Final character! I'm gonna try and get my first post in when I can.

 

Username: Mikasa361

Name: Evonna Durand

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Romantic Orientation: Heteroromantic

Appearance: Evonna has a round face with narrow hazel eyes. She has more of a pear shape, with a B-cup breast size, but her shoulders are slightly broad. She has toned arm muscles. Her hair is medium length and in tight caramel brown curls. In uniform, her ribbon is around her neck French-style. She has small pearl earrings in her lobes, one set. Evee’s skin is a light toffee color. She stands at about 5'7".

When she’s out and about, not wearing her uniform, Evonna wears a variety of different clothes, typically crop tops, skinny jeans, loose T-shirts, shorts, skirts paired with leggings,and either sneakers or tall boots. Sometimes she’ll dress like a punk. Usually she wears her hair down.

Evonna doesn't care too much about her uniform appearance, but she does make some effort to keep it neat. She keeps two buttons on her shirt open, and she doesn't tuck her shirt in.

Personality: Evonna is a rather tomboyish, reserved girl who typically spends her time alone or with a small group of friends. Very rarely does she make friends, and she’s not necessarily looking to do so. Her temper is rather short, and she is more than willing to get herself into a fight when provoked.

Under this layer though, Evonna has a kind heart. She’s a bit of punk, often listening to alternative and punk bands. She absolutely enjoys music and is often seen with earphones in her ears. Sometimes Evonna watches soap operas when she’s alone at home (it’s a guilty pleasure) while noshing on her mother’s white chocolate macadamia cookies. She is a diligent student, and you may also find her studying in her spare time.In school she typically doesn’t contribute to the discussion unless it’s something she is passionate about- History or music. Outside of school, she also kickboxes, which helps control her temper. While most people vent, Evonna will punch something. But under that, she’s just a shy girl who doesn’t want to cause problems.

History: Evonna was born in France, to a Cameroonian mom and a French/Estonian father. Her parents went missing, leaving her and her elder brother Jehan behind. Jehan, who was five at the time, has slightly better memories of them than Evonna, who was only two. They were adopted by a French couple who resided in Quebec. Evonna is aware of this- her parents had told her when she was eight and inquired why she didn’t look at all like them. This didn’t come as too much of a shock to her, but she’s not as close to her parents as she was before. Sometimes she still wonders why they hadn’t told her earlier.

Growing up, Evonna typically clung to her brother, and as a result got to know a couple of Jehan’s friends. Sometimes she would get into fights with them just for fun. That was how she learned how to fight. When a certain person in school started to pick on her for being adopted, they would often find themselves getting the daylights beaten out of them. It was after several of these incidents that Evonna’s parents got her into kickboxing, to take her anger at that bully out on… Well, anything but that person’s face, frankly.

Throughout high school she decided that History was her passion, and she thought that was what she wanted to pursue in college. That, or she had hoped to get into the music business. But with the news of demons and Heaven’s Gate, She saw a new window of opportunity… One that could not only keep her family safe, but maybe she would be able to find out more about where she came from...

Element: Water

Branch Color: Dark blue that fades into a dark purple. Shimmery~

Weapon: Evonna’s weapon is, simply put, a pair of kickboxing gloves. They are durable material and colored a deep bluish purple, with the kanji for “water” etched on the side of the right one.

Armor: (Reference image) Evonna's armor is significantly heavier than Lavender's and Peridot's armor- it is in typical knight fashion. She wears a plate to cover her torso along with a thick leather apron, and her shins and her lower arms are covered in steel armor. Leather that is slightly thinner than the apron covers any area that is not already a steel plate or chain mail.

However, there are a few tweaks from the reference image: For starters, instead of plates covering her shoulders, they're covered in chain mail for flexibility. And included is a helmet similar to this: (Cynder armor), only it covers the entire back of her head, modified for a human head. In addition, the overall pattern on her armor is the same as provided in the image- silver with very intricate patterns. Only the patterns are accented ever so subtly with the same blue/purple as her Branch. Also she has no sword, and there is no leather on her hands, and the lower arm plates are slightly shorter toward the wrists to accommodate her weapon.

Other: Evonna wears her Branch as a hair pin on the left side. And although she was adopted, she still speaks fluent French thanks to her adopted family.

(and in reference to one of your earlier posts, any kind of cookie with chocolate is Lav's favorite. German chocolate is the ish, yo. Perri is obsessed with cashews, so anything with cashews on it. And Evonna is a glutton for cookies in general, but she loves sugar cookies and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies in general. Mmmm....)

When was this sheet posted? I missed it, buried under all the other RPs. I'll give it a look in a second.

 

EDIT@Mikasa: I'll need a clearer description of her armor and perhaps her appearance as well (build, how she wears her uniform), but I think the rest looks alright. She will definitely get into a fight with Aria at some point. I'm looking forward to see that mess.

Antonio/Aria

Latoya/Matt

Will/Freya

Finally, she's finished.

 

Username: Coryn02

Name: Inari Laukkanen

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Romantic Orientation: Heterosexual

Appearance: Inari has beige skin, blond hair, a round face, high cheekbones, and light turquoise eyes that have a look which suggests indomitability. Her eyes are also slanted. Her physique is muscular but wiry, being thin from years of avoiding decadence. Her body posture is perfectly straight, but she usually has one foot behind the other out of habit. Her long and wavy hair is woven into a single tight low braid.

Personality: Inari's usually a very outgoing person, the sort who will say hello to anyone they know by virtue of her own good will. She is talkative, loyal, and respectful of others. Inari is willing to step out of her comfort zone and try something new for the sake of a novel experience. At the same time, she has a serious side, particularly when the matter of demons arises. If Inari sees the need for it, she'll adopt a stoic attitude, for the sake of focus and efficiency, with relentless determimation. On the inside, she is a very proud person, and treats other cultures with respect because of how much she values her own. Inari will never forget a wrong committed against her, though she may forgive the person at least in the short term.

History: Born and raised in the ways of Sami reindeer husbandry and Finnish city life, Inari lives what is essentially two lives. Her multi-generational family carries on the ways of their ancestors while supplementing it with modern advancements where possible. This is, of course, quite necessary given that Finland is one of the current problem areas for demon appearances. Inari learned from a young age how to skin animals, be keenly aware of her surroundings, and even fire a shotgun. Through these methods, the Laukkanen family has succeeded in preventing casualties for years and slain many demons, though injuries are still quite common. Between migrations, Inari also visited her family in the cities so she would understand life outside her family, and also to educate herself in more scholarly disciplines, such as medicine and science. In recent years, Inari's family came to learn about Heaven's Gate, and only she applied since they could not bear the thought of sending all their children so far away from home. Inari herself has sworn bloody retribution against the demons who have tormented her family and killed her countrymen. She is a second-year student, having already spent a year at the school.

Element: Fire

Branch Color: A vibrant, deep red like the leaves of fall.

Weapon: Snowfall - A copper warhammer with a handle of wrapped hide cord. The head is studded with copper bolts, and the other side has a downward hook. The overall length of the weapon is around the same length as one of Inari's arms, and the head is about as wide as four of her fists put together.

Armor: Inari's link armor is a predominantly blue dress, with red and yellow embroidery on the collar; it also lacks sleeves. The hem has a red around blue border, and her shoes are black furred winter boots. She also wears a red and yellow shawl bordered by yellow and blue, which extends into a cape bearing an emblem. On the emblem is a red bear and a blue reindeer, chasing the moon and sun respectively in a circle within a diamond of yellow. Inari wears a necklace of animal teeth, beads, and carved stones. Her hair is also free-flowing.

Other: Inari's favorite cookie is the reverse chocolate chip cookie (not that she eats cookies often). Her leitmotif is

. I also have a document here that describes much of the history the Sami people have with demons and the Heaven's Gate Academy. Inari also carries a traditional knife given to her by her father on her 10th birthday, made with an antler and birch handle, fitting into a simple leather sheath. She is fluent in English, Finnish, Swedish, Northern Sami, and some Norwegian. Edited by Coryn02

this rp looks really interesting and i'm strongly considering joining! tho i'm not sure if i'll end up having the time to make forms and whatnot ;;

is there a character limit? bc if not then there's a pretty high chance i'm gonna make like 4 ish.

and i'm assuming the age range is 15-18 (high school ages)?

are the pairs set by you (mage), or can i decide to pair my own characters together?

 

Share this post


Link to post

Welcome to the topic, Chrys. Thanks for your interest!

The character limit is three under normal circumstances to prevent people from having two complete pairs. The other questions are detailed in the first post. wink.gif

 

The only way for normal people to even be considered by the academy is to write an admissions exam and wait for an invitation. While oddly selective with the limited amount of people they admit -- less than a hundred each year -- HGA accept students from 13 to 18 years of age from a wide variety of backgrounds and abilities.

 

There are no set partners, but the better two Linked partners know each other, the more stable the link. The relationship doesn't always have to be romantic to gain power; it works equally well through friendship or even sibling bonds.

 

To expand on that, there are no partners that are locked in; you can pair your own characters.

 

~~~

 

Ex. 2 pairings have been slightly updated, just so that everyone is on the same page.

Are the armor transformations exclusively clothing, or do appearances like hair and eye colors get affected too?

They are exclusively clothing, although hair length and style may change.

I updated Matthew's link armor and weaponry to encompass his white knight nature, both in fact and in theory.

 

I also updated Inari's other section to include her mastery of several Scandinavian languages, including her native Sami dialect.

mMmmmMMM new sheet (I'm working on a post while on a road trip)

 

Username: Tehultimatemage

Name: Harold (jianwei) Malson

Age: 15

Gender: Male

Romantic Orientation: Hetero(rororo)

Appearance: Standing at only 5'6, Harold is on the shorter side and looks like a lanky troublemaker with narrow eyes and a foxlike smile. His skin is tan with a cool undertone. His black hair is cut short, swept to the front, and nearly shaved on the sides. Light on his feet, his stance is casual and approachable and his things -- including his uniform -- are neat and categorized. He is never very far from his phone or his notepad, and either item is always found in his hand or his breast pocket.

Personality: Harold's most defining trait is his persistence. He is a truth-seeker and notoriously nosy, and has a finger on the pulse of what is popular at any given time. While he has an active imagination, he doesn't jump to conclusions easily, preferring to gather more data first, although some of his theories are rather obviously wrong... or horribly right. He doesn't really approach people unless he needs something from them as he prefers simply to listen, but he is comfortable in social situations despite spending a lot of his time alone.

History: Harold was the younger brother of three and was a pampered child. What started at first as figuring out secrets to stop his sisters from teasing him under threat of tattling turned into a full-blown obsession with blackmail, and eventually the pursuit of information. At school, he liked knowing everything (at least, in the social aspect) and slowly gained a sense of when to reveal and when to hide specific things he learned to wait for the right moment. While his penchant for blackmail faded around the end of middle school, he had by that time latched onto the romantic idea that there is more to the world than first meets the eye, and that there are people out there who, for whatever reason, are hiding the truth. Armed with a tin foil hat and the internet, Harold made it his mission to cut through the shadows and paranoia to get to the heart of the secrets involving magic, demons, and aliens. That was part of the reason he chose to take the exam -- that, and to be at the center of what is perhaps the greatest event of the 22nd century. The people outside needed to know about Heaven's Gate.

Element: Water

Branch Color: Cyan like a turquoise

Weapon: Shimmering Fangs - A pair of clawed knuckles that shine like dewdrops and are deceptively sharp.

Armor: Horatio the Black Lion - Harold gains clothing similar to Zoro. He has a wide brimmed sombrero corbodes that plunge his eyes into shadow, a white dress shirt with frills on the collar and all the way down the row of buttons. His black trousers are tight and are tucked into knee-high black leather boots with silver buckles and black fur trim. He wears similar elbow-high gloves on his hands, and a fur-trimmed black vest that resembles a mane. He has both a belt and suspenders. His cape is only pinned lightly onto his vest so that it can be shed easily during battle.

Other: Harold is the main author of the school newsletter, the Heaven Herald, and manages a blog open to the public outside of campus. He is a second year and knows a little cantonese and mandarin (although he has a hard time reading chinese)

Username: xvi

Name: Dae-sung Hyong { 홍 대성 }

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Sexual/Romantic Orientation: Demiromantic homosexual

Appearance: Standing at 182 cm (6'0") with traditionally Asian looks, Dae-sung has dark eyes and his black hair shaped into a bowl haircut, with a sideswept fringe and a round face. Tall and friendly, he can be described as a gentle giant--he is easily approachable and carries himself with an easygoing air. Not one to adorn themselves with jewerly, Dae-sung is as bare as he can be. He's not even sure he has ever owned a suit, much less worn one--completely different from his father, who is even seen without. Fond of beanies and with a charismatic smile, Dae-sung has a well-toned body through his hapkido training and large structure, which can seem at times overbearing if he's in an enclosed area. His arms are especially well off, as he focuses intensely in training and his favourite thing to do in a match is throw someone over his shoulder.

However, the way he dresses outside of battle is completely opposite; with his uniform, Dae-sung looks ready to apply for a job interview. Clean-pressed and crisp, his tie is always professionally done and his clothes are without wrinkles. His Branch is embedded into his silver watch that he wears on his right wrist, being left-handed.

Personality: At first glance, Dae-sung seems happy and carefree. Always with a smile etched permanently onto his face and a joke on his tongue, the witty youngster loves to cheer others up and be a shoulder to learn on. Due to this, he's well known throughout with a reputation for just being nice. Seemingly fearless, Dae-sung is a bit of a daredevil and won't back down from any dares directed at his person, making him popular and well-liked for his almost insane acts.

However, deep down lies an insecure child. Dae-sung has forced himself to grow up very quickly, and is harsher on himself than anyone else. Secretly, he blames himself for his sister's demise and will punish himself as so, wanting to repent for what cannot be undone. Due to this and his upbringing, Dae-sung developed a fear of trusting others--he will make friends and do normal things, yes, but never has anyone grown close enough with him to know about his family and background. Instead of one close friend, Dae-sung has twenty people he barely knows other than how they like to party and that they're bad at science. Once someone gets too close, Dae-sung freaks out and shuts them out completely without warning--which leads to a lonely life.

He is also a horrible teamworker--afraid of failing someone or letting them down, Dae-sung would rather act independently rather than in a group and as such has trouble following orders. He's afraid that if anyone trusts him, he will mess up and destroy that delicate bond, and so Dae-sung would rather work alone to avoid his biggest fears from becoming reality.

To himself, he is a horrible mental coach, always pushing himself to the limit and beyond even when it may be self-destructive or unhealthy. He wants to be the very best to avoid failing anyone--anything--ever again, and so will go to extremes to reach his impossibly high standards, of which he almost always falls flat upon.

Deep down, he holds the dream of being able to see his mother again, to sip tea with her like they did so long ago and discuss normal things. Holding his fantasy of such a day close to his heart, Dae-sung has a fondness for fairytales.

History: As a child, he witnessed a tragic, unfortunate event--his baby sister, who their parents had left in his care, crawled out onto the street and was hit by an incoming car while the then-young Dae-sung had been distracted. Since that day, Dae-sung has been in and out of therapy to try and recover from the shocking event. Though his parents have never blamed him for her death, a certain kind of coldness settled between them in the wake of his sister's death, and he never received the loving care that some parents showed their kids as it was ultimately too painful for his parents to move past.

Engulfed in their sorrow, Dae-sung's father moved back to Korea and threw himself into his work headfirst--he worked from day until night, making money for the family and keeping himself busy from grief. Now living with only his mother, the woman threw herself into a headfirst spiral of depression so extreme that Dae-sung was the one who was responsible for making meals and keeping house. Because of this, he is fiercely independent and still loves his mother very much so--on days when she can clear her head, she'll invite Dae-sung to sit with her as the two enjoy some tea and talk about interesting subjects, be it Korean fairytales or food recipes. In an attempt to cheer up his mother, Dae-sung did well in school and would eagerly bring home good grades and fun stories to try and cheer her up. They lived in somewhat peaceful harmony until Dae-sung began high school--the sight of her son growing up was not good on his mother's fragile mentality, and the woman would become even more withdrawn and prone to screaming fits from time to time. Helpless, the young Korean boy reached out to his withdrawn dad and begged for a way to help his mother--as a result, his father drew up a plan: his mother would be going back to Korea for constant care, and Dae-sung would stay behind and make himself a future in hopes of brightening up his family once again. After his mother left, Dae-sung was left on his own, and the boy felt completely alone.

He threw himself into martial arts--his father was surprised upon Dae-sung's initial request, but granted it to him nonetheless--he began training in the art of hapkido, finding it a healthy way to release pent-up anger and stress. Since then, he has now been training for about five years and is well-versed, and his favourite place to be is the dojo.

When he heard of the academy testing, Dae-sung applied with nothing to lose. Admittedly, the thought of fighting against demons makes him nervous, but--if he can do one good thing for the universe, then maybe it'll forgive his wrongdoings . . . ?

Element: Fire

Branch Color: Venetian Red #C80815

Weapon: 손오공 - Sun Wukong { Monkey King } - Sun Wukong takes the appearance of two Vajra, made of brass with elegant designs and shaped to fit the hand. In battle, Dae-sung uses hapkido fighting arts to overpower his enemies by force, and will rush into battle without much thought. Since he has been training since a young age, Dae-sung is efficient on the battlefield.

Armor: Dae-sung's armour reflects his fighting style--loose and free, easy to move around in. His set consists of loose fighting pants and a vest for protection, though Dae-sung is not above shedding this should it get in the way.

Other: He has a habit of cracking anything he can--be it neck, back, or knuckles. He'll do it anytime, anywhere, as soon as the urge gets to him. His muscles also get stiff very easily, so during his spare time he'll be either giving himself a massage or stretching in an attempt to unravel knots.

He prefers to be called Dae-sung--only very close friends can call him Dae.

 

 

Username: xvi

Name: Caspian Mufasa El-Amin

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Romantic Orientation: Panromantic Asexual

Appearance: Caspian, being of Swedish-Arabic descent, has pale skin and curly pastel pink hair to his shoulders, likely tied to the side in a loose ponytail. His eyes are blue, and his face is narrow with high cheekbones and a refined nose. His lips are thin, and his teeth are very white. His eyebrows are shapely, most noticeably done in a manner that makes him look as if he is disappointed in the world and all that is before him, and his eyelashes are long and dark. Caspian is 5'8", with a skinny frame that gives him the appearance of being taller than he really is. Caspian is legally blind, and switches between contacts and glasses as a result of his illness.

Being a dancer, Caspian is very graceful and walks as if he is flowing through the air.

Personality: Caspian is gentle and sweet, a role model for his younger peers. The boy does not let his previous experiences hold him back from anything; he intends to live out his life as he should, and will not let anything get in the way.

Through traveling frequently during his youth, Caspian adapted a wanderlust deep within himself--he loves the world, nature, and everything around it. He dreams of bright blue skies and clear weather, roaming the seas and skies without a doubt in his mind.

The loss of his mother weighs heavily upon his mind, and Caspian values friendship greatly. He is almost afraid to enter a relationship, for he doesn't want to put his partner into the trouble of having to deal with his medical issues, yet he loves to make friends and memories while he still can. He wouldn't classify as overly popular or well knowing, but he is always there to help when needed. Caspian is not very patient, and does not care much for school.

History: Born to a Swedish mother and Arabic father, Caspian traveled around a lot as a child with his mother, a diplomat. As a result, he was homeschooled up until the age of 15. Ever since he was a child, Caspian was raised to uphold traditional values and respect his elders, morals he holds close to his heart even to this day.

Upon the age of 15, Caspian's parents came to a decision that would change his life forever: his mother decided to head back to Sweden to further her career in the government field, while Caspian was to immigrate with his father to start a new life in America.

Entering public school was harsh on the then-15 year old--during his travels, much of his education in the field of sciences and mathematics had been greatly ignored, and he struggled a lot in the curriculum. However, he wasn't given much of a chance to recuperate and catch up on education, for the boy contracted pulmonary sarcoidosis, the same disease that plagued his mother.

He spent most of his teen years in the hospital, living with the fear of knowing that his illness was both terminal and would eventually weaken his body. His parents, surprised by this sudden onslaught, suddenly worried for their only son and sold many of their possessions to gather enough money for his treatment. His mother eventually abandoned her government job in Sweden to move closer to the family home, where they spent a tense few years living with anxiety, yet very closely together as a family.

However, Caspian did not want this to hold him back. The boy had accepted that he would not live as long as his peers--but why waste a life, if one was given an amount of time to represent their stay on earth? He threw himself into his studies, and worked hard.

Upon the age of 17, his mother passed away. The disease had affected her nervous system, leading to moodswings as well as symptoms much like arthritis. To cope with her loss, Caspian began to dance--as a child, he had always loved the sport, but he threw himself into the waltz and ballet with reasonable measures, both as a source of therapy and a way to keep his body healthy for as long as he could.

Element: Air

Branch Color: Ivory white.

Weapon: Dies Irae - Lacrimosa: A pair of traditional Chakram connected by chains, they are wielded through expertise and practise. Caspian wears golden chain gloves, etched with traditional Arabic script and engravings of roses, a delicate weapon that takes some practise to get used to. His fighting style seems a lot as if he is dancing, through spinning his Chakram and pulling them back with ease.

Armor: x

Other: Caspian speaks many languages and understands more, all from his frequent childhood travels.

 

 

Username: xvi

Name: Elliot Alaine-Lavelle Charlebois

Age: 16

Gender: Demiboy - he / him

Sexual/Romantic Orientation: Panromantic pansexual

Appearance: Elliot stands at about 5'4", with wavy white-blond hair and bluish grey eyes fringed by long eyelashes. He has a beauty mark near his left eye, a small mole that only adds to his pale skin and elvish face. For appearance, Elliot dyes his hair quite often; his natural colour is more of a dark brown, taking after his father's hair, rather than his mother's light blonde. Due to equal parts vanity and wanting to please, Elliot has his hair professionally bleached constantly. As he's only been doing this for a short while--before, his parents thought him too young, but upon the age of 15 decided he was old enough to be tailored for the company's image--his hair isn't quite damaged just yet, although its becoming increasingly so at an alarming rate.

Elliot is not physically strong; his raising has completely neglected anything physical, so the male must be careful while lifting anything heavy as he either does not have the strength or might tear a muscle.

Taught to dress the best, Elliot's clothing is always ironed and crisp, ready to go. For his school uniform, he replaced the, in his own words, 'tacky tie' with an elegant Victorian-style cravat with ruffles, his Branch like a necklace located right in the center of his throat.

Personality: Elliot's personality differs depending on who he is talking to. Since he was raised from birth to become a wealthy heir, Elliot is charming and polite when greeting people of higher status, the perfect little prince for others to dote on. He feels most at ease around older, upper-class citizens, and lives by the knowledge that money can help you through anything. Around his people, Elliot is a charming host and perfect heir.

However, around others his age, Elliot's personality completely shifts. He's unable to wrap his head around concepts that others would consider normal, and feels very socially awkward around people that are actually his age and with such diverse personalities. He dons an air of superiority, looks down on all that he talks to, and eventually ends up attempting to give the person money to convince them to go away as that's what he thinks will work best.

Around people he is especially interested in befriending or something more, Elliot will be completely out of his range and attempt to scare the person away. He thanks the stars that his parents are not here to see him now--they would cringe seeing how their suave son is completely of his range, but Elliot is so bewildered that he desperately wants some semblance of home to cling to. Though he thinks himself independent, truth is Elliot's childhood was so controlled in little ways by his parents and grandmother that he never really had the chance to make big decisions by himself, so being suddenly dropped in a school setting is both overwhelming and exciting for the blond. He aspires to do his best, but will willingly admit--with the slightest of shame--that both school and fighting demons are completely new experiences to him and he is rightfully afraid of both. Even so, he won't give up! Elliot's ultimate goal is to make friends--something he's never really had nor considered until now, but after seeing what friends seemed to do together in the movies he decided he wanted that for himself. His approach, however, could use a little work--he really doesn't have much to go on beyond money, which always seemed to help him out elsewhere.

Elliot can also be painfully gullible at times--he will fall for little tricks, and does not have knowledge of the more darker things in life. He has no idea what life is like for the poor, what death really means, nor can he warp his head around the concept of an unhappy family. Raised in a perfect world, Elliot takes many of his blessings for granted.

History: Born to wealthy French parents, Elliot's childhood composed of the best private schools money could buy. As his parents' business was based in England, they moved to Britain when Elliot was a young child of three and never returned to their homeland. From the moment he was born, Elliot was trained for his inheritance--being the only child of two wealthy entrepreneurs meant that he would be in line for a grand future, and his parents did everything to ensure their son would become a good businessman that could uphold their legacy.

Sent to boarding schools, taught multiple languages--although never French, his parents based his education around success and thus allowed him only to dabble in worthwhile business languages, saying that he could leave the others for later times--Elliot was set up for success. As his childhood was controlled by his parents, they also decided on his education. Instead of being taught subjects such as history or English, Elliot was taught maths and business--subjects his parents deemed most useful in order for his future to be ensured. Due to this, he never had the chance to develop hobbies or other talents and thus finds the act of playing an instrument or anything to do with artistic skill beyond fascinating.

Never having really met other children in his childhood, Elliot is more at ease with adults and quite charming, using his good looks to his advantage when charming older citizens. He is particularity close with his grandmother, a retired business tycoon that has nothing else to do but dote on her only grandchild. She spoils Elliot and constantly worries about his wellbeing, always asking him if he's made any new friends or if he needs anything new. However, there is a bit of tension between his parents and his grandmother; his grandmother believes Elliot should be allowed to live a childhood first, spending time with children his age and learning how to live, while his parents argue that he can find 'time to live' when he is older and more responsible, and that flying to Hawaii to lounge on one's private beach is better than playing around in the sandbox with some toddlers. As Elliot was too young to fully comprehend the situation when the fighting began, he never got to form a personal opinion and just goes along with what his parents decides, as he believes that they really do know best.

Since he grew up sheltered in a very closed-off world, Elliot is especially close with his parents--almost too close, in fact. He believes they can do nothing wrong, as they have been telling him that since before he could speak. Although his memories of being taught to walk are more with his grandmother, Elliot is somewhat internally conflicted--once again, he takes the privilege of his bond with his grandmother for granted and seeks to please his parents, who know how to lavish him with gifts at exactly the right time and fill his head with thoughts at another, yet are somewhat distant due to their jobs taking up so much of their time. Through his mother and father's tutoring, Elliot believes that above all, he should trust in his parents to do the right thing, and that ultimately it is important to instill these values in his own children to continue the esteemed Charlebois line.

When his parents heard of the academy testing, they immediately lavished out generous amounts of money to the school for Elliot's acceptance and to be treated well during his stay there. His grandmother originally didn't agree with the thought of sending her precious grandson out to battle demons, but realised that this could be a chance for him to make friends that were his age and learn what a 'commoner's' life was like, so she reluctantly agreed. She demands that Elliot check in with her every weekend to tell her how things are going and if he's okay, and bought him many gifts as a farewell present. Now armed with a brand new wardrobe and a plump wallet, Elliot arrived at the academy.

Element: Water

Branch Color: Midnight Blue

Weapon: Cœur de la Reine { Heart of the Queen } - a sabre modèle An IX, with a white, curving blade and a silver hilt curved like a rapier, with a rose etched into the black leather sheath. Due to Elliot's upbringing, he is at a major disadvantage as he is not skilled in neither speed nor strength.

Armor: x

Other: He likes to pretend that he knows French to honour his heritage; thus, he will call everyone "mon petit fromage", also known as my little cheese.

He has a large allowance and thus thinks very little of large purchases.

Due to his upbringing, he can speak fluent English, Mandarin, and German.

He's almost never had to run in his life and has never played a sport, and would probably drown in the shallow end of the pool. Due to this, Elliot is physically unskilled.

Elliot has an engraved pocketwatch with his family crest that he carries around.

So...I guess Thel and Jess aren't partners for this exercise?
