I just realised that I totally messed up on the application with the specialisation. All corrected now! >.<

CHARACTER APPLICATION

Leto

Name: Leto Visburn
Age: 18
Enrollment Age: 7
Gender: Male

Theme Song

Weapon: Oathkeeper
Weapon Description:
weapon

Specialization: Partisan Accolade/Martial Artist
Extra Skills: Wielder of Qi - In an effort to calm his inner storm and keep his mental strength up Leto has gotten into the routine of performing martial arts techniques in a controlled manner. While it may look like he is slowly dancing to an invisible tune you are mistaken. With the proper speed, reflex and force those very moves will disable anyone.
Current Ranking: Cadet
Victory Motto: "It's ok, you can cry if you want to."
Limit Break: Celestial Wind
Limit Break Description: Leto will spin his partisan around to create a cyclone around and he will then slash the target multiple times for 10 seconds. (estimated total of 8-9 hits)
Personality: When he was younger he was naive about the world and was quite trusting, however as he has grown older he has learned the hard way not to trust everyone and how to hide his honest thoughts and feelings, even around his sister. These days he puts the mask of being a charming, flirtatious, gentleman that can be a very perverted, wicked and mischievous simply when he feels like it. On the inside, he is always assessing people for their intentions and worthiness to see his real self.
What shows that he is the older twin is the fact that he is quite mature for his age, refuses to rely on anyone for help and considering how he appears on the outside he is more insightful than one would think.


GF APPLICATION


GF

Name: Alexander
Established Connection:  Yet to meet him.
Element: Holy
Bonus: Revive,Vitality+, Mana+
Special Attack: Divine Judgement
Special Attack Description: Alexander will then open his wings to unleash holy missiles do holy damage to the enemy/s.

Backstory:

Leto and Senka were born with an hour between them to loving parents who doted on them. Everything seemed perfect and set out for the family to do well. Their father had a stable job as a news anchor now the network had been reactivated for so many years and their mother simply stayed at home. Their "perfect" life was thrown into chaos when they travelled to a sea town for a holiday.

While the twins were left with the hotel's child care service their parents went out for a spot of evening sighting only to not come back. Once it was midday the staff contacted the local police who began a search for the parents. It was late evening when their bodies were found at the bottom of a cliff a few hours drive away from the town. The duo didn't realise it, but a year before the incident that took their parent's life they had applied for the twins to go to Galbadia Garden once they were twelve, however, the garden was prepared to take them early considering the circumstances.

Life was very different and hard to adjust to in Galbadia, especially considering the circumstances of their enrollment and the strict and unloving environment they now had to endure. It was when they were thirteen that they discovered what had happened to their parents and that it only took a few days for their parent's death to be classed as a cold case. This gave them both a wake-up call that made them change from generally good children to the rebellious pranksters they are now.

They have been transferred to Balamb garden because the administrators of Galbadia cannot take their antics any much longer. While their talent in class and combat is recognised they felt that their behaviour outweighed their worth as students. Galbadia does not want their training to go to waste and hope that somehow Balamb can straighten out the twins.

Character Journal
To start:

They have transferred to Balamb and rumors from Galbadia of their mischievous nature and antics have travelled ahead of them.

CHARACTER APPLICATION

Senka

Name: Senka Visburn
Age: 18
Enrollment Age: 7
Gender: Female
Theme Song

Weapon: Oathbreaker
Weapon Description:
Weapon
Talis: A fairly new piece of technology which the user can simply strap to their belt. When needed, the light machine simply needs to be taken from where it is holstered and will then eject photon cards, on command, which the user throws at their target to deal normal damage. The user can also cast spells onto such as fire, ice, blizzard, poison and silence to deal extra damage and or status effects. 
Specialization: Tri-Magic (uses status only magic from all three areas.)
Extra Skills: Something out of nothing - Senka's mischievous streak over the years has given her a little "talent" to create tools, and occasionally weapons out of seemingly everyday objects. Nothing is safe from her prankster antics.
Need a stink bomb but the garden science lab is locked up tight? Not a problem for lil' Senka! All you need is a boiled egg or two and a sock (stinky one would be an extra good idea!) Then carefully place it behind a radiator in the desired room and leave to brew. They'll never see it coming! Fufufufu~
Spell List:
White Magic
Level 1:
  • Scan
  • Haste
Grey Magic
Level 1:
  • Sleep
  • Blind

Current Ranking: Cadet
Victory Motto: "What's wrong? Did I ruin your hair?"
Limit Break: Toxic Tears
Limit Break Description: Senka will fire multiple talis cards (roughly10-20)into the air and will cast a random status effect on them which has a 25% fail rate depending on resistance check. If there is a mage in the party there is a 50% possibility of adding random elemental damage. To finish, she will cast Esuna to remove all status effects on the party.
Personality: When she was younger she was a bit of a crybaby and was prone to being a little more emotionally sensitive than most children. However, this has changed as she has grown up. These days she tends to be more confident, teasing and playful in nature, sometimes to the point of irritation. Her heart is an open book as she believes in hiding nothing about herself and expects the same from others. What truly shows she is the younger twin is the fact that she more immature and has a hot temper compared to her brother and is dependent on him for mental and emotional support, often to the point that it has ruined any possible relationships for either of them.


GF APPLICATION


GF

Name: Dark Falz
Established Connection:  Yet to meet him.
Element: Time/Space/Dark

WIP.

CHARACTER APPLICATION
Name:  Victor Merryweather
Age: 17
Enrollment Age: 5
Gender:  Male
Theme Song

Weapon: By Right or By Might Weapon Description: By Right or by Might is an 8' ranseur pole-arm with a jagged blade.  The weapon belonged to his mother, Adeen, who died while giving birth to him.  The weapon is magical:  it empowers Victor's leaping ability and breaks his long-distance falls, is nigh-unbreakable, and maintains itself free of blood.

Specialization:  Advanced Military Operations {Dragoon}
Extra Skills: Close-Combat, Calvary Charge;
Current Ranking: Candidate
Victory Motto:  "Typical."
Limit Break: A Dragoon's Response Limit Break Description:  Victor Merryweather pauses for a moment, and then coils his steel limbs, crouching low.  Then, he leaps high into the air, clearing nearly 100 yards.  He then descends down upon his enemy, and pounces them with a devastating blow from his ranseur.  With his ranseur interred, Victor snarls as he tears it out and hops off of his enemy.

Personality:  Victor Merryweather is a brooding, violent sort.  He is generally taciturn, and he dislikes almost everything.  He is not academic, and hates to study.  He likes to fight, drink, and chase skirts.  Victor likes his older brother, Abel, but the two are very different people.  The two are regularly seen around town or at the quad, hanging out.

Victor isn't romantic and is bored of women his age.  He can be sarcastic or an aggressive brute.  The young man enjoys to bleed.

Backstory:  Victor is the youngest of the Merryweather children, who were orphaned when their father fell in the line of duty.  Victor is close to his older brother, Abel, despite differences in character.

Appearance:  Victor is a very large caucasian male that participates in intense daily exercise.  He has many tattoos and a few scars.  He is very muscular.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

GF APPLICATION
Name:  Huitzilopochtli
Established Connection:  When Victor finally inherited his ranseur at the age of 10, Huitzilopochtli sought him out and conquered him.
Element:  Fire
Description: Huitzilopochtli is a frail man upon a mound of flesh and earth -- his appearance belies his might, and makes him altogether more dangerous.
Bonus:  STR-J+, DEF-J, Scan
Special Attack: Turn of the Century Special Attack Description:  The cries of wounded men bellow from below, and a frail man appears sitting upon a mound of dirt above.  He opens his burning eyes and stares at the enemy.  Vegetation grows.  Rocks erode.  And a century passes by.  The enemy becomes bone and then dust, and is interspersed into the horizon.  Then, the century unwinds, returning the enemy to the status quo -- but he is injured mentally and spiritually by his ultimate fate regardless of what happens today.

He gets injured a lot.  Maybe he just likes to get stitched by the pretty nurses.

I think Senka would like to stitch him up but not in "healing" way and more in the "you just got punked" way. <.<

She would likely sign him up to be a nude model for art class and then get someone to tell him that a nurse or someone wanted to talk to him about something private in the art room. I think you'd see where that would end up...fufufufufu~

Ah.  Well, he's ...  sort of mean.  He would probably respond with, "How would you like me to break your jaw?  With my fist or with my dick?"  But some girls dig that.

Thanks for that 'holy fuck.'  I like to pretend it's cuz we're so awesome ;D  Anyway yes, it is currently still open!  Also all those that have state interest but have not submitted characters please, still feel free to do so.  I have also just updated the initial posting to include correct links (mainly for the Information Guide which is in the process of being revamped)


We currently have 44 active characters (39 which are posting regularly and 5 yet to make an introduction post) - as a note of interest, we have plenty of long pole arms/spears/halberd or I'm sure there's some sort of name for that general category but it escapes me at the moment.  So I would stay away from that type of weapon.  Revenent is handling new characters so you can post it here (and he will get a hold of you) or PM it to him.

Yeah it can be. I should be ready soon..hopefully.

FFVIII was the game that got me into FF to begin with.  Was the first Final Fantasy game I ever played which got me into the other ones.  So it kind of has a special place in my heart regardless of what people say. :)
