Iridescent (OOC, crossover between PL and EH, Invite Only)

Postby Nightkill the Emperor » Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:50 pm

"The time has come," said the Walrus, "to talk of many things."
- Lewis Caroll, Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there.

Iridescent - displaying a spectrum of colours that shimmer and change due to interference and scattering as the observer's position changes.


Elfen High.
MEETS
Personification Life

Picture your universe. Now, your universe is just one small part of the whole machine that we call the Omniverse. The Omniverse is incomprehensibly large. Inside it, it has millions upon billions upon trillions of parallel universes running alongside each other. Some die, some are born. It's a natural cycle.

It's also a lie, in some regards. The universes are not at all parallel. They collide and intersect all the time. Often, the results can be a disaster. Often, they can be wonderful. Often, the difference does not exist.


There's no way to right it, there's no way to fight it
And we kicked and screamed but he had us despite it
Like the flame in the darkness, he came out in violence
Battle began- and then began the silence.


Sadly, we need them.

Basically, this is a crossover. Somewhere, Sherlock Holmes shouts "No shit!" Respect the other rp and do your best to represent your own. Be nice people, keep a good quality of rp, keep a good understanding of the English language and grammar and try for an average of four to five lines a post. Occasional slip ups are entirely understandable- a habit is a very bad thing.

If you can't keep this up, I or the other OPs (the three OPs of PL) will remove you.

I will direct and control the plot, which is directly tied into the IC of Elfen High. For PL, I believe this will have no effect on your own canon and continuity.

This roleplay shall take place in the PL city of Benfield. The PL OPs will manage each of the NPCs. EHers, do not take control of these NPCs for any purpose without their permission.

Fade to black for sex. Rape is taboo.

Second, this will be relatively dark for PL standards. Keep that in mind.

Now let's have some fun.


Basically, repost your app from whatever rp you are a part of, and I shall add in a link to that app along with your name and your character's name here in a list format.

Takeo (Condom of Baltimore, Elfen High)

Name: Sarina "Sari-chan"
Age (Actual): Over 700
Age (Appears): 14
Race: Nekomimi
Appearance:
Image

Powergrid:
Strength: 10
Speed: 9
Durability: 9
Intelligence: 1
Fighting Skills: 5

Powers:
Hammerspace (lv2): Sari-chan can store just about anything in the mystical location of "Hammerspace." What it is, no one knows (it's a pocket dimension). Where it is, no one knows (it's hidden within the folds of her clothing). How she accesses it, no one knows (magic). But, the point stands that it can hold just about anything she could ever need or want, acting as the ultimate in item storage.

Weaknesses: Sari-chan is a terrible cook. Sure, that's not really a weakness, but I'm really just saying this more as a warning for those who want to metagame. Seriously, her food is so bad that it's considered a biological weapon by twelve different countries. Also? She loves to cook and gets easily offended when people insult it and/or don't eat it.

Personality: The ever-cheerful one, Sari-chan is very easy to make friends with. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, she will always be happy and amicable towards you, unless you insult her cooking. Then you'd better watch out. However, all of this really just an elaborate ruse, one so complex and detailed that she has even fooled herself into believing it. Though she boasts that she is friends with everyone, Sari-chan rarely ever actually lets anyone into the deepest levels of her mind and soul, locking them both away from the outside world. She's not exactly tortured, though, as she doesn't even realize this. She doesn't seem to understand what true intimacy is and, therefore, can't see that she doesn't have it. In the end, it's not something that's going to be easily solved overnight.

Being somewhat contradictory, Sari-chan is quite flirtatious. However, she never goes beyond flirting. She's kind of a cock-tease like that. Really, she's just kinda naïve about the whole "relationship" thing and is just innocently emulating what she's seen other people do. Also, she doesn't have any real interest in men, despite claiming otherwise, mostly due to that "closet homosexuality" thing. Which she doesn't really know about or understand.

Sari-chan's actions can sometimes be erratic and bizarre, though not intentionally. She doesn't fully understand human interaction, and her emulation of it isn't perfect. So, she can sometimes do or say things that either don't make sense or are potentially dangerous to those around her. However, she's never malicious, and she always tries to do the right thing. She just sometimes doesn't know better.

History: Three years ago, on the outskirts of a rural town in Minnesota, during a meteor shower, an old couple living on a farm had a meteor crash land in their corn field. However, when they went to investigate the crater, instead of a rock, they found a young cat girl curled up in a ball. Unsure of who she was or where she came from, they decided to take her in. Quickly becoming attached to her cheerful and upbeat personality, the two decided to adopt her and raise her as their own, despite her non-human origin.

For the two months until school started, Sarina, or Sari-chan as she likes to be called after discovering anime, lived on and worked on the farm. She couldn't remember anything before waking up in her new parents' house, but she didn't much care. She was simply content to live her life as a regular farm girl, working the fields and tending the animals. Of course, her super-human abilities helped her out in that regard, and she was able to work longer and harder than anyone else, which she did with much enthusiasm. She felt like she needed to pay the old couple back for their kindness and hospitality. However, those two months passed quickly, and when autumn rolled around, Sari-chan's parents decided to send her off to school to meet other kids her age (sort of) and learn more about Earth.

School was not fun. At all. For as much as she tried to maintain a cheerful and friendly attitude towards her classmates, Sari-chan would often times come home crying after being tormented by the other children for being a "supernatural freak." She never struck back and never gave up trying to be friendly, but it was all in vain. Even the teachers abused her and said that this was a human school for humans. Eventually, her parents took her out of that school and tried sending her to another, but it was all the same. For a month, Sari-chan hopped from school to school until there were none left. Finally, with no other options left, they just decided to home school her.

The next couple years were pretty unremarkable. Sari-chan continued living on the farm, isolated from the rest of the world with her parents, learning from old books borrowed from the library. She also became enamored with TV shows from 10-20 years ago, especially anime, watching them whenever she could. She actually discovered her power to utilize Hammerspace one time while imitating a scene from an anime by accidentally pulling out a real hammer.

Since then, she's pulled out everything she had in her Hammerspace and found several items from her life before reaching Earth: her hammer, a crescent moon necklace, a stuffed cat doll, and a puzzle box. The hammer seems be made from some sort of bizarre, pseudo-metallic substance that is remarkably hard but possesses no other obvious features. The amulet is also made of the same substance and seems to hold some sort of importance that she just can't remember. The first time she laid eyes upon the doll, Sari-chan burst into tears, but she didn't know why. There was something in the back of her mind niggling away, but it would always vanish when she tried grasping for it in search of answers. Nevertheless, despite being unable to look at or even think about the doll without tearing up, she feels compelled to keep it at all times. As for the box, that is a mystery to her. She knows that it holds answers that she seeks, but she just can't open it. She's spent countless hours working the mechanisms, but nothing seems to work. She figures that the box likely can't be opened unless she regains her memories about it. In fact, she seems to be the only one who can even use it as it's simply too alien for regular humans to understand.

After a while, Sari-chan's parents discovered a school in England by the name of "Elfen High" where everyone, even the supernatural, is accepted. Eventually, they managed to save up enough money (and convince Sari-chan to give school another chance) to send her there. She doesn't exactly have high hopes, but she still can't help but feel optimistic about it.

Name: Takao Shuichi
Age (Actual): 24
Age (Appears): 26
Race: Human
Appearance (Picture or good description): This.
Powergrid/Powers:
Intelligence: 3
Strength: 6
Durability: 3
Speed: 3
Fighting Skill: 7
Magic:
Healing: 5
Elemental Fighting Magic: 3 - While he isn't helpless with an unenchanted weapon, he makes an effort to blend the elements with his technique. Usually, this means he'll hurl sharp, piecing blades of air, sweeping strikes of fire or something else to that nature. It's not always very effective, but within a rather decent range (let's say 100 meters) he can make an impact on his target, although his effective range is a bit less than 50 meters.

Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this): People. Takao is not a people person, but he is bound by code to always defend those in need. As a result, he's hindered by the weak or those in distress.

Personality: Takao is a reserved individual, only spending enough time with people to get an idea of that they are like. He isn't cold or anything, he just isn't a people person. Regardless of this, he will never try to get far from a group, choosing to stay quiet and observe. He's also compassionate, in that he is more than willing to come to the aid of someone who needs his help. Usually, this means he has to kill something. Oh, and he doesn't particularly enjoy death. In fact, any time he kills, he makes a note to pray, and atone for his sins against the spirit of another being.

History:
Takao was born in 1847 as Bontenmaru to a Samurai and his wife. His father was a drunk and his mother a whore. There, backstory.

At the age of five, Takao began rigorous training to become a Samurai. Being part of the Fujiwara clan, it was expected of him to be a fierce Samurai, and loyal to the emperor at all times, and this meant indoctrination into the cult of personality at a young age. His physical training began at the age of six, once he'd proven himself within the presence of the Emperor that he was loyal to his master. Within two years, he'd broken thirty bones, most of which he was told to ignore, for Samurai never complain. He was taught he was to become the best of the best, and he truly believed that. At 14, Takao was declared a man, and officially given the name Takao, meaning hero, or gentleman, due to his kindhearted and genuinely caring nature towards all who he did not fight. Not one year later, he proved himself worthy of the name when he saved his teacher from certain death at the hands of a few paid assassins from a clan which rivaled his teacher's, but not his own. This, in turn, started a feud between his clan and said clan, which ended with said clan being reduced to a minor peasant family.

At the age of 18, Takao had reached a level of his training which his teacher could rightfully call him a Samurai, and he was bestowed a traditional Kimono. Two years later, he would see this Kimono burned as his teacher's final message to him that he was no longer welcome in the dojo. He'd sworn his allegiance to the Emperor, and his teacher chose the Shogunate over the Emperor. A mere six months later, he'd see his teacher's heart pierced by his sword on the battlefield.

Four years later, Takao was a successful Samurai, an honored member of his clan and a very wealthy noble, one of few who still participated in battle. His success could be attributed to becoming the protector of what his clan called the 'Emperor's Fury', a sword which he would not use until his own was rendered useless. That year, he was transported from the middle of a battlefield to modern day Japan, where he would be found by a team of scientists and taught basic knowledge he would need to operate in society (or at least some) and then sent on a short tour around the world before being placed in Elfen High.

Ubiquitous tag for locating this later tonight.

And sneaking in one character application:
URL TO CHARACTER PICTURE:
CHARACTER CLASSIFICATION: Cursed Immortal; host to Bloodthirster.
CHARACTER POWERS:
  • PERSONAL:Insanity coupled with Gestalt psychic field (this can best be explained by reading through the scene found here); extensive morphing abilities. Can create Hammerspace items such as pockets or bags. His energies are usually spent doing this.
  • STANDARD CULTIST POWERS: Immune to the laws of Physics; able to traverse dimensions "Between"; telepathic ties with fellow cultists, daemons and gods. The daemon prevents telepathic attacks, allows them to look upon Eldritch without going insane, and grants them immunity to magic. They possess certain magical items which also serve to protect them.

CHARACTER FLAWS/WEAKNESSES:
  • Insanity; Gestalt psychic field. These two powers are off the scale but can also be a personal nightmare. "This is my curse, but it's not what you assume. It's what I assume. I believe it, so it is because it's real. Clap your hands, Tinkerbelle, gestalt will get you moving again!" Klaus once killed an entire group of his men when he mistakenly believed there wasn't any oxygen in the room; they suffocated.
  • There are times when his daemon "checks out" or when sanity creeps in. This can put him at a serious disadvantage.
  • Paranoid. Untrusting.
SPECIAL ABILITIES OR SKILLS: Skilled pilot (think 40K space travel, not airplanes), can drive nearly anything as long as he believes he can (See Gestalt field above); artist (clay, wood, other medium); fiddle. Hand-to-hand and ranged weapons expert.

HISTORY: This will take time. He's an old character with an extensive history. Nutshell for now: Klaus was born in Germany in 1910 and endured WWI as well as The German Revolution of 1918. These events shaped his young mind. Hitler's rise to power gave him (and countless other Germans) hope. He joined the military and two weeks later his family was told that he'd died in an accident. Klaus had been recruited by Chaos cultists working within the military's ranks. In an explanation that would take oh so fucking long to go into, he was united with his Greater Daemon and went on to become one of Himmler’s best, a Machiavellian Einsatzgruppe officer ( Standartenführer ). In reality, he worked for his newly embraced god as part of an effort to obstruct and manipulate; his position gave him the authority he needed.

His history first ties in with Minerva Blackwater's at this point. Klaus seemed maniacal in his desire to murder Minerva (a British a Special Operations Executive), and he wastied untold resources in an insane attempt to eradicate her and her "lads". He gave her the monicker unsterblich Miststück (loosely translated: Deathless Bitch) although he secretly admired her tenacity and drive. She was finally captured while freeing elderly "rats" from a rail car, and Klaus was alerted and boarded a train to finally "put a bullet into her head". Tragically, he never had that opportunity. She was brutalized beyond recognition and died in a horse stall at the hands of his own men.

The condition of his worst enemy caused Klaus to psychologically snap. He'd seen many horrors but nothing had left him prepared for what they'd done to Minerva. To this day, he has never told her how she came to be possessed by a Greater Daemon, or how life was restored to her, but she was a cursed thing now beholden to Chaos. She also discovered that Klaus wasn't what people thought, and she joined him in secretly undermining Nazi Germany although she loathed him for what he was.

They have worked together (and occasionally against each other) in Chaos for ages that span far into Mankind's future. Most recently, they were brought to the PL setting in an attempt to provide support for two back-to-back invasions.

Klaus is his god's primary cultist leader. And the rest of the history will come later (when I'm not falling asleep while compiling it.)

NOTES: Klaus’ history and FUBAR coping skills, coupled with his powers, make him either the most noxious thing a player will encounter or the most obnoxious.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.

Name: Caspian Lawrence
Age (Actual): 209
Age (Appears): 17
Race: Human
Appearance: Here is Picture
Powergrid/Powers:
INT: 4
STR: 3
SPD: 4
DUR: 3
FS: 2
Powers:
Lvl. 2 Temporal Bullshit - Not really a power per se (not yet, at least), but he tends to randomly shift throughout time, and not always forward, either. Oh, and he doesn't visibly age anymore.
Weaknesses: Well, he's mostly a pretty normal human. And he's allergic to shellfish.
Personality: Absolutely bonkers. Zany. Insane. Random. He leaps from one thought to the next without much of a logical connection and is fond of parenthetical asides. He talks over peoples' heads whenever humanly possible, and likes to be active. He can't sit still, and he loves to run and jump and fool about and play tricks and wear silly hats. His favorite feeling in the world is also knowing more than anyone else in the room, even if he's not actually the most intelligent. Because that's totally how I've played his personality. Totally.
History: Caspian was born 67 years in Chiswick, to perfectly normal, mundane parents, who just happened to be decently wealthy. He went to a fairly normal (and completely fictional, I hope) boarding school by the name of St. Pettigrew's Academy for Boys, where he had a fairly normal life (for someone in boarding school), and started to grow up. Everything was so perfectly normal that it was absolutely sickening. Totally and utterly normal, not a thing out of place. He got mostly top marks, with a little room for improvement. Took Latin and Ancient Greek, excelled in Phys Ed, smoked pot now and then in the bathroom with some mates. He had a girlfriend, learned to drive, and fooled around with his schoolmates (in both senses of the phrase - it was an all-boys boarding school, after all). He was a footballer, and he also loved cricket.
He also liked to pick on the younger students, harassing them with "pop quizzy-poos" in the hallway that they couldn't possibly know the answer to, and then embarrassing them and making them feel bad about themselves when they couldn't answer correctly. Also, having literally grown up with the show, he loved the fuck out of Doctor Who. His Doctor was Four.
Then, at 17, he was on a plane flight over the Bermuda Triangle when it crashed - the plane, not the Bermuda Triangle. When he woke up, it was 50 years later, on the English seaside. He hadn't aged a day. His parents were dead, he had amnesia, and he was found by a lovely infertile couple named Wallace and Fatima. They nursed him back to health (he was in considerable shock) and when he regained his memory he was sent to Elfen High because reasons.
He is currently 209 years and, though he does not know it, is nearing the end of his life. In his time, he has won medals, fought in wars, hunted strange beasts, and seen distant wonders. He's loved many men and women, fathered children, and seen whole civilizations rise and seen whole empires fall. Through all this, he is still absolutely the same man.

Name: Eric Manischewitz
Age (Actual): 29
Age (Appears): 29
Race: Human
Appearance (Picture or good description): Here is a picture. It is different from the previous ones.
Powergrid/Powers:
INT: 4
STR: 2
SPD: 3
DUR: 3
FS: 3
Powers:
Lvl. 5 Jew Powers - He can sprout eight flaming arms or turn into a spinning dreidel of DOOM! Tends not to use this power because he has to eat kosher in order to use it.
Lvl. 10 Sound Manipulation - Can use music to manipulate his environment and to attack people.
Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this): If he hears the music of Gustav Mahler or Yoko Ono then his sound manipulation ability is weakened. Also, he tends to rely overly much on brass instruments to channel his sound manipulation abilities. Furthermore, music tends to affect him a lot, contributing to mood swings. Also, if he eats non-kosher food, his Jew powers will be neutralized until he next defecates.
Personality: Eric is rather angry at the world a lot of the time. He has a bad temper and he's quick to anger. In spite of that, he's a caring individual with a strong paternal instinct and he loves the finer things in life -- books, music, etc.
History: Eric was born in 2001 in Wilmington, North Carolina, to Harry and Edna. He lived near downtown, and one of his favorite haunts was the Black Cat Shop, down by the river. He had a fairly normal (if normal can apply to something wholly abnormal) time growing up in that city - he played trumpet in the school band, he secretly longed for his male classmates, and he found that he suddenly had awesome powers. He could manipulate sounds to produce brilliant music, or to cause pain (he found that one out by accident while angrily playing his trumpet). He also had the ability to use what can only be called Jew powers (e.g. sprouting eight flaming arms, with one flame on his head [like a menorah] or turning into a giant spinning dreidel of doom).
Anyhow, when he discovered his powers, his parents did some stuff that would ICly make sense that ended up with him going to Elfen High. Then he died and came back and had sex with Damien and left Elfen High and discovered the world isn't very friendly so now, he is Elfen High's music teacher.
Ten years later, he is still the music teacher. He is also married to his husband of 7 years, Parnell.

Name: Alison Carter
Age (Actual): 16
Age (Appears): 18
Race: Bunny-human hybrid
Appearance (Picture or good description): Alison

Face is of an oval shape. Eyes are almond-shaped, with naturally black irises. She likes to put in violet contacts, which give her eyes a dark vibrant violet. Hair, a waterfall of silky brown ending at the middle of her back, often tied back with a simple black band into a low ponytail. She is 5’4”, very slender (due to her not eating very well), prefers to go around in T-shirts and jeans and flats. She wears a necklace on her neck – a thin cord of black on which hangs a pendant – a circle – which is made of silver wire, with a drop of dark blue sapphire in the center. This is her only adornment, given to her by her mother as a present ten years earlier. Skin is pale in color, the result of spending many days indoors, with the occasional beauty mark here and there, scattered on her arms and the back of her neck. She also has cute bunny ears, thanks to genetic experimentation from the bunnies in Elfen High.

Powergrid/Powers:

Normal mode powergrid: Strength – 2, Speed – 3, Durability – 4, Intelligence – 6, Fighting Skills – 4
Bunny mode powergrid: Strength – 4, Speed – 6, Durability – 4, Intelligence – 1, Fighting Skills – 4

Level 3 telekinesis – she can mentally move objects up to size 30kg to move within a radius of about four meters, objects up to size 10kg within a radius of five, and up to 5kg within a radius of six meters. She can use it to push or pull these objects (and by extension lift and whatnot). Pushing simple buttons to start up a standing machine is no problem, doing something immensely complicated such as aiming and shooting a trigger of a gun is out of her range.

Level 4 emotional amplification – she can amplify basic base emotions (i.e. anger, fear, happiness, sadness), but nothing extremely complicated (e.g. love). She can make people “feel” four times as emotional with people of intelligence -1, about 3 times more for 1s, 2 times more for 2s, 1.5 times more for 3s, and nothing 4 and over. Can affect at most three people at a time; with every additional person, the strength of her ability decreases by 25%.

Level 3 regeneration – this is self explanatory.

Level 0 “bunny mode” – due to experimental surgery, Alison looks like a bunny girl. She can augment her speed and her durability by using bunny mode, at the cost of her intelligence, which makes Alison act very, very, very stupid. Actually, that’s probably a bit of an understatement, but whatever. It’s a useful skill, but it takes a bit of effort for Alison to get out of bunny mode and back to her regular old self. She still looks like a bunny though.

Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this):

She fears failure and doesn't take negative criticism too well, and as such, when she senses that she has done something wrong, she internalizes that criticism (whether spoken or unspoken) and blames herself, which affects her abilities to focus, amongst other things.

Due to her being mostly anti-social, she finds it hard to connect to people on a deeper level. And when she’s really frustrated, she often lashes out at people – who may or may not be related to the cause of her frustration.

After her transformation to a bunny-girl, she has a weakness for carrots.

Personality:

Alison, when she’s in a good mood, is friendly, lovable, and logical. When she’s focused on something she enjoys, she will focus on said task intensely until the task is completed. However, this intense focus causes her to lose track of time – something she still struggles to grasp at. She dislikes failure and will do anything to avoid it. She is quite inquisitive, and willing to ask questions, but sometimes doesn't know when to stop asking. She is not a social person by any means, preferring to do things on her own rather than ask for help.

She internalizes much of her emotions, preferring to show herself as indifferent of a person as possible. Her seemly emotional detachment to most events keeps her strong, but it also keeps her from interacting with people on a more meaningful level, as most people have to guess what she’s thinking, lest she becomes testy. No one wants to mess with a testy Alison; testy Alison becomes irrational and reckless to a fault.

She still feels guilty about her mother’s death and her father’s depression, and wants to prevent future unnecessary deaths at all costs, in order to atone for what she feels was a failure on her part.

She sometimes dreams of her mother, a happy woman, from when she was six, and cries at night.

After her transformation as a bunny-girl, Alison has become much more hyperactive, as well as a bit more bubbleheaded in general. Whether this is a good thing or not has yet to be determined.

History:

Ten years ago, she was a happy-go-lucky six-year-old, living with her mother and her father in the US. Her mother was called upon to work in Cairo as an ambassador there, and before she left she gave her daughter a necklace of a simple black cord with a pendant sapphire – her birth stone – within a silver circle. It was intended to be a birthday gift, with the promise that if Alison obeyed her father and did well in school that she would take her daughter to Disneyland when she returned.

Then Cairo happened. Her mother was killed by the demons, and Alison and her father was left behind.

Her father did not take his wife’s death very well, falling into a severe depression and mostly neglecting his daughter. Alison, who didn't understand what was happening to her father, began to believe that everything was her own fault and that she had to find some way to atone for her failure.

Her mother was the closest person she had, and she eventually distanced herself from everyone else, preferring to spend time alone out in the woods near her house studying nature or in the school library reading books and doing her homework, studying in order to get good grades and (in her mind) garner her father’s attention and approval.

She found out about her powers at seven-years-old by accident. She wanted a cookie from the cookie jar, but as the cookie jar was placed out of her reach, she wasn't able to get it. She wished for the cookie jar to come down to her level… and the cookie jar fell from its spot and broke, allowing her to get as many cookies as she wanted. She thought it was just coincidence at first, but later, she dropped her pencil behind the sofa. She reached down in order to get it, but she wasn't able to reach it. She wished that she could grab it, and suddenly the pencil shot up and into her outstretched hand.

She later found out that she had the powers to manipulate emotions when she won a spelling bee at eight-years-old and tried to tell her father about her success. Her father was in one of his depressive moods again, and she wished that he could be happier. This time, she focused on her father, wishing that he could be happier. Two minutes later, he was seen to smile a bit more, and was closer to his normal self. Alison was pleased, and eventually she began to intentionally influence her father’s emotions temporarily put him in a better mood, in order to garner the attention she desired.

Her emotional manipulation wasn't enough to have her father overcome his depression however, and eventually, her father sent her to Elfen High – one less person to care for, and one less thing to worry about.


RP Sample: Fuck that shit, I can write in coherent and proper English, that’s good enough.
Name: Divia Esha Patil
Age (Actual): 18
Age (Appears): 18
Race: Half-demon, half-human
Appearance (Picture or good description): Divia
Powergrid/Powers:

Powergrid: Strength – 4, Speed – 3, Durability – 4, Intelligence – 5, Fighting Skills – 3

Level 5 healing – she can heal herself with a thought, others if she touches them. Small cuts and bruises are gone in three seconds, larger cuts and bruises within five minutes, serious wounds like a gash take about thirty minutes, amputated limbs and other serious things like that take a few hours, depending on how serious it was. She can’t do anything if it’s a comatose person or if it’s serious mental trauma however.

Level 5 monster morphing – she can morph into a monster, albeit with some limitations. For one thing, the monsters have to be of her own creation, not something that she read in a book or saw in a movie or whatever. Second of all, there’s a time limit of five hours – after those five hours, she must change back, lest she become trapped in the morph and lose this power forever.

Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this): Is allergic to bacon (and all pork products).

Personality:

She‘s your typical resident from Heavensgate: all emotionless and freakishly clean and otherwise disconnected from the world. Quite naïve and innocent, feels like an outcast due to her parentage.

History:

Born in Heavensgate to a demon-human couple (don’t ask), Divia grew up amongst the angels. However, she was painfully aware that her father was a demon, and as such she felt even more like an outcast. Especially because demons usually don’t choose to live in Heavensgate, and especially, especially because when demons do live in Heavensgate, they often live in the demon district. Not this family – they chose to live in the angel district.

She so did try to fit in, but she never could, no matter how clean and how emotionless and how devoted she was to Yahweh and the angelic government. Finding out that you could turn into a monster definitely didn’t help either; it scared away her peers and otherwise made her feel even more alienated then before.

She was registered in Elfen High as a student because she never really fit in at any other school.

RP sample: No.

If you guys did tailor it to our powerscale, I would fall before you in wonder and appreciation.

But your own format is perfectly acceptable.
