  1. Welcome to The Carnival of Myths and Make Believe!
    A place full of wonder and mystery....

    This RP is about the life of the carnival/circus workers. The interesting thing about this carnival is what it's name means. It really is full of myths and make believe. Full of mythical creatures and crazy people. Where the workers and the attractions are full of wonder.

    Skeleton (explanations of categories):
    Name: Your characters full name (middle is optional).
    Nickname or stage name: What they call you or when you are working.
    Age: Any age is fine.
    Job: This is a carnival and circus. (Jugglers, clowns, booth workers, attraction workers, contortionists, freak show workers. etc.)
    How long have you worked there: The carnival started three years ago.
    Species: This is where the myth and make believe come in. (Human, alien, mythical creature, cyborg, anthro. etc.)
    Personality: Self explanatory.
    Crush: It's okay if you don't have one. I know it would be hard at first with no other characters.

    Extra info: What ever you want to say about your character.
    Looks: This can be a picture or description.

    Extra info. on RP:
    ~I love romance so that is why crush is there
    ~Be creative, you can be anything and do anything. If you are unsure if it is okay don't be afraid to ask but I'm sure I will say yes.
    ~This carnival is sort of darker than others, as well as more creepy by the way. The myth and make believe is suppose to be more scaryish (I know not a word) than fairy tail happy ending style.

  4. Name: Kyoto Ito

    Nickname or Stage name: Kyoto

    Age: 19

    Job (May he be Mime? You know, people that wear the white paint and shiz. If not, I'll just get the juggler.)

    How long have you worked there?: 2 years.

    Species: Human.

    Personality: Kyoto is rather quiet around people he doesn't know, although it may not seem like it, because of his appearance. He is also sort of shy, but has came out of his shell just a bit since he joined the carnival. He's sometimes aggressive if you push his buttons, but is really a nice guy if you get to know him better.

    Crush: No one.

    Past:Kyoto was sort of known for his talent, miming, and he'd practice every single day non-stop. He'd entertain his parents as a child by doing that, and everyone else around him also. At age 16, his parents got into a bad car accident, and sadly didn't make it. He'd still practice in front of his mirror for hours. That's when he joined the carnival.


  5. Mine is just fine. :)
  6. I'm going to post up the RP. Sign-ups are still open for anyone who would like to join.
  7. Name:
    Anita McClaine (Original last name is Whitley)

    Nickname or stage name:
    "Miss Mistress the Beast Tamer"

    old, she looks about 20

    Beast Tamer

    How long have you worked there:
    Nearly a year


    Anita is friendly enough, but below that she has a very hard time attaching to anyone. And with that, she gives little to no care if she makes enemies or friends, the way she sees it, most creatures die off after awhile anyways. When she speaks, she does so in a blunt, forward manner. In her lifetime, she has found that following the KISS( Keep It Simple, Stupid) rule has the better effect when interacting with other 'intelligent' beings. Sometime's she'll conveniently forget that throwing someone through a wall isn't the best way to express her anger. Her temper, for the most part is mild, but once it's set off...it kind of takes over her rational thinking.

    Not as of yet, although there are quite a few she wouldn't mind taking a taste of.

    Anita was born in the Fall of 1827, ten years before the Victorian Era in a small English town. She was turned on her 21st birthday while her family was visiting London for a meeting between her and her newly betrothed. It was an arranged marriage set up by both her and his parents. It was something Anita wanted nothing to do with, but realized that she owed it to her family to deal with it anyways.

    However, the same night that the two families met, a new next of vampires came to town. Needless to say, meeting at a park after dark hadn't been the best move to take. The two families where drained. However, while Anita was being fed on, in an attempt to free herself from the vampire feeding on her, she bit into his arm. The vampire didn't notice the small amount of blood seeping from his arm into the dying human's mouth. After the blood drinkers where done with the families, they took them and threw them beneath a bridge on the outskirts of town. The next night, Anita rose as a vampire.

    Since then, Anita has done whatever she can to survive. She isn't a stranger to taking lives, but she tries to avoid it when possible. She moves around alot, every fifty or so years she'll change her last name. During her 'life' she found a fondness for animals who often times frighten most people. She usually has some large beast (often times a wolf) around to guard her during the day, and she always has at least one bat and one tarantula living with her. During her time, she's also taken to collecting spellbooks and studying witchcraft whenever it suits her.

    She recently stumbled upon the circus and was invited to stay after being spotted playing 'fetch the bone of questionable origins' with the local wildlife.

    Extra info:
    Right now she has an albino bat named Pearl and a black one named Onyx. She also has a tarantula named Rosette ( a very large one)

    Her eyes are a deep chilling red, her hair is brown with colored streaks (the color changes alot) She wears black and not many other colors.

    Past: Cross left his parents to live with his cousin when he was 15. They wanted to put him in a mental hospital, he didn't want to be stuck in a place like that. Ever since he was young he dreamed of making a carnival like what he has now. When he was 20 he ended impregnating a girl, giving him Angie. He moved away from his cousin and took care of Angie by himself, later making the Carnival.

  15. Name: Bobby Nickle

    Nickname: Flare Boy

    Age: 17

    Job: Juggler

    How long have you worked there: Around 7 months.

    Species: Human/Fire Elemental

    Personality: Bobby suffers from extreme pyromania, causing him to randomly attempt to set anything flammable on fire, he's also a cloud cuckoo lander, randomly bursting out in laughter and giggling, or even attempting to set himself on fire. When he succeeds on setting himself aflame, he'll desperately try to spread it, ramming into anything that seems flammable.


    Bobby had a simple past of anarchy, setting buildings on fire, running around on fire, setting people on fire, ect ect, one day he was caught, but literally burned a police station down before running away. He happened across the circus a few months later, and, while on the run, joined the circus, saying " I can juggle! Promise! " And by juggling, he meant juggling red hot flares.
