Story Magic Rules OC Form and Characters In all of recorded history, humans have possessed powerful magical abilities. This was not always so however. Before this, godlike beings walked amongst the mortals. Humans were weak, ignorant, and lived pathetic short lives. The immortals felt pity for the humans and thus enlightened them with the gift of magic. This was the last time they were ever seen on the world of the living. History books now simply refer to these immortal beings as “Mystics” as their true name has been long forgotten. Humans called the world they lived in “Fa’Diel”. As years passed they formed colonies, colonies formed territories, and territories formed countries. Through countless wars the number of independent countries shrunk until there were just three separated by unclaimed territory. These countries were called Wendel, Lorima, and Tasnica. Even when just three world powers remained, the three countries clashed several times over the coming centuries with devastating wars that would leave no victor. Exactly three millennia ago marks the end of the last and most catastrophic war in Fa’Diel’s history. During that war Tasnica was completely wiped off the face of the world. After those events, Wendel and Lorima agreed to a truce to avoid having their own countries destroyed as a result of war. The details of Tasnica’s destruction were left out of all known records of the war. Tasnica Nothing is left of the former country but its capitol which is simply named “Tasnica”. After the truce between Lorima and Wendel was made, an agreement was reached to restore Tasnica’s capitol and erect the most prestigious school of magic Fa’Diel had ever seen. The best and brightest of Lorima’s and Wendel’s population were to be educated as this new academy. If even a small portion of their children were raised together, then the new generation of adults would be more tolerant of each other and war would never happen again. As time passed, this proved to be a brilliant idea and even today the academy is still in use. Tasnica’s Academy of Magic sits at the very center of the restored capitol, reminding everyone of the peace they have achieved. Those who live in the city are extremely wealthy and consider themselves to not be a part of either Lorima nor Wendel. Lorima Though both countries have advanced technologically over the course of time, Lorima has made the greatest strides in the fields of science and employs a great deal of machinery in their military. Weapons used by Lorima’s military are often projectile-based. The military exists not for warfare, but to fend off Fa’Diel’s highly dangerous monsters that roam outside of civilization. Transportation is done through an extensive railway system. Lorima is an extremely urban area where most jobs are based on research on either magic or technology. This does not make them soft or any less involved with magic however. Technology is not used as a substitute for magic in Lorima. Those from Lorima are respected in Wendel for their intelligence and compassion. Wendel The military Wendel possesses is several times larger than Lorima’s due to the fact many graduates from magic schools are often chosen to become officers. Those coming from Tasnica’s academy are usually the first in line to be chosen. Due to the sheer size of their military however, their training is far from what would be considered to be strict. Wendel is home to dragons that have evolved to become used in everyday life by their military. These dragons do not breathe fire, as the trait was bred out of domestic dragons due to their habit of setting things on fire as young dragons so often do. Those from Wendel are respected in Lorima for their strength and kindness. Today Every year since the last war has been celebrated on the anniversary of its end. On the 3000th anniversary, the leaders of both Lorima and Wendel will arrive at the rebuilt capitol of Tasnica for the festivities. Students at Tasnica’s Academy of Magic and those living in the city will have a front row seat to the celebration. Magic Everyone born in Lorima and Wendel has been able to use magic. All known magic comes in one of five forms. Branches: Σlemental - Those born with this branch of magic have the gift to control five of the natural elements. Fire, earth, wind, water, and lightning are all at the disposal of those with this power. Most who are born with this ability are proficient with one or two elements. Only the most elite can hope to truly master all five elements. Ͼonjuration - Being born with this ability allows one to summon the elements of light and darkness to aid them. With the power of light, a Conjurer can heal the wounds of an ally or restore the strength to one filled with fatigue. With light, constructs can be made to serve various purposes with the only limit being the caster’s creativity and strength. The powers of darkness can be used for instantaneous travel as long as the Conjurer can reach a shadow to travel through. Those of greater skill have been known to possess the ability to turn invisible at will. ₱sychokinesis - This branch of magic offers powers of the mind. Psychokinetics have telekinesis, the ability to move objects with their mind. Those with sufficient power and training are able to move living beings with this power and those who are more advanced have been able to achieve flight. Those born with this power have a heightened affinity to sensing magic, being able to pick out an exact location of a specific person miles away. Telepathy is also included in this branch of magic. Though some of the most powerful Psychokinetics have been able to read minds of others, this ability is so rare that it has not become illegal though it is looked down upon by many. Ϩhapeshifting - When a child is born, it is impossible to determine which branch of magic they have born into until he or she first uses magic. Magic is not genetic. Two possessing elemental powers will not necessarily have a child that shares their power. Those born with this ability however are easily identifiable. Children have little control of their powers and as such, Shapeshifters are almost always born with animalistic traits as they are unable to control their transformations. Shapeshifters can turn into any animal they desire or even partially if they choose to do so. Those with enough mastery over their power can permanently have heightened physical senses. This power also grants Shapeshifters the ability to control animals they run across and, with practice, even monsters as well as plant-life. Those with little control of their power however can often find it hard to stay...completely human. This leaves young Shapeshifters exposed to a great deal of bullying if they have little control of their own power. βiokinesis - The polar opposite of Psychokinesis. Whereas Psychokinesis is a power of the mind, Biokinesis is a power of the body. Those with this ability are naturally stronger, faster, and more durable than those with powers of the other branches of magic. Those with sufficient training are able to further enhance their abilities, multiplying them for devastating strength. Within Wendel, one elite master of this power has achieved the highest peak on record with the ability to multiply his strength up to 50 times. Advanced practitioners tend to “max out” at around 20 times their base strength. Going higher than 20 often proves fatal while anything above 10 provides a great deal of strain on the body. Notes: 1. Magic causes fatigue. Use of magic that is beyond the level of the caster will either incapacitate or kill the caster. 2. Magic can be sensed through a person’s aura, an invisible representation of their power. An aura can be consciously controlled in order to hide one’s presence or true power. Those with a massive amount of power have a visible aura, the color of which depends on the person. Exceptionally strong people can be sensed farther away. 3. Magic is not limited to what a person is born with. Many forms magic can be used through either incantations or ritualistic spells. Nonhuman creatures often have their own variations of magic that are not found in humans. Rules 1. KHV’s regular rules apply. That’s a given. 2. No Godmodding/Power Playing. 3. Obviously, you can’t kill someone’s character without their permission. 4. You can have up to three characters max. 5. If I see everyone joining for a specific branch of magic, I’ll make sure to troll you. Try to spread out evenly! There is no “best” branch of magic. 6. Keep it PG-13. Anything further should be either rare or taken elsewhere. 7. I will break my own rules when I need to. Sometimes the plot is just more important! 8. I will kill your characters off if you are gone for two weeks without telling me that you can’t post. “I can’t think of anything to post” is not an excuse! There will be no warnings. You are free to join with new characters however. 9. You will be ignored if you don’t post within a week. Anything your characters will have been doing will be dropped. 10. You’ll notice a “weapon” space in the OC forms below. Your characters will not start with that weapon. They will be given later in the RP. 11. Following rule 10, no gunblades or buster swords. 12. I reserve the right to add or modify my rules at any time. THIS IS ARCH’S RULE. 13. Bio’s are hard to make sometimes. I just don’t want everyone to be orphans. Get creative! Have your character be related to a rich person from Tasnica! Or the child of one of the two leaders! Just think of something that’d fit into the world and work with it! 14. Don’t be afraid to contact me if you have any questions. If you need help making your OCs then come to me! Also, don't be intimidated by the fact that there's already several people registered! I'm always going to accept OCs! 15. Unless I give you permission, all OCs will be students in the Tasnica Academy of Magic. Also, post the OCs here! 16. Posts must be 10 or more lines in length.

As there is no wars to fight, as there hasn’t been in 3000 years, this has been his job for most of his life. Currently, he is an elite officer tasked with protecting Wendel’s own leader during the festivities at Tasnica. Taras is a man of little words and to those who work under him, he is a strict but fair commander. These days however, there seems to be more on his mind than his duties. Branch of Magic: Biokinesis Weapon: None Other: Taras is one of the most powerful masters of Biokinesis to date. Username: Aiden Pearce Name: Nadine Fay Gender: Female Age: 30 Appearance: Nadine Home: Lorima Bio: A teacher at Tasnica’s academy.

With the anniversary of the war’s end already arriving, she has grown distant from her students. Branch of Magic: Psychokinesis Weapon: None Other: Everyone’s favorite teacher. Username: (╯°□°）╯︵ ıɥsoɯ Name: Grace ‘Gingerbuck’ Cassardis Gender: Female Age: 16 Appearance: http://i774.photobucket.com/albums/yy23/AnimeGirl10129/AnimeMagicalGirl.jpg Home: Wendel Bio: Daughter of the leader of Wendel, Grace has always strived to become the best with her magic despite being so young and ‘delicate’. Though she had struggled from a young age, she pushed herself to become one of the top of her classes. However, in doing so, it had a great impact on her personality, causing her to believe she is in a life of fantasy far more drastic than the world she lives in. At times, she runs around in different costumes, chanting and carrying various objects and refers to herself as Gingerbuck. She also believes herself to be an only child even with two younger brothers and a sister, and is said to be a Daddy’s girl, doing mostly anything he request and getting spoiled rotten. But despite this, she is nice to mostly everyone and really hard-working when it comes to being serious. Branch of Magic: Biokinesis Weapon: Bisentō Other: Believes Kendric to be her ultimate rival and tries many tactics of ‘fake’ magic in order to defeat him. Username: (╯°□°）╯︵ ıɥsoɯ Name: Ayer Granz Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: http://i.imgur.com/JaH4PwA.jpg?1 Home: Tasnica Bio: Though coming from a poor family and working most his young life, Ayer had discovered his magical abilities when out doing some yard work. Shortly after, he had been discovered by chance and sent off to the academy. He is normally very focused on his training and teaching, but has a happy-go-lucky attitude towards his friends and loves having fun on his free time. Even though most of his friends are girls, he is very respectfully towards them from having nothing but sisters in his family. He knows very well that he may not be at the top of his class or a master but still does his best and enjoys learning new techniques to better master his element. Branch of Magic: Elemental[Water & Lightning] Weapon: Shaolin Spade Other: He is more skilled with water and lighting than most other elements, but drives to better himself at the other 3 as well.

She is very dedicated to her work and so is known to be very strict, some on the students dreading to be in her class. But others, males mainly, enjoy her looks and how she dresses most of the time. Although her teaching methods may be considered unorthodox, she gets many students who pass her course, causing her pride to grow even more and think herself better than some other teachers. Even with her mastery of elements, she can still be found practicing them around the campus when she has free time or using it as example or discipline in class. Other than that, she can seem quite cold at times, making people to believe she could be bipolar. Branch of Magic: Conjuration Weapon: N/A Other: Can be kind at times, if you figure out how to get on her good side.

Zillia is caring and acts like a mother figure to some of her friends. She is at the top of her class when it comes to magic, but still nowhere near that of a master.

DECEASED - Killed by Sarah Username: Nilin Name: Albina "Abi" Kegan Gender: Female Age: 17 Appearance: Here Home: Tasnica Bio: Her family has been living in Tasnica as far back as their records show and thus they consider themselves from the survivors of the war, even if their family turns out to have moved there after it had ended. Therefore they care little for the other countries, maybe even to the point of resentment, though never speak of this in public. Albina hardly cares for this though, keeping her focus on school rather than family affairs. She's a bright student and despite not being advanced she is still proud of her skill, though has no idea what she wishes to do with it in the future. In fact she has no plans or wishes at all, forcing her to focus solely on the present. Branch of Magic: Conjuration Weapon: N/A Other: N/A Username: cstar Name: Meara Ward Gender: Female Age: 16 Appearance: Here Home: Lorima Bio: Meara was raised for the first half of her life by her father who was a shape-shifter who, although calmed down by Meara's mother, lost his ability to control his human side after her death. Meara self taught herself Earth abilities at her younger age to help track down her father who turned into the form of a wolf. When she was taken in by her uncle at age 6, she experimented with water based abilities, which she found much more enjoyable and relaxing. Due to her background she is more accepting of differences and things deemed "Strange" and tends to have a more layed back and friendly persona. However, if she does not like a person, she makes it clear she does not like them. Kindly or not. Branch of Magic: Elemental[Earth & Water] Weapon: N/A Other: Although human, she adapted some wolf-like skills from when she was younger. Her sense of smell tends to be stronger and she can see in the dark almost immediately when light is put out. However, she tends to shun herself for animal-like instincts she received before age six. Username: D i n n y Name: Celeste Abelard Gender: female Age: 17 Appearance: Here Home: Wendel Bio: The Abelard family is a family known to be great contributors and warriors to the Wendel military. The entire family is trained especially well in combat. Their magical abilities always compliment and come second to their combat - great biokinetic individuals are famous for being Abelards. Also, as great military leaders. Celeste's uncle was elected to be an officer almost immediately upon graduating from the academy. She has the same dream. She wishes to join the army after she graduates. However, her magical ability may hinder her from doing so. Celeste is the first Abelard to ever have Shapeshifting abilities. Though incredibly skilled in combat, she fails with her control in her magic almost completely. Celeste beats herself up about it constantly and often gives up on magic. Aside that, she is kind, slightly laid-back and enjoys company.

Afterwards he was adopted by the Academy of Magic’s then headmaster before enrolling himself. Alastair was once a bright and curious person but after witnessing his father’s murder and his mother’s escape he became quiet and secluded as he studied to control his magic and figure out where his mother went after she escaped, he has speculated that she went to the location of her last major breakthrough, though she is the only one who knows its location, for the moment. Alastair usually keeps to himself but is capable to opening up to others if they gain his trust. Branch of Magic: Elemental[Water & Wind] Weapon: A handgun and combat knife.

DECEASED - Killed by Taras Username:The Hero of Time Name: Luna Gender: Female Age: 16 Appearance: Click Home: Tasnica Bio: The youngest of 3 sisters, Luna is the most cheery. Her sisters have done all they can to preserve her innocence, because they know if she ever discovered what caused their father's death, it would drive her insane. Luna is always there for her friends, and her priorities are really mixed up. Even if she gets in trouble, she doesn't mind as long as her friends make it out okay. This has led many people to take advantage of her kindness. Luna also really loves flowers. Branch of Magic: Conjuration Weapon: Staff Other: "Even if I get in trouble, as long as my friends are okay, I'll be okay too." DECEASED - Killed by Taras Username: The Hero of Time Name: Angela Gender: Female Age: 18 Appearance: Click Home: Tasnica Bio: Angela is the middle of three sisters, and therefore tries to keep the order. Her older sister, Julia, is lazy and cruel, while Luna, her younger sister, is just a naive child. She shows the most maturity, and takes her job protecting Luna very seriously. As opposed to her younger sister's many friends (whom she hates because they take advantage of her kindness), she has one. When Julia attempted to kill Luna, it was Angela's idea to keep what happened that day a secret. Branch of Magic: Elemental[Water & Fire] Weapon: Gun (specifically the one in her picture) Other: "I look after Luna because I want to, not because I have to." DECEASED - Killed by Nadine Username: The Hero of Time Name: Julia Gender: Female Age: 19 Appearance: Click Home: Tasnica Bio: Julia, the oldest of 3 sisters, is the opposite of what you'd expect. Being her father's obvious favorite, she blames Luna for his death and hates her littlest sister. Julia is manipulative, lazy, and overall plain cruel. She finds it hysterical when her youngest sister's friends ditch her, and finds it even more hysterical that Angela only has one friend. Julia has no friends, because to her they're a waste of time. You go to school with them, graduate, and sometimes never see each other again. Julia tried to kill Luna when their father died, but Angela stopped her, claiming that Luna was just a baby and she'd learn to control her magic eventually. Branch of Magic: Psychokinesis Weapon: Whip Other: "It's a cruel world out there, what can you do except survive?"

Home: Wendel Bio: When Sophia was born, her magical ability was immediately apparent. Different things around the room she was born in were being lifted and thrown left and right. Her parents had a very challenging experience trying to take care of Sophia as a baby, due to her Psychokinesis constantly breaking or throwing things. Luckily, during her toddler years, she quickly gained control over her powers, perfecting them more and more as she grew older. While Sophia has always been intelligent in almost every field, her main strengths computers and technology. This is mainly due to her parents working in some of Wendel's most prestigious technological science labs, which Sophia has been to many times over the years. Her experiences at the labs, plus her own personal research, has given her a vast knowledge on tech-related subjects. However, she rarely steps foot outside unless it's for school-related reasons. Not due to shyness, but due to having more interest in expanding her knowledge than making friends. Despite that, Sophia has made one friend, one she holds very close to her. Branch of Magic: Psychokinesis Weapon: None Other: N/A Username:jackdaniel0 Name: Poke Gender: Male Age: 17 Appearance: This is his waist-up.

She even created many fancy gadgets and trinkets growing up. Her parents were both wealthy and influential in the Lorima government, but she doesn't use that as an excuse to act arrogant. At a young age, she was once kidnapped and used as a hostage for a large sum of money, but was rescued with no harm. This gave Mya to have an extreme fear of people taller than her and shady looking people. She then was taught to use firearms, but Mya was an extreme pacifist, even if her life was at stake. Her parents now always track her with a wireless sensor to makes sure she isn't missing every time she goes out of the house for any reason. Branch of Magic: Conjuration Weapon: A nuclear missile than can end the fate of humanity as we know it A simple Handgun Other: Being extremely fearful of like 80% of the population, she always has a stance like she's about to run away when talking to someone she doesn't recognize. Username: Marushi Name: Alayah Crowfest Gender: female Age: 16 Appearance: Here. Home: Tasnica Bio: Alayah and her twin brother Rogan come from a very old family of Mages, The family of Crowfest have lived in Tasnica for many generations and are prominent members of society. Alayah enjoys the prestige, but feels she must prove her worth as a Crowfest. She is outgoing and friendly, but not obnoxiously so, and she is proud. Branch of Magic: Elemental (She specializes in lightning, but practices using wind) Weapon: A handgun made of a specially engineered material, which focuses magical energy and charges the bullets with the infused energy. Since Alayah is an Elemental Mage, the bullets can be charged with electrical energy. Other: N/A Username: Marushi Name: Rogan Crowfest Gender: male Age: 16 Appearance: Here. Home: Tasnica Bio: Rogan, although born to the family of Crowfest, never cared much for being in the public eye. He instead prefers to keep to himself; he has more control over his Shapeshifting abilities if he is in a small group as opposed to large crowds. He prefers to let Alayah be in the limelight; her Elemental powers make her more “acceptable” to the family. Yet, he sometimes feels a little jealous of her abilities, and feels that he got the raw end of the deal as far as magic goes. He is friendly, but quiet, and tries to take a calm approach to everything. He is more likely to transform if he is stressed. Branch of Magic: Shapshifting Weapon: A small dagger that retracts at a push of a button, to be used in emergencies. Other: N/A DECEASED - Killed by Tasnican police Username: Kanji Tatsumi Name: Artan Everette Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: Artan has short yet fluffy bright ginger hair with a middle parting, his hair splitting so that it just leaves his eyes in view. However, tilting his head forward can create a full fringe, hiding his eyes completely from view. His eyes are a bright brown colour and he has light freckles underneath them both. Artan’s skin is very fair as he doesn’t go out and prefers to stay indoors mostly. Artan dresses in a green button-down dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, a brown waistcoat and a red bowtie. This is otherwise covered by the baggy cream v-neck jumper he wears. Along with his he wears gray jeans with green trainers. In his pocket, he has a pair of glasses and attached to his belt on a chain is a small pocket mirror. Home: Tasnica Bio: From the capital of Tasnica, Artan grew up in a high-society environment yet never fit in with the other children, leading him to be bullied constantly throughout his life by the children who believed they were better than him. This has led Artan to have constant security and trust issues, often found keeping to himself rather than trying to befriend anyone. Having conjuration abilities, since he had lots of time to himself, he has mastered the aspect of turning invisible, it having helped escape bullies many times. Otherwise, Artan is a rather happy and friendly guy who has a geek passion for any forms of technology and often found tinkering with any forms of electronics he can get his hands on. Strangely enough, Artan is also often found peering at himself in the mirror suspiciously as if he was looking for something other than his reflection. Branch of Magic: Conjuration Weapon: Dual calibre pistols Other: Artan seems to suffer from split personality disorder or at least an extreme case of bipolarism. This is evidenced by how you can be talking to him and he will be happy and nice yet an hour later, he would snap at you and shove you away before storming off. An obvious way to spot the difference is his hairstyle – when he’s his nasty side, his middle parting changes to be on the left of his head. Username: Barakon-King Name: Lucas Di’Marze Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: Twins (On the Right) Home: Wendel Bio: Lucas is one of the Di’Marze twins. Their father is a well-known weapons designer in Wendel and runs a business that works as a supplier to the military. The twins grew up in wealth, but Lucas was always pushed aside by his father in favor of his more athletic and aggressive brother, Berial. Feeling neglected as a youth, Lucas would usually hang around in the poorer sections of Wendel with vagabond children. Feeling a kinship with them, Lucas has preferred more simple living since then and doesn’t partake in most of the luxuries he could. Lucas focuses on his studies and mastering Psychokinesis in hope of gaining his father’s attention. He has a much softer disposition than his brother and seems more desperate for friends. Branch of Magic: Psychokinesis Weapon: Wakizashi Other: N/A Username: Barakon-King Name: Berial Di’Marze Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: Twins (On the Left) Home: Wendel Bio: Berial was always the favorite of the twins’ father because of his proficiency with athletics and his physical strength. Because of his father’s nature as a weapons maker, Berial was always encouraged to become a soldier and has been trained by some of the best swordsmen money could buy. Dismissive of his brother, Berial tries his best to avoid him whenever possible and never mentions him. He seeks to achieve a level beyond the “max output” with Biokinesis one day and as such studies less by reading and more by doing. He has a bit of a sadistic streak, but typically doesn’t speak often. Branch of Magic: Biokinesis Weapon: Engine Sword - This sword is Berial’s father’s dream project. He is allocating a good portion of funds to developing it for Berial. The sword contains an engine that is triggered when its wielder uses Biokinesis. The blade adapts to the increased strength and, corresponding to the level of Biokenisis, vibrates intensely. This gives the blade a “sawing” function. Other: N/A Username: Boy Wonder Name: Zauriel l'Zrael Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: http://s1220.photobucket.com/user/RPBueno/media/ZauriellZrael_zps8b4c0a27.png.html (obviously doesn't always have wings, but keeps his horns constantly). Home: Lorima Bio: Zauriel was born to a secondary branch of the ruling family of Lorima. His family is much lower in status than the actual ruling family and, due to a familial dispute long ago, his direct bloodline has no influence in the government, is disgraced by the main bloodline, and is connected to government only through genetics. When Zauriel was born, his shapeshifting powers were obvious. Even as an infant, he was constantly changing small detials such as his eye color, hair color or length, skin tone, etc. As he grew, he was unable to control his growing powers and often found himself with scales, horns, or even a tail when he did not want to. His parents believed that this meant he had a great source of magical ability that they could one day use to reclaim a prominent role in Lorima's government and sent him to the Academy in order to master his powers. Due to the pressure placed on him, Zauriel actually hates political affairs and the "big picture" and would much rather enjoy himself. He takes joys in little things and has an abstract view on every thing. He is quite hopeful and rarely frowns, but is often tired as he is constantly using bits of magic, unable to turn his shapeshifting "off." Branch of Magic: Shapeshifting Weapon: The sword in the picture. The long hilt is divided into two pieces with one piece actually being a small dagger with the blade housed inside the sword. Other: Zauriel contains an enormous amount of magical potential, but is unable (and semi-unwilling) to control it. He often finds his appearance imitating his environment such as gaining animal traits when he sees an animal or mimicking someone's eye colors, hair style, or skin tone. This gives him less stamina as he is always using magical energy. He is able to shapeshift at will when he wishes, but unable to turn his shapeshifting off completely. If he zones out or fixates on something, his body will imititate its appearance. Username: Boy Wonder Name: Dean Abel Regalis, the Relentless. Gender: Male Age: 43 Appearance: Girl, I know you want this click. Home: Tasnica (currently and originally, but has lived in all three) Bio: A prodigy and magical genius, Abel Regalis is directly descended from the original dean of the academy. As a child, he was shown to be extremely skilled in magic and graduated from the academy early. He was handpicked by Wendel to join their military, but considered it a waste of his powers as there was no real reason for an army since war was now a thing of the past. During these days, he spent his days with Wendel's dragons, preferring to spar with them than with his fellow soldiers as they held more of a challenge. Seeing his potential go to waste in Wendel, however, Abel retired from WARD and moved to Lorima, hoping to help the country with its monster problem. Though he was a powerful soldier, able to lay waste to entire groups of monsters, he was unable to make a change for the better because of the sheer number and power of the monsters. One man, no matter how strong, is still one man. Abel realized that in order to actually make a difference, the world required more than a single man; it required an entire generation. If an entire generation of Fa'Diel's inhabitants could learn to wield their magic as efficiently as himself, there would be no end to the progress man could make. If the same generation considered everyone an ally, there'd be no war and the focus would simply be on bettering the world, such as protecting Lorima from monsters. This epiphany pushed Abel to realize and believe in the Academy that his ancestor helped build. Leaving his life as a soldier behind, Abel Regalis became a teacher at the Tasnica Academy, teaching his students how to effectively use magic like himself. Within a matter of years, he became the Dean (his familial line was definitely an influence). Stories of his magical skill, battle prowess, and strength in battle have earned him the nickname "The Relentless," a title which he holds proudly. However, while regular citizens and the leaders of Lorima and Wendel call him "Relentless" for his power, his students call him "Relentless" for his strict punishments and harsh treatment of juveniles. Branch of Magic: Biokinesis Weapon: A giant, double-sided battle-axe the size of an average man. Its extreme weight requires at least two strong men to carry it, but Dean Regalis can wield it singlehandedly. The axe can also split, giving Regalis a single blade for each hand. Other: N/A Username: Ryou Misaki Name: Xane Tezoth Gender: Male Age: 18 Appearance: Awesome purple-hair Home: Wendel Bio: Xane is the son of an Elemental and Shapeshifter, with Biokinesis abilities. Growing up Xane did not know why he did not get abilities like his parents, but he was able to make use of them. His father trained Xane how to use his magic since he was little, hoping to teach him enough to get him to work in the military when he was older. While his father wasn't famous like other soldiers, he was well known for being kind whenever possible, even stopping to help old citizens take food to their homes. However, Xane did not have the ambition to go into the military that his father wanted him to have; but seeing his father help others out gradually began to make Xane think that he could join for a different reason. He would join the military to fight off beasts, and protect the citizens of Wendel. He wasn't the fastest at learning his Biolinesis, especially since there wasn't anyone around who could use it all that greatly, but he manage to make do with what he had. Eventually Xane managed to fight on equal footing with his dad. What his dad didn't know was that Xane practiced in silence, increasing his skills even further, so that he would be able to fight when necessary. The one problem that Xane felt he had was that his hard training with his father all the time made him different than others. While there were plenty of kids like Xane, for some reason his parents could never figure out why he distanced himself so much. Xane helped other people out, but he never really had the heart to make friends, because he felt like he wasn't good enough to be friends with anyone. So Xane made a deal with himself that he would work as hard as possible to help others at a distance, even with the mental barriers he had created around himself. One day Xane hopes he'll meet someone he can call friend, but that will only happen when he's grown strong enough inside himself. Branch of Magic: Biokinesis Weapon: Katana in picture Other: Xane looks up to the Dean of Tasnica Acadamy, hoping to one day be able to gain his praise.
