  1. Kōun
    [​IMG]
    The city of Kōun has stood here for fifty long years, modernizing as time went on, and growing constantly. It's a bustling city with small cars and large buildings. Though strangely enough, only 1/4th of the population lives here. Most of them live in a small, less crowded town by the name of Kisaragi. They aren't that far apart and are connected by a small bridge that can rise and lower itself. Despite this, most of the town relies on Kōun for employment.

    The town does have it's own businesses, shops, and restaurants. They are home to the only school between them and the city, New Heights Academy. It's the largest building in the town, standing at four stories high and is one of the most prestigious schools in the entire country.

    New Heights Academy
    [​IMG]
    The school itself is a product of the U.K and Japan both deciding to create a school that would teach the culture and the language of both the countries. Japanese students would learn about the English culture and their language, while the English students would learn about the Japanese culture and their language. Though they would still be taught other subjects like Math, Science, and History. What's most interesting about the school is how it goes all the way from kindergarten to high school, this is to promote an easygoing environment where the students would never be separated from their friends and the amount of stress and depression would stay at a low level.

    Uniforms
    Boy Uniform (open)
    [​IMG]
    Girl Uniform (open)
    [​IMG]
    The insignia on the shoulder of the student's uniforms is a pure white shield with the red dot from the Japanese flag placed in the middle, while wings that resemble those of a dove sprout from it's sides. Over it is a broadsword and a katana clashing.

    Technology
    [​IMG]
    The year is 2018 and technology is getting more advanced as time goes on, even as much that virtual reality has been created. The World is a massively multiplayer online game in a Fantasy world where they fight monsters and explore new areas by using sword and shield, magic, or even a bow and arrow. The developers say there's still much more for the players to explore in the world they've created, and far more to come.

    Name: Cho Mori
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality:Bisexual
    Height: 5'5
    Weight: 115
    Personality: She's always been a silent character, and doesn't speak too often, only when she finds it necessary. She's very sweet and kind and usually has a small smile on her face. However, she's never had many friends due to the fact she doesn't usually open up to others. She's also very studious and knowledgeable.
    Short bio: Cho was originally from Kisaragi, having lived there for most her life. However, towards the end of middle school her family moved to Kōun to get closer to the rest of her family and to get into more of the city scene. She was sad to leave her home and friends. She didn't like the city all the much, due to it being so crowded and busy. But at least she'd be closer to family. Not that she wasn't already close to them. But hey, beggars can't be choosers.
    Cho is generally found around school with her nose stuffed in a book, either doing school work, writing something, or reading. Outside of school she doesn't do much different. And more often then not, you can find her anywhere with a peaceful setting, like the local park. There, she'll generally be practicing meditation or yoga, but you can also find her on the fountain reading or writing. She's always been the silent type, and not at all because she is shy. She's definitely not afraid to speak her mind or anything like that when she needs to. But if you haven't already got it, she generally prefers silence over sound.
    She's always had the best grades in any of her classes and is usually the best student of her class. She's never had anything lower than a B and she's also a very organized. She known throught school as either "That quiet girl" or as "That really smart girl". Either way she's pretty known throughout campus.
    Grade: Junior​

  3. Appearance:

    [​IMG]

    Name:
    Emiko West

    Age:
    16

    Gender:
    Female

    Sexuality:
    Heterosexual

    Height:
    5'4"

    Weight:
    99

    Weight/Height may seem a little small/unnatural but she is training to be a dancer and she does dance on Pointe. To become a professional ballerina/dancer, especially in Japanese culture, a girl needs to be small.

    Personality:
    Emiko isn't shy but she isn't loud. She's not an introvert and she's not an extrovert. Honestly, she doesn't know herself very well. Emiko finds it easy to talk to many different people and will start a conversation with you at random. She has a short fuse though and is quick to anger, especially around topics that she strongly believes in. Like vegetarianism, since she is one. Emiko finds herself talking to much and will often shut herself up, reprimanding herself for allowing herself to talk. She tries to live by the motto, "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt." She fears that people think she's to outgoing or to boisterous and so often she will recline into a shell and only talk when she has something important to say. This shell doesn't last long though, especially around people she loves and enjoys. All around, Emiko is just a self conscience girl with a lot of quirks. She thinks a lot about the bigger meaning of life and events in her life, including the really small things.

    Short bio:
    Emiko was born in the UK to two English parents who studied culture and loved to travel. They were always fascinated by the Japanese culture so were quick to give Emiko an Japanese name. Especially since they knew one day they wanted to live in Japan.

    Emiko's parents got a divorce before her Freshman year of high school. They often were at ends and it was nobody's fault. Nobody had an affair or was abusive. It was a mutual understanding of not really loving each other anymore. Seeing her parents fall out of love was probably the hardest thing Emiko has ever had to go through.


    But she found her solace in her dancing. Emiko has always been a dancer, always twirling around and laughing. She found herself fascinated by every type of dance but mostly contemporary and ballet. Her father never approved of dance, hoping Emiko would follow in his path and become a successful architect and take over the family business. Emiko's mother is a lot more relaxed and believes that she should follow whatever passion she has and encourages her to do what she loves. So Emiko continues to dance away and study architecture all at the same time. She finds that she really truly does love both and it keeps her close to both of her parents. Dance for her mother and architecture for her father.

    Grade:
    Sophomore

    More?:
    She currently lives with her mother in Kōun, as her mother lives in an apartment just a few blocks away from the school. Her father lives in Kisaragi though, but provides transportation to school for her. Since she lives with him every other month.

    Her favorite color is deep blue.

    Oh! And she loves the ocean! If you ever want to see a softer side of Emiko, just bring her to an ocean.

    And if you didn't catch before, Emiko is a vegetarian.

     
  4. Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Name: Suiko Nakamura
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Heterosexual
    Height: 5'1
    Weight: 100 lbs

    Personality: Innocent and light-hearted, but socially awkward Suiko "goes with the flow" as her name means water-child. She can be naive but never takes anything rude to heart, because she believes in the good of people. Other than that, she is fashionable, loves to swim and is very clumsy. People consider her to be very "moe" but she never brands herself that way. While she plays games, she can get somewhat violent and aggressive, unlike her usual self, she is very competitive and strives to win both tactically and physically.

    Background: Suiko was born and raised in Kōun, with a family that runs the local grocery store that she also has to help with after-school. She remembered the school being built, and dreamed of going there one day. Now that she's attending New Heights, she's doing more than ever. Between helping with the store, the swim team, and studying--she also spares whatever time she has left on abandoned dogs/animals, either tending to them or helping them find appropriate new homes. The young girl has trouble trying to not stumble over her own words, much less learn how not to be nervous around new people. Her next goal is to try and make actual friends that don't just like her because she's "moe" or because she's in the running to become the next swim captain.

    Other than that Suiko truly has fun learning, and is trying to find her favorite subject at the moment, making her even more excited to be in a school like New Heights.

    Grade: Junior

    Extra: She is on the swim team, loves sweets and boba tea, gaming and cosplay when she has the time.

  6. Appearance: Mordecai.(Regular.Show).240.1360378.jpg
    Name: Asena Mondo
    Age: 16
    Gender: male
    Sexuality: bisexual
    Height: 5'7
    Weight: 137 lbs.
    Personality: Quiet yet kind to others, he acts like an older brother towards Misaki, especially since her's went to study in America. He can easily get jealous over little things, but tries to hide it. He can sleep almost anywhere. Almost. He has a love of spicy food, but isn't interested in too many sweet foods. He also has slight abandonment issues.

    Background: Asena was born into a loving family that lives in Kōun, and was an only child. He hates sugarcoating things and can be blunt sometimes. He would often get jealous over things like: his friends hanging out with others and basically "forgetting" about him. So, he'd "forget" about them and make new friends. This had went on in a continuous cycle until he met Misaki and her older brother. The three have known each other since the ages of nine and ten and have grown close ever since.
    Grade: Sophomore
    Extra: He used to play baseball and basketball his freshman year of high school but stopped due to losing interest.

    Appearance: nice-hairstyle-new-hair.jpg
    Name: Misaki Aizawa
    Age: 15
    Gender: female
    Sexuality: heterosexual
    Height: 4'11 1/2
    Weight: 117 lbs.
    Personality: She can be loud, but is willing to try and help others all the same. She has a love for jokes even though some of her own aren't that good. She loves teasing Asena by claiming that she knows he has a crush on her, just to see his reaction. She speaks her mind, and usually tell others what she truly thinks without trying to hurt anyone's feelings.

    Background: Misaki was born to a single mother that lived in Kisaragi, and had begun to meet a foreigner that visited Kisaragi around the time Misaki was six, she wasn't sure how or when they fell in love-but they did. That's how she met her step-brother, Mishka. The two didn't get along well at first, but after warning up to each other after their family moved to Kōun (then meeting Asena) they became close. She doesn't really know how the story of how her brother ended up studying in America goes; but she thinks it either had something to do with some relatives on her dad's side living there, or some academic thing.
    Grade: Sophomore
    Extra: She has a glutinous appetite, yet doesn't gain any weight...

    Height: 5'7"

    Weight: 150

    Personality:

Another reason her family moved was because she got into a fight with someone. She was beaten pretty badly and so after that her parents enrolled her into a martial arts class once they moved.

(The reason she was in the fight was to protect one of her best friend who she still keeps in touch with named Alexandra. She calls her Alex or Al. The guy was going to beat Alex to a pulp but Rain wanted to take the betting instead.)​

  8. DEZIREE Skye FROST
    --

    " I don't have time to waste on the likes of you. "

    Dez - A shortened version of her name that she seems to prefer. Her siblings call her this.
    Skye - Her middle name, used by her older brother simply because he wanted to be different.
    Frost - She insists all whom she is not close with refer to her by her last name as is custom.

    Age - Seventeen ║ Gender - Female ║ Nationality - Japanese & English ║ Birthdate - June 22nd ║

    [​IMG]
    Appearance -
    Sexuality - Pansexual ║ Height - 5'7" ║ Weight - 125lbs ║ Grade - Junior [ Eleventh Grade ] ║

    Dez stands at 5'7" tall, making her pretty average height wise amongst the English, however with the Japanese she towers above most of the ladies and some of the shorter boys. The girls figure is slim and dainty. In regards to looks, you could say she is of above average, pretty even, but her attitude towards others makes her unappealing. She holds the delicate, pale complexion value throughout Japanese culture, accompanied by thick, long silky and rather pale blonde locks that frame her face when not tied back in a pony tail out of convenience. Her eyes are deep pools, they seem almost perfectly black but dance with deep blue in the sunlight. The almond shape of her eyes gives them a sharpness, and they are complimented by thick black lashes. Her style of clothing is pretty straight forward, black tops of varying styles are common enough, band logos and skulls decorate the dark material. Dez often wears tights and shorts, along with large black combat boots that seem wore well beyond their years. Hanging around her neck there is a locket, silver in color and welded shut, she wears no other jewelry.
    Personality -

    Introverted. The girl lives within the walls she has built to hide her from humanity, books, the internet, music. They are her safe haven, the places where she is free to dream and live. Though she would like to talk to people freely she often keeps to herself, not out of shyness but simply because intelligent people are hard to find. The girl seems to hold herself on a pedestal, looking down on all others who lack the intelligence she bares. Though many throughout her school hold low opinions of her she manages to retain a great deal of pride and self-worth. She walks with her head held high, bag slung over her shoulder and dark eyes trained on the distant horizon. Though mostly quiet she's opinionated and will speak out against anything she disagrees on. She is utterly self reliant, a true lone wolf, and seems to have trust issues. When you first meet her, she will strike you as cold, unsociable and at rare times, easily angered. She's capable of feelings and love, but it takes a bit of digging to her to her soft warm side, a bit of digging is something very few want to try. The girl is a bit of a tomboy, gruff and foul-mouthed at times, there isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't use sarcasm. in one way or another.

    Biography -

    In short, she was born and raised in England for twelve years of her life, until the point that her dad got a job in the island country of Japan. The family moved and while adapting wasn't the easiest task they managed. Eventually she ended up in Kisaragi, just outside the city because the prices of housing was low. She lives there in a traditional japanese home, attending New Heights, along with her siblings. They transferred during her last year of middle school. Now mix in a handful of teenage angst, bullying along side a bit of harassment and you have the cocktail that is her life. In truth, the tolerance of the school is something she appreciates, but she's been so mentally wounded by past experiences at less kind schools with pettier children that its now a habit not to let people get close to her.
    Others -
    [ Artist & Writer ]
    "It's like being a god, of whatever world you decide to create."
    Dez has always held a skill in the arts, her acting is not shabby and her singing, though not the best, is not horrific. Though she has a good few skills none are better than her ability to write, as well as draw, though she does the latter more often. The girl uses her gifts to take her mind off of the stresses and trials of everyday life because she cannot coop with the the lot she's been given. The girl writes as an escape, she uses the characters she creates to live as she cannot, uses them to travel through a thousand worlds and life a thousand lives that would otherwise be unavailable to her.

    [ Video Games ]
    "Video Games are love. Video Games are life"
    As mentioned earlier, Dez is not a social butterfly in any way shape or form, but when playing behind a screen she certainly gains some.... vigor. The girl has more online friends than she ever will in real life, and even that group is select. The girl can appreciate most video games, but to be her favorite graphics and plot need to work together in glorious harmony. Very few do. The girl has played since she picked up a fantasy game with a green clad elf as the hero, when she was six, it became a habit and talent before graduating into a borderline obsession.

    [ Family ]
    "I used to wish I could pick my family, but they've grown on me... like a fungus"
    1 2 3 4 5
    She has five siblings. The youngest is a girl of eight, followed by a set of fourteen year old twins, the younger brother sits at sixteen while the older one is nineteen. All five have their own distinct personalities and traits that make them all equally annoying. The youngest is Rose, followed by Chrissy and Dawn, then comes Tyrion and finally Sethen. Rose is all too sweet, but is one of the most loved children, Chrissy is the true definition of a stereotypical goth, while Dawn dresses in clothing that only covers half of who --Dez believes-- should be covered. Tyrion is a cute boy with a severe case of sticky fingers and Seth is pretty much Dez, but male and with no talent in the arts. He's a natural boxer. Their father is a man who is scarcely home, he puts work before all things and their mother is not much better. Though she is home at all times, she is not the most useful, being a pile of ash within an urn will do that.

  9. (Hope this is fine.)

    Appearance:

    [​IMG]


    Name: (Last, First) Hishikawa Rokuro
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 130
    Personality: Rokuro is a passive yet intelligent individual who prefers his flute over any type of physical education. He is the type to not speak unless spoken to, which often makes others believe he is either a mute or antisocial. Though he is quiet and proper most of the time, he holds a heart of compassion towards the other students (all expect those who don't deserve it). He does not retaliate when insulted and is not one to become angry so quickly. However, Rokuro could not be totally useless. He studies the human anatomy and any pressure points that come to use. So, when push comes to shove, he will be able to defend himself somehow without the need of behaving like some animal.
    Background: Hishikawa Rokuro was born to a loving, middle class mother and father. At the age of 4, his father had died of natural causes, leaving the family in debt. With the remains of their funds, his mother put the last of her faith in the small restaurant/sweets shop she had opened before her husband passed away. Business had not been great, but that didn't stop her from cooking/baking. Though she taught her son how to cook and bake just like her, he had become her right hand man when it came to managing the finances. Eventually, the business had begun to flourish, making it rather popular amongst the city of Kōun. Rokuro drops by to help with the baking and cooking every now and then, but is either studying, playing his flute, or playing a video game when there is nothing else to do.
    Grade: Sophomore
    Extra:

    Since he has little to no special regard for physical education, he will never be found in the sports area of the Academy. Instead, he can be found in the library, the music room, or in his mother's restaurant "
    Kyūden Setsuna" after classes.

    In his mother's restaurant, after he has his hair up and is in uniform, he is often mistaken for a very tall woman from behind. This results in him being flirted with by other gentlemen, usually them not knowing that he is a guy.

    Name: Noboyuki Nakamura (First, Last)
    Age: 16
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Height: 5'2''
    Weight: 106 lbs.
    Personality: Noboyuki (Yuki to his friends) is a happy-go-lucky guy that, although made fun of by half of the school, is completely unfazed by life. He prefers to listen rather than talk in a conversation, only throwing in stuff on the side to get the other person talking again. Yuki only actually has long, engaging conversations with friends. He hates the school uniforms, preferring comfort over style. Yuki isn't a bully, and likes to get in with the nerd group. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets (though that is very unsuccessful with the "cool kids" and the football players... and the cheerleaders... and half of the school...) He isn't mad about that, though. Anger isn't on his agenda. He spends his time out of school texting, playing video games, sleeping, hanging out with friends, and drinking Fanta. But only Fanta Zero. "Why Fanta Zero?" "I am scrawny, and I'll keep it that way, thanks. Also, it's a sponsorship thing." "Wait, what?" "Nothing, nothing..." He is the chef of his household.
    Background: Noboyuki was born to a Japanese family with lots of money. At 12, when he told his parents of his sexuality, they didn't approve at all. They kicked him out of the house, leaving him with his aunt, who lived (and currently lives in) an apartment building. . His aunt accepted him for who he was, her reaction being the exact opposite of his parents'. He currently lives with her, and is actually glad that his parents kicked him out. Yuki knows that he wouldn't have made all of the friends he has if he lived with a rich family and went to a private school.
    Education: Yuki isn't as educated as most of the smarter kids, because he kinda dorks around in class. He usually is a an AB student with a C in Math and an F in physical education.
    Physical Education: "I DON'T WANT TOOOOOOO, I'M TOO LAZYYYYYYY" This is him on the couch reaching for the remote. You can imagine him during P.E.
    Grade: Sophomore
    Extra: He currently works at a sushi restaurant. I'm not too good at these, so some pointers would be awesome! Thanks!

  11. I'm sorry everyone, but I have to cancel this RP. I can't find the inspiration, or excitement to run it. I look at this idea and I can't figure out what to do with it anymore. The excitement just disappeared.
     
  12. It's alright. It happens. Though I am a bit sad about it, your choice is understandable.
