    • Name: Arbaaz "أرباز"
      Age: 73
      Alignment: Positive
      Weapons: Sniper Rifle, Knife
      Current Host: Arbaaz does not have a current host.
      Character owner: Tsu

      Physical Power: ***** (5/10)
      Defense: * (1/10)
      Special Power: ** (2/10)
      Speed: **** (4/10)
      Support:**** (4/10)
      Difficulty: *** (3/10)

      Abilities: Arbaaz at his base is a very capable sniper with above average talent in both knife and hand to hand combat while factoring in his supernatural effect allows Arbaaz some manipulation of sand. Manifesting bullets that explode into clouds of sand is most often utilized in preparation for his signature skill, "Sand Ricochet." Bullets that Arbaaz fire are capable of being manipulated through or ricochetted against grains of sand to create a insanely long ranged attack or a flurry of consecutive attacks when fired into a cloud of a sand. Reconnaissance missions and assassination through sniping are the two most common uses that Arbaaz has for his power.

      Negative Aspects: Arbaaz heavily relies on utilizing distance for effective sniping. While he can hold his own in close quarter combat, his power is not suited to such talents, and he is severally outclassed by other physical based Zodiacs. Outside of combat, Arbaaz, apart from a few particular words, cannot speak English. In addition, unlike Thane, the host of Arbaaz does not gain a passive understanding of Arabic.

      History: Coming later...

      Misc: He is the Specialist instructor at the Dominion.



    • Name: Cecilia “The Couturier of Existence”
      Age: 180
      Alignment: Neutral
      Weapon: Scissors, Teddy bears
      Current Host: None
      Character Owner: Tsu

      Physical Power: - (0/10)
      Defense: * (1/10)
      Special Power: ********** (10/10)
      Speed: * (1/10)
      Support: ****** (6/10)
      Difficulty: ********** (8/10)

      Abilities: Cecilia is capable of manipulating the very threads of existence itself. Through her eyes, every object can seen as a compilation of threads that represent each element that composes the object as a whole. By decomposing these threads, Cecilia can destroy an object, collect the individual threads, then reconstruct them at her will. Humanoid objects, created through her power, can be manipulated as seen in the many dolls and teddy bears that “serve” their master.

      That being said, Cecilia is unable to destroy the threads of a living human or Zodiac. Life that has perished or corrupted into Hollows are free for her decomposition, and it is subsequently believed that the active soul of humans and Zodiacs prevent her power from functioning as per the norm. Nevertheless, Cecilia is still able to “add” threads to both humans and Zodiacs, allowing for her ability to heal, manipulate appearances, etc.

      Negative Aspects: Apart from her army of teddy bears, fit for battle, Cecilia's battle prowess is highly limited by the time required to construct objects for use. If she has threads in storage, the time for deconstruction is cut from the equation; however, while other Zodiacs could fire a barrage of power, she would be relegated to constructing first. That being said, if left to a protected support role, Cecilia can be a unstoppable menace given the near unlimited scope of her ability.

      History:
      It was a bitter cold November of 1821. On the corner of Nassau Street in the financial district of New York City, the first cries of a newborn child were heard emanating from the upstairs apartment of a quaint two story establishment that housed a foreign family under the name of Albrecht. Backed by their reputation as a family of tailors, the Albrecht's inhabited the building's lower floor with a successful business that catered toward lower Manhattan as a whole.
      The child's birth was a blessing for the aged Albrecht couple, and even through her curse of partial blindness that hindered her growth as an heir was the utmost love and care given to the young girl's life. During her youth, Cecilia's parents attempted to shy her education away from the art of her lineage; however, with the blood of a tailor flowing through her veins, the inevitable life of an artisan was one which would envelop the girl's existence.
      Cecilia held a gift that was beyond the norms of ordinary. A gift that could have been considered a angel's blessing to counteract the miserable cursed life she led from her birth. Apart from her outstanding talent despite the hindrance of her sight, Cecilia became known for her "clairvoyant eyes" which seemed to gauge the true emotions of her clients toward the masterpiece of perfection they desired. Never once did a client leave unsatisfied with her fruits of her labor, and it was through the years of childhood work that her name became synonymous with the next rising couturier.

      All things positive must come to an end.
      A phrase that accurately describes Cecilia's existence as the Great Fire of New York in 1835 consumed the young girl's dreams along with the life of her family in a single evening. For her parents who had lived their lives without any regrets, ascension to the afterlife was possible for their souls; however, for the fourteen year old girl who desired much more from her life, limbo was the only answer for her soul.No longer bounded by the laws of reality, Cecilia's "clairvoyant eyes" grew only stronger in power as the vision of threads, intertwining the existence of any entity, soon became apparent to her eyes.With eternity to develop her new found talent, Cecilia came to understand the control over existence that she held through manipulation of the threads. Every entity alive or not was determined by their fate, and it was a fate which could be torn to shreds and reassembled how she desired. With the appearance of a child further extenuated by her teddy bear, Gom, Cecilia often became a misjudged entity in the eyes of the spirits; however, as the years of her existence passed in Limbo and her skills slowly began to develop, a mutual respect for the girl was quickly understood as she soon became titled the "Couturier of Existence."

      Misc: Cecilia is a member of the Ravenwood Faction and is currently titled as the Head Researcher of the organization. Utilizing her power alongside of her genius, Cecilia spends her time researching hollows in order to better understand their existence and possible use of their energy.

    • Name: Fushinsetsu aka "Shun Takumi" or "Bastion"
      Age: 173
      Alignment: Neutral
      Weapon: Paint brush, Memories, Revolver
      Current Host: N/A
      Character Owner: Tsu

      **Fushinsetsu is a special case among the Zodiacs. Due to circumstances in the past, his existence is the result of the host, Shun Takumi, merging with the partially hollowed Zodiac, Bastion, to form the single entity he is today. He is considered a hybrid among Zodiac, human, and hollow nature.

      Physical Power: * (1/10)
      Defense: * (1/10)
      Special Power: ********* (9/10)
      Speed: * (1/10)
      Support: ****** (6/10)
      Difficulty: ****** (6/10)

      Abilities: Fushinsetsu’s abilities are split into the two following categories:

      Memories: Fushinsetsu is capable of reading and drawing forth the memories of his own and those around him into orbs of multi colored lights. These lights can then be used for creation purposes.

      Creation: Using his brush, Fushinsetsu can choose to paint on any surface or can choose to draw memories from himself or those around him. Spiritual bullets from his revolver can then manifest any painting or memory into a subsequent reality. This power is very flexible and can be used for offensive, defensive, or support purposes. In the past, Fushinsetsu has been most known for copying other Zodiac powers, using his power for healing, or creating realistic illusions to overwhelm the opposition.

      Negative Aspects: Fushinsetsu's most limiting factor is the double edged sword that his hollow nature provides. While the hollow energy provides him with unlimited usage of his power, doing so in turn accelerates the rate at which his body hollowfies. While the process is normally halted through Cecilia's medicine, excessive usage of his power overwrites the limiter's effect. In actual combat, without utilizing memories, Fushinsetsu is highly limited by the time required to paint the desire manifestation. While his powers seemingly lean toward highly offensive, Fushinsetsu is truly a support-type Zodiac at his base. That being said, Fushinsetsu is no where near helpless due to his cunning, tactician-like nature, and in the past, he has easily overpowered several hosts and Zodiacs with minimal usage of his power.

      History: Coming later….

      Misc: Fushinsetsu is the founder of the Ravenwood faction. He is currently titled as the President of the Ravenwood Academic Institution under the name of Shun Takumi. Outside of his public image, Fushinsetsu is an assistant researcher under Cecilia, and a man who is seemingly involved with many entities, both positive and negative.

    • Name: Rakku
      Age: 2102
      Alignment: Positive
      Weapons: Roulette Tickets, Shēngxiào Artifacts
      Current Host: Hideko(Controlled Chaos)

      Power levels vary depending on weapon equipped.
      Difficulty: ********** (10/10)

      Abilities: Rakku is a unique Zodiac in the sense that his existence is quite determinant on luck. Chosen wielder of the Shēngxiào artifacts, it is from a set of twelve diverse weapons that Rakku can summon through the roulette tickets he holds. By sacrificing a blood price onto a single ticket, one of artifacts will be temporarily summoned for Rakku’s bidding. Each artifact has a unique personality drawn from each unique identity found within the circle of animals. Each weapon bestows a set of powers and skills that appropriately reflect the soul forged within.

      Negative Aspects: While the roulette tickets prove to be Rakku’s greatest asset, they also prove to be his greatest weakness. Determined entirely through luck, Rakku has no control over which artifact is summoned to his side. Because of the artifact’s diversity, ranging from physical offense to magical healing, the chosen artifact isn’t always the desired artifact given a situation. Once an artifact has been summoned, the process cannot be undone until the weapon has exhausted its energy and returns to the spiritual realm of Rakku’s Limbo. During this time, no further artifacts can be summoned, and Rakku is forced to work with the chosen artifact at hand.

      History: Coming soon~

      Misc: Rakku is hardly a Zodiac worthy of respect. Considered a lazy drunkard by those who know of his name, Rakku has been consistently shamed for his lack of care toward the artifacts forged from his brethren's souls. Currently, Rakku only holds three remaining artifacts as the other nine have either been lost or stolen throughout Limbo and the human realm.

      Artifact List: Will be provided over time.

      Rat (open)

      Weapon: Street Urchin's Knife
      Location: ???
      Power: The rat holds the power of invisibility within his dagger. The simplest implementation of his power is allowing the user to enter a cloaked state for a period of time. The cloaked state phases the user out of existence, and ordinary detection methods are not usable. In addition, any wounds his dagger inflicts will cause the immediate location around the area to enter a similar cloaked state. For instance, stabbing an enemy's thigh will cause that region to fade from visibility.


      Ox (open)

      Weapon: The Ox's Stubborn Shield
      Location: ???
      Power: The Ox's Stubborn Shield is an oversized shield which allows for the perfect defense. All forms of attacks will be deflected, and the energy behind any power will be absorbed into the shield. After a certain amount of energy has been absorbed, the shield can counter a blast of concentrated energy in a straight line, forward.


      Tiger (open)

      Weapon: Fists of Thunder
      Location: ???
      Power: The Fists of Thunder are blessed with concentrated charges of lightning. The charges can be used to fire bolts of lightning or to imbue the weapons. Charges are replenished by using the fists in battle, or absorbing sources of lightning. With enough charges, the weapons can be used to summon a lightning storm in the region. In any ordinary thunder storm or magical lighting storm, the fists will act as a natural thunder rod. The user gains passive resistance to electricity.



      Rabbit (open)

      Weapon: Needles of Charm
      Location: ???
      Power: The rabbit is gifted with the ability of charm and manipulation. Victims of the needles are subjugated to the user's will. The strength of the effect is determined by the victim's willpower and resistance to such effects. The charming effect is stronger against opposite genders or those who desire the same gender. The needles are used to target specific locations to subjugate. For instance, targeting an opponent's arm will allow the Rabbit to manipulate that arm to his own biding.


      Dragon (open)
      Secret


      Snake (open)

      Weapon: Blade of Scaled Mirage
      Location: ???
      Power: The snake is an illusive figure who takes pride in his trickery. The Phantom Blade allows the user to manifest illusions of themselves. These illusions can be controlled at will, and hold no difference from the original user. Any injuries inflicted by these illusions will feel and appear realistic, unless the opposition realizes the fake nature of the injury. For instance, if someone was stabbed by an illusion's sword, unless the stabbed individual were to realize the wound's fake nature, their mind would trick itself into believing the wound was truly real.


      Horse (open)
      Secret


      Goat (open)

      Weapon: Shepard's Bell Staff
      Location: ???[/B]
      Power: The Shepard's Bell Staff holds the power of manipulating healing energies among individuals. The staff is able to distribute the severity of an injury by manipulation the negative energy which exists from the wound. For instance, if an individual was fatally stabbed in the gut, then the staff could distribute the energy among several people to lesson the wound's severity. In addition, the staff is capable of drawing energy from lesser life, in particular animals and plants, to heal wounds. This will kill the source of life, however.


      Monkey (open)
      Secret


      Rooster (open)

      Weapon: The Gong of Sunrise and Sunset. Zither of Vitality.
      Location: ???
      Power: As expected by the rooster's nature, the Gong of Sunrise is a supportive type weapon which bolsters allies or hinders opposition. The Gong of Sunset is capable of draining energy from enemies. That energy can then be distributed through the Gong of Sunrise. The Zither of vitality can be played to bolster allies' overall condition. This includes eliminating fatigue, increased pain tolerance, etc. Playing the Zither requires concentration, and the user will be unable to act during the time.


      Dog (open)

      Weapon: Chained Sickles
      Location: Rakku's Limbo
      Power: The dog is a lazy tactician by nature. Any plan that the dog surmises within acceptable bounds of reality will be performed without fail. For instance, if the user of the dog is to imagine the following:
      "Double jumping, scaling the side of a building, then diving in an assassination attempt."
      The user will be capable of surpassing the bounds of physics and performing such a feat.



      Pig (open)

      Weapon: Elemental Chakrams
      Location: Rakku's Limbo
      Power: As implied by its title, the pig's Chakrams holds the power of manipulation over the elements. The Chakrams are capable of absorbing any oncoming or passively existing sources of the elements. Each Chakram can hold a single element. The four elements are water, fire, air, and earth.

    • Name: Warden
      Age: 307
      Alignment: Neutral Positive
      Weapons: Single side-sword
      Current Host: Damian

      Physical Power: *** (3/10)
      Defense: **** (4/10)
      Special Power: ******** (8/10)
      Speed: *** (3/10)
      Support: * (1/10)
      Difficulty: *****

      Abilities: Warden’s power is akin to incurred wrath. The catalyst to Warden’s abilities is sin and guilt. The user must acknowledge his sin and cope with their guilt in order to call upon Warden’s power of dark justice.
      The user controls a completely malleable form of withering dark energy that can be used in any shape to harass and afflict the target. The withering is a slow, but gradual process towards those affected. The target will begin to slowly disintegrate, though the effect will wear off without a constant offense.

      Negative Aspects:
      • The user becomes cruel and callous, losing the feeling of empathy and taking on a black and white view on karma and punishment. This can lead to taking to fatalities to end battles or any small scale skirmish. Ruining the user reputation if one was kept. (Infamy)
      • When using the power, the user must berate themselves with their past transgressions to heighten intensity. This can ruin their emotional state on a regular basis.
      History: Warden has never given insight to his past life, or even his true name. Only that he was killed by his closest friend on his birthday during a masquerade ball.

      Misc: Warden, while being a Zodiac, is the watchman of Purgatory. On his own he takes on this role of sealing away AWOL Zodiacs and purging Hollows.

    • Yin is on the right, Yang is on the left.

      Name: Yin & Yang
      Age: 1863
      Alignment: Negative
      Weapons: Orb of Yin, Orb of Yang
      Current Host: Yin & Yang do not have a host at this point.
      Character owner: Tsu

      Physical Power: - (0/10)
      Defense: * (1/10)
      Special Power: ***** (5/10)
      Speed: * (1/10)
      Support:******** (10/10)
      Difficulty: ******* (8/10)

      Abilities: Yin & Yang control the balance of powers that exists amongst the supernatural. Yin is capable of stealing power from any Zodiac or host and in turn, giving that power for Yang to use. The more power that Yin steals, the stronger Yin's energy becomes, but the weaker Yang's energy dwindles. From the opposite perspective, Yang is able to bolster the power of a Host or Zodiac through Yin's energy. Doing so provides Yin with a portion of the bolstered power. The more Yang bolsters a power, the stronger Yang's energy becomes, but the weaker Yin's energy dwindles.

      Negative Aspects: Yin & Yang are not capable of effectively fighting multiple opponents. They are at their strongest against small numbers, and can be easily overwhelmed otherwise. Using either of their powers, weakens the other to some degree, and unless balance is maintained, one of the twins is found in a vulnerable situation. In addition, any stolen power is only a fraction of its strength which limits its usability depending on the power. That being said, the twins are far from weak. Attempt to engage them alone or with small numbers, and you will quickly regret your decision.

      History: Coming later...

      Misc: Yin & Yang hold possession of four Shengxiao artifacts

  8. I'm not sure if there will be a list of the clubs. That will depend on how much everyone develops and wants school to be a large aspect of the roleplay.
    We will react accordingly.
    As for the map, its somewhat AWOl due to being outdated, but once we update all the information in the OOC here, it might make a return.

    Take your time and get better! Thanks for letting me know though.

  19. Derped and put this in the interest check thread. -_- This is what I get for having so many tabs open.

    So sign-ups are still open? Thank goodness, I only just found this. I'm writing up my CS now, just a couple of questions: First, is the picture mandatory? I can never find one. Second, what kind of powers do Zodiacs typically grant Hosts? It doesn't actually specify, besides a somewhat vague reference to raw physical prowess. As a new student I won't actually start with one, but it'll be good to know.

    Yes sign-ups are still open until monday.
    We do require a picture seeing you are technically enrolling into a school in the character sheet.
    Finally, zodiac powers are very diverse if you are chosen to receive one.
    A full list will be uploaded later, but as of now we have blood bending, creation, elemental manipulation, teleportation...among many more.
