Humanum Familiares (OOC/SU)
SUs Have been REOPENED!
(This is the OOC thread, the IC thread is here)
Rated PG16 for Romance and Violence as well as mild language on occasion
The ancient texts quote the name of familiar as a living being, usually a magical creature, who is to be a mages life-long servant, however it also quotes familiars as having the power to unlock the true feelings of the mages who gain the title of their master. A true familiar is more friend then servant.
quoted from a history of magic, by prof. P. Awenston
You wake up with a smile on your face as you momentarily forget what today is, upon realising such you turn around and bury your head in your pillow, this is your second year at school at the Tristein Academy and today is the day you summon your familiar.
Your not the best student in school, you try your hardest but you just can't seem to get the hang of it, most of your classmates have mastered at least one of the four elements... you however have not and can barely cast a spell without blowing your classroom to bits. You know that if you mess up today it's permanent, you can't reverse what happens and if you summon something pathetic as your familiar that is what your stuck with... forever.
You see your small group of friends as you head down the spiral staircase, the only other kids in school who are as bad at magic as you are... you talk a bit and decide it will be less frightening if you walk down together.
You walk through the halllway and hear some of the more advanced students snickering and mocking you.
You leave the hallway and go outside to the grounds where your teacher waits with the rest of your class. You watch as your classmates summon wonderous creatures, slamanders, imps and even a dragon by one particularly talented boy.
Times up. Its you and your friends turn to summon, you ask to all do it at once and your request is accepted. You raise your wands and begin to chant the spell you have been taught to summon your familiar, whatever it may be.
Large explosions erupt from your wands leaving a large ammount of smoke, once its cleared you suddenly realise that sitting right in front of you and each of your friends is...is a... commoner of the opposite gender! You and you friends have summoned commoners as your familiars..... this is worse than summoning toads. You grimace as everone around begins to lauch at you and the confused commoner looks around in terror, they're wearing strange clothes that don't look like something that even a commoner would wear, you glare at them with anger and desperately beg your teacher to allow you a second chance. He refuses, saying that that would be an insult to the ceremony and insists that you complete a contract with the commoner. You grimace and walk over to the commoner kneeling down and leaning over them. They look at you like your crazy and try to escape but you quickly jump in and kiss them completing the contract. You stand up and wipe your lips in disgust as the brand of the familiar is burned into the commoners hand and they scream in pain, eventually passing out. It is done, this commoner is your familiar, your magical servant for life, they would have to do whatever you wanted them to, everything from doing your washing to preparing your bed. Your friends it seems have had the same ammount of luck and in shame you bow your heads and drag your familiars back to your respective rooms.
A bed of hay rests by your bedside, you had prepared this for your familiar so it would have to do for now. You dump the body in the straw and wait for your new familiar to awaken. This was so strange this had never happened before. Were you so bad a mage that this... commoner showed up instead of the valiant creature you were expecting? You sigh, it had happened now and it was final, this thing was your familiar.
You wake up one morning and decide to go for a stroll, nothing out of the ordinary just a small walk, little did you know you weren't comming back... You say hello to the people who live in your neighbourhood on the way. There nice enough folk, never really been bad to you. You pass the school, *thank god its the weekend.* you think, you proceed on your way into the marketplace of your respective town or village and go to buy some groceries.
As you leave the market you see a large green oval shape before you. It pulses a wonderful pale green light over your surroundings, but the strange thing is nobody else seems to be able to see it.
You decide to investigate further but as soon as you take one step closer to the oval an invisible hand begins to drag you forward, you drop your groceries and cry for help but it's like no one knows your there.
You get closer and closer to the light and eventually you start going into it, you reach your hand out and let loose one final cry of dismay as your dragged through.
Suddenly you find yourself floating above a large cloud of smoke, you fall inside and land sitting down as the smoke clears.
You find yourself sitting in front of a person of the opposite gender whos pointing a wooden stick at you...
Suddenly the person glares at you and everyone around begins to laugh, you notice a few others in the same situation as you. You look around... you have no idea where you are. Suddenly after discussing something with an elderly man the person comes over and kneels in front of you, they suddenly lean forward and begin to move in for ...... a kiss? You panic and are about to pull away when the person gets you square on the lips you should have pushed them off you immediately but something takes control of you and you just take the kiss like nothing happened.
You suddenly feel a burning sensation in your hand, it starts off with just a sting but soon you find yourself screaming in pain, letters that look like some sort of ancient runes are appearing on your hand and by the time you finish you pass out to the sounds of mocking laughter.
You awaken to find yourself on a pile of straw, your hand still stings slighlty and you look around your surroundings, you see a bed to your left, a window on the far wall, a dresser and a chair beside said dresser which had the sleeping romantic assaulter from before sitting upon it.
You look to your left and see what you were looking for, a door. You attempt to open it but... drats its locked you hear shuffling behind you and turn around to see the person on the chair glaring at you with a mix of disapointment and anger.
A single man watches from the shadows, he sees the human familiars and smirks with delight, it would soon be the time for his plans to begin but... his interest was peaking, he wanted to see these mages struggle with their new familiars. Then he would begin his true plans, and the void clock would be set in motion.
You: You are either a mocked mage who summoned a non-magic commoner as your familiar or a hapless human from Earth who was sucked into a world where you don't belong and are then forced to be a magicians protector and slave, a familiar.
1: If you like you may join the RP with a partner as Mage and Familiar, however a word of advice, familiars are always the opposite gender of their masters.
2: If you come alone then you will be randomly matched with a partner.
3: Bunnying/ Godmodding is not aloud.
4: If your partner is not online for a certain ammount of time you may PM me and I will tell you the various options you have at that point.
5. There may or may not be more open slots available as the RP progresses it will all depend on the RPs popularity.
6:No Mary-sues or Gary-stues or wahtever they're called these days, in other words no perfect characters.
7: Mages will start off with very little/no abilities and will be basically humans with a wand. However you may learn new skills and spells as the RP progress'.
8: The five schools of magic are, Air, Earth, Fire, water and void. Players will be able to learn any of the first four through the progression of the RP, but not all at once and ue to its overpowered nature void cannot be learned, further detail below.
9: The main focus of this RP is the relationship and developement of Mage and Familiar. So go nuts, hate each other, love each other, romance, anger, your choice. Mages may be cruel and harsh towards their familiar or nice and sweet and everything in between. Familiars can either obey their masters with out question or flat out refuse to do what they're told and again everything in between so just mmake it up as you go along.
10: If a partner of the opposite gender cannot be found you may if you wish make your partner an NPC or simply wait for someone else to join.
11: Being as active as possible is very important in this kind of RP.
12:Whereas Mages have to learn their powers as they go, Familiars will automatically learn abilities as they are made familars how you discover you have thes abilities is up to you, further detail below.
13: Mages know what Earth is but regard it as an alternate reality or a fairytale world.
14: Familiars are still people and still have free will, they're just magically bonded to their masters. So they don't HAVE to follow their masters orders however this is not always ideal as.....
15: Should a familiar disobey orders mages are aloud to use whatever means neccesary to punish them. This can range from kicking them out of your room, to depriving them of a room, to downright attacking them with a whip or a sword or their magic, or anything they can think of. So if Familiars still want to disobey be my guest...
16: When a Familiar wants something, eg. a new weapon, then they must have their master buy t for them. How this is done is up to you. Note: At the beginning of the RP Familiars will recieve a basic weapon that will be given near the beginning of the RP.
17: Have Fun!
A mages magic:
Fire: The ability to control and create fire.
Wind: The ability to control and intensify wind.
Earth: The ability to manipulate solid Earth aswell as various metals and ores.
Water: The ability to manipulate and freeze water.
Void: Extreme power to engulf and destroy enemies in a blast of white light, can also turn the user into a demonic and uncontrolable dark creature if used without constraint very difficult and weakening to the user and is not recomended to be used by a player, if the player wishes to use void magic then I must be quite impressed by their SU
A Familiars skills:
Volo: Dramatically increased running speed and reflexes.
Robur: Enhanced strength in dire situations.
Nocte Radiis: Severely enhanced agility and stength during the night.
Perceptio: The ability to see an opponents weakness when engaged in combat.
Psychicae Nectunt: Allows you to sense when your master is in trouble and grants enhanced combat abilitys when fighting with them.
Remedium: Has the ability to heal themselves and others to a certain extent.
A note on Gandalfr core: In the Rps world human familiars are known by extremely wise individuals by their proper name Gandalfr Gandalfr core is the raw extent of a familiars power and is highly powerful and unstable. It activates a magical energy that reflects he colour of the users aura by covering the user in a glow of the same colour. At an extremely powered up level it alows the user the use some of its mages magic in its core. Eg. If your Gandalfr cores colour is silver and your master uses fire magic then the familiars magic will be silver flames. The true power of Gandalfr core is to be used sparingly in the RP at all times. Gandalfr core also drains both mage and familiar to their lowest energy levels.

Oh, look, an OOC thread, I was wondering when this would pop up. XD
:p well it here now so post any out of character questions, SUs and anything else generally related to the RP other than proper posts here.
Does that mean I should post my SU here? The already accepted one? XD
Nnrrrrgggghjjjjjhhhhshshshwgehdjdudjsjejr I want to post already but my partner is being all nrgh and disappearing and stuff. :(
Who is your partner? There is one person who quit...
Xilfer is meant to be my partner but idk where he is.
In any case;
Recap of Important events so far:
Ugh I'm lagging behind... -_-
If me and Lydia are gonna be on at the same time I'm gonna go on a posting spree!
Some stuff regarding NPCs:
As some of you may have noticed there are some major NPCs coming into the RP now (Emil, Benjamin, Adriel and Leonda to be precise.) So Im just going to go into further detail about this.
ALL NPCs may be bunnied SLIGHTLY some NPCs can be bunnied heavily but the current four main NPCs are only to be bunnied lightly. Eg. Small peices of conversation, actions etc. If I think the way you represented the character in your post, is uncharacteristic/ effects the story drasticaly, you will have to edit your post. These four main NPCs are like player characters only slightly less advanced and suitable to be lightly bunnied
Other middle class NPCs (Eg. The headmaster, Tristeins teachers etc.) can be bunnied fully, unless its something totally ridiculous like the headmaster randomly jumping out a window, then I will allow.
Then there is your normal NPC (eg. student, random commoner etc. etc.) and you know what to do with them.
I like to think that giving a character a theme song really helps express that characters emotions, so I have decided to give my own character and the Major NPCs themes, I would also love to hear you're characters themes so poat them if you like :)
Main Character themes:
Theme of Joshua David Mist
Theme of Adria Marie Penrose
Theme of Kiroku Morir
Theme of Cody Willingham
Theme of Primeria Sage
Benjamins Theme (The best part is at the end)
Theme of the King of Germania
Theme of the Chaos Heart
Theme of Tristein
Theme of Germania
Theme of Tristein Academy
Theme of Elder Dragon Scythe, Weapon of Death
Please feel free to discuss and ask about the prementioned topics.
I listened to this and thought of Adria
Wow, this makes me flashback to my mod days. xD
I'm bored so (and I just got back)... judging from the main thread, there are some open slots... is it possible to join? *grits teeth* (Hurray for a transfer student?)
You would have to do a LOT of catching up, though. xD
You know what the sad thing is? I've been here since the start and I have a lot of catching up to do :(
I have plenty of free time, I am just without a partner. ):
D: Oh really? Care to have an official one? xD
Name: Michael Derek Beleren
History: Michael Derek Beleren was born eighteen years ago in much the same way as everyone else. At that day his parents were happy and counted themselves lucky to have a son after their last catastrophic loss of a child. They lived happily in Tristein for most of their lives; they often took vacations elsewhere, but never moved more than a couple of blocks. Michael’s mother and father were accomplished mages, not ones that made history books, but ones that managed to become the best they could. Their two eldest children were on their way to becoming accomplished mages themselves, and by the time Michael was enrolled in Tristein Academy, his eldest sister Paige had long since graduated and his second eldest brother Declan was in his last year of the Academy.
Michael had grown up in the shadow of his siblings, their accomplishments coming before he could even make his own. Being somewhat of a late bloomer, he was always eclipsed by the shadows of his siblings, hardly ever achieving something that they hadn’t or quicker than they had. More often than not he would get told to be like his older brother and sister, and to look up to them as they were “perfect examples” for him. After years of trying to be better than them, he gave up and began progressing at his own pace; much to the disappointment of his parents and anger of his teachers.
Upon entering into Tristein Academy, Michael again faced the same shadows that he had sought to elude during his childhood. Teachers looked upon him with disappointment when he did not achieve something his siblings had done long ago. Not that he gave a care; he was fine going along at his own pace. This attitude allowed Michael to barely scrape into the second year; where he was the only one pleased to be in the second year, his family were disappointed with his grades. Michael tried his best, but it started to seem that the harder he tried to be like his siblings, the more of a mess he made. So he gave up trying to do his best and just be….average. At that point, he failed less.
Physical: The thing most people acknowledge when they see Michael is his blonde streaked hair. Naturally a dark blonde bordering on brown, his hair is most often considered “dirty” blonde however the blonde streaks in his hair make it look somewhat lighter. Of course, the streaks aren’t natural, so to maintain the colour, he gets his hair streaked about two to three times a year. Soft to the touch naturally, his hair falls slightly over his ears and just obscures his eyebrows while it lightly touches the collar of any collared shirts he wears. Behind a pair of thin framed glasses are the biggest anomaly of Michael; his eyes. Due to a lack of pigmentation in his irises, Michael’s eye colour changes constantly. Michaels build is toned and refined, the outlines of his muscles showing, even propping out a bit, but not bulging masses. He has somewhat 'thin' fingers, better used for dealing with electronics or getting into nooks and crannies, but also good for typing on keyboards, but made holding a wand kind of awkward.
Clothing: Michael's wardrobe is not one full of many colourful clothes. Partially due to his slight inability to see the full spectrum of colours, but also due to the fact that black, white and grey are the easiest colours to blend together, his wardrobe consists of many clothes in these shades. As far as shirts go, Michael wears a plain dark grey long-sleeved shirt beneath a buttoned black shirt. Many of his clothes contain no brands, slogans or pictures, since Michael prefers the plain colours which allow him to blend in more. Over top of his grey shirt is an unbuttoned black shirt that has long sleeves as well and a thin hood which he let's sit over top of the black leather jacket he wears often. When it gets cold, Michael will button up his shirt then zip up his leather jacket, but never does he pull up the hood of his shirt - a little quirk he has.
Due to the paleness of his legs when contrasted to the rest of his, Michael prefers to wear pants. On quite formal occasions, he will wear a pair of straight cut jeans, and in casual occasions, his jeans are boot cut. His preference for these two sizes being that he can move his legs more, in case the time for defence was needed, or so he could run away. On a more personal side, he dislikes the comfort and feel of 'tighter' cut jeans. Apart from jeans, he does possess several pairs of black pants as well as black work pants alongside a couple of pairs of cargo pants, however these pare mostly in varying shades of grey. He also has a pair of black parachute pants, something he does not wear often, yet still likes to wear.
As far as shoes go, he wears a pair of black leather work shoes, which he finds annoying and uncomfortable; however they are part of the uniform for his work. When not working, he wears either a dark brown pair or black pair of cross trekkers, all dependant on what he his wearing at the time. To suit the colour scheme, all his socks are white, black or grey.
As far as accessories go, Michael wears a silver analogue watch on his right hand, despite being right handed. A pointed labret piercing points jut from below his lip in the centre; his one and only piercing. Not really an accessory as such, but he does have a tattoo of a combined yin-yang Pisces tattoo on his left shoulder, something that is a reminder of his star sign, but also his believe in the yin-yang ideal.
The most dominant feature of Michael’s personality is his lack of self-motivation and inability to care about what he is doing. Due to being almost constantly eclipsed by his older siblings and pushed to achieve things at the same pace they did, and failing in doing so, he has given up trying to keep up with and beat them, now preferring to work and grow at his own pace. If a challenge is too difficult, Michael will not hesitate to give up or run away; seeing it as beyond his ability. Michael likes best to “go with then flow”, instead of fighting against the current, he will let it take him places in his own and its own time, and there is no rush. He would prefer to take his time and work on something than rush headlong into it; thinking things through before acting. He prefers to stand back and analyse then get close up and fight.
Somewhat socially awkward, he has very few friends, mainly due to his ability to freely speak his mind without hesitation and worry for the others person’s feelings. If he does not like someone, then he will state it; something most people are not use to and find spiteful. In all honesty, Michael prefers to be honest and speak his mind, as to him it means that he does not have to keep up lies. It is easier to make enemies than friends; and Michael cares not for how many friends or enemies he has, he just wants to get through life.
Another ability of Michael’s seems to be his ability to disregard the opinions of others, especially when they concern him. This makes it hard for bullies to get to him, and for people to insult him which turns many people away from him. Rather than confronting him face on, they will talk behind their backs and glare at him from afar. However, this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t get bullied. His inability to care means that many students like to play pranks on him. His older brother has on more than one occasion tried to step in, but after so many attempts, he gave up, letting Michael work it on his own; how Michael liked it from the beginning.
Most people would describe Michael as Apathetic, but it is not like he doesn’t care, he still has emotions, it’s that he tries not to let the emotions gain control of him and also he disregards what they say and do. The reason he does this is that when Michael gets overcome by his emotions, he loses control, and usually destruction ensues. By being calm, collected and going with the flow, he prevents the destruction from happening.
Michael does have a caring and soft side to him. When he wants to be, Michael can care greatly for things, most of the time his family’s familiars and pets; this caring even extends to the point where he would be protective of it, throwing himself in harm’s way to protect it. Anything that he has a close connection to, he will protect and try to keep out of the way of harm, but this is not to the point where he is overbearing. If something freely puts itself in harm’s way, of its own free will, he will refrain from trying to save it.
Magic School: Water
Time Spent RPing: Depends, mostly when I can, so Medium, but I do have major Assignments and Assements for University and a Job that prevent me from RPing, but I also have free time to RP.
ICHIRO YOU ARE A CHAMPION <3
雷影 イチロ you are accepted! You will have to be something like a late summon or a transfer student from a land with no familiars, but I'll leave that up to you.
