    Welcome to Larkcliff Academy

    Everyday, you are not alone. The world watches you with keen eyes, prying and searching for the information you've tried to hide, the things deep within your soul you'll do anything to keep secret.

    Despite it's name, this place is not a school- not in the traditional sense. There is no uniform, there are few rules and many of the teachers are relaxed in their ways. There are classes- but not the ones you are used to. Subject choices include advanced sword fighting, animal training, meditation and soul connection classes.

    Oh, didn't we tell you?

    You've been chosen.

    You may not want to be here. That's fine.

    You may love it here, this home away from the world. That is also fine.

    But you HAVE been chosen for one thing- and one thing only.

    Your soul is different. It's working differently, developing on a different path to most young people your age. It's expanding and it's powerful and from the moment you were born, you have known it. It's been hovering over your shoulder, in the back of your mind like a dirty secret and everyday you subconsciously hide it from the world.

    You may be wondering what we mean by 'different'.

    Let's put it in simple terms.


    Each creature has a soul, infinitely linked to its' existence and it was thought to be impossible for souls to be transferred or.... connected. Until your generation showed up. We've noticed something, something strange. You have the ability to connect with other souls, communicate and expand and become more powerful. You can permanently connect with another, you've been connected to another since you were born.

    You know this, don't you?

    You realised it a few hours ago, when you found this letter in your mailbox and as soon as your hand hit this heavy parchment, you knew it. You rummage through the attached parcel, inside just a small oval rock sits. It's a rock, egg shaped and beautiful in appearance, in the colours and patterns you would have instinctively chosen.

    And inside that rock, you feel the first flicker of a heartbeat.



    Larkcliff Academy

    This prestigious academy is located on the coastline of Southern France, the large estate and academy perched on the edge of the vast Mediterranean seascape of southern France. With beautiful semi-tropical and mild weather, this academy is state of the art and open only by invitation, no matter how much money one is willing to pay. The school does not accept applications, it has maintained it's elusive schooling nature by contacting each student personally.

    The vast estate is a mere five minutes from the water, with a large forest to the northern and many cliffs and various areas to explore, all of which are open to the students when they have time to explore such places.

    Students are placed in dorms via their age and years, gender is not an issue and it is not uncommon for students to be paired with the opposite gender. Dorms consist of four students each, of which all four are considered to be part of the dorms successes and failures.

    Dorm groups determined your privileges and limitations while at the school. If one student screws up, the privileges for the entire group are withdrawn for a period of time.

    But this prestigious academy has many secrets, both tangible and intangible in nature and the media has very little access to the ongoings within the school.

    But within, students are training as hard as one would train an army. Trained in combat and strategy and leadership and their innate talents....

    Perhaps, they are one?

    How peculiar...

    Additional Dorms will be added if there is more room needed.

    Younger years can be requested but as they are younger, they will have less influence on the plot since it is squarely based on the graduating and older students near graduation.

    Eidetic Memory

    THIS IS DIFFERENT TO PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY: SEE LINK FOR MORE DETAILS AND CLARIFICATION.

    http://4nthony.com/the-difference-between-photographic-memory-and-eidetic-memory/

    http://povhouma.com/photographic-vs-eidetic-memory/

    Eidetic memory is different to photographic memory. Whereas, photographic memory is the ability to recall seen images, such as drawings, information and numbers: eidetic memory is the ability to recall instantly things you have felt with ANY of your senses- taste, touch, scent, hearing, sight. She has very good audio recall, as well as being able to remember quite a bit of what she smells. Since she has a very good memory, she has chosen to memorise the scents of the plants she grows, often being exceptionally accurate and being able to pinpoint poison plants by scent alone.

    Name
    Charlie “Char” Farver

    Age
    Seventeen

    Gender
    Male

    Sexuality
    Presumed to be bisexual, but is known for hopping on anything with a beat.

    Nationality
    North American

    Year
    Fourth Year

    Dorm

    Daemon
    Dubbed “Laevifidus” or “Vifi”(pronounced as Vivi) for short, Char's daemon is a black crow. Befitting it's name, the bird is well known for it's trickery, dropping pebbles on unsuspecting students or cawing loudly to shock unsuspecting passerbys. It has a very regal air about it despite being a crow, and makes for a quite menacing bird of royalty at that. Students have often confessed to having seen it out on their window, threateningly sharpening it's beak. When questioned, Char always answers with a smile and assures that Vifi is nothing less than sweet, and a quick look over the crow when next to the blonde can change the minds of many, as it often brings shiny things and is for the most part docile. Again, untrustworthy.
    It also likes to take forms of several different insects, from japanese giant hornets to leeches, to centipedes, to spiders. Most often it is a crow, however, it's second preferred form being a mukade. Vifi rarely chooses anything larger than fat cat, both because of matters regarding comfort, and also to tease for his own master's petite figure.
    The easiest way to know that Vifi is Vifi and not any other crow is it's tendency to have eyes that glitter like stars when the sun hits it the right way.

    Personality
    Charming | Manipulative | Honest | Sarcastic | Energetic | Sweet | Friendly | Abusive(Mentally) | Cold | Apathetic

    Appearance
    Standing at a meager five foot five, Char is evidently much shorter than the typical male his age. He makes up for it with a pretty face, crowned with golden blonde hair. He dresses androgynously for the most part, and never gets mad when is mistaken for the other gender. If anything, the boy wears frills to blur the lines further, but continues to be a stickler of using his pronouns. Everything about the boy from top to bottom is pale, marred only in places hidden by clothing with bruising and scars and cuts. Char often wears collared shirts or jewelry to cover his neck, and taking it off would reveal bruising of different shades. He is also often well known for his chapped red lips and pink fingers, the colour bright against his white skin.

    Ability/Talent
    Char is very good at reading people and their hearts, and thus has earned an amazing talent in manipulating people's thoughts and beliefs. In a simpler term, one could say that Char was very adept in hypnotism. He prefers not the use the term hypnosis though, given it is much more than that-- if anything, it would be the skewing of one's perception. From a young age Char has learned how to move his body and say his words to make a person more open to speaking with him, and if the child so wishes, have them break down.

    History (opt.)
    TBA

    Other information
    Is pampered by several close students, all of whom believe Char sees them as his closest friend.
    In truth, he and Vifi bicker often, but despite this, they are best friends. Which, given the fact that their soul are connected, is to be expected.




    oof, hope this is good!!))

    Name
    Malaika James
    Age
    16
    Gender
    Female
    Sexuality
    Bisexual
    Nationality
    African American
    Year
    Third Year
    Dorm 2
    Daemon
    Korinn/Kirin or 'K'
    K is a male canine based creature who usually appears in the form of;
    A canine forest sprite for innocent curiosity, happiness and confusion.
    A puppy for indifference, nonchalance and sadness.
    And a hellhound for rage.
    K is a loyal beast however he is quick to anger and hard to pacify. When angered he howls and screams and is willing to tear down anything in his path to satisfy his constant hunger for vengeance. However, even though he has a short fuse, if Malaika is quick enough, she can calm him down and get him off track. Despite his thoroughness in achieving vengeance at that given moment, K tends to be forgetful so if he doesn't get his vengeance right there and then or if he isn't reminded, you have nothing to worry about. When he isn't angry, K is curious like Malaika and often wanders around trying to sate his endless curiosity. He likes to pester people with questions and hates being ignored. He can be a bit annoying sometimes.
    Personality
    Vindictive ✖ Curious ✖ Protective ✖ Sensitive ✖ Impulsive ✖ Wallflower ✖ Blunt
    Appearance
    Malaika is a tall girl standing at 5'10" and weighing 150 lbs. She has dark brown skin, and dull brown eyes, which she covers with dark blue contacts. Her hair is always free and natural, styled in an afro and dyed a wide range of color (purple, teal, yellow and medium shade green). She has a bit of muscle on her from working out all the time.
    Malaika tends to wear dark colors with various patterns along with dark skinny jeans and either boots or converse. She always wears a chain necklace with an animal skill charm on it, she also wears non prescription teashades.

    Ability/Talent
    Sleight of Hand - By using misdirection and her general wallflower persona, Malaika can easily 'borrow' various objects that catch her eye. She'll always replace the object with something of hers though. Usually a 'sorry!' note or an origami animal.
    History (opt.)
    ✖ Abandoned at four months by the aunt of her unwed mother.
    ✖ Adopted by young couple two days after abandonment.
    ✖ Young couple perish in house fire
    ✖ Developed attachment disorder and was unable to be adopted again
    ✖ Sent to multiple corrupt psychologists who simply wanted fame for 'curing' her disorder
    ✖ Remained in the system until age sixteen where she got an emancipation and was enrolled in Larkcliff Academy

    Other information
    She has a sleep disorder in which she experiences night terrors and hums in her sleep.
