time in Europe, he met a lovely young blonde Italian woman named Karina Brunilda after the day had ended and they almost immediately fell for one another. Three years would pass until they married and another six before Sienna was conceived. All the while, Karina learned various forms of dance and cultural necessities to be a beneficial part of the performance.

 

With two older siblings and four younger, Sienna was practically the middle child and had to work extra hard to make herself stand out more. When she was between the ages of three to four, she began participating in her parents performances as a dancer, doing her best each time and learning from her mistakes. Four years would pass until she took a higher roll in an acrobatics performance, usually in forms of balance and flexibility. By the age of ten, Sienna was drawing in a crowd of her own and earning the title 'Crimson Fire Dancer' by the crowds.

Stepping back a couple of years, while performing in Japan, Sienna took a large interest in their traditional clothing, donning a red Happi coat with her performance outfit, and learning the polearm fighting style of nagitajutsu. This was used in tandem with other polearm fighting techniques to add a unique contrast in her personal performance, a sort of dance regime with a glaive.

 

It was when she had turned fourteen that she heard of the academy, but it would be a year later when she finally able to convince her parents to allow her to take the entrance exam and attend.

Element: Air

Branch Color: White with mint grey swirls

Weapon: Shu - A glaive-style polearm, with a long red hilt roughly the same height as Sienna and a two and a half foot straight-edge blade on the end. Adjusted just below the blade end is a long gray-mint colored ribbon, embroidered with gold edging and Shu written in the center. At the opposing end of the glaive, a gold ball cups the end of the pole that can be used for sheer blunt damage on her opponents and to prevent scratching up the floor.

Armor: Ashkit - Sienna's armor has the appearance of crimson red, Japanese-style Happi coat with mint gray trimming and gold edgings. Yet, layered into the outfit is a very durable chainmail that is both light and easy to move around in, allowing her to sustain both freedom of movement and speed without sacrificing too much in defense. Around her waist is a thick, mint gray sash that holds the outfit close to her body. A set of crimson red, leather-based fingerless gloves are interwoven with a set of similarly colored leather gauntlets that stretch just below her elbows. As for her feet, she has a pair of what looks like a pair of mid-calf high black socks with leather soles on the bottom and extra leather covering the top of her foot and up the length of her shin, ending at the edge of the sock.

Other: Currently, Sienna is in a polyamorous relationship with Karna Korolyov and Violet Ayesfield. Also, this semester marks her second year at the academy.

(( EDIT: Now complete! References (if you didn't understand anything from my description of his appearance and armored Link look) are here and here respectively. Oh, and here's a reference for the spear. ))

 

 

Username: KuroKishi

 

Name: Karna Korolyov

 

Age: 17

 

Gender: Male

 

Romantic Orientation: Heteroromantic

 

Appearance: Standing at around 6’1” with a really pale complexion, Karna would most likely be considered a very interesting case of albinism, but his skin tone can mainly be attributed to his Russian heritage. His build is relatively lithe – especially because of his lengthy extremities - but he is definitely not scrawny and packs more than most think below his clothing. With a oval face consisting of a sharp chin and narrow jaw, along with a small nose and thin lips, his features can be mostly considered to be on the soft side. His eyes are set slightly deeper and bear a sky blue color, then are completed by soft lines of crimson eyeliner below them that flow together with his eyelashes to form around the eyes. The most interesting thing about him, however, has to be his hair – with its strangely natural platinum gray color, it remains heavily stylized in strands that form a spiky flow from the front to the back of his head and toward his left side at the fringe.

 

Clothing-wise, Karna usually goes for whatever he finds comfortable and somewhat intriguing. This means that he usually wears things such as hoodies, sweaters, suits and shirts, along with loose pants, trousers and jeans. His laid-back style is usually present on his clothing with open collars on shirts and suits, as well as the lack of his tie, but his Branch is kept at all times in view on his chest with a sharp necklace ending in the vibrant stone. A small earring also is seen on his left ear at all times, but serves no other function.

 

Personality: A laid-back, relatively lazy and quiet person, Karna may be considered asocial to some extent. He prefers the comfort of himself and/or his Link partners and, as such, will usually avoid being the center of attention, but will not stray from chatting with random people or others he has seen only a few times if he is even vaguely interested. When actually engaged and willing to talk, Karna is a relatively charismatic and intriguing individual. His calm tone, coupled with the vague Russian accent of his soft voice and his usual lack of seriousness, make his speech almost a soothing and relaxing melody for others to listen to, whilst his choice of words and occasional quips and jokes can help flesh out a good impression in the ones he speaks with.

 

Seeming almost detached from reality and lacking emotions at most times, Karna may seem strange to some with his readiness to crack jokes even about serious themes and dangers they may be in – however, although not too different from his usual self, the real Karna wears a mask that allows him to seem unphased and unaffected by whatever is happening to him. Established early on in his life to allow him to read into various situations without additional mental bias on his own end, the young man has kept up this trait of his even to this day and still regularly relies on it to both manipulate others’ impressions and his own truths.

 

When it comes to combat, Karna’s demeanor manages to temporarily break out of its asocial shell and become an active driving and commanding force on the battlefield. His eyes constantly scan the situation and assess it on-the-go whilst he fights, allowing him to plan out actions that can ease their efforts or turn the tides in their favor, if they were to find themselves in a problematic engagement. Of course, not everyone may agree with what he thinks is right – however, that is not his goal from the start, anyway. His main and only idea is to keep himself, his Links and other friends out of harm’s way by either dealing with the danger as quickly as possible or using everything he has to assist them one-by-one until he runs out of energy and is forcefully removed from a Link.

 

History: Karna’s creation began after a rather standard night of Russian drinking for a shady job entrepreneur on an exchange visit in India and a vaguely intrigued young waitress that charmed him in for a night of shared passion. Perhaps it was how his mother intended for things to go or perhaps it was not – the only thing he knows is that after a few months, his mother sent a letter to Russia and informed his father of his existence, to which the man replied by providing the necessary funds for her to move from her country to his side. Agreeing, she took the chance to escape her country and flew out to Russia, where she remained until she was close to giving birth.

 

Born on a cold, late November morning in the mining town of Vorkuta, Karna’s only family he even knew of was his mother and a ‘distant’ uncle that would occasionally visit the city to check on them. In truth, his mother – named Anika on birth – was instead known by him as Katja, and his uncle – an informant for his father – was simply called Stefan. Exposed early to religion by both his mother and uncle on various occasions, Karna quickly learned of both Hinduism and Catholicism respectively as well as a few more from his mother, but never really managed to feel the same way about them as his two important life figures did. Instead, his main interest remained in academics, which is why he came out of early school fairly quickly and jumped into Gorniy Kolezh to study.

 

Though Karna never really did complete his study in the college, as he broke off his study to get to the new Heaven’s Gate Academy just before turning 15, he still was smart enough for his age. After his father found his desire, for which he would be preparing by gathering money for a whole year, he instead handed the ‘uncle’ a solid sum to pass to his son and only tell him that it was a scholarship of sorts from his school. Confused, but unwilling to pass up the chance, he nabbed the cash and made his way to Heaven’s Gate, leaving everything behind.

 

His departure was… filled with a lot of complications, but not for himself. Whilst he managed to enlist after the entrance exams and began his training with his Branch, his mother was promptly sent off back to her homeland now that she no longer was of use to the man behind the scenes. It was only after a year or so after sending letters home and not receiving anything in return that he finally got an answer from a man only known as “Mr. Korolyov”. In it, a lengthy explanation written by his father explained a lot of things that Karna never had learnt from his mother about his life, including her real heritage and the reason he had never met a father. Also explaining a lot about his other family side and members, it then finished with only one request – that for his own safety, Karna should never ever seek out his mother or his father’s side of the family. Ever.

 

Although most would be unsettled by such news and probably do something brash… Karna felt strangely at ease. After being allowed by his father to carry his last name in the same letter, the young man took him up on the offer and, with the new name, began a fresh new cycle of his life. There was nothing for him to return to, perhaps, but at the same time, there was nothing for him to worry about and think of at all times. It would be soon that he would meet Sienna, followed by Violet a few months later, which both would go on to act as his emotional support for his own life’s reboot and allow him even more easily to embrace this new reality of his.

 

Element: Fire

 

Branch Color: A core of Vermillion Red, surrounded by golden stripes at the bottom that create the illusion of a burning flame. [#E34234 and #FFD700]

 

Weapon: Ascalon – a spear completely in blood red with a design in the central part much like engraved vines that ends in a double-barbed blade tip. Though seemingly thin, the weapon is surprisingly durable and hard to damage. Glinting ever so slightly in Karna’s hands, its ominous glow acts as a warning to his enemies.

 

Armor: Kavacha Kundala – named so after the armor of his namesake – Karna, the demigod from Hindu mythology - Kavacha Kundala manifests itself on Karna as a very intricate set of armor that is seemingly fused with his body. Covering his usually pale skin in dark red fiery shapes, it then manifests golden armor with hints of white embers along its surface down from his elbows to the tips of his fingers and from the top of his hips to his feet. Following that, a large cape bursts out from his shoulders that reaches almost completely around him and flows from bright yellow colors to dark reds to mimic the visuals of a solar flare. Finally, his hair grows slightly in length and turns a vibrant crimson color, whilst his eyes become black and receive a golden iris.

 

Other: Strangely enough, even when his weapon is related to Catholicism and his armor comes from Hindu beliefs, Karna himself seems to not have any religious ideals of his own. Also, he is ambidextrous and has a (undiscovered) knack for singing. He's currently a second-year Senior that is considered one of Sienna Brunilda's Link partners.

@lu: omg cute drawings

 

The WIPs have been added as reserves on the second post, bringing our total (reserves included) character tally to 22. Earth is getting left in the dust again (no pun intended).

 

Because we have such a large number of characters and such high interest, I have decided to keep the RP moving; as such, after a week or two I will start moving characters around for you. If you can't post for whatever reason, just drop me a line through Skype or PM with your character's intentions, and I'll make them do what you want them to do. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
