    The Despair-Inducing Game Brought to Life!


    Dangan Ronpa- is a Japanese video game franchise created and developed by Spike Chunsoft. The series revolves around the elite high school, Hope's Peak Academy which, every year, selects "Ultimate" students (or Super High School Level), talented high school students who are in the top of their field.

    Despair- The Complete loss or absence of Hope.

    Hope- Grounds for believing something good will happen.

    Talent- Natural Aptitude or Skill.

    Estorra Academy- The Setting of the Roleplay located in London, United Kingdom. The school is very much like Hope's Peak Academy, as the school selects talented and promising young students. It's also the grounds of where the first real life killing game to take place.

    • In Japan, there's a game called Dangan Ronpa that has a very straight forward premise: Talented Young Students are forced into a Kill or be Killed Killing game. A battle between good and bad A battle between Hope and Despair. Of course, this was only a visual novel. It wasn't real thankfully. After all, wouldn't it be Despair-Inducing if such a game was brought to life? Of course it would! Which means it has to happen...Right?


      Estorra Academy is a Multinational Elite High School located in the city of London in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1921, this Academy focused solely on the talented and promising young students from around the world who are at the top of their field, scouted to come and attend at the prestigious school. Some say that once you graduate from Estorra, you are absolutely set for life.
      Now, where have we heard this before? Oh yes. Some gamers like to compare the Estorra to the fictional Hope's Peak Academy. As both of them do focus on Talent. But what would this Elite School located in the United Kingdom have in Common with Hope's Peak Academy aside from Talent? Well-not that anyone knows this yet-but both Academies are the grounds where the world plummeted into Despair as well as where the First School Life of Mutual Killing took place.

      Recently, Estorra is celebrating 95 years of success as the school proudly welcomed it's 95th class, but this class will be treated differently then past classes of the school. As Orientation was slowly starting, a sudden black and white bear appeared before the group of students..

      “Hello! Hello! Boys and Girls! My name is Monokuma. And Starting Today, I'm your school's Headmaster!”

      The Fictional Mascot of the Game was real. Not just real, but he standing right there on the podium talking as if it was normal. He then explains that starting today, the students would be locked inside the school with only one way out: Kill Someone. Sounds all too familiar right? Now the 95th class is forced into a game of kill or be killed just like the Visual Novel. Will Despair Win? Or will Hope Prevail?

    • Estorra Academy:
      (Estorra Academy's emblem)
      The Setting of our story. Located in the city of London in the United Kingdom, this school was founded back in 1921 by a young woman named Celeste Fitzgerald. The school's focus is solely on Talent-with the creator believing that Talent of the young would bring hope to the future. The school started scouting young men and women between the ages of fourteen to eighteen with exceptional talent who would attend the school to hone their talents further. It was rumored in the late 1980s that those who attend the school and graduate would be set for life. The best cook of the school would later become the top culinary chef of the country, or the best photographer would later become a well known photography who travel the world.

      Before it became a multinational school, it was originally a small school that only scouted students from the area of London, then later around the United Kingdom. In 1974, the school introduced it's first four students from different countries. The first was from Germany, the second was from China, the third was from France, and the forth was from America. This was a test to determine if other young prodigies from other countries can integrate with the English Students. While it was a bumpy ride, the test was a success. In 1979, the school became multinational and accepted students from around the with promising talents to attend the school.

      At the Start of the new millennium, a new school building was made right in front of the old building. With this big change meant changes for the students of Estorra Academy. The students would finish their school semester in the old building (With the Last Class to graduate from the Old Building being the 75th Class) and later transfer into the new building for the new Semester. The 79th Class would be the first class to attend Estorra Academy. On August 10th, 2000, the old building was closed for good after 79 Years.

      The new building was much more Prestine and Beautiful compared to the old building. For starters, there was more floors. The old building had three floors and later had to have a smaller building close by to hold for seniors (which was also closed off and abandoned as of 8/10/00) The main building had Four Floors and was much longer to hold for four classes (which at the time, was the 79th, 78th, 77th, and 76th Class). Right next to the Main Building on either side was the Dormitory for the students. On the left side was for girls, and On the right side was for boys. On the right side of the new building was a large room later made for the Indoor Pool. On the left sideways the aforementioned small building that held the seniors for the old building.

      In 2010 with the introduction of the 89th Class, a game called Dangan Ronpa was released in Japan. Those who played the game found a distinct similarity of the fictional Hope's Peak Academy to Estorra Academy. This led to Protests wanting the school to close believing the school will bring the world into it's ultimate destruction. The Protests continued for a year before being silenced by the School's Current Headmaster Montgomery Tengan- which made promise that the world would not plummet into despair because of Estorra and those who believe such thing were silly. At least, that's what he thought.

      In 2016 The School was celebrating 95 years of success by welcoming it's 95th Class, believing the year would be brought with more promising Talent and Hope-little did they know that one of the 95th Students had different plans.


      Fan Mei's Suicide-

      In 1977, Two months before the 53rd Class's Graduation, one student committed suicide in the Headmasters room. This Student was Fan Mei-a Chinese Girl who was scouted by Estorra Academy in 1974. It turned out that Four Girls in her class was as well as two lowerclassmen were bullying Fan Mei brutally-convincing her to commit suicide. In Fan Mei's note, she blamed the school for her bullying, claiming it was their and their English Background's fault for her death. The Four Senior Girls were placed under arrest and the two lowerclassman were expelled from the school. At the 53rd Class's Graduation-the Valedictorian and the class had a moment of silence for Fan Mei, and several Former Students wished the best of luck to Fan Mei's Family.

      The Protests of 1986-

      In the Mid-1980's several protests started appearing before Estorra Academy. What were the Protests about? To grant those who don't have talent to attend. Those who didn't have the "Promising Talents" Estorra was looking for was tired of being overshadowed and wanted entry, wanting a bright future as well. The Protests lasted for six months before coming to a halt in August of 1986.

      Valentine's Day 1993-

      On Valentine's Day of 1993, Five Girls from the 71st Class were found dead in the girls locker room. The School was placed on Hard Lockdown when it's revealed that Five Terrorists had entered the school and had plans and killing the entire student body. The Five Terrorists were later found and captured by the School's Security. It turned out the Terrorists were actually five former students who were expelled from the school due to harassing girls, and this was their revenge. The Five girls were later mourned for by the 71st Class after the Terrorists were captured.

      New School Building for the New Year-

      In September of 1999, The School made plans to make a new school school building for the new millennium. Construction began in late September and Finished in May of 2000. But even when the school was finished the transfer of students and staff wouldn't commence until after the graduation of the 75th Class. Afterwards the Students and Staff were transferred to the new Building and the old building was officially closed. The First New Class to attend the new building was the 79th Class.

      Protests of 2010-

      In Japan of 2010 a game called Dangan Ronpa was released. A few months after it's release several of the game's buyers notice that Hope's Peak Academy was very similar to Estorra Academy. This led panic and fear in belief the school would drive the world into despair. In August of 2010-with the arrival of the 89th Class-Protests were held at the gates of the school, with wanting the school to close down. The Protests continued into 2011, getting more and more hostile until the Headmaster Montgomery Tengan spoke publicly on the matter. He claimed that such a game to bring such fear in belief that a academy would bring the world into it's ultimate destruction was silly, and claimed the school would never do such thing. The Protests officially ended in October of 2011.

      Delaney's Aries Suicide and the Weapons Removal Act-
      In 2011, another Suicide occurred this time 34 Years after the first one. This time it occurred during the first semester for the newest class- The 90th Class of Estorra Academy. Located in Sebastian Libra's dorm room, Delaney Aries was found dead from a blow to the head from a gun that Sebastian possessed. According to the doctors that worked at Estorra, it was a suicide. Upon learning about Delaney and Sebastian's Abusive Relationship, Sebastian was expelled from the school for harming another student and 'possessing' them. Delaney's suicide also led to the 'Weapons Removal Act' at Estorra. All weapons were forbidden and removed from inside the school. Any student or fellow teacher holding onto or wielding a weapon would be punished severely.

      95 Years of Success in 2016-

      On May 15th, 2016, Estorra Academy celebrated it's 95th Anniversary of success and absolute talent. The Anniversary continued for the rest of the year with the introduction of the 95th Class in August. The rest of the year of fun, happiness, and hope, but not for long.

      Femme Fatale-
      A Group of girls who were a part of the 95th Class that were founded in September of 2016. This Small Club later made their hideout in the old school building. They later disbanded a month after due to reasons.

  3. Reserving a space as the Ultimate Impartiality!
  4. Starting afresh

    "To have bias is to deceive oneself: to see the truth one must purge themselves of bias."



    Full Name: Cassius Verda Gray

    Nickname(s): Cas- abbreviation of Cassius. Candid- derives from ultimate ability and sounds similar to name.

    Age: 17, soon to be 18.

    Birthday: October 1st, 1998.

    Gender: Unknown. They keep their gender hidden from the pubic so it doesn't cause bias.

    Nationality: British.

    Sexual Orientation: Unknown, but likely either pansexual or asexual. They keep their sexual orientation hidden for the same reason as their gender- however, people suspect is unlikely that the Ultimate Impartiality would have a gender preference.

    Zodiac Sign: Libra

    SHSL: Impartiality


    Virtues: Fair, cautious, judicious.

    Flaws: Apathetic, insensitive, disloyal.


    Likes: Trials, science, coffee, grey, cleanliness, suits.


    Fears: To be deceived.

    Physical Appearance

    Height: 5'8".

    Weight: 140 pounds.

    Bust: 90cm? Is that reasonable? I don't have any clue how to measure bust, I just looked at a chart.

    Blood Type: Pink. AB.



    Place of Birth:

    Full History: (Please explain in your character's history how they began with their talent. Also explain how the got into Estorra Academy.)


    Family: Note to self- One parent of spanish origin.

    Friends: (If they have any)

    Pets: None, they are too messy.

    Enemies: They do not consider themselves to have any. Cas acknowledges other people consider them to be an enemy, usually due to Cas not accepting some agenda they have, but Cas refuses to see them as an enemy in return.


    Face Claim: Charles/Charlotte Dunois? However their general appearance is closer to the image at the top, which I could find no name for. I believe I have finally identified the character at the top as Licht Blaue from Magia Mystica. What I still cannot discover is who drew the original art.

    Voice: Glass Reflection. The slightly posh accent just feels right.

    Character Banner: Would prefer to be provide with one.

    Colour of Dialogue: "Truth is singular. Lies are words and words and words. Madame Vastra."

  5. So... Danganronpa the game exists in this universe? Does that mean our characters are allowed to know about it and make educated guesses about what's going on based on it?
  6. I'm interested! One question. What's a...Character Banner?
  7. In Danganronpa when the characters are introduced they all have a banner sort of thing which displays their name and ultimate. You can see what they look like here. I presume this is what Mirai means by character banner.

    EDIT: It is also worth mentioning 'Super (Duper) High School Level' = 'Ultimate'. These are different translations of the same phrase.
  8. Thanks for the prompt answer! Oddly, I was just looking through an RP of yours.
    But yeah, I'm aware of the Danganronpa banners but I can't make one for a character myself so I was asking about it to check if Mirai has her own format or something. ^^;
  9. Look at the class Roster. There's one for Monokuma.
  10. So, it's a requirement to make one just like in the original?
  11. *Monokuma Voice* That's Riiiight!

    Although, it would be nice of everyone didn't know the game, just a few people. I'll you one thing my character knows about Dangan Ronpa.
  12. I just happened to be checking my Iwaku notifications when I saw your question, so I thought I may as well try to answer in case you don't know much about the game. Obviously you'll need to ask Mirai about specifics of the format she prefers. :)
  13. No. If you need help with a Banner, I'll help you.
  14. I would certainly appreciate that. I'll make a CS and let me know what I must do. Thanks so much. Sorry if I'm a bit of a caveman.
  15. Your not a caveman. It's fine. Welcome aboard! :D
  16. They're not?! :O
    • Love Love x 1
  17. No.
  18. Are we allowed to use images for our CS that are characters from the game ?
  19. Man, and there I thought I'd met the SHSL Caveman... ;P
