I'm interested. Can a char be literally raised at the garden from 5 years old? Basically left there by parents or something

Yes very much so, we have several students that have been 'left,' 'abandoned' 'dropped off' and some are simply sent to do their duty to the family.  ;D

Offline Snake

Then that works. I was going ot use a char that basically was unwanted by his mom (father unknown) and simply abandoned at Balamb's gates.

He uses a specially designed gauntly that had retractable claws over the fingers (like those dragon claw rings that you see in hot topic and shit like that) but are sharp and durable. With a bracer attached and tiny explosive charge in the fist (knuckle bombs basically, an idea from BGC2040)

if that's acceptable. That is

Offline Florence

Alright, Aya's approved, thank you for changing things as requested.

As for the knuckle bombs... I'm mostly just curious as to how it works, wouldn't that damage the wielder as well?

Offline Sylia

The explosive charge is focused outwards, so when you impact against something with your fist, the charge detonates and blasts into the target. At least that's how it worked on Bubblegum crisis 2040!

Offline Revenent

My thought now is like a knuckle version of the gunblade, at least how it's represented visually where there's an explosion on the target when you use it.

Offline Mossberg

Nobody is SeeD yet.

This character seems a bit too strong for my liking.

I'm not above tweaking things, and making judicious edits as needed.

*Edited content*
Changed the Element Immunity to Immune to Earth Spells though weak still.
Removal of old bonuses and added new ones that seem more reasonable.



CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name: Farren McCoy
Age: 18
Enrollment Age: 9
Gender: Male
Theme Song

Weapon: Hands free gloves & Knee pads taser
Weapon Description: Two gloves that go up to ones upper arm. It is a prototype weapon created to use the black magic spell 'Thunder' as well as its variants as concentrated shocks. Unlike the picture below the gloves have been tailored to be finger-less. As for the Knee pads they work the same way the
Weapon

Specialization: Black Mage / Close combat specialist
Though does more thunder type spells then others. He is in tune with that element more then any other.
Personality:
Farren can be kind of blunt when it comes to things such as honesty. Saying what is on his mind regardless if its content is bad or good, and many people do not like that aspect about him very much. Yet regardless he sees it that one should be truthful instead of coating the truth to be swallowed down. If he says something that is primarily bad do not hold it against him so much. It was how he was taught.

The young man can have his moments were things are above him. This shows Farren is not the smartest soul in the world. In that regard he is most commonly outwitted with woman and how they act toward him not knowing if its flirting or just simple talk. When talking to girls he will act as emotionless as possible so he is not read wrong. Farren does it poorly at that despite his struggle. One can call him a failure at women, then again aren't most men?

He has a temper when it comes to fighting, or general topics. Its not something he can fully control. He gets it from his father's side of the family. When he is mad there is little to nothing that can stop him from wrecking something. Be it a plan or some physical. Coming to him and picking fights with him can be the general cause for this temper due or being so different in appearance.

Backstory:
The McCoy are long time Mercenaries and Assassins that do not relay on the ways of magic unless they were Healers. There was a rule in this bloodline that men had to learn to fight with their fist before advancing to weaponry. As time went on in this family it was split in half due to gender. Men were not born with any magical abilities and were the solely fighters for hire, while the girls became good with magic of healing and other forms. When Farren was said to be born the elders had thought it would be a girl since one of the women had fore told her that her child would be a great magic user who could use thunder to a alarmingly advanced state. His mother had already chose the name Ferra for her daughters birth. Both of his parents were thrilled to bring another into their ranks. His father was taken aback due to it being a boy instead of a girl calling him Farren meaning 'Thunder'. Both did not know what to do about their baby boy since he would have to learn how to fight and not use his god given gift of magic.

At an early age he was trained in hand to hand combat taught to work without his power. His mother on the other hand wanted him to flourish and nurture the gift he was given. After eight years the boys mother could not help deal with the idea of Farren not using his full potential. Taking him away in the middle of the night to a large city were he was dropped off with hope of a better way of life. The young boy was taken in by a man that was well adapt with magic use training him in novice magic. Once black hair turned stark white leaving little strands of his former self as well. In the span of a month the man sent the young boy to Trabia for more training then he himself could teach.

He would keep to himself as the years went on gaining his sibling Guardian Force 'The Brothers' to keep in check the abilities held. They were given to him out of faith that he'd know how to communicate with them and grow as a person. Both Sacred and Minotaur kept Farren in check on a day to day basis being used as a crutch while he learned other spells and gained experience. Sacred the older yet smaller brother was primarily used as the voice of reason when his anger was unchecked, while Minotaur capped his power to mentally and physically grow. After many a year passed his teachers saw it fit yo transfer him to Balamb Garden so when the time came he could rise up to become something worth while just like his mother had wished for her child long ago.

Appearance:
Character

GF APPLICATION
Name:  Sacred and Minotaur aka 'The Brothers'

A pair of Minotaur siblings that have black fur with a blue tint to it. Each have a shield inscribed with a symbol. The smaller having 'Older brother' while the larger holds 'Younger brother'
Bonus: M.Defense Up (Minotaur) or P.Defense Up (Sacred) |Can only pick one at for a long period of time|
Special Attack:
Mad Cow Special | When summoned the brothers break through the earth with weapons in hand causing an earthquake that deals heavy damage to those that are on land based or standing. This attack leaves the landscape altered through out the battle giving.
Brotherly Love | Sacred is summoned underneath the ground lifting up a large portion of the the battle field chucking it up into the sky. Minotaur is summoned soon after as they both decide with one will go next. The loser is tossed up after the enemy and crashes through so the monster or opponent will fall causing more damage.

No offense guy, but physical immunity is too much for my tastes. Somewhat more realistic, like just increased defense, will sit better with me.


Bonus: Element Immunity(Besides earth), Healing factor(Only on ground), (Above Average) Physical & Magic Defense.
Elemental immunity is also too much. Remember, it's as if your character were starting before the beginning of the game, just thirty years later. If that makes sense...

Changed it to just immune to Earth type spells. Did so since he is good with thunder spells overall.
If there is any other aspect that seems off please do not hesitate to call me up on them so they can be corrected post haste.

No offense taken. I'll come up with something else.

I myself don't have any problem with the rest but you need to wait for Finn and/or Fenrir to check it to be sure they don't have a problem with anything.

Same thing goes for you Tarot Card lol.

Offline AndyZ

No offense taken. I'll come up with something else.

If he finds pleasure and power from being beaten, and his GF seems to reflect this, maybe instead of physical immunity he gets stronger and more powerful the more crap has been beaten out of him?

This would probably mean that he's covered in scars and that people are iffy about healing him before the battle is truly over, so his life would be constantly on the line until he collapses.

You know what, I'm kicking myself for not coming up with those ideas myself; that fits quite perfectly, especially with how psyched up he gets during fights.  I'd imagine someone in the Berserk state would be shouting bloody murder and threats of ripping off arms and beating people to death with them.

Maybe a heightened rate of natural recovery, representing his ability to handle being injured a lot better than others? Otherwise, probably just high vitality and strength.

Scars is a definite thing, and he'll likely just tell any healers to focus on the people that "need it" more than he does. Might make it where, since his GF basically dead/a zombie, that healing magic might actually hurt him, or be greatly reduced, as a balance.

Thanks, guys, I'll have Pain 2.0 up later today/tomorrow.

Offline AndyZ

I could totally see that.  You can't actually be healed, and you get the crap beaten out of you, but your GF keeps you from actually slipping over the cusp and into dead.  I would imagine that you end up in an unconscious state similar to Vampire's Torpor, where you heal up to functional but still scar, once you reach the limits of what your body can endure.

I apologize guys that we have not gotten back to you with your characters as of yet.  Finn has been having rl issues as of late- and I'm pretty much the secretary  ::)  He prefers to have the final say on everything but I will push him this way when I can.

Btw... >.>  I very much like this berserk idea *nods*

There is two to three things to remember about Berserk.

    1. The person essentially attacks the closest melee target while in this state.
    2. It is not a passive skill, otherwise it would be active all the time and we would all have to band together to kill the "Wild, ravaging beast."
    3. Like the Barbarians Rage effect in D&D, I believe that it would lower their defense and slightly wind them after it.

Offline AndyZ

I think that Berserk lets you tell friend from foe, though.  It never makes you attack your allies, and in the Returner Games RPG system, it specifically says opponent (or inanimate object).

This is probably what you meant, but I feel it an important distinction to make.

Offline Revenent

I could still see issues with a student walking around in constant Berserk state at all hours of the day, though.

Offline AndyZ

Oh yeah, definitely wouldn't want it on 24/7, but he could probably activate it at will.

Deactivation might be another story, at least until he runs out of targets...

This.

Bonus: Immune to Earth spells(Novice), Healing factor(Only on ground), (Above Average) Physical & Magic Defense.

The combination of these seems a tad overkill to me. Especially once I read the words "healing factor" and my mind goes to Wolverine. That healing factor means whenever he's on the ground, he essentially has regen on, combined with an immunity to Earth spells, and a high defense. He's essentially a living tank. I'd really prefer this get toned down. Look at the accepted characters list, and bring it to more that level.

My thought now is like a knuckle version of the gunblade, at least how it's represented visually where there's an explosion on the target when you use it.

That... isn't a half bad idea. Instead of explosives, you could use the same vibration cells that are used with gunblades, have it be a shockwave. I'd approve that, certainly.

I think you're right there. I thought it was like a berserk+confuse combo. Once I thought about it though, I realized that you're right.

(btw Sylia's right, the blast is focused outward like a shape-charge for cutting through walls during breach ops that SWAT an spec ops do)

CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name: Sanosuke Inoue
Age: 19
Enrollment Age: 5
Gender: Male

Weapon: "Dragon Talon" (Specially claw-bracers)
Specialization:
Personality: Withdrawn but aggressive, yet reliable, trustworthy and extremely loyal. Sanosuke has his own issues yes, tending toward react-then-think but it's not to say he isn't capable of tactical reasoning.  He trusts very few people even within the SEED Units; understanding that you have to rely on them for certain things and extending trust on a battlefield is (to him) different than dropping your guard around them in a social manner.  But to those that've earned his respect through deed are regarded as valuable comrades and worthy of the most amount of faith one can place in someone.  SAnosuke isn't a "private" person; he lives very openly and almost completely without a sense of shame, beliving that "you should look at yourself before you judge me."

As said: yes he is very aggressive in his approach to life, if he wants something his natural instinct is to go for it heedless of what others may think or say.  Though not stupid: he does defer to others abilities when the situation requires it.  He makes an excellent soldier for he has no real fear of anything save ending up completely alone.
Backstory: Sanosuke was...unwanted straight from birth. His mother was a celebrity of sorts and when she had him, fathered by a man that only spent a single night, seeing this as shameful she tried to conceal his existence for years. Physicaly abusing the boy so he wouldn't bear a strong resemblance to her but he did favor his father; which was the catalyst of the abuse. HIs mother's only way to get back at the man that'd broken her heart and left her "holding the bag" as it were.  Originally born in Dollet, Sano was abandoned by his mother at the age of 5 and sent to Balamb Garden, blindfolded and temporarily deafened so he couldn't find his way back. 

He's lived there and served as a trainee first then a soldier then finally a SEED candidate. Sano knows no other life.
Appearance: 6'2", Very long wild black/brown hair, Orange-Red eyes, Medium-brown skintone (Native American is what i'm going for here). Sanosuke has a body of hard-but-lean muscle and very little extraneous fat with 4 large criss-cross scars across his back.


GF APPLICATION
Name: Diablos
Element: Gravity
Description: SAme demon from ff8
Bonus: Focuses on HP growth (for both Sanosuke and Diablos) and time magic
Special Attack: Dark Messenger
