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.

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
