    Jack Roman - Illusion Teacher (open)

    Character Name: Jack Roman
    Gender: Male
    Orientation: Straight
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: Forty-two
    Birthplace: Foreign
    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
    General Appearance: http://bigfanboy.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/davidtennant.jpg
    Mana Nature: Sensory
    Natural Talent: Ludicrous amounts of power and the skill to use it.
    More: As the number one most powerful wizard in the world, Jack's amount of available mana is stupidly gargantuan; even by the standard of powerful wizards. However, outside of very basic spells (such as telekinesis, flight, etc.) and anything regarding standard illusions or his sensory magic is pathetically weak (e.g. the most powerful fireball he can form is about the size of a small candle flame). However, Jack's is a master of his mana, and, as such, has developed combat techniques to breach wards that would normally be impossible for him to take down otherwise.
    More: Jack's ultimate technique is one of his own creation: Perception Magic. This is the most powerful form of illusion magic in existence. It was developed by Jack using his very specific mana type and by having the massive reserves to cast it. With it, Jack can reshape the way you perceive the world around you, resulting in completely realistic, false realities. What makes this magic so powerful, however, is if Jack wishes it, it can shatter the barrier between illusion and reality of the mind in which it is used on. In short, anything that happens to you in the illusion happens to you for real. If an imaginary sword slices you into pieces, your body will suddenly find itself cut into chunks. The only escape from this magic once cast upon you is unconsciousness or death, if the caster doesn't relinquish his hold on you. His sensory mana nature also grants him complete immunity to other forms of magical and physical sensory, as well as grant his the ultimate magical radar and perception.
    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS
    Current Goal/Purpose: To be left well alone by the government, while doing some good for the world.
    Non-magical Talents: Wallball and the ability to drink a seemingly endless amount of orange juice.
    Inabilities: He can't cook whatsoever; he has to rely on his illusions to make his food seem edible.
    Fears: His inner personality.
    General Personality: Quirky, whimsical, and incredibly impulsive, Jack is the trickster teacher of Red Star Academy. He is generally laid back and tends to give off a 'screw it' attitude towards most things. However, this only applies to any time he is not teaching. In class, he is strictly professional even if he has a bit of love for being dramatic. However, Jack is never boastful about his abilities simply for the sake of gloating or the feeling of being superior. That being said, it is not wise to challenge him.
    Inner Personality: Extreme anger and utter, remorseless cruelty. This is a side of Jack that has not been seen in decades; kept under such tight control, not even Jack himself remembers the general feeling. He does remember the effects. They haunt him to this day.
    Secret: His loneliness. Jack has virtually no true friends — something tht has resulted in him to practice summoning magic in in secret.
    HISTORIC BACKGROUND
    General History: Not much is known about Jack's past, even to his fellow teachers. The headmaster knows a bit more, but not by much. Jack prefers it this way, because he finds such things woefully irrelevant. Whenever he is asked such things, like how he got his immense amount of power, his usual answer is to play lots of wall-ball and eat crap loads of meat.
    Jack was the illusion teacher at the fortress of Sanctuary. Jack's name was a legend throughout the school. Not a good legend, sadly. Jack was known as the school prankster and general annoyance. This is because the subject he teaches is generally disliked and hated by all, and, as such, his subject has so few practitioners that he only had to teach two classes a week. Because of this, he had a lot of free time. He used said time either hanging about the rooms of other teachers as they go about their job and occasionally heckling or helping them, depending on his mood and the situation at hand, or enjoying a game of wall-ball on the school grounds. When not doing either, he could usually be found in his office. No one knows exactly what he did in there, as whenever they entered the place, it looked completely empty. It was unsure by all if this is because he cast a spell around the place, or it is truly empty.
    As for Jack's actual teaching, he was exceptionally good at his job. This is one of the reasons why he rarely ever got thrown out of the classrooms in which he frequented. Jack has a knack for helping people understand any subjects they are having trouble with. This is partly because he seems to have knowledge of virtually every subject of magic, and partly because of the way he teaches lessons and gives examples. Jack was also highly regarded as the best sparing partner in the school.
    Present Life: Currently, given the lack of non-criminal practitioners of illusion magic, Jack was quickly found a new job to teach the subject at Red Star Academy. Much to his surprise, a familiar face greeted him upon his settling in: Sky, a graduated student of Sanctuary. Jack got to know the young woman quite well from the large amount of extra-curricular excursions she took on during her training in which he accompanied her for protection.

    Appearance
    Brief History: Evangeline grew up in a magic school and prizes the experience dearly.

She’s since retired and, instead, began to teach at several magic schools, occasionally moving. She’s been to two schools before moving to RSA.

    Inner Personality: Indomitable, proud, and kind. Miki has struggled against a condition which turns most into stay-at-home introverts because she has a love of everyone around her. Miki wants to have a deep trust with her friends, and would do anything to ensure their safety and happiness.

    Dear Potential Incoming Student,
    We here at Red Star Academy gladly extend to you an invitation to enroll at our school regardless of race, gender, or heritage. Here you can learn all kinds of magic, ranging from the basics, to the most advanced applications of magic, alongside the magical scenery surrounding the school. We have a large staff of very capable teachers sharing the dream of a world where anyone can use magic.
    Should you enroll, you will first need to come to our gates, and follow our helpful staff to the auditorium. There we will assign all the students to their homeroom teachers, who will also serve as your fundamentals of magic instructor. In this class you will learn to increase control of your own mana, as well as receive various need to know information for all wizards such as: forbidden magics, great wizards of the past, laws concerning magic use, and much more.
    After a week of basic studies, you will be allowed to take elective studies, to further extend your focus into the many fields of study. Our curriculum is quite vast, so we trust that you will be able to find a class for just about anything that you could need. All of the teachers are able to help you for an hour before class starts, regardless of if you have them as a teacher.
    Lunch is provided on campus in the cafeteria located right in the middle of the school. Lunch begins at noon, and lasts an hour and a half. During this time students may roam about the campus, but are not permitted to leave except by obtaining special permission. Also the training fields located at the west side of the school are allowed for use during lunch, provided that you have an instructor's supervision.
    The main office is located just a bit north of the lunch area, and contains the headmaster's office. The main office has a wealth of information about the school, and deals with all discipline problems as well as legal concerns. You should come here if you have trouble locating things within the school, or if sent here from another source. All permission forms to leave the campus should be taken up here.
    All students will be roomed in dorms with a roommate. Students caught outside of dorms between 11 and 4 without permission or a teacher will have disciplinary action taken upon them. Student dorms will be provided with different amenities depending on the classes each student is taking, and may be moved to other rooms should there be insufficient funds to provide students with their own equipment. All rooms however, will contain two beds, a small fridge, two desks, and a closet.
    We hope that you will be able to attend.
    Sincerely
    Gabriel Scar- Headmaster of Red Star Academy

    Global Setting (open)
    This will discuss important general knowledge facts about the setting of TAoM.
    TAoM is a world that modernized early by relying on magic. Most devices, jobs, and modes of transportation all use magic. The reliance on magic is so heavy that the population is limited based on the number of people that can be educated. As such, magic schools are at the center of all growth, usually with large stretches of wilderness in between.
    Another symptom of this rapid modernization is the lingering stigma. The first magic users, the Magi (pronounced Ma-ji), were highly regarded and started the process to the progress of developing magic and schooling a new generation of magic users. As such, some of the 3/4ths of the population now distantly descended from the Magi believe themselves to be superior to the remaining 1/4th, despite having no evidence to suggest such. Several schools even segregate, or decline to teach mages with no connection to the Magi.
    The world of TAoM has only one country, but two independent governments. The magic counsel is in charge of bringing order to magic, holding forbidden tombs, financially supporting the arts, and many hidden agendas. The governing body is in charge of prosecuting criminals, writing law, and many of the functions we associate with our governments. These two branches are notorious for batting heads and maneuvering to circumvent the other’s powers. Though it often seems a losing battle for the government due to many of the strongest mages holding power in the magic counsel.

    Basics of Magic (open)
    This will discuss the most fundamental workings of magic.
    Please request information from Luna for more detailed accounts of particular uses of magic.
    Mana (open)
    Mana is the energy generated from all things which can be used to cast spells. Using mana consumes a mage’s durability, and drains their mana pool. Spellcasters must be wary of how much mana they have left, for if they ever completely run out, they will perish.

    Mana Nature (open)
    Each mage is born with the affinity for a specific kind of magic. This determines which spells a mage can cast without using extra energy to convert their mana to a different type. A mage’s mana nature does not change, and will remain constant throughout their life. In addition, mana natures are restricted to non-abstract nouns.

    Wards (open)
    The ward is a magical barrier that prevents you from being the target of spells. Any magic that hits the ward is dispersed, and causes the ward to lose durability. If a ward breaks, mages have no other means of protecting themselves from magic, and their bodies are subject to being targeted by magic spells. It takes an uninterrupted hour to generate a ward.

    Magical Combat (open)
    Without a ward, a mage can be targeted directly. That means that spells can afflict the mage directly. For example, an unwarded mage could immediately be set on fire without a fire projectile being flung at them. A warded mage, however, can only be physically harmed after their ward is destroyed. Wards are destroyed by being overpowered or rammed repeatedly with magic until they break.

    Rules & Guidelines (open)
    Rules
    1. Posting is a team effort.

    2. You are permitted to have one player character.

    3. If you don't know something, ask.

    4. Make sure you get all magic items, NPCs, and visitable locations approved before you introduce them.

    5. This roleplay has a specific round system, so you are allowed to post once per round and that post must cover all events that happened within a specified time period.

    6. Use common sense, you guys are too smart for me to clutter the rules with things that should be obvious.

    7. Get a google account so that you can use the google drive. It is invaluable to making cooperative posts.


    Guidelines
    1. Do everything early. Other people need time to work with you. If you finish at the last second, that is great for you, but it leaves others no time to work with you.

    2. Discuss everything, get excited. Most of the fun of slice of life is interacting with others and getting excited over the plot.

    3. Meet deadlines consistently.

    Meeting deadlines is the best way to show your enthusiasm for the RP. If you aren't meeting them, then it makes me think you are potentially not prioritizing your fellow RPers or this RP highly enough. Life sometimes gets in the way and, while I'm always willing to accommodate, I recommend doing what you can. A small post or hastily made post is far better than nothing.

    4. Be social. I want you to enjoy your time here. Part of that is getting to know the other players.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Kaminari Kuigi was born as the first child of three in the family, and had to look after his younger siblings once they were born. Kaminari was quiet, but also happy and was kind to those who needed help. Although the family had their differences and issues, often leading the parents to become stressed and argue, much to their kids fear. The father ended up leaving home, leaving the mother to raise the three kids alone, so Kaminari was the one who helped out his mother the most of the three, quickly having to adapt to responsibility early in his life. School was adding onto troubles as well, the two younger siblings often got into trouble, leaving Kaminari to help them out and often getting in the way of other kids bullying on them. Around the time of middle school, Kaminari was taking his younger sister home when a man threatened to harm them. Kaminari pushes his sister out of the way, taking a terrible hit for her, which left him hospitalized for a few months. Once released and sent back home, Kaminari started to change and started to put on a facade just for his family. But once returning to school, the attention he got was overwhelming, and by the start of high school, others saw a chance to push him around. This forced Kaminari to put on his facade for everyone, while inside, he hid in darkness, angry at the world for how it had treated him and his family.

    Present Life: High school ended just as quickly as it had began, and life was returning to normal for his family. His mother was finally able to have some rest, his younger brother and sister were in high school and taking care of themselves, and Kaminari was free. He knew his father was descended from the Magi, but his mother had not, and Kaminari always saw the two governments as two powers struggling for control when they could just combine and learn to cooperate with one another. He also saw people relying so much on magic, that he has often tried to do things in his life without the use of magic, trying to live sort of in-between both the non-magical and the magical. One day, Kaminari gets a letter from Red Star Academy, and was happy to have been selected to enroll in it, seeing a chance to better himself within it. With the help of his siblings and mother, Kaminari heads off for Red Star Academy, starting a new life and a new academy.

    Mana Nature: Star

    Natural Talent: Endurance


    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS


    Current Goal/Purpose:
    Laika wants to become a professional performer.

    Non-magical Talents: Laika is good at dancing, fencing, and running.

    Inabilities: Laika is bad at studying, can be a bit awkward, and often acts before thinking.

    Fears: Laika is scared of hurting people unintentionally, being unwanted, and forgetting important information.

    General Personality: Laika is incredibly outgoing and likes being the center of attention. She isn't afraid of failure, and is quick to laugh off her mistakes. She is straightforward, so much so that it is almost tactless. Even still Laika has an infectiously friendly personality, and you are never quite sure how she will express it.

    Inner Personality: Laika has a fragile side. She understands that she has faults, particularly when it comes to dealing with sensitive situations and schoolwork. Occasionally she beats herself up over her inabilities, and needs someone to help her reframe.

    Secret: Laika has never seen her parents, and she was never adopted. She created a fake identity, with help from an individual, to avoid the shame, and could be expelled for providing false enrollment information. Laika's last name is actually just her boss’s middle name.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND


    General History:
    Laika has lived at an orphanage for as long as she can remember. She also has avoided being in the orphanage for as long as she can remember. Laika spent most of her time growing up either in school, using the school's facilities, or going to the cafe located on the way home. The man who ran the café, Sanji was very good to Laika. The cafe wasn't the most successful in town, but it had a number of regulars, and brought in enough business to stay afloat. Since there was a lot of downtime, Sanji spent a lot of time with Laika. In particular, he listened to how her day went, gave her advice, fed her, and drove her back to the orphanage when the café closed. Laika herself was a draw for customers, as she was very personable, and sometimes helped around the kitchen. She would always tell Sanji how one day, she’d be super famous, and preform at the café so he’d have so much business that he’d have to take reservations. When she was 16, she actually got to work at the café. She loved every moment she spent at the café. The place was practically a home away from home for her.


    At school however, it leaked that Laika was an orphan, and a particularly cruel bully tormented her for it. After a while, Laika grew sick with her life. It drove her to do something daring, that before seemed too selfish and exposing for even her. Just five months after working at the café, she asked Sanji to adopt her. Sanji responded, “I can’t.” After further exploring, it turns out Sanji divorced, and her orphanage has a policy which therefore prevents him from taking custody of her. He explained that he had actually applied to adopt her years ago, and never had the heart to tell her. Laika took it hard, but kept her job and stayed in contact with Sanji. Although he never got custody of Laika, he remained in her life: going to all her sporting events, paying for her fencing and dancing lessons, feeding her, and numerous other things. Laika loves him dearly to this day.

    Present Life: Laika just graduated high school, and is now happily leaving the orphanage. She can’t wait to learn magic, though her departure with Sanji was bittersweet. Since she didn’t have proof of heritage, she couldn’t prove if she was descended from the Magi, and since it is listed as a required field on most magic schools(worth attending anyway), she was very relieved to learn of Red Star through the letter they sent. Laika is now traveling to Red Star academy via plane, and anxiously awaits arrival.

  13. As of today, I'm attending college, so you likely won't see me on midday anymore. I'm looking forward to seeing more characters and can't wait to begin auditioning.

    Thundor, thanks for being patient, you are soon going to have your audition with i3flames. He has university like me, but I just wanted you to know you are on his radar.
     
  14. I got Google Drive and started experimenting around while making my character sheet, so I'll share with you the link to my character, Dax. I have it set so that anyone with the link can view it, hopefully :)

  18. You should still submit them here, but have a google drive up, and post a link so other players have the opportunity to help out or just watch you write. This is completely optional, but recommended.
     
  19. *giggles*, wouldn't be the first time someone had a great idea without intending it.
     
  20. Jack Roman - Illusion Teacher (open)
    GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Jack Roman
    Gender: Male
    Orientation: Straight
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: Forty-two
    Birthplace: Foreign

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: http://bigfanboy.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/davidtennant.jpg
    Mana Nature: Sensory
    Natural Talent: Ludicrous amounts of power and the skill to use it.
    More: As the number one most powerful wizard in the world, Jack's amount of available mana is stupidly gargantuan; even by the standard of powerful wizards. However, outside of very basic spells (such as telekinesis, flight, etc.) and anything regarding standard illusions or his sensory magic is pathetically weak (e.g. the most powerful fireball he can form is about the size of a small candle flame). However, Jack's is a master of his mana, and, as such, has developed combat techniques to breach wards that would normally be impossible for him to take down otherwise.
    More: Jack's ultimate technique is one of his own creation: Perception Magic. This is the most powerful form of illusion magic in existence. It was developed by Jack using his very specific mana type and by having the massive reserves to cast it. With it, Jack can reshape the way you perceive the world around you, resulting in completely realistic, false realities. What makes this magic so powerful, however, is if Jack wishes it, it can shatter the barrier between illusion and reality of the mind in which it is used on. In short, anything that happens to you in the illusion happens to you for real. If an imaginary sword slices you into pieces, your body will suddenly find itself cut into chunks. The only escape from this magic once cast upon you is unconsciousness or death, if the caster doesn't relinquish his hold on you. His sensory mana nature also grants him complete immunity to other forms of magical and physical sensory, as well as grant his the ultimate magical radar and perception.


    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS


    Current Goal/Purpose: To be left well alone by the government, while doing some good for the world.
    Non-magical Talents: Wallball and the ability to drink a seemingly endless amount of orange juice.
    Inabilities: He can't cook whatsoever; he has to rely on his illusions to make his food seem edible.
    Fears: His inner personality.
    General Personality: Quirky, whimsical, and incredibly impulsive, Jack is the trickster teacher of Red Star Academy. He is generally laid back and tends to give off a 'screw it' attitude towards most things. However, this only applies to any time he is not teaching. In class, he is strictly professional even if he has a bit of love for being dramatic. However, Jack is never boastful about his abilities simply for the sake of gloating or the feeling of being superior. That being said, it is not wise to challenge him.
    Inner Personality: Extreme anger and utter, remorseless cruelty. This is a side of Jack that has not been seen in decades; kept under such tight control, not even Jack himself remembers the general feeling. He does remember the effects. They haunt him to this day.
    Secret: His loneliness. Jack has virtually no true friends — something tht has resulted in him to practice summoning magic in in secret.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Not much is known about Jack's past, even to his fellow teachers. The headmaster knows a bit more, but not by much. Jack prefers it this way, because he finds such things woefully irrelevant. Whenever he is asked such things, like how he got his immense amount of power, his usual answer is to play lots of wall-ball and eat crap loads of meat.

    Jack was the illusion teacher at the fortress of Sanctuary. Jack's name was a legend throughout the school. Not a good legend, sadly. Jack was known as the school prankster and general annoyance. This is because the subject he teaches is generally disliked and hated by all, and, as such, his subject has so few practitioners that he only had to teach two classes a week. Because of this, he had a lot of free time. He used said time either hanging about the rooms of other teachers as they go about their job and occasionally heckling or helping them, depending on his mood and the situation at hand, or enjoying a game of wall-ball on the school grounds. When not doing either, he could usually be found in his office. No one knows exactly what he did in there, as whenever they entered the place, it looked completely empty. It was unsure by all if this is because he cast a spell around the place, or it is truly empty.

    As for Jack's actual teaching, he was exceptionally good at his job. This is one of the reasons why he rarely ever got thrown out of the classrooms in which he frequented. Jack has a knack for helping people understand any subjects they are having trouble with. This is partly because he seems to have knowledge of virtually every subject of magic, and partly because of the way he teaches lessons and gives examples. Jack was also highly regarded as the best sparing partner in the school.

    Present Life: Currently, given the lack of non-criminal practitioners of illusion magic, Jack was quickly found a new job to teach the subject at Red Star Academy. Much to his surprise, a familiar face greeted him upon his settling in: Sky, a graduated student of Sanctuary. Jack got to know the young woman quite well from the large amount of extra-curricular excursions she took on during her training in which he accompanied her for protection.
