Heartbound Chronicles - Sign-Up

Post by Taegan on Fri Jan 20, 2012 8:35 pm

"Emotion is a complex psychophysiological experience of an individual's state of mind."
Many argue it's what truly distinguishes humans from animals. So what would living in a world void of emotions be like?
That has for some time now been the biggest fear of the inhabitants of a magical world unknown to the Earth's men. The world of Dania, a world of magic and adventure all around. A world where young Magicians grow in the magical academy of Schola Valhalla, where all young people go to learn more about their magical talents using the power of their Teleins, magical items that they use to metamorph into more powerful forms. A world that is, today, in danger, as is the Earth. Dark clouds of black and white are drifting in, blown by the threat of feral monsters thirsty for the emotions humans in the two worlds cherish and hate, and action must be taken to stop them.
Within Schola Valhalla, the wise words of an old sage, nowadays arguably senile, prophesy the arrival of a group of young people from the other world to fight the evil forces. And so hope is born for some as the rumour runs the land. Hope that the power that resides in the prestigious students of Schola Valhalla will save the two worlds.

And on Earth, we find those that will concretize the prophecy...

Sign-up form:
Code:
[b]Name:[/b] First and last.
[b]Age:[/b] 10-22 seems reasonable.
[b]Appearance:[/b] What the character normally looks like. Image or description.
[b]Bio:[/b] A bit of the character's background story, country, personality and whatever else.
[b]Item:[/b] An item the character usually carries around, preferably something with meaning.
[b]Emotion:[/b] An emotion the character will represent. While it should relate to the character's starting personality, it will in no way affect character development. Meaning just because a character represents Sadness, for instance, it doesn't mean they'll be sad forever. This is just symbolic, there isn't much of a distinction between positive and negative emotions here as opposed to the lack of any emotions threatening the worlds. List with many emotions at the end of the post. Love, Hatred, Hope and Sorrow aren't allowed.
[b]Telein:[/b] The character's amulet, which will be born from the item specified above. It can be anything from a flute, to a wand, to a hat, or whatever. It would be called Telein of -represented emotion here-.
[b]Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance:[/b] You know what it is. Your character undergoes a transformation sequence that can go from badass to extremely fruity and acquires a new look and powers. It is advised, though not  mandatory, that this and the acquired powers are loosely based on the represented emotion. Image or description. The Telein [strike]will disappear[/strike](optional) while the transformation is active.
[b]Quote:[/b] Incantation that activates the Telein and the transformation, it should end in the name of the Telein, example: "Stuff, stuff, stuff -- Telein of Hysteria!".
[b]Power:[/b] The powers the character acquires when transformed. Keep it weak for now, they can probably be expanded throughout the story. Detail. Detail!
[b]Other:[/b] Anything else we might've forgotten.

I love the lack of a sign-up or any decent explanation.

There is a sign-up that, if complemented with the story, is enough of an explanation, I'd imagine.

Oh, you did that box thing. You know hysteria comes from "uterus" right?

I might consider joining this one, if you hold Anger.

HYSTERectomy. Removal of the uterus. Female HYSTERia. Olde timey diagnosis frequently given to women for all manner of "symptoms," which was treated with genital massage. Gave rise to the vibrator, AKA the first mechanical household appliance, & the general term "hysteria."

The more you know!

Name: Creed
Age: 17
Appearance:
Creed:
Bio: Creed wasn't born with that name. He wasn't born with any name. The boy who would come to name himself Creed was left on the doorstep of an orphanage in Paris, France; a supposedly well respected and highly praised orphanage. Sadly that was a hell of a lie. The children there were treated like animals and even law enforcement looked the other way. Never given a name or sense of identity he came up with his own. He and the other children would sneak books in and the smarter kids would teach the others. It was a miserable existence. Creed had but one friend, a girl who also lacked a name like him. She always had a silver pocket watch with her. Eventually the two escaped from the orphanage and lived a life on the run for a year. This came to end when Creed wasn't paying attention. An incoming car would have struck him but she tackled him out of the way and took the hit instead. She died almost instantly. Creed could only recover her pocket watch, which was now broken from the scene. Then he ran. Two years ago he managed to wriggle his way into the favor of an upperclass family only to witness their downfall for some sort of tax evasion or something. Once more he lost something. After this he decided caring took too much effort and has since become a drifter.
Item: A tarnished, silver, pocket watch which is broken.
Emotion: -
Telein: -
Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance: -
Quote: -
Power: -
Other: Enter the omnipresent mysterious pretty boy character.

Name: Lumyr Raizen
Age: 17
Appearance:
Spoiler:
Bio:
Lumyr has been born and raised in New York city his entire life, living with his mom and dad. This by no means implies he leads a normal life. He's been somewhat of a bad apple due to the fact that his dad's involved in a gang and his mom shoots up drugs all day. Therefore he basically has to do everything himself a lot, both financial and house wise. Due to being neglected, he has developed something of a cold personality due to having no one he can connect with on top of it, and can sometimes be misunderstood for what he says due to a lack of proper social interaction. The only person who's connected with him was his grandfather, whom died of a heart attack a few years back. As he goes on further in life, he starts to wonder if he'll ever meet any real friends.
Item: An umbrella that he takes with him wherever he goes. It was his grandfather's, and according to him, his grandfather's before him as well.
Spoiler:
Emotion: Grief.
Telein:
Spoiler:
Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance:
Spoiler:
Quote: Cold winds of nature, lend me your blade... Telein of grief.
Power: When first transformed, there are sakura petals scattered around Lumyr's feet, enchanted to be razor sharp by magic. To get these up and flowing in the air to hit its mark, the umbrella can fire off gusts of wind when swung.
Other: Inb4 this is totally like Byakuya.

Name: Noctis Talea.

Age: 21.

Appearance: Noctis has fairly pale skin, a point of contention with her. Her hair is just longer than chin length in the front, and slightly shorter in the back, held in place by a menagerie of hairpins. Her eyes are a dark shade of brown. She has a proclivity for dark clothes, usually simple things with a jacket, or hoody over it. She also wears a pair of thick rimmed black glasses with the lenses popped out.
Noctis.

Bio: Noctis, Noct for short, was born in the USA, New York City, to be precise. Noct was raised by her single, work-aholic mother. She never knew her father, though it didn't matter much to her. She didn't have time to feel unwanted and unloved by him with her mother more than picking up the slack.
Raised by textbooks, video games, movies, and the internet, Noct quickly learned to fend for herself in a big empty apartment. When it came to schooling Noctis excelled, but this served only to get her kicked out of her home sooner than she should have. While away at boarding school somewhere in Rich Kid, Connecticut, she got word that her mother died. Since she didn't have a will written, everything went to next of kin, Noctis, though had her mother expected her death Noctis doubted she would have found a penny. Then again, who expects to get hit by a bus?
The only thing Noctis kept from her mother, aside from her credit line, was a pair of glasses. When she got them the lenses were shattered, so she popped them out. She wears them now to remind herself of how her mother saw her as inadequate. The idea was to drive her forward to prove her mother wrong, but in practice it only seems to reaffirm her own lingering insecurities, and self doubt.

Item: A pair of thick rimmed black glasses with the lenses popped out.

Emotion: Angst.

Telein: Telein of Angst, a pair of glasses much the same as before, but with lenses, and gilded with a thin mother of pearl inlay running the length of both temple arms.

Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance: Noct's eyes lose most of the color they have and become almost a shiny silver color. In contrast to her eyes, the rest of her always seems to be cast in a shadow, as if standing under a raincloud. The edges of her self, mostly hair and whatever clothes she is wearing, become wispy, and seem to drift in and out of the visible spectrum, as if being lost in shadow.

Quote: "Be secure in your insecurity, trust in your self doubt, and take solace in your anxiety, Telein of Angst."

Power: She can manipulate her shadow's physical properties, ranging from density to size and shape.

Other: A tad lazy, and sarcastic.

Name: Roatha Arelaz
Age: 17.
Appearance: Red sweatshirt & jeans, unkempt brown hair, blue-green eyes.
Bio: Roatha grew up around Noctis. He became more reclusive after being jumped several times, causing the pair to develop a sort-of friendship. She found out he was being attacked & gave him a police baton to defend himself, something he reluctantly accepted because he hated violence. One day, shit got real & someone pulled a knife on him. After being stabbed, he blacked out. He thought he'd died. When he came to, he was sitting in his bedroom with a cauterized stab wound, having no idea how he got there. The attackers, it turns out, were each stabbed at least a dozen times, & one died from their injuries. Because the case was so weak--no weapon was ever found, no direct reliable witness, & it probably would have been self-defense anyway--the charges were dropped.
Item: A baton with ornate ruby depictions of; The Battle of Ar Megiddo, a tribal war in Africa, The Carthaginian Wars, The Crusades, The French Revolution, WWI, & WWII.
Emotion: Anger.
Telein: The Telein of Anger is a black rapier with a flamberged blade & a basket hilt, covered in numerous small spikes.
Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance: After letting out a roar of anger, red lightning emanates from the baton & surrounds his body. When he's next visible, his sweatshirt has become more like a cloak, frayed at the edges. The baton has changed into the weapon above, & he's surrounded by a strange red haze. He also experiences some physical changes. His eyes turn red, his teeth appear slightly sharper, & his voice is deeper, more gutteral.
Quote: Inconsolate fury to sear the heavens, unbridled rage to eviscerate my foes, lash out in madness, Telein of Anger!
Power:
1. The haze can be concentrated to different areas--the sword, the arm, the torso, etc.--when this is done, the area becomes stronger & more resiliant. The more is concentrated to a certain area, the stronger it becomes, at the expense of other areas. Consequently, in his base state, all of his body receives a slight boost in strength & defense.
2. His speed greatly increases. His running speed is about tripled, & when jumping, he can move fluidly through the air, with flexibility that wouldn't ordinarily be possible.
3. He has a projectile attack. He can fire a single bolt of lightning.
Other: When in the transformed state, Roatha's personality is dramatically different. He becomes violent, delighting in combat. He has some concern for his allies, but not much. If addressed, he will insist that he doesn't know a Roatha, & introduce himself as Irae.

Need to figure out what makes Roatha so damn angry before I can do much more.

Now I just need to figure out what the item is & why it's important.

Last thing to take care of is the incantation.

There, done.

Name: Hitomi Alla
Age: 18
Appearance: Stand 5'4" white skin, short cropped blone hair, green eyes, and light blue plastic oval lensed glasses. Wears a light blue sweater over a white collared shirt, dark blue knee high skirt, white knee high socks, and white plimsols.
Bio: An asocial bibliophile who spends the majority of her time in the library, the book store, or home alone. Her lifestyle results in her having little to no people skills and by choice she conveys few if any emotions, but is prone to violent outbursts.

While searching for a book at home she stumbled upon the book mentioned below. Finding nothing on the exterior she opened it and found that each page was as blank as the exterior of the book. Putting it back on the shelf, she continued on her way as if nothing happened. The next day, that same book was sitting on her end table when she woke up opened to the front page with the words Telein of Curiosity written in black ink.
Item: A black hardcover book with no text anywhere on the spine or covers.
Emotion: Curiosity
Telein: Telein of Curiosity is the above mentioned book.
Metamorphosis/Henshin Appearance: Gold letters appear at random on the cover of the book and disappear as quickly as they appeared and continue doing so, sometimes forming words, sometimes not. Also a pale blue light radiates from the pages.
Quote: "Bound by knowledge and the desire to know all, I vanquish those who would oppose me, Telein of Curiosity!"
Power:
1. A barrier forms in front of her repelling all that tries to get within arms reach regardless of whether or not they're friend or foe.
2. Ice erupts from the ground around her to intercept attacks or others.
3. From the book, the pale blue light gathers and fires at a wide straight forward beam.
Other: Everyone's favorite Emotionless Girl, combatting emotionlessness?

I'll get to the rest later.

Don't accept that. For starters, nonchalance is not an emotion.
