I didnt think you sounded mean at all!

Now we need to find a way to get this back on topic as I seem to have derailed the thread once again with my needless worrying/impatience/general bothering of people.

Does anyone have any idea's as to how they are bringing their characters in? I'm assuming most (if not all) non princes/princesses are going to have their characters present at the New Moon Celebrations reacting to the speeches before encountering others. I personally will be starting with Mizushima-san there at least.

Another linked question would be how we stimulate interaction between the classes. For example between someone rp'ing as a common member of the family and one of the princes/princesses. I could of course be taking this too seriously and in this world the class system may be seen as permeable and unimportant (I am under the assumption the families mirror the clans of feudal japan). Just trying to gauge how closely we are mirroring feudal japan here. Im sure Tokushi-san has the answers here but others opinions would be interesting.

Edit: As you can tell im currently drafting my OP!

It seems to me to be the most logical and sensible place to start but i was curious as to whether anyone was doing anything different or just doing something unconventional with the setting of the festival. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Full Name: Chucho Megami
Nicknames: Chew
Sex: Male
Age: 17

Family: Divine Water

Career: Coastal Patrol and Ocean Navigator
Appearance: Chucho is a very tan person as he often spends his time basking in the sun. He has emerald eyes and black hair that is somewhat long (he gets criticised for his hair a lot). When out on the ocean Chucho wears a very loose fitting blue tunic and a sun hat with simple sandals and loose fitting trousers. When off duty he dresses a little bit more formally, with a navy tunic and dress pants. This isn't as formal as most people dress, but Chucho doesn't mind dressing a bit less formally then the others around, even if he stands out.

Personality: Chucho is a very calm, relaxed person who doesn't require many physical items to be happy. His calm demeanor is very difficult to crack. He is a rather quite person, so occasionally people forget he is even around. However, since he is so silent, he can be something of a push over. The only time Chucho really gets involved in a conversation is when talking about the things related to him number one interest; the ocean. Some people have a hard time relating to him because they view him as obsessed with it.

History: Since Chucho was a young child, he had a fascination for the ocean. His Lapras, Serenity, was too small to carry Chucho across the ocean at that age, so he would constantly beg his parents to take him out and see what the ocean had in store. Chucho was a very energetic and noisy child at that age. It was difficult for his parents to say no to him; he would pester them and pester them until they agreed.

However, one night Chucho's and his father went out into the ocean. It was like most any day, with Chucho full of questions and his father trying his best to answer the onslaught. Like always, Serenity was with the two. The young Lapras had become a bit bigger then she was when she was younger, so they were considering to begin training her to take on passengers in the near future. However, Chucho noticed that the Lapras would constantly look up at the sky and back, and she was feeling nervous. Chucho of course felt nervous too, but he didn't want to spoil the trip for them, so he kept quiet about it. Then it happened.

A large wave slammed into the side of the small boat and sent it careening towards a large pile of rocks. They were moving so quickly that Chucho's father only had just enough time to toss his son out of the boat before the boat collided; he believed his son would have a better chance with his Lapras then on the boat. Serenity moved to Chucho's side, and for the first time he climbed on her back. She was a little strained with the extra weight, but she appeared able to carry Chucho's weight around. They both were terrified, and the storm was only getting worse; Serenity was struggling to keep Chucho safe while they desperately searched for his father.

They spotted a limp body floating among the waves of the ocean. They moved up to the form as quickly as they could to discover it was indeed Chucho's father. Serenity did her best to keep Chucho's injured father above the water during the storm, but she was already strained with Chucho's weight, let alone the weight of his father. If someone hadn't spotted them out there in the ocean with their blastoise, they could have all drowned. Chucho's father survived, but the rocks paralyzed him from the waist down. He could no longer walk, and was not fit to go out into the ocean or work anymore.

The experience had done something to Chucho. He became much more quiet and calm. However, where some people might become afraid of the ocean due to that experience, Chucho only became more fascinated. He studied up all there was to know about the world's oceans, and him and Serenity trained long and hard to become experienced sea goers. They learned to respect the nature of things, and to accept and adapt to the flow of things rather then trying to resist the tide.

Skills: He is a skilled navigator and knows a lot about the ocean. He is also a strong swimmer. He is skilled in using a spears and boa staffs.
Flaws: Chucho is no slouch on land, but he clearly has sea legs and works considerably better in and around water. His trident is a powerful weapon, but it is a rather slow weapon, meaning that if he isn't careful he could leave his defense wide open.
Weapon: He often uses a spear with multiple points; essentially a trident. On the hilt a smaller blade is located.

Pokemon: Lapras
Pokemon Name: Serenity
Pokemon Personality: Like Chucho, Serenity is a very calm person. However, she is has been a bit more worrisome then Chucho usually is. She can be very cautious and nervous, and she keeps a watchful eye over those around. Like most Lapras she is very kind and caring, and loves traveling with people on her back and enjoying the sea.

Pokemon History: Her history is mainly the same as Chucho's, however, her experiences with the storm changed her personality in different ways. She also became more timid, but rather then being more relaxed, she has become quite a bit more worrisome. She feels responsible for well being of everyone around, so she has become much more vigilant. One of the only times she can feel truly relaxed is when she is out with Chucho out on the open sea.

Pokemon Specialty: Serenity is very defensive, meaning she can sponge quite a few hits and keep on trucking. She is also quite strong, being able to easily carry heavy loads.

Pokemon Flaws: She can move and fight on land, but her speed is severely reduced. Even in the ocean, she can't move extremely fast compared to most water pokemon. Her moves are reasonably powerful, but lack the punch moves from more offensive pokemon pack.

Proof of Reading: The story begins when a trainer, out of interest, decides to enter a theater. Ladies, alongside the different forms of Evee, were performing. A team rocket grunt attacks the group, and the trainer fights the rocket member with his quilava. When he defeated the grunt, the director of the theatre was pleased with him. The director decides to tell the boy the story of the land of Johto from the days of old.

There are 14 different rules and two maps; one shows Johto before adding in the boundries of the two families, while the other has different colors representing each family's territory; Sacred fire for red, Divine water for blue.
(I wasn't sure how else to prove I read the post.)
Anything Else: I'm seriously surprised that in Divine water that Lapras is the only water type pokemon here. It's odd, though I do like the variety we have going on here.

@Mick Fizz: No need to apologise! I should apologise for how I believe I have come across in my posts! Sorry if i seemed like i was moaning or rushing you at all it really wasnt my intention. I look forward to reading your post and meeting Masashi-san (Or should i perhaps say Densetsu-sama seeing as he is a prince)

@DJYOSH I was also pretty surprised but really the name is less to do with the types of our pokemon and is due to the family leader possessing Lugia. You'll have an easier time reaching the mainland being able to jump on your lapras though!

Please sir, Tokushi is my last name.

Also, the roles are pretty important. Being that really, there's only three levels, (Leader, Trio, Everyone Else) the difference between them is pretty important.

You, sir, are Accepted.

I'd like to point out, the fact that your character is obsessed with the sea, reminds me of pretty much every swimmer character you have to challenge in the Pokemon Games. God I hate those water routes.

I realised Tokushi was your last name but due to the fact we are not particularly familiar i thought it better to err on the side of caution (or in this case politeness) when addressing you. I will call you Akio-San if you prefer it but was unsure.

My question was more addressing the fact that apart from commoners with the roles of servants or aids the higher classes would simply not mix with the lower classes and was asking how we were addressing this? I'm assuming we are ignoring that fact as long as the proper respect is given to those of a higher social standing.

I was thinking that while I'm gone for a week or two starting Sunday, maybe Seraphina could be injured or missing to explain why no one in Divine Water can interact with her. Then when I return from my vacation I will either have her be healed or turn up suddenly (in a dramatic fashion) because I so love dramatic entrances lol

@Flygon No not unlimited slots but rather a first come first serve basis now that the prince/princess roles are filled. That said the fact you have shown the interest will probably count for something (although i cannot speak for Akio-San so dont take my word as law). At least this is how I understand it.

@Crushgaunt I must say I agree with Akio-San! I love your character and his flaws are very well thought out. Will lead to some interesting roleplay!

@Crushgaunt I'm hoping to see my characters steadfast adherence to the teachings of bushido present interesting situations. Honour being so important to his core beliefs should prove problematic when talking to those less honourable. Not necessarily a pure flaw but more of a double edged sword that can help and hinder him (although predictably mostly hinder!)

He may for example struggle with your characters potion addiction issues or perhaps with pinksapphire's Hikari Natsumi Dendetsu's practice of ninjutsu. Obviously this is all speculation and depends on who exactly the stories play out but it will be interesting to see.

:D Did I hear someone, Arctos, mention Pink's character, Hikari Natsumi Dendetsu? Haha, I already have plans with her meeting with Icarus Uprising soon! It's a little hard to understand the topic right now.

EDIT: By the way, your signature is very funny, Flyborg! xD

@ Shinydiamond: Yeah me and Crushgaunt are discussing our character's flaws seeing as his is particularly inventive. I used Pinksapphire in an example of possible interesting interactions others may have with my character. Seeing as he practices Bushido (The warriors way) and her character practices Ninjutsu it could be eventful. Ninjutsu is known for being dishonourable warfare methods or at least those that would not be allowed by those who practice Bushido so if my character discovers or is told this he may not think too highly of her.

Its purely speculation and may not be the case obviously depends how things play out. Have i made it any clearer for you?

EDIT: Realised the final sentence above sounds as if I am talking down to you and I did not mean it in such a way. Was a sincere question I apologise if it comes across in an offensive way.

Arctos, your character should get along just fine with mine! (My sign up is on page 3 somewhere...I think)

@Arctos: So Honour fights with honor, correct? Icarus does so too.

EDIT: My SU is on page 4. If Icarus & Honour were to meet, Icarus wouldn't trust so easily, so it'd might take a while before he gets along with Honour. They both fight with honor if you read my SU, so obviously they'll get along if it weren't for Icarus' trust issues.

EDIT AGAIN: xD Wait! Teruyoshi is on Divine Water! They'll definitely not get along!

@LT Col Fantastic: I have just read your SU (although i skimmed through it earlier today) and I can see our two characters getting on well! At least they will learn a lot from each other!

@ShinyDiamond: Well sort of yes.

Ninja are commonly known as the warriors without honour. They were spies and assassins so would kill people from the shadows etc. Dishonourably.
Bushido was the warriors way and promoted honour in all things. To the point where if you were dishonoured you would commit Seppuku (stomach cutting) a kind of ritual suicide. Not particularly pleasant.
So the two ideas are at odds in a very fundamental way. Ninja have no honour besides the fact that they serve a lord and do not betray him/her. Samurai have rules they cannot break and so cannot do things such as spy or assassinate people.
It is more complicated than this (some samurai were also ninja etc.) but this is not a history lesson and i dont want to bore you! xD

Both have their uses and Teruyoshi would respect the need for ninja within his own family but a ninja from the other family? That would be a whole other matter.

My Character will most likely get along with everyone on her side. But she hates to do what she's told, I also think my character is the youngest character, being only 11 years old.

Wow. . .it is kinda sad that I am not getting what some of the things you guys are talking about! XD

I'm just a child, and I get some of this Japanese honor stuff, but I get a little.

And I know about Ninjas. ^.^
