Nightkill the Emperor wrote:Also, random contest: One of you write up a country app for Malta.

No reason, I'm just curious.

Name: Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order Of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta
Leader: Grand Master Archiebald of Flauntberry-Rocheshire
Flag:

Composed of: The whole island of Malta, an outpost in Rhodes (leased by the Greek Government), a delegation in the Vatican, a guard post in Jerusalem (permitted by the Israeli government)
Language(s): Latin, Maltese, English, other languages spoken by the Order's multinational members and the citizens living in Hospitaller territory.
Description: The Hospitaller Knights have since taken over the functions of the government of Malta, establishing a stratocracy on the island. Loyal to the Roman Catholic Church, the Order generally follows the Church's directives, albeit enjoying a degree of autonomy. With over 50000 members, the Knights Hospitaller have mostly functioned as an anti-supernatural attacks task force, thwarting terrorism at the hands of supernatural beings, aiding the population of supernaturally-attacked zones and providing protection to holy sites and relics.
Characters from here: None, at the moment.
Changes since magic was revealed: When magic was revealed, the Order warily studied it, without fully embracing it. When the Abrahamic war came, a group of Knights who had learned the magic arts proceeded to aid the struggling civilian government of Malta in defending the island from a demonic attack. With the collapse of the latter, the Knights promptly took over its place, and in the aftermath of the war, proceeded to build up their forces and training their members in magic, though still possessing a distrust for anything related to Hell and its denizens.

Only physically-fit and pious Catholic humans can become Knights Hospitallers. Women were recently permitted to have active combat roles, due to a grave lack of male volunteers.

This kicks all the ass.

It also got me thinking: Catholic magic school in Malta.

So it's a school inspired by Elfen High, but instead of a graduate being a jaded, hedonistic, cynical fuck they're raised to become competent Church Militant wizards.

You know, it stands to reason that, with the ubiquity of magic, there would actually probably be an awful lot of newer magic schools nowadays.

Magical Academy App

Name:St. Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows' Institute for Catholic Youth
Principal/Rector: Father Donegal MacCormack
Motto:"Caelitus Mihi Vires"
Location: La Valletta, Malta.
Main Studies: Catholic Religious Education (with emphasis on Exorcism and Mysticism), Magical Studies, Geography (Terrestrial, Hellish and Celestial), Physics, Biology, PE Activities (notably, fencing clubs).
Uniform: Pic.
History: St.Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows was founded a few years after the end of the Abrahamic War, under directives of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, which also manages its funding and selects the rector. Considered one of the best Catholic magic academies and harboring students from all over the world, St.Gabriel's is pretty much the main source of magically-endowed recruits for the Sovereign Order of Malta.

It is headed by Father Donegal MacCormack, a famed and controversial Scottish priest with a past as an Exorcist and "hunter of unclean creatures". Nonethelessly, MacCormack is known as a stern and efficient principal, and tributed with making St.Gabriel one of the best schools of its kind. He apparently wrestled with the Grandmaster of the Hospitaller Knights to obtain the job. Recently, he was criticized for bringing heavy duty weaponry in the schoolgrounds.

When they graduate, the students (which can be of both sexes) of St.Gabriel can either pursue a career in the Catholic Church and the Order of Malta, or remain laymen.

Infamously, the students of St.Gabriel tend to be quite naive or awkward regarding sexual matters.
Notable Alumni: None at the time of writing.
Relationship with Elfen High: After long periods of lobbying and several wrestling matches with bishops and Cardinals, Father MacCormack was permitted by the Church to host exchange programs with Elfen High. Apparently, St.Gabriel's rector was a beer pal of Crowley during his youth, and may have wrestled with the British wizard in atleast a few occasions.

English, I believe. It's a multinational school, afterall. I'm pretty sure that Latin is used to a degree, too.

I wonder how the blind and deaf communities have been affected by magic.

I don't imagine they've gone away, as they're actually very developed communities with their own cultures and I think many blind/deaf people would be unwilling to totally magically fix themselves, at least at this point in time, as this is still somewhat early years and people do tend to resist change.

Figured I'd go ahead and redo William's apllication with the bio I wrote up in the WF crossover.
Name: Sir William Edward Galahad Nilark
Age (Actual): 27
Age (Appears): 20/21
Race: Demigod human
Appearance (Picture or good description): Link.
Powergrid/Powers:
INT: 3
STR: 4
Speed:4
DRB: 9
FS: 8
Magic Levels:
Level 8 Radiant blasts
Level 6 Healing

Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this): He's still very fond of his mother after all these years, so "Yo momma" jokes are a good way to get him to punch you in the face. Doesn't like onions and Vietnamese food, but it's not a major weakness of his.

Personality: It's a bit of a mixed bag. He tries acting friendly and decent towards people, but being in Elfen High often makes that a very difficult and tiring effort, and he resorts to being as abrasive or obnoxious as the person he's dealing with. William also has a tendency to be a gormless twit, though he can be rather competent when the situation calls for it. He has a lot of random knowledge and stories from his travels, which he talks about every so often, and well as a strong dislike of the French, which he talks about often as well.

History: Born on a farm in North Yorkshire in 2003, William grew up living a simple life of taking care of animals, particularly sheep and the sheepdogs, and doing fairly well in school. He was commonly referred to as Edward or Eddie in those days, as he had five uncles and two cousins named William, and even the postman was named William, so Edward was much more useful for identifying him, and his mother and sisters liked the sound of Eddie more than Edward. But things began to change for the boy as he got older. One day he simultaneously discovered his power to hurt and heal when he was attacked by a rabid fox while wandering the family farm one summer night. Edward found himself blasting the beast with glowing white energy from the palm of his hand with a precise, killer instinct he was completely unaware he possessed. Young Eddie Nilark was a gentle, peaceful lad who loved animals, thinking they secretly acted like they did in children's books, talking and going on adventures and having tea together; cheerful, innocent things like that. He tried to pick the wounded fox up to take it back to his house or a vet, when shimmering green light flowed from his palms, restoring the fox back to full vitality and curing its rabies at the same time. The boy reasoned it must haven been some strange dream and went back inside, not telling anyone about what happened.

But William's magical abilities would continue unexpectedly manifesting themselves, and the boy seemed to have little control of when they did, though panic or nervousness seemed to make his body more prone to lash out with its powers. His family grew increasingly frightened about what Eddie might do to them. When a man came knocking at the door to tell them their son qualified for a special school down in Norfolk built especially to teach children like him to control any magical attributes they had the Nilarks gladly took the opportunity to send William off, hoping he would come back cured, or at least able to hide his peculiar talents so as to he able to live as a decent member of ordinary society.

Little Eddie Nilark, a decent if not rather naive teenager with a messy head of thick brown hair and bright, attentive green eyes journeyed to the strange land of Elfen High, and adopted the pseudonym of Edward Craig Bellemew, hoping to hide his identity and not embarrass his family by letting anyone discover there was a magical freak tainting the family tree. The once cheerful, innocent boy grew more and more unhappy and distant from everyone around him. The person he had the most contact with his first year was a sadistic, arrogant German homunculus named Hildegarde. He didn't bond much with the other students he was around, as they seem quite fine with their own groups as they were. The only "lively" thing for the Yorkshireman were the gladiator fights with the participates randomly selected and forced to fight. Edward didn't expect much else to happen to him as his first year at Elfen High came to close.

And then the Norse god Loki marched himself and an army of demons out of the bum of "The Great and Mighty" Lazrian, and began attacking the school. Edward was in his room at the time, sulking about the fact that he hadn't had to courage to volunteer to dive into Hell itself to rescue the kidnapped angel Gabriel. When he heard explosions and screaming in the parts of the school beneath his dormitory he stepped out of his room, though his timing was rather poor. A lone demon was prowling the student dorms, possibly searching to score some easier kills, and spotted Edward immediately. The demon rushed towards the boy, drawing his sword and bringing in down towards the lad's head in a deadly arc.

Edward thought this was the end for him, when his powerful instincts returned. The same precise killing skill that had reared its head on the day the fox tried attacking him had returned, stronger than ever, and far more precise. Before it was a compulsive urge of simply retaliating with magic, but now it was a cold, calculating computer in his mind, turning his entire body into a weapon. The last thing Edward remembered before blacking out stopping the sword with his bare hands, ripping it from the demon's grasp and decapitating the demon.

When Edward came to he was covered in blood, both from his own body and dozens, possibly hundreds of demons. His mind had been unconscious, but his body had been quite active, transformed into an instrument of death by some unknown force in his brain charged with keeping him alive. Edward briefly greeted Thor, who had arrived to take Loki back to Asgard and imprison him there, before he collapsed again, this time from his numerous wounds he had received during the battle.

Fast forward two years and the naïve farm boy from Yorkshire had changed. He had gone through more arguments with his family after the details of his killing rampage during the demon attack came out. His parents had agreed to send their second son away to school to help him control and hide his powers, not become even more dangerous! Edward glumly returned to Elfen High in a self-imposed exile of sorts, thinking his family no longer wanted him around. The boy dropped the use of his pseudonym, no longer caring what impact the nature of his being might have on the Nilark family name. Besides, rural Yorkshire and Elfen High seemed like two completely different planets; it was doubtful much talk of what he did in the massive school would leak out up into his old northern home. After all, he had hardly done anything noteworthy at all his first years of attending Elfen High, and William didn't think he would get into any daft, wacky/world-saving adventures during his last year at the school.

This is where the author pauses for a minute or two to gleefully laugh about all that's going to happen to William.

Over the course of the next year he would accidentally become the president of Elfen High, fight a mad scientist angel in the ruins of Atlantis, call the Egyptian god Set a paedophile (though he doesn't remember that bit), befriend what was certainly one of the most insane man/bears to ever live, and teamed up with Thor, Richard the Janitor, Lord Alastor, and the unfathomable madness that is Dunefiend the Nigga Bear to fight against King Arthur, who was allied with the Fae. Shortly after defeating King Arthur and taking Excalibur he disappeared mysteriously for a short while. He doesn't clearly remember what went on while he vanished, but when he returned to Elfen High there was a redhead clone of him that he may or may not have seen in a hallucination/dream earlier that year. The clone, or Reddy as William initially called him, believed his actual name was Edward Craig Bellemew, and that William was the clone of him or something like that. The Abrahamic War broke out between Hell, Heavensgate and Earth, and William was gravely injured in the fighting of the Siege of Heavensgate. William and Edward fused together through strange magical means (this is another time where Sir Nilark's memory is hazy and unclear as to what actually happened), and in typical teenage stupidity the fused being began calling himself Eldliam instead of something normal like William.

Whatever his name was, the changed Yorkshireman continued fighting in the Abrahamic War, present for the final battle in Dys. His fusion had certainly made him more confident, and he had little qualms about killing more demons. He received knighthood from King Harry for his actions in battle, and with the war concluded he left Elfen High to travel the world, accompanied by Dunefiend for the first few years. After Dunefiend left his company Sir Nilark continued his wandering for the next ten years, before returning back to Elfen High as a favour to his mad friend. He's gotten mixed up in more adventures again and is currently trying to bang a magic Nazi.

The skinny, innocent boy who left Yorkshire twelve years ago is practically unrecognisable now. Grown from 5'6 to 6'3, powerful hardened muscles now adorn his body. His thick mess of dark brown hair changed to become red and silky, and his bright green eyes have been dimmed by the conflict, destruction and loss he's seen. In spite of his celebrated status among the British people as a war hero, a people who otherwise despise most supernatural beings and especially ones from Elfen High for the catastrophic destruction of London, Sir Nilark is still unable to face his family again.

Constaniana wrote:Figured I'd go ahead and redo William's apllication with the bio I wrote up in the WF crossover.
Name: Sir William Edward Galahad Nilark
Age (Actual): 27
Age (Appears): 20/21
Race: Demigod human
Appearance (Picture or good description): Link.
Powergrid/Powers:
INT: 3
STR: 4
Speed:4
DRB: 9
FS: 8
Magic Levels:
Level 8 Radiant blasts
Level 6 Healing

Weaknesses (Optional, but you could get more points if you do this): He's still very fond of his mother after all these years, so "Yo momma" jokes are a good way to get him to punch you in the face. Doesn't like onions and Vietnamese food, but it's not a major weakness of his.

Personality: It's a bit of a mixed bag. He tries acting friendly and decent towards people, but being in Elfen High often makes that a very difficult and tiring effort, and he resorts to being as abrasive or obnoxious as the person he's dealing with. William also has a tendency to be a gormless twit, though he can be rather competent when the situation calls for it. He has a lot of random knowledge and stories from his travels, which he talks about every so often, and well as a strong dislike of the French, which he talks about often as well.

History: Born on a farm in North Yorkshire in 2003, William grew up living a simple life of taking care of animals, particularly sheep and the sheepdogs, and doing fairly well in school. He was commonly referred to as Edward or Eddie in those days, as he had five uncles and two cousins named William, and even the postman was named William, so Edward was much more useful for identifying him, and his mother and sisters liked the sound of Eddie more than Edward. But things began to change for the boy as he got older. One day he simultaneously discovered his power to hurt and heal when he was attacked by a rabid fox while wandering the family farm one summer night. Edward found himself blasting the beast with glowing white energy from the palm of his hand with a precise, killer instinct he was completely unaware he possessed. Young Eddie Nilark was a gentle, peaceful lad who loved animals, thinking they secretly acted like they did in children's books, talking and going on adventures and having tea together; cheerful, innocent things like that. He tried to pick the wounded fox up to take it back to his house or a vet, when shimmering green light flowed from his palms, restoring the fox back to full vitality and curing its rabies at the same time. The boy reasoned it must haven been some strange dream and went back inside, not telling anyone about what happened.

But William's magical abilities would continue unexpectedly manifesting themselves, and the boy seemed to have little control of when they did, though panic or nervousness seemed to make his body more prone to lash out with its powers. His family grew increasingly frightened about what Eddie might do to them. When a man came knocking at the door to tell them their son qualified for a special school down in Norfolk built especially to teach children like him to control any magical attributes they had the Nilarks gladly took the opportunity to send William off, hoping he would come back cured, or at least able to hide his peculiar talents so as to he able to live as a decent member of ordinary society.

Ah, ok. At the Council of Nicaea in 325, Arius was sitting there going on and on about "how the Son had a beginning, not equal to the Father, blah blah etc.". St. Nicholas, believing what he was saying to be abominable heresy, got up, walked across the room, and punched him in the face.

Orthodox people still consider that ultimate badassery.


Since Nick is also a Catholic Saint, one can definitely say that you simply don't mess with the Church.

EDIT: In hindsight, I should have named the school after him.

You know, I've scrapped plans for both Enya and the Israeli character.

Now I'm thinking about making a naive St.Gabriel exchange schoolgirl.
