      The land of Erstiria is, at first glance, a pleasant place to live, from the sprawling megacities to the quaint little villages that dot it's beautiful landscape. Every rose may have it's thorns and bad things still happen to good people, but being in a large era of peace, the everyday citizens are under the impression that things are more well off in today's age than it ever has been before.

      Although the entire continent is under the control of Queen Frieda as part of the Erstirian Monarchy, the cities themselves are often treated more like city-states under their own commands and freedoms, the Queen more like a figurehead from their long begotten history of conquering on a global stage.

      They know of ancient legends of dark beings who were the only ones who could threaten their might. However, as the saying goes, the Erstirian military pushed them far from their lands and destroyed the darkness once and for all, uniting the human race in triumph and glory. Whether these were truths, embellishments, or simple fairytales were up for debate, but the source of these tales still remains in their night sky. Their moon appears to be a jagged purple sphere of crystal; enough energy radiating downward to cast a purple hue on the world from which one could just make out the words of a book. It's said to hold untold evils trapped within it's massive form and is sending down the dark beings to rain ruin on mankind in order to get revenge, or perhaps, find out a way to free their master. Whatever the legends say, most people think that they're no threat to humanity now. However, lunar storms are occurring more and more frequently, like solar storms but radiating from the crystal. Is it a sign of things to come or just a harmless phenomenon?

      Hidden from sight in this world exists a secret war still raging with these dark beings called the Luna, who aren't given a name by the general populace. In opposition to them are magical girls who are officially called Magia. Magia are often females born with a special light within them that can come out in the form of magic that can destroy Luna where all other mundane weapons fail. Weapons can also be crafted out of Magia's Light to be wielded by normal individuals, but only Magia tend to be powerful enough to put up a good fight regardless. Some people can develop a Magia's Light inside of them rather than be born with it, and this could also include males in very rare circumstances.

      Distortions known as Lunar Planes open up all around the world and it's up to Magia, who can sense this distortion, to visit them and destroy any Luna inside who are trying to break free into the human world. If a Lunar Plane is allowed to develop large enough and open up then the world would be flooded with them and throw everything into chaos much like how things were in the ancient past. At the moment everything is under well enough control despite some losses faced by magical girls and their allies from time to time. As such, the incidents are small enough to cover up by the government and magical powers working together. Unfortunately, things are looking more and more grave with each passing day and they fear that this era of peace may soon come to an end.

      There's secret plans to use Lunar Planes to begin a counterattack on the moon, but the logistics of this occurring is mind blowing and insanely risky, so as of yet there's no known way to cut them off at the source. As such, the best they can do right now is recruit more magical girls and train an elite team who may one day change the fate that is looming over their heads.

      Magia, Luna, and Magi Wielders

      Magical powers that these Magia and Luna employ are vast and become incredibly powerful, although a single individual is often limited to one type of magic such as fire. Some Luna are practically canon fodder while others are so dangerous that they require a full team of elite magical girls to take down. Ranks E, D, C, B, A, and S are used for both sides as a loose way to judge power, with S being potentially capable of wiping out a city and are very rare. E ranks are only as powerful as normal humans, or perhaps even worse. D ranks could defeat around 10 humans. C could take on 50. B is the first of the "elite" and could take on 200, while A can be compared to as many as 500. The cream of the crop, S, is compared to 1,000 humans, making them 100 times more powerful than D ranks. However, this ranking is not down like a science and highly open for debate.

      Luna come in many different shapes and sizes, mostly monstrous but some look mostly human and can even have human-like intelligence despite most Magia not even aware of this fact, thinking them akin to mindless beasts intent only on destruction. Some of the smarter Luna have escaped the Lunar Planes on their own and try to blend in with humans for spying or otherwise.

      Magia can transform by shrouding themselves in sparkling light, which coalesces into a suit and sometimes a weapon such as a wand or sword being the most common. Their suits often look very feminine and frilly but also incorporate a bit of their personality into it to change it slightly to even drastically from the generic version. Magical girls in their basic transformation are often D rank in power to start out. This basic suit is called Suit Level 1. It's possible to achieve an additional transformation called Suit Level 2 that makes them even more powerful, but this requires a lot of experience and raw power, not something a magical girl could even use for at least a year unless she was a prodigy. There's no known limit to Suit Levels, but each one is around twice as powerful as the last while requiring twice as much energy just to maintain, making it impractical to go too high. There are also Legendary Suit Levels that are unique to the individual and don't go by this power scheme or energy maintenance, instead being more up to the individual suit what it's like.

      Transformations don't always work out, especially if they don't properly focus. Some prefer to dance while it's taking place in order to keep their mind clear from outside distractions. The transformation would last an average of six seconds but some can limit the time to a near instantaneous flash of light if they're especially gifted. If it lasts over twenty seconds then the odds of success fail rapidly and the light eventually disperses, wasting their energy. It's nearly impossible to see through the light of a transformation if done properly, preserving the modesty of the girl in question when her old clothes vanish in exchange for her new attire. The normal clothes automatically appear again once the transformation ends willingly or unwillingly (through lack of control over it, unconsciousness, etc.) without needing any additional energy.

      Magia's Light seldom lasts when cast outside of the body unless the Magia focuses on it. However, certain magical girl have a special power that allows their light to be forged into weapons to be used by others in a far more permanent state. They can create anything from swords to bullets. This power is very rare and most of them are employed by the government to equip certain elite individuals. These individuals are called Magi Wielders. Because most Magia by far are female, if men also want to participate then they resort to this method, but they are still not very common due to the cost in time and energy to equip a Magi Wielder.


      Magical Team Starlight is formed in an effort to help combat the Luna threat as part of a secret organization based in a massive city known as Neo Vetrice. However, through luck and whit, Luna were able to infiltrate their ranks and are attempting to destroy it from the inside. These two Luna, a humanoid and her tiny monster companion, up against a large team. Odds are against them, but they have a cunning and secrecy that's not to be underestimated. The girls are Starlight are in for far more than they bargained for...
    • 1. This is for me and WeepingLiberty. There's another roleplay for magical girls that could start up but I'm kind of busy right now to do another one so that one is on hold.

      Reminder rules carried over from the other thread:

      2. You cannot do anything to other people's characters without their permission such as killing or controlling them.

      3. Don't keep the other person waiting more than a week on a post. You can ask, with good reason, for extensions from time to time.

      4. Posts should be at least a decent paragraph and readable. Some shorter posts and typos on occasion is fine but we should be able to see effort in what you are writing.

      5. No rules that break other Iwaku rules and obvious stuff such as be polite.

      6. I can come up with additional rules as the need arises but will be fair. If you guys agree that a rule of mine stinks then I will not resist changing it.

  1. Name- Akemi Hisakawa
    Age- 15
    Gender- Female
    Type- Magia
    Picture (open)

    She looks mature for her age, such as her bust, hairstyle, and clothing. She's also 5'7", a respectable size for a Japanese girl, so she might be mistaken for an 18 year old if she plays her cards right.

    Transformation Appearances-
    Suit Level 1 (open)

    Powers- Magnetism, but to a limited degree. Focusing on small or medium sized objects within talking distance can turn items magnetic even if they wouldn't normally be so, but the effects wear off if she doesn't continually provide magical energy for this. Living beings must be physically touched to turn magnetic while all other things would become magnetic faster but not required. If an object is metal then it's quick to turn magnetic and looses this power much slower than other items, especially living matter which looses magnetism almost instantly upon removal of her energy.

    Making her power become strong enough to stick people firmly to the floor with little chance of moving would cause massive strain to achieve for extended periods of time. She can fire very weak rail gun-like bullets, enough to bruise people. Despite being intelligent, she's horrible with names so doesn't have anything official thought up yet for her various attacks. She might blurt out something new to see if it sounds cool.

    Weapons- She prefers making objects around her vicinity into weapons. However, she's experienced in fencing so has a foil and the far more deadly rapier in her possession that she can bring with her on missions when she wouldn't stand out carrying it around with her.

    Backstory- She doesn't have a tragic back story why she became a magical girl. She was always gifted in intellect and had a wealthy enough family to get by comfortably. With things coming easy to her she became to inevitably get bored. This began to change the more she read about the legends of the secret wars going on between magical girls and evil monsters. Around the time she got especially interested in this she began to notice strange things happening to her. Even without being transformed, hints of her power expressed itself by small objects mysteriously clinging to her body. One day she even though she sensed a strange distortion in reality nearby, instinctively, and witnessed a bunch of girls rushing by, only to be out of sight when Akemi peeked into the alleyway that they had gone into.

    Despite her duties of class president and fencing club member, she formed another club to study magical girls and other confidential subjects relating to them. People thought of her club just like any old occult club, only she was deathly serious about her claims that magical girls existed and she could be one.

    One day, a plain faced balding man in a black top hat approached her club and asked her a couple of questions, ran some simple tests, and then popped the following question.

    "Would you like to become a magical girl?"

    To the surprise of no one, Akemi said yes. She didn't necessarily care for the world at large or even other magical girls. This was more of a fascinating diversion for her own enjoyment. Magical girls interested her and she studied them just like any other subject while improving her own abilities. Despite being new to her powers and transformation, she shows a lot of promise, even if at the moment she has to rely mostly on outsmarting her foes to take them down rather than with raw power.
  2. ((Wow, was this really Thursday? I'm starting to lose track of time >X< ))

    {Perhaps a completed CS will spark some creativity.}

    Name- Lithia Devonshire
    Age- Appears 15 (Actual Age Unknown)
    Gender- Female
    Type- Luna

    Standing at 5’5” Thia is built on an average but fit frame, modest in curves but sharp in facial features. She has pale, milky white skin that gives her a ghostly appearance in the dark, emphasized by the dark circles under her slate grey eyes. Groomed with care, Thia takes good care of her jet black hair, leaving it at a length that reaches the small of her back even when pulled up by a tie. Most of the time she wears dark but bold colors with a preference for flowing maroon fabrics.

    Transformation Appearances-
    In order to blend in with the Magia girls, Thia allows some of her natural appearance shine through as her “transformation”. This includes pure white hair, untainted by the purple moonlight, and tribal tattoos around her biceps and down the center of her torso. Her outfit consists of form hugging fabrics of varying shades of blue, representing the frosty nature of her magic. She wears a blindfold to shield her eyes from view, the demonic appearance being a dead give-away to her true identity.

    If Thia were to lose control or use the full extent of her power, her façade would give way to a demoness complete with fangs, horns and talons (though her overall image is that of a human’s).

    General Ice Magic:
    Temperature Manipulation: With settings of cold, colder and ice age (not really)
    Manipulation of air currents by changing the temperatures of nearby micro-climates.
    Ice Wings: A trick Thia uses only in full Luna state, she thinks it make her look more menacing.

    (D-Ranked Ice Magic):
    Frozen Mist: Thia uses this to refract light around her to give the illusion of a Magia’s transformation. Could also be used to disorient foes, showing them images of object not really there.
    Ice Weapon: Taking the form of a spear, sword or scythe, Thia can create weapons from condensed water particles. Not affected by normal fire but ineffective against fire magic.
    Winter Shield: A wintery mix of snow and ice whipped together to create a malleable barrier between the castor and projectile (including magic). Physical attacks (charges/weapons) will phase right through the shield.

    (C-Ranked Ice Magic):
    Snow Globe Prison: A cell that can takes on the form of a winter snow globe (thick ice instead of glass), capable of trapping up to 45 people. Ineffective if used on a group smaller than 20 people.
    Ice Tendrils: Manipulating frozen water particles into tentacle or vine like shapes, can be used offensively or defensively.

    (B-Ranked Ice Magic): Luna Only
    Ice Bomb: Covering a 5m radius, this magic will freeze all in its path living creature or building alike.
    Winter Soldiers: Summons a force of animated ice creatures that will respond to none but their creator.

    If not using magic, Thia will fall back upon a long, leather whip or two small daggers she keeps in her sleeves.

    Unlike the commonly seen beasts, Lithia is a child of the moon blessed with a form of higher intelligence. However, with this intelligence came a desire for chaos, not only to cause but to be amongst it. This drove her to travel from the Lunar Planes to the human realm, attacking small villages beside the monsters of her homeland. For a while this appeased Thia, but eventually, as time went on, she grew bored and with that… restless. Needing a new challenge, Thia thought it would be interesting to blend in with the Magia fighting against her kin, the idea coming to her after she watched a small band of them defeat a much stronger foe.

    Developing a plan, Thia changed her image with magic and began to study the warriors. After a few years, Thia figured out a way to mimic the transformations that set them apart from the regular humans. From amongst “Team 99” Thia plans to slowly pick off the Magia kind so that she herself may become more powerful (exactly how she plans to do that… is still yet a mystery).

    Name- Nietzsche (Nee-cha) Leo
    Age- 16
    Gender- Male
    Type- Magi Wielder

    This young man stands at a height of 6'2", a little tall for his age but over all healthy. He appears rather skinny, but despite his lean frame, Nietzsche is incredibly fit. Both his eyes and his hair take on a dark, almost black look that seem to absorb any light that touches them. Sticking with the dark theme, one can usually find him wearing dark colors for all of his clothing, which is ironic considering his usually kind and caring personality.

    Weapon based Electrokinesis

    Wired Daggers:
    Part of his belt, Nietzsche's weapon of choice is a set of triangular blades attached to metal wires. Infused with Magi light, these weapons conduct electricity based upon their wielder's will (this is done through electrical impulses in the body known as thought).

    Rarely used, but in times when he cannot access his weapon/weapon fails to respond, Nietzsche carries around a handgun for protection. While most often it cannot hurt or even damage a magical target, the simple act of shielding oneself from the weapon gives the boy enough time to get away.

    Nietzsche grew up in a small town, whose name has long since been forgotten. Being the older of two children, he was his sister's caretaker while their parents worked. The area had always had a creepy air about it, rumors of being haunted by phantoms that nobody took seriously... That was until the phantoms decided to attack. A seemingly unprovoked attack by the Luna ended up destroying the village, Nietzsche loosing everything he knew as he and his sister took shelter in a hidden room beneath their house.

    Days after the attack, the Leo siblings emerged from the darkness to make their way to a larger city where their aunt and uncle lived. Along the way Nietzsche and his sister were attacked by Luna who had stayed behind after the attack. It was then that he witnessed the power of the Magia and Magi Wielders, inspired and determined to obtain the power to defend his sister with his own two hands.

  3. Name- Gruddur
    Age- 4
    Gender- Thought of as male
    Type- Luna

    Appearance- He's normally about the size and appearance of a mouse. However, he's very cute and fluffy from head to tail. His fur is naturally white but he can change the color at will, or if his emotions get the better of him then it automatically changes to expected colors such as red for anger. The fur also stands on end and rattles back and forth (his mouth imitating the rattling noise) when angry or frightened, looking even more fluffy than usual. His eyes are golden colored without whites of the eye.

    Powers- His power is changing in size. He can become as small as an ant, which he often uses for stealth, or as large as an elephant, although the largest size taxes his strength the most so he often uses it as a trump card for less then a minute at a time. The largest size that he can comfortably be is like a large dog. He can become similar to a python where his tail can increase in length to constrict opponents and he can also open his jaws up unnaturally wide to swallow child (magical girl) sized targets whole. He can also absorb some of their magical energy upon digestion. While devouring if he gets the chance is a one hit kill should it succeed, his normal attacks with his claws and teeth are weaker, but could still pierce magical shields given enough time or if his opponent is only average or worse, then he could fight them fair and square and come out victorious.

    His defense is the same no matter the size but he can get knocked back far more if he's smaller, causing more damage upon impact. His attack is similarly the same but in a larger or smaller area so it always helps to get bigger unless it makes him a bigger target or exhausts him too much.
    Weapons- Nothing besides his body.

    Backstory- He is a rather young Luna and not ready for solo missions quite yet. As such he was recently assigned a caretaker, Lithia, to help guide him on their quest to destroy the magia. His potential power is vast even if he cannot apply it very well at the moment, being a mere child in their eyes. For the most part he has decided that he will be loyal to Lithia and do what she says, even if he can be a tad rebellious at times and wanders off if something curious strikes his fancy.

  4. Still planning on your male magia? Or are we leaning more towards team Luna being the focus?
  5. Still debating. I think I might make one, I just need the right inspiration for the character.
  6. I have found inspiration... But one question. Magi Wielders don't have any sort of transformation right? I know they wouldn't have full suit transformation, but do they have little changes... Or is it 100% weapon based for the guys?
  7. Weapon based but they could maybe put armor on to help them defend against magic. No transformation.
  8. Alright, I edited his CS in below Thia's.
  9. I didn't specify which weekend, so let's assume I meant I'd post my Luna this weekend. lol
    • Love Love x 1
  10. Careful, you're starting to sound like me. XD
  11. Hopefully our characters don't sound like that.

    "Time to defeat the Luna once and for all!...but of course I need to play this new game I got first."
    *The world blows up while she's playing
  12. I edited my new character in the post right below yours.

  13. Looks good. So how should we start?
  14. That's what I was wondering but don't know the answer yet. Maybe the Luna kicking off their secret plan? Perhaps with an exciting battle.
  15. Well, we could start with an allusion to the death of a Magical Girl... Then flash over to a mission debrief or something similar?
  16. Could start tomorrow if I get around to it. Battlefront 3 is having double experience weekend.

  17. Maybe, just maybe, will post later today. Send wishful luck my way and I may be able to pull it off! I'm trying to get a sci-fi setting situated for different roleplays.
  18. That's fine by me. I'll be here whenever you get around to it.
