I've only really ever done freeform myself...but I'm more than willing to give a system based game a shot, because I really am interested in this. Here are my character submissions! Let me know if I need to change anything!
Personality (Should include O&O's): Zenobia is surprisingly level headed, and quite intelligent despite misconceptions based on what she is and how strong her kind tend to be. Despite that, if someone or something does actually manage to piss her off, it tends to be explosive and destructive enough to compare to those of berserker rages. She is also slightly sadistic, and can be ruthless/cruel at times. However, for those who have earned her trust and care, her loyalty is absolute and she will do everything in her power to not let those people down and keep them safe. She typically expresses her feelings through actions rather than words when she does show them, though if one were to be good at reading emotions through eye contact, what she feels would be clear as day all the time. Her favorite thing, surprisingly, shows that the saying "Music can soothe the savage beast" does apply to Zenobia. However, this is only true with 80's music, really. Stuff like Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Michael Jackson, MC Hammer, and so on, and so forth. There are, of course, some 80's songs she's not fond of, but for the most part she adores it. She doesn't really like any other era, but never play anything from the 60's around her. She will likely break whatever is playing the music, possibly by using the responsible party's face.
As for ons and offs, please see my O/O's
page for the basics. Beyond that, she is straight and very much enjoys using the fact that her venom has an alternate effect on humans, (see below in stats) as well as the fact her tail actually can open up
and have fun in other ways. In fact, she will only use that method as opposed to spreading her legs, at least at first. However, if a relationship goes on long enough, and she absorbs enough 'spiritual energy' through this means, her body will physically adapt to perfectly fit to her mate's shape and size, at which point normal intercourse will become beyond mind blowing for them both. If and when that occurs, she will consider herself mated for life to the person. She will potentially mark her claims using shallow scratches made by her claws, mixing pleasure with pain in the process.
Bio: Zenobia's life, for a manticore, was fairly normal until the whole rift situation that spit her, among many other monsters, out onto the world known as Earth. She managed to cope, adapting fairly well to her new environment and situation. Even thriving in it, until that damn airborne mutagen was released. She was displeased, to say the least, when everything she knew went to hell and everything she was and had always been perfectly capable of doing suddenly became reliant on being a recipient of willful kindness from humans. She's still rather miffed about it, actually, but she has recently given up on trying to do things on her own, accepted that this is how things are going to be from here on out, and signed up to go to this stupid college that the humans set up for this sort of thing. Of course, she's been having issues getting such kindness on a frequent basis, simply because she tended to make people feel uncomfortable when trying to get attention. With any luck, she'll manage to find people to work with properly at this place...

Snugel-Bonnie Affinity: Physical Activities (Dancing, sports, sex, or just about anything else that involves physical exertion)
Weakness: While she is strong and tough, Zenobia is not necessarily very quick or agile. Outmaneuvering her with speed and agility is possible, though flinging spikes from her tail can help her overcome that issue. Past that, fire is something that can cause issues with her unless it's easily controlled (like on a stovetop or a properly made campfire).
Name: Trevor Valtarius
Bio: Trevor was a terribly abused child, and he still has some scars to show for it, especially on his hands. His parents' favorite way of punishing him, whether he did anything wrong or not, was to hold his hands over an open stovetop flame. While he eventually got away from them when neighbors finally took notice and called Child Protection Services, he has never fully recovered from the mental and physical stresses he went through as a child. Concerning his hands, they have managed to heal in a way that leaves him still somewhat able to use them over time, though they are heavily scarred from the burns he had suffered over those years. He wears gloves all the time to hide this fact. He is also as skinny as a twig due to never eating as much as he should, has platinum blonde hair, and oceanlike blue eyes. He sews all his own clothing, though usually these take the form of full body robes, (again, to keep abuse based scars hidden, as well as to make himself look less anorexic) much like what a mage might wear.
His quirks have made him a target more than anything, despite how intelligent he always has been. Even when being bullied, he never really fought back, never tried to hurt anyone. He simply attempted to mind his own business as much as possible, and get through school as quickly as possible. It didn't take him overly long, and he actually had a master's degree with a focus on history by age 17. However, with how the world was going with the whole monster situation, he felt like he wanted to help however he could. Surely, even a large group of monsters might need someone who could play the role of strategist and tactician, right? He found it rather easy to get in the school, being accepted shortly after his eighteenth birthday, though he had to wonder....would the people and monsters there treat him like everyone else had so far throughout his life? The only way to find out was to attend.
Personality: Trevor is nimble and extremely smart, but he is rather shy, somewhat frail in constitution, and overall not a very good fighter. His favorite thing to do is to read. It doesn't matter what the book is about, as long as it has lots of text. Considering he's read encyclopedias, and coupled with his rather good memory, this has expanded his levels of knowledge quite high when coupled with his amazing memory. What he lacks in physical capabilities, he more than makes up for with brilliance of mind. He is a very kind and good person though, and would never go out of his way to cause anyone else harm. However, his brilliant mind, among other quirks and things, have tended to attract bullies of all sorts throughout his life. He will stand up for what he feels is right, even if it means he just winds up as the nail that sticks up the most. Aside from that, he does his best to avoid getting in fights of any sort if he can help it.
As for ons and offs, please see my O/O's
page for the basics. He has no idea what he does and doesn't like yet, since he has never had sex before, much less thought a lot about it.
