  5. Full Name: Milly Orvelle
    Address: A small town in Illinois
    Date of Birth & Age: Feb 3, 1991. Age 23. (Aquarius shall rule the rp!)

    Tell us a bit about yourself!

    What’s your nature?: Milly is overly polite and quiet when among strangers and adults. However, as long as she has at least one friend with her (and unfamiliar grown-ups aren't present), she's a goof off that enjoys laughter. A lover of bad puns, Milly thrives on comedy. She also loves the performing arts in all their forms, and adores being the center of attention while doing them, even when in front of strangers and adults. She has a near obsession with praise, and has been known to fish for it at times. She tends to gravitate towards people who offer up praise to her more often, or people that can make her laugh. Milly can get extremely competitive, especially when she thinks she has a chance of winning. In the end, Milly is an odd duckling, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

    What have you done in the past?: Milly grew up rather privileged. Though her parents were poor to begin with, her father found a job which led them straight to middle class when she was seven years old. As time passed, they reached upper middle class, and Milly wanted for nothing. In late middle school, Milly's band director helped the young girl discover her skill with the French Horn. Though by no means a prodigy, Milly still had impressive natural talent. After finishing high school and attending a college, Milly had no idea what she wanted to do for an occupation. It was then that she found a pamphlet for a special music school. And thus, Milly applied, hoping that she might find what she was looking for.

    What do you think you look like?:
    [​IMG]

    Milly is shorter than most people she knows, only standing at 5'2" (~157cm). Though not as flat-chested as she was in high school, Milly still isn't very busty. Her short, light brown hair and matching eyes are plain, leaving her with a more homely appearance. It is no surprise that Milly has been mistaken for a teenager more often than not.

    What things do you like?: Praise, Performing, Video games, Winning

    What things do you dislike?: Insects, Physical contact, Alcohol, Losing

    Do you have any special talents?: While playing her French Horn, Milly can summon to her side anyone or anything she is thinking of at the time. (she can only summon one thing/person per song)

    Preferred Schedule:
    -Drama and Theater
    -Grammar, Diction, and Literature
    -Musical Arts and History
    -Tennis
    -Mathematics

    What musical instrument do you prefer?: A plain, silver-colored French Horn.

    What Fraternity/Sorority would you like to join?: None, but if she must, then Novem Septem.

    What Clubs do you plan on joining?: Video Game BrotherSisterHood

    Extra curricular activities?: Tennis and Choir

    Have you read the school rules?: Yes

    Alright, last question!

  7. Full Name: Autumn Kirkland
    Address: (Where is your character from?): Born in Galway, Ireland but now resides mostly in Dublin
    Date of Birth & Age: January 30th, 1994, Autumn is 20
    Tell us a bit about yourself!
    What’s your nature?: (Personality, ethics, etc.): Autumn is seen as a leader. Everything goes her way as she was a natural leader through school. However Autumn can be a very kind person and will not usually resolve to violence to solve a problem. Autumn is level headed and practical while planning stage directions or music, however sometimes wings it out the stage as she does a lot of improv which adds the element of surprise. This tends to be the reason why Autumn can be impulsive with her actions much like her elder brother Allistor. Autumn is very intelligent thanks to growing up under tough guidelines. Under Autumn's hard exterior is just a girl trying to impress those around her. Autumn believes in a more modern lifestyle at times like no baby-making until after marriage, however she does tend to get feisty when someone she cares about is being bullied in other terms.

    What have you done in the past?: (History.): Autumn was born in Ireland's music capital Galway on a surprising warm sunny January day. At the time of her birth Beethoven's ninth symphony was being played believing it to help Autumn's mother give birth. From an early age she showed to have quite the taste in music as she picked up her first instrument, which is the violin, at five. Of course through much hard work Autumn began to give recitals at the ages of eight-thirteen. While during those years Autumn picked up the love of theater, it intrigued her to become someone else even if it was for a while or so. Her first production was "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" and her other productions include: "Bugsy Malone", "The Little Mermaid", "Sherlock Holmes", "Matilda" and her most recent,"Beauty and the Beast". However her life wasn't so pretty as her parents we rarely home and most of the money went to the doctor bills to pay for her father's chemo and radiation treatment. So Autumn also had to juggle around a job at the local seventies theme diner, recitals, and productions. Autumn even wrote some of her own music and it was performed with several big name groups like Celtic Thunder. Recently a year ago Autumn moved to Dublin so she could experience more of a city life.
    What do you think you look like?: (Appearance description and/or image.): https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/data/avatars/l/11/11397.jpg?1411163031
    What things do you like?: Autumn loves to write music for the orchestra to perform, and she loves to write scripts. Her tone of writing is a bit humorous with a serious edge to the mix mystery adventure. In her spare time when she isn't playing the violin, piano, or guitar you can find Autumn reading quietly in the highest tree branch.
    What things do you dislike?: Autumn very much dislikes seeing people sick, it reminds her too much of her father. Autumn also has a very small patience for people who like to mooch, steal ideas, and utter and plain stupidity.
    Do you have any special talents?: (These are where magical abilities go. All magical abilities relate to your character’s instrument. Ex: Someone who plays guitar can calm anyone with their music.) Autumn when playing the violin as the ability to make the audience feel the sadness of the piece or the danger of it. With the Piano it's more of a calm serene sound and for the guitar no matter the piece makes the listener happy.
    Preferred Schedule: (Must have five classes total, and one of them must be music.) German, Literature, Theater, Musical arts and history, Volleyball
    What musical instrument do you prefer?: (Is it magical? Plain? What color is it?): Violin, Grand Piano, Acoustic and electric. Her violin was made in Berlin Germany. Autumn's Electric guitar is a Stratocaster and it's black with almost copper like accents. Autumn's acoustic guitar is blue.
    What Fraternity/Sorority would you like to join?: Novem Septem
    What Clubs do you plan on joining?: Sports fans club and Computer enthusiasts
    Extra curricular activities?: Small orchestra quartet, tennis, and writing
    Have you read the school rules?: Yes.

  13. @lilly321

    Hey! Your app is good, but considering this is a University-style campus, she should be at least eighteen. Sixteen is a bit too young.
     
  14. oops let me fix that!
     
  15. Full Name: Myuka Christine Hiramatsu
    Address: (Where is your character from?) A small town in northern Minnesota (United States)
    Date of Birth & Age: March 3rd, 1993. She is currently 21 years old.
    Tell us a bit about yourself!
    What’s your nature?: (Personality, ethics, etc.) Myuka (or Myu as most call her) has a bubbly and friendly personality. She can be pretty sarcastic and at certain times a 'sass mouth,' but she does her best to be on everyone's good side! She generally gets along with both genders well, not having any more friends that are girls than guys. She's not a straight A student but she always tries her best and will stay up late to finish that assignment before it's due. She works well in groups and generally doesn't like to be alone. She's a hard working student, which means she also plays hard after hours! She's been known to throw the occasional 'kick back' during the weekends. Never wanting to be alone, her rented house near campus is usually filled with college students ready to get their party on. She's a fun hostess, who likes to create themes for most occasions. When mid terms and finals are over, her place will be the number one destination of the weekend.
    What have you done in the past?: (History.) Myu has played trumpet since she was 10 years old. Picking it up for band class and never expecting to do too much in it, she was pleasantly surprised when she seemed to have a natural gift for the brass instrument. She played trumpet through middle school and then continued throughout high school, even becoming a welcomed member to her high school marching band. Becoming trumpet soloist her junior and senior year in high school made her excited to major in music in college. She auditioned for the university and was surprisingly accepted with a full ride scholarship to play trumpet and continue her studies. For most that don't already know, trumpet is generally a male dominant instrument. With how small a girl she was most were surprised when she was accepted for such a powerful brass instrumental group!
    What do you think you look like?: (Appearance description and/or image.) [​IMG]
    What things do you like?: She likes playing trumpet first and foremost. She LOVES being on stage! She loves friends and making new friends. Plus after a lot of hard work and studying she loves to unwind by either attending parties or throwing parties.
    What things do you dislike?: She hates scary movies! She doesn't handle drama, she does her best to stay out of that aspect of adulthood. Oddly enough, despite her being an adult and renting a house for school she hates to be alone; she likes to be surrounded by other people.
    Do you have any special talents?: (These are where magical abilities go. All magical abilities relate to your character’s instrument. Ex: Someone who plays guitar can calm anyone with their music.) She can easily bring in a crowd! Whether performing on a street corner or in a concert hall, something about her soft legato style on the trumpet really brings people in. Some would think it's almost 'magic,' that she can draw the attention of random civilians so easily within the first few notes of her tune!
    Preferred Schedule: (Must have five classes total, and one of them must be music.)
    Period 1: Want to be bilingual?
    Period 2: Language Courses (Japanese)
    Period 3: Gymnastics
    Period 4: Musical Arts and History
    Period 5: Talent Tutoring

    What musical instrument do you prefer?: (Is it magical? Plain? What color is it?) Myuka specifically requested a Bach Stradivarius 37 model trumpet. The trumpet is a dark black with a few sections gold plated. You can also see a beautiful design beginning at the bell and going up the tubing of the trumpet. The trumpet looks plain enough, but still has that odd air about it that draws anyone near by into it's beautiful sounds. [​IMG]
    What Fraternity/Sorority would you like to join?: Myu has shown a slight interest in Novem Septem, but has always been curious to talk to a member about more information.
    What Clubs do you plan on joining?: She would be an awesome member of Snack Club! So many snacks!
    Extra curricular activities?: Does after school shenanigans count as extra curricular activities?
    Have you read the school rules?: She has read through the rules once, but only once.
    Alright, last question!
    What are your goals upon being accepted into the school? Please provide a short explanation. (This is just for fun, please don’t worry about trying to hard/not enough!). Myuka's main goal while attending school would be to show most of civilization that female trumpet players are just as powerful and talented as any male trumpeter! Female trumpet players often get the shaft, people thinking that they are too tiny, they can't hit the high notes, or that their lungs are not as big or developed as a male trumpeter. She wants to prove those stereotypes wrong and do the best she can to get her name out there!

  17. Full Name: Ryland Berry
    Address: Charlottetown, P.E.I (Canada)
    Date of Birth & Age: August 4th 1994, 20yrs old.
    Tell us a bit about yourself!
    What's your nature?: Ryland is not a social butterfly, nor is he a lone wolf; instead he finds comfort and happiness with animals. Even if he reluctantly agreed to part ways with his friends, he does want to make human ones, though he lacks the necessary social skills. Most adults like him because of his punctuality and good sense of responsibility. Though he is neither the knowledgable or intelligent, he can be insightful when given the opportunity. He can also pretty sensitive when it comes to his appearance. He is quiet most of the time, this is mostly because he has nothing to say about the current situation. On the occasions he does talk, expect an awkward suggestion or answer.

    What gave you done in the past?: Born and raised in a farm, Ryland started his friendships with the many animals that lived there. But his musical influence was caused by a trip to a Celtic festival, and fell in love with the harp that played during one of the performances. His parents weren't too strict and allowed him to get lessons if he saved up. So he did, and tried his hardest to aim close to perfection when it came to his passion. Soon branching out to learn a bit of other things as well out of curiosity, like acapella and the clarinet. And after becoming old enough to be on his own, his family encouraged him to enrol in the school of music. Which then eventually lead to this.

    What do you look like?:
    [​IMG]
    What things do you like?: Animals, anything to do with music, summer, difference/change, classical and folk.
    What things do you dislike?: Human interaction, math, winter, heavy metal, over-complication.
    Do you have any special talents?: If playing the harp, he can show quick images in people's or person's mind. Of course he has to think of the image; and if playing any other random instrument, the end result would be a blurry mess.
    Preferred Schedule?:
    Musical arts and History
    Biology

    Literat
    Talent tutoring
    What instrument do you prefer?:Harps
