Reboot of Seven Deadly Sins

For months the atmosphere in your house has been tense, to say the least, after all you have applied for one of the most prestigious schools in the UK (and the world in general). Your parents are likely acting something like this, an over excited dad, “Oh. I'm so proud of you," and a worried sick mum, “How will you cope without us?” or “What if you haven't been accepted?” Somewhere in the middle is where you are, a balance of stress and excitement as you look forward to a life without your neurotic parents.

But in the last few weeks you have begun to feel like a different person entirely. It isn't the stress of what's been happening, it's something much stranger. Firstly you seem to be having weird dreams, dreams where you are either an angel, or an evil creature, you may even shapeshift back and forth between the two. Second, you have felt your personality change, like bipolarity between destruction and the desire to do good. All of this however has gone unmentioned to your parents -- or anyone else for that matter, as you have much bigger things to worry about at the moment.

Then it arrived, the day that would change everything.

It probably started like any other day, but on that day a very important letter arrived, addressed to you. It was the day that you (or at least your parents) had waited for for so long, and if it wasn't you who had then it was definitely your parents (who were pushing you to open the letter). The letter seemed like a regular one, it was a brown envelope with a first class stamp on the front and on the back was stamped a seal, the school logo of St. Jude's. You had worked long and hard to prove that you were good enough to get into St. Jude's, weeks of revision followed by a gruelling three hour entrance exam and an interview with a member of the staff. It's common knowledge that an education at St. Jude's could be life-changing, but at the time you opened the envelope you didn't realize how much it would change yours.


Spoiler:

Accepted Characters




Rules and Guidelines


Spoiler:
1. The PokéCommunity site and RPC rules are to be obeyed at all times.

2. This RP is rated at PG-16[M], and everyone is expected to abide by this rating. This may include the mention of drugs, mild blood and gore, swearing, violence and suggestion of sexual themes. Anything further is prohibited.

3. There will be no bunnying or godmoding allowed. You may, however, take control of another player's character if they give you permission.

4. This will be a rather long RP. (It ends near the Christmas holidays in-game.) If you know that you are not able to keep it up for the entirety, refrain from signing up. If your leave is only temporary, please refer to rule 3 so someone can take over in your absence in the case that your character must keep up in the plot.

5. Proper grammar and spelling are expected, along with more than enough information and detail to meet the 100-word minimum. If you are really struggling to come up with something, then make a joint post with someone else or ask for a random plot device to be sent your way. (If you have too much trouble, we'll assume you're just being lazy and probably throw you out.)

6. If you have any questions concerning the RP itself, just ask, either in here or PMs with the GMs.

7. This RP takes place in England, so for anybody who is not informed on the British education system it's recommended you take a look; it will make things much easier. Also, research the sin and virtue that you pick.

8. There will be no reservations. If this is ignored and another player submits a character sheet for your desired Sin or Virtue (even if they submit theirs after yours, as long as we haven't accepted yours yet), they will be regarded before you. You will not be notified unless you complain, in which case you will be redirected to this particular rule. :D If you fall victim to ignoring this particular rule, you are still free to make another Sin/Virtue combination.

9. The GMs are God. >:D If we see something that can be an issue, we will likely bring it up in private. Deal with it.


The Seven Deadly Sins


Spoiler:
Avarice (Greed)

Avarice can take one of two forms, firstly it can be greed, the need to horde vast amounts of money and to profit from everything. An alternate view of avarice is the senseless spending of money on pointless things just to have them. If you pick avarice you can use either or both of these in your character. Opposite of Charity.

Envy

Envy is the desire to have what others have, or to see it taken from them. When afflicted by envy one will want to take away what they don't believe others should have. To accomplish this, one will likely lie, steal and in general cause a great deal of upset just to satisfy their own jealousy. Opposite of Kindness.

Gluttony

Gluttony is over-consumption, eating far too much is the normal take on this sin. But simply eating a lot does not make it gluttony, it must be excessive to the point where there is waste. There are also many other ways to interpret gluttony instead of the classical interpretation of eating and drinking to excess. Opposite of Temperance.

Lust

Lust is an insatiable desire for pleasure. It could be sex that they desire, drugs or something else (even collecting stamps), but in general they crave whatever makes them feel good. Opposite of Chastity.

Pride

Pride is considered the worst of sins by putting oneself higher than anything. It is their belief that they are better than others (and at many times even God Himself) and are driven to prove it to the world. How pride affects someone depends on who they are, and there are quite a few ways to portray it. Opposite of Humility.

Sloth

Sloth is not doing, laziness, it is the sin of not having the drive to get on and do anything. This person will give up on their work without missing a beat, they will do whatever they can to get out of making an effort. Opposite of Diligence.

Wrath

Wrath is simply the sin of anger, and this person will only find solace in its expression in some form. Opposite of Patience.





The Seven Heavenly Virtues


Spoiler:
Charity

Charity is the virtue of giving and sacrifice, who ever has charity will be inspired to help others who have less than themselves, to truly be charity though this must go to the extreme of sacrificing their own comfort to help others. Opposite of Greed.

Kindness

Kindness is being friendly to everyone no matter who they are. The kind person will greet everyone with a warm smile and help them in their time of need, unlike charity this will be by actually helping and not giving. Opposite to Envy.

Temperance

Temperance is a strong sense of justice and great deal of self control. They will know what is right, what is wrong and do their very best to pick the right and fair choice. Opposite to gluttony.

Chastity

Chastity is a lack of temptation. This person will see temptation but will know that they need to resist it. To some their lack of temptation may seem naïve but it is a sign of true maturity. Opposite to Lust.

Humility

Humility never wants to be the centre of attention, they will likely enjoy living a quite life and be very well mannered. Through being humble this person has realised that they don't need to prove themselves to anyone in order to live a happy life. Opposite to Pride.

Diligence

Diligence is the virtue of hard work. Diligence may not be the smartest but they always work the hardest to make up for it. Opposite to Sloth.

Patience

Patience is the virtue of peace, of taking the time to fully evaluate everything. The patient person realises that violence doesn't solve problems, they will almost always search for alternatives to violence in solving any problem. Opposite to Wrath.

Sooo....can I only be good for one option? Meaning, can I choose for my character to only have a virtue?
Eggy click, pwease!



The girl you just called fat? She is overdosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for our country. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying. Copy and paste this into your sig if you think bullying is wrong. You never know what it's like until you walk a mile in their shoes. -Taken from chef30

Sadly, no. You'll have to choose one of each.

Anyways, here's the sheet for Akira.

Spoiler:

Part I: Human Form



Name: Akira Amane

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Sin: Wrath

Virtue: Charity

Appearance: Looking more kin to his Japanese heritage, Akira is 5' 4", 130 pounds, has somewhat small green eyes, and black hair that spikes about but overall lands just below his ears, as well as a tannish-white skin tone. His body is well-built, albeit not very muscular, so he's skinny, yet he can lift his own weight and then some. The fact he actually does lift weights and exercise is only slightly evident through his arms and legs. While his clothing style varies across whatever he thinks would look good on him (even if it doesn't match something else in his wardrobe), he always wears glasses, and a sapphire necklace held up with silver miniature chain links; he never takes the necklace off unless he's completely alone.

Personality: His voice smooth enough for all of the words to flow together (aside from a couple trips over his own tongue when he's trying to speed along something), Akira acts as a natural mediator, a confident speaker, and he can be pretty dang persuasive when he wants a good grade. An intelligent young man through his schooling, he relies on logic and reason over emotion and bias. As such, he's not exactly a religious person, but if he sees it he'll start praisin' the Lord. He also ends up fairly insensitive when giving his opinions, too, even while considering someone else's feelings, believing it's for their own good.

For some reason, his sin doesn't drive him to anger. Instead, it gives him a euphoric feeling whenever he sows discord amongst others, and restrains his own, storing all the anger he holds. His charity gives him a much more apparent use of his knowledge and abilities when he's helping others, when he mostly hides the fact he can do all these things by sleeping or wandering off during class, among other things. Akira's virtue annoyingly works in tandem alongside his sin at times, driving him to even "helping" people learn the latest gossip.

History: Born of a Japanese father and British mother in western B.C., Canada near the edge of Washington state (varied life, right?), Akira Amane received one of the best educations he could get, and is fully aware of it. However, a car accident caused him to lose his mother at an early age, and his eyes were damaged while she was trying to protect him. While he could still see, it was only with the assistance of glasses that he could see clearly from thereon. Otherwise, Akira's life has been pretty normal, albeit with a single dad who'd never remarried.

Powers: Akira is able to obtain a general idea of what someone's thinking through their emotions and facial expressions; this ends up being much easier and more precise for him when they're in need of something or they're in a worse-off position than his own. From his sin, aside from becoming more energized by seeing and hearing another's anger, Akira can use his own through his voice and temporarily break someone's will to disobey an order, even someone else's as long as they get an order in. (While his Charity's power is always active, Akira can't use his latter ability until he has stored anger to burn, typically disabling its usage after a good night's sleep.)

Part II: Holy Form



Appearance: With no wings, or any really angelic features, Akira is pretty human here. Regardless, Akira looks very little like Akira at all except in height and hair color. With long black hair that waves out at the end and wide, heavenly blue eyes, Akira's virtue-corresponding form is actually a woman! In this state, Akira's skin pales to match an average Brit's, and his body generally becomes much more feminine to the point of seeming like a young mother. He also dons a noticably mixed-British accent and higher pitch, blending well with his natural flow. He doesn't need his glasses in this form, either, having near-perfect vision. Lastly, his clothes all converge into a long black and white dress that reaches a couple centimeters above his ankles, with silver lace-patterned lining in the collar and at the ends of the dress' accompanying detached sleeves.

For some reason, whenever Akira is in this form, he has his memories (and even his name), but not as himself. "She" completely believes she's a different person that's lived Akira's life in this form, and both are unaware that the other exists. She's also a much more cautious and caring person than her real self, all the more willing to help others, and aware of her powers.

Artefact: Akira's artefact, embedded right between his collarbones (just below his neck), is the bluish-purple sapphire that he normally keeps as a necklace.

Powers: The first and possibly most effective power concerning this form is Akira's "Ultimate Defense": a force field of varying size and shape (it typically covers his entire body, though with training he could possibly create it from empty space and cover other people) that stops, deflects and reflects quite literally anything that moves, from matter to sound and electromagnetic waves to pure energy. Annoyingly, he still has to breathe when it's surrounding himself; as such, he can't normally hold up the Ultimate Defense continuously for more than a minute, max (unless there's a supply of air), nor can he move unless he's in motion while creating the field.

Akira's second ability in his Holy Form is pheromone manipulation. With it, he can do many things involving others, including (but not limited to) affecting someone's emotions and attractions, causing people to see illusions or fall asleep, and lower someone's inhibitions (to the point where they'd follow nearly any request like mind control). It has positive properties, too, such as increasing someone's stamina or healing capabilities, and can even be used to disorient an enemy or turn them against each other. (It's a double-edged sword of sorts, as it can even end up tempting someone else's own sin to manifest if they have a susceptibility to it.)

Third is the ability to translate his own stamina into life energy, expending himself even to exhaustion to energize and heal someone's injuries at a shocking rate; almost instantaneously for small wounds, and greatly reducing the damage from deeper ones.

Lastly, and Akira's most basic, is a very notable increase in speed from his natural athleticism. Because of this he can go from walking to running faster than a speeding bike with little trouble (and keep up with the insane and elderly on the freeway! |D )

Part III: Hell Form



Appearance: Growing a pair of angelic white wings and a sword from outside his right wrist to his elbow (which he can detach and re-attach as he pleases), Akira's hair turns into black feathers, falling to his shoulders. Along with it, his eyes turn entirely black, and his lips follow along. His skin turns extremely pale to contrast it, giving his face a devilish, albeit it still somewhat human appearance. Akira's clothes burst into black and white flames, constantly surrounding his body like normal clothing, and can't be put out (even though the fires do nothing but provide the clothing-like cover). Finally, joining his side is a black-furred beastly wolf, aptly named Wolf.

Powers: His first and foremost ability consists of total control over Wolf. They can even communicate through telepathy and their senses, letting each other see what one sees, hears, etc. Secondly, Akira naturally has power over fire. Instead of heat, however, his fire controls the absence of it, ripping away the heat of what it touches much like he absorbs the malice of those around him. His third power consists of the blade embedded in his arm, giving him expert proficiency in using it and and eternal sharpness; not just sharp, but cut-through-a-large-rock sharp.

Finally, Akira gains greatly increased reflexes. He can't dodge a bullet too well, obviously, but he can bullet-time his way out of a sword's path all day.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

Hmm... Sins and Virtues, eh? Sounds fun.

Spoiler:

I: Normal Form



Name: Simon McGregor

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Sin: Avarice

Virtue: Humility

Appearance: In a word, average. Simon is 5' 6", 144 pounds, with tannish skin, the color like paper dipped in tea. His eyes are dark sapphire blue, and his hair is brown, cut short but wild, since he never bothers to style it, or even brush it. He's rather skinny, but with some muscle, although not much in the upper body department. Most of the exercise he gets is through running, which he's fond of, but it doesn't do much for his arms. His clothing choices are remarkably similar, in fact he owns several sets of the same outfit: blue denim jeans, red t-shirt, black running shoes, and a navy blue windbreaker. He wears a pair of black plastic-framed reading glasses and an old pendant, an eight-sided green stone attached to a silver chain.

Personality: Simon is a calm, analytical person. He doesn't like to rush into things, and rarely even speaks to others unless he is giving his opinion of something. He generally leaves others alone unless they annoy him or cause him problems, in which case he tries to resolve the problem. First with words, then with quick violence, followed by running away. He tries to keep busy at all times, because his mind is always working, and he can get a little stir-crazy. He has a tendency to ramble on a bit, talking to himself as he works things out, though he quiets down immediately if someone draws attention to him.

His sin causes him to become much darker-minded, always seeking to gain more. His thoughts turn to how he can get just one more of a particular item, or how he can minimize what he uses or wastes in his endeavors. Notably, he doesn't care much for money itself, but has a fondness for shiny objects, particularly gems. Compare and contrast with his virtue, where he attempts to hide his influence from the world as much as possible. He offers his input or assistance quietly, hoping to be overlooked, but still contribute. Working his virtue and sin together, he is a quiet and skulking character, trying to obtain more while being noticed less.

History: Simon is the third child in a middle-class Scottish family. His mother was an officer of the local police, and his father owned and operated his own restaurant. Simon was treated equally to his siblings, but recieved little attention from his busy parents. He kept himself busy by reading books at the local library or taking recreational jogs down the lane. He was informed of St. Judes during school, and applied with the hopes that such a famed establishment would offer him some interesting and life-altering opprotunities. After pre-testing three times, he took the exam and interviewed, eagerly awaiting results.

Powers: His greedy nature allows him to locate objects, either general or specific, within a certain area. His virtue allows him to go unnoticed by others, where they tend to look at anything other than him unless they are actively looking for him.





II: Holy Form



Appearance: In this form, Simon's face becomes utterly featureless, a blank slate save for his eyes, which become pure white. Though he lacks ears, a nose, or a mouth, he can still hear, smell and even speak normally. When speaking, his voice just seems to emanate from his body. His skin takes on a light blue color, glowing slightly, and appears slightly translucent. His clothing is transformed into a white tunic and leggings, with wooden sandals on his feet. His glasses are missing in this form, despite the lack of pockets on his tunic. Finally, a pair of feathery grey wings sprout from his lower back, although they don't provide much in the way of flight.

Artefact: Simon's necklace, known as the Jade Octahedron, is embedded into his holy form's flesh, the stone resting between his pectoral muscles.

Powers: As a paragon of humility, Simon takes no credit for himself, but allows others to excel. His mere prescence enhances the physical traits of those around him, granting his allies increased strength, skill, toughness and agility.

His second power allows him to create and manipulate kinetic force around his hands. Using this power, he can create small shields, lift objects telekinetically, or project a beam of pure kinetic energy with force comparable to a heavy punch from a boxer.

His third power is a subtle one, allowing him to regenerate wounds sustained in battle. Doing so takes time and concentration, however. His final power is limited flight from his wings. He currently can't do much more than hover in place or keep himself aloft while falling.





III: Hell Form



Appearance: Simon's Hell Form is a reptilian humanoid, with charcoal-blue scales covering his body, and a single long horn growing from his forehead. His eyes change color, with yellow sclera, green irises, and black slitted pupils. In this form, he stands only 3 feet tall, with a stinger-tipped prehensile tail roughly half that length. He retains his human hair, but gains sharp teeth and claws. His body is completely covered by the scales, but his clothing hangs in shreds on his body, although his glasses remain in place.

Powers: To go along with his new natural weapons, Hell Form Simon gains enhanced speed, strength, and reflexes. He is twice as fast and strong as an average human, and his reflexes allow him to dodge most attacks, though bullets are obviously too fast for him to dodge. A secondary power is a form of natural adhesion, allowing him to climb along even vertical surfaces or flatten himself against a ceiling.

Simon's touch can drain life energy from living creatures, making them weaker and him stronger. His final power is the ability to release a bolt of electrical energy from his mouth. The attack is quick but non-lethal, stunning his enemies as static electricity courses through them. His horn visibly crackles with electricity before and during this attack.

I remember seeing you from the original thread, Godzil. (Your avatar's somewhat unmistakable.) Nice to see you jumping in the reboot.

That said, I like the expansion from your previous SU. Some things stayed; some things were worked on to make it much more fleshy. Overall it has my seal of approval.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

If anything needs changing, I'll do my best to adjust. Most of my abilities, the Warden approved of ahead of time, but I am aware they may need to be adjusted for fairness sake. (I don't want to be too overpowered....wait, yes I do).

Spoiler:


Name: Leonard Argyle Radcliff
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Sin: Pride
Virtue: Patience

Human Form



Appearance: Leon would consider himself a beautiful prince in appearance and few people would disagree. Aspiring to become a celebrity of sorts, Leon pays a great deal of attention to his looks and it reflects that. His skin has a healthy, natural tan and it has a fair texture with few impurities on any given spot. His face has youthful energy to it, aided by his deep blue and inviting eyes. While the eyes don't do the amazing sparkling effect, many women have been mesmerized by them at least enough to give the typical comments that men with blue eyes receive. Leon's cheeks are slightly rosy, giving him the appearance of a child. His square jawline, prominent nose bridge, and thinner than average lips give him a more masculine edge, which he is quite proud of. Leon's most noticeable trait, however, is his full, thick, luscious blonde hair. His hair is quite long and difficult to tame. While it lacks a distinct style preferring to fall into his face giving him an almost scruffy look to him, Leon takes good care of it using expensive hair care products to give it bounce and making it soft to the touch. He loves his hair so much that he is guilty of playing with it when bored.

Leon has been gifted with a superb body that keeps him from gaining too much weight and becoming completely unattractive. He is fairly tall for his age, clocking it around 5"11 with a healthy weight of around 160 pounds. Leon is thin, being overly conscious of his weight. While he is "healthy", Leon is guilty of constantly dieting, robbing his body of valuable nutrients. Therefore, he has little muscle development and appears almost frail at times (though he manages to be above average in athletics, being an exceptional runner).

Leon dresses in a manner fitting those who are conscious of their appearance. He is most often seen wearing dark casual or dress shirts, often in shades of blue or black, usually with a plain black undershirt. The shirts are usually plain with few designs, though pinstripes or medieval style designs occasionally spur up. He favors jeans that are the standard faded blue denim complete with a stonewashed accent given to them, supplying character and individuality. To keep his pants from having a date with the ground, Leon wears a black leather belt with a sliver buckle. Enjoying accessories, Leon has invested in several pieces of jewelry, including a silver chain necklace, a silver chain bracelet on his right hand and a fancy silver watch on his left hand.

Personality: Leon is the definition of an inflated ego. Ambitious, attention seeking, selfish and vain, Leon is a hard man to like but an easy one to admire. Goal-orientated, Leon aims high and never looks back stopping at nothing to accomplish what he desires. As such, Leon is stubborn to a fault, never accepting defeat. Having witnessed failure so few times, Leon has built up quite the ego, unnecessarily feeding it at any given time. He is a glory hog and a narcissist, reading his long list of accomplishments at inappropriate times. This captures the imagination of the weak minded, but would annoy the more aware. Leon loves reveling his accomplishments and his admirers more than anything in the world. Leon is notably fearless and brave to the point of stupidity, never backing away from a challenge or endeavor. To him, challenges are meant to be overcome and it is the only way one can test themselves. Leon is known to carry himself with a fairly easy going nature, until challenges or opportunities for success present themselves. It is then that he shifts to a more serious and intense tone, and his bottled up emotions rise to the surface.

Leon is a social butterfly, loving to interact with others regularly. Though many of these interactions are limited to him boasting, Leon is capable of intelligent conversation. A solid student in school, Leon is above average on the intelligence scale which would explain why his improvisations succeed more than most. Leon is talkative and active, constantly moving and meeting new people. Leon never shy away from attention and often jumps into them with a grin. Leon enjoys people and interaction and if someone genuinely interests him, he will hold back his ego to show a less superficial side to him. This does not mean that Leon has a golden heart, but instead that Leon is a genuinely friendly person whose high aspirations turn off many because of the way that he carries himself. Leon mostly notably has a soft spot for women, flirting with them with mixed results. He is guilty of going out of his way to impress them, often looking foolish in the process.

Despite his blind arrogance, Leon has developed some vestige of patience recently, more willing to wait things out and try to find a better solution. He still has the occasional bout of reckless behavior and can be impulsive, but Leon has found the ability to remain level headed and more the willing to cooperate to accomplish the greater good.

History: Leon was born into the 1% of America to a rich businessman of a father and a trophy wife of a mother. Leon was expected to inherit his father's legacy and therefore was given the best education money could buy, the biggest ego compliments could conceive, and develop the greatest gifts man could possess through hard work and dedication. Leon was to be the prodigy his father could be proud of. Therefore, nearly every waking moment was spent working to become the perfect successor and Leon's father demanded nothing but the best. Leon was therefore constantly working towards accomplishing that goal. St. Jude's was a natural step for Leon being that his intelligence and greatness would have to be recognized by the best. The exam was easy for him, as Leon boasted to his peers. To him, it was fate that his flawless nature enter the most prestigious school he could think of.


Powers: Using the power of the original sin, Leon has the ability to impose his greater power above someone and control their mind temporarily. This can involve either pushing thoughts into their mind to make them do certain things or a complete hypnosis. However because of the nature of the ability, Leon can only use the ability once a day. His other ability is to calm others by affecting their emotional state. This is affected by touch and allows Leon to avoid confrontation by calming even the most anger of individuals.

Holy Form



Appearance: Leon becomes truly an image of perfection when he ascends to his holy form, becoming the very image of an angel ripped from the imaginations of the most faithful. His blonde hair becomes a shade of gold and his blue eyes glow in the light of his pure white aura. His clothing changes to a white tunic with a leather belt around his waist and leather gloves and boots. His stature appears to become more regal with an increase in height and build, as Leon grows to 6"2 and gains some muscle definition, giving him the toned build he deserved for oh so long. Most notably however is Leon's large white feathered wings that complete the holy look. The wings have great span and are more than capable of keeping in the air should he decide to.

Artefact: Leon's artifact is a golden bracelet with a sapphire stone worn around his right wrist.

Power: The first and possibly greatest ability in this form is Leon's omnicompetence which is the ability to handle all situations or matters. While this may sound like being the equivalent to god, Leon's variation of the power is not always active, therefore not gifting him with the constant foresight to succeed in every endeavor. Occasionally activated unintentionally in times of peril (or not) or activated through concentration, Leon will only have flashes of brilliance that gift him with the ability to solve problems. With training, Leon may be able to have these flashes more frequently or obtain greater foresight.

Leon also has the ability of telekinesis, which allows him to manipulate and control objects with his mind. Being his brand is broad, Leon levitates, pulls, pushes, crushes and blasts objects and people. Leon has low level clairvoyance, able to see the future but only in dreams and obscure visions. Leon can also use his wings to fly.

Hell Form



Appearance: Leon's hell form has the obligatory darkness to it. With his hair a scruffy black and his eyes a burning red, Leon has demon painted all over him. With pale skin, sharp teeth, tribal tattoos tearing through a ripped black and red trench-coat and tattered jeans, Leon is unkempt, dirty, dark and above all, screaming evil. A red aura seems to follow him and he carries a black cane with a Christian Demon silver handle, with glowing red eyes. Wings, horns and other cliches are notably absent, but do not feel necessary. Also, Leon's stature remains the same (though he may be shorter), but he appears to grow more toned.

Power: In this form, Leon's primary power is the control of gravitational fields, allowing Leon to make the environment "heavy" or "light" in a given area. This is usually done by creating his own field in the area in which the gravity in his field is controlled by his will. As a limiter, Leon cannot move as freely as normally as he must be constantly concentrating on the laws of the field that he conceived. In his field however, Leon can repel and attract objects, giving him the ability to push and pull objects as if he had basic telekinesis.

As a secondary power, Leon has the ability of elemental transmutation which allows him to change or alter the chemical compounds of substance by rearranging its atomic structure. Activated by touch, he can alter the state of a matter of object, it's basic shape or form or simple destroy an object's basic form. However, he cannot create or complete destroy an object, therefore he is bounded by the basic laws of science.

His final ability hearkens back to his human form abilities, but in his form it takes the form of vice inducement which allows Leon to elicit the vices in a person's soul, bringing out the worst qualities in a person and forces them to act upon them. Those with weak wills succumb easily. The effect is temporary and much like his gravity manipulation only is active in a given field. Separation from his field will end Leon's grip on them.

@juniebug910: Can't wait to see what you come up with. ^_^

@Raikiri: Talk about meeting the super-awesome powers expectation. Leon certainly fits the concepts of Pride and Patience alike, too, even in just the combined efforts toward his appearance.

I didn't think anyone would go so far as gravity manipulation for this, but I'm glad it was you. That said, the gravity manipulation tells me, "BOW FREAKIN' DOWN," to whatever's in the vicinity (appropriate, knowing you |D), while his foremost holy ability shows an arguably natural skill grown from years upon years of experience and observation while retaining the balance of humanity. I like it. (With the gravity manipulation, is it safe to assume that with training Leon will be able to create possibly even multiple fields separate himself? If so, even more awesome, but that's gonna take some major training. xD)

I want to sign up but I'm not sure whether I should get a Sin/Virtue or a "Normal" student.

Do you guys have preferences? Or are there any differences (other than the obvious) that I should consider?

I'm thinking about making a "Normal" student, but I'm not sure if that will give me equal or less RP opportunities.

We actually had to work out a balance for the "normal" students so they could still have some practical applications, instead of being totally-neglected side characters.

That said, the "normal" students will be able to take a Sin/Virtue combination as well, which influences them to a lesser degree. Their personality is altered all the same, and they'll gain a couple superpowers, so they'll be able to participate with the Sins & Virtues even if they don't transform into anything. This can even go into a "normal" student investigating strange occurrences surrounding the school and what's happening to them, culminating into their own sub-story for something they can tell their grandkids in 50 years.

The biggest actual difference, not regarding the major, major events of the plot, is that the "normal" students will still be able to live fairly average lives, while the "Sins & Virtues" students will be much more affected by everything around and within them. Depending on how players play the students and their interactions, they'll also be able to heavily influence how the S&V characters develop; this gives the normal students arguably just as much effect on the game as the "main" characters.

Overall, you can just chalk it up to preference on how "central" to the storyline you want to be and what combination you want (though, like I said, you'll have just as many opportunities, if not more, to develop as the S&V students if you choose a Normie); if a Sin/Virtue you want was already taken for the S&V Students, it may still be available for Normal Students.

Okay, I think I'll make a normie, in that case.

E: Just noticed the little scroll help stuff. X) I think I might change what I want to be then.

And spoilerfied!

Spoiler:

I: Normal Form



Name: Cameron Chris

Age: 16

Gender: Male

Sin: Lust

Virtue: Kindness

Appearance: Cameron is a dark-skinned man about an inch above six feet. It is easy to describe Cameron as tall, dark, and handsome. He is tall, he is dark, and he is handsome. His features don't make him a masterpiece but they don't him paint on the wall either. He is worth at least a short glance. He has an ectomorphic body, so clothes can be a hassle and they don't really agree with him either. Cameron isn't a fashion wiz on top of that, but he does a good job. He usually wears jeans and casual wear, since you can attempt finding them in the right size without too much of a cost. He most prefers wearing short sleeve clothing in reds or darker colors. If he has a shirt that fits, but looks baggy or worn, he usually wears a jacket or hoodie over it to make himself look at least normal. His right ear is pierced with a square, silver earring.

Cameron wears a black, digital wrist-watch on his left wrist. Cameron does work out semi-regularly, so he does have tone to his arms an body. However this does very little to alter his thin figure.

Personality: Around new people, Cameron isn't much of a speaker. When he talks his voice is usually a low mumble. With those he is more comfortably acquainted with he can speak perfectly fine. Cameron is simply uncomfortable around people he rarely speaks to, partially because he doesn't know what to say to them, another part because he doesn't want to be around them, and the last part because engagement isn't really his forte. Family and well-acquainted friends are a familiar party and everyone else is almost like a danger. He tries to disassociate himself with these people to prohibit further communication, but that isn't always effective. Because of his shyness around those he doesn't know, he tries to distract himself when in a room of strangers. This habit has gotten him into book reading and he seems to always have one on him in the off chance that he needs to deflect foreign advancements. Cameron has also gotten used to staying mostly under the radar. In school he doesn't participate unless specifically asked to by the teacher and only talks when he sits next to friends (though that's usually corrected by an unwanted seat change). Studying is also a way to distract himself from the crowds, though he doesn't particularly like it. Because of this, Cameron has the best grades in the classes he feels the most uncomfortable. When Cameron is around friend he's well acquainted with, he's much more comfortable to speak and is generally a good guy. He can be friendly and and disagreeing as well. Cameron can also be quite spiteful when he wants to be, sometimes unreasonably.

Cameron is a little bit easier to upset. Insults and general can make him angry and disrespectful attitudes or disregard can make him irate. While he doesn't like talking to his superiors he does believe that they all deserve respect. He is very set on this and is unmoving in this value. He is also believing in personal duties and creates them as his responsibilities shift. Failing these small principles creates disappointment and personal blame for himself. Cameron is very set in his ways and doesn't do a lot make changes. If he does, it isn't significant. He isn't very good at "trying new things".

This is true most of the time. There have been times, however, when Cameron's personality takes an opposite turn. He becomes much more confident or outgoing, a person that radiates energy. He has the tendency to tease or jeer and has somewhat of an arrogant streak. He is much more able to get himself in trouble, it seems, and is much more willing to indulge in destructive behavior purely for the fun or pleasure of it. He's much less willing to take no for an answer and if his own persuasion doesn't work he'll attempt heckling it out of a person. Cameron is much more reckless like this as well. Cameron, as his normal self, does not enjoy the presence of this second personality that started to come around him. He doesn't know what it is or where it came from, but he's very aware that it's there. Similar to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Cameron knows of his personality, but can't control when it comes or when it goes and he rarely remembers his activities while he's like this. There are also odd occasions when his other personality seems to speak or whisper to him, but he can never call it out, it comes on its own.

History: Cameron wasn't born to some high-end family and he wasn't a math star or the most deserving child on the planet. Cameron went to school and maintained his grades for football as well as to please his mother. At school he had an enjoyable time with his friends and after school is was leagues better. The only problem was that Cameron's mother was an adamant about higher education and wanted only the best for her son. Cameron thought their current school was fine, but she disagreed. She thought he needed more of a challenge, which explained his application sent to St. Jude's. He prayed for the letter to be a decline, but unfortunately, his wish wasn't going to come true.

However, this isn't the most important part of Cameron's life.

Powers: Lust, it seems, is the more dominate trait in Cameron and thus a power relating to Lust is not only his primary, but most used. His power, simply, is the knowledge of a single or multiple person's inner most desire, either in that current moment or one that has existed in a person for days, weeks, or years. He, however, will not be able to control when he gets these desires or which ones he receives. This knowledge is communicated to him almost like a thought. Once he receives the desire he will always be able to find it within the person. If it vanishes then the thought will be lost to him. As his power progresses he will be able to willingly find and choose desires or even manipulate and place new ones into a person. Because desires are so powerful in affecting a person, Cameron can only change, add, replace, or remove three desires in a single person.

His secondary power, relating to kindness, has no effect on himself but others. His power gives him the ability to light up a room. The activation of this power, which is near constant, can cause those in Cameron's proximity to feel happiness, calm, or euphoria. This power becomes especially active when around a negative situation. As this power progresses, Cameron will be able to affect the level of emotional change, manipulate a person's willingness to help, or even remove happiness from a person completely.


III: Hell Form



Appearance-
Because of Cameron's Lust Empowerment ability, his appearance gradually changes as he grows stronger.

Going straight into his Hell form, Cameron has small, red horns that hide in his hair and a tail (though it's not red, but the color of his skin). His nails have grown longer and claw-like and his canines have sharpened themselves. These changed aren't all that great it seems, but they seem to give him, somehow, a more attractive look, one that entices those near him to stay just a little longer.

First Form: At this point, Cameron seems to have grown taller. His horns and tail have grown larger and his claws sharper. His teeth have also grown sharper and his body has gotten bigger. His appearance looks more mature and has become, once again, much more attractive. This drawing effect has once again grown stronger. Cameron's voice, movements, and touch all have this similar affect and has the tendency to bloom desires within the person he is in contact with. However, like an Incubus, these created desires usually point towards Cameron himself, but they do not last long once he has left a person's presence.

Second Form: At this form it is apparent that Cameron has grown almost two feet from his original height and he has grown much larger than from his previous form. His horns have also grown more exponentially, now big enough to curl backwards. His tail is larger and can be used as a viable weapon. His claws are also sharper and longer. He has an older, stronger appearance and not only has an imposing air to him, but an intensely desirable one. Much like his last form, it can cause the bloom of lust or a strong desire within others. Instead of fading quickly once he's separated, these feeling instead persist, but they come as frequent or occasional thoughts. In this form these effects are at or near their maximum and he is at his best for his demonic, incuben look. His wings are large and have a wide span, large enough to carry him in flight.

Third Form: At this stage, Cameron is very far gone. Instead of the humanoid figure before, Cameron has turned into a literal monster of a demon. It is a large and ugly form. Fur has become prominent on a large part of his body and gives him a feral look. Instead of feet, he has acquired hind legs and hooves. His stance could be described as now ape-like, having to now rest on his knuckles to walk. His teeth, which have become extremely sharp, now boast two large saber teeth. At this point he has become quite large and muscled and his head and facial features can be considered boar-like. Aside from his clawed hands and arms, there is no easily found feature of him that is human. In this monstrous form, Cameron can be easily described as wild or feral. While he still can use his powers, simple acts like thinking or self-control are much harder to maintain or completely absent. It is almost as if he forgets who or what he is. Like this, Cameron is very much like a drooling animal. The effects of his previous forms are now mostly absent. Instead of attracting a person towards himself, it generalizes into anything or into a focus on anyways. These effects depend on who is experiencing them. It victimizes larger amounts of people, but the effects are not as strong. After this, any extra power given to him from his Empowerment will not change him further other than making him taller and larger, but this would take an exceedingly long time. This form is likely to burn out from being over energized.


Cameron's forms in no way come instantly and are, in fact, gradual changes. It takes longer to get from one stage to the next.

Powers-

Lusftul Energy Manipulation: This power uses the accumulation opponents deepest desires as weapons. The desires form into the shape of a being or into a suffocating and/or overwhelming cloud. If a person is being overwhelmed within the cloud it could cause the person to become obsessed and abandon their current mission in order to fulfill their desires. However, once outside the cloud, this will only last temporarily. The more selfish and abundant these desires are, the stronger the energy will become. As desires are fulfilled, overcome, or discarded, the weaker the energy will become. Of all desires, sexual desires make for the strongest weapons. If Cameron cannot take energy from another he can use the energy collected from what was gained by Lust Empowerment (which will of course drain energy). If Cameron uses his own energy he can only wield one at a time. If he uses another's he can create up to four, though that also depends on his proficiency and the amount of power he has. If Cameron uses his own energy to create an energy being, then the power doesn't slowly drain away, but store within the being from his body. This would, of course, lower his individual power. If he returns the being, then he regains the energy (or what is left), if it is defeated then he loses it. The more successful an opponent is to one of these, the more energy it loses until it eventually disperses completely.

Lustful Field: This power allows Cameron to create a field where the desires of whoever in it come true. While inside, the field creates an illusion of a world where these have all been fulfilled and the person is completely happy or satisfied. It tricks the brain into believing that this is real. It's most effective on those that are weak willed or have much stronger desires. If there are more than one person in the field then it will show them an illusion of their fulfilled respectful desires. This field does not work on people or beings that are without desires. Cameron can enter and exit this field without being affected. The more energy he's absorbed from Lust Empowerment, the larger the field can become. Creating and maintaining these fields requires control and concentration, especially with multiple people within the field. Otherwise it can be power-draining or over strenuous.

Lust Empowerment: This power allows Cameron to gain power from lustful feelings in the forms of indulgence, an intense want, the action of fulfilling these wants, or simply the thought of them. This only works, however, if they are done in sinful quantities or ways. Sexual forms of these give him the most energy. As he absorbs energy, the more powerful he becomes, and the more his appearance changes. He can also absorb this energy by performing these acts himself (though it must be sexual or an action brings down another person). The more energy he absorbs, the more his body changes. The energy produced by this power has a tendency to "leak". This "leak" makes slight changes around him and makes these occurrences more likely. The more energy he has stored, the more that comes out. These leaks are heavier when he is relaxed and can escape quickly while he sleeps. While this power does enhance his other powers, it also enhances his normal strength and will drain normally with the use of physical energy.

Omnifarious: Cameron has the ability to shapeshift limitlessly into anything he so chooses to be. The more power he has absorbed through Lust Empowerment, the more powerful he can become. Rather than being determined by Cameron's current strength, the level of his Omnifarious power is based on how much energy he stores from Lust Empowerment. If he is without this energy he will automatically turn into smaller and/or weaker versions of what he wants. It is possible for him to force his body to change into something beyond the power he possesses, but it causes a great amount of pain and his energy drains quickly.

Instead of putting the help/tips in parentheses (since some people tend to ignore removing them, making for annoyances trying to read that crap), you're able to mouse-over all the SU sections for everything you need, including age requirements.

Please keep an eye on this post. If this is too extreme, please tell me.

Spoiler:


I: Normal Form Theme: Haze

Name: Kaya Syr Alabast

Age: 15

Gender: Female

Sin: Lust

Virtue: Kindness

Appearance:

Attractive is not the word you would think of to describe Kaya right away. Of course you would have to see her first. But when you do see her, she is very... I suppose filthy would be the right word. Small and always looking at the ground, matted auburn hair falling over her face to the point where you can't even see her eyes, she is a very disgusting individual from a distance. She knows this, Kaya likes this. She hopes it will get people to leave her alone.

Unfortunately these days she cannot take this appearance. Her hair was forced to be brushed until it gleamed, but it still rests over her face rather blindly. It would take a lot of skill to notice the glimmering grey eyes that would have tears if she had the courage to cry. If you find her alone however, you will find the first paragraph is her out-of school look, hiding her body underneath clothes much too large and a bag over her chest.

Kaya has a cute figure when she bothers to show it. Well, almost. Her left hand is permanently disfigured and mutilated, almost to match the bites like human teeth and the gouging of nails that eventually stopped going away. Her wrists and ankles show signs of handcuffs chafing her skin and there is a permanent limp in her petite step. Small and even now, still underweight, she cannot shake her roots of the place she lived, no matter how much people scrub off the dirt, no matter how much the girl attempts a smile. Don't even get her started on the bandages on her neck either.

Now that she has clothes that do come close to fitting her, she is very often seen in them. However, the ones she came home in still have an odd place in her heart, so secretly packed away from her is the revealing dress she had been in, resewn into a pillow by her father. Kaya instead, wears a hunter green, frilly sleeved shirt, revealing more of her arms and her breasts than she desires. Her legs are notably hidden by long dirt-brown pants that are almost like jeans. She wishes her arms could be covered more but the feeling of her arms being bare is something she is much too used to.

Personality:

It's not easy to forget what you are. The fairy tale prince ending doesn't exist; there is no happily ever after that comes out all right. You have to heal slowly, or hope to do it. But sometimes you don't. And the shadow lingers like a bruise on your brain.

Kaya knows this very well.

Timid and obedient, Kaya Alabast is frequently forgotten and left to waste away on her own. This is what she wants. If she is noticed, the hands will roam and she will likely fall into a panic attack. She was supposed to be a Valkyrie, but instead, she is too meek, too willing to follow the crowd. She is expecting fondling, assault in a safe environment and the mere concept of this event sends her into terrors at the simple tap on the shoulder. It's rather painful to watch at times, but if she's aware of the pity sent her way, she will not speak of it. Pain and pleasure have mixed rather thickly in her mind and pity is rather misinterpreted.

In truth Kaya doesn't speak at all really. No one has heard it except her father and even then it is reportedly a whisper. Most of the time, if you catch her attention, she'll write on a white board and hide her face behind it. Even if she did talk, it'd be to the floor. However, it isn't because she's quiet that she's intelligent. It's because books are her new escape. And a part of her is still in deep shock, uncertain of how real this is and how she is supposed to behave. She can't even do social mannerisms properly for the most part.

When she finally opens up to someone Kaya becomes rather dependent on their company. She won't say much and you may forget she's there... but she may be found following you like a lost puppy, just listening or working. It happened to her father... but it will likely take a long time for her to do such a thing in this new environment, particularly with over-familiarity likely to occur.

Kaya has quite a bit of despair in her, believing this really isn't happening and she's just trying to comfort herself over the real suffering. This makes her sin very vivid and turns her inwardly spiteful. From a distance that seems like Wrath but in reality seeing another in pain gives her a pulse of pleasure and a desire for people to have more of it and enjoy it. It's not simply out of anger, but because it's been very hard for her to tell the clear difference between her suffering and their enjoyment. So for all she knows that's giving them what they want, making it worse.

However, as her kindness has been blossoming, unknowingly tended by her father's care, she also struggles to be brave enough to speak and smile again, genuine smiles. She does make the effort to smile at servants and help in silence. As she grows more comfortable, doing this will likely become more second nature and normal. She doesn't mind assisting others... as long as she doesn't have to touch them. She's even been able to cry at dying puppies.

History:

Not everyone has a wonderful start, but everyone certainly has to try and make the best of it. Kaya knows this. However, understanding and doing is easier said than done.

Kaya Alabast was born in London, the pregnancy difficult and also not taking place in a hospital. It was a young woman, a high schooler to be precise. She had made more than quite a few mistakes and one of those was not contacting the father. Though... she didn't have a phone. A... worker at a prostitute agency (to keep this polite) struck a deal with the young, impressionable teenager. We pay for your hospital trip; you give up the child. Rather not wanting to die, the young teen agreed to this, not entirely sure of the deal she had just struck and what would happen to her newborn daughter. She was happy someone would be able to provide for her though and even more pleased that they would both likely live through this.

She was rather off... wasn't she?

There was little use for a baby in a prostitute agency in truth. However, this man was clever. He had a messenger in that little girl and someone to brainwash into the arts of pleasure and money-making while doing it, even teaching her how to read and write. Though a little girl was not much pleasure for any normal person, that didn't mean those kinds of people did not exist. And even though Kaya didn't entirely grasp the situation, she was well aware of the wrongness of it as well. Because the touches and words continued to vary and swirl in her mind, it leaded to her simply shutting down and obeying, fearful of what would happen otherwise. Punishments were not very kindly done. One of these had actually torn apart her left hand, it unable to heal properly. Then again, was pleasure not the same, bruises that sang of desire?

It was at the age of ten that everything changed. Then twenty-five-year-old James Alabast, father to young Kaya, who had until that moment had gone by Caron, something that the worker had found endearing, stormed the place, for lack of a better term. He had found her existence out from her mother, who had long since left the country. Guilty for not knowing and possibly considering such a thing happening, he hunted down his daughter to try and repair what damage he could. In truth, as he would admit to her later, he had wanted children but he didn't know it would be... quite so young as this. Since Kaya had been sleeping in her tiny cot at the time before being whisked out to her own family, the first thought in the little girl's mind was that she was being kidnapped and her boss would not get his pay.

Over the long drive back to the house they would live in, James spoke quietly and explained this all to her. She expected something horrible to happen o her during this. However, he did not go near her or reach out to her barring to carry her inside and examine her health. And even then, his fingers only ghosted over her. To anyone else, this would have been a sign of dislike. But to Kaya, it was respect and perhaps that made him endear to her. So did the name Kaya, the first thing she could honestly claim was hers.

That isn't to say the first year or so wasn't awkward and that it still isn't now. Oh no, they had quite a lot of trouble with each other due to Kaya's constant fear of the associate worker waking her for a job she was harmed by. Also, James was struggling to understand how to work with such a different child than his imagination. Kaya did not have the fear that he did not love her like other children would. She had no idea what the word meant. However, when James did take the risk of hugging her, she did realize that he was a safe person and to be safe around someone meant so much more. What also helped was that, due to his high status, he could afford to buy many books and materials and homeschool her. It rather amused the servants, who remembered the irresponsible brat who skipped school and stole from candy shops. Perhaps this was what allowed them to adore little Kaya, who soaked up information like a sponge. He taught and she learned and slowly Jamie began to make a girl out of a street rat. The therapist did help, even though Kaya barely spoke to her.

Not too long ago, James offered Kaya a test, the exam for going to St. Jude's. He wanted her to try, not because he hadn't made it, but because he knew there was only so much he could do for her. She needed people her age. The interview was unsurprisingly the most difficult part, mostly because Kaya was too frightened to actually talk. Instead Jamie offered to give her a white board to practice her handwriting. This surprisingly helped out. When the results, oddly high, came back, Kaya wasn't happy about the test. She was happy Jamie was proud of her. To her, that was a certainty... that she wouldn't never be hurt by him.

Powers:

As a human, her powers are striking, unlike herself. Related to kindness, she is able to soothe the pain of others by taking it into herself, almost to the point where they forget it exists. The sense of peaceful warmth ensures the rest of her ability, the restoration of cells and energy in a person, sometimes to extent of searing a wound closed. This is very strenuous for large wounds though, so Kaya tends to avoid it when she attempts to actually use her powers. That alone is very rare, because it relies on her sin not being quite so active... and her fear to be not quite so great.

Related to lust, and the deeply set sadism in her, she can makes someone feel all of the pain she has felt with a simple touch. However, instead of making it agony, Kaya is able to make them enjoy it with the same pleasure she derives from watching them squirm. The sheer conflict of these feelings is enough to sometimes break a mind, making it very easy for her to turn her power to revive cells to destroying them. However, both of these require physical contact with living creatures and Kaya simply does not have the emotional willpower to do that. Also, the energy it takes for prolonged periods is very high and leaves her weak for many hours afterwards. And the working with cells is so minor, the life is only temporary.

II: Holy Form Theme: Tsubasa Remix


Appearance:

A Valkyrie in form, at least in part, she stands as a young woman, almost as she is supposed to. Confident, warm, almost able to take charge over the situation, her auburn hair is brushed out of her face and tied into a braid. Kaya even stands a little taller, dressed in a pure white robe tied with golden thread that falls down to her ankles. Her feet are remarkably bare, as though she is now suddenly too cool for shoes. On her back are large black wings, ones that look like a raven's. They are incredibly powerful, meant strictly for traveling long distances.

In this form she will look you in the eyes and still remain silent, displaying emotion and command through the grey gaze. In her good hand is a silver scythe, taking the place of a spear. She also only answers to Syr.

Artefact: An adamant flower with blue petals rests upon the center of her collarbone, a lotus. It is remarkable in the fact that it appears at first glance to be attached to her skin. As a human it transfers over to her left hand as a sapphire ring, the beauty of which is at odds with her general initial mousy and hand-me-down appearance. The ring rests on her mutilated hand, as though to take the focus of stares on it instead.

Powers:

One of her main powers in this form is the ability to sense pain and negate it. If something can hurt someone else or they are a danger, she will inform of it and if possible, prevent it from happening. Sometimes however, she cannot, as the precision of how the pain will occur is impossible for her to grasp. Also distance is a problem, preventing her from helping on the other side of a football field as well, for example.

A second power is greater control over her manipulation of living cells. Channeled through her scythe, a small slice if used properly, it can proceed to spread and kill more cells, only able to be stopped by amputating the place that was cut. However, depending on her thoughts when she was transformed, it might accidentally heal who she cut, which she can only do when in physical contact still. It's not fun and no matter her confidence, Syr gets queasy about it.

Her third power is to separate souls from their bodies and lead them to death peacefully, soothing their agony to make the transition from one plane to another easier. A mission of Valkyries is to take the souls gathered on battlefields and send them to the place they must be, Heaven or Hell. If someone is dying, without any hesitation, she is bound to go to them and soothe their soul and free it. Because of this, it narrows her focus and leaves her open for attack. Also, she's not very discriminatory so be careful that she doesn't take your soul as well.

Her final power is to twitch things toward another event, assisting the future to head in one way or another. Perhaps someone wants to fight someone desires to win a losing battle. If the assistance is so desperately required, she will supply them with either a bit of energy or ability to do so. It is used only to turn the tables of the one who needs help into their favor. It supplies the user with energy. Depending on what its used for, Syr is drained of that amount of power from herself. Plus it is only temporary, just enough so maybe the person can finish this fast.

III: Hell Form Theme: Happy Maria! Band Remix

Appearance:

This form of Syr is very similar to the human Kaya. However, it's clothed in sinister darkness. The wings are also now a swan-feather cloak, enabling her to become a swan humanoid creature. Her fingers are now clawed and both hands perfectly healed, enabling the scythe to become much more deadly in her hands. Her hair has become wild as though ripped everywhere by wind, blocking now red irises and black sclera. Her clothes are now a very... revealing dress, ripped and showing more skin that under normal circumstances would simply not happen. She remains barefoot, even though Kaya is now sickly pale and thin, almost spindly.

In this form, Kaya doesn't only speak, she displays, indulges, wraps herself in her desires. Her voice, unlike the meager whisper of before, is deep, harshly sultry, as though not merely enticing, but anticipating the euphoria that awaits.

Powers:

Her first power is her ability to transform into a mix of swan and humanoid monster. The cloak enables this and allows her the ability to maintain flight and dive underwater for short periods of time. However, there is a "pin" on her neck that if pressed will end the transformation and have her drop like a stone.

Next Kaya is able to manipulate someone's mind, combining pain and pleasure into an illusion that leaves them a quivering mess of drool and flesh or kills them from overexposure. The illusion is very thorough, enticing each sense in a euphoric sear of conflicting wonder. It can normally only be done to one person at a time and requires her to be vulnerable for a brief moment while she slips into the cracks in the heart.

Her third is an odd magnetism, attracting enemy and ally alike to follow her and her words. It is like drinking a great deal of mead (honey wine) and falling into a drunken stupor. Even if it is only temporary, it leaves the mind and body vulnerable enough for Kaya to get a few good hits in. Or it doesn't if you're an angry drunk. It varies on the type of person you are when intoxicated. People can snap out of it if possessing a lustful desire more powerful than the illusion caused by the feeling of mead in your system.

Finally, Kaya can grant a person one wish. This seemingly kind power is quite dangerous. It grants the literal will of the desire and proceeds to act from there, twisting the truth of the lustful passion the person actually wanted in their hearts, darkening circumstances that may have been harmless into purposeful slights and humiliations. It drives the person or enemy insane and causes them to eventually end their life. Of course, this is a very taxing power, but Kaya believes it fitting enough.

"What Tama wishes for is..."

Well, I'm seein' two claims on Lust and Kindness! Wonder who'll get this one first, and which one'll have to edit.

Kiklion, I'm noticing that you're putting multiple forms for your Hell Form. Please try keeping it down to a single form, as one should be more than sufficient--both in super-awesomeness and ability. Also, concerning your powers, you'll need to include a real balancing act in their effects (for example, Leonard's gravity manipulation puts so much strain on him that he has trouble moving, and Akira can't move at all while he's using his force field), and not all of them have to be directly related to the Sin and Virtue you take. (Take a look at the other character sheets posted so far for a few examples, both Holy and Hell. You'll notice arguably unrelated powers still being applicable to the characters' sins and virtues.)

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

For the multiple forms, I asked Warden about this and he said it was fine. The reason I'm adding multiple forms is because it's relating to Cameron's third power.

For the balancing act, I didn't include the issues with these powers since most if not all of them more than likely wouldn't cause a major issue other than what would come with learning how to wield the power in the first place, but I can write jot those down quickly.

And I know my powers don't have to be related, I just really want them to. X)

Gender: Female
Nature: Brave
I: Normal Form

Name: Melia Joneh

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Sin: Envy

Virtue: Temperance

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Personality: Melia is a calm and collected girl...most of the time. When she sees two people madly in love, her powers activate without her knowing due to her anger of seeing love right in front of her eyes. She will only do it if they are strangers, however, and only if they are boyfriend/girlfriend. Not when they are married or engaged.

To her friends, Melia is a caring girl who will help them if they need it. To her enemies, Melia is cold and doesn't mind if something bad happens to them, though she will help them if the trouble they are in is lethal. To complete strangers, Melia is neutral, and will eventually decide if they are friend or foe. It doesn't take much to become friends with her, but same with becoming her enemy.

History: Melia was born into a rich family, but with an easily excited father and an over-protective mother. They were targeted by robbers or murderers a lot, but the guards they had hired kept them safe.

When Melia was ten, something....bad happened. While in the park, some murderers tried to kidnap Melia and kill her. Though the guards that came with them had saved her, her parents argued over who caused her to get in danger, breaking the bond between them. Eventually, they divorced, and Melia's mother went away, with a third of the money, while Melia stayed with her father. Her mother visited at times, but only to see Melia, and not her father. When they did talk, it always was fighting. Seeing love everywhere else, Melia got angry that her parents could not feel love, but others could. This caused the feeling of envy in her heart.

However, unlike her father, who lost control every time her mother was mentioned, Melia could keep her control, and wanted everyone else to as well. This gave birth to the temperance in her heart.

Powers: On her side of envy, Melia is able to erase the love between two people of the opposite gender, except herself, though...she kinda doesn't...you know...nevermind. It's small, and can't take ALL the love, but just enough to make them only be slightly friends. It only works 75 percent of the time, though.

For temperance, Melia can cause someone out of control to go back into control. Again, it's small, but it has a 90 percent chance of working.

II: Holy Form

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Artefact: Melia's artifact is the small tiara on her head. The jewel is normally blue, but it will change color depending on the power she is using.

Powers:
Levitation-Aquiring the power of wind, Melia is able to fly, not super duper high, but high enough. Her tiara's jewel becomes white when she does this, and she cannot use any other powers when flying.

Calm Waves-Harnessing the power of the ocean, Melia draws water from any nearby source(s), fills it with heavenly magic, and aims it at the enemy. During this, The jewel becomes a lighter blue.

Soothing Flora-Using the power of nature, Melia is able to grow vines and flowers to trap the opponent. The tiara gem becomes green when this is used.

Heaven's Purification-Calling the very power of heaven itself, Melia sings a beautiful song that can purify evil. The tiara's jewel becomes yellow when she uses this power.


III: Hell Form

Appearance: (no dragon thing, obviously)
Spoiler:


Powers: Her evil power comes from the chain-if the part of the chain that is on her leg is removed, Melia will be purified. She can also normally fly-no powers are needed for that here.

Stormy Hurricane-Making a tornado and surrounding it with a black fire, Melia shoots it at the opponent.

Rough Seas-Filling the surrounding water with dark magic, Melia fires it at the enemy, which actually is painful due to the amount of magic she puts in.

Rumbling Earth-Tearing parts of rock and dirt from the ground, Melia surrounds the enemy with them.

Hell's Corruption-Calling the dark energy from hell itself, Melia fills normal people with it, making them soulless, while she feeds off of the energy from them.

Saber of Hell-Melia uses a sword called the Saber of Hell, and uses it like a regular sword, but it it unbreakable and is much more powerful than a normal blade.

The girl you just called fat? She is overdosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for our country. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying. Copy and paste this into your sig if you think bullying is wrong. You never know what it's like until you walk a mile in their shoes. -Taken from chef30

Well, now I can't wait to see what kind of forms you plan on coming up with. (If I see a reference to Mara in the final form I'm gonna bust a gut.) Though, with the multiple forms, do you really need to shapeshift? xD

The reason I wanted to see a good limit on the powers was that your Sin's powers will get indefinitely stronger as long as they take effect, unless the Lust Empowerment doesn't work on effects induced by Cameron's other abilities or it has a cap on its power.

I will be moving my account to Songbird over the course of immediately. The signature will stay as is for posterity and reference.

Done.

It was fun to make the powers in her holy and hell forms.
