    Is there really a point to seperating the classes, though? All it'll really do is make it so our characters have less of a chance to do stuff together, won't it? And it's not like we have a lot of people.
    Not changing my signature 'till TWEWY 2 comes out.

    Also this RP is really cool. It's like Percy Jackson. You can be a god's reincarnation and have powers and you're at a school and it's totally radical!

    Exactly. Which is why I don't want to spread them out. But, uh... let's get some teachers first xD

    All right, finally managed to get this done. Sorry for the delay @Yun;.I'll see if I can put up a student as well, but I can't think of anything right now...

    Name: Sera Chere
    Gender: Male
    Age: 25
    Sexuality: Straight

    Personality: Kindhearted and motherly, Sera became a teacher out of a sincere desire to help guide others to become the best they could, to unleash all their potential. Though naturally impatient and easily frustrated at times, she still makes the effort to be a friend and confidante to her students. Sera is always willing to extend the benefit of the doubt to another, to offer a helping hand when it is needed--but she in turn expects the same from others. Nothing outrages her more than hypocrisy and betrayal of trust.
    Appearance: Short and petite, Sera is slim and stands at a mere 5'3". A natural blonde with hazel-green eyes, she enjoys dying her hair and trying out new hairstyles every few months; her hair is currently raven black and wavy. Though is she competent at archery, she rarely practices, leaving her rather physically weak and unimposing. Her preferred style of clothing is simple but professional, with her favorite white jacket on top.
    History: Born to a fairly average family, Sera was orphaned at the age of eight, left only under the care of her older, fifteen-year-old sister Terra. Though her sister dearly loved her, and struggled to provide for the both of them, the long hours of work Terra was forced to put in often left Sera alone at home. Though intellectually and even in the deepest parts of her heart Sera knew Terra did all this because she loved her, Sera came to resent the separation between them, and eventually her sister as well. In a sense, the discovery of her magic and her time at Vanguard Academia was both blessing and curse; while it lifted an incredible burden from her sister's shoulders, the separation between the two was exacerbated by the physical distance between them. During her last year at Vanguard Academia, Terra was killed in an accident. Struck by guilt for never reconciling with her sister and nurturing her anger toward her for years, Sera swore to follow her sister's example of selflessness, to give others the same dedication and support she received from Terra.

    Subject Name: Runic magic
    Subject Description: The use of magical energy to inscribe runes and seals with varying effects. Though a precise and difficult-to-learn art, mastery grants incredible versatility, allowing the use of magic one is unskilled in.

    Abilities: Instant rune magic. Instead of having to manually write seals, she can channel her magical energy to 'inscribe 'it into the ground at her feet, or even in the air around her.
    - Advantages: The versatility of runic magic coupled with incredible casting speed--relatively speaking.
    - Disadvantages: A much higher energy cost than even normal runic spells--runic magic is already mildly inefficient, compared to spells that directly cast its effect--and thus much more devastating backlash if the rune is incorrectly written; very loud and obvious, and prone to failure if she is interrupted while writing.

    Weapon: A handmade enchanted bow, that forms arrows out of her magical energy (though the arrows have no effects in and of themselves; the enchantment merely gives her unlimited ammunition)
    Skills: A usually excellent memory coupled with a sharp and analytic mind.

    Default Re: Vanguard Academia

    Name: Lahia Leastral
    Gender:Female
    Age: 16
    Sexuality: Straight

    Personality People usually think that Lahia is a innocent girl due to her cute appearance, they are very wrong. She is a very sarcastic and she isn't naive, whoever she's a usually nice girl who likes to joke. A moment is never dull with her. She can easily holds a grudge against a person and is stubborn as hell. Music is probably one of the things she loves the most.

    Appearance: Lahia is 5'5' tall with a fair skin. Her eye color is lavender and is blond. Her hair is long and has a side fringe at the side of her face. She likes to wear t-shirts and button shirts of warm colors and jeans or skirts, she always wears a gold ring bracelet which was a gift from her Dad and her silver headphones

    History: Lahia is a single child living with her mother, her dad has a job that requires him to be in faraway places. Lahia can't help but feel resented by this even though he's trying his best to stay connected. She took up the Viola to take her mind off this which lead her to accidentaly discover that her powers worked better with the string instrument. When she found out about Vanguard Academia, she decided to go there to both improve and distract herself.

    Abilities: She has sound powers which she can use to do a variety of things, she uses her Viola as a conduct.
    - Advantages: She does a variety of things like make a sonic waves or imitate other sounds or voices.
    - Disadvantages: Without her Viola her powers are greatly weakened so she has to rely on it. She also needs concentracion to activate her abilities while playing her musical instrument or either her powers will peform weakly or backfire.

    Weapon: She uses her Viola for her power but for a more traditional approach to fighting, she uses her bow and arrows.
    Skills: Besides being able to play her viola well, she also practices archery.

    Default Re: Vanguard Academia

    Name: Jean Kubin
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16
    Sexuality: Bisexual

    Personality: Jean is a fairly quiet young man, and somewhat nervous. He is eager to make friends, though, so he might come out of his shell if he likes someone. Despite this, he dislikes relying on others for support, although he is loyal to those he cares about. He's the kind of guy who dislikes relying on others, but will always try and help his friends. He has something of a thirst for power. He wants people to stop controlling his world so he can do it himself.
    Appearance: Jean is about average height, at 5'11, and has pale skin. His face is constantly rosey coloured, as if he just came in from a very cold day. His hair is somewhat curly and black, and goes down to just below his ears. His eyes are a very pale blue, close to grey, and go well with his rectangular, silver-rimmed glasses. Jean's very slim, with a lanky body. His lack of muscle can be seen quite easily due to the fact he usually wears t-shirts, so he usually combines this with an aviator jacket. He usually wears cargo pants, which usually contain small objects he finds in the pockets.
    History: Jean is actually the second child his parents had. He doesn't know it, but a year before him, his mother had a miscarriage. This led his parents to be very overbearing. It didn't help that one of the first times they let Jean go out on his own, at five, he fell off a slide and broke his arm. So his parents tried to stop him from leaving home outside of school. This meant he didn't get many friends, and he was picked on a lot at school.

    This changed when he learned he could use magic. He was helping his mom bake some cake, when the dough turned into some sort of monster. He killed it with a spatula, and his parents forbid him from using magic again. However, he secretly kept practicing it. He recently ran away from home to enroll at Vanguard Academia.

    Abilities: Jean's magic lets him summon two different minions. The first of which are floating hands with eyes on the palms, called Beholders. Vance can adjust the color and reflectivity of them any way he wants, and also make them very large, although bigger hands are more taxing as far as energy. The eyes can shoot out beams of chaos energy. They burn through larger objects, and can even make smaller objects like basketballs and rabbits explode. The beams also bounce off reflective surfaces.

    The second of his minions are vetala. They're shaped vaguely like humans, but it's very obvious they aren't. Their arms are longer and much thinner, and end in sharp claws. Their skin is dark purple and totally hairless. Their heads are fairly large relative to their bodies, and have only green eyes, two nostrils, and a large mouth full of sharp teeth on them.

    To make them, Jean needs to pour material that was once living on any material that's no longer living, be it dirt, stone, wood, or corned beef hash. As soon as he does, a vetala will spring from it. It's size depends on how much of whatever material he poured in addition to the base material. Vetala are fairly agile, and while not particularly strong, they have sharp claws and a nasty bite. And depending on the material he made them out of, they can be fairly durable. JEan can also graft them onto his body, in which case they become serpents protruding from his flesh.

    It should be noted that neither of these are the creation of life. Jean is simply animating air (In the case of his beholders) and solid matter (In the case of his vetala.) They can't think for themselves. They only do what Jean tells them to.

    - Advantages: The beholder eye beams are fairly strong. They can burn a hole in human flesh fairly easily, and travel fairly fast. They can also float around fairly quickly, and lift small objects. Meanwhile, the vetala can move fairly quickly, their bites and scratches are painful, and Jean can usually create them en masse, or make one very large one. He can also use them to defend himself, parrying attacks with snakes coming out of his body, or use them as weapons. Finally, even if they are mindless, this does not mean they are stupid. They can follow orders that Jean gives them mentally, and are fairly good at doing so. They can solve simple logical problems, such as basic arithmetic and smaller jigsaw puzzles as well.

    - Disadvantages: The beholder's beams need about a second to charge up, so they can be fairly easy to dodge if you're paying attention. They also deflate if punctured, leaking out a black smoke. The vetala, meanwhile, have no supernatural powers: Their main strength is their claws, teeth, and the numbers in which Jean can make them. Also, their durability is dependent on whatever Jean makes them from. Ones made of metal will usually be quite tough; Ones made of clay, not so much.

    He also needs some form of once-living material to make them. To make a vetala the size of a cat takes about a teaspoon. One the size of a medium dog will take about two tablespoons. And one the size of a human takes about a gallon. If J grafts a vetala onto himself, it will weigh him down. He can't fight very well with four seven-foot long steel snakes jutting out of his back. Finally, while his minions can follow orders, and solve logical problems, they are creatively bankrupt. As such, if Vance orders him to do anything that requires lots of creativity, such as painting a picture or convincing people to vote for him as class president, they will usually fail horribly, and occasionally crumble into dust.

    Weapon: Jean uses martial arts combined with serpents he grafts on to his body. He also carries a bottle with a pint full of crushed, dried leaves with him so he can create Vetala.
    Skills: Jean knows some martial arts, and he's also got excellent penmanship.
