Quote from: AndyZ on August 10, 2023, 09:37:18 AMGood to know. I don’t plan to read the books anyway until I can hear well enough again for audiobooks.
Quote from: virtualblue on August 10, 2023, 04:06:40 PMFurtively plants flag of interest.
Quote from: AndyZ on August 11, 2023, 08:50:41 AMSorry. I’m keeping an eye on it but don’t have an idea yet. I remember there’s different styles of magic but can’t remember what they are.
Quote from: Mellific on August 11, 2023, 02:34:07 PMI’m interested! I was hoping someone would make this universe into a group game someday! Thoroughly enjoyed the show!
Quote from: AidenWhite on August 11, 2023, 03:30:21 PMI was pointed to this and it looks interesting! I've been looking to get back into group games and this seems like a good one to start with.
Quote from: Kakihara on August 11, 2023, 05:07:29 PMWell it seems we have enough interest to move ahead so I've posted a character sheet up and have some of the NPCs up, will work on some addition info. A link to the world building thread is also above for info on the magical schools and such.
Quote from: Foxy DeVille on August 11, 2023, 05:32:50 PMGroovy! Would you prefer sheets to be PMed to you or posted here?
Quote from: Kuroneko on August 11, 2023, 05:44:31 PMInterested, most likely in an instructor of some kind. *wanders off to ponder and read the info thread*
Quote from: Wolfling72 on August 11, 2023, 07:28:46 PMRuns off to look at the world building threadI--some of my very fave people are here. I need more information.
Quote from: Timeless on August 11, 2023, 08:43:04 PM<-< In that case, can I reserve Ruby Rose as my faceclaim?
Quote from: Timeless on August 11, 2023, 08:43:04 PM>3> I see yooooouuuuu~
Quote from: Wolfling72 on August 11, 2023, 09:02:03 PMDang, lots of information--Also could you please hold Karina Valero for me?? Please and thank you.I tried to sneak in.
Quote from: Kakihara on August 11, 2023, 09:07:04 PMReserved. Yeah, I tried to keep it to a minimum but feel free to ask any questions or such. Some of it is just extraneous for extra though. ;D
Quote from: Foxy DeVille on August 11, 2023, 09:09:24 PMIt's good though, gave me a couple ideas reading it over even though I was already familiar with most of it.And while we're reservin' I'm gonna go ahead and claim Siobhan Atwell.
Quote from: Wolfling72 on August 11, 2023, 09:17:09 PMIt's good info, though.Too bad I can't write a Hedge (That shit is up my alley due to real-life pagan concepts and practices). I know I will want to write a student...beyond that, I am still reading.Are you looking for particular types or are you waiting to see what people come up with first?
Quote from: Kakihara on August 11, 2023, 09:26:09 PMNot especially. It's pretty open though like a mix of those clueless about the magical world and those who come from families of mages would be good. Though I should point out, hedges are a possibility as well. Skewing a bit from the TV show, I do plan on having a local town where a number of hedges have set up shop as there is a project with the university to try and reduce the enmity between the two factions. It's actually inspired by one of the Magicians comic books I read. So there will be hedges involved just not on campus. It may offer second character opportunities for people at least.
Quote from: Kakihara on August 11, 2023, 08:48:04 PMReserved

Quote from: Kakihara on August 12, 2023, 09:18:08 AMNo problem, updated. Looking forward to what you will do with the face claim.
Quote from: Mellific on August 13, 2023, 09:59:24 AMI've been having a heck of a time just settling on a FC for this.But can I please reserve Dianna Agron and Mimi Keene? Thinking of making Dianna a teacher and Mimi a student. But I still need to figure out disciplines and all that. xD
Quote from: Swashbuckler on August 13, 2023, 11:00:22 AMKakihara, looks great and with a great bunch!Please reserve Dave Franco and Asa Butterfield for me. I’ve got some figuring out to do on my own for Disciplines…For Instructors, are they by Discipline, or should I keep vague and say “Staff” for now?
Quote from: Wolfling72 on August 13, 2023, 10:28:51 AMSo-- This is what I came up with:Triple GeeName: Geneva Gayle GriersonGender/Sexuality : Female | Demisexual/Polyamorous Age: 22 | October 25th Birthplace: Baltimore MD Year: 2nd Occupation: Seamstress | Beat Poet | Dance Teacher Magical Discipline: Physical Physical Appearance: Geneva is a sprite of a woman at barely 4'11" and weighing a tiny 100 pounds. Her hair is a wild mess of curls and adds at least three inches to her total height, though she'll deny it if you ask. Unmarked by tattoos, she has a sunburst-shaped scar on both hands from an accident a few years prior. Her clothing choices are only limited by her imagination though she tends toward demure and feminine. She's heard that she should wear heels to give herself some stature, but she refuses as she hates shoes and avoids them whenever possible. Personality Traits: Assertive: Geneva has no problem explaining what she needs, why she needs it, and what she expects from others. She is clear, sets concise boundaries, and refuses to allow people to turn her into a doormat.Creative: Gen sees the world through the lens of an artist. Her ability to problem solve and innovate is only limited by her imagination, and she will quickly arrive at a solution that often makes no sense to others.Empathetic: She is attuned to the emotions of those around her and is a skilled listener and supportive friend.Resilient: Gen maintains a positive outlook, learns from failure, and emerges stronger from difficult situations.Self-Aware: Geneva understands her strengths, weaknesses, and motivations. This means that she is in a constant state of change as those things warp and change. Brief History: Geneva is the product of a mixed marriage and the eldest child. Always a little wilder than her sister, Geneva was in trouble far more often than she should have been and could not figure out why. Her mother encouraged her love of dance and started her in classes VERY young as a way to channel her energy into something productive. As Gen grew older, she discovered poetry and used those words to channel her angst and rage at a world that didn't seem to understand her.By the time she graduated from Baltimore School for the Arts, Geneva was well on her way to being placed in a fairly popular dance troupe and beginning her lifelong obsession with design. It was then, at only age 18, that her life changed. As her mother was taking her to a final audition before placement, their vehicle was hit in a head-on collision, resulting in her mom's death. She doesn't recall the accident, only that she awakened in a hospital with burns on the palms of her hands and only her little sister at her side.Deep in his grief, her father blamed her for his wife's death. So, once Gen was released from the hospital, she left home, packing only the essentials and spending the next two years traveling. Just before her 20th birthday, while investigating a small bookstore in NYC's Greenwich Village, Geneva found herself somehow, elsewhere. She was offered a chance to test for a school of magic called Brakebills. Of course, she was sure they were LYING, but she tried anyway and was accepted.Maybe this is where she belongs?What are your character's goals both short and long-term? Short term? Geneva would like to finally get a handle on the magic she calls her own. Long-term? That's obvious! Combine her love of dance and poetry to become the world's first hip-hop dancer to perform spoken word while dancing! Okay, maybe not obvious. Honestly, she doesn't have long-term goals unless one counts surviving and developing enough that she can make a difference in the world.Likes: Rain storms | Cooking | Full Moons | Dancing | CHOCOLATE | Random hugs | Words |Designing her own ClothesDislikes: SHOES | Rudeness | Depression | Alcohol | Loss of Control | Feeling Alone | SleepingFamily & Friends:Nikita Grierson - baby sister Danica Devereaux-Grierson - Mother (DECEASED)Daniel Grierson - Father Face Claim: Karina Valero On's and Off's: Not really applicable at this time but go here for an overview. Extra: Geneva has an affinity to Fire.
Quote from: Kakihara on August 13, 2023, 11:17:05 AMThe character looks good. Approved. Feel free to post her in the Character sheet thread.

Quote from: Timeless on August 13, 2023, 08:35:23 AMActually, I was thinking to make my character come from a prestigious magical family. Is that something I could do, or not permissible?
Quote from: AidenWhite on August 13, 2023, 12:42:14 PMHey there, it has been a while! Looking forward to getting to write with you again ^^
Quote from: Kakihara on August 13, 2023, 08:32:39 PMOh dang, totally thought I answered this, my bad for trying to multitask responses. lol Yeah that's totally doable. In the Magician's world there are those who the magical world is totally unknown too and then there are families who are completely magical legacies. For instance one of the main TV Show characters was Alice Quinn who's family has a big reputation among the magical community. There area number of others that come up over the seasons as well. So it's totally permissible and makes sense.
Quote from: Mellific on August 14, 2023, 09:41:29 AMHere is what I have for my student... Please let me know if I should edit/alter anything at all! :> Brooke BancroftName: Brooke Bancroft Gender/Sexuality: Female / Heterosexual Age: 21 / November 13, 2001 Birthplace: Hertfordshire, United Kingdom Year: Senior Occupation: Barista outside of Brakebills, somewhere in Upstate New York (she tries to keep it a secret that she has a job) Magical Discipline: Psychic / Dream Manipulation & Precognition Physical Appearance: Brooke has long, shiny brown hair which is typically worn down, either curled, wavy, or straight. She has an olive complexion and caramel colored eyes. Her body shape is curvaceous, despite her only reaching 5'4 in height. Her lashes are naturally long and her lips are naturally plump. She tends to wear makeup that makes her face look dewy and shiny in the best of ways. Her nails are always perfectly manicured and polished. She's constantly sporting the trendy fashions and expensive brands. Personality Traits: Snobbish, Materialistic, Self-confident (outwardly), Insecure (internally), Secretive Brief History: Despite her oftentimes unpleasant exterior, there is a bit more to Brooke than meets the eye. She has always been someone who comes across as being popular, not due to being well liked, but due to her status. She typically has the nicest and most expensive brand name or designer products, and has no issue flaunting them. Yet, it is a delicate balance, because not all things are as they appear. In order to spare her reputation, Brooke may sometimes be secretive or outright lie to others. It's all with the intention of preserving herself and her family name; an issue of pride because she would hate to lose her self-made status. Ever since she was a child, she knew that she was a little different. Whenever she had a strange and particularly vivid dream, she'd tell her parents, who would brush it off when she was a child. They claimed she had a very vivid and active imagination. However, as she aged and the dreams became more peculiar, they could no longer deny that it was very odd. Eventually, she was reached out about Brakebills University and after passing the initial exam with a demonstration of dream manipulation, she realized that her abilities were a gift. Unfortunately, that gift was one she couldn't share with her parents. At least not without getting express permission from the University. After years of having to lie to her parents, she felt that it may have been best to keep her two worlds separated. In fact, there were many things about her life that she tried to compartmentalize because merging her worlds seemed much too complicated. So, what might happen when this year, she is forced to do just that? What are the goals of your character both short and long term. Work? Family? Etc I have a plan to create character development for Brooke. I would like to have her experience being vulnerable and sharing that vulnerability with someone who makes her feel safe. I'd also like it, if possible, to work something out where there's a potential that magic being around is in some way contributing to her father's illness. Should there ever be a time when magic is 'gone,' it would be amazing to have her dad feel like he's suddenly healed, only for magic to 'return,' which causes his illness to also return. It would be wonderful to have her question the worth of magic, when it also has such unthinkable consequences; a conflict that would exist between her and magic itself.Likes: Brand name and designer products, being at the best parties, getting all the attentionDislikes: Hearing others chewing, burping, slurping, and breathing loudly, being kept waiting, not getting her wayFamily & Friends:Father - Bradley Bancroft - 55 - Bedridden with an early diagnoses of Parkinson's Disease. He was first diagnosed at age 50 and rapidly declined.Mother - Penelope Bancroft - 50 - Works as a nurse at an Upstate New York Hospital. Picks up multiple shifts often in order to make ends meet. Works at home with her husband as his personal bedside nurse.Paternal Grandmother - Ester Bancroft - Deceased - She had been well cared for in her last years of life, but the death of her grandmother had affected Brooke a lot in her first year of University. She passed away the summer before Brooke started at University, and it nearly kept Brooke from attending at all.Extended family - All other family still lives in the UK, or are not considered to be as close-knit as the family mentioned. Face Claim: Mimi Keene On's and Off's:Ons - Attention, Casual sex, Validation, Cheap cologne, Risky sex, Public sex, Rough sex, Multiple orgasms, Oral sex, Quickies, Clothed sex, Passionate sexOffs - Threesomes or Moresomes, Bondage, Non-con & Dub-con, Infantilism, Humiliation, Spit, Abuse, Permanent markings Extra: Brooke has an English accent that sounds like this.
Quote from: Kakihara on August 14, 2023, 12:16:42 PMCharacter looks great. Approved. Feel free to put her sheet up.Also you mentioned her being a Barista outside of the school, I do plan on having a neighboring town that has connections to the school called Briarwood where there are a number of Hedge Witches so may be a place for her. It's kind of the place where most student and faculty go if they aren't going to NYC on the weekends. I mentioned it briefly in the current timeline write up but really do need to do a write up of the town as well here.
Quote from: Swashbuckler on August 14, 2023, 12:32:49 PMa wild student appears! Albie NewdegateName: Albie Newdegate Gender/Sexuality : Male / Heterosexual Age: 22, March 21st Birthplace: Bradford-on-Avon, UK Year: 4th Year Occupation: Dishwasher - Pub in Briarwood Magical Discipline: Illusions Physical Appearance: Albie is 6’2” tall, and weighs around 180lbs, which gives him a lean lanky look just this side of skinny. Albie dresses very frugally considering his upbringing, and finds shopping for new clothes to be ridiculous when there are perfectly good finds at thrift stores everywhere. Albie is usually clean shaven, but at times forgets and gets a little wispy scruff. Personality Traits: Clever - Albie does well with many subjects, when he puts his mind to it. He almost could have been a Knowledge discipline, but he is often distracted as well.Awkward - Albie struggles in positive social situations like parties and dating. He likes the thought of such things, and definitely tries, but usually mucks it up.Meek - Albie will attempt to avoid confrontation at all costs. He is just not cut out to be a hero, or a fighter. While he gets as mad as anyone else, he would prefer to channel that into turning the other cheek and leaving the situation.Principled - Albie believes your word in the most important thing you have. He would never betray another’s confidence or share a secret. If he makes a commitment, he’d kill himself trying rather than fail to meet up to it.Frugal - Having always been floating just above poverty, Albie can stretch a little money a long way. Brief History:Albie grew up as the only child of his parents George and Kaite Newdegate. A rather happy home, with his father a lorry driver and his mother an estate agent, Albie was not poor but decidedly middle class. Still, he had plenty of friends around the neighborhood, and if a few things had gone strange around him, it was all put down to coincidence.When Albie was six, his father was in a terrible accident, and while he held on for a few days, he eventually passed away in hospital. Albie does not remember much of this time. He remembers spending time in the hospital, and his mother and aunts sending away to visit the gift shop, with tears in their eyes, while they talked to doctors and made hard decisions.With his Dad gone, things got much harder on the Newdegate’s, with Albie’s mother working herself to the bone just to keep them clothed and fed, and while he might have turned to a bad group of friends, especially considering where they lived, Albie did all he could to be good, helping around the house and just trying to be self sufficient and as little a burden as possible.After a year or two, things in the UK became too tough, and Albie and his mother came to the US to live with her cousin. Albie adjusted somewhat well, finishing American high school without trouble and taking his first job waiting tables. It was here that Albie’s “troubles” began. It would seem sometimes that when he stood too still, or faded back, that people just wouldn’t see him. Then when he’d move, he’d startle people.Thinking he was just one of those people who were ‘invisible’ in life, it was not until a member of Brakebills University found him and explained that this was latent Illusion Magic that he really understood. Leaping into the University with both feet, Albie finds it all still fascinating after four years, and will gladly look into any type of magical display he can.What are the goals of your character both short and long term. Work? Family? Etc Albie would love to learn true Invisibility, and Mirror Magic. He feels there is a secret world there just waiting to be tapped.He also secretly harbors a desire to learn to fly (assisted likely) but has never told anyone thatLikes: Reading, Fireplaces, Hot Chocolate, thunderstorms, petsDislikes: Confrontation, Public speaking, spiders, peer pressure, exerciseFamily & Friends:George Newdegate - Father - deceasedKatie Newdegate - MotherAlicia Doyle - Aunt (Mother lives with her)Friends: to be added later Face Claim: Asa Butterfield On's and Off's: Here
Quote from: Mellific on August 14, 2023, 12:42:32 PMThank you! I'll get her posted up! As far as the Barista thing goes, I think that because Brooke wants to keep her job a secret (since rich people should not need jobs, in her opinion), she would avoid the places that are heavily populated by other Magicians, on the chance someone might recognize her there, lol. Of course, if it's easier, I can just have her work in Briarwood and hide when someone comes into the coffee place she works at!
Quote from: Mellific on August 14, 2023, 02:00:56 PMHere is what I came up with for a Professor. Please let me know if any of this needs to be edited/altered! :>Sloan AshleyName: Sloan Ashley Gender/Sexuality : Female / Heterosexual Age: 33 / August 22nd, 1990 Birthplace: Saratoga Falls, New York Year: Graduated Alumni Occupation: Illusion Professor Magical Discipline: Illusion / Mirror Magic & Vertigo Induction Physical Appearance: Sloan's eyes are haze, shifting from a vibrant shade of almond brown, to a forest green, particularly in the sunlight. She stands at 5'6, with a pear shaped body and feminine curves. Her complexion is not unlike that of a porcelain doll, and her skin tone is much the same. She has subtle dimples that show up when she smiles and her high cheekbones and pointed nose are dusted with freckles, often covered by makeup. Her hair is bleached blonde, with natural brown roots visible most of the time. Most often her hair is kept long enough to be curtained around her shoulders. Personality Traits: Charismatic | Dramatic | Impulsive | Outgoing | Competitive Brief History: Sloan and Shawn grew up together, but spent most of their younger years being raised by their live-in nanny. Their parents were too busy to be parents on most days which created a strained relationship for them all. They were more than happy to leave cash and write checks when their kids needed something though, as if money might be the answer to all of an adolescent's problems. Though their home life was unfortunate, it did bring the sibling closer together. When the day came that they both stumbled into Brakebills University, they were so hopeful for the future and what it could bring, with magic included. Unfortunately, Shawn failed the exam and his memory was wiped clean about Brakebills. Sloan was given permission to tell him the truth after requesting it, but Shawn only grew more depressed, leaving Sloan to wonder if it would have been better to leave him in the dark. She learned about her abilities and how to harness them on campus. Before acceptance into Brakebills, she had no inkling of any magic ability whatsoever. A skeptic of sorts, she was always able to convince herself that whatever she thought she saw in the mirror wasn't really there, or that an image she thought she saw was no more than a mere hallucination or mirage. Not only that, but even without practice, she noticed a pattern of others saying they felt 'dizzy' when they were in her presence. Thankful for her competitive years at Brakebills, she couldn't fathom returning to regular life and immediately requested an internship with the school. Once a position as a professor opened, she jumped on it and now teaches the very magical skill she possesses. There is always more to learn and she finds that even as she teaches her students, she is still constantly challenged and ever learning. This is her third year as a professor, after choosing to take a few post-graduate courses on education. What are the goals of your character both short and long term. Work? Family? Etc Sloan may be a mostly developed character, but there is a lot of room for growth in her relationships. There may be some work for her to do in terms of getting onto speaking terms with her parents, who she essentially cut off ever since she became an adult and went to therapy, where she learned that what happened to her during childhood was not okay. She has an issue with abandonment, which makes sense given her past, and is something that she will struggle to overcome during her arc. She also has an unhealthy relationship with being a perfectionist. As a child, she was convinced that if she did well enough in some area of her life, her parents would pay more attention to her. This has led to a complicated relationship with a multitude of things in her life (prioritization, time management, making mistakes). Finding a way to get her to overcome or at least face some of these issues head-on would be really great. Likes: Winning, Creating illusions, Surprising others, Female empowerment, SingingDislikes: Being forgotten, Being ignored, Rejection, Failing, LosingFamily & Friends:Parents - Everleigh and Weylin Ashley are well known among the elite. They are wealthy beyond measure due to their individual success. Weylin is a renowned film director who has adapted countless beloved book series into well known films, and Everleigh is the actress he most often chooses to play the leading lady. They first met on a set when she auditioned for a minor role. He was so enamored that he convinced her and everyone on set that she was the next biggest star. Thanks to his movie magic, he was right. The two have been so busy with movies, premieres, fundraising, and other socialite events, that they barely had time for their children. Little brother - Shawn Ashley tried to make it at Brakebills, but he failed the initial examination and fell into a downward spiral of depression afterward. He still lives in New York, his dreams of becoming a Magician squashed. He currently spends most of his time at the writing table for his father's scripts. Face Claim: Dianna Agron On's and Off's: Vanilla sex; hasn't experienced much beyond that Extra: Sloan does not sing professionally, but only sings to herself and when she is alone to keep it from getting too quiet. Her singing voice sounds like this.

Quote from: RainyHigh on August 14, 2023, 08:35:18 PM*plants and interest flag* Mellific explained to me that my lack of Magician knowledge about the books and show (I've only seen season one) shouldn't be a huge issue as long as I read up on the lore in the World Building thread, so here I am~*waves at Mel*Question: I'm working on a character whose disciple is healing. As a fourth year, would they be working in the clinic at Brakebills already? Or is that all students with healing magic study from year one?
Quote from: Kakihara on August 14, 2023, 08:54:17 PMWelcome. Yeah, knowing the series and books isn't necessary at all. The lore is there that might be needed along with some vids even just because the hand movement is sweet. lol Well, the Infirmary is also the Healing Discipline's House so early year students are required to put in time at the clinic, though they can volunteer, other than for classes though all are considered on call for anything major, since they are living right there. But later year students can earn extra credit towards graduation as like a lab work.

Quote from: RainyHigh on August 14, 2023, 09:02:33 PMThanks for the quick answer. OK, I think I understand this a bit better now. So while living there they do on-the-job training at the Infirmary from the first year and on. But they can volunteer/work extra hours for extra credit? Yet they also still take classes with the rest of the students at Brakebills. If I'm way off base on this, my apologies.
Quote from: Wolfling72 on August 14, 2023, 09:08:18 PMOoooh, Rainy's here.
Quote from: Mellific on August 14, 2023, 09:09:03 PMYayyy, Rainy! I'm always here for help and so is the Wiki fan page, lol. But Kakihara is doing an amazing job with the lore, so I'm not worried about you! So glad to have you joining! <3
Quote from: Kakihara on August 14, 2023, 09:16:35 PMNo you are pretty much on point other than on the job training. They really don't go into it on the show, like every Discipline has a house and the Healing Discipline's house includes the infirmary but I assume it's more like attached to it. So the first years can volunteer to be like helpers, since most won't have a lot of experience, but it's more if they wish. So if players want to rp with that it's ok.And yes, no matter the discipline they are designated with, everyone goes through the same classes and learn a rounded magical capability, including now combat magic. Discipline is more for sorting into their house so students are surrounded by alike people to improve themselves, since most learn outside of classes as well.

Being the only daughter and the youngest of her family, she was brought up knowing she had to be the very best among the best within their society. Her father was very well known among his peers, let alone that their family was old money where they basically inherited their wealth from one generation to another — but it didn't stop her family from breaking into investment firms and property management.Everything seemed perfect at first — that was until her mother suddenly fell ill and was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, chronic myeloid leukaemia, when Audrey was only just a teen. From then on, her life drastically changed — even more so when her brother had enough of his parents, especially when their father disapproved of him wanting to marry his long-term girlfriend whom their parents deemed unfit. Instead of confirming their parents' ideals, Francis left the household and the family to pursue his happiness while leaving his only little sister to fend for herself.Since then, her father had solely focused on her and making sure she would be moulded into the perfect heiress to take over the family business and inherit the family fortune. Her mother was given the best medical care and facility, though her body had become frail, and she would tire quickly. Despite that, Audrey remained ever close to her and made sure to spend as much time as she could with her, especially when the whole family had known how her father couldn't help himself and slept with other women behind his dying wife's back. Even then, Audrey remained ever-poised and ever determined to make her parents proud, while also to ensure she would not be the same failure like her brother.What are the goals of your character both short and long term.

Also since we had enough I've submitted for a big group board which should help organizing better and easier. And will also post up a calendar and all once that is done.

Quote from: AidenWhite on August 15, 2023, 11:28:44 AMIt took a while, but here he is. Hopefully, everything is alright!Alejandro MuñozName: Alejandro Muñoz Gender/Sexuality: Male/Heterosexual Age: 24, February 14th Birthplace: Madrid, Spain Year: Second Occupation: Waiter Magical Discipline: Physical - Fire Manipulation Physical Appearance: 5'10", 157 lbs, dark brown hair, light brown eyes Personality Traits: Flirty | Passionate | Loud | Charismatic | Prideful | Possessive | Materialistic | Confrontational Brief History:Born to a lower class family who was just getting by, Alejandro always had his eyes to the moon, wishing for something more than what he had. He didn't like living the way he did and he certainly knew that living the rest of his live in what he considered complete squalor was out of the question; he needed everything. So in order to earn money, he did plenty of odd jobs here and there until he was discovered by a talent scout who asked him to join his cabaret club. Alejandro was promised an extravagant wage and he accepted it on the spot. It was here that he used his natural charisma and talent for conversation, as well as his good looks, to entertain women. Everything was going well until one night, the boyfriend of one of the women he was entertaining crashed into the club. The man was a notorious gangster and he didn't appreciate that his woman was going every night to see Alejandro. He had caught some rather spicy messages between the two and he went to deal with Alejandro himself. So a chase ensued and Alejandro ran for hours through the streets of Madrid. In the end, he was cornered and they started to beat him. Out of desperation, he felt something begin to burn inside of him and right before the boyfriend could deal the finishing blow with a crowbar he'd brought, Alejandro held his hand out and set him on fire. Amidst the panic and confusion, Alejandro managed to escape and return to his flat. He wasn't sure what happened.The day after, a letter arrived at his front door. Inside it was a message written explaining that he was seen the night before and explained that the phenomenon that Alejandro experienced was indeed magic. Alejandro couldn't believe it at first, but continuing to read the message. It explained that there was a school that accepted people who could use magic from all over and they were taught how to hone their abilities. It was hard to believe but Alejandro knew that his life in Madrid was over after what he did, so he gathered all his belongings that could fit in a small suitcase and took the first plane out to The City That Never Sleeps.What are the goals of your character both short and long term.

Magical Discipline: Healing Magic Physical Appearance: Hazel stands slightly around average height at 5 ft. 7 in. She has an athletic but curvy build, and her hair is a dark brown--nearly black. Her eyes are also brown. She often likes to wear stylish and trendy clothes. Personality Traits: Adaptable | Responsible | Detail-Oriented | Impatient | Callous | Overprotective | Collaborativepersonality expandedAdaptable: Hazel can quickly adjust her techniques and approaches to suit different people's needs in a dynamic magical environment.Responsible: Haze takes her healing role seriously and is dedicated to fulfilling their responsibilities at the school.Detail-Oriented: Precision is crucial in magic, and Hazel pays close attention to details to ensure the best results.Impatient: In her desire to see quick results, Hazel often becomes frustrated when her magic doesn't show immediate improvement or results.Callous/Lack of Empathy: Hazel sometimes struggles to understand or connect with other people's emotions.Overprotective: On the flip side, Hazel sometimes becomes overly protective of other people's lives and safety, resulting in boundary issues and potential conflicts.Collaborative: Hazel works well in a team, cooperating with other magical practitioners and sharing her knowledge to improve outcomes. Brief History:Hazel Moore grew up in a family of skilled healers where magic was an integral part of her life from a young age. Growing up, Haze was surrounded by stories of her ancestors' accomplishments, which set high expectations for her abilities. Hazel was expected to carry on the family legacy, leading her to develop a strong sense of responsibility from a young age. Her siblings Elena, Lucas, and Olvia also contributed to her competitive nature. Elena, the eldest sibling, is great at being nurturing and wise--sometimes offering guidance to Hazel. Lucas, the second sibling, is adventurous and outgoing but strives to branch out away from healing magic, focusing on physical magic. And Olivia, the third sibling, is knowledgeable in exorcisms and potions and has a more competitive attitude than Hazel. Olivia isn't the type of sister to share secrets or give guidance--often telling Hazel to find answers on her own. Haze is the youngest sibling. In her free time, Hazel sings to help with her emotional expression since it's hard for her to convey her emotions otherwise. Singing allows Hazel to process her feelings and connect with her own emotions. In her early years at Brakebills, Hazel excelled in her studies due to her detail-oriented nature. However, this heightened her competitive streak and impatience with other students (and sometimes staff) who challenged her by being better than her--or those who couldn't keep up. Yet it wasn't always sunshine and rainbows, as Haze had a setback during her second year at Brakebills, a magical mishap that resulted in another student nearly losing their leg. Now she is often cautious, overprotective, and sometimes controlling regarding others' safety. As she continued her studies at Brakebills, Hazel witnessed how true collaboration and empathy could lead to more effective healing. Although she is getting better at sharing knowledge, she still struggles to connect with others on an emotional level--often looking at the injury first before understanding the person. Character Goals:🕊 To be one of the best healers in her areas of study--better than her sister Olivia.🕊 To become more empathetic with others.🕊 Developing new magical healing techniques that push the boundaries in her field.Likes: Singing | Magical Research | Herbal Teas | Junk Food (guilty pleasure) | Moderate weather | Nature Walks | Yoga | Cooking (though she's not very good at it)Dislikes: Unnecessary Drama | Spicy Foods | Freezing Temps. | Extreme Heat | Lack of Progress | Manipulative PeopleFamily & Friends:⛥ William Moore: father - 63 years old.⛥ Eleanor Moore: mother - 56 years old.

Quote from: Kuroneko on August 15, 2023, 10:03:28 PMOne nature magic professorName: Hideaki Koizumi (Japanese convention, last name first). Answers to both Ko, and Aki. Gender/Sexuality : Male / Heterosexual Age: 41, October. Birthplace: Kyoto, Japan. Year: N/A Occupation: Professor of Natural Magic Magical Discipline: Natural magic, weather manipulation. Physical Appearance: At 6’ 1”, Koizumi is tall for a Japanese man. His dark black hair is chin length, layered, and his eyes are a deep, warm brown. He has a calm presence and demeanor that contradicts the power of the forces he can manipulate. Aki has a full body horimono in the kame no ko style with a munewari of empty skin down the center of his chest. The main motifs on his back are Fujin and Raijin, the gods of wind and thunder. Personality Traits: Grounded | Confident | Trustworthy | Mysterious |Honorable | Spiritual | Patient Brief History:Koizumi comes from a family with a long line of magicians, most of whom were gifted in natural magic. In that regard, he’s something of a legacy. His father was a renowned master of herbal magics, and his mother was equally know for her ability in plant magic. They thought at first that he would follow in their footsteps, but the kami has other plans, instead gifting Koizumi with the ability to manipulate weather, like his great grandfather. Born just outside of Kyoto, Koizumi was raised in a magical family that began his education in the arts early. He took them seriously, and worked hard to learn all he could and, once they began to manifest, to master his abilities. His magical education went had in hand with a grounding in Shinto and Buddhism, and the martial arts, assisting him to become grounded, focused, patient and quite comfortable with his talents. With so much natural energy at his fingertips, a solid moral foundation and understanding of his place in the world is a necessity, a thing he tries to instill in his students. When it became known that Brakebills was in need of a natural magic professor, Koizumi’s father recommended him for the position, knowing of his son’s desire to experience the weather of various locations. He agreed and left Japan, promising to return, and has since been using his time as the school to learn as much as he can about the local variations in weather. He also has a keen interest in the hedge witches, and what knowledge they might possess about the spirits of the land he now finds himself in. What are the goals of your character both short and long term. Work? Family? Etc. Koizumi believes that in order to call the forces of the weather, he must get to know the kami of a specific region, and so wants to travel to as many places as he can over the course of his life. Eventually, he plans to return home to Japan, to take up the mantle as head of his family, settling where the kami call him. Likes: Storms, the ocean, tea, nighttime, rain, swimming, nature, cats, animals, cooking, meditation, T’ai Chi, art of all kinds, books and reading.Dislikes: Discrimination/racism, fast food, social media, dishonesty, cheating, American politics, people that want things instantly.

Quote from: Timeless on August 16, 2023, 07:16:13 AMAaannnddd, here's my professor.>3> I couldn't resist...Qin Heng ShirongName: Qin Heng Shirong Gender | Sexuality: Male | Demisexual Age: 35 Years Old | 23rd March Birthplace: Hong Kong Year: N/A Occupation: Professor Magical Discipline: Knowledge - Meta-Composition and Circumstantial Prognostication Physical Appearance: 6'1" | 165 lbs (75 KG) | Black Hair | Dark Brown Eyes Personality Traits: Intelligent | Observant | Perfectionist | Cynical | Reserved | Stoic | BluntRight off the bat, people who first met with Shirong would think he's an unlikable, sarcastic bastard with a flair of self-importance. And truly, none can really fault them for thinking like so, especially when the Asian man tends to keep to himself and he likes his solitude. Sarcasm comes to him as natural as he takes his breath of air and it doesn't help that sarcasm is his joy. He can be extremely blunt with his words without giving a second thought, mainly when he wants to give someone a piece of his mind. Sometimes people would even think on how he can be such an emotionless bastard, especially when he could be quite unsympathetic at times.Nonetheless, if someone gets to know the man longer and even tolerate his sarcasm and stoicness, the Chinese man can prove to be a very interesting company. Perhaps it trailed from his Asian roots, but Shirong had always been a very intelligent young man, proven in his speech and mannerisms. He was that one person who would prioritize his studies, first of all, out of everything, and even until now, he is constantly researching and learning to improve on his skills and widen his knowledge. Also, Shirong is loyal to the people he calls his close friends and wouldn't mind offering assistance if they were in trouble. Other than that, he does have a conscience (as much as it surprised people) in that he couldn't refuse on helping someone who looked like they were in a dire situation. Other than that, Shirong tends to keep some things to himself despite having a few close friends. It's not because he doesn't trust them, but there are times when he just felt he could endure by himself and with his own strength — even if that may not be the case. Brief History:Shirong was originally born in Hong Kong as the only child by his Malaysian Chinese mother and Taiwanese father. His early childhood was filled with his family having to move to different countries because of his father's job; moving from Hong Kong to Indonesia, then Singapore and even to Malaysia. Because of his family moving so very often, Shirong never really made a place for himself during his early childhood and he already noticed on how his family was breaking apart from the pressure. Eventually, his parents filed a divorce when he turned ten years old and his parents shared custody with him.After the divorce was finalized, his mother made a huge decision to move to USA as she wanted to pursue her PhD in business. Apparently, he had relatives in the States, so it was rather convenient for her mother and himself. They moved into New Orleans and it was the first for Shirong for him to ever feel settled in one location. Truthfully, he had found a lot of difficulties to fit in especially during his middle school years. It became a little worse when people started to bully him because of his race along with his appearance and how he tends to keep to himself. When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, Shirong was actually visiting his father back in Hong Kong when it happened. He quickly returned with his father accompanying him, only to find that his mother was one of the missing people within the tragic natural disaster. It seemed that her mother was one of the volunteers who tried to do her part, but she was swept away by the current. It tore Shirong apart.His relatives' home was also destroyed from the hurricane and it took a good chunk of the loans to rebuild the house back again. Fortunately, his father was generous enough to donate some money for the repairing cost as well. From then on, Shirong was mostly trudging along and unsure of what to do — that was until he received an odd invitation to attend a university he never heard of. To realize he had magic though had basically opened his eyes and his world, only for Shirong to invest his studies in his magical field where he was determined to fine-tune and harness his magical skills. From then on, he decided to stay and remain as a professor, keen to bring forth the new wave of students and also instill the hunger for knowledge in them just like he had found within the university.What are the goals of your character both short and long term. Work? Family? EtcShort Term: To be nicer and more patient to the newer students, reluctantly, on the behest of the Dean.Long Term: To better understand and also harness his magic better, but also to pass the knowledge to whoever is deserving.Likes: Books, History-Fiction novels, Comfortable clothes and shoes, Dark chocolate, Maturity, Wittiness,Dislikes: Immaturity, High-school drama, Insecurity, Idiocy, Stupidity, Nosey People, Very talkative people, NaivetyFamily & Friends:Qin Delun - FatherJang Meirong - Mother (Deceased) Face Claim: Lee Min Ho On's and Off's: O/Os
