Central Valley High School [OOC | OPEN]

Postby Imperial Esplanade » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:10 pm

WELCOME TO CENTRAL VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL
Image
<<<LINK TO IC-THREAD>>>


Hello, and welcome to Central Valley High School! Have you wondered what it would be like to participate in a high-school themed RP? There have been a few attempts in the past, with many of them bogged down in a politicized 'factional' system or the like. This is an open-ended sandbox world, with some occasional events to help set things into motion, where you are free to create your own character and have him or her interact with fellow students, meandering through those awkward adolescence years. Will your character become the star player on Central Valley High School's football team, the captain of the cheerleading squad, the nerd who everyone seems to love to pick on, the student council president, the goth boy who keeps to himself, or just an average jane? The possibilities are endless, only limited by your own creativity and your own vision. Create your student now, and go have fun! Be careful though, because some other students might do anything to grow in popularity. You'd hate to be on the receiving end of a horrific prank! There is also homecoming to consider - and who doesn't want to be king or queen?



STUDENT BODY CLIQUES:

Everybody wants to be associated with certain, other people - am I right? Particularly in high-school! Here is a rundown of available options for your character:

- Geeks/Nerds: Every school has them, students who excel in academics - yet also may struggle in the social scene. The future is bright for them.
- Athletes: The jocks are sometimes a clique in-and-of themselves, they're usually the most noticeable on campus - for better or for worse.
- Hipsters: They're not the secluded types like some outsiders are, but they're definitely proud to be "different" from the rest of the student body.
- Drama-Kids: Every watched High-School musical? Yeah, that's these guys. Every single day. At least in their imaginations - and perhaps after school.
- Band-Kids: When you have a group come together, playing musical instruments, for just about every major school event - they tend to form a clique of their own.
- Preppies: Typically the largest of the groups, they're usually what you envision of stereotypical middle-class students. They're usually quite involved too.
- Outsiders: They tend to be either secluded, emo, goth, rebellious, anarchist, or some combination of the five. Heck, maybe even all of them.

*Note: This is primarily intended to help your characters associate and interact with like-minded students. If you have a suggestion for another "clique," post below and I will consider it.

CHARACTER ROSTER

FRESHMAN STUDENTS:
Corrian wrote:Character's Name: Agatha Amalric
Character's Gender: Female
Character's Grade: 9th (Freshman)
Character's Class: Core
Character's Birthday: 2/24/2002 (14)
Character's Personality: Agatha has a mischievous personality. She likes to sneak around and get up to no good, breaking into restricted areas, breaking curfew, and such like that, if applicable. Seems to be a bit rebellious in general and anti-authority, but not majorly so, like some people. Just seems to not be entirely willing to simply submit to them because they're her "superiors", though isn't completely rebellious against them, either. Besides the mischievous part, of course. As her personality goes, she's rather avoidant of people, and tries to shrug people off when they show any remote sign of interest in her. But she seems to be a decent person to be around once you crack through that shell of hers. Seems to be disconnected from her family, which seems to weigh on her more than she admits. Leans towards dark tendencies when it comes to decisions, and seems to get an enjoyment out of it, which she usually questions herself about later in the same day. This is the brunt of her personality, anyway.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
Strengths: 1. Core classes: English, Foreign Language, and the lowest of her "strengths", Math.
Electives: Automobile Repair, Woodworking, and Metalworking, because nothing else on the list really appealed to her.
2. Is good with stealth, from years of experience being a troublemaker in past schools, and at home.
3. Is a fighter, so in tough situations, she would not go down without a very big fight, if it came to it.
4. Likely could make some of the tough decisions, if she needed to, easier then others.
Weaknesses: 1. Science and history
2. Communicating with people. Its not that she has a social anxiety, she just has this habit of pushing people away, and makes herself suffer for it.
3. Seems to have a dark side, which is a weakness for her, as she has the potential to get caught up in questionable acts and enjoy herself more than she probably should be.
4. Has a bad habit of chewing her nails, especially when nervous.
Character's Appearance:
Character's Height: 5'4"
Character's Weight: 136 pounds.
Character's Clique: Outsider

Character's Name: Alexander "Alex" Page
Character's Gender: Male
Character's Grade: Sophomore
Character's Class: AP
Character's Birthday: 7/19/2001
Character's Personality: Alexander is basically your stereotypical nerd: extremely smart, extremely horrible at gym, and extremely interested in science fiction. However, Alex is a new kid, and he's been to many different schools. It's very hard to get his trust, because he's had more than his fair share of bullies, but once you have it, he'll have your back.

Character's Name: Tyrus Battle
Character's Gender: Male
Character's Grade: Sophomore
Character's Class: Core/Honors Mix
Character's Birthday: (08/01/2000)
Character's Personality: As a sophomore, "Ty" is a very mature for his age. With many colleges already scouting him for his talents in basketball, he knows that he can't be like the other kids at school and goof around. Outside of basketball, Ty is a dedicated student who generally finds himself excelling in most classes. He tries to maintain his grades as best he can, usually he does so with flying colors, but there are some times he struggles. Teachers never complain about him, he often even jokes around with the teachers to establish a good relationship. With the limited time between athletics and schoolwork, Tyrus finds some time to hang out with his friends, although it is rare when he finally gets to.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses: Tyrus' height could be imposing on people he hasn't met yet, as he towers over others in the hallways, either making it hard to make friends or making a great conversation starter. He has a weirdly stupid sense of humor, which many others typically don't understand. Ty does best with history and struggles with math, but he generally does pretty well in most of his classes.
Character's Appearance: 4-Star Recruit, Tyrus Battle

SENIOR STUDENTS:
Kaschovia wrote:Character's Name: Devin Grayson ("Dev")

Character's Gender: Male

Character's Grade: 12

Character's Class: Core.

Character's Birthday: (03/09/2000)

Character's Personality: In the halcyon of his younger days (4 - 12yrs), Devin had a distinguished heir of exuberance and high-spirit. A smile would almost always be on his face, if not, his positivity displayed through body language. He was truly happy. At the turn of his teenage years, his father was kidnapped on a road trip in 2012 and starved to death during his capture. Five years later (Jan 2017), he discovered that his mother (of which he had previously not met) had been caught in a house fire somewhere in Wyoming. Devin was an only child and had been living with his father for most of his life, but when his father wasn't available, he'd have to stay with his abusive grandfather Hubert J. Grayson. He'd regularly beat and swear at him, sometimes even hurting him.

Character's Strengths and Weaknesses: Devin is tough-minded and will never give up without a fight, he is incredibly strong and well-built and has learned to control his anger. He is quick, agile and confident. He is particularly strong in Physical Education and Music. However, he is not the most intelligent person in the world and doesn't think things through enough. He is not very strong in Mathematics, Science or History. He tends to hide his true self from people, but when he does make friends and socialize, he makes sure that he doesn't mess it up.

Character's Appearance: Caucasian, short ruffled brown hair, and dark green eyes.

Character's Height: 6ft 2"

Character's Weight: 172lbs

Character's Clique: Outsider + Athlete

Character's Name: Henry Tulane (most people call him by his last name)
Character's Gender: Male
Character's Grade: Senior
Character's Class: AP
Character's Birthday: (12/05/1999)
Character's Personality: Henry is a quirky guy, which has earned him his social status in high school and in many other places. He does not like many of the things that other people do, and he is very vocal about that. Dedication to work, school or otherwise, is important to Henry, but he regards homework with a sort of irreverence that makes him seem aloof and arrogant at times; he will be the last student to hand a test in because he decide to take a nap during it. He regards other human beings in the same way that he regards schoolwork: as oftentimes trivial annoyances that need to be dealt with in the most efficient way possible. However, when Henry discovers an activity or human being he truly enjoys he lets a clear passion shine through that affects everything else he is doing.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
  • Strengths
    • Photography
    • Art/Design (He is enrolled in AP Studio Art 2D Design and AP Studio Art Drawing)
    • Composition and Grammatical Expertise (He took AP English Literature and Composition junior year and scored a 4 on the exam)
    • Henry is taking AP Psychology, and is generally adored by the Social Science teachers at Central Valley because of his natural ability to understand other human beings.
    • Interviewing: Henry has a talent for drawing the information he wants, in the way he wants to hear it, out of people.
    • Skilled with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign (both programs used in the making of a school’s yearbook)
  • Weaknesses
    • Math: While Henry has a great appreciation for mathematical studies, and understand their importance, he is clueless when he comes to the use and application of math.
    • Socially Awkward: When individuals are involved Henry is an expert, but as soon as you add two or three more people to the mix he is lost at how to convey his idea and knowledge. Despite his skill in psychology and sociology he is unable to apply that knowledge to real life, signalling the deeper issue he has with applying much of his practical knowledge.
    • Arrogance: Henry will often skip essential steps in a process because he has too much faith in his own ability to accomplish his goal.
    • Too Focused: Henry loves the Central Valley High School yearbook. He loves the yearbook so much that during the school year it is one of the driving forces behind his existence. If it’s a bad day for the yearbook, it is a bad day for Henry. The boy is too emotionally tied to the publication and its success.
Character's Appearance: Yes, it’s young Liam Neeson
Character's Height: 6’3”
Character's Weight: 180 lbs
Character's Clique: Hipster - Henry is an editor for the school’s yearbook and exemplifies uniqueness in his role

Imperial Esplanade wrote:Character's Name: Sophia Taylor
Character's Gender: Female
Character's Grade: Senior
Character's Class: Honors/AP Mix
Character's Birthday: (04/15/2000)
Character's Personality: Sophia is a cute, quite, intelligent, and sweet girl who prefers to stay out of the drama and machismo that can sometimes dominate the culture of Central Valley High School. Yet, as much as she attempts to stay out of the dirt, people will always try to drag her into it - let it be friends, crushing boys, or envious girls. Sophia's naivety, perhaps, leads her to believe that through her humble example, she could influence some sort of change and make a positive difference in peoples' lives. Sophia's kindness, humbleness, and frequent role of "peacemaker," in contrast to the blatant "gotta prove myself" competitive mindset that many of her fellow students seem to have, gives Sophia at least a little bit of respect from the majority of students - and certainly with faculty. However, because Sophia does not particularly fit into the mold of a stereotypical high schooler, her content nature leaves her at peak-popularity and (perhaps even) certain exclusion from such significant honors like "homecoming queen" as awarded by vote from her fellow students. Sophia is naturally somewhat good at sports, but she prefers to dedicate her time and attention to things such as reading as well as keeping up with studying and homework. Sophia also enjoys to sing and play the piano, and she also has a very lovely singing-voice.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
- Strengths -
*Gets along with just about everyone, even if it's just a generic respect
*Good at most subjects, but particularly in history, science, and literature
*Easy-going, friendly personality - earning her a sort of "sweetheart" status
*Currently single (good for her pursuers)
- Weaknesses -
*Sort of naive and almost too idealistic in her relationships with others
*Can be labeled a "goody-two-shoes"
*Overthinks things sometimes
*Too trusting with others and, sometimes, too honest with her feelings with others
*Struggles a little bit with foreign language and mathematics courses
Character's Appearance: Picture One Picture Two
Character's Height: 5'7
Character's Weight: 125 lbs
Character's Clique: Preppies



FACULTY:
Imperial Esplanade wrote:Character's Name: Paul Smith
Character's Role: Principal
Character's Birthday: (07/23/1963)
Character's Personality: Paul is a former United States Marine, and thus devotes his post-retirement educational career with a focus on ensuring his students are well-disciplined and focused by the time they graduate in order to succeed in both college and professional life. Paul has a tendency to enact strict disciplinary measures on his students, thus earning his nickname: "the bald eagle." However, despite this attitude, Mr. Smith is actually slightly more relaxed than Mr. Anderson and has lots of professional contacts. Many students who have excelled in academics and stayed on Mr. Smith's "good side" found themselves an excellent future reference. While Paul tries to keep a tight grip on students, he's fairly loose when it comes to faculty. Mr. Smith used to be a teacher and an ROTC instructor, but he was given a "promotion" (but, actually, it was to get him out of a classroom for being too totalitarian). Unfortunately for those students who think they can get away with schmoozing, Mr. Smith does not have much of a sense of humor for those sort of things... although he does give some hilarious and badass speeches during pep rallies, which does provide for a glimmer of hope.
Character's Appearance: Mr. Smith

The V O I D wrote:Character's Name: Theodore 'Ted' Anderson, Junior
Character's Role: Former Phys. Ed. Teacher; now the head disciplinarian in terms of being in charge of detention and such.
Character's Birthday: March 3, 1935 (81/82 years old).
Character's Personality: Mr. Anderson is the strictest teacher/assistant principal/disciplinarian at the school. The reason being is that he served in the Vietnam War, as well as serving in the military for many years as an officer. When he was honorably discharged as a veteran military officer, he went into college to study education - especially with regards to physical education. His staunch personality made him hated by many students when he started working at Central Valley High School. He tolerates no pranks, no bullying, and has a "No B.S." attitude plastered onto his face. Anderson eventually was promoted to be one of the assistant principals, especially in charge of disciplinary action. And under his watch, there are no rules to be broken - because breaking a rule is just asking for detention. Cause too much, and Anderson, in the past, has suspended students from going to Junior or Senior Prom.
Character's Appearance: Lieutenant-General Anderson in his glory days; Anderson, as he is today. The first picture sits proudly on his desk, and he'll often speak of the 'glory days' of being an officer and such.
Character's Height: 190 lbs.

You may now begin posting. Any characters created in similar RPs can be used here as well, considering that this is set in it's own universe.

Give it a day or two for the IC-thread to be posted.

Could I create a character that's one of/the only (depends on how large the school is) extortion for the yearbook? They would be a hipster-like outcast, but their position would place them at an interesting intersection for power and intrigue.

For 'class,' just one of the three class-tracks. The reason why I'm asking for that is because an athlete in core classes probably won't be interacting too much with a geek in AP.

True, I imagine most people will choose AP. I bet they'll be one or two "oh my goodness they're actually so smart" athletes.

I'm honestly fine with that, I just don't want there to be those guys who are student president, star quarterback, AP-student, involved in fifty clubs, etc...

The more realistic, the better.

That's more than fair.

How big do you envision the school as far as total attendance? 500 students total? 1,000? More?

I haven't decided yet, it'll depend on how many applicants this thing gets. I'd imagine it'll be a decently-sized school though, perhaps around 1,000.

    • Henry is taking AP Psychology, and is generally adored by the Social Science teachers at Central Valley because of his natural ability to understand other human beings.
    • Interviewing: Henry has a talent for drawing the information he wants, in the way he wants to hear it, out of people.
    • Skilled with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign (both programs used in the making of a school’s yearbook)
  • Weaknesses
    • Math: While Henry has a great appreciation for mathematical studies, and understand their importance, he is clueless when he comes to the use and application of math.
    • Socially Awkward: When individuals are involved Henry is an expert, but as soon as you add two or three more people to the mix he is lost at how to convey his idea and knowledge. Despite his skill in psychology and sociology he is unable to apply that knowledge to real life, signalling the deeper issue he has with applying much of his practical knowledge.
    • Arrogance: Henry will often skip essential steps in a process because he has too much faith in his own ability to accomplish his goal.
    • Too Focused: Henry loves the Central Valley High School yearbook. He loves the yearbook so much that during the school year it is one of the driving forces behind his existence. If it’s a bad day for the yearbook, it is a bad day for Henry. The boy is too emotionally tied to the publication and its success.
Character's Appearance: Yes, it’s young Liam Neeson
Character's Height: 6’3”
Character's Weight: 180 lbs
Character's Clique: Hipster - Henry is an editor for the school’s yearbook and exemplifies uniqueness in his role

Character's Name: Henry Tulane (most people call him by his last name)
Character's Gender: Male
Character's Grade: Senior
Character's Class: AP
Character's Birthday: (12/05/1999)
Character's Personality: Henry is a quirky guy, which has earned him his social status in high school and in many other places. He does not like many of the things that other people do, and he is very vocal about that. Dedication to work, school or otherwise, is important to Henry, but he regards homework with a sort of irreverence that makes him seem aloof and arrogant at times; he will be the last student to hand a test in because he decide to take a nap during it. He regards other human beings in the same way that he regards schoolwork: as oftentimes trivial annoyances that need to be dealt with in the most efficient way possible. However, when Henry discovers an activity or human being he truly enjoys he lets a clear passion shine through that affects everything else he is doing.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
  • Strengths
    • Photography
    • Art/Design (He is enrolled in AP Studio Art 2D Design and AP Studio Art Drawing)

Character's Name: Devin Grayson ("Dev")

Character's Gender: Male

Character's Grade: 12

Character's Class: Core.

Character's Birthday: (03/09/2000)

Character's Personality: In the halcyon of his younger days (4 - 12yrs), Devin had a distinguished heir of exuberance and high-spirit. A smile would almost always be on his face, if not, his positivity displayed through body language. He was truly happy. At the turn of his teenage years, his father was kidnapped on a road trip in 2012 and starved to death during his capture. Five years later (Jan 2017), he discovered that his mother (of which he had previously not met) had been caught in a house fire somewhere in Wyoming. Devin was an only child and had been living with his father for most of his life, but when his father wasn't available, he'd have to stay with his abusive grandfather Hubert J. Grayson. He'd regularly beat and swear at him, sometimes even hurting him.

Character's Strengths and Weaknesses: Devin is tough-minded and will never give up without a fight, he is incredibly strong and well-built and has learned to control his anger. He is quick, agile and confident. He is particularly strong in Physical Education and Music. However, he is not the most intelligent person in the world and doesn't think things through enough. He is not very strong in Mathematics, Science or History. He tends to hide his true self from people, but when he does make friends and socialize, he makes sure that he doesn't mess it up.

Character's Appearance: Caucasian, short ruffled brown hair, and dark green eyes.

Character's Height: 6ft 2"

Character's Weight: 172lbs

Character's Clique: Outsider + Athlete

Is this supposed to be a replacement for Fairwood High School? Because if so, I'm in.

In fact, here's my application:

STUDENT APPLICATION

Character's Name: Alexander "Alex" Page
Character's Gender: Male
Character's Grade: Sophomore
Character's Class: AP
Character's Birthday: 7/19/2001
Character's Personality: Alexander is basically your stereotypical nerd: extremely smart, extremely horrible at gym, and extremely interested in science fiction. However, Alex is a new kid, and he's been to many different schools. It's very hard to get his trust, because he's had more than his fair share of bullies, but once you have it, he'll have your back.

Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
Strengths -
+ All classes (except gym)
+ Very smart
+ Very clever
Weaknesses -
+ Gym
+ Unpopular
+ Untrusting
Character's Appearance:

Character's Height: 6'1"
Character's Weight: 150
Character's Clique: Nerds

1. You should probably switch height and weight.
2. Thank you for using the normal class system! Makes it so less confusing!

Not necessarily replacement, they're two different universes as far as RP is concerned. Your application is accepted.

Also, the page has been edited. Thanks for the head's up!

Hm, I decided to carry my character over from Fairwood as well:

Character's Name: Sophia Taylor
Character's Gender: Female
Character's Grade: Senior
Character's Class: Honors/AP Mix
Character's Birthday: (04/15/2000)
Character's Personality: Sophia is a cute, quite, intelligent, and sweet girl who prefers to stay out of the drama and machismo that can sometimes dominate the culture of Central Valley High School. Yet, as much as she attempts to stay out of the dirt, people will always try to drag her into it - let it be friends, crushing boys, or envious girls. Sophia's naivety, perhaps, leads her to believe that through her humble example, she could influence some sort of change and make a positive difference in peoples' lives. Sophia's kindness, humbleness, and frequent role of "peacemaker," in contrast to the blatant "gotta prove myself" competitive mindset that many of her fellow students seem to have, gives Sophia at least a little bit of respect from the majority of students - and certainly with faculty. However, because Sophia does not particularly fit into the mold of a stereotypical high schooler, her content nature leaves her at peak-popularity and (perhaps even) certain exclusion from such significant honors like "homecoming queen" as awarded by vote from her fellow students. Sophia is naturally somewhat good at sports, but she prefers to dedicate her time and attention to things such as reading as well as keeping up with studying and homework. Sophia also enjoys to sing and play the piano, and she also has a very lovely singing-voice.
Character's Strengths and Weaknesses:
- Strengths -
*Gets along with just about everyone, even if it's just a generic respect
*Good at most subjects, but particularly in history, science, and literature
*Easy-going, friendly personality - earning her a sort of "sweetheart" status
*Currently single (good for her pursuers)
- Weaknesses -
*Sort of naive and almost too idealistic in her relationships with others
*Can be labeled a "goody-two-shoes"
*Overthinks things sometimes
*Too trusting with others and, sometimes, too honest with her feelings with others
*Struggles a little bit with foreign language and mathematics courses
Character's Appearance: Picture One Picture Two
Character's Height: 5'7
Character's Weight: 125 lbs
Character's Clique: Preppies


I'm going to finish up my other characters and have them up tomorrow.

For some reason, I always have ideas for school RP characters, and in fact, I have many on backlog that I've barely used. So even though I'm currently in a school RP, and have been in multiple ones with multiple characters, I'll probably join this with (mostly) characters I haven't used yet to develop them further, since they're just sitting in backlog to have a use, or have been used but not enough to matter yet. I dunno why, but I always like school RP's. I like other types, too, but its a good way to develop more "normal" every day school people, which can be some of the best development to have.
